The Redeemer just discovered a new M-Class planet on radar. It appears to be home to a civilization with technology equal to that of mid 21st century Earth(2064). It is currently in orbit over the planet.
The Redeemer starts to monitor the civilization's daily lives. It is apparent the species has already established a world-peace relationship. Their government turns out to be similer to that of 21st century's United States. Tactical picks up a ship orbiting the second moon of the planet. The starship doesn't conform to any known configurations.
The unknown vessel's tactical systems are no match for the Redeemer.
Scans of the moon show a large monitoring station. It's possible that the owners of this monitoring station are explorers interested in the pre-warp civilization.
[12:01] Chase Quinnell: Well, what do you think? A pre-warp civilization.
[12:01] Chase Quinnell: I think it's about time we got the chance to do a bit of exploring.
[12:01] Silkie Dagger: It should be interesting to observe, Sir.
[12:01] michaels Toshi: my first in the delta quadrant
[12:01] Chase Quinnell: Indeed Michaels.
[12:01] griff Beeks: very interesting sir... never had a chance to see one this up close..
[12:02] Chase Quinnell: Silkie, zoom in on the capital city.
[12:03] Silkie Dagger zooms in on the capital city.
[12:03] Chase Quinnell: Amazing
[12:03] michaels Toshi: theyre doing better than humanity in its own infancy
[12:03] Silkie Dagger: It seems quite vibrant.
[12:03] Chase Quinnell: It appears they have an intricate zoning system.
[12:04] Silkie Dagger: Zoning?
[12:04] Chase Quinnell: Zoning refers to how they choose to lay out the city
[12:04] Chase Quinnell: One area is zoned strictly for commercial use
[12:04] Chase Quinnell: While another is suburban
[12:04] Chase Quinnell: Sometimes there may be a mix.
[12:05] griff Beeks stares up at the monitor "really fasinating..i must say..."
[12:05] Silkie Dagger: Ah, I thought you were refering to a caste system, sir.
[12:05] Chase Quinnell: Blush, what kind of technology do they have? Do they have any vehicles?
[12:05] Blush Babii: yes Sir
[12:06] Chase Quinnell: Hmm, see if you can't gather some data on their transportation system.
[12:06] Blush Babii: yes Sir
[12:06] michaels Toshi: not detecting much weaponry down there, theyre pretty peaceful
[12:07] Mikael Blessed: No navigational hazards that would stop them from achieving warp drive in a century or so, sir, but no signs or trails on the navigational sensors. Not even navigational satellites, sir.
[12:07] Chase Quinnell: Peaceful? Amazing
[12:07] Silkie Dagger: My guess would be those things that look like bubbles are the vehicles.
[12:07] Chase Quinnell: This planet has already overcome war.
[12:07] Chase Quinnell grins.
[12:07] Chase Quinnell: Bubble-cars.
[12:08] Silkie Dagger: Or hover craft or.. not sure
[12:08] michaels Toshi: maybe we could scan then and see how they work, and how similar they are to our culture
[12:08] michaels Toshi: or how much better rather
[12:09] griff Beeks: i can do that, awaiting command sir..
[12:09] Chase Quinnell: Very Well Michaels
[12:09] Chase Quinnell: Go ahead and scan those vehicles, Cadet.
[12:09] Silkie Dagger: Sir.. do you notice the heavy activity in the southern part of the city?
[12:09] Chase Quinnell: Zoom in on that activaty.
[12:09] Mikael Blessed: Adjusting starboard yaw to optimize scanning position.
[12:09] Chase Quinnell: Ahh... looks like a launch site.
[12:10] Chase Quinnell: They appear to be launching some sort of rocket.
[12:10] michaels Toshi: i'll scan for an energy signature
[12:10] Silkie Dagger: I wonder what for.
[12:10] Chase Quinnell: ::The rocket's engines begin to light up with a green glow::
[12:10] michaels Toshi: we built spacecraft merely for exploration
[12:10] Chase Quinnell: Hmm.. they don't use fossil fuels?
[12:10] Mikael Blessed: Sir, there's a ship, in orbit, sir, around the second moon.
[12:11] griff Beeks: aye sir. *be begins to tap his consol with a series of beeps, walking between the stations and running sever diffent scans* it resembles the technology of 21 century earth sir.. but with their achievement of peace so early theve made a step ahead
[12:11] Chase Quinnell: What type of ship is it Mikael?
