The USS Victory, NCC-36244 is in orbit of Decas IV. A high ranking pro-Federation Senator has gone into hiding and the crew of the Victory was sent to help him. The Tal Shiar had begun assassinating what was left of the government, to attain power. With an away team on the ground, and few methods of communication, the crew of the Victory must find a place to hide, while they wait to hear from the away team. Conditions on the surface are harsh. The atmosphere is dangerous, and communications, transporters, and thorough sensor readings are sparse. After surviving a rough decent and severe damage to the shuttle-craft Bach, the team is regrouping and heading toward the first rendezvous point for contact.
