  1. =/\= Aegis Mission Brief 7/12/19 =/\= 17 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.138 TBS 3 hours. The time is 1300 (1:00 PM) Aegis local. Aegean is still under repair. A torpedo has been launched to mark their location for rescue. Regulus picked up pings from the torpedo. On Aegis, the Gremlin is still puzzled. Chirakis: =/\==/\=BEGIN SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: =/\==/\=BEGIN SIM=/\==/\= Fletcher Jackson: ::OPS::: Dacia Sandero: @ ::on the bridge of Aegean:: Scott Coleridge: @::unwrapping a field ration:: CdrBrown: ::at the strategic ops console:: Scott Coleridge: @ This flavour is actually worse than the last version. Chirakis: ::exits her office after her conference with the admirals:: Chirakis: Commander Cayne, report. mimipavilion: ::in her office in medical:: Nijil tr'Korjata: @ :: Walking briskly through lower corridor of the ship, dodging fellow crew members :: Chirakis: # LtCdrDayson> ::listening for the ping::: It's gone. ::turns to Hill:: Anything? Nijil tr'Korjata: @ Move move..... Alexis McFarland: ::still in class with her friends:: Scott Coleridge: @::Dacia:: What's the latest casualty report? How are we holding up? Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Still no word from the Aegean. The search radius is still rather large and risking other craft to investigate just invites another incident. Chirakis: # Lt Hill> No sir. Nothing. It pinged its way by but I couldn't get a grip on the angle. It seems to be from all over the place, but mainly in the direction of the star. mimipavilion: ::trying to figure out what she needs to get ready just in case things go sideways:: Dacia Sandero: @ We have six crewmen sustained injuries , but so far no symptoms of radiation poisoning from any of our crew. Tarisa: ::Steps onto CnC, heading for her station.:: Chirakis: :::expression is stern and focused::: Alexis McFarland: ::in gym class, watching the other students running laps around the track:: Scott Coleridge: @ That's actually much better than I feared. Tarisa: Miana> :;Sitting by Alexis, but looking at one of the new students in the class.:: Scott Coleridge: @::Nijil:: How much longer can we maintain proper shielding? CdrBrown: ::looking at the reported locations of nearby vessels:: Dacia Sandero: @ I agree, we were lucky there. They are resting nicely. Chirakis: Commander Brown, anything in Strategic OPS? Alexis McFarland: ::Looks at the new students too:: Nijil tr'Korjata: @ +Coleridge+ I would not hazard a guess. Likely a few hours. Fletcher Jackson: ::shuttling ships into and out of the corridor, making sure there are no collisions::: CdrBrown: In terms of the SAR incident, there are a couple of older civilian science vessels that are about 6 or 7 days out. They may have better sensor load outs than anything we can throw at this... Chirakis: # LtCdrDayson> ::sigh:: Okay. So... we're essentially alone. CdrBrown: otherwise, no other movements since last update regarding Alien Alliance at this time Chirakis: ::ponders that a moment::: Chirakis: Sending another vessel into that area is not a good idea. We're dealing with a star that might or might not be controlled by another entity besides nature. Scott Coleridge: @::struggles not to let his frustration with such an inexact estimate show in his face or voice:: +Nijil+ I need a more... constrained... estimate, please. Two hours? Ten hours? mimipavilion: ::finishes with her research:: Chirakis: # LtCdrDayson> Lt Hill, send a few pings to the most likely origin of the pings we received. Chirakis: # Hill> Aye, sir. Sending now. Nijil tr'Korjata: @ +Coleridge+ Since I cannot give au an exact time that forces me to say two hours, sir. CdrBrown: ::looks up:: however, they may have more sophisticated probing equipment depending on their respective missions. Could keep their ships at what we determine is the safe distance. Alexis McFarland: ::looks at the bunch of new students, hopes at least some of them are friendly:: Nijil tr'Korjata: @ :: Sticks a probe into a wall panel :: Tarisa: ::Fine tunes the shiny