The redeployment of military forces to Tri’Vokil has, unfortunately, left many frontier worlds vulnerable to threats from within. RRF Command relayed to the Tebok this morning about a criminal cartel seizing control of New Raltok, an isolated Republic colony.

The RRW Tebok is en route to deal with these upstarts and restore order. It will also be the first mission the crew of the Tebok is truly put through its paces.

Commander’s Star Log, Supplemental

The eccentric leader of this criminal cartel holding the colony hostage, apparently, is confident whatever he possesses is enough to defeat the RRF. Commander Salil, Lieutenant Shea, and myself are preparing to prove otherwise. Further, I am rather keen on knowing about the strange energy reading identified by Lieutenant Shea. I have a sordid feeling about it.

The recent internment of a Romulan merchant vessel by Breen forces is causing a significant stir in the Senate. Many are calling for the Military to take direct, decisive action.

The RRW Tebok is being deployed near Breen territory to remedy the situation. Something feels… off about the whole situation, though. I will be informing my staff to keep careful eyes on the situation. I do not like how much pressure the Senate is placing on the RRF. Further, I am puzzled as to why the Breen would suddenly feel the need to intern a merchant vessel.

I suppose we will find out soon enough.

We have arrived in the Ka’shir system, a planet with a toxic atmosphere poisonous to most forms of animal-life. Its populace lives on a large facility in orbit of the world. Curiously, the planet does not seem to harm plant or fungal life. RRF Command sent us here after a supply freighter disappeared.

I opened contact with the vice-governor of the colony. He is a serious man. And as such, I made certain not to waste his valuable time. He was forthcoming with all of my questions. While he is perhaps temperamental, I see no reason to question his loyalty to the Nation.

The colony’s orbital facility provided us with sensor logs. They indicated a large object entered the atmosphere, consistent with a freighter. Centurion Thirteen confirmed it was the freighter. Lieutenant Shea, meanwhile, located the crash-site on the surface. The Freighter crashed beside what appears to be an old ruin.

Centurion Thirteen is under the impression the freighter’s crash was not an accident. While she ruled out the colony’s involvement, she could provide no further information. Both her and Lieutenant Shea believe the answers to this mystery lie on the surface. The crew is currently preparing an expedition onto the surface. I, meanwhile, will be speaking face to face with the governor. He so happens to be Lieutenant Shea’s father.

The conversation with the vice-governor went rather well. He is primarily interested in keeping potential conflict with Rator III away from his world. I believe that is more than agreeable.

Further, Mol’Rihan has agreed to send another shipment of supplies. This time, it will be well defended by ships from the 12th Flotilla.

Rator III’s fingerprints appear to be all over the destruction of the freighter. Further, despite the planet’s toxic atmosphere, there appears to have been a survivor from the wreckage. Preliminary evidence suggests the culprit of the freighter’s destruction was the one who survived. Footprints indicate he fled to a nearby ruin.

At this point, I suspect this culprit to be dead. However, Command will want confirmation on Rator III’s involvement. That confirmation will likely cause chaos throughout Command. But… perhaps it will get them to realize the grave threat posed to us.

In the meantime, we will also be utilizing this opportunity to learn about the ancient ruins themselves. I cannot help but wonder if these ruins somehow tie to why the atmosphere is toxic. I’ve also requested Professor Ahnar tr’Veras’ assistance in this matter. That should give my chief of sciences, Lieutenant Shea, some extra people to coordinate with once we return to the surface.

Rator III seeks to prosecute war against the Republic.

It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when. Starfleet has proved to be supportive in these times. So much so that we have one of their intelligence officers working frequently alongside us.

But rather than sending us to watch the frontier, RRF Command is instead sending us to Vulcan. The Vulcans claim to have an urgent mission that pertains to our duties.

I respect our cousins, but I am dubious of these claims. But, we serve the Nation. We shall see what the Vulcans want…

The Romulan Republican Force is deploying all available warships to the frontier. Command believes an attack is coming. And given what I have learned, well… Kererek has this one right.

The Tebok, along with a few other vessels, is tasked with resupplying a facility just outside the Beta Reticuli system. Hopefully we do not spend too long here. I pity the officers that have to work on this facility.

