240712.07 - Returning to Starbase 22, the Vindicator begins preparing for war.

240712.14 - Due to the war, the Vanguard have offered a temporary truce, freeing the Vindicator to go to Starbase 369 near the Gorn border to ascertain if it was still under Federation control, as contact had been lost.

240712.28 - The crew celebrates the holidays during the calm before the galactic storm of war.

2408

240801.12 - The crew of the Vindicator prepare for the worst and plan to retake Starbase 369 if needs be.

240802.10 - Underway to begin combat operations, the Vindicator encounters and disables a Krivaldie battleship and prepares to board it.

240802.17 - The Krivaldi battleship is beginning to destabilize, shortening the time the away teams have to secure it.

240803.01 - The away teams and marines rush to vacate the Krivaldi battleship before it loses containment and explodes.

240803.08 - The Vindicator arrives at SB 369 but the station's sensors identify the Vindicator as a Jem'Hadar attack ship and they open fire before realising the error. The base has been under siege for some time, and the Vindicator promises to offer any aid they can. The Dominion surround the ship and station and offer to allow the Vindicator to leave with the starbase's crew, leaving the strategically located station to the Vindicator.

240803.15 - Time goes by as the Vindicator has 12 hours to give the Dominion Vorta their answer to the offer.

240803.22 - The Vindicator refuses the offer and prepares to defend the station at all costs, and the Jem'Hadar and Krivaldi prepare an assault. The majority of the crew transfers to SB 369 to defend it while the Vindicator returns to SB 22 to get reinforcements.

240803.29 - The Dominion and Krivaldi begin their attack, managing to board the station despite a surprisingly effective EMP weapon neutralizing many of the attacking ships in the 1st wave.

240804.05 - The battle for Starbase 369 continues, the attacks coming in waves and the defenders giving ground bought with blood.

240804.12 - Two Starfleet squadrons, one lead by the USS Berkeley and Vindicator and the other by Rear Admiral Malone's group, converge on SB 369 to draw Dominion and Krivaldi fire from the station. The attackers adapt to the EMP weapon and renew their attacks, dwindling the station's ability to defend itself.

240804.19 - Battle continues, neither side gaining a clear advantage and loss of life is piling up on both sides.

240804.26 - 1st Dominion War-era Defiant-class ships are quickly brought into service, crewed mostly be Academy students, to assist with the battle for SB 369 and several more ships enter the fray in an attempt to defend the battered station and Vindicator.

240805.03 - The Starfleet ships take up a defensive formation around the starbase and repel more attacks, the USS DaVinci fighting it out with several Krivaldi ships before joining the defensive formation. In an attempt to detour another attack, the DaVinci hides in the surrounding asteroid field and sends asteroids at passing Jem'Hadar ships.

240805.10 - Desperation begins to take the defenders, with the crew of the USS Messier ramming a Dominion battleship after being beamed out by their wing mate USS Velocity, and Rear Admiral Malone's battlegroup approaches the system.

240805.17 - The Tiger-Claws group enters the system and deploys two battalions of marines to assume defence of the station, and the crew return to the Vindicator. The DaVinci joins the Tiger-Claw's fleet.

240805.24 - The Vindicator returns to Starbase 22 to undergo extensive repairs and personnel replacement due to the damage and casualties from defending Starbase 369.

240805.31 - The crew takes in some hard-earned downtime while the war continues on the front-lines.

240806.07 - While on a trip in a shuttle, Commodore Thompson and company come under attack, fighter response finding a Lysarian freighter nearby and they detain it, escorting it back to SB 22 while taking the shuttle back to the Vindicator.

240806.14 - With the Commodore rescued, the Vindicator is ordered to investigate a strange signal in the Tebrun system which had indicators of being a distress call.

240806.28 - Arriving in orbit of Tebrun III, the Vindicator prepares to send down an away team to investigate the source of the signal.

240807.05 - An away team beams down to the planet to investigate the source of the signal, but soon they realize they are being hunted by native predators.

240807.12 - The teams encounter the predators, unsure how to respond to their presence. Elsewhere, a Vorta contacts a Thaosian hunter.

240807.19 - Taking one of the beasts down, the away team finds a device on the creature which turns out to be a Dominion mind probe allowing them to use the animals as recon units.

240807.26 - The Thaosian hunter and company arrive and surround the away team, accusing them of trespassing. The predators attack, leading to a fire fight where the Jem'Hadar reinforce the Thaosians and capture the recon team.

