(21:15:32) CO_CaptHarper: :: winces and frowns at the brace on her left wrist :: MED: How long will I have to wear this, doc?
(21:16:24) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: is under the console, breaking apart the phaser's power cell to connect it into Tactical Console 1. After a few moments, some sparks fly, and the console lights up. He rolls out and stands up quickly. :: CSO, SCI2: There we go. :: gives Jude another dirty look ::
(21:17:31) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: raises hands :: CTO: Proved me wrong, for the five billionth time.
(21:18:16) MED_Ens_Velekh: :: Considers :: CO: No more than two days. As long as you don't give anyone a huge high-five, it's gonna be just fine. *Gives a reassuring smile before packing up his bag* Any other injuries?
(21:18:21) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: grins ::
(21:18:22) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: SCI2: Always.
(21:18:50) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: busily monitors station operations from her console ::
(21:18:55) CO_CaptHarper: :: manages a grateful smile despite the annoying brace :: MED: No, and thank you, doctor.
(21:19:11) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: is trying to figure out how to get this console going so she can figure out what's going on, despite the fact that her arm is repeatedly refusing to cooperate ::
(21:21:42) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: holds the PADD with the configuration parameters out :: CTO: Do you want to do this, or shall I?
(21:21:58) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::is busy running around sickbay patching up incoming casualties from the ship being tossed around::
(21:22:50) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Darts around the bridge fluidly, trying to cause minimal disturbance, before coming to a stop:: SCI2: You alright, Linxi?
(21:22:56) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Main power goes offline, briefly plunging the ship into darkness before the auxiliary power takes over and brings up the emergency lights. The auxiliary power systems are just as sporadic as the mains.
(21:23:28) SCI2_Ens_Jude: MED: I think s- :: looks around :: Oh fuck.
(21:23:36) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CSO: By all means, go ahead.
(21:23:43) CO_CaptHarper: :: forgets about her wrist as the lights go down and come back up red :: ENG: Lieutenant?
(21:24:04) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: decides over the last five minutes she's getting nothing done at her console and hops off her chair, beginning a round of the Bridge to see what the crew is doing ::
(21:24:12) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: :: grumbles a bit as the power goes out.. she was in the middle of running a complete scan on a patient, and now she has to start it over again ::
(21:24:24) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CTO: We need to... Okay. Just keep that power coupling stable, if you would, Major. :: steps up and begins entering the parameters in the unfamiliar console as she speaks ::
(21:24:49) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: looks around as the mains go down and the auxiliary power systems kick in. This is most definitely something to be concerned about. Quickly, she dashes off a message and pulls what power she can from the console to punch it through ::
(21:25:48) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: sees Wright and Wolfe at Tactical, then moves on ::
(21:26:13) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CSO: Aye. :: opens up a rarely-used window on his console that shows power draw, and watches to make sure it maintains proper power levels ::
(21:26:19) CO_CaptHarper: :: moves back toward the engineering console in hopes of news ::
(21:26:19) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: Computer: Computer! Do we have comms yet? :: both looking and feeling a bit frazzled, and is hobbling from getting knocked around like everyone else, but hasn't had time to do anything about it ::
(21:28:22) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Captain. Can we divert auxiliary power to tactical sensors long enough for a quick burst? This is almost ready to go. :: doesn't look up from her work ::
(21:29:11) CO_CaptHarper: ENG: Divert what power we have to the tactical sensors.
(21:29:40) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::does an experimental badge tap:: *Bridge*: Bridge, can you get me an update on when we get the power back down here?
(21:29:55) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Is barely fazed by the lights and runs a quick scan over Linxi:: SCI2: Got a minor injury on your leg... No point letting that hang around, is there? ::He gives her a small grin before pulling a dermal regenerator from his bag::
(21:30:02) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Is seemingly having a conversation with himself, in some bizarre language, although the word 'Tholian' can be heard.::
(21:30:16) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: notices a slight drain in power. Nothing excessive, and well within normal parameters, but he still walks away a moment to grab another phaser, just in case. When he arrives back at the console, he begins opening up the second phaser to access the power supply ::
(21:30:16) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Tailor's comm returns naught but static.
