Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
Atlantis is in orbit around Wenkudia. After an attack from an EMP, the saboteur has been apprehended and is recovering in sickbay. The crew works to fully restore power, and look for answers as to which faction is responsible.

CTO Cpt Grey 19-Jan-2022 21:26:38

XO Cdr Kuari 19-Jan-2022 21:32:33

SCI Lt Herschel 19-Jan-2022 21:36:08
CSO: Commander, I am having a light debate with another science officer about something and I was wondering if you would chime in with your opinion...
CEO LtJG D’bryn 19-Jan-2022 21:36:35
SCI: Another philosophical debate about good and evil?
CTO Cpt Grey 19-Jan-2022 21:36:45
:: straightens, turning from the console, giving a salute to Harper :: CO: Ready, ma'am?
SCI Lt Herschel 19-Jan-2022 21:36:52
CEO: Ah, not this time! You see, the subject of centaurs came up.
CO Cdor Harper 19-Jan-2022 21:37:02
:: nods to Grey :: CTO: Have they said anything yet?
CEO LtJG D’bryn 19-Jan-2022 21:37:09
SCI: The...the mythological creature?
CMO LCdr Acacia 19-Jan-2022 21:37:30
:: when she’s satisfied, she taps her combadge :: +XO+ Our ten guests are ready to start heading home.
SCI Lt Herschel 19-Jan-2022 21:37:45
CEO: Ja! You understand!
CEO LtJG D’bryn 19-Jan-2022 21:37:58
:: can't wait to hear this ::
CTO Cpt Grey 19-Jan-2022 21:38:33
:: gestures deeper into the brig, taking the lead to show the captain to the prisoner :: CO: Unforunately no, besides what was said in the medbay earlier. I didn't want to proceed until another officer was present.
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Jan-2022 21:38:48
:: looks over at Rike and raises her eyebrows ::
XO Cdr Kuari 19-Jan-2022 21:39:11

CO Cdor Harper 19-Jan-2022 21:39:13
CTO: Prudent. :: nods approvingly, then steps up to the holding cell alongside Grey ::
XO Cdr Kuari 19-Jan-2022 21:40:01
:: nods to Wright in regards to Acacia's comm ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 19-Jan-2022 21:40:04
:: nods, going to tell all her staff to expect imminent transports ::
SCI Lt Herschel 19-Jan-2022 21:40:41
CSO: You see, the other science officer thinks that there are two pairs of hearts and lungs. However, I believe that there is a pair of lungs and one heart in the horse half, while there is extra muscle in the human half. My opinion is that it works like a giraffe. :: raises eyebrows for a response ::
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Jan-2022 21:40:43

NAV Lt Navarro 19-Jan-2022 21:44:02
XO: Commander, permission to go to the assault bay? The helm is stable and running diagnostics, so I'd like to check on the fighters personally.
CTO Cpt Grey 19-Jan-2022 21:44:18
:: touches the control pad for the holding cell, glancing at the Captain before pressing the speaker :: Prisoner> Step back to the furthest wall, hands where we can see them. :: waits for the prisoner to obey before proceeding ::
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Jan-2022 21:44:27

XO Cdr Kuari 19-Jan-2022 21:45:00
:: looks up at Navarro :: NAV: Sure...we'll no doubt be in orbit for some time.
CO Cdor Harper 19-Jan-2022 21:45:03
:: doesn't wait for the Prisoner to step back before she speaks :: PW: Hello. I am Commodore Kathryn Harper, the captain of this ship. Your attack on us was quite puzzling, as we are here as peacemakers. Why did you do it?
NAV Lt Navarro 19-Jan-2022 21:45:17
:: stands and secures the station :: Thank you, commander.
:: heads into the TL and directs it to the assault bay ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 19-Jan-2022 21:45:33
:: helps direct the flow of traffic as Sickbay cleans up after the patients while they sit in their beds waiting for transport ::