240808.02 - While the captured away team contemplates a way to escape while they are subjected to a substance called Ketracel Blue, the Vindicator's CO decides to recover them from the Dominion, whether they are alive or dead. Extraction plans are put into place.

240808.09 - A strange virus begins to spread from Engineering and infects the crew, and the marines head back to the planet to search for the first away team and the crashed fighter. The signal that lured the Vindicator is still transmitting, and a Jem'Hadar attack ship comes up from the planet and disables the Vindicator's warp nacelles before flying off at warp.

240808.16 - The captured away team manage to escape, able to ambush a Jem'Hadar communications setup on their way out.

240808.23 - With the away team rescued, Beta Fleet sends a medical ship to assist the Vindicator with the affects of the Ketracel Blue as the ship was placed under biohazard quarantine. An antibody is found to cure the virus, however, and the Vindicator leaves for the Trilista Colony.

240808.30 - The Vindicator remains in orbit of Trilista while the crew copes with the events that occurred on Tebrun III.

240809.06 - With the quarantine lifted, the crew starts to return to routine.

240809.20 - It is discovered that the XO was subjected to Ketracel White in an effort to turn him to Dominion loyalties, leading to the belief that Dominion infiltrators may be aboard.

240810.11 - The crew directs their efforts to shore up the weaknesses to Dominion infiltration aboard the ship.

240810.18 - Still in orbit of Trilista, the crew searches for a cure for Ketracel Blue.

240810.25 - The crew finds a strange device attached to the computer core causing it to shut down. It is removed and other systems checked for similar devices.

240811.01 - The Vindicator returns to Starbase 22 where Commodore Thompson is promoted to Rear Admiral and given command of the station, while Captain Jorel Sorad and Lieutenant Horatio Preston assume command.

240811.08 - The change in command is made official, and the marine unit is transferred off the ship with the end of the war.

240811.15 - The USS Destiny reports a disabled Krivaldi ship, attacked by a race called the Vori, near the border and requests the Vindicator look into it.

240811.29 - Upon arrival in the Zyphris system, the Vindicator offers aid to the Krivaldi ship, which reluctantly accepts. The Vori ship that attacked the Krivaldi see this and assume the Vindicator is allied with their enemy, the Krivaldi.

240812.06 - While repairing their systems, Starfleet engineers covertly sneak a peak at Krivaldi files. After learning more on the Vori, Admiral Cerywyn berates Captain Sorad for assisting the enemy and possibly involving Starfleet in renewed hostilities. Indeed, Federation prisoners are discovered aboard the Krivaldi battleship.

240812.13 - The Vindicator beams it's away team and the prisoners back, inciting the Krivaldi to claim Starfleet has betrayed them and two more warships are en route to confront the Vindicator.

240812.20 - The Krivaldi reinforcements arrive and the Vindicator launches fighters and assumes battle stations.

240812.27 - Captain Sorad ignores suggestions to flee, instead the Vindicator engages and fights the Krivaldi warships which are more heavily armed than anticipated. A torpedo hit temporarily decompresses the bridge, causing Captain Sorad to be blown out into space. He is beamed to Sickbay while the XO orders the Vindicator to withdraw. The Vori warship moves in to assist against the Krivaldi.

2409

240901.10 - After refusing an order to surrender, the Vindicator is assisted by two Vori warships. They agree to an ad-hoc alliance with the Federation against the Krivaldi, brokered by Acting CO Lieutenant Commander Horatio Preston.

240901.17 - Beta Fleet sends support ships to bring the Vindicator back to Starbase Versailles, while the Krivaldi have boarded the Vindicator in Main Engineering, leading to a fierce battle to repel the boarders.

240901.24 - With Captain Sorad near death, the flight deck wrecked, warp drive inoperative and weapons all but gone, the crew focuses on repairing the essentials of Warp drive. They are then escorted to Versailles by the USS Liam and Emily.

240901.31 - The Vindicator returns to Versailles and begin repairs. Captain Sorad's condition is not improved and his family is contacted to determine if he is to be taken off life-support.

240902.07 - The crew takes in R&R and recovers from the battle and the change in command.

240902.14 - Repairs continue, and a slight problem with the substantially-rebuilt warp drive is reported.

240902.21 - As the ship prepares to get underway for warp trials, elsewhere the Vanguard are planning to reopen hostilities in the post-war setting.

