24 March 2388

TBS was 1 month. The time is 0600 hours (6:00 am) Aegis local.
Nothing out of the ordinary has happened. Most of the Shray's crew are well and have remained on station.  Her captain is shopping for another ship.  Sector 119 of the asteroid belt is off limits.

Kallah Ramson -> Agreed.

Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> Gila> :: smiles :: You are related to felines, no doubt that is a unique characteristic, even here.
Chirakis -> ::eyes him a moment, then nods:: Very well. Carry on.
jylliene -> ::glances at the backtrace:: Coming from non-Federation space.

jylliene -> Trying to nail it down.
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> Gila> Right now a Ferengi has an easier time getting into Starfleet than Cardassians
Scott Coleridge -> ::looks up at what's happening::
Chirakis -> ::lifts a brow::
Tarisa -> ::Shakes heads.:: No. That is not my desire.
jylliene -> Overlaying known contacts.
Kallah Ramson -> ::looking over the transmission::  Oh dear.
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> :: Cayne :: Extending the sensor net...
Tarisa -> I see.
Chirakis -> ::the combat report is full of "aggressive", "terrifying", "swift", "exacting", and the like:::
Kallah Ramson -> ::looks over at Scott:: That's the same frequency used by the Droid cores we encountered.

Scott Coleridge -> ::smiles:: Thinking of investigating?
Tarisa -> ::Ear perks up.:: A log?
Fletcher Jackson -> ::absorbed in his work, which is all the minor things that OPS doesn't need to do:::
Annisha -> :: smirks :: Au know, the other than cool kids. :: smiles ::
Fletcher Jackson -> ::exciting stuff:::
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> Gila> Yes. Humans are easy, Klingons are not.
Alexis McFarland -> Ah, those kids. ::working on colouring her toenails pink::
Chirakis -> ::blanks the screen, puts the PADD in a secure area, and exits her office:::
Kallah Ramson -> Pondering if we should try and intercept them. Might be better to have talks away from the station.
Alexis McFarland -> ::a sparkly bright pink nail polish she got from the store next to the perfume shoppe::
mimipavilion -> ::exits her office and enters main medical::
Tarisa -> ::Nods in agreement.:: Very true.
jylliene -> But where? Shipyard? Or aboard the Aegean?
Chirakis -> Lieutenant Garand, take security. I will be wandering the station.
Chirakis -> Lt Garand> ::nod:: Yes, ma'am.
Scott Coleridge -> Aegean.
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> Gila> Some say we look like lizards.
Chirakis -> (Something tells me that is not a good choice.)
Scott Coleridge -> They've already been all over it head to toe; it's not like we'd be revealing any more to them.
jylliene -> Would it be easy for them to take from us?
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> Gila> Or this :: points to her forehead :: Tell me, do you think the blue is a natural color or pigmentation?
jylliene -> Relatively speaking.
Kallah Ramson -> I'd rather have Aegean than any other ship, though that might be personal bias. But it's not well equipped for diplomatic missions.
jylliene -> Not a lot of neutral locations out here.
Kallah Ramson -> Not that robotic sentients are usually very demanding in their accommodations.
Alexis McFarland -> ::finishes her last finger and admires her work:: I like it. Nice and sparkly!

Kallah Ramson -> ::smile::
Lawliet -> ::brings up the reports of the last time they encountered the droid cores::
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> Gila> Oh, and the blue at my forehead... makeup. :: shrugs ::
Kallah Ramson -> Increase scans from recons in that area.
Scott Coleridge -> I wonder if this is a broadly sanctioned effort or if they are acting on their own on this one.
Chirakis -> ::keeps her distance from Gila, watching her interaction with the population::
jylliene -> ::shrugs slightly to Coleridge::
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> Gila> So, any security issues in your travels?
Kallah Ramson -> Well, the Droid cores seemed to be acting on their own for the most part. We know they were unfriendly with the Alliance.
Tarisa -> Not within the station, save for when we were recently attacked by the Alliance.
KelsaViegnor -> ::perhaps that one young officer...the one with the nice legs. Hm.::
Alexis McFarland -> ::hugs Annisha:: Wanna get some breakfast? I hope Miana's up by now.
Chirakis -> ::enters her favorite bistro, and, as expected, she is met with her usual coffee and croissant::
Annisha -> Sure, better than a sonically washed doughnut
Kallah Ramson -> ACTION> Cloak detection grid goes off along outer most section of the Grid.
Alexis McFarland -> Yum? ::slips on a pair of matching pink open-toed sandals and heads out the door::

