Summary

The bridge is the command center fo the U.S.S. Valhalla and is where the Commanding Officer (CO) controls all ship operations and gathers mission sensitive information by utilizing the bridge officers who man the various Bridge Console Stations.

Additional Information

Location   - Deck 1

Description:

Each station is manned by a primary duty officer each shift with a secondary officer present who can take over the station in case of emergencies or assist/provide breaks for the primary officer.

Command Area

The Captains Chair (1) is located in the center of the bridge and has a clear view of most other stations. Information displays built into the arm of the Captain's chair provide critical real-time information on the ship's systems. The Executive Officer's chair (2) is located to the right of the Captain's Chair and functions in an identical fashion. Between the Captain and Executive Officer is a fold-out console built into the structure that provides a more detailed readout on ships systems and may also be used by the Captain or the Executive Officer to take over operational command of the ship and its systems should the need arise. The Mission Advisor/VIP seat (3) is located to the left of the Captain and is used by Mission Specialists who may be advising the Captain on aspects of a mission or by VIPs who are observing Bridge operations. This seat does not have the ability to control r access ships functions.

Marine Combat Information Center (CIC) (9)

The CIC is accessed through a door aft of the Command Area. This room is used to coordinate and monitor Marine units during mission operations. It is generally restricted to the Marine command staff, CIC personnel and the ship's Captain, Executive Officer, Strategic Operations Officer, Chief Tactical Officer, and Chief Intelligence Officer.

Flight Ops and Engineering Well

Directly to the front of, and slightly below the Command area, is the joint Flight Operations (13) and Engineering (14) console. From the Flight Operations station, the ship's Flight Control Officer (FCO) can handle all operations necessary to pilot the ship. The Engineering console allows the ships Chief Engineer (or other engineers) to access and control all aspects of the ships engines from the bridge. The Flight Operations Console and Engineering Console are located side by side since the two work very closely together.

Information systems

The Main View Screen (7) and the ships Holo-Communication system (4) are located directly in front of the Flight Ops and Engineering Well and raised slightly in order to provide an unobstructed view from the Command Area.

The ships Master Systems Display (8) is centered on the back wall of the bridge. This dedicated display provides any officer with a real-time, interactive status update of any system on the ship. It's attached console allows certain routine functions to be quickly handled using the MSD.

Sciences and Medical

The Science and Medical Suite (11) is located on the starboard side of the bridge and consists of three seated stations located along the wall, Science 2 (center) and two multi-use stations. The main Science Station (Science 1) is located at the front of the suite facing the Main View Screen. The two multi-use stations which flank Science 2 can be configured to fulfill a wide range of scientific needs.

The Science 2 Station is usually manned by the Assistant Science Officer or the second highest ranking Science Officer on the Bridge. It is a fully programmable, multi-mission console.
 
Science 1, which is the primary science console is manned by the Chief Science Officer or the highest ranking Science Officer present on the Bridge and has priority access to flight control, ops, ships computer, sensors, tactical, science, navigational, and communications systems.

Science 1 & 2 can work in tandem, however security links and all other non-science related data is withheld from Science II.

Operations Suite

The Operations Suite or Ops (10) is dedicated to controlling all of the starship's sensor and computer equipment. This console ultimately ties in all shipboard systems, enabling the Operations Officer (OPS) to coordinate mission pertinent scientific data that could not have been accessed by the other bridge consoles. It is located on the port side of the bridge and consists of three seated stations located along the wall, Ops 2 (center) and two multi-use stations. The Main Operations station "Ops" or Ops 1 is located at the front of the Suite facing the Main View Screen.

The two multi-use stations which flank Ops 2 can be configured to fulfill a wide range of mission-specific needs.

The Ops 2 Station is usually manned by the Assistant Operations Officer or the second highest ranking Operations Officer on the Bridge. It is a fully programmable, multi-mission console.

Ops 1, which is the primary operations console is manned by the Chief Operations Officer or the highest ranking Operations Officer present on the Bridge. Ops 1 has priority access to flight control, computer, sensor, tactical, science, navigational, environmental, life support, damage control, transporter and communications systems.

Operations 1 & 2 can work in tandem. Due to the vast amount of information and control over ships systems, access to Ops 1 and 2 is restricted to Beta-Two security clearance or higher.

Tactical Station

The Tactical Station (15) is located directly behind the Captains Chair and faces forward. From this station, the ship's Chief Tactical Officer, or highest ranking Tactical Officer on the bridge, can monitor and control the ship's offensive and defensive arsenal.

This station also has access to the ships sensors, sensor probes, message buoys, tractor beams, ship's communication and can be used to deploy Security teams to various areas of the ship in the event of an emergency or if the ship is boarded by intruders.

This station is generally manned by a single Tactical / Security Officer, but can be manned by two should the situation dictate. Due to the sensitive nature of the systems controlled by this station a Beta-Two security clearance or higher is required to access the controls.

Other Locations

(12) - Access to Briefing Room/Lounge and Escape Pods.

(6) - Turbolifts.

(5) - To Captains Ready Room.

Notes

The 2 escape pods located near the lounge/briefing room are reserved for the top four officers in the chain of command and bridge personnel because they are the last to leave the ship.

If the ship is abandoned, the top four officers in the chain of command will wait until everyone else is off the ship, potentially arm the auto-destruct, and only then leave in the two escape pods.

Owen stepped out of the turbo lift onto the Bridge and strode the few steps over to the tactical station. As he passed the door leading to the Marine Command Information Center he noted the Marine guard standing there. That was something he was definitely going to have to get used to. The young Ensign currently manning the station looked up as Owen approached, "Good afternoon Lieutenant Murtaugh."

Owen nodded at the other tactical officer, "Anything to report?"

"We have been running diagnostics on ships weapons and defensive systems for most of Alpha shift. We have a scheduled prisoner transfer from Unity to the Valhalla. Per the Captain's orders, the prisoner is to be housed on deck four, senior officers quarters. Arrangements have been made and we are just waiting for confirmation from the station at this point. That is all we have right now." the Ensign said.

Owen nodded, "Very well Ensign. You are relieved."

"Sir." the Ensign said. After a moment's hesitation, he continued,"I could stay sir and assist if you need."

Owen smiled slightly before saying, "No Ensign. I think I have it covered. You go and enjoy your off-duty time. I am sure there will be plenty of extra work for you once we get underway."

"Yes sir." the Ensign said and then turned and walked over to the turbo-lift. Owen watched as the young man left the bridge, remembering his days as a junior officer and of trying to impress the senior officers. Turning his attention back to the tactical station he read through the various reports from Gamma and Alpha shifts. Next, he looked over the arrangements which had been made for their special prisoner. They seemed to be more than adequate so he moved on to other things. "Computer. Bring up engagement between U.S.S. Hawk and unidentified Consortium vessel." the computer beeped and moments later the requested file came up on the screen. "Play." said Owen who stared at the screen intently. Maybe he could find something which would be useful in the next meeting with that ship.

Lieutenant Owen Murtaugh

Owen had just finished watching the tactical recording of the battle between the U.S.S. Hawk and the Consortium vessel for the fourth time and was preparing to start it again when he heard the doors to the turbo lift slide open. He glanced over to see who was entering the bridge and saw that it was the Captain. He stood up somewhat straighter and nodded in the Captain's direction,  "Good afternoon sir." The two men had served together on the Hawk during that ship's last mission and had gotten to know each other somewhat. He had been surprised and honored when Captain Harvath had specifically asked for Owen to be assigned to the Valhalla.

(https://s5.postimg.org/wtl2c2p4n/OwenMurtaugh_Thumb.jpg)

Captain Scot Harvath

Scot looked over and nodded in return then started walking over to the tactical station. As he passed the marine combat information center, the enlisted marine guarding the door snapped to attention and saluted. "Sir." was all he said, rather loudly. Scot jumped slightly, 'I am never going to used to that.' he thought, then looked at the guard, "As you were Private."

"Good afternoon Lieutenant Murtaugh? What do you have going on here?" he said as he stopped next to Owen and looked down at the console.

Owen reached down and restarted the replay and let it run. "Well sir, I have been studying our run in with that Consortium ship, trying to get a feel for the tactics they used." he pointed at the screen as if to emphasize what he was saying. "I haven't seen anything even loosely resembling standard tactics used by Starfleet, which is surprising since you would expect to see at least some variation on the standard tactics if the ship is crewed, at least in part, by rogue Starfleet personnel. They make absolutely no evasive maneuvers, there are no variations to their attacks, just head on direct passes, very aggressive, almost reckless. The attack was reminiscent of the kind of attacks used by the Jem'Hedar during the war. And if you watch here," Owen pointed to the screen again which was showing a hit on the Consortium vessel by one of the Hawk's phasers. The phaser energy seemed to disperse across the other vessels hull and then dissipate "that was a hit on their hull that resulted in no significant damage, at least none that our sensors could detect. The energy was spread over a wide area, but they weren't using shields. It would appear that they have hull armor similar to our own ablative armor, but more advanced. Their weapons systems are similar to disrupters, but again, more advanced. I have no theory at this point as to why our sensors had such a hard time locking onto them. Obviously a type of masking system that we haven't seen." Owen let the video finish running and waited for Scot to think about what had just been said.

Scot waited for the video to finish and then looked around the bridge while he thought, 'How the hell did they manage to build that thing?' Advanced ablative armor, stealth technology, neither were completely alien concepts, the Valhalla had both systems installed, but the Consortium vessel had ablative armor which apparently far surpassed that used by most Starfleet vessels and a stealth system very much like the Valhalla's own system, which they shouldn't have, especially since the system was still classified and only recently installed on a handful of ships for field testing. 'How far does the Consortium infiltration of Starfleet go?'

