Artemis 1701 8/18/11
Capt. FutileChas Log Entry, 1st Engagement
The Artemis 1701 has just completed weapons storage upgrades implemented by Cmdr. Arch, and successfully delivered supplies to the Deneb 1 station. Artemis 1701 has been mandated to search the Deneb 3 sector, and the last known position of the Aegis. Upon successful jump to the Deneb 3 sector I ordered science and comm to scan and attempt to contact the Regis. No response from the Aegis, science reports several armadas in route to each station, at 22:00 hours I ordered all stations to red alert and ordered helm to intercept armada approaching DS3. Helm moved the Artemis 1701 into attack position, I ordered type 6 mines into tubes 1 and 2 and ordered crew ready for attack pattern Echo. Ship and crew readied for engagement as weapons and engineer reported full systems failure, I ordered helm to hold relative position behind enemy armada while systems came back online. At this time I realized the improbablity of Artemis saving all the Deneb stations. Comms ordered all stations to build type 6 mines and nuclear ordnance. All systems reported online and ready for attack, our first engagement, type 6 attack on enemies port side the Artemis approached from behind and caught the enemy by complete suprise. Shields to Torgoth battleship took significant damage all others nominal, I ordered nuclear ordnance loaded and move to position for Delta 2 nuclear strike, helm navigated to port to gain distance and position. Deployed nuclear weapons, destruction of 2 enemy vessels and significant damage to remainder of armada. Loaded for type 6 Echo attack and engaged, minimal effect, loaded type 6 and maneuvered hard to starboard and ordered Alpha attack warp 2, 1 mine hit 1 missed destroying enemy battleship. Helm swung hard to port, weapons loaded fot type 6. Enemy armada turned to port to pursue, helm lowered engines to hold position luring enemy fleet into undetonated mine. Mine detonated, minimal effect on enemies shields, Artemis shields at zero. Loaded type 6 , hard to starboard engage Echo attack, Artemis took minor damage to shield generators and primary beams. Both mines missed their mark, then ordered for Delta 2 nuclear strike, torpedoes away then loaded homing torps, 1 Dreadnaught destroyed Aft shield failure to Torgoth battleship. Moved into position for homing torpedoes navigating around undetonated mines, helm reversed coarse to lure enemy into them, direct hit minimal damage, moved ship into position on weaker battleship. Dam con teams worked to restore systems and shields. Weapons fired multiple vollies on battleship, battleship destroyed. Torgoth battleship and Dreadnaught remain, Skaraan Executor decloaked 2,000 meters to stern. I ordered helm to set coarse for nearest base.
