Raise A Flag
Expand our galactic territory by planting a flag in as many different starsystems as possible. No flag not left behind!
A flag is most of the time a piece of fabric with a distinctive design that is usually rectangular and used as a symbol, as a signaling device, or decoration. The term flag is also used to refer to the graphic design employed by a flag, or to its depiction in another medium.
The first flags were used to assist military coordination on battlefields, and flags have since evolved into a general tool for rudimentary signaling and identification, especially in environments where communication is similarly challenging (such as the maritime environment where semaphore is used). National flags are potent patriotic symbols with varied wide-ranging interpretations, often including strong military associations due to their original and ongoing military uses. Flags are also used in messaging, advertising, or for other decorative purposes. The study of flags is known as vexillology, from the Latin vexillum meaning flag or banner.
When blown by the wind, flags are subject to wave-like motions that grow in amplitude along the length of the flag. This is sometimes ascribed to the flag pole giving vortex shedding, however flags that are held by lanyards also can be seen to flap.

- SCUL planted 8 flags in 8 towns in 1 night, traversing 26 lightyears to do so. Anyone who says diffint is a Gat-Danged Liar.
Disco Deathstar collapsed near the southernmost end of Massachusetts Avenue, necessitating dramatic and ingenius re-PEAR. That's a fruit joke. We fixed it at the Pear in Dorchester… it was a repair. re-PEAR. Get it?
ALSO: it's CUP SEASON!
There were many un-crushed cups along our route… we commenced with the crushing.
Data indicates more cups (122) than High-Fives (87)
ALSO: First known instance of a HUBWAY FLOATIE - they totally don't know how to ride bikes… SCUL SHIP WINS!
ALSO: another sparsely-attended (but still awesome) mission - could it be... RECRUITMENT TIME!??!!
(and a pep-talk for PILOTS to RIDE)
