There's a wide range of Alpha Quadrant species and some we can't identify, mostly hundreds of years old." Maryse Dubois 23-Jan-22 08:16 PM @ Some I do not recognize. Maybe we'll have enough for genetic analysis for identification. @ A couple of these are over 1000. Irene Mincine 23-Jan-22 08:18 PM @ "The ship's computer should be able to figure them out.

Maryse Dubois 23-Jan-22 08:20 PM @ ::Smirks.:: Not my first foray into forensics. But let’s do make sure everything is ready to go before we touch the other rooms. I fear what else we may find.

  12. = /\ = USS MANTICORE BRIEFING #1153, STARDATE 52201.17 = /\ = Manticore is sent to the penal colony on Gellum in the Pac sector to make a cargo exchange. The task went as expected except for a stowaway amongst the cargo. He seemed afraid with no clear direction of what he was doing. Security captured him and he is now in sickbay.

Irene Mincine 16-Jan-22 08:40 PM @ Seeing no danger, and the skeletons carefully arranged rather than simply lying everywhere, she steps into the room, waving Maryse in as well. "Yeah, you're right. It looks like a biolab. I've never seen most of these species before, and the tricorder can't identify them either..." How long have they been there? The tricorder should be able to tell that, at least. Captain Swain 16-Jan-22 08:40 PM Dr. Tyran> Don't make me send a nurse down to your quarters to keep watch. Grins I'll keep looking through your test results. Indaura Ryssan 16-Jan-22 08:40 PM @ :: Getting a picture of the pond :: William Chocox 16-Jan-22 08:41 PM William hops off the bed.

Irene Mincine 16-Jan-22 08:45 PM @ "So it's a biolab that's been sitting here for a long time. We've got no record of this planet ever being inhabited, so we should figure out who ran this place... and why they left." Close on Irene, music swells, fade to black.

  15. MISSION BRIEF: Excalibur is surveying an M-class planet in the Itarian system. Several science teams have been investigating various fun things in the boreal forest regions, while leave has been granted by Captain Swain. An unusual event occurred shipside when science officer's experiment in his quarters went awry. We left off as a bright, white flash escaped from his quarters. Are we dead? Are we alive?

