IC: The holodeck doors opened as soon as Dawson had disappeared. And there, the man slowly stepping in with absolute precision, was Orvos. A look of anger was across his features.

“What are you two doing in this program?” He asked, articulating every word with crystal clarity.

-Lt. Orvos Legen, CE

Stark knew better than to try and explain when Orvos had that look in his eye. “We were about to ask you the same question!”

Stark Nightstalker CIO

Marishka wouldn’t speak to Orvos at this moment, her words first had to make sense to herself but her fire and ice gaze demanded answers. Someone was not getting out of that room without giving them to her.

  • Marishka

<bump>

Orvos stepped forward and opened his palm. Hidden within was a powdery substance. “This is what is left of the chip that this program was on. Shredded to tiny bits on the floor outside the holodeck. And neither of you saw anyone?” His questions were no longer accusatory, but to say he wasn’t mad would have been a lie.

The only chip the El Aurian program was on was now in a state impossible to repair. The program was now in the Athena computer, and would remain so until he found an appropriate replacement for the advanced chip.

-Lt. Orvos Legen, CE

Marishka watched Orvos intently. She had never seen him quite like this before. She was still angry and frustrated with the whole situation but, perhaps he was too.

“Define anyone.” she said.

  • Marishka

Stark’s mind was reeling with questions, “Anyone would be someone better than my ears and Orvos security, anyone would be someone extremely dangerous”.

Stark Nightstalker CIO

“But they likely don’t appear to be dangerous,” Orvos commented. “Someone aboard this ship either knows where I keep secrets, or is smart enough to discover them on their own. And now, this program is embedded into the Athena computer.”

“You two saw nobody either outside or inside this holodeck?” he continued questioning.

-Lt. Orvos Legen, CE

Marishka could see that Orvos wasn’t playing games this time but wondered how much she really wanted to tell him.

“Well, we started off just dancing actually, after taking out a sweet little group of Ninja types. What kind of danger could this program be for someone else? I really want to help you but I’m just trying to figure this out.” she concluded.

  • Marishka

“It’s possible whoever it was, was in disguise so we thought them part of the program…” Stark spun and looked intently at the room before them, “in fact, they might still be in here…”

Stark Nightstalker CIO

“Computer, end program.” In compliance, the program halted and disappeared, leaving them in the cavernous chamber of the gridded holodeck. Nobody other than the three of them appeared to be in there. “I’m not sensing any other presence besides us.”

“Unless you saw anyone in here, I suspect our culprit is long gone.”

Just then a communique came in for Orvos. =/\=Ensign Inesa to Chief Legen. I just detected a strange anomaly in the ship’s computer. Should I let you see it or notify security?=/\=

Orvos looked to the pair, as though perhaps that might answer their questions. =/\=I’m on my way.=/\=

Looking to the pair he said, “You might as well join me.”

-Lt. Orvos Legen, CE

Marishka was glad for the interruption. It would give her more time to ponder the green eyed man.

Nodding, she followed Orvos.

  • Marishka

Stark followed eyes everywhere. Secrets were his stock and trade but it made him decidedly nervous when someone was keeping them from him.

Stark Nightstalker CIO

Orvos led the way to engineering in a sort of eerie silence. Few had ever seen him in such a mindset.

As they entered, a young blonde ensign strode up to Orvos. “Ensign, let’s take this into my office,” he stated as he led the way.

The doors swished open and he took his seat behind his desk.

“Sir,” stated Ensign Inesa as she stepped up to large monitor in the office. She pressed several buttons, and a stream of data appeared. “It’s an encrypted data stream that was piggybacked on a communication link to the ship. I haven’t been able to unencrypt it, however it did end up having access to communications, basic computer functions, holodeck controls, shield emitter arrays, weapons info.”

Stark balked a bit at that.

“It accessed those systems? How? Is it possible this is some sort of virus?”

“Possible yes, but not verified yet. I can’t seem to figure out the encryption. It’s not even in a language I understand.”

Orvos spoke again. “Very well, ensign. Leave the encryption available here. Mr. Nightstalker may be able to help with this.”

The ensign nodded and briefly looking at both Stark and Marishka before leaving. As she turned on her heels, Orvos being the quick thinker he was, turned to Marishka. “Before I get to work, here’s what I would like from the lounge delivered here, instead of my quarters.” The doors then swished shut, as Orvos silently keyed a few commands into the computer.

“We’re shut in, but you’ll need to likely leave soon. Thoughts?”

He paused, hoping to glean what they each thought before moving to the encrypted algorithm.

-Lt. Orvos Legen, CE

“Inside job,” Stark said taking a closer look at the code, “Even with the ability to send a code in from the outside, you’d need to arrange access somehow to be able to implant it this successfully.”
