While en route to the Aurian territories within Polarian Alliance Space to collect some Aurian Crew members, the crew of the Intrepid were going about their daily duties, when Specialist Bruuk stumbled on a paralysed crew member.
After calling for medical assistance, Brukk rushed the crewmember to the Medical bay. After some examination Lt Peridot, ascertain that there was some sort of unidentified poison coursing through his veins. Estimated only a few hours before the poison reached his heart and ultimately fatality. Peridot required the specimen alive in order to create an antidote.
The Captain tasked various crewmen to locate whatever had poisoned the crewman. Attention was brought to Specialist Kroom in regard to a poisoned plant, wasting no time, Kroom quarantined the specimen and examined it. Sharing the information with Bruuk who headed the search team, it was soon discovered it was the same poison.
Jnr Lt Jag was overseeing his crew scrubbing down the Starfall drives from his now official Ready room in Engineering when a minor power surge failed and comms went down throughout the ship.
Accompanied by Tokker Jag found a crewmember paralysed in the maintenance tubes. repairing the comms he and Tokker raced the crewmember to Medical Bay.
Meanwhile, the power surge caused the life support system keeping Ensign Harris stable to fail. She started to go into cardiac arrest and Peridot and Captain Fang attempted to resuscitate the comms officer!
During this scene I decided to test out the Intense Action Scene rules. They seemed to work well and were exciting, although it does not look good for the NPC as there is only 1 turn left and still some objective points to gain…
