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.

As we were heading back to SS Astraios, 3 Treman ships dropped out of warp in front of us and also headed for the station. We went to Yellow alert. The Treman pirates seemed to ignore our presence.

Following the treman ships, we elevated to Red Alert and launched a probe to tail them, in the event they blinded our scanning abilities again.

We notified SS Astraios that there was an attack group heading for them but it wasn't long before we'd received a message from Astraios that they'd lost their sensors. Engineering advised the station about what to do about regaining their sensors. We began targeting the ships with phaser fire. If we could disable their warp capabilities, they may just turn around and head back to Treman.

We continued firing, whittling away at their shield strength. The lead ship was beginning to vent plasma and it was evident they had lost the ability to go to warp. The ship turned around and headed back to Treman. It was obvious that the remaining 2 ships were intent on causing much damage to SS Astraios, realizing that Astraios' sensors were out of commission. At any rate, they still continued to ignore the Armstrong.

We got the message from Astraios that their sensors had been repaired and that they were returning fire. We continued with our phaser barrage. Once the two remaining pirates discovered that Astraios had operational sensors, they also turned back toward Treman. One ship was also venting plasma, and it became evident that they were planning a self-destruct.

The pirate ship's warp drive went critical and was soon followed by a brilliant explosion. Altogether, we had destroyed 2 Treman Pirate ships, SS Astraios was safe, and the Armstrong had some minor repairs we were still working on.

Now, the question was- why did they attack the station?
