CMDR Ferris is recovering from wounds received during the stand off between the expedition and local forces led by a man named Zerkin. The armed group broke up after Zerkin was killed by CMDR Ferris. They continue to be present in the city of Ocean Grove but do not appear to be hostile.
Star Fleet Command approved our involvement with the Mina to help them establish Ocean Grove as a refugee center. We will be providing medical assistance and helping refugees entering the area to find adequate food and shelter.
SCPO Stubbins took a fire team of Marines on a recon of the area to gain more detailed intelligence on Mina present in the area and possible security problems.
Members of the expedition have begun to explore the area looking for a new location for the expedition to move to. A resort near the coast has been the best location now for affording members of the expedition privacy, sufficient space and security.
Dr. Rioux has finished formulating a synthetic serum for the virus. It will need to be manufactured in micro-gravity, and so preparations are being made to send the needed materials and information to Unity Station so that they may begin manufacturing the serum in sufficient quantities to vaccinate the surviving population.
CMDR Ferris has ordered the engineering group to modify a bus for the Jump Team to use in future remote missions. Newly promoted PO1 Hutchinson is in charge of the tasking.
Regular communications with Star Fleet continues. Expedition members have been sending personal correspondence and reports back to Federation Space.
A member of the Mina armed forces, Field Leader Palmer, arrived at the hospital. He was ordered to report to CMDR Ferris and will be acting as the expeditions liaison to the Mina. He spent some time with members of the expedition and then went to speak with the members of the armed force that recently laid siege to the hospital. He expects to be able to recruit some of them to help with refugee operations.
