  1. USS REPUBLIC MISSION BRIEFING 51710.16 - Season 25 Melos 3 is a small planet located in the Melos star system. Located midway between Darbet and Gaithe, Melos 3 had been left un-colonized for some time as both sides wished to claim, but neither wanted to start a war while applying for Federation membership. Now, with both having become Federation members, a joint colony had been established about 20 years previously, but now reports of strange occurrences, broken machinery and sabotage have surfaced. We are to investigate and put a stop to what we find. (this was from the meeting we were having at the end of the last sim we ran) BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM STSF_BluRox: So, we need to look, see who oversees what, what they export and what they import, and from whom the reports have been sent from. From what I understand, there are several towns spread out along the main continent, so it will be more complicated.:: Looks around at the others to see if she still has their attention of if she had bored them to sleep:: August Jax Robinson: how many people are supposed to he on this planet? STSF Seiben: ::looks around as well:: Heather Jamieson: :: Listening and watching :: STSF_BluRox: Well, the briefing stated that they had started with a small joint colony of about 300 at one point, but in the last 20 years, they've spread out and started several new towns/settlements, and we're guessing with others that have joined from each world, that we're looking at about 500 people STSF Seiben: ::listens:: August Jax Robinson: hmm STSF Seiben: ::nods and makes some mental notes:: Rue Wydown: ::trying to mentally calculate just how many terra forming domes they'd need to maintain that population.:: STSF_BluRox: However, some of the recent 'accidents' have taken a few lives. The security teams have reported they were all 'suspicious and they felt deliberate or some sort of sabotage to prime systems, or at some of the terraforming locations. August Jax Robinson: have we been sent copies of these accident reports? Rue Wydown: This should be interesting. Rumors and finger pointing are involved, I bet? STSF_BluRox: In short, this world has a lot of resources. Both planets were interested and used to fight over who would control this....until they realized it would jeopardize their Federation applications. So, with the help of an arbitor, they peacefully agreed to joint custody of the planet, with rules on how much could be harvested or cleared. Heather Jamieson: What a logistical nightmare. STSF_BluRox: Yes, we'll have to pull them up. Of concern was a failure at a power plant, which caused an explosion and killed several workers. Then food supplies were destroyed...by a roof failure of the location much of the grain waiting to be processed was stored, ruining it all STSF Seiben: I see. I`ll make the necessary arrangements to house them all. STSF_BluRox: The Admiral said that both worlds have filed a grievance against the other, accusing each of trying to kill or frighten the others off, so that they could claim it for their own. So, that's what we're here to determine Heather Jamieson: Is there a third party that would benefit from these two groups fighting? STSF_BluRox: There have been a few others as well, but those were the two that stood out. STSF_BluRox: Again, that is something we are here to investigate August Jax Robinson: ::Sighs:: STSF_BluRox: If Starfleet already knew, we'd not be having to spend the rest of our leave break, being assigned to figure this out STSF Seiben: ::rubs chin:: Coming in completely in the dark, eh? OK Rue Wydown: So, where do we start, folks? Who wants to tackle what? STSF Seiben: (my keyboard was set to French) STSF_BluRox: :: turns looking at Seiben:: Wait...what do you mean you will make arrangements to 'house them all'? STSF Seiben: Sorry, I misheard. I thought we were bringing the colonists up. August Jax Robinson: maybe we can lock them up until someone fesses up STSF_BluRox: We are not bringing 500 colonist up, besides, then if any one was left, they'd claim the place as abandoned for their own world STSF Seiben: ::nods:: STSF_BluRox: I don't believe the brig is big enough to lock up everyone from this world STSF_BluRox: Rue, get me some firm plans from this group please, I need to step out for a moment. Heather Jamieson: Are the people that rough down there? STSF Seiben: I would imagine so, no food or power and everyone's fighting each other... Rue Wydown: Aye, ma'am. ::nods, although the idea of locking up all the colonists in the Republic's brig makes it hard for her to keep from laughing outright:: Heather Jamieson: :: Thinks of her phaser :: Rue Wydown: ::claps her hands together;: Okay folks. Where do you want to start? Who wants to take on what tasks? Heather Jamieson: :: Looks to Jax :: August Jax Robinson: I can get their systems up and running, look over the other stuff and make sure nothing has a trap set up Rue Wydown: Brilliant. ::nods to Jax, then turns to the other two:: And you lot? Heather Jamieson: I can do a sensor log search to see if anyone outside of these two groups are causing these 'accidents' STSF Seiben: I could arrange the delivery of supplies to the colony, food and generators and anything else they need Heather Jamieson: Afraid to say it, but could someone in the Federation itself be manipulating events? Rue Wydown: You know who to talk to get that list? ::making a note on her table on who's going to do what:: Rue Wydown: Ms Jamieson, how would you find that out? August Jax Robinson: ::Makes a few notes on where to start down thereee:: Rue Wydown: And Jax, would you be willing to also take a look at the accident reports from an engineer's point of view? Heather Jamieson: I'd have to do some poking around. The log search is easy, the other is not Heather Jamieson: Not saying it is, but something to consider. STSF Seiben: Hm Rue Wydown: And from a scientific point of view, what sort of poking around are you planning? August Jax Robinson: I can give them a look, but I can only guess with stuff that is Non-Engineering Heather Jamieson: I'll have to ask questions as I do other investigations of scientific interest Heather Jamieson: A bit of social engineering STSF_BluRox: :: in her ready room, rubbing at her forehead, the headaches she is frequented with bothering her again tonight, most likely from not sleeping much during the trial:: STSF Seiben: Social engineering, eh? Heather Jamieson: I'm not dressing in green if that's what you are thinking. STSF Seiben: okay Heather Jamieson: Are we to have armed escorts? Rue Wydown: Armed escorts would be overkill, don't you think? You'd be escalating an already tense situation. Heather Jamieson: Well from the sounds of it we should not be going anywhere alone. STSF Seiben: We'd have security, wouldn't we? Rue Wydown: Seiben, while you're preparing a list of relief needs, why don't you see what you can find out from the adminstrators about the inport/export information. STSF Seiben: Yes, sure. Rue Wydown: We'll have security, but we're not sending in the Marines ::dark look to both Jamieson and Seiben for going way out of bounds:: STSF_BluRox: (clarification to above statement -- it was a food storage location, there are several on the planet, so not totally without food, just tight. Power outages also only affect some of the main areas) STSF_BluRox: :: goes to the replicator and asks for some hot water to perhaps make some tea to help with the headache:: @ Holly> :: materializes a cup of tea and a plate of toast:: Rue Wydown: Jamieson, I want you to also look at the autopsy reports with our CMO and see if these incidents are accidents or deliberate. STSF_BluRox: @ I can get something on my own you know @Holly> Yes, but you are stubborn. And I know you'll feel better once you have some tea to calm that headache down Heather Jamieson: :: nods :: STSF_BluRox: @ Don't be a busybody Holly Rue Wydown: Does everyone have a clear idea of what they're doing? STSF Seiben: Yes sir August Jax Robinson: ::Looks at Seiben:: we might want to see if the same group or race is focused on STSF Seiben: ::nods:: That makes sense Rue Wydown: Oh, good point Jax. ::scribbles in her tablet:: @ Holly> If you'd rather, I can help the crew beam everyone up and let them sleep in your ready room and quarters if you like? STSF_BluRox: @ Someone wants her partition quarantined again? @ Holly> Will's not here, he's the only other one with clearance to do it. So ha. Besides, I just sent a note to get you some help... STSF_BluRox: @ What did you do? Heather Jamieson: This could be family disagreements Rue Wydown: Okay, anything else? Is everyone clear on their tasks/ STSF Seiben: Nothing from me, and yes. ACTION:: Note appears on Rue's padd. Admiral has one of her recurring headaches, and would desperately appreciate if you could help her out with one of your tea blends to help soothe the pain for her. - Sincerely, Holly August Jax Robinson: Candy and coffee then work? Rue Wydown: Whatever it takes to get you psyched up for work. ::grins, slaps the table with enthusiasm:: Alright, let's get to work then. I’ll go and update the Admiral. Heather Jamieson: :: Makes notes in her PADD :: STSF_BluRox: @ Holly, you are not helping my headache. I just want some dark chocolate and darken the room for a few moments to rest. STSF Seiben: ::makes some notes in his PADD as well:: August Jax Robinson: ::sighs:: crap STSF_BluRox: @ :: after a moment of looking at Holly grin, she deducts what she has done:: Oh no you didn't!!? What did I do wrong to you today? I should enhance your taste receptors, so you can appreciate that nasty stuff as well. Heather Jamieson: What? :: to Jax :: Rue Wydown: ::amused by the note on the padd, knowing very well that Blu wouldn't appreciate one of her tea blends, but it might bring her in better humor to be teased by it:: @ Holly> :: tracking Rue:: Well, I have stuff I need to work on, enjoy your toast, I need to get back to work Rue Wydown: :nods to the others and heads out of the conference room to check on the Admiral in her Ready Room:: August Jax Robinson: nothing... just mumbles of love Rue Wydown: ::rings the chime to the Ready Room:: @ Holly> Have a nice rest Admiral, I have to go... :: fades out:: Heather Jamieson: :: Scrunches her brow, then nods :: STSF_BluRox: :: sighs:: Enter August Jax Robinson: ::grabs her coffee and PADD:: Rue Wydown: ::the picture of innocence as if it wasn't Holly who requested her presence:: Admiral? STSF Seiben: ::heads back to the bridge and to his console:: STSF_BluRox: Yes Rue? Come in....excuse the lighting, I have it turned down a little bit at the moment Rue Wydown: Aye. You know, if you're feeling poorly, I've got just the pick me up that might work? STSF Seiben: ::does a quick inventory of what they have:: August Jax Robinson: a brick? ::Looks at Rue:: STSF_BluRox: :: mumbles:: Bloody hologram::: Heather Jamieson: :: Entering what she will need database wise :: Rue Wydown: Whot's that? STSF_BluRox: (Rue's in my ready room ) STSF_BluRox: Nothing...nothing....just making a note about Holly. August Jax Robinson: Heather Jamieson: :: Looks around to see if Holly is about :: August Jax Robinson: ::Heads to Engineering:: STSF_BluRox: Well, you've found me out....can't imagine how... :: ears flatten a bit at Holly, knowing she's watching:: As bad at it taste, I'm game to have a go at one of your blends, I feel my head is splitting open at the moment... STSF Seiben: ::checking their stocks:: Okay, that should be plenty. STSF_BluRox: Perhaps it was the thought of us beaming up 500 colonists..... Rue Wydown: ::laughs, moving to the replicator:: STSF_BluRox: Do you mind riding herd on this while I take a brief respite and try to feel a bit better? If you could meet with the colonist leaders to at least let them know our people will be poking around....before they start poking around, that would be greatly appreciated. August Jax Robinson: ::Enters the lift:: Engineering Heather Jamieson: :: Moves to Seiben :: I may need some local database for my PADD, if you can help Rue Wydown: No problem. ::putting a particularly pungent blend of tea on Blu's desk:: STSF_BluRox: :: catches a wiff and swears the woman purposely finds the worst tasting combos to test out on her..... for sadistic fun:: STSF_BluRox: That smells worse than the last....I didn't think that was possible. STSF Seiben: Ok sure. STSF Seiben: ::works with Heather:: Rue Wydown: It'll work. Trust me STSF_BluRox: :: picks it up, knowing it's only going to be worse if she lets it get cold (from her last experience with Rue's teas)......:: starts drinking it::: STSF_BluRox: :: making a look like a cat accidentally sucked on something like a lemon crossed with ghost peppers....and perhaps a dead fish::: STSF_BluRox: Oh blazes....if it doesn't kill me first...... STSF_BluRox: :: takes another swallow, noting already, that it seems to be making her drowsy:: Heather Jamieson: :: to Seiben :: I may need a more capable padd. Rue Wydown: I could go into the Science of it all, but that face you made it just says it all. Rue Wydown: ((and maybe Holly messed with the recipe)) STSF Seiben: You could get one from by spacial net easily STSF Seiben: from the* STSF_BluRox: Well, nothing for it... ::: downs the rest and moves over to the small couch to sit down:: STSF_BluRox: Thank you Rue, hopefully this will help. I appreciate your efforts And thanks for following up on this, I'll join you once I'm feeling a bit better.

