Phoenix killed the thrusters as the TIE Phantom coasted gently into the Challenge's hangar bay, he was pleased to see Lieutenant Crawl in Thunder 1-2 effortlessly following behind and slightly to his starboard. Kicking in the repulsors he bruought the Phantom to a halt above Thunders designated area of the bay and let the craft gently settle onto a cradle made to hold the fighters bulk.
It had been a long patrol of some of the nearby systems as the First Recon Division that the Challenge was part of made its way slowly through the maze that was the Minos Cluster. The Phantom was perfectly suited to long patrols Phoenix mused and he had no doubt that more awaited the squadron before the month was out.
He togged on his comm, "Thunder Lead to all craft, power down and report to the briefing room in thirty minutes for debriefing. I'm sure the Admiral is keen to know the results of our patrol." With that he flicked a couple of switches on the console and heard the characteristic whine as the fighter powered down....
Greetings Thunder Squadron and welcome to this weeks report.
Another week has trundled by and we're continuing to see a number of legions and medals dropping through the squadron, so fantastic work to all of you who have participated in one way or another. Lieutenants Angel, Dynamus and Kongo are continuing to rack up Legions of Combat from their playing of Star Wars: Squadrons and we've seen a few other awards arrive in the form of Iron Stars and a Bronze Star. Long may this continue!
A reminder that as we approach the end of the month I'll begin putting together the MSE (Monthly Squadron Evaluation) from which promotions & awards will be recommended, so if you have any last minute bouts of flying or writing or drawing please let me know!
