Phoenix: Bad Moon Rising

The discovery of a Romulan supply depot near Vega gives the Phoenix an opportunity to destroy their enemy's foothold in the region - but are they biting off more than they can chew?

Mission Description

‘Hope you got your things together
Hope you are quite prepared to die
Looks like we’re in for nasty weather
One eye is taken for an eye’

– ‘Bad Moon Rising,’ Creedence Clearwater Revival

After almost six months and a slew of Starfleet reinforcements, the Vega system has been secured against Romulan incursion. Scout ships are hunted and destroyed, major offenses blocked and routed. Phoenix has led the way against all odds and expectations, finding the Romulan Empire trying to flank the United Earth Commonwealth and plugging a gap nobody saw coming. The rescue of an Andorian mercenary from Romulan attack seems routine, a demonstration of Starfleet supremacy in the region. But when he tells Captain Lopez of a nearby hidden Romulan base, the source of all supplies for local enemy operations, it seems an even greater opportunity has fallen into the Phoenix’s lap.

Starfleet colleagues want Lopez to investigate now, and stage a safe attack later. But the Phoenix has seen off all naysayers so far, and finishing off the Romulans in the Vega theatre for good would be a hell of a feather in the cap of the ship everyone expected to fail…

Phoenix: Bad Moon Rising

It was early morning, and he was warm in his bed, comfortable in that state of semi-consciousness, all the world a cocoon of darkness and thought. Soon he would have to act, but for the moment he could rest, stay cosy, reflect, even if the alarm was about to go off. Then it went off, and Hawthorne [...]

‘This better work,’ Lopez heard West mumble as she passed his station on her way to the command chair four hours later. ‘It’ll work,’ said keen-eared Takahashi, with all the confidence she knew he couldn’t be feeling. ‘Tharan wouldn’t have agreed otherwise,’ chipped in Black from [...]

‘Tak!’ The office for Communications wasn’t very big, because neither was the department. But Takahashi had hoped he could come in here to get away from the others, and now he realised all he’d done was create a space where he could be cornered as Black burst in. ‘Come on, in, Helena. Sit [...]
