USS Excalibur Sim Log - 12.05.21

MISSION BRIEF: Excalibur has entered orbit of an M-class planet in the Itarian system. It was briefly surveyed by the USS Montana roughly 30+ years ago. From those records we know that there are no higher-order lifeforms, but there are a large variety of flora and fauna dispersed through a number of different biomes. Captain Swain and Ensign Mincine have led two science teams down to a boreal forest. Swain's team is looking for fungus or other plants, while Irene's team is hoping to catalogue some of the early stage primates.

:: Is...somewhere ::


William Chocox 05-Dec-21 08:11 PM

William steps out of the turbolift into Security. He looks around to see who's in the area.


Irene Mincine 05-Dec-21 08:13 PM

@ "Over here." Irene and her team are taking photos of various primates with a holo-camera. They look like large orangutans huddled near a tree.  


Maryse Dubois 05-Dec-21 08:13 PM

$ ::Making sure the supplies are in order at their camp.::  


Captain Swain 05-Dec-21 08:13 PM

$ Trying to keep his enthusiasm for being on an away team in check This is certainly a diversified biome_

$ Especially for a boreal forest.

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Holding down the bridge and enjoying the peace and quiet.::


Erich Jaenke 05-Dec-21 08:15 PM

$ :: Nearly on the ground looking for fungus ::


William Chocox 05-Dec-21 08:16 PM

William makes his way towards the security replicators, trying to act casual.


Captain Swain 05-Dec-21 08:16 PM

Clark> to Stanton The Captain certainly seemed eager to stretch his legs.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 05-Dec-21 08:17 PM

Security Ensign> ::Spots Will in the area.:: Need something, Chief?


Irene Mincine 05-Dec-21 08:17 PM

$ "Mm. Atmospheric conditions are supportive of a wide range of life here." She's focused on her holo-camera.


William Chocox 05-Dec-21 08:17 PM

"Routine maintenance on the replicators. Gotta make sure everything's working properly."


Captain Swain 05-Dec-21 08:18 PM

$ Glances over to the Vulcan science officer Be sure to get water samples from both up and downstream of that log jam points


CdrMirandaHawthorne 05-Dec-21 08:19 PM

Cdr Jalen Stanton> ::Glances up from his PADD.:: Hmm? Ah, I can't really blame him. He normally misses out on all the fun.

Security Ensign> Oh, okay. Let me know if you need anything. ::Not at all suspicious.::


Captain Swain 05-Dec-21 08:21 PM

(( See if I were the malevolent person y'all accuse me of being, some big space creature would attack us or a Romulan ship would decloak ))


William Chocox 05-Dec-21 08:23 PM

"Will do, thanks for the offer." William starts fiddling with the replicators. Nothing serious, just hot drinks being a few degrees off, food being just a little bit off in texture.


Irene Mincine 05-Dec-21 08:23 PM

$ "They look just like orange gibbons." Irene's snapping away while the other ensigns on her team are taking observations. "It's great to go on a hike through here instead of crawling through caves or freezing my butt off."


Captain Swain 05-Dec-21 08:26 PM

$ Unusual for primates to develop in this climate though, I wonder if the hot springs are part of the reason why.


William Chocox 05-Dec-21 08:29 PM

William buttons up the replicators. "Have a good day Ensign." He walks out of security and back towards the turbolift to Engineering.


CdrMirandaHawthorne 05-Dec-21 08:31 PM

Security Ensign> ::Waves to Will as he leaves and makes a note of his visit in the official report.::  


Irene Mincine 05-Dec-21 08:32 PM

$ "They're a source of energy for complex chemistry." She considers it for a second. "We should collect samples from that, too, for chemical analysis."


Captain Swain 05-Dec-21 08:34 PM

$ I already assigned some of your team to that. The fungal collection is also started.


Erich Jaenke 05-Dec-21 08:36 PM

$ :: Indaura continued to collect her samples on her own, enjoying the calm. ::


Irene Mincine 05-Dec-21 08:36 PM

@ "It's my..." She catches herself before she mouths off at the captain too much and just says, "Good."  


William Chocox 05-Dec-21 08:38 PM

William steps out of the turbolift back into Engineering. "How are we looking Reynolds?"


Maryse Dubois 05-Dec-21 08:38 PM

$ ::Is also enjoying her quiet time as she sets up the research tent.::


Captain Swain 05-Dec-21 08:42 PM

$ Glances over, smirks I am sorry, I know having me here can't be easy. My science officer on the Cassini hated when I... how did she put it "tagged along like the principle coming on a field trip."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 05-Dec-21 08:43 PM

Ens Reynolds> ::Jumps a little as Chocox reappears.:: Oh? Ah... I'm good, Chief. Need me for anything?


William Chocox 05-Dec-21 08:44 PM

"No, was just wondering if the ship was about to fall apart around us."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 05-Dec-21 08:46 PM

Ens Reynolds> No, not at the moment. There's always time, though.


Irene Mincine 05-Dec-21 08:46 PM

@ Irene sighs, knowingly. "I know your job isn't to be the principal. It still feels weird having you over my shoulder on a simple survey mission, though."


Captain Swain 05-Dec-21 08:47 PM

$ I am only here because I enjoy the science, Ensign, not to look over your shoulder.


Irene Mincine 05-Dec-21 08:48 PM

@ "That used to be Commander Hawthorne's job, I think." She goes back to snapping holo-photos, a little less nervous now.


Captain Swain 05-Dec-21 08:49 PM

$ If I didn't trust you with science, I have plenty of options. _Gives her a quick wink before heading off to check out something someone was waving him over for __


William Chocox 05-Dec-21 08:50 PM

"Well, let's keep it that way. By the way, if security sends tickets about their replicators, put them in the low priority queue."


Irene Mincine 05-Dec-21 08:53 PM

@ "...I... that's... good, I think..." She tries not to think about it as the captain wanders off. "Hm. Well, at least you trust me, right?" She says to the orange gibbon, which is picking its nose.


Erich Jaenke 05-Dec-21 08:56 PM

$ :: She was up to her waist in fungi, figuratively speaking ::


CdrMirandaHawthorne 05-Dec-21 08:57 PM

Ens Reynolds> Done and done. ::Smirks.:: Though, is there a reason why they'd call about the replicators?


William Chocox 05-Dec-21 08:58 PM

"Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no lies Reynolds."


CdrMirandaHawthorne 05-Dec-21 09:00 PM

Ens Reynolds> ::Snickers.:: Whatever you say, Chief.


Captain Swain 05-Dec-21 09:01 PM

<< ... Two Minute Warning ... >>


William Chocox 05-Dec-21 09:01 PM

"Good lad."


Captain Swain 05-Dec-21 09:04 PM
