Sin Squadron Report #104: October 25th, 2020
Reporting Commander: Colonel Zekk Terrik
Squadron News & Commentary
Greetings from the desk of the Commander, everyone. Not a whole lot of squadron news, but as many of us are aware, this is the time of the year when activity really dips. No pretty serious news to report this week.
Gentlemen, soon I am going to submit a survey, and I would like all of you to fill it out, regarding how we can improve things and get a little blood flowing in Sin!
A couple competitions have been approved by the COO! I will report them here and they will also make regular appearances in my reports. First off, the Sin Citation Bonanza! When COL Stryker left to fly his filthy alphabet ships, he took a lot of our citations with him. So, for every month, I will choose a TIE, XvT, and XWA battle for us all to fly to earn some citations! I will try to pick battles that are easy for us to get citations in. Please read the FULL details of the competition here as it is a points system to get your awards! https://tc.emperorshammer.org/competitions.php?id=3196 Since it is late in the month, I will let this one stretch until December 1st. If we have a good turnout, I’ll throw some news one in the report! Due November 30th at 11:59 PM PST we have TIE TC 3, XvT TC 1, and XWA TC 3. Let’s get on it and start flying them! Even if you have already completed it you can still get points!
Next up is Happy Birthday, Dear Zekkie! That’s right, the most beloved CMDR in the TIE Corps (sorry Hav) is turning 35 on November 7th. You have until then (or the day of) to send me a present! Ideas include: 1) Write me a birthday note of adoration. 2) Design me a birthday card. 3) Make me a birthday cake (pictures of it will do just fine, then you can eat it!). 4) Set new battle high scores for TIE TC 117 or XvT TC 117 (partial credit if you get a little mission high score)! These are, of course, just suggestions! I will select for first, second, and third place the gifts of adoration that I feel honor me properly, and award you accordingly!
Sin Squadron is in the process of a finding a new banner. I will open this competition up to the ENTIRE TIE Corps. I also briefly considered redesigning our patch, but Hav got seriously booty tickled about it. LCM Robert Hogan has already made a submission, as well as LC Phalk and GN Phoenix.

Here are the following competitions that Sin is participating in, whether squadron-only or part of the whole TIE Corps. As always I encourage you to visit the Competition Center (https://tc.emperorshammer.org/competitions.php?id=current ) to brush up on what’s going on in the TC as a whole. Keep an eye out for the Command Staff’s reports as they contain important information and competitions.
Sin Squadron Trivia - https://tc.emperorshammer.org/competitions.php?id=3092 This will end every Sunday night. I have changed the rules slightly...beginning this week, you will be awarded an IS-SR for every FIFTH victory. Everyone’s victories are reset to zero.
Sin Squadron On Patrol - https://tc.emperorshammer.org/competitions.php?id=3091 The bi-weekly free mission where you can earn an IS-BW for the top score every two weeks!
The Adventures of Sin Squadron – Submit anything, and I mean quite literally anything (minimum half a page because John was mean about it), to your CMDR for inclusion in the squadron report and receive a brand new shiny IS-BR! Receive an IS-SR for every 5 submissions! Ask me how (just email it, dummy). Graphics are also acceptable, or really just any creativity!
Sin Top Gun - https://tc.emperorshammer.org/competitions.php?id=3121 Who is the finest (and most active?) pilot in all of Sin?
TIE Golf – https://tc.emperorshammer.org/competitions.php?id=3123 Do you suck at flying too? Finally, a mission I can compete in! That’s right – you will compete for the worst possible score!
