  1. USS Republic Mission Briefing 5170522 – season 25 Lt. Commander Wydown has just relieved Ayumu Kasuga of duty, for gross dereliction of duty with regards to a charge of reckless piloting, through a posted fragile section of space. Posted speed limitations had already been listed, and with the advent of the most recent damage, the Republic had just updated Starfleet in recommending that even that speed needed to lowered even more, and had just posted warning buoys and alert messages within the region. However, it was noted that while Lt Jamieson was left in charge of the bridge at the time that the computer initiated a fail-safe override of the engines, it may be that she also could face charges. The ship already en-route to the nearest Starbase, where Ms Kasuga may have to answer for her actions. STSF_BluRox: BEGIN SIM STSF_BluRox: BEGIN SIM STSF_BluRox: BEGIN SIM STSF_BluRox: :: Has just arrived upon the bridge, having snuck away from medical:: Heather Jamieson: :: Science console (I think) :: STSF Seiben::: confined to her quarters:: STSF_BluRox: Rue.....report. What's wrong with the ship? :: looks around at the frantic crew at the stations on the bridge:: STSF_BluRox: That was a hard stop, inertial dampeners couldn't even handle that. Heather Jamieson: :: Checking sensor and other science systems while looking for ways to dissipate the subspace ripples caused by the sudden stop :: Rue Wydown: ::looking for all the world that she'd rather *not* explain, but must do so anyway:: We've had a breach in protocol. The ship, on the watch of the helmswoman, reached a speed of Warp 8 before the computers kicked in with an automatic braking solution. She's been relieved of duty and is now in her quarters until a full investigation has been concluded. STSF_BluRox: Holly> :: Appears lounging in Blu's seat:: Yea, like Wydown said, we had to put on the brakes pretty hard there. Not my job to watch everything 24/7...but I do what I can. Saw things red-lining...and pulled the emergency brake. Heather Jamieson: :: Watching a playback of the breaking to see what that caused :: Rue Wydown: ::used to find Holly funny, but definitely not now:: STSF_BluRox: :: Looks at Rue, then to Holly and back to Rue:: And...no idea why? You didn't see the change while on the bridge? or any change of behavior from her? Rue Wydown: No, she gave me an ETA for our next destination, then I turned the command of the bridge over to another while I went to check on how badly you were injured. STSF_BluRox: Holly> Not her fault there cat woman.....she was checking on you......Heather had the bridge at the time. Might want to ask her what was up? STSF_BluRox: Has anyone interviewed Kasuga yet? STSF_BluRox: (Rue IM) STSF_BluRox: Holly> Yea, Christina went down. I hope she didn't shoot her... Rue Wydown: Let's hope she didn't get lost on her way. Heather Jamieson: :: Thinks she hears her name, continues to work on the subspacial issue :: Rue Wydown: I've asked Christina to pull log information and Heather to provide a damage report to the rift. Jax is all ready working on ship issues. STSF_BluRox: :: taps combadge:: +Kasuga+ This is Admiral BluRox. Please prepare a written report on the event and forward it to myself and Wydown. I will call for you shortly to come plead your case Heather Jamieson: :: Working on a time lapse version of the report :: STSF Seiben: ::sighs:: +Blu+Understood. ::slowly heads over to her desk to work on her report:: STSF_BluRox: (I have the time stamped version..... night need 2 nooses) Heather Jamieson: :: to herself :: They make take a bigger screen. Rue Wydown: Jamieson, what's the status of the rift? Heather Jamieson: The damage into the tertiary subspace bands extends behind the ship like a ship leaves a wake in the water. STSF_BluRox: :: walks to the center seat, waving Holly out of it:: Rue Wydown: And is there a way to correct the damage? Or a way for us to get away from the damage without causing more? STSF_BluRox: Jamieson, put the section scans on the main viewer so we may all see them Heather Jamieson: I'm working on a way to create an anti-wave to cancel out the changes. Heather Jamieson: :: Places her time-lapse and real-time data on the main viewer. Heather Jamieson: Real-time on the right, time-lapse on the left. STSF_BluRox: Holly, go check on Kasuga for me, make sure she is ok, and help guider her report if need Heather Jamieson: We were at warp 8 for twenty minutes seven seconds. STSF Seiben: ::working over her report, still deciding the honest approach is the best option, was extremely tired wasn't paying attention to the ship's speed until the computer kicked