Hi New Members. So now you've joined the Battlestar Fan Club, and maybe you've expressed an interest in joining a Ship or Chapter or interest Group, like the Raven. May I suggest you consider formally joining a Fan Club sub-group, like "Battlestar Raven - BFC 002" or another Group. They're all on the list of 50+ interest Chapters and Sub-Chapters under "Groups" in the bar below the Club logo, and you can join them there. Joining the "Battlestar Raven - BFC 002" provides internal communications for Raven Chapter Members. Then if you like the Marine Detachment or one of the Squadrons or other Raven Teams you can join those departments within the Raven Group or any other. Any Group you join will show up on your home page and you can link to it there. You will also receive notices on your personal email when anything new is posted on your member Groups. You should only join one Ship, but you can usually join as many interest Groups as you wish. Themes include all versions of Battlestar Galactica and all interests. There are varied subjects in these Groups, such as the UK Costuming Group, Ship Squadrons & Departments, gaming, writing and more. And if you think of a Group we don't have, we can always add another one. It's a very detailed and compartmentalized system, but once you get the hang of it the layout makes sense. The main thing is ask any member questions on anything that interests you. We're glad to help since we're all here for the fun and friendship. Where else can you fly Viper missions or gear up and go hand to gland with some toasters? Enjoy. Regards, Paul "Iceworm" Oakley, Gunnery Sergeant, Battlestar Raven Colonial Marine Detachment.
