Chronological History

Before joining Starfleet

Groznin Smith is Denobulan Human hybrid currently serving as a HCO officer aboard the USS Astraeus. It being the third ship he has served on after the USS Blackwell & USS Gorkon. He was born in London on Earth in 2372, as his parents were stationed there during the latter stages of the Dominion War, but was quickly moved around to the USS Kent due to his parents Starfleet career as the war came to a close.

As a young child Groznin lived aboard the USS Kent with his parents, it was a happy time and his young childhood was pleasant being known by lots of the crew as the son of the officers, and although he doesn’t remember much of this from what he does remember he looks back on fondly.

During his pre teen years his parents were transferred to be stationed on Deep Space 9, and it was here Groznin spent his adolescence. It was comfortable and as a teenager was given freedom to move about the station freely, in the public spaces. It was during his time on DS9 he met the Klingon Upex and his wife through their child Jang who Groznin was mentoring as apart of a programme with the stations school system. As he mentored Jang he also grew to knew the family and become close friends with them to the point he was asked to enter a blood oath by Upex to protect Jang If anything was to happen to himself and his wife. Honoured Groznin accepted and sadly he had to fulfil his blood oath and take Jang in at the age of 18 when the house of Morik killed Upex and his wife when they were on a diplomatic mission for the Federation.

The Klingon High Council wasn’t too pleased with Groznin adopting Jang and taking a caretaker role of the House of Upex but due to his honour in going through with the blood oath they allowed him to go forward with it so long as he didn’t make any important decisions for the house without consulting the empire first.

His parents were not a fan of this due to a distrust of Klingons they had gained during the Klingon-Federation war of 2372-2373 in which they had lost many friends while they were on Earth having just had Groznin. They detested the idea so much they disowned Groznin, they didn’t tell him but they had also been reassigned and left that same night for the USS Wall Street. Leaving Groznin with Jang and no one else to turn too.

After some talking Groznin asked his great grandparents on Earth if they could house Jang while he was at the academy, realising what it meant, and that Groznin was intent on fulfilling the oath he had made they accepted and treated Jang as their own grandson. Jang grew close to Drok & Decri during this time, as well as with Groznin when he visited after classes.

At Starfleet Academy

At the academy Groznin took a variety of courses most of which would help him with his primary focus of security and as a secondary tactical but also courses that would help him in his every day life while in Starfleet.

One of the additional courses he decided to take was one in Astrophysics. He started out by attending the classes on his own merit not officially on the course, but was told by the professor running the course to keep on attending the classes he’d have to enrol in the course which he did. When he eventually graduated the two courses (General & Advanced) his professor was so happy at his graduation ceremony she gave him her personal congratulations for doing so well on her courses after originally just sitting in on them.

He took multiple language course including Klingon right the way though to the most advanced level. He decided to take the Klingon courses to help with Jang through the years. If he was to be raising a Klingon taking a Klingon language course to help in situations that may arise.

He bunked with Ferier Lanta (was Kian) for all four years of his academy life and became very close with the Trill, so much so Jang called him “Uncle Ferier”.

One of his favourite past times while at the academy was watching sports of varying varieties.

Ships served on

USS Blackwell - Groznin’s first posting was to the Olympic class USS Blackwell under the command of Commander Theo Whittaker. It was a very rocky start for him, having major panic attack and breakdowns which eventually lead to him being transferred off the ship after applying for a transfer to a new vessel. He was reassigned to the USS Gorkon within a few weeks.

USS Gorkon - After being reassigned Groznin felt much more comfortable. It was probably just nerves of being an Ensign but it felt the right thing to do and it paid off. Since joining the Gorkon he’s received a promotion and made many friends, even finding who he believes to be the love of his life. While he’s made mistakes, he’s hoping he can rectify them and make amends with those he’s hurt.

