Annisha: :: munches :: Na, au sound different though. Au sure au don't need your head checked? Nijil tr'Korjata: Mimi said there was nothing on her instruments. Tarisa: It seems Dr. Pavilion was right to put a ban on stimulants. It is not the direct cause, but it is working against us. Annisha: I'd say... Nijil tr'Korjata: :: bopps her in the head :: You eat. Chirakis: ::Scott:: I will inform Commander Cayne eventually. Scott Coleridge: Do we need to do anything? Chirakis: We must be more vigilant than we ever have been... Dacia Sandero: ::nods:: I can see that, same would go for the long work schedules and overtimes, you can say the same about that since a lot of these people have worked extra time Chirakis: For the moment, the target is operatives... Chirakis: We can be sure that the danger will eventually grow. Slowly... stealthily... the danger will grow. Tarisa: I still do not see a cause. Perhaps a microvirus? We will need examine deeper. Chirakis: Any information regarding the illness? Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Looking at maps of the region, spying a look at sector 001 :: Scott Coleridge: No updates on that yet. Nijil tr'Korjata: So, how is temporal mechanics? mimipavilion: ::decides to take a more detailed scan of his brain to see if there is something deeper or anything out of the ordinary that may have been missed:: Dacia Sandero: I agree, I think it was mentioned this started not long after those gremlins arrived? We should start there. Annisha: Temporal what? We are na studying that yet. That's the upper grades. Chirakis: :::deep sigh::: Anything else? Nijil tr'Korjata: Oh, Yes. School in general then?

Annisha: :: gets her bag and starts for the door, taking her plate to the recycler as she went :: Nijil tr'Korjata: Off duty... Chirakis: It sounds plausible. I wonder if that will interrupt their circadian rhythms. Tarisa: ::Begins genetic scan of the samples.:: Do we have samples of the Gremlins? I would like to compare them.

Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Watches her leave and heads to the big display :: Computer, mirror. :: The display turns into a large mirror, showing Nijil in his everyday attire, or at least what it has been for a few days :: Guess this is alright. Looks like I live in the commerce level. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Exits his quarters and heads to somewhere new :: mimipavilion: ::Klaxon:: You're in medical. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Checks his chronometer :: I have some time. Chirakis: Klaxon> ::blinks again:: What happened? Tarisa: ::Nods:: Thank you. ::Adds them to the scans.:: mimipavilion: You became rather fatigued. What's the last thing you remember? Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Decides to go somewhere old... sickbay :: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Moments later, enters sickbay :: Chirakis: Klaxon> The last thing.... I was on my way to the training room. I think. mimipavilion: The training room. Tarisa: ::Getting some alarms. Her ears perk up, but then flatten as she reads the results.:: This...can not be right... Chirakis: ::Scott:: I suppose trying it would be the best way to figure that one. Anything else? Dacia Sandero: What'd you find? Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Not seeing anyone he should know, so sits readying an old copy of Starfleet Medical Quarterly :: Chirakis: Klaxon> Yes, ma'am. The security training room. The captain and I meet there regularly. Tarisa: These genomes...some of the markers are identical... Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Flips over to local crime reports :: Annisha: :: Makes her way to class :: Scott Coleridge: Not at the moment. Other than the fatigue issues, things seem pretty quiet. The engineering cadre has managed to beat back any remaining system glitches. mimipavilion: As in Captain Chirakis, correct. Tarisa: Between the Gremlin samples and the affected crewman samples. Dacia Sandero: ::looks at the screen:: Wow, you're right. Chirakis: Excellent. Anything from science? Chirakis: Klaxon> Yes, ma'am. Captain Chirakis. Scott Coleridge: Not yet. Last I heard they had started analyzing tissue samples. Tarisa: But if you cross reference the crewman samples with scans from the past, those markers do not exist. Dacia Sandero: Ah yes. So this might be our cause, though we still need to find out why or how it's happened. It's a great turning point I think, Chirakis: ::nods:: I'll check with Dr Sandero and Cdr Tarisa. I need to visit the medical complex anyway. If nothing else, carry on. Alexis McFarland: ::eating breakfast of eggs and toast and juice:: Tarisa: ::Nods.:: You should inform Dr. Pavilion. mimipavilion: ::nods:: Alright, ::goes back to see what the blood samples, vitals and related such when he came in:: Dacia Sandero: ::nods::: Definitely will do.

