After checking all the systems, Freja stood on the bridge of her ship, eager to get underway.

Part of her enjoyed this bit, the anticipation of getting underway and the little bit of unknown. Never quite knowing what would wait for them when the ship arrived at its destination.

She loved every inch of those feelings and wished she could hold onto them for the length of the mission. Fortunately, she reclaimed them at the start of a new mission but it would be nice to have a bottle of them ready to go when times got a bit rough.

“Ah Captain eager to leave?”

Harris, XO

“Sure am, aren’t you?” Freja grinned at her XO, “There’s just something about the excitement of getting underway that always gets me in a great mood.”

~Freja Andreassen~

Braxton nodded and spoke quietlyto the Captain”I will say I’m more anxious right now since our last mission.”

Harris, XO

“Indeed,” Freja replied, “It’s not a bad thing to be cautious, especially given we are headed out to investigate a murder and a missing starship…neither of those things are particularly good things.”

A chirp on the comms danced from the speakers before Rebecca’s voice reported in. =^=Science to bridge, we are good to go Captain. All gear and personnel accounted for.=^= She added with a sigh of resignation she couldn’t keep out of her voice, =^=Guests included.=^= Included with the comm would be a computer upload of the stores and availability of all the Captain wanted to know about Science.

Lt Rebecca Morrison

=^= Bridge to Science thank you and standby. XO out.=^= =^= Bridge to Engineering and Security status report.=^=

Harris, XO

A text message came through comms to the XO from the flight deck. =/\= Flight deck secured for transit. All personnel accounted for. Squadron ready for overflight operations upon arrival and drop from warp. CAG =/\=

Lardel, CAG

OOC: correcting typo.

The travel from the Starbase was quiet. Stars from the warp effect seemed to fly by. The several days journey as they approached the nebula was utterly uneventful. Once the ‘Scar’ Nebula was more visible on long range scans it showed itself to be like it’s namesake. The Klingons called it the ‘Bat’leth’ due to its rough shape, the interior of the arc laden with gouts of celestial gas like teeth. Within, young stars shone out brightly through the expanse of orange, yellow, green and blue shades of the nebula.

Three dots appeared showing the three mining colonies present. One was in a bold circle - their destination. It was on the outward edge of the nebula.

=^= Security to Bridge. One of the Magnus team, uh, Larden, requests permission to come to the bridge. =^=
- Larden

=^=Permission granted. Harris out=^= Looking at the Captain “I hope I didn’t overstep Sir.”


=^= On our way down =^= came the security reply.

“No,” Freja shook her head, “Hopefully he’s got some useful information for us, so we can get started right away.”

A couple of minutes later the doors opened and three figures emerged. Two were in security red and one was definitely civilian, dressed in a similar well tailored suit. The ‘Magnus Corp’ pin was subtle, but still prominent on his lapel. He carried his slim briefcase in hand. He paused just inside the doors to get his bearings, his balding head showing up harsher in the overhead lighting. When he spotted the Captain with a flicker of recognition he approached. The security took positions to either side of the doors.

“Captain, thank you for seeing me.” He glanced at the viewscreen. “I didn’t realize we were that close.” His eyes squinted as he studied the nebula. “I imagine that you have questions for me, and I have an Intel briefing for you about the planet and it’s operations.”

“Alright, do you want to go over that with just me or with my senior staff?” Freja asked.

~Freja Andreassen~

“My two colleagues are working to have a meeting with some of your other staff for a more focused briefing to their expertise. My hope was to discuss things with your senior people - counselor, executive officer that are specific to help you understand the region and situation. That is not to say that some of the information will not overlap here - the individual meetings are more to allow focus in the particular disciplines.”
- Mason Larden

“My Counselor is also my Chief of Security, so I imagine he’ll already be partaking in that meeting?” Freja asked, “If so, Commander Harris and I can meet with you in my ready room right away. If you’d rather he be present, we can do it in the Briefing Lounge which is a bit larger.”

~Freja Andreassen~

“If he is at that meeting then all the better he remain there. We can convene to your ready room,” Mason replied, shifting the thin case from one hand to the other. “You have a very expansive operations center here,” he commented. “Makes a bridge look squalid.”
