Invictus: Stepping Down.

Invictus: Stepping Down.

We all change, when you think about it, we’re all different people; all through our lives, and that’s okay. Or so The Doctor’s Timelord wisdom tells us. And it’s true. However, it saddens us to confirm a new change as we lose a valuable member of the Captains Table within Quadrant 2.

this past weekend we have received a formal letter from Invictus’ Commanding Officer Mark Barnham tending his resignation in his position. We’ve always cited that real life comes first and for Mark, like many of us, that has sadly came to pass when it comes to Captaincy of the unit as in recent months Mark has excelled in a new career and new directions.

It’s with heavy heart that the Admiralty Board have accepted the resignation of Mark Barnham as captain of the USS Invictus and confirm that he will stand down from his post as of 78035.6 (Saturday 13th).

In his time since taking on the CO role Mark has been key to developing a close knit community and stood as a mark of pride for the fleet as an advocate of some incredible causes over the years.

Mark’s departure leaves some very big shoes to fill, however we’ll follow with pride seeing his achievements to come and wish him nothing but the best in his future away from the chair.

As Mark had stated within private groups, applications are now welcome from any members of Invictus, or any member within the NE area, who wish to take on the daunting task of following in Mark’s footsteps. Applications can be made directly to the Director of Fleet Administration via the usual channels.

Established in late 2019, Invictus was created as a hub for members of the North East – particularly those in the NE post codes – to enjoy each others company and live the IDIC life through meet ups, events and more as part of our mission of positivity and embracing the humanitarian message of the Star Trek Universe.

The Invictus will be returning to base at Starbase Europa as of this coming weekend for debriefing ahead of a new CO being appointed.

We wish the best of luck to all applicants in the role and would like to personally thank Mark for stepping up to the challenge and leading the crew through an extremely trying time for all of us.

Thank you Mark.
