USS Excalibur Sim Log - 04.18.21

MISSION BRIEF: After several days of leave while repairs were made to the ship, Excalibur has disembarked from Starbase 37 Tango to begin a patrol of the Kallen sector on the border of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. The sector was only recently charted just before the Dominion War and had largely gone unexplored since. With renewed tensions between the Federation and Romulan Empire, Starfleet has dispatched us to patrol and chart the sector more completely. We will be tasked with establishing a long range sensor network in the sector, along with the standard science-y stuff.

William was on the Bridge at the Engineering station, monitoring the systems.


Captain Swain 18-Apr-21 07:14 PM

Clark> On the bridge, monitoring power usage. He was glad that they would get some quiet time on the way to whatever dumb place they'd been shipped off to next, though he did not particularly like the idea of setting up a whole sensor network. What if the engineering rats tried to turn them into explosives or something.

Brooding in his ready room with tea and a book.


Maryse Dubois 18-Apr-21 07:14 PM

::Decides to pay a visit to the bridge.::


Irene Mincine 18-Apr-21 07:14 PM

Irene's at her station on the bridge. She seems happy that she might actually get to do some science without everything exploding, maybe.


William Chocox 18-Apr-21 07:14 PM

William feels a pang, like someone said that it was going to be a quiet shift. He feels the urge to fling a heavy object at whoever had that thought.


Captain Swain 18-Apr-21 07:16 PM

Rex> Meanwhile, he was busy counting phaser riffles. They had replaced a number of units during their stop over and he wanted to make sure they had gotten working units, this time.


Clark> Turns to Will I assume you will be working with the blue shirts on the sensor grid deployment? It sounded like my job will be just coordinating the supplies around.


William Chocox 18-Apr-21 07:17 PM

"Yes, that's the plan."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 18-Apr-21 07:20 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Drums fingers on his armrest, reviewing the last sensor readings of their designated sector.::


Captain Swain 18-Apr-21 07:20 PM

Clark> Nods I am clearing out cargo bay 3 for you guys to use as a staging area for the sensor units.


Irene Mincine 18-Apr-21 07:20 PM

Val, meanwhile, was at helm and going over their course for the eighth time. "This navigational chart is 15 years out of date. I don't want a repeat of our last mission..."


William Chocox 18-Apr-21 07:21 PM

"Thank you Clark."


Maryse Dubois 18-Apr-21 07:22 PM

::Quietly observing the bridge crew as they went about their business.::


CdrMirandaHawthorne 18-Apr-21 07:23 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> I don't think we could repeat our last mission, even if we wanted to. ::Snort.:: But better safe than sorry, I suppose.


William Chocox 18-Apr-21 07:23 PM

"No, instead we're probably going to get into some other form of trouble."


Captain Swain 18-Apr-21 07:23 PM

Asher> Over tea Captains log -- The ship is proceeding through a little-explored sector of space, according to our orders. This region was mapped and surveyed about 15 years ago at long range, but that mission gathered only the most general data on the nearby systems and planets. And, in any case, a lot can change in almost two decades. I had hoped to return to our previous patrol route, but Command wanted to send someone "more seasoned" with "deep space exploration" on this mission. I suppose I should be flattered, even if it feels like a long time since I had that sort of mission profile. Nevertheless, ship and crew have functioned well. I was pleased with the efficiency of the engineering crew in working with starbase crew to make repairs.  


Irene Mincine 18-Apr-21 07:26 PM

Val> "We're not hitting any quantum filaments, or wormholes, or anything if I have anything to say about it."


William Chocox 18-Apr-21 07:27 PM

"Thank you."  


Captain Swain 18-Apr-21 07:28 PM

I have also put in commendations for the medical staff on their top work in getting the vaccine together under trying circumstances. I considered doing the same for engineering, but... he bit his lip Commander Rex's report absolved them of any fault in causing the accident, but I am concerned that safety mechanisms were disabled. I have to wonder if Miranda had still been here if she would have kept them in line. Not that I find Commander Stanton lacking in quality. He's fine first officer, but Engineering was Miranda's baby and ... he trailed off and drank tea Computer, delete that last sentence. Restart after disabled.


William Chocox 18-Apr-21 07:28 PM

William shudders, like someone walked over his grave. "Computer, what's the status of life support on the Bridge?"


Captain Swain 18-Apr-21 07:29 PM

Computer> Life support is functioning normally within established parameters.


William Chocox 18-Apr-21 07:29 PM



Maryse Dubois 18-Apr-21 07:30 PM

::Steps over to Will.:: Problem, Chief?


William Chocox 18-Apr-21 07:30 PM

"Felt like I had a sudden chill."


