Name and Rank: Lt. Cmdr. Lennox
Age: approx. 23 terran years
Position: Chief Medical Officer
A brief sentence or two describing your personality: My name is Lennox, just plain Lennox. I suppose it is a bit ironic, but I am a doctor and my life's goal is to do as much as I can to help as many people as possible. Yet so many describe me as cold and unfeeling. I suppose I am quiet and reserved, but I enjoy a good adventure, game, or even a good book, as much as the next person.

Name and Rank: Lt. Cmdr. Alex Riddle
Species/Homeworld: Vulcan/Human of Earth
Position: Chief Science Officer
A brief sentence or two describing your personality: Don't let my Vulcan-esque appearance full you. I have emotions just like your average human. I do however value logic and Vulcan teachings, I just interpret them differently than most. I can come across as serious, but I have a sense of humor as well.
I was raised on earth by a human father and a vulcan mother, the youngest of four siblings. I have always had an interest in the sciences as well as space travel. Before my assignment on the Intrepid, I was briefly stationed at the New Berlin station, working as a science officer.

Name and Rank: Captain Sara Patton
Species/Homeworld: Human/ San Fransciso, Earth
Position: Captain of the U.S.S. Maverik
A brief sentence or two describing your personality:
Sara has always strived for perfection in everything. She is a tough and demanding commander that always expects the best from her assignment and crew. Despite the brave facade Sara shows the officers under her, she is also an understanding and caring person. In Starfleet Academy, Sara scored high in diplomacy and had one of the highest ever scores on the Kobiashi Maru.
This will be her first command all her own, and though she is reluctant to admit it to anyone, there is a small seed of doubt in her mind.
28th Oct 2007, 11:36 AM
Name and Rank: Katian Ryoux, civilian
Age: 97 Solar Years
Species/Homeworld: El-Aurian/ El-Auria
Position: Lounge Hostess/ Bartender
A brief sentence or two describing your personality:
Like most El-Aurians, Kati is what they call a 'listener,' someone who can listen to one's problems and offer advice. She is patient and kind-spirited most of the time, but has a deep-seated hatred for the Borg and fiery temper when provoked. She has spent most of ler life traveling through the Federation, visiting various planets and learning about other cultures. Kati also has a 'sixth-sense.' It can be described as an awareness that supersedes the normal flow of time and space, and while she might not be capable of explaining her abilities, Kati can detect time changes that would be impossible for nearly all other species to pick up. This trait has been recognized within other individuals who were subjected to the Nexus energy ribbon phenomenon, which may be related to the sense.

*Captain's Ready Room*
The following is a transcript of the Captain's Log:
Captain Sara M. Patton, reporting for duty on the U.S.S. Maverick.
It still feels very odd to say that out loud. Captain Patton. This will be my first command under that title, and as such, I can't help but feel... somewhat apprehensive...
Its not that I think anything 'overly exciting' will occur during our tour along the Romulan Neutral Zone... In fact, it should be a great shake-down assignment for this crew.
Speaking of which, I'm still waiting for Starfleet to assign the rest of my Senior Staff members. So far only the Chief Science Officer, Chief Tatical Officer, and Chief Medical Officer have reported in.
I wonder what kind of person my First Officer will be... I've already met many fine candidates on Starbase 257. Perhaps they will be assigned soon so our mission can commence...
I have scheduled meetings with the three officers mentioned and I look forward to geting to know all of them. Patton out.
Capt. Patton: Computer, save log entry in file 'Patton-Alpha Seven.'
Computer: beep. Log Entry Saved.
Capt. Patton: Good. Please inform... looks at PADD ... Doctor Lennox that I will be in Sickbay shortly.
Computer: beep beep. Message Sent.
29th Oct 2007, 8:57 AM
The android walks throughout sickbay, taking an inventory of the supplies and his personnel, most of whom have not reported in duty. A medic hands him a PADD which indicates that the captain will report to sickbay shortly to meet with him. He straightens the room to the best of his ability and awaits Captain Patton's arrival.
29th Oct 2007, 9:19 AM
On the way to her meeting, Patton passed countless crewmen preparing the newly minted Maverick for her journey. Consoles were calibrated, sytens checks were being preformed, and even certain sections were reciving a fresh coat of paint.
Patton couldn't help but feel a touch of pride everytime an officer would stop their work just to acknowldge her presense. In some ways she felt that kind of respect wasn't meant for her. At least not this soon.
Sick Bay was the most hetic spot aboard the ship. Patton watched as various medical staff zig and zag through the chaos to make sure they were all ready. An ensign passed by where the Captain was standing and emmediatly came to attention.
Medical Ensign: Oh, Captain, sir! salutes
Capt. Patton: smiles At ease, Ensign. I'm looking for the CMO, a Doctor Lennox?
Medical Ensign: Yes, sir. He recieved your message. He's waiting in his office. I can show you where it is...
Capt. Patton: That won't be necessary. Thank you for your help, Ensign.
Medical Ensign: Yes, sir. walks off
After a bit of looking around and dodging a shipment of hyposprays, Patton found Dr. Lennox's office. He seemed to be quiet busy organizing medical files when she knocked on the doorframe.
Capt. Patton: Doctor Lennox, I presume?
29th Oct 2007, 9:22 AM
Lennox looks up from the piles of PADDs stacked on his desk, crates of hyposprays, autosutures.
Lennox: Oh! Captain Patton, I presume! *stands* Yes, I am Dr. Lennox, it is a pleasure to meet you, sir.
29th Oct 2007, 9:27 AM
Capt. Patton: I hope you don't mind the intrusion, Doctor, but I wanted to meet the members of my Senior Staff before we got underway. Is there anything I can do for you or something you need to discuss?
29th Oct 2007, 9:29 AM
Lennox: Well... no sir, not unless you could find my medical staff. It seems that most of the crew has not arrived yet.
29th Oct 2007, 9:42 AM
Capt. Patton: Yes, so I noticed. We're still missing most of the Medical and Engineering crews and four of my staff, including the First Officer. sighs There's nothing I can really do until Starfleet asigns them.
Patton takes a closer look at the CMO.
Capt. Patton: If you don't mind my mentioning it, when I was looking over some personel files, I noticed you were listed as an Android. I find that a very intresting fact, Doctor Lennox. Are you a fully certified doctor or are you just programmed to be one?
29th Oct 2007, 9:50 AM
Lennox gives a strangely organic, nervous smile as he answers his captain.
Lennox: No sir, I am a regular doctor. I have obtained several medical degrees, in fact. And I am the only person who I have known who started Starfleet Academy at twelve years of age. My initial programming was enough to make me function as a normal, adult male human. With heightened senses and cognitive abilities, naturally, I make an outstanding computer, but I also feel pain, emotion, most importantly in this feild, empathy. My creators wanted me to chose my own path, and I did. I chose medicine.
Lennox studies the captains face for signs of comprehension.
Lennox: That being said, I must apologize for the state of sickbay. It will not always be like this, i assure you.

Name and Rank: Lt. Junior Grade Milo Sharpp
Species/Homeworld: Human, New Berlin Colony
A brief sentence or two describing your personality:
Milo Sharpp is a brilliant scientist. He is also a neurotic, slightly paranoid, socially inept, accident prone, hypochondriac. He wears glasses after repeatedly refusing eye surgery with the explaination "I don't trust doctors". His only surviving relative is an older sister who is also a Starfleet officer. He has few friends and spends most of his free time in his quarters doing research.
29th Oct 2007, 10:00 AM
Name and Rank: Lt. T'lei
Species/Homeworld: Vulcan/Mars Colony
Position: Security Officer
A brief sentence or two describing your personality:
T'lei applies her Vulcan ideals of logic to her work as a security officer. She has been a Starfleet officer for six years, before which, she worked on the local security force of the Mars Colony, where she resided with her parents and siblings. She, like most Vulcans, is very serious and very logical.
29th Oct 2007, 10:02 AM
Capt. Patton: It's quite all right, Doctor. I understand how hetic things will be until we're all accustomed to... this new experience. You were admitted into the Academy at twelve years... That is impressive. And its good to know that my CMO has the ability to adapt and experience what his patients feel.
Well, I should get going! There is a lot of work to do, as I'm sure you're aware of. smiles I'll leave you to it. It was a pleasure to meet you, Doctor Lennox.
29th Oct 2007, 10:16 AM
Once the captain leaves, Dr. Lennox orders his staff to try to pick up the pace, because he expects sickbay to be in perfect working order before they leave the starbase.
T'lei walks throughout security, attempting to locate Lt. Janeway to complain about the disorder of the security section and to make several reccomendations of how to re-organize it. She almost gets the impression that he is hiding from her.
Chief Science officer, Lt. Riddle calibrates the controls on the bridge. he was well aware that they had already been calibrated at Jupiter Station, but does not quite trust the engineers there. He has yet to meet the captain, or the rest of the senior staff, but has read Patton's files and can tell that she is a formidable woman. He just realized that Lt. Lennox was the chief medical officer, the two had worked together for over a year at starfleet medical and became close friends.
Suddenly, a science officer walked onto the bridge. He was slender, somewhat short, and wore thick spectacles. As he stood before Lt. Riddle, he seemed most unsure as of where to put his hands.
Sharpp: Ltjg. Sharpp reporting for duty, sir!
Riddle: *smiles* At ease, Mr. Sharpp, I'm not the captain, you know. It is a pleasure to meet you. Now if you don't have anything else to do, help me to calibrate these controls.
Sharpp: Y-y-yes sir! Uhmmm... s-sir? Aren't they already calibrated? *raises an eyebrow*
Riddle: Yes Mr. Sharpp, but I don't trust those grease monkies down at Jupiter Station to have any clue as to what they are supposed to be doing.
Sharpp: I see sir... what about the science labs?
Riddle: I already have the other lab techs working on it, this seemed to be a bit more important.

Capt. Patton: That's quite all right, Counselor. I had scheduled a meeting with you anyway. How do you find things on board, so far?
29th Oct 2007, 11:38 PM
Once the bridge controls met Riddle's standards, he decided to locate the ships first officer. It had come to his attention that she had just boarded and he wanted to meet her.
Riddle: Computer, locate Lt. Bijaj.

*Corridor Outside of Sickbay*
As the Captain was speaking to Counselor D'ar, the computer sent a message to her Comm. Badge.
Ensign Joran: Ensign Joran to Captain Patton. You're needed in Security for some assignment approvals.
Capt. Patton: sighs, taps badge Very well, Ensign. I'm on my way. Patton out. turns back to Counselor D'ar I'm sorry, Counselor, but duty calls. We can continue this at a later time.
Patton gives her good-bye in a nod and heads to the nearest turbolift.
Capt. Patton: Deck Twelve, Security.
30th Oct 2007, 12:04 AM
Riddle Computer! Computer? *taps com badge* Science officer to engineering, the computer voice recognition system on deck five is malfunctioning.
Riddle makes his way to the science lab to check in on his staff.
The main room of the laboratory is a mess. Officers and sifting in and out like ants, unpacking equiptment and organizing specimen samples. Riddle manages to enter unnoticed and enters his office where he proceeds to assess the inventory for the science and research department.
T'lei sees the captain enter security and immediately stands in the position of attention and responds in her flat, Vulcan tone.
T'lei: May I help you sir?
30th Oct 2007, 12:10 AM
Patton exits the turbolift to find a Vulcan Lt. at the entrance.
Capt. Patton: Yes, I was called to make some assignment approvals and to speak with our new Tactial Officer.
30th Oct 2007, 12:19 AM
T'lei: I have been trying to locate him as well, sir. He seems most illusive.
30th Oct 2007, 12:28 AM
((OOC: That's okay. Its my bad.))
Capt. Patton: taps comm. badge Captain Patton to Lieutenant Janeway. Are you in Section Seven A still?
30th Oct 2007, 12:44 AM
Capt. Patton: I'll meet you there then, Lieutanant. to Lt. T'lei Just send those assignment documents to my office, Lieutanant. Thanks.
Patton walks past the Engineering crew and last-minute tune-ups to find Lt. Janeway's office at the very back of Seven A.
Capt. Patton: Lieutanant Janeway? I'm Captain Sara Patton. It's a pleasure to meet you.
30th Oct 2007, 12:48 AM
T'lei nods as the captain leaves and makes her way to a control panel to send her the correct documents.
30th Oct 2007, 12:57 AM
Capt. Patton: smiles I'm glad to hear that, Lieutanant. Tell me, you wouldn't be related to Admiral Janeway, would you?

