  1. USS REPUBLIC MISSION BRIEFING 51505.04 - Season 23 The crew continues to search through the samples has broken up into teams, each working to find a cure, and helping the incoming ships from Starfleet to give us a hand doing so. Will and Christina have found one of the Lab Coated Lizards that has offered to help in return for helping him change back as well. Meanwhile, Holly has now terrorized the crew of the Lexington with her holo-image of Captain Kwai, in all her giant Spider-wasp glory.

We thought he was dead after the Breen attack. Then one day, he was there in my lab...asking me to help him with a project Heather Jamieson -> :: Scans and moves a bit closer to Kwai :: STSF_BluRox -> !@#$%$^&&*()> Dr Hentris> ::turns to Bauer:: You are lucky they didn't.

I will need you to work on those records and try to cross reference them with those that we’re found below. Those records will be needed to try to reverse if possible what's been done to them Heather Jamieson -> Let's give it a go..

LtCmdrRobinson -> ((I can hear blus dice cackling right now)) Ayumu Kasuga -> ((Ahh, is that was it is? Sounded like thunder) Heather Jamieson -> The area we had her in was too confining, we are moved her to a larger and perceptively larger holding area. We need to go there now to our little cage. Capt Rian Kwai -> ::now she knows something is wrong as she didn't move here by her own power, frantically looks about then starts to run, looking for an exit:: STSF_BluRox -> You do realize that the medical force field was the safest place for her to be. The holodeck has much more surface area, so m any places for a weak point to be found and exploited. And how are you going to work on her in there now that you've set her loose? She's still intelligent, she can think. she' STSF_BluRox -> may still know how to override the holodeck safeties and lockouts ACTION: The security shuttle has returned to the ship Ayumu Kasuga -> Ah. ::Monitors the shuttle's return:: STSF_BluRox -> @!#$$%^&*&^() Dr Hentrik> I'm not sure, I'll have to look at the files to see what batch she was exposed to and her mutation path Heather Jamieson -> There's risk in helping her yes.

She’s in your native world, as it were.

Heather Jamieson -> ((yep, should have kept the buffer a spinnin')) LtCmdrRobinson -> We can always bring up some of your coworkers to assist you. But anything will help.

Yikes) August Jax Robinson -> ((But that isn't *her* type of environment... that the Bug in her type:: Christina_Nickles -> ((UT OH))| Ayumu Kasuga -> ((Like an ant farm?

LtCmdrRobinson -> ::arrives in medical:: This is our medical area, and our holding area where we keep her is...empty? August Jax Robinson -> ::Glances at Heather:: you are a Science officer.... right? Christina_Nickles -> Where is she?? STSF_BluRox -> (to be fair to Heather, science is a wide range of disciplines..) STSF_BluRox -> Dr Hentrik> Where is your specimen? Heather Jamieson -> (Right, I work with star maps, so I could have placed her there) Ayumu Kasuga -> ::Oblivious to all the drama downstairs, she begins the cross-referencing process of all of the different patients:: LtCmdrRobinson -> ::looks around but doesn’t see any dead bodies:: +Blu+ Boss, did someone move our Wasp Captain or is she buzzing around the ship eating people right now?

STSF_BluRox -> (::facepalm::: the worst place to be!!) Christina_Nickles -> I agree Sir. Heather Jamieson -> If anything goes wrong she will be beamed back to where she was. LtCmdrRobinson -> +blu+ And I wasn’t notified ahead of time?! We had a containment plan that is not being followed here. Christina_Nickles -> :: hears Blu and heads for the holodecks:: STSF_BluRox -> +Will+ Your wife is the acting XO, I would assume she should have this under control, please follow up with her, as I’m meeting the Lexington and a few of the other ship's captains that have joined us Heather Jamieson ->:: enter the holodeck, only to enter a small room, sealed, surrounding the entrance :: Ayumu Kasuga -> (Lucy! You have some 'splaining to do!) LtCmdrRobinson -> Nickles, I want all the areas around the holodeck, and the deck above and below sealed off. I want patrols in those areas, constantly. Christina_Nickles -> Aye sir Heather Jamieson -> :: Gets a pair of binoculars, looks for Kwai-oid :: LtCmdrRobinson -> ::starts heading that way with Nickles, bauer and the Lizard Doc:: STSF_BluRox -> (two minute warning...a bit late..wrap up last words) Ayumu Kasuga -> Hm. ::Matching up medical records with Starfleet files:: STSF_BluRox -> (would not binoculars be better off in field or woods, have you ever been in a cave?) lol August Jax Robinson -> ::follows heather in:: Capt Rian Kwai -> :;stalking the area now:: Christina_Nickles -> :: :: calls to several security teams giving the orders o=and locations to report:: Heather Jamieson -> (These are space binoculars from the future) LtCmdrRobinson -> (lol) nhepner42 -> ::patrolling the area:: Heather Jamieson -> Well, she's there.. can't tell if she's any calmer. STSF_BluRox -> Dr Hentrik> What is all the fuss about. What species did they let loose in here? One of my fellow lizards? I was told you had a doctor up here. Or one of the mugato-mix? Heather Jamieson -> From what I saw I think she still wanted to eat you or both of us. LtCmdrRobinson -> Oh nothing much, just your run of the mill Spider-wasp Queen. August Jax Robinson -> shouldn't you have used her home world environment, A place that would reminder her of Kwai.. and good feelings? STSF_BluRox -> Dr Hentrik> WHAT!!? Christina_Nickles -> YES Heather Jamieson -> Who is she now, Woman? Or insect. LtCmdrRobinson -> ::sees security teams putting up more forcefields in the corridors surrounding the holodeck, passing through them:: Heather Jamieson -> These caves structures are larger than what we left.. STSF_BluRox -> DR Hentrik> No..you didn't!? I've changed my mind. Take me back to the planet now.....I want nothing to do with this, No way, I can't do anything about that, that was his "Special Project" we were not even allowed to look at her afterwards, we were not worthy August Jax Robinson -> She is Kwai, our friend. She needs our help, not a science class lesson LtCmdrRobinson -> You can look at her all you want. No one is here to tell you no. Heather Jamieson -> We can change the environment if needed Commander./ Christina_Nickles -> You said you would help. You are just as worthy as we are She needs your help. STSF_BluRox -> Dr Hentrik> Don't you understand...she is like the ultimate killing machine? He's mixed the most vile, vicious and evil types of Hymenoptera and Arachnids knows in the Galaxy into her DNA. Heather Jamieson -> I was told I should teach once.. August Jax Robinson -> ::nods:: I am ready when you are LtCmdrRobinson -> Well see you are helping already. Christina_Nickles -> Good then you know what needs to be extracted. STSF_BluRox -> Dr Hentrik> If she's not kept under the right dose of the long lasting psychtropic drugs until she's ready for the reversal, she's going to go mad and kill us all. when was her last dose? LtCmdrRobinson -> Also, *I* am the ultimate killing machine, she might be 2nd place. I have a coffee mug that actually says I am. STSF_BluRox -> Dr Hentrik> no..we will die....

