Biography In 2007, Sterling had been working on penning some science fiction stories. His best friend, Justin Grays, was doing the same when Grays told Sterling about the Honor Harrington series and how much he loved David Weber’s writing style and the depth of the Honorverse. Sterling agreed to give On Basilisk Station a try to see how he liked it, and was quickly drawn into the universe of Honor Harrington. During the early fall of 2011, Sterling had been told about the Royal Manticoran Navy and the Minneapolis chapter, HMS Merlin. Sterling being quite busy, was unable to take the time to join immediately. However, quickly he discovered what was involved with being a spacer on HMS Merlin and signed up on 2 October 2011. After finding the experience enjoyable and wanting to help form a new chapter for Minnesota, Sterling worked with Grays and Jill McTavish to form the new chapter. He was promoted to Electronic Warfare Technician First Class as he and the tactical team continued to recruit new members. On 20 November 2011, Sterling was promoted to Chief Petty Officer and was made Bosun of HMS Samurai After the launch of HMS Invincible and the transfer of Justin Grays from CO, HMS Samurai to CO, HMS Merlin, Sterling transferred to HMS Merlin to take over as the ship’s Bosun. After HMS Lodestone launched, Cole transferred there to take over as ship’s Bosun
