Lost Harbor
It is around lunchtime of the eighth day, a clear, cold day that must be spent preparing to leave the relatively comfortable house with partial electricity in favor of a journey into the unknown city in search of a new base. Make your preparations to carry as much as we can with us, since even though return here is possible, it would represent a significant investment of time.

SCI: Want to try?
MED Lt Acacia 18-Mar-2020 21:34:03
:: carefully contorts herself to stand up without stepping on the sled thing, chuckling and patting Tailor's shoulder :: CMO: You're also probably tired from building. Good job.

CSO Cdr Wright 18-Mar-2020 21:38:16
:: smiles back :: CO: I was thinking,... do you think we can synthesize some kind of travel ration with what's left of the fuel in that thing? :: points at the food synthesizer ::
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 21:38:54
CSO: I can see what is on the menu. Living out here, they must have had some sort of ehhh, trail mix, perhaps?
CSO Cdr Wright 18-Mar-2020 21:39:36
CO: I was thinking more like a bar form that's easy to transport, like a granola bar perhaps. But anything is better than nothing.
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 21:40:04
:: heads over to the synthesizer and touches the screen, bringing it to life ::

CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 21:42:10
:: her eyes dart over the screen, reading, somewhat slowly though ::
:: starts tapping through the menus, having to translate a few unfamiliar words from context ::
CMO Lt Tailor 18-Mar-2020 21:42:32
MED/SCI: Looks like testing is a success! I think it'll work fine.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 18-Mar-2020 21:42:46
:: has finished the sheet, setting the pile of cloth to the side before turning attention to the sled ::

NAV Lt Navarro 18-Mar-2020 21:44:15
:: shivering, he pulls the net out the near side of the river, then dumps out several fish to kill ::

:: jumps up from the sled ::
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 21:44:28

