Having just finished the last six months on patrol assignments, the USS Excalibur is finally assigned a mission, something that may seem to be of importance to the Federation. The ship is docked at Xavier Fleet Yards for a routine inspection and given their orders. It seems that a personal matter has developed back in a place where the Excalibur was last there some four years ago. The Raeyan Transit Corridor…

For the last twelve months, a high ranking official has been evading capture, evading all aspects to reason and has been bent on stopping the movement all on his own, for his own sanity and for the rescue of his family. That official is Commodore Nathaniel Jackson, the twist is that he is the brother-in-law of Captain Richardson.

Intelligence reports have suggested that they know where he is, but now it is a point where simply put it, he needs to be stopped. They know that with the ongoing attacks in the corridor, that they are retaliation for his incursion into Romulan space and with those reports also suggesting the recent destruction of a depot that the movement was using in the Gasko system, the time has come to send out the Excalibur.

What will they discover when they get to the corridor, will it be the same or has everything changed in the last four years?

Status: Current
Main Location: Beta Quadrant, Raeyan Transit Corridor
Secondary Location(s): USS Excalibur, Otha Prime & Iccobar System

Primary Objective: to capture Commodore Nathaniel Jackson and bring him into Starfleet for briefing on his actions
Secondary Objective: to rescue Commodore Jackson’s family, who has been last seen on Otha Prime

Threat Level: High
Intelligence Threats: So-called “Ardra” and other governments looking to take advantage of the situation

Analytical reports supplied by Starfleet Intelligence, Romulan Section, following the Treaty of Nelvana in 2387, indicated the possibility of insurrectionist movements, similar to that of the Maquis in the Cardassian/Federation Demilitarized Zone, occurring within the newly formed Raeyan Transit Corridor (RTC). They were called the Free Romulan Movement.
To that effect, assets were placed in the RTC to monitor the situation and report back. The possibility became reality on July 3rd, 2388 when the USS Venture - NCC 71845, Galaxy Class, was attacked by the Free Romulan Warbird (FRW) V’ashan, Mogai-Norexan (Valdore class).

In 2389, the Excalibur was tasked with patrolling the region and determing what assets were in the possession of the FRM. During this, an attack on a cargo ship was made. The cargo ship was the first step in a ramped up attack pattern by the FRM, after it was detrermined that the cargo ship was actually carrying a device that, when added into the sensors, could pinpoint a cloaked FRM ship and allow any ship to attack the FRM.

These attacks were ramped up, to the point that Deep Space 14 was almost brought into the firing line, that was when the Federation pulled out the Excalibur and kept a number of smaller ships in the area on a patrol only assignment. No further attacks occurred. At the same time, Commodore Jackson was approached by Lhaerrh tr’Volskiarr, the leader of the Free Romulan Movement to sabotage the USS Excalibur, in exchange, his family would not be harmed. This sabotage was undertaken, but his family was kidnapped by FRM members on Deep Space 14 during a visit.

After almost destroying the Free Romulan Movement warbird, the USS Excalibur heads back to Providence Fleet Yards for a major overhaul of its crew, nobody is safe. Nobody is assured of their position onboard the ship, all bare Captain Richardson. Unsure what is going on, the order came through from Commodore Jackson, seemingly very quick. He wanted a full new compliment of crew on the USS Excalibur. The orders seemed legitimate, the crew heads back, knowing nothing beyond their arrival.

The new crew compliment, including new senior staff, begins to arrive at Providence Fleet Yards, unaware of what is going on. Unaware of a dark secret lurking right behind their shoulder. Nobody knows this dark secret, something that eats away at the most important person throughout the whole of Providence.

All that is known is that once the USS Excalibur arrives back at Providence Fleet Yards, it will be going through a four-day computer overhaul and upgrade. Again, signed off by Commodore Jackson very quickly, the entire computer terminal, isolinear chips and every single terminal will be receiving an upgraded system, allowing the ship to easily link in with the operational centre and allow for much simpler access to intelligence and communications with Providence Fleet Yards, even during times of radio silence.

Could this be the start of something new? Refreshing everything, or is this dark secret about to appear and make life on the USS Excalibur easy or harder than it has been before?

Status: Completed
Main Location: Beta Quadrant, Southern Region, Tania Borealis
Secondary Location(s): USS Excalibur & Starbase 11

Primary Objective: Assist with disaster recovery on Tania Borealis Colony following major earthquake and until the Corps of Engineers and the USS Portland arrive
Secondary Objective: Ensure any colonists and personnel assigned to command centre are looked after and transported to Starbase 11 for return to Earth and/or reassignment.
Secondary Objective: maintain vigilance around area for a possible Klingon incursion into the system.

Threat Level: Medium
Intelligence Threats: Possible Klingon Empire ships in the region

Following a major set of earthquakes on the planet, the Tania Borealis planet requests Federation assistance. The planet was used as a colony but also as a Starfleet command center base for the southern region, to monitor Klingon activity along the border, the planet being only around 20 light years from the border. The Corps of Engineers was due to be dispatched in the coming days, but Starfleet requested the USS Excalibur to begin the operation and maintain law and order until security forces could arrive and begin more detailed security protocols.

The USS Excalibur is thereby removed from its current assignment on the Romulan border to assist with any humanitarian and disaster relief/recovery operations.

Intelligence reports suggest that due to the strategic place of the command center that the Klingons may use the natural disaster as a forward movement to plan and undertake an incursion into Federation space and destroy the outpost, which is no secret. They may plan to destroy an outpost that was monitoring their borders, however, reports have not indicated any incursions beyond their borders and this report may just be a “red herring” but the Excalibur is to maintain an active view that an incursion may take place and be ready for any possible attacks on itself and its personnel whilst undertaking this mission.
