Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
All of the preparations are complete. The inspiring speeches have been delivered. After weeks of tense waiting, the enemy approaches; twenty-two Xovul dreadnoughts are inbound to Refuge, with a larger allied fleet strategically positioned to intercept and defend. Their imminent arrival has the ship at red alert, the Sharks ready in the assault bay, and the whole fleet united in the defense of either an adopted home or an ally.

CSO: Fleetwide comm - be aware, active mines.
CMO LCdr Acacia 15-Sep-2021 21:23:41
:: takes the scanner from the nurse :: CEO: You’re in Sickbay, and you have been for a while. It’s stardate 12109.15.

:: sees the fleet hold their positions just as they practiced ::
TAC 1Lt Ammora 15-Sep-2021 21:26:11

CMO LCdr Acacia 15-Sep-2021 21:26:21
:: takes D’bryn’s hand and gives it a squeeze :: CEO: It’s me. And I’m real. What have you been seeing?
XO Cdr Kuari 15-Sep-2021 21:26:26
:: watches the Xovul come into short range, eyes wide and taking it in :: Bridge: Here they come.
:: nods at TAC, taking in the confirmation ::

:: her busy mind discards the superfluous information from TAC ::
CTO Cpt Grey 15-Sep-2021 21:27:27

CMO LCdr Acacia 15-Sep-2021 21:28:33
:: hugs D’bryn and rubs her back, rocking gently :: CEO: Shh... it’s okay. We’re here now.
CO Capt Harper 15-Sep-2021 21:28:42
ACTION> The lead Xovul ships strike the mines, causing significant damage. The other ships slow and begin minesweeping, slowing down their approach.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 15-Sep-2021 21:29:18
CMO: I can't remember... I can't remember what day it was when I went out. How long have I been...?
TAC 1Lt Ammora 15-Sep-2021 21:29:18