:: puts the much-lighter sled easily on the porch, in position ::
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 21:44:58
:: taps a button that she thinks will do the trick, and a plate of what looks to be some kind of meat jerky appears ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 18-Mar-2020 21:45:28
:: with the spears very neatly stacked, walks into the house, ready for some grub. :: CO: Captain. :: nods ::
XO Cdr Kuari 18-Mar-2020 21:45:51
:: is clean and looks over Kate's shoulder ::
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 21:46:20
CTO: Colonel! Perhaps you would like to give this a try? :: picks up the plate of jerky and offers it ::
CMO Lt Tailor 18-Mar-2020 21:46:54
MED: We'd better gather up all of the medical supplies.
XO Cdr Kuari 18-Mar-2020 21:47:19
:: looks at the jerky, then at Wolfe, waiting for his opinion ::
NAV Lt Navarro 18-Mar-2020 21:47:27
:: gathers up his clothes, not waiting to dry this time, and drags the net full of dead fish back to the fire ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 18-Mar-2020 21:48:25
:: takes the jerky and sniffs it :: CO: With pleasure, Captain. :: takes a bite ::
MED Lt Acacia 18-Mar-2020 21:48:26
:: smirks, retrieving the backpack into which she spent the morning doing just that and offers it to Tailor for inspection :: CMO: You're welcome to make another pass through the house.
CTO LtC Wolfe 18-Mar-2020 21:48:52
:: chews thoughtfully. ::
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 21:49:11
ACTION> What appears to be jerky is actually jerky, tasting similar to the deer-like animal that Kuari killed a couple of days ago.
CTO LtC Wolfe 18-Mar-2020 21:49:17
:: chews thoughtfully, looking up and to the left ::
:: continues chewing, looking up and to the right ::
:: keeps on chewing, because it's jerky, and it's rude to speak with your mouth full. ::
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 21:50:07
:: waits patiently for the Colonel's evaluation ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 18-Mar-2020 21:50:11
:: chews, looking Captain Harper dead in the eye... ::
CSO Cdr Wright 18-Mar-2020 21:50:14
:: waits impatiently ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 18-Mar-2020 21:50:35
:: can't. stop. chewing. ::
XO Cdr Kuari 18-Mar-2020 21:50:49
:: lifts an eye ridge ::
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 21:50:56
All: Well, he has yet to spit it out...
MED Lt Acacia 18-Mar-2020 21:50:58
:: has gathered up both med kits, all medical supplies from the house, and her new roll of bandages in the bag she hands Tailor ::
XO Cdr Kuari 18-Mar-2020 21:51:12
All: I'm thinking too chewy.
CTO LtC Wolfe 18-Mar-2020 21:51:47
:: chews some more, finally swallowing. :: CO: That is some very good jerky. And I consider myself a connoisseur of such. :: turns to Kuari :: XO: The chewiness is actually nice on this.
NAV Lt Navarro 18-Mar-2020 21:52:13
:: arrives at the fire with the net full of fish, dropping both it and his clothes as he tries to get warm ::
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 21:52:23
:: nods in approval ::
CSO Cdr Wright 18-Mar-2020 21:52:31
CO: Seems like that's a winner. Let's synthesize as much as we can.
CMO Lt Tailor 18-Mar-2020 21:52:38
::blinks:: MED: Looks good, that's just about everything.
SCI LtJG Jude 18-Mar-2020 21:52:45
:: walked in, heard his evaluation, and laughed ::
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 21:52:57
:: tries some of the jerky herself, then nods in agreement with Wright as she chews, and chews, and chews ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 18-Mar-2020 21:53:05
:: touches the sled with her uninjured hand, tracing over the build slowly before pushing herself into a standing position, leaning on the doorframe, listening and watching ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 18-Mar-2020 21:53:12
CSO: Synthesize??!?
CSO Cdr Wright 18-Mar-2020 21:53:16
:: goes back to digging in the cabinets for any kind of sealable container ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 18-Mar-2020 21:53:19
:: looks shocked ::
MED Lt Acacia 18-Mar-2020 21:53:25
:: grins, giving a firm nod :: CMO: Thinking ahead. :: she heads for the house to check out what the others are up to ::
XO Cdr Kuari 18-Mar-2020 21:53:28
:: peers back down at the jerky :: CO: If we can make enough for everyone, then we can just eat what I brought home for dinner.
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 21:53:40
:: still chewing, she starts the machine on producing as much as it can ::
:: finally swallows the jerky :: XO: Oh, you brought dinner?
CMO Lt Tailor 18-Mar-2020 21:54:17