  3. USS REPUBLIC MISSION BRIEFING 51710.02 - SEASON 25 Our new orders had come in and we've been sent to check out Melos 3. Melos 3 is a small planet located in the Melos star system. Located midway between Darbet and Gaithe, Melos 3 had been left un-colonized for some time as both sides wished to claim, but neither wanted to start a war while applying for Federation membership. Now, with both having become Federation members, a joint colony had been established about 20 years previously, but now reports of strange occurrences, broken machinery and sabotage have surfaced. We are to investigate and put a stop to what we find and try to prevent these two parties from attacking each other. BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM ACTION: The Republic is about 10 minutes outside of the Melos Star system STSF_BluRox: :: sitting in the center seat, reading information Calvert had sent to her on a padd:: STSF Seiben: ::driving the ship:: Rue Wydown: So what sort of sabotage are we talking about? Jas: ::Finishes patching up a fellow crewmate's sprained ankle with a shake of his head:: ...and be more careful next time! STSF_BluRox: The reports are sort of vague, I have in the notes that had been received, mentions of the power grids being tampered with, I’m guessing we'll have to investigate the rest. Jas: ::Wonders aloud to himself as the ensign leaves:: I think I've seen more injuries on this ship while in-transit than anywhere else. STSF_BluRox: Seems that even they.... have been 'left in the dark' so to say Rue Wydown: I'm just curious about the shenanigans. Whether they're minor annoyances or something life threatening. August Jax Robinson: ::in her office, pulls up the level of technology both races level at... and their history to skim through later:: Jas: ::Mills about the sickbay, making sure everything is right where it should be:: Heather Jamieson: :: Sitting at the science console, looking into her cartography display :: STSF_BluRox: Seems they are midway terraforming parts of the planet. it seems that there are occasionally bad dust storms, so they maintain many of the housing areas within a dome, that they can go to during the dusty season. Rue Wydown: Oh yeah? Kind of like living in a greenhouse? STSF_BluRox: Some have been able to maintain their homes outside of the domes for most of the time, but when these storms hit, to have that many people together, and no power, it prevents them from processing the air filtration. Rue Wydown: No back up system? STSF_BluRox: Not sure they want to bake in a greenhouse, I'd think there would be some sort of polarization. It may not even be clear, that's all the information we've received. We'll need to go take a look STSF_BluRox: Again, information is vague, but it appears when they went to activate it, much of the system had been tampered with. That's all I have Rue Wydown: We able to beam down or take shuttles? Heather Jamieson: They know it is tampered versus some engineering issue? Jas: ::Scratches head in confusion:: Where in the heck did that sonic separator go...? ACTION:: 15 minutes have passed, and the Republic has bypassed it's preferred approach to the system, and moving off in a tangent from their destination. STSF_BluRox: (Evidently, the new Helmsman dozed off while approaching, and never slowed the ship!!) lol STSF_BluRox: :: looks over at Heather:: Please assist Mr Seiben with a course correction that will take us back towards Melos..... Heather Jamieson: (This helm officer is no better...) STSF Seiben: We've bypassed our approach -- I'll try to set a course back. STSF Seiben: (Yeah, blame my bladder) Heather Jamieson: :: Goes to help :: There are gravimetric interests here.. I'll just enter this change.. STSF Seiben: Ok, thanks. Sorry about that. Jas: ::Rummages about through various devices:: Heather Jamieson: I have been in the holodeck a lot... in my spare time. Mostly shuttles, but I have browsed a ship or two. STSF_BluRox: :: turns back to Rue:: Have you been able to work with Jax since she's been returned to duty? STSF Seiben: Awesome. Rue Wydown: She's down in Engineering. You and I were supposed to have a conversation about what the Admirals recommendations were. But with the shake out of the new crew members, we haven't had a chance. STSF Seiben: ::moving the ship back to its course with Heather's help:: Heather Jamieson: :: to Seiben :: Interesting about this system is we really don't know the best entry vector until we try an approach. Heather Jamieson: We are still gathering information. STSF Seiben: I see, that's good to know STSF Seiben: Explains why I missed it STSF_BluRox: +Jax, Jas+ Please report to the bridge in a few minutes I've got some information we need to discuss with you both. STSF_BluRox: ::turns to Rue:: My ready room for a moment then please August Jax Robinson: +Blu+ on my way Jas: ::Guffaws:: Next to the protoplaser?! Why would anyone -- August Jax Robinson: ::grabs her PADD and heads to the lift, slips in when the doors open::: Jas: ::Pinches the bridge of his nose and taps his combadge:: +Blu+ I'll be right there. STSF_BluRox: When they get up here Heather, have them take a seat in the conference room. Once Seiben has us in orbit, we'll all have a brief discussion there STSF_BluRox: :: turns and walks into her ready room Jas: ::Puts the sonic separator back in its rightful place and, after grabbing his PADD, heads out into the corridor and towards the turbolift:: Rue Wydown: Alrighty then. ::following Blu:: Heather Jamieson: :: moves a chair to sit next to Seiben :: Let me enable more coordination between astrometrics and navigation. Jas: ::Enters the turbolift:: +TB+ Bridge, please. STSF Seiben: We should be in orbit soon. ::heather:: That'd be most helpful. To be honest, I don't have much experience with these bigger ships. STSF_BluRox: ((What!!!?? )) STSF Seiben: (lel) STSF_BluRox: :: walks around behind her desk and takes a seat, starts to pull up information on her terminal as Rue enters and the door closes:: Rue Wydown: ((oh boy)) Jas: ::Exits onto the bridge with a *swish* of the door, grinning as he takes in all the equipment and personnel:: Rue Wydown: ::opens her mouth to say something, then closes it, opens it to try again, and then stops, starts looking like a guppy instead of a human:: Heather Jamieson: I will give you some lessons. Just remember they are a lot slower in their turns at impulse and thrusters. August Jax Robinson: ::Steps off the lift, nods to Blu:: Admiral Heather Jamieson: Kasuga taught me a lot... :: looks a little forlorn :: STSF Seiben: Yes, I remember that from the Academy simulations. You have to kind of plan your moves alot. STSF Seiben: Ah, I see. Jas: ::Kind of wanders around until he finds himself standing right in front of the main viewing screen, staring out at the stars in awe:: STSF_BluRox: Ok, I'm assuming that you had at least read the charges that had been filed against her, and why she was down in the brig in the first place? STSF Seiben: OK, we should be in position soon. ::plots the orbital course into the navigational computer:: Rue Wydown: Aye, as well as had a rather lengthy conversation with her while you were working with the previous trial. How did you manage to separate her from that cell? She seemed pretty intent, although not content, to remain there. Heather Jamieson: :: taps him on the shoulder :: You'll do fine... just watch your speed. :: smiles :: STSF Seiben: Yes, definitely gotta do that ::slows down to orbital speed and matches with the planet's spin, sets course to the point of the planet there were to orbit:: STSF Seiben: Course is set, we have a good orbit. Much more challenging on a Soverign class. STSF_BluRox: I think it came down more to the fact that Rand..... Admiral Calvert and I had discussed her situation and he realized she's been under quite a bit of stress, with her husband being out of communication for some time. That, and I think he just wanted her out of the brig and figured her best punishment would be to put her to work on extra shifts here. To let us handle it. STSF Seiben: Biggest ship I orbitted/piloted was an Ambassador class before this.. the Endeavour. Heather Jamieson: :: Goes back to her station :: STSF Seiben: Thanks for your help Heather Jamieson: :: Wonders if Jax is okay, then wonders why she is thinking that :: STSF_BluRox: I think a compromise as we were not able to fully get Ayumu cleared either Rue Wydown: Can I ask a question though? With extra full shifts on her schedule, doesn't that lead to fatigue and stress - the very thing that helped put her in the brig in the first place? STSF_BluRox: If I may be frank, the Admiral was a bit disappointed, as was I, that this was allowed to devolve as it did. And I'll come back to your question in a moment. STSF Seiben: ::maintaining orbit around the planet:: Jas: ::After several moments of star-gazing, he turns around in confusion, his eyes searching for the Admiral:: STSF Seiben: The Admiral is in the Ready Room ::to Jas:: August Jax Robinson: ::frowns at Rue:: STSF_BluRox: Specifically, it's looking more likely that Captain Kwai may not be returning. I know you've been filling in during the interim, but you have been here long enough that you should be able to take on the full first officers duty of dealing with the crew and any issues they have. Heather Jamieson: Scanning the planet Jas: ::Nods to Seiben and scans blankly around the bridge:: The Ready...Room... STSF Seiben: ::sends a message that they are in orbit around the planet so as to minimize disturbing them:: STSF Seiben: It's the door to the left of the turbolift. It should read "READY ROOM" Rue Wydown: All right. STSF_BluRox: It would have been preferred that you defend Ayumu, as that typically would have fell to you to oversee, but also, as I was prosecuting, it would have been easier to hammer out a deal with you, than what I had to shove in the face of the young LT. Jas: ::Clears throat:: Of course, right. Thanks. ::Walks over and enters the Ready Room:: STSF_BluRox: And with Jax, I ended up spending time in the brig trying to talk some sense into her, I need you to take care of these type of things please. Now, getting back to your questions..... :: looks up at her door opens:: STSF_BluRox: Excuse me? Can I help you? Is there a medical emergency? STSF Seiben: Is the door chime to the ready room working? ::to Heather:: STSF_BluRox: :: turns to look at Rue, then back to Jas:: Heather Jamieson: I don't know. I thought it was. Jas: ::Deer caught in headlights:: Jas: ::Clears throat again, and slowly back out -- door wooshes:: STSF Seiben: Hmm. Rue Wydown: New guy. Needs a map. ::shrugs;; you were saying? STSF Seiben: That was quick. Jas: ::Nods to himself and looks around the bridge completely conspicuously:: Nobody saw that... STSF Seiben: Saw what? I didn't see anything. STSF_BluRox: Aye, we need to tighten up on people listening. In the last hour, the new helmsman just missed our trajectory, and I had asked Heather to send them to the conference room, not to my Ready Room. Things are getting sloppy around here. Someone is going to get hurt. August Jax Robinson: can I hurt them? Jas: ::Realizes he spoke aloud, eyes dart to Seiben:: Beg your pardon? Uh, nothing. STSF_BluRox: As for Jax, orders were that she work extra shifts, however they do not have to be thinking intensive and they can coincide with planned recreation periods. I will leave the scheduling up to you. STSF Seiben: OK STSF Seiben: ALl right, that's a good orbit STSF_BluRox: I believe the admiral had suggested cleaning the waste management area, perhaps some new paint STSF_BluRox: But I'll leave you to work this out with her and get her back on point with her work. August Jax Robinson: wait a moment Rue Wydown: Alright. August Jax Robinson: work extra shifts? why is that? STSF_BluRox: Now, before they direct more people in here, let's go meet with the senior staff in the conference room, and let them know what we know of this mission Jas: ::Positions himself silently by the turbolift doors and tries to keep out of the way as the bridge crew go about their work:: STSF_BluRox: ((( When they get up here Heather, have them take a seat in the conference room. Once Seiben has us in orbit, we'll all have a brief discussion there))) PAUSE SIM PAUSE SIM PAUSE SIM STSF Seiben: ::Paused:: August Jax Robinson: ::Paused:: STSF_BluRox: Blu told you that earlier......did you purposely screw the new guy, or forgot? Jas: ::Paused:: STSF_BluRox: Rue will be following up with you I'm sure...lol STSF Seiben: (24th century hazing lol) Jas: It's fine, adds to my new guy-ness. STSF Seiben: Same with Seiben's missed approach STSF_BluRox: Jax didnt' hit anyone with a spnner...that's good Rue Wydown: Yet Jas: Just title this episode "Amateur Hour" STSF_BluRox: Ok, so now that we took some extra time to get here, at least we're in a good orbit and we can head down next week and try to figure out what's going on around here.... STSF_BluRox: I just may Jas!! August Jax Robinson: can I hit someone with a spanner? August Jax Robinson: August Jax Robinson: like my boss STSF_BluRox: Alrighty, it's after midnight and I have to leave for work in about 5 hours, so let's put this sim to bed. Anything before we close Rue? Rue Wydown: Nothing from me tonight STSF_BluRox: ok then. Crew Dismissed. We'll see most of you Thursday, and everyone back next Monday.
  4. USS REPUBLIC MISSION BRIEFING 51709.25 - Season 25 Admiral Calvert has sent orders for the Republic to go investigate some issue that had been reported on Melos 3, involving a fairly new settlement, having only been colonized in the last 20 years. However, repeated reports of systems failures and sabotage, leave the colony at risk if this is not settled. We are to investigate and solve the issue. Meanwhile, orders had been issues to the brig to release Lt Commander Jax to the custody of the USS Republic and to report to Commander Wydown to return to duty. (Calvert said sending her back to us seemed to be punishment enough!! The nerve of some....oh wait... he might have a point!) BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM STSF_BluRox: :: Exits ready room to the bridge:: STSF Seiben: ::in the bridge, settling into things:: STSF_BluRox: :: looks to see who else is on duty:: Rue Wydown: ::having much scared the new med officer half to death, pestered three of the other science officers about an unauthorized experiment and instructed the chief janitorial staff about the clean up needed on deck 5, she's now looking to see whom she could make a pest of next:: STSF_BluRox: ::spies the new helmsman:: STSF_BluRox: :: takes a seat in the center chair:: Helm, you look familiar, do I know you?

August Jax Robinson: +Wydown+ I have, do you need my presents? STSF_BluRox: Well, again, welcome aboard. We'll be preparing to leave the station momentarily. Please plot in a course to Melos 3 and stand by my order to engage. STSF_BluRox: (I want presents!!) STSF Seiben: Yes sir. STSF Seiben: Setting course to Melos 3 August Jax Robinson: {{Who doesn't }} Rue Wydown: +Jax+ You brought back gifts? August Jax Robinson: +Rue+ Slop from the Hole STSF_BluRox: Heather...:: pauses:: Easy Lt, plot the course, but wait to engage until we've gotten word from the XO that we've gotten everyone back aboard:: STSF Seiben: ::Nods in acknowledgement:: Rue Wydown: +Jax+ Well, as long as it's not head lice or something else objectionable.....::pauses for a moment:: How's your department doing? Ready to get underway? Heather Jamieson: :: Wonders about Jax. They have not gotten along well over these years, but something happened to her... :: STSF_BluRox: Heather, when we arrive to Melos 3, I'll be asking you to make some detailed scans of the colony, as well as anything in the local terrain, or even orbital that could be affecting them. We always have a chance that it involves others not meaning them well either. August Jax Robinson: +Rue+ Engineering is as ready as it will ever be STSF_BluRox: Prepare some mission packs so your team is ready to go down and investigate Heather Jamieson: Understood. I will look for scans recorded before we got there as well. Heather Jamieson: :: Polls Starfleet records for Melos III scans from the colony itself and passing ships :: August Jax Robinson: ::Sits in her office, leans her head back and stares at the ceiling:: Rue Wydown: +Jax+ Fantastic! Wydown out. ::enters the lift to head up to the bridge, looking over her PADD:: STSF Seiben: ::Looks up star-charts of the area and travel route:: STSF_BluRox: :: presses button on arm a chair:: All departments, report in mission readiness August Jax Robinson: ::Looks down at reports on systems:: Heather Jamieson: Science is ready. STSF_BluRox: Thank you Heather, Helm, you’re set, yes? STSF Seiben: Yes sir, all set Rue Wydown: ::steps out on the bridge:: Whotcha. ::grins;; STSF_BluRox: Good day Commander? Medical and the other departments have checked in except engineering. Any word there? Has Jax reported back onboard and given the extra duty she was assigned, in recompense for her offenses? August Jax Robinson: ::Tosses PADD:: Rue Wydown: Engineering has reported that all is ready. As to the extra duties, perhaps we should talk about that as that information wasn't passed on to me. ::quirks an eyebrow:: STSF_BluRox: Very well. let us get underway first. I’ll need to update you on the new mission anyway. STSF_BluRox: And, it would be inappropriate to discuss that other matter, here...... Heather Jamieson: :: Gathering data from Melos III, letting the computer compile a timeline :: STSF_BluRox: Mr Seiben...set course, Melos 3, Warp 4 STSF Seiben: ::nods:: Aye sir. Warp 4. Setting course to Melos 3 STSF Seiben: ::and does::: STSF Seiben: Course set for Melos 3. Rue Wydown: New helmsman, eh? ::checking out Seiben:: STSF Seiben: ::nods:: Hello sir. STSF_BluRox: Aye, seems we have a relative of one of my previous helmsmen. Let's just hope he's a good as the other. Heather Jamieson: :: Readying sensors :: STSF_BluRox: Ok folks...here are our new orders. Rue Wydown: Well, so far so good, I suppose Heather Jamieson: :: Listens :: STSF_BluRox: Melos 3: Small planet located in the Melos star system. Located midway between Darbet and Gaithe, Melos 3 had been left un-colonized for some time as both sides wished to claim, but neither wanted to start a war while applying for Federation membership. Now, with both having become Federation members, a joint colony had been established about 20 years previously, but now reports of strange occurrences, broken machinery and sabotage have surfaced. We are to investigate and put a stop to what we find. STSF Seiben: ::listens as well:: Rue Wydown: Oooooooooh, a mystery have we? STSF_BluRox: So, we need to look, see who oversees what, what they export and what they import, and from whom the reports have been sent from. From what I understand, there are several towns spread out along the main continent, so it will be more complicated. STSF Seiben: ::sounds Mysterious:: STSF_BluRox: So it seems Rue. Regardless, it's been on Adm Calvert's list of items that SF has requested to be investigated, and since we were available, it fell to u PAUSE SIM PAUSE SIM PAUSE SIM STSF Seiben: ::paused:: STSF_BluRox: So next week, we'll be getting to Melos 3 and will proceed with our mission once we arrive STSF_BluRox: Any questions? STSF_BluRox: I promise, no spider wasps STSF Seiben: lol Rue Wydown: Uh huh :P STSF_BluRox: Alrighty then, if there is nothing else. I'll see you either at Talon or here next week. Have a nice week/weekend. STSF_BluRox: Crew Dismissed
  5. RES TALON MISSION BRIEFING 51709.21 - SEASON 22 The Talon and Stinger have taken up station at the Justarus Shipyards, and have been updating what we know from the information that the Galae here had collected when they fought off the Othan and kept the station. Pexil and Koga are making sure weapons are resupplied and updating astrometric maps with areas we hold and those now held by the Othan. Leah, Destorie and t'Vatrix have been updated by the station commander and are quickly meeting to discuss a few of the more private details. BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM KhreRiovtRex: +Koga+ Try to get our maps as up to date as au can :: holds up a finger to NDak:: STSF Seiben: +t'Vatrix+ Ie, will do. I'll speak with astrometrics NDak: ::nods:: KhreRiovtRex: +Koga+ make sure that the Stinger receives the information as well. STSF Seiben: +t'Vatrix+ Understood KhreRiovtRex: +trPexil+ Make sure we have all weapons resupplied, and make sure au take on what scanning probes that au may need to help us root out our enemy KhreRiovtRex: :: turns back to N'Dak:: KhreRiovtRex: Hann'yyo for waiting a siuren.... Lerak trPexil: +Vatrix+ I am working on both, and even some supplies not in our normal inventory. KhreRiovtRex: While Leahval is off verifying the encryption, code is authentic...which, I know it has to be, but I have to have it for my own sanity KhreRiovtRex: Io siuren:: NDak: ::Nods patiently:: Lerak trPexil: :: Sees that woman again ahead of him in another line :: KhreRiovtRex: +Pexil+ Hann'yyo, see that au make sure to contact the Stinger's ops officer and make sure they get the same Lerak trPexil: +t'Vatrix+ Understood.

NDak: Ie KhreRiovtRex: And just as I find some strength to go forward with a mission that has little hope of success, I get this .....message. I am almost afraid to hope that it is true. For if it is a hoax....I'm not sure I could bear to accept losing him again STSF Seiben: ::chats up the Astrometrics Officer:: We'll need the most up to date maps you have in this area. ::shows an ISD of the intended area to be mapped:: We'll need 'em for Stinger too.. make copies KhreRiovtRex: As I asked......au can't say a word...na to anyone. if it truly is him, he's obviously na in a position to reveal himself just yet. Last report was that he had been gravely injured. NDak: ::Nods:: Ie, as you said. Lerak trPexil: :: Closes up the panel, satisfied the mechanisms are as they should be :: NDak: Perhaps better for his enemies to think him dead m_k_tksa: ::Taps a few commands to have the message routed to the ship, for whenever it does come, decides she needs to be doing something else instead:: Hanny'yo for au's hospitality. I think I'm going to go inspect the medical provisions on the ship. ::nods to the attendant who was watching the office she was in:: STSF Seiben: Thanks, old son! KhreRiovtRex: And if he were alive, he may just be attempting to keep my temper in check. He would most likely anticipate that I'd go headlong right to Othan if possible... NDak: Ie Lerak trPexil: :: Moves onto check other supplies, that woman still in view, Pexil mutters :: Hmm NDak: How do au wish to proceed, then? STSF Seiben: Astrometrics Officer> Sure. I'll download them to your ISD KhreRiovtRex: As it is, I'm still half tempted to place au in charge of Talon, and take the Stinger myself and go see just how many of them I can take before the Elements take me..... KhreRiovtRex: This is where I need au, to keep me in check as well.... KhreRiovtRex: As we discussed, we really can na lose anymore ships, they could regroup and strike here, now that half their taskforce came to our aid on Homeworld. m_k_tksa: ::heads back to Talon while checking the calculations on her ISD:: NDak: ::Smirks despite himself:: Imagine telling auself that several years ago. KhreRiovtRex: :: stops and grins back at him:: Indeed...... but we've both changed over the years. However, the old ways can come back to me easily once I am angered. And I've never been so angry and hurt as I have been now.... Just don't leave the controls to au ship laying around, or au may find it missing KhreRiovtRex: But as I was saying.... and they could circle back around to ch'Rihan if they see us forging off into their space...especially if they know they have enough ships there to deal with our small task force Lerak trPexil: :: Inspects crates full of other torpedo components :: KhreRiovtRex: What I was thinking, after talking with Khre'Riov tr'Dar, was that we could operate some short-range missions while based out of this location. We will find and remove any Othan influence in any of the surrounding systems.... NDak: ::Nodding, he was pleased by the compliment.:: NDak: Ie, I believe that would be prudent. m_k_tksa: ::steps back through the airlock and heads to medical to check on the progress there:: STSF Seiben: ::looks over the area in astrometrics:: NDak: We can do them a great deal of harm, with out endangering our position. What did au have in mind? Lerak trPexil: :: Goes to defensive systems, shield regeneration :: KhreRiovtRex: and there are still those ships we were in pursuit of, we've cut across and are certainly a bit ahead of them. I want to try to thin their ranks, and set a ambush for them. m_k_tksa: ::amused to hear music playing in medical as she enters:: Lerak trPexil: :: Finds older units, but works perfectly well :: KhreRiovtRex: I'd like to hear au thoughts on this as well. Meanwhile, let us go check on the others and make sure they've what we need to do this. m_k_tksa: ::not about to scold the staff for what she hears because it seems to have lifted spirits, goes in search of the instigator of the toe tapping;; NDak: :Nods:: Ie KhreRiovtRex: I'll go check with Pexil and Koga. Would au mind updating the Daise Maenak for me? She doesn't favor my presence anymore, but need to make sure she's onboard with our plans. Lerak trPexil: :: Has them load these components as well :: KhreRiovtRex: Find me afterwards fhaen. I wish to hear some suggestions from au and the crew on how best to proceed. NDak: ::Nods:: Ie m_k_tksa: ::leans against the exame room door, watching as several maenaken staff are putting things away with a pep in their step:: m_k_tksa: Perhaps I should have thought to do this years ago. ::watching with a grin:: KhreRiovtRex: :: stands to cross to the exit and then turns back to N'Dak:: And Destorie........ Hann'yyo. Hann'yyo for everything....... NDak: ::He smiled, genuinely:: It is na thing. I owe you much, this is a small measure of repayment for the debt. Lerak trPexil: :: Looks at liquids and other supplies of that nature :: KhreRiovtRex::: nods:: it will be remembered. H'nah, let's see to the others KhreRiovtRex: :: motions for him to proceed her to the door and to find the others NDak: ::Follows, straightening his uniform, thinking he should have worn the cape:: KhreRiovtRex: :: heads off to find Pexil and Koga:: m_k_tksa: ::grabs a case of supplies and joins the group putting things away, swaying to the music:: STSF Seiben: Hm. Interesting area this, yeah? KhreRiovtRex: :: queries the etreeh and heads to Pexil's location:: STSF Seiben: Thwomp. Lerak trPexil: :: Scans for the purity of a liquid used in certain kinds of anti-personnel munitions :: KhreRiovtRex: tr'Pexil.....status report Lerak trPexil: Oh. I am continuing to inspect the items we requested, and anything else that may come in handy... anti-personnel gel for example... in case we wish to stop a large number of them...for questioning. Lerak trPexil: I have torpedoes and shield regeneration components on their way now. KhreRiovtRex: Au have had na trouble receiving au requests? Na issue getting supplies sent to stinger as well? NDak: ::He headed off to find the Daise'Maenke:: Lerak trPexil: Not yet. Our offer of non-military supplies and a repair or two at this facility helped matters. m_k_tksa: ::humming along with the tune piping in:: Lerak trPexil: There has been this woman though.. she is at places where I too am. I don't think I'm being followed, but.. just odd. NDak: ::He queried the etreh on her location and headed that way:: KhreRiovtRex: I know the Khre'Riov fahd, he is also a family friend of my house...if au have issues, come to me, I'll see au get what au need. We will be meeting shortly, to discuss our plans. I'll need to check with Koga as well. I will want him present as well KhreRiovtRex: PAUSE SIM KhreRiovtRex: PAUSE SIM

USS REPUBLIC MISSION BRIEFING 51709.18 - Season 25 The new crew members are getting settled while everyone had been given the next 3 days as Shore Leave to spend either at the station or the ship as they wish.

