(21:11:42) CO_CaptHarper: :: sitting in the center seat, reading over the last of the reports from SFHQ ::
(21:12:31) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: already has the parameters for a wide-field scan ready to initiate as soon as they drop out of slipstream ::
(21:12:57) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO, XO: Ma'ams, we will be exiting slipstream in five minutes. All readings nominal.
(21:13:56) CO_CaptHarper: :: straightens herself up, having squirmed around a bit while reading the dull reports :: NAV: Thank you, lieutenant.
(21:14:50) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: is in the shower after a couple hours on the holodeck doing some rock climbing. ::
(21:14:53) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Is at his console, idly working away.::
(21:14:59) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: absorbs Navarro's information without comment, but seems to straighten up a bit herself and finish up what she's doing at her console ::
(21:16:04) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO/XO: Wide-field scan ready to initiate on your orders, Sirs.
(21:17:12) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Thank you.
(21:17:25) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CSO: Thanks.
(21:17:28) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO, XO: Slipstream exit in thirty seconds.
(21:18:08) CO_CaptHarper: :: watches the viewscreen for the transition ::
(21:18:12) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: gets out of the shower and dries off ::
(21:18:26) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO, XO: Ten, nine, eight...
(21:18:33) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Sits cross-legged on the end of a biobed attempting origami with a malleable sheet of metal, the medbay quiet at the beginning of his shift::
(21:18:47) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Atlantis pops out into an empty area of space.
(21:19:16) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO, XO: Normal space achieved. Drift is... my station is losing power.
(21:19:57) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Before a response can be given to that information, the ship shakes as if we hit something substantial, throwing everything about and causing power losses all over the place.
(21:20:24) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: in the science lab, running over the collected data with the specialized equipment. Is rather surprised when she is tossed away from the station, which promptly loses power ::
(21:20:35) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: TAC_1Lt_Skrewi> :: tries to raise shields and can't. ::
(21:20:53) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: sets aside the external scans and activates internal sensors, looking for a cause ::
(21:20:54) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: secures herself to her seat with all fours, on alert ::
(21:21:14) CO_CaptHarper: :: tumbles forward out of her chair, not expecting the sudden jolt, then stands :: All: Report!
(21:21:24) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she was in a corridor, and feels the jolt, and runs up towards the bridge ::
(21:22:02) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: rights herself and moves towards the station, opening up a panel to check and see if anything inside is damaged and thus caused the power loss ::
(21:22:06) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: pounds on her console in frustration, as if that will some how stop the power loss that's keeping her from seeing the readings ::
(21:22:06) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: feels the ship shake, sees the lights flash, and jumps out of the sonic shower, still covered in soap, and dries off as fast as he can. He jumps into the least of his uniform he can get away with wearing and runs out the door and to the Turbolift ::
(21:22:19) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Propulsion and navigation offline, helm console barely online, helm officer unhurt.
(21:22:25) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: pokes at her console, but it's flickering in and out ::
(21:22:49) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: pulls out her PADD and tries to access internal scanners that way ::
(21:22:58) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Antennae twitch, as he starts checking over the systems, hunkering down into his console.::
(21:22:58) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she enters the turbolift the same time as Wolfe :: Self: What the actual shit was that?!
(21:23:19) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Squeaks as he tumbles off the bed, landing on his feet. He jogs over to a terminal, eyeing the flashing screen and unable to make contact with the bridge::
(21:24:31) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: TAC_1Lt_Skrewi> :: tries to activate Red Alert, but it's not working either. Not that he thinks anyone needs the alert at this point. ::
(21:24:49) CO_CaptHarper: :: looks arounds the bridge to see if any consoles are displaying anything useful ::
(21:24:52) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: frustrated, looks out the nearest porthole, trying to get a look outside ::
(21:25:12) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: attempts to use combadge to contact the bridge, only to have it uselessly blep ::
(21:25:21) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: enters and turns to face the doors as is procedure. :: Computer: Bridge. :: looks down at Jude :: SCI2_ We'll find out soon enough.
(21:26:09) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: rapidly taps combadge, it just blepblepblepblep'ing :: Self: Fuck!