Annisha: :: Enters :: Well if it's na the miiiind reader Dacia Sandero: ::steps outside of the lab:: Alexis McFarland: Mmm, yes. Hi Annisha, you made it up here okay. Did you sleep good? Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Reading the script used in the magazine :: mimipavilion: ::sees if there is anything odd:: Dacia Sandero: Oh, hey Mimi. We found something interesting in the lab, that you should check out. mimipavilion: Alright Dacia. Annisha: :: Getting in a pose her writing teacher does in school :: Au know Ms. McFarland, we say "did you sleep well" Not "good" or "gooder" mimipavilion: ::Klaxon:: get some rest ok. Annisha: I slept better than last night. Father cooked up some funky milk thing that actually worked Alexis McFarland: Hmm, me fail English? That's unpossible! Alexis McFarland: Blue milk? Chirakis: :::moves toward the command lift, stopping to speak to Cayne::: Commander Coleridge has his hands full. I must visit the medical complex. You have the con. mimipavilion: ::goes with Dacia:: What do you have? Annisha: Green. Or was it olive. Said it was in his family for generations. Na sure how he would know that, but it worked. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: I'll try to keep the station in one piece Captain. Chirakis: :::Cayne::: I should hope so. :::enters the lift::: Medical Complex. Dacia Sandero: These DNA findings between infected patients, and the gremlins' DNA. There is some certain genetic markers in their samples that match, and hadn't before, before the gremlins arrived. Alexis McFarland: Green milk? I haven't tried green milk before. Tarisa: ::Sees Mimi enter. :: First of all, the ban on stimulants was a correct choice. They were making symptoms worse. But this was not what we called you for. This was. ::Brings up the sample data, cross referenced with the Gremlin data.:: Dacia Sandero: ::nods:: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Wondered what kind of medical facility this was as no one asked him anything, but reading this publication was all the attention he needed :: Annisha: I think it's got some kind of plant in it, perhaps it's all plant. Alexis McFarland: Hmm, interesting. How'd it taste? mimipavilion: Hmmm... so the gremlins were more or less the cause. Tarisa: It seems to be localized in specific species so far. Dacia Sandero: That seems to be the case, yes. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Reading up on brain therapy, getting a glimpse of the medical level the station risen to, at least two years ago :: Chirakis: :::exits the lift at medical and enters:: Tarisa: How it was done is still a mystery. Perhaps something to do with their stench. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Catches the Captain entering :: Tarisa: The Gremlins themselves may not even know they are doing it. mimipavilion: So now we need to deal with their DNA and purge it from the replicator and affected systems. Dacia Sandero: ::nods:: Annisha: We have the pattern in the replicator. I'll send au it. Alexis McFarland: Hm, okay. I'll try it tonight. Alexis McFarland: You warm it up before drinking it? Annisha: :: contorts her nose :: I think a little :: Tarisa: I understand the Missouri also has issues. Dacia Sandero: Mmm. Dacia Sandero: They transported the gremlins, right? Nijil tr'Korjata: Captain. mimipavilion: Yes they are. I believe so. Dacia Sandero: Nurse> :::sees the Captain:: Mimi and Dr Sandero are in the medical lab, Dacia Sandero: Nurse> Oh sorry, we'll get to you. Head to the bio-bed when you're ready. Tarisa: If they have an advanced form of what we are dealing with, then the size of the station relative to the ship might be a factor. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Wondered if Nijil was in trouble and the Captain found him :: Chirakis: Commander Korjata. ::nods::: Thank you. ::to the nurse::: Chirakis: 10:58 PM Chirakis: (prepare to pause) Nijil tr'Korjata: Yes. I am speaking better now. Here for an evaluation mimipavilion: ::nods:: So... maybe have the Missouri move away enough to reduce the symptoms for both crews. Chirakis: ::Nijil::: And you will return to duty, I hope? mimipavilion: At least until we find a solution to purge the problem from the computers. Nijil tr'Korjata: Return? So soon? Dacia Sandero: :::nods:: Chirakis: I would hope so. Engineering is getting slim. If you are able, you should return. mimipavilion: Alright I'll let the Captain know. Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: 1/24/20 - 11:01 PM Chirakis: Thank you Chirakis: We have quite a few things that should soon be dealt with, so TBS will be 2 hours. Hopefully that will give us time to get a little more information. Chirakis: Missouri will be passing their information regarding their allergy outbreak to us during that time. Chirakis: Comments, Commander Coleridge? Scott Coleridge: Nope Chirakis: questions or comments from the crew? Nijil tr'Korjata: None here Chirakis: If nothing else... Chirakis: Crew dismissed. Be well. Be Safe. Don’t forget your towel.
  2. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |24 January 2020 1 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.153 TBS is 13 hours. The time is 0700 hours (7:00 am) Aegis Local. Medical, Engineering, and Science are still on the trail of the illness. They believe that an element in caffeine might be the trigger for extreme fatigue, nightmares, and hallucinations. As a precaution, Captain Chirakis has banned coffee and anything else containing caffeine in CnC. Aboard USS Missouri, personnel are experiencing allergic reactions, source unknown. Admiral Mulligan has informed Captain Chirakis that Ragor Tal, a powerful and merciless leader, is now connected to the Alien Alliance.
  3. Times One Thousand In engineering. Everything going wrong around me. Alarms going off. Nothing I did was making any difference. It was like the glitches times one thousand. ~Scott Coleridge Captain Chirakis arrived in CnC well before the change of watch, after her daily bout with Lt Klaxon in the security complex training room. Having been given orders to ignore her rank and fight to kill, the lieutenant had become quite an opponent and had mastered skills that could have easily ended her life. But this morning? His steps were uneven, his movements awkward, and his attacks slow. He was disoriented and often unable to focus. Kirel grabbed his shoulders, but he seemed to be in another world. “Lieutenant?” No response. She gave him a firm shake. “Klaxon! Respond!” His eyes glazed over. A trainer on the adjacent mat took firm hold just before Klaxon fainted. He called for assistance and beamed him to medical. Extreme fatigue had overtaken him, as it had many on Aegis. An hour later, the Officer of the Watch turned to the sound of the command lift. “Good morning, Captain,” he said on approach. “Situation normal.” “No ‘AFU’ this morning?” She asked, referring to SNAFU with a wry grin. Her glance swept the area: a ritual honed from SI-5 days, but still pertinent for any entry as far as she was concerned. “No ‘AFU’ this morning, ma’am. Coffee?” “Coffee?” she said sternly. “Decaffeinated, ma’am. It’s supposed to have everything… uh… all the bad stuff removed, ma’am.” Having just dealt with Klaxon, she didn’t trust anything remotely connected with coffee—at least until science and medical verified its use. “Remove the coffee, Lieutenant,” she said quietly, but firmly. “Remove everything even remotely connected to coffee, caffeine, or otherwise until Dr Pavilion pronounces it harmless. Understood?” “Yes, Captain.” After a curt nod she entered her office. Admiral Mullins of Federation Security would soon appear onscreen. In ordinary times they had reported weekly, but these were not ordinary times. Their weekly reports were now daily, encryption was beyond the norm, and security protocol was engaged in her office. Kirel’s desk viewscreen soon came alive with the image of Admiral Mullins. He seemed weary, as though he’d been awake all night, and a man of his age certainly did not need to. It triggered an alarm, like waiting for the next shoe to drop. “Good morning, Kirel. You’re early.” “As are you, Admiral. Should I ask why, or should I leave well enough alone?” The admiral’s slight grunt turned into a smirk. “Well enough alone is best. Report?” “Yes, Admiral.” She leaned forward to rest her elbows on the desk and thumb through her tablet. “Regarding glitches on station, those have surprisingly disappeared. However, we are now dealing with ...” She checked her list. “... approximately fifty three crew and some families who have extreme fatigue, strange dreams—they call them ‘nightmares’—and hallucinations. Science and medical are working diligently to diagnose the problem. “USS Missouri’s work on the Alien Alliance stealth ship is progressing. They have broken the ship’s code. Apparently a species similar to our gremlins—small, ignorant, and naive—was convinced to take the ship and breach Aegis’s space, for reasons unknown. No personnel of the Alien Alliance were aboard. “Missouri also reports that their personnel have fallen ill with symptoms similar to, but not the same as ours. So far, their illness presents itself as an allergic reaction. Captain d’Ka will give you more information. That is all I have at the moment, Admiral.” As Kirel relaxed in her chair, Admiral Mullins nodded into a dire expression, staring at the viewscreen. His exhaustion had turned suddenly to grief. His hands folded, he leaned forward and took a moment to gather his thoughts. “Thank you, Kirel.” He paused again, wiping a hand down his face before continuing. “Kirel…. two of our best operatives were taken hostage... and brutally tortured for information. Knowing these men, I doubt that they revealed anything. What was left of their bodies was bagged and sent to Starfleet Command with a note from….” Mullins stopped to stare at her. “... Ragor Tal.”

