USS Excalibur Sim Log - 03.14.21

MISSION BRIEFING: The Excalibur has arrived in orbit of Dourup IV where they are assisting in vaccinating the populace against a deadly viral outbreak among the mostly Tellerite colonists. We are also assisting initial stand up of several emergency clinics for those affected. Engineering is being assisted by science in continued repair efforts as well as sweeping for Romulan tracking and listening devices that may have been planted by our appreciated, if no paranoid, friends from the Talon. Asher has yet another new hair style.

throwing another bug into the pile. “How could they install this many in so little time?”


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:08 PM

<< Very efficient >>


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:09 PM

Ens Reynolds> ::Bedraggled, he turned one of the tracking devices over in his hands.:: I didn't even think they went this many places!


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:09 PM

Irene is in front of an open panel in engineering, digging through some optical fiber. "The sensor readings don't lie."


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:10 PM

Clark> On the bridge, keeping an eye on power usage as the transporters were working overtime beaming supplies down to the surface


William Chocox 14-Mar-21 07:10 PM

“Were they using robots?”


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:10 PM

<< Somewhere, on the Talon, I bet they have a pool running to see how long it takes us to find them all >>


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:12 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Reviewing the latest reports from the planet from his chair on the bridge, fingers drumming on his armrest.::


Maryse Dubois 14-Mar-21 07:12 PM

::In the cargo bay, overseeing the vaccine shipments.::


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:12 PM

Irene neutralizes a listening device with an energy beam from a long metal cylinder. "They're not the Borg, they've just had a lot of practice at spying on us."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:12 PM

Ens Reynolds> You think we can use any of these to turn the tables and spy back?


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:12 PM

Val> Monitoring their orbit, making sure they don't hit any asteroids or fall out of the sky. She looks pretty bored.


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:13 PM

Clark> This certainly isn't on the recruitment posters.


William Chocox 14-Mar-21 07:13 PM

“There’s two of them right next to each other! This is insane!”


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:14 PM

Ens Reynolds> These all seem a bit obvious, don't they? ::Worried look.::


William Chocox 14-Mar-21 07:14 PM



Indaura Ryssan 14-Mar-21 07:15 PM

:: Standing beside Doctor Dubois, inspecting a container ::


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:15 PM

Rex> Like Maryse, he'd decided he didn't want to don an isolation suit on the planet and was instead overseeing things from the cargo bay too Sounds like things are going well planet side. Gotta admit, I expected the Tellerites to be more of an issue.


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:16 PM

Irene> She checks her tricorder. "Apparently, most of them are passive reflectors tied into the data circuits, no power or transmitting device. You shoot a narrow-beam gamma pulse at one and you can sniff what's on the wire. No way to turn it back on them, unfortunately."


William Chocox 14-Mar-21 07:16 PM

“Damn. Would’ve been fun.”


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:16 PM

Val> Hmph. "Would you prefer getting shot at?" To Clark. 


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:17 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> I know I do. ::Absently.::


Maryse Dubois 14-Mar-21 07:17 PM

They do like arguing the small details, but once they get focused, it is hard to stop them.


Indaura Ryssan 14-Mar-21 07:17 PM

:: Turns to Dubois :: Wonder if there are listening devices in the vaccines....


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:17 PM

Clark> I mean I understand why someone like you, at the end of your career wants that, but I want some excitement


Maryse Dubois 14-Mar-21 07:18 PM

If there are, then I feel sorry of the Romulans listening in.


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:18 PM

Rex> chuckles


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:21 PM

Val> She stops what she's doing (which isn't very much) and looks sharply at Clark. "End of my career? Do I look like a 60-year-old astrophysics lieutenant running analyses on clumps of space garbage?"


Indaura Ryssan 14-Mar-21 07:21 PM

So is everyone taking their dose?


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:21 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Chuckles at the conversation.::


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:22 PM

Clark> I mean.


Maryse Dubois 14-Mar-21 07:22 PM

I haven't heard of any delivery issues yet.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:23 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> You probably should stop talking before you end up with something embedded in your eye, Clark.


Indaura Ryssan 14-Mar-21 07:23 PM

These containers are ready. :: signs off on her padd ::


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:23 PM

Rex> clicking on a padd The emergency center near the planetary power grid is up and running. Lt. Karos reports they're ready to start accepting patients.


