Things were going pretty well until FCPT Knotts made the decision to join the away team against the advice of the Chief Archeologist, A-CMDR Brunelle and myself. After that, things went from bad to worse.
All ships should have immediately changed their command codes and locked out FCPT Knotts. This did not occur to anyone until after the computers began malfunctioning.
There were several computer glitches that were not found because we failed to verify that the information presented was correct by checking with our departments.
I fired on USS Voyager when she requested that we help in disabling her secondary command processors. I did not think about the ramifications of that action. I made a quick call and it was the wrong decision. I wanted to help, but I should have trusted A-CMDR Brunelle to think her way out of the situation and gave her suggestions instead of acting rashly.
We failed to look at the contents of the Klingon distress call. We don’t even know that the Klingon Ships weren’t there to help.
Some ships failed to interact with their NPC Klingon characters which arose their suspicions. I will say that for the situation to be believable, the NPC Klingons should have reached out to the Bridge and demanded to be told what was going on, rather than sending out a distress call. Only if ignored should they have sent a distress signal.
My ship used anesthetine gas to subdue the Klingons. This was uncalled for. I did not object because I was pissed that they sent a distress call, and I had every intention of moving them to the holodeck while they slept and modifying the memory of the two that were not already asleep. Was it the best way to deal with the situation? Probably not. Would it have worked? Probably
