Prelude

Commanding Officer Poison Toocool - Log, Stardate 120831:

Location: Class L Planetoid, 6 ly trailing SS Astraios -- Our mission is to rendezvous with USS Huitzilopochtli, on route from the Pinastri system, and escort her to Astraios Sector. We estimated 3 to 4 weeks travel time to meeting her. Signals have been intermittent, but that is to be expected given the Astraios effect and the proximity of the Takaar Nebula.

The ShoValla people have cooperated with us in allowing us access to the shield generator, and speaking with the Away Team, although he apparently showed a healthy interest in our two junior officers, both female. We were able to launch our probe.

I have informed Starfleet Command, via encrypted communication, of our plans, and officially requested that any available ships from the Task Force be deployed here as soon as possible.

The bogus distress call, using an outdated algorythm, was sent at the same time, and almost immediately resulted in the appearance of a ship on long range scans. Details are sketchy but it appears to be Klingon. My fear is that other cloaked vessels may be travelling with it.

We have prepared a shuttle to emit a holographic projection of the Argonaut, and false energy signatures, and it is on route via auto pilot to the unpopulated area we have chosen.

Thankfully through the use of the probe's increased communication capacity I have been able to raise Captain Targus Libre on the USS Huitzilopochtli, they have changed course to intercept us.

Otherwise, we remain shielded, cloaked, and hidden behind the hills, engines off, silently setting ourselves in order while we await our prey...

Events

Reporting: Captain Poison Toocool, USS Argonaut, Stardate 120902 - Location: 6 ly trailing Astraios

We engaged the pirate Bird of Prey at 11:20 hours, after they arrived and disengaged the planet shield grid using some kind of algorythm. We rose up from behind the hills, took out their shields, lowered ours and, just as we were transporting aboard the prisoners we'd located on their vessel, two other ships decloaked. We quickly engaged them as well, fire torpedoes and phasers. Although the Bird of Prey had been disabled, we were still outgunned. Luckily the Huitzilopochtli was close at hand and was able to also engage. Unfortunately they took heavier damage than we did. They ejected their core near the pirate vessel and we used all available cargo transporters to beam the crew to our ship... the core exploded. I await status reports.
