Lost Harbor
It is evening of the sixth day and, around the fire, we prepare for dinner and the rest of the night’s activities. In addition to a bountious haul of fish from the river, Kuari has returned from her hunt with an animal resembling a deer, along with a couple of smaller rabbit-like creatures, and the tentative hope for electricity is in the air after the power flickered on as the sun’s last rays touched the partially-cleaned solar roof. Tomorrow’s expedition to the buildings Kuari spotted from the air must be planned, and more cleaning and assorted work awaits, but first, we feast.

:: flitting with her :: CO: Do you think we'll have enough meat left over to dry some of it or something? We can set up racks to dry the pelts.
MED Lt Acacia 19-Feb-2020 21:17:46

:: taking the laundry down and folding it :: CSO: Probably! Of course, we will have to set aside some for breakfast, and for the scouting party to take with them, but we have a lot.
SCI LtJG Jude 19-Feb-2020 21:21:07
:: her stomach grumbles, and hearing the conversation about breakfast, pats Tailor on the arm :: CMO: Food.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Feb-2020 21:21:36
::Watches over the fire, doing a meditative hum, as the flames dance in his eyes; he finally understands how the power systems of this house work, but they are damaged, and there must be a solution. He set it aside for now as he searches for emptiness and calm, with the hope that meaning will flicker into his minds eye for a brief moment.::
CTO LtC Wolfe 19-Feb-2020 21:22:15
:: walks up to the camp and house with yet another armload of firewood and sets it a couple of meters from the fire ::
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Feb-2020 21:22:24
:: goes over to the pelts and begins meticulously scraping all the fat and flesh from the hides with a knife from the kitchen ::
CMO Lt Tailor 19-Feb-2020 21:22:40
SCI: That's an improvement. ::smiles:: I'll see what we can do. What are you in the mood for?
CO Capt Harper 19-Feb-2020 21:22:51
:: sees Wolfe return :: CTO: Benedict! That should do us well into the morning, I think!
SCI LtJG Jude 19-Feb-2020 21:23:07
CMO: ...Food.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 19-Feb-2020 21:23:10
:: grumbles as she settles with a knife, reaching for a pelt to start scraping the fat and flesh off, being sure to only touch a select amount of raw meat ::
XO Cdr Kuari 19-Feb-2020 21:23:33
::flies out one last time to grab some fruits from the high trees, then lies down on her side near the fire and falls asleep::
MED Lt Acacia 19-Feb-2020 21:24:47
:: also finds a seat near the fire and her knife, resting a pelt on a tree stump to scrape the inside dry ::
CMO Lt Tailor 19-Feb-2020 21:25:12
::chuckles:: SCI: I'll be right back.

:: realizes she is not quite sure how to properly dry meat, but imagines someone here knows ::
:: takes the clean, folded laundry into the living area and sets it out, up for grabs for the morning ::

