USS Sheppard Dry Docking Ceremony

USS Sheppard Dry Docking Ceremony

While we reflect upon what made Fleet Captain Marabana’s actions so truly exceptional, we should also remember all that he shares with so many from his officers throughout UFS. So Captain Marabana chose to commit himself completely to this ship; he chose repeatedly to lead his fellow officers with excellence; he chose to test himself against the absolute best, earning the Commanding position of this astounding ship. It is because our officers that make these courageous choices, both in this time and across generations, that we have the chance to excel and grow.  That’s the nature of courage, not being unafraid, but confronting fear and danger and performing in a selfless fashion.  He showed his guts, he showed his training; how he would put it all on the line for his officers.  Today the crew of the USS Sheppard, NCC 74679 was recognized for all their hard work, abilities, and accomplishments, as the ship made it’s way home to Pinastri. I have tremendous respect for this crew in all their hard work and dedication. Today was not only an end to a wonderful adventure for the crew of the USS Sheppard, but a milestone in each of their lives.
