Welcome aboard the Raven Zar! I am Freya the Raven’s Operations officer and one of the assistant Squadron Leaders for the Ravens only Raptor Squadron The Seekers. I see you are interested in Flying Vipers, That is an excellent choice. The Raven is home to 6 Viper Squadrons and 1 Raptor Squadron. Take the time to get to know the site and when you are ready you can join a squadron group page, don’t forget to join the Raven group page to keep up with the ships happenings. If you have any questions please let me know. I look forward to flying with you soon.
Hi Zar Pof, yes there is a lot to take in. The secret is to take it steady, bit by bit. First you have signed on to the Battleastar Raven, so you should look at the groups section on the homepage and join the Battlestar Raven group to be a full crew member.
Second you have volunteered to be a Viper polot. While I would welcome you to Perseus Squadron, you have a free choice of which squadron to join. The best information about the squadrons can be found in the battlestarraven-bfc-002 website. When you have decided which squadron to join, you should then join that group also.
Third to be a qualified combat Viper pilot you need to download the Viper mkii training manual, you will find a link on your squadron page. The manual has ten chapters, the last of which is the test. You email your test answers to Admiral Rivera, again you can find his email address on your squadron page. Once you have qualified you can assume the rank of Ensign.
I think thats enough for now, there's lots of information to be found by exploring the homepage, particularly blog posts. Have fun!
You will be getting more messages from Mik Mo, the CAG, and Freya, the Raven ops officer, and senior fanclub officials. Just take it steady.

In our group, we share fan works of all kinds related to Battlestar Weaponry and have discussions about the ship, lore, and everything going on with the Club. Additionally, we offer preparations for chat-based Operations, where members of many groups come together and relive the unique experience of participating in a battle against the never-ending threat of Cylons.