Ensign Koller's room is empty, in fact it looks its been so since we left spacedock at least. There's no trace of him or his experiment. Irene Mincine 09-Jan-22 08:10 PM Irene> "Otters!" Eventually, they wind up at a little marshy area. Irene crouches among the reeds pointing to a pond about 20 meters away. There are a couple other science ensigns attentively taking notes. There are some impossibly cute creatures with black and brown fuzz that look just like Earth otters playing in the pond. William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:10 PM “Ok, I need a full scan of this room. Computer, where is Ensign Koller?” Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:11 PM Computer> There is no record of a Lieutenant (my bad) Koller assigned to the Excalibur. William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:11 PM flatly “What? Computer, confirm that a Lieutenant Koller is not on the ship.” Maryse Dubois 09-Jan-22 08:11 PM ::Kneels down.:: They do seem quite similar, don't they? I wonder if they have the same behaviors. Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:12 PM Computer> There is no record of a Lieutenant Koller assigned to the Excalibur. William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:12 PM William turns to Reynolds. “What department was he a part of?” “Let me back up. You remember talking to a Lieutenant Koller just now don’t you?” CdrMirandaHawthorne 09-Jan-22 08:13 PM Ens Reynolds> ::Blinks away the spots.:: Talking to who, sir? Irene Mincine 09-Jan-22 08:14 PM Irene smiles while the otters are frolicking as only otters can. "Convergent evolution. There are a few body shapes and profiles that seem to be... I don't want to say optimal, but work well in many environments and habitats. Crabs, for example. I guess otters are up there, too." William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:14 PM William gives Reynolds a look. “Does anyone remember why we were here?” William looks to see if his maintenance team is still here. CdrMirandaHawthorne 09-Jan-22 08:15 PM Ens Reynolds> Of course, sir. There was a power drain in this area. In these quarters. Ens Reynolds> ::Peeks inside.:: They're empty, though... Indaura Ryssan 09-Jan-22 08:15 PM :: Somewhere on the planet? :: Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:16 PM ACTION> While she's walking along Irene nearly trips over a large, unusually cut rock that she did not see before now. They hear a rumbling behind the waterfall as a doorway appears to open behind the falls and a stone archway raises up. Maryse Dubois 09-Jan-22 08:16 PM ::Nods in agreement.:: Seems so. Have you observed them using "tools?" William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:17 PM "Computer, who is assigned to these quarters?" Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:17 PM Computer> Currently these quarters are unassigned. CdrMirandaHawthorne 09-Jan-22 08:18 PM Ens Reynolds> Well, that's odd. I wonder if someone was just using them temporarily for some unauthorized experiments. ::Checks his padd and makes a few notes.:: Indaura Ryssan 09-Jan-22 08:18 PM (Indaura has been looking and cataloging plants, etc...she noticing anything?) Irene Mincine 09-Jan-22 08:19 PM Irene is heading toward the other scientists to ask them that question when her foot hits the rock, revealing the doorway. She looks on excited, then rushes back to Maryse. "Ow! I mean, did you see that? Otters can wait, we've got a... that to explore!" Maryse Dubois 09-Jan-22 08:19 PM ::Looking at the waterfall cave entrance.:: So it seems. William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:20 PM "Computer, display power usage of these quarters for the past 24 hours." William turns to Ensign Ulrich. "Tell me how much you remember." Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:20 PM ACTION> The display reads as normal for the past 24-hours. William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:21 PM William looks at the display. "Computer, this data is wrong." Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:21 PM Computer> Would you like me to run a diagnostic? William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:21 PM "Yes." Irene Mincine 09-Jan-22 08:21 PM Irene hrms, pulling out her tricorder and pointing it at the cave. "We better inform the ship and see if they can detect anything dangerous in there, or any new power sources, or anything like that." With her other hand, she opens a channel to the ship. "Science team to Excalibur." William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:22 PM "Also, display alphabetical crew manifest starting at K." Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:22 PM Clark> +Irene+ Excalibur here. Computer> Beginning level 1 diagnostic. ACTION> It displays the crew manifest. There is no one named Koller, either first or last name.

Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:27 PM Clark> Turns around and takes his ear piece out Commander, science reports they've found some sort of... bunker on the surface. They're requesting permission to investigate further. Nothing is showing up on sensors at their location. Irene Mincine 09-Jan-22 08:27 PM Val> Val shrugs in response to Clark. "What d'ya want me to do? I'm not in charge." William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:28 PM +Ranking Onboard Science Officer+ "Chocox to Science." Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:28 PM Woddle> +Will+ Science here. Indaura Ryssan 09-Jan-22 08:29 PM Something happening on the ship? Maryse Dubois 09-Jan-22 08:29 PM Maybe this is some sort of blind. Starfleet scientists and anthropologist are fond of using this to remain hidden during studies. William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:29 PM +Woddle+ "Are there any records of a Lieutenant Koller working in the Science department of this ship?" Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:29 PM Woddle> +Will+ Who?

She flips the backpack off her shoulder and hands it to Indaura. "Sample containers for you and the rest of the team. Find anything good? No, I'm just seeing if we can check that out." Pointing to the newly-revealed cave and door behind the waterfall. William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:30 PM +Woddle+ "That would actually be much appreciated." Indaura Ryssan 09-Jan-22 08:31 PM Many creatures and plants as I have seen on other planets. I got lost in looking at them to be honest. Irene Mincine 09-Jan-22 08:31 PM Irene> Hrm. "Aren't duck blinds usually cloaked? I don't think they'd put the release down here where something could find it." Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:31 PM Woddle> +Will+ No one assigned to science aboard the Excalibur by that name. Why? CdrMirandaHawthorne 09-Jan-22 08:31 PM Ens Reynolds> ::Glances up at Chocox.:: What's wrong, sir? Who is Lt. Koller?

