From the Abyss | Sky Harbor Aegis Season 26

27 posts in this topic

18 August 2020 | 17 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.169


As Aegis enters its 26th Season, those inhabiting the station are in more danger than Starfleet Command will disclose.  Established in neural space between former Breen space and that of the Joint Allied powers, Aegis has become a target for the Alien Alliance. 


The Alien Alliance is not only establishing itself throughout a nebula string, they are taking over planetoids and large asteroids in strategic positions to form a cordon around the Joint Allied Powers.  Some of their ships and armaments are beyond our ability to counteract.  It is said that if they bring us to war it will make every other war look like a party and Aegis will be its center.
Task Forces led by modified Akira Class Starships USS Missouri, USS Iowa, USS Toronto, and USS Calgary monitor the areas between Allied and Alien space, keeping a close watch on every move.  


That said, Aegis has also been dealing with internal attacks.  The Vulcan V’Mal came aboard and employed The Stone of Gol, an ancient Vulcan weapon that focuses on an amplified telepathic energy.  V’Mal attempted to take hold of Aegis personnel via intense psychic focus. It will never happen again.


More recently, the Alien Alliance convinced a naive group we call Gremlins to enter crawl spaces and plant Alien Alliance equipment for future use. As soon as security’s clandestine operators resolved that issue, they had to deal with plants—tasty but deadly—that are being sold on the commerce deck.  Add to that Pakleds who enjoy eating the plants and became ill, and we are on the onset of a very interesting year.

17 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.169

TBS is 0 hours - the time is 1300 hours (1:00 pm) Aegis Local.

The eradication of deadly plants that emit an unbelievably putrid stench on the station is continuing. A majority of the commerce level is clear.  Security is clearing the plants from all other areas.

All Pakleds are quarantined in the Medical Complex, even if they are medically fit for discharge. Security is monitoring the Pakleds in the Medical Complex. 

Some strains of the plant have different DNA and it is possible that some have colonized the environmental system’s hub on Deck 98. Internal sensors are used to locate and beam plants off station.

In short, Aegis is dealing with a very strange, putrid, and deadly attack.  The question is where did the plants come from and who brought them aboard.

17 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.169

TBS is 5 hours - the time is 1800 hours (6:00 pm) Aegis Local.

Strange plants have appeared on station.  As a precaution, wherever they are found personnel beaming them into space.  Diverse types of the same plant are growing in different areas.  So far, science is investigating two variants and is watching closely for other strains. 

An unidentified stranger on the commerce deck originally brought the plants aboard.  Pakleds began growing and selling them.  The Medical Complex is now filled with Pakleds who ate the plant and became exceptionally ill.

At this point, the most important situations on station are illnesses and the rapid growth of these plants in different areas of the station.

18 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.170


TBS is 13 hours - the time is 0800 hours (8:00 am) Aegis Local.

The Pakleds who came aboard Aegis wanted to sell sections of the station, especially decks one through 142:  subspace communications, power core, phaser ring, monitoring and analysis, torpedo launchers, phasers, and other classified areas. Lt Garand and Captain Chirakis are aware and Commander Coleridge will be apprised, but no one else on station will know of the danger.  We suspect the Alien Alliance duped the Pakleds to attain their goal.
 
The presence of deadly plants on the station also point to the Alien Alliance.  Therefore, in addition to Aegis covert operators, Admiral Solokov will send clandestine operators to keep a close watch throughout the station.
 
At the moment, Cdr Coleridge is leading an engineering team to remove dangerous plants on deck 98.  The plants are a forest of high carbon scrubbing vegetation that not only stinks, it compromises the structural integrity of the bulkheads by weakening the duranium alloy.  They have finished clearing the environmental subsystem hub and there is no serious damage to report.

18 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.170


TBS is 5 hours - the time is 1400 hours (2:00 pm) Aegis Local.

Security is keeping a close watch on anyone going to or from secured areas of the station. 
Pakleds were trying to sell very important areas of the station, though they had no idea what they were selling.  For security reasons, only Chirakis, Coleridge, and Garand know.
Several Pakleds have died. One told Dr Davis, “Green man... Say okay. Eat...plant. Get... infor….” before he died.  The rest have been tested and quarantined. 
Some of the deadly plants on station seem to have been engineered to change the DNA of the Pakleds.  Plants on deck 98 have been neutralized and tossed into space.
Clandestine operators will be on station to keep a close watch and report to Captain Chirakis.

TBS is 19.5  hours - the time is 0730 hours (7:30 am) Aegis Local.


Security personnel are on watch for deadly green plants.  
As soon as the Pakleds ate the plants, it altered their DNA and killed them.  
All Pakleds, whether or not they ate the plants, are quarantined.  
Annisha, Miana, and Alexa might know something about the plants.  
Some plants are dangerous; others are not.  
It is possible that Aegis is under attack from within.

TBS is 4  hours - the time is 1200 hours (12:00 pm) Aegis Local.

