Tarisa: I plan to use every spectrum of scan possible that could give me a result. Amanda Davis PhD: I've seen her play "Invasion of the Monsters" and another one.... Amanda Davis PhD: Of course.

Scott Coleridge: ::returns to his station to finish up his work:: Sierra Robinson: :: sips her Raktajino ...chilled :: Tarisa: ::Arrives at astrometrics after a short TL trip. She begins setting up.:: Nijil tr'Korjata: I am an engineer and astrophysicist. My associate and I developed a way to transfer minds and I developed the conduit. Nijil tr'Korjata: My actual name is Th'Prani'Tiloo. Chirakis: ::she wanders in Scott's direction and stops, then speaks quietly:: Commander, what do you know of the Chi Song? Amanda Davis PhD: :::listening, but quite astonished::: Nijil tr'Korjata: Don't worry Doctor. Nijil is perfectly fine if not by now a little confused. Amanda Davis PhD: So... let me get this straight... Scott Coleridge: ::also quietly:: Excelsior class, science vessel. I just glanced over the mission profile with Tarisa. They were on a routine study of pulsars. Scott Coleridge: Oh, and it's missing. Nijil tr'Korjata: Do you remember that civilization that broadcasted over the station’s comms some time ago? Amanda Davis PhD: The body is Nijil, but the mind is Th'Prani'Tiloo's? Sierra Robinson: :: notes the atmosphere...it seems a bit quiet. Perhaps something indeed troubling recently occurred. :: Nijil tr'Korjata: Right. He is in my body now. Chirakis: (m) Missing close to the star that nearly took out Nei’rrh and Argos II? Nijil tr'Korjata: I created what you would call 'micro wormhole' which the machine back in my time can create in a specific point in space and time. Scott Coleridge: (m) It was in the general vicinity, but I don't recall its last reported position. Sierra Robinson: :: finishes her Raktajino and departs upon payment to view the other areas of the commerce level :: Chirakis: ::considers that for a moment::: Chirakis: Thank you, Commander. Keep me apprised. Nijil tr'Korjata: My associate's machine is a quantum synaptic transfer device. Amanda Davis PhD: ::holds up her hand::: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: holds :: Amanda Davis PhD: I don't believe you should go much further with this. Unfortunately, you've gone past the confidential phase and something I must speak to the captain about. Scott Coleridge: Aye, sir. Nijil tr'Korjata: Oh no, poor Jy. Dacia Sandero: ::eating dinner at Antonio's with some of her girlfriends:: Nijil tr'Korjata: Yeah I figured as much. Sierra Robinson: :: strolls the Commerce level noting a Restaurant named Antonio's :: Alexis McFarland: ::relaxes and plays her game:: Amanda Davis PhD: So.. .may I suggest that you say no more, approach Commander Tarisa in science, and talk this out with her privately. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Hears commotions at Antonio's :: Nijil tr'Korjata: Is she versed in quantum theory and wormhole propagation? Sierra Robinson: :: looking at Menu posted on outside of Antonio's :: Nijil tr'Korjata: I should tell Tarisa who I am then? Amanda Davis PhD: I imagine that she is. And if not, there is surely someone on the station who can understand what you are saying. Sierra Robinson: Oh...Pizza.. Amanda Davis PhD: Privately, yes. However, I need to inform the captain. It will have to go down the chain of command. Nijil tr'Korjata: Engineers are all alike Doctor. Sierra Robinson: :: continues her stroll looking for some much needed supplies :: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: taps :: +Jylliene+ I will be a bit delayed, something has come up. Jylliene: +Nijil+ Very well. Shall I tell your new ensign, or will you? Chirakis: (prepare to pause) Nijil tr'Korjata: +Jy+ She went to the shops. I will inform.

