(21:17:03) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::is in the sci-lab in sickbay (near sickbay? ..I really need to map sickbay), waiting on Wright to join her for more sample analysis::
(21:17:40) CO_CaptHarper: :: still stuck on Vinland, but energized now that she can help her crew in some way, and is in Vinland's security being a general nuisance ::
(21:18:38) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: stands at TAC1, reading the reports the science teams are putting out regarding the infection ::
(21:18:50) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::The scans are still working to locate all the pockets of nanobots in the computer, whilst he tries desperately to keep their progress at bay.::
(21:19:34) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: sighs a deep breath :: CTO: Major Wolfe. Hail Captain Harper.
(21:20:11) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: gazing out of the window in Ten Forward, trying to come up with a way that she may be useful in such an intricate situation ::
(21:21:12) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: XO: Aye. :: makes the connection ::
(21:21:13) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: swishes - with her sample case - into the lab occupied by Dr. Tailor, clearly on a mission ::
(21:22:33) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::looks up and sees Wright enter the lab, and presses a few buttons on her console to unseal the room briefly so she can enter the work area::CSO: Hello Commmander, come in..
(21:23:52) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: nods her thanks and enters the work area, ignoring the sound of it sealing behind her :: CMO: Hello, Doctor. Do you have any ideas yet about how to isolate and deconstruct the nanobots?
(21:25:32) CO_CaptHarper: :: stops loitering over a security officer checking logs and steps aside when her comm chirps :: *XO* Harper here, go ahead.
(21:25:50) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CO* Kate. :: sits on the floor :: Wright and Tailor have finished their analyses. They've determined the substance contains nanobots.
(21:26:49) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::thinks:: CSO: The best ideas I've had so far is to zap them with some kind of electric pulse.. or to dissolve them somehow, but I haven't tested anything yet.
(21:27:00) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Doesn't know how much longer he can keep the nanobots at bay, but tries not to show his concern.::
(21:27:37) CO_CaptHarper: :: sharp intake of breath :: *XO* Nanobots...?! :: steps out into the hallway :: Kuari, that's evidence of a sophisticated attacker... or a wealthy one.
(21:28:14) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CSO: Or maybe some kind of dampening field. But I'm not sure if that would only affect the bots.. we might be harming the ship in the process.
(21:28:17) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: Well, Ilaihr said something about isolating and deconstructing them to look for a way to ...
(21:28:36) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CO* I agree. Right now, they're attempting to neutralize them. I...think I should inform the crew.
(21:28:50) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Computer: Computer, list all Science officers currently aboard.
(21:29:59) CO_CaptHarper: :: thinks a moment, then nods even though she can't be seen :: *XO* Agreed. They need to know what they are up against.
(21:30:20) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: listens through the list and brightens at a name ::
(21:30:33) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *SCI* Wright to T'Lira.
(21:31:02) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::ponders:: Self: White blood cells... Maybe something that would only attack the nanobots. CSO: Antibodies.
(21:31:12) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: is startled out of her thoughts :: *CSO* T'Lira here. What do you require, Commander?
(21:31:13) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: Three brains is better than two, perhaps.... Antibodies?
(21:31:59) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *SCI* T'Lira, I know you're not currently on duty, but I could use your help with something. Would you be willing to come to my location?
(21:32:02) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CO* Yeah. Hopefully now that we know what it is, we can get rid of it before it does any more damage.
(21:32:34) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::walks over to a drawer and pulls out some medical nanobots in a container:: CSO: What if we programmed these..
(21:32:36) SCI_Lt_TLira: *CSO* Of course. Where are you currently located?
(21:33:44) CO_CaptHarper: *XO* Do you have a plan to eradicate them yet?
(21:34:03) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *SCI* Sickbay, medlab two.
(21:34:32) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CO* Science and Medical are working on it now. I think Wright said she developed a way to track them, at least, but it was untested.
(21:34:39) SCI_Lt_TLira: *CSO* I will be there shortly. :: stands and starts moving towards the doors ::
(21:34:59) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *SCI* Thank you, T'Lira.
(21:35:21) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: Now... well, it's possible, but do we have enough of them?
(21:36:32) CO_CaptHarper: *XO* I am sure they will figure it out. Keep me updated, and good work so far.
(21:36:53) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::A bead of sweat forms on his forehead, as he begins to tire at the constant onslaught, the stalemate he was keeping it at slowly falling.::
(21:37:14) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CSO: That is the question.. Seems as if they'd have to be self-replicating, given how many of the malicious ones there are.
