The Rebel Legion (RL) authorizes the formation of a Fringe Detachment to be named: Docking Bay 94 (DB 94). This Charter serves to define the
guidelines for the operation of this Fringe costume group.

REGULATION 2A – Base Docking Bays
REGULATION 2B – Sects

REGULATION 5B – Group Formation & Ratification

ARTICLE I – MISSION

The mission and purpose of this detachment is five-fold:

(1) To promote Fringe Costumes and their Standards throughout the Rebel Legion.
(2) To maintain and advise the Legion Administrative Council on existing
and future Fringe Costume Standards, including, but not limited to, membership, categories, and Docking Bay 94 Charter revisions.
(3) To provide the Legion Administrative Council with qualified individuals for the approval of all future Fringe costumes, and to provide a qualified pool of candidates to be available for events specifically requesting Fringe.
(4) To promote the creation and continued existence of Docking Bays.
(5) To provide a network for the dissemination of information and resources pertaining to Fringe costuming.

All members of DB 94 are expected to be available as a resource to assist new Fringe costumers towards the completion of their costumes and to advise DB 94 on any changes needed to the standards of all costumes falling under the Detachment.

ARTICLE II – MEMBERSHIP


Docking Bay 94 will include all Rebel Legion members with approved formal Fringe costumes from the Original Trilogy, Prequel Trilogy, and the Expanded Universe. Examples of these costumes include but are not limited to the following: Generic New Republic, Generic Old Republic, Han Solo, Wookie, Mirax and Lando Calrissian. The standards for these costumes are found in the Costuming section of the forum on the Rebel Legion website.

ARTICLE III – OFFICERS

The Command Staff of DB 94 will consist of a Detachment Commanding Officer (DCO) and a Detachment Executive Officer (DXO). The Docking Bay 94 Command Staff may create detachment Membership Officers, as needed, to provide administrative support.
Members of the Legion Administrative Council may not serve as DCO or DXO.

Each Base within the Rebel Legion containing a Docking Bay must have a Command Unit consisting of a Dock Master (DM) and an Assistant Dock Master (ADM). Any Legion member within a Base with an approved Fringe costume may serve as that Base’s DM or ADM. Each Base Dock Master or Assistant Dock Master, as designated, will maintain a current list of members, the official Dock name, and the Dock's logo.

Detachment and Dock Officers shall act as a resource for those seeking information on obtaining and constructing Fringe costumes throughout the Legion and in the Dock’s Base, respectively. Dock officers shall be available to consult with Base Membership Officers (if chosen) on Fringe costume approvals, with support from the Detachment Officers.

The Command Staff, Membership Officers, and Docking Bay Masters of DB 94 will not receive any special powers or duties. They will not be part of The Rebel Command Council, or be given access to the RL Command forums, and do not form Rebel Legion policy. DB 94 Command Staff will be granted “Moderator” status on the Fringe Forums and all sub-forums. The purpose of DB 94 officers is to serve as an advisory body to the Rebel Legion Council. DB 94 Command Staff must forward all major changes to the operations of DB 94, including how it interacts with or represents the Rebel Legion, including changes to this Charter, to the Legion Council before implementation.

ARTICLE IV – ELECTIONS


The DB 94 Commanding Officer will be elected on an annual basis to coincide with yearly Rebel Legion elections that take place in September. The DB 94 Commanding Officer will appoint the DB 94 Executive Officer. Detachment Membership Officers will be chosen by the Command Staff of DB 94 as needed. If the DB 94 Membership Officers or Dock Masters are no longer able to fulfill their duties or have been absent for an extended period of time, their replacements will be chosen by the Command Staff of DB 94 in a timely manner. Dock Masters are elected into office by the members of each Dock on an annual basis to coincide with yearly elections and must be ratified by the Base Commander. The Assistant Dock Masters are appointed by the Base’s Dock Master with approval by the Base CO. Should any issues arise with the abilities of the Dock Master to fulfill their duty they can be removed from their office by their Base Commander, with the consensus of the Dock, and with consultation of DB 94 Executive Staff. In this matter, Delegation command defaults to DB 94 Executive Staff until a suitable replacement candidate is found. Any removals of any Detachment officers must be reported to the Captain of the Guard and Legion Council.

ARTICLE V -ORGANIZATION

DXO

Dock Command and Honorary Fringe

ARTICLE VI – Docks

DB 94 is responsible for the formation and administration of Docks in all Rebel Legion Bases. Dock requirements and regulations under DB 94 are as follows:

• REGULATION 1 – Formation
At least 3 members of a Base with formal Fringe costumes who have agreed on a Dock name are required to formally request Dock status. An application for this purpose can be found in the DB 94 Charter under “Amendment A” or requested from the DB 94 Command Staff.

