Regional Operations Briefing (July 2021)

38th Command invites you to participate in a discussion of current issues, events, and missions in the 38th’s area of operations. Tea and biscuits will be served.

Shift Time: Gamma. See Shift Schedule and Weekly Meetups for details.

Audience: OPEN

Event Type: Structured

Starting Point: Research Lab Conference Room

Exact details, including time and date, are subject to change, depending on the availability of fleet staff.

This event will count towards one of the initiate tasks needed to complete the initiation.

After thinking about how this could be done better from last time, I have come up with the following idea. The below agenda lists discussion time for each squadron (this is a wiki post so you can edit directly). Squadron members who will be attending are free to list anything that they have been doing (either through official events or just made up), but these MUST be in the form of a full briefing so that anyone who reads them will know enough to discuss those points in the meeting itself. I may remove some discussion points if the list gets too long and these will be a priority for the next meeting.

This may be confusing to some, so please do let me know if you have any questions. As always, I’ll be looking for comments and suggestions about how best to run this, so don’t be afraid to let me know what you think.

United Planetary Federation

NAME & POSTING: CAPT Mirazuni Ayesha, U.S.S. Endeavour.
BRIEFING: Reports state that there is an established faction in the Alpha 7190 Sector called the “United Planetary Federation”. Exact intelligence about the UPF are slim, but we do understand that they are a group of different species all working together in some sort of alliance. The UPF are openly antagonistic to Starfleet, though they are not hostile and have been known to accept assistance from Starfleet when required. Continous forays into the Alpha 7190 sector will lead to contact with the group and without proper diplomatic oversight, a conflict is very likely.
RECOMMENDED ACTIONS: Establish diplomatic contact with the UPF, formalise recognition of the power, and set boundaries of exploration and contact. Gather intelligence about the power and attempt to find out why their views of Starfleet are negative.
