Kam’Jahtae (Andaris Task Force)
|Season 1, Episode 3|
|ATF Mission History
The Blackwell finally arrives at the Caraadian planet Arndall of the House Tadere. What they found was a Valcarian blockade of the planet, staring down a fleet of Caraadian vessesl in a defensive line. On the planet, battalions of Valcarian soldiers lay brutal siege to most, if not all, Caraadian civilian centers, however, they only used artillary and held their positions. An odd battle plan to be sure.
The Blackwell sent two Arrow-class runabouts down laden with supplies to allieviate the suffering of the civilian population of the planet with strict orders to remain neutral in the ongoing conflict. Lieutenants Krindo Pandorn and Sanara Pran, Doctor Kol'Vat, and Lt. Commander Cayden Adyr were sent to the captial city of Syrandio to help the Carradian population, while Lieutenant Jarred Thoran, Doctor G’Renn, Ensigns Avarin and Ensign Ferentis were sent to main Valcarian settlement of Navatria to render aid there, all in the interest of looking neutral.
A meeting between the Valcarian Commander General Asil and Her Excellency, High Prefect Albretta Glovely, Governor of Arndall, recipient of the Clarity Sigil and member in good standing of House Tadere convened aboard the Blackwell in the hopes of ending the siege before more civilians meet with suffering. Commander Whittaker, Fleet Captain and Ambassador Nicholotti and her security guard Ensign Dakora have their work cuttou for them.
On the planet, chaos reigned supreme at Syrandio, as the Valcarians bombarded the civilian buildings, being careful not to strike fleeing civilians with some degree of success. Again, an odd strategy in battle, as the Valcarians usually show little compassion for 'lesser' races. However, there was many victims of collateral damage to which it kept Lt. Commander Adyr's team busy. One was a woman pulled from the rubble of a collapsed building, muttering something as she slipped into and out of consciousness due to severe head trauma. As the team treaded her, the very ground rumbled beneath them and a deep humming sound was heard throughout the area. What was happening underground? Not even the sensors aboard the Blackwell could penetrate the surface accurately. It was surmised that it isn't a natural occurance.
In Navatria, Lieutenant Thoran and company set up an aid station in a abandoned building near their landing zone. There they encountered an injured squad of Valcarian soldiers, who uncharacteristically allowed them to tend to them. One requires surgery, causing a dilemma of performing it in the building or attempting to get to their runabout or the Blackwell.
And there still is the riddle of the mysterious seismic activity under their feet, underground. What is the answer? What is the planet Arndall hiding?
