  • Engineering: Ensign Jaket Benelli
  • Operations: Ensign Ebak Naglo
  • Tactical/Security: Lt. Jg Vinnie Lei

[13:04] Lt. Chase Quinnell: Helm ETA to D'Noria?
[13:04] Ens. Jaket Benelli hums while waiting for something to happen
[13:04] Cadet Racquel Darwin: 12 minutes, Sir.
[13:05] Cadet Racquel Darwin: 3 at warp 8.
[13:05] Lt. Chase Quinnell: Maintain course and speed, Helm
[13:05] Cadet Racquel Darwin: Aye sir.
[13:06] Ens. Ebak Naglo: Captain, we're picking up a distress signal from a Klingon ship
[13:06] Lt. Chase Quinnell: Do you have its coordinates?
[13:06] Ebak Naglo: Yes sir, transmitting to helm
[13:06] Cadet Racquel Darwin punches in the coordinates
[13:07] Lt. Chase Quinnell: Helm, upon receiveal set course for those coordinates and engage warp 8.
[13:07] Racquel Darwin: Course adjusted, Sir.
[13:07] Racquel Darwin: Warp 8 aye, Sir
[13:07]  ::The Redeemer arrives at the coordinates of the distress call to find a Klingon bird of prey in critical condition::
[13:08] Lt. Jg Vinnie Lei: *scans the ship* It's in bad shape. Warpdrive offline, life support failing on 80% of the ship.
[13:08] Ebak Naglo: Sir, we're being hailed
[13:08] Lt. Chase Quinnell: Onscreen.
[13:09] Jaket Benelli: ive already got a repair team assembled and ready to provide aid sir
[13:09] Racquel Darwin scans the sensor readings to check for enemy vessels.
[13:09] Chase Quinnell: Send over a repair crew, Jaket.
[13:09] Jaket Benelli: aye sir
[13:10] Jaket Benelli: beaming them over now
[13:10] Cmdr Grath: =A= Captain, we need your assistance. We were attacked by an RFR Romulan vessel. I think it was Talon class.
[13:10] Chase Quinnell: Understood. We're beaming over repair crews and medical supplies.
[13:11] Racquel Darwin checks the sensor readings again trying to pick up any sign.
[13:11] Cmdr Grath: =A= Grath out. =A=
[13:11] Chase Quinnell: I want to know if that Romulan ship returns.
[13:11] Vinnie Lei: *punches some buttons over the LCARS and nods* Confirmed. Disruptor fire all over the place. I do not detect their presence here at the moment though, sir.
[13:12] Jaket Benelli: id recommend going to yellow alert in case they return sir
[13:12] Jaket Benelli: can never be too careful with rommies
[13:12] Chase Quinnell: Noted. Yellow alert
[13:12] Racquel Darwin programs some evasive patterns, just to make ready for un pleasant surprises.
[13:12] Vinnie Lei: *raises shields on his LCARS*
[13:12] Chase Quinnell: Jaket, how are the repairs coming?
[13:13] Ebak Naglo: Scanners show no sign of any vessels in the area...besides..if the Talon class does return...the Redeemer will be more than a match for it.
[13:13] Jaket Benelli: the damage was extensive sir
[13:13] Jaket Benelli: life support and impulse should be up within 5 mins
[13:13] Jaket Benelli: but warp drive will take at least 14 hours sir
[13:14] Chase Quinnell: Understood.
[13:14] Racquel Darwin: Sir, should I position the ship into a defensive position?
[13:14] Chase Quinnell: Do it helm.
[13:14] Racquel Darwin: Aye sir.
[13:14] Racquel Darwin fiddles with helm to a protective position near the Klingon vessel.
[13:15] Racquel Darwin notes the Redeemer glide smoothly into a protective posture above the stricken vessel.
[13:16] Racquel Darwin: In position now, Captain.
[13:16] Vinnie Lei: *glances over his panel and sees there's something odd Cap'n, I detect Neutrino emissions here.
[13:16] Racquel Darwin stacks evasive postures in the helm.