240903.01 - The Vindicator departs, but before heading to the trial grounds condemning evidence is found that ACO Lieutenant Commander Preston has some illicit dealings with the Dominion, and is removed by Commander Alan Runt who assumes command.

240903.07 - During the warp drive tests, a failure occurs at high warp and causes several plasma conduits to blow out. Several Dominion-made bombs are found on the Flight Deck. The Vindicator comes to an all-stop to conduct damage control. Elsewhere, the Vanguard cunningly take control of the USS Crazy Horse.

240903.14 - The bombs on the Flight Deck are accidentally detonated, causing heavy damage to that section. The approach of the USS Crazy Horse is detected, oddly far out of it's patrol position. The Vanguard reveal they have taken the ship, and offer and exchange: the Horse crew for Preston and the Flight Deck saboteur.

240903.21 - The exchange takes place, followed by the Crazy Horse firing on the Vindicator then fleeing. The Vindicator gives chase to retake the Crazy Horse.

240903.28 - Vanguard operatives capture the USS Dogma, Hatcher and Sentinel and take them to the rendezvous point to assist the Crazy Horse. The Vindicator catches up with the Horse at Arelia IV and engage, able to penetrate their shields and send boarding parties from both the Horse and Vindicator crew to retake it.

240904.04 - The battle for the Crazy Horse continues, and the Starfleet boarders capture a key member of the Vanguard along Preston and many others, but casualties begin to mount on both sides as lethal force escalates.

240904.11 - As the battle seems all but won, fighters from the Vindicator encounter the small Vanguard fleet arriving to assist the Crazy Horse and they alert the Vindicator.

240904.18 - The arrival of the Vanguard reinforcements causes the Vindicator to withdraw, unable to reclaim the Crazy Horse so they fire several torpedoes at the shield-less hull and damage it beyond field repair before they depart. The Vindicator returns to Versailles with many Vanguard prisoners.

240904.25 - Returned to Versailles, the Vindicator loses it's fighter squadron to rotation, and the Flight Deck is rebuilt to accommodate a full Wing.

240905.02 - Awards Ceremony is held on the retired Marine Decks, after which work begins to replace them with extra Science Labs and a two-deck Hospital facility.

240905.09 - Upon request from the 2nd Marine Division CO, a mix-matched squadron of Marine fighters is transferred to the Vindicator.

240905.23 - While in dock and undergoing refit, the Vindicator begins to experience numerous malfunctions.

240905.30 - Final diagnostics and systems checks are conducted as the Vindicator prepares to depart Versailles.

240906.06 - With their cargo, one of the ringleaders of the Vanguard taken in the last mission, the Vindicator departs to drop him off with a prison transport before heading off to search of the other stolen ships.

240906.13 - The Vindicator suddenly encounters a wormhole that pulls them in and deposits them in the middle of an unfamiliar nebula. The Warp Core and main power is off-line, the ship is adrift. Their arrival was noted by someone else.

240906.20 - The CO, Commander Alan Runt, was incapacitated during the unexpected wormhole transit. Power is restored and propulsion brought back online, but sensors cannot penetrate the Mutara-class nebula and they are blind as well as lost.

240906.27 - The Hiigaran mining ship which saw the Vindicator arrive hides in the nebula and watches the strange ship.

240907.04 - Fighters are launched to give the Vindicator some vision, and sensors are restored enough to detect the Hiigaran ship.

240907.11 - First Contact is established and the Hiigaran CO comes aboard and offers to assist in adapting the Vindicator's systems to the Nebula, meanwhile the Hiigaran officers are fearful of the Starfleet ship and plan a mutiny to flee.

240907.18 - The Hiigaran technicians aboard the Vindicator assist in bringing the Warp Drive back online.

240907.25 - In Memorial, Admiral Alexandra Timmis.

240908.01 - The Hiigaran ship flees deep into the stormy heart of the nebula, leaving their CO and technicians behind. The Vindicator prepares to pursue at the behest of the Hiigaran CO, citing it was the Vindicator's presence which had led to this occurrence.

240908.08 - The Vindicator enters the storm at the heart of the nebula, searching with limited sensors for the Hiigaran ship. Elsewhere, a Marine fighter stumbles upon the wormhole and also falls through it, finding himself in the same nebula and sending a distress signal. The Vindicator abandons it's pursuit of the Hiigaran ship to answer the distress call.

240908.15 - The Hiigaran ship disappears into the very center of the nebula. The Vindicator rescues the marine pilot, who informs them that the Borg have invaded the Federation once more. The crew is now anxious to get home to join the defence, but the Hiigaran ship, the Anvil, comes barrelling out of the storm at the Vindicator.

