(6:20:19 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: stands at Tactical, quietly massaging his temples, but otherwise giving no indication that he is still hung over after going back to his quarters and drinking heavily. Alone. Because that's what this boor who hates people does. He looks across to see Randen at the Tactical 2 station to the other side of the command seats ::
(6:20:36 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: in her ready room, catching up on paperwork during the slipstream flight ::
(6:21:44 PM) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Sits at the engineering bridge station, monitoring the integrity of the slipstream corridor. ::
(6:22:20 PM) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Luckily, didn't do all that much drinking. It just goes to his head too fast for him to get in THAT much trouble. ::
(6:22:22 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: concentrating on not making us all die horribly ::
(6:22:25 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: holds the bridge from the CO seat, watching their approach to this new planet in unexplored space. Anything could happen... ::
(6:22:45 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: hates not being on the bridge during slipstream flight, specifically at the helm, but this paperwork will not do itself ::
(6:23:10 PM) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: at the secondary science station, researching something that she's been meaning to do in past weeks, but just hasn't gotten around to until now ::
(6:23:27 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Wonders around engineering, making sure everything is spick and span. Humming along, and nodding to the crew as he goes.::
(6:24:32 PM) CEO_LtQuinn: XO: Commander, I'm looking at the computer's deflector modulation, and it's just a little sluggish. It's nothing critical, but I'd like permission to dedicate additional processsing from the main computer to compensate.
(6:24:44 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: filing operational reports during a few minutes of downtime ::
(6:25:09 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: Bridge: Slipstream exit in two minutes.
(6:25:17 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: frowns :: CEO: That's fine.
(6:25:26 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: NAV: Thank you.
(6:25:36 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: and, even she had to admit, it was starting to become... normal ::
(6:26:23 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *CO* Bridge to Harper. We're arriving.
(6:26:27 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: has been nursing his headache, a luxury of being in slipstream flight. Now, he brings himself to and gets into his proper state in preparation for exit to normal space. ::
(6:26:57 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: *XO* Thank you, Commander. I will be out shortly.
(6:28:09 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: signs off on three things and stands, looking out the window into the stream ::
(6:28:17 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Wonders what kind of new exciting world they are exploring, and what possibilities it will open.::
(6:29:45 PM) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Puts in an order to engineering for a diagnostic of both the slipstream drive itself and the main deflector, just to make sure that slight dip isn't indicative of a larger problem. ::
(6:30:17 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: Bridge: Exiting Slipstream in 10 seconds.
(6:31:12 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Atlantis exits slipstream into normal space, in the target star system, ruled by a medium yellow star.
(6:31:23 PM) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Reading his Tactical 2 console to update himself of their situation since his last shift. Sees Wolfe looking his way and gives a nod before resuming reading the activity logs. ::
(6:32:03 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: turns back to the viewscreen and his console after the eye contact with Randen. ::
(6:32:54 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: Bridge: How's it look, people? :: leans forward, studying the image on the main viewer ::
(6:32:57 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: sees the transition to normal space and exits to the bridge ::
(6:33:21 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: XO: Drift 1.7 AU.
(6:33:23 PM) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: closes her research and does a quick status check of the sensors. All is well there. ::
(6:34:22 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: studies his console looking for anything that's a threat ::
(6:34:40 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: Bridge: Full sensor survey of the system.
(6:34:44 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: running an intial scan of the system ::
(6:34:50 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: In progress.
(6:35:07 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: pops out of the CO chair and switches ::
(6:35:40 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: sits down :: XO: Thank you, Commander.
(6:37:01 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Notices the request of some diagnostics on his, looks up at the now powering down QSD.:: Self: Perfect time to do it I think. ::Plods to an actual console to begin remedying the deflector.::
(6:37:27 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: Get anything done? :: seats himself, still watching the main viewer ::
(6:38:51 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Well, as much as can be expected when it is so... bureaucratic.
(6:39:12 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: G-type main sequence star. Six major planets, including two gas giants and four terrestrial. The second planet is class M.
(6:41:21 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Class M? NAV: Take us to the second planet for a closer look.
(6:42:32 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Monitoring some of the telemetry from the bridge, checking out the system, whilst the diagnostic plods away.::
(6:42:36 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: The second planet has a stable orbit at approximately .9 AU, in the habitable zone.
(6:42:40 PM) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Gets the results back from a quick and cursory system diagnostic, SOP for entry into an unknown system for him. :: XO: The star's radiation is having no unusual affect on ship's systems that I can detect so far. Looks like we dodged the weirdo radiation bullet this time.
