Chirakis: Captain Nero is visiting... or so it seems...

Tae'Lynn Dran: ::considers this info well above her paygrade:: CdrBrown: With the large number of ships cloaked in the area, and with the number of resupply missions to the station, we will need to set up visual navigation markers and ensure that sensors of incoming vessels are shut down to make sure fleet positions aren't accidentally gleaned. Jylliene: ::raises hand, glancing toward Brown:: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: raises hand after Jylliene :: Chirakis: Understood, Commander. However, many things that you suggest have already been dealt with. Also, these cloaked crews are not only here, they are cordoned around our area of space. Chirakis: And if I could, I would tell you more. CdrBrown: ::nods:: understood Chirakis: ::nod::: Commander Kital? Jylliene: I would be concerned that demanding that incoming vessels shut down their sensors would be a giveaway of the presence of the fleet - or of something - anyhow. Am I understanding your response to Commander Brown correctly as we will not need to make such a request? Chirakis: :::thinking of Scott who is now at Starfleet Command discussing all this::: Chirakis: I'm not quite understanding what you are saying, Commander. Jylliene: Commander Brown's statement that we'd need to have incoming ships shut off sensors concerns me - it would alert them to something going on that we don't want them to see. Jylliene: I wasn't sure if your answer to him indicated that we would or wouldn't need to make such a demand. Chirakis: Ah... I understand. However incoming ships would come in the same as they always did. Normal, natural, docking bays the same, etc. Is that to which you refer? CdrBrown: ::sips more of his coffee:: Jylliene: Yes. Chirakis: Very well. Commander Korjata, a question? Nijil tr'Korjata: I for one don't believe the Alliance does not know we are back online. Also, are those ships in a patrol formation or stationary so as to not collide with each other? Fletcher Jackson: ::outside, working through a pile of information that needs to be sent out, then sent back so they can be sorted and put away or sent away or..... man, he wants a donut!!:: Chirakis: :::very slight grin:: Commander, the ships we use are not patrolling any certain areas. They are like fish in water... they go here, move, and go somewhere else, sorting out what is needed. I would tell you more, but I cannot. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: his padd vibrates and he checks it :: Chirakis: Anything else? mimipavilion: ::does not envy the Captain for need to know information:: Nijil tr'Korjata: Afraid I will alert someone? And fish to collide. CdrBrown: ::shakes his head NO:: Tarisa: I have a question. Chirakis: :::sighs at Nijil's question::: Chirakis: Commander Tarisa? Tarisa: What of our civilian population? It seems we are on the inevitable brink of full scale war. Is it wise to have them remain? CdrBrown: ::glares at Nijil:: Chirakis: Everyone on station will go back to normalcy. Alexis McFarland: ::strolls around the promenade with her friends:: Chirakis: No one outside this room will know what is happening. Is... that... clear? CdrBrown: ::thinks that normal around here is being on the brink of death:: CdrBrown: aye mimipavilion: yes Annisha: :: Looks all around the commerce level, at least from her low perspective :: Seems odd though. Father needs to look at the air. Chirakis: One more thing... Tarisa: ::Nods, if but reluctantly.:: Chirakis: Aegis is not the only area with cloaked ships. The Alien Alliance has cordoned off their areas of space to take them over. What they do not know is that our cloaked ships are watching them closely. Alexis McFarland: Yeah, it still feels odd. I agree. I can sense it. Jylliene: ::ponders - shipyard?:: Chirakis: Everyone everywhere is covered. As mentioned before, Ferengi, Bajoran, Klingon, Romulan, and Cardassian ships and others work with the United Federation. Annisha: This whole place is off... I'd take a planet right about now. :: rubs her hands together :: Alexis McFarland: ooh a whole planet? Chirakis: We must move on... Chirakis: :::stands:: Therefore, remember that NOTHING goes outside this room. There will be dire consequences for anyone who does not keep it private. Is... that.. understood? CdrBrown: yes ma'am Dacia Sandero: ::nods:: mimipavilion: ::nods:: Jylliene: ::nods:: Annisha: I mean I can't rule a whole planet. Chirakis: :::presses the button to allow security to open the door::: You are dismissed.

Chirakis: You know.. the gentleman who is working on painting an image of the XO would want to have him stand at a certain angle. Chirakis: Ah, yes. That is the proper word. Scott Coleridge: Well... I would agree with you. From experience. ::Sheepish grin turns somewhat roguish:: but that's a story for another day. Scott Coleridge: Anything else, Captain? Dacia Sandero: ::working with the patient, helping them providing advice to prevent any more injuries in the workplace:: Chirakis: ::pushing off from the windowsill::: There are a few things, but now is not the time.

