The Redeemer arrived at Pinastri after their launch, and are immediately sent out on a mission to answer a distress call.
Captain's Log, Stardate 070928: We are on our way to the Janus VI mining colony after recieving an urgent distress call. If my suspicions are correct, we may have another encounter with the Andorian rebels.
While responding to a distress call from the Janus VI colony the Redeemer encounters a force of rebel Andorians and engages in battle. The battle opens with two Type 2 Andorian Cruisers which the Redeemer is able to dispatch easily. The rebels call in a trump card, a modified Dominion Battlecruiser as reinforcements. Unable to match them gun to gun Ensign Minako Yoshiyuki hatches a plan to destroy the cruiser by using a nearby nebula. The Redeemer lures the enemy vessel into the nebula then ignites the gasses as they warp out to safety. Following the destruction of the vessel in the nebula the Redeemer proceeds to Janus VI and calls in a nearby medical vessel for support. Captain Quinnell sends a priority message to Starfleet Command informing them of the battlecruiser in the possession of the rebels worries what other surprises they might have in store.
[16:17] Chase Quinnell: Helm, what's our ETA?
[16:17] Mulgrave Dwi: sir at our current speed ETA 6 minutes
[16:18] Chase Quinnell: Tactical, I want shields and weapons at the ready by the time we drop out of warp.
[16:18] Reina Beaumont: Tactical systems operating at peak performance sir
[16:18] Reina Beaumont: aye sir
[16:18] Reina Beaumont: ::Readies the full charge up of the shields and phasers just in case::
[16:19] Chase Quinnell: ::The ship arrives at the coordinates and is immediately fired upon by an Andorian terrorist ship.::
[16:19] Minako Yoshiyuki: sir!!
[16:19] Chase Quinnell: Yes, Minako?
[16:19] Reina Beaumont: ::with the shields up and weapons charged, the damage isn't too severe:: Shields down to 98%
[16:19] Mulgrave Dwi begins evasive manoeuvres
[16:19] Reina Beaumont: get me a good shot at them
[16:19] Minako Yoshiyuki: scanning the rebel ships
[16:20] Chase Quinnell: Helm, bring us about so we have a good shot.
[16:20] Mulgrave Dwi: aye sir not a problem
[16:20] Chase Quinnell: Tactical, when able fire at their shield generators.
[16:20] Reina Beaumont: ::Targets their shields, weapons and engines:: Got them, sir, they must have not been expecting that shot
[16:20] Mulgrave Dwi brings ship about bearing on vector 2.34.6, assault Charlie
[16:20] Minako Yoshiyuki: analysis complete, Andorian type 2 battle cruisers
[16:21] Chase Quinnell: Let's show these Andorian rebels how the Federation deals with outlaws.
[16:21] Minako Yoshiyuki: they have good armament and shield capacities
[16:21] Mulgrave Dwi swaps back to evasive manoeuvres beta 2
[16:21] Reina Beaumont: ::Fires directly at their shield generators and they explode. Then targets and destroys their weapons::
[16:22] Mulgrave Dwi avoiding the flanking manoeuvre, dwi turns the ship about assault vector alpha 3
[16:22] Chase Quinnell: ::Another 2 Andorian ships come in a flanking formation and fire.
[16:22] Reina Beaumont: got you now ::targets their engines and disables them::
[16:23] Minako Yoshiyuki: humph....these are too easy
[16:23] Mulgrave Dwi raises ship out of the assault vector and performs a quick Picard manoeuvre to evade the flanking move
[16:23] Reina Beaumont: shields down to 70%, they're getting some hard hits in
[16:23] Mulgrave Dwi: I can’t evade them forever sir,
[16:23] Chase Quinnell: Hmm....
[16:23] Reina Beaumont: then just get me a good shot at their engines
[16:23] Minako Yoshiyuki: I recommend a quick volley of quantum torpedoes sir
[16:24] Mulgrave Dwi turns the ship about placing the one of the Andorian ships between each other, lowering their firing angle
[16:24] Mulgrave Dwi: assault vector tango 1, "that should give you a shot on their engines reina"
[16:24] Reina Beaumont: here goes ::opens fire on the ships, disabling their engines and causing them severe damage to their weapons::
[16:25] Reina Beaumont: nothing else on sensors sir, I think that's all of them for now
[16:25] Chase Quinnell: Let's stay wary of any more visitors. Hold position.
