RHO WEEKLY SQUADRON REPORT #57

REPORTING OFFICER: Commander Adom “fr0Zen” Wietu, Squadron Commander
DATE SUBMITTED: 06.29.2021

SQUADRON COMMANDER'S CORNER

(Doctors. Never trusted them since .. well.. I don't really want to talk about that. I guess the Squadron would understand but that whole part of my history would open too many questions for the brass. Doesn't matter anyway really. I was fine yesterday but no, doctor said "restricted duty with no terminal access."  Good thing they haven't connected me to that busted unit in the auxiliary hangar.)

He begins composing this week's message on the terminal.

My comrades and compatriots. 

Another fine week for Rho Squadron.  Of course we maintain excellence in the basics - uniform adherence, precision patrol exercises, craft maintenance.  I celebrate our advances of late in utilizing the simulation tools available to us - older ones such as the XvT and TF designations, and particularly of late the time going towards wins in the so-called SWS simulator. But this week - we have something wholly different to announce: The Imperial Storm III competition is now live!

Set up as a "war-games" type event, we expect to destroy the opposition and to have a thoroughly enjoyable time doing so. Please advise yourself as soon as possible of the full ruleset for this event, which you can find linked directly here.

Additionally, I need to point out that we are looking for the votes from all squadron members for a choice of flight suit and ship detailing style.  This includes our squadron mates who do not prefer the SWS simulator - we want your votes as well.

There are few opportunities for group consensus allowed in our rigorous military structure, so I hope we all take a moment to enjoy the privilege by opening your Discord communication tool and navigating to these selection comments to place your vote:

Select a choice of flight suit here.
Select a choice of ship detailing style here.

You will find the images to inform your decision immediately above the two voting references linked here in this report.  A special salute goes to LT Westric Davalorn for taking the initiative of filtering the multitudinous combinations down to choices appropriate to our history and squadron theme.

Until a new Emperor is seated and the Rebellion is forever crushed!

So What Else this Week?

I want to highlight LT FamePlane for representing our unit on the elite levels of SWS - and particularly for doing so as part of a charity event this previous weekend.  View the holo-footage here at one's convenience. The SWS portion of the event begins at roughly the 17:30:00 mark.

Donations are still open towards the event's goal, with the donation page available here.

LT FamePlane kept up the busy weekend of service by also providing staff coverage for the fledgling StarCross Dogfight League - which has been a noble project for a new gaming organization that I have also enjoyed helping to staff.  The event even motivated me to try my hands at twitch casting for the first time ever.

This commander thinks it's definitely exciting when hobbies give back - through charity and through building broader communities, especially during what has been such a lonely time for so many people.

(And yes, this section is for the "out of character" notes as opposed to the "in character" ones at the top. Or immediately following this segment. Wink.)

CLOSING COMMENTS

If you do not have access to any of the more storied and long lived combat simulators - TF, XvT, etc - please let me know so that I can facilitate your readiness for the Imperial Storm III war games.  There might just be a "gift" available from the Ghost of Lord Vader for me to pass your way if you do not already have access to the required programs.
