Mission Summary

KEY NPCS & CHARACTERS:
Lady Donatella Hortensia (in Guest Stars page) - NPC'd by the gracious Kristi
Hamilton Broll (in Guest Stars page)

Queen Sarissa - Ruler of Paratus IV; this world is a matriarchal society on the cusp of Federation membership
Duke Alonso - Sarissa's brother, exiled, with a semi-legitimate claim on the throne


GENERAL MISSION NOTES
The Athena is dispatched as escort for the Federation transport ship SS Glory, en route to the Paratus star system. The ship is carrying Lady Donatella Hortensia, the Ambassador, with her young aide Hamilton Broll. The Ambassador is incredibly demanding and diva-like, her requests grating on the crew.

On arrival at Paratus, the ships are suddenly ambushed by small ships - no real match for the Athena, but will cause severe damage to the Glory. The Ambassador, although alive, is in a coma. Her inexperienced aide is the only other ambassadorial representative nearby.

We then have a chance to focus on a couple of areas (crew can take their pick):
1) Investigate the attackers
2) Continue the diplomacy

As the mission progresses, we will have a conundrum: Queen Sarissa's regime isn't what we would call 'fair' and 'equal' - males are viewed as second-class citizens generally, however supporters of Duke Alonso's attempts at reform have started to grow more violent and confrontational (hence his exile). Both sides will ask for help in pushing their own agendas forward.
We'll have to deal with the fallout of the situation and work out what to do - should the accession to the Federation continue? Where does the Prime Directive sit within this? Things we can explore as we go through!


*UPDATE 15/5:
- The crew will save the male Paratans under Alonso using the SS Glory as a way of sneaking them out of harms way without causing an incident.
- This will set up a tense showdown with the Paratan Queen and her forces, who seeing the rebels escape will take the landing party 'hostage' until the rebels are dealt with.