(21:26:25) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: TAC_1Lt_Skrewi> :: is unable to do much of anything with a blank console. ::
(21:26:45) CO_CaptHarper: :: crosses back to Ilaihr :: ENG: Can you get a damage report?
(21:26:55) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: notes that the TL is not moving :: SCI2: It's not far. We should climb it.
(21:27:27) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: looks up at Wolfe :: CTO: Agreed. I'll follow.
(21:27:43) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: finds nothing to be damaged and frowns, moving to contact engineering, only to find that communications were down ::
(21:27:51) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CSO: Check the windows out the conference room!
(21:27:51) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: steps out of the Turbolift, Jude in tow, and makes his way to the nearest Jeffries Tube access point. He pulls off the cover and throws it aside, leading the way to the nearest ladder. ::
(21:28:02) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Turns and sees a few people enter sickbay with bumps and bruises and two or three with gashes on their forehead. He jumps to action, directing patients to beds and assigning other staff:: Stick to manual. Tech is too unreliable right now.
(21:29:03) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she rapidly walks behind, Wolfe, and dodges the cover, before climbing in ::
(21:29:26) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: doesn't see anything out the window, is about to try something else until she hears Kuari's voice :: XO: Aye, sir! :: walks quickly to conference room doors, which open partway, but pauses to manually override them to stay open so she doesn't get stuck on the other side ::
(21:29:47) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::His antennae twitch more energetically.:: Self: Curious. CO: Power fluctuations all over the ship. No discernable source...
(21:29:57) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: finds the right ladder for the Bridge and starts up it. :: SCI2: This way.
(21:30:38) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CTO: Aye. :: she follows behind him ::
(21:31:01) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: cranes her neck upward to look out the dorsal porthole. Not seeing much from down here, she flies up to it to get a better look, but there's nothing to hold onto and she can only get glimpses ::
(21:31:50) CO_CaptHarper: :: turns back toward the center of the bridge to see Kuari flying up to the window ::
(21:32:05) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: finally gets into the conference room and looks out at the blackness of space from the larger window, peering around in an attempt to see evidence of some anomaly ::
(21:33:32) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: returns to the Bridge, disappointed :: CO/XO: I just saw normal space. Stars and stuff.
(21:33:36) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: I have been unable to regain attitude control. We are drifting aimlessly.
(21:34:50) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Another jolt rocks the ship, harder this time, throwing people and coffee cups around all over the place, and disrupts power even more severely. A hull breach is recorded on the starboard edge of the saucer.
(21:35:25) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: TAC_1Lt_Skrewi> :: tries to tap his screen, and then tries banging on the console to see if anything can work. Then, he feels the jolt and hangs on for life ::
(21:35:45) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she almost falls down the Jefferies Tube, but catches a rung of the ladder halfway down ::
(21:35:58) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: is thrown into the wall, accidentally pulling several wires out of the console in the process ::
(21:35:59) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: just before the jolt :: ENG: Have you.. have you tried turning it off and on again? :: the ship is jolted and she is thrown against the bulkhead from her standing position ::
(21:36:18) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: grabs onto a rung just in time, and reaches down and grabs Jude to steady her as she looks like she starts to fall ::
(21:36:35) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: is about to land as the ship rocks, and she manages to flap back into the air and avoid the wall, then lands a moment later ::
(21:37:10) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: regains her footing and clutches her now-bruised left arm :: Self: It was just a suggestion.
(21:37:25) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she grabs the ladder with both hands, and says to no one in particular :: Praise the four deities.
(21:37:33) CO_CaptHarper: :: thrown forward against her own chair, catching herself with it ::
(21:38:10) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Stumbles from the jolt and hits his temple on a biobed frame, vision swimming for a few moments. Shakes of the nurse coming to help and instructs them to secure the patients to the beds and prepare for more to come.::
(21:38:24) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CTO: Thanks.
(21:38:27) CSO_LCdr_Wright: All: Is something hitting us from the outside, or is this all internal?
(21:39:30) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Holds tightly to the console again. He scans the area with his mind, as he continues to monitor the DR.:: CO: A hull breach is forming in the starboard saucer section.
