Captain Azanialix Ja'arda existed her ready room and walked onto the bridge. She looked around, and could sense . . . no, she could feel the tension rising among the crew. The tension wasn't with each other, but due to the situation going on . . . the distress call, which they were responding to.

"Status report," she requested, hoping to get the details quickly.

"We're in route now," Commander Mason reported as he got up from the center chair and moved over. "The Brilliant Star has been attacked by pirates."

"Pirates?" she parroted, finding this odd. Of course, there were rogue groups that traveled all throughout space, including the infamous Maquis, that raided ships to try and steal valuable items to trade.

"Yes, sir," he responded.

She thought about it for a moment as she sat down within the Captain's chair. Taylor had mentioned that this was a civilian ship when he had requested her presence on the bridge. Pirates normally never attacked civilian ships, unless there was someone important on board. There just wasn't any profit in it for them otherwise. Maybe a bit of Latinum, but nothing significant.

Looking over to the Operations officer, she requested, "See if you can get a manifest of all the passengers and crew on board the Brilliant Star."

She then turned to Ebak, her long-time trusted Security officer, and recommended, "See if you can formulate some rescue plans. The pirates are going to get agitated once we arrive in the system, so getting the civilians off is going to be difficult. I want to get as many of them out of there as possible without any casualties."

Pressing a button on the arm of her chair, she then proceeded, "Sickbay, we're going to be rescuing civilians. Be prepared to treat any injuries or casualties. Science, I want you to oversee the sensors, and try to identify each of the civilians on board the ship. Engineering, we're going to need additional power . . . as much as you can spare. We're likely to get into a fight with the pirates, and I want to make sure that the new ship can handle it."

Her mind started thinking, since it'd still take a while before they could intercept the Brilliant Star. By the time they got there, chances were, it was going to be taken over by the pirates. "Commander, contact the Brilliant Star. I've got an idea, and I want you to oversee it with the Intelligence officer along with some of our Marines . . ."
