Kraken Squadron vs. Round 5!
Project Voyager's LDM staff (Connor, Jacqueline, Brittney, Jon) were up shortly after the crack of dawn today to prep the Magellan Simulator at the CMSEC for the arrival of the notorious Kraken Squadron. It was their date with destiny. It was Kraken vs. the soul destroying fifth round of this year's Long Duration Mission.
This legendary team came with a strategy in mind, the details of which I'm not at liberty to reveal because the Nautilus Squadron hasn't face the pressure of round 5 yet. They took 45 minutes fine tuning their solution. They, like all the other LDM squadrons, ended their last round in a pickle. Their flag ship Magellan was deep in Romulan space, marooned with no hope of rescue, light years from a friendly Federation port. What happened over the next two hours would turn your blood cold. If today's mission was turned into a movie, you'd end up on the floor hiding behind the theater seats afraid to look.
What was Noah afraid of? What was he aiming at? What was he frantically trying to do in his final last moments?
Is the first officer asleep or is he just lazy? Perhaps it's neither.
Kraken locked away in the Brig or maybe a thought out tactic to confuse those who didn't belong.
Taunting, or being taunted? Running out of air? It would seem so based on the picture above. Will we ever see Kraken again? Please, a moment of silence for a team so loved and so far far away.
"We took a licken but we keep on ticken," said Christine Grosland, Kraken coach, after their mission.
