Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
The day after rescuing Queen Ashexana and her flagship Rixx from the Xovul, we continue to hide under the storms of an azure gas giant while repairs continue on the Rixx. The Queen's suggestion, upon returning to consciousness in our sickbay, was to repair the Rixx's cloak and extend it around Atlantis in order to escape together from the Xovul dreadnought searching for us. While the dreadnought lost our warp trail at the fake slipstream entry that Captain Harper created, it continues to scour this star system, and is getting closer…

:: deflates once more, but then nods :: CMO: I'm sure that you did. Thank you, Velina... I felt us go to warp. Are we cloaked and safe?
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Aug-2020 22:37:42
::Sighs, sensing the strain on the ship, but repairs and the increase in SIF and inertial dampeners are working; keeping the Rixx in a better state than the last short warp jump they made.

:: manages a smile, proud of Mr. Hadley and the rest of her remaining crew :: CMO: Thank you. How... how am I? I would like to get back to my ship since there is much to do.

CSO Cdr Wright 19-Aug-2020 22:42:25
+CEO+ Commander Ilaihr, Atlantis Bridge.
CMO Lt Tailor 19-Aug-2020 22:42:38
HRH: You've just had major surgery. I'd like to give it at least twenty-four hours recovery, since you've had abdominal injuries, especially.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Aug-2020 22:43:59
::Taps his badge.:: +CSO+: Come in, Commander Wright. ::Continues on, wandering down the corridors inspecting the greater extent of damage, now that he is no longer focused on the cloak.:: I may I be of assistance?
HRH Ashexana 19-Aug-2020 22:44:21
:: dips her head, closing her eyes, not used to not being in command, but ultimately concedes to the doctor's wisdom :: CMO: I yield to your judgement, Dr. Tailor.
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Aug-2020 22:44:38
:: looks back at the Captain, now that the communication line is open ::
CO Capt Harper 19-Aug-2020 22:45:07
+CEO+ Remarkable work over there, Commander Ilaihr!
HRH Ashexana 19-Aug-2020 22:45:39
:: and, ultimately, given the job they've done over the past day, she has to concede that her crew is fine without her ::
XO Cdr Kuari 19-Aug-2020 22:45:39
:: is still smiling, listening to the comm contentedly from her chair ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Aug-2020 22:46:48
+CO+: We will need to get far from here, Captain. The cloak will fail again. The repairs are temporary at best, it simply sustained too much damage.
CMO Lt Tailor 19-Aug-2020 22:47:04
::nods:: HRH: I understand that you're eager to get back, but we need to make sure that you're well enough to be up and about. Your crew will take care of things until you're ready to go back to them.
CO Capt Harper 19-Aug-2020 22:47:14
+CEO+ Understood. Would you say that the tractor beam can be sustained at higher warp?
HRH Ashexana 19-Aug-2020 22:49:02
:: dips her head once more, slightly humbled by all of this :: CMO: They certainly have so far, with a little help from our friends.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Aug-2020 22:49:15
+CO+: The tractor beam may be, but I doubt the RIxx will. I dont think the you fully grasp the level of damage that was done here. :: Looks behind him, then back again.:: The Rixx will be in Drydock for the better part of the next year, if it's not decommissioned wholesale.
+CO+: If we need to go faster, I would recommend using Runabouts to provide SIF cover.
CMO Lt Tailor 19-Aug-2020 22:50:54
::nods, giving her a smile:: HRH: Get some rest, I'll send word that you'll be discharged tomorrow, provided your recovery goes as expected.
CO Capt Harper 19-Aug-2020 22:51:15
+CEO+ Queen Ashexana's too fond of that ship to let her go; I am confident we will see her again. As for the runabouts, that is an excellent idea!
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Aug-2020 22:52:00
+CO+: At any rate, it will help alleviate strain from the taxed EPS grid.
HRH Ashexana 19-Aug-2020 22:52:00
CMO: Thank you. If I may have another PADD, I have some letters to write.
CO Capt Harper 19-Aug-2020 22:53:20
+CEO+ We will launch them shortly. If you wish to continue repairs, you are welcome to stay aboard the Rixx, but the transporters are available again.
CMO Lt Tailor 19-Aug-2020 22:53:42
HRH: Of course. ::goes to a cabinet and fishes out a couple of padds and hands them to Ashe::
CO Capt Harper 19-Aug-2020 22:53:44
:: glances over to Kuari when she mentions launching runabouts ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Aug-2020 22:54:13
+CO+: There is much to be done captain. I will need to stay, to oversee the repairs. Unless I am needed on Atlantis.
HRH Ashexana 19-Aug-2020 22:54:43
CMO: Thank you, again... for everything. If I can ever return the favor, should you find yourself in Free Fleets territory, I will endeavor to do so.
XO Cdr Kuari 19-Aug-2020 22:55:03
:: glances back, then sends a message to the shuttlebays to prepare ::
CO Capt Harper 19-Aug-2020 22:55:36
+CEO+ Everything is in hip hop shape over here, so feel free to stay.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-Aug-2020 22:56:04
::Chuckles.:: +CO+: I'm glad everything is musical.
CMO Lt Tailor 19-Aug-2020 22:56:21
::nods:: HRH: You're welcome, Ashe. I'll keep that in mind. ::turns to go to main sickbay again::
CO Capt Harper 19-Aug-2020 22:57:11
:: nothing about Ilaihr's reply seems odd to her, as the metaphor makes sense :: +CEO+ Indeed it is. The runabouts will launch shortly. Atlantis out.
NAV: Mr. Navarro... where are we going, anyway?
NAV Lt Navarro 19-Aug-2020 22:58:52
CO: Refuge, capitana. It was the only Free Fleets port we had on our charts. ETA 22.4 hours, present speed.
CO Capt Harper 19-Aug-2020 22:59:40
NAV: That will do, unless the Queen objects. I will pay her a visit to find out where she would like to go for repairs.
ACTION> Two runabouts launch from our aft shuttlebay and form up, reinforcing the Rixx's structural integrity fields.
