General Data
*Production number: 013
*Initiated: 080202
*Ended: 080203
*Year: 2383
*Aliens: Terran Empire
*Previous Mission: Deception
*Next Mission: Paradoxial Anomaly
*SIM Concept: Chase Quinnell
*Historian: MilesPrower Dagger

The Redeemer is investigating unusual spatial anomalies in near the Geggiran Nebula. The science officer believes it may be a sign of more trouble from the Terran Empire.


As the Redeemer is scanning the anomaly, 2 Akira class vessels(ISS Destiny and the ISS Melbourne) and 3 Nebula class ships(ISS T'Cumba, ISS Vengeance and the ISS T'Ran) come through the spatial anomaly and set an intercept course with the Redeemer.

Scans reveal the ships are heavily armed and are twice as powerful as their Federation counterparts. The USS Vintage(Miranda Class) and the USS Benton(Intrepid Class) are 3 hours away at maximum warp.


Mission Logs

[12:21] Chase Quinnell: What do you make of the anomaly?
[12:22] michaels Toshi: i dont see any tactical threat posed by it
[12:22] Chase Quinnell: Orion?
[12:22] Chase Quinnell: What's your analysis
[12:22] Lyla Anzac: may be a worm hole...and a great threat
[12:23] Orion Pastorelli considers the reading he is veiwing, " well sir we are definatly dealing with a Space/Time phenomon
[12:23] Chase Quinnell: I see
[12:23] Chase Quinnell: What kind of space-time phenomenon?
[12:23] Orion Pastorelli: cross-referecing sir...
[12:24] Orion Pastorelli: Sir! I a detecting the mirror universe radiation decay signature
[12:24] Chase Quinnell: Just what we need, more fun with the mirror universe.
[12:25] Chase Quinnell sighs.
[12:25] michaels Toshi: im detecting a disturbance in the anomalies
[12:25] Chase Quinnell: What kind of disturbance?
[12:25] michaels Toshi: seem to be growing in energy output
[12:25] Orion Pastorelli: I can confirm that sir...
[12:26] michaels Toshi: sir vessels are emerging!
[12:26] Chase Quinnell: What a surprise. I want ID on those ships
[12:26] Chase Quinnell: Put them on-screen.
[12:26] Silkie Dagger: Aye, onscreen, Sir
[12:26] michaels Toshi: 2 Akira class vessels(ISS Destiny and the ISS Melbourne) and 3 Nebula class ships(ISS T'Cumba, ISS Vengeance and the ISS T'Ran)
[12:27] Chase Quinnell: Go to yellow alert
[12:27] Chase Quinnell: What kind of tactical abilities?
[12:27] michaels Toshi: aye sir going to yellow alert
[12:27] michaels Toshi: double what a normal vessel would put out in power
[12:28] Orion Pastorelli turns a pale shade of green... tactical please confirm these hull integrety readings from the terran ships
[12:28] michaels Toshi checks
[12:28] michaels Toshi: yes its correct
[12:28] Chase Quinnell: Report.
[12:29] Orion Pastorelli: sir, they are armed to the teeth and using a varient of alabated armor [12:29] Chase Quinnell: This ought to be a fun day.
[12:29] Lyla Anzac smiles
[12:29] Chase Quinnell: How far are the nearest Starfleet vessels?
[12:30] Orion Pastorelli wipes his brow which has started to gleam with sweat
[12:30] Silkie Dagger: About 3 hours, max warp, Sir
[12:30] Chase Quinnell: Ok, I want them here on the double
[12:30] Silkie Dagger nods, "Aye, Sir."
[12:30] Chase Quinnell: In the mean time, let's try to keep these guys occupied.
[12:31] Chase Quinnell: Hold position here and see what they do.
[12:31] Silkie Dagger sends out a notice to the USS Vintage and Benton.
[12:31] Orion Pastorelli tapps furiously on his com pannel gathtering data from the spacial rift
[12:32] Silkie Dagger: They are on their way, Sir.
[12:32] Silkie Dagger: Sir, the 5 Imperial ships are on an intercept course with us.
[12:33] Chase Quinnell: Shields up, red alert.
[12:33] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[12:33] michaels Toshi: red alert, shields holding
[12:33] Lyla Anzac: Shall we navigate into the nebula sir
[12:33] Chase Quinnell: Helm, prepare those evasive manuevers I tought you yesterday.