(21:39:31) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: I wish we knew. ENG: Damage?
(21:39:31) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: finds she ended up behind Tactical instead of the center of the Bridge where she intended. She checks the Tactical console, but it's still not functioning correctly and she looks for the Tactical crewman ::
(21:39:35) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: lets go since Jude has steadied herself, then keeps climbing. :: SCI2: And THAT is why you lost.
(21:39:49) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: stumbles back to her console, attempting to determine the status of the warp core ::
(21:40:37) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she continues climbing :: CTO: Gee.
(21:40:54) CO_CaptHarper: ENG: DC teams to deck ten, starboard. Get power to the helm and maneuvering thrusters.
(21:41:35) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: her console still flickers unpredictably, and she quickly abandons it in favor of her tricorder, attempting to get local readings ::
(21:41:36) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CO: A hull breach suggests that's where we hit something.
(21:41:48) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CO: Maybe we could see something out a porthole that way.
(21:42:19) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: wilts :: All: Not that we could do much about it at the moment, apparently.
(21:42:31) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO, XO: Our trajectory changed after that jolt. We must have hit something.
(21:43:15) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: TAC_Skrewi> CO, XO: But damned if I could figure out what it was.
(21:43:33) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Is already distributing teams around, still listening for something out there.::
(21:45:47) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: opens the hatch from the Jeffries Tube to the Conference Room, stands up, and offers his hand to assist Jude the last couple steps. ::
(21:46:05) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO, XO: Our motion is uncontrolled, tumbling on all axes. If we hit something, we could hit something else soon at this rate.
(21:46:10) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks up from her tricorder :: CO: From this distance I'm not positive, but based on tricorder readings, I think warp core containment may be slowly deteriorating. Recommend getting bodies down there to help.
(21:46:33) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she grabs his hand, and pulls herself into the conference room ::
(21:46:40) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CTO: Thanks.
(21:46:58) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: not getting anything from where she's standing and feeling somewhat caged, calms herself and returns to her chair, where she can at least weather another collision. Her duty is to stay in command ::
(21:47:30) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: closes the hatch, then turns and walks toward the door to the Bridge ::
(21:47:34) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CO: We should have all crew not essential to being mobile brace for further impacts.
(21:47:43) CO_CaptHarper: :: looks at Wright with alarm, then snaps her head around to Ilaihr :: ENG: Status of the core?
(21:47:44) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she walks behind Wolfe, and onto the bridge :: CTO: I could have beat you, if I didn't slip.
(21:48:02) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CO: Possibly move towards the interior of the ship?
(21:48:49) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: hears Wright and stops talking, looking to Harper for orders ::
(21:48:50) CO_CaptHarper: XO: Make an announcement to stay braced for impact at all times, if possible.
(21:49:01) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: SCI2: I still would have won if you hadn't. :: takes his station. ::
(21:49:11) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO/XO: I don't think the shipwide communication systems have power, Captain, Commander Kuari, but I can try.
(21:49:20) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: also stands at her station :: CTO: You don't know that.
(21:49:22) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Redistributes power around, trying to reignite the thrusters and get the NAV running again.::
(21:50:02) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Antennae twitch again, as he pulls core data up.::
(21:51:03) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO/XO: Shall I do so? Do we need to briefly divert power to shipwide comms?
(21:51:21) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Atlantis tumbles end-over-end through space. Fortunately, the inertial dampeners are still powered.
(21:51:47) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CO/XO: I don't think diverting power is necessary. The crew probably knows to do so, and the power should be allocated to more essential systems.
(21:52:22) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: attempts to restart his terminal, even running a local hard reset. ::
(21:52:58) CO_CaptHarper: XO: Agreed. I would rather the helm get power back and remove the need.
(21:53:16) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she looks around, and gently kicks her station. and- it doesn't work. naturally. ::
(21:53:21) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CSO: You can try, though.
(21:53:39) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CSO: With the power comms already have.
(21:54:03) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Whispers to the ship.:: Self: What is it, girl? What has hurt you?
(21:54:24) CO_CaptHarper: :: heads back to Ilaihr's console :: ENG: Any time estimate on that helm power?
