Let's do this thing. If it's tomorrow evening, I'll be there. I think, though, that it will be delayed till we get consensus of a place and time to get together.

Time to jump into a plot :)

Important for Squad RP!!!!

Dr. Q'son has set a meeting at Aman for 8:30 PM Ekoo Standard Time on the 21st to discuss 8's idea to capture a Sent!!! I can not be there (that's 2:30 PM HST), but I think it's very important for this squads RP to be there.

Can anyone make it??

I'll do my best to be there Bagger. RainShadow of New Dawn has picked up on it too. Seems to me it's pretty important to the future of UMEC that we keep a visable presence in the community.

Thanks fot pointing this out Kami. I'll be there if at all possible. Mon night 830 est at Aman. I'd thought the idea was dead in the water after little community response at 1st.

Thanks for the link, Kami. If they really *are* looking at possibly capturing a Conflux, I definitely want to be in on it.

A bit about the conference.

Looks like we're looking at a 2 week or less time frame for this event. Dr Q has put out a list for arties that will be used to modify guns so that we will be able to disable or tranquilize a sent for capture. Then we will take some tows loaded with the commods and equipment that the sents seem to be after and parade around the anomoly at Aman Hook till we get a reaction. When the sents come out to play fighters equipt with the new guns will try and get one. Many cover fighters will be needed to take care of any other sents and Unity or anti Tri protesters that attempt to get in the way.

Thanks 8, been looking for any info all morning. I see QUIT has taken the lead on this one. Any work for UMEC or ND? QUIT posted they will be organizing nightly arty hunting parties, 'spose pilots could join that if they want to help QUIT make the quota.

looks like QUIT doing the arty hunting. GOD providing the commods and equip. ND providing the fighters. We provided the idea :D We'll just have to pay attention and make sure we're involved. I think Lyte has put up a thread in squad silo about fishing. havnt seen it yet.

So, what role shall we play in this? Shall it be a fleet of UMEC-piloted tows in the bait convoy? UMEC rangers scouting sectors adjacent to the convoy? UMEC fighters as yet another escort squad? It'd be more impressive to see the majority of the squad acting in the same role.

You know, I like the idea of us in a pack of Rangers scouting the adjacent sectors. Be pretty cool to see a formation of 4 to 6 UMEC Rangers launching from Aman 8)

Ah, but it lends to the 'heroic sacrifice' scene.

"Sighting in The Stith!"
"They're heading for Last Parsec"
"They've sighted me."
"I'll distract them as long as I ca...AAAUUUGG...*static*"

Assumes sentients would initially appear in a sector other than the current position of the convoy. I haven't attended enough 'events' to get a feel for how they would play this kind of situation.

I'm with Bagger on this one :)

In any case.. my combat flying is abysmal and my towing skills are erratic, at best. I am, however, pretty good at keeping my eyes open and my ability to 'bait' flux is legendary (in my own mind, at least).

Cheers
