Lost Harbor
It is around noon of the sixth day, and we are all hard at work on the various tasks required to facilitate our survival in this place. At least that is made somewhat easier now by our new de facto home of an abandoned house, albeit one without electricity. Regardless, bands of displaced Starfleet officers can’t be choosers, so we must work with what we have.

:: outside, hanging up a load of laundry around the fire on various objects that now double as makeshift hangers ::
CMO Lt Tailor 05-Feb-2020 21:22:21
::inside, stripping apart a ripped piece of linen-like clothing that she found, to make into bandages after sterilizing them::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 05-Feb-2020 21:22:27
:: is sitting outside, peering at her feet and trying to extract the splinters buried, muttering every so often in irritation ::
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 21:22:33
:: leans agains the chair in the dining room, balancing it on the back legs, bored, as she waits for a few more hours to check on her traps ::
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 21:22:42
:: finishes up repairing the net, tossing it over her shoulder and heading out to find a place to set it up ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 21:23:14
:: overhears Grey :: TAC2: Do you need some help, lieutenant?
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 21:24:49
::Is combing over the floors and walls over the house, trying to use a combination of his powers to sense the wiring behind the wall, and the general flow of the building's arcitecture; searching for the generator the breaker is connected to.::
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 21:25:31
:: makes her way to the river, looking for the right spot. She hums happily to herself ::
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 21:26:16
:: having followed when he saw Emily head toward the river, he speaks up from behind her :: MED: Need a hand?
TAC2 1Lt Grey 05-Feb-2020 21:27:29
:: glances up at the address, straightening slightly before glancing at Harper :: CO: ... I want to say no, but... with how many I've found, help might be very much appreciated. ::
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 21:27:33
:: sees Ilaihr and lands on the floor with a thunk and gets up and walks up to him :: CEO: Need a hand?
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 21:27:54
ACTION> Ilaihr gets no sense of the dead wiring within the walls, since there's no power flowing through them.
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 21:28:28
:: turns around, jumping with surprise as she hadn't been paying attention. She smiles, throwing one of the corners of the net over a tree bent over the river :: NAV: Sure, just hold.. :: she fishes around through the tangle of net, handing him another vine rope ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 21:29:14
:: smiles and kneels before Grey, taking a look at her foot ::
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 21:29:19
:: takes hold of the rope ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 21:29:20
SCI: Most probably dear girl.
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 21:29:40
CEO: Luckily for you, I happen to have two. :: grins ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 05-Feb-2020 21:30:23
:: pulls her previous foot on work, resuming picking out the splinters she could identify, kinda embarrassed to have the captain sitting and helping her ::
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 21:30:27
:: ties the rope on the tree and steps out of the net tangle. She looks at the river and thinks for a moment, having taken some of the fresh clothes to wear.. she pulls off her shirt and pants and tosses them aside before grabbing the other side of the net to wade across the river ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 21:31:36
:: narrows her eyes and finds a splinter, then gingerly removes it ::
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 21:32:12
:: chuckles as he admires the view, then calls out :: MED: You know, I would have done that!
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 21:32:47
SCI: If you happen to have a moneky's paw on you, then that would be most useful. ::Thinks he can vaguely sense the metal of the wires in the walls, but his brow furrows as he pushes his abilities.:: I could wish for my damn cane. ::Sighs, and rests against the wall for a monet.::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 05-Feb-2020 21:32:50
CO: I now wish tweezers were avaliable. This would've gone much better. :: laughs quietly, tugging a large splinter out and flicking it away ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 05-Feb-2020 21:32:51
:: arrives back at the house with a large bounty of firewood, having built along the way a sled - two long branches, tied together with shorter branches, able to carry more branches, dragging along behind him. He arrives at the door, ready for lunch. ::
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 21:33:07
:: laughs, pulling herself up on the opposite bank with an arm full of net. She goes for the other tree she'd chosen, throwing another corner rope vine over it :: NAV: The Captain worked so hard to do laundry!
XO Cdr Kuari 05-Feb-2020 21:33:20
:: has been wandering for some time, soaring inland over the trees in a search pattern, always coming back to the river a bit further down stream. She searches for an easy scent while also judging the lay of the land ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 21:33:33
TAC2: Oh! There is a first-aid kit in there. Maybe it has some tweezers.
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 21:34:07
CEO: Hm. Well, I can always look for electrical blueprints. Or perhaps there a handy guide in a closet somewhere.
