STARBASE 118 OPS – After Terra Prime left both physical and mental wounds on those who tried to stop them, crew members were given additional time to recuperate and ponder.
“Over the last few weeks, we’ve all emphasised showing extra love and care to our crewmates.” A medical officer, Lt. JG Trovek Arys, claimed “Not only those who were physically near to the fighting, but also individuals with links to Utopia Colony, were targeted. As well as those who were terrified, unsure, or impotent in the face of what had occurred. In a difficult circumstance like this, it was a wise move to give individuals more time to seek counselling and to encourage us to look after ourselves and each other.”
All good things must come to an end, but the following mission may provide some relief. The crew members are summoned by the emergence of an abnormality that happens precisely every 106 years. This has piqued the curiosity of experts, who have dispatched officers to investigate this peculiar occurrence.
“It’s rather thrilling,” said LtCmdr. Alora DeVeau, who had been a scientist in Starfleet for seven years before becoming the StarBase’s first officer. “This anomaly has never been researched before, and now we have the opportunity to learn more about it.”
“I’m pleased to be on my way out here.” Lead engineer LtCmdr Rustyy Hael commented. “Never know what you’re going to find.”
The anomaly is located within the Jenatris Cloud, a massive nebula noted for its volatile nature, metamorphic gases, and restricted properties. Travel is challenging, and sensors are restricted. Ships are unable to go faster than warp two, increasing the time required to cross it. Despite this, enthusiasm for the expedition is high.
“I am confident that our mission will be a success.” Lt. JG Vitor Tito, Intelligence Officer, said. “Although the Jenatris Cloud is a perilous location, it does provide a plethora of options for any scientific activity.”
Morale in respect to this mission is still high, and the scientific community is eager to learn more about this uncommon and timely occurrence.
