MISSION 220729 : Intruder, Pt.II

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

Senior officers met to discuss the Intruder tethered to our space station. The motives of this strange alien were (and are still) a mystery. At some point during the previous night the oblate sphere hanging off starboard had transformed into a neon echo of the SS Astraios.

Over the course of our meeting replicas of crew began appearing in the room—five copies of Lt. Maven, each claiming to be the “real” XO, arguing over what should be done to the other copies. The alien’s ability to create “avatars” indistinguishable from a real person, right down to the genetic level, is uncanny, or appears to be so.

It was then revealed that Cmdr. Soulstar was being imitated by the entity mimicking her appearance and mannerisms. Intelligence officer Quandrii concluded that the intruder seemed to be amusing itself with our discomfort and suggested to those present that they ignore its various parlour tricks and find tedious tasks to perform.

Her conclusions were quickly borne out. After a spell observing the disinterested crew the alien departed. Onboard weapons, defence and vehicular systems were immediately restored to working order.

We have been left shaken by this encounter. This alien penetrated our secure space and accessed the computer and other systems with far too much ease, giving an appearance of almost supernatural powers. However a forensic analysis of the station’s computer has raised another possibility; that the alien was never more than a sophisticated projection and our sensory equipment was tampered with to provide readings that suggested otherwise. If this is correct our computational systems were hijacked rather too easily.

The matter is now in the hands of the intelligence branch and technical specialists to determine what really happened.
