HEPHAESTUS is the Greek name for the roman god of the forge, Vulcan. Birmingham has the world’s largest iron statue, that of the roman god, Vulcan. We named our Starfleet chapter the Hephaestus to give us ties to our city and to Star Trek, which has had its own Vulcan since 1966. Hephaestus forged armor and weapons for the gods. We create our own “armor and weapons” here, in our newsletter, so it is called The Anvil.

F r o m t h e R ea d y R o o m Greetings,

Happy New Year Capt. MarkAdam Miller cohephaestus@bellsouth.net

XO Briefing Here we are aboard the starship Hephaestus, poised on the brink of a new year, full of excitement, adventure, and... oops. Sorry, I got carried away. However, we are in a new year full of potential, if we choose to embrace it. So in that spirit, we are considering several changes but I’ll let MarkAdam tell you about that. Meanwhile, here in the XO’s office, there are some ideas percolating in my brain. In connection with one of these ideas, let me pose several questions. Would you want to live on the Hephaestus? And would you, if you could, choose to be a different life form, i.e. a Klingon, Vulcan, or Caitan? Or maybe you would choose to be someone from history, say a Civil War soldier from Alabama who finds himself aboard the Hephaestus. Since this is fiction, the sky’s the limit, so to speak (no pun intended). I have an idea for a game that we could play at one of our socials. But for the game you need to answer the above questions. I’ll leave it there for now. More next month. Pat Hicks USS HEPHAESTUS

Ship’s Log Dec. 5, 2011 -- Business Meeting: We discussed the success of the Fall Feast which added $45 to our treasury. That December’s social would be a game night to have a Dalmuti tournament with a prize of $25. Pete, Starfleet’s Quarter Master, talked about the new Challenge Coin. Also he has made a deal to get 3D Star Trek poster from Rod Roddenberry for a cheaper price. Local events for December include Model Train exhibit at McWane Center and Lights at the Zoo. Kingdom Comics will have Santa Spiderman on the 17th. Attendance: 6 people. Dec. 17, 2011 – Social: We played Dalmuti with Pete winning the $25 dollar gift certificate to Books-a-Million. Attendance: 10 people. Personnel Updates:

No personnel updates were reported.

Starfleet Marine Corps Greetings, The new Commandant's Challenge is to donate food to your local food banks. This is a challenge to all SFMC personnel and is reported on the unit reports. The OIC of the 2 BDE BGen Oliver Savander has advised that Neil Yawn has been promoted to Major General. 1 BN (Alabama) has had a few changes: The 640th MSG (Montgomery) was deactivated. The 646th MSG (Hartsel) was activated. The 5th BN now has a unit which is stationed in Cuba. We are looking for new Marines to join the unit from the USS Hephaestus. BGen Neil Yawn, OIC 1 BN, 2BDE, OIC 654 MSG
