MISSION OUTLINE
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 the Ventax II government is ready for talks with the Federation about being admitted to the Federation.

The investigations into their society recently were wrapped up and now it was up to the Excalibur crew to head to Ventax II and finalize the last little pieces of their admission and submit a final evaluation. The last step for the Ventaxians.

From the last encounter with the Ventaxians, the 1000 year contract is due to expire sometime in the current decade, so the Federation considers the Ventaxians application of the utmost importance, more so that the Federation outpost on the planet is still in operation and in the hope that maybe if Ventax II was at least a protectorate of the Federation, something could be done to help.

A peaceful mission, but the Excalibur crew know that anything could change in a heartbeat?

MISSION BRIEFING
Status: Current
Main Location: Alpha Quadrant, Ventax System
Secondary Location(s): USS Excalibur & Xavier Fleet Yards

Primary Objective: to finalize the recommendation to admittance to the Federation for the Ventaxians
Secondary Objective: to rewrite and ratify a new constitution to omit the so-called “contract of Ardra”

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

MISSION BRIEFING NOTES
Before the 14th century, the Ventaxians were highly industrialized and caused destruction in the planet's ecology through various conflicts. In the year 1367, the Ventaxian leaders began pacifying the planet and cleaning the environment, using the story of Ardra to bring their people together in a common contract. After that, they were a peaceful agrarian society and effectively isolated itself from the rest of the galaxy.

In 2367, the planet fell into chaos again when, according to the Ardra story, a fabulous thousand-year period of peace and wealth would come to an end and the planet would be turned over to Ardra. A con artist took advantage of this myth and modern technology to present herself as Ardra and to bring the planet under control. She used technology to cause earthquakes, for example. Her true identity was successfully revealed by the crew of the USS Enterprise-D.

The Federation is serious about admitting the Ventaxians into the Federation, but the initial reports suggest that the constitution is a major hurdle and the contract, if indeed correct, needs to be rectified to ensure stability and to ensure that sometime this decade, there is not a peacekeeping force required to help protect the Ventax system, or even Ventax II itself.
