|Things heat up on Raskor as the USS Columbia mobilizes to start tracking Dreva Nan the Angosian augment assassin sent to kill Commodore Kinney and the senior staff of StarBase 118. They intercept and decode a message: Four targets sighted. Took aim at alpha target. Telepathic interference. No kills confirmed. Give me four more hours. This prompts the bridge to inform Captain Taybrim's team that they believe the assassin will try again.
What a lovely backdrop for fist fights and assassinations
Down in the medical center Kinney storms off to the fortified internal command center. Captain Taybrim ensures that Lieutenant Trel'lis sticks with Kinney - both to keep an eye on him and for his own protection. Meanwhile he and Dr. Ezo try to covertly contact Whittaker's team to let them know about the assassin.
In The Cove beachside bar a short round of heated conversation between Commanders Flynn, Whittaker and some irate Starfleet personnel is broken up by Raskor chief of Security Nix. Despite the fact that the team had fists thrown at them without provocation they are the ones taken into custody and held in the security offices.
In the officer's lounge Aitas starts to question Lieutenant JG Vargas, the man who acting very suspiciously while Dr. Phrik tends his injuries in a very brusque manner. It doesn't take long for Vargas to break down into a blubbering wreck and he admits that he was paid to leave his station early and skip one of the routine power maintenance sweeps. He starts to realize that his gullible actions led to a several-minute break in the power to the security fields.
Captain Taybrim, Dr. Ezo, and Ensign Aitas all convene in the security station where Whittaker Flynn and Tatash are released after a brief stint of public shaming. Taybrim informs everyone of the assassin and they piece together Vargas's partially unwitting role in the drama. His oversight allowed Dreva Nan to slip past station security. Tatsh calls in 1st Lieutenant T'Jem for counterstrike duty and has her co-ordinate with Taelon and the Columbia bridge on the location of the Angosian assassin.
With Vargas - the snitch - in the security section as well as the majority of Starfleet targets it is only a matter of time until the assassin Dreva Nan headed that way. Killing the guartds leading into the security area she pauses just long enough to taunt her targets, that's when the Coilumbia strikes back. Lt. Commander Kelly and Ensign Kasun initiate a transport that brings Dreva Nan to the brig, but she immediately retaliates with an em pulse grenade that scrambles the computer systems for a few seconds until the backups can kick in and she initiates a transport back to Raskor. Except Ensign Kasun is also taken in the beamout.
Dreva Nan beams herself into the Officer's lounge with is filled with a dozen innocent bystanders and one quite angry Dr. Phrik. Lt. T'Jem and Lt Commander Kelly mobilize to stun and take down the assassin and everyone launches a multi-pronged attack. Kelly and his team deploy flash-bang grenades to stun the assassin which allows the hostages to flee. Taybrim, Ezo, Aitas and station security Lt. Krasch deploy an aerosol chemical that negatively affects Dreva Nan's illegal augmentation. All of this allows security to subdue Dreva Nan. She is taken into custody and chemically altered to remove her augmentations before being transporter to a maximum security penal colony. Lieutenant Vargas is also taken into custody.
In the command center Lieutenant Trel'lis prompts Kinney to make some incriminating claims, and then she gets some unexpected help from newly arrived Ambassador Kalliana Nicholotti. Nicholotti is briefed on the situation by the USS Columbia and her rank of Fleet Captain gives her authority over Commodore Kinney. Captain Taybrim confront Kinney, and then calls Ambassador Nicholotti down to officially witness the Commodore's resignation.
As the events on Raskor are cleaned up Admiral Vivian Hauke is named the new sector command officer. She exonerates the Starbase 118 crew and commends them on their work. The crew takes an extended shore leave at a private resort on Raskor after they make sure to give Commodore Kinney's extensive and expensive alcohol stash a good home.
Back on Starbase 118 Major Dal, Gazkra, Kro, Sanara Pran and Rozera are on a wild targ hunt that spans the Qo'nos and Ashalla districts. Finally a report comes in from the Bajoran temple that someone has desecrated their fountain with filth and pink fur. The teams converge on the Golden Favor pawn shop where two hapless Ferengi are trying to primp Duchess for auction. The targ is rescued and return to diva lady Shadonna while Major Dal deals with the headache of a very upset Bajoran Prylar who wants their sacred fountain cleaned...
Your resignation has been accepted and is immediately in effect. ~Ambassador Kalliana Nicholotti to Commodore Kinney
