Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
A few days after Commander Kuari assumed command of Meridian with her interim crew, that ship is in far better condition than when we found her adrift with her crew slaughtered by the mysterious Sarreon. Acting on intelligence provided by the sole survivor of that attack, Lt. Commander Leirone, our flotilla is in slipstream en route to an incredibly remote star system on the absolute edge of the galaxy. There, we hope to examine the remnants of a failed invasion of the Milky Way by the extragalactic civilization known as The Fall, in order to learn more about how to stop Sarreon.

CO Cdor Harper 04-May-2022 21:33:14
AXO: Send a message to the fleet to spread out around the orbit of this debris field, so that we can cover it more quickly. Search for any debris of significant size or complexity.
AXO Cdr Wright 04-May-2022 21:33:50
:: sends said message, then begins using the computer to crunch some numbers ::
MNAV Lt Navarro 04-May-2022 21:36:07
MCO: Message from Atlantis, capitana. Orders are to spread out around the entire orbit and scan for significant debris.
MTAC 1Lt Ammora 04-May-2022 21:36:33
MCO: These readings are... I don't know... it's not like anything I've seen. The Federation signatures I'm seeing don't actually exist... I don't know what I'm looking at. The readings are of a massive nature. These ships are... Commander, I don't know what these readings are telling me.

MCO: Aye. :: nods and starts running scans ::
:: looks at structural integrity ::
:: blinks ::
AXO Cdr Wright 04-May-2022 21:44:30
CO: From a materials standpoint, a significant portion of the debris is... exotic. Alloys that should be impossible. Extremely heavy elements that should not exist stably.
MTAC 1Lt Ammora 04-May-2022 21:44:38
MEO: Commander Leirone, can you confirm something for me, please?
MEO LCdr Leirone 04-May-2022 21:45:24
MTAC: What's up, Lieutenant?
CO Cdor Harper 04-May-2022 21:45:37
AXO: Can we safely bring samples aboard?
MTAC 1Lt Ammora 04-May-2022 21:46:47
MEO: There's piece of debris at bearing 3-4-9, mark 1-0-3. The hull looks like it destroyed outward. Can you confirm that the shrapnel came from the inside?
MCO Cdr Kuari 04-May-2022 21:46:54
:: thinks to herself, at least she has Atlantis as technically still her superior to fall back on, perking an ear towards Ammora ::
AXO Cdr Wright 04-May-2022 21:47:10
CO: There are also remnants of spatial anomalies that could have been caused by... I don't know... some kind of tearing of space-time? And unknown whether samples could be safely contained, Captain. This material is entirely novel.
MEO LCdr Leirone 04-May-2022 21:47:29
MTAC: Sure thing. :: performs a scan at that bearing/mark :: Whoa.
CMO LCdr Acacia 04-May-2022 21:48:18
:: listens intently to the bridge chatter, intrigued ::
MEO LCdr Leirone 04-May-2022 21:48:37
MTAC: Something tore through the interior like greased lightning. Just... Wow, just look at the tearing at those bulkheads. If those are bulkheads.
MTAC 1Lt Ammora 04-May-2022 21:49:04
MEO: I can't believe I'm saying this again... I don't know what I'm looking at.
CO Cdor Harper 04-May-2022 21:49:21
:: taps on her chin with a finger :: AXO: There will be time for that later, then. In the meantime, get everything you can while we search. Understanding of such materials could lead to jumps in science and engineering.
MEO LCdr Leirone 04-May-2022 21:49:55

MTAC: Something?
MTAC 1Lt Ammora 04-May-2022 21:52:36
MCO: I can't tell if it's a ship. But there's a large mass in the center of the debris field. 2-4-1, mark 3-9.
MCO Cdr Kuari 04-May-2022 21:53:00
MTAC: Active? Energy readings?
MTAC 1Lt Ammora 04-May-2022 21:53:28

:: notes that Atlantis is about to enter the field, so he pays attention to watch the show ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 04-May-2022 22:21:51
:: puts her paperwork away to watch the viewer, her attention captured ::
MEO LCdr Leirone 04-May-2022 22:21:57
:: it dawns on him :: MCO: I know where I've seen something like that.
CO Cdor Harper 04-May-2022 22:22:18
:: leans over to Emily :: CMO: It's a longshot, but do you... sense anything?
