Departure from Hromi Cluster: December 6th, 2388 Stardate: 65929

After receiving nearly all primary personnel at Driaan Station, the crew of the USS Southern Cross are prepared for their initial shakedown cruise. The Hromi Cluster with still many areas to chart is the perfect nearby candidate for such systems tests, and the possibility to discover something as Starfleet had only catalogued small areas.

However, in an area surrounded by criminal and neutral powers, a simple shakedown cruise may not turn out as expected...

Mission Summary

Outcomes:




An ancient Orion derelict vessel of massive scale was found within the Hromi Cluster emitting a large radiation belt from its failed engine core. Dating of the derelict and the radiation belt itself determined that the vessel was many thousands of years old, dating back to the Twelve Ancient Orion Empire's (197'000 - 37'000 BC).



Within the radiation belt was also discovered a recently damaged Klingon Bird of Prey. Pulling the Klingon vessel away from the radiation belt with its tractor beam, the Southern Cross crew then beamed the vessels sole survivor to their sickbay. The survivor, a Klingon by name of Qen'aq, warned of Klingon betrayal and treachery by the hands of a rogue Klingon faction (the Sovereignty of Kahless) and appeared to have some proof amongst his vessels database.



An away team consisting of Executive Officer Alexander Night, Chief Medical Officer Torrna Maliya, Chief Engineer Rodney Miller and Chief Science Officer Asami Inoue were sent to investigate the derelict. In supplemental was Ensign Ranor from Science and Juliani and Hren from Security.



Within the Orion Derelict the away team discovered that the Ancient Orion Derelict was a massive cruiser built to sustain life as well as destroy it. A large arboretum with many previously thought extinct living tree's and other plants in prestine order was discovered along with cloning facilities and a large missile cache with launch systems. The missile cache appeared to have been mostly used bar a few dozen a very long time ago.



The Cloning Facilities were found to be made to create a self sustaining pre-coded workforce of living drones so to speak. Over thousands of years however, the key genetic code grew corrupt and the Clones grew more erratic and base in their instincts.



Outside in nearby space an Oberth Class Federation Starship, the USS Jubilee, approached the USS Southern Cross' position and began to assist with in-depth scans the Derelicts hull. Soon after, three small Klingon Birds of Prey de-cloaked within weapons range of the USS Southern Cross and demanded in the name of the Sovereignty of Kahless that Qen'aq be handed over to them, immediately. Commander Lashmore denied.



The Klingon Vessels then proceeded to destroy the USS Jubilee with ease and then attempted to attack the USS Southern Cross quickly thereafter. The USS Southern Cross took only light damage to its shields before destroying one of the three small Birds-of-Prey. The remaining two Klingon vessels retreated under cloak.



Within the Derelict, Chief Warrant Officer Rodney Miller revived an Orion female from a stasis pod who then proved to be the commander of the vessel. She soon assisted the crew in their attempts to gain control of the vessel. However the clones were degraded over time in their genetic code were not effectively obeying commands and attempting to capture the away team as a fresh genetic code to harvest and duplicate - a base command in-case of cloning failure from original genetic material.



The Derelict's failing engine and power cores were causing failed systems to attempt to operate once more after automated systems detected the away team, with explosive results, the vessel was beginning to blow itself apart, a compartment at a time.



Against having the need to fight off Degraded Clones, overloading systems, and the Chief Science officers insistence to recover samples of plants and seeds from the arboretum, the away team managed to make its way back to the USS Southern Cross, in an Ancient Orion Shuttle no less.