A brief sentence or two describing your personality: Candy is a rather arrogant person who chose her career simply for the status. She had a reputation at her previous assignment on Deep Space 7 as being promiscuous and known liar. This reputation was not entirely false.
30th Oct 2007, 1:09 AM
Capt. Patton: You come from a long line of great Starfleet officers, Isain. I'm sure you'll make them all very proud. smiles
While I'm here, is there anything you need from me to make this first day any easier?
30th Oct 2007, 1:21 AM
Capt: Patton: Very good, Lieutanant. I'll expect you to report to the Bridge at your soonest convience to familarize yourself with the Tatical Station. Have a good day. nods, then leaves

A brief sentence or two describing your personality: Though minded and cool in a crisis. Lt. Woods isn't one to loose his head in a crunch. Before being assigned to the Maverick he worked on Deep Space Nine under Captain Kira Nerys. During his tour of duty on Deep Space Nine he was reprimanded for his involvement in illegal gambling activities. Woods takes pride in his work and Maori roots, which he shows by extensive use of body art. He may appear unfriendly and distant at first. But those who know him, will tell you that he is a warm and caring person buried beneath a sarcastic exterior. His hobbies are tribal dancing and ancient languages. He is also an excellent opera singer.
30th Oct 2007, 1:50 AM
((OOC: Hi, Motom! You can fit Rann anywhere you want. Thanks for joining!))
Patton rode the turbolift the few decks up and over to the Science Department. Lt. Alex Riddle was another officer she was looking forward to meeting. According to his Profile, he quite the accomplished scientist and had high leadership skills. Riddle was sure to make a fine addition to the crew.
Capt. Patton: to a Science Officer Excuse me, which way is the CSO's Office?
Science Officer:Captain Patton. nods I would be glad to show you, sir.
Capt. Patton: Thank you, Officer.
The Officer polietly presses the comm. on the office door.
Science Officer: Sir, Captain Patton is here to see you.
30th Oct 2007, 1:58 AM
Riddle *over com* Aye, ensign. I will be right there.
Riddle exist his office to find the rather radiant Captain Patton standing before him.
Riddle It is a pleasure to meet you sir, I look forward to serving with you.
30th Oct 2007, 2:10 AM
Lt. Woods enters engineering and looks at his new workplace. well this is certainly a change from Deep Space Nine. He smiles to himself and whistles a tune as he goes and checks the warp core.
Ensign Tahlandi is busy decorating his quarters. He hopes his roommate doesn't mind his Bajoran art collection. He gently places a picture of him and his adoptive parents beside his bed stand. He wonders if his roommate would mind if he put up some curtains. Tahlandi looks a final time at his room and decides to report to his duty station.
30th Oct 2007, 2:13 AM
Capt. Patton: Lieutenant Alex Riddle, I have heard good things about you and your service record, and I expect that you'll keep that record on the Maverick.
30th Oct 2007, 2:25 AM
*Corridor outside Sickbay*
Counsellor Threllon D'ar breathes a sigh of relief.
"Whew, I sure made a fool of myself in front of the captain. Thank goodness she was called away before she really noticed me."
Walks to her small office inside Sickbay and sits behind her desk, staring at the empty couch across from it.
"I'd better start getting my act together before anyone realizes how intimidated I am."
30th Oct 2007, 2:27 AM
((OOC: I am of to bed))
Lt. Woods is running a complete diagnostic check of the warp core and the stability of the warp field. He finds some minor glitches, that are easily solved.
Lt. Woods: Crewman No would you care to assist me with some minor adjustments to the warp field seeing that is your specialty.
Crewman 2nd class No: Yes Sir.
The two man start making the appropriate adjustments. Although they are not really necessary, but when it comes to his work as an engineer perfection wasn't good enough for Lt. Woods. He just hopes his Engineering team has the same work standard, but for now this remains to be seen
30th Oct 2007, 2:32 AM
Commander Bijaj strides across the Bridge and glares around her.
Comm. Bijaj: "All stations report. Tactical report! Science Officer, report! All crew pepare for the captain's inspection!"
30th Oct 2007, 2:33 AM
Riddle: I certainly intend to, sir. I hope that this will be a most scientifically illuminating mission.
Ltjg. Sharpp eavesdrops on the conversation between Riddle and Patton as he unpacks a crate of petri dishes. He hopes and prays that the captain will not want to speak to him. He pushes his glasses up his nose and does his best to look busy.
Nurse Candy leans against a biobed watching her crewmates work. Dr. Lennox notices her idle behavior and decides to confront her.
Lennox: Is something wrong, nurse?
Candy: *steps closer to him* no sir, nothing at all. I was just admiring what a well assembled sickbay this is.
Lennox: It would be more productive to assist in its preperation for our journey.
Candy: Has anyone ever told you what beautiful eyes you have...
Lennox: My ocular implants are irrelevant, nurse-
Nurse Candy puts her hand on the side of his face. Lennox quickly jerks it away, holding her wrist tightly.
Lennox Nurse! I did not give you permission to do that. I do not understand how one can be a competant medical professional without a simple regard for the privacy and security of others, and I am disgusted that I must reprimand you before we even begin our mission!
Candy *trying to be seductive* Well, sir... I could make it up to you, if you know what I mean... no one has to know-
Lennox: Ensign! *grabs Candy's wrist again and leads her to his office* Must I now also add bribery to the list of charges? I don't know what you did on Deep Space Seven, and frankly I don't want to know. But In my sickbay, this behavior is unacceptable! I am relieving you of duty for the rest of this shift and will report these actions to the captain.
Candy: Yes sir... you don't know what your missing-
Lennox: Get out, now.
30th Oct 2007, 2:41 AM
Counsellor D'ar observes the interaction between Nurse Candy and Dr. Lennox. "Boy, this is going to take careful handling."
Counsellor D'ar (calling to Dr. Lennox): "Sir, may I speak to you for a moment?"
30th Oct 2007, 2:46 AM
Lennox moves towards Counselor D'ar with mechanical fluidity.
Lennox: Yes counselor, what is it?
30th Oct 2007, 2:48 AM
Capt. Patton: Perhaps it will be. Our secondary mission is to monitor spacial fluxes along the Federation side of the Neutral Zone. looks around the lab I've never been much of a scientist myself, but it has always held a special fascination for me.
Patton watches Ltjg. Sharpp unpack petri dishes nearby. She walks over to speak with him.
Capt. Patton: How are you today, Lieutenant?
30th Oct 2007, 2:51 AM
Sharpp jumps at the sound of her voice and nearly knocks off the entire case of petri dishes. He swallows hard and tries to calculate a coherent response.
Sharpp: I-I uhh... I'm d-d-doing well, sir.
30th Oct 2007, 2:55 AM
Counsellor D'ar: Hello, Dr. Lennox. Thank you for selecting me for your staff. This is my first assignment and I hope I will meet your needs. Do you wish to set my schedule yourself? Do you have any specific goals you wish me to pursue?
D'ar tentatively stretches out her hand to shake hands with Dr. Lennox.
30th Oct 2007, 2:58 AM
Capt. Patton: I'm glad to hear it--
Patton's comm. badge goes off, followed by the computer's voice.
Computer: Incoming Message For Captain Patton.
Capt. Patton: taps badge Patch it through to Resarch Lab Five. to Lt. Riddle Do you mind if I take this in your office?
30th Oct 2007, 3:07 AM
Riddle: By all means captain.
Lennox returns the gesture and shakes the counselors hand, a strange human custom he never quite understood.
Lennox: I am quite pleased to have you on my staff, your credentials were excellent. However, I think you are quite capable of working autonomously. And as for now, it seems the most important goal would be the mental health and emotional well being of this crew. *smiles* I have a great deal of confidence in you.
Lennox could tell from her speech and actions that she was feeling most unconscious, accelerated heart rate, breathing. So he did his best to try to put her at ease. The soft voice and reassurance that organic beings seemed to be so dependent on.When in all actuality, he was just as nervous. This was his first medical command and he didn't quite know what to do with all the responsibility. Still, maintaining the facade of calm was necessary in this role. But he must be careful not to maintain too much control for that breeds lack of appreciation of life, cruelty... something he knew all to much about. The dark specters of his past haunted him constantly, but allowed him to keep in perspective the meaning of suffering.
30th Oct 2007, 3:13 AM
D'ar shakes Dr. Lennox's hand tentatively.
"Well, I guess that went well considering he's not human. So I'm on my own (gulp). Time to put my training into action."
Walks out of Sickbay.
"Time to get out there and meet the crew".
Heads toward 10-Forward

Capt. Patton: Thank you, Lieutenant Riddle.
Patton steps into Riddle's office and accessed the computer terminal.
Computer: First Officer Commander Bijaj Has Reported For Duty At 0915 Hours.
Capt. Patton: nods, taps comm. badge Captain Patton to Commander Bijaj. Please report to my Ready Room at your convience.
She shuts off the terminal and goes back to where Lt. Riddle is waiting.
Capt. Patton: I'm sorry about this, but my First Officer has arrived and needs to be briefed. It was a pleasure to meet you, Lieutenant. leaves for the turbolift
30th Oct 2007, 3:19 AM
Col. Bijaj taps off her comm badge. "Hmmm, my meeting with the captain needs to take place. Although she's not Klingon, I hope she has the heart of a warrior."
Col. Bijaj: "Lt. Sarlak, take the helm."
Strides toward the Captain's ready room.
30th Oct 2007, 3:25 AM
"Aye sir" Riddle says as the captain leaves the room, he stands near Sharpp who is still shaking.
Riddle: You'll get used to it, Sharpp. We'll make a fine officer of you yet.
Riddle heads for the bridge to take his post.
Riddle takes a seat at the science station and begins to check his sensor panels. Everything is in check, so he swings around in his chair and watches everyone on the bridge for a moment. And everything seems in place.
30th Oct 2007, 3:32 AM
*Captain's Ready Room*
Patton arrives and makes herself comfortable while she waits for her new First Officer. It has been a hetic first day so far, she was ready for her last few Senior Officers to arrive so they can get this mission started.
Capt. Patton: Water with ice, twenty-five degrees Celcius.
A glass appears in the Ready Room replicator, she takes it and sits at the table to wait.
30th Oct 2007, 3:41 AM
*Captain's Ready Room"
Col. Bijaj: "Lt. Col Bijaj reporting, sir! The bridge is ready for launch and all is awaiting your orders."
Col. Bijaj nods toward the Captain and stands at attention.
30th Oct 2007, 3:51 AM
Counsellor D'ar walks into 10-Forward. She looks around. "The place is pretty empty right now." Everyone was at stations getting ready for take off. "Good time to meet the 'bartender'."
D'ar: "Hello, I'm the Ship's Counsellor, Threllon D'ar. I think from reading the crew files that you must be Katian Ryoux. Am I right?
Katian smiles and nods. "What may I serve you?"
D'ar: "Oh, a synthehol Pina Colada would be fine. I'm not on duty right now so I can celebrate our new mission a little. Tell me about yourself, Katian. May I call you Katian?"
30th Oct 2007, 3:52 AM
*Captain's Ready Room*
Capt. Patton: Thank you, Commander, but we can't leave until the rest of the crew arrives. motions to a empty chair Please, have a seat. How much do you know about our upcomming mission?
30th Oct 2007, 4:00 AM
Riddle awaits the word of the captain and the first officer. The latter of which seems to be rather headstrong and forceful, even by Klingon standards. But the captain is far more reserved, more elegant. Her black flowing hair and delicate wrists, the alabaster shade of her skin... These thoughts were most unbecoming to a Vulcan, or at least a half- Vulcan. His human side had momentarily taken over him as his thoughts turned to what he would do with a moment alone with her. He pushes them from his mind and attempts to focus on his tasks. He could not afford such a distraction, and begins to wish he would have taken his Vulcan beliefs a bit more literally in regards to the suppression of emotion. For he believed all his life until this moment, that emotions must be controlled, not completly absent.
30th Oct 2007, 4:00 AM
Katian busies herself with the pina colada while thinking about D'ar's question.
Katian: Most of my friends just call me Kati. So you can, too. smiles And as for myself... Well, there isn't a whole lot to tell. I'm an El-Aurian, so that's kind of rare, I suppose. What about you? Being a ship's Counsellor must be an interesting job...
30th Oct 2007, 4:04 AM
*Captain's Ready Room*
Col. Bijaj snorts under her breath. This was a captain she could possibly respect.
Col. Bijaj stands down but still does not sit.
Col. Bijaj: "I prefer to stand, Sir! I have been given no details of our mission. I'm sure you will tell me what I need to know! I can only hope that our assignment will bring glory to the Empire...er, I mean to Starfleet!!"
30th Oct 2007, 4:12 AM
D'ar stares nervously at her hands and pushes back her hair.
Counselor D'ar: "Well, there's not much to tell. I'm Trill and I'm not joined as yet. This is my first assignment and I'm really looking forward to it. I thought this would be a good place to informally meet some of the crew and start to plan my schedule around their needs."
"I've never met an El-Aurian before but I have studied your culture. It's a sad tale!! Do you have any family?"
30th Oct 2007, 4:13 AM
*Captain's Ready Room*
Patton eyed the Klingon woman. This one was headstrong... and did she say 'Empire?'
Capt. Patton: Yes, well... Our mission will be primarliy to patrol the Federation side of the Romulan Neutral Zone. It's relativly a routine assignment, but I would like to use this opportuinity to test our crew's resolve and ability to perform. What I want from you is to keep an eye on crew performance and to make sure things run as smoothly as possible. If there are any problems, I give you full discression to handle it the way you see fit. Is that understood, Commander?
Katian: My mother is on Earth. After our... relocation, that's where we decided to live. I do have an godmother as well, but she is a bit of a traveler. We don't see each other as much as we would like.
What about you? Any family back on Trill?
30th Oct 2007, 4:24 AM
(((I'm really really interested in joining this, but I've never played a role play before. Does anyone have any good links for guides or references?

