TRINITY SECTOR — An away team from Starbase 118 Operations were captured and interrogated by known Orion pirates led by the relative of a criminal apprehended recently by the station’s crew.
The Starbase 118 Press Liaison, Lieutenant AJ Craig, has today confirmed that members of the station’s command staff – led by First Officer LtCmdr. Theo Whittaker – were briefly captured by Orion criminals, led the brother of the recently arrested Oma-Saan. It is believed that the kidnapping was motivated by the fact that the away team were transporting the notorious, self-styled ‘diva’ Lady Shadonna to a concert aboard the station, as well as retribution against the station for the arrest of Oma-Saan and the station’s continued efforts to clamp down on the Jenatris Confederation criminal syndicate.
Unconfirmed reports claim that the Starfleet officers staged a breakout aboard the Orion’s vessel after learning that they were to be sold as slaves on the black market along with Lady Shadonna and her manager, Basil Hobbs. Furthermore, it is believed that LtCmdr. Whittaker was tortured by the Orion’s chief of security. Details of the crew’s escape have been classified by the station’s Intelligence department and Starfleet was not prepared to release a statement.
Also unconfirmed are reports that suggest the USS Albion, an auxiliary vessel of Starbase 118, was engaged in a tactical mission against the Orion vessel and two escort ships, despite sensor stations in the nearby New Scotland picking up weapons fire. A Romulan shuttle – believed to be privately owned by civilian consultant Arden Cain – has also been implicated in the rescue efforts. Starfleet Security and Intelligence have refused to comment at time of publication.
FNS reached out to Lady Shadonna for comment and received this statement: “I am blown-away by the bravery of the stellar officers and their treatment of me and my management in the most dire of situations. I plan to thank them all personally once they’ve all healed and returned to duty.”
The USS Albion has now returned to Starbase 118 and the press secretary has confirmed that the affected crew are on the mend physically.
STARBASE 118 — Following continued efforts to rid the Trinity Sector of a dangerous criminal element, the senior staff of Starbase 118 took a well-earned shore leave.
For the last several months, the senior staff of Starbase 118’s famed Operations Tower have been attempting to combat a rise in criminal elements within the station and its surrounding space, chiefly a cartel known as the Jenatris Confederation and a wanted fugitive by the name of Chennel. Last month these efforts resulted in the death of Marine Captain Raymond Hughes who gave his life so that Chennel’s associates, the Orion Oma-Saan and a Pelian by the name of Janker, could be brought to justice.
Following the two’s capture and subsequent transfer into Federation custody, life aboard the station has slowly returned to normal. In a stunning display of unity, the station’s Starfleet crew came together to mourn the loss of their fallen comrade in a moving service led by the station’s Marine CO Major Tatash. The following evening took a different tone when the senior staff attended the housewarming party of the station’s CAG Lieutenant Antero Flynn, who has moved into a beachfront house on the Little Risa island in the station’s Commercial Sector. The station also played host to Captain Jalana Rajel, who surprised station CO Sal Taybrim with a promotion to the rank of Captain.
“Captain Taybrim’s promotion is well earned, overdue and sends a clear message to the criminal elements in local space that Starfleet is taking the threat they posed very seriously,” said station press liaison AJ Craig. “We have routed the station of the Jenatris Confederation’s influence, and we will continue to come down hard on them wherever they appear.”
When asked whether the Operations Tower had any leads on where the fugitive Chennel is, Craig simply replied with “no comment.”