(21:30:36) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: feels the weight of command weighing on her, the lack of ship response making her feel like she's caged, and she wants to get her hands dirty doing something physical to fix the ship, but she instead returns to her station and tries to put her mind to task following the bridge crew's conversation ::
(21:31:10) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ENG: Is the reroute ready, Lieutenant?
(21:31:13) SCI2_Ens_Jude: MED: I'm fine. :: beat. she sighs :: MED: Fine.
(21:31:18) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Diverts power to the sensors as the captain asked.::
(21:31:27) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Is currently crawling his best crawl somewhere off behind one of the science labs, at the head of a team of three. He can't coordinate anything without comms, so he's left his best available people back in engineering to scrounge power wherever they can find it while he makes for Shuttlebay 1. ::
(21:31:43) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: :: frowns at her badge :: Self: I guess we're stuck for the time being.. :: goes back to triaging incoming patients and checking on that biobed scan ::
(21:31:45) CO_CaptHarper: :: Ilaihr does not seem to have heard her, but she sees him rerouting power like she asked :: CSO: There, you have power. Make it count.
(21:32:17) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Aye, Captain. :: simultaneously sees the sensor array light up on the console, and immediately initiates scans :: CO: Scan initiated.
(21:33:15) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Four subspace signatures can be seen around the ship, three moving away from us and one toward us.
(21:33:33) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Grins:: SCI2: Thant's the spirit. ::He heals the scrape and bruise in under a minute and does a last minute scan for anything else:: SCI2: All clear. Good luck. ::He gestures at her console with a quick smile::
(21:34:37) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: panicky, tries to send the picture to the NAV console :: ALL: Three outbound, one inbound at two-o-clock!
(21:34:59) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: Thrusters!
(21:35:22) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: clings to her chair ::
(21:35:27) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: grabs hold of her flickering console ::
(21:35:46) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Stands and turns, spotting Kuari and beginning to moving over::
(21:35:50) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: applies the thrusters since it's all they have left for propulsion, and the ship slowly begins to move out of the path of the incoming filament ::
(21:36:24) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Even with our abysmal acceleration on thrusters, we should clear the fourth filament.
(21:37:30) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Initiate a sensor burst like that every five minutes. ENG: Ensure the power is available to do so on that schedule; reroute as needed at other times.
(21:38:29) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Keeps an eye on the telemetry, still upholding the conversation with himself; tetryon being the only discernable word this time.::
(21:38:33) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: nods to herself, liking Harper's plan, then noticed Velekh's approach ::
(21:38:55) CEO_LtQuinn: ::Having had to divert his path twice so as to avoid electrical fires, and just made it to the ladder, Quinn screams unmanfully as the ship lurches harshly and he just barely manages to hold on and so avoid plummeting to his death. :: Monkey balls!
(21:39:10) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: begins timer on her PADD :: CO: Aye, Captain. Timer started.
(21:39:38) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CTO: We should conserve power, then.
(21:40:40) CEO_LtQuinn: Price, Gant! You two okay?
(21:41:30) CEO_LtQuinn: Price> ::Grumbles in his accustomed "I'm doing you assholes a favor by even showing up to work sober" way.:: Well, there's a quandry. Got an hour?
(21:42:13) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Gives Kuari a concerned look:: XO: You alright, Kuari?
(21:42:18) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: stops thrusters once their momentum gives them a large margin of safety to avoid the filament :: CO: We will be clear of the filament, Captain.
(21:42:55) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: nods to Velekh :: MED: I am. No injuries.
(21:43:11) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: Thank you. All stop whrn clear.
(21:43:20) CEO_LtQuinn: Gant> Shut up, Sam. That was no random lurch, sir. Thruster fire! Someone's alive up on the bridge!
(21:43:29) CEO_LtQuinn: ::Under his breath:: For now.