new sensors to try and pick up weaker subspace frequencies.:: Annisha: :: In the hallway :: Scott Coleridge: @+Nijil+ Thank you. ::Dacia:: Doctor, we'll proceed under the assumption that we will be exposed at least partially to the star's radiation within 2 hours, and that we are not being rescued before then. Tarisa: Miana> We should race in your wheelchair. ::grins.:: Chirakis: :::Brown:: What I do not want is a line of ships going into that nebula for SAR. We have the Alien Alliance to deal with as well as the star. Nijil tr'Korjata: @ :: shrugs, to another person :: I need it to at least 90%. Dacia Sandero: @ Very well.. that seems like a good assumption Scott Coleridge: @ You have complete authority to use whatever personnel you need to begin enacting radiation protocols and treating people as they show symptoms. Draft our outsize security contingent as nurses and porters. Alexis McFarland: Mmm.. yes, that'd be fun Chirakis: # Lt Hill> ::sending pings in Morse code::: CdrBrown: ::chirakis:: understood. just putting all the options out there. Luckily, for now the Alien Alliance has shown no movement... which itself may be concerning. mimipavilion: ::exits medical and heads to CnC:: Tarisa: Miana> I would run, but the boys hate it when I outrun them. mimipavilion: ::arrives on the CnC a few moments later:: Alexis McFarland: Hehehe. Annisha: :: Reaches where Lexy and Miana are :: Alexis McFarland: Hey Annisha. Chirakis: ::turns to Tarisa::: Commander, we need some answers regarding that star. Pull up everything you can think of and give us ideas for rescue or... retrieval. Tarisa: Miana> ::Smiles and waves.:: Dacia Sandero: @ ::Nods:: Aye - will do. Chirakis: ::notes Mimi's presence::: Annisha: Girls... what's going on? Fletcher Jackson: ::moves to internal OPS as Strategic and TAC OPS are occupied... and it makes him feel better to not even think about what might happen::: Alexis McFarland: We're watching the other kids run round the track Scott Coleridge: @::leans back in the command chair and ponders whether they can do anything to raise their visibility profile:: Tarisa: ::Nods:: Yes Captain. ::Lets the computer continue scanning for potential subspace signals, and turn to the secondary monitor to bring up data.:: Scott Coleridge: @+Nijil+ What's the status of the AQS? Chirakis: :::steps back to Mimi, her expression focused:: Doctor. Nothing yet. mimipavilion: ::nods to Chirakis:: I do have a plan ready. Chirakis: ::nods::: Excellent. Nijil tr'Korjata: @ +Coleridge+ It's still running, obviously, but the safeties are in place for the moment. Containment has not been affected. CdrBrown: ::begins to dig deeper in to why the Alien Alliance has not moved in some time as Tarisa is handling the star:: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Looking over the latest scans of the area :: Chirakis: # LtCdrDayson> ::looks up::: Go dark. Alliance ship is coming through. Scott Coleridge: @+Nijil+ Cool cool cool cool. And if we wanted to disengage some of those safeties and affect containment? Annisha: :: Sits :: I'm game Alexis McFarland: Yesh Chirakis: % Alien Alliance Ship> ::huge by any standard, loaded for bear, making another pass through the nebula:: Nijil tr'Korjata: @ +Coleridge+ The containment system is either on fully or off. The safeties are for the benefit of what else the AQS powers. Nijil tr'Korjata: @ +Coleridge+ I am working on powering the shields through the AQS, but that's not normal protocol. Dacia Sandero: @ ::back in the sickbay, formulating an action plan with her medical staff and commandeered crewmen:: Tarisa: ::Looking at the data, and bringing up the logs from her time in the same nebula.:: Hmm... :;Tail swishes.:: Chirakis: Anyone... give us some options that might work without upending the Alien Alliance. Scott Coleridge: @+Nijil+ Let's say, hypothetically, I want to drop containment and amplify the AQS' gravitational distortion on the star to generate something that will show up on subspace sensors. How can we do this without tearing apart the ship? Tarisa: There is one thing