Greetings, Fellow RS Members. ":)

Welcome to this State of the Rebel Squadrons Address for the month of April! Lots of interesting news to cover this time around, and I urge you all to read the information here carefully.

In High Command news, Lieutenant Colonel Ambious stepped down from the Redemption Fleet CO chair and was subsequently replaced by Colonel Kyle Tobarn. Kyle appointed Lieutenant Colonel Ben Jynzer as RF XO. More recently, with great sadness Colonel Daemon Jorval was removed from the Patriot Battle Fleet CO chair; he had gone AWOL about a month ago. The new PBF CO is Commander Slyder McGrath, and we look forward to his announcmenet of a new XO. For more HC information, see the concurrently released High Command Weekly Newsflash.

There's a lot of news from the Office of External Affairs this time. The new Minister of External Affairs, Lieutenant Colonel Los Bennett-Trebonious, with the web-design capabilities of Colonel Mike Bullian, is proud to announce a brand new layout to the OEA webpage. You can view the page at Also, discussions with the NRP are ongoing, and it is hoped some decision can be reached there.

The Uniform Office continues to grow. At this point all initial outstanding uniform requests have been completed, some 70 or so of them. Admiral Dev, Uniform Officer, has hired an assistant, we'd like to welcome Major Kromium to that position. Dev also wishes to let you all know that the Uniform Office is accepting requests for uniform modifications, which you can currently request through the standard form. The Uniform Office is located at An official "modification form" will be available at a later date, so stay tuned.

The Outer Rim War is still going on, and the RS is on a winning streak. We have won the last several systems in a row, and we are continuing to throttle the opposition. The number of matches, however, is dropping off. Less and less of the other clubs are showing up. We're hoping this is just a brief trend that will be reversed, so in the meantime continue to show up and fight for the RS! The ORW is on the innernet, channel #OuterRim at 2 PM EST on Saturdays.

That's all for this week. If you have news that you think should be included in the SotRS, please get it to me and I'll see what I can do! Go now, make the RS an awesome club, continuing doing what you do, because you all do it well. Carry yourselves with dignity and honor. Remember that we are a HIER organization, and act like it. Then our example will shine like a beacon to the other clubs on the internet, and they will not help but be influenced by our brilliance.

Reach for the stars, and you will find that you can often catch them!
