Hunter pointed at the symbols to the man who was an archaeologist and anthropologist ‘’Your call I believe ‘’ the doctor told him ‘’Those symbols could well be a message of some kind,that child may be someone imported to go to all this trouble ‘’.
Turning back to Tia, Hunter asked if she had scanned the sphere ,looking around him he saw more of them ‘’Where were these position Lt ?’‘ meanwhile the doctor went round the pod to check if it was connected to some energy source …if it was then he was not so sure about transporting it to a shuttle bay, He scanned with his medical tricoder ,wondering if anything could be picked up with the pod closely sealed.
As the away team could inform Hunter, the balls had been piled up around the sleeper pod of the child inside the box. And as had been noted earlier the whole setup had seemed jury rigged, not normal to the sleeper ship’s original construction as it had been tied into the ship’s original power systems.
Scans of the pod showed much as had been said before, the child was male, not an Alstairian, and was maybe about 5-8 years old roughly by human counts. The child was stable in stasis, and showed no signs of sickness or other maladies that were obvious. The only way to really get more information likely would be to transfer the child and pod to the Merrimack, a task easily accomplished by transporter.
The balls themselves seemed not really that impressive, the outer casing was made of a common steel not too different then those found on Earth in the late 21st century. They were about 3-4 inches spherical in shape, quite smooth, obviously machine made. Internal scans of the balls though showed they had some kind of organic matter inside, the exact makeup though was hard to discern just on tricorder scans, a scientific and medical analysis on the Merrimack’s labs and cracking open a ball or two would probably reveal more in time.
‘’Lt why not take one or two spheres and let medical and science check what kind of organic matter is inside?’‘ Hunter asked Tia .His eyes then fell on the anthropologist/archeologist ‘’ Have you managed to figure what the symbols mean ?’‘ being a doctor he could only guess and guessing was not on the table.not with the Captain.
William, still working on the computer core, checked the flight records of any data that might explain where the mysterious Stasis pod might have come from.
=/\= Captain the male child and the pod can be safely transported to our ship =/.\= the doctor’s deep voice was heard over the comm =/\= We’re also bringing two spheres as the scans show something organic inside just for medical and perhaps the science lab would work on =/\= obviously it would ultimately be Glen’s decision.
For all he knew it would be filled with clay ..he mused to himself.
=/\= Doctor Hunter? Before I transport the whole kit and caboodle across, how did you determine that it’s safe? And the transporter filter is likely to freak out if the spheres contain organic matter. We’d need to bypass the safety protocols! =/\=
Hunter could be heard clearing his throat =/\= Captain from my scans the male child is stable ,obviously we cannot determine more not without opening the pod and I would not recommend it at this point.The transporter could easily transport both the the pod with the child in it ,what I’m not sure is if it be of benefit or harmful to transport it directly to the statis unit in sickbay .=/\=.
=/\=Sir the spheres outer layer can be found on earth as well, its common steel =/\= . The doctor would have much preferred not to tell the Captain over the comm but he had no choice =/\= Sir we can confidently say the human body is organic =/\= .
=/\= It was the organic content of the sphere I was concerned about rather than the shells, but we can try and see what the transporter says about them. The child should be okay to beam over to Sickbay while in stasis and you can decided whether to wake him up over here. =/\=
= /\=Aye Captain=/\= Hunter responded =/\= Though its up to the CMO who has to take that decision =/\=.
Tia nodded to the Doctor at a lull in the conversation. “I think we can transport the child and the spheres separately. We can use containment protocols on the spheres so the content isn’t disrupted or broke down during transport, as well. Then science and medical can have a go at them. I would say maybe a half dozen. And I will make sure we have the location of the whole pile here in case it’s vital to the child in some way.” She couldn’t imagine what way it would be so vital they would need them, because they had been outside her pod. But it never hurt to keep an eye on things. “And I’ll have an engineer and a scientist remain here as well. We don’t know how the other spheres may react if these are messed with,” she pointed to the others she had picked up. A good half dozen already lay in her hands.