We are still trying to pin down the reason for illness. The illness seems to be selective. Captain Chirakis is in the medical complex to discuss the same problem aboard USS Missouri.

Johnson Kenyon: ::responding to questions about the no stimulants policy:: Chirakis: :::hands Scott the PADD::: Commander, this information is interesting. Dacia Sandero: I wonder, it is only caffeinated beverages that is causing people to go through with these symptoms? Jylliene: ::heads toward quarters:: Scott Coleridge: ::looks it over:: That's one word for it. Tarisa: ::Looking to Dacia.:: Have you tried blood testing? Maybe compare it to past medical logs? Chirakis: ::stands::: Dr Pavilion, Captain d'Ka has information regarding the illness that their personnel are experiencing. Dacia Sandero: I know raktajino doesn't use caffeine, as caffeine is a Terran stimulant. We don't have any Klingons reporting to feel these symptoms. I wonder if that is due to their physiology or if raktajino is affected by this virus. Chirakis: And... if you can spare her, Dr Sandero should know. Dacia Sandero: We could try that. Jylliene: ::enters quarters:: Dacia Sandero: I wonder if there's anyone we know who consume it exclusively that's non-Klingon and if they too are experiencing anything abnormal. mimipavilion: ::a bit surprised:: OK ::Dacia:: Can you come here for a bit? Dacia Sandero: ::turns around:: Yeah, sure. ::heads over:: Tarisa: I would recommend testing those that are unaffected too. It could be that we have this as well, we just have not shown symptoms yet.

Dacia Sandero: ::noting the difference in symptoms as well:: Alexis McFarland: You feeling hungry or something?

Besides, it's time for a much needed break:: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Moments or minutes later Annisha and Nijil enter their quarters :: Chirakis: You might not be aware that they are putting together the pieces of the destroyed stealth starship that tried to attack Aegis.

Dacia Sandero: (and water his rhododendrons!) mimipavilion: ::looks up at Chirakis:: Wow… Chirakis: ::Nods:: Unfortunately, the species that navigated that ship was one similar to the Gremlins on Aegis. Dacia Sandero: I imagine they too are working long hours with copious amounts of coffee? Alexis McFarland: ::heads to the lift to the commerce area:: Dacia Sandero: Ahh... mimipavilion: Hmmm... Chirakis: :::Dacia:: I doubt that caffeine itself is the cause. Chirakis: ::looks to Scott:: Ideas, Commander? Nijil tr'Korjata: :: He escorts Annisha to their couch then brings up the UT specs on the big screen :: Scott Coleridge: If our difficulties stem from the ship, then that might explain why we're having trouble understanding them. Dacia Sandero: Probably not, I suppose. Scott Coleridge: Since everything about this ship is inscrutably stealthy Chirakis: ::pondering that point::: Alexis McFarland: ::thinks, but doesn't know enough about Missouri to go far with that:: Dacia Sandero: :::doesn't know about the Missouri to have an opinion either way: Scott Coleridge: I wonder, if Missouri were to... move farther away... would Aegis recover? Scott Coleridge: That is, is this a proximity phenomenon? Alexis McFarland: ::thinks St. Louis is a fine city, as she makes her way to the food court:: Blubby's again, or somewhere else? mimipavilion: I'm wondering if the stealth ship is emitting some type of radiation that is affecting everyone. Has anyone beamed over from the Missouri recently? Chirakis: No, not from Missouri. However, I did go to Missouri at the request of the captain. Johnson Kenyon: ::looks up from a seat in Main Engineering. Realizes he had just engaged in microsleep:: Chirakis: It's possible that I brought it back. And I am immune, as is Captain d'Ka. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Annisha, now lying down :: Father, will the dreams stop? mimipavilion: ::nods:: Wouldn't hurt for you to get another to see what we didn't see the first time. Nijil tr'Korjata: I hope so. :: Nijil says, looking at the UT logs :: Chirakis: ::checks to see if the doctor's door is secure::: It's interesting that not all species on Aegis are getting the illness. Johnson Kenyon: ::takes a deep breath,picks up a PADD and walks around engineering checking on the condition of the engineers:: Tarisa: Miana> ::Blubby's is fine. mimipavilion: ::nods:: True. Chirakis: And.. unfortunately... there is another possibility that we should consider. Dacia Sandero: ::::nods:: Mm, yes mimipavilion: ::concerned:: Which is?

