mission 220515 Planning an alliance

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.

After the J'Halidex attack on Treman Prime, and the kidnapping of the Treman Queen, Col. Nacca and his Lieutenant, Ray Dixon requested a meeting with our crew. Unfortunately, Capt. Vala was not able to attend, so Cmdr. Alia Soulstar chaired the meeting.

We discussed the previous meeting with the Queen, and that she had to reluctantly agree to share power with the Colonel. With her as a prisoner of the J'Halidex now, it was the Colonel who was in charge of Treman Prime.

Nacca indicated that he had recieved no terms from the J'Halid as of yet. No threats, no ransom demands, nothing. It was his thinking to destroy the J'Halidex distribution center on Treman IV but he thought better of it because that might jeopardize the Queen's saftey even more. Commander Soulstar reminded the Colonel that the primary motivation of her conference was the safety of Treman and her people.

She had told the Colonel that she was left with 2 choices in order to secure the alliance of the Federation. The first choice would be to agree to a binding truce with the Federation based on mutual commitments toward upholding that truce.

The second choice would be to form a constitutional monarchy where she would be bound to ratify any decisions that a parliament would come up with.

Tekkul said that the Queen was much more in favor of the first choice, even though it would mean that Treman would not become an actual member of the United Federation of Planets. Ray, at that point indicated that our first priority was to insure the safe return of the Queen. Considering that this was to be a mutual decision of both the Queen and the Colonel, it would not be possible without her being present, not to mention that Ray was totally loyal to the Queen.

The Commander stated that we were not (yet) at war with the J'Hallidex, so it would not be prudent to find her and go in with guns blazing. As she pointed out, the queen would never survive that sort of approach. So, we all agreed that the first step should be to discover the location of the imprisoned Queen. The Security Chief was not enthieusiastic about that and Lieutenant Dixon began to get riled about that. He decided to hold his temper and allow the negotiations to go on.

Colonel Nacca had correctly assumed that working together with the Quenn was the only way to achieve a unity of the Treman people. As for the J'Halid's silence, it was Col. Nacca's assumption that they were trying to build an air of trepidation among the Treman leadership. He likened it to psychological warfare and Commander Soulstar agreed. The meeting wrapped up with a decision to work on upgrading Col. Nacca's destroyers and providing training for his crews. It was decided that the USS Armstrong would contact the J'Halidex and arrange a meeting to discuss future operations, and to bring the Queen with them as part of that negotiation.