CMO Lt Tailor 05-Feb-2020 21:34:11
::smiles in satisfaction at the pile of shredded fabric laying on the table in front of her; gathers it all up and heads for the kitchen to find herself a large pot and some water::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 21:34:40
:: pats her foot :: MED: I will check. :: darts through the open door ::
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 21:35:02
MED: Sí, that she did, but I could have at least spared you the icy bath!
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 21:35:05
::Stands up and walks out the door, beginning to circle the house, slowly ducking down into a crawl, as he survey's the foundations.::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 05-Feb-2020 21:35:24
:: hums in thanks, keeping her attention fixed on the larger splinters she was able to grab via her fingers ::
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 21:35:57
:: tilts head :: Ok. :: starts going around and turning closets and shelves inside out to try and find anything related to the electrical work ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 21:36:05
ACTION> Ilaihr's scrutiny reveals the entrance to what appears, from the outside, to be a crawlspace.
:: returns after a moment with a pair of tweezers! ::
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 21:36:31
:: grins, eyes twinkling mischievously :: NAV: Ah, you meant the river! :: she half-jokes, taking the final corner and pulling it back. With the net spread out, she ties the other end around another tree loosely to hold it and gestures for Navarro to do the same ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 21:36:43
:: presents them triumphantly to Grey, then uses them to resume her foot surgery ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 21:36:58
SCI: There is no logical place for a generator to be, with the floor space that is apparent. ::Shouts back in.:: Aha! ::Brushes away some overgrown weeds with his stick.::
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 21:37:25
:: chuckles, catching the mischievous glint as he ties off the vine ::
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 21:38:10
:: walks over to Ilaihr again :: CEO: I'm a bit smaller than you. Perhaps I should go first.
CTO LtC Wolfe 05-Feb-2020 21:38:43
:: stacks the wood along the house next to the door, where it's easily accessible from anywhere.'
TAC2 1Lt Grey 05-Feb-2020 21:39:25
:: grins in relief, sighing brightly. :: CO: Perfect! :: smiles at the captain lightly in thanks, keeping working on extracting the splinters :: CO: I had this pair of sleeping-slippers that I loaned to Acacia, so she was safe and I was barefoot while we traveled.
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 21:40:12
TAC2: That was very nice of you. :: her keen pilot's eyes pick out the remaining splinters, and she deftly slides them out with the tweezers ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 21:40:19
SCI: How is your bite coming along? ::Smirks, as he pokes his head inside.::
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 21:40:31
:: paces back and tightens the rope on the tree on her side to improve the position and then jumps back in, scattering dirt over the net. As usual once in place it blocks a section of the river downstream, with most of it lurking on the bottom of the river. She wades back to her side, and stretches her back ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 21:40:44
ACTION> The crawlspace is dark and musty, but dry.
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 21:41:34
:: crosses arms :: CEO: Better, now that I am able to throughly clean it. Ain't gonna effect my ability to crawl in tiny spaces.
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 21:41:56
:: appreciatively takes in the show as he tightens the vines down on his side ::
XO Cdr Kuari 05-Feb-2020 21:42:16
:: sees a vague shape in the distance through the trees that instantly confuses her, making her think she has gotten turned around. Moving closer to investigate, it suddenly occurs to her that this is not the same building she departed from this morning! She quickly drops altitude in an attempt to hide her approach. Were there people there? Did they see her? ::
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 21:42:49
:: takes the long end of the rope tied around a tree and threads it over a branch so she can join Navarro on his side, looking around for some bugs to use as bait ::
:: has the net set up so that it blocks a section of the river downstream, and pulling both ropes will yank up all the fish above it. Quite a system ::
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 21:45:09
MED: Did you design this net?
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 21:45:16
SCI: No, but there is no good reason to exacerbate it. ::Pauses.:: Are you familiar with myth of your world from the Japanese culture; called Ubasute? ::Smiles genially.:: Do feel free to follow me though.
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 21:46:02
:: laughs out loud at the thought, pausing slightly as she retrieves her clothes :: NAV: Oh.. no, no. It's been passed down for long enough that I couldn't tell you who did.