William turns to Reynolds. "I distinctly remember a Lieutenant Koller being in these quarters arguing with us about his power usage. There was then a bright flash and now we're here, where apparently I'm the only one that knows who this Vulcan was." Maryse Dubois 09-Jan-22 08:32 PM ::Shrugs:: Smuggling stash then? We won't know till we get in there. Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:33 PM Woddle> Looks directly into the Camera, makes a vaguely problematic gesture Engineers. It's gotta be all that time they spend near the warp drive. Irene Mincine 09-Jan-22 08:34 PM Irene grins in response to that guess. "You think like an Orion." She goes back to talking to her combadge. +Clark+ "Are we near any local powers or anything here? It could be a cache someone put here?" Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:34 PM Clark> +Irene+ We're very much in the middle of nowhere. The nearest trade route is... two weeks away at warp 7. Clark> +Irene+ There's not an occupied planet within like 30 light years. William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:35 PM "As such, I believe that I need to inform the Executive Officer and potentially get a medical exam done. And I had such a good streak going with avoiding medical. Reynolds, continue the maintenance tasks as necessary, and try not to have an engineering emergency." CdrMirandaHawthorne 09-Jan-22 08:35 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Glances up from his report to Clark, head tilted.:: Do we have anything on our sensors that shows what might be inside? Irene Mincine 09-Jan-22 08:36 PM Irene shakes her head at Maryse. "Not unless someone really wanted to hide something. I really want to know what's inside now." Maryse Dubois 09-Jan-22 08:36 PM Indeed Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:38 PM Clark> Shakes his head Nope. Not even registering, but appears to be surrounded by some fairly dense ore deposits that could be interfering with our scans. Indaura Ryssan 09-Jan-22 08:39 PM :: Leaves her containers and takes the empty ones :: The rest of us will be close to where you are now. I spotted a small pond that is bound to have life contained within. William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:40 PM +Stanton+ "Chocox to Stanton." CdrMirandaHawthorne 09-Jan-22 08:40 PM Ens Reynolds> ::Raises his eyebrows at Will.:: Uh, okay sir. Cdr Jalen Stanton> Then tell them to proceed, but be careful. Keep a transporter lock on the team, if possible. Cdr Jalen Stanton> +Will+ Stanton here. What can I do for you, Chief? Irene Mincine 09-Jan-22 08:42 PM "Sounds good, Dr. Here, take my holocamera." She undoes its neck strap, handing it over to Indaura. "Make sure you get lots of photos!" Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:42 PM Clark> Nods, puts his ear piece back in +Irene+ Commander Stanton has approved you to investigate further, but reminds you to be cautious. We will try to keep a transporter lock on you. William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:42 PM +Stanton+ "I need to talk to you and Captain Swain if that is possible. There is an...issue..." Irene Mincine 09-Jan-22 08:43 PM +Clark+ "Understood, we'll be careful." Her smile returns to Maryse. "We're good to check out the caves." Indaura Ryssan 09-Jan-22 08:44 PM :: Takes the camera :: I will take as many as memory allows.

