Mission #230: Task Force Phoenix: Romulans in the Mist

USS Maxwell, NCC-21873, is a Nova-class science and survey vessel based out of Pinastri Colony on the Second Life Grid. We are currently a mission of exploration in the Hapke Cluster, an open star cluster of some 10,000 star systems. We are open to new crew! Please inquire with Captain Nora Gerhadsen or with Commander April Coswell. We are particularly interested in Science, Engineering and Operations officers.

Roleplay Times: Thursdays 6pm to 8pm SLT
Commanding Officer: Captain Nora Gerhadsen
Executive Officer: Commander April Coswell

Moderators: Nora Gerhadsen, JayceRebel, April Coswell

The following information is IN CHARACTER information.

USS Maxwell is chasing down clues to Commodore Gerhadsen's whereabouts, and is about to enter the Hapke Cluster near the Hapke 012 system. But there are some strange signals on sensors.

=============================================

In Service,
Commodore Nora Gerhadsen, USS Maxwell, Commanding (done after the fact)


OOC Notes:

- This notecard was done after the fact. This is the first mission in Task Force Phoenix!

* These duties are very general ideas, feel free to add to them and fill things in.

--> We are a science and survey ship. That means we find weird stuff sometimes. Create! Let's see what we all can come up with!

* Please allow people to do their jobs and be thoughtful of the fact that people join departments and divisions to do their jobs. Try not to step on their functions. If you have something to help someone (advise that they may or may not follow) instead of saying something publically, it might be more useful to IM them and discuss it with them.

* Departments should be working together. There should be enough possibilities for everyone as long as they all work together and cooperatively. Do not be afraid to do OOC planning in IM.

* This is more or less freeform, but please don't have it as "Q did this". We need to get ourselves out of our own jams (not that this has ever been a problem with this crew).

Remember that the point of all this is to have fun! Good luck and have at!

Commodore Nora Gerhadsen recording
=============================================

Captain's Log:

Stardate: 191007

Location: Edge of the Hapke Cluster, The Hapke 012 System (the Ffeeneth System on Subere charts), in orbit around Hapke 012 III (Ffeeneth III)

Alert Status: green

USS Maxwell has retrieved her commanding officer, Commodore Nora Gerhadsen, from the surface of Hapke 012 III, rescuing her and her Subere pilot from Romulans, whose presence in the area has not yet been fully explained. Maxwell participated in a battle against a Romulan warbird, and emerged victorious. The Romulans were encountered again on the planet's surface. They fought to the last, and would not surrender.

Events before the battle

Making her way to the Hapke Cluster to find further signs of the passage of Commodore Gerhadsen, USS Maxwell detected a signal consistent with the Commodore's Viridium patch moving at slightly less than Warp 7 toward the Hapke 012 system from deeper in the Hapke Cluster. It must be noted that Hapke 012 III (called Ffeeneth III in Subere charts) is rich in magnesite ores and other materials that tend to confuse sensors. Very soon after detecting this signal, Maxwell picked up the signal of a pursuing Romulan Bird of Prey.

Not long after picking up the Romulan's signal, Subcommander Varel, the commanding officer of the Bird of Prey, hailed the Maxwell on voice only, seeming to identify the Maxwell as IRW Tinnerix, the ship from which Maxwell crew retrieved the singularity warp core that the Maxwell has been using for nearly four years. Subcommander identified his ship as IRW K'Taavok, and requested Tinnerix's aid in pursing his quarry -- Commodore Gerhadsen's shuttle. This shuttle has since been identified as a Subere runabout, and contained Commdore Gerhadsen, as well as her pilot, Lieutenant Harald Porpington of the Royal Subere Navy.

The space and ground battles

As IRW K'Taavok caught up with the shuttle, it fired weapons, damaging the shuttle and causing it to crash on the surface. At this point, USS Maxwell came within weapons range. The K'Taavok turned and engaged. Fire was traded; both vessels maneuvered, but Maxwell ended up destroying the K'Taavok. Maxwell sustained substantial damage from the battle, but is still operational.

Energy surges from the K'Taavok indicated that she transported her crew down to the surface before her singularity core suffered catastrophic evaporation -- the Romulan equivalent of a warp core breach. USS Maxwell personnel transported down with transporter enhancers to an area of forest scarred by the crashed Subere shuttle. There, they encountered the surviving crew of the K'Taavok. A ground battle ensued in which the Romulans fought to the last. During the ground action, Commodore Gerhadsen and her Subere pilot emerged from the forest to help the Maxwell personnel defeat the Romulans.

Transfer of Command

After the battle, all personnel transported back to the Maxwell. There, as per Starfleet Orders, Commodore April Coswell, Acting CO of USS Maxwell, officially transfered command back to Commodore Gerhadsen, and relieved Captain Jayce Rebel of First Officer duties.