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 21:46:31
MED: Regardless, it's impressive.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 21:46:42
::Rips off a piece of his robe, and hooks it onto the wall by the crawlspace opening, before ducking inside.::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 05-Feb-2020 21:47:16
:: sighs in relief at finally being both feet splinter-free, hopping to her feet and offering a hand to help Harper up :: CO: Thank you, Captain. ::
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 21:47:51
CEO: Not a human, Blue Grandpa. :: gets down on her hands and knees, and follows him in ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 21:48:47
:: takes Grey's hand and stands :: TAC2: I am happy to help! It is what we all must to do to get through this, together.
XO Cdr Kuari 05-Feb-2020 21:49:02
:: her first inclination is to report in, but she of course doesn't have her usual form of communication. As she speeds to one side past the trees, a clearing beyond the river comes into view, and she can clearly see three more buildings. Not taking the time to study them further, she concentrates on hiding herself from view, turning yet again. She uses the river as a clear route under the tree level, straight towards home ::
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 21:50:10
:: beams proudly :: NAV: Ohani would be proud of me.. :: she once again realizes she's not wearing her translator :: NAV: Grandmother. It's uh.. :: she tosses a few bugs into the water and puts her clothes back on, sitting down to take a break :: NAV: In my dad's.. in my tribe, our grandmothers teach us survival skills. There's a saying.. translated, it's, uh--your mother teaches you to live, your grandmother teaches you to live without her. I feel an obligation to do what I can to keep people healthy... :: she rubs her chin thoughtfully, looking at the water ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 21:51:09
::Crawls through the space, using his senses to guide him in the dark.::
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 21:51:12
MED: And to you, that obligation seems to extend beyond medical care. :: sits down next to her ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 21:51:49
ACTION> The crawlspace contains several banks of heavy objects, into which run wires from the floor above.
CMO Lt Tailor 05-Feb-2020 21:51:55
::has by now filled the pot, tossed all of the rags into it, and hauled the whole thing to the fire to boil::
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 21:51:57
:: nods thoughtfully, watching the river as she lets her muscles rest for a bit, considering other traps she knows :: NAV: It's really important to keep people fed.
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 21:53:31
MED: ¡Sí! It is not common to see a doctor so well versed in doing that, but I must say, I appreciate the fish.
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 21:54:31
:: moves to finish hanging the laundry ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 05-Feb-2020 21:54:56
:: follows Harper, bending to help finish hanging the laundry ::::
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 21:55:06
:: nods thoughtfully :: NAV: When I was little, I thought learning wilderness survival was all show, and tradition. I never expected to be faced with a situation like this, I guess.
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 21:55:08
TAC2: Oh, thank you!
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 21:55:36
::Follows along.::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 05-Feb-2020 21:56:20
CO: Only seems fair after you helped me with the splinters, ma'am.
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 21:56:27
MED: We never do until we are actually faced with it. Even when training for it in case of being shot down, I didn't think it would actually happen to me, until it did.
CTO LtC Wolfe 05-Feb-2020 21:56:42
:: huffs and grunts, finishes the last of the piling, and has left a substantial, yet neatly-organized, stack of firewood on the deck next to the door, safe from any rain, but easily accessible inside or out. ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 21:57:05
TAC2: Helping each other is what I was talking about, yes. No task is too trivial, if it helps us all.
:: calls over to Wolfe :: CTO: Nice wood pile!
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 21:58:41
::Keeps crawling along, examining the walls and the banks.::
XO Cdr Kuari 05-Feb-2020 21:58:44
:: sees the nets in the river first and turns accordingly, heading straight for her usual landing clearing. She lands at a bit of a gallop on all fours, but it turns into a two-legged raptor sprint towards the back porch. She sees Harper in no time and makes her way straight towards her ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 05-Feb-2020 21:59:00
:: glances at where Wolfe's grunting is appearing to come from, chuckling. :: CO: Very true... but I think Wolfe is grunting like a walrus with all that wood he's brought. :: is giggling the entire time she was speaking ::
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 21:59:13
NAV: Yeah.. :: she sympathizes :: NAV: That was pretty scary from our end, I can hardly imagine yours. :: she gets up, looking for more vines, unable to keep idle for too long :: NAV: At least we've found each other. I love Riley but.. to be stuck with only her forever? :: she chuckles ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 21:59:55
:: hears something and turns to find Kuari, coming in hot! :: Kuari! Are you alright?!
TAC2 1Lt Grey 05-Feb-2020 22:00:39
:: glances at Kuari's entrance, stiffening slightly and moving closer :: XO: What's happened?
