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.

Luka, XO

“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.”

R’han

Barclay gestured excitedly, “We’ve got a comm channel opening from my ship…”

Junior Gamemaster Conspiracy Theorist

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.”

Fl. Captain Koraia, CO

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’”

R’han

Luka was quiet. She trusted Orvos, although she didn’t know his source.

Luka, XO

=/\=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.”

Fl. Captain Koraia, CO

“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.

R’han

“Let us hope that our men inside are able to lower the shields and disable that trap…”

Luka

R’han tilted his head. “Help me Obi Wan, you’re our only hope.”

R’han

Barclay looked at his wrist device and his eyes widened slightly, “Obi Wan has activated instant kill mode, I hope he knows what he’s targeting, phased torpedos can cause a lot of secondary damage if put in the wrong places”.

Junior Gamemaster Conspiracy Theorist

“We can watch and see…” It was safe out here.

R’han

“Obi Wan?” Luka asked, tilting her head and looking at R’han. Sometimes the Caitian made sense to her, but sometimes he was absolutely incomprehensible.

Luka, XO

Barclay’s eyes widened further. “Okaaaay… I don’t want to alarm everyone but there are a lot of life forms up and moving down there…”

At the same time, the ship’s sensors reported multiple transporter signatures targeting the ship and failing to do so.

Junior Gamemaster Conspiracy Theorist

“What is the status of the shields?” Luka demanded.

Luka

“Our shields are up, but if they are locking transporter beams on us, theirs must be down somewhere.” R’han started scanning. He wasn’t a science officer by trades, but shields being down is something he was very good at determining.

R’han

OOC Just to tie in the timeline and because I didn’t make it clear above, the shields are up but they’re acting as transporter inhibitors to stop the matter phasing that’s been happening shipwide. You’re open to energy attack but not to the dastardly transporters from below that we’re going to steal your people and send them to lock down on the planet below. I love it when a plan comes together.
Because Linds is still down sick I’d consider it a favour if you’d send people down below to help get Orvos and Isabelle out :-) plus you have an Orb to recover… and Barclay wants his ship back!

Junior Gamemaster Conspiracy Theorist
OOC: So to do anything we have to make them drop their shield… luke

OOC: I believe I can help? ;)

IC: While Aurora did her work, Orvos opened a channel to the Athena. =/\=Athena, the shields are about to come offline. We need landing parties ASAP! Do NOT use transporters. Whatever modifications you made to the shields have helped protect Athena from the compound’s own transporters. There will be 3 points of entry being my current location, and bays at the east and south ends of the compound. Be prepared for a fire fight. A Mr. Pierce Hamilton has awoken what I believe to be soldiers of some sort. Be aware, some of our counterparts are here. I’m leaving the channel open for any communications and questions that need answering.=/\=

-Lt. Orvos Legen, CE

Sensors showed four detonations on the surface and then the shields came down at the entry points below that Orvos had indicated. The sensors also showed a secondary effect… a seismic shift far below the base as a tectonic plate started to move…

Junior Gamemaster Conspiracy Theorist

OOC: Given that we’re a bit scattered with people, I’m going to have James join the away team, and I’ll play an NE as well to cover things.
IC:
Ghubari turned to Luka. “I need you down there now. Grab a team and go,” she said urgently. She wanted to go down herself, and given her background it might even make sense, but there was enough going on up here that she knew this was where she needed to be.

Fl. Captain Koraia, CO

Luka nodded tersely, then headed for the turbolift. As she traveled, she decided who to call. =^=Commander Luka to Ensign Va ser la and NE Vasquez, meet me in the aft shuttlebay. I need you there two minutes ago.=^=

Luka, XO

“They are going to be out numbered down there.”

R’han

Barclay piped up, “I can handle the bridge if you want to go Obi Wan”, then he looked up from scanning the ship’s records, “You could also take your bartender, I’ve found that bartenders are surprisingly helpful in a fight”. Barclay smiled and steepled his fingers, ‘I’d come with, but alas I’m all brains and little brawn,” he looked at R’han, “best to leave me here on the bridge methinks”.

Junior Gamemaster Conspiracy Theorist
OOC Shameless plug for Marishka there :-) Not very subtle, I’m sleep deprived haha.

“I wouldn’t leave you unsupervised on the ship, you might not know which buttons to push.” Which was a polite rewrite of the actual concern which was he didn’t trust anyone, particularly someone from a mirror universe with his ship.
