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

 

Welcome to this, my fourth Weekly Report for my beloved Squadron, the mighty Cyclone, "The Demolition Crew". A loss against the "Squid Boys" and a FL stepping down... not to mention a nearby AWOL of one of our 6 pilots... I'm so happy I think I'll help Lieutenant Colonel Beir on his next onslaught against the Wing X Cantina. But this time we'll use our starfighters to do that I tell you... and in case you don't know about yet: I like to toss Heavy Rockets upon everything. Even to clear a minefield!!...

>:F


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

 

V Green and Red Squadrons from the MC-80b Calamari Cruiser Redemption won the competition against Inferno Squadron and ourselves... D-A-M-N!! Next time please tell me you're going to perform as a Squadron from the M/FRG Phoenix and I'll set the competition against the Chal's protocol droids crew... On the other hand, to Lieutenant Colonel Kadon Beir, Flight Leader of "The Wind of Change", thanks; you did very well!! ;-)

V Your very own CMDR earned 1st!! position for The Emperor's Hammer Strike Fleet on the July XvT Week of War with the only help of that smelly 1337 commanding Praetorian, LC Dirty Vader!! I just can't tell you how I'd like to have some of you helping us there next time. Take [MP/2] and [AMP] IWATS Courses, participating on my IWATS competition at the same time (still 4 IS-GRs for grabs there!!), get some training on our weekly MP competitions and join the NRSD "Errant Venture" for some Rebel Mayhem action!!! LoCs don't fall from the sky but I can always toss 'em to your heads for good MP achievements!! ;-)

V Lieutenant Commander Godo Nurok, former Flight Leader of "The Gale Providers" has stepped down to take Cyclone 3-4 Flight Member position due to heavy RL constraints. I'll try to fill the spot ASAP but for the time being... well... that guy at Flight III Leader's office is not LCM Nurok with a bad case of hirsutism but a damned ewok I dressed as a LCM. We don't want the Flight Office to notice about our little trouble, do we? ;-)

/me looks at the mail addresses where this WSR will be submitted...

D-A-M-N :_______|

 

( Only 3 news entries?!! Some more "Spoilers" are in order here!! Ready for crazy knowledge you are, young paprika-wans? Noooo? I really don't mind... ^_^ )

 

V Lord Vader's task force has finally discovered the location of the Rebel Alliance Headquarters!!! They're on Hoth system. Yes, that funny place where the less cold thing you'll ever find is your mother-in-law very smile. And what they did? Did they by chance put a solid blockade upon them after asking for reinforcements so those Rebs would have stay frozen there forever enjoying temperatures capable of freezing a Grand Admiral Astatine's Executive Order? Nooooo... they assaulted the planet, provided our loyal troops some fancy playing against the wampas and the main Rebellion leaders escaped anyway...

U Last hour from the worst Imperial yellow press ever!! After last week's issue about that rebel Luck SprayBlasted being the son of Lord Darth Vader we've discovered that Princess Leia Organa, former Senator on that Imperial Senate joke that Emperor Palpatine disbanded recently after realizing they were wasting their time drinking corellian beer 24/7 and ruling by bollocks, is the very Luck's sister!! And also Lord Vader's daughter, of course. But... I wonder if that was a surprise after all or just some more nepotism on our own Dark Lord of the Sith's side to appoint the family on excellent spots to play political stuff...

TAnd talking about the traitorous Princess... I've heard the dressing she used on her "tour of duty" (hehe) as Jabba the Hutt's slave is on auction at some Outer Rim's smugglers base. Question is: how much for invoicing the Princess INSIDE?! >:J

ALERT!!! ALERT!!! Rebels idiocy levels reach new horizons! They developed a new starfighter called the "B-Wing". You'll recognize it easely as it's like a bloody flying castle maneuvering with the same subtleness as a badly injured bantha. They armed it with 3 laser cannons, 3 ion cannons, warhead launchers, a dumb suicidal pilot and G0d knows what else... What will be the next? A flying Rancor featuring turbolasers at the jaws and a rocket launcher at the...? Oh, wait... ):-P

 

( Yes, I stopped buying those newspapers from the garbage collectors... but then I decided to ask Lieutenant Colonel Tempest for some. He told me he's a classics-lover and hence his "TIECDpwns!Curseeverythingelse!" attitude. Then he provided me these fresh news above. All complaints should be forwarded to him with my best regards. :-J )


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

 

R Flight III Leader position open for applications!! If any of you is thinking about applying I'll trust him/her if he/she tells me he/she will do well, but ANY of you will need to perform much better under those new levels of responsability. Let's face it: current activity is just not enough to justify a FL position among you. Up to you!! And later don't say I didn't give you the opportunity! :-P

Q Still no news from any of you except LC Beir and LCM Nurok... great! A mail!!! Just a bloody mail!!! Is it so difficult? Did you forget how to write or maybe some traitorous mynock ate your keyboard while flying?... Of flying WHAT??!! Now, please see what happens when this situation keeps the same for time enough to piss me off:

Captain Bjorn Wolfblade, your countdown starts TODAY... 7 more days without any communications and you're AWOL. Sorry.

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.

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)

 

Onboard MC-80b Calamari Cruiser Redemption, its Commodore, Wing Commander and Green and Red CMDRs are having some fun from their recent victory against the ISD Challenge pilots...

<VA Pellaeon> So far guys, I expect you made those pretenders to enjoy the bitter taste of being defeated fairly...

<COL Gunman> Indeed, Sir. We provided them a punishment they'll remember for some time, you'll see. Now they'll think twice before making jokes from their last ship victory against us.

<MAJ Ace Fighter> We had to use almost all our painting resources but the results are splendid... >:)

<COL Stryker> Actually, Sir, you'll be able to see the results immediately. The Challenge has just reported us that Cyclone Squadron is about to be launched on patrol duty. Look, there you have 'em...

Redemption's Commodore turns again to look through the transparisteel viewport at the bridge. There, 8 km. away, is the Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Challenge, Flag Ship of the TIE Corps. Suddenly 6 starfighters appear from its Hangar and start flying towards the Calamari Cruiser. 2 Missile Boats, a TIE Advanced and 3 TIE Defenders... ... all them in... in... PINK!!! Someone has turned the mighty Cyclone Squadron into a pink flying bad joke! In just a minute they are at 2 km. and their shame appears clearly visible for the eyes of the Redemption's flag staff.

<VA Pellaeon> BWHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Gold! Splendid! Good work, guys!! :D

<MAJ Ace Fighter> Thank you, Sir! We even "tunned" their cockpits for them to be enclosed in a pink hell.

<COL Stryker> Priceless I tell you!! They deserve all what comes upon them to down their stupid pride a little.

A young Lieutenant™ (why is always a damned "young LT"?!! Why has a LT to be young? Why has to be a Lieutenant? What were first, the Lieutenants or the young people? More info in further WSRs at this very section, stay tunned!) approaches the Redemption's Wing Commander.

<LT Rookiethemost> Colonel, Sir, we have some strange transmissions from those approaching fighters.

<COL Stryker> ? Forward them to the bridge commlink, Lieutenant.

<COL Gunman> Hehe... now is when they present their apologies...

Seconds later the voice of Commander Zósite Kónstyte Styles, Cyclone CMDR, sounds firmly and fills the bridge:

<CM Zós the NUTS> Cyclone!!! Bring all your guns to bear on THAT Cruiser!!! >:F

<COL Stryker> ... O__0 ...

<VA Pellaeon> CRAP!!!... :________D
