Maybe you could even simulate some of them on the holodeck. Chirakis: ::relaxed, hands folded::: And how long would you be gone? mimipavilion: ::waits for Nijil to finish talking to Scott:: Tarisa: Miana> Something with swords....Oh! and Magic!

Chirakis: :::still thinking, wondering:: You do realize, Lieutenant, that as soon as you leave Aegis, you might be apprehended by some who would like to see you dead. Annisha: Is this a human thing? Tarisa: Miana> I saw it in a book. Alexis McFarland: M..mostly? Though other races might have wizards, I dunno. Annisha: Are there any assassins? Tarisa: Miana> Yep Ethan Neufeld: :::eyes narrow in a momentary flash of disbelief, derailed before he can express gratitude::: The thought had crossed my mind. Alexis McFarland: Wanna be a wizard?

Alexis McFarland: Ahh, what's our first quest? ::to Annisha:: A normal sized horse, from what I know. mimipavilion: ::Nijil:: I think it would be a good idea to have someone walk with you to your quarters.

  2. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |5 June 2020 12 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.164 TBS is 26 hours. The time is 10:00 hours (10:00 am) Aegis Local. One thing ends and another begins. First came the technology virus, and soon after that came the issue involving a Yith named Th'Prani'Liloo/Prani who, in the name of scientific research, switched brains with Nijil tr’Korjata. Thankfully, all had been resolved and Aegis personnel had enjoyed a full day of rest. Hopefully, the second day would be as peaceful as the first. Commander Korjata is still adjusting to his own body. The science vessels USS Rodman, USS Chi Song, and USS Agincourt are still missing.