USS Astraeus - Groznin along with his patner Nova O'rien were given transfer orders suddnly, and they left the Gorkon without much time, only being able to say goodbye to those that were in shuttle bay. Groznin accepted the orders, as did Nova as it presented them both with interesting oppertunities they couldnt pass down. It was at this point Groznin also swapped duty roles to become a HCO officer. One of his reasons for accepting the orders.

USS Veritas - Groznin didn’t know he was going to be posted to the Veritas, while on his way to a Starbase for reassignment he fell through a subspace rift, reappearing on the USS Veritas, itself brings stuck in subspace. For ease and to save further travel Starfleet changed his transfer orders and he become a security officer aboard the ship. Later due to issues both on and off the Veritas Groznin took and extend LOA and followed his now Fiancée to Earth where she is now working

Hobbies & Interests

  • Old Earth pop culture - Groznin’s love for old earth pop culture came from when his parents were stationed aboard DS9. He took the interest while using a holoprogramme of an old earth Television Series in one of the Holodecks on board the station. Since then he has looked further into Old Earth and his love for it grows continually as he discovers more Books, and Media from the 20th & 21st Century.
  • Sport - While not very vocal about his passion for sport, of all kinds, Groznin has a deep love for it. It mostly grew when he was in the Academy taking day trips with friends in their time off to watch all kinds of sports being played on Earth from the far corners of the quadrant. His favourite of them all was the Earth sport of association football and grew to like a Bolian team situated in the surrounding area of the academy. Inside his bedside table is the replica shirt he bought when visiting the team one day. When he gets to watch a game he will always wear the shirt with pride.

Mission History

Groznins first mission was to the Planet Sikuna. A Romulan Colony world. He was apart of Commander Erin Reynolds away team, they went to what was called the verteron array. The point of the array was to perform multiple research taks. Other members of he away team included Lt. Tasha MacFarlane and Lt. Jocelyn Marshall. While searching the array for what they intended to go there for they discovered a room full of container these contained different types of liquids, they found out that they went into the ground and were slowly draining, the team then realised that they must be going somewhere. Of to the side past one of the tubes was a small hole in the ground big enough to fit down, checking the hole there was a bottom and the team decided to investigate.

When they were all down to the bottom of the hole safely they discovered a tunnel, slowly following the tunnel they discovered a console, trying to impress his seniors Groznin went straight over to the said console and tried to discover what was on it. What he didn’t realise was that next to him was a star ship hanger that held a Romulan Warbird. The Valor class D’delnor.

Very quickly to the teams surprise a group of Andorians quickly started to attack the away team, Groznin quickly ordered the rest of the team, as the only security officer in the team on a way that would be best to defend. Jo and Tasha covered each other and Groznin and Erin did the same. While it took a while and a small injury the team successfully took down the team, Groznin then proceeded to charge into enemy fire to try and divert the fire so that they could all be stunned. This didn’t go down well with the Commander. When he and Tasha searched the Andorians they found a patch on one of their arms, it was a mix between the Romulan and Andorian Imperial insignias. The team never did find out why that patch was there.

The team continued into the ship carefully, when they scanned the ship they found there was about a dozen or so Romulans & Andorians on board. The team realised they needed to take control of some systems on the ship so they could then eventually gain full control of the ship and stopping the threat to the Gorkon.

They procced to get to engineering, this was a key area in which they could take control of the key systems they needed. When they got there Engineering was deserted, this was a good thing as it meant they could work without being attacked or worse killed.

Groznin was tasked with finding out what weapons the ship had, the ship had all the normal weapons a hip would have phaser banks and torpedoes, among the regular weapons was a specialised weapon called the QT5 or quantum transfer Mk. V. the team never did fully figure out what the QT5 did, or did they use it in battle.

Groznin later helped Lt. Marshall with a task that would help the ship. He found it really interesting and although he hasn’t voiced it, he enjoyed it and hopes that he can help in engineering at more frequent opportunities. He hadn’t had a chance to help there before so he enjoyed the chance to help.

