Summary Award (For August 2014) Starbase 35

Excerpt from the summary:
Starbase 35 is anything but your typical startbase. This is where those that have been deemed to difficult have been sent. In the more recent past, things are not what they seem to be at all on the station. George Williams, the irascible barkeep, has yet another secret. It would seem that he is Commander JoAnne Ross’ father. In some strange way that has yet to become clear, he is there to over see what happens to Ross and Merlin and the rest of the souls on the station. . .

Summary for August 2014 – Starbase 35

Starbase 35 is anything but your typical startbase. This is where those that have been deemed to difficult have been sent. In the more recent past, things are not what they seem to be at all on the station. George Williams, the irascible barkeep, has yet another secret. It would seem that he is Commander JoAnne Ross’ father. In some strange way that has yet to become clear, he is there to over see what happens to Ross and Merlin and the rest of the souls on the station.

And just when things seemed it couldn’t get any worse, A ship appears.. one that is not in their current database… And Ross starts firing on the vessel without provocation. Lt Zoe Windsor takes action and stops the attack and sends Ross to the brig.

Meanwhile, the Independence and her crew are trying to stay alive. A Marine Fighter flying escort to the ‘Indy’, makes a landing on the station and the marine, one James Statham, starts to make his way to the command center to stop the attack and save his ship.

Amid all this confusion, Merlin struggles to keep the crew from going completely off their hinges. Zoe is still too confused about some recent revelations to have any care of what happens to Ross, as long as the Commander is kept far away from her. She just wants to do the job she’s been trained for.

A meeting has been called to discuss just what to do about Ross. Into this comes a mysterious woman who claims to have the solution. The evidence they seek is hidden in Admiral Barrett’s possessions on the Indy. Once that is found, the hooded woman claims that life will return back to normal.
