It has been quite the eventful last couple months on board the SS Peedy Thor. From random sabotage and unscheduled trips for the stations orbit to medical malpractice. It is hopefully back to business as usual aboard the station.

The Science team has requested to collect some plant samples from the surface of Pinastri IV (Pinastri Prime). There seems to be some unusual characteristics that they want to examine more closely. The hydroponics bay has been redesigned a bit to incorporate some more quarantine functionality into it as well as a lab area for them to work. The request has been granted and the science team will be escorted by the 16th Marine Detachment. The ground facility remains empty due to some environmental concerns, so no one ever moved into it. There has been some reports of life signs being detected during routine scans of the planet. Not sure if these are sensor ghosts or not, but better to be safe than sorry.

In the meantime, I have been requested, by the Trill Symbiosis Commission to perform the Zhian'tara ceremony. For those that do not know that is the rite of closure for Trills that recently were joined. During the rite, the personalities and memories of the previous hosts are telepathically transferred from the host to the bodies of voluntary friends by a Guardian. The Guardian role will be performed by my new Trill friend Aedan OBroin. He is the emissary to the Symbiosis Commission. While in this ceremony the hosts personalities assert themselves and the new host can then meet and interact with the previous hosts. The objective is to allow the new host to understand more completely how the past hosts influence the new hosts. (This is one of the species exposure RP's we will be doing every so often.)

The morning was filled with crew scurrying about attending to regular duties as usual. Today was a different sort of day for the crew. We have an emissary from the Symbiosis Commission here to perform the Zhan'tara ceremony. Many of the crew have not seen this ceremony and are full of anticipation for something different. I would imagine for many it was more of a free meal and a show sort of thing, but the hopes are they enjoy it all the same.

After our normal Senior Staff Briefing, we all convened to the Holodeck for the ceremony. Stepping inside, I can see why it took our Holodeck Techs several days to construct this single chamber. The details were astounding from the colorful banners to the movement of Makala outside the glass. It was almost like they had to create an entire planet for this one chamber. Aedan OBroin was already there waiting to greet us and get us into place for our ceremony. Commodore Toocool, FCaptain Mistwallow, and Lt Cmdr Buttons were all ushered to their places at the three corners of the altar.

Aedon began the ceremony with a not so brief exhibit of what the ceremony entailed and some of the histories behind it for our guests. He explained what we would be doing and why. As he began the ceremony, he placed one hand behind my head one behind FCaptain Mistwallow's head and began his Trill chat for transfer of personality and memories from me to FCaptain Mistwallow. He finished the transfer with some questions to ensure the transfer was complete. Upon being satisfied with the transfer being a success he moved on to the next one. Following the transfer of Galin into FCaptain Mistwallow, he continued with the transfers of Arion into Lt Cmdr Buttons, and Tabora into Commodore Toocool, in the same fashion.

With the transfers being complete, I stepped to Cmdr Lombardia and Major Delgotti. I instructed Cmdr Lombardia to prepare the Science team for beam out awaiting the all clear from the Marines commanded by Major Delgotti. Major Delgotti was instructed to assemble the Marine squad to beam down and secure the area for the Science teams arrival and continue with escorting the Science team during their away mission.

Once the business for today had been dispensed, I returned to the now Galin, Arion, and Tabora. I began to ask questions that had been concerning me about each of their additions to my personality. Arion has added a fancy for the arts and a deeper appreciation for the situation with Dr. Carmona that recently transpired concerning the implantation. Tabora has added a bit of sternness and a drive for success that I previously lacked, although that is the most concerning. How far would I go to achieve the success of a mission or in life for that matter now? Galin has added a much-needed grounding effect to my personality. Although being more straightforward and not "sugar coating" the truth may get me into trouble at some point.

The Marine squad beams down to the surface. As the beam clears they see an area of absolute splendor in color and ancient ruins. They begin to spread out in the standard diamond formation and clear the beam down area. Signaling the transporter chief they are ready for the Science team, they begin to beam down two at a time. Cmdr Lombardia passes out the Padd's containing the information on the plant and how to locate them. He begins to lead the expedition into the new lands that have grown since the completion of the Ground Facility. These seem to be much older plants than the ones that were previously here. Could the volcano eruption have caused some dormant plant life to spring to life?

They move as a solid group letting the Marines stay as a protective shield around them, circling them on all sides, sweeping left to right and up and down. They move to the first plant and begin to examine it with their tricorders. The DNA pairs in this plant are totally unbelievable. They possess 6 times the structure of a human or a normal carbon-based lifeform. Deciding the danger is negligible, they transport the first sample aboard the station into a containment bed that has been set up in Botany on the Science Deck.

