Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
Having survived the surprise Romulan attack that interrupted our planetary cataloging mission, we endeavor to resume it the following morning while repairs are still underway. Still in orbit around the watery planet with only one small volcanic island in a sea of prokaryotic life, we press onward in our survey, with an away team potentially on the agenda here before we can move on to the rest of the planets in this contact binary system; an ice-covered terrestrial world and a gas giant have yet to be visited.

:: chuckles, taking out her scanner wand and running a scan over Kate’s head :: CO: That’s good. Can you follow my finger? :: she waves a finger back and forth ::

RC: Thanks. :: quirky, uncomfortable smile ::

TAC 2Lt Ammora 03-Mar-2021 21:24:17
It's just bad press. One small wrong, one stupid mistake... you can get past this.

:: keeps her voice low, giving him a stern warning :: TAC2: One step out of line, and you'll find yourself helping the janitorial staff until the next Earth shore-leave. Am I clear here?

TAC 2Lt Ammora 03-Mar-2021 21:28:11
:: eyes blink a few dozen time, taking in what she said :: Grey: Yes, sir, of course, sir.

:: scritches Anna some more, trying to keep the cat hair from getting on the new uniform ::

TAC2: In case you're unsure, it's the empty console to the left of the captain's chair. :: calls, not looking up from her own console ::
TAC 2Lt Ammora 03-Mar-2021 21:30:48
:: to himself :: You know the specs, science there, engineering where Zoe is, second from the right...

:: finishes up and checks her uniform in a wall mirror, straightening up her hair before heading out of sickbay ::

:: to himself :: You really suck at this.

:: moves to the console Grey pointed out, looks at the display, and under his breath :: Wow. Okay.
:: meets eyes with Zoe, winks and slightly shakes his head in the negative ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Mar-2021 21:32:28

:: bolts to attention when Harper walks on the bridge ::

MED Lt Acacia 03-Mar-2021 21:35:35
:: arrives on the bridge shortly after the Captain, so only a smidge late. She looks around and smiles at everyone, even Ammora ::
TAC 2Lt Ammora 03-Mar-2021 21:35:55
:: unsure if he can relax, but does so and goes back to his console ::
CTO Cpt Grey 03-Mar-2021 21:35:56
CO: Good morning, Captain! :: drops her salute neatly and runs the general weapons and shield scans ::
ENG Ens D'bryn 03-Mar-2021 21:36:06

:: bows his head to Emily before turning back to the helm ::
MED Lt Acacia 03-Mar-2021 21:36:23

:: notes that Lt. Ammora, main character of the disciplinary report she was given, is now here ::
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Mar-2021 21:38:33
:: takes her seat only after Harper does :: CO: Atlantis is in good shape, only minor repairs left. We're ready to resume our exploration. How are you feeling?
CO Capt Harper 03-Mar-2021 21:39:51
:: sitting on the edge of the captain's chair, having yet to settle in :: XO: That is good news! Though the bridge does seem to still smell a little like smoke. Do you smell that? Anyway, I feel great, thanks to our excellent medical staff!
TAC 2Lt Ammora 03-Mar-2021 21:40:05
:: sniffs on impulse ::
MED Lt Acacia 03-Mar-2021 21:40:30
:: sniffs the air curiously, then gives a smile and a wave as she’s passively acknowledged ::
CSO Cdr Wright 03-Mar-2021 21:40:33
:: sniffs at the air, wondering if she should get the Operations team back in here to clean again ::
NAV Lt Navarro 03-Mar-2021 21:40:49
:: presses the air freshener button, dispensing some new starship smell ::

:: also sniffs ::
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Mar-2021 21:42:23
:: sniffs the bridge :: CO: I suppose I do. A lot happened, although it's greatly dissipated. :: looks over at Acacia, knowing she would have given Harper a fit-for-duty pass that she could probably find in the updated reports on her console ::
CSO Cdr Wright 03-Mar-2021 21:43:05
CO: Shall I summon an Operations team to clean immediately, or schedule it for the next shift change?
CO Capt Harper 03-Mar-2021 21:43:33
CSO: It is fine now; schedule it for later.
MED Lt Acacia 03-Mar-2021 21:43:58
:: has been giving a number of fit-for-duty passes, fortunately. She taps at her console, pulling up her next report to work on it ::
CSO Cdr Wright 03-Mar-2021 21:44:13
:: nods and turns back to her console, putting in a Ops request for Bridge cleaning at the next shift change ::
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Mar-2021 21:44:53
CO/CSO: When the bridge sparks, it tends to leave a smell for a while. It will pass with normal air circulation.
CO Capt Harper 03-Mar-2021 21:45:15
XO: Anyway, before we were so rudely interrupted, I believe we were talking about getting down to that lonely island?
CTO Cpt Grey 03-Mar-2021 21:45:28
:: sighs and steps closer to the captain, dropping her tone :: CO: When you have a minute, ma'am... can I talk to you? Privately?
CO Capt Harper 03-Mar-2021 21:45:57
:: nods to Grey :: CTO: Of course, captain.
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Mar-2021 21:46:21
:: nods and pulls up the data scans from behind several report windows on her console while Grey speaks briefly with Harper ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Mar-2021 21:47:04
:: gestures toward the ready room :: XO: Pull that team together in the meantime.

