Pity Is Treason.
Outbreak - Following the Consortium uprising aboard the USS Black Hawk and narrowly averting the crisis at Gavara, the Black Hawk is escorted to Starbase Unity by the USS O’Carroll. Multiple debriefings are held, and the crew is allowed some time to relax and adjust to their unfortunate situation. For others, like Captain Geisler, this time is used to heal. The last few months have taken a toll on the crew, especially the ship’s Executive Officer, Commander Kos, who has taken medical leave to restore her mental state. A temporary Executive Officer is assigned in her place. But time is not on anyone’s side. The Consortium continues to manipulate the Gamma Quadrant and if there is any hope for Starfleet to regain control, Deep Space 11 must be retaken soon. The Black Hawk is therefore sent on a supply run to a loyal port of call in the Yolvanda system. Yolvanda II is the only Class-M planet in the binary star system. Prior to colonization by the Karemma, there was no record of life on the planet. Many from the Alpha Quadrant have nicknamed the planet “New Risa” due to its many exotic features and many an officer has taken shore leave on the planet. Captain Geisler even goes to far to extend their mission for a couple days so that the crew can enjoy a little R&R before reentering the fray at Starbase Unity. Shortly after arrival, however, many of the population in the city fall ill to a mysterious illness. It quickly spreads, infecting even those who beamed down from the Black Hawk. Can this fatal virus be stopped and its true origin revealed before Captain Geisler and his crew be blamed for the outbreak?
