Following along NE Smith lead the way down the three levels and then the team emerged into a blue colored long hallway that lead likely across much of the central area of the giant pyramid. As they reached another pair of large black stone doors they slid open this time revealing a square shaped 30x30ft room. The edges were lined with some sort of power generators with large heavy power relays and pipes rising up into the ceiling and the floor. Thick strands also crossed the ceiling arcing down on a triangle platform where floating in a suspended forcefield was a small fist sized Crystal, presumably the Creator Stone mentioned before.
Next to the door another Orb came alight. =/\= Greetings visitors, I am Crystal Guardian 3A, you have the pleasure of being the first non-Creators to bare witness to this wonderous room. How may I assist you? =/\= It asked
Glen made to the landing party, =/\= Tinga, have Jasper ask the stone his question now, ‘how can we repair the planetary defences to protect the stone from the raiders coming to take it away/’ =/\=
=/\= I meant ask the stone-crystal guardian. Sorry, it’s a little hectic up here! =/\= added Glen, though in his slip of the tongue, maybe he had accidentally fallen upon the solution itself?
There was a pause, then Glen made one further reply to Tinga, =/\= Tinga, William suggests another tack. Ask the crystal guardian if the creators, or yourselves, can use the properties of the stone itself to fix the planetary defences. =/\=
Jasper turned to the orb. “Can I help in fixing the planetary defenses? Can you show us how to use the stone to fix the defenses? Jasper asked quickly.
=/\= Manual fixing of the ancient ship defensive measures would be near impossible to aide in the current combat currently detected. =/\= The Orb stated =/\= Processing your request, however, to Creatore central control for use of the Stone for such a possibility.. =/\= It added, lines of information in an alien language scrolling past on the surface of its orb shape.
Ensign Jasper Ericson - Jo Engineer
Tinga’s antennae twitched.
=^=A step ahead of you sir.=^= she relayed.
- Tinga, Comms
=/\= Creator central control has agreed your request to use the Creator Stone for repair of the system’s defensive measures is approved. They have adjusted its control parameters to allow one of you to temporarily hold it and focus upon it here to achieve your desired result. =/\= It said.
NE Smith spoke, “..Uh, no offense ma’am, I think it should be you or Ensign Jasper. I’m not qualified to handle reality altering uh....things..” he said.
Tinga smiled and NE Smith.
“Honestly I don’t think anybody is. Jasper, you’re the Engineer, you might get this done faster.” Tinga said.
She was very eager to do it herself but had learned to delegate over the years.