(6:43:07 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: plots a course for the second planet, orbital trajectory ::
(6:44:38 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: CTO: Anyone else in the system?
(6:44:42 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CEO: Well, that's good.
(6:45:48 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: disappointed :: CO: Nothing but us chickens.
(6:46:40 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: does not know that expression, but refrains from asking for explanation since she got the gist of it ::
(6:47:15 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: on the other hand, smirks ::
(6:48:02 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: puts external sensors on the main viewer to observe approach to an undiscovered Minshara-class world ::
(6:49:10 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: follows the course at warp 3 :: CO: It's on the near side of the star, we should be there shortly.
(6:49:19 PM) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: looks over her scans for any potential comets, asteroids, or other potentially harmful space debris ::
(6:50:08 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: I have a feeling this world is why Starfleet sent us here to survey.
(6:50:26 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: That does seem likely, doesn't it?
(6:52:20 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Class M world, out this far, and potentially unclaimed? I would think so.
(6:52:44 PM) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Points to his console. :: CTO: I think I found a dust particle...
(6:54:54 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: Hmmm ::Studies the M-class planet.:: Interesting.
(6:55:22 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks at his console :: TAC: While I would love to arm quantums over that...
(6:55:38 PM) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Chuckles very softly at his station. He craves adventure and excitement as much as the next guy, but a little bit of boring every now and then never hurt anyone. That's what the holodeck's for. ::
(6:56:37 PM) CEO_LtQuinn: :: In fact, while he has a quiet moment, he goes about reserving a time slot. He hasn't run his parkour program in some time, and it might do him good. ::
(6:57:07 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Scans so far indicate two natural satellites and a slight axial tilt, stand by for more data.
(6:58:00 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: exits warp and curves into orbit around the planet ::
(6:58:28 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: watches, taking notes ::
(6:58:49 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: stands by, just as curious as anyone ::
(6:59:35 PM) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: her scans have turned up no overtly hostile space debris in the area, so she turns her attention to watching the scans in progress, eager to see what they turn up ::
(7:00:19 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: immediately scans for lifesigns ::
(7:00:52 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Diagnostics so far indicate there's atleast a 10 millicochrane misalignment issue with the deflector dish, with something else bound to show up in the pathways somewhere.::
(7:02:10 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The main viewer shows a beautiful blue marble with white clouds and green and brown continents, as its sun dramatically rises into an Abrams-esque lensflare on our screen.
(7:03:52 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: It seems you're misbehaving. This isn't a replicator, a larger misalignment would start to become problematic at warp, possibly dangerous at slipstream... naughty Atlantis.
(7:05:16 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: Looks like good camping leave to me.
(7:05:40 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: nods to the XO ::
(7:05:48 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Is anyone down there?
(7:06:08 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Abundant plant and animal life, but no signs of permanent civilization as far as I can tell.
(7:07:27 PM) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Grins at the viewscreen. :: CO: Looks a lot like Earth, doesn't it? I wonder if there are any variant names left that aren't already in the survey directory.
(7:07:46 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Becomes rather excited at the planet's bioreadings. It'd been years since he last went on safari.::
(7:07:59 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: CEO: It does indeed, Lieutenant. Though I am certain all those names have been used.
(7:09:43 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Well, Commander, how would you like to get down there and have a look?
(7:09:45 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: In other words, if there's intelligent life, unlikely to have progressed past the Neolithic. Most biomes represented - tropical forest, boreal forest, grasslands, tundra, desert, you name it.
(7:10:34 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: grins broadly ::
(7:11:04 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: turns from the CSO back to the XO :: Especially after that rousing description, yes?
(7:11:52 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: pops out of his chair ::
(7:12:07 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: XO: Animal life is prevalent, so be prepared for hostile wildlife, Commander.
(7:12:37 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CSO: Noted. Care to brave the wild with me?
(7:12:43 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::The QSD comes back with a misalignment of 2 milicochranes.:: Self: Thats not so bad... but your drift is atleast 3 or 4 times more prominent than at warp on top of the defelector misalignment.... gotta get that below 0.5...
(7:13:25 PM) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: will content herself with staring at the planetary scans from here ::
(7:13:31 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: And the deflector around 3.5.... tops...
(7:13:41 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: fails to suppress a grin :: XO: My sample containers are packed and ready!
(7:14:11 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: totally jealous :: CSO: Pick a good spot for the beam-down.
(7:14:40 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: XO: Do you have a biome preference?
(7:15:54 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CTO: Wolfe, you're with us, plus another if you please.
(7:16:14 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CSO: You're the scientist, you pick.
