110814 "Super Virus (I)" USS Argonaut 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.

Sector Commander's Log
SS Astraios Ready Room
Stardate 110812
Position: Orbit of Astraios Prime
================

I have received a disturbing report through secure channels from a system which is at least 4 days travel from Astraios Prime at high warp. It was charted as KP442. An extremely contagious and lethal virus has spread from a small mining colony located one of the three moons to the sparsely populated Class L planet below, causing widespread panic. Twenty-nine colonists have died and at least fifty more reported ill, the entire system is under self-imposed quarantine but authorities fear they cannot control the situation. I have ordered the Intrepid Class USS Argonaut NCC-74398, under command of engineer LT Cmdr Karl Quar, to proceed with all speed to assess the situation and offer assistance. A team of science, medical and security officers from SS Astraios have also been assigned to the mission.

Since it will take some time for the Argonaut to reach KP442, we have contacted USS Faithful, our small runabout, currently on security patrol on the far border of the Tarkaar Nebula, requesting they proceed posthaste to KP442 to obtain samples of the virus and then rendezvous with the Argonaut.

As an added note, here in the Astraios Sector I have given orders that security is to check the logs of all trading vessels in our vicinity to ensure that no one who has visited KP442 is permitted access to the Sector until we know more about this illness.

Captain’s Log
USS Faithful
Stardate 110814
Position: 14.68 LY Trailing Astraios System
================

Log entry:

We received orders from Sector Commander Poison Toocool to change our heading and assist with a situation in a nearby system. We headed for the mining moon of KP442. We have only a small crew on board, and, in the absence of qualified medical and scientific personal, our goal was to collect samples of the virus for analysis. We briefly spoke with Lt. Argyl, in charge of the health service at the moonbase, overwhelmed by this sudden outbreak, as well as the military commander of the base, Commander Shotkay. No ships are permitted to enter or leave the system at the current time. But we convinced them that the best help we could give them was to bring samples immediately to the Argonaut for analysis and return as soon as possible with a vaccine and an effective therapy. The samples were stored in sealed containers and we are on route to rendezvous with LT Cmdr Quar and the Argonaut.

Log Entry:

Our Captain set a course for the KP442 Sector, not far from our position, in an attempt to get a sample of the Virus, that already killed so many miners. I accompanied our Captain, both in protective suits, to the surface, where we met Cmdr Shotkay and Doctor Argyl. They expected more than just a virus collect from us, and tried to keep us there, but the diplomatic skills from our captain convinced them we would do more in our advanced technical Argonaut labs for them than by staying in that mining outpost. So we departed again to meet the USS Argonaut, at maximum warp, with a few well quarantined containers of Virus samples for our science and medical team.