I had also seconded some of Tarisa's qualified personnel for health and safety checks on the commerce level. I think that's done too. Scott Coleridge: I'm not sure what her next priorities are. I can have department heads submit fresh briefings to me later today. Chirakis: ::nod:: Understood. :::still contemplative::: Amanda Davis PhD: :::and passes by Mimi's office, then stops to watch the piles on her deck::: Scott Coleridge: ::not sure what else to say:: If there's nothing else… Chirakis: Nothing else for the moment. mimipavilion: ::manages to finish up all reports for the various committees:: mimipavilion: ::sends them too:: Amanda Davis PhD: ::knocks on her open door:: Mimi?

  4. Cordon Against the Alliance At precisely 0300 Aegis local Captain Chirakis Kirel entered CnC, checked data that was handed to her, paged through it, and received the information needed to proceed. “This is what we have so far, Lt Foster?” she asked, handing it back. “Yes, ma’am. I’ll let you know when more comes in.” “Very well. I will be in my office for…” she checked the chrono,” approximately ten minutes or just after they arrive.” At precisely 0307 the captain entered her office and settled behind her desk. Leaning back in her chair, her boots rested on the desktop as she combed through the most recent information from Starfleet Command and Rendezvous October. Not much happened during Mid Watch. Most reports came through to her, but unless they were important she put them aside until she had extra time to plow through them. Otherwise…. Within seconds, Lt Foster rounded the corner. “Captain, Narada will berth on docking bay A-15 in approximately five minutes. Anything important I should do, ma’am?” “Keep CnC clear and ready for anything,” Kirel replied leaving the office as she walked toward the lift. “Be ready for more ships within the hour. Some you will see, and some you will not. Some will be cloaked within our area and some outside the wire. You will not know who they are, where they are, and why they are there. Is that clear?” "Yes, ma’am.” “No one,” Kirel continued, turning to face all in CnC and speaking strictly, “and I mean no one will reveal what I have said. Is… that… clear?” “Ma’am, yes ma’am,” the five on Mid Watch replied, while Kirel studied each officer. “Very well. Lieutenant Foster, you have the con. I will be on docking bay A-15. Carry on.”

  7. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |28 May 2021 4 August 2388 - Stardate 2388.218 TBS is 16 hours - the time is 0900 (09:00 am) Aegis Local Captain Chirakis flies Drakkor to USS Missouri where she and Captain d’Ka discuss several matters, especially her “resurrection” from subspace and the possibility that Ragor Tal will tear the universe apart, piece by piece. With Chirakis gone, Commander Coleridge is in command. While working in CnC, he spots a stranger who has been standing there and taking notes on his PADD. Security will watch him discreetly to see how long he stays and where he goes afterwards. Lt Cdr Kital returns to duty in CnC.
  8. Nemesis Cptn d’Ka, Cptn Chirakis The time had come. They had always been a peaceful people, a sequestered race in a system hidden on the outer fringe of the galaxy: diplomats and scientists, erudite analysts, and eager explorers of the universe. They were also skilled warriors, seldomly venturing beyond their borders for exploration. Until they were forced into it. As it had been for many peace-loving species, the Sindarin were compelled to defend themselves. Interlopers who found the system to their liking sought to eradicate the system’s original inhabitants. Eventually the Sindarin realized they could no longer remain aloof from happenings outside their system, except for a mutual agreement with the Federation. Because of their reclusive nature, it was a rare occasion to see a Sindarin, much less meet one. USS Missouri—a heavily armed Akira class starship in the Starfleet Border Patrol—chose a Starfleet officer who had thorough knowledge of the area. Captain Je’rit d’Ka. And now, Starfleet faced the most ruthless organized crime lord in the galaxy. Ragor Tal, also known as Nazar Ka’aroth (diabolical destroyer), Drakul Mukesh (Prince of Evil), the Federation’s most wanted criminal, a merciless leader whose greatest pleasure was torture of his hapless prisoners, adversaries or disobedient followers. He put a high price on Chirakis after she fought against and killed his chief lieutenant. Ragor Tal was considered the most brilliant independent racketeer ever encountered. He kept his marauding group small, kept them compartmentalized, and was highly skilled in manipulative, clandestine operations. His primary modus operandi was to convince his opposition that the enemy was within: pit one leader against the other, create chaos and infighting, then move in and take over the organization or infiltrate what was left with one of his own lackeys. If Kirel did not know better, she would say that Ragor Tal had been trained by SI-5. Extremely tall, contemplative, and peaceful, Captain d’Ka of USS Missouri was one of the few Sindarin allowed outside Sindar territory. Kirel followed Captain d’Ka into his office on USS Missouri, his steps falling silently on the deck. His thoughts focused on several things, especially on the situation regarding Ragor Tal. As do all Sindarin, the color of his eyes often changed from lavender to blue, then to a deep hazel depending on his mood and the intensity of his concentration. His platinum hair was cropped in regulation, cut above pointed ears that registered sound well outside the range of human hearing, and his thoughts registered everything around him. “Enl’licdh’a, Kh’éile,” he asked as the door closed and d’Ka slid open the bar behind him. Kirel relaxed on the couch and chose one of his best cigars. “Enl’licdh’a, Keann-a, to keep my mind in focus. We have much to discuss.” “Indeed we do,” he replied, handing her a hand-crafted glass as he relaxed in his armchair and lit his cigar. “You spoke to Admiral Solokov?” “And Admiral Mulligan, Captain Raza, and Vice Admiral Baldwin. But you already know that,” she sipped and put the glass aside. “And I already know what you are thinking.” “The word does get around, Kirel. And he is not only after you. Ragor Tal is after both of us.” “And for good reason, Kenn’ai. The encounter with Tal’s second in command did not turn out as they planned. I survived. He did not.” “And now we are both in jeopardy.” A puff on his cigar swirled delicately toward the ceiling, its mesmerizing beauty vanishing reluctantly through a jealous vent that sucked its life into USS Missouri’s atmospheric scrubbing system. “Of course, there is a price on my head, as is yours.” She shrugged, putting aside her cigar.” A sizable price, actually. And we are to be taken alive for obvious reasons. But,” she continued, “It’s always nice for an operative to know exactly what she is dealing with.”

