Legacy of Romulus – Keeping up with the Cardassians

I used Grammarly to grammar check this post because when fighting the Cardassians, the Gemaen Nnharai (Mind Flayer in your language) took some damage to the computer systems and my normal systems I use were offline. On orders from Subcommander Nadel, we traveled to the Klingon and Federation Neutral Zone. Romulan Republic ships had gone missing, and we set out to discover why. What we found was no surprise to us. Empress Sela has stirred up the True Way into doing her own dirty work for her. She’s convinced them we are a threat to them. This is true in a sense, because they attacked us, and we destroyed them. Foolish, anyone who believes the Tal Shiar’s lies. Perhaps then we too are fools. Charva contacted us with information about Rinna, saying she would be transferred by the Tal Shiar to a penal colony. However, when we got there, all we found were some true way ships guarding a convoy of freighters. We fought our way past the escorts and disabled the freighters and beamed aboard to find Rinna, if she was indeed aboard one of them. screenshot_2013-07-31-19-52-21 On the first freighter, we found only supplies, no prisoners of any kind. There was some resistance, but nothing that we couldn’t handle. We set the ship to self destruct to cover our tracks.  It already felt wrong, and the lack of evidence of prisoners was disheartening, but we beamed aboard the next freighter.

Legacy of Romulus – Mindful

screenshot_2013-06-22-09-03-11 My last mission gave me a whole lot to think about. I decided to spend some time in the ships garden, working on some plants I’ve been raising, samples from Mol’Rihan. The goal is to find the best nutrients to help them grow faster to grow them in crops. While I scanned the plants and collected data, I considered the events after beaming up from Chalok. (No pictures, one of the Hirogen damaged the camera, and the data was lost. Viril fixed it for me, thankfully.) Charva, someone I knew from my enslavement, and once strong friend of Tovan, appeared in her ship to speak to us, wearing the banner of the Tal Shiar. The tension on the bridge was think as jungle vines. But she gave me pause, and something to investigate. I’m unsure what I will find. After she left, Tovan also gave me pause when he mentioned, perhaps with specific intentions, that some people use D’Tan’s Republic as a means to exact revenge against the Tal Shiar, for personal reasons. Yes, we fight as we must, D’Tan won’t deny that, but is it possible that I am using the Republic to my own ends, to pour out my anger against the Tal Shiar? Or am I only doing what I must? Perhaps my actions will be the judge. Such as leaving Lortrix to die. I am a killer, there is no question, but do I go too far? But Lortrix also have me something to think about.   screenshot_2013-06-22-09-05-31   Something strange happened to me while fighting Lortrix, he performed a psychic attack on me. Something many Remans can do. It was not something I was able to do before, but as his mind attacked mine, something changed in me. My own mind reacted, blasting out in retaliation. The doctor aboard the Gemaen Nnharai (Mind Flayer in your language) performed some tests and confirmed that some of my memory engrams had been altered recently, as if something had been undone. Also other areas that were dormant activated at the same time. We suspect that when I was enslaved, just as my name was taken from me, perhaps they also locked off this portion of the mind, and now it has been reactivated. This day has given me many things to think on, and new ways for my mind to engage the world around me.

Legacy of Romulus – Times of Trouble and Decision

screenshot_2013-06-10-18-25-23   Went to the Khitomer Talks in an effort to help the Romulan Republic claim Dewa III as a new homeworld. I got new eye gear, but I decided after getting some odd looks from the first Klingons I talked to that I should not wear them here. At least he seemed receptive to Romulans. Others I overheard also had some positive things to say, while others held outright disdain for us. At first I was a little upset, angry really, but then I realized that perhaps they had personal stories of Romulans causing them harm. I heard in their voices things I have said about the Tal Shiar. We just have to show that we and the Tal Shiar are not the same.
