Aaron nodded as he took it in. He did quickly glance over at Rodier before looking back at Pilar. “Go ahead Commander, pull whatever resources you need from the Challenger.”

He paused for a moment before lowering his voice so only she would hear. “And take a deep breath. We will get them out, but if we rush, the crew may panic and we may just make the problem worse. Understood?”

“Yes, sir!” She nodded as she acknowledged what he said. She headed for the lift, but before she entered she said, “I will do everything I can to ensure they are returned to the ship safely.” When the lift opened she jumped in.

Halcyone, XO

=^= James black to bridge the captain is aware I have been undercover. For security this entire time, I think I will be more useful as security from here out Lt rodier where doi go sir?=^=
Cadet James black engineer

OOC: fixed split

Henry shot Foley a look of mixed confusion and anger, but did not speak to James’ statement - that could be saved for another time. =^= Cadet Black, ensure all people in the containment area are as near to the exit as they can be and coordinate with Doctor Vesta to get out of there. =^=

But I’m not there… he thought again. Do… do they have to die? Is my being there… saving them… is that the cause?

~ Lt. Rodier - CoS

“Mr. Rodier, please tell me this isn’t related to our previous discussion, and that you found something in your searches.”

Capt Foley - CO

“Sir, I’ve found nothing of use.” He lowered his voice and moved a step closer. “I have no idea what’s going on, sir. I’ll follow your orders to the letter and nothing more.”

~ Lt. Rodier - CoS

Aaron nodded in understand. “Secure the ship, and help coordinate any necessary supplies needing to go over to the station. I don’t know what started this over on Jupiter Station, but I don’t want it making its way over to the Challenger.”

=^= Jupiter Station this is Captain Foley. Cmdr. Halcyone is on her way to help where she can, and we are standing by to assist as needed. =^=

=/\=Understood, Challenger,=/\= came the voice of Captain Alshoi, who sounded exceedingly calm under the circumstannces.

“And Lieutenant. See if you can tap into the stations security feeds. Let’s try to get a feed on what is happening over there.”

Capt Foley - CO

~Mischief Maker

“Aye.” Henry turned to NE Kyos, snapping his fingers and indicating for her to move to the secondary ops station. She immediately started working to get ahold of the Jupiter Station feeds, with Rodier’s credentials assisting her.

~ Lt. Rodier - CoS

But for some reason, the request did not go through. His credentials failed.

~Mischief Maker

Henry frowned. “Try it again,” he said. “Computer, why was our access denied?”

~ Henry Rodier - CoS

“Unknown. Credentials not recognized.”

~Mischief Maker

Aaron was nervously tapping his foot as he waited for the view from the station to come up. He hated this waiting game, but there was only so much he could do. He had the right people in the right places, and he had to trust them to do their jobs.

His ears perked up slightly as he heard Henry. “Problem Lieutenant?”

Capt Foley - CO

It had been a week since Ang had barged in on the Captain to complain about the lack of leadership in Engineering, only to find she was the one who had been left in charge. Since then, she had shifted from Third Shift Supervisor to Chief Engineer on First Shift. Now, she entered the bridge and moved to the engineering console. Seeing the stats all in green, she took a breath and turned to the Captain as he asked one of the Lieutenants if they had a problem. Not aware what had transpired, she frowned slightly wondering what, or who, had managed to raise the hackles on the CO this time.

LT Ang’er To’kar
Chief Engineer

=^=Commander Halcyone to Captain Foley. Are you picking up my transmission? I wanted to give you an update on the situation here.=^=

Halcyone, XO

Aaron nodded towards Ang as he reached over and tapped the comm channel at his chair.

=^= We hear you Commander. What updates do you have for us? =^=

Capt Foley - CO

Ang remained at her post. Despite her outbreak when she was promoted, or perhaps because of it, she had sort of assumed a self protective role over the Captain. She had been quick to squelch and qualms or complaints she heard about him, and was quick to champion him to anyone who doubted his motives or drive. Hearing him respond to the XO, she could only guess more had happened in her last two hours of maintenance updates than she realized. She made a mental note to be more accessible and on the bridge more often.

Lt Ang

=^=Yes a quick update. Currently, the situation for the cadets has not improved. However, Lieutenant Russo is working through various solutions to release the occupants of the lab. Dr. Rahm is on standby for medical care after we do get them out. Lieutenant Commander Sozano is ready to provide moral and mental support. =^= She looked back and lowered her voice, =^=Commander I think we should hope for the best but…prepare for the worst. In any case, I do believe that we will be successful in getting our cadets back to the Challenger safely. Afterward, I think it should be mandatory they each have a visit with the Counselor to assess the impact this situation has had on their minds.=^=

Halcyone, XO

A few moments later, Jupiter Station’s status shifted and they a message came through from Operations indicating that the emergency was over.

~Mischief Maker

Those on the bridge could hear Pilars reaction to the door opening. “My goodness! Glory be to the stars! The door has opened! They are free!”
=^=Captain I am happy to report that everyone looks well. Dr. Rahm has set up triage to evaluate everyone, however I am sure everyone will live.=^=

Halcyone, XO

=^= That’s great news Commander. =^= Aaron said with a sigh of relief. He hadn’t even realized he had been so tense.

=^= Help the Station crew get cleaned up and let’s get all of our people back to the Challenger. Pass along my congratulations to the team there on a job well done. =^=

Aaron settled back into his chair as he could finally relax. They had made it. Hopefully next time he wouldn’t be stuck just sitting around waiting.

Capt Foley - CO

=^=Will do Captain. Halcyone out.=^=

Halcyone, XO

As the excitement died down, Henry walked slowly over to the Captain, leaving behind a confused NE Kyos. “Captain… I’m no longer in the system. How…?”

~ Lt. Rodier - CoS

Aaron leaned back in his chair and looked over at Henry.

“On the Challenger? Or when you were trying to get into Jupiter Station?” he asked in a lowered voice. No reason to potentially alarm any of the crew.
