  1. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |22 January 2021 10 July 2388 - Stardate 2388.192 TBS is 3 hours - the time is 1800 hours (6:00 pm) Aegis Local. Morning Watch had been handed over to Midwatch. Soon they would pass their watch to Evening, and eventually to Night Watch or Graveyard, so named in the year 1895, 493 years ago. First Watch had left to be with their families and/or friends. Some had stayed behind for various reasons, usually to finish reports. Captain Chirakis remained in her office, passing information to Starfleet Command through encrypted subspace code. Occasionally Admiral Solokov would appear onscreen to discuss whatever he had in mind, and this time it was very interesting. Kirel relaxed in her chair, arms crossed, her expression curious. “Calestorm?” “Yes, Calestorm. I’m sending her dossier. I believe you’ll find it quite interesting.”

Two weeks have passed and Aegis has settled down to normalcy. All areas of the base are monitored. USS Missouri keeps watch under cloak. USS Iowa's fleet floats casually through the area.

Calestorm: (That's a combination!) Chirakis: They were..... tortured..... horribly. Annisha: The secret to these tacos is the sauce, and the fish....and the tortilla. Tae'Lynn Dran: I should probably randomize the environmental settings. If it's to be a true training exercise I might as well be as surprised as whoever I bring along. Speaking of which ::now pulling up the life sciences roster and seeing who hasn't had enough field time:: Alexis McFarland: Nice, the sandwich too, and the bread.

  3. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |15 January 2021 10 July 2388 - Stardate 2388.192 TBS is 4 hours - the time is 1400 hours (2:00 pm) Aegis Local. Two weeks have passed and Aegis had settled down to normalcy. All areas of the base are monitored—interior and exterior. USS Missouri keeps watch under cloak. USS Iowa’s fleet floats casually through the area in a congenial manner, especially when they were allowed shore leave. Internal areas of Aegis are monitored by Security. Under cover security personnel mixed casually with the locals, listening for intel, especially at Drankum’s Bar. Security passed information to Kirel, who passed it on to Rendezvous October and Admiral Solokov’s Covert Operators. Eventually it came full circle, and the information Kirel received via encrypted message from Rendezvous October was nothing less than devastating.

  5. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |8 January 2021 10 July 2388 - Stardate 2388.192 TBS is 14 days - the time is 0900 hours (09:00 am) Aegis Local. Two weeks have passed, and nothing abnormal has emerged. All areas of the base are monitored—interior and exterior. USS Missouri keeps watch under cloak. USS Iowa’s fleet floats casually through the area. Internal areas of Aegis are monitored by Security, especially areas where the Gremlins fiddled with electronic equipment in unfinished areas of the station. Pakleds thought they were buying areas of Aegis. Various types of plants grew—some dangerous and some gentle. Captain Chirakis has informed Commander Coleridge of Ragor Tal and his conspirators, especially Kran Magkor, Tal’s primary assassin and a master of torture. Security is continually on alert while others casually go about their business.

Scott Coleridge: Most of our investigation is inconclusive, but we found a few interesting correlations. For example, we think that whatever phenomenon drained the power from the ships left a residual static charge on the hulls of the ships. Amanda Davis PhD: ::after removing the splinter, she hands the girl a lollipop and sends her on her way:: Scott Coleridge: I've asked Lieutenant Robinson to provide her summary of our findings. ::nods at Sierra:: Chirakis: :::now very interested, she turns to Sierra::: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Looking at his padd :: Alexis McFarland: ::eating a Blubby Pie for dessert:: Annisha: Blub> They have pies? Sierra Robinson: We explored all known areas of the ships regarding power generation, transfer and usage. We could not find any trace of the phenomenon that drained these vessels aside from a residual static charge trance on exteriors inside the ship. Alexis McFarland: It's new I think. Though I don't know what fruit the filling is. Sierra Robinson: One item of interest to point out. While all ship's systems linked to the main power grid were affected by the unknown phenomenon, individual shuttles powered down on the Oberth vessels were not affected by the phenomenon. Sierra Robinson: It is as if, whatever went through these ships passed over the shuttlecraft as if they were rocks in a stream ...letting them be. Chirakis: Clarify, Lieutenant. Sierra Robinson: The Chi Song had four science craft aboard. Small shuttles for observational purposes these Type IV craft were powered down when we found them. We investigated their internal power systems and found them completely operational. Scott Coleridge: In other words, the power-draining phenomenon only drained power from systems on the ship that were active. Independently-powered systems were unaffected as long as they were grounded from the ship’s hull. Sierra Robinson: Lt Tarisa postulated that perhaps the phenomenon gained entry to the ship's systems via the bussard ramscoops, and, perhaps I would like to add, exited through the warp coils themselves. Further analysis will be needed to verify this. Scott Coleridge: This gives us some interesting directions for R&D to pursue in terms of defences, should this phenomenon... re-occur. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Listens :: Sierra Robinson: :: looks to Commander Coleridge with a nod as to say that is all she has :: Chirakis: Indeed. Let us hope that it does not reoccur. Chirakis: :::slight pause before she continues::: I'm curious about.... Chirakis: ...about the nebulae supposedly sucking energy from the ship but not from the ship's interior. Chirakis: :::looks around::: Did any of the ship’s personnel attempt to use the internal craft? Scott Coleridge: No, according to the logs they weren’t accessed while the ships were in the nebula. Chirakis: :::rocks back, thinking::: Sierra Robinson: :: wonders if that was brought up in the interviews of the survivors :: Chirakis: And from what I understand, the nebular waves disappeared as soon as the ships were dead in space. Is that correct? Scott Coleridge: Correct. Chirakis: Very well. ::turns to Nijil:: Any words from you, Commander Korjata?

