Notes of Interest

  • Mark Sekler is missing and unaccounted for after the chaotic events that occurred on Eutonia. Intelligence assets believe that he was captured by a mercenary group, but his whereabouts are unknown.
  • Intelligence assets alert Starfleet, and eventually Outpost 112, that the Sindareen military is preparing an offensive against Cardassian assets in Gateway Sector. Starfleet consciously avoids taking sides and does not warn the Cardassians even though the Sindareen fleet and ground forces are sizeable and would overwhelm the Cardassians easily. Major Hirsch has misgivings about concealing this intelligence from his friend, Glinn Karo.
  • Petra Shannon and Evan McNamara's relationship has progressed and they are officially a couple.
  • Ferrari apologizes to Kali, Divash, and Paige Reagan and expresses that he needs to learn to control his emotional side. He begins training with Tybal in order to gain control of it.
  • Glinn Karo was possessed by the Vacet entity and is slowly manipulating events to regain control of his physical body and the Amberlyth Key, which is secured in OP112's secure scientific lab. He requests that Gul Vacet's body be transferred to OP112.

  • The Cardassian mining facility on Fesagar II comes under attack by Sindareen forces. Captain Carlin and Major Hirsch recall all personnel from the city to the outpost and put in place a standing yellow alert. Fesagar II is within the same star system as a Federation colony, Gede. Divash leaves her mother behind at Heaven with Evan McNamara because of the recall. Leata makes a final attempt to convince Divash to evacuate with the Orion ship in orbit.
