Dawn Patrol Episode 2019

18 Pilots left Fort Tyler under the stealth protection of anti-solar technology.
While storming the Castle on the Island weaponry we've never encountered was there unleashed upon us. Our anti-solar shields were dissolved in the span of thirty minutes.
For the next few hours we formed chrysalides and consumed fuel molecules in hopes of restoring some of our systems, but ultimately knew we'd be returning to friendly space in full solar radiation.

This is the true story of our survival.

As the fleet prepared for this mission it seemed as though we were going to be short staffed. Pilots were wounded and reeling from the intensity of the Night Watch before it. Even General BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANE Thunder Wolf deemed himself unfit to fly from extreme space madness.
But a young Maggot named Nova came forth to inspire the the troops, and Lord McFuzz charge, Ziqqurat, was eager for the fight. Then, as if called forth from the dust, the legend, not seen in decades, DandelionDax proclaimed "And My Axe!" and soon there were 18 bold and true pilots, prepared to take down the Castle of a great evil on the planet Island.

There was much disarray as Ziqqurat handed out last minute changes orders to various squadrons. Red Squirrel, Pastry Queen and Nova worked hard to mkae Launch happened according to protocol. A last minute third plasma casing replacement on Sprocket's primary thruster threatened to ruin everything, but the airlock was closed long before oxygen depletion alarms went off at the base.



PastryQueen and Excess took the fleet on a circuitous path through the galaxy, in hopes of confusing the enemy. We had orders to disrupt a large intergalactic radio receiver / transmitter, called the PRNAPA. With eXceSs' inside intelligence, we easily jammed the transmitters signal with our own. Then we jammed.

The fleet stopped for scance provision of dried potatoes and canned meats before heading to the edge of the Universe. Just before heading into deep space we dumped apple scented fuel for safety reasons, and headed off over the shelf of the Universe.
Pilots both old and young knew of the terrors of the Castle. All were proud to be a part of taking it over and defending it. None expected the horrible danger they were putting themselves in due to a new weapon in the Castles defense.
