Good Sunday all. This will be a relatively short update to capture some recent news of importance to the Ship.
The first is a change in command of Sin Squadron; Major Wreckage has stepped down as Squadron Commander. As his recent promotion citation stated, Wreckage has been a fantastic Officer since the day he transferred across to the Ship and one of the best CMDRs I've had the pleasure of working with in my mumblesomething decades of TIE Corps membership. His departure back to the line ranks will be keenly missed by the leadership.
But the Wheel continues to turn (...) and Wreckage's successor has been named - Captain SkyShadow! SkyShadow is well known to the Ship as a prodigious producer of Legions of Skirmish and Purveyor of the Tempest Tailoring Tool. His has some mighty boots to fill, and despite being a member of the Royal Airforce, I know he's up to the task. The formal handover of command should take place over the next 24 hrs; if you get the opportunity, please be sure to congratulate both Wreckage on his RL career success and SkyShadow on his CMDR appointment.
Medals of Communication
In case you're not aware, the awarding of Medals of Communication has been delegated down the chain to Commodores. Over the past few weeks I have been catching up on the missing MoCs from July onwards - this past week saw around 37 MoCs awarded to the Pilots of Rho Sqn with just Sin and the ex-Sigma Pilots left for me to catch up on. For many, the MoC is seen as a bit of a "tick box" medal, handed out without much thought. I would argue that communication, whether via Discord, email or other means is a bedrock of our activity in the Fleet and the MoC reflects that.
