  1. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |28 February 2020 3 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.155 TBS is 16 hours. The time is 0700 hours (7:00 am) Aegis Local. Aegis and USS Missouri continue to hunt for the cause of and a cure for a strange illness. A comprehensive review in the conference room was called to be sure that we are on the same page. Possibilities discussed included the gremlin DNA, their anatomy, and the chemical spray they release for protection. Could the real issue stem from the genetically modified, more potent gremlins on Missouri since their crew has experienced worse symptoms? Their area has been quarantined and their physicians are proceeding with caution. Aegis and Missouri’s personnel are collaborating on an antidote and/or a counteragent against the illness. Removing the gremlins from Aegis was considered a possibility. However, the resources needed to accomplish the move and where they would be sent present a problem.
  2. As the 25th season begins, Aegis finds itself preparing for war. With the disappearance of the Breen, freedom has come to those who were held captive as slaves for several generations. They began to explore new worlds, many of which were in Joint Allied Space. Some settled peacefully and were welcomed inside and outside of Joint Allied Space. Others that preferred dominance over peaceful existence formed the Alien Alliance that used a nebula string to move freely into and out of Joint Allied Space. The Federation and Joint Allied Powers soon realized the aliens' thirst for conquest and began to prepare for war. As Captain Kelley of USS Iowa explained, "The Alien Alliance is not only establishing itself throughout the nebula string, they’re taking over planetoids and large asteroids in strategic positions and forming a cordon around the Joint Allied Powers. Intel on their ships and armaments, most of which were stolen, is unbelievable. If they bring us to war, Kirel? It’ll make every other war look like a party… and Aegis will be in the center.”

Dacia Sandero: ::listens:: mimipavilion: ::listening:: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Sitting opposite of Kital :: Scott Coleridge: It seems like you have been making good progress answering some of the questions that have been raised in these past weeks. Scott Coleridge: I wanted to take this opportunity for us to review what we've learned so far, and what your current lines of inquiry are, so that we're all aware of what one another is doing. Scott Coleridge: ::turns to Mimi:: Doctor Pavilion, where are you at with your investigations? Alexis McFarland: ::Snuggles Miana! :: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Listening :: Tarisa: Miana> ::Purrs as she is snuggled.:: Tarisa: ::Quietly sitting in the CR.:: Dacia Sandero: ::glances over at Mimi:: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Sitting off from the table :: mimipavilion: We have found that the gremlins are probable cause of what has been affecting the crew, but to what extent is still unknown. It is believed that their DNA may hold the key as well as their anatomy. Scott Coleridge: If that's the case, should we consider removing the gremlins from the station? Chirakis: :::glance to d'Ka with a curious expression::: mimipavilion: Most likely. Cptn d'Ka: ::paying more attention to the doctors:: Scott Coleridge: All right, we'll come back to that point in a moment. mimipavilion: ::nods:: Scott Coleridge: ::turns to Tarisa:: Commander Tarisa, could you summarize science's findings so far from your efforts? Dacia Sandero: ::nods:: At this point also, we're not sure if it's the DNA from the gremlins themselves, or from their chemical odour spray they released Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Looks at Tarisa :: Dacia Sandero: ::also looks over at Tarisa:: Chirakis: ::mental notes, relaxing and listening::: Alexis McFarland: ::playing with her friends:: mimipavilion: ::looks over to Tarisa:: Tarisa: ::Perks up and nods.:: Yes, as stated, we believe the cause is likely the gremlins, but at this point the how of it is escaping us. But I believe they are more like a simple diversion planned or simply by accident. It seems the real issue may stem from what the Missouri has been experiencing. Cptn d'Ka: ::raises a brow:: Scott Coleridge: So we have a connection between the gremlins and the Missouri? Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Reading something on his PADD :: Tarisa: ::Taps a little console on the table, bringing up a display of the modified Missouri. She nods to Scott.:: These were picked up by the Missouri. The are genetically modified gremlins. Alexis McFarland: ::playing her radio controlled AMC Gremlin in the park:: Scott Coleridge: Interesting, gremlins on gremlins Cptn d'Ka: :::fingers steeple, looking to Scott::: Scott Coleridge: ::Nijil:: Anything to report from engineering's end? Tarisa: This variety seems more potent, so much so that the confined spaces of the ship allowed the "spray or stench" to be more concentrated. Their scrubbers were unable to keep up. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Woken from his trance :: Ie, well, the trouble with the replication systems appears solved and there are measures in place to prevent the same thing from happening Tarisa: ::Taps again, new display.:: The crew were experiencing a harsher array of symptoms as opposed to us. Nijil tr'Korjata: Otherwise, the station is just undergoing the normal set of issues any station would have. Scott Coleridge: ::nods to acknowledge Nijil while listening to Tarisa's addition:: Tarisa: ::Is done for the moment.:: Dacia Sandero: ::watches Tarisa and Nijl,taking it all in:: Tarisa: Miana> ::Chases after the toy gremlin.:: Nijil tr'Korjata: We have ruled out forms of radiation resulting in sleep problems. I am still having my vivid dreams, so they do not seem related. Scott Coleridge: So we have two sets of gremlins, one aboard Missouri and one aboard Aegis, each causing or somehow involved in the problems affecting both crews. Jylliene: ::continues taking notes:: Scott Coleridge: Earlier, I asked if we should consider removing the gremlins. If we decide to do that: what resources will we need to accomplish it, and where would we send them? Scott Coleridge: ::glances at Cayne, who is probably more familiar than most at the table with how extensively the gremlins have inhabited the disused parts of the station:: Cptn d'Ka: :::looks to Scott as though he has information::: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Pokes at his PADD :: Here is a hologram of the gremlin locations. :: throws it up on the table between them all :: Scott Coleridge: Captain d'Ka? Cptn d'Ka: Commander, your science officer's idea is sound. however... Cptn d'Ka: The gene sequence of those on Missouri has been altered somehow. Dacia Sandero: ::listening on:: mimipavilion: ::listening:: Cptn d'Ka: Our physicians believe that yes, they are similar to your gremlins. They are also genetically altered to add another piece to the puzzle... Scott Coleridge: ::gestures at Cayne to wait for a moment while they hear d'Ka's input:: Altered? Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Fades the holo :: Cptn d'Ka: It is not actually your gremlins, though they may play a part... Cptn d'Ka: Our physicians believe that it is a composition of both, pointing more toward those on Missouri than to your gremlins. mimipavilion: ::does not like what she is hearing:: Cptn d'Ka: We have quarantined the areas and are proceeding with caution to find more information. ::is finished::: Dacia Sandero: ::glances over:: Scott Coleridge: Noted, thank you.. Scott Coleridge: ::Cayne:: Commander, you were about to explain the logistics of removing our gremlins? Cptn d'Ka: ::polite nod::: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Brings up the holo again :: mimipavilion: ::looks at Cayne, then the holographic image:: Chirakis: :::looks to Cayne's hologram::: Tarisa: ::Looking at the hologram.:: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: We need to call a ship that can take them. A Wallenberg class could do it. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: We also would need to tag each of them so we can securely transporter them to the ship, rather than leading them through a dock. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: But, we need to get them to their native environment. Jylliene: ::wonders how they'd ensure the safety of the receiving ship:: Tarisa: I would recommend settling them in a location away from the Alliance. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: In this ship we could set up an environment just for them. Dacia Sandero: ::nods in agreement:: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Searching has already begun, but introducing a species not native to the planet is...tricky mimipavilion: ::nods:: Chirakis: :::leans forward, listening:: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: It could take a while, as we have to send a team ahead to prepare the location. Scott Coleridge: So removing them is achievable, but we need time to put everything into place. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: A full medical workup would be helpful :: Looking at the medical staff :: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Right. Scott Coleridge: Tarisa, you said that the gremlins' spray is the agent that's causing the adverse reactions among the crew? Have we started exploring an antidote or counteragent we could use? Tarisa: ::Nods.:: Yes we are exploring that option. Cptn d'Ka: :::hand up to Scott::: Scott Coleridge: Yes, Captain? Cptn d'Ka: Commander, our personnel are also working on such an agent. I will forward what they have found to your personnel. ::nods to Tarisa:: Tarisa: That will be very helpful. Scott Coleridge: Very good. Dacia Sandero: ::smiles and nods::: Certainly will. mimipavilion: Agreed Scott Coleridge: Tarisa, make that science's priority. Work with medical, who will also be continuing to look into the nature of the gremlins' physiology. Engineering might also need to assist if we decide to disperse the counteragent as some kind of aerosol. Scott Coleridge: Commanders Cayne and Kital, you're in charge of the logistics of rounding up and moving out the gremlins. Develop a concrete plan with best- and worst-case timelines based on available resources. Scott Coleridge: Consider building in some flexibility regarding your mode of transport… perhaps we will use a small convoy of ships rather than one larger vessel. It'll depend on what Starfleet can spare us. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Looks to Kital :: Scott Coleridge: Any questions? Jylliene: ::makes a note to make said plan:: Cptn d'Ka: ::has an idea regarding transporting ships, but will approach that later::: Scott Coleridge: ::looks to Chirakis and d'Ka:: Anything from either of the Captains? Chirakis: Not at the moment, Commander. Cptn d'Ka: ::Nods agreement:: Scott Coleridge: Very well. Thank you everyone for your contributions so far. Let's get back to work. Dismissed.

