Phoenix: Learn to Fly

Phoenix is drawn into a game of cat-and-mouse with a Romulan ship in an asteroid belt, and must scramble so their first contact with the enemy is not their last.

Mission Description

‘Run and tell all of the angels

– ‘Learn to Fly,’ Foo Fighters

 

The Phoenix scrambles to respond to a Romulan attack at the Vega colony – only to be waylaid by a bird-of-prey in an asteroid belt, and pulled into a game of cat-and-mouse in the name of survival. As the clock ticks down, it will take every ounce of the Phoenix’s supposed off-kilter brilliance to get to Vega in time.

‘Don’t listen to that blowhard West,’ said Hawthorne, following Takahashi down the shuttlebay stairs. ‘He has a thorough lack of imagination and an incapability of extrapolating beyond what he can see.’ Antar leaned against the shuttlepod hatch, and looked up at the engineer’s approach. [...]

No Idea is Too Stupid

‘If we’re not out of here in two hours,’ Lopez told the staff gathered around the briefing table, ‘then Vega gets hit with nobody to protect them. The Decius has better sensors than us, and will spot us before we spot them if we leave this dust cloud. Where are we at with our [...]
