Good morning everyone.
Time is a rare commodity at the moment so lets get into it. Welcome to your official mission briefing. Some of the information in this briefing has been made public but please observe Starfleet information security regulations and do not discuss the contents of this briefing with any non-cleared personnel.
As I’m sure you’re aware the Hobus star will go supernova in the near future. It could be days, weeks, or months; but when it does, make no mistake it will be catastrophic. Supernova usually do not pose an immediate threat outside of their planetary system but this appears to be a unique case. The Hobus system is experiencing unusual subspace activity and distortions. When the star goes supernova we expect the explosion to breach the subspace barrier. When the subspace barrier is breached simulations indicate that it will produce a subspace shock-wave which could traverse space at warp speeds.
In order to give you an idea of what we’re up against, we’re granting officers and crews access to footage and telemetry from USS Excelsior during the Praxis Incident.
What you just saw was a subspace shockwave generated from the detonation of a dilithium-rich moon. The energy potential of the Praxis moon is minuscule when compared to the Hobus star. It will vaporize everything for light-years.
The USS Copernicus discovered the subspace activity and is monitoring the situation along with Science Station Delta-05 on the Federation side of the neutral zone. At this time we do not know the cause of the unusual subspace activity and are collaborating with the Romulan government.
Your mission is to prepare for and enact Plan B should the worst case scenario occur. We are constructing a massive humanitarian armada to evacuate anyone in its path should Hobus go nova and threaten neighboring star systems. We’re equipping or refitting all ships with third generation warp drives should you need to outrun the shockwave.
Provide assistance where needed, uphold your oaths as members of Starfleet, and embody the values that formed this Federation.
Report to your posts.
Good luck to you all and godspeed.
