Welcome to the Battlestar Fan Club (BFC) Barry, it's great to have you join the club!!!
I see your favorite BSG character is Starbuck. I’m a fan of everything concerning Battlestar Galactica. Being a Viper Pilot, my favorite character is Starbuck from both the Original and Re-imagined BSG. From a man’s point of view, when it comes to Cylon skin jobs, I’m partial to the 6’s and the 8’s.
I see that you joined the crew of the Trireme and you want to be a Viper Pilot. I’ve been told that Gunstars like the Trireme don’t have Vipers because they don’t have launch tubes. Don’t get me wrong, you can still be a member of the Trireme. The Trireme has Raptors and maybe you could be a Viper and Raptor Pilot. As a crewman of the Trireme you would fly Raptors and from time to time you could take out a Viper from the Battlestar Raven.
Gunstar Trireme is part of the Battlestar Raven’s Battle Group which currently has 1 Raptor squadron and 6 Viper squadrons. If you want to become a Viper Pilot you certainly came to the right place.
Each training manual has an exam at the end. The exams are multiple choice and they are open book exams. If you finish either the Viper or Raptor training manuals you will earn your wings and if you score 100% on the Viper exam you will also become a “TOP GUN” Viper pilot. The Ops manual will give you a certificate of completion, but the information you learn about the military wing of the BSG Universe will be a great help to you as a Pilot.
I am Major Reamer squadron leader of the Flying Tiger's. I am always looking for a few more Viper pilots to join my group as well.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me anytime here at the BFC.