The team then watched as another away team consisting Of Lt. Sera zh'Aella , petty officer Brooks Gwinnett , Chief Cory Stoyer Ensign Emilia Krugol & Ensign Ferier Lanta beamed into engineering. This meant that the group now had the fire power to storm the bridge and take the D’delnor.

Splitting into smaller teams they took various positions around the bridge in maintenance tunnels and outside the turbo lifts. Taking position they all wait for a forcefield to drop. Storming the bridge Groznin and Ferier where two of the first on the bridge, Ferier took down a few of the Romulans and Andorians quickly, Groznin then pulled his phaser out but in the moment, he forgot to check what setting it was on, it clicked to kill and he shot his weapon. The Romulan then fell to the floor lifeless. Groznin then fell to the floor himself he didn’t know how to deal with what he had done. Commander Reynolds after seeing what he had done came over to him. She reassured him and told him to take the tactical console. He went to the console and took position performing all the tasks he needed to perform.

He checked the weapons, and told the crew what they had, 8 torpedoes. They needed another weapon, an unconventional one, Groznin had an idea.

He then came up with an idea to disable a pursuing Andorian Ship. He broke rank and ordered the crew around; his idea used the shuttles they had previously launched to try and take the ship out. He told Jo to connect to the shuttles computers to the D’delnor’s, he then asked Cory to set the warp cores to overload so he could then detonate them from his tactical console, this idea worked although he had referred to multiple senior officers by their first name. this wasn’t a good thing to do and he needed to think about what he said in the future.

With 20 seconds before the warbird self-destructed Groznin lowered shields so that the prisoners and injured Andorians & Romulans to the Gorkon. With the final 15 seconds remaining Groznin took an isolineaer chip from a console behind him as he did that his friend ferier was thrown from his console and injured. Moments earlier the same happened to the chief. Groznin inserted the chip into his Tactical console and quickly downloaded as much tactical information as he could. As it completed and he pulled it out the team was beamed out.

They were back on the Gorkon but many people were injured, Groznin helped the chief up and to sick bay, he got him onto a bio bed with Jo and then he got his own injuries seen to. It was a tough mission and a lot had happened. After this he went back to his quarters to fall asleep on his sofa with Jang next to him.

Shore leave after mission on Sikuna

During the shore leave after his first mission aboard the Gorkon, Groznin relaxed a lot, at the start he didn't do an awful lot, mainly just hung out with Jang. He had some drinks with friends including Erin Reynolds they talked about various things including groznins family in which she gave him some much needed advice. they shared a drink of Denobulan Loatc Cider. Taking Erin's advice he contacted his parents. his mother answered and still didn't want to know him. he did however find out about a younger sibling he now has. Although again he ddnt find out about much information about him as his mother clicked off as soon as he spoke. Later on during the shore leave the crew were treated to A camping trip on Trill during this Trip Groznin got very drunk with hus newly found friends, Sera zh'Aella, Genkos Sim and Karen Worthington the last of which has a crush on Groznin. they ate lots of marshmallows, he also taught Sera how to roast a marshmallow. on that same trip Groznin decided to tell Erin how he felt about her. He was quickly told she wasn't interested and their friendship is as of this point on a pinhead as to weather they can still be friends. after this he swiftly beamed to the Gorkon and stayed their till much later.

At the end of shore leave Admiral Reynolds gave out various awards, one of these was for Groznin the good conduct ribbon was awarded to him for helping take the bridge. Another Big thing happened during this shore leave Groznin was promoted from Ensign to Lieutenant JG, it was a big shock but happily accepted. his best friend from the academy Ferier Lanta was also promoted along with Genkos Sim, a few of his other friends were promoted from their ranks to the one higher.

