StarSword had proposed a prompt to finish a storyline that Cryptic Studios started but never finished. Unsatisfied with the vague Word of God explanation of the current status of the Romulan Star Empire after the kidnapping of Empress Sela, he and worffan collaborated on a geopolitical/military thriller to formally end the storyline. Praetor Velal of the Romulan Star Empire contacts the Romulan Republic, asking for a summit to discuss an end to hostilities and recognition of the Republic’s right to exist. Berserk Button: D’trel’s pathological hatred of the Tal’Shiar tends to make her go on Roaring Rampages of Revenge at the mere mention of them in a positive light. First exploited, then subverted. Exploited by Colonel Merik, who intentionally provokes D’trel into Berserker mode by speaking fondly of two other Tal’Shiar, one of them being Hakeev. He was luring her in so he could trap and kill her, though he underestimated how much gun Velal had brought along. Subverted after Merik’s ship is disabled. He claims to have been one of the men who raped D’trel’s lover Adani to death, to get her to destroy his ship to deny intelligence to the Republic and Empire. It backfires: D’trel decides death by exploding starship is too good for him and Merik is taken alive. Among other things Tovan tr’Khev’s presence in some of D’trel’s past adventures is ignored in favor of him being assigned to Morgan’s ship, and it’s indicated that Morgan and D’trel didn’t know each other before this story despite both having lived on Virinat. Call Back: The Romulan Star Empire apparently fell into chaos (again) with the revelations that the Tal’Shiar were responsible for Hobus (missions «Revelation» and «Taris») and Empress Sela’s kidnapping by the Iconians (mission «Cutting the Cord»). Velal only recently restored order. There’s roundabout explanations of Velal’s backstory as the Romulan general who turned up in a couple episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Among other things the destruction of the Romulan flagship IRW D’ridthau at Cardassia is mentioned (the Aen’rhien, then an Imperial ship, apparently rescued the surviving crew). The ch’R Maens detects a tachyon burst, which in Red Fire, Red Planet was a sign of a cloaked warship dropping to sublight. The Cameo: Brokosh (and Meromi Riyal, described but unnamed) from Red Fire, Red Planet and Koren from the canon game arrive at the end. The Cavalry: Merik suckers D’trel and things look grim. Then Velal’s flagship, which had previously only been mentioned by name, decloaks. It’s a Scimitar class. Also subverted. The Klingon Sixth Fleet that had been mentioned to be on its way turns up right after the battle. Best replica handbags Starfleet and Republic reinforcements never even get there. The Dead Have Names: At the Fade to Black, Morgan reads off the names of all the crewmen, Republic and Imperial, who died in the fight against the Tal’Shiar.
Designer Replica https://www.aaareplicasbag.com Bags A beautifully restored 18th century rural estate set in resplendent and verdant grounds, amid orchards, fields and mountains. The house, with its calming neutral interiors, stone and marble floors, and old oak beams and bamboo lined ceilings, has a distinctly cosy feel. Four poster beds, mellow lighting, comfortable armchairs and soft textiles and rugs add to the peaceful ambiance. There’s also relaxed dining on the shaded terrace overlooking the rolling countryside. These mud brick mansions with their leafy courtyards create mini oases in the dense Medina. Their design originates in the Roman city of Volubilis although their exuberant styling borrows much from Andalucia. Metre thick walls cut off the street noise leaving just the burbling of the fountain and chatter of songbirds. The best riads are both marvels of Marrakshi craftsmanship incorporating jewel like zellij (mosaic), lacelike stuccowork and painted cedarwood ceilings and unforgettable experiences of Marrakshi hospitality, including multi course Moroccan feasts and hothouse hammam treatments.
