(21:15:10) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @::clicks the buckles on his boots back and forth, then finally snaps them shut before checking his systems, bringing up the HUD and going through the startup process::
(21:15:24) CO_Capt_Harper: :: has returned to her seat and awaits news from the surface ::
(21:16:12) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: jogs out of the runabout Deschutes in her EVA suit towards the signal, one of her three security lackeys scanning as they go ::
(21:16:38) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: maintaining communication contact with the away team as their suits come online ::
(21:16:51) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: sits in the Deschutes' cockpit with Chaka, monitoring sensors from there as the medical team stands by behind them ::
(21:17:07) LtChaka: :: Leans back in the pilot's seat and grins. :: What do you know? I DO remember how to fly one of these things!
(21:17:29) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @::grabs his surgical kit and attached it to one of the rigs on his hip, then follows the rest of the away team out, checking on his medtechs as he goes, patting a few backs while the heating system whirrs away::
(21:19:05) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @::switches off the lights in his helmet and turns on the SIMs, looking around at the utter darkness around them, the rest of the Away Team cast in the eerie glows and flickering shadows of their own lights::
(21:19:50) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: stands at Tactical, awaiting - well, more than he had been before they found signs of life on this rogue planet. ::
(21:19:54) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Monitors scans from the planet, wondering where or how an outpost or ship is hiding.::
(21:20:29) SEC_Lt_Kuari: RedShirt1> SEC: The signal's directly ahead of us.
(21:21:07) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: stops, shining her helm beacons ahead and it catches on a small box ::
(21:21:28) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @::checks his tricorder, trying not to bounce on his toes too hard because of the low gravity, eager to find out the status of any stricken crew::
(21:22:14) SEC_Lt_Kuari: RedShirt1: Reading anything dangerous in that? Any signs of people nearby?
(21:22:53) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @Redshite/SEC: I'm picking up some lifesign readings, but it's difficult to get an exact fix. Somwhere over there ::points his beacon::
(21:23:14) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: tries something, is surprised when it works :: *Away Team* Away team, Atlantis Ops. I have successful transporter lock on all team members.
(21:24:24) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: leaves the box and moves to where Kymar's pointing...lives are more important at the moment ::
(21:24:52) LtChaka: CSO: Too late, Ops. Already on the clock down here. And I plan to bill for every minute.
(21:25:16) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: grins at Chaka :: *CSO* That's great news. Stand by.
(21:25:38) CO_Capt_Harper: :: looks over at the comm with some measure of surprise ::
(21:26:08) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Away Team* Contrast with how I am unable to lock onto the lifesigns you're seeing.
(21:27:05) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @SEC/RedShirt: That doesn't sound positive. Maybe you lot should take the lead? My hands are full? ::smiles behind the glass of his helmet as he follows along, eyes on his Tricorder::
(21:27:21) LtChaka: *XO* We could flip on the lights and try a fly over, Commander. If our guys are walking into a trap...
(21:28:47) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Did I hear that right, Commander? You have a lock on the away team but not the lifesigns?
(21:29:08) XO_Cdr_Vallero: Chaka: Yeah, that's why I sent security first. And...apparently our CMO. :: presses buttons :: All right, let's do it.
(21:29:28) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: turns to give Kate a single solemn nod :: CO: Correct.
(21:30:20) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: That is damned suspicious. Have they found anything at all?
(21:30:27) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *CO* Away Team to Atlantis. Chaka and I are going to do a flyover near the security team to see if we can get a better view on things.
(21:31:05) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Not so far. They're still trying to sort things out, it sounds like. Do I have your approval to pull them out at the first sign of trouble?
(21:31:37) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Yes, you absolutely do.
(21:31:56) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *SEC/CMO* Security team, this is the Deschutes. We're going to approach you to see if we can assist. Atlantis has got a transporter lock on you, but not the life signs. Watch yourselves.
(21:32:04) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Away Team* Be advised, I have orders to pull you out immediately if anything goes sideways.