In the Dream state Groznin was a member of the Maquis, A fighter to be precise. During the time he was in the dream he helped the other members of the crew find out who had beaten a captured member of starfleet up. Groznin was a part of 'Red' (Ayiana Sevo's) team and were tasked with discovering information out about how it happened. along the way strange things too place, including dancing isolinear chips, unicorns and a yellow brick road. Red's team discovered a man called Bondon who was the man who beat the starfleet officer (Quinn Reynolds) up. Also on his team was Samira Neathler (Newbie) & Ferier Lanta (Sticks) They all were members of the Skarbek Maquis cell. They took pride in it and weren't happy to find the man who had beaten their captive. They tried many things to persuade him too talk but he didn't, He eventually left just as Groznin was going to try to make him talk himself but alas Bondon left the dream state. They then were transported to a beach in which they realised the dream state was ending. The Newbie saw a ship which Groznin immediately When he jumped through he was transported to the Gorkon.

He woke up in Shuttle bay 2 with Genkos Sim & Jocelyn Marshall They immediately discovered a type 9 shuttle with a huge dent into it. They then went to work checking logs, and reports to figure out what had ahppned. it was discovered that an Ensign Kian was part of a conspiracy. The Ensign had somehow got a device onto the ship that was found out to be the device that put the crew of the Gorkon to sleep. After discovering they got onto the Gorkon through a Type 11 shuttle piloted by Crewman Jackson, it suffered a impulse failure and caused a crash into the type 9. Groznin was then called to the bridge were he discovered through the admiral that the Kian symbiont was no longer in the trill they knew as Kian, it had been put in a stasis pod and left to die in the vacuum of space. Groznin along with Lt. Marshall traced tritanium which was potentially in the stasis pod. After they had re aligned the sensors Groznin started the search, he discovered the tritanium and gave the coordinates which Ensign T'Sal looked onto and then started going towards it at impulse speed. when they arrived the Stasis pod was there. Groznin quickly transferred the symbiont too sickbay and alerted them of its arrival. Afterwards he started a level 1 diagnostic on Security and Tactical & went to check on Jang while it ran.

Shore leave after the Dream state.

Leaving the dream state initially was very odd. When he got back to check on Jang he found him watching Cartoons and eating pizza. which let Groznin know he was okay. Afew days after leaving the dream state, Groznin booked Jang a counselling session with the Gorkons new counsellor Ensign Corliss Fortune. while Jang was in this session Groznin went to Sto'Vo'Kor for a drink by himself. when he arrived he met Nova O'Rien a Human science officer who he shared a drink with. They talked about Jang and how Groznin came to adopt him. after a while they both left to go their duty posts for the day. Before they left they planned to meet to go out at some point and they planned o message each other when they could meet. Groznin then had to go to the Security and Tactical office aboard the Gorkon to meet the Temporary Secruity and Tactical chief while Sera was away on a Klingon exchange mission. The meeting went well and he planned to create a simulation team building exercise for Security & Tacitical which since yet hasn't come into fruition. Later on in Shore leave he and Nova met up and decided to go down to the moon of Panolon. While there they went to a small restaurant and ate some Bajoran dishes. They also saw Jocelyn Marshall & Erin Reynolds while getting their meals which was a short but nice encounter. After they ate their meal they went to watch some fireworks at a festival being thrown on the planet. They also ate some Uttaberry ice cream. After the fireworks finished They returned to Nova's quarters to watch a movie. A few more days later Groznin went for a check up with Lieutenant Genkos Sim Genkos discovered raised Dopamine levels. which gave an indication that Groznin was in love. although he let his friend know about Nova and that hey'd recently been on a date. The pair then shared a drink in Genkos' office.

End of Shore Leave party

During the shore leave party on the Hull Groznin spent most of his time with Nova O'Rien, Naktara Nightfur, Megan Bendyn & Vorin They spent the night together on the hull away from where the rest of the crew were partying. Groznin made his cocktail of Andorr-Loatac Ale and shared it with the rest of the small party of Officers. Groznin also ate a lot of food. Including a Vulcan bread & a form of meat he had never tasted before. During this party he was awarded the Lifesaving Ribbon for helping save the life of the Kian Symbiont and the Prisoner of War Ribbon for being held hostage by Lladre. He and Nova shared their first kiss at the party.

