[Counselors Office - Moments Earlier]

The door hissed open as Ashley entered the smaller modified storage room. The former counselor, an old friend of hers, had left the setup of the office as he liked it when he was transferred to another posting to serve under some rising star Admiral. She had actually ended up on this posting at his personal recommendation as he left.

She glanced around the office for a moment and smiled softly. One thing the two of them had in common was their meticulous organization with everything. It was actually something they had bonded over at the academy. Everything was in it's place already which would allow her to slip into the work much more quickly than she otherwise would be able to. But before that of course, she had to get a physical. Something she had put off until the last possible moment. The implant that gave her the ability to hear was still relatively new and many medical officers still didn't know how to work with it. She had unfortunately had a few to many experiences with doctors that didn't know what they were doing suddenly triggering a feedback loop inside the implant to want to actively seek out her physical. With hesitation she placed her PADD on the desk and then swiftly turned around to exit the room.

[Medbay - Present]

Weir entered the room nervously. She hoped that whoever did her physical would just avoid the implant, but she also knew that was highly unlikely. She stepped out of the door frame and stood in the corner of the room as she prayed that maybe she just wouldn't be noticed at all.

[ Ensign L'mar Rhade ] | [ Katra Station ]

His mother and father were back in guest quarters after some more shopping, Rhade made his way back to Main Engineering when he had Commander t’Lhoell comm him, with news of turbolift shaft 1 being sabotaged. The transporters suffered disruption as well, Rhade had acknowledged the order and after he grabbed a toolkit from a maintenance locker on the way to the core of the station where shaft 1 was.

Rhade arrived at the turbolift control room for the core shafts, since there are a few and used non-stop, a control room was needed to be dedicated to them. He ran several diagnostics on the various connections throughout the shaft and the lifts themselves. Nothing seemed to be erroneous, that in itself was wrong if the First Officer reported that it wasn’t functioning.

He pulled out his tricorder, linked it with the station’s internal sensors, and began scanning the entire shaft, and all lifts, with different parameters. It was a very long shaft, and many lifts throughout the station, so Rhade put the tricorder down on the console and extracted the padd from the kit and accessed the transporter network while he waited.

Transporters were definitely crippled but only a limited radius, which appeared odd. Rhade watched the readings for a minute or two. It moved a few times, so the system wasn’t actually impaired just blocked by an inhibiting device and a mobile one at that. Did they have hostiles on board and the intruder alert didn’t go off? Rhade brought up the video feed of the area the disruption was, it appeared to be affecting the feeds as well.

Rhade hoped Security was dealing with that, he heard the chirp of his tricorder and picked it up to read it. There were unknown devices between decks, they were moving. That meant that the lifts themselves.

”Rrhade to t’Lhoell, I found unknown devicesss on all turrrboliftsss, I have to redirect one at a time to maintenance and check them, I don’t know what it may do if we attempt to trrransssporrrt the devicesss out.”

Ensign Danjar-Torra
[Policyon II - outside the dome]

With Torra's attention on the Romulan and just her still apparent newness with being an officer now (even after a half a year) Torra didn't clue in that the Captain's sharp call was intended for her.

Torra weathered the Romulan's anger at the use of the greeting and then listened to his summary of their day to day existence.  She felt a swell of sympathy for his situation - though she doubted he would appreciate that fact.  When he turned away, she didn't attempt to regain his attention.  She might have tried to approach another - they might have a different perspective - but Nira, unexpectedly just behind her, pointed out the Captain's calling to her.

Torra hurried back to the group and dipped her head toward the Captain."My apologies for keeping you waiting, sir."


Torra nodded at the order and looked to T'Lara as the lead.  "Which lab do you want me to bring them to?"

"I should go with the Commander to ensure that she understands my labeling of the samples."  Torra had taken more than just two samples.  She'd sampled various soil and mineral types both in and out of the dome and she wanted to be certain that the Commander knew which samples were which.

"But once that is done, I would love to grab a snack with you.  I shouldn't be too long.  Will you wait?  Or perhaps come with?"