CTO LtC Wolfe 05-Feb-2020 22:00:49
:: sees Kuari and starts watching behind her, ready to attack ::
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:01:22
:: laughs as he gets up to join her :: MED: As they say, hell is being trapped forever with your friends.
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:02:36
:: braids strands of three vines together as she finds them, staggering the ends so that each strand can be replaced as it runs out. She glances up as Kuari flies overhead, waving in case they were spotted ::
XO Cdr Kuari 05-Feb-2020 22:02:53
CO: Buildings! :: she manages as she pants for breath, coming to a jogging stop before turning and pointing her body :: Down river, on the other side!
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 22:03:20
:: perks :: XO: More buildings? A town, maybe?
TAC2 1Lt Grey 05-Feb-2020 22:03:33
:: glances at Wolfe then Harper, expression serious. :: XO: Any signs of life?
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:03:50
NAV: We have a village. We'll work something out. :: she's half reassuring herself ::
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:04:35
MED: Whatever brought us here... well, I have to think it is here, and that we'll find it and figure out a way back.
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:05:23
:: nods thoughtfully, draping a vine braid over her shoulder so she can continue it, tugging another from a tree above :: NAV: Keeping hope is good!
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 22:05:43
:: reaches up to feel any wires ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 05-Feb-2020 22:06:29
:: stands down, realizing it's excitement and not running from something that brought Kuari in at such a hot clip. ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 22:06:54
ACTION> The wires go straight from the large, heavy objects up into the wall, some running under the floor before they do.
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:07:35
MED: It beats the alternative. :: wonders about Jester, and hopes that she's still aboard Atlantis, then deflects his own line of thinking :: And supreme confidence in my own abilities to escape danger. I'm a fighter pilot, after all, it's a job requirement.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 22:07:46
::Hums, as they examine the wires and what he hopes is the generator.::
XO Cdr Kuari 05-Feb-2020 22:08:15
:: looks to everyone, having essentially delivered her report to her captain :: CO/CTO/TAC2: I don't know if it's inhabited. I didn't want to go in alone, without you knowing what I had found. The buildings looked... :: pauses, looking up at their roof :: ...well, a lot like this one in construction, maybe even a bit sturdier. I didn't see any signs of life, though.
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 22:08:46
:: she pinches her chin, considering :: XO: How far away are they, would you say, in terms of foot travel?
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:08:46
:: shrugs :: NAV: I'm coping by not speculating on how long we'll be here. We need food either way. :: on that note, she goes to check if any fish have stumbled upon their trap ::
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:09:31
MED: I don't want to speculate on that either. I rather like life aboard Atlantis.
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 22:11:13
ACTION> The objects that Ilaihr hopes are the generators are featureless, except for two terminals with connected wires.
ACTION> Several fish have been caught in the net!
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 22:13:01
SCI: Hmm ::Crawls up further to get a look at the terminals.::
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:13:34
:: grins, looking at Navarro and handing him one of the ropes. On the count of three they heave, unsuspecting fish being plucked up out of the water! ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 22:14:13
ACTION> There is a dusty label near the terminal, with writing in Gencodian.
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 22:14:20
CEO: Don't get electrocuted, mate.
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:14:49
:: licks his lips as he eyes a future meal ::
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:16:13
:: hands Navarro the ropes to hold, climbing half way up the tree the net is tied to and tossing five fish from the net onto the land, sealing their fate ::
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:16:48
:: takes the rope and keeps a firm hold on them as he watches Emily ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 22:16:54
::Blows on the dust.::
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 22:17:46
Wish I had a damn light. :: reaches up and wipes dust off with her hand ::
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:17:51
:: grins, coming back down and dusting off her hands :: NAV: Alright.. you said you’d brave the river, yeah? Wanna set it back up while I take these home? :: she gestures to the poor flopping fish ::
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:18:47
MED: I think I can manage that, as long as one of those is for me. :: grins and sheds his clothes before taking the icy plunge ::
XO Cdr Kuari 05-Feb-2020 22:19:03
:: furrows her heavy eye ridges, calculating and looking into the distance, as if she could judge from here :: CO: Maybe three...four hours walk?
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:20:16
:: gathers up the fish, pleased to find that three of them are quite plump. She mumbles a reverent tribal prayer before dispatching them each with a rock to the face to stop their flopping, heading back for the new campsite ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 22:20:43
:: nods, still pinching her chin :: XO: Would you say a scouting party is worth the risk?
