  1. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 20 July 2018 27 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.117 TBS is 30 minutes. The time is 1730 hours (5:30 PM) Aegis local. Midshipman Johnson Kenyon arrived. As Midshipman, he will finish his engineering education under SubCommander Korjata. Captain Ramson has decided to hold off on further transwarp conduit investigations. SubCommander Jorahl will finish his research on the satellite and prep it for storage. The Stone of Gol is the next priority. Lt Cdr Tarisa has begun to explore the properties of the Stone of Gol. Hopefully she will discover the properties used to magnify psychic waves and find a way to disable and/or destroy the stone.

Johnson Kenyon: Yes, Lt Garand told me... I had never heard of CnC before now... all the new acronyms and such. Scott Coleridge: I won't inundate you with names at the moment. I'm sure you'll meet everyone soon enough. That over there is Captain Ramson. ::gently inclines his head:: And that's Captain Chirakis, our chief of security. Chirakis: Regarding the stone that is in the security vault. Are you familiar with its properties? Johnson Kenyon: ::mouthing, Captain Chirakis... chief of security?:: Alexis McFarland: @ OOh, cool. mimipavilion: ::hears a beep and sees that it is the medical information and looks it over:: Scott Coleridge: In approximately 45 seconds you’re going to receive a comm from a Doctor Pavilion, who has some kind of magic access to incoming personnel data, I swear. Tarisa: ::Tilts her head a little as she considers.:: Not entirely, but I have looked at the information. Annisha: @ Perhaps we should get some rest before dinner. Dacia Sandero: Well, they all seem to be resting comfortably now that the sedatives have kicked in. Johnson Kenyon: Magic access, sir? Scott Coleridge: I'm not saying it's witchcraft... Alexis McFarland: @ Mmm. OK. We are kinda resting now though ::smiles:: Jylliene: ::sends a question of what in the world the florist needs with this particular order to the shop owner:: Chirakis: Very well. To deal with this object, we need to gather more information.... mimipavilion: +Kenyon+ Dr. Pavilion to Midshipman Kenyon Annisha: @ When was the last time au were on a planet? Scott Coleridge: ::overhears the comm request, gives a knowing smile:: Chirakis: And for that, you will have to have access to the stone. Does that disturb you? Johnson Kenyon: :::amazed:: +Mimi+ Yes, Doctor Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Watches the new guy :: Tarisa: @ Miana> ::Stands on the bed, tail lashing about.:: Since before I came to the station. mimipavilion: +Kenyon+ When you're done reporting in please report to medical. Johnson Kenyon: +Mimi+ Yes, doctor, I'm not sure when that will be. I don't have quarters yet and I haven't even met another engineer Tarisa: ::Thinks, then shakes head.:: No. I am curious how a stone can cause so much trouble. Scott Coleridge: ::Jylliene, mock whispering:: Since when do we give Midshipmen quarters?? Alexis McFarland: @Same for me. Last planet I was on was Earth shortly before I came to Aegis mimipavilion: +Kenyon+ I understand that, just make sure you come to medical before the end of day. Johnson Kenyon: +Mimi+ Yes, Ma'am Jylliene: ::whispers:: We don't. I've forwarded his bunk assignment. Should be with his standard welcome information. Annisha: @ Mine was that mining place. :: looks somber :: Tarisa: @ Miana> It was Mithra for me. Chirakis: As are we. The good news is that it does not function by itself. The potential bad news is that I am not sure of its composition or how to approach it. I would like you to investigate it. Chirakis: Investigate it as to its composition, that is. Tarisa: ::Nods.:: I understand. Alexis McFarland: @ ::Curious, but notes her sombre emotions, so decides not to press instead finishing off her pink fruit:: Whatever it wasm it was nice, Chirakis: Once we determine the composition, there is a chance that we might be able to disassemble it so it becomes unusable. Scott Coleridge: ::Johnson:: I'll take you to engineering first, introduce you to our chief engineer. Kallah Ramson: ::steps over to ops:: Johnson Kenyon: ::looks at Commander Coleridge:: I'd appreciate it Jylliene: :sends Scott Kenyon's bunk assignment as well, just in case something got lost in the shuffle:: Jylliene: ::glances up at Ramson:: Captain. Chirakis: Lt Garand> :::Scott:: Sir, we have the Midshipman's quarters ready. I can take his bags there. Scott Coleridge: ::nods at Garand:: Thank you. ::Johnson:: Hand over your bags to the Lieutenant, please, and then follow me. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Working working... to many systems on the station working :: Chirakis: Lt Garand> ::takes the bags::: Chirakis: 10:40 PM Johnson Kenyon: ::Coleridge:: Aye. ::to Garand:: thank you Kallah Ramson: Got another bit of clean up work. Send a message to both Romulan transports. Tell the one docked we need it's space and move it to a holding position. Request both send in the proper documents if they plan to extend their stay any longer. Johnson Kenyon: ::Coleridge:: Will I need my orders for the Chief? Tarisa: ::Already begins to think up disposal methods.:: Scott Coleridge: ::Johnson:: Sure, I think one the desk legs is still wonky. Jylliene: Yes ma'am. Johnson Kenyon: ::hearing something about Romulan Transports:: Scott Coleridge: ::enters the TL:: Tarisa: @ Miana> ::plops back down on the bed.:: Chirakis: Whenever you are ready, Commander :::Tarisa:: I will take you down. You will not be left alone, and not for security reasons. For your safety. Johnson Kenyon: ::enters TL:: Jylliene: Anything else for them? Tarisa: ::Nods.:: Of course. I am ready. Scott Coleridge: ::TL:: Engineering. Chirakis: Lt Garand> :::waiting for the captain to finish with Kital:: Chirakis: Very well. Come with me. Johnson Kenyon: ::to Coleridge:: How long have you served on Aegis, sir? Kallah Ramson: No, just don't let them doddle. They can float out there as long as they want, I just want them out of our way. Scott Coleridge: ::Johnson:: Let's put it this way … I started right where you are. Tarisa: ::Follows Chirakis.:: Chirakis: ::steps to the command lift::: Jylliene: ::grins:: Yes ma'am. Annisha: @ :: Someone on the cargo vessel enters the cargo room with three plates :: Something from the mess. :: looks at all three of them before leaving the room :: Tarisa: ::Joins her on the lift.:: Alexis McFarland: @Yay thanks Johnson Kenyon: You make Commander from this Station? Scott Coleridge: ((Oooh, Tarisa gets