Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
The mornings following Atlantis crew functions have never been on the strictest of schedules, and with shore leave added, this one is no exception, with some of the crew even electing to spend the night after our holiday party camping on the planet in various sites around the hot spring. Regardless, shore leave is ending this morning and we must continue our mission to catalog the rest of the planets in this small system before moving on, so be back at your stations soon for departure.

CSO Cdr Wright 06-Jan-2021 21:24:02

CSO Cdr Wright 06-Jan-2021 21:26:09

MED Lt Acacia 06-Jan-2021 22:26:48

CTO Cpt Grey 06-Jan-2021 22:26:56
:: notices, but definitely chooses not to say anything because it wasn't her place. She's come in late before, don't bring attention to Wright... ::
CSO Cdr Wright 06-Jan-2021 22:28:58
:: internally sighs with relief after a few moments; she hates being the center of attention and it appears to not have happened this time. ::
CO Capt Harper 06-Jan-2021 22:29:15
ACTION> A few minutes later, Atlantis pops out of warp and a barren, cratered, sun-blasted world appears on the main viewer.
CSO Cdr Wright 06-Jan-2021 22:29:39
:: initiates preliminary scans ::
CTO Cpt Grey 06-Jan-2021 22:29:42

CO Capt Harper 06-Jan-2021 22:29:54
NAV: Standard scanning orbit, Mr. Navarro.
MED Lt Acacia 06-Jan-2021 22:30:09
:: pauses her work to look up, interested ::
NAV Lt Navarro 06-Jan-2021 22:30:27
CO: Sí. :: settles the ship into the routine orbit for Wright to do science ::
CO Capt Harper 06-Jan-2021 22:30:49
All: The last one was much more fun, yes? :: looks around the bridge ::
XO Cdr Kuari 06-Jan-2021 22:31:15
:: has by now warmed up to normal temperature, nothing to indicate where the crew had just been other than lingering scents, and studies the main viewscreen, back to business ::
CO Capt Harper 06-Jan-2021 22:31:40
:: takes note of Ilaihr's robes instead of uniform, but honestly, that is the least strange thing to come from the old Aenar ::
MED Lt Acacia 06-Jan-2021 22:32:07
:: nods lightly, watching the viewer :: CO: I don’t think I want to camp here.
CO Capt Harper 06-Jan-2021 22:32:59
MED: No, I think even the Gencodian world would be preferable!
MED Lt Acacia 06-Jan-2021 22:33:39
:: gives an awkward laugh, not sure if she’s ready to joke about that yet ::
CMO Lt Tailor 06-Jan-2021 22:33:49
::looks up to the viewscreen, pulling herself out of her musings; she's been recreating a favorite place of hers in the holodeck, a stained glass solarium on her father's Montana farm that her mother designed when Velina was a small child::
CSO Cdr Wright 06-Jan-2021 22:33:58
CO: There are some mineral deposits of reasonable size down there, but otherwise my initial scans aren't picking up anything of note.
CO Capt Harper 06-Jan-2021 22:34:30
CSO: Catalog the minerals and move on then?
CSO Cdr Wright 06-Jan-2021 22:35:03
CO: Aye. :: sets to work on some quick cataloging ::
CO Capt Harper 06-Jan-2021 22:36:06
NAV: Set a course out to the ice giant, lieutenant.
NAV Lt Navarro 06-Jan-2021 22:36:42
:: has it ready to go :: CO: Course laid in, ma'am.
CO Capt Harper 06-Jan-2021 22:37:06
:: looks to Lexy to see if she is ready ::
CSO Cdr Wright 06-Jan-2021 22:37:25
:: finishes the last bit and then turns to nod ::
CO Capt Harper 06-Jan-2021 22:37:58
:: looks back to Navarro and nods before taking her seat :: NAV: Hit it.
NAV Lt Navarro 06-Jan-2021 22:38:06
:: engages the warp drive once more ::
CO Capt Harper 06-Jan-2021 22:38:23
ACTION> Atlantis leaves the sun-blasted cratered world behind in a streak of lights.
XO Cdr Kuari 06-Jan-2021 22:38:41
:: listens to the information gathering conversation, idly surveying basic information on her console, then switching to check on late arrivals to duty ::
CO Capt Harper 06-Jan-2021 22:39:44
ACTION> Several minutes later, we exit warp at the edge of this system, approaching an azure ice giant, with traces of higher wispy white clouds accenting the blue depths.
MED Lt Acacia 06-Jan-2021 22:40:25
:: once again looks up from her work to observe ::
CSO Cdr Wright 06-Jan-2021 22:40:44
:: initiates routine scans ::
