“Counselor, welcome to the Bridge,” Grayson looked up and nodded in greeting, “Take a seat, please,” his hand motioned to the chair on the other side of him as he leaned back and thought about what the XO said for a moment.

“Jettison the pods, Commander.” He looked at Foley and then stood up. “We can pick them up later when the situation has been resolved and for now, we haven’t lost anyone. I don’t plan to either. What is the situation on the ground in the Cargo Bay, Counselor?”

Captain Rhodes, CO

Pilar realized how rude it must have been for her to just walk onto the bridge and start talking about how they must be prepared to lose a crew member. She nodded to the Captain and said, “Yes, sir.”
She took her seat and then answered his question, “Situation is still dire, sir.” after a brief pause, she continued, “Despite that and what I said earlier, Ensign Hedley may have come up with a solution. She thinks we can phase Morton back in. A brilliant idea, nonetheless, and Lieutenant Williams has been informed but I am not optimistic it going to work and Morton seems to be suffering a great deal. The phasing may work, but that does not guarantee he will still survive this.”

Halcyone, Counselor

“Agreed Captain,” Aaron said standing up from his chair. “Preparing to jettison the antimatter storage pods.”

As he walked around to the Engineering station, he tried to block out the idea of what might happen to Ensign Morton. It wouldn’t be the first time he had lost someone, but he still didn’t have to like it. Plus he needed to remain strong for the crew.

Reaching the engineering station he brought up the ejection sequence. When prompted he inserted his authorization code.

“Jettisoning antimatter storage pods,” Aaron said as he hit the eject button.

Cmdr Foley - XO
Shortly after the antimatter pod ejection, the bridge heard : =^= Lieutenant Williams to the Bridge, we might have a solution, and we’ll need the transporters for that. Are they still functionnal ? =^=

Lieutenant JG Aaron Williams - CSO (crosspost)

=/\=Sheridan to bridge. does someone mind telling me why we just ejected most of our antimatter supply? the core just went offline, it must have been drawing antimatter from that side of the ship. Main power is out all over the ship, I am attempting to reroute power from the impulse reactor, hopefully it will be enough for main power in critical areas. Unfortunately restarting the core will take me most of twenty minutes because we didn’t shut it down properly=/\=

-Lt. Sheridan

There was a lot happening on the ship. “Captain, Commander....” she addressed both, “the odds are not in our favor right now. The core is offline and we are operating on auxiliary power. We do not have 20 minutes to spare. Lieutenant Williams intends to phase Morton using the transporters. We definitely need to get that power back on.”

Halcyone, Counselor

=^= Lieutenant, we had mircofractures extending from the cargo bay directly to the anti-matter pods. We were within minutes of them potentially rupturing. We tried contacting engineering, but no one responded.=^= Aaron said stepping back towards the center of the bridge.

=^= Priority is getting power restored to Transporter Room 1, second is making sure we can get power to the containment fields surrounding the cargo bay. Everything comes after that, including a diagnostic on the comm system. =^=

“Counselor, I’m quite aware of the odds. How familiar are you with the transporters?”

She nodded at him acknowledging his comment to her and said, “I am quite familiar with the operation of transporters. How can I help?”

“I have an idea, but I want to hear what is all involved with this plan first.”

=^= Bridge to Lt Williams. We’ve had a slight change in plans. What is your plan? =^=

Cmdr. Foley - XO
=^= Basically, we want to transport Morton and block his pattern inside the buffer so we could rephrase the missing part of his body with our universe. Do we still have enough power for that ? =^=

Lieutenant JG Aaron Williams - CSO (crosspost)

=^= Understood Lieutenant. Unclear on the power, but I think… =^= Aaron started before he was interrupted by the NE.

The NE at the engineering console frowned and shrugged, looking over at the XO. “Sir, the warp core is back online and seems stable.”

~Mischief Maker

Halcyone, Counselor

=^= Appears that power is not an issue. I’m sending Commander Halcyone to Transporter Room 1. Coordinate with her and get Ensign Morton back in one piece Lieutenant. =^=

Aaron looked over at Pilar, “Do whatever you need to do to try and get him back in one piece Counselor.”

“But, Sir....” she started before she was interrupted by Williams over the intercom.
=^= I’m working on it. Williams out =^=

OOC: Oops, I messed up here. I meant Sheridan, but thanks for the save, Adrien!

=/\= Understood Sir, I will get right on it for you. Looks like we just had a glitch in the core, its back up now. Once we are out of this I will check it out.=/\=

Lt. Sheridan (crosspost)

PIlar did not finish her sentence. She nodded at the Commander and entered the turbo lift, headed to Transporter Room 1.

Turning back to the screen, which was still showing what was going on in the cargo bay, Aaron tapped his commbadge. =^= Understood Lieutenant. We can figure out what happened later. For now make sure we keep power to Transporter Room 1 at all costs. =^=

Staring at the screen Aaron tried to block out the worst case scenario. There were too many what if’s for him to consider at the moment, and he had to be strong for the crew.

Cmdr. Foley - XO

Do whatever you need to do to try and get him back in one piece Counselor. The words rang in her head over and over. What if there was nothing they could do? Of course, she would try to do just as the Commander said, whatever she could to ensure Morton was brought back in one piece.

Halcyone, Counselor
Lieutenant JG Aaron Williams - CSO (crosspost)

Aaron had been trying to patiently wait while watching everything play out in the cargo bay, but he wasn’t sure how much longer he could keep his nervousness in check, even if he was still able to hide it from the bridge crew.

=^= Foley to Williams. Status update. =^=

Cmdr. Foley - Acting CO
=^= We are waiting for the Transporter room to get ready. But we are about to launch the operation any moment now. =^=

Lieutenant JG Aaron WIlliams - CSO (crosspost)

After a moment of tension, Williams’ voice came back : =^= Williams to Bridge, we are beginning the experiment. =^=

Lieutenant JG Aaron Williams - CSO

Aaron took a deep breath and let it out. It was now or never.

=^= Good luck Lieutenant. I’ll let you get to your work, keep me informed. =^=

Now it was just time to watch and wait.

Cmdr. Foley - XO
