Captains log, stardate 110507
We have arrived to reinforce the defence fleet orbiting Outpost Alpha on Al Raqis two days ago. Under the command of the USS Colossus we have joined formation with the USS Normandy and the USS Arnhem.
Our arrival has given the fleet the opportunity to patrol the system and so we hold station with the USS Colossus while the Arnhem and the Normandy patrol the system.
I have been in discussion with the officer in charge of Outpost Alpha, Leo Ravenheart and we have a set of surprise drills for the outpost. We will be attacking at 1030 today.

The crew of the Menelaus fight bravely along side their colleagues of Outpost Alpha, while the ship, along with the USS Colossus defend the planet from a 6 ship strong Myrmidon fleet.
The Colossus & Menelaus are badly damaged in the ensuing battle but manage to hold the line. Reinforced by the timely arrival of the Normandy and the Arnhem they can begin repairs and count their dead.
The planet side battle was equally violent and also costly in lives but the line was held to. The Myrmidon assault troops are clearly well trained and battle hardened and retreat to regroup having lost their fleet support.
