  1. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 11 October 2019 25 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.146 TBS is 6 hours. The time is 1700 hours (5:00 pm) Aegis Local. Most major systems have been repaired. Minor glitches are still driving us crazy, The combined power draw causes the lights to flicker momentarily and creates a spike in the fusion generators. All replicators go offline. Engineering is now struggling to pinpoint and rectify the problem. Chirakis: =/\=BEGIN SIM=/\= Chirakis: =/\=BEGIN SIM=/\= Andrew Minard: ::standing at science station ii, tricorder at the ready:: mimipavilion: ::in medical:: Tae'Lynn Dran: ::where she has been, tied up in one experiment or another:: Dacia Sandero: ::n medical, wrapping up her work:: Chirakis: ::CnC, monitoring the glitches as they glitch.::: Alexis McFarland: ::in the park with Miana and Annisha, feeling better after a nice long nap curled up with her friends:: Jylliene: ::Ops, displeased at the glitches and trying to generally keep tabs on things:: Chirakis: ;;without looking up:: Commander Kital, call for reports in all sections. Jylliene: Yes ma'am. Andrew Minard: +Tarisa, Dran+ I'd like to take a look at the bulk storage containers in the cargo bays. I think there could be a problem. Alexis McFarland: ::awake by now and feeling hungry:: You guys hungry? Wanna head down to the food court to grab something to eat? Jylliene: +Eng, medical, security, science, tactical+ Status reports, all sections. mimipavilion: +jylliene+ Medical is a go. Chirakis: ::small sigh of relief knowing that medical is not a problem::: Jylliene: ::echoing that:: Alexis McFarland: ::snuggles Miana:: Dacia says the replicators are still offline, but there are some places that cook their food and are unaffected. Tarisa: :;Had stepped into the lab.:: +Minard+ Oh? What sort of problem? Tae'Lynn Dran: ::hits the auto reply which sends out enough data to show she's still alive:: Andrew Minard: +Tarisa+ Well, if the replicators are malfunctioning perhaps we might check on the raw mater suspensions as a possible source? Johnson Kenyon: ::reviewing the work order list:: Jylliene: +Med+ Copy that, doctor. Thank you. Tarisa: +Jylliene+ Sciences report ready. Jylliene: +Tarisa+ Copy, Science ready. Thank you. Dacia Sandero: ::taking stock of their supplies in case the replicators are offline for awhile:: Chirakis: ::turns at the sound of the lift::: Tarisa: +Minard+ I see. Proceed, but coordinate with a member of engineering. Andrew Minard: +Tarisa+ Engineering aye. Andrew Minard: ::waits for the lift to open:: Johnson Kenyon: ::yawns:: ::thinking,this is getting old:: Chirakis: ::steps in front of the entering yeoman:: Is that a new type of.... doughnut: Johnson Kenyon: +Jyliene+ Engineering is trying to keep up with the repairs, Ma'am... sorry for the late report Andrew Minard: +TL+ Deck 70 ::descends:: Jylliene: +Kenyon+ Do you have the power and supplies needed so far? Chirakis: Yeoman> No,ma'am. These are called fritters. Apple fritters. And this here is cheese danish. Jylliene: ((oo. Apple fritters.)) Johnson Kenyon: +Jyliene+ Yes, Ma'am. We're just running ragged Johnson Kenyon: +Jyliene+ It's more tendius at this point Chirakis: :::slow nod::: And this change is because....? Jylliene: +Kenyon+ Copy that. Thank you. Keep up the good work. Tarisa: ::Enters the lab to check on Dran.:: Andrew Minard: ::steps out of the turbolift and heads down the corridor toward Main Engineering:: Johnson Kenyon: ::engineering is resetting the replicators one at a time:: Tarisa: Miana> ::Wide awake now, thanks to the nap.:: Jylliene: Engineering reports progress; slow, but progress nonetheless. Chirakis: Yeoman> The only thing the replicator will replicate. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Working for many hours straight was taking its toll :: Alexis McFarland: You hungry Miana? We should get something to eat? Chirakis: ::Jylliene::: Thank you, Commander. Yeoman, carry on. Annisha: :: Messaging several places, some were having issues with their replication system :: Chirakis: ::she watches the yeoman set them next to the coffee, which is actually coffee this time:::: Andrew Minard: ::reads a side panel, it's the engineering duty schedule:: Jylliene: Still awaiting security report. Tarisa: Miana> ::Nods.:: Mmhmm Andrew Minard: Let's see ::to himself:: who's on duty... Johnson Kenyon: ::sees Andrew Minard:: Sorry... I've got everyone I can spare working Chirakis: ::looks to Cdr Cayne::: Commander, poke Lt Garand for a report, please. Annisha: Great, the bugs the Ferengi eat are not affected.. Johnson Kenyon: A skeleton crew is sleeping for the next shift Alexis McFarland: I know there's some restaurants that cook their food, so they shouldn't be affected. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Aye +Garand+ Requesting an update on any security issues. Andrew Minard: ::Kenyon:: Oh well my Chief wanted me to let you know I'm going to make an inspection of the raw bulk storage in the cargo bays. I just don't know where to begin. Johnson Kenyon: True, but many of those have ingredients that they replicate Annisha: Yeah, but they replicate their ingredients. Johnson Kenyon: Raw bulk storage? You need someone to take you there? Alexis McFarland: Mmm. I hope there's some left then. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Going over the subroutines and database of the replicator.. wondering if a pointer is pointing to the wrong thing, or the same thing...coffee :: Andrew Minard: I'd like to know where the most vulnerable areas are. Alexis McFarland: But that was a nice nap. I feel a lot better now. Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+ I have 3 replicators ready to be reinitialized Johnson Kenyon: ::Minard:: vulnerable in what way? Nijil tr'Korjata: +Kenyon+ Let me know the results. I am still looking over the headers Chirakis: ::wanders slowly toward Jylliene, muttering::: One would hope that Starfleet would send their 30 new engineers more quickly. Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+ Ah, sir. I'll have the technicians try them one at a time Andrew Minard: ::taps on a side panel:: Here are the organic stasis chambers. Could they be vulnerable to spoilage? And in turn may that have an effect on the replicators? Chirakis: ::Jylliene::: Have they responded lately? Jylliene: Unless we end up overwhelmed with engineers trying to engineer things that don't need engineered just to keep themselves busy. Chirakis: Good point. Nijil tr'Korjata: +CnC+ :: An exasperated Nijil speaks over the comm :: I recommend taking the transporters offline. I think there is a link with replication and rematerialization. I don't want to transport to another place as a coffee mug Jylliene: Engineers need projects. Johnson Kenyon: ::;looks at Minard:: Organic stasis chambers are not on the same system as the replicators, or are you concerned about their power? Jylliene: ::ponders that:: He wouldn't steal the blankets if he's on a counter, admittedly. Johnson Kenyon: (Hey... I resemble that!!) Jylliene: +Nijil+ How long will they be down? Andrew Minard: ::Kenyon:: The raw food stock used by the replicators to make food, sir. Chirakis: ::thinks for only a moment::: Very well, Commander Korjata. Make it so. Just be sure there are none in the transporter when you shut it down. Alexis McFarland: ::heads down to the food court with her friends:: Nijil tr'Korjata: +Jy+ I have a team bringing a test canister to the main transporter room. Jylliene: +Nijil+ As per the captain, go ahead. Keep us posted. Johnson Kenyon: ::Minard:: Maybe I don't understand how replicators work, but I actually believe it is a matter-energy conversion with a coded buffer pattern... Nijil tr'Korjata: +Chirakis+ If only my nightmares would fit into the transporter buffer. Jylliene: As per the group of engineers, I've not heard any more recent updates. Chirakis: +USS Calgary+ stand by for transport shutdown. Johnson Kenyon: ::approving requests to reinitialize the replicators:: Nijil tr'Korjata: +CnC+ The transporter team is in place. Andrew Minard: So how can I help you restore the replicators to functional capacity? Alexis McFarland: ::looks around to see what's open:: Johnson Kenyon: ::Minard:: We Chirakis: ;;nods to Jylliene::: Proceed with caution. Annisha: :: Tries her replicator :: Oh oh, I'm getting a drink. :: Takes the cup and looks inside :: What is this? :: sips :: oh bitter bitter Jylliene: +Nijil+ Go ahead with all caution. Johnson Kenyon: ::Minard:: we're acting under the assumption that a power surge has caused the malfunction. We are taking