*Captain's Ready Room*
Col. Bijaj looks at the Captain steadily, her hands behind her back.
Col Bijaj: "Thank you, Sir. You may count on me to maintain order and discipline! If I may speak freely, Sir, any mission close to the neutral zone may be a dangerous one!! I will make sure to maintain military standards at all times."
"If that is all, Sir, I will return to the Bridge and await the remainder of the crew. As soon as all are accounted for, I will notify you!!"
Col. Bijaj nods her head towards the captain and turns to leave.
30th Oct 2007, 4:29 AM

Patton waited until Bijaj left the room before she released the breath she had been holding. Klingons were a tricky bunch, and to have one as a First Officer... She'll just have to work that much harder to keep the peace among everyone...
30th Oct 2007, 4:34 AM
Counsellor D'ar: Well, Kari, I do have family back on Trill. Most of them are in medical services. I took a little bit of a left turn in studying psychology but the "human" psyche fascinates me...I mean the psyches of all intelligent lifeforms....well, you know what I mean!!
D'ar twirls her glass, then sips the drink.
Counsellor D'ar: As an El-Aurian, you are a sensitive, aren't you? Maybe we could be allies in a sense...in helping our crewmates?
D'ar smiles nervously at Kari.
30th Oct 2007, 4:40 AM
Col. Bijaj strides on to the deck and spots Lt. Riddle twirling in his chair, watching the crew.
Col. Bijaj: "Science Officer, report!"
30th Oct 2007, 4:43 AM
(((OOC: It's not anything major, edejan, but its 'Kati' not 'Kari.' :) )))
Katian: smiles In a manner of speaking we are. Most El-Aurians who have been in contact with a phenonmon called 'The Nexus' have shown to display a... Sixth-sense. Something that most other species can't claim to sense. Not to mention my people are nortorious as 'listeners'. I think we can help each other out.
30th Oct 2007, 4:46 AM
Riddle: *jerks to attention* All systems functioning at maximum efficiency, sir. All science personnel have reported for duty.
30th Oct 2007, 4:51 AM
(((OOC - oops! Sorry!! Kati it is!)))
Counselor D'ar: (smiling) It's a deal then!
Extending her hand toward Kati - shakes hand, then gets up to leave.
Counselor D'ar: I'll be back - often! This will be like my second office!!
30th Oct 2007, 4:55 AM
Col. Bijaj: Maj - good! We await the captain's orders then. All hands to stations, prepare to depart upon command!
Bijaj looks at the science officer appraisingly. "Hmm, he does not strike me as a typical Vulcan. His emotions seem closer to the surface..maybe more like a Romulan!!"
30th Oct 2007, 4:59 AM
Kati: shakes hands I'll be sure to reserve you a seat. Have a nice day, Counselor!
*Captain's Ready Room*
Patton decided that if this command was to run the way she attended, she'd need advice.
Capt. Patton: taps comm. badge Captain Patton to Counselor D'ar. Please report to my Ready Room. I would like to speak with you.
30th Oct 2007, 5:05 AM
Counselor D'ar's comm badge beeps. She taps it - it's the Captain.
Counselor D'ar: Yes, Captain, I'm on my way!
D'ar nervously pushes back her hair and straightens her uniform. "Well, I guess I'm meeting the Captain! I must act confidently!!"
She walks to the Captain's Ready Room and pushes the button. The Captain calls out, "Enter." D'ar walks in and smiles at the Captain.
Counselor D'ar: "Greetings, Captain Patton. I'm glad we have a chance to meet more formally."
30th Oct 2007, 5:06 AM
Riddle sits at is station, half observing his controls and half observing the Klingon first officer. Something about her made him nervous, she seemed quite apprehensive. He noticed how she kept staring at him and was not quite sure what to make of it. Finally he decided to make an inquiry.
Riddle:*to Bijaj* Might I assist you with something, sir?
30th Oct 2007, 5:12 AM
*Captain's Ready Roon*
Capt. Patton: So am I, Counselor. smiles Please have a seat. Tell me, do you have any experience with Klingon relations in Starfleet? Our new First Officer seems a little... Intense... And I'm worried that will have a negtive effect on the crew.
30th Oct 2007, 5:13 AM
Col. Bijaj is somewhat taken aback. She did not expect such insolence from a Vulcan, an officer and a subordinate! She glared at Lt. Riddle briefly but when he continued to stare at her, she turned her back to him and addressed him scathingly.
Col. Bijaj: You can "assist" me, Lieutenant, by giving your full attention to your station!
30th Oct 2007, 5:18 AM
*Captain's Ready Room*
Counselor D'ar: (somewhat surprised) Well, Captain, I did some cultural studies in school, though not in depth. From what I know, the Klingon culture is very honor-oriented and very military. Women and men are considered equal on the battlefield and a death in battle is considered ideal. Since we have developed more "peaceful" relations with the Klingon Empire, they have had a difficult time "fitting in" with our customs and the demands of courtesy.
30th Oct 2007, 5:22 AM
"Really sir" Riddle retorts with a sickeningly calm voice and blank expression. "I could make the same demand of you." He felt her eyes burning on his back, she hardly had room to tell HIM to pay attention to HIS work.
30th Oct 2007, 5:27 AM
*Captain's Ready Room*
Capt. Patton: Hmmm... Then I guess this is going to be somewhat like walking a tightrope. Balance is key. One the one hand, we have a fully Starfleet crew. The other, an honor-bound Klingon officer who has Klingon standards for command.
Thank you for your insight, Counselor. I'll think on it. Now how about you? Are you finding things on board to be... adequate?
30th Oct 2007, 5:33 AM
Col. Bijaj turned around with quiet fury and addressed Lt. Riddle.
Col. Bijaj: Walk with me, Lieutenant.
She strode into the corridor. Lt. Riddle followed but not with any great speed. She turned on him furiously..
Col. Bijaj: For your information, Lieutenant, making sure that you do your job IS my job! You WILL respect me in front of the rest of the crew. If this were a Klingon ship, I would have killed you where you stood! Back to your station now and the next time you defy me, you will be thrown in the Brig.
30th Oct 2007, 5:37 AM
*Captain's Ready Room*
Counselor D'ar: (smiling) Why, yes, Captain, I am very satisfied. My quarters are comfortable and my office is functional. I think I will find working with the CMO an interesting experience and I am looking forward to meeting the crew. Thank you for your interest! Please feel free to call me at any time or let me know if you have any special requests or projects.
30th Oct 2007, 5:38 AM
(((OOCGoing to bed now)))
30th Oct 2007, 5:42 AM
Riddle stands in front of Bijaj, examining her stature.
Riddle: Given that you are fit for command, of course. I don't know how long you have lived in the federation. But in Starfleet, respect is earned, not handed out to the next ruthless assassin in line to kill off their adversaries. Take a look around, this is not a Klingon vessel, and honestly, I would love to see you try to kill me. Are you so afraid of your responsibilities that you are willing to murder anyone who challenges you? Perhaps you should consider a new line of work, Sir!
Riddle turns his back on Bijaj and begins walking back to the bridge.
30th Oct 2007, 5:42 AM
*Captain's Ready Room*
Capt. Patton: Thank you, Counselor. I'll be sure to. smiles Well, I guess I can't advoid it anymore. Would you care to join me on the Bridge?
Patton stands with Counselor D'ar and walks out to the Bridge... Where she finds Commander Bijaj confronting Lt. Riddle off to one side in a angry tone.
Capt. Patton: Commander Bijaj. May I ask what this is about?
30th Oct 2007, 5:46 AM
Col. Bijaj: Insolence, sir! I find our Vulcan Science Officer has an insubordinate attitude. I'm sure that'd not condoned in Starfleet either (looking toward Lt. Riddle). Following your orders, Sir, I intend to maintain discipline on the Bridge.
30th Oct 2007, 5:51 AM
(((OOOC: Good night, edejan.)))
Capt. Patton: I see... What exactly did Lieutenant Riddle do that was insubordinate?
30th Oct 2007, 5:54 AM
Riddle stood about five meters away from the two women, arms crossed and jaw rigidly clenched, waiting for the first officer's next ridiculous statement, thinking "And they think humans are overly emotional..."
30th Oct 2007, 5:54 AM
(((Wait, I have to answer)))
Col. Bijaj: His attitude is insubordinate, Sir. It is improper for a subordinate to speak disrespectfully to his superior officer!! Maintaining discipline is of highest importance on a military vessel!
30th Oct 2007, 6:03 AM
(((OOC: All right.... Now, good night. :P )))
Capt. Patton: You are correct, Commander... However, we are not on a military assignment, nor are we at war. I commend you for trying to keep order, but keep in mind that Starfleet regulations do not call for death threats.
Lieutenant Riddle, Commander Bijaj is your commanding officer. I do not want to hear any more reports of you being disrespectful. Is that clear?
She gives each officer a stern look
Both of you return to your posts.
Satisfied that peace has been restored, Patton takes the center seat for the first time. Now all they had to do was wait...
30th Oct 2007, 6:23 AM
"Aye captain" He says through gritted teeth as he returned to his station. Though his irritation was not for the captain, no, but for the Klingon woman at her side. He knew this would not be the last incident, and he decided to bide his time until then. He was sure that first officer would proceed to make very questionable command decisions throughout their missions. For the love of logic, she thought that the Maverick was a military vessel! Riddle sinks into his seat and stares at the ever-steady panel readings on the screen before him.
30th Oct 2007, 8:06 AM
Col. Bijaj nodded to her captain and returned to stand at her post next to the captain's chair. Of course she could not question her captain's orders but these humans were too soft!! Not a military mission!!! Every mission is a military mission. A warrior must always be prepared for battle especially near the Romulan border...hmmm...that Vulcan was very strange for a Vulcan. Usually they were so predictable and even tempered, really without passion but with honor. This one was odd....and the Romulans were simply Vulcans with no emotional control...like Riddle. Truly he must be closely watched...
30th Oct 2007, 11:44 AM
A npc to be used by all.
Name and Rank: Master chief petty officer Syldra Vado
Age: mid thirties
Position: Transporter Chief
A brief sentence or two describing your personality: Chief Syldra is a very capable transporter engineer. A sociable person she spends most of her free time socializing in Ten Forward or directing and writing Holoplays for her theatregroup. Back home she has a husband, a professor assigned to the Vulcan Science Academy and co-husband who is a jazz-musician.
30th Oct 2007, 12:21 PM
Name and rank: Lt. Commander Tara sh’Raazh
Age: equivalent of 45 human years
Position: senior Navigation/OPS officer
A brief sentence or two describing your personality: Tara is not your typical Star Fleet officer. She is highly aggressive and brutally upfront. This of course is not uncommon for Andorian women, but for Tara her aggressive nature is known to interfere with her work. She constantly butts heads with her superior officers and has spent a year in a penal facility for slugging Vice-Admiral Gral after a violent disagreement. The conditions of her return to active duty are very strict, she has to attend counselling session on regular basis.
30th Oct 2007, 7:18 PM
Lt. cmdr. sh’Raazh boards the Maverick. This will be her new chance in life, to prove herself worthy of her rank and uniform. But still her new lease on Star Fleet live comes at a price: weekly counselling session with the ships counsellor, not something she is looking forward too. Her antennae’s twitch at the thought of spilling her most inner feelings to a complete stranger. But than again everything is better than her former home, the penal colony on Australia. She walks towards the turbo lift.
Lt. cmdr. Sh’Raazh: computer deck 1 bridge
Ensign Tahlandi enters sickbay. For some of his neurological experiments he needs the premision and supervision of a medical doctor. He looks at his PADD, according to his information the chief medical officer is an android named Lennox. Tahlandi never met an artificial life form before, his scientific curiosity was certainly sparked. He wonders if the doctor would mind if he preformed some psychological test on him. Just to see want makes him tick, so to speak. His sparkling blue eyes survey the medical bay as he looks for Lennox.
Tahlandi: Doctor Lennox? I need your approval for some of my research involving neurological pathways that are involved in Betazoid and Vulcan telepathy.
Lt Woods finishes his work on the warp core. He starts a complete system diagnostic check of the Maverick and assigns about one third of his engineering crew to bring everything in order for their departure. He goes into his office and reads a report filed by Lt. Riddle about a malfunction of the communication system. Damn we haven’t left dry dock and already there are system malfunctions.
Lt. Woods: *taps com badge* Lt. Riddle what seems to be the problem with the communication system at your end. Our diagnose haven’t revealed any problems, so far.
30th Oct 2007, 7:35 PM
*Sickbay, Ship's Counselor's Office*
Counsellor D'ar enters her office and sits behind her desk. She must add some homey touches to the cold, somewhat sterile decor. This must be a place where the crew could feel at ease, could feel free to let down their guard and relate their thoughts and feelings to her. She picks up her PADD and starts skimming the crew records. She comes across one of particular interest, flagged for her attention, a Lt. Commander Tara sh’Raazh. She reviews the official records of this crew member. Lt. Comm. sh'Raazh has been mandated to meet with the ship's counsellor as a condition of her assignment. D'ar makes a note to contact Lt. Comm. sh'Raazh once the ship is underway and make sure regular appointments are set up.
She continues reviewing records as the ship's crew prepares to depart.
30th Oct 2007, 8:38 PM
Name and rank: petty officer Jerrod Tigan
Species/Homeworld: ½ Trill, ¼ Bajoran, and ¼ Romulan born on Promethea but spent most of his life on Trill
Position: Engineer, specialty: bio-engineering
A brief sentence or two describing your personality: Jerrod is an adventure seeker. Before he enlisted in Star Fleet, he worked on the cargo ship Boudica. His hobbies include archaeology, rock-climbing and martial arts.
30th Oct 2007, 10:23 PM
Patton acknowledges Lt. Janeway's entrance.
Capt. Patton: That's quite all right, Lieutanant Janway. We're not ready to leave just yet. Please take your station. to Commander Bijaj What's the status of our missing crewmembers, Commander?
30th Oct 2007, 10:34 PM
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh enters the bridge. She sees the captain talking to her XO, a Klingon woman. Lt. cmdr sh'Raazh decides not to interrupt, just yet, and mans her station. Working under a Klingon XO, this must be somebodies idea of a joke at Star Fleet. Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh just knows she and the Klingon woman are going to butt heads at one point or another.
((OOC: please don't think I am insulting Lt. Commander Bijaj, but a temperamental Klingon and a very temperamental Andorian is bound the stir up some problems. The joke is of course sh'Raazh perception that this is part of her punishment.))
30th Oct 2007, 10:52 PM
Before Commander Bijaj can answer, the Bridge turbolift doors open to reveal a Andorian woman. Patton notes she is ranked Lt. Commander.
Capt. Patton: Lieutanant? smiles You must be one of our missing officers. Please state your name and assignment, if you don't mind.
30th Oct 2007, 10:59 PM
(((motom79 - no insult taken. If you'll notice, Col. Bijaj has "interpersonal" problems with a lot of the crew!!!)))
Col. Bijaj: Sir, all have boarded. The last few stragglers are on their way to their stations now. We shall be full prepared for departure within the hour. We await your command.
Col. Bijaj looks imperiously at those who are "straggling" in.
Col. Bijaj: Take your posts, crewmen.
30th Oct 2007, 10:59 PM
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh looks up form her consul and takes a formal position.
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh: Lt. Cmdr. sh'Raazh reporting for duty ma'am. I am assigned to navigation and ops.
Her antenna's twitch nervously, betraying her anxious state of mind.
30th Oct 2007, 11:05 PM
Capt. Patton: Thank you, Lieutenant. Please return to your station. to everyone Now all that's missing is our Helm Officer...
30th Oct 2007, 11:07 PM
Name and Rank: Lt. Richard Kimble
Position: Helm Officer
A brief sentence or two describing your personality: Laidback is the best term to describe Richie. He enjoyes various sports and a good evening at the bar with a lady-friend. Richie managed to squeak by in the Academy due to his father's influence, a Federation Ambassador. That is also how he managed to get assigned to the Maverick.
30th Oct 2007, 11:16 PM
*Transporter Room 5*
Lt. Kimble beamed aboard from the station at the last possible second. His uniform was less that Starfleet protocal (unzipped tunic and crooked comm. badge) and his knapsack slung over his shoulder. Once he materilized on the transporter pad, Richie gave a charming grin to Petty Officer Syldra Vado.
Lt. Kimble: Thank you, miss. Much appriciated. grins even wider, then leaves for the turbolift
Lt. Kimble: The Bridge, if you don't mind...
Computer: beep; the turbolift starts
Capt. Patton: Hold off, Commander. We're still waiting on--
The turbolift doors open again and Lt. Kimble strides out.
Lt. Kimble: Lt. Richard Kimble, reporting for Helm duty. Hope I didn't miss too much... sits at his station and places his bag on the floor beside the console
30th Oct 2007, 11:22 PM
Col. Bijaj sees the Helm Officer take his position. She looks disapprovingly at his somewhat unkempt appearance. She would have to reprimand about his appearance. Looking around and being satisfied that all is in order...
Col. Bijaj: Captain, crew is at stations and ready to depart. Your orders, sir?
30th Oct 2007, 11:28 PM
Capt. Patton: to Lt. Kimble Actually, Mr. Kimble, you almost missed our depature. Take your station and, if you don't mind... Straighen yourself up.
Patton turns back to the viewscreen.
Capt. Patton: Lieutenant Janeway, inform Starbase 257 that we are ready to depart. Lieutenant sh'Raazh... Take us out.
Lt. sh'Raazh nods and sets the course away from the starbase. Patton can't help the small smile that appears on her face. This was the moment she had waited for since starting at Starfleet Academy.
Capt. Patton: Set course for the Neutral Zone. to everyone Congratulations, crew. Our mission has finally begun...
30th Oct 2007, 11:35 PM
Petty officer Tigan chuckles when he sees the Lt. responsible for the helm storming in on the bridge, looking like he just got out of bed. When he sees the look of disapproval from Col. Bijaj and hears the captains reprimand, he quickly straightens his face. It would be a bad idea to get on the captains and XO's bad side. And let's not forget Lt. Woods. The chief has trusted him to be responsible for the engineering station on the bridge, instead of a commissioned officer. He wouldn't betray his trust be unprofessional conduct.
Lt. Cmdr. sh'Raash: course laid in baring zero mark seven
30th Oct 2007, 11:54 PM
Richie frowns at the Captain's 'suggestion' but complies all the same. Right about now was when he could curse his dad. The last place Richie wanted to be was en route to the Romulan Neutral Zone. And right during the Intergalatic Volleyball Finals...
Capt. Patton: stands up Right then. Commander Bijaj, you have the Bridge. I'll be in my Ready Room if needed. smiles Try not to have too much fun. departs to her Ready Room
(((OOC: Be Back Later.)))
30th Oct 2007, 11:59 PM
Col. Bijaj takes her seat next to the Captain's chair.
Col. Bijaj: Congratulations on a successful launch, Captain!
She sits back, but does not relax. She would not be at ease until they were well and truly on their way and all was well with the ship..
31st Oct 2007, 12:16 AM
Col. Bijaj stands as the Captain leaves the Bridge.
Col. Bijaj: As you command, Captain.
Col. Bijaj stands at the command station and observes each crew member at his/her station. "Hmm...there are a few here who will need my careful attention!"!
31st Oct 2007, 12:29 AM
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh feels the eyes of cmdr. Bijaj on her back. her hands clench her counsel, she doesn't like the feeling of being scrutinized in such a blatant way. Her antennas start to point towards the XO, just count to ten and stop being so paranoid, she is doing her job just like you. But all the same it would be a lot more comfortable if she just sat down and just stops looking at everybody with that typical Klingon stare.
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh: Our ETA at current speed will be seven hours Ma'am *trying hard to council her growing frustion*
31st Oct 2007, 12:32 AM
*Sickbay, Ship's Counselor's Offce*
Counselor D'ar settles back in her chair. "Well, the ship's underway." She could feel the slight thrumming of the engines in the wall and floors around her. Outside in Sickbay, the beeping of the medical equipment and computers was soothing, almost musical.
"I think I will be happy here," she thought. When she had announced her intention to enter Starfleet after graduation, her family had not been happy. They begged her to maintain the family tradition and stay on Trill to continue the familly's medical clinic. But her shame at not being chosen for joining had driven her to flee and so she applied to Starfleet. Away from Trill, she could rebuild her life without the hindrance of her humiliation and perhaps also make the most of her training. She felt a tentative pride in herself for taking this course of action.
"Well, enough daydreaming. Computer, I would like you to enter the following into my schedule of weekly sessions..."
31st Oct 2007, 1:12 AM
(((OOC: Oops! Sorry and thanks for the heads up!!)))
Col. Bijaj: Fine, Janeway. Report any findings to me immediately!! Thank you, shRaaz. Keep me informed of our progrress.
She tapped her comm badge: "Engineering, report!
She glanced with displeasure at Lt. Kimble. He certainly did not look "ship shape." She decided to make a log entry regarding his appearance. This would have to be taken up at his performance review, if not sooner
31st Oct 2007, 1:29 AM
((OOC: Petty officer Tigan is the engineer assigned to the bridge))
Lt. Woods is busy checking the results of the ship system diagnostic when his personal LCARS begins to beep, he turns his view screen on and sees the face of the first officer.
Lt. Woods: Yes Ma'am how can I be of assistence?
31st Oct 2007, 1:41 AM
She looks admiringly at the strange markings on Lt. Woods' face. These were truly the markings of a warrior. Here was a crewman worthy of this ship!!
Col. Bijaj: Status report, Lt. Woods!
(((OOC: be back later...making dinner!)))
31st Oct 2007, 1:48 AM
Lt. Woods: All systems are working within normal parameters Ma'am. Except for a few minor glitches in the com system, but my team is on it.
Lt. Woods looks at the stern Klingon face looking back at him. He always had the greatest respect for the Klingon ethics and of course their music. Lt Woods makes a mental note whenever he has the time, he should discuss Klingon opera with her.
31st Oct 2007, 2:53 AM
Lennox steps away from his desk to where Ensign Rann is standing.
Lennox Granted... And ensign, I understand your area of expertiese is in exo-psychology. I was wondering is you would be interested in assisting my with some further research of borg nano-technology? I need someone from your area of study.
Riddle: Captain, we are getting some anomalous tetrion readings to our port bow.
31st Oct 2007, 3:06 AM
Ensign Tahlandi: Thank you sir. Well my specialty is actually exo-neuropsychology. but sure I will gladly assist you with your research. If you don't mind me asking why study Borg technology? I read some of the papers by Seven of Nine and Voyagers EMH, but their findings are still somewhat controversial.
31st Oct 2007, 3:11 AM
Lennox I see. I have read the same papers. But I have been doing research on borg technology for nearly ten years now. I think I am almost ready to put it into action, but I can not do it alone. Nanites are the key to the future of medicine. Repairs to sensitive neural tissue before thought impossible will be a reality!
31st Oct 2007, 3:21 AM
Ensign Tahlandi is slightly alarmed by the passion the android doctor displays about his research and wonders why he asked his assistance. Surly there must be better candidates to help him in this line of work. Like all psychologist Tahlandi has a basic scientific understanding of physiology and medical science. Granted he has extensive knowledge about the inner working and anatomy of the brains of most Federation members. And yes it's certainly not unheard of that psychologist work together with doctors on medical research ((OOC: this is actually true, some of the models used in modern medicine are psychological in design)). At the academy he worked with doctors for his brain imaging research. But Tahlandi has no prior experiences in the study of nanoprobes.
Ensign Tahlandi: Doctor, I am not exactly sure what you want me to do?
31st Oct 2007, 3:42 AM
Lennox cocks his head to the side and looks at Rann, his beaming, white blue eyes fixes upon the cardassians face. This was his "computing information" expression.
Lennox: I like you, ensign. You have impressive credentials. Most people in your feild are repulsed by the idea of using borg technology, but I have found that the younger, and less experienced, no offense of course, are often more open minded and eager to try new techniques. I would like you to assist me in analyzing the possibly results of the simulations.
31st Oct 2007, 4:01 AM
Tahlandi is a little taken aback by Lennox comments and even more so by the fact the doctor is impressed by his credentials. Tahlandi starts to blush. Tahlandi looks at the android, it's a little bizarre the way Lennox seems to be appraising him. His expression is almost humanoid and at the same time there is this strange artificial vibe about it. Tahlandi gives Lennox a shy smile, not exactly sure how to respond.
Ensign Tahlandi: Thank you Sir. I don't feel offended, because I am indeed young and inexperienced but I am also a quick study. It would be an honor to assist you. Sir, may I suggest you also find somebody more versed in exo-biology to examine the results, it will certainly enhance our understanding. *smiles weakly hoping he didn't cross the line with his bold suggestion*
31st Oct 2007, 4:22 AM
Lennox: Thank you, ensign.
The android does his best to smile warmly as he heads back to his office.
Lennox: Now unless you have anything else, I apologize but I truly must get this filing done. One would think that they would have designed at least a moderately fast computer by now....
Hi voice trails as he begins his work again. The computers are indeed quite fast, but are frustrating to him none the less because he can nor make it process information as fast as his mind, his processors are capable of. So the nanoseconds it takes for the computer to respond can often seem like an eternity to him. Not to mention how incredibly clumsy and slow has hands can be at times. But he deals with it to the best of his ability.
31st Oct 2007, 4:29 AM
Ensign Tahlandi: No sir, that will be all for now.
Tahlandi leaves sickbay and heads towards the science labs. Well that was certainly an interesting turn of events. Tahlandi playfully taps his fingers on his PADD and watches the flurry of activity surrounding him. His first mission is going to be an exciting one.
((OOC: I am off to bed))
31st Oct 2007, 6:07 AM
*Sickbay, Ship's Counselor's Office*
Counselor D'ar walks around her office, arranging bookshelves and generally preparing for work. Her office looks out into Sickbay through a large paned window. She notes a crew member speaking with Dr. Lennox and scrolls through the crew records on her PADD. She identifies Ensign Tahlandi and reviews his personnel file. She is interested to note that he is also a psychologist. "I'll have to get to know him. After all, he is a colleague."
D'ar strolls out into Sickbay, slowly reviewing the medical equipment available and patient accommodations. As she strolls by, she overhears snippets of conversation between the CMO and the young ensign. "What in the world??" she thinks. "Did I really hear Dr. Lennox talk about questionable, possibly illegal and unethical experiments?" She furtively glances over to the pair and Dr. Lennox turns quickly and catches her gaze. She quickly turns away and returns to her office. Feeling exposed by the large window, she decides to leave Sickbay and heads to her quarters.
