Star Trek: Yorktown

Captain's Log : Stardate 50969.2

It has taken us a week to reach the coordinates given us inorder to rendevous with Admiral Ross’s fleet. For every Federation ship there is 1 Klingon ship in the fleet. The Captain, myself and Lt. Commander Bradshaw meet with Admiral Ross. The fleets mission is to attack and destroy the shipyards at Torros 3. The Yorktown, 4 Akiras, and 2 Defiants make up Tactical Wing 12. The rest of the fleet is to use their computers to disable the automated defense satellites, while we approach the central station and using stolen shield frequencies beam our marines over with explosives attaching them to the antimatter conduits and blowing up the station from the inside. Afterwards our wing is to destroy targets of opportunity and then blowup the shipyards. To get us to Torros 3 undetected we are being attached to the Vorcha class starship Tong’ Ve, we will extend our warp field around them and they will extend their cloaking field around us. It will take us 3 days to reach our target. On the first day out we invite the Klingon command crew to join us for dinner.

Commander Chi’un Recording

After being debriefed by Admiral Kiel, we hand over all data, wreckage, and the transporter buffer with our counterparts inside over to starbase 39 Sierra. Admiral Kiel informs us that we’re being transferred to Admiral Ross’s command in the Badlands and all our civilians are being offloaded and being ferried back to their homeworlds. The ship is completely resupplied, and gets a company of marines bringing the current ship complement to 600. 3 days later we leave for the Badlands.

War with Cardassia & the Dominon is imminent. All civilians have been ordered to disembark the Yorktown to board ships headed for the core worlds. we’ve taken aboard a full company of M.A.C.O.’s and have been ordered to rendezvous with the massing fleet at the outskirts of the badlands, with the hope that the regions plasma storms will help to mask the fleet.

Until further notice, Starfleet Command has bestowed upon me a Battlefield promotion to the rank of Captain.

Ships Log Suplimental

First officer’s personal log: The explosives go off and bring the shields down around engineering. Lt. Commander Bradshaw and 6 marines storm engineering killing 9, with 2 marines getting infected with nanites and 1 marine falling unconscious, before the Borg adapt. In a last desperate act Bradshaw and the last 3 marines succeed in destroying the Vinculum, which frees the rest of our engineering staff and 2 marines from the collectives control. We reboot the computers and retake control of the ship. Internal sensor scans detect our counterparts in the battle bridge, and we promptly capture them with the transporter and leave them in the buffer. Unfortunately Lt. Huss’s pattern degrades in the buffer, while we attempt to stabilize the patterns in the buffer for the longhaul.

Meanwhile in order to distract the Borg cube headed for us, we launch a phony Omega particle aboard a probe and move away at top speed, using Collapsear 49 and silent running to prevent the Borg from detecting us as we make our escape. We make it back to starbase 39 Sierra.

First Officer's personal log stardate 50936.8:

While patroling the Romulan Neutral Zone, we discover an unknown signal coming from the Gamma Lynxis system within Federation space. We go and investigate. The signal is Borg, but the quantum signature is not from this reality. We jam the signal and investigate. The remains of a Borg Tactical Cube lie on the planets surface. The command crew minus the captain beams down to the crash sight. We find eight Borg bodies lying around, still alive and also unconnected from each other and the collective, worse all of them are us plus Captain McCormick and Lt. Huss. Borg Bradshaw stirs and after some questioning allows us to download data from his circuitry. We learn that approximately 2 years ago the ISS Yorktown of the Terran Empire was assimilated at the battle of Alpha Centauri, further that all planets within the Empire have fallen except Vulcan. The Klingons and whats left of the Empire are allied and have built a super ship the ISS Wolf, which is essentially a Doomsday Device only not as powerful. The Wolf apparently attacked their Borg ship causing a reaction and sending a fragment of the ship into our universe, while the rest of the cube was destroyed. The quantum signature of our other selves does not match any of the known mirror universes. We beam our counterparts to sickbay, Dr. Ariane is going to try and remove the Borg parts of our counterparts bodies, I leave a security detail outside sickbay in case of trouble. Meanwhile we contact Starfleet and begin beaming the remains of the ship onboard. Our counterparts escape from sickbay, lock out our command codes, and escape to engineering erecting shields around engineering so that we can’t get in. Sensors detect a Borg cube heading towards us and it will be on top of us in 6 hours. Lt. Nabliz has set demolition charges to knock down the shields around engineering.

