TIE Corps Command Report
Weekly Report #90 – Submission date: November 30th 2014
Introduction

Welcome to the latest edition of the TCCOM report!

I’d like to start this report by reminding all of us that we are all here by our own choice. No member ever was or will be more important than the club itself. Disagreements will always happen, but they should never be blown out of proportion. Nothing is gained by taking out our frustrations on others. The moment this stops being fun and constructive is the time when we have to really consider a change, but how we face these changes can define us. In the end, I think all I wanted to say is that destructive behaviors are not welcome here, as much as anywhere.

As you know, the Commendations of Loyalty have been properly awarded this week. Congratulations to the following officers: LC Impulse, LC Michael Emrys, GN Pickled Yoda, MAJ Flelm, John T. Clark, COL Gyssler, COL Jarek La’an, LCM Chrome, VA Daniel Stephens, LC Plif, GN Anahorn Dempsey, HA Frodo March, VA Crsepe and VA Elwood the Brave.

Some progress was achieved in the TCPM review this week, but that had to be put aside for a while. I hope to resume activities this week.

Back to TCCOM usual business, this week we were glad to see the promotion of one of our best Squadron Commanders. Congratulations to Lieutenant Colonel Plif!

CPT Nutrientman’s stint as interim Beta Squadron Commander has come to an end, with the position being filled now by COL Alexander Almasy. Congratulations, Colonel, and good luck. I’d also like to express my appreciation to CPT Nutrientman for his service. By the way, at first it was announce that CPT Nutrientman was moving to Sin Squadron, but that was my mistake. Actually, for now, he has returned to Delta Squadron.

Lieutenant Cormir has asked for a name change this week, and is now LT Sparky.

LCM Simomime transferred to the reserves, but fortunately he decided to return to active duty soon after. I’m not even sure the shuttle reached the M/FRG Phoenix

On the other hand, MAJ Landon Cruise, COL Jacob Van Nowak, MAJ Bryan and CM Drake Starfire have transferred to the Phoenix. LT Raiden and LT Senda were declared absent without leave.

These transfers caused Alpha and Kappa Squadrons to be CMDRless. Fortunately, Alpha Squadron was immediately taken over by MAJ Delak Krennel. Congratulations on your appointment, Major, and good luck! Kappa Commander position is open to applications, as is Alpha Squadron Flight 3 Leader.

VA Crsepe has taken upon himself to host the Pazaak competition, which will happen throughout December. Check the details in the Competitions Center!

If this goes well, we could see the competition upgraded in 2015 to award a IS-PR to the number one recruiter during 2015! That is all pilots. Time to get those recruits and grow the TIE Corps!