TAC2 1Lt Grey 05-Feb-2020 22:21:10
:: crosses her arms over her chest, listening quietly ::
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:21:31
:: once in the river, he repeats what he saw Emily do to set up the net, finding the water quite refreshing... at first ::
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 22:21:48
CEO: You think the cap could read that?
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 22:22:05
SCI: We'll need the captain. I havent studied gencodian
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:22:19
:: hums happily, then stops as she finds a large party having a discussion. She is worried at first, arms full of fish ::
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 22:22:31
CEO: Aye. I'll go back and get her. And a light. :: crawls backwards ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 22:24:01
SCI: I wouldnt bother with the light. Fire could damage this.
XO Cdr Kuari 05-Feb-2020 22:24:41
:: thinks for a moment, then nods, finally dropping to sit as she catches her breath :: CO: I think so. I was afraid to approach from the air, but the least we could do is observe from the tree line, where we couldn't be seen, on the ground.
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 22:24:50
CEO: Got it.
:: continues back ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 22:25:10
XO: Agreed. :: drops her hand :: But it will have to be tomorrow, given the travel time, so that our party can return before dark.
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:25:37
:: blinks, surprised to hear talk of travel times and parties, and continues into the kitchen to put the fish on the counter and free up her arms ::
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:26:25
:: sets the net up and heads back to the other bank ::
:: leans on the tree, air drying a bit before putting his clothes back on ::
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 22:28:12
:: struggles to make her way out going backwards, but manages to get out. she walks back in the house and shouts out, since everyone is somewhere :: CO: Cap! We need ya to decipher some writing.
XO Cdr Kuari 05-Feb-2020 22:28:13
:: lets Harper's words sink in, and acquiesces that slowing down enough to prepare properly is in order. She considers going back herself, but doing so alone wouldn't be smart ::
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:29:12
:: heads back to the river to make sure Navarro set up the net right. She'll leave the search partying to the marines ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 22:29:18
::Mumbles to himself.:: Self: Fools. Toying with the concept of trans/cendance, and you tried to artificially induce it on an industrial scale... Is this part of the results...

CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 22:29:40
:: hears a request for her coming from inside the house:: XO: In the meantime, resume your scouting and hunting. The buildings will still be there tomorrow.
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:30:36
:: sighs as she comes into range of Navarro :: NAV: What I wouldn't give for a warm drakberry pie.
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 22:30:41
XO: Well done, Kuari.
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:31:06

MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:31:48

NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:32:16

MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:32:57
:: snorks :: NAV: I'm not afraid of spice! :: suddenly, she's listful :: Mm.. spice.
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:33:41
MED: I wonder if this place has any wild peppers...
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:34:09
:: wonders about the native herbs, idly visually scanning the shin-height and shorter plants. Shame they don't have any testing equipment :: NAV: This shit would've been a lot more fun and a lot less tossing the dice of fate with a scanner.
:: checks the net and notes there's not much action again yet, also looking for some bugs to toss in the water ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 22:35:11
XO: Be careful when you go back out. I would hate for the huntress to become the hunted, if something bigger than you is out there. :: smiles and goes to attend to Jude's request ::
SCI: What can I help you with, lieutenant?
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:36:16
MED: What we think of as such a trivial thing would be so valuable now.
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 22:36:27
CO: I hope you are ready to get dirty, cause we found some Genecodian writing we need ya to translate.
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 22:37:22
:: brightens :: SCI: Translating dirty writing is one of my favorite things! Show me.
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:37:25
:: tosses in some bugs and keeps two, handing one to Navarro and munching the other. She cuddles up to him :: NAV: At least we have each other.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 22:38:21
::Hums to himself as he tries to examine the writing himself, whilst he waits.::
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 22:38:29
:: gives thumbs up, and makes her way to the crawlspace :: CO: It's quite a bit up. :: gets down, and makes her way in ::
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:38:45
:: pulls her close :: MED: Because of Lt. Jude's condition when we were reunited, I never got a chance to tell you how happy it made me to find you again. I was worried, but I see now that was pretty foolish.
XO Cdr Kuari 05-Feb-2020 22:38:54
:: watches Harper go and solidifies her orders in her mind, getting her "head in the game" as it were to go hunting ::
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:39:42
:: laughs at that, bopping him in the chest playfully :: NAV: I was worried about you! A human, out here in the wild. If we were in pairs, there was always a chance of a pair without the right skills.