:: nods as she sees the Xovul slow, as expected ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 15-Sep-2021 21:30:23
:: looks D’bryn in the eyes, expression serious :: CEO: Three weeks, four days, ten hours. You’ll be feeling weak and disoriented, among other symptoms.
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 15-Sep-2021 21:30:48
:: also flying her own pre-determined combat patrol, but is starting to get antsy for a fight ::
CEO LtJG D’bryn 15-Sep-2021 21:31:08
:: simply cannot weigh the lifetimes she just experienced against three weeks :: CMO: Three...weeks?
CO Capt Harper 15-Sep-2021 21:31:52
ACTION> The remainder of the mines activate thrusters and charge their assigned targets, turning from mines into torpedos!
CEO LtJG D’bryn 15-Sep-2021 21:31:56
CMO: What's been happening? What's going on out there? I have so many timelines clashing with each other in my head, I can barely remember what the real one is.
CMO LCdr Acacia 15-Sep-2021 21:32:04
:: nods slowly, keeping an eye on D’bryn’s every movement :: CEO: Right. And not a single scan this ship could preform told me why. So I need you to try and remember anything you can.
CO Capt Harper 15-Sep-2021 21:32:33
ACTION> The mines strike the now-slower dreadnoughts and, while a few are shot down, most find their targets. One dreadnought is destroyed from the sheer number of them.
CMO LCdr Acacia 15-Sep-2021 21:32:42
CEO: We’re about to go to battle with twenty-two Xovul ships. Your ride may get bumpy.
CSO Cdr Wright 15-Sep-2021 21:33:19
:: knows that the mines must have transformed by now, and that things are still going according to plan - keeps repeating this to herself in her mind ::
CEO LtJG D’bryn 15-Sep-2021 21:33:27
CMO: Oh. :: furrows brow :: That's right. It's one of those timelines.
TAC 1Lt Ammora 15-Sep-2021 21:33:40
:: makes a note of destroyed targets and Refuge's continual assault using their defensive mechanisms ::
XO Cdr Kuari 15-Sep-2021 21:33:53
:: watches the pre-emptive assault damage play out on the enemy fleet, which will help determine their tactical state for the rest of the battle ::
CEO LtJG D’bryn 15-Sep-2021 21:34:07
CMO: Wait, how 'about' are we talkin? Like, next week? Couple days?
CMO LCdr Acacia 15-Sep-2021 21:34:26
:: blinks :: CEO: You’ve been here before? We’re talking... minutes, maybe seconds, here.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 15-Sep-2021 21:35:29
CMO: Minutes?! :: starts to get up :: I gotta go!
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 15-Sep-2021 21:35:54
:: watches the approaching fleet contend with the trap that was laid for them with something possibly akin to a smile tugging the corners of her mouth inside her helmet ::
CTO Cpt Grey 15-Sep-2021 21:35:55
:: whistles in happiness :: Bridge: Mines did more damage than expected! Down to twenty-one dreadnoughts now to fight.
CMO LCdr Acacia 15-Sep-2021 21:36:15
:: pushes D’bryn back towards the bed, gentle but firm :: CEO: No, you don’t. Your muscles have atrophied, you’ll be here at least a day or two.
CO Capt Harper 15-Sep-2021 21:36:30
:: nods, glad their simulations were conservative ::
ACTION> The dreadnoughts resume their approach, either assuming that all of the mines are gone, or no longer caring about their effects.
XO Cdr Kuari 15-Sep-2021 21:36:45
:: nods curtly as the back corners of her mouth turn slightly upward :: CTO: Starting strong, good.
CTO Cpt Grey 15-Sep-2021 21:37:10
XO: Let's keep this push then!
TAC 1Lt Ammora 15-Sep-2021 21:37:16
:: sees the Xovul approaching again ::
CEO LtJG D’bryn 15-Sep-2021 21:37:28
CMO: I feel fine, Emily, I really do. I can reroute power like nobody's business.
TAC 1Lt Ammora 15-Sep-2021 21:37:37
:: right hand trembles, shakes it off ::
CO Capt Harper 15-Sep-2021 21:37:44
ACTION> The dreadnoughts run into a second and final wave of mines, which then power up and seek their targets.
TAC 1Lt Ammora 15-Sep-2021 21:38:06
:: smiles ::
CEO LtJG D’bryn 15-Sep-2021 21:38:15
CMO: Also, sorry if we haven't gotten to first-name basis yet. Sometimes it's earlier, sometimes it's later.
CMO LCdr Acacia 15-Sep-2021 21:38:26
:: looks at D’bryn dubiously, running another scan :: CEO: I’m... skeptical. Here, try to stand. :: she takes both of D’bryn’s arms to steady her ::
:: smirks :: CEO: And Emily is fine.
TAC 1Lt Ammora 15-Sep-2021 21:39:03
CTO: Refuge defenses holding...
CO Capt Harper 15-Sep-2021 21:39:08
ACTION> Several of the mines strike while hidden, and the remainder go about their grim work. More are shot down than before since the Xovul have seen this trick, but the cumulative damage results in the destruction of another dreadnought.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 15-Sep-2021 21:39:26
:: pushes to the edge of the bed; her feet make a solid landing :: :: she's a little shaky ::
CTO Cpt Grey 15-Sep-2021 21:39:29
TAC: Good. Keep an eye on their approach and current state of defenses for Refuge.
CMO LCdr Acacia 15-Sep-2021 21:39:48
:: steadies her, then very slowly lets go, keeping her hands close in case of a fall ::
TAC 1Lt Ammora 15-Sep-2021 21:39:57
CO/CTO: Two Xovul ships down.
CO Capt Harper 15-Sep-2021 21:40:11
TAC: Those mines pack a lunch.
XO Cdr Kuari 15-Sep-2021 21:40:38
:: squints a little at Harper, not understanding the reference ::
CEO LtJG D’bryn 15-Sep-2021 21:40:41
:: steadies herself with CMO's help :: CMO: How do I look?
CTO Cpt Grey 15-Sep-2021 21:40:50
CO: I think you mean Pack a Punch, Captain.
CSO Cdr Wright 15-Sep-2021 21:41:19
:: frowns slightly in annoyance - is this really the time to be correcting idioms? ::
CO Capt Harper 15-Sep-2021 21:41:37
:: doesn't understand, since a lunch is far more useful to pack, but has more important things to thing about ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 15-Sep-2021 21:41:56
:: runs yet another scan, her tricorder beeping away. After a moment, she sighs with frustration :: CEO: Just as in perfect health as before, only now you’re conscious. How many... ‘timelines’ did you say you experienced?
TAC 1Lt Ammora 15-Sep-2021 21:42:48
CO/CTO: I don't know, I was always happy with apples and peanut butter.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 15-Sep-2021 21:43:15
CMO: :: excited by the 'perfect health' :: I lost count. Can I...not to be rude, but can I get up to the bridge now?
CSO Cdr Wright 15-Sep-2021 21:43:25
:: almost turns around to give Ammora a look ::
CO Capt Harper 15-Sep-2021 21:43:47
Bridge: Focus, everyone.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 15-Sep-2021 21:43:49
:: notices Hannah still asleep on another biobed, suddenly sad :: CMO: Hannah too?
CTO Cpt Grey 15-Sep-2021 21:43:58
:: has an idea :: CO: Do you think, afterwards, that Refuge would give us the formula for their mines?
CO Capt Harper 15-Sep-2021 21:43:58
:: narrows her eyes as the Xovul begin moving again ::
TAC 1Lt Ammora 15-Sep-2021 21:44:12
:: shuts his god damn mouth ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 15-Sep-2021 21:44:14
:: stows her tricorder wand and sighs another frustrated sigh :: CEO: Fine. But you’re to report back as soon as the battle is over, understood?
CO Capt Harper 15-Sep-2021 21:44:15
CTO: I can certainly ask.
CMO LCdr Acacia 15-Sep-2021 21:44:34
:: nods gravely at the glance to Hannah :: CEO: Yeah... same time as you.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 15-Sep-2021 21:45:35
Hannah: Oh, my love, I've missed you. :: walks over, kisses her forehead ::
CO Capt Harper 15-Sep-2021 21:45:43
ACTION> As the first of the dreadnoughts clears the asteroids, along with the debris of mines and its allies, Refuge's massive cannons open fire. Blue streaks surge through space, striking the lead ship. The battle is on.
CMO LCdr Acacia 15-Sep-2021 21:45:53
:: observes this with a raised brow ::
CSO Cdr Wright 15-Sep-2021 21:46:16
:: sets her jaw in an attempt at resolute ::
CEO LtJG D’bryn 15-Sep-2021 21:46:20