them off-line to see if they work. Alexis McFarland: ::frowns:: Is it supposed to be bitter? Chirakis: Action> Not many stores or eating places are open and those that are have strange food. Johnson Kenyon: ::Minard:: There are 2 in Main Engineering over there ::points:: if you want to take a look Andrew Minard: ::Kenyon:: Yes, I saw the lights flickering earlier. Nijil tr'Korjata: +CnC+Transporter Team+ Go ahead with test 1... Andrew Minard: OK will do sir. ::opens his tricorder and reconfigures to biological settings:: Johnson Kenyon: ::Minard:: So... the assumption is that the power surge has somehow been captured in the relays, causing them to stay online or otherwise not reset Nijil tr'Korjata: :: The test canister transports to his location, somewhere on the station :: Hmmm Andrew Minard: ::Kenyon:: alright ::still examining the replicator carefully:: why would a power surge produce duplicate replication? Tarisa: ::Looking over the Life Science labs.:: Tarisa: Miana> ::Frowns as she gets hungry.:: Alexis McFarland: Aww. There's not much here and none of these look appetizing Johnson Kenyon: ::Minard:: My guess is the buffer failed to reset and the pattern repeated itself Andrew Minard: Maybe it's a computer problem? mimipavilion: ::wanders from her office to main medical to look around:: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Finds the bio-canister filled with...coffee :: Dacia Sandero: ::eating a granola bar:: Andrew Minard: Could there be a virus in the pattern transmission or storage system? Johnson Kenyon: ::Minard:: What's your background? ::tapping on a console:: I'm happy to guide you, but it's real busy right now Nijil tr'Korjata: +CnC+ First test failed. Seems the buffer was reconfigured to dematerialize as coffee. Glad I didn't have anywhere to go. Andrew Minard: ::Kenyon:: Astrophysics sir. Johnson Kenyon: ::gets the word that the reinitialization failed to fix the problem:: Jylliene: ::reviews supplies listings:: Nijil tr'Korjata: +Jy+ Nijil here. Send a message to my parents asking if there is any foodstuffs they can deliver to us. Jylliene: ::looks over the list of stored emergency rations:: Johnson Kenyon: ::Minard:: Physics and engineering are not that different... and, yes, if you are good with computers, you could see if there is a problem with a computer virus Chirakis: ::Jylliene::: Inform the crew that emergency food is not to be used unless verified by Dr Pavilion. Have Lt Garand place guards around the emergency food. Tae'Lynn Dran: ::finishing compilation of one experiments results and already into another one, sorting seedling:: Johnson Kenyon: ::tapping the console, shakes head:: The first tests failed to fix the problem Jylliene: Yes ma'am. Nijil tr'Korjata: +Kenyon+Minard+ I think we need to wipe every replicator on the station, reset to the base program, then start them up again. But we have to wipe them all before we reset or this issue will spread to them all. Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+ I just got the message that the reinitialization failed.... I'm going to isolate one of the replicators to see if that will help Andrew Minard: ::Kenyon:: We could pull the materialization chips and set one up in the computer lab. Jylliene: ::Sends the message on to Garand for guards for the food:: Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+ Roger that. I'll send word to the staff to get that going Alexis McFarland: Hmm... Jylliene: ::then full crew message re. hands off the emergency food unless okayed by Doctor Pavilion:: Nijil tr'Korjata: +CnC+ Ration bars anyone? I am suggesting we wipe each and every replicator, then once they are all wiped install the base replication program.. Johnson Kenyon: ::Minard:: I've got my orders, but you're free to take one of the replicators and do that Alexis McFarland: I wonder what we're gonna eat? I think we have some leftover food in my quarters. Andrew Minard: If it is a virus, I think the science department can isolate it, and investigate. Dacia Sandero: ::glad she took a lot of stuff from the Aegis anniversary party:: Andrew Minard: +Nijil+ Yes Commander. absolutely Annisha: ::: Thinks of Miana :: Nah... Jylliene: ::prepares for the possible influx of food orders from restaurants after this:: Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+, ::Minard::The