I was only aware of one.... August Jax Robinson: and no one is standing up, or pointing it out. if we let one person get railroaded, then we are no better then the Romulans August Jax Robinson: we are worse STSF_BluRox: August, nobody was railroaded. Ayumu has made several errors, and some we let slide, however this was one we could not overlook Jas: Jas> :: Enters sickbay as the door swishes open and steps across the threshold with an anticipatory grin spreading across his features :: STSF_BluRox: Do you think we enjoyed doing this to one of our own?

August Jax Robinson: yes' Rue Wydown: ::makes a few more notes on her PaDD about the ship's condition:: STSF_BluRox: No.....I did not, but I worked with the Admiral and came up with a solution that the defense and Ayumui could both live with August Jax Robinson: I think as long as someone took the blame.... everyone else is happy Heather Jamieson: Perhaps if I just pressed harder I could have saved your career. STSF_BluRox: Now you are being a fool Heather Jamieson: So, Seiben is it? Are you her replacement? Randy Calvert: Security> +Calvert+ Yes Admiral. We have Commander Jax and Admiral BluRox in holding cells. August Jax Robinson: am I? not every error was Ayumui's fault.. STSF Seiben: Seiben> Yes, that's me. And I suppose so. Randy Calvert: :::arches his brow::: Randy Calvert: +Security+ Under who's order is the Admiral being detained under? :::notes his voice starting to tense slightly::: STSF_BluRox: Are you forgetting the time on the planet we broke the prime directive, because she was speeding and killed some holy bird? STSF Seiben: Kasuga> That's all right. We did what we could do. ::smiles:: I'm not sure what I'm gonna do, but definitely spend alot of time relaxing when I get back to Earth is in the plans August Jax Robinson: it's a stupid bird STSF_BluRox: or the time she forgot the speed, when we were traversing a wormhole and shot us somewhere we were stranded for 6 months? August Jax Robinson: why does it goo back to the bird? Randy Calvert: Security> +Calvert+ :::pauses for a moment as he looks at the logs and rechecks it::: Ummmm.... well that's the thing, sir. It appears to be under hers. Jas: ::moves through the sickbay inspecting the equipment, taking stock of the available technology, and getting himself familiar with everything:: Randy Calvert: :::mutters a few choice obscenities under his breath::: August Jax Robinson: Do you think I forgot that?! I almost had my Son on some dead planet back then Heather Jamieson: I have billions of stars to map. STSF Seiben: Seiben> Sounds nice/ STSF_BluRox: August, she has a problem with speed, she has a need for it and forgets. She is not under arrest, she has to leave the fleet, but I've connections that will get her work in a good line of work STSF_BluRox: She, and everyone else will be safer...and she agreed to this. STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::Heather:: Fun fun. STSF_BluRox: Not everyone is cut out for that job August Jax Robinson: So what do you want from me really? an apology?

I have seen how the higher ups let others take the fall Jas: ::lets out a soft snore:: Heather Jamieson: :: takes a drink :: August Jax Robinson: I know what is behind the brass door, I grew up in it August Jax Robinson: they expect us to fall on our swords and take the blame Randy Calvert: :::waits for the doors to open before strolling into the corridor and around the corner::: STSF_BluRox: August, nobody let anyone take the fall here. She made a mistake. One that someone at one point was going to try to turn onto you, until I pulled up the logs. STSF_BluRox: I pulled the files, I checked the times....she made a mistake, clear and simple. Randy Calvert: :::pauses a moment as the large double doors swoosh opens and steps inside::: Rue Wydown: ::Startles at the snoring noise, debates on whether or not she should wake the poor bloke up or not:: August Jax Robinson: I can sit here as long as you can Randy Calvert: :::heads over to the officer on duty::: Why is the Admiral sitting in my holding cell?

