If This Goes On... (USS Eagle)
The Crew of the Eagle heads toward the Dialran, the home of a large Ring-like structure with the surface area of 3 Million M-Class planets.
- Adovan-4: The leader of the village Protectorate Village 172
- Scale-9: The resident Medicine Man of the aforementioned Protectorate Village 172
- Captain Uchee Orjea: The Captain of the Acen vessel who attacked the Eagle after it deposited an Away Team in the vicinity of Protectorate Village 172
Acting on information from a Mithgiln report the crew of the Eagle is heading toward the Dialran system where are there are reports of a Nivian Ring - a ring 1 AU in radius around a G-Type star. The first data provided by probes has revealed that the structure is at least 1.25 million years old. The interior is made up of separate independent biospheres, each containing a different climate, weather patterns, and perfect spacing between one another. Each of these biomes is also equipped with its own propulsion circuit which keeps it all in sync with the rest of the interior.
Power for this vast installation seems to be coming from some kind of geosynchronous energy drawn from the star. One of the sections is breaking down which could lead to the entire Ring falling into the star.
After the initial scans have revealed an artificial environment and an old nacelle inside the rings. To investigate the village and nacelle first hand the Eagle's CO has dispatched two away teams under the command of Lt.Cmdr. Shayne.
Claiming to be visitors from a different village contact has been made by Lt. Cmdr. Shayne. Meanwhile, the away team under the command of Lt.Cmdr Kenna is exploring the Nacelle that is converted into some sort of temple by the locals.
Meanwhile, the USS Eagle has made contact with an Acen ship under the command of Captain Uchee Orjea. Captain Orjea has given the Eagle an impossible deadline to leave, which Captain Oddas has declined to follow. Captain Orjea has responded by opening fire on the Eagle.
The Eagle, under fire from the Acen ship's tetryon canon and the Ring's defensive systems, finds itself losing power and struggling to maintain weapons, shields, and life support. The crew manages to back away from the Ring, fire on the Acen vessel to disable its cannon and to deploy a type of a low-technology aluminum net in order to shield itself from ongoing energy drain. Captain Oddas forces the opening of negotiations by beaming Captain Orjea into her Ready Room.
On the Ring surface, the Away Team, Commander MacKenna has discovered the remains of a Starfleet vessel, which the natives refer to as a temple.
