BATTLE DAMAGE ASSESSMENT – Rolor Sector Engagement

Result: Total Loss.

Summary:

  • 98 Vessels Lost, including Command ship USS Destiny

  • 11 Vessels MIA

  • Battlegroup Axanar augmented with three additional vessels

    • USS Merrimac – Heavy Damage, Ordnance expended

    • USS Georgia – Light Damage, Ordnance expended

    • USS Andelle – No Damage, Ordnance expended

  • Battlegroup Axanar currently evading Dominion Fleet through the Rolor Nebula

  • Contact with SFCommand and local //BattleNet lost due to jamming/interference from Rolor Nebula

  • Axanar Ordnance at 45%

Assessment:

The Rolor Sector has fallen. Seventh Fleet losses are near total.

Events:

At 1703 hours, Rear Admiral Archer reported a sizable Dominion fleet was entering the Rolor Sector and he gave orders for the fleet to engage.

At 1735 hours, Seventh Fleet command issued order ‘Alamo’ and ordered a retreat to Alpha Volantis. Task Force Axanar was ordered to secure the fall back maneuver at Kavaria and to stay away from the active conflict.

At 1802 hours, Task Force Axanar engaged two squadrons of Dominion attack ships en-route to Kavaria. Dominion forces were completely destroyed with the loss of two Peregrine class fighters from VMF 221; Marine F.LT Sanders, F.LT Mitchens and Marine F.LT Schmid and Marine G.SGT Littler.

At 1912 hours, Task Force Axanar arrived at Kavaria. Seventh Fleet Command issued order CASE: Random – evacuation of all Starfleet and Federation assets from the sector. Task Force Axanar affected the retrieval of all Federation personnel from Starbase Lombardo.

As per orders from Admiral Ross, ASSET: DENIAL was implemented by Bravo Squad, 1st Platoon, 2nd Company, 321st Marines. Deployed mines inside Starbase Lombardo were activated upon retrieval of the Marines and will respond to the authorised master code. Should make capture and control for Dominion Forces difficult.

Task Group Axanar was met by the following vessels from the Seventh Fleet:

  1. USS Merrimac, Nebula Class – Current status: Flight Deck has been destroyed, weapons pod ejected due to fire in torpedo magazine. Current crew: 429 active, 89 wounded, 47 fatalities.

  2. USS Georgia, Miranda Class – Current status: Zero torpedo complement, phaser capacity at 82%, aft shield projector destroyed. Current crew: 191 active, 12 wounded, 4 fatalities.

  3. USS Andelle, Centaur Class – Current status: Zero torpedo complement, all other systems online. Full crew capacity.

At 1945 hours, the following message was received:

“Admiral’s Log, Stardate 51023.1.

I am broadcasting in the clear. I take full responsibility for today’s losses. Many good Starfleet officers gave their lives today, and I want everyone listening to know that they died for the highest ideals – to preserve, to save, to enrich the Federation.

I am proud to have served with every one of them.

As you can hear, we are about to be overwhelmed, and before the Dominion boards my command ship, I am going to launch all my probes. They will be set to broadcast the names of everyone who served here today: the best memorial for them I can make. To everyone listening, I can say only this:

Do not let the sacrifice of these officers and crew be in vain.

This is the final broadcast of Rear Admiral James Archer.”