CMO Lt Tailor 19-Feb-2020 21:26:54
::stands, going out to the fire to see what's available for Jude:: MED: Jude's feeling better, she said she's hungry.
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Feb-2020 21:28:08
All: Does anyone know how to cure a hide properly?
MED Lt Acacia 19-Feb-2020 21:29:11
:: hops up, forgetting the hide completely :: CMO: Oh! That's good. :: she grabs a plate and starts picking a variety of food from the selection of what's been cooked. She hears Wright ask, but is distracted. ::
CMO Lt Tailor 19-Feb-2020 21:30:21
::thinks:: CSO: I remember vaguely a school lesson where they said it involved chewing the hide and maybe smoking it? I have no idea what order that goes in... Or why you would chew it.
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Feb-2020 21:30:41
All: I know it involves salt or oils and maybe smoking, but that's all I've got. And I don't know that we have access to salt or oils.
All: Unless.. :: looks over at what's left of the deer carcass ::
CMO Lt Tailor 19-Feb-2020 21:31:18
All: Personally I would skip the chewing.
CO Capt Harper 19-Feb-2020 21:31:38
:: heads back outside, wondering why someone would chew a hide ::
MED Lt Acacia 19-Feb-2020 21:31:44
:: looks up :: CSO: Yeah, I.. don't think we have the stuff to do it right.
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Feb-2020 21:31:58
:: nods at the good doctor Tailor, distracted ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Feb-2020 21:32:05
CSO: Salt can be quite difficult to locate in an area such as this.
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Feb-2020 21:32:16
MED: What about the oils in the brain?
MED Lt Acacia 19-Feb-2020 21:33:45
:: pauses, thinking :: CSO: That.. should work, actually. Did we set the brain aside?
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Feb-2020 21:34:37
:: grunts from the effort of carefully fleshing the hide :: MED: I think it's still with the carcass. But we'll have to boil it with water or something to break it down, and I imagine the hides should be dry first....? :: tries to sound confident, but doesn't know ::
MED Lt Acacia 19-Feb-2020 21:35:49
:: nods, realizing she should just say what she knows. She has to think for a few seconds :: CSO: Uhh.. clean it, like scrape all the goo off. Then yeah, you stretch it out with the ties.
:: thinks for another moment :: CSO: Let it dry, shave it.. brain soup. Soften it and maybe smoke it, we may not even need salt.
CTO LtC Wolfe 19-Feb-2020 21:36:37
:: after spending some time stoking the fire, goes into the house to see if there's anywhere there that he can assist with anything. ::
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Feb-2020 21:37:21
MED: Do we want to remove the hair for leather, or keep it intact for furs?
CO Capt Harper 19-Feb-2020 21:37:37
:: lets her people do what they do best, as there are few topics of conversation that she could contribute less to than this one ::
MED Lt Acacia 19-Feb-2020 21:37:54
:: crosses her arms :: CSO: Does everyone have shoes yet?
TAC2 1Lt Grey 19-Feb-2020 21:38:34
:: glances up at the spoken words from Acacia, making her startle slightly before turning her attention back to the hide she was working on. ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Feb-2020 21:38:42
::Hums aloud.:: Self: We would need an ocean nearby, or we would need to scout some mountainous areas, or find a salt bed. Or we could strain the blood of the animals, and evaporate the liquid after multiple filtrations.
CO Capt Harper 19-Feb-2020 21:39:00
:: grabs a bit of deer off the fire and tentatively bites into it as she walks back into the house ::
MED Lt Acacia 19-Feb-2020 21:39:07
:: realizes she sat down the plate of food she'd made for Jude, getting back on task :: CSO: Leather! :: she goes to bring Jude the food, a little bit of everything they've got ::
CO Capt Harper 19-Feb-2020 21:39:34
:: nods in appreciation at the taste being pleasant as she approaches Wolfe :: CTO: So, tomorrow's journey.
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Feb-2020 21:39:43
Self: Leather it is, then. :: continues scraping the deer hide, messy work ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 19-Feb-2020 21:40:16
:: turns to Harper :: CO: Indeed. I look forward to it.
MED Lt Acacia 19-Feb-2020 21:40:17
CSO: I think you shave it after it dries on the rack. :: she adds, before slipping inside to find Jude ::
CMO Lt Tailor 19-Feb-2020 21:40:26
::smells the venison and realises she hasn't eaten in a few hours; goes and gets a plate::
SCI LtJG Jude 19-Feb-2020 21:40:52
Linxi perks are the sight of food and scoots herself to sit up.
CO Capt Harper 19-Feb-2020 21:40:56
CTO: Kuari leads, of course, and you will be on point with her. You should definitely take one of the doctors, as well.
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Feb-2020 21:41:28