  2. Republic: USS REPUBLIC MISSION BRIEFING 51504.27 - Season 23 The crew has been frantically sorting through the recovered data and records to help to restore our mutated crew members, along with the approximatly 1700 confined within the facility that were further along than a simple transporter transfer of their correct DNA structure from Starfleet records. We continue to see what we can do for them... ~~~Begin Sim~~~ ACTION:: Bridge sensors show signatures approaching on long range sensors Ayumu Kasuga -> ::Sorting through the data in the Lab:: STSF_BluRox -> ACTION: Acting Ops> ::turns to Blu:: Sir, we have several Star Fleet ships approaching and requesting orbital coordinates LtCmdrRobinson -> ::has no idea how to help with science stuff so he is keeping out of it:: nhepner42 -> ::organizing papers into two piles: crap and might be helpful:: Ayumu Kasuga ->::Sends DNA stuff and anything medical to Heather`s console:: STSF_BluRox -> Ops....see how many there are, get the medical and science ships into a geosynchronous orbit, and tell them to please contact our security before anyone goes down. I don't want any of them accidently beaming into tha troom full of wasps STSF_BluRox -> (Hi Tory, we just got started) Heather Jamieson -> Ah, more data coming in. The computer is taking on large datasets. STSF_BluRox -> (hi Christina, we're just getting started) Heather Jamieson ->I'm not sure if the transporters can be used or a more traditional, longer-term solution will be necessary. Christina_Nickles -> ((hi thanks)) Ayumu Kasuga -> Easier said than done. STSF_BluRox -> Ops, you have the bridge, I'm stopping down to see LtCmdr Knight. STSF_BluRox -> +Will+ Will you please bring your team and meet me in medical please? LtCmdrRobinson -> Well cant we use the transporters in stages, instead of doing it once. Reverse the process in smaller steps, cure them a little at a time? STSF_BluRox -> :: exits the bridge and heads to the lift:: Ayumu Kasuga ->Ahh. This stuff makes my head hurt. ::holds head:: STSF_BluRox -> +Ayumu+ Have you and Heather found anything of note in those stacks of data that could assist Tory? Heather Jamieson -> Maybe, or at least part of the way, but each approach has risks. Ayumu Kasuga -> +Blu+ Yes, we have several petabytes` worth of data which we are currently analyzing. LtCmdrRobinson -> Nickles, looks like boss wants us in sickbay. Heather Jamieson ->:: To Kasuga :: One good thing is they are no longer changing. Presumably they would remain in this condition. STSF_BluRox -> Please gather what you think is important and bring it to sickbay, I'd like for you both to coordinate with Tory and narrow down what you need. anything you think is important that is missing, we're going back down to do another walkthrough Ayumu Kasuga -> That wouldn`t be good. Ahh.. how did they change them back the last timeÉ LtCmdrRobinson -> ::starts heading for medical, tags a few extra security along the way in case they are going to deal with Captain Wasp:: Christina_Nickles -> Aye commander Ayumu Kasuga -> (Keyboard set to French again lol) Tory Knight -> (( non parlez vous Francais... )) Ayumu Kasuga -> All right. Let's get our PADDs. STSF_BluRox -> (you would have that in the files, last time was through a straight up genetic recoding of dna, this time, its different, he made layers of mutations and refined first, so different) Christina_Nickles -> :: follows Will:: Heather Jamieson ->::Moves the highlights onto a PADD:: I'm glad the medical database can piece together this far better than I. STSF_BluRox -> (was only a few people, and we were able to use their own DNA patterns and the transporter buffer, however this time, there was evidence that he was also doing some sort of injections to mess with brain chemistry and neural controls, you would have this information from Jas) Tory Knight -> ::massaging her temples as she's looking at the research notes regarding "chain-linked" modifications to DNA:: nhepner42 -> I'm sure this guy thought of a way to reverse the process. It must be here somewhere ::continues rifling throught papers:: Ayumu Kasuga ->: ::grabs some PADDs, heading to medical:: Yes, well. We're hardly doctors.

