Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
While dealing with the immediate aftermath of defending the Free Fleets cruiser HMS Syrinx from Xovul attack, we received a distress call from the enemy's wreckage, originating from an escape pod containing one lifesign that we beamed aboard: an injured human woman called Anastasia Stecker. After receiving medical care and regaining consciousness, she asked to talk to Admiral Blackthorne, claiming to be his half-sister. Her request was granted by the Admiral, and after the remote family reunion, she was granted guest quarters. Repairs to both ships have gone well over the past day since the battle, and we now prepare to part ways with the Syrinx.
