  1. 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.
  2. And Whether Pigs Have Wings* Chirakis Kirel Kirel stood just outside her office door, her eyes narrowed and her thoughts intensely focused on surveillance screens as she watched the latest episode of As Aegis Turns unfold. She had taken her usual stance, the one that often deterred disruption: stock still, arms crossed, expression intense as her gaze darted from one screen to another. It wasn't ordinarily meant as a deterrent, though at times it served that purpose well. She was merely thinking, looking for something, but what she was looking for she hadn't a clue. But she did know that something would emerge eventually. Everything was quiet, and had been fairly quiet since the dramatic docking of USS Mason. The ship came bearing Federation investigators and as many rumors as could possibly fit on a station, and then some. Adriatic’s experience—or conspiracy, depending on how you want to spin it—seemed to absorb the thoughts of everyone involved. Thankfully, the incident had been classified, so most did not know. If we add that to Ma’ev’s destruction and her crew’s mutterings about the Lore Kings, we have the making of a blockbuster novel—novel because not many would ever believe it had happened. “Coffee, Captain?” “Thank you, no,” she replied to the ensign as she raised one hand to stroke her chin. She had too much on her mind, too many incidents to deal with… most recently, the children. Yes, the children. Their parents and guardians had aired their concerns. It was their right, of course, but were she in the same situation, she would…. No. She wouldn’t. She could not relate. She could not relate at all. The surveillance screens faded as her thoughts wandered. The danger the children posed to security as well as the danger to themselves was incalculable, especially if whomever was calling the shots aboard USS Mason saw the children lurking and took them into custody. Commander Walsh was like that. Their parents may never see them again. They would be hostages of the Federation. Was she paranoid? Perhaps she was, but it was better than the opposite, especially when the children were concerned. Annisha. Alexis. Miana. Of the three, perhaps only Annisha had experienced the dark side of life, but for the most part, the children’s lives had been fairly simple. They were well fed, clothed, educated, and protected. In short, they lived a life of innocence Kirel could not begin to imagine. The captain's first twelve years were spent in a colony of Bajoran slaves on a remote asteroid in Cardassian space. She was born there, and that she survived to the age of twelve was nothing short of a miracle. Survival meant tunneling into piles of garbage to evade drunken, marauding Cardassian slave drivers who prowled the colony for young female Bajoran slaves to... enjoy. Children and parents worked the mines by day and furnished different forms of entertainment by night. The garbage dump was not only Kirel’s refuge, it was her source of comfort, her place of rest, and her source of food—of which there was little. Her education? Apparently somewhere buried in her genes was one of survival, stealth, and cunning. She hid in musty, dark attics to eavesdrop on Cardassian overlords as they discussed life outside the colony. Through them, she learned of Cardassia, the asteroid belt, and the location of the asteroid on which she lived. By watching and listening she learned their language, their tactics, and small craft maneuvers. She practiced their combat tactics in secret. She dug metal scraps from the garbage dump and skillfully fashioned them into weapons, then stored them in an abandoned area of the mine. She hoped to escape some day. She never had the chance. The colony was discovered by a small Klingon force under the command of HoD GoragH. When GoragH saw the she slaves’ condition, he exploded in an outrage, attacked and mercilessly slaughtered the Cardassians, then freed the Bajoran slaves. Kirel survived. Her parents did not. Several years later she would be recruited by Starfleet Intelligence and eventually become what she was now: Chief of Security in charge of three highly intelligent and inquisitive children who have no idea what it is like to be held captive. Except for Annisha. She knew. “Captain?” Lt Garand’s voice drew her back to reality. Her arms dropped slowly and a deep breath followed by a long sigh tried unsuccessfully to erase the memory. She could still hear their voices, feel the dankness of the mines, and smell the dump she ate from and slept in. “Lieutenant.” She nodded. “Walk with me.” A slow pace down the corridor helped to clear her mind and focus on the situation at hand. Upon entering the conference room, she secured the door and engaged surveillance of the USS Mason’s docking area. “Just so you are aware, Lieutenant, Ensign Guidry has been permanently moved to heavy administrative duty and will not be joining your security detail, or any security detail for that matter. He was apparently ‘otherwise occupied’ when the children entered the docking area.” Garand’s jaw clenched, pulling his lips and brows into a deep frown. “Otherwise occupied, Captain?” “We won’t go into that, Lieutenant. Suffice to say that it took all my strength to not….” She stopped short of wring his neck, and chose, “...convene a court martial. I have informed his… companion’s superior. It will not happen again. Ever.” Immediately dropping the subject, she pointed at the monitor where the docking area was visible from several angles, then stepped back to study it closely. “I have studied the surveillance records, but I want you to tell me what you and your detail observed. Even the smallest bit of information is important. What did you notice? What did the detail notice? What did those who were interviewed say when they left the ship, if anything? What did they look like—their expressions, the way they walked out versus the way they walked in? Anything.” After a few hours of discussion and documentation, Garand left. Kirel mentally stacked his information next to the information gleaned from surveillance footage. What emerged was more than interesting. Curious. Actually… beyond curious. In fact, it might be the key to knowing the investigators' true purpose. ____________ *The Walrus and the Carpenter Lewis Carrol
  3. =/\= Aegis Mission Brief 4/13/18=/\= 23 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.113 TBS is 1 hour. The time is 1700 hours (5:00 PM) Aegis local. USS Mason has downloaded long range scans. Thanks to our "investigators," the transport ship Polo is minus a navigator. Yes, the RSE ships are still there. Yes, they are still strangely silent. Yes, Ma'ev's crew is still aboard, minus 3 who have permission to leave on the Polo. And... the children are in deep doodoo for entering a secure docking area.