[12:34] Lyla Anzac: ::taps buttons on panel
[12:34] Lyla Anzac: :: programs manouvers ready
[12:34] michaels Toshi: the ships are opening fire!
[12:34] michaels Toshi: direct hit shields at 91%
[12:34] Chase Quinnell: I think it would be wise to enter the nebula now. Helm, evasive manuevers and head for the nebula
[12:34] Chase Quinnell: I doubt they will try to fight us in there.
[12:35] Lyla Anzac: ::moving into delta pattern
[12:35] Chase Quinnell: Engineering, keep my shields in one piece.
[12:35] Niku Cuttita: aye aye Captain
[12:35] Niku Cuttita diverts more power to the shields
[12:35] Orion Pastorelli: Sir, I'm getting what I think are transmission signals from the rift.... uploading to COM - ms. dagger please check for for presence of know ID codes
[12:36] Lyla Anzac: :: moves ships towards nebulae whilst avoiding fire
[12:36] Silkie Dagger: Aye, checking now.
[12:36] Niku Cuttita: shields are holding at 98% captain
[12:37] Lyla Anzac: :: veers ship rapidly to the right ....and jolts everyone on board
[12:37] michaels Toshi: theyve broken pursuit
[12:37] Niku Cuttita grabs a hold of the console
[12:37] Chase Quinnell: How many?
[12:37] michaels Toshi: are setting course for 001
[12:38] Silkie Dagger braces herself as she tries to continue checking the codes.
[12:38] Orion Pastorelli holds on the bulk head
[12:38] michaels Toshi: only 2
[12:38] Orion Pastorelli eyes grow wide...
[12:38] Chase Quinnell: Argh.
[12:38] Chase Quinnell: Helm, set course for Pinastri, Sector001.
[12:38] Chase Quinnell: Engage at maximum warp.
[12:39] Chase Quinnell: Order the Vintage and the Benton to rendevouz at Pinastri.
[12:39] Lyla Anzac: :: engages max warp for Pinastri
[12:39] Silkie Dagger: They are codes from the mirror universe, but I cant break it.
[12:39] Chase Quinnell: Inform UF Starfleet Command that they will have some un-welcomed visitors in about 2 hours.
[12:40] Silkie Dagger: Aye, Sir, informing the Vintage and the Benton.
[12:40] Silkie Dagger finishes tapping, "..And Starfleet."
[12:41] Chase Quinnell: What's our ETA to Pinastri?
[12:42] Silkie Dagger: Our ETA to Pinastri is 2.5 hours, Sir
[12:42] Orion Pastorelli: sir, ms dagger has confirmed the identity of the transmisions from the rift.... they have some how set up a COM link throught it, recomend sending a ship to either close the rift or jam the signal
[12:42] Chase Quinnell: How long until the Imperial ships reach Pinastri?
[12:42] Chase Quinnell: I agree, Orion.
[12:43] Chase Quinnell: Send a message to the Vintage, have them close that darned rift.
[12:43] Silkie Dagger: Aye, Sir
[12:43] Chase Quinnell: How long until the Imperial ships reach Pinastri?
[12:44] Silkie Dagger: About 2 hours, >Sir
[12:44] Chase Quinnell: I want to be there before they do
[12:44] Chase Quinnell: Get me those 30 minutes back, engineering.
[12:45] Niku Cuttita: aye aye Captain
[12:45] Niku Cuttita: I can probably get you 15 min max but i'll see what i can do
[12:45] Niku Cuttita: I'll need to reroute power from all noessential systems
[12:45] Chase Quinnell: Do it.
[12:45] Niku Cuttita: aye aye sir
[12:46] Silkie Dagger: Sir, we are being hailed by UFS Command, onscreen?
[12:46] Chase Quinnell: Aye, onscreen
[12:46] Silkie Dagger: ::Command onscreen::
[12:47] Orion Pastorelli condisered his department's power useage... "Cadet Cuttita, you can shut down science labs 2,3 and 4, nothing essecial is going on there...
[12:48] Niku Cuttita: aye aye sir I can do that
[12:48] =A= Admiral Ashbourne: Lt Quinnell, we recieved your warning and have called most of the fleet back to Pinastri, but only 2 ships can make it back before the Imperial ships arrive. I'm afraid we're nearly defenseless right now. =A=
[12:48] Niku Cuttita begins to reoute all available power to the engines
[12:50] Niku Cuttita: Captain we should be able to reach Pinastri in 29 min
[12:50] Chase Quinnell: Admiral, I think the Terran Empire may have known that now was the best time to strike. I have 3 Imperial ships close behind me and 2 about 30 minutes ahead of me. I wish I could go faster, but it looks like we're in a bad position. Please try to hold out until we get there [12:51] Admiral Ashbourne : =A= Lt, it appears your friends have ****Static**** =A=
[12:51] Orion Pastorelli pounds his consol, "this is unreal... sir, we can't hold them off" [12:51] Silkie Dagger: Sir.... the channel has been cut off.