Watch and report to myself or Commander Coleridge if need be. Chirakis: Questions? Sierra Robinson: Is this in regards to the plants Captain? Chirakis: Somewhat. Sierra Robinson: Understood. Nijil tr'Korjata: Hope it is not me. Chirakis: However, it goes beyond just one thing or one area.

  7. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |1 January 2021 26 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.179 TBS is 2 days - the time is 0900 hours (09:00 am) Aegis Local. The USS Rodman, USS Chi Song, and USS Agincourt are berthed on Aegis. Clad in hazmat suits, Commander Coleridge and his team have been aboard the three Oberth class ships hunting for anything that might point them in the direction of a ship’s failure. The ships’ personnel have been nourished and released from medical care. Only one has died. Meanwhile, Captain Chirakis has been intensely focused on anything that seems suspicious as she walks from one deck to another whiles security checks and reports all areas of the station. After two days of gathering information, the crew will gather in the conference room to report their findings.

Most personnel from the Rodman, Chi Song, and Agincourt have been released from the Medical Complex. Engineering studies to determine why and how the ships were unable to move. The ships might have drained and dispersed power slowly, leaving personnel aboard to drift aimlessly through the nebula to their doom.

  9. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |18 December 2020 24 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.178 TBS is 0 hours - the time is 1100 hours (11:00 am) Aegis Local. Most personnel from the USS Rodman, Chi Song, and Agincourt have been released from the Medical Complex. A few were traumatized and will remain in Medical until they settle down. Engineering is plowing through information to determine why and how the ships were unable to move within Nebula 231. Traces of particles were found, denoting that the energy was probably drawn out and dispersed slowly, leaving personnel aboard to drift aimlessly through the nebula to their doom. Regarding the flowers, Lt Dran notes that they have some unusual characteristics, but they seem mostly harmless. She recommends that the plants be trimmed back to limit their growth and to learn more by it's reaction, if any.

Ships USS Rodman, Chi Song, and Agincourt are berthed for repairs. Medical is treating their personnel for malnutrition. Energy siphoned from the ships could have been taken by cloaked vessels and/or to test weapons.. Cdr Coleridge & Company will board and examine the ships. Science continues to examine plants that have appeared in various areas of the station. The children crept onto deck 188 to see the "ticking" flowers. Bad choice.

We just slew one of the dragons guarding the eastern realm right? Sierra Robinson: @ uhmm if I could...:: notes her suit :: Chirakis: Is there any possibility that the creeping flowers are looking for an area to take over and settle down? Scott Coleridge: @ According to logs, that shuttle was powered down while they were in the nebula, for what it's worth. Tae'Lynn Dran: That would be natural for any lifeform.

Tae'Lynn Dran: I would recommend the plants be trimmed back. It would be best to limit their growth towards any systems and we may learn more by it's reaction, if any. Sierra Robinson: @ Tarisa can you check the console for any data files? It is a long shot, I know. Dacia Sandero: ::settles into the saddle of her horse:: Alexis McFarland: ::Settles into the saddle of her horse:: Tarisa: @ ::Nods as she sits at a console, bringing up files.:: mimipavilion: ::helping one of the patients being released into their uniform:: Chirakis: :::nod to Dran:: Agreed.

