Mission Summary

13 SCUL Prime pilots made the trek down to the Secret Sector this drizzly early fall evening in celebration of the 11th anniversary of the founding of the Starchaser Division. A healthy turnout arrived at the shiny like-new Fort Union to preflight and prep for the mission ahead. On the launchpad, Civitron delivered a rousing speech about being brave and venturing into space, and then that's exactly what we did.

There were a number of mechanicals right out of the gate, which were all swiftly handled and cleared. Behind the resolute navigation of Nebula, we reembarked on a Starchasers tour-de-forts of sorts, first visiting Fort Jennie Lind, and then the recently decommissioned Fort Jonathan, where a gleaming time capsule was loaded with sentimental items and "buried" for future Starchasers to unearth. After a brief appearance by Ladytron and the Portuguese Village Dogs, and some shoreleave for inter-divisional conversating, we again departed, bidding adieu to Sad Cow for the night, and setting course to perform multiple tight orbits of the old Buttonwood Park launchpad.

We next made landfall at the Cumberland Farms refueling station, where snacks were procured amid a parade of interesting and interested characters while pilots huddled under the slight eaves in hopes of avoiding radiation. Here Civitron christened the newest Starchaser ship, Vox Populi, which was built from random salvaged parts from the scrap pile and had been decorated with slogans and maxims by visitors at a recent community outreach event.

With the radiation intensifying, Nebula made a beeline back toward the fort, with one additional mechanical briefly slowing us down a block away from the landing pad. Civitron conducted closing ceremonies before a growing crowd of civilian onlookers shortly before midnight, with a special bonus knighting of freshly-minted pilot Smae, whom we readily welcome into our hallowed ranks. With all objectives complete, Civitron declared mission success and resolved to do it again next year, same bat time, same bat place.

• Medal of Builder to Civitron for Vox Populi's first mechanical-free mission
• Medal of Diplomacy to Civitron for recruiting Smae and nurturing her to pilothood
• Medal of Patronage to Punchy for wrangling a full clip of pre-mission grenades
• Medal of Valor to Nebula for ferrying us safely through irradiated space on her first mission as navigator