MEO LCdr Leirone 04-May-2022 22:22:27
MCO: Sarreon generated something similar around the Meridian. Stopped anyone from transporting in or out. We couldn't even get a shuttle through it.
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 04-May-2022 22:22:51
:: breathes evenly and takes it slow as they approach the Meridian and the debris field grows more dense ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 04-May-2022 22:23:38
:: takes a sharp breath and shakes her head :: CO: Nothing alive far as I can feel..
MEO LCdr Leirone 04-May-2022 22:24:10
MTAC: Lieutenant, any luck on the weapons systems? I still can't find those.
CO Cdor Harper 04-May-2022 22:24:41
:: sighs, she knew it was a longshot, after all ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 04-May-2022 22:24:59
:: wishes she could be more helpful, but just gives a shrug ::
AXO Cdr Wright 04-May-2022 22:25:46
:: when she heard Kate say "Longshot," couldn't help but think of the planet they'd given the same name years ago ::
MTAC 1Lt Ammora 04-May-2022 22:26:15
:: continues to search :: MEO: I see residual systems that interface... but nothing specific. That thing is massive.
MCO Cdr Kuari 04-May-2022 22:26:30
:: considers, having weighed presented options :: MTAC: Mr. Ammora, launch a probe as Leirone has suggested.
MTAC 1Lt Ammora 04-May-2022 22:26:45
:: nods :: MCO: Yes, ma'am.
:: launches probe as instructed ::
CO Cdor Harper 04-May-2022 22:28:27
:: observes Jester's flight through the debris with some envy that she's not the one at the helm flying ::
MEO LCdr Leirone 04-May-2022 22:28:29
:: is able to get scant readings of the deflector system :: MCO: It's definitely particulate in nature. No idea what it's comprised of, but it looks like it's a particle field that can be manipulated to distort and shield against a range of attacks or infiltrations. The particulate nature might explain why we couldn't get a shuttle out when Sarreon was attacking, but Atlantis could get a shuttle in after he was gone. The field dissipated so he could lure the shuttles in.
ACTION> Once the probe is in position, it begins to get more readings of the ship's defensive systems, transmitting them back to the Meridian's tactical console.
MTAC 1Lt Ammora 04-May-2022 22:31:09
:: taps his console :: It's a construct...
MEO LCdr Leirone 04-May-2022 22:31:19
ACTION> The particle generator is as Leirone guessed, but its system suggests that it was once controlled by artificial intelligence.
MTAC 1Lt Ammora 04-May-2022 22:31:54
MEO: It's based on a full frontal assault.
MCO Cdr Kuari 04-May-2022 22:32:32
:: frowns :: MEO: Send your readings to Atlantis for consideration. This is certainly technology we need to be more familiar with.
MTAC 1Lt Ammora 04-May-2022 22:32:48
:: continues his assessment ::
Self: Triangulation
MEO LCdr Leirone 04-May-2022 22:33:17
MCO: Aye, Captain. I'll compile mine with Lieutenant Ammora's and we'll send it over.
MTAC 1Lt Ammora 04-May-2022 22:33:47
MCO/MEO: Wait...
MNAV Lt Navarro 04-May-2022 22:33:58
::smiles as Atlantis approaches, nodding at Jester's precise navigation of the debris field, even with the larger ship ::
MEO LCdr Leirone 04-May-2022 22:34:02
MTAC: What's up, Lieutenant?
MCO Cdr Kuari 04-May-2022 22:34:04
:: opens her mouth to speak, then waits for Ammora to explain ::
MMO Lt Straynj 04-May-2022 22:34:45
:: listens, anxious ::
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 04-May-2022 22:34:51
:: makes her final approach to Meridian at one quarter impulse ::
MTAC 1Lt Ammora 04-May-2022 22:35:23
MCO/MEO: Two points. The readings I'm seeing and what Commander Leirone said leads me to believe that it needs multiple points to breach the shield. Or at least the perimeter.
CO Cdor Harper 04-May-2022 22:35:53
NAV2: Well-flown, Jester.
:: she takes in the sight on the main viewer, shaking her head in disbelief that this is a ship and not a starbase :: AXO: I... am certain that Meridian already has lots of scan data, but see what you can get.
