  ISDII Hammer Commodore report #110 (11/10/2021)
This report was submitted by COM-SIMS/VA Phoenix Berkana/ISDII Hammer


TO: Pilots of the Hammer
FROM: Vice Admiral Phoenix Berkana
DATE: 2021-11-10
SUBJECT: Hammer Ship Report


Greetings pilots of the Hammer!

Raise the Flag 21 has come to an end and is slowly receding into the distance whilst a large number of our pilots get a well deserved break. We posted a phenomenal score as you can see below, having trailed the Challenge closely for several weeks. I want to thank everyone who took part as you made this a very entertaining month. I'd also like to thank and congratulate our competitors, the Challenge and Warrior teams were great rivals over the month and I'm sure we'll be looking forward to a rematch in a years time. For now though, the final standings are below.

1. Challenge - 37216
2. Hammer - 33473
3. Warrior - 15070

The overall standings can be found on the RtF website however special shouts go out to Lambda and Epsilon squadrons who finished in 2nd and 3rd place respectively, no mean feat given the excellent performances put up by other squadrons both aboard the Hammer and other ships. On the individual rankings we had 5 of our pilots finish in the top 10, with LC Genie finishing in a close second to the eventual winner COL Sturm.

LC Genie - 2nd
LT Wolve Excelsior Berkana - 3rd
CM Gyheran - 5th
CM Solohan50 - 6th
CM TheBlackXRanger - 8th

Again thank you to everyone who took part, the leader board lists a great number of Hammer based pilots who scored during the month and I am thrilled to see how we take this forward into 2022.

With the current evaluation round coming to a close our membership numbers are a little helter-skelter. We've lost a couple of pilots to the reserves as of late and I think a few more will be heading out over the course of the following day or two. To match that though we have welcomed SL ElleOhh to Beta Squadron and I have spoken to a couple of other members who are shortly going to be rejoining our ranks. As always please keep an eye out for new members, not just for your own squadron but others aboard the Hammer and other vessels in the fleet.

A reminder that the Trivia for the Hammered has resumed now that your COM has time to think of questions (proving he can't fly and think perhaps?), we had 17 pilots take part this week and the results can be found below.

Also of interest to everyone - Season Two of the Hammer Tour of Duty has begun, details below but in short you want to fly XWA-TC 21 to 40. The Hammered on the Hammer competition for coming up with a signature drink for our onboard bar is also ongoing. Please get your entries to CM Solohan50 before the end of the month.

Hammered on the Hammer
Your goal for October is simple - create a signature drink or a signature meal for The Drunken Bastion, TheBlackXRanger's winning submission from September. I'm open to other consumables, but they need to be something that The Drunken Bastion is known for. Submissions should be at least 50 words long. Make sure to give it some detail or a backstory of why it's the signature item. Please email your submissions to solohan50@gmail.com.

Prizes are as follows for October:
1st - IS-GR and the signature item becomes an official part of the Hammer canon and added to the Hammer website
2nd - IS-SR and the signature item becomes an official part of the Hammer canon and added to the Hammer website
3rd - IS-BR and the signature item becomes an official part of the Hammer canon and added to the Hammer website
And remember, Pilots, this is taking place during RtF, so you can possibly earn RtF points for the Hammer as well as participate in this! You can create art, create multiple signature items, or something else that I'm not thinking of! Please make sure to follow RtF submission guidelines if you wish to submit them for both competitions. I think that's all I have, so I look forward to reading your submissions!

Trivia for the Hammered - Season Three
Each week, 4 questions will be released via email. For each question, the quickest pilot to answer correctly receives 3 points, second quickest with the correct answer gets 2 points and all the pilots with a correct answer get 1 point.
We tally up at the end of the week with the highest point total winning an IS-BR.
After 8 rounds we tally up for our Season Three winner who will receive an IS-SR, the runner up an IS-BR.
Points earned on each question accrue and lead to IS-CRs being awarded for every multiple of 50 points.

Our last round featured questions around the Nebulon-B Frigate saw CM Solohan50 take the win ahead of CPT Xye! Well done Commander, the IS-BR is on it's way. Additionally GN Coranel Both completed his third set of 50 points and earns a IS-CR. Well done!

A1: 300m

Q2: Who manufactures the Nebulon-B Frigate?
A2: Kuat Drive Yards (KDY)

Q3: After losing his hand in combat Luke Skywalker received treatment aboard a modified Nebulon B Frigate. What was its name?

Q4: The Requiem Scenario was a rebel training run that featured a Nebulon-B Frigate of what name?