(21:37:20) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: takes a moment to remember where medlab two is before finding the turbolift that'll get her closest to that area of the ship ::
(21:37:44) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: Indeed, especially since the replicators can't be trusted. :: unaware of Ilaihr's losing battle ::
(21:37:51) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CO* :: smiles weakly to herself :: Thanks, and I will. Kuari out.
(21:38:17) CO_CaptHarper: :: swears elaborately in Andorian when the comm goes quiet ::
(21:38:30) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: sets up the slide to show T'Lira when she arrives ::
(21:38:58) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: arrives on the deck that contains sickbay and heads for medlab two ::
(21:40:43) CO_CaptHarper: :: walks back into Vinland security, only to be told that they can't find the Ferengi in question ::
(21:40:53) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks to Ilaihr, hard at work at his station on the Bridge ::
(21:41:22) CO_CaptHarper: VinlandCSEC: What do you mean you can not find him? How could a Ferengi just disappear from a Starbase?
(21:42:10) CO_CaptHarper: VinlandCSEC> Sorry ma'am, he just vanished without a trace. Either he snuck aboard an outgoing ship, or is still here and somehow shielded from our internal sensors.
(21:42:19) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: dials in the old-fashioned microscope until she's happy with it :: CMO: But we'd have to program them to seek and destroy, right? Are they strong enough? Perhaps we can test them...
(21:42:55) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Takes fleeting moments to glance at the scan results, ever second he looks away, an eternity the machines can exploit to get a larger foothold of the systems.:j
(21:43:11) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: arrives in the medlab and looks around, curious ::
(21:44:03) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: Oh, I think that's her. :: waves through the transparent pane ::
(21:44:19) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::spots Tlira and waves her over:: SCI: We're over here, in this corner..
(21:44:25) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: gets up and crawls to Ilaihr's side, looking to his console and only understanding half of what's on the readouts :: ENG: How's it coming?
(21:44:46) CO_CaptHarper: :: stares at the CSEC a moment, then realizes that her ire is misguided :: VinlandCSEC: Thank you. I am sure that you will keep looking, but I appreciate the effort of your people.
(21:44:49) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: looks over and steps over to that particular corner ::
(21:45:50) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: unseals the lock to allow entry, then seals it again behind her :: SCI: Okay, here's the situation.
(21:46:38) CSO_LCdr_Wright: SCI: There's been some kind of attack, and malicious nanobots are attacking our computer systems where they come into contact with it. Hence the old equipment. Here, take a look... :: gestures to the microscope she's set up ::
(21:47:19) CO_CaptHarper: VinlandCSEC> Thank you ma'am, it's really the damndest thing in this day and age... :: starts flipping through a log again in case he missed something ::
(21:47:28) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: the Eyebrow goes up as she takes a look :: CSO: Intriguing. How did they get aboard?
(21:48:09) CO_CaptHarper: VinlandCSEC: Can I check out a phaser? My ship has been targeted, after all, and I am stuck here and a possible target.
(21:49:01) CSO_LCdr_Wright: SCI: We're not sure. Security is dealing with the crewman that owns the quarters in which we found the initial attack. But more importantly, Dr. Tailor and I are trying to find a way to disable them, and we could use your help. They're very small, and suspended in a fluid of biological origin.
(21:49:50) CO_CaptHarper: VinlandCSEC> CO: Of course, Captain, no problem. :: goes to a wall locker and retrieves a hand phaser, then signs it out in the log to her :: Here you go, ma'am. :: hands it over ::
(21:50:20) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: frowns very, very slightly :: CSO: I am unsure of where to begin without completely dissecting one of the devices and its corresponding computer code... that would require someone with engineering talent... perhaps a purge of the affected systems?
(21:50:41) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::His focus is intent, so much he can't even speak, his mind reaching out instead.:: ~XO~: Difficult... Escalating... Inevitable... We Require... A Solution Soon... ::His head briefly nods at the scanners.::
(21:51:44) CSO_LCdr_Wright: SCI: :: sighs :: Ilaihr suggested much the same, dissecting them... that's why I reached out to Dr. Tailor here, thinking to use her cell biology skills. She proposes using medical nanobots to function as antibodies... :: looks over at Dr. Tailor ::
(21:51:48) CO_CaptHarper: :: takes the phaser and attaches it to her hip :: VinlandCSEC: Thank you. Let me know if you find him. :: offers a smile as she heads to the door ::
(21:51:59) CO_CaptHarper: VinlandCSEC> Aye, Captain. :: turns back to his work ::
(21:52:18) XO_LCdr_Kuari: ENG: Do you have other engineers helping you? Certainly we had more on board getting the ship ready to go.
