Results are in folks, so we can have something for the weekend as barbers used to say.

Two runners up:
Buster
Too close for missiles…in fact, it’s too close for guns too! Switching to verbal abuse!
And Kiltrash

But the new holder of the CST is cynicalint.

Pilot was initially flumoxed when he was presented with 5 power levers. Then remembered his time in the Trident 3.