(21:32:41) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @::triggers his comms system:: *XO*: Understood, Commander. No sign of anyone yet, so some more light would be good.
(21:32:45) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *CSO* Much appreciated. Stand by.
(21:33:34) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: peers into the darkness, assisted by her military-grade HUD ::
(21:34:39) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @::mutters, smacking his tricorder a few times:: SEC: Not getting any more than a vague 'thisaway' on my scans. Something isn't adding up.
(21:35:07) SEC_Lt_Kuari: @RedShirt1> SEC: There's...nothing, yeah. It's coming from where we were, that box.
(21:35:19) LtChaka: :: Nods and lifts off, his hands flying over the controls with a sure speed that belies his earlier joke. :: *XO* Be advised, if anyone takes a shot at us, I'll probably be able to bank us in time, but I can't promise a warning. Apologies in advance if it's a bumpy ride.
(21:35:22) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CSO: Are there any signs of holograms? Or indications it's a false signal?
(21:35:45) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: reverses course and leads the team back to the box ::
(21:36:01) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: is trying to figure out if there might be a form of field shielding the strange lifesigns from anything more than scanners ::
(21:36:20) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ENG: Hard to get lifesigns from a hologram, but you raise a good point...
(21:37:14) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Away Team* Away team, Engineering advises looking for any extraneous electrical signals or something else that may be artificially emitting positive lifesigns.
(21:37:17) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @::mutters something else about tricorders, following the Security team back:: Self: Box? I'm a doctor, not a carpenter.
(21:37:23) XO_Cdr_Vallero: ACTION> The Deschutes approaches and hovers over the box, washing the area with its robust beacons as the Security team and Kymar once again approach it.
(21:38:21) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The box is about one meter by a half meter by a half meter, and metal, with many access panels.
(21:39:04) SEC_Lt_Kuari: *CSO* Well, we found a metal box eminating the signal. Seeing if we can get closer, more detailed scans.
(21:39:09) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @::starts scanning the box instead, focusing on any possible biological contaminants, organic layering, doctory things::
(21:39:17) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: listens in ::
(21:39:57) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *SEC* Advise that you approach with extreme caution.
(21:40:24) SEC_Lt_Kuari: @*CSO* Understood.
(21:40:25) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: ah, so it seems to be a strange object. How... strangely typical. This could very likely be a trap, but she can't be sure. It seems too... perfectly set up ::
(21:40:48) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Feels like he jinxed it. Stupid old man paranoia.::
(21:41:22) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: is thinking much the same as T'Lira, unbeknownst to both of them ::
(21:41:37) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @::is thinking about food:
(21:41:43) SEC_Lt_Kuari: RedShirt1> :: focuses his tricorder on engineered threats ::
(21:42:47) XO_Cdr_Vallero: Chaka: Nice flying...hold it right there. Let's have a look. :: looks down at the team and spots the box in the runabout's lights ::
(21:43:09) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: while keeping an eye on the transporter locks, uses the away team's positions to triangulate the location of the object and perform a pinpoint scan, but is disappointed when it comes up with nothing new ::
(21:43:42) LtChaka: XO: Thank you. Holding. :: With their altitude stabilized, runs a quick scan of his own, banking that the runabout's sensors will likely be a little more powerful than a tricorder. If he fails to tell someone this is a shielded antimatter bomb, he'll feel quite the jackass. ::
(21:44:55) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @::activates the comms:: *XO*: Tricorder is telling me that there are four humanoid lifesigns inside the box. Which...isn't right, I don't think it's big enough.
(21:45:11) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: blinks ::
(21:45:20) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> All of the sensor readings that have been detected so far are emanating from the box. Attempts to scan inside it generate the same readings as before.
(21:45:25) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @::starts scanning the box itself, looking for some sort of assessment of it's capabilities, something like a transporter buffer::
(21:47:08) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: Perhaps our friends' attempt to ward off interlopers. Make the operation look bigger than it currently was.
