Lissi glanced back at the console as it beeped. “Captain,” she said as she turned back to him once more. “Science Chief requesting replicated tractor parts to assist someone on the surface. Should I go help?” She wasn’t exactly sure how much help she could be on a tractor. But certainly it wasn’t much different than most machines. Parts were parts. It was merely the order of their use that would need to be figured out.
“Yes Chief, take of that and lets make certain we don’t give away the whole farm to help in the process.”
Lissi got up after sending word to engineering to send NE Brisban up to man the engineering post on the bridge. “Yes, Sir…” she responded and headed out to go see what was up with the tractor.
OOC: I might have missed something in my reading back, ignore me if I’m wrong :P
IC: Mason watched the events on the screen, his eyebrows furrowed in thought. “Do we actually have any reason to chase that man?” He asked, “I wasn’t aware that just running away from our away team was an automatic signal to release the hounds? It might cause more mistrust and problems to chase him down without cause than to let him go. We can track him from here, he’s not going anywhere.”

Solark explained, “He ran at the sight of our officers, do you not find it suspicious?”
“What if I did?” Mason replied, looking at the man. “That doesn’t mean he has done something illegal in a jurisdiction we have no part in policing or that it automatically means we give chase to someone who hasn’t actually done anything to us, in his own settlement. We are the Federation, not the Klingons or Romulan Empire with their secret police. Captain I recommend we call off our people or we risk creating an incident. If we catch him we have no right to remove him or question him, and no grounds on which to do so. Besides maybe we want to track him and see where he is heading, then take a look in that area.”

“You are not wrong that this isn’t our jurisdiction, but we were also giving permission to investigate as well… makes this a gray area. Though, we don’t seem to be having a hard time monitoring, they haven’t put anything up that blocks our sensors… so let’s have the team break off for now… see where they go and we can regroup at that juncture.” Calin ordered as he nodded over at Solark to send the signal to the pursuit team.
Solark nodded and proceeded to contact the away teams, =/\=Away teams this is the Odin. I am relaying to you the co-ordinates of a suspicious person who had fled the market. Our sensors are tracking him. Use your tricorders to get update co-ordinates. You are to pursue and apprehend this person for questioning.=/\=
Morganna watched as things unfolded, she kept an eye on the man that had been fleeing to see what he was doing, but she also kept her mind open to the others on the surface. This could go south quickly.