• REGULATION 2A – Base Dock
Bases shall be limited to one Official Dock and Dock Unit Designation per Base for Fringe costumes. This includes the combination of Prequel and Original Trilogy Fringe.

• REGULATION 2B – Sects
Docks can be split into smaller sections based on geographical location within the Base, subject to the approval of both the Dock Command Unit and the Base Commander. These groupings will remain part of the Base Dock and shall be designated as Sects. Sects are not, in themselves, considered separate Docks. Sects may be dissolved at the discretion of the DB 94 Command Staff if they are seen as disruptive or if they become inactive. Members of Sects that have been dissolved are still members of the Base Dock.

• REGULATION 2C – Sect Administration
Sects may have Sect Masters (SM) assigned at the discretion of the Dock Command Unit. Sect names are to be selected by the Dock with the input of the Fringe who would be assigned to it. Sect names must conform to the same standards and regulations as Dock names (ARTICLE VI/REGULATIONS 4A & 4B).

• REGULATION 3 – Command Units
Each Dock must have a Dock Command Unit consisting of a Dock Master (TM) an Assistant Dock Master (ADM). The Dock Master need not be the Base Commander in order to hold this position. However, the DM needs to be approved by the Base Command Officer in order to take the position. The Base Dock will function as a part of the Base in conjunction with DB 94.

• REGULATION 4A – Dock Units & Crest
Each Unit must have a unique Unit Designation (Dock name) in order to apply for Dock formation. Base Dock names and logos should fit within provable Star Wars nomenclature and graphical elements. The names of any Dock Units (DU) currently in use by existing Base Dock and/or Sect are restricted from further use. A DU will reflect on its members and, as such, should be chosen by the Fringe that make up the Dock. Voting for the Unit Designation will be limited to those Base members who have a Rebel Legion-approved Fringe costume.

Dock logos or crests are not required for Dock formation. However it is recommended that a Dock logo or crest be created as soon as possible once the Dock is formed.



• REGULATION 4B – Nomenclature & Sources
Use of items, names, and symbols from within the Star Wars universe for Unit Designations and Dock logos or crests is allowed and encouraged. Use of items and symbols found in the real world, but not mentioned in the Star Wars universe, can also be considered for Unit Designations and logos or crests, as long as the use of this material does not violate any other trademark or copyright (i.e. Nike’s “Swoosh”, etc.) or ARTICLE VI/REGULATION 4A of the DB 94 Charter.

• REGULATION 4C – Copyrighted Material
Use of images from other copyrighted material (other than LFL material) is prohibited. While LFL gives the Rebel Legion wide latitude in the use of its copyrighted materials, other companies, groups, and organizations do not necessarily do so. Images based on copyrighted images that have been altered sufficiently so as not to be immediately recognizable as the original image may possibly be used, pending approval of the DB 94 Command Staff or Legion Council.

• REGULATION 4D – Dock Membership
DB 94 members must apply to the Dock Command Unit for acceptance as a member of their Base Dock.

• REGULATION 4E – Dock Ratification
DB 94 Command Staff will give final approval for the formation of Docks and for DB 94 crests or logos, after reviewing materials and application as per ARTICLE VI/REGULATIONS 4A, 4B, and 4C.


• REGULATION 5A – Honorary Fringe
DB 94 may also form Legion-wide sub-units known as Honorary Fringe. These units are not part of a particular Base, but rather report directly the DB 94 Command Staff (see ARTICLE V). Honorary Fringe have limited scope that does not infringe upon the missions of DB 94, Base Commands, or the formation of Base Docks.

Honorary Fringe are for Fringe costumers who share an interest in a particular type of Fringe costume to form their own unit.

• REGULATION 5B – Docks Formation & Ratification
DB 94 members wishing to create an Dock shall apply to the DB 94
Command Staff through a written proposal as outlined in AMENDMENT B, Application to Form a DB 94 Dock. The application shall include a Unit Designation, proposed leader (if any), and description of the reason the members wish to form the unit. Upon approval by the DB 94 Command Staff, members may begin to use the Dock designation.

• REGULATION 5C – Dock Administration
Proposed Dock Leaders must be approved by the DB 94 Command Staff before assuming office. Docks do not have seconds-in-command. Dock Leaders serve “at-will” of the DB 94 Command Staff and may be replaced at any time at the DB 94 Command Staff’s discretion. Dock Leaders shall serve as advisers to DB 94 regarding their particular Dock’s costumes. They shall be granted no additional rights or privileges beyond those of a Rebel Legion member.

Did you write this yourself, or did you get this off another detachment charter? To be honest ... they all look alike is some way or another.

Lets go over this section with a fine tooth comb..... so it doesn't get hung up in the council too long.

