SUBJECT: Hammer Ship Report


Greetings pilots of the Hammer!

I hope everyone has had a good week, wherever in the world you may be located. Here in London it's been a good week and we actually saw snow which as per usual has seen the city grind to a even further halt.

The final MSE medals from last month have dropped, so well done to everyone who picked up a shiny new medal! We've also had a trio of promotions with Sub-Lieutenants Braz Ile and SoloHan50 getting their promotions to Lieutenant and Lieutenant Commander Wildfire securing the rank of Commander. Well done to the three of you!

The observant of you will have also noticed that there is a new banner at the top of this report. Thanks goes to Commander Witcher who put together a fantastic new Hammer header!

Finally let me draw your attention to our new competition; the Hammer Crew Cruise. This competition is really about fleshing out the fictional crew of the Hammer, be it member of the bridge crew, member of the janitorial team, the hangar bay crew, kitchen staff, the medics, you name it. Submissions should be at least 500 words long and can be sent in via email as either text or as an attachment. Don't worry about other people submitting characters that would occupy the same position, I will judge them on the basis of realism and entertainment value.

Trivia for the Hammered
Welcome to Season One of Trivia for the Hammered, a weekly trivia event that takes the form of several 8-12 week long seasons with breaks between them. On top of our usual weekly winner there will be a seasonal crown to claim as well, with career points carrying over from each season.
I will send out 4 questions during the week via BCC. First correct pilot to answer me gains 3 points, second 2 points and all other correct answers gain you a point.
We tally up at the end of the week with the winner receiving a IS-BR.
The seasonal top-gun receives a IS-SR and there are also career IS-BR's at 50, 100, 350 points on offer.

This weeks round featured questions about the TIE Advanced series of starfighters and was largely sourced from Wookipedia. The result was closely fought between CM Witcher and our eventual winner, GN Coranel Both. Well done!

Q1: The TIE Advanced name covered a series of Starfighters built by SFS; which model featured solar arrays where only the inside edge carried solar panels?
A1: TIE Advanced v1, or TIE/ad v1

Q2: Who tested the TIE Advanced x1 at the Battle of Yavin?
A2: Lord Vader

Q3: The TIE/Ad x7 (TIE Advanced x7) was a prototype for what other Imperial Starfighter? (LEGENDS)
A3: TIE Defender

Q4: The TIE/ad (also known as the TIE Avenger) was referred to with what nicnkname in Rebel piloting slang?

Hammer Crew Cruise
The Hammer is more than just it's pilots, we have a Star Destroyer to flesh out. Over the next 2 weeks you can come up with characters for our mighty ship, be it the chief navigator, the cook, the engineers, the janitor... you name it.
Submissions need to be at least 500 words long, and will be scored by the Commodore. The best submission will receive a IS-SR, second place receiving a IS-BR.
Note: If two pilots submit characters for the same position, we can modify them slightly after the competition.
