The Lotus Eaters | SD211207

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.

A federation Xenobiology survey on planet FGQC-000001 failed to log its weekly report to the Astraios Sciences Division. The mission did not respond when hailed on deep space comms. USS Neil Armstrong under the acting command of Lt. Commander Soulstar was sent to re-establish contact with the mission.

A ground team led by Science Officer Jenaea Resident beamed down to the planet to investigate.

They discovered four of the original eight science officers milling around the labs. The whereabouts of the other four are unknown. None of the officers they encountered were coherent, appearing to be under the influence of hallucinogenic substances. In conversation they referred repeatedly to a person named “Jason”, although there is no one of that name listed on the mission manifest. There is a documented native plant species named Jasonii mirabilus (a local variant of Acid Lotus) which was being studied in the lab. Whether these names are linked is unknown.

Chief Engineer Franklin and Intel Officer Callypso experienced mild psychoactive symptoms after being exposed to aerosols issuing from a native fungi. Samples of this fungi and other interesting plant materials have been collected for study. Two of the survey crew (Ensign Sama Sama and Ensign Kim Korora) were also beamed up for medicals, instigated by Dr Catteneo. On arrival in the transporter room both scientists collapsed and were rushed to sick bay.

We now await the outcome of Dr Catteneo’s medical investigation and science reports on the flora samples collected. We uploaded all mission logs from the labs to our ships computer and these too are being analysed.