  4. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |21 February 2020 2 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.154 TBS is 6 hours. The time is 1400 hours (2:00 pm) Aegis Local. The latest information regarding illness, dreams, hallucinations, and other strange events on Aegis seem to have no connections. Medical and Science have been collaborating to pin down the cause(s) and hopefully find a remedy. Command has called a meeting in the conference room at 1400. The meeting invitees have been expanded to include staff from all departments.
  5. We do have an opening in security. If there is time this Friday night we can talk about coming aboard.
  6. Welcome back, CTHuskyMan. Sky Harbor Aegis runs on Friday nights @ 10 pm EST. Aegis's present date is 2 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.154 - after the devastation of ch'Rihan. Located between former Breen space the Joint Allied Powers, the station's mission is to monitor that area of space, to ensure the safety of the station's inhabitants, and to serve as a way station for cargo, guests, and ambassadorial personnel. Aegis offers varied opportunities for its simulation. Visit us on a Friday night, watch for a while, and decide if this sim is for you.

  8. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |7 February 2020 2 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.154 TBS is 12 hours. The time is 0700 hours (7:00 am) Aegis Local. Aegis and USS Missouri continue to pin down the cause of strange dreams, hallucinations, and allergies. Not everyone has been affected. Some personnel seem to have been passed over and/or no longer have a problem. Others continue to fight it off. A study that was passed on to security pointed to the gremlins’ VIP area as a possible origin, though that has yet to be verified. Approximately 15 to 20 personnel are still in the medical complex.
  9. The Little Things Security Locker Room A high pitched screeee echoed through security's locker room, the sound of Ens Stacy Slater twisting and poking at the door to her locker. “What the hell, Stace!” came from the other side. “Haven’t oiled that thing yet?” “Well, I would oil that if it took oil, Gaz! Find something that’ll stop the squeak and I’ll owe you one,” she retorted, finally twisting it enough to get her locker to closed as Ens Guido Gazelli rounded the corner and made himself comfortable against the locker next to her. “Seriously, Gaz,” she said on a sigh. “You’d think that a new starbase would at least have lockers that don’t attack you when you need ‘em.” He shrugged. “Could be worse. And it’s only the locker, right?” Another exasperated sigh, and she nodded, then straightened her equipment. “Graveyard’s got me off guard. And our little friends on deck 42, but I got....” She stopped cold. “Damn, Gaz. I left the bars in my locker.” “No problem. I got it,” he said, pushing away from the adjacent locker. One hefty jerk managed to pull the locker open. He grabbed the energy bars, then closed and secured the door without too much noise. “So, you’re on 42?” he asked, handing her the package, then continuing “Me, too,” as she slipped the bars into her satchel. “Awesome,” she managed as they moved out. “And we’re on two hour rotations, but I’m not sure it’s going to make much difference since it upsets our circadian rhythms, like the chief says.” She adjusted her uniform and ran a hand through her close cropped red hair. It glistened in the dimmed passageway illumination. The soft tread of her regulation boots might have been silent for humans, but not for gremlins. They apparently had "good sniffers", as her mom would say, and she was right. “So… what’s in the satchel,” Gaz asked as they stepped into the lift. “Smells great.” “They’re pretty good. From my mom.” Handing one to him, she continued, “I wouldn’t call them great. But our little friends love ‘em. Especially when they play up and down the passageway. They don’t make a mess so it’s no big deal.” The lift opened and she stepped out, but Gaz stared at her until the lift began to close behind him. “They play up and down the passageway?” “Yeah,” she said with a nod. “Sometimes climb the bulkhead. They play most of the night.” Slowing his pace, his skepticism echoed in his words. “They play most of the night.” “Yeah.” She stopped to stare at him. “You don’t see them, Gaz? I mean, they’re right there, coming our way.” He looked around. “No. No I don’t, Stace. We’re the only ones here.”

