(21:14:13) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Sits in Sickbay, small as it is, and completes the final part of his required report on physical examinations::
(21:14:14) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: SCENE> As the Aquarius warps toward Mutara, sector forbidden, without permits many or money more, all seems quiet in the once controversial area of space...

(21:15:59) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Reminiscences about how this feels like a smuggling run, and is working on a suitably stealthy course.::
(21:16:03) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Sits at his station, monitoring heat buildup, and comparing against their position and estimated ETA. ::
(21:16:09) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: on the bridge, not bothering with the tiny ready room right now ::
(21:16:37) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: stands near the door on the Bridge ::
(21:16:41) LCdr_Wolfe: :: sees the crewmember at Ops get up and walk off the bridge, and realizes it's his position to take, and takes it without a word. ::
(21:16:51) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: guides the stealthy little ship along her prescribed path ::
(21:17:25) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Stealth or not, I feel exposed in this little thing. You get used to a Sovereign.
(21:17:59) TAC_Cadet_Randen: :: Monitoring the tactical sensors when his console beeps. He sees the issue it's fussing about. :: CO: Admiral, I'm reading a Ferengi vessel in the Mutara Sector.
(21:18:13) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: TAC: ... you're shitting me.
(21:18:17) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: sits close to center on the Bridge, busily reading her console, and looks up :: CO: Agreed. We must think on how much more difficult we are to see being this small.
(21:18:20) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Finishes the report lays it on the CMO station and quickly inventories the small sickbay before getting quite bored::
(21:18:40) TAC_Cadet_Randen: CO: I am not... shitting you, Sir.
(21:19:10) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: They're always there when you don't want them.
(21:19:12) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: TAC/OPS: Passive scans.
(21:19:32) TAC_Cadet_Randen: :: Performs a passive scan. ::
(21:19:41) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Do you want to reduce speed or alter course, Sir?
(21:19:41) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: All: Find out what the hell they're doing without betraying our presence. We certainly don't want them to know we have this level of tech.

(21:21:03) TAC_Cadet_Randen: CO: It appears they're looking for something. They seem to be following a search pattern.
(21:21:05) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: First assumption should be; something illegal,sir.
(21:21:32) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ENG: That was my first, second, and third assumptions.
(21:21:43) LCdr_Wolfe: CO: It seems they're scanning heavily, sir. They're sucking in particles.
(21:22:07) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Take us out of warp a healthy distance away when we arrive.
(21:22:57) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: I recommend that and a shade extra, sir. We're gonna want to do a heat dump before we commit to any extended stealth tailing.
(21:23:18) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Aye, Sir. :: eyeballs the location of the Ferengi vessel and where they are projected to drop out of warp and makes some minor adjustments ::
(21:23:20) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CEO: Good call. NAV: Back off even farther than you originally planned to.
(21:24:13) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Aye. :: runs additional calculations and makes further adjustments ::
(21:25:02) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Bridge: Particles... they must be trying to find remnants of the - what happened here.
(21:26:03) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: makes her way to Sickbay, attempting to stave off a rather persistent headache that even focusing away from the pain doesn't seem to ease ::
(21:26:16) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: That... would be bad.
(21:26:34) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Bridge: We need a way to discourage them without revealing our presence.
(21:26:54) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: Bridge: Whatever they are doing, you can be sure they think there is some potential for profit in it.
(21:27:02) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: And worth millions of bars of latinum on the black market.
(21:28:30) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: Bridge: Would evidence of the presence of any other vessel be enough to make them run? Is it not forbidden for them to be here?
(21:29:00) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Exceedingly so, but this vessel would likely not intimidate them.
(21:29:21) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: Give me a few minutes, and I could probably mock up a slightly more threatening sensor ghost.
(21:29:29) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: steps into the Sickbay and looks around, wondering where the actual Sickbay is ::
(21:29:30) LCdr_Wolfe: ::under breath :: self: Their mistake.
(21:29:31) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CEO: Make it... Romulan.
(21:30:05) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: We could create some a sensor echo of something a bit intimidating... like a D'deridex...
(21:30:56) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Hears the doors open and a vision of beauty walks through the door:: SCI: T'Lira darling what do I owe this surprise
(21:31:10) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: prepares to drop out of warp as they approach the Mutara sector ::
(21:31:23) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: Can do. Though I DO need to warn you, that WILL involve emissions from this ship. If we can position ourselves within their impulse wake, then between that and how focused they are on finfinf...whatever, that should hide us.
(21:31:32) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: I seem to have a persistent headache that rather rudely refuses to leave.
(21:32:22) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Looks at her inquisitively, knowing that she would never let a headache bother her. Picks up a tricorder and does a scan::
(21:32:46) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CEO: It's the oldest trick... yet it still works even after all these centuries of starflight.
