  1. =/\= Aegis Mission Brief 8/18/17 - 10:03 PM=/\= 7 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.097 TBS is 10 minutes for Aegis. The time is 1030 hours (10:30 am) Aegis local. TBS is 0 for Aegean. The time is 1020 hours (10:20 am) Aegis local. Aegis has lost all communication with Aegean. Pursued by the planet, Aegean is trying to exit the wormhole with a daring move. When and where will they end up? Chirakis: Stand by for further instructions.... Chirakis: Captain Ramson, continue. Kallah Ramson: There will be a number of action statements early to help set the stage. But these should drop drastically and much of the action will be up to the crew. Scott Coleridge: So you're saying that the specifics of what's happening will be shaped by what the crew reports and does? Kallah Ramson: ....as in, your actions will be needed...to save yourself. um, or whatever....yeah, yeah....what the Scott said. Kallah Ramson: No pressure. Scott Coleridge: And that as long as it doesn't contravene an explicit action, we're free to build on what's happened to move things forward? Kallah Ramson: Yes. I would prefer you don't blow up my ship or station. Kallah Ramson: As mentioned, Aegis crew begin where we left off sim before last. Aegean from where last sim was. Kallah Ramson: Any questions? Jylliene: ::raise hand:: Kallah Ramson: Yes. Jylliene: So are we all playing folks on Aegean, or are we back to playing our typical characters at their present locations? Kallah Ramson: Both Aegis and Aegean are in the same timeframe now. So normal characters, though you may continue to also play an Aegean character. Kallah Ramson: Anything else? Kallah Ramson: If nothing else....

We have visual of you....and a planet. But that's it. Fletcher Jackson: @ ::a planet?::: Scott Coleridge: @::blinks:: Can't... register... us. Huh. Kallah Ramson: +Aegean+ How did you manage to get a planet to follow you home? And no... you can't keep it. Lawliet: @ ::initializes restart sequence on the sensor array:: Jylliene: ::stifles a chuckle:: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: @ :: taps :: Other systems are coming back online. Fletcher Jackson: @ Should I ask them if it's tailing us, sir. Like, are we about to be squashed? Scott Coleridge: @+Aegis+ Aegean, can you repeat your last? Are you saying we're not on sensors? Also, awwww, can't we? You have to admit this is a great wedding present. Tarisa: @ ::Relaxes as the doctor does her thing.:: Kallah Ramson: ::smirk:: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: @ How close are we to Aegis now? Jylliene: I do not need a planet for a wedding present, and I'm not entirely sure I trust Nijil - or Annisha - with an entire one. Scott Coleridge: ((Yeah, that's right. I got you your own planet. That's how much I like you two!)) Chirakis: ::steps next to Ramson:: You find this amusing, Captain?

Kallah Ramson: +Aegean+ All time best present ever Mr Coleridge. But, confirmed.... you don't seems to really be all here yet. Kallah Ramson: ::ops:: Run a full sensor sweep.

Jylliene: ::nods:: Full sensor sweep, yes ma'am. Jylliene: ::initializes:: Kallah Ramson: ::Chirakis:: Simply relieved to see them back. Fletcher Jackson: @ We're... not all there yet? Scott Coleridge: @::Lawliet:: Good. +Engineering+ Engineering, divert power to sensors and shields. We need to know what we're dealing with. Scott Coleridge: @ We may still be caught in some kind of temporal flux following the wormhole's collapse. Chirakis: ::accepts that ,though reluctantly:: As am I, Captain. Jylliene: Sensor sweep beginning. Fletcher Jackson: @ :::great::: Lawliet: @ ::confirming reports from Aegis and begins running quantum level scans:: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: @ One of its endpoints was right at Aegis' door... awfully convenient. Fletcher Jackson: @ ::maintaining an open com to Aegis::: Kallah Ramson: ::overhears that:: +Aegean+ Your fleet records clearly state, "keep away from wormholes". this should be an interesting report to read. mimipavilion: @Dr Cthulu>Tarisa, can you hear me. Scott Coleridge: @::Cayne:: I'm curious about that too. I have a feeling we've missed some piece of the puzzle along the way. Tarisa: @ ::Nods.:: I feel...better. Scott Coleridge: @::Lawliet:: I need to know if the planet's anomaly is still present. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: @ If I read my quick read manual correctly, wormholes are a passageway in space and time. Perhaps we are out of temporal sync with the Aegis we left. Fletcher Jackson: @ ::his heart calms down slowly:: mimipavilion: @Dr. Cthulu> Good. Lay here and get some rest for a while. Dacia Sandero: @ ::nods::: Lawliet: @ Checking... ::focuses sensors on the planet and surrounding space:: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: @ I mean a few drinks and I'm out of sync with the universe... Fletcher Jackson: @ :;sharp turn toward Cayne:: Drinks, sir? Scott Coleridge: @ I have some ideas, but they might be dangerous if the planet's anomaly is still present. They could essentially recreate the wormhole, which we're obviously going to avoid. Fletcher Jackson: @ ::goes to stationkeeping:: Kallah Ramson: ::tac:: Launch standby fighters and have them move towards Aegean. ::Ops:: Let's also clear all other traffic from that area. Jylliene: Clearing traffic, yes ma'am. Chirakis: ::steps over to her console, instructing FOPS to launch fighters::: Jylliene: ::starts sending out the diverting notices and alternative vectors:: Chirakis: Fighters ready to launch. Chirakis: ::looks up:: When we are clear, Commander Kital. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: @ Do we know if the wormhole is stable? Most are not. Jylliene: Other traffic is clear from your launch vectors. Chirakis: ::nod:: +FOPS+ Launch fighters to following coordinates. Lawliet: @ ::looks up:: Captain...it appears the anomaly is dormant. Chirakis: ::enters Aegean's coordinates::: Scott Coleridge: @ The wormhole was more of an effect than a spacetime structure. See, it's as if the light-cone of Aegean and the light-cone of Aegis space intersected within 4-dimensional … uh, I mean, no. It wasn't "stable" in the way you mean. Scott Coleridge: @::Lawliet:: Thank you. Keep an eye on it. ::Jackson:: Let's try putting some distance between us and the planet, half impulse. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: @ The only known stable wormhole is in the Bajoran sector Fletcher Jackson: @ ::listening, keying on on the last sentence, thinking it's kind of stable::: Gila Orrak: @ :: Sits in medical :: May I sit? Fletcher Jackson: @ Yes, sir. Moving off, one half impulse. Dacia Sandero: @Yes, of course Lawliet: @ ::keeps an eye on the planetoid:: Chirakis: Fighters out of the bay. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: @ It looks like we are home, but rather far away. Chirakis: Bravo squadron on standby. Kallah Ramson: ACTION> Aegean system register motion. Visual reference however show no movement. Scott Coleridge: @::Cayne:: It's stable within a four-dimensional context, but not a three-dimensional one, if that makes any sense. The wormhole only existed as a consequence of Aegean's warp engines interacting with the planet's anomaly. I have more theories about the latter, but I don't know if we'll have an opportunity to test them. Fletcher Jackson: @ :::settling down, little by little::: Gila Orrak: @ Don't suppose you have any Canar? Scott Coleridge: @ Why doesn't the planet look like it's getting smaller on the viewer? Lawliet: @ ::checks his readings:: mimipavilion: @::moves from Tarisa to another patient:: Fletcher Jackson: @ ::a quick glance at the viewer tells him something he doesn't want to know::: Dacia Sandero: @Canar? I believe we do. Lawliet: @ ::looks up:: Captain, I have a suggestion. mimipavilion: ::listens to what's going on:: Dacia Sandero: @ I can get some for you if you want. Gila Orrak: @ Really? A Cardassian drink onboard a Federation and Romulan designed starship? Chirakis: ::steps toward Mimi:: Doctor, have you any thoughts on this? Jylliene: ::leaning on her console, having another drink of her coffee while they wait for the fighters to arrive at Aegean:: Dacia Sandero: @ Our mess has a wide variety of drinks on hand from many worlds. At least that's what I was told. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: @ If we could understand our affect on the planet.. Fletcher Jackson: @ ::mutters:: Unless it's the planet's affect on us. Gila Orrak: @ That's a lot of space dedicated to liquor. Fletcher Jackson: @ ::shrugs:: or maybe both? Cdr Wyatt Cayne: @ The planet has more mass than we do. Dacia Sandero: @ ::shrugs:: I suppose so. Our quartermaster is one resourceful bloke, I'll say. Lawliet: @ ::to Coleridge:: If we deploy a beacon with a omnidirectional sensor array, we can triangulate the relative change in position of the ship, planet, and station. Fletcher Jackson: @ ::Looks up, just now realizing that Cayne heard him::: Kallah Ramson: ACTION> Subspace alert system triggered again. A subspace well is forming at the planetoids location. Scott Coleridge: @ Worth a try. Chirakis: ::checks the TAC console::: mimipavilion: ::Chirakis:: It's a bit odd and out of my job description. Chirakis: A subspace well is forming, Captain. Chirakis: At the same location as the planet. Chirakis: And the planet appears to be following Aegean. Or actually, they don't seem to be moving at all. Lawliet: @ ::releases the beacon:: Beacon away Captain. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: @ Heisenberg? Chirakis: ::nods to Mimi::: Jylliene: The fighters....? Chirakis: ::looks to Ramson:: Kallah Ramson: +Aegean+ We're reading some subspace instability near your pet planet. We can try and tow you clear.... unless you think that might make things worse. Kallah Ramson: ::notes the beacon Aegean has launched:: Are we also receiving a signal from that beacon? Scott Coleridge: @::Jackson:: I want you to vary our speed and relative vector away from the planet. +Aegean+ We're going to try modifying how quickly and obliquely we attempt to vacate the vicinity of the planet. Can you see if there's a correlation between the subspace instability and our attempted motion? I want to know if us trying to escape is making things worse. Fletcher Jackson: @ ::tap..tap:: Varying vector away from the planet. Jylliene: No, no signal, ma'am Lawliet: @ ::checks the beacon's sensor readings:: Fletcher Jackson: @ ::changes direction... then speed... then direction... then speed... over a few minutes::: Kallah Ramson: +Aegean+ Sending you all our data now. ::nods to Jyl:: Fletcher Jackson: @ Data incoming, Captain. To your console? Fletcher Jackson: @ ::changes direction, same speed::: Scott Coleridge: @ Yes please, and science. Fletcher Jackson: @ Aye, sir. Data transfer to you and science. Lawliet: @ ::relays his readings to the Captain:: Chirakis: ::keeping an eye on FOPS reports:: Captain, Alpha leader reports no apparent movement on visual for Aegean or the planet, though they appear to be fading. Chirakis: Asking for clarification now. Kallah Ramson: Fading? That doesn't sound good. mimipavilion: ::hears Chirakis and is concerned:: Chirakis: No, it does not.... Chirakis: The Aegean and the planet seem to be fading from sight. No other information. They are able to observe, but not approach. Kallah Ramson: +Aegean+ Status over there? We still don't have you on sensors and you're starting to slip out of visual. Fletcher Jackson: @ ::continues his vector changes::: Jylliene: Maybe we're only seeing "pulses" of their location, so they're fading because they're no longer at that location? Scott Coleridge: @+Aegis+ I have good news! Jylliene: ::likes good news:: Kallah Ramson: +Aegean+ let's hear it Scott Coleridge: @+Aegis+ It seems like you won't have to worry about the planet sticking around much longer. Scott Coleridge: @+Aegis+ It is definitely going to sink into subspace. Fletcher Jackson: @ ::whew::: Kallah Ramson: +Aegean+ ...and? Jylliene: ::not sure she likes what that may mean for Aegean:: Scott Coleridge: @::twiddling his thumbs against his console:: +Aegis+ Of course, if we don't figure out a way to separate ourselves from it, it's going to take us with it. Chirakis: 10:55 PM Fletcher Jackson: @ ::aw darn::: mimipavilion: ::doesn't like the sound of that:: Kallah Ramson: +Aegean+ well, let's try not to let that happen. any ideas? Scott Coleridge: @+Aegis+ Yes. Can you run a simulation and let us know approximately how much time we have? Fletcher Jackson: @ ::hasn't been into subspace and really doesn't want to go::: Scott Coleridge: @::Cayne:: How is our shield strength looking? Kallah Ramson: ::Jyl:: Get the computers on that. Jylliene: Yes ma'am Cdr Wyatt Cayne: @ Shields are at 93%. Scott Coleridge: @::has spent so much darn time in subspace that after one more visit his punch card will entitle him to a free *something*:: Jylliene: ::entering the request, using their current info:: Jylliene: ((It's at least a free mug or something.)) Scott Coleridge: @::Lawliet:: I'm thinking chronitons. Lots and lots of chronitons. Do we like chronitons? Chirakis: (Dacia has a stash in sick bay if you are in need.) Dacia Sandero: (:D) Fletcher Jackson: @ ::chronitons.. why does it always have to be chronitons::: Chirakis: 10:58 PM Scott Coleridge: @::turns back to Cayne:: As a backup plan, how do you feel about trying to blow up that there planet? Lawliet: @ ::looks over at Coleridge:: Asking one whose entire life is in question due to time. Fletcher Jackson: @ ::minding his own business::: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: @ I'm not sure we have the power Mr. Coleridge. Jylliene: I'm gonna need more coffee. Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: 8/18/17 Chirakis: Thank you. Chirakis: A perfect line to pause on. Chirakis: Captains, well done. Chirakis: Well. Captain Ramson, TBS? Kallah Ramson: ::looks to Scott:: Pick it up from there? Scott Coleridge: Yes. Kallah Ramson: ::nods:: Chirakis: TBS is zero. Comments for the crew from either captain? Kallah Ramson: None. Scott Coleridge: I'm good. Chirakis: Questions or comments from the crew? Chirakis: Seeing none, Chirakis: Crew dismissed. Be well. Be Safe. Don’t forget your towel.
