The Shadow of Miyahara

« Back to Mission Groups

After the trial of Captain Taiga Aisaka, in which Captain Aisaka and her crew prevailed over Admiral Tanaka Miyahara, the former admiral, as well as his proxies and many of his supporters, began an aggressive and unprecedented effort to deny and overturn the trial.

Miyahara and his allies promoted numerous false claims and conspiracy theories that the trial was stolen, including Tal Shiar interference, rigged evidence, and JAG fraud.

In the twenty years since the end of the Dominion War, there has been a smoldering hatred from veterans and gold star families of the era in the belief that the Federation was pacifying too quickly, putting them at odds with the younger generation, who were only children during the war.

Now, Miyahara is capitalizing on that hatred; using his trial loss as a call to arms to "Save the Federation" and "Stop the Steal"

Miyahara may be out of Starfleet, but his shadow still looms large over the Federation...

The Myogi's first post-Aisaka trial mission is rather routine to ease the ship back into service:

Commander Seiji Iwaki of the Nebula Class USS Nikko has for the longest time been harassing Federation-bound Klingon shipping, stopping and boarding Klingon ships to inspect their cargoes, even though most ships have no contraband to hide.

Iwaki's actions have angered the Klingon Empire, who are threatening war with the Federation. Looking to avoid war, Starfleet has dispatched the USS Myogi to take Commander Iwaki back to earth to stand trial for war mongering.

The Myogi's mission sounds simple. However, things are complicated when Commander Iwaki isn't willing to surrender himself: In fact, he believes he's actually doing the right thing by protecting free trade within the Federation.

With Commander Iwaki successfully in custody, the USS Myogi begins its return trip to Sol so that justice may be served to the insubordinate captain. Unseen by the Myogi's crew, however; a sinister plot that has been brewing since before the ship even set off is about to be put into action:

At a "Save the Federation" rally in San Francisco, the Myogi's former commanding officer; Citizen Tanaka Miyahara, gives an inflammatory speech to a crowd of millions from all walks of life in the Federation. A speech in which Miyahara repeats his false claims of JAG fraud while calling upon the protestors to march on Starfleet Headquarters: A sentiment echoed by extremists in the crowd; who begin directing the crowd towards Starfleet Headquarters before Miyahara is even finished speaking.

When the Myogi reaches less than a day's distance to Sol; Captain Takahashi receives an emergency order to converge upon Sol as soon as possible; as Starfleet Headquarters has been breached and overrun by an angry mob of Miyahara supporters; fully consumed by the "big lie" Miyahara has been peddling.

Takahashi orders the Myogi's speed increased to arrive in Sol as quickly as they can. But what exactly are they flying into?

After the attack on Starfleet Headquarters, it is assumed that the USS Myogi will be given orders to stand down, and her crew will be granted some much-needed shore leave. However, to everyone's surprise, the Myogi receives orders to transport two "important guests" to Beta Antares Fleet Yards, due to rampant security risks in the wake of the attack making shuttle transport not possible. However, the identities of the "important guests" are withheld from Captain Takahashi for fear of having her back out of the assignment.

Takahashi decides to recruit the assistance of the Myogi's 2 sister ships, also in the Sol system due to the attack, to ensure the mission goes smoothly. The USS Akina, having recently undergone a change in command following the death of Captain Arles Felnoir, is an easy sell, but the USS Haruna is a different story, as the Haruna's captain, Captain Shimakaze Zh'gero, agrees to help only if Maho and her senior staff can beat her in a "contest of teamwork, courage, and sacrifice" in a setting familiar to Maho- a no-holds-barred touge race!

Maho accepts Shimakaze's challenge, initially viewing it as an opportunity to boost her crew's morale following the attack. However, it soon becomes apparent that Maho refuses to lose to the arrogant Andorian, and begins to take the challenge a little too seriously.

Having beaten Shimakaze at her game, the crews of the 3 Project Jomo ships can now focus on the task at hand: However, things go wrong almost as soon as the "important guests" beam aboard, revealing themselves to be Captain Taiga Aisaka and Lieutenant Commander Ryuuji Takasu of the USS Tokyo.

Tensions run high, as the last time Captain Aisaka was aboard the Myogi was shortly after the attack at Alvatar, and Captain Takahashi has not been quick to forget the hurtful things Aisaka said to her, and the disastrous events, including her spoiled first wedding, that followed. And now, Starfleet expects Maho to ferry Taiga to Beta Antares, where the Tokyo has been undergoing repairs.

Will the Myogi be able to make it to Beta Antares without Maho revealing how she truly feels about Taiga? Can Maho stop Keisuke from doing what he feels he should have done after Alvatar? And will there be right wing extremists along the way bent on finishing what the rioters at Starfleet Headquarters started?