(21:54:25) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: uses her PADD to try to command the computer to display a message at all operational major terminals, that reads "All hands - take cover and brace for impact at all times. Move to interior cabins whenever possible." ::
(21:55:07) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The message displays on about half the consoles on the ship.
(21:55:19) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: watches Harper go to Ilaihr, power to Navigation the only thing she can think to do, and hopes they don't hit anything as she hangs onto her seat ::
(21:55:31) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: then attempts to convey the same message verbally via shipwide comms, repeating it several times ::
(21:56:43) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Organises the patients in sickbay to be triaged, focusing on those with breaks and gashes first and those with minor bruises and scrapes were either secured or sent back to their post at their request. A female ensign brings the message to his attention and leaves to spread it through the crew on the same deck.::
(21:57:12) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CO: I am unsure, Captain... ::His mind wanders, as he mumbles thoughts to himself.::
(21:57:53) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> A third jolt rocks the ship, about the same severity as the last. Another small hull breach opens on the port side of the saucer, and the inertia from the sudden change in direction strains the dampeners almost to their breaking point.
(21:59:03) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: feels the jolt and really wishes he had a good way to raise the ship's shields.
(21:59:08) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she grabs her terminal :: All: What the fuck?!
(21:59:10) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: is struck with an idea :: All: Can we use those three impact points and our inertial data to try to get an idea of what we're hitting?
(21:59:14) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: grips her seat tightly, waiting it out ::
(21:59:14) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Keeps trying to get those thrusters working; the nav console is mute, if he cant get them working.::
(21:59:15) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: had managed to get back to the console, but now finds herself meeting the wall again, this time landing on her left arm, which definitely hurts, but she has things to do, it can wait ::
(21:59:29) CO_CaptHarper: :: lets out an elaborate stream of Trill profanity as she's thrown into the console ::
(21:59:38) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CSO: Actually, that doesn't seem like a bad idea.
(22:00:17) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: still sitting at her station, having fastened her seatbelt ::
(22:00:54) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Yes, if you have the computer power to calculate it, do it.
(22:00:59) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: Self: Gravametric distortion... subspatial sheer... dark matter cluster...
(22:01:36) XO_LCdr_Kuari: ENG: ...things we don't want to be hitting.
(22:01:37) CO_CaptHarper: ENG: Alright, lieutenant, we need to stop moving, and soon.
(22:02:15) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: her console is still on the fritz, but uses her tricorder to supplement power, knowing it won't last long, and starts plugging in data points to build the equation ::
(22:02:49) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Is glad all patient and staff were secure when the next jolt hit. Two off duty crew members rush in, carrying the female ensign from earlier who appears to have a growing bruise on her forehead. Doctors rush to their aid and stabilise her in one of the beds.::
(22:03:03) CO_CaptHarper: :: heads back to the center seat and sits, fastening her own belt ::
(22:03:18) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: Self: ...Cosmic string... ::Frowns.:: ...A siphon beam...
(22:03:49) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Can't get the engines running again.::
(22:04:12) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: stares at Ilaihr, getting a tad freaked out ::
(22:04:41) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: quickly pulling inertial data from the nav computers to plug those number in as well, along with timing and a few guesses ::
(22:05:43) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Makes sure the staff can handle his absence as he packs a few medkits. He directs a handful of people to take them and spread out through the ship, making sure to be careful. Warily, he exits sickbay and heads to the bridge.::
(22:06:00) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks at what the computer returns with and frowns, wondering if she may have guessed incorrectly... makes some adjustments and calculates again ::
(22:06:22) CO_CaptHarper: :: idly working her left wrist back and forth where she caught herself :: ENG: Lieutenant? :: the tone in her voice a bit more urgent ::
(22:06:39) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she looks over her own console to look at Wright's :: CSO: What is it?
(22:07:34) CSO_LCdr_Wright: SCI2: ...Well... it looks like... we hit... three separate things? This is not helpful at all.
(22:08:25) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: her face twists to an expression of frustration :: CSO: I don't like this.
