USS Avandar Plot Summary For August 2013


Another day, another unusual sensor reading – this time relayed to the USS Avandar, NCC-80203, by one of the long-range probes that have been launched to roam the Sector. At first glance the readings appeared to be some sort of energy fluctuation, but as the Avandar closed in on the area to investigate it became clear there was more to it than that.


The source of the readings was traced to beneath the surface of a planetoid that appeared to once have been a significant part of a moon. Also present on the surface, was a seemingly abandoned small craft broadcasting a radio signal who’s translation proved proved very hard indeed. Something about the composition of the rock made scans largely ineffective, but the energy readings that could be analysed showed significant similarities to the signature given off by Iconian technology.


With no intention of leaving something like that laying about, an Away Team was deployed by shuttle to the surface, but almost immediately trouble began. Communications began to fail very quickly, and a storm began moving in on them seemingly from nowhere, and bearing all the signs of being artificially generated.


As the Away Team moved to find shelter, the Avandar searched for some way to both disrupt the storm and regain contact with the team. Unfortunately, the best solution for both of those seemed to be to break up the storm directly – and hope that the crew on the planetoid were not caught in the backlash…

September Plot Summary for USS Discovery-C


An away team including Captain Waltas and Commander Blueheart heads to the surface of the planet, Kjenta II but the highly ionized atmosphere of the planet renders all electronics nonfunctional and the Captain’€™s yacht USS Cook carrying the away team crashes. On the high-G planet surface, the team encounters some of the surviving crew of the Columbia (still alive due to the restorative properties of the planet) who have been sending out a distress signal via the trans-atmospheric, monofilament antenna, led by Dr Treng, Columbia’s former first officer. A confrontation between the Discovery away team and Dr Treng’s henchmen results in the death of Commodore Moretti and a pursuit into Treng’s heavily guarded underground command center. Aided by one of her former loyalists, Irina Pavlova, the team makes their way into the compound via an underground tunnel, where they are ambushed.


Meanwhile on board the Discovery, with no means of establishing communications with the away team, Lt Jorus Cogud, left in command, is conflicted between abandoning the team and leaving the planet to focus their attention on finding their way back to the Avalon sector, and staying behind to mount a rescue of the away team. For every moment they spend in this uncharted region of space, the higher the likelihood of encountering a hostile enemy. This leads to a heated debate amongst the crew with a potential mutiny brewing on the horizon.

Lt James' Log, Starbase 118


Assistant Chief Engineers Log, Stardate 239011.02. Captain Rogers called a staff meeting today, to discuss a grave discovery by Lt. Richards, or at least his department. There appears to be four Ion Storms headed directly to the station at speeds that where thought to be impossible. The storms have already caused several issues with the base's systems including climate control. The storms are also interfering with the operation of Warp drives in the sector. As a result, I have stated work on disabling as many of the ships currently in Drydock's M/ARA's as possible. I only hope that the storms will not trigger any kind of reaction, I doubt we will be able to get through every ship in time...

September Plot Summary For The USS Drake


Regrouping the crew of the USS Drake 1987 balance hard data and educated guesses with gut feeling to come to the conclusion that the Pirates target is the Elkoss Combine Dilithuim refinery.


Arriving in the nick of time the crew fight off the Pirates. One group lead by Lt Col Whale evacuates the refinery while a second group lead by Captain Rogers beams aboard the Rapier, Tomic’s command ship, and manage to disable the guidance system of a second ship containing the weapon.


The third group is an individual effort with CMO Vex beaming over to the yacht and sacrificing his life in an attempt to disable the weapon. He is followed by the Drake’s CEO who in display of android efficiency jettisons the yachts warp core, sets the ship to overload and captures a clone assassin before being beamed to safety.


The fourth group lead by the Drake’s helm officer Ensign Washburn launches a wave of Peregrine fighters against the Pirate ships and their attendant fighter wing. The Peregrine’s are instrumental in destroying the enemy fighters and punching through the Rapier’s shields.


In the final show down on the Bridge of the Rapier Captain Rogers defeats Tomic in a duel via the less than sporting means of firing before the specified ten paces had been reached. Tomic is rescued by his crew and disappears. The crew of the Drake return to sb118 to take up command of the Star Base and inform the family of Doctor Vex that he is dead.

The crew of the USS Apollo, NCC-71669 managed to stumble across an Iconian Gateway on an empty planet. The senior staff took the opportunity to explore the other side of the gate before following the mandate to shut it down. As they emerged on the other side, it was not clear where the planet was located. But the inhabitants of the planet believe the crew of the Apollo to be their gods coming to collect their offering. Splitting up, the crew noticed that the level of technology the people of the planet Eridea should have, and what they did have were vastly different. They had advanced technology to help in growing crops, and quite a bit of mining technology.

Lt James' Log, Starbase 118


Assistant Chief Engineers Log, Stardate 239011.12. Fortunately my team has preformed beyond my expectations and secured more M/ARA's than I was expecting. That is not to say there where not injuries. Crewman T'swona has sustained a heavy burn from the plasma injector in Deck 9, USS Victory. Crewman Alicia Khan also received light injuries fixing the leak although her fix allowed us to shut down the Victory's M/ARA. The storm's crests are know only minutes away and the Captain has called another meeting. Hopefully this log will not be my last...


James: Computer. Erase last sentence.