Tea perhaps :: Dacia Sandero: ::listens:: Chirakis: :::dour expression::: The gremlin-like species that moved to attack Aegis might have been sent there to spread whatever the illness is… Meaning that it could have been done specifically to send out a strain of virus to destroy us on Aegis. Though it is highly unlikely. Dacia Sandero: We could run some tests, I imagine we must have DNA samples from the gremlins on hand? Chirakis: We do. Jylliene: ::arrives at their quarters:: Jylliene: ::enters:: mimipavilion: ::nods:: I take the Missouri medical team has done a thorough scan of the pilot.

I got my translator working. Tarisa: Miana> ::Snacking on some nuggies.:: Mmm... Chirakis: I do believe that it is interesting that not everyone on station is infected. And the engineers have only one infected. Alexis McFarland: At least I'm glad you seem to be sleeping good. Jylliene: ::grins:: Good to hear you and recognize what you're saying. Nijil tr'Korjata: I'm speaking some obscure language for reasons I've not looked into yet Jylliene: How's Annisha? Scott Coleridge: It's hard to tell who's "infected" or not. Chirakis: True. Scott Coleridge: Because the symptoms match ordinary fatigue. Tarisa: Miana> ::Nods.:: Me too. Everyone in my family seems fine. mimipavilion: Agreed. Dacia Sandero: Yes, true. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Turns to where she is on the couch :: Tired from her dreams... I think she is reliving her experience on that planet with the mineral. Scott Coleridge: Hmm Alexis McFarland: Same as with my family. Jylliene: ::frowns:: Chirakis: :::looks to the doctors::: So my question is: how should we proceed? Scott Coleridge: What if we switched to half-shifts for the next few days and enforced extra rest periods? To reduce the number of false positives caused by fatigue. Then we quarantine anyone who shows symptoms. Johnson Kenyon: ::notices a few of the engineers seem to be more affected on the upper decks.... sends them to medical to be checked out:: Scott Coleridge: If this condition is contagious, perhaps that would help us contain it. Johnson Kenyon: +Medical+ Lt Kenyon to Medical Dacia Sandero: ::Scott:: I think that's a good start. Nijil tr'Korjata: Her bad dreams.. my repeat dreams of seeing the same wo- person over and over.

  5. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |17 January 2020 31 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.152 No TBS. The time is 1600 hours (4:00 pm) Aegis Local. Aegis Medical, Science, and Engineering personnel continue to pin down the reason for illness aboard Aegis. Several ideas are being discussed. Strangely enough, the virus seems to be selective. So far, Tarisa, Miana, Dr Pavilion, Dr Sandero, Lt Kenyon, and most engineers have not succumbed to the infection. Captain Chirakis is in the medical complex with information that the USS Missouri’s crew has also experienced random illness. At the moment, the captain’s concern goes beyond the illness, believing that it might be a planned attack by the Alien Alliance. However, if that were the case, all personnel on the station would be infected, and the virus would strike simultaneously without warning.

Johnson Kenyon: ::nods to Doctor:: Furthermore, any non essential duties will be curtailed to allow for additional off duty time Annisha: I heard a rumor from a shopkeeper who heard it from a customer who heard it from a maintenance crew who overheard a nurse who heard it in earshot of a Doctor that the whole station is having bad dreams. Johnson Kenyon: Doctor, do you want to add anything? Chirakis: I'm in good health, Doctor. I can wait. Alexis McFarland: That might explain why so many people seem to be more edgier than usual.

Nijil tr'Korjata: Annisha, aua le faia lena mea. Chirakis: Lieutenant, I am sure that you are aware of the prevalence of lethargy lately. Have your team look into the air... the units, the ducts... everything. That could be the problem. mimipavilion: ::grabs a tricorder:: Tarisa: Perhaps it is because our sleep patterns are different? Chirakis: It has happened before, though not to this degree. Johnson Kenyon: Captain, you think there is some agent responsible? Annisha: :: She faced him with her sorrowful and wet eyes :: Father? I don't understand. Chirakis: An agent? Chirakis: Explain.

Nothing out of the ordinary here. Perhaps.. the people experiencing these symptoms seem to mostly be the engineering and security staff which have been under alot more stress lately than the rest of us. I'd imagine that's playing a part in this. Johnson Kenyon: Agent.... a generic term for chemical, biological, or physical thing which can affect beings. Tae'Lynn Dran: ::not finding anything obvious in the logs. Puts the data through the computer to find any possible correlations:: Chirakis: Check all possibilities, Mr Kenyon. Johnson Kenyon: Aye, Captain. We'll look into it. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Is there something you can prescribe Dr. Pavilion? Coffee is not cutting it. Chirakis: Take as many engineers as you need, especially those who are not falling asleep. Dacia Sandero: Anyone in science also feeling the same symptoms as the others?

Johnson Kenyon: ::takes an empty console on the CnC and starts relaying orders:: Dacia Sandero: ::nods:: What are their sleep patterns like?

Tarisa: ::Tilts her head curiously.:: A strange language? Cdr Wyatt Cayne: In an effort of completeness, I had a dream. Is there any reason I would think you are chasing me while I'm on a mission? I look for you and I can't find you. Maybe I'm just paranoid. Dacia Sandero: ::nods:: Don't know what language it is. Though I am no linguistics expert. +Kenyon+ Medical here, go ahead?

