Mission Summary

Niron 5 is, for the most part, a highly advanced and well ordered society. However, a politically volatile faction, the "White hand" is causing unrest and preventing the Nironeese form becoming full UFP members.

Even so, The Nironeese government recognizes the advantage of having Federation help them hold of the advancing Jenarri on their borders, so they offer the use of an advanced orbital shipyard for repairs, refit and R&R of crews. The USS Victory is sent to negotiate terms.

While there Cor is being given a tour of the facilities which is far advanced from anything he has seen, even in the Federation. While he is on the tour a White Hand operative detonates a device which kills the engineering team and nearly takes Cor with it.

The Orbital stabilizers are destroyed and the facility is beginning to loose stability. Projected crash site is the middle of a densely populated city. Cor and the rest of the crew are told by the locals they should evacuate to their ship, but Cor believes he may be able to stabilize the station.

They are blocked by armed security who will not let aliens into the site of a crime scene, for their own protection. This way there can be no suspicion of their involvement. UFP Diplomats agree that the best course of action is to just withdraw.

When they push, they are told, at gun point, that Aliens are not permitted to work on the Facility and a team of replacement engineers are en route (though their arrival time will be too late to save the station).

The crew must decide to either attack and force their way into the engineering bay in the hope that Cor can stabilize the station and save thousands, or abandon the station and leave it and the locals to die.

If they choose to force the issue, the Niponeese will thank them, and then inform them that there can no longer be any agreement between them as they cannot trust the Federation to respect their sovereignty.

If they do withdraw they watch the fiery death of thousands but the Niponeese are able to agree to terms, including accepting relief aide from arriving Federation ships.