October Plot Summary for the USS Mercury


Following the recall of Cmdr. Melitta Herodion, Dr. Saveron, with the assistance of Lt.(JG) Trel’lis and [PNPC] Cmdr. Ari Capronne turned from attending the auction announcement from Tol, the Ferengi owner of the Menthar Anchorage, to the monumental task of obtaining enough latinum to make a serious wager on the coordinates of the alleged Iconian gateway; and though an offer came by way of one Trayden Jora, the team was extremely apprehensive about taking the offer, as it came with a corollary: A message, from Jora, delivered to Lt. Cmdr. Isaac Bale.

November Plot Summary For The USS Discovery-C


In the midst of the memorial service for the lost ship and crew, a battle-scarred Discovery and NX-class Columbia drop out of warp at DS-285, astonishing the gathered crowd of family and friends. The solemn ceremony turns into one of celebration as both the living and the deceased are honored. The crew look forward to shore leave and to spend time with their families, but unfortunately there will be no rest for them. Admiral Samuelson has reassigned the senior staff of the Discovery to the USS Odyssey, a massive futuristic prototype, to hunt down the USS Constitution which has been stolen by none other than Fleet Captain Hebron and Captain Nekkar, the former COs of Captain Waltas! To complicate matters, the Constitution was in the deadly Galaxy Dreadnought configuration when she was stolen, effectively making her a highly formidable warship. The crew ponder the reason behind the high-profile theft as they clandestinely board the Odyssey to begin their most harrowing mission yet!

November For The USS Avandar


All crewmembers home safely, and the threat of an uncontrolled Iconian Gateway thoroughly neutralised, the USS Avandar NCC 80203 set a course for somewhere a little less unknown for a chance to take a breath and attend to a few matters that have arisen due to recent events.

November for the USS Mercury


 


Following their efforts at the Menthar Anchorage, the Mercury’s crew relaxed in a holodeck scenario designed by acting CO Harrison Ross. However, they did not count on the return of Captain Kells, very recently returned from his trial on Deep Space 10. Kells called out Commander Ross and Lieutenant Commanders Rahman and Saveron and dressed them down for holding a celebration without finishing their mission and this — along with the the captain’s meetings with several others — sparked and then fueled rampant rumors of what may have happened during his trial. Meanwhile, Ross, Rahman, and Saveron were tasked with preparing the ship to follow up on the most promising lead they’d discovered at the Anchorage: the independent trader Treasure Sprite, which was thought to have information about the supposed Iconian gateway. And though the Mercury found the Treasure Sprite quickly, the away team led over by Ross found little information and only corpses; assistant CMO Kotir Arith removed one of these to the Mercury’s morgue for further study. However, under the leadership of Lt. Cmdr. Rahman, the ship’s historians, [PNPCs] Kvitova and Gupta determined a useful search criterion for the gateway; the crew soon tracked it to the second planet of the Nygel system. Once there, Commander Ross set out again with an away team — but this time, the Mercury has company: A Keldon-class Cardassian warship equipped with an experimental cloaking device. With one shot, the Cardassian ship disabled the Mercury and thereafter tractored it, threatening the crew with death if they didn’t provide details on the gateway….

December Plot Summary for the USS Mercury


he Mercury disabled momentarily the tractor beam of the Cardassian warship and outran that ship to one of the Nygel system’s stars where, using its metaphasic shielding, the ship and crew were able to hide for a time. However, the Cardassians were not deterred, and as a last-ditch maneuver to try and convince the Cardassians that the ship had been destroyed, the Mercury’s crew evacuated and then jettisoned the sensor module to simulate the ship’s destruction. This still didn’t put off the warship, and so the Mercury was forced to trigger a solar event and try and damage the warship at the expense of their warp core. Though the warship was not destroyed, it was badly damaged.

January for the USS Discovery


The crew pursues the Constitution to the Ba’ku homeworld. It becomes apparent to everyone that Hebron and Nekkar plan to unleash the deadly Daris virus on Ba’ku, to show the world what Starfleet sought to not only sweep under the rug but to erase altogether. A horrific battle ensues between the two powerful ships and just when the Odyssey is about to deliver the deciding blow on the renegade Federation vessel, all power is lost – courtesy of a saboteur working for Hebron, who kills Lt Frye before sacrificing himself. Just when all hope is lost, the Discovery – captained by none other than Waltas’ daughter, Daisha – drops out of warp, guns blazing, to save the day!


Following the battle, Hebron surrenders, but Nekkar, acting on his own, beams aboard the Odyssey to try to wrest control of the ship to complete his task. He is confronted by Waltas and an ensuing one-to-one combat leaves both men wounded and the virus destroyed. A second saboteur is apprehended on the Odyssey – but not before she activates a warp core breach, which effectively blows up the prototype vessel.


Back on board the Discovery, Waltas makes a startling announcement to his crew. He will be retiring as CO and staying behind on Ba’ku for an unspecified amount of time. The Discovery, now under the command of Raj Blueheart, limps back to DS-285 to be officially decommissioned, her legacy as the longest serving starship in the fleet coming to a glorious end.



With this plot summary, we say farewell to the USS Discovery for at least the foreseeable future. While she will be available to future Commanding Officers who might want to reignite her long history, for now, she has earned a long rest in the Starbase 118 Fleet Yards.

January Plot Summary for the USS Tiger


While the Tiger crew were enjoying themselves at a New Year’s Eve party Deep Space 17 was rocked by an unexplained shock wave that caused chaos throughout the station by taking the reactors for main power offline and wrecking havoc with the gravity control systems.


Engineering crews worked on getting the station up and running and the rest of the crew began investigating a mysterious void in space near the Eratis star. A trio of runabouts was sent to conduct an up-close investigation of the void. During their approach, two of the runabouts were destroyed by an unknown craft.
