Newsfleet's Article of the Month
After the accidental discovery of the planet Myrecore, the USS Afton was dispatched to return to the system to launch a large-scale investigation of the system. In addition, they were to investigate the disappearance of a Tellarite science vessel in the same system.
Upon arrival, the crew first had to find a way to be able to keep in contact with Starfleet through the stealth field. Eventually they discovered that a narrow range of the electromagnetic spectrum was able to pass through the barrier. Therefore, the crew left a communication relay buoy outside the perimeter and subsequently entered the system.
Entering the system, the Afton began preliminary scans on Myrecore in order to locate the Tellarite science team. Soon after locating the wreckage of the Tellarite science ship, the Afton's crew detected bio signs near some escape pods. Dispatching a Search and Recovery runabout to the surface, the Afton came under fire from a previously undetected weapons system on the planet's surface. The Afton escaped from the weapon, and managed to get the Tellarites aboard with little incident, however as the ship was making its way to a safer distance, the weapon fired again and damaged the starboard warp nacelle.
Upon examination, the ship's medical staff were shocked to discover that the Tellarites had all been implanted with some kind of device in the brain. After a period of time, the device seemed to implant an alien personality over the Tellarite's original consciousness. The aliens claimed that they had gained the consent of the Tellarites in the interest of science. One of the alien consciousnesses came forward and claimed to be an ambassador for her people. Faced with a possible first contact situation, most of the crew were eager to talk with these aliens, however the fact that the Tellarite's personalities were not being allowed to come to the surface was worrying.
