Lost Harbor
Atlantis / atlantis-mission
We find ourselves back aboard Atlantis as if we had never left, except for the shared memories of the year and a day we spent stranded in the past on the planet we now orbit. While attempting to solve the mystery of what happened, we must not forget our original mission here; disguised as a Yridian freighter, we are acting as bait to lure out a pirate that has commandeered an old Starfleet vessel.

CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 21:23:26

MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 21:25:20

NAV Lt Navarro 03-Jun-2020 21:25:53
:: nods again :: MED: Same day, and Commander Ilaihr is his usual self.
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 21:26:09
:: finally tears herself away and turns back to Kuari ::
XO: I want to get down there, but we are playing bait for a pirate ship at the moment.
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 21:26:44
:: laughs dryly, covering her face and groaning into her hands. She shakes her head slowly, once again confused :: NAV: And where's Emily?
NAV Lt Navarro 03-Jun-2020 21:27:16
MED: Right in front of me... but not quite her usual self. :: smiles ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 21:27:21

:: watches scanners for others ships in the vicinity ::
NAV Lt Navarro 03-Jun-2020 21:29:05

XO Cdr Kuari 03-Jun-2020 21:29:11
:: looks to Harper and considers :: CO: It would be compromising to be caught down there. After all this time, we could wait, although it's difficult...
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 21:30:11
:: glances over the scanners on her console, sighing as she looked back up at the main viewscreen ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 21:30:20
:: lets out a long breath as she perches on the front of her seat and Picard-maneuvers :: XO: Agreed.
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Jun-2020 21:31:16
:: with that thought, peers down at her small command console, poking at it, trying to get a better look at data from the planet ::
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 21:31:33
:: furrows her brow, falling still and growing distant for a long moment. She gives a single, slow nod :: NAV: Good.. good.
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 21:32:51
:: she leans forward and pinches her chin, thinking ::
:: sees Lexy lost in all the data coming in, so she turns to Jude :: SCI: Lieutenant, does the local wildlife include anything... lupine?
NAV Lt Navarro 03-Jun-2020 21:35:15
:: nods in agreement ::
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Jun-2020 21:35:36

:: deflates a bit, reaching out to take Navarro's hand :: NAV: I think.. there's.. :: she rubs her temple, groaning :: NAV: I forgot how many people are on this ship.
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 21:36:16
:: absently rubs her forearm ::
SCI Lt Jude 03-Jun-2020 21:36:39
:: turns to Harper :: CO: Aye. Numerous wolf-without-an-e-like creatures.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 21:37:01
:: snickers at the way Jude described the wolf creatures, stifling her giggles behind her hand ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 21:37:21
:: smirks :: SCI: Good for them.
NAV Lt Navarro 03-Jun-2020 21:37:51
:: squeezes her hand :: MED: You're sensing them, you mean?
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 21:38:29
All: Since one Wolfe-with-an-E would decimate the populate of E-less wolfs.
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 21:38:37
:: returns the squeeze, slowly starting to stabilize :: NAV: I've grown.. a lot more sensitive, and... all at once... :: she looks up, as if spotting something that isn't there, then sighs ::
SCI Lt Jude 03-Jun-2020 21:38:53
:: cackles ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 21:38:56
:: breaks into laughter at the captain's remark ::
NAV Lt Navarro 03-Jun-2020 21:38:58
:: completely unable to relate, but thinks that must be really weird ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 21:39:22
:: nods approvingly :: All: Indeed.
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Jun-2020 21:39:53
:: cocks her head at the strange conversation and looks about ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 21:39:55
:: cracks his knuckles ::
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 21:40:22
NAV: So we're.. still on a mission? From Starfleet? :: she tilts her head back and forth, wiggling her fingers :: NAV: Pirates.. right. Yes.
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 21:40:28
ACTION> Tactical sensors light up with a ship on long-range scans, incoming at high warp.
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 21:40:53
CO/All: Incoming, speaking of pirates. High warp.
