A plan to lure enemy ships away from the Sheppard and the Denmark puts the Captain in harm's way.
Location: Midgar Sector.
Executive Officer's log, Stardate 101020.
Having escaped from the Merc base, the USS Denmark under my command is attempting to disengage towards Federation space under the shepherding of the USS Sheppard.
However, due to our small crew complement we have not yet been able to conduct a througrh survey of the vessel.
From information gained from the Sheppard's sensors, we appear to be emitting a signal of some sort. We are now attempting to determine what it is saying but we fear the worst.
The away team operating the USS Denmark confirmed that an alien tracking device had been affixed to the ship by the mercenaries. They managed to remove the device and beam it to the Sheppard's shuttle bay. Captain Dwi devised a plan to install the device and use that shuttle as a decoy in order to draw the mercenaries into an ambush.
The captain piloted the shuttle herself, with Engineering Ensign XZoeyX Fhang along for the ride. Three mercenary ships did engage the shuttle. Sheppard managed to destroy two of them and disable the third, but not before the shuttle took severe damage, to the point that Captain Dwi and Ensign Fhang had to beam out into space in their EVA suits. They were retrieved by the Sheppard with severe injuries, to the point that Captain Dwi was deemed to be between life and death.
