Hi Everyone,

At the prompting of 'Hazard Three' we're looking into forming a Corellian Base pilot squadron! Thumbs up
Pilot chickpilot
X-Wing 1 Y wing Awing Bwing Snowspeeder 2

Below is everyone in our base who has an approved Rebel Legion pilot costume.
If you are working on a pilot costume please post and let us know which craft (x-wing, y-wing, naboo, etc) and how far along you are.

We will need to decide on a name and a logo for our squadron.
Please post suggestions for both here in this thread.


Current roster of Corellian pilots: (I've sent PM's to the pilots listed asking for their input)

Please let me know if I've left someone out.

I'm coordinating with RLSC (Rebel Legion Starfighter Command) about this and will keep everyone informed as the process moves along.


Thanks!

Hey Alex,

Can we make this thread 'Sticky' so it stays up top and easy to find for now?

Thanks,

Thanks for taking point on this FallenJedi! I feel awkward discussing a squadron when I'm not a pilot yet. I hope some of our other lurking pilots will give their input. I'm working on an X-wing pilot suit which is complete except for the ejection harness and belt and leg flares. I also still need to figure out the best way to attach that chest box hose to the suit.

Squadron name suggestions. I'd like to see us show our Corellian pride with our squadron name. I think "Bloodstripe Squadron" is pretty obvious. We have a Centerpoint Jedi temple so we could just roll with that theme and go with "Centerpoint Squadron". A generic "Corellian Squadron" kinda says it all too. Or maybe "Maverick Squadron". I like "Bloodstripe Squadron" the best though.

What name ideas do you have?

I am not a pilot yet anyway, but I hope you do not mind me tossing a name in the name box. But here is one of my choices. Sacorian Squadron.

Sacorian Sector was a sector on the edge of the five Corellian planets.

Thanks for the input. Very Happy

Name suggestions so far are:

    Centerpoint Squadron
    Corellian Squadron
    Bloodstripe Squadron
    Sacorian Squadron


Does anyone have the ability or software to draw a logo for us?
Unfortunately, I have neither. Wink
I like the idea of using our Corellian logo as the basis and expanding from there.

Maybe keeping our hatched anchor or the silver to black color fade as a subdued background and add a ship over it. ???
What does everyone think?


PS: Jedimika, if you need any help with your costume just let me know.

Quick update here.
We're making progress on a logo and name.
I hope to have something to share before too long.

Thanks for taking the bull by the horns and sorry for the delayed response. I like Corellian Squadron out of the above choices. What if we just stayed with a color like ANH? Since we have the bloodstripes what about Red squadron? Just a thought. I also like the idea of the Corellian logo superimposed over either a x wing or snowspeeder.

I'm not sure we could use Red Squadron as it's from the movies. I may be reading the charter wrong (I've done it before) but it says..."The names of the following Squadron Unit Designations (SUD) are restricted by virtue of use in the Official Star Wars Universe (i.e. movies, published materials, etc.) or previous use by the Rebel Legion: Wraith, Rogue, any squadron name in official SW media, and every name currently in use by existing Base Squadrons and/or Wing/Flights."

I'm sure someone in command will let us know.

Update:

I've been working with a logo designer and have 2 versions to offer for input. The aurekbesh says: "Never quote us the odds!"

Let me know what you think.

you'll have an X-wing and an A-Wing pilot in your base by Christmas, though I would hope to always be an honorary warhawk... maybe we can be of some help when we get there too Smile

only idea for a name that comes to mind so far is Mynock Squadron

Chad says Slice Hounds and Sand Panthers are native Corellian animals ... lol

Oh well, at least you'll have some solid numbers soon Wink

That's a really nice logo. I like the red.

I didn't think the Red squadron would fly. The logos look good and I too like the red one, but maybe change the yellow border? How about a light gray or silver that is lighter than the one on the interior of the logo? I think the x wing is definitely the ship to go with.

How about one in a million or scruffy squadron? Laughing

Hey guys,

Ok, we made some changes based on the suggestions I received. Please let me know what you think.
The x-wing colors are now Corellian colors and not Red 5.




Thanks,
