USS Excalibur Sim Log - 11.10.19

MISSION BRIEF: Excalibur has joined the task force assigned to first inspect the Elasian vessels destined for Cardassian space, then participate in the escort. Engineering is working on their allotment of around 40-50 mostly destroyer and patrol ships, while science is conducting a survey of the Elasian jungles.

Indaura Ryssan: :: More furniture in her office ::

Hakran K'hal: @ :: shimmers into the jungle science camp in his tropical gear ::

William Chocox: +Random Ensign+ For the last time, do not replicate anything just to prank a coworker. I will send Ensign Torthem over there, with my express directive to start an argument on the finer points of prankery. Do not test me on this.

Irene Mincine: @ :: Irene is typing on her padd leaning against one of the more solid tent-poles. She's sweaty and has a few bug bites, but looks well enough. Her team is currently taking a meal break. ::

Cptn Swain: Lucian> ::the new chief of security was inspecting the bridge, he'd noticed that the Captain seemed to be avoiding him, but he didn't want to make too much of it. He was disappointed not to find Asher on the bridge, either. He preferred to know where the Captain was, loosely, at all times.::

Hakran K'hal: @ :: expertly flicks away an insect with his tail as he looks around ::

Maryse Dubois: ::Steps out of her office, heading down the hall to Indaura's. Rings the chime.::

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::On the bridge since the Captain was currently elsewhere, he glanced at the newcomer with a raised eyebrow.:: Chief? Finding everything in order?

Indaura Ryssan: :: yells :: Come in!

Hakran K'hal: I guess I won't mention the roast chicken I just had for lunch.

Cptn Swain: Lucian> ::Nods:: Commander.

Indaura Ryssan: :: Feeding her beetles ::

Maryse Dubois: ::Steps in.:: I was checking to see how decorating was coming. ::Looking around.::

Irene Mincine: @ "Oh, the rations aren't so bad for the first couple days. What's up?" :: Irene looks up from her padd. Valdar, Horchuk, and Tiran are sharing field rations. ::

Irene Mincine: Val> :: Is at helm, as usual. She acknowledges the newcomer and goes back to... helming. ::

Rhan K'hal: :: in the shuttle bay, keeping them on their toes ::

Indaura Ryssan: Well, the furniture is coming in.. tables for my creatures. Oh, hungry are you. :: drops something into the cage ::

Indaura Ryssan: Chair, couch, table.. coffee maker.

Hakran K'hal: The sky, or so I'm told. Thought I'd get away hovering over everyone else and join you down here.

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Cdr Jalen Stanton> Good. Glad you made it up here. Why don't you have a seat. ::As he was currently occupying the Captain's chair, he gestured to the VIP chair beside it.::

Maryse Dubois: It's coming together nicely then.

Indaura Ryssan: :: Spreads her hands along the couch's cushion :: Trying to get the softest I can fine, without causing patients to fall asleep

Irene Mincine: @ Irene> "You mean to see if I need babysitting, don't you? Everything's going fine." :: She held open the flap of the tent she was leaning against, showing him the wide array of plant, insect, rock, and soil samples they took. :: "My team has been doing great. We're collecting lots of valuable data on the unexplored jungle."

Cptn Swain: #::On the surface, drinking tea at the Federation embassy where he'd been reading over diplomatic cables.::

Maryse Dubois: I can picture a chaise longue over there. If I find a good design, I'll let you know.

William Chocox: +Ensign Torthem+ Ensign Torthem? I need you to go to ::rattles off ship name:: Mhmm, I'm expecting at least a 30 minute discussion.

Indaura Ryssan: I have to say I am a bit... :: thinking of the word :: Exciting for a patient, though really the best thing would be to never need me.

Hakran K'hal: @ If you needed babysitting I would've been down here a lot earlier. :: walks over and looks at some of the samples :: You've been busy bees. Or whatever the local equivalent is.

Indaura Ryssan: Now if it's the Captain I think my beetles will be nervous.

Irene Mincine: @ :: Irene smiles, watching him go over the samples. They're a mix of jungle life. :: "The Elasians call them paralati. An important part of the ecosystem."

Maryse Dubois: ::Smirks.:: Have you begun to open your schedule yet?

Cptn Swain: Lucian> ::Takes his position on the bridge, looking over the status reports. With so many ships in orbit the were on heightened alert.::

Indaura Ryssan: I will send out a general mail, but I should seek out potential patients

Hakran K'hal: Find anything out of the ordinary yet? I'm sure the Elasians would love to hear about a new species at least, since it seems they got bored exploring the same old stuff, having not bothered much with this area.

Maryse Dubois: ::Nods.::

Indaura Ryssan: Maybe a certain Chief Medical Officer. How is your mental wellbeing?

Irene Mincine: @ :: Irene points to a rack of insect jars against the tent wall. :: "These are all uncatalogued in the reference guide I got from the planetary data net."

Maryse Dubois: :;Smirks.:: Never better. Actually much better since our extended leave.

