Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
With the Wenkudian situation resolved, we now return to the mission of peaceful exploration that it interrupted. After a slipstream flight back to the frontier of explored space, we have returned to the star system we left from to finish cataloging its planets; a gas supergiant close to the star, followed by a terrestrial planet with a dense atmosphere, a second terrestrial planet with an atmosphere, a ringed gas giant home to many moons, and finally, a small terrestrial planet covered in various ices. The two innermost rocky planets were completed on the initial visit, so we resume our efforts starting with the icy outer world.

SCI Lt Herschel 23-Mar-2022 22:24:08
:: glances aside for a moment, also awkward. she didn't know what would happen. sobbing? rage? but not nothing- or nearly nothing :: Hannah: Uhh, well... I believe that it is best that I return to my duties on the bridge as soon as it is possible. But perhaps a... what is it called? Raincheck?
CSO Cdr Wright 23-Mar-2022 22:25:34
CO: The life sign is human. :: magnifies the image on the main viewer, looking for this distortion ::
SCI Lt Herschel 23-Mar-2022 22:25:59
Hannah: Oh.. I would also like to apologize for the... outburst from earlier. I was ahh- :: ahem :: on edge.
XO Cdr Kuari 23-Mar-2022 22:26:01

:: looks between D'bryn and Wright :: CEO/CSO: What sort of distortion?
CEO Lt D'bryn 23-Mar-2022 22:27:00
CSO: It's like a... I've never seen this kind of... I'm not even sure it's radiation. It's just this...field of something.
XO Cdr Kuari 23-Mar-2022 22:27:27
CEO: Field...? Organic, inorganic?
CO Cdor Harper 23-Mar-2022 22:27:42
CSO: Detailed scans, please, Commander.
Hannah Ziredac 23-Mar-2022 22:27:59
SCI: Oh. Yeah, no sweat. I was out of line, myself. As they say. Hence why we're no longer doing the drinks thing on the ol love ship Skylark.
CSO Cdr Wright 23-Mar-2022 22:28:01
CO: In progress.
CO Cdor Harper 23-Mar-2022 22:28:19
:: knows time is of the essence with a faint lifesign, but the risk is too great to her ship and crew to lower shields ::
SCI Lt Herschel 23-Mar-2022 22:30:17
Hannah: Trust me, I know very well the effects of going overboard on the drinks. One time, I was at a bar with my Klingon friend and- :: shakes head :: Hannah: Scheisse that's a story for another time.
CSO Cdr Wright 23-Mar-2022 22:30:41
:: looks in puzzlement at the results of the scans :: CO: She's right, Captain. There's some kind of... strange energy field around the ship. There's nothing similar in our database.
Hannah Ziredac 23-Mar-2022 22:31:13
SCI: I too have had my fair share of run-ins with a Klingon bartender. They do not bend on legal drinking age.
XO Cdr Kuari 23-Mar-2022 22:31:33
CSO: Scan for a similar energy within sensor range?
CSO Cdr Wright 23-Mar-2022 22:31:47

SCI Lt Herschel 23-Mar-2022 22:32:36
:: blinks multiple times :: Hannah: My story was along the lines of how combing bloodwine and Andorian ale is a terrible idea-
XO Cdr Kuari 23-Mar-2022 22:32:40
:: peers over at D'bryn with a frown, unhappy at the news ::
CO Cdor Harper 23-Mar-2022 22:33:12
:: frowns, that complicating a potential rescue :: CEO: What about shuttlecraft?
CSO Cdr Wright 23-Mar-2022 22:33:33
XO: The phenomenon appears to be localized, Commander. What's more, it seems... too perfect to be natural.
XO Cdr Kuari 23-Mar-2022 22:33:55
CSO: We could probe it, see how it interacts, to see if a shuttle would be safe.
CMO LCdr Acacia 23-Mar-2022 22:34:04
:: frowns at the bridge feed, shaking her head ::
CEO Lt D'bryn 23-Mar-2022 22:34:18
CO: Shuttlecraft... :: looks at calculations :: I don't see any reason a shuttle couldn't make it through just fine. But yeah, maybe a probe to be sure?
CSO Cdr Wright 23-Mar-2022 22:34:20
XO: I was thinking the same thing, Commander. I'll ready a probe.
CEO Lt D'bryn 23-Mar-2022 22:34:31
CO: But we have that faint lifesign. Do we have time to probe it?
CO Cdor Harper 23-Mar-2022 22:35:00
CO: General Order 12, Lieutenant. It is for the safety of this crew that we take the time.
All: Good thinking on the probe.
XO Cdr Kuari 23-Mar-2022 22:35:39
:: nods ::
CEO Lt D'bryn 23-Mar-2022 22:35:51

:: deploys the probe ::
Hannah Ziredac 23-Mar-2022 22:37:36
:: is taken aback :: SCI: Mixing bloodwine and ale? Why not squirt some mustard and toothpaste in it while you're at it?
CEO Lt D'bryn 23-Mar-2022 22:39:23
ACTION: The probe approaches the field, sending back data that would suggest no danger or impedance to shuttlecraft.
SCI Lt Herschel 23-Mar-2022 22:39:30
:: nods, not having anything to add about that :: Hannah: That's... fair.
CO Cdor Harper 23-Mar-2022 22:39:36
:: watches the strangely undamaged ship and worries while she waits for the results ::
CSO Cdr Wright 23-Mar-2022 22:40:21
CO: The probe telemetry is all nominal; all signs indicate that there should be no issue with sending a shuttle.

:: hears the orders and begins picking staff to go immediately ::
CSO Cdr Wright 23-Mar-2022 22:42:58
CO: I would advise that the team wear environmental suits, in case of pathogens.
CEO Lt D'bryn 23-Mar-2022 22:43:57
CO: Requesting to accompany the teams, Captain. I know the ship, and might be able to find out what's wrong with her if there's anything mechanical.
CO Cdor Harper 23-Mar-2022 22:44:06
CSO: Agreed. Interface with their computer as well, and see if you can find any relevant logs.
XO Cdr Kuari 23-Mar-2022 22:44:23

:: sends a message down to the shuttlebay to have environment suits ready for the away team ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 23-Mar-2022 22:46:26

CO Cdor Harper 23-Mar-2022 22:47:14
:: nods again to Zoë to answer her 'thanks' and then turns forward again ::
SCI Lt Herschel 23-Mar-2022 22:47:32
Hannah: It was a case of being 23 and stupid.

SCI Lt Herschel 23-Mar-2022 22:51:09