31st Oct 2007, 6:27 AM
*Corridors leading from Sickbay to Quarters"
Counselor Threllon D'ar rushed down the corridor towards her quarters. She kept her eyes averted, shyly avoiding interaction with those she passed. Turning a corner near her quarters, she crashed into a crewmate.
Counsellor D'ar: "Oh my, I'm so sorry! How clumsy of me. I should watch where I'm going!"
The handsome young man in glasses also jumped back. She extended her hand.
Counsellor D'ar: Hi! I'm the new ship's counsellor, Threllon D'ar. I think you must be Lt. JG Sharpp. You see, I've reviewed the files of the crew.
She quirked a smile at him, liking him immediately for his shy manner. They shook hands and smiled at each other.
31st Oct 2007, 6:48 AM
Patton settled down in front of her computer console just as it began to beep. Apparently, a Nurse Candice Wyatt had sexually assulted Dr. Lennox during her shift in Sickbay. Lennox had subsequently relieved her of duty for the rest of the shift. The Captain just shook her head; two incidents between crewmember and they have barely left space dock! She scheduled a meeting between her and Nurse Wyatt and left herself a note to go over her personel file beforhand. As a second thought, she also sent a message to Counsler D'ar about the nurse.
Next on the agenda; those assignment approvals from Security. How exicting...
*47 Minutes Later*
Captain Patton was just halfway through the approvals when her comm. badge went off.
Riddle: Captain, we are getting some anomalous tetrion readings to our port bow.
Capt. Patton: tapping badge Thank you, Lieutenant. I'll be right there.
Capt. Patton: entering the Bridge Scan our port. I want to know what's causing those readings, Mister Riddle.
31st Oct 2007, 6:57 AM
Lennox saw that counselor D'ar had been watching him, however briefly. He decides to leave her a message to ask her how things were going and if she needed anything.
Afterwards he decided to check in with the captain in person.
Lennox: Captain, I am pleased to report that sickbay and all medical personnel are now operating at maximum efficiency.
Meanwhile nurse candy led a one of the human crewmen medics into the main office in sickbay where the two begin to kiss and pet one another, quite passionately, as Candy braces herself against the desk.
Lt. T'lei makes a security patrol near engineering. She hears crewmen laughing in the hall and wonders how they developed warp technology so quickly, when the Vulcans, obviously the superior of the species, took so much longer to develop the same technology. "Obviously the only logical answer is that they only managed to develop it with our assistance. She reasoned. "Without us they might have never developed it."
31st Oct 2007, 7:02 AM
Riddle Aye sir! I'm right on it.
After bumping into counselor D'ra, and recovering from his initial embarrassment, he decides to speak to her.
Sharpp: You are the counselor, aren't you?
31st Oct 2007, 7:24 AM
Capt. Patton: to Lennox Thank you for the update, Doctor, but we have a bit of a situation. Helm, increase strength to the shields by thirty percent.
Lt. Kimble: mumbles Aye, Captain...
Capt. Patton: What are you getting, Mister Riddle?
31st Oct 2007, 7:28 AM
Lennox looks at his friend seated at the science station. Riddle turns and looks back at the captain, seeming somewhat dumbfounded.
Riddle: Nothing captain. Absolutely nothing, all of the readings have stopped.
31st Oct 2007, 7:41 AM
Capt. Patton: Strange... Let's err on the side of caution and put the ship into Yellow Alert, just in case. Kimble preses some controls and the Emergency lights turn yellow Lieutenant Riddle, I want a report on anything in the area that could cause such a reading. Scan both the ship and surrounding space and report back to me. to computer Computer, deliver this message to the enire ship.
Computer: beep, Ready For Message.
Capt. Patton: Attention, this is Captain Patton. There has been some anomoulous readings dected. Nothing to worry about, but if you witness anything out of the ordinary, report it immeadetly. That is all.
31st Oct 2007, 8:02 AM
Riddle: Aye captain.
Lt. Riddle begins to run a scan on the area for anything that could cause tetryon readings and has found nothing so far. Nothing that could explain it. "Fascinating." He says to himself, raising an eyebrow.
Lennox returns to his office in sickbay and finds Nurse Candy and medic Smith in a most compromising position. He stands for a moment before they notice his presence and move apart from each other, making efforts to look as innocent as possible, while Lennox stares on, in what could only be described as disbelief. Disbelief of their complete audacity and lack of discretion.
Lennox: *speaking with a strange calm* You will both be reprimanded.
Smith: But sir-
Lennox: You will both return to your own quarters.
Smith: Sir just let me-
Lennox: That is not a request, crewman. Leave now or I will call security.
After the two leave sickbay, the chief medical officer decides to take a break and heads to ten forward. He takes a seat at the bar and orders an extra cold Andorian ale.
31st Oct 2007, 8:24 AM
Smiling at Lt. JG Sharpp,
Counsellor D'ar: Pleased to meet you, Lieutenant.
Suddenly the yellow alert is broadcast over the intercomm.
Counselor D'ar: Pardon me, Lt. Sharpp, I think I'd better return to my station and report to Dr. Lennox. I hope we'll get a chance to talk at more length when things settle down.
She rushes off to Sickbay. On arrival, she finds that Dr. Lennox is not present and breathes a sigh of relief. Checking her PADD, she finds a message from the Captain and one from Dr. Lennox asking her to immediately schedule a session with Nurse Candice Wyatt. "Well, I knew that was coming," she thought. "That nurse is a loose cannon."
Tapping her comm badge, she contacts Nurse Wyatt's quarters but receives no reply.
D'ar: Computer locate Nurse Wyatt for me.
31st Oct 2007, 8:44 AM
*Candy Wyatt's Quarters*
Candy ignores the message from counselor D'ar as she sulks in her room, eating chocolate icecream and wearing a tiny laced gown made from andorian silk. "I will make that android suffer if I get in trouble for this." She vows to herself. "He has no business being here anyway, and no right to interfere with my life!"
31st Oct 2007, 8:51 AM
Following the Captain's yellow alert, Col. Bijaj tapped orders into her duty station contacting Engineering.
Col. Bijaj: Lt. Wood, what is your status? We have a report of tetrion emissions on the port bow. Do you have any operatioinoal abnormalities that would correlate with this finding?
31st Oct 2007, 9:00 AM
*Sickbay, Ship's Counselor's Office*
Counsellor D'ar: Computer, send a message to Ms. Wyatt informing her that I can see her at 10 a.m. Ask her to respond to my message. Also contact Crewman Smith for me.
Well, she thought, so it begins. She looked forward eagerly to getting down to business and practicing her craft. She started to review the personnel files of both Nurse Wyatt and Crewman Smith.
31st Oct 2007, 9:03 AM
*Crewman Smith's Quarters*
Smith: *over com badge* Crewman smith to counselor?
31st Oct 2007, 9:07 AM
Katian served the few remaining patrons after the Yellow Alert sounded. Most officers had returned to their stations. All that remained were civilans and a few ensigns. Kati was wiping down the bar when another officer walked in. Normally she would smile and welcome them, but he was... different. Something about this man wasn't normal.
He sat at the bar and ordered an Andorian Ale, extra cold. Kati went to the replicator to retreve the beverage and passed it to him. She couldn't help but notice the unusal light-blue of his eyes as he looked up at her. The expression on his face told her he was troubled.
Katian: Is something wrong, sir?
31st Oct 2007, 9:14 AM
Lennox looked up at the bartender, a beautiful woman, in the sense that her face was perfectly symmetrical, her eyes were clear as cut glass. She appeared human and was likely no older than thirty. She reminded him of a young woman from the internment camp, a bajoran named Taya. Such a horrific end she and her unborn child met, screaming, blood, terror... he finally realizes that the woman behind the bar had asked him a question.
Lennox: I probably should have returned to sickbay, But I have been working sixty hours straight and I keep asking myself, am I the leader of a medical facility or a school for troubled youths?
31st Oct 2007, 9:21 AM
Patton returned to her place at the center seat.
Capt. Patton: ETA to the Neutral Zone, Navigation?
Kati couldn't help the look of shock on her face when the man, a medical officer obvisouly, said he had worked for 60 hours straight. Was that even possible for anyone, human or otherwise?
Katian: Sixty hours? I'm surprised your not passed out on the floor asleep.
31st Oct 2007, 9:28 AM
Lt. Riddle waits for the navigator to respond to the captain and then reports his findings.
Riddle: Captain, I have found absolutely nothing in the area, on the ship or otherwise, that could have produced the anomalous emissions.
Lennox tilts his head, surprised by this observation, he occasionally forgets that he looks remarkably human.
Lennox: I only require nine hours of rest every three months. My recuperative cycle is designed to resemble sleep, i even have a process that can be described as dreaming. Though I can, if necessary, sleep more than that... You see, I am an android.
31st Oct 2007, 9:38 AM
Capt. Patton: Thank you, Lieutenant, but keep an eye out in case it returns. Some weapons emit tetryon particals, and we don't to run into whoever they belong to...
Kati smiled softly when the medical officer said he was an android. So that was it...
Katian: smiles I thought there was something different about you. extends her hand My name's Katian, but you can call me Kati.
31st Oct 2007, 9:44 AM
Riddle turns back to his station and continues monitoring his controls.
Lennox shakes her hand and smiles.
Lennox: Greetings, Kati. My name is Lennox... you aren't human either, are you?
31st Oct 2007, 10:02 AM
Katian: surprised No, actually. I'm El-Aurian. Not a lot of people notice that right off... Guess I'm just as rare as you are, Lennox. If you don't mind my saying that...
31st Oct 2007, 10:37 AM
Lennox leans forward and studies Katian's face. No, she wasn't human at all. She seemed too perfect, and the more he looked at her, the more she resembled Taya, the elegant hands and soft, cool voice. Too sonically precise to be human. Though most do not notice such voice inconstancies. And her creamy, flawless skin, just like...
Lennox: My Annabell Leigh...
He stopped himself before he recited the entire poem and realized how strange that comment must have sounded.
Lennox:*softly* And if you do not mind me saying, you are the most beautiful woman I have seen in... in years.
31st Oct 2007, 11:15 AM
Kati blushes deeply at Lennox's statement. They had just met and already... And already this connection was starting to take hold. She had never heard someone say something so romantic before. Coming from him it sounded so sincere...
Katian: blushing, softly Oh... Well... Thank you for saying so, Mister Lennox... But how can you say that, and mean it, if we just met?
31st Oct 2007, 11:31 AM
If an android could blush, Lennox would have. He realized how forward that remark must have been. And after Taya's death, he swore to himself that he would never again access that area of his psyche. Besides, such emotional attatchment, such impulses can be so distracting, especially for an ambitious medical student. And suddenly he realized just what a lonely existence he led. And if such things as reincarnation could occure, he would have at that moment sworn that Taya's spirit had been carried over into this Katian. But no, he couldn't allow himself to feel this, he couldn't let this happen, not again. But still, the sudden surge of memories and emotion welled within his consciousness. He could recite sonnets, paint masterpieces in her image, but all he could manage to do was keep his calm, professional appearance.
Lennox: You remind me so much of someone I once... knew.
31st Oct 2007, 11:34 AM
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh: our ETA is five hours and 28 minutes at current speed. *Tara's eyes never leave her station, she has seen this readings before but where?*
Lt. Woods: We are reinforcing the shields around the warpcore, just to be safe Ma'am. We have no operational abnormalities, everything is working within normal parameters. The source of tetrion emissions is coming outside the ship.
*Taps com badge* Petty officer Tigan I am sending the data from engineering to your station.
Petty officer Tigan: Acknowledge Sir.
31st Oct 2007, 11:40 AM
For a moment, Kati sees a flash of regret, maybe even pain, on the Android's face. She wishes that she hadn't said what she did, if she knew it would bring up a painful memory... And yet, curiosity takes over her mouth.
Katian: Oh... Were you... Close? [I]blushes again out of embarassment I'm sorry. I shouldn't be prying into your personel life...
31st Oct 2007, 11:45 AM
Lennox considers for a moment how he should respond to the question, and finally decided to do so with honesty.
Lennox I was... quite in love with her. I had never met such a kind and gentle being. You know, you are the only person in a very long time who has ever bothered to ask about my personal life. I appreciate that....
31st Oct 2007, 11:57 AM
Katian: smiles You're welcome, Lennox. notices his Andorian Ale is empty Um... Can I get you anything else? Another ale?
31st Oct 2007, 12:03 PM
Lennox smiles as he checks his internal chronometer and climbs down off the bar stool.
Lennox: *regretfully* No, I am sorry, I must be bothering you... I am sure you have work to do...
31st Oct 2007, 12:13 PM
Petty officer Tigan is shifting through the engineering reports, while monitoring the warp field. He is a little unnerved by the yellow alert, their mission hasn't even started yet and already trouble is afoot. Meanwhile Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh is desperately raking her brain, why are these readings so familiar? The answer lies at the tip of her tongue, she knows it but still the answer won't come. Suddenly her station bleeps
Computer: course correction laid in.
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh: What I didn't ask for a correction. Computer resume original course.
Computer: course laid in.
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh is unsure what just happened, should she inform the captain or first try and find the problem, she decides the later.
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh: crewman Tigan I need your assistance. Lt. Kimble did you make a course correction?
31st Oct 2007, 12:20 PM
Kati looks around the almost empty lounge. There was now only Lennox, two waiters, and a pair of ensigns playing three dimensional chess. And her shift was almost over... And the fact she didn't want him to leave.
Katian: Not at all. Perhaps you would like some company? Someone to talk to? I play a mean game of chess...
Lt. Kimble: looks over at the sh'Raazh And why exactly would I do that?
The dialoge between the two officers catches the attention of Captain Patton.
Capt. Patton: Course correction? To where? Report, Lieutenant.
31st Oct 2007, 12:43 PM
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh feels her temperament flaring up again but somehow manages to answer the Captain's question, albeit in a strained voice. Just keep your cool, nobody here is out to get you.
Lt.cmdr. sh'Raazh: For an unknown reason the computer corrected our course with a margin of .19 degrees. It would have taken Us about twenty light years of course straight to Promethae, a small Romulan trade colony, Ma'am. I corrected the problem and just asked if Lt. Kimble had adjusted our course*voice rises*. I was just planning to run a diagnostic on my station with he help of crewman Tigan.
Tigan looks at Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh, her anger barely concealed. This Andorian woman really seems to have some serious anger management issues. He silently moves towards the navigation station, keeping a close eye on the body language of the volatile Andorian. Trying hard not be noticed he starts scanning Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh station. His scanner picks up some strange anomalies readings form inside the station. It looks like something is planted inside the station. Tigan wonders why previous diagnoses didn't pick this up.
Petty officer Tigan: Captain, your permission to open Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh station. I think I have fond the problem.
((OOC: I not exactly sure what Tigan is going to find, suggestions/idea's are always welcome.))
31st Oct 2007, 5:32 PM
*Sickbay, Ship's Counselor's Office*
D'ar's comm badge beeps. She taps it.
Counselor D'ar: Counselor D'ar here. Oh, yes, Crewman Smith. Thank you for answering me so promptly. I have received requests from the Captain and Dr. Lennox to meet with you at your earliest convenience. Can we set up an appointment as soon as possible?
A young man taps at her open office door. She rises to meet him. Her unusually excellent memory for faces and information comes to her assistance.
Counselor D'ar: Lt. Janeway, I believe? Please, come in and have a seat.
She shakes his hand.
Counselor D'ar: It is a pleasure to meet you, Lieutenant. How may I help you?
31st Oct 2007, 5:51 PM
Col.. Bijaj notes that sh'Rhaaz is losing control of her temper. She walks over to the Andorian casually and stares at her coldly. She speaks to her quetly.
Col. Bijaj: Please control yourself, madam. You have acted appropriately but you must control your reactions to unexpected circumstances and demands.
(((OOC: Maybe Tigan finds some kind of spyware or "bug" which would track the course of the nav computer???)))
31st Oct 2007, 6:38 PM
(((Would like to join...is it too late now that you've left spacedock))) :einstein
31st Oct 2007, 6:47 PM
*Sickbay, Ship's Counselor's Office*
D'ar looks at Lt. Janeway appraisingly. She was well aware, as one everyone on board, that he was related to the legendary Catherine Janeway. However, she must remember to deal with him as an individual with his own specific needs and life view. She was also well aware of the burden placed on the more "ordinary" relatives of celebrities.
Counselor D'ar: Well, I'm glad you came to see me. I'm in the process of setting up my schedule and think we should plan regular visits for you for a while. Are you open to hypnosis therapy? I think that's a good first approach to dealing with your troubling dreams. And as for the obsessive compulsive component, we may have to consider pharmacotherapy. Now, why don't you have a seat and we can set up your arrangements.....
31st Oct 2007, 7:49 PM
*Sickbay, Ship's Counselor's Office*
Lt. Janeway: Of course Im open to hypnosis however I have a degree in pharmocology and im yet to locate a single thing that can calm my OCD without slowing my reaction time. Which is unfortunately not the best thing for a tactical officer.
Counselor D'ar: Well, let's see if we can work on some behavioral modification therapy for your OCD symptoms then. I'm sure we can find some modules which are acceptable to you and which will not interfere with your ship's duties. Now, let's set up a schedule. Since these dream flashes seem to be bothering you to an uncomfortable extent, can we set up a 3xweek schedule to start investigating them with hypnosis? What would fit into your work schedule??
31st Oct 2007, 9:52 PM
Col. Bijaj taps her foot impatiently as the klaxxonx sounds throughout the ship. "Computer, locate Lt. Janeway." A comm link to the Lt. opens.
Col. Bijaj: Janeway, where are you? Report to the Bridge immediately! We are on yellow alert and need the assistance of our tactical officer!
31st Oct 2007, 10:30 PM
Bijaj turns to face Janeway and catches sight the smirk playing on his lips..
Col Bijaj: Well, sir. Your report? What were your findings in the cargo hold? Please review the findings on the tetrion emission we have discovered and bring yourself up to speed!
Bijaj looks steadily at Janeway, forcing him to look down. "I must suppress the insubordinate attitude which seems to prevail on this P'tak human vessel," she thinks to herself grimly.
31st Oct 2007, 11:23 PM
Riddle monitors the the science station while directing his sensitive hearing to the rest of the bridge. Being half Vulcan definately has it advantages. The andorian officer seems to be loosing her faculties while he can literally hear that damned Klingon growling under her breath.
He was nervous about their upcoming mission and a part of him almost wanted to run and hide. It had been years since he had been to Romulas. It was the same summer that his twin, Anastasia, was abducted. He had gone to stay with his grandmother.
He wondered what everyone would think if they knew the truth. That he was actually one fourth Romulan, half Vulcan, and one fourth Human. He was certain that the first officer would have his head on a platter. Even though he considered himself a Vulcan/Human hybrid more than anything. Still, he had to acknowledge his background, even if not to anyone else. He had never told anyone the truth, nor did he ever plan to.
So he continues to monitor his station, lights flash and controls beep. Everything is calm, everything is normal
Lennox smiles at Katian, quite pleased that she asked. He offered her his hand like some kind of eighteenth century southern gentleman. Despite everything he had lived through in his life, he managed to keep his almost too polite manners.
Lennox: I would like that very much, Katian.
31st Oct 2007, 11:31 PM
OOC: To all the new people. It is possible that you guys would have been on the ship the hole time without ever being mentioned before. Luckily this is a Galaxy class ship and there are a LOT of people on board, so there is always room for new people to show up.
31st Oct 2007, 11:40 PM
(((OOC: Is there a Holodeck on this ship?)))
31st Oct 2007, 11:41 PM
OOC: yes there is.
31st Oct 2007, 11:49 PM
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh nods at Col. Bijaj, she knows that the XO is right. But all the same she still feels undirected anger towards this situation. She looks at crewman Tigan who is buzzy opening the panel of her station. The look on his face is not very calming, the man simply looks dumbfounded.
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh: what's wrong?
Petty officer Tigan: I'm not sure ma'am *taps combadge* Tigan to engineering I need some assistance on the bridge, I have found an unknown component in the navigation area.
Lt. Woods: acknowledged
Lt. Woods walks towards Lt Yelena Ivanova.
Lt. Woods: Lt. Ivanova would you care to join me too the bridge for an inspection of the navigation station.
((OOC: good idea edejan))
31st Oct 2007, 11:57 PM
"Janeway: I reviewed the findings on the emission on my way over and have covered the black spots in the cargo bay commander.""
Bijaj turns her back on him abruptly. "Treat him with disrespect. He is without honor," she thinks.
Col. Bijaj: Fine. Then take your station. Tigan, what are your findings in the console?
Col. Bijaj also notices the look of consternation of S'Raazh's face. She wondered what was troubling the Andorian. Altho' a "hothead" according to her personnel file, there was no doubt that Sh'Raazh was an intelligent and perceptive officer. Had she noticed anything unusual?
Col. Bijaj: Well, Janeway, any ideas?
1st Nov 2007, 12:08 AM
Petty officer Tigan: I have called in the assistance of the Chief, I am not sure at this the moment Ma'am.
Tigan finds the first officer a little intimidating and form what he has seen she has little or no patience. He hopes he didn't bring her wrath down upon him
Lt.cmdr. sh'Raazh: *abruptly and very rude* Let me have a look nitwit. *under her breath* Incompetent fool. *pushes him out of the way.*
Tigan is shocked and affronted by sh'Raazh behavior, some Star fleet officer seem to think the world revolts around them. Tigan bites back a remark that surely would have resulted in him being thrown of the Bridge.
1st Nov 2007, 12:13 AM
*Sickbay, Ship's Counsellor's Office*
Threllon D'ar reviewed her schedule. It was already filling up. Nurse Candace Wyatt had not responded regarding her mandated 10 a.m. appointment tomorrow. She would have to report this to Dr. Lennox. Lt. Smith seemed like a personabe young man. Probably just caught up in the wake of Nurse Wyatt's libido. Well, he would have to deal with the consequences of his actions. A reprimand was likely but Dr. Lennox and the Captain would probably rely on the Counsellor's report to make the final decision on that. There was no doubt Candace Wyatt would receive a reprimand, tho'.
Counsellor D'ar: Computer, send a message to Lt. Commander Tara sh’Raazh's inbox. We need to set up her sessions also."
"I need to lock this in as soon as possible per the conditions of her assignment to the Maverick," she thought.
"Well, the yellow alert seems to be over. It's time to head back to my quarters for some replicated dinner. Perhaps I'll go to 10-Forward afterwards and meet some of my crewmates." She closed her office door and left Sickbay.
1st Nov 2007, 12:16 AM
Col. Bijaj notes the actions of Lt.Cmdr. sh'Raazh with amusement. "Finally a deck officer with some spirit!!" she thinks. "She has no patience with incompetence...I think we'll get along fine!"
1st Nov 2007, 12:19 AM
Patton rose from her chair and walked to the Navigational console.
Capt. Patton: I want answers, people! I want to know who's trying to sabatoge our mission. to Tigan What do you know so far, Officer?
1st Nov 2007, 12:20 AM
Lt. Woods smiles at the young Lt., ah to be young and eager.
Lt. Woods: *while walking towards the turbolift* You worked on Utopia Planitia before you were assigned to the Maverick, right?
1st Nov 2007, 12:30 AM
Capt. Patton: angrily Lieutenant Janeway! I will not have one of my officers talking down to their Commander! We must work together to figure this mystery out. Is that clear?
1st Nov 2007, 12:33 AM
Petty officer Tigan: It looks like some kind of tracking device but ...
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh: This incompetent fool doesn't know what he is talking about, the only thing he managed to do is to destroy my station.
Tigan's head goes beet red, even his spots turn a deeper shade of brown, he looks at the captain and then at sh'Raazh. He gulps and starts over again, ignoring sh'Raazh completly.
Petty Officer Tigan: As i was saying, it looks like some sort of tracking device, but I don't recognize the design. It isn't Star Fleet and is almost undetectable on scanners. That's why I called in engineering to get to the bottom of this *gives sh'Raazh a dirty look*
1st Nov 2007, 12:37 AM
Capt. Patton: Lieutenant Commander sh'Raazh! You will show respect to your fellow officers, or I will call Security and have them escort you to the Brig! looks at the various officers That goes for everyone! to Tigan, sighs Thank you, Petty Officer. to Janeway You know what I mean, Lieutenant. I expect everyone on this Bridge to be respectful.
1st Nov 2007, 12:38 AM
Riddle snickers as he overhears the conflict between the security chief and first officer. It seems that hes not the only one who doesn't get along with the Klingon. They had a truly disturbing and violent culture, he wondered why the federation had anything to do with them at all.
1st Nov 2007, 12:47 AM
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh: Yes ma'am
At that moment Lt. Woods and Lt. Ivanova enter the Bridge chatting amicable. Lt. Woods is impressed by her work on the Prometheus-class star ship. In the short time it took to get to the bridge they discussed among other things the pro's and con's of the Prometheus-class warp engine design.
Lt. Woods: *addressing the captain* What seems to be the problem with the navigation center, Ma'am?
1st Nov 2007, 12:52 AM
Capt. Patton: Lieutenant sh'Raazh reported that the computer made an unaurthorized corse correction. Petty Officer Tigan scanned the console and found what appears to be a tracking device installed in the Navigation console that doesn't appear to be Starfleet technology. I want it out of there and investigated to the fullest, Lieutenant. to Janeway Go ahead, but I want you back here to investigate who could have done this.
1st Nov 2007, 1:01 AM
Lt. Woods: Understood ma'am *nods to Lt. Ivanova* Lt. you heard the Captain let's get to work. Petty officer Tigan please report your findings.
Petty officer Tigan: Like the captain said it seems to be some sort of alien tracking device. Although some readings suggest brainwave patrons.
Lt. Woods: What? Are you sure Petty officer Tigan *he looks at Lt Ivanova as he takes Tigans scanner* What do you make of all this Lt?