(21:52:35) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: receives a communique from Vinland. :: XO: Commander, I have a message from Vinland security.
(21:53:20) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: turns to Wolfe, not waiting for Ilaihr's answer :: CTO: Yes?
(21:54:32) CO_CaptHarper: :: starts wandering Vinland's labyrinthine corridors and thinking ::
(21:54:54) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: reads a moment :: XO: They say they have found evidence of the Ferengi shopkeeper and his stall, but there's no sign of him there or in his quarters. There's nothing of consequence left behind at the stall. Vinland Security will continue to investigate what remain of his possessions.
(21:55:25) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: nods, her ears drooping slightly, crestfallen :: CTO: Thank you.
(21:55:38) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ~XO~: Manually Disconnecting... Unaffected Systems... Quarantining... Everything. Unsure... Who Is Available.
(21:58:28) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: notes Ilaihr's halted speech and that he's extremely focused and lets him be, assuming he's doing everything he can, and moves to the center of the Bridge ::
(21:59:48) CO_CaptHarper: :: thinking about how to hide from Vinland security ::
(21:59:58) XO_LCdr_Kuari: Major. Open a shipwide channel.
(22:00:31) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: does as Kuari asks :: Channel open, Commander.
(22:03:20) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Hopes that Alexis and the Doctor can find a solution soon.::
(22:03:37) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: sits :: *Atlantis* All hands, this is acting Captain Kuari. As you know, Atlantis has been quarantined from Starbase Vinland. What you may not know is why. A nanobot virus has been brought aboard and released within our computer systems. It appears to hold no risk to organic beings, but be aware that systems may malfunction in dangerous ways. Use caution when interacting with any computer or system run by a computer.
(22:03:37) XO_LCdr_Kuari: Check in with your superiors for ways you can assist.
(22:03:38) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: SCI/CSO: Normally I'd use the regular ships systems to connect to the nanobots to control them. Without that, I'll have to find another way, a more localized signal. Maybe through a PADD..
(22:04:13) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *Atlantis* If you notice a malfunction, please report it directly to the Bridge. We are working to neutralize the problem. Kuari out.
(22:05:42) CO_CaptHarper: :: ends up wandering by Vinland's largest museum, that she was visiting with Lexy on their last stay here ::
(22:05:49) XO_LCdr_Kuari: ACTION> Kuari's message over Atlantis' comm system is distorted, only half understandable.
(22:06:27) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: her mouth flattens to a grim line, trying to decipher the message :: Self: That sounds like Kuari.
(22:06:33) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CSO/SCI: We should set up a couple of experiments, see what works. ::looks up as the message comes through:: Looks like it's affecting comms also, that's not good.
(22:06:58) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO/SCI: I'll see if I can get through on individual comms. Keep at it, I won't be a moment.
(22:07:13) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *XO* Wright to Kuari, can you hear me?
(22:07:15) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::nods at Wright::
(22:08:09) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: perks up at Wright's voice, hopeful :: *CSO* I can. Have you found a way to neutralize the nanobots? :: transmission is clearer than the shipwide, but still garbled ::
(22:08:13) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: ponders various ideas and theories, but is coming up short, surprisingly. Her specialty is most definitely not in nanotechnology :: CMO: I will defer to your expertise, I am quite inexperienced in the matters of such technology.
(22:08:51) CO_CaptHarper: :: pauses at the museum's entrance, then leans against the railing opposite it, and ponders a moment ::
(22:09:21) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *XO* I... think I understood what you asked? We're still working, but I wanted to let you know that your shipwide was almost unintelligible from our location in Sickbay.
(22:10:19) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::"Its continuing to spread." He thinks to himself. "It cannot be allowed to reach the main data core..." He gasps. "It could gain registry codes, shield frequencies... fleet protocols..."::
(22:11:29) CO_CaptHarper: :: idly picks a cat hair off her uniform, and then stares at it for a moment before looking back up at the museum and remembering what happened here ::
(22:11:37) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: ears droop further :: *CSO* Thanks...thank you. :: thinking she might be heard better by speaking up, says louder :: *CSO* KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
(22:12:16) CO_CaptHarper: Of course...! McKnight did it, why not the Ferengi?
(22:12:29) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::takes a sample of the green goo and a sample of the nanobots and puts both into a closed petri dish. Connects to the nanobots via a padd, and inputs a series of signals to have them attack the malignant bots..::
(22:13:29) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: flinches :: *XO* Will do, I think? It's interesting that you are still garbled over individual comm, but you can hear me... I wonder on which end the problem is. I'll update as soon as I can. Dr. Tailor, T'Lira, and I are working on a solution involving medical nanobots.
