The Away team are getting closer to the reason Ambassador Telrik is seeing ghostly visions while Kolar and Martin are chasing a Vulcan who they brought aboard the ship in a rescue attempt. He subsequently knocked out the transporter officer and is now on the loose. Toro and the other pilots are monitoring what looks like a rift in slace opening up in the area near the Olinski. Its madness and ghost all around. Happy Halloween!
On approach to the Delphi system as they arrived in the outer areas of it they would be able to scan through the various planets and interesting bits. Around the planet Delphi II, however, was centered 22 different ships of various Federation members, including, as well, a Klingon and rare Tholian vessel. They were huddled about the planet like a large brood of kittens.
This is a small system located within Federation space in a region that is, by all standards, nowhere special. Were they near a particular 'border' it could be considered strategic due to the proximity of the surrounding systems. However, since it is not, and as it has little economic value, nor habitable worlds, nor stable sun, well, it is good for only one thing: diplomacy.
The system itself is made up of a red giant star. It is not stable and prone to solar storm events that wash the system with radiation and disrupt communications. It may have once held several planets prior to its growth to a red giant, however now it only holds four worlds.
1. The Twins - two rocky Mercury like worlds that are so close that they orbit Delphi while making circles around one another. In close to the sun the worlds are hot and the surface barren. If they had any area that was not so unpleasant it may have been used for mining.
2. The Delphic Cloud - a large cloud of small asteroids that are not so much a belt as a sphere about the star. None of the asteroids are large and much of it is dust that, in may places, has been fused by the solar storms and created a kind of 'glass' wall around the star.
3. Planet Delphi II - This is the world that the ambassador is on. It is about the size of Mars and geologically stable. It may once have been a gas giant, though with the expansion of the sun much had been burned off leaving a world of methane seas that are semi-liquid. It's thin atmosphere, mixed with the highly charged core of the world creates constant aurora borealis.
4. Hermes - or Delphi III is a gas giant with an irregular orbit. A 'normal' gas giant whose moons have long been stripped away or lost. As it moves closer to the sun it becomes almost comet like with a tail.
A transmission came through almost immediately as they came out of warp.
=^= Delphi Fortress to USS Olinski. Welcome to the Conference. =^= the voice was female and with a slight Scottish lilt in the voice. =^= Please come in on the transmitted approach vector sent .. now. =^= Mirri would see one come in. It essentially navigated her through a 'hole' in the asteroid belt. =^= When you arrive at Delphi take whatever orbit you can find. Please be aware that the Conference center is a no-transport zone. Access to the Fortress is by shuttle or other personal vehicle only. =^=