[USS Discovery]

“No. I can wait. I can do some paper work,” he replied. Truth to be told. He had not wanted to go because it seemed to be odd. He had not wanted people to assume he was to attach to his wife. Which he would love too. The duty comes first and his wife comes in second. But when he is off duty she was his first priority. Not want to have a red alert with her.

“Though be careful with my pet rock,” he told her. There was a wink. “I do hope you won’t find any wrong with the samples.” He nodded to her. Deep down he so wanted to give her a passion kiss. That was too off boundaries.

He had watched them leave as he headed to the helm. He figured he give Ensign Bok-Char a small break. Then he could check on his staff from the console.

PO1 ShranLahr ch'Verret
[Orbit around Zindi Moran - USS Challenger - Bridge]

[Bridge - USS Challenger]

Ian stroked his chin as Mondo made his report and he stood to pace slowly across the bridge after he was done.

"Pergium. Interestin'. Nae the most valuable commodity in the quadrant, but valuable enough ta the right people. Thank you Mister Nari, you have likely given us the 'why' of what is goin' on here, now we need ta learn the who. Hopefully, the away team can answer that question. Otherwise, we will have ta hope Mister ch'Verret gets lucky enough ta find someone makin' a covert delivery."

Despite his need to keep his attention on the sensor readings,  Lahr couldn't help but be overly aware of the Captain slowly pacing across the bridge.  Inwardly, the Andorian was reminded of another superior who liked to pace.  Between the two, Lahr preferred the Scot over the Romulan.  Galloway's pacing seemed as if he just needed movement to think rather than like he was stalking the Andorian. 

Galloway summarized Mondo's discovery of the situation perfectly.  They knew the where and why.  Lahr just hoped preferred that the away team discovered the who, what, and how.

"I'll do my best, sir."

PO2 Danjar-Torra Addams
[USS Discovery - Addams quarters - 6 months ago]

Her father's timing at calling back with word of the Captain's birthday, had caught Torra and Don just as they were heading to bed.

"So June 7." he had a smile like a cat. "And his wife would like to attend. Cool. She even mentioned the children too," he slapped his hands together as he greedy like scrooge.

"I so would want a holopicture of the captain's expression when he do this!" he was all excited. This was like the second best thing all his life. It was fun!

"You know I have a another sneaky way to get him off guard if he catches on. I hope he does not," he placed his hands on Torra's shoulder. "I feel this is a deep, secret conspiracy against the Captain."

He kissed her on the shoulder and then her neck. "What do you know about Bajoran holidays? Is there a celebration they have? Or we can have a appreciation holiday on the ship as a the 'false' cover. What do you think, love?" he asked her.

Don's odd mannerisms at learning of the birth date prompted a curious look until he mentioned that it felt like a conspiracy.   That earned a slight frown. 

"But we are doing this FOR him.  It's not against him at all." she clarified.  She felt she had to make that clear or else she might not be able to continue with the subterfuge.

Torra didn't know if it was her comment or just his glee that prompted his amorous attention to neck and shoulder, but she loved it.  Her head angled to the side allowing easier access for him.

"I don't currently, but if you promise more of this I will check into the topic of Bajoran holidays tomorrow.  If there are none near to his birthday... I'm certain we can come up with some excuse to have the party planned with his awareness without him knowing it's for him."

Ensign Danjar-Torra
[Policyon II - outside the dome]

[Outside the Dome - Capital City - Policyon II]

"Alright you two, let's save the speculation away from listening ears.  Let's just collect the sample and head back." the Captain stated, looking around at both the people moving about their lives and the giant dome next to them.. with the people inside.

He turned as Torra walked over to the first person she saw, and hit bit his lower lip.  "Ensign!" he called out, trying to get her attention.

With Torra's attention on the Romulan and just her still apparent newness with being an officer now (even after a half a year) Torra didn't clue in that the Captain's sharp call was intended for her.

NPC - Romulan Refugee

The man looked at the Federation officer, and gave a sour look.  "Don't... don't say that to me.  You have no idea what it means." he said, glancing up at the dome.  It was clear that he didn't want to talk much, but she did ask a question.

