SB118Ops Mission Logs/Sal Taybrim/All Time High
|StarBase 118 Ops|
All Time High...ATH... that abominable abbreviation that seemed to crop up in every meeting he'd attended for the last several weeks. A new drug, predictably appearing out of the blue with not a single shred of history, any other investigation stalling to a halt as the tendrils of the corrupt brought the gears of justice to a shuddering halt
- Street Drugs Complicate Murder Investigation on Neutral World (TILANNA V — The officers of Starbase 118 Operations have uncovered a web of corruption on Tilanna V during a joint investigation with local authorities.)
- With Starfleet Help Tilanna Fights Back Against Corruption and Drug Trade - (TILANNA V – After battling against corruption and terrorism, investors are now turning their eyes once more to the former mining planet.)
Act I: A Suspicious Murder
|Tilanna V. Tilanna is an ex-Andorian colony, that was a haven for Cardassian refugees after the Dominion war. It is a neutral world along the Federation-Klingon Border, plagued by crime and corruption. Anjunaar City Police Department officer Senior Inspector Gilora Jemet fears that her investigation will be hampered by corrupt officers and agrees to Starfleet assistance after speaking to the planetary Governor, Al'Akir. Al'Akir contacts StarBase 118 to petition for help in solving the crime as Malinov is clearly connected to the base.
Commander Sal Taybrim readily agrees to send aid, and his senior staff starts preparations. Tilanna V has strong atmospheric interference that prevents the use of transporters in most areas; and Starfleet presence is not especially welcome. Commander Taybrim orders Lt Commander Theo Whittaker to prepare an undercover, plainclothes away team. Lieutenant JG Antero Flynn heads to impound to select a suitable shuttle to be used for the mission. He selects the MFT Maximum Thrusters, and prepares the shuttle for launch. As the USS Albion is still in repair dock after the beating she took against the USS Stormcrow, the crew readies the USS Aegis for launch.
The Aegis arrives at Tilanna V without incident; however in the time it takes to make the journey to the planet the criminal forces on Tilanna have gleaned information that Al'Akir has called in Starfleet reinforcements. A massive riot breaks out in the capital, focused on the Governor's offices and other major governmental establishments. This includes a well-armed criminal militia fueled by combatants who are drugged up on All Time High. By the time the Aegis arrives, violence on the surface is at its peak. Major Tatash readies the Paladins for deployment and containment duty. They will be followed by the Archangels and a mobile sickbay unit that includes Lt Commander Baylen Anders and Dr. Mirra Ezo. Commander Whittaker's team boards Maximum Thrusters as the marines are deployed and the fight for Tilanna V begins.
Act II: Corruption Lies Deep
Meanwhile as the crew of the USS Aegis work to sift through information and put the pieces together, they are hailed by a Klingon Vor'cha class cruiser and find out that Al'Akir, governor of Tilanna V has petitioned the Klingon Empire for membership. Fortunately the communication between the Aegis and the Klingons is productive - the Federation was not looking to admit Tilanna, and both sides can benefit from sharing information about ATH and the Jenatris Confederation. The Aegis is able to forge an alliance with Ambassador Dempok of the Klingon Empire in the interest of eliminating the Jenatris Confederation (an organization which is looking more and more like the Orion Syndicate...)
On the planet Theo Whittaker's away team is attacked while uncovering the whereabouts of Janker, and the other teams run to his aid...
