The Federation News Network has learned that last week Star Fleet Vice Admiral Derrick Grant was arrested and placed in the brig on Star Base Delta where he had been serving prior to his arrest. Since his initial arrest Grant has been released to secure confinement in his own quarters to await the beginning of his trial.
Star Fleet has not yet publicly released on what charges Vice Admiral Grant was arrested and will be tried. A source within the prosecution, who asked to remain anonymous due to not being authorized to comment, said that the charges were ‘extremely serious’ and ‘career ending’.
Another source within Star Fleet indicated that the trial would be overseen by a panel of judges made up from various backgrounds not related to the JAG Department. The names of these judges have not yet been released though if the trial is to be held on Star Base Delta it should be noted that Admiral Emily Scott, Commander of Star Fleet Security, was seen on Star Base Delta within the past week. Scott, who once was Grant’s direct supervisor might not be on the judge panel at all and could however be serving as a witness for either the prosecution or defense.
Although much uncertainty currently surrounds this case one thing you can guarantee is that the FNN will bring you updates as soon as they are received.