So far I would say it looks like we are another step closer to getting this phase over!

Here are some of the things worth looking at....


---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Docking Bay 94 will include all Rebel Legion members with approved formal Fringe costumes from the Original Trilogy, Prequel Trilogy, and the Expanded Universe. Examples of these costumes include but are not limited to the following: Generic New Republic, Generic Old Republic, Han Solo, Wookiee, Mirax and Lando Calrissian. The standards for these costumes are found in the Costuming section of the forum on the Rebel Legion website.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Spelling correction of Wookie to Wookiee. (I have made this mistake 1,000's of times)


----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Detachment and Dock Officers shall act as a resource for those seeking information on obtaining and constructing Fringe costumes throughout the Legion and in the Dock’s Base, respectively. Dock officers shall be available to consult with Base Membership Officers (if chosen) on Fringe costume approvals, with support from the Detachment Officers
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Does the BMO positions still exist? If not, we should remove this, and maybe replace it with LCJ/LMO... or something.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
The DB 94 Commanding Officer will be elected on an annual basis to coincide with yearly Rebel Legion elections that take place in September. The DB 94 Commanding Officer will appoint the DB 94 Executive Officer. Detachment Membership Officers will be chosen by the Command Staff of DB 94 as needed. If the DB 94 Membership Officers or Dock Masters are no longer able to fulfill their duties or have been absent for an extended period of time, their replacements will be chosen by the Command Staff of DB 94 in a timely manner.
--------------------------------------------------------------------

How much time is considered extended? I think we are better to mention a time line here... or we can be left without a definitive answer on this... confusion if you will. Maybe we can put a time frame in there of 1 month.... or something like that.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Should any issues arise with the abilities of the Dock Master to fulfill their duty they can be removed from their office by their Base Commander, with the consensus of the Dock, and with consultation of DB 94 Executive Staff. In this matter, Delegation command defaults to DB 94 Executive Staff until a suitable replacement candidate is found. Any removals of any Detachment officers must be reported to the Captain of the Guard and Legion Council before removal.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I think the words before removal should be added. If an officer is going to be removed... shouldn't we need to inform the cog and LC's before this is done? Seems too after the fact for me. I would think it is best to keep the Council in the loop before such moves are made.


2 cents...

In ARTICLE III – OFFICERS -
“The Command Staff, Membership Officers, and Docking Bay Masters of DB 94 will not receive any special powers or duties. They will not be part of The Rebel Command Council, or be given access to the RL Command forums, and do not form Rebel Legion policy. DB 94 Command Staff will be granted “Moderator” status on the Fringe Forums and all sub-forums. The purpose of DB 94 officers is to serve as an advisory body to the Rebel Legion Council. DB 94 Command Staff must forward all major changes to the operations of DB 94, including how it interacts with or represents the Rebel Legion, including changes to this Charter, to the Legion Council before implementation.”


Should that be:
The Command Staff, Membership Officers, and Dock Masters of DB 94 will not receive any special powers or duties. They will not be part of The Rebel Command Council, or be given access to the RL Command forums, and do not form Rebel Legion policy. DB 94 Command Staff will be granted “Moderator” status on the Fringe Forums and all sub-forums. The purpose of DB 94 officers is to serve as an advisory body to the Rebel Legion Council. DB 94 Command Staff must forward all major changes to the operations of DB 94, including how it interacts with or represents the Rebel Legion, including changes to this Charter, to the Legion Council before implementation.

-----------

In ARTICLE IV – ELECTIONS –
“If the DB 94 Membership Officers or Dock Masters are no longer able to fulfill their duties or have been absent for an extended period of time, their replacements will be chosen by the Command Staff of DB 94 in a timely manner.”


If a Dock Master goes missing shouldn’t the Assistant Dock Master take over?


“Should any issues arise with the abilities of the Dock Master to fulfill their duty they can be removed from their office by their Base Commander, with the consensus of the Dock, and with consultation of DB 94 Executive Staff. In this matter, Delegation command defaults to DB 94 Executive Staff until a suitable replacement candidate is found. Any removals of any Detachment officers must be reported to the Captain of the Guard and Legion Council.”

Shouldn’t that be:
Should any issues arise with the abilities of the Dock Master to fulfill their duty they can be removed from their office by their Base Commander, with the consensus of the Dock, and with consultation of DB 94 Executive Staff. In this matter, Dock Command defaults to DB 94 Executive Staff until a suitable replacement candidate is found. Any removals of any Detachment officers must be reported to the Captain of the Guard and Legion Council.

-------

Are Regulation 5A and 5B supposed to be for Honorary Fringe units? It reads as contradictory to the previous regulations if they are for the base Dock’s. And if they are for the Honorary Fringe Units, you’re missing AMENDMENT B.