Captain Swain 18-Apr-21 07:30 PM

Clark> Looks over to Val with a a look


William Chocox 18-Apr-21 07:31 PM

"I'm sure it's nothing."


Maryse Dubois 18-Apr-21 07:31 PM

Well you are welcome to sickbay if you change your mind.


William Chocox 18-Apr-21 07:32 PM

"I will if I need it. Thank you Doc."


Irene Mincine 18-Apr-21 07:32 PM

Val notices Clark out of the corner of her eye. Val> "What?"


Indaura Ryssan 18-Apr-21 07:32 PM

:: Working around the medical bay ::


Captain Swain 18-Apr-21 07:33 PM

Clark> Makes a gesture to Will and makes a mildly problematic hand gesture to question his sanity


William Chocox 18-Apr-21 07:33 PM

"I'm right here Clark." William has a clear line of sight at Clark from the Engineering station.


Captain Swain 18-Apr-21 07:33 PM

Clark> Grins


Irene Mincine 18-Apr-21 07:34 PM

Val rolls her eyes and goes back to navigating.


Indaura Ryssan 18-Apr-21 07:39 PM

:: Looking over her schedule ::


Captain Swain 18-Apr-21 07:40 PM

ACTION> An alert rings out from long range sensors: bursts of tetryon radiation have been detected along our general course.


William Chocox 18-Apr-21 07:40 PM

"Oh boy."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 18-Apr-21 07:41 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Glances up at the alert, head cocked.:: Company or anomaly?


Indaura Ryssan 18-Apr-21 07:44 PM

:: Wonders where Doctor Dubois is, but goes about her business ::


Irene Mincine 18-Apr-21 07:44 PM

Irene shakes her head from the science station. "They're impossible to trace under the best of circumstances. It could be subspace interference, a black hole, or any number of things."


Maryse Dubois 18-Apr-21 07:45 PM

::Is still people watching on the bridge. She listens to Irene's report.::


Irene Mincine 18-Apr-21 07:47 PM

"I might be able to get some idea of the source with an adaptive sweep..." Irene types a new sensor program into her console.


Captain Swain 18-Apr-21 07:49 PM

<< Give me a number 1-20 >>


Irene Mincine 18-Apr-21 07:49 PM

(( 15 ))


Captain Swain 18-Apr-21 07:52 PM

ACTION> Irene's modification to the sensors reveal the tetryons are generally originating in the Optera system, a small, out of the way system that is uninhabited.


Irene Mincine 18-Apr-21 07:54 PM

Irene> "Got it." She looks up, proudly, from the science console. "They're coming from the... Optera system. I can't tell any more than that from here. Charts say nobody lives there."


William Chocox 18-Apr-21 07:54 PM

"That's interesting."


Irene Mincine 18-Apr-21 07:54 PM

Val chimes in. Val> "The 15-year-old charts."


Captain Swain 18-Apr-21 07:55 PM

Clark> I doubt an alien civilization went from primitive tool users to tetryon radiation emitters in the time since you were at the academy.

Clark> Or from primates or whatever. Maybe lizards, whatever.


Irene Mincine 18-Apr-21 07:56 PM

Val> A bit exasperated. "I mean someone else might have taken up residence since the war."


Captain Swain 18-Apr-21 07:57 PM

Clark> Hides a giggle, having accomplished his mission


CdrMirandaHawthorne 18-Apr-21 07:57 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> Or it could be something completely natural that wasn't detected here during the last survey.


William Chocox 18-Apr-21 07:58 PM

"Clark, I'm fairly certain the helmswoman has a rocket fist at the end of her arm. I wouldn't make her mad if I were you."


Indaura Ryssan 18-Apr-21 07:58 PM

:: Feels something is going on. Looks up as if she can see to the bridge ::


Captain Swain 18-Apr-21 08:01 PM

<< 2 minute warning >>

Clark> Tetryon radiation isn't very dangerous though, is it?


Irene Mincine 18-Apr-21 08:02 PM

Irene> "It depends. It's usually a sign that there's something outputting a lot of subspace energy. That's the part you gotta worry about."


Captain Swain 18-Apr-21 08:02 PM

Clark> Frowns So much for the quiet patrol.


William Chocox 18-Apr-21 08:03 PM

Throws whatever is handy at Clark "Never say anything like that! Go onto the turbolift, spin three times, curse, then spit."


Captain Swain 18-Apr-21 08:03 PM

Clark> dodges the tricorder Hmph!


Irene Mincine 18-Apr-21 08:04 PM

Val> "Before my rocket fist takes its revenge."


Captain Swain 18-Apr-21 08:04 PM



William Chocox 18-Apr-21 08:04 PM

"I'm serious about spinning three times, cursing and spitting. Get going!"
