Lost Harbor
Atlantis / atlantis-mission
Captain Kathryn Harper has fallen. Hoping to create a temporal paradox, she sacrificed her life to enter the heavily-irradiated chamber containing the malfunctioning Gencodian reactor that she believed brought us here. Before ultimately succumbing to the incredible amount of radiation, Harper was successful in powering the device down, but now lies dead against it. All is quiet in the facility that once hummed with energy from the overloading machine…

TAC2 1Lt Grey 27-May-2020 21:16:43

CTO LtC Wolfe 27-May-2020 21:16:57
:: turns now, with Jude stopped in her tracks, to take in the Captain and her condition. While the rest of the crew is safe behind the glass, it would not even be safe to take the moment necessary to go in and grab her body. He takes in the reactions of those around him, and realizes that he has to be strength for everyone else... and for himself. And he embraces the fact that he will continue to be seen as an asshole for the rest of their lives, since now it is apparent that the captain failed, and they are stuck here forever. ::

XO Cdr Kuari 27-May-2020 21:18:41
:: looks back over at Harper's fallen form, the body of her friend.

MED Lt Acacia 27-May-2020 21:18:55

MED Lt Acacia 27-May-2020 21:21:03

::stares numbly into the reactor chamber where Harper breathed her last breath, then slowly picks herself up off of the floor where she'd sunk against a wall in shock while all of this went down:: All: C...can we get her out of there?

TAC2 1Lt Grey 27-May-2020 21:23:25
:: sighs, burying her head into her friend's shoulder before straightening, blinking back the tears trying to escape before rising, turning to go rejoin Wolfe and the others inside the inner chamber, emerging quietly, sighs, looking towards Harper's body carefully, gaze strangely unemotional then towards Wolfe, Kuari and Tailor ::

CSO Cdr Wright 27-May-2020 21:28:21

CO Capt Harper 27-May-2020 22:46:30
All: Something temporal is amiss here...
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 27-May-2020 22:47:20
Self: Hmmm, how strange. ::Chuckles to himself, before getting back to some personnel reviews he'd been putting off.::
XO Cdr Kuari 27-May-2020 22:47:54
:: offers the PADD to Harper ::
MED Lt Acacia 27-May-2020 22:49:00

CO Capt Harper 27-May-2020 22:49:10

CSO Cdr Wright 27-May-2020 22:49:32
Self: Emily's not here.
CMO Lt Tailor 27-May-2020 22:49:46
::thinks of the brush, flashes of memories coming back from the house and then the hotel:: Self: So it wasn't all dreams?
CTO LtC Wolfe 27-May-2020 22:50:05
:: continues scanning, but also pulls up the science scans of the planet as they're coming in. Tactical is not showing much. ::
NAV Lt Navarro 27-May-2020 22:50:24
:: also finds himself wondering about Emily, so he looks her up on the console, finding her in sickbay, nothing strange about that, so he's relieved ::
CO Capt Harper 27-May-2020 22:51:45
ACTION> Readings start to come in that indicate that the planet is uninhabited except for its plant and animal wildlife... but they also reveal ruined structures on a continent in the northern hemisphere, higher latitudes.
CSO Cdr Wright 27-May-2020 22:53:42
CO: There are ruined structures in the higher latitudes of the northern hemisphere... my memories are faint, but I think that matches. Shall we try to get a closer look?
CO Capt Harper 27-May-2020 22:54:15
CSO: I absolutely want a closer look. NAV: Adjust our orbit.
CMO Lt Tailor 27-May-2020 22:54:20

:: watches the viewscreen closely as they approach, occasionally looking down at the SCI readings ::
CO Capt Harper 27-May-2020 22:55:24

CSO Cdr Wright 27-May-2020 22:55:37
CO: I can't... quite make it out just yet...
NAV Lt Navarro 27-May-2020 22:56:24

CO Capt Harper 27-May-2020 22:57:20
ACTION> The outline of a ruined city along a river start to make themselves apparent to those that are watching for them.
MED Lt Acacia 27-May-2020 22:57:27
:: has calmed down considerably, now only about a third of what she says making any sense. :: Doctor: There aren't.. there aren't any pressures in my blood, it's fine.