(21:43:45) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CSO: Aye. I'll also have several more phasers brought up. :: nods off to a Marine who leaves the Bridge in search of some phasers. He calls out after them :: Marine Ralks: Make sure you bring some rifles, too.
(21:43:55) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: Ralks> Aye, Sir.
(21:45:06) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: :: turns her attention to a lieutenant with a particularly nasty gash and several third degree burns from getting thrown from an exploding console :: Nurse Jenkins: This one is stabilised enough for surgery.. get her into prep..
(21:45:08) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: as they clear the filament, he applies retro-thrust to slow to a stop ::
(21:45:22) CEO_LtQuinn: ::And then, louder.:: The good news is that we're going down! Hopefully in a controlled fashion. Six decks pops us out by the pilot's quarters, even if we have to cut our way out. And then, with luck, we'll fine the mooring clamps have kept the shuttles in place and in good working order.
(21:45:37) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Gives a relieved smile:: XO: Good to hear. Any idea on what hit us out there? ::Pulls out a tricorder and tilts his head as if asking permission to do a scan to double check::
(21:46:27) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: checks the timer :: CTO/ENG/CO: One minute to sensor burst.
(21:46:45) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Thinks all the comforting thoughts that that possibility carries with it to distract himself from the very real danger of another violent jolt. :: Working sensors, site to site transport, power...God, power.
(21:47:05) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: All stop. :: really hopes there's no need for a second round of slow acceleration ::
(21:47:34) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: doesn't shy away from the scanner :: MED: Quantum filaments. We're scanning to avoid them now, but no guarantees. Tell everyone you come across to keep as steady as they can until we give the all clear.
(21:47:52) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CTO/ENG/CO: Thirty seconds, ready power routing.
(21:48:20) CO_CaptHarper: :: heads over to join the crowd at the tactical console to see what this looks like ::
(21:48:55) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she also shuffles over to the party at tactical ::
(21:49:59) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: turns her head to the side and with one eye notices the crowd gathering behind her, up at Tactical ::
(21:50:00) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: doesn't get any response, but the console lights up at the right time, so she initiates a second scan and restarts the timer ::
(21:50:28) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The scan shows four subspace distortions, moving away from Atlantis.
(21:50:42) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Runs a basic scan, not picking up anything out of the ordinary:: XO: All clear. I'll make sure to let them know. :Smiles before biting his lip as he slowly wanders off to treat someone else:: I must get a comm link to sickbay established... ::Worries about Tailor::
(21:50:52) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: :: turns her head to see a half dozen other walking wounded coming through the doors, sickbay's filling up fast.. ::
(21:50:52) CSO_LCdr_Wright: All: All four contacts are outbound. :: relieved ::
(21:51:16) CO_CaptHarper: :: looks at the distortions on the display, seemingly so harmless ::
(21:52:14) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Clears his throat and raises his voice:: All: Anyone else here on the bridge require medical attention?
(21:52:28) SCI2_Ens_Jude: All: Thank the four deities. :: continues to look at tactical console ::
(21:53:02) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: shakes her head at Velekh and smiles ::
(21:53:04) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: shakes his head at Velekh ::
(21:53:09) CEO_LtQuinn: :: At a sudden thought, orders a brief stop. Then, hooking his right arm through a ladder rung, he taps a few buttons on his holo-gauntlet. A moment later, a black utility rope with three hefty clips materializes in his hand. After some very careful squirming, he fastens one to his tool belt and tosses it up to Price. ::
(21:53:10) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: :: stops for a short break to do another experimental badge tap :: *Bridge*: Bridge, this is sickbay, do you read?
(21:53:10) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: Ralks> :: returns with a duffel bag filled with four phaser rifles and six handheld phasers, handing them off to Wolfe :: CTO: Here you go, sir.
(21:53:10) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Never requires medical attention, and continues doing whatever it is that he does on the bridge.::
(21:53:42) CEO_LtQuinn: Fasten yourselves in, just in case. So long as we stay together, we'll all be in range of my emitter.
