Summary Award (From December 2014) Star Trek: Eternity

Excerpt from the summary:
The Asari team digs into the stations computer system, attempting to send a message. “We’ve found more than we expected, we’ll need a bigger ship!” that’s the good news. The encrypted transmission also contains the bad news, “The station is crawling with Cerberus troops” so much for being abandoned. The team manages to bring the internal sensors on-line to track the Cerberus troops, and discover that there are only about 20 on board… and 6 of them are heading right towards the other half of their team.

Summary Winner January 2015 – Mass Effect: Paradise Lost

The Asari team digs into the stations computer system, attempting to send a message. “We’ve found more than we expected, we’ll need a bigger ship!” that’s the good news. The encrypted transmission also contains the bad news, “The station is crawling with Cerberus troops” so much for being abandoned. The team manages to bring the internal sensors online to track the Cerberus troops, and discover that there are only about 20 on board… and 6 of them are heading right towards the other half of their team.

Down in the lower levels of the station, the Krogan / Human team had just stumbled into a room full of crates, some of which contained combat mechs. Something that might have helped the previous occupants retain possession of their station, had they been activated. Their search was cut short however as a sniper who’d been hidden in the rafters opened fire. The team dove for cover, and had just started the process of flushing him from his perch when the message came in that 6 more enemy troops we’re headed right for them. That left them very limited time to deal with this new threat. The problem with scoped weapons is that it narrows your field of view, thus leaving the Krogan, Urdnot Chatok a chance to get onto the catwalk. Going into a full charge, the 800 pound Krogan slammed into the Sniper, sending him sprawling down to the floor below, where Patrick was able to easily finish him off. All that was left was to prepare for the incoming enemy team…

Back home, the rest of the team works diligently to bring the new power core online. Working together, they managed to dampen ambient vibrations that the core was causing, discover that the station wouldn’t be able to handle the core at full power, and figured out where to throttle it at, and finally start to power it up. 5%… 10… 15… 20… so far so good.

Within, Amelia Moore suffers contractions of childbirth, hoping that a security field shall stop the invaders. On the surface, Logan discusses the capabilities of generation 7 nanoprobes, exposing concepts that give the visibly impaired Talla Vrenak and the unaffected Marisol Hocevar cause for more questions.
