After informing Admiral Krieger at SB118 of their intentions, ATLANTIS acted on information provided by their newest crewmember and guide, Mr. Dorlan, and delved deeper into the Par’tha Expanse in pursuit of a terrorist group called the Paaran. ATLANTIS was contacted upon entering the closest system, and welcomed to one of the Freeworlds busiest trade systems. Lord Sonaris, the system’s administrator, allowed ATLANTIS to dock, and immediately became enamored with Cmdr Greene. Information on the Paaran’s possible whereabouts caused the senior staff to divide into two away teams to follow various leads. One team is scouring the planet’s surface, while the other is searching a neighboring space station. Those remaining on ATLANTIS have been invited to the administrator’s private apartments to discuss diplomatic relations over dinner.