Johnson Kenyon: +Dr. Sandero+ The Captain has asked me to investigate if there is something being sent through the station that is affecting nearly everyone. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: If you are chasing after me there are far easier methods than in my dreams, however it feels sinister. Tarisa: I see. ::Hears Kenyon.:: Johnson Kenyon: +Dr. Sandero+ but, honestly, I haven't been affected and it would be helpful if I could narrow the parameters. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Many of my missions involved isolation. Perhaps that's coming to bite my in the backside. mimipavilion: I wouldn't chase, unless it was an emergency. Dacia Sandero: +Kenyon+ That's an interesting theory. Would explain a lot... yes, we'll help in any way we can. Amanda Davis PhD: Jake> ::seems to be waking up::: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Really? Nice to know you would though. Other than old what does your scanner say? Chirakis: ::watching the tactical monitors as she mulls over her dream last night... and Lt Garand's black eye::: Johnson Kenyon: +Dr Sandero+ Do you have any idea what we should look for? Dacia Sandero: +Kenyon+ I'm not seeming to be affected either, seems to be the people who having been overworking recently such as the case with your department in particular. Annisha: :: Eats :: Au should see a doctor. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: does a 'na, really' gesture :: mimipavilion: ::Cayne:: Well, nothing that's hasn't been seen.

Johnson Kenyon: +Dr. Sandero+ I'll stop by shortly and review any findings you might have.

Scott Coleridge: For a naturally-occurring substance to cause such a specific set of symptoms across multiple species? No, if there's something more to this than simple fatigue, I'd lay my latinum on it being designed. Engineered. Johnson Kenyon: ::entering medical, looking for Dr. Sandero:: Annisha: :: places her hand atop his :: We'll figure it out and maybe stop the station from spinning. mimipavilion: I'm fine.

I dreamed it over and over. Johnson Kenyon: ::sees Tarisa and Dr. Sandero:: Scott Coleridge: But if this is another type of attack, it seems like a very ineffectual one, compared to the chaos created by the systems virus. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Nijil looked shakened, hoping this trama had left her :: Chirakis: (w) And how exactly would that work besides making certain species ill or acting strangely? Dacia Sandero: ::scans again:: I'll have to perform a more detailed scan to determine, though I guess I could also say that of myself if that is the case.

Scott Coleridge: Keep in mind this is all outside my area of expertise. You'd be better off consulting science or medical. But we're looking at something that involves neurotransmitter and hormone inhibitors. Dacia Sandero: Hello. We were just trying to see if there was anything in Tarisa, or my biology that's acting as immunity to what 's happening to the others. It's worth a check. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: hops off the bed :: Tarisa: ::Catches a scent, turns to Kenyon.:: Scott Coleridge: It could interfere with melatonin production, stimulate adenosine receptors... basically act like a stimulant. Johnson Kenyon: Doctor, do you drink coffee by any chance? Chirakis: ::considers that:: I will. Tarisa: Are any other telepaths being affected? Scott Coleridge: I don't know how it could cause nightmares, but certain psychotropic drugs can induce those, so it's possible. Dacia Sandero: None of the other Betazoids on the station seem to be affected by this, to my knowledge. Me? No, I tend to drink tea over coffee. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Looks for the door :: I'll be on my way. :: exits :: Dacia Sandero: Not that I know of ::;to Tarisa:: Annisha: :: munches on he doughnut :: mimipavilion: ::Cayne:: You're free to go.

Chirakis: ::quirks a brow::: I will consult Dr Pavilion and whomever else needs to collaborate. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: nods then leaves :: Dacia Sandero: Possible.. it was a coffee I made that caused the replicators to malfunction. Scott Coleridge: Would you like me to go to medical and have them run tests on me, given my rough sleep the night before? I had a great sleep last night. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Passes others entering medical :: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Hugs her again, harder this time :: Johnson Kenyon: you think there's a link between the coffee made by the replicators? Annisha: Ugh, I'm fine father. mimipavilion: ::walks over to Dacia and the others:: Chirakis: ::nods::: Excellent idea. When they are done, they can examine me for my strange dreams. Dacia Sandero: It's possible. Chirakis: (prepare to pause) Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Looks behind him, seeing if he's being followed :: Johnson Kenyon: I think we need to scan the coffee then.

