Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
A week after the news reached Refuge of the Federation Council's decision to aid the Free Fleets in their defense against the Xovul aggression, the Starfleet buildup in the area has been significant. Several more Federation starships have arrived, with many more from the Free Fleets also now here to bolster the defenses. The surge of Starfleet personnel has helped to expedite the repairs on Refuge, with the port's infirmary returning to duty along with some of the hull breaches having been sealed. For now, Atlantis continues to provide assistance here while attempting to anticipate the Xovul's next move...

+TAC2+ Lemme know if you need a hand.
TAC 2Lt Ammora 02-Jun-2021 21:26:56
+ENG+ Appreciate the offer. We should be good to go here soon. Ammora out.
Tech: 1.14 microns to cohesion. That should connect the grid to all the other pylons.
XO Cdr Kuari 02-Jun-2021 21:28:05

CO Capt Harper 02-Jun-2021 21:28:38

CTO Cpt Grey 02-Jun-2021 21:28:54

CTO Cpt Grey 02-Jun-2021 21:31:31
:: looks up at Harper :: CO: Terror. Fear. The feeling of having something safe... be no longer considered safe anymore. All of that, and possibly more, could be reasons behind their targeting of Refuge in the first place.