(21:54:15) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: takes the duffel bag without saying a word and sets it below the console, out of the way of the gaggle of officers now surrounding it. ::
(21:54:34) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks for the comms on the TAC console :: *Sickbay* Dr. Tailor, Bridge here, we read you for now.
(21:55:33) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Get a casualty report while you have her.
(21:56:09) CEO_LtQuinn: :: With some tenuous measure of safety in place, Quinn orders his people to double time, and a few minutes later, some spirited kicking dislodges the access tube cover out onto deck 18! ::
(21:56:27) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Sickbay* Captain Harper is requesting a casualty report, Doctor.
(21:57:00) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: :: lets out a sigh of relief :: *CSO*: Good, comms are back up. We're swamped down here.. I'll send the full report if I get some spare time.
(21:57:07) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: does whatever a helm officer does when the ship can barely move ::
(21:57:23) CO_CaptHarper: :: overhears that sickbay is swamped, and frowns ::
(21:57:54) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Turns to Alexis:: CSO: And let her know I'm on my way back. ::Shudders at the thought of tackling the ladder again, put powers through it:: All: I'm leaving my medkit with Kuari incase anyone here needs it. ::Heads to the ladder::
(21:58:22) CO_CaptHarper: MED: Thank you for your help, doctor.
(21:58:25) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: turns towards Wright :: CSO: Anything I can do right now, considering my console is a bit... :: points to flickering science console ::
(21:58:55) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: :: keeps up with the triage, treating and sending back to duty those with minor injuries to keep beds cleared for those who need it.. ::
(21:59:03) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: receives the medkit and looks around, wondering ::
(21:59:27) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Sickbay* Velekh is on his way back after treating the injuries here. We're working on restoring power and services. Dancing with invisible spatial disturbances is risky business.
(22:00:06) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Leading the way with his emergency flashlight, Quinn summons his best stage voice. :: Hey! This is Quinn! Can anyone hear me?
(22:00:52) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: *CSO*: Good, we can use his help down here. Thank you Commander
(22:01:05) CO_CaptHarper: EnsHorowitz> This is Horowitz! Who da hell is Quinn?
(22:01:28) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Sickbay* Stay safe, and we'll do our best to get you powered up, Doctor
(22:01:54) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Climbs onto the ladder and begins the journey down, keeping his eyes firmly fixed on the wall infront of him, tail wrapped tightly around his waist::
(22:02:32) CO_CaptHarper: XO: If that comm from sickbay worked, see if you can get an update from Lt. Quinn.
(22:02:36) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: *CSO*: Thanks, and full power will be welcome.. Sickbay out.
(22:02:36) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Regrets his short temper...after the fact. In fairness, not his best day. :: I'm the guy who has to fix all this shit! If you can walk, get the hell out here!
(22:03:07) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: checks the timer :: CTO/ENG/CO: Almost time for another burst! Power up!
(22:03:10) CO_CaptHarper: Horowitz> Ah, right, whaddeva you say, pal!
(22:04:05) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: nods at Harper :: *CEO* Bridge to Quinn, do you read?
(22:04:48) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Diverts power again.::
(22:06:58) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Makes it down to deck 15 fairly quickly, wasting no time hanging around and rushing to sickbay to help Tailor::
(22:07:07) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: console lights up, initiates scan ::
(22:07:10) CO_CaptHarper: :: lingering around the tactical console for the scan ::
(22:07:16) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Jumps just a little at the unexpected voice coming from his chest. :: Small miracles...
(22:07:35) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The scan reveals the same four disturbances, farther away and still going.
(22:08:19) CEO_LtQuinn: ::Taps the badge: *XO* Commander Kuari! Yes, Quinn here! Glad to see something's finally working! Was that my guys or yours? Sorry, not important right now. Hi!
(22:08:30) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ALL: Still looks good.
(22:09:21) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: At least that is in our favor.
(22:10:03) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: :: sees Velekh rush through the doors :: MED: Good to have you back. How are things up on the bridge?
