Main sim, shuttlebay

Posted Jan. 17, 2020, 4:36 p.m. by Lieutenant Laraan (Counsellor) (Julia Hager)

Luka arrive in the shuttlebay and stood patiently waiting for the ensigns she had summoned to join her there.

Luka, xo

“Imagine meeting you here Commander.” R’han commented as he showed up with a phaser rifle in his hand resting against the same side shoulder. There was a hanging mouth piece likely connected to a source of oxygen and he wore heavy winter gear. “The Captain suggested that I support your team.”


Luka looked at his gear and nodded slightly. She wasn’t dressed much different than normal, although she had put on one extra layer. Her pale fur was made for this kind of weather, and although she had adapted to warmer environments, she had been born in a place that wasn’t too much warmer than it was outside. At least during the winter. “Good to see you, Commander,” she replied. “Not looking forward to the cold trek?”

Luka, XO

“The guards on Rura Pente has been known to kill prisoners’ by exposing them to the elements… death occurred in minutes.” looked at his gear for a moment and then back to the executive officer. “One thing is certain, I have no intention in dying in a few minutes of being exposed to anything.”


Luka nodded slightly. “How far is the walk from our drop-off point to the entrance?” She asked R’han.


“That’s up to you, we could fly right up to the entrance, and make it a few dozen yards… but that would make us fully visible and exposed. ” He looked at the sensor readings, “Given the situation speed seems to be more important than subterfuge.”


OOC For simplicities sake you could fly into the same place that the Cyrano is docked, your friendly neighbourhood GM would appreciate not having to open another thread :-)

“I would agree with that. Speed is more important than stealth, I believe. Where is the rest of the away team…?” she muttered, annoyed.

Luka, XO

Over in the corner by a small shuttlecraft, there was the flickering of coruscating lights as something materialised on the far side of the shuttlecraft, moments later the shuttle started to move off towards space…

OOC: I can presume that we have a security detachment?

OOC Yes, I also feel led to point out that the shuttle that took off in my previous post was not yours… sorry for not making that clear :-(

R’han was a fair pilot, not as good as a typical helms man… and certainly not as good as those instinctual fliers who seemed to have been born with a joystick between their legs. “I’ll bring us down fast, do nape of the earth until the last possible moment.”

Luka was startled for a second, then did the most reasonable thing she could think of. The emergency lock down. She dashed towards it and slammed her hand against the release, making the Shuttlebay doors rapidly close.

Luka, XO

The shuttle smoothly turned sideways slipping out just before the doors shut, it started to accelerate into space.

=/\=Shuttle bay, Luka, stop that shuttle =/\= The captain’s voice was calm but unfortunately, also too late.

A split second later there was the clatter of claws and S’Raal burst into the Shuttlebay straining and panting, leaving bloody footprints, a testimony to his efforts. He howled in abject pain and then turned on the assembled group his voice dropping an octave.

“Open the doors! My daughter is on that shuttle!”

OOC: Put that in when it fits you time-wise.
IC: Laraan burst into the shuttle bay, a high-pitched sound streaming from her wide-open mouth that was distinctly enraged and inadvertently hurt somewhat in the eardrums of everyone present.

No shuttle, and one look at S’Raal told her everything she needed to know. “There’s more than one shuttle S’Raal, get it together and let’s take one.” she screamed and raced to the next closest one available, happy for the fact that they were on a mythology class ship that held 10 Amardillio class shuttles.

In her mind a war song was playing - not again, not again, not again - first Stark, multiple times, now the child that she had vowed to protect, snatched away in front of their eyes as if there was nothing easier in the world. She was done playing puppet and this child was her responsibility in more than one way, especially after what Barcley had just told her about Heleen in this universe. If they somehow knew the child had Heleen DNA, it would become a puppet in their political games, raised to be a weapon maybe. She would do everything in her power to prevent this before it even started. Stark would do nothing less. In that moment she was more than a Starfleet Officer. She was -apparently with her mirror self - the only guardian of the Heleen race.

R’han looked about, senses mostly locked on his science and navigation reports. He didn’t understand or know of the fervor that was going on around him.


Luka let out more than a couple expletives, in a language none of the others could understand, her usual calm and collected self lost slightly with the kidnapping of a child. She quickly reversed the emergency lock-down, while also sending a comm to the bridge, =^=we have a tractor beam! Use it and get a lock on that shuttle!=^=
Then to whoever was in charge of the transporters. =^=I thought the transporters were locked down? What idiot let them get activated?=^=

Luka, a very flustered XO

Barclay had tracked the transport and contacted the shuttle bay. =/\= Be aware, the perpetrator is utilising a cross-dimensional transporter device. Portable and it can be used to reach your universe as well as ours. Your transport inhibiting shields meant they had to jump within the ship but now they’re outside… =/\=

Ghubari’s voice followed Barclay’s in quick succession =/\= Tractor didn’t work Luka, get after it =/\=

S’Raal jumped into the nearest shuttle and started powering it up. He didn’t care about permission or who was coming with. Seconds later he was joined by Michail who had just arrived on the scene having found it impossible to keep up with the blood-crazed Caitian.

Laraan was at the heels of Michail, not at the least surprised that he showed up as well. He always did when somebody suddenly vanished despite all odds. It was sad in so many ways that this was business as usual to her now. She just shot him a knowing look.

She strapped in next to S’Raal, she needed to be as close to the front window as possible. Even as they launched she grabbed the arm rests of her seat and focused all her attention on the energy signatures ahead of them in the shuttle, drawing in energy as they went. It was dangerous, she had focused all this time since the incident with the time-displaced Laraan on keeping the additional energy at bay inside of her, but this situation was beyond a normal mission.

OOC Just an aside here, this is no sidesim, I planned for this to be part of the main sim from the start. Those on the station below are aware that this Hamilton spoke to his time travelling counterpart. That said… get in the shuttle… or another one :-)

OOC I’ll cross-post Luka’s communication to the bridge.

OOC: I have to admit, I’ve lost track of what’s going on.
