Main Sim - Shuttlebay - Bringing in the asteroid ship

Posted March 13, 2023, 9:19 a.m. by Gamemaster CockRoach (GM) (Robert Archer)


Once the bay depressurized and the tractor emitter controls rerouted slowly the ‘asteroid ship’ came within range and angle. Despite it only being less then 50 meters away now to naked eye it really did look nothing but like a hunk of rock. As the emitter grabbed hold and began towing it in no effort seemed to be made by the ‘ship’ to resist. Assuming someone was on there to do so. Conversely if it was say automated then the automation obviously had no programming then it seems to resist going off its assigned course.

Slowly oh SO slowly over the next 30 nail biting minutes of hauling it in carefully with barely a half an inch on either sides to spare the asteroid ship was soon in the bay and shortly after repressurized for entry. Several security NEs and engineers came in to begin to take stock of the ship. From the control room and even more up close the ship STILL looked like just a hunk of a rock. But as some NE’s would soon be pointing out heavily disguised ports for thrusters and such soon were noticed here and there, the same for other small sensor arrays, and the like that gave it away as being of a ship. But as of yet no clues were evident who had made it or why.

Once the ship was safely within the bay, and Jorik was able to calm his adrenaline, he pressed a button to comm the bridge. “Thoran to bridge. We have it.”

With the ship secured the security NE’s begin to look it over more closely. One shouted up to the control room to Jorik. “..Hey sir? You want to call some other more skilled labor down here to look this thing over? Us red shirts here arent finding much so far…” he said.

The second a few feet away made the comment to follow up, “..Yeah well least its not a space monster trying to eat us......yet....” he added.

Engineering Ensign Luis Delgado stepped into the bay alongside the other engineers sent to examine the asteroid ship. He got to scanning with his tricoder, especially around the disguised thruster ports and sensor arrays. “Where’s the hatch? Unless they teleported the crew inside whoever had to have built some way to reach the ship underneath all this rock.” And may the security team be standing by right where it opens.

Elbbirt and Shrine walked into the shuttlebay. Strange ships and possible unknown aliens. There was risk for illness and injury. They took up a spot near the doors for a small first aid station just in case.

Ensign Alana McShane studied the ship with great intrigue, though she admitted she was jealous at the thought of the mission Lieutenant Anders must’ve been on on the planet below. On the other hand, she was looking forward to the possibility of proving how able she was at protecting the Sentinel while he was away.

Looking the big rock ship over Ensign Delgado’s comment about any crew being beamed inside it seemed more and more likely. All scans and physical visual evidence showed NO doors, hatches, or such that someone could fit inside. The only exterior ports were those for the thruster system. Scans confirmed there was a small interior space about 20x20ft or so and about 10ft or so in height. No signs of life were picked up however. They would either need to cut the ship open by phaser drills or beam inside themselves from a transporter room.
