=/\= Captain Koraia, this is Commander Eddington, we tracked your entrance into this sector from a wormhole like anomaly. We are aware of the Federation and it’s existence in a universe parallel to our own. Your appearance at this time seems to have been expected by some but you’ll have to pardon our suspicion. Make no aggressive moves, we have a cloaked ship in orbit. As a gesture of faith I’m prepared to meet with you on your ship to discuss your rather unique situation =/\=

Junior Gamemaster Conspiracy Theorist

Konral stood silent at his station and listened, he maintained a few on security readings wanting to make sure everything stayed alert.

Vander, COS

Koraia took in the response with curiosity and slight surprise. She didn’t doubt they knew about the Federation, given previous incursions between the two Universes, but this was more complicated. They were expected? Sisko’s words floated through her mind and still she felt a chill run through her. =/\=Understood. We’ll give you coordinates for our transporter room in ten minutes. Yourself and no more than two others accompanying you.=/\= After all, fair was fair.

Leaning over to Luka, Ghubari said softly. “Call Commander Baxter to Transporter Room One. I’ll brief her before our guests arrive.”

Fl. Captain Koraia, CO

Laraan also made to leave the bridge with Ghubari, there was no real necessity for her to remain on the bridge as the counselor.

  • Laraan, CNS

Luka nodded quietly, leaning over to the comm and connecting with Cmdr. Baxter. =^=Bridge to Baxter, you are required in Transporter Room One. You will be briefed upon arrival.=^= she then leaned back slightly in her chair. “Hold position until further notice,” she spoke to the pilot, then nodded to Ghubari. “We will hold down the fort, as they say.”

Luka, XO

Ghubari nodded. “Lieutenant Vander, have one person from Security join me. Stark, you’re also with me.” Three people. She would prefer two, but Stark could easily slip away so their guests didn’t feel out numbered. Then again, they were coming to her ship and were automatically outnumbered, so she doubted they would put up too much of a fuss. Maybe.

Eddington’s voice came over the conn =/\=Confirmed Captain =/\=

Izzy looked up at Konral. “Permission to attend the Transporter Room and perform security escort duties sir?”

Delaney, Sec

“Granted Lieutenant.” Konral said, taking a small breath he felt a slight since of unease but let it push down. Ghubari might sense it but he focused at the things going on in front of him.

“With our shields down, they can transport virtually anything.” R’han looked over the the captain, “we should keep all transporter rooms manned, and have internal sensors active. It they attempt an unauthorized transport we should lock onto the beam before it solidifies and beam into out to space.”

“Agreed,” do it.”

“Also when they de-cloak to transport we should be able to get a scan of the vessel.” R’han shook his head. “They know more about us than we do of them, and we are in their territory, with no hope of reinforcement. We must be cautious.”

R’han

“I hear you, Commander,” Koraia said. “Take any precautions you deem fit. But no aggressive action. If they can cloak, we don’t know how outnumbered we really are out here. Let’s not poke the bear.”

Dan nodded toward R’han as he activated internal sensors. “Internal sensors active. We will be notified of any transports.”

Lt j.g.Dan Jones (Scientist)

Vander, CoS

Satisfied her crew had the bridge well under hand, she glanced one last time at Luka. “Wish me luck,” she said softly, feeling a tiny bit of apprehension that she, as usual, visually concealed rather well.

The captain left the bridge hoping that this strange set of events would end better than the last.

Fl. Captain Koraia, CO

Shortly after the Captain had vacated the bridge routine scans of the planet below began to show an increase in seismic activity.

Junior Gamemaster Conspiracy Theorist

Orvos noted the anomaly in the sensor scans. Seismic activity? Not odd for a planet, but why now?

He got up and strolled over to Dan’s spot at his science station. “What info do we have on the planet? Do we know what type of planet, perhaps even its equivalent to our own universe maybe? Are there any abnormalities?” he inquired of the young officer.

Orvos could have likely gone to one of the other stations to look it up himself, but preferred the man instead. He knew what he was doing and likely had some information already available. The Chief Engineer’s console handled all things inside the ship.

-Lt. Orvos Legen, CE

Looking over at Orvos, Dan said “We know very little of the planet in this dimension. I shall run a sensor sweep to check seismic activity”.
Dan entered the command into the science station for a scan of the planet.

