What is your primary goal from Guardian Challenge?
My primary goal is to ensure that the 45 SW maintains their rule as the Guardian Challenge champions! Also, if the primary goal is not possible, my secondary goal is to not be responsible for losing the Guardian Challenge trophy (in fact, this could be considered my sub-primary goal).

Why is the 45th Space Wing going to win again?
Because the 45th Space Wing team is the best in the space launch business, as we proved during our record-breaking 2009 launch year.

Why is a Shark better than a Chickenhawk?
Sharks have more heart. Also, sharks are better swimmers; chickenhawks have poor backstroke form.