"Well, that is more than we had to go on before. Keep at it. See if you can find a way to defeat their sensor mask. Use our system as a base and bring in the science and engineering departments if you have to." seeing the look of confusion on Owens face Scot smiled, "I will make the file available to you since you obviously haven't read over your briefing materials. What is your overall analysis as to their threat to us?"

"Well sir, going off of what information we have, and considering that our weapon systems are being supplemented with pulse phaser cannons and pulse fire torpedo launchers, I would say we are fairly evenly matched, again, going off of what we know. That ship far outclassed the Hawk, but the Valhalla was built with combat in mind. We are matched pretty evenly in speed and we may have an advantage in firepower, but we likely haven't seen all of that ships capabilities. Sorry, at best I see another engagement as a fifty-fifty affair. There are just too many unknowns." Owen said rather bluntly.

"Okay. Well, we have a little time yet to try and swing those odds a bit more in our favor. Keep on top of it. Any ideas are worth at least exploring." Scot looked towards the door to his Ready Room and then glanced at the Marine guard standing nearby. Looking back at Owen he asked quietly, "Will he do that thing again when I walk by?"

Owen grinned upon hearing that question, "Most definitely." seeing the pained expression on Scot's face he chuckled and said, "You can't blame him, proper protocol is drilled into them. At this point, it is probably part of his DNA. Besides, you know you love it."

Scot gave Owen an unamused look then sighed and turned away. As he started towards his Ready Room he saw that the guard was watching him approach. Before the Marine could move, Scot looked at him, nodded in recognition, and said, "As you were Private." As he entered the Ready Room he said loudly, "Lieutenant Murtaugh, you have the Bridge." then disappeared inside.

<<Captain's Ready Room>> (http://startrek.lostworldssff.com/index.php?topic=2070.msg45369#msg45369)

"Yes sir. I have the Bridge."

Scot emerged from his Ready Room and crossed the Bridge, heading towards the briefing room. As he walked he looked around at the various bridge stations. At the moment the stations were manned by junior bridge officers since the ship was still moored at Starbase Unity. Most them seemed too young, having joined Starfleet after the Dominion War. Scot found himself wondering how they would handle the upcoming mission. 'Well, we will see soon enough.' he thought to himself, 'But hopefully not too soon.'

As he reached the door to the briefing room Scot called over his shoulder, "Lieutenant Murtaugh, you're with me."

(https://s5.postimg.org/sxgx7kiwn/currantonye1427812677986.jpg)
"Yes, sir. Right behind you." came the reply from Owen. After handing over control of the Tactical station to another officer, Owen followed the Captain into the briefing room.

Etana stepped out of the turbolift, onto the Bridge, then walked over to the Operations station. After looking over the various system status displays he picked up a PADD and headed to the briefing room door. He paused for a moment and straightened his uniform top, then entered.

Ryn entered the bridge. It was just a hop, skip and a jump from the briefing room, but still. Looking around, she could see the various duty officers at their consoles. Placing her arms behind her back, she walked forward and spoke getting some of their attention, "Anything to report? We are leaving for departure soon. Are all decks ready?"

She walked a few steps from the door into the center of the bridge near her XO chair while looking around. In the back of her mind, she also read from her report that the new chief of ops had yet to report in. She'd have to get in touch with her when she can. They had to leave soon.

Scot stepped through the briefing room door and stepped onto the Bridge. He walked towards the door to the turbo lift and paused before entering. He looked back at Camryn and said, "Commander, you have the Bridge. I will be at the Elysian Fields with our guest." He then stepped into the turbo lift. "Deck five."

Etana stepped out of the Briefing Room just as the Commander Sheppard asked for a status report. He quickly walked the few steps to the Operations Suite and stepped up to the main station. After touching a few controls and scanning through the various displays he said, "Ship systems are online and operating normally. The last of the crew have reported aboard. Most engineering teams from the station have completed their work and departed the ship."

Isla groaned as she hurried through the hallways.  How had she missed her alarm again?  She had set it so she would make it to the bridge in an orderly fashion.  the last thing she needed was to be late on her first day and be transferred yet again.  Yes, she didn't get along with people real well, but that didn't mean she wanted to be transferred to every ship the Starfleet had.  She blew out a breath, her red bangs falling into her eyes.

Isla slowed her pace just before she reached the bridge, taking just a couple of seconds to smooth her hair back into place and make sure her uniform was in order.  Once she was sure she was in tack she stepped onto the bridge, looking for someone in charge.  She soon spotted a woman who should be able to help.  "Ma'am?" she asked, stepping up to Ryn.  "I am Isla McAines.  I apologize for being a bit tardy."

Ryn nodded at the captain just as she was about to say something when he left the bridge. She exhaled and turned as Etana spoke. She replied, "Good. Lets-"

She didn't finish her sentence when another officer entered the bridge and reported in. Ryn stared at her and nodded while hiding a migraine that suddenly started creeping across her head, "Alright commander. Take your position in the ops section. We are about to get underway."

Ryn was a pretty straight forward person. She expects people to do the job they are assigned to. No apologies are necessary. Facing the viewscreen, she spoke, "Helm-" Ryn paused thinking back on her reports and remembered that they weren't leaving yet till tomorrow. She exhaled responding, "Never mind. Stand by."

She took her seat at the XO chair and continued to monitor the stations.

Isla nodded.  "Yes ma’am."  The red head turned and moved toward ops.  She really needed to take time and look at her computer.   Maybe even set a couple different alarms to be on the safe side.  She didn’t want to be late again.

Etana looked at Commander McAines as she approached the Operations area, "Commander, welcome aboard. All systems are operating normally." He then stepped aside and moved to the secondary operations station, leaving the primary station open for Commander McAines.

<<Three Minutes Later>>

Marine Captain Torino stepped out of the turbo lift and paused. He glanced at the Marine guarding the entrance to the Marine Combat Information Center and scowled at him. The young man, who had been standing in a more relaxed stance, immediately stood up straighter and placed both hands behind his back. Satisfied, Captain Torino made his way over to Commander Sheppard. Stopping next to her, he looked around the bridge while he said, "We need to coordinate the areas of security responsibility between my Marines and the ship's security personnel." He then stood there, impatiently as he continued to look around the bridge.

Isla nodded.  "Thank you," she smiled at Etana.  At least that part was still going according to plan.   What a way to start on a new ship.  She had been bounced to so many that she was just tired and wanted to at least spend a bit of time on the same ship.  Isla slid into the vacated chair, looking at all the screens to see for herself that everything was normal.

Ryn stopped what she was doing and looked up as the marine captain walked up to her saying something about doing the security stuff. Standing up from her seat to her feet while placing her arms behind her back, she responded noting his impatience, "Understood Captain. Shall we discuss it here or elsewhere?"

Her El Aurian side tended toward allowing certain respects where a commanding officer has his or her preference of where to talk. Rank usually does not apply in this case because she outranked him a little, but it doesn't matter. The man was clearly needing to talk to him about something and she was willing to step into his 'office' within the ship. She still wasn't ready to use her own XO office that she kept nicely closed and shut.

{Marine Captain Torino}

"If you prefer we could step into the briefing room," he said, his tone of voice hinting that he felt as though he was being put out. He continued to look around the bridge as he waited.

Ryn nodded with a small sigh. Of course, this was something she should have suggested. She had a lot on her mind, but she could make the time for another crewmember. She offered her arm toward the briefing room as she responded leading the way, "Let's step into the briefing room then. We'll talk there privately."

Looking around the bridge as she followed his head movements for a bit, Ryn spoke seeing Murtaugh on his console, "Lieutenant Murtaugh. Can you come step into the briefing room for a moment. We need to discuss something briefly with Captain Torino regarding the coordination of security procedures between security and marines."

It was more direct than she liked, but it was one of those important moments that she had to keep professional about around the marine captain. She listened to his words and felt him reasonable with his request. They needed to go over some things.

Turning to the new crewmember at the ops with the higher rank of commander, Ryn paused trying to remember her name. She spoke, "Commander McAines, you have the bridge for the moment. And, welcome onboard." She added realizing that she hadn't welcomed her onboard yet. It always slips her mind. The half Klingon wasn't always this cold. She was punctual and a bit strict with protocol, but not always this cold. The listener part of her wants to talk with the new commander a bit more to make sure she is at more ease with her position.

Isla turned at Ryn's voice, pasting a smile on her face.  "Yes ma'am and thank you."  She hoped maybe this time she would be able to stay on a ship for more then a week.  She turned back to the controls, wanting to make sure she got herself familiar with the layout of the ship.  Now, this was where she felt at home.

From his position at the secondary operation station, Etana saw that there was a warning flashing in the engineering window. Reaching over he selected the engineering window, maximizing it. The display showed that there was a drop in engine power and the sensors had gone offline. The drop in power and loss of sensors coincided with a test of the System Masking System taking place in Engineering.

"Excuse me, sir," he said to Commander McAines. "I am showing a loss in power and sensors have gone offline. It happened just as Engineering started a test on the System Masking System."

Isla turned as Etana spoke.  She spun back around, pulling up the screen that he had just mentioned.  He was right.  Power was dropping quickly.  She frowned a bit.  "That might not be good.  I'm thinking a call down to Engineering is in order."  Just what kind of tests were they performing and why had it knocked them off line?

Etana nodded, "I agree. It should have been a fairly straightforward test. Perhaps the system wasn't calibrated properly?" He thought about it briefly and then frowned, "Sabotage maybe? Diagnostics had shown that systems were operating normally when they were run overnight on Gamma shift."

