Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
As repairs are being finished aboard Atlantis, an away team beams down to the surface of Wenkudia, to a location within Thrin'pa territory where ship-building resources are mined. The Leuk'pa faction claims the area is rightfully theirs, and as arbitrators we have been invited to see part of what is in dispute.

Nourik 26-Jan-2022 21:16:32
This facility is, primarly, a dilithium mine and refinery, one of the only ones on the planet. As we are relatively new to building warp-capable ships, you can see how that would be a point of contention.

:: panik ::
Nourik 26-Jan-2022 21:31:36
:: nods to Wright :: They do, of course. It is just the scarcity of dilithium itself here that is the issue.

:: serious face :: Nourik: Well, certainly one can't be expected to run an operation like this without tea.
Vervaise 26-Jan-2022 21:33:31
:: interjects :: And moved some of the controls around.
Nourik 26-Jan-2022 21:33:51

CO Cdor Harper 26-Jan-2022 21:35:09
SCI: This data points to Thrin'pa territory as the most likely origin of the saboteur's ship. Was that also your conclusion?
Hannah Ziredac 26-Jan-2022 21:35:33

Nourik 26-Jan-2022 21:36:41
Yes. Would you all care for some?
CSO Cdr Wright 26-Jan-2022 21:37:06
Vervaise: What change would be so important as to do it in such a manner?
SCI Lt Herschel 26-Jan-2022 21:37:15

:: shifts her attention back to Nourik at the mention of tea, but can’t ignore that she was spoken to. She seems surprised to be asked :: CSO: Well, I’m no engineer, but… I remember they switched shield and engine controls, something about their… regulations. :: she shrugs ::
CEO LtJG D’bryn 26-Jan-2022 21:39:45
:: squinches half of her face :: Vervaise: Why change controls around? That doesn't make any sense.
CO Cdor Harper 26-Jan-2022 21:40:16
:: thinks on that for a half a second before answering :: SCI: Not yet.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 26-Jan-2022 21:40:26
Vervaise: Like, the shield and engine systems are still in the same place, but they moved the controls?

:: frowns, listening to the conversation with Vervaise ::
CSO Cdr Wright 26-Jan-2022 21:40:43

Vervaise 26-Jan-2022 21:41:02
:: gives an enigmatic shrug :: I mean, I agree, I don’t know what to tell you.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 26-Jan-2022 21:41:02
Vervaise/CSO: Unimportant and just needlessly confusing.
CSO Cdr Wright 26-Jan-2022 21:41:20
CEO: Seems like a waste of resources.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 26-Jan-2022 21:41:21
Vervaise: Can I please see these controls?
Nourik 26-Jan-2022 21:41:53
Someone theorized that it was sabotage as they were about to lose control of the facility again. I am not sure that I agree, but it is a possibility.