problem is how do we do wipe all of them simultaneous and reset the base program at once? Alexis McFarland: Hmm? Tarisa: Miana> ::Sneezes:: Chirakis: (Share, Dacia) Tae'Lynn Dran: ::places the last seedling into the incubator:: Alexis McFarland: Bless you.. mimipavilion: ::goes back to her office and sees a 'new message'::to self:: Oh yay. I'm in charge of food rationing. Dacia Sandero: (lol, sure) Andrew Minard: ::pulls out the materialization chips and downloads the programs into my tricorder just before they are wiped:: Tarisa: ::Walks over to Dran's side, watching her work.:: Nijil tr'Korjata: +CnC+ It will take some hours to reach each and every replicator. If we miss one this will not work. Chirakis: 10:45 PM Jylliene: ::sends the message out to Nijil's parents:: Tae'Lynn Dran: ::turns:: AH! ::totally unaware of her surroundings:: I didn't see you. Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+ so we're going to do it by hand? I estimate 72 hours Andrew Minard: +Nijil+::Kenyon:: Pull out all the chips, set the replicators to wipe? Nijil tr'Korjata: +Jy+ Oh, and the wine... the one with my picture on it.. get some of that. Tarisa: ::Flinches a little, then smiles.:: Sorry. New project? Jylliene: ::blinks:: ...with his picture on it? Nijil tr'Korjata: +Kenyon+ Without killing our staff, that's about right Andrew Minard: Replace each isolinear chip manually and use a power converted to wipe each replicator? Johnson Kenyon: ::Minard:: No, pull up one of the engineering manuals on the replicators.. there's a protocol for doing ti Jylliene: ::sends the requested message:: Chirakis: ::hearing Nijil, she shakes her head at Jylliene::: Andrew Minard: ::taps the screen and starts to read:: Jylliene: ::cancels the requested message:: Tae'Lynn Dran: Yes. Testing seedlings in some soil samples taken from around the sector. Chirakis: ::steps toward her, saying quietly:: If we are to have a rationing program, it must be for everyone. Otherwise, it might result in chaos. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Thinks of Nijil's Best, each bottle lovingly dropped on a soft surface before being placed in a very bio-bed looking case :: Tarisa: To see which is the most viable for planting? Jylliene: ::nods:: Chirakis: I doubt that the Korjatas have enough to furnish the entire station. Johnson Kenyon: ::Minard:: Actually, we're going to need your help on this one.... You see you need to have a isolinear spanner to reset it the memory and there is a series of codes you do to restore to the base program Jylliene: I will need to see one of those bottles eventually, though. Chirakis: ::nod:: Indeed you will. Chirakis: At the moment, however, it may create chaos. Jylliene: Just out of curiosity. Is it an infant picture, or some current image? I'm not sure which would be more unusual. Andrew Minard: ::Kenyon:: I can get some spanners and pull a few science technicians to help. Jylliene: ::nods:: Of course. Johnson Kenyon: ::moves next to Minard:: Make sure you take a PADD to guide you. It will also help if you have any problems along the way. Andrew Minard: Very good. Thanks. Johnson Kenyon: ::Minard:: That's a good idea. However, we'd need them all to come here and teach them Nijil tr'Korjata: +Kenyon+ There are tools to reset the replicator. Jylliene: +Nijil+No on the request to the family. Unless they have enough stores to feed the entire station. Andrew Minard: +Jylliene+ Commander, please where are the isolinear spanners located? Tae'Lynn Dran: Partially. The seeds also are engineered to grown in certain ways according to soil characteristics. An honest way to tell a fuller story of the soils history and makeup. Johnson Kenyon: ::Minard:: This is engineering, we have stocks of tools Andrew Minard: +Tarisa+ I need to coordinate a few technicians from our department to help with the wiping of the replicators Ma'am. Jylliene: +Minard+ Supply locker B. ::sends map:: mimipavilion: Loxil>::checking the food status of the Jeth Dabi family and making the next week’s grocery list:: Nijil tr'Korjata: +Jy+ Na as my folks can't or did the Captain overrule? Johnson Kenyon: ::walks over to the tool lockers and pulls out a set of tools, puts it in a bag and gives it to Minard:: Jylliene: +Nijil+ Overruled. Tarisa: Ah. Very interesting. Nijil tr'Korjata: +Kenyon+ Just replicate the too... nevermind. Scratch that. Cargo bay seven should have a supply. Andrew Minard: ::takes the bag dropping it to the floor:: Wow this is heavy! Tarisa: ::Pauses:: +Minard+ Wiping? Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+ A lot of tools are out, but there are plenty left by now. Tae'Lynn Dran: ::hearing the comm:: Wiping the replicators? Nijil tr'Korjata: +Jy+ Ah, the no food vs some food. They will probably get something and head here... mystery vegetables Jylliene: ::starts making a supply request list to restock based on anticipated usage.:: Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+ Mr. Minard suggests we deputize some of the Science staff to serve as engineering support Andrew Minard: +Tarisa+ Commander Nijil and Lt. Kenyon have volunteered me and a few technicians, if possible to wipe the operating systems of all replicators and reinitialize their base programs. Chirakis: ::moves away:: +Chirakis to Calgary+ Any progress? Johnson Kenyon: +Nijil+ We could group them with the engineering staff and give them some training to do this. Tarisa: This is becoming quite the task... ::Frowns.:: Johnson Kenyon: ::taps console:: Computer, how many food replicators do we have on the station? Chirakis: ::nods as she listens to Calgary's engineering report;:: Chirakis: 10:55 PM Andrew Minard: +Tarisa+ I also downloaded the infected program for further analysis ma'am. Annisha: :: Gets a message from her father :: Look at this: Fancy adventure aboard the station? Ever wish au could be an engineer? Help your father wipe replicator memories an earn engineering credits... Andrew Minard: +Tarisa+ I think our computer lab could investigate the cause of the problem. Alexis McFarland: ::looks at Annisha's PADD:: What's an engineering credit? Tarisa: +Minard+ I will get with Computer Sciences to assist. Annisha: I have no idea, but it sounds lame. Alexis McFarland: kekeke.. Andrew Minard: +Tarisa+ Thanks Commander. ::picks up the heavy bag and a few PADDS in order to distribute them with instructions:: Tae'Lynn Dran: Never trusted replicators. Chirakis: :::checks the chrono::: Johnson Kenyon: ::Minard:: Over here for a moment Chirakis: ;;wondering if they will last through the night::: Andrew Minard: ::puts the bag's handle in his teeth:: Aye sir. ::steps over:: Johnson Kenyon: ::Mindard:: Why don't we get you science types grouped with an engineer to teach you on the job Chirakis: 10:58 PM Tarisa: ::Nods.:: Unfortunately without them, we can not sustain food supplies for the station. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Goes to wipe one replicator :: Replicator: I see au want to wipe all replicator memory. This cannot be undone? Continue? Yes/No Andrew Minard: ::Kenyon:: I can only vouch for 2 technicians and myself, Tarisa can approve more if necessary. Johnson Kenyon: ::Minard:: I'm fine with that, but have them report here and I'll route them to some good trainers Chirakis: ::turns to Cayne:: Having had this semi-catastrophe, we must be prepared for the worst case scenario. Chirakis: (last words) Cdr Wyatt Cayne: Security are being positioned across the station at the appropriate locations. Tae'Lynn Dran: Well, I do have fast growing seeds in storage. Instant garden just for such emergencies. Chirakis: Excellent. Nijil tr'Korjata: One down, thousands to go...

Cdr Wyatt Cayne: No comments Chirakis: Okay. Comments or questions from the crew? Johnson Kenyon: bad replication event, commander Jylliene: ? Chirakis: Jylliene Jylliene: How many of the replicators can we assume have been done by sim start? Jylliene: During the tbs Chirakis: How ever many are decided. Chirakis: it's difficult to put a number on something like that Johnson Kenyon: 20% Chirakis: sounds good Nijil tr'Korjata: Time could be variable if an army of people wiped them for us. Chirakis: Indeed. Chirakis: We can discuss this after dismissal. If you would like to stay and talk, please do. Chirakis: Otherwise... Chirakis: Crew dismissed. Be well. Be Safe. Don’t forget your towel.