that may be fortunate...in a sense. The Aegean is equipped with an AQS. Chirakis: ::Tarisa::: And....? Nijil tr'Korjata: @ +Coleridge+ The containment is sealed from the factory. I have no control over it. Are you planning to destroy the AQS core? Scott Coleridge: @::waiting for Nijil to re-engage the comm after he runs through his vocabulary of profanities:: Alexis McFarland: ::moves her hoverchair closer to the track:: Tarisa: It was what saved us when we experienced the same outage in my previous venture. Assuming the containment was maintained, they will be able to powerup with time and restore shields. Tarisa: I am afraid anything with a standard warp core would not be able to do the same, which is why we lost the Warren. CdrBrown: ::looks over at Tarisa:: And if containment wasn't maintained? Nijil tr'Korjata: @ +Coleridge+ The AQS is a powerful, but somewhat delicate power source. It's a risky method of faster-than-light power that has only been refined over centuries. Chirakis: ::nods, listening::: I would think that Commander Korjata would be aware, but that is a positive idea. Tarisa: ::Frowns, looking to Brown.:: If containment was lost, then a search would be futile. Annisha: What are they doing out there :: Sits next to Alexis :: CdrBrown: if it was totally lost, yes. What about a partial loss? would that give off any type of signal we could pick up? Tarisa: But I have not detected a blackhole in the area, so that is a good sign. Alexis McFarland: They are running. Alexis McFarland: Teacher says I can do a lap in my hover chair. We should do one. CdrBrown: ::nods:: Tarisa: Miana> ::Noting the new kids sticking in a group.:: Annisha: :: Stares at Alexis :: How is that fair? Alexis McFarland: It's just laps. Its not a race or anything. ::moves to the starting line:: Hop on. Nijil tr'Korjata: @ :: Looks at his work and wonders if he's done enough :: Alexis McFarland: Some of those girls look nice. Chirakis: # LtCdrDayson> :::lets out the breath he was holding:: They're gone. Apparently they have no interest in small ships or they don't know that we are here. Annisha: :: Hops on :: I'm not hoverly-abled... Tarisa: I know everyone is...anxious, but in this instance I fear the most we can do is keep watch. Commander Korjata has been in this same situation, and Lt. Dran is familiar with the nebula. I believe they will succeed. Any sort of rescue attempt on our part could lead to more trouble. Annisha: I can do nice... Dacia Sandero: @ ::setting up triage centres in sickbay and other areas if needed:: Alexis McFarland: Nice. Scott Coleridge: @+Nijil+ Let's not think of it as "disabling" containment then. How about poking some holes in it? Alexis McFarland: ::holds onto Annisha and Miana if she's on too, and steers herself around the track::: Weee.. Chirakis: ::hearing Tarisa::: Agreed. mimipavilion: ::listening:: Nijil tr'Korjata: @ +Coleridge+ Au are venturing into areas I was told not to read in the textbooks. Scott Coleridge: @ The torpedo was a good start, but even if our ships find the torpedo at the right time, tracing it back to us might not work. I want us to show up on subspace sensors. Alexis McFarland: ::She quickly does a lap around the track, faster than anyone:: Nijil tr'Korjata: @ In any even we'd have to remove the AQS from the housing and move it to a shuttlebay. Chirakis: # LtCdrDayson> Okay... let's see what we can find. Scott Coleridge: @+Nijil+ I've got the subspace theory knowledge, but I need your expertise with AQS systems. Think, Nijil. How can we use our captive black hole to get some attention? Non-destructively. Nijil tr'Korjata: @ +Coleridge+ It's also rather heavy. We'd need to drop gravity all over the ship to move it freely. Nijil tr'Korjata: @ +Coleridge+ Destroy it far from the ship. Tarisa: Miana> ::Cheering Alexis on.:: Scott Coleridge: @ +Nijil+ Oh, I really don't want to have to explain to Starfleet how I detonated a black hole inside a nebula in unaligned space. This place already has one subspace anomaly too many. Alexis McFarland: ::completes her lap and goes back to Miana::: Nijil tr'Korjata: @ +Coleridge+ Depends on how badly au wish to leave. Alexis McFarland: Hehehe. Chirakis: # LtCdrDayson> Damn... it's coming back. Go dark. Everything. Scott Coleridge: @+Nijil+ What if we bombarded the AQS with polarized nadion bursts? Nadion emissions can cause gravity waves in singularities, right? If we modulate them precisely, can we get waves strong enough to show up on sensors but not so strong they destroy us? Chirakis: # LtCdrDayson> ::shuts down everything as the alien ship moves close, then stops. Tarisa: Miana> Yay! Alexis McFarland: That was fun. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: @ +Coleridge+ They would have to get through the shield casing that contains the singularity. CdrBrown: ::looking at the flight paths of the Alien Alliance ships as they joined their formation:: Scott Coleridge: @+Nijil+ Right. The shield casing. Hmm. ::ponders audibly:: Ok, maybe we're going about this the wrong way. Chirakis: % Alien Alliance Ship> ::slowly moves through the nebula like it's looking for something::: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Captain, this region of space is not typical..I can't place my finger on it, but things are just not like a typical chunk of space. Chirakis: # LtCdrDayson> (w) Don't. Even. Breathe. Alexis McFarland: ::Hugs Miana:: mimipavilion: ::moves a bit closer to Wyatt to listen:: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Doctor... Did I miss a physical? Nijil tr'Korjata: @ +Coleridge+ Consider this, any ship we know of will likely have the same troubles we are, well, perhaps the Borg could adapt. Chirakis: ::turns to Cayne::: Throw out any ideas. Dacia Sandero: @ ::hopes we can get rescued though:: Scott Coleridge: @+Nijil+ We tried sending up a flare, so to speak, and that might or might not have worked. We won't know until someone knocks on our door. We can't abandon ship because our escape pods and shuttlecraft don't have shielding. So we can't leave, and we can't attract attention the conventional way. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Bombard the area with probes? no risk to people? mimipavilion: ::shakes her head:: I'm just listening. Annisha: That thing is dangerous Lexy. :: gets off :: Pretty sure I'll have to run it myself though., Scott Coleridge: @+Nijil+ What if we make this area safer? What if we neutralize the star's pulses, permanently? Alexis McFarland: @But it's fun... Alexis McFarland: @ I think we all eventually do. I did my lap though. Tarisa: Miana> ::Giggles.:: We should paint flames on the sides. Alexis McFarland: @Yay. Alexis McFarland: Flames add 50 extra horsepower. CdrBrown: ::looks at Cayne:: I think we need to change the angle that we are looking at and listening for things. Look at these flight paths for Alien Alliance ships that passed near the nebula before assuming their current positions.... some of the paths are almost erratic, like something forced a course change... Tarisa: Miana> ::Looks in awe.:: It will summon horses? Alexis McFarland: Yes? mimipavilion: ::Chirakis:: whatever they do they need to do it quickly. Chirakis: Indeed they do. Nijil tr'Korjata: @ +Coleridge+ We could work up that. Scott Coleridge: @+Nijil+ Finally, some optimism! Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: 7/12/19 Chirakis: Thank you. Chirakis: I like that, Scott. Something positive. Chirakis: TBS will be 2 hours. Scott Coleridge: Sounds good Chirakis: Words for the crew?Scott Coleridge: I mean, if you're in mortal peril, you might as well try to save yourself. Chirakis: Questions or comments from the crew? CdrBrown: ! Chirakis: Commander? CdrBrown: Thanks for having me back for an evening. Hopefully I can make more appearances than once every few years! Glad and proud to see the fine tradition that is Aegis is still carrying on every Friday night! Chirakis: It is a pleasure to have you here, Commander. May your ship be intact and all hands safe as the storm passes by. You are welcome at any time. Chirakis: Crew dismissed. Be well. Be Safe. Don’t forget your towel.