[13:17] Racquel Darwin stacks offensive posture into the helm
[13:17] Ebak Naglo: I got something...Romulan, Talon Class decloaking!
[13:17] Chase Quinnell: Keep weapons at the ready, Tactical.
[13:17] Chase Quinnell: Red alert. All hands to battle stations.
[13:17] Vinnie Lei: Weapons armed and ready, sir.
[13:17] Racquel Darwin poises her finger on the engage button
[13:18] Chase Quinnell: Hail the Romulan ship.
[13:18] Jaket Benelli starts a level 1 diagnostic, locked on a continuous cycle
[13:18] Vinnie Lei: Hailing frequencies open, sir.
[13:18] Racquel Darwin punches in evasive Talar beta.
[13:18] Racquel Darwin readies her finger.
[13:18] Ebak Naglo: no response to our hail
[13:18] Chase Quinnell: Romulan vessel, please identify your reason for being here.
[13:18] Ebak Naglo: still no response
[13:18] Chase Quinnell: Not much for talking.
[13:19]  ::the Romulan ship fires on the Redeemer::
[13:19] Chase Quinnell: Helm, evasive maneuvers
[13:19] Racquel Darwin punches the helm and the ship lurches out of harm's way.
[13:19] Vinnie Lei: Indirect impact, shields at 92%.
[13:19] Racquel Darwin: Done, Sir.
[13:19] Chase Quinnell: Tactical, try to disable them.
[13:19] Chase Quinnell: Keep them away from the Klingon ship
[13:19] Vinnie Lei: Yes, sir. *fires phasers*
[13:19] Racquel Darwin: Sir, my program Talar alpha can make it seem like there are three ships.
[13:19] Ebak Naglo: The Romulans are sending a distress call
[13:20] Chase Quinnell: What are the power costs of that maneuver?
[13:20] Chase Quinnell: Try to jam their signal
[13:20] Racquel Darwin calculates.
[13:20] Ebak Naglo: Attempting..but they got most of it out
[13:20] Chase Quinnell: Dangit.
[13:20] Racquel Darwin: Just three bursts of warp one sir.
[13:20] Racquel Darwin: Minimal
[13:21] Chase Quinnell: I rather not use it unless it's necessary.
[13:21] Racquel Darwin: Aye, sir
[13:21] Racquel Darwin fiddles with the helm.
[13:21] Ebak Naglo: I'm picking up a Romulan destroyer inbound, ETA 1 minute
[13:21] Chase Quinnell: Tactical, I have an idea.
[13:21] Vinnie Lei: Shoot,
[13:22] Jaket Benelli: sir, i may have an idea
[13:22] Jaket Benelli: ever heard of a noisemaker?
[13:22] Chase Quinnell: Hmm, I believe I have.
[13:22] Racquel Darwin raises an eyebrow.
[13:23] Jaket Benelli: we send out a probe that emits a reading that mimics our ship's reading
[13:23] Racquel Darwin grins evilly.
[13:23] Jaket Benelli: makes it look like theres 2 of us here
[13:23] Chase Quinnell: I think that's worth a try. Engineering, can you configure a probe to emit a signal like that?
[13:23] Vinnie Lei: Ah, fooling game. Nice *grins*
[13:23] Chase Quinnell: Have it ready for Ops to deploy as soon as possible.
[13:23] Jaket Benelli: aye sir
[13:24] Jaket Benelli: means they only have a 50/50 chance of hitting us
[13:24] Racquel Darwin: But, recommend only when they start firing.
[13:24] Jaket Benelli: probe will take about 3 mins to reconfigure
[13:24] Racquel Darwin: 20/80, surely.
[13:24] Chase Quinnell: Helm, evasive maneuvers pattern delta six.
[13:24] Racquel Darwin: Aye sir, delta six.
[13:24] Ebak Naglo: The destroyer is entering the system..its a Romulan Winged Defender
[13:24] Jaket Benelli: to their sensors, it will appear as a real ship
[13:24] Chase Quinnell: Tactical, try to keep those ships away from the Klingon bird of prey.
[13:24] Racquel Darwin guides the ship into the course.