(21:47:08) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Captain, the team seems to have traced all signals and lifesigns back to a metal box roughly the size of a small cargo barrel
(21:47:40) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: A decoy, then. To what end?
(21:47:48) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *CMO* Well, that can't be right, can it.
(21:48:46) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Well, it hasn't blown up in their faces, so maybe it's not weapons-equipped. Should we have them bring it back?
(21:49:01) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Is there any clue to who made it?
(21:49:04) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: is about 95% sure that something big or potentially dangerous is about to happen. The other 5% is convinced that this is just some strange coincidence, but that would be illogical. ::
(21:49:08) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @*XO*: I can't find any trace of stasis or transporter technology either. It's just a box...but I think we should make sure it's not booby-trapped and bring it back onboard the Atlantis for more penetrative testing.
(21:49:35) LtChaka: :: Frowns. :: XO: I know I'm just the driver on this one, Commander, but I don't think there's anything there we can doctor at. And we could shoot it from up here. It seems to me that now's the time to pull our people out of there.
(21:49:36) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Away Team* Is there any writing or other markings on the object?
(21:50:29) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: peers closely at the box for markings ::
(21:50:47) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The box is blank on the outside.
(21:51:01) SEC_Lt_Kuari: @ *CSO* Nope.
(21:51:23) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Away team reports no external markings.
(21:51:32) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *CSO* Are you able to get a lock on the object?
(21:53:48) CO_Capt_Harper: :: fights the urge to go look at Lexy's console, reminding herself that Captains aren't supposed to go wandering all over the place :
(21:53:50) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: tries with the exact physical coordinates, still fails :: *XO* Negative, Commander. Something about the object is disrupting transporter locks.
(21:54:44) LtChaka: ::Shrugs:: XO: I could try a tractor lock? Bring it up the long way.
(21:54:49) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *Bridge* Understood. Captain, with your permission, we will bring the object aboard and return it to Atlantis for more intensive study.
(21:54:50) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @::flicks off his comm badge and places it on top of the box:: *CSO/XO*: Do you have a lock on my signal right now, Commander?
(21:55:18) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: attempts to get a transporter lock on the box from the runabout ::
(21:57:09) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *CMO* Affirmative, Doctor, positive lock.
(21:58:24) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Wonders if they remove the device, how long it will be until that ship returns.::
(21:58:29) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @::nods, crouching down with the box and placing his hand on it:: *XO/CSO*: I'll stay close by. Recommend we switch the transport buffer scrubbers to full, anything biologically dangerous or that could be weaponised.
(21:58:46) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *Bridge/AT* I would rather have this thing transported behind a containment field than actually handling it.
(21:59:44) CO_Capt_Harper: *XO* Only if security determines that it is not a trap of some sort, Commander. Is there a way to open it?
(21:59:44) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @*XO*: Biolab four is still set up for extreme containment after those space bees, it'll work - and can be ejected into space if something happens.
(22:00:35) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Captain, Doctor Kymar wants me to attempt to beam him up with the object, with full transport buffer scrubbers and a contained target location in biolab 4.
(22:01:31) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: No, not yet. :: almost gets up to have a look for herself but stays in the center seat ::
(22:01:47) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *CO* We can attempt to open it here if that's what you prefer.
(22:02:36) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @::frowns slightly:: *XO*: And if it does contain some sort of stasis system, and opening it kills the four occupants? Is that a risk we should take?
(22:02:42) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: Perhaps we can construct a small bomb/device drone, captain.
(22:03:18) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *CMO* Captain Harper will keep that option in mind. For now, please keep your signal to yourself to allow for emergency extraction.
(22:03:47) CO_Capt_Harper: *XO* If possible, proceed.
(22:04:16) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @::glowers quietly:: *CSO*: Last time I checked, I was still Chief Physician. These are possible lives and I am responsible for them, Lieutenant Commander.