NAV Lt Navarro 03-Jun-2020 21:41:19
MED: Pirates, yes, but the mission was at the request of the Free Fleets, I believe. At least we got it from Refuge.
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 21:41:32
:: hovers over the shields activator. ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 21:41:53
CTO: Stand by shields until we have a positive identification... and until they are closer.
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 21:42:00
CO: Aye.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 21:42:09
:: turns her attention down to the console, watching and waiting for orders ::
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 21:42:51
:: sits up slowly, still visibly dizzy. She pauses for a moment, letting her head settle, then jolts, suddenly realizing :: NAV: Oh f-.. I had--have--bridge duty. :: a nearby nurses raises an eyebrow at her ::
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Jun-2020 21:43:00
:: looks at Wolfe and immediately diverts her attention from the planet, focusing on the preliminary sensor feeds of the pirate ship ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 21:43:07
:: finally sits back in her chair, eyeing the viewer ::
:: laces her fingers, waiting ::
ACTION> The ship can be identified as Miranda-class, but broadcasts no transponder.
NAV Lt Navarro 03-Jun-2020 21:43:53
MED: Do you think that's a good idea right now, Emily? :: quietly ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 21:44:21
CO: It's an old Miranda-class vessel. No ident.
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 21:44:58
:: still can't quite focus her eyes, but manages a crooked smile :: NAV: I think.. it might help, actually. :: she looks around, mouthing the words 'sick bay'. ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 21:45:39
CTO: Right on cue, then. Continue to stand by on shields... we are just a hapless freighter, after all.
NAV Lt Navarro 03-Jun-2020 21:45:56
MED: Come on then. I'll walk you up. :: nods in understanding ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 21:46:05
CO: Aye, Captain. Poor us.
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 21:46:22
:: flashes him a grateful look, leaning on him for a few steps before mostly walking on her own as she follows him towards the turbolift ::
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Jun-2020 21:46:33
:: takes in Harper's words, imagining what they must appear to be to the incoming ship...playing the part of easy prey ::
NAV Lt Navarro 03-Jun-2020 21:46:49
:: enters the TL with Emily :: Bridge.
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 21:47:25
:: breathes a sigh of relief when the doors shut, taking the time the ride takes to compose herself for a smooth entry ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 21:47:26
:: waits, beginning to tap her foot while waiting for further orders ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 21:47:37
CTO: Look sharp, Colonel. This is no ordinary Miranda-class.
NAV Lt Navarro 03-Jun-2020 21:48:10
:: his mind still trying to sort out his own feelings ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 21:48:19
CO: No, Ma'am. I am ready with weapons and shields to give them any warm welcome that they may request.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 21:48:27
:: straightens at the Captain's words, glancing to Wolfe for instructions ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 21:48:44
:: is totally relaxed, feeling very, very at home. ::
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 21:49:15
:: straightens her hastily-applied uniform, making it look a bit more like she's put together. She looks around as the turbolift doors open, heading for her usual station. ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 21:49:25
CTO: While we wait, reference the database for the command codes of all missing Miranda-class vessels.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 21:49:38
:: grins at seeing Acacia enter, before turning back to her console to wait for orders ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 21:49:44
:: smiles :: CO: Aye, Captain.
NAV Lt Navarro 03-Jun-2020 21:49:56
:: heads for the helm with a lingering glance at Emily ::
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 21:51:10
:: plops down into the seat in front of the auxiliary medical console, closing her eyes for a moment to center herself before keying into the console like it was actually just yesterday :: Self: Hm. Alright. :: she clears her throat, glancing up :: CO/XO: Apologies for the tardiness. I... lost track of time?
NAV Lt Navarro 03-Jun-2020 21:51:23
:: takes his station, somewhat surprised that Harper didn't take it, but they are just orbiting ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 21:51:43
MED: Seems to be a common problem this morning, doctor. Do not worry about it.
MED: We will figure out what happened.
