  1. =/\= Aegis Mission Brief 12/7/18 =/\= 1 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.122 TBS is zero. The time is 1300 hours (1:00 PM) Aegis local. The station is still fairly quiet. The Dahlem conduit is completely inactive and not visible. They have installed a conduit barrier for the safety of our ships. Dr Pavilion, Ens Dran, and Mid Dumont are working on the cosmic ray suits. Ltjg Kenyon is working on the fusion reactor with other engineers.

Alexis McFarland: @ Oh. I'm just playing against the computer Jylliene: Are they a metal foundry? Chirakis: They are not registered. We have no idea who they are. mimipavilion: ::nods to the two green science officers:: Chirakis: Pyrotechnics? As in... explosions? Annisha: @ I'm trying to take over the galaxy.. or at least the quadrant Jylliene: It has a wide range of uses. Yes, that.. but also in just making the required substances for molded desserts. Alexis McFarland: @ Good luck. Theo: Yes Doctor ::proceeds:: Tae'Lynn Dran: Nothing abnormal yet. Jylliene: ::shrug:: Its potential uses are too wide-ranging to know without consulting them specifically mimipavilion: Her bio readings are holding steady. Chirakis: ::takes a moment, staring::: Desserts. ::skeptical:: Tae'Lynn Dran: Should we make her run around the room or something? Tarisa: @ Miana> Ooooh Are you winning? Jylliene: And even then, they could tell us one thing and then use it for another, though perhaps the molarity they ordered would point out obvious lies. Annisha: @ :: shake head :: No, he has the Bajorans and Tellarites pinning my forces down in a nebula mimipavilion: We were standing still when we were 'transported' to the Voad. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Takes the plate off his 'table' and sits upon it :: Alexis McFarland: @Uh oh. Maybe you need more allies. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: under his breath :: This has been here all along. Chirakis: ::considers that and it makes no sense::: Theo: ::Pavilion:: Are the Dahlem telepathic? Tae'Lynn Dran: Oh I suppose so. Well then. Jylliene: Well...I suppose a molded dessert could be considered to be forged or shaped like molten metal, so the name could still fit. But I rather doubt it. mimipavilion: Yes they are. But not with all species. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Scanning as he walked, looking for leaks or anything that could kill the people on the station :: Tae'Lynn Dran: Telepathy seems to be their main form of communication within the species. Theo: I see, then perhaps the suit is activated in that manner. Jylliene: ((Those "raindrop cakes" do seem to be a thing, though)) Chirakis: ::begins a pace, not her usual one, but the one she uses when she is concentrating - the wear-out-the-carpet one::: Chirakis: (So I have heard.)

Alexis McFarland: (Don't look at us) Tarisa: I have no intention of walking out of an airlock. Despite the Human rumors that cats have nine lives, I assure you, Mithraans only have one... Annisha: (we are on Volnar) Jylliene: ::even though she's been gone for a little while now, doesn't mean it couldn't be something she started up:: Fletcher Jackson: Uh... Captain. They say they’re making a bomb. Jylliene: Well, that's surprisingly forthcoming of them. Tae'Lynn Dran: No, the fabric is not airtight. Chirakis: +com+ Garand - they're making a bomb. Get in there. NOW! Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Thinks :: I should have some kind of headset for this... I need to work on this... Theo: No offense intended, Commander.

