The USS Phoenix has been en-route for the outskirts of the quadrant to finally start looking at celestial bodies for tara-forming. While on their journey the recovering helm operator, Ensign Claudia Johnson has returned to duty.
Upon her return Captain Merlin had a pleasant discussion with her and restored her to her full rank and operational status, telling her a story of a previous Captain and his helping hand that had put Merlin where he is today. Although Johnson continued to balk at accepting it she finally realized that it was done and there was nothing else to be said.
Elsewhere on the ship, there were still a few bugs cropping up coming out of Trans Warp and this time Murphy rose its ugly head in Stellar Cartography blowing a power relay and causing a small fire. Chief Engineer, Sineade Darnell, had been dispatched to the fire location to assist in its containment and restoration of power.
To throw a monkey wrench into things the Phoenix took on a new Security Officer, however this new officer, Ensign Kevin “Keen Eye” Marlowe, was highly altered with cybernetics and to make things worse he was babbling about something called DS9 and Dominion war. Which apparently is somewhere in the future, like 50 years in the future.
These oddities have the Chief Science officer, Lieutenant Cassandra Josephine Saint-Clair puzzled to say the least as well as the Ships Counselor, Lieutenant T’sai. At present T’sai is trying to have a discussion with Marlowe to see if he is mentally sound.
Sait-Clair has reported that the cybernetics should work to our advantage and is physically capable of performing the duties required of a Security officer.
Captain Merlin is in the Ready Room apparently entertaining himself with child like actions as well as tearing down his favorite weapon, performing a clean and oil routine while he awaits a call form his Executive Officer, Commander Sitelk to review plans for the upcoming investigation of the class G planet that they have arrived at.
Where did this Marlowe come from in reality?
Is this Marlowe caught up in his own delusion caused form the cybernetics?
What will the forthcoming away mission discover? A barren ready to tera-form body?
Come join the USS Phoenix and her unusual crew for an adventure into the unknown.