in and activated the emergency brakes:: Heather Jamieson: The delay in stoppage is strange. I will look into that. Rue Wydown: ::blinks:: Twenty minutes? STSF Seiben: Well.. what else could I say, right? Heather Jamieson: And seven seconds. STSF Seiben: I'm screwed either way. ::feeling quite depressed now:: Heather Jamieson: Partly with you in command, partly with me on the conn. STSF Seiben: ::sends her report:: STSF_BluRox: (( And.... there were 9 minutes after Heather was told the speed, before she asked Ayumu again about it)) looks like a double court-martial! Heather Jamieson: I am trying to determine why the system failed to stop us sooner. STSF_BluRox: Holly> Maybe because you were lucky I noticed ..... It's not my job to watch you 24/7. STSF_BluRox: :: listens to them all:: Heather, until further notice, you will not take com, while I have this investigated. Heather Jamieson: The entire flight time was not the issue after we were far enough away. Rue Wydown: ::rubs her temples:: Heather Jamieson: That is fine by me Admiral. STSF_BluRox: I suggest you put your version into a report to submit. This will all have to go before a review board. Heather Jamieson: If I am part of the investigatees should I not compile a reason for the delay in halting our velocity? STSF_BluRox: ::turns to Rue:: This makes no sense, we came out here to deal with a ship that causes a tear, ended up with an angry alien from......that very tear, swore to said alien...that we'd be careful and would prevent other ships from doing the same. So how does our own crew, right after deploying sensor and warning buoys, if I read these report correctly......just how does this happen? STSF_BluRox: Perhaps you could explain to me, when you were told the speed, why you waited so long? Heather Jamieson: :: Gets the logs of the sensor and warning buoys to decompile :: STSF_BluRox: :: as she turns to Heather for the answer to her question:: You would have been the one to have called for the reduction in speed. It's lucky that Holly happened to have noticed it. Rue Wydown: I wasn't told the speed of the ship. I'd asked for an ETA to our destination. My assumption was that our experienced helmswoman would understand the importance of following our on restrictions, considering the peril we just got ourselves out of. STSF_BluRox: (sorry Rue, that was to Heather ....(the perhaps you could explain line) Rue Wydown: And it doesn't make sense. It's inattentive and reckless. STSF_BluRox: And if I recall, not the first time..... Heather Jamieson: I did not know the protocol contained a prefix to halt the ship until we were away. Many warning buoys are set to activate on a delay at many cases. STSF_BluRox: We just barely escaped with our lives from the lifeforms, that we swore we'd work to prevent, and now we've cause an even larger transgression ourselves. STSF_BluRox: Ms Jamieson...I'd suggest that you stop arguing with me, and work on that report. You will also be spending some time before the review board on this. Heather Jamieson: You asked me a question and I was attempting to provide an answer. Rue Wydown: I'm really thinking a cuppa would help calm everyone's nerves about now. Heather Jamieson: :: Opens the files from the buoys and reviews the settings :: STSF_BluRox: :: turns back to Rue:: I'll have to review all these logs .... ::stops hearing Heather again:: Rue....as I'm most likely, being a flag officer in this sector, have to help run this review board, and as I was not involved, I"m going to excuse myself from this conversation, and wait to see everyone's reports. ..... If you would please take care of .... personnel matters, it would be appreciated. I'll be in my Ready Room Rue Wydown: ::nods, glares at Jamieson:: STSF_BluRox: :: forward those maps and messages to my ready room for my review:: Heather Jamieson: :: Has the computer run simulated runs to repair the rift caused :: STSF_BluRox: :: walks over to the Ready Room and enters, ears laying half flat, and tail twitching in anger:: Heather Jamieson: :: Does a global search :: Rue Wydown: What the *heck* was that, Jamieson? Are you trying to get yourself thrown in the brig? STSF_BluRox: (seiben, you're still not showing in mod column, so can't message you, message me if you can) Heather Jamieson: I was not arguing with her. She asked me a question and I answered. Heather Jamieson: The one thing Starfleet holds above almost everything is the truth, whether personal or scientific. Christina_Nickles: (( sorry all I just walked in the door., Had to wait for closers to finish cleaning)) STSF_BluRox: (Rue, IM) STSF_BluRox: (hi Christina) STSF_BluRox: (if you are on the bridge, you are noticing a very tense conversation going on between Heather and Rue) Heather Jamieson: :: Making finishing touches on the time-lapse sensor events :: STSF_BluRox: (if you're not, you might consider having some toast and jam before going up to join them) Rue Wydown: Are you kidding me? If you were anything, you were argumentative and defensive. I half expected her to whip out her claws. There's stating the facts and there's.....well....that ::motions to all of her:: Heather Jamieson: :: Looking at three screens and moving her hands seemingly independently :: Christina_Nickles: (( gotcha, If I remember right I was on the bridge working on something)) Heather Jamieson: (Wait wait...) Rue Wydown: "You asked me a question and I was attempting to provide an answer" ::mimics her:: Sounded like a human tween. Christina_Nickles: :: on the bridge not looking up but trying to keep busy with her task:: STSF_BluRox: (smart Christina...keep your head down!) STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM STSF_BluRox: Ok...so Rue said she cant' be here next week. I have no clue about Jax...what about the 3 of you guys STSF Seiben: ::Paused:: Heather Jamieson: I will likely be around STSF Seiben: Should be as well. Christina_Nickles: I have a dogshow but Should be here unless I fall alseep on the couch waiting for time to sim. Rue Wydown: Dog show, fun Christina_Nickles: :) yep Heather Jamieson: Do they have cat shows? STSF_BluRox: I'll follow up with Jax, but if just you 2, and maybe christina for 3 minutes, then I might just call it Christina_Nickles: They do STSF_BluRox: else, you two are going to have to type alot more STSF_BluRox: Ok, well, I know some of us have to work early...so... Rue Wydown: Have a good night guys STSF_BluRox: We'll pick up either next week or the following. I’ll update everyone...... with the fact gathering before we hold a review board STSF_BluRox: With that...Crew Dismissed

  3. USS REPUBLIC MISSION BRIEFING 51705.15 - Season 25 The Republic after setting out the warning buoys, and mapping the region of damaged space to send to Star Fleet Sciences to come study....had started to head back towards the nearest Star base.....: However, for whatever reason....those on the bridge, did so at best possible speed.....substantially above the already posted limit in this region, and definitely something harmful to the area and being we just told we would prevent this from happening again. As the ship was going Warp 8, the computer safeguards kicked in, and did an override abrupt stop to prevent further damage to this region, however, the damage has been done, and some possible damage to the ship....and possibly, another tear forming directly beneath us.

Rue Wydown: ::manages to make it on to the bridge in time to hear Jax bellowing through the commlink:: STSF Seiben: The brakes came on. Computer override. I don't know why I went to warp 8 ACTION: Medical is receiving several calls about minor injuries caused from the sudden stop and the inertial dampeners not able to compensate in time Rue Wydown: You don't know why you went to Warp 8? ::glaring at Kasuga:: August Jax Robinson: ::Starts sending repair teams to location:: August Jax Robinson: ::Starts calling in the Bata shift in to help:: STSF Seiben: No, sir. Before I realized, the ship had already accelerated to warp 8. I was probably too tired to realize. Heather Jamieson: I am checking the warning buoy logs... Rue Wydown: That's not good enough. You know why we're here. STSF Seiben: Yes, I know. There was a strict limit of warp 5, and I went way over. I... really don't know what to say. Heather Jamieson: :: Both listening and pouring over logs :: COMPUTER: WARNING.....78% CHANCE THAT AS THE ACCELERATION FOR THE DAMAGED LOCATION TO THESE COORDINATES, HAS STRAINED SUBSPACE TO THE POINT THAT THE ENTIRE REGION IS AT CRITICAL..CHANCE THAT A MAJOR FRACTURE MAY OCCUR. NO TRAVEL IS CONSIDERED SAFE FOR A RADIUS OF 20 LIGHT YEARS Rue Wydown: Kasuga, you're relieved of duty. Report to your quarters and remain there until a full investigation is completed. STSF Seiben: ::nods:: Understood.. ::logs off and heads to the lift:: Heather Jamieson: That warning means we can never leave this area. Rue Wydown: ::muscles in her jaw are working, has never been seen this angry by this crew:: Webmaster: ((Quarters?? Have her put on a suit and get out and push!)) Heather Jamieson: :: frowns :: Shall I update the buoy with new information? Rue Wydown: :::inhales slowly before turning to Jamieson:: That's not an option either. How bad is the damage.

I can't believe that happened.

