When life gives you...

Submitting the missions from my OTC as told to.

Mission Title:  When life gives you...
Synopsis:

A routine shipment of fresh fruits and vegetables for use by the galley seems to be as boring as one would expect, but there's a problem. A batch of lemons that have come in are not what they seem-- they're actually explosives, and as soon as they reach the storage room, they blow a large hole in the galley walls. Concern turns to the other supplies brought aboard-- as it turns out, all of the fresh produce brought aboard is nothing but carefully timed bomb after bomb.

Brief investigation nets a warning note from a radical fringe group that considers all plant life to be sacred, untouchable, and higher in life value than 'humanoid' or 'animal' life. They've somehow also sabotaged the replicators-- not even the image of a vegetable or fruit is acceptable and won't come out of the replicator.  Apparently, they're the source of the explosives, as a warning to all herbivorous people that they won't stop until the entire quadrant grants plants the respect they're owed as life forms. The USS YourShip must established contact with members of this group on a specifically designated planet without damaging any of the local flora, and negotiate for the group to leave the practices of your diets alone. However, not everyone's willing to talk. Even getting to the meeting-place is fraught with danger. The space his hostile, and they don't allow beaming directly on-site-- a long walk is ahead, lined with more radical members of the group who don't agree with negotiations.
