Rygen: Have any ships reported being attacked or seen anything suspicious in or around the Azure Nebula that may be cause for concern? I know my parents always kept an eye out for raiders during transport and cargo missions. Any activity like that may be a way of trying to cover their tracks for what they are really doing on Zeta Iomis IV. ::Sal nodded a slow assent. While this group had kept their activities on the downlow, suspicious things had cropped up.:: Taybrim: They have. ::He nodded:: The IKS Qulp'law is the ship that= first discovered the silicon platinochloride in Klingon space and shared information with us. They have skirmished with an unidentified ship, resulting in damage to the IKS Qulp'law. Other reports note that se= veral independent traders have been hijacked or attacked for their cargo. The Klingons are only mildly investigating that. The attackers have been smart, if it was Klingon freighters that were attacked there'd be a compan= y of warbirds in the vicinity. ::The Klingon belief of =E2=80=98if it's not Klingon it doesn=E2=80= =99t matter' sometimes meant that they could be stubbornly blind to intelligent problems that chose to avoid Klingons until they had amassed enough power to face the Empire.:: Braddock: Aye captain Rygen: I would suspect that as we get closer, we may encounter similar groups that have been reported. If it is just for a distraction, we may be able to detect and avoid them before being discovered. Taybrim: Can we use the Azure nebula to our advantage to hide in? Braddock: It might be possible to modify the shields and the deflector to emit the same kind of readings as the nebula itself, allowing us to hide within it. Taybrim: That would be a preferred solution if we can manage it. What sort of limitations would we have? :: Thomas racked his brain over possible scenarios and engagements protocols, trying to think of something to give to the Captain. :: Braddock: We would have to stay at a full stop, and radio silent which would keep us from being able to keep in touch with the away team on the planet Rygen: We may have limited weapons and targeting capabilities, I can work on predefined firing solutions ahead of time. Make sure that we are prepared just in case this goes wrong. ::Sal nodded very slowly, frowning. Stealth was a massive boon =E2=80=93 i= f they could get in and out with no one knowing they were there it would be considered the perfect solution. But it put their away teams at risk.:: Taybrim: That may work, but we'll need plan B in case something goe= s wrong or if we need to pull our teams out quickly. Rygen: Understood. I will go of preparations with Security and make sure they are ready. Braddock: Understood captain, we'll keep working on it in the meantime ::Sal nodded, finally taking a seat in the command chair and leaning back to puzzle out all the possibilities of this mission and what it meant to keep his ship and teams safe.:: Ensign Thomas Rygen Security Officer Starbase 118 cf3dgaming@gmail.com O239511TR0 -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "= UFOP: StarBase 118 - StarBase 118 Ops" group.