Tarisa -> Miana> ::Yawns as she hops out of bed and stretches.::
Lawliet -> ::checks the sensor grid:: We're picking up cloaked ships on the outermost section.
jylliene -> ::glances to main display, where that portion is flashing::
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> :: Cayne, we have lost the perimeter cloaking detection.
jylliene -> Plural? Ships?
Kallah Ramson -> Yellow alert.
Chirakis -> ::after checking it, she exits with an apology to the server and walks as calmly as possible to the command lift:: CnC.
Alexis McFarland -> ::heads to the turbolift for the food courts::
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> Gila> Alliance.. I've only gotten an inkling of that so far.
Kallah Ramson -> Power up the Grid in that section.
Lawliet -> ((did the grid go down or is it alerting?))
Chirakis -> ::exits in CnC, then waits to be briefed:::
jylliene -> ((alerting))
Kallah Ramson -> Send a challenge hail towards the contact.
jylliene -> ::sends hail::
Tarisa -> ::Nods.:: They seem to be a.... ::Perks up at the yellow alert.:: I must go. ::Stands.::
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> Gila> :: looks Tarisa over :: If you need anything let me know, and if you need and scents of any kind, let me know too.
jylliene -> ::sees the alert lights. She had almost gotten used to not having any alert showing::
mimipavilion -> ::everyone:: let’s get this place ready
Dacia Sandero -> Right. ::busies herself helping get sickbay ready::
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> Cayne> :: Displays an Aegis map on the main viewer ::
Scott Coleridge -> We might be finding out more sooner than we thought.
Tarisa -> Thank you. ::Disposes of the rest of her breakfast and heads out.::
Annisha -> :: Eats and drink :: Mmm gurge mmh
Kallah Ramson -> ACTION> A single ship decloaks. Design matches tech of the Droid Cores, though this ship is larger than others seen. slightly smaller than Aegean.
Chirakis -> ::reading the map, she already knows the problem:::
KelsaViegnor -> ::glances up at the yellow light, goes back to her reading::
Alexis McFarland -> ::eating her breakfast Blubby wrap as well, sending a message to Miana that they were at Blubby's::
mimipavilion -> ::helps set medical up::
Lawliet -> ::looks up at the display:: Looks like we have company.
Kallah Ramson -> ...right, they have cloaks... we kinda gave them cloaks...
jylliene -> ::nods, recalling::
Chirakis -> ::steps up beside Ramson::
Kallah Ramson -> ::sigh:: ...knew that one was going come back on us.
jylliene -> At least they gave us a heads-up?
Chirakis -> ::Muses:: They are not attacking.
Kallah Ramson -> Yes they did.
jylliene -> ::to Chirakis:: Diplomatic mission, apparently. They want to talk.
Chirakis -> ::Jylliene, with a brow raise:: Diplomatic?
Kallah Ramson -> ::Chirakis:: No, they sent us a message a little while ago...::nods to Ops:: So.... ::smiles:: Guess who's coming to dinner.
jylliene -> ::shows her the messages::
Tarisa -> Miana> ::Gets the message and is about to leave till she is stopped by a guard. Sends message back to Alexis.:: I can not leave... The guard will not let me when the station is on alert.
Chirakis -> Interesting. ::reads through the messages::
Kallah Ramson -> Send a message to that ship to hold it's position and prepare to be escorted in.
Kallah Ramson -> Send a flight to intercept and escort them in.
Scott Coleridge -> ::steps away:: +Nijil+ Coleridge to engineering.
Chirakis -> ::nods to Cayne re: the order:::

Kallah Ramson -> ::Scott:: See what you can do about setting up some firewalls in the computer. Hide the good silverware and all.
Kallah Ramson -> ::sees he's already on that it seems::
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> Gila> What now?
Scott Coleridge -> ::nods at Ramson::
mimipavilion -> ::finishes up helping the section she's in:: +CnC+ Medical to CnC
jylliene -> +med+ Ops here, go ahead, medical.
Kallah Ramson -> ACTION> Droid ship complies and holds position.
Nijil tr'Korjata -> :: Gets to main engineering just in time for the alert
Chirakis -> ::steps to the TAC console and sends the order to the bay:::
-> ::non-confrontational approach:::
Chirakis -> ::and yet cautious::
mimipavilion -> +OPS+ we're finishing up getting ready. What's our current status?
jylliene -> +med+ Incoming ship for diplomatic discussion. The droid cores, it seems.
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> Cayne> :: Watches Chirakis ::
Chirakis -> Commander Cayne, take aux TAC.
mimipavilion -> ::confused:: +OPS+ Well... that's different.
Scott Coleridge -> +Nijil+ Coleridge to engineering.

