110717 - "Architecture of Tragedy" - SS Astraios Mission

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.

==========================

Security and Operations were receiving disturbing messages from their consoles, seemed like some aliens were intruding into the Colony and Space Station again, but now using a much more dreadful way to arrive here: the very well guarded Iconian Gateway!

As officer in command, I gave instructions, forming an away party to investigate what was happening to the Gateway. When we beamed to the secret area, we found 2 hostile Aliens there, Wami Fur and Nimi Wam.

As with the former visit of an alien, we were not able to communicate with them in spoken language, but the experience of that encounter helped our Engineering officer Karl Quar to build a morse code translator, so we could open a channel to the aliens.

We found out the destruction of our USS Condor was a mistake by some overactive guardian ships of theirs, and we could negotiate a rescue attempt for our Ambassador Utu dam Kotosklo. Alien Wami proposed to let two of our officers aboard their ship to get our Ambassador back again.

Personal note from Vice Chief Security: I'm not sure we can trust those Aliens, after all the first who came lured our USS Condor into that siege... Are we going to lose two fine officers, or will we be able to rescue our Ambassador?

We received a curious signal. After partial analysis we realized that this modulation actually conveyed instructions to a team responsible for an alien landing "where visitors can reach Astraios ground from far away".

We concluded that it could only be the Iconian gateway... and we transported ourselves there imediately. Two aliens were found in this place.

We knew it was useless to try to neutralize them: our phasers could only annoy them a bit... and so we were concerned for the safety of the colony.

We tried once again to initiate communication with these aliens. After various tests it has surprisingly been found that the aliens can understand the ancient Morse signals. We do not know how this is possible!

Using Morse code signals we asked their intentions. They assured us that they came in peace and when we asked why the scientific expedition, unarmed, was attacked, we had the following answer: it was a "mistake" of a member of the alien crew. We hope to have opened a door through which we can launch Ambassador Utu rescue...

The complete recording of the signals is currently under detailed study in the Sciences Department, we hope to get more information from it.

At the beginning of the mission we were at intruder alert with strange messages coming in to Security and Ops stations. It seemed that the intruders were trying to get into the colony and space station again by way of the secretly guarded Iconian Gateway on the planet. Three officers were transported down to the Gateway and there found two Xiraians named Wami Fur and Nimi Wam. We were once again unable to commuinicate with them until engineering Officer Karl Quar produced a morsecode translator.. Once the translator had been running for serveral minutes while Wami Fur and LT. Barbosa were talking we were finally able to understand each other. We told him of the attack and loss of our Science Vessel USS Condor, and that although we believed that the ship and its crew had been destroyed, it was also thought that Ambassador Utu dam Kotosklo had managed to escape in a runabout. We asked Wami Fur for permission to send another ship to try to rescue the Ambassador. He then offered to take two of our Officers with him on his ship to seach the area. Could this be a trap?
