Are we gonna have cool names for our designated squadrons? Submit em!
As topic.
I'm sure everyone of us will be delegated to various squadrons,
so will there be a designated name given to each one?
Or will it be just free for all?

Conventional Names:
eg: Red Team, Blue Team, Gold Team
eg: Alpha Team, Bravo Team, Delta Team

or something cooler sounding?
eg: Shadow Knights Squadron
eg: Holy Avenger Squadron
eg: Black Widow Squadron

What about you guys, what names do you have in mind?
Come submit em! :D

Some ogre Commander standing in front of his staff:

"Come on guys. We really need to agree we need to branch out a little. We have three Black squads, two Dark squads, six Rouge squads and five Death squads. And before you ask I'm a bit worried about Pink squad too."

You always have to keep your eye out for Pink Squadron. I hear they're good shots.

Hey, a man flies in a group called 'Pink Squadron', you know he ain't afraid of anything.

We could go with Starslip fleet designations, e.g. hyacinth, rose, pansy, daffodil, etc. If not that, I'd like to head up either Mobius Squadron or Razgriz Squadron.

You just need to make sure that if you're fighting at the same time as a big group you don't take there names and cause confusion

I'm a fan of using names of creatures from greek mythology, for instance:

-Centaur
-Cerberus
-Chimera
-Lamia
-Hydra
-Charon
-Orthrus
-Satyr
-Siren
-Arion
-Griffin
-Pegasus
-Phoenix
-Sphinx
-etc...

It also helps that, as you can see, there's quite a few of them. :P

Why not make our squadrons bacon-themed?

Designations are normally made with the idea of clarity behind them. You want there to be no doubt what you are referring to in the case of radio interference or excessive chatter.

Acid, Razor, and Scorpion share no syllables so they are good choices.

But I'd like to be in Damocles

Scorpio was the scorpion in Greek myth that killed Orion, very appropriate name for a squadron.

Well, given the background of Operation Pitchfork, it wouldn't be rare to have a variety of themes when it comes to squadron names...

I just recently became fond of the idea of naming a squadron "Carsomyr", like the +5 holy avenger greatsword in Baldur's Gate two... or other D&D related names like "Drizzt", "Vecna", "Tempus", etc...

For now, and until I get more people, I'll stick with Combined Task Force 152!


It's a penguin... with a gun. I'd run if I were you.

Penguin's make a lot of sense for me...

Think about it...

We call them ships but they are more like planes...

Penguins are called birds but make their living out in the ocean...

Quite fitting for Operation Pitchfork, I might add  :)

I'm thinking Wraith Squadron for Spectre gaming.
or, more fitting....Spectre squadron.
Spectre
An agent of the Citadel office of Special Tactics and Reconnaissance. Although based on the Salarian Special Tactics Group, Spectres are expected to rely on their own resources, rather than being constantly funded by a governing body. However, they usually operate outside the bounds of galactic law.

Rather than being trained, the Citadel Council selects notable soldiers who have proven themselves capable of the strenuous responsibilities of upholding galactic law. Some agents are sympathetic peacekeepers who resolve issues with minimal bloodshed, while others are cold-blooded killers who eliminate problem individuals.

wraith
A once living person, who is made undead without passing through death. A wraith is the only form of undead not made so through animation (the process of giving lifelike qualities to the recently dead).
