The time has come.

If you've not been in the loop, here's the short version: plans are now well underway for the Alabama Rebels to split from the Corellian Base (with Alex's blessing), and form our own base here in Alabama the Beautiful. LAUNCH DATE: November 2008.

As the AL Regional Captain, it's now my duty to help organize this movement, while continuing to recruit new members as we move forward. The first step? Coming up with a new Base name!

After consulting with the majority of the Rebels in the state, the name decided upon was "Tranquility Base" - referring to the original site of the first lunar landing, which Alabama was a major part of. Furthermore, the lunar lander is now housed at the Huntsville Space and Rocket Center, whose address is "One Tranquility Base."

Additionally, with several members of the AL 501st Garrison joining our ranks as Clonetroopers, the name tranquility also refers to the newfound unity and peace amongst the formal Imperial and Rebel costumers in our state.

If there are no objections (or I got anything wrong), we'll move forward with the Tranquility Base name, based on the current number of votes. All known active members (and soon to be members) have been e-mailed or PM'd in advance of this posting, and will have 7 days to reply.

Thanks in advance, and may the Force be with you all ;-)

Good luck. I'm sure some of us that are close to the boarder will make it to a few events in AL as well. The Alabama Garrison is a great bunch of people, so it's great to see the unity.

Who said it had already been submitted? Plans have always been to wait until after elections.

Nice edit on the first post. So you plan on voting in the elections and then leaving a month later? I think it's great that you guys are expanding and forming a new base, I just don't agree with the fact that you have a say in the leadership of a base that you have no intention of being a part of.

Yeah, had to edit the launch date, since it was recommended we wait til after the elections were over. I don't think anyone would want to launch a new base and then have to dive into campaigning... lol

The intent isn't to "vote and leave" - it's simply to not have to deal with elections right off the bat. And for the record, the only member of this base that ever made us feel like we were a part of it is Alex.

Thank you Adam for the nice compliment; however, I am just myself. Even if I was not the Base Commanding Officer at this time I would of treated you guys with the same respect. Let me say for the record I know you guys will leave shortly but remember always if you ever need me even if I do not win call me you have my number and Keep the name of Star Wars alive in Alabama.

I think that getting a formal base in Alabama will not only provide a leverage point to gain new members, but also allow for more direct interaction with the current members now.

With what we are trying to accomplish here in Al a "local" base with local officers will provide a greater sense of unity and approachability.

Thank you Alex for the vote of confidence and support on getting this up and running. I hope to soon be talk with you all from our new base!

No problem,

I will be honest here though parts of me will be sad to see you guys go and I will be honest I will probably show some tears. However, it shows the Rebel Legion is growing and that is a good thing. Our base will never be the same but remember down deep you guys are Corellians and we would be honored to have you help in any events that you can attend.

May the Force Be With you,

CO: Alex "Jedi Orion Knight-Star" McKeel
