Lt. Woods engineering Log: stardate unknown.
The following is a transcript of Lt. Woods engineering log.
Once again me and my team have found ourselves with an engineering puzzle to solve. We've encountered a little known but hostile Alien species know as the Kisheyans and their Android slaves and were faced with several puzzling facts.
When we made contact with the crashed Android ship we couldn't make heads or tails of it until a science ensign named Vixya uncovered that the Android ship was biological in origin, something that isn't unheard of, the Breen are prime example of such technology or a little further from home Species 8472, but it's rather rare and to my great shame I must say I've missed it because I was to focused on the technical aspect of the puzzle. I've yet to determine most of it's biological components but some of it resembles plant live indigenous to Vulcan. Then there are the Androids themselves, one of them is a Hoffman type android like our CMO, we have yet to determine how she ended up with the Kisheyan android rebels. The Kisheyan androids turned violent when they thought we were going to turn them over to the Kisheyans and took several hostages in sickbay included myself and the captain and ended with the brutal stabbing of Captain Patton and shooting the Female Hoffman android. I'm glad to say that my joint efforts with Lt.cmdr. Hal to prevent android attacks have worked, the power signal disrupted their positronic brain long enough to take them into custody. The female android is in engineering and suffered cascade failure but thanks to the efforts of Lt.jg. Stitch we managed to reverse the damage I hope she can answer some of our questions when she wakes up. This takes my to the Kisheyans themselves, they came after the Maverick to claim the androids and we soon found ourselves in conflict with them. We took refuge in nebula to avoid confrontation but the Kisheyans send a shuttle after us that hit us with an unknown weapon that penetrated the shields like they weren't their, my and my team are working on a defense to prevent this form happening again. I think the trick lays in to find an EM band narrow enough to counteract their unusual EM weapon frequencies. The biggest problem however is that all information we have on Kisheyan technology seems to be outdated or incorrect so we are really working with an unknown element here but from what I gathered from our readings on their shield harmonics is that their shields are still their weakness so hopefully we can exploit that if we encounter them again.
22nd Mar 2008, 6:40 AM
Just as Stitch is about to turn and walk away, Ezra's eyes spring open. She sits up in an adbrupt, mechanical manner and looks around the room. Her movements are overtly machine like in nature as she holds her hands in front of her face and then looks up at Stitch.
Ezra: Where am I? Who are you? Where is my crew?
Stitch: You are in the cybernetics section of the engineering department aboard the Federation starship Maverick. I am Lt. Kirinirix Stitch, an engineer serving aboard this vessel. Your crew is currently being held by our security forces.
Ezra: *frowns* And you are Kisheyan? They have Kisheyans serving aboard this vessel?
Stitch: I... *quietly* I am an android- not that it even matters. How do you feel? Do you detect any errors within your systems?
Ezra: I seem to have gaps in my memory. What happened? How did I end up on this ship?
Stitch: You and the other androids were found at a crash site on a deserted planet.
Ezra: So do you lock all crash victims in the brig, or just androids? So do you lock all crash victims in the brig, or just androids?
Stitch: You repeated yourself-
Ezra: Did I?
Stitch: Yes, you did. The androids are in the brig stemming from an attack that occured in sickbay.
Ezra: What attack?
Stitch: Six of the twelve androids shot you, and injured two others, including our captain who is still in critical condition. From the reports I read, it was apparently some kind of mutiny against you. Our captain had intended to turn your crew over to Kisheyan authorities.
Ezra: Twelve... twelve androids? We had a crew of one hundred and twenty when we set out. They attacked people? They attacked me? They-
Stitch: Your sibling android as well, yes.
Ezra: Sibling... Lennox? The android Lennox serves on this vessel?
Stitch: Yes, he is our chief medical officer... Ezra, it is apparent that you have lost a lot of your memory- that our you are putting on an elaborate sharade. In any case, it is my understanding that Hal- our chief security officer, would like to speak with you.
Stitch: *taps comm badge* Lt. Stitch to security, the android in engineering has regained consciousness.
Sharpp continues to run through all of the PADDs on the table before him. At this point, he isn't even sure what he is trying to accomplish of what he is looking for. He is just aimlessly rummaging through the information when a very annoying presence nears him. He looks up, above the rim of his glasses and is greeted by the annoyingly cheerful face of Counselor Holly.
Holly: Do you mind if I sit here?
Holly: *sits down* So how are things going?
Sharpp: Just another day on the Barge of The Dead- can you leave please? I'm busy.
Holly: You miss all of your apointments.
Sharpp: I'm working.
Holly: Your shift ended an hour ago.
Sharpp: Do you have a point?
Holly: You can't keep ignoring me. If you do I will be forced to report you to.
Sharpp: Report me to command. Yes yes, I know. And then they'll relieve me of duty again for not complying to the predetermined terms. I know, trust me.
Holly: I'm glad you remember.
Sharpp: Ok *puts his PADD down* I assume you won't leave me alone until I talk to you. What do you want?
Holly: Well, you're my patient, I want to know how you're doing, for one thing.
Sharpp: I am fine, moderately content. I keep myself busy, and everyone is afraid of me after killing the admiral, so there has been far less taunting. I really can't complain.
Holly: What about Vixya?
Sharpp: What about Vixya?
Holly: You live with them now, to me thats a decent indication that its a rather serious relationship. Are you in love?
Sharpp: Love? *laughs* Are you serious? I don't even know what love means, above the simple biochemical reaction. The concept doesn't even exist in many cultures. It is such a generalized and abstract concept, as a scientist, I don't think I can even give a definitive answer to that question.
Holly: Let me re-phrase, do-
Sharpp: I care about them, I get along with them well, and I enjoy the companionship. Paticularly from someone who isn't incredibly judgemental, like most members of bi-gendered species. There is none of that sexual tension or role expectancies. Its a relief, really. I always hated most people, I just never realized how disgusting the general population was until I met Vixya. And thats all I will say on the matter. If you ask me anything else about them, don't expect an answer.
Holly: Alright... You mentioned the incident with Admiral-
Sharpp: Its not an "incident", I killed him.
Holly: Ok, you mentioned killing the admiral. How have you been coping with that?
Sharpp: There is nothing to cope with, in fact, I have never slept so well. But the truth of the matter is that it wasn't the first time I have had to kill someone, and I doubt it will be the last.
Holly: You've killed other people?
Sharpp: Yes, yes I have.
Holly: May I ask how this happened?
Sharpp: They posed an immediate threat to either myself or others, so I killed them. Isn't that the human thing to do? We are incredibly violent creatures, afterall.
Holly: So this was in the line of duty. How does this make you feel? Knowing that you have taken lives?
Sharpp: I have had enough of this conversation. I really don't know why starfleet insists that I see a therapist. I can't understand how trudging up so much information can be of help to anyone. Now if you don't mind, I should be going. I still have a lot of work to catch up on.
Sharpp scoops up the armful of PADDs and storms out of ten forward, leaving Counselor Holly sitting at the table, staring at the half empty glass of water he left behind.

Lt. Elen is parading on the bridge fiddling with her combadge everybody on the bridge feels anxious, the captains condition is still unknown and the recent skirmish with the Kisheyans is all but forgotten.
Kobe: Sir incoming transmission of the Mead.
Elen: understood, Commander Melena the Mead has arrived.
A very tall and serious looking Antaran lieutenant is standing at the security station of the Meads bridge his eyes are fixed on the viewscreen and he stands as frozen at his post, he doesn't even blink when the Mead's captain adresses him.
Captain Saffin: Lieutenant Hudak assemble a team for the transportion of the Androids to our brig and coordinate this with the Mavericks security chief.
Hudak: Aye sir. Ensign Romina you're with me.
((ooc: a link with some information about the Antarans http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Antaran ))
23rd Mar 2008, 5:07 AM
The cell is cramped with kisheyan androids, some guilty, others not. They have all caught word that they are about to be turned over to another federation vessel. A female android known as Miru sits next to a male named Juran. Miru is of a petite stature, with raven hair, red eyes, and pale ivory skin. She had worked in a brothel previous to her escape, which explains her specialized appearance. Juran, on the other hand, is of a very similar appearance to Stitch. He too had been a government owned android, all of whom share a same general appearance.
Miru: What do you suppose will become of us now? I assume that we'll be turned over to the Kisheyans.
Juran: Most likely. After all this work, after all that we've been through, it comes down to this. We'll be snuffed out like candles.
Miru: It makes me thankful for the suicide implant.
Juran: I'm not so sure I can use it, end my own life.
Miru: The suffering from execution will far outweigh that of suicide. But regardless, I don't want to die either. I'm frightened.
Juran: I am too, I can't let them do this, not now.
23rd Mar 2008, 2:32 PM
Cadet Woods and Lt.jg. Caeli are sitting side by side reviewing several PADDS about Kisheyan politics. Tobias lets out a soft purr out of frustration, nothing useful has turned up so far they just don't have enough information to built a good comprehensive strategy. The young cadet notices out of the corner of his eyes that security is preparing the Androids for transport.
Tobias: So what do you think will happen to them, sir?
Caeli: Well the ones responsible for the mutiny will be trailed and send of to a Federation penal colony. The innocent ones probably will be granted asylum.
Tobias: So we don't expedite them to their home world.
Caeli: Unlikely, they committed a crime on Federation sole so to speak and the Federation has no formal treaties or diplomatic links with the Kisheyans at all. From what we know it's unlikely the Kisheyans will launch a formal complaint so the Androids will be relatively safe. But I suspect that we can expect attack campaigns of the Kisheyans so it's possible the Federation Counsel will turn our prisoners over the Kisheyans for the safety of Federation citizens but once again probably not.
Tobias: Somehow it feels to light for what they've done.
Caeli: Maybe but justice doesn't mean sending people of to their death no matter what the crime, I think they were mostly afraid. They misunderstood the captains intentions and took desperate measures to protect themselves cadet, the world isn't black and white you know most of us deal with various shades of gray.
Tobias stares at his mentor and wonders why he isn't more angry, the truth was that if they had handed over the Androids the Kisheyans probably let them be but Federation nobility prevented them from seeing this simple fact or at least that was how the young Catian felt. The teenager thinks about his parents who died during the Dominion Cold War and wonders were they scared, did they know they were going to die. The boy quickly takes a PADD and nods trying hard to fight his tears.

*Katian and Lennox's Quarters*
Katian: Yes, I suppose you're right... It would be an inprovement in some ways. Dealing with traders and Ferengi and unruely barflies can get to be an annoyance...
Patton woke once again to the soft beeping of medical consoles in a sterilized recovery room. Her back hurt from lying there, but it also hurt to shift to another position.
A new bed was now beside her, with Alex sleeping soundly. Alex? Why on Earth was he here?
Patton: *quietly* Alex...?
24th Mar 2008, 5:54 PM
*Katian and Lennox's Quarters*
Lennox: You certainly have more patience for it than I would... Some of those customers can be down right unbearable.
Alex squints as he opens his eyes. despite the slightly dimmed lights in the room, it seemed quite blinding when he woke. At first he can not figure out who is speaking to him, but eventually the voice registers as belonging to Sara.
Riddle: *sleepily* What is it?
24th Mar 2008, 7:39 PM
The image of captain Saffin is towering over the bridgecrew, he scowls at Lt. Elen as he starts questioning them about recent events.
Lt. Elen: I understand sir, commander Melena will be here momentary to answer all your questions.
Hrisvalar: Oh goodie the food is here. Is something troubling you Raian?
25th Mar 2008, 7:37 AM
Kish is behind the bar, cleaning glasses. She doesn't understand why they keep glassware to begin with, but she remembers Lirra saying something about it having to do with maintaining an "atmosphere".
Jodi sits down at the bar and is soon followed by a very bewildered looking nurse Verrik.
Kish: Can I get you two anything? It looks like you've had a rough day. I have a crate of Romulan ale in storage, for the right price of course.
Luv: As great as that would be right now, I don't carry money. I will take a glass of apple vodka on ice.
Verrik:*somber* I will just have some tiburonian whiskey, thanks.'
Kish: Very well, if you should care for a finer choice of beverage, just let me know.
The ferengi pours their drinks from bottles kept at the bar and then disappears to the kitchen to pick up other orders.
Verrik slams down his drink in one shot, his antennae twirl ever so slightly as he does. Jodi watches him with a strange, analytical glee as he seems to wallow in his own misery. There is a long silence and she finally decides to try to break the silence.
Lt. Luv: Is it really that bad?
Verrik: Well... I guess not. All this close contact with the kisheyans just brings back a lot of memories.
Lt. Luv: Bad ones, I take it?
Verrik: Not entirely. My time on Thetara was interesting, to say the least. I can deal with what happened to me, I was an enemy spy, and they did what most societies do when they catch spies. They tortured me for information and when I wouldn't comply, they were going to kill me. Thats just how it works.
Lt. Luv: I sense a "but" coming.
They order another round of drinks and and Verrik continues to get wasted.
Verrik: But... I saw that girl. The one with the dark hair, I saw her in sickbay.
Lt. Luv: So you saw a girl, what, do you have the hots for her or something?
Verrik: No no. I met her before, when I was on thetara. Her name is Miru and I got to know her pretty well when I was there. Its actually because of her that my cover got blown, I helped her escape.
Lt. Luv: I see... So why is that upsetting?
Verrik: I don't know, i just don't like thinking of any of it. If there ever was a shiir'utorr, hell, or gre'thor or whatever you buy into. Anyway, if I ever saw such a place, it was Thetara. Pits of rotting bodies. The cities were vast networks of tunnels and streets, full of violence and crime. Disease, decay and vast injustice. A crawling mass of misery and suffering-
Lt. Luv: *sips vodka* Sounds like a great place to take a vacation.
26th Mar 2008, 1:15 AM
Dammou: The Androids are ready for transport Lt.cmdr. Hal. Do you want to question Ezra yourself before transferring her to the Mead or do you trust that their security chief will handle it?
Dammou is relived that the prisoners will be taken of their hands but at the same time has an ominous feeling about all of this, he wonders if he is getting paranoid but soon shakes the thought it was just a feeling probably due his extreme tiredness and the fact he hadn't eaten in almost 12 hours.
Slevin: Jaden keep an eye on our resident Ferengi I suspect she is trying to sell my private stock of Romulan ale.
26th Mar 2008, 1:19 AM
Melena entered the bridge and noticed the less than friendly looking captain on the viewscreen. She did't exactly have fond memories of him as their last meeting hadn't gone well to say the least. She fixed her most gracious smile before addressing the viewscreen.
Melena: Thankyou Lietenant. Captain Saffin, a pleasure to see you again. Preparations have already begun for the transportation of our guests. Lt. Cmdr. Hal will be in charge from our side. I trust they will be taken care of appropriately?
Raian had found himself a little distracted about something other than the andorian beauty before him. He frowned a little as he began to tuck into his meal before sighing.
Zan: It's nothing really, I'm just wondering what will happen to the androids. You see, Aeryn made a promise to help them one day and me being the type that can't let things go easily, I feel bad that theres really not a lot I can do. I should really stop worrying about dead peoples problems and start living my own life. Speaking of which, how has it been treating you? Everything thats been going on up here lately's been a little tough to deal with huh?
Meanwhile, Jaden nodded quietly and glanced over to Kish and the officers whom she was serving. He noticed that one of them was Lt. Luv, well known for drunken behaviour, and he couldn't help but wonder what effect all of that alchohol had on her symbiont. He decided that his best move for now would be to stand close to the ale for now as he continued to wipe the counter.
Eloran nodded in response to Dammou as he waited for word from the Melena and the Mead to begin the tranferral. He looked over at the androids, each one looking slightly more terrified than the last, and couldn't help but wonder what their fate would be. Normal procedure would of course have the guilty punished and the innocent granted asylum, or at least offered it. He cleared his throat a little before turning to Dammou and speaking quietly.
Hal: We should leave the questioning to the Mead otherwise we'll only be holding up the operation. (taps combadge in response to Stitch) Thankyou lietenant, what is her condition? Is miss Ezra prepared for transport?
26th Mar 2008, 1:31 AM
Hrisvalar: I don't know Raian, I'm no legal expert but your friend Korvin does has some legal expertise maybe you should ask him. Well I think it's honorable and very noble that you try to life up to your promises of your former hosts. But I can see why it can get a bit much. How do other joined Trills deal with these sort of problems? My life is looking up sitting here with a beautiful man and enjoying his company. *blushing*
Saffin: I wish I could say the same, I demand a full debriefing on your mess commander and if I'm not satisfied I'll have yours and your crews commission is that understood.
Elen: *under her breath* nice fellow isn't he.
Dammou: Understood sir, Chief Vado prepare to transport the prisoners directly to the Meads brig.
((ooc: Saffin is making idle treaths))
26th Mar 2008, 1:40 AM
Melena can't help but smirk a little as she had expected this kind of response. She looked up again at the viewer before continuing, although she really didn't like what she would have to suggest.
Melena: Very well captain, it would be best to discuss this in person of course. We can debrief on the Maverik after the operation is completed. One hour should suffice, unless of course you would rather discuss this aboard your vessel?
Raian grinned as Imaru finished and took her hand again.
Zan: (teasing) Aw, I'm blushing. See, even my spots are turning pink! Ha, seriously I think we could make this work, if you want to that is? I mean, none of us are exactly the type to beat around the bush, as they say, like a couple of kids are we?
26th Mar 2008, 1:46 AM
Saffin: I'll come to the Maverick, commander. I'll see you and your senior staff in a hour, that will give you enough time to prepare an descent meeting. Is the captain in any condition to attend this meeting of the minds?
Hrisvalar: Andorian women don't like playing games if we want something we go for it and I like your spots turning pink it's kinda sexy *shy and playful smile and goes a deeper shade of green*
26th Mar 2008, 2:00 AM
Melena: I'm afraid there is a strong possibility that Captain Patton will not be attending. We'll see you in one hour captain, Maverik out.
As Melena 'unfixed' her smile, she glanced around at the current bridge crew before fixing her gaze upon the officer at the communications station. She sighed before speaking.
Melena: You heard the man, let the senior staff know about this meeting, observation lounge in one hour. I'll alert the captain personally.
Zan: You go girl, no use in being evasive. As one of my teachers at the academy often said 'shy kids get nothing'. You really are something special Imaru, I've never met anyone quite like you. You're really cute when you blush like that you know!
26th Mar 2008, 2:16 AM
Kobe: aye ma'am, senior staff please report to the captains ready room.
Hrisvalar: *giggles and manages to go even greener* Thanks Raian, I feel the same way about you.
The two young officers flirting doesn't go unnoticed by the other people in Ten Forward, Slevin smiles at the young couples ritual but quickly turns his attention back to Kish, he wonders what that little Ferengi woman is up to.
*Tigan, Tahlandi and Thellin's quarters*
Thellin is staring at the ceiling the neuromonitoring device is really bothering him as the door swooshes open he jumps out of bed hoping to see the beautiful blue eyes of Tahlandi but instead is greeted by pointy ears and spots.
Thellin: Hiya Jerrod theres a private message for you, it's your mother.
Tigan: Thanks Sorjei, what's up with that *points at the device*
Thellin: Don't feel like discussing it right now, hope you don't mind.
Tigan: Of course not bud, I'll be in my room see you tomorrow sleep tight.
Tigan goes to his private computer consul, he wonders what kind of message his mother would send him, he just hopes she didn't get herself into trouble again.
26th Mar 2008, 8:01 AM
Stitch: *worried, over the comm* Yes sir, she is stable enough to travel. However, there seems to be residual damage from the cascade failure. I can not guarantee that such an event will not occur again.
26th Mar 2008, 11:08 PM
Name and Rank: NCO Archer (counselor)
Species/Homeworld: Anear born on Alpha Centauri Colony
Position: psychologist with expertise in the fields of clinical neurospychology, industrial and organizational psychology and personal management.
A brief sentence or two describing your personality: Counselor Archer is named after the legendary Jonathan Archer, an important figure in Andorian history. Like most Aenars Archer is a pacifist which sometimes conflicts with his work in Star Fleet. He is sorta of a bookworm and tends to keep to himself and has no life beyond his work.
27th Mar 2008, 1:39 AM
Patton: Alex... *swallows* What are you doing here? I thought you were fine...
*Katian and Lennox's Quarters*
Katian: More than you would know, love...
27th Mar 2008, 6:55 AM
Riddle: I am fine- they wanted to keep me here for observation over night. There was a psychic attack and... well thats not really important now. How are you feeling?
27th Mar 2008, 11:18 PM
Sara tries to sit up once again.
Patton: An attack? Dammit... What a f***ing great time to be here! *coughs* I need to-- *coughs, glares at Riddle* I need to know what the hell happened, Lieutenant. Thats an order...
28th Mar 2008, 5:18 AM
Riddle: Damn it Sara, lay back and try to relax! We have things under control! There were kisheyan ships after us, one had a telepath aboard and they made mental contact with several people on the ship. But all of the kisheyans committed suicide and the androids are probably being transferred as we speak.
