Act I: A Menace Returns
Kinney's orders are firm, placing Captain Taybrim and the USS Albion firmly under the direction of Captain L'Trena and the USS Avalon. Taybrim privately expresses deep concern as to this set up, believing Captain L'Trena to be inexperienced in ship combat and an unwise choice to face a Romulan Warbird, especially since both the Albion and the Avalon lack the firepower to win a straight up fight with the Sienov.
Captain Taybrim quickly mobilizes the USS Albion and they enact an expedited launch with full battle preparations. Teams across the ship prepare for battle, while Lieutenant Taelon, Major Tatash and Lieutenant Beyett start preparing some creative solutions to deal with the Sienov to compensate for the lacking Armaments on both the Albion and the Avalon. Major Tatash proposes that everyone be aware that they need to use lethal force to take Arrhimen down, something Captain Taybrim agrees with; but which causes pain to Doctor Ezo and Counselor Zinna.
Before they can rendezvous with the USS Avalon, Captain Taybrim takes a coded message from Councillor Dempok of the Klingon Empire. Dempok has his Vor'Cha class cruiser the IKS S’Tarahk cloaked and on standby to engage the Sienov. The two share information and strike an alliance to fight the Sienov together.
As the Albion nears the rendezvous point with the Avalon, they hail Captain L'Trena who tells the Albion that he intends to break cover and send some fighters to investigate a disturbance. Captain Taybrim implores L'Trena to not break cover and wait for them to arrive, but Captain L'Trena brushes him off and closes the commline. The Albion speeds towards the rendezvous with an increasing sense of dread.
