Sojourner: Battle Near Icari

Captain's Log, Stardate 87877.66: Enroute to the Ra'kholh System, we received a distress call from the U.S.S. Monmouth, under attack by a mixed squadron of Romulan vessels. Though not strictly a combat vessel, Sojourner and her crew are equipped to bring considerable weaponry and advanced ship systems to bear in support of a deep space battle. We were joined in the battle by the escort U.S.S. Tirpitz, captained by Judon Ruz.

Upon approaching the beleaguered Monmouth, we detected six Romulan vessels: three birds-of-prey, two Mogai-class escorts and a D'deridex-class warbird.

Tirpitz ably provided cover fire, while we worked to weaken their defenses and contribute to the fight ourselves.  All three Starfleet vessels suffered damage, especially Monmouth. We destroyed the warbird, one escort, and two birds-of-prey, before the remaining two ships cloaked and warped away from the system.
I am noting commendations in the service records of my crew, particularly Lieutenant Commanders Ymiro Larrea and Shintarah zh'Rithsiria, for their actions coordinating the Science and Tactical departments during the encounter.

OOC: I was caught up in a deep space encounter (one of the more annoying things about traveling through the sector map) and noted that my fellow blogger and and fleetmate, captainruz, had joined me. So I snapped a couple pics for a vignette. There was another player in the encounter, but I didn't note the cruiser's name and made one up.

  1. Nice, Ruz just posted his take on this event, so it was interesting to compare the two!