Clark> Nods Right, of course.


Maryse Dubois 14-Mar-21 07:24 PM

::Nods.:: And the Western clinic?


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:24 PM

<< At least she didn't pull a phaser on him and shove him in the broom closet >>


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:25 PM

(( Mess with the bull... ))


William Chocox 14-Mar-21 07:25 PM

locates some more “You’d think they’d try to be more efficient.”


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:25 PM

Rex> Taps Should be online in the next hour.


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:25 PM

Irene> "They probably just cram as many as they can in. They know we'll look and find nearly all of them."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:26 PM

Ens Reynolds> Or they're just leaving these to be easily found so we think we got them all!


Indaura Ryssan 14-Mar-21 07:26 PM

WIll check now


Maryse Dubois 14-Mar-21 07:26 PM

Good. Most major hurdles seem to be cleared now.


William Chocox 14-Mar-21 07:26 PM

“That’s a good point.”


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:26 PM

Val> "Wouldn't want to end up with a yellow eye of your own." She winks with her prosthetic.


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:26 PM

Rex> I am just glad the transporters are working and we're not having to shuttle all this stuff down.


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:27 PM

Irene> "I mean, that's how I'd do it if I was in charge of putting these things in people's ships."


William Chocox 14-Mar-21 07:27 PM

“Just means we have to look harder.”


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:28 PM

Clark> Considered commenting that she could get that matched with her other eye, but decides to quit while he's ahead.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:28 PM

Ens Reynolds> Maybe we should let loose a few of our own bots to seek and destroy.


William Chocox 14-Mar-21 07:28 PM

“If you think you can catch them.”


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:29 PM

Clark> Oh, Commander. I did have a complaint from some of the junior officers. They're mad we're keeping replicators to low function and that the holodecks are in operative.

Clark> I may or may not have also programmed one of the ringleaders sonic shower to play Klingon Opera.


Maryse Dubois 14-Mar-21 07:30 PM

We would never hear the end of it if that were the case.


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:30 PM

Rex> To say nothing of having to load all this stuff up and out.


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:31 PM

Irene> "I can take a few of these listening devices with me and see if I can program a search algorithm into a few of our maintenance bots." She starts sliding some into a parts satchel. "Maybe figure out why my sonic shower started singing about Kahless and Molar while I'm at it."


William Chocox 14-Mar-21 07:31 PM

“You didn’t happen to complain about the replicators did you?”


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:32 PM

Clark> Frankly I thnk they're lucky we left the sonic showers up at all.


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:32 PM

Irene> "They broke the holodecks, they could at least let me have Swedish meatballs for dinner..."


William Chocox 14-Mar-21 07:33 PM

“We had to prioritize Medical Irene.”


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:33 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> People will always complaining about whatever... They'll just have to keep complaining until we get the ship fixed. Not much we can do otherwise.


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:33 PM

Clark> Nods


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:33 PM

Val> "Can't neglect basic hygiene aboard a starship. You know how bad the Old Earth space capsules smelled after 2 weeks in orbit?"


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:34 PM

Clark> Had considered auctioning off replicator rations

Clark> We have that gel sanitizer stuff.


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:34 PM

Irene> "Yeah, I know, I know, medical's more important..."


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:35 PM

<< Irene would probably be interested in rubbing someone down with hand sanitizer like they did on Enterprise >>


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:35 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> Maybe anyone that complains further will only be getting the C or D-listed rations.


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:35 PM

Val> "The detox gel? I thought they stopped using that before my parents were born. I've never even seen a bottle."


William Chocox 14-Mar-21 07:36 PM

“It’ll be back once we get the vaccine distributed. And once we get to a starbase.”


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:36 PM

Clark> Smirks I'll keep a list to Val Yeah we still keep barrels of the stuff ini storage.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:37 PM

Ens Reynolds> ::Already working on a tiny bug-finding roomba to crawl through the ship.::


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:37 PM

Clark> They use it on Starbases to deep clean the holodecks after deep space ships stop by.


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:38 PM

Val> "I am so glad I don't work in that department."


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:38 PM

Clark> I hear the worst is after a cadet training cruise.


William Chocox 14-Mar-21 07:39 PM

“Reynolds, how are you doing with the search?”


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:39 PM

Ens Reynolds> Still running, sir, but I have located at least three more and one possible. I sent a team.