I wonder what New Zealand is like this time of year. Heather Jamieson: I am wondering if any of this can be repaired.. will take a bit of calculation. Rue Wydown: And? ::waiting for Jamieson's report:: Christina_Nickles: :: moves over to Ayumus console and starts pulling activity logs:: STSF Seiben: ::mysteriously, Ayumu kept increasing speed. Warp 4...5...6........7....8....:: Rue Wydown: I've just relieved Kasuga of her duties. Nickles, could you assign a guard outside of her quarters until a review what happened is completed. Not that I think she'd go anywhere, but... Heather Jamieson: We may be able to apply an inverse subspace wave to mediate the damage STSF_BluRox: (what do you think Admiral Calvert....Willful destruction of shipping lines?) STSF_BluRox: ( I think she fell asleep and her nose was on the up arrow key) Christina_Nickles: Yes sir. Heather Jamieson: I need to look at the sensor logs. STSF Seiben: (That was probably it! At least that was the IRL reason rofl) Heather Jamieson: :: Displays a visual representation of the short warp 8 flight :: August Jax Robinson: What happen up here, Engineering almost blew up?!

Rue Wydown: Gross negligence and dereliction of duty. STSF Seiben: (always..) Rue Wydown: Jax, can you help Jamieson out and see if we can figure out a way out of this mess. ::rubs her temples:: I"m going to have to inform the Admiral. Heather Jamieson: ((Told Starfleet secrets to the Romulan ambassador) August Jax Robinson: ((So no mail!!?? :O )) STSF Seiben: (Kicked the Federation President in the shins) Christina_Nickles: :: pulls activity logs from the work console:: Heather Jamieson: :: Winces being asked to work with that b-beautiful engineer :: August Jax Robinson: ::Frowns:: who did this?

  8. RueWydown I'd rather re-wind mostly because several members of our group didn't read the mission brief and started doing actions contrary to the MB STSF_BluRox I'm on conscious, if you want to rewind and everyone is good with it, go for it. (If you don't want to run it, I do have an alternate plan...I just had to find my notes. I can remember if I look at it) STSF_BluRox Go ahead Rue.... RueWydown Let's start again from the freighter, Blu's unconscious and in the force field. We've got to figure out how to get her out of it and get off that ship. RueWydown Ready? HeatherJ y RueWydown ~~Begin Sim~~~ RueWydown ~~Begin Sim~~ RueWydown I want to know what it was that set off these beings that they would put up this force field. You were supposed to be trying to communicate with it, not ###### it off. AyumuKasuga I wish I knew. HeatherJ O HeatherJ I'm trying to lower the field, the frequencies are rotating. RueWydown You wish you knew? Think, Kasuga. What was it that triggered this? AyumuKasuga People who travelled past there in the past and ticked them off AyumuKasuga ? HeatherJ Could be that whomever was here before damaged them somehow RueWydown Yes, but what set them off this time to create the force field? RueWydown And how were you all trying to communicate with them? STSF_BluRox (Remember, the original ship was speeding through here, caused a tear in space into the entity's space. The entity told you via the console when it took over the computer, that many of it's kind had been killed, and that we must pay for what was done.....Pexil poking it, showed that we were interested in harming it HeatherJ Prime number sequence, manipulating the field AyumuKasuga Via the universal translator? RueWydown Manipulating the field. Think that could have caused the problem? HeatherJ I don't have enough information to determine that. :: working :: HeatherJ :: Opening up her tricorder :: RueWydown ::motions to the forcefield holding the Admiral:: Well, before you started manipulating the fields, no force field. Afterwards...forcefield. Isn't that enough information for you? HeatherJ No it is not. HeatherJ Time until we hit the event horizon of the tear Kasuga?