jylliene -> +med+ You're telling me.
Chirakis -> Keep an eye on them and monitor all communications between that ship and the escort
mimipavilion -> +OPS+ I'm on way up.
Nijil tr'Korjata -> +Coleridge+ Korjata here.
Dacia Sandero -> ::Listens in:: Hmm
jylliene -> +med+ Acknowledged.
mimipavilion -> ::dacia:: I'm heading up to get more info. Make sure this facility is ready in case things go south.
Chirakis -> ::logs into the grid, as though the cores didn't already have access:::

Alexis McFarland -> ::takes another bite of her Blubby Wrap and a sip of Jumja Dew::
Scott Coleridge -> +Nijil+ We're about to receive a visit from droid cores claiming they want to ... talk. I need you to harden our computers as best you can.
Kallah Ramson -> Ops, start powering up the diplomatic sections. That place has to be dusty by now. Have their ship dock on the VIP airlock. Guess I need to get my fancy uniform on.
mimipavilion -> ::heads over to the others::
Nijil tr'Korjata -> +Coleridge+ Putting us on core lockdown...
Chirakis -> =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\=

Chirakis -> 3/24/17
Chirakis -> Thank you.
Chirakis -> Apparently I was so caught up in the story, I was distracted...
Chirakis -> Anyway, Captain TBS?
Alexis McFarland -> Poor Miana trapped in her dusty diplomatic room.
Tarisa -> hehe
Chirakis -> heh
Kallah Ramson -> Should take them 20 minutes or so to get here and dock. So, 20 minutes.
Chirakis -> TBS is 20 minutes. Comments for the crew?

Lawliet -> +Tarisa+ I agree, but I was wondering...how much energy would it take to create the necessary graviton pulse to disperse the cloud around Aegis. Imagine if we were to tunnel our way through it.
Jylliene -> +Nijil+ Why?
Nijil tr'Korjata -> +CnC+ It has an energy signature that is only masked with the cloak

Alexis McFarland -> Looks yummy. Is it jam?
KelsaViegnor -> ::This issue was mythological themed - she lost herself in the stories of fantastical creatures and beings of other worlds' cultures::
Lawliet -> Yes, I need a warp field specialist to look over a thought I had.
Alexis McFarland -> ::sticks a finger as well and licks:: Ooh wow yeah.
Chirakis -> Ens Eneenir> Of course, sir. I'm pretty good with that.
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> Gila> :: Walking around the commerce level, talking to people that still remain ::
Tarisa -> Miana> What does it taste like?
Lawliet -> Excellent. I wanted to know if their was a way to use one of the ship’s warp fields...let's say the Aegean and we used the remainder of our vessels to emit the graviton pulse at the Aegean, could the warp field amplify the effect?
Alexis McFarland -> Try it. It tastes like.. blueberry? Or maybe a cranberry?
mimipavilion -> ::finishes typing up a short status report and sends it to the CnC::
Chirakis -> Ens Eneenir> Amplify the effect of a graviton pulse. ::thinks hard:::
Tarisa -> Miana> ::Sticks her finger in the jar then brings it to her nose. She takes a sniff before finally tasting it.:: Yummy!
Lawliet -> If we could, we might be able to tunnel our way through the cloud instead of redirecting it.
Nijil tr'Korjata -> $ :: Orbiting the station ::
Chirakis -> Ens Eneenir> A warp field moves space around an object, so I would say it would be the reverse.
Annisha -> We need bread.

Tarisa -> ((Too bad the station doesn't have a huge deflector dish to solve all of it's problems.))
Chirakis -> Ens Eneenir> If you took the ship out and engaged a graviton pulse inside the warp field, they would probably cancel each other out.
Alexis McFarland -> Or some crackers. Do you have any in your pantry (assuming we're in Annisha's room)
Nijil tr'Korjata -> (( That's the Direct TV dish ))
Lawliet -> Any means of a using a variable?
Annisha -> Crackers? I think I have some chips
Alexis McFarland -> Chips and jam.
Chirakis -> Ens Eneenir> Or at least minimize it. And Aegean is completely powered down, sir.
mimipavilion -> ::gets up and heads to the ICU::
Chirakis -> Ens Eneenir> A variable for...?
Chirakis -> ACTION> Nei'rrh's cloak fails.

