(The communication logs from the previous week scroll across the Rho Squadron Commander's terminal - a sea of silver tinged blue text washing by as waves of record keeping best practices, uniform maintenance, ship configurations, flight tactics, and a healthy volume of interpersonal exchanges.
The Pantoran, CPT Adom "fr0Zen" Wietu, smiles warmly at no one and nothing but his screen. "A solid week of growth, indeed," he comments idly to his droid.
Nix, the R2D7 unit mockingly named in likeness to the effusive flight deck engineer Mix, beeps and swoops approvingly. Certainly the droid can comprehend Imperial Font #227?
The Commander moves next to the activity reports - navigating from folder and file, validation form to patrol summary. The smile lingers as he adds once more, "And all flight activity is up dramatically as well. Yes. This is some real momentum."
The droid tilts forward for a better look at the details.)
The Commander begins composing this week's message on the terminal.
Greetings, as per ever, my Comrades in Black.
Our efforts in this year's Raise the Flag exercises are off to an impressive start. As of the writing of this report, we are sitting comfortably in 7th place out of 15 squadrons in the active duty Tie Corps - so far having amassed 764 points towards the glory of the ISDII Warrior!
As one may note from the activity log later in this report, this burst of activity has increased flight ratings across several of our pilots - and will serve doubly at the end of October towards an impressive haul of monthly merit medals.
That current spot in the squad rankings represents a success beyond what I would have asked before the competition. Now seeing the bar that we have set for ourselves, I can state that I hope we can all continue to contribute a steady stream of participation. Maintaining the current pace will keep us in that spot and ensure Rho Squadron is seen as one of the top tier squadrons in this organization - quite willfully and defiantly against the odds.
I should say that all those points are so far not including upcoming submissions to the Imperial Library and Records that we expect to be provided by LT ossusplayz and LT Cray Xerious.
The total is even more impressive considering that there are more than one of our pilots on leave currently, and that we have one open spot still available in our roster.
Truly, this Commander is impressed and ready to press on through the end of this event! I look forward to providing next week's update on our successes.
Until a new Emperor is seated and the Rebellion is forever crushed!
