LOCATION Srips System, Kelterre

MISSION Stellar Survey

OUTCOME Survey interrupted by an attack by an unknown ship. U.S.S. Endeavour initiated a tactical withdrawal from the system.


  • CAPT A. Mirazuni
  • CAPT A. Nimitz
  • LT(JG) R. Mitsuki

NARRATIVE Whilst surveying the Srips System, the U.S.S. Endeavour detected an unknown ship deep within the radiation belt of the star in the system. The U.S.S. Endeavour was unable to enter this belt due to the high pressure, temperature, and radiation emitted from the star, and scans could not sufficiently reveal the identity of the ship. Hails to the ship did not go through. It was at this point when the U.S.S. Endeavour was scanned by the unknown vessel, which began to move towards the U.S.S. Endeavour at high speeds.

Following General Order 12, the ship moved to Yellow Alert. A combination of a tractor pulse and the U.S.S. Endeavour’s own thrusters used to try to stop the unknown vessel from colliding with the U.S.S. Endeavour, as the vessel did not respond to any hails. The vessel then began to open fire on the U.S.S. Endeavour, quickly removing our shields and leaving the ship exposed. Given the vast unknowns of the situation, this officer commanded an emergency withdrawal, which was executed at high warp.

Following brief repairs, the U.S.S. Endeavour returned to the system, but the unknown vessel had left the system itself this point, leaving no trail to be followed. The U.S.S. Endeavour then continued her survey of the system.

RECOMMENDATION Tactical analysis conducted by Captain Nimitz during the mission revealed the following; the ship was using an unknown weapon system and had a hull composition of minerals that were not common on vessels from this quadrant. The ship was not immediately hostile, and it is to be noted that the vessel only fired after we had used our tractor beam to repulse the vessel from a collision. It has been hypothesised that our communications systems were not compatible with the unknown vessel.

Following this, scans will be analysed by our Engineering and Tactical departments. Our Operations department will attempt to see if we are able to modify our communications to speak to the vessel, should we encounter them again.

Furthermore, it is to be stated that various members of the crew who had telepathic abilities, such as this officer and the second officer (though she was not on duty at this time), experienced great telepathic pain. Whether this was from the system, or from the vessel, is yet to be determined.

It is also this officer’s request that all personnel reminded of uniform protocol when serving, even on a temporary basis, on Starfleet installations and vessels.

RECOGNITION Captain Nimitz, whilst seemingly unable to read instructions given to him upon arrival and then act upon given instructions, performed well as a temporary Executive Officer for the duration of his time on the bridge during this mission. It is common for other Commanding Officers to “forget” that they are not in command; Captain Nimitz did not and performed well in a subordinate role.

Lieutenant Mitsuki has adapted well to the increased responsibilities placed on her by her promotion. Her pre-shift planning was excellent and allowed for a more effective tactical response by helm when danger arose. Her speed and safety in executing emergency warp procedures were a large contributor to the survival of all personnel onboard the U.S.S. Endeavour.

OOC This is the AAR for the Endeavour event Colour of Your Thoughts. Event logs available on request. Special thank you to Nimitz who volunteered to get yelled at by Ayesha because he didn’t wear uniform.