Jylliene -> Um.
Nijil tr'Korjata -> $ :: Looks around :: +CnC+ Cloak failure.. not fully aligned.
Chirakis -> Ens Eneenir> No, sir. It doesn't work that way. The warp field would contain the pulse.
Jylliene -> +Nei'rrh+ I noticed. Either get that cloak back up or power down, fast.
Nijil tr'Korjata -> $ +CnC+ Powering down... but the AQS could be an attractant
Lawliet -> ::grunts:: Is there anything we have at our disposal that could amplify the pulse?
Jylliene -> ::glances at Chirakis::
Chirakis -> Ens Eneenir> No, sir.
Dacia Sandero -> ::nods to Mimi:: The ICU patients we're out of air the longest, as they were in the most affected areas of the ship.

Cptn d'Ka -> ::hearing the exchange between doctors regarding the ICU, he excuses himself:::
Alexis McFarland -> ::dips a chip in the jam and takes a bite:: Mm... that's much better.
Jylliene -> ::realizes she can't transport him off the Nei'rrh with the station powered down::
mimipavilion -> ::thinks:: Is there a way we can help them get oxygen back into their systems without taking on more power?
Chirakis -> ACTION> The previously dissipated cloud coalesces and moves toward the station.
Lawliet -> ::turns around and looks at the various engineering displays:: Gravitons are based on natural vibrations. What we need is something more powerful than our deflectors and capable of spreading over a larger area.
Tarisa -> ::Frowns as she watches the projection.::
Chirakis -> (note: Nijil system crash)
Tarisa -> +Lawliet+ Sir, you are needed in the lab. The cloud is moving once more.
Jylliene -> Could he transport himself off and send the Nei'rrh away?
Jylliene -> ::to Chirakis::
Dacia Sandero -> We could try supplementing their oxygen with the oxygen canisters. The O2 would also be purer as well.
Lawliet -> +Tarisa+ Understood. On my way. ::to engineer:: Thank you for your help.
Lawliet -> ::heads over to the turbolift:: Science Lab One.
Chirakis -> +Nijil+ Correct the problem, Commander. The fate of the station is in your hands.
mimipavilion -> ::nods:: Let's get started with that.
Alexis McFarland -> ::dips another chip in the jam and eats it:: Very nice balance of sweet, salty and tart. ::opens up a can of Jumja Dew::
Lawliet -> ::steps off the turbolift and walks back into the lab:: Computer status.