(22:04:44) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: well, that potentially dangerous or big thing hasn't happened yet, so that 95% sureity is down to about 90%. Meanwhile, her confusion is growing. ::
(22:05:14) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *CMO* I understand, Doctor, but my orders are to preserve YOUR lives and I intend to carry them out.
(22:05:25) SEC_Lt_Kuari: *CO* :: glances at Kymar, listening to the chatter, and picks up a foreleg she was standing on to poke a button :: Understood. I'm going to try.
(22:06:32) CO_Capt_Harper: CTO: Major, are you still detecting an entire ship down there?
(22:06:35) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @::growls under his breath and stands back up, snatching his comm badge:: All: I will not be party to murder a second time! ::turns and walks away, back to the shuttle::
(22:06:37) SEC_Lt_Kuari: @ :: hovers a gloved paw over the box's access panel ::
(22:07:00) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: watches their lifesigns carefully, fingers hovering over the transport button ::
(22:07:03) XO_Cdr_Vallero: Chaka: Land us.
(22:07:23) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: watches Kymar walk off, then pokes buttons ::
(22:07:23) LtChaka: :: Frowns softly, not wild about this idea, but for once, elects to keep his mouth shut. He's already offered his recommendation. ::
(22:07:36) LtChaka: XO: Beginning descent.
(22:07:56) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @::folds his arms across his chest, watching Kuari from a distance, his face a thundercloud::
(22:08:23) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: acting on a suspicion, sends what she's looking at to the Captain's console ::
(22:09:39) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> A panel sides away, revealing circuitry.
(22:10:08) CO_Capt_Harper: :: looks down at her chair arm's console and eagerly scans the readings ::
(22:10:45) SEC_Lt_Kuari: @ :: flinches backward, her ears twitching :: *Bridge* You seeing this?
(22:11:55) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Holds his breath, as he watches the viewscreen::
(22:12:26) LtChaka: :: Eases the runabout onto the local terrain with only a soft THUD, entry hatch faced toward the away team. ::
(22:12:44) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: accesses Kuari's helmet cam :: *SEC* Some kind of... electronics? Is that what you're seeing?
(22:13:21) SEC_Lt_Kuari: *Bridge* Yeah, inside the panel.
(22:14:23) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: @::growls bitterly:: Self: That's probably the life support systems, no big deal.
(22:14:47) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: I have a video feed from Kuari, Captain, if you'd like it on the main viewscreen?
(22:14:50) CO_Capt_Harper: :: glances toward the console but remains seated :: CSO: Put it up on the main, yes.
(22:15:01) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: does so ::
(22:15:21) CO_Capt_Harper: :: narrows her eyes at at the circuitry that's visible in the harsh lighting ::
(22:15:48) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Sits up in his seat, arching forward and leaning on his cane; eyeing up the device's workings.::
(22:15:56) CO_Capt_Harper: ENG: Is it just me or does that look Federation in nature?
(22:16:06) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: observes the view on the screen. How... odd. ::
(22:16:20) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *SEC* Stand by, Kuari.
(22:16:24) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: moves her head steadily to get a more three-dimensional view in the head-on lighting, a motion she naturally does having eyes on the side of her head ::
(22:18:07) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Fiddles his spectacles a moment, to double check.:: CO: I believe it is, ma'am.
(22:21:36) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Are there other access panels they can open?
(22:21:43) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: wonders at what she's hearing - Federation tech? ::
(22:22:26) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *SEC* Are there any other access panels or things that can be interacted with on the object?
(22:24:23) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: starts to move quicker, finding more access panels around it and attempts to repeat the opening process on them ::
(22:25:08) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> More panels open, revealing more Federation circuity - but also some Romulan and Klingon.
(22:25:50) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Self: Free Fleets?
(22:26:23) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Actually gets up for a closer look of the device, looking for something along it's pathways that stands out.::
(22:26:24) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: wonders how they managed to get all those different kinds of circuitry to work well together... and then that pessimistic side pops up with a rather odd notion, along the lines of a trap ::
(22:27:35) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Why would someone who was claiming this planet want to lure people down with a false distress signal? Is there any logical reason that ends well for us?