to ride in the posh lift)) Chirakis: ::Hands her a separate set of credentials:: Wear these at all times when you are in that area of security. Tarisa: @ Miana> Yay! Johnson Kenyon: I was told I'd have to transfer a dozen times for that time of promotion Chirakis: (of course) Tarisa: ((woo!)) Jylliene: ::preps the messages, including the desired location for the docked vessel:: Scott Coleridge: Yes, well, it wasn't my id… er, I mean, you'll find that crew on Aegis tends be transient or fairly... settled. Tarisa: ::Takes the credentials, looking at them.:: Chirakis: Lt Garand> ::waiting for Jylliene to finish up:: Scott Coleridge: I was assigned to a starship right out of the Academy and ended up on Aegis rather by accident. Then I was transferred here, to engineering. Chirakis: ::the lift stops and they step out exactly inside security, close to her office::: Jylliene: ::sends both:: Johnson Kenyon: I'm not sure what you mean, but it's nice to know I could make one place home Alexis McFarland: @ ::looks at the plates of food, take one of them to a table:: Johnson Kenyon: Ah, so, you came back to Aegis after a while Kallah Ramson: ::steps back to the command console:: Jylliene: ::glances over to Lieutenant Garand:: May I help you? Scott Coleridge: ::rueful laugh:: I think I spent about four weeks on that first posting before I ended up on Aegis. Chirakis: ::the voice print recognizes her and the door opens:: Computer, recognize Commander Tarisa, who will be working in here. Chirakis: Computer> Recognized. Tarisa: ::Ears flick at the new sounds that she isn't used to.:: I believe this may be my first time in Security. Scott Coleridge: So you could say that this station, in some ways, is all I've really known… though if you're lucky, there are definitely opportunities for away missions. Chirakis: Lt Garand> ::steps up to Jylliene::: Ma'am, the Midshipman's quarters, please. Jylliene: ((Define "lucky")) Johnson Kenyon: Away missions would be nice, but I think I will need to prove myself useful first Chirakis: ::nods::: And you are one of the few who have entered. Scott Coleridge: ::steps out of the TL:: Welcome to the engineering deck. Main engineering is here, just through those doors. There are labs and other subsystem control rooms throughout this deck, with major system junctions throughout this entire section. You'll find it's quieter down here, since this is not a civilian-approved area. But during the busy hours, like now, it hums about as much as a starship's engineering room. Chirakis: The vault is secured. Please pick a station and I will bring you the stone. Johnson Kenyon: ::exits the TL, all smiles:: Tarisa: ::Nods as she takes a seat.:: Scott Coleridge: ::leads Johnson into the main engineering room, which is populated by a number of engineers, both Starfleet and some of the Romulan volunteers:: Johnson Kenyon: ::taking it all in:: Scott Coleridge: Did you read your personnel brief, Midshipman? Chirakis: 10:50 PM Johnson Kenyon: ::looks at Coleridge:: Personnel brief. I'm afraid I didn't know about that Jylliene: I sent it with the usual welcome information, but... Johnson Kenyon: Was it sent to me? Jylliene: ::looks:: Alexis McFarland: @Hmm, tube roots ::bites into one:: Jylliene: Here we go. Second berth, third bunk room. Chirakis: Lt Garand> The midshipman's quarters assignment, ma'am, so I can deliver his bags. Chirakis: Lt Garand> Thank you, ma'am. Tarisa: @ Miana> ::Sniffs before taking a small bite.:: Scott Coleridge: You should have received the name of your commanding officer, SubCommander tr'Korjata... Johnson Kenyon: <<very generous, Kital>> Kallah Ramson: ACTION> docked Romulan transport signals compliance and begins uncoupling. Transport in holding position turns and begins moving away from Aegis, through the exit corridor out of the asteroid field. Jylliene: Ah, I'm sorry. I thought you meant that he needed it. ::grins:: Jylliene: Very welcome, Lieutenant. Scott Coleridge: As the name and rank implies, he is a Romulan. Chirakis: Lt Garand> ::turns and enters the lift::: Johnson Kenyon: SubCommander tr'Korjata... a Romulan? Chirakis: ::returns with the stone in a box and sets it in front of Tarisa::: Jylliene: <<Well, they were gonna have ya on a bedroll in the cargo bay, but I thought that was just a little too harsh>> Scott Coleridge: ::gestures at the very diverse, even by Federation standards, engineering crew:: You'll find that one of Sky Harbor Aegis' distinctions is that we're more than just a Starfleet crew. Johnson Kenyon: <<LOL>> Tarisa: ::Looks at the box a moment.:: Can I open it? Chirakis: Of course. I doubt that it will be a problem in here. If you would like to take a sample, please do. I will not function unless the stone is intact. Scott Coleridge: We've taken on quite a few Romulans with engineering and scientific backgrounds following what happened to Romulus. Kallah Ramson: ::looks up at the blip on the screen moving off:: Johnson Kenyon: He's the chief engineer? Scott Coleridge: We also work closely with civilian miners in the asteroid belt in this system. Jylliene: Looks like the vessels are moving in compliance. Jylliene: ::to Ramson:: Scott Coleridge: Yes, he is. Scott Coleridge: ::looking around:: In fact, I thought he would be here … Jylliene: ...or leaving altogether. Hm. Chirakis: I will remain with you, as a precaution. Johnson Kenyon: Well, I shall do my best Jylliene: ::shrugs slightly to Ramson:: Scott Coleridge: He's probably just making sure all the new crewman booby traps are reset... Nijil tr'Korjata: (Where is here?) Jylliene: Guess they figured it was time once we said something? Scott Coleridge: ::shakes his head:: It's a shame Captain Ramson made us get rid of the piranha pool. Johnson Kenyon: ::chuckles:: I get it... Scott Coleridge: ((Main engineering)) Alexis McFarland: @ ::Smiles and eats her food, used to it since she visits Annisha's place so often:: Chirakis: (Right, Scott. It was your favorite swimming hole.) Chirakis: 10:55 PM Kallah Ramson: Make sure traffic is cleared. If they ever come around again we'll slap a fine for unregistered course change, but for now let them go. Jylliene: ::nods:: Yes ma'am. Tarisa: ::Carefully opens the box, looking at the stone for a moment. She then closes the lid.:: I understand. :;She takes a PADD and begins thinking out a list.:: I will need a few things. Jylliene: ::checking incoming/outgoing and ensuring the route is clear:: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Encounters some new human :: Chirakis: ::nods:: Of course. Nijil tr'Korjata: Oh, wait.

