Teaser: Ninety minutes into their mission to investigate a malfunctioning Romulan Space Station in the Shackleton Expanse, the Kimura detects a small cloaked vessel about to ram them. Some fancy maneuvering by the helmsman causes the small ship to miss the Kimura, but it then slams into the space station.
A few minutes later, as the crew of the Kimura is recovering from the drastic maneuvering, the Security Chief receives a call from near the Med Lab. “Send help! It’s alive and …”. The communication is cut off.
Is the Away Team still alive? What has happened in the Med Lab?
- Cmd. O’Nnyah (Raven) (Away Team)
- Ensign Wolfgang Ratzel (Terry) (Away Team)
- Lt. Kirkuurzhaav th’Zoarhi (Trevor)
- Lt. Cmd. Sivath (Garrett)
- Lt. Cmd. Reittan Andreas (Jon)
- Captain T’Kor (Terry)
- Lt. Oqwadel (Raven)
- Chief Petty Officer Dallas Brenner (Jon) (Away Team)
- Cmd. Xedrik (Trevor) (Away Team)
- Lt Cmd. Taemin Rahn (Garrett) (Away Team)
Notable Information: The supposedly dead Romulan that had been retrieved from space turns out to be much livelier than expected.
Two additional infected Romulans are retrieved after being blown out into space from the collision of the small ship with the station.
The away team survived the collision, being in an adjacent section of the station. The pressure doors successfully close and seal off the damaged area.
The Away Team discovers that there were three different weaponized viruses being developed on the station and somehow all three got loose and infected the crew.
The collision knocked the station into a decaying orbit which would cause it to plunge into the atmosphere in several hours and likely burn up. There was a chance that some portions might survive reentry and infect the planet so the crew assisted the process by exploding the fusion reactor and using the tractor beam to ensure all large pieces would have a reentry path that would guarantee burn up.Continue reading ‘STA Mission Report 10 – Orbital Decay Part 2’ »