SCI Lt Jude 03-Jun-2020 21:52:01
:: fingers hover over her console ::
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 21:52:18
:: nods, feeling understood. She taps through the menus on her console, getting her muscle memory back under her ::
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Jun-2020 21:52:20
:: nods over at Acacia, not having a further thought about it ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 03-Jun-2020 21:53:18
::Turns in his seat.:: CO: Captain... are you aware of how many Mirandas have been in service during the course of it's extensive 150+ year history?
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 21:53:44
:: grins :: CEO: Not precisely, no. I am sure there were many.
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 21:55:04
:: leans back in her chair, turning to watch the viewscreen curiously, as she's not really needed for this. ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 03-Jun-2020 21:55:18
CO: It is the Workhorse of the Federation. I would wager over ten thousand have been built over the years, and perhaps 40% were destroyed in battle, maybe 5-10% simply lost.
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 21:55:45
CEO: I think we are about to find one of the lost ones...
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 21:55:48
CEO: Well, at least that narrows it down a bit.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 21:56:08
:: snorts, remaining quiet and waiting for her orders ::
SCI Lt Jude 03-Jun-2020 21:56:15
:: raises eyebrows, slightly impressed he knows the stats. she shouldn't be, but she is ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 03-Jun-2020 21:57:00
CTO: They are essentially used to be like oversized shuttles.
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 21:57:07
ACTION> The Miranda-class pops out of warp.
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 21:57:31
:: shudders, then bites it back ::
SCI Lt Jude 03-Jun-2020 21:57:53
:: turns head :: MED: You ok?
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 21:58:46
:: stretches her fingers, eyes not quite focusing as she looks at Jude to answer :: SCI: Just.. disoriented. :: she gives a wry smile, knowing Jude probably gets it better than anyone ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 21:59:42
:: puts the vessel onscreen and gives it a passive scan :: CO: Well. They are certainly well-armed.
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:00:09
CTO: Let us see what they do when they realize that we are, too.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 22:00:16
:: whistles in slight surprise at the weapons highlighted, looking to Wolfe ::
SCI Lt Jude 03-Jun-2020 22:00:26
MED: I find this... :: meaning the background 'noise' of the crew :: MED: Comforting. :: looks back down at console ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:00:56
ACTION> The Miranda looks like it raided an armory; Federation phasers, photon torpedoes, Romulan plasma torpedoes, a Klingon disruptor, and even a kinetic impactor cannon.
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 22:01:36
:: taps a finger on her leg thoughtfully. She goes silent so as not to speak over the others :: ~SCI: I had spent a lot of energy blocking it out...~ :: she drifts, then snaps back :: ~SCI: I suppose it's not awful.~
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:01:44
:: hides his grin, but there's a chance Kuari might notice if she's looking the right way :: CO: Aye.
TAC LCdr T’Lira 03-Jun-2020 22:01:47
:: checks the scans of the enemy ship and cannot help but to wonder where exactly they are putting all of that on such a small ship, but promptly remembers previous knowledge of the Miranda-class and their... customizability ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 03-Jun-2020 22:02:09
::Sees the vessel on screen, and laughs; but not mockingly, sighing after almost reminiscently.::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:02:20
SCI: Magnify the picture.
SCI Lt Jude 03-Jun-2020 22:02:40
:: taps console, magnifying ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 22:03:06
:: blinks in surprise at the variety weapons on the ship, before sighing and leaning on her console slightly, waiting ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:03:10
:: stands and takes in their opponent, still closing ::
SCI Lt Jude 03-Jun-2020 22:03:33
:: looks at viewscreen :: ~MED: This is my norm. I am so used to it that... anything less than is like deafening silence.~
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:04:06
ACTION> The once-noble Miranda-class light cruiser is now painted somewhat garishly in blacks and reds, bristling with weapons it was never meant to carry.
