110703 "Operation Doppelganger" PART II

Starfleet re-established its first Colony in the Gamma Quadrant on Astraios Prime on stardate 110111. SS Astraios is a space-station in high orbit above the planet Astraios Prime, to help with its protection and provide a base for the local fleet. UFS Astraios Colony and SS Astraios are tasked with the mission of ‘broadening horizons’ within the Gamma Quadrant, by exploring strange new worlds and seeking out new civilisations.

The opportunity for roleplay Missions is enhanced by the ready availability of a wide variety of locations. As well as the space station SS Astraios and on board NPC ships, including our flagship the Galaxy-class USS Neil Armstrong, there are locations on Astraios Prime (both within the Colony’s many Starfleet regions and on the rest of the planet) and more, both on 3rd Rock Grid and other Grids via the Hypergrid.

In addition to role-play, UFS Astraios hosts a weekly Starfleet Boogie each Tuesday and various events throughout the year.

Roleplay Times: Friday Noon SL

Captain's Log: Stardate 1100703
Alia Soulstar

Our ongoing examination of the altered Workbee was interrupted by high-level electromagnetic activity around the Workbee and on the planet surface in the region of Astraios' Iconian Gateway. A representative member of a hitherto unknown alien species (the Xerx) transported onto our space station having passed through the Gateway. Attempts to communicate with this alien were unsuccessful until Lt Herbit, an empath, made non-verbal contact. This Xerx quickly gained our language. He appeared benign and offered to open diplomatic channels between our and his species. In line with the Prime Directive, Astraios is preparing a diplomatic mission to the Xerx'esh home planet.

Name: Lt. Davido Herbit
Role: XO

We have taken the Workbee to SS Astraios for further investigation. The ship with the strange alien technology attempted to penetrate our systems. Engineering and Science were working together to stop this when an alien enters the bridge. General panic ensued. Security ordered aditional security personnel to help us.

Very quickly it appeared that the alien didn't have any bad intentions and then I felt it. A strange feeling what I haven't felt before in my life—a highly sensitive silicon-based life form communicating through me. My emphatic abilities received thoughts/feelings from the being telling us that it did't want to do us harm. It also told us that it liked our motives and has been studying us for a long time. I am unsure but believe he also said something about the Workbee being important.

Soon it was already able to communicate with all of us verbally. The captain asked a few questions but I told her to be careful with first contact according the Prime Directive.

Aboard Astraios space station with the workbee tethered to the station and engineers working to find out how it was able to affect and change others systems, Science reported a ion build up. Security asked if the planet below should be warned and where the station should raise shields, the Captain said yes to the shields but thought that the planet with its magnetosphere should be ok. A distrubance was noticed by Security on the planet near to the Gateway there, and this distrubance then moved towards the station penetrating our shields. An intruder alert was sounded and teams were ordered to search both the station and the planet below. Next we started to hear strange noises on the bridge and it was found that the intruder was already on the bridge with us. Science and Security started the stations translators in an effort to communicate with the alien. Lt. Herbit was able through part telepathy and part empathy to talk to the alien who was also trying to learn our language. He told us that he came in peace and that there were lots of his people on his home planet, and that he wanted to help us.

Security Log
LTjg. D. Barbosa

On SS Astraios bridge, while running diagnostics on the WorkBee, severe ionic activity was picked up by our scanners. The captain put us at high alert state and moved the Worker Bee to a safe distance from the station. The deflector shields were not able to stop an intruder into our Space Station, and our security teams were not able to capture that entity. Despite all our security precautions, the intruder made its way to the Bridge. He did not seam dangerous and showed no bad intentions.

LT Herbit, being half Betazoid, managed to make a direct mind connection to our intruding visitor, and we found out he was a very quick learner of our own language. The Alien told us it was from an unexplored (by us) region, and they were watching us from there quite a long time. He offered help to solve some of our problems we have here at the Star Station and the Colony.

On the space station SS Astraios we were trying to understand the the readings from the work bee. An increased ionic activity and other strange things occurred around the work bee, while energy surges appeared on the planet surface. We discovered an alien intruder who appeared on the bridge! We took precautions and raised weapons, but as it was not attacking us we presumed it was friendly. Science worked hard translating its sounds. Meanwhile we discussed the theory that it had jumped though the Iconian Gateway using the ionic energy as a kind of energy converter.
Lt. Herbit volunteered as a Betazoid to try telepathy with the alien. After a lot of communicating back and forth we slowly began to understand what it wanted. It wanted to know why we pollute space with our technology, meaning the work bee. It expressed a desire to enter into peaceful diplomacy between our civilizations.

We have had more informations about this strange Worbee, and still we have not the whole key of the story !

As we were approaching again the workbee, our sensors reported further ion storm activity; fortunately, this time it has been without any damage. An alien intruder appeared on deck attempting vocal communications: this was a curious noise, something that we did not succeed to relate to any known language. Mr Herbit (XO) and science officer Sofrosta Fleury worked hard to try to understand the message. Was it a peacefull or a distress or an agressive one ?

Following scientific analysis we determined this alien was a silicate based life form. While we were asking ourself what such lifeform can eat (maybe sand), Mr Herbit detected some telephatic waves emited by the alien and succeded to begin to understand his communication.
All aspects of the alien telepatic conversation have still to be analysed in details, but i guess it will bring to us more surprises. A diplomatic mission is being prepared for the alien's home world.