Tarisa: ::Sitting in the labs, patiently waiting.:: Amanda Davis PhD: I just checked on Ensign Jackson. He seems like he's mending nicely, but I would like your opinion. Dacia Sandero: +Chikaris + thanks, I'll be quick. Captain, sorry to say but I wasn't too pleased regarding Lt Garand's conduct regarding his treatment of Alexis and Miana. Yes they should not have entered the docking area but he should not have shouted at them to leave. I’d like to file a complaint as he was rude and unprofessional in his conduct mimipavilion: What is it? Chirakis: Hm... Nijil tr'Korjata: +Jylliene+ Nijil here, fell asleep in the shuttle again. Amanda Davis PhD: Just your opinion of his general health. Jylliene: ::is not surprised:: mimipavilion: Ok. Jylliene: +Nijil+ Ah.

Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Sees Chirakis into something :: Tarisa: ::Ears perk up as she hears the doors. She looks up, seeing Jorahl.:: Hello. Kallah Ramson: Take your time. The investigators seem to be calling it a day themselves. Jylliene: +Nijil+ See my message regarding Annisha. Nijil tr'Korjata: +Jylliene+ Station did not explode.... what? Chirakis: ::nod:: Thank you Captain. ::Cayne:: Take the main console. Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> ::notes Tarisa:: Good, you're here.

Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> We have an issue to deal with. Nijil tr'Korjata: +Jy+ Did she break into the secure area? Jylliene: +Nijil+ As the Humans would say, Bingo. Dacia Sandero: Thanks, I'll be back soon Annisha: :: In her quarters :: mimipavilion: ok. Chirakis: ::enters the lift, directing it to go directly to her office:: Tarisa: ::Tilts her head curiously.:: An issue? Dacia Sandero: ::heads out of sickbay:: mimipavilion: ::turns to Amanda:: He's physically fine. Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> Something is trying to access the device. I've got it locked down in the shipyard. It however it trying to reply to something. And it's directing its signals towards Aegis. Nijil tr'Korjata: +Jy+ I don't think she did. I will need to check the logs, but I think there was a security lapse. Chirakis: ::enters, informs the OIC of Dacia's coming::: Dacia Sandero: ::makes her way over to her office :: Tarisa: ::Ears lower.:: That is...not good... Jylliene: +Nijil+ She got in, regardless, and there was a scene. Amanda Davis PhD: Well, that is good news. His brain scans show no damage. Has he been eating well? Nijil tr'Korjata: +Chirakis+ If au have time I think there is a security issue we need to address. Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> Indeed. And the list of suspects is short. Jylliene: +Nijil+ She needs to learn to listen to crewmember directives. Before she gets herself or the other children shot. Tarisa: ::Activates internal sensor logs.:: Nijil tr'Korjata: +Jy+ I am going to Chirakis directly. Dacia Sandero: ::entered security, looking for the captain's office:: Chirakis: ::sighs:: +Nijil+ My office. Jylliene: +Nijil+ You *what*? mimipavilion: Yep, just updated his nutritional meals from liquids to soft solids Nijil tr'Korjata: +Jy+ I do not believe the issue is as simple as that. Lawliet: ::stands up and walks over to the turbolift:: Tarisa: Do you suspect the investigators from the ship that recently arrived? Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> ::looms over Tarisa's station:: These are the frequencies it is trying to use. ::enters them into the panel:: Nijil tr'Korjata: +Jy+ Heading to her office now. I'll let au know what I find out. Jylliene: +Nijil+ You STARTED this conversation asking if she went somewhere she shouldn't have, and are now saying it isn't that simple?? Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> More than likely, yes. Dacia Sandero: ::is eventually directed to Chirakis' office:: Amanda Davis PhD: ::slight smile:: I noticed crumbs on his bedsheets. They looked suspiciously like donut crumbs. Jylliene: ::screams inwardly:: mimipavilion: Yeah, told him it was part of the update. Chirakis: ::waves Dacia in:: Please, Doctor. Sit. We will make this a group discussion. SubCommander Korjata is inbound. Lawliet: ::walks into the turbolift:: Sickbay Tarisa: ::Frowns as she looks at the input.:: Dacia Sandero: Oh, okay. Thanks for seeing me sir. Chirakis: ::waves her into a chair at her conference table:: Dacia Sandero: ::nods and takes a seat:: Tarisa: Is the device legally within their investigation parameters? Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Enter the conference room, or simply where the table was at :: Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> That might depend on who you ask. Chirakis: ::directs the OIC to escort Nijil, and possibly Miana's parents:: Tarisa: ::Nods.:: Has the Captain been informed yet? Lawliet: ::gets off the turbolift and walks down the corridor:: Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> Since they will not be stepping foot onto my shipyard or any other Romulan controlled facilities, we'll go with it Not. Tarisa: Yda> ::Is shown to the office, the High Elder had opted to stay behind.:: Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> I expect she already knows. These frequencies are near certain telepathic frequencies. She just might have known before I did. Amanda Davis PhD: ::she flicks through the PADD:: I'm going to release him as far as psychological problems so long as he doesn't have severe nightmares, Mimi. I'll leave the rest up to you. mimipavilion: Is there anything else, Dr? Tarisa: ::Thinks.:: Can we shield it from further tampering? Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> That is my hope. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: enters :: Captain. mimipavilion: Understood, I'll let Dacia know since he is her patient. Tarisa: ::Slides over to another terminal to go through shielding options.:: Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> I have managed to block the device from sending signals out. But that isn't stopping it from receiving commands. I don't need some bumbling fool triggering something. Lawliet: ::walks into sickbay:: Amanda Davis PhD: Of course.... donuts, you say? ::lightly chuckles:: Tarisa: Yda> ::Politely enters, noting Dacia and Nijil are here as well.:: Amanda Davis PhD: I'll leave you to your work, then. mimipavilion: ::nods:: Dacia Sandero: ::politely nods at Yda:: Nijil tr'Korjata: Dacia. Chirakis: ::stands in the presence of Yda, a senior to her::: Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> We of course must be delicate about this. While I can do what I wish on the shipyard we do not need to cause any complications with your Starfleet investigators. Dacia Sandero: ::nods:: Nijil Chirakis: Please, ambassador. ::offers her a chair:: Annisha: :: to herself :: Some secure area. If they can't keep kids out... Federation…. Tarisa: Yda> ::Greets everyone.:: Thank you, Captain. ::Takes a seat.:: Lawliet: ::looks around:: Chirakis: ::remains standing:: I believe I know why all of you are here, and I believe it has to do with children. Am I correct? Dacia Sandero: Correct sir. Nijil tr'Korjata: Ie. Amanda Davis PhD: ::passes Lawliet on her way out:: Hello, Commander. If you are looking for Ens Jackson, he is sleeping. Dr. Pavilion is in her office. Chirakis: So, I will make myself very clear. Tarisa: ::Nods.:: I understand, but this is not Federation property we are dealing with. This is considered a joint discovery. Certain...precautions must be maintained. Lawliet: Thank you. ::walks over to Dr. Pavilion's office:: Chirakis: I watched Lt Garand as he approached the children and carried out my orders. And my orders were to treat the children as adults, within reason... Dacia Sandero: But they're NOT adults sir.. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Listens :: Chirakis: All three children are highly intelligent. All three children know better than to enter secure areas without proper escort. Chirakis: ::ignores Dacia for the moment::: Chirakis: They know better. Therefore, they were treated as adults. ::eyes Dacia::: Dacia Sandero: They do, but it still doesn't warrant a grown man screaming at innocent little children. Chirakis: These three children have a record of mischief on this station.... Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> I agree. Still, you will excuse my Romulan nature. Subtlety would be best. Dacia Sandero: ::what record?:: Tarisa: ::Brings up the shielding plans that suit her best.:: If we go with this modification, it should prevent further tampering. ::Tail swishing about.:: mimipavilion: ::looks back at some work and notices something out of the corner of her eye and looks:: Hello Mr. Lawliet. Chirakis: This event was but one in a long list of what many would call childish mischief. In reality, that mischief could easily cost them their lives. Lawliet: ::walks in and sits down:: How is Jackson doing? Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Is holding himself together :: Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> Set it as a subroutine on a diagnostic process. That will limit others ability to override the settings, for a time. Chirakis: ::glares at Dacia:: Lt Garand did not scream. He spoke with a serious tone. One that he was trained to use when someone is about to be injured mimipavilion: Resting, psychologically he has been released, Dr. Sandero has yet to release. Tarisa: ::Nods, setting up the shielding. Holds on activating for the moment, she looks up at him.:: Shall I? Chirakis: Doctor, SubCommander, Ms Ambassador. Your children are in my care and I will not allow them to be injured in any way. Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> ::looks the programming over:: Good work. Yes. Activate. Chirakis: Now... :::straightens up:: Have you any questions? Tarisa: Yda> ::Taking in what is being said.:: Tarisa: ::Activates the shielding program on the device.:: Tarisa: It is done. Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> Good. Lawliet: ::nods:: I see. Chirakis: Dr. Sandero. You were concerned. If you have something to say, now is the time. Nijil tr'Korjata: Had they entered the secure area or approached it? If they did enter, then I would question the nature of the security there. mimipavilion: I'll let you know when he's released. Dacia Sandero: I appreciate that Captain, but I just wish that it could've been done in a more calm way. If he just told them to leave in a calm voice, they would've. They're good children. Alexis is caring and obedient. She would've left without question... they were too scared to move initially and Alexis has spent the past hour consoling poor Miana over what happened.. but.. Tarisa: Yda> ::Frowning.:: Dacia Sandero: ..Captain, Alexis' parents are Federation and Betazed diplomats (Federation & Betazed Ambassadors to Andoria)... would she also be entitled to a security detail as Miana is? That would help ensure she's safe and stays out of trouble. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Pauses as he nearly spoke over Dacia :: Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> ::ponders a moment:: Have they questioned you yet over the mission? Chirakis: ::Yda:: Ms Ambassador? Tarisa: ::Shakes head, with a slight frown.:: No. Lawliet: Thank you Doctor. ::he gets up and walks out:: mimipavilion: ::nods:: Anytime. Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> I except they will soon. mimipavilion: ::feels like the popular person and resumes her work:: Chirakis: Madam Ambassador, have you something to say? Lawliet: ::walks out of sickbay and stand in the corridor for a bit:: Tarisa: Yda> ::Looking up.:: I thank you for your concern Captain. I understand your officer was doing what he felt was right. Mithraan children, and Miana in particular, are not used to being placed in a situation like this in their age. Dacia Sandero: ::feels better after she said her piece:: Chirakis: ::nods understanding::: Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> ::stands straight:: I am not sure how you perceive your "perfect" Federation and it's "enlightened" methods. But I warn you against going into that meeting with any doubt in yourself. They Will use it against you. Tarisa: ::Nods.:: Thank you for the advice. Chirakis: I understand all of your concerns. Dr. Sandero, if you believe it necessary, I can furnish a security detail. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Wonders if his question was heard, listens :: Lawliet: ::puts his head up and walks down the corridor into the turbolift:: Commerce. Chirakis: SubCommander, they were inside a zone that is secure. I will definitely look into the possibility that their entrance to that secure area was due to security negligence, and I will certainly deal with it. Dacia Sandero: I would appreciate that as would Alexis' parents. I can get them to file the appropriate paperwork to arrange it. Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> ::nods:: When you see your chief, inform him of these precautions we've put in place. And I may need his and your aid soon. Now that I can keep the device calm for a little bit I think I may be near a breakthrough. Chirakis: ::nod to Dacia:: Of course. Tarisa: ::Nods.:: I will let him know. Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> ::turns towards the door:: I will leave any more details till... after your interrogation. ::stiff nod then exits the lab:: Chirakis: Is there anything else? Tarisa: ::Frowns as her ears lower at the word interrogation.:: Nijil tr'Korjata: I will interview Annisha to get her take on the events. But... she seemed angry, not scared. Chirakis: ::nods:: Tarisa: Yda> ::Shakes her head as she gets up from her seat.:: I do not think there is much more to discuss. Thank you for your time, Captain. Dacia Sandero: Yes, thank you for your time. Chirakis: Of course. Now, if you will excuse me, there are certain matters that are ongoing and I must return to Command and Control. Lt Markazi will escort you out. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: nods :: Dacia Sandero: ::nods:: Tarisa: Yda> ::Nods and exits.:: Lawliet: ::gets off the lift and walks down the pathway:: Chirakis: ::makes a swift exit and enters the lift:: CnC Nijil tr'Korjata: Yda and Dacia, a moment please. Chirakis: ::steps out and checks the area, then moves to her console:: Commander Cayne, report. Tarisa: Yda> ::Stops a moment, looking at Nijil.:: Dacia Sandero: ::Stops and turns at Nijil:: Yes? Chirakis: ::looks up to Captain Ramson, who seems relaxed, if only a little:: Nijil tr'Korjata: To the both of au. Annisha is very protective of her friends. She will do what she has to in order to protect them. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Situation normal at the moment Captain. Chirakis: ::nod:: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Nothing on the perimeter and nothing much in the sector. Tarisa: ::Makes a note to Lawliet about the new shielding she placed on the device with Jorahl.:: Tarisa: Yda> That is very reassuring. Chirakis: And our "guests"? Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Keeping a low profile. Chirakis: Good. Chirakis: ::she hopes:: Nijil tr'Korjata: There are measures to keep her safe and her friends. Dacia Sandero: For sure and I appreciate that. I hope you won't keep her from still seeing them. In that respect, Alexis is a caring girl who tries to make everyone happy. I still don't consider her to be a trouble maker or any kind. Jylliene: ::ponders and waits for Nijil to message, hopes to all the elements that he doesn't do a verbal com message.:: Dacia Sandero: ::lisens to Nijil:: Chirakis: (Last words) Kallah Ramson: ::quietly to Chirakis:: I hope those issues were settled. Problems with civilians is not another excuse we need for the investigators to dredge deeper. Nijil tr'Korjata: +IM to Jy+ All is well, concern addressed. Chirakis: ::quietly:: Agreed. Jylliene: ::ponders that:: Nijil tr'Korjata: If au feel they need time off the station, my parents have a new place now.. Nijil tr'Korjata: Large farm. Dacia Sandero: On that planet? Isn't it restricted to civilians? Nijil tr'Korjata: No, somewhere new. Dacia Sandero: Oh, nearby? Nijil tr'Korjata: in the next sector. Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: 4/13/18 Chirakis: Thank you. Chirakis: Captain, TBS? Kallah Ramson: Let's bring the things to start of morning shift. Chirakis: Will do. Chirakis: See you all next time.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 23 March 2018 22 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.112 TBS is 3 hours. The time is 1300 hours (1:00 PM) Aegis local. Adriatic is at the shipyard. Strike Force Bravo is in Aegis orbit. All operations outside Aegis space are on hold. Everything pertinent to the mission is classified top secret. Representatives from Fleet Command will arrive soon. Captain Ramson has conferred with SubCommander Jorahl regarding the satellite Adriatic retrieved. RSE Antius and RSE Chairo are still in orbit, and still strangely silent. Ma'ev's crew remains on Aegis, with no desire to leave.
  8. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 9 March 2018 22 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.112 TBS is 8 hours. The time is 0900 hours (9:00 AM) Aegis local. Adriatic is at the shipyard undergoing repairs. Adriatic’s crew has been quietly transported to Aegis. Strike Force Bravo, under the command of Captain Jon Kelley, USS Iowa, is in Aegis orbit as a precaution. All Aegis operations outside of our local area have been ordered to halt until a representative from Fleet Command arrives. We are informed that “certain actions [during the mission] are being used to further other agendas,” but that “there is nothing to worry about for the moment.” Starfleet is investigating the incident because something in the area of space that Adriatic was investigating shot the ship nearly 2 sectors away. While science focuses on how that happened and why, Adriatic’s commanding officer, Commander Lawliet, will prepare to answer questions regarding decisions made while in Alien Alliance space. Captain Ramson does not know the full breadth of what the Fleet representatives’ goals are, but “if they don't find what they're really looking for they will likely find a scapegoat to justify their investigation.” At sim begin: ~Science has begun an investigation into Adriatic’s surprise two-sector jump. ~The crew has been ordered to keep all information regarding Adriatic’s mission top secret until otherwise notified. ~Commander Lawliet has been ordered to rest.