During his time on the Njörðr, Groznin had a tour of the ship along with his friend Tasha MacFarlane & Commander Trellis Vondaryan & Assistant Chief of Security & Tactical Samira Neathler, While in a Jefferies Tube, due to unknown reasons the ships gravity flipped, sending them too the ceiling of the Tube. they crawled their way through till main engineering where they thankfully managed to shut down the warp core before it overloaded. After these events they made their way to the battle bridge in which they got a message out to the entire ship using various items found around the bridge. The message they sent was quickly edited by Rear AdmiralQuinn Reynolds which let the team know that there was other survivors amongst the ship, which up too that point had seemed unlikely. Shortly after the battle bridge The team was caught off guard by two aggressors who ultimately kidnapped the Gorkon's Assistant Chief of Security. It was at this point the team was discovered by a Bajoran women, who needed help finding her husband.

Sadly when they found the man he was dead, much to his wife's disbelief. Shortly after this the team while in a Jefferies tube, heard some noises, thinking it was the aggressors, after being handed a phaser from Tasha, Groznin took a premature shot, hitting a friendly instead of who he thought it was. It turned out to be Lieutenant Junior Grade Orson "Bear" Marshall & Ensign Gnaxac. Groznin felt terrible, and didn't know what to do. He kept apologizing. When leaving the Junction they were in, the large team split up into two smaller teams of; Tasha & Trellis, and Orson, Groznin & Gnaxac. The Bajoran women while still with them, left the group to head for the safety of Deck D, where they had been instructed to go in the Admirals message. Orson, told Groznin & Gnaxac they were going to find Samira, Groznin was told in a stern voice that he wasn't to touch a phaser at all. He agreed.

They found Samira and successfully saved her, before getting to a control room in which they found a Vulcan, who was alive, but barely, Groznin was helping him using the medical training he had got from his extra courses at the academy, when the young Vulcan grabbed a hypospray and threw it into the air, which hit a console, which in turn caused the Gravity system to be flipped again. They all braced themselves, and shortly after making sure everyone alive was okay, they started to head back into the service shaft when they were beamed too the safety of the USS Yarhala.

Shore Leave following The Njörðr Incident - New Horizons Conference

The shore leave following the incident on the USS Njörðr was an especially tough one for Groznin to deal with. To start with he had to have a meeting with the Admiral about the incident which involved him shooting Orson "Bear" Marshall He was told he would have to go through a re assessment of how to handle phasers and that due to previous happenings he was n his final warning, if he was to use his phaser incorrectly again it would cause him to be transferred of the Gorkon, which is something he wouldn't want to happen.

He went to Bear about this and he was taken on a Jungle training course which saw them encounter a Borg, which Groznin quickly took down with his phaser rifle and a piece of wood which he used to finish the Borg off. After the Jungle training he was taken into another holodeck programme which was too teach him how to aim better. Once this was finished he went to Sto'Vo'Kor for a drink and met Ensign Carmen Tis They listened to some old earth music and enjoyed a good conversation before they both departed for their own personal business.

Also during this shore leave Groznin was contacted by his parents, who also happened to be at the New Horizons Conference. The talked via a link between their two quarters on the ships and even met up for a meal with each other. It made Groznin happy that he was starting to re claim a little connection with them, he even found out about his younger sibling, Velax.

Sadly, the shore leave didn't go as well as he hoped. He had his first argument with Nova over Jang and the way he was behaving, Nova thought it best to leave him to calm down for a little, but Groznin thought it best to punish him. Things got more heated and a shouting match broke out which in turn led Jang after a discussion with Droc & Decri, he decided to go back to Earth for a little bit, to live with them and discover who he was . Things took a turn for the better, Groznin and Jang made up and he left happy under the supervision of Lieutenant Brockley for the 3 & a half month trip to earth.

Groznin was then met by his girlfriend Nova O'Rien in the shuttle bay and they departed back to her shared quarters to have a drink. When their while having a kiss, Nova's roommate Jhyrazhao sh'Kavhilji Which turned into a long and funny conversation about bi-gendered relationships which cheered Groznin up a lot.

