Mmmm... Ice Cream

Pre-Mission Activities:
An unprecedented number of new recruits (also known as maggots), made this SCUL mission surprizingly well attended, with a grand total of 25 pilots. To accomadate the maggots, Rockstar performed a mass indoctrination before the mission. Hanger A filled with new meat, Rockstar proceeded to explain SCUL's philosophy and rules.

The Mission:

Despite concerns about impending radiation, the fleet launched on schedule. MegaTron navigated the fleet toward the Harvard Constellation by way of the Union Singularity. Shortly after passing through Union, the fleet halted to fix a mechanical problem.
Underway once again, the fleet passed through the Central Singularity to the delight of the inhabitants. Freewheel showed off his balancing skills on USB PaleHorse when we stopped at a red light.
Unfortunately, the strain may have been too much for USB PaleHorse, as the main fore bolt on the forward thruster sheared off upon entering the Harvard Singularity. While most of the fleet stopped for cold space molecules at the Herrell's space cantina, Skunk, NoWay and Moose concentrated on repairing the damaged ship. Smash, meanwhile, demonstrated to others how one would pilot a SCUL craft if one lacked arms.

Finally back underway, SCUL made another circuit of Harvard and then continued back to the MarketBasket Derby arena. Two highly contested rounds (including one where the maggots formed a secret alliance to the amusement of more experienced pilots) resulted in two wins for MoneyShot, making him SCUL's second flying ace.

Following derby, SCUL returned to Ft. Berkeley.
