USS Excalibur Sim Log - 08.29.21

MISSION BRIEF: Excalibur remains in orbit of Optera IV where we are working to close a language barrier with a species of giant insects. Meanwhile, science continues to investigate the mysterious energy barrier around the planet's core.

Captain Swain 29-Aug-21 07:05 PM

Rex> The creatures have largely seemed to ignore us now.


On the bridge hovering at the science stations


Maryse Dubois 29-Aug-21 07:06 PM

::Has the UT update ready to go.::


Irene Mincine 29-Aug-21 07:07 PM

Irene> Now working all three science consoles at once, somehow. "Down there, sir. At a depth of 200 kilometers. The same energy readings as the towers."


Captain Swain 29-Aug-21 07:08 PM

Nods Isolate points this section. That can't be a natural structure at that depth.


William Chocox 29-Aug-21 07:08 PM

William looks over the engines +Bridge+ "Engineering to Bridge."


Captain Swain 29-Aug-21 07:09 PM

Clark> +Will+ Operations, go ahead.


William Chocox 29-Aug-21 07:10 PM

+Clark+ "Engines have been running, any bugs coming our way?"


Irene Mincine 29-Aug-21 07:11 PM

Irene> She's mostly working the center console. The left and right consoles are all full of sensor parameter settings. "It's shielded. I can't get a good reading on what it is, but it's certainly artificial."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 29-Aug-21 07:12 PM

Ens Reynolds> ::About to pull his hair out with their experimental resonators they've been trying to modify with little results.::


Captain Swain 29-Aug-21 07:13 PM

Clark> +Engineering+ They seen to be leaving us alone, for now.


William Chocox 29-Aug-21 07:13 PM

+Clark+ "Thank you, I need to take care of Reynolds before he gives himself a bald spot." He turns to Reynolds "Alright, what's wrong here?"


Captain Swain 29-Aug-21 07:14 PM

Frowns, looks over to Jalen How is the translator matrix coming?


Indaura Ryssan 29-Aug-21 07:15 PM

:: Watching the translator ::


CdrMirandaHawthorne 29-Aug-21 07:16 PM

Ens Reynolds> ::Sighs and throws up his hands.:: I can't get the Dilithium matrix to provide a stable linkage. I think we need to tie it into the phase coils to get anything workable.


William Chocox 29-Aug-21 07:17 PM

"Alright, that sounds like a good idea. Let's see how it goes." He walks over next to Reynolds and sees what they'll need to do.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 29-Aug-21 07:18 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::He checked his padd.:: Looks like medical has wrapped up their compilation of similar languages. That, along with what we collected ourselves, gives us a good foundation. Now, we're just waiting on engineering.


Captain Swain 29-Aug-21 07:18 PM



Maryse Dubois 29-Aug-21 07:18 PM

::Grabs a drink from the replicator, sipping it.::


Irene Mincine 29-Aug-21 07:20 PM

Irene> Frustrated, Irene kicks the paneling under the center science console. "I can't penetrate the shielding at that depth through all the solanogen, sir."


Captain Swain 29-Aug-21 07:21 PM

Takes a drink of tea Maybe they can help us. motions to the bugs


CdrMirandaHawthorne 29-Aug-21 07:23 PM

Ens Reynolds> ::Brings up the computer simulations of their resonator scenarios and all of the pending errors.:: I just can't get the phase modulation right.


Indaura Ryssan 29-Aug-21 07:24 PM

Anything yet?


William Chocox 29-Aug-21 07:24 PM

"I see...have you run a simulation if you do tie it into the phase coils?"


Indaura Ryssan 29-Aug-21 07:24 PM

(are we planetside?)


Irene Mincine 29-Aug-21 07:24 PM

Irene> "Hi space bugs. Do you know how to penetrate tetryon-based energy shielding on a 1.43GHz wavelength?" She shrugs.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 29-Aug-21 07:25 PM

Ens Reynolds> No, not yet. Haven't had the time. You want to do the honors?


Maryse Dubois 29-Aug-21 07:25 PM

::Shakes head.:: Waiting on Engineering to finish their device.


Indaura Ryssan 29-Aug-21 07:26 PM

Should start with prime numbers.


William Chocox 29-Aug-21 07:26 PM

"Of course." William inputs the necessary computer things and sets it to start.


Captain Swain 29-Aug-21 07:28 PM

Smirks Its possible. Though if we have the frequency... seems to have a moment of clarity try modulating the k-band of our sensors to that frequency.

(( Will give me a number 1-20 ))


William Chocox 29-Aug-21 07:28 PM

(( 16 ))


Captain Swain 29-Aug-21 07:29 PM

ACTION: The settings Will tries seem to work.


William Chocox 29-Aug-21 07:30 PM

claps his hands "Hot damn!"


