Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
Atlantis rescued a stranded Xovul dreadnought from the murky depths of an ice giant, tractoring it to orbit through dangerous flying conditions; winds of hundreds of kilometers an hour buffeted the ship, straining the inertial dampeners and tossing the crew about as we ascended through an ice storm. Surprised that we were their saviors, the Xovul reluctantly accepted our aid, allowing transport of their casualties to sickbay and transmitting technical data to assist our engineers in adapting our replicator reserves to fuel their replicators. After another hour or so, more Xovul patients have arrived in various conditions, and engineering's work on the replicator problem has continued with promise.

ENG Ens D'bryn 27-Jan-2021 21:30:23

Xovul Doc> :: takes the PADD in her clawed hand and blinks at it a few times, clearing away the fog ::
CSO Cdr Wright 27-Jan-2021 21:30:53
SCI Hawkins> ENG: So the obvious solutions are that we either need to modify the receptors on their replicator equipment, which seemed rather far-fetched...
MED Lt Acacia 27-Jan-2021 21:31:22
:: pulls up a chair to sit with the Doctor so they can go over it together ::
CSO Cdr Wright 27-Jan-2021 21:32:29
SCI Ayyad> ENG: Or we needed to figure out how to modify the molecular structure of our replicator fuel. Which is... weird, to say the least, but possible if we can overlay a thin layer of crystalline lattice structure, oh, maybe two microns thick.

SCI: I’m gonna guess you went with the latter?
CSO Cdr Wright 27-Jan-2021 21:34:19

CO Capt Harper 27-Jan-2021 21:36:55
Xovul Doc> MED: Yes, that translates. :: eagerly starts tapping, adjusting ratios of various proteins, vitamins, and sugars ::
CSO Cdr Wright 27-Jan-2021 21:37:06
SCI Ayyad> ENG: It'll take some reconfiguring of our hardware to generate the crystal lattice.
ENG Ens D'bryn 27-Jan-2021 21:37:15
SCI: I actually assumed that was the direction you were going to go; I didn’t think the Xovul would be keen on changing their hardware anyway.
SCI: Absolutely. Here, take a look at this. :: holds up transistor circuit :: Since I assumed we’d be changing the fuel itself, I spent the last hour building this.
MED Lt Acacia 27-Jan-2021 21:38:27
:: gives a small sigh of relief, happy to have some input on how they were doing :: Xovul Doc: Thank you, Doctor.
ENG Ens D'bryn 27-Jan-2021 21:38:58

CSO Cdr Wright 27-Jan-2021 22:38:22
SCI Hawkins> +ENG+ Hawkins to D'bryn.
ENG Ens D'bryn 27-Jan-2021 22:38:35
Byrne> No sweat. You’re not running a ship if you’re not spinning plates.
CO Capt Harper 27-Jan-2021 22:38:50
:: exits sickbay, finding herself relieved to be out of the room full of Xovul, and hates that she feels that way ::
ENG Ens D'bryn 27-Jan-2021 22:39:18
Byrne: For sure. +SCI+ D’bryn here. Good news?
CSO Cdr Wright 27-Jan-2021 22:39:39
SCI Hawkins> +ENG+ Very. We are in business.
XO Cdr Kuari 27-Jan-2021 22:40:17
:: doesn't like the implications, and steps off her seat, sitting on the floor in front of center seat :: +Vash+ I assume the problem comes with their not understanding that we are assisting your ship. Certainly you can inform them of our intentions?
ENG Ens D'bryn 27-Jan-2021 22:40:36
SCI: How’s it look in that transistor circuit? I rigged up the display to give an emulated readout of its efficiency.
Xovul Vash 27-Jan-2021 22:41:39
+XO+ That is possible... but I think it would be far less risky if you were not here when they arrive.
MED Lt Acacia 27-Jan-2021 22:41:52
:: finds herself wondering if the report she’s writing will be remembered. Certainly it is an unusual one ::
Xovul Vash 27-Jan-2021 22:42:31
+XO+ You see, it is also possible that informing them of your assistance will result in a fundamental philosophical disagreement.
NAV Lt Navarro 27-Jan-2021 22:43:23
:: looks up at the Vash, then starts computing slipstream solutions to various places in advance of the order ::
XO Cdr Kuari 27-Jan-2021 22:43:24
:: frowns further, then looks to the floor for a moment in consideration before regarding the image of the Xovul on the screen :: +Vash+ Two hours, you say? I appreciate the heads up. I will discuss this with my captain.
CSO Cdr Wright 27-Jan-2021 22:43:30
:: really doesn't like the sound of that ::
SCI Ayyad> :: tests it with the transistor circuit and raises her voice to be heard over Hawkins' communicator :: +ENG+ Looks like we're at 64% efficiency, which is not great but a lot better than zero.
CO Capt Harper 27-Jan-2021 22:46:05
:: enters the turbolift :: Bridge.
Xovul Vash 27-Jan-2021 22:46:43
+XO+ Thank you. We await your response.
:: cuts the comm ::
CSO Cdr Wright 27-Jan-2021 22:47:05
XO: The channel is closed, Commander.
XO Cdr Kuari 27-Jan-2021 22:47:18
:: nods, then ponders another moment at the floor, then meets Wright's eyes, checking her expression ::
ENG Ens D'bryn 27-Jan-2021 22:47:44
+SCI+ Yeah, I mean... That could get them by until they get repairs of their own. The circuit I replicated is also just a close approximation of that alloy. The real thing might have better efficiency.
+SCI+ What do you think? Should we get it over to the Xovul and see how it works, or do you think we can get it better?
CO Capt Harper 27-Jan-2021 22:48:57
:: after a quiet turbolift ride spent questioning her prejudices, she walks onto the bridge, crossing toward her chair :: XO: Report?
CSO Cdr Wright 27-Jan-2021 22:49:47
SCI Hawkins> +ENG+ Why not do both? We can always try this and see how it goes and refine if necessary.
XO Cdr Kuari 27-Jan-2021 22:50:26
:: looks up, seeing just the person she wanted to see, and stands :: CO: Another Xovul ship will be in range in two hours. Vash...suggests we not be here when it does, as it could cause...problems.
CO Capt Harper 27-Jan-2021 22:51:05
:: folds her arms over her chest :: XO: Yes, I can see that being a problem.
XO: How is the replicator fuel situation?
ENG Ens D'bryn 27-Jan-2021 22:51:30
+SCI+ You make an excellent point. I’ll talk to Commander Ilaihr and see about getting this version of the fuel over to them.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 27-Jan-2021 22:51:37
Aloud: We have likely aided them for naught.
ENG Ens D'bryn 27-Jan-2021 22:51:45
+SCI+ I’ll keep you updated. D’bryn out.
+CEO+ D’bryn to Commander Ilaihr.
CSO Cdr Wright 27-Jan-2021 22:52:32