(22:08:31) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Goes sort of blank for a moment, before crossing the bridge, and simply hitting the nav console with his cane. It powers back up, and he returns to his seat. The lights flicker a moment as the manoeuvring thrusters start to finally kick in.::
(22:08:42) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: sticks to her seat, feeling useless as her console blinks in front of her. She pokes it a few times with the tip of her pointy lips experimentally ::
(22:09:17) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: drily :: SCI2: I do believe that is a popular opinion.
(22:09:24) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: stares incredulously at what just happened to his console for a second, then methodically begins checking :: CO: I have thrusters!
(22:09:40) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: All stop.
(22:10:11) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Says something to the ship, in an alien tongue.::
(22:10:11) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks up at Navarro and actually grins, sighing in relief ::
(22:10:18) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: shakes her head incredulously :: Self: Engineers.
(22:10:47) SCI2_Ens_Jude: Self: Praise the four deities...
(22:10:51) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Stares at the ladder nervously, feeling cold seep under his skin. He hadn't had a chance to talk through his fear with Kuari since the holodeck incident since they were both so busy. What propelled him to start climbing was the thought of possible injured crew mates. He climbed fast.::
(22:11:04) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Aye, that will take a little longer than usual, stand by. :: begins using the thrusters to arrest their axial rotation, the lack of spin making it easier to stop translating ::
(22:11:17) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Prefers to be the one Ilaihr.::
(22:11:51) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The Atlantis's tumble slows and then comes to a stop.
(22:12:12) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Rates nulled, stopping our forward motion. :: thrusting retro :: All stop.
(22:12:52) CO_CaptHarper: All: Alright. Now we know that we will not be hitting anything else, but we still have to consider that something may hit us.
(22:12:52) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: has disconnected the tricorder from her console, conserving what charge remains ::
(22:13:13) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: releases her death grip on her seat, thinking her claws might have actually damaged it, but tells herself it's the least of their problems and stands up. CO: I'm going to take another look towards our stern.
(22:13:22) CO_CaptHarper: :: nods to Kuari ::
(22:13:46) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: turns to Navarro :: NAV: What is our orientation relative to slipstream exit?
(22:13:48) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: trots past Wolfe and squeezes through the conference room doors ::
(22:14:12) CO_CaptHarper: All: I want these power problems worked methodically. Get power to the warp containment field and the external sensors as priorities.
(22:15:01) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: would normally show Wright such a thing with the holoprojector, but can't, so he illustrates with his hands, slipstream exit being his left fist, and Atlantis his right hand ::
(22:15:05) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Reaches the top with little hassle until he reaches the hatch. He struggles to open it while clinging to his medkit, so he bangs on it heavily.:: Anyone within earshot: Hey! Can someone open up? It would be good to know y'all are alright up there! ::Laughs nervously::
(22:15:06) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CSO: About like this?
(22:15:54) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> DC teams on deck ten have contained both breaches with no one lost.
(22:16:03) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she runs to the hatch, opening it :: MED: Look what the cat dragged in.
(22:16:07) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Goes back to scanning the abyss with his mind, looking for any kind of echo out there.::
(22:16:14) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: spends a few moments closely inspecting the way his hands are oriented and nods, quickly tapping corrections into her model :: NAV: Thanks.
(22:16:53) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: is looking out the windows, eyes searching the stars greedily ::
(22:17:11) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CSO: Of course. :: maintains a stable attitude and watches out for that power fluctuation that preceded the first collision ::
(22:17:25) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: notes that her console has made an attempt at regaining power despite its missing parts. Looking around, she sees that other consoles have regained power, so clearly whatever the issue was has been resolved. She goes to access another console, but finds it difficult to move her arm. That may prove to be an issue ::
(22:17:56) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: attempting to build a more accurate model, hoping to then fill it in with external sensor data as soon as it's available ::
(22:18:27) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Tries to check the polarity of the antimatter containment field, checking out a theory.::
(22:18:38) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she reaches down :: MED: Grab on.
(22:18:44) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Snorts:: SCI2: I come bearing gifts. ::Lifts medkit, glad to be away from the ladder.:: All: Anyone need immediate medical assistance or shall I prey on someone at random?
