This is Vice Admiral Yuung of the Federation Fleet Heavy Escort Carrier Esclarent. My apologies for being so royally late, I had a run-in with the Ferengi (read: Cryptic) and got locked out of my account for almost a week.

The flagship's name comes from Arthurian legend. Alternatively known as the Sword in Stone, and the Sword of Peace, the Esclarent represented both Arthur's right to rule and the peace that England enjoyed during that golden age.

The irony of that, is that Mordred later stole that sword and killed Arthur with it. A subtle reference to Escort Group Esclarent being closely affiliated with Section 31.

But if you think we spend our days in smoky backrooms plotting and scheming, well, we're actually not that different from any Starfleet officer. We wear the same uniform, trust in diplomacy first, seek out new civilizations, and boldly go where no one has gone before.

Only idiots parade around in that black outfit, just as only idiots believe that ideals are absolute.

All hailing frequencies are open. If you need a veteran carrier escort group, we're keen to help.

I am V. Adm. Kha Yuung, and I approve of this message.