William Chocox 14-Mar-21 07:40 PM

“Good job.”


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:40 PM

Irene> Assisting with programming the roombas. "Should be able to get the rest of them with these, I think."


Val> "Oh, they give you holodeck time after training cruises now?"


Indaura Ryssan 14-Mar-21 07:41 PM

I did get some good scans of our friends.


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:41 PM

Rex> I brought some food cubes if you're hungry doctors.


Clark> Did they even have holodecks when you were a cadet?


Maryse Dubois 14-Mar-21 07:41 PM

::Shakes head.:: I'm good for now, thanks.


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:42 PM

Val> "During the Dominion War?"


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:42 PM

Clark> Thats ancient history.


Rex> takes a bite Well, help yourself if you change your mind. The green ones are uh, chicken and broccoli and the blue ones are uh also chicken and broccoli I think.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:43 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> Clark, I'm beginning to think you have a death wish. ::Snorts.::


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:44 PM

Rex> We can literally go faster than the speed of light, but our rations haven't improved since the Romulan War.


Maryse Dubois 14-Mar-21 07:45 PM

::Smirks:: You're giving them too much credit.


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:45 PM

Val> Narrows her eyes. "Permission to determine whether or not Clark is a changeling sent to sow discord, Commander?"


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:45 PM

Clark> I am pretty handsome, but not a Founder.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:45 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> Do you want to send him to medical for a blood test?


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:46 PM

Clark> Smirks I am just saying, I was all of 8 when the Dominion War ended.


Rex> takes another bite Yeah, you're right. I think they've gotten worse.


Indaura Ryssan 14-Mar-21 07:47 PM

I am fine as well


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:47 PM

Val> "More like involving a pocket knife... I mean, uh, never mind, sir."


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:48 PM

Clark> Incredibly pleased with himself


William Chocox 14-Mar-21 07:49 PM

finds a cluster of five “Really?’ This is overkill!”


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:49 PM

Ens Reynolds> I'm saving them all to be dissected. They're really put together in a most interesting fashion.

Ens Reynolds> Though now I'm wondering if all those spare parts they 'helped' us out with are really tracking devices.


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:51 PM

Irene> "Of course they are. Wouldn't you do the same thing?"


William Chocox 14-Mar-21 07:52 PM

“We’ll have to check them up.”


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:52 PM

<< How sophisticated would a Klingon tracking device be though >>


Irene Mincine 14-Mar-21 07:53 PM

(( it blinks 12:00 and beeps loudly ))


Indaura Ryssan 14-Mar-21 07:54 PM

<shaped like a dagger, inserted into chest>


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:54 PM

(( It'd blow up the moment it was found. ))


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:55 PM

Exits onto the bridge from his ready room, his hair was wavy and flowing free and he had a beard again


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:56 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Glances to Swain.:: Captain. ::Not about to comment on his ever changing hairstyles.::


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:57 PM

Good news commander.


Indaura Ryssan 14-Mar-21 07:57 PM

You know I really should see some patients.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:58 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> We could use some.


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 07:59 PM

I just got off the horn with starbase. They've dispatched the USS Dorotea Bucca, a medical ship, to take for us. Once they arrive, we can return to starbase for repairs.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 07:59 PM

Ens Reynolds> We're going to have to tear this entire deck apart, aren't we?


William Chocox 14-Mar-21 08:00 PM

“Most likely! Always a fun thing!”


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 08:00 PM

The Dorotea Bucca will be here in 4 days.

Her Captain is an old friend. Nice fellow. Betazoid, named Kalas Umer.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 14-Mar-21 08:01 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> Are we going to be meeting with them when they arrive to discuss the situation? We're not in much of a position to host anything.


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 08:02 PM

Nods I figured we could make a house call to brief them.

Kalas always did like hosting parties. Smirks He almost got expelled from the Academy for a party he threw in the dorms.


Clark> Looks at Val, wideeyed


Asher> They do frown on having dom-jot tables and dancers from Orias VIII in the dorms. To say nothing of the keg of Romulan ale.

<< 1 minute warning >>


Indaura Ryssan 14-Mar-21 08:05 PM

I think all of the vaccines are ready.


William Chocox 14-Mar-21 08:05 PM

“I swear, this many listening devices should be considered a war crime.”


Captain Swain 14-Mar-21 08:06 PM

<< and >>
