A cadet training as a pilot began her preflight checks on one of the Challenger’s Valhalla-class runabouts. She had been notified that the XO would potentially be flying the runabout as well, but for now, she was in charge until everyone got there and situated.

Cadet Flysalot

Cadet Douglas walked toward the the runabout. “Cadet Douglas, reporting as ordered. I have an idea to get us through the storm in one piece, maybe not with a bruise or two, but alive.”

(Cadet. Douglas. Science)

One of the engineering crew chief in the shuttle bay wandered around the outside doing checks and coordinating with Flysalot doing the thumbs up and down system checks before making a few notes on a PaDD coordinating with other enlistedmen. “Do ya know what load out yer gonna need?” he asked the cadet pilot.

GM Wombat

Douglas trying to intervene. “I have an idea. If we do a manual de-orbit burn with oxidized atmospheric thrusters and shut down and use RCS for the Re-Entry phase, the storm might not destroy us entirely. But I would have to co pilot for course correction calculations on the fall.” Douglas took a breath. “To use that plan we need to use a Fuel, oxidizer mix for the atmospheric thrusters, otherwise impulse would destroy us.

“Maybe you want to pilot?” Flysalot commented with a grin at the cadet. “We’ll get you there, I promise. We just need to wait a few moments for the rest of the team.”

Cadet Flysalot

“I can, but I’d still recommend someone, with, higher training to co-pilot.” Douglas waited a moment. “We’ll need to load up secondary fuel tanks with oxidiser and set up in a fashion both can run simultaneously.”

It was his first away mission, and Cadet Rainns was as nervous as he had ever been in his life. He didn’t know what he had volunteered to do but he was going to do whatever he was supposed to the best of his abilities. Arriving at the shuttlebay his eyes scanned the room for a few moment to find the runabout he was to report to. Upon seeing it the somewhat anxious Cadet made his way toward the space craft. He stepped onboard to see two fellow cadets having a conversation about piloting and fuel tanks, neither of which were his specialty.

Cadet Joseph Rainns- Security

After finishing, Douglas spoke. “Hey, you’re with us right?” Not giving time for Rainns to answer, “Every experienced more than 6g?” questioning worriedly.

(Cadet. Douglas. Science)

Cadet Rainns nodded in response to the first question, although he immediately realized Douglas had not been looking for a response. “Of course I have,” Rainns verbally responded to Doulgas’ second question, with a hint of annoyance. ‘A know it all’ Rainns thought to himself ‘just what I need’.

Cadet Joseph Rainns- Security

Douglas turned to the other cadet. “Have you experienced 6g?”

(Cadet. Douglas. Science)

The Chief Engineer walked in right at that time. “I hope you’re not suggesting that my engineering crew is that lax on maintaining the inertial dampeners, Cadet,” Keval said, interrupting the conversation. “We will certainly not be experiencing six times the gravity of your Earth.”

“Now, since you both have a lot of time on your hands to chat while the runabout is getting checked out, you can both help with loading the extra equipment we’ll need,” Keval continued. He pointed at the science cadet who he had interrupted (Douglas). “You can start loading the communication relays, so we can at least try to continue this conversation over our comms in this EM storm. You can help set them up when we get to the surface.”

Keval then waved over the security cadet (Rainns). “And you can help with the structural integrity field generator. A portable generator doesn’t generate that strong of a field, and it won’t last forever, but we’ll probably need it if we’re rescuing trapped miners.”

-Lt. Keval Vras, CE

Douglas chuckled before commenting. “We need to free fall into the planet with RCS alone. No power, and as I said earlier we need to shut down impulse and use atmospheric thrusters. We’ll get six times of earths gravity if we’re lucky. We can use the generator when we’re down there. I welcome any other ideas that don’t require this.

While Cadet Douglas was talking Lieutenant Tija had entered the shuttlebay. At his words she stopped dead in her tracks and turned even paler than she already was. Even her freckles seemed to become paler. Thankfully, she had all the medical equipment that she might need (medical tricorders, dermal and osteo regenerators, hyposprays and other medications) in a shoulder bag. Otherwise she probably would have dropped them on the floor. As it was, all she could do was focus on her breathing as she tried to calm herself down.

Douglas after stopping saw Lieutenant Tija, asked, “Are you also another passenger?”