Tarisa -> I may have a way to push back the cloud enough to delay spread and perhaps recover the Missouri and Shay.
Alexis McFarland -> Blubby's?
Annisha -> Jentela> What is that place?
Lawliet -> +Coleridge+ We're still analyzing the material. We may have a method of delaying the cloud, but that is all.
Chirakis -> ::she is still thinking about the asteroid:::
Chirakis -> ::turns to Coleridge:: Commander?
mimipavilion -> ::starts to see the first of the extra supplies arrive:: Good ::staff:: Put a case next to each of the storage closets.
Alexis McFarland -> They have burgers, and wraps and fries and stuff. It's yummy!
Tarisa -> Using rapidly vibrating graviton particles at a varying frequency we should be able to push back the cloud.
mimipavilion -> ::everyone nods::
Scott Coleridge -> +Lawliet+ I'll take it.
Dacia Sandero -> ::finishes her report and heads back out to the main Sickbay::
Tarisa -> We could use what ships we have by modifying their deflector dishes.
Lawliet -> ::to Tarisa:: Can we produce enough graviton particles to disperse the cloud entirely?
mimipavilion -> ::the staff starts placing a case of the supply's next to a storage supply closet::
Chirakis -> Commander Coleridge, something must have drawn the cloud into the asteroid for it to have been there until the Shray drilled into it and released it. Knowing the composition of these asteroids, what could that have been?
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> :: Cayne watched Gila run the shop. She spoke to customers, who seemed to delight in the fact she was discovering the smells right along with her. She was a far cry from the woman he befriended while undercover on Cardassia ::
Tarisa -> ::Shakes head.:: Not at the moment, but it should be enough for a rescue mission at the very least.
Chirakis -> ::takes a stab:: Dilithium?
Lawliet -> What about the station? If we have to expect the worse, they'll need to know it now.
Tarisa -> Miana> :;Perks up.:: Yay Blubbys! :;Tail swishing in excitement.::
Scott Coleridge -> Dilithium by itself does not usually have a power source signature, if that is what would attract this material.
Cptn d'Ka -> # ::watching the minimal screen that they are using to conserve energy::
Lawliet -> ::conducting a few simulations while they talk::
Cptn d'Ka -> # ::the team proceeds at standard spacing for extraction, using their advanced EVA equipment, but it is rough going:::
Kallah Ramson -> We still don't have a lot of knowledge about this asteroid fields past and formation.
Tarisa -> Given enough time, we might be able to produce enough. But we would need a form of containment as well.
Scott Coleridge -> It's possible the material has been present in the asteroid since the formation of this system. Alternatively, the asteroid in question might be a rogue extra-stellar object.
Tarisa -> But for now we can only stall.
Alexis McFarland -> ::assumably heading over to the food court with Miana, Annisha and her Neemah::
Chirakis -> By "the material" you refer to the cloud?
Lawliet -> Very well. +Ops+ Lawliet to Ops.
Scott Coleridge -> Well, the material that comprises the cloud, yes.
Fletcher Jackson -> +COM+ Ops here. Go ahead.
Dacia Sandero -> ::helps sort out some supplies as well::
Scott Coleridge -> It just happens to be cloud-like at the moment.
Annisha -> :: Arrives at a lively place called Bubby's ::
Scott Coleridge -> Captain Ramson, science reports they have a temporary way of halting the cloud in its tracks and perhaps shrinking it enough to rescue our ships.
Tarisa -> Miana> ::Being cheery.::
Alexis McFarland -> ::lines up in the ordering queue, perusing the menu:: Hmmm...
Kallah Ramson -> What do they need to implement it?
Chirakis -> So it could be a solid to begin with, and.... ::leaves off to listen::
Lawliet -> +Ops+ We've found a way to disperse a small, focused area of the cloud. We can use this method to mount a rescue of the Missouri and the Mining Ship. The station is another matter entirely, we'll be able to slow it down but not prevent it from coming into contact.
Fletcher Jackson -> +Lawliet+ You are on speaker, Commander. ::looks to Ramson::
Kallah Ramson -> +Lawliet+ That gets our first goal. What do you need to put this into action and how quickly?
Cptn d'Ka -> # ::the first round returns with seven survivors, who are immediately taken out of the bay and given to medical, then the second group returns with more, and on it goes:::
Lawliet -> +Ops+ We'll need every available ship to emit vibrating gravitons with their deflectors. This will disperse areas directly in front of the ships. We'll be able to get to the ships, but the station is too large.
Annisha -> I think I will have the regular
Kallah Ramson -> ::looks to Scott:: Your thoughts?
Cptn d'Ka -> # Doland> ::having difficulty keeping the ships together:: Captain, we're drifting.