SCI Lt Herschel 19-Jan-2022 21:46:06
:: puts hands up in air, shakes her head, and sets her PADD down, turning to more science-y things at her console ::
NAV Lt Navarro 19-Jan-2022 21:47:21
:: enters the assault bay, hoping that since the fighters were powered down at the time of the attack, they'll have been fine ::
XO Cdr Kuari 19-Jan-2022 21:48:03
PrisonerWenkudian> :: frowns, seemingly caught off guard by Harper's response and looks between them :: CO/CTO:'re not going to torture me?
CEO LtJG D’bryn 19-Jan-2022 21:48:05
SCI: Hey Rike, here's one for you: In what configuration would a centaur wear pants? On the hind legs, covering the buttocks, and stopping somewhere along the midsection? Or on all four legs, covering the entire underside of the creature, belting around its horizontal meridian?
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Jan-2022 21:48:40
CEO: The latter. :: does not look up ::
SCI Lt Herschel 19-Jan-2022 21:49:08
:: looks up from her console :: CEO: Trick question, centaurs are raised in a nudist culture.
CTO Cpt Grey 19-Jan-2022 21:49:20
:: exchanges a concerned look with Harper :: Prisoner> It's against our protocols. We never torture to get answers.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 19-Jan-2022 21:49:37
:: smirks at Wright's answer :: SCI: Not an option. How would they wear pants if they did?
XO Cdr Kuari 19-Jan-2022 21:49:43
:: perks an ear, confused as to what prompted such a conversation about mythical creatures ::
CO Cdor Harper 19-Jan-2022 21:49:46
:: shares a look with Grey and follows up :: PW: That is not who we are, and it is not what the uniform that we wear stands for.
CMO LCdr Acacia 19-Jan-2022 21:50:26
:: sits down in her office, relieved to finally be off her feet for a few minutes, and works on finalizing anonymized charts to be submitted in the diplomatic data packet ::
NAV Lt Navarro 19-Jan-2022 21:50:51
:: approaches the Rocinante and climbs in, then initiates the powerup sequence ::
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Jan-2022 21:51:13
:: turns and looks at D'bryn :: CEO: You listed options, I said the latter, meaning the last one. How is that not an option?
XO Cdr Kuari 19-Jan-2022 21:51:17
PrisonerWenkudian> :: looks even more surprised by Grey's answer :: CO/CTO: Well...I was hired. The pay was good, and I heard you were a threat to our people. You'll get nothing more than that from me, so you might as well quit now.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 19-Jan-2022 21:51:35
CSO: I was asking Rike, Commander.
SCI Lt Herschel 19-Jan-2022 21:51:40
CEO: Different answer- on the front legs with suspenders.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 19-Jan-2022 21:52:34
SCI: You come to the conclusion so quickly...
CO Cdor Harper 19-Jan-2022 21:52:38
:: shakes her head, saddened to hear this ::
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Jan-2022 21:53:14
CEO: Oh... right. :: faintly colors with embarrassment and turns back to her console quickly, internally chiding herself for getting involved in the first place ::
SCI Lt Herschel 19-Jan-2022 21:53:20
CEO: Lets just say that I have a lot of time to think to myself when I do my morning exercises.
CTO Cpt Grey 19-Jan-2022 21:53:21
:: glances to Harper, keeping emotions down ::
CO Cdor Harper 19-Jan-2022 21:54:24
PW: Your choice of an EMP hints at a desire to cause us enough trouble to make us want to leave, but also at a desire to avoid hurting anyone and potentially provoke a counter-attack from us.
SCI Lt Herschel 19-Jan-2022 21:55:06
CEO: Also, alternatively, the centaur could choose to wear a onesie covering the entire body!
CTO Cpt Grey 19-Jan-2022 21:55:14
:: snaps her attention to the prisoner, watching the other carefully for any signs of tension or giveaways ::
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Jan-2022 21:55:27