Ten days after Sky Harbor Aegis emerged from subspace, its appearance not only shocked Aegis personnel and Border Patrol, it threw Aegis’ nemesis, Ragor Tal, into a frenzy—smashing equipment, destroying desks, chairs, and almost breaking the bones of his first officer, T’jen. “She should be dead,” he growled, Tal's eyes glowing from deep purple to red, screaming as he threw table after table across the room. “She is not supposed to be alive," he growled. "And she was alive when she emerged from subspace??? She shouldn't be! It should have killed her!” One more smash through the wall with Tal's hefty fist and his office door slammed shut. T'jen held up his hands until Tal's office silenced. A few more minutes and T'jen nodded pointing to clean up. It was a long day, and probably would be for a while. ______________________________ The sudden emergence of Sky Harbor Aegis from subspace, shocked Starfleet Command just as much as it shocked Ragor Tal… minus the destruction of course. Ten days and personnel had settled down to normalcy. Well, not total normalcy because nothing is ever normal on or near Sky Harbor Aegis. Border Patrol spread throughout the area to watch the Alien Alliance. Border Patrol has ordered the Zumwalt stealth destroyers to keep watch throughout the area. As for the civilians on Aegis, they’re glad to be back in their own quarters, walking around the commerce deck, playing with the children, and especially going to Chez Antonio’s or Blubby’s for dinner. What the children do not enjoy is going back to school, but that’s another story.

Mimipavilion: ::coordinating and calibrating an equipment check section by section, specifically the biobeds to her office making sure things are in order:: Jylliene: Well then, let's get that settled first. Do you have a favorite place for breakfast? Dacia Sandero: ::looks over to Amanda:: It looks like they've brought most of what we've requested, though we still haven't gone through everything yet. Annisha: :: With the group :: Tarisa:Miana> You mean besides Blubby's? Amanda Davis PhD: Wonderful!

Tarisa:Miana> Um...My neemah likes that place. ::Points to the pastry shop that Tarisa frequents in the mornings.:: Dacia Sandero: Well, if you're able that'd be nice.

Chirakis (Mod): ::finally satisfied she enters the command lift and enters CnC::: Dacia Sandero: I hope so as well. It was a rough couple of weeks.

Alexis McFarland: Yay ::orders some salmon and tuna Origins:: Tarisa: Oh yes, of course. ::Pulls up a roster. After a glance, she selects a few, then hands Scott that PADD:: These officers should be qualified. Tarisa: ::Perks up>:: Sir? Tae'Lynn Dran: ::moves to the next node.

