We are still trying to pin down the reason for illness. The illness seems to be selective. Captain Chirakis is in the medical complex to discuss the same problem aboard USS Missouri.

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: ::turns around:: Yeah, sure. ::heads over:: Tarisa: I would recommend testing those that are unaffected too. It could be that we have this as well, we just have not shown symptoms yet. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Walking with Annisha back to their quarters :: Alexis McFarland: ::With Miana after Annisha's dad came to pick her up:: Tarisa: Miana> ::Frowns.:: I hope she feels better...

That seemed to go well mimipavilion: ::takes a seat behind her desk:: Alexis McFarland: ::hugs Miana:: I think she'll be fine. Maybe she just needs a glass of warm milk, that always seems to help me sleep. Dacia Sandero: Dr. Pepper> Thanks, Lieutenant. I think that went as well as could be expected. We'll keep you in touch if we find anything of course. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: translator gave a loud chirp, Annisha jumps :: Sorry.... :: pauses :: Oh, it works now.

They are having a problem with illness as well. ::passes the PADD from Scott to Mimi::: Scott Coleridge: ::waiting for the doctors' reactions:: Dacia Sandero: ::reads the PADD over someone's shoulder:: Chirakis: As you can see, their illnesses are slightly different from ours. mimipavilion: ::takes the PADD, reviewing the info::surprised:: That's... odd. Dacia Sandero: Interesting. Johnson Kenyon: ::Dr. Pepper:: Send my thanks to your department as well. I'm actually off shift, but I will make sure everyone is checked up on Dacia Sandero: Dr. Pepper> Sure, thanks will do. Dacia Sandero: ::noting the difference in symptoms as well:: Alexis McFarland: You feeling hungry or something? Wanna go get something to eat? mimipavilion: I take it the symptoms started about the same time as us. Chirakis: ::nod:: They did. Approximately the same time. Johnson Kenyon: ::looks at Nijil's office. Tempted to move in his stuff, but decides against it. Besides, it's time for a much needed break:: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Moments or minutes later Annisha and Nijil enter their quarters :: Chirakis: You might not be aware that they are putting together the pieces of the destroyed stealth starship that tried to attack Aegis. Tarisa: Miana> ::Nods.:: Yes! Nijil tr'Korjata: (watch for traps. Scratch that) Alexis McFarland: ::smiles:: Mm, okay. 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. Scott Coleridge: Since everything about this ship is inscrutably stealthy Chirakis: ::pondering that point::: Alexis McFarland: ::thinks, but doesn't know enough about Missouri to go far with that:: Dacia Sandero: :::doesn't know about the Missouri to have an opinion either way: Scott Coleridge: I wonder, if Missouri were to... move farther away... would Aegis recover? Scott Coleridge: That is, is this a proximity phenomenon? 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. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Annisha, now lying down :: Father, will the dreams stop? mimipavilion: ::nods:: Wouldn't hurt for you to get another to see what we didn't see the first time. Nijil tr'Korjata: I hope so. :: Nijil says, looking at the UT logs :: Chirakis: ::checks to see if the doctor's door is secure::: It's interesting that not all species on Aegis are getting the illness. Johnson Kenyon: ::takes a deep breath,picks up a PADD and walks around engineering checking on the condition of the engineers:: Tarisa: Miana> ::Blubby's is fine. mimipavilion: ::nods:: True. Chirakis: And.. unfortunately... there is another possibility that we should consider. Dacia Sandero: ::::nods:: Mm, yes mimipavilion: ::concerned:: Which is? Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Goes to get Annisha something to calm her. Tea perhaps :: Dacia Sandero: ::listens:: Chirakis: :::dour expression::: The gremlin-like species that moved to attack Aegis might have been sent there to spread whatever the illness is… Meaning that it could have been done specifically to send out a strain of virus to destroy us on Aegis. Though it is highly unlikely. Dacia Sandero: We could run some tests, I imagine we must have DNA samples from the gremlins on hand? Chirakis: We do. Jylliene: ::arrives at their quarters:: Jylliene: ::enters:: mimipavilion: ::nods:: I take the Missouri medical team has done a thorough scan of the pilot.

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. Johnson Kenyon: +Medical+ Lt Kenyon to Medical Dacia Sandero: ::Scott:: I think that's a good start. Nijil tr'Korjata: Her bad dreams.. my repeat dreams of seeing the same wo- person over and over.

Johnson Kenyon: ::sticking around on the upper decks to run some environmental scans:: Chirakis: I understand that Lt Commander Tarisa has been working on the project as well. Perhaps she should be informed. Jylliene: Nothing unusual. mimipavilion: ::nods:: Dacia Sandero: ::nods:: Jylliene: You know, back at the academy to take a class I somehow forgot to take, arriving at the CnC in pajamas, all the usual stuff. Nijil tr'Korjata: I know you will think it's funn- Not unusual? Jylliene: No, I have both of those from time to time. Chirakis: Anything else? :::glance around:: Jylliene: ::Shrugs:: Dacia Sandero: Not for me.. Nijil tr'Korjata: Being male, or another person? mimipavilion: ::shakes her head:: Not at the moment. Jylliene: No, both as me. Nijil tr'Korjata: I keep on having very similar dreams. I always see the same other woman in the dream and I always wake up lying down. Chirakis: ::looks to Scott::: Nijil tr'Korjata: Oh, both... Jylliene: Well, don't you usually wake up lying down? Jylliene: I usually see you asleep lying down... Scott Coleridge: Nothing else from me Chirakis: Very well. ::reaches for the PADD:: We will continue the observations. Keep us apprised. ::stands to exit:: Nijil tr'Korjata: I-I suppose. :: walks around, rubbing Annisha's hair as he passes :: I'm in some kind of lab...nothing I've seen before.

