S1 Episode 15 " …A hornets rest and blue skins in white…"
SYNOPSIS. The Crew of the USS exodus arrives at the last known system that the USS hornet visited. Gloombridge 1830 is an extensive system that has a yellow sun. Trying to use long range scanners is not possible due to an aberrant amount of mesionic radiation in the system blocking most scans EXCEPT short range scanners. After a probe is launched, it is found out that there is 12 planets with unknown debris around the 5th planet (an ice planet where in the day its 100 below zero and can get down to 200 below zero at night). which includes: 5 different hull types of Tritanium, 4 types of Ditanium, and other generic garbage. Captain A.J Stewart orders scans for large pieces that might have some logos or a ship registry and finds an Kah’Lahh ship hull with writing ( translated as the Imperial warship Backbiter) traces of disruptor fire and an unusual energy signature. The Captain orders scans for life pods. 3 are found, one in orbit with 9 life signs but thready, the second on the planet and the third an alien life pod on the planet. A channel is opened up and the life pod in orbit is hailed…
Finding out that air is running out and the other 8 crewmembers are sedated, The Doctor who sedated them asks for immediate assistance. The Captain orders a Marvin to be taken to dock with the life pod and most of the crew goes along to help get them aboard faster. (cut scene to outside ) The Marvin docks seamlessly with the life pod and opens its hatch. Finding the crew asleep, one with a belly wound , one with head Trauma and one with a broken leg, they are all helped over to the craft and brought aboard as TOUCAN 12345 checks the ships manifest . The people are as follows CAPTAIN Dominick Valaducci (broken leg) , Chief Science officer Emily (a lt commander) who is a friend of acoras, The Chief medical officer , 2 ensigns , and 4 crewmen.
The crew of the hornet are taken to sickbay while the crew launches down to the ground to retrieve the 2nd life pod. The Survivors there are 2 ensigns and 6 crewmen ( which PSI officer max discovers one to be psionicly active with an unknown ability). They are taken up to the ship in orbit.
After treating the survivors ( Emily is in a severe coma BUT will revive in a few days.) the captain talks with captain Valaducci. Apparently the Kah’Lahh ships came out of NOWHERE ( they were not on sensors) and there were several ships. The captain welcomes him and as soon as he is able to leave sick bay, he is welcome to stay aboard until they get to earth. Psi Officer max checks out the crewman who is psi active. and finds out that this crewman has energy absorption abilities. He gives him a choice, Join PSICORP or try to make a run for it, and gives him, 24 hours to decide ( DA DUM!).
Dr Acora is by her fiend Emily who is still in a coma, she waits by her side to wake up…..
Back aboard the bridge, After doing a sensor sweep for the black box of the hornet, it is found and brought aboard for analysis. The analysis shows the following. The hornet came into the system and found similar debris, but a alien distress call was coming from the surface. All of a sudden several Kah’Lahh war ships decloaked and did a broadside on the ship. Fighting back and taking a few down with them, the hornet had to abandon ship after an unrepairable coolant leak caused a warp core breach… out of the 10 life pods ejecting, 8 were shot down by the Kah’Lahh. That is when the captain orders further scans on the planet for life signs. Dr Acora finds some vegetation, some fungus , several large life forms and the alien life in the life pod on the surface. The captain orders an away team to investigate and save the aliens.
Approaching on foot to the life pod, 2 of the blue skinned aliens come out and “greet” the crew with being snippy. The aliens are Krylar (Andorians) From 43 beta Come Berenices. The sublieutenat and his 2 crewmen have been stuck here on the planet for 9 months and wish to go home! Talking with captain Stewart, he finds out that they also were ambushed by the Kah’Lahh but comments ( you may be pink skins, but at least you aren’t stinkin vulcans!). The captain welcomes them to the ship and The Exodus leaves the system.
Five days later at warp 2, the exodus is greeted at the edge of the Krylar system with 2 Krylar warships. Permission is granted after the subleuitenant talks with the captain and they head in system. out of the 12 planets, the Krylar homeworld is an ice planet ( thin atmosphere) in the 10th place , there are also 2 earth like planets that are colonies of the Krylar. Docking at Krylar 2 space station, the ship refuels and the captain is granted an audience with base commander Krull. Krull welcomes the crew for saving his comrades from the other planet and arranges an ambassador to meet within 12 hours. The space station is mostly crystal based tech ( Tritanium is a new addition to the space station) and max the psi officer finds out that the crystal controls are PSI active. Toucan 0u812 trades his built in med kit for help getting to the library. the rest of the crew decide to go to the bar and relax.
Max finds out that Crystal manipulation is controlled by 7 family guilds on the planet and max tries to probe for info on the first family. Toucan 0u812 gets to the library and finds out their androids have positrionc brains and decided to pester an Krylar for information on where they are made. The Krylar leads the toucan to an airlock and thus spaces the annoyance……