[13:25] Vinnie Lei: Aye, sir. *begins to calculate some firing sequences to keep'em off*
[13:25] Racquel Darwin: Sir, I can get into a lovely position for a belly punch.
[13:25] Jaket Benelli: noisemaker ready sir
[13:25] Jaket Benelli: but its only likely to work the one time
[13:25] Chase Quinnell: Ops, deploy the noisemaker.
[13:25] Chase Quinnell: Noted, Jaket.
[13:25] Jaket Benelli: loaded and ready for fire command sir
[13:26] Ebak Naglo: Deploying..now!
[13:26] Jaket Benelli: send it silent
[13:26] Jaket Benelli: so it doesnt track back to us
[13:26] Ebak Naglo: done
[13:26] Jaket Benelli: the activation command has been routed to tactical sir
[13:26] Vinnie Lei: *fires a torpedo to mask the probe from being seen like that*
[13:26] Chase Quinnell: Tactical, activate the probe on my mark.
[13:26] Racquel Darwin nods.
[13:26] Vinnie Lei: Activation standing bye.
[13:27] Chase Quinnell: Activate it now!
[13:27] Vinnie Lei: Activating, now!
[13:27] Jaket Benelli: noisemaker broadcasting loud and clear
[13:27] Jaket Benelli grins, that should confuse them sir
[13:27] Chase Quinnell: Use our advantage to disable the Romulan ships
[13:28] Vinnie Lei: Cap'n, another ship entering the sector. Too far away to tell yet what it is. I will keep trying.
[13:29] Chase Quinnell: Tactical, fire at their primary reactor during the pass.
[13:29] Chase Quinnell: Helm, take us in towards the Talon class ship.
[13:29] Ebak Naglo: Got it...its another destroyer....Vengeance class
[13:29] Racquel Darwin: Aye sir.
[13:29] Chase Quinnell: Ops, are any Federation ships close enough to assist us?
[13:29] Vinnie Lei: Yes, sir. *programs the computer to fire at the right moment*
[13:29] Racquel Darwin nestles the Redeemer in position for a photon strike at their underbelly.
[13:29] Ebak Naglo: USS Defiant is in the area
[13:30] Chase Quinnell: I thought the Defiant was still assigned to the Alpha Quadrant?
[13:30] Ebak Naglo: Or..the Soa...whatever they call it...what is their official registry
[13:30] Jaket Benelli: they are a little out their current territory aint they?
[13:30] Ebak Naglo shrugs "They're here captain if you want to look for yourself"
[13:30] Racquel Darwin: Tactical, I believe you have them.
[13:30] Chase Quinnell: Odd.
[13:30] Jaket Benelli wonders if his old bud colm is still on the defiant
[13:30] Chase Quinnell: Send them a message asking for assistance.
[13:30] Ebak Naglo: Working
[13:30] Vinnie Lei: They're jamming their transponder codes. We need a visual confirmation.
[13:31] Chase Quinnell: Can you get us a visual, Ops?
[13:31] Racquel Darwin wiggles the Redeemer to avoid too much sensor lock from the RFR ship.
[13:31] Vinnie Lei: *keeps firing phasers to keep 'em away *
[13:31] Chase Quinnell: Tactical, fire on that Vengeance class ship. Helm, keep us just below that ship.
[13:31] Ebak Naglo: no...we're gonna have to get closer...sir...why don't we use the tractor beam to take the Bird of Prey with us? Till we are in range of the Defiant"
[13:31] Racquel Darwin: Aye sir.
[13:32] Chase Quinnell: Aye, engage tractor beam
[13:32] Vinnie Lei: Aye, sir. Firing on the Vengeance ship.
[13:32] Ebak Naglo: Tactical, target the area between the wings and main bridge area, its weak spot
[13:32] Vinnie Lei: Tractor beam engaged.
[13:32]  ::the two Romulan ships fire on the Redeemer::
[13:32] Vinnie Lei: Yes, sir. Firing phasers at that spot.
[13:32] Jaket Benelli: boosting power to tractor beam confinement
[13:32] Racquel Darwin jolts the Redeemer to port.
[13:32] Vinnie Lei: Shields down to 79%.
