The Hunt For The Hulk
What begins as a relatively simple and straightforward survey mission of a previously un-mapped section of the Alpha Isles, the crew of the Arrow are stunned to find something in the remote region of space that definitely shouldn't be there...
Starfleet tasks the USS Arrow with a simple mapping mission of a relatively sparse and unexplored area of the Alpha Isles. Most maps of the region are inaccurate and incomplete, so the ship prepares for a very long and somewhat tedious journey. As the journey progresses, long range sensors pick up something strange. Sensor scans are being refracted for some unknown reason, and all the astrometric data so far suggests that a remote area should be home to a star. However closer scans do not indicate a star at all. So what is causing the readings and what is refracting the scans? Gravimetric distortions bring the Arrow to impulse and the crew try to determine what indeed is out there. When the ship drops out of warp, Captain Shayne notices that something is blocking out the stars from further afield. A moon? A black hole? Something... Meanwhile, an opportunistic Ferengi Second Officer leads a small shuttle team to an ancient ship lost in space. He smells profit on the stale air and orders his men to search for it once they're in the cargo hold. Strange moss and plants have been growing on the deck and bulkheads - evidence that people haven't been there for many years. Suddenly, a loud and ungodly roar disrupts the scavengers search, and it becomes clear something terrible lies waiting on the ancient vessel...
The Arrow initiates a magneton beam to clear away some of the ionizing radiation, which clears up the sector of space they're in and reveals the presence of 'the space hulk'; a massive pyramidal ship the size of a starbase. It's estimated that it's a couple of hundred years old and has been stationery for about a decade. It seems to be made of some kind of stone, but a metallurgical analysis proves it's actually some kind of stone/metal composite.
Stalking the hulk is a Ferengi marauder - the FMS Fortuna - which takes a defensive stance against the Starfleet ship. Communications between Captain Shayne and DaiMon Slek reveal he is invested in the hulk and has sent two teams to evaluate and catalogue its contents for sale. Lt.Commander Maz Rodan forms an Away Team of Lt.Commander Serinus, Lieutenants Waters and R'Ariel, and Lieutenant JG Caden to investigate the ruined ship to determine whether it is derelict, and whether DaiMon Slek has a legal claim to it...
The Away Team arrives on the hulk, and encounters the strange ecosystem the ancient ship has created. There are bugs and other strange creatures living peacefully in the grass and moss covering the ship. The ship itself is found to be running on low/emergency power and Lieutenant Caden tries to restore power so they can explore further. On the Arrow bridge, Commander MacKenna attempts to covertly scan the Fortuna while simultaneously up-linking specific information from Starfleet Intelligence.