Johnson Kenyon: Midshipman Kenyon reporting Tarisa: @ Miana> :;Slowly eats, still a little unsure of the food.:: Scott Coleridge: ::Nijil:: This is Midshipman Kenyon. I think he has paperwork if you like that sort of thing. I've been told it's good for me, but I'm trying to kick the habit, personally. Scott Coleridge: See, I told you I would get you a fresh victim. Fletcher Jackson: ::can't restrain himself any longer and grabs a donut:: Scott Coleridge: Er, crewperson. Johnson Kenyon: ::half smiles, trying to see how the Romulan acts:: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Extends his hand :: tr'Korjata, but it's just Korjata, but people call me Nijil....or clumsy. Jylliene: ::thus reminded, checks to make sure the bakery's supply requests have been approved:: Tarisa: ::Finishes the list.:: Johnson Kenyon: ::shakes hand:: I'll be happy to serve under you Chirakis: ::waits patiently:: Nijil tr'Korjata: I would say I run a...'tight ship' but this is a station. Chirakis: 10:58 PM Johnson Kenyon: ::trying to remember how to pronounce, Korjata:: Nijil tr'Korjata: What are your specialities? Scott Coleridge: Wonderful. I'll let you take it from here. Welcome, again, Midshipman. Johnson Kenyon: I don't have any at the moment, but I am quick study Scott Coleridge: Don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions. Johnson Kenyon: I will :: to Scott Coleridge:: Tarisa: Would you prefer someone get the items for me for security sake, or can I get them? Johnson Kenyon: ::sir:: Chirakis: (last words) Nijil tr'Korjata: Oh, au shall get the course on Rihan runabouts... in this case the Nei'rrh. mimipavilion: ::groans over all the reports:: Johnson Kenyon: ::unsure of what Korjata just said:: Chirakis: You can get the items yourself, but you may not take the stone from this area. When you leave, I will place it back in the vault. Tarisa: ::Nods.:: Annisha: @ :: Yawns :: These darn lights. Chirakis: Very well. Alexis McFarland: @ There are four lights. Scott Coleridge: ::takes his leave of engineering:: Kind of miss the place. Tarisa: @ Miana> ::Giggles.:: Tell them to shut off. Chirakis: When I secure the stone, I will escort you from this area.

Sometimes it is slow, sometimes it moves quickly. Johnson Kenyon: Thanks Chirakis: Captain, TBS? Kallah Ramson: let's just go with a few minutes. Mimi needs her chance to torment the midshipman. Dacia Sandero: lol Chirakis: Ah... of course. mimipavilion: ::evil grin:: Tarisa: You can't deny her! Johnson Kenyon: I thought that was the Romulan's job Chirakis: Shall we make it 30, so Nijil can have a moment with him? Dacia Sandero: No. You can't Johnson Kenyon: first anyway Kallah Ramson: ::nods:: Chirakis: TBS is 30 minutes. Any words for the crew? Kallah Ramson: none Chirakis: Commander Coleridge, anything from you? Scott Coleridge: Nope Chirakis: Questions or words from the crew? Nijil tr'Korjata: Has anyone lost a midshipman before? Asking for a friend. Johnson Kenyon: <<chuckles>> mimipavilion: Can't say that I have Chirakis: Yes, actually. The person who lost him did not last long. We found a suitable airlock for him to occupy. Johnson Kenyon: ::imagines being pushed into a plasma conduit:: Scott Coleridge: We expect receipts, Mr. tr'Korjata. Chirakis: Anything else? Tarisa: Ndak lost numerous ones when we still had academies. Chirakis: Yes. NDak was expert at that. Johnson Kenyon: Do people write logs in this SIM? Chirakis: Yes. Dacia Sandero: Yes, but cadets were expendable Nijil tr'Korjata: I have ideas... Chirakis: Not as often as they should. :::eyes everyone:: But there are a few who do regularly. Tarisa: ::cough:: Chirakis: So, yes, please feel free to write a log. Post it on the message board and we will all take a look. mimipavilion: ::looks at a Padd:: Chirakis: Commander Tarisa? Tarisa: No no, I'm good. Chirakis: Or was that a comment? Chirakis: Anything else? Chirakis: Very well... Chirakis: Crew dismissed. Be well. Be Safe. Don’t forget your towel.
  3. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 13 July 2018 27 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.117 TBS is 2 hours. The time is 1600 hours (4:00 PM) Aegis local. As the station settles to a more normal pace, Johnson Kenyon arrives as Midshipman Recruit/Engineering. He will study under SubCommander Korjata. Meanwhile, Cdr Cayne and Cpt Chirakis are plowing through information on V’Mal’s accomplices. Cayne identified two of the six and Chirakis identified one, leaving three unknowns. The one identified by Cpt Chirakis was a protege of Ragor Tal, a brilliant racketeer whose modus operandi is to pit one leader against another, create a void through chaos and infighting, then move in and take over. The other accomplices seem to be minor profiteers. The Stone of Gol still resides in a high security vault. SubCommander Jorahl is still inspecting the satellite that was recovered by Adriatic. Whether we decide to further investigate what appears to be the Lore Kings’ transwarp conduit remains to be seen.
  4. =/\= Aegis Mission Brief 7/6/18 - 10:06 PM=/\= 27 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.117 TBS is 6 hours. The time is 1300 hours (1:00 pm) Aegis local. Aegis is settling down to normal.

