  3. MISSION BRIEF: In orbit of Optera IV, Excalibur has finally -- the hope -- developed a way to communicate with the creatures. MEE6 BOT 12-Sep-21 07:13 PM ======== BEGIN SIM ======== ======== BEGIN SIM ======== ======== BEGIN SIM ======== Erich Jaenke 12-Sep-21 07:14 PM Wonder how this will go down? William Chocox 12-Sep-21 07:15 PM William is in the bottom of the ship fixing things. Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:15 PM AS A RECAP ACTION> Following our message, one of the bugs had begun moving towards the ship. CdrMirandaHawthorne 12-Sep-21 07:16 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Waiting pensively in his chair on the bridge to see if their message was understood or if the creature was coming to drain their power once again.:: Maryse Dubois 12-Sep-21 07:16 PM Hopefully well, despite our track record. ::Gets a tea from the replicator.:: Let’s just hope we don't insult anyone. Irene Mincine 12-Sep-21 07:17 PM Val> Val shakes her head at helm. "Bug on a collision course again, Cap. Whatever y'all are doing, it's working." Erich Jaenke 12-Sep-21 07:18 PM Denobulans are not easily offended. Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:18 PM Clark> One of them is transmitting directly towards us... shall I ... put it on screen? Looks over to Jalen with a bemused smirk Let's do audio only. Maryse Dubois 12-Sep-21 07:20 PM Yes but they are not Denobulans. Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:21 PM Clark> Nods Putting them through now. Irene Mincine 12-Sep-21 07:21 PM Irene> She's back to working at all three science consoles at once, manipulating every setting she can find. "Translator matrix is stable." Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:22 PM Opteran> Hello Commander Swan of the Hydrocarbon-Heavy Creature's Ship. I am Gclkkkakakkaakkkkakkkkkkkkkkkaakkkkeeekkkkaakkaakkkkkttttttttkktkktktktkt. Is extremely glad that this is not a visual communication in anyway shape or form William Chocox 12-Sep-21 07:24 PM ((That’s an impressive name.)) Irene Mincine 12-Sep-21 07:24 PM Val> Trying not to laugh. Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:24 PM Clark> Also trying very hard not to laugh William Chocox 12-Sep-21 07:24 PM +Reynolds+ “How’re your repairs going Reynolds?” Irene Mincine 12-Sep-21 07:24 PM Irene> "Translation buffer had problems with that one, sir..." Maryse Dubois 12-Sep-21 07:25 PM ::Monitoring from the lab.:: Well now. Seems like we may have suceeded. CdrMirandaHawthorne 12-Sep-21 07:25 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> Names are sometimes difficult. ::Grunts.:: At least the translator is catching most of it. Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:26 PM Clears his throat Right.. I'll just try not to uh say that one outloud. Uh... +Clicky+ We welcome you. We made contact with two of your species on the planet but were unable to return their communication until now. We have many questions.... perhaps... Clicky> +Excalibur+ Interupts Ah, you are probably wondering such perfect beings as our own have become trapped in such a strange, backwards universe as your own yes? Erich Jaenke 12-Sep-21 07:27 PM Long names.. Irene Mincine 12-Sep-21 07:29 PM Irene> "Solanogen..." CdrMirandaHawthorne 12-Sep-21 07:30 PM Ens Reynolds> +Chocox+ Sir? Ah, things are okay. ::His voice sounded small as he was in one of the JT.:: Just about done in this junction. Will be moving to the next sector, unless there's something else you need done? Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:30 PM Clicky> Continues Opteran> Many brood-cycles ago, our native subspace manifold experienced a prolonged period of turbulence, causing many broodlings to seek refuge by passing through a gash that connected our realm with gooey yolk of this world. For even more brood-cycles, we passed freely through the gash to escape periodic outbreaks of turbulence, Over time, they built tunnels throughout the nugat and yolk. Mouths to Jalen Nugat? Rhan K'hal 12-Sep-21 07:31 PM ((I'm suddenly hungry for a Three Musketeers omelette)) CdrMirandaHawthorne 12-Sep-21 07:32 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::He shook his head and gave Swain a shrug, as flummoxed as the Captain.:: Irene Mincine 12-Sep-21 07:33 PM Irene> "The planet's mantle, I think." She adjusts the translation matrix. Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:33 PM Clicky> continues the plot dump Then the Takers came! Evil creatures! Not dissimilar from Swan and His Hydrocarbons! They built great barrier that keeps us from returning to our place. Then set to trapping us! Not know why. Evil likely. To avoid this and to find way back to our place we evolved new brood-cycles. William Chocox 12-Sep-21 07:34 PM +Reynolds+ “Nope, just checking in.” Erich Jaenke 12-Sep-21 07:34 PM :: Listens :: William Chocox 12-Sep-21 07:35 PM ((I wish I could say this was the weirdest thing we’ve experienced.)) CdrMirandaHawthorne 12-Sep-21 07:35 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> What barrier? ::Looking to Swain.:: Where? Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:35 PM Clicky> Now broodcycle has us lay dormant as young for many years in the nugat and yolk, then we rise, mate, lay brood-hatch and return to stars to seek another such egg-in-sky. None have returned, so we believe none such egg yet found. Takers will come soon as well. They come when we broodhatch. Taking all that in +Clicky+ You said they made a barrier... Irene Mincine 12-Sep-21 07:37 PM Irene> "The shielding towers?" CdrMirandaHawthorne 12-Sep-21 07:38 PM Ens Reynolds> +Chocox+ Thanks, Chief. I think I'm good for now. Any luck on the translation power cycling? Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:38 PM Clicky> Yes. Great Prophylactic! the translation matrix wigs out at a bunch of high pitched clicking sounds that follow Terrible thing. They build smaller ones too to help take us. It surrounds Gash in Yolk, prevents our kind of passing back to Our Place. Irene Mincine 12-Sep-21 07:39 PM Val> Is now covering her face like a comedian breaking on set. Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:40 PM Swallows extremely hard Irene Mincine 12-Sep-21 07:40 PM Irene> "I... well, now you know what their cursing sounds like, Captain." She makes sure to program in alternatives to 'prophylactic'. William Chocox 12-Sep-21 07:40 PM +Reynolds+ “That’s going pretty well. What’s your next project?” Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:41 PM Clicky> Perhaps you help us. Perhaps Captain Swan can break barrier? Clark> Is several shades of Red William Chocox 12-Sep-21 07:42 PM ((Wait…Great Condom?)) Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:42 PM (( howling )) CdrMirandaHawthorne 12-Sep-21 07:42 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> We could help them pierce the barrier, can't we? Smash it to pieces. ::Looking about.:: Irene Mincine 12-Sep-21 07:43 PM Irene> Irene is shaking her head. "I'm sorry, sir, this is... just how it's translating things..." She's not really sorry. She's having a great time. CdrMirandaHawthorne 12-Sep-21 07:43 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> Even if we could poke holes in the barrier, we could probably negate it. Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:43 PM Has somehow managed to not completely fall in the floor laughing, both at the translation and the reaction of the crew We could. I assume it’s the energy field we've been scanning around the planet core. Rex> Far be it for me to be the one to ask this, but wouldn't that be a violation of the Prime Directive? And what will the uh... Takers say? Irene Mincine 12-Sep-21 07:44 PM Val> "They look warp-capable to me." Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:45 PM Bites his lip again +Clicky+ It may be possible, but it could take us sometime to do so... can you give us a moment to discuss? Clicky> Hmm moment-- what is a moment? Such a strange species with such limited understanding of space-time, but yes take 'a moment' the broodhatch continues. My genetic memories say that we should be visited by Takers now, so becareful at taking too many of your 'moments.' Gclkkkakakkaakkkkakkkkkkkkkkkaakkkkeeekkkkaakkaakkkkkttttttttkktkktktktkt out, for now. CdrMirandaHawthorne 12-Sep-21 07:47 PM Ens Reynolds> +Chocox+ Well, there are two sensor nodes down in the next junction and then I have some chip replacements in the next deck up. Irene Mincine 12-Sep-21 07:48 PM Irene> "So we still don't know who the Takers are, but they're coming..." Erich Jaenke 12-Sep-21 07:48 PM Incoming? Great. William Chocox 12-Sep-21 07:48 PM +Reynolds+ “Alright, keep up the good work.” Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:48 PM Rex> Nothing on long-range sensors... but they may have stealth technology. to Jalen Well... that's more than I thought we'd learn. Though Commander Rex is correct to point out the Prime Directive, but they do seem advanced and their natural cycles have already been interfered with, what do you think? Irene Mincine 12-Sep-21 07:52 PM Irene> "I don't think the Prime Directive applies to species from outside of this universe, but that's why I'm not in charge of anything." Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:53 PM The Prime Directive applies to all lifeforms, regardless of their origin, but well its a flexible notion. smirks wryly CdrMirandaHawthorne 12-Sep-21 07:54 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> We're not allowed to get into the middle of a civil war, but this is more than that. They're being attacked and they've asked for assistance on getting home. Cdr Jalen Stanton> I say that we at least see what this barrier is... And if the Takers arrive, perhaps we can negotiate. Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:56 PM I tend to agree. Send a message to the Opterans, we will help them. ACTION> Sensors detect high energy distortion near the Excalibur, moments before a large vessel shimmers into normal space. William Chocox 12-Sep-21 07:58 PM ((Well ain't that swell.)) CdrMirandaHawthorne 12-Sep-21 07:58 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> Speak of the Takers... Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:58 PM Well that’s lovely... Rex> Shall we go to Red Alert? Clark> They're hailing us Irene Mincine 12-Sep-21 07:59 PM Irene> Jumps from the translators to the sensors to see what the hell that is. "Picking up... the same tetryon-based power source as the planet. And the same life forms... I think." Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 07:59 PM Yellow alert, but don't raise shields or power weapons. Gives a look over to Irene then to Jalen Confirm that. Clark, put them through. Irene Mincine 12-Sep-21 08:01 PM Irene> Shakes her head. "I'm having trouble penetrating their shielding, same thing as the planet. I might be able to break through, but it'll take a few minutes." Captain Swain 12-Sep-21 08:01 PM ACTION> The view screen activates showing a tall humanoid woman with long black hair and unique facial ridges along her cheeks and a V shaped tattoo on her forehead. She is wearing battle armor with several awards. Kaldok> “I am Captain Sharama Kaladok, commanding officer of the collection vessel K.E.S. Ko’Falgrin of the Kavian Expeditionary Force,” she says. “This planet belongs to Kavia. You will return any Kavian property on your vessel and withdraw from this system immediately. We will tolerate no interference with our harvest.” MEE6 BOT 12-Sep-21 08:02 PM ======== PAUSE SIM ======== ======== PAUSE SIM ======== ======== PAUSE SIM ========
  4. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 17 September 2021 11 August 2388 - Stardate 2388.224 TBS is 0, the time is 13:00 (1:00 pm) Aegis Local Science and Engineering are watching an unusual phenomenon that could interfere with the creation of a stable warp field. A blue bubble surrounding the station is unevenly distributed and might cut us off from outside contact except subspace communication. The Aegean and its crew has gone to investigate and confirm information from the Dike Slayton. The area has remained stable. Aegean comes close to the Deke Sayton and holds them 0.5 AU from the estimated epicenter. A decision is made to send a torpedo toward the bubble and disrupt the phenomenon. The torpedo is sent toward the bubble’s center. A delayed but massive explosion sends a shock wave that rocks Aegean and sets off alarms. Oops…