They continue on deciding there seems to be three different variations of the plant and a sample from each would suffice. Beaming the second one then the third one. Satisfied that they had enough samples they begin the trek back to the original beam in sight. Once they reach the site, they inform the transporter chief they are ready to beam up. "Unfortunately," says the transporter chief, "I am unable to get a solid lock on your bio-sign's. I suggest you make your way to the Ground Facility and use the transporter there. In the meantime, I will try to clear this up just in case." Hearing this the Science team begins to get a bit nervous. Stuck on the planet not sure if they can get the power back on to the Ground Facility in order to beam out. What awaits them inside the Ground Facility. We know there are life signs that have been detected. Were these really sensor ghosts or actual creatures on the planet.

The Marines move with the Science team towards the Ground Facility. Trying to locate the hologram of a rock, at the entrance, that conceals the location of the airlock to the facility. Finding it, the Science team deactivates the holo-emitters. One of the Marines begin to hack the lock on the airlock and soon the door hisses open. The Marines enter the Ground Facility leaving the Science team outside, where they have already cleared.

Stepping out of the entrance corridor onto the carpeted surface of the Ground Facility, the Marines note a sudden drop in temperature from what it was outside. Moving forward, fanning out in a line formation, they move across the reception area of the facility. The door to Medical slides open about half way and two of the Marines step inside to clear the rooms as the rest of the team stands outside. The two Marines, inside of Medical, sweeps through the main sickbay area, then the quarantine area, and finally the Medical Lab. Picking up nothing they slide back through the half-open door and report all clear in Medical.

Stepping slowly forward they reach Engineering. They shift into an arrow formation and step through the already open door in Engineering. Phaser blasts begin to insue around the first few Marines through the door. Major Thorgrimmson dives between the bulkhead and the M/ARA control console. Seeing a dismayed 2nd LT Skytate, Thorgrimmson grabs him and pulls him into cover. The rest of the Marine team take positions on either side of the Engineering doorframe and get into position to return fire.

Major Thorgrimmson turns to the 2nd Lt and orders him to stay in cover and lay down covering fire. The Major then slips out to the corner to inspect the situation before returning fire. He yells to Major Delgotti that "We are caught in a crossfire, one on the forward catwalk and two on the aft catwalk." Upon saying this, the Marines all begin to take positions to subdue the crossfire. A few questions run through Major Delgottis mind, who are these people and how did they get Starfleet Type III phaser rifles?

Now in position, they begin to fire in a crossfire of there own from the main door and from the Major Thorgrimmson within Engineering. Catching the intruders off guard with the amount of sheer firepower being unleashed at them. After several minutes of exchanging fire, the apparent leader of these people calls out to his fellow comrades, "Cease fire, they are a stronger force and we will never defeat them this way." Upon hearing this the others stop firing and remain in cover. The Marines ceasefire as well and begin to shuffle into Engineering and up the catwalk stairs. Rifles trained on the intruders they order them to drop weapons and lay face down on the floor.

Major Delgotti taps her combadge," Delgotti to Lombardia, all clear, the threat has been contained." Hearing this Cmdr Lombardia lets out a small sigh as he heard the weapons fire exchange and imagined the worst of outcomes. Moving the Science team inside, Cmdr Lombardia then taps his combadge," Lombardia to SS Peedy Thor, the threat has been contained, we have prisoners." A familiar voice is heard over the combadge traffic, it was Commodore Stormchyld. "Good work all, we will beam down Security officers to maintain the threat get the power back on down there and come home." Stormchyld pronounced. "Aye sir, be home shortly," Lombardia replied.

Cmdr Lombardia got the Science team to work figuring out why there was minimal power to the systems on the Ground Facility. As none of them were Engineers it would take a bit to figure it out. They discovered a bashed in control panel on the EPS relay controls. Bypassing the control, power began to slowly come back to full power throughout the Facility. As soon as power had returned Security officers began to beam down through the Facilities transporter. The Security officer rounded up the intruders and lead them to the holding brig on the Facility. One Marine was left at the brig to watch the intruders, 2nd LT Skytate.

Watching the comings and goings of the Security Officers, the leader of the intruders mapped out in his head the predictable patterns that presented themselves. Waiting for the precise moment he pulled out a knife that had been concealed. As none of the Security or Marines had searched him it was not hard to conceal the blade. He pried open the panel to the forcefield doors and began to yank wires out of it till the forcefield went down. Leaping from the door he caught the Marine off guard, injuring him with a few quick lacerations. The leader and one of his followers made their escape, running through the airlock door and disappearing into the wild underbrush that covers this area. As Security Officer's began to search the underbrush and surrounding area, Cmdr Lombardia beamed the away team and Marines, three at a time in an effort to conserve power, back to the station.