  5. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |29 May 2020 11 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.162 TBS is the next day. The time is 0700 hours (7:00 am) Aegis Local. Personnel on Aegis are relaxing, especially those who were involved with the micro-wormhole. Its manufacture by engineering and science, assisted by the Yith, is classified. Anything related to it is locked and heavily guarded in the security complex. After walking on his toes, speaking an ancient alien language, and dealing with a completely different species such as the Yith, Commander Korjata is still adjusting to his own body. The science vessels USS Rodman, USS Chi Song, and USS Agincourt are still missing.
  6. The Pain of Life O, that this too too solid flesh would melt Thaw and resolve itself into a dew! Hamlet Act 1, Scene 2 The lieutenant’s glare spoke of anger, though he struggled to hold it back. His cynical, pessimistic, and weary expression said I don’t want to be here, but she knew that. She pressed through his candor to gauge his limits, to see how far he would go beyond addressing her as Chirakis rather than Captain. He grappled to hide his emotions, but it wasn’t working. At least not yet. Lieutenant Neufeld, exemplary Starfleet officer, team leader, and 15 year veteran of innumerable covert and clandestine operations, had been tossed aside, as though one would toss rotting gagh into a fermenting garbage bin instead of a recycler. She had worked beside him several times, especially during the V’Mal attack with the Stone of Gol. And now, after being a Tier I Starfleet operative, he was close to psychological collapse. Well into nightfall, Chirakis Kirel, SI-5 operative well versed in Special Operations, sat in her office paging through information regarding Admiral Vera Farragut. Her unit had come so close to destruction that the Alien Alliance could have used them for fodder or handed them over to Ragor Tal. Instead, Admiral Farragut had been court martialed. Had she been put into the hands of Kirel, Admiral Farragut would have vanished. Mysteriously. Without a trace. Third watch had begun. As usual, Kirel left her office door open. Yeoman Drexler entered soundlessly, set a tray on the captain’s coffee table and asked if she needed anything else. “Thank you, Yeoman. That will be all,” Kirel replied with a forced congenial nod, then continued to page through the information. According to the records, Starfleet Command disbanded Lieutenant Neufeld’s team because Farragut had weaved her web so expertly that whatever she did was beyond remission. Though Neufeld was not to blame, as the team leader he bore the brunt of the situation and was now paying the price. That Kirel’s ire approached the boiling point was an understatement. Lighting in the office dimmed abruptly, the office door closed and locked, and silence prevailed. Forcing a deep breath to contain her emotions, Kirel swiveled her chair to face the main screen as the image of Admiral Solokov, Commanding Officer of Rendezvous October, appeared. The captain stood respectfully in greeting, then leaned against her desk, arms crossed. “Good evening, Kirel,” the admiral sighed, running his hands through thin, graying hair before clasping them to lean forward on his desk, half asleep and half awake. “If it is evening. I’ve lost track of time, unfortunately, but such is the situation these days.” His eyes narrowed now noticing Kirel’s clenched jaw. “From your expression, I would say that what we need to discuss is important.” “The Farragut Affair, Admiral.” she replied flatly. "Hmm…" Another sigh and he leaned back. “She’s been in the foreground lately, but not exactly the foreground anyone would want.” A glass of water appeared on his desk. He nodded off stage and downed the glass before setting it aside. “Admiral Farragut has apparently dug such a deep hole for herself and her constituents that they will never again see the light of day. But what does that have to do with Aegis?” “Lieutenant Ethan Neufeld.” Solokov frowned, his lips pursed somewhat thoughtfully as he stroked the stubble on his chin. “One of their best operatives, if not the best. I take it that he is aboard Aegis with his team, which is a bonus for us.” “Unfortunately no, Admiral. He is here. On Aegis. Alone. His team has been disbanded, possibly scattered throughout the system.” Solokov was now wide awake. “Disbanded?” he whispered intensely, his eyelids narrowing as his face flushed to the point that Kirel reflexively leaned back. “How... in Thor’s Gates... did that happen?” “In short,” Kirel continued, struggling to maintain her demeanor, “Admiral Farragut created so much damage that Starfleet Command could not disentangle the spider’s web." "The black widow," he scoffed into a snort worthy of a targ. "She's been called that behind her back for many, many years, Kirel, and now the truth has come out." A few moments of deep thought as he drummed his fingers on the desk still did not cover his anger. "What do you want from me, Kirel? October?" “That… would not be wise, Admiral,” Kirel offered as she rounded her desk to settle in, contemplating the outcome of going too far too fast. “At least not yet. He is definitely capable, but it will take time for him to overcome what he has experienced. Eventually, if we can locate his team and they are willing, October is a possibility, but not until they are ready.” “Then what exactly can we help you with, Kirel?” At that point, Captain Raza, commanding officer of SI-6, appeared onscreen. “Find his team if possible Admiral. Assure their safety. Nothing beyond that.”

Tarisa: Miana> What is Ale? It is under specialty drinks. Nijil tr'Korjata: I remember everything, but I gained a lot of memories while in Prani's body. She said it was a gift for all the trouble. :: excitedly :: There's more in my mind. Will just take time to unlock. Alexis McFarland: It makes you act all funny mimipavilion: ::nods:: Ethan Neufeld: ::wry smirk:: Why did you ask for me?

Ethan Neufeld: ::sits back in a relaxed manner, finishing his water... but feels like a cat petted in the wrong direction:: Chirakis: :::receives a message, checks, then turns it off without responding::: Nijil tr'Korjata: She did not do anything to my body? mimipavilion: Meaning... I don't think she looked to see. I believed she did behave herself. Nijil tr'Korjata: Muuhi thought she would. It looks like our technologies were roughly compatible. Chirakis: ::continues to relax, enjoying her dinner, and being away from CnC::: Nijil tr'Korjata: They are nice people from what I saw. Would have made a welcome member of the Federation.

