(20-Jun-29 ABY)

REPORTING COMMANDER: Major Genie, Squadron Commander TO: Lambda Squadron, RA Phoenix Berkana Hammer's Commodore DATE SUBMITTED: 23rd June 29 ABY


Today's news, start with an announcement. Our new Hammer Security Datasystem has gone live. If you aboard the Hammer and your pilot entry is missing, reach out to Genie (on discord or via email). Our new system lists all our pilots as well as some history about our squads and more information on some of the crew comprising the ISD II Hammer.

Congratulations to Wookiee for reaching a new Combat Rating, Veteran 4th and Howler for racing to Marksman 3rd. Furthermore, Solohan worked his way up to Cavalier in the Honor Guard ranks. Meanwhile Howler and Solohan have climbed to the next Echelon step!

Some sad news, as LT Rigger has transferred to the reserves. Perhaps once he meets Smiley, he will choose to return back to active duty!

The TCiB battles for June are as follows:


Has Smiley joined the EH Ranks?

In case you don't know who Smiley is, read on. The M/FRG Phoenix used to have a resident cat. The entire crew called him Smiley, because he has this bright and vibrant smile, that just illuminated everybody's day. He roamed around every floor, including the cafeteria, the armoury, the hangar. His hair was everywhere, evidence of Smiley marking his territory.

In the morning, he'd greet the cleaners and help them swipe the floors by rubbing himself on their legs. And, in the toilets, he'd rush voer and drink some of the water before they'd have a chance to pour any detergents. He also loved music, in particular Brattney Spares. She's a singer from the Umbara System. She sings popular teenager songs and creates elaborate dance routines. Smiley would "sing" to her tunes almost the way a dog would!

At lunch time, Smiley was well aware everyone would be gathering typically at the cafeteria, so he'd guilt every other table into giving him at least something out of the daily trooper "spread". He was particularly fond of fish of course and... sausages. Don't know what it was about sausages, but he couldn't have enough of them.

Then, in the afternoon, he'd run alongside the troops as they were performing their drills. Running in-between their legs, sometimes they'd even trip in tehir attempts to avoid stepping on him. No-one though seemed to mind. When there were no drills he'd wonder to the Hangar, jumping inside fighters and shuttles. Trying to pry away the hidden compartment filled with booze, that a lot of pilots had in their cockpits.

By nightime, he'd join the night watch, on the lookout for mice and other culprits, who were occupying the vendilations. Always keeping that bright smile on his face. For a cat, he was very cheerful, albeit a bit mischevious. They'd always reward him with a bit of Yama beer. Everyone's favourite bootleg.

Then, one day, High Admiral Plif came to inspect the M/FRG Phoenix. Everyone was nervous, trying to hide away just about every dirt, uncleanliness or bootleg that didn't belong there. Enter Lieutenant Horr "Phaser" Endous, relatively new to the fleet and tasked by the veterans with the safeguarding of the alcohol during the inspection. He was guarding the booze near a storage room that was very rarely visited by anyone. After waiting there for so many hours, he got thirsty. So he thought to himself, to open up a bottle of Yama Beer. Took a six-pack case, took a bottle out, opened it and then proceeded to guzzle it all down.

He was at the halfway mark when he overheard General Trepid's voice. He panicced, tried to finish off his drink and quickly opened the closest airlock and chucked case of 5 remaining beers in there, closed the door and activated the airlock. As the General walked past him, he stood in attention and saluted. The General and the other officers barely registering his presence.

Little did he know that Smiley followed the beer through to the airlock. It is now said, that the spirit of Smiley still lives within the M/FRG Phoenix, always looking for some Yama beer. To this day, both pilots and troops alike, swear they can see a red and white cat, smiling at them from a distance.

Some pilots even claim to have seen him sneak up in their cockpits! It is rumoured that several reserve pilots sought to transfer back to active duty because of it. So petrified of seeing Smiley's ghost that they prefer active duty and the dangers of flying in combat than a bright, heart-warming smile from our resident ghost cat, Smiley.