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:04:07
:: sends a message to T'Lira to work on finding out which vessel this is and match it to a kill code ::
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 22:04:27
:: gives a slow, thoughtful nod, her expression grim as she mulls over something that bothers her while watching the viewscreen ::
TAC LCdr T’Lira 03-Jun-2020 22:04:39
:: sends an acknowledgement and begins searching the databases, comparing the ship to any known missing Miranda-class ships ::
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Jun-2020 22:04:49
:: is focused on the varied weaponry, attempting to sort through the impact the unusual load would present, both on power drain and tactical threat ::
NAV Lt Navarro 03-Jun-2020 22:04:59
:: ready for combat maneuvers as needed, going through a few of the captain's favorites ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:05:12
:: messages Grey to work on narrowing down the database to just the rogue vessels that were lost in some way or another ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 22:06:51
:: acknowledges the message, pulling up the databases to start searching for the Miranda-class vessels lost in one way or another, frowning as she flicked through the records ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:07:12
ACTION> The pirate ship does not obviously match to any of the missing Miranda-class vessels, possibly due to its extensive modifications.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 22:07:53
CO: Do we have any knowledge of when the pirates started... causing trouble? That might help with narrowing the records down. :: looks up from her console ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:08:54
TAC2: Only recently, but that does not mean this ship is newly-missing. She may have been lost for a century.
TAC2: Until pirates found her, that is.
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:09:38
CO/TAC2: But thankfully, we only have 500 to 1,000 candidates.
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:09:40
They must have us on visuals by now, even with their antiquated equipment...
SCI Lt Jude 03-Jun-2020 22:09:47
:: hums, mentally going through different options, then goes through databases, trying to match the warp core ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:09:56
CO: Do we know that it's antiquated?
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 22:10:05
CO: Mmh, okay. :: dives back into the database-hunt :: CTO: That doesn't... make me feel any better.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 03-Jun-2020 22:10:37
CO: It could be a copy.
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:10:40
CTO: No. Either they have seen us by now and are not intimidated by a Sovereign, or they are not looking.
CEO: An interesting thought, Commander. It was certainly a successful enough design to copy.
:: smirks :: Though that would put a dampener on our argument that their ship is stolen property.
SCI Lt Jude 03-Jun-2020 22:13:02
CO: Maybe not stolen property, but stolen design, though. Is that... even something we care about? :: scratches head ::
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 22:13:19
:: tilts her head, thinking for another moment and pulling up one of her research projects to work on so her hands have something to do ::
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Jun-2020 22:13:37
:: frowns :: CEO: Why copy a design of a ship that already has so many available?
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:13:39
SCI: That would be a question for the JAG office. :: turns back toward the main viewer, watching the approach ::
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 22:14:08
XO: Cover. Camo.. flag? Camoflag?
XO: Camouflage!
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:15:17
:: steeples her hands, debating the precise moment to play their hand ::
:: decides that this is enough :: Red alert, shields up!
SCI: Hail them.
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Jun-2020 22:18:51
:: raises her head as high as she can while lying down, ready to present strength to the viewscreen ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 03-Jun-2020 22:18:58
XO: As the captain said, it was successful, and she is a sturdy design. Why not copy it?
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:18:59
:: raises shields, goes to red alert before the words have finished leaving Harper's mouth. :: CO: With pleasure.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 22:19:10
:: waits for instructions, checking her hair with one hand to make sure it didn't slip out of the bun ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 03-Jun-2020 22:19:21
XO: And there are other reasons to do so; especially when you consider how it looks.
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 22:19:31
:: straightens her hair, donning an air of arrogance as others seem to prepare for the camera ::
SCI Lt Jude 03-Jun-2020 22:19:32
:: nods, opening the line :: CO: Hailing frequencies open.
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:20:33
:: stands and clasps her hands behind her back, standing proudly :: +Hail+ This is Captain Kathryn Harper of the Federation Starship Atlantis. You are in possession of stolen Starfleet property and are hereby ordered to surrender.
ACTION> With no reply, the Miranda-class continues to close, coming up on weapons range.