William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:46 PM +Stanton+ "I do believe that would be for the best. I'll be up in a minute." William walks into the turbolift. Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:47 PM ACTION> The turbolift controls Look familiar but the LCARS colors are slightly different than Will remembered. William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:47 PM William rubs his eyes. "What?" William takes a closer look at the LCARS display. Irene Mincine 09-Jan-22 08:48 PM Irene starts heading for the caves, but stops. "Oh! Dr. Ryssan, would you like to investigate the cave as well? I should have asked." Indaura Ryssan 09-Jan-22 08:49 PM :: Heads down to the pond :: :: Turns and snaps a holo of Irene :: Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:50 PM ACTION> The rock pathway is very clearly not actually rock, but intended to look very, very natural. Pretty elaborate fake, imo. William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:50 PM William steps onto the bridge, looking around to see what else is different. "Commander Stanton." Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:53 PM In his ready room, sipping tea. It was a pleasant blend from the Bolian homeworld. He'd actually bothered to make real tea instead of using a replicator and was enjoying it, sprawled out on his couch Maryse Dubois 09-Jan-22 08:53 PM Someone had some attention to detail. CdrMirandaHawthorne 09-Jan-22 08:53 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Seeing Will, he rose from his chair.:: You alright, Chief? You look a bit green around the gills.

Indaura Ryssan 09-Jan-22 08:55 PM :: Arrives at the pond :: Irene Mincine 09-Jan-22 08:55 PM Irene notices and gives a smile to the holocamera. She's wearing a short-sleeve exploration uniform, a thick black belt with various survival tools, and her hair is kept tightly back. After that, she kneels down and runs her hand along the fake rock pathway. "Mm-hmm. There's no reason to make it look this real unless you're trying to fool something intelligent - animals don't care if it's rock or painted concrete." William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:56 PM William enters with Commander Stanton. "Hello Captain." Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:56 PM Smiles Come in. Tea? It's a lovely Bolian blend. Very mild. Irene Mincine 09-Jan-22 08:56 PM Val can't hide a grin very well. "Radiation. It'll get you every time." CdrMirandaHawthorne 09-Jan-22 08:57 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> None for me, sir. The Lieutenant here would like a word with us. Maryse Dubois 09-Jan-22 08:57 PM I guess we won't know for sure until we actually go inside. ::Looking over the entrance.:: Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:57 PM Wrinkles his nose and motions for them to join him in the sitting area Indaura Ryssan 09-Jan-22 08:57 PM :: Snapping shots of the pond :: Irene Mincine 09-Jan-22 08:58 PM Irene> "Mm-hmm." She climbs back to her feet. She picks up a tiny stone and chucks it through the doorway, making sure there's no traps or force fields on it their tricorders can't pick up. Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 08:58 PM ACTION> The stone skips harmlessly through the door and into the cave. William Chocox 09-Jan-22 08:59 PM William raises an eyebrow and walks over. "No thank you. Something has uh...something is off. I was with my engineers investigating power usage and an unauthorized experiment. There was a flash of light and now no one except me remembers the Lieutenant involved and...also the computers colors are off." Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 09:00 PM Looks over to Stanton I... see. (( 4.675 minute warning )) William Chocox 09-Jan-22 09:01 PM "I realize this makes me sound crazy, and I'm planning on going to medical after speaking with you and the Commander."

William Chocox 09-Jan-22 09:01 PM "A Lieutenant Koller, he was a half-Vulcan science officer." Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 09:02 PM Takes a drink of his tea I knew a Lieutenant Koller -- it’s been, twenty years though since he... well went missing in action. William Chocox 09-Jan-22 09:02 PM "Missing how?" Irene Mincine 09-Jan-22 09:03 PM "Well. Let's go inside." Irene will cautiously enter the cave...