Heather Jamieson -> Takes her PADDS with her and goes :: Ayumu Kasuga -> Yes, let's. Tory Knight -> ::arching a brow at Blu:: I've narrowed down some rather... esoteric research on DNA modification which seems to be the basis on which the good doctor worked. Tory Knight -> The white papers are buried -- writing about Eugenics will do that. LtCmdrRobinson -> Not sure what she needs yet, so no. Might just be a meeting, could be a epic life or death battle. Thats why I love this job. STSF_BluRox -> Besides the fact that the guy was a total psycho Heather Jamieson -> :: Enters the lift with Kasuga :: Computer, sickbay.. Tory Knight -> A psychotic genius, but yes. STSF_BluRox -> I see Jas finally decided to take some sleep, and it appears Rian has settled down finally too. Tory Knight -> ::looks over her shoulder at the two mutants:: Christina_Nickles -> Aye ::follws Will to Sickbay:: STSF_BluRox -> Frighteningly so. Who knows what whould have happened out here, if his plan had went unnoticed longer Tory Knight -> Yes... Though I suspect that they may eventually succumb to a cascade failure of systems as the biochemical processes are, in the end, incompatible. LtCmdrRobinson -> ::enters Medical:: STSF_BluRox -> I've asked a few others to join us here in a moment, I have some news I need to share with you all Tory Knight -> ::nods, pinching the bridge of her nose:: Ayumu Kasuga -> ::follows Heather into Sickbay:: nhepner42 -> ::follows evveryone into sickbay:: Christina_Nickles -> :: follows behind Will into medicaL:: STSF_BluRox -> Good, I see everyone I called for pretty much has arrived. :; looks at the tired exhausted faces:: Heather Jamieson -> : :: Enters sickbay :: STSF_BluRox -> : First I want to apologize for working you all so very hard, I know this has been a very trying situation, and I've not been very accomodating about it, it's just vital that we do all we can for those people, and for our own:: nodes over to the sleeping lizard and spider wasp:: I know you are exhausted, and I appreciate just how hard you are working. Heather Jamieson -> :: Places her PADDs on a table :: STSF_BluRox -> I wanted to inform you that the first of the Star Fleet ships that have been dispatched to assist us have arrived, and more on the way. Sadly, many of the medical staffs on those ships are still working with that epidemic outbreak that our medical staff had also been called to help with, so the work you've been doing is vital. STSF_BluRox -> They have sent along their science teams to help take over the process of trying to cure each and every one of these people, though having seen this before, I think we all know what the odds are of helping everyone STSF_BluRox -> I want to do a quick rundown of where we are, what each of you have found, and what we propose that we may still need. We will all then go down to have another look around that facility to seee if we can find anythign we might have missed. STSF_BluRox -> Also, Will, I'll need your people to help coordinate with the other ships security for the confinement of these people until it's safe to allow them to roam around. LtCmdrRobinson -> ::pretty sure this ship has more experience with mutations than the whole of starfleet:: STSF_BluRox -> Ayumu, Heather and Nick, please tell us anything important in the files that you might have found? STSF_BluRox -> ::looks at Tory, afraid she's going to fall asleep any moment:: STSF_BluRox -> Holly....please..something to eat for everyone, just something quick with some sugar and a drink...everyone, please be seated.. LtCmdrRobinson -> ::nods at Blu:: We've already prearranged some mobile confinement units, and we have some plans in place to use the structures down there to aid in that. STSF_BluRox -> Excellent Will, please have Christina and Nick work with the other ships to coordinate which habitats will be needed STSF_BluRox -> (Welcome PHoenix) STSF Phoenix -> (Hello Republicans) Heather Jamieson -> We have a lot of data, as you may know. DNA comparisons have tracked the changes between Jas and Kwai. We believe there are two approaches. nhepner42 -> I found a pretty torn up notebook and it seems to have something written about the first set of trials. I didn't understand it, but it may be important. STSF_BluRox -> Nick....that sounds very promising...good work STSF_BluRox -> Please Heather, tell us your thoughts? Heather Jamieson -> FIrst, transporters. The process is risky and if I would work they'd be back to normal quite quickly, but... Heather Jamieson -> we don't think they can be restored in that manner, at least not all of the way. Heather Jamieson -> The second is a more traditional and slower therapy over time.. alter a little, watch results, alters some more. Tory Knight -> I concur. It would have to be a step-by-step methodology, slowly peeling back the alterations, as they seem to be designed to build upon one another. Heather Jamieson -> But the changes are more than simple DNA code swapping, there are chemical interactions we don't understand yet. Heather Jamieson -> Right Tory, the order of the alterations are as important as the alterations themselves. Tory Knight -> At the same time, it's the chemical interactions which are acting as something of a timer on our solution -- the doctor's work was thorough but incomplete. Ayumu Kasuga -> (Back... needed to get medicine for my coughing) Tory Knight -> As a result, the chemical alterations are slowly decaying to toxins their bodies cannot process. Christina_Nickles -> :: To Tory,:: Kind of like how a Lizard and a wasap shead their skin to mutate? Only backwards Ayumu Kasuga -> ::Listens:: Tory Knight -> It's one of the reasons they're resting now -- their systems are being slowly overwhelmed by the chemical processes. STSF_BluRox -> Ioh, canada is sick too) STSF_BluRox -> Mr Bauer, any thoughts on what you've seen? Ayumu Kasuga -> Hmm. STSF_BluRox -> I know you were in the facility longer than we were, did you seen anyone of note that we should be looking for to help us? nhepner42 -> Hmmm nhepner42 -> There were lizards in lab coats. Presumably they would have maintained some control of their minds STSF_BluRox -> Alright, we've got some good information here. Now down to the real problem we have. nhepner42 -> They could be useful nhepner42 -> Plus, I saw mutants at various stages which supports Tory's theory STSF_BluRox -> Star Fleet Medical and Sciences want us to transfer Jas and Kwai over to them to take back to be studied. LtCmdrRobinson ->: Well I doubt he had reversal plans for these mutations. His entire goal with making them happen as efficently as possible, he wouldnt want to reverse them Christina_Nickles -> Why do I think that might be a bad Idea. Im afraid they may not help them. STSF BluRox -> I would much prefer that we try to cure them. Their thought is she's had this done before, but the preliminary info we sent, they were so excited about how some of this science could be used for curing diseas, I'm afraid they'd forget what we really want to do, and use her as just a sample to test on, same with WIL STSF_BluRox -> and you Will....they are also interested in you returning with them as well, to find out why you did not change... Christina_Nickles -> :: nods STSF_BluRox -> I refuse to give up our crewmembers and friends to be studied. even it it is to "supposedly help transform the others" this is Rian, Will and...the new guy....Jas right? LtCmdrRobinson -> Starfleet finally wants me back? arnt they still afraid I'll shoot more Admirals? STSF_BluRox -> As for Will, are we sure he's stil not going to transform. LtCmdrRobinson -> Boss, our ship has the most experience with mutations, we can handle it ourselves STSF_BluRox -> They want you to take samples and to try "TO' change you again, to understand why you are not Heather Jamieson -> They would likely have resources we do not, so we should not dismiss the offer out of hand,. STSF_BluRox -> I agree, and I want to delay them as long as possible LtCmdrRobinson -> They can give US the resources to use and command. Ayumu Kasuga -> YEs they could. Or even someone over to lend a hand? STSF_BluRox -> so I want Security to cooperate as much as possible getting them to handle the many colonist on the planet, there are many fo rthem to work with to try to save. I honestly thing many are too far long to help, but ... LtCmdrRobinson -> But I dont like the idea of just handing everything over Boss. We know some of the dark corners of starfleet would like to weaponize this information. They wont have our crews best intentions at heart. STSF_BluRox -> Nick...do you think you could find these other mutants you saw before? I had read in both yours and Jas's report a pair of them in lab coats talking to you, not hissing Heather Jamieson -> Some resources are not moveable Commander Robinson. nhepner42 -> I might be able to recognize them. Those two we saw had some pretty unique markings. One had a scarred and blinded left eye, the other had a