The crew of Alexandria discover that a seemingly abandoned space station, has an interesting link to the past.
The USS Taurus has been a valuable addition to Alexandria's defence and we are very proud to have her under the care of Lieutenant Commander Sov Meriman. In tracing Alexandria's signals we encountered an unusual rise in background subspace radiation and had a positive match on a metallic signature, it appeared very suddenly on Alexandria's long range sensors.
We took the USS Taurus to investigate, the strange metallic signature seemed to be deep in the Sylleran Rift almost 4 Lightyears away from the station. What was strange that we had never detected the signature before this time as the area was covered by Alexandria's long range sensor array.
When we arrived, we discovered an old abandoned space station which appeared to have absolutely no signs of life. The station appeared to be emitting strange readings in both metagenic partical quality and subspace density. Commander Hoorenbeek and I both concluded that the station appeared to be "stuck" into a subspace sinkhole that would eventually pull it back into subspace. It was theorised that the whole station had somehow "emerged" from subspace.
Due to the interest gathered from a clearly human design and low risk assessment due to no lifeforms, we beamed aboard into there hangerbay which in turn set off some alarm that we were not aware of.
Somehow, our scans had been able to detect the lifeforms due to subspace interference. Both Commander Hoorenbeek and I were taken prisioner by a strange group of Melosians, Humans and some other races that we could not identify.
The Station crew took us to a briefing room after we convinced them that we were not a threat and informed us that their station was called E.S.S. 414, an old Earth Orbital Station from the later 2000's. The "Captain" introduced us to his crew allowing us to tell them about their station's fragile condition.
Due to their lack of sensor technology, we showed them our readings which indicated the entire station was stuck in some kind of subspace sinkhole that was pulling them into subspace and moving them across both great distances and and time. They were not aware about Starfleet or the Federation despite having advanced technology in other areas, they also seemed truely shocked to learn that they were in the Delta Quadrant and the year was 2386.
We offered them assistance in attempting to pull their station out of the subspace sinkhole to help prevent future jumps in time and space. After, a rather heated debate between the Captain and the rest of the crew, they agreed and allowed us to leave.
We will be returning to Alexandria to work on the problem before coming up with a solution.
