*** On Board Nebulon-B Frigate -Rebel Vengance- ***
      Location: Enroute to the PBF, Hyperspace
      Coruscant Relative Time: 1530 HRS
      Shipboard Relative Time: 1130 HRS

Slyder sat in one of the officers rooms. He dialed up the RS holonet from the computer at the desk, and called up his log.

             ******** Personal Entry 402910.202.19 ********
Things on the Rebel Vengance have settled down. The crew was supprised to see two Victory-class Star Destroyers jump in-system jsut as we were leaving. Something on this ship is important. Something on this ship is needed by Kunder. Perhaps it is the files Captain Jun'tor found durring the assault. Whatever it is, our techs are having a hard time with the code. It's some sort of splinter from standard imperial...a hybrid of Kunder's. Either way, were still stuck at the light on this one. Possibly a weapon? A shipping list? Or maybee a location? I can only guess at this moment. We should arrive at the fleet in approximately...two hours. Once we get back, well have intelligance look into it. Either way, I think this information will bring us closer to finding the Admiral...
                               ******** End Log ********

Slyder leaned back in his chair. He breifly read over the log one last time, and sent it to his databanks. Something was still amiss. If the ship was so important, why did the support not arrive till it was too late? Was it a feint? Plus, if this WERE a key shipping point, woulnd't the bulk of Kunder's fleet/forces be near to protect the juncture, not jsut a newly constructed ship?
Slyder thought for a few moments. Without a sound, he shut the computer off, leapt form the chair, and bolted out of the door....

-----Patriot Battle Fleet News-----

1) New deadline for 309
Due to the recent events in the United States, myself and the CS were approached by Jake Blues about a mission extension. After a qwuick talk, we decided that this would be for the best. So, 309 has been extended to Sunday October 14th at 11:59 PM EST.

2) Fleetwide State Of Emergency
OK all, just an update on this. At the moment, due to the SoE, no squad in
the PBF has more then 3 empty holes. At the time that all squads have no
more then two open holes, i will remove the SoE and allow requests again.
Hold tight everyone, were getting there :)

3) Scoring System Change
PBF 309 will impliment this new scoring system, so heads up on your final
results, scores will more then likely rise. The main adjustment will be the mission completeion and lasers. Coming for 310, we will have the final version of the converter. This will include these two previous changes, plus all new scores for many craft in the heads up. Once a final version is totally setup and finished, we will make it available on the website.

4) PBF TOD 3 party????
I am looking for some volunteers. Sorry jake fion and spokes, i havn't mentioned this to you yet....if your intereested, lemme know. Anyway, I am looking for volunteeers to organize and end of tour party. Everyone here knows what a Grey-Alpha party is like. I'd like to introduce one into the PBF. Unfortunately, my scheduel is pretty booked right now, so i can't do it myself, hence the volunteers. If interested, let myself and the rest of the CS know.

5) New MrM point policy
After discussing this with my CS, we have come to a unanimous descision that
good naratives should be awarded as much as good flying. Therefore, all MrM
winners starting now will receive a 5 point bonus to their points at the end
of the mission. This will be treated like the MoV winner, they cannot
accumulate more then 5 points per mission. To make things fair, the MrM winner(s)
and the MoV winner will not be one and the same...

-----PBF Mission Standings-----
Due to personal reasons, I have given Fion a weeks liberty from this, so no
updates as of yet.

PBF Top Ace: None
You have the honor of adding the Top Ace medal to your signoff: [<|=(V)=|>]

PBF Top Squad:
PBF Top Wing:

-----PBF Mission Report Medal-----

The mission report medal for the previous month goes to:


You have the honor of adding the MRM medal to your signoff: [*MRM*]

The current Patriot Battle Fleet mission is:


The deadline for the current mission is:

October 14th, 11:59 PM EST

You can download the current mission at:

Send reports with pilot files attached to:
& (to be safe), and
Plus your own squadron

The rules for flying the mission are:

1) You may run this mission as many times as you like but you MUST
get the MISSION COMPLETE message and have a valid *.plt file in order
to be eligible for the PBF Medal of victory. In addition, any score
not accompanied by a pilot file for verification will NOT be counted
by the PBF Command Staff.

2) Run the mission as "defect.xwi" ( this will place it as X-Wing
X-Wing TOD 1 Mission 1 ) so that your stats will be recorded in your
*.plt file.

3) Make a new pilot file to run the mission. If you fail the mission
and wish to run it again make sure to use a new pilot file instead of
re-running it with the same pilot. Any pilot file found to be
"unclean" will result in the score NOT being counted by the PBF
Command Staff.

4) Destroying "Friendly" craft to pad ones stats is strictly
prohibited. *.plt files containing "Rebel" craft kills will be
considered invalid.

5) You should also include a written report with your score laser/ion
shots and hits, missile shots and hits and kill totals in the email.

6) Pilot files will be manually calculated using the official
LucasArts scoring chart for X-wing. Anyone interested in obtaining a
copy of this chart, can email me to do so.

7) No individual scores will be changed after the deadline! If a
report is submitted that is never received at the report address
given above, it will not be added after the deadline. Neither will
the PBF CO accept a late pilot file. The only thing that can be
changed afterwards are errors made by the Command Staff.

8) There is a Fleet Wide competition based on this tour. Every pilot
who sends in a valid report will receive 1 merit point. The pilot
with the best overall score for the mission will be awarded a special
PBF Top Gun medal, along with receiving a 5 point bonus in the PBF
Merit System. In addition participating members from the squadron
with the best overall combined score will receive 5 bonus merit
points in addition to "Top Squadron" bragging rights. Also, the pilot
with the top score for each squadron (excluding the winning squadron,
and Top Gun) will receive 3 bonus PBF merit points. The reporting
members of the Squadrons on 2nd and 3rd places will get 2 bonus PBF
merit points.

*Note* In the even that the Top Pilot for the mission also happens to
be in the Top Squadron he may only receive the 5 bonus Credits for
one or the other. Same thing applies to each squadron Top Pilot and
2nd and 3rd place squadrons.

9) Mail problems including undelivered mail and corrupted *.plt files
are not the responsibility of the PBF command staff. If your *.pltfile
becomes corrupted and you do not include a written accounting,
then your score will be counted as "0".

10) If a pilot retires from the PBF at any time during the course of
an active mission after having submitted a report, his report will no
longer count for his former squadron. He will still receive credit
for running the mission, but will be listed as "Inactive".

11) If a pilot transfers from one PBF squadron to another (such as
attaining a squadron CO position) during the course of an active
mission after having submitted a report, his report will will now
count towards the newfound squadron.