It actually makes little sense. Johnson Kenyon: ::three engineers walk into Medical:: reporting as ordered. Chirakis: A distraction? Jylliene: Anything you might have seen in the background at some point? Nijil tr'Korjata: I'm told to remain calm.. she knows my name. Dacia Sandero: ::heads out back to the main sickbay:: Jylliene: Or on an away mission, but have forgotten? Chirakis: ::the lift stops and the doors open:: mimipavilion: ::exits her office into main medical:: Nijil tr'Korjata: On the displays? Not a language I know, although with my speech problem perhaps it's related. Chirakis: :::Scott:: Get some rest, Commander. I will put out the word for half shifts, just to be careful. Scott Coleridge: Understood. Scott Coleridge: We'll figure this out eventually. Chirakis: ::nod:: Dacia Sandero: Nurse> :::sees the engineers:: Yes, please head over to the bio beds. Nijil tr'Korjata: It's an iconographic language. Johnson Kenyon: ::3 engineers sit on the bio beds:: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: sits at the table :: Chirakis: ::stops by the OIC::: Anything to report? Nijil tr'Korjata: It's keeping my mind off of not being the Chief. Dacia Sandero: Nurse> ::does detailed scans of each of the engineers:: Chirakis: Officer in Command> No, ma'am. It's unusually quiet. Jylliene: ::sits with him:: Nijil tr'Korjata: Enough about me. How far along are you? Chirakis: I will be in my office. Johnson Kenyon: Thomas March> ::an engineer, looks at the nurse:: Do you have any idea what this is? Dacia Sandero: ::heads back to where Tarisa is (if she's still around) to brief her of what's happened:: Jylliene: Not very. I'll let the med team finish with this emergency before I bother them with something that should be fairly mundane. Chirakis: ::enters, and when the door closes, she tosses the PADD on her desk::: Nijil tr'Korjata: We are different species, so there are certain considerations, Dacia Sandero: Nurse> I'm not entirely sure at the moment. Rumour has it, this might be some sort of virus. Chirakis: ::then stares out the window::: Chirakis: (two minutes) mimipavilion: ::considers the information she had received:: Johnson Kenyon: Thomas March> A virus? I just thought it was the lack of coffee. Jylliene: True. I've looked up a fair bit on different known pairings and the results, but there's not a lot on your species. More on Vulcans, and I've tried to postulate a bit based on those. Jylliene: ::shrug:: Johnson Kenyon: ::continuing to scan deck by deck:: Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Gets up to embrace her :: Jylliene: I can go speak to them sooner rather than later, if it would make you feel better.

But I've had some interesting yet intermittent symptoms. Johnson Kenyon: (wait a minute... Dr. Pepper is a stimulant!) Dacia Sandero: Dr. P> Hello. Scott Coleridge: So I thought I would add one more data point to your set. Dacia Sandero: (The irony.. lol) Johnson Kenyon: Nice to meet you, Doctor, were you briefed on this discussion?

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.

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.

Now I have to deal with a station of personnel and civilians who need my attention. Chirakis: ::turns to look at Scott rather than the tac console::: Engineered for a certain group or species? Amanda Davis PhD: Um... ::looking around:: Lieutenant, there is no one there. Nijil tr'Korjata: :: rolls his eyes :: Tatou faÊ»amoemoe i ai. Dacia Sandero: ::still looking at the reports::: Amanda Davis PhD: Jake> Huh? Yes there is... she's right.... Tarisa: Anything in particular in my system that is helping? Nijil tr'Korjata: :: Tries his version of sign language, indicating he wanted to hear about Annisha's dream :: Amanda Davis PhD: Jake> Uh.. she's gone. 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. Dacia Sandero: ::nods:: Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Chirakis: Thank you Chirakis: Well done, as usual. Thank you for our 100% attendance. Chirakis: Stand by for the TBS Chirakis: TBS will be 7 hours, which will bring us to 2 pm. Chirakis: Comments, Commander Coleridge? Scott Coleridge: Nope Chirakis: Questions or comments from the crew? Dacia Sandero: Wouldn't that be 6 hours, since it's 8 am? Nijil tr'Korjata: To the airlock with you Dacia... Dacia Sandero: lol Chirakis: It's late. Let's make it 7 and 3 pm Dacia Sandero: Ok cool Chirakis: It's been a long, tiring week. Dacia Sandero: Ahh Johnson Kenyon: that will make it 2nd shift Chirakis: You can have your nibbles. Your tea would be at 4 pm Chirakis: Yes, it will, Mr Kenyon. Johnson Kenyon: wait... we have 4 shifts... so yes, 2nd shift. Chirakis: Anything else? Chirakis: Crew dismissed. Be well. Be Safe. Don’t forget your towel.