Self: I think it's less of a shaving and more of a pulling out of hair completely, but yeah.
MED Lt Acacia 19-Feb-2020 21:41:34
:: sees how well she's moving and hands it over, seeing if she can eat by herself. She smiles warmly :: SCI: How are you feeling?
TAC2 1Lt Grey 19-Feb-2020 21:41:44
:: glances up, curious if she'd be joining on the group's journey, listening absentmindedly ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 19-Feb-2020 21:43:06
CO: Aye. While this planet hasn't proven to have much dangerous wildlife, save for insects, we shall be cautious. I wish I had Syvek here.
SCI LtJG Jude 19-Feb-2020 21:43:15
:: goes to shove food in her mouth :: MED: Hungry.
MED Lt Acacia 19-Feb-2020 21:44:11
:: nods, seeming pleased by that answer. She goes to the kitchen to get a glass of water, bringing that to Jude's bedside next. ::
CO Capt Harper 19-Feb-2020 21:45:09
:: nodding along :: CTO: If he is not here, then I am certain he would volunteer to be, given the chance.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Feb-2020 21:45:20
::Grabs a small handful of meat, consuming each piece pensively as he looks between the group.:: All: So, the good news and the bad news everyone!
TAC2 1Lt Grey 19-Feb-2020 21:45:45
:: is unsure if she's coming or not, and slowly rises to approach the captain and Wolfe :: CO/CTO: Would... I be able to come along? If that's... allowed? :: asks hesitantly ::
SCI LtJG Jude 19-Feb-2020 21:46:07
:: groans :: MED: Can you tell Ilaihr to think less loudly? It hurts.
MED Lt Acacia 19-Feb-2020 21:46:39
:: chuckles, nodding sympathetically :: SCI: I'd try if I thought it would work.
CO Capt Harper 19-Feb-2020 21:46:50
:: looks to the Colonel, then back to Grey :: TAC2: My inclination would be to leave one Marine here for defense, but I will defer to Mr. Wolfe's tactical judgement.
CMO Lt Tailor 19-Feb-2020 21:47:26
::looks to Ilaihr, chewing her own piece of venison::
SCI LtJG Jude 19-Feb-2020 21:48:00
:: yells out :: CEO: Blue grandpa! Your thinking is too loud mate!
TAC2 1Lt Grey 19-Feb-2020 21:48:41
:: holds her hands up slightly in acknowledgement, glancing slightly to Wolfe, hopeful ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Feb-2020 21:49:04
All: As you have all seen, we have been able to restore power; however we will only have that power available during the day. Whilst the main circuitry of the structure still appears to be sound, the capacitors that the store the energy are damaged... probably heavily degraded by time and the environment.
CTO LtC Wolfe 19-Feb-2020 21:49:32
CO: We should have everyone protected. Someone must stay here.
CMO Lt Tailor 19-Feb-2020 21:50:04
CEO: During the day is better than no power at all.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 19-Feb-2020 21:50:05
:: couldn't help but giggle at Jude's yelled comment, hearing Wolfe's response, she looked disappointed slightly before ducking her head and slipping off to continue scrubbing the hides down ::
CO Capt Harper 19-Feb-2020 21:50:19
:: smiles at Grey :: TAC2: Looks like we are back on roof duty tomorrow, then.
CEO: That is wonderful news, Ilaihr! We can hope that everything comes to life tomorrow, with even if it takes a bit more cleaning.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Feb-2020 21:52:57
::Smiles at Tailor:: CMO: Given enough time, perhaps I could juryrig a fix, or find an alternate power storage solution.
CMO Lt Tailor 19-Feb-2020 21:53:19
CEO: Do you think there would be a way to build new batteries, maybe from existing materials?
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Feb-2020 21:53:24
CO: Indeed Captain. ::Smiles at her as well.
CO Capt Harper 19-Feb-2020 21:53:29
:: eyes the food synthesizer, daring to hope it still works, given how much easier that would make things for her crew ::
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Feb-2020 21:53:32
:: takes a break for some food, enjoying a skewer of rabbit ::
MED Lt Acacia 19-Feb-2020 21:54:17
:: is pleased to see Jude scarfing down her food and finds it reminding her that she should eat as well, and she drifts back outside to pick at some of the meat ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 19-Feb-2020 21:54:37
:: has settled on the opposite of the fire, muttering quietly to herself as she finished with the hide she was working on ::
NAV Lt Navarro 19-Feb-2020 21:54:49
:: reclines by the fire on a bit of patio furniture, eating a fish filet ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Feb-2020 21:55:36
CMO: If anyone has their commbadges available, I may be able to use the internal power cells as the capacitor. But my guarantees are much less, if I were to try and rebuild the capacitors under the house.
CO Capt Harper 19-Feb-2020 21:58:31
:: munches on the deer, putting the thoughts of electricity aside in favor of tomorrow's mission ::
SCI LtJG Jude 19-Feb-2020 21:59:46