  2. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 18 August 2017 7 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.097 TBS is 10 minutes for Aegis. The time is 1030 hours (10:30 AM) Aegis local. TBS is 0 for Aegean. The time there is 1020 hours (10:20 AM) Aegis local. Aegis has lost all communication with Aegean. When or if they will ever see the ship and its crew again has rattled Aegis command as never before. As far as can be determined, Commander Coleridge, Lt Commander Lawliet, Lt Commander Tarisa, Commander Cayne, Dr. Sandero, Ensign Jackson, and the rest of the crew have disappeared into a wormhole. Their one hope is that the expertise aboard will determine a way to return. On Aegean, the crew is stymied. Whether the planet was natural or artificial, and the nature of the anomaly is now immaterial. Their primary goal is to survive, recover, and return safely. They have just disengaged the warp drive, and the wormhole has started to collapse. Aegean now faces a violent transition back to normal spacetime—though where and when they ultimately end up has yet to be determined.
  3. =/\= Aegis Mission Brief 8/11/17 - 10:02 PM=/\= 7 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.097 TBS is 20 minutes. The time is 0920 hours (9:20 am) Aegis local. Aegean and the planet have been sucked into a wormhole. The crew is beginning to wake up. Aegis has just received notice that Aegean and the planet have disappeared. From now on there will be two time frames: ~Aegis will continue on Aegis TBS, determined by Captain Ramson. ~Aegean will have its own TBS, determined by Captain Coleridge.

  4. =/\= Sky Harbor Aegis Season 23 Opener =/\= Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 11 August 2017 7 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.097 TBS is 20 minutes. The time is 0920 hours (9:20 AM) Aegis local. The 4th planet in the p-Kappa 198 System remains a conundrum. This time it has moved from interesting to dangerous. As the crew of Aegean watched from high orbit, outer layers of the anomaly interacted with the planet’s magnetic field and arched toward the planet’s surface; Similar tendrils reached from the planet and connected with the anomaly; When Aegean went to warp to escape, the planet was caught in Aegean’s wake; That caused a subspace ripple; Aegean was herded toward a wormhole. As they speed through the wormhole, Aegean’s crew is knocked unconscious. Where will Aegean emerge? At sim begin: Since there is a 20 minute transmission lag from the planet to Aegis, those on Aegis will have just received notification of Aegean’s disappearance. Aegean’s crew will be waking up from their raucous trip through the wormhole. Little time will have passed on Aegean.
  5. It has indeed been an interesting ride. Thank you, Admiral, for your hard work in getting this forum going, and to you and Webbie for keeping it running smoothly over the years.

Aegean is in polar orbit, investigating an anomaly on the 4th planet in the p-Kappa 198 System. They are continuing to investigate the anomaly to see if they can discover why the deflector burst forced the anomaly to grow.