"What is there to say?  Our homes were destroyed by Hobus, and it followed us here.  Do you have proof of their concerns?  There has been full transparency and no one, not even your Federation, seems to know exactly what has happened to this planet.  We're doing our best, but with no oversight from any government, people care less about their home and more about surviving the next day.  That is all." he said, turning and leaving. 

[Lieutenant JG Nira Said | Outside the Dome | Policyon II | Hobus Region]

Nira started at the Captain's statement. She realized there would, indeed, be people listening. Regardless of her lowering tone, she realized that, volume of voice or not, the Romulan refugees could hear them. If only we all could discuss things telepathically...or just between minds, she thought to herself. Best way to discuss things without running the risk of being overheard. But that usually requires permission.

Then she saw the Captain notice Torra trying to talk to a Romulan refugee, as well as his reaction. And she shared his reaction. Torra may be sociable, but they weren't supposed to be making friends. It wasn't the time to chat. Nira approached Torra to get her, seeing as she didn't acknowledge the Captain's call at first. She drew close as Torra chatted, but she stopped when she heard the Romulan Torra was chatting with.

In fact, it wasn't so much the words that gave her pause, but the emotions she felt from the refugee. It seemed like the refugees were more than just refugees. They had no idea what was happening. She realized that for all the refugees knew, they were the only ones left of the Romulan Star Empire. They knew nothing of any faction, any government, any formation of a Romulan body politick.

Hearing the Captain calling again as the refugee departed, Nira said, "Ensign! The Captain's calling!" Hopefully it was enough to get her back over. And once they did, they assembled to beam up. Nira knew exactly what to provide in her report to Commander Felder.

Torra weathered the Romulan's anger at the use of the greeting and then listened to his summary of their day to day existence.  She felt a swell of sympathy for his situation - though she doubted he would appreciate that fact.  When he turned away, she didn't attempt to regain his attention.  She might have tried to approach another - they might have a different perspective - but Nira, unexpectedly just behind her, pointed out the Captain's calling to her.

Torra hurried back to the group and dipped her head toward the Captain."My apologies for keeping you waiting, sir."


The Captain still called her over, and once everyone was back together, Nevir tapped his badge to beam the away team back up.

"Get science to study those soil samples.  Commander, I want you to handle the studies.  I will report back to the Free State and Starfleet, and see what is our next move... if there is one.  At this point, we have no real reason to assume foul play." the Captain stated, turning and leaving to his own quarters. 

Torra nodded at the order and looked to T'Lara as the lead.  "Which lab do you want me to bring them to?"

[USS Discovery - Transporter room]

"Commander, here is my small rock," he hand it to her. "Please can I have it back. I would to start a rock collection of planets I visited."

The mission so far had seemed to be a success. They came to observe. Gather samples from planet. Torra had talked to a local which was not brought up. That was up to Torra. Then he looked at Torra. "You going for a quick snack?" he asked her. "Or you planning to join the Commander?" he would not blame her. He knew she was curious but she was more operations.

"I should go with the Commander to ensure that she understands my labeling of the samples."  Torra had taken more than just two samples.  She'd sampled various soil and mineral types both in and out of the dome and she wanted to be certain that the Commander knew which samples were which.

"But once that is done, I would love to grab a snack with you.  I shouldn't be too long.  Will you wait?  Or perhaps come with?"

Congratulations everyone!

2020 has been challenging in previously unimaginable ways...  but I'm grateful to have found Shadowfleet and its community of players.  The stories we write here help me cope with everything going on outside of the Fleet.   

Don, Nira, Luby, Dranik and Tekin.  I love the IC relationships we've built over the course of the year. 

T'Lara, Zavrol, Lek, Anastasia, and Safefta - I know Torra hasn't connected with your characters much.. whether that's because of mission dynamics or cause folks have been away due to personal reasons... While you are here, I hope our future mission posts change that.

You are all part of Torra's upsol, her family and I want to build that connection with each and every one of you.   

Thank you all for being a part of this community and this simm.
