Captain's log, stardate 110504.1424. The Talisman has been ordered to proceed to a location of 127.6 LY's rimward of Pinastri IV where we lost contact with one of our science outposts. The outpost had just made contact with an unknown entity that was described as "impossibly masive" and gave a power reading of "epic proportions". Our task is to investigate and determine why Starfleet lost contact with the station. This could entail intercepting the entity as well, in which case we could be looking at a first contact situation. We are proceeding at maximum warp as six lives are now hanging in the balance. Hopefully everything is fine and it is merely a communications hiccup in the system.

The USS Talisman was investigating a communications disruption of a science outpost on stardate 110508. The Talisman arriaved at the provided coordinates given by Starfleet Command to find a massive alien vessel, believed to be a creature at the time. As the Talisman slowly approach the vessel attempting to make contact, the ship was grabbede by a type of a tractor beam and pulled inside. Once inside, sensor sweeps indicated that the internal construction more resembled a vessel then a creature, yet had the organic properties of a lifeform. It was also discovered that the atmosphere of the ship was capable of sustaining humanoid life without the need of a protective suit. An away team was sent to investigate and find out exactly what the ship was up against.
While on the alien vessel, the away team encountered construction and engineering concepts never before seen or recorded. Everything about it appeard to be of an organic nature. It wasn't long until the away team made contact with some of the inhabitants of the vessel. The alien's unprovokingly attacked the away team, firing what appeard to be a type of stun weapon at them. They additionally emitted some type of a purpleish gas from what was presumed to be their facial construction. The away team was immediatley extracted with the exception of the ship's first officer, Lt. Commander Brandi Meredith, whose signal was lost just before transport. Before the away team beamed out, the alien lifeforms identified themselves as the Relknok's, an alien force encountered several years ago by the orignal USS Aviator. The aliens had evolved and returned to our space on a campaign of conquest. The Talisman was now entrapped in the massive vessel with no immediate means of escape.
