Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
While surveying an ocean world containing but one small island, Atlantis suffered a surprise attack from a Romulan Warbird. Repeated hits from behind without shields have overloaded the inertial dampeners, throwing the crew around like popcorn and causing injuries throughout the ship. Shields are unresponsive, the helm is sluggish, and weapons are lacking significant power, along with other systemic issues. The situation looks grim…
