The Task Force David has successfully deployed into the Drenan system.
The initial arrival sector seems to be devoid of any permanent installation. Comms chatter registered in the area come from azimuths 0,90, 135, 180, 270 and 315. The relative strength of the signals received point to azimuth 270 being the strongest, followed up by moderate signals coming from 315 and 135, while the rest was weak. Arrival sector is positioned to be upper right part of the 4 explored sectors so far.
Upper left sector contained a heavily fortified Torgoth base, as is corresponding with heavy comms chatter registered. In the lower left sector we neutralized an asteroid pirate base. Lower right sector contains a base located in a nebula and a planet.
Out of the 5 deployed transports only 4 did make it through. While 4 transports made it through intact, only a complete wreck of USFP transport Amatha emerged from the subspace. Engineering inspection confirmed no living souls aboard Amatha and no usable material could be recovered from the wreck. Fusion charges did detonate the hull into suitably small pieces that the wreck location should not be detectable by any known hegemony sensors unless directly looking for, from a very close distance.
Otherwise the Task Force has amassed all ships and is parked in the upper right sector, in a grid C3Mk6. What number the sector will get assigned remains to be determined yet.
For the analysis of enemy force encountered and the assessment of the targets observed, I turn to the weapons officers serving on the active ships.
