The USS Hawaii conducted a shakedown cruise to Bre'el IV after completing final construction in spacedock at Providence Fleet Yards. Her mission was to ascertain the availability of Bre'el IV's transport/supply vessels for the Gorn Theater.

En route, the USS Hawaii received an ominous warning from Bre'el IV. Despite these mysterious transmissions, the Diplomatic Detachment led by Lieutenant Zamora successfully negotiated the use of the Bre'ella's transport and supply vessels for the Gorn Theater.

In addition, it seems Hawaii's success had not gone unnoticed nor did the rising importance of Bre'el IV. The Federation established the Bre'el Diplomatic Mission and subsequently, required some Starfleet Personnel to operate. As a result, many of our crew were transferred to support their staff.

Despite these transfers, we also have new crew arriving. Two of these new arrivals, Lieutenant Junior Grade Cortez and Ensign Jones, caused a security incident that went viral among Bre'ella social media that caused a diplomatic headache. Lieutenant Fallon is leading an investigation into what happened.

The USS Hawaii crew enjoyed 48 hours of liberty in orbit of Bre'el IV, probably the last chance they will get to relax, before heading towards the Gorn Front to start their Intelligence, Surveillance, & Reconnaissance Patrol.

The Federation Secretary of the Exterior toured the USS Hawaii and opened a new Federation Diplomatic Mission on Bre'el IV before Hawaii departed.

The USS Hawaii patrolled the space near Canterra when it rendezvoused with the USS Wyoming (the ship the Hawaii was to meet per their orders), a Steamrunner-class vessel, emitting Gorn signatures amid radiation clouds. During the encounter, the Captain of the Wyoming attempted to take command of the Hawaii under the pretense that its CO, Commander Tachibana was incompetent or complicit in assisting the Gorn due to the presence of a Gorn on the Hawaii senior staff as the Chief Medical Officer. During the tense standoff between the two senior staffs, an enemy ship appeared and started firing. Possessing some sort of technological advantage, the ship was able to penetrate the shields of the Federation ships. The USS Wyoming rammed the enemy vessel and CDR Tachibana made a fateful decision to save the Hawaii and retreat. During the battle, the Gorn doctor appears to have transported himself off the ship, deepening the mystery surrounding his loyalties.

En route to Xavier Fleet Yards (XFY), Tachibana is promoted to Captain. There are several re-assignments due to the XO and OPS being WIA, necessitating their transfer to XFY's medical facilities for recovery. During the transit, which takes longer than usual due to the extensive debris field and the damage to the Hawaii, it is discovered that the missing Gorn Doctor never transported himself off of the Hawaii, rather he made it look like he did. Furthermore, LTJG Cortez, the Chief Intelligence Officer, currently locked in the brig due to siding with the Wyoming's CO during the attempted takeover, revealed her actions were necessitated by blackmail.

The USS Hawaii docked with Xavier Fleet Yards to assess the operational capability of the station as the crew dealt with the fallout of battle, conducting repairs, and conducting a search for the missing Gorn Doctor, finally apprehended aboard the USS Hawaii. The Command Team scheduled a meeting with the TF93 Command Staff along with the USS Devonshire's Command Team about the way ahead for the Gorn War.

The USS Hawaii is docked with Xavier Fleet Yards (XFY) along with the USS Devonshire to assess the operational capability of the station as the crew continues to deal with the fallout of the previous battle at Canterra and conduct repairs both to Hawaii and XFY.

The Command Team met with the TF93 Command Staff along with the USS Devonshire's Command Team about the way ahead for the Gorn War as Hawaii's Assistant Chief Engineer (ACHENG) LTJG Iria Taltos discovered Klingon weapons used in the Gorn Attack.

During the brief to the USS Devonshire's Senior Staff, klaxons blare RED ALERT as an unknown vessel has been detected.

The crew quickly discover the unknown vessel is the same Gorn Cruiser the Hawaii encountered in the last mission and narrowly escaped from. Not wanting to leave the crippled XFY and alongside the heavily armed USS Devonshire, the crew engaged the Gorn Cruiser, launching boarding parties in an effort to learn more about the new and very effective torpedo technology of the Gorn in what has become the Second Battle of XFY.