If the bubble is only a few AU in radius, ships can still approach and depart. If the bubble approaches a light-year or more in radius, ships would have no way of reaching Aegis. So far a blue bubble that surrounds the station is unevenly distributed. It might encroach on the immediate volume around Aegis, cut us off from any outside contact other than subspace communication, and disrupt equipment that relies on sustained subspace fields. Subspace comms should be unaffected. Commander Coleridge is looking for personnel who will work with him aboard Aegean on-site to supplement the Deke Slayton’s scans and run tests. Aegean has very sophisticated sensors specifically tuned to subspace bands because of its cloak.

Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 3 September 2021 11 August 2388 - Stardate 2388.224 TBS is 24 hours the time is o700 hours (7.00 am) Aegis Local The Ferengi Ambassador Drankum has come to examine the new station. Science and Engineering are watching an unusual phenomenon that is interfering with the creation of a stable warp field. So far a blue bubble that surrounds the station is unevenly distributed. However, it might encroach on the immediate volume around Aegis, cut us off from any outside contact other than subspace communication, and disrupt equipment that relies on sustained subspace fields. If the bubble is only a few AU in radius, ships can still approach and depart. Subspace comms should be unaffected. However, if the bubble approaches a light-year or more in radius, ships would have no way of reaching Aegis. At this moment, Aegis is not in any immediate danger. We will keep Starfleet Command informed.

