On January 9th, Team Kraken ended the 2015 Long Duration Mission by beating the other four squadrons and winning Round 8. With Kraken's victory, the LDM ends; all that remains is a bit of math and then I'll announce the winner of the Top Squadron Award for the 2015 Long Duration Mission.
Collin led his squadron to victory as captain of the round. Orion was his first officer.
The two of them made a great team. Collin had his notebook with their strategies well thought out and read for execution.
Kevin and Dakota were hands down the best dynamic duo ever to occupy the Damage Control and Engineering stations.
What is even more impressive is how Kraken took the round's best team award with only seven of their team on the bridge. It was two stations for everyone. I quickly learned to get out of the way as they darted from station to station doing their best to keep the Magellan operational in very difficult circumstances.
Much of the round was spent at red alert. Their strategy was similar to the other four teams once they stopped and considered all available information on RA and the alien ship's powers.
Here are the seven starfleet samurai, poised for their final team picture on the Magellan bridge.
Orion, Scott, Collin L., Collin E., Dakota, Savannah, and Kevin.
After the team debriefing, we found Kraken's coach Christine running a private Galileo mission. She was unable to be on hand for their mission due to her Galileo responsibility. Christine was excited and proud of her squad.
Sadly, the Kraken Squadron is no more. The name is being retired along with Nautilus and Prometheus. The Lion, Tiger, and Cobra Squadrons will take their places in the 2016 Long Duration Mission roster. The teams are listed here. If you're interested in joining us for this year's challenge, become a member of the Voyager Club. We are sixty five cadets strong and always looking for outstanding students to compliment our ranks.
Congratulations Kraken! You've done yourselves proud.