Alexis McFarland -> ::orders the Blubby Burger with Cheese Combo and a Yellow Jumja Dew::
Scott Coleridge -> I think it's our best shot right now.
Alexis McFarland -> ::is handed a large cup where she has to pour the drink herself::
Tarisa -> Miana> ::Gets the same, but with a pink Jumja.::
Cptn d'Ka -> # Correct the problem, Mr. Doland. Mr Sojek, assist if necessary. Tighten that connection.
Kallah Ramson -> Then see to it.
mimipavilion -> ::near Dacia:: Oh this crazy medical life, brings back a lot of memories.
Cptn d'Ka -> # ::stands, watching the screen:::
Scott Coleridge -> ::nods:: Mr. Jackson, collect the precise deflector configurations from science and distribute them to the ships in the task force.
Dacia Sandero -> Oh yes, it sure does doesn't it? ::chuckle::
Annisha -> Jentela> I'll have.. er, whatever Annisha is having.. I think
Fletcher Jackson -> Aye, Commander. Ready to receive and forward.
mimipavilion -> ::chuckles::
Alexis McFarland -> ::carries her tray of food to an empty table::
Lawliet -> +Ops+ Relaying information to OPS now. ::relays data::
Fletcher Jackson -> :+Lawliet+ Information received. :checks the task force configurations and distributes according to configuration::
Lawliet -> ::looks to Tarisa:: Well done Tarisa.
Fletcher Jackson -> Task force confirms information received. They're ready, Captain.
Tarisa -> ::Smiles.:: Thank you, though it is still unfortunate we can not actually identify what composes this cloud.
Cptn d'Ka -> # Sojek> The line is stressed, Captain. We're moving off.
Kallah Ramson -> Prep runabouts for towing. Get the Shray and Missouri out of there the moment it's clear, in case they can't get underway themselves.
Cptn d'Ka -> # +Anastis+ Tell the team to hold position until the drift subsides.
Lawliet -> Small steps. Right now, there's lives at stake and you just made it possible to rescue them.
Alexis McFarland -> ::unwraps her Blubby Burger and takes a bite:: Ahh..
Cptn d'Ka -> # Anastis> +Team+ Hold position. I say again, hold position.
Scott Coleridge -> Station is too big ... defence grid too small. Hmm.
Tarisa -> Miana> ::Takes her seat, gets a sniff of her food.:: Yummy!
Cptn d'Ka -> # How long until the next connection? ::forced calm::
Alexis McFarland -> ::giggles and sips her drink::
Annisha -> :: Sits with everyone ::
Cptn d'Ka -> # Doland> The movement is irregular captain. There is no way to tell.
Alexis McFarland -> ::looks to see how Annisha's aunt will like it::
Tarisa -> Miana> ::Takes a bite of her burger and squeals with glee.::
Annisha -> Jentela> :: Bites into the burger :: Mmm...hm
Lawliet -> Now keep working on this, I'll be in Ops helping with the rescue effort.
Alexis McFarland -> Mmm?
Chirakis -> ::sends security teams out to assist in stockpiling and calming those who want to know why this is happening:::
Annisha -> Jentela> Well....hmm
Alexis McFarland -> Should've got the cheese.
Tarisa -> ::nods as she turns back to her console.::
Chirakis -> +Cayne+ Report.
Dacia Sandero -> ::sorts out the supplies with the med. techs:: Nice that we did get some new supplies. We did kind of need them.
Cptn d'Ka -> # How many have we brought aboard, Mr. Tan?
Cptn d'Ka -> # Tan> Medical reports 27, sir.
mimipavilion -> I know. It was long overdue.
Dacia Sandero -> Yes, for sure.
Lawliet -> ::goes through the sterilization chamber and out into the corridor::
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> +Chirakis+ All is fine on the commerce level.
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> +Chirakis+ Our new security recruit is manning that shop.
Chirakis -> +Cayne+ For the moment, put her aside. Report to the security complex and oversee the stockpiling of supplies.
Lawliet -> ::steps into a turbolift:: CnC.
Cptn d'Ka -> # Doland> We're drifting back, Commander Sojek. Prepare to tighten the connection.
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> +Chirakis+ Understood... rumors of that storm coming?
Scott Coleridge -> +Tarisa+ Coleridge to Tarisa.
Cptn d'Ka -> # Sojek> Ready.
Chirakis -> +Cayne+ An excellent reason.
mimipavilion -> ::sees the last of the crates come in:: Good we have everything, if we go dark.
Tarisa -> ::Perks up.:: +Scott+ Tarisa here.
Cptn d'Ka -> # ::returns to the command chair, more relaxed, watching the teams resume exfil:::
Scott Coleridge -> +Tarisa+ I have a question. You said that this substance seems attracted to power sources, right? And that the bigger the power source, the more it's attracted?
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> :: Makes his way to the security complex, and as he did so Gila waved at him from afar ::
Lawliet -> ::steps onto the CnC::
Chirakis -> ::turns and nods to Lawliet:::
Tarisa -> ::Nods.:: +Scott+ Yes. It seems to prefer matter/antimatter reactions, but it will not turn away from other sources.