(21:33:29) CEO_LtQuinn: ENG: Well...being able to get that close without getting blasted in the first place does help a LITTLE.
(21:33:46) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: SCENE> The Mutara sector notably contains a ring of debris that was the remains of Regula following its destruction, along with a few other planets that are less notable, including a "hot Jupiter" gas giant close to the star.
(21:34:43) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CEO: Understood. I think we'll spook them, and if not, we'll take out their engines quickly.
(21:35:08) CEO_LtQuinn: ::Nods:: CO: Understood. Anyway, now or never. Permission to initiate heat dump, sir?
(21:35:15) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: arriving at their destination, she drops the ship out of warp a conservatively safe distance from the Ferengi ship ::
(21:35:21) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: TAC: Alter the transponder signal of this ship as well. Give us a Romulan flag to match.
(21:35:26) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CEO: Do it.
(21:35:46) LCdr_Wolfe: CO: Sir, it is difficult to tell what the Ferengi are trying to find. When I say they are sucking in particles, I mean all particles around them.
(21:36:09) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Ops: I know what they're after. It's just classified.
(21:36:20) LCdr_Wolfe: CO: Yes, sir.
(21:36:30) TAC_Cadet_Randen: CO: Aye Sir. :: Types the commands into his console, altering their transponder signal to match Romulan. ::
(21:36:31) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Looks intently at the tricorder:: SCI: Other than the headache have you noticed any other symptoms, even subtle ones?
(21:36:37) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CEO: To really pull it off, we have to remember false readings of a quantum singularity.
(21:37:04) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: lifts eyebrow :: MED: Such as what?
(21:37:20) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: hears "classified" and wonders if she should be briefed ::
(21:37:55) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Any nausea, abdominal cramping, mood swings?
(21:38:11) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Releases the combined heat output of the ship and its crew over the course of the last 24 hours, stored in specially concealed sinks and approaching its storage limit. That swiftly evacuates in the form of a large heat signature to aft. ::
(21:38:40) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: knows that T'Kirr is now cleared for this knowledge, but likely has not had a chance to brief herself on all that she's now cleared for ::
(21:38:51) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: thinks to her :: ~T'Kirr~ Look up Project Genesis.
(21:39:18) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: thinks really hard about this as well as trying to wonder where this is going :: MED: I... have noticed a slight aversion to foods that I usually partake in, as well as some unexpected mood changes. Why?
(21:39:59) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: Venting underway.
(21:40:39) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: takes note and sends him a "message received" ::
(21:41:09) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CEO: Understood.
(21:41:24) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: I need you to plot a course to put us right in their impulse wake.
(21:42:43) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Aye, Sir. :: was already working on this at her console ::
(21:43:25) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Lay down on the bio bed for a moment, i just want to check one more thing
(21:44:01) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: Okay! Venting complete, sealing off heat sinks. We're a ghost again.
(21:44:08) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: more than a little confused, but complies, resting on the bed and staring at the ceiling, which is very dull ::
(21:44:30) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CEO: Excellent. Now, make us look large and Romulan.
(21:45:50) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Take us right up to their tailpipe.
(21:45:55) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Initiates the scan and gets the same conclusion as the first, disengages the bio bed and allows her to sit up. Grabs a hypospray:: SCI: This is a mild analgesic it will help with the headache, and I know why you have been feeling that way. You have a sort of parasite.
(21:46:05) LCdr_Wolfe: :: scans the Ferengi closely now, to see how they react and that they notice the correct ship ::
(21:46:11) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: Yes, sir. Calling up their warp signature from sensor archives, duplicating it...how fast do we want them coming in? Warp 7? Romulan warbirds are a touch slow.
(21:46:29) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: plots a course to swing wide, avoiding any close approaches to the Ferengi vessel until safely inserted into their impulse wake, approaching them from the rear. :: CO: How close do you want to get, Sir?
(21:46:30) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CEO: Warp five. More time to panic.
(21:46:31) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: A parasite? What sort of parasite?
(21:46:55) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Twenty kilometers.
(21:47:11) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Aye, Sir. Course laid in.
(21:47:29) CEO_LtQuinn: ::Nods.:: Warp 5 it is.
(21:47:46) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Engage.
(21:47:49) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: I wish I could see their faces when we do this.
(21:48:23) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Well if I am correct in thinking that I am the only male you have been with recently, I would say it is a human/vulcan parasite. Also known as an embryo> :: Pulls the scan up on to the screen sho she can see it::
(21:48:26) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: Begins navigating the course she has programmed, closely watching the Ferengi for any sign that they've been spotted. ::
(21:49:02) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: stops and stares for a moment, not quite able to form coherent words at the current time ::
(21:49:11) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: This should almost be as fun as stealing their money.