CO Capt Harper 06-Jan-2021 22:41:00
ACTION> Several large moons can be seen glinting on the main viewer, as well as a faint ring system.
NAV Lt Navarro 06-Jan-2021 22:41:29
:: pilots the ship into the standard science orbit ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 06-Jan-2021 22:41:38
::Monitors the ship's systems, scrolling through the various sections of engineering; sending orders and setting schedules, whilst quietly listening to the goings-on of the bridge.::
CO Capt Harper 06-Jan-2021 22:43:37
All: This one is at least nicer to look at. :: watches the pretty blue cloud deck of the giant drift below on the main viewer ::
CSO Cdr Wright 06-Jan-2021 22:44:34
CO: The planet has a Hydrogen/Helium atmosphere. The moons are icy, but some of them have sub-surface oceans.
MED Lt Acacia 06-Jan-2021 22:44:36
:: nods in agreement, glancing at Wright as she wonders if anything interesting is beneath the ice ::
XO Cdr Kuari 06-Jan-2021 22:45:17
:: watches the view of natural space beauty, with Wright's commentary ::
CMO Lt Tailor 06-Jan-2021 22:45:56
::glances at the new planet with a minor amount of interest, piquing a bit when Wright mentions subsurface oceans::
CO Capt Harper 06-Jan-2021 22:46:10
CSO: Oh, those are always interesting!
CSO Cdr Wright 06-Jan-2021 22:47:18
CO: Wait. Something interesting just came into range... something.. metallic in the atmosphere.
CO Capt Harper 06-Jan-2021 22:47:48
CSO: Metallic? In an ice giant? :: turns to Grey :: Is it a ship?
XO Cdr Kuari 06-Jan-2021 22:48:58
:: perks up her ears and looks Wright's way, as if she can somehow ascertain the meaning of her words simply by looking at her ::
MED Lt Acacia 06-Jan-2021 22:49:19
:: raises an eyebrow, watching the planet on the viewer and listening intently ::
NAV Lt Navarro 06-Jan-2021 22:49:40
:: wonders who the hell would be down there, if it is ::
CTO Cpt Grey 06-Jan-2021 22:49:49
:: hearing that caught her attention, and she snapped her head to stare at Wright :: CSO: Metallic? :: immediately tabs the scanners, checking them carefully, peering at the screen in a visible attempt to make out the object :: CO: It's too far for our scanners to make out clearly enough for me to make it out... if we wanna see what it is, we have to get closer. I'll try and see if I can boost the scanners somehow, but we have to move closer if we want to get a good scan. :: is already tapping away on the scanners, trying to boost their power in any way she could from her station ::
CMO Lt Tailor 06-Jan-2021 22:50:06
CSO: Have you scanned for lifesigns?
CO Capt Harper 06-Jan-2021 22:51:38
:: stands, considering :: NAV: Zorro, take us down to just above the atmosphere and keep us in place there with the engines.
CSO Cdr Wright 06-Jan-2021 22:51:38
:: shakes her head at the doctor :: CMO: Too far away.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 06-Jan-2021 22:51:38
::Diverts extra power to the sensor and deflector arrays.::
CTO Cpt Grey 06-Jan-2021 22:52:57
:: mutters in frustation at the less-than-cooperating scanners, running the systems again, keeping an eye out on the lifesigns and weapon scans she was running ::
NAV Lt Navarro 06-Jan-2021 22:53:10
CO: Sí, capitana, powered synchronous sub-orbital flight, coming right up.
:: brings Atlantis down toward the planet, but keeping out of the atmosphere ::
CMO Lt Tailor 06-Jan-2021 22:54:18
::runs the general lifesign scan as the ship gets closer to the planet::
CTO Cpt Grey 06-Jan-2021 22:54:27
:: lets out a breath of relief at finally getting the scanners focused on the metallic object, and tabs in for a closer-zoom scan, peering at her screen as the results return... and she soon lets out a flood of curses as the scans clear up :: CO: It's a ship. Of fairly decent size, still waiting for weapons' scans to come back, but... whatever a ship is doing out here is definitely not good.

CO: Yes ma'am. :: Angles the ship into the atmosphere, shedding orbital velocity against their shields ::
CO Capt Harper 06-Jan-2021 22:59:06
ACTION> The shields light up orange with fire as we enter the atmosphere, and as they die down, the sensors finally identify the mystery ship.
