Name: 42nd Reconnaissance Detachment
ID: Order ID
Faction tags: 42|*title*
Naming Convention: Fighters are named for the Egyptian pantheon.
The 42nd Reconnaissance is a squadron composed of pilots re-assigned from their parent units to serve under the command of Meredith Savoy, a young captain grown frustrated with an admiralty perceived to be placing a higher emphasis on turtling and concentration of power than in maintaining vigil over the greater Sirius sector. A frustration that would eventually reveal itself to be shared amongst a large number of junior officers.
The feelings of restlessness came to a head with the edict that the fleets of the Order return to Toledo for review by the authoritative body of the admiralty. With nearly all flights grounded as the debates on structure and objectives raged in the halls of the planet below the mounting discontent grew with a wave of muttering across the ready rooms and chow halls of the orbiting fleet.
Savoy, deciding to put career behind her loathing for a flight line of cooling snub ships, put out the call through what contacts she had in search for a means of circumventing the lockdown. With no small amount of luck the scuttlebutt found its way to the ears of Lt. Simon Young, of the Sanctifierae and aid to the commanding rear admiral Rathebone. Communiques were issued and a meeting arranged.
The outline was simple, cut orders to re-instate a long patrol while the bulk of the fleet continued to maintain itself on Toledo local orbit. A group of pilots outside of the command structure who wouldn't be missed if re-assigned, a group of pilots who wanted to get their hands back in the dirt. The admiral, sympathetic and somewhat snubbed in his role of being left in space to maintain order in the fleet, consented and issued the appropriate orders for the wing to be formed and dispatched.
The purpose of the 42nd is to press the Order presence beyond the confines of Minor and surrounding systems, for purposes of maintaining a vigil over the four houses and border territory in an ongoing search to curb Nomadic influence and infection.
As such the nature of the endeavor encourages stealth, subterfuge and a froggy disposition over an aggressive mentality, which would likely result in a frozen Order corpse being picked over by a half dozen Bounty Hunters a couple hundred AU from the nearest friendly face.

Ships in use:
Notes on obtaining particular craft:
- Spatial: Ensure coordination occurs with the IMG/Colonial Remnant to have one commissioned.
- Osprey: Ensure no shortage of craft is present based on Zoner needs. Coordinate to work orders in amongst regular dry dock repairs and overhauls.
The Civilian Line, while not the issue of the Order by any means, maintains the dual practicality of having parts readily available on Zoner bases as well as carrying an edge for low profile operations.