(7:16:29 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Wonders if he'll get a chance to explore the planet at some point... thinks it best to work out where the misalignments lay.::
(7:16:34 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: makes for the TL ::
(7:17:21 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: anxiously looks through the scans, not super thrilled about the pressure of choosing ::
(7:18:10 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: XO: Aye. :: looks up and nods to Randen before turning to the TL :: XO: This is a new planet. I'd be more comfortable with more security. Just in case.
(7:18:42 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: waits as the door swishes open :: CTO: Very well.
(7:19:42 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: finally selects an area where coastal, grassland, and boreal forest biomes converge and sends the coordinates to the TR, then jumps up and makes for the TL with a secret passing smile at Kate ::
(7:20:35 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: smiles back at Lexy, wanting very much to go along, or even to get a look at that fresh data ::
(7:20:50 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: steps to the TL :: *Kuari* Wolfe to Kuari. Report to Transporter Room 1 for an away mission.
(7:21:41 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: SCI: I leave Sci/Ops in your hands, stand by for data from the surface! :: too excited to stay annoyed ::
(7:22:16 PM) SCI_Lt_TLira: CSO: Aye sir.
(7:22:25 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: Show me where the problem is Atlantis... can't be having you going off canter.
(7:22:27 PM) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: takes her large eyes off the image of the planet on her console in the Armory and starts hustling :: *CTO* On my way!
(7:23:01 PM) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: quickly transforms into Armored Dragon mode ::
(7:23:26 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: rides the TL with the Bridge crew down to TR1 ::
(7:24:33 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: And the prospect of seeing new wildlife, and some undiscovered flower species... is something I cannot pass up.... ::Keeps working to find the problem, even whilst the diagnostic is still actually looking.::
(7:25:04 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looking over scans on her PADD :: TL: Gravity is slightly lower than Earth, air is a little more nitrogen-rich than typical but breathable, it's mid-morning and summer at the beamdown site so we have hours of daylight, temperature is currently a little cool but comfortable.
(7:26:40 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: pokes at her chair arm display from the center seat, but is annoyed at its limited capability ::
(7:27:53 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: TL: Weather is mostly sunny, precipitation is unlikely. Light wind from the SSW.
(7:28:05 PM) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: moves over to the Sci/Ops console after locking the secondary science station and continues running scans from up here ::
(7:28:19 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: arrives on Deck Six and exits the TL and enters TR1 ::
(7:28:35 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: eyes the secondary science station ::
(7:28:38 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CSO: Sounds perfect.
(7:28:40 PM) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Notes a deflector diagnostic in progress, and nods in satisfaction. He also initiates a sweep of the main computer, searching for clutter or anything else that might have contributed to the slowdown. ::
(7:29:15 PM) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Under his breath. :: Please, let this not be another porn sweep.
(7:30:00 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: grabs a hand phaser and her specially-prepared Science kit, worn over the shoulders like a backpack, and pats her trusty tricorder in her pocket, then steps onto the pad ::
(7:30:50 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: steps onto the PADD, securing a phaser to his belt ::
(7:31:07 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: (( pad, not PADD ... ))
(7:31:11 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: gets up and casually wanders over to Sci II ::
(7:31:15 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: Aha! ::A magnetic coupling inside the deflector has depolarised, causing atleast 40% of the misalignment issue, on that end.:: Self: Another piece of your mischievous puzzle....
(7:31:36 PM) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: scrambles into TR1 ::
(7:31:48 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: pulls her hair into a quick ponytail ::
(7:32:04 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: unlocks the station and begins to look through the sensor data herself ::
(7:32:19 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: steps to the back of the TR pad and turns to face behind the team, phaser at the ready. ::
(7:32:21 PM) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: twirls around once in an effort to check that she hadn't left marks on the carpet, then keeps going, onto the transporter pad ::
(7:32:39 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: smiles at Kuari, gives her a little wave ::
(7:33:11 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Looks back at the scans of the planet, envious of whoever is going down.:: Self: Blasted deflector.
(7:34:01 PM) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: aims her head at Wright and smiles in her helmet, standing still except for her laboring lungs to either side ::
(7:35:29 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: watches Kuari for a moment, amused, then when seeing everyone in place :: TR1 Crewman: Energize.
(7:37:52 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The away team beams down and appears on a grassy hillock cresting out of a tall forest. The land seems drop away to the west as the ocean is visible. The grasslands continue away from the forest in one direction, while the verdant trees dominate another.
(7:38:03 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: But then again... I can't trek across vast wildernesses and fight off a thousand apex predators per square mile like I used to.... ::Imagines many many dinosaur type animals as a worst case scenario.:: Perhaps better to find out if the ecology is similar to a world like Earth. Not so many large dangerous animals to run away from.