Annisha: :: Arrives at the dock :: Lawliet: ....... ::stunned:: Chirakis: ::gives him a firm handshake::: Congratulations, Commander Lawliet. Alexis McFarland: ::smiles at Miana:: Ah, I was going to ask who she was. Dacia says my parents want to have a security detail for me too, so I know what you mean. I think some Starfleet security dudes will tag along with me as well. Kallah Ramson: Promotions, bah! Nothing but paperwork. ::frown:: You'll probably want a celebration party too. Who do you think has to clear the funding for that?! ::sulks.:: Chirakis: Indeed. Too much paperwork. However, we do have Commander Coleridge for that, Captain. Alexis McFarland: Not that I'll know. Dacia said they were plain-clothed to avoid suspicion or something Lawliet: ::looks back at Ramson and back at Chirkis:: I...I don't know really what to say. Dacia Sandero: (yay grats Lawliet!) mimipavilion: (woot woot)) Chirakis: No words are needed, Commander. You performed admirably, and Starfleet Command agrees. Kallah Ramson: That's right! I forgot. I have to deal with the Admirals.... but he's stuck wrangling all the minions. ::jumps up:: Excellent. Alexis McFarland: Oh yeah, I think I saw her when you had that tummy ache Chirakis: ::chuckles::: Alexis McFarland: Nice to meet you. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Checks his PADD :: They are at warp still.

Lawliet: ::returns shake:: Jylliene: ((I commed and said it docked)) Alexis McFarland: ::hugs Miana:: Mmm..::smiles:: Nijil tr'Korjata: (Oh, sorry, I was being talked to) Chirakis: And you will have to reorder the workload for your second, Lt Cdr Tarisa.

No other updates. Amanda Davis PhD: The brain damage that Ensign Lauren sustained is not really "damage" per se.

Au are taller. mimipavilion: ::nods:: Lawliet: ::walks over to Tarisa:: You have a moment Commander? Chirakis: ::nod:: Excellent.

I would like to suggest that you watch her closely, and anyone else who is experiencing these symptoms. Nijil tr'Korjata: Rihan Woman> These are your friends and... :: looks :: other guests that are coming along. Tarisa: Miana> ::Still behind Alexis.:: mimipavilion: ::nods:: Jylliene: It will be quiet when the girls leave. Amanda Davis PhD: I would begin with simple analgesics.

Kallah Ramson: ::a secure message beeps into her padd:: Alexis McFarland: Yes, I am. Jolan truu...uuu.. Tarisa: ((What you don't know, is we keep the other children in check. Now they will be running wild. )) Lawliet: Long story short...I just received a promotion. While technically I'm still the Chief Science Officer, I'll be taking on other responsibilities. To that effect, you will be taking a more active role in this department. Chirakis: (really. Then the other children had better stay away from Chirakis) Dacia Sandero: ::talking with one of the other Romulans:: Tarisa: ((lol)) Dacia Sandero: (lol) Amanda Davis PhD: I will have to consult with physicians who are well versed in this type of injury before moving to more than analgesics .

Alexis McFarland: ::pets Miana:: Nijil tr'Korjata: Rihan Woman> We are scheduled to leave in about an hour. We are dropping off supplies and taking some on. An inspection then we are on our way.

To be blunt I'm not sure when you'll become head of the department, but I'd start preparing yourself. That day is closer than you think. Chirakis: 10:58 PM Jylliene: ::TL to the docking ring:: mimipavilion: ::nods:: Tarisa: ::Ears lower for a moment at the thought.:: Amanda Davis PhD: But, I would not leave her alone.

Dacia Sandero: Yay Chirakis: I must say that we seldom promote to full Commander. It is a privilege, and well deserved. And it involves a lot of paperwork on his part. ::grin:: Lawliet: lol Chirakis: Which means... that he gets to fill in for Scott when Scott is gone.

