During a mission to search for Iconian remains on the planet Centuria, Cmdr Genny7 Markus disappeared. The rest of the Away Team located a hidden Iconian Gateway, and has theorized that the Commander inadvertently triggered the gateway when stepping through it while holding an Iconian artefact known to emit energy pulses. Despite their best efforts, the Team was unable to activate the Gateway. An ancient temple with a model of a 13 planet binary system had also been investigated. Images of this model were sent to Astrometrics in the hope that the system could be found somewhere in the nearby sectors.
Before leaving the planet, the Away Team returned to the Centurian settlement. They needed to go back to the Central Control Room and remove the virus from the robot's main computer, thereby restoring the communications and the protective dampening field of the inhabitants. The Team then beamed up to the ship. Astrometrics had managed to establish the co-ordinates of the system. The USS Neil Armstrong then set course for the thirteen planets, where the crew hope to locate LT Isis Gaelyth and Cmdr Genny Markus.

Log Entry: Commander David7 Bravin, 140511:
We continued heading for the 13 planet binary star system at warp 4.
I received a disturbing report from Tactical, that we were being pursued by another ship. I ordered Helm to reduce our speed to warp 1, which resulted in the pursuing ship being able to gain on our position. Curious to discover who was following us, I ordered Helm to take us out of warp. On the recommendation of Tactical, I ordered that we go to Yellow Alert and raise our shields. We then received a hail from a Captain Romana Aureus of the starship Libra. She informed us that we had become enemies of the Empire when we fired upon one of their warships in the "restricted area". She went on to explain that the Empire had been restricting everyone's movements in the sector and that an Alliance had been formed to stand up against Empire in this respect. Noting that we had a powerful ship, she offered us friendship and invited us to join the Alliance. I thanked her for the offer, adding that we could perhaps discuss it at a later date, as we were currently on an urgent mission. We then continued on our way.
When we reached the binary star system we had identified, I asked Science to scan each of the 13 planets there. We all waited with baited breath as the results of the scans were being reported. After initial disappointments, we were rewarded with the announcement that the innermost planet, which was the last to be scanned, was Class M - Terrestrial. I suggested that the innermost planet was therefore the most likely one on which we might find Cmdr Markus and LT Gaelyth, so I ordered Helm to take into orbit around that planet.
In preparing for an Away Team to beam down to the planet, I was informed by Engineering that for some reason they were unable to get a stable lock for the transporters. As such I ordered the Away Team to report to the Shuttle Bay, where we boarded a shuttle and set off for the planet.
