Once the majority of the crew had landed and were on their shore leave, Jenn settled in the big chair, supervising the skeleton crew that had been left behind. Just enough crewmembers to deal with any unexpected circumstances. They’d get their turns on the planet’s surface later - it was a rotating crew. “Thanks for volunteering to stay up here,” she commented to one of the bridge crew, the NE at helm.

“I’m just as new to the Athena as you are, Cap’n,” the young officer replied with a smile. They were Trill. “Figure I don’t need the RNR the rest of her crew does.”

“We’re of the same mind,” Jennifer said with a small nod. “Sitting in orbit while everyone else is down on the planet is vacation enough for me. It’s nice and calm on a skeleton crew.”

“As long as nothin goes wrong!”

“Don’t jinx it,” Jenn replied with a smirk.

…and at precisely that instant the sensors picked up a strange energy signature in the main shuttle bay.

Karina had been at the science station going over various anomaly reports when the signature set off the alarm on her panel. She figured others had seen it as well, but spoke up. “Captain, there is an off energy reading coming from the main shuttle bay.” She ran a quick scan to see if it was from work being done on a shuttle or some other reason the crew would have set off such an alert. “Checking now to see if it’s from maintenance or some other plausible explaination.”

The doctor had stayed behind when the others had fled the ship. Part of it was she had been gone from the Athena long enough. And the other reason was a deep irrational fear, she hadn’t told anyone else, that if she left, the ship would disappear once more. She knew it wasn’t going to happen, but she hadn’t slept well the night before in the thought of it. So she had swapped with the NE on the roster and let the woman go to the surface with the others.