  9. Beyond Reality Uncharted Space - Stardate 2388.152 Drakkor drifted silently while its pilot took scans and gathered data. SI-5 Director Torak had several operatives investigating a questionable area of the Morass Nebula. As one of those operatives, Chirakis Kirel, had cut across uncharted space to investigate a certain debris field. As was noted in the director’s report, the field spread across several parsecs and was dense enough to prohibit passage. Scans within the field registered several starships of varied size and design. All were built of a strange material and were of strange configuration. The computer’s attempt to extrapolate possibilities regarding cause, origins, and various other parameters regarding these ships came up with nothing—not exactly a report that Director Torak would expect. Kirel relaxed against the pilot’s seat and stared into space. She had wrapped up her investigation and report, and yet she felt compelled to stay in the debris field. Watching the field drift through space piqued her curiosity. Surely there were more questions to be answered, especially regarding the ships that could not be identified. So she stayed to drift with the debris—quiet, solemn, and interesting. The soft ping of a proximity alarm drew her attention to an incursion just off her starboard wing. Cutting all power, she watched a shuttle of strange configuration pass beneath Drakkor. Eventually it turned and made another pass approximately two kilometers distant: much too close. Its grid pattern seemed spoke of searching for something. Several hours later the vessel left the area, leaving Kirel adrift and deep in thought. One hour became two as Drakkor continued to drift with the field, eventually coming to a Class-D planetoid that seemed to be inhabited. Finding no vessels in the area, Kirel maneuvered slowly and cautiously to investigate, yet she still knew not what urged her on. The communication system crackled and a distant call, barely audible, came through: “Cuidigh liom, Eru.” Interesting. “Computer, scrub and replay.” Compliance. “Cuidigh liom, Eru.” “Translate.” Translating. “Help me, Eru.” “Language?” Terran Gaelic. Gaelic? An ancient Terran language spoken within a distant nebula that was filled with undamaged drifting vessels that showed no signs of battle and was surrounded by a dense fog? “Computer, point of origin?” Point of origin is Class D planetoid. “Distance?” One parsec. Kirel powered up and took manual control to maneuver through the thick fog that grew more dense as they approached the planetoid. Drakkor did not mind, nor did its master. In fact, the fighter seemed to come alive. It was now entity that merged with her as they maneuvered toward the cry for help. The call for assistance continued, occasionally shifting from from Gaelic to Faroese, then Frisian, and a few others that neither she nor the computer could decipher. Kirel’s thoughts began to spin. She suddenly lost her focus: the reason for landing on the planetoid, her reason for being there, and her place in time. Everything merged with the fog. Nothing seemed rational. Everything was out of place and out of time.... “Computer, current stardate.” Twenty-nine eighty-seven point two one six. A full examination of the console verified the computer’s response. She sighed. “Computer, access local buoys for accurate stardate.” The current stardate is twenty-nine eighty-seven point two one six. The current date on Acetus I is the first day of Oergon in the year 1378. The current date on…. “Stop.” Silence. “Computer, current Federation date, Sky Harbor Aegis relative.” The third day of Augustus in the year twenty-three eighty-seven. Her head began to spin…. “Captain?” A distant voice slowly parted the heavy mist. She began to shake it off. “Captain! Wake up!” Her eyes opened, but would not focus. Her arms reached out for Drakkor’s control panel. A hand firmly grasped her forearm, resulting in a black eye for Lt Garand who was trying to settle her down. A cold, wet compress draped around the back of her neck. Someone saying, “Hold her down. In this condition she could be deadly,” brought her back to reality. She was completely awake, but thoroughly confused. An hour ago Kirel had been reviewing intelligence reports in Aegis’s Security Complex and had fallen asleep. Lt Garand found her leaning on a console and had been calling her name with no response. He then called Sgt Nunez and Corpsman Meier and informed the Medical Complex. “Captain, talk to me,” said Meier, checking her vital signs. “It’s Meier, Captain. Talk to me.” After staring at the surroundings Kirel asked, “What is the current stardate, Lieutenant?” Meier’s expression turned skeptical. “The current stardate is 2388.152, ma’am. Are you alright?” After a deep breath and a slow exhale, she nodded. “I am now, Lieutenant. I am now.”

Chirakis: Jake> ::::stops, looks around, and winces against the pain, then leans back on the bed::: mimipavilion: ::Jake:: What's wrong, Lieutenant? Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Captain. I had a recent terrifying nightmare.

Dacia Sandero: Ahh, I see. Sometimes I have dreams like that too. Though, I assume you've already discussed all this in detail with Dr. Davis. Jylliene: ((Chamomile tea, melatonin, AND shore leave, perhaps. And also a plushie.)) Cdr Wyatt Cayne: An SI Op, so pretty sure it's not cleared. Nijil tr'Korjata: I've not told Jylliene. I can only imagine the ribbing I'd get Chirakis: (w) Use my office if you wish. See if you can rest. Scott Coleridge: You're the acting chief engineer. You're within your prerogative to assign someone if you like. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: No, I should remain at my post, and not cry into my coffee.

  11. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |27 December 2019 30 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.151 (Unofficial Sim) TBS is 15 hours. The time is 0700 hours (7:00 am) Aegis Local. Engineering and science are still dealing with the virus that caused chaos throughout the station. They aim to harden the station systems against further attacks of that nature. Cdr Korjata has been released from the medical complex, but will not return to duty until he is cleared. A Starfleet Command Engineer is in the medical complex after his toolbox landed on his head. He insists that a “drop dead gorgeous” women distracted him when she kept passing by. However, no woman was in that area. Security is checking surveillance footage to verify his claim.
  12. Welcome Back Aegis Medical Complex 2100 hours Jake blinked against the overhead lighting and squeezed his eyes closed tight. He wanted to puke. Lights. Strange bed. Coffee. Someone standing over him. Why? Need to finish the assignment and get out from under this stupid console ‘cause shift is about to end and the boss will kick ass if I don’t…. "Lieutenant!" Whoa! Man, that voice is loud. "Shuddup. Got a job ta do….” he said, wincing against the sound. "Wake up, Lieutenant. Talk to me." “I am talkin’ to you, Ensign!" he growled, “and this is not the time to be talking. Now get a move on!” Jake was gettin’ hot. Really hot. Ready to bolt from ‘under the console’ and pound some sense into the ensign’s head. "Welcome back, Lieutenant," he heard again, and that was the kicker. He was ready to explode. "Damn," said Jake, finally opening his eyes to ‘roll out from under the console’. But there was no console, just a few sheets. Taking hold of them, he began to pull himself up… ...and the room began to spin. "Easy, Lieutenant," someone said as a strong hand took firm hold of his arm and eased him back onto the pillow. The voice was vaguely familiar, almost like…. "Commander?" Jake struggled to focus. “Take it easy,” said Drexler as he motioned to a nearby nurse. “You got quite a bump on your head. In fact, it’s so big we might have to name it after you.” “Sir?” he responded, puzzled, as he squinted to focus on the commander, then Lt Mike Jersey, corpsman/engineer who stood to the side. “Where am I, sir?” Drexler pulled up a chair and relaxed into it, arms crossed. “Aegis Medical Complex. I’m told that you had quite a sizable toolbox land on your head and knock you out. Do you remember anything about it? Can you tell me how that happened?” Jake’s puzzled expression remained as he struggled to remember… well… anything. “Not really, sir. It’s all fuzzy. But what I do remember is … this woman. Red hair. And drop dead gorgeous, sir. She reminded me of this girl at the academy, sir. She just kept comin’ around, smiling, like she was trying to catch my attention so we could go…well…somewhere alone, sir.” Drexler glanced at Jersey. “So.. red hair, good looking, Starfleet uniform?” “Yes, sir.” “Was the insignia like yours, or the regular Starfleet?” “Don’t remember, sir. That’s… uh… not exactly what I was looking at.” After a moment of thought, Cdr Drexler nodded congenially and pushed himself from the chair patting Jake gently on the arm. “We’ll look into it, Lieutenant. Let us know if you remember anything else, but most of all, take it easy. Rest. Got it?” “Aye, aye, sir.” * * * * * * Upon exiting the medical complex, Cdr Drexler stopped and turned to Mike, who had accompanied Jake to the medical complex. “Nothing makes sense,” Drexler mused rhetorically, gesturing as he spoke . “Supposedly this beautiful woman was wandering through your team’s area, but no one else saw her?” “No one else, sir.” “And this happened when?” “Treatment began at 1534, sir. Released to medical at 1539.” Drexler took a deep breath then nodded on a slow exhale, lips pursed. “Well… as soon as security finishes checking their surveillance footage we’ll know for certain if there was a women down there. Until then, we wait.”

