TKirr: ::raises her brows and thinks:: I
assume it hibernates less and lives in a
climate more exposed to the sun.
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::lets out a held breath as
the ship slows without breaking into pieces::
EnsignRuder: P'Tel make sure the inertial
dampers return to normal capacity.
CSciAxelalexa: ::nods:: Yes, we noticed that
behavior. And the eyes?
CounselorTempest: A girlfriend?
EnsignRuder: Kephart, make sure the
dilithium flow returns to a stable level.
ensignjerryswiss: yup from sickbay
EnsignRuder: P'Tel, Kephart, Potter> Aye
CounselorTempest: That's good.

your Arthur image. A true angel of

CounselorTempest: Well, contact me if
you ever need anything - or if you
just want to talk, all right?
TKirr: ::turns her gaze, then makes a
slight start, remaining silent::
Lt Allen Zinthys: Sir, I have it. She's
CounselorTempest: ::stands up:: You can
go now, Ensign. Enjoy your time off!
TKirr: I... am not sure, sir.
CmdrBrookeDolan: Any visible damage?
RAdm AC Zuriyev: On screen.

the bridge to see what's going on::
CounselorTempest: ::leaves her office
and takes her place on the bridge,
watching the view screen::

the USS Valiant adrift in space::
RAdm AC Zuriyev: ::Winces::
TKirr: <<btw, Axe, is this creature dead
Cdr Sullivan: :::looks at Solitaire::: You are
Lt Allen Zinthys: Sir, there's no life
RAdm AC Zuriyev: It is partially gone...
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Magnify.
ensignjerryswiss: :: just stare at the image
on the viewscreen::
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::tightens her lips:: Damn,
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Taryn, get us closer.
Lt Allen Zinthys: I am, however, getting
strange readings from the hull. ::Zooms
LtJG Taryn: Aye..
ensignjerryswiss: what the...... what
happened to the ship?
LtJG Taryn: ::moves the ship closer::
CmdrBrookeDolan: Gotta love those strange
Lt Allen Zinthys: Something... biological
CSciAxelalexa: Specimen> ::looks up at
RAdm AC Zuriyev: There is some sort
of... goo... on the hull.
Cdr Sullivan: :::her bridge update console
beeps softly and she flicks it on, getting a feed
from the bridge viewscreen::::
TKirr: ::blinks as the creature blinks
back at her::
EnsignRuder: +Bridge+ Ruder to the Bridge.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Taryn, try to
interface with their computer system.
Lt Allen Zinthys: Could that be what
Cdr Sullivan: :::frowns and looks at it more
ensignjerryswiss: :: has a feeling
something bad is about to happen::
LtJG Taryn: aye sir..::
LtJG Taryn: ::starts to set up a relay::
CmdrBrookeDolan: +Ruder+ This is
Commander Dolan. Go ahead.
EnsignRuder: +Bridge+ We should analyze
that stuff, I have tank here in Engineering that is
set for containment.
CSciAxelalexa: You might want to step back
CmdrBrookeDolan: <m> Gotta love that goo
TKirr: ::steps back::
Cdr Sullivan: :::does a quick staff check to see
who is on duty and who is off:::
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::Sees Swiss:: Ensign!
Head down to the security office and
assemble a security crew, just in case
and away mission is needed
CSciAxelalexa: There was sufficent evidence
that Mortus Pices is quite poisonous.
Lt Allen Zinthys: an*
ensignjerryswiss: aye sir
CmdrBrookeDolan: +Ruder+ I see you're
keeping right on top of things. But I don't
know if we want to bring an unknown
substance onboard just yet.
CSciAxelalexa: From the scans I put this guy
ensignjerryswiss: :: grabs a few of
redshirts and heads for eng::
RAdm AC Zuriyev: <<Mortus Pices? Dead
TKirr: ::hestitantly:: The... lids are
vertical, as normal, but the curvature of
the surface is convex to an unusual
LtJG Taryn: Sir I can't get a response from
the ship sir
Lt Allen Zinthys: <<Apparently so>>
EnsignRuder: +Bridge+ In addition, if they
send an away team, I think that I should take
a team of engineers into Engineerings, see
what propulsio n they have. Or if they have any
CmdrBrookeDolan: They're probably dead,
CSciAxelalexa: <<::Grins:: Yes. I mean
RAdm AC Zuriyev: We need to access

