His mind also flashes back to the destruction of the Republic Fleet in the Borg Assault just a few years earlier. He remembers seeing the probe telemetry of the hundreds of ships, all destroyed, on the Odysseus' Viewscreen.
He comes back to the present, staring at the screen with a grim expression.*
Matt: Screen off.
Ops: Aye sir.
*The screen deactivates, showing the grey wall of the bridge behind it.*
Matt: John, tell me you have more information.
John: Sorry sir.
Matt: Keep at it.
*He sighs before standing up and walking over to the Ops station.*
Lieutenant, where's the next closest Medical Station?
Ops: Delta Auricon. It's... 34 hours away at maximum warp.
Matt: Helm, lay in a course for Delta Auricon, Warp 14.
Helm: Aye sir.
Matt: Where's the next closest Starbase?
Ops: Starbase 591 is 20 minutes away at Maximum Warp.
Matt: Raise them on Subspace. They can send another ship to investigate. We have wounded to attend to.
*The Ops officer starts tapping controls, trying to raise Starbase 591.*
Starbase 591, this is R.S.S. Matthew Neilson.
*Matt sits back down and looks at the Helm officer.*
*The Matthew Neilson jumps to warp.*
Ops: Starbase 591, please respond.
*Matt looks at the Ops officer, a sinking feeling raising in his stomach.*
R.S.S. Matthew Neilson to Starbase 591, please respond on this frequency.
Matt: Try the U.S.S. Galileo! She's supposed to be guarding the base!
Ops: R.S.S. Matthew Neilson to U.S.S. Galileo, please respond.
R.S.S. Matthew Neilson to U.S.S. Galileo, come in please!
Matt: Red Alert! *The Red Alert Klaxon sounds* Helm, change course for Starbase 591, maximum warp!
Helm: Aye sir!
Matt: Notify the Normandy!
Open a priority 1 Channel to all Allied ships in the sector!
Ops: Normandy has been notified, you're on sector comm!
Matt: All allied vessels and starbases in Sector 371, this is the R.S.S. Matthew Neilson! Starbase 589 has been destroyed along with her Garrison fleet! We have also lost contact with Starbase 591 and are proceeding at maximum warp! We are requesting that all ships not on Priority 1 missions return to the nearest base for defence operations! This is a Priority 1 Disaster order! Authorisation code: Forrester Alpha-Alpha-Tango-Nine-Sigma-Twelve-Two-Seven! I repeat, this is a Priority One Disaster order!