MED Lt Acacia 19-Feb-2020 22:01:06
:: finishes the chunk of deer she picked for herself, reclining by the fire and allowing herself to relax a bit ::
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Feb-2020 22:01:28
:: reaches for another rabbit skewer, licking her fingers ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Feb-2020 22:01:45
::Chews more on his food, pondering to himself.::
CMO: I still find myself wondering about the purpose of all this.
CMO Lt Tailor 19-Feb-2020 22:03:21
CEO: I'm not sure if any of us had their comm badges on... Yeah, this whole thing seems like a test, actually.
CTO LtC Wolfe 19-Feb-2020 22:03:40
:: steps over to the table where the food is and takes a few bites. This is certainly much more bountiful than the past days have been. ::
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Feb-2020 22:03:54
:: nods at Dr. Tailor :: CMO: Yes... a test.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 19-Feb-2020 22:04:11
CEO/CMO/CSO: Someone's gonna get their ass kicked when we get back to the ship if this is a damn test. :: grumbles and stalks over to grab a skewer ::
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Feb-2020 22:04:34
:: quirks a brow at her ::
MED Lt Acacia 19-Feb-2020 22:04:46
:: laughs out loud :: All: A test? It's ambitious to hope for so much order in the universe.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 19-Feb-2020 22:05:32
MED: Then what do you think it is? :: turns to stare at Acacia, expression unreadable in the shadows dancing from the firelight over her face ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Feb-2020 22:05:33
::Laughs.:: MED: Oh, you'll find many higher races are fond of tests.
CO Capt Harper 19-Feb-2020 22:05:56
:: follows along with the Colonel, still munching on the deer ::
MED Lt Acacia 19-Feb-2020 22:06:06
:: shrugs, nodding like, okay that's fair ::
CMO Lt Tailor 19-Feb-2020 22:06:14
All: Like we're rats being put through a maze. But it of course could be completely random that we're all thrown down here, in pairs.. each with a sleeping mat and fire that doesn't work.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 19-Feb-2020 22:06:27
CEO: I don't care if it's a bloody-damn immortal race, someone's still gonna get their ass kicked.
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Feb-2020 22:06:33
:: scowls, then tears into her rabbit ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Feb-2020 22:06:43
CMO: I was alone, when I awoke. ::Chuckles.::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 19-Feb-2020 22:07:34
CEO: You're pretty much the best one out of all us to wake up alone, sir. :: jabs her skewer towards Ilaihr as she tore off another bite ::
SCI LtJG Jude 19-Feb-2020 22:07:35
:: groans in exasperation :: I hate to admit it but at this point I just wanna go home. Even my mother is less horrible than this.
MED Lt Acacia 19-Feb-2020 22:07:38
:: looks at Grey, shrugging :: TAC2: My guess was we were tossed here as a distraction so someone could make off with Atlantis.
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Feb-2020 22:07:55
MED: Then why not the whole crew?
MED: Why just us?
TAC2 1Lt Grey 19-Feb-2020 22:08:09
MED: OH that sure as hell makes me feel better! :: grabs another skewer, tearing the meat off viciously ::
CMO Lt Tailor 19-Feb-2020 22:08:56
CEO: So we weren't all in pairs. And I'd almost forgotten, Navarro was alone also.
CTO LtC Wolfe 19-Feb-2020 22:08:57
:: thinks as he chews :: CO: You know, Captain... :: swallows the current bite :: I think we need to have you along. Who else knows Gencodian?
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Feb-2020 22:08:59
TAC2: We are but children's playthings to some of them. They enjoy testing us; either for their own sick amusement, or to teach us something. ::Takes another mouthful, before spotting a bug and catching it out of the air; adding it to his meat full mouth.:: Humility, Respect, maybe they want Fear and Despair....

