|Subject:||Arrest and trial of Starfleet Captain.|
A Starfleet captain was officially charged today with numerous major offences, many of which will see her sentenced to life imprisonment.
Captain Lynsey Christiansen, captain of the Starfleet medical research ship USS Warrigul, has been held under house arrest on Spacedock for the past month while her ship was impounded and searched and her crew questioned, following allegations from other Starfleet captains, Federation citizens and several independant persons. It is also rumoured that the Kaferian Government and Hellesport Station both wish to pursue legal action against the Captain.
At this time, the reported list of charges include crimes against sentient life, conspiracy to commit crimes against sentient life, conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit kidnapping, conspiracy to commit fraud, falsifying Starfleet records and medical malpractice.
The prehearing is expected to take place within the next 48 hours.
