Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
After a tour of industrial facilities within Thrin'pa territory on Wenkudia, an unarmed explosive was found at the entrance to the faction's mine and the away team was beamed aboard Atlantis in orbit. Everyone is safe, but questions need to be answered as to who is responsible for attempts at sabotage.

XO Cdr Kuari 09-Feb-2022 21:22:40
CO: This was probably between the two factions, but Atlantis was sabotaged, and it could be related.
CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 21:23:02
XO: My people were threatened even if it was between the factions.
XO Cdr Kuari 09-Feb-2022 21:23:06

CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 21:27:20
CMO: Not anything medicinal. I brewed some of my Big Sky tea, and usually just smelling that usually starts winding me down.
TAC 1Lt Ammora 09-Feb-2022 21:27:33
:: moves into his quarters, promptly hurls the chair across the room ::
CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 21:27:37

CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 21:35:40
CSO: Stand by until you hear from both, then bring them on simultaneously.
CSO Cdr Wright 09-Feb-2022 21:36:08

:: Picard-maneuvers and straightens to face the main viewer ::
Nourik 09-Feb-2022 21:38:00
Commodore Harper! Thank you for checking in. We have disarmed and disposed of the explosive, and please accept my apologies for the danger your team faced.
CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 21:38:21
:: dips her head to Nourik then eyes the other half of the screen, not finding Pherzen, as she expected ::
Tenshen 09-Feb-2022 21:39:17
:: answers the comm on one side of the screen, seeming a bit flustered when answering, but then straightens formally. He's a new face in place of Pherzen, sporting the same tendrils above each ear as every other Wenkudian, little glowy dots at each end just visible to either side of the head :: Atlantis um, Captain Harper, I believe? :: notes the other feed, recognizing Nourik ::
CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 21:39:23
:: sighs :: CMO: The background kind of takes a lot to explain, and I don't know how to explain it. How much time ya got?
CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 21:40:08
+Comm+ Commodore Harper, but yes. I do not believe we have met.

:: sends the report to T'Lira, but omits the overlooked repair that Jester's fighter required, since there's no sense in getting the deck gang in trouble when his life is in their hands ::

:: seems somewhat surprised to have a Luek'pa on the call, but remains cordial ::
CTO Cpt Grey 09-Feb-2022 21:42:52

CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 21:42:57
CMO: Well, buckle up. :: clears throat ::
CSO Cdr Wright 09-Feb-2022 21:43:10
:: is curious, but maintains proper bridge decorum ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 09-Feb-2022 21:43:22
:: rests her hands in her lap, sitting forward to listen actively ::
TAC 1Lt Ammora 09-Feb-2022 21:43:39
Self: She's not who she says she is, but is she?
CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 21:43:53
CMO: So I have this... thing. I've been dealing with it for over a year and I still don't exactly know what it is, what exactly it does, what it can do, or anything. All I know is that it's a little... Light.
TAC 1Lt Ammora 09-Feb-2022 21:44:03
Self: Zoe trusts her, so you should. Should I?
CAG LCdr T’Lira 09-Feb-2022 21:44:08
:: notes the report as it appears on the console, but sets it aside temporarily in favor of watching the viewscreen, listening to the conversation intently ::
CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 21:44:18
:: demonstrates with fingers, something the size of a small marble :: CMO: About yea big.
CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 21:44:22
:: nods to Tenshen :: +Comm+ Colonel. Thank you both for your time. We have a few questions, in hopes of finding a common understanding between both of your peoples, along with us.
CMO LCdr Acacia 09-Feb-2022 21:44:28
:: nods slowly, understanding :: CEO: The relic that caused your… incident?
CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 21:44:42
CMO: Yeah.
CMO LCdr Acacia 09-Feb-2022 21:45:05
:: gives another nod, on the same page now ::
CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 21:45:27
:: turns and walks slowly, but purposefully, back to her chair, then sits ::
Nourik 09-Feb-2022 21:45:40
Of course, Commodore. How can we help?
CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 21:45:41
CMO: At first it only filled my head with the memories of other people, at the moment of their death. Real cheery stuff. Then it started acting as a conduit that broke all laws of space and time that I'm familiar with. And then, the incident in question: reliving my life a grand total of nineteen times.
CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 21:46:49
+Comm+ Recently, our ship was attacked by a saboteur with an EMP device. Fortunately, no one was hurt and our damage was ultimately trivial. That saboteur is in our brig, and her shuttle was analyzed. Its components likely originated from Thrin'pa territory.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 21:47:01
CMO: So, because of the Light, even though my body is in my body is twenty-five, my consciousness is in the neighborhood of 1,500 years old.
CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 21:47:08
:: holds up her finger as Nourik starts to speak ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 09-Feb-2022 21:47:10
:: purses her lips and nods again :: CEO: Yes, and how have you been processing those experiences?
CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 21:47:43
CMO: Until earlier, it was... weird but fine? Then I faced death.
CMO LCdr Acacia 09-Feb-2022 21:48:08
:: takes a moment to think about that ::
CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 21:48:56
CMO: Something about it was different from being on the bridge while we fought the Xovul. I was exposed. I was right there, looking at the thing that could vaporize me. That could end such an unnaturally long ride. And I just felt... I just felt scared.
TAC 1Lt Ammora 09-Feb-2022 21:49:00
:: paces :: Self: Something doesn't add up...
CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 21:49:15
+Comm+ Our away team was recently endangered by an explosive device while touring the dilithium mine and refinery currently held by the Thrin'pa. :: looks toward Tenshen's side of the screen :: Now, this situation is full of political intrigue, but I do not think the Leuk'pa are interested in destroying the facilities you are fighting over.
CMO LCdr Acacia 09-Feb-2022 21:50:12
:: nods attentively :: CEO: Well, that would be the normal feeling. From a nineteen year old human kid to a Trill on their eighth life, death scares us all. And I’m sorry you had to face it like that.
CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 21:51:21
+Comm+ So, you see, some of these discoveries are confusing, if not outright contradictory, against some of what we have been told about why we are here in the first place; in hopes of brokering peace among your people.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 21:51:37
CMO: Thank you.
CMO: I just... I don't want to be an agoraphobe, you know? I don't want to be scared of an early death skulking around every corner.
CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 21:52:33
+Comm+ If either of you can offer some explanations, that would be appreciated.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 21:52:40
CMO: And death... I experienced it. Nineteen times. It's not something you get used to. But after the first one—or, maybe first two—I knew what would happen afterwards. I would wake up and start again.
CMO: This time, I don't know what happens after.
TAC 1Lt Ammora 09-Feb-2022 21:52:52
Self: You wanted adventure, you wanted to be off a starbase, you wanted to explore the galaxy... and here you are.
CMO LCdr Acacia 09-Feb-2022 21:53:07
:: thinks for another moment, not being much of a therapist :: CEO: Well, a little bit of fear is healthy. It’s when we focus on that fear too much where it becomes unhealthy. When it controls us or our time or our thoughts.
Nourik 09-Feb-2022 21:53:22
We would never think of attacking Atlantis, Commodore! After all, we asked you to come help end this war.
That must be some sort of... :: glances at Tenshen :: mistake.
CMO LCdr Acacia 09-Feb-2022 21:54:08
CEO: And… I don’t know what happens when we die. All I can do is die knowing I made the world a better place. :: she smiles :: Which you have.
Tenshen 09-Feb-2022 21:55:04
:: notes Nourik on the comm again, then starts at Harper's alarming but confusing words :: +CO+ I...don't know of any such plans or attacks from the Leuk'pa, Commodore. This is disturbing news. Are you absolutely sure? Because I myself certainly would not want to destroy valuable, necessary assets to the Wenkudian people.
CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 21:55:54
+Comm+ We certainly planted no explosives, Colonel. If not us, then the source must be Wenkudian.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 21:56:26
CMO: That's really kind and lovely of you to say. Thank you.
CMO: I'm not really scared of the life I'll leave behind, so much. I'm... I was pretty agnostic before this Light shit, but god damn, it has me really scared of what happens after.
CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 21:59:23
+Comm+ I am still committed to brokering peace. What I said during the meeting aboard Atlantis about the future of your people, I meant with all of my being. But I cannot sit idly by while my crew is endangered. Sabotaging Atlantis or endangering my crew is sabotaging your own future, because you will drive us away. I suspect one of you might have that goal in mind.
CMO LCdr Acacia 09-Feb-2022 21:59:50
:: nods, thinking about it :: CEO: Well you know you’ll be scared when the time comes. Why get ahead of yourself? Put off the getting scared for when it actually happens. :: her expression says that she’s not sure if this is sound advice :: Or… you know, become religious. If that’s your thing.
TAC 1Lt Ammora 09-Feb-2022 22:00:02
Self: What the hell are you doing out here?
Nourik 09-Feb-2022 22:01:04
The Thrin'pa asked for your help, and we have no desire to drive you away. We are also still open to cooperation with the Leuk'pa. :: looks to Tenshen again ::
CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 22:01:15
:: chuckles :: CMO: All hail the weird Light shit.
CMO LCdr Acacia 09-Feb-2022 22:01:43
:: shrugs :: CEO: All hail time, and all the experience it gave you.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 22:03:18
CMO: Yeah. I'm definitely grateful for all of it.
CMO LCdr Acacia 09-Feb-2022 22:03:55
:: smiles :: CEO: That’s a good place to be with it. I’m sure you still have plenty of unpacking to do, though.
CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 22:05:48
:: focuses her attention on Tenshen as well ::
CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 22:05:52
CMO: Oh, the logs I've been sending to my therapist have been on the long side, for sure.
TAC 1Lt Ammora 09-Feb-2022 22:06:00
Self: No, you were asked... told... to do something. You did it. But you don't know why.
Self: Why don't I know why?!
:: opens his communications console ::
:: slams it shut again :: Self: No, you follow orders...
CMO LCdr Acacia 09-Feb-2022 22:06:58
:: seems relieved, buckling slightly under the weight of having to give advice :: CEO: I’m glad you’re working with a therapist. But at a certain point, it must feel like you know more than them, huh?
Tenshen 09-Feb-2022 22:07:19
:: looks between his screens of Nourik and Harper, seeming conflicted, but has a genuine look to him :: CO: I...cannot explain where this sabotage comes from, but I can look into it. I cannot imagine Nourik would attempt to do so when asking for you assistance, but I don't... :: collects himself :: I assue you, I am unaware of attempts at sabotage from the Leuk'pa. Rest assured, I will look into it.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 22:08:20
CMO: Not in the psychology department, but Ori has definitely been grappling with the concept of the Light.
CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 22:08:49

