    Star Trek Ares - Season 1

    Chapter 2 - Dorvan V

    Primary Locations


    Mission Summary
    Stardate: 58812 (October 24, 2381)
    The USS Ares has arrived in the Dorvan System alongside the border of the United Federation of Planets and the Cardassian Union. Our mission is to provide humanitarian Aide to the planet's inhabitants.

    As representatives of Starfleet Command, we are to meet with the colonists and their leaders and provide them with whatever needs they require in the short term and begin the process of ensuring their longevity. Dorvan V is home to a colony of Native Americans from Earth, setting up a village and habak on the southern continent. The colonists renounced their Federation citizenship and agreed to be governed by the Cardassian government in 2370. They were attacked by Dominion forces during the War when they refused to allow a Jem'Hadar base to be constructed on their planet.

    The planet's features include mountains, lakes, and rivers similar to ancient North America, Earth. Since the attack, crops have not grown to their full potential, due to radiation exposure. Colonists suffer from malnutrition; they are only able to grow the minimum amount of crops necessary to their survival. Nausicaans raid remaining crops, force the colonists to mine ladarium, and torment the colonists for sport. A number of Cardassian officers are currently on the planet and are assisting the colonist's as best they can, but, they have requested Federation assistance in providing for the planet's people and defense.

    There is a long list on our "to do" list. We have to hand out the relief supplies to the colonists. There are Nausicaans who have setup bases on the planet's surface to attack the planet's settlements. There is a large amount of radiation polluting the planet's atmosphere which needs to be cleansed. The medical staff is standing by to provide treatment to everyone affected by the radiation. We also have to construct a number of orbital defense platforms which will be manned by Officers due to be transferred from the USS Lakota around the time we are due to leave the system.

    Before we can do any of this, get past the Nausicaan defenses. Word arrived recently that the Nausicaans have an orbital blockade over the planet. We're going to drive their ships from the system, first, to ensure we can assist Dorvan V unhindered.

    As representatives of the Federation, we are to meet with the colonists and their leaders, earning the proverbial "hearts and minds" by taking 2 weeks to give Federation aid and hospitality, providing security, helping the injured, and reducing radiation levels. We will provide supplies, including portable matter replicators and one industrial replicator for the colony. Our goal is to temporarily help with making the colony self-sufficient as part of the Cardassia Union's Reconstruction.

    USS Ares
    Deck 1 – Bridge


    "We are approaching Dorvan V, sir," the helmsman called over from the nearby station.

    "Very good," Captain Dyrell Teriir responded and turned over to look at the Tactical Station, being controlled by Lieutenant Kenny. With Lieutenant Locke's specialty in Security and his promotion to Captain, it was her duty to perform the ship's Tactical operations. He began giving her instructions, "Begin performing a tactical analysis of the blockade ahead of us. I want to know what we're dealing with before engaging."

    "Yes, sir," she replied as she started entering in commands to her console.

    "Can we contact the Colony yet?" He asked Lieutenant Gytaik.

    (( TAG: Gytaik ))

    Lieutenant Kenny called out to him, "Captain, there are 4 Nausicaan Raiders in the blockade! They're moving to intercept us with shields and weapons ready."

    "Red Alert!" Captain Teriir barked the order. Moments later, the various ship indication lights were blaring red and an alarm rang throughout the ship, "Raise shields and arm weapons. Engineering; Transfer power from the warp engines to the shields and weapons."

    (( TAG: Rosek ))

    "We're being hailed!"

    "Onscreen!" he stood up and walked towards the viewscreen. Looking directly into it, he introduced himself, "This is Captain Dyrell Teriir of the USS Ares."

    The powerful figure of a Nausicaan appeared a moment later, "I am Kuuz, Second Raid Leader. You are trespassing in my Captain's private sanctuary. Run like the cowards you are or die!"

    "I would speak to your Captain immediately," he ignored the demand, "Your ships are violating - "

    "Pah!" the Nausicaan spat, "Your Federation abandoned this system a decade ago. This space belongs to us now. I'm going to enjoy making your fancy ship a trophy!"