Isla frowned a bit.  It could be any number of things.  "I hope and pray that someone just forgot to calibrate the system correctly, but I don't think we should rule anything out."  Who would want to sabotage the ship if that was truly what had happened?

"Even though I am sure Commander Huxley would report in if he felt the situation to be critical, it would probably be a good idea to call down to Engineering, just in case," Etana said as he watched the display panel.

Isla nodded.  She was thinking the same thing.  She shifted her seat just enough to get to where she could place the call.  "Engineering,  this is Commander McAines on the bridge.  Is all well there?  We are showing some odd readings."

That seemed odd to Isla.  She wondered what would be sending the sensors haywire.  Well it sounded like they had things under control at least.  "Thank you, Commander Huxley.  Let us know if you need anything of us."

Ryn entered the bridge. A slight exhale that was inaudible escaped her breath before she approached the center of the bridge and spoke to the commander, "Commander McAines, report. Anything that requires my attention?"

She was quick and direct with her question as she needed to know almost everything that was going on. Being part El Aurian, Ryn seemed to be always aware. Almost aware of something that is happening in the ship. It's part of her gut feeling but mostly her senses that she is aware of.

Isla looked over her shoulder as Ryn stepped up to her.  "Not now ma'am.  Engines are back online and working properly."  Every thing else seemed to be in order.

"And this is the bridge." Paddy concluded while finally leading Rebecca to the nerve center of the ship. He had in fact gotten lost twice since they had reconfigured the passage ways slightly from the Hawk, not too much but enough to confuse the old man. There was no beating around the bush with him, straight to the point as usual on seeing those on deck. "Ryn, Isla I'd like you to meet my new intern, Cadet Rebecca Bremer; lass this on my right is Lieutenant Commander Camryn Sheppard our first officer and the lovable red head is Lieutenant Commander Isla McAines our Operations officer. Captain Harvath I'm sure will be here shortly."

Rebecca followed the doctor onto the bridge and looked around with a nervous excitement. It was much bigger than she had expected. She took a couple of steps and then stopped, hovering near the turbo lift doors. "Commander Sheppard, I am happy to be aboard and look forward to this assignment," she said. Looking over towards Lieutenant Commander Isla she nodded and said, "Good afternoon Commander."

Isla listened to Kasey, thinking if she knew of anyone who could help.  If she thought of anyone she would be sure to send them down his way.  She turned though as a new voice spoke, smiling when she saw Paddy.  He was one person that could make her smile.  "Hello Cadet Bremer.  It is a pleasure to meet you."

Ryn nodded at the commander. Nothing that requires her attention at the  moment. Putting her arms behind her back again, she looked at the viewscreen for a few moments till someone called her by her nickname behind her. She turned to the doors opening and nodded at Paddy. The chief of medical introduced the new cadet onboard the ship. Ryn responded respectfully, "Welcome onboard, Cadet. Enjoying your tour?" The commander offered a nod.

She wondered as she knew this cadet wll be here in an intern capacity to the CMO. It was in her notes somewhere that there will be at least one or two coming onboard. One would be a cadet fresh from the academy.

At this point all Paddy could do was enjoy the scenery. This would be the last time they would see this Station for quite a while if Scot's reputation remained intact, one of which was finding trouble where you least expect it, then a simply four month tour turns into a year. Fun times, that's how Paddy put it. "So where is his Lordship now?" They were mates, he could call the captain anything he likes, woe betide though anyone else who took that liberty.

Isla glanced at Ryn to answer that question.  She was still learning the ship and hadn't paid attention to where the captain had gone as she had been headed for her station.  Although she was sure Ryn would know.

Ryn looked at both as she realized all eyes were on her. For a minute she forgot that she was the XO. When it hit her, the commander sighed and muttered, "Oh right," clearing her throat, she exhaled, "Computer."

She waited for the confirming signal. Once it sounded, she responded, "Where is Captain Harvath?"

He is on Deck Four

Alright, Ryn thought to herself as she looked at the CMO and responded, "Do you want me to call him and let him know that you're looking for him? He should be on his way to the bridge right now."

Scot exited the turbo lift and stepped onto the bridge, colliding with a young woman who was standing in front of the doors. As he looked at her he noted that she wore the rank insignia of a Cadet. "Not the best place to stand Cadet," he said.

(https://s5.postimg.org/uoyi35buf/Rebecca_Bremer.png)

Rebecca came to attention as she blushed and stammered, "I am so sorry sir. I was trying to not be in the way."

(https://s5.postimg.org/wtl2c2p4n/Scot_Harvath.jpg)

Scot smiled, "At ease Cadet. Nothing to apologize for." he then walked over to the Captain's chair, nodding at Aldus, "Hey there doc." When he reached his chair, he sat down and looked around the bridge. "Commander Sheppard, what is the ship's status?" he then pressed the control panel on the arm of his chair, seconds later the command panel, with its various readouts, rose from the console between the Captain and Executive Officer's chairs. He glanced at it and then looked towards his Executive Officer.

"No need lass, as you can see old adages apply well even in our time." He was of course referring to the line 'speak of the devil', when he addressed the XO. At least Rebecca got the message quite well when the man arrived. That should keep her on her toes in future, of course that would apply to Aldus himself as well. The last thing the girl will want to have on her personal file was that she was constantly getting under foot of the senior staff.

"Scot, you look drained. The meeting with Roxanne didn't go as planned, or is it simply the weariness I know you're feeling from the great weight of all this?" He panned both hands around him, taking in a virtual image in his mind of this new ship. He couldn't but to help give his assistant a wink, she'd pick up soon enough.

Ryn nodded at the captain and responded, "She's ready to get underway. We might need to check a few systems, but we should be good."

She looked around the bridge before looking at the viewscreen. There was something about the ship that told her that it was ready to go, so they needed to get going soon.

Ryn pondered a bit before on what was said over the intercom and responded, "Engineering. About an issue with the sensor masking system. They are working on the problem."

She recalled the previous message and wondered if she should go down there to check it out herself. She was operational before and knows something about engineering systems.

After hearing what Commander Sheppard had to say, Scot looked first towards the operations station and then stared at the viewscreen for several moments. After taking a deep breath he pressed the control panel, opening a channel to the engine room.

"Engine room. This is the Captain. Report. What is the status of the sensor masking system?"

He then looked back towards the viewscreen and gripped his arm rest.

Of course the man wouldn't lie to Paddy would he? Of course not, thus as they say pigs will fly. He leaned close to his Intern Rebecca to whisper. "Take note lass, see the fine beads of sweat on his brow, the way he rubs his temples. Two signs, mild stress and anxiety, plus I would be guessing well he has a headache coming on. Normally we'd simply dose him with a analgesic, though right now the last thing he needs is to feel sleepy. In my private office there is a cabinet, I've taken this off the replicator for good reason. Take my pass card, then shoot off down and retrieve a vial and syringe, the vial is orange, marked Mega-B complex." He pulled his card from the top pocket, some time later today he'd make a copy for the girl.

Etana smiled and then looked down at his console as it beeped, announcing that the diagnostic he had been running was complete. After studying the results he shook his head and rolled his eyes. Looking back towards Isla he quietly said, "Ma'am, I think I know what the problem is. Not only does it appear as though the team that installed the masking system didn't complete the calibration of the ship's sensors, diagnostics also show that too much power is being fed to masking system, resulting in a power spike which is interfering with our sensor systems. If engineering reduces the power flow to the masking system by, let's see, fifteen percent it should fix the problem. That is after we finish calibrating all of our sensors." If nothing else, it was a starting point. At the very least, Isla had something she could report to the Captain.

Isla turned at the beep, wondering what Etana was up to.  She raised a brow as he leaned closer to her and whispered his findings.  A soft groan escaped her lips.  "how under the sun did they miss that?" she whispered back, not believing what a mess this was.  She blew out a breath before glancing over her shoulder.  "Captain," she said respectfully.  "Etana has just brought to my attention what could be causing the problem with our masking system.  It seems that the calibration wasn't completed and that too much power is being fed to the systems.  If the power is reduced by about fifteen percent it should fix the problem after we finishing the calibration."

"Thank you, Commander McAines. Good work." said Scot, as he opened a channel to engineering once again.

"Engine room, Commander Huxley. Have your people try reducing power to the masking system by fifteen percent. Once the ship's sensors are re-calibrated I am told that the system should operate as intended." he paused for a moment and then continued. "Please acknowledge."

Rebecca suddenly realized that she had been daydreaming and that the doctor was standing there looking at her, holding out a pass card. Blushing slightly she said, "Sorry sir. I will be back shortly with what you need." She reached out and took the pass card and then hurried into the turbo lift. "Deck five, please," she said as the doors closed.

Storr stepped onto the bridge and stood there looking around, unsure of who it was he needed to report to. He had never been on the bridge of a starship before, so he wasn't entirely sure which station was which. The one thing that was obvious was that the Captain would be the one seated in the center seat. Stepping past an older man, who he assumed was the Chief Medical Officer since the man was wearing a lab coat, Storr approached the Captain and stopped a couple of paces away, standing at attention. "Excuse me, sir, I was sent by Captain Torino to co-ordinate joint security details with the tactical officer."


(https://s5.postimg.org/wtl2c2p4n/Scot_Harvath.jpg)

Scot looked up at the marine officer standing in front of him, "At ease Lieutenant. You are looking for Lieutenant Murtaugh." he said as he gestured to the tactical station behind him.

(https://s5.postimg.org/sxgx7kiwn/Owen_Murtaugh.jpg)

Owen had a confused look on his face as he nodded towards the Marine officer, "I thought we had resolved everything when Captain Torino came to the bridge earlier? Did I miss something?"