Lt. Woods: Good pick up Lt. *notices the captains worries* That's distinct possibility, Captain. With your permission I would like to isolate the navigation counsel form the other ship systems while we remove the devise. Just to be sure it won't infect or damage other critical systems.
((OOC: lovely a mysteries passenger))
1st Nov 2007, 1:59 AM
Capt. Patton: Permission granted, Lieutenant. Helm, bring us to a full stop and inform Starbase 257 of the situation.
Lt. Kimble: Aye, ma'am. brings the ship to full stop and sends the message
1st Nov 2007, 2:03 AM
Lennox moves a piece on the game board and waits for Katian to take her turn.
Lennox I am chief medical officer of this vessel... apparently starfleet thought that I was worthy of the position. But i am beginning to think otherwise. It seems that the majority of the staff I selected are completely incompetent. I absolutely do know how they will react in a real emergency, if we can even count on them at all....
Lennox stopped himself, this was not appropriate behavior for the chief medical officer. Still, he felt a connection to Katian, and that he could actually be honest with her. But he must remember how important it is to maintain a professional image. Perfection, perfection was what he had striven for.
But is perfection worth anything is you lead a life of isolation, never reaching out to anyone? He had been connected before and it ended in what could only amount to excruciating pain. Far surpassing anything he had experienced at the hands of the cardassians. What a cruel joke it was, being capable of feeling pain, both physical and psychological. Being dismantled, dismembered alive.... testing the limits of his pain thresholds. But no physical pain might amount to the death of Taya, and all he remembers is her laying dead on the ground, his own hands covered in blood...
Lennox: *smiles sweetly* What about you, do you run the mess hall?
1st Nov 2007, 2:10 AM
Katian: Kind of... My official title is 'Lounge Hostess.' My job is basically to serve drinks and act as a morale officer and unofficial counsler. looks at the board and makes her move There are things people will tell their bartender that they won't tell their doctor. laughs softly No offense, Doctor.
1st Nov 2007, 2:14 AM
Lt. Woods: You heard the captain, Lt. Ivanova P.O Tigan let's get started. Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh, ma'am would you like to assist me and my crew.
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh: gladly
Lt. Woods: Engineering isolated the navigation system
Lt. Woods and his team start to work to remove the unknown device
1st Nov 2007, 2:15 AM
Riddle presses a panel at his station and it doesn't respond. He tries again and then tries another panel. Nothing is responding, no matter what he tries.
Riddle: Captain, my station is not responding.
Sharpp does reutine research, analyzing tissue samples and lab results from several crew phsyicals.
Sharpp: Computer, pull up the files of crewman Dossik, Sierra.
*Computer* Unknown command, can not comply.
Sharpp Computer, explain.
*Computer* Unknown command, can not comply.
At that moment, a crewman walks over to sharpp.
Crewman: Sir, none of the computers in the lab are responding.
Sharpp taps his com badge. *Sharpp to Lt. Riddle, none of the computers in the science lab are responding.[/I]
1st Nov 2007, 2:19 AM
Lennox: Quite correct, perhaps we should switch jobs some time. Or perhaps I should start serving alcoholic beverages to all of my patients... You are quite good at this game, I always prefered Kal-toh to chess, however.
1st Nov 2007, 2:26 AM
(((OOC: Good night!)))
Capt. Patton: to Riddle What? How can that be?
Lt. Kimble: Mine's not working either. presses various controls Dammit, nothing's responding!
Capt. Patton: Language, Mister Kimble...
Kati laughed harder at Lennox's suggestion they trade jobs.
Katian: Sure, but you'll have to show me how the dianostic computers work first. moves another piece and jumps Lennox's pawn You're a kal-toh player, huh? I'm afraid I don't have enough experience with that game to be much competition... watches Lennox's next moves, then takes her turn
1st Nov 2007, 2:32 AM
*Counselor D'ar's Quarters*
Finishing her replicated dinner, Counselor D'ar tries to decide what to do with her off-time. "Well, guess I will go to 10-Forward and start meeting some of the crew."
She walks out and heads toward 10-Forward. She notices a change in the rhythm of the ship and wonders what is going on. The klaxxon yellow alert signal had stopped a while ago but there was still an air of nervous anticipation in the expressions of the crew she passed.
Entering 10-Forward, she looks around. The place was fairly busy. She noted that Kati was off-duty and sitting over in corner with Dr. Lennox. She walked up to the bartender on duty and asked for a snythehol Pina Colada. Turning to the young woman sitting on the next barstool, she introduces herself. The young lady responds;
Janice: "Hi! I'm Janice Lancaster. I'm a ship's nurse."
Counsellor D'ar: "What a coincidence. I work in Sickbay too. I'm the Ship' Counsellor. Have you met Dr. Lennox yet? That's him sitting over there." She nods her head toward Dr. Lennox and Kati. "And that's the chief bartender with him, Katian.
Janice: (giggling) I wonder what they're talking about. They look kind of sweet together.
D'ar: Well, he's an android, so I'm not sure he can "look sweet."
Janice (somewhat shocked): What do you mean? I didn't know Dr. Lennox was not human! It should be an interesting experience working with him!!"
D'ar (smiling): I think so too...
1st Nov 2007, 2:39 AM
Ensign Tahlandi is busy working on his paper for the Federation Psychology Association (FPA), when all of a sudden his screen goes blank. Tahlandi looks around and sees Lt. Sharpp and a crewman talking panicky about the fact all computers in the lab have gone death. Tahlandi stands up and walks towards Lt. Sharpp.
Ensign Tahlandi : Sir, what's going on?
Lt. Woods: I have read his findings but I thought his hypotheses were largely discredited ...
Lt. Woods loses his train of thought when all of a sudden ship systems seem to be taken out one by one. At that precise moment Tigan and sh'Raazh are trying to remove the alien device.
Petty officer Tigan : Argh my hand *an electric pulse burns Tigan's hand.*
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh: This is it *takes a phaser and carefully blasts the device to smithereens.* I am sorry but this was the only way to remove it. *scans her station* It released some computer virus in our system, we need to reboot every system on the ship.
Lt. Woods: Thank you ma'am *taps combadge* Sickbay to bridge please respond. Engineering start purging the computer system
1st Nov 2007, 2:55 AM
Counsellor D'ar and Janice are chatting amiably, when D'ar turns to the bartender and orders another snythehol Pina Colada. The bartender smiles and walks over to the replicator. "One Pina Colada, please." The replicator does not respond. She repeats again, "One Pina Colada, please." Still, there is no response from the replicator. She looks around in confusion.
1st Nov 2007, 2:56 AM
One by one, Lennox's pieces were vanishing from the game board and he couldn't care less. He was happier right now than he had been in the past eighteen years. He couldn't stop staring at Katian, the way she moved and he skin reflected the light. And there was almost a tinge of joy and life to his own pale skin and hollow eyes.
Lennox: And neither the angels in heaven above, nor the demons down under the sea can ever dissever my soul from the soul of the beautiful Annabel Leigh... Katian? *takes her hand* You must truly be wise beyond all in this quadrant, and expidentially more graceful. Would you allow me to do something for you, make a meal perhaps, someone like you should not be serving others constantly.... I just have been overcome with the urge to make you happy.
Riddle tries, in vain to get his station to function, when a man appears in the center of the bridge in a sudden flash of light.
He is rather tall and pale with piercing dark blue eyes, black hair, and a pointed black goatee. His clothes look like something out of late ninteenth century earth, dark blue to match his eyes. He raises a hand in the air and grins. "Hello humanoids! A lovely day, isn't it? You might be having some problems with your controls, I did that, but not to worry, it is for your own safety!"
1st Nov 2007, 2:58 AM
Sharpp: I... I honestly w-wish I could tell you, ensign.
1st Nov 2007, 3:01 AM
A flicker of light shimers in the center of the room. A balding human in a medical Starfleet uniform and medi-kit appears, a serious look on his face.
EMH: Please state the nature of the medical emergency.
Capt. Patton: motions to Tigan This Officer has sustained a electrical burn to his hand.
The EMH moves to Tigan's side and begins to scan the injury with a medical tricorder.
EMH: And how was the burn sustained? he presses some controls on the tricorder Hmmm, these energy readings are very strange... What were you doing, Officer?
Another flash of light; a strange man in blue apprears where the EMH once was.
Capt. Patton: Who the hell are you? And what do you mean for our own safety?
Kati was surprised when Lennox took her hand and told her he wanted to make her happy. She could only smile.
Katian: Oh, Lennox... I honestly don't know what to say...
A flash of white light appears next to their table.
Quenten: You could tell him your spoken for, Kati.
Katian: startled Q?!
1st Nov 2007, 3:08 AM
The stranger scoffs at the hologram. "Who invited HIM here?"
1st Nov 2007, 3:08 AM
Commander Jason Riajh pulled on his dress uniform jacket. He looked at himself in the mirror adjusting his rank pips just so, and turned around to make sure his uniform was perfect.
Before leaving his rather luxurious accommodations, he reviewed certain information on his personal PADD, one much smaller and easier to conceal than the standard issue. He rubbed his chin thoughtfully, shut off the small portable device and placed it carefully in an inside pocket.
Leaving his quarters, he strolled casually to 10-Forward. He pressed the pad and the door swooshed open. As he walked in, it started to close behind and stopped midway. He turned around noting this anomaly. He then turned back to the room and noticed the confused expression on the bartender's face. Walking back into the corridor, he tapped his comm badge and quietly said. "I'm on board. What's going on?"
1st Nov 2007, 3:09 AM
Petty officer Tigan: I was trying to remove an alien device form the navigation counsel.
Before the EMH has time to respond an unknown man appears on the bridge, claiming he is responsible for recent events
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh : Who the hell are you? How dare you hijack this ship!
1st Nov 2007, 3:12 AM
He jumps back a moment with an all too stereotypical 'innocent' expression on his face. "Hijack! I did no such thing! But if you absolutely MUST know, I am Q. You might have heard of some of my colleagues in your past."
1st Nov 2007, 3:13 AM
Col. Bijaj: Security Chief! Intruder alert! Security to the bridge!! "Q" We know the devilment you and your kind have caused!! The continuum has no place here!
Col. Bijaj drew her own weapon, an ancient disruptor, but still serviceable. She never went anywhere without her disruptor.
1st Nov 2007, 3:14 AM
EMH: No one 'invited' me anywhere. I was called to a medical emergency.
Capt. Patton: angrily You're Q? What do you want with my ship? sees Commander Bijaj pull out a disruptor Commander, put that weapon away. walks towards Q Yes, I'm well aware of your 'collegues' appearences on the Enterprise and Voyager, but what brings you here?
1st Nov 2007, 3:17 AM
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh: And lets not forget, captain that one of his colleagues was so kind to introduce us to Borg. We really can't thank his people enough for that one *highly sarcastic*
1st Nov 2007, 3:22 AM
Q: Of course I'm Q! Who do I look like, Queen Atria of Zendar! And must that overgrown ball of light be so talkative?
Q snaps his fingers and turns the EMH into a holograph of tribble.
Q: Now, I am looking for a Q whom you were all stupid enough to let stow away on your ship. Hand him over and everyone will keep their molecular integrity.
Riddle sits back and watches the display, trying desperately to think of some way to improve the situation.
Riddle: If you are a Q, why do you need us to find your lost comrade? You are supposed to omnipotent, aren't you?
Q snaps his fingers again, and from everything Riddle can tell, his larynx was completely missing! He could not produce any vocalization of any kind at all, no matter how hard he tried.
Q: Must you corporeal beings be so skeptical?
1st Nov 2007, 3:29 AM
Name and Rank: Q. No, just Q... Oh, all right! If you mortals must, you can call me Quinten. And I'm not "officially" a Federation member. At least I don't pay taxes...
Age: Not sure... I stopped counting a few miliennea ago...
Species/Homeworld: Q/ Q Continuum
Position: If I had to choose... Captain. Then again I'm not in Starfleet, am I?
A brief sentence or two describing your personality: Geez, how many more times must I tell you! I am a Q! I'm omnipotent, immortal, and if I may say so, I have a wonderful sense of humor. Not to brag, but I also have possess the ability of instantaneous matter-energy transformation and teleportation, as well as the ability of time travel, and control over space, matter, and time. My I.Q. goes lightyears beyond your primative measurments, but let us just say it's around 2005, for you mortal's sakes. Don't want to fry your brains so soon after meeting, after all. I also have a bit of an infatuation with a certain El-Aurian member of your crew. Don't bother guessing who, since there are only forty-six in this part of the galaxy and there's only one aboard.
Gee. That's a bit of a toughie, actually...
Yes, that was sarcasam.
... Well, that wasn't exactly brief, now was it?
Maybe I should stop now...
... Or not...
1st Nov 2007, 3:30 AM
*Corridors Outside 10-Forward*
Commander Jason Riajh speaks quietly into his comm badge then quickly walks down the corridor returning to his quarters. He taps some commands his is small PADD. The door to his quarters opened and he went inside. He tapped a few more commands and the door slid closed behind him.
1st Nov 2007, 3:35 AM
Patton watches with controled shock as the Q sliences Riddle and transforms the EMH into a tribble, who was now trilling angrilly on the floor. Lt. Kimble was trying and failing to contain a bout of laughter from his station.
Capt. Patton: I have no idea what you're talking about. No Starfleet captain would be foolish enough to let a Q hide on their ship. Now return my crew to normal and get lost!
Quinten: sadly Oh, Kati... Don't tell me you're falling for this... This overgrown toaster! I can provide you with so much more than it can!
Katian: stands up Q, what are you doing here?
1st Nov 2007, 3:41 AM
((OOC: well it's getting late for me so good night))
1st Nov 2007, 3:41 AM
Q: Patience is a virtue, captain. Now tell me where Q is and I will return you pet vulcan and holographic janitor to their original states.
Lennox looks up in shock, did she just say Q? He stands up immediately, with a calmly furious expression.
Lennox: A Q? What in the universe is a Q doing here?
1st Nov 2007, 4:05 AM
(((OOC: Good night, motom!)))
Capt. Patton sighs angrily I wasn't even aware there was a Q on board... And Mister Riddle was right; you're omnipotent, you find him.
Quinten: Whatever I want, Robo-Boy, so butt out of our conversation! snaps fingers, he and Katian dissappeard
1st Nov 2007, 4:13 AM
Q: Ugh! Pathetic human, your tiny mind wouldn't even begin to comprehend my reasons for needing your assistance. And how could you not know a Q was on board, are you really THAT dim? In that case, I will be right back.
Q snaps his fingers and disappears suddenly.
Lennox is stunned momentarily before he instinctively hits his com badge.
Lennox: Lennox to the bridge.... Lennox to security... Lennox to anyone!