Johnson Kenyon: Commander, Medusans are these species without bodies. To look on one without protective lenses cause humans to go insane. Johnson Kenyon: However they are very useful navigators and have been serving in some specially designed Star Fleet ships. mimipavilion: ::nods:: Alright. thank you. That'll be all for now. Johnson Kenyon: That got me thinking. If they can do that, could a non corporal being live in our power systems?

Delusion? :: mimipavilion: ::and crosses it with who was on duty at the time of the incident:: Johnson Kenyon: sending signals through the power relays. Since they are separate from the data relays, they can send information to any part of the station at any time, but they have to send the correct voltages to get a signal through. Scott Coleridge: We've had experiences with non-corporeal life-forms interacting with our power systems. Johnson Kenyon: we have? Chirakis: Mike> :::walks toward Amanda, but does not approach Jake's bed::: Scott Coleridge: Yes, we've encountered a being designated "Shadow." I believe you have clearance for the logs. Scott Coleridge: So such things exist, to be sure. But I'll remind you of Occam's Razor. Johnson Kenyon: Occam's Razor? mimipavilion: ::But doesn't find any correlation:: Hmm... mimipavilion: ::exits her office:: Dacia, mind the store. Dacia Sandero: Yes, very well.. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: watching couples and others around the park :: Johnson Kenyon: ::Message to Nijil through data PADD:: Sorry. Tied up with Coleridge visit. Will get back to you later.