(https://s5.postimg.org/wradgq08n/Storr_Garlake.png)

Storr hesitated while he tried to think of a good response which would cover for the fact that Captain Torino wasn't the best officer and probably hadn't paid much attention during the previous meeting. "Nothing like that. As the company intelligence officer and the person who would likely oversee security from the Marine end he just wanted me to meet with you and go over the details."

(https://s5.postimg.org/sxgx7kiwn/Owen_Murtaugh.jpg)

"Ahhh, okay then," Owen said as he closed what he was working on and locked down the tactical station. "Where would you like to discuss this?"

(https://s5.postimg.org/wradgq08n/Storr_Garlake.png)

Storr thought about it for a moment, "I have work to do in the Combat Information Center, that would be as good a place as any." As he finished speaking he came to attention once again and then saluted Captain Harvath, "Sir." He then turned and walked towards a door located at the back of the bridge. As he approached he returned the salute from the marine guard standing outside the door and then entered the CIC. Owen followed closely behind.

While Aldus waited he took the valuable time to gather as much information as he could with the upcoming meeting of the ship and the next way point, which of course would involve the hand over of Roxanne. The ships CMO wasn't pleased about that, but naturally there was little to nothing he could do about it, other than the not so polite fifteen paragraphs he had written on a disc for Scot to use in the girl's defence if it came to that. Hopefully the powers that be had their brains switched on over this case.

With Rebecca's return, the old man's eyes lit up. She was a model of efficiency, he had to admit. "Thank you Lass, I'm sure the captain will be grateful." The sarcastic grin on his face said it all. "Captain, may I have your attention for a few moments please?" It could be in private of course, but Paddy's river didn't flow in that direction.

Keeping her arms behind her back, Ryn listened as the captain talked with Engineering. They needed to make sure they have a smooth ride out. This mission was important, especially for her. It was her first mission as the XO. She wanted to be sure everything would go smoothly. Turning to the doctor, she nodded at the old man before returning to her XO chair. Sitting down, she toggled her armrest to look over a few systems on her side to monitor.

Turning to the Captain, she noticed him talking with the CMO. Ryn would have to keep an eye out for the bridge to make sure nothing goes wrong. Hopefully the Engineering problem would be fixed, but she'll have to keep an eye on that. Turning to her armrest, the commander tapped a few icons on the screen and toggled the Engineering systems. Flipping through a few screens, she noted that all systems were functioning correctly. She spoke looking up, "All systems standing by, sir. Departure from station is ready, Captain."

If she had to, she would watch over the bridge while he talked with the doctor in private.

Making sure Rebecca had a box seat, Paddy made no fuss as to what he was about to do, taking the vial then filling the syringe with the clear yellowish liquid. "I'm going to make sure for your benefit and indeed the rest of the crew you are at the top of your game for the next twenty four hours Captain. This is a mega dose of B complex, something that your body is currently massively depleted of from your equally massive over working of yourself in the last few days." There were times the old man stated the obvious, but right now the crew needed to hear the same thing, for as he spoke he was assessing each and everyone of them. During the course of the next few hours they'd all get the same shot. "So be so kind as to roll up your sleeve lad so I can put this horse needle in the best vein you've got."

Scot looked up and smiled slightly. As he rolled up his sleeve he said, "Take your best shot." he then looked forward and said, "Helm, bring us about, full thrusters. Once we have reached the outer defense platform take us to warp." After a pause he continued, "How long to our destination?"

Lieutenant Keval responded almost immediately, "Four hours at warp five sir."

"Very well," said Scot. "Once we go to warp hold course and speed. Notify me when we are nearing the rendezvous location. I will be in my ready room. Commander Sheppard, you have the bridge."

Turning to Scott, Ryn remained seated at her chair. Looking at the doctor priming the needle, she exhaled with a sigh shaking her head as she tried remember a quote from one of the earlier chief medical doctors of the Federation. She couldn't remember exactly what he said. She nodded turning back to her station, "Yes Captain."

She was in charge of the bridge now. Watch out.

Spoken like a soldier, though the old man knew that they could take all the rough house you could dish out to them, yet a simple needle from the old days had the ability to turn many a marine pale. A quick swipe with a alcohol pad along the inside of Scot's arm, it took but an instant to find a suitable vein. "When and if you have to do this Rebecca, the median cubital vein is the best, though any will do. That one though will give you the quickest results." Paddy slid the point of the syringe in easily, discharging the yellowish liquid. A moment, a brief moment after Scot will feel a tremendous warmth starting from his head with a slight tingling. It'd last about five seconds. He pulled the syringe, wiped the injection site again, then applied a small round patch. "That will keep you going for another eight hours lad, after that I am ordering you to bed. That is not a request." This simple smile was bordering on sheer evil.

4 Hours after departure, Mission Day One

U.S.S. Valhalla Ship's Log

Quote
{Captain Scot Harvath}

It has been four hours since our departure from Starbase Unity and the journey so far has been uneventful. Commander Huxley and the engineering department are working to fix the compatibility problem with the sensor masking system, at present, however, this shouldn't hamper the mission. In a little less than an hour we will be rendezvousing with the freighter S.S. Timbuktu, at which point we will transfer our guest, Roxanne Dane to the freighter with a security detail for her journey to Deep Space Nine. It is my hope that the reports updating Starfleet to the situation in the Gamma Quadrant will bring reinforcements to help turn back the Consortium and it's influence.

It was only four hours in. Mission time on the stardate was running. Ryn was constantly on the alert scanning over the updated mission reports and status. They were good. So far. She exhaled shifting her weight on the seat. It was a long time for her to be seated nonstop for four hours, but she was used to it. A yawn nearly escaped her mouth, but the commander contained it when she turned suddenly toward Commander Aines over the operations section of the bridge.

Sitting up, Ryn inquired, "Ops, report?" It was just something for her to know. She was curious as to if they were there yet.

Isla hid a yawn behind her hand as she watched the screens.  So far it seemed the systems had sorted themselves out thanks to engineering so everything looked normal.  At least for the moment.  She blinked a bit though, hoping this trip was almost over.  She turned as Ryn spoke.  "All's good so far.  Seems we should be there in just shy of an hour," she answered.

Scot exited his ready room and walked over to the captain's chair and sat down. After looking around the bridge slowly he said, "What is our status?"

Ryn nodded responding, "Good."

She was about to roll her finger on the comm button when the captain walked into the bridge calling for a status report. Clasping her hand into a fist, she cracked her knuckle to massage it. Turning to Scott, she replied, "Almost there. ETA one hour." Ish, she thought to herself, or so.

Anyone who's Betazoid could probably read her mind, but as an El Aurian, Ryn's been doing a good job with her mental barrier to block anyone attempting to read her mind. El Aurians were telepatic. Sort of. Not exactly. Being part telepatic does have some advantages while there were other things that she couldn't do. However, for the things she couldn't do, she'd let her Klingon side bludgeon. They were good at that.

Ryn kept her calm and serious aura around her as she sat in her chair and observed the captain for a brief few moments before looking around the bridge. Soon, they were almost there. Soon. She could almost taste the action. It was coming. Her bludgeon side was more than ready.

 Quite nervously Roxy was led to the bridge to await the transfer, she had good reason to feel the way she did. In the short time she had been aboard the Valhalla she had been given a few liberties, one of those being a short spell in the ships gym. It was possibly a mistake, for within minutes she broke the treadmill, embarrassed some Marines when she asked for more weights when there was none, the final straw being breaking yet another machine, the resistance pulleys. That was earlier in the day and since that time crew had been avoiding her more or less, except the captain and Ensign Sanchez, those two at least were more than aware of what she was going through. There was the good Doctor as well, although she hadn't seen him since the previous night and so far he wasn't on deck when they escorted her to the bridge.

 When the security team came to collect her from the assigned cabin, that wasn't without problems either. One of the young ensigns wanted her cuffed and chained; that was resolved quite easily when another put him in place, added with Roxy's stare down. So here she was, possibly the last time she might see this beautiful ship. She stood there with her head down, hands behind her back deep in thought.

For a long moment Aldus stood at the opening to the bridge, his eyes on the young woman they had rescued a few days ago. He was wondering curiously what on earth could be going through her mind right now, knowing if it were him, he'd be worried sick. Giving Rebecca a slight nudge before entering he spoke in a whisper to her. "For some bizarre illogical reason lass, my gut instinct tells me we haven't seen the last of Roxanne. I'd welcome it if somehow the path that lays before her brought her back to us. She has that presence that effuses an ability to draw strength in all of us don't you think?"

"Thank you, Lieutenant Murtaugh. Ops, what do we know about that nebula?" Scot said as Roxanna stepped onto the Bridge. Half turning in his chair he looked at her and said, "Well hello miss Dane. How are you doing?" Then he saw the Doctor, "Hey Doc, what brings you to the Bridge?"

Ryn nodded. Turning to the doors as it opened, she watched another new crew member enter. The woman had her head down and hasn't introduced herself yet. Curious, Ryn offered her rare half smile before it vanished. She noticed her perfect figure and realized some strength from her. Turning her focus back to the view-screen, Ryn kept her eyes monitoring the scanning of the nebula to make sure it would finish without a hitch. The crew was hard at work and Ryn hoped for the moment to come where she would meet new people. She wasn't sociable exactly, but she was an able listener.

 Shifting on her feet from side to side you could say that Roxy looked as nervous as a cat. She was. That dream of the future was well within her grasp, yet there were twists and turns her mind's eye couldn't see. One of those twits inevitably was what would happen to  her once she left the Valhalla, would these people she was being sent to; how would they treat her?