(22:14:28) CO_CaptHarper: :: shoots off from the railing toward the nearest turbolift, walking with intent ::
(22:14:45) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CSO* Yes, I can hear you clearly, still. Perhaps it's the outbound audio from the Bridge. :: looks to Ilaihr ::
(22:16:36) CO_CaptHarper: :: enters the turbolift :: Deck 16, deuterium storage. Yes, really, I am not lost.
(22:17:33) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::puts the petri dish into an electron microscope and fires it up, bringing the magnification levels to where they can see clearly what is happening inside of the dish::
(22:18:49) CO_CaptHarper: :: draws her phaser while she rides the turbolift into Vinland's bowels ::
(22:19:06) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Needs to understand it's ultimate purpose. Where is it's main target, and are these it's attempts at distraction, or is causing systemic damage the goal.::
(22:22:52) XO_LCdr_Kuari: ACTION> Tailor sees both sets of nanobots within the green goo under the microscope. The enemy nanobots seem active, but the medical nanobots aren't moving at all.
(22:23:20) CO_CaptHarper: :: the TL doors slides open, and she makes her way to deuterium storage, finding no one along the way that would raise an eyebrow at her drawn phaser ::
(22:23:31) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::On this final glance, the scans are complete, show a full map of the infection. Multiple areas affected, using the isolinear pathways like rivers to flow through the ship.:: ~XO~: Scan... Complete... Infection is Systemic.
(22:23:49) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: ...what happens if we remove the nanobots from their biological medium?
(22:25:20) CO_CaptHarper: :: enters the cavernous room, glad that she's not wearing heels this time so that her footfalls are much quieter ::
(22:25:24) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: turns her head towards Ilaihr :: *ENG* I...was afraid of that. Does it help you isolate anything at this point?
(22:25:27) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CSO: I'm not sure, but we might as well find out.
(22:26:29) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO/SCI: Because it seems to me as though the nanobots will even take out our nanobots... so maybe removing them from their biological medium is what will hurt them. We can't attack them with technology, so ... try biology?
(22:26:40) CO_CaptHarper: :: pauses at the door, staying as quiet as she can, phaser at the ready ::
(22:27:05) XO_LCdr_Kuari: Shifty Ferengi> :: scurries for cover at Harper's approach, knocking a spanner loudly to the floor ::
(22:27:34) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CSO: That makes sense to me.. ::removes the first petri dish from the electron microscope and takes a second sample from the green goo, setting up another petri dish::
(22:27:43) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::His hands stop, and his head turns.:: XO: I do not believe there is anything more I can do from here, Commander. Only understanding the 'nanogen', its final purpose, can help now. Anything I do now is meerly, a failing delaying action.
(22:27:56) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: I wonder what will kill the goo? Radiation?
(22:27:59) CO_CaptHarper: :: eyes dart to the noisy location as she closes in, phaser ahead of her ::
(22:29:04) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: nods ::
(22:29:38) XO_LCdr_Kuari: ENG: See if you can go help Tailor and Wright. They might need an engineer concerning the nanobots.
(22:29:42) CO_CaptHarper: Come out and drop your weapons!
(22:29:46) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::ponders:: CSO: Like old-style chemotherapy? Or heat, perhaps..
(22:30:07) XO_LCdr_Kuari: Shifty Ferengi> :: lamely :: CO: No one's here!
(22:30:46) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO/SCI: Just thinking of things that would destroy biological elements without damaging technology directly.
(22:30:52) CO_CaptHarper: :: tries to not roll her eyes and fails :: We have you surrounded, just come out. Slowly.
(22:31:07) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Nods back.:: XO: I will help them, how I can. ::Stands up, a sad glance at the visual representation of the sickness Atlantis is suffering, before quickly moving to the turbolift.::
(22:31:56) SCI_Lt_TLira: CMO/CSO: Would it be possible to evacuate the ship, should it be necessary to do so? Such an alternative may broaden our options considerably.
(22:32:01) CO_CaptHarper: :: holds her phaser on where the voice was coming from ::
(22:32:36) XO_LCdr_Kuari: Shifty Ferengi> :: whimpers audibly and shifts sideways from behind a tank, hands up to either side of his large head ::
(22:33:03) CO_CaptHarper: :: keeps the phaser trained on the Ferengi :: Who hired you?
