PBF 6.08 \"Twisted Blade\"

\"I understand, Vice Admiral Spokes. I\'ll do what I can to fill in Xtremegene\'s shoes, I\'m affraid things maybe a wreck for a while though.\" Jay said with a hint of doubt. \"It\'s going to be tough at this point in our campaign.\"

\"Well, we don\'t have much choice do we, Collins? Your new priority is to appoint a new Executive Officer, and get through this campaign alive. Spokes out.\"

Rear Admiral Jay \"Vender\" Collins, was now officially the PBF Commanding Officer.

\"So I see you have plenty of experience, but understand..\" Jay paused, thinking over how well the interview was going for the next XO, \"If you can\'t put up, don\'t stand up. We\'re in the middle of some very tough times.\"

Brigadier General Joshua Hawkins stood up. \"Well then, Sir, you have my answer. It\'s my intention to do what I can for this fleet.\"

\"Very well.\" Jay handed him a datapad. \"These are your new orders, listed by priority. Congratulations.\"

\"Thank you, Sir. I\'ll begin immediately.\" Hawkins saluted, Jay returned it, he spun and walked out.

Jay let a breath of air out. \"Well, that\'s covered.. the road to relief is getting near. Xtreme, wherever you are, we won\'t let you down.\"

Jay circled the command deck of the McGrath, when they came out of hyperspace. \"Now we\'ll just wait for the Windstorm so I can..\"

Helmsman screamed \"Sir! Enemy frigate dead ahead! Scans suggest it to be Imperial. Also picking up two Corvettes on both our flanks!!\"

Jay jumped to a tactical readout. \"Launch our fighters, continue ahead. When the Windstorm gets here, tell them to launch Sabre immediately and attack that frigate! Has it been identified yet?\"

\"Yes Sir, Nebulan-B \'Dark Blade\', Sir.\"

\"Well, the Dark Blade is going to have front row seats to its demise. Tell our fighters to strafe those Corvettes, keep them off our backs. Keep our laser turrets charged and firing.\"

Jay turned and looked at the time. \"Better be on time, Windstorm. Otherwise this will be the shortest command in history..well..besides..death.\"

New Mission!
PBF 6.08, \"Twisted Blade\", is now released for your enjoyment.
Due Date: January 2nd, 2006 (Happy Holidays/New Year!)
This mission can be very easy or very hard, it all depends on your strategy.

This is a long NL, so pay attention. Both the 6.07 and Historical Mission results are below.

PBF CO: There\'s quite a few. Firstly, Xtremegene is stepping down from his position as CO of the PBF. I, RA Jay Collins, am now in Command.

PBF XO: I\'ve also readily appointed BGN Joshua Hawkins to be Executive Officer. He has past experience, and is very eager to be helping the PBF in any way he can.

TO CO/XO: BGN Hawkins is also taking care of the Training Office, processing cadets. Captain Eric Reagan has also stepped up to be the TO XO to assist BGN Hawkins and myself.