  11. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |7 February 2020 1 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.153 TBS is 7 hours. The time is 1800 hours (6:00 pm) Aegis Local. Science and Medical are on the verge of discovering the cause of illness that seems to target certain individuals and/or species. An immediate concern is the possibility that whatever is in the atmosphere could change genetic markers. Science is working on several things: Testing to judge the natural purpose of the illness. Is there a possibility of designed intent, or is it a side effect of something else? Will new atmospheric scrubbers from the shipyard help? Are the infected personnel safe? Are the gremlins part of the problem? Is stress from overwork causing or exacerbating the problem? Instead of hallucinations, USS Missouri personnel are fighting off allergies from the gremlin-like creatures' corporeal remains. As a precaution, they have quarantined several crew, and are in the process of obtaining new atmospheric scrubbers from the shipyards.

Cptn d'Ka: @ ::pondering:: {{Kh’éile, why would the Alien Alliance send their craft toward Aegis with only a few animals and allergens?}} Tarisa: Captain, it may not be an actual fix, but I would recommend the Missouri seek environmental scrubber replacements at the shipyard.

  13. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |31 January 2020 1 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.153 TBS is 2 hours. The time is 1000 hours (10:00 am) Aegis Local. Science and medical are on the verge of discovering the cause of illness on Aegis. It seems to target certain individuals and/or species, cause unknown. USS Missouri’s personnel have been reassembling the Alien Alliance stealth ship that tried to attack Aegis. Two things have been found beneath the rubble: the caged corporeal remains of a small species similar to the gremlins, and a metal box that appears to be a ship control mechanism. None of the Alien Alliance were aboard.
  14. The Core of the Matter USS Missouri Despite USS Missouri's advanced technology, her secondary fighter bay's atmospheric scrubbing system struggled to keep up with airborne particles. As teams slowly re-assembled the remains of the Alien Alliance stealth ship, the crew began to sneeze, cough, and lose their balance… which isn’t exactly the best thing to do when you’re standing on a fragmented ship’s hull with a razor sharp piece of the hull in your hand. As per protocol, the medical team examined all personnel who had been in the bay. After filling them with antibiotics, they were placed in quarantine. Medical personnel hunted down the culprit and adjusted the scrubbers to deal with the allergen. They scrubbed down unaffected personnel and slipped them into environmental suits, complete with sealed helmets and re-breathers. And wasn’t that fun to work in. As he searched through the wreckage, Lt Bill McGrene adjusted his helmet and began to lift a sizable piece of the ship's exterior hull. “Damn,” he muttered, checking out the section. “Looks like a piece of cockpit. Maybe a piece of the bridge?” He sighed, checked it over thoroughly, then finally hollered, “Kazaski, get over here! I need a hand!” The ensign pressed his helmet com to reply, “Comin’ atcha, sir.” Then he began to weave among the pieces toward the lieutenant. “Grab the other side, Kaz. Watch your suit and your six so your suit doesn’t tear. Heft that side over,” McGrene continued, giving Kazaski room for a healthy heave. “Be careful ‘cause there’s something under…” A loud crash echoed through the bay, catching everyone’s attention as the exterior hull flipped off, bounced a few times, and came to a clanging halt. Pausing to catch a breath, McGrene turned toward what should be the ship’s interior. “Figures,” he muttered, pointing to the next layer. “Catch a breath, Kaz. I have no idea how many layers are under here. Ask me and I’d say the Alien Alliance is playing games, and somewhere in the great beyond they’re sittin’ at a bar downing a cold one and having a great laugh.” Another deep sigh, and he turned to the ensign. “Ready for the next one, Kaz?” “Ready as I’ll ever be, sir.” “Good enough. Check your breather, take an extra breath, and let’s go.” Beneath the exterior was another layer, and under that another one before an interior cabin appeared, loaded with…. They froze, staring at the interior’s contents. A whispered, “Damn. Tell me I’m not seein’ what I’m seein’, Kaz.” Swallowing hard, Kazaski replied, “Wish I could, sir. Call medical?” “Yeah. Get ‘em here fast,” he whispered to Kaz, then shouted, “The rest of you, get back to work. You did not see this! Got it?” A chorus of “aye, aye, sir,” came through the communication system. Bill stared at the opening, wishing he’d never seen it, and praying he’d never see it again. * * * * * * * Captain d’Ka stood behind the medical complex window toward the corporeal remains that had been pulled from the wreckage. CMO Mason Mckindley and Chief Engineer Adira Hynson stood beside him, watching several personnel in protective clothing carefully remove several small bodies from a cage. “Doctor, how long had they been in the ship?” asked d’Ka soberly, his eyes flashing red with anger. “Difficult to tell, Captain,” he replied. “Given their present condition, I can say that they’ve been dead for some time. Probably frozen until they were needed.” D’ka forcefully sighed into a nod. “Species?” “Slightly similar to the gremlins on Aegis, but only slightly. At first chance, we’ll process their DNA to pin down the species.” After due consideration, D’ka turned toward Chief Engineer Hynson and pointed toward a small metal box on the opposite table. “The box, Commander? Any idea why that would accompany the cage?” “No Captain,” she replied. “As soon as Dr Mckindley has scanned the box thoroughly to make sure it’s not contaminated, he’ll pass it on to us for examination.” “And your best guess?” “A control mechanism, Captain. One explicitly aimed at Aegis.”

Alexis McFarland: ::Stirs in bed and yawns, opens her eyes and rubs them:: Annisha: It's fine. Just fine father. Scott Coleridge: ::Chirakis:: I've worked out the shorter shifts. Chirakis: ::she nods::: Dacia Sandero: ::finds the gremlins' DNA samples and puts one of them inside of a micro-scanner:: Scott Coleridge: I'll implement those starting tomorrow.

