Location: USS Independence
“The Odinskus ship is breaking orbit,” Kevin announced from the Tactical Console on the Bridge of the Independence.
The Storhatten of the Odinskus had informed the Ambassador and Captain of the decision of the Council of Jarls to proceed to Starbase 10 for formal negotiations. Simulations run by the Lieutenant O’Connell and the Engineering department had revealed that the most effective way to shorten the journey back to Starbase 10 would be for the Odinskus to generate their own warp field and use the Independence’s warp field generators to strengthen the field surrounding the Odinskus ship.
For that, the Odinskus would need to get their ship up to the speed that would allow them to generate their warp field and, because extending the warp field would limit the ability to maneuver, align themselves in the direction of Starbase 10 before the Independence extended its warp field. The plan was to meet up at the edge of the solar system.
"Lets get them to Starbase 10, one they are at warp we'll generate our own warp field and get them there faster. Make it so and engage," Mystery said.
"Aye, ma'am," Lieutenant Maida acknowledged from the helm, "Course laid in and engaging at full impulse."
The Odinskus were expected to need a little over 25 hours to reach the rendezvous point so the crew had a little time on their hands.