Chirakis: TBS is 2 hours. Words for the crew? Kallah Ramson: none Chirakis: Words from the crew, beginning with Dergin. Chirakis: I am the GM, but I am not the commanding officer of Aegis. Chirakis: My character is Chief of Security. Chirakis: Captain Ramson is in command of Aegis. Commander Coleridge is second in command. Chirakis: And the reason for that is personal preference on my part. Chirakis: Does that answer the question? Dergin: Interesting Chirakis: Other questions from the crew? Chirakis: Crew dismissed. Be well. Be Safe. Don’t forget your towel.
  5. Far From Over Cayne & Chirakis Bustling crowds filled the commerce deck as soon as station lockdown ended. Of the hundreds who crammed the lifts and stairs, only a few questioned the reason for lockdown. In fact, most didn't seem to care as long as they could browse, shop, or enjoy their favorite restaurants. Above them, along the mezzanine, plain clothes security personnel wandered among civilians or relaxed at tables that conveniently overlooked strategic areas. Kirel stepped from the lift and paused briefly. A few children who caught her eye waved excitedly. Kirel merely nodded in return, knowing that the older children placed bets on the number of times she waved. Though Aegis offered a variety of amenities, it was still a space station, and, as children everywhere, they needed more distractions than Aegis offered. Such naivete, thought Kirel as she began a slow, measured pace down the stairway and into the crowd. For the most part, civilians on station led sheltered lives, trusting explicitly in the station’s defenses and command team to keep them safe. They had no idea how close they had come to disaster. As for Kirel, Captain Ramson’s words would last way beyond the situation’s resolution. “Officially,” Ramson had said, “V'Mal is an agent compromised by a Vulcan isolationist he was investigating. A rogue agent working on his own. Officially this event is over and all that's left for Command is to pick up V’Mal and Mason and her crew. “But this is far from over. “In private I am being told to to stay on alert,” Ramson continued. “There's more going on than one lone agent. Command is still trying to figure out what's going on. They cleared Mason's mission but no one remembers why.” Kirel wound her way through the crowd, stopping only occasionally for congenial discourse, before entering the security complex to call Commander Cayne. “We have much to discuss,” where her only words, as no others were necessary. They shared the same concerns: the Stone of Gol, V’Mal’s collaborators, and the Lore Kings’ transwarp conduit, to name a few. Hopefully they could formulate at least one plan. “Commander,” she said, hearing the faint swish of her office door. “Make yourself comfortable. This could take a while.” "Do I need a carafe of coffee this time or will a large mug do?" He said jokingly, though with a sliver of truth. “Take the entire station’s supply if you need it,” she replied as she pulled up a screen on the main console. Only three lines appeared: Collaborators, Stone of Gol, and Conduit. "I am back at my early Academy days, presentations being the hallmark…. I'm guessing the first two are related more directly?" “Does it strike you that they are related?” She turned to face him, her expression serious but not to the point of being dire. "I'm guessing the stone was V'Mal's main instrument second only to those that helped him. They had to help him get it, but once he had it their mission was a whole magnitude easier." He brought his arm up to his face as though there was a cup is his hand. He became irked once he realized he was daydreaming non-existent cups of coffee. Kirel waved a hand toward the carafe. “Coffee, Commander. Then I have a list we must consider.” 'Yes please, before I eat my hand." He paused. "This a to-do list?" “A list of V’Mal’s accomplices... from V’Mal, via Major Butts.” Half-turning in his direction, she gave a slight grin and threw a list of names onto the screen, adding. “He was very persuasive. Do you recognize any of these names?” Cayne peered at the screen as if he was an old man seeing a hologram for the first time. "Hmm, I think two of those I have seen before, but… I'd have to get more information before I can tell you why I know them." He tapped the two names to highlight them. “Where you know them from will do, Commander, and why they might be accomplices. Do not worry about your security level. It jumped a few levels as soon as you came to Aegis through October.” She waited. He seemed hesitant, though judging from his squint, it could have been his age. “So which ones do you know and why could they have become accomplices?” She studied his highlighted names. "The first one has no serious infractions, just so many of them. Mostly theft, but nothing violent. Not sure they shared V'Mal's vision, only profit. Hmm, I guess profit, not prophet," he quipped, spelling out the last word. "The second name may have agreed with V'Mal, but I believe she moved to whatever vision suited her." “Vision?” "Philosophy... how she thinks the universe should work? I have not met her, only read. I think she may have intelligence community ties. Will need to investigate that." “Indeed.” Kirel stepped back from the screen. “For now, considering this list, we have recognition and possible cause. Personally, I see one lieutenant of Ragor Tal—and I am sure that you have had more than a few run-ins with him. Of the other two, I am not sure, and neither registers as ‘wanted’. However, there are ways to get around that.” After a moment of thought, she faced him. “The Stone is secure for the moment. Our focus will be on this list. You take your few and I will take mine and the unknowns. Can you think of anything else we should address immediately?” "Just get our security team together as soon as possible...I can speak to Gila, if she passes." “Commander, Ensign Gila should be the least of your worries, but if you must, you must. Remember that this is Classified Sensitive Compartmentalized Information.” Cayne nodded. "Right. I have to speak with her on other matters, and will perform my own evaluation. Nothing mentioned here today."
  6. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 6 July 2018 27 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.117 TBS is 6 hours. The time is 1300 hours (1:00 PM) Aegis local. Things are slowly settling down to normal. Command still has a few things to clean up: the status of the satellite that SubCommander Jorahl is examining at the shipyard; the Stone of Gol that still resides in the security vault; and the mental stability of several security officers who were affected by V’Mal’s psychic episodes.
  7. =/\= Aegis Mission Brief 6/29/18=/\= 27 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.117 TBS is 15 hours. The time is 0600 hours (6:00 am) Aegis local. V'Mal is en route to a correctional facility.