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

Chirakis: :::moves toward the command lift, stopping to speak to Cayne::: Commander Coleridge has his hands full. I must visit the medical complex. You have the con. mimipavilion: ::goes with Dacia:: What do you have? Annisha: Green. Or was it olive. Said it was in his family for generations. Na sure how he would know that, but it worked. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: I'll try to keep the station in one piece Captain. Chirakis: :::Cayne::: I should hope so. :::enters the lift::: Medical Complex. Dacia Sandero: These DNA findings between infected patients, and the gremlins' DNA. There is some certain genetic markers in their samples that match, and hadn't before, before the gremlins arrived. Alexis McFarland: Green milk? I haven't tried green milk before. Tarisa: ::Sees Mimi enter. :: First of all, the ban on stimulants was a correct choice. They were making symptoms worse. But this was not what we called you for. This was. ::Brings up the sample data, cross referenced with the Gremlin data.:: Dacia Sandero: ::nods:: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Wondered what kind of medical facility this was as no one asked him anything, but reading this publication was all the attention he needed :: Annisha: I think it's got some kind of plant in it, perhaps it's all plant. Alexis McFarland: Hmm, interesting. How'd it taste? mimipavilion: Hmmm... so the gremlins were more or less the cause. Tarisa: It seems to be localized in specific species so far. Dacia Sandero: That seems to be the case, yes. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Reading up on brain therapy, getting a glimpse of the medical level the station risen to, at least two years ago :: Chirakis: :::exits the lift at medical and enters:: Tarisa: How it was done is still a mystery. Perhaps something to do with their stench.

Dacia Sandero: ::nods:: Annisha: We have the pattern in the replicator. I'll send au it. Alexis McFarland: Hm, okay. I'll try it tonight. Alexis McFarland: You warm it up before drinking it? Annisha: :: contorts her nose :: I think a little :: Tarisa: I understand the Missouri also has issues. Dacia Sandero: Mmm. Dacia Sandero: They transported the gremlins, right?

Dacia Sandero: Nurse> :::sees the Captain:: Mimi and Dr Sandero are in the medical lab, Dacia Sandero: Nurse> Oh sorry, we'll get to you. Head to the bio-bed when you're ready. Tarisa: If they have an advanced form of what we are dealing with, then the size of the station relative to the ship might be a factor.

  16. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |24 January 2020 1 June 2388 - Stardate 2388.153 TBS is 13 hours. The time is 0700 hours (7:00 am) Aegis Local. Medical, Engineering, and Science are still on the trail of the illness. They believe that an element in caffeine might be the trigger for extreme fatigue, nightmares, and hallucinations. As a precaution, Captain Chirakis has banned coffee and anything else containing caffeine in CnC. Aboard USS Missouri, personnel are experiencing allergic reactions, source unknown. Admiral Mulligan has informed Captain Chirakis that Ragor Tal, a powerful and merciless leader, is now connected to the Alien Alliance.
  17. Times One Thousand In engineering. Everything going wrong around me. Alarms going off. Nothing I did was making any difference. It was like the glitches times one thousand. ~Scott Coleridge Captain Chirakis arrived in CnC well before the change of watch, after her daily bout with Lt Klaxon in the security complex training room. Having been given orders to ignore her rank and fight to kill, the lieutenant had become quite an opponent and had mastered skills that could have easily ended her life. But this morning? His steps were uneven, his movements awkward, and his attacks slow. He was disoriented and often unable to focus. Kirel grabbed his shoulders, but he seemed to be in another world. “Lieutenant?” No response. She gave him a firm shake. “Klaxon! Respond!” His eyes glazed over. A trainer on the adjacent mat took firm hold just before Klaxon fainted. He called for assistance and beamed him to medical. Extreme fatigue had overtaken him, as it had many on Aegis. An hour later, the Officer of the Watch turned to the sound of the command lift. “Good morning, Captain,” he said on approach. “Situation normal.” “No ‘AFU’ this morning?” She asked, referring to SNAFU with a wry grin. Her glance swept the area: a ritual honed from SI-5 days, but still pertinent for any entry as far as she was concerned. “No ‘AFU’ this morning, ma’am. Coffee?” “Coffee?” she said sternly. “Decaffeinated, ma’am. It’s supposed to have everything… uh… all the bad stuff removed, ma’am.” Having just dealt with Klaxon, she didn’t trust anything remotely connected with coffee—at least until science and medical verified its use. “Remove the coffee, Lieutenant,” she said quietly, but firmly. “Remove everything even remotely connected to coffee, caffeine, or otherwise until Dr Pavilion pronounces it harmless. Understood?” “Yes, Captain.” After a curt nod she entered her office. Admiral Mullins of Federation Security would soon appear onscreen. In ordinary times they had reported weekly, but these were not ordinary times. Their weekly reports were now daily, encryption was beyond the norm, and security protocol was engaged in her office. Kirel’s desk viewscreen soon came alive with the image of Admiral Mullins. He seemed weary, as though he’d been awake all night, and a man of his age certainly did not need to. It triggered an alarm, like waiting for the next shoe to drop. “Good morning, Kirel. You’re early.” “As are you, Admiral. Should I ask why, or should I leave well enough alone?” The admiral’s slight grunt turned into a smirk. “Well enough alone is best. Report?” “Yes, Admiral.” She leaned forward to rest her elbows on the desk and thumb through her tablet. “Regarding glitches on station, those have surprisingly disappeared. However, we are now dealing with ...” She checked her list. “... approximately fifty three crew and some families who have extreme fatigue, strange dreams—they call them ‘nightmares’—and hallucinations. Science and medical are working diligently to diagnose the problem. “USS Missouri’s work on the Alien Alliance stealth ship is progressing. They have broken the ship’s code. Apparently a species similar to our gremlins—small, ignorant, and naive—was convinced to take the ship and breach Aegis’s space, for reasons unknown. No personnel of the Alien Alliance were aboard. “Missouri also reports that their personnel have fallen ill with symptoms similar to, but not the same as ours. So far, their illness presents itself as an allergic reaction. Captain d’Ka will give you more information. That is all I have at the moment, Admiral.” As Kirel relaxed in her chair, Admiral Mullins nodded into a dire expression, staring at the viewscreen. His exhaustion had turned suddenly to grief. His hands folded, he leaned forward and took a moment to gather his thoughts. “Thank you, Kirel.” He paused again, wiping a hand down his face before continuing. “Kirel…. two of our best operatives were taken hostage... and brutally tortured for information. Knowing these men, I doubt that they revealed anything. What was left of their bodies was bagged and sent to Starfleet Command with a note from….” Mullins stopped to stare at her. “... Ragor Tal.”

