Seekers:

     I would like to change our Raptor number assignments to match our assigned tail numbers, mainly to avoid any confusion that may pop up down the road. If we're all in agreement, I'll get to work on the change.

Aye sir, I'm good with the change.
Sounds good to me.
That is fine with me.

I Would make sure that this will Be OK with your CAG and Raven Actual; They Also Keep Records of Pilots and their Tail Numbers; To make a Major Change in an Already Established ID System Needs Approval and Support from the Top of the Chain of Command.

Colonel, I discussed this a few months ago with the CAG and he seemed OK with it, I just didnt follow through with it at the time. I alse emailed him a squadron status report earlier and one of my topics of discussion was this subject.

Mik Mo

OK, Just making sure; I put Forth the System when the Squadron was Established,Based on Canon; I have No problems with Change.

I had no idea the Raptor #'s had anything to do with BSG Canon Colonel. Being a Viper jock I never noticed any Raptors Tail Numbers (RTN).

I don't see any harm in using the RTN's assigned to our pilots that passed the exam and earned their wings. Afterall, the BFC is all about having fun while honoring the show we all love.

As you know, the CDF tail numbering system works as follows: The 1st two numbers represent the CDF Fleet of the state the pilot resides in. 2nd, the next three numbers represent the sequential amount of pilots in that particular fleet. 3rd and last we come to the two letter which represent the state the pilot resided when they passed their exam and earned their wings.

If that system has anything to do with BSG Canon I would be very suprised. For these reasons I gave Lt Jg "Mik Mo" permission to change the RTN's. Maybe the attack
Raptors could retain the numbering system Colonel Leonidas originally assigned.
Either way he wants to do it is Ok with me.

Good Hunting!!!
SO SAY WE ALL!!!!!

Sir, if I may interject?
Viper tail numbers are generally four digits followed by NC The NC may be specific to a single battlestar, or it may be just the lot of the squad that Galactica had. The four digits may be anything, eg a squad of four vipers may have 2846NC, 2745NC, 9657NC, and 1111NC. Raptors have no specified system of naming like this, and during the Cylon war we have vipers like Niner-Zero-Niner, and in the 2003 show raptors are designated with any number 1-9999. Shown on the show are raptors ranging from 2 to 1029 with no difference between regular and assault types.

That's just my two cents, Sirs.

I totally agree with you Wedge. This is one more example that the CDF numbering system has nothing to do with BSG Canon yet we have accepted the system for the BFC Alliance.

The CDF system was used for convienence and to manage many different fleets, I mean we could break it down as R1123OH to mean Battlestar Group One, Raptor 123 or Viper 123NC, and OH in place of NC because we have different vipers and OH just because that's where I live. R1 or whatever could be replaced with whatever the actual battlestar group is (For Raven it would be more like R(for raven) 2 (Raven's ID) (pilot Number) State for vipers, so R2111OH would be a Viper assigned to the Battlestar Raven with the DRADIS ID of 111 and the tail designation of 111OH

Again,As Long as it's OK with you Reamer,and if Raven Actual has no Objections, Then It's all Good;When I established the System,It was out of Simplicity; and, when I mentioned 'Canon',I recall during the RDM Series,  Raptors were ID'd with A Three-Digit Number,So, I Numbered the Raven Raptors Accordingly(I will be Using that Same System on the Trireme); But, If Change is Warranted,SSWA.

I think the best thing to do is to use the tail numbers we received when we earned our wings. I don't like to nit pik and I totally understand the value of Canon. The CDF's system is good enough for me even if it isn't 100% correct.

The Trireme is your command Leonidas; it's up to you to number your Raptors as you like. Some of your Raptor pilots will undoubtably earn their wings and they may as well have question of this nature.

The CDF has some sort of power over the Fleets even though they be inactive. I wonder what Adm Rivera's opinion would say about the use of tail numbers?
