Mission: Repairs and Retribution
Location: Starbase 67
Timeline: Three weeks after leaving the Dinosaur Planet

Captain Kaylen Rhenora sighed as the masseuse worked through the tight muscles of her back, a strategic arrangement of pillows and cushions allowing her to semi lie on her side whilst he worked his magic in her muscles. "You are tense, much to tense" He commented, jabbing a thumb into a particularly stubborn knot that refused to yield. She jumped, remembering to relax and breathe if this was going to work at all. Remal had suggested she take some time out, get a massage, a light workout and just be for a while whilst the Sunfire was being repaired. The mighty ship was still a week or so away from completion, the Starbase repair team refitting and upgrading some of the components whilst they corrected the damage from their forced landing.

There was a knock at the door and Rhenora frowned, how could someone be so rude as to interrupt her massage? She tried to zone out, focus on the flickering of the candles and the smell of the oil as the voices in behind the door conversed. After a few moments she was convinced something was wrong and rose, quickly dressing and was shoving her feet into her boots when there was the sound of weapons fire and a dull thud. Instantly she looked around for anything she could use as a weapon, finding only candles, oils and cushions.

The door burst open and two Cardassians stepped into the room, their clothing indicating they were from the Obsidian Order, the Cardassian Intelligence and Spy department. Her blood ran cold as they turned and fired on the internal sensors within the room, essentially blinding anyone from watching or gaining intel.

"Ahh the illustrious Kaylen Rhenora. Catch you at a bad time did we? Seems fitting. The Cardassian Government would like to have a little chat about the incident on Orias III. I'm sure you remember the one. You missed the trial but never mind, we found you all guilty of murder. Your death penalty awaits" Their weapons were trained on her and she had no presumption that they wouldn't fire if she tried anything. There was nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.

Rhenora stood still as they approached, unsure if they were going to kill her now or take her some place else to be executed. She whispered a prayer for Remal and the rest of the crew to be kept safe in her mind, mentally preparing herself for whatever would happen next.

The lead Cardassian stood in front of her and slung a right hook at her jaw so hard it cracked the bone and split her lip, leaving drops of red blood on the floor. "That was for Gul Maccett" He said with venom in his voice. He yanked her upright again and hit her once more, knocking her out cold "And that was for every Cardassian you murdered on Bajor". He kicked her unconscious form with a boot just to make sure, then pressed a control on his wrist, the three of them disappearing in a glimmer of a transporter beam.