Dacia Sandero: ::has a sip of tea as she goes over some medical reports and stuff:: Jylliene: (Med: temp quarters should have been assigned to the ships' crew, so you'll be able to direct them to quarters as they're released) Scott Coleridge: @ Hmm. ::scans the shuttle hull:: Tarisa: @ ::Begins her search.:: Scott Coleridge: @ Interesting, I thought so. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Snaps to as he wakes from his daydream :: Scott Coleridge: @ There's a residual electrostatic charge on the shuttle's hull. Alexis McFarland: ::speed towards the tower, urging her horse to go faster as they travel through the valley:: Tarisa: Miana> ::Her bird keeps up pace.:: Sierra Robinson: @ Electrostatic charge....hmm... but the shuttle....did not leave the bay during the mission according to the logs... Chirakis: ::turns aside to whisper and answer to d’Ka:: I know, Kh’éile. I'm listening and I understand. Sierra Robinson: @ My next idea was deflector control.. sir....Plus Tarisa , all those science sensors...right up your alley so to speak. Scott Coleridge: @ Right. So that means whatever affected the Chi Song's power systems created an electric charge in the air molecules throughout the ship... enough ionization at least to leave a signature on a large enough metallic object like a shuttle. Scott Coleridge: @::Robinson:: Makes sense to me. ::Tarisa:: Anything useful in the logs? Tae'Lynn Dran: ::marking areas on a station diagram to remove plants:: Tarisa: @ ::Shakes head.:: Not yet, but I will download them in case we miss something. ::Begins file transfer.:: Amanda Davis PhD: :::helping the rest of the crew... if they need to, that is.:::: Alexis McFarland: ::reading the file notes of the new content as she travels:: Sierra Robinson: @ I was thinking Tarisa...if the deflector dish, could....have been a charge accumulation area. as well...

Scott Coleridge: @::enters deflector control, which is a cramped room with just enough space for 3 suited people:: Alexis McFarland: It should take about a day or two to finish in intermediate difficulty. We can learn new skills as well as get new melee weapons in the shop. Scott Coleridge: @ Oberth class has an overpowered deflector for its size, to deal with possible hazards while performing scientific missions. The Chi Song's engineer did note that she and her crew tried to recalibrate the deflector to boost shields against the power drain. Alexis McFarland: I really like the look of the new battle axe Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Is zoning out at the main console, the noises around him fading away as he watched the investigation data come in along with the reading of his own scans :: Tarisa: @ ::Nods as she listens.:: Scott Coleridge: @ It had no effect, positive or negative.

Alexis McFarland: Hehehe. Though, I need to build up my skills wielding axes. I usually stick to bows and arrows and the broadsword. Chirakis: ::turns to Jyl::: Take a break, Commander. I'll take over so you can relax for a while. :::and so can she::: Scott Coleridge: @ True. Maybe that can reveal something though.

  11. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |11 December 2020 24 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.178 TBS is 20 hours - the time is 1000 hours (10:00 am) Aegis Local. The USS ships Rodman, Chi Song, and Agincourt are berthed for repairs. It is possible that energy siphoned from the ships could have been taken by cloaked vessels or be tested for weaponry. Cdr Coleridge and Ltjg Robinson will lead a team to board and examine the ships. The science team continues examining three types of plants that have appeared in various areas of the station. Curiosity led several children to sneak into a crawlway to see the plants on deck 188, and were quite surprised. Medical is keeping a close watch on the docked ships’ personnel. Most of all they suffer from malnutrition. Ragor Tal, devious and calculating, could be the driving force behind the illnesses, flowers, nebular mist, and probably several other schemes. Personnel connected to Rendezvous October are keeping close watch, especially Captains Chirakis and Je’rit d’Ka.
  12. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |4 December 2020 23 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.174 TBS is zero - the time is 1600 hours (4:00 pm) Aegis Local. The USS Rodman, USS Chi Song, and USS Agincourt were drained of power by unconventional means. The crews were left alone and are recovering. The children used the crawlway to see the flowers on deck 188. It was interesting.

Chirakis: ::turns to Scott, pauses, then nods::: Please do. Tae'Lynn Dran: I guess something in the air of this station just kicks plantlife into high gear. Alexis McFarland: Maybe?

