Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
A week after the Xovul attack on Refuge, repairs are underway in earnest, and Atlantis has been joined by the Challenger and the Columbia. Starfleet engineers work alongside Free Fleets crews, some having to work in EVA suits, some using heavy equipment, to return Refuge to its former state. The promenade is partially open for business, but some of the merchant traders are instead using their ships to bring supplies in to aid the repair efforts. Morale is high, despite the losses and constant reminders of them, with news of Queen Ashexana's address to the Federation Council giving the people here hope that powerful allies will assist them the next time the Xovul attack.

SCENE> The surface of Refuge, outside the domes and underground areas of the port and its supporting facilities, is an airless dwarf planet, stark and beautiful in its desolation. The surface is mostly dark, sharp regolith, but occasional brighter spots of salts are visible.

Damien> TAC2: Well, the feeling is mutual. This pylon has a degraded sensor matrix, but the integrity is sound.
Hannah Ziredac 19-May-2021 21:32:38
Venya: Was wondering if there was anything I could do to help right now. Kinda got no real expertise in repair work, but I’m a pair of hands, I guess.

Damien: Then replace it.
Venya Kashar 19-May-2021 21:33:51
:: nods, having received that wallop personally :: Yes, they do. But, we are well on our way to being operational again. As for what you could do... hmm. I'm not much good at repairs, either, it would seem. That job I mentioned still needs to be done, but now may not be the time.

:: straightens her tunic and exits to the bridge ::
Hannah Ziredac 19-May-2021 21:34:41
Venya: Oh, I’m down for it, believe me—just as soon as my ship is spaceworthy again. Took all week just to get her power systems up to snuff.

:: idles back into sickbay with her test results, sitting back down to talk to her patient ::
Venya Kashar 19-May-2021 21:35:53
I certainly understand that feeling, Hannah. :: looks around her facility ::
TAC 2Lt Ammora 19-May-2021 21:36:11
Damien> TAC2: I would, except the fuses and surrounding circuitry are compromised. If I remove it, it jeopardizes the integrity of the grid and we don't have that equipment.
SCI Lt Herschel 19-May-2021 21:36:16
:: taps console to the sing-songy pattern of her mental thoughts I do not like this one little bit. This is quite something else. I am not used to this at all. I need to stop shaking like a chihuahua. ::

Hannah Ziredac 19-May-2021 21:37:43

Venya Kashar 19-May-2021 21:38:34
Oh, not at all, dear, and thank you. Mr. Oolot defended me to his last breath, and yes, became a dear friend. I had thought of putting up a statue to him, perhaps over there... :: gestures ::
TAC 2Lt Ammora 19-May-2021 21:38:35
Damien: Let me look. :: moves to the pylon ::
Damien> TAC2: By all means, tell me what I already know.

MED Lt Acacia 19-May-2021 21:39:56
:: nods, explaining the process :: Patient: You’ll go through a number of treatments in the coming month. Refuge facilities should be able to accommodate the rest.
Venya Kashar 19-May-2021 21:40:17
Hm, you know, I could use a bit of help putting my office back together, if you would care to join me?
ENG LtJG D'bryn 19-May-2021 21:40:28

:: exits the TL and enters sickbay, still carrying the PADD, and looks around to assess the state of the place ::

That sounds like something I can do.
TAC 2Lt Ammora 19-May-2021 21:41:19

CSO Cdr Wright 19-May-2021 21:41:20

TAC 2Lt Ammora 19-May-2021 21:42:15

TAC 2Lt Ammora 19-May-2021 21:44:44

:: holds up a hand :: Damien: Give me a second, would you?
Venya Kashar 19-May-2021 21:46:13
:: catches Hannah's look :: Isn't he beautiful, dear? He was Mr. Oolot's second, and has received a promotion.
CO Capt Harper 19-May-2021 21:47:28
MED: That is a relief, I am sure. That personal touch has been a staple of this sickbay and its staff for a long time, and I even received comments on it during the rush, even if you may think you neglected it.

+Atlantis+ I am not going to lie and say that we will all be alright. Even those who are uninjured suffer the trauma of war.

Hannah Ziredac 19-May-2021 22:58:20
Just to make conversation, it’s okay if you don’t wanna talk business, but just curious: What’s the job you had in mind?
SCI Lt Herschel 19-May-2021 22:58:22
:: I did not sign up for this ::
TAC 2Lt Ammora 19-May-2021 22:58:38
+Damien+ I'm asking you to do your job.
CO Capt Harper 19-May-2021 22:58:48
+Atlantis+ But I promise you all, my crew, and this family that we will fight our hardest to defend the values that our uniform represents, each other, and this ship that we call home. I will personally do my best to get you home.

:: knows this is the right thing to do and is happy to be protecting their allies, but is fearful of another war with a foe as fearsome as the Xovul ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 19-May-2021 22:59:43
::Just quietly sighs.::
CO Capt Harper 19-May-2021 22:59:57
+Atlantis+ If it comes to war, it will be a hard-fought one. But I would not want to go into it aboard any other ship, or with any other crew. Harper out.

:: glances up, still internally panic screaming ::
CO Capt Harper 19-May-2021 23:02:27
CSO: No need for a channel, just orders for the captains. My speech was for us, and their captains will make similar ones for them.
Hannah Ziredac 19-May-2021 23:02:43
Yeah, speaking of my brother, he gave me a bloody nose once when we were kids, and he forced me to clean it up so our parents wouldn’t find out. I got pretty good at it.
CSO Cdr Wright 19-May-2021 23:02:54
CO: Aye, Captain.
CO Capt Harper 19-May-2021 23:02:56
