Things Seen and Unseen | Season 25

46 posts in this topic

As the 25th season begins, Aegis finds itself preparing for war. 

With the disappearance of the Breen, freedom has come to those who were held captive as slaves for several generations.  They began to explore new worlds, many of which were in Joint Allied Space. 

Some settled peacefully and were welcomed inside and outside of Joint Allied Space.  Others that preferred dominance over peaceful existence formed the Alien Alliance that used a nebula string to move freely into and out of Joint Allied Space. 

The Federation and Joint Allied Powers soon realized the aliens' thirst for conquest and began to prepare for war. 

As Captain Kelley of USS Iowa explained, "The Alien Alliance is not only establishing itself throughout the nebula string, they’re taking over planetoids and large asteroids in strategic positions and forming a cordon around the Joint Allied Powers.  Intel on their ships and armaments, most of which were stolen, is unbelievable.  If they bring us to war, Kirel?  It’ll make every other war look like a party… and Aegis will be in the center.”

Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 23  August 2019
22 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.143

TBS is 24 hours. The time is 1400 hours (2:00 pm) Aegis Local.

After several days of rest and recuperation, most of the crew has returned to duty.  Science continues to examine their lab results. Medical is completing their records. Engineering and security are keeping a close eye on equipment malfunctions.

The captain has called the crew (everyone) to the conference room to reveal a classified situation regarding the Alien Alliance, its threat to the Joint Allied Powers in general and Aegis in particular.

23 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.144

TBS is 17 hours. The time is 0700 hours (7:00 am) Aegis Local.

At the urging of Starfleet Intelligence, Captain Chirakis has revealed classified information to the command crew.  

According to intelligence reports, The Alien Alliance is taking over planetoids and large asteroids in strategic positions and forming a cordon around the Joint Allied Powers.  They will then assume control of Aegis, use it as a base of operations, and conquer most of the Alpha Quadrant. 

Border Patrol Strike Forces led by USS Missouri,  USS Iowa, USS Toronto, and USS Calgary  take turns supplying Aegis with a physical presence and a formidable defense.  Aegis’s defense grid has undergone extensive upgrading. Aegis Security is planted throughout the station, watching for signs of infiltration.

Our gremlin’s ability to communicate is improving.  He has shown no hostility and seems to be very interested in the varied species on Aegis.

At sim begin, everything is moving smoothly—a welcome change from the last few weeks.

Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 6 September 2019
23 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.144

TBS is 1 hour. The time is 0900 hours (9:00 am) Aegis Local.

For the most part, work on the station has run smoothly.  USS Toronto is in orbit; her task force is in the area.  USS Calgary and task force will arrive soon to take Toronto’s place. 

Gremil is making progress in communication.  His friends have found him and are making the best of it. Unfortunately, their odor leaves quite a bit to be desired.

In an effort to help the station, the Ghost Squad is out and about.  Jake and Billy were trying to find out how the gremlins sneak into the station, and they had a close encounter of the gremlin kind.  The gremlin’s surprise resulted in a skunk-like spray that will stay with them for some time.

24 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.145

TBS is 21 hours. The time is 0700 hours (7:00 am) Aegis Local.

Either engineering has worked diligently to remove the gremlin stench from the air system, or feeding the gremlins chocolate has fixed the problem. Just in case we will keep chocolate available.

Jake and Billy of the Ghost Squad hunted down the rest of the gremlins—six in all. The boys are still scrubbing their bodies from gremlin spray.

At sim begin, Captain Chirakis will be in the conference room, ready to brief Commander Coleridge, Dr Pavilion, Commander Korjata, Commander Cayne, and Lt Commander Tarisa on the most recent discovery regarding the Alien Alliance.

24 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.145

TBS is 5 hours. The time is 1300 hours (1:00 pm) Aegis Local.

The gremlins have been granted asylum on Aegis. As soon as we understand their needs—and install extensive ventilation systems—they will be moved to their own quarters.

Starfleet Security is targeting the planet Drakel'a as an Alien Alliance base of operations.  They also presume that Kran Magkor, Ragor Tal’s assassin and master of torture, is also based there. 

Aegis Ordnance Disposal Unit is sweeping decks 187 to 189 for anything that could pose a danger.

Otherwise, life on the station is fairly normal.

Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 27 September 2019
24 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.145

TBS is 9 hours. The time is 2300 hours (11:00 pm) Aegis Local.