1st Nov 2007, 5:24 AM
The following is a transcript of Captain Patton's Log Entry:
After leaving space dock from Starbase 257, we began our mission to the Romulan Neutral Zone at 1330 hours. Unfortunetly, we've been hindered by a series of unusual events:
My new First Officer, Commander Bijaj, was involved in an altercation with the CSO, Lieutenant Alex Riddle. Then a report was filed by Doctor Lennox that Nurse Candice Wyatt in Sickbay sexually assaulted him. I subsenquently sent the report to our ship's counslor, Doctor Threllon D'ar, for her to speak with the Nurse. I would be lying if I said these incidents didn't trouble me...
Within a hour of our departure, Lieutenant Riddle dected random tetryon partical emissions from our port bow, only to have them vanish moments later. The ship was put on Yellow Alert to be cautionary and a scan of the surrounding space was performed. The results showed there was nothing to cause the tetryon particles.
Moments after, Lieutenant Commander sh'Raazh reported that the computer made an unauthorized corse correction that would have taken us off course twenty lightyears. Petty Officer Tigan examined the console and discovered a tracking device of unknown origin installed into the Navigation console. Chief Engineer Lieutenant Joshua Woods and Lieutenant Juinor Grade Yelena Ivanova were called to the Bridge to examine the device. Ivanova theorized that the device may not be transmitting, but recieving an unknown signal. Lieutenant Woods attempted removing the device, which caused many of the ship's systems offline and injured Tigan in the process.
And that's when the Q showed up. He came aboard taking responsibilty for the computer malfunctions, commenting it was 'for our own saftey.' He then demanded that we turn over another Q that the first one was searching for. No one aboard was aware of the presence of the second entity, but that didn't satisfy the first. Out of what I consider retrubution, he removed Lieutenant Riddle's ability to speak and transformed our Emergency Medical Hologram into... a tribble. The Q has since dissappeared, but I'm sure he'll be back...
1st Nov 2007, 6:09 AM
(((OOC: Good night!)))
The Q's departure was just as sudden as his arrival. Patton didn't waste any time.
Capt. Patton Red Alert! Scan the ship for any traces of either Q, get Medical teams in here for Tigan and Riddle... looks at the EMH tribble ... And an Engineering team. I want answers people!
Another flash, Kati and Quinten appeared in the middle of Kati's bedroom, both on the bed.
Quinten: Ah! That's better! Much more... Private. grins What do you think, sweetheart?
Katian: disgusted, gets up What do your think you're doing, Q?!
Quinten: I just came to visit my favorite female mortal, that's all. pouts You're not happy to see me?
Katian: No... Well... Sort of... I don't know! sighs I thought the Continuum decided we couldn't be together...
Quinten: They did, but who says True Love wasn't meant to be? stands, takes Kati's hand I missed you, Katian. I really have. And to hell with what the others think!
Katian: That was a long time ago, Q, and I--
Quinten: A long time?! scoffs I'd hardly consider fifty years a long time. More like a blink of an eye...
Katian: For you maybe, but for me it was. And... I've gotten over it...
Quinten: disbelieving Oh, come on, Kati! You can't be serious!
Katian: I am, Q... I'm sorry...
Quinten: pauses, softly No... I am... sits on the bed I should have tried harder to fight the Continuum. I should have known better that just be a good little Q and listen to them... I shouldn't have let them take you away from me...
Katian: sits down beside Quinten It's not your fault, Q... You and I both know it wouldn't have worked out...
Quinten: looks at Kati I think... No, I know it would have. And I'm going to prove it to you! gives Kati a quick kiss Be back soon, love! dissappears in a flash of light
Katian: Q! stands Don't do this! whisperes Oh, no...
1st Nov 2007, 6:32 AM
Riddle and the others follow two medics to sickbay. He wishes he could tell them how unnecessary this was, that he could still function on the bridge until if and when his vocal abilities were returned. But since to his knowledge, no one on the bridge including himself, was fluent in sign language, and his telepathic abilities were dubious at best, he had no choice but to continue moving to sickbay.
In the wake of Katian's sudden absence, Lennox returned to sickbay and made a feeble attempt to contact security with the incident. However, the communication systems were now in shambles, and he was greeted by medics leading several members of the bridge crew into sickbay, including Alex Riddle.
Lennox: What happened, Riddle?
Crewman: He can't answer, sir. The Q took his ability to speak.
Lennox: The Q again? Crewman, report.
Crewman: Uhhh, well sir, it seems that a Q has torn apart the ships systems, disabled Riddle's ability to speak and... turned the EMH into a tribble.
Lennox: I see.... carry on, crewman. I will examine the lieutenant.
Lennox proceeds to perform a medical scan on Lt. Riddle, the first such scan he has ever performed on the science officer. The results were conclusive, his larynx had been completely removed. But he noticed something a bit more startling, inconsistent with his previous medical reports. He decides that it is in both of their best interests not to report it and to confront him at a later time. For the time being, he stores the data in an extra secure area of his memory banks.
1st Nov 2007, 6:49 AM
*The Outer Hull of the Maverick*
Quinten appeared in a flash; his expression was one of anger. After he had left Kati, he discovered that he had been followed.
Quinten: Q! I know you're there! You really think I wouldn't notice.
1st Nov 2007, 6:54 AM
*The Outer Hull of the Maverick*
Q: Of course I'm here! *appears perched behind him* Really "quinten" you are SO predictable. Just what havoc do you intend to reek this time? You know I can't let you stay here!
1st Nov 2007, 6:59 AM
Quinten: I came here win back the love of my immortal life! Which you and the other Q's took away. Unfairly, I might add!
1st Nov 2007, 7:03 AM
Q: Please, it was a terrible idea fifty of their years ago and its STILL a bad idea and it only will be. Only you could be so completely ignorant as to be all knowing and still completely unwilling to see the truth. She is a mortal, she has a short life, and it is wrong to force her to live it with the likes of you! Besides, she can not even exist on the same level of the Q. It goes against the very fabric of her universe. A universe that we are sworn to protect, to keep order in!
1st Nov 2007, 7:20 AM
Quinten: Well, what good is being in control of time and space if you can't bend the fabric of the universe every once in awhile? Just a simple thought and she can be one of us! And before you disagree, Katian could handle being a Q. You and I both know she's not your average mortal...
Kati couldn't be alone right now. Q showing up unexpectedly and re-declairaing his love was enough to unnerve the usually calm woman. And Lennox... Q whisked her away in front of him without so much as an explaination. Kati had to find him and tell the Android she was fine.
All communications were out a pasing Engineer had told her. He also mentioned it was done by a Q. Kati didn't think her Q would do that, so there must be another...
By now Lennox would had left Ten-Forward, so she went to the next most likley place.
Katian: to a passing nurse Excuse me? I'm looking for a Doctor Lennox...
Nurse: He's with a patient right now. Are you injured?
Katian: No, I just need to see him. Please?
Nurse: sighs All right, I'll tell him your here. walks off
1st Nov 2007, 7:27 AM
Q: Right, and we let one of these mortal aliens, then we have to let them all in. It can't happen. It would send the continuum into complete chaos! And chaos among the Q means chaos among the universe. The answer is, and always will be NO! Now you must come with me.
Lennox: *to Riddle* Alright Alex, everything else checks out so, i would like you to go get some rest in your quarters until further notice. I am sure the captain will notify you if she needs you.
He looks up and sees Katian speaking with a nurse, who is now approaching him.
Nurse: Doctor, there is someone here who wants to see you, I told her you were busy but-
Lennox: It is fine nurse, carry on. *to Katian* Are you alright? Is everything ok?
1st Nov 2007, 7:45 AM
With Riddle in Sickbay, Lt. Kimble had taken over the Science station and the scanners.
Lt. Kimble: Captain, I found them! Both of the Q our on our hull.
Capt. Patton: Both? So there was another one... On screen, Mister Kimble.
The viewscren image switched from a starfield to the two Q having an arguement in the vaccum of space.
Quentin: Heh, yeah right! Like I'd just give in and loose her again. You want me to go back? Then you'll just have to catch me! disappears again
Lt. Kimble: There gone again...
Capt. Patton Keep scanning. From what I've heard about the Q, they'll be back.
Kati practially runs up to Lennox. a wave of relief washed over her just seeing him again. It took all of her self-control not to hug him.
Katian: I'm all right, Lennox. We... need to talk... It's about Q...
1st Nov 2007, 7:56 AM
Q: Damn you, Q! I know you can hear me!
Q watches as the other Q vanishes and begins his chase, also vanishing seconds later.
Lennox: Q? *looks around suspiciously* Walk with me. *to a Vulcan doctor* Dr. Krass, you have command.
Lennox leads Katian to a turbolift, and manually puts in the command for the lift to take them to the bottom deck. THe deck consists mostly of storage bays and backup control stations, a very desolate area of the ship, typically sparsely manned.
1st Nov 2007, 7:56 AM
OOC: goodnight all!
1st Nov 2007, 8:49 PM
Lt. Janeway: over comm.; Captain? This is Janeway, I have finally finished with the star fleet report they are setting compulsary DNA testing of all starfleet personel, I and the medical team it seems have to submit all of our crew members DNA to starfleet.
Capt. Patton: Thank you, Mister Janeway. Report back to your station on the Bridge... no response Lieutenant? Did you hear me? taps comm. badge Patton to Janeway, respond...
Only seconds after Q disappeared, Quentin reappeared with a smug expression. He had tricked Q into thinking he left the Maverick.
Quentin: Idiot... snaps, disappears again
The storage deck was dark and cold. Kati couldn't help but to shudder when they entered. How was she going to explain about Q...
Katian: Its a bit of a story, but fifty years ago I met a Q while visiting Vulcan. He said he was there to observe and try to figure out why Vulcans don't show emotion when he found me. laughs softly His words were 'you're an oasis of emotion in the middle of a logic desert.' It was quite charming... clears her throat
Anyway, not long after that we started seeing each other casually. Q would whisk me off to different planets, different times, anything we wanted to... It was fun for awhile, but then things became serious. Q declared that he loved me and wanted to be with me forever... I didn't know what to do... I cared about Q but not in the way he did me...
The rest of the Q Continuum found out and put him on trial. He was banned from ever seeing me again... or so I thought. Now he's here, dertermined to 'win me back.' I don't think he would harm the crew or the ship... But Q's determined, and when a Q puts his mind to something... she trails off
1st Nov 2007, 9:03 PM
Col Bijaj shakes her head. She is flustered by the blinking in and out of Q's and the assault on Riddle and the EMH. She does not like to be flustered. She breathes deeply and calls out
Col. Bijaj: Woods! What are your findings? He disabled our computer systems, but do the elusive tetrion emissions and the implant in the nav console have anything to do with Q?
1st Nov 2007, 9:51 PM
Lt. Woods picks up on the fact that Lt. Ivanova is dying to say something.
Lt. Woods: lieutenant, if you have any theories you want to share, please do. This is no time to be hesitant or to be afraid you are out of line. We're in a crisis and I expect my staff to give me their thoughts, whether I like them or not. So please feel free. *winks at her*