[13:32] Racquel Darwin: darn!
[13:32] Ebak Naglo: Coordinates sent to helm
[13:32] Racquel Darwin slaps the helm
[13:32] Racquel Darwin: Got them.
[13:33] Jaket Benelli: slight fluctuation in the warp core sir
[13:33] Jaket Benelli: shouldnt be too much of a problem
[13:33] Chase Quinnell: Keep me posted, Jaket.
[13:33] Chase Quinnell: Set course for the Defiant, full impulse.
[13:33] Racquel Darwin works at helm.
[13:34] Ebak Naglo: We're in range, the Defiant is altering course, visual on screen
[13:34] Chase Quinnell looks at the image on the viewer.
[13:35] Chase Quinnell: That LOOKS like the Defiant.
[13:35] Chase Quinnell: Can you tell if its a holo-cloak?
[13:35] Ebak Naglo: Its definately not a holo-cloak, everything checks out
[13:35] Chase Quinnell: Hmm..
[13:35] Ebak Naglo: Registry, its been assigned here on some sort of mission
[13:36] Chase Quinnell: Hail them.
[13:36] Jaket Benelli: sir, something is wrong here
[13:36] Ebak Naglo: Hail from the captain
[13:36] Jaket Benelli: Colm's last message said they should be other side of the quadrant right now
[13:36] Chase Quinnell: Onscreen.
[13:36] Racquel Darwin keeps the Redeemer away from disruptor fire.
[13:36] Chase Quinnell: Then what's going on here?
[13:36] Jaket Benelli: got me sir
[13:36] Racquel Darwin: Sector 31 again, Sir?
[13:38] Kira Nerys: =^= This is captain Kira Nerys of the Starship Defiant...looks like you need some help captain." =^=
[13:38] Chase Quinnell looks skeptical
[13:38] Racquel Darwin's eyes brighten
[13:38] Vinnie Lei raises an eyebrow
[13:38] Chase Quinnell: May I ask what you're doing way off your normal location?
[13:38] Racquel Darwin: Kira?
[13:38] Racquel Darwin: Here?
[13:38] Jaket Benelli: captain, shall i run intensive scans of the defiant?
[13:38] Chase Quinnell nods
[13:38] Kira Nerys: =^= Its...a long story Captain...classified information...cadet Darwin... =^=
[13:39] Chase Quinnell: ::Another hit from the Romulan ships rattles the ship::
[13:39] Jaket Benelli: i should warn you, they will detect it
[13:39] Jaket Benelli runs intensive beam scans
[13:39] Chase Quinnell: Captain, I guess we can talk later. Help us with these Romulans.
[13:39] Jaket Benelli: boosted through the main array
[13:39] Racquel Darwin: Sir, maneuvering thrusters are now offline.
[13:39] Vinnie Lei: darn. Shields now at 70%. Engineering better get those shields more up.
[13:39] Jaket Benelli: rerouting secondary power to shields
[13:39] Kira Nerys: =^= I was wondering when you were gonna get down to business...helm, move us into attack range =^=
[13:40] Racquel Darwin: Aye aye.
[13:40] Vinnie Lei: Shields stabilized at 78%.
[13:40] Jaket Benelli: hmm, sir, this is most odd
[13:40] Racquel Darwin works at helm
[13:40] Jaket Benelli: most odd indeed
[13:40]  ::the Defiant swings around and fires its rapid torpedo launchers. One of the Romulan ships is destroyed::
[13:40] Chase Quinnell: Odd? how?
[13:41] Jaket Benelli: it is defiant, but there seems to be some discrepancies in the scan
[13:41] Jaket Benelli: as if its being baffled
[13:41] Ebak Naglo: There goes the Vengeance
[13:41] Racquel Darwin puts the Redeemer in offensive position after offensive position [13:41] Chase Quinnell: Baffled?
[13:41] Jaket Benelli: aye sir
[13:41] Jaket Benelli: like a signal clash
[13:41] Jaket Benelli: i remember on archers enterprise, sir, we ran into it
[13:41] Chase Quinnell: Elaborate.