I think he was a Vulcan too. How odd. William Chocox 09-Jan-22 09:04 PM "I have no clue what happened to me though. None of the other engineers with me remembered Lieutenant Koller." Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 09:05 PM Probably not connected. Stanton I sadly don't know the crew roster as well as I used too, but I don't remember any half-Vulcan science officers named Koller, do you? CdrMirandaHawthorne 09-Jan-22 09:05 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> No, sir. I don't recall the name. William Chocox 09-Jan-22 09:06 PM "I personally checked the roster with both the computer and myself and didn't see him, but I distinctly remember arguing with him about his power usage. He was about to blow up the power system." Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 09:08 PM ACTION> Beyond the entrance the rock face transitions to metal hallways made from a synthetic alloy, none of the components of which are found on the planet, and forged using a process that wouldn't match any records for any known species. A series of low lights flicker on, likely motion activated revealing a long, downward slope. CdrMirandaHawthorne 09-Jan-22 09:08 PM Cdr Jalen Stanton> I think a trip to medical would definitely be in order. Just to be sure. Indaura Ryssan 09-Jan-22 09:09 PM :: Scanning the contents of the pond :: Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 09:09 PM Tries not to laugh, and drinks his tea instead of making the obvious joke Agreed. Have them do a full work up. You might just be tired Will. I know you've been working hard lately, which has not gone unnoticed. In fact I was hoping to talk to Commander Stanton about this before talking to you, but I am putting in for you to be promoted to Lieutenant Commander. William Chocox 09-Jan-22 09:10 PM William blinks "I...uh...thank you sir." Captain Swain 09-Jan-22 09:11 PM Of course it will have to wait till the paperwork is official, but congratulations none the less. Now, go get yourself checked out and get some rest. ...and...

Atmospheric conditions are supportive of a wide range of life here." She's focused on her holo-camera. William Chocox 05-Dec-21 08:17 PM "Routine maintenance on the replicators. Gotta make sure everything's working properly."

Ah, I can't really blame him. He normally misses out on all the fun. Security Ensign> Oh, okay.

William starts fiddling with the replicators. Nothing serious, just hot drinks being a few degrees off, food being just a little bit off in texture. Irene Mincine 05-Dec-21 08:23 PM $ "They look just like orange gibbons." Irene's snapping away while the other ensigns on her team are taking observations. "It's great to go on a hike through here instead of crawling through caves or freezing my butt off." Captain Swain 05-Dec-21 08:26 PM $ Unusual for primates to develop in this climate though, I wonder if the hot springs are part of the reason why. William Chocox 05-Dec-21 08:29 PM William buttons up the replicators. "Have a good day Ensign." He walks out of security and back towards the turbolift to Engineering.

She considers it for a second. "We should collect samples from that, too, for chemical analysis." Captain Swain 05-Dec-21 08:34 PM $ I already assigned some of your team to that. The fungal collection is also started. Erich Jaenke 05-Dec-21 08:36 PM $ :: Indaura continued to collect her samples on her own, enjoying the calm. :: Irene Mincine 05-Dec-21 08:36 PM @ "It's my..." She catches herself before she mouths off at the captain too much and just says, "Good." William Chocox 05-Dec-21 08:38 PM William steps out of the turbolift back into Engineering.

There's always time, though. Irene Mincine 05-Dec-21 08:46 PM @ Irene sighs, knowingly. "I know your job isn't to be the principal. It still feels weird having you over my shoulder on a simple survey mission, though." Captain Swain 05-Dec-21 08:47 PM $ I am only here because I enjoy the science, Ensign, not to look over your shoulder. Irene Mincine 05-Dec-21 08:48 PM @ "That used to be Commander Hawthorne's job, I think." She goes back to snapping holo-photos, a little less nervous now. Captain Swain 05-Dec-21 08:49 PM $ If I didn't trust you with science, I have plenty of options. _Gives her a quick wink before heading off to check out something someone was waving him over for __ William Chocox 05-Dec-21 08:50 PM "Well, let's keep it that way. By the way, if security sends tickets about their replicators, put them in the low priority queue." Irene Mincine 05-Dec-21 08:53 PM @ "...I... that's... good, I think..." She tries not to think about it as the captain wanders off. "Hm. Well, at least you trust me, right?" She says to the orange gibbon, which is picking its nose. Erich Jaenke 05-Dec-21 08:56 PM $ :: She was up to her waist in fungi, figuratively speaking :: CdrMirandaHawthorne 05-Dec-21 08:57 PM Ens Reynolds> Done and done. ::Smirks.:: Though, is there a reason why they'd call about the replicators?