Not the best way to make a first impression, mate. ::Smirks:: STSF Seiben: S> Hmm. August Jax Robinson: Randy Calvert: So you saw the wonderful accommodations we have on the station's brig and just felt you had to experience them for yourself? :::slightly amused voice::: Jas: Jas> ::raises himself up on one elbow and quirks an eyebrow at his superior officer:: I didn't realize I was on duty yet...sir. STSF_BluRox: :: smiled slightly at his joke:: They were better than most I've been in. Randy Calvert: That might be part of the problem... they're too comfortable to make her come to her senses and want to leave. STSF_BluRox: Sir, I want to apologize for my officer. She was out of line, and I had hoped that talking with her would make her come to her senses. I'm not sure what is really going on there, except her husband is off on some mission. Randy Calvert: I've reviewed her file and I'm aware of the .... unusual circumstances.... that have come up as a result. STSF_BluRox: My problem is...well, if my crew can not behave and follow the chain of command, then I've failed somewhere, and I feel responsible as well. Hence, why I put myself in the brig to help serve for her insubordination Rue Wydown: Still, you really shouldn't be napping in the middle of sickbay. Not the best impression for the returning crew members to find you zonked out here. STSF_BluRox: I don't know, maybe I'm getting too old for this. If they don't respect me, then do I endanger everyone? Maybe it's time for me to think about retiring? August Jax Robinson: ::Sits in the corner, lowers her head:: Randy Calvert: :::Leans back against the wall as he listens::: STSF_BluRox: I couldn't even get her to see where she was wrong. She all but accused us of railroading the helmsman, that it was someone else's fault. Randy Calvert: Well, that's where you and I disagree. From what I can see from the reports from you AND the crew... they follow you to the ends of the universe. Sometimes over it. STSF Seiben: Kasuga> ::Enters the transport, pretty nice looking with a nice sized stateroom for the trip. Enters it and finds her suitcase already there:: Jas: Jas> ::slowly gets up and brushes himself off:: Sorry, I...it won't happen again -- ::pauses:: -- you don't need any medical treatment, do you? STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::continues to drink with Heather:: Heather Jamieson: Well. :: Sits with Seiben :: What's your story? Rue Wydown: I thought you said you weren't on duty? ::smirks:: Randy Calvert: While I might disagree with some of your methods, you get the job done. Randy Calvert: At the end of the day, that's the most important thing. STSF Seiben: My story? Well, I come from a long line of Starfleet officers. Seemed in the blood to join up, though I've always liked piloting. It's nice that my cousin Hans served on the Republic before me. Randy Calvert: The officers that do that.... I give some pretty wide leeway. August Jax Robinson: ::Curls up, knowing people fear her grandfather more than the devil:: STSF_BluRox: I appreciate that sir, in the long run, yes.....we're a bit unconventional at times...but we do the best we can Jas: Jas> ::smiles back, but responds in an assured tone:: Wouldn't stop me if someone were in need of assistance, sir. Randy Calvert: Now.... in my opinion... I think Commander Jax is caught up in her head. Yes, she's had some stuff she's had to deal with... but with all of her sudden free time, she's getting up all in the head. Rue Wydown: That's good. ::pats the top of the biobed:: No, I'm just going through the final inspections on the renovations to the ship. This is just one of my stops. STSF Seiben: Kasuga>:: relaxes in her plush bed, gazing out at the window nearby:: Randy Calvert: Idle hands are the devil's workshop.... that's what my Great Grandmother would always say. STSF_BluRox: Yea, she's usually very busy, too much free time I think August Jax Robinson: ::Closes her eys and tries to think about what her 6 kids are up to:: STSF_BluRox: Yes, exactly STSF_BluRox: (NO!! don't do that) Jas: Jas> ::hesitates for a moment:: Would you...mind if I accompanied you on your inspections? I've hardly spent time on a starship of this size and, well, I would appreciate the opportunity to really take it in and accustom myself with the Republic. STSF_BluRox: TWO MINUTE WARNING Randy Calvert: Put her back to work. In fact, I would really push her and give her some extra duties. Heather Jamieson: Pilot... perhaps you can help me with my flying.. STSF_BluRox: (Jas, we can help you accustom yourself to the ship with a paintbrush!) Randy Calvert: She seems to be the type that uses the stress and the surroundings to figure things out. Heather Jamieson: Are you taken? STSF_BluRox: That might be for the best. Also, it gets her out of your brig so I don't have to leave her here with you. Jas: (Think we need a roller for this job!) STSF Seiben: (Been there done that) Randy Calvert: Well, the upkeep here is not cheap. I don't think she'll like what my security team thinks are great ways of keeping people busy are. Rue Wydown: No not at all. I've got a few science labs to check out, then the bridge if you're game Randy Calvert: The last I saw.... it involved cleaning down in waste recycling. Randy Calvert: So I think you might be able to find some better ways to utilize her talents. August Jax Robinson: ::Closes her eyes and tries to meditate:: Jas: Jas> ::grins back:: You bet I am. August Jax Robinson: ::Sighs, hating it::: STSF_BluRox: We have the same plan. Ok, I'll go get her out and get her out of your hair. I believe I still owe you dinner as well? STSF_BluRox: Let me gather them up they have another day of leave, I'll get everyone settled, get our next mission from your ops folks and will meet you in a bit, that ok? Randy Calvert: Indeed. And you'll find your new orders waiting for you in the morning. The whole lot of you have had more than enough time off. Randy Calvert: Very good. STSF Seiben: Kasuga> ::feels the ship powering up then soon making its way to Earth, she catches one last glimpse of the Republic from her window, and wishes them luck:: STSF_BluRox: Yes, because a trial was an excellent use of my free time....:: rolls her eyes at him and grins: STSF_BluRox: PAUSE STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM Jas: ::paused:: STSF Seiben: ::Paused:: August Jax Robinson: ::pezz:: Heather Jamieson: :: paused :: STSF_BluRox: Nice sim all, and thank you Admiral for helping out Rue Wydown: Sorry guys, I gotta go. Thanks for visiting Admiral STSF_BluRox: Next week we'll retrieve Jax and get started on our new mission STSF_BluRox: Crew Dismissed
  7. USS REPUBLIC MISSION BRIEFING 51708.28 - Season 25 The trial has been completed and Kasuga relieved of duty and removed from Star Fleet, her personal effects have been delivered to the station and transportation has been arranged for her. Meanwhile, another Seiben has come onto the scene and Blu has plucked him from the station's pending roster as her new helmsman, hoping he was as good as the last. She has also assigned Jas, as Chief Medical Officer as he returns to the Republic after a year of study back at Star Fleet. Rue and Blu need to get them situated, let the rest of the crew have some shoreleave, and figure out what to do with Jax. BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM Rue Wydown: ::looking over the personnel records, hoping that for once maybe they'll get the staffing thing straightened out:: STSF Seiben: ::in the station's bar having a drink:: Jas: :: sitting across the table from Seiben, utterly perplexed and ignoring his own beverage :: Then you...you did --what--? STSF Seiben: Yeah, I couldn't believe it myself. I'm just glad it worked out the way it did. ::Sipping his beer:: Jas: :: Shakes his head incredulously and picks up his glass :: That doesn't even sound like it would fit regulation. August Jax Robinson: {{Sorry }} STSF Seiben: It probably doesn't to be honest. Rue Wydown: ::enter the station's refreshment center, looking at the pictures on the PADD and then the patrons she sees:: STSF Seiben: (Hey) STSF_BluRox: :: having finished dinner with the Admiral, she had other issues to deal with, otherwise, she'd have hung around for a few more drinks, but not really liking his choice of drinks, begged off to make sure the crew matters were taken care of, and make some other decisions. She most likely will have wished she had stayed for those drinks.... STSF_BluRox: (Hey Jax) STSF Seiben: But still, didn't get into any trouble. No harm no foul I suppose. Jas: :: Goes to take a sip but pauses :: You don't still have it...do you? Jas: (Evenin' Jax!) STSF Seiben: ::eats one of his nachos with cheese:: Yeah, I've still got it. It's in my house in Munich. STSF Seiben: Makes for a fine centrepiece. Rue Wydown: ::approaching the two officers at the bar:: Oi. ::grins:: Whotcha. August Jax Robinson: ((Heather has an early morning and had to go to bed early}} STSF Seiben: Oh.. ::Looks up at Rue:: Hello, Commander. Rue Wydown: New recruits for Republic, right? STSF_BluRox: (pfft,) STSF Seiben: Yes, ma'am. ::looking at his PADD:: Jas: :: Finally gulps down some of his drink :: Damn shame, I would have been interested in inspecting it. Who knows? Could've come in handy out -- :: Straightens in his seat :: Hello, Commander. New recruits, yes. August Jax Robinson: ::takes a seat on the floor and tries to meditate, hoping it will calm herself down... kinda mad still:: STSF_BluRox: :: knows that after they had spoken earlier, that Rue would take care of the new staff:: STSF_BluRox: :: heads down to the brig:: Rue Wydown: Welcome aboard. You mates gotten your crew quarters and shift information yet? STSF Seiben: No, I've not yet sir. STSF Seiben: And thank you. Jas: :: Gives his PADD on the table a quick pat and a smile :: Yes, sir. I had it sorted during the trial. STSF Seiben: ::hands Rue his PADD as well with his transfer orders:: Ahead of me then. I've not heard anything yet since arriving here. STSF_BluRox: :: enters the lift, having spoken to Randy a bit about this, but not sure he thought she was serious about it:: STSF_BluRox: :: exit the lift as it reaches the detention level of the statiion:: August Jax Robinson: ::Lays back on the floor and looks up at the ceiling:: Jas: Good luck with station administration, they're...typical. :: Grimaces :: Rue Wydown: ::taps some information into her PADD, passing the information on to the quartermaster before looking up:: Fantastic. Mr Seiben, you're assignments should be coming in just a few minutes. ::glances at Jas:: Medical officer, eh? ::grins:: You've got your work cut out for you. STSF_BluRox: :: enters and finds the officer on duty, and points down the corridor towards Jax:: Jas: :: Looks to Rue with a wry grin :: If what I've heard about the Republic is true and based off current experience, I'd imagine so. I can't wait for the opportunity to serve aboard. STSF_BluRox: :: shakes her head at the security officer, who was questioning her instructions, but finally put his hand out, accepting her communicator and padd, then leading her down towards Jax:: Rue Wydown: Well welcome to both of you. ::grins:: We'll be getting back to work in a short bit, got a bit more things to clean up before we set off. STSF Seiben: Indeed, my cousin Hans who served on the Republic D told me of the stories of things he experienced. I'm eager to serve aboard. STSF Seiben: ::nods:: Rue Wydown: Don't believe everything your cousin told you. ::smirks:: STSF_BluRox: :: stops with the security guard in front of Jax, and looks over at her to see if she has calmed down or not:: Jas: :: Gestures with his glass :: I may need another of these for some of those stories. August Jax Robinson: ::Laying on the floor of her cell, lifts head and looks at Blu:: hi STSF Seiben: ::nods:: Yes, I won't. Everything he says needs to be taken with a grain of salt. But thanks for the welcome. STSF_BluRox: :: glances at Jax, then turns back to the guard nodding, as she steps into the cell across from Jax and the guard activates the confinement beam STSF Seiben: Yes, some of them are whoppers. :;to Jas:: Rue Wydown: Tell you what, I'll get your next round. ::motions to the bartender for them:: Enjoy them while you can boys. STSF Seiben: Thanks, sir. Jas: :: Beams at the commander :: Thank you very much, sir. August Jax Robinson: how'd court go? August Jax Robinson: ::Stands up slowly:: STSF_BluRox: :: takes a seat on the bench and looks over at Jax:: The trial has been completed Rue Wydown: ::nods to both of them, grins and then heads down the bar top to see if she can review her last of her reports and then she too can have fun:: August Jax Robinson: ::sits down on the other bunk:: STSF_BluRox: (separate cell, just across the hall) Jas: :: Finishes the last of his drink as the next round arrives at their table :: So what's your posting again? I don't believe you mentioned it. STSF Seiben: Heh, funnily enough I'm going to be assigned to the helm/operations department. STSF Seiben: My cousin whom I mentioned before also served in this role on the Republic D. STSF_BluRox: ::looks across at Jax:: Ms Ayumu accepted a plea deal, and will not be sentenced to any additional time. Jas: :: Eyebrows :: Really? Runs in the family, huh? STSF_BluRox: However, she has been discharged from Star Fleet, and haas lost her license for now. STSF Seiben: I suppose so, but yes. My family has a long history in Starfleet, and quite alot of Seibenses serve in various capacities across Starfleet. August Jax Robinson: ::Shakes her head:: so stupid Jas: Well here's to yet another Seiben on the Republic. :: Raises his glass :: STSF_BluRox: Yes, she was, and it wasn't her first mistake. At least she was smart enough to take the deal I was able to work out for her STSF Seiben: ::raises glass:: And here's to a more successful second tour for you. Where you won't be turned into a giant reptile. Rue Wydown: ::scribbles on her report, correcting a few typos:: August Jax Robinson: how long is my sentence in here for? STSF_BluRox: Unknown, you really pissed off the Admiral, and embarrassed me. Jas: :: Clinks glasses and chuckles before taking a sip :: First tour, actually. I was serving on a planetary science team before that whole lizard episode. This will be my first official posting on a Starfleet vessel. August Jax Robinson: all of my communication requests have fallen on deaf ears. I have been denied legal rep, no one will contact my Grandfather... so I am a hostage? STSF Seiben: Oh, I see. Well, we're in the same boat then. Goodluck. August Jax Robinson: prisoner? STSF_BluRox: No, you passed out and were unable to discuss. When I came down to discuss with you, you flew off into another rage filled rant. You were given the chance to apologize to the admiral, as he realized that the crew had been under quite a bit of stress, and you refused. Your legal council was otherwise STSF Seiben: ::sips his drink with Jas and cardboard Jamieson, who's having a Jameson:: STSF_BluRox: engaged with Ayumu's case, and I"m sure she'll be down to talk with you shortly Rue Wydown: ((That's a lot of "J"s)) Jas: You too. Hopefully we'll be meeting more often like this than in the sickbay. :: Smirks :: STSF Seiben: ( ) STSF Seiben: There's always Ten Forward after our shifts. August Jax Robinson: So there is only 1 Jag on Earth? STSF Seiben: Hopefully we'll get the same shift. August Jax Robinson: ::crosses her arms:: STSF_BluRox: I'm sure there are plenty on Earth, but seeing as we're on Deep Space Station 344, there is one. STSF_BluRox: I want to know Jax, what were you thinking? Calvert has always been a friend of this crew. Hell, at one point, he used to be 'part' of the crew. What would possess you to go flying off the handle and accuse him of what you did? August Jax Robinson: because I am tired of one person taking the blame for a group decision August Jax Robinson: you should be too! August Jax Robinson: everything had been twisted and chopped up into a lie Rue Wydown: Action>Sieben's assignment information comes across his PADD Jas: ((Sorry, internet lagged there. Nothing and then...all the messages!)) STSF Seiben: Oh. ::picks up his PADD when it beeps and read it:: Jas: :: Glances over at Seiben's PADD with interest, but stays silent :: STSF Seiben: ::looks it over:: Nice. Alpha Shift, and my quarters seem to be in a nice part of the ship as well. STSF_BluRox: Well, don't worry, I'm taking the blame for it. That's why I'm in here. Jas: :: Takes a sip of his drink :: Does it have a view? STSF_BluRox: Evidently my leadership skills are no longer useful or able to be obeyed by the crew. If I am that disrespected, that my crew will behave this way, and refuses to make reparations when I ask, then it is I who's at fault. STSF Seiben: I believe it does, ::looks up where his quarters is on the ship:: STSF_BluRox: Obviously I am no longer fit to command this crew, if they do not respect me enough to obey the chain of command, or feel the need to verbally assault a flag officer, one of those I report directly too, and......one of the very few personal friends I have. August Jax Robinson: see! August Jax Robinson: you are making my point even more clear Jas: :: Lets out an impressed whistle :: Lucky, lucky. Hm, Alpha Shift, Alpha...I think that's my assignment as well. STSF_BluRox: So, I will serve this time for how the crew has responded STSF Seiben: Oh nice. That STSF_BluRox: If that is how you feel, then I will ask for my padd back, and will prepare my resignation STSF_BluRox: because evidently, I am no longer fit to command, if this is how my crew behaves Rue Wydown::: finishes up her report, feeling like it's time for her to enjoy some ale:: STSF Seiben: That's good at least. Though it doesn't sound like your quarters situation isn't good? For an ensign, I should count myself lucky on that respect. August Jax Robinson: no, the point is that they twisted everything to their liking and not put blame where it belongs STSF Seiben: Though I think bridge officers need quarters closer to the bridge in case of emergencies. Jas: :: Frowns and taps away on his PADD :: Not particularly, it's...hold on one second...there it is. It's a ways down there, not even close to the sickbay! STSF Seiben: Really? Who'd you PO to get such a bad assignment? Rue Wydown: ((Never mess with the station quartermaster :P )) STSF Seiben: Though I have a feeling I've been bumped up somewhat with Ayumu's discharge, which might've been a factor in that. Jas: I can't think think of anyone who -- :: Lightbulb :: Jas: :: Eyes narrow :: She wouldn't have. STSF Seiben: Who? STSF Seiben: ::sips his beer:: August Jax Robinson: ::Shakes her head:: my Dad warned me about what happens on Ships... I didn't believe him. but he was right August Jax Robinson: I don't know why it took me so long to see it STSF_BluRox: Looks right over at Jax:: First off, there is no "They". Second, if that's how you feel, then I really should not be leading this crew any more. You are sitting there questioning what I've explained and continuing your rant, just proves my point. I can't keep the crew safe and doing their duty if they disrespect me so badly Jas: :: Takes a swig back of his drink with a grimace :: That damned administrative officer. Can you believe she didn't even believe that I was turned into a lizard?? I mean, the gall! STSF Seiben: Uh oh. I see. Rue Wydown: ::half listening to the conversation down the bar from her, trying not to spit out her ale at the lizard comment:: STSF_BluRox: And no, before you make another leap, the Admiral did not sentence me to the brig, I did that myself, to serve for your transgression against the Admiral. And try to make up to him for the embarrassment I’m feeling. August Jax Robinson: all of this has nothing to do with you. it has to do with the lunatics who are in charge of the whole fleet!! STSF_BluRox: I am feeling for how my crew has behaved here, when he's done nothing but help us out in the past. Jas: :: Looks hopefully to Seiben :: You believe me, right? PAUSE SIM PAUSE SIM PAUSE SIM August Jax Robinson: ::Paused:: STSF Seiben: ::Paused::: STSF_BluRox: Ok, good work everyone. STSF_BluRox: Cool, so with that then, Crew Dismissed. Have a safe and relaxing holiday weekend
  8. USS REPUBLIC MISSION BRIEFING - 51708.21 - Season 25 After meeting with Jax and Rue, and being unable to calm Jax down, Blu's decided she needs a few extra hours to think about her situation. In the meantime, she had sent a proposal to briefly meet with Lt Medley before heading back into the Review Board to deal with Kasuga. BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::Settles back into his seat in the peanut gallery:: STSF_BluRox: :: stomps out of security, leaving Rue standing there with Jax and heading up to find Medley Randy Calvert: :::in his office working through his mountain of paperwork::: Randy Calvert: :::notices the pile always seems to be heavier when Republic is around::: STSF Seiben: Kasuga> ::in the courtroom, waiting around:: Jas: :: makes his way back to the courtroom, taking in the hustle and bustle of the station as he does so :: Heather Jamieson: :: sitting :: Rue Wydown: ::really not sure what to say to Jax at this point:: Yeahhhhh....I'm going to go now. STSF_BluRox: :: she was definitely in a bad mood at the moment, and nobody else had best give her any crap:: Rue Wydown: Lt Medley>::motions for Kasuga to follow her so that she and her client can meet with the Admiral:: STSF Seiben: Kasuga> ::nods and follows her:: Randy Calvert: Bookie Krauq> :::taking odds on what will happen when the session is resumed::: August Jax Robinson: have fun out there STSF_BluRox: :: sees the guard that she had sent the pad to Medley with:: Rue Wydown: You really aren't going to apologize to either Admiral? August Jax Robinson: me? STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::Reads the odds:: Hm. Rue Wydown: Yes, you. STSF_BluRox: You...:: pointing at him:: Where you able to find Lt medley? August Jax Robinson: no, if I am under oath I can't lie.. and I'm not sorry Jas: Brig Guard> :: nods crisply to Blu :: Yes, Admiral, I delivered the PADD as requested. Randy Calvert: Bookie Krauq> :::thinking about offering odds on the new case he just heard about as well::: Heather Jamieson: :: finds herself with seiben again :: STSF_BluRox: Thank you. Again, I'm sorry for my officer. and unfortunatly, she's going to be spending some more time with you until she learns to cool down. STSF Seiben: Seiben> Ahh. ::to Heather:: We meet again. How do you like these odds? The odds seem to favour jail time doesn't it? STSF_BluRox: ::: Heads to where he pointed for Medley:: Rue Wydown: I'm trying to figure out a way to salvage the situation here. ::scratching the back of her head:: Jas: Jas> :: enters the courtroom and takes a seat with his fellow crew, giving a little wave as he lowers himself onto the bench :: August Jax Robinson: ::Crosses her arms:: STSF_BluRox: :: walks to the door leans in:: Did you get the padd I sent? Heather Jamieson: Seems so, but it is not right. Jas: Brig Guard> :: makes his way back down to the turbo lift to return to the brig :: STSF Seiben: Seiben> Going to bet on something else? I'm still on the fence Rue Wydown: I understand the part of wanting to defend your shipmate, but I think it's the delivery method that you employed that BluRox was talking about and apologizing for that. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Aye, sir. As I understand it, you have a plea deal you'd like to propose. ::glancing from Kasuga to BluRox:: STSF Seiben: Kasuga> ::intrigued:: August Jax Robinson: it was the only way to get people to listen, everyone is just going through the motions. they don't care about any of us Heather Jamieson: the punishment does not fit. They are making her take the fall. STSF Seiben: Seiben> The classic scapegoat. It's too bad really. Jas: Jas> :: leans over at Seiben's remark, piping in :: You say that as if you've seen it happen before. August Jax Robinson: ::Looks at Rue:: you are too Rue Wydown: I am too, what? Heather Jamieson: Starfleet is not what I expected, nor is this inquiry. STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::Nods:: I have relatives in the JAG, so I hear about it quite a lot. STSF_BluRox: I do. There is enough here that if we push several previous issues along to prove ongoing negligence, she may be looking at doing some time. August Jax Robinson: you don't care what happens in there.... as long as it isn't you STSF_BluRox: I believe she had no bad intent, just unfortunate circumstances Jas: Jas> Where would you say this ranges in regards to similar situations you've, ah...heard about? STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::ponders:: Somewhat, I'd say. STSF Seiben: KAsuga> ::Listens quietly:: Jas: Brig Guard> :: emerges from the turbo lift in the brig and takes up his position, noting Rue's continued presence down the corridor :: Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Agreed. STSF_BluRox: I am proposing, that if she were to plea guilty to dereliction of duty, and not gross negligence, we would be willing to give her a general discharge Jas: Jas> :: leans back in the bench with a frown :: A damn shame. STSF_BluRox: This would keep her from doing any jail time, and she would still be eligible for veterans benefits. it would also help her get another employment in civilian life. She would have to requalify for her pilot's license. STSF Seiben: Kasuga> ::ponders:: STSF_BluRox: :: looks over at Kasuag:: I'm sorry, but that may be the best I can offer you. And you know I"m not here trying to screw you over STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::sighs:: It sure is. August Jax Robinson: ::Paces::: Heather Jamieson: :: very sad :: Rue Wydown: Of course I care what happens. But I also know that actions have consequences. Being mindful of what you do is important. It's the difference between coming home from a mission or our families getting letters from Admirals like Calvert that we're not coming home. I don't think Kasuga did anything on purpose, but she needs to be able to explain what happened. STSF Seiben: Kasuga> I know sir. I know you wouldn't do that to your crew. At least I wouldn't get any jail time. August Jax Robinson: she wasn't the only one there.. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> What do you think Kasuga? Jas: Jas> :: opens his mouth to say something, but seems to think better of it and simply lets out a defeated sigh :: Rue Wydown: No, she wasn't. August Jax Robinson: ::tilts her head:: Shouldn't you have a court hearing to.. you were on the Bridge running things STSF Seiben: Kasuga> I think it's the best outcome I could hope for. I could at least pursue some of my other passions in civilian life. STSF Seiben: K> And as mentioned, try to reapply for my pilots license. Rue Wydown: Ms Jamieson unfortunately was in command at the time of the incident. August Jax Robinson: ::Shakes her head:: Still your boat Jas: (( Brb )) STSF_BluRox: I would even sign off on that for you Kasuga, and note that there were extenuating circumstances. However; as Star Fleet Science has been monitoring this area, there's not much else open to us. They need to make an example. The freighter, they all died due to their Rue Wydown: As it's your boat too. And finger pointing isn't your situation any more than it is Kasuga's. STSF_BluRox: actions and tearing space enough that several more died due to the rift alien. You are alive and I'm trying to shield you the best I can. This is about it. STSF_BluRox: :: looks at timepiece:: The Admiral wants and answer by 11:40 sharp this morning. We've got 3 minutes to come to a decision. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> If Ms Kasuga is in agreement....::glances at her client:: STSF_BluRox: Will you accept this plea deal, or do you wish to continue fighting it? Randy Calvert: ((Damned bossy Admiral. Always putting everyone under the gun to get something done.)) Rue Wydown: ((Pretty much)) STSF Seiben: Thank you, Admiral. I appreciate that. I also appreciate the fact the fact that Starfleet's gotta make an example out of somebody. Well... ::looks to Medley:: I accept the plea bargain. August Jax Robinson: ::Sighs:: STSF_BluRox: :: knows she best have her rear back in the review board on time, Randy was already unhappy with the entire Jax situation:: STSF_BluRox: Very well. I'll let him know that we've come to an agreement and he can call the session back to order Randy Calvert: :::sets down his PADD as the computer chimed the time::: Rue Wydown: Lt Medley>::studies her to make sure there is no hesitation, because when it comes down to it, it's her client's call on what to do:: Rue Wydown: Lt Medley>::motions:: Let's return to the hearing room. STSF_BluRox: +Rue+ We're starting back up, just letting you know, we've come to an agreement, we'll talk afterwards Randy Calvert: :::deactivates the display and stands in front of his window, looking into the vastness of space::: Rue Wydown: +BluRox+ Aye, I'm on my way up. STSF_BluRox: :: turns and heads back to the conference rooms:: Jas: (( :: beams back in :: )) STSF Seiben: Kasuga> ::is serious about her decision, she knows her Starfleet career is over and there's no point to keep on fighting:: I would like to move on with my life and go onto the next chapter. I was expecting jail time, so this is the best outcome I could hope for really. STSF_BluRox: +Admiral+ We've on our way back in, we've worked out an agreement Rue Wydown: Sorry, Jax. We'll check back in with you shortly. Heather Jamieson: (need to sleep) STSF Seiben: (goodnight Heather) Randy Calvert: +BluRox+ Very good. Let's close this out. Jas: ( G'night, have a good week ) STSF_BluRox: (night Heather) Rue Wydown: Lt Medley>::feeling at least this time she had the chance to consult before Kasuga did something else wild and crazy like confess to being a serial killer or something:: Randy Calvert: ((Are there other charges I should be aware of??)) STSF_BluRox: ((wait, I think we still have one or two deaths unaccounted for, did she do it too? Will's missing as well) Randy Calvert: ((She's not actually gotten a sentence YET...)) Rue Wydown: ::after one last backward glance at Jax, heads out of the brig and back to the conference room:: Rue Wydown: Lt Medley>::settles in the conference room with her client:: STSF Seiben: Kasuga> ::Settles in as well, taking a sip of water:: Jas: Jas> :: straightens up in his seat as people make their way back into the courtroom :: Randy Calvert: :::receives word that everyone is ready and heads over to the door::: STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::Straightens up his posture as well:: Randy Calvert: :::straightens his uniform quickly and presses the button activating it::: August Jax Robinson: ::takes a seat, leans back.... waits:: Rue Wydown: ((i just read that as you just press a button to activate your uniform?))

Randy Calvert: :::takes his seat, in an amazingly activated uniform::: Jas: (( He's taking a page out of the latest Spider-Man film )) STSF Seiben: Kasuga & Seiben> ::Stands to attention as well:: STSF_BluRox: (lol) Jas: Jas> :: stand to attention :: Randy Calvert: OK. I believe both sides have done some talking during our break? Rue Wydown: Lt Medley>Aye, your honor. Randy Calvert: Admiral BluRox would you care to provide details? Rue Wydown: ::slips into the back of the room as quietly as possible:: STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::listens intently:: Randy Calvert: :::takes a sip of water from the glass at his side::: STSF_BluRox: Yes sir. We have accepted a plea deal from Lt Ayumu Kasuga. At call, is the following which was agreed upon. That she would plead guilty to a charge of dereliction of duty, and for doing so, we recommend a general discharge. Due to circumstances and being in good standing, with just a few previous deviations for the same type of inadvertent action, we recommend that she also forfeit her pilot's license at this time. Randy Calvert: :::glances down at the PADD reviewing the revised charges::: STSF_BluRox: :: hopes he'll accept these items as they had discussed earlier, and that he didn't' feel she was going to soft on her crew member:: Randy Calvert: Lt Kasuga... even with these modified charges, by accepting them, you would be pleading guilty to a crime and be separated from the fleet. You would lose your pilot license until which time you might requalify for it. Randy Calvert: Do you understand the revised charges and the terms of settlement? STSF Seiben: I do, your honour. Randy Calvert: Do you accept those terms, Lieutenant? STSF Seiben: I accept these terms. STSF_BluRox: :: sighs a little inwardly, but shuts her eyes, hating that she had been put in the position to do this to one of her crew members:: Randy Calvert: I also do not have objections to the revised charges. Therefore, I accept your revised guilty plea. Jas: Jas> :: shakes his head slightly to himself :: Rue Wydown: Lt Medley:: still waiting for Kasuga to say something crazy, like she's embezzled millions of latium bars and invested in hummus:: Randy Calvert: :::pauses for a moment::: I hereby revoke your pilot license effective immediately. This finding does not preclude you from earning the right to sit in a pilot's seat again however. STSF_BluRox: :: opens her eyes and looks back up at Calvert, relieved that he accepted the plea deal as well::STSF Seiben: Kasuga> ::almost says something of the time she jaywalked once, but thinks better of it:: STSF_BluRox: (careful, he'll re-instate the mail fraud charge) Randy Calvert: In addition, I hereby order your discharge from Starfleet, effective immediately. This will be a general discharge.... not a dishonorable discharge. You shall retain your rank and any benefits earned to date. Rue Wydown: Rue>::wondering now how to solve the problem of August:: August Jax Robinson: ((Dude, don't mess with the mail)) STSF_BluRox: (1), you can remove that one pip on her collar) Randy Calvert: These proceedings are now closed and this court stands adjourned.

STSF_BluRox: ::turns to Rue:: Rue, I did a search of qualified candidates on board and here at the station. There is a relative of one of our former Helmsman on the station. I'm having him transferred to the Republic. Can you go about finding him and getting him settled in. Name is Seiben. STSF Seiben: Seiben> Given the circumstances, that was probably the best option she could've hoped for. Rue Wydown: On it STSF_BluRox: ::I have to go talk to Rand...

  9. USS REPUBLIC MISSION BRIEFING 51708.14 - SEASON 25 The trial has taken a recess so that Blu could confer with Jax, who she found was in the brig, Wydown letting her know the admiral had put her there, and that she was passed out anyway. The others had went to eat and confer as well, while Blu went to see the Admiral. BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM August Jax Robinson: ::Paces in her cell::: STSF_BluRox: Thank you Rue, I'm going to go see what the Admiral has to say about this.

