Danora slipped in just as the CO began speaking. She didn’t miss anything, but realized she was going to have to be quicker than on time now that she was the new Chief Engineer. She slid quietly into the chair nearest the door and listened. Distress signals and lack of information made for bad bedfellows. Already she wasn’t looking forward to what was coming. Without thinking, Danora spoke up. “Can we at least get the public records for the place? I mean, weapon system capabilities, interface abilities, etc? I’m thinking we need to know if auto defenses will try and shoot us down, and whether or not we can access the computers without actually being there.”
Sadly, she had a few things to learn about being a department head. Like not blurting out your mind when someone else was in charge of the party.
Lt Danora Allance
JT thought about the Engineers question a bit then asked one of his own that tied in “Are there any public records? This place has been super secret squirrel level classified for decades. I heard the Tal-shiar is jealous of how tight lipped the information is.”
She gave her XO a strange look “Yes…well As our Elustrious XO has just stated the Base has been so tight-lipped there is no such thing as public information pertaining to this base we are really going in completely blind” she said “Our task is to go in see what sent the signal even if its just a glitch in the 70-year-old computers or if someone is causing trouble I want us all to be on full alert and sharp there really is no way to plan for this But Thats why I have the best crew lets be ready for anything Tralla said smiling “Lieutenant Beckett How is getting the Fighter wing set up?” she asked
Jack listened to the briefing with a very calm expression. He didn’t particularly like the idea of not knowing what they were being sent to do but he had no questions as of yet, this seemed to be more of a Security threat than anything he’d need to work out. In his thoughts he was already preparing what they might need from his Medical department.

To clarify, publicly available is- the location, average climate (inhospitably cold and snowy), and that a request was submitted to Starfleet to put a warning buoy out so people avoid the area. That request was denied as there was “no reason to travel there to begin with.”
“They’re squared away. A little short on personnel at the moment. Got enough for at least a one or two ship reconnaissance sortie between myself and Lieutenant Farren. Get in get out without being detected, or at least being small and fast enough to not get shot at. If the base is seventy years old, shouldn’t be too hard. Unless it’s been kept up to date, whatever defenses should be antiquated. Or lower grade civilian gear.” Idly she stared at the map. “Is this just ‘Eridion’ or is this Gamma Eridion, ma’am?”
She hated going in blind. At least in a situation like this. What one didn’t know, could still kill them. In fact, it was usually what you didn’t know about that did you in. “Also, I can try to reach out to some friends and see if they have anything relevant.” They weren’t everyone’s favorite, but Section 31, the intelligence branch of Starfleet did get results. And with her background in intel? Yeah, she still had plenty of favors and friends to call on.
Lt Beckett, CoS
Maize spoke up through the speakers in the room “The corrodents we are heading to do not match the Gamma Eridion system Lieutenant Beckett I assume this is a different Eridion system” the AI informed the group simply
“If you want to try as long as you don’t get into trouble with higher ups for sticking your nose where it does not belong I want us to enter the system under yellow alert I want our shields up and weapons able to be brought up on a hair-trigger” she said before turning to Allance “How are you settling into Engineering Lieutanant Allance?” she asked looking to take this moment to check on her crew
Danora’s head snapped up from where she was reading what little there was about their destination. She didn’t like freezing temperatures because it meant things tended to lock up. “Ma’am? Oh, fine. Thank you. The ship is ready to go at your word. Warp capabilities at your command, Ma’am.” She smiled with a confident nod. She had inherited an amazing crew and there was little for her to do to make sure things were ready on all fronts for whatever was to come. “Transporters, emergency holograms and all other ship functions operating at peak efficiency.” The assistance of the AI was crucial in keeping many of the systems online and operable above and beyond what they were when the Memorial left space dock on its maiden voyage. As the new Chief Engineer, Dani was glad she had chosen AI Specialist as her study line. Otherwise, she would have felt lost. “And I will see to it that everything coming in contact with the harsh weather we are given to understand is there, is operating above and beyond as well.”
She looked back down at her PaDD and the console at her seat feeling like she had suddenly been rambling aimlessly again. It was a nervous habit.
that’s great to hear” she said nodding at Denora “BJ Hows things in the Science department?” she asked slowly going through each department
BJ didn’t have much to report. Things in the science department hadn’t really change. The only change was he was now in charge. “So far; so good. Have some extra staff that’s come aboard. But, nothing has changed since I became the chief.”
JT sat quietly as the CO checked in with each department. JT was new as an XO but not to this ship. He knew this crew would be ready for anything. Though, he had to admit to himself that the thought that those new fighters would be deploying without him stung a bit, he knew when he took the job he wouldn’t be doing much flying anymore.
Medical How are we doing?” she asked moving on from her husbands report
Jack looked up from his thoughts “Sickbay is well stocked and prepared for most eventualities. I’ll be going over our medical kits before we arrive and preparing trauma teams if necessary.” He said in the calm professional manner he usually spoke with.
Dr. Grey - cMO
“Very well then I Think I would actually like us to go to Yellow alert half an hour out from the system just to be on the safe side otherwise Good work crew Dismissed we will figure out what is going on once we get to the system” she finished “Dismissed”
JT made looked down at his PADD at their ETA and made the necessary arrangements for the Yellow alert. With any luck the Yellow alert wouldn’t need to turn into a red alert.
Danora nodded with the others and gathered up her PaDD before heading out. Yellow Alert meant they needed to do some extra securing in engineering. Smiling a bit brighter as she passed the XO, she nodded, “Sir..”
He may be new to the XO position, but Dani was glad he was one of them before hand. A brand new XO not familiar with ship or crew wasn’t something she had been looking forward to.