Chirakis: TBS will be the next day at 11 am. Chirakis: Comments for the crew, Commander? Chirakis: Questions or comments from the crew? Sierra Robinson: Had fun! Chirakis: Glad you enjoyed it. Chirakis: If nothing else... Chirakis: Crew dismissed. Be well. Be Safe. Don’t forget your towel.
  2. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |3 April 2020 5 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.157 TBS is 4 hours. The time is 1800 hours (6:00 pm) Aegis Local. The illness that gave Aegis personnel hallucinations and strange dreams has been neutralized. There should not be a recurrence. The alien ship that attempted to attack Aegis has been dealt with. Task Force Missouri will remain in the area. USS Tssinghua, USS Anhui, RSE Praetor, and IKS Fek'lhr are monitoring Aegis space. According to Captain d’Ka, our next move is to not move. The science vessel USS Chi Song is missing. Engineering Ensign Sierra Robinson has been temporarily reassigned to Aegis. Since things have settled down for a while, Captain Chirakis is considering what we have dealt with and what might have to deal with in the near future. The Stone of Gol has been destroyed and the telepathic ringleader, V’Mal, is incarcerated and heavily guarded on a planet far-far away. Strange solar electromagnetic waves almost destroyed Nei’rrh and Argos II. For reasons unknown, the star’s waves are activated by passing starships. Drakel’a, a small planet previously used as a pass-through for organized crime, is now a major hub for the Alien Alliance. In coordination with Drakel’a, the planet AnWard is a major hub on the other side of the cordon around the Joint Allied Powers. The immense Delta Wing black stealth ship of the Alien Alliance attempted to attack Aegis but was repelled by Task Force Missouri. We suspect that there are similar ships in the area. Ragor Tal, dubbed The Dark Lord by the media and Sataniel by his adversaries, is the most cunning, dangerous, and sadistic manipulator in the galaxy. Captain Chirakis knows him well and believes that he is planning to take control of the Joint Allied Powers. It is possible that Ragor Tal initiated Argesil, the Joint Allied Powers' Watergate.

I dare say I am not like most...well, any Rihan Jylliene: ((Boy and how)) Chirakis: Anything new that I should know? Annisha: My father would have it smell like tea, and every girl's hair would be braided. Jylliene: New arrival to engineering. A temporary assignment? Nijil tr'Korjata: What would you like to know? Chirakis: :::relaxes in the chair next to her::: Sierra Robinson: I guess I am going to have a lot of studying to do on my time off.....so many different engineering systems..this will be a challenge!

  5. You are very welcome, 3 of 9 past 6. Aegis plays tonight (Friday) at 10 pm EDT if you are interested. We would be glad to have you.
  6. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |27 March 2020 5 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.157 TBS is 2 hours. The time is 1300 hours (1:00 pm) Aegis Local. Aegis is slowly returning to normalcy. Most who were affected by the disease that threatened Aegis and took the lives of 37 personnel aboard USS Missouri have been released and returned to duty. Engineering is working diligently to repair systems. One question remains: has Commander Korjata become insane, or is another crisis on the horizon?
  7. On the Edge Chirakis Kirel He's just ...off. And not just similar to a bad day, but - different. He's often talked about dreaming he's someone else, and now he's acting different. Like a different version of Nijil. Mannerisms are off. The way he talks to us. Like it's someone doing a Nijil impression. Imagine someone impersonating you and not seeming familiar with blades. ~Lt Commander Jylliene Kital Jylliene’s words to Captain Chirakis were startling enough to immediately call Psychologist Amanda Davis. Had Commander Korjata succumbed to a mental disorder? Did he possibly have a residual effect from the disease that had plagued the station? Had stress given him a mental disorder, possibly schizophrenia? After consulting with the doctor, Kirel left CnC, hoping that another crisis was not on the horizon. “Lieutenant Garand, meet me in surveillance immediately,” said Kirel as she entered the lift. “On my way, Captain,” Garand replied, scrambling to put aside his work in time to meet the captain as she entered the security complex. “We have a situation, Captain?” “Possibly,” she replied as he fell in step with her. “I need to check the surveillance footage from main engineering, Alpha watch yesterday morning.” Upon entering her code, the door to Surveillance opened to a large area covered by assorted screens that hung strategically on every wall and displayed internal and external areas of the station. Security personnel alternately hunched or relaxed at their stations as they monitored and assessed data while a few others moved smoothly among them. Captain Chirakis and Lt Jeremy Garand exited that room and entered what they called The Back Door: the observation area reserved for superior officers. The door closed, Garand offered Kirel a chair, engaged a console and flicked his wrist to throw images of engineering on the main screen. “Any particular area of engineering, Captain?” he continued as he made a few adjustments. “Follow Commander Korjata, since he is in command. And… since we are dealing with privileged information….” She slipped on a headset just as Nijil’s image appeared. “Commander Korjata beginning….zero seven hundred Aegis local, June 1, ma’am,” the lieutenant said, moving aside. As Kirel watched, Nijil seemed puzzled, looking around, and fidgeting with equipment. An approaching engineer startled him, the engineer apologized, and it was downhill from there. “Sorry, sir. Just the MP,” said the junior engineer. “MP?” said Nijil, definitely confused. “The Morning PADD, sir. The issues from the previous day that we need to tackle today.” The commander didn’t seem to understand. He stared at the PADD a moment, then took the PADD and read until he noticed a group of engineers standing next to him. “Yes?” “Your assignments, sir?” asked the team leader. “Assig… oh. Oh! Let me look here. Something good for you. How about hydroponics. Check the water lines and climate controls.” As soon as they left, the commander looked up to the ceiling as if he was waiting for something. He raised his hands and whispered, “Any time now.” Kirel reached forward to freeze the screen. “Sweep engineering for an intruder. Focus on the overhead.” “Sweeping the area… focusing on the overhead,” Garand replied, then watched the captain’s expression shift from curious to alarmed as she removed her headset with a sigh. “Secure the screen, lieutenant, and tell me…. Have you witnessed this kind of behavior in engineering before?” she asked, purposely leaving out the commander’s name. “Yes, ma’am, several times. But never out of the ordinary. Things have been pretty crazy everywhere on the station lately, so he’s not the only one to be distracted. You know… lack of sleep, lack of engineers, and especially the lack of coffee.” “Um… coffee,” she mused, relaxing into the armchair. “How long have you been watching this particular area?” "In engineering?” He shrugged. “Just over a week, ma'am." “And behavior was close to normal until recently?” “Yes, ma'am. Close to normal. The medical situation was our first priority.” “As was mine, Lieutenant. For now, keep eyes on. Alert me immediately to anything suspicious. Watch for strange behavior, odd shifts in language, talking when there is no one there. And be aware: this information is confidential.”

