Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 30 March 2018
22 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.112

TBS is 15 minutes. The time is 1415 hours (2:15 PM) Aegis local.

SubCommander Jorahl’s investigation reveals that the satellite captured by Adriatic was a defense system that recorded ships and possible threats.  It was probably left there by the original ship 1,000 years ago. 

RSE Ma’ev apparently dropped out of warp almost on top of the satellite, and that caused their problem.  Ma’ev’s crew remains on Aegis, with no desire to leave.  RSE Antius and RSE Chairo are still in orbit.

70 years ago, A Federation Oberth class ship launched a series of probes in the region that Adriatic investigated.  There is no open record of a Starfleet ship ever exploring that system or region.  Evidence suggests that they knew exactly what they were looking for. How we proceed with that information remains to be seen.

USS Mason, an envoy transport, is on approach to Aegis, possibly bringing representatives from Fleet Command.

Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 6 April 2018
23 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.113

TBS is 24 hours. The time is 1500 hours (3:00 PM) Aegis local.

Envoy carrier, USS Mason, is docked. Her passengers have been quiet, accessing crew information, presumably to prepare for the onslaught that might or might not come.  No one knows their purpose, but many struggle to put aside assuming the worst.  Thoughts of rigorous interrogation have many on edge. Enlisted personnel have been ordered to the Mason for questioning.

Because she is command staff, Commander Coleridge has read in Commander Kital regarding Adriatic’s capture of the satellite and their encounter with the Alien Alliance.

Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 13 April 2018
23 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.113

TBS is 1 hour. The time is 1700 hours (5:00 PM) Aegis local.

USS Mason has downloaded Aegis’ long range scans, which is action beyond their purview.  They are holding and questioning the navigator of the Polo, a standard Aegis transport ship.  The Polo has been given permission to transport three of RSE Ma’ev’s crew who wish to leave, but Polo’s captain is reluctant to leave without their navigator, who just happens to know every square centimeter of space, up to the Alien Alliance border, and perhaps beyond.

Now we wait.

Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 20 April 2018
24 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.114

TBS is 13 hours. The time is 600 hours (6:00 AM) Aegis local.

USS Mason remains docked with the Federation representatives who should be investigating Adriatic’s mission: how they ended up in Alien Alliance space, how they escaped, and why Strike Force Bravo was called to assist.  Instead, we find them accessing files that do not pertain to the case.  We also notice that someone tried but failed to access the device that Adriatic retrieved.

Meanwhile, Annisha Korjata, Alexis McFarland, and Miana are caught entering a secure docking area and are traumatized by the results.

Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 27 April 2018
24 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.114

TBS is 1 hour. The time is 800 hours (8:00 AM) Aegis local.

We become suspicious of the Federation Representatives’ motives regarding interviews with the crew of Adriatic.  Commander Coleridge has reported that personnel interviewed are variously "erratic", "unreliable", "sad", "nearly catatonic", "overly confident", "unreasonable", or just "off".  Department heads report that efficiency is already down on average by about 22%.  Captain Ramson is going to stop the interviews and we are prepared for any retaliation that the Federation Representatives might try.

Mission Brief  and Plot Review| Sky Harbor Aegis | 4 May 2018
24 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.114

TBS is zero.  The time is 900 hours (9:00 AM) Aegis local.

Pieces of the immense puzzle begin to slip into place. 

Thirteen days ago, the Romulan warbird, RSE Ma’ev, was pulled into a time loop.  The ship exploded from AQS overload, but the crew was rescued and brought to Aegis.  Their commander insisted that we save the computer core because they had found the path of the Lore Kings clan: a group who left Vulcan over a thousand years ago to take the path of the ancient ancestors. 

Adriatic was deployed to investigate the time loop Ma’ev encountered. They were drawn into a conduit, and within seconds emerged on the other side of Alien Alliance space.  They engaged Alien Alliance forces on the way back to Federation space.  Strike Force Bravo met them at the border to assist.

Meanwhile,  RSE Antius and RSE Chairo arrived and began a heated argument over custody of  Ma’ev’s crew.  Our queries to RSE Command remain unanswered.

Then USS Mason arrived with representatives from Fleet Command, purpose unknown but ostensibly to investigate the situation.  They began to interview Adriatic’s crew, but soon probed Aegis’ computer core for information regarding Ma’ev’s discovery.

Their true purpose became clear when the Vulcan, V’Mal, emerged as USS Mason’s commanding officer and threatened us with the Stone of Gol, an ancient weapon that focused telepathic energy. When we refused to assist his cause, a cloud like a creeping darkness moved outward from USS Mason.  A security guard is on the deck in the docking area, lifeless.

Aegis is at silent yellow (to prevent panic on the station).  Strike Force Bravo is in docking orbit, on full alert, awaiting orders.  Task Force Aegis was en route, but is now holding position.  Security is in full force, but has withdrawn from Mason’s docking area.

Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 11 May 2018
24 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.114

TBS is 15 minutes. The time is 1015 hours (10:15 AM) Aegis local.

Starfleet, we have a problem.

USS Mason’s mission has been compromised. Their CO, V’Mal, is holding us captive with the Stone of Gol. Unless we can counter its threat of terror we might not survive.  Seventeen security officers who are schooled in mind control will try to overpower V’Mal and snatch the Stone, but their chances of success are low.

Previously on Sky Harbor Aegis:

We suspected that USS Mason’s mission was compromised, not only because of a garbled message from Starfleet Command, but because whoever was in charge of USS Mason was tapping into Aegis’ database and looking for information way beyond their mission parameters.

After some discussion about why we were holding up their mission, V’Mal threatened us with the Stone of Gol.  Apparently, the stone turns emotion into energy that turns back on its origin. For instance, the stone will pick up on someone’s terror, magnify it, and send it back to whoever was terrified, bringing the person to insanity.

Since our discussion with V’Mal, a dark shadow has rolled through the docking area. It caught a security officer off guard.  He dropped to the deck, appearing lifeless.  The shadow then expanded and affected several other security officers, then stopped spreading but continued to affect everything within 20 meters of the ship.

At Present 

The affected personnel are in the medical complex.  V’Mal is holding the navigator of the transport ship, Polo, because they need a good navigator for this area of space.  

Aegis is on lockdown and on Red Alert.  USS Mason is surrounded by a containment field. Seventeen mentally and emotionally strong security officers are ready to advance on the ship to rectify the problem.

Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 18 May 2018
24 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.114

TBS is 15 minutes. The time is 1130 hours (11:30 AM) Aegis local.

While V’Mal threatens Aegis with the Stone of Gol, someone aboard USS Mason contacts Aegis control. The message is garbled, so we switch to Morse Code.  Apparently 3 armed personnel are hiding on board.  They say that they might be able to access Aux Control to take back the Mason.  We formulate a plan.

V'Mal seems to be unaware of or unconcerned with the situation.  Use of the Stone requires a great deal of concentration, so if we can overwhelm V’Mal with distractions, the personnel on USS Mason might be able to reach Aux Control.  If they achieve their goal, the security force standing ready outside USS Mason’s docking port could carry out their assault plan and take back the ship.

Unfortunately, before we can move forward, sensors go haywire.  The psychic field emanating from the Mason begins to fluctuate in both radius and intensity. Several more people near the docking port are struck before the field settles back down.  The field has permanently expanded 10 metres in every direction.