240909.05 - The Hiigaran CO boards the Anvil with Starfleet Security, finding it seemingly empty of Hiigarans, but the away team encounter several beings who existed in a phased state and demand they leave. The search for the wormhole mouth yields little results.

240909.12 - The Hiigaran CO elects to remain behind as the away team leaves the Anvil, followed by energy beams grab a hold of and pull the Hiigaran ship back into the storm. The search for the wormhole starts to have promising leads.

240909.19 - The Vindicator is able to match the phase variance of the beings and open a 'phasic gateway,' and the XO takes a shuttle through to negotiate the release of the Hiigarans. The native beings agree on the condition the next trespassers will be destroyed.

240909.26 - With the wormhole mouth found, the crew say goodbye to the Hiigarans and prepare to return home.

240910.03 - The Vindicator returns to Beta Quadrant, too late to assist against the Borg and is ordered to Starbase 22 for a tactical refit, as the Border Defense Fleet is in ruin and rebuilding efforts is underway so there are some weapon components now available that were not before.

240910.10 - The Colonel James Archer rescued by the Vindicator decides to stay, and another squadron of fighters is assigned to the ship to make up a Wing. While the Vindicator undergoes a major tactical upgrade, with the destruction of so many ships freighters in the outer sectors become prey to increased pirate activity.

240910.17 - During the downtime, interdepartmental training begins in anti-bording scenarios. The Colony of Cestus III near the Gorn border begins to note the number of missing ships in their sector.

240910.24 - Two months have passed and the refit is complete. Commander Auryn Bishop and Lieutenant Commander Vokar are given command of the Vindicator and tasked with maintaining peace and stability in the Cestus Sector, beginning by investigating the missing freighters over the past several months.

240910.31 - Selelvian military raiders clash with Zaldan cruisers, who have been stepping up in the absence of Starfleet patrols to begin protecting the space lanes.

240911.07 - En route to Cestus III, the Vindicator rescues a survivor from a freighter attacked by the Selelvian raiders months ago. The Zaldans send a warship to Cestus III as well to petition the Federation representative there for action, and destroys a Selelvian ship along the way.

240911.14 - The Zaldan ship, Truth&Justice, arrives just before the Vindicator, which makes contact with the colonial governor for a status update.

240911.21 - A probe from the destroyed Selelvian ship is delivered to the Vindicator for analysis, and the CO meets with the Zaldan captain to discuss the what has happened, requesting that the Zaldans pull back until the Vindicator can assess the situation. Truth&Justice leaves to deliver the request. Then a Selelvian heavy cruiser arrives, the August Dawn, carrying an Admiral Gal'Vox who also meets with the CO and states his case.

240911.28 - Relief supplies are shuttled down to the planet at a central staging area just outside the capital, as fighters recon the surround region for the missing freighters. Commander Bishop awaits the Zaldans CO, Captain Dochan's return to commence with talks with Admiral Gal'vox.

240912.05 - After reporting the situation, Admiral Cerywyn diverts several starships to the area to give the Vindicator some leverage. The talks commence upon Dochan's return, but turn sour as the Zaldan temper flares and storms out. The Selelvian representative lets slip an ulterior motive here before also storming out.

240912.12 - The Selelvian fleet of over forty ships attacks, attempting to destroy the Vindicator and the colony in the hopes of starting a war they believe their people can win. The Truth&Justice escapes to get reinforcements, as the Vindicator and fighters are able to withstand the first wave of the assault. On the colony below, a crew of pirates attempts to steal the supplies that have been landed.

240912.19 - Using the devastating tactic of causing intentional warp core breaches in several of their smaller ships while at warp directed at the Vindicator, the Selelvians manage to disable the Vindicator, but the Zaldan fleet of eight heavy cruisers arrives in time to defend the Vindicator and the colony. The Selelvian and Zaldan fleets turn to engage each other in low orbit of Cestus III. Meanwhile, the attack on the supply compound fails, and the pirates instead kidnap a Starfleet science team to use as bargaining chips.

240912.26 - The crew of the Vindicator attempt to recover from the attack that has disabled their ship, as casualties are rushed to Sickbay and repairs begun. The Vindicator's fighter Wing joins the fight against the Selelvians.