Jas: Brig Guard> ::Standing guard:: STSF_BluRox: Aye sir... Randy Calvert: :::spins around a moment, fixing two drinks, though only singles for now::: STSF_BluRox: :: keep calm, keep calm........hold your tongue...listen to what he has to say, she tells herself:: Rue Wydown: Can I see Cmdr Jax? ::tries a toothy grin, one in which she thinks might be charming, but probably comes off a bit too crazy:: Randy Calvert: :::sets one down in front of Blu and keeps one for himself::: You certainly have an.... :::pauses to find the right word::: animated crew. Heather Jamieson: :: eating :: Jas: Brig Guard> ::Nods briskly to Rue:: Feel free, ma'am. STSF Seiben: How's Jax doing? I appreciate her standing up for me, maybe I'll send her a card from jail.. if we aren't cellmates. ::bites into her food:: Rue Wydown: Thank ye. ::grins, and heads down the corridor to Jax's cell:: Jas: Jas> ::Noms on Space Foodâ:: August Jax Robinson: ::standing in the back of her cell, head against the wall:": STSF Seiben: ::eating some wonton noodles:: Randy Calvert: Just before we resumed the hearing, I had a visit from your Chief Engineer. August Jax Robinson: ::taps head on the wall, lightly.. over and over:: STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::eating some chicken:: Rue Wydown: Soooooooooo....::leans against the edge of the force field:: How's it going? STSF_BluRox: :: reaches in her pocket and pulls out a small case, taking a tablet and putting it away before accepting the drink:: August Jax Robinson: ::Turns around hearing a voice she knows:: STSF_BluRox: ::Sighs, takes the drink and downs it all at once:: Ok...what did she do? August Jax Robinson: it isn't going... I have been i here for months! August Jax Robinson: *in Randy Calvert: She was rather insistent that I had it in for your helmsman and that I was going to rot in hell, and she was going to make me pay for my crimes. August Jax Robinson: I can't sit here any longer! I am going nuts Rue Wydown: ::raises a brow::: Months. Really? August Jax Robinson: get me out of here Rue Wydown: O Randy Calvert: I tried.... I really did. I gave her multiple occasions to back down and to just leave. However she was hell bent on making a statement. Rue Wydown: I'd love to, but the mess you got yourself into...I'm not sure I can bail you out of. STSF_BluRox: ::rubs the bridge of her nose, feeling a massive headache coming on:: Sir...let me first say.....I'll take responsibility for the crew. They have been overworked and stressed in an emergency situation, and have not had much time to rest. August Jax Robinson: Call my Grandfather, he will get me out of here in 2 seconds Randy Calvert: I have a feeling things have been a bit difficult for them recently. And I'm willing to cut it some slack.... however there's a line that can't be crossed STSF_BluRox: We had been called to that station, found the creature there killing randomly and the crew had to lure it back onto the freighter, get it back to the rift and try not to be killed. Rue Wydown: Did you learn anything from this experience? STSF_BluRox: I understand sir, and I do apologize for anything that was said or done. Randy Calvert: ACTION>> Security is checking all deliveries for hacksaws and other objects that might be added to a cake August Jax Robinson: yes, let people know a head of time before you do something stupid so you don't have to sit in the brig STSF Seiben: Kasuga> ::Still eating and looking over PADDs:: Rue Wydown: ::snorts:: Rue Wydown: And....? STSF_BluRox: I believe she's been under some family stress as well, as what we were dealing with. Her husband, recently took some of their children to visit family, and then he was given other orders, we've not seen nor heard from him since. STSF_BluRox: For that matter, we cant' find who gave him orders to leave either. I know she's stressed over that as well. August Jax Robinson: ::Shrugs:: I don't know... I think I have been brainwashed to think like Will Jas: Jas> ::Downs another forkful while reviewing regulations for the Republic:: Randy Calvert: I'm hoping the time in the brig has allowed her to cool off for a bit. I'm not going to toss a general court martial at her... STSF_BluRox: I need to go talk to her, but she was passed out when I found my first officer, so I will check back shortly. I need to confer with her on the report she had prepared for me. the Defense team, had taken it and twisted her meaning to better suit their needs Rue Wydown: I"m not sure Will would have confronted an Admiral like that. Certainly not to that degree. STSF Seiben: (he would've just shot him and blew up the courtroom.. simples) August Jax Robinson: you are right..... he would have shot them Randy Calvert: I'll tell you what.... like I said... I have enough with this case. I don't want another court martial this week. Figure out what you want to do with her and bust her chops. Randy Calvert: I'll leave the details to you... and we can focus on wrapping up the matter at hand. Randy Calvert: I'll have the station staff prioritize a few more crews to helping with any outstanding repairs to the ship and we can arrange for everyone to have a few extra days to rest and recover. STSF_BluRox: Thank you sir, I appreciate that. I will go down and deal with her myself. As for this other mess..... I hate putting my crew into this light, there is so much finger pointing and blame being tossed around. I'll deal with my engineer sir, and as for the other matter at hand, might we also be able to use her good record as well, and lighten what punishment you deign to give out?> Randy Calvert: I think you also already have a couple of individuals slated to rotate aboard anyway. STSF_BluRox: Yes, we need a new medical and helmsman, they're patiently waiting for us to get through this trial. STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::drinks a can of pop:: Randy Calvert: I never wanted to toss her into the brig period. I'm a bit surprised at the defense shown... Rue Wydown: Ya gotta reign in your temper, ya know. Randy Calvert: but my inclination is more to just have her kicked out. August Jax Robinson: ::Takes a deep breath::: I don't know how much longer I can do this anymore ::Looks down, puts her hand to her head:: STSF_BluRox: let me go see the engineer, that was not like her, and I'm sure she was just trying to protect one of the crew. and I'll meet you in a few minutes when you reconvene Randy Calvert: There is no way we can just let what happened go.... but I think there are enough circumstances where we can draw the line at forced separation instead of incarceration. STSF_BluRox: If it is permissible and the defense will agree, I'd like to offer a discharge, Randy Calvert: :::chuckles::: I have no doubt she was trying to protect her crewman. STSF_BluRox: Again, my apologies Admiral. Let me go talk with the engineer, if she agrees to apologize to you and act in a civil manner, may I have her released to me? Randy Calvert: I'm fine with that. It will close out both matters and we can move on. August Jax Robinson: :::Looks at Rue::: you haven't known me long enough to judge my temper... but know this, I am not going to let anyone on my ship to get blamed for a mission eight other people were on STSF_BluRox: Aye sir. Let me do that and then see Lt Medley. if we wrap this up, perhaps we can still meet for a late dinner after it's over. Randy Calvert: Maybe she should have been assigned to your helmsman's defense team. She seems like she could have potentially lit a fire under the entire team. STSF_BluRox: If I may be excused sir? August Jax Robinson: We are a team, you can't put all the blame on one person Randy Calvert: Of course... :::raises his glass a moment before taking in the contents::: Randy Calvert: Good luck. STSF_BluRox: :: grins at his statement:: She would have been good, she doesn't put up with inefficiency STSF_BluRox: Thank you sir. Rue Wydown: Well, I understand that. But it's the tone I'm worried about. August Jax Robinson: if you can just stand by and let her take the blame... then you know where the door is August Jax Robinson: I'm worried about you, just standing by and giving up Heather Jamieson: :: finishing up her food, Looking at Kasuga :: August Jax Robinson: you are second chair.... how can you just sit there/? Jas: Jas> ::Polishes off his food and continues on reading through medical logs:: STSF_BluRox: :: turns to exit :: Thank you again Randy.... STSF Seiben: ::looks back at Heather, having also finished her food:: Not bad. STSF_BluRox: :: exits and heads down to the brig, while also calling Lt Medley:: Heather Jamieson: Last meal? STSF Seiben: Seiben> The fried chicken was nice. STSF Seiben: Kasuga> Er, I hope not. Heather Jamieson: It's replicated. STSF_BluRox: +Lt Medley+ If you have a few moment I'd like to meet with you in about 10 minutes to discuss a possible plea bargin:: STSF Seiben: Seiben> Yeah, not quite the real thing, but still. STSF_BluRox: :: enters lift:: Brig level Rue Wydown: It's funny. You're the first one to ask me that. That assumption. Hmmm....::shakes her head:: August Jax Robinson: What is wrong with you? STSF Seiben: Kasuga> ::to Seiben:: Do I know you.. you look familiar? STSF_BluRox: ::enters Brig, and see's' the guard:: Excuse me. I'm looking for a Commander Robinson August Jax Robinson: do you really not give a crap about anyone but yourself?! STSF Seiben: Seiben> I am a Seiben. We are many. STSF_BluRox: (Seiben's are all clones) Jas: Brig Guard> Yes, ma'am, she's right this way. ::Steps away from his position and leads the way down the hall:: STSF Seiben: (probably lol) August Jax Robinson: o.0 STSF_BluRox: Thank you. I hope she's not been too much trouble Jas: Brig Guard> ::Bites his tongue:: Rue Wydown: Robinson, I might not react the same as you do, but that doesn't mean I don't care about the crew. STSF_BluRox: :: sees Wydown ahead:: Commander Wydown....Commander Jax August Jax Robinson: Pardon me Rue, I would like to go back to banging my head on the walll Rue Wydown: Lt Medley + Admiral BluRox+ We'll be available when you are ready. August Jax Robinson: ::Crosses her arms:: Admiral, Sir... it is good to see a friendly face Rue Wydown: ::sighs:: Jas: Brig Guard> ::Briefly nods to Blu, Rue, and Jax, then makes his way back down the corridor:: STSF_BluRox: +Lt Medley_ Thank you, I'll be by soon STSF_BluRox: (Later Admiral, will see you next week) STSF_BluRox: :: not sure she's looking too friendly at the moment with her ears pinned back to her head, obviously unhappy:: Heather Jamieson: :: gets ready to go back :: STSF_BluRox: August...What do you think you were doing? I already have one court case to deal with, and now I find you in here, after being accused of insubordination and threats to a flag officer. What were you thinking? STSF Seiben: ::disposes of her containers:: STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::Ready to go back as well:: Ready to go back when you are ::to Heather:: Rue Wydown: ::shifts her lean, watching again:: STSF Seiben: S> Goodluck, yeah? August Jax Robinson: I was thinking that everyone is letting Kasuga take the heat for all of us STSF_BluRox: Actually, no. While you've been down here, your report has been taken out of context and blame was been thrown not only at STSF_BluRox: Ayumu, but at Wydown, Jamieson, Nickles, a few unnamed Lt's to be named later, and even myself STSF_BluRox: I need you to work with me here. August Jax Robinson: has everyone lost their minds on this planet?! Rue Wydown: Wait, I thought that's what a defense was supposed to do? STSF_BluRox: While I have to prosecute the case, I don't have to agree with what I'm doing. I am also trying to offer a the defense a plea deal, to make the sentence less harsh Jas: Jas> ::Peers closer at PADD:: That...how does that even end up in a body? Hmph. STSF_BluRox: What exactly, did you say to the Admiral? And why? STSF_BluRox: I've heard it from him, I want to know your reasons STSF_BluRox: TWO MINUTE WARNING STSF_BluRox: TWO MINUTE WANRING August Jax Robinson: does it really matter at this point? STSF_BluRox: :: Pulls out a padd and starts typing something on it concerning Ayumu and the case, and waves for the guard to come back August Jax Robinson: I was rude, loud and totally right in doing so STSF_BluRox: ::turns to Jax:: Yes, it does matter. Because I am trying to get you out of here, and you were wrong to confront the Admiral as you did. Jas: Brig Guard> ::Briskly strides over:: Rue Wydown: ::rubs her forehead:: I'm surprised there's no firing squad lined up. STSF_BluRox: I need you to come with me and formally apologize to him for your behavior August Jax Robinson: WHAT!!?! August Jax Robinson: NO!! STSF_BluRox: ::turns to Rue:: Luckily, he's an old friend of mine, and he's willing to drop any charges if.... STSF_BluRox: :: hears Jax go off again:: Rue Wydown: ::rather embarrassed because of the outburst:: STSF_BluRox: :: turns and hisses loudly in her face:: Hssssssssss!!!!! You will be silent and at attention immediately!!! Jas: Brig Guards> ::Stands there awkwardly:: Jas: ((Guard*)) STSF Seiben: Kassuga and Seiben> ::both drinking pop:: STSF_BluRox: :: turns to the brig Guard:: Will you please have this padd delivered to Lt Medley at once, it's very important August Jax Robinson: ::Kicks the chair in her cell::: Rue Wydown: ::scratches the back of her head:: STSF_BluRox: :: turns back to Jax:: then turns to Rue. It seems, that she needs a bit more time to herself to calm down. Jas: Brig Guard> ::Eyes Jax warily before taking the PADD:: Yes, of course. August Jax Robinson: Bull!! nothing is going to calm me down STSF_BluRox: August, let the guard know when you are ready to talk in a civilized manner. Until then, I have other things to attend to. Good day Jas: Brig Guard> ::Turns and heads back down the corridor:: +OPS+ Can I get a location on Lieutenant Medley? STSF_BluRox: Rue, you are with me please. Lt Commander Jax needs a bit of time to ponder her situation August Jax Robinson: I am NOT apologizing Rue Wydown: OPS>+Brig Guard+ Lt Medley is in the JAG Corps office. Rue Wydown: (w)Maybe some chocolate would help? ::stepping away from the brig:: STSF_BluRox: :: turns back to Jax:: If you know what's good for you, you will think about changing your mind. Jas: Brig Guard> +OPS+ Roger that. ::Makes his way to the turbo lift and on to the JAG Corps:: August Jax Robinson: ::Turns around and faces the back wall:: STSF_BluRox: This is a rank matter, a flag officer as well. And...a personal friend. I have you a choice that would have had you out. However, you need to think about this while the rest of the crew will get shore leave. STSF_BluRox: Rue, Commander Robinson is hereby demoted to the rank of Lt Commander STSF_BluRox: Let her stew on that. Let's go see Lt Medley STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM STSF Seiben: ::Paused:: Jas: ::paused:: STSF Seiben: oooo August Jax Robinson: ::Paused:: STSF_BluRox: Sorry we ran over, was trying to scrunch in the brig and medley meeting, we'll start early with it next week and try to wrap this up so the admiral can get some shuteye between work and work STSF Seiben: Cool Rue Wydown: STSF_BluRox: So, thanks for hanging, and if you have nothing to add Rue, Crew Dismissed Rue Wydown: Have a good night guys Heather Jamieson: Night all STSF Seiben: Goodnight!

  10. USS REPUBLIC MISSION BRIEFING 51708.07 - SEASON 25 Ayumu's trial is in recess while BluRox has requested time to go confer with her Chief Engineer, who is not present currently in the courtroom, and has just received a note from Nickles, that her 2XO is currently locked up in the station brig, Having sent Heather to also inquire when Nickles never returned, she's seen Heather return, and Rue leave as well......what the heck is going on down there!? BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM Jas: ::Intently watching the trial proceedings:: STSF_BluRox: :: Stands and watches as Calvert turns and leaves, his assistant handing him several padds that needed his attention now that he as on a break:: Jas: Brig Guard> ::Trying to retain his sanity:: STSF_BluRox: :: turns and finds only Heather, Jas and another officer sitting there, everyone else having left::: Rue Wydown: Rue>::has made it to the brig, unaware that there's now a recess because she's trying to make sense of what Heather was telling her:: Heather Jamieson: :: Sitting :: Rue Wydown: Rue>::looking at the guard:: Well, you look like you've had a rough time of it. What's going on? Jas: ((I clearly skimmed over the briefing...)) STSF_BluRox: :: walks over to Heather now that Ayumu has been drawn aside with Lt Medley, and it not being proper for her to talk to Ayumu anyway at this time..... Heather Jamieson: Admiral... Jas: Brig Guard> ::Nods his head towards the cells:: Unruly detainee. STSF_BluRox: Jamieson.....I hope that you at least have an answer for me....as I didn't get one from Nickles concerning my chief engineer... Heather Jamieson: I went to visit her in the brig here, but she was not forthcoming. I think she may have said something to Calvert. STSF_BluRox: :: wonders if she should take this private, not knowing the other sitting there, though, he looks strangely like one of her former helmsmen Heather Jamieson: I'm guessing Jax put her personal spin on things and got in trouble. Rue Wydown: Rue>Oh yeah? STSF_BluRox: Calvert? Do you mean, 'the Admiral”? Heather Jamieson: Yes, tired. Did not want to mean the other Admiral, you...Admiral. Jas: Brig Guard> ::Narrows eyes:: Yeah. STSF_BluRox: :: sighs to herself :: Calvert was going to chew her a new one if her crew kept acting like this. STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::doesn't say much but listens:: Heather Jamieson: This has been a bad day Admiral. Jas: ::slowly starts to doze off in the courtroom:: Rue Wydown: Rue>::leans against the desk:: Like how unruly? STSF_BluRox: What I am getting at Lt....is his rank is Admiral Calvert....you just refered to him as 'Calvert', it is not appropriate, and I hope if you are called to the stand, that you do not act with so little respect. If Jax did indeed do something similar, then I'm sure the admiral had good reason for sending her down Jas: Brig Guard> ::Lets out a sigh:: Like unruly for the sake of being unruly. Heather Jamieson: It was not intentional Admiral. Rue Wydown: Rue> So what's brought her down here? Jas: Brig Guard> ::Leans back against the wall:: In mild terms, she told Admiral Calvert what's what. Rue Wydown: Rue>::winces:: How long is the Admiral expecting to keep her down here? STSF_BluRox: ::sighs:: Of course not, everyone is just tired and stressed. Look. why don't you go get some chow for yourself, and take some down to Ayumu and Lt Medley if she's hungry as well. :: turns to the other there...

Heather Jamieson: There it is... could be a bunch of replicators though. STSF Seiben: I believe it is. ::follows Heather to the food court:: There's a great place that sells some good steak and burgers, if people are into that. Rue Wydown: Rue> I've served with her for the past year, I highly recommend it. STSF Seiben: ^ Seiben Heather Jamieson: Replicated I hope. STSF Seiben: I think so. I doubt they keep cows in here. Heather Jamieson: I wonder what Kasuga would like... chicken? :: starts to laugh :: Oh I should not laugh. :: giggle :: Jas: Brig Guard> ::Quirks an eyebrow:: Is that right? STSF Seiben: ::shrugs:: Not sure. It seems pretty bad though.

Heather Jamieson: I'm getting to go meals... Heather Jamieson: They are simulated.. just like if I dye my hair.. it's never quite right.

