USS Excalibur Sim Log - 11.07.21

MISSION BRIEF: The Excalibur has left the Opteran system and is resuming its mapping of the sector. We're headed towards a cluster of stars that was mapped some years previously but has not been investigated since.

:: Cleaning medical ::


Irene Mincine 07-Nov-21 08:13 PM

Irene's down in the science lab making sure that freshly-repaired equipment is working properly once again. "Grab that frequency counter, Merida. Make sure this scanner's exactly on spec or they'll start seeing black holes where they should be seeing quasars.'"


William Chocox 07-Nov-21 08:13 PM

William was standing in Engineering, monitoring all the systems after the repairs.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 07-Nov-21 08:14 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> Do you know that I've had to file more special paperwork and forms since I've been on the Excalibur than in the entirety of my career? ::Grousing as he put his thumb to yet another report on his padd.::


Captain Swain 07-Nov-21 08:15 PM

On the bridge, drinking tea, looking over the preliminary data from the last survey, which completed by the USS Montana

I know,right? You should have been here when we were in the Gamma Quadrant.


Indaura Ryssan 07-Nov-21 08:16 PM

:: Using a cleaning scanner over the instruments ::


CdrMirandaHawthorne 07-Nov-21 08:16 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> I shudder to think. I'm beginning to understand why Miranda chose to build ships over being on one.


Captain Swain 07-Nov-21 08:17 PM

Looks over Don't get any ideas.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 07-Nov-21 08:18 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::He chuckled.:: Don't worry. I enjoy the adventure. Just not the paperwork.


Irene Mincine 07-Nov-21 08:19 PM

Val, meanwhile, is at the helm as she always is, looking quite bored as the ship putters along.


Captain Swain 07-Nov-21 08:19 PM

Clark> Val This seems like a peaceful little sector of the universe. Only two M-class planets, none with life higher in intelligence than a house cat. No spatial anomalies or weird planets.


Rex> Enters engineering, looking mischievous


Irene Mincine 07-Nov-21 08:20 PM

Val> "Yeah, the boring part of the quadrant. At least we got to pull one over on those guys before they could harvest all the Opterans."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 07-Nov-21 08:21 PM

Ens Reynolds> ::Seeing Rex, clears his throat to alert Will.::


William Chocox 07-Nov-21 08:21 PM

William looks up. “Hello Commander Rex. What brings you down to my domain?”


CdrMirandaHawthorne 07-Nov-21 08:24 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Grunts at Val's comment.:: Yes, and the reports I'm going to have to file are astronomical as a result.


Captain Swain 07-Nov-21 08:24 PM

Rex> Grins I thought I'd swing by, see how things were going.


Clark> See that’s why you never let them give you more pips.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 07-Nov-21 08:24 PM

Ens Reynolds> ::Immediately suspicious.::


William Chocox 07-Nov-21 08:24 PM

“Things are going well. The ship seems to be running well.”


Irene Mincine 07-Nov-21 08:25 PM

Val nods in agreement with Clark. "Comes with the job, Commander."


Ensign Irene, meanwhile, is doing very little paperwork as she cleans up the wreckage of the science labs.


Captain Swain 07-Nov-21 08:26 PM

_Smirking over his tea_The Montana survey was nearly thirty years and it was an old ship, so maybe we will find something they missed. We have way better sensors.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 07-Nov-21 08:27 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> I let the executive bathroom and exercise facilities cloud my judgement. ::Sighs.::


Irene Mincine 07-Nov-21 08:30 PM

Val> Smirks. "As commanding officer of the shuttle Titania at Starbase 34, my executive bathroom was 3 meters square and had a 'no smoking while in spacedock' sign from sometime in the 23rd century."


Captain Swain 07-Nov-21 08:30 PM

Rex> The sonic showers in the barracks are malfunctioning.


Indaura Ryssan 07-Nov-21 08:30 PM

:: Was happy the medical ward was quiet. Meant no patients ::


William Chocox 07-Nov-21 08:31 PM

“Damnit, that’s not great. How long have they not been working?”


Captain Swain 07-Nov-21 08:31 PM

Rex> Apparently last night after our training exercises.


William Chocox 07-Nov-21 08:32 PM

Looks at Reynolds “Did we receive a report on that?”


Captain Swain 07-Nov-21 08:32 PM

Rex> Nods


William Chocox 07-Nov-21 08:33 PM

“Hmph, why hasn’t that been fixed yet?” William starts looking for the ticket.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 07-Nov-21 08:34 PM

Ens Reynolds> I didn't see it! Not my fault...

Ens Reynolds> It's probably a low priority item.


William Chocox 07-Nov-21 08:34 PM

“Not assigning blame Reynolds.”


CdrMirandaHawthorne 07-Nov-21 08:35 PM

Ens Reynolds> I didn't think that security showered that often, anyhow...


William Chocox 07-Nov-21 08:35 PM

“But I’ll take care of it my-let’s not insult other departments while their heads are in earshot Ensign.”


Captain Swain 07-Nov-21 08:35 PM

Looking over the PADD The second M-class has some interesting fauna, and a pretty wide variety of biomes. I am particularly interested in the mountain region on the upper continent. I say we survey it first, what do you think Jalen?


