USS Excalibur Sim Log - 01.05.20

MISSION BRIEF: The Command team is returning from a briefing about the USS Yalta about the situation, everything else is suspiciously normal.


Cptn Swain: BEGIN SIN

Cptn Swain: BEGIN SIM

Cptn Swain: BEGIN SIM


William Chocox: ((Ithene's not here to help William do that.))

Cptn Swain: ::Shimmers back aboard the Excalibur, frowning::

Indaura Ryssan: :: Reading over profiles of the crew... lots to read ::

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Throws a glance at Swain as he steps down off the transporter.:: Not the best of circumstances, is it?

Irene Mincine: :: Irene is in her science lab, reading over a stack of padds with info on the Sheliak. ::

Cptn Swain: ::Shakes his head:: I had hoped that whatever curse had been placed on the ship was broken by this being a different ship. I was, apparently, mistaken.

William Chocox: ::is down in Engineering, having finished up his conversation with Commander Latara::

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::He chuckled despite himself and headed into the corridor for the lift.:: How much will you tell the senior staff?

Irene Mincine: Val> :: Val appears from the bridge's other turbolift and takes her seat at helm after a couple hours downtime. ::

Cptn Swain: ::Following:: How much do you think we should tell them?

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::He blew out a breath.:: Too much could be dangerous to the mission. I'd say... the bare minimum until we're in the field.

Cptn Swain: ::Nods:: I agree. Science can stay busy with prepping for a mapping mission.

Irene Mincine: Irene> "Computer, what time is it?" :: The computer replies. :: "Oh crap! I'm supposed to cover a shift up there!" :: She dashes for the turbolift, hopefully making it up to the bridge before anyone notices there's nobody at Science. ::

Cptn Swain: ::Orders the lift to the bridge:: There's trading station on the edge if the expanse, if my memory is right. Privately owned and operated. Should be a good base of operations.

Indaura Ryssan: :: She was both looking at appointments to make and what open hours to consider ::

William Chocox: ::looks over at the parts as he continues to parse them.::

Cptn Swain: Once the formal orders come in, we can go ahead and get underway. It's at least a few weeks at cruising speed.

Cptn Swain: Have Rhan secure any supplies he thinks we'll need from the Elasians before we do. ::Sighs::

Cptn Swain: Did Miranda warn you about this ship?

Indaura Ryssan: :: Sips her tea ::

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::He laughed again.:: Ah... somewhat, sure. Call it a professional courtesy. It was more a crew briefing than anything. The Excalibur has an interesting history.

Irene Mincine: :: Irene pops out of turbolift number 2, but catches her foot in the threshold between it and the bridge while dashing out. She takes a spill and padds go flying all over the place. ::

Cptn Swain: Remind me to tell you about how I got this command in the first place sometime.

Cptn Swain: ::Exits onto the bridge as that happens

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Pauses outside the turbolift with a glance over at Mincine.:: Alright, there?

Irene Mincine: Irene> "Yeah, I'm-- Captain! Commander!" :: She pops up to her feet with a sheepish look on her face. :: "Just... uh... you know, getting some exercise in!" :: She started picking up the padds from the floor. ::

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::He quickly moved to help, stooping to pick up Irene's data padds.:: Some of these are for me, I hope?

William Chocox: ::pulls up some papers that the Commander had recommended to him:: These are absolutely confusing, even with the annotations.

Irene Mincine: Irene> :: Nod nod nod. :: "I collated some diplomatic data and wrote some summaries for you, yeah. I didn't have time to do much before I had to come back up here."

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Ens Reynolds> ::Glances over Will's shoulder.:: Maybe turn it upside down?

Cptn Swain: ::Smirks over:::

William Chocox: ::jumps, before doing so:: Huh...that does make more sense.

Cptn Swain: Well, once we have our formal orders. Move ahead, we'll have a briefing once we get underway.

Cptn Swain: I'll be in my ready room.

Irene Mincine: Val> :: Val, meanwhile, is thinking she should have stayed in bed after watching all this. ::

Cptn Swain: Rex> ::Makes an appearance in engineering.::

William Chocox: ::looks up:: Hello?

Cptn Swain: Rex> Chief.

William Chocox: Chief. What brings you down here?

Indaura Ryssan: :: thinks deeply ::

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Glances at Irene's data padds, stacking them neatly in his large hands. He tilted his head toward the science station.:: Let's get you organized over there.

Cptn Swain: Rex> Apparently we've been ordered to send the device to the Yalta so the big brains back at home can look into it more. ::Bites his lips::

William Chocox: What?

William Chocox: ::blinks::

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Ens Reynolds> ::Slinks off to hide at the appearance of the security chief.::

Cptn Swain: Rex> ::Hands him a PADD::

William Chocox: ::looks down at it:: This is absolute garbage.

William Chocox: I was starting to make progress.

Irene Mincine: "Yes, sir." :: This was the time to be a good subordinate. She wasn't -physically- intimated by Stanton, but she was intimidated from a -can make your life hell- standpoint in a way she wasn't with Miranda. She got her station all set up again. ::

Cptn Swain: Rex> I can understand your concerns.

William Chocox: ::gives him a look::

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Spreading the recovered data padds on the desk, he started sorting through them to see which reports were on what to see what might pertain to him.::

William Chocox: But fine. It's over here. ::motions to it::

Irene Mincine: Irene> :: It was all stuff about the Sheliak that she'd been ordered to collect a few hours ago. She'd done a lot of work in that time and it seemed her diplomatic background helped as much as her analytical skill. ::

Cptn Swain: Rex> ::Holds his hands up:: My team will be down in a but to pick it up. Would be a shame if, it weren't here when they came, ::Winks::

William Chocox: Ah, yes, a dear shame.

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: (( -gasp - ))

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: (( Miranda would be horrified. ))

Cptn Swain: (( I won't tell her if you don't ))

Cptn Swain: Rec> ::Straightens his uniform:: Well, as I said, they'll be down in a bit.

Cptn Swain: Rex> . ::Grins again and heads towards the lift::

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Throws her a sidelong glance.:: You compiled all of this information in only a few hours?

William Chocox: Understood.

Irene Mincine: :: Irene smiles a bit proudly, sensing a little disbelief. :: "Yes, sir. I'm pretty sure the replicator ran out of raktajino by the end."

Cptn Swain: ((4 minute warning ))

William Chocox: ::waits until Rex is gone before he starts grabbing parts to hide them::

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Cdr Jalen Stanton> Very impressive. ::Slides the padds her way.::

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Ens Reynolds> ::Pops over to help Chocox.:: Did I hear that right?

Irene Mincine: :: Irene beams, collecting the padds at her station. :: "Thank you. Any more info you need, just ask."

William Chocox: That we have only a little bit of time to hide all of this? Yes.

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Ens Reynolds> Oh wow, wow, wow.

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: Ens Reynolds> ::A bit frantic as he grabs a tote to collect some of the smaller pieces.::

William Chocox: Yes, wow, wow, wow, now help me hide this.

William Chocox: ::starts carrying bigger pieces away::


Cptn Swain: PAUSE SIM