(22:27:48) SEC_Lt_Kuari: @ :: narrows her eyes suspiciously at the obviously mixed tech ::
(22:28:12) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: Hmmm... ::Can see his hand tracing things in the air, in line with his view of the screen.::
(22:28:43) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: brings up long-range scans, checking for anything out of the ordinary, other than a comet ::
(22:29:16) CO_Capt_Harper: :: watching the viewer :: CSO: No, there is not.
(22:29:35) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Shall I recall the team?
(22:29:41) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: I believe I may have located the power source.
(22:30:39) SEC_Lt_Kuari: @ :: stops moving at the mention of power source, assuming everything said on the Bridge is broadcast to the AT ::
(22:30:49) CO_Capt_Harper: :: holds her gaze on the viewer :: ENG: Do you think you can instruct them on how to power it down?
(22:31:40) SEC_Lt_Kuari: RedShirt1> :: stands there dumbly as Kuari pokes and prods the box ::
(22:31:53) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The Mercutio decloaks behind the Atlantis and fires three quantum torpedoes, that slam into our aft shields, rocking the ship hard.
(22:32:29) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Looks a little bit worried, whispers something to himself about once 'having a guy' for this sort of thing.:: CO: Possibly. I'll need to inspect images of the circuitry more thoroughly first.
(22:32:53) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: puts up shields and goes to red alert, but not before the torpedos hit :: CO: Permission to fire back! :: It's more a statement than a request ::
(22:32:59) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: yelps in alarm, holding on to her console to keep from falling ::
(22:33:01) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: isn't at all surprised by this and puts some power from the nonessential systems into the aft shields ::
(22:33:02) CO_Capt_Harper: :: thrown forward, not even needing to ask who attacked them :: CTO: Return fire!
(22:33:22) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: hears Red Alert over the comm and listens instead of inspecting the box :: Self: Oh, no!
(22:33:35) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: maneuvers evasively ::
(22:33:54) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Nearly falls over, but uses the cane to keep from hitting the deck. Rushes back in his console.::
(22:33:58) XO_Cdr_Vallero: Self: !
(22:34:03) CO_Capt_Harper: :: gets up and sits back down :: NAV: Bring us about.
(22:34:29) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Aye, Captain. :: brings the Atlantis about ::
(22:35:05) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: is first inclined to return immediately, but since this attack could be related to the box, decides to stand by instead in case they need to rush it inside ::
(22:35:11) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *AT* Away team, we are under attack, repeat, under attack. Advise that you take cover immediately, immediately
(22:35:18) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The Mercutio weathers the storm and hits us with those damnable Romulan plasma torpedoes again.
(22:35:54) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *CO* Captain! Shall we secure the object and return! :: speaks quickly, knowing Harper has her hands full ::
(22:36:15) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: why, in this day and age, there are still stations on a Starfleet ship without chairs or some form of restraint continues to baffle her ::
(22:36:35) CO_Capt_Harper: NAV: Attack pattern Harper Gamma Four! :: sticks with her own patterns for now ::
(22:37:08) LtChaka: :: Growls in frustration. Normally, he's already be speeding up away from this planet to join the fight. But normally, he's riding a fighter, not a runabout and half the senior staff in his care. ::
(22:37:24) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: wordlessly executes Harper Gamma Four, having studied Harper's tactics previously ::
(22:37:52) CO_Capt_Harper: *XO* Negative, Commander! Get in the shuttle and raise its shields, but stay down there for now.
(22:38:05) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: *SEC*: I'm working on a solution, lieutenant. ::Is stuck between checking shields and systems and statuses, and helping disarm whatever the device is.::
(22:38:30) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *CO* Understood.
(22:38:44) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *AT* Away Team, abort, return to the Deschutes.
(22:38:47) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: sees that Atlantis is coming about and fires with the front torpedos, a full volley, aimed right at the sweet spots of the Mercutio as supplied by Quinn and his team ::
(22:39:12) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Those sweet spots seem to give the Mercutio pause, as she stops firing... and then cloaks.
