TRINITY SECTOR – The starliner Meridia was playing host to a murder mystery themed event when targ urine found its way into the vessel’s propulsion system – effecting a complete shutdown.
Captain Elana Doreln, Meridia’s captain, petitioned Starbase 118 for assistance. Following a rescue effort, the vessel is now docked. It is not known at this time how a targ was introduced to an area of the ship usually off limits to unauthorised crew.
“Yes I can confirm that a repair crew has been assigned to… ‘degunk’ the Meridia,” said Starfleet press liaison Lieutenant Annnabeth Hooper, “It has been a quiet week and we were only happy to render assistance. Captain Doreln has expressed her heartfelt gratitude and invited Captain Taybrim and the Operations Tower’s senior staff to a formal dinner this evening.”
The Meridia has been coined by several FNS travel writers as “a playground for those with far too much latinum” and has a waiting list of prospective guests of two years. The vessel is especially unusual for it’s heavy use of holography, utilising the technology to quickly change interior design specifications to match the themed cruises as well create ‘murder victims’ and to bolster the vessel’s already large hospitality staff. It has come under fire from advocates for hologram rights on a number of occasions, although Dr. Isabellzia Zantos, the owner of the Meridia, has refuted any such involvement of these activists on this occasion.