  19. MISSION BRIEF: Excalibur is still in orbit of Optera IV where the tetryon space cicadas have started a great migration into space. One has taken particular interest in Excalibur and as we left off was approaching us. In order to not attract more, we have lowered our shields. Meanwhile, Science and Medical were working on ways to respond to them, and engineering was investigating the unusual energy field around the planet's core.

Irene Mincine 22-Aug-21 07:16 PM Irene, at the science station, is focused on the creature attached to the hull. "It probably thinks we're the same kind of energy source as the planet's core." Captain Swain 22-Aug-21 07:16 PM Clark> +Engineering+ One of the creatures seems to have attached itself to our warpdrive. William Chocox 22-Aug-21 07:17 PM William blinks at being informed of that. +Bridge+ "Any ideas on how we get it unattached?" Erich Jaenke 22-Aug-21 07:17 PM :: Look over the large medical display :: Tholians are the only species I can see who are remotely close to these creatures.

William Chocox 22-Aug-21 07:19 PM William rolls his eyes. +Bridge+ "Has anyone else on the bridge mentioned anything?" Irene Mincine 22-Aug-21 07:19 PM Val> Val shrugs.

Captain Swain 22-Aug-21 07:21 PM Nods It’s also possible they're simply attracted to the energy signature, like bees to flowers. William Chocox 22-Aug-21 07:22 PM "That's a possibility.

We'd like to try to shut down the engines to see if that's why they're attracted to us. William Chocox 22-Aug-21 07:29 PM +Bridge+ "Acknowledged. We'll step it down to make it not seem like we just cut them off." William directs Reynolds to start winding things down.