Tarisa: Miana> ::giggles.:: Sierra Robinson: Chubs> ::waddles along with the group:: Alexis McFarland: ::hugs Miana:: I'm glad you made it back in one piece too. The plants really seemed to like you Miana… not that I can blame them. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Nijil smiled :: His name was Kaalh. I remember. Seems so long ago. Chirakis: ::::staring out the window to the commerce deck, obviously concerned about something:::: mimipavilion: ::finishes up the scan:: Kaalh, who's that? Tarisa: Miana> ::Nods with a frown.:: It was scary... Sierra Robinson: :: pulls up schematic diagrams of Oberth Class Starships...reviewing system layouts and power conduit systems :: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: He thought for a moment :: First kiss, well, err, her first kiss...Prani Alexis McFarland: ::nods:: Well, at least now you see why the plants are isolated down there. Just glad we got out of there before things got worse. Tarisa: Miana> ::Nods.:: Scott Coleridge: ::moves next to Chirakis:: Captain, is something else the matter? mimipavilion: ::nods, concerned that this type of time travel maybe not all that's expected:: Nijil tr'Korjata: I feel fine though, good energy... still not enough sleep. Chirakis: :::blinks... straightens up and has the expression of should I or shouldn't I:::: Annisha: What's up with those plants anyway? mimipavilion: ::makes note of lack of sleep:: When you were in Prani's body, how long did you sleep? Sierra Robinson: Chubs> I should of grabbed a souvenir Tae'Lynn Dran: ::still reviewing the Treevian data:: Alexis McFarland: I don't know.... ::feels something itchy on her back:: ...I think there's something on my back. I can't quite reach it. Little help Miana? ::a piece of flower is on her back:: Chirakis: :::stares for a moment, then replies:: My office, Commander. Commander Cayne, you have the con. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Aye. Scott Coleridge: ::accompanies Chirakis to her office:: Nijil tr'Korjata: They have twenty-eight hour days. About 8-10 eventually. I worked really long nights trying to diagnose the generator malfunction. Would have helped I knew the language sooner, or did not have whiskers. Chirakis: Secure the door, Commander. Alexis McFarland: ::Looks at a little flower that Miana picked off, she checks the others to see if there's anything on their backs too but doesn't find anything:: Well, there's your souvenir Chubs Scott Coleridge: ::secures the door:: Done. Tarisa: Miana> ::Pulls the flower off, shows it to Alexis.:: Chirakis: :::Presses a button to turn the lights to blue::: Alexis McFarland: Ooh. Must've stuck onto me when it grabbed me. Sierra Robinson: Chubs> :: looks at Flower :: That is …weird! mimipavilion: ::nods, taking note:: Anything else that you can remember that maybe could affect your body, specifically your brain? Nijil tr'Korjata: I think Robinson was concerned more than I, so if it makes her feel better all the better. Alexis McFarland: Probably best to dispose of that, I think. Chirakis: Commander.... :::sits on the edge of her desk::: Tarisa: Miana> Um...I do not think we should keep it. Alexis McFarland: I agree.. here's a waste reclamator. Sierra Robinson: Chubs> :: gets up close to it for a second then backs off like a chicken :: Nijil tr'Korjata: Not locally, I mean I was around the generator, no radiation that I could detect, but that was there and then. Chirakis: You are aware of Captain d'Ka's attachment to me, correct? Alexis McFarland: ::smiles and places the flower in the waste reclamation unit and disposes of it:: Annisha: (Thought about yelling "C3PO!") Alexis McFarland: There's nothing else in back right? mimipavilion: ::nods:: Alexis McFarland: ::feels her back but doesn't feel anything else:: Sierra Robinson: Chubs> Maybe it has some alien DNA in it that will.....turn us into plants! Scott Coleridge: ::sits in a chair:: Vaguely. I'm not sure I understand, you know… the intricacies. You're telepathically linked in some way, yes? Alexis McFarland: Ooooh! Plant person! Tarisa: Miana> I do not see anything. Tae'Lynn Dran: I think I would need an actual sample of the Treevian DNA to confirm a link. There's some similar properties but I can't confirm much. Nijil tr'Korjata: When I look back at my time with Muuhi, it was really amazing to be someone else, but still me. Chirakis: Yes. Yes it is. Completely attached to me no matter where we are or what we are doing. Alexis McFarland: I don't see anything on you or anyone else either. I'm gonna take a long shower and dispose of my clothes when I get back to my room just to be sure Chirakis: However... Tarisa: ::Nods, but gives a little frown.:: Unfortunately the Alien Alliance stands between us and the Treevian homeworld. Annisha: Sonic or real water? Alexis McFarland: Both? mimipavilion: ::nods:: A bit of perspective, one would say. Sierra Robinson: Chubs> those plants were too scared to touch me! Chirakis: He is blanking his attachment to me so I will not know what is happening. And when that happens.... Annisha: Oh yes! They introduced that. You can make the water dance if you adjust it right. Alexis McFarland: Yeah, I tried that a few times.. it's really cool! Chirakis: ….something is drastically wrong. And it pertains to Aegis. Tarisa: Miana> ::Giggles.:: Nijil tr'Korjata: Yes, would have been enough to be a male there, but I was a female...with all that entails. :: cocking his head to one side :: Sierra Robinson: Peter Pakled> :: sweeps the area in front of his store :: Chirakis: He is Sindarin, and he may not divulge anything that might happen.... Scott Coleridge: ::listening:: Nijil tr'Korjata: (sweeping makes the dust go...) mimipavilion: ::stifles a laugh:: Understandable. Chirakis: No what the matter.... Nijil tr'Korjata: Muuhi got me though. Really good. mimipavilion: ::nods:: Nijil tr'Korjata: For an entire week she convinced me I was expecting. I mean how would I know how it feels? Chirakis: The only thing he has allows me to know that it pertains to Aegis, and he is going to double the craft that surround our borders. mimipavilion: Well, that's one thing I can't tell you. Scott Coleridge: Have you thought about… just asking him? Dacia Sandero: ::finishes checking up on all of the crew:: Hopefully it won't be long before