Mysterious deaths aboard Nimbus station

Today morning body was found near engineering section by Security Ensign Jonas Sanders, officer told us that it did not have any markings that wold indicate that it was crime. Medical team took body and after examining it, they determined natural cause of death, Heart Attack.

Later this day Petty Officer Gonzales found another body this time near victims living quarters, and while cause of death was also heart attack few people started to question if those were actually accidents. Speculations aroused that bot victims were given poisons but they were proven wrong after preliminary report from toxycology showed no trace of unussual substances.
For some context, both victims were areound early 30s man, with clean bill of health

We were able to recive short statement from witness of second body discovery

He looked like he fallen asleep, calm, with closed eyes. Only weird thing was that he was naked. He looked like he just woke up to fall asleep again. I noticed Petty officer Gonzales was checking him, but she soon declared <redacted> was dead and called coroner team

Is it really just a coincidence? Or maybe it’s targeted attack? Or maybe something else?

Stay tuned for more information on Soteria News Service!

//ooc: any character able to detect dark magic/energy would be able to sense presence of succubus on station, however they won’t be able to tell exactly what it is, nor track it unless they get really close

Recovery of Lieutenant Commander Shepard

As per official news today Captain Laurena Bowells recovered escape pod with unconscious Lt. Commander Shepard.  There are still a few facts unknown to public. Lt. Commander Shepard was found aboard escape pod from Sovereign Class vessel with valid Federation transponder signal. She was heavy injured and unconscious, in addition there were traces of drugs found in her blood system.  After Lt. Commander Shepard woke up she admited to not remembering large part of time spent aboard vessel that holded her, possibly side effect of one of the drugs she was injected with.

With curent information we cannot exclude possibility of a security breach, nor possibility that Shepard could cross sides under extreme duress.  Currently all evidence and intel point to the operation of a Federation starship at same time and same area as kidnapping took place. It is highly unlikely that Federation as a whole was directly involved in the kidnapping. However, it is possible that some factions within the organization were directly involved, since they were delivering hardware and likely intel crucial to succed in capturing small vessel like Aerowing in open space. In addition, the flight recorder was missing from the craft.  While that doesn’t prove that the Federation took part in the incident, it is still important information.  There was clearly some intent to hide whatever was recorded by sensors by unknown parties.

Any information related to status of Lt. Cdr. Shepard is to be classified and not to be discussed unless proper authorization is obtained and security procedures followed.

Commander Megan Shepard Recovered!

Today Captain Laurena Bowells, embarked on mission to unknown distress signal aboard her vessel, the USS Apollo’s Light. Upon arrival to the scene sensors of the Galaxy Class vessel found an escape pod with no sign of where it came from.  There was no mother ship nor any wreckage.

Captain Bowells made the quick decision to order the escape pod aboard. After a security team opened it up, they found Lieutenant Commander Megan Shepard inside. She was unconscious and injured but she was provided quick help from the experienced medical team. Her condition is reported as “not life threatening” by the medical staff aboard the Apollo’s Light.

The official stance from Solas Tempus is given to be;

Commander Shepard escaping from enemy imprisonment is a fortunate event.  Despite extensive injures the Commander managed to get off enemy vessel and send a distress signal, allowing us to find her. On the orders of the CMO of the Apollo’s Light, she is resting while her wounds heal and is not permitted visitors for the time being. The only information we can currently provide is that she is stable and her wounds are healing.

For now we don’t have more information apart from fact Commander Shepard is resting in sickbay and not taking visitors apart from few trusted people.  Reporters were unable to get an appointment to meet with the Commander at this time.

Unknown Signal Intercepted

Operations officer of Nimbus Station has confirmed with crew of INV New Hope existence of unknown signal leaving planet, location was confirmed to be at or around of any colony, station, or ship identified within the Schatten System itself, but it was impossible to get proper coordinates.  It is also possible that signal was somehow encoded and / or relayed as to be especially difficult to detect.

Signal is strongly encrypted and teams at working on decoding it.  It is possible, though unconfirmed that some faction was at work within the system to produce the transmission.  The signal has been sent to Starbase Tranquility for concurrent efforts to decode along with the crew of the New Hope and specialists here on Nimbus.

At this time it is crucial to find way to intercept and fully decode signal like this if it will happen again.  The facts that we know at this time:

  • It is scrambled and encrypted.
  • Appears to be transmited using long range coms, possibly using hyperspace related technology according to New Hope technicians.
  • Appears to be transmitted from area of the system which uninhabited, but sensor scans don’t show anything unusual.

Fight Over Barrier

Mysterious ship that appeared near barrier few days ago was today attacked by Solas Tempus strike force after getting confirmation that crewman that disappeared are aboard.

STV Epoch and 2 squadrons of Peregrine fighters accompanied by Jaina and Tal Ravis in their own fighters (X-Wing and Scimitar respectively) attacked the heavy-armed vessel. During the attack the ship responded with their own squadrons, destroying at least 2 fighters in initial contact. Shortly after pilots of Peregrines started feeling weird about whole fight, some even fleeing field of combat.  This was later confirmed to be a form of psionic attack known as Battle Meditation.  Reports from the Epoch crew show that they suffered similar symptoms.

We received statement from one of pilots, flight officer Gabrielle Valenzuela;

It was like back head feeling that you are about to die, you instinctively want to run, find safe place, it was hard to resist, I was among ones that did run away.  I’m not proud of that but it was like that, I was afraid of death. Hell I couldn’t even believe that we all risked life for one random person! Now I do feel bad about it, after all every life is important.

After ship defences were lowered, strike team composed of Jedi Master Reman and Tobi Angelos beamed aboard to search ship for missing personnel and Jyn. After they found Jyn the strike team was forced to fight through her own enraged attacks, before Jyn managed to injure Reman who holds to the story that he allowed this to happen.  Just before  getting tackled to ground and was knocked unconscious.  Jyn is currently resting in sickbay, her status has not been made public as yet, though it is known she is allowed select visitors.

The crew of the unknown vessel informed Solas Tempus that it’s designation is INV Raven’s Hand, an Harrower Class Dreadnought.  The last words of it’s captain, before one of Sith aboard killed him, asked Captain Leonard of STV Epoch to keep his crew safe.  The safety of the crew of the Raven’s are of course being held safely in Solas Tempus custody abiding by the standards of humane treatment of prisoners. Solas Tempus released a statement ensuring that the crew will be treated with dignity and respect during their questioning and debriefing.  The future of the enemy vessel is unknown, Solas Tempus declined to comment but rumors suggest the vessel may be either stripped down for research or perhaps refit and introduced into the fleet.