Lt j.g.Dan Jones (Scientist)

R’han glanced at the scurry of motion at the science station. Normally scans like this were so routine that science wouldn’t need to clear the operation with anyone, but this was not a routine situation. He looked over at Luka for a moment to see how she would respond. Offering some information, “I do not need the lateral arrays at this time.”

R’han

The scan of the planet showed upturns in seismic activity and also cold front rainy weather systems. Both were normally kept in check by gravimetric adjustment from the planets complicated weather and seismic systems which needed careful and constant fine tuning. It was obvious from the scans that the equipment was not doing its usual job properly. More concerning however was that the surface scan showed a geological instability near the resort below where a sink hole had opened up in the ground and penetrated deep into the planet’s crust.

OOC: Not trying to jump the gun on what Dan is going to relay. Just wanted to get my bit posted due to time constraints at the moment. Feel free to insert where necessary! :)

IC: Orvos was already looking over the results with Dan the man Jones. “Forward those readouts on the weather and seismic systems to my console,” he said aloud as he hurried back to this Chief Engineer’s spot.

Orvos looked over the data. An entire system that needed to be constantly checked on. Seems whoever was in charge of it either lost control or was asleep at the wheel. Either way, if things kept going the way there, Orvos had a feeling bad things would come to the planet if they weren’t fixed. “Commander Luka, it appears that the reasoning for these seismic activities is due to some form of negligence on maintaining some elaborate weather systems on the planet. If I were to guess, I would suspect that it had to be recent. Leaving systems like this go for too long would probably result in much more than what we are seeing now. And while my next thought may be quite the bit risky, if something is not done soon, I suspect it will simply escalate. If they will have us, it would may be good to get a team down there to stabilize things?”

And there it was. Orvos was more than itching to get down there. Curiosity and the desire to protect others nearly always got the best of him. But it sounded reasonable. Help these people and maybe, just maybe, the Athena would have an ally here for the time being instead of wondering what was going on and who to trust. But he trusted Commander Luka. If he had to stay put for now, then so be it, but if he could get down there....

-Lt. Orvos Legen, CE

Konral began reading off the data to himself. He was already thinking of what security check points to set up. Unlike most he didn’t have as much of a curious bone, but pragmatic at times.

Vander, CoS

Luka was quiet, thinking. Her eyes closed, and there was a small frown on her face. “It might be helpful, but I am not certain that would be wise before Ghubari is finished her discussion. We do not want to do anything too unexpected.

Luka, XO

The data flowing in from the planet continued to show slow but steady increases in instability. Orvos’ wrist shield device started to stutter, like it was receiving a faint activation signal from somewhere even though he himself wasn’t using it.

Junior Gamemaster Conspiracy Theorist

A private message to R’han appeared on the bridge at his station. It read “Check the camera footage from Transporter One”.

Stark Nightstalker CIO

Orvos’s attention was caught up with the stutter of his wrist device. He quickly grabbed the engineering kit next to his console that he kept there for emergencies. He quickly opened it, pulled out a tool that many would likely have no idea about (unless they had extensive knowledge in engineering skills), and attempted to recalibrate the signal receptor on his device. He could not afford for his device to go off here on the bridge at a time like this.

Once his work was complete, he looked over the data flowing in from the sensor readings of the planet’s weather systems. “Readings are indicating that while its a semi-slow progression, it most certainly is not getting better. I doubt it will any time soon. Perhaps if we could quietly get a message to the captain, or even someone in the room with her, that these people might need some help with their weather systems? Perhaps they would welcome the assistance?”

-Lt. Orvos Legen, CE

R’han pursed his lips, a secret communication. He liked secrets, but rarely liked what caused the need for them. He pulled up the transporter camera on a split screen on his station. He exhaled loudly. “What the hell am I wearing.” He presumed that he was a Machiavellian mastermind in charge of half the known galaxy… not a Hawaiian shirt wearing… hippy. This had better be a secret plan to make people underestimate him…

R’han

Dan contemplated the data as it came in. Dan wondered why the planet needed this level of maintenance. Planets reach a sort of equilibrium in weather and tectonics over time. Rather than type this in manually Dan gave the computer verbal instructions. “Computer. Take into account the weather, seismic activity, and pollutants present on the planet. What catastrophic event, natural or man-made, could account for these events? Rank answers by highest probability to lowest.”
