Kelly looked at the material that was beamed into the center of the room as Tenzig took scans. “So are we going to glow in the dark from some weird radiation or is that the least of our problems,” she looked at the twisted hunk of debris.
Any primary radiation was well below lethal level as was any stellar radiation so the ‘joke’ remained untrue. The analysis of the material could begin (if someone would tell what the inspection would be).
“Afraid not, Cap,” Trainor replied as he slowly wafted the tricorder around the structure.
Kelly picked up the tricorder and began to scan it looking for any signs of where this piece of debris might have come from on the ship. With any luck, there might be a console or such hidden in it that might give her and Tenzig more info about what had happened. “You know people always make fun of the past but what I wouldn’t give to find one of those little black boxes from the ancient past.”
“If you consider this ancient ma’am, what would you consider Earth’s Roman gladiators?” The Ops Officer asked with a smirk on his face. Though by those standards, one could say the Captain was almost ancient as well.
=^= Jen to Atlantis. We are at the door to the structure. It’s very weather beaten but we believe we have found a powered panel and hope to be through shortly. The weather is .. like a day at the beach. =^= He let out a smile as he said that.
- Jen, XO
“You have a locked door you are trying to pick,” Kelly sounded almost heartbroken. The look she gave Tenzig spoke volumes about how much she wished she had picked scissors instead of her rock with the XO earlier. “Understood. If you need a hand or a battering ram let us know. Keep us appraised of your situation. Kelly out.”
=^= That does sum it up, Captain. Perhaps it is frozen and we may need you to come down with some .. de-icer. =^= Jen replied.
Letting out a breath she whacked the tricorder a few times as if beating the instrument would give it more of an incentive to work faster. The reading on the hunk of debris was going much slower than Kelly’s attention span. Looking around the room, she walked over to the replicator and ordered up a crowbar. Walking back to the debris, she twirled it like it was a baton and she was a majorette. Running her hand over the surface she looked for a crack or seam. “Dinosaurs,” she replied simply. “I am far more of a fan of the Greeks than the Romans. Tossing the crowbar in the air, she caught it with a better grip finding a small seam that was about to be opened. “Do you know the lever is dated back to the Stone Age,” she asked. “Archimedes said it best when he said, give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. Right now I am not interested in moving the world, but cracking this thing open like a Kinder candy egg and seeing if there is a surprise inside. My tricorder registered a pocket inside. It might just be an air pocket but having a look-see is far more interesting than math.”
