=^= Yes Captain?=^= Adam responded.

Commander Adam Chryst, Executive Officer, USS Athena NCC 17819-D

Ghubari could feel the relief flood through her. =/\=Good. You’re still there. We have dealt with the timeship, but its demise had the unintended consequence of shifting us forward in time. And somehow there is an entire civilization down there with you. But we’re safe up here and while it’s complicated, I think we should reconvene the party up here. What’s your status?=/\=

Fl. Captain Koraia, CO

=^= “Captain the crew all appear healthy, but the Guardian has been heavily damaged,=^= Liam revealed, waiting to allow the CO to absorb the information before he continued. Time was of the essence and they had none to spare.

=^= “We might’ve figured out a way to fix the Guardian of Forever using a piece of Rxzyth, his protector. However, we need to use Athena’s transporters in order to splice the piece of Rxzyth and the Guardian together,”=^= Liam took a breath then continued.

=^= “Officer Jones will be monitoring the Guardian and S’Raal will likely need to ensure the patches are placed correctly. If the theory works, the Guardian will be fixed.”=^=

–CSO, Liam J. Madison, Sci

Koraia processed this for a moment and then nodded. =/\=Understood. Keep us posted.=/\=

Science NE Jacobs ran a sensor sweep of the area trying to determine just how far forward in time the ship was.

Noticing the civilization that was now on the planet Jacobs ran a scan to determine their level of technical sophistication. Jacobs did not want to contaminate a pre-warp culture.

Ensign Dan Jones (Scientist) as NE Jacobs

Meanwhile, Orvos contacted his fearless leader through the special frequency on their combadges. =/\=Any new orders, captain?=/\= he inquired.

-Lt. Orvos Legen, CE

Well was’t that the question of the day? =/\=Stand by for the moment, Lieutenant. We’re trying to sort out what’s happening on the surface right now. But let’s be prepared to pull people off the planet if we need to.=/\= Current Ghubari said.

Kaylee remained where she was standing, silent and observing. For now it appeared that she was not needed, but she knew that the most important thing now was gathering information and assessing their situation.

-Kaylee Baxter

Jacob’s scan showed that they had followed a Feynman curve in the timeline that had brought the crew back in line with their other selves. Below was a planet civilisation that was to a prewarp civilisation what a personal PaDD was to stone tablets. There was technology down there that the sensors couldn’t make head or tail of. Most alarming was the fact that the aliens below were all octopoid in nature and very familiar…

They were also being hailed, on a Federation frequency…

When the news of the hail was announced, Past Ghubari frowned slightly, her brows knitting against her forehead ridge. “Well then, open a channel. Let’s find out who’s calling,” she ordered.

Fl. Captains Koraia, COs

The channel was duly opened and the face that filled the screen was older, greyer but easily recognisable. It was Michail.

=/\= Greetings Captain, welcome to the end of the Mobius Loop, no doubt you have questions? =/\=

Gamemaster Conspiracy Theorist (GMT)

“Inevitably,” Past Ghubari said dryly. “But why ask too many questions when you can just give me the answers?” she tossed back. “Because really, at this point, I think we’re just looking to draw the curtain on this show, if that isn’t too presumptuous a request.”

Fl. Captain Koraia, CO (of the ‘past’ variety)

=/\= Indeed =/\= Michail replied with a small smile that looked like it hadn’t found a place on his graying visage for quite some time. =/\= Once your crew on the planet has finished repairing the Guardian it will complete the loop and restore this planet below to what it has, will and always should have been… the planet of the Aegis. You may not have been aware of it Captain but Counterstrike are also Aegis, albeit a breakaway group of separatists bent on bending the timeline the way they see fit. They broke into the Eridean vault and stole a very sophisticated time drive which they then used to try and destroy their own people preserving only themselves in an interdimensional time loop that you forced them out of early by your meddling =/\=

His smile broke forth into a grin and he began to look more like the Michail they knew. =/\=Nice job meddling by the way =/\=

The Ghubaris exchanged a glance and Current Ghubari gave a bow of her head. “Well, when we’re given a task…” she joked.

Continuing his monologue happily “Counterstrike realised their own demise too late. The planning was Rxzyth’s all along, only a Horta has the long sightedness and patience to plan something over millennia. The stolen time drive was the point at which one nexus turned but unbeknownst to them there was a secondary one with Rxzyth and her brother who sacrificed himself eons ago into the service of the Aegis by becoming a living time focus. You used their own tech against them and put the time drive out of existence unravelling what they had done, which they then thought they could redo, but… =/\= He was forced to take a breath at this point.

=/\= The secondary nexus around the Guardian has nearly completed it’s closing and thanks to your people on the surface there was no way for them to get back to their own time nexus and start the ball rolling again. Magnificently played all round really and Counter Strike in their arrogance thought there was no way a ship like yours could make it happen =/\= He chuckled.

