"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."

People of the Fleet,

Today, The GUNSTAR TRIREME,First Escort of the RAVEN BATTLE GROUP,is One Year Old;We Stand Before the BFC Fleet as It's Newest Addition;We are,to Date, Proud of What we Have Built so Far;We,of course, Know that we Are Still in our Infancy,and Taking Toddler Steps Forward;However there is Confidence that we have the Solid Foundation for Success;And,With A Dedicated Crew,and Hard Work,That Success will be Assured.

At Galacticon IV, In Seattle,Wash.,One Year Ago, The Trireme was Officially Commissioned in A Ceremony Presided by Lucianna 'KAT' Carro,Where She Read our Official Orders from Fleet Admiral Rivera.

(It was Originally Intended to Have Edward James Olmos(that's right,Adama Himself) Preside;Unfortunately,A Last Minute Development Prevented his attending; Oh Well, Stuff Happens.) However, We Express our Profound Gratitude to Lucianna for Filling in,and Making it Special;WELL DONE,KAT! SO SAY WE ALL!

I was Presented with the Trireme's Booth Banner,And Officially Relieved of My Duties on the Battlestar Raven;

Needless to Say,Galacticon was A Memorable Event!

In the Time Since then,Myself and my Command Staff have been Laying the Foundation for the Trireme to Succeed;There is,Of Course,More Work to be Done;However,as we Bring in New Members, and Continue to Grow;There is No Doubt we will Establish the Basis for Future Chapters to Follow, as the Flagship,the BATTLESTAR RAVEN,Has Done for Us.

Our Mission,Our Mandate,is Simple;As the First Escort of the RAVEN BATTLE GROUP,We are Tasked with Having the Raven's Back in Combat,Pretty Much like in A Real-World Carrier Battle Group where Frigates and Destroyers Protect the Flattop; In The first Few Encounters, The Trireme has Stood Fast Against the Cylon Threat,and Added It's Firepower to the Already Awesome Firepower and Squadrons of the Raven; It is Already Said the Cylons are Shook at what We can do Now.

To Celebrate our First Year In Existence, I Am Revealing TRIREME SHIP PATCHES:

These Patches have been Manufactured by Quality Patches,the Same Company that Made Certain Patches for the Raven;This Company was Highly Recommended by ADM. Dragonlady;And,Up Close, They indeed do Good Work!

The Patches are Three Inches Round In Diameter,Black Thread on White.

From the Initial Batch I Have Ordered, I have Reserved some for Myself,and to Present to Certain Individuals;

These will Be Ideal for Collecting;However, Only OFFICIAL Members of the Crew can Wear these on Uniforms.

I will Have about 35 Patches FOR SALE at $7.00 USD; THERE WILL BE A STRICT LIMIT OF TWO,WHILE 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 Details(No, I will Not Do This Thru PayPal).

I Am Proud of What we Have Done in our First Year;And, I Have  Great Optimism For Our Second Year.

SO SAY WE ALL!