  2. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |12 July 2019 17 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.138 TBS is 3 hours. The time is 1300 hours (1:00 PM) Aegis local. While Aegean personnel continue to repair the ship before the star pulls them into its gravity well, security personnel aboard Regulus continue their search, calling for response and receiving none. Finally, Aegean ejects a torpedo and Regulus picks up a sonic pulse that they hope is Aegean. On Aegis, Captain Chirakis privately informed Commander Cayne and Dr Pavilion that there might be a psychological catastrophe to deal with if Aegean is not found. Meanwhile, Lt Kenyon is in the security complex using various ideas to communicate with the smelly alien we now call Gremlin.
  3. Ragor Tal Chirakis Kirel, SI-5 In the silence of her office, Kirel stared blankly at the image on her viewscreen. Federation Security Admiral Mulligan stared back. Behind him were Rendezvous October’s Admiral Solokov, SI-5 Director Torak, and SI-6 Captain Raza. "Not exactly to be expected, but then the unexpected has become the norm," Mulligan continued the conversation as he relaxed into his chair. "Agreed," Kirel muttered, though she had other thoughts. One arm rested on her desk as the stylus in her hand flipped from finger to finger. The strange message sent to her from Aegis OPS was indecipherable, even to Aegis’s computer. But she recognized the pattern, the frequency, and the garbled language that the computer passed off as low frequency interstellar rumbles, possibly small asteroids in slow collision. This was no asteroid collision. "I know that look, Captain,” said Mulligan. “Your expression tells me that you do not agree, that there is something else.” "Admiral,” she sighed, “it makes no sense." A slight grunt prefaced Mulligan’s, "What makes no sense, Captain? Enlighten us. You are more acquainted with Ragor Tal than anyone. How does this transmission not make sense? I would think that a rogue group would welcome his leadership." Kirel drew the admiral's full attention with a slight grin and chuckle as she flipped her stylus into its cradle then leaned forward. "It makes no sense that Ragor Tal would be their leader, Admiral,” she began. “He is not a leader, he is a manipulator, and the most brilliant racketeer I have ever pursued. He keeps his marauding group small and compartmentalized. He is highly skilled in manipulative, clandestine operations. His primary modus operandi is to convince the opposition that the enemy is within. He will pit one leader against the other, create chaos and infighting, then either move in and take over the organization or infiltrate what was left with one of his own lackeys.” Silence reigned for a moment or two as she judged their reaction, then she continued, “We are talking about Argesil gentlemen. The classic mark of Ragor Tal.” “Then what is he doing with the Alien Alliance? Is he taking over? Perhaps beginning to infiltrate? And how did the Alien Alliance acquire those coded messages?” “Unfortunately, Admiral, that remains to be seen.” ___________________ Argesil
  4. =/\= Aegis Mission Brief 7/5/19 =/\= 17 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.138 TBS 2 hours. The time is 1000 (10:00 AM) Aegis local. Aegean's major systems are disabled by a star's energy wave. Dangerous radiation is a threat. Only basic systems are operable. The main computer is offline; backup processors are at 20%; Hopefully they will jerry-rig communication to send for help. Starfleet's security runabout, Regulus, has lost contact with them. Only Cpt Chirakis has been informed of the problem. On Aegis, security is dealing with Crow, the gremlin, and a strange language they cannot decipher.

  5. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |5 July 2019 17 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.138 TBS is 2 hours. The time is 1000 hours (10:00 AM) Aegis local. The star that Aegean was exploring hit the ship with a wave. Aegean is now disabled, 0.6 AU from the star and its dangerous radiation. Their orbit is unstable but they have 10 days before the ship will be pulled into the star. Only basic systems and life support are online. The main computer is offline and backup processors are at 20%. Methods of restoring power developed to counter Breen weaponry are not much help. Ways to send for help are in progress. Starfleet Command’s Runabout Regulus cannot find Aegean nor does it respond to hail. Meanwhile, they detect alien vessels passing through the nebula without noticing Regulus or Aegean. The Alien Alliance ships are bound for An-Ward. On Aegis, what seems to be a complex alien language has yet to be translated. In addition, communication with a small, smelly alien species that was caught tinkering with Aegis electronics has not been successful.