Chirakis: ::stands::: Dr Pavilion, Captain d'Ka has information regarding the illness that their personnel are experiencing. Dacia Sandero: I know raktajino doesn't use caffeine, as caffeine is a Terran stimulant. We don't have any Klingons reporting to feel these symptoms. I wonder if that is due to their physiology or if raktajino is affected by this virus. Chirakis: And... if you can spare her, Dr Sandero should know. Dacia Sandero: We could try that. Jylliene: ::enters quarters:: Dacia Sandero: I wonder if there's anyone we know who consume it exclusively that's non-Klingon and if they too are experiencing anything abnormal. mimipavilion: ::a bit surprised:: OK ::Dacia:: Can you come here for a bit?

Dacia Sandero: (and water his rhododendrons!) mimipavilion: ::looks up at Chirakis:: Wow… Chirakis: ::Nods:: Unfortunately, the species that navigated that ship was one similar to the Gremlins on Aegis. Dacia Sandero: I imagine they too are working long hours with copious amounts of coffee? Alexis McFarland: ::heads to the lift to the commerce area:: Dacia Sandero: Ahh... mimipavilion: Hmmm... Chirakis: :::Dacia:: I doubt that caffeine itself is the cause. Chirakis: ::looks to Scott:: Ideas, Commander? Nijil tr'Korjata: :: He escorts Annisha to their couch then brings up the UT specs on the big screen :: Scott Coleridge: If our difficulties stem from the ship, then that might explain why we're having trouble understanding them. Dacia Sandero: Probably not, I suppose.

Alexis McFarland: ::thinks St. Louis is a fine city, as she makes her way to the food court:: Blubby's again, or somewhere else? mimipavilion: I'm wondering if the stealth ship is emitting some type of radiation that is affecting everyone. Has anyone beamed over from the Missouri recently? Chirakis: No, not from Missouri. However, I did go to Missouri at the request of the captain. Johnson Kenyon: ::looks up from a seat in Main Engineering. Realizes he had just engaged in microsleep:: Chirakis: It's possible that I brought it back. And I am immune, as is Captain d'Ka.

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

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

It does lead to long term fatigue and crashes.. but it’s a double-edged sword as people need the energy to stay alert with all these extra hours people have been working. Chirakis: Restless, as in.... unable to sleep? Alexis McFarland: ::pets Annisha:: Poor Annisha. Maybe you need some warm milk or some tea? That helps me sleep better.

Chirakis: :::slight pause to mull that over::: Understandable. Dacia Sandero: ::nods at Mimi:: Johnson Kenyon: +Dacia+ yes, Doctor, but without those stimulants how will we keep our crew alert?

Annisha: I did.. Tarisa: I believe certain species are either immune or slower to respond to what is happening. My race in particular, and Betazeds neither have reported problems. Alexis McFarland: You're having them again? Recently? Tarisa: Miana> ::Frowns as she snuggles Annisha and Alexis.:: Johnson Kenyon: +OPS+ Please inform the command staff Chirakis: ::casually continues her usual pace around CnC, then enters her office, closing the door behind her::: Alexis McFarland: ::snuggles Miana too:: Annisha: Yeah.. Dacia Sandero: ::nods:: That's right Tae'Lynn Dran: Might need to do a survey of the major species on board. I believe Human and Romulan are two of the larger populations. Jylliene: +Kenyon+ I will. Anything else I can do for you? Dacia Sandero: The Vulcans I.ve spoken too also don't seem to be affected Jylliene: ::preps the message:: Tarisa: ::Nods.:: We should consider Medical to begin taking blood samples as well.

Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Nice of the Captain to visit, but still a bit depressed.

But I've had some interesting yet intermittent symptoms. Johnson Kenyon: (wait a minute... Dr. Pepper is a stimulant!) Dacia Sandero: Dr. P> Hello.

Johnson Kenyon: As you know, many of the crew are experiencing bad dreams and sleepiness... Tarisa: I see. Dacia Sandero: ::overhears:: Hmm. mimipavilion: That maybe the difference. mimipavilion: ::takes a tricorder and scans Scott:: Annisha: I don't want au to catch what I have. Johnson Kenyon: Medical and science are reviewing the problem and believe our stimulants are not helping the situation and may be contributing to the problem Alexis McFarland: Hmm, but we never killed anyone. Alexis McFarland: I killed a fly once that buzzed around my head, but that's it. Tarisa: Miana> ::Still snuggling.:: I feel fine. Chirakis: ::takes a seat and waves off another doctor who approaches, then she rereads the information from Missouri:: Johnson Kenyon: Therefore, I am ordering all engineering staff to refrain from stimulant food and drinks until further notice. Tarisa: ::Perks up as she notices the Captain had entered.:: Annisha: As my father told me once, at the end of the day this is my demon alone. Johnson Kenyon: ::bit of an angry uproar is heard:: HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO WORK! Scott Coleridge: ::being scanned:: Chirakis: ::notices Tarisa as well, but continues to read::: Scott Coleridge: It was the strangest thing. I would have chalked it up to just a bad night's sleep, but Captain Chirakis and a few others looked very worn today. Scott Coleridge: I wonder if something's going around? mimipavilion: ::finishes the scan and looks at the analysis:: Dacia Sandero: ::goes over::: Oh hello, Captain. Are you also feeling symptoms too? Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Drinking some tea :: Johnson Kenyon: ::raises arms high:: Yes, I know you would have that concern. So, I'm authorizing micro-breaks as needed to maintain alertness... Alexis McFarland: Hm, I hope you can conquer it.. ahh, again. Tarisa: ::Walking over.:: I do not usually frequent Medical, but I do find it odd that the Command Staff would both visit at the same time. Dacia Sandero: Dr. Pepper> ::quietly:: I'd also recommend trying to limit hours as much as you can to allow people to get rest. Chirakis: ::looks up when she realizes that Dacia is speaking to her::: Chirakis: Dr. Sandero. Apologies. I am somewhat absorbed in my work. Dacia Sandero: Of course, I can come back when you're ready. Chirakis: I had symptoms, but they seem to have subsided. Johnson Kenyon: ::nods to Doctor:: Furthermore, any non essential duties will be curtailed to allow for additional off duty time Annisha: I heard a rumor from a shopkeeper who heard it from a customer who heard it from a maintenance crew who overheard a nurse who heard it in earshot of a Doctor that the whole station is having bad dreams. Johnson Kenyon: Doctor, do you want to add anything? Chirakis: I'm in good health, Doctor. I can wait. Alexis McFarland: That might explain why so many people seem to be more edgier than usual. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: closes his eyes, mumbles:: Afai oi ai oe, falia oe lava. Johnson Kenyon: ::from the engineers present:: How's more sleep going to help with my nightmares! I can't sleep without getting them! Dacia Sandero: Dr Pepper> If you're feeling tired, try to take periodic breaks even if it is just to take a walk or something.