CdrMirandaHawthorne 22-Aug-21 07:30 PM Ens Reynolds> ::Nods and begins the process, reducing main power in gradual steps.:: Captain Swain 22-Aug-21 07:30 PM Looks to Irene Would that cause injury to the creature? Irene Mincine 22-Aug-21 07:32 PM Irene> She looks to the captain and thinks for a moment. "I'm not sure. We don't know too much about their biology, but if they're evolved to absorb energy, it shouldn't injure them." Irene Mincine 22-Aug-21 07:33 PM Irene> "I suggest modulating the phasers to match the shield towers we found on the planet. They really don't like those things and it didn't seem to permanently injure them." Captain Swain 22-Aug-21 07:34 PM ACTION> As Reynolds powers down the engines, the creature detaches and moves away. The incoming also turn away and move towards deeper space. Irene Mincine 22-Aug-21 07:35 PM Val> "Perimeter alert deactivated, Cap." Being right made her smile. "They're going back to the swarm." Maryse Dubois 22-Aug-21 07:36 PM ::Studying for a moment.:: Well if Tholians are what we are going to use as a template, it shouldn't be difficult to modulate the universal translator. Captain Swain 22-Aug-21 07:36 PM Sighs in relief You mentioned modulating the phasers, but could we modulate the shields to do the same? Erich Jaenke 22-Aug-21 07:37 PM Unlike a normal language, the computer could take a while for theirs. Captain Swain 22-Aug-21 07:37 PM I'd rather not sit around and wait for them to clear out to have engines. Irene Mincine 22-Aug-21 07:37 PM Irene> "Definitely. The towers down there were roughly equivalent to deflector shields. I'll send the waveform to Engineering, if that's our plan." CdrMirandaHawthorne 22-Aug-21 07:39 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> +Chocox+ That worked, Chief. The aliens are heading elsewhere. We'll let them get a good distance away before starting the engines again. Maryse Dubois 22-Aug-21 07:39 PM True, but it would be a start. Plus we can adjust and adapt the UT as we progress. Captain Swain 22-Aug-21 07:39 PM Nods, then bites his lip Can you compare it to the energy field we detected around the planet core? William Chocox 22-Aug-21 07:42 PM +Stanton+ "Understood Commander, just let us know when you want us to spin them up." Irene Mincine 22-Aug-21 07:42 PM Irene> She brings up their scan data on her station. "Computer, compare the energy pattern of the shield towers and the energy pattern of the emissions of the planet's core." The annoying computer voice replies that they are the same. "...makes sense if they were using them for power... what's the plan, sir?" Looking to Swain expectantly. Captain Swain 22-Aug-21 07:43 PM Clark> lowly to Val One day, we'll get a nice quiet mission where nothing goes wrong. Right? Erich Jaenke 22-Aug-21 07:43 PM They may also respond to pheromones, which we can't translate. Captain Swain 22-Aug-21 07:43 PM Our sensors weren't able to penetrate it, but if we have the frequency, could you adjust sensors to compensate? I'd like to find out what they're shielding. Irene Mincine 22-Aug-21 07:44 PM Val> Chuckles to herself, replying quietly. "What fun would that be?" Captain Swain 22-Aug-21 07:44 PM Clark> That's what holodecks are for. Maryse Dubois 22-Aug-21 07:45 PM Nope. But we'll have to make due with what we have. ::Begins entering some parameters to a UT file.:: Erich Jaenke 22-Aug-21 07:45 PM Who should we have as an ambassador? Irene Mincine 22-Aug-21 07:46 PM Irene> "Yes, I should be able to but with the power of the energy emissions it's hard to tell what's the shield tower and what's the planet's core from here." Maryse Dubois 22-Aug-21 07:47 PM Typically on a starship, that falls upon the captain with the counselor in an advisor role. CdrMirandaHawthorne 22-Aug-21 07:47 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> Do we still have the creatures on our passive scans? Let engineering know as soon as they're a safe distance away. Erich Jaenke 22-Aug-21 07:47 PM I was hoping they liked me, but I don't know if they 'like' in the same manner we do. Captain Swain 22-Aug-21 07:47 PM See what you can do. Maryse Dubois 22-Aug-21 07:48 PM ::Finishes her adjustments.:: There this should do it for now. ::Uploads.:: Irene Mincine 22-Aug-21 07:49 PM Val> "They're moving away at a pretty good clip, Commander. The closest is now at 200,000 kilometers." Captain Swain 22-Aug-21 07:49 PM Looks over to Jalen, for a moment. May I have a word in my ready room, Jalen? Maryse Dubois 22-Aug-21 07:49 PM +Irene+ I've just uploaded a program into the UT to help with communication. It may run a little slow at first, but it will adjust in time. Captain Swain 22-Aug-21 07:49 PM Stands and begins moving towards his RR Maryse Dubois 22-Aug-21 07:49 PM +Irene+ It's based off a Tholian template. CdrMirandaHawthorne 22-Aug-21 07:50 PM Ens Reynolds> So.... ::Twiddling his thumbs as they wait for main power to be turned back on.:: About that resonator... Erich Jaenke 22-Aug-21 07:50 PM We will probably sound like a robot to them. Irene Mincine 22-Aug-21 07:50 PM Irene> She works at her station furiously. "Should have something for you when you're out of there, Captain." CdrMirandaHawthorne 22-Aug-21 07:50 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Nods and rises to follow Swain.:: Maryse Dubois 22-Aug-21 07:50 PM ::Nods:: Hopefully not an angry robot. CdrMirandaHawthorne 22-Aug-21 07:52 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> +Engineering+ Stanton to Chocox. We think the creatures are far enough away. Power up engines again. If they return, then we'll shut down again. Be prepared. Captain Swain 22-Aug-21 07:52 PM Enters the RR and waits for Jalen to enter and the doors to shut behind them Do you think we should stay in orbit and continue to study the creatures or leave now while we're ahead? William Chocox 22-Aug-21 07:52 PM William turns to Reynolds. "Yeah, we might still need it." +Stanton+ "Understood, we're on it." ::starts turning the engines on again." CdrMirandaHawthorne 22-Aug-21 07:53 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::He rubbed the back of his neck and sighed.:: Honestly, my first instinct is to cut and run, but their message worries me. It sounds as though they need some sort of assistance. Irene Mincine 22-Aug-21 07:53 PM Irene> "What is that...?" By now, she's working on two of the science stations at once. "Ops, can you give me any more sensor power?" Captain Swain 22-Aug-21 07:55 PM Nods Agreed. Though it’s possible the Prime Directive could apply. I won't lie though, I am extremely curious about this power signature surroundings the planet's core. I've studied hundreds of M-Class worlds and I've never seen one with these characteristics, but is my curiosity worth the risk to the ship and crew? The creatures went off after we turned off the engines, but what if that doesn't work next time. There are thousands of them. Clark> Nods Done. Erich Jaenke 22-Aug-21 07:56 PM I hope they know we are trying to talk to them. I'd hate to say something wrong. CdrMirandaHawthorne 22-Aug-21 07:56 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> I think we should pursue a means to communicate with them so that we can explain we're not food. If they're headed into deep space, we may not bet the only ones that they run across. Irene Mincine 22-Aug-21 07:57 PM Irene> "Thanks. Something is definitely down there, but I'm not sure what yet..." Captain Swain 22-Aug-21 07:58 PM Agreed. He walked over to the replicator Tea, Oolong Peach, Hot, no sugar. Maryse Dubois 22-Aug-21 07:58 PM Saying hello while accidentally insulting their mother is never a good thing. Captain Swain 22-Aug-21 08:01 PM Very well, let’s figure this out. Looks over Thank you.

