Latest Arrivals

Originally published at: Latest Arrivals – Molten Aether News

Recently, reports came in of several clustered new arrivals having appeared on Soteria at the same time.  The spliced in people seemed to be from different realities.  In the confusion the distinct 3 groups attacked each other.  Solas Tempus dispatched forces immediately to the region, the newly contracted Indra Yamakage was initially dispatched to the scene, shortly after Commander Amber Cross arrived on scene to assist and coordinate.  Initially there was no hostile contact, however, it was soon realized that in the extreme confusion associated with the splice effect for new arrivals, shots were fired.  Several injuries were sustained.  In order to suppress any further violence, Commander Cross ordered fighters to be deployed from Nimbus and she was forced to fire upon hostile forces who refused to stand down.

Commander Cross along with Mr. Yamakage were able to secure the remaining two groups with a reasonable amount of hostility.  Medical evacuation vessels were dispatched to the scene as soon as it was deemed safe, one member of the newly spliced in groups was beamed directly to sickbay, as was Mr. Yamakage himself after sustained gunshot wounds to the chest and abdomen.  Both the new arrival, identified as Verniy, as Mr. Yamakage are no long in danger and expected to fully recover.  The other new arrivals are listed as being Zwei, Barfleur, and Teruzuki.  Social services has requested that the group be left alone for the time being, citing that it will make it easier for them to adjust to their new surroundings.

The medical evacuation vessels returned with several other injured parties, however, their status has yet to be released.  Reports from anonymous sources inside the medical facilities on Nimbus have suggested that some sort of extreme change to the physiology of one group of new arrivals has taken place, though the official stance from medical staff on Nimbus is that medical records are private and they will release no such information until it becomes necessary or appropriate.  It is, however, known that the medical staff has requested assistance from several different facilities, while the content of the requests is unknown, requests have been made to the Daystrom Institute, Vulcan Science Academy, the Starfleet Corp of Engineers, and Starfleet Medical.

Since the Daystrom Institute specializes in computer technology, cybernetics, and a number of other technological research fields it is possible some of the new arrivals have some issue related to some research being done. This could also coincide with why the Corp of Engineers might have been contacted as well.

This is the 2nd time in recent memory that a cluster of new arrivals has been sighted. Scientists studying the splice phenomena are concerned that this trend may constitute some kind of changing situation, though it is unclear what that may be. The Vulcan Science Academy has dispatched researchers to assist in studying the phenomena further, at this time it is unclear as to what, if anything, this escalation in arrivals may mean.