Dacia Sandero: ::begins to do a detailed scan of Tarisa:: I noticed that as well, I've not been experiencing it myself, nor has Alexis or her family either. Well, that makes two of us. Amanda and I were just looking over medical reports to see if there's any kind of pattern to this, but so far I haven't come across anything significant. Nijil tr'Korjata: Annisha, aua le faia lena mea. Chirakis: Lieutenant, I am sure that you are aware of the prevalence of lethargy lately. Have your team look into the air... the units, the ducts... everything. That could be the problem. mimipavilion: ::grabs a tricorder:: Tarisa: Perhaps it is because our sleep patterns are different? Chirakis: It has happened before, though not to this degree. Johnson Kenyon: Captain, you think there is some agent responsible? Annisha: :: She faced him with her sorrowful and wet eyes :: Father? I don't understand. Chirakis: An agent? Chirakis: Explain. Amanda Davis PhD: ::checking on Lt Wright, who seems to be sleeping peacefully::: Nijil tr'Korjata: Ou ... o se mea e sese. :: He reached out and hugged her tightly :: Amanda Davis PhD: ::vital signs seem good:: Dacia Sandero: Well, physically, you're absolutely fine. Nothing out of the ordinary here. Perhaps.. the people experiencing these symptoms seem to mostly be the engineering and security staff which have been under alot more stress lately than the rest of us. I'd imagine that's playing a part in this. Johnson Kenyon: Agent.... a generic term for chemical, biological, or physical thing which can affect beings. Tae'Lynn Dran: ::not finding anything obvious in the logs. Puts the data through the computer to find any possible correlations:: Chirakis: Check all possibilities, Mr Kenyon. Johnson Kenyon: Aye, Captain. We'll look into it. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Is there something you can prescribe Dr. Pavilion? Coffee is not cutting it. Chirakis: Take as many engineers as you need, especially those who are not falling asleep. Dacia Sandero: Anyone in science also feeling the same symptoms as the others?

Nijil tr'Korjata: Ioe. Chirakis: Excellent. Carry on. Annisha: Oh, that is almost Rihan. Johnson Kenyon: ::takes an empty console on the CnC and starts relaying orders:: Dacia Sandero: ::nods:: What are their sleep patterns like? Lot of over time? ::nods:: Yeah, Nijil is particularly adversely affected as well, even speaking to be in some strange language... Johnson Kenyon: +Medical+ Lt Kenyon to Medical. Tarisa: ::Tilts her head curiously.:: A strange language? Cdr Wyatt Cayne: In an effort of completeness, I had a dream. Is there any reason I would think you are chasing me while I'm on a mission? I look for you and I can't find you. Maybe I'm just paranoid. Dacia Sandero: ::nods:: Don't know what language it is. Though I am no linguistics expert. +Kenyon+ Medical here, go ahead? Nijil tr'Korjata: :: taps his head :: Atonu o se manuaga o le ulu. Dacia Sandero: Almost sounds Polynesian.

Annisha: :: She shrugs :: I don't know what au said. :: The same server brings over a doughnut to Annisha :: Oh! :: eats :: Tarisa: Polynesian? Dacia Sandero: An Earth language of the Pacific Region. Johnson Kenyon: +Dr. Sandero+ The Captain has asked me to investigate if there is something being sent through the station that is affecting nearly everyone. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: If you are chasing after me there are far easier methods than in my dreams, however it feels sinister. Tarisa: I see. ::Hears Kenyon.:: Johnson Kenyon: +Dr. Sandero+ but, honestly, I haven't been affected and it would be helpful if I could narrow the parameters. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Many of my missions involved isolation. Perhaps that's coming to bite my in the backside. mimipavilion: I wouldn't chase, unless it was an emergency. Dacia Sandero: +Kenyon+ That's an interesting theory. Would explain a lot... yes, we'll help in any way we can. Amanda Davis PhD: Jake> ::seems to be waking up::: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Really? Nice to know you would though. Other than old what does your scanner say? Chirakis: ::watching the tactical monitors as she mulls over her dream last night... and Lt Garand's black eye::: Johnson Kenyon: +Dr Sandero+ Do you have any idea what we should look for? Dacia Sandero: +Kenyon+ I'm not seeming to be affected either, seems to be the people who having been overworking recently such as the case with your department in particular. Annisha: :: Eats :: Au should see a doctor. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: does a 'na, really' gesture :: mimipavilion: ::Cayne:: Well, nothing that's hasn't been seen. Johnson Kenyon: +Dr. Sandero+ I've instituted a buddy policy in engineering to make sure we catch those so affected early. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: So it's true... mimipavilion: What is, commander? Amanda Davis PhD: ::Jake:: Good morning, Lieutenant. How are you? Cdr Wyatt Cayne: My old. :: smiles :: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Maybe it's the mileage. Amanda Davis PhD: Jake> ::weakly:: Hey Doc. Not too bad. Head still hurts, but other than that, I'm good. mimipavilion: ::a little concerned:: ok Dacia Sandero: ::looks at Tarisa:: +Kenyon+ That, I'm not sure.

Johnson Kenyon: +Dr. Sandero+ I'll stop by shortly and review any findings you might have. Chirakis: :::moves toward Scott::: (w) Commander... is it possible that there is more than just the air ducts affecting us? mimipavilion: ::Cayne:: Don't blame you.

Johnson Kenyon: ::arriving on Medical deck, walking down to Medical:: Amanda Davis PhD: Jake> That gorgeous woman standing by my bead. Don't even know her name. Scott Coleridge: For a naturally-occurring substance to cause such a specific set of symptoms across multiple species? No, if there's something more to this than simple fatigue, I'd lay my latinum on it being designed. Engineered. Johnson Kenyon: ::entering medical, looking for Dr. Sandero:: Annisha: :: places her hand atop his :: We'll figure it out and maybe stop the station from spinning. mimipavilion: I'm fine.

