Firebird PatchFROM STRYKER'S DESKFirebird Patch
Shaking his head with annoyance, Stryker exited the historical simulation he'd been attempting and hauled himself out of the simulator. Back in the day, the historical missions had been of prime importance to the TIE Corps as a training tool - if you could improve against the AI, you'd improve against other pilots. These days, however, the historical missions were largely forgotten except by die-hard veterans; it didn't help that the newer Operating Systems the Challenge utilised was largely incompatible with the system, which meant the simulators would either fail mid-mission, or the simulations themselves would go haywire.

Worse still, was the competency of the AI. Had a real squadron shown as poor accuracy as the Gunboats Stryker had just been escorting, they'd have been sent back to Daedalus for gunnery training. Still, issues or not, it was good to get any flying in - with Life Day approaching and the Challenge entering an emptier area of space, a lot of the pilots and crew were utilising the HoloComm for transmissions to families spread across the galaxy. Stryker didn't begrudge them that, but he hoped that should they be needed, the pilots were focused on their duties rather than feasts and presents.

That said, it had been a long time since he'd had a good Life Day feast, and the staff of the Challenge's Officer's Mess had promised something extra special this year...

Well, it's a week until Christmas and I haven't finished my shopping, so I may be in a little trouble!

We've seen a general rise in activity among most pilots this last week, which is good; I was starting to get worried for a moment!

General Elwood the Brave has created a fabric patch for Firebird members and interested parties from elsewhere, DM me on Discord or E-Mail me if you would like one. I also have stickers available should there be demand for those as well!

Medal and Promotion recommendations have been made, they should be actioned by the Powers That Be before too long!

Firebird PatchCLOSING COMMENTSFirebird Patch
A better week than last week, to be sure! With Christmas at the end of the week I'm not expecting marathon flying sessions from anyone, but remember why we're here. Also, I hope people remember to be safe during the holiday season; I don't want anyone taking risks and getting sick if it can be helped!
