Once again, it has been brought to my attention that the general outline for this mission is not known. So, thank you to all that have done their best with what little I have given. Following is the original outline with mission objectives that was initially discussed. The Romulans are not included in this as that was a plot twist that came into being later.

If you don't read the overview, at least scroll down past it for my apology to everyone.

Following the asssassination of President V'h'allmrool Demotillius J'cem, the Rhedoolian Confederation has undergone a partial collapse.

A polity composed of several systems at the edge of Federation and Romulan space, the RC is composed of two member races the Ch'intillia and Oomo-ria. When the Romulans had discovered the two races co-existing side by side rather peacefully, the Romulans installed a client regime based around the minority Oomo-ria group, who were deemed to be more acceptable than the Ch'intillia. After years of suffering under the minority Oomo-ria client government, the Ch'intillia rebelled and drove the ruling clique our of the Rhedoolian Confederation. Having installed himself at the head of an ethnically Ch'intillian government, President V'h'rellrool Gaiende K'tiem conducted pogroms against the remaining Oomo-ria over the ensuing decade. The end result was that they were driven out as refugees to neighbouring planets in the Romulan Empire. In 2345 V'h'allmrool Demotillius J'cem ousted K'tiem in a coup d'etat and installed himself as President. His rule led to an unprecedented degree of stability for the polity, but the seeds of discord were sown by the earlier flight of the Oomo-ria. Unwelcome in the Romulan Star Empire, and fuelled by the continued oppression of their fellow-beings in the RC, the Oomo-ria diaspora formed themselves in to the Rhedoolian Citizens' Front. The RCF proved more than a match, politically and militarily for the Romulan-back Rhedoolian Government Forces (RGF). By 2385, ground down by the advancing rebels, and adverse interstellar opinion, President V'h'allmrool Demotillius J'cem agreed to begin an on again, off again negotiation process with the RCF.

Following an unidentified attack on the Presidential Starship Jewel of Rhedool, the negotiations broke down as the majority Ch'intiliians, backed by extremists (driven by fears of a return to minority rule under the Oomo-ria) began a genocidal pogrom to eliminate all the Oomo-ria left in the Rhedoolian Confederation before driving the RCF out. The RCF used the opportunity of J'cem's death to gain more territory in the hopes of tipping the balance of power in the region.

In the midst of this are a number of Federation citizens working with NGO's to distribute foodstuffs and medicines to the already devastated polity. Some have gone missing, and others are isolated from any Federation or Starfleet assistance at the present time. ?The USS Diocletian was present in the RC when hostilities broke out, and no contact has been received from the Miranda-class vessel for several days.

In response to the worsening situation, the Federation Council, working alongside the President, ordered the creation of the Starfleet Mission to Rhedool, comprised of the USS Shanghai and USS Ticonderoga with the objectives of:

1. Securing Federation Citizens and Starfleet Personnel
2. Secure the peace around the capital planet Rhedool (site of the latest fighting)
3. Distribute aid to the civilian population.
4. Seek a negotiated settlement to the fighting


So there are the important things. If you aren't in a post at the moment, start one with your team/friends/roomates. If you are a Marine, go to the refugee camps to check up on the doctors. Doctors, I'm sure you left supplies you need on the ships. Go talk to Commander Sun. She's lonely on the bridge. Engineering, you have a ship to keep in one piece.


And to everyone, I'm sorry. I am always antsy when the post counts are this low. It reflects badly on me as a person and as your CO. I apologize, and I will remember this in the future. This just shows how much my personal feelings are tied to this game. Well, that's a mixed blessing, and that's the wrong thing to do at the moment (posting about activity when I'm behind as well). So please accept my deep apologies. I am truly sorry.

So, let's get this show on the road and turn this around! I'm excited, I hope you are too!

Relau Chlan, CO