  8. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 29 June 2018 27 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.117 TBS is 15 hours. The time is 0600 hours (6:00 AM) Aegis local. The Vulcan, V’Mal, is on his way to a correction facility aboard a runabout that is “specifically insulated for the psi-powerful. Unfortunately we still have the Stone of Gol and Sick Bay is still dealing with a few who were affected by V’Mal’s attack. All departments are collaborating on a plan against psychic attacks. Meanwhile, the Lore Kings’ conduit is an ever-present concern.
  9. You can outrun the devil if you try. Ethan Neufeld and Chirakis Kirel Kirel watched the runabout fade in the distance. Its pilot, Major Harold Butts, was in reality Commander Ethan Neufeld, SI-6. Yes, he worked within the same organization as Commander Cayne, but that one would not recognize the other was normal in their line of work. SI-6 operatives seldom worked in teams, and they take great care to mask their true identities. She last saw him on Aegis when it was a Jovian class space station. He was sitting in the lower deck lounge with his head buried in a newspaper. Their eyes met once as she passed, but neither one greeted the other. How did she recognize him? She would not jeopardize his cover to reveal that. How did they come to know each other? ‘Tis a long story, and best left alone. She knew him by many names. He wore many disguises and spoke many languages. Such was the life in SI-6: a long string of covert, clandestine, and black operations. Those operations were a part of her life once, but SI-5’s main focus was watching, gathering information, and passing the information on. Did she ever overstep her bounds? Of course. Did they ever call her on it? Once or twice, but only as a reminder. When the runabout mysteriously vanished, Kirel chuckled inwardly. Were it up to her, V’Mal would be taken apart slowly, piece by piece, and kept alive as long as possible. But torture serves no purpose. No desperately needed information would come from it. And she was not tasked with V’Mal’s demise; Neufeld would have that honor. He could be consolingly tender, but he could also be a terrifyingly brutal interrogator. His time with V’Mal would definitely be the latter, and Kirel had no desire to witness it. * * * * * V’Mal woke in a stupor, scarcely able to comprehend the searing that crept up his arm. He heard a whistle and then a hand stung the side of his face. “No time for sleep, V’Mal. We have a lot to talk about.” The Vulcan blinked, head wobbling as he struggled to focus in the foggy vice that gripped his brain. Moments ago, he remembered thinking the merciful end was near. Somewhere beneath layers of Vulcan discipline, he felt dread join a swelling stream of confusion. He still lived, bound to the same rigid metal chair from the first day, excruciatingly stiff and stinking. The scenery hadn’t changed much after he passed out—aside from the catheter securely taped to the crook of his elbow. He blearily watched condensation from the fluid-filled bag next to his head drip on the floor, wondering what cocktail could possibly create such a fire in his veins. That it contained a slightly chilled mixture of dextrose and saline—just enough to rouse him—was immaterial. The result was the same. He looked up at the sound of water sloshing and instinctively clicked his mouth as he watched the man he knew as “Harry” selfishly empty another bottle of water. A dozen glittering bottles of water filled every corner of the compartment, but he hadn’t tasted a single drop in several days. How his burning, sticky tongue thirsted for just a splash, and the nauseated knot of his stomach twisted for a crumb of food. The man hadn’t given him a single second of reprieve from the suppression field. He lifted dry eyes to the overhead of bright, unremitting lights craving mercy, but pressed his lips tightly, determined that his body would surrender first. “Hmm,” Harry hummed nonchalantly, unfazed. “Still shy?” V’Mal winced as the man raked the second chair across the uncovered decking and planted in front of him within arm’s length. Harry strummed a D-minor on a decidedly human instrument, letting the chord hang in a way that snagged even V’Mal’s attention. Harry had deprived him of the basic food, water, sleep, decency, and space. This was a new invasion on the vestiges of his inner peace, and V’Mal felt a pang when he realized he had given the man the exact reaction he wanted. “I can hear what you’re thinking,” Harry began strumming again, staring pointedly at him. “All your doubts and fears. And if you look in my eyes, in time you’ll find the reason I’m here. “And in time all things shall pass away. In time, you may come back someday—” a dramatic pause; then, “To live once more or die once more. But in time, your time will be no more.” Harry let the chords hang once more, the hint of an infuriating expression on his face. V’Mal clamped his eyes shut, wrestling to settle a starved body and mind on the cold curiosity of the man who used his talents in this way. But he found the thought too difficult to hold. “You know your days are numbered. Count ‘em one by one—like notches in the handle of an outlaw’s gun. You can outrun the devil if you try. But you’ll never outrun the hands of time. “In time, there’ll surely come a day. In time, all things shall pass away. In time, you may come back, some say. Live once more or die once more. But in time, your time will be no more.” Fear wedged in V’Mal’s mind on the final refrain: from the look in the man’s eyes he began to believe it was true. “I can hear what you’re thinking…” __________________________________ Collie, Mark. “In Time.” The Punisher: The Album

