- Mission De-Brief:
The Ronin has interrupted her leave and left DS17 in a rush, headed to the rescue of a recon fighter flight that may have run afoul of Cardassians. Soon after launch, the engines were disabled by an infestation of energy creatures. An away team was sent, with a squadron of fighters escorting the team's runabout, to investigate. On the way, they were caught by a booby-trapped fighter from the recon flight, allowing a Galor-class cruiser to get the drop on them. The Ronin herself, having solved her engine problems, is still too far away to intervene directly in the situation. The Captain made a not-so-veiled threat to the Cardassian Gul, but another ship, a Keldon, lies between the Ronin and her away team.
