HMS Stormbringer (SD-34)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

HMS Stormbringer (SD-34) was a Sphinx-class Superdreadnought within Eighth Fleet. Commanded by FADM Lord Johnathan Simmons, Viscount New Cornwall, RMN, Stormbringer claimed Denver, Colorado as her charter city, but claimed the whole American state of Colorado as its area of operations.


Stormbringer was brought into commission on 22 May 2010, commanded by then-FADM Lord Johnathan Simmons. There was no official BuShips Directive; the commissioning was referenced in the annual report by then-LCDR Anne Zecca, Director of Membership Operations in August 2011. This was the first ship in TRMN, and since was formed before we were an official fan association, ship names were not approved by BuNine. The new captain was also the captain of STARFLEET International ship USS Stormbringer, so he simply convinced most of her crew to simply sign up in TRMN.

They adopted English naval tradition as they developed the chapter, and as they traveled the country promoting TRMN as a whole, for which then-FADM Simmons was raised to the peerage as the first Viscount New Cornwall. (The title "Viscount" was later eliminated as a valid peer level.)

By 01 Feburary 2011, Simmons stepped down as First Space Lord due to a massive heart attack (and requiring quadruple bypass surgery), and he became a mere captain. No one stepped up to take over the chapter, so the Stormbringer was decommissioned in late July 2011.[1] Members of the chapter who remained in TRMN eventually became part of HMS Enterprise a year later. Since Stormbringer was created before ship names were standardized, it was decided that the name be stricken from the rolls.