CTO LtC Wolfe 05-Feb-2020 22:39:50
:: stands up and faces Kuari :: XO: We should work on an approach plan. You said you didn't see anyone at the village?
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 22:39:56
:: follows Jude into the crawlspace, going slowly to let her eyes adjust ::
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:40:55
:: chuckles :: MED: I was alone. It would have been much more natural to at least have a horse, but I'm thankful I spent my youth in the mountains.
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:41:30
:: whistles lowly :: NAV: You were alone? I think you're the only one.. of all the.. :: she chuckles :: You're bad luck.
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:42:01
MED: Clearly, I keep getting shot down. :: grins ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 22:43:40
:: her eyes wide in the darkness, she's led to Ilaihr :: CEO/SCI: There is something to read down here?
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:44:31
:: rests her head on his shoulder, closing her eyes for a moment and letting herself relax :: NAV: Well I don't think you can get shot down here..
XO Cdr Kuari 05-Feb-2020 22:44:42
:: turns her attention to Wolfe, eager to carry on the conversation :: CTO: No, but I didn't get close enough to observe. There were too many unknowns to stay close alone. I saw no signs of smoke or working industry, though. From what I can tell, approaching the clearing from the river would be the best and most direct approach, while using the forest's edge as cover.
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:44:51
:: crosses her fingers and grimaces, like.. hopefully? ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 22:45:13
CO: Hello captain. ::Keeps glancing over the terminal.:: I believe this is related to the generator; the wires from the house lead here. But I do not read Gencodian. I have gleaned a word or two from this, and a couple of letter patterns... but you will probably have more luck with it.
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 22:46:24
CEO: Why, Ilaihr, I thought you had read my book on the subject! :: smiles as she looks at the label, trying to make it out in only the light coming from the entrance ::
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:46:57
:: trails his fingers down her cheek :: MED: You were kind enough not to shoot me down.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 22:47:03
CO: Do speak up if you require assistance in *seeing *it, down here in this low light.
CTO LtC Wolfe 05-Feb-2020 22:47:04
:: almost forgets from Kuari's analysis that she's not one of his division anymore. :: XO: Very good, ... :: remembers his decorum :: Commander. No signs of life, but that doesn't mean there's not someone there. We should craft some spears to take with us. Assuming we get back to Atlantis, I'm sleeping in full combat garb from now on.
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:48:05
:: chuckles, letting the moment be and enjoying his presence and the sound of the river ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 22:48:47
:: her eyes finally adjust, and as they are able to gather more light than human eyes, she starts to mouth the numbers and words under her breath ::
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 22:48:49
:: sits uncomfortably between the two ::
XO Cdr Kuari 05-Feb-2020 22:49:29
:: nods approvingly :: Good idea. CTO: See to it, letting the captain know beforehand. :: stands :: I have to hunt, however, so that we're well fed for the journey. I will return by sundown.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 22:50:12
CO: I did not study it thoroughly enough to decipher this console. And it has been some time since I read it. Many other things to do.
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 22:50:34
CEO: There is what I believe to be a manufacturer's name, followed by input... voltages, perhaps? As a range... and output, as well, along with a unit of time.
CTO LtC Wolfe 05-Feb-2020 22:50:57
XO; Aye, Commander. Stay safe out there. :: turns in to notify the Captain. ::
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:51:00
:: gets up after a while to find more fish have gathered. She grabs the lines and pulls, surprising the fish with death from below! She hands the lines to Navarro to hold. ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 22:51:07
CEO: And I forgive you. :: smirks ::
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:51:41
:: takes the lines and secures them ::
XO Cdr Kuari 05-Feb-2020 22:52:36
:: nods and, knowing that Wolfe is taking care of the preparations, she can clear her mind and focus on hunting for now. She trots off towards the clearing, taking flight in search for prey ::
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 22:52:51
CEO: Well, you think you can do your magic and turn this thang on?
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:52:53
:: tosses the four fish that lost their battle with the net to the shore. She bounces back to the ground with a spring, pleased with herself :: NAV: Oh, it's mundane, but there's something about fishing. Man outsmarting beast.
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:53:14
MED: Mundane, but delicious!
