Gunstar Trireme-GSR 0201

Gustar Trireme -GSR 0201 is the first and lead gunstar escort of Battlestar Raven-BFC 002, the Flagship Chapter of Battlestar Galactica Fan Club.  

Mantra of the Trireme from her Commander:

"We are the ancestors of those ancient sailors who went charging ahead into battle! Teeth bared, and ready to take on all who challenged the fleet. "

    " We may not have the magnificence of a Battlestar however, we will SEIZE OUR GLORY by letting the enemy know they will have to get past our GUNS, and our willingness to use them! To those who survive our barrages, they will know better next time!"

Crew of the TRIREME, I have two announcements:

First: Mr. Shawn O'Donnell, one of the founders of the Battlestar Fan Club,has retired and stepped down as President of the BFC;Effective immediately,The Vice President,Admiral Dragonlady,assumes the post of BFC President.

Mr. O'Donnell, We thank you very much for all that you have done in creating A unique forum for the rest of us to further BSG fandom;We will continue to strive to perpetuate the saga of a star world;The tale of war,and survival in the heavens that eventually leads us home,So Say We All!

As a wearer of MANY hats in the real world,Dragonlady is more than capable of facing this challenge;And accordingly, she will have our continued support;The Battlestar Raven is now technically the President's battlestar,and we as first escort have a duty to live up to,So, I expect things to be high and tight as usual.

Second: Today is the Trireme's third anniversary; This journey began in a solemn ceremony at Galacticon IV in seattle; I was offered the challenge,and I accepted,knowing that there would be more challenges; As CAG of the Raven,I led men and women into battle against the cylons,doing everything possible to keep the enemy from our borders;We took our losses,but did our jobs,and today, the colonies are free;Now, in command of A cygnus class gunstar, Our mandate is to have the Raven's back,along with the other escorts of the raven battle group;This we have done,and, I am proud to have the help of A dedicated crew, especially my command staff:

Grace 'Bunny' Nonemaker

Mike 'Faceman' Ursiny

Deane 'Longbow' Geiken

Brian 'Tusker' Allen

I am truly grateful for your work and support;And together,with the raven battlegroup,we will forge ahead to make the future more promising!

Now, another announcement:

To celebrate the trireme's 3rd, I have had T-SHIRTS made up!

These are adult unisex shirts,sizes available small to 3XL, Grey with black printing; I will be selling them for $15 USD(shipping is included);If anybody is interested in one,Contact me through my Facebook page(facebook.com/keithranson.7) or my regular Email(kranson@nc.rr.com); Yes, I will accept paypal,or,we can discuss an alternative form of payment, if need be.

In conclusion, I see the future of the BFC and BSG fandom as very bright,and as the late Richard Hatch always reminds us:
