NARRATIVE The away team posed as mercenaries and unwilling captive. The initial infiltration went smoothly, with the team finding themselves before the Orion Syndicate leader of the station, Durnan to negotiate the sale of LT Drush (myself). However, during negotiations LT Drush went over the top in acting out fear, leading Durnan to anger about damage to his ‘pet’. CMDR Akaela pretended to have a gel explosive planted on LT Drush, a claim that made Durnan even more enraged. During the ensuing conversation, Durnan ordered his guards to take the females (LT CMDR zh’Vhenda and CMDR Akaela) and kill the male (LT CMDR Flynn), though no one fired yet as the team made offers, counter offers, and comments. During this time, LT CMDR zh’Vhenda signaled the Midway. The Midway exited warp as shields on the station were raised and the Midway began its attack. During the attack, a light fixture fell and impaled Durnan and two guards, with the rest of his guards being killed by the team. Three slaves were rescued from this room as well.
Further investigation involving LT Drush and LT CMDR zh’Vhenda into logs recorded by Durnan revealed the reason the Syndicate had pursued LT Drush. LT Drush before being freed to Starfleet space was being prepared to become a net girl so that various clients could experience the sensual Orion slave girl. However, her subsequent freedom squashed those plans. Only after she joined Starfleet and was assigned to the USS Midway did interest in her return. Durnan, her original owner, had ambitions to climb the ranks of the Syndicate, and to do so he needed an advantage over others in the Syndicate. He decided to pursue LT Drush to obtain her and implant the Net girl implant to obtain the operating practice of Starfleet frontline combat vessels. This plan would, in theory, allow him to more effectively evade and combat Starfleet operations and thus enrich himself and his standing in the Syndicate. The black market surgeon for this plan was sent a message about this but had not arrived at the station yet and remains in Syndicate space. It is unclear at this time whether others in the syndicate beyond the surgeon know and/or would be interested in pursuing LT Drush.
RECOMMENDATION No action necessary at this time.
- LT CMDR Flynn ensured the craft used during infiltration was properly prepared to support life. His fixes to the life support system ensured the mission did not end in the vacuum of space.
- CMDR Akaela and LT CMDR zh’Vhenda both improvised during the escalation of the situation to buy time as LT CMDR zh’Vhenda signaled for support from the Midway
