Jevek was recently assigned to the USS Asimov, but due to certain circumstances beyond his control, he missed the USS Asimov by a few days of its shakedown cruise after leaving Starbase 243. Upon arriving, he discovered that Starbase 243 had lost the USS Asimov from long range sensors and disappeared. The Starbase had sent a number of probes towards the Asimov’s last known coordinates, but only to return with nothing. The ship that Jevek arrived on, the USS Novak, happened to be a Discovery-class vessel, that had stopped by Starbase 243 for slight refitting of its mission module – they had just completed a diplomatic mission, and were refitting for the Advanced Science Module for some deep exploration.
Due to the Asimov being missing, the Novak had been temporarily reassigned to assist in the search efforts. With the refit completed, the Novak had set out to the last known coordinates, and discovered the warp trail into the anomaly. Interference from the anomaly was too great, and the gravitometric interference nearly had pulled the Novak in direct from warp, like the Asimov did. It was only by the grace of the Advanced Science Module sensors did the Novak avoid the same fate as the Asimov. They had stopped out of range of the anomaly, and began transmitting a warning buoy for passing ships to stay away from the area.
Jevek requested to pilot a shuttle along with another NE to try to scan the anomaly up close, but unfortunately the shuttle got pulled in, and the Novak was unable to transport Jevek out.

As the shuttle experienced the same effects as the Asimov, and Zank’s ship, it began to crash towards the ocean, off the island. Fortunately, some skillful piloting and using the thrusters adjusted the crash landing to be on the other side of the island, about 500 meters away from the Asimov. Both Zank, his wife and some of Asimov crew watched as the shuttle crashed. It was brilliant fireball that crashed into the island, right at water’s edge on the beach. The shuttle was practically destroyed on impact, and the plasma storm had pretty much started a fire within the shuttle’s EPS system, destroying all the power systems and fusion generators along with it.
Jevek was severely injured, and was bleeding out. The young ensign who accompanied him, had died – a head wound from the hull of the shuttle had crushed the young man, killing him instantly. Despite bleeding out, Jevek managed to awake after the crash, and he used the sleeves of uniform to apply pressure to the wound. He could feel his leg bones were broken so he wasn’t able to move. He logically deduced that help would arrive soon, given the nature of his shuttle crash, but he could not estimate how long.
The loud crash could be heard and the impact shook the ground. A security NE who was standing guard ran back inside to alert the CSO, COS and CO. The security NE found a three other fellow crew members who ran off to the locations where the CSO, COS and CO would be at, while the security NE returned back to his guard post.