they're all released. ::to one of the other doctors:: Nijil tr'Korjata: Oh Prani was not, or they have one long gestation period. mimipavilion: ::side nod:: Sierra Robinson: :: ponders things....what could she possibly think of the engineering teams on those ships… did not... those crews albeit small were far more experienced than her, and could not stop what happened and apparently still do not know what happened. Still it was her duty to investigate...for if this nebula thing visited Aegis....:: Nijil tr'Korjata: There was a time I was worried about missing the birth of my child with Jylliene. Tae'Lynn Dran: Well, what I do know is that the scans of the Treevian habitat show similar atmospheric and radiant heat markings as the vines root chamber. But I believe these vines would be competitors for nutrition with the Treevians, not coexisting. mimipavilion: Understandable Chirakis: There is no need to ask him. He will tell me anything needed through telepathically. Tarisa: ::Nods.:: Sierra Robinson: Chubs> Oh well... Time for me to battle Klingons in the holosuite, I slew 100 of them the other day... Chirakis: And for now.... he has nothing that he will divulge. Only that the area is in danger. Alexis McFarland: Ooh, nice. We all slew a medieval dragon in the holosuites last week. Alexis McFarland: That was fun, but the plot was really long. Alexis McFarland: Have fun Chubs. Tarisa: When I was there, I just remember the large tree systems. I did not see smaller vines. The thing that stood out to me was the use of drones they employed. Chirakis: :::stands and turns to the window to lean against them::: Tae'Lynn Dran: I read about that. I guess if the vines start building little toy soldiers we should be worried. Tarisa: ::Smirks.:: Indeed Sierra Robinson: Chubs> :: waddles off.....his real destination of course is the candy store ..he does not have permission to use the holosuites :: Scott Coleridge: We always seem to be in danger. Chirakis: Indeed we do. Nijil tr'Korjata: How are you doctor, after... ? Chirakis: The need this time is.... ::::deep breath before turning::: Is Ragor Tal. Scott Coleridge: Him again. mimipavilion: I'm fine. Chirakis: Again? ::slight grin:: Chirakis: He has always been around us. Sierra Robinson: Peter Pakled> :: notes a short chubby Bolian child walking over to the Candy Store across the Commerce Mall as he sweeps... thinking....that kid needs exercise ::. Annisha: Have they sent us new holo-chapters? Tarisa: Miana> ::Nods.:: There was an update. Alexis McFarland: Not yet, I heard the new chapters got delayed. Sierra Robinson: :: notes the shuttle bay on the Oberth Class Vessel, small and only meant for science purposes it did not need to carry too much :: Hmm Shuttles... :: jots notes :: Alexis McFarland: Oh, cool! Must have just come out then! Tarisa: Miana> New content, but no new chapters yet. Alexis McFarland: Probably in the last few days. Ahh, I see. Tarisa: Miana> More side quests for treasure! Sierra Robinson: Chubs> :: waddles back to where the kids are...munching on sweets :: Alexis McFarland: More treasure is always nice. Nijil tr'Korjata: Okay. :: to Mimi :: May I ask another personal question? mimipavilion: Sure Scott Coleridge: ::Chirakis:: Well, if Captain d'Ka is trying to protect us from without… we should focus on protecting ourselves from within, right? Chirakis: Correct. Nijil tr'Korjata: Have you sought companionship yet? Maybe no one you are interested in on this station.. Chirakis: Although.. he is already within. How? I do not know. Sierra Robinson: Chubs> Hi guys I just killed five more Klingons....got bored...bought some Risan Cookies.... Chirakis: Commander..... Alexis McFarland: Oooh, nice. That was quick. Tarisa: Miana> ::Sniffs.:: I smell lots of sugar. mimipavilion: I have not on both questions. Chirakis: ::looks up::: What I have told you is classified, Commander. I will say nothing else except that, I need a drink. Annisha: There are holo-adventures not made for kids, so many of them Scott Coleridge: Understood. Sierra Robinson: Chubs> Mom says I have to eat after exercise. Sierra Robinson: :: looks up at the 3D holo display hoping answers will come :: Nijil tr'Korjata: As long as your fur is shiny. Alexis McFarland: ::chuckles:: I guess you need to regain your energy with sugar Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: Thank you Chirakis: Well done. Chirakis: TBS will be the next day at 10AM local. Chirakis: Commander Coleridge, comments? Scott Coleridge: Anyone who wants to join us on the away team may Scott Coleridge: Except the children Tarisa: lol Alexis McFarland: rofl Chirakis: Any takers? Sierra Robinson: Chubs> Mommy!!!!!!!!! Chirakis: Only a few are needed. Tarisa: I'm sure one of us from science will be along. Annisha: Age discrimination Dacia Sandero: Maybe someone from medical too Alexis McFarland: lol Chirakis: Contact Commander Coleridge if you are willing. Chirakis: Questions or comments from the the crew? Chirakis: Seeing none... Chirakis: Crew dismissed. Be well. Be Safe. Don’t forget your towel.
  13. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |4 December 2020 23 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.174 TBS is 0 hours - the time is 1600 hours (4:00 pm) Aegis Local. The USS Rodman, USS Chi Song, and USS Agincourt were drained of power by unconventional means. Faint traces of particles are everywhere, denoting that the energy was drawn out and dispersed slowly. The ships’ crews are recovering from malnutrition, and there is no sign of radiation. Questions to be answered: How was the energy disbursed without killing the crews? How was the energy drawn from the ships? Where did the energy go and what will be its use? It is paramount that we figure out how this nebular mist works and develop countermeasures. Starfleet will likely want to retask those ships as soon as possible. To that end, Captain Chirakis has suddenly become quiet and contemplative. As for other news, the plants that are growing on deck 188 intrigue Alexis, Chubs, Annisha, and Meg. In their curiosity, they decided to use the Ghost Squad’s crawlway to investigate the flowers on deck 188. It was a little more than an interesting encounter. The flowers enjoyed stroking and cuddling humanoids, but the children didn’t seem to enjoy that as much.

