Information soon came up for Locke the systems were thankfully not encrypted.

Research at this base seemed to be imparted on the idea of FTL travel, but instead of a single ship they were looking at whole ideas for harnessing some alien technology deeper in the base that could be scaled up to transport the entire planet.

Nissek in turn finding this would come upon other information packets that showed numerous failure rates in simulations ranging from tectonic shaking to whole planetary destruction due to gravity waves.

Between them they could deduce that possibly if they could access this alien technology deeper in the base and figure out how to turn it off they would in turn, turn off the gravity anomalies keeping them trapped here. It seems the technology for planetary ‘warping’ worked in part from what they were seeing but had the nasty side effect of not having an ‘off switch effect’ to avoid the gravity pulses they now faced.

Naomi frowned when the information cropped up. Her right eyebrow rose up in surprise and she dove deeper, the information starting to piece itself together. This was not good in her opinion as she briefly summarized it for her fellow crewmate.

“‘So, I found something interesting. Thankfully it’s not encrypted. It appears they wanted to use the idea of FTL travel to transport a whole planet. They have some alien technology within the base, but I’m not finding much about the earth quakes. What about you?”

-ENS Naomi D. Locke, Sci

OOC: I figured a quick share of information can lead to a more natural result and gives us both something to post before we report and shut this thing down.
-Janice B.

OOC: No problem! Just indicate when you’re ready to move on or try other info searches!

GM CockRoach

“Why in the world would someone try to move an entire planet?? That seems very dangerous and kinda stupid. Unless you know exactly where you’re going and can get there really fast, a planet might die from lack of a sun…”

  • Lt. Fleet, who has definitely been in the background quietly this whole time

Naomi immediately jumped in her seat as her head turned, realizing Kenneth had followed them down. She blinked and let her heart settle down, the muscle strained against her chest. With a deep breath, she addressed him.

“I don’t even think that’s possible based on everything I’ve read about the subject. Ships are at least self contained and protected by the hull. A planet… is bloody well not. “ She licked her lips before she moved on.

“Also, have you found anything else while we were examining the computer files? Because we should consider leaving and joining the XO on the ship. What do you two think?” She shuffled the stuff about the desk in search of anything to download the information and transport it back with her. For a moment, she regretted not bringing a datapad to connect to it.

Kenny shook his head, shrugging. “I didn’t see anything of interest. I agree, it’s probably a good idea to head back up and return to the ship. I’m curious to know if the other team discovered anything of importance.”

Fleet, Helm

The thought they could explore the rest of the base might be in order too so they could give a full report.....

GM CockRoach

OOC: Jumping back in, apologies

IC:
“I’ve found nothing else of interest, either. Perhaps there’s somewhere else we can find some information?” She asked allowed, not particularly wanting to return with just about nothing to report.

Noami listened to both Kenny and Nissek. One was in favor of returning to the ship and combining information, ensuring their ship didn’t leave them behind. The other wanted to satisfy her curiosity and ensure they collected everything they needed before leaving. She weighed the options since her decision would be the tie breaker.

“You had to make me the tie breaker, didn’t you?” She gave a mused accusation toward the pair.

“I feel there’s more in the base, but we can’t waste time. Do you think we can find a lead where to search next within the computer? The XO suggested the bay level, but I don’t want to waste time if there’s no evidence of anything there.”As she spoke, Naomi was still looking for some sort of data storage unit. If she didn’t find any soon, she would give up on the endeavor and try to memorize everything the best she could.

-ENS Naomi D. Locke, Sci

Nissek pulled her data pad out of its pouch and offered it to Naomi. “We can save what we’ve found, at least. I would still prefer we search further,” she said. “If there is more to be found, it may be the answer to our mystery.”
