SUBJECT: Hammer Ship Report

Red LogoPROLOGUE

The shuttle bucked suddenly, causing the relatively young lieutenant at the helm to grab the controls with concern before righting itself and carrying on its trajectory towards the distant vessel.

Phoenix glanced up from the data pad he was studying, that was the third time on this trip alone that the those strange vibrations had surfaced. The Hammers Edge was well maintained but he was going to have to have a quiet word with the maintenance chief when they finally got back to the Hammer. The trip to the Sovereign for Zekk's instalment as Rear Admiral was a welcome return to the vessel where his TIE Corps career had begun but the report that had been filed into his inbox during the return trip was concerning.

A whole flight of TIE Fighters damaged by a high speed projectile weapon, pure fluke of course that the object had got them at right angles to their flight and careened through all four of them.

"Update from the Science Office Admiral" came the dulcet tones of LT Task.

Phoenix acknowledged the comment and returned his concentration to the datapad, which did not last long.

Suppressing a smile he rose from his seat and leant across the low divider that separated his booth from the cabin behind it where the commanders of all 4 of the Hammers squadrons were seated, all 4 having found a reason to join the trip to the Hammers flagship.

"Gents, you recall the incident that happened earlier today? We have the initial analysis from the science office".

All four pilots wore inquisitive expressions as they crowded around the datapadd that Phoenix had passed to Genie.

"A Diaper?!" Exclaimed Doyon.

"A frozen one Colonel, I wonder where it came from?" Said Decol.

"Science office will extrapolate a likely trajectory, but in the mean time we need to discuss some future operations. Alejandro would you inform the cockpit to get us back the Hammer ASAP."

Red LogoUPDATES

Greetings pilots of the Hammer!

Welcome to this weeks Hammer Ship Report, the initial one of 2021.

I trust everyone has had a decent start to the new year, despite the world around us doing it's level best to make things challenging. Life here in London for your Commodore is a life of lockdown, kids and virtual work, which makes the TIE Corps and it's virtual environment an even more enticing escape from the world outside!

This report has been revised several times in the last 48 hours due to the slow influx of MSE medals from December, some of which you can see listed out below. More of these rewards for your activity during December will be arriving in due course, so if they are not listed here they will be captured in my next report so please do not worry!

The TC Admiralty have also reviewed and revised the way in which we run competitions, and the knock on effect is that I will be altering how we run the Trivia for the Hammered. Specifically, it will become a seasonal event consisting of multiple seasons per year each lasting 8-10 weeks (2-3 months). The idea here is that each run will see awards and maybe be thematic so it should mean you have more chances to pick up shiney medals!

We are also going to be launching a competition around creating/fleshing our fictional Hammer crew - so keep your eyes peeled for this one as I want to launch this weekend.

Finally - congratulations to everyone who picked up a medal - doing the MSE was a pleasure and I am glad to see the activity levels on the ship. I also want to extend a warm welcome to our 2 new arrivals Sub Lieutenants Hollywood and Solohan50 who joined Epsilon and Lambda respectively.

Red LogoCOMPETITIONS

Trivia for the Hammered
Trivia for the Hammered: As mentioned above, after a series of discussions the number of competitons and the way in which we run them is being altered. As such I am revamping the trivia as a seasonal affair, such that we will have multiple runs per year lasting 2-3 months each. Each run will contain its own rewards so it's win win for everyone involved and we will be kicking off the initial run of this rebranded Trivia for the Hammered shortly.

All other competitions can be found here