[13:42] Jaket Benelli: it was something to do with the shielding frequencies i think
[13:42] Chase Quinnell: Hmm..
[13:42] Jaket Benelli: but i cant remember the details
[13:42] Ebak Naglo: Well...I know Kira Nerys transferred out of the Bajoran Militia into Starfleet and became overseer of DS9..but thats it
[13:42]  ::The Defiant takes another swoop and manages to knock off the last Romulan ship::
[13:43] Racquel Darwin nods
[13:44] Chase Quinnell: Hail the Defiant.
[13:44] Chase Quinnell: I want some answers.
[13:44] Vinnie Lei: Hailing frequencies open.
[13:44] Kira Nerys: =^= Captain. =^=
[13:45] Chase Quinnell: Captain, we've noticed some oddities coming from your ship. Please explain them.
[13:46]  : =^= Kira sighs "We have been given extensive modification to come out here to investigate the odd amount of Romulan and Breen ships in this sector...its not like them but there have been meetings between both parties and Starfleet suspect that the two could be forging an alliance...we have been ordered to get as much information as possible" =^=
[13:47] Chase Quinnell: Hmm..
[13:47] Chase Quinnell motions for the channel to be muted.
[13:47] Vinnie Lei: Channel muted.
[13:48] Chase Quinnell: Ok, I'm not entirely sure of her truthfulness.
[13:48] Jaket Benelli: sir, i think i remember the baffling
[13:48] Ebak Naglo: She's a Bajoran...they can't lie
[13:48] Jaket Benelli: and what was causing it
[13:48] Chase Quinnell: Explain, Jaket.
[13:48] Jaket Benelli: you’re not gonna like this sir
[13:48] Racquel Darwin: Actually my uncle was an Iranian.
[13:48] Jaket Benelli: its an effect of breen shields when they are scanned
[13:49] Chase Quinnell: So she's not really Kira?
[13:49] Jaket Benelli: that would be my guess sir
[13:50] Ebak Naglo: It could be they had modifications done to the ship...that way they wouldn't be recognized as a Starfleet ships from afar.
[13:50] Chase Quinnell: Then what's with the story about an RFR/Breen alliance?
[13:50] Jaket Benelli: she is trying to trick us
[13:50] Chase Quinnell puts his fingers across his chin, thinking.
[13:51] Ebak Naglo: There were romulan ships here sir....and its not like them to be here alot...there were more than there should have been
[13:51] Chase Quinnell: Jaket, maybe Colm wasn't telling you the truth?
[13:51] Ebak Naglo: If they were not our side...they would have attacked us...
[13:52] Jaket Benelli: captain! i have served with colm since he joined starfleet
[13:52] Jaket Benelli: i wouldn’t question his integrity
[13:52] Chase Quinnell: Maybe he was ordered to falsify his message in order to protect their mission.
[13:53] Chase Quinnell: I am really not sure.
[13:53] Ebak Naglo rolls eyes "I still question it...I see nothing wrong with there story...I just picked up some reports, reports say the Defiant is not at DS9 and nor is Kira."
[13:53] Jaket Benelli: hmm, possibly
[13:53] Jaket Benelli: but how do you explain the shields reading as breen?
[13:54] Chase Quinnell: As Ebak mentioned, they may have intentionally modified them like that.
[13:54] Ebak Naglo: As I stated, shields are a way of us IDing a ship from far away, they probably done it to avoid being the center of attention while uncloaked
[13:54] Chase Quinnell: Resume the channel audio
[13:54] Jaket Benelli: i dunno, there’s something about this situation i dont like
[13:54] Ebak Naglo: Aye sir
[13:54] Vinnie Lei: Channel reopened.
[13:54] Ebak Naglo: Resuming
[13:54] Ebak Naglo rolls eyes
[13:55] Chase Quinnell: Hello again, Captain.
[13:55] Kira Nerys: =^= Yes, anyway..if there was anything else captain we really need to be getting back to our task. =^=
[13:56] Chase Quinnell: We'd like to assist you in your mission. The Redeemer is already involved. And this Klingon ship may need an extra contingent of Engineers -- maybe you'd be able to provide some engineers?
