ISD WARRIOR WEEKLY REPORT #21

REPORTING OFFICER: Rear Admiral Zekk Terrik
DATE SUBMITTED: May 31 2021

FROM THE DESK OF THE COMMODORE

Hello there Warriors! It was a bit of a quiet week for us again but with a definite uptick in activity. I want to thank everyone that sent in RotJ submissions. Not quite the turnout I was expecting especially considering some of them can be easy, so hopefully I see some new ones this week. I have attached Week 4's, and like always you have until next Sunday at midnight to submit. Check out the bonus question down below!

Today is the final day to submit for CPT Sparky's Who, Are You? biographical competition. Don't forget! Details are below.

Just a reminder that I will likely not be available for a large part of Imperial Storm, and the beautiful and talented MAJ Robert Hogan of Sin Squadron is going to be team captain. I will be visiting family in Texas and gone from mid-June until end of June.

On a personal note, it's Memorial Day in the United States. I know there are many active duty military and veterans in the TIE Corps. Let's all take a moment to remember those friends we lost while serving, and those who lost their battles after they came home. I hope you all have a peaceful day.

WARRIOR ROSTER
  • The roster currently stands at 42 members as we continue to trim the fat and add some asskicking. Welcome SL ossusplayz to the Warrior and Rho Squadron! We bade farewell to LT WarperJawa of Sin Squadron on his way to the Reserves, and likely the end of the RotJ competition once I run out of puzzles in a month or so unless I come up with something different.
  • FLEET NEWS
    • Make sure you catch episode 10 of The TIE Pilot Podcast at this link, where GN Doyon and I surprise the Discord with a special popup episode! Lasting more than an hour, it was very successful!
    • We are soliciting ideas for episode 11.
    • Led by COL Mordechi Wolfe of Sin Squadron, we have progressed to Phase II of Project Sovereign. MAJ Genie and COL Silwar have taken the lead in designing the Imperial Armory.
    • TIE Corps in Battle, May assignments are out, see below!
    • Squadron Remob competition has concluded and medals are on their way out!
    • The Vegas Golden Knights really suck.
    SHIP NEWS
    • I have had a couple of people reach out to me about being long-term interested in a CMDR spot. I want to encourage anyone who's interested, even if you've been a CMDR before, to reach out to me so we can begin the process.
    • CPT Sparky's Who, Are You? competition ends tomorrow, let's get those submissions in!
    • MAJ Robert Hogan will serve as team captain for Imperial Storm.
    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!

  • Riddles of the Jawa

    Like every Jawa, LT WarperJawa of Sin speaks in riddles and virtually impossible to understand Galactic Basic. As a translation tool, he has provided the Commodore with a series of riddles and puzzles to be included in every ISD Warrior report.

    Unfortunately, the Commodore is far, far too dumb to figure them out and needs the help of the pilots of Wing II to sort them out.

    ---

    Every week, RA Zekk will include a new puzzle designed by LT WarperJawa in the Warrior report. The first pilot of Wing II to return a fully correct puzzle to me will receive 5 points, the second will receive 4 points, and the third will receive 3 points. Every entry after that will receive 1 point. You will also receive 1 point for answering the weekly bonus question correctly, and an IS-CR for every 4 entries regardless of where you placed. These will be determined by the timestamp on the email you send.

    You may also spend one point and receive a hint! You may do this as many times as you want, but you will always receive a minimum of 1 point no matter how many points you spend.

    Naturally, I will not be participating since I have the answers.

    Current Standings for RotJ

    GN Pickled Yoda - 7

    LCM Kazraran - 7

    CPT Aardvark - 7

    LCM Rachel Drakon - 6

    CM SkyShadow - 2 (CM SkyShadow went over the threshold for an IS-GR, and his score has been reset down to 2 after earning his medal! Great work!)

    This week's bonus question: When was Abeloth born and where was her famous prison?

  • FLEET COMPETITIONS

    Here’s some fleet-wide competitions currently going on:

  • May COO Objective Scramble: May The Force Be With YOu

  • Pilots, There will be a rotating COO Objective each month for a chosen platform and goal. This month is based upon flying together.

    Objective:

The pair that has the most victories at the end of this month will win the IS-GW, second place the IS-SW and third place the IS-BW.

    To encourage further participation, each winning pilot per month will be given a rating of 3 points at maximum, scalable to 2 or 1 if less than 3 pilots participate a month. The top three pilots at the end of the year will attain the annual awards.