:: exits sickbay, sprints for the turbolift ::
CO Capt Harper 15-Sep-2021 21:46:44
:: she watches the ships concealed behind the approach stay hidden, as they practiced ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 15-Sep-2021 21:46:48
:: watches with an exasperated expression as she leaves, then goes to scan Hannah ::
Hannah Ziredac 15-Sep-2021 21:47:12
:: doesn't open her eyes :: CMO: Is she gone?
TAC 1Lt Ammora 15-Sep-2021 21:47:12
CO/CTO: Xovul ships clearing the outer defenses!
XO Cdr Kuari 15-Sep-2021 21:48:02
TAC: Indeed, Mr. Ammora. Bridge: Make sure your seatbelts are fastened, here we go.
CMO LCdr Acacia 15-Sep-2021 21:48:02
:: nods, then realizes her eyes are still closed :: Hannah: She is. Don’t suppose you’re prepared to be a little more forthcoming with information than she was?
CTO Cpt Grey 15-Sep-2021 21:48:04
TAC: Prepare to fire torpedoes!
CO Capt Harper 15-Sep-2021 21:48:22
ACTION> The Xovul continue to close on Refuge, and are almost within weapons range.
TAC 1Lt Ammora 15-Sep-2021 21:48:26
CTO: Torpedoes prepped!
CEO LtJG D’bryn 15-Sep-2021 21:48:39
:: gets in turbolift :: Bridge. +ENG+ D'bryn to Engineering, who's my second right now? Nieman? Pierce? Archer?
TAC 1Lt Ammora 15-Sep-2021 21:49:27
:: hands deftly move across the weapons systems ::
CO Capt Harper 15-Sep-2021 21:49:33
CSO: Fleetwide weapons free when in range, flanking ships still hold until all targets are ahead of them, as planned.
ENG Ens Archer 15-Sep-2021 21:50:18
::flabbergasted to hear CEO's voice, stammers:: +CEO+ This is Archer. ...Lieutenant D'bryn?
CSO Cdr Wright 15-Sep-2021 21:50:25
CO: Aye. :: fires off the appropriate prepared message to the fleet ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 15-Sep-2021 21:50:27
:: finishes her scan, analyzing the data :: Hannah: Really, I won’t judge. I just need to know what kind of medical boogeyman I’m up against here.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 15-Sep-2021 21:51:14
+ENG+ Archer! Great, yeah, that's right. Hey, yeah, it's me. No time. How's she lookin? The ship, I mean. Are we ready for what's gonna hit us?
CO Capt Harper 15-Sep-2021 21:52:08
ACTION> The two fleets come within firing range. The Xovul open fire and launch fighters, and all hell breaks loose as the allies respond, though their reaction is controlled and orderly, at first, as if they've practiced this... because they have.
Hannah Ziredac 15-Sep-2021 21:52:10
:: opens her eyes :: Oh, it was no big deal. Just some mystical force rewinding my own life on me. Sounds like it was the same for her too.

:: closes her tricorder :: Hannah: And possibly your future, if she’d seen this battle. :: she glances around :: Any idea what you two were exposed to that might have caused this? Or even a time frame, to check ship’s logs against?

Hannah Ziredac 15-Sep-2021 21:56:06
CMO: Well, if she's anything like me, she never had the same lifetime twice. Maybe she did something to avoid the battle altogether, maybe she did every time. You'd have to ask her.
CTO Cpt Grey 15-Sep-2021 21:56:08
:: nods sharply :: TAC: Take aim on target and fire at will!

:: nods attentively, appreciating her candor :: Hannah: Well you had both worked on your ship a lot recently. Maybe there’s something on board that you were both exposed to. A radiation leak, an electromagnetic pulse...
CO Capt Harper 15-Sep-2021 21:58:23
ACTION> The combined fire of four Starfleet vessels does a serious number on the already-damaged dreadnought, but it holds together.