I don't believe we've had this much equipment in years! Mimipavilion: ::to Amanda:: That is so true. Annisha::: Drinking and eating at Onigirl's :: Jylliene: Nice to be back to normal? Dacia Sandero: Yeah I know right. Tae'Lynn Dran: ::checking the next node. Records variations due to inconsistent energy flow.

We just repaired that console. Amanda Davis PhD: ::finalizes her area of the equipment and furnishes a report::: Annisha: Hey Mom, when will things turn to normal around here? Jylliene: Think we're nearly there. Alexis McFarland: Ooh that's nice Jylliene: Nearly. CdrBrown: ::to Scott:: in all the years you've known me, have I ever spilled my coffee, even during battle? Tarisa:Miana> Yay Jylliene:((Famous last words)) Scott Coleridge: ::Brown:: Now you've done it! Scott Coleridge: ::backs away slowly from Brown:: Tarisa: ::Gives a curious look.:: Jylliene: ::seeing them about done:: ready to go to the pastry shop? Chirakis (Mod): :::slight grin and chuckle::: Are you the master of the Coffee Order, Commander Brown? Alexis McFarland: ::finishes her Onigiri:: Yes. Annisha: Oh yeah! Jylliene: ::unsure where they put all the food, but remembers her mom said she was similar at that age:: Tarisa:Miana> Yes! ::Tail does happy swish.:: CdrBrown: I am the Coffee Commander, Captain Amanda Davis PhD: ::passing the list of equipment and settling them in where they should be::: Jylliene: ::Proceeds toward the pastry shop with the girls:: Scott Coleridge: ::Brown:: That name's not going away now. Annisha: This place is so quiet still. Chirakis (Mod): :::raises a brow::: Are you certain of that? ::puts her coffee aside::: Tarisa:Miana> I want to try the claw of the bear. That is what Neemah says she gets. Chirakis (Mod): :::Scott::: It is more of a challenge. Alexis McFarland: Ooh, claw of the bear. My Neemah usually gets that... or a cruller of the honey CdrBrown: This Andorian no-spill mug has been with me since my academy days Jylliene: It is a little quiet, but that'll change as things get more settled. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Pinging various endpoints along the communications system :: Dacia Sandero: :::helping put away and organize the new equipment:: Chirakis (Mod): Has it? Then if you have used it for.... 30 terran years.... you must need a new one. Alexis McFarland: It's kinda nice, when it's not so crowded though. More space to walk around. Chirakis (Mod): ::hand behind her back against the coffee::: Jylliene: It is ::agreeing with Alexis:: Annisha: People are skittish.. CdrBrown: I just replace the battery every so often. The secret is the force field when it detects a sudden movement and spillage potential. Jylliene: Some of the shops are still in the process of reopening. Tarisa:Miana> ::Curious, cause her ears twitch.:: I hear people. Jylliene: Some of the citizens are still settling in Alexis McFarland: Ah. That must be what you are hearing Miana. Chirakis (Mod): :::arms crossed::: It does? Interesting. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Thinks he heard something :: Hello? CdrBrown: I heard it was developed originally to keep Andorian Wine from spilling. invented by an engineer who was tired of spilling her wine Chirakis (Mod): I see. CdrBrown: ::sees the looks on several faces:: I think I know what I am getting everyone for Christmas this year. Alexis McFarland: ::following along with everyone else:: Chirakis (Mod): And was your Andorian given a bit of her own medicine? Annisha: My hearing is good too, but not as good as Miana's CdrBrown: I hope she made a profit! CdrBrown: ::realized that by saying that word, somewhere, somehow, Drankum's lobes twitched:: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Turns and hears nothing, nor sees it :: Chirakis (Mod):=/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis (Mod):=/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis (Mod): Thank you Chirakis (Mod):Interesting sim. CdrBrown:its all Scott's fault Alexis McFarland:lol Chirakis (Mod): Careful, Commander. Chirakis (Mod):Next week we should have finished everything needed for Aegis. Civilians pile in... Chirakis (Mod): ...and something might happen. Chirakis (Mod): What doth thou think of that Commander Coleridge? Scott Coleridge: Something always seems to be happening. Chirakis (Mod):Indeed it does. Chirakis (Mod):Commander Brown? CdrBrown: Is it something wicked?? Chirakis (Mod):Perhaps. CdrBrown: Then I am ready for it! Chirakis (Mod): Excellent. Chirakis (Mod): Questions or comments from the crew? Chirakis (Mod): Seeing none.... Chirakis (Mod): Crew dismissed. Be well. Be Safe. Don’t forget your towel.