Kallah Ramson -> Has the fleet made the needed modifications yet?
Lawliet -> ::walks over to Chirakis:: How is everything proceeding Captain?
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> :: She likely knew he was her the entire time ::
Chirakis -> As well as can be expected. Commander Cayne is in charge on station.
Fletcher Jackson -> ::turns:: Captain Ramson, the task force reports ready.
Scott Coleridge -> +Tarisa+ Right, that preference for matter-antimatter reactions is intriguing. So I wonder, if we took those potential sources away ... the only other energy source would be the sun.
Chirakis -> ::slight smile as she hears the commander talk to Tarisa::
Tarisa -> +Scott+ It is possible it could be attracted to it.
Kallah Ramson -> Ops, confirm all stations ready and prepare to proceed.
Chirakis -> ::the simplest solutions are often overlooked:::
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> :: Enters the security complex ::
Lawliet -> ::nods:: You ever feel like Aegis is caught in a never ending "monster of the week" scenario?
Scott Coleridge -> +Tarisa+ We wouldn't even have to shut down all of our power, just the M/ARA systems. The sun's fusion reaction dwarfs anything our reactors puts out.
Alexis McFarland -> ::eating her burger, and crispy fries that she dips in her ketchup::
Fletcher Jackson -> Aye, ma'am. +All Stations+ Confirm ready status.
mimipavilion -> ::hears com:: +CnC+ Medical Ready.
Fletcher Jackson -> ::checks off medical::
Lawliet -> ::steps over to the science terminal:: Science on Standby.
Fletcher Jackson -> ::and science::
Annisha -> Jentela> Interesting... seems like this is not good for au
Kallah Ramson -> ::looks over to Scott::
Scott Coleridge -> +Tarisa+ So here's my question....
Alexis McFarland -> Yeah, it's not really. Dacia says it's not good to have it all the time.
Tarisa -> +Scott+ Yes it should work. Hopefully the cloud will disintegrate within the sun.
Scott Coleridge -> +Tarisa+ Ah, you anticipated my question.
Cptn d'Ka -> # Anastis> +d'Ka+ Captain, the last of Shray's crew is aboard. The bay is secure.
Alexis McFarland -> But once in awhile is fine.
Scott Coleridge -> +Tarisa+ Can you think of a way to test that hypothesis to confirm it as opposed to, say, the cloud sinking into the core of the sun and accelerating its fusion process in a runaway chain reaction that triggers a premature nova? I would rather not cause the destruction of this star system as a byproduct of our solution.
Cptn d'Ka -> # +Anastis+ Very well. Seal the bay, pressurize, and have medical report status as soon as possible.
Cptn d'Ka -> # +Anastis> Aye, Captain.
Fletcher Jackson -> +Engineering+ Report ready status.
Tarisa -> +Scott+ However, there is the gamble that it could only strengthen it. ::Ponders.:: I can try to make a simulation, but since we do not know the composition of the cloud, it will be a lot of guess work.
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> :: Working with supplies ::
Fletcher Jackson -> +Security+ Report ready status.
Scott Coleridge -> +Tarisa+ That would probably be better than attempting to create a small star within the hazard lab and testing on that.
Tarisa -> +Scott+ Agreed.
Tarisa -> ::Works on setting up a simulation.::
Kallah Ramson -> Ops, is the board green?
Lawliet -> ::monitoring the clouds advancement::
Fletcher Jackson -> Almost, Captain.  Engineering and Security have yet to report.
Nijil tr'Korjata -> +Fletcher+ Engineering has been informed of the situation and are making preparations. Right now we are mostly doing routine maintenance.
Cptn d'Ka -> # Mr. Doland, distance us from Shray if possible.
Fletcher Jackson -> +Eng+ Understood.
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> +Jackson+ Security is ready with no current high demand issues
Fletcher Jackson -> The board is green, Captain.
Alexis McFarland -> ::finishes her meal, and relaxes a bit::
Fletcher Jackson -> Task force reported ready on your command.
Kallah Ramson -> Proceed.
Annisha -> Seems pretty calm..
Fletcher Jackson -> Aye, Sir. ::sends out the order to proceed:::
Scott Coleridge -> ::turns his attention back to the rescue operation::
Alexis McFarland -> For now. But I can see why school was cancelled today.
Chirakis -> =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\=
Chirakis -> =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\=
Chirakis -> Thank you.
Chirakis -> 3/3/17
Chirakis -> Well played. TBS, Captain?
Kallah Ramson -> We can pick up from there, with the fleet engaging their dispersion field.
Chirakis -> Comments for the crew?
Kallah Ramson -> I like the idea of sending the cloud into the sun. It should be noted we are only loosely associated with the system. Remember it takes half a day at medium warp to get to the planet.
Chirakis -> Comments or questions from the crew?
Chirakis -> Seeing none, crew *dismiss*