(22:10:25) CO_CaptHarper: :: strides back over to Ilaihr :: ENG: I need some more good news, lieutenant. There is still the matter of our warp core containment.
(22:11:14) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CEO* :: blinks :: We've managed to get a scan working to avoid the disturbances with thrusters causing the damage. How is Engineering? :: looks to Harper, hoping she's listening ::
(22:12:03) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: still being useless over here :: CSO: Soooo... What can I do?
(22:12:10) CO_CaptHarper: :: catches Kuari's glance and nods, multitasking ::
(22:12:37) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Takes a second to catalogue injuries before heading over to Velina:: CMO: Okay. Medically, Captain's wearing a brace to secure her wrist and there are little to no other injuries remaining. Power is still fluctuating, but, as you know some comms have been revived.
(22:13:02) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CO: I dont have much for you. The containment field is still there.
(22:13:57) CO_CaptHarper: ENG: Is it still deteriorating? We are moving away from the filaments, after all.
(22:14:15) CEO_LtQuinn: *XO* The only good news I can give is that it was more or less in one piece when I left it. But our anti-matter containment is degrading, and as is, all we can do is slow it down. But my team is coming up on Shuttlebay 1 now. If we can get one of those powered up, that should have all the tools I need to start making some real headway.
(22:14:21) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks up and notices Linxi :: SCI2: Think you can take over managing these scans every five minutes?
(22:14:25) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: :: looks around the main ward :: MED: We've been filling up.. mostly mild to moderate injuries, a few severe enough to require surgery. But I think it's finally starting to taper off now.
(22:14:57) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CO: They affect warp systems, much like isolytic weapons... It will take time to fully assess the damage.
(22:14:59) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CSO: Sure.
(22:15:28) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: notices enough of a dip and swtches out power cells, adding one into the system, then bringing it up to proper output, and reducing power intake from the old one simultaneously. ::
(22:15:45) CSO_LCdr_Wright: SCI2/ENG/CTO: I'll leave this to the three of you. Another one coming up in one minute.
(22:16:27) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *SCI* T'Lira, do you read me?
(22:16:36) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CSO: Aye. :: turns to Jude :: SCI2: Don't you dare dent my console.
(22:17:34) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: looks up from her tinkering with the console :: *CSO* I read you, Commander.
(22:17:53) CO_CaptHarper: ENG: Your last estimate was an hour or more, and that was almost an hour ago. How much time do we have?
(22:17:55) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *SCI* First, are you alright?
(22:17:58) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Nods:: CMO: What kind of man power are we looking at here? On my way over I managed to knock on a few doors and convince some nurses to start their shift early. They should be arriving soon.
(22:17:59) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CEO* You're using the shuttle's power to fix Atlantis' anti-matter containment?
(22:18:25) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: glances at her arm and promptly responds :: *CSO* Yes. I take it injuries are widespread?
(22:19:33) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CTO: Oh, don't worry. This console is tougher than you. :: snorts ::
(22:19:33) CO_CaptHarper: :: hears Kuari and turns in that direction ::
(22:19:47) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *SCI* Indeed. We seem to have encountered some quantum filaments that impacted the ship before we could see them. We're safe for the time being, but not out of the woods. How much do you know about quantum filaments?
(22:19:54) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CTO/ENG/CO: It's time. Powering up. :: initiates scan ::
(22:20:07) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: meets Harper's eyes as she listens ::
(22:20:19) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The scan reveals the same four subspace distortions, moving farther away.
(22:20:30) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: watches the console power draw for any abnormalities ::
(22:21:46) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: MED: Good idea. We are being stretched a little thin - I think I will have to also call in some doctors from gamma shift also. We're short on surgeons especially. I may have to scrub in myself..
(22:22:26) CEO_LtQuinn: *XO* It's...a little more involved than that. First, we need to perform a proper assessment of whether the EPS relays are even in adequate working order for that, and fix them if not...but ultimately, yes. That's the hope. Failing all else, working transporters will at least allow us to beam the warp core away to a safe distance before it blows.
