Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
The memorial services are over, and all of the letters to the families of the fallen have been sent. Debris, mostly Xovul, litters the surface of Refuge near the port. Starfleet Intelligence has recently reported that the Vash whose forces helped us in defense of Refuge against the Xovul has toppled the Ykavosh and assumed that title. Queen Ashexana has confirmed that the Xovul triumvirate has contacted her to formally cease hostility. The war is over, and now we celebrate; Lady Venya Kashar has turned Refuge into a massive party for all of the allied forces that made this day possible, with all of the facility's hospitality available to everyone along with a large gathering on the promenade.