[13:57] Kira Nerys: =^= nods "We shall transport some over immediately...but captain...you must understand this must not go beyond your crews eyes and ears, very few people know of our mission" =^=
[13:57] Chase Quinnell: Understood.. captain.
[13:57] Chase Quinnell: Quinnell out.
[13:57] Ebak Naglo: channel closed
[13:57] Chase Quinnell: Ebak, can you attach a tracer to their hull?
[13:58] Chase Quinnell: I want to know where they're going.
[13:58] Ebak Naglo nods "Yeah...but..it would require us to physically launch it onto them..they'd notice that for sure"
[13:58] Chase Quinnell: darn..
[13:58] Jaket Benelli: maybe if you beam over for a chat captain?
[13:58] Jaket Benelli: you could place it inside somewhere then
[13:58] Chase Quinnell: Problem with that is: If they're really Breen, then they'd definitely
decline my visit.
[13:59] Ebak Naglo: If they aren't who they say they are....
[13:59] Ebak Naglo: Why not put it to the test?
[13:59] Jaket Benelli: well then if you ask, we'll know for sure if something is up
[13:59] Chase Quinnell: Why not? Open a channel, Ops.
[14:00] Kira Nerys: =^= Was there something else captain? =^=
[14:00] Chase Quinnell: Captain, I'd like to drop by your ship for a quick talk. There's something I need to discuss with you in person. A transmission may be intercepted.
[14:01] Kira Nerys: =^= nods "Certainly captain, we shall beam you over in 5 minutes" =^=
[14:01] Chase Quinnell looks at his crew with a surprised look
[14:01] Chase Quinnell: Understood. Lt Quinnell out
[14:01] Ebak Naglo: channel closed
[14:01] Jaket Benelli: well now...
[14:01] Vinnie Lei: Ohkay, now that was unexpected.
[14:01] Ebak Naglo: I told you guys...
[14:02] Chase Quinnell: Now I need to figure out what I'm going to say.
[14:02] Chase Quinnell looks puzzled.
[14:02] Ebak Naglo: The truth?
[14:02] Jaket Benelli: the tracer will be waiting for you in transporter room 1 sir
[14:02] Vinnie Lei: Ask her out?
[14:02] Ebak Naglo: Even better
[14:02] Chase Quinnell grins
[14:02] Jaket Benelli: kira go out on a date? hardly
[14:02] Chase Quinnell: Hasn't she been known to get violent?
[14:03] Jaket Benelli: yep
[14:03] Ebak Naglo: Yeah
[14:03] Jaket Benelli: at times
[14:03] Chase Quinnell: Then a date wouldn't be a recommended course of action.
[14:03] Vinnie Lei: Nah, for Klingons it would be childsplay
[14:03] Ebak Naglo: But only when she's angry...I suggest chocolates and flowers
[14:03] Jaket Benelli: it might be the last though
[14:03] Chase Quinnell chuckles.
[14:03] Racquel Darwin: Like all Bajoran females, we can get.. violent.. if we feel threatened.
[14:03] Chase Quinnell: I'll keep that in mind. Racquel.
[14:03] Ebak Naglo: 2 minutes captain
[14:04] Jaket Benelli: tracer is ready
[14:04] Chase Quinnell: I'll be in transporter room 2.
[14:04] Jaket Benelli: sir, id like to put a transponder on you
[14:04] Chase Quinnell nods. "Agreed."
[14:04] Jaket Benelli: we dont want to risk losing you over there
[14:05] Chase Quinnell: Vinnie, you have control of the bridge until I get back.
[14:05] Jaket Benelli: and ive instructed the transporter chief to keep a lock on you
[14:05] Vinnie Lei: Yes, cap'n
[14:05] Chase Quinnell: Energise, Chief.

ON THE DEFIANT BRIDGE

[14:06] Chase Quinnell: Ahh, hello Captain.
[14:06] Kira Nerys: Ah...its nice to see you captain?...
[14:07] Jaket Benelli: =A= transporter room, whats the status of the transporter lock? =A=
[14:07] Trans. Chief: =A= lock is coming through loud and clear sir =A=
[14:07] Chase Quinnell: I've been meaning to discuss a serious issue, regarding the RFR terrorist group.
