USS Eagle, NCC 2185
Title: An Unexpected Detour, Part Eleven
Location: USS Eagle
The small but valiant crew of the USS Eagle just witnessed an amazing thing.
After they fired upon the "warship", it appeared undamaged, yet debris was
flung far away from it. This helped show them where the boundary was of the
enemy's projected image.
"Recommendations?" Captain Kematsopoulos asks.
"Keep aiming where we are, it's doing some damage to something," Commander
James Cline replies.
"Agreed," the Captain orders.
"Sir, there is a ship is on our port side," Ensign Cochrane reports.
"Good work," Captain Kematsopoulos replies.
"Xern give the coordinates to Lahrs," CDR Cline orders.
"Sir, maybe those cloaked ships are abetting the projection in some
fashion," Unstoffe suggests.
"Agreed but most likely the projections are from those deposits of duranium-tritanium,"
the Captain speculates.
"The ship is at 53853847303jg point 45378324" Ensign Cochrane says to Unstoffe.
"Thanks!" Ensign Unstoffe replies, entering the coordinates into phaser targeting
"Mr. Unstoffe. Make it look like a miss for the "warship" if you can, the
"I'm pretty lousy at missing, but I'll give it a try, sir!" the Ensign replies
eagerly. He inserts a 15 degree offset into port phaser alignment and fires.
The torpedo appears to be on in intercept course with the image of the warship
but at the last second it veers off to miss it and hits the real warship.
The Captain hoped that those responsible for sacking the Star and this elaborate
deception would think that the USS Eagle merely got a lucky shot and that
their ruse had not been discovered.
"Darn, I missed," Unstoffe jokes.

Location: USS Eagle
Success! The shot was good and nearly crippled one of the enemy vessels.
The vessels' crews and captains remained unaware that the Eagle had figured
out the deception.
"Excellent missing Ensign, 'Miss' again!" Captain Kematsopoulos orders wryly.
"Aye sir," Ensign Unstoffe says as he fires making it look like another missed
The computer chirps with an incoming message for CDR Cline. The Executive
Officer taps the console and down loads the data into a padd. The computer
has finally finished the analysis of the "black box" of the Star and the
incomplete logs that Ensign Unstoffe down loaded.
"Sir, the black box has revealed that we've had a "tail" since Galadon XII
!" he exclaims.
"What!?" the CO replies equally shocked.
"Yes, One of those cloaked ships has been following us since... Galadon..no...Starbase
Six??? Yes, since Starbase Six! There's a brief interruption here that's
"Here," the XO says giving the CO the padd. "This just in from the black
box...Other data shows.... pirates attacked the Star, boarded her and took
the famed jewel, the Rigellian Star. That's the one the ship is named after.
"Excellent work! Seems like one of our little friends here broke off following
us to attack the Star. Let's find out who. Ensign, continue missing," the
Ensign Unstoffe fires another volley. This time the explosion seriously damages
the nearest enemy ship and the Eagle rocks from its shock wave. Their cloaking
and sensor deceiving probes malfunction. We can see clearly the profiles
of four ships and the eight probes that were "broadcasting" the image of
the Galadonese warship.
Shimmering simultaneously out of existence on the view screen is the projected
sensor image of the Galdonese war ship and into existence was something else.
Fortunately for the Eagle they are no where near the size and fire power
of the Galdonese one they thought they had when the conflict began.
So what appeared to take its place? An irate emerald skinned humanoid of
about 1.8 meters high appears on screen as does ... the bridge of an Orion
Title: More Questions Than Answers: An Unexpected Detour, Part Thirteen
Location: USS Eagle
The USS Eagle has just discovered who was behind the attack of the passenger
cruise liner. The image of the Orion responsible is on screen. He is dressed
both richly and outlandishly. He has many colorful tattoos. His hair is dyed
and outlandish orange.
The message appears on the main view screen.
"I am Jasperald, I am in ... possession of something...very valuable. I will
destroy you if I must. Back off and stand down your weapons. I order it!"
he says stomping his foot.
Meanwhile on the Star, Cadet Yariju's engineering talents bring the shields
back online and he begins work on the phaser banks. Ensign Ralph assists.
On the Eagle, Captain Kematsopoulos motions for tactical to fire again. This
time a full spread of photon torpedoes hit the lead ship.
The pirate captain screams to somebody off screen, "NOW!"
Captain Kematsopoulos says bemused to Jesperald, "You are no longer
in a position to dictate terms."
The garish pirate walks off screen for a minute and then returns very
angry. His bridge now shows sparks and fire.
Jesperald was getting desperate, "I still have the 'item'."
"You attacked the Rigellian Star Adventurer to get the jewel it was
named after," the Captain says accusingly.
Jesperald smiles an affirmation and says, "Yes, but you don't want an intergalactic
incident do you Captain?" Then he talks again off screen and returns. "You
are hoping to make a good career out of your time in Starfleet aren't you?
You don't want to have to explain how the jewel gets destroyed to your superiors,"
he finishes. Now it was the attackers turn to stall for time and come up
with a new plan.
Captain Kematsopoulos ignores him and orders, "Stand down your weapons and
call off the attack. We will talk then." He backs up those words by motioning
tactical to ready another barrage.
Jesperald replies defiantly, "I will stand down weapons, but my shields remain
"Good. Stand down your weapons," the Captain repeats.
Jesperald peers as if thru the screen while Ensign Unstoffe targets other
ships' engines. The leader of the pirates, signals to a crew member off screen.
The Captain the Eagle finally getting used to his new telepathic abilities
from the mutation, does not believe him and senses other deceptions as well.
The pirates fired another shot on the Star.
"Stand down from your attack on the Star," the Captain commands.
"I will pause in my attack of the Star," the devious Orion says, motioning
his crew to stand down. "No funny business," the clever pirate says.
Captain Kematsopoulos motions to blast the pirate ship that is targeting
Star, when needed. "What do you see?" Captain K asks the bridge crew.
Comander Cline speaks first, "Reports in, sir. The lead pirate ship has weps
on stand by. Shields are at 80%".
"Weapons off line immediately or we will fire," Captain K threatens.
"Now!" Jesperald orders.
All weapons on the pirate ships fire upon the Eagle. The tiny Oberth class
ship takes on serious damage.
Title: More Questions Than Answers: An Unexpected Detour, Part Fourteen
Location: USS Eagle
The pirates continue their attack on the Eagle taking down her starboard
shields down to 50 percent. The ship shakes violently. Two of the enemy ships
circle the Eagle and fire again. They charge up for another volley on the
Ensign Unstoffe return fire taking out the lead ship's shields and looks
at panel for damage reports." Sir, our starboard shields are down! And I've
lost the other forward phaser bank!" he updates.
Things looked grim for the Eagle until suddenly, The Rigellian Star Adventurer
fires phasers on pirate ship! Cadet Yariju saves the day bringing the phasers
of the Star online and taking tactical. The hit was good and took the pirates
by surprise, destroying one of their vessels.
"Just you wait! We'll be back and we've got friends," Captain Jesperald warns.
The Ensign fires again. A full spread of photon torpedoes erupts from Eagle.
He follows up with phaser fire.
"... many many friends and credits enough to buy any thing we need.
I curse you and all your progeny until the 3rd generation!!! " he vows a
curse and makes a strange sign, mostly likely from some ancient spell. He
smiles very wickedly and cuts the comms.
Instead of firing on the Eagle and finishing her off, the two remaining Orion
pirate warships jump to warp. One of them of course carries the stolen jewel.