NAV2 Cpt Suzuki 04-May-2022 22:36:38
:: turns and gives Firefly a little salute ::
MEO LCdr Leirone 04-May-2022 22:36:39
MTAC: As in, numerous ships have to hit it at once to even make a dent?
:: stomach sinks ::
AXO Cdr Wright 04-May-2022 22:37:08
:: nods wordlessly and begins scanning, trying not to be intimidated by the overwhelming size of it ::
CO Cdor Harper 04-May-2022 22:37:15
CTO: Captain Grey, analyze its weaponry and defense systems.
MTAC 1Lt Ammora 04-May-2022 22:37:18
MEO: Fighters, ships, whatever. We hit it in the same spot and it will buckle. Enough to... uh... transport through it.
MEO LCdr Leirone 04-May-2022 22:38:12
MTAC: Well. Good thing we have more than one ship, then.
CTO Cpt Grey 04-May-2022 22:38:40
CO: Yes ma'am. :: fingers flying over the analysis and watching for the results ::
MEO LCdr Leirone 04-May-2022 22:39:04
MTAC: I want to run simulations. You have enough data for us to create a holo-simulation, and test it out?
MCO Cdr Kuari 04-May-2022 22:39:22
MTAC: I wasn't considering attacking yet, just probing. Are you suggesting we need to send several probes for one to go through, or just provide information for if we need to transport?
MNAV Lt Navarro 04-May-2022 22:40:08
:: sends a message to Atlantis's helm complimenting the flight through the debris field ::
MTAC 1Lt Ammora 04-May-2022 22:40:42
MCO: It depends on what we want to do. Multiple probes, using Meridian and Atlantis, we can get the job done. But what do we want? If we open enough of a gap to scan, it'll be short. If we want prolonged research, we do the same thing but beam a team through it onto the ship itself.
MCO Cdr Kuari 04-May-2022 22:42:38
MTAC: I just wanted to see if a probe could tell us more, but if we need the coordination of several ships for one to be effective, we can do that.
CTO Cpt Grey 04-May-2022 22:43:23
CO: The scanners aren't coming back with much... Whatever this is made out of doesn't want to be scanned. :: looks up to Harper cautiously ::
CO Cdor Harper 04-May-2022 22:44:06
:: nods to Grey :: CTO: Message Lt. Ammora and see if they've made any progress with that on Meridian. No need to duplicate efforts.
CTO Cpt Grey 04-May-2022 22:44:59
:: nods, doing exactly that :: +MTAC+ The scans on that ship aren't coming back with anything. Are yours picking up anything?
MTAC 1Lt Ammora 04-May-2022 22:47:00
+CTO+ We're getting fragmented readings. What I assumed was a shielding issue was actually the particulates in the immediate orbit of the ship. We will have to get through the overall debris field if we want concrete information.
MEO LCdr Leirone 04-May-2022 22:49:40
MTAC: Is that probe pulling any more information, Lieutenant?
:: gets up and heads for the TAC console to look at it with Ammora ::
CO Cdor Harper 04-May-2022 22:52:59
:: overhears the comm :: CTO: Perhaps try linking the sensors of both ships to increase resolution via interferometry.
CTO Cpt Grey 04-May-2022 22:54:08
+MTAC+ Did you hear the Commodore's suggestion? :: frowns as she glances over the results :: +MTAC+ Let's link up and give joint scanning a go.
CMO LCdr Acacia 04-May-2022 22:57:20
:: watches with interest ::
CO Cdor Harper 04-May-2022 22:58:22
ACTION> Atlantis receives a subspace transmission from the Roland.
Hannah Ziredac 04-May-2022 22:59:00
+Atlantis+ Atlantis, this is Hannah Ziredac aboard the Roland. We've found Sarreon. Say again, we found the son of a bitch. Sending coordinates for the rendezvous. Smoke em if you got em, y'all. Let's end this.
MTAC 1Lt Ammora 04-May-2022 22:59:20
:: looks up, doing two things at once ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 04-May-2022 22:59:27
:: blinks ::
MTAC 1Lt Ammora 04-May-2022 22:59:42
+CTO+ Nothing conclusive on the probe scans.
CO Cdor Harper 04-May-2022 22:59:49
:: looks up as the message comes in, then nods :: +HZ+ Understood, Hannah. We will meet you there.
Hannah Ziredac 04-May-2022 23:00:20
+Atlantis+ Thanks, Kate. See you on the other side.
