Changeling Posing As Admiral James T Kirk
The Gamma Quadrant, International
Submitted by Admiral_Kirk on July 6, 2013 at 5:48 PM.
For a while, I've been working on improving my rating. I got passed 1300 rather quickly, but was stuck in the 1390s. Then, today, on 6 July 2013, I found out my rating had reached 1400 in a great way.

Admin positions at chess.com
My pride and joy is my group, Star Trek: The Dominion. I used to manage many more groups, but I now only manage groups related to the Domininion, with the exceptions being Admin Training Camp and Carlsen Fan Club. The former I am temporarily the head of while the SA is on hiatus. The latter I picked up from inactivity. Here's a list of all the the groups I admin at. I decided not to include league groups or admin groups.
Star Trek: The Dominion ("My" Group - Started by me)
The Breen Confederacy (Note: Dominion Subgroup. While I am super admin, the group is run by mpearce01, and he is in charge)
The Death Star III (Note: Dominion Subgroup. While I am super admin, the group is run by free member BigFatDaddy55, and he is in charge)
Carlsen Fan Club
Admin Training Camp
The Cardassian Empire (Note: Dominion Subgroup. The group is run by free member franksmith, and he is in charge)
If I had the time, I would love to create a group of U.S. history lovers, but I unfortunately do not have the time.
Obviously, I like chess. I also play Stratego, Othello, and many other games. For the most part, I hate sports, though I do follow the Bengals American football team. As you can tell from the groups I participate in, I am a huge Star Trek fan. I have the inflatable captain's chair, Kirk uniform, Star Trek wall panel, and all seasons of TOS, TNG, and DS9. My favorite series is Deep Space Nine, and my favorite episode is Waltz. Of the Star Trek movies, my favorite is Star Trek: Generations. I can't stand Voyager, and haven't the time to watch Enterprise.
