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.
OOC: Ok to start wrapping this up....
The NE at helm spoke up “..Commander we’re dropping out of warp near the Montezuma now..” Ne Wilkins said. True to his words the Ark Angel dropped out of warp near the slightly smaller Galaxy class refit explorer. It seemed intact though showed no signs of battle damage. As sensors cleared up now much closer they could tell that the earlier distortions were in fact a strange form distress call being used. In this case scans showed the Montezuma’s long range comms were out of order and they were using a series of tachyon pulses in a timed measure to hopefully attract attention through the interference of the nebula nearby. Its just that no one had tried to analyze the pulse pattern that they picked this clue up.
Now within short range comm range the Montezuma hailed them =/\= Captain Charles to the Ark Angel, good to hear from a friendly face. =/\= The male voice said. Checks on computer records did show a Captain Charles in command of the Montezuma. =/\= I figure you either picked up our improvised SOS or more likely you ran into those who jumped ship in a panic for their own means to pursue their wild goals and wound up back here. =/\= He said.