 Swallowing a lump in her throat, she answered with the only thing she could say. "Nervous sir. I've faced hundred's of the twisted variety of my kind in battle, taken out a whole squad on my own. Yet this, this uncertainty makes me more fearful than I can remember. That does not make any sense to me at all."

Scot nodded and frowned slightly in response to what Roxy said. "I understand completely. This entire quadrant seems to be spiraling into chaos. Not an ideal situation in the least." he paused as he turned to look at Roxanne and smiled slightly, "At least you will soon find yourself in the Alpha Quadrant where things are more what they should be."

Ryn turned in her chair toward the Ops section where Isla was. Isla somehow missed the captain's question, but Ryn heard it. The commander exhaled. Getting up, she adjusted her tunic and walked across the carpeted floor toward the ops section. Touching the side of the console, Ryn placed her other hand on her hip. She spoke calmly and professionally repeating the captain's question, "Commander. What do we know about the nebula? Lieutenant Murtaugh mentioned interference to the scans."

Ryn was polite as she understood the stress of duty that makes some people miss the questions offered by others. She knew that when getting command. Sometimes when orders are given, it doesn't fully go through and people sometimes need reminders or a refresh of what was said before moving on. No reprimands were necessary unless the situation warrants it.

As the Valhalla reached the nebula, Elspeth made her way to the bridge. While she didn't have to be on the bridge in order to scan the nebula and analyze the sensor data, she felt things went better when a liaison was present between the Command Staff and the Scientists. It helped streamline communication, and gave those in blue valuable insight into how the ship was actually run.

She was a bit surprised to see the CMO present as well, but figured he had his own reasons. Greeting the captain, Elspeth took a seat at the science console on the front of the bridge. Logging in, she quickly scanned the reports to verify what she already suspected.

"All sensors are online Captain and the science department stands ready to receive data."

Isla flushed a bit.  She hadn't even realized she had missed a direct question.  Oh great.  What a great start to her first day here.  She shook her head.  "We don't know much," she answered, pulling up a couple different screens.  "It seems to be a large cloud mass which could be why there was interference with the scans."  She tapped a few more buttons, seeing what they had to go on with the nebula.  "It's large enough to hide a ship though."

Ryn nodded while inputting a few commands on the ops console. She was helping her out. Confirming what she saw, Ryn muttered looking at the screen, "Its a Type 2 disruptive Inversion Nebula. It was neither a question nor a command. It was a random thought passing from her head through her mouth to no one in particular. She was also no science officer. Even if she learned her nebulae through the required Astronomy courses in the academy, she had no clue on the details. She just recognized the images. It was beautiful and rare to see.

She had a look at the screen. It seemed harmless from a distance. Specs of white dots mixed with other gasses together. It was a rare phenomenon but to be enjoyed from a distance. Isla could be right. They might be hiding a ship inside it. The Valhalla should be prepared if they pass the Nebula. Turning her head to the doors opening, she noted Elspeth reporting onto the bridge. Perfect timing, Ryn thought to herself. Maybe Elspeth could help with the sciency thing as it wasn't the commander's forte.

Scot sat and listened to what his First Officer and Chief of Operations reported to him then sat running things through his mind. "Commander McAines, what is the status of the freighter?" after a slight pause he looked at Commander Sheppard, "XO, please assemble an away team to escort Roxanne to the freighter. Detail two security personnel and two marine personnel. The Marine XO will lead the away team. I will brief them in the transporter room when we arrive. Also, get a situation report from engineering please."

Turning to look at Roxanne Scot said, "I understand you had something you wanted to talk with me about. Do you want to speak here of someplace more private?"

Isla watched her screens, making sure she hadn't missed anything.  She turned as Scot spoke to her.  "It appears the freighter is stationary at the moment, sir," she answered, pulling up the info on her screens.  "It is right at the edge of the nebula which still intrigues me.  It is much bigger then I have seen before, but things seem to be in order with the freighter."  She was curious about the cloud there was no doubt there.

No sooner had Paddy opened his mouth to speak, as usual the busy activity of the bridge swung into action. He stood to one side allowing Rebecca to fully enter, then waited his moment to say what he wanted to say. The problem was with the time that had elapsed he mind went blank. "Nothing especially important Scot, I think my intention was to see Miss Dane off safely and to wish her well. Also, I brought my protege' with me so she can see first hand how efficiently our good ship runs."

 Her face only brightened marginally. The one thing Roxy did know about this period of time, something that apparently had not changed since the establishment of the Federation, they did things by the book and letter. She was in for a hard time with endless interviews, interrogations and the like until they were satisfied she was no threat. Not a happy prospect at all, but then again she was still alive. "Yes sir, this." She handed him the disc file she had downloaded. "I traced my DNA and lineage, this proves my bone fide identity right back to Denmark of Earth in the eighteenth century, I was hoping it would help my claim to freedom."  Despite the fact that she was 'made' in a baby factory, clones more or less; she was still human and the master race that captured her people had to use human embryos to begin with. That made her as human as anyone, to a degree.

Looking up at the captain, Ryn nodded, "Yes sir. I will gather the away team,"

Turning to Isla next to her, Ryn replied, "Thank you, Commander."

Organizing the away team was no ordinary, easy feat. It required a lot of thinking especially on her part. They were to escort Roxy to the freighter. Toggling her combadge, she replied opening comm to engineering, "Sheppard to Engineering. Commander, report. What is the situation now?"

Walking toward the turbolift, she nodded at Scot, Roxanne  and Paddy to dismiss herself before entering the lift. Taking out the PADD, she proceeded to start writing down the situational report made by the chief.

Scot nodded at Commander Sheppard as she left the bridge then turned his attention to Roxanne. As he looked over the information she had presented him he said, "This is pretty impressive and thorough. You should definitely share this with whoever you speak with at Deep Space Nine when you arrive. With this, I would be surprised if you weren't able to find a descendant of yours on Earth perhaps." glancing at the doctor he continued, "What do you think the chances of her turning up a relative or two is?"

(Engineering)

It wasn't surprising that the Bridge was calling for an update. With the ship nearing a Nebula, Kasey knew that at the least there would be sensor scans to take of the region. Considering the state of politics, there was also the increased chance of a less than friendly encounter with another starship.

"Huxley here Ma'am. Everything is ready down here. All known problems have been fixed. Engineering out."



He knew that there was almost always something that would crop up and need attention, but for now all systems were operating at recommended levels.

Elspeth listened to the chatter as she sat at the science station. This was why she liked to take up position on the bridge. Right now the focus seemed to be on the freighter, but there was also the legitimate concern of someone else hiding in the nebula. She turned to face the Captain.
"If I may suggest sir. Passive sensors aren't picking up anything inside the Nebula, but if we tie the gravimetric and targeting sensors into the lateral sensor array, it should be enough to give us an idea if anyone is hiding in the nebula. Of course they'll likely know we're scanning them, but that's a risk we'd have to take."

The lift continued it's destination. The chief Engineer gave Ryn the report she needed so she offered her thanks. Tapping her combadge, she called for one other person, "Captain Torino. We have arrived. Please report to the transporter room along with two of your officers. The captain will be there to brief you."

Ryn would also have to find two security officers herself to come along as well. That would be easy.

Rebecca stood on the bridge next to the doctor and tried to stay out of the way. Everyone was so intent on their jobs that it made her feel somewhat uncomfortable standing there and not doing anything. As the First Officer left the bridge, Rebecca leaned towards the doctor and asked, "Is there anything we should be doing? I feel like I am in the way."

 "Thank you sir. If there is one thing that I learned in my former life, that was to be thorough in everything you do. As you will be surely aware in my position as unit commander many times I was placed in a position to judge on a matter of military law or discipline, a thankless task at best." She took the disc back, holding in firmly. "But if we get it wrong, evidence and documentation we effectively could be sentencing someone without cause. This..." Roxy held up the disc again. "...I hope will settle things in their mind. I also added the logs you were able to collect from the Othalla, I do hope I wasn't out of line in doing that?"

Scot looked at Roxanne, "Oh I am willing to bet that there is a distant relative of yours out there someplace. It wouldn't really be that difficult of a thing to find out, just a bit lengthy perhaps." he smiled and then looked towards the doctor and his training student. "Your student looks a little uneasy doc. You working her too hard already?"

"Not especially lass unless you want your toes trodden on." The old man could barely retain his smile. "We're here for you to learn. At some point and I cannot emphasise this too much, someone might be injured, we may be attacked or a thousand other things. At that juncture, some of us, including you and me may have to step in to fill the gap." Paddy himself had sat in the captain's chair years ago aboard the USS Nelson because a/ he was the next most senior officer and b/ because the entire bridge crew had been temporarily blinded by an unexpected star burst right before the bridge view screen.

Rebecca grimaced slightly at what the doctor had said. "Well I hope that we won't be needing to step in like that any time soon." Of course she knew that duty aboard a starship was one of the more dangerous assignments, especially when dealing with the unknown, and she knew that it was inevitable that the medical department would be called on for some emergency or other, but she hoped it wouldn't be anytime soon. She was afraid that she might freeze, or panic or let down the doctor and the Captain in some way.

"We can only hope Rebecca, in this life we live, hope most often is all we have." The instant Paddy said that one small sentence he immediately regretted it. He was sounding so pessimistic, fatal. That wasn't like him at all; he knew why thought, it was the young woman Roxanne. Ever since they had brought her back to the Valhalla he'd been worried about her for no real reason, just that old man's itch in the back of his head. "Come on kiddo we're getting gloomy. We'll go say our farewells to Miss Dane."

