USS Discovery / Re: Season 14, Episode 2: Delusions
« Last post by Nira Said on 24 minutes ago »
[Polar Capital City - Ri'lowo - USS Allegheny]

With the exception of a need to either limit exposure or innoculate from the radiation, both worlds were still very much Class M.  Both planets were coming back from the annihilation they gave each other, and that made for a breathable atmosphere if slightly warmer. 

They were able to make it just within the emitting field before their sensors were scrambled and they were forced to land just inside the 5km zone so that they would be able to take off again.  From the ground it was impossible to see where the beam was coming from; indeed it was like a shielding bubble was formed which obscured the emitting beam, and made it so that they would need to find another method to find and disable the beam.  At least from the ground, their handheld equipment was functional, at least for within the field; but they were cut off from Discovery and the rest of the planet.

As soon as the runabout touched down, Lek moved and grabbed an engineer's tool kit and a medical kit. He quickly opened the medkit, took out the hyprospray and dialed up Hyronalin, a standard anti-radiation medication, before injecting himself and passing it to the others in the away team. Once everyone was prepped, he closed the medkit and took out a tricorder.

"Okay, that reverse the polarity thing will only delay matters on the Discovery, we've got to get to the emitter on this planet and do so quickly. I say we split up, Mister Bervarn go with Lieutenant Addams. Lieutenant Said will go with me. If you fan out within your team, stay in visual range. No telling what sort of wildlife may be about. Let's move out, Discovery is counting on us."
[Lieutenant JG Nira Said | Runabout Allegheny | Polar Capital City | Ri'lowo]

Nira could see the radioactive residue on the sensors; the planets were undoubtedly recovering from the nuclear fallout, but the atmosphere was still breathable, all according to sensors. Looking around, Nira saw Lek getting out a medkit and getting ready radioactive inoculations.

"An excellent precaution, Lieutenant," she said. "As an Engineer, you know about various forms of radiation and what to prepare against."

After she got the inoculation with the rest of the team, she was assigned to go with Lek. She could understand not going with Evandev; infatuation was bound to distract her from the mission. Plus, he was in good hands with Don. And she can understand staying in visual range; a Ferengi wasn't hard to miss.

Looking outside, she could see that it'll be tricky to find the emitters, but at least the tricorders were working. But she looked back at the sensors. They were cut off from the Discovery. She wondered if they were in some kind of shield bubble.

A lot of good that did the original inhabitants,
thought Nira to herself. They had tractor emitters and a shield bubble but even that didn't save them, poor fools.

"Don't forget these," she said, getting to the runabout armory and getting out as many phasers as she could for each person to hold. "First team that finds the emitter, place the phasers against it and set them to overload, and run like shite back to the runabout as fast as possible."

Once she distributed the phasers, she got to the airlock and opened it. She felt a wave of heat when it opened, like opening an oven door while it was still slightly heated up, and then stepped out looking around. While the sensors indicated how warm it was outside, she didn't expect it to be so warm.

"By Allah, it's warm," she said. "If it weren't for the fact that it's an entirely different planet, I'd assume I was home. My Earth home."

As she got her tricorder working, searching for the emitter's origin, she unzipped her outer uniform and took off the grey-and-black overlay, revealing the rest of her gold uniform. Sticking her comm badge on and tossing the grey-and-black into the runabout, she looked back at Lek.

"Getting anything yet, Lieutenant?" she asked.

Hrafn - who was used to taking Ops on the Healy now and then too, nodded and toggled the appropriate buttons on the console.

"Say hi to Eydis for me Zex! And Greetings from the kids, they were rather taken with hir!" the Science Chief added with a smile.

"I look forward to discussing this in more depth, Sir, and enjoying some bloodwine!" she said with a wink.


[Bridge - IKS Lod Qan - Earlier]

The Deltan smiled.  She remembered the tour of the Tholian ship fondly.  It was such an educational experience. 

And the kids had had so much fun.  She was sure they would be talking about it for years to come.  As would she.

"I will.  Perhaps after we get back to Katra we can have another adventure.  Besides I still have to compare notes with your daughter about the report she was working on" Zex replied.  She dipped her head slightly as if to says goodbye for now.

Holodeck / Re: A Visit to Romulus
« Last post by Tess tLhoell on 1 hour ago »
[USS Healy - Holodeck 1 (Romulus - Ki Baratan Market)]


Tess took the pouch of coin from Rayek, smiling up at him. "Thank you. I won't take long, I promise." Leaning in closer when he did, she listened to what he told her. So the Romulans haggled. That definitely sounded like a thing they did. Also that they tried to get the better of strangers.


She watched Rayek leave and then turned to the vendor who welcomed her. "Jolan-tru", she said, smiling. "I am looking for a gift for my husband", she explained, her blue eyes wandering over the many quite nice looking traditional garments. Pretty much all of the wear she saw was in earthy tones, browns in almost every shade and muddy greens. "Could you show me some of your wares, please?" She thought asking for recommendations was the better thing to do. She was so excited about the whole thing that she didn't even notice the guard who was observing her.




The guard who approached Rayek gave him a wary look as he did, his hand seemingly casually resting on the disruptor that was holstered at his belt.

At Rayek's salutation the guard merely bowed his head in acknowledgement. He was reluctant to return the proper salutation and with that acknowledge the man's superior rank when belonging to another fleet and not the Romulan Army.

"Aeek'h'i 'hh ieiuqh iuyih iudaiht here hrrau'khir? (*What is your business here?)", the guard demanded to know, the disdain Rayek had been trying to avoid showing in his voice was showing more in the Romulan guard's voice. A Romulan in a Starfleet uniform was a provocation.

[Deck 1 - Main Bridge - USS Discovery]

The shuddering was starting to increase as the pressure on the hull exceeded tolerance, and the structural integrity of the ship was starting to fall.  Before long, there was damage found in the nacelles, the farthest out part of the ship, as well as the hull stresses at maximum on the farthest port and starboard sides if the saucer section. 

The Captain swirled his chair around to face the ops and engineering stations.  "Shut down the warp nacelles and engines.  Reverse the shield polarity, and divert auxiliary power to the structural integrity. Take it from the weapons if you have to." he ordered, clenching the chair.

As soon as the shields flipped, a repellant force caused a large shudder throughout the ship... however the shuddering started to lessen.  Structural integrity was still falling, but much slower... but as a result, the available power was draining.  Pressure was still high, but they at least bought them some time.  They needed to either get rid of those beams, or more likely find a way to neutralize the effects.  At least they were in no danger of a warp breach... even with two of the nacelles damaged and one shorted out. 

"This is just a stop-gap measure... we need to find a way to neutralize the beam effects.  I need option, people!" he ordered, finally standing up.

Lt. Cmdr. Tess Moreno
[Katra Station - Deck 22 - Sickbay - Isolation Room]

The Romulan woman's dislike of her quick decision was not lost on Tess. However, she looked confidently back at her. She was absolutely sure that nothing else would have come to her mind even if she had taken more time to think about it. She was certain this was the thing she wanted to ask of Karinne t'Movel.

Of course the woman wanted to know who she was inquiring about. She likely had already drawn the connection to Rayek, but Tess did her best not to give any indications about whether she was right with that or not. "I'm sorry, lhhei. This is not something I can speak of right now."

When Karinne agreed to accept Tess' request, she tried to not destroy the rather solemn atmosphere that had developed during the talk of Romulan honor. But Tess was grateful and happy to have found a way to investigate on it. "Khnai'ru rhissiuy."