:: works on her report idly, listening to the bridge ::
CSO Cdr Wright 03-Mar-2021 21:47:34
:: having heard Kate's comment, takes a look at the status of the lone island below ::
CTO Cpt Grey 03-Mar-2021 21:47:35
:: glances at Ammora once more before following the captain into the ready room ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Mar-2021 21:48:18
:: enters the ready room and doesn't go behind her desk, not wanting that barrier between her and Grey, and waits for the doors to close before speaking :: CTO: What is it, Ryleigh?
TAC 2Lt Ammora 03-Mar-2021 21:48:42
:: waits for Grey to go into the ready room with the CO and moves to the primary tactical station ::
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Mar-2021 21:49:04
:: watches Harper and Grey leave the bridge, turning her attention to Wright :: CSO: Alexis, do you have anyone on your teams that specialize in marine studies? I would think most that should go down would be from your department, and you of course if you wish.
TAC 2Lt Ammora 03-Mar-2021 21:49:30
:: stares at the console ::
ENG Ens D'bryn 03-Mar-2021 21:49:40
:: can’t help but wonder what Grey and the Captain are meeting about, given the recent turbulence ::
TAC 2Lt Ammora 03-Mar-2021 21:49:55
:: taps a couple of buttons, all systems nominal and ready to go ::
ENG Ens D'bryn 03-Mar-2021 21:50:06
:: thinks :: None of your business, Zoë.
TAC 2Lt Ammora 03-Mar-2021 21:50:16
:: ignores a couple of things he doesn't recognize ::
CSO Cdr Wright 03-Mar-2021 21:50:59
XO: Oh, certainly. And since the volcano is actively erupting, I'm definitely personally interested in it from a geological standpoint. But I have two marine specialists and another geologist who I'm sure would love to go.
CTO Cpt Grey 03-Mar-2021 21:51:12
CO: I know Lt. Ammora shouldn't have been reassigned to the bridge, but that was the only station that I could keep a firm eye on him, despite his current behavior... I warned him very clearly before shift started that if he put one toe out of line, he'd be helping the janitorial staff until we get back to Earth.
TAC 2Lt Ammora 03-Mar-2021 21:51:23
:: under his breath :: Torpedoes, shields, phasers...
CO Capt Harper 03-Mar-2021 21:51:51
:: nods along as Grey speaks :: CTO: I read your report. You handled that well.
ENG Ens D'bryn 03-Mar-2021 21:52:24
:: goes back to her state of woolgathering about new worlds, from before the Romulans ruined the party ::
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Mar-2021 21:52:55
CSO: Perfect. Make sure they prepare. Unless there are any issues, we should be ready to visit within the hour.
ENG Ens D'bryn 03-Mar-2021 21:53:25
:: tries to think of an excuse to advocate for, oh, say, an Engineer’s presence on the away team but can’t think of one, and can’t muster the courage to say something anyway ::
CSO Cdr Wright 03-Mar-2021 21:53:35
XO: Aye, Commander. :: immediately calls down to the scientists in question, telling them to prep ::
MED Lt Acacia 03-Mar-2021 21:54:38
:: sits up a bit :: XO: Can I go?
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 03-Mar-2021 21:55:13
::Steps off of the TL onto the bridge, looking around for a moment under his hood, before sliding up to his station.::
CSO Cdr Wright 03-Mar-2021 21:55:14
Self: Not many chances to visit an actively erupting volcano on a different world! :: hums happily ::
ENG Ens D'bryn 03-Mar-2021 21:55:21

XO Cdr Kuari 03-Mar-2021 21:55:35
:: turns her head towards Acacia and opens her mouth to speak, but grins :: MED: I was just going to ask. I'm sure there are scans and samples you would like to collect as well.
ENG Ens D'bryn 03-Mar-2021 21:55:50
:: sees the CEO’s here, stands up and lets him have the station ::

