Escape from Dark Ventures, Sav's Tale

Post Count: 50

It had been a long time since the 'incident on Apollonia. The courts had decreed that the 'incident' was about a Raver Girl falling in a private shipyard and skewering herself upon debris in her most intimate area, causing all sorts of damage. Upon being rescued, she had fixated upon the Apollonia Federation Councilman and had created all sorts of dark, macabre fantasies about him and with him. Still, she was a Federation Citizen, and L'Tandrey Citizen, so they put her through many surgeries to repair her to let her have a chance to heal. After that was many sessions with Psychic Counselors to get rid of her fantasies. However, as with anything that is tied up with a court system, Aristocrats, Councilmen, and the underground, the truth is always far worse than the window dressing.

Save'ena Tillatix, a Mephetian who grew up on Apollonia, but is originally from L'Tandrey Space, was the victim of a particular brand of dark Hobby involving the underground and sex trade. She was rescued right before death, escaping her 'fate', barely, and thanks to being of a naturally psionic race, was able to retain her true memories of what happened and keep the false overlays at bay. But, the realities were intruding further into the falsehoods, while the falsehoods kept up their lies to the outside world. All was tearing the young girl up inside. Add to this torment a deliberately tampered with 'healing mesh', a mesh that was supposed to keep her alive, but was designed to kill, and the entrapment within this other world continues to tighten its hold upon her.

Now an officer in Starfleet, and CAG of the Merlin, everything is supposed to be roses and daphodils, right? Well, the Dark Ventures of the Elite still have their hold, and desires, upon the young mephetian girl and just don't want to let go, even as she fights to get out of their hold, but seemingly by herself as she cannot actually say what happened thanks to the false overlays tied to any mention of 'THE INCIDENT".

The Perez Nebula

The Merlin, now rested after an emotional shakedown, is now leaving port. The path set by the former chief science officer and conn officer is one that will allow them to investigate new planets and anomalies Starfleet did not have access to before Romulan space was opened. Their first objective is the Perez nebula, named after the 21st century astronomer Laura Perez. This nebula and it's make up have interested the Federation for years as it contains elements only found on Earth. It has not been explored because any Romulan ship that approached was never heard from again. Now, it is the Merlin and her crew that will brave the rumor and legend.

Will the crew suffer the same fate as her Romulan counterparts? Will the unravel the mystery that has grown as big as the Bermuda triangle on Earth? Only time will tell as the intrepid crew prepares to take on the unknown....

Old, New Ship

Post Count: 423

After 5 years of teaching at the Academy and recovering from injuries sustained while aboard the Merlin newly minted Lieutenant Commander John "Apollo" Barstow returns, this time as her commander. The ship currently sits in space undergoing final upgrades and repair. After a year she is now ready for her crew and new mission.

Merlins first mission will be to run through her paces at a nearby test site. First up maneuvering tests, then weapons, sensors, fighters and then a quick mock mission for the crew to get used to working together. However, this mission becomes anything but quick when an asteroid is discovered with a power source resembling Romulan power signatures. The area is supposed to be completely uninhabited, so, the crew must jump in head first and investigate.

The mission is supposed to be quick and simple, and this is only a minor snag. Instigating should be simple, what could possibly go wrong?