Nijil tr'Korjata: :: swirls his hand in the water :: Scott Coleridge: ::looks back:: Sorry, thought I saw something. What was that you just said? mimipavilion: ::Chirakis:: There's a related matter that brings me up here. Chirakis: A corpsman/engineer. Sounds like one of Commander Drexler's team. I’m glad he was available. mimipavilion: ::nods:: Chirakis: ::nod:: Continue. Johnson Kenyon: ::puts down PADD:: Commander, you're saying I'm over thinking this? Scott Coleridge: I like that you theorize big. ::smiles:: It's a good trait in a senior engineer. But sentience is only one theory of many. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: to noip :: This is a nice place. Amanda Davis PhD: What he needs most now is rest. We will keep you informed. Johnson Kenyon: Oh. I agree. It's just a very unique situation. Amanda Davis PhD: Mike> Yes, ma'am. Thank you, ma'am. Scott Coleridge: The difference between our job as engineers versus the job of the scientists is that we need to put theories into practice. As much as it might intrigue us on an intellectual level, we need to focus on what we can do and leave it to the scientists to investigate what the virus *is*. Amanda Davis PhD: Mike> ::after taking another look at Jake, he exits the trauma unit and the medical complex to return to work:: Scott Coleridge: So whether or not the virus is sentient, we know it *is* adaptive. Proceeding on that basis, consider the best antivirus you can develop to fight it. Scott Coleridge: Why not turn the virus against itself? mimipavilion: The ensign... Wright mentioned a female engineer. Well, the Command Engineers have no female engineers and I checked with our group of engineers, specifically the females on duty. They were else were. Wright mentioned red hair... none of our red haired female engineers where even on duty. Johnson Kenyon: ::nods:: I'm hoping to create an encoding device for the power relays that prevent their signals from passing to data without a code. Johnson Kenyon: Turn the virus against itself? Scott Coleridge: That's a good idea and improves our security overall. Chirakis: :::ponders that::: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: looks at his Chrono, lays back on the grass :: Scott Coleridge: The virus can only adapt based on the feedback signals it receives. You and Tarisa figured out how to run a copy of the virus in a simulated environment. Johnson Kenyon: I'm also setting up a way to modulate the power to sort of damage the viral code if it is in the power stream. Scott Coleridge: Why not replicate that result on the station-level? Figure out how to ensure the virus receives false feedback so that we control how it adapts. mimipavilion: So that made me think we may have an impostor on board. Scott Coleridge: Then it's just a matter of making sure the only thing it disrupts is itself. Chirakis: An impostor. :::pondering::: Johnson Kenyon: ::to Coleridge:: It's a brilliant idea. I'll see if Tarisa can help simulate it. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: wakes up :: What...? The park? Scott Coleridge: Good. Keep me apprised of the work on the power systems. ::looks around:: And good luck minding the store until Commander Korjata is back. Let me know if you need anything. mimipavilion: ::nods:: I'm forwarding you a copy of the report now. ::sends it from the PADD in her hand:: Chirakis: I'm going to have Lt Garand forward the security footage from that area. Chirakis: We'll see if there is someone wandering. mimipavilion: ::nods:: Johnson Kenyon: ::looks down::: Sort of like an antivirus running in lock step... ::looks up:: I'll let you know what I find out. Chirakis: ::nod::: Thank you, Doctor. Chirakis: (prepare to pause) Alexis McFarland: ::eating her food with Miana:: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: wonders how he got here :: mimipavilion: ::smiles:: No problem. Johnson Kenyon: +Tarisa+ Kenyon to Tarisa. I need your assistance in modifying another simulation. hirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: Thank you Chirakis: Very well done, as always. Chirakis: TBS will be until tomorrow morning at 0700. Chirakis: Comments from you, Commander Coleridge? Scott Coleridge: Nope Chirakis: Questions or comments from the crew? Chirakis: One comment from me... actually two comments... Chirakis: First, thank you for persevering and getting into the room. Chirakis: Secondly, next week is just past Christmas. Is that a problem for anyone? Johnson Kenyon: might be Nijil tr'Korjata: Not for me Scott Coleridge: I will be wearing a festive hat, but you won't be able to tell. Chirakis: Understood. Alexis McFarland: Shouldn't be.. mimipavilion: nope Johnson Kenyon: probably not, but there's always that possibility Chirakis: If you can make it, wonderful. If not, no problem. I'll make the sim unofficial just in case. Chirakis: However.... you never can tell what the end of the year will bring.... Alexis McFarland: hmm Chirakis: It could be very interesting. Chirakis: Anything else? Chirakis: Very well... Chirakis: Crew dismissed. Be well. Be Safe. Don’t forget your towel.
  14. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |20 December 2019 29 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.150 TBS is 8 hours. The time is 1500 hours (3:00 pm) Aegis Local. The station is fairly quiet, except for a few minor problems at the bar. Bravo shift is on duty. Most of Alpha shift has left CnC, but some remained to catch up on work. Captain Chirakis never seems to leave. Lt Kenyon is working on countermeasures regarding the virus: how it transports from one area to another and how it can be contained. After honing the skills of the PsiCorps, Captain d’Ka has returned to Missouri. Security remains on high alert. Commander Korjata appears confused. He talks to himself and mutters as he wanders through CnC. Dr Pavilion has returned to duty. She has taken him for a medical and psychological evaluation. Starfleet Command Engineer Jake Wright was transported to the emergency section of the medical complex to be evaluated for brain injury.
  15. Eyes Wide Closed Starfleet Command Engineer Jake Wright slid under the console to check for flaws or areas that could be attacked by the technological virus. Problem was that the console was bigger than most, and a heck of a lot different. Squirming your way under it was a job in itself so Jake left his toolbox on top, planning to slip out, change tools or grab another, then slip in again. But Jake was having a problem focusing lately. In fact, he could hardly control himself. He’d work a little, then his thoughts would shift to a female engineer who passed by occasionally. As a young, single man, you can imagine where his thoughts wandered. He tried to fight them off and focus on his work, but she kept coming back. He just couldn’t get her out of his mind. Damn… she’s... gorgeous. No. She’s more than that. She’s drop dead gorgeous! Tall, lithe, and slender, with immaculate skin. Her uniform pressed tight against her body in the most important places, almost like she wanted to…. No. Not goin’ there. Nope, nope, nope. But damn… here she comes again, walking right past him. Sliding out from under the sturdy, expanded console, Jake completely ignored the console’s frame and smacked his head against it so it almost knocked him out. The sudden movement rattled his toolbox just enough to send it over the side and onto his already bruised head. His shout and the massive thud along with the tools scattering across the decking echoed down the passageway toward SFC Engineer Manny Lopez. Manny looked up from his work and scanned the area. He spotted Jake not exactly in the right position, along with a trickle of red dropping on the deck. "Jake!!” he shouted, running toward him then skidding to a halt. “Gees, man. What the hell were you doing? Heard the thud all the way down the passageway! And you’re bleeding all over the place, man!” Within seconds, two more SFC Engineers jogged in their direction. Mike Jersey, a tactical corpsman before entering engineerhood, grabbed the bulkhead med kit and dropped down next to Jake. “Seeeeit, man,” said Mike, his expression focused as he checked him over, then opened the kit to retrieve the proper gear, noting that Jake's eyes were dilated. “What the hell were you doin’, man?” “Uh… looking at someone?" he replied listlessly. "I think? Or... something? Don’t quite remember.” “Well hold still,” Mike said calmly. “You’re gonna be okay, just gotta stop that bleed so you don’t make a trail all the way to medical. Lopez,” he called without turning. “Get us a transfer to medical, and do it now.” “I’m good, Mike,” Jake insisted, his words slurred. “Seriously. I’m good. I’ll make it to ...” His face paled, and he relaxed against Mike’s leg, trying to catch a breath. “Yeah, right. What the hell were you doin’ anyway, besides checkin’ out the ODN lines?” “Just looking at….” Jake began, wondering what to say. “Uh... just watching this gorgeous… thing. I mean… girl? Woman? Yeah, she was good. As good… might be….” He passed out as the transfer to medical came through. Jake and Mike disappeared. Lopez and SFC Engineer Jim Strickland—aka Strick—stood there, dumbfounded, staring at the somewhat bloody decking for a few minutes, waiting for the cleaning droid. Finally, “We got female engineers?” asked Lopez skeptically. Strick shook his head slowly. “Not with us. But ...” He shrugged. “Maybe the station has some?” “But we’re the only ones working down here, right?” Manny’s brows knit and his eyes swept the area as though he might see ‘this woman’ any minute. “Not down here, man. I mean, if he saw her we should’a seen her.” “Yeah, man. We should’a seen her. But I didn’t. And you didn’t” Another few seconds passed before Strick asked, “He’s not on hooch, right?” “What?” Lopez snorted. “Jake on hooch? He never drinks, except for juices and stuff. You know… vegan.” A long pause, and Lopez shook his head, muttering, “This is gonna be one hellofa report for Commander Drexler.”