  2. =/\= Aegis Mission Brief 10/4/19 - 10:04 PM=/\= 25 May 2388 - Stardate 2388.146 TBS is 10 hours. The time is 1000 hours (10:00 am) Aegis Local. Engineering is still in the process of fixing system malfunctions. Red alert klaxons have been silenced, doors will now open, lifts are working, communications have been restored, and tactical scanning systems are fully functional. USS Calgary is in close orbit. Its task force is farther out, keeping a close watch on the area. Mr. Kenyon will be rejoining us in engineering.

Scott Coleridge: Ops> ::receives a malfunction report from sickbay about the replicator, forwards it to the engineering repair task queue:: Johnson Kenyon: +Korjata+ I can only think of a few things that would cause this. Some sort of power fluctuation or a computer virus Tarisa: Miana> ::plops down under the tree.:: Johnson Kenyon: +Korjata+ I'm directing the staff to try resetting things by disconnecting the power system by system.... it will take longer, but hopefully we'll know Tarisa: ::Nods.:: Interesting. Alexis McFarland: ::Curls up next to Miana, yawns:: Andrew Minard: ::stands up:: Commanders anyone for coffee? Nijil tr'Korjata: +Kenyon+ The system is sweeping for rogue programs. Tarisa: :;Shakes head.:: I do not drink coffee. Scott Coleridge: Normally I would go for tea... Dacia Sandero: I'm sure the nurses and doctors will appreciate the malfunction. Dacia Sandero: ::Watches a few walk past to get some free coffee:: Andrew Minard: ::Coleridge, Tarisa:: Tea service coming right up. ::high tails it to the side lounge:: Scott Coleridge: ACTION> All the replicators on the station simultaneously replicate Dacia's cup of coffee. The combined power draw causes the lights to flicker momentarily and a spike in the fusion generators. Johnson Kenyon: ::noticing the flickering lights and the cups of coffee appear at the replicators in Engineering:: Tarisa: ::Perks up as lights flicker.:: Johnson Kenyon: What the? Scott Coleridge: ::looks around:: Hmm. Alexis McFarland: ::looks at the flickering lights:: What was that? mimipavilion: ::looks at the lights:: Seriously? Johnson Kenyon: +Korjata+ Do you suspect this might be caused by our gremlin friends? Scott Coleridge: Ops> Sir, getting reports of power fluctuations … sudden momentary draw from the... replicator systems? Andrew Minard: ::walks into the lounge seeing a cup of coffee being replicated at a side alcove, looks puzzled, notices the lights flicker:: Hmm Dacia Sandero: Oh wow. There's coffee in every replicator. Johnson Kenyon: ::moving to the food replicators and disconnecting the power:: Nijil tr'Korjata: +Kenyon+ I am getting replicator malfunctions, meaning some of the more non-essential systems are being affected. Alexis McFarland: But I don't want a coffee. ::looks at the replicator in the park nearest them:: Johnson Kenyon: +Korjata+ which is where you would put a Trojan virus? Scott Coleridge: +Engineering+ Coleridge to engineering. Tarisa: Miana> Ew Andrew Minard: ::recycles the coffee and begins to replicate 3 hot teas:: Scott Coleridge: ACTION> Minard's replicator is, like all replicators, now offline. Johnson Kenyon: +Coleridge+ This is Main Engineering, go ahead Nijil tr'Korjata: +Kenyon+ One does not want to walk a great distance only to find out they were going the wrong way. Scott Coleridge: +Kenyon+ Lieutenant, we just had the lights flicker up here and a power spike in the replicator systems. Report. Andrew Minard: Oh my +Tarisa+ the Lounge replicator is malfunctioning ma'am Tarisa: +Andrew+ Seems they all are. Annisha: :: The display on the teacher's board started to malfunction :: Andrew Minard: ::returns to the CnC:: Johnson Kenyon: +Coleridge+ yes, sir. I'm getting the same report throughout the station. We're not sure if there is a virus or some sort of power malfunction. We are attempting to isolate and diagnose now Alexis McFarland: ::clutches Miana:: I hope this isn't a bad feeling or anything. ::at the park:: Andrew Minard: Sorry about the tea sirs. Scott Coleridge: +Kenyon+ I see. ::massages his forehead:: Keep me apprised. Coleridge out. Tarisa: Miana> ::Curls up, putting her head on Alexis' shoulder:: Things are breaking. Scott Coleridge: ::thinking that maybe those 30 extra engineers they have coming isn't such a bad idea at the moment:: Nijil tr'Korjata: +Joining the call between Coleridge and Kenyon+ Korjata here. I think we need to power the station down. Scott Coleridge: +Nijil+ The whole station? For how long? Alexis McFarland: Yeah, it's not good. But I'm sure Annisha's dad is