He also found out about another Denobulan hybrid aboard the ship Ethrixa zh'Khallnoq who he would very much like to meet.

Operation Sea Devil

During the undercover mission to Nassau, Groznin had to take the role of first officer due to humans being discriminated against, meaning Commander Marshall not being able to fulfil her us role, while he was 3/4 Human his unique Gene structure gives him the appearance of being almost fully Denobulan leading people to believe that he is indeed just Denobulan

The mission him and the rest of the people on his team (Commander Jo Marshall, fellow lieutenant JG Corliss Fortune & the new Ensign Caitríona Cayne) has been given was to extract Undercover Starfleet Officer Blackbird. They had only limited details on who the man was so it was a challenge.

The mission led them to also meet a Orion female who went by the name Theeda, she was nasty and made the team do things for her, in exchange for a specific item she had wanted to collect. After a while of debating they left Theeda and her thugs and headed towards the commercial district of Nassau. It was here that they headed into a bar too try and find the item that Theeda was after. The team split in two with Groznin staying with Commander Marshall. After a series of events occurred A bar fight started, which further led to Groznin being thrown into a table, becoming injured, it also led to a large link haired Naussican making a charge for Commander Marshall, not wanting her to be injured further after being stabbed earlier on Groznin pushed her out the was and took the charge full on being pushed into the bar, becoming winded which unbeknownst to him also gave him internal bleeding. The Naussican as distracted and seeing a bottle next to him he smashed it round the head of the Naussican and knocked him out. It was at this point the team decided it would be best to leave this part of Nassau and head towards the habituation district to try and carry on with the rest of their mission.

They later on had arrived in the habitation district and started to try and somehow find their way to whoever this person they were trying to extract was. After a little bit of moving around in the slims and exploring what they could they came across a set of houses that were said to be where the mysterious Blackbird lived. Without knowing anything and being the only security officer in the team Groznin took it upon himself to go and knock at one of the doors to see if that was the ‘house’ he lived at, it wasn’t and a large Naussican in chequered pyjamas answered, and angrily told them they were at the wrong house.

After a small amount of time Blackbird appeared, before an Orion from earlier showed up wanting something they had. They refused to give it too her. Groznin was at this point in a lot of pain and things often left his memory. The next thing he remembered he was being dragged to a motorbike and heading to the port to try and escape, they headed quickly through the slims and seeing things that were very uncertain.

When they reached the port there was another familiar Orion waiting to meet them. Theeda with her grunts wanting what they had said they were going to get her. They argued for quite sometime before one of her grunts dragged their pilot of the shuttle craft. Groznin still in a lot of pain, eventually got the courage to get over his fear of using his phaser and shot Theeda, bluffing about the setting the phaser was on. When Theeda and her goons had been taken care of, Groznin boarded their shuttle with the rest of the away team, along with Blackbird, and a retrained Theeda and started to leave Nassau.

After a dealing with port authority, they were allowed to leave and started to head back towards Captain Brunsig and his Defiant Class Triumphant, Commander Marshall and his own conditions worsened, with Commander Marshall being transported directly to sickbay when they entered within transporter range along with Ensign Cayne. Groznin waited along with the rest of the away team, They eventually transported onto the Triumphant and the shuttle craft was destroyed. With his injuries he ordered for Theeda to be taken to the brig and then himself left for sick bay. Collapsing on the floor as he walked into the room. For him this was the end of the mission. And he spent the first part of his shore leave in sickbay till they reached the Gorkon.