[12:11] michaels Toshi: the rocket doesnt seem to use an energy signature that conforms to what we've seen so far
[12:11] Mikael Blessed: I was scanning the "cars" for weaponry when I detected an unknown make of ship.
[12:11] Mikael Blessed: No match in the database, sir.
[12:11] Chase Quinnell: Is that fuel source efficient?
[12:11] Silkie Dagger: Where is the rocket headed?
[12:12] Chase Quinnell: Up it looks like
[12:12] michaels Toshi: hehe
[12:12] Chase Quinnell: I think they plan on sending it out of the atmosphere.
[12:12] Silkie Dagger: We're up. *grins*
[12:12] Chase Quinnell: How many life signs?
[12:12] Silkie Dagger: 2 life signs, Sir
[12:12] Chase Quinnell: I see, it's a manned rocket then.
[12:12] Chase Quinnell: Keep an eye on it.
[12:13] Chase Quinnell: Tactical, what is the status on the ship orbiting that moon?
[12:13] Chase Quinnell: Hostile? Friendly?
[12:13] michaels Toshi: its weaponry is absolutely minimal
[12:13] Chase Quinnell: I see, more explorers perhaps?
[12:13] Chase Quinnell: Hail them.
[12:13] griff Beeks begins tapping his consol to set it to monitor the rocket "aye sir, ve set sensor to monitor and record the rockets progress"
[12:13] Silkie Dagger: Channel open.
[12:14] You: This is Lt Quinnell of the Federation starship Redeemer, we noticed you orbiting that moon.
[12:14] =A= We are monitoring this civilization. They have been working on sending out warp capable rockets. =A=
[12:15] michaels Toshi: so this could be a first contact situation?
[12:15] Chase Quinnell: I see, we were here to check them out as well.
[12:15] Chase Quinnell: Warp capable? Guess we might get to meet them in person.
[12:15] Chase Quinnell: I don't suppose you've made your presence unknown to them?
[12:16] =A= We believe in keeping our distance until they have warp. =A=
[12:16] griff Beeks: wow...first contact...hehe this could be very interesting and eventfull day...
[12:16] Chase Quinnell: As do we.
[12:16] Chase Quinnell: Quinnell out.
[12:16] Chase Quinnell: Status on the rocket?
[12:17] Silkie Dagger: At least they share the same view about first contact as us.
[12:17] Mikael Blessed: No movement, sir.
[12:17] griff Beeks: checking now sir *he resumes his scan*
[12:17] michaels Toshi: looks like theyre checking the rocket before they make any more progress
[12:18] griff Beeks: sir! The rocket has left the atmosphere and is deploying two nacelles ill continue to scan it!
[12:18] Chase Quinnell: Put the rocket on screen.
[12:18] Silkie Dagger: If it's anything like the Earth's old NASA, it could be years before they launch.
[12:18] michaels Toshi: will they be able to see us from there?
[12:18] Chase Quinnell: We're too far away
[12:18] michaels Toshi: i hope so...
[12:18] Mikael Blessed inputs possible course corrections based on rockets trajectory...
[12:18] griff Beeks: aye sir trasnfering to main view screen * he taps his consol and the scan viewer is transfered to the monitor*
[12:18] Chase Quinnell: I doubt their sensors can pick us up, if they have any that is.
[12:19] Chase Quinnell: ::The rocket suddenly goes to warp 1.2::
[12:19] Silkie Dagger: Wow!
[12:19] michaels Toshi: Great Googly Moogly...
[12:19] Chase Quinnell: How fast did it go?
[12:19] michaels Toshi: warp 1.2 and holding
[12:19] griff Beeks: woah..
[12:19] Chase Quinnell smiles.
[12:20] Chase Quinnell: Warp 1.2? Better than the Pheonix's maiden flight
[12:20] michaels Toshi: they seem to have 1 up on the federation
[12:20] Silkie Dagger: Congratulations.. people down there.
[12:20] Chase Quinnell: These people appear to have overcome many obstacles much faster than Earth.
[12:20] griff Beeks gawks... still being a cadet he's never gotten the honor of seeing somthing like this
[12:20] Chase Quinnell: When the rocket returns and lands, I want to initiate first contact.
[12:21] Silkie Dagger: Perhaps the other ship does too.
[12:21] Chase Quinnell: ::The rocket drops out of warp at the edge of the system and turns back::
[12:21] Mikael Blessed: Sir, are we dealing with a one world government? Recommend checking communications traffic to be sure, sir.
[12:21] Chase Quinnell: Very well, Science, monitor the comms network.