Lt. Woods: Sorry commander, I was debriefing Lt. Ivanova, We don't think the incidents are related. The Q are omnipotent, if they want us somewhere else they just would have whooshed us away. They wouldn't stoop so low as planting a device in the navigation counsel. Lt.cmdr sh'Raazh would you be so kind to collect the fragments of the device you just destroyed so I can have a closer look.
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh: Certainly Chief, I have done some analysis myself. This thing, whatever it was, was designed to put a cascading virus in our systems.
Lt. Woods:*for the first time during this crisis he looks alarmed* Are you sure Ma'am.
Lt. cmdr. As sure that Andoria is cold on a winters day
1st Nov 2007, 10:52 PM
Col. Bijaj: I agree with your assessment, Woods. Well, let's try to focus on our tasks and let Q play his games. We'll just try to work around him...or them...or whatever. The sooner we can get underway, the better!
Bah, Bijaj thinks, these Federation p'taks allow everyone access to their ships. On a Klingon ship, only Klingons would be allowed and no Klingon would dishonor his captain by sabotaging his ship.
1st Nov 2007, 11:10 PM
Com. Riahj: I need access right now!! I don't care how you do it, get me a secure external comm link and route it through the exhaust ports to disguise the signal. I don't care how you do it, Speok, just do it or you will regret it!!
He paces his quarters for a few minutes when his PADD blinks a silent signal.
Speok: Your link is ready.
Riajh: (very smoothly) Thank you, son. Switching to secure mode. Our arrival is delayed. I don't know for how long. The ship has been stopped and I'm nor sure why. You must change course to intercept us at these coordinates! No, I'm sorry. That's the best I can do right now. I'm going to "take a stroll" and see what I can find out. I'll contact immediately when I know what's going on!!"