anything from space::
CounselorTempest: I sense no great

dressed like king arthur::
TKirr: <<lol temp>>
CSciAxelalexa: ::nods encouragingly::
RAdm AC Zuriyev: And if he can not get
a response from their computer, then
it is offline...
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Meaning we need to
go over there.
CounselorTempest: <<::looks innocent::
CmdrBrookeDolan: +Ruder+ Stand by.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Taryn, is there an
atmosphere anywhere on the ship?
TKirr: ::looks down at CSci questioningly,
feeling uncomfortably too tall::
ensignjerryswiss: :: assembles 5 redshirts
plus himself and gets everyone ready for
an away moission
LtJG Taryn: ::turns to the Admiral::Yes sir on
EnsignRuder: +Bridge+ Aye sir.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: But no power... we
need at the bridge.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Taryn, take us to a
distance of ten kilometers and go to all
CmdrBrookeDolan: Admiral, do we maybe
want to get a little more information about what
happened to the Valiant before we send out
people over there?
CmdrBrookeDolan: Hate to sound like a
Vulcan, but ...
LtJG Taryn: ::nods::Aye sir
LtJG Taryn: ::moves teh ship::
RAdm AC Zuriyev: That will be easiest
with their sensor logs.
Cdr Sullivan: :::waves Solitaire out of her
office and remains glued to the console,
watching as things unfold:::
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Still. Get a sample of
that goo to science.
CounselorTempest: But it looks
CounselorTempest: ::returns to
ensignjerryswiss: :: paces back and forth
in the security offce hoping nothing bad
CSciAxelalexa: ::looks up at her:: So, what
do you make of it?
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::shakes her head:: It
looks evil, Sir.
LtJG Taryn: Sir, how about sending a team
over with Enviro-suits.
TKirr: <<where did goo come from?
CmdrBrookeDolan: <<it's on the Valiant>>
TKirr: <<The hull?>>
RAdm AC Zuriyev: How does goo look
EnsignRuder: Johnson! P'Tel, Kephart,
Potter, Logan! Prepare for an Engineering
Away Mission, it hasn't been approved, but we
best be ready.
CounselorTempest: It... looks... malign.
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::blink::
TKirr: ::turns back to the specimen,
CmdrBrookeDolan: It just looks like ... it
was the product of something bad. I know it
sounds absurd, but I don't think we should
expose our crew to it without knowing
exactly what it is.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Then knowing our
science department, they will have a
field day with it.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: That is what
containment fields are for,
CmdrBrookeDolan: And Tempest agrees
with me! ... Tempest agrees with me?
ensignjerryswiss: :: picks up a padd with
information about king arthur on it::
Lt Allen Zinthys: <<LoL>>
EnsignRuder: All Engineers> ::nods and
scampers around gathering equipment::
CounselorTempest: Yes, Brooke.
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::turns to the counselor
for support, as if to say, "You deal with him
CSciAxelalexa: It's okay if you're not sure, I
know you weren't here for the capturing.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: I want a sample of
that substance in Science. Get on it,
considers commenting that Brooke is
the one who had the problem, but
doesn't, talks to the Admiral as well::
TKirr: Perhaps it is a mutation. I would
hypothesize the curvature is some sort of
adaptation to the brighter sun.
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::drops her head slightly
to cover a sigh:: Aye, sir.
CounselorTempest: Admiral, maybe we
should analyze it remotely?
CounselorTempest: Doesn't science have
the capacity to do that?
RAdm AC Zuriyev: The order is given.
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::mutters, diva-like:: I
can't work like this!
Cdr Sullivan: :::taps a message to Zinthys:::
*What the HELL is that??*
CSciAxelalexa: ::nods:: Ah, exactly. They
came from a band closer to the planet's
LtJG Taryn: What about sending a team over
sir to get power restored?
CounselorTempest: Yes, Admiral.
CmdrBrookeDolan: +Axe+ Dolan to
TKirr: ::nods in response:: Then it is most
CounselorTempest: Permission to help
go over the logs when they are
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::Types back:: goo...
the Commander thinks it is evil
RAdm AC Zuriyev: I am no engineer,
