”..Alright let’s get the meeting started..” Drudoc said.
A slightly disheveled Trainor entered Briefing Room still looking over his duty PaDD. “By now everyone would have received the scans on your PaDD that Ark Angel has taken since our arrival.” The Operations Chief stated as he took his place at the table. “While we’re currently in a good place when it comes to supply levels, we aren’t sure how long we’ll be here. I’ve allocated some supplies to the science department so they can get started on a hydroponic bay or two, which will put less strain on our replicator system.”
Tenzing scrolled down the list on his PaDD and stopped. “You’ll also find some points from Voyager’s time in the Delta Quadrant along with those from Einstein’s crew, which could assist us in coming up with our own action plan to conserve hard to find supplies and resources.” Setting his PaDD down, the Operations Officer wiped his sweaty palms on his legs. If he could just focus on the mission at hand, he wouldn’t have to let their predicament over take him.
Since Trainor took the lead Drudoc nodded to his experiences, they would no doubt prove valuable. “..A good start Lt Commander..” She said.
Miz’uki came in right after Trainor though she looked as though she was in even worse shape mentally she had in her hands a pile of padds she flopped into the chair and waited for the meeting to start
Drudoc forgave Miz’uki for being a little late, their situation would certainly put anyone on a distracted level. “..Lt Miz’uki what’s the status of things for the ship and in engineering?” She asked.

We…uhhh....warp power is back online impulse power That menace knocked us for a loop however we have recovered and should be able to go about finding a way back” she said looking through her massive pile of padds and rubbing at one of her eyes
”..We’ll get home Lieutenant, I have confidence in this crew to figure this out..” She said to reassure the young department head.
Rainns read over the information on his padd. He was puzzled at the ship’s predicament. Q had apparently stranded them out in the middle of nowhere for the heck of it. He raised his eyebrows. “This may be a stupid question,” he spoke up after a moment of silence. “Does anyone know why this has happened? Is there some reason we’ve been stranded out here?”
”..Evidently the Continuum have been ‘watching’ our progress for the past year or so. They are having an internal debate wondering how we react to extremes, hence why we got tossed so far I imagine.” Drudoc explained.

Turning to Sharah then, “..What do we got to report from science?” She asked.
Sharah had been on the bridge, but other than being tested, again, she wasn’t sure why Q did what he did. Someone else, hopefully had an answer for that.
Sharah spoke up next, “For the most part, science withstood the trip with minimal damage. We had a fire in one of the labs, but it was put out quickly and didn’t spread to anything vital or dangerous. The damaged area has already been repaired. I’ve instructed my department that everything gets recycled and anything that can be cleaned and reused should be, rather than making new, to save ship’s energy. All probes have been checked and are in working order. We have, right now, a full supply, but I recommend using them carefully. Arboretum 3 is flourishing,” she turned to Hayley, “Half the crop is for medicines and we already have a stock of emergency survival like I showed you. Chemistry is already working on refining the process to make them purer and hypo ready.”
Drudoc nodded listening.
She turned back towards the captain, XO, Miz’uki, and Trainor. “The asteroid that came on board, is probably the best thing that happened to us. It’s boridium. Now in our sector of the universe, boridium is a synthetic element, it’s used as a power source in things like exocomps. Now this asteroid is naturally made, we’re still working out how, but that really isn’t the point. That asteroid contains enough boridium to power our impulse engines for 3 months. I would recommend picking up more. It can be used to power just about anything with some adjustments.” She looked at Miz’uki, “We could use someone from engineering to help En Genard with the project.”
Looking to Lt Miz’uki she said, “..See that someone from your staff is free to help Ensign Gerard with that.” Drudoc said. Then nodded for Fayth to continue.
Andrea the head of the civilian staff made a valid point. Our Arboretums, in total make up an entire deck, and they are full of oxygen producing plants. We could use that naturally produced air supply in the case of emergencies. She’s also asked if we want her to convert Arboretum 1, being the largest, into a working farm. Computer science is still working on translating the signals we picked up and we are pulling as many as we can to give the computer more to work with. If anyone has a background in languages we could use the help. En Riley and his team are continuing to map the area and work on sensors. If every department could give me a list of essential or even non essential raw materials we use to keep the ship running, we will add them to mandatory scans. Find it as we go so we don’t run out.”
Drudoc nodded again.
She turned to Cpt Andone, “With your permission Captain, I’m taking a group to the shuttle bay to check the shuttles and auxiliary craft to make sure their sensors and probes are in working order and stocked. No need to find out when we need to use them.” And the work gave the crews something to DO even if it wasn’t necessary. Science had been busy since they’d arrived, and they had worked hard, and fast to get this information together.

”..Of course, coordinate with the departments as you need Lieutenant..” She said.
Clasping her hands looked to Lt Rainns “..What’s the report from security?” She asked.