  8. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |22 May 2020 10 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.161 TBS is 1 day. The time is 1400 hours (2:00 pm) Aegis Local. Personnel involved in the Nijil/Prani transmission are slowly settling down. Commander Kital is in the medical center with her bond mate, Commander Korjata. He will remain there until he receives release by Dr Pavilion. Station maintenance continues. Equipment that was used in construction of the micro-wormhole has been designated top secret compartmentalized. It has been secured and guarded in the security complex. Everyone else is relaxing unless paperwork is involved.
  9. No Worms in the Wormhole Chirakis Kirel, Captain, SI-5 The lights went out on the commerce deck, leaving everyone in the dark long enough for screams and a lot of grabbing hold of one another and hoping it’s the right person and not the neighbor’s husband. Or wife, but it’s usually pretty easy to tell which is which. Within seconds, emergency lighting flicked on, the screams and grabs settled down, and after a gasp with everyone looking up and around, a cacophony of questions in various languages—some not the best words to translate—echoed from the commerce deck into CnC. Pushing away from the CnC overlook, Captain Chirakis turned slowly towards the OPS console as she pinched the bridge of her nose and winced to quell a growing headache. “Lieutenant Hargraves, contact engineering and ask them if they were successful,” she ordered, her words close to a whisper. “And get security to the commerce deck to calm... those... people... down.” She heard his “yes ma’am” but nothing else as she slowly settled into the command chair. “They’re a little busy down there, ma’am,” Hargraves reported. “The transport was successful but the wormhole destabilized and overloaded the buffers. Main power is shut down to prevent a total system overload.” Something was missing. “And…?” “And… uh.…” Hargraves dug in to scan reports. “The medical complex is on emergency backup, and… emergency lighting is on throughout the station, but… you know… it’s not really good lighting, at least it’s not like we have here, or in the med complex, or in....” He skidded to a halt as the captain’s hand flew up. “Thank you, Lieutenant. Just keep me apprised,” she sighed as her eyes closed knowing that it would make it more difficult to stay awake. “And… unless it is an emergency, if anyone calls, I’m not available.” The last three days, or 72 hours, had been grueling to the point of exhaustion. Engineers and science personnel had worked through the nights while medical personnel stood ready for any situation, everyone hoping that as soon as the micro-wormhole engaged, thoughts would transfer from Prani to Nijil and vice versa. The stress of working and/or waiting had pressed their endurance beyond the limit. But now, with the aid of the micro-wormhole supplied by the Yith, Aegis’s duty was done. Except for the power outage, of course. Engineering minions could take care of that. As soon as possible, the captain released engineering and science from duty, ordering them to rest and recuperate. She would do the same, but only after the mechanism that created the micro-wormhole—at least what was left of it—would be locked and guarded in the security complex. If it fell into the hands of the Alien Alliance, not only Aegis, but the entirety of the Joint Allied Powers would be in jeopardy. Thankfully, the Yith technology was secure. After briefing the next watch, Kirel climbed to the station’s pinnacle where she could be alone, stare into space, and forget most of what could easily have happened.

Medical, Engineering, and Science are close to success regarding the micro-wormhole that will transfer Prani’s and Nijil’s thoughts into their own bodies. Since the micro-wormhole presses through both space and time, we are not sure what Prani will find on her side of the wormhole, nor will know what knowledge Nijil will bring back to Aegis. It’s complicated. Meanwhile, Captain Chirakis is monitoring information from Starfleet Command. The science vessels USS Rodman, USS Chi Song, and USS Agincourt have disappeared in a nebula. Starfleet Command has not heard from the scouting party.

