(21:22:14) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CSO/NAV: Commanders, would you pair both care to return to the site?
(21:22:19) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::finishes replicating the last of the synaptic stimulators and passes the case of them off to one of the Engineering team heading down to the planet:: aENG: They're blank, but there's an interface loader in there. See whatcha can do with it. ::with that done, he steps away and heads for a TL and eventually the bridge::
(21:22:20) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks at the device in her hand and makes a decision, sanding up and approaching the Engineering station. :: ENG: Lieutenant, would you happen to have a position open on the away team? I'd like an opporunity to do some more concentrated data gathering and try out this little thing Dr. Dremel proposed.
(21:22:42) NAV_Cdr_Harper: ENG: Gladly, Lieutenant.
(21:23:21) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: gets a comm from Wolfe that she's up for security detail on the AT and makes her way to the closest TR ::
(21:23:54) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CSO/NAV: Excellent.
(21:24:06) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO/XO: Admiral? Captain?
(21:24:52) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: perks up :: ENG: I do want to get a crack at using that computer, but if you're attempting to back it up, this may not be the right time.
(21:26:32) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: From what I could tell, there are probably more tunnels to explore...
(21:27:04) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::steps out of the Turbolift and meanders over to his customary spot at the railing behind the command circle::
(21:27:37) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ENG: Perhaps another time. But I will get down there when you're done.
(21:29:27) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CMO: Ah, doctor, anything new?
(21:29:48) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: secures her station, not bothering to find a replacement since they're orbiting, and stands ::

(21:30:41) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Nods.:: CMO: Ah doctor, would you care to return to the cavern? Or would you prefer Mr Slade join us?
(21:31:22) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::gives both the CO and XO a polite nod and a smile before turning to address Ilaihr:: ENG: Tyler would be eager I'm sure. You won't get me back in that cave for a lovely teapot, I'm afraid.
(21:31:25) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: checks all her gear once in the TR, making sure her full marine suit is fitting properly, and transports down with three others to relieve the current team and wait for Engineering to show up ::
(21:32:57) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CMO: As you wish doctor. Subsequently I have several. ::Nods to Kymar, and turns for the TL.:: CSO/NAV: After you.
(21:33:43) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: returns to her station to secure it, momentarily distracted by T'Lira's report submission - opens it and looks it over ::
(21:33:56) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::with the crisis averted, he turns back to the Admiral:: CO: I've issued the Engineering team with synaptic stimulators, so that they can help devise some sort of interface.
(21:34:15) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: waits on Lexy ::
(21:34:33) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CMO: Ah, excellent. Looking forward to trying it out.
(21:35:32) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: sends back an acknowledgment and files it to read later, not wanting to keep everyone waiting, and walks briskly to catch up ::

(21:36:45) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: receives the acknowledgement and inputs another idea for a transporter modification. When did this project go from emergency transporter usage to everyday usage modifications? ::
(21:37:05) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::chuckles quietly:: CO: It's an interesting sensation, I'll say that.
(21:37:07) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: since she's not on the commbadge, directs the TL to the TR ::
(21:37:47) MED_Ens_DrSlade: *ENG* Slade here, how may I help you Lieutenant?
(21:38:39) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: *MED*: You have been volunteered to rejoin us on the planet Doctor.
(21:39:43) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: materializes in the cave where pattern enhancers have been set up, nods to the security team which then beams up, and takes a look around ::
(21:40:39) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: *MED*: There is much fun to be had!

(21:41:10) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ::Snickers:: *ENG* I take it that Dr. Kymar is not much for caving. I will meet you in the transporter room.
(21:41:12) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: steps out of the TL when it arrives ::
(21:42:27) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: walks in step with Kate, flipping the disc in her palm :: NAV: I wonder if this thing will be a viable option?
(21:43:00) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Keeps trotting along behind Harper and Wright.:: *MED*: Indeed not. Ilaihr out.
(21:43:31) NAV_Cdr_Harper: CSO: Well, it is hard to imagine another way to get such an intensely realistic experience, so I hope so.

(21:44:28) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: enters the TR and grabs a science tricorder from the locker ::
(21:45:02) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: NAV: I remain hopeful that even after backing the data, that it can be repaired.
(21:46:00) NAV_Cdr_Harper: ENG: Its loss would certainly be tragic, all of that history.

