"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."

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!

 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!

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!
