At her order the Ark Angel came about and lept to warp for their destination ETA 4 hours.
Four hours later the Ark Angel dropped from warp outside their target of the Yellek system taking cover within the thick Ort cloud at the system’s border to mask their approach into the system behind a large comet fragment. “..Steady as she goes helm.” She said. “..All departments lets begin a full range of cultural inputs and scans I want a full up to the minute report on current happenings on Yellek 3 in the hour.” She said.
So far on scans no sign of FTL capable craft were present though some space structures were in orbit of the third planet as primitive space stations. All were being powered by fusion batteries/reactors.
Lieutenant Trainor finished up his scans and sent them over to science and engineering for more analysis.
From where she stood on the bridge, some of the officers towering over her, even when sitting, Delarosa nodded. “Is there anything in specific you’ll be needing from the psychiatric department, Captain?” She assumed there would be a close eye kept on the culture they were meeting, in order to watch for any signs of hostility or changes in behavior that could result in unfortunate consequences. Although, these were but assumptions, and those weren’t the best to run off of.
”..Get your staff to pipe into their cultural channels and news briefs get a feel for up to the minute whats going on on their planet. Same for everyone else in your departments..” She said for the other DH’s
“Right away, Captain.” Roux gently inclined her head, stepping back to relay the order to her small staff of psychiatrists.
Not seconds after the counselor had spoken, Jasmijn stepped silently onto the bridge. She assumed their sudden drop from warp meant they were edging closer to the system. Stepping down to stand a bit away from the Captain, she forcibly held her tongue, knowing the counselor had probably been addressing Andone, judging from what she had heard.
”..Ah Commander welcome to the bridge, I trust you settled in during our trip here?” she asked.
“Thank you.” Jasmijn returned, facing Drudoc. “That I have.. a fine ship, the Ark Angel is. You must be proud, sir.”
”..That she is, one of the finest, with an even finer crew..” Drudoc said.
“Appears as if these stations orbiting the third planet are being powered by fusion reactors, Captain.” Tenzing piped up. “Though I’m not seeing any of our target crafts on sensors.”
”..Noted keep scanning on all broad spectrum, try looking for dilthium deposits…” she suggested.
Tugging her attention from the Captain, Jasmijn furrowed her eyebrows. “Have you checked long-range scanners; is it possible they could be outside of our general sensor reach?” She offered to them.
Tiglath stood at his station and checked the tactical sensors. He didn’t like this ‘Utopia’ society. Nothing is perfect, nothing is as what it seems. He didn’t see anything either, and that bothered him. He kept it to himself though as he ran through some scans. He decided to try a tachylon scan.
Tachyon scans turned up nothing in the realm of cloaked or stealthed ships or other sources.
Kalitta sat silently to the captains left, taking in what everyone was saying. Unfortunately there was very little for her or her department to do. They were already prepping for any medical assistance that the planet may require. But Tiglath was right about a Utopian society. Nothing is ever so perfect.
Suddenly as the scans were happening on the far side of the system from where they were a blip was picked up, one of a low warp burst! This was followed a moment later by a 2nd both now targeted on long range scans showed two small arrow shaped craft moving away from the system at warp 1.1 and warp 1.3 respectively before stopping a light year away and turning about.
“Picking up low warp signatures on the far side, Captain.” Lieutenant Trainor called out. “Looks like they’re stopping..... and now turning around......” The Operations Chief said in a lower tone.
Then after a moment or two another energy pulse was seen from both ships and signs were evident that some kind of accident had occurred with their engines. Faint radio transmissions were picked up seeming like some kind of distress call but the signals were too weak plus too far from their home system for rescue to come from the Yellek people.
Tenzing noticed an energy pulse coming from the ships, and put it on screen. “Captain, it appears these ships may be in trouble.... engines most likely.” He stated. “I’m also picking up a few radio transmissions coming from the ship, but we’re too far out to hear what they’re saying. Plus I doubt the planet is picking up the transmissions at all.”

Kalitta sat anxious as to what could have happened to the ship. She thought she should make her way to sick bay but she also wanted to hear further confirmation about what happened from the rest of the crew before she jumped the gun, as it could give her insight as to what kind of injuries to expect. She did however have the foresight to call on her staff. =/\= Kalitta to Trax. Please prepare for possible injured. One of the Yellek ships appears to be in trouble. I will join you shortly in sick bay.=/\=