::puts the bag onto the pile of supplies, keeping it at the top so it's easily accessible::
XO Cdr Kuari 18-Mar-2020 21:56:01
CO: There is rabbit cooking, yes. :: looks out towards the door and spots Wolfe's spear pile, curious ::
MED Lt Acacia 18-Mar-2020 21:56:50
:: peers at the replicated jerkey, deeply inhaling the cooking meats as she passes them :: Self: Mm.
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 21:57:16
XO: Nicely done! :: keeps taking the jerky off the synthesizer and putting it on the counter as it appears ::
:: tapping the button over and over and over ::
CSO Cdr Wright 18-Mar-2020 21:59:02
Self: Aha! :: finds a small stash of some kind of resealable plastic-like bags at the back of a drawer ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 18-Mar-2020 21:59:07
:: takes another, small, piece :: CO: This stuff is synthesized?
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 21:59:15
CTO: It is!
CTO: Pretty good, is it not?
SCI LtJG Jude 18-Mar-2020 21:59:24
CO: Be careful there, captain. Don't want to hurt your finger. :: grins, obviously joking ::
MED Lt Acacia 18-Mar-2020 21:59:25
:: watches the synthesizer, tilting her head :: Self: Neat.
XO Cdr Kuari 18-Mar-2020 21:59:44
:: looks at the replicating jerky one last time, deciding she'll come back to check on the progress later and looks out towards the spears :: CTO: Are those your spears?
CSO Cdr Wright 18-Mar-2020 21:59:51
:: opens one, sniffs it, shrugs, and starts stuffing it full of the synthesized jerky ::
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 22:00:08
:: with mock gravitas :: SCI: Oh yes, I will take precautions.
CTO LtC Wolfe 18-Mar-2020 22:00:18
CO: I'm impressed, Captain. :: turns to Kuari at the door :: XO: They are. They're for all of us. Everybody gets one before we head out.
XO Cdr Kuari 18-Mar-2020 22:00:43
:: goes outside to inspect Wolfe's handiwork ::
NAV Lt Navarro 18-Mar-2020 22:00:46
:: finally gets warm and dry, and puts his clothes back on before getting the fish out of the net ::
MED Lt Acacia 18-Mar-2020 22:01:04
:: turns, now interested in the spears as well. She follows after Kuari ::
CSO Cdr Wright 18-Mar-2020 22:01:24
CTO: Wolfe, how... awkward would it be for you to carry a bucket full of water?
CTO LtC Wolfe 18-Mar-2020 22:01:34
:: thinks a moment :: CO: Maybe when we find Atlantis, we can take some of the replicators with us to study.
XO Cdr Kuari 18-Mar-2020 22:02:35
:: notices the net full of fish, distracted momentarily before deciding she can help with that shortly, then sits next to the spears and picks one up to look it over ::
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 22:03:09
CTO: Believe me, I want to study this tech as much as we can. :: turns back to it as the synthesizer complains about having no fuel ::
Well, that is all unless anyone can find more fuel.
CSO Cdr Wright 18-Mar-2020 22:03:39
:: cramming the bag as full of jerky as possible, shaking it to get it to settle and create more room ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 18-Mar-2020 22:04:25
CSO: I don't think it would be a problem. It would only be so if something attacked us on the way. :: turns back to Harper :: CO: It would move our food replication abilities half a century ahead.
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 22:04:47
CTO: It does seem to be tastier than our replicators, does it not?
CSO Cdr Wright 18-Mar-2020 22:05:15
:: runs out of space before she runs out of jerky, and begins filling a second bag ::
XO Cdr Kuari 18-Mar-2020 22:05:17
:: notices how straight the spear is, and how sharp the point is, approving with a smile ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 18-Mar-2020 22:06:38
CO: It seems that sometimes our replicators can... misalign? Flavors and textures that just aren't quite right. Passable, but not totally correct.
MED Lt Acacia 18-Mar-2020 22:06:38
:: grabs a spear and gives it a few test-swings, nodding approvingly ::
CMO Lt Tailor 18-Mar-2020 22:06:47
::finishes tidying up inside, looking for anything she might have forgotten; finds one of her pinch pots in the kitchen and wraps it up carefully to add to the pile of supplies::
XO Cdr Kuari 18-Mar-2020 22:07:14
:: nods as she watches Acacia ::
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 22:07:21
CTO: If their food synthesizers were so good, why is there no general-purpose replicator, I wonder?
CSO Cdr Wright 18-Mar-2020 22:07:49
:: fills the bucket that she meticulously washed out earlier with water from the sink and beckons to Wolfe :: CTO: We need all the drinking water we can carry. I know this is awkward, but do you think you can manage it?
MED Lt Acacia 18-Mar-2020 22:07:50
:: has 4/10 form but spears is not what she is paid for ::
