UCD-D Cordiea - Second Fleet
This is Vice Admiral Markenstan reporting. Under direct orders via Admiral Kaliunea, Phoenicia broke off from the Seventh Fleet much to the dissuading of Admiral Dalzec to pursue an unidentified jump signature near the Triangulum Cluster. The Destroyers Osmosis and the Veridian, along with the majority of the second remained behind to support the Seventh Fleet while they carried out there assigned objectives, wile I and my ship UCD-D Cordiea, the Frigate Kalfirka, the Corvettes Yirlixx, Izikiliku, and lumin along with a hand full of cruisers, the Kiro and Zidan among them; accompanied the Phoenicia to the Triangulum Cluster. We traced the Unknown jump signature to a massive gravity well near Triangulum ECL-3. Our investigation lead us to a black hole, the Admiral, unwilling to cease her pursuit she ignored my recommendation to desist of this Unknown and activated the IUJG. The black holes gravity well should have prevented our vessels from slipping into deep space, even with the IUJG, I'm uncertain of what exactly followed but the result was our arrival in an Unknown Nebula cloud. Scanners and sensors could not identify our location. Again Ignoring my recommendations Kaliunea broke up our small force into two and had us blindly drift through the nebula in pursuit the Unknown signature. At 32:69 we lost contact with the Phoenicia, Kalfirka, Izikiliku and three of our cruisers. Our fighter wings were dispatched to locate out missing vessels. During this time we encounter a massive warship, unknown class. It somehow had already been designated, the Shivoza. The warship opened fire on us, we played defense and the vessel moved away from us with little friction. In the best interests of my crew and the members aboard my accompanying warships we did not pursue the Shivoza. At this time we doubled back in the direction we had came from and encountered another unknown craft, designated the UNSC Almeneck. Communications with the vessel revealed it to be of terrain design unlike the previous warship. The crew aboard the ship were attempting the execute a reverse jump, one they performed successfully I hope as they presumably exited the nebula. We continued our search for our missing vessels and managed to pick up multiple if not all of the Phoenicia specialist fighter wings; Shadow, Kasinova, Fire-Reach, Specter, just to name a few. We maintained out heading which leads us to where we are now. We have recovered Phoenicia Control and the Izikiliku. Nearby debris in the area revealed the destruction of our cruisers and frigate. Shadow docked with the Phoenicia and ascertained the current situation on board. Commander Grainenr has assumed control of the warship and from his account there group was engaged by a warship designated Certhiidae. It obliterated the Kalfirka, and crippled the Phoenicia. Its a wonder the warship survived considering its fragile frame. The warships bridge was lost along with it presumably Admiral Kaliunea. Because of this I am assuming temporary control of the second fleet. Commander Grainenr has re-routed the ships overhead controls to engineering. Something that has been done before apparently. I plan to initiate a jump out of this nebula with the IUJG at 33:40. This communication should be arriving at the time of our attempted jump. We will consolidate with you once we have returned to allied space. Until then Vice Admiral Markenstan Signing off.
