"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."

(Not A Commander Yet,Reamer)

Comment by Maj. Roger "Reamer" Barstow on October 17, 2015 at 7:55am

(Maj. Reamer stands at Attention and salutes as Colonel Leonidas speaks to his former squadron. Leonidas knows he will miss being in the cockpit of his Viper leading his pilots into battle.

All great leaders no very well things don't remain the same forever. Change is the gateway to the future we do not know about. Leonidas's speech is bitter sweet as he addresses his pilots for the last time as their commander.

Then Leonidas returns the salute to Reamer as he hand stands away from the podium so I can take his place. This is the end of his former command, but it's only the beginning of greater things to come......)

Well said Commander Leonidas!!! We will miss you, but as you mentioned you are not leaving the Raven Family. You're nearby like the little brother protecting the Raven from an enemy that wants to destroy her.

I will lead the Raven's Airwing in the profession of the Warrior I served under. The Spartan Squadron will continue to carry forth the legacy you have instilled into each and every pilot of this formidable Squadron.

I pledge to lead them into battle as a former Spartan. None of the members of the Raven Airwing will ever give up their weapons even if it means certain death. The Ravens Airwing will forever stand tall in the defense of the Fleet and our beloved home we know as the Battlestar Raven.

(The Spartan squadron salute Maj. Reamer as the Major turns once more toward Colonel Leonidas to salute him before he departs to board his new command the Gunstar Trireme.)

We have your back Commander Leonidas. All you need to do is simply call out to us and we'll be there in an instant if not sooner!!!

Good Hunting Sir!!!

 A Few Announcements:

First, By Order of Raven Actual,Robert 'NADER' Vonada is Advanced to the Rank of FULL LIEUTENANT; Congratulations,Nader!


Second,( and Forgive me For Not Doing this Earlier; For as was Said Before we are Not All Masters of our own Time) I Would Like to Bestow My Highest Personal Commendation to STEVEN 'DRAGONSTARR' ELLIOT (Aka 'The Voice'); At Galacticon IV in Seattle, He did A Outstanding Job, Keeping the Convention Floor Informed with Charm and Alacrity, And Showing True Spartan Spirit with his Work; WELL DONE!

And Finally, For Those Who Haven't Heard: As of August 1,2015, I Am No Longer Your Squadron Commander,or your CAG; I Have Been Relieved of Both of those Posts to Take Up my New Assignment,Commanding the GUNSTAR TRIREME,The First Escort Vessel of the RAVEN BATTLE GROUP.

Just So You Know, I Did Recommend One of you to Succeed Me In leading the Squadron; However, Raven Actual Feels it Prudent to look Elsewhere for your Next Squadron Commander,Which is Quite Understandable, Seeing as Real Life Can Take us Away From What we Do Here; I Am Quite Confident She will Find one Who will Be Worthy of This:

In the Meantime, Maj. Roger 'Reamer' Barstow, Who Started his Career Here,With this Squadron, Has Taken up the Post Of Raven CAG; I Expect you all to Give him the Same Respect you all have Given Me; He will Prove Quite Effective In Leading the Air Wing Without A Doubt!

Finally, I Encourage you all To Carry on in the BFC, The Raven, And In the Squadron in True Spartan Spirit, And Make Sure Our Enemies Know What Response they Will Get When they Demand you Give up your Weapons:


And, If any of you Wish My Advice,In general,You are Free to Contact me; Because, I Will not Be Leaving the Raven Family;All You have to do is Look Outside the Nearest window for A Cygnus Class Gunstar!

May the Lords of Kobol Bless and Protect you all; So Say We All!

                         K.A. 'LEONIDAS' Ranson

Today is the 15th Anniversary of the Battlestar Fan Club; We here owe A lot to Those who have Put in the Work,and Are Still Putting in the Work to Make the BFC one of the Biggest Fan Organizations In the genre of Science Fiction!

  It takes A lot Of Work,Imagination,and Enthusiasm to Make something where we can All Add our Stories to This Saga Of A Star World; It is OUR Responsibility,and that of Future Generations,to Keep The Stories Coming,and to Perpetuate The Lonely Quest of Humans to Find Earth; So Say We All!

Next CAP: Batman,Short Round,And Thumper: Starboard Flight Deck,Skids up in Ten!

It is my Sad Duty to Announce that Actor Patrick MacNee,Best Known for Being the Voice of the Cylon Imperious Leader,And the Role of Count Iblis in the Original BSG,Has Passed; His Distinctive Voice Is Something we will All Remember as part of the Culture of BSG,So Say We All!


Comment by Col. Keith "Leonidas" Ranson on June 21, 2015 at 4:16pm

BTW, No Disrespect intended for the MOMS Who Have to play BOTH Roles,For their Jobs are the Toughest of All!

Comment by Col. Keith "Leonidas" Ranson on June 21, 2015 at 5:03am


 First, I would like To Wish All The Fathers A Very Happy Fathers Day! The Point that is often most Forgotten is that Anyone can bring A Child into the World;But to Be A Parent,To Provide for the Child,To Tech the Child Core Values,Especially Right From Wrong, To Nurture the Child,and Help Him/Her on A Path,That is What Describes The Male Parent,aka The Father; It is one job that is Not for the Faint of heart; It requires Dedication,Sacrifice,and Most Importantly,Love.

Next, There is A Mission Scheduled for Saturday Night,June 27th; The Briefing for OP 'BACK ATCHA' Is posted On the Raven's Main BFC Page.

Finally, Today is the Birthday of the One Individual Who has Worked Hard to Make all that We do Possible; Despite the fact this Person has A Busy Career in the (Real World) Military,and A Family at Home and Overseas; This Person has Been Front and Center Behind Making the Battlestar Fan Club,and the Flaghip of the Fleet,The Raven,Remain at the Forefront of BSG Fandom and Lore; It is with this Dedication that We are Adding to this Saga of a star World,And Perpetuating The Adventure for Future Generations!




Now, the Next CAP: Booster Gold,Short Round and Foxy Chrome, Port Flight Deck,Skids up In Ten!


Comment by Col. Keith "Leonidas" Ranson on May 24, 2015 at 3:28pm


It is my Honor to Announce that Dragonlady,Our Commander,and A Member of This Squadron has been Advanced to the Rank of REAR ADMIRAL,by authority of Admiral of the Fleet Miguel Rivera,at Comicpalooza Houston This Weekend!

  She has Worked Long and Hard, Not only as Commander of the Raven,But As Vice President of the Battlestar Fan Club, To Promote BSG Fandom At Every opportunity;And This, Combined with her Career in the(Real-World)Military,and A Family To Watch over Makes Her Almost Demigod-Like In Stature; Hercules had His 12 Labors, But Could He Match Dragonlady?


        (OUU!  OUU!  OUU!)                SO SAY WE ALL!
