Part of Bravo Fleet: Blood Dilithium

USS Endeavour: All the Devils Are Here

In the distant Delta Quadrant, which challenge will prove more formidable? The new enemies of the Gradin Belt, or the torments blood dilithium unleashes on Endeavour's own?

Mission Description

Not a soul
But felt a fever of the mad, and played

Some tricks of desperation. All but mariners
Plunged in the foaming brine and quit the vessel,
Then all afire with me. The King’s son, Ferdinand,
With hair up-staring—then like reeds, not hair—
Was the first man that leaped; cried “Hell is empty,
And all the devils are here.”

– ‘The Tempest,’ Act 1, Scene 2, William Shakespeare


The Blood Dilithium Crisis unfolds across the Gradin Belt, its manifestations turning political stability into chaos as its effects on telepaths leave swathes of the populace tormented. Into this upheaval Endeavour is sent, with old allies returning to help them face whatever challenges they find on the far side of the galaxy.

The crew is shaken when they come across a derelict freighter with blood dilithium aboard, its Brenari crew reduced to savagery and violence at their cargo’s invasive whispers and influence. But worse is an ensuing confrontation with a warship of the xenophobic Devore Imperium, who seek to expand their borders and continue their cleansing of any and all telepaths. Endeavour can stop one ship, but not a whole fleet, and not a whole navy – especially not when they learn the Devore seek an ancient device dating back to the days of the fallen Vaadwaur Supremacy, a psionic resonator once used to suppress Brenari slaves. What was once a tool of control in the hands of the Vaadwaur could be, in the hands of blood dilithium-possessing Devore, a tool of genocide.

To find this lost device before the Devore, Captain Rourke and his crew must embark on a hunt stretching across the vast reaches and dangers of the Gradin Belt – and not, themselves, succumb to the chaos of blood dilithium.

USS Endeavour: All the Devils Are Here

‘I’m just glad we could help, Governor.’ It wasn’t false modesty that drove Rourke’s words, but a far more human exhaustion. Validating though it was to hear the leader of a planet gush with gratitude for how Endeavour’s crew had saved them from annihilation, he wanted, more than [...]

USS Endeavour: All the Devils Are Here

The screams were like she always heard them – terrified as much as agonised, the yells and whimpers of those who died but also those who were trapped watching. She was another step away, the helpless watching the helpless, caught in the winds just beyond the eye of the storm of pain and [...]

USS Endeavour: All the Devils Are Here

‘I understand, Governor. You do right.’ Rourke set his lips as he gave a stern nod to the haggard-faced leader of the Brenari colony of Senolok. ‘We don’t want to make evacuation ships a target. The enemy aren’t far now.’ The steel-haired woman looked like not much rattled her, but she [...]

USS Endeavour: All the Devils Are Here

Stars streaked beyond the ready room window as Endeavour hurtled through the dark. Deep in the engine room, Cortez stoked the engines hotter and hotter, the crew not for the first time locked in a race against time to save lives. Except on this occasion, time was not Rourke’s biggest concern. The [...]
