'Eos' Recap:

The Phoenix arrived at Eos Station to deliver the Thraceium Ore that the crew of the Falcon had originally stolen - setting their life-changing events in motion. With Commodore Munro in tow, the crew explored the Recreational Facilities of the freshly constructed - and somewhat mysterious - science station within the Telosian Expanse. Before too long, the station was put on minor alert. Briefed by a succinct and blunt Admiral Joel Grayson, Harper and his crew were immediately put back on task. The FCS Causeway, carrying a second shipment of the Thraceium ore, had vanished near The Maelstrom - a nearby extremely volatile region of space (originally visited in Part 2 of the Star Trek: Asteroid Field finale).

The Phoenix reaches The Maelstrom - with some prior deliberations on who should be their new pilot, with Harper himself taking the Conn this time out - but the Causeway is nowhere in sight. A distorted signal is eminating from the outer belt of the chaotic cluster of plasma storms and violent EM flares. With a number of engineering and shield modifications in place thanks to Carr, Brooks and Gork, Harper navigated the Phoenix within. Brooks alerted his Captain - and helmsman - to an imminent collision warning. Harper abruptly changed course but the Phoenix was suddenly caught in a web of graviton beams holding the ship in place.

Out of the inner Maelstrom, a large alien cruiser came in to view. Declaring themselves part of "The Vexgati Syndicate," the unfamiliar hosts claimed the Causeway and its contents as their own bounty - but offered to trade for anything of greater value. Having deemed Gork not of such value, the Vexgati cruiser set about draining the Phoenix's shields, putting her at the mercy of the Maelstrom's violent forces which were already threatening the hull of the ship.

However, assistance came in an unlikely form. Seven small Romulan ships decloaked in close proximity to the Phoenix and immediatley set about swarming the Vexgati vessel, drawing its fire and draining its own shields while being too small and maneuvering to be struck by return fire. Brooks and Harper devised a method out of their imprisonment - a short warp burst which the Phoenix should be able to sustain. With the Vexgati distracted, the Phoenix jumped to warp, dropping to sublight at the edge of the Maelstrom but with severe structual damage to the aft section. Gork - manning Engineering - was able to secure the aft section before it threatened to depressurise the rest of the ship.

The Romulan vessels emerged from the Maelstrom with the critically damaged Causeway in tow. It's weak survivors were beamed to Sickbay and the still-unidentified Romulans beamed the shipment of ore that had been stolen aboard the Phoenix. They cloaked and left the scene, without identifying themselves and with the fate of the Vexgati ship unknown.

WIth contact with Eos restored, Admiral Grayson ordered the Phoenix back to base for immediate debrief...
