MISSION 220715 : Intruder

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.

Alien - Intruder

A large rotating oval dropped out of hyperspace and tethered itself to SS Astraios. The station’s perimeter and onboard weapon defences powered down, affected by an external agency. All hand weapons, docked vessels and shuttlecraft were powered down at the same time. Scanning revealed it was not a spaceship or an organism. Crew on the engineering decks were mass transported to the shuttle bay by an unknown mechanism as an unidentified humanoid intruder appeared on Level 17.

Captain’s Log | Stardate 220715
We sealed off engineering. I led security chief Barbosa and operations officer Farrell down to engineering to confront the intruder. It was a hovering humanoid wearing a Starfleet admiral’s uniform and otherwise adorned in clown regalia. It identified itself as an avatar of a collective consciousness and identified the object tethered to Astraios as another avatar more familiar to its own species.

Our ensuing dialogue established that the entity shut down our defences and transported our engineering crew to clear a path for its arrival, to avoid what it termed “misunderstandings”. It had no interest in negotiating any form of treaty or retreat from our station, or identifying whether it was a friend or foe. It was neither aggressive, nor friendly. It suggested that we might be regarded as a form of entertainment. We argued that all sentient life has value beyond that demeaning metric and it departed to consider our point of view.

The oval avatar is still tethered to Astraios and our weapon systems remain inoperable with no damage for us to repair. There is nothing more we can do until this entity makes its intentions clear to us.