From there he took the half dozen or so steps over to where Roxy stood with the Captain. She looked in reasonable spirits; not that he could judge her all that well, not knowing her for long. "I can only wish you a safe journey Roxanne in the hope we may see one another again." He held out his large paw for the standard handshake, it was the least he could do.

Isla glanced over her shoulder as they neared the second ship.  She would have liked to be able to talk to Roxanne.  She loved learning new things, but it appeared that was not to happen.  She silently blew out a breath as she turned back to her screens.  So far everything was looking normal and it didn't seem there would be any trouble transferring them over to the other ship.

 No she wasn't ready. She'd never be ready to be handed over to someone, or a group of someones she had no knowledge of despite the Captain's reassurances. Yet Roxanne had spent her entire adult life serving and taking orders, even when she was handing out orders herself she was still answerable to someone else. So that was in the end how she took it, on the chin stoically as she did everything and anything that she was against. "My people say Farvel, indtil vi mødes igen. We never say good bye. What I am trying to say to both of you, farewell we shall meet another day. Which I hope at least Doctor you can as the Captain said go as far as the last moment." Both of them had been so kind to her, she wished that some day she could repay that kindness. Roxy then looked at all the crew. "Thank you, thank you each and everyone of you." The time had come at last.

Scot looked around the bridge one last time before stepping into the turbolift for the short ride to the transporter room.

Owen looked down at the tactical console as a warning alarm started to sound. He immediately tapped his com-badge, but the channel wouldn't open. He tried again, with the same result. Communications were down for some reason.

"Ship coming out of warp, weapons, and shields are powered up. The transponder code matches that of the U.S.S. Mithras, a Consortium owned vessel. On board security sensors show weapons discharges on the Marine deck." He stopped for a moment as he realized that he was speaking out loud and to no on in particular. "All communications are down, could you look into it please Commander Mcaines." He paused and then reached down and tapped the red alert control. The alarm began to sound and red lights began to flash. Owen checked to ensure that their shields were up and that the weapons were charging and hoped that the Captain was on his way back to the bridge.

Isla's eyes widened as the red alert flashed.  Oh that wasn't good at all.  Just what was going on?  "On it, sir," she answered, spinning back in her chair to work through the computer system.  What had knocked the coms off line?  Whatever it was couldn't be good.  She pulled up a few different screens, searching through each carefully to hopefully find an answer.

The old man, along with his 'apprentice' was about to leave the bridge when he thought he overheard something being said about 'weapons discharges', it was faint but he was confident of his own hearing at this stage of his life. "Isla, what the hell is going on?" He demanded, if he was right, quite possibly someone may have been wounded or hurt in some way.

Isla shook her head.  "I don't know.  All the communications are down and I can't figure out why."  she looked over her shoulder at Paddy.  "Something is definitely wrong here.  I don't like it one bit."  She wasn't sure if she should go investigate or keep trying to fight the computers that just weren't cooperating.

Owen looked at his station and then glanced over to Commander McAines, "Sir, if I may. The Captain left me in command of the bridge when he left, which is fine enough under normal operating circumstances. However, in a crisis and as ranking officer on the bridge, it would be more appropriate if you were in charge. In my opinion, we should seal off the bridge and switch to the backup environmental controls for the deck. There are three marines assigned to the CIC, with myself and one other tactical officer on the bridge, but everyone should arm themselves, just in case. The Mithras is closing to within weapons range and her shields are up." Owen looked around the bridge, assessing the tactical situation. Three marines, himself and one other tactical officer, the Chief Medical Officer and his student trainee, Etana, who had combat experience at operations with Commander McAines, and then a smattering of less experienced people at helm, science and engineering stations. Whatever was happening and whoever had planned it couldn't have picked a better time. Sighing, he checked his phaser and then watched his panel.

Isla rubbed the bridge of her nose, feeling a headache coming on.  How had she suddenly become the highest ranking officer here?  She hadn't been on the Valhalla long, but she couldn't rightly turn down the assignment either.  She listened as Owen spoke, running everything through her mind.  "That seems like a good idea.  Looking at the computer system someone has managed to shut everything down with a code and I can't seem to crack it.  I would say being armed and prepared for anything would be a truly good idea right now," she agreed.

(Elspeth)


The modifications to the sensor arrays weren't going to leave the Valhalla blind while they were being carried out. They would still be able to detect other ships in the area, friend or foe, but it would briefly reduce the power of long range sensors.

Elspeth had established an open comm link with engineering to facilitate the modifications when the line suddenly went dead. About that time, the sensor panel indicated an incoming vessel, which the security officer confirmed as belonging to the Consortium. 

While Lt Murtaugh and Commander McAines discussed their options, Elspeth performed a broad spectrum sensor sweep of the surrounding space. If the Consortium had another surprise up their sleeves, she wanted to identify it before it was too late.

She gladly accepted a phaser from one of the security guards before addressing Commander McAines.
"If I may ma'am, I came from an engineering background before switching to the sciences track. I can help try to override the communications lockout."

<<Bridge>>

The bridge rumbled when the lift doors opened. Ryn came marching out all ready for action when she blurted out across the bridge at Isla, "Report, Commander McAines!" The commander turned to see the good doctor still on the bridge with his apprentice. In her stern, professional expression was a hint of understanding as she graced Paddy with her nod, "Doctor. Excuse me."

Walking across the bridge with the captain in tow, Ryn knew it wasn't the time for idle chit chat. It was the time for action and battle which she had a taste for. Approaching her seat at the Executive officer's chair, she awaited word from the captain of the bridge.

Isla turned toward Elspeth.  "Any extra help would be much appreciated.  I thank you.  Hopefully two heads will be better then one in this instance."  It frustrated her that someone had managed to lock them out of their own computers.  Who had gotten a code like that anyhow and why?  Isla straightened at the sudden bark of Ryn.  She hadn't even seen the two arrive.  She slowly turned to see Ryn and the captain.  "Communications are down.  Someone has overridden the systems with a security code.  We're trying to get it back on line now."

The last thing Paddy wanted to do was to be placed in such a position yet he wasn't about to back down from it either. He thought about the situation for at least a minute before coming to a decision. It wasn't hard. "Right people, we have work to do. Shut down power to all coms section, reroute it through the secondary power back ups then bring it on line again with a systems shield. Before you do that, change all access codes using the back up data bases." That was the first action, he had seen it done before on older ships, so it shouldn't be a problem on the Valhalla. "Then raise the ships shields, bring our defense systems online, let them know we mean business if they so much as burp." This would also serve to send a message, they will not be taken easily, if at all. "Rebecca, get yourself to our Med lab, grab two of our stunners. We may not be able to kill someone ethically, but we can certainly knock them out."

Scot followed Commander Sheppard onto the bridge just as the Doctor finished speaking. He thought over the situation as he made his way across the bridge and sat down in his chair. He looked at the view screen and the ship approaching rapidly and gripped the armrest of his seat slightly. Turning his head towards the doctor he was somewhat impressed that the man had familiarized himself with bridge operations and had devised a plan of action so confidently. "Commander McAines, do as the doctor said and take all communications systems offline. Bring them back online using the emergency protocols. Helm, full impulse. Move us away from the freighter. Lieutenant Murtaugh, seal off the bridge. No one comes or goes. Target the Mithras' engines." Looking at the doctor again he said, "I am sorry Doc. But you two are stuck here for the time being. At least until we have a better idea of what is happening on the rest of the ship." Looking back at the viewscreen he sighed, "Commander Sheppard check in the Marine CIC and see if they have communication with the Marine deck or the with marines on the landing party." Turning back towards the operations station Scot straightened and said, "Try hailing the..."

Before he could finish speaking the ship was rocked by an explosion. "Report." was all he said.

(https://s5.postimg.org/sxgx7kiwn/Owen_Murtaugh.jpg)

Owen gripped the edge of the console to steady himself as the ship rocked violently. "Phaser hit near the engineering section. Shields holding and no damage. That was likely a warning shot."

<<Bridge>>

The bridge shuddered from the hit. On the view-screen, Ryn watched as they headed for the ship that was attacking them. With a determined look, she watched them approach as the Valhalla fired upon them. Looking across the bridge, she noted the doctor still here. The bridge was locked down. Facing the captain, she nodded. They needed to deal with this first. The XO responded, "Yes, sir."

The bridge shuddered as Ryn paused hovering her finger over the comm. Something kicked her in the back of the mind reminding her that the comm was down. Inwardly, she muttered to noone in particular in the dimmed bridge in red alert, "Right..."

Getting out of her seat, she headed toward the door into the Marine CIC. It was just next door. The Commander just forgot where it was for the moment. She was new here. Pressing the button for the CIC, she walked right through the door entering the room.

Isla nodded.  "on it sir."  She set to work on shutting down all the communications and then slowly working back through the emergency protocols.  This wasn't good at all.  A soft gasp escaped her lips as their ship shudder from the hit.  She had never been on a ship that was being attacked before, so not only was she new to this ship but she was also new to being attacked.  Just what was going on and why was that ship attacking them?  None of it made sense to her as she worked on bringing everything back online with the correct protocols.

Paddy waited as the power was wound down in coms, it had a slight affect on the lighting as well, making the bridge seem dim for a few moments. The total silence wasn't a pleasant feeling for the given circumstances. He steadied himself with the hit, nothing major but enough to alarm the younger crew members. "As soon as we can determine if we have or have not been boarded Scot, Rebecca and I will need to get to my section asap, even if its under a heavy guard. Until then, I'm a passenger here on the bridge." Thus he moved out of the way, giving his assistant a gentle nudge to do the same so the others could do their work without hindrance.