CdrMirandaHawthorne 29-Aug-21 07:30 PM

Ens Reynolds> ::Jumps at the outburst, then blinks.:: It did? I mean... uh... yea, I knew it would.


Irene Mincine 29-Aug-21 07:30 PM

Irene> She closes her eyes for a moment and calms herself down. "Can't hurt to try." She slides over to the left science console and adjusts the K-band frequency to match the shielding. "Should have results in a second here if it worked, Captain."


Captain Swain 29-Aug-21 07:30 PM

<< Irene give me a number 1-20 >>


William Chocox 29-Aug-21 07:31 PM

"Good job Reynolds!" +Bridge+ "Engineering to Bridge."


Irene Mincine 29-Aug-21 07:32 PM

(( 16! ))


Captain Swain 29-Aug-21 07:33 PM

ACTION> The sensor modifications seem to also work which show a facility near the planets core.


Clark> +Engineering+ Bridge here


William Chocox 29-Aug-21 07:33 PM

+Clark+ "Let science know that we seem to have a resonator worked out for communications."


Captain Swain 29-Aug-21 07:35 PM

Clark> {asses that message along to science and to the command staff


CdrMirandaHawthorne 29-Aug-21 07:35 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Hearing Will, he tapped his comm.:: +Medical+ Stanton to Medical.


Irene Mincine 29-Aug-21 07:35 PM

Irene> She seems a bit shocked that the sensor changes actually worked. "Hey, it's reading something. Looks like there's a metallic structure down there in a carved-out area near the core? How the hell did they build that down there?"

"And we've got the resonator going, too? Maybe we can ask the bugs after all..."


Captain Swain 29-Aug-21 07:36 PM

Looks back to the sensor scans I wonder if we can beam through to that?


Maryse Dubois 29-Aug-21 07:36 PM

+Stanton+ Go ahead Commander.


Indaura Ryssan 29-Aug-21 07:37 PM

:: Looking at the others, then back to her display ::


Irene Mincine 29-Aug-21 07:38 PM

Irene> "I... hm. Good question. I wouldn't want to be the first one to go."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 29-Aug-21 07:38 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> +Dubois+ Engineering has a workable device to emit tetryons. If you could please send your data to Science, Captain has asked them to meld the two.


Maryse Dubois 29-Aug-21 07:40 PM

+Stanton+ The Universal Translator has already been updated. I will send the data now. ::Sends data packet.::


CdrMirandaHawthorne 29-Aug-21 07:41 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> Mincine, you should be getting the information from medical as we speak. Please inform me when you've got the device ready to transmit.


Irene Mincine 29-Aug-21 07:44 PM

Irene> Slides over to the rightmost science terminal and begins programming the language transmission into the computer. "On it, Commander. Just a sec..." At last, something going right! Now she looks excited instead of frustrated.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 29-Aug-21 07:46 PM

Ens Reynolds> ::Sags in his chair.:: Okay, with that out of the way now... I guess I can start working on the diagnostics. We're getting some system errors from when we had to force shutdown the engines.


William Chocox 29-Aug-21 07:46 PM

"Oof, what's going wrong?"


Indaura Ryssan 29-Aug-21 07:49 PM

Their language must use a complicated grammatical structure.


Captain Swain 29-Aug-21 07:49 PM

Moves back to his chair


CdrMirandaHawthorne 29-Aug-21 07:49 PM

Ens Reynolds> Two dozen different things on a dozen different decks. ::Pulls up the logs.:: What do you want me to start on first?


Irene Mincine 29-Aug-21 07:52 PM

After a few minutes, Irene looks over her shoulder toward the center of hte bridge. "Transmitter is tied into the universal translator, sir."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 29-Aug-21 07:53 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> Alright, let's give it a shot. ::Glances to Swain.:: Would you like to do the honors, sir?


William Chocox 29-Aug-21 07:53 PM

"Start at the top and work your way down, I'll start from the bottom and work my way up."


Captain Swain 29-Aug-21 07:55 PM

Smirks Open a channel.


Clark> Channel open sir.


This is Captain Asher Swain of the Federation starship Excalibur to Opterans. We are explorers seeking to learn more about you and if possible assist as needed.


Irene Mincine 29-Aug-21 07:59 PM

Irene> "Transmission confirmed sent... assuming we made sense, we should be getting a response shortly."


Captain Swain 29-Aug-21 07:59 PM

(( everyone give me a number 1-20 ))


Maryse Dubois 29-Aug-21 08:00 PM



Indaura Ryssan 29-Aug-21 08:00 PM



Irene Mincine 29-Aug-21 08:00 PM

(( 10 ))


William Chocox 29-Aug-21 08:00 PM

(( 9 ))


Captain Swain 29-Aug-21 08:00 PM

(( 13 < for me ))


ACTION> One of the Bugs begins moving towards us