For reasons unknown, Starfleet is sending us 30 more engineers, making a total of 237. We believe that it might have to do with repairs on decks 189 to 187.  Lt Garand is vetting them thoroughly before they come aboard.

Cdr Cayne, SI-6, is working with Lt Garand to bolster security. 

USS Calgary has replaced USS Toronto.  Because of a strange incident with the freighter Megalodon, USS Calgary will remain in close orbit.

TBS is 10 hours. The time is 1000 hours (10:00 am) Aegis Local.

Engineering is still in the process of fixing system malfunctions.  Red alert klaxons have been silenced, doors will now open, lifts are working, communications have been restored, and tactical scanning systems are fully functional.

USS Calgary is in close orbit.  Its task force is farther out, keeping a close watch on the area.

TBS is 6 hours. The time is 1700 hours (5:00 pm) Aegis Local.

Most major systems have been repaired, but minor glitches are another story and, unfortunately, are of the most aggravating kind. Replicators began to duplicate Dr Sandero’s  coffee. Reports of renegade replicators pour in from throughout the station.  The combined power draw causes the lights to flicker momentarily  creates a spike in the fusion generators.  All replicators go offline.  Engineering is now struggling to pinpoint and rectify the problem.

TBS is 16 hours. The time is 1000 hours (10:00 am) Aegis Local.

For the last 35 hours Aegis Engineering, with the assistance of USS Calgary, has been dealing with glitches throughout the station, the last of which are unreliable replicators.  If the problem is not solved soon Aegis will have to begin distribution of distribute emergency supplies.  Work shifts have gone from 4 hours to 2 hours. At sim begin, we hope that Engineering is coming close to fixing the problem.

After 38 hours of dealing with “glitches” on the station, we are exhausted.  Fortunately, the glitches are subsiding and giving us a short rest.  

As promised, 30 Starfleet engineers are about to arrive on orders from Starfleet Command.  At sim begin we will be entering the conference room to consider the circumstances and discuss our options in case the glitches either continue or escalate.

Science and engineering are collaborating to trap the virus that caused glitches throughout the station.
USS Missouri will dock soon, replacing USS Calgary.
Otherwise, everything has been quiet.
Perhaps too quiet.

TBS is 17 hours. The time is 0700 hours (7:00 am) Aegis Local.


In their attempt to disable the virus that has been sending glitches throughout the station, Science and Engineering have been testing several avenues.  How the virus worked its way into Aegis’s systems, what initiated the virus, and its purpose have yet to be determined. Commander Coleridge has suggested that they should turn their attention to prevention instead of cure, to harden non-essential systems against further intrusion.


USS Missouri is in orbit.  Its level 3 hangar bay contains the remnants of the massive, black, delta-winged alien ship with highly advanced technology that had been slipping silently through the nebular string.  Its original complement was replaced with a small group that was killed when USS Missouri and RSE Praetor attacked them in defense of Aegis.

For the moment, Aegis has settled down to a normal routine.  Hopefully it will stay that way for a while.

Science and engineering are working on systems that will prevent a virus from suddenly attacking more crucial areas of the station. 

Captain Chirakis is consulting with Admiral Solokov and Captain Raza of SI-6 regarding the Alien Alliance and the possibility that they are testing the waters.

TBS is 6 hours. The time is 1700 hours (5:00 pm) Aegis Local.

Aegis’ engineering and science continue to work on hardening our defenses against the virus.  Though the virus seems to be dormant, it could emerge again as a more powerful entity.  

USS Missouri engineers continue working on inspecting the massive delta-wing Alien Alliance ship that attacked Aegis space. So far Missouri has broken their code, but the composition of the hull and the configuration of other ship elements have yet to be determined.  Medical personnel are examining the aliens that manned the ship.   Though the ship was originally manned by humanoids, the aliens who manned the ship were non-humanoid, similar to our Gremlins.

Engineering and science are diligently working on locking down the system virus that has been jumping from one area of the station to another.  Security will be in the crosshairs of Captains d’Ka and Chirakis as they smooth out the PsiCorps and undercover security personnel. Otherwise, the station has been fairly quiet.

TBS is 8 hours. The time is 1500 hours (3:00 pm) Aegis Local.

The station is fairly quiet, except for a few minor problems at the bar.  Bravo shift is on duty. Most of Alpha shift has left CnC, but some remained to catch up on work. Captain Chirakis never seems to leave.