Annisha: @ Au are square... ha ha Alexis McFarland: @He he. I only just started, so my house is dirt. Tae'Lynn Dran: We might want to sample the nanites within the fabric. I don't know if we could figure out their coding but an examination might give some more clues. Theo: ::Dran:: I would gladly volunt... Oh I see, pardon me. Chirakis: Garand> +com+ ::screams in the background:: Got 'em, Captain. They're kids. ::the kids scream:: Take them to security? Nijil tr'Korjata: +taps+ Kenyon, status? Chirakis: +Garand+ And inform their parents. Alexis McFarland: (See, it's not just us getting into trouble lol) Jylliene: ::wonders what in the ever-loving elements is going on:: Wait, so the foundry request for the acid was from kids in the school? Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: watching the bomb incident from his post :: Jylliene: To make a bomb? Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+ I have had a long and fruitful conversation with some operators Chirakis: ::Jylliene:: Apparently. Tarisa: Seems the suit may not respond to thought like I had hoped. I was concentrating on a small shield. Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+ I'll be there shortly. Chirakis: Although, from their screams, they seem very young. I would guess approximately ten terran years. Tarisa: @ Miana> :;Sneezes:: Tae'Lynn Dran: It may just not have a shield to respond to that command. mimipavilion: ::nods to Tarisa:: Well what's next. Alexis McFarland: @Is someone talking about you Miana? ::smiles:: Tarisa: Possible. What other function should I focus on then? Johnson Kenyon: +exiting TL on Main Engineering deck:: Tarisa: @ Miana> Someone is talking about me? ::Confused:: Tae'Lynn Dran: It was used for transport. Be careful though. Chirakis: ::mutters:: Children... Tae'Lynn Dran: Pulling you out of a bulkhead would be even worse than a step out an airlock. Alexis McFarland: @It's an old Earth thing. If someone is talking about you, it makes you sneeze. Theo: We need a Betazoid. mimipavilion: OK we know it's used for transport, ::thinks:: what about a diagnostics screen of some type. Dacia Sandero: ::sneezes:: Tarisa: ::Nods.:: I will give it a try. ::Thinks of the Main Sickbay.:: Tarisa: @ Miana> That is odd. ::Giggles.:: Theo: We need a Betazoid, STAT. Jylliene: Why in the world would they even decide to try something like that? ::ponders:: Dacia Sandero: Hm. ::tidies up:: Johnson Kenyon: ::entering Main Engineering, looking for Subcommander Nijil:: Chirakis: ::finally relaxes some:: Lt Garand will take care of the situation. ::Jylliene:: We will soon find out. Jylliene: ::nods:: Alexis McFarland: @ ::giggles:: It is.. Jylliene: ::returns to her work:: mimipavilion: Relax midshipman. Theo: Aye Nijil tr'Korjata: +Kenyon+ What did they have to say? Chirakis: ::Cayne:: Commander, I don't suppose you would like a transfer from tactical to main security? ::slight smirk::: Tarisa: Seems teleportation is beyond its limits as well. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: +Garand+ What's the situation? Tae'Lynn Dran: Bio readings unchanged. There's been some minor subspace flux. Alexis McFarland: @ ::Crafts a wooden sword to fight monsters and chop down trees:: Johnson Kenyon: ::seeing Nijil, walks over to him::: We were just talking about the how the reactors work and where i might be able to find out where the extra power drain is coming from Tae'Lynn Dran: We may just not know the right commands. Chirakis: Garand> +com+ At this point, sir, we're hunting for their parents. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Nods :: Probably out of specification. Once we find out which one we'll have to shut it down. Tarisa: Possibly. Maybe a specific thought, or a thought in their language. Johnson Kenyon: ::Nijil:: Unfortunately, I have the impression that tracking down this energy drain isn't going to be as easy as I thought Theo: ::making notes on a padd:: mimipavilion: Or the right tech. ::looks at Tarisa:: Do you remember if they used anything that helped move us between here and the Voad. Chirakis: Garand> +com+ They said they needed a science project before next week. They thought a bomb would be good. ::screams are farther away::: Nijil tr'Korjata: This :: gestures all around him :: is a big place. Johnson Kenyon: Out of spec, huh? I hadn't thought about that... but they should know how to operate it better than anyone? Tae'Lynn Dran: I don't remember sensing anything during the transport except a rather unpleasant disorientation. Tarisa: I imagine it was the ship itself that did all the work. Tae'Lynn Dran: I took that as part of the transport and not anything actually telepathic. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: +Garand+ I started to look up that Rihan girl's name, but remembered she was off the station. Johnson Kenyon: I had read up about this station, but it seems I had read about a past version of this station... I will need to redo my research Chirakis: :::shakes her head as she goes for coffee ,extra potent::: mimipavilion: Hmmm... maybe we should ask Chirakis about anything may have saw, since she was with us as well. Chirakis: ::wishing that ale was allowed in CnC::: Tarisa: ::Just as to double check, she concentrates on the CnC.:: Theo: Perhaps we should all concentrate together? Jylliene: ::Is glad chaos isn't solely the realm of Annisha & Co.:: Alexis McFarland: @ ::Drinking some water:: Annisha: @ Man, this is hard. I think father is cheating, cause he can't be smarter than me, mimipavilion: ::doesn't see Tarisa leave:: Well... Tarisa: @ Miana> ::Sneezes again. This time her tail poofs in the process.:: Alexis McFarland: @Maybe he plays it while you're sleeping and levelled up more Nijil tr'Korjata: The station did not remain at factory spec for very long. Alexis McFarland: @ ::snuggles Miana:: I hope you're not getting sick or anything. Fletcher Jackson: :::workworkwork::: Chirakis: ::takes the command station::: Tarisa: Perhaps it does take telepathic thoughts. :;Shrugs and begins to remove the suit.:: Theo: ::sits down to access the computer, types:: Johnson Kenyon: ::to Nijil:: to factory spec? This is a whole different station from the one I read about... I guess it makes sense that I could have screwed up this badly... I haven't even been here a week. Tarisa: @ Miana> Or maybe someone really is talking about me... Annisha: @ Probably helianthus or oenothera. Alexis McFarland: @Hm. Maybe. Chirakis: Garand> +com+ Captain, parents are asking for custody. Chirakis: ::ponders for a moment::: mimipavilion: ::Tarisa:: Well, I didn't lose a fellow Dept. Chief. Chirakis: +com+ The answer is no, Lieutenant. Tarisa: ::Nods with a smile, glad her tail can breathe again.:: Tarisa: ::Places the suit back on the table.:: Chirakis: Garand> +com+ They are threatening to bring charges. Nijil tr'Korjata: I came here as a refugee from the GRB at ch'RIhan, and look at me now...disheveled and prone to fits of panic at the prospect that I have to keep thousands of people safe on the station. No pressure. mimipavilion: ::smile:: We should take a break and come back to the suit with fresh eyes. Chirakis: ::this is not happening.. this is not happening:::: +com+ Then they will either leave or be put in a cell. Their choice. Tarisa: ::Nods in agreement.:: Chirakis: Garand> +com+ Yes, ma'am. Theo: ::sits back and stretches:: Johnson Kenyon: ::looks at Nijil:: You look like one of the most relaxed Chief Engineers I've ever met... I wouldn't have known you felt pressure.... Maybe I just cannot read the facial cues from Romulans Nijil tr'Korjata: I think the most important place here is the park, when au get down to it. Tae'Lynn Dran: :::jotting down some thoughts:: Nijil tr'Korjata: To say Romulans keep things bottled up is an understatement. mimipavilion: ::rubs her eyes:: Johnson Kenyon: I would have never known... Tae'Lynn Dran: I wonder if we could just ask the Dahlem for a users manual? Theo: ::Tarisa:: May I have a go at the suit? Jylliene: ::wonders how the parents got there so fast:: Tae'Lynn Dran: ::makes sure the airlocks are, well their locked:: Jylliene: ::word does indeed travel quickly:: Nijil tr'Korjata: There are generations upon generations of mistrust among us. The homeworld incident changed that for many of us out of necessity. Johnson Kenyon: I didn't realize how much you'd been impacted Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Finally, a chair... Nijil tr'Korjata: I have nightmares, Mr. Kenyon mimipavilion: ::yawns:: Annisha: @ Well, I've made my choices.

Chirakis: Captain, shall we move on, or would our scientists like to work on the cloaks more? Kallah Ramson: i think move on. we can keep testing the suit in logs or later on. Chirakis: Agreed. TBS will be 3 hours. Chirakis: That will give me time to read the riot act to the children and their families. Chirakis: And Commander Cayne will polish his tactical skills. Chirakis: Before we finish up, I would like to thank all of you who are or have been veterans. Today we remember Pearl Harbor. Those of you in Canada, you were already in the fray before the U.S. came in. Thank you all. Chirakis: Crew dismissed. Be well. Be Safe. Don’t forget your towel.

