On January 1, 2011
Sovak (USS Viper)
received the:

Crew's Choice Award

Crew's Choice Award

with the following reason:

Nominated by Lieutenant Chase and Ensign Fuller Lieutenant Sovak did not come to us as the executive officer originally however when the need for one came, he was there to step in and fill the role that the crew desperately needed. It is difficult to find someone that a commanding officer can count on and the bonus that if this XO falls out of line, he's not far for an in person reprimand from his CO!

Since receiving this award, Sovak transferred to Deleted Characters.