2410

241001.02 - Repairs near completion and the Vindicator prepares to join the fight as one of the Zaldan ships protecting them is destroyed. The sheer number of Selelvian attackers is beginning to overwhelm the defending Zaldans and Starfleet Fighters, with losses on both sides beginning to mount. Meanwhile, the Security detail on the colony interrogate the prisoners from the pirate attack and learn the identity of the pirate leader.

241001.09 - The USS Vindicator, though still without shields and primary phasers, re-engages the Selelvians and, along with the Zaldan flagship Truth, Justic, and Fury, are able to disable the Selelvian flagship, August Dawn. The Dawn begins to fall into the planet's atmosphere, but the Centaur-class USS Enkidu and several escorts arrive to destroy the Selelvian cruiser before it can crash into the colony. With the new fully armed Starfleet reinfocements, the Selelvians opt to retreat with what remains of their fleet. The USS Suha, one of the Enkidu's escorts, assists with the capture of the pirate vessel.

241001.16 - The crew of the Vindicator begin repairs and taking on wounded and prisoners in the aftermath, with the Selelvian fleet being tracked by two of the USS Enkidu's escorts. Beta Fleet Commander Admiral Cerywyn promises to reinforce the Starfleet presence in the sector, beginning with routing a medical ship to assist with the hundreds wounded in the battle.

241001.23 - Repairs continue as loss of life and craft is reflected upon, with some wounded being closer to heart than others. The Vindicator's port warp nacelle is badly damaged and is not suitable for warping into battle, so the Security Chief and XO prepare to take a contingent of Security officers aboard the USS Enkidu and their escorts to track down and end the Selelvian threat.

241001.30 - A large team of Security officers from the USS Vindicator transfer temporarily to the USS Enkidu and depart for the Umbra System, where the remnants of the Selelvian Raider fleet is believed to be hiding. Repairs and recovery continues.

241002.06 - The USS Montessori, an Olympic-class Medical ship, arrives to begin assisting with the off-loading of the numerous wounded from the Vindicator. Meanwhile, the USS Enkidu and their escorts discover the hidden Selelvian base and begin their assault after initial communications failed to resolve the matter peacefully.

241002.13 - Though much of the Selelvian fleet escaped, The Vindicator's security teams, beaming off the Enkidu, succeed in capturing the base and several of the Selelvian leaders before withdrawing with the approach of Selelvian reinforcements. The prisoners are charged with crimes against the Federation upon being turned over to the USS Vindicator. The Vindicator travels to Zald to make use of the Zaldan shipyards for repairs, and the Fleet is informed of the mission outcome. The crew are recognized for their efforts with deserved promotions and awards.

241002.20 - The Vindicator undergoes repairs using the Zaldan drydock facilities while the USS Messina arrives and commences with personnel and equipment transfers. Several personal changes are made over the next several days. Most of the crew take the opportunity for some R&R and social interactions.

241002.27 - Outpost 624, in the Ajilon System near the Federation-Klingon border, relays a call for medical assistance from the Federation colony on Ajilon Prime to deal with a viral outbreak. The crew are recalled to stations and the Vindicator prepares to depart Zald for Ajilon Prime.

241003.06 - As the Crew prepares to depart Zald for Ajilon Prime, Cmdr. Bishop is recalled away from the Vindicator by Fleet Command leaving the Young Commander Vokar as the New Commanding Officer of the USS Vindicator, just as the New mission gets underway.

241003.13 - Doctor Alexia Vaughn is named Executive Officer of the USS Vindicator, and as she prepares herself for the change from Sickbay to Command, The Crew depart Zald and are on route for Ajilon Prime whilst the new CMO, Dr. Thorin Oco and Chief Science, Lt. Armeny Verstan work hard preparing for the encounter ahead with the Virus.

241003.27 - Arrival at Ajilon Prime.

241003.28 - Fighters from the USS Vindicator pursue two ships infected with the now dubbed Ajilon Virus, the Gakor and the Dolar. The Dolar is successfully retrieved but the crew of the Gakor attack the squadron, resulting in the Gakor's destruction.

241005.15 - The Dolar crew is being monitored in quarantine on board the Vindicator. Many of them die during the attempt to find a cure but a few appear unaffected such as the Unjoined Trill Captain.

241005.22 - An away team beams to Ajilon Prime to setup planet-side quarantine and analysis of the infected.

241007.31 - A breakthrough finally occurs as the medical and science teams headed by Dr. Oco and Dr. Verstan are able to isolate and identify a chemical latent in Unjoined Trills appears to defend against the virus. Unfortunately this chemical is not present in joined Trills. Dr. Verstan also discovers that the virus itself is manufactured and not of a natural origin.