To be continued, Lt. Commander Sornak.

First Officer's personal log:

We agree to get the rest of the Arnu from Kir 1, in exchange for all weapons given to the Arnu. We drop off all civilians and nonessential personal on Audron 4. Using navigational coordinates given by Captain Rukin, we run silent into Romulan space. We arrive at the Kir system undetected. The Kir system has 3 planets( 1 class M which is Kir 1, 1 Mars type planet, and 1 gas giant ). We take up a low orbit around Kir 1 and try to establish contact with Dr. Byron. The reply we get back is identified by Captain Rukin as a distress signal from Dr. Byron. A total of 3 groups of 6 Romulans each surround Dr. Byron and are moving in her direction. We use the transporters to drop stun grenades on top of the Romulans taking them out. Dr. Ariane then proceeds to keep the Romulans out with anesthezine gas. We transport Dr. Byron aboard. The plan to save the Arnu is simple, using the ships phasers to first stun the Arnu and then beam them aboard and keep them unconscious for the entire trip back to Audron 4, in order to prevent cultural contamination. It takes 3 hours and 45 minutes to bring the Arnu aboard. 45 minutes earlier we detected a Romulan warbird. On our way out of the system, we orbit to the far side of Kir 1 and make for the gas giant and just as we enter the outer atmosphere a Romulan warbird decloaks around Kir 1. We orbit to the far side of the gas giant and accelerate to warp 9.2, going home the way we came. We emerge from the starcluster that was protecting us from detection, to discover 3 Romulan warbirds coming at high warp speed towards us. Lt. Commander Bradshaw pushes the engines and allows us to attain warp 9.7, which allows us to escape our persuers all the way over the neutral zone. We take a roundabout way back to Audron 4, to drop off the Arnu and pick up our crew.

Admiral Kiel gives us unofficial congratulations on a job well done, Dr. Byron and her associates are to remain on Audron 4 and look out for the Arnu, and Captain Rukin and his crew spend 6 months in a rehabilitation center for arms smuggling.

Thats all for now, faithfully yours, Lt. Commander Sornak.

First Officer's personal log:

We get a transmission from a administrator Landau of Tyrus 1 colony about illegal arms trafficking, and go there to investigate. Apparently an Andorian named Goich and a Ferengi named Zaph got into a bar fight, with both getting arrested, but not before mouthing off about an arms sale in front of witnesses. Both spill their guts after being offered immunity and protection. A Captain Rukin of the freighter Perveyor left with a shipment of weapons( 22 phaser 2’s, 16 phaser rifles, 5 Tectrion pulse emitters, and 1 case of gravitic mines. ) for the planet Audron 4, 3 days earlier. We make the trip in one day. Audron 4 was being investigated by a science team led by the xeno anthropologist Dr. Valerie Byron of Earth, to see if Audron 4 is suitable for Federation colonization. The science team’s job to make sure that no intelligent life forms currently exist on the planet. We beam down to the planet and meet Captain Rukin and Dr. Byron’s assistant Dr. Pilish, and they intoduce us to a new species the Arnu, whom they claim come from a planet inside the Romulan Empire called Kir 1. They claim that they rescued them from the evil Romulans. But the only thing we know for sure is that they violated the Prime Directive and have given the Arnu the weapons that we were persuing. They also claim that Dr. Byron is on Kir 1.

Battles of Cheron Part 2

First Officer’s personal log: We meet with Senator Tomek and give him a copy of all the data on Senator Kassus and Centurion Vekiron. Senator Tomek agrees to help out against Senator Kassus, mission completed. We return to starbase 332 back on our side of the neutral zone.

