Luka tilted her head slightly, trying to access some old information. “Rura Penthe. Klingon penal colony. Many arrive. Few escape. I have read of a few escapes within human history. The weaknesses exploited in those cases may be useful. Although perhaps not with the time sensitive nature of our mission,” she reflected.
“Most escape attempts lead to death. They don’t even bother to try to stop them in most cases. The planet is inhospitable to the extreme, death by most species who are not protected by significant cold weather gear, can occur in minutes.”
Barclay gestured excitedly, “We’ve got a comm channel opening from my ship…”

Ghubari quirked an eyebrow in surprise, but rose to her feet in a fluid, confident motion. “By all means, put them through,” she said. Having no clue what to expect, she could be prepared for anything . And keep looking for signs of Delaney.”

Once the channel was open, Orvos immediately spoke to the Athena. =/\=Legen to Athena, do not approach Rura Penthe! This is your chief engineer speaking! The shields are up and it’s a trap! I’ll need to bring the shields down before you can approach. I’m also working on getting Isabel Delaney safely out of here. I know where she is. Let me take down the shields. Please let me know you have received this message!=/\=
-Lt. Orvos Legen, CE
Ghubari was definitely surprised to hear his voice. What was Orvos doing there? Wasn’t he supposed to be on Risa? But it didn’t matter. For the moment she had to trust her people (if indeed this was their Orvos) and her instincts. Instincts at the moment were proving to be her saving grace.
R’han looked at the tactical sensors. The shields he could pick up, the other elements of the alleged trap wasn’t immediately known to him. “Their shields are indeed up” He could confirmed at least that part of the report. “I don’t detect anything else that might be elements of this ‘trap’”
Luka was quiet. She trusted Orvos, although she didn’t know his source.
=/\=Acknowledged, Chief. We’re backing off,=/\= Koraia replied.
“Helm, back us off and give us space. R’han. let’s not arm up yet, but be ready to do so at the first sign of provocation.” The captain turned to Luka. “I’d rather not have to fight in and out. We have no idea what the situation is back on Risa, so we need to get in and out as quickly as possible here.”

“If they detect that the shields are up, perhaps they can lower it as well. Then our mission is far more simple.” Not to mention he could just as easily beam in two or three photon torpedoes and toast the whole base.
