“Commodore, do you think the Forseth ships are friend or foe?” Sifeda asked.
”..Hard to say at this point Commander, I would surmise that they are neither till shown otherwise. They probably are detecting the energy emissions from the phaser and torpedo fire from the Volgograd, and their local defense agency wants these three ships to investigate. Unfortunately we can not yet tell if they have armaments of any kind..” She said.
“Full spread aye,” Anders responded, “This’ll bruise.”

As the phaser beams lanced out they would be seen to pass through the snake creature to no effect, seems their being out of phase meant they could not harm the creature. Drudoc was quick to reply to the Volograd’s captain as a result. =/\= Negative Captain, we can not harm the creature due to not being on the same phased plain as you are. We suspect if you can disabled the other head though it could disabled the creature..=/\= She said
Mar shifted in her seat as the comments flew back and forth. When the question of friend or foe came up, she shook her head. “Let’s not assume foe. It’s definitely the wrong attitude. I would suggest a hail to them and perhaps a quick comment on what is transpiring. With any luck, they will aid or stand aside at least. The other option is, an actual call for aide. And see how they respond.” She had already put the creature’s known info, the documents of the torn apart ships and the temporal anomaly info showing their own in ability to cross the threshold line or risk time differentials for themselves.
Sifeda nodded as she agreed with the Counselor.
=/\= Understood Commodore! We’re—=/\= The Captain began but then on screen another attempt by the two headed snake to bring itself broadside to lash out at the the evasive maneuvering Volgograd happened, this time the tail hit the ship harder then before in a full blow. The result sent the Federation ship tumbling out of control. The creature tried to move to grapple as before with this but seems luck was on the combative ship’s side as someone got control enough to dive the ship back out of the way.
Drudoc took the pause in communications to reply to Mar, “..At this stage I am in agreement, open a wide band hail see if we can get contact to the Forseth, identify that we are friendly in intentions, and are currently dealing with an ally of ours near there system being attacked by a giant space faring snake..” She said leaving the CNS to attend to this.
Sifeda nodded, “It could be the only chance the Volograd has to survive.”
=/\= Urgh, damn that smarts! Helm bring us about and put the comet between us and the creature! Ark Angel shields down to 43% We got several structural damages across much of the ship from that blow, my engineering team reports we couldn’t get to warp now even if we wanted..=/\= She said.
=/\= Understood Captain. We’re trying to find a solution to the phasing problem now. Given the creature seems to turn broad side to attack, suggest you use higher mobility and other means to lessen its chance to do so like with the comet and other stellar debris. Also three Forseth ships in the system are on an intercept course, ETA 4 minutes to your location. We are attempting a general hail to ascertain their intentions and warn them of the creature’s hostile intent..=/\= Drudoc said.
=/\= Understood! =/\= She said.

Kyle spoke up, “I think the Counsellor is right, the more we fire on this thing, the more hostile this situation is probably gonna be. I think the only tactical strategy at this point, regardless of how viable, is to stick ourselves between the Volograd and the creature, rerouting power to the shields of course.”
-Lieutenant Kyle Anders: Chief of Security-
”..Given our phaser fire just passed through the creature to no effect its likely the creature is unaware of our presenence and would ignore or phase through us as well..” Drudoc replied.
“I am leary of placing ourselves in danger with shields less than 50%! We must convince the Forseth to assist the Volograd.”
OOC: To clarify the VOLOGRAD’s shields are less then 50% Ark Angel’s are still at a 100%
Despite these words it was clear Drudoc was willing to try anything for the moment, “..Helm maneuver us between the creature and the Volgograd, Lieutenant Anders, fire phasers again maybe if we get closer we’ll phase into their temporal plane and can contribute..” She said.
