USS Excalibur Sim Log - 08.30.20

Cptn Swain: MISSION BRIEF: The "rescue" team has found the science team remarkably intact, but they do need some help!  Will, Maryse and Rex are working at the man camp to help with a battery problem. Indura and Irene are working with the science team on samples while Reynolds makes repairs to their transmitter.

William Chocox: @Alright, Dr. Dubois, I would advise you to stand back a bit. I'm about to do percussive maintenance.

Irene Mincine: :: Irene is examining the samples in the lab. :: "Do you have these reagents? I want to see how they react to this..."

Cptn Swain: @Rex>. ::Making his way back to the shuttle::

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: #Ens Reynolds> ::Tinkering in the comms shed, trying to calibrate one of the power units to emit a modified signal.::

Indaura Ryssan: :: Working with Irene ::

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: ((::slaps them with a # ::))

William Chocox: @::starts banging on the emitter with a spanner:: Alright, let's see if this works again. ::attempts to turn it on, hoping to hear a hum::

Irene Mincine: # :: Receives a #. ::

Cptn Swain: @Collan> ::Pops into the area where will is working:: Can I get you anything?

Maryse Dubois: @ ::Standing back.::

William Chocox: @::hears a hum:: Nothing right now, I do believe the percussive maintenance worked this time.

Cptn Swain: @Collan> ::Smirks:: tried that.

William Chocox: @Hm?

Cptn Swain: @Collan> I tried that. Oh... Doctor Ferris Collan, I am the team's engineer as such.

Indaura Ryssan: (test)

William Chocox: @ Lieutenant William Chocox, Chief Engineer of the Excalibur. I was more ecstatic about getting this emitter working. Hopefully it'll protect the batteries.

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: # Dr. Noel Harris> ::Pops back into the lab to check on Irene and Indaura.:: So, have you found our specimens interesting? ::She brought a canister with her and inserted it into the containment field.::

Cptn Swain: @Collan> ::Nods:: Let me know if you need something.

Irene Mincine: # :: Irene looks to the lab entrance when Dr. Harris enters. She looks like she's having a lot of fun. :: "Oh, yeah, I love these things. What's in the can?"

Maryse Dubois: @ ::Checking on the patient.::

Cptn Swain: @Collan> I am not really an engineer. ::Smirks::

William Chocox: @Do you guys solely rely on batteries like this? And everyone's an engineer, it's just a question as to what they're an engineer of. Dr. Dubois is an engineer of the human body. And you've been doing a good job.

Cptn Swain: @Collan> Well we'd planned on using solar but there's not enough getting through the atmosphere.

William Chocox: @Hm...if we were able to get them bigger maybe...

William Chocox: @Or more of them.

William Chocox: @Wait, how windy is this area normally?

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: # Dr. Noel Harris> Another sample, it seems. They believe this one is a bit older than the others. ::She pressed the load sequence and the canister was sucked into the containment unit to be extracted. A moment later, another group of microbes appears on the screen, highly magnified to show an interesting spiky structure.::

Cptn Swain: @Collan> Pretty windy, what are you thinking?

William Chocox: @Wind turbines.

William Chocox: @We'd need to send a supply ship with them and people to put them together, but wind turbines would be great here.

Indaura Ryssan: # :: listens ::

Cptn Swain: @Collan> ::tips his head:: Not a bad thought.

Irene Mincine: # "Now that's something..." :: She looks at the results on the screen. :: "Older than the rest? It's got a different anatomical form, certainly. I'm not sure how we get from these old ones to the new ones, though..."

William Chocox: @Assuming there isn't something weird here that would affect it.

Indaura Ryssan: # what brought you to this planet in the first place?

Cptn Swain: @Collan> Worth looking into.

Maryse Dubois: @ ::Walking back over to Will.:: The lead blanket on the patient seems to help with the setting bone. But the emitter would be even better. Any luck?

William Chocox: @::points to where it's humming:: I'm fairly certain I got it to work.

Maryse Dubois: @ Good. Any idea how long it will take to clear out the radiation from the area?

William Chocox: @Uh...If you give me a moment. ::starts doing math frantically in his head::

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: # Dr. Noel Harris> There has to be a linkage we haven't discovered yet. ::She wrinkled her nose as she set the scanners to extrapolate the data before throwing Indaura a glance.:: A good question! Thermal scans of the planet indicated buried structures, but they turned out to be geological formations. Our samples of the planet soil showed these interesting results, however.

Irene Mincine: # "Do we know how old the formations are compared to the various samples?" :: She watches the scanners work. :: "That might help us figure out a linkage." :: Irene leans against a table, in thought. She loved this part of her job. ::

William Chocox: @I honestly have no clue off the top of my head.

Indaura Ryssan: # :: shakes her head, not understanding why they are even here ::

Maryse Dubois: @ ::Smirks.:: I suppose soon enough.

Cptn Swain: @Rex> ::Arriving at the shuttle, he started to open the comms but the shuttle power supply seemed to be running out:: Oh... lovely.

William Chocox: @I try, but there's a reason I'm an engineer not a scientist.

Cptn Swain: @Rex> +Will+ Rex to Chocox

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: # Dr. Noel Harris> The formations are much younger than the microbes, so we think they are unrelated. We're still in the process of investigating, however. ::She glanced at the two scientists.:: Would you like a tour of the cave systems or do you need to be returning to your group?

William Chocox: @+Rex+ Chocox here.

Indaura Ryssan: # that could be fruitful

Cptn Swain: @Rex> +Will+ I think we have a problem.

William Chocox: @+Rex+ I don't like problems.

Irene Mincine: # :: Irene looks very excited. :: "I'd love to see the cave systems. We better tell Reynolds where we're going, though."

Cptn Swain: @Rex>+Will+ Same, but it looks like the power systems for the shuttle are being effected by whatever is messing with the batteries.

William Chocox: @::swears:: +Rex+ That is very bad.

Cdr Miranda Hawthorne: # Dr. Noel Harris> Very well. Just come down to the dig site when you're ready. Take the blue lit path and you'll find me.

Cptn Swain: @Rex> +Will+ I am putting everything into stand by to conserve as much power as we can, but this shouldn't be happening. We have a M/AM unit.

Irene Mincine: # :: Irene smiles wide. :: "Understood. Dr. Ryssan, go with Dr. Harris. I'll catch up." :: She bounces off to find Ensign Reynolds. ::

Maryse Dubois: @ ::Listening.:: What if he used the ship's shields?

Indaura Ryssan: # :: looks :: delightful, let's go

Maryse Dubois: @ In the same manner that we are using the emitters to block the radiation.

Cptn Swain: ...and...

William Chocox: @+Rex+ I'm aware...We need to contact Starfleet as soon as possible, or they'll be sending someone else out here to find us...or write us off as lost.

Cptn Swain: @Rex> +Will+ I am sending a message before powering down the array.

Indaura Ryssan: # :: with doctor harris ::
