"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."

Gunstar Trireme-GSR 0201

Gustar Trireme -GSR 0201 is the first and lead gunstar escort of Battlestar Raven-BFC 002, the Flagship Chapter of Battlestar Galactica Fan Club.  

Mantra of the Trireme from her Commander:

"We are the ancestors of those ancient sailors who went charging ahead into battle! Teeth bared, and ready to take on all who challenged the fleet. "

    " We may not have the magnificence of a Battlestar however, we will SEIZE OUR GLORY by letting the enemy know they will have to get past our GUNS, and our willingness to use them! To those who survive our barrages, they will know better next time!"

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!


K.A. 'Leonidas' Ranson
