Part of Bravo Fleet: We Are the Borg

USS Los Angeles: Shipping Lanes Patrol

There have been reports of Pakled clump ships hunting Federation shipping lanes again. The Los Angeles' mission? To protect Federation space lanes from this pack of Pakleds and to uncover how or if it was possible for the Pakleds to overpower a Borg sphere.

Mission Description

In the past three weeks, two Starfleet Auxiliary supply vessels have been raided by a trio of Pakled clump ships: the Aerie-class SS Montasmery and the Antares-class SS Tomtibl. Their cargo bays full of supplies –due for re-stocking Starbase 227– were stolen by the Pakleds. A further Monarch-class tanker was destroyed when its deuterium tanks ignighted not long after they transmitted a distress signal about clump ships attacking. While the Pakleds’ tactics are outdated, their numbers have more than made up for it. Not only is this trio’s aggression towards the Federation notable, the shattered remains of a Borg sphere clumped onto each of their hulls demonstrates a new level of technological advancement for the Pakleds.

The USS Los Angeles has orders to protect the Constellation-class SS Partheous, a Starfleet Auxiliary supply vessel under attack by the same pack of Pakleds. Starfleet Command has ordered the Los Angeles to protect the crew of the Partheous and to investigate the origins and workings of the Borg sphere these Pakleds have claimed as their own. Starfleet Command has received reports of increased Borg activity from all over the galaxy. The Borg seem especially fixated on reclaiming all of their spare parts that have fallen into the hands of other galactic powers. While these Pakled raiders may believe a Borg sphere makes them strong, it could make them a target of the Borg.

These Aren't the Borg You're Looking For

USS Los Angeles: Shipping Lanes Patrol

The Los Angeles dropped out of warp, loaded for bear. On the bridge, Captain Oteng, brow furrowed in consternation, took in the scene in front of him as he looked out on the viewscreen. The Constellation-class ship was giving as good as her old self could, but it was very clearly losing the fight. [...]

A Scene of Preparedness

USS Los Angeles: Shipping Lanes Patrol

The Los Angeles was almost bristling with energy as it sped towards the last known of the Partheous, contact having been lost about 20 minutes before. On the bridge, everyone was focused on their tasks. “Siobhan, any updates?” During this period, Fabien had dropped all the normal [...]

A "Proportional" Response, Part 2

Continued, from Part 1 Fabien looked at his duffel go-bag, embroidered with the Starfleet Delta and his name, sitting on the bed, sighed,  then looked out the window in his bedroom. Outside, he could see the Echelon-class starship, the Golden Hind, straight abeam of the Los Angeles. His combadge [...]

A "Proportional" Response, Part 1

USS Los Angeles: Shipping Lanes Patrol

Fabien fitfully turned onto his right side, trying to get comfortable enough to actually fall asleep. Sighing, he turned fully over, onto his left side, staying still for a few minutes, then once again breaking the silence in his cabin with an exasperated sigh. “Computer. Lights, 25% [...]