(22:33:20) CO_CaptHarper: :: not really thinking this fellow to be the sort to mastermind such an attack ::
(22:33:32) CSO_LCdr_Wright: SCI/CMO: We'll cross that bridge when we come to it. No point unless killing the medium renders the bots inoperative.
(22:34:02) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks at Dr. Tailor questioningly ::
(22:34:47) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Approaches the Science lab, as quickly as possible, time now of the essence.::
(22:35:54) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CSO/SCI: I'd use it as a last resort, but yes, it would give us more options.
(22:36:12) XO_LCdr_Kuari: Shifty Ferengi> :: narrows his eyes, seeming more confident now in his response :: CO: That information is within strict confidence between me and my employer. Unless you can pay, of course. :: grins toothily ::
(22:37:25) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: watches Ilaihr enter the turbolift, then stares off in thought ::
(22:37:37) CO_CaptHarper: :: stares down the Ferengi, knowing how they tend to view women :: SF: I think this phaser is the only bargaining chip I need right now.
(22:37:42) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: ...so... the next step is to find out if killing the medium works....right? :: looks at the petri dish Dr. Tailor is holding
(22:38:26) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CSO: Yes, that'd be the next step. ::adds the petri dish to a shielded chamber where they can safely experiment on it with various kinds of radiation::
(22:38:57) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Puts in his access code and enters the lab. Out of breath.:: CSO: How many I assist, Commander?
(22:39:54) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: turns to looks :: ENG: Ah! :: takes in his appearance :: ...So.. it has come to this, has it? :: fills him in on where they are :: We're open to suggestions....
(22:40:15) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: looks over at Ilaihr, internally relieved that an engineer is present. Perhaps he may have some methods of disabling the devices that do not involve any form of radiation ::
(22:42:14) XO_LCdr_Kuari: Shifty Ferengi> :: drops his smile in fear, but only for a moment, calling upon some Rule of Acquisition regarding confrontation with a hand weapon :: CO: You won't kill me, Starfleet. Really, there's no reason to threaten me. You have resources...and I have information. Let's make a trade, shall we?
(22:44:36) CO_CaptHarper: :: stares daggers, her general dislike for Ferengi amplified by this particular one having threatened what's most dear to her :: SF: Let me be clear, Ferengi. Vinland security has no idea that you are down here. I could actually kill you and get away with it, and do not think for a moment that I will not do so because I am Starfleet. :: bluffs :: You have put my ship and crew at risk. Now talk before I shoot you.
(22:46:11) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Ponders the barrage of information, using the precious moments he processed it, as wisely as possible.:: CSO: I must see their programming... their DNA. ::He looked to the Doctor at the last part.::
(22:48:40) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ENG: Let me bring up the magnification on the electron microscope.. ::punches up a few buttons to bring the magnification to the correct level::
(22:49:20) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CSO: The ultimate goal and the answers we seek... May lay within. ::Approaches the doctors bench.::
(22:49:48) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::moves over to allow Ilaihr to have a look::
(22:49:56) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: hovers over his shoulder ::
(22:51:08) XO_LCdr_Kuari: Shifty Ferengi> :: smile drops, this time staying that way. He looks to the side, possibly as a way to escape :: *CO* If you shoot me, you'll never know! Trade now, or you may lose your chance!
(22:51:44) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Puts on his spectacles, examining the physical structure of the devices.::
(22:52:08) CO_CaptHarper: :: icily :: SF: What. Do. You. Want.
(22:56:39) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: All: These are based on Borg technology. I see distinct nano-architecture reminiscent of the Borg. But it is not of them. But that gives us a clue...
(22:59:08) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ENG: So they would adapt to whatever we throw at them, probably. What has worked against them in the past?
(22:59:34) XO_LCdr_Kuari: Shifty Ferengi> :: begins to grin, but it's possible he's tempering it this time :: CO: I require a shuttlecraft. I'm a reasonable businessman and I know you don't have latinum, so...choose five hundred cases of whatever fuel you have most of.
(23:01:36) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CMO: The ability to adapt is just as much about the collective itself, as it is the technology. The scope they exist on allows them to adapt to a number of approaches... but they are not invulnerable.
(23:02:00) CO_CaptHarper: SF: No deal. I do not have time for this anyway, and Vinland security will get you to talk. :: fires the phaser, which was on stun the whole time, then taps her commbadge when the Ferengi hits the deck :: Captain Harper to Vinland Security; I have your missing Ferengi on deck 16, in deuterium storage.
(23:02:11) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ENG: What do you think about the radiation approach?