  11. Security Drills & PsiCorps Cayne & Chirakis Anomalous cerebral dominance is important to psychic ability because this implies a more developed right side of the brain, which is from where psychic ability appears to arise. Specifically, in telepathy studies, the greatest activation occurred in the right parahippocampal gyrus. In addition, the corpus callosum, (the connection between the two sides of the brain) are enlarged in right brained people. Closing her eyes against the information overload, Kirel pinched the bridge of her nose to quell a growing headache. Usually, the quiet seclusion of her office allowed her to think more clearly. Not this time. The more she read, the more respect she gained for medical personnel. Taking a deep breath, she realized that, at this point, her primary focus should be on the station's safety, and not on the minutia regarding telepathy and/or psychic ability. She blanked the screen. Commander Coleridge called for a plan that will lower response times, create concrete duty stations, increase the number of station drills, and prevent psychic attacks. Response times depended on several factors, and they were always an issue, especially when civilians were concerned. All security teams drilled twice a week. No one drill was ever the same, meaning that the situation always differed. Were children involved? Families? Pets? Explosive materials? Was station evacuation required? Were we attacked from within? From without? Bombarded by rogue asteroids? The list never ended. Each department—engineering, science, medical, maintenance, etc.—was drilled once a month. Every civilian area as well, especially the commerce deck during closed hours, with security personnel posing as patrons. And yet, there had to be a better way. Concrete duty stations? A few were located at strategic points, but for the most part security teams wandered throughout the station, and often in plain clothes. For security to be confined to duty stations was actually more of a hazard than an asset. It would allow intruders to pinpoint guarded areas… and unguarded areas. Surely she misunderstood the commander. Preventing psychic attacks? Now, there was something she could deal with, but she would leave the specifics of telepathy and telepathic powers to medical. At the moment, the Vulcan, V’Mal, remained sedated, in high-security confinement, and under 24 hour guard. Some would have called that brutal and unnecessary. In her mind, it was no more brutal than what the Vulcan had doled out to the crew of USS Mason and the security team, many of whom had gone insane. The Stone of Gol was another matter. As per legend, the stone was destroyed by the Vulcan gods. In reality, during the Time of Awakening the stone was broken into three pieces and was scattered over large distances of space. Apparently it was not scattered far enough. Were it up to her, she would smash the stone into a million tiny pieces and scatter them into the suns of a million worlds. Or perhaps she should grind it to a fine powder and lace his food with it. Although… that might backfire and make him more powerful. When the image of Commander Cayne appeared on the viewscreen, she pressed the door’s security release. Commander Wyatt Cayne walked into her office with the same look he always maintained since arriving on Aegis: Just one more cup of coffee. In reality his existence mirrored a nomad, wandering between slumber and wakefulness. He never was in either for very long, and if he was he'd not be able to tell. "I hope you did not take my jab at the size of this station as a personal insult Captain Chirakis, but this place is pretty big," he quipped. "Perhaps that is why the station is such a target. Like many planets, the size allows less savory entities to hide. I can only imagine what acts are planned here for execution elsewhere." She eyed him in silent agreement. Cayne looked for the closest place to sit down. At his age standing for long hours took a toll on his feet, and the rest of him. He clutched his trusty PADD as ideas were far easier to write down than remember. As he sat he opened his personal journal at the list of old man ideas. “I did not consider your comment a jab or an insult, Commander,” Kirel replied. “It is the truth, and something that we must deal with soon. And let us hope that the powers that be understand our situation and will honor our request for funding.” She stood, inhaling deeply, and began the slow pace that helped her think. “What Commander Coleridge has asked us to do will be a long, involved process, Commander. It will definitely demand coffee. So please....” She flicked a hand toward the coffee brewer, a gift from Dr. Davis. “You seem to thrive on the brew. And while you are at it, bring one to me. Very dark. Black. We have much to accomplish.” While Cayne gathered enough energy to stand and move in that direction, the captain tapped her desktop, instantly regretting it. An imposing list of directives appeared on the wall viewscreen. Some tasks were assigned to medical, some to science, and a lengthy list for security and engineering. Cayne returned, she took the mug with a nod, then turned back to the screen. “Where should we begin?” "I'd wager we should clean up that mess from earlier." He gestured as he sat. "I never even got his name, but I suppose 'bad guy' is all I needed." After a sip. "We still have him?" “We do,” she replied with a hint of frustration. “His name is V’Mal of Vulcan, but there are many others I would gladly tag him with.” Cayne laughed. "Everytime I think of a place to shove someone off to I think of Rura Penthe, but as fun at that is to ask the Klingons for help, I'm not sure I want Mister V'Mal making friends with desperate criminals." Cayne sipped again, remembering to add more sugar next time. "We can't really keep him on the station, too dangerous. However if we wish to know exactly where he is at all times...wait, moving him is risky as well," he ended with a huff. “Unfortunately, the decision is out of our hands,” Kirel replied, topping off her cup. “What else do you have?” "I'm of the opinion that we should prepare for disasters here on Aegis based on likelihood. Psychic attacks are certainly something we should consider as part of a whole package of preparedness." He moved his hands as if holding a box in front of him. "We have had plenty of what I would call conventional attacks where ships attack the station. In the same vein we, by training, have done pretty well with those incursions. Let me see, what other attacks...." Cayne became lost in his thoughts as he looked for his next list item. The captain held up a hand, putting her mug aside to lean against her desk, arms crossed. “Instead of moving on to other attacks, I would like to consider the psychic attacks. Have you any ideas?” "Well, our telepathic members onboard are either going to be our strength or weakness. An attack could target them specifically or the only defense against those like myself with no real ability." He frowned. “On the other hand,” the captain interrupted, adjusting to a more relaxing position, “we did have a sizable number in security who did quite well during the Vulcan’s attack. What if we create a PsiCorps, beginning with those in security who have already displayed their ability.” "Sounds like a good idea. We may wish to offer a form of training to anyone with helpful abilities. Medical should be able to help us screen those in security and beyond. Can we contact Betazed or Vulcan for any training they already have?" The captain looked somewhat skeptical while she considered that for several minutes. Then, “We need to tread lightly, Commander. We must consider the consequences of approaching civilians. If we decide to move forward with the PsiCorps and word gets out that we have one, the PsiCorps could come under attack and present us with more of a danger than a protection. “Taking that into consideration….” She paused to pace for a moment, then stopped at her desk. “The Corps must be chosen carefully… so carefully, in fact, that they will not even know we are testing them. They will be vetted to Starfleet Intelligence standards. When we have a sizable group, the chosen will be read into the project. Their uniforms will not be marked. No one will know that they are set apart from the others, except for the chosen few, the two of us, Captain Ramson, and Commander Coleridge. The name “PsiCorps” will never be spoken.” Her gaze fixed on him questioningly. "You want this more of a Black Ops division rather than out in the open." “Not Black. Clandestine. Everything will be done quietly and not out in the open.” Cayne nodded simply and took another sip of his now warm coffee. "How would we run a drill with our PsiCorps? Guess we could have a large enough team to split them up and pit them against each other." “It’s a bit premature to consider training drills, Commander. I have not even suggested the program to Captain Ramson. If Captain Ramson agrees to this proposal, we would move on to vetting, then recruiting. It will be a delicate process because if any of the chosen opt out of participation, we could have a problem on our hands. So, we must tread lightly.” She paced for a few minutes more, then stopped and turned to face him. “Thoughts, Commander?” "The vetting process will indeed take a long time and we need interviews with those of our security team as a starting point. Medical evaluations as well." “Medical and psychological. With the assistance of Drs Pavilion and Sandero. And I doubt that the vetting process will take long since we already have our security team vetted beyond Starfleet standards. And I know them very well; our security cameras serve a dual purpose.” She raised a brow. “Is there something else, Commander? You seem distracted.” "Yeah, you'd be right." He exhaled. "It's about Officer Orrak. I have a history with her that goes back to the latter half of the Dominion war. For months I worked closely with her as her superior before I had to make a hasty exit." He looked up. "So that was it, or so I thought. Then she arrived on Aegis." He drank the rest of his coffee in one gulp. "She's very observant and her facial expressions are bordering on her putting pieces together. Eventually she will have a complete picture. I don't believe she has ties to Cardassia any longer, but I need to make sure she does not get word back that I was undercover there. Pretty sure our avenues of entry are still in operation, but her figuring it out could be a problem. To that end I've sent a request to Starfleet Intelligence for a non-disclosure package." Kirel considered that a while, waiting to be sure he was finished. “Then you would have her sign the non-disclosure agreement and tell her who you are?” "Unless they say otherwise yes." “And I would say that is a wise choice, Commander. However, you seem not only distracted, but disturbed. Are you aware of her entire background?” "As much as she has reported to us and can be collaborated." “Then, allow me to enlighten you.” Kirel slipped into a chair next to him and relaxed. “I would venture to say that some time after you left Cardassia she changed sides. And what I am to tell you further, I must ask you to keep top secret, understood?” "I can sign and NDA," he smiled. "Understood Captain." “I will take your word, Commander. If you break it, there is a very hungry air lock that would enjoy your presence.” She returned his smile. “But to the point….” “You are aware that she was a lieutenant in the Cardassian Elite Guard, but you might not be aware that she was highly decorated: twice for valor, once for injury in the line of duty, and above all, she had been awarded the elusive Golden Emblem for Gallantry. “Not long after the beginning of the Dominion War, SI-6 marked her for recruiting. She had become a turncoat to the Cardassians because of what she witnessed at the top levels. Given her expertise and experience, I would be very surprised if she did not already know who you are. However, if she has not put the pieces together, it is very possible that she will soon, but I doubt that she would speak of it, unless she approaches you privately. “That said, I suggest that you follow through on your idea of non-disclosure, and I will gladly be your witness. A simple precaution.”