SCI LtJG Jude 18-Mar-2020 22:08:00
CO: Perhaps they invested their time in food replication and hand-made everything else.
CTO LtC Wolfe 18-Mar-2020 22:08:26
:: looks around :: CO: Might be that because we're in what is most likely a house, they might have used a more central unit for non-food items. :: CSO: Of course. Commander.
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 22:08:27
SCI: It is possible. We certainly appreciate handmade goods despite our replicators.
CSO Cdr Wright 18-Mar-2020 22:09:14
:: grabs a cup or two, some silverware and a large pot as well and makes sure they are included in the supplies, then hands over the remaining three storage bags for cooked meats to be stored in ::
NAV Lt Navarro 18-Mar-2020 22:09:46
:: starts to clean the fish he caught ::
XO Cdr Kuari 18-Mar-2020 22:10:49
:: leaves the spears alone and begins to help Navarro with the fish ::
NAV Lt Navarro 18-Mar-2020 22:11:15
XO: Gracias, Commander.
MED Lt Acacia 18-Mar-2020 22:11:43
:: sets the spear she tried back on the pile and goes to check on the food, maybe grab a bite ::
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 22:11:49
:: sees if she can get anything else out of the synthesizer with the last bit of fuel, and manages a hot drink ::
XO Cdr Kuari 18-Mar-2020 22:12:15
NAV: Nice catch. We should have a good meal tonight, and be supplied for travel.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 18-Mar-2020 22:12:16
::Searches through the house, giving it a once over, filling his pockets and sleeves with anything he thinks may be useful, or at the very least handy.::
NAV Lt Navarro 18-Mar-2020 22:13:05
XO: ¡Si! Add it to what you caught and it will be quite the meal.
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 22:13:29
:: picks the hot drink up and sniffs it as the synthesizer grumpily powers down ::
XO Cdr Kuari 18-Mar-2020 22:13:32
:: nods, then looks over at the rabbit to check its progress on the spit ::
MED Lt Acacia 18-Mar-2020 22:13:51
:: finds Navarro cleaning fish and sits down to help him. She grins, impressed by his haul :: NAV: You've become quite the fisherman.
NAV Lt Navarro 18-Mar-2020 22:14:29
:: smiles at Emily :: MED: I had only fished with a pole, but what can I say? I had a good teacher with the net.
CSO Cdr Wright 18-Mar-2020 22:14:35
:: also heads outside and joins Navarro and Acacia with the fish :: NAV/MED: Could you use an extra pair of hands?
NAV Lt Navarro 18-Mar-2020 22:14:45
CSO: More hands make less work!
MED Lt Acacia 18-Mar-2020 22:14:50
:: chuckles, shrugging and gesturing for Wright to sit if she wants ::
CSO Cdr Wright 18-Mar-2020 22:15:21
:: smiles and sits down, getting to work on cleaning fish ::
SCI LtJG Jude 18-Mar-2020 22:15:28
CO: If the Genecodians valued handmade goods over replicated ones, that says something about them. That they had an eye for detail and a desire to improve on what they make.
MED Lt Acacia 18-Mar-2020 22:15:30
:: makes for light work with the many hands or something like that, slicing up the fish much more easily now that she's been practicing it for days ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 18-Mar-2020 22:15:54
:: moves over to join Navarro, Acacia, and Wright, careful of her injuries, settling down near Acacia, content to just listen :: NAV/MED/CSO:... could I help in some way? I still have one good hand! :: shows her good hand ::
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 22:15:58
:: sips at the hot drink, finding it almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea ::
CSO Cdr Wright 18-Mar-2020 22:16:30
:: looks at Grey, then at Emily ::
CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 22:17:09
:: swallows the drink, smiling from the taste, and the warmth :: SCI: That would make sense, from what I saw on Gencodia itself.
MED Lt Acacia 18-Mar-2020 22:17:24
:: glances over, calmly nodding :: TAC2: You can keep us company, if nothing else. How are you feeling?
CMO Lt Tailor 18-Mar-2020 22:18:02
::Looks at the pile of stuff, wondering whether she forgot anything. Snaps her fingers:: Self: Blankets! ::turns go to get the blankets off of the bed she was sleeping in::
NAV Lt Navarro 18-Mar-2020 22:18:08
:: sticks some fish on a stick, then hands it to Grey :: TAC2: You can hold this over the fire while you talk.
XO Cdr Kuari 18-Mar-2020 22:18:21
:: notices there is quite a crowd around the fish now ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 18-Mar-2020 22:19:07

CO Capt Harper 18-Mar-2020 22:26:40
All: We will follow the river into the city and search for a base nearby, so the net will still be useful. Though... the river may be wider there.
MED Lt Acacia 18-Mar-2020 22:27:49
