Ut Reveles, Est Vivere
WELCOME TO INITIATIVE
Ut Reveles, Est Vivere - To Discover, Is to live.
EXPLORATION; DISCOVERY; ARCHIVE:
I am most delighted you have joined the Initiative Wing, Vanguards’ eyes and ears in the Verse. We are the explorers, scouts, scientists, and information specialists within the Vanguard organization. It is our duty to make sure that we successfully gather information, utilize information, and move information to the betterment of our Wing, and for Vanguard as a whole.
Initiative embodies one of the three tenets of Vanguard, Audacious. We must be bold, as we venture where no one has gone before. Exploring a newly discovered system or jump point, analyzing a new discovery or creating a new modification chip in a lab, transferring sensitive data or intercepting transmissions in a known pirate system. Yet we must also show restraint, some deliberateness because a little caution and preparedness shall keep you alive. Many missions will mean no support is nearby, so plan ahead. A failure to plan is a plan to fail.
We may not consistently pull in the big bucks that of Industries or Frontier, or have the glory and action that Security is lauded for but our actions provide each of them with the vital intelligence to be successful at their duties. Like Med-Tech keeping our machines and men in top condition, we are a vital cog in the wheels of Vanguard. Our success is Vanguard success. Scan Far and Discover!
how we Venture into the verse.
EXPLORATION GROUP: (Trailblazers, going forth into the black. The Vanguard tip of the spear)
⦁ Pathfinder Squadron - The initial seekers of the path into new areas, looking for uncharted jump points, systems, objects found in space and static anomalies. These discoveries could be for mining, exploration, science, historical, salvage or any tactical or peaceful direction.
⦁ Scout Squadron - Their specialty is seeking out hostile forces ahead of an exploration flotilla, peaceful convoy or combat fleet. They know getting back with their info is paramount to the unit and the mission.
⦁ Cavalry Squadron - Elite scouts also proficient in combat, force recon and quick strike specialists. Selected from seasoned veterans in the Initiative Wing and used by Initiative to rescue downed exploration pilots and isolated Initiative ships in tricky situations. Once you meet the minimum rank needed, skills, and certifications for Cavalry all are welcome to apply.
DISCOVERY GROUP: (Those that take what the trailblazers find and dig deeper into the science of what is found)
⦁ Planetary Science - All science on a planetary body falls under this team. This would be the animals and plants, the chemical & physical compositions, and the scientific laws. Biologists, Zoologists, Geologists, Meteorologists, Physicists, Chemists, etc.
⦁ Stellar Science - This group focuses on any science related to outside the atmospheric band of planets or moons. Any space anomalies like black holes or dark matter, along with the study of both quantum and jump travel, fall under this squadron.
⦁ Innovation - The innovative quest, or “IQ” squadron, combines scientific research and engineering to improve current, or create new, technology for Vanguard to sell or utilize. It could be new weapons, components, subcomponents or any other useful technology.
ARCHIVE GROUP: (Finding and getting into any and all info and data to analyze; they move it, study it, store it, and find more lurking between the lines)
⦁ Express Squadron - The fast and furious movers of data, this is where the pilots “with the need for speed” are that get the data where it needs to go, fast! For Vanguard organizational needs or for clients needing their data moved with speed and safety.
⦁ Analysis Squadron - Manipulators of data; decrypting an encrypted data core or enemy transmission. Encrypting critical Vanguard data for safekeeping, or just crunching it for understanding, sales and or storage.
⦁ Recon Squadron - Conducting in depth recon’s on targets after the initial discovery for tactical analysis and any additional information needed. They are the Recon Archivists; target assessment analyzers and the Indiana Jones of Vanguard. Part time scholars and part time adventurers.
Viking66A - Wing Commander
I intend to command the best Exploration, Discovery, Archive & Intelligence gathering Wing ever created! To establish a Firm but Fair command climate where every Group Commander down to the lone Pilot of an Aurora LX pushing into the Black feels their input matters. Inflexibility is stagnant, innovation and thinking outside the box is what moved man to fly and to reach for the the stars. Initiative will be the “Tip of the Spear” for Vanguard, thrusting forward, exploring and leading the way for Exploration, Discovery and Archival exploration! But to reach those goals we must train hard. Every leader, pilot, explorer, scientist, engineer and data archivist a master of their field. And with the discovery of a new jump point to an undiscovered system we can earn more fame, fortune and glory than ever imagined! We are the tip of the spear, and we will find it! My end goal is for Initiative to become more than just an Exploration Wing in an Organization. I want Initiative to be a Family of Explorers!