I think that we've just become very used to physical attacks on the station and responding to those imminent threats of damage. This kind of soft, psychic attack just isn't something we were really prepared for. I'd like to see our response times decrease and have some more concrete duty stations and standard responses for this type of occurrence.

Alexis McFarland: ::heads over to Annisha's quarters and presses the chime:: Chirakis: ::stops there, awaiting his response:: Scott Coleridge: Right, and I didn't mean to suggest that this should be an all-encompassing project. Chirakis: 10:58 PM Fletcher Jackson: ::accommodations... accommodations... accommodations... bingo!:: Scott Coleridge: Rather, I just wanted to broach the subject of holding these drills and exploring some better responses to the situation. And I want to give you the latitude to determine the appropriate intensity of the drills as you see fit. Chirakis: Thank you, Commander. mimipavilion: ::yawns and stretches:: Chirakis: (last words) Alexis McFarland: ::presses chime again:: Are you still sleeping Annisha?

Words from the crew? Chirakis: Seeing none.. Chirakis: Crew dismissed. Be well. Be Safe. Don’t forget your towel.
  14. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 15 June 2018 26 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.116 TBS is 24 hours. The time is 0700 hours (7:00 AM) Aegis local. The past 24 hours have been uneventful: a rarity for Aegis. Of course, we still have the Vulcan V’Mal in high security, the Stone of Gol in a high security vault, and two RSE ships waiting for word from Romulan High Command—or just waiting. Starfleet is en route to pick up USS Mason and her crew. While everyone else is slowly returning to normalcy, Captain Ramson, Commander Coleridge, and Captain Chirakis have too many unanswered questions. Was V’Mal working with others, and if so, with whom? What will happen to the Stone of Gol? Why does Starfleet Command have no record or memory of approving USS Mason’s mission to Aegis. In essence, this situation is far from over. As the sim begins, things are quiet on the station. It is Tuesday and the children are scrambling to get to school before they earn demerits, Captain Ramson and Commander Coleridge have had a fairly good rest, and the commerce deck is slowly coming to life.

Officially, V'Mal was a rogue agent, brainwashed by Vulcan separatists. Starfleet will retrieve USS Mason and her crew. Unofficially, and known only to Ramson, Coleridge, and Chirakis: ~There are too many unanswered questions, ~V'Mal may have been working with others, and ~This situation is far from over. In general, Aegis is trying to get back to normal operations. Captain Ramson is resting per doctor's orders. Commander Coleridge is resting after a trying night. Captain Chirakis is in command.
