SNIP

It was then that there was a flash of light. When the two could see again, standing near them was a sharply dressed man with a moustache. He blinked a few times at what seemed to be a new environment for him. Noting the two, he spoke. “Excuse me, but I appear to have been… brought here?”

Mr. Snuggles (GM)

Toveka scooted back fast enough to thunk her back on the desk behind her they had been covered behind. “HEY!” She hollered just as Baldur swung around.

As soon as he regained his vision, Baldur turned around to the new arrival and swung his rifle around. He held it in a lowered position, ready to fire if necessary but not raising it in a threat. His eyes narrowed as he studied the man carefully “So it appears” He started politely before shifting his posture “Identify yourself” He said in an authoritative tone an stance.

SOO - Baldur

Toveka’s teeth clenched as she bit back a much less formal greeting. The Science Chief scooted sideways and stood up, back to the wall, in case anyone else showed up. Her own phaser was pointed at the man, and though her heart was racing on the inside, she was managing to remain calm on the outside. Last thing she wanted was the Baldur, or the Security Chief, chiding her for freezing and not backing Baldur. Tapping her comm badge, she spoke up before the man could reply, =^= Science to Security, intruder alert.=^= Friendly or not, he was definitely an intruder. And being one who usually thought of all possibilities she could, the idea of this guy wandering the ship before anyone knew he was here did not sit well with her. She let Baldur take the interrogation part. He seemed prepared for it, anyway.

The man took a few steps back. “Oh my. My apologies for intruding, but my name is Nikola Tesla, and I have no idea what I am doing here.”

Mr. Snuggles (GM)

Baldur didn’t look away from the new stranger but talked to Toveka “Scan him, focus on finding temporal, holographic, or any mechanical signatures.” He smiled slightly “And I think those boys out there are a bigger threat than Mr. Tesla here” He then addressed the apparent historical figure standing in front of him “Would be kind enough to inform me of a few things” He said with a polite smile but didn’t turn his weapon away “Firstly, where you were before arriving here, what you were doing and what year it is?” The only real reason he was familiar with this 20th-century figure was a holonovel adventure he partook him a few years back where Nikola Tesla was a side character but his appearance had been based on some sort of musical icon from the same century albeit later on, some Starman he was unfamiliar with.

SOO - Baldur

Telsa glanced around. “Well, while where I was it was 1901, although considering the state of this place, I’m not quite sure this is still the case.” There was a shrug. “As for what I was doing, I was just reading over my notes from my magnifying transmitter tests. From what I have observed, I belive that the entire globe of the planet can be used to conduct electrical energy.” He let out a chuckle. “Although those tests were not without their danger, as there was a few times that I thought that the lightning would go into me instead of the intended target.”

Toveka’s scans would show that Tesla was saturated with temporal energy, and had no traces of any holographic or mechanical signatures.

Mr. Snuggles (GM)

Toveka scanned him and frowned. “Temporal energy. Certainly accounts for the fuzziness a moment ago.” She was familiar with Tesla as a figure of history for his tests and inventions to do with electricity. The Prime Directive would have to be adhered to here more carefully than nearly any other instance she was aware of. His tests and inventions were the cornerstone of so many things, that to give those ideas to him out of order, or even to skip certain steps all together, could have devastating affects on the future of the human race and everyone they had come in contact with since reaching into space.

Despite the fear still tingling over her skin, the half Romulan frowned. “He has to stay here. In this office,” she blurted to Baldur. “If he sees things…” she looked at the man beside her and wondered if he would get her meaning without her having to say it out loud. Her fear was temporarily trapped in the back of her head as science and practicality took over in the moment.
