Mission SummaryPre-Mission Activities:
Hanger A, having undergone a complete overhaul thanks to many chopper pilots' sweat, now sports new berthing spaces for ships, an improved tool-storage system, and an ergonomically designed layout. It still does not have the dry-dock space to accommodate some of the newer ships, such as the BRC Suicide Machine, which remained at its moorings for the mission with a mechanical.
SCUL had three new additions to the fleet personnel, who, following the mission were designated Hubcap, LoJack and MonkeyBoy (not to be confused with MonkeyBomb). Rockstar manufactured flags, which greatly aided SCUL navigation techniques.
Following two christenings and one bris, SCUL got underway. The first order of business was delivering some matzah-ball molecules to Megatron who was incapacitated with a space virus. While some pilots spacewalked off their ships to visit Megatron and KillerBee, the rest guarded the fleet and consumed chocolate-covered matzah molecules.
The fleet was found to be in general state of disrepair after the long months in dry-dock, with three mechanicals before the night's derby. Especially prone to mechanical failure was the UAS Snafu, courageously piloted by Sarge.
The fleet proceeded to the Harvard System, where our presence was heartily received. After a slight mechanical,
the mission proceeded through the Central System, also to great approval. Many high fives were received.
Near the Kendall system, the fleet stopped for a break and some fun circling the globe. NoWay experimented piloting USB SkyLab, with a questionable degree of success.
Presently, the fleet moved over to a somewhat sandy parking lot for the first official dogfight derby of the season Skunk won the first round of dogfight derby, followed by an upset where MonkeyBomb garnered his first derby
victory. MonkeyBoy and Maddog won style points for spectacular wipe-outs.
Following derby, the fleet, tired, hungry and increasingly sick, headed back to base with a quick stop at Luna DunkinDonuts for fuel.