(22:39:17) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: wishes the medical team aboard was now aboard Atlantis, because they sure aren't useful down here ::
(22:39:35) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: sends a few more phaser blasts after the now cloaked enemy ::
(22:40:06) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: Do you want me to prepare the deflector for a tacyon pulse?
(22:40:12) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Orders, Captain?
(22:40:30) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: leaves the box and returns aboard the Deschutes as ordered, her lackeys following ::
(22:40:59) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: scans visually for any signs of the cloaked ship... any stars seeming to move strangely... ::
(22:40:59) CO_Capt_Harper: NAV: Back off from her last known position.
(22:41:12) XO_Cdr_Vallero: Chaka: :: grumbling :: I can't help but feel like we're providing a bullseye for this box thing down here.
(22:41:19) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: runs a scan, looking for any variations in local spacial eddies that may provide a clue as to where the Mercutio went ::
(22:41:29) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Aye, Sir. :: complies, ready to move as needed ::
(22:41:50) XO_Cdr_Vallero: Chaka: The question is, are they responsible for it being here, or are they looking for it?
(22:42:48) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: confirms transporter locks and status of away team, then starts looking for signs of the Mercutio once she's reassured herself that all is in order ::
(22:42:51) LtChaka: XO: No clue, Commander. Either way, sounds like leverage to me.
(22:43:10) CO_Capt_Harper: :: holding onto her chair arms tightly, watching for any sign of the enemy ::
(22:44:09) XO_Cdr_Vallero: Chaka: All the same, let's stay sensor silent. Although, I suppose our shields are a dead energy signal giveaway.
(22:45:22) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Watches the systems display like a hawk, having already diverted warp power to shields, as well as siphoning off 5% of the artificial gravity from every deck just for a little extra kick. Damage control teams are also deployed and in position. ::
(22:45:42) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Relay to the away team to retrieve that device and bring it up.
(22:46:39) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Is eager to look at the device close up.::
(22:46:42) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks at Kate, wondering what she's thinking :: CO: Aye, Captain.
(22:47:02) LtChaka: XO: I can do that. Although, and I know I didn't want to go anywhere near that thing a few minutes ago, maybe we should haul the box onboard? The pirates can't beam it up past our shields, and if we DO think they want it, they won't want to blow us up with it onboard.
(22:47:07) CO_Capt_Harper: CTO: Damage report, Major?
(22:47:24) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *AT* Away Team, Atlantis Ops. Enemy vessel has retreated for now. Orders are to retrieve the device and bring it back.
(22:47:59) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *CSO* Understood. :: was waiting for this ::
(22:48:28) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: watching reports fly by on his console :: CO: Reports streaming in from all decks of minor damage and injuries. Minor breach on Deck 18.
(22:48:31) SEC_Lt_Kuari: @ :: hears the order and hustles back out with her security detail to pick up the package ::
(22:49:17) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: didn't much appreciate the almost-being-thrown-around, but gets to work digging a little deeper in her scans ::
(22:49:38) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: shares a look with Chaka, one that says he's happy to finally be getting on with this ::
(22:50:14) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: as each of her team takes a corner, they lug the box into the Deschutes ::
(22:51:02) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: shoots T'Lira a look of gratitude, glad she can trust her to look deeper into the scans while she handles the Ops workload ::
(22:51:12) XO_Cdr_Vallero: Chaka: All aboard, return to Atlantis.
(22:51:48) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *CO* Atlantis from Away Team. We have the package, returning to Atlantis.
(22:51:50) CO_Capt_Harper: ENG: Meet them in the shuttlebay and quarantine it until you can power that device down.
(22:51:52) LtChaka: :: Spins his chair around to reach another console, and the second he hears the device touch the deck plating, he throws up the strongest containment field this thing can generate. If nothing else, it'll secure it. He's definitely not promising a gentle ride this time. ::