The Shittu's are preparing a family meal when all of sudden everything goes dark in their living quarters.
Hakeem: Mommy, where are you *screaming in panicked voice*
Ophelia: *reaching out for her son* shss everything is alright mommy and daddy are right here.
Lt. Shittu: Au darn it. *crashing noises and a loud scream for Hakeem* It's all right Hakeem, daddy just bumped into mommies new vase and broke it. I am going to make things better. *taps com badge* Engineering what's going on, engineering please respond, bridge, anybody ... *only static*
Ophelia: honey, what's wrong why isn't anybody answering?
Lt. Shittu: I don't know *searching for the flashlights* Ah that's better. *flicks the flashlight on and gives one to his wive and son* Now we can see. Ophelia I am going to find what's wrong you stay here with Hakeem.
Hakeem: No daddy ...
Ophelia: Come now you are a big boy, there is nothing to be scared about. Daddy is just getting some people to fix the lights, ok. *Ophelia is scared but manages to calm her eight year old down.* Be careful honey.
Ifine smiles at his wife and son as he leaves their quarters at least the lights are still on in the corridors that's a good sign.
1st Nov 2007, 11:23 PM
*Corridor outside Command Quarters*
Com. Riahj strolls casually down the hallway, lit only by emergency lighting. It's quiet in these corridors. The officers were probably all attending to whatever the crisis is, he thought. A hatch opens at the end of the hall and a young woman steps out. She is rather flustered and out of breath. Com. Riahj smiles at her invitingly.
Com. Riahj: That's an unusual way to get around the ship. Do you always travel through the Jeffries tubes?
Counselor D'ar: Well, computers are out and nothing is working.
Com. Riahj: Oh, I had no idea there was a shipwide system problem!! I noticed the lights in my quarters and the doorway, and I was coming out to investigate. What's going on?
Counselor D'ar: Well, there's some being popping in and out of 10-Forward and the computers are down and I think the ship has come to a halt, but other than that...I'm not sure. She pushed her hair back and looked at him in confusion
1st Nov 2007, 11:31 PM
The lights are flickering in the corridors, whatever is going on it seems to be a ship wide problem. Lt. Shittu turns a corner and spots former commander Riahj and counselor D'ar talking. Their body language betrays their confusion about the situation.
Lt. Shittu: Commander, counselor, good evening.
Lt. Woods and Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh are working against the clock to stop the virus, somehow the speed of infection seems to be increasing and simultaneously infecting primary and back-up systems. Lt Woods fears if they don't find a way to stop it soon it might compromise life support systems.
Lt. cmdr. sh'Raazh: Maybe a polarization pulse would do the trick.
Lt. Woods: it's worth a shot *hoping his engineering crew is up for the job and looking for ways to stop this bloody infection*
1st Nov 2007, 11:38 PM
*Corridor outside Officer's Quarters*
Com. Riajh: Well, may I introduce myself? I am Jason Riajh, retired. I'm travelling to Romulus to visit some old colleagues and Starfleet was kind enough to allow me passage on the Maverick's maiden voyage. She is a fine ship by the way!
Counsellor D'ar: (embarrased, pushing back her hair) Oh, my pleasure! I'm Threllon D'ar, Ship's Counsellor, and this is my first assignment!
Com. Riajh: (smoothly) Well, Counselor...
Counselor D'ar: Oh, please call me Threllon! (blushing)
Com. Riajh: What a beautiful and unusual name! Well, Threllon, shall we go to the Bridge and find out what's going on?
Counselor D'ar: Oh...allright. I haven't been on the Bridge yet. Maybe this isn't the best time for me to go...
Com. Riajh: Nonsense! The Counselor is always allowed on the Bridge and I'm sure Sarah wouldn't mind her father's old friend coming to visit her...and maybe lend a hand. I have had my experiences with crises!!
1st Nov 2007, 11:49 PM
*Cooridor outside Officers' Quarters*
Com. Riahj glances up in irritation at Lt. Shittu's interruption but quickly smooths his expression over.
Com. Riahj: Hello, Lt. Shittu is it?
Counselor D'ar: Oh, hello..
Of course, Com. Riajh had reviewed the profiles of all the command staff on the Maverick and had an excellent memory which had stood him in good stead in many situations. He was also aware of Lt. Shittu's genetics work on Denobula.
Com. Riahj: Counselor D'ar and I are just going to the Bridge to find out what's going on. Would you care to join us?
1st Nov 2007, 11:55 PM
*Corridor outside Officers' Quarters*
Lt. Shittu doesn't notice the irritation displayed on Com. Riahj's face, he is to busy thinking about his son and wife back in their quarters. He regrets the fact that he let Ophelia pursue him to bring them along, if anything should happen to them he wouldn't be able to life with himself.
Lt. Shittu: Yes sir, I am. I would gladly join you to the bridge *anything for some answers, Ifine thinks to himself* Do you have any idea what might be going on, Sir?
2nd Nov 2007, 12:01 AM
*Corridor outside Officers' Quarters*
Comm Riahj, along with the Counselor and Lt. Shittu, strolls down the corridor to the Jeffries Tube hatch. He smiles sweetly at Counsellor D'ar and she blushes again. His calm and confident manner help her to relax and lessens her anxiety. Meanwhile behind his bland expression, Riahj's mind is turning over the various scenarios which could account for the systems failures. His plans had been so carefully laid. Surely no one could interfere with them.
Comm. Riahj: (holding the Jeffries tube hatch door open) Well, let's jump in! Ladies first!!
