Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    End-of-Month Reports: April 1999

    Personnel:


    After operating at below-optimal strength for much of the month, Contact Team Ultima will be reinforced by the addition of the following soldiers out of Team Ratio:

    msuitepyon
    I.H.N.I.W.T.R.
    Ivar
    Burning Organ


    Further transfers may occur. The Director of Operations would like to keep a steady rotation of personnel between both teams, to both facilitate both upskilling of 'green' troops with veteran soldiers as well as real field time for combat veterans. Transfer requests from either team may be considered.

    To bring Team Ratio back up to operating strength, at least 2 more soldiers will need to be recruited from the waiting list. More on this follows.

    And finally:

    UFO%20Defense%202009-08-20%2012-50-30-67.jpg

    Happenstance base is operational and will be garrissoned with an armed combat force. This will not be a contact team, but merely a posting for Base Defense.

    Future expansion of the base may one day upgrade this force to a ground interdiction team (as well as interception, science and/or workshop facilities), but for now this is solely listening post and UFO detection facility.

    Recruitment call ups for X-Com soldiers on the wait list will be posted shortly.

    Can the following recruits confirm they are still interested in a combat position:

    Der Waffle Mous
    Zombies Tossed my Salad!
    RabidDeathMoose
    As7
    Rear Admiral Choco
    Gurusloth
    Mighty
    Qonas
    snap
    seta 3000
    ryke
    thorpe


    Respondents will be placed into rotation at Contact Team Ratio.
    Non-respondents will be placed at Happenstance Base Garrison, where, hopefully, nothing will ever happen.

    "I must add that although my team and I specialise in ND-YAG based LASER induced flourescence, the report by one of my finest postgraduate students remains reliable. I "buck the trend" by not stealing a student's work as my own. His findings suggest that the Russians have a lesser regard for foreign policy at this time, outside of the proposed reasons by the X-Com chairman. This is only a suggestion however, and I have asked him to compile a further report on my inquiries.

    Data is scarce for this at present, and my intern is a fool if he will not request the support of "less visible" methods of foreign diplomacy for adequate research.

    Regards,

    UFO-31 Activity Detection and Response Log
    Classified X-6

    On the 1st of May, X-Com radar emplacements in Europe detected an Alien Craft moments before it touched down in the Middle East.

    UFO%20Defense%202009-08-23%2009-32-30-10.jpg

    Team Ratio is currently not at optimal combat strength; new recruits Der Waffle Mous and RabidDeathMoose have an estimated time of arrival upward of 5 hours from present.

    Team Ultima is operating at full strength; reinforcements from Ribaldry Base arrived yesterday and have been placed within the Contact Team. Team Ultima is still awaiting delivery of a replacement Tank/Rocket HWP, however.

    Because of this a 14-man squad Team Ultima was selected to engage Alien presence in the area.

    At this time, X-Com scientists have not yet put serious effort towards the re-utilisation of 'retired' soldiers using alien and/or earth-based technologies. This situation is likely to remain until such time as the existing pool of volunteers is exhausted. If and when the list of ready first-time soldiers is depleted, then we will look into the possibility of second-chance soldiers.

    Dear Director Fishman,

    Pending successful completion of our current mission, I am requesting transfer to the Ribaldry base. I think I have much valuable experience with a variety of hostiles and situations which could benefit some of the newer recruits in Contact Team Ratio. I also have first hand experience in subduing psychically compromised squadmates with non-lethal methods. Furthermore, the less strenuous schedule at Ribaldry would be good for my blood pressure.

    -Tofystedeth

    Addendum: Those knitting hololessons the Doctor recommended have been very helpful.