(7:38:52 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: Touché Atlantis.
(7:39:01 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks around in wonder while pulling out her tricorder ::
(7:39:21 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: sees that they've beamed down and calls across the bridge :: SCI: Keep a transporter lock on them.
(7:39:32 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: swings his phaser in an arc around from just beyond the crewmate to his left, to just before the crewmate to his right, scanning along the way for anything that might approach with any sort of hostile intentions. Perceiving no immediate threats, he keeps his phaser out and keeps watching for a while. ::
(7:40:23 PM) SCI_Lt_TLira: CO: Yes, sir. :: makes sure the transporter is kept focused on them at all times ::
(7:40:40 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: signals Kuari and Randen to move out and explore a little ways to search for anything dangerous. ::
(7:41:13 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: nods and looks around :: CSO: Well done, Lieutenant Commander.
(7:41:57 PM) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Nods and scouts ahead of the rest of the Away Team. ::
(7:41:59 PM) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: follows Wolfe's lead and covers another direction, scanning with her HUD ::
(7:42:43 PM) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: notes Wolfe's orders and scouts ahead, going the opposite way from Randen ::
(7:42:52 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: Perhaps we can have you fixed in time for the away team to an initial scouting run?
(7:42:54 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: faintly blushes under the praise :: XO: Thank you, Commander. It reminded me of places near where I grew up. :: sweeps her tricorder around, scanning for wildlife and anything else of interest ::
(7:44:59 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Birds chide the scouting away team members from the trees, and sounds of animals scurrying away from them in the forest are apparent.
(7:47:06 PM) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: allows herself to be distracted only momentarily by the fauna, cataloging them as unthreatening ::
(7:48:13 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: XO: Miscellaneous creatures around, obviously, but I don't see anything that seems overtly hostile in any direction.
(7:49:17 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: walks comfortably with Wright and Wolfe, allowing them to scan without tripping, and takes in what he can with his eyes :: CSO: That's good news.
(7:50:13 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: finally stows his phaser, comfortable enough for now with no threats detected nearby, and walks back to the rest of the party ::
(7:51:26 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: digs into the sensor data and initiates a few more scans on areas of interest to her::
(7:52:23 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: XO: Majority of lifeforms over 1kg could be classified mammalian. :: stops and pulls sample containers out of her pack, taking samples of soil and vegetation nearby for later study ::
(7:54:16 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: stops as Wright works ::
(7:54:20 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: tags some scans of some amazing glacial formations in the polar regions ::
(7:54:22 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: spots what look like animal droppings, collects those as well ::
(7:54:42 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::QSD error is just a general wear and tear issue, only needs a simple realignment.::
(7:54:57 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Maybe a spot of polish.:j
(7:55:35 PM) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: scans are showing a rather pleasant world below and there has been no interference in the transporter lock. That doesn't mean that she'll take her eye off it for one second, of course ::
(7:55:35 PM) SEC_Lt_Kuari: *CTO* Kuari reporting in, my vector's clear.
(7:56:23 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: XO: Shall I report our status to the ship, Commander?
(7:56:54 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: was about to do so, but smiles at Wright, seeing how much she's enjoying the mission :: CSO: Be my guest.
(7:56:56 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: *SEC* Good. Return to the party. *TAC* How are things in your direction, Lieutenant?
(7:57:34 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: Still... there's something off with the deflector.
(7:57:56 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: overhears Wolfe's comm ::
(7:58:11 PM) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: trots back to the away team ::
(7:58:39 PM) TAC_2LT_Randen: *CTO* Quite... Maybe a little too quite.
(7:58:45 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Atlantis* Away team to Atlantis. We have beamed down successfully, the site seems ideal. We are exploring our immediate vicinity.
(7:59:13 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: *TAC* Always good to stay vigilant.
(7:59:14 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: :: immediately answers ::: *CSO* Wonderful news, Commander, thank you.
(7:59:26 PM) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *CO* :: shares Wright's comm :: So far, scouts are turning up clear. What do you think, Captain? A bit of leave could be in order?
(8:00:08 PM) CO_Capt_Harper: *XO* It very well may be. Once the initial scouting mission is complete, we will discuss it aboard ship and see about that.
(8:00:20 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: spots a tiny, slow-moving arthropod and pulls out a stasis vial while attempting to creep up on it ::
(8:00:52 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::The repolarisation will take atleast an hour, and theres still something causing additional misalignment:: Self: Hopefully that diagnostic can find it, because I cant seem to yet.
