110821 - "Super Virus (II)" 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.

Roleplay Times: Friday Noon SL

The sitation at KP442 remains critical. UFS runabout USS Faithful, under command of John Shrouder, obtained samples of the virus from Dr Argyl at the mining colony two days ago and is now moving at top speed to rendezvous with the Intrepid Class USS Argonaut NCC-74398, under command of engineer LT Cmdr Karl Quar, presently at least 24 hours from KP442. I expect the ships to meet each other within the next few hours. Argonaut will then continue at high warp to the mining colony, using the time to research the virus and hopefully come up with a cure.

USS Faithful will remain at the rendezvous point and resume security patrols until this situation is resolved.

Log entry:

After 2 days at high warp, sensors are discovering the UFS runabout USS Faithful closing the gap to the USS Argonaut very soon now. We drop out of Warp and our Captain orders to transfer the container holding the virus samples to a well quarantined transporter room, where science teams can transfer it to our medical lab. Captain Quar thanks Captain Shrouder for the delivering of the container, and orders him to keep with the USS Faithful at the rendezvous point and resume security patrols until this situation is resolved.

USS Argonaut continues to travel to the miners colony at Warp 7, the fasted we can hold for a trip of 2 days. Science and Medical starts to examine the virus samples in an attempt to find a cure for the affected miners. Our captain keeps in open channel with the laboratory in sickbay, to give guidance to the teams, and coordinates the search for a solution.

The high contamination power of the virus was proved when the (bio) gel packs for powering the left Nacelle was affected, and we nearly dropped out of Warp.

We were lucky our captain kept his head cool, and ordered to replace the gel packs, saving our Warp speed capability.

Doctor Markus and Civilian Scientist MR Bravin found out, the virus was close to a variant of Cholera, with an alien ingredient. During the process, our Doctor found out the water supplies were contaminated, and ultraviolet radiation for the decontamination was needed.

A possible cure could be the separation of the 2 ingredients, using the bio filters of the transporter buffers. I quote our doctor: "maybe we can filter out the alien parts and treat the Cholera with vaccine".

Then we needed to find a way to deliver our cure to the mining colony quickly, since the virus was spreading very fast over there.

Scientist Bravin and doctor Markus suggested to send the colony the necessary info, so they could start using their transporters to cure the most affected miners, till we arrive and help them with our transporters to eliminate all virus activity.

To speed up, USS Argonaut went to Warp 9, only going down to cool the warp engines at lower speed, then resuming the top speed again. I know we are burning out the dilithium crystals, but they are replaceable, a miners life is not.

I suggested we use a nearby partly intact transwarp corridor, but captain Quar found this much too dangerous. So, USS Argonaut at nearly 20 hours away of the mining colony moon.

Every minute counts to save lives!

We have approached successfully the USS Faithful. The meeting point was at 124-45-63. The virus container was beamed from the runabout to our transporter room. The first analyses are showing this virus looks like the old Cholera one, but with an alien variant. Science suggest to use the bio-filters of our transporters to eliminate the alien part and to heal the Personnel with the classic Cholera vaccine. Doctor Markus has calculated this solution has a 99 % probability of success.

We need now some time to organize a transport schedule of all the Mine Personnel...

The Intrepid class USS Argonaut met with the USS runabout USS Faithful and transferred the virus in a sealed container to the starship from the Faithful under the Command of John Shrouder which will stay at the rendezvous point until Argonaut returns from the mining colony. The container was taken by transporter to sickbay and the department was sealed in the hopes of containing the virus. Both the Medical and Science departments then began to work to find a cure for the miners of KP442. However it was discovered several hours later that the virus had escaped and made its way to the gel packs of the ship. The Captain ordered that all gel packs should be replaced after a suggestion from the medical staff, and the work was began. It was found that the virus was very much like Cholera but was mixed with some alien bacteria. As a stop gap the medical staff suggested that the cholera vaccine be tested on the infected gel pack, this was done with good results but no cure. After more work between the science and medical departments it was suggested that to cure the virus the infected patients should be transported to the ship with all precautions, and that the biofilters on the transporter would then filter out the alien virus and medical staff would administer the cholera vaccine to the patients before they were transported back down to the colony. We are still many hours away from the colony and the departments will continue to work to find out if there is a better way to treat the virus but in the mean time hope rests on the biofilters and cholera vaccine.

Log entry:

The USS Argonaut, under the command of Lt. Cmdr. Karl Quar, sped with all haste to rendezvous with the runabout USS Faithful. Following the necessary health and safety precautions being implemented, samples of the virus that had been collected by Dr. Argyl were transferred from the USS Faithful to the USS Argonaut.

Medical Staff aboard the USS Argonaut carried out extensive tests and analysis of the virus. Along with information obtained from Dr. Argyl on the miner's symptoms, the initial conclusions pointed to a cholera type virus. This information was shared with the Science team with a view to coming up with a cure.

Further tests showed that an anti cholera vaccine was not completely effective in dealing with the virus. Further analysis by Medical and Science staff discovered that there was an alien strain present. It was considered that the best way of dealing with the problem would be to use the bio-filters on the ship's transporters to remove the alien strain. The plan being to teleport the miners up to the ship (thereby removing the alien virus strain in so doing) and vaccinate them before returning them to the colony.

Suspecting that the drinking water may be a likely cause of the outbreak, Science recommended that the water supply on the colony be sterilized using ultraviolet radiation prior to drinking in order to contain the current outbreak and prevent a further outbreak occurring in the future.

USS Argonaut is currently nearing the colony where it is hoped that the "cure" will prove to be successful.................only time will tell.
