Mission Summary

Notura has applied to join the Federation, and the USS Vindicator was dispatched to look into their application. This was before hostilities broke out between the Federation council and Starfleet.

Notura has an organic energy source that appears to be similar to plutonium or uranium, and they’ve offered it to the Federation in order to encourage the acceptance of their world for membership. They are warp capable, but they limit the use of all technology to only government use, all others are banned from using any technology. The society is governed by men, and women are treated as little more than breeding stock.

Trouble starts almost immediately when the away team is attacked by a horde of giant animals, then part of the team gets lost in an avalanche, and Commander Rochelle Ivanova has been taken captive. Captain Landon Neyes went alone to search for Commander Ivanova, despite protests of security and his yeoman. The away team had been recovered, but the command team was more difficult.

The command team were successfully recovered with major thanks to LtCmdr Almar Dahe`el and Lt. Zola working together releasing vital sign sensing probes and taking the Vindicator into Notura’s atmosphere. The ship did take a little bit of a beating for her jaunt, but the end justifies the means. Commander Rochelle Ivanova and Captain Landon Neyes are currently in the care of sickbay after being recovered dead on arrival. The Trill Symbiosis commision has been contacted about Neyes’ current state as he’s not likely to recover fully at present time. They’ll be retrieving him in short order. The rest of the Vindicator crew will be limping into shipyards in Klingon space, meaning everyone is back from the planet and should be preparing for our arrival at the yards.
