While the Sheppard is preparing to leave dock and join the Fourth fleet, we will be conducting a series of drills and holodeck simulations in the meantime.
Today's simulation will be finishing off the training holo sim we were conducting as a crew before the flotilla incursion.
So far to date we have managed to locate the USS Arrow and her crew, we have found evidence of some sort of FTL technology and the fact it has gone missing from the ship.
We have then also had a call from an intel informant warning of a threat to UFS. Upon investigation, we have found that they plan on launching some kind of attack on UFS. We have located the system where this attack is being launched from and have got information that they are using some sort of experimental ftl drive (hmm, coincidence?). The Sheppard has been tasked with intercepting and neutralizing any threat if possible.
Computer, end log.
Entering the system where the attack was supposed to be launched from, the Sheppard found a large space concealed by the anomalies surrounding it - in this space were several ships using various types of technology, and the decision was made to neutralize the biggest of these vessels. The plan was to fire a Polaron beam, then make a quick pass and land an away team in a shuttle on the alien ship to place charges and detonate it from within. Although the away team was successful and managed to get back to Sheppard after setting the charges, the Sheppard herself took heavy fire from two pursuing ships, some of which made the Starfleet vessel drop to impulse and forced her to an emergency landing on a planet.