Lt Kenyon is working on countermeasures regarding the virus: how it transports from one area to another and how it can be contained. 

After honing the skills of the PsiCorps, Captain d’Ka has returned to Missouri. Security remains on high alert.

Commander Korjata appears confused.  He talks to himself and mutters as he wanders through CnC.  Dr Pavilion has returned to duty. She has taken him for a medical and psychological evaluation. Starfleet Command Engineer Jake Wright was transported to the emergency section of the medical complex to be evaluated for brain injury.

(Unofficial Sim)

TBS is 15 hours. The time is 0700 hours (7:00 am) Aegis Local.

Engineering and science are still dealing with the virus that caused chaos throughout the station.  They aim to harden the station systems against further attacks of that nature.

Cdr Korjata has been released from the medical complex, but will not return to duty until he is cleared.

A Starfleet Command Engineer is in the medical complex after his toolbox landed on his head.  He insists that a “drop dead gorgeous” women distracted him when she kept passing by.  However, no woman was in that area.  Security is checking surveillance footage to verify his claim.

Several of the crew continue to have bad dreams and/or hallucinations, both of which could easily be caused by stress.   Medical is still investigating the problem.  Engineering personnel are checking environmental systems.

No TBS. The time is 1600 hours (4:00 pm) Aegis Local.

Aegis Medical, Science, and Engineering personnel continue to pin down the reason for illness aboard Aegis.  Several ideas are being discussed.  

Strangely enough, the virus seems to be selective.  So far, Tarisa, Miana, Dr Pavilion, Dr Sandero, Lt Kenyon, and most engineers have not succumbed to the infection.

Captain Chirakis is in the medical complex with information that the USS Missouri’s crew has also experienced random illness.  At the moment, the captain’s concern goes beyond the illness, believing that it might be a planned attack by the Alien Alliance. However, if that were the case, all personnel on the station would be infected, and the virus would strike simultaneously without warning.

TBS is 13 hours. The time is 0700 hours (7:00 am) Aegis Local.

Medical, Engineering, and Science are still on the trail of the illness.  They believe that an element in caffeine might be the trigger for extreme fatigue, nightmares, and hallucinations.  As a precaution, Captain Chirakis has banned coffee and anything else containing caffeine in CnC.  Aboard USS Missouri,  personnel are experiencing allergic reactions, source unknown.

Admiral Mulligan has informed Captain Chirakis that Ragor Tal, a powerful and merciless leader, is now connected to the Alien Alliance.

TBS is 2 hours. The time is 1000 hours (10:00 am) Aegis Local.

Science and medical are on the verge of discovering the cause of illness on Aegis.  It seems to target certain individuals and/or species, cause unknown.

USS Missouri’s personnel have been reassembling the Alien Alliance stealth ship that tried to attack Aegis.  Two things have been found beneath the rubble: the caged corporeal remains of a small species similar to the gremlins, and a metal box that appears to be a ship control mechanism.  None of the Alien Alliance were aboard.

TBS is 7 hours. The time is 1800 hours (6:00 pm) Aegis Local.

Science and Medical are on the verge of discovering the cause of illness that seems to target certain individuals and/or species.  An immediate concern is the possibility that whatever is in the atmosphere could change genetic markers.  Science is working on several things:

  • Testing to judge the natural purpose of the illness. 
  • Is there a possibility of designed intent, or is it a side effect of something else?  
  •  Will new atmospheric scrubbers from the shipyard help?
  •  Are the infected personnel safe?
  • Are the gremlins part of the problem?
  • Is stress from overwork causing or exacerbating the problem?

Instead of hallucinations, USS Missouri personnel are fighting off allergies from the gremlin-like creatures' corporeal remains.  As a precaution, they have quarantined several crew, and are in the process of obtaining new atmospheric scrubbers from the shipyards.

TBS is 12 hours. The time is 0700 hours (7:00 am) Aegis Local.

Aegis and USS Missouri continue to pin down the cause of strange dreams, hallucinations, and allergies.  Not everyone has been affected.  Some personnel seem to have been passed over and/or no longer have a problem.  Others continue to fight it off.  

A study that was passed on to security pointed to the gremlins’ VIP area as a possible origin, though that has yet to be verified. Approximately 15 to 20 personnel are still in the medical complex.
