Operation
Double Dippin'
On stardate 180616s.2215, SCUL set out on a top-secret mission to swim in two places without getting caught, and to fly in formation while connected by derby ribbon.

Tasks were assigned and ships preflighted, and everyone proceeded to the launchpad where they were met by Acehole visiting with a small pilot-in-waiting. Rad Max stepped up to the role of navigator on her ship Rapscallion and the crew set off following her into the night. Kpafun surprised the crew by joining them soon after launch and flying with them for the first leg of the journey. SCUL made an orbit around the Davis Constellation before taking a pit stop for SNAX. Then they set a course for the Spy Nebula.

As they approached the nebula, SCUL went into stealth mode. Once all ships were parked in orbit, Tard, Antlers, Epsilon, Ravenson, Kongzilla and Johnny Five all took a dip to complete the first objective of the mission. Afterwards, the contingent of Rocket, Epsilon, Eyyou, and Shadowcat burned up while the rest of the crew continued onward to the second objective.

SCUL proceeded along the Minuteman Wormhole and through the Arlington System to arrive at the Upper Mystic Nebula. Here only Wombat and Skunk submerged. The nebula was very peaceful and calm until a bright spotlight from the other side of the nebula rudely illuminated the detachment. Wombat slowly submerged to avoid its glare, and as he did so the sound of an ST engine could be clearly heard blasting off from the vicinity of the spotlight. Time to go. Wombat exited the nebula without time to de-radiate, and the fleet rapidly assembled and readied for departure.

In stealth mode before exiting the nebula, the fleet watched a ST go by without stopping. Once it had passed, everyone emerged into orbit and briefly pretended to be dealing with a mechanical in case another ST might happen by. Once everyone was assembled, the fleet launched with all haste. They flew to the Inner Belt to attempt the final linked formation objective, and thought they had accomplished it, but realized that Johnny Five was missing. He had dropped out by the main turnoff to contend with a mechanical on Compliance, and the fleet retraced their steps and rejoined him there. Many pilots were tired and decided to head back to base without retrying. On the way, an advance squadron of Dead Bride, Threespeed and MsMoon broke off to forage for spare grenades behind Union Square Donuts.

The fleet arrived on the landing pad, but Wombat was dissatisfied to fail the mission without at least trying one more time to make the formation. When Threespeed, MsMoon, and Dead Bride returned, the fleet lined up and created a linked wall and flying-V for mission success. All pilots were awarded a Medal of Black Ops for successful stealth in the Upper Mystic, and Wombat was awarded the Medal of Valor for his great dedication to multiple mission objectives.