Of all the Pakleds who ate the plant and died, two have survived. Medical is investigating the interaction between the Pakleds’ DNA and the plants.  Security has received additional resources to keep the Pakleds quarantined.  Science is examining seeds that were given to the children by a Pakled.
 
Starfleet Command has sent several clandestine* operators to Aegis.  They blend with everyone on the station and report incidents to Captain Chirakis and Commander Coleridge.

TBS is 4 hours - the time is 1400 hours (2:00 pm) Aegis Local.

We wonder why two Pakleds who ate flowers from the commerce deck are alive and well while the others died.
Vines similar to the deadly plants that killed the Pakleds have begun to grow on the walls of decks 187 and 188 and are beginning to bloom.  They have a sweet aroma and, although it seems strange, they might be sentient.  Personnel have quarantined those decks to investigate. 
We still have not heard from USS Rodman, USS Chi Song, and USS Agincourt  in nebula 231. A Starfleet Runabout has entered the nebula to search for them.

Unlike the other three types of flowers that began to grow on Aegis, Vines with a sweet aroma and beautiful flowers have begun to grow on the walls of decks 187 and 188.  When personnel are approached, the flowers reach out to touch them gently, and often bow toward them.  Decks 187 and 188 are still under quarantine.

The Starfleet Command runabout sent to retrieve the USS Rodman, USS Ci Song, and USS Agincourt has also disappeared into nebula 231.

TBS is 0  hours - the time is 1600 hours (4:00 pm) Aegis Local.

Unlike other plants found in various areas of Aegis, the plants on decks 187 and 188 have grown vines along the decking.  They weave their way up the bulkheads to grow flowers that give out a sweet aroma, and seem to be watching humanoid movements.  

Starfleet Command sent the specially designed runabout Osprey into nebula 231 to search for the USS Rodman, USS Chi Song, and USS Agincourt that has been missing for over a week. Since Aegis was closer than Starfleet Command, Osprey reported their positions by the book until its reports faded into the nebula. The closest listening beacon was 427P, not far from Aegis.

Starfleet Runabout Osprey has entered nebula 231 in search of USS Rodman, USS Chi Song, and USS Agincourt, that has been missing for at least twenty days.  Osprey reported its position and has not been heard from since. In an attempt to find them, Aegis has engaged the closest listening beacon 427P.  Focusing on the Osprey’s last known position, the search repeats in regular intervals.
 
Science is working on the vines that have taken root on deck 188.  In an attempt to track the foliage, a section with dye is being analyzed to trace it to its origin. Since they are close to the cargo section it is possible that the vines originate from there.

TBS is 14.5  hours - the time is 0930 hours (9:30 am) Aegis Local.

Focused on its last position, Starfleet Runabout Osprey searched nebula 231 to find the USS Rodman, USS Chi Song, and USS Agincourt.  The ships were found floating through the nebula without power. The Osprey has located the ships.  Aegis’s closest listening beacon is 427P.  SFC Osprey is in contact with Aegis to assist.

Science is working on the vines that have taken root on deck 188, possibly originating from the cargo deck.  The flowering vines seem to enjoy caressing Mithraan fur.

USS Rodman, USS Chi Song, and USS Agincourt are berthed on Aegis.  The ships’ personnel are under quarantine in the medical complex.  Starfleet Command’s runabout Osprey is berthed close by.

The nebular mists seem to have absorbed all power from the Oberth class ships and left the personnel alone, although that has yet to be proven.

Flowering vines on deck 188 have taken root near the cargo deck. So far they have done nothing that would endanger anything or anyone on Aegis.

USS Rodman, USS Chi Song, and USS Agincourt are berthed at Aegis.  The ships’ personnel are under quarantine in the medical complex.  Engineering is examining the ships.  It is possible that the nebular mists have absorbed the ships’ power and then vanished, leaving the humanoid personnel adrift.

Engineering believes that the USS Rodman, USS Chi Song, and USS Agincourt were not drained of power by conventional means. Faint traces of particles are everywhere, denoting that the energy was drawn out and dispersed slowly.
 
The crews of USS Rodman, USS Chi Song, and USS Agincourt are recovering from malnutrition and nothing else.  There is no sign of radiation.

The USS Rodman, USS Chi Song, and USS Agincourt were drained of power by unconventional means. Faint traces of particles are everywhere, denoting that the energy was drawn out and dispersed slowly.  The ships’ crews are recovering from malnutrition, and there is no sign of radiation. 
Questions to be answered: 

  • How was the energy disbursed without killing the crews?
  • How was the energy drawn from the ships?
  • Where did the energy go and what will be its use?
  • It is paramount that we figure out how this nebular mist works and develop countermeasures.
  • Starfleet will likely want to retask those ships as soon as possible.

To that end, Captain Chirakis has suddenly become quiet and contemplative. 
 
