Outer Perseus Operation: The USS Swiftsure strikes one for the Alliance at the Battle of United Terra.
We left the USS Swiftsure warp-less, towed back to the wormhole by a mysterious alien ship called Wallibi Maku. What happened between this last report and the news reaching us today is nothing short of Outer Perseus history in the making. While underway for much needed repairs and, the Swiftsure crew was called upon to join the Carrier Group One at United Terra in Outer Perseus.
The summit for the Outer Perseus Alliance of Planets
There was held
a determining summit between the K’tan Empire, the Heropu, the Delusian
Empire and the reformed Xins. The order of the day was to debate the formation
of an interstellar Alliance in order to face the powerful, belligerent
Kells with a common front.
The Battle of United Terra
As a powerful Kell
battle cruiser was discovered heading for the planet, undaunted by the
sizeable opposition that would met it there, their hidden base on United
Terra deployed its ground troops for a sweeping assault against the ceremony
attendees and Federation security forces.

Physicists at Starfleet Headquarters frown heavily at the process which is, by all accounts, not to be used lightly or as a standard procedure. As a Tactical officer was heard to quip in its hallways “someone’s been keeping up with their technical reading”. Rumour has it that the Chapman maneuver wrote a page in the book of 25th century tactical weapons. The more final blow of all however may well be the one the Kells brought upon themselves. The direct confrontation all but reinforced the determination of the six governments to ratify the Alliance treaty.
