This top-secret thread is to be used to record the most dastardly fleets in the galaxy. If your pathetic human brain / pulsing hivemind / amniotic fluid sac (delete as appropriate) encounters a particularly vicious combination of enemy ships lurking in some faraway system, Universal Order Alpha-Gamma-Xul/38b now requires that you log the details here. Admirals of all races can then purchase the data from us (for a small administrative fee) for training purposes.
Under subsection TK-421 of the Order, fleets using particularly interesting tactics or challenges that are ‘just plain fun’ (as our human friends might say) should also be logged.
Reports from the front are required to use the following format or risk being dropped down the nearest black hole by our disgruntled filing droids:
This should be followed by a brief battle report. The content of this is discretionary, but could include details on weapons, fleet composition, etc. The more our captains / sacrificial drones / mindslaves know about what they’re getting into, the less ill-prepared they’ll be (and the more we can charge for the information).
