Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
Having returned to Wenkudia, the crew is still attempting to determine which faction is responsible for both the EMP attack and the disarmed bomb threat. An attack has begun on the surface of Wenkudia, with vehicle weapon fire detected at the location of the dilithium mine recently visited. Five small ships have left orbit and approach *Atlantis*, their purpose not yet clear.

Pherzen 16-Mar-2022 21:53:34
+Nourik+ We are the stronger force. We're more fit to lead the Wenkudian people. It's always been clear to me. These aliens can't help us, don't you see? You show weakness by asking for their help, Wenkudia can stand on its own!
CO Cdor Harper 16-Mar-2022 21:53:52

Tenshen 16-Mar-2022 22:38:24
+CO+ That membership I've heard about. It sounds appealing. For now, I have differences to mend. Tenshen out.

CO Cdor Harper 16-Mar-2022 22:42:10
:: smiles :: +N+ I just spoke with Colonel Tenshen of the Leuk'pa. With Pherzen no longer in charge, he is prepared to pursue peace. I thought you would want to know as soon as possible.
Nourik 16-Mar-2022 22:44:23
:: doesn't appear to be particularly surprised by this, but he nods :: +CO+ Thank you. I will contact him shortly.

CO Cdor Harper 16-Mar-2022 22:58:12
+K+ I am not certain that I did anything beyond campaign for cooperation and peace for mutual prosperity during their meeting aboard Atlantis. Perhaps the message reached Pherzen's subordinates, but the General was unmoved; he attacked a mining facility held by the Thrin'pa and died in the fighting. Colonel Tenshen succeeded him and appears to be more agreeable.
Karwayin 16-Mar-2022 23:00:03
:: takes in the information solemnly :: +CO+ I see. It is...unfortunate, but is the way of change many times, is it not? For the better. We must let things play out as they will, without interference. Thank you very much for your assistance. We can take over the proceedings from here.
CO Cdor Harper 16-Mar-2022 23:00:45
:: nods :: +K+ Yes Ambassador. Atlantis is always happy to help. :: smiles at Karwayin, then to Kuari :: Atlantis out.
