Sierra Robinson

Counterattack A log by Ltjg Sierra Robinson


LtJg. Robinson had already decided it was going to be a drink night having worked the rest of her shift  uploading a critical data file including Science Officer Tran's  information on the molecular makeup of the deadly plant.  Sierra was determined to rid the station of the plant that made her violently ill days earlier and had killed numerous Pakleds.


Assisting in eradicating the " Foothold "  was Sierra's only way to fight back and she relished the opportunity to do so.  Her counterattack began with finding something to help identify the enemy.  Ltjg Tran supplied that information from independent research she had been conducting on mysterious new plants that had arrived on the station.  Her research had discovered three unique chemical compounds found at different stages in the plant's growth.  To simplify matters Sierra had named the three compounds PAK-1, 2 and 3.  Together they would be known as the PAK Series compounds.


Her next move was to utilize tools available to detect the PAK series compounds.  The primary tool available was the internal sensor array of the Sky Harbor Aegis meant to detect everything from oxygen levels to lost children.  Additional tools would come in the form of hand held scanners for more thorough searches.  Most tricorders on Aegis could be updated remotely to look for PAK series compounds in a short amount of time.


Robinson was aware that more plants could be brought onto the station, so the external sensor array system in theory could scan ships  approaching to dock with AEGIS for PAK series compounds.  Once vessels were cleared to dock, additional scans could be done with hand held devices.  If the visiting captains protested, she was certain the Captain would convince holdouts to comply with station safety protocols.


Once detected, the PAK- Series laden plants could be removed from the station.  The discovery of large quantities of the plant on deck 98 and the subsequent contamination of the station's air supply  required the biomass to be beamed off station into space.  Sierra was not certain where the plants would be beamed to in the future.  She thought the common practice of biohazard storage could work.  This involved loading the biohazard into specially designed storage pods to be taken eventually off the station.  That decision was above Sierra's paygrade of course.


Sierra rubbed her eyes and closed her work station.  It was time to recharge her own batteries overnight,  for tomorrow her battle against the “Foothold”  would resume.