shore leave after

During the shore leave after the mission to Nassau Groznin didn’t do an awful lot. The main section of his shore leave was his small holiday to visit his Great Grandparents on earth after a small bout of depression having sent Jang to earth to be with his Great Grandparents. Once he arrived at their new house, just outside London. He was to find out through them of his son (Jang) had defected to the Klingon Empire half way through the journey to Earth. He was heartbroken and now was struggling more knowing his son, even though only adopted, was aboard a Klingon ship, for the first time in a number of years, with no one he knew. During his trip to visit his Grandparents he took a trip to mars with them to a Cardassian Café. The only other major event was the Wedding of Admiral Reynolds, and Papa Bear, more commonly known as Captain Brunsig. It was a very nice reception, and he took Nova as a plus one, they spent most of their time apart though, as Groznin spoke to her, on her asking, about Jang, she suggested he speak with Intelligence to see if there’s anything they can do. Shortly after this and a brief discussion with the Gorkons resident Pakwha-than – Xanti – Groznin and Nova left for bed due to them both being tired.

Since the Astraeus

After Operation Sea Devil Groznin was transferred to the USS Astraeus. While on the Astreaus he rekindled an old friendship with Sheila Bailey. This was short lived though. After just one mission with the ship which involved a first contact, The Astraeus was decommissioned and Groznin along with Nova were transferred off the ship together.

During transit to their new posting they encountered a subspace rift which pulled Groznin into it pulling him across the Galaxy onto the USS Veritas. Being pulled onto another ship instead of being sent to his original transfer Groznin was transferred to the Veritas with Nova following him later on. In this mission he was awarded the Peacekeeper Service Ribbon and the First Contact Ribbon

After being on the Veritas for a little bit and without Nova, Groznin took a LOA to try and regain his thoughts and get himself back on track after the trauma of being pulled through a subspace rift. Eventually Nova was able to return and after a few months Groznin returned from his LOA and took active duty on the Veritas.

Things soon deteriorated though. Things didn’t get much better for Groznin and he had to take an extended leave of absence from Starfleet. Nova got a position on Earth at the Daystrom Institute so Groznin went with her as she continued her work.

On their way back to Earth, Groznin proposed to Nova. While on his LOA Groznin plans fo visit friends where he can and take some time to explore his hobbies and interests in his own time.


  • Promotion to Lieutenant JG - Groznin was promoted to Lieutenant Junior Grade after a mission to the planet Romulan Republic world of Sikuna in which a hidden Valor class Warbird was discovered. The Promotion came as a shock too him as he’d only recently been posted too the Gorkon shortly before the promotion.

Awards Special Xalor 2011.jpg
Xalor Clan Xifilis Award 239506.29
USS Gorkon
"One of Discord's regulars, Groznin Smith is filled with enthusiasm and friendliness, clearly taking immense joy in being a part of our community. What's remarkable is that he maintains that spirit of fun and good humour despite the numerous trips he has to make for medical appointments, most recently involving significant surgery to his leg. He's open and candid about his disability -- sharing the details and a few pictures of his medical journey -- and really quite humbling in the way he honestly discusses the difficulties he's experienced. For these reasons, like his nominators I believe he is more than deserving of the Xalor Clan Xifilis Award, and I'm proud to present it to him."

Genesis Award 239606.24
USS Gorkon
”Over the course of his time with SB118, Zech has developed from a simmer that required advanced help and feedback in how to compose his sims and write within the group setting, to someone who has shown incredible growth to contribute solid ideas to the plot, explore Groznin as a character as well as his dynamic with others, and improved his simming skills with the motivation and dedication of someone who wants to strengthen themselves. His abilities have increased tenfold with the continued devotion and practice Groznin has put in. The effort that he's expended to make himself a better, more creative, and more efficient writer cannot be understated, and every sim from him has something special in it that makes it truly his.”

USS Gorkon
”During my tenure as the Publicity Facilitator I have had the opportunity to work with some fantastic individuals in spreading the word about our community. For the past year there has been one person whose passion for this community shines in everything they do. Few others approach recruitment with such gusto as Groznin Smith. Groznin has shared details of our group far and wide, and I know more than a few members that he has directly recruited from some far flung corner of the internet. That alone is a fantastic achievement - but Groznin does not stop there! He is also a very active member of Discord - often being one of the first to greet new members with a warm friendly welcome. Thank you for everything you do, and congratulations Zech!”
