NF #03 Cover

  • Stardate 50926.1
  • Released August 1997

Roll call: The crew of the U.S.S. Excalibur:

Dr. Selar: The Excalibur‘s Vulcan doctor is all business. If you want to know what’s wrong with you, she’s the one to go to, but not if you’re expecting someone to hold your hand. As calm and logical as the rest of her people, Dr. Selar has a secret as shocking to her as it will be to the rest of the crew.

Si Cwan: A prince exiled from the Thallonian Empire, he is beloved by some and targeted for death by others. But Si Cwan has his own agenda: a search for the one woman who means the world to him.

Zak Kebron: The bronze-skinned Brikar is the security chief of the Excalibur. When he walks, the decks shake, and if he’s coming your way, you’d better pray that you’re on his good side.

Two mysteries vie for the attention of the crew of the Excalibur: Is the hospitality of the people of Nelkar too good to be true? And does a stranded spaceship truly hold the object of Si Cwan’s quest . . . or is it instead an all-too-deadly trap?

The U.S.S. Excalibur was under attack . . .

Captain’s Log, Stardate 50926.1—Captain Mackenzie Calhoun recording. The Excalibur has been endeavoring to provide humanitarian aid to the stranded vessel Cambon and its four dozen passengers presently in sickbay. However, we now find ourselves face to face with an unexpected intruder, who has opened fire on us.

First Officer’s Log, Stardate 50926.1—Commander Elizabeth Shelby recording. Our attempt to effect repairs on a stranded private crew ship, the Cambon, populated by refugees from the fallen Thallonian government, has been interrupted by the appearance of an unknown vessel, which is reacting in a hostile manner to what is undoubtedly perceived as our trespass. Ideally, Captain Calhoun should be able to handle this matter in a calm and reasonable manner . . .
