SIM Update: Title - Antioch
The USS Brian A. Olinski was assigned a mission to investigate what was happening at the Antioch system. A Pendragon-class ship, USS Dragoon, was sent earlier to investigate a sudden communication black out from the Antioch system. The ship had also stopped communicating after reaching Antioch.
Armed with this little information, the Olinski moved cautiously as they neared the Antioch system. They were able to detect the Dragoon in orbit over one of the planets but most of the systems were offline. The planet showed human habitation but in a pre-coal civilisation. Yet, microwaves were detected emanating from the planet, strongest where the Dragoon was over.
A runabout and a few fighters were sent to reconnoitre the situation. The crew on the runabout and fighters were aware of a hum that became increasingly annoying the nearer they were to the planet. One of the fighters got caught in the microwaves and found herself moving towards the planet surface. Thinking that the ship was being controlled, she discovered to her horror that her hands and feet were not doing what she wanted.
At the same time, a torpedo armed with a way to counter the microwaves was launched and successfully negated the effects of the microwaves. The fighter who was controlled regained control of her own body and was ordered to return to the ship.
What was really happening? Stay tuned …