241008.01 - A mysterious ship is discovered near Ajilon Prime and appears to be observing the situation. The Vindicator pursues the ship when it flees upon being discovered.

241008.07 - An actual cure it worked out for the virus and it is rushed into production. During the work up to this point Dr. Verstan has become exposed to the virus and is now in isolation. The cure is transmitted to Ajilon Prime and provided to those on board who were exposed.

241008.22 - While chasing the suspect ship it becomes clear that the Vindicator may be flying into a trap. Vokar orders the ship to return to Starbase 22.

241009.05 - Lieutenant Commander Olan Dar transfers from the USS Drake, currently docked at Starbase 22, to the USS Vindicator as the new Executive Officer. He is also promoted to Commander.

241009.26 - With resupply and crew changes completed, the Vindicator departs Starbase 22 to attempt to track down the creators of the Ajilon Virus.

241010.17 - The Vindicator approaches a nebula to mask their approach to a system where the trail they were following ends.

241010.24 - Vokar is promoted to Captain. The Vindicator leaves the nebula to enter the system to continue their investigation.

241011.21 - During scans of the system the Vindicator discovers the remains of the mystery ship they were following, a freighter of unknown origin. There is evidence in the debris that leads them to approach a nearby asteroid field for further investigation.

241011.28 - After entering the asteroid field for further detailed scans, the Vindicator encounters a runabout that makes an attempt to escape. The attempt is however a ruse to draw the massive ship further into the asteroids for an ambush. Commander Dar orders the ship to follow at a distance closer to the edge of the field when he suspects as much. Regardless, a trap is sprung by the Vanguard under Osric Tia.

24101.05 - The Vindicator, heavily outnumbered by mostly smaller ships, is nearly crippled when it runs through a field of cloaked mines which detonate against the aft sections. To add to the problems the Vanguard have also setup subspace weapons platforms which the Vindicator cannot locate. Despite all this the Vindicator makes it out of the field and causes significant damage to the Vanguard fleet, destroying most of it. In the process all Marine fighters are lost.

241012.12 - The mounting damage to the Vindicator results in the core nearing a breach. It is ejected from the ship and into the remains of the Vanguard fleet. The explosion takes out a few more ships but hits the Vindicator itself hard as well.

241012.19 - The evacuation order is given and the crew escapes the doomed ship in pods and shuttles. Captain Vokar remains on the bridge to give cover to the escapees by flying the Vindicator under the last of its thruster power into the last ship standing from the Vanguard. At about the same time another fleet arrives to clean up the remains of the Vanguard fleet, lead by what appears to be a Klingon Bird-of-Prey. As the last Vanguard ship makes its escape, it launches a torpedo at the Vindicator, obliterating the bridge and presumably Captain Vokar as well.

2411

241101.02 - The surviving crew of the Vindicator is picked up by the Border Defence Force dispatched by Versailles to help, but arriving only in time to clean up the mess.

241101.09 - The Vindicator crew returns to Versailles for recovery. The Vindicator hull is secured and hauled back to Versailles shortly after.

241101.23 - Commander Dar and the majority of the Vindicator crew are assigned to an older Akira-class ship, the USS Hades, while the Vindicator hull is repaired and the ship reconstructed in the Versailles shipyard under the care of Chief Engineer Akida Jackson.

241102.06 - With the rebuild of the Vindicator underway, the USS Hades under Commander Dar departs Versailles to patrol the Bella Rosa region which has been subjected to a series of raider attacks in recent weeks.

241108.13 - The rebuild of the Vindicator is nearly complete and the USS Hades returns to Versailles so the crew can transfer back to their previous ship.

241108.23 - Captain Vokar has been discovered alive but due to circumstances involving the Vanguard is removed from command. Commander Dar is officially given command of the USS Vindicator.

241108.29 - Lieutenant Commander Robert Lansine assigned to the Vindicator as the new Executive Officer

241109.02 - The Vindicator leads a Starfleet battlegroup to a Vanguard staging base and attacks, destroying a large fleet of enemy vessels and taking many Vanguard prisoners

241111.20 - After the Vanguard conflict the Vindicator and her crew head 'north' to explore and encounter the Veraki, a pre-warp society on the brink of FTL travel.

2412

241205.13 - Following the events of the Veraki first contact the Vindicator returns to exploration, first stopping at a nearby nebula for scientific examination.
