Mission Summary

When a series of high space robberies are reported from several remote Federation colonies and outposts on the fringes of Federation space bordered by the Klingon Empire, the Federation naturally believes the Klingons are responsible for border incursions and the pillaging of the colony worlds and outposts. Unable to commit to more starships to handle the upset colonist, Starfleet Command dispatches the recently refitted Walker class starship Hades and her young Commanding Officer, Commander Lightwood to question the colonist and investigate the area.
With his Security Chief being aided by Security Investigator , the two begin to put together pieces of a puzzle that are not matching up with modus operandi of the Klingons. Resources, materials, and weapons are being taken, with very few witnesses, but the body count is not adding up. Whomever is responsible is not leaving a trail of blood to follow and appear to be more interested in simple thievery than anything else. Ultimately, it is decided that the Klingons are not responsible for these crimes.

The USS Hades happens to be in the right place at the right time when a distress call from a Federation colony reports that they are being attacked with equipment and materials being transported off the planet. The transmission is abruptly cutoff and the USS Hades rushes to investigate, catching a quick bleep on the sensors of a fleeing starhip. Commander Lightwood orders his crew to pursue the vessel ultimately leading to a ship to ship exchange of weapons fire.