Kezi sits at the helm of the tiny vorta ship. It makes remarkable speed, but is lacking in certain creature comforts, such as a working bathroom. It belonged to her deceased uncles wife. After Weyoun (the original, not a clone) went missing, his wife, Jilusika, left the clan.
Amazingly, Kezi and Reg ran into her on their way to the transport station. Kezi, told her of the events of the past few days. Jilusika ended up giving them the small spacecraft as a gift for their recent "wedding".
So now they sit in the cabin, and Kezi sends a transmission to the Maverick, telling them to expect their arrival soon.
Kezi: I love this ship! *sighs* Sometimes I wish I would have become a helmsmen instead of a scientist. The freedom of it, the pure speed. Nothing protecting you from the vaccuum of space, faster than the speed of light, is some tiny pieces of metal and a pressurized cabin. Isn't it great?
28th Mar 2008, 6:08 AM
Reg pales with Kezi's colorful description of what they were doing and swallowed nervously.
Barclay: Y-yeah... Wonderful... *fidgets in his seat* It c-could be worse. We could have to t-transport across space...
Patton: Dammit... The ship was almost destroyed and the refugees are being turned back over to their oppressors and what am I doing? Laying up in Sickbay arguing with my husband! I can't have this. *yells* I need to speak with a doctor!
28th Mar 2008, 6:27 AM
Kezi: *giggles* I forget that you have a transporter phobia. It never bothered me, not a bit. We should be randevueing with the Maverick in about ten minutes. I hope it hasn't been too boring since we left. Any final requests before we get there? There is a meteor field ahead and it might be a bumpy ride.
Riddle: God damn it...
Riddle climbs off his biobed, ripping monitors off himself on the way. He walks to where Patton is laying, wringing his hands and shaking his head all the way.
Riddle: Everything is fine. They're being sent to the Mead picked up the androids. They aren't being sent back to Thetara, not even the god damned criminals! Everything is alright, Sara, I promise you that, I do.
28th Mar 2008, 5:37 PM
Melena entered sickbay and caught the attention of one of the doctors. She was just about to ask about the captain when she heard the shouting from one of the medical bays. She walked over to see what the situation was and overheard the last part about the transportation.
Melena: Captain, Lt. Riddle, how are you? Is everything alright here? The androids are being tranferred to the Mead right now, Lt. Cmdr. Hal is in charge from our side. Captain Saffin will be arriving in approximately forty-five minutes for debriefing.
Hal: (through com) Hal to Cmdr. Melena, we're ready for transport from the brig but we're still waiting on Ezra. We've just received word from engineering stating that she's fine to travel but theres a risk of further cascade failure.
Melena: We'll be sure to warn them, thankyou Melena out. (to Patton) Do I assume correctly that neither of you will be attending the debriefing?
28th Mar 2008, 10:08 PM
Tahlandi is still studying the scans of Thellin's brain activity during the recent telepathic attacks. He rubs his head and sighs in frustration this just doesn't make sense suddenly he feels a presence looming over him as he turns he notices NCO Archer, the Aenar counselor. Tahlandi suppresses a giggle because he can just image Lt.jg Sharpp's reaction to Archer's presence, he personifies the two things their beloved neurotic temporary CSO hates the most a telepath and a counselor.
Archer: I heard you needed assistance with a neuropsychological puzzle. I'm correct that this is about the hybrid Thellin.
Tahlandi: Yes I could use some help, the more I study this scans the more I'm puzzled by it. Look at this this is the brainwave patron of Thellin, I compared it with the scans of a full Aenar and factored in his Andorian make-up but it can't explain the anomalies I found.
Archer: How do you mean.
Tahlandi: Well look at this spikes when he got entangled in the telepathic link, I've never seen this patron before.
Archer: I see, maybe those spikes are external or due the telepathic entanglement.
Tahlandi: I thought so at first but look at this. *shows a brain image*
Archer: Which species does this brain belong to.
Tahlandi: It's Thellin's brain
sh'Raazh: come on Rich get dressed we can't go to a staff meeting looking like this, where did I leave my tunic.
*Thellin, Tahlandi and Tigan's quarters*
Tigan begins playing his mother message and is unpleasantly surprissed by the news she brings him. Apparently the Romulan government has started to crackdown on Federation citizens near the Neutral zone borders and all Romulan citizens with ties to people who serve in the Federation in any capacity are being arrested at random clearly the Romulans have not taken kind to the recent turns in Federation politics.
Tigan: computer set up a secure line to star base 8
((ooc: not trying to make a new crisis))
29th Mar 2008, 3:55 AM
Patton: Yes, I am. Give me a moment to--
EMH: *entering* Actually, you won't. Lie back, Captain, you're too weak to attend any debriefings.
Patton: Dammit, why does everyone insist on protecting me? I think I'd know better than some projection from hell if I felt like going somewhere!
Patton slid to the edge of the hospital bed, trying to stand. She made it to her feet before falling forwards, the pain being too much. The EMH moved to catch her.
EMH: You've been relieved of duty for now. And as I'm in charge of Sickbay for the time being, I order you back to bed. No argument.
Patton: *struggling* Let me go or I'll dismantle your program myself!
Richie was lying face down on the bed, clothed in only a sheet.
Kimble: *muffled* I threw it over the lamp in the living area... Do you think we can keep the volume down a little? It feels like a warp breech in my skull...
Barclay: N-not really... *confused* How d-did you know about my phobia? I didn't tell you that...
29th Mar 2008, 6:44 AM
Kezi gives a suspicious and knowing glance as she looks over at Barclay before a smile goes across her face.
Kezi: Oh, I have my resources, lieutenant... But truthfully, someone mentioned it to me. A long time ago, actually, before I had even met you. A transporter operator kept talking about a human named Lieutenant Barclay who was terrified of the teleporter and thought that there were monsters living in it that were attacking him.
Riddle goes and helps the EMH to virtually drag Patton back to her bed.
Riddle: *extremely frustrated* God damn it Sarah! You were just gutted, your intestines were all over the floor of sickbay for logic's sake! You almost died! You need to recover, so stop being so f*cking thick headed!
Alex becomes quiet for a moment as he attempts to collect his thoughts.
Riddle: *more calmly* I'm sorry, I am just incredibly worried about you. The doctor is right.
29th Mar 2008, 6:54 AM
Sara relented and allowed herself to be dragged back into bed. She pulled out of Alex's and the EMH's grasp and turned as far away from them as possible.
Patton: *crying* Shut up, you green-blooded b*stard...
EMH: Perhaps it would be best to leave them be, Commander.
Silently, the EMH escorted Cmdr. Melena out of the recovery room.
Reg groned and sulked deeper into his chair.
Barclay: *pathetically* I didn't w-want you to know about that...
29th Mar 2008, 7:32 AM
Kezi looks over at Reg, spinning her seat around. She watches him attempt to hide in plain sight, a sign of his obvious embarrassment.
Kezi: Why not? Everyone's afraid of something... Its really not a big deal.
Riddle: Oh like you have room to talk! ... Listen, there is no reason to fight over this. But you are not a doctor, you are a hard headed Starfleet captain. Whether you want to believe it or not, you're in no position to do anything right now but try to recuperate.
29th Mar 2008, 8:03 AM
Patton: Go to hell, Riddle! *chokes* This is all your fault to begin with...
Barclay: No, it is. You probably t-think I'm insane now... *sighs* I k-knew it couldn't last having a relationship with someone...
29th Mar 2008, 8:23 AM
Riddle: Oh, this is all my fault! Right? What, did I stab you? Or better yet, did I force you to keep seeing me after that first time we were together? No, I don't think so, so don't try to pass the blame, captain. You've been in command the entire time!
Kezi: You know Reg, I'm not sure why you think this relationship is over... I don't think you're insane, quite the contrary really. Its nothing to be ashamed of, everyone is scared of something. *laughs* You know what I'm scared of? I mean, what I've been incredibly scared of since I was a little girl? I'm incredibly scared of forcefields. They terify me, which gets in the way of my work quite a bit.
29th Mar 2008, 8:43 AM
Barclay: *muttering* A forcefield is only p-projected energy... A transporter rips you apart. Literaly. B-but... Everyone else that found out thought I was crazy. And they all quoted h-how its the safest from of travel. One molecule out of place a-and POOF! You don't come back! *crosses his arms* Who's the r-really the crazy one?
Sara is quiet, not wanting to admit Alex was right...
Everyting was her fault...
29th Mar 2008, 9:13 AM
Kezi: Crazy? I don't know, I don't think either of us are... I'm not saying that your fear is entirely irrational, but I don't think your crazy. You're putting words in my mouth and i really don't appreciate it. You're pushing me away, can't you see that?
Riddle moves nearer to Sara, cautiously, he's afraid that she might strike out at any moment.
Riddle *softly* Sara... you've been through a lot. Please, can we just try to work out all of our interpersonal issues later?
29th Mar 2008, 9:32 AM
Patton: Just... Leave me alone, Alex...
Reg beigins to pick at some imaginary lint on the armrest.
Barclay: I'm sorry... Its... I don't have a v-very good record with... W-well, with anyone, really... I always end up doing something like this...
29th Mar 2008, 10:50 AM
Kezi sighs as she looks at the vastness of space ahead. She considers the complexity of relationships. Things as simple as your interaction with the attendant at the replomat can be expedentially more complicated than it appears. So intimate, interpersonal relationships are simply astronomical. Why all the complexity? She wonders, why can't everyone just coexist without conflict?
Kezi: I know Reg, its alright. *smiles* But I'm not letting you get away from me, not without a fight at least.
Riddle opens his mouth and starts to say something, but he stops and simply turns and walks out of the room, and then out of sickbay, ignoring a nurse's plea for him to stop.
Riddle walks, trying to clear his mind and drying to decide what to do next, and more importantly, where to go. He couldn't go back to the captains quarters, they never really felt like home to begin with, and suddenly they seem far less inviting. All filled with her belongings, her decorations, everything in there is her. It isn't that he doesn't care about her, because he certainly does. But right now, he finds himself rethinking everything. Perhaps they were only put together because of some primordial vulcan mating bond. Perhaps, without that, they weren't even remotely compatible.
He notices him that the members of the crew he is passing are all giving him strange looks, and none of the usual overly polite greetings. Finally, a suliban medic steps asside and stops him.
Sorrid: Lieutenant Commander Riddle? Are you alright, sir? Perhaps we should both go back to sickbay...
Riddle: I'm fine, I just need to get to the lab.
Sorrid: Forgive me sir, but do you usually go to the lab in starfleet issued pajamas from sickbay?
Riddle looks down and realizes that Sorrid was correct, he had stormed out of sickbay in such a hurry, that he didn't even bother to put socks or shoes on.
Riddle: Crewman, please. I really don't need to go to sickbay right now. I can't go to sickbay right now. I just need to go to my office and get some sleep, or meditate, or something. I don't even know.
Sorrid:Sir, I don't think that's a good idea.
Riddle: What do you want from me? I'm fine, really. I just... I got into a fight with the captain and left in a hurry, ok? I'm sure you can find it within yourself to empathize.
Sorrid: Aye, sir, if you insist.
Riddle finally makes his way to the science lab, where he continues to get strange looks from most of the officers. He ignores them and walks into his office, the door is already open. Sharpp sits at his desk behind the ever growing pile of PADDs and memos. He looks up above the rim of his spectacles and smirks at his commanding officer.
Sharpp: Ah, its good to see you, Alex. Has starfleet changed the uniform protocol again?
Riddle: I don't want to talk about it.
Sharpp: Thats great sir, because I don't want to know.
Riddle: How long have you been here?
Sharpp: Since you put me in command.
Riddle: Damn, you're more diligent than I am.
Sharpp: Oh, I know. They didn't let me stay in starfleet because of my charming personality and good looks, you know. Judging by your attire, I take it that you aren't here to help me with the paperwork.
Riddle: Sorry, but you better get used to it. Who knows, you might be in for a promotion soon, if things keep going the way they have been.
Sharpp: I certainly hope not, I never cared for all of the glitz and glamor of a command position. That and it would get in the way of my drinking habit.
Riddle: Perhaps you're on to something... Anyway, Sharpp. I want you to get out of here, I need to get some sleep.
Sharpp: Don't most people sleep in beds? I mean, I personally prefer the floor of my closet- but, to each their own.
With that, Sharpp gathers his work and moves to the more public area of the main laboratory, giving his superior officer the requested privacy. Giving a disapproving glance to the telepathic counselor on his way to an area of empty desk space.
29th Mar 2008, 10:04 PM
sh'Raazh is rather in a foul mood her antennas twitch furiously and clicks with her tongue. She is in no mood for a staff meeting at all, she just wants to spend a few quite hours with her lover and get some sleep but apparently somebody has decide otherwise.
sh'Raazh: Richie maybe you should have combed your hair, dammit *one of her pipes falls* I wonder what this is all about anyway.
Archer: Maybe we should get a biologist opinion on this or a doctor it could be a normal mutation.
Tahlandi: Yes you're right, who do you have in mind.
Archer: What about Lt.jg. Sharpp he's an exo-biologist is he not?
Tahlandi: Well yes but I think he's busy at the moment plus he really doesn't like our kind.
Archer: Our kind?
Tahlandi: Psychologist, especially clinical ones maybe we should get the opinion of a doctor first.
NCO Archer lets out a snorting noise and walks towards Lt.jg. Sharpp with a PADD.
Archer: Goodevening Sir I'd like your opinion on this image. *shows the PADD with Thellin's brain*
30th Mar 2008, 1:23 AM
Dammou: Sir I can handle the situation if you need to go to the officer lounge. Oh and sir be beware of captain Saffin he's a real bastard.
Dammou had had the pleasure of serving under captain Saffin during the Dominion war and was less than impressed by the managing skills of Saffin, a coldhearted and ruthless man that cared more about his career advancement than the people working under him.
30th Mar 2008, 1:40 AM
Melena was about to intervene when she was escorted out by the holographic doctor. She was sure that the situation would be contained but was becoming increasingly concerned with the captains mental state as these outbursts were becoming increasingly common, or so she had heard. She nodded at her escort before leaving quietly and heading to the Observation Lounge.
Hal looked up from the console as Dammou spoke and smiled gratefully in return.
Hal: The debriefing isn't for another half an hour but if you're sure then it gives me time to get Kira and I sorted. Thanks for the warning lietenant, I've heard one or two things about him myself and look forward to meeting him (sarcastic). I leave everything in your capable hands lietenant.
With that he left with Kira, his first stop being his quarters to settle Kira as he couldn't very well take her to a debriefing.
30th Mar 2008, 1:48 AM
Lt. Woods found himself alone in the observation lounge with nothing much to do than stare at the panoramic windows, he never really took the time to appreciate the beauty of space. He takes a PADD and revues crew assignments and progress reports on repairs and of course the condition of Ezra, doctor Lennox long lost sister.
Raian and Imura finished their meal, laughing and flirting, the young Andorian woman feels a light buzz from the Sake.
Hrisvalar: Did you like the food Raian, how about desert or maybe a coffee?
Dammou: Aye sir and don't let captain Saffin intimidate the crew, he likes his power trips.
30th Mar 2008, 2:17 AM
Raian sat back in his seat and sighed before replying.
Zan: I'll have whatever you have babe. Personally I think I could use something a little stronger than coffee right now but I'd rather not make a spectacle of myself. Besides, I can't enjoy your company if I'm wasted and it's not exactly the best way to make a good impression!
30th Mar 2008, 2:37 AM
Hrisvalar: *smiling* what about Katarian chocolate soufflé?
*Transporter room 3*
Chief Vado is watching as the party of the Mead transports over. An tall man with steel blue eyes and a grim complexion stands before her giving her a cold smile that doesn't extend to his eyes. Next to him a small Tellarite woman, her pig eyes surveying the room with an almost maniac intent.
Vado: Captain Saffin and commander Kreg, commander Melena is waiting for you in the observation lounge if you follow me.
Saffin: Why isn't she here herself to great me?
Vado: I'm sure she has a good reason sir.
Saffin: Note the lack of proper protocol no wonder this ship is going to the dogs.
Kreg: *laughing* I'm sure once you file your findings sir this crew will be found unfit to scrape plasma manyfolds.
Vado ignores the two officers comments but feels a stab of anger surging through her, how dare they.
30th Mar 2008, 4:27 AM
Kimble: I'll get it...
Richie stoops to retrieve the pip while simultaniously running a hand through his hair to smooth it out.
Kimble: Here. *reaches to replace the pip* Its about the Kishyenas, most likely. What else have we done in the past twenty-four hours to piss someone off...?
Reg returns the smile with a tilt of the head.
Barclay: Is that a promise, Kezi?
30th Mar 2008, 6:18 AM
Sharpp is startled by the aenar who suddenly stuck the PADD under his nose. He looks up at Archer in a disapproving and annoyed manner before pulling the information out of his hand and looking over it himself.
Sharpp: What do you want me to say, counselor? This is most unusual... I've never seen anything quite like this and can't even come close to identifying this mystery brainwave patron without further information. I would probably be able to give you a more difinitive answer if I ran some more tests. *sarcastically* Or perhaps you should just use your telepathic abilities on Thellin and try to decide for yourself. Afterall, it only caused excrutiating pain and brain damage to the last officer.
He slides the PADD to the other end of the counter and attempts to get back to work. He really was honest about things. It wasn't that he was uninterested in the brainwaves of the andorian officer. Sharpp enjoys a good mystery as much as the next scientist, but he really can not give a conclusive answer from such limited information. If they wanted to identify this, they would likely need to do quite a bit more testing.
Dr. Lennox was forced to cut his meal with Katian short and report to the observation lounge, for what he considers to be a completly arbitrary meeting with the senior staff of the SS Mead. It is times like this when the android seriously considers why he ever chose the lifestyle of a Starfleet officer to begin with. He can handle the violence, war, conspiracy, and grueling hours in sickbay. But staff meetings is what he dreads the most.
Kezi: Yes *smiles* in every sense of the word... Oh, we're almost home! I'm actually glad to be back, I just hope they don't have a morgue full of bodies waiting for me. *opens comm line* Ensign Kezi to Maverick Dockingbay, requesting permission to dock.
Docking Bay Permission pending identity verification, please hold, Vortikan Vessel.
30th Mar 2008, 6:31 AM
The Maverick loomed in the distance on the viewscreen. Reg stood beside Kezi as they waited for docking clearance, glad to have something to distract from the previous topic.
Barclay: If we d-don't have much to catch up on... I'd like t-to go over the specs of this shuttle together. M-maybe do some renovations...
30th Mar 2008, 6:59 AM
Kezi: Rennovations? That would be nice. I want fuzzy purple striped seats and a better communication system. This thing seems to pick up a lot of static. Of course, we should name it, too. For some reason my aunt never did.
Docking Bay: Vortikan Vessel, you are cleared for docking. Welcome back.
30th Mar 2008, 7:07 AM
Barclay: *smiles softly* Is there a w-word in Vortikan to match how beautiful you are...?
Docking Bay: *over comm* I'm sorry Vortikan Vessel, we didn't catch that...
Barclay: Oh... *blushes deeply* I... Uh, j-just said 'g-glad to be b-back, M-maverick...'
Docking Bay: Bay Two has been cleared for you. See you back on board.
30th Mar 2008, 1:52 PM
NCO Archer gives Lt.jg. Sharpp a curious look with his death eyes for a moment it seems he's considering reading Sharpp's mind. He feels insulted by the lieutenant's remarks.
Archer: It's unethical for me to read somebodies mind without consent sir, I would never dream of committing such a gross violation. I just wanted to know if this brain could be the result of some sort of mutation.
Tahlandi: Sorry to bother you sir, we need more research if you find a moment we would like your opinion *gives Archer the back of sorta look* Next time you feel like bothering other officer let me know will you
Archer: I'm just trying to be thourough. He seems unwilling to help
Tahlandi: Well how is he suppossed to help with such incomplete data, just exercise patient. I going to sickbay care to join me.
Woods: Ah commander sh'Raazh what's going on ma'am?
30th Mar 2008, 3:25 PM
At that moment, Melena arrived with Hal, who for once did not have Kira tailing him, and noticed that Vado had jumped the gun a little and transported the Mead team over a little early. The commader had almost forgotten the correct procadure for greeting guests, but she was new at this after all. She looked over at the two new officers and looked at Hal before fixing her most gracious smile.
Melena: Captain Saffin, commander Kreg, welcome to the Maverik. I apoligise for not being present during your transport but I was enquiring on the condition of Captain Patton. Neither she nor our science officer will be attending but they send their kindest regards. Shall we make our way to the Observation Lounge?
Hal found himself surveying the two Mead crewmen and formed an instant dislike. Still, first impressions could often be deceiving but the bajoran often found that his were usually right. He followed the officers from the transporter room, nodding in acknowledgement to the transporter chief on his way out.
Zan: Sounds good to me, I do have quite the sweet tooth you know. I hear there's a meeting with the senior staff and the Mead crew. I've never met Captain Saffin but Yulia had the displeasure of doing so. Wouldn't you love to be a fly on the wall huh?
