The Sheppard crew investigate a heavily-damaged base in a devastated system where the Nabraithians apparently eradicated all life on a M-class planet.
Captain's log, Stardate 110312.
- A hard faced captain looks at the screen and begins talking with a serious tone -
I've spent the last couple of days talking with captain Jaali. After saving his fleet from a Nabraithian-Uretcha task force when the Sheppard left the Badlands on Stardate 110309, he was more than willing for us to escort his ships to their next colony world and give me a full update on the situation as well.
It seems as soon as the Sheppard entered the Badlands on their mission, the Uretcha along with Nabraithian drone ships and larger battleships began a large offensive against the clans. Not just the Retcha but multiple other clans, using their subspace weapons to neutralize entire fleets and even destroying worlds in their path.
Captain Jaali told me that in the aftermath of those attacks, no survivors were found - not even dead bodies, it seems the Nabraithians took them. Most likely for God knows what kind of experiment and, well, I cant help but be reminded of the Borg. Is this how they started? Ive read enough of the classified reports and the educated theories to know that it's believed the Borg started through the application of high level biomedical science in a unrestrained and, well, unmoral way.
Even though I know the Borg have been defeated and I would hope the species inhabiting ex-Borg space would have learnt that lesson, could we be sitting on a second collective? These are not easy questions to answer.
Computer, end log.
Upon arrival in the Bedrock system, sensor scans revealed massive debris but no signs of life on the system's class-M planet, which harbored a prewarp civilization. Three probes were sent out to gather more data on what happened in the system and the remaining asteroid belt, where a heavily damaged base was detected. Two away teams were sent to investigate this base and found both traces of weapons fire and a shuttle that had apparently stood ready to leave the facility. Video data from the control room showed people trying to escape in shuttles while several blasts and a general evacuation alert were heard in the background. Initial analysis of the logs and data suggested that the base had been attacked by Nabraithians after they had destroyed the planet.
When the away teams returned to Sheppard, they were informed of a message sent by Starfleet recalling all vessels to Pinastri.