While Aegean investigates Nebula 259b the star's massive explosion spins them out of control. Major power systems are down. Several are injured. Aegis and Starfleet's security tail Regulus have lost contact with Aegean. Only Cpt Chirakis has been informed. Everyone else believes that Aegean is on a routine science mission.

  7. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |28 June 2019 17 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.138 TBS is 11 hours. The time is 0700 hours (7:00 AM) Aegis local. While life on Aegis returned to normalcy, the situation on the science exploration ship, Aegean, worked from curious to catastrophe. A crew from Aegeis had taken Aegean to nebula 259b to investigate a star that seemed to trigger wave pulses as soon as a starship entered the area. During their scientific investigation, most of Aegean’s power went out, life support dwindled to minimal, and an increase of the star’s electromagnetic waves threatened the entire ship. Dr Sandero’s sick bay overflowed and the security detail from Aegis worked in full force. Starfleet Command has informed Captain Chirakis of the incident. She has yet to pass the information on.

  9. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |21 June 2019 16 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.137 TBS is 2 hours. The time is 1900 hours (7:00 PM) Aegis local. Aegean’s solar investigation has brought them to within 0.2 AU of the star in Nebula 259b. Stellar radiation levels remain low. Starfleet’s security tail detected a large alien ship cruising close to Aegean. The alien ship has not detected Aegean. Aegis’s tactical grid shows a small seven-planet system with one class M world near Aegean’s area of operation. Other than that, things are fairly quiet. On Aegis, things have settled to normalcy. Families who lived in tent cities below decks have moved into new accommodations. Security is keeping a close watch on a syndicate’s leader, Crow. An attempt to communicate with a strange small creature called “the gremlin” is ongoing. Whether it is part of Crow’s gang or not has yet to be determined.

  11. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |14 June 2019 16 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.137 TBS is 4 hours. The time is 1300 hours (1:00 PM) Aegis local. On Aegean: The star that they are investigating continues to actively pulse. Its wave frequency has not intensified nor shown signs of diminishing. We suspect that the 259b wave generation is artificial. However, the solar wave could be triggered by proximity to the star, or by the proximity of an artificial quantum singularity similar to that used by Nei’rrh and Aegean. Dr Sandero is monitoring the electromagnetic wave effects on humanoid life. For now, the radiation levels are within Aegean’s tolerance levels. Aegean will keep its current distance until results from the probes come back. The Starfleet security ship that is tailing Aegean informed Cdr Coleridge that a large alien vessel has entered nebula 259b close to Aegean. The ship does not seem aware of Aegean’s presence, but they will continue to monitor. On Aegis: Families who have been living in the unfinished areas of the station will be given new quarters. Security is watching Crow, the syndicate leader below decks. The “gremlin” is still in custody. It is docile, inquisitive, and confused. Security has not been able to communicate with it.

  13. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |31 May 2019 16 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.137 No TBS. The time is 0800 hours (08:00 AM) Aegis local. On Aegis, security is stymied with its newest acquisition: a small humanoid that was installing electronic equipment in unfinished areas of the station. They call the being “the gremlin” for lack of a better name, and believe that it is responsible for most of the electronic glitches we have had throughout the station: turbolift malfunctions, random blinking emergency lights, and similar. They have tried interrogation, but the computer cannot decipher its language. It is docile and inquisitive rather than aggressive. To top it all off, its normal odor resembles a blend of chicken poop and rotten fish—or so Lt Garand says. Thankfully, our Vulcan engineer, Ens Sartaru, has formulated an aerosol spray that works. Mostly. On a more serious note, Aegean has reached its destination in Nebula 259b. As soon as they achieved stellar orbit to begin their tests, the star’s electromagnetic wave generation spiked and entered an active phase without warning.
