USS Excalibur Sim Log - 02.21.21

MISSION BRIEF: After drifting dangerously into Romulan territory, the Excalibur has been towed back to the Neutral Zone by the RES Talon, who has also offered assistance in repairing their ship. Several Romulan engineers, along with their Captain, have transported to Excalibur to aid and observe.

William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:17 PM

William bursts through a grate again, dragging himself up into Engineering. "I heard there were Romulans on my ship!"


Indaura Ryssan 21-Feb-21 08:18 PM

:: Made her way down to engineering to check on the crew there, following behind Chocox :: Hold up Will.


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:19 PM

"What? Where did you come from? Were you in the Jeffries Tube?"


Irene Mincine 21-Feb-21 08:19 PM

Irene is at the science station looking pretty unhappy. "So... what do you want me doing, Commander?"


Laehval tTemarr 21-Feb-21 08:19 PM

::Turns to stare at the sweaty shouting human.:: Ie. We are.


Indaura Ryssan 21-Feb-21 08:19 PM

Yes, following behind.


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:20 PM

"Ah, very well then." William turns to Laehval. "Lieutenant William Chocox, Chief Engineer." mutters to himself "Half expected an N'Dak."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 21-Feb-21 08:20 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Runs a hand through his blond hair.:: Not much we can do except monitor the situation. ::Throwing Irene a glance.:: Make sure no one else sneaks up on us, or our Romulans don't have friends. Not that we could do much to stop them at this point, but still...


Indaura Ryssan 21-Feb-21 08:21 PM

Doctor Ryssan. :: to Laehval ::


Laehval tTemarr 21-Feb-21 08:22 PM

::Eyes Indaura, studying her.:: What species are you?


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:22 PM

"Bit personal innit?"


Indaura Ryssan 21-Feb-21 08:22 PM

Denobulan. Have you not meet someone from my planet before?


Laehval tTemarr 21-Feb-21 08:22 PM

No. We tend to keep to our territory. ::Thin smile.::


Irene Mincine 21-Feb-21 08:23 PM

Irene> Hmphs. "The sensor array isn't going to tell me much on emergency power but I can try to give some advance warning if we're about to get towed to Romulus."


Indaura Ryssan 21-Feb-21 08:23 PM

You are my first Rihan I have meet. Thanks for your help. Anything we can get you?


Laehval tTemarr 21-Feb-21 08:24 PM

::Turns back to Chocox.:: Enarrain Laehval t'Temarr... Captain in your language. But I was once the Daise'Engineer of the Talon. ::Waves a hand at Engineering.:: This is your department, then? It is... in quite a state.


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:25 PM

"Yes, yes it is. Unfortunately. Would've preferred you see it when it's not half taken apart for repairs. Actually...maybe not."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 21-Feb-21 08:25 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> They disengaged their tractor beam. So long as we're not drifting, I'm happy. Are you getting any sort of readings?


Laehval tTemarr 21-Feb-21 08:27 PM

Do au have engineering experience, Doctor? ::To Indaura.::


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:27 PM

"I'm going to assume Doctor Ryssan is here to make sure everyone here isn't injured."


Indaura Ryssan 21-Feb-21 08:28 PM

Nothing of note like Mr. Chocox here.


Irene Mincine 21-Feb-21 08:28 PM

Irene> She focuses intently on her console, which makes an unhappy-sounding beep. "Well... I can tell you that we're in space. The Romulan tractor beam did null out our velocity, so we can stationkeep with maneuvering jets. I think."


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:28 PM

"You flatter me."


Laehval tTemarr 21-Feb-21 08:29 PM

::Slight dismissive noise as she turned back to Will.:: My engineers are here to assist, and we've supplies. What caused your power failure?


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:29 PM

Lieutenant Lahl directs some of the engineers "No, no, if you're yanking, it's too hard and something is stuck. You're going to wind up on your ass if you're not careful."


William grimaces at the memory. "Power overload getting past the safety stops."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 21-Feb-21 08:30 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Moves over to check the tactical station.:: Any spatial anomalies?


Indaura Ryssan 21-Feb-21 08:32 PM

:: Nods then goes to examine the engineers ::


Irene Mincine 21-Feb-21 08:32 PM

Irene> She scans for any, but shakes her head. "Sorry, Commander, gonna need more power if you want more info out of the sensors. I couldn't tell the Romulans from a quantum filament."


Laehval tTemarr 21-Feb-21 08:32 PM

And have you repaired the power safety nodes in those areas? ::Looking back over the department as her crew began opening the supplies they brought.:: Our technology is not quite the same as yours, but will do for a temporary fix.


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:33 PM

"I actually was working on that when you guys beamed over. Was coming along well before I left."  


CdrMirandaHawthorne 21-Feb-21 08:34 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Grunts.:: And as much as I'd like to ask for more power to certain systems, it's a bit of a moot point at the moment. And Lieutenant Chocox might start yelling if we pile one more thing on him.


Irene Mincine 21-Feb-21 08:35 PM

Irene> "Probably has his hands full keeping the Romulan engineers away from our encryption matrixes."


Indaura Ryssan 21-Feb-21 08:37 PM

:: Scans the area for worrisome radiation ::


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:37 PM

looks behind Laehval. "Hey! Hands off the computer unless you're supervised by a Starfleet Engineer Lieutenant Junior Grade or above!"


Laehval tTemarr 21-Feb-21 08:40 PM

::She snapped something at the offending officer and turned to Chocox.:: You might want to pair them with someone before they get into trouble. They know your technology quite well, but will not have the required access.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 21-Feb-21 08:40 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> That's security's job, as well. Hopefully Chief Rex has a handle on it.