  7. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 4 August 2017 7 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.097 TBS is 8 hours. The time is 0800 hours (8:00 AM) Aegis local. Aegean is in high orbit of the 4th planet in the p-Kappa 198 System. They continue to receive strange readings, and the more they study, the more the urge to investigate planetside grows. Captain Coleridge is fascinated by the mysterious readings: gravitational eddies and a possible wormhole. “Despite the dramatic result of our deflector pulse, let's not start thinking of this as a problem,” he said, “as something that's broken and needs to be fixed. We're not in danger yet. This is a phenomenon, something to be investigated, studied.” However, he does realize the potential danger involved, and will not progress without a comprehensive plan. Along with all sensor data, Aegean’s last message to Aegis was: Polar gravitational anomalies have revealed wormhole-like behaviour after subjecting them to material and energy probing. Aegean has moved to safer distance while we consider our next move. Surface away mission seems unlikely, but we have remotely collected samples to analyze.

  9. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 28 July 2017 6 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.096 TBS is 5 minutes. The time is 2305 hours (11.05 PM) Aegis local. Aegean is investigating strange signals and atmospheric readings of the 4th planet in the p-Kappa 198 system. A probe sent toward the surface imploded as it increased speed toward the center of the anomaly, then vanished without a trace until a small energy signal was briefly detected from the opposite pole. A wormhole is suspected. At present, the anomaly they are investigating has stabilized, but is increasing in size.

  12. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 14 July 2017 5 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.095 TBS is 4 hours. The time is 2100 hours (9.00 PM) Aegis local. Aegean is in high geosynchronous orbit of the 4th planet in the p-Kappa 198 system, an “unremarkable piece of charcoal floating in space.” The probe has recorded a gravitational reading in orbit, parallel to the planet’s north magnetic pole. Gravitational fields are chaotic, as are scans of the gravitational field. Sensor readings reveal complex mineral deposits beneath the planet’s charred surface. Because of chaotic gravitational fields that put the ship and crew in danger, Captain Coleridge has taken the ship into maximum orbit until they come up with a plan for safe investigation.

Chirakis: Delivering a message. mimipavilion: ::shrugs:: Kallah Ramson: ACTION> Scans of the planet showing planet wide circular mineral deposits, various rings of circle at different latitudes. Jylliene: ::glances over to Ramson:: Tarisa: $ ::Sets up the sensors.:: I will need more power to the forward arrays. Jylliene: ::console beep:: Update is here. Kallah Ramson: Put the data on the main viewer. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: $ :: Looks :: Jylliene: They're in orbit. The anomaly is there, around the fourth planet ::indicates on the viewer:: Sensor logs are included. Chirakis: 10:55 PM Lawliet: $ +ENG+ Bridge to Engineering. Kallah Ramson: ACTION> scans of the gravitational anomaly are....chaotic. Jylliene: ::sends sensor readings to science, Chirakis, and Ramson:: Sensor data forwarded. Fletcher Jackson: $ ::having a hard time with stationkeeping::: Kallah Ramson: ::looking the data over:: So far consistent with what's on file. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: $ :: grimaces :: Chirakis: ::somewhat relieved:: Scott Coleridge: $ Lt T'Paun> +Bridge+ Engineering here. Lawliet: $ +T'Paun+ We need additional power to the forward sensor array. Tarisa: $ ::Trying to compensate.:: It is becoming difficult for me to get readings. Tarisa: $ ::Works to modulate frequencies.:: Chirakis: 10:58 PM Scott Coleridge: $ T'Paun> +Bridge+ Acknowledged. Diverting power from secondary systems. Lawliet: $ ::looks over at Tarisa:: Commander, any luck? Fletcher Jackson: $ ::holding as steady as he can::: Scott Coleridge: $ ::Looking at the rings of mineral deposits:: Such an interesting dispersal. Kallah Ramson: ACTION> the anomaly "wobbles" suddenly, swinging gravitation waves outward. Tarisa: $ I am trying. ::frowns.:: Fletcher Jackson: $ Whoa... Gila Orrak: $ :: Feels funny :: Lawliet: $ ::looks up:: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: $ Grrrr Scott Coleridge: $::feels the ship shuddering:: Take us out into a much higher orbit for now. Annisha: :: breaks out her banjolele :: Fletcher Jackson: $ Moving to higher orbit, aye. Dacia Sandero: $ Whoa.. ::braces herself: Scott Coleridge: $ So far all we have are more questions. Let's come up with a plan before we go looking for the answers. Alexis McFarland: oooh! Kallah Ramson: Looks like Aegean is moving into a polar orbit towards the source. ::deep breath:: Fletcher Jackson: $ Maximum orbit achieved, Captain. Annisha: Plays like a tiny guitar, sounds like something twangy.. or at least that's what the music store said. Jylliene: ::nods:: I have updates going through and automatically adjusting the displays. mimipavilion: ::rather concerned about what's going on:: Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: 7/7/17 Chirakis: Thank you. Chirakis: Well played. Kallah Ramson: So the Aegean has found a planet with it's own fidget spinner "of doom". Chirakis: Captain, TBS? Kallah Ramson: Scott, 4 hours sound good to reevaluate things and move forwards? Scott Coleridge: Yes. Scott Coleridge: We'll start with an informal meeting among bridge crew to solicit ideas, so muse on that in logs if you like. Chirakis: Are we to assume that the ship is high enough to remain stable while the meeting is in progress? Kallah Ramson: Yes Chirakis: Any more comments for either crew? Kallah Ramson: None Chirakis: Questions or comments from the crew? Chirakis: Seeing none... Chirakis: Crew dismissed. Be well. Be Safe. Don’t forget your towel.