(21:49:19) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> The Aquarius slips in behind the Ferengi vessel, which continues its scanning pattern, making no indication that they've noticed us.
(21:49:35) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: leans forward in his chair, trying not to grin ::
(21:50:15) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: delicately completes the insertion of the svelte vessel into their impulse wake, 20 kilometers out :: CO: We are in position.
(21:50:25) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: Aaaaaand, that should do it. Incoming Romulan TASK FORCE, at your word, sir.
(21:50:44) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Excellent flying, lieutenant. CEO: Make it happen. Oh, and a whole task force, that's a nice touch.
(21:52:34) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Grins and feeds his parameters into the main deflector, which then recalibrates to emit an energy signature that matches the look of big, big trouble incoming on sensors. ::
(21:53:12) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> The Ferengi ship STOPS.
(21:53:39) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: brings Aquarius to a full stop ::
(21:54:12) TAC_Cadet_Randen: CO: The Ferengi stopped.
(21:54:17) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Are you going to say anything? Because i dont know if you are happy or sad or mad about this situation :: Slightly apprehensive about speaking as she stares at the screen::
(21:54:44) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: finally manages to form words :: MED: I do not believe how is a viable question at this point, rather, what now? :: hopes like hell that didn't come out sounding as flat as she thought it did ::
(21:54:45) LCdr_Wolfe: CO: Sir, the Ferengi may be on to us. They are scanning... wildly. But there is a lot of space they're missing in their scans.
(21:54:54) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: opens his mouth to order an all stop but Suzuki already did that ::
(21:55:30) TAC_Cadet_Randen: CO: They are scanning like crazy...
(21:55:46) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: internally winces, thinking perhaps she should have waited for orders to stop ::
(21:56:15) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Well i believe it is appoximately an 11 month gestation and then a very very messy birth, if i remember correctly>
(21:56:15) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Bridge: They're just panicing.
(21:57:08) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: I do recall the health education classes that my parents felt necessary to go over several times. I should rephrase. What do we do now?
(21:57:15) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: And if they were susceptible to telepathy, we could enjoy sensing their angst.
(21:57:59) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> The Ferengi ship, apparently not wanting to be around to find out what the "Romulans" want, bolts into warp.
(21:59:01) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Ummm Wait...., prepare for a little one. Tell Captain T'Kirr and Admiral Blackthorne. I am not asking you to marry me because you are having my child that is cliche and would only make you think that was why I asked. If that was your fear
(21:59:15) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: holds position, waiting for orders ::
(21:59:31) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: Looks like it worked. Want me to try and broadcast a pursuit?
(21:59:40) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: No. I merely wished to know how you felt about this. It would be illogical to make any choices at all by myself, as this was a two part effort.
(22:00:02) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Is laughing hysterically at how quickly they pegged it.::
(22:00:03) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CEO: Yeah, see what you can do.
(22:00:08) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: tries very hard not to laugh ::
(22:00:51) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: I feel rather excited actually. We are gonna have a baby, and if I know him like I think I do. A very happy soon to be big brother.
(22:01:18) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: This is...testing, correct?
(22:01:23) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: Yes, sir. They'll be out of range soon, but give me free reign to power up the main deflector, and I should be able to keep them honest for a few minutes.
(22:01:29) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: I mean...relatively.
(22:01:47) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CEO: Go ahead.
(22:01:51) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: What do you mean?
(22:02:02) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: Taril will indeed be excited. I must remind Shari to have a glass of warm milk on hand for when that particular comm call is made. He will likely... "bounce off the walls", though I do not see how such a thing is possible.
(22:02:19) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: There is a purpose to...interacting with this Ferengi vessel.
(22:02:34) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Why wouldnt it be?
(22:02:35) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: For this mission.
(22:02:51) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: The purpose was to get them away from what they might find here. This was totally unexpected.
(22:03:07) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: Walls are not made of materials that can be suitably bounced off of. To do so with the standard materials would be quite painful.
(22:04:21) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: HAHAHAHAHA Oh, that is not what I thought you meant. That is a very old expression. I am sure he will be quite thrilled
(22:04:24) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Grins, and begins ampling up power to their broadcast to compensate for the widening range. ::
(22:04:58) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: Mm hm. :: is quite aware of his amusement ::
(22:05:05) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: tilts her head slightly to the side :: MED: Of that, I am quite certain.
(22:05:35) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: And unfortunate that I'm going to have to tell Alexi that we found Ferengi in the Mutara sector of all places. Anyway...
(22:06:09) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: This has been a gift, sir. I thought my life would end before getting the chance to get one over some Ferengin again.