[14:07] Vinnie Lei: Keep looking for odd things. If they try to do something, they wouldn't tell us.
[14:08] Kira Nerys nods "Let's step into my ready room...so....what is it you want to discuss?"
[14:08] Chase Quinnell: I've noticed some rather.. odd behavior emerging from their Fleet.
[14:08] Chase Quinnell: They've been attacking small colonies.. usually of little importance. Do you know anything about it?
[14:09] Chase Quinnell watches Kira's facial expressions.
[14:10] Kira Nerys nods "So have we, Breen and Romulan ships together don't mean good news...we've even spotted a couple of Valdore class ships among them....as for the colonies attack...we've heard about them but managed to somehow delay them as best we can without being detected...there is a big meeting between high ranking officers today in several hours...we hope to be there and call in a fed task force to round up the romuland and breen vessels."
[14:11] Chase Quinnell: I see.
[14:11] Chase Quinnell doesn't see any unusual behavior coming from Kira's face
[14:11] Kira Nerys: Was there anything else captain?
[14:12] Chase Quinnell: I'd like to sit in on this meeting. I was, after all, involved in the rescue of the Chancellor -- the first known encounter with the RFR.
[14:13] Kira Nerys: Captain...its suicide...you walk in there they'd shoot you down before they even ask a single question...they’re the enemy..not us..the romulans we refer to are the RFR...thats why we are spying on the meeting and not officially involved with it."
[14:14] Chase Quinnell: Ahh, you neglected to mention that.
[14:14] Kira Nerys: I thought I made it clear that the Defiant is not welcome at that party...but with Breen shields on our ship...we could pass off as one...from a distance...
[14:15] Chase Quinnell watches her face intently, trying to seek out any peculiarities
[14:16] Chase Quinnell: Ok. Anything I can do to help?
[14:16] Kira Nerys: The best help you and your ship can do is get out of this area and call for help...we want to ambush that meeting
[14:16] Chase Quinnell activates the tracer that was attached to the wall.
[14:16] Chase Quinnell: Thank you for your time. Understood.
[14:16] Kira Nerys nods and stands inclining her head to the captain "May you walk with the prophets."
[14:16] Chase Quinnell discreetly places a transponder on the wall next to him.
[14:17] Chase Quinnell: Energize, chief.
[14:17] Jaket Benelli hopes the captain had the sense to hide the tracer in an air vent or something
[14:17] Vinnie Lei: cap'n,
[14:17] Chase Quinnell: Resume your normal station, Vinnie.
[14:17] Jaket Benelli: welcome back captain
[14:17] Vinnie Lei: Yes, sir.
[14:17] Chase Quinnell: I didn't see anything wrong with the way she conducted herself.
[14:18] Jaket Benelli: did everything check out over there?
[14:18] Jaket Benelli: well, the bluntness sure sounds like kira
[14:18] Chase Quinnell: The tracer was deployed on the wall next to her desk. It shouldn't be visible unless she looks really hard or moves the desk.
[14:19] Ebak Naglo: She's very suspicious though captain...much like yourself...
[14:19] Jaket Benelli: darwin, are bajorans prone to sudden furnishing changes?
[14:19] Racquel Darwin: Some are, some arent'.
[14:19] Jaket Benelli: i hope kira isnt
[14:19] Racquel Darwin: Depends on their resources.
[14:20] Chase Quinnell: Helm, hold present location. What's the status of our Bird of Prey?
[14:20] Racquel Darwin: During the occupation, not so much.
[14:20] Racquel Darwin: Aye sir, holding.
[14:20] Jaket Benelli: warp core is starting to look better
[14:20] Chase Quinnell: Good.
[14:20] Jaket Benelli: should be repaired in the next 4 hours
[14:20] Jaket Benelli: well, they'll be able to make warp 2 anyway
[14:21] Jaket Benelli: thats the best that can be got out of that core
[14:21] Chase Quinnell: Noted.