[16:26] Mulgrave Dwi smiles "until they repair their systems reina"
[16:26] Reina Beaumont: scanning...other than the disabled ships and the mining colony, we seem to be clear for now
[16:26] Mulgrave Dwi: aye sir holding position approximately 20,000 km from the rebel forces
[16:26] Reina Beaumont: and if they do, I’ll blow their systems up again
[16:26] Mulgrave Dwi smiles faintly
[16:27] Chase Quinnell: ::Sensors detect a large ship coming in at high warp. It appears to be a larger, heavily armed version of the disabled ships.::
[16:27] Mulgrave Dwi: they don’t like to talk much do they sir
[16:27] Chase Quinnell: Obviously not..
[16:27] Minako Yoshiyuki: this one is more heavily armed than the others
[16:27] Reina Beaumont: okay, now we have a problem, from what my console's saying, this ship has several banks of heavy disruptors and several dozen torpedo ports
[16:28] Chase Quinnell: Great...
[16:28] Chase Quinnell: This ought to be fun.
[16:28] Mulgrave Dwi: evasive manoeuvres then, we got anywhere to hide in the system or are we falling back sir?
[16:28] Reina Beaumont: I've got all the scans I can get sir, we'll need to look them over to find a weak spot
[16:29] Minako Yoshiyuki: I can't see a visible weakness that things a flying fortress
[16:29] Reina Beaumont: everything has a weakness
[16:29] Mulgrave Dwi: sir they are on approach, your orders?
[16:29] Minako Yoshiyuki: maybe we could outsmart it....
[16:30] Chase Quinnell: What do you have in mind, Minako?
[16:30] Reina Beaumont: I was just thinking that, how about we use the tractor beam, tow the disabled ships over to it and make them have some fun with that ship, head on?
[16:30] Minako Yoshiyuki: I'm detecting a class 12 nebula to the starboard side...we could ignite some of the gases in there
[16:31] Minako Yoshiyuki: it's risky for us but it has a high percentage of success
[16:31] Chase Quinnell: Sounds like a plan. How do we get them in there?
[16:31] Mulgrave Dwi smiles "sounds like the kind of dangerous plan I’m proud to be a part of"
[16:31] Reina Beaumont: we could lure them with a false signal, make them think we're on the other side of the nebula
[16:31] Mulgrave Dwi: or just have them follow us in and get out before they do
[16:32] Mulgrave Dwi: we can vent some warp plasma make it look like we are injured and hiding in the nebula
[16:32] Reina Beaumont: I doubt they'll be that easily fooled to just follow us in...unless we make them want something from us
[16:32] Minako Yoshiyuki: exactly
[16:32] Chase Quinnell: Hmm...
[16:33] Reina Beaumont: sir, let's give them a false power signal, make them think there's something powerful on the ship
[16:33] Mulgrave Dwi: if they think we are powerful they will be more wary and not follow us
[16:33] Mulgrave Dwi: we just disabled four of their ships they are going to come after us
[16:33] Reina Beaumont: ok if we just make it look like its offline, but still showing power readings
[16:34] Mulgrave Dwi: captain we are running out of time I read them on approach
[16:34] Chase Quinnell: Hmm... Minako, make it so.
[16:34] Reina Beaumont: shields won't last against that beast
[16:34] Mulgrave Dwi: we will be clear of the blast reina trust me
[16:34] Minako Yoshiyuki: aye sir
[16:35] Minako Yoshiyuki: venting drive plasma
[16:35] Mulgrave Dwi moves us about erratically towards the nebula....
[16:35] Reina Beaumont: it's not the blast I'm concerned about, that ship is a heavily modified Dominion Battleship
[16:35] Minako Yoshiyuki: *smiles* looks like they're taking the bait
[16:36] Mulgrave Dwi how long till they are in weapons range reina?
[16:36] Minako Yoshiyuki: 5 minutes to nebula penetration, we'll lose all sensors once we enter
[16:36] Reina Beaumont: I'll time a phaser burst once the warp plasma is released, once they get in range of the plasma, I'll detonate
[16:36] Reina Beaumont: 1 minute till they're in weapon's range
[16:36] Chase Quinnell: Good, do it.
[16:36] Minako Yoshiyuki: darn
[16:36] Reina Beaumont: ::sets up a timed phaser burst::
[16:36] Mulgrave Dwi pushes the engines some more, engaging warp at a short burst
[16:37] Mulgrave Dwi: there we should be on approach to the nebula, you should wait until we are nearly thru the nebula before we fire
[16:37] Reina Beaumont: no problem, I'm keeping tabs on the enemy ship
[16:37] Chase Quinnell: Aye, let's see how this works.