on it. Andrew Minard: ::takes his position at science station two, brings the internal sensors to active:: Alexis McFarland: ::glances at Annisha::.. who I really don't envy right now Annisha: Oh....yeah... Nijil tr'Korjata: +Coleridge+Kenyon+ Depends on what's wrong, but a few hours at the most. Johnson Kenyon: +Korjata and Coleridge+ ::listening and thinking, we'd be vulnerable to attack:: Nijil tr'Korjata: +Coleridge+Kenyon+ Unless au with to have the number of issues increase. Scott Coleridge: +Nijil+ A few hours? That's not feasible. Not to mention the panic it would create right after the unexpected lockdown. Andrew Minard: ::scans the station with internal sensors from the bottom deck up:: Nijil tr'Korjata: +Coleridge+Kenyon+ Then we will have to tackle the problems one at a time. Scott Coleridge: +Nijil+ What if we evacuated and powered down individual sections of the station on a rolling basis over a few days? Would that achieve your goal? Johnson Kenyon: +Korjata+Coleridge+ Perhaps we could reroute power to another system isolated from the main Andrew Minard: ::Tarisa:: Ma'am, are we hosting any unusual life forms, or have we recently? Tarisa: :;Frowns at the idea of everything being shut down.:: Johnson Kenyon: +Korjata+Coleridge+ I'm skeptical on that approach, sir. Nijil tr'Korjata: +Coleridge+Kenyon+ Sections are not the issues. I'll have to turn off, say, all replication systems and reset them, then other systems Scott Coleridge: +Korjata+Kenyon+ Speaking of which, we'll need to get the replicators back as soon as possible or else we're going to have a very hungry station soon. Tarisa: ::Thinks.:: We did have a group of...I believe security calls them gremlins that were in the lower decks. But they have been relocated. Johnson Kenyon: +Korjata+ Coleridge+ Which is why we might be able to isolate specific systems on a temporary power source and see if that fixes the problem Andrew Minard: Ah, we're they completely corporeal or something almost totally biological? Nijil tr'Korjata: +Coleridge+Kenyon+ Bottom line, as humans are fond of saying, is we don't exactly know what is affecting the systems. We would have to take a system across the station offline and start a diagnosis. Perhaps repair the issue, perhaps do a reset. Scott Coleridge: +Korjata+Kenyon+ I agree that this issue appears to be bigger than a single glitch and needs a more holistic approach. If disabling specific systems is the way to go, we can make that work. Tarisa: ::Curious look.:: Biological. Have you discovered something? mimipavilion: ::looks over reports:: Andrew Minard: No ma'am, however, gremlins tend to have certain "unknown" qualities at times. Alexis McFarland: ::leans on Annisha and still holds Miana as she begins to drift off to sleep:: Johnson Kenyon: +Korjata+Coleridge+ I can start setting up some temporary power and computer relays for certain systems. Even set them to auxiliary power supplies and see if we get localized repair Scott Coleridge: +Korjata+Kenyon+ Very well, but we can't do this haphazardly. Come up with a detailed plan of how you want to approach this--which systems, which order, time estimates, so you can present it to me. I'll need to know what we're getting ourselves into and brief the department heads before I sign off on anything. Annisha: Who thought a glitchy board would be so fun. Andrew Minard: At least when you look at the exobiological record. Tarisa: Miana> ::purrs as she falls asleep.:: Alexis McFarland: glitchy... Alexis McFarland: ::zzz:: Johnson Kenyon: ::tired of talking over people, decides to listen and await orders:: Nijil tr'Korjata: +Coleridge+Kenyon+ Will take a few hours to draw up a plan and simulate it. Dacia Sandero: The replicators don't work? They must've took them offline to fix them. Johnson Kenyon: +Korjata+Coleridge+ Not if I do one replicator first to see if she works Scott Coleridge: +Korjata+Kenyon+ Understood. See if you can patch the replicator subsystem temporarily. I'm already knee-deep in complaints as it is. Andrew Minard: ::Tarisa:: Perhaps we should examine one or more of them more closely and include the entire EM Spectrum, no? Annisha: :: Turns to them :: Au guys not get enough sleep? Alexis McFarland: ::mumbles:: No...the red alert alarms were too loud. Johnson Kenyon: +Korjata+Coleridge+ We'll