Rue Wydown: Rue> Yeah, about that.... ::makes sure she has something between herself and Blu's claws:: Jax sort of met with the Admiral and somehow, but the end of that meeting ended up in the brig. I can draw a conclusion on why... STSF_BluRox: Ah!! They did have waffles! Excellent Jas: ::Mutters:: Better than administrative... STSF_BluRox: Funny Rue....seriously.....what did she do? STSF_BluRox: :: watching Rue's face:: STSF_BluRox: Oh.....bloody blue blazes...... Heather Jamieson: Kas... any news? STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::eats his chow mein with his chopsticks:: Rue Wydown: Rue> She gave the Admiral the "what for" according the brig guard. Apparentlly there's plans for a second hearing after this one. STSF Seiben: Ayumu> We're looking over the evidence and Jax's engineering logs, as well as repair logs. Hopefully we can be able to back up our defense case. Rue Wydown: Admin>I heard that. ::purposely makes a typo to make the new assignment much more painful, like assigning his quarters in the most obnixious part of the ship:: Jas: ::Looks up towards ceiling:: No clue what you're talking about. Heather Jamieson: Many pieces... STSF Seiben: Many many. STSF_BluRox: What the...??! Is she insane? And this....will absolutely not put him in an altruistic mood. He had been willing to overlook some procedural deficiencies, due to the mission we had just been on, it's success and the high stress level....but this...... we may end up losing two officers if we don't nip this in the bud. Rue Wydown: Admin>::hands the PADD over:: Report to Admiral BluRox and Cmdr Wydown after the Ayumu hearing tomorrow afternoon. They'll get you settled. STSF_BluRox: : sighs:: What exactly did Jax have to say for herself when you went to see her Jas: ::Takes PADD, relieved it's finally over:: Thank you! You have a, uh...good day. ::Takes off:: Rue Wydown: Rue> I didn't get a chance to see her. She'd finally fallen asleep therefore the guard was disinclined to waking her up for all the racket she's been making down there. This looks pretty bad Blu. Not only does this impune the credibility of her report, but if she can't get it together, she's going to tank us all. STSF_BluRox: two minute warning Heather Jamieson: Let me know how I can help... Heather Jamieson: But you have my data Rue Wydown: Admin>::smirks, having just assigned the young man to PO duty as well as Medical:: STSF Seiben: Ayumu> You've already been quite helpful, but I have the feeling I could use all the help I can get. STSF_BluRox: I'm on pretty good terms with Admiral Calvert....or I had been before this mess. I'll take the brunt of this. I was supposed to meet him for dinner later anyway. I'll report to him and take the heat for the crew as best I can. Jas: ::Smirks, having finally been rid of the terrible administrator forever...:: STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM STSF Seiben: ::Paused:: Jas: ::paused:: STSF_BluRox: Nice sim everyone. Did a great job filling in holes while we had some folks out tonight. STSF_BluRox: I'll try to see if I can do something with the Admiral if he's got a few,, if not, we'll get back to it in sim next week STSF_BluRox: Rue, do you have anything for the crew? Rue Wydown: Nope. good job guys STSF_BluRox: Seiben, it might be next year before you actually get you abord STSF_BluRox: LOL..I almost wrote Beiber STSF_BluRox: (both canadian....lol) STSF Seiben: lol Heather Jamieson: I'm off... back to new work STSF Seiben: Both also have nice hair too Heather Jamieson: Night all STSF Seiben: Goodnight everyone Rue Wydown: Night guys Jas: G'night folks! STSF_BluRox: Crew Dismissed
  11. USS Republic Mission Briefing 51707.17 - Season 25 The hearing of Lt Ayumu Kasuga continues aboard the station, with Admiral Calvert presiding, Blu prosecuting and Lt Medley defending. Meanwhile, Jax has gotten herself thrown in the brig for insubordination. BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM Heather Jamieson: :: Sitting in the court room :: Jas: :: Intently observes the trial proceedings :: August Jax Robinson::: Paces in the Brig, cursing all the heck:: STSF Seiben: Seiben>:: observes as well, wishes he had something to drink:: August Jax Robinson: *All to Heck! Randy Calvert:::: waiting for the question to be rephrased::: Heather Jamieson: :: Sitting next to that Seiben person :: Rue Wydown: Lt Medley>:: waiting as well:: STSF Seiben::: ponders:: STSF_BluRox: Lt Ayumu, did Lt Wydown take a rest period upon returning to the Republic? August Jax Robinson::: Yells:: HEY! someone call BluRox NOW! STSF_BluRox: (Commander, not Lt) STSF Seiben: No, sir. She returned to duty after the mission. STSF_BluRox: (Jas...talk to your prisoner there) STSF_BluRox: And she was on duty when this error was noted? STSF Seiben: Yes, she was/ Jas: Brig Guard> :: Looks over to cell:: What is it? August Jax Robinson::: Keeps Yelling::: HELLO?! ID THERE ANYONE HERE?! August Jax Robinson: I want to talk to my Commanding officer NOW Jas: Brig Guard> You don't need to yell!! August Jax Robinson: TRY AND STOP ME STSF_BluRox: Lt Ayumu. I thought in your earlier testimony, that it was noted and in the copy of the logs I have reviewed, that Lt Commander Jamieson was on the bridge? August Jax Robinson: ADMIRAL BLUROX!! August Jax Robinson: HELLLLLLOOOOO STSF_BluRox: (Christina had just left you Jax) August Jax Robinson: Someone should slap her:: Heather Jamieson: :: Heard her name :: STSF_BluRox: Lt Ayumu, would you please clarify your statement Rue Wydown: Rue>::watching this, wondering which side Blu is on, glances at some of the other crew members present:: STSF Seiben: She was. Lt. Jamieson had the bridge, I believe Commander Wydown went to the sickbay to see you. But technically she was still on duty at the time. Jas: Brig Guard> :: Glares at Jax for a moment :: She's currently preoccupied with a trial, ma'am. August Jax Robinson: I need her here August Jax Robinson: like now... NOW NOW Randy Calvert: :::scrolls back though his notes to make sure he's understanding this::: August Jax Robinson: {{::Meow::}} Heather Jamieson: :: Is a bit tired, leans against Sieben unknowingly :: STSF_BluRox: So, Commander Wydown was 'not' on the bridge, but Jamison was. So, after hours of a stressful situation, you are telling me, that nobody took a break? Jas: Brig Guard> :: Takes deep breath of patience :: I'll...have security notify her as soon as she's available. August Jax Robinson: Now sassquash NOW STSF_BluRox: :: Feels her combadge go off, but has it on mute due to being busy at the moment, but not seeing Nickles around, assumes it is her:: August Jax Robinson::: Wonders when she got so demanding?:: STSF Seiben: That's correct, Admiral. We returned to the bridge after the away mission. None of us had a chance to rest after that. August Jax Robinson::: Yells again:: Admiral BluRox!! STSF_BluRox: Why did you relieve the crewmembers that were already on duty, at the time in which they rescued you? Jas: Brig Guard> ::Steps away and comms security for Blu to come to the brig when next convenient:: Please let it be soon... August Jax Robinson: ::Grabs cup and bangs it on the wall... learned it from Will:: Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> ::trying to figure out where this line of questioning is going, because something isn't making sense:: Randy Calvert: (( BluRox's voicemail> Sorry I can't come to the screen right now. Please leave a message after the beep. )) August Jax Robinson: ::Keeps banging her cup:: Hello?! Jas: Brig Guard> ::Checks time, sees end of shift is way off...groans:: Heather Jamieson: :: Thinks...Mmmmm, rest..... :: August Jax Robinson: what's wrong tank? long shift STSF Seiben: ::thinks about her answer:: I should have gone off shift, I admit. But, I felt as though I could continue with my duties. Admittedly, I feel as if I was still high on adrenaline from the rescue mission and wasn't feeling any feelings of fatigue at that time. August Jax Robinson: ::Keeps banging her metal cup on the wall:: BLLLLUUUUROOOOOX Jas: Brig Guard> ::Eye twitch:: Rue Wydown: ((LOL)) Heather Jamieson: :: Looks around :: (w to Sieben) Where's my good friend Jax? ACTION:: Station security comes in, but see's that BluRox is busy but spots some of the other officers from the Republic. Heads over and gives a message to Commander Wydown about Jax. STSF_BluRox: (Rue, sent you a PM) STSF Seiben: Seiben> (w) I don't know. With Will somewhere? Randy Calvert: ((The guards are about to find the sleepy hypos soon too.... )) Rue Wydown: Rue>::reads the PADD, frowns a bit, then reaches over and pinches Heather:: August Jax Robinson: HEY!! STSF_BluRox: Lt Ayumu, Can you tell me if you've had other incidents, when you've not paid attention to your speed? Such as in a wormhole? STSF_BluRox: Or.....while on Shoreleave? Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Objection. Assumes facts not in evidence. Jas: Brig Guard> ....what. STSF_BluRox: Ships records are fact. August Jax Robinson: get my Boss!! Randy Calvert: Overruled. Her record is applicable. August Jax Robinson: I will keep yelling and get more annoying Jas: Brig Guard>:: Pinches bridge of nose:: She's unavailable right now, ma'am. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Yes, but they haven't been entered into evidence Rue Wydown: Rue>:: harsh whisper to Heather:: Go down to the bridge and find out what's going on. August Jax Robinson: I know worse methods Randy Calvert:::: pinches his eyebrow::: I have her record in front of me. Is that evidence enough? August Jax Robinson: I suggest you rethink that Heather Jamieson: :: Nods :: Heather Jamieson: :: Gets up and heads to the bridge :: August Jax Robinson::: starts banging her cup over and over, not stoping:: STSF_BluRox: :: hates doing this, but it's her job to do so. Really wishes Wydown had taken on the defense, as she would have known to look at her service record and would have fought for Ayumu:: Heather Jamieson: :: Asks a guard outside of the trial room :: What is going on that needs Captain Wydown's attention? Randy Calvert:::: waives his hand to continue as he reaches for his glass of water::: Jas: Brig Guard>:: Consults PADD for procedures with unruly prisoners:: Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Just following procedure, sir. If the defendant's record is being questioned, then I want to ensure that the full record is in evidence. August Jax Robinson: NO, We need ADMIRAL BLUROX!!! Randy Calvert: Noted... Admiral, proceed. August Jax Robinson: ::Sings off key, bangs cup off beat as well:: Heather Jamieson: :: Is told there's an issue at the brig :: Heather Jamieson: :: Walks to the brig :: Heather Jamieson: :: to the brig guard :: What is going on here? August Jax Robinson: Heather! get me out of here Jas: Brig Guard>:: Points to Jax without hesitation:: She wants to speak with Admiral BluRox. You talk to her. ::Walks a short distance away:: Heather Jamieson: :: Goes to the brig forcefield edge :: August Jax Robinson: Shoot him and get me out of here Heather Jamieson: Why are you in here? STSF_BluRox: I'd like to note that based on her record, that Lt Ayumu has a record of disregard for her station and has been noted to be wantonly negligent at times. Based on the current case, as well as her record. I believe we have just cause for action in this case. The prosecution rests August Jax Robinson::: Plays dumb:: no clue Heather Jamieson: Then I would be in there. August Jax Robinson: Do your job, protect your crew women! August Jax Robinson: Go get Blu then, she has guts that you don't Heather Jamieson: Really? For all of the times you were merely mean to be. not to mention violent actions taken against me? STSF_BluRox: (that's not my job, that's the first officer's job) Heather Jamieson: *mean to me rather Randy Calvert: Very well. Would the Defense like to make its case? Heather Jamieson: Guard, can you tell me what she is in here for? August Jax Robinson: Shipmates before foe... shoot him or get me Blu Heather Jamieson: Blu is in the middle of the hearing Rue Wydown: Lt Medley>Aye sir. ::standing up:: I'd like to enter into evidence the report from the Chief Engineering Officer. August Jax Robinson: so you don't stand with your ship? August Jax Robinson: you retreat against your own? Heather Jamieson: I swore an oath to defend the UFP, that goes beyond one's ship. August Jax Robinson: Cake Eater.... you have no loyalty to your ship Randy Calvert: Very well... unless there are any objections, this will be marked Defense Exhibit 1 August Jax Robinson: I knew I well a head of time I couldn't trust you Randy Calvert: Proceed. STSF Seiben: (mmm cake) Jas: Jas> ::Wakes up abruptly and not so subtly pretends he didn't doze off for a moment during the hearing:: Heather Jamieson: If you had loyalty you'd probably not be in here in the first place... tell you what. I'll sit with you. :: puls up a chair :: Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Thank you. ::walking over with the PADD with the report to Kasuga:: Ms Kasuga, Can you walk us through a few things here. ::handing her the PaDD:: Now, what's the normal maintenance procedure for your duty station? August Jax Robinson: NO I am here because I was protecting my shipmate, now you are going to let them rail road Kasuga to the Brig for life Jas: Brig Guard> ::Sigh of relief:: August Jax Robinson: you stink STSF Seiben: ::looks at the PADD:: According to normal procedures, duty stations undergo maintenance every 2 or 3 months. Heather Jamieson: Could you have expended your energy in the court room with counter arguments? Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> And when's the last time your station underwent routine maintenance? August Jax Robinson: you stink like a Klingon Bathroom during a Drunken party with a 1000 guest and 1 head for all go them to use!!! August Jax Robinson: ::Goes back to her cup banging:: BLUUUUUUuuuuUUuu Heather Jamieson: You are not a very good prisoner. STSF Seiben: ::ponders:: I believe it was at least 6 months ago/ Jas: Brig Guard> ::Calls over:: Agreed. Heather Jamieson: :: Motions to the guard :: Can the air be removed from the brig? Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> So approximately three months over the normal operating procedure. Was there a reason for that? August Jax Robinson: no I am a sucky prisoner... ::goes back to her cup:: Jas: Brig Guard> ::Eyes Jax:: Well there is sleeping gas... Heather Jamieson: :: nods to the guard :: And we all could use a little rest. August Jax Robinson: that violates my rights August Jax Robinson: I am not hurting anyone! August Jax Robinson: ::Yells::: ADMIRAL BLUROX!!! Heather Jamieson: I can't help you if you don't tell me what got you in there. In fact, even knowing does not mean anyone can get you out Jas: Brig Guard> ::Bluntly:: Then perhaps you should calm down. STSF Seiben: I believe engineering was too busy to conduct maintenance on our duty stations given the complexity of our recent missions. August Jax Robinson: NOOOO Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> So what can happen if a particular area doesn't undergo regular maintenance? Heather Jamieson: They soundproof the door to this place. August Jax Robinson: not your ears STSF_BluRox: (wow, Jax in the brig and they're tossing her under the bus!) STSF Seiben: Well, systems can degrade or malfunction if not properly looked at. Jas: Brig Guard> ::Checks to see if there are sound dampening measures in place:: Heather Jamieson: Guard, who put Jax in here? August Jax Robinson: ::Keeps banging her cup:: HELP ME!! THEY ARE VIOLATING MY RIGHTS Heather Jamieson: I think the line is "Help help, I'm being repressed.." Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Now, walk is through the accident again. You'd just left the other ship, returned to your station and set course for your next destination. Then what? STSF_BluRox: (rofl!) August Jax Robinson: OK then Jas: Brig Guard> ::Looks up at Heather from PADD:: She was brought here by security under orders from Admiral Calvert. Heather Jamieson: Oh, the same one officiating the trial.. perfect. August Jax Robinson: ::yells at the top of her lungs:: HELP HELP I AM BEING REPRESSED!!! August Jax Robinson: SAVE MY CHILDREN! August Jax Robinson: :P Heather Jamieson: I can look after them for you... Jas: Brig Guard> Not without reason, ma'am. August Jax Robinson: I DEMAND TO TESTIFY!! STSF Seiben: I set the speed as ordered and engaged. Normally, if one tries to go over the preset speed limit the computer should either reject the speed as being over or automatically stop acceleration at the prescribed speed limit, much like the cruise control feature or autopilot of a Terran automobile or aircraft. Heather Jamieson: Does Wil like music? I've taken up playing.... August Jax Robinson: I have proof!!! Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> So there was a malfunction. Yes? STSF Seiben: It would seem so, in my opinion. Jas: Brig Guard> If you could please just testify more quietly, Commander. August Jax Robinson: then bring me to the court room!! Heather Jamieson: Let me tell Wydown that you are here.. :: gets up and heads out :: Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> And per the CENG's report, engineering appears to concur. Heather Jamieson: :: reenters the trial room, sits next to the Captain :: Heather Jamieson: (w) Sir. Randy Calvert: ((Isn't it convenient that the Chief Engineer's trial will be shortly after this one? Maybe we can consolidate this?)) Heather Jamieson: (w) Jax is in the brig, won't tell me why, but the Admiral running this trial put her there. August Jax Robinson: {{Sure blame me while you have me locked up!!}} Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Another question, the prosecutor alluded to fatigue playing a factor to the incident. I'm curious, what's the common practice of your senior officers when returning from a stressful mission? STSF Seiben: (such love lol) Heather Jamieson: :: Glances at Seiben :: Randy Calvert: ((With friends like this... who needs an enemy?)) Randy Calvert: ((Take a girl and beat her while she's on the floor.)) STSF Seiben: If you still have time left on your shift, you're still supposed to complete your normal duties. STSF_BluRox: ((Don't make me call Holly in here to call you a liar)) STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::nods back at Heather:: Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Even if you'd just returned from a dangerous mission? Heather Jamieson: (w to Wydown) I'm not sure either you or the Admiral can get her out. Randy Calvert: :::arches a brow;:: Lt... are shifts on Republic extended to multiple days at once? Really? STSF_BluRox: ::waiting to see where this is going before she objects:: Randy Calvert: The report shows the crew were off the ship for a course of three days. August Jax Robinson: ::Starts pacing::: Heather Jamieson: :: Sits with the Captain :: Rue Wydown: Rue>::bows her head, swears in her own language, then waves to Heather to remain seated while she goes down to see what the mess is all about:: Heather Jamieson: :: nods :: Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> And yet, all but the Admiral who was injured returned to their stations immediately upon return to the ship. STSF Seiben: That's right, your honour. Though I can't recall exactly how long I was on duty for that particular day. STSF_BluRox: :: looks across the room, noting first Christina had left, then Heather, now Heather was back, but the first officer Rue was leaving....just what the hell did Jax do?:: Heather Jamieson: :: Sits up as though sitting for two :: August Jax Robinson: ::Fake Faints:: Randy Calvert: So please make your point. The other crew are not facing an inquiry. STSF Seiben: ::to Medley:: Correct. We returned to our shifts after the mission. Rue Wydown: Rue>::enters the brig:: August Jax Robinson: "Ploop"" STSF_BluRox: Admiral...might we ask for a short recess. I'd like to confer with the Chief Engineer, as that's not quite how I had interpreted her report Jas: Brig Guard> ::Watches Jax dramatically fall to the ground:: Jas: Brig Guard> ::Notices Rue and straightens:: Ma'am. Randy Calvert: Granted. We'll adjourn until after lunch at 1300. August Jax Robinson: {{there was no Drama! it was graceful!!}} Jas: ((Not from over here!) STSF_BluRox: Thank you Sir. STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM August Jax Robinson: ::Paused:: Heather Jamieson: Mmmm, lunch Jas: ::paused:: Rue Wydown: Okay guys. Good job tonight. Heather Jamieson: Was fun...to leave her in the klink STSF Seiben: Yes, it was Rue Wydown: I've got to head out for the night, but I'll see you next week I hope. August Jax Robinson: I will get yo back for this Heather!!!!!! STSF Seiben: Oooh! Catfight! Heather Jamieson: Well, it will have to be after lunch at the very least. Jas: Just take it outside the brig! August Jax Robinson: I must run myself, early day tomorrow August Jax Robinson: nite nite Peeps Heather Jamieson: Night all. STSF Seiben: Goodbight! STSF Seiben: Goodnight* Jas: G'night everyone, have a good week. STSF_BluRox: Heather, you just walked out on her! STSF_BluRox: omg STSF_BluRox: Night Jax! STSF Seiben: Heh STSF_BluRox: And you guys..throwing Jax under the bus when she's not here? STSF_BluRox: Her report said no such thing. Basically, it fried you...not sure how your defender was able to spin it her way STSF_BluRox: I may have to call Jax to the stand STSF_BluRox: Jas you did great tonight! STSF_BluRox: Crew Dismissed.
  12. USS REPUBLIC MISSION BRIEFING 51707.24 : Season 25 The crew is aboard the station awaiting to see what happens to Lt Ayumu, at her hearing. The defense has discussed the matter with the defendant, and we are ready to proceed with the trial BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM STSF Seiben: ::with her defense counsel:: STSF_BluRox: (wow Kasuga, your friends have abandoned you!) STSF Seiben: (I know eh) Rue Wydown: Lt Medley>::sitting with her client:: Jas: ::mulling about outside the courtroom:: Randy Calvert: :::looks around at those gathered::: STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::settles back into his seat in the peanut gallery:: Randy Calvert: So we've done this once before. Everyone should be familiar with how this works now. Jas: ::slips into the courtroom quietly and takes a seat at the back:: Rue Wydown: Rue>::also in the peanut gallery, just watching:: Randy Calvert: Would the prosecution like to make their case? STSF_BluRox: :: stands:: Yes sir, we are ready. STSF_BluRox: Today we are here to determine the level of guilt displayed by Lt Ayumu, with her total disregard to Star Fleet Law, Treaty Speed limits that are posted, to those. Endangerment of a sentient spaces that has recently been discovered that has been harmed by the spacial rifts caused by careless speeding, and total disregard for the warnings for which we had been setting up as the offense occurred. Failure to comply with a direct order, and multiple instances of insubordination Randy Calvert: :::notes the dropping of postal fraud charge and wonders if the defense had talked it down::: Randy Calvert: Defense? How do you plead to said charges? Randy Calvert: :::Turns slightly giving Ayumu his undivided attention::: STSF Seiben: I'd like to amend my original plea to not guilty, your honour. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> ::nods to Kasuga after her plea:: STSF_BluRox: ::looks over at Ayumu, sort of relieved, but not able to show it:: Randy Calvert: Your not guilty plea is accepted by the court and is noted. Christina_Nickles: :: sighs hearing all of the charges:: Randy Calvert: Alright... it's the prosecution's turn to make it's case. Jas: ::stifles a generic courtroom cough:: STSF_BluRox: I'd like to call Lt Ayumu Kasuga to the stand STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::rubs his chin:: (w) At least they dropped the postal fraud charge. Randy Calvert: :::nods to BluRox indicating the floor is hers::: STSF Seiben: ::nods and heads to the stand:: Rue Wydown: Rue> ::feels somewhat bad for Kasuga, although she's still not happy with her:: Randy Calvert: Guard> :::motions to Ayumu as she approaches::: Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? Randy Calvert: (And no alternate truths please.) STSF Seiben: I do. Randy Calvert: Be seated. STSF Seiben: ::Takes her seat:: STSF_BluRox: ::hands Christina a note as she passes:: Rue Wydown: ((What's the fun in that?)) Christina_Nickles: :: takes the note and moves to the door to stand guard:: STSF_BluRox: Lt Ayumu Kasuga...... would you tell the court your full name, rank and position on the Republic STSF Seiben: My name is Lt. Ayumu Kasuga, I'm the Helm and Operations officer. Christina_Nickles: :: opens the note and reads it:: ACTION: Note: Please go find out why Jax has been thrown into the brig and report back to me. STSF Seiben: Seiben> (vq) Figures.. STSF_BluRox: And how long have you held that post? Christina_Nickles: :: looks to Blu then exits the court room to find the answer:: Rue Wydown: Rue>::has noticed that both Heather and Jax have seemed to have disappeared and wonders why:: STSF Seiben: About 2 years now. (IIRC) Jas: ::eyes Christina leaving the room before turning attention back to the proceedings:: STSF_BluRox: And any previous related positions? Christina_Nickles: :: makes her way back down to the brig:: STSF Seiben: I had a few temporary postings, but no sir. I joined the Republic soon after my graduation from Academy. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> ::scribbles on her PaDD:: STSF_BluRox: And would you say, that you are familiar with Star Fleet regulations and orders that pertain to your position? STSF Seiben: Yes sir. I would say that I am. STSF_BluRox: Specifically, with regards to those areas of space, that have an imposed warp speed limit? Christina_Nickles: :: enters the brig looking for Jax:: STSF Seiben: Cardboard Jax> ::propped up in the corner of the brig, playing a cardboard harmonica:: Rue Wydown: ((I would have expected her to be banging her cup on the forcefield)) STSF Seiben: (that too) Jas: (*cardboard cup) STSF Seiben: Yes sir. Rue Wydown: (("Nobody knows the trouble I've seen....")) Christina_Nickles: ;: finds Jax cell: Commander? What happened? Why are you in the brig? STSF_BluRox: (Jas) you can be the brig guard for now Randy Calvert: ((I would have guessed she was singing We Shall Be Free)) STSF_BluRox: ((Jas..see your IM) Jas: Brig Guard> ::looks Christina up and down from post:: Excuse me, ma'am. Christina_Nickles: ::turns to the guard::: Hello again Christina_Nickles: :: oints to Jax since shes not talking to her:: What did she do? STSF_BluRox: So, for the record. The ship you were in, was in an area that was limited to no more than Warp 3, due to the significant previous damage from a other freighters that had been in the area. Including the one that you had been on for some time? Jas: Brig Guard> ::straight-faced, to the point:: She has been charged with Gross Insubordination, under orders from Admiral Calvert. Is there a reason you're down here, ma'am? STSF Seiben: That is correct, sir. STSF_BluRox: And knowing that you were in this damaged area of space, you then proceeded at Warp 8, in an area that had been already limited to Warp 3, and due to the events of the freighter which your team got destroyed........Why did you proceed at Warp 8, for 20 minutes? STSF_BluRox: Records showed that you had been asked the time to you next location, and then when Lt Jamieson asked how long would it be, only then, did someone notice how fast you were going? STSF_BluRox: You do know the difference between 3 and 8? STSF_BluRox: Do you not? Christina_Nickles: I’m here looking for her. Insubordination?? What the neck did she do? Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Objection. Argumentative. STSF Seiben: I do know the difference sir. STSF Seiben: ::clams up and lets her counsel do her job:: Randy Calvert: Sustained. Restate your question. Jas: Brig Guard> I'm not at liberty to say. However, unless you have express permission to be down here, I'm going to have to ask you to vacate the premises. STSF_BluRox: Lt Kasuga.... The ship was traveling at Warp 8. Correct? The limit was Warp 3. Correct? Tell me, why was the ship traveling at 'any' speed above Warp 3? Christina_Nickles: I did have orders to find out what she was being held for :: Hold up the note:: From another Admiral Christina_Nickles: What did she do to get that charge? STSF Seiben: I was of course aware of the limit, and it wasn't intentional. I entered the speed in the navigational computer at the limit. The speed was supposed to be locked at warp 3, but went above to warp 8 without my knowledge. The computer's safety protocols cut warp speed before I realized the discrepancy of the speed. Jas: Brig Guard> ::eyes note warily before lowering his voice:: You didn't hear this from me...but she barged into the Admiral's office on a warpath. I don't know the exact details, but I know words were...exchanged. STSF_BluRox: And Lt Kasuga, who enters that information? Are you not the Helmsman? If there were an error, would that not have come from your negligence? STSF_BluRox: Lt Kasuga, how many hours had you been awake and on duty? Christina_Nickles: ::looks to Jax in the Cell:: Dangit Sir! ::sighs:: Any chance you would be willing to let her out on her own recognizance?? STSF Seiben: Yes sir, I am. It's one of my duties to ensure the proper speed is entered. I was on duty that day for 14 hours, if I remember correctly. I started my shift on the bridge as normal, then was called on an away mission to the freighter to help effect your rescue Admiral, then returned to the bridge to helm. Jas: Brig Guard> I'm afraid I can't oblige. The Admiral may decide on a second court martial. STSF_BluRox: And at that time, did others that had been on the mission, Commander Wydown being one of those, take a break and time off duty? If you were too tired to know the speed, then please tell the court why you should be piloting the ship and responsible for the lives of that many crew? STSF_BluRox: Instead of taking a rest session yourself? Christina_Nickles: Alright. I have to go report this to Admiral Blurox ...she’s not going to be happy. Thank you for your time. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Objection. Again Argumentative. STSF_BluRox: :: looks over at Medley, glad that she's seemed to wake up:: Randy Calvert: Sustained. Please restate the question... PAUSE SIM PAUSE SIM PAUSE SIM STSF_BluRox: Ok...I'll restate that next week STSF_BluRox: You've got a week to think of a good answer Ayumu STSF Seiben: Yay Rue Wydown: Gotta head out guys. I'll see you next week. Jas: Have a good week, Rue! STSF_BluRox: And I'll try to get a hold of Jax. I'd really hate to have 2 trials this week STSF Seiben: lol Christina_Nickles: lol Jas: You may just have to walk out with a cardboard cutout Jax under one arm. STSF_BluRox: And welcome back Jas, thank you for filling in our NPC for us tonight. You can continue to stymie poor Christina next week if you wish STSF_BluRox: and on that note....Crew Dismissed. Go get some sleep people STSF Seiben: Goodnight! Christina_Nickles: night all Jas: Thanks, Blu, good to be back.