(21:50:12) XO_Capt_TKirr: SEC_#2> AT: Yeah, and exactly what would you smell? It's a cave.
(21:50:35) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> The away team beams down to the cavern without issue.
(21:51:12) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: doesn't have to answer the details of her olfactory system as the beam-down sufficiently distracts the security team ::
(21:52:29) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: All: Ah excellent! We didn't materialise in bedrock. Modern transporter technology marvels me.... It's time to get to work.
(21:53:33) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: nods to Ilaihr, Harper and Wright ::
(21:53:44) NAV_Cdr_Harper: SEC: Kuari, hello. :: smiles ::
(21:54:40) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SEC: Good day Lieutenant. ::Smiles, as he old man scampers off to the device.::
(21:56:54) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Flips open the tricorder:: All: I feel a bit rocky, maybe a little stiff as it were ::Shicker::
(21:57:56) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: notes Slade as the group breaks up and goes its separate ways :: MED: Oh, hello, Doctor.
(21:58:25) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: almost reverently approaches the device, wanting more knowledge from it ::
(21:58:45) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CMO: Not anxious to get back down there, Doc?
(21:59:02) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: NAV: It is most intriguing...
(21:59:08) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SEC: Lieutenant Kuari i couldnt imagine a better member of this away team our very own dragon
(21:59:42) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: walks around the device appraisingly, harboring a silly hope that there's a cleverly hidden I/O port ::
(22:00:04) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: gets a bit greener in her suit and attempts to puff up her chest a bit :: MED: Thanks, I do my best to guard you well.
(22:00:09) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::shakes his head, supressing a shudder:: CO: I'm not one for being underground. Give me sunshine and rolling meadows any day of the week.
(22:02:20) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CMO: Not very much of that in space, you know.
(22:03:00) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Begins scanning the device, compulsively, just in case there was something new or missed.::
(22:03:06) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: steps onto the Bridge and to the main Tactical station. ::
(22:04:37) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SEC: You protect us quite well. :: Still scanning for anything new on tricorder::
(22:04:55) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: notices everyone's fascination with the center pedestal and watches for a moment ::
(22:06:34) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: tables the transporter project for now and opens up a blank file. It is supposed to be a scientific paper, but observing oneself is proving harder than expected ::
(22:06:41) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: Hmm. All: There appears to be a collection of wires feeding into the device from below. Perhaps a power source?
(22:06:41) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::the corner of his lips quirk upwards with a grin:: CO: There's sunlight, at least most of the places we go. And space enough for anyone.
(22:07:09) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CMO: Well, you've the space part right, at least.
(22:07:16) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CTO: Major.
(22:07:28) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: leans down to peer at the wires with Ilaihr ::
(22:07:30) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: directs SEC #2 & 3 to guard the entrance up the tunnel and keep a scan of seismic activity while she gets a closer look at what the others are doing ::
(22:07:38) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: nods :: CO: Admiral.
(22:07:39) NAV_Cdr_Harper: ENG: It must be. Perhaps there is an access panel?
(22:09:17) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Scans the room for any hidden passages, or deception fields concealing a route to a lower floor.::
(22:10:25) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: pulls out her scanner to attempt to detect the materials in the cables and trace them ::
(22:10:27) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: scans all areas around the ship and planet and, seeing that there are no threats nearby, deems it a safe time to run a level 2 diagnostic on the phasers. ::
(22:11:14) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Starts rounding the room, smoothing the walls as he goes.::
(22:11:44) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: watches Illaihr and follows after him ::
(22:11:58) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: Aha!
(22:12:03) MED_Ens_DrSlade: All: Still not reading any new life forms::
(22:12:21) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: looks at the Aha with interest ::
(22:12:29) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CSO: There is a small panel opening, just beside the pedestal...
(22:14:53) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CSO: It should be very well concelead. :: Approaches the position, running his fingers along the floor.::
(22:16:00) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: kneels down and begins to help search where Ilaihr indicated, feeling the floor ::
(22:16:27) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Scanning the floor::
(22:16:35) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: Oh this takes me back.
(22:17:21) NAV_Cdr_Harper: ENG: Here, I think I found an edge. The fit is impressive.
(22:18:23) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: stands by and watches, resisting the urge to search with them and get in the way ::
(22:18:40) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Places his hands near Harper's, and begins tracing the along the edge.:: NAV: Good craftsmanship.
(22:19:05) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ENG: What am i looking for?
(22:19:10) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: NAV: They dont make 'em like they used to. ::Chuckles.::
(22:19:52) NAV_Cdr_Harper: ENG: Quite. :: traces the opposite direction with her fingertips. ::
(22:21:49) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Rummages in his kit, pulling what looks like a tool at first, but is just a very flat and narrow slat of metal, and begins slowly trying to pry the panel open.::
(22:22:33) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CSO: Do we know the type of energy this device is running on? MED: And is it dangerous to humanoid life?
(22:24:44) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ENG: I do not read any dangerous humanoid life forms
(22:24:58) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Ilaihr pries against a hidden switch, which causes the panel to sink, then slide away to the side.
(22:26:13) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ENG: Nor do I read anything that is dangerous to us at the moment
(22:26:38) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: NAV: Ah. That was more elegant than I was expecting.
(22:27:12) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: MED: Excellent. ::Eyes up the small hole in the floor.::
(22:27:17) NAV_Cdr_Harper: ENG: Information Technology spans the ages, it would seem.
(22:29:59) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Smiles at Harper.:: NAV: The acquisition of knowledge is the noblest path, and one worth preserving.
(22:30:34) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: All: So who would like to enter the mysterious hole in the floor that leads to... something? ::Chuckles.::
(22:30:57) SEC_Lt_Kuari: ENG: Can I ... fit?
(22:30:59) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ENG: It's electrical power, but... I can't tell you what the source is. Nothing within scanner range is generating it.
(22:31:18) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: judges her bulk, added to by her suit ::
(22:33:06) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: eyes the hole :: ENG: It does not look large enough to crawl through, at least easily.
(22:33:29) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: idly wonders if Andorians are more flexible than she gave them credit for ::
(22:33:36) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SEC: It will be a tight squeeze for just about anyone.
(22:33:41) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Both: Maybe we could send a bot with a camera.
(22:35:07) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: NAV: Its like Betty. ::Raises his eyebrow; identifying more with his Aenar heritage.::
(22:36:52) NAV_Cdr_Harper: ENG: Betty? Your ship was full of tiny access points?
(22:37:09) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: NAV: There were lots of wires....

(22:38:02) MED_Ens_DrSlade left the room (quit: Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
(22:38:39) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CSO: I would happily go down there myself commander. ::Smiles.:: And only the corridors. And engineering.
(22:38:41) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: had added some notes to this blank document, but they seem quite trivial. Clearly, more thought needs to be put into this and not the transporter project ::
(22:39:12) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CSO: I made certain the bridge was pleasant.
(22:39:40) NAV_Cdr_Harper: CSO: A bot does seem like a good idea.
(22:40:39) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: NAV: Then I shall bow to your wisdom. Although, someone may still need to go down there at some point.
