< Salute, pilots from Wing X, Wing Commander Angel, Commodore Darklord and last but not least Flight Officer Daniel Bonini >

 

Welcome to this, my third Weekly Report for my beloved Squadron, the mighty Cyclone, "The Demolition Crew". It's funny how I must try to keep finding nonsenses and crazyness of all sorts to fill these; just look at the "Squadron News" section... (*sigh*) Well, at least you'll be safe from the copy-paste thing... I was on LoA almost all the week... far from here, far from any communications access, alone (the g/f doesn't count, she comes with the job xD), and fearing all stuff I would have to sort out on my return... then I return and what I find? Nothing!! Splendid! Thank you all, guys, for providing me so many slackering opportunities. You'll be awarded a fancy Racoons-killing astrolabe in no time! :-D


B
I.) But I thought I'd find some Kansas flying farm here!! (aka. Squadron News)

( As there are no relevant Squadron News this time I'll do my best to fill this section with some apparently useful information I found on some "Dark Sentinel" issues I have here. I hope you'll find them interesting. Behold!! Spoilers are in order! )

 

V Doomed!! We're doomed, guys!! The Death Star, the best and most deadly Imperial weapon ever has been completely destroyed by a bunch of humidity farmers flying 5 X-Wings and a couple of "Wishbones"!!! Don't even ask me how but it seems they managed to toss something into the Reactor Core (maybe just one of those Chalquilla replacements we use to clean the ISD hyper-engines)... FROM THE EXTERNAL PERIMETER several kilometers away!!! O___O The main DS engineer and designer is being re-educated right now...

U Last hour from the worst Imperial yellow press ever!! They say that one of those farmers named Lucky Skyblasted or something alike is no other that Lord Darth Vader's son! Well, at least now we know that all Empire stuff remains within the family!

T The famous pirate and smuggler Han Solo has been frozen in carbonite and invoiced to Jabba the Hutt as a birthday gift. I've heard that the carbonite thing is only a decoy. The main reason for him to become frozen appears to be the last taxes increment to overcome the construction of our beloved Emperor's new toy. Maybe just another of those Imperial teddy bears but given our majesty's hobby of developing everything on super-size it could be as giant as a damned star cluster.

ALERT!!! ALERT!!! Last official reports from Endor system say that those "Ewok-furballs" have become rabid and are decimating one of the best Emperor's legions... HA!! Nothing I wouldn't already know; I work with those little bastards 24/7 at my Secret Destillery and nothing good can come from them. I tried to warn them about! I told them but they wouldn't hear!!!

Last issue!! Mon Mothma wears boxer briefs!! Well... (*ahem*)... maybe not very true but we must keep the Imperial morale high. And if you dare to ask how can we even think that imagining HER in boxer briefs could be moralizing I'll start shooting. This one came from the Intel guys so go away and blame on Praetorian CMDR or something! :-P

 

( Ummm... maybe I should stop buying newspapers from the garbage collectors. But then again: if you want me to have something interesting for you next week DO SOMETHING damnit!! )


E
II.) As if we haven't enough already with all the TC database stuff!! (aka. Squadron Status and On-going Competitions)

 

R To date I STILL have only LC Beir's files for the competition against the "Squid Heads". The competition ends TODAY. Nice work!! Now we'll have to stand a bunch of fried calamaris chuckling on us until the frogs start generating hair unless a last minute miracle shows up in the form of some pilot files for me to BSF. What are you waiting for?!! >:F

Q So you want to play the old "we'll mail you as soon as we have nothing better to do" game, ein? Risky risky... especially for you, Captain Wolfblade. Send me a mail quickly or contact me ASAP by other means or you'll enjoy the same journey as SL Tyrian sooner than you think...

R Yet another weekly Cyclone website update. Same as usual: any complaints e-mailed to me along with the proper bribe and bottle. No refunds.

M Guess the Band (DISCONTINUED)
As you can guess with the stepping down of LC Beir this competition has been discontinued as it involved his WSRs... and there's no place for music on my head beyond that of my ion engines and maybe some celtics and metal to accompany!! :P

L A Mission lasts 15 mins... a "Kill" lasts Forever!!

IV.) Do it or DO IT. Don't even dare to try! (aka. Squadron Standing Orders)

  1. Fly AT LEAST a mission/battle from the Compendium!!! You're a pilot, not a wardrobe, and this is important!
  2. Take an IWATS. And if you actually learn something maybe you're doing miracles too! ;-D
  3. Fly some MP. Plenty of comps. to do it. If only you could feel The Power of the Pwnage Side©®!!
  4. Drink; as a truly Challengite this is a must to perform. If only you could feel The Power of the Daze Side of the Booze©®!!
  5. Participate in some competition if possible. Cyclone is here to obliterate any opposition hence our nickname!
  6. For Flight Leaders: I want your weekly reports on Fridays if possible. It's not mandatory but... it's better to not take risks...

 

Note on order 4: if you can't actually realize this IS NOT a RL way to go you should request transfer to the Sov or something... ¬_¬


V.) Someone flew over the Ewok's Nest (aka. Commander's Corner)

After a few minutes looking through the transparisteel window at LC Beir's office, Commander Styles speaks again trying for his pilots, the mighty Cyclone Squadron, to hear him clearly:

<CM Zós> Ok, guys. So, as I was telling you, it's but very important to perform here... the glory of Cyclone goes beyond any personal consideration or issue. I want you active! I want you ready for everything! None will ever challenge us without feeling afterwards the bitter consequences of their fooliness! That's what I seek. That's what you MUST seek. We have a name, pilots, a name and a banner to be reckoned with and to be proud of. If they come with a highscores competition we'll beat even Bruc and Deimos trying to humiliate our opponents! If they come with a participation-involved competition we'll be not 6 but up to 12 against them cloning ourselves if necessary to show them hell!! If they dare to come with a "flying-tons" competition I'll regain my former insane habits and you'll fly the damned Compendium within 2 months to destroy their hopes!! That's what we MUST seek. That's what we must DO!!! And I know I can count on you, guys. I know none of you will disappoint me, will you?... Excellent! So now you know what to do... Any complaints?... Any suggestions?... No?... Really?... Ok, you know what they say: "those who remain quiet just agree". I wouldn't expect less from you. ^_^

<LC Beir> ... (:-| ...

<CM Zós> And now, Colonel, you can release them. ^_^

<Cyclone Squadron - (Beir & Zós)> Hm@#m¬¬mffjkgj%"$·pllg6hj/(&%·dhtxxhvh!!!!!

Commander Styles turns again to the window while Lieutenant Colonel Beir, Flight Leader of "The Wind of Change", releases the rest of Cyclone Squadron from their bindings and gags... While Cyclone CMDR is still muttering a bunch of pissed off pilots approach him from behind fencing all sorts of medieval fancy weapons... (Palpatine knows where did they get them, maybe some remaining stuff from LCM Holtz's quarters... :-P)

<CM Zós> Hmmm... it's nice to be CMDR and be able to motivate people ready to heed your words. :__D
