110828 "Super Virus III" - 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

USS Argonaut will reach the colony soon. Everything is set to use the biofilters on the transporter to filter out the alien virus and medical staff is standing by to administer the cholera vaccine to the patients before they are transported back down to the colony. Suddenly the ship begins to lose speed and systems fail. With colonists depending on the ship to arrive and assist in saving lives... time is of the essence.

Log entry:

With only a few hours to reach the Mining Colony, we were happy to help end this plague soon. Then OPS warned the Warp engines were going to collapse. We dropped out of Warp Speed, and only on Impulse Power, it would take us ages to reach the Colony.

Engineering found out, we overheated the warp drives traveling mostly at Warp 9 for an extended period. Our doctor checked to be sure the bio packs, were not infected, we just needed to let the engines cool off.

Mister Bravin found a way to engage them again, and at low warp we continued our journey to the Miners Moon.

I was very cautious about possible bad guys traveling in this not so well charted sector of the Galaxy, and ordered OPS and Science to keep monitoring the scanners for possible enemy vessels.

Being able to use the repaired engines, we are now closing the Colony at Warp Speed 6, and prepare our Teleporters for beaming up the infected miners to cure them from the dreadful virus.

Log entry:

The mission began with the USS Argonaut still travelling at Warp 9 to the Mining Colony to help with the deadly virus which is infecting and killing many miners. The Medical Department is working around the clock to produce enough cholera vaccine to cure all the miners with the aid of the biofilters on the ships transporters. Suddenly the ship is starting to lose power to the warp engines, and it was decided between the Captain Ltjg Barbosa, Medical/Ops Ensign Markus and Civilian Scientist Bravin that the warp engines should be taken offline until engineering could come up with either an answer to the problem or a repair. After several scans and diagnostics it was found that the engines had overheated and needed rest before being able to continue. Captain Barbosa then ordered that the ship should continue on Impulse power until such time as the warp engines were safe to restart. We continued on Impulse and continued to scan the area of space in case of any alien ships. Engineering reported that the warp engines had cooled enough to be restarted and helm was ordered to go to Warp 1 and only increase when engineering said that it was safe to do so. We are now travelling at Warp6 again, and hope to reach the mining colony as quickly as we can in the hope of saving as many lives as possible.

Log entry:

I was invited aboard the USS Argonaut in order to be of assistance in dealing with the suspected cholera outbreak on the Mining Colony. We had been travelling at high warp towards the Colony for quite some time, when the ship's engines suddenly began to fail. We dropped out of warp in order that we could check the status of the engines. With the aid of the Engineering crew, I diagnosed that the engines had simply become overheated, due to running at high warp over too long a period.

I informed the Captain (Lt.Dolfke Barbosa) that we needed to let the engines recover for a while. She and the ship's doctor (Ensign Genny7 Markus) were both concerned that any delay would be endangering the lives of the miners. However, the Captain understood that to try and proceed without repair the engines could make matters worse. As soon as the engines had recovered, we continued towards the Mining Colony, steadily increasing our speed.

Along with the Engineering and Medical teams, I made good use of the time we had by ensuring that the transporters were ready for beaming up the miners to the ship.

I became concerned at the Captain's remark of the possibility of hostile aliens being in our vicinity. As such, I took her "suggestion" that I should keep monitoring the scanners for other vessels, very seriously!

We gradually managed to reach warp 6 and are now nearing the Mining Colony.
