"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."

ALL HANDS:
Today is the 38th Anniversary of the Debut of what we have come to Revere and Follow as BSG.
In the Same Evening as the Prime Time Emmys,The Pilot Episode, 'Saga of A Star World' was launched,Beginning the Odyssey of A Group of Humans,Who Survived A Holocaust Attack by A Machine Race,and are Now Searching for their Brothers who Inhabit A Planet Known as Earth.
This Saga was Presented to Us by Writer/Producer Glen A. Larson, Who Conceptualized the Story at the Time Star Trek was Being Birthed; It would be Another Ten Years Later,along with A Film called Star Wars,that would Bring the Saga to Television.
Sadly, Mainly because of (then) High Production Costs, It only Lasted One Season; They Attempted to Re-Ignite The Series Two Years Later; That Effort Failed.
Since then,The Legion of Fans has Been Growing, thanks to Syndication,and Video Tape,Along with Comic Books,Novels, and Other Fan Efforts; In the '90s There have been Calls to Bring BSG Back; There was a Plan by FOX TV To Bring it Back to the Small Screen in the Early '00s; When they Dropped the Ball, it was picked up by the Sci-Fi Channel and Writer Ronald D. Moore; He Proceeded to Give the Saga a more Grittier and Realistic Look.
The Rest is History; The Battlestar Fan Club was Born just Before the Rebirth,and has Provided A Base to which we all can Express our Support and Fandom.
Today, We owe Honor and Gratitude to the Late Mr. Larson, For giving us A Compelling Story of A Fight for Survival,to which we all can add our stories to,and become A Part of.
SO SAY WE ALL!

Crew of the TRIREME,

This Day, August 1st, Is Our First Anniversary.

On this Day, One Year Ago, the GUNSTAR TRIREME was Officially Comissoned at Galacticon IV in Seattle,Wash., In a Ceremony Presided by Lucianna 'KAT' Carro, Who read our Official orders from Fleet Admiral Rivera:

(It was originally Intended to have Edward James Olmos Preside(That's right,the Old Man Himself); However,Due to an Unforseen event Days Earlier,he was Unable to attend the Convention)I was Presented with our Booth Banner,and Officially was Relieved of my Duties on the Battlestar Raven.

Since then, I have Devoted Time,Effort and Material to Building The Ship's Departments,And Laying the Foundation; Myself,My XO,'Bunny' Nonemaker,and my TAC/OPS Officer,'Faceman' Ursiny Have Pretty Much Set the Stage for our Success.

Our Mission,Our Mandate, is Simple: As A Member of the RAVEN BATTLE GROUP, to Have the Raven's Back in Combat;And In Several Encounters,We have Stood Fast Against the Cylon Threat,as Our Escort Mission Indicates; This was Done with The Help of A Dedicated Crew;To you all, I Thank You!

Now, Figureatively, We are Still Taking our Baby Steps;However, As we Continue to Grow and Bring new Members into our Ranks;We will Be Known More and More,and Make the Raven Battle Group Known in the Annals of BSG Fandom; More Work is Ahead of Us to get there.

Now,Without Further Ado, The Reveal: TRIREME SHIP'S PATCH

These Patches were Made By Quality Patches,The Same Company that Manufactured Certain Patches for the Raven;This Company was Recommended By ADM. Dragonlady.

The Patches are 3 Inch Round in Diameter, Black Thread on White; I have reserved A few for myself, and to Present to Certain Individuals;Therefore, I Will have About 35 Available FOR SALE;They are Useful for Collecting;However only OFFICIAL Members of the Ship can Wear them on Uniforms.

These will Be Available for $7.00 USD Apiece, there will be A strict Limit of 2,As Supplies Last.

If you are Interested In Purchasing,Please PM me,Either Thru my Personal BFC Page,or my E-Mail kranson@nc.rr.com,and I Can Provide Further Details(No, I will not Do this Thru PayPal,as they can Be Quite Grabby of Funds,From What I've been Told).

We have Accomplished our First Year; Let's make our Second Year Greater!

SO SAY WE ALL!

K.A. 'Leonidas' Ranson

Commanding,GSR-0201
