// OROS MISSION: AFTERMATH_
➣ Unexpected Consequences
As the Eluvio's crew prepares to send a retrieval ship down to pick up Alpha and Beta teams, disturbing reports of thermonuclear explosives detonating on the planet's surface start coming in to the command center. Scans show multiple detonations across the face of the planet and more happening every minute. The identity of those responsible for the initial warhead launches is indeterminable from the information the crew's able to compile, but one thing is certain: the deactivation of the defense grid by Beta team made it possible.
It's a race against time to get the teams back before nuclear fallout reaches them, but when the ship touches down at the LZ, another wrench in the works is discovered. Groups of frightened Trilk and Fek, conflict forgotten in the face of extinction, are futilely attempting to flee unavoidable death.
Captain Larson sends out a call for all available pilots willing to brave the falling bombs to head to the surface and evacuate as many of the Trilk and Fek as possible. There's no way to save them all, but the least the crew can do is try to save some of them.
➣ OOC Details and Information
Regardless of whether they participated in the any of the missions, all characters are now able to travel to the planet's surface to round up Trilk and Fek and evacuate them back to the Eluvio. Characters capable of flying spacecraft will be able to fly the Eluvio's cargo ships and those who can't are welcome to accompany the ships to help the evacuation effort. Please note that only pilots and characters with experience flying spacecraft will be permitted to fly the cargo ships. There isn't any time to teach the skills to characters that don't already possess them.
There are 20 cargo ships. Each cargo ship can hold 1 pilot, 2 non-pilot crew members, and 5 Trilk or Fek. This means that the maximum number of aliens that can be rescued is 100.
When Alpha and Beta teams arrive the LZ, there will be Eluvio personnel on hand to explain the situation. These characters will then be able to individually decide to either return to the ship or help with the evacuation.
The evacuation efforts will last from February 1st through February 4th. After that point, all ships and characters will be recalled to the Eluvio whether they have the full 100 or not. The Eluvio will then set a course away from Oros, leaving it and the remainder of its inhabitants to their unfortunate end.
Player participation will determine how many, if any, of the Fek and Trilk are rescued. Remember that the maximum number will be 100.
Once the alien refugees are brought aboard the ship, they will need to be integrated into life aboard the ship. Luckily for both the aliens and the Eluvio crew, there are some "experts" on hand to help the transition.
TRILK - One of the potential groups of Trilk refugees will be the individuals Gamma Team 4 encountered. If rescued, the Trilk will manage to convey to the Eluvio crew that they want those team members to serve as their liaisons for adapting to life in the fleet. This means that Allura, James Kirk, Leia Organa, Hera, and Leonard McCoy will be designated the resident Trilk experts.Please feel free to NPC the Trilk and Fek as you desire. If you want to use them for a plot device, go ahead. If you want to have your character help one set up a jewelry shop and be best friends, that's absolutely allowed. If they become too unruly and need to be thrown out of the airlock, well, these things do happen!
The surviving Fek and Trilk are assumed to be the last of their kind. For the time being, please assume that they're going to be a permanent part of the fleet.
IF YOUR CHARACTER IS GOING TO PARTICIPATE IN THE EVACUATIONS please comment HERE with the name of the character(s) involved (groups no larger than three), the type of alien rescued (Fek, Trilk, or a combination) and the number of each. Please remember that a cargo ship can only hold five of the aliens at a time due to their size. Characters can make multiple trips, though the combined number of Fek and Trilk refugees cannot exceed 100. Because of this, please don't claim that your character or your character's group saved all 100. Everyone who wants to participate will be able to do so and will be given credit ICly for it.
But that's not all! The ripple effects from the Oros Mission will be felt for considerable time to come. For instance:
Lee Adama and Agent Carolina will be awarded medals of commendation for their leadership in the field. These medals are made of an unknown substance and shaped like a sixteen-point star. (Just a little FYI, you guys might want to hang onto them.) They'll also be given free passes to the day spa to get some much needed R&R.➣ And coming soon...
The events of the Oros Mission have set off a string of events that will steer us through our first plot module. The next installment will begin in March. Keep an eye on the OOC comm for further details as February draws to a close.