(22:22:42) SCI_LCdr_TLira: *CSO* Quantum filaments? Not much is known about such anomalies, they have no mass and are very dangerous. I take it that is what we encountered?
(22:22:51) CEO_LtQuinn: *XO* ::Clears his throat awkwardly.:: Not that I intent to let it come to that, sir.
(22:23:40) CO_CaptHarper: :: frowns at Kuari's commbadge ::
(22:23:49) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *SCI* Indeed, four of them. Currently all moving away from us. We need to be able to plot a safe course away from here, but with the understanding that with limited power we'd be flying mostly blind.
(22:24:08) MED_Ens_Velekh: CMO: If you need to, I can handle things out here. I would offer to help with surgery, but I got a head injury before going up to the bridge and I don't trust myself with that just yet.
(22:24:44) SCI_LCdr_TLira: *CSO* Quite blind. I would recommend not charting any course for the time being, unless they change direction back towards us. If they are indeed moving away, we should be able to restore power before plotting a course.
(22:24:55) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CEO* Of course. Carry on. Now that we know comms are working, keep us updated. We're hoping to avoid anymore quantum filaments, but keep your teams alert anyway until we're in a better situation.
(22:25:12) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: checks timer :: CTO/ENG/CO: One minute.
(22:25:19) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *SCI* I don't know much about them either. Are there any cosmologists working in the labs down there that might know more? I'm concerned that remaining here will leave us exposed, if more of them decide to show up.
(22:26:04) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: looks around :: *CSO* I am the only one in the lab at the moment, but I can certainly check the roster for any scientists that specialize in cosmology and direct them towards the bridge.
(22:26:21) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: watches the console, waiting for it to light up, and initiates scan ::
(22:26:35) CEO_LtQuinn: *XO* Yes, sir. I hope it goes without saying that anything you can do to minimize your power consumption up there, would be good. My people are grabbing everything they can access, and it's still not enough.
(22:26:59) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Scan shows the same disturbances, moving away.... and another one inbound.
(22:27:30) SCI2_Ens_Jude: All: Oh shit, there's another one!
(22:27:57) CO_CaptHarper: :: spins to Tactical :: SCI2: Send the data to the helm.
(22:28:01) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CSO: The Tholians are probably the race with the most expertise in them.
(22:28:03) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::nods:: MED: So far so good, but I'll let you know. Do you want me to have a look at your head?
(22:28:07) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: Stand by thrusters.
(22:28:24) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CEO* Understood. We're pulling power to avoid more damage, that's all.
(22:28:33) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: taps on console, sending the data to nav ::
(22:28:50) CEO_LtQuinn: *XO* Good luck. Quinn out.
(22:29:02) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *SCI* With the power situation being as it is, I'm not sure what the best options are. :: stands, thinking, until Linxi's shout from nearby startles her :: There's another one inbound. Lieutenant Ilaihr suggests that Tholians might have expertise? I'm open to anything at this point.
(22:29:43) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Thrusters, aye. :: looks at the scan data and picks a direction based on the disturbance's vector ::
(22:30:29) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Gives a grateful smile but shakes his head:: CMO: There are more pressing matters to worry about, I'll be fine for now. Thank you, though. ::Tail finally relaxes from around his waist, brushing against her in a friendly manner when he turns to grab equipment::
(22:30:33) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: runs through possible scenarios :: *CSO* Is there anyone on the bridge who is capable of manually plotting a course without computer assistance? It may be possible to use thrusters to keep away from the filaments while we restore power.
(22:31:55) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Stops outside Shuttlebay 1 and does a guick scan of the interior with the same all purpose tool on his wrist. :: We have atmosphere...radiation is within safety tolerances. Thank God. Okay, let's get this door open. Horowitz, once we're in, get to the storage locker and break out the EV suits. We may not be so lucky everywhere.
(22:32:44) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *SCI* Lieutenant Navarro has been manually piloting us away from the filaments as we see them... power is so limited that we can only do a tactical sensor burst every five minutes or so. Engineering is focused on restoring warp core containment, I believe.
