“That is what I’m talking about. I’ll say more but not here,” Calloway said keeping her voice low as they walked briskly.

They didn’t have a lot of time before things spun quickly (and potentially) out of control. He’d have the access to get in and she waited for him to enter in the access codes.

Inside the lab, everything was as one wild expect. Clearly Faye hadn’t been in the middle of anything major when she had been summoned, and had locked down everything appropriately. She nodded in approval. Good girl she mused as she moved over the main bank of computers and took a seat. “Believe it or not, I and her father taught Faye most of what she knows about encryption and decryption.” He of course knew of Faye’s background, so that meant he knew Shara’s as well. “But she’s better at it than even I am. I can effectively lock down this lab from accessing other parts of the ship but I think we both don’t want to disable the new set-up. How far do you want me to interfere with her work?” she asked, casting a side glance at Cochrane as her fingers began to move swiftly, accessing the backend of the system with authorization codes that had no problem getting through. that was good! It meant she hadn’t been instructed to lock it down with unknowable programs. One point in their (and Faye’s) Favour.

Making sure the door was secure, he said “I dont want you to interfere at all, actually.. I want to activate power level displays on the nodes… all of them. Do you know Morse Code, Commander?”

Cochrane, CO

Shara’s expression shifted into a grin. “Indeed I do,” she said as she settled into the system and nodded. “What message do you want to send?”

Suddenly the lights went off on the lab.

It only lasted five seconds, and when the returned everything seemed normal.

~Faye Calloway, Fugitive

Shara couldn’t help but laugh. “Nice one Baby Girl,” she said as she focused on the screen before her. “I want to see how far they’ve tracked her, so let’s listen in a little on the chatter,” she said as she sent Faye the coded message that Cochrane came up with.

=^= Wyatt, no joy on the scanners. But we are seeing multiple activations of the Jefferey Tube hatches, she’s somehow bypassed my lockout. I’m rolling the security codes in an attempt to keep her from bypassing again. =^=

=^= Darach to Wyatt. And she’s got access to the powergrid. She’s a step ahead of my lock downs. Still nothing on the sensors, she must have something scattering our scanners. =^=

=^= Darach, begin venting Jefferies tubes the safety protocol will stop you from doing it if there are any life signs in them. All the crew should be avoiding them and populated in communal areas. When you find the first Jefferies tubes seal all exits and vent adjoining tubes then lock them with authorisation for only me Wyatt out=^=

=^= Lieutenant, I have to voice my objection. With the computer unable to track her life signs, any safeguards in place probably won’t work. We might end up venting the entire network, trapping her in a section without any air. =^=

=^=Then you should watch the control readouts extremely carefully, chief. Do I need to remind you that Miss Calloway opened fire on three of our command staff? We’re not trying to kill her, make sure there is an audible and visual tone post venting maybe she’ll realize she’s stuck and give herself up. Wyatt out=^=

For a moment Shara froze. What in the actual hell? Rage swam through her as she shot Cochrane a look. “Since when does your crew think it okay to use potentially lethal force on an assailant?!?” she said, venom lacing her voice. Shara Calloway did not panic easily, but this was not a typical situation, and it was rather personal. Still, even factoring that out, there was something ruthless about the action that seem incongruent with the situation. She had expected them to take down Faye, hard if necessary, but not once after Faye had outlined the plan did Shara think it could come to close to the edge. And yet, neither her nor Cochrane could intervene unless they wanted to give away the plan and rick their advantage with whomever was pulling strings to frame Faye and other officers like her.
