The Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Challenge
The Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Challenge

The ISDII Challenge, currently under the command of General Domi as Wing X Commander has a long and proud history within the Emperor's Hammer TIE Corps, with its chapters still being written (with lasers, like a good printer, you see...) to this day. It is traditionally the home of the more free-spirited (spirits-l0vers actually) pilots of the Emperor's Hammer Strike Fleet, with them gathering at the Wing X Cantina on a regular basis to drink, cause overall havoc, destroy Imperial property under any excuse available and have fun telling stories (maybe the only true ones you'll ever heard there) on how many New Republic pilots they killed before breakfast and their silly, almost suicidal flying. But beneath that fun and psychotic exterior is a fierce loyalty to the Challenge and a commitment to excellent unmatched by any other ship in the fleet. As if they would dare!! MWHA-MWHA-MWHA.

Aboard the ISDII Challenge
you will find some of the finest pilots in the Emperor's Hammer (just pray for them not to find you first). Past greats like Kyle Cantor Kessler and Callista, let alone the likes of Katherine C. Flyer, Locke, BubbaX, Daniel Bonini, Anahorn Dempsey, Vertigo... (the list would know no end!) once called this place their home, and now new pilots are writing the newest chapters of this ship. Take the time to find out more than your average roster will tell you. The Emperor's Hammer naturally keeps extensive psychological and historical dossiers on each of its pilots (ok, maybe the psychological ones for 'the Chal' were destroyed some time ago for the sakes of the Galaxy itself), but this is an opportunity for the pilots themselves to say something. Read closely, for the crew of the ISD Challenge comes from all points in the galaxy, and each has a unique story to tell. And a cold one to ask you for while they're at it!

Here you'll also find (eventually :-P) some of the collected works of the ISD Challenge, including fiction, artwork, brief Squadron profiles and the latest news. Much of the artwork depicts the Challenge in action, or are images from other sources that features the Challenge in action in some way, while the fiction is a useful window into our (madness) daily lives and operations. All work belongs to their owners - Please ask permission before you go posting them anywhere. Or either ask for a fancy coffin if you're not up for so much bureaucracy; we don't mind. ^_^

To the dread rattling thunder
Have I given fire and rifted Jove's stout oak
With his own bolt; the strong-based promontory
Have I made shake and by the spurs pluck'd up
The pine and cedar: graves at my command
Have waked their sleepers, oped, and let 'em forth
By my so potent art. But this rough magic
I here abjure.

Shakespeare, The Tempest, 5. 1

Hear the thunder rumble, a sound from miles away
Is it getting nearer, or over for today
A flash of blinding light, electric in the skies
Looking out the window, it really hurts my eyes
After comes the rumble, the clash of cloud on cloud
Feel the floor vibrating, that one was really loud
Still more lightning flashes, it hit's the old oak tree
Lightning in the garden, now that's too close for me.

Dean Thorpe, The Storm Poem