Which is true, from their point of view … but this is a station, not a ship. ::adjusts a few more things:: Tarisa: ::Nods.:: Theo: ::Dran, Pavilion:: Cosmic rays are high energy proton particles. Johnson Kenyon: (sort of depends on that... Cosmic rays are ionizing radiation coming from the cosmos... mostly gamma rays I would think) Chirakis: (It was not specified by the Dahlem, so they could be any kind of rays.) Tae'Lynn Dran: Cosmic rays, one of the first dangers most space faring species have to deal with. The new species we just met seems to be highly advanced yet really worried about them. Jylliene: ::sends a brief query about one order. The florist. It's always the florist.:: mimipavilion: ::nods:: And we just ran a battery of tests trying to figure out why and how it works. Scott Coleridge: They're certainly ambitious with their suggestions. I think a few of these changes are beyond the scope of what we want to do, at least without a more thorough upgrade of the support systems. Nijil tr'Korjata: +Kenyon+ Start with the largest sources of power no central to the station, the fusion reactors. Chirakis: ::moves back to her console while listening to the conversation at science::: Jylliene: ::Hopes for an answer that makes sense without needing to send anyone for in-person questions:: Scott Coleridge: But these tweaks should mitigate any power drains. Theo: ::Pavilion:: I definitely should brush up on my subspace mechanics. What a conundrum Doctor. Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+ Don't the fusion reactors provide power? Wouldn't there be a drop in power output than an increase in power usage? mimipavilion: ::nods:: Tarisa: These upgrades seem more plausible now. Tae'Lynn Dran: I think I'm going with the theory they use the created subspace as a beacon for the subject during transport. Tae'Lynn Dran: Because really, I can't find a single use for what that thing is doing other than, oh just doing what it's doing. ::shrug:: Chirakis: ::stops paging through to read a message from SI-5::: mimipavilion: And all tests were pretty much inconclusive. Johnson Kenyon: ::heading to the TL, listening for Nijil to respond:: Annisha: @ :: Finished the potatoes :: Theo: ::Dran:: I see, have you tried to bombard the suit with a mini artificially generated cosmic ray? Alexis McFarland: @ ::finishes as well:: Yay Johnson Kenyon: ::to computer:: Main Engineering Tarisa: @ Miana> Yay Done! Scott Coleridge: Perhaps we need to consider upgrading our reactors while we're at it. Tae'Lynn Dran: Yes, with a wide range of exposure lengths. Chirakis: ::frowns as she reads::: Theo: Hmm... puzzling, and no activation/reaction? Alexis McFarland: @Hehehe. ::sits by Miana:: Tae'Lynn Dran: ::hands Theo a padd:: It's producing these subspace fields. Nijil tr'Korjata: +Kenyon+ Well, their output is increased to accommodate the power requirements the station is asking. Could be something out of specification. Johnson Kenyon: ::hearing no response from Nijil, decides he'd better run a power consumption algorithm to see what's using the most power compared to previous times:: Tarisa: That would help facilitate future upgrades. Theo: ::reads the padd with a surprised look:: Fletcher Jackson: ::blinks, then turns to Commander Kital:: Ma'am, got a minute? Jylliene: ::listens to the surrounding chatter while continuing her own mundane tasks:: Johnson Kenyon: ::listening to Nijil:: +Nijil+ I see, so you want me to check on the primary fusion reactor? Jylliene: Hm? Yes. ::goes over to Jackson:: Tae'Lynn Dran: We first assumed the suits were simple shielding or very poor fashion sense. Johnson Kenyon: ::rerouting the TL to the primary fusion reactor deck:: Scott Coleridge: ::Tarisa:: I'm intrigued by the upgrades. Hopefully they will help us better understand this strange conduit behaviour.... Nijil tr'Korjata: +Kenyon+ Right, start with the largest and go down. Theo: I'm not qualified to give an answer regarding subspace, I'm no Engineer. Scott Coleridge: Good work on integrating them, Commander. Tarisa: Thank you. Fletcher Jackson: I have this requisition for fifty bottles of hydroelectric acid from some place called the Foundry? Know anything about that? Scott Coleridge: Make sure you consult with engineering before you bring the rest of the upgrades online, though. If there are increased power demands, they need to know about it. The last thing we need is them tearing out their hair, wondering why the fusion reactors aren't up to spec suddenly. Fletcher Jackson: I mean, I've heard of hydrochloric acid, but not this one, and 50 bottles? Jylliene: ...no. I do not. Did they say what they needed that for? Tarisa: ::Nods.:: I will. Fletcher Jackson: Doesn't say, ma'am. Send it back and ask? Tell them that we need more info? Theo: ::Pavilion:: Perhaps there is someone aboard Aegis who could reverse engineer the material the suit is composed of? Jylliene: Exactly. Chirakis: ::sends a reply then blanks the screen::: Johnson Kenyon: ::exiting the TL:: Fletcher Jackson: Yes, ma'am. Tae'Lynn Dran: ::looks to the Doctor:: Chirakis: :::steps toward OPS::: Annisha: @ :: Annisha's aunt comes into get the potatoes :: Aunt: Oh, I see au have peeled things like this before. I'll take them to your gram. Chirakis: ::Jylliene:: The Foundry? Jylliene: ::nods to Chirakis:: Have to admit, I'm not familiar with it. Tarisa: If you excuse me, I will go check on our suit research. Alexis McFarland: @ Potato Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: The security list was long, but rather uneventful. Fletcher Jackson: ::turns, having already sent it::: Me either, Captain. Scott Coleridge: I was just about to ask for an update on that. Mind if I join you? Johnson Kenyon: ::entering the large Fusion reactor control room:: Chirakis: ::nod:: I'll send someone to find out who that is. mimipavilion: ::thinks:: I would want to say the engineering department. Jylliene: ::nods:: Thank you, ma'am. Tarisa: ::Nods, motioning to the TL.:: Please Theo: ::Dran:: so this technology, where did you find it? Chirakis: ::Jackson:: Send me a copy of the requisition. Tae'Lynn Dran: The Dahlem, a new species we made contact with. Fletcher Jackson: Yes, ma'am. Chirakis: :::moves to her console::: Tae'Lynn Dran: Completely alien technology. Scott Coleridge: ::follows Tarisa into the TL:: Scott Coleridge: ::Chirakis:: I'm going to look in on our suit examination. You have the CnC. Theo: Surely the suit has some kind of deflector considering cosmic rays have mass. Johnson Kenyon: ::running a diagnostic of power input and output:: Chirakis: I have CnC. ::nods:: Tae'Lynn Dran: That's what we thought but it's not reflecting anything of the rays we've exposed it to. Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+ I made it to the main fusion reactor control room on deck 41,sir. Chirakis: ::sends a message to security to check it out::: Tarisa: ::Takes the TL up. They soon arrive at sickbay.:: Alexis McFarland: @ ::plays with her PADD while dinner is cooking:: Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+ I want to check to see if you see the same things from your location Theo: Curious... ::with a curious look:: Jylliene: ::to Jackson:: That should be an interesting conversation. Tarisa: ::Walks into medlab with Scott.:: Jylliene: ::grins, heads back to main Ops:: Tae'Lynn Dran: Maybe the subspace field is a byproduct of how it eliminates the rays? Chirakis: ::Cayne:: Have you ever heard of the Foundry? Tae'Lynn Dran: We're just guessing though. Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+ The Fusion reactor is operating at higher than normal output, and the secondary reactor operating at minimal power Scott Coleridge: ::enters the medlab, notices two of their newer officers already hard at work:: Theo: ::thinks to himself, uh oh, the brass:: Fletcher Jackson: :::moves on to another requisition::: Tae'Lynn Dran: Whatever it's doing seems needlessly complicated. mimipavilion: ::looks rather drained:: Tarisa: How is the progress? Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+ there is an increase in power consumption from the Sensors, but that seems normal Theo: ::steps back, yes, a little ways back nervously:: Tae'Lynn Dran: Slow. Very slow. It's not giving up it's secrets easily. Tarisa: ::Looking at the suit.:: Really? mimipavilion: Inconclusive from a scientific standpoint, I believe, then again I'm a doctor not a physicist. Tae'Lynn Dran: Do these subspace readings mean anything to you? Tarisa: ::Looking at the findings so far.:: Scott Coleridge: ::perks up at the mention of subspace readings:: Scott Coleridge: ::leans over to take a look:: Chirakis: :::blanks her screen again and moves to the command station::: Tae'Lynn Dran: We're getting these as a result of cosmic ray bursts we've subjected it to. Tarisa: Have you tried putting the suit on? Theo: ::all:: Perhaps this suit is on a "pace" far faster than we can detect? ::looks at Coleridge:: Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+ I am noticing one of the labs is using more power.... a significant spike Nijil tr'Korjata: +Kenyon+ Sensors? Hmm... hope there is not a noise increase. Scott Coleridge: My understanding from the away team report was that the suits served a protective function. Scott Coleridge: But they were also somehow related to their transporter systems. mimipavilion: ::nods:: Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+ Is the Science Department running some experiments without notifying us of their power consumption needs? Tarisa: ::Nods:: The equipment and suits also responded to the user. Scott Coleridge: Some kind of telepathic link up? Nijil tr'Korjata: +Kenyon+ Well, they don't explicitly have to, but if there is a new default I need to tweak the settings accordingly Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+ well, the power consumption in those experiments is significant, but not enough to account for the 1 percent by itself Tae'Lynn Dran: I wouldn't recommend someone wearing one during testing. Theo: ::Tarisa:: What if we were to put a piece of the material under a simple microscope? Alexis McFarland: @::sniffs:: mm, smells yummy. Tae'Lynn Dran: But we haven't done a test of a subject simply wearing the suits. Tarisa: Not while exposing it to cosmic rays. But wear it while conducting scans. It might reveal something. mimipavilion: I agree with the ensign. I would hate to lose a crew member. Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+ I've got an idea... running a power consumption algorithm Scott Coleridge: A materials analysis would be useful. Then perhaps a fashion show. ::smirk:: Tarisa: ::Nods.:: Agreed mimipavilion: ::tempted to slug Scott in the arm:: Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: 11/30/18 Chirakis: Thank you. TBS is zero. Chirakis: Crew dismissed. Be well. Be Safe. Don’t forget your towel.