[12:22] Blush Babii: Aye Sir
[12:22] michaels Toshi: we should hail the government when they get back
[12:22] Chase Quinnell: And see if you can't find out anything about them that would help in first contact.
[12:22] michaels Toshi searches the database on all first contacts
[12:22] Chase Quinnell nods. "We will hail the government and inform them that we will be coming down to the surface"
[12:22] Silkie Dagger thinks, "Chocolate ...always works for me."
[12:23] michaels Toshi: i admit my people had a knack for not announcing themselves
[12:23] Chase Quinnell: Science, come up with anything?
[12:23] Blush Babii: still searching Sir
[12:23] Chase Quinnell nods.
[12:23] michaels Toshi hands Chase a PADD with info on first contacts
[12:23] Chase Quinnell: Let me know when you've found anything useful.
[12:25] michaels Toshi: the rocket has dropped out of warp
[12:25] michaels Toshi: theyre landing
[12:26] michaels Toshi: they are now disembarking the ship
[12:26] Silkie Dagger continues to watch the action on the screen.
[12:26] Silkie Dagger would like popcorn.
[12:26] Silkie Dagger: I'm sure they will be the heros of the day.
[12:27] Chase Quinnell nods
[12:27] Chase Quinnell: And we will get to initiate first contact with them
[12:27] Silkie Dagger: It's quite an honor.
[12:27] griff Beeks: of the day? theyll probly go down in there cultures history
[12:28] Mikael Blessed: Sir, movement from the visiting ship. 0.0043 impulse, toward the planet surface.
[12:28] Silkie Dagger: Seems someone else wants first contact.
[12:29] Chase Quinnell nods.
[12:29] Mikael Blessed: Elevation angles indicate a landing orientation, sir.
[12:29] michaels Toshi: they want first contact first
[12:29] Chase Quinnell: Guess we can skip the formalities and beam down to the surface.
[12:29] Silkie Dagger: Well, cant blame them, who wants second first contact?
[12:30] Chase Quinnell: Meet me in transporter room 3.
[12:30] griff Beeks nods
[12:30] Silkie Dagger: Aye, Sir.. all of us?
[12:30] griff Beeks puts his station on auto scan and sets his padd to alert him to any problems
[12:30] Chase Quinnell: We will beam down to the beach near the capital city. There is a celebration going on there.
[12:30] michaels Toshi: ooh a beach
[12:30] Mikael Blessed calls for replacement helm officer through com.
On the surface------------
[12:34] Frenaar[Michaels Toshi]: oh my, who in great gods are you!?
[12:34] Chase Quinnell: Explorers.
[12:34] Frenaar: apparently so from your attire
[12:35] Silkie Dagger smiles softly at the male in greeting.
[12:35] Frenaar: i...errrr...wow...
[12:35] Frenaar: aliens
[12:35] griff Beeks looks around at the cilibration going on with a look of amazment then looks back at the man and bows in greeting slighty
[12:35] Chase Quinnell: We are from the United Federation of Planets.
[12:36] Frenaar: welcome to donte prime
[12:36] Chase Quinnell: Your warp vessel was detected on our sensors and we decided to join your celebration down here.
[12:36] Chase Quinnell: Thank you. *smiles*
[12:36] Mikael Blessed scans silently for the alien ship's position...
[12:36] Silkie Dagger: Congratulations on your space flight.
[12:36] Frenaar: it is our greatest achchievement
[12:37] Chase Quinnell: On my planet, Earth, world peace wasn't achieved as quickly as it was here.
[12:37] Silkie Dagger: I'm sure there will be many more, in time.
[12:38] Frenaar: may i ask, how long have you been observing us?
[12:38] Chase Quinnell: We have only been observing for about a day.
[12:38] Chase Quinnell: And we noticed your rocket.
[12:38] Silkie Dagger: An interesting, day.
[12:38] Frenaar: and you collected all that data!?
[12:38] Chase Quinnell: Our Prime Directive prohibits contact with pre-warp civilizations.
[12:39] Frenaar: well you truly are an enlightened culture
[12:39] Chase Quinnell: My name is Chase Quinnell. I am the Commanding officer of the starship that we've monitored you from.
[12:40] Chase Quinnell: Maybe you'd like to... *large explosions rock the ground* What in the hell..
[12:40] Frenaar: oh my!!!
[12:40] Chase Quinnell: Quinnell to the Redeemer, what's going on?