30th Mar 2008, 3:36 PM
sh'Raazh: *gruffly* probably something about the Kisheyan incident earlier.
Hrisvalar: Maybe, *signals a waiter* but than again I'm glad I'm not senior staff I'd probably chock under this kind of scrutiny.
Kreg: Well it gave us time to asses how this ship is run *sarcastic*
Saffin: Well appartantly protocol isn't completely lost on this ship. Why isn't your CSO joining us, he wasn't seriously wounded I hope or did he defect to the Kisheyans? It seems this crew has a problem with the concept of loyality.
30th Mar 2008, 5:19 PM
Sharpp just shakes his head as the two officers leave the lab. He is more than willing to analyze the andorians neurological patterns, but he is still rather irritated that the counselor seemed to expect him to pull answers out of thin air. Scientific process simply doesn't work that way.
That being said, he puts down his work as he remembers that he is supposed to be in the observation lounge, as he is currently the acting chief science officer.
Dr. Lennox and Lt. JG Sharpp enter the room around the same time. The familiar conference table's seats quickly being filled.
Lennox: Ah, Mister Sharpp, I didn't expect to see you here. I was told that Riddle left sickbay, I assumed that he would try to go back on duty.
Sharpp: Unfortunately not... He's sleeping in his office.
The two take a seat at the table without further conversation, awaiting the beginning of the meeting.
Kezi pilots the small vessel into the docking bay. For such a bleakly furnished ship, its maneuveribility was really quite efficient
At last, the viechle comes to a rest and Kezi stands from her seat, smiling over at Barclay.
Kezi: I don't know about that, but I am sure we can think of something fitting.
30th Mar 2008, 5:20 PM
Melena felt a stab of annoyance at the pairs sarcastic remarks but decided to hide behind a mask of professionalism for now and gestured to the apparently invisible CSO walking alongside them, ignoring the snide remark about loyalty for the time being as they approached the turbo lift.
Melena: This is Lt. Cmdr. Hal, our Chief security officer. I trust yours will not be present? (gesturing to lift door) After you captain, lietenant.
Zan: Tell me about it, I do have Yulia's memories of being a CSO back on the Athena and she had a pretty rough time of it. She always seemed to be coping on the outside, I always thought she was worse than a vulcan so it's no wonder she married one! The good thing about being joined is you get to know a hell of a lot of secrets! (to waiter) Two Ktarian Chocoalte Souffle's please.
30th Mar 2008, 5:39 PM
Saffin: No our security chief is making sure those things don't pose any more problems. Tell me Lt.cmdr. Hal how is it that your captain almost died under your watch. If my security chief showed such incompetence I'd demote him to scrubbing toilets.
Saron waltz into Ten Forward looking for Kish, it takes a while but finaly she spots the Ferengi woman.
Saron: Kish I need a favor.
Imura takes a sip of sake before responding.
Hrisvalar: I can only image, so what dark secrets have you *teasing*
30th Mar 2008, 5:55 PM
Eloran wasn't sure whether to be glad that he was finally being acknowledged or to wish that he hadn't shown up at all. He was about to reply when Melena stepped in.
Melena: There was a device used in the incident that prevented any movement until it was too late to act. All will be explained in good time but I would appreciate it if you would refrain from making personal comments without knowing the facts captain (turbo lift stops) Now if you kindly allow us to lead you to the Observation Lounge, the attending staff should be already present.
Raian grinned and leaned forward in his seat so that he was almost touching Imaru's antennae.
Zan: (teasing) Not telling! Give me a few andorian ales and maybe you'll just say get lucky.
Just then, a group of cadets entered, one of them being instantly recognised by the trill ensign. He gulped at the sight of his former hosts daughter and sharply looked away back into the eyes of his andorian lover.
Zan:Th-thats T'rei, my daughter, I mean Yulia's daughter. I didn't realise that she was still here and I was kinda hoping not to meet. hopefully she doesn't know who I am or things could get a little awkward.
30th Mar 2008, 6:07 PM
Imura turns her head and sees the girl, a Trill/Vulcan hybrid. She turns back to Raian a little unsure what to say. She gently caress his hand.
Hrisvalar: Do you want to go? Maybe a stroll in the arboretum or do you want to stay and talk to her?
Freezal notices Raian and Imura and pokes Kheyl.
Freezal: Isn't that Zan's new host?
Kheyl: Yep, maybe we should distract T'rei.
Freezal: T'rei let's order something nutritious if we let the guys do it we probably end up with junk food.
Saffin: Yes I'm sure we will get to the bottom of this. One of your crew, an ensign Dudemeister has send me an interesting report, did you know one of your own crew is a Kisheyan Android or did your chief engineer forget to mention this little titbit?
30th Mar 2008, 6:20 PM
Melena rolled her eyes at the mention of Ensign Dudemeister but found herself anything but surprised. The thought of asking the captain if he would like to keep the annoying human crossed her mind but she thought better of it. Instead, she continued walking as she responded.
Melena: If you are referring to Lt. Stitch, I was made aware but he is a capable officer no matter who or what he is. We're here anyway, if you would like to enter.
As she entered behind the Mead crewmen, she found it hard to disguise the pinkish green tinge on her cheeks. The orion hybrid just hoped that they could get through this meeting without the good captain receiving the smack in the mouth he so deserved. She looked around at the gathered senior staff and noticed that Sharpp was taking the place of Riddle. Suddenly that smack in the mouth seemed all the more inevitable as she sat at the table to begin.
Raian shakes his head and smiles weakly.
Zan: Nah, no use running away right? (jokingly) Besides, I'm looking forward to the souffle so it'd be a shame to run off now.
T'rei meanwhile hadn't noticed the trill as of yet and turned to Freezal with a nod.
T'rei: Indeed, in fact last time we ended up with gagh, if my memory serves me correctly (looks at Kheyl) and the time before that it was 'burgers and chips'.
30th Mar 2008, 6:33 PM
((ooc: LOL yep he certainly deserves a good trashing))
Saffin: I see that even the unworthy can become senior staff on this ship *looking at Sharpp and Lennox* I wonder why Star Fleet insist on treating walking and talking machines as sentient beings. *sits down*
sh'Raazh gives the two officers of the Mead a dirty look and clinches her fists but remains mute for now. She looks at doctor Lennox but the android doctor seems unfased by the comment directed at him but than again he rarely showed emotions.
Kheyl: Gagh isn't junkfood it's a Klingon delicatessen.
Freezal: Yes Kheyl but most of us like our food cooked.
Tobias: You two have no taste in food
Freezal: Oh please don't let me upset your delicate pallet.
Hrisvalar: Yes you are right, oh mmmmh look Jaden is bringing us the soufflés. Thanks Jaden. *takes a bite* Isn't this confusing I mean she is and isn't your daughter at the same time how do you deal with that?
((ooc: nice a new counselor))
30th Mar 2008, 6:57 PM
Name and Rank: Lt. JG. Mizuki Azuma
Species/Homeworld: Human/Andorian, Earth
A brief sentence or two describing your personality: Sweet natured and softly spoken, Mizuki is also a good listener and thrives on helping those in need. She can be firm when need be but likes to avoid confrontation.
30th Mar 2008, 7:10 PM
*OOC* Definately, lol. See you later anyway!
As Melena went on to debrief Captain Saffin on the situation, she noticed that he looked less than impressed but she would have loved to have seen how he would have handled the situation. She left no detail out as she did not believe in hiding facts and when she came to a finish, she looked over to the rest of the crew.
Melena: Is there anything else anyone would like to add? What was our final casualty report Dr. Lennox?
T'rei: I can appreciate that Kheyl, but I have a personal preferrance over food that is no longer living. What should we have then Freezal? Perhaps a salad of some sort to compensate for all of the burgers and live food, both of which I should not have eaten as a vulcan.
Zan:It's no big really, I just try to avoid uncomfortble situations. Thanks Jaden! Sure looks good huh? Well, time to tuck in!
30th Mar 2008, 7:13 PM
Counselors Mar'qet, Holly and Azuma are having a round table discussing about the psychological needs of the crew and the absences of counselor D'ar.
Mar'qet: Do we have any word on when counselor D'ar is going to back? And where is Archer anyway?
Holly: No she is still on Trill and so far I know she is set to return in two weeks. NCO Archer is working with Tahlandi. Do you have anything to report Azuma? How are your sessions going with our youngest crew member?
Liliaceae storms in looking a little confused.
Liliaceae: Sorry I was hold up.
Freezal: Yes a salad sounds nice
Tobias: You do realize that Catians are a carnivorious species.
Freezal: You'll survive a salad Tobias.
Hrisvalar: Well you handle it better than I would.
30th Mar 2008, 8:22 PM
Kish is somewhat supprised to see Saron at this paticular moment. She finishes wiping off the bar and then steps around it so they can speak face to face.
Kish: What can I do for you, Saron? Business, I hope.
Lennox: Four, one kisheyan android dead in the struggle, one kisheyan android injured, and two of our crew injured.
31st Mar 2008, 12:26 AM
Melena: I see, it could have been worse I suppose. Is there anything else regarding this matter that needs bringing to our attention? Do you have any questions or anything that needs to be brought up Captain?
T'rei frowned at Tobias' reminder but grinned again at Freezals comment before joining in the teasing.
T'rei: I very much doubt that klingons are fond of vegtables either but I suppose we could always have meat salad. Of course, you could have burgers again but us ladies have had about enough. All of this junk doesn't seem to be agreeing with my waistline, if you know what I mean.
Zan: Thanks, I try my best. What do you think of the souffle anyway? You know if theres time we can still go for that walk if you like?
Azuma: Actually I am yet to have the pleasure of meeting little Hakeem, I've only just finished reading his file. Our first appointment is on half an hour so I need to review the file once more before he arrives with his carer. Oh, hello Liliaceae. Don't worry you haven't really missed anything, in fact I should probably be going now. May I be excused?
31st Mar 2008, 12:26 AM
Saron: If you play your cards right *smiling* I need information and lets just say I can't use the standard communications. Do you recognize this *shows a piece of metal with Orion writing* I took it from one of the Kisheyan androids. I need to get in contact with the black market, name your price.
Freezal: Well I feel like some fruit salade the boys can always order the meat and some mighty ale but I agree with T'rei I gained a kilo in three days time (ooc: seeing I'm European mainlander I'm not familiar with pounds and such)
Hrisvalar: It's the best I've ever had but a walk sounds nice
Saffin: *ignoring Melena* I'm sure the commander meant living beings not those toys, doctor. But seeing you are nothing more than a machine it's to be expected you'll get your priorities messed up.
sh'Raazh rises form her seat absolutely steaming.
sh'Raazh: No offense captain but you could show some respect to Doctor Lennox and shove that racist attitude up your ass will you.
Saffin: Commander please keep your subordinates in line *smiling*
Holly: Yes of course Azuma, Mar'qet I need your opinion on this paper.
Liliaceae: Azuma if you have a moment after your session with Hakeem I'd like to discuss the new personality test with you and the rest of the staff.
31st Mar 2008, 12:38 AM
Melena kept a neutral expression as sh'Raazh rose to the bait and gave the captain a piece of her mind. Whilst she found herself secretly pleased that somebody was attempting to put the bastard in his place, she knew that if not nipped in the bud there could be a serious problem. She looked at the andorian officer with a reassuring expression before speaking soflty to her before taking a harsher tone with the good captain.
Melena: Please sit down lietenant. Captain, I would appreciate it if you would treat the officers under my command with respect and at least try and act professionally. People are people whether or not they are human, android or otherwise. Now that that is hopefully resolved, are there any others matters to discuss? I assume there was a reason to your visit other than to belittle our ship and crew?
Azuma: No problem, the appointment is scheduled to last up to an hour but children rarely sit that long do they? I just remembered that I'm supposed to be at Nurse Lancaster's quarters to meet Hakeem. Excuse me.
31st Mar 2008, 12:47 AM
Saffin gives the commander a frozen smile clearly he doesn't like to be put in his place. His eyes are narrow and the dumb grin on Kreg's face has disappeared altogether. The tension is almost palpable.
Saffin: *his face close to commander Melena* No I've got what I came for, but rest assured that I will see this ship and crew decommissioned. Commander Kreg let's return to our ship and transport the filth this inept bastards have created.
With an air of superiority Saffin leaves the observation lounge.
Hakeem is reading a PADD that contains an ancient earth fairytale know as The Wizard of Oz. Janice is cleaning up her quarters and hopes that the new counselor will have better luck penetrating the shields that Hakeem has errected around himself.
31st Mar 2008, 1:07 AM
Melena looked on wide eyed as the captain left in what she preumed to be a huff. She nodded at Hal, who stood up to escort their guests back to the transporter room. She then looked back at the rest of the crew before smiling a little too sweetly and acting as though nothing had happened.
Melena: Anything else or are we done here?
Mizuki came to a stop outside Nurse Lancaster's quarters and sighed. After reading Hakeem's file, she had come to the conclusion that this would be a difficult case. This was of course usually the case with children although it depended on the individual and the experiences held. She pressed the buzzer on the door and waited for a reply.
31st Mar 2008, 3:59 AM
Richie, who had been holding Tara's hand under the table, takes the opptunity to stand and voice his opinons.
Lt. Kimble: Commander, are we gonna let those self-righteous ass wipes treat us like that?! They have no rights to act like that!
31st Mar 2008, 8:17 AM
Lennox stands up an looks at all of the remaining people in the room.
Lennox: No, Lieutenant Kimble. This is not over. I do not trust that individual to return those androids safely to federation territory- he could barely sit in the same room with me. There are lives at stake here.
Lennox walks out of the observation lounge without saying anything else, he heads to the transporter room.
Lennox: *hits comm badge* Lennox to transporter room, do NOT let the Mead crew leave yet. I will be meeting them there momentarily.
Kish takes the piece of metal and holds it to the light as if it were a precious jewel.
Kish: Ahh yes, I have seen things like this... Four hundred bars of gold pressed latinum. No less.
1st Apr 2008, 12:52 AM
Saron: Well the only thing I have is this rare Klingon artifact *shows an ancient talisman* It belonged to Krevor a legendary warrior. On the black market it will sell easily for five or six hundred bars of gold pressed latinum. Will that suffice?
Saron once again tries to persuade the Ferengi woman in helping her but she can't keep paying her but than again Ferengi aren't known to lend a helping hand without proper finance but if she keeps this up all what she acquired during her freetrading days will soon be gone.
Lancaster: come in, oh hello Mizuki, Hakeem come and say hello to Mizuki
Hakeem gives the Andorian counselor a quizzically look before returning to his PADD. He softly hums an African nursery rhyme, something he did when he felt nervous.
*Transporter room 3*
Saffin: *furious* how do you mean you have orders to keep us here move away stupid woman *shoves Vado aside*
Vado: Sir I'm under orders maybe ...
Kreg: from whom
Vado: Doctor Lennox
Saffin: That toy with illusions of grandeur
Vado: *under her breath* look who's talking *addressing cpt. Saffin* Sir, the doctor is senior staff on this ship. It's probably important as soon as this is cleared up I'll transport you to the Mead.
Saffin: You will do it now. Dammit woman you looked me out of transporter control.
Vado: You'll have to wait for the doctor so take a seat.
Kreg: We'll have your commission for this, you'll never serve in Star Fleet again *hysterical with anger*.
Vado: *unimpressed* Yes yes but you'll still have to wait.
1st Apr 2008, 2:01 AM
*Transporter Room 3*
Lennox walks into the transporter room just as Kreg made his last idle threat.
Lennox: *sarcastically polite* Sorry to have kept you all waiting. I am here to inquire about your plans for the androids once you return to the Mead.
Kish looks at the small talisman, and finally shoves it in her pocket.
Kish: It appears to be genuine... I prefer cash- but since I like you, I will let it slide. This time, at least.
1st Apr 2008, 3:23 AM
Barclay: W-well... Either way, a Vortikan n-name would be fitting...
The bay doors slid open and Ensign Dudemeister walked through with an Engineering kit. He spotted Broccoli and the Vorta slut chatting outside a damn ugly garbage scowl of a ship.
Ensign Dudemeister: *sarcastic, smirking* Sir... Have a nice statutory honeymoon...?
1st Apr 2008, 3:40 AM
Name and Rank: Cadet First Class Ryxor N'vek
Species/Homeworld: romulan/trill, Farius Prime
Position: Psychology Student
A brief sentence or two describing your personality: N'vek has never really fit in due to his evident romulan heritage. He was raised on the somewhat crime ridden and culturally diverse planet of Farius Prime by his romulan mother. He is absolutely fascinated by psychology and is studying to become an exo-psychologist.
1st Apr 2008, 6:19 AM
Kezi snarls and lets out a high pitched growl at Dudemeisters remark to Barclay.
Kezi: How dare you show such insubordinance, kurvil'nok! You're lucky I don't crush you chest cavity!
1st Apr 2008, 6:46 AM
Ensign Dudemeister: *guffaws* Yeah... Like you could, you Dominon b*tch. Oh, that's right! You fight all of your human's battles...
Barclay: L-l-leave her alone...
Ensign Dudemeister: *lowers voice* Though... I suppose even this old b*stard would be a step up from the Founder crap you crawled out of. Tell me? What number clone are you...?
Barclay: *louder* I said to leave Kezi alone, Ensign!
Ensign Dudemeister: Or f***ing what?! You'll hit me...?
Dudemeister laughed louder as he pushed Barclay against the hull of their shuttle, knocking the air out of the man's lungs. He turned back to Kezi...
Ensign Dudemeister: Well, well well... *chuckles* Where are your f***ing Founder gods no--
The Ensign is interruped by Barclay's fist coliding with his jaw.
Barclay: *furious* Shut the f**k up!
1st Apr 2008, 6:57 AM
Dudemeister is knocked back a good three meters. He rubs his jaw and stares at Barclay with disgust before lunging back at his superior officer. In one swift move, both men are in the floor and Dudemeister is raining in blows to Reg's face.
Dudemeister: You little bitch! You can't even fight to protect your little kid girlfriend!
Kezi: Gurrhk dun ker'vaqt!
Kezi practically climbs on Dudemeisters back and pulls him off of Barclay, flinging him into the wall with surprising strength. Dudemeister returns the favor by punching her in the face with all his stregnth. A stream of purple blood is flinged across the floor.
1st Apr 2008, 7:18 AM
Barclay pulls himself to his knees in time to see Dudemeister strike Kezi. His blood begins to boil as he pulls himself up and throws himself at the assliant.
Barclay: NOOOO! *strikes Dudemeister across the back*
Ensign Dudemeister: Ah! You f**k!
The blow puts Dudemeister on the ground, but still offensive as he kicks the legs out from Barclay, causing the Lieutenant to strike his head on the dura-steel. By this time, a security team bursts into the room.
Ensign Joran: *drawing out his phaser* Everyone stay where you are!
Ensign Dudemeister: G*d-dammit! These crazies attacked me!
1st Apr 2008, 8:57 PM
((ooc: Spiderviveka is it okay with you if your new character Ryxor N'vek is related in some way to Jerrod Tigan?))
Tigan: Dad what's going on? Ma send me a message that the Romulans have severed diplomatic relations with the Federation for the time being and that they are holding raids against civilians with ties to the Federation.
His dad: Yes son, all Federation diplomats have been recalled and the reports that are coming in from the Empire are bleak. Your mother is trying to secure her family I haven't heard from her in three days *worried* What's also troubeling is that several central genetic databases on Romulus have been compromised. The Romulan procouncel has denied this but intelligence reports indicate that almost 58% of their database has been stolen.
Tigan: You mean the Romulan gouverment is losing it's grip on its citizens.
Dad: No idea but the if Tial Shiar is losing it's grip the results could be devistating. Ever since the crackdown on Promethea the Romulans have begon to isolate themselves again.
Tigan: Do you have any idea where mom is going?
Dad: You know your mother it's not like she is going to tell me anything son. Just promise me you won't go on a wild goose chase after her.
Saron: Thanks Kish be careful.
*Transporter Room 3*
Saffin: Doctor it's not your concern but they will be treated as any other prisoner under Federation law. But if I had my way you and the whole bunch would be deactivated and dismantled *walks towards the doctor* As long I wear this uniform I can't hurt you or your toy friends just pray I never take it of.
Lancaster: Hakeem this nice lady wants to talk to you.
The child seems decided to ignore the new counselor.
1st Apr 2008, 10:44 PM
Lt. Shrall: Ensign Joran, Morganth, take Lieutenant Barclay and Ensign Dudemeister into custody and drag them to the Brig. Ensign Kezi, your file says you are pregnant? I will escort you to Sickbay, if you check out then you can join them in Security. Consider it an order, Ensign...
Joran and Morganth nod once before each picked up the combatants and hauled then to their feet.
2nd Apr 2008, 12:11 AM
*Transporter Room 3*
At the conclusion of the meeting, Melena had followed Lennox to the transporter room with Hal. They overheard the last part of the conversation and the green skinned commander stepped forward and put a hand on Lennox's shoulder whilst addressing Captain Saffin.
