As things started to move quickly, Mark tapped his communicator. =^= SInclair to Engineering. Track the jeffries tubes and environmental systems, and track the ship systems for anything out of ordinary. Let me know if anything comes up out of the ordinary. =^=

With that out of the way, Mark eyed the probe, which was still drawing the engineer’s attention. He headed to the weapons locker and tried get the XO’s attention and he secured a phaser. “Commander, I would like to keep studying the probe. It could give us more clues as to what is going on, especially as the lifeform - if that’s what it is - isn’t acting exactly like Changeling.”

-Lt. (j.g.) Mark Sinclair, CE

Karina passed Sinclair a phaser and nodded, acknowleding his silent request to talk. “I think that’s the best idea, Lt. That sphere/probe/transport whatever it is, obviously is able to contain whatever got loose. Just make sure you keep your partner close to hang, just in case. Get who ever and whatever you need.”
Lt Cmdr Enger, XO

=^=”Commander I want this thing off my ship As Soon As Possible do I make myself clear!”=^= came the captains reply before she apparently switched focus =^=”Lieutenant Sinclair I want you and your engineering teams to begin working on a way to stop this thing from getting through our forcefields”=^= The Captain added before the comm was cut

“Easier said then done,” Mark said quietly to himself. He wouldn’t be able to stop the creature from going through the forcefields until he knew how it went through the forcefields. Which would mean getting a scan of it when it did so…

(OOC: Who is still in this thread my character can partner up with?)

BJ went and obtained a phaser. He was never comfortable using a weapon. Not that he couldn’t; he just didn’t like it, “Okay who needs a partner.”

OCC: Sorry for not being more active. I’ve had a sinus issue for the last week.

Janzen

“You can go with me Cmdr. Tell me, if this is a morphogenic creature, what’s it going to need first. Maybe we can determine where it will go.”
Lt Cmdr Enger, XO

“Yes Ma’am.”BJ responded. “If it is that; our creature will need a stable moderate temperature; say around twenty degrees celsius.”

Janzen

“What do you think hotter or colder? Keep the shuttle bay at a stead temperature and change the temperature 5 maybe 10 degrees either way and lure it back in here? Try to trap it back in the sphere?” Karina tapped her combadge, =^=Enger to Sh’Zoarhi. Captain we are going to change the temperature everywhere on the ship except the shuttle bay. Try and lure the creature back here so we can get it back in the sphere.=^=
Lt Cmdr Enger, XO

the captains voice came back quickly =^=”Understood…Though are we making it colder across the ship or hotter?”=^= there was a sense of urgency in wanting to know which way they were going of course the fact the captain was an Andorian it would make sense that she would be asking that

Tralla

(OOC: I’m not sure yet who my character is partnered up with, but I’m assuming they’re back at the probe by now - sorry for the cut like that.)

As Mark returned to the probe, he crouched down again to study the object’s mechanisms. He concentrated his tricorder scans on the inner sphere, and how it was connected to the rest of the mechnaism, hoping to get some clues about the creature from that. Overhearing the conversation between the XO and Janzen, Mark made it a point to scan the temperature of the inner sphere and see if there was anything resembling a temperature control.

Mark also wanted to see if he could solve the origins of the sphere, but he would leave that for those working on the recording.

-Lt. (j.g.) Mark Sinclair, CE

That was a valid question. From what BJ knew it didn’t really matter which direction the temperature went. “As far as I know; either direction is good. They need a stable temperature to keep their form. Which ever direction you choose; I’ll leave to you.”

Janzen

Karina nodded and tapped her combadge again, =^=Captain we will be lowering the temperature 10 degrees every where but the shuttle bay. We want to shock it’s system. I also suggest that we put a command lock on the computer and environmental controls so that if this thing is able it can’t reverse the process.=^=

“Computer lower ship wide temperature 10 degrees. Lock out environmental controls to command access only. Authorization Enger Alpha 9 Omega.”
Lt Cmdr Enger, XO

“I’m assuming that while in the sphere, it was dormant,” Wendell said. “It was only aroused after we took it aboard to study the probe. And I don’t think that whoever sent that probe sent the creature with it.”

With so many folks in the bay, Danora didn’t make for the weapons right away. She moved back up to the probe as others backed off to get their phasers and was already hooking up the probe to the computer terminal on the wall. The segregation of the system meant anything downloaded wouldn’t infect or cross into the ship’s computers. The down side was the ship wouldn’t be able to access it, either. But right now, with the Captain bellowing wanting it gone, she wanted as much information from it as she could get before it once more became a trap for the entity and went back into space.

As she heard the discussions behind her, it dawned on her that the cold of space must have kept it dormant till it thawed out in the bay and get loose at the first opportunity. It also occurred to her it may not be hostile but scared out of its mind. Either way, she was more focused on the sphere than anything else happening around her.

The temp change took place across the ship, except for the shuttlebay.

The connection to the isolated computer that Danora set up was successful, though it had taken some tweaking. Now both Sinclair and Danora could start to examine things more closely. First of interest was the age of the sphere itself. The original scans had placed it around 800 years old, but possibly more interesting is that the sphere’s systems seemed designed to maintain the inner sphere and the shielding on the outer sphere. It was protective.- designed to keep things in.

The technology was sophisticated, and indicated it came from a warp-capable society but it was probably a little less developed than the Federation currently.

~Mischief Maker

Protective covering… The idea came to Danora as she read the information that skittered around the monitor. She moved back and forth between the console and the sphere as bits and pieces of information came to her. Not sure if anyone was even listening, she spoke up enough to let others hear, but not to anyone in particular. “I think this was meant to hold that thing. The outer shell is protective in nature. I think this may have been a discovery craft for the thing that got out. I’m guessing it spooked when we stuck ourselves inside its ship and tried to finagle things around.” She finally turned to see who had been paying attention as she smiled and shrugged. “Like a giant hand suddenly thrusting itself into the Memorial. I think we’d scramble to get out of the way as well.”

Karina, her Intel and security background showing itself. “It’s a mini ship or containment? Any indication that there were controls for environment, piloting, sensors inside the second sphere? Where that entity could access the controls, or were they all out of reach? If not I think it’s a better bet it was a prison. If I was imprisoned in that thing, and criminal, I would run first chance I got too. If it is an exploration vessel I don’t care how big the hand, I’m not abandoning my ship to hide amongst aliens. And if it is an exploration vessel why would it not be sending out a message or attempt to communicate? I want to know how that thing works and how they got this thing inside.” Karina’s first responsibility was to the safety of the ship and crew. She couldn’t afford to make assumptions.
Lt Cmdr Enger, XO

While Danora was going back and forth between the sphere and console, Mark had literally shifted on to his back, with his head part way inside the probe to get a better look of the interior, positioning himself so his right hand could bring in his tricorder as well, and with his left hand shining a flashlight from outside toward the inside.. “I don’t see anything that resembles any obvious controls,” Mark said aloud for the others to hear. “But I’ll be frank, nothing here is that familiar. And how a morphogenic being would interact with solid technology isn’t exactly Starfleet 101… I’m going to take some scans so we can get a closer look.”

With that, Mark began scanning the interior of both spheres so that the computer could render a holographic image later.

-Lt. (j.g.) Mark Sinclair, CE

She had asked a series of good questions. “Who says it can’t be both commander. You don’t just imprison criminals. Could this be an exile? It would explain why it ran. If I was exiled and someone opened it; I’d get out of town.”
