Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
Atlantis is still orbiting Wenkudia and, while waiting to hear back from the factions’ representatives about our next meeting, has detected fighting on the surface. Bound by regulation to not interfere, we can only observe. On the bridge, there is momentary quiet...

CO Cdor Harper 23-Feb-2022 21:32:56
CSO: The Kascal? Do we have any information on them?
CMO LCdr Acacia 23-Feb-2022 21:33:20

:: raises her eyebrows slightly at this development ::
CO Cdor Harper 23-Feb-2022 21:42:19

:: glances to the other bridge crew, eyebrow raised in curiousity at this fact ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 23-Feb-2022 21:43:50
Joibo> :: ducks as his smoky bridge throws sparks at him :: CO: We do have casualties, and lots of damage. But Vorrin is a holy man, a.. a saint, you would call him. The Seven Chimes are a holy relic, and he was ensuring their safe transport. Losing either of them is very, very bad. The council will have my head!
CO Cdor Harper 23-Feb-2022 21:46:02
+Joibo+ Regardless, would you not say that lives are more important? We can take your wounded aboard and then give chase.
CMO LCdr Acacia 23-Feb-2022 21:46:52
Joibo> :: seems anxious, but acquiesces :: CO: Alright, alright. I care about my crew above all, of course. But we must move quickly!

:: gets up and crosses to the turbolift to head down to Sickbay ::
CSO Cdr Wright 23-Feb-2022 21:48:15
CO: There are 56 life signs aboard, 14 wounded, 3 critically.

:: hears this as the turbolift doors are closing on her, and takes a deep breath ::
CO Cdor Harper 23-Feb-2022 21:48:56
:: nods, glad that lives do seem to take precedence to them over relics :: +Joibo+ We will begin transport of your most critical cases immediately, then track down this Vorrin for you.
:: nods to Lexy :: Begin transport of those seventeen to sickbay.
CMO LCdr Acacia 23-Feb-2022 21:49:34
Joibo> :: bows his head and presses his hands together :: CO: Vorrin-ay.

+Joibo+ While we do, tell me more of Vorrin and the Seven Chimes.
CMO LCdr Acacia 23-Feb-2022 21:50:41
:: arrives in Sickbay shortly, and begins helping as patients start to appear ::
Joibo> +CO+ Well, we keep to ourselves. Our religion is very important to us. The Seven Chimes were played by the first Vorrin, to calm wild snakes and bring peace to the continent. Um… :: he shrugs, then flinches as his bridge throws sparks again :: What do you want to know?
CO Cdor Harper 23-Feb-2022 21:54:04
+Joibo+ Who has taken Vorrin?
CMO LCdr Acacia 23-Feb-2022 21:55:56
Joibo> +CO+ The Kascal! :: he slams his fist on his console :: Thieves of culture and history!
CEO LtJG D’bryn 23-Feb-2022 21:56:25
:: scans the Vorrin ship, sees significant structural damage, irregular spikes in the power output ::
CO Cdor Harper 23-Feb-2022 21:57:20
:: nods as the Kascal are confirmed as being involved :: +Joibo+ Why would they do this?
CMO LCdr Acacia 23-Feb-2022 21:59:17
Joibo> :: shakes his head solemnly :: +CO+ The Chimes? I do not know what use they have for them. But if they kill Vorrin, the line will be broken. Our current Vorrin has no sons. I cannot imagine how our people would react.
CO Cdor Harper 23-Feb-2022 21:59:53
:: nods, gaining some measure of understanding, and looks to Lexy :: CSO: Status of the transports?
CMO LCdr Acacia 23-Feb-2022 22:00:17
:: is scrubbing into surgery to take care of the worst patient ::
CSO Cdr Wright 23-Feb-2022 22:00:34
CO: Transports are complete, Captain.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 23-Feb-2022 22:01:49
CO/+Joibo+: I'm reading substantial structural damage and overloads in their ship's power and deflector systems. I can have Engineering teams beam aboard to assist with repairs.
CO Cdor Harper 23-Feb-2022 22:02:36
:: nods to her wife, then looks back to the main viewer after taking in D'bryn's message :: +Joibo+ Can we beam an engineering team aboard to assist with your repairs?
CMO LCdr Acacia 23-Feb-2022 22:03:23
Joibo> :: still seems a bit antsy :: +CO+ If… if you can, that would be great. But please, you must make chase before they are too far away!

CO Cdor Harper 23-Feb-2022 22:05:57
CTO: Have a security escort meet the engineers in the transporter room.
:: returns the gesture once more ::
CTO Cpt Grey 23-Feb-2022 22:07:11

CO: Warp 9.95, capitana. 9.99 is available if necessary.
CMO LCdr Acacia 23-Feb-2022 22:17:00
ACTION> Two other Kascal ships appear on sensors, coming from different directions. The ship we were following and the other two ships meet up, they get close enough to exchange goods, then the three split off and run in different directions. None are fast enough to outrun us forever, but we must pick one.