Scott Coleridge: ::Brown:: No, thanks, I had a light lunch. I need to … it’s not micro wormholes, I don’t think. What about a cloaked ship? Or ships? Some kind of cloaked array? Alexis McFarland: Pretty tight crawlway, I guess this is how you kids got around, eh? Nijil tr'Korjata: Muuhi warned me, given how long I was in their time. Amanda Davis PhD: :::paging through the information she has gained from the crew and a few other things::: Alexis McFarland: ::Meg nods:: Yeah, takes you pretty anywhere you need to go Sierra Robinson: :: partakes of more of her salad :: I guess I think...I am saying is ..maybe you should take some more time off Sir.

Alexis McFarland: ::keeps going as well:: Scott Coleridge: Not causing the drain. The mist does that on its own. But as an explanation for where the power went. Tarisa: Miana> ::Climbs out of the crawlway. Dusts herself off.:: Nijil tr'Korjata: Na, I just need a visit with the doctors. I should be fine. :: pause :: We need to find out who disabled those ships. Alexis McFarland: ::dusts herself off as well:: Nijil tr'Korjata: It's something I would do if I was constructing a base within the nebula. Scott Coleridge: While the advanced sensors might detect cloaked ships under certain circumstances, I'm not sure they could do so at such a distance...and the ships, if they were there, have almost certainly moved on now that the mist has dissipated. Chirakis: :::deep sigh as she pushes away from the window::: Alexis McFarland: Meg> Nice work. We just need to go down this ladder which should take us directly there. Scott Coleridge: But imagine... a cloaked vessel or group of vessels uses the mists to siphon away the power, and then they leave and disperse the mist. We have no way of tracing where that energy went. CdrBrown: It would still require a decently sized battery to store the energy, unless it was serving as a gateway to transmit the energy elsewhere. Sierra Robinson: :: pauses :: To develop a weapon system that leaves no trace of its attack is remarkable. And...a bit beyond my understanding of Energy Transfer Physics. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: nods to Sierra :: +Mimi+ This is Nijil. Scott Coleridge: True. So for now it’s just a theory. But the sensors didn’t turn up the tell-tale signs of micro-wormholes. I'm open to other ideas. Sierra Robinson: :: quiets :: Scott Coleridge: ::sighs:: Unless engineering can find something on the ships to give us ideas. Alexis McFarland: ::starts climbing down the ladder:: Tarisa: Miana> ::Looks down again.:: Tarisa: Miana> ::Starts climbing.:: CdrBrown: would the sensor turn up micro wormholes if they were hidden and shielded inside of a ship? Sierra Robinson: Chubbs> :: turns on a flashlight and looks down :: Oh man...Superchild time. Nijil tr'Korjata: +Mimi Pavilion+ I need to schedule an appointment. I have issues with my recovery. Annisha: :: Watching Alexis : CdrBrown: with the interference caused by the gas, plus shielding from the vessel itself.... it would make for a great way to hide things. Probably even allow whoever is doing this to use smaller vessels that are even more difficult to detect. mimipavilion: +Nijil+ Alright, when is a good time for you, I would like Dr. Davis to join us. Nijil tr'Korjata: +Mimi+ I am not swamped with work, so when is a good time for you? Sierra Robinson: :: sips her ice tea trying not to be an intrusive listener :: Scott Coleridge: So, I guess that brings us to the bigger question of... why? Alexis McFarland: Meg> Not much longer... Scott Coleridge: This is *not* possibly an efficient way of stealing power. Anyone who can pull this off can generate enough power. And our ships are not themselves damaged. Pump them full of deuterium and antimatter and they're good to go. Scott Coleridge: So what has been accomplished here, other than to bewilder us? Alexis McFarland: ::climb climb:: Sierra Robinson: Chubbs> :: finally makes it down the ladder...and looks triumphant :: Man, that was intense. CdrBrown: Charging a much bigger weapon.... powering a society where power generation is difficult otherwise..... an elaborate prank? Annisha: :: to Alexis :: Hey, what