    With that, the channel closed. Teriir gave a subtle growl at Kuuz's words. Even with the combined forces of 4 Raiders, the Nausicaans were hopelessly outgunned by the Ares. The fact they had picked on a colony which had little means to defend itself infuriated him. He looked back to the bridge crew, "Helm, close in with the Nausicaan ships. Tactical, prepare to fire all weapons."

    "Sir?" Ensign Aerign nervously asked from her secondary tactical station, "Our ship is technologically superior to the Nausicaans' ships but they are much faster than us at impulse speeds. If they choose to scatter when we engage there won't be much of a chance at catching them."

    His eyes flickered as she brought up these details. She was right. Nausicaans were formidable ground opponents because of their size, strength, and resilience to pain, but they were poor at the construction of starships. Their ships were only kept up so they could overpower freighters; combating a heavily armed Sovereign Class starship was something far out of their league. They couldn't be ignored because of how much harm they could do to other colonies but they also couldn't afford a wild goose chase. He quickly thought up a new battle plan, "Then we'll have to draw them in. Hold fire until I give the order. Prepare to bring us about and reverse course after they open fire."

    "A 180 degree turn and go back the way we came? That'll take us away from the colony we're supposed to be helping!" The helmsman protested.

    Teriir quickly explained his strategy, "It'll also make the Nausicaans believe we are running away; making them chase us and close the distance. Once they close in, we'll engage. Standby for combat!"

    OOC: I'm assuming there's a time jump?
    USS Ares
    Diplomatic complex - Sam's office


    When Sam got into his office after having a bite of breakfast, the alert klaxons sounded.

    - GAH! There's always a red alert!

    He flopped down on the couch, grabbed a PADD and said,

    - Computer, play Sailor Moon, original release with dubbing from 2014. From the start, please.

    The computer beeped and brought up his favorite show.

    Rosek quickly transferred the power from the engine to weapons.

    “DONE SIR”

    He then signaled engineering to prepare the repair teams and brace for impact.

    Teriir quickly explained his strategy, "It'll also make the Nausicaans believe we are running away; making them chase us and close the distance. Once they close in, we'll engage. Standby for combat!"
    "Permission to generate a thoron field through the main deflector when we engage?" Hood called from across his science station to the captain. While anticipating the captain's response, Hood prepared to set his plan into motion through his terminal. "We can use the thoron field to distort their sensor readings, making us harder to hit."

    Deck 1 – Captain's Ready Room


    Previous Day

    “My team developed a successful plan to remove the antimatter radiation, sir,” Hood pitched as he offered his PADD to the captain. “It’s almost identical to what my restoration team did on Cardassia Prime, using the deflector dish to eliminate the radiation in the atmosphere. We only had to adapt it from the warmer and more humid climate of Cardassia to the mixed climate of Dorvan V. The soil and oceans will clear in a few days; the reaction will expand exponentially. We’ll be delivering a catalytic agent, creating an isolytic chain reaction, recombining the nucleonic particles in the planet’s environment.”

    “Which cleanses the radiation from the planet by turning it into the particles necessary to create water molecules," Captain Teriir smiled in approval. His smile turned into a frown a second later, "what's the catch?"

    “The catch, sir, is that Ares will be put at risk,” Hood continued, cautiously. “It creates a feedback pulse of radiation to our deflector when we fire into the troposphere. We have additional shield modification plans to lessen the risk to the ship by reversing the polarity through the plasma coils, then jettisoning the radiation through the nacelles.”

    “Which means we’ll have to evacuate the sections of the ship near the deflector dish to reduce the radiation exposure to the crew,” the captain said, skimming through the PADD, “not to mention the fact this could tear the deflector dish, or the nacelles, from the rest of the ship.”

    “Yes, sir.”

    “Not the first time a deflector array has been modified for something risky,” the captain commented, almost inaudibly. He looked from Hood to the PADD and back again.

    “If this is what it takes to cleanse the planet's radiation, then, by all means: do it.”