:: sets the ship to auto station-keeping above the city with the impulse engines, then gets a flash of worry about Emily as he sees it :: CO: Captain, permission to go to sickbay?
CO Capt Harper 27-May-2020 22:59:48
There it is.
:: nods to Navarro, having an idea of his concern ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 27-May-2020 23:00:10
:: recognizes the shape of the city that he got to know so well. ::
XO Cdr Kuari 27-May-2020 23:00:12

:: swallows, her mouth suddenly dry ::
MED Lt Acacia 27-May-2020 23:02:02
:: twinges, looking up as Navarro enters. She tilts her head, confused :: NAV: Love? :: she mumbles, more fondly than she might have "yesterday", the two not even having reached 'the L word' in the real world yet ::
CO Capt Harper 27-May-2020 23:02:04
CSO: Commander, is there anything... temporally strange on the scanners?
SCI Lt Jude 27-May-2020 23:02:48
:: mumbles to herself :: Permission to lose my shit... :: continues on as if she said nothing ::
CSO Cdr Wright 27-May-2020 23:02:49
CO: Initiating chronoton scan.
NAV Lt Navarro 27-May-2020 23:03:24
:: finds nothing odd about being addressed with that word :: MED: Sí, amor, I am here. :: takes her hand and squeezes it :: Are you alright?
CO Capt Harper 27-May-2020 23:03:51
ACTION> Temporally, there is nothing out of the ordinary here.
CSO Cdr Wright 27-May-2020 23:04:25
CO: Everything comes back normal, Captain. If there was a disruption, there's no sign of it now.
MED Lt Acacia 27-May-2020 23:05:10
:: the on-call Doctor looks between the two, giving Navarro a concerned look, but letting him proceed. Emily looks at him, her eyes distant and unfocused. She squints :: NAV: I'm... I'm not really here. :: she theorizes tentatively ::
NAV Lt Navarro 27-May-2020 23:06:22
MED: You are here, I assure you. Most of the bridge crew... well, we all shared the experience of being stranded there...
CO Capt Harper 27-May-2020 23:06:27
:: nods :: All: Then we must get down there and investigate.
CTO: But first, a closer look, please?
CSO Cdr Wright 27-May-2020 23:07:31
:: groans :: CO: Propose taking a shuttle instead of beaming down so we can just fly back when we're ready.
XO Cdr Kuari 27-May-2020 23:07:38
:: feels sudden dread mixed with excitement and the idea of going down to the surface ::
MED Lt Acacia 27-May-2020 23:07:39
NAV: Being stranded, :: she agrees, with obvious recognition, then slips :: On an island--and we... I... :: she trails off, visibly distressed. The Doctor takes some notes in her chart, looking up at Navarro ::
SCI Lt Jude 27-May-2020 23:07:43
:: switches back to her message to Endilev, spamming her with messages about wanting to meet as soon as possible and she absolutely does not want to go back down to the planet ::
NAV Lt Navarro 27-May-2020 23:07:56
:: looks to the Doctor with concern in his eyes, questioning ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 27-May-2020 23:08:04
CO: Aye. :: zooms in on roughly where he thinks the hotel should be. ::
MED Lt Acacia 27-May-2020 23:08:08
Doctor> NAV: You had a similar experience, you said?
NAV Lt Navarro 27-May-2020 23:08:26
Doctor: Yes, along with most of the bridge crew.
CO Capt Harper 27-May-2020 23:09:10
ACTION> As Wolfe zooms in, a wild area along the river can be seen next to a ruined building...
MED Lt Acacia 27-May-2020 23:09:39
Doctor> :: the man raises an eyebrow, noting that down. :: NAV: I see. Well, she won't be on duty this shift, at least. I'll call the counselor..
CTO LtC Wolfe 27-May-2020 23:10:01
:: keeps zooming in slowly, adjusting to get the building he wants ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 27-May-2020 23:10:12

Endilev> :: Responds with confusion but an offer to schedule an appointment later that morning ::
CO Capt Harper 27-May-2020 23:11:19

Endilev> :: sends back an immediate reply that she's on her way ::
CO Capt Harper 27-May-2020 23:12:15
:: nods to Kuari :: XO: There's the courtyard... what is left of it, at least.
SCI Lt Jude 27-May-2020 23:12:32
:: sees the ruins of the hotel, and clenches her console, her knuckles turning white ::
XO Cdr Kuari 27-May-2020 23:12:41
CO: long ago?
NAV Lt Navarro 27-May-2020 23:12:49

MED Lt Acacia 27-May-2020 23:13:22
:: laughs wryly, coming to for just long enough to ask :: NAV: My notes?
CO Capt Harper 27-May-2020 23:13:46
