We’re being sent to a remote federation outpost on the Klingon/Federation Border. We will receive further information once we arrive. VMU-12 – Starfleet utility support squadron, operates a small outpost (similar DS9). Working near Klingon border though it’s more operations than scientific research. Being pulled off my assignment at this late point is extremely unusual…. I’m suspicious that I have been picked for my telepathic abilities.
I am transferred to a ship that rendezvous with an intrepid class. (Came all the way on U.S.S Voyager).
There is another officer on board also going to this place. I do some research:
Base – Marines, 6x runabouts, 2x talon class scout ships, ~120 people. Starfleet!
Rated – High Risk vocation. Commander Niles. Edge of system – Relay system – gives forewarning of attacks.
I manage to pull up schematics of the base. Landing pads are underground. Check that the planet doesn’t have any unusual characteristics (Other than M Class).
Point Aransas – M Class Planet – Standard Design – Repair facilities are the only unique thing of this sector.
Lieut(j.g.) Wyatt Stone (ASSHOLE) – tombstone – Speaks Klingon, Academy training one – directed to Wolf 359, Commendation for his actions during the attack – Rapid Response tour.
Lieut (j.g) Jack Gibson – Sandgroper – Australian Bevin – Operations – joined academy just out of school – went into operations – spent first tour on Earth – Setting up communications/operation centre → Attached – Rapid Response Front Line team (not a lot of info – secret squirrel). Location – Classified. Speaks Klingon, Vulcan. 28 years old.
Black – Security
Red – Command

Jack Gibson – Wanted a job on the flagship. Was about to interview
Jack Gibson – sums up my life –

2x 10man marine groups – Colonel Silver
Hasn’t exactly explained why we are here.
He implies we are just standard
I ask bluntly why are we here
Lieut Stone smooths it out.
Running low on officers – replacements – desperately needed.
Why were we chosen!!
What’s the anomaly – Kiorian Anomaly. ½ light year in diameter. Limited study – Phasing properties. Obscure paper – Daystum institute –
Vulcan expedition – secretive.
Four shifts – Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta
Threat level – moderate – messages sent at all time.
Lieut (j.g) Mok – Tellarite enginner.
Chief Petty Officer – Kenneth Reckonbecker – red team.
Red team – that platform U.S.S Medicine Bow
Head to the Mess Hall – segregated troops.
Tried to get a sense of the minds – but overloaded…. Temporary damage.
Head to the replicator while Lieut Stone heads to the chef.

Stone doing a decent job of command
I did a passive scan – excellent – Planetoid E
Reading an impression –
Planetary L Planet.
Tried to build on the missing U.S.S Pelican, chief wasn’t ready to talk yet…. Something up.
Weird – Phasing Anomoly – Temporal Flux – Emitting Excrement. Quantum Singularity?? – (Double x1) – No chance!! Player Knowledge – El-Aurian… the Wave…. Schism sub space!
Gaseous cloud – mask sensors – could be naturally phenomenon. Chat’s Cloud
32 scan on the planetary – Certain it is a man-made structure – low EM fgrequency – Orion – Certain communication with another vessel – cloaked vessel on our side of the border!
Mostly human on the planet – Naussicans (20 peeps) 4x Naucissans
Wyatt – Get Bravo to setup evasion plans
From what I have quickly seen, there is no reason for the array. Communication with the outpost should be standard.
