New Hope: Episode One
Though Omegamission/Life Day typically marks the end of the official SCUL flying season, the Starchasers remain committed to keeping our skies safe during this galactic winter. That's why we've initiated Operation New Hope, an ongoing outreach mission to defend and protect the citizenry from the icy tendrils of the deadly Worldsuckahbeest while maintaining the fragile balance of the Intergalactic Posifunktitude. In this installment of Operation New Hope, the Starchasers find themselves on a Sunday morning recon mission through the dNB.

The temperatures were low but the often dreaded daystar kept our hearts warm and our spirits high. Our mission: to identify possible locations for the next phase of Operation New Hope but this is first and foremost a humanitarian mission. So, we have assembled a collection of 15 LifePacks, drop pods filled with supplies (clean socks, toiletries, first aid kits, and hand-warmers) to distribute to any civilians and alien refugees who may require assistance.

Along the way, we met many appreciative and smiling faces. My F.E.N.Y.S. went flat in the primary thruster. An easy fix with the Starchasers' adequate Flat Bag; Radiobox 1 dropped signal when Artemis' on-board astromech decided to take a mid-flight snooze. Perhaps the cold was too much for him. (Yes. I said "him"! Everyone knows that all droids are boys and all ships are girls. Duh doi!) Thankfully, Shadowman was ready to carry the chopper groove torch with Radiobox Number Poop; Civitron almost hi-fived an ST but decided against it. "Good morning, officer!" was sufficient; And despite our readiness to assist, we returned with all 15 LifePacks.

Our mission was simple: gather intel about the dNB; commit one act of kindness; and be ready to assist. Two out of three isn't all that bad. Content that we went, we set a course back to Starchasers HQ. Back at the fort, the post-mission debrief provided a clearer plan for the future of our continuing mission. Stay tuned for the next exciting (hopefully) episode of The Starchasers: "Operation New Hope"!
