“They are going to have to drop shields anyway for containment.”
Franklin walked onto the bridge and went directly to the Engineering station, trying not to interupt what was going on with the senior officers. He quietly reported to Chief Sullivan about his prior shift repairs, and handed her a PaDD with the results.
“Yep, that’s the only option,” the Captain said, agreeing with Avik and Marsh, thinking about the situation for a second longer. Then he started giving out more orders
“Helm, engage engines along plotted course.”
“Donnelly, try hailing that ship; I doubt it’ll even work, but we have to try.” A species this early in spaceflight might not have even had communications equipment for talking to aliens.
Clodaugh began trying to hail the ship. =^=This is the USS Europa to the ship in distress. We are here to assist. Can you respond?=^=
“Marsh, can you assess the pilot’s current condition?”
Dvorak looked at Avik for a second, before asking: “What do you think about beaming the pilot right here on the Bridge?”

The helmsman acknowledged the order and brought the ship to warp. After about a minute of travel at warp, the ship dropped out of it and moved to get ahead of the drifting vessel at full impulse. The shields came under bombardment from the intense radiation being given off by the binary stars. The clock started ticking.
“We can flood the ship with energized photons. It will overwhelm the ship’s shields and effectively drop them enough for us to beam off the pilot.... probably.”
The Captain’s suggestion to beam the occupant to the bridge made her pause in her hails. “I don’t recommend beaming them straight here, Sir. We aren’t sure of their exact technology level and this could be a breach of First Contact protocols as well as a security risk. My recommendation is to beam to medical. The other reason being we aren’t sure wat injuries or exposure they have had and we can’t risk the Command Crew here on the bridge with an unknown.” It was probably speaking out of turn, but she had answered so swiftly, it had surprised even her. “Sorry, Sir… just an opinion,” she quickly tried to apologize and recover.