Kamina: :: returns a head-bow :: Good to meet ya. I've already noticed a badly-fluctuating power conduit down this corridor, and I got some guys already heading that way. Where's your power distribution hub?
CSO Cdr Wright 23-Feb-2022 22:22:44
CO: Two more Kascal ships coming from different directions just rendezvoused briefly and scattered.
CMO LCdr Acacia 23-Feb-2022 22:23:13
Kamina> :: bobs her head for D’bryn to follow :: CEO: This way. We’ve gone some replacement conduits going in already, but there’s so many overloads.

Kamina> :: seems intrigued :: CEO: Half from two planets? Wow. I think we have something like that, we call them kurokai.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 23-Feb-2022 22:49:30
:: gets to warp core, disengages plasma conduit for replacement :: Kamina: Kurokai. What's the etymology there?
CMO LCdr Acacia 23-Feb-2022 22:50:24
Kamina> CEO: Kuro, light. Kai, stick. It’s a stick that spits sparks out the top, usually put on a table like candles.
CSO Cdr Wright 23-Feb-2022 22:51:01
CO: Still nothing, Captain. Ready to open broadcast channels.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 23-Feb-2022 22:51:18
Kamina: :: laughs :: I'm sorry for misunderstanding; I thought kurokai was your name for someone who's half from two planets.
CO Cdor Harper 23-Feb-2022 22:51:23
:: sighs and nods :: CSO: Do it.
CSO Cdr Wright 23-Feb-2022 22:51:32
:: does it ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 23-Feb-2022 22:52:01
Kamina> :: laughs :: CEO: Oh, no! Sorry. I meant your spark sticks. We don’t have a name for people from two planets. Perhaps we should.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 23-Feb-2022 22:53:16
Kamina: I've never met any Vorrin before. Do your people span a lot of worlds? :: installs new power conduit, moves onto the next one ::
CO Cdor Harper 23-Feb-2022 22:54:01
+Comm+ Kascal vessel, this is Commodore Kathryn Harper of the Federation Starship Atlantis. We have been asked by the Vorrin to retrieve a person abducted from one of their ships following an attack, and have detected such a lifesign aboard your ship. We do not wish to harm you. Please drop out of warp and prepare to transport the Vorrin to us.
CMO LCdr Acacia 23-Feb-2022 22:54:05
Kamina> :: works on replacing another conduit as she answers :: CEO: No. we have out home planet and one colony world, but that is all.
CO Cdor Harper 23-Feb-2022 22:54:17
:: waits for an answer ::
:: really hopes that they didn't also have a decoy Vorrin ::
CEO LtJG D’bryn 23-Feb-2022 22:54:37
Kamina: So pretty relatively new to the space party, huh? Exciting times!
CMO LCdr Acacia 23-Feb-2022 22:54:43
ACTION: The Kascal vessel answers by stopping, turning, and opening fire.
Kamina> CEO: What about you? How many worlds are your people on?
CO Cdor Harper 23-Feb-2022 22:55:34
CTO: Return fire, targeting engines and weapons only!
NAV: Evasives!
CTO Cpt Grey 23-Feb-2022 22:56:04
:: fingers fly over the keys, targeting the engines and weapons squarely between return fire ::
CSO Cdr Wright 23-Feb-2022 22:56:13
:: really, really wishes they hadn't done that, but kind of saw it coming ::
NAV Lt Navarro 23-Feb-2022 22:56:31
:: does the best he can at such high warp, but the speeds slow as the two ships start shooting ::
CO Cdor Harper 23-Feb-2022 22:57:24
:: shakes her head as she buckles her seatbelt ::
CEO LtJG D’bryn 23-Feb-2022 22:57:49
Kamina: Ten or so on the Bajoran side, and I forget how many Earth has by this point. Those are official colonies though. Earthians, at least, are spread all over the place.
CSO Cdr Wright 23-Feb-2022 22:58:01
:: also belatedly buckles her seatbelt ::
CEO LtJG D’bryn 23-Feb-2022 22:58:12
Kamina: Er, Terrans. Earthlings? My girlf—someone I know calls them Earthians. That's not the official term.
CMO LCdr Acacia 23-Feb-2022 22:58:23
ACTION> The Kascal ship is no match for us. Atlantis scores a hit on their weapons, and they stop firing. They attempt to run again, but a second hit on their engines prevents them from jumping back to warp.
CO Cdor Harper 23-Feb-2022 22:58:42
:: shakes her head again; they had to know they were no match before they started firing ::
CSO: Hail them again, and keep an eye on that Vorrin lifesign.
CTO Cpt Grey 23-Feb-2022 22:59:32
:: seriously?, shakes her head in slight embarrassment for them ::
CO Cdor Harper 23-Feb-2022 22:59:38
CTO: Status of their shields?
CSO Cdr Wright 23-Feb-2022 22:59:50
:: hails them again, with an eye on that Vorrin lifesign ::