Irene Mincine 07-Nov-21 08:36 PM

Irene gets a report from one of the other scientists and looks quite unhappy as she taps her combadge. "Ensign Mincine to Engineering. Where are the survey module relays I put in a request for 16 hours ago? We might as well be trying to look at stars with a children's microscope right now."


William Chocox 07-Nov-21 08:37 PM

+Mincine+ “I was unaware that you had reported an issue, I’ll send an engineer right away.”


Captain Swain 07-Nov-21 08:39 PM

Rex> Smirks Thanks, and you're right. We don't, Ensign, but my boyfriend wanted me to smell good for a holodeck date.

Rex> Turns to head out, wry grin on his face


Irene Mincine 07-Nov-21 08:40 PM

+Will+ She offers a terse "Thank you." and hangs up. "That's what they said 4 hours ago..."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 07-Nov-21 08:40 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::He nodded.:: I'm sure it would be interesting. So long as it isn't freezing...


William Chocox 07-Nov-21 08:40 PM

“Showers or science Reynolds?”


CdrMirandaHawthorne 07-Nov-21 08:41 PM

Ens Reynolds> I'll take showers, I guess. ::A bit embarrassed at letting his mouth run away from him.::


William Chocox 07-Nov-21 08:42 PM

“If you don’t want to do the showers I was going to take them before Ms. Mincine called down.”


CdrMirandaHawthorne 07-Nov-21 08:43 PM

Ens Reynolds> No... showers are fine. I... uh... don't want Mincine mad at me.


Captain Swain 07-Nov-21 08:43 PM

Helm, adjust course to put us into orbit of the second M-class planet.


William Chocox 07-Nov-21 08:43 PM

“Alright.” +Mincine+ “Survey module relays coming right up!”


Irene Mincine 07-Nov-21 08:45 PM

+Will+ "Great, deliver them to lab 3, please."


Captain Swain 07-Nov-21 08:46 PM

Jalen Have medical, science and security prep for a full survey of the planet. We'll have a briefing this evening. Considers Dinner in the Captain's mess?


William Chocox 07-Nov-21 08:46 PM

+Mincine+ “I’m headed that way now.” starts gathering the modules into an anti-grav sled


Irene Mincine 07-Nov-21 08:46 PM

Val> Punches the course in on her console. "Aye, moving into standard orbit. ETA 6 minutes."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 07-Nov-21 08:47 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Nods.: That sounds nice.


Ens Reynolds> ::Packs up his kit and heads for the lift.::


Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Sends a message to science, medical, and security department heads to prep for the planetary survey and select crew for an away mission.::


Captain Swain 07-Nov-21 08:50 PM

Nods Good. I'll have the galley get dinner together... I am thinking Betazoid?


Irene Mincine 07-Nov-21 08:51 PM

Irene looks at the padd she's holding. "Another planetary survey?" She opens a channel to the bridge. "Mincine to Commander Stanton, we don't have the planetary survey sensors working again yet."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 07-Nov-21 08:53 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> +Mincine+ That's fine, Mincine. We'll start with the teams on the planet while engineering fixes the sensor modules.


Captain Swain 07-Nov-21 08:53 PM

Clark> Looks over to Val Betazoid food?


William Chocox 07-Nov-21 08:53 PM

William drags his sled into Lab 3. “Heard y’all needed some relays.”


CdrMirandaHawthorne 07-Nov-21 08:54 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Glances back to Swain.:: Could be tasty. Traditional wedding feast attire, too? ::Smirks::


Irene Mincine 07-Nov-21 08:54 PM

Val> "Hope you like salads." As she monitors their orbital insertion.


Captain Swain 07-Nov-21 08:54 PM

Snorts No, lets uh go with clothes this time.


Indaura Ryssan 07-Nov-21 08:55 PM

:: Sees a message :: Oh, a mission.


Captain Swain 07-Nov-21 08:55 PM

Clark> I hear the oysters are good. Besides, aren't you senior staff?


Irene Mincine 07-Nov-21 08:55 PM

Irene> She looks like she ran out of patience long ago. "Finally! We just got orders to get a planetary survey team together and those relays control the survey sensor focus."


Val> "Last I checked."


William Chocox 07-Nov-21 08:56 PM

“My apologies, I’ll get them installed posthaste.” William gets to work on the various relays.


Irene Mincine 07-Nov-21 08:58 PM

Irene> Another exasperated "Thank you." and she disappears into the next room to gather a survey team.


William Chocox 07-Nov-21 08:59 PM

(M) “Who pissed in her Wheaties?” Keeps installing relays


CdrMirandaHawthorne 07-Nov-21 09:00 PM

Ens Reynolds> ::Arrives at the security barracks and opens the access panel to check the sonic modulators.::


Captain Swain 07-Nov-21 09:01 PM

ACTION> There's at least three hulking, naked security officers horsing around in the locker room and begin cat calling Reynolds.


Indaura Ryssan 07-Nov-21 09:02 PM

:: Getting her gear together ::


CdrMirandaHawthorne 07-Nov-21 09:04 PM

Ens Reynolds> ::Flushed and bumbling, trying to ignore the attention. Scans the module nodes one by one.::


Captain Swain 07-Nov-21 09:04 PM

Security Officer1> Whips a towel at Reynolds
