The fall of the SCS Revelation

Post by Kraiz » Fri Feb 25, 2011 6:33 pm

"Greetings. If you will all have a seat, we will continue with the debriefing as planned, thank you." Rear Commander Bradley said into the microphone as he stepped onto the stage. The meeting was being held on Tripoli SHipyard in one of their massive assembly rooms. After a short pause, shuffling of people to their seats, conversations ended, and this was all followed by ilence. bradLey straigHteNED hiS TiE aNd bagon to sPEaK

"Now, as you all know, the Nomad situation has gotten majorly out of hand. They managed to break our defenses around the Jumphole a second time. The SCS Revelation was moved by Commander Perry's orders into the Nebula to smash a hole into Sector nine and retake the jumphole and possibly gain new ground. The SCS revelation was one of our most advanced Dreadnoughts, and served as the flagship of the south fleet.

The Revelation entered the Nebula with a fighter escort led by a freelancer by the name of Terk. The Dreadnought and the escort rammed through the Nomad's holding force on the jumphole in Omicron Gamma, and plowed into Sector 9. Upon it's arrival in the system,, the Jump hole back to the Omicrons was disabled, trapping the Revelation.

For ten minutes the Revelation held off nomad assaults. It is estimated that the Revelation destroyed a minimum of two Phas3e 3 organisms and over half a dozen Phase 2 organisms. The cause of the ship's destruction was the Nomad counter attack on the Revelation, consisting ot two more P3 and multiple P2 Organisms. The Revelation's communications tower was severed from the ship by a Nomad Particle Splitter, so further details on it's whereabouts are sketchy.

What is more alarming is that this vesselis under the command of Commander Perry himself. With the vessel destroyed, we can only hope that a search and rescue operation turns up survivors of the vessel.

The Syndicate High Command extends it's gratitude to these brave men and women aboard the Revelation who put their lives at stake to save other fellow Syndicate and Corsair lives. Let me also extend my condolences to loved ones of the 375 crew members aboard the vessel.

However, there is no time for grieving. We must continue, and must press forward on this front. The Revelation's crew will have died in vain if we did not sieze this opportunity that they have created for the rest of us. We must press forward into the system and let the Nomads know that we are not to be tampered with.

To start this process, we have begun construction of a fourth dreadnought to replace the loss of the Revelation. The new craft will employ the Revelation's same hull design, but many upgrades to her electronics, propulsion, armor, and more importantly, weapon systems, will be made. The new warship is the first design by the SDS to feature many of the upgrades she will be receiving. It has been decided that the ship will be dubbed the SCS Ultimus, stemming from the word Ultimatium, which is the message we wish to send to the Nomads with the construction of this new Dreadnought. Expect her completion in the coming week.

The SCF is already organizing an operation to conduct a combat search and Rescue operation,. This will be conducted by the numbers, and will hopefully drive away the Nomads yet again from this region of the system that lies across the Jumphole.

The location of the Revelation's last known position is unknown. The only lead we have to go by, is the following signal, which was the last message the Revelation's onboard Emergency Sensory Array transmitted:


-#-#---#--#----#----##---


That is the raw signal that was last transmitted. The Syndicate Signals Analysis department has been working full tilt to decypher this signal. If anyone has any leads on as to what this signal entails, the Syndicate would be extremely grateful for this action.

Until anyone has any valuable information, this meeting is adjourned."

The man walks off the stage, the crowd stands up and begins making for the exits of the room.

= = = = = = = = = =
OOC:

I'll award two rare weapons to the individual who can decrypt the transmission and figure out where the Revelation was last located. Look within the message to find clues as to how to decypher it.

No typos. I checked it twice over. All spelling, capitalization, punctuation, grammar, etc. are intended.

Revenge's sensor array picked up a distress signal from the revelation yesterday. the encryption header seems to be corrupted, as our logic engine cannot decipher it. not much we can do, as the revenge is down with engine trouble (the primary thruster blew a induction coil, and because of the engine's age we are having to fabricate our own. currently waiting on a shipment of superconductors from liberty)
PS:
the engineering crew are really upset about those kursari superconductors that the SDS buys cheap for the engines on less valued ships. they say if it happens again they will strap the entire logistics division to the reactor vessel. when the when the conductors are getting old.

Since this seems to have people stumped, I'll point out the primary clue that should give away the rest of the puzzle.

"bagon" - Why would I have mis-spelled this? Ie't began, nbot bagon, kind of sounds like food tome...

this is a ceasarian cipher, right? this means that there are a total of 26 different keys for the letter "A". time to get out a piece of paper and BRUTE FORCE it.

No it is not, it is a slightly different and more uncommon type, and i doubled it, then I threw in an extra bonus.

Once you decipher it, it's backwards, isn't it? :P (or you ciphered it backwards?)

@nerd: If you're referring to mine, there IS a caesarian shift in there, but you really should decypher the first cypher I laid over it before doing that...
If not: Bleh, Mark, I am not familiar with that cypher . . . yet . . .

He told me how he ciphered it in school. It's pure evil

(he said he wanted to watch you squirm trying to work it out o_O)

Too bad I'm not trying to work it out, simply because I know he probably did 3000 things to it in a random order.