One week later Admiral Kiel orders us back to the neutral zone to rendevous with Senator Kassus aboard the warbird Hakara and escort it to starbase 332 for diplomatic meetings. Upon our return to starbase 332, Senator Kassus beams over with his entourage to begin the diplomatic process, meanwhile a fleet of Federation starships begins to amass around starbase 332 including the Enterprise. The following day Captain Chiun attends an emergency meeting with Admiral Kiel and all the other starfleet captains at starbase 332, apparently there is a chronoton disturbance coming from the Kahara system in the neutral zone. Admiral Kiel and the Enterprise are leading a 56 ship fleet to Kahara to deal with the situation. Senator Kassus and the Hakara are coming along to supposedly assist us. Along the way we intercept a message from Senator Kassus to Vekiron saying that his actions are endangering the mission and to decloak and pretend to surrender. We inform the rest of our fleet and spring Kassus’s trap. Kassos’s house fleet of 25 warbirds and 45 smaller ships decloak and attack, sensors also indicate chronoton disturbances coming from an Iconian outpost as well as Vekiron’s ship the K’ Tara. Admiral Kiel orders that the Iconian outpost must be destoyed first, but in order to do that we must punch a hole through the Romulan fleet first. The Yorktown engages a warbird crippling it with 85% damage, while only receiving a small scratch in return, thus making the opening we need to attack the Iconian outpost 5 other ships join us( 1 Akira class, 2 Nebula class with tactical pods, and 2 Defiant class starships ). We locate the main power source of the Iconian outpost and target it enmasse, destroying it completely. Enroute to our next target the K’ Tara we find the Enterprise in trouble with 4 warbirds. The Yorktown with the 5 ship taskforce in tow completes a pair of Chain Collision maneuvers against 2 of the 4 warbirds destroying all 4 warbirds, and saving the Enterprise in the process. 20 more Romulan warbirds decloak from the Praetor’s personal fleet, with Senator Tomek in command, in order to place Senator Kassus under arrest and order his fleet to stand down. The K’ Tara activates a time window and goes through, the Yorktown pursues. Both ships find themselves in the year 2160 on the day of the end of the first Romulan war. The K’ Tara heads to the Charon system to change the final outcome of the war. We overtake the K’ Tara and knock it out of warp and place the warbird in a tractor beam and using the Tractor Disruption Maneuver, take its engines offline and cause its reactor to self destruct. The Romulans abandon ship and we beam them all into cargo bay 1. Vekiron tries to escape in a shuttlecraft, but we end up destoying it and Vekiron. Meanwhile the K’ Tara’s blackhole reactor destroys the ship. We slingshot around the nearest star to return to our own time, overshooting the time we left by 18 days. We report in and discover the Senator Kassus that was taken into custody was in fact a changling, who promptly escaped back to the Dominion. Well at least we prevented the Romulans from changing the timestream this time, even though we’re due for a long visit with the Department of Temporal Investigations.

Well thats all for now, faithfully yours, Lt. Commander Sornak.

Battles of Cheron Part 1

First Officer’s personal log stardate 50812.6: Admiral Kiel and Captain Doleo come aboard and give us our next assignment. We are to go to planet Genar 4, which is 9 lightyears across the Romulan boarder, to see Senator Tomek and convince him to stop Senator Kassus from fulfilling his plans to become Praetor. We board an Orion freighter commanded by Diner Keris. Unfortunately we get sold out to Centurion Vekiron’s people.

After some brief interrogations we get sent to the Dilithium mining planet Tuvia. After several days we get contacted by Lt. Commander Markus from Starfleet Intelligence, who has been undercover as a guard in the prison. Lt. Commander Markus arranges to meet us at the entrance to the mine at midnight. We manage to neutralize the first four guards at the first two checkpoints, relieving them of their disrupter rifles, and manage to sneak by the last two guards at the last checkpoint. We rendevous with Lt. Commander Markus and he returns the stuff taken from us when we were captured, furthermore he removes the explosive ankle bracelets we were forced to wear. Next Markus takes us to the shuttlebay, where we blow through the wall and take out the six guards inside the bay. We then steal a shuttle with a cloaking device, and spot Centurion Vekiron’s ship once we reach orbit. We engage the cloak and continue our mission to Genar 4, arriving there in several days.

To be continued, faithfully yours, Lt. Commander Sornak.

