2-22-2014 PLANET “T” Elimination Mission

Hi Everyone,

Planning a mission of this magnitude takes research to make it believable that it could have taken place in the BSG Universe. Even though there was available information about Planet “T;” Sgt Paul “Iceworm” Oakley and Col. Keith “Leonidas” Ranson were required to work out the details before the crew of the Battlestar Raven could perform the mission. The next hurdle is to choose a date that best fits in everyone’s schedule that would like to take part of the event.

One of our goals aboard the Raven is to keep as many crew members as possible interested and active so they don’t just become a name on a roster in a fan club. Anyone can compile a list of names to give the illusion of a great place for a given set of fans to join and have fun interacting with like minded individuals. It’s much different to actually have such a place where fans truly have fun.

We will continue to strive to achieve our goal until the Battlestar Raven is a reflection of an actual Battlestar operating in the BSG Universe.

SO SAY WE ALL!!!!!

Copy Captain. All alien and other suspicious materials are of course subject to standard quarantine and decontamination protocols. You know how I love to follow rules.

Comment by Capt. Roger "Reamer" Barstow on February 27, 2014 at 2:29pm

I know what you're saying. I've seen images of shot down enemy fighter planes during WW-II. Some of our troops would keep a piece of the tail or cut a section out of the fuselage with an insignia to hang on a wall as a trophy.

I'm sure we could find a few scrap pieces from some toasters that would look awesome in our briefing room or locker rooms aboard the Raven. Just make sure there are no secret listening devices inside the wreckage brought back aboard the Raven!!!!! We have enough problems with Cylon spies.

Comment by Paul "Iceworm" Oakley on February 26, 2014 at 5:16pm

Do Raiders have name plates or markings, maybe like the double pentagon symbols on the Classic Cylon craft? Those would make great trophies. There's bound to be a few derelicts floating around in the battle area. We should volunteer to take a Raptor to do damage assessment of the target.

Comment by Capt. Roger "Reamer" Barstow on February 26, 2014 at 4:47pm

The only thing I can think of would be the spoils of war!!!!!! This time, we weren't able to keep any  Tylium for ourselves maybe next time.
