MISSION BRIEF - SD 0910.04
Alert Status: RED ALERT
Some time after the Hobus explosion...
While holding position somewhere along the Romulan Neutral Zone, sensors have detected life signs on a planet that is supposedly uninhabited. Though, before we could investigate, aStarfleet shuttle arrived in close proximity to the Federation by means unknown. After going through normal alert protocols, it was confirmed that the occupants of the shuttle were indeed who they claimed to be,Starfleet officers from the USS Lexington (which is currently on a mission far out from known Federation territory). Their shuttle was allowed to board, and Captain Hawks invited them to meet with him on the bridge and explain the technology used to jump this enormous distance.
After briefly getting acquainted with the group from the Lexington, the investigation into the matter of the life signs on the normally uninhabited planet continued. The Federation traveled to the system in question, which lays just inside the bounds of the Neutral Zone, and zeroed in on the planet that Science pinpointed as the location of the life signs. To our surprise, analysis showed that the life signs most likely were Klingon. We hailed the planet, but after no reply was made, went to yellow alert. According to available data, it seems whoever is on the planet did not arrive there because their craft crashed. Which leaves the obvious question, why are they there?
After the AT, in the shuttle Horizon,
passed through the atmospheric disturbances and zeroed in on the life
sign readings that came from a compound to the NNE, they unexpectedly
came under weapons fire. Taking a bit of a beating, the Horizon
turned about and returned fire, though it was apparent that the ground
force had better weapons. When a missile was shot down byFst. Lt. Crow but still did damage to the shields, Cmdr. Loriarra
decided to land the shuttle instead of trying to make it back through
the rough atmosphere with the shields in bad condition. The AT landed
in the middle of a dense forest and began repairs on the shields, as
well as trying to re-establish communications with the Federation, which they had lost. It appeared that the loss of communication might be due to someone jamming the signal.
While helm and Engineering will stay behind to repair anything not
functioning on the shuttle, the rest of the officers will get ready for
a trek through the forest to the source of the weapons fire. We need to
find out why theKlingons are shooting at us and jamming our signal, and
eliminate the problems... with diplomacy first, if possible.