Scot looked at the doctor and said, "I agree, you need to be in sickbay. How confident would you be to try getting there on your own? I highly doubt that the medical facilities or personnel are targets of this attack." He gripped the armrest of his chair as the ship was rocked by another set of explosions. Steadying himself, Scot simply looked at Owen.

Owen gripped the tactical panel as the ship was hit by another salvo from the Mithras. Glancing up he saw the Captain staring at him. "Hits on decks four, five and eight. All in the aft section. Minor damage, shields holding at seventy percent." He then turned his attention to his weapons display and pressed the fire control button.

The sounds of the ships main phaser banks firing were heard just before the ship rocked violently again as it was hit again. Several bridge terminals exploded, shooting shards of glass and sparks everywhere. The marine guard manning the door leading to the CIC was caught in the explosion when the master systems display mounted on the wall behind the tactical station exploded, throwing him to the deck hard, with wounds to the head and chest.

"Hit to deck six, near engineering. Reading heavy damage to the outer sections. The Mithras has sustained damage to her aft weapons array and impulse engine. Her shields are at fifty-eight percent. She is maneuvering to put the freighter between us." Owen said loudly as he fired another volley.

Isla gripped the console in front of her to keep her balance.  What the heck was happening?  And why was that ship firing on them?  It didn't make any sense to her.  She typed in a few more commands, managing to get them at least emergency coms for a bit.  Isla spun in her chair toward the captain and Paddy.  "I could go with them if you like," she offered.  She had least had some practice with weapons.

"Dammit!" Paddy exclaimed before he could even give Scot a decent reply as she witnessed one of the marines going down; with him there with nothing more than the clothes he wore there was little he could do other than to draw supplies via the replicator on the bridge. That was out of the question as the systems in their current state could well send him a ham sandwich when he really needed a hand bandage. "As confident as any of us are Scot when pressed. Rebecca! Help me with this lad, we'll get him down to our place the instant that door opens." He moved rather quickly in spite of his age and lack of exercise to take the marine under his shoulder. "On the count of five, open that door then forget about us, we'll be fine." Paddy waited for his number two to take up the flank on the opposite side of the boy.

He looked directly at Isla, her offer was gallant in the best of tradition but her place was right where she was. "Thanks lass, not this time. If anything should happen to either the Captain or Ryn, you have the con."

Rebecca hesitated for a moment and then moved to where the doctor was pulling the wounded marine up from the deck. Rebecca stood opposite the doctor and helped to steady the marine between them. The marine looked to be in bad shape and Rebecca tried to evaluate his wounds in order to take her mind off of the explosions and her own rattled nerves but was unsuccessful. Combat was something she could have gone her entire career without experiencing, had it been up to her. She looked at the doctor and tried to follow his example, wondering if she would ever be able to be so calm. "Right here sir. Ready when you are." she said, half trying to convince herself that she was ready.

Scot watched as Paddy and Rebecca picked up the wounded marine and then looked at the security officer standing near the turbolift door, "You accompany them to sickbay and then stay there to provide security. Use whatever force you deem necessary." he said. "Yes sir." came the immediate response. Scot then looked at Paddy and said, "Be careful and good luck. Don't take any unnecessary chances. Do whatever it takes to protect the wounded, even if that means you have to go along with the mutineers." after a pause to let what he had just said sink in Scot grinned and continued, "Hopefully they won't make the mistake of adding you to their crew. You just might be too much for them to handle." He then looked at Owen and nodded, saying, "Open the turbolift."

Isla nodded.  She hated to see Paddy leave, but knew that he was right.  She just prayed it wouldn't come to that though.  Isla breathed a bit easier after Scot sent one of the officers with them.  At least they wouldn't be completely unguarded.  She turned back to the computer screens in front of her, working her fingers across the keyboards to at least get everything up on emergency until they could catch whoever was trying to take them out.

"Be careful and good luck. Don't take any unnecessary chances"

"Well I could say the same to you lad. Watch your backs people." The door slid open, Paddy urged his patient's wobbly legs forward even though he and Rebecca were baring his weight. He looked around to see that Scot had assigned one of the junior officers to them, which made him grumble just a little. "All in, see you on the other side." He managed to get out before the door shut behind them.

Once inside there was no time for casual conversation. "The instant we get there Rebecca, get his jacket and undershirt off him. Son-" He addressed their guard. "-you can help her. I'll need to sort out what I didn't have time to do yesterday in sick bay."

Once you have communications back online try to locate our people on the freighter and get a situation report," he told the Operations officer as he gripped the armrest of his seat to brace himself as the ship rocked from yet another hit.

From Marine CIC

Ryn walked into the bridge. The room was still dimmed as the red alert light flashed. She walked toward the captain and spoke starting with the important stuff first, "We do have connection with the first platoon via a secured channel. They were sent to secure Engineering. We don't have a good connection with the away team because of the interference, but there were some indications that they were attacked. Lieutenant Garlake is working to dispatch squads to take on the hostile boarding parties. We still haven't heard from Captain Torino, although his last check in was around the marine deck on his way to the CIC."

"Thank you, Commander," Scot said as Ryn finished speaking. Scanning the bridge, he watched as each person busied themselves with their duties, seemingly on auto-pilot. Nodding with satisfaction Scot then focused on the view screen and watched as the Mithras maneuvered, using the freighter as cover. "Status of the enemy vessel."

(https://s5.postimg.org/sxgx7kiwn/Owen_Murtaugh.jpg)

"The Mithras has sustained damage to her impulse engines and her shields are at thirty-five percent. Our shields are holding at fifty-one percent." Owen replied. "She continues to use the freighter as cover."

(https://s5.postimg.org/im4kewr7b/XBUyH.jpg)

Ryn nodded satisfied that the Captain took her report. Turning back to the viewscreen, she watched as the enemy ship fired back. The bridge shuddered with several more hits. The commander wondered when will the fight end. Ryn turned to the Commander as Isla gave her report on the communications. She nodded and exhaled focusing her attention on the viewscreen again.

Turning to the captain, Ryn spoke, "I could go locate Captain Torino, Captain. See if I can regain some control of the ship back."

"Sir. The Mithras is firing on the freighter." looking down at his console he looked over the sensor readings, "The freighter has suffered major damage to it's engines, life support and I am showing multiple hull breeches. Sensor and communications interference are gone."

Scot stood and watched the main viewscreen as Owen spoke. "What the hell?" after a brief pause he said, "Commander McAines, try to contact the away team again and get a status report and try to lock onto them for emergency transport." Then, speaking to no one in particular, "As soon as we get the chance we will lower the shields and transport our people back."

Scot listened to the transmission from the Marine private and then stood, looked at the viewscreen and then looked at Isla, "Tell them that they need to move to the transporter room as quickly as possible. With the amount of damage that freighter has taken I doubt they have four minutes. Once you have contacted the away team, contact the transporter room and tell them to stand by for an emergency transport." Scot then walked over and stood next to the helm. Looking down at Lieutenant Keval he said, "Put us between the freighter and the Mithras. Maybe we can draw some of that fire."

"Yes sir," said Keval as he swung the Valhalla about, bringing her once more into the Mithras' line of fire.

The Mithras had just fired a salvo towards the freighter but hit the Valhalla several times instead. However, one shot did find its mark, striking the freighters engineering section. Several secondary explosions started to erupt from the freighter as the stricken vessel went dead in space.

Isla's face paled as she listened to the transmission.  Things had just gone from bad to worse.  She blew out a breath, knowing this was only going to get worse. She turned her attention back to the team at hand that was fast running out of time.  "Private Miyan, this is Lt. McAines.  Get to the transporter room ASAP.  I will let the others know you are there."  Once she had clicked off there she dialed up the transporter room.  "We need to be ready for an emergency transport."

Scot recoiled slightly as the freighter exploded, then, before he could say anything, the Mithras broke off its attack and warped out of the area. After a few seconds, he asked, "Did we get our people out?" He looked towards Isla questioningly.

Isla stared in shock as she watched the freighter explode.  How could it have happened so quickly?  She shook her head.  "There was not enough time," she said softly, watching the screen.  "But wait, I think I see the escape pods," she said, a hint of hope sounding in her voice.  She prayed at least someone of them had managed to escape that disaster.

Scot sat in his chair once again and the glanced towards the Ops Station. "Get me a damage report Commander McAines." He then tapped a control on the command console next to him, opening a channel to the transporter room. "Transporter Chief, get a lock on all survivors in the escape pods and bring them aboard. Security detachments will be deployed to the transporter rooms. Notify the bridge if any of our people are recovered. Captain out." After another brief pause he leaned back in his chair, "Lieutenant Murtaugh, take us to yellow alert, drop the shields to transport survivors then bring them back up. Dispatch security details to each transporter room and then move all survivors to the ship's mess and hold them there for debrief."

(https://s5.postimg.org/sxgx7kiwn/Owen_Murtaugh.jpg)

Owen immediately reached down and pressed several controls on the tactical display then  said, "Yes sir, yellow alert. Shields are down awaiting transport. Security teams have been dispatched to the transporter rooms. Status reports are starting to come in, critical areas and decks one through ten are reporting as secured."

(https://s5.postimg.org/wtl2c2p4n/Scot_Harvath.jpg)

"Very well Lieutenant." Reaching down Scot opened the channel to the Transporter Chief, "Energize when ready chief."

"Transporter room three to the Bridge. We have retrieved several members of the away team as well as civilian survivors."