Sky Harbor Aegis | 24 February 2017

25 February 2017 - 10:35 PM

=/\= Aegis Mission Brief 2/24/17=/\=
=/\=24 February 2388=/\=

TBS was 60 minutes.  The time is 1020 hours (10:20 am) Aegis Local. The mining ship Shray and the USS Missouri have gone silent in Sector 119. A probe from Missouri indicates they are adrift in a debris field next to Shray. They might have been affected by a substance that dampens sensors and drains power.  Science is analyzing samples and readings from Aegis' probe.  Meanwhile, the debris field is spreading toward Aegis.

Kallah Ramson -> I think the clock we need to be worried about is how much life support Missouri has left.
Cptn d'Ka -> # Sojek> Several hours, Captain. Given the nature of this vessel, it has the capability of fending off such intrusions. Also, we have backup in the cargo bay.

mimipavilion -> +Dacia+ Mimi to Dacia
KelsaViegnor -> There are times when small luxuries like this are refreshing lifts to the spirit.
Dacia Sandero -> +Mimi+ Yes, Dacia here. Go ahead.
Tarisa -> +CnC+ I recommend powering down the station, shutting down everything non-essential. I have reason to believe the station is causing the cloud to head this way.

Kallah Ramson -> ::Ops:: Nothing beyond navigational warnings for now.
KelsaViegnor -> ::nods to Cayne::

Jylliene -> Yes ma'am.
Chirakis -> ::nods, and her arms cross, the worst feeling is helplessness::
mimipavilion -> What about one of the Aegean-class ships?
Scott Coleridge -> An asteroid seemed to do a good job containing it.
Scott Coleridge -> Also, do we have evidence that this is a lifeform?
Chirakis -> ::turns to Coleridge::
Kallah Ramson -> ::Mimi:: Your thoughts?
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> :: To Kelsa :: Are there any multi-scented items meant to represent a location?
Tarisa -> ::Looks to Mimi.:: Our probes seemed to have little energy drain in them. It is possible the cloud prefers a larger matter/anti-matter power source.
KelsaViegnor -> Several. Is there anything you have in mind? ::gestures toward one wall and moves in that direction::
Tarisa -> ::Looks to Scott.:: Sadly, no. Since sensors can't seem to have much effect. It is simply a hypothesis.

Kallah Ramson -> Priority one is rescuing Missouri and Shray. Second, protecting Aegis before it spreads to us. Both can be achieved by finding a way to contain, counteract, or shield from its effects.
Tarisa -> Miana> ::Turns her attention to Annisha's neemah.::
Annisha -> Jentela> Hmm, well, there are large stretches of fields as far at the eye can see.
KelsaViegnor -> Does it have wooded areas, or more arid? Mountainous, or meadowed? Gardens?
Annisha -> Jentela> Most of the planet is unclaimed.
Alexis McFarland -> oooh
Annisha -> Jentela> Our farm is just like it was on ch'Rihan
Cptn d'Ka -> # Doland> Captain, another bump, and we will be within striking distance with the grapple. The bay doors won't be exactly lined up, but enough to get the crew through.
Annisha -> Oh, the spire?
Cptn d'Ka -> # ::nod:: Very well. Mr. Tan, alert Col Anastis. Tell the bay chief to clear the bay of all but essential personnel.

Annisha -> Jentela> We can speak to Aegis directly

Scott Coleridge -> ::Chirakis:: Just thinking out loud that this wasn't a problem until the Shray released the substance from the asteroid.
KelsaViegnor -> ::nods:: Ah, very good. Let's see... ::looks over a few bottles:: Try this one?
Scott Coleridge -> Maybe we could create some kind of … net … in front of the shipyard or Aegis and use it to capture this substance.
Chirakis -> ::ponders that:: Explain.
Jylliene -> ::nods:: Yes ma'am. ::composes message to SubCommander Jorahl::
Jylliene -> ::mumbles:: He
mimipavilion -> I'll also have some generators in medical for the surgical and labor and delivery bays in the event we need to use them.
Jylliene -> ..He'll be thrilled...
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> Cayne> :: (w) to Kelsa :: I don't know you that well... :: samples the bottle :: That does seem familiar.
Tarisa -> It is possible that since there was no energy source on the asteroid that the cloud became dormant.
Cdr Wyatt Cayne -> Cayne> :: (w) to Kelsa :: I knew this person years ago, but they don't know me, per se.
