The USS Katana, now under the command of Captain Tau of Bynus has been properly crewed and resupplied for her continuing voyages and service to Starfleet and the Federation. Though no longer 'home' in their natural universe, the crew of the USS Katana are coming to accept the terms of their situation and integrate themselves and their lives into this alternate universe. The starship has been reassigned to Theta Fleet's Task Force __, Task Group C – Siren. It has not taken Captain tau long to make significant changes to his starship's departmental and command structure, removing the marine presence aboard and dissolving the small Intelligence department, integrating it into the Security & Tactical department, naming former Chief Intelligence Officer, Lieutenant Commander Jhu t'Dharvanek as the Katana's new Security Chief and Chief Tactical Officer while retaining her command position as the starship's Second Officer.

With the crew back from their shore leave and leaves of absence, the USS Katana take on the last of returning crew and new crew arrivals. Meanwhile, on the planet Evora, a Federation protectorate world, a geological crisis triggers the world's leader, Regent Cuzar to call for a state of emergency as her planet suffers several tremors of varying severity which has further caused destructive tsunamis. It soon becomes evident that volcanic activity is to blame for the earth quakes, tremors, and tsunamis. Evorans are panicking as they reach out to the Federation to help them. However, the religious and spiritual Evorans that follow the Onlith faith cite ancient texts predicting the collapse of government and the destruction of the world by the cracking of the planet's surface, opening up and swallowing it whole as the skies rain down fire upon fleeing souls.

In 2376, the USS da Vinci came to the Evorans aid, locating an ancient piece of alien technology on the planet which had helped calm the otherwise seismically unstable planet. The Starfleet Corps of Engineers and crew of the da Vinci assisted the Evorans by putting into place the installation of Federation seismic reducers and regulators. The problem should have been take care of. However, with recent seismic activity putting the Evorans in danger and causing a religious and political uproar, Regent Cuzar has been forced to seek the assistance of the Federation once more as the planet of Evora wishes to finalize their entrance and acceptance into the United Federation of Planets.

Captain Tau of Bynus and the USS Katana are ordered to proceed to Evora immediately in hopes to preventing the loss of a society and civilization. En route to Evora, however, the USS Katana receive word that a series of several earthquakes have occurred, killing many and leaving parts of the planet in ruins. Their mission changes slightly with the necessity of humanitarian aide. After arriving in the system, Captain Tau sends down engineering teams and medical aide to assist the Evorans while the USS Katana welcomes aboard Regent Cuzar, opening diplomatic discussions about the future of Evora and its place within the United Federation of Planets. Initially believing the seismic problems on Evora to be natural in origin, the crew of the USS Katana quickly are on elevated alert with suspicion when faint yet abnormal tachyon emissions are detected.

With medical, science, and engineering personnel on the planet spelunking and exploring caves, caverns, and calderas, the crew of USS Katana stay alert and wary. If the planet of Evora is to survive, it will be up to away team personnel to find the answers while the command staff and Chief Diplomatic Officer attempt to quell the unrest of the Evoran people.

Ancient Paths

Post Count: 0

After infiltrating the ancient starbase and downloading their databases, the crew learn that these people are refugees of several destroyed worlds and have been living there for several thousand years. From the databases, a race of plasma energy beings swallowed their planets like a sun and blinked out their ships like candle flames in the wind. The crew also learn of the supposed location of this race from one really old database. They're also on the lookout for the scavenger insect-like race that nearly tore the ship apart.

This is a relatively calm mission with a couple encounters with the Drej that go better than last time and the discovery of an ancient path from a million year old star map.
