Endeavour: The Savage Syndrome [Star Trek]

Episode 1:
Player Characters: 
The Crew of the USS Endeavour, NCC-1895, Constitution Class Starship (refit):
Andrea as Lt. Ona Greer, Ops Officer
Bob as Capt. Robert Locke
Gina as Cmdr. Isabella Hale, Helm Chief
Jason as Lt. Francisco Otomo, Chief Security Officer
Tug as Dr. Azala Vex, Trill Chief Medical Officer

Synposis: Returning in a shuttle craft, the senior officers of Endeavour respond to a distress call from research facility on an otherwise uninhabited world and find themselves attacked by evolutionary atavisms.

Commentary: My second session of Star Trek Adventures and my second group! This adventure is a modified version of the introductory adventure "The Rescue At Xerxes IV," with an episode name borrowed from a story synopsis submitted for the aborted Star Trek Phase II series with a similar conceit.

This series, in fact, will borrow a lot from Star Trek Phase II, included a similar upgrade of the Constitution class.

The dice weren't necessarily with the players tonight. A number of complications hurt them: Greer sprained an ankle, Dr. Vex lost her medical equipment, and Hale dropped a phaser. We'll see how those come into play in the second half.

The Endeavour crew had been returning from a conference at Starbase 134 on Rigel VI. The distress call was from L-373-IV an extrapolation of system nomenclature in that sector introduced in "The Doomsday Machine."