Tarisa: ::Tail starts to swish.:: Scott Coleridge: Yes. Something that affects multiple humanoid species. Some kind of airborne chemical. Or, you know... maybe a virus. An actual biological one this time, not a computer one. Obviously. Amanda Davis PhD: Jake> ::heavy sigh:: Annisha: What? :: studied him for a moment :: Oh. About the man I killed. I dreamed it over and over. Johnson Kenyon: ::sees Tarisa and Dr. Sandero:: Scott Coleridge: But if this is another type of attack, it seems like a very ineffectual one, compared to the chaos created by the systems virus. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Nijil looked shakened, hoping this trama had left her :: Chirakis: (w) And how exactly would that work besides making certain species ill or acting strangely? Dacia Sandero: ::scans again:: I'll have to perform a more detailed scan to determine, though I guess I could also say that of myself if that is the case. Johnson Kenyon: ::moves to Tarisa and Dr. Sandero, listens:: Amanda Davis PhD: Jake> ::relaxes into the bed::: She was... so... beautiful.... ::sleeps::: Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Nods :: Okay, but if you ever want to talk. Let me know. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: remains seated on the biobed, resting for a moment :: mimipavilion: ::slight glare:: I'll think about it. Scott Coleridge: Keep in mind this is all outside my area of expertise. You'd be better off consulting science or medical. But we're looking at something that involves neurotransmitter and hormone inhibitors. Dacia Sandero: Hello. We were just trying to see if there was anything in Tarisa, or my biology that's acting as immunity to what 's happening to the others. It's worth a check. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: hops off the bed :: Tarisa: ::Catches a scent, turns to Kenyon.:: Scott Coleridge: It could interfere with melatonin production, stimulate adenosine receptors... basically act like a stimulant. Johnson Kenyon: Doctor, do you drink coffee by any chance? Chirakis: ::considers that:: I will. Tarisa: Are any other telepaths being affected? Scott Coleridge: I don't know how it could cause nightmares, but certain psychotropic drugs can induce those, so it's possible. Dacia Sandero: None of the other Betazoids on the station seem to be affected by this, to my knowledge. Me? No, I tend to drink tea over coffee. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Looks for the door :: I'll be on my way. :: exits :: Dacia Sandero: Not that I know of ::;to Tarisa:: Annisha: :: munches on he doughnut :: mimipavilion: ::Cayne:: You're free to go. Johnson Kenyon: Is it possible that the problem is affected by those who drink coffee or other stimulants? Chirakis: ::quirks a brow::: I will consult Dr Pavilion and whomever else needs to collaborate. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: nods then leaves :: Dacia Sandero: Possible.. it was a coffee I made that caused the replicators to malfunction. Scott Coleridge: Would you like me to go to medical and have them run tests on me, given my rough sleep the night before? I had a great sleep last night. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Passes others entering medical :: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Hugs her again, harder this time :: Johnson Kenyon: you think there's a link between the coffee made by the replicators? Annisha: Ugh, I'm fine father. mimipavilion: ::walks over to Dacia and the others:: Chirakis: ::nods::: Excellent idea. When they are done, they can examine me for my strange dreams. Dacia Sandero: It's possible. Chirakis: (prepare to pause) Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Looks behind him, seeing if he's being followed :: Johnson Kenyon: I think we need to scan the coffee then.