TAC2 1Lt Grey 19-Feb-2020 22:10:08
:: plops down unceremoniously on the ground, pulling the skewer out of her mouth boredly :: CEO: Someone's still gonna get their ass kicked. I don't care what fucking lesson they're trying to teach or what the hell they're trying to do with us.

:: pinches her chin, not used to considering herself for away missions :: CTO: That... is a good point. Who else?

MED Lt Acacia 19-Feb-2020 22:12:00
:: wiggles her fingers :: TAC2: Ooh, I'm a.. sentient dust cloud, I don't even have eyes!
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Feb-2020 22:12:14
:: looks at the fruit, shakes her head, the goes back to scraping her hide while listening to the conversation ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 19-Feb-2020 22:12:43
CO: It has to be you, Captain.
CMO Lt Tailor 19-Feb-2020 22:13:20
All: It would be easier to take a ship if the senior staff wasn't there.. easier to force the lower ranks to do what they want rather than the commanders. They still need people who know what they are doing, but maybe aren't as likely to fight back.
CO Capt Harper 19-Feb-2020 22:13:30
:: smirks :: CTO: I know. I meant, who else should be on the team?
TAC2 1Lt Grey 19-Feb-2020 22:13:44
CO: What if... the people who dropped us here, knew you understood Gencodian...?
CO Capt Harper 19-Feb-2020 22:15:03
TAC2: If such people exist at all, it would be a clever misdirection.
CTO LtC Wolfe 19-Feb-2020 22:15:38
CO: I would have Commander Wright along. Her analysis is unmatched.
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Feb-2020 22:15:49
:: looks up as her name is mentioned ::
:: startles as she realizes Wolfe just complimented her ::
SCI LtJG Jude 19-Feb-2020 22:16:22
CTO: Complement me next!
CTO LtC Wolfe 19-Feb-2020 22:16:43
SCI: You climb things well.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Feb-2020 22:16:52
::Chuckles.:: CMO: I have been contemplating the... boundaries... the limitations of this... ::Looks around.:: Reality. I have tried several methods I know to ascertain whether we are under telepathic assault, but that seems woefully unlikely. Somekind of machine or probe of somekind, one that must be very advanced, which I believe is the most likely... but I have yet to find a... coding error if you will... a glitch in the programming that I can exploit.

:: gestures Harper's way with her skewer, nibbling off the last bits of meat :: All: Think about it... we end up here, with fires and blankets that vanish, paired up, and ending up finding here...

SCI LtJG Jude 19-Feb-2020 22:17:08
:: happily nods, continuing to eat ::

CTO LtC Wolfe 19-Feb-2020 22:17:53
CO: I'm torn between taking Commander Ilaihr along. It would be good to have his technical knowledge, but I think he's needed here more.
CO Capt Harper 19-Feb-2020 22:18:35
CTO: I agree. :: lowers her voice :: It is best that we not overextend him.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 19-Feb-2020 22:18:42
CO/CTO: I'd prefer to have Commander Ilaihr here... since it'll be me doing the cleaning of the solar tiles and he knows his way around the systems.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Feb-2020 22:18:47
CMO: Or we are under the thumb of a higher being, and then I really have no experiments that could confirm or deny them. They will only show their faces, if they have them by our conceptions, when they deem it necessary.
CMO Lt Tailor 19-Feb-2020 22:21:46
CEO: If it were a probe, it's apparently only affecting the senior staff. But they could learn that easily from ship's records I suppose. The question is, why...
MED Lt Acacia 19-Feb-2020 22:22:16
:: looks up at the stars, considering the idea of a test. ::
CO Capt Harper 19-Feb-2020 22:22:18
:: turns toward Tailor :: CMO: Doctor, between you or Dr. Acacia, who would you like to join the scouting party tomorrow?
:: very quickly reverting back to the regular command structure when there is a mission to plan ::

:: hears her name and sits up, looking to Tailor to let her decide ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 19-Feb-2020 22:23:31
CMO/CEO: Technically... it wouldn't even be senior staff alone, it's Alpha Bridge staff. Because... I wouldn't be considered a senior staff member, but I am a member of the Alpha Bridge staff, like everyone else here.
CO Capt Harper 19-Feb-2020 22:23:33
:: is actually honestly relieved to be planning a mission that is not focused solely on survival ::

CSO Cdr Wright 19-Feb-2020 22:24:20
:: hurries to finish scraping her hide so she can take a bath and prepare for the early morning ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 19-Feb-2020 22:24:26
CO: That sounds like a plan, Captain.
CMO Lt Tailor 19-Feb-2020 22:24:31
CO: I wouldn't mind finding out if there's anything of medical importance in this new house you've found, but I think either of us can do that. I'll leave it up to your decision, you know each of our strengths.

MED: Doctor Acacia, you are with us, at dawn.
