P’tah stood at the reception to EDOC Anchor Points main hotel. The polished wooden floors gleamed in the light of the overhead chandeliers. A large semi opaque spiral staircase at the back led to the deck area where an infinity pool overlooked the sea. The rest of the lobby was dotted with tour guides who had been assigned the task of telling prospective adventurers what awaited them at the various attractions on the planet such as the Darmus Tundra and the Trinity Plateau. One large booth held the “Wish Centre” for those who wanted to try their hands at creating a fantasy to remember for all time. Elevators at the back led to the bar, restaurant, workout facilities and the rooms and suites above.

P’tah had been told that crew would begin to alight as they were given permission to start their R&R and She had ordered that everyone was to be made deliriously happy…

OOC Feel free to turn up on this thread. If you have no map destination in mind one of the tourist guides will be happy to fill you in on what can be done on the planet, similarly if you have an idea of something you want to do, say so and I’ll start the threads off in the places that those things happen. Have at it!

Orvos was geared up for R&R, but was mentally on his own mission. He had spent too much time in the Nexus and was apprehensive about starting a fantasy that others would join him on. There was an inkling however, to get another good feel for the Aurora as he had so many years ago. No ship compared to her.

But there were flags raised in his mind about Fantasy Planet. How was it possible? And what lie in the outer reaches of the planet?

But there was still the Aurora. Oh, he couldn’t just trust anyone to see her. She was an El Aurian secret at best.

He shook his head out of his reverie as he took in his new surroundings.

-Lt. Commander Orvos Legen, CE

A tall man appeared next to him. He was dressed in a flowing robe in turquoise and his hands were contained inside the sleeves of the robe so they were out of view. His angular eyes were the same colour as his robes as was his hair albeit with black tips.

“Welcome to Fantasy Planet!” he said effusively, “My name is P’tah, I shall be your host for the duration of your stay, how may I serve you?”

Janna appeared next, wanting very much to have some actual relaxation but her guard was up as she suspected much of the crew’s would be. It wouldn’t be until they were actually safe and having fun that most would begin to relax. She approached behind Orvos but said nothing for the moment and just studied P’tah.

~Janna Kingston, CNS

P’tah was suddenly distracted by the arrival of the Admiral, Yami and Izanami. The three of them headed straight to the elevators at the back but Izanami gave P’tah a small, almost shy wave causing P’tah smile to widen significantly.

He turned his attention back to Orvos and caught sight of Janna motioning her forward. “Welcome to Fantasy Planet, I was just chatting with Mr Legen here about what I could do to make his stay more memorable and I extend the same curtsy to you Miss Kingston.

Just seconds later, Viyara was the next one to arrive at the hotel. While she was doing better than she had as recently as a few days ago, she was secretly relieved when she saw Janna. Walking over to the other woman till she was close enough so that she could whisper in her ear without anyone else over hearing her, she said softly, “Would it be okay if I stick with you for a bit?”

~Ensign Nazeen, Scientist

Janna gave a reassuring nod. And since Viyara knew about Janna’s issue, there was at least some protection against mishaps.

Tello entered the hotel alone. She wasn’t sure what she wanted to experience, but a little adventure would be good enough to get her mind off of the ship and her personal life. She wasn’t opposed to having others from the crew involved in the fantasy, but she would steer clear of a few of them. With a duffle bag over her shoulder, she walked in further. It was an impressive place and she felt a slight thrill in the pit of her stomach wondering what the next few days would bring.

Janna’s brows knit as she stood with Orvos and Viyara and she studied P’tah for a long moment. “How did you know my name? I never gave it,” she said simply.

~Janna Kingston, CNS

Orvos had indeed noticed that their host already knew their names on first meeting them. However, Janna spoke up just before him, so he kept a quiet grin on his face as he listened to the man’s response. Was he already fully aware of the crew to arrive? Did he have that good of an eidetic memory that he could put names to faces before meeting them in person? Or was there something special about this place that gave the P’tah special knowledge?