Cptn Swain: Lucian> ::Glances down to the commander.:: We have a request from the flagship, sir.

Indaura Ryssan: Same here. I connected with family I've not seen in a while. Large family.

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Looks up from his report.:: What sort of request?

Rhan K'hal: :: expressing some annoyance at the haphazard way some equipment crates have been stacked :: Being busy is no excuse for putting them up so they could fall on someone's head if I sneezed too hard, let alone something bumps the ship.

Hakran K'hal: Good! They will look forward to you report. Probably more than I will since they'd assign someone to it who'd understand it more than I do. :: amused ::

Indaura Ryssan: Even some lost romance... well, not lost, just abandoned.

Maryse Dubois: Oh?

Cptn Swain: Lucian> The Yalta is asking if they can transfer some patients to us. They're having some sort of EPS disruption.

Irene Mincine: @ :: Irene nods. :: "We've spent most of today in the analysis tent running basic genetic scans on things. The team's happy to get out of the heat for a few hours, that's for sure. How much longer are you letting us stay?"

Indaura Ryssan: Someone I :: smiles :: was attracted to during my medical studies. Never went very far, and he's not one of my co-husbands, but... it was enlightening on what could have been.

Irene Mincine: Val> :: Perks up hearing about a ship with problems. ::

Hakran K'hal: @ Until someone on the command staff says we're done or the Elasians say thank you very much buhbye now. So long as you're still getting results.

Indaura Ryssan: It's the reason I lengthened my hair. He thought it a good idea, reminded him of years ago.

William Chocox: ::continues looking over reports::

Cptn Swain: Lucian> Nothing major, but they have a few patients that they're worried about.

Irene Mincine: @ Irene> "All right. How are things up on the ship?"

William Chocox: ((I'm an expert in EPS systems.))

Rhan K'hal: :: having successfully managed to impart the importance of safety, and getting the equipment re-stacked, takes his leave and heads out ::

Indaura Ryssan: I never asked Doctor, any husbands?

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Cdr Jalen Stanton> I don't see why not. I'm sure our medical crew can handle whatever they send over. It is rather quiet down there. Send them an affirmative and ask if they need assistance with repairs. I'll inform medical of incoming.

Indaura Ryssan: If not you'd be a fine catch, even on Denobula.

Indaura Ryssan: :: goes to check on her other creatures

Hakran K'hal: @ Hectic. Harried engineers running back and forth between the transporter rooms, security looking like someone installed duranium rods into their lower GI tracts, Rhan going between cajoling and barking at the various operations staff.

Maryse Dubois: ::Shakes head.:: No no. I don't plan to get tied down just yet.

Rhan K'hal: :: pops up onto the bridge ::

Cptn Swain: Lucian> ::Nods:: I'll inform the Yalta.

Irene Mincine: @ Irene> :: Laughs. :: "So you're glad to be down here in the heat. I know I am compared to that."

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: ACTION> Medical receives a priority one alert that they will soon be receiving patients from the Yalta in need of medical care.

Indaura Ryssan: :: Continues as she talks into a cage :: If you ever find yourself involved with two males at once, let me know.

Hakran K'hal: @ Yeah, especially when they send scan results over to science thinking it might be something weird, when 100% of the time so far it's been an equipment malfunction. And *they're* the engineers. They really threw some green crew at us, and I don't mean Orions.

Maryse Dubois: Ha! I'll think out it. ::gets the call.:: Oh. Looks like I get to test some new equipment.

Maryse Dubois: ::Heads out to main sickbay. Has her team prep.::

Indaura Ryssan: If you need a hand call me

Irene Mincine: @ Irene> "I know what you mean. Ensign Tiran's been complaining nonstop ever since we got to the surface. At least Horchuk is doing okay. They're both straight out of the academy."

Rhan K'hal: :: gets the update from Ensign Obee at Ops on the goings on, and then heads over to mission ops and logs in ::

Maryse Dubois: ::Nods.:: It shouldn't get crazy, at least I wouldn't think.

Hakran K'hal: @ So what's your plan of attack for the rest of the day?

Irene Mincine: @ "Well, if I don't know when I'm going to go back, we probably shouldn't collect too many more samples. I think we're going to keep analyzing the ones that we've got."

Hakran K'hal: @ Exactly what I didn't want to hear. :: a pause :: Because that means I'm of no use whatsoever unless you need me to brainlessly wave a sensor wand over something.

Irene Mincine: @ :: Irene hrms. :: "There was another spot I wanted to check out. It's near what Ensign Valdar thinks is a small meteor impact site from a couple thousand years ago. It deposited some foreign minerals so the soil composition is a different from the surrounding area. Iridium, yttrium, stuff like that."

William Chocox: ::sees another report:: I swear...did Miranda have to deal with such shenanigans?

Rhan K'hal: Ens Obee> +Sickbay+ Bridge to sickbay, Yalta initiating transport.

Hakran K'hal: @ That I know something about.