Tae'Lynn Dran: ::enters engineering:: Nijil tr'Korjata: +Ops+ I think the Commander here made some kind of tactile interface to the generator. Scott Coleridge: We have about zero experience. Jylliene: ::pondering:: Jylliene: +Eng+ ...I see. Everything is intact? Nijil tr'Korjata: It took me ten years to build the generator. Chirakis: ::receiving information from RSE Praetor, that is in low orbit:: Scott Coleridge: +Ops+ Coleridge here. The first test was a success, in the sense that it produced a lot of data. I don't know yet whether we have the kind of stability profile we need. Nijil tr'Korjata: +Ops+ Integrity is holding. mimipavilion: ::looks up to see Amanda at the door:: Come in Amanda. Jylliene: I guess that means nothing actually crashed down there? Jylliene: ::glances at Chirakis:: Scott Coleridge: +Ops+ The generator functions as intended. The micro-wormhole stayed open for the programmed duration. But there is a possibility the internal structure of the wormhole is malformed, which would result in the loss of anything we try to transmit through it. Nijil tr'Korjata: +Ops+ I would wager a resonance was created at the point the generator released the most energetic particles. Tae'Lynn Dran: ::logs into a console and uploads the simulation data while also downloading the new results:: Chirakis: :::turns, nods to Jyl, listening::: Sierra Robinson: :: notes Tae'Lynn Dran's arrival ..another person she will have to introduce herself to when she gets a chance :: Amanda Davis PhD: :::Enters::: This waiting is the worst part. Jylliene: +Nijil/Prani, Coleridge+ I see. Keep us updated on the status. Nijil tr'Korjata: First step is to create a wormhole without much concern for spacial dimensions let alone time. mimipavilion: I know. Just glad to be using this time to catch up on the paperwork piling up on my desk. Nijil tr'Korjata: I mean, what are the chances we create one with an opening near a pulsar or blackhole? Jylliene: ::glances to Chirakis:: So it seems some sort of resonance with the test is what the crash was. No reported damage. Sierra Robinson: :: gets a status report and proceeds to download to a PADD :: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Looks up from his work :: Jylliene: ::not seeing damage reports coming in or anything:: Scott Coleridge: Wait, that's it. Chirakis: ::long sigh::: If we endure this, we can endure anything. Nijil tr'Korjata: The generator in my end is a bit bigger than this station. A small rogue moon helps. Scott Coleridge: I totally forgot about that. ::tapping on the console:: The Federation *does* have experience with micro-wormholes. We once lost a starship in the Delta Quadrant and we used a pulsar to jumpstart a micro-wormhole communication system. Nijil tr'Korjata: Itinerant pulse. I read about it. Amanda Davis PhD: Yes. Paperwork. Unfortunately, mine was done. May I help you with yours? Just sitting and waiting is driving me crazy. Amanda Davis PhD: ...and that's a strange thing for a doctor to say. mimipavilion: Sure. Amanda Davis PhD: ::sits:: Thank you. Sierra Robinson: Sounds like the old MIDAS array. Nijil tr'Korjata: Project Pathfinder if I read correctly.. and I read your text rather slowly Chirakis: ::contacts USS Missouri for a SITREP::: Sierra Robinson: :: walks over to Commander Coleridge with a PADD :: Power Grid Integrity data during the experiment sir. :: hands the Commander the PADD for inspection :: Scott Coleridge: ::takes the PADD:: Thank you, Ensign. Sierra Robinson: :: nods and returns to her Power Grid Monitoring Station :: Scott Coleridge: ::Prani:: Since our generator isn't as powerful as the one on our end, instead of trying to supply a constant matrix, we could use itinerant pulses of verterons to re-stabilize it. Scott Coleridge: Easier on our generator, but sufficient to keep the wormhole open long enough to effect the transfer. Nijil tr'Korjata: Commander? Scott Coleridge: Yes? Nijil tr'Korjata: You don't have the technology to affect the transfer of our minds, so what was the plan? If the ends of the wormhole were close enough I could be beamed to them. Nijil tr'Korjata: I could repair our systems in the past and reconnect on this end. Scott Coleridge: I thought science and medical were working on that part. I was just building wormholes. Nijil tr'Korjata: I have not observed their work on the transfer. Amanda Davis PhD: ::flipping through Mimi's PADD work::: Scott Coleridge: I thought we were going to create a wormhole and then your people would do... their thing. Nijil tr'Korjata: Well, if the timing is not right we miss the window Nijil tr'Korjata: We'd have to let them know when our next attempt was, then do it then. Nijil tr'Korjata: Or they could do the same, let us know when they are ready. Chirakis: :::USS Anjui is standing by::: Scott Coleridge: But if we manage to make a wormhole to the appropriate time, then they will know we're making an attempt. Scott Coleridge: ::scratches his head:: I'm confused again. Time travel is the worst. Scott Coleridge: Please don't tell me I brushed up on quaternions for no reason. Nijil tr'Korjata: Right. Muuhi should be listening for attempts, as well as Nijil... once he is over the shock of being...me Sierra Robinson: ::: monitors the EPS grid for any ...post stress issues :: Nijil tr'Korjata: This is a literal 'timing is everything' Scott Coleridge: ::management really does a number on your practical skills, it turns out:: Chirakis: :::steps toward Jyl::: (w)Commander, when it is time for the change, leave. I will replace you at OPS if need be. Tae'Lynn Dran: Commander, the temporal variable being