As the USS Phoenix falls apart around the crew from the Gorn attack Captain Merlin and Counselor T’sai transport 30 or so refugees on a now stolen Gorn freighter and head to Starbase 35 with Chief of Science Saint-Clair in close proximity in her fighter keeping a close watch on the situation; thwarting any and all enemy aggressors.
A notification had been sent to Starbase 35 that the USS Phoenix was heading for base in bad shape for repairs and to deliver the refugees to a new life along with asylum if they so wish.
The Starbase had responded to the Phoenix as it continued to fall apart that they were making preparations to receive them. Within a couple of days to everyone’s surprise The USS Piedmont, a floating dry-dock arrived on site and within hours a un-named ship had arrived with Commodore Windsor and minimal crew on board to deliver what is to become the USS Phoenix-B once again.
The Captain beamed over to the Phoenix and Ensign Johnson transported to the Freighter to take over piloting duties.
It was not long till the Old Phoenix and the Freighter collided knocking yet another nacelle off of her superstructure making her virtually dead in space. On the freighter Johnson was knocked unconscious in the collision.
Soon after the collision Master Sergeant Mitchell boarded the now off course freighter with the cockpit filling with smoke. After some work, he was able to get the situation under control and they continued their voyage to the Starbase.
Teams continued to work to the The USS Phoenix when the word was given to abandon her and transported over to the new USS Phoenix-B where they would find a brand new ship with some very unique modifications and improvements. All of which were engineering marvels in their own sense.
Retired Captain Williams was taking time to show Chief Engineer Darnell some of these modifications and informing her that not all of them had been completed before they departed to rescue the crew.
Meanwhile Admiral Esrom was meeting with the Captain, turning over the ship to him and transferring control codes over.
The Piedmont went to work unfolding its docking arms and latching on to the Old Phoenix.
As the last of the crew beamed over to the new ship, Saint-Clair was the last to exit the ship. Upon her exit she took time to pull the commissioning plaque and present it to the Captain as he sat on the bridge.
The temporary crew continued to pilot the ship when the Executive Officer came in and requested leave for a unstated personnel reason. The leave was granted.
The Piedmont parked away from the Starbase upon arrival and waited for further orders as the rest of the rag tag convoy finally docked. Crews went to work to help the refugees and to finish all the new modifications to the New Phoenix.
What will be the Phoenix’s next mission?
What are the other modifications to be done to her?
Come Join the USS Phoenix as she gets re-commissioned and continues her galaxy wide adventure.