damaged hand STSF_BluRox -> Will, you are thinking exactly what I'm thinking...I want the main cure dealt with here. I want you to request anything we need from them, and have it sent here. They are welcome to help you, but make sure you do it down on the facility. but mainly...they are not to have any access to Captain Kwai, Jas or.. STSF_BluRox -> as for Will, you please do assist with letting them examine you, but we can give them the data we've already collected on you. nhepner42 -> I think I should leave all they science-y stuff to all of you. Perhaps I should return to the facility soon? Give me a better chance of finding those lizards STSF_BluRox -> Nick...that might be the most important find yet. If they helped the psycho with the transformations and preparations, they may be able to tell us how, and help us. Tory, any thoughs on this? STSF_BluRox -> Yes Nick, I want you, Christina and Will to go down, coordinate with the other ships, try to match mutants to their DNA scans Star Fleet has provided, and find those lizards Tory Knight -> The problem is that loyalty has been programmed in to the chemical alterations. Tory Knight -> Any information they feed us will be suspect; we simply don't have time to verify. STSF_BluRox -> Ayumu, you will need to help as our OPs officer to coordinate with the other ships, you are hearby rescued from data mining... STSF_BluRox -> Heather, you work with Tory and try to figure out how this Tory Knight -> So... while the information gleaned from the doctor's staff might be taken into consideration, we're more likely to find results by directly utilizing his research notes and papers. Ayumu Kasuga -> ::nods:: Aye aye Ayumu Kasuga -> ::yay:: LtCmdrRobinson -> ::looks at Nickles:: We just cant get away from that planet, can we? Field trip time. STSF_BluRox -> We'll have to do the best we can. They knon he's dead, we have the Queen, we can use that for motivation if we have to Heather Jamieson -> Aye Christina_Nickles -> ::nods:: STSF_BluRox -> Will, I'll be giving you all a good vacation once this is over, STSF_BluRox -> I promise.. LtCmdrRobinson -> Our vacations are usually worse than our work, but I'll take it STSF_BluRox -> Ok people, I think we're moving in the right direction, we know the earlier procedure, we have this nut job's notes....and I have total faith in you to help save these people...and Rian. STSF_BluRox -> PAUSE SIM STSF_BluRox -> PAUSE SIM Christina_Nickles ->: ::paused:: Ayumu Kasuga -> ::Paused:: nhepner42 -> || LtCmdrRobinson -> ::psd:: Heather Jamieson ->: Good sim and night :) Tory Knight -> Night, folks! STSF_BluRox -> Good sim everyone, thanks so much...I appreciate you working around my illness of late Ayumu Kasuga -> Goodnight. Ayumu Kasuga -> No problem. Hope you feel better . nhepner42 -> Night all STSF_BluRox -> So next week, we'll be going ful steam ahead on finding those lizard scientists, hopefully figure out how to help Jas and Kwai STSF_BluRox -> we will of course, experiment on Jas first...lol STSF_BluRox -> rank and all...lol STSF_BluRox -> any questions or comments for tonight? Ayumu Kasuga -> That's what ensigns are for lol. STSF_BluRox -> I just want to say again, you guys are fantastic I love simming with each and every one of you. You all are a blast! STSF_BluRox -> Ok, if nothing else then we'll close up for tonght and let you get some sleep STSF_BluRox -> Night all, Crew Dismissed!
  3. March 23 USS Republic Mission Briefing 51503.23 - Many of the away teams have found themselves in sickbay for one reason or another. We have mutants, possible mutants. injured, uninjured, curious, an unknown and an annoyed hologram. Back on the planet security teams are working to contain the mutated masses and trying to confine them in a somewhat safe manner. If the mutation can be undone for such a large amount of people, is yet to be seen. STSF_BluRox -> BEGIN SIM STSF_BluRox -> BEGIN SIM Capt Rian Kwai -> ::stuck behind a forcefield...which is probably good for the rest of the crew because she's one mad spider/wasp:: Jas -> ::is still being a lizard behind a forcefield, lying down on a biobed and chilling:: LtCmdrRobinson -> ::possibly mutated more than normal:: STSF_BluRox -> Holly> :: looking at some of the readings:: Well, lizard boy over there seems to have his own thoughts and memories. He's also told me that they were attempting to give he and Buzzie over there, another treatment, which he did not get. Besides the obvious......we'll maintain a watch on him, but I think he can be trusted in a limited manner STSF_BluRox -> Holly> Hey Lizardboy....can you handle a medkit? STSF_BluRox -> Blu> Enough of that Holly......he didn't ask for that. Jas -> ::raises an eyebrow, or where his eyebrow might have been, at Holly:: Limited? And yes, I've been through Starfleet's medical program. STSF_BluRox -> Will....get Jax over there and let your lizard friend work on her wounds Ayumu Kasuga -> ::probably still on the surface collecting stuff:: STSF_BluRox -> Holly> You boy....are still wet out of cadet scrubs......I doubt you've gotten to deal with being elbow deep in mutant guts yet. Jas -> ::chuckles:: I am mutant guts. STSF_BluRox -> (Hi Tory) August Jax Robinson -> {{Yaaay Tory!!}} LtCmdrRobinson -> Might stop refering to him as a lizard, he might be sensitive about it. August Jax Robinson -> ::Looks at Will: I don't know what happen down there LtCmdrRobinson -> ::moves August over to a biobed:: Heather Jamieson -> :: with Kasuga :: STSF_BluRox -> Holly> Poor monkey boy....:: looks at Will:: Or what are you going to be this time.....? STSF_BluRox -> Blu> Holly.....I said that will be enough of that. LtCmdrRobinson -> I am going to be even more awesome then before, Holly. STSF_BluRox -> Holly> Touchy today, aren't you? Fine, fine.....Will...will you please take Jax over to Ensign Iguana and let him work on her please STSF_BluRox -> Blu> Holly...I swear..... STSF_BluRox -> Holly> Swearing isn't nice.... LtCmdrRobinson -> ::already moved August over:: You got messed up, dear. Jas -> ::watches the exchange from the biobed, which happens to be surprisingly comfy:: Capt Rian Kwai -> ::sliding off her biobed now that she's awake and starts pacing her enclosure:: Tory Knight -> ::in main sciences, doing her best to reverse engineer what has been done to bugger up DNA:: STSF_BluRox -> (Ayumu and nhepner, you are both still on the planet, please use a @ and finish up trying to find anything important looking) Tory Knight -> ::thinking she might need a refresher in molecular biology:: Ayumu Kasuga -> (thought so) STSF_BluRox -> Will...how's that force field? ::: pointing to the one holding Kwai, not so much worried about the one holding Jas Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*() ::Milling about the lab and other rooms collecting things:: Jas -> ::looks up at the ceiling and starts humming a tune to himself:: LtCmdrRobinson -> ::lowers the one around Jas:: It'll hold just fine, its rated fairly high. nhepner42 -> !@#$%^&*() ::walking around with pockets stuffed with vials of strange things and crumpled papers that have fancy looking words on them whilst looking for more stuff:: STSF_BluRox -> Holly> Oh...and by the way. I cross referenced all the missing colonists and fleet crew records we had received earlier. We do have a record of a Cadet matching Jas's dna and his story. We can run some tests when things slow down to confirm his identity, but he really has taken his medical courses. August Jax Robinson -> are people still down there? Heather Jamieson -> !@.. Are we nearly done? Tory Knight -> ::runs a series of simulations on some possible modifications to try and reverse it:: STSF_BluRox -> Blu> Good, we were able to use people's medical records before to help. Holly, send his file down to LtCdr Knight, it may help with her research. LtCmdrRobinson -> Jas, take a look at my wife here, looks like she lost a fight. Jas -> ::ponders to himself:: Hm.. I wonder what sssort of lizard DNA thisss isss... Tory Knight -> ::flops onto her stool, rubbing her face wearily:: Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*() ::Looks to Heather:: I would think so. We've already collected a lot of stuff; equipment, DNA samples, and several petabytes of data from the terminals. STSF_BluRox -> Will...why don't you get Ayumu, Heather and that other fellow, Nick I believe you said. Have them bring up what they've found so far and take it all to Knight. Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*() Still, better not to leave any stones unturned. STSF_BluRox -> I want you to make sure your security forces have that place locked down and secured until we get more help from fleet to help us contain and if possible, reverse this. Jas -> ::leans up on the biobed and looks over to Jax:: Yikesss.. August Jax Robinson -> Wil!! LtCmdrRobinson -> ::kisses August on the forehead:: Don’t kill the doctor while I am gone. nhepner42 -> !@#$%^&*() I've found lots of things that might help.

Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*() That's great. Hopefully we can find that useful. ::to Hepner:: STSF_BluRox -> Holly> I already took care of it... Capt Rian Kwai -> ::testing walls for weaknesses, definitely not in her right mind....had held it together and kept the Kwai-ness up until she attacked J'Rom....now she's more like the creature he created:: LtCmdrRobinson -> I gotta head back down for a few. ::heads for the door:: STSF_BluRox -> ::standing at the field looking at Rian:: Rian.....Rian...over here......you have to listen to me now August Jax Robinson -> Umm.. something, umm someone leaped at me August Jax Robinson -> then clawed at my face, I think Heather Jamieson -> !@.. Let's get that in a sea Jas -> ::leans in closer to inspect the wounds:: Do you need anything for the pain? Heather Jamieson -> Sealed container.. Good find STSF_BluRox -> Holly> Don't go in there, I'm not sure what she'll do right now, she seems a bit disoriented August Jax Robinson -> then Heather and Kasuga couldn't help me.. so here I am Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*() ::nods, opens a container and sets it down:: August Jax Robinson -> Will ditched me... again. you know how the story goes STSF_BluRox -> Not planning on it Holly.

STSF_BluRox -> :: standing before the field:: Rian.....Rian..... Come on now, I know you can remember...... Heather Jamieson -> !@.. Nhepner this should a great deal. August Jax Robinson -> Yes.. give me a double Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*() Indeed it should. Anything else we should look out for, Heather? nhepner42 -> !@#$%^&*() ::to Heather:: Awesome, glad I could be helpful.