Taryn, but I doubt power will ever be
restored to that hulk.
CounselorTempest: As ship's psychiatrist.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Each department will
be analyzing the logs from a different
Cdr Sullivan: ::types back::: *Evil goo? Like
EnsignRuder: +Bridge+ Ruder to the Bridge.
CmdrBrookeDolan: +Axe+ I have something
really special for you to do.
CSciAxelalexa: ::nods:: Yes, you'll make a
fine addition to the crew.
TKirr: ::looks at CSci as he is badged::
CSciAxelalexa: +Dolan+ I know nothing
about Bullet Proof Bob or where his spleen
might be. Honest.
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::RE:: If you want to
be alliterative about it
CSciAxelalexa: ::Said in a totally deadpan
Lt Allen Zinthys: <<LOL!>>
TKirr: ::seems to respond little to CSci's
CmdrBrookeDolan: +Axe+ Que?
ensignjerryswiss: :: doesn't lik the look of
the goo and has a bad feeling about it
CmdrBrookeDolan: +Axe+ Would you
come to the bridge, please? Bring an
assistant or two.
CounselorTempest: ::moves toward
Brooke's side surreptitiously, and says
to her in a half-whisper::
RAdm AC Zuriyev: ::stares at the listing
ship on the screen::
CmdrBrookeDolan: +Axe+ I'll explain when
you get up here. Dolan out.
CounselorTempest: What are you feeling
here? What do you think's going on?
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Zinthys, get a tractor
beam on that ship and stabilize its
CSciAxelalexa: ::looks over to TKirr:: Looks
like we're going up to the bridge.
TKirr: ::nods and follows Axe::
Lt Allen Zinthys: Aye, sir ::Tractor
beam lances out at the Valiant::
CSciAxelalexa: Computer, replace specimen
and reset holodeck.
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::whispers:: This is crazy,
I know, but I just feel ... it feels ... wrong.
CSciAxelalexa: ::Heads off to the bridge.
ensignjerryswiss: +counsler+ can you
come to the security office i need to
talk to you
CounselorTempest: ::nods to Brooke::
Cdr Sullivan: :::chuckles despite herself and
begins ripping through the database for any
mention of the word *goo*::::
CmdrBrookeDolan: I think the Admiral is
being too impulsive, and almost reckless
here. I can't talk to him, he never listens to a
thing I say.
CounselorTempest: This is... random,
but is that a new necklace?
EnsignRuder: ::looks at a console and smiles::
CounselorTempest: It looks like... a
white stallion charm?
EnsignRuder: +Bridge+ Ruder to the Bridge.
CounselorTempest: Russian art?
touches the figure hanging on her neck:: Oh
CounselorTempest: I could have sworn I
saw one like it ...
CounselorTempest: It's so familiar.
CmdrBrookeDolan: You know, I found it in
a box of things in my quarters. I think
someone gave it to me a long time ago, but I
can't remember who, or when.
CounselorTempest: I remember now...
in the collection of his mother's things
- Alexi's mother's things. Where did
you get it? So startling to see two so
CmdrBrookeDolan: I don't even know what
it is, but it seems ... familiar ... to me too.
CSciAxelalexa: ::arrives on the bridge::
CounselorTempest: ..and this is wrong?
EnsignRuder: +Zinthys+ Power can be
restored, would be limited to bridge power,
and engineering if we are lucky. We would
have to reroute power from the Atlantis.
Extend the shields around it, but we would get
a better idea of what is going on.
TKirr: ::steps onto the bridge after Axe,
EnsignRuder: +Zinthys+ With the Admiral's
permission of course.
EnsignRuder: <<I thought Vulcans didn't get
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::Sees Tempest and
Dolan getting along, listens to Ruder::
ensignjerryswiss: :: looks on the monitor
on the desk and thinks to himeself that
reminds me of slime and slimer""
CmdrBrookeDolan: Honestly, I can't recall.
But having it on is somewhat ... I don't know ...
comforting, I guess. I couldn't say why. But
since I've worn it, I just feel ... I don't know,
different sometimes. I know, it's silly.
Lt Allen Zinthys: Admiral, Ruder wants
to extend the shields over to the
Atlantis so we can route power to it.
CounselorTempest: We all need things
RAdm AC Zuriyev: It is possible to
restore power to the Valiant?
Lt Allen Zinthys: I advise against it at
current, since we don't know what that
CmdrBrookeDolan: Familiar ... wrong ... I
seem to be using words without really
understanding why ...
CounselorTempest: My candles are like
that. And the porcelain wolf. You know
what I mean.
