Mission Info

Status Current Mission
Description At Iota Command work and planning is underway with the aim to make Task Force 37 self sufficient in the event of a worst case scenario event - the catapults destruction. In preparation for this the USS Hephaistos has been tasked with surveying and if necessary establishing an F.O.B. on a planet two days away from the recently captured Hirogen Asteroid Base. Data recovered from the base indicates that the planet is exceptionally rich in a wealth of materials needed for starship construction and has an ideal climate for mass production of crops. The kicker? The planet is covered almost entirely in tall dense forest and large lakes. Oh and did we mention? The Hirogen marked it as off - limits.
Start Date Sat Mar 3rd, 2018 @ 1:57pm
End Date Sat Jun 30th, 2018 @ 1:57pm

Mission Summary


1) Survey the planet and attain confirmation of the mineral caches and viability for sustainable crop growth.

2) Investigate natural fauna and wildlife

3) Establish a secure operating base

Message from Starfleet:
"While we are unaware of any indigenous sentient species care should be made that in the event of discovery of such a group the crew should cover all traces and document information for further observation. Given the hostility of the planet and the lack of any visible inhabited areas from recent Hirogen scans we place the likelyhood of a native sentient species at 4%. The crew are also reminded this area is still within reach of hostile Hirogen factions."

What to expect:

1 - Players should be prepared for this hostile environment and this to require some out of the box thinking.

2 - Expect problems from the terrain

3 - Expect problems from the Wildlife

4 - Backup will be hard to get to you.