CMO LCdr Acacia 09-Feb-2022 22:09:27

CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 22:10:09
CMO: It gets a little exhausting when you're part of it, though.
CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 22:10:34
+Tenshen+ Please do, because they must stop, immediately. :: inclines her chin at Tenshen :: You took over for General Pherzen, yes? May I ask why?
CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 22:11:20
CMO: I really appreciate your help. I feel way better.
CMO LCdr Acacia 09-Feb-2022 22:12:02
:: seems happy to hear that, getting a small shot of energy :: CEO: Of course. I’m always here if you need to talk, and I mean that, not just the platitude people say.
Tenshen 09-Feb-2022 22:12:13
:: looks uncomfortable for a moment, then takes a deep breath :: CO: General Pherzen is...indisposed. On mission, Commodore.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 09-Feb-2022 22:12:40
CMO: Thank you, Emily.
CMO: Well, I better get back to being the chief engineer of a Federation starship. You wanna grab a bite when we're off duty?
CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 22:13:59
+Tenshen+ I see. In that case, please have him contact us upon his return. We seek another meeting of the factions, in search of peace. :: leaves that out there in the wake of Tenshen's discomfort ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 09-Feb-2022 22:14:21
:: feigns drama :: CEO: Oh yes, and I have to get back to running sickbay. :: she chuckles :: Sure! That sounds great.

:: feels the hairs on the back of her neck standing up, and looks up from her console to meet Kuari's look, and snapping off a slight salute accompanied by a grin of someone who had been listening and following the track of the conversation:: XO: There's... something off about Tenshen.

:: steps in and smiles, his eyes seemingly peering through the robe before meeting hers :: Jester: Hola, preciosa. Sī, I'm on shift, but I wanted to stop by and tell you that I found a problem that the EMP caused on the Shinigami. The deck gang took care of it.
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 09-Feb-2022 22:37:07
:: her expression grows serious when he mentions her fighter :: Zorro: Shit. I didn't even think to check.
CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 22:37:14
CTO: Of course, the meetings aboard Atlantis are easily available to you. Beyond that, you can search what the Wenkudians have given us access to.
NAV Lt Navarro 09-Feb-2022 22:38:01
Jester: Why would you? She was powered down. But, something was still online, and it was disrupted. :: grins :: But I've got your wing.
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 09-Feb-2022 22:39:02
Zorro: I can always count on you. Thank you. What happened, anyway?

:: nods, then frowns, tapping into her PADD with her security creditenals, pulling up the recorded comm-calls from the Leuk'pa and settling into her seat to start glancing through all files and recorded history available to them; already sounding distracted :: CO: Perfect. :: starts to hum as she flicks through the files, slowing the videos down to frame-by-frame speed, mind working to piece all the information together ::
NAV Lt Navarro 09-Feb-2022 22:39:32
:: goes into the technical explanation beyond something seeming off which caused him to peek in the cockpit for a whiff of fried electronics ::
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 09-Feb-2022 22:41:00
Zorro: No, no, I mean, I knew something happened, but it was an EMP? Who EMP'd us?
NAV Lt Navarro 09-Feb-2022 22:41:48
Jester: Oh, right; yes, it was an EMP, detonated from just below us. The saboteur is in the brig, but one of the Wenkudian factions set it up. I think it was the Leuk'pa, honestly.
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 09-Feb-2022 22:43:09
Zorro: This diplomacy stuff always turns out more dangerous than it seems.

:: lets out a quiet sound, pausing the video on the first call :: XO: Ma'am! Check this... please... :: stands from her seat, stepping over to Kuari and showing her the slowed down video :: XO: Pherzen's clearly pushing for direct war, her tone and posture are showing key signs of anger in comparsion to that of humanoid...
NAV Lt Navarro 09-Feb-2022 22:45:00
Jester: At least it was just an EMP. No one was hurt and our damage was trivial.
CO Cdor Harper 09-Feb-2022 22:45:46
