Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
After a day of towing the Rixx at warp with her cloaking field extended around us, we approach the Free Port of Refuge. With no sign of pursuit by the Xovul dreadnought, it would seem that we have successfully evaded them. What will be the aftermath of their attack on a friend of the Federation's flagship that nearly resulted in the death of their queen?

HRH Ashexana 26-Aug-2020 21:51:12

HRH Ashexana 26-Aug-2020 21:54:02
Venya: I find myself in need of Refuge's excellent repair facilities... can you accommodate the Rixx for a while?
CO Capt Harper 26-Aug-2020 21:57:05

Venya Kashar 26-Aug-2020 21:57:21
HRH: Of course. We would be honored to host the Rixx. I'll make the arrangements immediately. I must ask, however, whether you feel that the Xovul will come looking for more trouble...?
HRH Ashexana 26-Aug-2020 21:58:27
Venya: It is possible, I must admit. Though, I don't think they can track us through the cloak, so Refuge should be safe from imminent danger. Whether they mean to pursue a war against the Free Fleets, I cannot yet say.

Venya Kashar 26-Aug-2020 22:05:20
HRH: Desperate times, as they say. CO: I would, however, like you to place the Rixx directly on the repair facility's landing pad with your tractor beam... if you think your pilot is good enough, that is.
NAV Lt Navarro 26-Aug-2020 22:05:50

CO Capt Harper 26-Aug-2020 22:14:36
:: dips her head to the queen :: HRH: Of course, your highness. It is what friends do for one another, yes? Certainly better than facing each other in combat, as we did years ago.

NAV Lt Navarro 26-Aug-2020 22:35:04
CSO: Slowly reduce power. We will make the actual touchdown using tractor beam power.

:: breathes a sigh of relief after Ashexana is gone. And perhaps... Nah. He shakes his head, turns, and leaves the Transporter Room, heading back to Sickbay. ::
NAV Lt Navarro 26-Aug-2020 22:35:37

Touchdown in five, four, three...

NAV/CSO: Bravo! Well done, both of you!
CSO Cdr Wright 26-Aug-2020 22:40:28
CO: Oh, I think the flying was the hard part. :: grins ::
NAV Lt Navarro 26-Aug-2020 22:41:25
:: shrugs and grins :: CSO: It just took a delicate touch.
CO Capt Harper 26-Aug-2020 22:42:32
CO: I am sure of that. Return us to their assigned orbit.
NAV Lt Navarro 26-Aug-2020 22:43:11
CO: Aye aye. :: enters the ship into a climb to parking orbit ::
CO Capt Harper 26-Aug-2020 22:44:18
XO: We should give them a few hours before accepting their offer to head down, I think.
XO Cdr Kuari 26-Aug-2020 22:44:45
:: considers this and nods decidedly in agreement :: CO: Agreed.

CO Capt Harper 26-Aug-2020 22:45:26
XO: Standard preparations for Refuge apply; we will go down by shuttle and the team will need inoculations against Orion pheromones.

HRH Ashexana 26-Aug-2020 22:47:52
Lady Venya Kashar! It's so good to see you in person once again.
CO Capt Harper 26-Aug-2020 22:48:53
XO: We should once again take advantage of the opportunity to acquire uncommon things here.
Venya Kashar 26-Aug-2020 22:49:27
Queen Ashexana! Despite our differences, I am happy to see you in one piece safe on Refuge.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 26-Aug-2020 22:49:58

MED Lt Acacia 26-Aug-2020 22:50:12

HRH Ashexana 26-Aug-2020 22:50:24
:: takes a glass of wine from a tray brought by another Orion man :: I have to say... that was close, Venya.
CO Capt Harper 26-Aug-2020 22:50:48
:: nods and grins at Kuari, then smirks at Ilaihr:: CEO: That was nice.
CEO: But, we are still bound by treaty, and they are not.
There are, of course, other interesting things in that exotic market below.
Venya Kashar 26-Aug-2020 22:51:55
:: ushers the Queen over to sit on the overstuffed couch in her office and sits beside her with her own glass of wine :: Did they just... come out of nowhere?
HRH Ashexana 26-Aug-2020 22:53:37
:: takes the seat and nods :: We were not even cloaked. I was surveying a potential system to expand our operations to, and they came from behind the star. Clever move, I admit, but I hate getting caught with my pants down.
CO Capt Harper 26-Aug-2020 22:54:28
:: thoughts of treaty binding are weighing heavily upon her at the moment ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 26-Aug-2020 22:54:47
CO: I have memorised the workings of the unit aboard the Rixx, if the treaty ever finds itself being dissolved.
SCI Lt Jude 26-Aug-2020 22:55:14
:: gives a impressive face to Ilaihr ::
Venya Kashar 26-Aug-2020 22:55:25
How fortunate that Atlantis was nearby... The Xovul apparently pack quite a punch.

CO Capt Harper 26-Aug-2020 22:55:51

XO Cdr Kuari 26-Aug-2020 22:55:58
:: leaves Harper to her heavy thoughts, focusing on preparing the various departments for arrival to Refuge ::
HRH Ashexana 26-Aug-2020 22:56:04
They do, indeed. We cannot fight them alone.

Venya Kashar 26-Aug-2020 22:57:14

HRH Ashexana 26-Aug-2020 22:58:30
:: sips at her wine, considering :: At the very least, the Kvolir. They hold no love for the Xovul. But the Federation...?
They are bound by a peace treaty that the Xovul consider worthless. If only we could show them how worthless.