[12:40] Silkie Dagger grabs on to the bars beside her
[12:40] griff Beeks toples over
[12:40] Frenaar falls onto the sand
[12:41] Redeemer: =A= Sir, the aliens have landed and are launching an invasion =A=
[12:41] griff Beeks: w-what the hell was that?...what?!
[12:41] Chase Quinnell: Argh, something about them didn't seem right.
[12:41] Chase Quinnell: Sir, maybe you should stick with us.
[12:41] Silkie Dagger reaches down and offers her hand to cadet griff.
[12:41] Chase Quinnell: Redeemer, beam down some phasers, we may need them.
[12:41] Frenaar: err-of course- of course
[12:42] griff Beeks gets back to his feet with the help of silk "thank.."
[12:42] Mikael Blessed: Sir...
[12:42] Chase Quinnell: =A= Aye sir. =A=
[12:42] Silkie Dagger: This is most unfriendly of that other ship.
[12:42] Mikael Blessed: Sir...
[12:42] Frenaar: hes hurt!
[12:43] Mikael Blessed: I need some help...a piece of shrapnal...in my leg..
[12:43] Frenaar shouts: MEDIC!
[12:43] Chase Quinnell: Blush, you have medical skills, correct?
[12:43] Mikael Blessed: No time,...just get me up...
[12:43] Blush Babii: nope Sir, i ve been brainwashed after transfer
[12:43] Chase Quinnell: No Mikael, you need proper treatment.
[12:43] Chase Quinnell: *another explosion rocks the ground*
[12:43] Chase Quinnell sighs.
[12:43] Mikael Blessed: I can fly, sir,...six limbs, sir...
[12:43] Frenaar falls over injured
[12:44] Mikael Blessed: Safety of our team, first.
[12:44] Silkie Dagger reaches down and slides her arm under Mikael's chest to help him up.
[12:44] Mikael Blessed: I just can't stand...
[12:44] Silkie Dagger: We should see to that as soon as possible.
[12:44] Mikael Blessed: Yes, ma'am.
[12:44] Chase Quinnell: Get these two back to the Redeemer's sickbay. Have Michaels beam down.
[12:45] Silkie Dagger: Aye, sir
[12:45] Chase Quinnell: Sir, you'll need to go up to our ship for treatment.
[12:45] michaels Toshi: =A= sir im coming down with weapons=A=
[12:45] Frenaar: errr.ok ok
[12:45] Silkie Dagger: Sir.. if you'd like to come with me to our sickbay?
[12:45] Chase Quinnell: Quinnell to Redeemer, two to beam up. Beam Michaels down.
[12:45] Silkie Dagger: We can treat you.
[12:46] griff Beeks looks abit nervise, never having been in a real sitchuation like this before
[12:46] Chase Quinnell: *the sound of phaser fire and shouting becomes really loud*
[12:46] Silkie Dagger: I will set him with the doctor in sickbay and return, sir.
[12:46] Chase Quinnell: Hurry, we don't have much time.
[12:47] Chase Quinnell: Alright, lets get these aliens sorted out.
[12:47] Silkie Dagger grabs a phaser.
[12:48] Silkie Dagger: Sir! over there!
[12:49] Silkie Dagger: They are trying to surround us
[12:49] Chase Quinnell: Coming in from both sides!
[12:50] Silkie Dagger watches the other
[12:50] michaels Toshi: Cease your assault on these people
[12:50] Chase Quinnell: You there! Why are you attacking these people.
[12:51] Alien 1[Blush Babii]: that is none of your business
[12:51] Chase Quinnell: It is our business, we must protect these people.
[12:51] Alien 1: we have some err, interest here
[12:51] Chase Quinnell: And killing the population is the solution?
[12:51] Alien 1: do not interfere in our war, otherwise we will consider you enemy
[12:52] Chase Quinnell: Your starship can easily be disabled by our ship.
[12:52] Alien 1: maybe one, but what about hundreds?
[12:52] Chase Quinnell: We have a fleet as well, are you willing to risk it?
[12:53] Chase Quinnell: A war with the Federation will be suicide for you.
[12:53] Alien 1: hm
[12:53] Alien 1 whispers something to Alien 2[Griff Beeks]
[12:53] Chase Quinnell: We have many more ships in this quadrant and in the Alpha Quadrant.
[12:53] Alien 2 listens intently
[12:53] Silkie Dagger keeps an eye on the little blue one.
[12:53] Alien 1: why do you want to protect this planet?
