Mission: S03 Ep 02 Trouble in the Sticks (Main Post) Galen IV Phase 1
Location: Galen IV/Oribt
Timeline: S3 Mission 3 MD 10


With all the teams finally, back, the Captain decides to call a quick briefing to plan their final move, she waits a bit so that all the teams can be cleared by medical, she made good use of this time as her First Officer returned to the bridge, she looked over "Welcome back Maia, eventful mission?" she asked.

"Yes, Captain, We delivered the foodstuffs to the bluegills, The food will tag producers of isoboromine. that means we will be able to find and remove any bluegill on the planet from orbit once they have all had there filled. there was several weeks worth of only the best worms grubs and other vermicular forms they are known to eat all alive. Once we are on board we will go to decontamination pursuant to protocols. See you soon. Sterling out."

No sooner had Sterling finished responding than MCPO Armitage sat up straight "Captain, sensors are detecting some shuttles powering up on the surface of Galen IV" the Yeoman said.

"Helm, take us into orbit over the shuttle pad, time to make our presence known RED ALERT, Mr Parker when we take up stationary orbit over the shuttle pad surgical strikes when you disable their ships," the Captain said "Mr Martinson have the remaining of the Raiders fully launch, the CAG will be on the flight deck by now, a replacement pilot will have to take your seat Lieutenant I need you at the helm.

As she gave the order the ship went from Yellow Alert to Red and the ship's lights began pulsating light to dark red and back indicating the new heightened alert status.

Parker’s fingers slid over his console with practised ease, the indicator light flashed ready on the phaser banks and a moment later the torpedoes both fore and aft showed armed and ready. He pulled up a small radar-like a display that allowed him to see the ship and any contacts nearby. “Armed and Ready, Captain,” he said as he began scanning the immediate area around the ship.

"Understood captain", switching the comlink to the fighter bay, "Raiders Squadron launch now, now!" Again the fighters took off within 3 minutes they were airborne. "Fighters away sir, Serina is on her way up to the bridge" Martinson.

The Captain turned around and saw a young Ensign Thompson at the Secondary Science station, she looked at him "Mr Thompson, take over from Chief Armitage at main Science Console if you please!" the Captain said.

"Aye Captain" Thompson replied.

Lucy looked around at a young Ensign in science blue, she had heard the Captain and was grateful "all yours Ensign" she said vacating the station and with a nod heads off the bridge.

"Thanks, Lucy, I relieve you" Thompson addressed the Master Chief.

Thompson quickly ran a scan of the shuttles they were showing all clear." Captain each of those shuttles is clear of Bluegills" Thompson reported.

"That is good news Ensign," Somers said in response.

Then speaking loudly "Make no mistake people, we will try to keep the casualty numbers to a minimum, but we cannot let any shuttles or ships leave Galen IV *looks at Cody* "Mr Parker any shuttles or ships lifting iff target to disable *looks at Martinson* Lieutenant Alert Rebels and Red Squadrons to go onto standby, the bad feeling is back, knowing the Romulan's they probably have a small batch of fighters hidden on the planet somewhere. Also, have a Section of Raiders pick up any dregs we miss same mission parameters shoot to disable" the Captain added.

“I’ll watch for ‘em Captain,” Parker said as he raised the sensitivity on his scanner. He wasn’t eager for the fight but he wasn’t trying to avoid. In this line of work, it was a necessary evil. He cleared his mind and focused with a sharpened vigour in the task at hand.

"Understood captain", he said switching to the fighter comlink, "Red Squadron and Rebel Squadron, ready for standby deployment", Martinson ordered. As before, he was watching his monitor and within 3 minutes the squadrons were up and in standby mode. "Captain, both squadrons ready on standby," he said oO Damn good timing. Those drills paid off. Serina's gonna be proud of them Oo he thought. "Raider squadron, scan shuttles leaving the planet for bluegills, if found disable craft only" he added.

"Captain the shuttles will pass within transporter range of this ship we could try to beam them aboard" Thompson suggested.

"There is no need Ensign, the shuttles are clear, Doctor Cahill will scan the crews for infections," the Captain said,

With the responses acknowledged the Tomcat moves out from it's hiding place and Jasmine knows that the ground sensors can and will have picked up a heavily armed Starfleet ship approaching.

