    We need an oath, a pledge, something you say when you become an officer of the TSN. Something like “I am an officer of the TSN and I serve the people of the USFP…”etc etc. The thing that you refer to when in the heat of battle you need strength, the motto that drives us, the one thing that makes us special. A promise that you live by when serving as an officer. Think “we are the men of the night’s watch” for Game of Thrones or something along those lines. It needs to be about doing your duty, being part of the elite, fighting to protect all citizens and species in the USFP…

    I need help coming up with one. So, give me ideas guys!

    I, a citizen of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, joining the ranks of the Workers’ and Peasants’ Red Army, do hereby take the oath of allegiance and do solemnly vow to be an honest, brave, disciplined and vigilant fighter, to guard strictly all military and State secrets, to obey implicitly all Army regulations and orders of my commanders, commissars and superiors.

    I vow to study the duties of a soldier conscientiously, to safeguard Army and National property in every way possible and to be true to my People, my Soviet Motherland, and the Workers’ and Peasants’ Government to my last breath.

    I am always prepared at the order of the Workers’ and Peasants’ Government to come to the defence of my Motherland – the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics – and, as a fighter of the Workers’ and Peasants’ Red Army, I vow to defend her courageously, skilfully, creditably and honourably, without sparing my blood and my very life to achieve complete victory over the enemy.

    And if through evil intent I break this solemn oath, then let the stern punishment of the Soviet law, and the universal hatred and contempt of the working people, fall upon me.

    Rough Draft:

    I am an officer of the Terran Stellar Navy.

    It is my honor, my privilege, my duty to stand and serve the TSN and the United Space Fairing Planets of which I am both citizen and guardian.

    My oath is never to turn from a right path, never to follow fear, never to enable an injustice.

    I will stand in truth, serve in honor, and fight with courage.

    I am the TSN.

    I do too. Should we move this whole oath development to a new thread, just to make it easier to get to it? We’re on page 5 here already.

    6, actually. And I agree. @Admin, can you do that?