CTO LtC Wolfe 05-Feb-2020 22:54:08
:: sees that Harper is nowhere to be found, and goes about other work until he sees her again. ::
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:54:13
:: gathers up the fish and looks up at the sun :: NAV: Hm.. is it worth another go? Yeah, probably. Can you set it up again? :: she chimes, once again dispatching the fish with a swift blow to the side of the head ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 22:54:54
CO: That sounds about right, anything more? ::Thinks to himself.:: I also feel a great disconnect with the species. I find their Great Endeavour to be distateful. I have seen and experienced the death's of many people, but never on such a scale.
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:55:00
MED: Of course. The water is invigorating, and I did just now get dry.
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:55:57
:: heads back for camp with the fish once more, idly looking at those gathered and smiling ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 22:56:03
CEO: No, that is all, just a mundane label with specifications. :: Ilaihr's words bring to mind their experience on Gencodia when they replayed that last day before transcendence ::
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 22:56:40
:: looks around it to see if it leads to anything with switches or the like ::
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 22:56:46
:: hadn't put his clothes back on, so he wades straight back into the water to set the net up once more ::
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 22:58:10
:: deposits the fish with the rest on the counter and begins gutting them without even thinking about it, having used up quite a bit of counter space. She sets a bowl aside for bits for soup, and bits to bury, then begins cutting up the fish meat into smaller, more numerous chunks. ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 22:58:38
::Turns his head slightly, then rests his hand on the wall, letting out a deep hum. He thinks on the information that has been gleaned.:: CO/SCI: These are... capacitors... or batteries of some kind. Has anyone been on the roof?
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 22:59:07
CEO: Not that I know of.
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 22:59:17
CO/CEO: I wanna crawl on a roof!
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 23:00:34
:: eyes Jude :: SCI: Well, you do climb, so I would think you to be an ideal candidate for the job.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 23:00:53
CO: I may need to crawl around here for longer, to examine these. If they are batteries, there may be some juice left in them, or maybe a way to refill the chemical ingredients needed. But if its a capacitor, there may be some kind of photovoltaic cells on the roof.
CMO Lt Tailor 05-Feb-2020 23:01:07
::has by now gone inside again to drape the boiled bandages over a curtain rod in a window to dry in some strong sunlight, having missed the conversation about the other building::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 23:01:17
CO: Or there may be a button around here.
NAV Lt Navarro 05-Feb-2020 23:01:38
:: after the net is in place once more, he ends up leaning against the tree and drying again ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 23:02:55
:: nodding :: SCI: Linxi, check the roof. I will help Ilaihr down here.
SCI: Just do not fall and break anything, since that would not be a fun recovery here.
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 23:03:48
:: brings her half-fillets, now quite numerous, outside stacked on a plate. She begins cooking the fish, not aware of anyone else's endeavors yet ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 23:03:58
CO: How much, do you know, did the Gencodians actually know about psionics, and the science of transentience? There must have been a lead up of technology to the transcendence?
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 23:05:13
Wooooo! CO: Ptth. Don't worry. I once jumped off a cliff. :: turns around and crawls out ::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 23:05:49
CEO: A great deal, I imagine. They succeeded in leaving this dimension, after all. The latest theories even try to connect them to the Q or the Traveler, but I am skeptical.
MED Lt Acacia 05-Feb-2020 23:06:26
:: sits and cooks, humming happily ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 23:08:57
::Chuckles.:: CO: I find that unlikely. The Continuum and the Travelers are amongst the highest of the Pantheon. And I was unaware that we were certain they left this dimension at all. I recall seeing the attempt, and then darkness. ::Keeps feeling along the walls, looking for something.::
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 23:09:43
CEO: I recall that as well; you make a valid point that we do not know their ultimate fate.
SCI LtJG Jude 05-Feb-2020 23:11:14
:: crawls out and looks for the best way to get on the roof. maybe a ladder somewhere? ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 05-Feb-2020 23:11:36
CO: And even if they succeeded in casting off their physical form, the higher planes are a terrible place to be lost when you are not properly prepared. They may find their new reality even more of a prison than the one they left.
CO: They industrialised a highly personal and spiritual experience; one that some species will spend the majority of their adult material formed lives to prepare them for, and they did it in a day.
CO Capt Harper 05-Feb-2020 23:14:54
CEO: I had not thought of it that way, but then again, I lack your experience with the subject. :: joins him in feeling along the walls ::
