"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

It was Actually Iceworm who Hinted to me About EJO Possibly Presiding over the Ceremony;This was after the News that he Pulled out because the other RDM Cast had their Appearances Cancelled; I was so in hopes of meeting him too,Since I Almost did when he was in Fayetteville 10 Years Ago(A Family Medical Emergency Prevented that);However, It Was What it was;Luciana Is such A Doll! She actually Stopped by the Raven Table Earlier that Day and We Chatted;So, It was Still An honor To have  Her to Read the Official Orders; However,I'm in No Real Rush Either; I'm Almost finished with the Resin Trireme Kit,and the Extra time Will give me A chance to get Caught up on my Mk.VII; So,Actual,We will continue to stand By.

Comment by Maj. Roger "Reamer" Barstow on August 14, 2015 at 7:52am

I totally understand Actual Ma'am. I thought it was awesome to see Luciana read the commissioning orders for Col Leonidas at G4. Take care of your self and waiting isn't a problem at all with me.

Comment by DragonLady4732 on August 14, 2015 at 6:45am
I just like to do things the right way and make it special too for people involve in it just like the way the Trireme was officially commissioned. No group has been commissioned or launch by an actual member of the show. The Trireme is the first one. And I thank Luciana for that. EJO was suppose to originally do it but as you all know, he ended up not going to G4. And Luciana was CAG of the Galactica twice at some point in the show. She and I have known each other since 2007. I love her character on the show. She is spunky like me.
Comment by Maj. Roger "Reamer" Barstow on August 14, 2015 at 6:36am

Please forgive me Actual. I'm the one at fault here not Leonidas. I of all people should know to wait for word form you Ma'am.

Comment by Col. Keith "Leonidas" Ranson on August 13, 2015 at 5:21pm

Trying to make sure that It does not go Further Until the Proper time.

Comment by DragonLady4732 on August 13, 2015 at 3:42pm
Accused of jumping the gun Leonidas? Need I remind you the discussion we had in person at G4...I did not want for everyone to know just yet who the new CAG is but, the cat is out of the bag once again....There is such a thing called OPSEC until it has been released to the public. I had to do a Change of Command Ceremony today and have been very busy because I am getting to go overseas for two weeks. Patience is a virtue that everyone must learn here. And it has nothing to do with the aftermath after G4. It has a lot to do with real life responsibilities for me.
Comment by Col. Keith "Leonidas" Ranson on August 13, 2015 at 2:52pm

Not trying to Dampen Anyone's Spirits Here, I think we need to Let the BFC Leadership Handle The OFFICIAL Announcement of the Changes; I suspect things are Still Going kind of Slow in the Aftermath of G4;But,we don't want to Be accused of Jumping the Gun at this Point; Just sit tight for A Bit; Things should get Moving again.

Thanks Hotwire!!! How's it going in your next of the woods? I wish I could have been more of a help to Zoe with the Viper Raffle. I really thought more people would have been interested in purchasing the tickets.

The Viper went to the right person though and I know its really appreciated especially with the artwork Zoe and her two sisters created along with the letter your wife wrote on the back of the artwork.

Comment by Lt. Justin "HotWire" James on August 13, 2015 at 2:29am
Outstanding, sir! Can't wait to see what's next
Comment by Maj. Roger "Reamer" Barstow on August 12, 2015 at 9:07am

Hi Everyone,

I'm not sure if you've been following what's been happening on the Ravens Facebook page. You may know the Battlestar Raven has become a Battle Group with the addition of the Gunstar Trireme which is Commanded by Colonel Leonidas.

There was a time that becoming CAG aboard the Raven was the furthest thing from my mind. In the last few days, I was offered to take Col Leonidas' place as the Raven next CAG.

I'm awaiting the official word from Raven Actual and until then, I'm thinking of new ideas to breath some new life into the Airwing and to continue to make the Raven the best Battlestar in the Fleet.