[14:22] Jaket Benelli: i recommend we start towing the klingons outsystem at full impulse sir
[14:22] Chase Quinnell: Agreed.
[14:22] Chase Quinnell: Helm, plot a course out of the system and engage full impulse
[14:22] Jaket Benelli: tractor beam holding at 100%
[14:22] Racquel Darwin: Aye, Sir. Full impulse.
[14:23] Racquel Darwin: Engaged.
[14:23] Jaket Benelli: reconfigured for towing
[14:23] Ebak Naglo: The defiant has send us co-ordinates to send to Starfleet
[14:24] Ebak Naglo: Its tagged with message, time of meeting 1 PM starfleet ship time, ambush at 1:30, good luck captain
[14:24] Chase Quinnell: Forward them to Starfleet command.
[14:24] Ebak Naglo works his console
[14:24] Ebak Naglo: Aye aye
[14:25] Chase Quinnell: Ask them to send us an Ambush party.
[14:26] Ebak Naglo: Starfleet say the taskforce is en-route headed up by the USS Bozeman A [14:28]  ::The taskforce arrives, lead by the Bozeman-A::
[14:28] Chase Quinnell: Take us to yellow alert.
[14:28] Racquel Darwin noodles with a minor adjustment of the helm.
[14:28] Chase Quinnell: Status on our Klingon friends? I'd like to have them ready to fight in this battle. I'm sure they'd be very enthusiastic about it.
[14:29] Jaket Benelli: they should be battle capable very soon sir
[14:29] Jaket Benelli: they CAN fight right now sir
[14:29] Jaket Benelli: but at the moment they couldn’t warp out if damaged
[14:29] Chase Quinnell: Bring back all but a handful of our engineers
[14:29] Jaket Benelli: but then, i dont suppose that would much bother a klingon crew
[14:29] Jaket Benelli: aye sir
[14:30] Chase Quinnell: And you're very correct, Jaket
[14:30] Jaket Benelli: they are beaming back now
[14:30] Chase Quinnell: They'd never run from a fight.
[14:30] Chase Quinnell smiles
[14:30] Jaket Benelli: all but 2 engineers returned sir
[14:30] Jaket Benelli: and those 2 volunteered to remain
[14:30] Chase Quinnell: Helm, prepare a course for those ambush coordinates. Engage at warp 7.
[14:30] Ebak Naglo: Sir, captain Reynolds of the Bozeman is hailing us
[14:30] Racquel Darwin: Aye sir.
[14:30] Chase Quinnell: Onscreen
[14:31] Cptn Reynolds: =^= Lt, Captain Kira, Admiral Necheyav, and I have requested that you lead the assualt. =^=
[14:32] Chase Quinnell: Acknowledged, Captain.
[14:32] Chase Quinnell: Is there anything further?
[14:32] Cptn Reynolds: =^= nods "Yes...what's the Klingons doing here?..." =^=
[14:33] Ebak Naglo: Captain...Reynolds is one of the officers of the Bozeman who was dislocated during a time of war with the Klingons..
[14:33] Chase Quinnell: We managed to rescue them from certain destruction by an RFR ship, sir.
[14:33] Chase Quinnell: Noted, Ebak.
[14:33] Cptn Reynolds: =^= I see...that is all captain. Reynolds out =^=
[14:34] Chase Quinnell looks at the chronometer on his CONN
[14:34] Jaket Benelli: nearly zero hour sir
[14:34] Chase Quinnell mumbles, "It's 1327 hours"
[14:35] Chase Quinnell: Helm, how far are we are current speed?
[14:35] Racquel Darwin: Sir, estimated arrival in '14' minutes.
[14:35] Chase Quinnell: Increase to warp 8.
[14:36] Racquel Darwin: Aye sir.
[14:36] Racquel Darwin: 1 minute 20 seconds at new speed.
[14:36]  ::The Redeemer and the fleet arrive at the designated coordinates::
[14:36] Chase Quinnell: Take us out of warp, Cadet
[14:36] Racquel Darwin: Aye sir.
[14:37] Jaket Benelli glances at the screen
[14:37] Jaket Benelli: quite a fleet here sir.
