Alpha-Wave Inducer

Induces variable levels of unconsciousness, from sleep to complete anesthesia.

Anti-gravity Stretcher

A stretcher that hovers slightly above the ground thus allowing a patient to be moved very easily. It is simple to use and can be operated by a single officer.

Autosuture

Closes open wounds by bridging the tissues with a fine artificial fiber.

Biobed

Used to monitor vital functions in patients. They are the standard diagnostic equipment in every Sickbay/Infirmary, used for examinations, surgeries and other medical procedures.

Bi-spectral Monitor

Used to assess a patient’s level of consciousness.

Cardio-stimulator

Used to resuscitate a patient suffering from a cardiac arrest.

Cortical Stimulator

Used to stimulate central nervous system function in unconscious or comatose patients.

Dermal Regenerator

Stimulates the healing of damaged organic tissues.

Electron Resonance Scanner

Used to examine DNA strands; it’s resolution can be changed so that it is clear enough to examine even base pair sequences.

Electrophoretic Dialysis Unit

Used to remove nanoprobes from a previously Borg-enhanced patient.

The Greenfield Filter

A device, surgically placed in a central vein, used to trap blood clots before they can cause damage in the heart, lungs or brain.

Hypospray

Isotropic Restraint

A forcefield that shapes itself to the body of a patient in order to hold them completely immobile on a biobed.

Medical Tricorder

A device which runs a diagnostic scan of the patient and feeds back information through a hand held visual display so that a diagnosis can be made.

Neural Imaging Scanner

Provides detailed information about a patient’s central nervous system function.

Neural stimulator

An instrument used to “jumpstart” neural activity in the central nervous system, which is equivalent to the cardio version for the CNS.

Neurolink

For emergency stabilization of patients with brain stem injuries.

Osteogenic Stimulator

Stimulates healing of broken or damaged bones.

Quarantine Field

A modified forcefield which isolates a patient or object from the surrounding environment. Most commonly used to isolate patients with infectious diseases to prevent it spreading to other members of the crew.

We have come to find out that Commander Jeldon Raxx, the Archangel's Strategic Operations Officer and Second Officer, has chosen to take back his position on the USS Viminal Hill as their Executive Officer, taking with him Marine Captain Jamison Dwyer. There are rumors that a new Marine CO will be coming, but no one can be sure who.

There were also reports that the USS Budapest, the same ship carrying the Judge Advocate General, Fleet Admiral Jacob Stanaforth and prisoner Nikolai Rostov, had been attacked by Orion mercenary forces and the prisoner was beamed off. The entire command crew plus others were killed and several more were wounded, including the Admiral. The Archangel is currently assisting in repairs and treating the wounded.

As a result of past missions going awry and an enemy combatant on board the Archangel, the Judge Advocate General himself, Admiral Jacob Stanaforth visited the Archangel. He removed the prisoner, Doctor Nikolai Rostov, but left his two JAG aides on board to conduct an investigation.

Commanders Eva Deverell and Christian Stryfe questioned several members of the crew, and while there were mistakes made on both sides, the conclusion is this: the JAG officers were presented with wrong information and they feel like this turned into a witch hunt. Which it was, and now have to figure out who the mastermind behind the entire operation is.