August Jax Robinson -> need help getting things out of there? STSF_BluRox -> Rian.....that's enough of that attitude out of you.....you know we're all here to help you, we are going to help you. Just STSF_BluRox -> ...Holly...where's that...? Jas -> No.. if I could... jusssst.... ::sighs:: ...yesss...

  4. March 16 USS Republic Mission Briefing 051503.16 So when we last left off, we've brought Cpt Kwai back to Republic. Holly is going to help check her out, and the rest of the party on the surface is searching for some of those others that were left in charge as well as gather any pertinent information.

  6. USS Republic Mission Briefing 51503.01 Season 23 The landing party has finally found what they believe to be the partilally transformed Captain Kwai, and are now trying to move her to a different location...away from the large pod of sleeping spider wasps which have been randomly waking and attacking. As they finally were able to find a conveyance to move her with, they made their way back towards the lab and ran into the Admiral's party.

Did we lost any to the mutations? Jas -> Becaussse I wasss only recccently turned, they didn't inject me with whatever would control my mind.

  7. USS Republic Mission Briefing 51502.23 - Season 23 The Away team while fending off both mutant lizard men, ape-men and flying spider wasps, have come upon two other humanoids, very much in the midst of their transformation fighting in an adjacent lab, while they fought off more of the flying web slingers. As they defeated the insectoids they rushed in only to see the one creature (this one differing from the others as also having a spotted pattern), separate the other's head from it's body and watched in horror as it turned towards them.

  8. USS REPUBLIC MISSION BRIEFING AND RECAP - 51502.16 The away teams have met up and have been trying to locate the missing Kwai, after finding the 'now reptilian' Jas. Several of the team had been injured during a fight with some of the giant spider wasps, and now Jas has to protect the stunned redshirt. Will, Jax, Chirstina, Heather and Ayumu have pushed into a lab to avoid more of the spider-wasps behind them, only to come upon some struggle on the far side of the room, and several gigantic versions of the insectoids coming at them, all very well armored. Meanwhile, Kwai has managed to get a hold of J'Rom across the way in the back lab, barely able to be seen through the glass partition.

Will and Jax have been located, as well as the now lizard man, new guy Jas.... After downing several of the security teams and having Jax run around the corner into them, they are now facing waves of flying spidery wasp creatures, all bent on spearing each of them and protecting their queen who is nearby. During the first attack however, one of the young redshirts was stunned and Jas caught part of a blast and now can't speak well. Meanwhile....back in the lab.........

USS REPUBLIC MISSION BRIEFING 51502.02 - Season 23 As the Republic continues monitoring for more of the hostile ships from orbit, an away team had been dispatched to try to find our missing crew members in the underground city/lab complex on this former Terra forming project world. August and Will had escaped their captors, but not before they had injected Will, however he's showing no ill effects as yet. Jas and Kwai have escaped the lab where they had been injected and were to be given the control serum, and then during their escape, found a large area filled with what appeared to be giant spider-wasp creatures. Kwai seems strangely drawn to them. Kasuga, Christina and Heather continue to make their way into the facility, however the Klaxon has been sounded and there are huge packs of roving guards patrolling the facility. They did manage to catch up to Will and Jax in the process. STSF_BluRox -> BEGIN SIM STSF_BluRox -> BEGIN SIM Jas -> ::looks to Rian with confusion:: Wait.. you want me to run away from you??

  12. USS Republic Mission Briefing 51501.12 - Season 23 The Republic had been giving chase to the remaining attack ships, and realized that they had been lured away from the planet and their missing away team members. Heading back, orders had been sent for Nickles to organize a small party to head back down and try to recover our people based upon the information already collected. Meanwhile, down on the planet in the underground terra forming and colony headquarters, our away team members have found themselves held captive amidst and army of mutated colonists and some have already had the mutation process started upon themselves. Will, of course, is planning his escape Information formerly gathered: Colonists from 5 former colony worlds are dead or missing. Members of 4 separate orbital/relays stations are dead or missing. You have encountered a quite large, extensively constructed underground facility, large enough to house approximately 3000 by estimates of the dorms already observed and troop numbers. The facility is quite advances and has made use of the natural formations and minerals for protection. The mutants, though not retaining self will, appear to know how to perform their personal duties without question.

  21. USS REPUBLIC MISSION BRIEFING 51410.27 - Season 22 The Republic has been investigating the missing colonist and lack of communications on many of the outlying colony worlds, however.....they have found horrific scenes of death and dismemberment, blood, oozing body parts, but ...only of the old and infirm. Of the others, there is no sign, We are about to send a team down to the next planet, though it is not much of a place for a colony. It has been earmarked for extreme terra-forming before suitable for regular habitation. STSF_BluRox -> BEGIN SIM STSF_BluRox -> BEGIN SIM STSF_BluRox -> :: On the bridge, looking over various maps:: Capt Rian Kwai -> ::waiting for the team to assemble on the shuttlebay deck:: STSF_BluRox -> This world is a wreck......can't be much more than an advanced terraforming station.

