The Redeemer picks up a Federation distress call while surveying in the Redian II system.
Upon arriving at the location, they discover the distress signal is from another USS Redeemer, a year into the future.. What they find out stuns them all -- The database from the ship's computers report that the ship is attacked by the Terran Empire and all but one crew-member are killed: Lt. JG Reina Beaumont. She was taken prisoner and subjected to torture.
Knowing the future is only the beginning.... what can they do to prevent it from becoming reality?
[12:20] Chase Quinnell: ::Comms recieves a Federation Distress signal::
[12:21] Arilla Aeon: Sir incomming distress signal
[12:21] Chase Quinnell: Put it through.
[12:21] Arilla Aeon: Aye sir
[12:22] Haku Yiyuan slowly looks over the ships systems
[12:22] =/\=Distress call: This is...Redeemer...assistence...attack...=/\=
[12:22] Chase Quinnell: Helm, set course for that signal at maximum warp.
[12:22] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[12:23] michaels Toshi: setting course
[12:23] Reina Beaumont: comfirmed captain, it has the prefix code from this ship, she's Starfleet
[12:23] michaels Toshi: engaging at maximum warp
[12:23] Silkie Dagger wonders for a moment on the ship saying its name was Redeemer...
[12:24] Reina Beaumont: Blush, tie in with my sensors, let's see if she's Federation
[12:24] Arilla Aeon: sir the encryption on this signal its... different but its ..ours
[12:24] Silkie Dagger: On it..
[12:24] Reina Beaumont: and not a counterpart
[12:24] Blush Babii: yes Sir
[12:24] Haku Yiyuan quickly pulls up the ships warp signature and the warp signature of the Redeemer
[12:24] Blush Babii: yes Sir, it has federations marks
[12:24] Reina Beaumont: she's our ship all right
[12:25] Haku Yiyuan: Sir, they have the same warp signature as us sir
[12:25] Chase Quinnell: Our ship?
[12:25] Reina Beaumont: but oh my...look at her
[12:25] Blush Babii: yes Sir
[12:25] Chase Quinnell: ::The ship drops out of warp and the screen shows a battered Sovereign class ship::
[12:25] michaels Toshi: i can see even from my helm sensors that shes banged up
[12:25] Silkie Dagger: She's taken a beating..
[12:25] michaels Toshi: slowing from warp
[12:25] Chase Quinnell: Life signs?
[12:25] Reina Beaumont: ::activates the viewer and the Redeemer appears on screen, what's left of her. Her hull is full of gaps, her starboard nacelle is torn off, her port nacelle barely intact::
[12:26] Reina Beaumont: not detecting any life signs, captain, she's at very minimal power
[12:26] Haku Yiyuan shakes his head at the site of the torn sovereign
[12:26] Chase Quinnell: Then who sent the distress call?
[12:26] Arilla Aeon: shall i try to open hail?
[12:26] Chase Quinnell: Negative.
[12:26] Reina Beaumont: trying to make a link to her computers, I believe the hail was automatic
[12:27] michaels Toshi: should we send an away team?
[12:27] Reina Beaumont: Silkie, is there anywhere on her we can beam over to?
[12:27] Chase Quinnell: I doubt their's any atmosphere left on that ship
[12:27] Silkie Dagger: It looks like the bridge is safe.. beat up, but safe.
[12:27] Reina Beaumont: the bridge might have minimal life support, the rest of the ship has been exposed to space
[12:27] Haku Yiyuan: It seems their life support is only at 25% capacity sir
[12:28] Reina Beaumont: it should be enough for a few minutes, we can download her logs and find out what happened
[12:28] Chase Quinnell: Lets get down there then. I want to see what the hell happened on that ship.
[12:28] Reina Beaumont: captain, me and Michaels will go
[12:29] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[12:29] Chase Quinnell: Very well.
[12:29] Chase Quinnell: Report anything you find.
[12:29] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[12:30] Haku Yiyuan: Something doesnt feel right about this sir
[12:30] Chase Quinnell: I agree.
[12:30] Chase Quinnell: The rest of you, meet me in the meeting room.
[12:30] Arilla Aeon: aye sir
[12:30] Silkie Dagger: Aye, Sir.