As for other news, the plants that are growing on deck 188 intrigue Alexis, Chubs,  Annisha, and Meg.  In their curiosity, they decided to use the Ghost Squad’s crawlway to investigate the flowers on deck 188.  It was a little more than an interesting encounter.   The flowers enjoyed stroking and cuddling humanoids, but the children didn’t seem to enjoy that as  much.

TBS is 20 hours - the time is 1000 hours (10:00 am) Aegis Local.


The USS ships Rodman, Chi Song, and Agincourt are berthed for repairs. It is possible that energy siphoned from the ships could have been taken by cloaked vessels or be tested for weaponry.  Cdr Coleridge and Ltjg Robinson will lead a team to board and examine the ships.
 
The science team continues examining three types of plants that have appeared in various areas of the station. Curiosity led several children to sneak into a crawlway to see the plants on deck 188, and were quite surprised.
 
Medical is keeping a close watch on the docked ships’ personnel.  Most of all they suffer from malnutrition.
 
Ragor Tal, devious and calculating, could be the driving force behind the illnesses, flowers, nebular mist, and probably several other schemes. Personnel connected to Rendezvous October are keeping close watch, especially Captains Chirakis and Je’rit d’Ka.

Most personnel from the USS Rodman, Chi Song, and Agincourt have been released from the Medical Complex.  A few were traumatized and will remain in Medical until they settle down.

Engineering is plowing through information to determine why and how the ships were unable to move within Nebula 231.  Traces of particles were found, denoting that the energy was probably drawn out and dispersed slowly, leaving personnel aboard to drift aimlessly through the nebula to their doom. 
 
Regarding the flowers, Lt Dran notes that they have some unusual characteristics, but they seem mostly harmless.  She recommends that the plants be trimmed back to limit their growth and to learn more by it's reaction, if any.

The USS Rodman, USS Chi Song, and USS Agincourt are berthed on Aegis.  Clad in hazmat suits, Commander Coleridge and his team have been aboard the three Oberth class ships hunting for anything that might point them in the direction of a ship’s failure.

The ships’ personnel have been nourished and released from medical care.  Only one has died.

Meanwhile, Captain Chirakis has been intensely focused on anything that seems suspicious as she walks from one deck to another whiles security checks and reports all areas of the station.  

 After two days of gathering information, the crew will gather in the conference room to report their findings.

TBS is 14 days - the time is 0900 hours (09:00 am) Aegis Local.
Two weeks have passed, and nothing abnormal has emerged.  All areas of the base are monitored—interior and exterior.

USS Missouri keeps watch under cloak. USS Iowa’s fleet floats casually through the area.

Internal areas of Aegis are monitored by Security, especially areas where the Gremlins fiddled with electronic equipment in unfinished areas of the station. Pakleds thought they were buying areas of Aegis.  Various types of plants grew—some dangerous and some gentle.

Captain Chirakis has informed Commander Coleridge of Ragor Tal and his conspirators, especially Kran Magkor, Tal’s primary assassin and a master of torture.

Security is continually on alert while others casually go about their business.

Two weeks have passed and Aegis had settled down to normalcy. All areas of the base are monitored—interior and exterior.  USS Missouri keeps watch under cloak. USS Iowa’s fleet floats casually through the area in a congenial manner, especially when they were allowed shore leave.  

Internal areas of Aegis are monitored by Security. Under cover security personnel mixed casually with the locals, listening for intel, especially at Drankum’s Bar. 

Security passed information to Kirel, who passed it on to Rendezvous October and Admiral Solokov’s Covert Operators.  Eventually it came full circle, and the information Kirel received via encrypted message from Rendezvous October was nothing less than devastating.

Morning Watch had been handed over to Midwatch.  Soon they would pass their watch to Evening, and eventually to Night Watch or Graveyard, so named in the year 1895, 493 years ago.

First Watch had left to be with their families and/or friends. Some had stayed behind for various reasons, usually to finish reports. Captain Chirakis remained in her office, passing information to Starfleet Command through encrypted subspace code.  Occasionally Admiral Solokov would appear onscreen to discuss whatever he had in mind, and this time it was very interesting.

Kirel relaxed in her chair, arms crossed, her expression curious. “Calestorm?”

Yes, Calestorm. I’m sending her dossier. I believe you’ll find it quite interesting.”

Another three days have passed and Aegis personnel wonder if this normalcy will continue.  USS Missouri’s fleet and USS Iowa’s fleet are still  monitoring the area. Undercover security personnel mix casually with the locals, listening for intel, especially at Drankum’s Bar. Security continues to pass information to Kirel, who passes it on to Rendezvous October and Starfleet Command… and on it goes.  Otherwise, everything is normal.  Perhaps too normal.

Science is calculating power requirements for increased computer sensor processing.
Dr Pavilion has requested a medical inspection from the cargo vessel Haradia.
New personnel have come aboard Aegis: some fresh from the academy, some fairly knowledgeable, and one officer whose expertise goes beyond the norm.
