As some of you may know, I have had a lot going on in my personal life as of late. A big move and a new job means that I am having more demands on my time than I had before. As a result, I have been a little less than active over recent months. In addition, I have a number of characters and command responsibilities in Obsidian Fleet that I have to balance with my writing time.
I have been thinking long and hard about this, and I think the proper course of action is to resign as Executive Officer of the Endeavour. I’m stretched a little thin right now, and need to downsize the number of characters I play and the number of command responsibilities I have in the fleet, so that I can do fewer things better instead of more things half-assed.
This had been something that I had been thinking about for a while, and not something I take lightly. The Endeavour holds a special place in my heart, as I was on board for over two years and three COs, and saw many people come and go and had a lot of fun on our missions. However, in spite of all the good times I had on the Endeavour, I think it would be best for me to resign and best for the Endeavour if I were to open up the XO spot to someone who can be more active.
Further, with the resignation of the former CO, I had wanted to stay on to assist Cmdr. Farragut with the transition. As his XO and his TGCO, I can say that Cmdr. Farragut has exceeded my expectations. The Endeavour is in good hands with him, and I feel confident that with an XO who is able to be more active and more hands on, he will bring the Endeavour to new heights, and I look forward to continuing our working relationship as his TGCO.
In-character, I think it would be best to simply have Eahar take a position at Starfleet Academy, a better place to raise a family than on a starship, and fade out. Who knows – perhaps I might be able to pop in sometime for a cameo. I will try to catch up and write Eahar out over the coming week or two, and give our good commander a chance to search for a replacement.
