Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
Hidden in low orbit of a red dwarf star, our combined Starfleet/Free Fleets defense force lies in ambush, as our intelligence indicates that a Xovul attack on the Free Fleets shipyard located on and above the star's second planet is imminent. Five dreadnoughts with dropships are expected, so Marines and Free Fleets ground troops from the ships that carry them have been deployed to the surface facility, located in a forested valley. Upon their arrival, our flotilla will charge out of the star's corona and disrupt communications as we begin our counterattack.
