It's nearly Life Day again, and that means a time of reflection upon our last year: and, what a year it's been. Last year, the ISDII Challenge was reactivated under HA Dempsey, and by this time we had just finished our first Raise the Flag in many years. Soon after, we would win TIE Corps in Battle as the smallest ship. The new year saw us take victory in every fleet-wide competition, from Firebird's win in the Challquilla cup, Tempest's and Firebird's high placements in Squadron ReMob, another TIE Corps in Battle victory, a resounding win in Imperial Storm 3, and a win in Raise the Flag 2021 to cap off the year. It was not an easy fight, and we cannot afford to be complacent, but what it shows is that we are a strong ship, victorious not because of a few but because of contributions from every officer on this ship.

When I was offered the opportunity to become the Challenge's commodore last July, I was shocked, excited, and nervous. The Challenge was my first ship, 14 years ago, and to be given command over such a highly decorated ship, one full of individuals who had put their heart into building the Challenge into what it is today, was humbling. You've all shown me what it means to be an officer of the TIE Corps, from brand-new Lieutenants who spend hours creating art, to the LCMs who run complex competitions, the squadron commanders who dedicate hours upon hours to building their squadrons, and even the occasional Colonel who writes tittilating fiction entries. We have pilots who are carrying the torch of XvT and XWA PvP, we have pilots who have flown nearly every mission in the Battle Compendium. We have poets, we have artists, and we have some of the best Squadrons pilots in the fleet. We have musicians, chefs, and theorycrafters. Our diversity is what makes us strong, and if there's one thing I want to carry on and to build upon in the new year, it is that strength.

Thank you all for making this an amazing place to spend my TIE Corps career. Everybody here has an impact, far beyond what you can possibly imagine.

Yeah, yeah, drinks are on me for the Life Day party.


The third COO's Saturday Shootout is behind us, and another ten Iron Stars with Copper Wings have been recommended. The office of the Combat Operations Officer (FA Miles Prower) runs an event every Saturday at 1800 EST / 2300 GMT, where we try to get as many people online at once as possible for PvP games.


Welcome SL Stralen, who joins Eagle, as well as SL Jarl Torment, who joins Firebird squadron. Congratulations to LT Artificial of Thunder squadron and CPT Morgoth of Tempest squadron on their promotions! As the most senior ranking officer, drinks are on CPT Morgoth this week. It's not like the LTs have much salary to speak of anyways. Drummer the Gunner Nate and Sylas Pitt have each received a Medal of Instruction for their recruiting efforts.