(22:06:23) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Slides a hand onto her stomach:: SCI: Looks like we have something to look forward to.
(22:06:41) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ENG: Might as well have a little fun if we can. Now...
(22:06:42) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: I certainly agree.
(22:06:50) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Bridge: Our next move.
(22:07:55) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Bridge: I doubt anyone would expect us to be coming from here, at least, but we need another good avenue to approach the Sol system.
(22:08:33) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: TAC: And keep that Romulan transponder. It might be helpful.
(22:08:45) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: There are a number of routes to Sol, it's just a case of finding the right one.
(22:09:13) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: Not many people can get to Sol undetected.
(22:10:01) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ENG: Not many people can get to Earth undetected, you mean.
(22:11:48) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: You'd be surprised how hard it is just to get to the edge of the system. There's patrol, sensor nets, long range tachyon detectors, not to mention plain old nosey people.
(22:12:08) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: So when do you think we should inform the bosses?
(22:12:10) TAC_Cadet_Randen: CO: Yes Sir.
(22:12:42) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ENG: I am well aware of the defenses.
(22:12:57) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Bridge: I'm looking for unorthodox thinking here, folks.
(22:13:25) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: Perhaps when it would become a concern? As of right now, the mission does not seem dangerous enough to impact this pregnancy, so I would say to perhaps bring it up at another time?
(22:13:49) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: Could this ship hold up, hiding inside of a star?
(22:14:46) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ENG: Inside? Of course not. But close enough to play hell with sensors, I imagine yes.
(22:15:15) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Another time is understandable, but I have a duty to inform the Captain of your condition. I will wait as long as I can but you know it cant be kept for too long.
(22:16:36) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: I suppose it depends on the definition of being inside a star. A stellar corona would definitely be an ample place to avoid ships.
(22:16:37) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: Bridge: Perhaps it makes sense to hide amongst the traffic on commonly traveled routes.
(22:16:53) LCdr_Wolfe: :: thinking to self in booming voice :: Self: What about a nebula?
(22:16:53) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: I agree. Responsibilities and duty should not be neglected at any time
(22:17:52) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV/OPS: Both good ideas.
(22:18:11) LCdr_Wolfe: :: looks around, realizing his voice carries, a little startled at the response from the CO ::
(22:18:26) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: Bridge: Hiding in stars and asteroid belts and whatnot will certainly be beneficial from time to time, but it won't get us any closer to our end goal.
(22:18:49) LCdr_Wolfe: :: thinks another moment :: CO: The Orion Nebula... Sir, it is 1300 light years from Earth.
(22:19:12) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: OPS: And after that, is there another closer?
(22:19:58) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Well then perhaps you should get to your station. We do not want this to impede our duties
(22:19:59) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: glances at Wolfe as he speaks, but then stares off in contemplation ::
(22:20:08) LCdr_Wolfe: EDIT: Yes, sir. There is also the Helix... and Horsehead.
(22:20:29) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: Bridge: Hiding amongst the normal interstellar traffic makes the most sense to me. I doubt it would be the approach that they would expect of us.
(22:20:54) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Project a flight path hopping between those three nebulae, then right to the shipping lanes.
(22:20:56) LCdr_Wolfe: CO: Helix is 700 light years.
(22:21:30) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: I agree. I will see you later. :: as she gets up, on a last moment impulse, she turns and presses a quick kiss to his cheek before heading off, in a slightly better mood then she has been in a while ::
(22:21:32) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: begins plotting the hypothetical course ::
(22:22:04) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ::Smiles at the kiss and watchers her stride out the doors::
(22:22:13) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CEO: Given those flight times, can we get from nebula to nebula, dump emissions in them with time to spare?
(22:23:30) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: We could use transponder tags to... bug other ships with a faint and fake signature, resembling Aquarius's; only detectable by those looking for it.
(22:23:52) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: Um...well, it may get a little warm for awhile, but I think we should be able to make that happen, yes sir.
(22:23:53) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ENG: Not a bad idea. Inconvenient for them, but harmless.
(22:23:58) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: fortunately, the turbolift to the bridge is not far at all :: TL: Bridge.
(22:24:23) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ENG: Get to work on rigging those up.
(22:25:26) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: It's how I used to bring contraband over the Romulan border. ::Grins and gets to work on it.:: Self: This will be fun.
(22:26:02) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ENG: You know, you blab a lot about your illegal activities. A bit too much to be a believable criminal.
(22:26:04) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: steps onto the bridge and walks over to an auxiliary station, noting the conversation taking place at the moment. It appears rather interesting ::
(22:27:05) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: While we're here, catalog all the sensor readings you can grab along with the Ferengi activity and compile a classified report.