[12:53] Alien 1: we didnt attack you
[12:53] michaels Toshi points his phaser at the blonde alien
[12:54] michaels Toshi: no youre harming an innocent race
[12:54] Chase Quinnell: Because it is our belief that all races are equal and shouldn't be killed simply for some interest in resources. Trade is a simple solution.
[12:54] Alien 1: innocent or not, this is only way for us to survive
[12:54] michaels Toshi: it is not
[12:54] michaels Toshi: alternatives are present
[12:55] Chase Quinnell: Join the Federation, we provide our members with supplies.
[12:55] Alien 1: they have something we need to survive
[12:55] Alien 1: we will risk our lifes to get it
[12:55] michaels Toshi: and what is that?
[12:55] Chase Quinnell: You don't need to survive off of piracy.
[12:55] Mikael Blessed uses his superior position to get a tactical look at the surrounding terrain...just in case.
[12:55] Chase Quinnell: Yes, what is this... thing you need?
[12:55] Alien 1: i need to consult with my superrior officers first
[12:56] michaels Toshi: in the mean time you can all cease fire
[12:56] Alien 1: we will be back, you can count on that
[12:56] Chase Quinnell: But next time, you won't catch us off guard.
[12:56] michaels Toshi: and we wont let our guard down *glares*
[12:56] Alien 2 glares back
[12:57] Alien 1 dissapears
[12:57] Alien 2 dissapears
[12:57] Chase Quinnell sighs.
[12:57] Chase Quinnell: Quinnell to Redeemer, status on the Alien ship?
[12:57] Silkie Dagger: They remind me of the 'schoolyard bully'.
[12:57] michaels Toshi: very much so...
[12:58] Blush Babii: why are they hiding what they need?
[12:58] Redeemer: =A= Sir, many of the aliens have retreated to their vessel and they are now taking off =A=
[12:58] Silkie Dagger: Many?
[12:58] michaels Toshi: maybe we should get back to the redeemer?
[12:58] Chase Quinnell: =A= A few are still roaming around =A=
[12:58] michaels Toshi: holster
[12:59] griff Beeks monitors the redeemers status on his padd
[12:59] Chase Quinnell: Beam the remaining aliens to the ship.
[12:59] Silkie Dagger: I'm afraid of what these 'few' can do down here.
[12:59] Chase Quinnell: 5 to beam up.
On the ship-----------
[13:01] Chase Quinnell: Are the Aliens aboard
[13:01] michaels Toshi: aye sir
[13:01] Chase Quinnell: Take them to the brig.
[13:01] griff Beeks resumes his station
[13:02] Silkie Dagger: Mikael, is your leg better?
[13:02] Chase Quinnell: I'll have Command assign a starship to protect these people.
[13:02] Mikael Blessed: Sorry for the delay, sir. I'm favoring it, but the medical team in teh transporter room did their job.
[13:02] Silkie Dagger: I wish we knew what the others wanted from them.
[13:02] Blush Babii: Sir, an enemy ship is approaching
[13:02] Mikael Blessed: Permission to take my post, sir.
[13:03] Blush Babii: they are hailing us
[13:03] Chase Quinnell u: Onscreen.
[13:03] michaels Toshi: shall we go to red alert sir?
[13:03] Chase Quinnell: Yellow alert, shields up
[13:03] Silkie Dagger: -Onscreen-
[13:03] michaels Toshi: aye sir, yellow alert, shields up
[13:04] Chase Quinnell: This is the Federation starship Redeemer, what is it that you want?
[13:04] -* you took few of our members, we will not tolerate that*-
[13:05] Chase Quinnell: You want them? Take them.
[13:05] Chase Quinnell nods to Silkie.
[13:05] -*teleport them immediately on our ship*-
[13:05] Silkie Dagger cuts them off.
[13:05] Chase Quinnell: Beam their friends to their ship
[13:05] Silkie Dagger: I'm sure we put a scare in them, anyway.
[13:05] michaels Toshi looks dissapointed that he didnt interogate them yet
[13:06] Chase Quinnell: And send a message to them. I want them out of this system now.
[13:06] Silkie Dagger: Aye, sir... sent and sent.
[13:06] Mikael Blessed: Necessary course programming ready for your orders, sir.
[13:08] Chase Quinnell: Frenaar, the government official has recovered and would like us to meet him at the Pride Festival they're holding in honor of their achievments.
[13:08] Chase Quinnell smiles
[13:08] Chase Quinnell: Meet me in transporter room 2
