Episode 5 - Nightmare on Omega Centauri

Post Count: 21

The end of the Dominion War and Consortium conflict brought with it unprecedented potential, potential for exploration, colonization and so much more. Within months dozens of new Federation colonies rose on previously uninhabited planets. Expansion is however not without threats, as the colonies reach further and further away from New Bajor they become harder to protect. The Scorpio is sent to investigate the mysterious loss of contact with Omega Centauri. A colony of primarily Humans and Trill that started only 3 months earlier. What will the crew find?

Episode 2 - Politics is a Messy Trade

Post Count: 53

The Scorpio took a thorough thrashing from the Isaci and the Prometheus class vessel has been retired in favor of a newly commissioned Excalibur class vessel. For their first mission Scorpio has been tasked with transporting Commodore Scarlet to the Gamma Quadrant. Shortly after going through the wormhole, Scorpio is diverted to deal with a potentially embarrassing problem. There is an ex-Federation officer accused by the Karemma of preying on Karemma shipping in the area. The Karemma are insisting that Starfleet is responsible for bringing Federation citizens into line.
Things are complicated when system ‘glitches’ start popping up with undue regularity in such a way so to conveniently hinder efforts to catch up to and detain the erstwhile pirate. Things come to a head when they eventually do catch up, finding the ship Orion’s Dutchman in the process of assault a group of Karemma ships. However, before Scorpio can intervene, her tactical systems suffer a failure that can only be described as deliberate sabotage. Things take a turn for the bizarre, however, when the Orion’s Dutchman breaks off its attack anyway and calls upon the Scorpio to take note of the cargo aboard the Karemma: weapons. Before he leaves, the pirate claims all ships attacked are carrying military supplies. Scorpio is left to restore her systems and clean up the mess.

Episode 3 - Internal Divisions

Post Count: 64

Following the initial encounter with the Orion's Dutchman the Scorpio has been fully repaired and spent the last several weeks trying to find the pirate without any success. Much to the annoyance of the Karemma. Meanwhile tensions between Starfleet and the Karemma have been increasing as the former has lodged formal complaints with the latter and imposed stronger scrutiny over the weapons transports.

Matters are further complicated when a movement known as the Consortium makes a push against Federation control over Starfleet’s forces in the Gamma Quadrant and hunting down those who do not fall in line. Dealing with an insurrection both inside and outside the ship while the Orion’s Dutchman remains near the crew of the Scorpio must seek to survive and strike back against its enemies.

The defeat of the Consortium was a pyrrhic victory at heart, while all territory was restored to Task Force control the damage done was immense.

Episode 3 - Crossroads

Post Count: 17

Following the new mandate the Scorpio sets course for Deep Space 7 to do some quick resupplying before heading off into the expanse through the more dangerous Ferengi/Tzenkethi corridor. Despite following the general safe passage through the corridor gravitic storms still hit and slightly damage some systems of the Scorpio. Upon managing to push through the corridor they encounter a warp-capable ship from one of the native races offering to help the ship with repairs.

As interactions continue it becomes obvious despite their general open and friendly attitude they are hiding something. With various parts of their ship shielded from even the most advanced scanners the Scorpio has and a rather xenophobic perspective on other races it is finally revealed that the ship functions primarily on slave labour from other species on their own homeworld and other worlds throughout the expanse.