(22:19:07) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: can't get a weapons lock on anything. On the good side of things, his console has gone from totally blank to now flashing once in a while with information that could prove useful if it would just stay on the screen long enough to be fully digested. ::
(22:19:42) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: goes back to her console, which still doesn't work ::
(22:19:54) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: ignoring what she's sure will be a massive bruise on her left arm later, fairly confident that only the soft tissue is damaged. ::
(22:20:22) CO_CaptHarper: :: since they're not moving, she decides to take the risk and undo her seatbelt to stand ::
(22:20:31) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: Self: Quantum filament... maybe...
(22:21:10) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: doesn't see anything out of the ordinary at all and, disappointed, eagerly returns to the Bridge to see if they know anything new ::
(22:21:19) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: re-attaches her tricorder partway through her data entry, as the console begins to flicker again ::
(22:22:01) MED_Ens_Velekh: SCI2: You got any injuries, Linxi?
(22:22:01) CO_CaptHarper: :: absent-mindly working her wrist as she ends up back at engineering again, really wanting to know about the warp core containment ::
(22:22:10) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::The polarity of the containment field has shifted.:: Aloud:: Oh dear...
(22:22:31) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: notes Velekh coming onto the Bridge, promising herself she'll get treatment ... in a minute ::
(22:22:41) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: head snaps toward's Ilaihr :: ENG: What is it?
(22:23:45) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: All: We hit a three quantum filaments.
(22:24:24) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CO: We are in a perilous place...
(22:24:32) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: actually turns around in her seat to look at him, as if that'll somehow make what he said any less alarming ::
(22:24:54) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Notes Alexis' glance towards him and heads towards her:: CSO: Everything alright? ::Already pulling out one of his tricorders::
(22:24:56) CO_CaptHarper: :: looks toward Ilaihr :: ENG: They are difficult to detect, but with some sensor reconfiguration, it should be possible, yes?
(22:26:03) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: stands just inside the Bridge, looking at Ilaihr. Yep, that's news, all right ::
(22:26:33) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CO: They are extremely difficult to detect. And also incredibly rare.
(22:26:35) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: tears her eyes away from Ilaihr and looks at Velekh :: MED: Oh, hi, doc. My left arm got a little banged up, but it's not a pressing problem. :: somewhat absently, already thinking about how to reconfigure the sensors ::
(22:27:12) XO_LCdr_Kuari: ENG: In explored space, anyway.
(22:27:20) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: unable to do anything on his console anyway, just watches and listens to the conversation going on around him ::
(22:27:31) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: XO: Hundreds, if not thousands of metres or even kilometres long... no mass...
(22:27:33) XO_LCdr_Kuari: ENG: :: suggests :: Maybe they're more common here?
(22:28:08) CO_CaptHarper: ENG: Then we need to get out of here. We will need to be able to plot a safe course away from these filaments, though.
(22:28:12) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: trots closer, to the center of the Bridge ::
(22:29:45) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: I can reconfigure the sensors to detect them, I think, once they're online again.
(22:30:34) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Work with Major Wolfe on that. Their subspace distortions might be something our tactical sensors can handle.
(22:30:50) XO_LCdr_Kuari: ENG/CO: Do the filaments move? Are we safe when stationary?
(22:31:37) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: head snaps towards Wolfe, then back at the Engineering console ::
(22:32:14) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: transfers the model render to her PADD, unbuckles her seatbelt, and walks over to TAC with purpose ::
(22:33:58) MED_Ens_Velekh: CSO: Don't mind me then. :: Pulls out a small hypo and a hand-held tool to reduce the bruise. Hypo's twice next to the bruise and gets to work with the device. It takes no longer than 30 seconds.:: All done. ::Grins at her before narrowing his eyes in Kathryn's direction::
(22:34:33) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Goes quiet, his fingers waving in the air, as if he's knitting, or manipulating a marionette.:: All: They are essentially tugging at the core, like magnets. Destabilising containment. ::Hums.:: Not alot is known of them. We may be able to detect them directly with sensors at full...