[12:30] Haku Yiyuan: Aye Sir
[12:30] Blush Babii: yes Sir
[12:31] Blush Babii: Sir, is it possible that there are two same ships in starfleet that we dont know?
[12:32] Chase Quinnell: I doubt it.
[12:32] Blush Babii: hmm
[12:32] Haku Yiyuan: Not with the same warp Signature
[12:32] Blush Babii: we should contact the fleet.
[12:32] Reina Beaumont: =/\=We're aboard captain=/\=
[12:32] Chase Quinnell: We will, once we find out what happened.
[12:33] Chase Quinnell: =A= Understood, Reina =A=
[12:33] Reina Beaumont: =/\=the damage is severe, it looks like there was a firefight=/\=
[12:33] Silkie Dagger waits to hear what is going on on the other ship.
[12:33] Reina Beaumont: Michaels, downloads the logs from the Ops station, all the logs from every station should be there
[12:33] michaels Toshi: =A= dont know if there will be much of the computer core left=A=
[12:33] Reina Beaumont: I'll check the security logs
[12:35] Blush Babii: Sir can i get their science logs, maybe i can use it to find out what happened
[12:35] Reina Beaumont: ::checks the Security logs, and uploads them to the Redeemer::
[12:35] michaels Toshi uploads the logs of the stations, lots of holes in the logs
[12:35] Reina Beaumont: =/\=Captain, the logs say that the ship was attacked suddenly, she suffered severe damage, she was boarded. All but one of her crew were killed=/\=
[12:35] Reina Beaumont: whatever happened here, it was fast and it was brutal
[12:35] Silkie Dagger looks down at the table.
[12:35] michaels Toshi: they targeted all the key systems
[12:36] Haku Yiyuan shakes his head for a second
[12:36] michaels Toshi: the computer core is offline and secondary command processor destroyed too
[12:36] Chase Quinnell: =A= I see.. =A=
[12:35] Blush Babii: who was the lucky one?
[12:36] Reina Beaumont: =/\=Me. I was kidnapped after being hit with kind of weapon, it triggered my regression, the captain was killed seconds later, they took me and left the ship. The sensors show the ship fell into a temporal rift, it's still nearby=/\=
[12:36] Haku Yiyuan: Is it possible to pull the computer core over sir?
[12:36] Reina Beaumont: =/\=We should be able to, I'll do that=/\=
[12:36] Reina Beaumont: Michaels, return to the ship
[12:36] Chase Quinnell: =A= Sounds like a very pleasing future. Any way to prevent it? =A=
[12:36] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[12:37] michaels Toshi beams to the bridge
[12:37] Reina Beaumont: =/\=I'm not sure yet, captain, but we'll think of something=/\=
[12:38] Haku Yiyuan: I beleive we have room in Cargo bay 2 for the computer core sir
[12:38] Reina Beaumont: =/\=Lieutenant Beaumont to Redeemer, one to beam back=/\=
[12:39] Reina Beaumont: the news is bad, Captain
[12:39] Chase Quinnell: Bad news?
[12:39] Reina Beaumont: here are all the logs me and Michaels got from the computer
[12:40] Reina Beaumont: we were attacked by the Terren Empire in this system a year from now, they took us by surprise
[12:40] Chase Quinnell: And why did this ship end up a year in the past?
[12:40] michaels Toshi: a temporal rift
[12:40] michaels Toshi: it's still close by
[12:40] Reina Beaumont: it fell through a temporal rift, it's still nearby, it's going to be open for another four days
[12:41] Reina Beaumont: most likely it was caused when the Redeemer managed to destroy one of the Terren Empire ships
[12:41] Chase Quinnell: I see.
[12:41] Reina Beaumont: she was disabled minutes later, boarded and her crew were vaporised
[12:42] Reina Beaumont: they boarded the bridge and we all fought back, but no one survived, the attackers vaporised all but you and me, Captain
[12:42] michaels Toshi: lucky....
[12:42] Silkie Dagger tries not to flinch at the thought of being vaporized.
[12:42] Reina Beaumont: the Security logs show I jumped in front of you to protect you, and was hit with an odd weapon, it triggered my regression and reduced me to a toddler, you were then vaporised second later
[12:43] michaels Toshi doesnt like the thought he walked on his ashes
[12:43] Reina Beaumont: they took me and left, the ship was drifting and fell through the temporal rift, her automatic distress call was still active
[12:43] Chase Quinnell: I see.
