I concur,” replied Solark as he looked up from his display. “Everything seems as it should.”
“Well… maybe then we need to dig into the history. Find out what you can about the people we know, the ships, and their past. I don’t plan to go chasing phantoms, but there has to be something about these people. How can they just hide out here without any knowledge from Starfleet? How are we the first here?” Calin said as he looked over at Solark. “Does that not strike you odd to find such a large group gathering and we are just now hearing about it? Space may be huge… but with sensors and traffic it’s hard to imagine no one of our people or allies have even word of anyone here. I don’t trust secrets.”
Lissi mused out loud. “Perhaps it just happened. No one had a chance to get a message out. And if they weren’t overdue for a check-in…” she let the thought trail off. There were a million reasons they were first and no one knew. But like everything else so far, it was just guesses. She started to scan the surrounding space to see if she could find the next closest ship, friend or foe. Maybe they would have an idea if they were close enough.
“This part of space has not been explored yet,” said Solark. “We are aware, from long range surveys from three decades ago that there is a star system here. However, it was considered too remote. Yet it is strange that we were not able to detect the colony until we were relatively close to it.”
Solark then did some more digging and said, “Sensors do detect possible jamming devices that might mask the presence of the colony from long range sensors. However, they are offline at the moment.”
“Odd… that doesn’t prove guilt… but it isn’t something you usually find in places that have nothing to hide. Lets see what else we might find.”
Lissi frowned. “If they are offline, maybe I can tap into them?” She tried again. This time trying to find some remote access link that would give her a way to tap into the programming of the jammers and see if there was a recognizable signature to them that may explain ‘who’ would build the jamming devices.
OOC: We are already in the colony.
((my bad, thought still heading there or in orbit, missed that.. amended post))
“I can assume it’s for raiders and others, but maybe go ahead and see if there is some bigger fish out here.” Calin ordered her.
“Sir,” said Solark, “I believe we are being scanned, passively. It’s like what the ancient use of pinhole cameras. Rather than flooding us with particles to reveal our ship, they are making use of the surrounding radiation as well as those emitted by our ship to create a ‘picture’ of our ship.”
“Can we get a pinpoint? Where is this coming from?” Calin ordered as he looked over at Solark.
Morganna stepped back on the bridge as Solark spoke about them being scanned. That didn’t sound like it was a good thing “Do we know who’s scanning us?” She asked as she moved further into the Bridge area.
Lissi expanded the search beyond them as well as narrowed the beam down to see if she could find the ‘pinhole camera’ that Solark spoke of.
Lissi spoke up as she searched, “I’m looking… one more minute…”
“Lieutenant,” Solark said to the CE, “I am getting the reading at the platform that Maya and Gum original came from. I am assuming that it is so with you?”
Solark / GM
Lissi nodded and glanced back. “Yes, I am getting the same location.” She had a mild look of concern on her face as she turned back to the console to be sure it was the only reading.
Morganna took a seat in one of the chairs near the back of the Bridge and just watched and listened. She was only concerned about the away team. She closed her eyes for a moment and opened her mind to what was going on around her.
((From Lissi: Concern and curiosity, not panic, though.))
Solark watched with curiosity as the counsellor began her psychic search.
Morganna could sense that in two instances there was hostility to the Starfleet officers. There was one rather naughty amorous situation developing at one location. There was also unease and deception in another location where there was a sense of a Starfleet officer who was zealous, and was suspicious of the people on the planet.
Morganna spoke up “Captain, I’m sensing that there may be some hostility against some of our officers.” She said as she ignored the amorous situation and another Star Fleet officer seems to be overly zealous and seems to be suspicious of the people on the planet.” She said as she tried to get more information about the hostility that was going on.