  15. USS REPUBLIC MISSION BRIEFING 51710.16 The away team has made plans to take the derelict ship that had been brought to the station, and try to herd the strange electrical energy emanation back on to it. It had been theorized that when the ship caused a subspace tear, that something from that tear made its way aboard the ship, and has been trying to find its way back. We are going to attempt to take it back and see if that is the case. BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM STSF_BluRox -> :: In contact with Jax, who has been relocating a series of forcefields, trying to cut off the phenomenon’s path to other parts of the station, and back to the ship Heather Jamieson -> :: Taps on a console :: So.. let me get this straight. We lure them, er..it here, then take the ship back to the likely subspacial tear? Rue Wydown -> I hope this works, otherwise we're dooming ourselves to a rather painful death. ::watching the path of the barriers:: STSF_BluRox -> We have to do something.... the death toll was rising on the station.....we could not just leave....and we can't chance that getting aboard the Republic Rue Wydown -> Well, yeah, because that would be another whole level of bad. Heather Jamieson -> Better this ship then... Not that it will be in service again. STSF_BluRox -> ::turns to look at Heather:: Wait.....you were the one that proposed this to us........Are you now telling us you don't think it will work? Or that it's not the case? Ayumu Kasuga -> ::listens in:: STSF_BluRox -> ::turns to look at Ayumu:: And you backed up his opinion.......Perhaps you both could explain this a bit more to us, exactly how this is going to work? Rue Wydown -> :;starts wondering if she should start handing out the red shirts:: Heather Jamieson -> I just wanted clarification. I think the ship is able in as good of shape as it can be. Heather Jamieson -> The shielding in the ship is configured the same as the station's Ayumu Kasuga -> It should be easier to get into the nebula with this ship, go in stealthily. It's fairly maneuverable for its size. Ayumu Kasuga -> ::nods:: STSF_BluRox -> Nebula? Ayumu Kasuga -> Not nebula sorry. To our destination. Ayumu Kasuga -> I got mixed up. Heather Jamieson -> Can we get a reading from Republic on the station? STSF_BluRox -> I think we'd best have another look at the navigation charts..... It's bad enough that we're dealing with a subspace tear, but did not realize that there were any other relevant spacial entities in the area. Please pull up the information for us onto the main screen Ayumu and let's have a look at what you both have prepared Ayumu Kasuga -> Yes ::pulls up the star charts on the screen:: Here's a map of the area. The nebula where I got mixed up on is nearby but out of the way of where we need to go. The route seems to be straightforward enough. Rue Wydown -> ::chews on her thumbnail for a moment:: Have you all thought about how we're going to contain these entities on this ship? I mean, I really don't want to end up like a fried chicken like that ensign. Or do you think it's safe enough as it is? STSF_BluRox -> We can ask them to send us a reading, but I also want them to stay a significant distance away. I will not chance this 'thing' getting aboard the Rep. It's killed enough people already Heather Jamieson -> Their brig.. already has forcefield emitters STSF_BluRox -> Jax was going to set up a series of forcefields, STSF_BluRox -> It's an old cargo freighter.....I'm sure they had hazardous cargo at times, so those are already in place Ayumu Kasuga -> Indeed Rue Wydown -> Oh goodie Heather Jamieson -> Cargo bay 2 has the best emitters of the bunch. ACTION:: Jax working with the station crew has managed to keep the entity spotted and moving in the right direction. Though, it seemed to need little help, as she had also been increasing the power feel along the path, and it was following it, as if it were a lit path:: Heather Jamieson -> So far so good. Ayumu Kasuga -> Yeah, looks good STSF_BluRox -> Ayumu, were you able to get all the computers all working and the ship safe enough by our standards to handle this mission? Because you are going to have to fly this crate.... Ayumu Kasuga -> Yes, well to the best of my ability. It won't be very comfortable but I'm confident she's up to the task. Heather Jamieson -> We should get a good sensor sweep of this thing,' Rue Wydown -> And you've compensated for the power drain from the forcefields? STSF_BluRox -> That's a good point.....and if it is feeding on the power, some sort of back up? Heather Jamieson -> The ship does have auxiliary.. Rue Wydown -> But is it working? Heather Jamieson -> As much as it is able. Heather Jamieson -> It should be on the ship in a few minutes if everything holds... Rue Wydown -> That's comforting Heather Jamieson -> Lots of electrical interference, but it is being mitigated by the forcefield configuration. Rue Wydown -> Well, then, let's get ready to roll, hmmm? Ayumu Kasuga -> ::Nods:: I'm ready to go.Rue Wydown -> ::steps aside to check on the status with Jax:: Heather Jamieson -> The entity is crossing over to the ship in a few. Rue Wydown -> ((hey Christina)) Heather Jamieson -> Getting close to the crossover... lots of sparks Ayumu Kasuga -> ::watches and shields her eyes:: Rue Wydown -> (We're just about to get ready to get these buggers away from the station and on this ship)) Heather Jamieson -> :: winces :: I think the taste is different between the station and the ship... got to push it a little bit in the behind... STSF_BluRox -> Pause STSF_BluRox -> PAUSE SIM Ayumu Kasuga -> ::Paused:: STSF_BluRox -> oK...hopefully we'll have everyone here next week and we can get this mission underway Ayumu Kasuga -> Yes, hopefully.Rue Wydown -> :D STSF_BluRox -> with such a small crew, we need everyone's participation anymore so I'll follow up with Jax. STSF_BluRox -> Ok....so we'll see you all on Thursday and then back here on next Monday. STSF_BluRox -> Night all
