War & Peacekeeping
The USS Astraea has been tasked with delivering the Political delegates from Trion 8 from Starbase 357 to their home colony on Trion 8. Travelling in conjunction with the USS Zendaya, who is carrying the Trion Isurgents, hell bent on destruction of the entire Trion Governmental System.
3 days into the journey the USS Zendaya suffers a catastrophic systems failure which renders the entire vessel out of service pending major repairs. The Astraea is ordered to rendezvous with the Zendaya to collect the remaining Trion delegates and return them all to their home.
Can the Astraea get all the Trion colonists back to their homes without civil war breaking out on the ship?

Master Chief Petty Officer Hans-Peter König
Far too often, various characters on a ship are somewhat complacent to the transgressions of others for the sake of just
advancing the plot and turn a blind eye to the weirdness of other characters. NOT THIS GUY! MCPO Konig is a beast in regards to
regulations and he is not to be tested or trifled with. Well done.

Lieutenant Aleksander Voroshilov
Outstanding Performance with a total of 21 posts for the month of July.

Lieutenant William Rogers
For always being friendly and great to write with!

Sim Status, Updates and Additional Comments:
Mission Updates for August:
July found Astraea in full swing of the current mission. With both the official Trion government delegates aboard as well as an assembly of members from the TLF (Trion Liberation Front) tempers and tensions have been high aboard the ship, resulting in a bar fight breaking out with several members of the Astraea caught in the middle.
When the security advisor for the Trion Government is found dead (presumably murdered) in his quarters aboard the ship,
blame is almost immediately directed toward the TLF, but were they really responsible for this violent act?
The discovery of a second body, this time a member of the TLF leaves the impression of an act of retaliation.
Can the crew of the Astraea get to the bottom of this before full scale war breaks out aboard the ship?
With less than two days of travel time remaining before they reach Trion, will the crew of the Astraea find out what really
Even if they do get the answers they need, is there anything the Astraea can do without damaging the Federations reputation?
Stay tuned next month to find out!

This commendation recognizes a silent achiever who has maintained significant contributions to the story, without necessarily contributing an excess of posts. Quality, over quantity