=/\=Combining Rxzyth with her brother combines their memories as well ensuring that the Guardian cannot be used again in the future to tamper with these results. Now once things have played out below it’s just a matter of receiving your accolades from the newly restored Aegis High Council, reintegrating your past and future selves so your memories are intact and can’t be meddled with and then we can set you up on your own Feynman curve back to where this all began and tell a very surprised Dulmur and Lucsly that your mission was a huge success=/\= Michail sighed =/\= I do love it when a plan comes together =/\=.

OOC Well played everyone, just a bit of tidying up to do and we can all have tea and crumpets and a good lie down for a bit :-)

“I’m sure they’ll have plenty of questions that we of course can’t really answer,” Past Ghubari said with a shrewd grin.

Past and present Laraan still stood there hand in hand. It was somehow a comforting feeling in all this crazyness. Neither of them reacted to R’han’s snide remark, they were used to it now. So how were they going to re-integrate themselves, and did they even want to? Both had felt the rush of their powerful combined channel, there was so much possibility there. They both acted oddly synchronous… maybe becasue they were both in sync with their mutual energy. They both looked at the Starks and then at each other. Neither needed to say a word, for some reason they both knew what they wanted to do. Slowly, they made to leave the bridge.

  • Laraans

OOC: Literally no idea what to do with Kaylee in this situation. Every post is her just standing around. Feel useless.
-James
OOC not at all :-)

OOC: I have a plan, but Kaylee still has the phaser and was supposed to be keeping an eye on Pierce, just in case he wasn’t as unconscious (dead?) as it appears. ~L

Kaylee looked from one Ghubari to the other. “What would you like me to do, Captains?” She wondered what her counterpart might be up to at the moment. Probably still down in the cargo bay. She wondered if the cat/woman had shown up with the changes in the timeline.

-Kaylee Baxter

As if on cue Meridyth appeared from the turbo lift. Nodding to Michail’s greying visage on the screen she looked at all those assembled. “You’ve done us a great service and now have been offered a great reward. In these situations normally we handle this in a different way and only one set of memories is retained”. She looked seriously at Laraan and then at the others. “Reintegrating bodies is a tried and true technology which has no lasting repercussion, however reintegrating memory engrams is another animal entirely. Some will find it extremely disorientating and will need to talk it through. then there are those who’s other selves died on the planet below and must somehow come to reconcile this memory. Survivors guilt, time psychosis, the list of complications go on so you’ll be forgiven if you see this as a curse rather than a gift”.

“Lovely,” Current Ghubari muttered, eying her counterpart. She lifted the device in her hand that would allow people to reintegrate and knew that a decision would have to be made.

Continuing Meridyth became even more intent, “The Aegis owe you a great debt but they too have a Temporal Prime Directive which is being walked all over here. Very shortly the Time Nexus will close and many of your crew will be standing in a city where they will be viewed by members of the Aegis public as an anomaly because in their eyes as the general public you will be the time anomaly not the saviours of their early days. We have an operative down their waiting to assist you in recovering your people without diplomatic incident. I’d suggest a team go down to facilitate this the instant the bubble recedes.”

Gamemaster Conspiracy Theorist (GMT)

=^= “Madison to Transporter Room, I need you to beam down some silicon gel now.=^=

Past Ghubari gave the order for someone to send down the gel. After all, there were times to ask questions and this wasn’t really one of them.

Next came a set of instructions complete with scans of Rxzyth as to how and why the being needed to be “carved” up to save the day.

Current Ghubari turned to her CDO. “Kaylee, I think you should go down. I’ll have R’han and Konral meet you at the Guardian. You’ll be in charge of meeting with the operative and making sure the rest of the crew makes it back up so we can all re-integrate,” she said, wiggling the device in her hands. Past Ghubari gave a nod of approval for the plan.

Tapping her commbadge, Current Ghubari knew it was time to make all this come together. =/\=Koraia to Madison, Grey, R’han and Vander. Commander Baxter is going to be beaming down to the Guardian site to meet with an Aegis operative to facilitate the removal of our people from the planet without causing a diplomatic incident. Get the crew ready to return to the ship and offer her any assistance needed. Once everyone is back, each person will need to re-integrate themselves. Lieutenant Grey, make sure to identify anyone who is not mobile so that you can have help from the rest of the teams down there. Stick together people and good luck. We’ll see you all soon. Koraia out.=/\=

Fl. Captain Koraia, CO

=^=What reintegration do you speak?=^=

R’han

=/\= Between yourself and your past counterpart still on the Athena from before we evacuated the ship. Both versions can’t exist. We have a device that will integrate one version into the other.=/\= There was a pause before she continued. =/\=A choice will have to be made,=/\= Koraia replied.

Fl. Captain Koraia, CO

Stark looked at Stark and sighed “There goes an endless array of possibilities that we could have accomplished together”. The second Stark grinned viciously and then looked at Laraan and Laraan and commented “Ummm, due to the uniforms… I’m not sure which one is my wife and which one is yours…”.
