ISD WARRIOR WEEKLY REPORT #17

REPORTING OFFICER: Rear Admiral Zekk Terrik
DATE SUBMITTED: May 3 2021

FROM THE DESK OF THE COMMODORE

Hello everyone! It looks like we are all caught up on some missed medals and stuff like that - they're sitting in the queue and ready to go. We will ALL be less negligent in the future, under penalty of airlock.

A new Commodore's Address came out yesterday which is a bit more detailed (and for the eyes of Wing II pilots only...I'm pretty sure Wing X has Rebel spies), but I do want to touch on a couple fast points. With April's MSE is done and looked at by me, Kappa is by far the most improved squadron since I took over. You guys are really kicking ass, keep it up! Lastly, congratulations to LCM SkyShadow of Sin on being awarded the Grand Order of the Emperor for his work on TTT3!

It isn't ready yet, but next week I plan to start including puzzles in every ISD Warrior report, courtesy of LT WarperJawa of Sin who designed them. Thank you for that!

International Star Wars Day is coming up tomorrow, and I believe an awesome giveaway for our games has been put together by CPT Witcher and COL Silwar of...oh who cares, they're not on the Warrior. You can sign up for that giveaway here!

    SHIP COMPETITIONS

  • Who, Are You?

    Great questions! This is a fiction competition to explore your pilot. Where is your pilot from? What experiences have molded them into who they are? What brought them to the TIE Corps? Why do they keep flying for us?

    The purpose of this comp is to write fiction that explores some of this stuff beyond just the basics of the INPR. This can be a timeline, a short story, a bio, a wiki page, etc.

    Turn fiction into CPT Sparky. Must be 250 words to qualify. Winner will be rewarded to the most original entry.

    Don't worry about grammar and punctuation - the purpose isn't to quiz your written english. Just have fun!
