Rising out of the Ashes of the past, fighting for the Glory of the Empire.

—Motto of Phoenix Company

As the 1st Vast Imperial Stormtrooper Company, Phoenix Company is considered to harbor the best Stormtrooper units in the Vast Empire service. The Company seemingly went by several different names before it's current designation, including Isis Company and, presumably, Dragon Detachment. Phoenix Company is leading the Vast Imperial Military into many campaigns. As of a recent order from the tactical officer, Phoenix Company is now the first ever SCOPE (Special/Conventional OPerations Element) unit in the Vast Empire Army. The current Commander of Phoenix Company is Captain Ayme 'Havock' Katash. The current Adjutant of Phoenix Company is 1st Lieutenant Garryll Gates. Phoenix Company is the 1st Company of Dragon Battalion.

Phoenix Company Policies[edit]

Alright so you recently got into Phoenix Company (where else can you go?) or you’re an older member just peeking in, this is as the title says our policies.

Communication Protocols[edit]

Essentially not fussy as long as you are not abusive, we all know how to behave and if people start complaining you know you’re doing something wrong.

  • First Offense: A warning from the PC
  • Second Offense: A 30,000 IC fine, second warning
  • Third Offense: Demoted


You will become A.W.O.L. (Absent Without Official Leave) if you do one of two things;

  • Not post within two weeks
  • Do not appear for an A.W.O.L. Check

Returning AWOLS

  • Will be placed in an attachment for a period no less than 2 weeks before receiving squad placement.


Leave is a temporary status lasting less than a month, when going on leave the soldier must post on the leave boards and notify their superiors (if trooper notify ASL/SL if ASL/SL notify PA/PC so on forth)


If your intended leave is longer than a month you will be placed in reserves, upon returning membership in the same squad is not guaranteed and you will be placed where you are most needed.

Trials and Tribulations[edit]

So you got punished for something you feel you didn’t deserve, or you deem the punishment to be extremely severe for the offense. You do have the right for a trial, you will need to let your squad leader know, who will in turn let the platoon commander know and they will deem whether it is worth appealing or not.

SCOPE Equipment[edit]

In recent months the role of the Stormtrooper Corps has changed. We have been called upon to fulfill a vast variety of roles beyond our normal operational duties, and as such we must adapt. No longer can the Corps function in previously assigned roles; we must be fluid, willing to go where we are needed and do what must be done.

No longer can we afford to maintain our rigid classifications and labels. We must be willing, at a moment’s notice, to alter our strategy and our tactics to effectively counter an enemy. As such, this Special Directive will create a new operational unit, designed and intended to meet any threat that may arise.

This new unit, designated as a SCOPE team (Special/Conventional OPerations Element), will serve as a prototype for future combat companies. If it is successful, as it is expected to be, then the rest of the Corps will soon follow suit. By implementing these new SCOPE units throughout the Corps, we will achieve operational flexibility beyond anything previously imaginable. And through that flexibility, that fluidity of purpose and design that will allow the SCOPE teams to operate across the galaxy and perform any task that may arise, we will achieve success beyond the average.

It has been decided that Phoenix Company will serve as the very first SCOPE unit, the prototype upon which all the others will be based. As such, all platoons and squads within Phoenix Company are hereby re-designated as Special/Conventional Operations Elements. They will, in time, be equipped with upgraded weapons and armor, and they will receive advanced training on top of their already prestigious combat experience. In short, they will be readied to undertake the most difficult combat operations, both conventional and special in nature. They will be able to work with direct action teams, function within large combat elements, or operate on their own as highly departmentalized special forces squads. They will be the right hand of the Corps, the tip of the sword, both the first and last line of defense for Vast Empire space.

The face of war has changed. No longer can we rely on vast numbers and superior technology to win battles. We must change our tactics, our strategy, the way that we do battle, the way that we wage war, and the SCOPE program is only the beginning.

This is a list of SCOPE squads standard loadout, any further equipment is by request or speciality only. If you want extra equipment check if it (or an equivalent) is listed under a spec. If so troopers with that spec ONLY may use those items, if not put in a request.

SCOPETrooper Armor[edit]

An upgraded version of Stormtrooper Armor that is now being rolled out for elite Stormtrooper units with a view to eventually replace the standard armor. The cost may be prohibitive in this respect, but the materials used for construction are both lighter and stronger than in the standard suit.

Crusader Platoon[edit]

In the Holiday Squad Competition 2008, a fourth NPC unit, named Crusader Platoon, was named as under the command of Phoenix Company. However, Crusader does not show up on the roster and there is no record of it anywhere else on the VE database. The squads in Crusader were said to be:
