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 :-)

OOC: Noted. ~Linds

“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.’


“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.


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”.

It was then that Koraia made it the bridge with Va’Ser-la in tow. Her pale amber eyes swept the bridge and took in the newcomer. Weapon held at her side, she was still very much prepared t use it if necessary. “Commander, report,” she said, addressing R’han, but not moving her gaze from Barclay.

=^= Madison to Captain. I traced the residual energy from the conference room to the shuttle bay. It was initiated from there, but it disappeared into a cloaking field and vanished. It wasn’t done by the Athena’s systems. =^=

=/\=Stand by, Lieutenant. I suspect we may have more answers very shortly,=/\= Ghubari responded.
