As it enters the Pinastri system, the Sheppard finds that the Nabraithians have laid waste to everything, with only Cascadia still somewhat intact.
Captain's log, Stardate 110326.
The Sheppard is finally on approach to Pinastri and I'm afraid we are too late. Long-range sensors are not detecting any large movements of ships or communications. What we are detecting is a lot of radiation and what looks to be debris. Tthere have been no signs of any further Federation or enemy vessels. We have detected some signals in the direction of Excalibur and if we do not find any survivors or an explanation as to where the fleet is, that will be our next port of call.
The crew are on edge; Frosty is all but incapacitated, she has had some sort of breakdown and keeps telling us everything is not right. Reports from medical say that during the battle she was roaming the ship trying to scan and locate something. This entire situation is not right but it's quite obvious from her behaviour that cracks are starting to form in the crew and their morale. I just hope we can hold it together long enough to get through this.
Computer, end log.
As the Sheppard approached the Pinastri system, the crew ran scans and found no communications signals or warp signatures - what they did find, however, was a large amount of radiation. Entering the system near Pinastri VI confirmed their worst fears, as they came across debris that they identified as remnants of Starfleet infrastructures. Worse, Pinastri Prime was found destroyed in a manner similar to the planets in the Bedrock and Veoi systems.
However, Tactical and Operations were able to positively identify Cascadia, which was somewhat intact despite an explosion of its main reactor. Since survivors had been located, two away teams were sent down. The first one, led by the Captain herself, quickly found survivors and proceeded to sickbay, where Dr. Dimsum and Lady Byrna remained to aid the wounded. Others from the first team rendez-vous'd with the second away team, led by Executive Officer Pedlar Blaisdale, in order to assist the Cascadia crew in trying to get to Engineering to stabilize the core. They gained access to Engineering - with difficulty - through the Science Lab; however, just as they were starting to work on a coolant leak, orders came from Captain Dwi to evacuate the station - a joint Nabraithian-Urechta fleet was closing in.
After Cascadia's self-destruct sequence had been initiated, station survivors were beamed onto Sheppard and the ship managed to outrun the enemy fleet and hide inside a nebula before setting course for the Excalibur system.
