Now to face the consequences

Posted on Tue Sep 4th, 2012 @ 1:27am by Legate Vadrek

Bad news! A Starfleet officer has been rescued from a Cardassian facility. I’m sure his or her family will be pleased at the news but I can not be. Presumably the officer is Commander Lam. It would have been better had she never surfaced. Now I have to face the fall-out.

Details are sketchy but my contacts suggest that Gul Keshac was somehow involved. That comes as no surprise. I have suspected so all along. They also speak – and this is where it gets intriguing – of some sort of winged apparition which appeared as she was being rescued. I hope this is just radiation sickness talking. Apparently the facility was leaking radiation at an alarming rate.

I might have to return to Cardassia Prime to get more detailed information for myself but I hope it doesn’t come to that. I’d prefer to be here when Lam returns. That way, I can see and hear for myself what happened.

That way, too, I can hope to deflect some of the diplomatic flack that is bound to arise before it snowballs. If it’s left to Cardassia to deal with it we’ll have Starfleet breathing down our necks for the next decade.

That, I do not want.