[12:51] Chase Quinnell: darn! I want more speed.
[12:52] Chase Quinnell: I won't sit by while Pinastri is destroyed.
[12:52] Niku Cuttita: I'm working on it Captain
[12:52] Niku Cuttita: I can divert power from decks 7 and 12 there are no personal on those decks
[12:52] Chase Quinnell: ::The 3 Imperial ships behind the Redeemer begin to open fire on the right Nacelle::
[12:52] Niku Cuttita: that may buy us an extra 2 min
[12:53] michaels Toshi: aft shields at 85%!
[12:53] Chase Quinnell: Agh!
[12:53] Chase Quinnell: Fire at will, Ensign.
[12:53] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[12:53] michaels Toshi: ::fires all aft launchers and phaser banks::
[12:53] Orion Pastorelli holds on to the bulkhead to steady himself, "CENSORED"
[12:53] michaels Toshi: holy *CENSORED*
[12:53] Chase Quinnell: ::The Redeemer drops out of warp in the Pinastri system. 4 Starfleet ships are drifting in space while the Cascade Station is taking a beating::
[12:54] Silkie Dagger inhales softly as her eyes move over the scene
[12:54] Niku Cuttita increases the matter flow into the core
[12:54] Chase Quinnell: Umpf! We seem to be having a little turbulence. Please buckle all.. Argh! Open fire on those Imperial ships.
[12:54] michaels Toshi: we're not grazing the shields of the ships on our aft
[12:56] Silkie Dagger tries to brace against the impact, but her head slams forward onto the console.
[12:56] michaels Toshi: i'll start firing on their starboard nacelle like reina taught me [12:56] Chase Quinnell: Good, Michaels. do it.
[12:56] michaels Toshi: ::fires::
[12:56] Chase Quinnell: Hows the Cascade coming along?
[12:56] michaels Toshi: Cascades shielding is starting to buckle
[12:57] Chase Quinnell: Order all vessels to converge on the Cascade and defend it
[12:57] Niku Cuttita: We've lost port impulse drive as well sir
[12:57] Silkie Dagger: I'm sending the message now, Sir
[12:57] michaels Toshi: shields at 76%
[12:58] michaels Toshi: the Benton has just dropped out of warp!
[12:58] Orion Pastorelli looks a the nasty brusie on Silkie's forehead, " you gonna be ok, ms.dagger?"
[12:58] Chase Quinnell: Silkie, maybe you should go down to sickbay.
[12:58] Silkie Dagger: Aye, I'm better than some...
[12:58] michaels Toshi: shes destroyed an imperial vessel on our tail
[12:58] Chase Quinnell: Good
[12:58] Chase Quinnell: I always knew Captain Reynolds could put up a good fight.
[12:59] Chase Quinnell: Have the Benton get rid of those other two ships.
[12:59] Chase Quinnell: I'd like to get our impulse drive back online.
[12:59] Chase Quinnell: Running on thrusters will not do us any good.
[12:59] Niku Cuttita: I'm working as fast as i can captain
[13:00] michaels Toshi: the Benton is moving in on the other vessels
[13:00] Chase Quinnell: Very good.
[13:00] Niku Cuttita: but the power relays on decks 5 and 9 are completely shot
[13:00] Niku Cuttita: I should have them up in about 10 minutes
[13:00] michaels Toshi: i located a set of evasive patterns used but the terren empire, helm can you analyse these and make a few moves to match 'em?
[13:01] michaels Toshi: cascades shields are gone
[13:01] michaels Toshi: theyve lost part of the outer ring!!!!
[13:01] Orion Pastorelli does some more calculations on the initial hull integrity readings from the terren ships, "Tactical, refocus phaser apature to 3. 46, that should give you better penitration on the alabative variant armor
[13:01] michaels Toshi: Cascade is venting atmosphere
[13:01] Chase Quinnell: fire on the ships attacking the Cascade.
[13:01] Chase Quinnell: I am sick of playing games with them.
