“I can re-route the probe we sent a few hours ago to where the disruption is occurring, Commander,” Trainor replied as he brought up probe controls. “But, I’d recommend against using our deflectors in case we receive a feedback loop from the other side.” The Operations Chief waited for Soval’s response.
“Thank you Mr. Trainor. Every bit of information we gain helps complete the puzzle. If any one else can contribute please do so.”
As the probe approached the disturbance, the data would become garbled for a brief moment as it passed through a cloud of gas. As it exited on the other side, the closer image was more clear. It appeared to be the wave-like effect that occurs when a Romulan ship cloaked or uncloaked, but nothing appeared after the effect happened. The energy spike continued on the Montezuma as it had before: beginning just a moment after the disturbance occurred.
“Putting the feed on the viewscreen,” LtCmdr Trainor announced after the probe passed through the gas. Tenzing’s guess was that the Montezuma may have been messing with cloak technology, and somehow failed.
Sharah watched the image, and turned back to the sensors. “Lt Cmdr Trainor can we get the probe to determine if their is an energy feed coming from the Montezuma towards the disturbance? We know there is a spike that happens on her right before the visual disturbance but can we trace where that energy spike is going to?” She wasn’t even sure a probe could do that. What a time for her to be promoted.

“After the addressing the Montezuma’s energy output, I would still like to analyze the displacement of the gas making up the nebula. Knowing the general size and shape of the object might prove helpful.”
While Trainor worked with the probe, Sharah pulled up the images from the nebula and then the image of the disturbance. The Lt Cmdr wanted an image, and that was just a sketch. She may not be familiar with the controls for doing this kind of thing, but she could free hand it. She turned the images slowly frame by frame and pulled the details and the way the gasses in the nebula moved. Marking them on the screen and tracing the shape and depth. Then she looked at where the disturbance shimmered and repeated the process adding detail to what she was trying to make out. At the same time “Computer measure the movement, density, and shape of displacement of the nebula’s gasses. Then do the same for the visual disturbance we have observed. Extrapolate and image of what is in the that space.”

“I’m still thinking some sort of cloaking device is a factor,” Trainor mumbled to anyone close enough to hear him. Sensors were being of no significant use, as it couldn’t comprehend the data being sent to it. Hopefully, the Science Chief would have more luck with dissecting the images than he did.
