Appearances are Deceiving

Mission: Sabotage
Location: USS Washington

=^= All personnel and cargo is aboard captain. =^= came the voice of the transporter chief.

Shran, sitting in his chair on the bridge noted the information. "L'Rissa, take us out, one quarter impulse."

"Aye" replied the Conn officer.

The Washington detached umbilical's and began to edge forward, past the other docked vessels and moving towards the exit. The ship picked up speed as it came closer to the exit, and the untrained eye might fear a collision. The doors began to open as the Washington drew ever closer, and moments later the ship past the doors of space dock and was once more in open space, Earth below and Luna easily viewed from the bridge.

"Take us out of the system, three quarters impulse. When we reach Pluto, take us to Golan Iota, warp 8" came Shran's orders.

"Increasing to three quarters impulse" said L'Rissa. She considered the new destination, Golan Iota. That was very near Cardassian space, or rather what once was Cardassian space. It was on the Federation side of what was the DMZ before the war. She wasn't found of Cardassians personally. She could only hope this didn't mean they would be going into Cardassian space.

The Washington continued its way out of the system, passing Neptune, Pluto in sight. only a few moments later the Washington became a momentary blur as it jumped to warp, en route to Golan Iota.

Shran looked over the data from his monitor. It would take nearly 5 days to reach their destination. He knew this stop over was supposed to be little more than a simple supply run with the potential of perhaps some engineering housekeeping, but considering the intelligence he had been given, he wondered about other possibilities. Cardassians were a proud people, and the military had never gotten over the loss of the war. It had been some time since he had been anywhere close to this area. He wondered how that might impact him. He might need to speak with Estella before they arrived. He looked at the chronometer. Beta shift would be arriving soon. He wanted to look a few things over. He stood, "Celes, you have the bridge. Jon should be here in a few minutes. I'm going to stellar cartography."

"Aye sir" she replied.

Shran made his way to the turbolift and exited the bridge. He needed to look things over. He was beginning to have...suspicions.