[13:01] michaels Toshi: aye making adjustments
[13:02] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[13:02] Chase Quinnell: Order all vessels to converge on the two vessels.
[13:02] michaels Toshi: firing
[13:02] Chase Quinnell: I want them eliminated
[13:02] Silkie Dagger: Sending the order..
[13:02] michaels Toshi: direct hit
[13:02] Niku Cuttita: impulse engines are up and running Captain
[13:02] michaels Toshi: one of the vessels is crippled
[13:03] Chase Quinnell: Good
[13:03] michaels Toshi: the USS Vintage is destroyed sir!!!
[13:03] Chase Quinnell: Bloody hell.
[13:03] Chase Quinnell: Looks like I'll need to take the helm.
[13:03] Chase Quinnell: Taking attack pattern Omega.
[13:04] Chase Quinnell: Target the T'Ran
[13:04] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[13:04] michaels Toshi: firing!
[13:04] Chase Quinnell: Full spread of torpedos.
[13:04] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[13:04] michaels Toshi: theyre returning fire
[13:04] michaels Toshi: shields down to 51%
[13:05] Niku Cuttita: diverting power to shields
[13:05] Orion Pastorelli holds on some more...
[13:05] michaels Toshi: the T'Ran's shields are at 40%
[13:05] Chase Quinnell: ::As the T'Ran fires again, Lt Quinnell moves the Redeemer out of the way and the phaser hits the pursuing Imperial ship, throwing it into the path of the other pursuing ship, destroying both::
[13:05] Orion Pastorelli assists Cuttita with power allowcation...
[13:06] Chase Quinnell: I'm getting too old for Helm work.
[13:06] Chase Quinnell: Two down, one to go.
[13:06] michaels Toshi: im firing everything we have at their core
[13:06] Chase Quinnell: Order all vessels to disable the remaining ship, the T'Ran.
[13:06] Silkie Dagger: Not old, Sir, experienced.
[13:06] Chase Quinnell smiles
[13:06] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[13:06] Orion Pastorelli: well I think he is...
[13:07] michaels Toshi: the vessel is crippled but not destroyed, shall i fire again?
[13:07] Chase Quinnell: Negative
[13:07] Orion Pastorelli looks around in horror, "did I say that out loud? my apologies sir..."
[13:07] Chase Quinnell: I want those two Imperial ships and their crew to be taken captive.
[13:07] Chase Quinnell grins at Orion.
[13:07] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[13:07] Chase Quinnell: I'll be talking with you later, Ensign.
[13:07] michaels Toshi: can you bringing us into transporter range
[13:07] Chase Quinnell smirks.
[13:08] michaels Toshi: can you*
[13:08] Chase Quinnell: Beam the crew of the T'Ran into the Cascade's brig.
[13:08] Orion Pastorelli looks down at his counsil...
[13:08] Niku Cuttita: aye aye sir
[13:08] Chase Quinnell: I'm sure Cmdr Barthelmess will have a field day with those two ships.
[13:10] Niku Cuttita: all members of the T'Ran have been beamed directly to the brig sir
[13:10] michaels Toshi: i think Cyril will be a little busy with cascade....
[13:10] Orion Pastorelli begins uplinking to the terren science databases then remembers the rift... "sir, recomend you check in on the ship you sent to deal with the transdimentional COM link.
[13:11] Chase Quinnell: The Vintage? It was destroyed
[13:11] Chase Quinnell: Obviously we have to close that rift ourselves.
[13:11] Chase Quinnell: Set course for the Geggiran Nebula, maximum warp.
[13:12] michaels Toshi: i dont think we are in any shape to sir....
[13:12] Chase Quinnell mutters
[13:12] Chase Quinnell: Have the Benton do it then
[13:12] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[13:12] Chase Quinnell: Tell Captain Reynolds to watch his back
[13:12] michaels Toshi: the benton is still in ok condition
[13:12] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[13:13] Orion Pastorelli: sir! we need to close or jam that rift! the mirror universe could know what has transpired by know if the destroyed ships sent out a distress call
[13:13] Chase Quinnell: I doubt they got one through. Admiral Ashbourne sent me a coded message via the Conn and told me they had jammed their signals.
[13:14] Chase Quinnell: Which is why the Imperial ships had so much trouble coordinating their attack.
[13:14] Orion Pastorelli sighs in releif... "I was wondering why we were still alive..."
[13:14] Chase Quinnell: Send relief teams down to the Cascade immediatly..
[13:14] michaels Toshi: they were very sloppy in my opinion