CTO Cpt Grey 27-Jan-2021 22:52:41
:: puts a senior Marine on responsible watch before heading up to the bridge, dismissing the other who was at her station before tapping in to check on things. The Captain looked strangely... serious, drawing her attention :: CO: What happened?
XO Cdr Kuari 27-Jan-2021 22:53:37
:: trots back to her seat :: CO: Last update we had, D'bryn was getting the replicators modified to produce their fuel. It sounded promising.
CO Capt Harper 27-Jan-2021 22:53:40
CTO: Another Xovul ship is on its way. I think it would be best if we were not here when they arrive, but be ready for a fight, just in case.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 27-Jan-2021 22:53:50
+ENG+: Ilaihr here...
XO Cdr Kuari 27-Jan-2021 22:55:22
:: nods at Grey's entrance, settling into her seat, checking the time on her console and preparing to coordinate being ready to leave in two hours ::
CO Capt Harper 27-Jan-2021 22:55:25
:: nods, and hears Ilaihr answer his comm, assuming that will be an update ::
ENG Ens D'bryn 27-Jan-2021 22:55:43
+CEO+ The Science team and I successfully got a replicator fuel that gets 64% efficiency, sir. This could tide the Xovul over until they can get their own repairs, and it’s even possible that my approximation of testing equipment could be underreporting that efficiency. As it is, we feel this is ready to present to the Xovul for testing.
CO Capt Harper 27-Jan-2021 22:55:45
:: then taps her commbadge, resting her hands on her hips afterwards :: +Sickbay+ Harper to sickbay.
CTO Cpt Grey 27-Jan-2021 22:55:51
:: expression darkens at the report, fingers tapping the edge of her console :: CO: Dr. Acacia said that most of the patients have to stay overnight. I doubt they can be moved safely at this current state in time!
MED Lt Acacia 27-Jan-2021 22:56:51
:: looks up, checks that no one senior is going to answer, then shrugs :: +CO+ Sickbay here.
CO Capt Harper 27-Jan-2021 22:56:54
CTO: We may have no choice. Fortunately, their doctor is now awake.
+MED+ Another Xovul ship is on its way. To avoid a potential conflict, we are not going to be here when they arrive. Unfortunately, our guests will have to depart early.
MED Lt Acacia 27-Jan-2021 22:58:21
:: hesitates, then sighs :: +CO+ What is the state of their medical facilities?
CTO Cpt Grey 27-Jan-2021 22:58:21
:: sighs, running a finger through a loose strand of hair that had fallen out of her bun :: CO: I'll get the systems ready to defend.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 27-Jan-2021 22:58:45
+ENG+: Very well, go ahead with the transfer and I will let the Captain know.
CO Capt Harper 27-Jan-2021 22:59:17
+MED+ That is a very good question; I will find out when we speak to them. In the meantime, prepare your patients for transport and brief their doctor.
MED Lt Acacia 27-Jan-2021 22:59:45
:: grits her teeth :: +CO+ Acknowledged.
:: goes to talk to the Xovul Doctor first ::
CO Capt Harper 27-Jan-2021 23:00:09
+MED+ Thank you, doctor. Harper out.
ENG Ens D'bryn 27-Jan-2021 23:00:50
+CEO+ Thanks, Commander. We’ll transport it to their Engineering department right away.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 27-Jan-2021 23:00:53
CO: The Xovul fuel is ready. ::Is as blunt as a Tellarite.::
