Aurora plot summary for February

The freshly recommissioned USS Aurora, complete with it’s new command and senior staff, departed SB118 on a combination shakedown and patrol run. Her orders were to head out to the border of the Romulan Neutral Zone and keep an eye out for unusual or suspicious activity there, as well as investigate any out-of-the-ordinary happenings that may have occurred in the wake of the Hobus supernova. With the crew still in the process of getting to know one another, the ship underwent a number of tests of it’s systems – including one rather creative experiment involving the sensor grid and it’s own emissions – but reached the Neutral Zone without incident. Almost immediately upon arrival,the Aurora detected signs of unusual levels of rather exotic radiation in the area, and has begun investigating… with no idea what the crew’s actions are about to trigger.