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

Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: His mug is shaking as he brings the rim to his lips :: Chirakis: ::she turns to get coffee and notices Cayne::: Johnson Kenyon: ::arriving at the CnC:: Chirakis: :::watches him as she pours her cup::: Chirakis: ::Looks up when Kenyon enters:: Good morning, Lieutenant. Dacia Sandero: Physically, you seem to be doing okay. ::to Nijil:: How's your energy? mimipavilion: ::sees that Jake's face is pale:: Hmmm... Johnson Kenyon: Good Morning Captain, is there an engineering station here? mimipavilion: ::Scans his head a little more detailed:: Chirakis: :::watching Cayne as she talks to Kenyon::: Indeed there is. Station five. Chirakis: And it seems to be available at the moment. Chirakis: ::Kenyon:: The coffee is fresh, if you wish. Johnson Kenyon: How long has that been unattended... ::looks at the Captain:: No thank you. Not a coffee drinker Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Damned coffee is not helping. :: he mutters :: Tarisa: ::Perks up as Kenyon arrives.:: Scott Coleridge: Me neither, but needs must. ::knocks back the last 700 mL:: Chirakis: Not long. Shift change often frees up a console. ::slowly moves away from the dispenser to step to Cayne::: Nijil tr'Korjata: I am feeling well.. I think. Johnson Kenyon: ::moves to station 5, notices Tarisa and focuses himself:: Jylliene: ::continues with the work, listening to the various exchanges:: Chirakis: ::to Cayne, quietly::: Commander, you seem disturbed. Dacia Sandero: You think, eh? Well, I suppose that's an improvement. You eating okay, moving okay? Annisha hasn't completely worn you out yet? mimipavilion: ::doesn't like the neural scan:: Dacia Sandero: ::checks her tricorder:: Johnson Kenyon: ::takes a seat at station 5 and checks out the console configuration:: Nijil tr'Korjata: O la’u fa’ aliliuga lautele o le ... Nijil tr'Korjata: :: stops speaking :: Tarisa: ::Returns her focus back to her console.:: Chirakis: Jake> ::drops into a deep sleep::: Nijil tr'Korjata: E mafai ona e malamalama ia te a’u? Dacia Sandero: Is your UT functioning correctly, or have you been taking Hawaiian lessons from Leilani? Johnson Kenyon: ::notes there is no scheduled engineer on CnC, modifies the duty roster to add one:: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Flips out his padd :: Shakes his head no :: mimipavilion: ::finishes her scan and notices the change in Jake:: Lieutenant, can you hear me? Chirakis: Jake> ::out cold… not in danger, just in a very deep sleep::: Nijil tr'Korjata: Dreams... :: the UT got it that time :: Dacia Sandero: You having dreams too? About red heads? Scott Coleridge: ::Kenyon:: Anything new to report, Mr. Kenyon? mimipavilion: ::notices that he's in a deep sleep:: Alright sweet dreams. Chirakis: ::Cayne seems occupied with his work, though he looks worn out:: Nijil tr'Korjata: Yes, dreams in the same place each time. Very detailed. Johnson Kenyon: ::turns head to look at Coleridge:: Sir... No. I was thinking we need more consistent coverage of the CnC. mimipavilion: ::exits the room and goes to update his file:: Scott Coleridge: Coverage? Tae'Lynn Dran: ::gasps as she sits up straight. Doesn't remember falling asleep at her computer in the lab but must have:: Johnson Kenyon: ::to Coleridge:: Honestly, I have never felt I could just pop in and check on the CnC until now... Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Puts down his mug, a tear streams down his face :: Johnson Kenyon: ::to Coleridge:: Does everyone seem out of it? Johnson Kenyon: ::looks around the room:: Chirakis: ::was about to move on, however::: (w) Commander? Scott Coleridge: ::Kenyon:: Well, this *is* only your second day as acting chief engineer. But yes, you are welcome to "check on" us if you need to. Nijil tr'Korjata: No, mine has green hair. Johnson Kenyon: ::Coleridge:: What I mean is that I have the impression the engineering station is not occupied that frequently Nijil tr'Korjata: And I have, in my dream I have gray. Dacia Sandero: The same as experienced as before? ::scans:: Ahh, green hair. Dacia Sandero: Like an old man? Chirakis: Jake> ::suddenly gasps, fully awake, screaming::: NOOO NOOO... Alexis McFarland: ::is awake and brushes her teeth:: Nijil tr'Korjata: No, she's female..:: green faced :: And so am I. mimipavilion: ::hears Jake and runs to him:: Lieutenant. Scott Coleridge: No, that's correct. Commander Kital can handle most of our ordinary systems-related needs, and for anything more serious we just call you up. Nijil tr'Korjata: I am never myself in this dream, but I am the same...woman, each time I visit. Chirakis: Jake> ::::stops, looks around, and winces against the pain, then leans back on the bed::: mimipavilion: ::Jake:: What's wrong, Lieutenant? Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Captain. I had a recent terrifying nightmare. Johnson Kenyon: ::Coleridge:: It might be presumptive of me, but I think we need someone here full time to serve as a liaison to Engineering Chirakis: (w) One of which you cannot speak here? Dacia Sandero: Ahh, I see. Sometimes I have dreams like that too. Though, I assume you've already discussed all this in detail with Dr. Davis. Jylliene: ((Chamomile tea, melatonin, AND shore leave, perhaps. And also a plushie.)) Cdr Wyatt Cayne: An SI Op, so pretty sure it's not cleared. Nijil tr'Korjata: I've not told Jylliene. I can only imagine the ribbing I'd get Chirakis: (w) Use my office if you wish. See if you can rest. Scott Coleridge: You're the acting chief engineer. You're within your prerogative to assign someone if you like. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: No, I should remain at my post, and not cry into my coffee. Chirakis: Jake> :::not really all together, he stares at Mimi, as though he doesn't understand her::: Chirakis: ::Cayne::: Very well. Dacia Sandero: Well, your secret's safe with me. Doctor-Patient confidentiality. Nijil tr'Korjata: Some ie, but...it feels like I'm crossing a barrier. Nijil tr'Korjata: Like a barrier of this is a holodeck to this is reality. Johnson Kenyon: ::Coleridge:: Thank you sir. I'll send someone up shortly mimipavilion: Lieutenant, look at me, focus on my sound, do you understand me? Nijil tr'Korjata: I feel the hair, the species difference.. Height, gender obviously. Chirakis: Jake> ::blank stare:: Nijil tr'Korjata: Her, err, my vision is better than my own, hearing too. Dacia Sandero: You're a ‘her’ in your dreams? Johnson Kenyon: ::stands... notices Tarisa's tail and stops to stare before leaving:: mimipavilion: Alright LT. ::scans him again:: Nijil tr'Korjata: Ie, laugh if au must. Scott Coleridge: ::doesn't notice Kenyon staring, too busy thinking about his dream of engineering:: Chirakis: Jake> ::seems to wake up:: Doc... I saw... this woman... :::deep breath:: again. She was... being tortured. Johnson Kenyon: ::smiles to himself and heads to the TL:: mimipavilion: Clarify Chirakis: Jake> Just… bad dream, Doc. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: wipes a tear away :: Tarisa: ::Grabs a PADD, loading a couple reports on it and heads for the lift.:: Johnson Kenyon: ::enters the lift at the same time as Tarisa apparently:: Chirakis: Jake> ::panting to get a grip::: Dacia Sandero: That's fine. I never dreamt of being a guy I admit. mimipavilion: ::ponders that for a moment:: I'm going to have our counselor talk with you ok. Chirakis: Jake> ::eyes closed::: Yes, ma'am. Tarisa: ::Gives Kenyon a nice smile as she orders the lift to the lab.: Nijil tr'Korjata: If I could I'd show au, though I don't think Jylliene would approve mimipavilion: ::props up his bed up a bit:: Good. I'll let her know. Chirakis: ::in the command chair, paging through information, but not really focusing on it:: Johnson Kenyon: ::cannot help but smile:: Johnson Kenyon: Engineering ::to Computer:: Dacia Sandero: ::smiles:: I suppose I could always read your thoughts and try to see it in your memories. Johnson Kenyon: ::to Tarisa:: I'm looking forward to our dinner date Nijil tr'Korjata: Could au see my dreams, or my waking moments? Tarisa: ::Nods.:: I am as well. mimipavilion: ::Jake:: Do feel a little better sitting up a bit. Chirakis: Jake> No, ma'am. Head hurts big time. mimipavilion: ::nods:: Alright. ::gives him a hypo to help:: Nijil tr'Korjata: I may have au perform the procedure anyway, for my own edification. Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: Strange things are happening. Chirakis: Thank you all for the last year. Next sim will be in the year 2020. Chirakis: TBS will be another day. We will begin at 7 am. Chirakis: Questions from the crew? Johnson Kenyon: nothing here Chirakis: Comments or questions from Commander Coleridge? Scott Coleridge: No Chirakis: Very well... Chirakis: A Happy New Year to all of you. Stay off the roads if you can. Chirakis: Crew dismissed. Be well. Be Safe. Don’t forget your towel.
  25. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis |27 December 2019 30 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.151 (Unofficial Sim) TBS is 15 hours. The time is 0700 hours (7:00 am) Aegis Local. Engineering and science are still dealing with the virus that caused chaos throughout the station. They aim to harden the station systems against further attacks of that nature. Cdr Korjata has been released from the medical complex, but will not return to duty until he is cleared. A Starfleet Command Engineer is in the medical complex after his toolbox landed on his head. He insists that a “drop dead gorgeous” women distracted him when she kept passing by. However, no woman was in that area. Security is checking surveillance footage to verify his claim.