level are we on? Tarisa: Miana> ::Hops off ladder.:: That was a long climb... mimipavilion: +Nijil+ will now work for you Alexis McFarland: ::sighs:: 188? Chirakis: :::slow pace around CnC::: Alexis McFarland: Meg> We're almost there. Annisha: Can't be, they would have force fields in place. Sierra Robinson: :: munches some croutons :: Nijil tr'Korjata: +mimi+ Yes. :: to Robinson :: I will see the doctor now. Thanks Alexis McFarland: Oh, that would make our trip a very short one. mimipavilion: +Nijil+ Understood. mimipavilion: ::Amanda:: Can you join me in my office? Tarisa: Miana> We should rest and have snacks. mimipavilion: ::takes a seat behind her desk:: Annisha: If au hit the shield, it will get ya. Annisha: Everyone stop! Alexis McFarland: ::Nods at Miana:: I agree. The shield will get us, or the plant? Alexis McFarland: ::stops:: Annisha: The shield. Sierra Robinson: I hope you have a productive appointment sir. Be well sir. Alexis McFarland: Ah. ::moves closer to the others:: It's the type that shocks you? Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Says something in Yith without thinking :: CdrBrown: What if draining power from a few ships, in the middle of literally nowhere is just a test of their capabilities? Nijil tr'Korjata: :: walks off from lunch and arrives moments later at sickbay :: Sierra Robinson: Chubbs> :: The Bolian 9 year old is of course willing to break out the snacks :: CdrBrown: would engulfing an entire planet be an efficient transfer of energy? Alexis McFarland: ::sits down on the ground and takes off her backpack:: Annisha: I think this is as close as we can get. Sierra Robinson: :: stands briefly with a face of concern as her superior departs :: Tarisa: Miana> ::Has a seat and pulls out a few snack bars, handing them out. Then gets the juice boxes.:: Scott Coleridge: I mean, settled planets can produce a lot of power, sure. Alexis McFarland: Ah. It was still a fun adventure. Alexis McFarland: Can we at least see it from here? Annisha: I don't think so... I don't have a drone either. Amanda Davis PhD: :::sorting material as her lunch arrives next to her::: Thank you, Ensign. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: enters sickbay :: Doctor? Alexis McFarland: Yeah, I should've thought of that Amanda Davis PhD: Ensign> Anything else you need, ma'am? Amanda Davis PhD: Oh, no. This is fine. CdrBrown: On Earth, in the early to mid 1900s, they tested nukes in the middle of nowhere, where the general population wouldn't notice or be impacted Amanda Davis PhD: :::notes Nijil entering the medical complex::: Sierra Robinson: :: finishes up her meal and heads to Main Engineering for a late shift :: mimipavilion: ::Nijil:: I'm in my office. ::pages Amanda to her office:: Scott Coleridge: They did *what*?? Amanda Davis PhD: :::hears the page and moves toward Mimi's office:::: Alexis McFarland: ::eating some snacks:: Tarisa: Miana> ::Sipping on a juice box, she reaches into her backpack again, pulling out a small set of what looks like tools.:: Annisha: Well :: eating a lemon energy bar :: We did what we could. Scott Coleridge: I didn't realize our nuclear lunacy started before the Third World War. CdrBrown: Second World War. It’s what helped usher in an end to the conflict. Sierra Robinson: Chubbs> Man..are we giving up on seeing the plants? Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Goes to Mimi's office :: Alexis McFarland: ::eating a granola bar:: Yeah, I think so. I don't really know how to get past the shields. Amanda Davis PhD: Hello, Nijil, :::she waves, meeting him at the door:: mimipavilion: ::sees Nijil approach:: Please take a seat Amanda Davis PhD: ::sits aside to listen::: Alexis McFarland: ::looks at Miana's tools:: What are those? Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Sits :: Sierra Robinson: Chubbs> I hate shields! mimipavilion: You said you were having issues readjusting CdrBrown: A few starships might just be an inefficient amount of power to transfer. An industrialized moon, Utopia Planitia, Earth herself..... the gas can easily encompass objects of their size, and they would be able to drain/transfer magnitudes of more power than three ships can generate. Tarisa: Miana> ::Opens up the pouch to show engineering tools.:: Always try to be prepared. Chirakis: :::everything is strangely quiet in CnC, which makes her wonder::: Alexis McFarland: Wow, I didn't know ya had those. Nijil tr'Korjata: Oh I think her memories are with me. Scott Coleridge: If this mist is a weapon, and it can be deployed against an entire planet, that would be... troubling. Tarisa: Miana> ::Nods.:: We keep a set in our suite. Nijil tr'Korjata: I am talking in Yith without thinking. I've called Robinson "Kitten" more than once. A term of endearment. Alexis McFarland: Ooh Sierra Robinson: Chubbs> Will these get rid of the shield? Tarisa: Miana> I think so. mimipavilion: ::concerned, then looks at Amanda:: Nijil tr'Korjata: I see fragments of her life.. Prani's. Alexis McFarland: If you know how to use 'em. Amanda Davis PhD: :::listening::: CdrBrown: I think we need to look at it as just that. A weapon.... and who knows what their plan is with it. Try a space station next? Nijil tr'Korjata: I'm me. :: smiles :: As she described the process. It's not an exact copy like you'd do with an isolinear rod. Scott Coleridge: Then it is even more paramount that we figure out how this mist works and develop countermeasures. Chirakis: :::will speak with the commander when she has a chance, but now is not the time:::: Alexis McFarland: ::drinking her juice box, and resting her feet:: Sierra Robinson: :: arrives in Engineering asks for a briefing from the duty officer:: Sierra Robinson: Chubbs> Can't we just see though the shield to look at the plant? mimipavilion: ::nods:: That's interesting. CdrBrown: ::Scott:: we are going to need help to figure this out. I see 3 ships out there and plenty of resources... Alexis McFarland: I hope we can. I mean, it's not like I was planning to go up there and touch it or anything. Amanda Davis PhD: ::thinking::: Nijil, can you explain a bit more so we understand? Scott Coleridge: Good point. I'll talk to Dr. Pavilion about when the crews will clear quarantine. That being said, Starfleet will likely want to retask those ships as soon as possible. We can't have 3 ships and crews sitting around right now. Sierra Robinson: + Commander Coleridge + Engineering to Commander Coleridge. Scott Coleridge: +Robinson+ Yes, Lieutenant? Nijil tr'Korjata: Ia, e masani ona ou miti ... faatali .. CdrBrown: ::nods:: mimipavilion: ::looks at Nijil:: Nijil tr'Korjata: Sorry, still teaching the computer Yith. Sierra Robinson: + Coleridge + Sir, I was wondering if another visit to the Mystery Oberth ships was being requested. Alexis McFarland: Meg> It's all good for me either way. Tarisa: Miana> ::Gets up and stretches after having her snack.:: Alexis McFarland: ::Puts away her snacks and garbage back in her bag:: Nijil tr'Korjata: I get daydreams. If I have an experience like Prani's in my past I get a bit of mine and a bit of hers. Amanda Davis PhD: What if you speak in another language, Nijil? Try that. Scott Coleridge: +Robinson+ I'm not aware, but we could do another inspection. Do you have any specific theories you’re trying to test? Sierra Robinson: Chubbs> :: finishes snack 1 of 4 for the day :: Nijil tr'Korjata: I know four languages, which one? Amanda Davis PhD: Pick one. See if it works. Alexis McFarland: That was nice at least. Amanda Davis PhD: I know you know many languages. Nijil tr'Korjata: Ou te le mautinoa o faia ai se eseesega i mea ou te manatuaina. Amanda Davis PhD: And that means? Nijil tr'Korjata: I guess memories would be linked to language. Nijil tr'Korjata: What? Oh.. it was I'm not sure it makes a difference on what I remember. Tarisa: Miana> ::Starts slowly walking down the corridor.:: CdrBrown: ::heads over to the replicator to get a strong cup of coffee:: Computer, coffee, black, very strong. ::quietly to himself: this is going to be a long day.

Let me take care of some things on my end. I would like to accompany you, likely tomorrow. Sierra Robinson: + Coleridge + In any case...we got to find something...to help us...and there has to be a clue on those vessels. Chirakis: ::receives it and nods::: Thank you, Commander.