Enemy Within

First Officer’s personal log: Despite our best efforts the Romulans through a series of clever deceptions kidnap Dr. Muris. Lt. Commander Bradshaw, Lt. Nabliz, and Dr. Ariane succeed in capturing a Romulan agent, who trades away information in exchange for asylum. Thus we learn that Dr. Muris has been taken to Iconia. Commander Data joins us in our rescue mission of Dr. Muris.
We push the warp engines to the limit and arrive at Iconia in 64 hours time. The science officer detects the Romulan Warbird orbiting the planet cloaked. Sensors also detect a large manmade tunnel in the planets surface. Dr. Ariane, Lt. Commander Bradshaw, Lt. Nabliz, the science officer, Commander Data, and 3 marines beam down. Tricorder scans are limited to a 50 meter range. The landing party manages to take out 6 Romulans, while one marine is seriously injured, while advancing through the Iconian maze. Finally the landing party reaches the control room and takes out 4 more Romulans, and finds and rescues Dr. Muris. Dr. Ariane gives Dr. Muris a quick examination and except for being a little roughed up Dr. Muris is fine. Commander Data encrypts the Iconian computers in ancient Babylonian so that the Romulans can no longer access the data in them. The landing party rushes back to the beam out point.
Meanwhile the Romulan warbird goes behind the planet, the Captain expects that we’ll be attacked soon. The Captain dispatches a shuttlecraft to the planet to pick up the landing party, piloted by Lt. Fontanelli. The warbird attacks and the fight is basically a stalemate with the warbird having a slight advantage. Finally in the last exchange we get the upper hand and force the Romulan to withdraw.
Back on the planet the landing party defeats 12 more Romulans losing a marine in the exchange. The shuttlecraft picks up the landing party and docks safely aboard ship. We return back to Zhalkor debrief and finish up. Dr. Muris thanks us all for saving her life, I guess we’ve made a new friend. We return to starbase 39 Sierra for repairs escorted by Enterprise. Dr. Muris takes a transport home. We can all hope that we put a serious dent in the Romulans attempts at time travel.
Thats all for now, faithfullly yours, Lt. Commander Sornak.

The Winds of War

First Officer’s personal log: We arrive at starbase 375 Captain Chiun beams down immediately to meet with Admiral Ross along with 200 other starship captains. The Cardassians have allied themselves with the Dominion. Intelligence suggests that the Dominion and Cardassians are going to invade the Federation, their goal the Kalandra system. Our goal to stop them. Our Wing 462 is comprised of us, another Galaxy class starship the USS Bunker Hill, the Intrepid class USS Bellepheron, the Norway class USS England, and 2 Centaur class ships the USS Gorgon and the USS Chimera. Captain Hill of the Bunker Hill is in overall command. We offload our civilians.
Before we leave information about figuring out how to make our shields useful against polaron weaponry is transmitted to the ship, our science and engineering officers are working on the problem on our way to our patrol area. We get attacked by one Jem’ Hadar Warship and six Jem’ Hadar attack ships. We take light damage overall but are forced to drop out of warp and break formation with the other ships, however we manage to destoy all six attack ships and hurt the warship badly enough that it is forced to retreat. The important thing is that both our chief science officer and our chief engineer figured out how to make our shields work against polaron weaponry.
Admiral Ross thinks the attack on Kalandra is just a ruse for something else and sends our wing to Bajor. When we get there we discover that a Trilithium device had exploded near Bajor’s Sun. Fortunately it exploded too far away from the sun to make it go supernova. We spend a week at Deep Space 9 for repairs.
Next we’re headed back to Starbase 39 Sierra, to deal with more Romulan problems undoubtably.
Along the way we find a Maquis ship being persued by 3 Jem’ Hadar attack ships and one Gaylor class cruiser. The Maquis enter Federation space and we apprehend them, much to the dismay of the Cardassian Captain persuing them. If not for the leader of the Dominion forces named Nelan, battle would have been forced upon us. Nelan fed us a bunch of bull how the Dominion wants peace between them and us, obviously their other actions say otherwise. I suppose we’ll be seeing him again.
We drop the Maquis and their ship off at starbase 375 and pick up our civilians, and head out to starbase 39 Sierra.
Thats all for now, faithfully yours, Lt. Commander Sornak.