Commander’s Star Log, 100380.5, Supplemental

We resupplied the facility. Right as that occurred, an unknown fleet disembarked. I made a decision once I knew what and who they were. Enemies. Invaders.

We managed to rescue those on Facility Saemna. Salil and I utilized the auxiliary plasma vent. Shea saved the people on the station. Asyr unleashed wrath.

We are redeploying to favorable positions.

The hour is here.

We are at war.

New orders from RRF Command have reached us. We are to begin assisting in the evacuations of Beta Reticuli.

The enemy is relentless in its drive to the system. There is no feasible way for us to hold onto the system. Not without diverting forces from Tri’Vokil and Chaltok.

The crew, at least, is managing…well… as well as I would expect. Long hours, but I am making sure each duty rotation is afforded optimal time to rest. Plus, we are expected to receive some help in the form of more Guard Marines for this evacuation effort. A bit of good news I suppose.

I have also heard some disturbing reports from the 8th Flotilla out near the Terrh system. I have attempted establishing contact with their senior commanders. No response. I dread to discover what occurred out there.

Commander’s Star Log, Supplemental

A bit of success in an otherwise disastrous situation.

We managed to evacuated our assigned section of the capital city of Beta Reticuli… The other vessels within the RRF… varying success. Some better than others.

Countless people will be left behind. We do not have the time or ships to evacuate the planet. I… do not know what to say on this front. I will not hope for mercy from the enemy. They have never shown mercy. But…

I will perhaps take fortune in our success. We saved countless numbers of people. And further, we have prisoners from Rator III. Though I suspect they know little: One nurse and a low ranking Uhlan.

We are redeploying to favorable positions. Command is expecting Chaltok to be the next target. Hopefully we hold there.

Elements help anyone on the surface here in Beta Reticuli.

Admiral Kererek’s counteroffensive is set to begin in a few hours. Several flotillas have already begun their redeployments. The 11th Expeditionary Flotilla and the 18th Flotilla, meanwhile, are tasked with holding Chaltok at all costs.

The enemy is expected to throw everything they have at us over the next few hours. They are under the impression we are preparing to withdraw.

These shitstains have no concept of regret. The only thing they understand is force. They will soon know it.

Commander’s Star Log, Supplemental

Admiral Kererek has his glory. All while the fight is unfinished.

Meanwhile, we held. With countless dead. Countless ships ravaged.

The enemy is surrounded now. But, the enemy is also close by. By the push of a button, they can glass Chaltok. And apparently, they have new toys at their disposal too.

I am taking a gamble. The prisoner I inherited has past experience. She is dangerous. But I do not see as having any alternatives.

And there’s still the matter of the Colonel. One thing at a time, I suppose.

The offer made by the Colonel appears legitimate.

She has further accepted the reality that we will not tolerate beyond unconditional surrender after she and her allies enact their plan. There is also the matter of experimental weapons she mentioned. I plan to have Evoch approach that front.

Now comes the matter of ending this stalemate above Chaltok. The enemy has reduced my home’s cities to rubble. And they are committing unspeakable crimes on Beta Reticuli. I dread what they have in store for Chaltok.

But we still stop them. Chaltok belongs to the Romulan Republic. If the enemy has not grasped it yet, they will get the picture soon enough.

Commander’s Star Log, Supplemental

The Enemy Invasion Force at Chaltok has formally surrendered to the Romulan Republican Force. When the ships began powering down their weapons, I could hardly believe it.

But then, it came with a cost, did it not? Chaltok’s capital city and many surrounding communities are in ruins. Though the Romulan Senate has promised to help the world rebuild, that process will take years. And I suspect many parts of the world will never be the same.

There is the matter, too, of just how many of the enemy surrendered. Most of the surrendered personnel are exhausted. And many of them have not had a meal in weeks. I pity them. But I do not forgive them. And there are their officers to question as well. We will be here for another week I expect.

Beta Reticuli is next. There are specifics there I am concerned about. T’Kon experimental technology being one of them. And other matters as well. The Ancient Regime has shown they have no regard for Republic citizens.

I plan to pool together key people on the Tebok. That will involve convening with unorthodox individuals. Considerable work lies before the crew. But for the first time in weeks, I am confident in our chances.
