THUNDER SQUADRON WSR #60
Both LCM Ryuzokin and CPT Dynamus enter CPT Legion's office and immediately feel a sudden urge of fear waft over them. Both men stand at parade rest, awaiting the captain's words while he just looks away from them, staring out the viewport towards the back of the office. As Legion starts to sip his coffee with his shiny Beskar "Yeti" cup, the two flight leads dare not ask how in all that is sane did he drink the coffee through his mask. Legion then turns around to look at the flight leaders, cup in hand, and starts to ask, "Gentlemen, I would first like to congratulate you on your efforts during Inferno's Signal Scramble competition. Well done to the both of you." The captain started to slowly walk closer to them. "That being said, I find myself in a...unusual situation."
"What situation would that b-", Ryuzokin started to ask but was quickly stopped with a raised hand by Legion.
"I'm getting to that Lieutenant Commander", Legion replied, with a hint of aggravation through his mask's voice modulator.
"It would seem that as of this moment, we stand on a literal ticking time bomb. Our pilots are running the risk of being declared AWOL by high command, an event that has yet to happen on my watch. Now I know it is bound to happen sooner or later, but regardless of how that looks on my record, it looks bad for the whole squadron."
At that moment, Legion then suddenly clamps down on the Beskar cup so hard that it now looks like crumpled paper, "I find this situation, MILDLY, irritating. It would be best that you get your flights in order before I start to see this situation as ANNOYING! . . . you are dismissed." The two men slowly start walking out of the office, and as the door closes they make a mad dash back to the barracks to solve their issue. It was at this point Legion looks at the crumpled Beskar cup and sighs in disappointment, knowing that the next call he has to make is going to give even more headaches to all parties. He starts to sit at his desk and moments later a hologram of COL Marenta comes to life with her not looking happy at all. "Legion, I swear to every Force ghost out there, if this is about ordering another damned Beskar "Yeti" cup, I'm sending the next one with a proton torpedo straight to your office!" Marenta yelled at him. All Legion could do was stare at the pile of Beskar cups in the corner that seemed to have followed a similar fate to this latest one.
SQUADRON NEWS / COMPETITIONS / EVENTS
Welcome Thunder Pilots to this week's report!G'Day Thunder,
Like the story above, I would like to congratulate both LCM Ryuzokin and CPT Dynamus on their efforts towards the Inferno Signal Scramble. Well done you two. I had hoped I could still convey more good news, but sadly (as the story above implies) I am somewhat disappointed in the lack of communication around the board.
Now I know that there aren't many within the squadron currently, that does not mean that we go months on end without any communication at all. This was the reason why many from Thunder had to go to the reserves, as they saw that communication was going to be difficult for them due to real life. Again, it isn't a bad thing to go to the reserves if you feel the need to do so. As it just holds your pilot status from being put into AWOL status. AWOL is not something anyone should just take lightly either. It strips your pilot rank and removes you completely from the TIE Corps. So if you wish to prevent that, please do not hesitate to talk to me.
Flight Leads, I know you are keeping in contact with me, but I also need you to keep in contact with your Flights. So please make sure if you haven't heard from them, please do check up on them. I am relying on you to help your fellow pilots.
That is all I have this week, LT's be sure to take your TCCORE test ASAP. If you don't know how, get in touch with your FL's. Be sure to read until the end of the report as I want to add a little extra test.