NAV Lt Navarro 19-Jan-2022 21:55:59
:: is relived when Rocinante powers up completely with no issues :: Atta girl.
CTO Cpt Grey 19-Jan-2022 21:56:32
PW: "The idea was not to be able to..." What? Finish that sentence, would you, please? :: asks politely with a toothy grin ::
CO Cdor Harper 19-Jan-2022 21:57:12
:: clasps her hands :: Grey: Not be able to counter-attack, I believe it was going to be.
PW: Which is evidence of two gross underestimations: that of our technological capability, along with our desire to broker peace here.
CTO Cpt Grey 19-Jan-2022 21:58:33
:: taps her chin with a finger, nodding :: Harper: That does make sense with the sentence structure...:: falls silent to let Harper take over ::
XO Cdr Kuari 19-Jan-2022 21:58:33
PrisonerWenkudian> :: looks away ::
SCI Lt Herschel 19-Jan-2022 21:58:44
:: sends Acacia a PADD message: Quick question. Centaurs: two pairs of hearts and lungs, one each in the human and horse half, or one heart and pair of lungs in horse half, like a giraffe? ::
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Jan-2022 21:59:03
:: energizes both groups of formerly wounded back to their designated home coordinates ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 19-Jan-2022 21:59:42
:: looks at her PADD, swipes through the notifications, then stops and gives the screen a puzzled look ::
CO Cdor Harper 19-Jan-2022 21:59:49
PW: You were badly misinformed by whoever hired you, I am afraid. Perhaps even set up for failure? How were you going to recover from the injuries the EMP caused you in a drifting, disabled ship? Or were you aware that you were on a suicide mission for someone else's misguided cause?
CMO LCdr Acacia 19-Jan-2022 22:00:45
:: pauses and sits back in her chair, really thinking about it ::
XO Cdr Kuari 19-Jan-2022 22:01:07
PrisonerWenkudian> :: speaks, more quietly than before, deadpan and staring off to the side :: CO: It...was to go to my family.
CO Cdor Harper 19-Jan-2022 22:01:57
:: softly :: PW: If you are that desperate to help your family, help us end the war that threatens everyone on your world, including them.
CTO Cpt Grey 19-Jan-2022 22:02:02
:: blinks, looking to Harper, then to the prisoner, waiting for elaboration ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 19-Jan-2022 22:02:17
:: decides to approach this scientifically and starts searching for any data, studies, or theories about centaurs, as well as dialing in on what a ‘centaur’ entails ::
SCI Lt Herschel 19-Jan-2022 22:02:18
:: continues to coordinate science lab stuff while she waits ::
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Jan-2022 22:02:54
XO: Transports are complete, Commander.
XO: Additionally, I have scan data of the saboteur's shuttle... it does not clearly belong to either faction, as far as I can tell.
XO Cdr Kuari 19-Jan-2022 22:03:31
PrisonerWenkudian> :: considers it for a moment, then balks :: CO: No. It's guaranteed, already done. I won't say another word!
CMO LCdr Acacia 19-Jan-2022 22:03:39

XO Cdr Kuari 19-Jan-2022 22:03:52
:: frowns :: CSO: A third faction...?
CO Cdor Harper 19-Jan-2022 22:04:06

CMO LCdr Acacia 19-Jan-2022 22:04:47
:: gets up, gets a coffee, paces around thinking for a minute, then sends a PADD message to Rike :: Rike: Like a giraffe, I reckon.
SCI Lt Herschel 19-Jan-2022 22:05:08
:: nods when a report reaches her that the bee plant pollination was successful ::
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Jan-2022 22:05:51

CMO LCdr Acacia 19-Jan-2022 22:17:17
:: leans back in her chair and basks in the quiet hum of a patient-free Sickbay ::
CSO Cdr Wright 19-Jan-2022 22:18:44
:: thinks for a moment :: SCI: ...Good enough. We need to find material components in the saboteur's vessel that don't match either of the primary factions and scan the planet for those materials.

+CO+ Commodore Harper. I thought you might wish to see what, exactly, is at stake down here. We would like to invite you to tour one of our camps in the "disputed" territory and see for yourself the resources that are the focal point of our conflict.
