Five rescues were made this test, this is the new highest number of rescues made in one session since breaking four on the week of October the 14th. This brings our total to 26 rescues for Alpha 2, and 41 rescues overall! With only a month to go, only nine more rescues until we crack 50 total, which I think is a very achievable number to cap off 2019! I'm not asking you guys to crash into the moon so we can get some arbitrary number, or am I?
The first rescue of this test was also one of our newest members of the team! While on my usual watch I had spotted @Rok in the 911 channel in the middle of his first unsanctioned refueling mission. After assisting @FU3GO out in the black sea near Madis, we had a bit of discussion and I brought up the organization which he promptly decided to join during the flight back home.
Haunty went out for the 38th rescue to transport @archerer8791 back to their camp.
I myself went out on back to back missions, first to transport @LISPYxLUNA to a far off construct, they then the followed me around as I picked up another player and dropped them off at their mining site to cap rescues 39 and 40 respectively.
@Flamm made their first rescue during the Alioth Aerospace Expo which was held this weekend at Objective Driveyards base on Alioth. @Kasper_DU was supplied with a fair 2000L of fuel.
In the downtime I put in a fair bit of work on the medium hauler over the course of this test. The single person 'bubble' cockpit was replaced with a three-person bridge. Mind you're head since headspace is somewhat limited. This is somewhat by design given more or less the function over form utilitarian feel that I'm starting to go for.
A new crew compartment is situated in-between the bridge and launch bay with seats for a tight group of twenty. Aside from a couple of windows into the launching bay, doors in and out of either the bridge or bay, and some screens which I'll put to future use, nothing all that special here.
Of special note, on Sunday, I had a small stroke of genius. Normally, if the game is having an issue and you end up getting respawned, it's at the north pole of Alioth. It's here where I've positioned what I like to think of as a storm shelter of sorts, in particular, I was thinking of a blizzard given the environment.
Above all this shelter serves as a means for other people to call on us for transport to some location on Alioth. It's one of those 'nice to have that you never want to use' sort of thing, so if you get stuck up in the snowy white, you know who to call!
Finally, I wrapped up work on the website and have pushed it to the public. It's mostly the same thing except for a few additions of various design elements, and some new odds and ends to make things look more stylish.
In addition to a bit of rewording of some other phrases throughout the site, that should about cover everything major. I might push out a few smaller things but those would be largely inconsequential overall.
That's all for now, until next time, fly safe everyone!

We shall go on to the end. We shall fight on Alioth, we shall fight in the woods and fields we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength from the air, we shall defend our ships, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the thickets we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.