Cmdr Rich Lombardia

"I was present for the Trill Zhian'tara ceremony for Commodore Stormchyld. This is to conclude his joining. Following the ceremony, I was to lead a science team to the Pinastri Prime to collect three plant samples. Marines from the 16th detachment were to accompany us and check the ground facility. There have been intermittent life signs. It is unknown if they are sensor ghost or living beings.

The collection of the plant samples went well. They were easy enough to find due to growth at the base of enormous trees. During the collection, we received word that the station was unable to maintain a transporter lock and we needed to utilize the ground facility transporters to beam up.

I asked the Marines to secure the station. During their investigation, they were fired upon by three unknown assailants. Meanwhile, the transporters had no power due to the entire facility being in a power saving mode. The attackers were occupying engineering which made it more difficult as we needed access to restore power. The battle was brief but difficult as the attackers had the high ground. The marines took casualties and I myself was injured. They did manage to defeat the attackers and secure them in the ground facility brig.

Power was restored to the station and we were able to return to Peedy Thor. A security detachment was beamed down to process the prisoners and investigate the matter. I confirmed the samples made it to the science lab then briefed the Commodore before heading to sickbay."

Lt Cmdr Brittany Buttons (bit0honey)

"I participated in Commodore Stormchyld Rox’s Zhian'tara ceremony by being a vessel for one of the past Host personalities of the Rox symbiont. I shared time with Arion, who was a medical doctor, diplomat, and painter.

The sensation of the priest? Ambassador? Aedan performed the transfer was like a rush of weightlessness then falling from a height. I felt disoriented for a few moments and then kind of distance as if I was removed from myself and merely observing, which I suppose I was. The connection felt tenuous as if I had resisted at all the spell would be broken instantly. Fortunately, my Companions Guild studies have me well versed in the meditational arts, and I was able to breathe through the vague smothering feeling and allow Arion as much time as was needed.

I get the sense that not all is happy amongst the mix of personalities in the Commodore’s head. Arion seemed to feel a certain distaste for the past host Tabora, for instance. She seemed to feel like she had little use for him as a whole, but agreed to disagree for the sake of the new Host. I was exposed to a series of... Impressions? Images? Hard to explain what all happened there, but Arion shared visions of her past and glimpses of what her existence was like now. I will need to contemplate these images further in my daily practice in order to more fully absorb them, but she and I have quite a bit in common, even to the itching in my fingers to paint the lovely holo landscape of Trill outside the ritual chamber.

Major Kiara Delgotti (Kiara1.noel)

Went to secure the Science department and went under fire and had a blast (literally) clearing rooms and I hope that We get to do more with the Marines and the Fleet working together

Major Lucius Abernathry (lucius.wylder)

At 1300, we gathered for a briefing on both the mission and the ceremony that CMDRE Stormchild would be involved in. By 1400, the away team lead by CDR Lombardia beamed to the planet's surface. Marine personnel were deployed in a one on one bodyguard formation and proceeded to secure the Fleet personnel. Upon entering the land installation, we were engaged by 3-4 persons of an unknown nature. They were subdued after an exchange of phaser fire and secured in the brig with 2LT Wingate left to guard them. The prisoners had not been properly searched managed to subdue the Lieutenant and escape. In light of this officer's observations on the planet, further training in small arms tactics and urban assault are needed for both Fleet and Marine personnel.

Lt Isis Gaelyth

Science requested an away team beam to the surface of Pinastri Prime. Our interest was botanical. In our data from surface scans, we noted one particular plant that has unusual characteristics and wanted further study. It is relatively rare according to sensor counts. We did locate three in a general area near the waterway, leading me to conclude it may prefer moist ground and low altitude. Samples of each plant were taken. Hoping no harm was done. My escort and I returned to the Starfleet ground facility to go back to Peedy Thor. We found transporters and communications offline and when someone went to access power controls in Engineering, intruders were discovered. A fight ensued and some injuries occurred. During this time I accessed the transporter console and make some adjustments to programming with my tricorder, in order to contact SS Peedy Thor for assistance. Intruders were captured. I returned to Peedy Thor with my samples. In the lab I examined the plants, finding their genetic makeup similar to the Terran Dionaea muscipula. Fascinating.