USS REPUBLIC MISSION BRIEFING 51707.03 - SEASON 25 The trial had taken a recess to allow the defense team ample time to prepare to defend the client, and to be sure that Ms. Kasuga fully understood the implications if she decided to stand fast to her guilty plea. Blu had sent a copy of the report that Jax had prepared to the defense team, to help them prepare. Ayumu, was one of her crew, she had to make sure that she was at least properly defended. STSF_BluRox: BEGIN SIM STSF_BluRox: BEGIN SIM STSF_BluRox: BEGIN SIM Rue Wydown: Lt Medley>::wrapping up her notes with her client:: STSF_BluRox: :: Had left Admiral's office earlier and had spoken with Jax, but was still unhappy to be having to put her own crewman under such an ordeal:: STSF Seiben: ::thinking about what was said and all:: Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Just one last question. If a plea bargain was offered. Would you take it? And what would you plea to? STSF Seiben: Like a reduced sentence, or jail time commuted? I might plead to the latter. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Not exactly. ::not sure if the woman really understands how a court martial works:: I've got a couple of officers to speak to, so I'm going to leave you to thing about what information you want to present at the inquiry and Ill be back shortly STSF_BluRox: :: was hoping Jax would report back to her after her meeting, but figured she was upset. Decides to go catch up with Rue and see if she had any thoughts on it STSF Seiben: ::never been in a court, so yes that’s correct:: Very well, thanks. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley.>::nods and picks up her things and exits the conference room to make a few more inquiries for her client:: Heather Jamieson: :: Sitting where she has for the entire event :: Heather Jamieson: (wait, something is messed up, let me reload) STSF Seiben: ::going over her notes and such"" Heather Jamieson: :: Looks at Kasuga :: Heather Jamieson: What's going on? Suppose you can't say. Rue Wydown: ::finishing up a message to her husband while making notes on her PADD in a quiet corner, waiting for this circus to start again:: STSF Seiben: ::sighs:: Well, can't say much but at least I feel a little better about it. Christina_Nickles: :: standing guard at the door Ayumu and Medley are, hoping for the best for Ayumu:: Heather Jamieson: Something was wrong with the system that was supposed to limit the warp factor in that region of space. STSF Seiben: ::nods:: Yes, it seems the auto pilot did not kick in at warp 5 as it was supposed to. Heather Jamieson: I'm still working on a solution to undo some level of the subspace damage. STSF Seiben: That's good. Did you hear anything about the entity? I don't think it's too happy now. Heather Jamieson: I looked at the propulsion log, it went right through warp 5 with no indication of a mechanism halting it there. Heather Jamieson: I did not hear anything, but contact has to be fairly close. STSF Seiben: But it was supposed to. I wonder why it didn't stop there Heather Jamieson: I'm thinking either a flaw in the buoy system or something on the Republic. STSF_BluRox: + Rue+ Are you available to talk? STSF Seiben: Hmm. Did you or anyone speak with Jax about it? STSF Seiben: anyome* Heather Jamieson: I mean, I suppose you should not have entered that factor of eight into the helm. Heather Jamieson: Not a lot no. :: laughs :: It's not like Jax an I are anything more than shipmates, and that's even stretching it. Rue Wydown: +BluRox+ Sure, Admiral. I'm down the corridor from the hearing room. Third viewport from the left. Heather Jamieson: I' STSF Seiben: Yes, I was tired and on shift far too long. Heather Jamieson: I'm sorry I did not notice it sooner, though Rue did not see it either. I only got lucky because I asked. STSF Seiben: :nods:: Given what we went through during the rescue mission, I suppose that was the last thing on everyone's mind. I admit, I still had a lot of adrenaline in me after the mission. Heather Jamieson: And the drop out of warp... entirely too sudden. I think we could have coasted out of the warp field rather than altering the field itself to slow down, but I'm a cartographer, not an engineer. STSF Seiben: ::nods:: I agree. Heather Jamieson: There are more questions than answers. STSF Seiben: That's the problem. Will we ever know all the answers? STSF_BluRox: (I see Heather is still trying to blame Rue?) STSF_BluRox: :: heads down to meet with Rue:: STSF Seiben: (lol) Heather Jamieson: :: Is visibly upset :: I suppose not. STSF Seiben: It's lucky for you, it's only me on trial here. Rue Wydown: ((Heather apparently likes being in the dog house.)) Heather Jamieson: I bet something will happen to me Kasuga. Heather Jamieson: (Oh it's more nuanced than that) STSF Seiben: Though nothing as severe. STSF Seiben: Or so I hope. STSF_BluRox: ::pokes head in:: Rue? STSF_BluRox: (Christina, you can go in and talk with them, they are trying to talk Ayumu not to plead guilty) Heather Jamieson: I think a holodeck recreation of events could help, a better timeline. Rue Wydown: ::closing her PADD up:: Hi Admiral. ::doing her usual toothy grin:: STSF Seiben: It might I suppose, but would we have time to do that? Christina_Nickles: ((that’s why Christina is staying out of it she doesn’t want ANY Part of the blame this time LOL)) STSF_BluRox: rofl!! STSF Seiben: (lol, I can feel the love) Heather Jamieson: I mean, if you entered in warp factor 8 it is one thing, but even if you did there were other factors that should have prevented the subspacial damage. STSF_BluRox: Hi Rue. I hate having to deal with this Heather Jamieson: Besides, if the subspace damage was really this serious we should have never gone to warp at all, even warp 1. STSF Seiben: Especially given that the warp 5 limit was in place. The computers should have overridden my commands and limited the speed to warp 5, or rejected the warp 8 speed and not moved at all. Rue Wydown: I can only imagine. STSF_BluRox: She is one of my crew, but I also have to do my duty, the Admiral requested it. STSF Seiben: ::nods:: Yes, should've gone out at impulse. But hindsight is 50/50. Heather Jamieson: People worry about warp within a star system way to much frankly. STSF Seiben: Yeah, used properly warp travel is super safe and efficient. Christina_Nickles: :: decides to check on the two:: and turns, opening the door, stepping inside:: Ayumu I couldnt stand by any more. There is in no way that you should plead guilty. Rue Wydown: Why didn't you take the role of defense counsel? ::raises a brow:: STSF_BluRox: I do wish you had taken the defender position. I'd have more faith in you knowing her, and her capabilities, than this young Lt. I can't believe that she let Kasuga plead guilty to all charges STSF_BluRox: I was assigned. He had also requested you, but you gave good reason to decline. I've heard your name mentioned a few times as part of the defense. You may wish to speak with the Lt yourself Christina_Nickles: ((test)) STSF_BluRox: You pass Christina_Nickles: ((Thanks)) Heather Jamieson: I don't know anyway to get you out of this... :: looks at the floor :: STSF Seiben: ::Looks over at Christina:: Yeah, I'm no longer considering pleading guilty. I think I was just really tired and let my emotions get the better of me. Rue Wydown: You could have argued to be the defense. You'd have done a better job, I think, than prosecution. Not only do you know your crew member the best, by being a bit removed from the situation you could have been a bit more objectively. Taking over the prosecution puts you in a very difficult situation and the question of that conflict could be construed as leniency on your part. But then again, this is your case. What's done is done. STSF Seiben: We were all pretty exhausted and worked much longer than we should've. Christina_Nickles: Thank goodness, and I agree We are all tired. Now we need to find a way to get you off the hook. STSF Seiben: Hopefully Jax's report will help... and that the judge is a lenient guy. But, I don't know anything about this guy. Rue Wydown: In the meantime, i doubt I'd be the best person to call for the defense. Not only am I not appropriate to be her defense counsel, I'm not one to give mercy against what I see gross misconduct. STSF_BluRox: Well, I'm serious about you also talking to the Jag officer. Christina_Nickles: Nor do I I’m sorrry to say. STSF_BluRox: Typically, in these types of trials, the first officer is the one to defend the crew. Main since you are in charge of crew conduct and discipline, but what is done is done. STSF Seiben: Well, we'll give it our best and we'll see what happens. I'm ready to accept whatever they give me. Rue Wydown: Hence why I brought the charges. Shouldn't you prep me or the other witnesses for our testimony? Heather Jamieson: :: Sits with Kasuga :: Christina_Nickles: How do you plan on clearing yourself? STSF_BluRox: Yes, I had Jax prepare a full report. I'll see to it that you receive a copy of it as well. STSF Seiben: By presenting the facts we mentioned, I'm no lawyer so I'm not sure how well it'll go though. STSF_BluRox: What does not help is this is not the first time Ms Kasuga has had issue with speed. but we'll get to that. Rue Wydown: It's not the first time this has happened? STSF_BluRox: Well, first time I know of in space. The previous instance was planetside, where an incident took place, some sort of sacred avian species was killed. STSF_BluRox: But, what I've heard mentioned, besides that the away team members reported back to the bridge, when they should have rested. I've heard it said that you had not noticed how fast she was going either, and that may be part of their defense. Christina_Nickles: I just hope it works. Rue Wydown: Tell me, would you have noticed how fast she was going? Or would you have trusted her to do her job? STSF Seiben: You and me both. Heather Jamieson: What will you do out of fleet, if it comes to that? STSF_BluRox: I've not heard that Rue, just some rumors that were whispered that Jax picked up in her report. STSF_BluRox: I have her looking into it. Rue Wydown: But you didn't answer my question. ::tilts her head;: I'm curious. What would you have done? STSF_BluRox: At some point, I would have asked for a status report, otherwise, they should be able to do their jobs. STSF Seiben: Depends on the outcome. If I'm discharged and lose my helm certification, then maybe I'll just settle back home and relax. I'm hopeful I won't get too much jail time. If I'm lucky and somehow get to keep my helm license then maybe I'll transfer to a freighter crew or a less intense science vessel or something. STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM STSF Seiben: ::Paused:: STSF_BluRox: Ok, well I hope you got your stories straight, and next week the Judge will be here with us STSF_BluRox: (technically has been on the phone while driving so sorta here...lol)
  14. USS REPUBLIC MISSION BRIEFING 51706.26 - SEASON 25 After hearing Ayumu's guilty plea, Blu asked Admiral Calvert for both she and Lt Medley to approach the bench and discuss briefly Ayumu and if she fully understood her plea. Calvert granted Lt Medley some time to meet with Ayumy and discuss the case more first while Blu handed Medley the case file she was using that Jax had complied for her. BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM STSF Seiben: ::feeling better after she had a chance to speak with Medley and had some time to think things through:: Rue Wydown: Lt. Medley > so what else do you think I need to know to defend you? STSF_BluRox: :: Having left the admiral's ready room, heads back to see if she can find Jax:: Heather Jamieson: :: sitting with others :: STSF_BluRox: (maybe that she's wanted on some planet for killing their one of their gods, and we stole her back before they could put her to death?) August Jax Robinson: ::Pacing in the hallway outride of Court, while there is a break - Stressing:: STSF_BluRox: :: sees Jax:: August.....with me please..... August Jax Robinson: {{Nooo, don't tell them that!!}} August Jax Robinson: ::Hurries over to Blu:: Yes Admiral STSF_BluRox: (it may come up) August Jax Robinson: {{noooooooooooooooooooooo}} STSF_BluRox: August...let's go do the small conference room down the hall here. I want to talk to you before we re-convene, and get your thoughts on a few items Rue Wydown: Lt. Melody > ::drumming her stylus on the table as she waits for her clients answer:; Rue Wydown: ( which better be epic considering STSF Seiben: Well, I'm wanted on an cloaked planet for accidentally killing one of their sacred birds, and escaped a death sentence when my crew beamed me out just before it was carried out, or the time me and a few other crewmen colored our skin green to pose as Orions, or the time I went undercover to catch those who stolen stuff from a planet that mutated our last XO... August Jax Robinson: ::opens the old fashion door for Blu::: STSF Seiben: well, to help catch them. It obviously wasn't just me STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::drinking a can of juice next to Heather:: STSF_BluRox: Thank you August. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> I mean for the current charges. Not for your past crimes. I'm beginning to worry about this STSF_BluRox: :: moves across the room and takes a seat, motioning for August to take one as well STSF Seiben: Oh. Well, like I mentioned before I'm not sure why failsafe’s kicked in earlier. August Jax Robinson: ::takes a seat:: I feel like she is giving up by pleading guilty ::tears up:: I don't know what to do to help her Rue Wydown: Lt> Let's go over the timeframe again. Start from the beginning and tell me what happened. STSF_BluRox: That's what I wanted to talk to you about. What is with that? STSF_BluRox: She's always had some fight in her. At least to do something stupid with Jamieson or Nickles....I've not seen her roll over like a dead possum before. STSF_BluRox: Do you have any insight as to what is up? Did something happen on that alien freighter when I was knocked out? STSF Seiben: Well, I was given the order to leave the nebula at warp 5. I set the navigational computers to warp 5 before I engaged. Then somehow, the ship accelerated to warp 8 which we sustained for some time. Then the emergency fail safes kicked in and stopped the ship. Rue Wydown: Lt> how long have you been on duty. And what is the normal length of one of your duty shifts? STSF Seiben: Normal shifts are 8 hours, but I was on duty for alot longer since we just came back from an away mission on an alien freighter where we rescued our CO from capture by the entity that inhabits the nebula. STSF_BluRox: Jax? Rue Wydown: Define a lot longer? STSF Seiben: I don't know for certain, but I'd say at least 12-13 hours Rue Wydown: And when was the last rest. That you had? August Jax Robinson: I don't remember anything out of the ordinary during that departure Rue Wydown: ( yes that's right I've given up on auto correct tonight. You're just gonna have to decide how to interpret what I type I'm not fighting anymore ) STSF Seiben: ::thinks:: I'd say at least 20 hours, maybe a quick nap but that's about it August Jax Robinson: I am also not sure how long she was on duty, with all the action... maybe she had or was ordered to work longer. that could have played a part in what happened Rue Wydown: And why didn't you call in for relief? STSF_BluRox: Thing was, we went from that station, right to the freighter, and were working to keep that creature confined, then right into its attack..that's all I remember, I was out after that STSF_BluRox: but from what I read from your report, most of our away team was put right back into action. I was in sickbay August Jax Robinson: They were sent back to their station:: nods:: STSF Seiben: I wasn't feeling tired, but in hindsight I should have. After the away mission, we were to report back to the bridge where I continued my shift on the bridge. STSF_BluRox: by necessity, or by who? You as well? Rue Wydown: (So Heather....soon to be new crew member sits next down next to you. Are you going to give him the cold shoulder? STSF Seiben: Given the situation and urgent need to depart the area, before the entity could change its mind and not let us leave, I wanted to leave as soon as possible. I felt that was imperative to our safety. STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::feels a bit chilly all of a sudden:: August Jax Robinson: We were told to go back to our stations, to be honest. it didn't seem wrong at the time to do so.... but we were on Duty past shift Rue Wydown: How many other crewmembers remained on duty? STSF Seiben: Most of the senior staff, our Chief Engineer, Chief Science, and our XO for that matter. I don't recall the last time any of us had gone off shift. August Jax Robinson: I mean.... you know what I mean? you return to the ship after action and you are still running on adrenaline:: looks down:: I should have known better Rue Wydown: Is this a normal occurrence on your ship? STSF Seiben: It doesn't happen every day, but in emergency situations such as the one were in, it does happen every so often. Rue Wydown: And you're not sure when the last time a diagnostic had been run at your station, is that true? August Jax Robinson::: Shakes her head:: this is my fault, I should have alerted the Bridge of the lack in down time STSF Seiben: That is true Rue Wydown: Under normal circumstances when are diagnostics run at your station? STSF Seiben: Every couple of months, usually 3 or 4. Rue Wydown: (((:::pats Seiben on the shoulder::: Don't worry, we're not all that cold, distant or silent)) Rue Wydown: Couple more questions here. Why did you join Starfleet? STSF Seiben: I wanted to explore space and see the unknown. Just like the recruitment posters. August Jax Robinson: {{I am, I mean.... your Milk comes in BAGS!! }} Rue Wydown: I see. A bit naïve that, isn't it? STSF Seiben: (It's efficient!) August Jax Robinson: {{you are insane for thinking that is normal!}} STSF Seiben: (and saves a lot of plastic) August Jax Robinson: {{Pffft}} STSF Seiben: I suppose you can say that, but it was fun. Rue Wydown: It was? Why are you using the past tense already? August Jax Robinson: {{...it's a trick Hans!}} STSF Seiben: Just trying to be a little realistic. There's a good chance I'll lose my pilot certification. Rue Wydown: ( Of course it is I'm playing a lawyer ) Rue Wydown: And if we try to plead this down what would you be willing to accept? August Jax Robinson: ::tears up:: this is my fault, I was the racking Office STSF Seiben: Yes, I would. It would certainly beat jail time. STSF_BluRox: I don’t' know what she is thinking…. STSF_BluRox: Can you talk to her? See what she is thinking? STSF_BluRox: you may be able to help this Lt Medley with some background information. STSF_BluRox: Remember, I'm just assigned to prosecute...I don't STSF_BluRox: want' to hurt my own crew August Jax Robinson: Aye Ma'am, I will do my best.... August Jax Robinson: if I am called as a witness, I can fix this... it was my fault. Not hers Rue Wydown: I asked what do you think you'd be willing to except. There still might be some jail time involved STSF_BluRox: I think she will need to at least be reassigned, or even discharged, but this.....this is prison time, make sure she knows that. But...I have to do my job, the Admiral has told me I must do my best. But he's a fair man....that's why he gave them more time STSF Seiben: ::nods:: Yes, I'm aware of that. Hopefully, it won't come to that but I'm ready to accept the possibility STSF_BluRox: Ok, August, I'll see if I can buy them some more time to work on this, the Admiral owes me a favor anyway. See if you and Heather can help them some August Jax Robinson: ::nod-nods:: I will do my best STSF_BluRox: And Jax, don't beat yourself up. Rue and you both had been on that same mission, neither of you thought of it, you were all stressed...see if you can work with that with them. STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM August Jax Robinson: ::paused:: STSF Seiben: ::Paused:: STSF_BluRox: Ok, so you got a bit more time to work with figuring out your case there...... luckily, the Admiral had to attend to other business STSF_BluRox: (any questions?)) August Jax Robinson: I can shoot him STSF_BluRox: No....I like this Admiral August Jax Robinson: booo STSF_BluRox: he pours me drinks....lol Rue Wydown: Even if she just stunned him? STSF_BluRox: lol STSF_BluRox: don't want him mad at us like a certain rice bowl hit preator was! Rue Wydown: Or with a rubber band gun? STSF_BluRox: Ok silly poeple, thank you for all your support the last few weeks, it was greatly appreciated. Thank you. STSF_BluRox: Go and hit the sack, and get some sleep. Think of how you can help Ayumu.... August Jax Robinson: We are all here for you! call me Night or Day
  15. USS Republic Mission Briefing 51706.19 – Season 25 As the charges were presented for all to hear and consider, Admiral Calvert asked for a plea from Ms Kasuga, to which she gave a surprising 'Guilty" to all charges. Incredulous, BluRox has asked to approach the bench, and Lt Medley was requested to join them. Blu asking...if she were qualified to defend this case. BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM STSF Seiben: ::seated in her chair, still out of it and looking sullen and resigned:: Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> ::glares at Blu before turning to Admiral Calvert:: Admiral, if I could have a word with my client, please? STSF_BluRox: :: Watches as Ayumu retakes her seat and turns back to Medley: I think you need to have several words. How long did you discuss the charges with her? Randy Calvert: Proceed... :::shakes his head::: August Jax Robinson: ::leans over the rail and pushes her PADD into Ayumu back:: What the Fudge girl STSF Seiben: ::still sounded sudden, sighs:: I don't know anymore... Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> I haven't had a chance to speak to her prior to entering the proceedings. It's highly unusual to allow proceedings to move forward without the accused a moment to consult with council. But perhaps that's the way you do things on Republic. STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::watches from the back:: She looks so resigned... ::to nobody in particular, quietly to himself:: STSF_BluRox: Excuse me!? How dare you?! You were brought in late, due to the person who 'was' to defend her, having to recuse herself, as someone had named her as a possible involved party. You should have put that before us, BEFORE you let your client plead guilty. Heather Jamieson: :: Looks on, very depressed and shocked :: STSF_BluRox: Lieutenant August Jax Robinson: you tell him Admiral Randy Calvert: Talk to your client, Lieutenant. These are serious charges and I'm not going to hear them again. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Understood, Admiral. ::nods to Calvert:: Randy Calvert: Make sure she understands the potential consequences. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> ::nods again:: Yes, sir. ::waiting for the dismissal before returning to her client:: Randy Calvert: :::leans back in his chair, thinking he might need a break for another drink::: STSF Seiben: Seiben> ::Drinks a can of pop:: Randy Calvert: :::motions them away::: STSF_BluRox: Admiral.....with Wydown having to recuse, I believe they've not had a proper chance to prepare. May we give them a 2 day recess, so that they can go over the facts and prepare? Rue Wydown: Lt Medley>::moves back over to the table:: Heather Jamieson: :: Can't speak to Kasuga, but wonders what is going on? Did she throw her career? :: STSF Seiben: ::sits next to Jamieson:: I wonder how bad it was... STSF Seiben: ^ Seiben Randy Calvert: :::pauses and looks to Medley::: What do you need to be prepared? Heather Jamieson: :: to Seiben :: I don't entirely know... STSF Seiben: Kasuga> ::gazes at nobody or nothing in particular, just to the floor or something:: STSF Seiben: Seiben> That's unfortunate. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> I would not object to a recess as I've just been assigned the case. Although 2 days seems excessive. STSF_BluRox: Name the time you need then. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Just give us an hour, please. So that I can confirm with my client. Randy Calvert: Granted... this session stands in recess for one hour. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Thank you, Admiral. ::nods:: STSF_BluRox: :: very well..... Randy Calvert: :::stands and exits the room through door to his office::: Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Ms Kasuga, with me, please. ::motions for her to follow her:: STSF Seiben: ::watches Admiral Calvert head to the office, then looks up at Medley:: Uhh, sure. ::follows her:: STSF_BluRox: :: turns to Jax (who isnt' here.. ) then to Medley...

