110904 "Clueless" - 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
Commanding Officer: Alia Soulstar
Executive Officer: Ellemir Maven

I have received communication from USS Argonaut, they have arrived at the mining colony of KP442 and are proceeding to assist with the virus outbreak via use of ship’s transporters to remove an alien bacteria from infected personnel. The colony is small but it will take some time to beam everyone through the biofilters, inoculate them, and return them to the planet. Sufficient cholera vaccine was replicated. The water supply had been contaminated and the colony, with assistance from our engineers, is undertaking repairs and replacing parts so the reservoir is secure. It seems as though the situation is under control. We have contacted leaders throughout this area of the quadrant to inform as many colonies as possible about the virus and its cure.

Dr Genny7 Markus has been researching the alien bacteria that muted the cholera virus and determined that it likely did not occur naturally. I do not understand the science behind it but it seems very possible that the bacterial strain was created… for what purpose we cannot say for certain but… it could possibly be used for a form of germ warfare. That means the water supply of KP442 was perhaps deliberately sabotaged. We have no proof, yet, although research into genetic structure of the source alien bacteria may assist us to determine its origins.

It’s a mystery and we have few clues that make any sense at this point. I have instructed the Argonaut to conduct sensor sweeps and scan for warp signatures throughout the KP442 galaxy…

Log entry:

After having repaired the water systems of the mining colony, and while the cure of the mining moon personnel was in progress, we took the Argonaut and we patrolled into the KP442 system to find some warp signatures or other traces. Confirming to the last instructions we received, we wanted to identify who could have brought the virus. In space, we received a message from Doctor Argyl saying that the cure was happily ending and that patrollers have been sent to explore the whole moon surface, also to collect possible information about the virus arrival. Aboard ship, Mr Bravin detected some warp signatures. Following his first analysis, he would say they were unidentified.

We received also a message from one of the patrollers sent to explore the moon surface (Ensign Ross): he detected a damaged vessel with some crates around; this small ship was near a water pipe, distributing water from the mine to an advanced observation post ... in a deserted field of the moon. We got the coordinates from him. Miss Markus and Mr Bravin were sent to study this vessel and the containers. Doctor Markus concluded the crates were containing the alien element that was mixed with the cholera.

We are thinking that this double virus was directly thrown into the water pipe by some UFS alien enemies. We need now to identify them with certitude ...

The Argonaut is now orbiting around the KP442 mining moon; we are waiting further instructions before coming back to Astraios.

The USS Argonaut is still in orbit around the mining moon and we have just heard from Doctor (Tug) Argyl that 90% of the miners have now been treated by the transporters and the Cholera vaccine and are responding well, which is very pleasing to hear. Science Officer Bravin has been running scans of the moon and surrounding space and has found several warp signatures. Also Ensign Ross has reported from a shuttle near the moon's surface that he has found a damaged spacecraft and several containers. An away team of Ensign Bravin and myself have been transported down to the site of the damaged craft in hazard suits to meet with Ensign Ross to take samples from the containers in case they contain the virus used to contaminate the water supply of the colony. The Captain (LTCdr Quar) ordered that a force field be put in place in the cargo bay and once this was done the damaged craft and almost empty containers were transported back to the Argonaut for further investigation. After our return to the ship Ensign Bravin confirmed that he had found several warp signatures that matched with the five days that the damaged craft on been on the surface of the mining moon. It was also confirmed by the medical department that it was the virus that had been stored in the containers of the damaged ship.

Aboard the USS Argonaut, commanded by Lt.Cmdr. Quar, we followed orders to conduct sensor sweeps around KP442 looking for warp signatures. The purpose being to try and identify any ships who might have recently visited the mining colony and thereby get some idea of the possible identify of the culprits who contaminated the water supply.

In carrying out the sensor sweeps, I informed the Captain that I had identified several warp signatures in the area. I added that I was attempting to calculate which of those warp signatures fitted with the time frame for the contamination.

We were pleased to receive a message from the mining colony that our earlier treatment of the outbreak had been very successful.

We then received a message from Ensign Ross, who was conducting checks of KP442's moon. He reported that he had come across a small vessel on the moon's surface. The vessel appeared damaged and there were containers laying about.

The Captain ordered an Away-team, comprising Dr. Markus and myself, to beam down to the moon's surface and met up with Ensign Ross at the vessel's location.

Having observed the situation as regards the unidentified vessel and containers, the three of us agreed that we should recommend to the Captain that the vessel and containers be beamed up to the USS Argonaut (taking all necessary safety precautions) in order that further analysis can be carried out. The three of us beamed back to the ship and the vessel and containers were subsequently beamed up.