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:41 PM

sighs "Yeah, that's a good idea." William starts directing Engineers not actively putting devices back together to pair up with a Romulan Engineer.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 21-Feb-21 08:41 PM

Ens Reynolds> +Chocox+ Reynolds to Chocox


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:42 PM

+Reynolds+ "Chocox here."


Irene Mincine 21-Feb-21 08:43 PM

Irene> Sighs. "I know we need their help. I just hate that we do."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 21-Feb-21 08:44 PM

Ens Reynolds> +Chocox+ Ah, Chief... we've stabilized the power conduits on these decks. I think we're ready to start up the core. I've got these decks isolated so we can filter in a small stream to start, just in case.


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:45 PM

+Reynolds+ "As soon as we get the injector replaced we'll do it. It's taken longer than expected because they needed to cool down."


Indaura Ryssan 21-Feb-21 08:45 PM

:: Widens her scan as they are going to activate the core ::


CdrMirandaHawthorne 21-Feb-21 08:45 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Turns from his station to give Irene another glance.:: What's your beef with the Romulans? I mean, I know they're generally disliked because of their questionable tactics, but you sound as though you might have some personal vendetta.


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:46 PM

Lahl pulls out and replaces another piece of the injectors. "Alright! Everyone off the core! It's ready to restart!"


CdrMirandaHawthorne 21-Feb-21 08:46 PM

Ens Reynolds> +Chocox+ Aye, sir. We'll continue replacements, then. We've about half of the damaged nodes swapped out and the others bypassed for now.


Laehval tTemarr 21-Feb-21 08:47 PM

Were your injectors damaged? ::Turning to inspect the swirling warp core.::


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:48 PM

William turns to Laehval. +Reynolds+ "Acknowledged. Keep up the good work. Apologies Captain, but duty calls." Williams goes to his console. "Fire in the hole! Fire in the hole! Fire in the hole!" The rest of the engineers vacate the immediate area of the warp core as he goes through the startup sequence. "Unfortunately, yes."


Laehval tTemarr 21-Feb-21 08:49 PM

::She stood with her arms crossed, watching Will as he worked.::


Irene Mincine 21-Feb-21 08:49 PM

Irene> "When you grow up raised by an imperial politican mother, you hear... stories. Especially when several of her relatives were on Khitomer." She composes herself. "Sorry, Commander."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 21-Feb-21 08:50 PM

(( Give me a number from 1 - 10, Will ))


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:50 PM

(( 7 ))


Indaura Ryssan 21-Feb-21 08:50 PM

:: Makes adjustments to her tricorder, looking for as many particles it can detect ::


CdrMirandaHawthorne 21-Feb-21 08:54 PM

ACTION> As Will initiates the warp core's startup sequence, the injectors sputter twice before sparking to life and send a burst of power flooding through Excalibur's tortured system. However, the repairs put in place hold and only one minor power node explodes on deck sixteen, but it is a minor section and no one is injured.  


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:55 PM

William lets out a breath he didn't realize he was holding. +Reynolds+ "Status?"


CdrMirandaHawthorne 21-Feb-21 08:56 PM

Ens Reynolds> ::Coughing through the smoke.:: +Chocox+ We lost another of the nodes, but everything else is holding, sir.


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:56 PM

"Oh thank goodness." +Reynolds+ "Filters not working?"


CdrMirandaHawthorne 21-Feb-21 08:57 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Tilts his head at Irene.:: So, a familial bias, then. I suppose we can't help but embrace the prejudices taught to us until we experience otherwise.


Ens Reynolds> +Chocox+ They look like they're working, sir!


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:58 PM

+Reynolds+ "Just wanted to be sure. Sounded like you were coughing."


Irene Mincine 21-Feb-21 08:58 PM

Irene> "I guess so... hell of a time to be philosophical, huh?" Her console blinks back to full life. "Oh, power's back."


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 08:59 PM

+Bridge+ "Chocox to Bridge."


Laehval tTemarr 21-Feb-21 08:59 PM

::She moved forward to the main warp core station, examining the power readings.::


CdrMirandaHawthorne 21-Feb-21 09:00 PM

+Chocox+ Go ahead.


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 09:00 PM

+Bridge+ "Warp core is back online."  


CdrMirandaHawthorne 21-Feb-21 09:01 PM

+Chocox+ Good work, Chief. We've got limited power up here. Looks like our systems are coming online.


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 09:03 PM

+Bridge+ "Thank you. Reynolds' crew is still replacing power nodes on 16. I'm going to send a team to the impulse reactors and get them back."


Indaura Ryssan 21-Feb-21 09:03 PM

:: Can now breathe easier ::


CdrMirandaHawthorne 21-Feb-21 09:05 PM

ACTION> Most of Excalibur's systems power up, including lights, lifts, and sensors. Propulsion systems and weapons are still offline, however, along with all non-essential systems are still offline.


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 09:06 PM

William looks over his console. "I need tea."


Irene Mincine 21-Feb-21 09:06 PM

Irene> "Sensors are online, Commander. Monitoring for anything weird outside."


Laehval tTemarr 21-Feb-21 09:07 PM

You're power matrix needs to be balanced, but is strong.


William Chocox 21-Feb-21 09:07 PM

"Thanks. There's a lot that needs to be done."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 21-Feb-21 09:08 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Nods to Irene.:: If you see any blips, no matter how small, let me know. I want long range focused on Romulan territory.


Irene Mincine 21-Feb-21 09:09 PM

Irene> "Gotcha." She sets up the sensor array to monitor Romulan space.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 21-Feb-21 09:11 PM

ACTION> As soon as Irene focuses long range sensors on Romulan space, they pick up high concentrations of tachyon particles across the border where none should be.
