Part of Bravo Fleet: Phase 1: Omega

USS Arcturus: Second Impressions

After a successful First Contact, the Arcturus must risk everything to contain an existential threat.

Mission Description

A few days following a successful first contact mission with the Thalruatanians, the Arcturus is in rest and relaxation mode to give her crew some time off from the rigors of such an important task. While Captain Lancaster and Dr. Sheppard were enjoying a day together on the holodeck, the ship was brought to a stop and the unthinkable happened: the Omega Directive was implemented with clear evidence that there was omega present on Thalruatania.

Unlike many other captains, Lancaster is able to consult with Admiral Hayden and Dr. Anjar, the onboard mission commander and a former hospital ship captain respectively, and they hatch a plan: the Arcturus separate and the stardrive would return to the planet while the saucer and the majority of the crew would stay out of range of any additional destabilized omega.

Act III: Complications

USS Arcturus: Second Impressions

The Arcturus had to crawl along at impulse speeds for several hours until it could find a sufficiently stable pocket of subspace to re-engage warp drive. They had enough data to successfully plot a return course, assuming the damage to subspace had already reached its maximum extent. Still, they [...]

Act II: Preparations

USS Arcturus: Second Impressions

The battle bridge’s main viewer flickered with static, barely resolving even a fraction of the visual coming in from Thalruatania. Commander Alesser had been working on clearing it up for several minutes, but communications interference was a sure sign that omega had either disrupted subspace in [...]
