Posted on Fri Jan 31, 2020 @ 1:04pm by Captain Anthony Richardson & Lieutenant Amelia Wilson & Lieutenant JG Atrorius S'harien & Lieutenant JG Cassandra Rae & Lieutenant JG Noah Maritz

Mission: Do You Remember?
Location: USS Excalibur, Deck 1, Captain's Ready Room
Timeline: Mission Day 3 at 1245


"He had been forced to take on what the movement wanted, or his family were killed. We know in retrospect that this would never happen but we couldn't take the risk. When Nathaniel finally had had enough, he resigned from his admiralty position and retired, however, he never submitted retirement papers and as such, went on a vendetta, a personal one, to find his family and to find the leader of the movement, presumably to kill her" that was the hardest part well and truly over for Anthony.


He looked at his staff and wondered what was going through their heads, he wondered if they were keeping up and whether anything was actually sinking in, he knew this would be a long process coming up.

"Over the last two and a half years, he has been travelling in any way he can around to different Romulan planets and systems to find the information he needed. Yesterday, he had what he was looking for. Our mission orders are to head to the neutral zone, not the corridor. Park it up near the Desica system, send a shuttle away team, with me, to Desica Prime and rescue my family. They are being held there. The secondary mission is that Nathaniel will be there too, we will arrive well before him and he won't know that Excalibur is where it is, as the USS Kingston has been altered to read our name and number, and will be sent to the corridor on patrol, but they will look like us so it will throw the scent off if anything happens. Our secondary orders are to bring Nathaniel back with us, throw him in the brig and take him back to Earth to pay for what he has done"

"You see, there was a massive explosion a couple of months ago on Ortha Prime and in the Gaskpo system, both very severe and they crippled the reach of the movement in many ways, the Ortha Prime one was clearly a movement headquarters and they lost so much, they are very weakened at the moment, it can only be determined that Nathaniel had something to do with it, so simply put it, Starfleet wants him back on Earth to answer for these actions" Anthony had finally finished, he then just waited for what his staff had to say.

Indeed, it was a detailed and thorough explanation of events. It wasn't like Artorius to doubt any part of the story, and he didn't...but he'd heard stories of the savagery of the Free Romulan Movement and certain sects weren't known for taking prisoners.

"Respectfully Captain." Artorius began. "Has there been any proof of life towards your family? Anything verifiable?" He hated asking, he didn't want to create doubt within Richardson's mind and he didn't want to push on a sensitive topic. Time was already of the essence.

"Yes, they are fine. The movement has sent the occasional commlink, they kidnapped my sister and niece to set a point, to manipulate Nathaniel. They are tracking him down for that, the intelligence reports do not suggest that they know currently that he was the reason behind those explosions, hence why time is of the essence. If we can get there quicker than he does, we can do a rescue on the surface of my sister and niece and then be waiting in the shadows to nab Nate before anybody gets wise to our operation"

“Alright, let's get to work. We have two hours here at SFI Delphi, and then we are back on the road to go and find Nate and my sister. We have loads to work on, let's do this together. Dismissed everyone" as Anthony sat back down, he didn't want to say anything about the secondary orders, he just didn't want that discussion right now.