I'm still allergic, but thanks....I need this…. STSF_BluRox: :: pops a tablet, then takes the offered glass:: STSF_BluRox: I expected more of a fight........ I've not seen her like this before Randy Calvert: I don't get it... nothing at all? Is she trying for an insanity plea? Randy Calvert: I thought at least they would offer up guilty with circumstances. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley>In here. ::motions to another conference room:: Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Please, have a seat. And start with why you want to plead guilty? STSF Seiben: ::enters the conference:: Sorry... ::sits down:: I don't know, I feel like I'm at rock-bottom right now and don't feel as if I have much fight in me. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley>So you'd like to spend the next 20 years in a 'Fleet prison instead of defending your actions. You do know that the penal colony is not a Hilton Hotel, right? STSF_BluRox: It's possible, as I said, that wasn't like her at all... then again, they've been under a great deal of stress, having just dealt with that alien....it had already killed 23 people.... my away team thought we were next Randy Calvert: Try to plead the punishment down STSF_BluRox: I even gave her the brief my 2nd in command prepared for me, so she would have all the facts....and no, I'm not trying to throw the trial Admiral.....but with the time allowance, I want to make sure my crewman gets a 'fair' trial Randy Calvert: ((I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last week...)) STSF Seiben: I've heard stories. But seeing how my crew defended me, that does make me feel a bit better. It's all so much, I'm not thinking clearly. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> You're a Star Fleet officer, correct? STSF Seiben: For now, I am. Heather Jamieson: :: Wathcineds STSF_BluRox: :: downs the offered drink:: Mreowwwch...... that is strong....what are you drinking? Randy Calvert: The same thing... STSF_BluRox: :: shakes her head:: That will certainly wake you up in the morning... Randy Calvert: It's normally saved for much later in the day. Randy Calvert: Today has been an exception STSF_BluRox: I can see why....... well, you have a stronger constitution than I do... One is enough for me, but thank you Rue Wydown: Lt Medley>Then put your big girl pants on. Let's talk about a defense. STSF Seiben: You're right, let's do that. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> These charges are serious. Let's start with the first one. STSF Seiben: ::nods:: Okay. Randy Calvert: ((postal fraud?)) STSF_BluRox: ((toss the book at her)) STSF Seiben: (jaywalking!) Heather Jamieson: :: Looking nervously STSF_BluRox: Another for you? Randy Calvert: No... not this early. STSF_BluRox: Alright, at dinner then. Probably for the best, not before we resume this anyway Randy Calvert: 'Let's hope they figure out what they want to with her. STSF_BluRox: How experienced "is" this JAG officer from the station? She seems young Randy Calvert: We were all at one point in time. ::: laughs lightly ::: Randy Calvert: She’s been here a little under a year. Like them all, they come in looking to make a name for themselves and think justice is clear shades of black and white Rue Wydown: Lt Medley They're claiming that you've willfully disregarded Star Fleet Law and the speed limit that your ship had just set?. STSF Seiben: That's right. I increased speed to warp 8, where the limit was warp 5. I'm not sure how I was able to do that, as there should've been fail safes in place to prevent me from doing that. The nav computer was programmed to recognize the speed limit. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> When was the last diagnostics run on the computers? STSF Seiben: ::thinks:: A few months ago, I believe? You'd probably have to confirm with Commander Jax, our Chief Engineering Officer. Randy Calvert: They pick up some real-world experience and move onto bigger and better things. STSF_BluRox: Yes....... unfortunately, it's more like many shades of gray...... Randy Calvert: ((At least 50)) STSF_BluRox: ((!!!!)) Rue Wydown: Lt Medley>Is that normal? STSF Seiben: For the nav computer to let us go over the limit? No, I never had that happen to me before. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> All right. What about this careless disregard for the sentient creatures? STSF Seiben: The sentient creature that already killed 23 people? It wasn't intentional, but as you can imagine, it was quite scary.. I think I may have been too eager to escape as I was concerned it might go back on its word and kills us anyway, though I don't have any evidence to support that, just my emotions. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Mental distress isn't a concrete defense. Think carefully. Why did you not react in a timely manner to correct the errors? STSF_BluRox: Tell you what Admiral. I need to review a few notes myself, let me go do that, and I'll let you catch up with your station business for a bit before we re-convene STSF_BluRox: If you'll excuse me for now. I'll see you back inside. But as I said, dinner is on me. :: sets her glass down and heads towards the door: STSF Seiben: I wasn't aware we past warp 5 until the emergency braking system kicked in. Usually, I would set in a programmed speed, warp 5 into the navigational computer and the auto-pilot would maintain that speed, like cruise control in old Terran vehicles. But this time, it seems that the auto-pilot didn't maintain the ship at warp 5. I know I set the speed to warp 5 when I was given the order to depart. STSF Seiben: The ship accelerated too quickly for me to notice and stop or slow the ship down manually. Rue Wydown: Lt Medley> Are there others that can testify to these facts? STSF_BluRox: (Night Admiral) STSF Seiben: Lt. Jamieson was on the bridge with me, and as mentioned Cdr Jax might be able to confirm technical facts such as state of repair STSF_BluRox: (, due to the tear, we were setting buoys lowering even that speed, it had been 5, when the freighter sped through there) Rue Wydown: Lt Medley>What about the accusation of insubordination? STSF Seiben: (ah ok thanks) STSF_BluRox: Pause Sim STSF_BluRox: pause sim STSF_BluRox: pause sim Heather Jamieson: :: paused :: STSF Seiben: ::Paused:: STSF_BluRox: Ok, you guys can either finish that in a log or in next week’s sim.