[12:43] Chase Quinnell: Well... we can't let this future become reality.
[12:44] Silkie Dagger: I agree.
[12:44] Chase Quinnell: I don't like the thought of being vaporized.
[12:44] michaels Toshi: me either
[12:44] michaels Toshi: and seeing the dust left on the helm console was probably me. i felt sick [12:44] Reina Beaumont: I can use the logs from the future Redeemer to see if we can adapt our weapons to cause harm to the Terren Empire ships, but they will likely adapt once they know we have the know how to hurt them
[12:45] Chase Quinnell: Sounds like another group of evils I know.
[12:45] Reina Beaumont: what will we do now, captain?
[12:45] Haku Yiyuan: I happen to be part of that thank you
[12:45] Chase Quinnell: But unfortunatly, the Terran Empire "assimilated" that bunch in the mirror universe.
[12:46] Chase Quinnell: Well, Haku, I've had some bad experiences with Borg in the past, forgive me.
[12:46] Reina Beaumont: we could go through the rift and try to save the future Reina, but if they could do that kind of damage just by being gentle, then I dread to think what they would do in a full attack
[12:46] Reina Beaumont: as have I, thankfully we're finding ex-drones now
[12:46] michaels Toshi: i met the queen once. terrifying....
[12:47] Haku Yiyuan: I would try and reconfigure the shield harmonics and the phasers before we try anything drastic
[12:47] Reina Beaumont: we could call for back up, but they might not get here in time
[12:47] Chase Quinnell: Well, Reina, I think we may need to take a little backup with us.
[12:47] Reina Beaumont: I'll see what ships are closet
[12:47] Reina Beaumont: we only have four days though, captain, I don't know how long a rescue might take
[12:48] Chase Quinnell: Ok, people, we're going to need to be on high alert.
[12:48] Blush Babii: i will analyse rift to see if i can get any useful information Sir
[12:48] Haku Yiyuan: Also, the rift may take us to a different time period, We may need to send a probe in first
[12:48] Chase Quinnell: Reina, run training drills. We will need to be at our highest efficiency.
[12:48] Reina Beaumont: it will take us to a year from now
[12:48] Reina Beaumont: aye captain, I'll begin as soon as this briefing is completed [12:49] Chase Quinnell: Agreed, Haku. I want a probe prepared by Ops and Engineering.
[12:49] Silkie Dagger nods
[12:49] Silkie Dagger: Aye, Sir
[12:49] Chase Quinnell: Inform UF Starfleet Command that we will need assistance.
[12:49] Reina Beaumont: they were brutal, captain, and they know how to hurt me
[12:49] Haku Yiyuan: Aye sir
[12:50] Reina Beaumont: it's the only way i can be harmed
[12:50] Reina Beaumont: I dread to think what they're doing to her right now
[12:50] Chase Quinnell: Science, is there any way to counter-effect the gun they use to send Reina out of immortality?
[12:50] Blush Babii thinks ..poor Blush in the future
[12:51] Blush Babii: not with our technology sir no..
[12:51] Blush Babii: but i will try to anyalse to see if we can do something
[12:51] Reina Beaumont: the logs kept a reading of the weapon they used
[12:51] Chase Quinnell: Ok, inform me of any progress.
[12:51] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[12:51] Blush Babii: yes Sir
[12:51] Reina Beaumont: I'll see what ships can help us
[12:51] michaels Toshi thinks he will need more piloting classes
[12:52] Chase Quinnell: Very well, dismissed. Make sure your departments are working at peak efficiency.
[12:53] Reina Beaumont: =/\=Lieutentant Beaumont to Security, report to me at 18:00 hours for farther training=/\=
[12:53] Haku Yiyuan: Sir,Im going to go down to Cargo bay 2 and see what i can pull off of the Computer core
[12:53] Reina Beaumont: ::checks for any ships in the area:: Captain, the USS Majestic and the USS Farragut are within five hours of us
[12:54] michaels Toshi: Engineering could i also get a level 1 diagnostic of the engines?