(22:32:56) CO_CaptHarper: Horowitz> :: legged it out of there when Quinn said to ::
(22:33:38) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: lifts an eyebrow :: *CSO* While that is not an ideal situation, it may have to do. I cannot think of any other course of action that would produce any measurable amount of success.
(22:33:43) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: hums, as she watches the timer :: CTO/ENG/CO: 45 seconds.
(22:34:06) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: ::satisfied that they'll miss it, he cuts thrusters :: CO: We are clear.
(22:34:24) CEO_LtQuinn: :: He said to "get out here". But he'll have to practice ripping underlings a new one later. ::
(22:34:53) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CSO: The Tholian's specialise in subspatial tears and interspatial rifts. Their technology is tetryon based...
(22:35:15) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: initiates scan, while dancing in place ::
(22:35:27) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Thanks God for manual controls, as the door reluctantly comes open in halting steps. :: Gant. I meant Gant, get those EV suits.
(22:35:42) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The scan shows the same five disturbances, and we are indeed clearing the new one.
(22:35:53) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: breathes a sigh of relief as they once again navigate to safety ::
(22:35:55) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *SCI* Understood. You're my most senior Science officer, and I trust your judgment, so if you think of anything, let me know. Meanwhile, please dispatch any science staff with secondary skillsets in Engineering to report to Lieutenant Quinn and offer assistance, and any cosmologists... :: glances at Ilaihr :: ...or Tholians to report to me.
(22:36:23) CO_CaptHarper: :: knows a few profane Tholian words, but doesn't think that'll help much ::
(22:36:55) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: :: nods at Velekh and smiles, continuing with her work. The tail thing's a little bit of a surprise, but maybe it's that he feels accepted here and in his element. :: Med: I'll continue with taking care of this patient's concussion, you get bed four over there, broken tibia with compound fracture..
(22:37:00) SCI_LCdr_TLira: *CSO* I am unaware of any Tholians aboard, but I will search for any cosmologists on board. :: pulls up a personnel list on the console, having to wait for it to stabilize somewhat before it goes through and properly pulls up ::
(22:37:11) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: All stop again.
(22:37:32) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: All stop, aye. :: retrothrusts again ::
(22:37:59) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: sends out a message to science personnel with engineering training to report to Lieutenant Quinn and for any cosmologists to report to the bridge, as this personnel list is not displaying properly ::
(22:39:03) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Approaches the nearest shuttle, and initiates a scan. :: Okay, mooring clamps did their job. Looks like the drive assembly took some minor damage, but since I don't plan on flying it...okay, plan of action time.
(22:39:09) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Bridge: Would moving away from the center of the galactic plane offer any benefit? I wasn't really looking at those scans from a 3-d perspective.
(22:40:14) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CSO: Unfortunately, it is a matter of scale, Commander. The galactic plane is too thick and we are too slow right now.
(22:40:19) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Boards the shuttle, and after taking just a moment to allow the undamaged interior to calm him a bit, he powers up the craft, and the first thing he does is run a full 360 degree scan, paying note to the number of detectable life signs and any depressurized sections. ::
(22:40:55) CO_CaptHarper: :: makes her way back to the center seat and sits down for a minute ::
(22:41:26) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks at the pilots, who would be much more learned in this area than she is :: NAV: Ah, I worried that might be the case. I just wasn't sure if perhaps the filaments were operating in a particular strata that we could get above or below, like storm clouds.
(22:43:02) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CSO: It was not without merit.
(22:44:04) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: checks timer :: CTO/ENG/CO: One minute.
(22:44:09) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: glances at Harper, judging her state of mind ::
(22:44:21) MED_Ens_Velekh: CMO: Gotcha. ::Heads over to bed four and smiles to soothe the distressed science officer, glad she had already been given an anaesthetic.:: You're a fan of botany, right? ::Gets to work as the Andorian woman nods. He proceeds to distract her with stories of his mothers groundbreaking work on Cait::
(22:44:48) CO_CaptHarper: :: worried, but staying optimistic since her crew is working their hardest at this ::
(22:45:49) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: moves over toward Navarro :: NAV: Can I pick your brain about the patterns of movement you're seeing here?
