Mission #261: His Majesty's Asteroid, Part I

USS Maxwell, NCC-21873, is a Nova-class science and survey vessel based out of Pinastri Colony on the Second Life Grid. We are currently a mission of exploration in the Hapke Cluster, an open star cluster of some 10,000 star systems. We are open to new crew! Please inquire with Captain Nora Gerhadsen or with Commander April Coswell. We are particularly interested in Science, Engineering and Operations officers.

Roleplay Times: Thursdays 6pm to 8pm SLT
Commanding Officer: Nora Gerhadsen
Executive Officer: April Coswell

Moderators: Nora Gerhadsen, JayceRebel, April Coswell

Mission Name: His Majesty's Asteroid, Part I

Story Concept: Nora Gerhadsen

The following information is IN CHARACTER information.

Location: Deep Space, enroute to the Hapke Cluster, Sylleran Sector Block

Alert Status: green

Having successfully rescued Dr. Edmund Selden and his family, and having gathered a great deal of data on the M-1765-791 planetary impact and nova, USS Maxwell is once again turning her bow toward the Hapke Cluster. We deposited the Seldens with a passing Federation packet ship, then are once more on our way. We are sure to make it this time! Hopefully nothing more will distract us on our way to Suban. But before we get going, we have a bit of piracy to attend to...

Commodore Nora Gerhadsen, USS Maxwell, Commanding


OOC Notes:

- This notecard was done after the fact.

- Congratulations to Lt. JG Northman! He was promoted and awarded the Shooting Star Award tonight.

- We're once again on our way to the Hapke Cluster. If you are good at building, please talk to me! I've got a job... Uh... Better make that Jobs... For you!

* These duties are very general ideas, feel free to add to them and fill things in.

--> We are a science and survey ship. That means we find weird stuff sometimes. Create! Let's see what we all can come up with!

* Please allow people to do their jobs and be thoughtful of the fact that people join departments and divisions to do their jobs. Try not to step on their functions. If you have something to help someone (advise that they may or may not follow) instead of saying something publically, it might be more useful to IM them and discuss it with them.

* Departments should be working together. There should be enough possibilities for everyone as long as they all work together and cooperatively. Do not be afraid to do OOC planning in IM.

* This is more or less freeform, but please don't have it as "Q did this". We need to get ourselves out of our own jams (not that this has ever been a problem with this crew).

Remember that the point of all this is to have fun! Good luck and have at!

Command Log:

Stardate: 200525

Location: Naablo System, Sector 008M

Alert Status: green

While enroute to the Hapke Cluster, USS Maxwell was ordered to divert to the Naablo System (M1765-1131) to investigate the possible loss of an Annari survey ship. The Annari, fond of long-range exploration, do not have a great track record in recent history with safety. It was their transwarp project, Project Ironforge, that recently caused a massive subspace rift from the vicinity of Pinastri in the Delta Quadrant nearly to Astraios in the Gamma Quadrant. Annari authorities reported to Starfleet that contact had been lost with their ship, and that furthermore there was evidence of an accident of some kind. The Annari vessel was using an nearby asteroid as a base.

The Naablo (M1765-1131) system

The Naablo parent star is G-type, and the system has seven planets. Of those, only one is a gas giant, and it is in the outermost orbit. Naablo Prime through VI are rocky. Naablo IV is class M, and has an orbital ring system. There is a single landmass, similar to Pangaea on early Earth. The inhabitants of Naablo IV are a humanoid species with technology at roughly the level of 18th century Earth. There is ample evidence of travel, including a network of roads, sizable coastal settlements, and the presence of facilities for the construction and storage of wooden wind-powered oceanic transports. The Annari were in the Naablo System to study this pre-warp population.

Upon arrival in the Naablo System, Maxwell proceeded to the asteroid, though there was a debris field further out. We found evidence that the Annari vessel had experienced a warp core breach. Detailed observations of the asteroid's orbital path established that the explosion had shifted the asteroid's orbit, sending it on an intersecting orbit with Naablo IV. Impact will occur in approximately three weeks. Given that the asteroid's diameter is 15 km, and its mass roughly 4.5 trillion tons, this impact is very likely to wipe out all life on Naablo IV. In the case of a naturally-occurring impact of this variety, the Prime Directive would require Starfleet to take no action. However, as this impact has been induced by some sort of Annari safety failure, it seems incumbent upon Starfleet to intervene if possible.

The asteroid is far too large for Maxwell to move it out of the way. This is a job more suited to a vessel that specializes in that sort of work. A call was put out to Starfleet Headquarters to request such a vessel make all haste to the Naablo System. The Fleet Tug USS Milo is currently underway.
