These stories are of my own making and are not the official Firestorm Universe(or Star Wars universe if I write anything about my Unknown Fleet) and are borrowed without asking.
I know that some of these stories are already in my hobby thread, but I am trying to consolidate them here. From now on all my backstory will be here and all my hobby stuff in my UFO thread.
Let us begin!
Admiral H. T. Standifer was one of the top graduates in the N.T.S.C. naval academy. After his graduation he climbed quickly though the ranks and served with distinction aboard several warships. The influence of his father and Standifer's own tactical skill eventually opened the door for him to become the captain of the N.T.S.C. Fury a tyrant class battleship, and the Flagship of Admiral N. Fredrick of the 316nth. It was during this time that that the Admiral began to see the potential in the young captain and began to mentor Standifer. Standifer was eventually made the Commodore of the 316nth's battlegroup Alpha . He served in several battles against the Zenian League and the Dindrenzi in particular. The Fury , already a famous ship gained an even greater infamy under Standifer, however they never eclipsed the fame of his friend Commodore Lee, whose Missouri had quite the reputation. The 316nth was eventually assigned to the defense of the Cardia system a crucial foothold for the Terran Alliance. The Dindrenzi made several attempts to take Cardia but were soundly beaten back each time. Commodore Standifer took to heart the lessons the Admiral Fredrick had taught him, and led his battlegroup in several pivotal moments in those battles. By this point in time Admiral Fredrick recommended Standifer for an Admirals position in the long leaderless and rebellious 501st. However before he could receive word back from N.T.S.C. command the Dindrenzi attacked again. Only this time it was the dreaded Dark Knight of Dramos led by Admiral Ramus. The battle was fierce, never before had Commodore Standifer faced a foe so relentless as Dark Knights. The initial assault alone nearly crushed the Terrans outright, but the Terrans were able to rally and began to push the Dark Knights back. But it was only a feint. Admiral Ramus himself arrived leading another Battlegroup led by the fearsome dreadnought Black Hammer. Caught under the guns of the newly arrived force the 316nth was decimated. However it wasn't until the Fury was incapacitated that the Terran forces began to retreat, but that was not the end of the Fury. Miraculously Standifer Survived the deadly shrapnel that had killed many of the bridge crew including Admiral Fredrick. Seeing that the battle was moving past them and that the enemy was ignoring them he ordered to gunners to hold their fire and for the engineers to get their trusters going again. The Dark Knights were caught completely of guard when the Fury began attacking their rear like an avenging ghost. Commodore Lee seeing the confusion begin to affect their pursuers rally the remnants of the Terran fleet to the aid of the Fury. The Dark Knights, unable to stop the onslaught were forced to retreat. The Terrans had won, but at a horrible cost. Of the five battleships in the 316nth only two survived, the Fury and Missouri. The N.T.S.C. command followed Admiral Fredrick's recommendation and made Standifer the Admiral of the 501st. Standifer retained command of the Fury and got Commodore Lee and his Missouri transferred with him as well. Standifer must forge the 501st into a fighting force worthy of his mentor's legacy.