(22:46:10) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: initiates scan ::
(22:46:11) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CSO: Of course, ma'am.
(22:46:40) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The scan shows five disturbances, moving away.
(22:47:45) CSO_LCdr_Wright: NAV: So from the scans it seems like these are slow-moving objects, all coming from roughly over there :: points in a direction :: and moving roughly that way :: drags her arm across to point in the opposite direction :: ...Right?
(22:48:30) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CSO: Yes, like current in a river. Our escape trajectories have roughly been the same heading; perpendicular to it.
(22:49:04) CSO_LCdr_Wright: NAV: What if... we floated down the river?
(22:49:12) CO_CaptHarper: :: offers a reassuring look to Kuari ::
(22:49:31) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: smiles back, ears rising and all ::
(22:49:32) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CSO: Slowly followed the disturbances we have already seen?
(22:49:50) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: nods at him solemnly ::
(22:50:50) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CSO: Assuming they do not change direction, but they are rather slow. We can match their speed with a bit of thrust and... float down the river. :: smiles ::
(22:50:58) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: :: The scan finishes on the unconscious patient with concussion; edema on left side of the brain, some bleeding from a ruptured blood vessel. Thankfully not an artery though. ::
(22:52:49) CSO_LCdr_Wright: NAV: Based on our observations, the safest place for us to be while we make repairs would seem to be moving along the current, keeping pace with these things. Given what we've seen, granted. But when your choices are to drown crossing the river or float down it until the situation improves... :: gives him a small, hopeful smile ::
(22:53:19) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CSO: That certainly seems reasonable.
(22:54:18) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: gives him a warm smile :: NAV: Thank you, my friend. :: moves over next to Kate and tells her the idea that she just talked over with Navarro ::
(22:54:19) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Finishes perusing the results of the initial scan, and files away the body count for when he has time to stew over it.:: Okay. Assault bay has atmo. Shuttlebay 2...does not. Gant, suit up. That one's yours. I want a report from you both on what's working and what's flyable in five.
(22:54:20) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: taps fingers on edge of console :: CTO/ENG/CO: One minute.
(22:54:40) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Beams them both on their way. ::
(22:54:42) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: brightens as her screen flashes on steadily. Priority power must have been restored enough to the Bridge for operations. She grins and begins poking at it ::
(22:55:04) CO_CaptHarper: :: looks up at Lexy as she listens :: CSO: Good idea. NAV: Make it happen.
(22:55:37) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Aye, capitana. :: turns Atlantis toward the retreating anomalies and applies forward thrust ::
(22:56:23) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: initiates scan, cause why the fuck not, while the console has power? ::
(22:56:38) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: changes out to the next phaser. He's getting pretty good at this. ::
(22:56:55) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The scan returns the five disturbances now ahead of us... and a new one behind us!
(22:57:21) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CO: There's a new one, right behind us, Captain.
(22:57:24) CEO_LtQuinn: Computer, cross reference readable comm badge signals with active piloting certifications on file. Eliminate the bridge and then start beaming them to this location on my mark.
(22:57:46) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: sends data to nav helm ::
(22:57:51) CO_CaptHarper: :: nods to Jude :: Send it to the helm. NAV: Any adjustments you need to make, at your discretion.
(22:58:23) CSO_LCdr_Wright: NAV/CO: I suggest keeping us equidistant between the previous one and this one, if it can be managed.
(22:58:44) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: thinks a moment :: CO: Any chance we could keep the scan going a little bit longer, scan further in the direction they're coming from, and see more of what's headed our way?
(22:59:13) CO_CaptHarper: CTO: Perhaps we can spare the power now. ENG: Can you do it, lieutenant?
(22:59:37) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Aye... :: watching the relative positions of the disturbances ::
(22:59:44) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: keeps fingers hovering over the tactical console ::