The End of the Beginning Aboard USS Missouri 0600 June 5, 2388 There are whispers in the emptiness between the stars, the meaning of which has all but vanished among the young. ~Ethan Neufeld Clad in full dress Sindar uniform, USS Missouri’s Captain Je’rit d’Ka stood by the viewport of his office, staring into space, beyond the ship, beyond Aegis, beyond planets, stars, and nebulae, beyond what seemed to be nothingness. What most would call a void, the ancients believed that movement among celestial bodies produced a sensual harmony, and they did. D’ka had heard them whisper since childhood. As he grew, the whispers grew with him. And in this day of mourning, the more he watched, the more he listened, and the more he heard. Some things he could control; others he could not. The pain he felt with the loss of 37 officers who had gone beyond the call of duty to help contain the Alien Alliance virus was almost more than he could bear. Commander Lei’ri stood beside him to watch, listen, and to give him solace if possible. But the solace was not forthcoming, so he kept a discreet distance, waiting for the captain’s agony to subside. “Are you familiar with an ancient terran lyricist, ‘Ri?” the captain asked as he continued to stare into space. “One with the surname Shakespeare?” “I am, Keann-aí.* But only what you have told me.” D’ka gave a slow nod, then turned to watch a distant stellar prominence and began, “How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank. Here will we sit and let the sounds of music creep in our ears. Soft stillness and the night become the touches of sweet harmony.” He sighed. “A beautiful piece, is it not?” “It is, Keann-aí. But I must ask, if I may…? “Of course.” “You have often said that you hear many things, Keann-aí. Do you hear this music in what seems to be a silent void?” “I do, ‘Ri,” he replied, turning to face him. “I always have. And what I hear in this music is profoundly sad, like a dirge, a burial song….” His voice trailed off. “Ten days, ‘Ri,” he whispered as his eyes darkened to the deep blue of mourning. “If we had been more vigilant," he continued somberly. "If we had deciphered the alien code more quickly. If we had been more cautious, more aware….” “Keann-aí,” Lei’ri interrupted quietly, “the past is gone. We must abandon those thoughts, put them aside, and look to the future.” After a moment, the captain’s eyes faded to a more contemplative blue as d’Ka turned to face him. “True, ‘Ri. We cannot bring them back. That I know all too well.” He paused for a moment of thought. “The Klingons have Sto-vo-kor, the Romulans have Vorta Vor, the Vulcans have Sha Ka Ree, the Terrans have Heaven, but the Sindar and Qr’var?” “A vast difference, Keann-aí. And we are fortunate.” An hour later the Captains d’Ka and Chirakis, along with Commander Lei’ri, stood on Missouri’s hangar deck, awaiting the arrival of a VIP shuttle. The fighter bay had been thoroughly cleansed. Bits of the alien stealth ship and its contents had been sealed in pods and sent toward the nearest star where the contents would be completely destroyed. Those who had perished in the virus were meticulously sanitized, clad in full dress uniform, and gently laid in burial pods, then draped in the symbols and colors of the house, the family, or the clan of the deceased. Her polished hull gleaming in the light of USS Missouri’s fighter bay, the shuttle settled silently on the deck. The captains and commander processed to stand by the ramp. With jaws set, eyes front, and expressions stern, they paused, then stepped to the side and turned, waiting to flank those who would exit. A moment later, with a whisper of hydraulics, the shuttle’s ramp lowered before a sea of blue, red, white, gold, silver, and gray—superior officers of the Joint Allied Powers. From the shuttle’s darkened interior the officers emerged and processed shoulder to shoulder, rank upon rank in strict formation, dress uniforms studded with insignia. A crisp command echoed from the bay’s entrance, bringing rank upon rank to sharp attention. The Honor Guard advanced in slow, strict step, their ceremonial boot heels clicking a cadence on the deck plates and cutting through the otherwise complete silence of the bay. At the bottom of the ramp, their boots slapped together before they executed a crisp about face and presented the flags of the Joint Allied Powers in tribute before the assembly, ready for the pallbearers to carry the deceased into the shuttle, to a place of honor where they would begin their journeys home. __________________ Keann-aí - The formal Sindar word for captain.

Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |13 March 2020 4 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.156 TBS is 12 hours. The time is 0700 hours (7:00 am) Aegis Local. Medical, Science, and Missouri’s personnel are close to finding a cure for the illness that has appeared on Aegis and Missouri. Genetically modified gremlins aboard Missouri have more potent pathogens. Although Aegis personnel have suffered weakness, strange dreams, and hallucinations, Missouri has lost 37 personnel. Science is testing a concoction via the environmental systems, hoping that it will neutralize the toxin on Aegis. If it is successful, they will pass it on to Missouri. A plan to relocate the gremlins to another planet is in progress.

Jylliene: ::from the bathroom:: I will, almost done:: Scott Coleridge: ::Tarisa:: Do you need any other resources to finish distributing the cure? Nijil tr'Korjata: Could be too smoky in flavor. Jylliene: ::sends a memo to Chirakis, attaching what she sent to medical, and including a few extra details:: Tarisa: ::Looks to Scott.:: We just await consent for engineering to begin configuration. We have already begun producing the canisters. Cptn d'Ka: @ {{Kh’éile, have you paged through the information forwarded to us?}} Jylliene: ::then hurriedly dresses and steps out:: What did you make? It smells wonderful. Chirakis: ::looks up from her desk::: {{I have. Why do you ask?}} Nijil tr'Korjata: An old family recipe. Scott Coleridge: Then it sounds like I should go bother engineering next! Scott Coleridge: I must away. Tarisa: ::Nods.:: Dacia Sandero: ::smiles:: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: offers her a sample of the veg :: Is this too smoky? I can't rightly tell. Cptn d'Ka: @ {{ Interested in its makeup. Very interested.}} Jylliene: ::has a seat, tries a bite...:: I wouldn't say too smoky - I like it. Nijil tr'Korjata: I have to match spices I'm not used to, so it's all estimation.

Alexis McFarland: :Still munching on tube root, returns to playing her harp and moves her head side to side with the tempo as she does:: Jylliene: ::continues eating:: Nijil tr'Korjata: It's like your music playing. Keeps me grounded, gets my mind off thinking of spacial anomalies, wormholes... engineering stuff. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: removes the pan from the heat, gets plates, a large spoon, and forks :: Chirakis: ::passing that information on to Garand and Scott::: Jylliene: ((oh, didn't realize we didn't have the food in front of us yet.

  15. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |6 March 2020 3 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.155 TBS is 10 hours. The time is 1800 hours (6:00 pm) Aegis Local. Aegis’ personnel have come across part of the virus cure. Looking for a test that would neutralize the effects of the Gremlin’s spray that has been plaguing the station, a drop of ice cream fell into a dish of antitoxin and produced a positive result. Another piece of the puzzle had fallen into place. USS Missouri continues to collaborate with Aegis in finding a cure. Genetically modified gremlins aboard Missouri have more potent pathogens. The pathogenic area is under quarantine. Although Aegis personnel have suffered weakness, strange dreams, and hallucinations, 37 of Missouri’s personnel have perished.
