The mighty ISD Hammer.
Deadly, Powerful, Pointy!

She lay in a elliptical orbit around a small rocky lifeless poor excuse for a moon.
Majority of pilots and other crew turned in for the night, tired after a long period of readiness and mock battles the best in the TIECorps were hoping for the peaceful serenity of rest.

Fate it seems would deny them.

A slow tune echoed across the vastness of the mighty starship, eerily beautiful even those within the grip of twilight could not even escape its ballad.
Unheard in generations, it slowly increased in tempo and before long even the most deepest sleepers lay upon their bunks listening, wondering, waiting.

Deep within the bowels of the ship, someone was more than awake.
He was alive with the sound of the universe.
And while not the cause of the unearthly ballad, he revelled in it, breathed in the sheer enormity of what would now begin and the fear echoing throughout spurned by what was to come.
And he begun to laugh.

Even the strongest, chilled by the tune now hid deeper within their bunks, praying, hoping, unsure.

 It slowly reached its crescendo, all the while not even the flight staff noticed, too fearful, lost in their own world, a single shuttle followed by a battered TIE Fighter landed upon the deck of the mighty starship.

Several departed the craft, and without warning the tune stopped and their was silence.

Then the screaming began....


***~CMDR's Wild Rant~***
"Are all men from the future loud-mouthed braggarts?"
"Nope. Just me baby... Just me."

And so my children, i bid you all a very happy April Fool's Day and submit the following awesomeness to your emaily inbox goodness.
May it not explode your brain or something equally as cool looking.

This report proudly brought to you by High Chieftain Master
He's looking at you!


***~Squadron News~***
*Operation: The Four Horsemen*
I tried to warn you all!
But no one listened!

And its now far too late....

Gamma Squadron, the TC and the EH are proud (and afraid) to celebrate the return.
What started as an inside joke and a dream somehow took upon a life of its own, making not only me look good but giving poor AD Eclipse a small aneurysm.

And now, even I'm afraid.

Today we celebrate the return of several pilots, each incredibly skilled in all forms of combat, tutored in the art of drinking, and above all else, deadly in every sense.


FL COL Daniel Bonini
FM COL Zosite Konstyte Styles
FM CM Impulse
FM COL Viper Pred

These four have returned to the world that sired them, confident in their awesomeness, deadly in combat and ready to rock the very foundation of the TC.
You want my suggestion, we will be coming for you. You wont expect it. But get ready to run!

*Operation: Tempest Fury*

Well, i did warn you to either join us or get out of our way. Seems someone was smart enough to heed my warning even if he didn't believe me.

While celebrating the return of the Horsemen would normally be enough, I'm not finished!

Gamma Squadron, the TC and EH is also once again proud and still really afraid to celebrate the return of a being so revered that you subconsciously think of him every time you get into your pretty uniform.

Ladies, Gentlemen, Ender.

I give you the return of LC Tempest.
Creator of perhaps the most intriguing TIE Free in the compendium as well as those uniforms that you all wear, I'm sure Tempest returning is surly an impending sign of the apocalypse.
And if its not, it is now....

The Tempest joins Flight 2.

All roster changes are listed below in the rostery section.

Afraid yet?....

If the return of the previous pilots weren't enough, lets all give a big welcome to (now) LT meleagris Gallopavo.

LT Gallopavo joins us direct from the training platform and quickly was promoted to the rank of LT.

Make him feel welcome, we were all new once after all...i think.


*Operation: This will probably end badly...*

AWOL check completed.
All but two pilots replied.

The two pilots who didn't, and you know who u are since I've just sent you both emails will find yourselves sent to the RSVs in 48hrs.
This is your final final final warning.

Everyone else gets a cookie.

*Roster Changes.*
With the mass arrivals, there have been a few roster changes.
Gamma Pilots you may have been moved.
Check out the roster below, any problems with your current location let me know and I'll see what i can do.

*Competition: Awesomeness*

Well i didn't get as many submissions as id like, but that doesn't mean i wont still accept any late submissions.

No one seemed to want to submit a banner, so we'll just have to use one i created until i get a better one.
If you don't like it i DON'T CARE! Next time submit.

See the new banner below.
Personally i don't like it, but its not my fault. LET THIS BE A LESSON!
And I shall call you...

Flight Nicknames are as follows:

Flight 1: The Dogs of War
Flight 2: The Wolfpack
Flight 3: The Four Horsemen

Motto's and anything else welcome.

*Gamma Squadron - The Runon*

Tattoo's are mandatory and will resist all efforts to remove/cover them.