Maybe someone will be alive, who knows? Its a mystery, August! Exciting! STSF_BluRox -> ::looks back up from her padd:: Ms Jamieson, if there is nothing else, the away team is in the hanger bay waiting for you Capt Rian Kwai -> Anyone we're missing ::looking around the shuttle:: Heather Jamieson -> Surveys of the sector reveal a likelihood of benamite deposits on a few worlds.

August Jax Robinson -> I don't want to see the same STSF_BluRox -> it was thought that there could be a large amount of Benamite naturally occurring in this sector. From my days in the Academy, I had been under the impression that Tory Knight -> ::the furrow in her brow deepens:: STSF_BluRox -> this substance was only found as a rare, synthesized molecule with a rapid decay rate, and would take years to reproduce more.

  23. USS Republic Mission Briefing 51410.13 - Season 22: The crew of the Republic has gone down to Ambrose 9 to investigate why there have picked up no communications from this and several other settlements, and have found the horrific remains of what appears to have been slaughtered colonists STSF_BluRox -> BEGIN SIM STSF_BluRox -> BEGIN SIM Capt Rian Kwai -> !@#$%^&*() Just unicorns and rainbows around here. ::sighs, not liking the situation at all:: Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*() ::looking about:: LtCmdrRobinson -> !@#$%^&*() OK, lifeform check folks. And then scan 5 more times. Because someone somewhere is eating folks around here. STSF_BluRox -> Random Science guy> :: turns to Heather:: My scans show the same thing, these were all extremely elderly colonist, and one that appears to have been younger, but he had some sort of severe injury, and appears to have been paralyzed from the waist down. August Jax Robinson -> !@#$%^&*() clearly no one is left ::freaked out:: we should leave too Capt Rian Kwai -> !@#$%^&*() Do we have an idea of a time of death here? Heather Jamieson -> !@#$%^&*() :: Gathering samples :: LtCmdrRobinson -> !@#$%^&*() Smells like about a week Heather Jamieson -> !@#$%^&*() :: looks to the RSG :: Yeah, those that were not in optimal condition. I would estimate 8 days, perhaps 9. LtCmdrRobinson -> !@#$%^&*() Lets get moving, check the rest of the buildings. Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*() ::nods:: Heather Jamieson -> !@#$%^&*() :: Moves with the rest of the group :: I'm trying to think of what could have caused this.

It appears that the rest of the settlement has been stripped of anything of value All food stores, plants, equipment.....it's all gone. Heather Jamieson -> !@#$%^&*() :: Thinks :: Yeah... deliberate actions. STSF_BluRox -> !@#$%^&*() Random Science guy: It's as though they had a mass evacuation...but how does that tie into the dead old and sick people? Heather Jamieson -> !@#$%^&*() So, the victims are either old or somehow disabled and everything else is gone. Heather Jamieson -> !@#$%^&*() Perhaps the able bodied people panicked and left them behind.. but from what Capt Rian Kwai -> Would you leave behind your elders? STSF_BluRox -> ~!@#$$%^&*() Random Science guy: But....why....do what they did to them? Butcher them? What kind of farmers where these people? August Jax Robinson -> !@#$%^&*() maybe the elders sent the healthy young people away so they don't die here... like them ::Points:: STSF_BluRox -> !@#$#%^&*&(*( Random Science guy> ::stench finally gets to him:: Excuse me... :: moves towards a tree and retches:: Heather Jamieson -> !@#$%^&*() I don't believe I would, but then again we don't exactly what happened. This will be in my hair. I'll have to stay in the shower for hours. August Jax Robinson -> !@#$%^&*() if it was either keep my kids here and watch them die or send them off... then give them the best shot.. make them go Capt Rian Kwai -> !@#$%^&*() Will, is there anything else you think we can learn about here? Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*() ::Still feeling lightheaded from the stench and barfing about a million times so far, but still slowly keeping up with the rest of the team:: I feel you. I'm probably going to just toss these clothes straight into the trash. LtCmdrRobinson -> !@#$%^&*() ::Shrugs:: If they had to evac, they may have had limited shuttle space. But these colonies don’t usually have long range transport, just short range shuttles. Either they took off somewhere close by, or someone grabbed the others. STSF_BluRox -> !@#$$%^&(*) > Random Science guy> But that doesn't make much sense. Why leave people in cages to eat each other, why butcher some of the others? that's disgusting? And where would they go. We are thinking they left on their own, but how does this relate to the weapons fire on the relay station? It's almost like someone took them, and was trying to prevent anyone from knowing? Why? Heather Jamieson -> !@#$%^&*() :: Shakes her head :: Question is, where do we go next? August Jax Robinson -> !@#$%^&*() Risa? Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*() Anywhere is better is here STSF_BluRox -> !@#$$%^&*(& Random Science guy> :: points over at Kwai:: Probably up to her and BluRox. There were several other colonies we'd not heard from. I'd imagine we'll have to check them out as well. However, in light of what we've seen here, I find I almost have to agree with Commander Robinson....Jax that is... Heather Jamieson -> !@#$%^&*() :: Takes more images :: STSF_BluRox -> (Will wins Blu's "he's a smart cookie award for tonight, and tonight and tonight's 'get out of peril free' card) LtCmdrRobinson -> !@#$%^&*() Well if we aren’t getting any life signs here, we should head back to the ship and start scanning for signs of ship movement lately. See what we can find. August Jax Robinson -> !@#$%^&*() ::Stays close to Will:: Capt Rian Kwai -> !@#$%^&*() Agreed. Let's pack it up and head back to the ship. STSF_BluRox -> !@#$$%^&*&^ Random Science guy> ::walks over to join the others and as he crossed over in front of Will, steps on the end of a broken rake, causing it to flip up and hit him in the head with the handle: Owwwwww! ::holds hand to head:: Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*() ::Turns:: OOoh.

