Hi Paul,

Just click the Viper/Raptor Manuals link to find the manuals and how to submit exams. All exams are sent to the Fleet CAG Admiral Rivera.

Hi Paul,

Here's a link to the Viper and Raptor Manuals on my squadron page: http://battlestarfanclub.com/group/flying-tigers-squadron-logo/forum/topics/viper-and-raptor-training-manuals

The Viper exam has some question that are similar to the Raptor exam you've already taken. I recommend all my pilots to take both exams for this very reason. If you score 100% on the Viper exam you will become a Top Gun pilot.

Here's a link to the CDF Ops Manual as well. The Ops Manual is loaded with very interesting and useful BSG information and it also has an exam at the end.


Have fun and I wish you the best.

Sorry to get back to you so late. I just noticed your question. Blackstar squadron is into costuming for the Original Series.  There's also another group on Face Book that organizes something like Cosplay Day, or something like that. I'll try to find it for you. They have specific dates they try to get groups and individuals to suit up in their costumes in public.

Note that BFC web site and face page are good for GENERAL information, the RAVEN site page and facebook page have much more data germane to our circle. Then the other pages, like the costume Group, are just extra fun and sources. Suggest you look at the page on any member you want to "Friend" before doing so. Cheers.

Hello Paul,

Most certainly you can be a pilot, and of both Vipers and Raptors if you wish. Completing that course and testing will get you commissioned as an Ensign JG, I believe. Promotions occur usually once a year in December/January, but are late this year. Positions other than Pilot start as low level enlisted. If you start as an officer, you carry that rank into any other job, and there are many: Engineers; Bridge Crew; Doctor; Historian; Marine; and many more. They call you nugget but you're way ahead of the game, as there is a strong class/caste system. Some Command slots require being a Pilot. See this site for rank structure and Collar Pips: http://en.battlestarwiki.org/wiki/Military_Ranks_(RDM) . Note that ALL Major Military ships have hangers and organic Pilots and craft. I would suggest that you consider being a Pilot, Trireme Command Staff AND perhaps a Colonial Marine. Note that Raptor Pilots are NOT considered Combat Pilots, though they fight and attack enemy ships and ground forces, again the Class System. So, you joined the Raven and that will soon show on your page here, you can be in our Battle Group Group (not a typo), and any other Group as long as it is not another ship not IN our Battle Group: for example a Raven BG squadron; and the Raven Leadership Group (by invitation only); and the gamers; and the UK Costuming Group (one of my Groups, with excellent costume data base); or many others. Enough rambling, will send more later, lmk if you have more questions. Note that the BFC site is military stuff and members only, FaceBook site preferably for more social and non-member cont. Take care, Paul

Welcome aboard the Battlestar Raven Paul, it's great to have you join our crew! ! ! !

I see that your favorite BSG character is Colonel Tigh. I’m a fan of both Old and New Galactica and my favorite character is Starbuck from both series. When it comes to Cylon skin jobs, I’m partial to the 6’s and the 8’s.

If you’re interested in becoming a Viper or Raptor pilot you couldn’t have come to a better place than the Battlestar Raven BFC-002

As Col Leonidas mentioned, there is one Raptor and six Viper squadrons aboard the Battlestar Raven. You can check all of them out at this link:  http://battlestarfanclub.com/groups/group/listByLocation?location=Battlestar+Raven

At the present time Spartan, Perseus, Hammer, Minotaur and Blackstar squadrons are shorthanded and are looking for more pilots.

The Battlestar Raven is becoming a Battle Group with the addition of the Gunstar Trireme. Gunstar Trireme is looking for crew members as well. Take a look at this link if you’re interested in joining the group: http://battlestarfanclub.com/group/gunstar-trireme-gsr-0201

If flying a Viper isn’t your style, the Raven has many alternatives. You could join The Marines, Engineering, Security, Sick Bay and more. Take a look at the Ravens web site at this link: www.battlestarraven-bfc-002.com  Click on Ship Departments to see everything the Raven has to offer; you’ll be glad you did!!!!! The choice is entirely up to you. Note: Pesently the site was moved to a new server and it’s under construction, but you can see the departments except for the Airwing.

I am Captain Reamer squadron leader of the Flying Tiger's. I am always looking for a few more Viper pilots to join my group as well.

SO SAY WE ALL! ! ! ! !

If you are interested, Clash Of Civilizations is a good cross over e-book for Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek. It does have adult content though, so not for the kiddies. Good reading! So say we all! :o)  http://www.clashofcivilizations.co/

Hello, Paul, and WELCOME to the Battlestar Fan Club!  It's a great club, and we all hope you really enjoy it.  It's the most fun if everybody participates, so please post and boast on the forums and discussions, (and meet new friends who share a common interest) as well as check out all of the groups you can participate in. (Just look up at the top bar and pick Groups.)  There are battlestars eager for you to sign up, as well as squadrons, you name it, even Pyramid and Cylon stuff!  Lots of the groups are into discussing certain topics, while others are into role playing, so just check it out and find what interests you the most.  Feel free also to start your OWN groups, topics, blogs, discussions, etc.  The more who participate the more fun it is for all. 

Okay, again WELCOME to the Battlestar Fan Club. SO SAY WE ALL!!!!

Welcome to the Raven,Paul!

Since you have Chosen to Fly Raptors, I am providing you with A link to the Raptor Training Manual:


The Qualification Test is in the Back; When you are ready to take the Test, Simply E-Mail your answers to Admiral Miguel Rivera at cag_vf84@yahoo.com; He will grade your Test,When he Can,then get back to You with your Score,Certification Certificate,and Raptor Tail Number(RTN); At this Time,the Admiral is dealing with Real-World Issues, so I would advise Patience.

And, The Raven's Raptor Squadron is known as the SEEKERS; you may officially join the Squadron here: Battlestarfanclub.com/group/the-seekers.

And, if Somewhere down the line, you want to take A crack at A Viper, the Viper Training Manual is Available.