[12:54] Blush Babii starts anylaysing ship logs for their weapons
[12:54] Reina Beaumont: a Prometheus class and an Akira class
[12:54] Chase Quinnell: Have them meet us at this location.
[12:54] Reina Beaumont: aye captain, hailing them
[12:54] Haku Yiyuan: Engines are running at running at optimal performance
[12:54] Reina Beaumont: they'll be with us in five hours, sooner if they increase their speed
[12:55] Reina Beaumont: ::Five hours pass::
[12:55] Reina Beaumont: The USS Farragut and Majestic are entering the system, captain
[12:55] Chase Quinnell: Hail them
[12:56] Reina Beaumont: aye, opening a channel
[12:56] Reina Beaumont: =/\=We heard you needed help, how may we be of assistence?=/\=
[12:56] Chase Quinnell: We have a minor temporal difficulty.. sending you the data now.
[12:56] Reina Beaumont: =/\=Hmm, what are your suggestions?=/\=
[12:57] Chase Quinnell: We're going to go through the rift and rescue the last survivor of our future selves, Lt. Jg Beaumont.
[12:57] Reina Beaumont: =/\=If the Terren Empire is as powerful as the reports say, we could be waking into our deaths=/\=
[12:58] Chase Quinnell: Would you rather my crew live with the knowledge we will all die in one year?
[12:58] Haku Yiyuan quickly gets the sheild harmonics and phaser changes
[12:58] Reina Beaumont: =/\=No, of course not. But how can we defend against them?=/\=
[12:59] Chase Quinnell: We have had experience with them in the past, and we have studied their tactical strategies and systems.
[13:00] Haku Yiyuan: I have created changes to the shields and the phasers that should give us a better chance sir
[13:00] Reina Beaumont: =/\=Very well, then may we have success. Send us any information you have that you've not yet sent, we'll all find a way to fight them=/\=
[13:00] Chase Quinnell: Thank you, Quinnell out.
[13:00] Reina Beaumont: Security is ready, captain, all crew is reporting ready
[13:01] Chase Quinnell: Very good.
[13:01] Reina Beaumont: I don't know how my future self figured out how to destroy one Terren Empire ship, but she bought the Redeemer a few minutes
[13:01] Chase Quinnell: But it didn't save them, unfortunately.
[13:01] Reina Beaumont: no, sadly
[13:01] Reina Beaumont: and right now, she's probably being destroyed inside and out, probably just for some sadastic joy
[13:02] Reina Beaumont: she watched the crew die, she watched her captain be killed in front of her
[13:03] Reina Beaumont: even if we manage to save her, she's going to be scarred and mentally unstable
[13:03] Chase Quinnell: True.
[13:03] Arilla Aeon: i know the feeling
[13:03] Chase Quinnell: Is the fleet ready?
[13:03] Reina Beaumont: they're ready, captain, Blush has come up with a way we can fight them
[13:03] Chase Quinnell: Oh?
[13:03] Blush Babii: yes Sir
[13:04] Reina Beaumont: if we hit them hard in their port shields near to the nacelles, we may have a chance, I believe Blush may have a way to farther our chances
[13:04] Blush Babii: we can used the same method as it was used in the future Sir
[13:04] Blush Babii: yes, their weak point
[13:04] Blush Babii: it worked once....
[13:04] Reina Beaumont: it might work again
[13:05] Chase Quinnell: Well then, Ensign, take us into the rift.
[13:05] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[13:05] Chase Quinnell: Signal the other ships to follow.
[13:05] michaels Toshi: taking us in
[13:05] Reina Beaumont: and may whatever deity watch over us all
[13:05] Silkie Dagger hopes this works
[13:05] michaels Toshi is worried
[13:05] Reina Beaumont: going to red alert
[13:05] Silkie Dagger: I've sent the signal, Sir.
[13:06] Reina Beaumont: we're entering the rift, minor power grid issue, they're being dealt with
[13:06] Chase Quinnell: ::The ship hits a bit of turbulance::
[13:06] Reina Beaumont: the Farragut and Majestic are holding formation behind us
[13:06] Reina Beaumont: we're clear, captain
[13:07] Reina Beaumont: ::The ship is hit hard::
[13:07] Chase Quinnell: Very go----What the?!
[13:07] Reina Beaumont: we're under attack, captain, four ships were waiting for us!