STSF_BluRox -> Ops...beam up Kwai, the rest can bring the shuttle back up. I want to debrief her. Capt Rian Kwai -> !@#$%^&*() You can take the shuttle, I want to speak to Blu about what we've found personally. ::thinking she didn't want to be into the shuttle with the yacker anyway:: STSF_BluRox -> ACTION: Kwai is beamed back to the ship August Jax Robinson -> !@#$%^&*() ::Sneers:: lets move it people Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*() ::heads back to the shuttle:: STSF_BluRox -> ACTION: TEAM BRINGS SHUTTLE BACK TO THE SHIP, AND THE SEARCH GOES ON. AFTER INVESTIGATING 3 OTHER COLONY WORLDS AND FINDING THE SAME RESULTS, BUT THE DEAD A BIT FRESHER, WE MAY BE GETTING CLOSER AND ARE NOW HEADING TOWARDS THE 5TH COLONY WE WERE GOING TO INVESTIGATE. LtCmdrRobinson -> !@#$%^&*() I think Kwai took the transporter because she thought it would get the smell out of her uniform. STSF_BluRox -> :: on the bridge:: Rian, I'd like to call a meeting can you get everyone up here to meet in 10 minutes Capt Rian Kwai -> No problem. I think I'm going to change first.

  24. USS REPUBLIC MISSION BRIEFING 5141006 - SEASON 22 The away team has gone down to the surface of Ambrose 9, and have been searching for any lifesigns or clues as to where everyone could be. As the team approached the main colony, they came upon a horrible stench and paused to reassess STSF_BluRox -> Questions? STSF_BluRox -> My apologies again for last week, I was traveling was unable to get a connection and was only able to let Kwai know by phone. August Jax Robinson -> is it a fish or skunk stench?

We landed outside the main colony. Only a few outbuildings between here and there. Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*() ::with Heather, checking her tricorder:: Christina_Nickles -> !@#$%^&*() :: moves along with Will:: ((AFK BRB)) Capt Rian Kwai -> !@#$%^&*() Great. Lead the way then, Mr Robinson. This is your away team. LtCmdrRobinson -> !@#$%^&*() They've got a water pumping station about 2 minutes up the path here. Another 5 minutes to the colony from there. ::heads out:: Capt Rian Kwai -> Let's move out then. ::motions to the others to follow Wll:: Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*() ::Follows;: Christina_Nickles -> !@#$%^&*() ::takes up the rear as Will leads:: Heather Jamieson -> !@.. :: follows along with the others, keeping course to her friend :: LtCmdrRobinson -> !@#$%^&*() ::comes up to the first small building, pauses to look:: LtCmdrRobinson -> !@#$%^&*() No movement, no signs of trouble either. ACTION>These first few buildings seem normal enough. No life signs are found however. Christina_Nickles -> !@#$%^&*() :: keeps a watch behind them to make sure it remains clear:: Capt Rian Kwai -> !@#$%^&*() Don't know about you all, but doesn't it seem too quiet around here? Heather Jamieson -> @!.. :: the place seems eerie, where was everyone... Started to creep her out :: Capt Rian Kwai -> !@#$%^&*() How many settlements are on this planet? Heather Jamieson -> !@.. Yes. Christina_Nickles -> !@#$%^&*() ::nods but doesn’t speak:: August Jax Robinson -> {{Sorry everyone, I need to lay down. my back is killing me I can't sit up anymore :( }} Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*() Hmmm LtCmdrRobinson -> ((night wife)) Capt Rian Kwai -> ((Sorry Jax!

Christina_Nickles -> !@#$%^&*() ::stops and watches the area around them watching for anything unusual:: Capt Rian Kwai -> !@#$%^&*() Any idea on how to tell when they left? LtCmdrRobinson -> !@#$%^&*() I doubt these buildings are manned 24/7 to begin with. Probably only for maintenance. Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*() That could explain the lack of life signs. Heather Jamieson -> !@.. Last login? Christina_Nickles -> !@#$%^&*() Maintenance logs? Capt Rian Kwai -> !@#$%^&*() No it wouldn't explain the lack of life signs. You should be picking up something in the village at least. Heather Jamieson -> !@.. Some buildings keep their own records. Do the have a camera system? LtCmdrRobinson -> !@#$%^&*() We'll find out when we get into the colony. Capt Rian Kwai -> !@#$%^&*() Nothing looks amiss here. ::frowning:: Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*() Yeah, looks like a generic outpost. LtCmdrRobinson -> !@#$%^&*() ::keeps moving up he path:: Heather Jamieson -> !@.. Let's get to the village. Capt Rian Kwai -> !@#$%^&*() ::following at the rear of the group, looking about:: Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*() ::looking around:: Heather Jamieson -> !@.. ,:: scanning some more :: ACTION> There is a strange and foul odor as they get closer to the village LtCmdrRobinson -> !@#$%^&*() Smells like we are about to have a bad day. Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*() Oh ::Sniffs:: That's not nice. Heather Jamieson -> !@.. :: winces and reels back :: ugh... Capt Rian Kwai -> !@#$%^&*() ::stops in her tracks:: Is that what I think it is or is my imagination going wild on me? Ayumu Kasuga -> !@#$%^&*()_ Depends on what you're thinking? Heather Jamieson -> !@.. Let me get a reading... Capt Rian Kwai -> !@#$%^&*() ::holds her hand under her nose to block the passage of air that way:: Heather Jamieson -> !@..