Melena: I am sure they will be taken care of as best as federation policy will allow. I have composed and transmitted a full report to starfleet command, after which it is out of our hands. I think we may allow our guests to leave now, Chief Vado (quietly so that only Vado could hear) before we have any more problems.
*Nurse Lancaster's Quarters*
Azuma: Hello Hakeem. Before I jump straight in, may I call you Janice? Anyway, I would like to talk to you first about Hakeem, if thats alright of course. I've read the file but I would like to hear from your perspective.
As T'rei began eating her salad, she noticed that her classmates seemed rather quiet and that the kept glancing around. She had an idea what was wrong as she had already noticed the latest Trill to be known as Zan but was attempting to ignore this fact. In order to attempt to make conversation, she looked over to her distracted classmates.
T'rei: Has anyone seen Ryxor, I notice that he is not joining us today? I wonder if he too has received comments about the fact that we are supposedly siblings. Obviously this is not the case as I am half vulcan and he is half romulan, I believe. It is growing somewhat tiresome.
2nd Apr 2008, 12:20 AM
*Transporter Room 3*
Vado: Aye ma'am
The two Mead officer quickly disappear when over the com system the latest little incident involving Dudemeister is announced.
Officer: Lt.cmdr. Hal please report to the brig their was an incident in the docking bay involving a physical altercation between three officers.
Vado: Ma'am I know this is a bad time and all but I will launching a formal complaint against Cpt. Saffin and cmdr. Kreg.
Lancaster: Yes that'll be okay.
Hakeem looks a little bewildered at the straight forward manner of Azuma, he doesn't really understand what she means and he shuffles closer to his caregiver.
Hakeem: what's a perspective?
2nd Apr 2008, 12:35 AM
*Transporter Room 3*
A look of relief spread across Melena's face as the less than friendly Mead crewman faded away. She looked over at Vado and nodded in understanding.
Melena: Yes, they were hardly the most friendly or even professional of people. Did something happen here chief that I should be aware of? I may be filing my own complaint and perhaps I could add that to the list
As the communication came through, Hal found himself rolling his eyes as he tapped his badge in reply.
Hal: On my way. If I may be excused commander.
Melena: Of course, I hope no-one was seriously hurt.
Hal: As do I, excuse me commander, chief.
With that he left for secuity wondering who had been involved in the latest scuffle.
*Nurse Lancasters Quarters*
Mizuki looked down at Hakeem and smiled before leaning downward.
Azuma: It means a point of view, or how you see things. I would like to be your friend Hakeem, so we can do fun things together and make you feel better. I apoligise for my bluntness Janice, thats not like me at all. Anyway, I'm here now to say hello and to talk to you and Janice.
The Andorian hybrid hoped that she could indeed win the little boys trust and she had planned some 'fun' sessions to allow her to perform a personality test, among other things, but first she would like to talk to Janice in order gain a clearer picture of what she was getting herself into. Clients were more than names on PADDs after all.
2nd Apr 2008, 12:49 AM
Vado: He practically assaulted me *shows a large bruise*
Lt. Dammou: Ensign Joran, Morganth please put those gentlemen in separate cells. I'll notify their direct superior Lt. Woods.
Hakeem: Can we play kadis-kot? Janice always loses
Hakeem doesn't completely understand what the counselor is talking about but the prospect of fun is alluring to the young boy. He looks over at Janice his face lit up with excitment.
3rd Apr 2008, 9:00 AM
((OOC: Thats fine with me, motom.))
*Transporter Room 3*
Lennox: *sarcastically* And I am most frieghtened of you, captain. Your
Lennox watches the crew of the Mead vanish into thin air. His face remains ever placid and calm, but inside, he knows he can not trust this Captain Saffin. Still, there is a strange aura of intensity radiating from the android as he heads for the exit.
Lennox: Good day to all of you.
Kezi sits on a biobed, absolutely fuming with rage. She even went so far as to growl at a nurse and knock a tray of medication from their hand. At last, she is greeted by the strange Dr. Nexa, who managed to forcer her way into having medical authority aboard the ship.
Nexa: Well, it says that you are in the first trimester of your pregnancy still?
Kezi: Yes. Tell me, doctor, why do so many civilized cultures insist on treating pregnancy as an illness? I should be in the brig along side my mate! Besides, his injures were far more severe than mine!
Nexa: I don't know ensign. Perhaps you should take that up with security, I can't treat people who aren't my patients, if you know what I mean. But, you have a hairline fracture in your jaw, as well as some nasty lacerations to the inside of your mouth. Nothing a good treatment from the hypo spanner can't take care of.
N'vek enters ten forward, somewhat annoyed by the inferences by many of the staff that he was T'rei's brother. He finally finds the table where his fellow cadets are seated and pulls up a chair, giving a nervous glance to T'rei before speaking.
N'vek: Hi everyone, whats up?
*Docking Bay 1*
Lennox enters the docking bay and spots a shuttle in a darkened corner of the room. The Shuttlecraft Kafka. He manages to sneak on board without notice. He sits at the pilots seat and begins the ignition process.
Lennox: *in Patton's voice* Computer, override all security access, set security access code to AB34NFO403MF9324N8FFF8352649W84395TEWR95800K3K9D8D74H6F22D8G0H84H3GF742F83W23HF831FJLNBBVWEFH32X0110987683456HBHKHJQOUWTXBGHJH93.
After that, it was quite easy to gain access of the shuttlebay doors and launch the shuttle. he could see in his pereferial vision out of the glass of the shuttle, the engineers working feverishly to stop the unauthorized exit, but at last he made it free of the ship and into space. He sets in a pursuit course to follow the Mead.
3rd Apr 2008, 9:12 AM
Joran pushed the uncoopertative Dudemeister in the first open cell. He had been yelling and complaining the entire time that he had done nothing. It looked quite the opposite. Why hadn't Lt. Shrall had not sent Barclay to Sickbay with the Ensign? Sure, the Andorian was tough but...
Ensign Morganth: Lyar, could you give me a hand? *grunts* He's heavier than he looks...
Barclay was not able to walk under his own power, so the Betazoid had to practially drag him along. Joran quickly took the other arm.
Ensign Joran: This is ridiculous! He needs medical attention...
Ensign Morganth: Orders are orders... Set him down here.
Ensign Joran: Forget command... *taps combadge* Security to Sickbay, I need a medical officer down in the Brig...
3rd Apr 2008, 9:47 AM
A short time later, Dr. Nixis escorts Kezi to the brig. Ensign Dammers leads the still rather angry vorta into a cell as Nexa goes to inspect Reg.
Nexa: My demon! He is going into hypopurfusion, why did anyone not call for our assistance sooner?
Kezi: Damn it! Whats wrong with him! Let me be with him- please! He is the father of my child! I will kill that pathetic kurvil'nok that has harmed him!
3rd Apr 2008, 9:56 AM
Ensign Dudemeister: *mutters* Doesn't she ever shut up...
Ensign Joran: We were ordered to bring him here. Lieutenant Shrall wanted to contain the incident first... I knew it was a bad idea...
3rd Apr 2008, 10:03 AM
Nexa looks around the brig briefly, her tail twitching and swaying behind her as she makes eye contact with Dudemeister. She had had a previous encounter with the ensign, in the mess hall, where he had asked her if someone had "forgotten to put out the rat poison".
Nexa: I understand Ensign Joran, we are all bound by our orders. *hits comm badge* Dr. Nexa to transporter room, two to beam to sickbay.
*transporter room* I'm sorry, I don't know of any Dr. Nexa's-
Nexa: *emits an audible squeek* Damn it, beam us to sickbay now! I had this approved by the CMO!
*transporter room* Aye, doctor, we are beaming you to sickbay. Locking onto lifesigns.
4th Apr 2008, 1:11 AM
Lt. Woods enters the brig feeling an immense anger coming over him as he spots ensign Dudemeister in one of the cells.
Woods: What happened?
Dammou: There was an altercation between ensigns Dudemeister, Kezi and Lt. Barclay. The lieutenant is in critical condition.
Woods: I see *walks to Dudemeister* Ensign I want an explanation and don't try to feed my any of your lies because I'll personally blow you out of an airlock. Start talking now. I want to know how one of your superior officer ends up in sickbay.
Woods is towering physic and deranged eyes make even the security officers cower a little, ensign Dudemeister just opens and closes his mouth like a fish on dry ground contemplating how he can sneak his way out of this tight spot.
Woods: Well I'm waiting, fine if you have nothing to say for yourself than I will tell you this, I hereby demote you to crewman, you are striped of all privileges and you will not be working in engineering anymore pending the investigation.
Freezal: Oh hello N'vek is Dudemeister still insisting on calling you the spawn of Zan. Please don't mind him he's an idiot.
Tobias: Well the girls *points at Freezal and T'rei* are putting us on a diet.
Kheyl: *low but friendly growl* Just be glad that idiot doesn't realize you're half Romulan or he'll give you hell. I don't understand how such a dumb and blatant racist made it through the academy.
At that moment a flustered looking Tigan enters Ten Forward, all color is drained from his complexion even his spots have gone pale. He walks towards N'vek a strange look is upon the Trill/Romulan/Bajoran hybrid's face.
Tigan: N'vek can we talk in private?
Tigan doesn't want to alarm the teenager but he also doesn't want to hide the truth from him. What his father has told him is disturbing and if his young nephew's mother is really on Romulus, she probably has been deported to one of the Romulan detetion centers. He just hopes his gut feeling is wrong.
Officer: Sir a Federation shuttle is following us.
Saffin: Hail them
Kreg: No response, sir there are no lifesigns *leans in* It's the android doctor.
Saffin: Lt. Hudak destroy that shuttle
Saffin: you heard me arm a photon torpedo and blast that damn thing out of the sky.
Hudak: Sir this is a Federation shuttle and poses no threat
Saffin: Are you questioning me, commander Kreg take Lt. Hudak in custody. Lt. Pjetrov take Lt. Hudak's position and blast that damn vessel to smithereens.If anybody else has a problem with my orders, they can join Lt. Hudak in the brig.
Pjetrov: No sir I will not.
All the officers of the Mead are standing up in a combined mutany against their increasingly irratic captain, only his beloved Kreg stands by her man and captain.
Saffin: Fine I'll have you all court martialed this is treason.
((ooc: feel free to use my characters if needed))
4th Apr 2008, 6:57 AM
Lennox works to break through the Mead's shields. Sensors show him that the androids are currently in the vessel's brig. He could beam them all out within a matter of five, maybe ten seconds at most. They hail the shuttle and he ignores it, knowing that listening to their petty threats would only be a waste of everyone's time.
Kezi punches the forcefield with a tightly clenched fist. Her furiosity boiling out from under the surface, a result of her already volatile homonal state and being caught in such an unfortunate situation. As if she didn't have enough to think about, what with her entire family, save her aunt and grandmother, disowning her.
Kezi: If anything happens to him, human- if anything happens at all I will break your neck with my bare hands!
N'vek: Yes, sir, by all means.
N'vek frowns as he stands and follows Tigan. He doesn't know what the trill officer could possibly want to talk to him about, but judging from his expression it was nothing good. He had been aware of his relation to Tigan for some time, but had never really gotten to know the man personally. His relation with his fathers side of the family was always rather spotty, especially after his father left his mother with a two year old child to care for, all so he could run off with some Alkanian dabo girl.
Still, N'vek held nothing against his fathers family, or even his father anymore. He had had a good upbringing and held very few grudges.
4th Apr 2008, 2:56 PM
By this time, Melena had returned to the bridge and had just found herself imagining the next thing that could go wrong when of her fellow officers looked quizzically at his station before addressing his commanding officer.
Operations:[B] Sir, an unauthorised launch has occured in Docking Bay 1. It's the Kafka.
[B]Melena: (sarcastic)Wonderful! Lifesigns?
Operations: None, although I'm picking up a positronic signature.
Melena: Positronic...Lennox. Open a hailing frequency. Maverik to shuttlecraft Kafka. Kafka, please respond.
Communications: No response.
Melena: Initiate a tractor beam.
Tactical: (shakes head)We're out of range.
Melena: Damnit Lennox. Pursuit Course, do we have any idea where he's headed?
Operations: I'm detecting a federation vessel close to the shuttles present location. it's the Mead.
Melena: I suppose that should have been obvious.
Hal entered, once again followed by his trusty canine companion, and surveyed the situation, having arrived just in time for Woods little tirade that caused even Kira to wimper. Deciding that the newly demoted crewman had been more than adequetly dealt with for now, he turned his attention to the obviously angered Ensign Kezi.
Hal: Please calm down ensign, I assure you that the situation will be dealt with promptly. (to the other officers) Anyone care to fill me in on the details?
4th Apr 2008, 8:03 PM
Tigan: *nervously* I, well it's about, how to put this. N'vek I'm afraid I've got bad news about your mother, I don't know if you are aware of the current political climate in the Romulan Empire. *pauses for a moment* There is a strong anti-federation attitude and everybody who is connected in some way to the Federation is being arrested. Your mother's name was on a list of recent arrests made on one of their off worlds.
((ooc: this information could easily be false))
5th Apr 2008, 5:39 AM
Ensign Dudemeister: Go ahead and try, Dominon scum. You'll be bleeding on the floor before you even touched me!
Ensign Joran: Shut up, Dudemeister...
The forms of Dr. Nexa and Barclay appeared in the middle of Sickbay's floor.
EMH: *running over* What happened?
5th Apr 2008, 6:29 AM
N'veks initial reaction is disbelief. He doesn't understand exactly what Tigan is trying to tell him/
N'vek: What? Why? What would they want with my mother? She's a nurse- she doesn't know anything! She hasn't even lived in Romulan territory in over fifty years! They don't even have jurisdiction on Farius Prime!
Kezi snarls, small strings of saliva stream from between her teeth as she postures towards the forcefield.
Kezi: Ignorant human fool! The Vorta were building starships and performing feats of genetic engineering while your species were still killing eachother with crude, pointed sticks! Its apparent that you have yet to make it over the evolutionary hump!
Nexa furrows her whiskers as she looks up at the rather curious and obnoxious hologram. She is quite a bit smaller than him, like most of her species, probably only a little higher one and a half meters tall.
Nexa: He has was involved in a fight and subsequently, badly beaten. Help me get him on a biobed.
Lennox finally breaks through the Mead's shields, even if briefly. Six androids are energized in the shuttle. They all look very confused, but this is brief because the Mead makes a direct hit on the shuttle, shaking everyone within, Lennox barely able to stay in one spot and attempt a lock on the remaining droids.
Lennox: We're leaking plasma! Quick, anyone who has engineering experience, I need your help!
Miru: Who are you?
Lennox: I'm here to help you, but please, if you don't help we'll all die!
5th Apr 2008, 7:01 AM
EMH: Odd... It never occured to me that Lieutenant Barclay would pick a fight...
The hologram lifts Barclay effortlessly, being that he had all the strength his forcefields could supply, and takes him to the nearest open biobed.[/I]
EMH: Let's see... *scans with a tricorder* Numerous abrasions and contusion, head trama, swelling. No wonder the man is in shock. They did a number on him... I need a fluid regimin and twenty cc's of tri-ox compund.
5th Apr 2008, 7:13 AM
Nexa hesitates, staring at the doctor with a very annoyed expression on her face. She does not like the idea of rankless holograms giving her orders. It was bad enough that she had to listen to starfleet intelligence without all of this. But then she retrieves the necessary medication and hands it to the the doctor, giving an annoyed huffing noise as he takes it from her hand.
Nexa: Do you even need any help, doctor, or do you just enjoy making skilled physicians run errands?
5th Apr 2008, 7:19 AM
The EMH pauses for a moment before only taking the tri-ox.
EMH: Neither, but you were the closest one to the supplies. *injects hypospray* Now, 'Skilled Physician', you may treat him as you wish...
6th Apr 2008, 12:36 AM
Tigan makes a hesitate empathic gesture towards the boy before retrieving. The truth was that he didn't really know his nephew, he only learned of his existence five years ago. His uncle, N'vek's father was something of a rogue and he had severed his ties with his family nearly 30 years ago and only five years ago he contacted them again for reasons that were still unknown to Tigan. Also the fact that he never exchanged more than five words with his nephew before this made the situation even more uneasy on Tigan.
Tigan: Farius Prime? According to my information she left Farius Prime two months ago and traveled to Romulus. Your mother was arrested on Romulus. Do you have any idea why she would go there?
Tigan begins to wonder if the information they have is correct, it wasn't the first time people's identities got mixed up, he himself was a victim of it and it resulted in a major setback in his career plans.
Tigan: Did you have contact with your mother recently N'vek?
sh'Raazh: Commander the Mead is firing at the shuttle Kafka and I'm getting strange erratic lifesigns readings on the Mead something is very wrong commander.
sh'Raazh wonders why captain Saffin and his crew would fire on a shuttlecraft, he wasn't a pleasant man, in fact he was downright nasty but this was crossing a line even for him.
Dammou: *ignoring Dudemeister and Kezi* For what I've gathered there was an altercation between these officers Lt. Shral is examing the logs of the shuttlebay he will be here momentary sir with a full raport.
6th Apr 2008, 9:13 PM
N'vek is shocked to learn that his mother had gone to Romulus. She was a level headed person and would never do something that would put herself in such grave danger- at least, not unless she had a very good reason.
N'vek: What! Thats insane! No, I haven't talked to her since before I left the academy for this mission and everything seemed normal. She wouldn't do something like that, she hates the opressive government on Romulus and everything it stands for! Thats why our family left to begin with. I can't even begin to imagine what would posess her to go there!
Nexa stares at the unconscious Lt. Barclay for a moment before retrieving a hypospanner to repair his more superficial injuries.
Nexa: Well Mr. Barclay, I think you did what every officer on this ship has wanted to do to Dudemeister at one point in time or another- I know I certainly have. I don't normally condone violence, but he had it coming. Good job.
With the assistance of the newly escaped androids, the remaining droids appear on the transporter pad and also seem extremely confused. Everyone is once again shaken as they are hit again with phaser fire from the Mead, destroying the shuttle's shields. Lennox isn't sure why they are shooting at them and why they don't just go ahead and destroy them. There is more firing, but they miss, which is amazing to everyone on the Kafka, because they are attempting to limp out of danger.
6th Apr 2008, 9:38 PM
Science Officer: The shuttle's shields are gone, Commander.
Richie hadn't wanted to return to duty so soon, but now he was glad he did. Someonw had to pull the fat out of the Mead's fire...
Lt. Kimble: Sir, I can get a tractor beam around the Kafka and pull it back before they can destroy it.
Leaving Barclay in what he hoped was capable hands, the EMH returned to check on Patton. She was silent, staring up at the celing.
Patton: Doctor... I think I have some apologizing to do.
EMH: Its all right, Captain. Its quite understandable with... What has happened. I took no offense.
Patton: *chuckled softly* Thank you, Doctor, but you're not the only one I was talking about... Alex didn't deserve that...
EMH: I'm sure he understands, as well. Everyone does...
Patton: *sighs* All the same...
6th Apr 2008, 11:37 PM
*OOC* You'll have to excuse me for not being online much for the past and next few days as I have the cold from hell, lol.
Melena felt her grip tighten on the arms of the captains chair as the situation grew more critical. She couldn't contemplate any reason as to why their colleagues on the Mead would be firing on a federation shuttlecraft anyway. She did however have a pretty good idea as to why they might be a little less than happy right now as she had the distinct feeling that there was probably more than one android on board the kafka now. She turned sharply to Lt. Kimble as he made his suggestion and nodded.
Melena: Do it!
Hal folded his arms as he listened to Dammou, trying his hardest to ignore the arguing inmates. He frowned as he barely accomplished this long enough to here the lietenant out and sighed heavily.
Hal: Very well, I'll be in my office pending Lt. Shrall's report. I can trust yourself and Ensign Joran to keep things contained here? Oh and if those two won't leave each other alone then you have my permission to stun them (said loud enough for Kezi and Dudemeister to here).
Raian sighed a little as he realised that it was time for him to return to duty. He found himself allmost unwilling to part company with the green skinned goddess that lay before him but he knew he had to if he were to keep his commition. He stood and smiled warmlyat the andorian woman he had come to call his lover.
Zan: Well, duty calls I'm afraid. It was fun though, we should really do this again sometime! Maybe we could go for that walk huh?
He leaned in and kissed her on the cheek while awaiting a reply. It was then he overheard two officers talking about the androids move to the Mead, which he of course had not been informed of due his earlier actions. He felt anger bubbling up inside him but kept his expression as the fault did not lie with Imaru. Still, he would be giving that bajoran chief of his a real chewing out!
7th Apr 2008, 12:29 AM
OOC: It's all right, just get better. And I'll assume you meant Kimble instead of Woods... :P
Lt. Kimble: Aye, Sir.
Richie locked on to the Kafka with the tractor and began to pull it back as fast as possible. The Mead's weapons kept its lock on the shuttle but ceased firing.
