Eighth Fleet Appoints New Director of Research & Development
The Eighth "Horizon" Fleet Council is pleased to announce the appointment of Rear Admiral Lorian Tharos to succeed Vice Admiral Chris Manley as Director of Research & Development!

Rear Admiral Tharos bring a wealth of experience to this position having worked closely with Vice Admiral Manley as well as the Fleet Council in matters pertaining to Research & Development and fleet administration. He has previously served as Information Services Coordinator where he was primarily responsible for overseeing the Horizon Fleet Wiki Database as well as creating and maintaining wiki articles. Many of you may also recognize Rear Admiral Tharos as Vice Admiral Iluvar (former Task Force 22 Commanding Officer) and/or Vice Admiral Andrew Hawkins (former Judge Advocate-General).

It should be noted that Rear Admiral Tharos is currently on semi-Extended Leave of Absence through mid-August due to summer employment with very limited internet access. He has been able to get online one day per week to post on simulations and respond to emails so please keep this in mind when you contact him - his response time will be delayed.

Congratulations Rear Admiral Tharos!

R&D Site Now Live!