(22:34:59) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: stops in her tracks, having forgotten Velekh standing next to her, and lets herself be healed :: MED: Thanks, doc. :: sheepishly ::
(22:36:19) CO_CaptHarper: ENG: How long until containment fails?
(22:37:07) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: stands and watches and listens to Ilaihr ::
(22:37:27) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: awaits Wright's arrival at his console, moving over to make a bit of space for when she can get up here. He's still trying to get SOME sort of cooperation out of his console. ::
(22:38:13) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Grins at Alexis and throws her a wink:: CSO: Got your back. ::Puts away his equipment and heads to Captain Harper, trying not to get in the way of anything:: CO: Can I see your wrist?
(22:38:54) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: her arm now feeling much better, continues on her way to Wolfe :: CTO: Okay, let's try to configure tactical sensors with these parameters....
(22:39:28) CO_CaptHarper: :: starts away from her focus on Ilaihr and the engineering console :: MED: Oh, yes. I caught myself hard with it. :: offers her left wrist to the doctor, still intent on engineering ::
(22:40:42) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: bangs on the top of his console, which actually gets it to light up for a full second for the first time since the first hit :: CSO: Here's what we have to work with. Any ideas? I've run a full reset. Perhaps there's a console in the Armory that works full-time.
(22:41:48) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CTO: I've been giving mine a boost with my tricorder, it doesn't last long, but it's better than nothing. Mine's about tapped out, though. Do you have one?
(22:42:11) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CO: An hour. Maybe more. If the filaments are moving, encircling us, pulling the core towards them in all directions... less.
(22:42:16) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: is attracted to Wolfe's banging on his console ::
(22:42:34) CO_CaptHarper: ENG: OK, get power to sensors. We have to get away from them.
(22:42:39) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CSO: No, but I do have this. :: pulls his phaser from its holster ::
(22:42:46) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: shouts behind her :: CSO/CTO: I do!
(22:43:41) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks at phaser, then at Jude :: CTO: Either way, really, though a tricorder is more designed for that kind of thing than a phaser is.
(22:44:15) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Nods. If the sensors can't see them, maybe they can see secondary effects caused around the filament.::
(22:44:42) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: opens a panel in the handle of his phaser revealing connectors to the power source. :: CSO: This'll work just fine.
(22:45:13) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CTO: Don't break anything. :: snorts ::
(22:45:17) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: casts an apologetic glance at Linxi :: CTO: Oh, okay then.
(22:45:30) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Takes the wrist gently in one paw, careful not to jar it. After scanning it with a tricorder he frowns, trying to keep it steady.:: CO: Looks like you've got a slight fracture there, Captain. Shouldn't be too much hassle. ::Fishes an osteogenic stimulator from his bag::
(22:46:02) CO_CaptHarper: :: nods disinterestedly at the doctor ::
(22:46:29) CO_CaptHarper: :: more worried about her ship than her wrist ::
(22:46:57) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: gives Jude a snarky, dirty look ::
(22:47:28) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: waits for him to plug it in, deciding that this is not the right time to make a comment about him sacrificing his sidearm ::
(22:48:01) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she scrunches her nose at him, and smirks ::
(22:48:06) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: sits down on the floor in the middle of the Bridge, waiting to be useful and just watches everyone ::
(22:48:16) CSO_LCdr_Wright: SCI2: This is not the time or place. :: quietly ::
(22:49:26) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CSO: Fiine.
(22:49:27) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Runs the device slightly above the skin of her wrist for a good few seconds before setting it down and hypo-ing the area with anaesthetic:: CO: This might be a tad uncomfortable, Captain. ::Sets a brace around her wrist and forearm, unable to avoid the slight jar to the injury.::
(22:50:12) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks at the girl incredulously, wondering if she doesn't realize how dire the situation is, before turning back to Wolfe, impatiently checking whether he's finished ::
(22:50:17) CO_CaptHarper: :: winces and frowns at the brace ::
(22:50:39) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: opens up a panel on the side of the console, pulls out a coiled cable, and plugs it into the phaser, which lights up the console and gets it working. :: CSO: Looks like we're ready to play.
(22:50:51) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CTO: Let's act fast, then.