-Lt. Orvos Legen, CE

P’tah smiled and brought his hands out of his robes to gesture a slightly florid bow. “It is a part of the service Miss Kingston. We need to know as much as we are allowed to about Athena so as to better tend to your needs”.

So much for privacy, she thought. Then again, Janna had known that she wouldn’t entirely be able to go off-duty. Such was her job lately.

He nodded at the newcomers and then P’tah’s hands began to weave and the four gathered with him saw the vista of the hotel fall away into the distance finding themselves at the base of a cliff surrounded by verdant forest. “For instance I happen to know that some of you like to climb…” he pointed at the cliff above. His hands weaved again and the cliff faded out to be replaced again by the hotel surroundings. “This is Fantasy Planet after all” he said with another small bow”.

Janna pondered. “We were told all about the safety record but can you explain the actual safety measures in place to reduce risk in these… adventures people run? What is safe for others might actually be too risky for me, so while I have something that I would love to do, I need specifics so I can gauge my own risk tolerance while I’m here. Not that I would’t be perfectly happy on the beach the entire time,” she said with a smile. Either way, she intended to make the most of their time here.

~Janna Kingston, CNS

P’tah nodded, “A wise precaution Miss Kingston but I assure you that you need not fear harm or danger unless you wish to put yourself in harms way.” He paused and then continued, “Imagine, if you will, not having to be concerned about your medical issue for a period of time. Imagine anything and it can be yours for a time”.

Izzy was grinning from ear to ear. There was a hope in her heart that her vacation would be exactly what she needed. Rest and relaxation, and perhaps some hiking and camping. A nice wood cabin on a mountain somewhere would be fun. Wood fire, slightly chilly air, maybe some snow, and no technology were endearing thoughts. But Izzy was of two minds. The beach was also something of a draw. Hot sand, sun shining, wind and salty air, the ocean waves… all good things.

She came up behind Janna though her eyes were examining the hotel. “I think I would want to get settled first. Is there like a menu of activities to choose from? Or do we pick an area of the resort we want to theme our vacation around and let your staff fill in the possible activities to choose from?”

Delaney, CoS

Motioning to the booth in the foyer P’tah answered her question, “Both are possible Miss Delaney, my aides stand ready to tell you of the wonders that await in specific areas of the planet. Name your desire and I can point out which one of them can take you to the place your desires will be fulfilled”.

Taking in the whole group he continued. “The Admiral has made me aware that many of you have been through much so I understand why the questions around safety but I wish to assure you that we have medical facilities that rival your Starbases. Up to this point we have not needed them and we do not anticipate needing them in the near future simply because it is you who set the scene for each and every encounter you have here. You will not be put in danger unless you wish it”.

Tello stood just outside the group, but listened to the conversation. She wanted to know how one went about choosing, also. So far, she was alone, but it didn’t have to remain that way.

The slightest hint of a frown had appeared on Viyara’s face as she listened to P’tah. On the one hand what he said sounded great. And it also made her feel a little uneasy. In many ways she was doing better than she before her days on the holodeck with Janna. But she was still at the beginning of her journey to get better and still slipped into old, unhealthy coping skills now and then. Or thought about them anyway. So this whole “whatever you wish” thing made her feel anxious. Looking straight at P’tah she thus asked, “How exactly does that work? Do we say what we wish for and then we get it or it happens or whatever the case might be? Or do we merely have to think of something? If the latter is the case, will every random wish that crosses our mind be granted?”

~Ensign Nazeen, Scientist

“An astute question Miss Nazeen”, P’Tah put a finger to his chin, “To have every random wish granted would be dangerous in the extreme so in essence the Wish Centre interviews you on the broad and specific details of your wish and then they make it happen. I personally spent a period of time as an Egyptian Demigod, it was most satisfying”.