As things were heating up some more of the senior staff arrived on the bridge, the Captain looked over "Lieutenant Walon please take over from Major Donovan on Communications" she instructed. "Lieutenant Serina Donovan I need you to take command of our fighters, now get you to the flight deck and out into space, you too Mr Martinson" she instructed, just as Alex entered the bridge.

"But......but....." John was trying to say something but Serina grabbed him before he could put his foot in his mouth. "Understood Captain," she said, "John.....shutup and come on we got work to do and don't argue!," Serina hissed as they got into the lift and headed for their fighters. It wasn't long before both of them joined their squadron.

Hearing this S'arila turned to face the young Lieutenant and smiled "all yours EL-tee" Donovan said and vacated the station and saw her friend Alex Somers arrive, she knew the Colonel was a shuttle pilot an accomplished one, but with the reassignment of the actual helm officers, S'arila knew what would come next.

Iria looked startled for a moment as she followed the instructions from the Captain, she gave S'arila a wry grin, "Thanks for minding things, Major, and later we really need to get caught up!" She still wasn't used to the EL-tee comment from the Major but she wasn't going to fuss on it right then.

S'arila nodded "when things quieten down methinks El-tee, the station is yours," she said and left the bridge nodding to the Captain as she left the bridge.

Jasmine looks at her cousin "kindly man the helm Colonel if you will please?" Jasmine said and saw surprise for a moment in her Cousin's eyes.

"Not flown such a big ship in a long time, hope I remember how!" Alex exclaimed and took over from Martinson at Helm as she grumbled wishing she never arrived on the bridge.

"What is that old saying Alex, it is like riding a bike..." Jasmine began,

"... You never forget" Alex responded and she adjusted the interface to suit her oO I do hope I do not scratch the ship's hull! Oo Alex thought, to herself as she began to pilot the big ship.

The Captain tapping a surface on her chair arm =/\= Bridge to Engineering =/\=

=/\= Dodd, here, ma'am. What may we do for you here in engineering? =/\= Dodd replied.

=/\= We may be fired upon from a ground-based weapon adjust for possible damages accordingly and make sure we retain power if you please, Mr Dodd, =/\= the Captain said.

=/\= Ma'am, we will be prepared and will have additional power support routed to the shields and emergency repair teams will be on standby. =/\= Dodd responded.

=/\= Thank you, Lieutenant, bridge out =/\= the Captain said.

Suddenly the hairs on the nape of her neck prickle and her Security Chief who was currently at the tactical station shouted an alert.

Parker checked and rechecked the readout, it only took a moment to confirm, “Captain multiple bogeys inbound, approaching from the rear of the ship Captain. They coming up on the aft starboard side.” He stared intently as the information appeared, “Captain they’re Orion, during solution is ready ma’am awaiting your confirmation.” His fingers hovered over both the torpedo and phaser firing button waiting for the green light from his Skipper.

Standing up she looked at Cody "Lieutenant direct Raider and Red Squadrons to intercept, give them cover firing as and when needed" the Captain said.

=/\= Raider Squadron, Red Squadron, proceed aft of the ship starboard side, beginning phaser cover fire =/\= Cody said as he began firing towards the incoming pirates.

With that Alex at the helm spoke: "Captain we have two shuttles leaving the surface of the planet!" Col Somers said.

*grumbles* "Cody get First Lieutenant Tabor to launch Rebel Squadron to intercept those shuttles with the order to disable, then helm turn us to face the Orions and give our squadrons support," the Captain said.

"Yes, Captain" Colonel Somers replied as she began to change the direction of the ship.

oO Damn, this just got interesting! Oo Cody thought, as the Captain gave her orders, he pressed his uplink to the squadron without replying to the Captain.

=/\=Launch Rebel Squadron, Lieutenant Tabor, Escort shuttles departing from the surface=/\= he said crisply.

From below =/\= Tabor here, understood, Rebel Squadron launching, Rebel One out =/\= Tabor replied and marshalled his squadron.

He glanced at the view screen for a moment to see how effective his cover fire was before watching his console once more.

Lamia arrived on the bridge after being cleared by Medical, making her way across to Ops she took over from the junior officer manning her station. “Diverting all unnecessary power to shields and weapons Captain.”

"Thank you, Mia," the Captain said, sometimes she went on ceremony other times there was none like now as she sat back and allowed her crew to do their stuff.

Lamia smiled and nodded. She had to admit it was nice to have her name used instead of her rank.
