On January 1, 2011
Samistsu Bashere (USS Cort├ęs)
received the:

Character Development Award

Character Development Award

with the following reason:

It should come as little surprise to many, that the next commendation to be awarded is that of the Character Development Award. This is a [u]Level 1[/b] award through the Pegasus Fleet Award System that is awarded to the player(s) who develop their character throughout the simulations current and previous mission, while also throughout the fleet. And to Lieutenant Samitsu Bashere whose troubled past has shaped and molded her future as a Starfleet Officer. Her only saving grace is the unwavering love of her Mother whose good relations with the upper echelon of Starfleet Command has favored the Caitain/Kzinti halfbreed. Now cashing in on the last chance she'll ever be given, this pretty Kitty strives to better herself by maintaining calm and peace and keeping a deep-broiled anger in check, a task most difficult to say the least.

Since receiving this award, Samistsu Bashere transferred to Deleted Characters.
