To Boldly Go…In Honor of Those Who Led the Way!
Since the beginning, Star Trek has embraced the statement, “To Boldly Go where no Man/One has gone before”.
The Umiak’s Original Statement was,” To Boldly Go…And get back before anyone notices”
This statement wasn’t really a mission statement, BUT, the NEW statement speaks to the goal I set forth as soon as I took command. The history of the Umiak was built on the shoulders of people who gave sometimes, more than what they had. There was little to no question as to where our loyalty lay. We stood not only for the Umiak, but for each other.
The new statement defines our mission as To Go in Their Honor. We will conduct ourselves in a manner that will honor the goals and values originally set forth. We will show honor to the Umiak,bto those who lived for her, who sweated and bled for her… and to those who died while in her service….
In Service to the Umiak and her crew