7th Apr 2008, 9:52 PM
sh'Raazh: Ma'am I'm getting a scrambled message from the Mead, audio only.
Message: ...Captain...insane orders...ship...no control...
sh'Raazh: I'll try to unscramble it. Lt. Kimble you better get them in fast.
Tigan: N'vek I need you to try and contact your mother or your family on Farius Prime, we need to be sure the information we have is correct before ...
Tigan stops himself it's probably better not to involve a teenager in some reckless and ill conceived rescue mission.
Hrisvalar: Yes that sounds wonderful Raian, maybe next time we can have the gagh.
*Lt.cmdr. Hal's office*
Lt. Shral enters the chief of security's office, the Andorian had a serious look on his face (but than again most Andorians do).
Shral: Sir I've reviewed the logs of the shuttlebay it seems that ensign Dudemeister shoved Lt. Barclay and threatened Barclay's mate ensign Kezi at that point the lieutenant defended her resulting in a fight. I think we should put the heat on Dudemeister, who he made it through the academy is beyond me.
8th Apr 2008, 12:58 AM
Acting Chief Science Officer Sharpp strides onto the bridge and takes a seat at a science console. As if he didn't have enough to deal with, Lennox had picked a fine time to become a renigade.
Sharpp: Ensign K'thra, report.
K'thra: Dr. Lennox has commandeered the Shuttlecraft Kafka and beamed the androids from the Mead onboard. They have taken heavy damage and we are tractoring them in as we speak.
Sharpp: *slightly suprised* The mead fired on the shuttle?
K'thra: Yes, sir. We are recieving scrambled reports that the captain of the Mead seems to be mentally unstable.
Sharpp: Just as I was beginning to regain my faith in starfleet... *turns to his console* Sir, there appear to be injuries among the androids on the Kafka, I suggest that we prepare a medical and engineering team to treat them.
The androids work hard to extinguish the newly errupted plasma fire as the Maverick begins to tractor them in.
Lennox: Damn it! We're being tractored back to the Maverick!
Lennox reaches for a console which is about to be consumed by the fire in an attempt to break free of the Maverick's tractor beam as Ezra makes an attempt to pilot the shuttle out. But then there is a small electrical explosion, sending a surge of electricity up Lennox's arm, stunning him for a moment. When he comes to, he is in excrutiating pain, he looks down at his arm and there is extensive damage. Most of the skin and muscle fibers has been burned completly off, only the organically shaped, composite metal bones of his hand and forearm remain.
Lennox: *looking down at his arm, calmly* Oh sh*t!
N'vek hangs on Tigan's last word, anticipating the rest of the thought.
N'vek: Before what? What's going on, Tigan?
8th Apr 2008, 3:04 AM
Rich nods distractedly at Tara.
Lt. Kimble: They'll be back in the shuttlebay in three minutes...
9th Apr 2008, 12:34 AM
Tigan: Well a large portion of the Romulan Genetic Database was stolen, I don't know if you are aware of the fact that everybody who was born or lived in the Romulan Empire has his or hers genetic material stored. It makes it easier to track down criminals and traitors. A faction within the Empire was or is working together with rogue Founders and seeing they can duplicate genetic material there is a possibility your mother is still on Farius Prime if so I need to be sure.
Again Tigan lets out the part that he intends to go on a rescue mission. He wonders if the boy is on to him, he seemed intelligent and certainly was interested in humanoid behavior seeing he was studying exopsychology.
sh'Raazh: I'm reading several breaches on the Kafka and plasma fire, ma'am I recommend we beam doctor Lennox and the Androids out of there. *a beeping sound on her counsel signals that the message of the Mead is partially decrypted* Ma'am I have cleared up about 20% of the message audio only.
Message: This is chief of security .... we have detained captain Saffin and commander Kreg, the captain's orders are becoming more and more erratic ... Captain Saffin somehow has managed to regain control of the ship he has entered a command virus into the central computer environmental control on the bridge is gone ...
9th Apr 2008, 3:57 AM
Sharpp: Thats confirmed, environmental control on the bridge of the mead have been severed. Beware, Saffin seems to be on a destructive rampage. Unless we want a ship full of dead corpses, we better start considering an evacuation route, or at the very least, killing- disabling Saffin.
Lt. Lurek: Lurek to transporter room, we need a lock on the androids aboard the Kafka immediately.
Vado: *over comm* Understood! Attempting a lock now.
N'vek is quite shocked by this news, but he tries to keep his cool. The last thing he wants is to humiliate himself in front of a superior officer, especially one who happens to be related to his father. Instead, he raises a pointed eyebrow at the trill.
N'vek: We are all adults here, why don't you just come out and say it already? Or is it classified. If it is, you should be doing your own fact finding- Why are the whereabouts of my mother so important to you? Are you planning some sort of covert mission?
10th Apr 2008, 12:40 AM
Melena turned and nodded to sh'Raazh. She then listened carefully to the static message and sighed. It seemed to be another case of corrupt officers but for now the priority was to get Lennox home safe and either to rectify the situation on board the Mead or evacuate it.
Melena: Yes, get them out of their and have security meet them in Do it. How many are on board the Mead? Can we get a transporter lock on any of them? (taps combadge) Melena to Hal, assemble a security team to meet Dr. Lennox in transporter room 3. I would also like you and a team to prepare to leave, just in case. Don't forget the EV suits, they may be neccessary before long.
10th Apr 2008, 12:44 AM
Tigan: No it isn't classified in fact the Romulans are making it one big show. I just don't want your mother to suffer a show trail with some trumped charges. As I said before I want to be sure your mother really is on Romulus and not some impostor, and if she not on Romulus we need to get her to a Federation stronghold. I'm planning to take a shuttle and get my family to safety and I will do the same for yours if you let me.
Vado: *over the com* I've got a lock on doctor Lennox and the Androids, I'm beaming them over.
The increasingly delusional captain Saffin has baracaded himself in Jeffries Tube 11. He has realised a deathly pathogen via the environmental controls within minutes his traitors crew will be death. The body of commander Kreg is laying at his feet, his lover and most trustworthy lieutenant has paid the price for her blind devation to a man who little by little has lost all sanity. Their were concerns about his mental well being ever since his failed mission to the Alcreto sector and he was submitted to several psychiatric exams and found fit for duty. But the last weeks his behavior became erratic, his demeanor even more condescending than before and he belittled his crew and colleges for no reason at all. This behavior started after a routine diplomatic mission to a small M-class planet that was in the midst of a civial war and asked the Federation to mediate peacetalks. After the mission cpt. Saffin came back as a changed man, at first the crew didn't notice the change in behavior, Saffin was known for his rude and no nosense approach but as the days progressed his negative traits seem to amplify for no apparent reason and one of the officers that went on the mission died a mysterious death. And no the man was hellbent on killing his own crew for their betrayal.
10th Apr 2008, 1:21 PM
N'vek wasn't buying this sudden sense of concern for his mother. There was something more to it than what Tigan was telling him.
N'vek: So you're telling me, that after five years of never even so much as speaking to me that you suddenly have a great concern for my mother's well being? Really Tigan, don't insult my intelligence, what is this all actually about?
Sharpp: There seems to be something wrong with the atmospheric controls on the Mead. A gas has been released- I am attempting to identify it, but I doubt very seriously that its air freshener.
The androids appear back on the Maverick once again. Lennox holds his terribly mangled arm to his chest, ignoring the pain he steps off of the transporter pad.
Lennox: You've got to get those people off that ship!
The ship is in utter chaos. Cmdr. Marx, the ships Chief Science Officer, tries desperately to make it through the panicked droves of people aboard the ship and to the transporter room. He dons arespirator mask. Luckily he had been already wearing it when this entire ordeal seemed to begin. But first, he must try to retrieve what was left of the ships crew, everyone was dropping like flies, and the rumor had been that a nerve agent was released.
He had noticed something strange about the captain since they returned from the mission on Ritura V. He was even more irratic that usual.
At last, he makes it to a transporter room, the operator is already unconscious. He sends an emergency message to the Maverick from the comm station.
Cmdr. Marx: This is the Mead! Please- there are survivors, the captain has released a dangerous agent onboard, you must help us!
10th Apr 2008, 3:38 PM
Tigan hesitates before responding, his concern was real and he had no ulterior motives. Yes N'vek was right he hadn't attempted to form any sort of relation with the boy or his family but neither did he have a relation with the boys father, whom he actually never had seen face to face. Tigan gives N'vek an empathic look, he can understand his mistrust.
Tigan: I'm trying to get my family and your mother to safety before the shit goes down N'vek, I'm sorry I didn't take the time to get to know you but it wasn't exactly that your family welcomed us to the fold. And maybe I just want to make up the wrongs my uncle did to you.
sh'Raazh: Acknowledged we are beaming survivors directly to sickbay, Lt.jg. Sharpp have you identified the gas? Commander with your permission I'd like to join the rescue team.
sh'Raazh gets a feeling of déjà vu, it feels like the starbase disaster all over again, maybe Star Fleet should revise their policy on carrying dangerous neurotoxines.
10th Apr 2008, 4:40 PM
Melena: Granted, Hal is preparing to leave right now and should be preparing EV suits. Sharpp, I would like you to go as well.(taps combadge) Hal, we need you out there now. Lt. Cmdr. sh'Raazh and Lt. jnr. Sharpp will be joining you. You're going to need those suits.
Meanwhile, the bajoran chief and his team, including Zan and Dammers, were already suited up and prepared to leave. The communication reached Hal, who had decided to leave Kira behind for obvious reasons, as the team reached the corridor
Hal: (to Melena)Acknowledged, we'll be waiting in transporter room 3. I would appreciate it if they could hurry it up, who knows how long they've got other there.
*Nurse Lancaster's Quarters*
Mizuki sat at one end of the table staring a little blankly at the game of Kadis Kot set out before her. She had chosen to play as green but it had still been a while since she had played, as stated earlier. The way to a boys heart was through their favourite toys, so she had once been told. She smiled warmly as she gestured toward the little boy currently before her.
Azuma: Would you like to go first, Hakeem?
10th Apr 2008, 7:29 PM
Sharpp: Aye sir, I am on my way. For the record- the neurotoxin seems to be a voraxnic gas compound- highly toxic to most humanoids. Don't expect too many survivors.
Sharpp stands and exits the bridge, another officer taking his place. He isn't enthused about having to pull on an EV suit and step into that deathtrap of a ship.
Commander Marx arrives in sickbay with many many other familiar faces from his own ship. Most are barely alive and a special decon unit has been set up especially for them.
Dr. Achmed: Commander, I need you to sit down, you need to be evaluated.
Marx: What? No. *pulls off mask* I'm fine, I need to talk to command.
Dr. Achmed: Not so fast, we have a lot of contaminated people here, you aren't going anywhere.
*Transporter Room 3*
Sharpp arrives at the transporter room, already partially dressed in the EV suit, he had stopped by a equiptment locker and got it himself, assuming it would save time. He holds his helmet under his arm and looks at his fellow officers.
Sharpp: Are we ready?
N'vek crosses his arms.
N'vek: Why? Why now? This isn't the first time she has ever been in danger because of her heritage and I doubt it will be the last. What do you want? What happens if she is in some Romulan prison? What could I even do about it?
10th Apr 2008, 8:07 PM
Melena nodded as Sharpp left the bridge and grimaced. She knew all too well that the chances of finding too many surviviors were slim but so long as there was a chance at all, it was worth taking in her eye. It occured to her that the captain would be unaware of the situation but she did not have time to worry too much about this act right now as she sat back and continued to monitor the situation from their.
*Transporter Room 3*
Hal, Zan and Dammers, among others, were also holding their helmets as they waited and the bajoran nodded in ackowledgment to the junior officers.
Hal: We are ,where's sh'Raazh?
10th Apr 2008, 8:13 PM
sh'Raazh: Aye ma'am.
sh'Raazh follows Lt.jg. Sharpp and suits up on the way, she makes a quick stop at the special helmets specifically designed to accommodate Andorians. She feels nervous but resolved to solve this mystery.
sh'Raazh: Sorry I needed to get a special helmlet,Lt.cmdr Hal I sugggest we set our phasers to heavy stun, we don't know what to expect.
Tigan: She'll be killed N'vek plain and simple. As to the way she has a son serving in Star Fleet at the moment that's enough for them.
Hakeem: No green goes first.
10th Apr 2008, 8:25 PM
N'vek: I see.. so its my fault. What the f*ck do you expect me to do? I am one Starfleet cadet, at an astronomical distance away. Even if I find out she is there, what am I supposed to do? Go head to head with the entire Romulan military force? Cut the bullshit, trill. Are you telling me this as a family member, or does starfleet have some other idea of how to handle this?
*Transporter Room 3*
Sharpp screws on his helmet and adjusts his phaser.
Sharpp: Lets get this over with.
10th Apr 2008, 8:31 PM
Tigan: *calmly* No this isn't your fault, and nobody wants you to go head to head with the Romulans. I just wanted to be sure before I risk my life if your mother is in any real danger but fine I'll no longer bother you. As for the Federation doing anything, I doubt it the counsel is licking it's wounds after what happened so I don't expect much of them. Do you really think they care about Romulans.
Tigan has the feeling he didn't handle this well at all the teenager seems distrusting of his motives and everything he says is taken the wrong way, god he hates teenaged fueled paranoia
10th Apr 2008, 8:57 PM
N'vek watches as Tigan starts to walk away. Risk his life? Why would he risk his life? What did he have in mind?
N'vek: Tigan, wait! What were you planning to do? Can we discuss this somewhere more private?
The suited officers appear on the bridge of the Mead. All of the remaining officers seem to be dead, as the survivors have likely already been transported to the Maverick. There is a general haze in the air and signs of a struggle. Sharpp walks to the nearest science station and finds that all access is locked out.
Sharpp: I can't access the science station computers. Any of you gear-heads want to give it a shot?
10th Apr 2008, 9:05 PM
sh'Raazh: Try the registry code of the star ship lieutenant.
sh'Raazh walks towards the captain's chair and tries to access the logs and ship control from there.
sh'Raazh: I'm going to try and hack into their system, Lt.cmdr. Hal maybe we can find some answers.
sh'Raazh tries hard to ignore the bloodstained counsel she is trying to access, she wipes away some sticky matter, she tries hard not to think what it was but without a doubt it's somebodies brain splattered all over it.
Tigan: Well N'vek I'm going to Romulus and try to rescue my mother. I've already contacted the Reunification movement and they assure me that they can get me safely into the cells and out. Let's go to engineering I know so pretty isolated spots there.
10th Apr 2008, 9:15 PM
N'vek: Why didn't you say so to begin with?
Sharpp: I already tried that, commander *under his breath* For christs sake, thats computer interfacing 101.
Sharpp looks around the bridge, there is blood everywhere, corpses heaped over furniture. But under the flashing alarm lights, and through the sterile window of his EV suit, there was a strange beauty about it.
Sharpp: *kicking a severed arm out of the way* So, where do you suppose the captain is? Eating bonbons and watching reruns of Space Trip, no doubt.
Dammers: Space Trip, sir?
Sharpp: Yeah, what? Doesn't anyone watch archiac earth television? You know, this would be a great place to have a BBQ! Who wants to start a plasma fire?
10th Apr 2008, 10:22 PM
The EMH transfered himself ahead of the Security and Medical teams sent to meet the Kishyean androids. Most seem in well enough condition, until...
EMH: Doctor Lennox, your arm! *pulls out medkit* What the hell did you do this time?
10th Apr 2008, 10:32 PM
Lennox: I stole a shuttle and attempted to rescue the androids from that maniac captain. The captain will have my head for this- I am sure the crew of the Mead are still rather upset.
11th Apr 2008, 3:28 AM
EMH: I think they are actually rather dead. Or dying at the most...
The hologram sat Lennox down on the transporter pad and took his arm, running the dermal regenerator.
EMH: If I've been monitoring the channels correctly, the Mead's captain has had a psychotic break and released a deadly agent into the environmental systems.
11th Apr 2008, 5:40 AM
Lennox: I see...
Lennox stares down at the mostly skeletal remains of his arm. This will take some doing to repair, but he knows he needs to get to sickbay immediately for any survivors. If, there are any, of course.
Lennox: Are there survivors? I should get to sickbay if there are.
11th Apr 2008, 6:17 AM
Name and Rank: Commander Andy Marx
Species/Homeworld: Human (one eighth vulcan)/ Bosnia, Earth
Position: Chief Science Officer aboard the SS Mead
A brief sentence or two describing your personality: Marx is a competent officer and scientist, who has a tendency of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, yet always surviving.
11th Apr 2008, 6:20 AM
EMH: No word from the rescue team on that, but the only way you're going to Sickbay is as a patient. This is going to be too much for a hand regenerator...
The EMH rises from the crouched position and offered a hand to the android.
EMH: If we hurry we can get there before Security demands to take you in for questioning. *mutters* They almost killed Barclay like that...
11th Apr 2008, 7:05 AM
Lennox: Yes, this is really quite painful. Barclay? He was arrested? I've missed a lot...
Lennox takes the holograms hand and winces as he stands up. Over the years, he has become good at repressing his reaction to painful stimuli. When he stands, the two are sent to sickbay, while the other androids are diverted to engineering to avoid any further complications in sickbay.
11th Apr 2008, 11:42 PM
Tigan: Well what I'm planning to do is illegal and the less people know about it the better. This is a pretty isolated spot.
Lt. Woods is preparing an engineering team to restore primary power to the Mead, he sighs he could really use Lt. Barclay right about now.
Woods: Okay people you know your tasks as soon as we beam into engineering we'll begin with restoring life support and warp. Lt.jg Stitch you lead beta team, you'll be responsible for getting the secondary systems back on line.
*The Mead's bridge*
sh'Raazh: I've got partial access to the ships main frame, I can see the commands cpt. Saffin has entered but I can't counter them nor get anything to work. This will take time Lt. cmdr. Hal.
*The Mead corridors*
Lt. Dammou and a team of medics have beamed on to the Mead and are searching the corridors for survivors, his training as nurse and security officer made him the obvious choice to lead this expedition but Dammou is feeling reluctant to lead.
Dammou: We'll split in teams of 3 keep an open comm link at all time. Crewman Sharia and Lurat you're with me. We'll search the lower decks. Crewman Sorid, Raryn and Cat you'll take the upperdecks. Crewman Cat you are in charge of your team be careful.
12th Apr 2008, 12:16 AM
Sharpp: *attempts to acces the science console again* It seems I was correct,he released a voraxnic-cyanide compound. Its unlikely that anyone still on the ship is alive. Of course, that depends in part, on their biological makeup.
Lt. Stitch: Aye, sir. Understood.
N'vek: Illegal? Well that would explain a lot. Listen, if my mother is in danger, I want to help. It is my duty as a Romulan to try to protect my elders from danger. Do you understand? You need to let me accompany you.
12th Apr 2008, 12:24 AM
Tigan: *weary smile* That was exactly what I was afraid for that you would want to do something rash like joining me and Marit but as a Romulan myself I understand. You do realize that this could end your career before it even began.
At that moment a blond Romulan woman enters engineering and without hesitation walks towards Tigan and N'vek.
Roth: I've secured us a shuttle Tigan we need to go now.
Tigan: We have an extra passenger.
Roth: He's a child
Tigan: Who's family is in danger
Roth: fine fine let's go.
sh'Raazh: How do you mean?
12th Apr 2008, 12:28 AM
EMH: That usually happens when one steals a shuttlecraft...
The hologram spots a few other Security heading down one corridor. He chose to lead the CMO in the other at a quicker pace.
EMH: A long story short, there was a fight in a shuttlebay between Barclay and Ensign Dudemeister. The Ensign came very close to splitting Barclay's head like a melon... And yet Security dragged them both to the Brig without calling Sickbay first. *presses a turbolift call button* Its enough to make even a holographic doctor swear...
12th Apr 2008, 12:56 AM
N'vek looks at both of the officers before nodding, a sort of smirk on his face.
N'vek: Good... *under his breath* I'm no child.
They arrive in sickbay, and not a moment too soon for Lennox's liking. All of the officers they passed gave horrified stares as they saw the androids badly burned arm. He wondered if they were more disturbed by the extent of the injury, or the obvious reminded or metal bones and charred artificial tissue, just how inhuman he really was.
Glover: Doctors- I'm glad to see you, we have about fifteen casualties from the... my god, Lennox, what happened to you!
Lennox: A plasma fire.
12th Apr 2008, 1:08 AM
((ooc: goodnight feel free to use my characters if needed))
*Corridors en route to the shuttlebay*
Tigan: N'vek *hands him a phaser* I trust you know how to use this because we are going to need them.
Roth: I've got us one of the new Delta type shuttles and what some luck we can acquire a clocking device.
Tigan: How did you manage that?
Roth: I'm a woman of many talents.
Saron is setting at the bar wondering if Kish has any new information about her discovery. She taps her fingers impatiently on the bar.
