    1 - Apologises if this breaks any rules, I couldn't find anything to the contrary on the boards though!
    2 - To any die-hard rebels :) close your eyes.

    ----

    The Star Vipers are an Imperial Aligned Star Wars group well into their 4th year of operation, we bring a background of years of dedication and a current membership of 200 people into our games and aim to please. Whatever your outlook we have something for you, and we'll do our best to give you years of entertainment, many members have gone on to become real life friends and those who have left still come back for more, why? Because the Empire is Back, and the Legacy Continues.


    "So just what does it mean to be a Star Viper? It means that you are serving amongst the finest in the Imperial Navy. It means that you are living out a part of Star Wars lore, serving on the same side that such heroes as Darth Vader, the Emperor Palpatine, and Grand Admiral Thrawn once served on. Where your every move determines the fate of the galaxy, and adventure is around every turn. Weekly meetings are held, and a newsletter is sent out once a month to keep you informed of fleet activities. Not only that, but also virtually every Star Wars game that LucasArts has created is supported by the Star Vipers, as well as Blizzard Entertainment's classic strategy game StarCraft. We even have divisions for people who don't own any computer games supported by the Star Vipers. And if you don't want to be a pilot, or a Stormtrooper, a Dark Jedi, or a smuggler, then we have room for you. Diplomats, Technicians, and Artists are always welcome. You earn rank and respect like a true officer, always striving to be better. The Empire is truly alive once again, and leading the way are the Star Vipers. The true question is why haven't you joined the Star Vipers yet?"

    - Sector Admiral Shock4


    But what distinguishes us from the run-of-the-mill Star Wars club is the Plotline. The Plotline is, essentially, the great story, a massive tapestry that each member is entwined in the moment they receive their commission. This plotline evolves, and the outcome is supported by the success or failure of our missions, chronicled by our writers, painted by our artists, and finally, published by our webmasters. Every member has a story, a past, and a part. Every member has a chance to be part of the epic Star Wars galaxy, to control events, to shape and change history.

    Our plotline is unique. Based on the Outer Rim, we battle with our old nemesis - the Rebellion, now the New Republic - against a whole landscape of our own design; new enemies, new technologies, new planets. Being a Viper means being part of an Empire that bred such heroes as Grand Admiral Thrawn, Fleet Admiral Pellaeon, and above all, the great Sith Lord, Darth Vader himself. It means living the Star Wars experience, and shaping the history of our side of the galaxy.

    Be the best that you can be, join the Empire. The Legacy Continues.

    The Emperor is alive and well. Here I am with him last year at a "Trek" convention.

    Didn't see any rebels there. It was a glorious day of conquest over the pitiful followers of Paramount.

    Azeem, I am curious. Were any "Trekkies" offended by Star Wars fans showing up in "Star Wars" gear instead of Trek Gear?

    Actually no they didn't. The Klingons hung around us quite a while. We met the Romulans a little later. We got to meet Phil Brown (Uncle Owen).

    The day we went was more of a general sci fi day. The next day was the real Trek day. Its not a bad convention, just too big for the location. But at least it was indoors which helped.

    Glory be to the Emperor and his Mighty 501st Legion.

    This little show is definitely going to last for a while. Have some pop-corn and bring more! When Azeem starts with his Imp stuff, who knows when he eventually stops? ;)

    Oh don't be bitter Rebel, you can join the Mighty 501st too if you would just open your eyes to the truth. The Glorious Emperor has brought peace to everyone. It has been the Rebel terrorists that kill innocent people.

    We are the disciplined troops of the greatest Empire ever known while you are just scoundrels, pirates, and petty criminals.

    Throw down the shackels and remove the blindfold. Join the side of rightousness.

    Ewww.. you're not the funny-type, huh. ;)

    I've learned a new english expression, so I'm gonna use it...OK, time to run a book on this between-imps fight!
    I bet on Azeem. He has a legion, they show off in convention, they have an emperor life-size doll and they worship it, yes, they have to win!

    I bet on Azeem too, after all he is a enemy we know quite good now.

    I bet a sushibeer, and have one while waiting.

    Me think they don't like us.

    Or they're shy.

    Hey! C'mon, we don't bite (most of the time, that is).

    Funny. I was asking myself the very same question. Maybe they're protected species and public is not allowed to see them or to feed them.

    Obviously you do not visit conventions...I can understand you being a lowly Rebel and all.

    its not hard to miss us. you see a trooper at a convention, most likely 501st. You see a trooper at the Denver Celebration, 501st.

    There are over 400 of us now. We are mostly in the US but have Garrisons in Europe, Japan, NZ, and Australia.