misaligned could in one simulation result in multiple transferals over several quantum barriers. I think the Captain might be miffed if you imprint multiple Nijil's over the entire crew. Jylliene: ::nods to Chirakis:: Thank you, ma'am. Jylliene: ::sends a message to medical to ask them to inform her when they're ready to make the attempt so that she can be there.:: Nijil tr'Korjata: When will the next generation be attempted? Nijil tr'Korjata: Ours was on a ten hour cycle Dacia Sandero: :::gets the message::: I'm ready here, at least on my end. mimipavilion: ::gets a message notification from Jylliene and replies back that we're ready:: Amanda Davis PhD: :::looks up::: We're ready. Scott Coleridge: ::Dran:: That's true. Scott Coleridge: ::Prani:: We're capable of generating another wormhole at any time. I would like to go over this data some more, and consult science and medical about their progress, so we have a more concrete plan before we attempt anything... serious. Chirakis: ::her arms cross as she stands in the center of CnC::: +Scott+ Commander, report. Sierra Robinson: :: looks to Prani/ Nijil hoping that this isn't to disappointing :: Scott Coleridge: +Chirakis+ Captain, I'm encouraged by our initial test. I want to go over the data we just generated to make sure there aren't any subtle problems we still need to address. Then we'll be ready to convene the teams and take action. Jylliene: ::blinks:: Weren't they just doing their testing...? <q> Chirakis: :::sighs::: +Scott+ Very well. Carry on. Jylliene: ::sends another message to medical:: "You mean you're getting ready to do the transfer right now?"::: Jylliene: (written message, not verbal) Jylliene: ::confused by what she's been hearing from engineering, as they're still testing:: Dacia Sandero: ::makes an 'OK' sign:: Scott Coleridge: ::Prani:: I'm not worried about "syncing." Ten hours there doesn't have to mean here. We can permute the wormholes across the subspace axes until we locate the correct intersection. Sierra Robinson: :: listens :: mimipavilion: ::sends a message "We did several tests in simulation::Amanda:: Jylliene sounds confused. Scott Coleridge: Actually I could write a program for that... but we should look over this data first. ::gestures at the readouts:: Tae'Lynn Dran: ::already running simulations with the data:: Chirakis: :::returns to TAC::: Dacia Sandero: :::nods::: Yes, lots of tests. Scott Coleridge: ::Dran:: I assume you and Tarisa have been discussing the quantum coherence problem? I hooked a Heisenberg compensator into the rig in case that helps. Jylliene: ::msg to med:: I mean that when you are about to attempt the actual transfer, let me know so that I can be there. Tae'Lynn Dran: That has been part of the simulations though the computer models have not been consistent. Amanda Davis PhD: I should go to her, Mimi. :::stands::: She'll need a friend by her side. mimipavilion: ::replies to Jyl, "Will do":: mimipavilion: ::Amanda:: Well she's on the CnC right now. Jylliene: ::Mimi:: "Thank you." Scott Coleridge: ::Dran:: Good, as long as we're making progress, I think we're on the verge of everything coming together. Amanda Davis PhD: Thank you. +Jyl+ I'm coming down. Would you like some scones? Tea? Jylliene: ::puzzled:: +Amanda+ I'm...on duty. Tea? I suppose? Thank you. Chirakis: :::message from RSE Fek'lhr::: Jylliene: ::increasingly confused as to whether medical understood what she was asking or not:: Amanda Davis PhD: +Jyl+ I'll be right down. Amanda Davis PhD: :::tea in hand, she enters the lift::: CnC Tae'Lynn Dran: Not to divert from the current plan but would simply disassociating the entanglement clear the overwritten personality and allow the natural synaptic pattern to return? Jylliene: ::continues running analyses of power patterns:: Amanda Davis PhD: :::enters CnC with the tea... plus a few scones::: Chirakis: ::turns:: Doctor Davis. ::nods::: Scott Coleridge: ::Dran:: My understanding is that this is not a true entanglement phenomenon but rather a complete synaptic repatterning at the quantum level. But I'm not the neurologist. Sierra Robinson: :: focuses in on energy readings supplying the warp fields that keep the subspace pocket in the power core intact :: Amanda Davis PhD: Hello, Captain. :::moves to Jyl::: Tea... and a few scones, just in case. ::turns:: Captain, would you like some scones as well? Jylliene: Thank you ::smiles:: Chirakis: :::slight turn in her direction::: Thank you, no. Perhaps later. Dacia Sandero: ::sipping her tea with a scone as she waits for everything to get started::: Amanda Davis PhD: ::settles in at Aux OPS::: I'll join you. It's been a trying few days. Sierra Robinson: :: opens another window on her terminal and reads if anything ...wormhole related could affect the chamber :: Jylliene: That it has been. Jylliene: ::nods in agreement:: Tae'Lynn Dran: Then getting the transfer matrix stable is even more of a concern. One inversion could be fatal. I am rather surprised it worked in the first place without casualties. Chirakis: 10:55 PM Scott Coleridge: Their technology seems to be quite advanced in this respect. Scott Coleridge: ::Dran:: I appreciate your help with reviewing the data. Fresh eyes and all. I think I need to go talk to medical and make sure they're ready on their end. If you'll excuse me. Scott Coleridge: (q) Maybe keep an eye on... our guest. Tae'Lynn Dran: Perhaps, though I think a return method would have been a good idea. Somewhat like inventing supersonic flight before perfecting the landing gear don't you think? Chirakis: ((two minutes)) Tae'Lynn Dran: ::whispers:: Understood.