Slevin: Do you want another brandy Saron?
Saron: No I've had enough have you seen Kish?
Slevin: Our resident Ferengi no I haven't, she's probably hiding from me
Saron: If you see her tell her to contact me, I'll be in my quarters.
12th Apr 2008, 1:50 AM
EMH: Glover, if you need help call Rii in. He may be still awake... K'ira, I'll ned your assistance. We need to reconstruct the good doctor's musclear system in his arm... Is Barclay awake?
Dr. Glover: Um... No, Sir.
EMH: Damn... We could use his Enginering skills...
12th Apr 2008, 9:31 AM
Sharpp looks up from the console, not that it does much good. His already limited vision is further obscured by the confines of the EV suit.
Sharpp: Well sir, different species metabolize chemicals differently. So a hypothetical compound might kill humans, vulcans, trills, cardassians, and bajorans, but have no effect on Bolians or Klingons. Or even worse, the chemical might have a significantly different effect. Where it may kill one species, it may push another species into a state of violent psychosis. *completly serious* We should be on the lookout for bloodthirsty, brain craving zombies from another dimension. They especially like chewing on spleens of vulcanoids.
Lennox reluctantly follows the EMH to a biobed in the non-quarentined section of sickbay. He has become a patient there far too much for his own liking.
Lennox: I am sure I could be effecient with only one arm... Perhaps we should put this repair off, my staff seems in need of assistance.
13th Apr 2008, 2:38 PM
Hal: Great, just what we need! Keep working Lietenant and let us know if you detect anything or anyone. We have about forty five minutes of air left, after that we need to either get out of here or join the dead. We should aim to leave with around five minutes to spare. Will you be ok here sh'Raazh? Lt. Sharpp could use your help. Zan, Dammers, you're with me. We'll search the rest of the ship and see if we can find anything.
As the team left the bridge, Eloran could feel a strong sense of foreboding. It didn't feel as though everyone was dead but there was definately something not right. He wondered if perhaps Sharpp had been right about the zombies, but then again he knew how pessimistic and over the top the lietenant could be. He looked down at his tricorder but it seemed as though the compound, which he could still detect in the atmosphere, was interfering with further signals. Raian however was a little luckier and looked up as he detected something.
Zan: Sir, I'm picking up lifesigns nearby but they're so erratic that I can't even tell what they are.
Hal: Ok, phasers on stun and watch out for zombies!
13th Apr 2008, 4:44 PM
sh'Raazh: I'll be okay, I've almost worked my way around the Mead's codes. Be careful out there.
sh'Raazh has a grizzly image of a mangled corpse attacking her but quickly puts the image in the back of her head as she concentrates on getting the ship's computers operational again. As soon as the men leave an eerie silence falls upon the bridge only the soft humming of the machinery is heard. A shiver goes through sh'Raazh's spine, she reaches for her phaser just in case.
Lt. Woods and his team beam into the Mead's engineering. Woods anticipated that they would be greeted by death bodies but strangely enough engineering is deserted. As the engineers look around they notice that the place has been smashed to pieces, not a single piece of equipment or machinery is fully operational anymore. Woods instinctively reaches for his phaser this feels dangerous.
Woods: People we all be working in pairs of two, nobody is to leave his or hers partners side is that understood. Ensign Zen your with me let's get started with the main core. Woods to the Mead's bridge.
sh'Raazh: Lt.cmdr. sh'Raazh here.
Woods: Ma'am does the bridge still have internal sensors?
sh'Raazh: negative chief, I've only got partial access to the computer maybe one of your grease monkeys got get to the bridge and lend a hand.
Woods: crewman Mika and Gore please rapport to the bridge keep your eyes and comm link open at all time.
*Mead's corridors lower decks - crew quarters*
Dammou and his team have reached the habitat area for the junior officers and non coms. Their rescue search has been fruitless so far and besides one death officer they haven't found anybody or anything. Dammou feels himself sweating and his heart is pounding in his throat, were is everybody the corridors and workstations should be littered with death people but nothing. Not that he wants work his way through corpse but finding nothing is, well strange.
Sharia: Sir there's a forcefield blocking our way.
Dammou: What, how do you mean *scans the corridor* That's a level 10 force field what the hell. I'm reading lifesigns twenty of them, very erratic and failing.
Sharia: I'm seeing it too sir, one of them is defiantly human.
Dammou: I'm going to try to get the field down, crewmen take definsive positions and set your phasers to heavy stun.
13th Apr 2008, 6:16 PM
Sharpp snickers to himself at the thought of zombies on the ghost ship Mead. While this was theorhetically possible, the chances of zombies was extremely unlikely. He attempts to bring the science department computers to some state of working order, which seems to be increasingly difficult, as there is a great deal of damage to computers throughout the ship.
Sharpp: What in the hell were they doing here, nothing about this seems "normal".
13th Apr 2008, 8:24 PM
sh'Raazh: Somebody realized a cascade virus into the computer systems, Lt. Sharpp. I doubt I'll be able to purge it. But I can contain some of the damage, I hope.
Woods: Mister Stitch how are the secondary systems coming along?
Tahlandi and Archer are ushered out of sickbay as they have to deal with the survivors of the Mead. The medical files on Thellin revealed that his unusual brainwave patrons were the result of a rare and little know genetic mutation only found in Andorian/Aenar hybrids. Tahlandi rubs his eyes and bids Archer goodnight.
Tahlandi: We'll meet tomorrow at 10.
Archer: Okay, I'll brush up on my genetics. You think we can enlist a doctor for assistance.
Tahlandi: Maybe if this new crisis is handled goodnight Archer.
13th Apr 2008, 8:53 PM
Sharpp: How convenient for them... I don't think I can get much more done here- the ships computers are barely functioning and the condition is getting significantly worse.
Stitch: Not very well, sir. But I have managed to bring secondary sensors online for 32.687 percent of the ship.
Cmdr. Marx stands from the cot where he was seated and walks to the forcefield seperating the two halves of sickbay. He is unnoticed by the medical staff, who treat the other, more severely injured patients.
He pokes the forcefield with his index finger, hoping to draw someones attention.
Marx: Hello out there! Umm... doesn't anyone want to question us? There is something seriously strange happening...
13th Apr 2008, 9:05 PM
sh'Raazh is startled as the two engineers enter the bridge.
sh'Raazh: Oh next time make your presence known I'd almost stunned you. *turns to Sharpp* Indeed lieutenant I've tracked the date when the virus was installed, two weeks ago. Somebody planned on realizing this virus in the computer system, my guess is that something or someone felt threatened and pulled the trigger. We need to get back and question the surviving crew this is a lost cause.
Woods: Excellent can you relay the sensors to the bridge. I've got enviromental systems back on line the air should be cleared in 20 minutes. But the dilithium chrystals are contaminated, decontamination will take at least three days.
13th Apr 2008, 9:10 PM
The EMH glanced over his shoulder at Marx.
EMH: Commander, I'm sure once things calm down, Security will gladly send someone down for an interrogaton... *to Lennox* Android or not, you're suceptable to infection. I've done some reading on Hoffmann-types and you're mopre organic than the average machine. I can't have you treating patients with an open wound...
13th Apr 2008, 9:23 PM
Lennox sighs and relents to the doctors advice. It was worth a try.
Marx: Do I have to stay in here? I might get contaminated- this is really unsanitary, and I don't think its a good idea-
Nurse Wentzel: Shut up and sit down, commander- I think everyone here is sick of hearing about your sanitation concerns.
Sharpp: Agreed. Besides, they purple wigglies have already started to wiggle.
Stitch: Aye, transferring now.
13th Apr 2008, 9:32 PM
Gore: What is he talking about?
sh'Raazh: I've got sensors, mister Sharpp apparently the grease monkeys are doing their work. Can you locate survivors?
*Mead lower decks*
Dammou and his team have managed to bring down the forcefield as they proceed to search crew quarters a nasty surprise awaits them. Several bodies are found in one of the cabins, cocooned in a visceral substance.
Dammou: According to sensors this is silicone based.
Lurat: Who, what will do this?
Sharia: I'm picking up lifesigns behind this wall.
Dammou: Stand back crewman *points his phaser* slowly remove the panel.
13th Apr 2008, 9:50 PM
Sharpp: Let me see... *enters several codes* Affirmative, I am picking up lifesigns on decks four, five, thirteen, and fifteen. I can't seem to isolate them, though. It must be the isometric gremlin scramblers.
*Mead, Upper Decks*
Crewman Cat walks ahead of her party, looking down every few seconds to see if her tricorder readings have changed.
Nori Cat: I don't know why were even here, theres no way that anyone survived thi-
Sorrid: Ummm... Nori.
The group stops and Cat looks up, her stomach turns to lead as her brain tries to process the large mass in front of her. More corpses, but these are entwined together in some strange, dried-mucus like substance.
Nori Cat: *activates comm* Crewman Nori Cat to sh'Raazh, we have something very... interesting, on deck four.
13th Apr 2008, 9:57 PM
sh'Raazh: Go ahead crewman cat.
At that moment a counsel begins to bleep, an internal alert has been triggered on deck 15, crew quarters.
A deranged cpt Saffin lounges forward with a madeshift knive, crewman Sharia manages to duck away just in time. Dammou shoots to stun the man but the phaser fire only seems to enrage the cpt. further. He slashes at Dammou who manages to disarm him with a table, one of the medics lets out a scream but Dammou is to busy warding of the deranged figure, who did he manage to survive without a EV suit.
13th Apr 2008, 10:36 PM
*Meads Upper Decks*
Nori Cat: I don't think I can explain this sir, its some kind of mass of bodies and-
Nori's thought it cut off when she hears phaser fire behind her and a incoherrent scream through her helmets earpiece. She spins around on her heel to see crewman sorrid firing onto an unidentified Mead command ensign. The officer isn't subdued and Nori Cat runs to her Suliban comrade's defense.
Sharpp is a bit shocked that the internal alert was triggered.
Sharpp: Damn, I was mostly kidding about the zombies. There has been phaser fire on deck 15 and just now on deck 4...
13th Apr 2008, 10:51 PM
sh'Raazh turns towards Lt.jg Sharpp and at the same moment crewman cat is cut of.
sh'Raazh: Crewman come in, Sharpp who is on deck 15?
Mica: Sir I'm reading I don't what I'm reading.
sh'Raazh: Lt.cmdr. Hal we have trouble Lt.cmdr. Lt. Sharpp contact the Maverick let them send in the calvary. *sh'Raazh walks towards Sharpp* Lieutenant is it possible that we are missing something. This feels familiar somehow.
13th Apr 2008, 11:38 PM
Sharpp isn't exactly certain what the andorian officer means. Also, his nose itches terribly and he wishes he could scratch it. The damned EV suits get in the way of everything.
Sharpp: I don't know what you mean sir... asside from the continual theme of corrupt starfleet officers, I don't remember being any situations specifically like this. *hits comm badge* This is the Mead exploration party to the Maverick, do you read me?
Chase We read you, status report.
Sharpp: We need the cavalry, so saddle up.
Chase: Excuse me?
Sharpp: Reinforcements, we need reinforcements. I have no further details, but something strange is happening and the purple wigglies are wiggling.
Chase: Is this Lt. Sharpp?
Sharpp: Yes it is, now please, before we get eaten by zombies- Sharpp out.
13th Apr 2008, 11:49 PM
sh'Raazh: Never mind, I hate sitting here and doing nothing. Anyway this feels like something completely different than corruption. I know Saffin by reputation, he's a bastard but corruption is one thing he would never sink to.
sh'Raazh walks around the bridge wondering what their next move should be. She can't help but feel that they have missed something the message said their captain was becoming erratic, was this the end result?
Dammou manages to subdue Saffin with a high dose of improvoline.
Dammou: is everybody alright? *both crewmen nod* Dammou to the bridge we have found captain Saffin, he's alive but dangerous.
14th Apr 2008, 12:09 AM
At the moment that Sharpp hears about the somehow living and dangerous Captain Saffin, he feels very much like strangling his commanding officer, Riddle. If it wasn't for him, he could be back at his nice, safe little vaccuum that is the biology department of Maverick's science lab. Now, to his dismay, he finds himself wearing the damned EV suit.
Sharpp: So, he is a loyal command officer who is also possesses an exceedingly foul personality. That sounds like every starship captain I've ever met... I have no idea what happened here, so I am open to your opinion on the matter, sir.
At last, Nori Cat and her crew manage to subdue the officer, who upon closer inspection was a trill, sporting lieutenant pips on his collar.
Nori Cat: What in the hell just happened! *hits comm* Nori Cat to the Bridge, sorry about cutting off on you like that. I just got attacked by... by a trill lieutenant, apparently very much alive. I managed to stun him, but he didn't go down without a fight.
14th Apr 2008, 12:20 AM
sh'Raazh: Crewman cat, Lt. Dammou transport back to the Maverick with those two officers and tell the doctors to find why they aren't affected by the neurotoxine *Turns to Sharpp* I'm not sure lieutenant but it could be any number of things.
Dammou: Understood sir.
sh'Raazh: Engineering progress rapport.
Woods: They did a number on the ship's systems, so far we've restored environmental controls, we have partial internal sensors, but the warp core is still of line and the main computer is still locked out for the most part.
At that moment a team of security officers are beamed upon the bridge.
((ooc: I suggest something was done to cpt. Saffin and the Trill lieutenant during thier diplomatic mission and the crew of the Mead missed it somehow))
16th Apr 2008, 12:51 AM
*OOC* Agreed. Oh, and the sooner I can get rid of this bug that I picked up, the sooner I can get back to posting regularly, not to mention get on with my life, lol!
Hal recieved the communication but was already busy with a problem of his own as he was already dealing with the lifesigns that Ensign Zan had picked up. The team could see something ahead resembling a pile of carcasses but were unable to investigate for the time being. As he ducked around a corner, he finally got around to answering the communication.
Hal: We've got problems of our own down here, three vulcans and they're not very friendly! We got one down but Dammers has been injured. We'll be with you as soon as we can, Hal out.
16th Apr 2008, 12:55 AM
Sharpp: I don't suppose we will be leaving anytime soon... I am picking up some strange readings from where Crewman Cat and Dammou's teams were. I wouldn't call them lifesigns per say...
The EV suited officers and their patients beam into sickbay.
Dr. Nexa: What the hell is this? Survivors?
Nori Cat: Yes sir, this officer attacked us.
16th Apr 2008, 1:00 AM
((ooc: I hope you get better soon))
sh'Raazh: Understood Hal, dammit it looks you were right Sharpp we have a ship filled with zombies. *turns to the back-up team* Get to Lt.cmdr. Hal and contain the situation. *turns to Sharpp* Strange lifesigns, great just great Lt. Sharpp I'm pulling the plug do you have any objections state them now. Everybody report back to the Maverick. Lt.cmdr. Hal I'm aborting the mission.
sh'Raazh downloads the logs into a PADD for further studying and she will face the music of their retrait later but she isn't willing to sacrifes their lives for people who are already lost.
Tigan and his merry band of defectors are preparing a shuttle for take off. Tigan has carefully disabled all internal sensors of the shuttle deck and circumvented several back-up systems so they can leave the Maverick without pulling attention to them.
Tigan: N'vek this is your last change to turn back, are you sure you want to do this. Because if we get caught we'd probably face a court martial or worse.
Tigan knows the answer to his question but he wants to impart the severity of what they are doing on the teenager.
16th Apr 2008, 1:19 AM
Sharpp: Thats perfectly fine with me, sir.
N'vek smirks as he turns away from a console he was checking over.
N'vek: I know, sir. But there are things far more important than my career.
16th Apr 2008, 1:32 AM
((ooc: goodnight, feel free to use my characters if needed))
sh'Raazh: Okay, let's get the database and leave this ghost ship. I'd just hope we get some answers out of the survivors.
Tigan: Well said N'vek. We'd be ready to depart in five minutes.
Roth: Have you laid in the course N'vek?
Dammou is helping with the examination of captain Saffin, who is awake and aggressive. Attempts to sedate him again have failed, he is raging and is incoherent. For his and their own safety he is put behind a force field.
Saffin: Betrayal, death, Kill kill kill *throws himself against the forcefield*
Dammou: This are the medical scans I've made of the captain aboard the Mead, doctor. I've never seen readings like this before in a human.
16th Apr 2008, 2:33 AM
Nurse Wentzel continued making her rounds as the other staff treated the surviving Mead crew. She had mae it around to the critical care section when...
Barclay: *groaning* Uhh... K-kezi...? Kezi...
Nurse Wentzel: Mister Barclay? Can you hear me?
Barclay: W-where's.... *trails off*
This worries the nurse. She hurried off to find the officer in charge, whic was still the EMH. The hologram was finishing up sealing Lennox's elbow joint and was regenerating the forearm muscles and K'ira was monitoring the CMO's other systems.
K'ira: Doctor, his arm is healing!
EMH: Hm...? *puts down tool, examins arm* This is interesting...
Nurse Wentzel: Doctor, Lieutenant Barclay is waking up...
EMH: One moment, Nurse... Lennox, How connected is that Borg technology to your recovery systems?
16th Apr 2008, 3:08 AM
Lennox: I am not certain. I do know that the technology is intertwined with most of my systems, but- I have not suffered an injury of this magnitude in quite some time.
Kezi sits on the cot in her cell, her arms crossed, wondering about Barclay's condition. A tall andorian security officer walks in the bridge and exchanges a few pleasantries with the other officers before releasing the forcefield to her cell.
Shrall: You are free to go, Ensign Kezi.
She stands without saying a word and walks towards the door before turning back to the andorian.
Kezi: Do you know if Reg- if Lt. Barclay, is still in sickbay?
Shrall: As far as I know, he is.
Commander Marx is horrified to see Captain Saffin and Acting First Officer, Lt. Bix arrive in sickbay. Alive, no less. Something very strange had been happening among the crew, he couldn't quite put his finger on what. He watches as Saffin throws himself against the restraints, and as two of the EV suited officers who had just arrived there, move Bix to a biobed.
Marx: Oh for christs sake! I'm not sick, let me out of here! Please- there is something seriously wrong with those men, we're all in danger!
16th Apr 2008, 3:38 AM
EMH: K'ira, tend to Commander Marx. Find out what he's babbling about. *to Wetzel* Nurse, check on Barclay again and stay with him until I get there.
Once both women left to their duties, the EMH lowered his voice so only Lennox could hear.
EMH: From these tricorder readings, the Borg nanoprobes have reactivated themselves. They're reparing your arm, entertwining with your original tissue. Now, there doesn't seem to be enough to be a threat, and so far are benelovent, but... But they could override your programming again.
16th Apr 2008, 4:08 AM
A troubled expression spreads across the androids face as the EMH gives him the startling mood.
Lennox: By the prophets... A borg threat is the last thing we need right now. But there is no eminent threat? And the nanites are repairing the tissue?
Meanwhile, K'ira walks over to where Marx is waving about frantically.
K'ira: Commander, please try to calm yourslef, everything is under control.
Marx: No! No it isn't! There is something wrong with them- I fear it might be parasitic, but I could be wrong, it might be something else entirely.
K'ira: What? What are you talking about-
Marx: On the diplomatic party, it was Saffin, Bix, and myself. Commander Morris was on sick leave. Saffin and Bix went to dinner with the political leaders, but I stayed behind at out quarters. When they came back, there was something different about them. I couldn't place it before- but I have read about accounts just like this-
K'ira: Please calm down, commander. *reaches for a hypospray*
Marx: No! Don't give me that! Listen to me!
Nori Cat: Sorry, I overheard your conversation, I just came from that ship and I say he's on to something, sir.
Kezi walks into sickbay, with blood still on her uniform from the fight. She wonders if perhaps, she wouldn't have been better off staying on Vortika. A medic directs her to where Barclay is. Kezi rushes to his side, completely ignoring nurse Wentzel, who is treating him.
Kezi: Reg? Are you alright, how do you feel?
16th Apr 2008, 4:55 AM
Reg visibly relaxed seeing his Vorta lover again.
Barclay: *smiling* K-kezi... I'm better, n-now. The nurse told me you were in the Brig...
EMH: *nods* Slowly but surely. At this rate your arm will be completely healed within the hour. All the same... *picks up a hypospray* I want a blood and tissue sample with the nanoprobes for testing. If you don't mind...?
16th Apr 2008, 5:00 AM
Kezi: *smiles* I was, I got arrested, but they let me go. I would like to kill that damned human pig, Dudemeister... not that there is anything wrong with humans. But are you sure you feel ok? I wasn't sure you were going to make it. I was really worried.
Lennox: *smirks* By all means, doctor. Its strange, I am the one who usually analyze the borg nanites. I'm an expert in the field- but I suppose you still have more expertise than I do.
16th Apr 2008, 5:17 AM
EMH: I do have all of the combined knowledge of every Borg researcher, including those papers you wrote, at my beck and call. Even the files of one Doctor Phlox from the twenty-second century... But if you would rather handle this yourself, I understand.
Barclay: I w-was worried about you... When he hit you, I... I couldn't help myself...
