USS Gorkon escapes deadly nebula

ROMAN EXPANSE, NEAR ROMULAN SPACE – After a slipstream drive failure left them stranded inside the Roman Expanse, the USS Gorkon managed to break free of a treacherous nebula.

The USS Gorkon, NCC-82293, trapped in the Roman Expanse nebula, escaped from it and a deadly creature living there. After the Gorkon suffered catastrophic quantum slipstream drive failure, teams around the ship worked on various methods to escape. A team on the bridge, consisting of Lt Commander Trellis Vondaryan, Lt Commander Eerie — whose own shuttle crashed in the Expanse and was found on the USS Phoenix — Ensign V’Rall, Lieutenant Caedan Nkai, Ensign Valesha Sienellis and Captain Walter Brunsig, analyzed the data the away team had gathered from the Phoenix. They discovered that a creature lived in the nebula and fed on energy. They also discovered a way to harm the creature, and, with the help of another team, were able to see it.

Petty Officer Second Class Isabella Wasserman, a scientist assigned to xenobiology, described the being within the nebula.


USS Gorkon Stranded in Deadly Nebula

ROMAN EXPANSE, NEAR ROMULAN SPACE – After a catastrophic slipstream drive failure, the USS Gorkon has been stranded inside a deadly, unmappable nebula.

The quantum slipstream drive aboard the USS Gorkon, NCC-82293, suffered catastrophic failure on return toward the Tyrellian Sector. After a short, rough ride the ship was light years off course in an area known as the Roman Expanse, a notoriously dangerous nebula known to be nearly impossible to map, difficult to navigate, filled with plasma and electrokinetic storms, and electrodynamic turbulence.

Shortly after arrival, the Gorkon discovered a small graveyard of derelict, mostly Romulan, ships. Propulsion specialist Petty Officer Grixx Marcix said, “Those things are old. Some have been here for more than 200 years.”
The Gorkon has also been infiltrated by at least three intruders who apparently have the ability to shapeshift and do not appear on sensors, all of whom have set about sabotaging ship’s systems.


Gorkon shore leave results in confrontation with San Francisco police

SAN FRANCISCO, EARTH – The crew of the USS Gorkon celebrate their ship’s anniversary with a lavish party at the Palace Hotel.

Having returned to Earth for repairs and to celebrate its two-year anniversary, the crew of the USS Gorkon have been enjoying their shore leave. While several of the operations, engineering and science staffs bonded over drinks at the Foo Bar in downtown San Francisco, other crew enjoyed on a penguin observation expedition in Antarctica or stayed aboard to get to know new members. Meanwhile, a formal dinner ceremony was prepared to mark the end of leave, and is planned to include an awards ceremony to recognise the achievements of the crew on recent missions.

At the Foo Bar, the Gorkon crew were sharing drinks when Commander Alucard Vess came crashing through a window after an orbital skydive training exercise with a marine contingent went awry. From there things escalated quickly. Third year cadet George Lennon, at the bar to celebrate the birthday of a friend, reports he heard “a huge crash, like a massive mirror breaking” and saw “this big guy [Vess] in a space jumpsuit carrying another guy”, later confirmed to be Marine Private Wilson Jenkins.


Gorkon celebrates 2-year anniversary back home

SAN FRANCISCO FLEET YARDS – The USS Gorkon returned to its launching point, Earth, to celebrate its second anniversary.

After a mission to Leutra IV, a class M world “that should not exist” orbiting a magnetar star which saw the crew stranded and the ship severely damaged after a cold restart, the Gorkon has returned home for much-needed shore leave and repairs.

On the way back to Earth Fleet Captain Reynolds headed a hearing involving an incident involving Chief Science Officer and Second Officer Lieutenant Commander Ayiana Sevo and a Ranger, Ensign Grace Freeman. Though the hearing, its testimony, and outcome were classified sources say it involved a fight between Sevo and Freeman. Sources further detail that Sevo was stripped of her second officer duties and she and the ranger will be sharing quarters and assist Chief Engineer Cory Stoyer in engineering duties for an unspecified amount of time. Furthermore, Fleet Captain Reynolds has ordered the 451st Ranger to be permanently transferred aboard the Gorkon, under her direct command.