keep you advised. Scott Coleridge: +Korjata+Kenyon+ Lt. Kenyon, if your examination of the replicators yields anything that could speed up the repairs that would help immensely. Just remember: the larger the scope of your solution, the more I need to know before I can approve it. Nijil tr'Korjata: +Kenyon+ I think we may need a long lunch for this. Tarisa: ::Shakes head.:: I will not be approaching one of them... You will need to contact Dr. Pavilion if you wish to examine them. Scott Coleridge: ((5 minute warning)) Dacia Sandero: :;treats some people with minor earaches from the klaxons:: Dacia Sandero: ::notably some Ferengi dudes:: Johnson Kenyon: +Korjata+Coleridge+ Will let you know of the status as we go Tarisa: Miana> :;Mumbling, with her eyes closed.:: loud... Andrew Minard: ::Tarisa:: Forgive my ignorance of the previous situation, do you think they could be the cause of these malfunctions? Tarisa: I do not believe so. They had other instructions. Tarisa: But it is possible. Andrew Minard: ::Cmdr. Taris:: Perhaps I should check on the bulk biological matter storage tanks. Johnson Kenyon: +Korjata+Coleridge+ Chief, I think I misunderstood you earlier. You want a plan in-place and approved first? Tarisa: ::Nods.:: Johnson Kenyon: ::sort of assumes we'll have a replicator from which to make lunch:: Scott Coleridge: ((Last words)) Johnson Kenyon: ::getting some engineering crew in Main engineering to set up a one replicator isolation and trial:: Andrew Minard: ::Tarisa:: If it's the replicators, then it could begin at the start. ::gets his tricorder ready:: Scott Coleridge: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Scott Coleridge: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Scott Coleridge: 10/4/19 Andrew Minard: ::paused:: Scott Coleridge: I, for one, am just thankful it was Dacia's coffee the replicators chose to get stuck on and not something more... unusual. Scott Coleridge: Well done, everyone. Andrew Minard: thank you sir Johnson Kenyon: ::wink:: Dacia Sandero: lol Scott Coleridge: We'll go with a TBS of 6 hours, bringing us to 1700 hours. Hopefully engineering will have a tentative plan in place. Scott Coleridge: I'm sure between now and then everyone will have a lot to mull over with these strange malfunctions affecting their workday. Johnson Kenyon: I agree Alexis McFarland: yess Scott Coleridge: Captain Chirakis is lurking on her phone... please feel free to chime in! While waiting for that, any other questions from the crew? Dacia Sandero: Nope Andrew Minard: I'm sure it will be an unusual dinner LOL Scott Coleridge: All right, that's all from me. Everyone dismissed! Have a good week. Chirakis: ::lurk:: Dacia Sandero: Goodnight! Andrew Minard: "all I can get out of this replicator is Petrokian sausage!" Johnson Kenyon: it's a lurker! Andrew Minard: ::drinks the sausage juice:: Chirakis: Thank you Commander College for stepping up to the plate. Or the ice. Alexis McFarland: Daddy would you like some sausage? Johnson Kenyon: you know I don't like Sausage! Andrew Minard: ice captain? Alexis McFarland: NHL season just started Wednesday? Chirakis: After all, he is a Canadian. Andrew Minard: doh Johnson Kenyon: I'll see ya'll next week Tarisa: night night Scott Coleridge: I'm a Canadian who doesn't watch hockey . Alexis McFarland: :O Andrew Minard: sacre bleu! Nijil tr'Korjata: I'm an American that does not watch football Alexis McFarland: We're 2-0.. We beat Columbus Chirakis: Ah. Then the snow? Alexis McFarland: No snow yet... here anyway. They had some in Alberta Andrew Minard: I hated sports when i was young Andrew Minard: now i love baseball and football, basketball not so much Nijil tr'Korjata: I'm off to get a drink. Night all mimipavilion: night all see ya next week Alexis McFarland: I liked basketball last year . Goodnight! Andrew Minard: 2018, who won? Scott Coleridge: Chirakis, just sent you an email since I know you're probably having trouble using the chat fully on mobile. Alexis McFarland: The Raptors eh Andrew Minard: lol Andrew Minard: woot! Chirakis: Good night to all who are leaving. Hopefully I will be back in the saddle next week. Chirakis: Very well done Commander. Andrew Minard: good night all Scott Coleridge: I'm also off. Hit me up by email if you need anything! Chirakis: Thank you, Commander.
