Semarak Api -- n. origin. Malay 1. Lit. Flame-of-the-Forest. Tree with small flaming red flowers. 2. May the fire burn on. May the spirit live on...


How was your fortnight, everyone? Here's hoping that this newsletter will be the perfect thing to top it off! Believe me, I try my best. :) We have a fair bit of S:AaB news, including Joel de la Fuente's latest play, as well as an impeccably filled Musings column. So You Want to be a Marine... is somewhat unique this fortnight, and I hope that you'll enjoy its difference.

Unfortunately, Interstellar Chat Radio will not be included in this issue, due to lack of submissions and space constraint. Still, I hope that the rest will be more than enough to make up for it. Continuing Semarak Api's salute to the cast of Space: Above and Beyond, this fortnight we turn our focus to Morgan Weisser, more familiarly known as the obsessed Nathan West.

As always, thank-yous and a few rounds of Chiggy von Rootbeers goes to Peregrine and Albatross, without whom this newsletter would not be possible. I'd also like to say thank you to Kate 'Doc' Duncan and Jennifer 'Octavia' Ray for their invaluable contribution to Semarak Api.

Happy reading.

Semper fi!
Captain Yasmin "Garuda" M.
88th Firebirds Squadron

The newsletter is published every fortnight. For suggestions and contributions to both the newsletter and mailing list e-mail Garuda. I will forward any message intended for the whole squadron to the mailing list. If you want your message to be seen by the whole squadron, state it clearly and I will put it up on the Bulletin Board column as well. I am also responsible for Communications, so e-mail me if you have any other problems, except those concerning your membership in the 88th, as that falls under Peregrine's wing.