  9. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 2 March 2018 22 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.112 TBS is 36 hours. The time is 0030 hours (12:30 AM) Aegis local. The Alien Alliance disappeared after their Interceptors and Battlecruiser postured with a show of force just inside Federation Space. Damage to Adriatic was not enough to completely disable it. Damage to Strike Force Bravo was minimal. Damage to one of the Alien Alliance Interceptors, however, was substantial enough to disable it. Strike Force Bravo has taken it and its crew in tow. At sim begin, the time is just past midnight. Adriatic and Strike Force Bravo have returned. The crew of Adriatic is enjoying a soft bed, clean sheets, and the comforts of home, except for Ens Jackson, who is in the medical complex, recovering from smacking his head against Adriatic’s helm console during the battle.
  10. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 23 February 2018 20 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.110 No TBS. The time is 1120 hours (11:20 AM) Aegis local. After exhausting every avenue of escape, Adriatic has made it into Federation space, pursued by Alien Interceptors and a massive Battle Cruiser that instantly opened up on Strike Force Bravo. Strike Force Bravo - an Akira class refit USS Iowa, the Zumwalt class stealth destroyer USS Warren, the frigate USS Tsinghua, and the D’deridex class RSE Praetor— is retaliating. On Aegis, RSE Chairo and RSE Antius are still in orbit and still strangely silent.
  11. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 16 February 2018 20 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.110 TBS is 20 minutes. The time is 1020 hours (10:20 AM) Aegis local. After several maneuvers by Adriatic meant to destroy or deter the Alien Alliance Interceptors, the Interceptors warp off and take positions between the Adriatic and Federation space. Strike Force Bravo, led by USS Iowa, waits on the other side. Meanwhile, The Romulan starships in Aegis orbit are still inexplicably silent.
  12. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 9 February 2018 20 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.110 TBS is zero. The time is 0900 hours (9:00 AM) Aegis local. Adriatic is dodging Alien Alliance Interceptors en route to Aegis through Alien Alliance space, now only a few hours from Federation Space. Task Force Bravo is at the border, waiting to intercede if needed. At sim begin, the Interceptors are closing in, and Adriatic is considering ejecting an antimatter pod, which would deplete their supply of antimatter. Captain Lawliet has an idea, but it could be risky. On Aegis, RSE Antius and RSE Chairo are still in orbit, but strangely silent.
  13. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 2 February 2018 17 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.107 TBS is 3 days. The time is 0800 hours (8:00 AM) Aegis local. Aegis received word from Adriatic’s fighter escort that the Adriatic “disappeared.” Their complete sensor logs have been sent for analysis and the squadron is returning to Aegis. When Adriatic jumped to warp to escape the planet’s gravitational pull, it was pulled onto a transwarp ribbon, similar to a transwarp conduit except that it is linked by two strong gravitational points. In a matter of minutes they traveled to the far edge of Alien Alliance space. They sent an encoded message to Aegis and is now en route at warp 5, ETA 4 days, straight through Alien Alliance Space. Three young ladies have mostly recovered from their binge in Blubby’s. The Romulan ships RSE Antius and RSE Chairo are still in Aegis orbit. They have not been a problem, which is strange and could be a problem in itself.
  14. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 26 January 2018 17 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.107 TBS is zero. The time is 2015 hours (8:15 PM) Aegis local. All is quiet on the Aegis front, except for three very sick young ladies. Adriatic’s away team beamed into an underground series of passageways and chambers to investigate the satellite’s possible planet of origin. The planet was inhabited a thousand years ago, and the crew suspects that the inhabitants were destroyed by massive tectonic activity. Meanwhile, Adriatic’s helmsman struggled with stationkeeping. An undetectable force kept pulling the ship into what Ens Jackson called a corridor. When the away team returned, a strong force prevented the Adriatic from leaving. Warp one eventually pulled them from orbit, but where they ended up was completely unexpected.
  15. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 19 January 2018 17 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.107 TBS is 15 minutes. The time is 1915 hours (8:15 PM) Aegis local. Adriatic is investigating the satellite they retrieved from the temporal fold and have traced the satellite’s origins to a terrestrial planet similar to Venus that was habitable a thousand years ago. There is evidence of high tectonic activity that could have erased what civilization was there at the time, but they have detected buried remains. An away team is investigating below the surface. RSE Antius and RSE Chairo remain in Aegis orbit, waiting for a decision from the Romulan High Command regarding the crew of Ma’ev. The High Command’s reluctance to reply and several other strange revelations concerning Antius and Chairo have created quite a puzzle. So we wait.