  13. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |8 May 2020 8 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.159 TBS is 1 minute. The time is 1200 hours (12:00 am) Aegis Local. Medical, Engineering, and Science continue to work against time to transfer Prani’s thoughts to her own body and reinstate Commander Korjata’s thoughts. They are creating a stable micro-wormhole that will allow the switch through space and time. If everything goes well, the commander’s brain will contain his thoughts and Prani’s brain will contain her own thoughts. It’s complicated. Meanwhile, Captain Chirakis is monitoring information from Starfleet Command. The science vessels USS Rodman, USS Chi Song, and USS Agincourt have disappeared in a nebula. Starfleet Command has ordered a scouting party.
  14. More to the Story Chirakis Kirel, Captain, SI-5 The Day Before - 6 June 2388 Silence reigned in Captain Chirakis’s office, so much so that it felt like a war room, and it very well could be. The office door’s external red light demanded complete privacy. Interior lighting turned to blue, and sound melted close to silence, allowing them to discuss classified information. For several hours the captain, Admiral Solokov, Captain Raza, and Vice Admiral Baldwin had been discussing the Alien Alliance, especially the empty stealth vessel that brought deadly viruses into Aegis space. USS Missouri destroyed the ship, then, not knowing it was contaminated, brought the ship aboard for inspection. Soon, the virus spread, causing the deaths of 37 Missouri personnel. Taking that into account, they discussed the technological virus on Aegis, especially whether the Aegis virus was an attack or a simple reaction to faulty technology. They had no definitive answer. The discussion continued, all focusing on Aegis. How, when, and where might the Alien Alliance attack? What is the most likely area to attack first? What strategies are most likely? Would they use starships, incendiary weapons, viral or biological weapons, weapons that would drag ships off course and into the nebulae, and how would they draw attention to one area before attacking another. Soon, the conversation segued into an alien fleet that had recently entered the nebulae, immense delta-winged stealth ships similar to the one that attempted to crash into Aegis. “How many of these ships have been seen, Admiral?” Kirel asked Solokov. “We know of seven so far. I don’t doubt that there are more crossing into Allied Powers’ space, though the first seven are the only ones we have detected.” “And the task force in Aegis space is presently…?” “USS Missouri, Admiral. They have moved into position just outside of Aegis space. RSE Praetor is in low orbit. IKS Fek’lhr and her support vessels are… somewhere in the area. USS Anhui is standing by.” “And they are cloaked?” “They have that capability, Admiral. However, if the Alien Alliance stealth vessels are capable of cloaking, we are in greater danger than expected.” “Um…” Solokov leaned back to rest an elbow on his chair. “Admiral Baldwin, anything else to discuss?” “No, Admiral.” “Captain Raza, anything new from SI-5?” “Other than the situation regarding a micro-wormhole, no, Admiral.” “Yes, the micro-wormhole.” Solokov’s lips pursed as he flipped his tablet over to take a look. “Progress in that?” “Some, Admiral. They are making progress, though slowly. It’s a sensitive situation. As soon as I know, you will be informed.”