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:21:27
:: has a couple of photons and a couple of quantums trained on the Miranda's port nacelle. ::
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Jun-2020 22:22:08
:: frowns when there is no answer, and glances to the side at Tactical ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:22:54
:: has desired this moment for the better part of a year. ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:22:58
:: somewhat exasperated, she continues :: +Hail+ Despite your modifications, you must realize that ship's firepower is still no match for that of a Sovereign-class. Surrender, and let us avoid the fight.
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 22:23:24
:: grips and ungrips her fist to calm herself ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:24:53
ACTION> The Miranda enters weapons range, and responds... by firing a plasma torpedo before making an impulse turn that should be impossible for a ship of its class.
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:25:18
:: sees the maneuver :: Self: Beautiful.
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:25:19
:: sees the green blob incoming :: NAV: Evasives! CTO: Fire at will, but target engines.
:: sits back down ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:25:51
CO: Aye :: begins firing at the port nacelle, in the ship's new position ::
NAV Lt Navarro 03-Jun-2020 22:25:53
:: pulls the ship hard to port and down, attempting to evade the plasma torpedo ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 22:27:05
:: obeys the orders to fire at will, neatly targeting the engines of the other ship, calculating to try and make sure she still hits her target, hopefully... ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:27:25
ACTION> The plasma torpedo grazes our shields, disappearing harmlessly into the black.
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:27:54
TAC/TAC2: Focus on their port nacelle. Let's slow 'em down a bit.
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:28:05
ACTION> The Miranda manages to evade most of our fire, with its shields absorbing the rest.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 22:28:25
CTO: Yes sir. :: adjusts her firing positions to target the port nacelles ::
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Jun-2020 22:28:43
:: finds the pirate's move interesting, watching as Tactical responds expertly, the ship no match for Atlantis on the surface, but she is wary anyway ::
NAV Lt Navarro 03-Jun-2020 22:28:47
:: finds the smaller ship to be an agile target, but he manages to bring Atlantis about to give the tactical officers good firing solutions ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:29:39
CTO: Send the prefix codes of all the missing Mirandas.
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:30:07
CO: Aye, Captain. :: turns to T'Lira :: TAC: You have those codes ready?
TAC LCdr T’Lira 03-Jun-2020 22:31:04
CTO: I do. :: readies them up in a packet to send ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:31:35
TAC: Send them, Commander.

ACTION> A few more of our quantum torpedoes find the shields of the nimble target, weakening them somewhat, but after a few quantum hits, a normal Miranda would be in dire straits while this one is not.
TAC LCdr T’Lira 03-Jun-2020 22:32:18
:: sends the packet to the Miranda ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:32:48
ACTION> Our brute-force attack with the prefix codes takes a moment as they are tried...
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:33:17
Self: Fascinating... :: taps at his console ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:33:37
ACTION> The Miranda comes about and fires a spread of plasma torpedos, photon torpedoes, with a side of disruptor shots.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 03-Jun-2020 22:34:04
::Distributes more power to the shield facings being hit.::
NAV Lt Navarro 03-Jun-2020 22:34:17
No no no you don't... :: spins Atlantis up and spirals away, then reverses course, straining the intertial dampeners ::
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Jun-2020 22:34:35
:: frowns at the overall power of their enemy, her mind trying to understand what kind of technology could be accounting for this ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:35:03
ACTION> The Miranda finally accepts the code for the USS Brattain, NCC-21166.
ACTION> A few of their shots still slam into our shields, despite Navarro's efforts.
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:36:22
CO: We're in. It's the Brattain, lost in 2326. We can update the record when we finish. What would you like them to do?
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:36:52
CTO: Lower their shields, and power down their weapons and engines.
SCI Lt Jude 03-Jun-2020 22:37:17
:: taps her console, quickly reading through the records of the ship :: Self: How the hell did they get out of Tyken's Rift?
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:37:19
:: complies... or makes the Brattain comply :: CO: Aye. Let's see if they feel like talking now.
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:37:48
ACTION> The Brattain's computer reports that it has no access to shields, weaponry, or engines.
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:38:33
CO: Well. Looks like they disconnected the computer from the systems you requested. Any others you'd like me to try?