The science ship Deke Slayton has arrived to assist with a more detailed investigation. The phenomenon could disrupt equipment that relies on sustained subspace fields. Moving Aegis into subspace might have been a disruptive event. It’s possible that triggered changes within subspace around us. Engineering, science, and the Deke Slayton are working together.
  21. Between Worlds Captain Chirakis Captain d’Ka Captain Je’rit d’Ka, the commanding officer of USS Missouri, is not often seen on Aegis except in Command and Control. He is Sindarin, one of the very few of his species allowed outside Sindar territory. He is also the only one attached to Starfleet Command, and the one who commands the USS Missouri, the USS Iowa, the USS Calgary, and the USS Toronto. Occasionally he appeared with Captain Chirakis, his bond mate, in a private room at Chez Antonio. Sometimes they discussed information in Kirel’s office. Today it was Chez Antonio for a long talk and more than one drink of Romulan ale. “You are extremely focused, Kh’éile*,” Kirel implied as she set her drink aside and leaned on the table. For some reason, Je’rit was completely focused in a way she had never seen. To her, he was obviously thinking, and, as a Sindarin, the color of his pupils changed from lavender, to blue, then to a deep hazel hue as he concentrated. “Extremely focused Kh’éile?” d’Ka asked without turning. “I would say intensely is a more appropriate word. Or perhaps curious, wondering how you went into… then came out of subspace.” He waited for her answer, and when she did not answer he turned to face her. “I have no idea, Je’rit. Have you an answer to the question?” “I do not.” He leaned back with a sigh. “Very well. We do not have an answer, but we do have a theory.” That stopped him cold. “A theory?” “Yes, a theory, but it is not mine.” ________________________ Kh’éile* - The formal word for bond-mate

Science vessels are en route for a more detailed investigation. We do not know if the warp field is caused naturally or artificially. Depending on the intensity of the phenomenon, it could disrupt equipment that relies on sustained subspace fields. If the bubble is only a few AU in radius, it is an inconvenience. Ships can still approach and depart on impulse. The science ship Deke Slayton has arrived and could provide additional readings. Lts Jim Pine and Hank Slym, high level recon security operatives, have been released from medical and will rest in their quarters for a few more days. The four tall, hefty men, tattooed from head to toe and tied up beards had almost killed Pine and Slym, but were now incarcerated and would be there for a very long time… unless Kakra, their leader, tried to release them, and that would never happen.

  27. The 27th Season begins on the 18 th of August in the year 2388 On the 18th of August in the year 1985, Starbase Aegis was born. Then located in the Canar System, it has since undergone two incarnations: Deep Space Aegis, and the present Sky Harbor Aegis. The station and its crew have endured the Dominion, the Klingon Empire, and the Cardassian Wars, plus countless other threats from within and outside the bounds of Federation space and the Joint Allied Powers. As we begin the new season, the date is 10 August 2388.223. Aegis itself is a strategic base that stands watch between known and unknown areas of space. Led by a powerful group whose resources and abilities have yet to be revealed, the Alien Alliance is building bases on asteroids and planetoids within a string of nebulae that allow them stealth passage from their space to that of the Joint Allied Powers. Their aim is to form a cordon around the Joint Allied Powers, take over Aegis, and use it as a staging ground to conquer the Federation and the Joint Allied Powers. The Alien Alliance has yet to take charge of the Joint Allied Powers, though they continue to try. The Joint Allied Powers are always watching... And they will endure.

The Alien Alliance has yet to take charge of the Joint Allied Powers, though they continue to try. The Joint Allied Powers are always watching... And they will endure.
