After the interruption, Barclay continued speaking. “Would now be a good time to tell you that I have a way to track that ship?” he said with an embarrassed half-smile.

=^=Twenty minutes ago would have been a good time; now is a useful time. Although you don’t look a gift Denoblian Steed in the mouth. =^= Barkley found that his gravity had returned. =^= Got to station J10, behind you. I’ll access your information from there.=^= He was not about to give Barkley direct access to anything important.

R’han

=/\= No can do my friend =/\= was the quick reply, =/\= I’m actually down on the planet and our transporters are on the fritz, plus the means I have is a self-contained unit that operates from a piece of my equipment. More than happy to come up there to you with it but first I’ll have to get my hands on some transport, you see my dilemma =/\= He smiled and tapped his fingers on his forearm in a motion that fairly screamed that time was a-wasting.

OOCSorry I didn’t make it clear where he was but it’s kind of important to the thread of how the ship ended up in the shuttle bay :-)

R’han made a face. =^=Captain, I have a mirror Barkley who claims he has the wherewithal to assist in our apprehension of the mirror Baxter.=^= He paused to get his mirrors in alignment. =^=But he needs to come on board first.=^= there was a suspicious tone in R’han’s voice. His normal level of suspicion… which was good, but it was tinged with a tone of annoyance which was bad, but only bad in such it meant that Barkly had a good chance of getting phasered for any aggravation his caused.

R’han

=/\=Really? Is that so. Well, given that we need people to help us navigate things here, I’m not entirely opposed, but I’m armed and have backup. So, I’ll allow it, but I’ll meet this person myself, provided our transporters or working. That or a shuttle. Just tell me where and give us 5 mins.=/\=

OOC: Cross-posted from Security thread. And someone please snip for me? I can’t right now.

Fl. Captain Koraia, CO

OOC Snipped. Also to fill you in, transporters are now down here, on the planet and on Eddington’s cloaked ship. Shuttles are functional… at least the ones that weren’t in the cargo bay explosion… gosh, anybody would think that that was all planned… Ian :-)

Barclay’s trip to the Athena was made all the more expedient by the use of a piloted shuttle that was being employed to oversee damage repairs to the main shuttle bay. Escorted to the bridge by a security detail the man walked confidently onto the bridge.

He nodded briefly to R’han. “I appreciate your allowing me to come,” he said in a perfunctory fashion, “I have the device with me and can link it to your navigation systems in a few minutes if you’d allow it”. He pulled up the sleeve of his greyish jumpsuit and showed a band that was flashing a dull orange colour.

OOC Pardon me Luke for jumping over you a bit here to get things moving. Linds at this point you’ve got the team down the hole, the one you need to choose going with Kaylee on the diplomatic mission to Risa and then the decision as to whether the Athena follows the assassins or stays here while a shuttle goes after them. Your call there. Science and Medicine are on the current crisis and will go to defcon two very shortly. I did kind of promise a place to Marishka on the Rura Penthe side of things :-)

“Your comments and implication of value made your invitation unavoidable. Let’s hope your value wasn’t overstated.” He said in a clipped tone. The comments had many subtexts, none of which was actually ‘inviting.’

R’han

“Er, I see” Barclay’s brow was a little furrowed as he processed all the entendre. “Well, I am rather motivated to putting myself out of the embarrassing situation of losing a valuable prototype ship, not good for one’s career prospects that sort of thing. I’m going to take your statement as a yes, please proceed”. He hesitated a little and then unclipped the bracelet and put it on the tactical console which began to flash a message. “It’s requesting your authorisation to connect to your navigational sensors”. Barclay wrung his hands a little, “I thought it might be polite rather than just hacking in”. He smiled a little but then wrung his hands again uncertainly.

“Yes, politer.. and safer.” R’han looked at the device for a moment and then at the authorization request. It seemed in order, but once you connected a device to a computer it frequently worked faster than you could monitor. R’han established a firewall from this station to the navigation system allowing no further out flow of programming.

“You may proceed.” He entered his codes surptitiously.

R’han

Barclay was looking at R’han with slightly out of focus eyes, then he raised his two hands up and framed R’han’s face with his fingers in box fashion. “The resemblance is uncanny…” he said then caught himself and suddenly became all businesslike.

The bracelet was placed on the console for a second and then suddenly two little metal tubules shot out of it in very Borg-like fashion and created a connection with the console. There was a splutter of lights on the console and then the readings showed a clear signal from a ship.

Barclay looked at it with satisfaction steepling his hands and looking at R’han over the top of them, “Damned tricky to catch a ship with wormhole drive but child’s play when you have a quantum transceiver planted on board”.
