Admiral Krieger ordered the Atlantis to continue to search for the intragalactic terrorist, the Paaran. In addition, he assigned the 48th Starfleet Rapid Response Task Group (a.k.a. Hazard Team), to Atlantis on a trial basis for field testing. A former SF Intel operative, whom Atlantis had rescued on their last mission, was placed in command of the Hazard Team. He also had a lead on a source who could possibly pinpoint the Paaran’s location. After sitting enshrouded by the Jenatris Cloud, staking out the criminally run Midway Station, they followed their mark to the far end of the Jenatris Corridor. There they found a previously abandoned and dangerously derelict station where the informant could possibly have been hiding. Sending the Hazard team on board, they located the informant and returned him to Atlantis. Debriefing proved only slightly fruitful as the Paaran is still at large, but several possible locations of where he could be hiding have been uncovered. In addition, this new area of space, called the Par’tha Expanse, has been previously unexplored by the Federation, but is heavily populated with unique species, cultures and politics. Atlantis is en route back to SB118 for further orders.
