"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."

Oh, my gods! What happened to Hotwire, what took Hotwire's life away from him, and from Us?

Comment by Captain Eric "Hitman" Morelli on October 2, 2020 at 11:20am

Attention Tigers. It is with a very heavy heart that I come to you here this day. Today we say goodbye to one of our own. LT. Justin "Hotwire: James. 

Hotwire has returned back to from which we all come. He has finally found the peace he was searching for so ever vehemently.  Lt. Justin "Hotwire: James has passed. 

Hotwire and I came aboard the Raven roughly the same time. We flew many a mission together and he and I were each others wingman most of the time. Hotwire was one of best pilots in the fleet and was an even better man. Hotwire was the kind of man who had love for all in in his heart. 

I am going to miss you dear friend. The Flying Tigers will not be the same with out you. The Raven will be just a little more empty tonight without you.

When you find yourself gazing to the stars, feeling like you are all alone in this vast plethora, know that Hotwire is that brightest star in the distance smiling upon you.  

Gods Speed my friend. 

Thank you.

Thanks, Mik Mo, I'm still around and watching from a distance and enjoying my retirement, but if the Cylons ever come in force, I'll be ready to launch if need be.

Good work Vampire, saving those Vipers for another battle.

Good to see you, Major Barstow!

Comment by Lt. jg Joseph "Vampire"Vogt on July 18, 2020 at 10:31am

unfortunely my flight status is uncertain due to my knee injury which i am having knee surgery coming up at the end of the month. as for the black objects i found attached to the vipers the objects were explosives that were set to blow when the vipers were launched but they have been safely removed and our vipers are good to go.

Comment by Maj. Roger "Reamer" Barstow on July 18, 2020 at 8:20am

It's good to see you, Vampire. First, it was two against a multitude, and now we're four. Our odds are increasing by leaps and bounds. If the lords of Cobol are on our side, what toaster can be against us? 

Let's set adrift the sabotaged Vipers and set FireFox to auto mode. If the Toasters come in for the kill, the surprise they had for us will be to their destruction!!!
