STARBASE 118 — Starfleet Command confirms that Chennel, a wanted fugitive, was killed during an unsuccessful attempt to commandeer the Trojan-II class space station.
Chennel, who had outstanding arrest warrants in over a dozen star systems across the Alpha and Beta Quadrants, is believed to have boarded the station during a recent preventative evacuation as the station came into contact with a powerful neutronic storm. A spokesbeing for Starfleet Command refused to be drawn on the details of how the criminal managed to survive the storm, but sources speaking to the FNS on condition of anonymity claimed that salvaged advanced technology was responsible.
STARBASE 104 – With terse diplomatic talks fully completed and peace reigning at dock, the Constitution crew get some true rest and relaxation.
After the civil unrest ended on Starbase 104 and the Hinji and Linarans began an uneasy truce, the crew of the USS Constitution (NCC-9012-B) were finally able to use the station to their fullest extent to recuperate. Lt. Cmdr. Maxwell Traenor hosted a party for the senior officers, and once official recognitions of the crew by Capt. Jalana Rajel had concluded, the fun began in earnest. Musical entertainment was provided by Lt. Cmdr. Traenor, Cmdr. Saveron, and Lt Solaris McLaren, while the rest of the senior crew mingled and socialized.
DANUBAE SYSTEM — The USS Athena continues her mission in the Gamma Quadrant, presenting several logs to share.
STARBASE 104 — The crew of the USS Constitution successfully salvaged peace talks between the Hinji and the Linarans.
Mediation talks between the Hinji and Linarans of the Leron sector had broken down completely as deliberate food poisoning incapacitated many of those present at the talks, including Capt. Jalana Rajel and Cmdr. Sarah Mason of the USS Constitution, among others throughout the station. Complicating matters, a concurrent terrorist attack on Nightshade, the primary Linaran habitat of Starbase 104, sowed more chaos and confusion.
DEEP SPACE 26 — The crew of the Andrais Task Force are taking a well-deserved shore leave after helping the people of Kiros III
The crews of the Blackwell and Atlantis spent several weeks assisting in the relief effort on Kiros III. Once the crews had seen to needs of the people, investigation into the quakes and the unknown A’Kir device continued. The A’Kir were eventually cleared of wrongdoing and Kirosian Prime Minister Licas recognized the favor they’d been done by the A’Kir’s call for aid.
HOCKTIN SYSTEM — After a frightening fight against computer malfunctions, the crew of the USS Za, NCC 65305, has managed to repair one of the most unique vessels in the fleet and get back to their mission.
When we last heard from the Za, technical difficulties had disabled the entire ship and put the crew in desperate peril. With no other ships in the vicinity to help with repairs, the crew raced against the clock to find a solution that would put them back on course and get systems back online.
Members of the senior staff, including Chief Engineer Cmdr. Alex Blair, returned to the Za to find her disabled after their recent away mission. With her chief engineer back onboard – and the members who had been trapped in the holodeck finally freed – repairs were jumpstarted.
Multiple members of of the crew had been injured by that holodeck malfunction, and were treated in sickbay, though a new medical officer and her pet – having both arrived with Cmdr. Blair aboard the shuttle, were not a welcome sight among some members of the staff.
“That new medical officer brought a filthy dog into sickbay,” complained Chief Medical Examiner Lieutenant Alosia Freymott. “The beast was probably flea-ridden and full of diseases that will require a complete sickbay disinfection.”
With the crew on the mend, the computer and engines restarted, an investigation began into the cause of the ship-wide issue. Preliminary reports suggested sabotage, but further analysis determined that specific flaws in the Za’s computer programming were not able to mitigate a series of cascading failures. Starfleet reports that these issues will be cleared up with a scheduled upgrade at a starbase.
TRINITY SECTOR — Wanted fugitive, Chennel, believed to be in control of the station.
Unconfirmed reports from the Federation Embassy on Raskor I have suggested that the Bolian – considered the most dangerous woman in the galaxy by law enforcement officials – has commandeered the station’s Operations Tower, the nerve centre of the entire facility.
LUXIS SYSTEM – The Til’ahn First Militia killed at least 5 in the Laudean Capital of Lokesh City; Starfleet forces are on high alert.
An early morning explosion rocked Lokesh City as a suicide bomber detonated themselves, killing at least five Pro-Federation officials and several others. Starfleet personnel, rushing to assist the local authorities, found an angry crowd placing blame squarely on Starfleet and the Federation. Surprisingly, the local authorities seemed to share the sentiment. “Your presence is not welcome here,” said Sub Marshal Gorala, one of the first responders on the scene. “We have no need of your technological assistance, nor your expertise. Now go before I have the three of you arrested.”
SHOALS — A rogue M-class planet has been discovered by the USS Veritas in the large tetryon storm known as the Maelstrom.
The Veritas crew had been investigating the sudden loss of contact from Yorba Station, a small refueling station in the Shoals. After launching two shuttle teams to check for survivors and recover any data from the remains of the station, those remaining on the ship proceeded to venture further into the storm, finding a pocket of calm space within the edges of the 3-light year-wide storm. Furthermore, the crew were surprised to find an M-class world, inhabited by a civilization that had achieved a 20th-century Earth-equivalent technological level.
PALANON, TYRELLIAN SYSTEM — After an extensive investigation, the perpetrator of the bombing and near-fatal assault aboard the USS Gorkon has been identified and arrested.
After a devastating explosion and a near-fatal assault at a diplomatic conference aboard the USS Gorkon, investigations continued aboard the flagship of the Tyrellian Exploration and Defence Taskforce. The perpetrators of the attack against Fleet Captain Reynolds were identified as Chief Petty Officer Alexei Volkov and a Romulan diplomatic attaché whom sources have identified as Væbn. Their motives appear to be personal in nature; Volkov son’s died under Reynolds’ command, and Væbn’s brother died in a conflict against one of Reynolds’ previous commands, the USS Drake. Claiming diplomatic immunity, Væbn returned to Romulan space, while Volkov remains in Starfleet custody, pending a trial.