Maryse Dubois: +Bridge+ We are ready.

Irene Mincine: @ :: Irene adjusts some of the sample containers. :: "I figured you'd be excited. It's about 600 meters to the northeast if you feel like coming along."

Rhan K'hal: Ens Obee> :: verifies the authenticity of incoming transporter stream as the Yalta transports over the patients ::

Hakran K'hal: @ Lead the way.

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Glances to the Ensign at Ops as the transport is initiated.:: I want files on those patients as soon as you can get them from the Yalta, Ensign.

Maryse Dubois: ::Watches as patients arrive.::

Irene Mincine: @ :: Irene collects her sample collection supplies into a backpack. :: "OK. We haven't found anything big or threatening out here, so this should be all you need." :: She tosses a can of insect repellent to Hak and heads out to gather her team. :: "I'm gonna go rally the troops."

Rhan K'hal: :: gets a call from TR 2 that the issue with the buffers has popped up again :: +TR2+ Go offline and get some of those engineers to actually fix it this time instead of banging it indiscriminately with a wrench. I'll reroute the planned transports out.

Rhan K'hal: Ens Obee> Aye, Commander.

Hakran K'hal: @ :: bends an ear sideways at the can after catching it ::

Irene Mincine: @ :: Irene seems much happier being able to practice her specialty than having to deal with the temporal crap, that's for sure. She gathers up the science team and then goes to get Hak. :: "Come on, lieutenant, daylight's burning."

Rhan K'hal: Ens Obee> :: transfers the medical files to sickbay, and the personnel files with the doctors notes to Stanton - because doctor/patient confidentiality isn't his to break ::

Hakran K'hal: @ Yes ma'am. :: more amused ::

Maryse Dubois: ::Her and her team begins treating patients.::

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: # Ensign Reynolds> +Chocox+ Ah... sir? This is Reynolds on inspection team three. We've... I think we found something that you need to take a look at. Can you beam over?

Irene Mincine: @ :: Irene is so focused on the task that she doesn't even notice her slight breach of protocol. Oh well. They head off through the thick Elasian jungle. :: "Try not to step on that, it's a pretty nasty snake. Not poisonous, but Valdar will tell you it itches like nothing else. And these vines are surprisingly thick, and..." :: She goes on and on and on. ::

William Chocox: +Reynolds+ Understood, I'll be over in a bit. May I ask what this is?

Hakran K'hal: @ :: tail swishing to act as a rear insect shield, he listens to Irene go on and on without complaint ::

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Starts looking over the personnel files, which he also forwards to security. It never hurt to be prepared.::

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: # Ensign Reynolds> +Chocox+ We *think* it might be some sort of power induction tied into the main grid, but... looks like something of a hack job. Could be something else entirely. We're not sure.

Rhan K'hal: :: eavesdropping on the various calls coming in from the engineers, it is his job unless it's specifically encrypted - then it's just fun - his ears perk up listening to Reynolds ::

William Chocox: +Reynolds+ Ok, thank you for letting me know. ::grabs his toolbox:: +Stanton+ Chocox to Stanton.

Irene Mincine: Val> "What's up?" :: Looking to Rhan. Nothing escapes her notice. ::

Cptn Swain: << 3 MINUTE WARNING >>

Rhan K'hal: :: looks down at Val :: One of the engineers... :: stops as Will calls in ::

Indaura Ryssan: :: Lying on her couch ::

Rhan K'hal: :: points to the ceiling like "here it come" ::

Hakran K'hal: @ I may have to turn you over to the Elasians as a tour guide.

Irene Mincine: @ :: Ensign Tiran catches up with Hakran. He's a stocky human with a black crew-cut, drenched in sweat. Irene is still blabbing. :: Tiran> "Sir, I request reassignment from this, this hellhole. I'm a laboratory botanist, not a field researcher. I've never been anywhere this hot!" :: He seems like a real complainer. ::

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Cdr Jalen Stanton> +Chocox+ Stanton here. Go ahead.

Irene Mincine: Val> :: Nods. :: "Say no more."

William Chocox: +Stanton+ Ensign Reynolds and their team have found something that they feel I need to take a look at. I'm going to transport over to the ship their on with my toolkit.

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Cdr Jalen Stanton> +Chocox+ Very well. Keep me informed.

William Chocox: +Stanton+ Acknowledged. ::walks into the turbolift to the transporter room::

Hakran K'hal: @ While I appreciate the sentiment, Ensign, as a fellow lab denizen, you're reporting to Ensign Mincine on this away team. Jump over of the chain of command again and you'll be in a hotter place than this.

Cptn Swain: ...and...

Irene Mincine: @ :: Tiran looks disappointed. :: Tiran> "Yes, sir..." :: He grumbles and goes back to walking with Valdar and Horchuk.

Hakran K'hal: @ :: speeds up to be even with Irene, says just loud enough for her to hear :: Break him in, or break him off.

Indaura Ryssan: :: drifts off to sleep ::