Nurse Wentzel: He'll be fine, Ensign. No permanent damage and the doctor will probably release him in a day or two. *smiles politely* I'll leave you alone...
Barclay: Kezi... The baby...?
16th Apr 2008, 5:31 AM
Kezi can't help but giggle at the thought of the aggressive posturing presented by Reg earlier, it somehow didn't suit him.
Kezi: Fine Reg, she's fine. I only got hit in the head, you know.... but I'm gaining weight fast, I'm going to have to get a different uniform soon.
Lennox: I trust you doctor. *attempting sarcasm* Especially since you have access to all of my research... *waits for his blood to be taken* So have you given any more thought to a name?
16th Apr 2008, 6:11 AM
The hologram nods as he draws the blood.
EMH: Nurse Verrik and I attempted to search, but in the end we figured it would be better for me to choose my name.
Reg only smiles as he takes Kezi's hand and gently rubs her knuckles with the pad of his thumb.
Barclay: You c-couldn't tell. You're always beautiful to m-me...
16th Apr 2008, 6:36 AM
Lennox: That sounds like a logical conclusion. But if you want advice, I suggest speaking with Lt. JG Sharpp, I believe that he would have some very colorful suggestions.
Kezi giggles and cheeks are flushed with purple. For some reason, Reg makes her feel like an embarrassed adolescent at times.
Kezi: Well thanks, its only temporary anyway. Overweight Vortas are virtually unheard of. *looks around* I hope I don't get called to the morgue too soon. Is there anything I can get you? I know were still supposed to be on vacation. I would love to just lay around all day at home with you and eat incredibly unhealthy food and not have to take orders from anyone or say "yes sir"
16th Apr 2008, 6:50 AM
Barclay: *smiles* Yes, ma'am... Um, this is going to sound familair, but will you c-check on Neelix for me? I forgot all about h-him...
The hologram glances up at Lennox with an annoyed look.
EMH: Thank you for the suggestion, but I'm sure I'll do fine on my own... Would you like me to continue repairing your arm of let the nanoprobes finish?
16th Apr 2008, 7:37 AM
Lennox: No, I suppose I should get to work, it appears that we have another crisis on our hands.
Kezi: Sure, I'll check on Mr. Kitty-fluff... I hope Lennox remembered to check on him while we were gone, but then he is an android. I'm supposed to be getting that kitten from him soon too. Do you need anything else?
At this point, Dr. Nexa has taken a great interest in what Marx has to say. She has already started calculating her Report to starfleet intelligence on the Mead incident.
Nexa: Calm down Commander, security will be here shortly, I am sure they will want to speak to you as you are the only coherent member of the Mead crew.
Marx: Oh my god, they're all dead... Please don't make me stay in here with them, I might get infected!
16th Apr 2008, 11:51 PM
*OOC* Hey spider, can I have Frasier and Jaden listed as npcs please? Thanks!
Hal: Great minds think alike sh'Raazh, but it could be a while before we can catch up. I have two other men down here, we'll rendevous as soon as we can. Hal out. Dammers, are you alright? Careful Zan!
Raian was indeed trying his very best to be careful but had received a significant wound to his right arm through his suit after being sliced at with a knife by one of the infected crewmen. Infected with what exactly was another story but there wasn't the time to think about too much at the moment as he concentrated on not being injured further. He nodded to his commanding officer as Dammers let out a groan before struggling to his feet and attempting to resume in the containment of the situation. Eloran nodded back and as the backup team arrived, he was able to communicate the Maverik.
Hal: Hal to Maverik, we're coming home. Theres nothing we can do for anyone else and we're suffering casualties.
Melena: Understood lietenant. Transporter room, can we get a lock on the away teams?
17th Apr 2008, 12:21 AM
sh'Raazh: Back-up is on it's way Hal try to hold out. Commander we have secured the logs of the Mead.
Lt. Woods: you heard the commander people, we'll secure the vessel and rapport back.
Woods wonders why all of the sudden sh'Raazh decided to abort the mission but all the same he feels a relief the eerie silence and complete lack of death bodies worries him more than he let on. He locks down the warp engine so it would be useless without the right activation codes. He locks around as the engineers work hard to secure the ship and leave for now.
Vado: I've a lock on the away team ma'am, I'm ready to beam them over.
18th Apr 2008, 12:20 AM
Melena: Bring them home chief!
The commander rested her chin on her hands as she became increasingly worried as to the situation. The communication from Hal sounded a little desperate and she had heard phaser fire in the background, along with other strange sounds that she did not dare contemplate for the time being. She tapped her com badge to prepare for the returning teams.
Melena: Bridge to Sickbay, any spare medics would be appreciated in transporter rooms 1, 2 and 3. We have a lot of people out there and there may be casaulaties.
18th Apr 2008, 12:37 AM
Dr. Rii: Understood.
*Transporter Room 3*
sh'Raazh and the others are beamed from the Meads bridge to the Maverick. sh'Raazh antennas twitch nervously, she felt guilty for leaving but she knew she made the right call, the crew of the Mead was lost as was the ship itself. Somebody had seen to it that within mere seconds every inch of computer hardware and software was destroyed. Hopefully some of the survivors can give them some answers.
Vado: Welcome back, filters indicate you are all clean.
sh'Raazh: Thanks chief, Commander with your permission I would like to examine the personal logs of the Mead crew and see if we can find an answer.
18th Apr 2008, 12:50 AM
Barclay: N-no, that's it... but, if you could... Go home a-and get some rest. The p-past few days... Just... Please?
EMH: Very well. I relinquish Sickbay command to you, Doctor. *pauses, thinks* That sounded better in my vocal processor...
18th Apr 2008, 1:00 AM
Mirok enters the bridge holding a PADD, his pale skin has blotches of red and he's transpiring like it's a hot day in hell. He walks over to Lt. Kimble.
Mirok: Lieutenant Kimble, sir, one of our shuttles is missing I just noticed it when I did a routine check-up, it's one of the experimental vessels the Spock. *whispering*
18th Apr 2008, 6:58 PM
Lt. Kimble: *harsh whisper* A Delta Flyer? And no one noticed until now?! G*d-dammit...
He stands quickly and makes his way to the center seat.
Lt. Kimble: Commander, I'm needed in one of the shuttlebays. There's a problem with one of the experimental Flyers... It's missing.
18th Apr 2008, 11:51 PM
Mirok is standing there as a whipped dog, whomever did this knew what he or she was doing every possible security system and their back-ups were circumvented. He stares at his feet unsure how the act at the moment.
Lt.jg Caeli was monitoring the situation in strategic ops and is tracking back the missions of the Mead the last three weeks. It were mostly routine missions except a diplomatic mission concerning the Vasalians, they only recently achieved warp drive and are in the midst of a gruesome civil war, both parties have asked for Federation mediation and the Mead crew were the first Star Fleet officers to meet them. Seeing what they figured out from the fragmented message the Vasalians were likely candidates for further investigation.
Caeli: Cmdr. M'ress the rapport you requested about the Meads mission.
Tigan: Let's see if they can track us now? Marit what's our eta?
Roth: at current speed 18 hours.
Tigan hopes his preventive measures are enough to avoid detection by friendlies and unfriendlies alike. He knows the Lt. Woods most likely will figure out how they hide their tracks he just hopes the chief doesn't figure it out to fast.
19th Apr 2008, 12:44 AM
N'vek sits behind his to superior officers, trying to focus on the many various tasks. Double checking all of the actions of Tigan and Roth, he knows as well as they do that they can't afford to be detected. He sighs a nervous rattle of breath and tries to shake the fact that his Starfleet career is about to be ended before it even begins, all for a completly futile rescue mission for people who are likely not even alive.
N'vek: I wonder if we'll even find her. They probably killed her right off...
Lennox: Thank you, doctor.
Lennox stands and realizes that one of his uniform sleeves is missing, a result of the fire. There is still a rather gruesome looking gash where the tissue hasn't reformed yet. He can see cables, muscle fibers, and blood vessels reconnecting to each other, the borg nanites at work, no doubt. He goes to his office to get his lab jacket to cover himself more adequately, and is just glad that Katian isn't there.
*Transporter Room 3*
After it is announced that he and the others are clean, Sharpp removes his helmet, and finally gets to scratch his nose.
Sharpp: I don't suppose any of those survivors are conscious yet? They might be worth talking to- but I'm not volunteering myself for the job. I have lots of sensor logs to go over, and the medical crew should have samples from those zombie- officers by now too...
19th Apr 2008, 12:52 AM
Roth: Optimism little one.
Tigan: That's a possibility N'vek but I still want to do everything possible even if it's futile, I'd never forgive myself if I did nothing.
sh'Raazh: I suspect Lt.cmdr. Hal or cmdr. M'ress will question the survivors Lieutenant Sharpp. Vado I need your assistance in decrypting some of this logs.
Vado: Aye ma'am.
19th Apr 2008, 12:59 AM
Cmdr. M'Ress: Thank you, Lieutenant...
M'Ress scans the report for only relavant information, her cat-likes moving rapidly over the document. Ops was buzzing, the Mead's condition calling for information.
Cmdr. M'Ress: Cadet Woods, see what you can find on these... 'Vasalians.' Anything at all. Obserrvations, rreports on theirr warr. Anything. Calie, contact Securrity and see what the surrvivorr's status arre.
19th Apr 2008, 1:24 AM
Tobias: Aye ma'am, I've already found some information on their religious practices and dietary customs. Apparently they are a theocratic society that worship a god that is both good and evil, it resembles Zoroastrianism an ancient Persian religion. Their diet exist mostly out of parasitic lifeforms and can be quite harmful if not prepared properly, ma'am. I'll research this further.
Caeli: It's also noteworthy that their system Ritura V is been disputed between the Klingons and the Romulans. Seeing the Vasalians are indigenous they are a third party, it could complicate things further.
((ooc: this is from vague memories of my high school philosphy course about Also sprach Zarathustra a philosophical work by Friedrich Nietzsche (many European thinkers found inspiration in obscure long forgotten eastern religions), please don't shoot me when I'm not entirely correct LOL))
20th Apr 2008, 12:25 AM
N'vek: Nor would I, sir... I mean, I am here aren't i? I'm just finding it difficult to maintain my morale. This could very well be a suicide mission and I was never found of death.
Sharpp enters the science lab, sans his EV suit. He wonders is Lt. Cmdr. Riddle is still asleep. He decides not to bother him as he runs into Lt. JG List, who is currently in command of the lab.
List: Can I help you, lieutenant?
Sharpp: Hm? Oh... has sickbay sent any specimens down yet from the Mead survivors?
List: Yes. They are in the forensics laboratory. Ensign Kezi is back, it would probably be best to get her to assist you.
Sharpp: Are you trying to say that I am incompetent to routine testing on my own?
List: I don't think you are competent to maintain your position as an officer on this ship, let alone handle sensitive materials.
Sharpp:*fains irritation* I see... well as far as I know, I am still your commanding officer at the moment. So you will just have to deal with it on your own time, and while your at it I need you to do something constructive, and go over the sensor logs from the Mead.
20th Apr 2008, 12:34 AM
Tigan: Nor am I, Marit when will we rendezvous with your 'contact'.
Roth: I've send them our coordinates we'll meet in a hour and if everything goes according to plan we'll have a fully operational cloaking device. You do know how to install it?
Tigan: I hope so. N'vek don't worry you'll be okay.
Tigan doesn't feel like they will be alright at all this was indeed a foolish mission and could easily let to all their deaths or worse. The Romulans probably will torture them first for information seeing they are star fleet and serving on one of their flagships. Tigan nervously scratches his nose as he lays in an alternative route just in case.
List: Aye sir *mumbling* incompetent fool
Dao: Lieutenant Sharpp can I be of assistance?
20th Apr 2008, 12:47 AM
M'Ress purrs thoughtfully.
Cmdr. M'Ress: I see. Federration law would have them remain in contrrol of theirr worrld... Wherre is this Ritura V located?
20th Apr 2008, 12:59 AM
Caeli: At the Alpha Quadrant borders of the Klingon and Romulan Empires. It's a region of space that spans about 10 parsecs (a parsec is about 3.26 light-years). We've only recently begun exploring that region seeing the diplomatic difficulties that exist their. Ma'am what I don't understand is why neither the Romulans or the Klingons have annexed their world. I can't find anything in the database that would explain that.
20th Apr 2008, 1:02 AM
Sharpp: Most likely... but until the OPs team can dig anything more up on these aliens that the Mead went to mediate, do you know anything about exo-biochemistry?
N'vek: I'm sure thats what they all say... I hope you know how to install that thing, I failed my freshman engineering course twice.
20th Apr 2008, 1:11 AM
Dao: Some mostly related to geological phenomena.
Tigan: I've never worked with Romulan technology but I can assure you I'm good at my job.
Roth: *sarcastically* As one of the leading theorist in bio-engineering Jerrod, you're not exactly mister hands on. You see N'vek he only took the position on the Maverick so he could qualify as an Academy professor.
Tigan: Thanks for the vote of confidence Marit. Don't pay attention to her I also know my way around instruments.
Elen: Commander Melena, the away team is back and one of the survivors of the Mead is getting nervous, it's one commander Andy Marx their chief science officer.
21st Apr 2008, 12:28 AM
Melena: Missing! What do you mean missing!? Just what we need, see if you can track it. (sighs)I am not looking forward to reporting this to starfleet command. I'm sure this ship has been through more hell than all of the Enterprises put together already. Still, I'm just glad our people all made it back in one piece. (to Elen) Does Mr. Marx wish to see me lietenant?
As the injured members of the away team were treated, Raian found himself quickly becoming bored and restless as his injuries were tended to. It seemed to be taking a while as his suit had been torn on the Mead and they were checking him over for infection. Not that they knew exactly what they were looking for anyway which made it feel all the more like a waste of time. As he was tended to, Hal was looking around the room at the surviving Mead crew. He was rather looking forward to questioning them as he, like everyone else, was very eager to piece together what had happened. He assumed that the ships database, including logs, had been at least partially taken and would provide a significant piece of the puzzle. One thing was for sure, he didn't envy the XO one bit.
21st Apr 2008, 12:39 AM
Elen: He's hysteric but he could have some answers he claims he was part of the diplomatic mission. We should question him as soon as possible. Strategic ops has send a partial rapport on the Vasalians and sector Ritura V, ma'am.
21st Apr 2008, 12:51 AM
Melena: I see. Inform Lt. Cmdr. Hal, I'll let him handle the questioning. Reroute the report to the captains ready room, I'll review it from there. Speaking of the captain, I wonder how she is doing?
21st Apr 2008, 11:08 PM
Elen: The captain's condition is stable ma'am, do you want to debrief her?
Dammou: Ensign Zan, I see you got yourself in a tight spot again. I'll tend to him nurse so how in the world did this happen. *scans the wound* their are no signs of infection but it's best to let a doctor check this. *takes a dermaregenerator* This won't hurt.
22nd Apr 2008, 12:20 AM
Cmdr. M'Ress: *growls softly* Knowing the Klingons and Rromulans, there is more to this than the surrface... Keep worrking. I will talk with Securrity myself about the Mead. You arre in charrge, Lieutenant. *exits*
22nd Apr 2008, 12:29 AM
Caeli: Yes ma'am. cadet Woods look into the Klingon cultural database and specifically for mind altering incidents connected to that region.
Tobias: Yes sir shall I cross reference them with Romulan acounts?
Caeli: Good thinking cadet.
Lt. Woods and his team have returned to engineering, he and a small team are studying the fused dillithium crystals. Which is strange to say the least. Also their Android friends are back in engineering making a difficult situation worse.
Woods: *taking Stitch aside* Do you think you can win the Androids trust? I'd rather not resolve to drastic measures again.
*Corridors enroute the shuttlebay*
Mirok: Sir I'm sorry I've missed the theft but somebody took great measure to hide their tracks.
22nd Apr 2008, 1:01 AM
Lt. Kimble: It's all right, kid. These... Well... I can't really say they happen often but... Ugh. *rubs forehead* I'm still feeling that brandy... am I the first person you told or is Security there? 'Cause I don't need those mustard yellow uniforms to stare at...
22nd Apr 2008, 1:05 AM
Mirok: No I'd just warned you, damn I completely forgot procedure. Shall I contact security?
22nd Apr 2008, 1:23 AM
Lt. Kimble: No, Ensign, I'll do it. They were my responsiblity... But do me a favor and run through the security sensors before I do. I wanna get our own idea of what happened before the Mustard Squad come through like a herd of targ.
22nd Apr 2008, 1:35 AM
Mirok: I already did sir they are whipped clean. Somebody really wanted to get of this ship.
22nd Apr 2008, 1:49 AM
Kimble rubs and the knot forming on the back of his neck.
Lt. Kimble: All right, then... I'll get Security down here. You better make youself scarce. I don't want you going down for this, Mirok. *smiles weakly* I still have to win back some of my poker money...
22nd Apr 2008, 4:06 AM
Stitch crosses his arms and sighs as he stares back at the androids, all in various states of repair.
Stitch: I do not know that I would trust them. As a rule, service androids are designed to be obedient. But obviously, these individuals have all evolved past that hurdle. I suppose it, as you would say, couldn't harm to try. But I would not trust them too much initially. They may very well still see you- us, as the enemy.
Nexa: So what can you tell me about what happened on the mead?
Marx shifts his weight and is made very uneasy by the Rivarri doctor's line of questioning. He is however, glad to have been cleared of contaminating agents and allowed out of the quarantine. This only happened, of course, after much complaining on his part.
Marx: Why does it matter to you? You're a medical officer.
Nexa: Oh, I am just trying... to get a better understanding of my patients.
Marx: Well I am sorry, I would prefer not to discuss this with anyone, save the senior staff. And since the entire rest of the senior staff of my own ship is apparently dead... they're all dead. Good officers, their families, everyone, snuffed out.
Nexa: Which reminds me. I find it a bit strange that you just happened to be wearing that protective respirator mask when the bioagent was released.
Marx: *harshly* Just what are you implying?
Nexa: Nothing, nothing at all. Its just strange, don't you think? Those masks haven't even been in comission by starfleet for over a hundred years.
Marx: So? I think you will find that I am a very thorough officer. I am very diligant and care a great deal about my own safety and the safety of the rest of my crew. I certainly do not conspire to kill thousands of innocent people!
Meanwhile, Lennox goes to personally check on the captain.
Lennox: Captain Patton? I am sorry to disturb you... how do you feel?
22nd Apr 2008, 4:46 AM
Patton smiled weakly but did not sit up, remembering the pain from last time she tried.
Patton: Better, Doctor. Like I told the EMH, I think I owe everyone a apology... *frowns* Doctor? Your arm...
22nd Apr 2008, 6:29 AM
Lennox: Oh *frowns* I was... burned in an accident.
22nd Apr 2008, 6:48 AM
Patton's mood is suddenly downcast.
Patton: My God... I'm terribly sorry, Doctor. This is a horrible feeling being out of the loop... Was anyone else hurt? Any casulites or damage to the ship?
22nd Apr 2008, 6:56 AM
Suddenly the android has the expression of a terrified animal, though try as he may to hide it
Lennox: Well... I think it would be better for Melena to discuss it with you- I really should be going!
23rd Apr 2008, 12:02 AM
Patton: Doctor Lennox? Is everything all right? Is something wrong with Alex...?
23rd Apr 2008, 12:12 AM
Mirok: Thank you sir *attempts a smile* You know for a telepath you are a terrible poker player.
Mirok makes himself scares, he's glad he doesn't have to deal with security seeing he isn't very popular with them because of some minor incidents between him and the Cardassian crew. He still wonders how he ended up on a Federation ship with so many Cardassians. The Federation and the weakened Cardassian Empire aren't exactly allies nor on very friendly terms. He had since learned that Tahlandi was a Bajor citizen and as such a Federation citizen but the presence of doctor Rii had him still puzzled.
Woods: Yes I gathered that and some of the crew have hard feelings towards them because of what happened with the captain. I just don't want engineering to became a war zone.
23rd Apr 2008, 12:17 AM
Stitch: Engineering becoming a warzone is highly unlikely. A riot zone, perhaps, or some other kind of small scale conflict.
Lennox: I actually do not know where he is right now. From what I have been told, Lt. JG Sharpp is currently in command of the science department. And Dr. Glover is likely in official command of sickbay- I should technically be under arrest right now.
23rd Apr 2008, 12:18 AM
Richard watches Mirok go, making sure he ws alone, before hiting his combadge.
Lt. Kimble: Kimble to Security, I have a theft to report. If you could send someone up...
Patton: *sternly* Doctor Lennox, I order you to tell me what the hell you're talking about. Now.
23rd Apr 2008, 12:28 AM
Woods: I was being melodramatic Lieutenant *rubs his eyes* I think the lack of sleep is getting to me. Anyway I'm going over the Meads engineering logs if you need anything call me.
