|Re:||Clarification for Qualifications for the Masadan Occupation Medal (ND 18APR-02)|
As of the date of this Order, by my hand, and by the authority of the Sovereign, Queen of Manticore, Elizabeth III, and in order to clarify requirements and insure that the most members possible can earn the award, I am providing the following clarification after discussing the matter with the First Lord of the Admiralty (FLA).
The Masadan Occupation Medal “is issued to TRMN members for participation on behalf of The Royal Manticoran Navy at a function of another fan organization.”
In addition to the examples listed in the Awards manual, the FLA has indicated that the award was also intended to recognize those members who participated at conventions run by other fan organizations. These conventions do not have to be run by other organized fandom groups (STARFLEET, KAG, Battlestar fan clubs, etc..) . They could also be run by fan societies (i.e., Bay Area Fan Association, Albuquerque Science Fiction Society, The Star Trek Association of Towson, Inc. (STAT), and other similar groups).
However, it is important to note that any company/corporation that runs a con “for profit” (Wizard World, Creation Entertainment, etc..) would not qualify as fan organizations and participation at these cons would not qualify for the Masadan Occupation Medal.
Additionally, please note that simple attendance at a qualifying Con/Event qualifies for the award, you must PARTICIPATE (present a panel, work the table/booth. Security, con staff, etc..) in your TRMN persona and uniform (or con minimum) to qualify for the award.
This order made under my hand will be effective 0001 hours 11-APR-18.
Honour of the Queen!
