Life has been hectic for people newly stationed to the USS Victory. With the sudden transfers to the newly re-commissioned USS Victory, the crew has had little time to get acquainted before being sent to the tempest sector on an urgent mission. What made this even more interesting was that the sector was galactic south of the enigmatic Tholian Holdfast.
With a top secret mission to investigate a planet whose coordinates were given from an ancient alien data cube on Duronis II, it is believed that it could be the key to understand an alien menace that has only been hinted at in the information extracted from the cube.
Upon arrival to the planet of Paksos II, they find a long dead civilization, ancient stations in orbit and to make matters far more volatile, a Tholian patrol corvette that arrived to threaten the USS Victory if it does not leave immediately. Only time will tell how this new crew will escape the perils of this mission.
The USS Victory NCC-362447 had been in orbit around G-2210-C, known by the local region as Paksos, for a few hours and their investigation in to the Hunger had already hit snags. With two away teams out, one on the surface of the jungle world lead by Lieutenant Commander Eerie and the other on the orbital station led by Commander Alucard Vess, they both faced a crisis.
NPC STATUS VESSEL
Commander Eerie's team had been unknowingly infected with a virus that has caused varied, but extremely painful symptoms among the team. Commander Vess' group discovered that the orbital station was semi-sentient and did not appreciate them being there. The Victory herself had been caught in a gravimetric field that was going to shred them apart if they could not escape and had a Tholian squadron enroute to their position. The situation looked hopeless.
That did not stop the crew of the Victory. Discovering that quantum torpedoes could temporarily disrupt the energy field entrapping their ship, the bridge crew was able to implement a plan that allowed them to beam their crew to safety and also disrupt the field and escape. For the first time on the mission, something went according to plan and the Victory was able to get away.
Now on course for Starbase 118 to rest and recuperate, there is an ominous feeling that though they learned a bit about their ancient enemy, there was more to be found in the tempest sector.