SCI Lt Jude 03-Jun-2020 22:39:49
:: mumbles to self :: Self: Damn suicide ship.
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Jun-2020 22:40:01
:: listens to the bridge crew as they work, pondering what has proved to be the very modified USS Brattain ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:40:28
:: refrains from saying self-destruct... for now :: CTO: Environmental.
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:40:41
CO: Aye. :: complies ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:40:58
ACTION> The Brattain comes about again and unleashes another volley of various and sundry weaponry.
SCI Lt Jude 03-Jun-2020 22:41:46

All: Hang on! :: slides the ship violently to port, eschewing the normal turn ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:42:57
ACTION> Brattain's computer reports no access to environmental controls.
SCI Lt Jude 03-Jun-2020 22:43:24
DEITIES! :: her chair spins the other direction ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:44:04
:: shakes his head :: CO: Computer has no access to their environmental controls.
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:44:04
:: buckles her seatbelt ::
CTO: What does it have access to?
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:45:28
:: pings the Brattain's computer to see what it can affect :: CO: Inquiring.
:: directs Grey and T'Lira to keep on firing :: TAC: Trade with me.
TAC LCdr T’Lira 03-Jun-2020 22:46:13
:: looks up from her console :: CTO: Copy.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 22:46:46
:: fingers are flying to keep the firing ongoing, targeting the nacelle that was closest to the Atlantis ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:47:33
ACTION> Brattain's computer responds with food replicators, minor power distribution, and some lighting.
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:47:40
:: waits until T'Lira is secured at his console and then takes her workstation so he can get a better view of what's going on over on Brattain ::
TAC LCdr T’Lira 03-Jun-2020 22:48:20
:: checks the targeting quickly, looking for any weaknesses in the shields ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:48:40
ACTION> Brattain's shields absorb a few more shots, and fall to 60%.
NAV Lt Navarro 03-Jun-2020 22:50:18
:: brings Atlantis around on another course that should provide some good firing opportunities ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:50:38
CO: Well, Captain... tell you what. With our access codes, we could make them a sandwich, flicker their lights, or redistribute power from their arboretum to their lounge. Beyond that, we might be able to... ooh, we can make their consoles display memes. :: keeps looking through the systems they can control. ::
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 22:51:28
:: thinks aloud :: Self: Exploding sandwich?
SCI Lt Jude 03-Jun-2020 22:51:39
CTO: Molotov cocktail?
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 22:51:56
CTO: Mentos and coke? :: offers ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:52:57
With food replicators, we could cause some damage, yes... TAC2: What are mentos and coke?
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 22:53:16
:: snorts :: TAC2: I don't know about that..
CO Capt Harper 03-Jun-2020 22:53:16
Keep up weapons fire in the meantime.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 22:53:42
:: grins :: CO: An explosive combination, not as done as actual explosions, but it causes plenty of chaos ::
SCI Lt Jude 03-Jun-2020 22:54:59
:: searches dictionary :: CO: Mentos is a brand of prepackaged scotch mints first produced in 1932. Coke is a carbonated soft drink, first invented in 1886.
MED Lt Acacia 03-Jun-2020 22:55:27
:: gestures, offering :: CO: A.. soda.. rocket.
CTO LtC Wolfe 03-Jun-2020 22:55:37
CO: We're not even sure that they have a replicator on their bridge. We might be relying on the unit in their ready room. If they haven't removed such creature comforts.
SCI Lt Jude 03-Jun-2020 22:55:44
:: gestures at Acacia :: CO: That.
TAC LCdr T’Lira 03-Jun-2020 22:56:11
:: thinks for a moment :: All: Perhaps if the replicators were used to produce something that requires large amounts of energy, it could draw power from other systems and provide us with an advantage.
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Jun-2020 22:56:22
:: blinks at the timing of the history lesson ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 03-Jun-2020 22:56:29
:: gestures to Acacia :: MED: Definitely. Remind me after this, to hunt down a video of mentos in coke for everyone unfamiliar with it to watch ::
