Stardate 220706.1700

Alert Status: RED

Position: Orbiting a Class-M Planet with a Temporal Wormhole Opening

Mission Log:

Once again, an Away Team was lead down to the ‘other’ Veracruz on the planetary surface in order to try and find a way out of their predicament. With VADMR Randt directing, FLT CPT Rhode-Randt-Mistwallow with the aid of Aziz restored some power and systems to the wreck. At this point CPT McCellan and CMDR Salmson attempted to data mine OPs consoles and items around them. CMDR Jameson and CMDR Bechir did the same with Tactical/Security and via rerouting INTEL to another console respectively. CMDRE Dagger worked command consoles and sciences stations to attempt the same affect. All of these attempts resulted mostly in failure.

Eventually, the idea of checking the USS Veracruz flight recorder was suggested and with Aziz activating the flight recorder button and CMDR Bechir controlling the image via Tricorder the first actionable information was provided as per the following:

<Recorded Viewscreen Engaged>

The viewscreen flickers in and out before finally settling in to show an image of the bridge with the crew moving around the bridge, although the image is a bit static-y and distorted from a combination of impact damage and expose to the elements for decades.

The ship appears to be under normal flight modes when suddenly and without warning a wormhole appears. The ship is shaking as an order to raise shields is given. Lt Cmdr Jamison reports shields are off-line as Fleet Captain Brit reports that the ship is in a temporal wormhole traveling backwards in time. He begins counting in decades as Cmdr Salmson does what can be done to keep the ship in the center of the wormhole.

"Forty years, Fifty years. Sixty years. Sev..." Then as quickly as it appeared the ship exits the wormhole right in the middle of an asteroid field. Before anyone can react, the ship impacts against several larger asteroids, causing multiple explosions around the bridge as the saucer is torn from the primary hull of the ship.

Several outer panels explode, including the duty stations of Fleet Captain Brit and Cmdr Bechir. Multiple support beams over the aft part of the bridge collapse as well, striking both Fleet Captain Rhode-Randt and Aziz. Both Kinney and Aryela begin to get up to check on Moon and Skot respectively as another beam falls, striking them both, with Aryela being hit harder.

As helm works to regain limited control, the warp core explodes in the secondary hull, both knocking out the main viewscreen and sending the saucer section spinning into the atmosphere. Collision alerts begin sounding until the impact onto the surface sends the remaining crew crashing to the floor.

Both Lt Cmdr Jameson and Cmdr Salmson are now motionless on the floor. As Dr McKay moves to check Cmdr Salmson a piece of the transparent aluminum falls directly onto them both.

Kinney then staggers up to get to Moonprince and Aziz, bleeding heavily as he sees their lifeless bodies. He then picks up a tricorder from the floor and turns in on as the flight recorder goes dark.

<Recorded Viewscreen Ends>

At this point, the assembled Away Team became fully aware of what they were up against and redoubled their efforts to find useful information. It was suggested that critical information be gathered and stored on the still live Veracruz in orbit, so when the events did take place more information was left to the crew to avoid the situation and end the temporal loop. With this in mind, VADMR Randt stated that he would record specific information on a PADD. In the search through the ship, that PADD was found by the bones of the Vice-Admiral and the playback was employed:

<Voice Recording - Voice of Vice Admiral Kinney Randt>

"This is the final log of the USS Veracruz. We have struck a temporal wormhole, and could not engage temporal shields from inside the wormhole. We are...christ, I don't know, I think Skot said 60 or 70 years in the past, so no one will be looking for us here. I don't think anyone else survived anyway, so it doesn't really matter now."

"If anyone finds this, The coordinates should be saved on the helm panel, It must...must be destroyed..."

<Voice Recording Ends>

Coordinates were found in the Helm module by CMDR Salmson while a plan to seal the Temporal Wormhole was created by CMDR Aryela. Work between all stations to map the coordinates, conserve the massive energy needed, and properly target the wormhole took place. CMDR Aryela used the science station and the deflector array to close the wormhole while only a minor Temporal Wave was emitted that easily was deflected by CMDR Jameson. The temporal wave passed through unoccupied space without effect.
