Once the group gave the go ahead he engaged the transporter beam. As they all were whisked away they soon emerged again into reality on the small landing port of the Vuzavue colony. It seems the beam down site had gotten mis-targeted due to the storm as they were in the center of the landing pad outside, and were soon drenched from head to toe by the torrent of rain and bits of hail. The run to the lobby nearby was almost 100 yards before they would dash through the lobby doors, to a pair of confused looking men. One cardassian the other human, “..Why did your transporter chief beam you down outside??..” the man asked wearing a blue civilian pair of pants and bright green t-shirt. “..It’s one of the worst storms we’ve had in almost three years here, you are lucky the lightening didn’t strike any of you!” he said.
Jade ran in to the lobby “Oh Trust me. If he gets me back, he won’t be a transporter chief any more” she said annoyance clear in her voice.
”..Oh so it’s one of those things, right..” The blue pants wearing man said with a nod.
“My vote goes to a weather net.”T’Shura said as she ran a hand over her head to try to swipe the water out of her hair. Good thing her equipment was covered and buttoned up tight or it would have gotten soaked. Mind you most Starfleet away team equipment was durable.
Wendell looked up at the storm and shook his head a bit to get it even more soaked. “I love thunderstorms,” he admitted. “As a youth, I used to watch the storms roll in on the Mariposa colony.”
Tera shook her head and flicked her hair back. She wanted to have a look at those transporter logs when she got back tot he Memorial.
“Nothing like a little rain to let you know you’re planet side.” she said good naturedly.
“Sorry for the not so great entrance” Jade said respectfully “I’m Commander Jade Jones the XO of the Memorial.” she said introducing herself. “This is Lieutenant T’Shura. Lieutenant Tera, Ensign Snart, Lieutenant Commander Vaughn and Ensign Solar.” she said introducing each member of her away team.
“Don’t forget me, Lt Jozan T’Kev, Chief Engineer.” Jozan stated with a smile. He too was wet, but didn’t mind it.
Ensign Snart who was drying his hair by shaking his head and using his hands, heard his name and stopped to look up properly at the two gentlemen in front of him. He gave a courtesy nod towards them when he was introduced.
The blue pant’s man was about to reply when....
Jades commbadge then chirped =^=”Bridge to Away Team did you guys make it down ok?”=^= Tralla’s voice said over the comms clearly just checking in on her away team to make sure they all made it in one piece
Jade tapped her badge =^= We made it down. However we we dropped outside in the middle of a bloody storm. We need to talk to the useless NE in the transporter room=^= she said annoyance clear in her voice.
“I will talk to them, they are my responsibility.” Jozan replied, preferring to keep this incident at the lowest level possible.
”..Man sucks to be that chief..” The unnamed Cardassian said coming over. “..Vuzavue Team Leader 3rd class for the Biology Division Carn Shuffer. Good to meet you all even given the circumstances..” He said offering a friendly hand to shake. His grip went felt was firm, but politely. Gesturing then, “..The blue and green clothing man, is Vuzave Team Leader 3rd class in the Physics Division, Mr Carleston Mudd..” he said.
Carleston Mudd smiled, “..No relation to the infamous Harry Mudd I assure you, so nothing to worry about!” Then pausing to wink in a coy manner he grinned, “..or is there??” he winked slyly to the ladies of the away team.
Rolling his eyes, Shuffer continued, “..If you would follow me we can escort you to the Governor’s office. I was told to expect your team to get some kind of tasks to help us out here..” he said gesturing to a clear glass turbolift which the team mostly could get in without bumping elbows. Once everyone was settled he said, “..Governor’s office, level 2..” he said and with a beep and chime sound the lift rose slowly up the clear glass tube peering out they could see the storm ranging over the outside areas of the buildings for the colony.
A sudden lightening strike nearby struck it seems a forcefield but its impact still made the ground tremor slightly with the force of it. “..Hasn’t been this bad of storms like I said for almost 3 years! Even then those were less fierce then this one. Thankfully no one has gotten hurt yet..” Mudd said.
