Commanding Officer Poison Toocool - Log, Stardate 120906:
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.
We disabled one of the three pirate vessels after they swooped in through the disengaged planet shield and attacked. We managed to beam the civilian prisoners off the first ship before the other two were in weapons range. Suddenly the two other ships decloaked and our cunning plan went amiss. We were assisted in defence by the Huit, but unfortunately they took heavy damage and were abandoning ship as they ejected their warp core. It exploded near the two pirate vessels. Our efforts at proper defence were confused by false distress calls and false messages from Federation vessels. Our job right now is to get the ship's systems fully back online, rescue the crew of the Huit, and figure out how the pirates have access to Federation technology... and assess the condition of the pirate vessels. Is our Task Force on its way? Right now, we are sure of nothing.

Reporting: Commander Genny7 Markus, USS Argonaut, Stardate 120908 - Location: 6 ly trailing Astraios
Having taken over Command from the Captain who was suffering from the vertigo again and had returned to her quarters to rest, my first duty was to receive the reports from the bridge staff on the condition of our ship. We have taken a lot of damage but, as the good crew that they are, work is under way to make repairs, the most serious of which have already been completed. We are at least fit enough to move the ship even if not quite ready to engage another pirate ship.With my regrets the Huitz crew did not get off so lightly: 12 are dead, with 350 evacuees from that ship and of those 4% are critical. Our crew however, got off with minor injuries. Both reports from OPS and Helm were good and from Engineering we have 80% of our power to the engines. Security had some difficulties with the report but was finally able to confirm that two of the birds of prey had been disabled and the third had landed on the planet damaged. It was also reported that unless the scans were still not working properly, the Task Force of 4-6 UFS Cruisers were 2 hours distance from us. The report from the Huitz was that although they had ejected their warp core and were badly damaged life support was still online so a security team was dispatched with both science and engineering teams to try to get her repairs under way.
Time to go and see what the condition of the pirate ship that had landed on the planet was, it was at that moment that OPS reported the the Huitz had exploded, my first thought was for the crew we had just sent over there but I was informed that all had been transported back to us safely.
Time to give the order to return to the planet, Helm advised me that we would arrive in 5 minutes so I touched my combadge and told all hands to stand to their stations as we were returning to the planet. Science opened the planet's grid for us, we raised our shields and went to yellow alert, and we started scanning the pirate ship for signs of life and damage. It was reported to me that there were 20 life signs but that the ship was badly damaged. Helm on my instructions took us in to land near the vessel, and the ship was secured. Security had already advised both security and Marines to be standby and after closing the shield we made our finally arrangements before dispatching the security and Marines to investigate the pirate ship. What will we find? is this Zhieela's ship?...