Tae'Lynn Dran: No, not really. But then not as bad as the one where we breach multiple dimensional barriers. Then we'd get to wreck several different realities at once. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: to Coleridge :: Yes, the Federation has not generated many.

Nijil tr'Korjata: :: thinks :: It's not designed for that per se, but we'd have to route the warp plasma. I'll have to look into it. I don't know enough about specific starships. Scott Coleridge: +Ops+ Coleridge to Ops. Jylliene: +Coleridge+ Ops here. Go ahead, sir. Sierra Robinson: I hope this works for you Prani. Tarisa: ::Nods, trying not to think about worst case scenarios.:: Chirakis: ::shifts again toward the stealth vessel's angle of approach::: Chirakis: ::snaps for future review::: Sierra Robinson: :: notes Starship Captains with their ships hooked up to the experiment would probably want her servicing sonic heads the rest of her career :: Nijil tr'Korjata: I was thinking of Rihan vessels, they use artificial black holes as a power source. Scott Coleridge: +Jylliene+ Commander, I'm about to test the wormhole generator. I'm only going to establish it for a few hundred microseconds, so total the power drain shouldn't be too bad. But you will notice it for up to a minute as the capacitors build charge. Chirakis: ::thought::: +com+ Commander Coleridge, is there any part of the station that we should shut down when you make the transfer? Sierra Robinson: The one you...err...Nijil showed me in the shuttlebay. yes..a bit small but still lots of power. Chirakis: ::then looks to Jyll, hearing her conversation with Scott::: Sierra Robinson: :: taps and notes power reading are remaining nominal :: Scott Coleridge: +Chirakis+ I'm not sure about specific parts, Captain. For testing, the auxiliary power should be enough to supplement what we're doing. I'll leave it up to Commander Kital to manage it as she sees fit. Once we're ready for the real deal, we'll need to decide what systems to shut down for the actual transfer event. Nijil tr'Korjata: Rihans have larger vessels and larger AQS systems Chirakis: +Scott+ Understood. Scott Coleridge: ::sees a member of his team approach:: Ah, my requisition. Thank you.

Scott Coleridge: Ok, so this will generate an event horizon for up to 500 µsecs, just long enough to confirm parameter stability. Jylliene: ::enters the parameters and sends them:: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Smiles, reminds her of her tests years ago :: Chirakis: COM> Aegis OPS, parameters confirmed. Vector established. Departing.

Chirakis: In our next episode of As Aegis Turns, we will find out. Chirakis: Commander Coleridge, comments for the crew? Scott Coleridge: I feel like this is maybe not having the effect on Scott that it should. Chirakis: Methinks that he's having too much fun. Sierra Robinson: Fun is good Chirakis: After all, engineering... getting your hands dirty for once.... flipping switches.... Jylliene: Or comically big levers Chirakis: Or that. Scott Coleridge: Hey now, I never said it was *comically big*. Don't lever-shame me. Nijil tr'Korjata: Ludicrous speed... Chirakis: ::stifles a grin:: Chirakis: Anything else?