  14. A Questionable Matter “The Romulan Recon fleet has picked up something interesting,” Kirel said, thinking aloud. “Many things are interesting,” she mused as she paged through the Romulan report, “so what would make this interesting enough to warrant taking Aegean on what could be an inconsequential mission?” The report she held seemed endless, but she purposed to read it through, just in case. “P-Kappa 198,” she muttered, as the door to her office opened and Security Training Officer Lt Damian Garand stepped in and stopped just inside, drawing her attention. “Come in, Lieutenant. Sit,” she said, putting the report aside, her finger indicating a chair on the other side of her desk. Garand acknowledged the captain as he normally would. She pressed the security button for privacy. “Tell tell me what you know of the p-Kappa 198 system.” Garand stopped short of the chair seat, then eased himself onto it as a quizzical frown swept into his expression. “The p-Kappa 198 system? I… haven’t heard that name for… at least five years, Captain. Orion chased a starship in, but it disappeared. We’re not sure if it vanished, but we did lose contact with it. Our science officer said that the system looked like it had a rogue star, so the captain moved us out.” “Looked like it had a rogue star?” “Yes, ma’am. We really couldn’t really tell much of anything; there was too much interference.” Garand’s head ticked to the side: an expression of curiosity and interest. Kirel let it pass without comment. “And you were officer of the watch at the time, correct?” “Yes, ma’am.” “And did you want to pursue?” “Yes, m’am. But Captain Destula said things didn’t ‘feel right’ and ordered us out.” Kirel raised a brow. “Captain Destula is telepathic?” “Oh, no, ma’am. She just has that gut feeling sometimes, and she’s usually right. As much as Starfleet wanted her to pursue, she pulled us out.” “And for that, she lost her commission,” Kirel sighed, relaxing into her chair. “Yes, ma’am. The crew backed her up at the court martial, but it was still ‘willful disobedience’.” “Lieutenant,” she began thoughtfully, “do you know why Starfleet ordered her to enter the system?” “Well, not really, ma’am. She never said specifically why they ordered it, but as far as I know, there was an unidentifiable signal coming from somewhere in that area. I wasn’t read into the mission, so I’m not sure about that; it was scuttlebutt.” “Well, then. Hypothetically speaking, if you were in command today, and you were ordered to enter the system, would you?” His lips pursed as he straightened up. She could tell he wanted to ask her why she was asking, but she also knew he would not. Instead, he just stared. “And from that expression, I know your answer. Thank you, Lieutenant. Carry on.”
  15. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 7 July 2017 5 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.095 TBS is 3 days. The time is 1600 hours (4.00 PM) Aegis local. Aegean is en route to investigate a strange signal in p-Kappa 198, preceded by a science probe. Commander Coleridge is on his first command mission. Lt Commander Lawliet is in his first mission as second in command. Also aboard are: Commander Cayne - security Ensign Orrak - security Dr. Sandero - medical Lt Commander Tarisa - science Ensign Jackson - Operations Lt T’Paun - engineering Captain Ramson and Captain Chirakis are dealing with loosing the fledglings. ‘Tis a strange feeling. At sim begin, Aegean should be about to enter the target system. The probe will already have arrived and started its initial survey, sending those readings to Aegean.