:: sees the interaction between the CEO and Zoe ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 03-Mar-2021 21:56:47
::Raises his hand and shakes his head.:: ENG: That's quite alright, my dear girl. ::Sits in the free seat next to her, and begins typing at his station.::
CSO Cdr Wright 03-Mar-2021 21:56:48
XO: Be advised, anyone visiting should be equipped with thick-soled boots.
ENG Ens D'bryn 03-Mar-2021 21:57:16
:: wonders how in the world one goes about asking her superior officer not to call her ‘My dear girl.’ ::
CSO Cdr Wright 03-Mar-2021 21:57:27
XO: The terrain is rugged and may be somewhat hot if you step in the wrong places.
CTO Cpt Grey 03-Mar-2021 21:57:51
:: nods, giving a slight smile :: CO: Thank you. I thought... you may want to know before anything happens. I was very clear about expressing that this reassignment was not a promotion, but more as a punishment during our talk yesterday. He has one final chance here, then he's finding himself helping the janitorial staff.
CSO Cdr Wright 03-Mar-2021 21:58:34
XO: Like.. the soles of your shoes might melt. That kind of hot.
MED Lt Acacia 03-Mar-2021 21:58:53
:: nods, making a note to change her shoes ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Mar-2021 21:59:12
CTO: I hope he gets the message. Personnel troubles like that can be the most difficult part of leading a department, and I am impressed that you took care of it without needing to escalate.
CTO: In fact, given your performance in the recent conflicts, along with how you handled that disciplinary matter, I am removing the "Acting" from your title. Congratulations, Chief! :: offers a smile and a handshake ::
CSO Cdr Wright 03-Mar-2021 21:59:41
XO: Permission to leave the bridge to prep for the away mission?
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Mar-2021 21:59:53
:: frowns :: CSO: Oh, I didn't think of that. Yes, please do.

CSO Cdr Wright 03-Mar-2021 22:52:58

CEO LCdr Ilaihr 03-Mar-2021 22:53:37
NAV: I feel the past weighing on me heavily recently. And I greatly miss her.

MED Lt Acacia 03-Mar-2021 22:54:56
:: closes her scanner and visually checks out the rocks around the lava flow ::
CSO Cdr Wright 03-Mar-2021 22:54:58
ENG: Excellent. Would you mind helping us set it up? I'd like one tripod right here, Olsen will take one up the slope a bit, and I'll take one across the lava flow.
XO Cdr Kuari 03-Mar-2021 22:55:07
:: stands nearby, watching Wright, Acacia and D'bryn ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Mar-2021 22:55:26
:: eventually approaches the lava flow, making a bit of idle conversation with Grey as they walk ::
ENG Ens D'bryn 03-Mar-2021 22:55:32
CSO: Absolutely, ma’am.
TAC 2Lt Ammora 03-Mar-2021 22:55:52

CEO LCdr Ilaihr 03-Mar-2021 22:56:25
::Shakes his head.:: NAV: No. I feel it would be too unhealthy; to step into a facsimile is a dangerous temptation into madness.
TAC 2Lt Ammora 03-Mar-2021 22:56:30
:: stays close to Olsen, but not too close as directed ::
CO Capt Harper 03-Mar-2021 22:56:34

TAC 2Lt Ammora 03-Mar-2021 22:56:45
Olsen: What about this mission intrigues you the most?
CSO Cdr Wright 03-Mar-2021 22:56:58

CO Capt Harper 03-Mar-2021 22:58:18
:: approaches the lava flow where it enters the sea, then her eyes go wide and she takes in a sharp breath when she sees Lexy jump it ::
CSO Cdr Wright 03-Mar-2021 22:58:26
Olsen> :: looks at Ammora with surprise at being spoken to :: TAC: Oh. Well. Uh. I'm a geologist. You know? So getting a chance to study an eruptive feature? On another world? Is pretty cool? :: is nervous ::
ENG Ens D'bryn 03-Mar-2021 22:58:28
:: makes sure the tripod is functioning, but leaves the actual scientibulationcies to the sciencers ::
CSO Cdr Wright 03-Mar-2021 22:59:22
:: lands on the other side of the thin flow and continues another 20 meters or so along the shoreline before stopping to set up her tripod, blissfully unaware of people staring at her ::
TAC 2Lt Ammora 03-Mar-2021 22:59:23
Olsen: I didn't mean to interrupt. It's just... uh... my first away mission... I don't know whether to wonder in the excitement or think we're all going to die.
NAV Lt Navarro 03-Mar-2021 22:59:36

CSO Cdr Wright 03-Mar-2021 23:00:39
Olsen> TAC: Oh! The Commander said that it's pretty safe here. As long as you don't stand in the lava. That's not safe. But there's no... you know? Shooty shooty?
