    Mission Summary

    Objectives achieved.

    While Taco was unable to join us in person, Gritty and Lordmcfuzz made sure to wear a taco suit in his stead. After a short meeting on the launch pad Bane Thunderwolf immediately led us to get some flesh tacos and soylent bean tacos molecules at Luna Taco Party. While orbiting the now even less accessible Powderhouse black hole, Snow seemed to have a plasma casing failure on his primary thruster, so we stopped in the core to both fix the ship and consume our molecules.

    Bane rescued a cute downed ped sign; Leotard rescued a baby tribble trapped under a box. We sincerely hope both remain well.

    We then proceeded through the Somerville System to a portable fuel dump station, which 'tard was happy to recon for us and then proceeded towards the Danehy Cloud deepspace. Pilot Taco comms organized in advance by Skunk, we were advised to Bust The Funk which we performed using the SCUL march.

    Maggot Cosima presented a trivia duel between pilots, other pilots, and Wombat, answers such as "7", "France", "September 26" and "hotness" were presented. Some were right, others wrong, points were awarded and Cosima swolemnly sweared to be a superhero version of herself and was knighted. We welcome our new fellow pilot!

    Cosima's first official act: a plasma casing failure of her primary thruster. Snow repaired.

    While still at Danehy, we decided to Derby, Derby, Derby *and* Derby! Rad Max and Lordmcfuzz won 2 each!

    Pilots then sought out some open space near the Fresh Pond Arena to attempt a new flight formation: Taco. The Taco formation was invented in several different orientations and performed, kind of. It involved an inverted U or was it an n? which then turned into a wall than a regular U then had pilots getting "in" the taco as filling. As with all flight formations it started out ok, and ended a little hmmm. Skunk winks at such foolishness.

    Bane Thunderwolf the led us through the Allston Extension wormhole and took a circuitous route towards the base while once again making another fuel dump at our now designated portable station. Despite this stop we reached the landing pad before our 0000 hours deadline. Red 40 burned up on reentry but we gained PQ so balance was restored.

    Medals: Chic to Lordmctaco and Gritty for tacolicious outfits, Valor to RadMax for excessive increase of skills, Valor to PQ for her technical prowess by riding her ship in warrior 3 position with one foot on the rear saddle of her ship while the other leg was out perpendicular to it. Injury for McFuzz for shedding 1 drop of blood during derby
