August plot summary for Gemini

Share this:

After the USS Gemini, NCC-80564, arrived at Rathos Prime, Commander Liam Frost approved a team to set up a mobile lab on the planet’s surface. The team, led by Lieutenant Commander T’Mar, arrived safely and began working on finding a cure. With news of the Federation assistance spreading, locals began rioting in the capital city. Concerned, Frost checked in with T’Mar and the team to stay alert. Major Ben Edwards, in charge of Security, then received an alarm that something or someone was approaching their position.

Meanwhile, on the Gemini, the crew continued their work as well and found increasing evidence that the pathogen was man-made. Also learning of the perimeter breach, Frost reached out to Rathosian authorities. To make the situation worse, some of the group that had approached the away team’s lab became increasingly violent, attacking the shuttle and the lab itself. While obviously a threat, the situation was made even worse when Lieutenant Driscoll accidentally infected herself with the lethal virus. The away team scrambled to secure the situation, while the Gemini prepared to fire a warning shot on the surface.

As more violent locals headed to the area, T’Mar allowed Lieutenant Commander Oliver Weston to separate from the group to secure the shuttle only for him to find that the shuttle had been grounded and he was pinned down. With the situation escalating and Driscoll infected, it is up to the crew of the Gemini to find a way to calm the riots and find a cure or risk violating protocols to beam the team to safety.