[16:37] Mulgrave Dwi: it’s what we got
[16:37] Minako Yoshiyuki: entering nebula, sensors are offline
[16:38] Chase Quinnell: Acknowledged.
[16:38] Reina Beaumont: ::gets ready::
[16:38] Mulgrave Dwi the ship glides into the nebula, short range sensors go blank
[16:38] Mulgrave Dwi moves the ship to full impulse at a 30 degree angle
[16:38] Mulgrave Dwi: how long till we are out?
[16:39] Reina Beaumont: they're following us in, the shields of that ship are failing
[16:39] Mulgrave Dwi doubles back under the dominion ship
[16:39] Reina Beaumont: okay, ready when you are
[16:39] Chase Quinnell: Are we out?
[16:39] Mulgrave Dwi hoping they aint got better sensors than us
[16:40] Reina Beaumont: they haven't detected us, their sensors must have been knocked off line by the nebula
[16:40] Mulgrave Dwi: approaching the edge now sir, on your mark we can fire and engage warp sir
[16:40] Chase Quinnell: Ready....
[16:40] Mulgrave Dwi holds ready
[16:40] Reina Beaumont: ready
[16:40] Chase Quinnell: Fire and engage warp!
[16:41] Reina Beaumont: ::fires on the warp plasma just as the enemy ship realises what we've done, the explosion catches it and all that's visible is the explosion::
[16:41] Mulgrave Dwi engages a quick burst warp 5
[16:41] Mulgrave Dwi: how long till the shockwave hits us?
[16:41] Minako Yoshiyuki: got him!!!
[16:41] Reina Beaumont: I think we got them, they must have tried to turn round only to be hit from all sides
[16:41] Chase Quinnell: Take us to maximum warp [warp 9+]
[16:41] Mulgrave Dwi the ship shudders at the warp gradient , as dwi pushes us to warp 9.816
[16:41] Chase Quinnell: We don't want to be hit by that shockwave.
[16:42] Minako Yoshiyuki: we're out of range sir
[16:42] Mulgrave Dwi the ship rumbles from some interference of the shockwave however it peters out quickly
[16:42] Chase Quinnell: Take us out of warp.
[16:42] Mulgrave Dwi: we are out of range sir
[16:42] Reina Beaumont: ::The ship makes it, barely, the shockwave dies by the time it hits our shields::
[16:42] Mulgrave Dwi: aye sir disengaging warp
[16:43] Mulgrave Dwi: we are out of warp
[16:43] Reina Beaumont: sir, I think we've got a clear run to the colony
[16:43] Mulgrave Dwi: was the mining colony hit at all?
[16:43] Chase Quinnell: Aye, check the sensors for colony status.
[16:43] Minako Yoshiyuki: I think we got to them in time
[16:43] Reina Beaumont: slightly, it held up for the most part, but there will likely be injured
[16:44] Chase Quinnell: Send out a message for the nearest medical ship to rendezvous with the colony.
[16:44] Chase Quinnell: Set course for Janus VI and engage at warp 8.
[16:45] Reina Beaumont: aye sir ::Sends out a hail:: The nearest medical ship will reach the colony in ten minutes
[16:45] Mulgrave Dwi: aye sir course set engaging now
[16:45] Mulgrave Dwi ships glides a lot smoother this time to warp 8
[16:45] Chase Quinnell: Indeed.
[16:46] Reina Beaumont: a modified Dominion Battleship, I doubt that's the only one they had
[16:46] Mulgrave Dwi: I think the engineers must of sorted that turbulence sir
[16:46] Mulgrave Dwi: well I doubt the dominion just give them out
[16:46] Mulgrave Dwi: they can’t have many surely.
[16:46] Chase Quinnell: Agreed. We will need to notify Starfleet command. I don't know how the hell they got that cruiser, but we need to make it a priority to find all of them.
[16:47] Reina Beaumont: they probably salvaged them, the amounts of battles there were in the Dominion War would have left a lot of ruined ships that were still useable
[16:47] Mulgrave Dwi: there have been reports of dominion remnants left over from the war as well
[16:48] Reina Beaumont: they've become more than rebels now, with those ships they're a threat to everyone
[16:48] Mulgrave Dwi: approaching Janus VI sir
[16:48] Chase Quinnell: I feel that this isn't a simple hit, steal, run operation. I think they are planning an invasion.
[16:48] Mulgrave Dwi drops out of warp and dwi pushes the ship to full impulse for inter system transport
[16:48] Minako Yoshiyuki: a invasion sir?
