Battle on the Bridge
Tensions have been high between the remaining Pegh representatives and Starfleet. The Pegh blame Fleet Captain Poison Toocool for M’Reh’s banishment from the Council and Astraios. This latest attempt to enter the Astraios system was foiled by the Argonaut, which, in spite of heavy damage, lost no crew in the exchange. Sources say a battle cruiser was destroyed and the remainder of the Klingon boarding party was captured by security before they could infiltrate any other sensitive areas of the intrepid class vessel.
In a brief statement, Toocool commended Commander Genny7 Markus and the Argonaut crew for their actions. “Make no mistake,” Toocool added, “the Argonaut only fired when fired upon. If they had not acted quickly, the consequences for Astraios Prime could have been severe.” Although she would not answer any further questions, it is suspected that the Klingon Vessel was preparing to fire an isolytic burst, which could have destroyed the entire Astraios system. The leader of the Astraionian Civilian Authority, Mr Lazuli Pookara, spoke in high praise for Starfleet and their continued efforts to protect Astraios prime and the Astraionian people. The attack and its aftermath will be the subject of a talk at the next Council meeting on Tuesday, he added. AC Skynews will be there to bring you all the latest.