Woods isn't sure how he feels about the return of the Androids, on the one hand he pities them and the other hand he is angry about what they did. Their actions have probably set in motion a tragic series of events and it feels somehow wrong to protect the people who almost killed their captain. But as a star fleet officer he know that protecting lives was important even of the guilty. Also some of the Androids were clearly innocent and didn't deserve to be treated as prisoners the whole situation was messed up to say the least. He also wonders if the Kisheyans will return to hunt them, for what he witnessed they weren't exactly the kind to give up so easily.
23rd Apr 2008, 12:43 AM
First Officer's Log:
After detecting a crashed vessel on the surface of a planet close to the neutral zone, we rescued the surviving crewmen, who as it turns out were a group of kisheyan androids led by a Hoffman type android known as Ezra. An altercation took place in sickbay between a number of these androids and our own crewmen, resulting in a significant injury to the captain and my being instated as temporary commanding officer. I wish Captain Patton a speedy recovery from her wounds, both physical and emotional. After this we had a run-in with their former kisheyan masters, ending tragically on their part. After contacting Starfleet Command, it was decided that the Mead would transport our guests to be dealt with accordingly but sadly this was not to be. Dr. Lennox was first to notice that the crew of the Mead were not to be trusted and while is actions were not commendable, they proved invaluable as we returned in time to rescue survivors of some sort of chemical attack initiated by Captain Saffin. An away team was sent to gather information and search for more survivors, the latter being unsuccessful due to a reaction causing primitive and savage behaviour. We are in the process of investigating the matter and Starfleet command have been informed of the situation.
23rd Apr 2008, 12:52 AM
Zan: You know me! I think one of those guys had a knife or something but hopefully I wasn't exposed long enough to turn wacko like they did.
His attention was then diverted to the entrance of Cmdr. Melena, who had arrived to visit the captain. After that sne supposed it would be a good idea to see Lt. Marx of the Mead, although she knew that M'ress already wished to speak with him among others. As she approached and saw that she was speaking with Dr. Lennox, she nodded in acknowledgement to both of them before speaking.
Melena: Captain, Dr. Lennox. I thought you would like debriefing in regards to our situation captain, or is now a bad time?
23rd Apr 2008, 1:01 AM
Dammou: My initial scans don't reveal any containments Ensign, yeah you do seem to attract danger. Oh doctor Rii could you give ensign Zan a thorough check-over.
Rii: Of course, have you been drafted as a nurse again lieutenant.
Dammou: Sort of, he's my colleague and friend so I'm just looking out for his well being.
Rii: *scanning him* well I'm pleased to say I can't find any dangerous pathogenes in your bloodstream but I still want to administer this antiviral and antibacterial hypospray just to err on the side of caution. *injects the medicines* There you go.
23rd Apr 2008, 1:39 AM
Lennox: I was just leaving, commander.
23rd Apr 2008, 1:50 AM
Patton pulls herself into a higher sitting position.
Patton: Lieutenant Commander Lennox, I asked you to tell me what happened and I expect an answer...
23rd Apr 2008, 2:03 AM
Lennox: *with perfect android calm* Right... You see, Saffin seemed to be unstable at the staff meeting and was expressing anti-android sentiments. So, I had intuition, which really doesn't happen for me. So, I stole the Shuttlecraft Kafka to rescue the androids from the Mead brig, because I felt that they were endangered. When I got them aboard the vessel, the Mead fired on us. They led us into a very brief firefight. At some point in time after this, Captain Saffin released a biological agent onto his own ship and killed virtually his entire crew and himself. The rest of the androids any myself were rescued from the badly damaged Kafka. The few remaining survivors from the Mead were beamed to sickbay. 13 survivors, four have died since coming into treatment here.
23rd Apr 2008, 2:47 AM
There is a tense moment of silence for Patton as she absorbs the imformation.
Patton: You stole a shuttlecraft and kidnapped people in Federation custody, Doctor? You must have known the consequinces before hand. Even if Captain Saffon was unstable, what you did... *trails off, to Melena* I'm not in command now, but Commander Melena I would suggest you relieve Lennox of duty until Starfleet responds with new orders... *to Lennox* You probably would be court marshaled for this, Doctor, if there wern't extenuating circumstances...
23rd Apr 2008, 3:01 AM
Lennox becomes more tense as he holds his still injured arm to his chest. If there ever was an awkward moment, this was it.
Lennox: I understand that, captain. I am willing to face the consequences of my actions. I just hope that you can understand why I did what I did... I was standing up for my kind. I did not trust that man or his crew to deliver those people safely to to federation territory, so I tried to take matters into my own hands. And Ezra was with them, I know my creators would have wanted me to save her.
There is a long silence and the android diverts his white-blue eyes towards the floor as the magnitude of what has happened starts to sink in.
Lennox: And now, more people are dead... as a result of my actions.
23rd Apr 2008, 4:58 AM
Patton: There are always consequences to our actions, Lennox. They were unintentional, you had the best in mind, but things happened... *pauses* Perhaps the Brig would be to... Extreme in this circumstance. House arrest would suffice, right Commander Melena?
23rd Apr 2008, 5:03 AM
Lt. Sharpp enters sickbay, staring down at his PADD. He stops just past the entrance and looks around the room, squinting through dirty spectacles. Finally, he sees the engineer in question at the far corner of the medical bay, apparently trying to seem comfortable.
Sharpp: Lt. Barclay, I need to speak with you.
23rd Apr 2008, 5:23 AM
Reg leaned back against the cushioned biobed after Kezi left. He was relieved to know that she and the baby were all right. That Dudemeister didn't deserve to be--
A voice interrups the thought.
Barclay: Lieutenat Sh-sharpp? Uh... What can I do f-for you?
23rd Apr 2008, 5:27 AM
Sharpp: Good, you aren't mortally injured! Can you walk, if you can then you're coming with me. There is a giant pink anteater in my lab and I need you to help inseminate it.
23rd Apr 2008, 5:40 AM
Barclay: *confused* Ins-seminate an anteater? W-what are you t-talking about? Why would you d-do that? I c-can't help you...
23rd Apr 2008, 5:49 AM
Sharpp: *rolls his eyes* Not a literal anteater! A figurative one! You humans have no sense of humor! Now get up. In plain english, I have a bit of an engineering problem in the lab. You are the best gearhead for the job... Really you are the only available engineer. Everyone else is on the mead or running around like decapticated birds with squirting arteries.
23rd Apr 2008, 6:00 AM
Still very much confused as to what was going on, Reg climed out of the bed and relaced his boots.
Barclay: Um... I t-thought you were human, too...
23rd Apr 2008, 6:17 AM
Sharpp: Well.. thats what they tell me, but I am not convinced. Its all just an elaborate hoax. But that isn't important right now. Do you know anything about noninvasive bio-nanite viruses and obscure holotechnology used for brainwashing?
23rd Apr 2008, 12:13 PM
Name: Ixu Meela
Position: science officer
Brief Character Description: Meela is a member of a little known species from the beta quadrant. They are almost identical to the Talaxians of the beta quadrant, save a few physiological differences.
24th Apr 2008, 12:31 AM
Melena frowned slightly as in the heat of the moment she had overlooked the doctors discretion. So much had been happening at once that she had not had the time to sit back and think things through. She nodded as she looked over to Lennox.
Melena: That would probably be for the best. I think we're more than adequetly covered down here staff wise. Well, do I need to make it an order or call security doctor? (to Patton)I'll assign two security officers to Dr. Lennox quarters, just until we can get things sorted. Would you like that report captain? (sees Hal) Hello Eloran, I thought you were in the docking bay?
Hal: Good day Melena, captain, if you can call it good anyway. Why were you under that impression anyway?
Melena: The stolen shuttlecraft?
Hal: What, another one? Damnit, next chance I get I'm assigning permanent security to that place. Two in one day! Excuse me then captain, commander. Dammou and Zan, when you get a moment would you care to join me?
Zan: Love to, anythings better than being stuck in this place. What do you expect us to do about it anyway, take another shuttlecraft and chase the damn thing?
Hal: I suppose not but I suggest you mind your tongue in future ensign. There are one or two members of the senior staff who may not appreciate your little outbursts.
Zan: Yes sir...(to Dammou and Rii) Thanks, is that it? Say doctor, the symbiosis commition never got in touch after that little episode I had a few weeks back did it? Wonder why, I don't think I upset them or anything. Unless they're still mad at Yulia but thats a whole different story. Anyway, I'm off in a tangent. May I then?
24th Apr 2008, 12:38 AM
Dr Rii: Actually they did, but their information was useless they aren't the most forthcoming of people. They promised more information as soon counselor D'ar returns to duty but I've no idea when she's back.
Dammou: Aye sir so we're investigating a stolen shuttle craft, any ideas on how this happened? Who will be handeling the debriefing of commander Marx, Sir?
24th Apr 2008, 1:07 AM
Zan: They did huh? I know what you mean, but I think maybe they're just trying to cover their backs. With the whole one in a thousand, or whatever, thing I guess they're just trying to forget that Zan went to a complete nobody who had never even set foot in a training class, never mind Trill for goodness knows how long. With the same happening with Luv and even Dax, I imagine they're sweating right about now. I know Arrik would be.
Hal: Perhaps. I'll be down in the shuttlebay very briefly, after which myself and Cmdr. Melena plan on speaking with Lt. Marx. Wonder what we've got in strategic ops anyway? I'll leave the shuttlecraft investigation to the others as, as Ensign Zan pointed out, theres not a lot to do.
24th Apr 2008, 1:25 AM
Rii: Could be ensign, they seemed rather annoyed by my questions.
Dammou: Our deserters certainly know how to pick their moment I'll give them that.
Dammou hopes this isn't another sinister plot or something. They seemed to attract trouble on a daily basis.
An ancient looking Klingon ship decloaks at their bow. Tigan feels a panic bubbling inside him, Lt. Roth had apparently stroke a deal with Klingon pirates. What in the world was she thinking Klingons and Romulans weren't exactly the best of friends to state it mildly. Most Klingons consider Romulans as cowards and unworthy and for most Romulans the feeling was mutual. This could easily go wrong he gives his friend a disapproving look and reaches for a small hand phaser.
Tigan: Marit what the hell were you thinking Klingons and please don't tell me were safe because we are star fleet, it will not stop them from killing us death if they decide they don't like us.
Roth: Don't get your knickers in a twist Jerrod, their friendly. *opens a channel* Mogwar my friend what a kind of glorious battle have you undertaken to get such mighty a ship.
A Huge and broad shouldered klingon middle aged man lets out a hardy laugh. Tigan looks over at N'vek and wonders what the teenager is thinking and just hopes their Klingon friends stay friendly.
24th Apr 2008, 11:12 PM
N'vek is quite terrified when he sees the intimidating looking Klingon on the view screen. What on Romulus was Roth thinking? She's going to get them all killed before they even make it to their destination!
N'vek: *whispers to Tigan* Do you think they'll cooperate?
25th Apr 2008, 12:10 AM
Tigan: *whispering* I have no idea they seem friendly, for Klingons. Just remember your psychology training about Klingons and your phaser and you'll be fine. Also their weapons are powered down that's reassuring.
Tigan tries to hide the blinding panic he is feeling, did she even think this through? Tigan isn't a coward or easily afraid but even with a Delta Flyer shuttle they are exposed and outmatched if the Klingons decide they don't like them. Lt. Roth doesn't seem to share this concern and is pleasantly chatting with the Klingon commander about this and thats, well at least that's a good sign he hopes.
25th Apr 2008, 5:19 AM
Finally, Sharpp said something Reg almost understood...
Barclay: I've done s-some work on bio-nanites and... Um... Actually I k-know a lot about holotechnology... What f-for?
Patton: Yes, Commander, I want that report when available... But you should attend to the more recent shuttle theft...
26th Apr 2008, 11:26 PM
The shuttlebay is filled with security officers, dealing with the theft of the stolen shuttle. According to the ships computers nobody was missing. Tigan had used his extensive knowledge of biological engineering to create false biosigns that will fool the sensors for at least twelve hours and on top of that he planted duplicates of their combadges in their quarters. He had planned and executed their escape meticulously. Dammou is buzzy with one engineer to try and save the erased logs.
Dammou: Lt.cmdr. Hal the erased logs are inretrivable, I'm sorry.
sh'Raazh has returned to the bridge to coordinate the salvage of the Mead. The ghost ship was to be towed back to the nearest Federation outpost, leaving it was no option because enemy factions would of course love to get their hands on Federation technology. She's surprised that Richie isn't on the bridge and even more surprised to learn about the new crisis. It seemed that the Maverick and his crew had a knack of attracting disaster.
sh'Raazh: tactical what's our defensive capabilities if we come under attack while we are towing the Mead? Navigation I want you to give us the best possible speed as soon as we are cleared to go.
Archer is looking at the medical scans of T'lei, his antennas softly sway. His dead eyes are transfixed on the scans.
Archer: what's her prognosis doctor.
27th Apr 2008, 3:52 AM
Dr. Kerik: She will most likely recover. Though she would require significant counseling to regain her composure. She has always been far too emotional, and this tumor only compounded that... Of course, that is only the logical outcome if a vulcan is not properly introduced to the teachings of Surak.
Sharpp: Excellent, Lieutenant. I just like to keep my options open. It seems that I keep having to rescue everyone when things go to hell.
Sharpp pulls a silver flask from his pocket and takes a swig of the extremely toxic smelling liquid that wafts through the corridor.
Sharpp: Would you like some?
27th Apr 2008, 4:10 AM
And he was back to being in the dark about what was going on...
Barclay: *cringes* N-no, thank you... Um, you still haven't t-told me what you need me for...
27th Apr 2008, 4:15 AM
Sharpp shrugs as he downs the rest of the metallic fluid.
Sharpp: I told you, lieutenant. I need your help. I have a theory about what made Captain Hook decide to kill everyone on his ship. I also find it suspicious that the chief science officer was both on the landing party with the Captain and the obligatory red shirt, and also the only survivor not th be exposed to the nerve agent.
27th Apr 2008, 5:21 AM
Reg began to question just what was in that flask.
Barclay: I'm s-sorry... I'm not sure... What are you referring to?
27th Apr 2008, 5:29 AM
Sharpp: *blinks* Ah, I forgot you picked a fight with dudemeister. Good going with that, by the way. I would have done it myself, but after killing Admiral Thiar, I'm on the proverbial short leash.... Are you aware of anything that happened recently regarding the mead? You know, the whole rogue androids, insane captain, bio-agent thing?

Barclay: I didn't pick any fight. H-he-- I mean... *sighs* No. Before that, I w-was off ship with Kezi...
Reg mentally cringed. When they first met, he remembered that Sharpp and Kezi were having drinks together. He wasn't sure if there was any feelings between them. didn't she say she was attracted to Sharpp...? Maybe he felt the same...

Sharpp: Naturally, I'm sure her family was just thrilled that she chose such a fine specimen of humanity as a mate.... Ok, its like this Lt. Broccili. Some Kisheyan androids and Dr. Lennox's sister android stole this nifty starship and crashed it on an L class planet. We rescued them and found out that they were fugitives. So Patton was an idiot and said she was turning them over to the authorities. One thing leads to another, the captain gets stabbed, the Mead comes to pick up the androids. Of course the captain of the Mead is- was a bit anti-biomechanical life. Lennox stole a shuttle to "rescue" the androids from the Mead. The Mead fires on his shuttle, and the captain releases a biological agent onboard the ship for no apparent reason. There are initially about twenty survivors. One of which is the chief science officer. Now do you need me to go over that again more slowly?

Barclay bristled at the sarcasam about Kezi's family and being refered to as 'Broccili', but tried to keep his tone even.
Barclay: No, I understood fine. Your theory about t-the Mead's captain...?

Sharpp stops shortly outside of the science lab and turns to Reg. He looks around so as to make sure that no one heres him.
Sharpp: Do you remember a case- actually, you were on the Enterprise at the time, and their crew uncovered it- which is part of why I asked you here. So unless you are immensely stupid, you should remember it. But do you remember a case where some rather unpleasant parasites took over the bodies and minds of starfleet officers, and forced them to do some rather unpleasant things? Well I don't think that these are ogranic parasites that we are dealing with, I think that one of the factions on the planet which the mead had just visited did not want the civil war stopped. So they did the obvious and planted preprogramed nano viruses into members of the landing party. Everyone of course, but Cmdr. Marx *this last sentance is said with paticular disdain*
A slight grimmace spreads accross the officers face as he crosses his arms.
Sharpp: I've encountered him before, the man just isn't stable.
After this, Sharpp attempts to take another drink from his flask, only to find that its empty. He shoves it back into his pocket.
Sharpp: Damn, I'll need to get some more from the chemistry lab.

*Corridor Outside Science Lab*
Barclay: *nods* I remember that... But, I w-wasn't invovled, I only read the reports...
Reg is silent for a moment, considering the odds and technical side while ignoring Sharpp complaining about his empty flask.
Barclay: A nano parasite w-with mind controlling programming? It's possible... If t-the species was technology advanced a few decades beyond the Federation standards. I'm n-not sure a warring planet could develop something l-like this...

Sharpp: Yes, but the ferengi have been selling quite a bit of borg technology these days. In fact, didn't you try to assist in getting them some from Voyager? Always expect the unexpected. *in a fake british accent* No one expects the Spanish inquisition!
27th Apr 2008, 10:48 PM
*Corridor Outside Science Lab*
Barclay: What? No! I-I didn't, or wouldn't help the Ferengi... Th-they hijacked a holographic program I sent Voyager, changed it... Then a year after Voyager came home, hijacked another attempt at two-way communicatioin with t-the Delta Quadrant we were working on. *sighed* It would have worked, too...

A sardonic grin spreads across Sharpp's face. For some reason he is getting a sick sense of satisfaction from his superior officer's distress. He restrains himself from laughing.
Sharpp: Well, its good to know that you are a loyal officer. But really, how did you manage to be outsmarted by the Ferengi? They are so incredibly predictable. Always expect they worst of people, lieutenant, always expect the worst! Now, if you will step into the lab... I promise I do not have plans to kill you through a long, painful series of medical expirements involving anal electrode probes and Derubian flesh eating bacteria.

*Crew quarters lower decks*
Saron is trying to meditate but fails so she walks around her room wondering when Kish will contact her again. Why was it taking the Ferengi woman so long to contact her again. Her patience is wearing thin but she was told she did jump the gun from time to time and maybe she was doing it right now. She plays with her combadge wondering if she should contact Kish or not.
sh'Raazh: Lt. Luv what are you thoughts on our defensive capabilities?
29th Apr 2008, 2:52 PM
Luv:*sarcastically* Our capabilities are the same as any Galaxy class starship. But other than that, I might be able to help you, but who are we planning to get into a firefight with? Because I have some expiremental Romulan cannon mounted disruptors in storage...
29th Apr 2008, 8:49 PM
sh'Raazh: *annoyed and missing the sarcasm completely* That wasn't what I meant lieutenant but it's good to know you keep forbidden weaponry in the closet. Seeing Lt.cmdr. Hal is hold up with the theft of the shuttle and the questioning of the survivors of the Mead I need you to step up. So I want you to device a tactical plan in case our Kisheyan friends decide to attack again. Also I want you to factor in that we are towing the Mead along so we need to know how this will affect our ability to fight back. Do you think you can do that lieutenant or shall I delegate this task to a more capable officer.
sh'Raazh takes the captains seat and wonders when captain Patton will return to duty, commander Melena proved herself worthy but the moral of the crew was suffering of the absence of the captain. She types in some codes and begins working on decrypting some of the database of the Mead.
Engineering crewman: Lt.cmdr. Hal, the shuttle has masked it's warptrail
Dammou: Sir this is problematic, the culprits have erased every trace of themselves and according to ship computers everybody is accounted for how do you want to proceed?
30th Apr 2008, 12:30 AM
Melena: Of course, I was just on my way. Everything you need to know is in this PADD captain. I should probably start making my way down there now, I'm glad to see that you are looking a lot better anyway.
With that she bid her farewells and and made her way down to the Docking Bay from which the missing shuttlecraft presumably departed. There were a lot of other personnel already flitting about attempting to uncover the truth behind the latest dilemma. She noticed Lt. Cmdr. Hal and a crewman from engineering speaking with one another and approached, patting Kira, now reunited with her master, on the head as she did so. She also noticed the presence of Dammou and Zan and wondered how they had gotten there so fast but decided not to dwell on it.
Melena: What do we have then gentlemen?
Hal: Not a lot, apparently whoever took the shuttle left no trace and according to our computers, everyone's accounted for.
Melena: *Sigh* No witnesses?
Hal: Nope, looks like we're dealing with some pretty sneaky customers. We've got people working on trying to find something that might help us track the damn thing down, but no luck so far. On a personal note, if Ensign Zan suggests taking another shuttle and 'kicking butt' one more time I'll feed him and his symbiont to Kira.
Melena: Yes, he can be a little boisterous I suppose. Trust me, I knew the last one! Anyway, a shuttle may not be a good idea but what about using a probe? Is there anyway to find them that way?