Isla nodded.  "On it now, sir." She spun back to her console, her fingers flying over the keys.  After a couple communication calls and computer analysis she at least had an idea of the damage.  What a mess.  She prayed they wouldn't run into anything else while they were out or at least not until they had time to do some damage control on their own ship.

Satisfied that the situation aboard ship was coming under control, Scot returned to the command chair and opened a channel to the transporter room once again.

"Transporter room three, Captain Harvath here. What is the status of the away team and Major Dane?"

Sitting back he waited for the response while studying the status screen of the command console.

Isla leaned back in her chair for a few seconds, her eyes spinning.  She couldn't believe the damage.  Communication was still very touch and go.  One minute it would work then somehow they were off line again.  There were going to be some areas that were going to need major repairs, but thankfully nothing career ending for the valiant ship. Shields were running on half power which wasn't good.  That was going to be one of the first things that needed tackled along with getting the engines back up to full power. 

She turned as she heard Dane's voice.  Betrayal?  Seriously?  On their own ship?  "What now, sir?  If they betrayed us are they the only ones?"

Scot finished reviewing the reports he had called retrieved through the command console when he heard Roxanne's angry voice reporting in on behalf of the away team. Things had obviously gone terribly wrong, but he was glad she had made it through okay. Turning to face Isla he said, "Undoubtedly they were working in conjunction with the people who tried to take over the ship." he paused for a minute, watching her as she worked at her station. "You've done a good job Commander, glad to have you aboard." Standing he looked around the bridge, looking at each bridge officer before speaking again, "That goes for all of you. Well done. Things could have gone much differently but you all did the jobs you were trained for." He then walked across the bridge towards the briefing room, responding to Roxanne's report as he went.

"Major Dane, glad you made it back. Do you have any injured? If so sickbay is standing by to receive them. I was told you some civilians made it off the freighter with you. Do you have any details about them?"

Ensign Kala Pren stepped out of the turbo lift and onto the bridge just as the Captain neared the briefing room. Unsure of what to do she blurted, "Ensign Pren reporting sir! I need to speak with you." and then looked around the bridge nervously. Her adrenaline was still pumping after making her way to the bridge, dodging small fire fights and pretty much any other crew members since she didn't know what side anyone was on. Her only thought had been of getting to her duty station and giving her report.

(https://s5.postimg.org/wtl2c2p4n/Scot_Harvath.jpg)

Scot stopped and turned to see the young operations officer looking around the bridge, apparently trying to decide what she would do next. "Ensign. Glad you made it safely. What do you need to speak with me about?"

(https://s5.postimg.org/z84o7rohj/Kala_Pren.png)

"Sir, I had to evade several groups of crew members, I wasn't sure who was a mutineer or not, so I had to hide several times. At one point I found myself near the control room for the communications sub-systems. Ensign Harriman, at least I think that is his name, and two other technicians were sabotaging the communications. I don't know where Ensign Harriman went after they were done, but when the two technicians left I was able to take them unaware and stun them. I searched them and found this PADD which apparently has a timeline and a list of various targets throughout the ship. I also found these modified communications devices they were using. From there I made my way here as fast as I could." she said. Afterward, she stood at attention waiting.

(https://s5.postimg.org/wtl2c2p4n/Scot_Harvath.jpg)

Scot listened to her nervous report and nodded with approval when she finished, "Good work Ensign, way to take the initiative." he walked back across the bridge and stopped in front of her then took the PADD she was holding and the communications device. "Why don't you take a breather then check with Commander McAines and see what help you can be at Ops."

(https://s5.postimg.org/z84o7rohj/Kala_Pren.png)

"Yes, sir. Thank you, sir." is all she said before walking over the ops station and standing next to the secondary ops station.

Scot glanced at the PADD and then the communications device. He then stepped over to his chair and reached down to the control panel in the chair arm. He opened a channel and then said, "Commander Parker. Report to the bridge. Harvath out." He hoped his Strategic Operations Officer was okay as he hadn't heard anything from her since before the attempted mutiny began. She had been overseeing some routine matters in the security department.

Erin stepped off of the turbolift as soon as the doors slid open and stepped onto the bridge. It was only now starting to hit her that this wasn't some hypothetical training drill based on a ship having a part-Maquis crew. This had been a legitimate mutiny attempt, and the very idea that someone could easily kill someone else that they had spent months or even years working with made her skin crawl.

She approached the Captain, paying no heed to the small laceration on her left cheek. It still stung, but she was so mentally occupied by what had just happened that her mind wasn't putting a high priority on the injury.

"Captain. Deck 8 is being secured now. I ordered Level 10 forcefields on the armory and secondary bridge until I was sure we were safe, and a security team not associated with the mutiny is conducting a sweep now." Erin took a breath, wanting to report everything blow-for-blow, but she had to keep a lid on herself and maintain professionalism. The Captain was likely being flooded with information and it wouldn't help anything to just start babbling like a First Year Cadet.

<<From Transporter room>>

 Some good five minutes after leaving, Roxy had managed to easily navigate the ships passageways to find herself and the two she brought with her up to the bridge. A huge sense of relief washed over her when she saw that most of those she had met earlier were still alive and well. As the door closed behind her, she stood rigidly at attention, blood streaked down her left shoulder, something she hadn't even noticed previously, she brushed it away. A snappy marine salute (her version was to slap the right fist across her chest) "Major Roxanne Dane reporting as ordered sir. With me is Khel'dor and Mister Jackson Weaver, both former passengers of the freighter. The ships captain and one other traitor have been secured sir." She looked to Khel'dor for some input on the last two.

Post by: Kheldor on July 30, 2017, 07:37:08 PM
Kh'eldor looked from Roxanne to Scot and considered his words before coming to attention and saluting Scot in the Klingon fashion.

"Captain, I am Lieutenant Commander Kh'eldor, of House jey'Nas. I was on a mission for the High Council and Imperial Intelligence to infiltrate the freighters crew. Partially to apprehend the traitor Japek, who is behind a forcefield in your brig by now I hope. The rest of my mission I can't go into at this moment, however, I can say the Klingon Empire and Starfleet seem to share the same problem."

Scot glanced towards Lieutenant Murtaugh at the Tactical station as Kh'eldor spoke. Owen immediately started tapping away at his console. When Kh'eldor stopped speaking, Scot studied the Klingon, then said, "Welcome aboard the Valhalla Lieutenant Commander. Your prisoner is being transferred to our brig as we speak. I am glad that part of your mission, at least, is complete. As for the rest, we can discuss that at a later time. For now, consider yourself our guest, I will have living quarters made available to you. Now, if you and Major Dane would accompany me to the briefing room, I would like to speak with your input in this meeting."

After a pause, Scot tapped his com-badge and was gratified to hear the channel open. "Attention, this is the Captain speaking. All department heads and senior Marine personel report for a senior staff briefing. That is all." He then closed the channel and made his way over to the briefing room. As the door slid open Scot paused and looked around the bridge. "Ensign Pren, you have the Bridge." Scot then stepped into the briefing room without waiting for a reply.

 Some days her old CO used to say, it didn't pay to get out of bed. Then there were those days that every minute you spent lying in your cot was a total waste of time; today was of the latter, Roxy felt completely buoyed by the events despite losing some people she felt given the surprise of the situation they came off not too badly. With the captain now seeing things with a degree of clarity, every aspect of what was to come now relied on him and his team; a bloom of blush appeared on Roxy's face when she heard him include her in the next briefing. "Mister Weaver, you'd best come with me sir. I think the Captain may wish to hear your view of events as well."

She filed out of the Bridge and to the Briefing Room without a word.

Owen stood at the tactical station staring down at the various panels with an irritated expression on his face. The brig officer had just relayed the latest, in a long string of complaints, from the mutineers and Consortium agents who had survived the destruction of the S.S. Timbuktu. Currently, they were complaining about the cramped conditions in the brig. He couldn't wait to hear the complaining once the interrogations of the ringleaders began.

Etana stepped onto the Bridge and walked over to the Helm and relieved the young ensign who had been manning the station during the Delta shift. If he had his way Etana would be the one going off duty instead of just beginning his shift. He had never much liked the Alpha shift, he wasn't a morning person, due in part to the fact that he rarely slept well due to nightmares which centered around his time spent in the labor camp during the Cardassian occupation of Bajor. He stretched before sitting down and pressing a series of buttons which reset the helm controls to his personal configuration. A quick scan of the various readouts showed that the ship was still on the course which the Captain had ordered, skirting the border of Dominion space. After making a small course correction, Etana settled in for what would likely be a routine duty shift

Sherman folded his arms, shifted his weight slightly to the side as his brow slowly knitted together as Owen told him the news of the prisoners. If he had not been looking annoyed now, he certainly had to swallow it down now - lips only twitching at the sides.

"Well, why don't we give them a bubble bath at the same time." He retorted. "Have they given any plausible reason to be putting forth demands or do they just expect us to bow down?"

"I think the main complaints are from the higher ranking officers among the mutineers, basically saying that it is against Starfleet regulations to force senior officers to share cells with the lower ranks and that they should be confined to regular quarters. Also, the Klingon prisoner is demanding that he be put in contact with the home world and the High Council. He claims to be from an important family and says he is a member of the High Council. I sent word to have the more vocal prisoners moved to the Maximum security cells, away from the rest."

Ensign Kala Pren looked up from the secondary operations station and hesitated a moment before speaking.

"Commander McAines. The latest damage control reports show that most of the major damage has been dealt with. One outer section of deck 5 has been sealed off and force fields have been put in place due to a large hull breach. Aft shields are down to eighty five percent efficiency due to two destroyed emitter arrays. I am trying to compensate."

Eyes closed, seated in the upright position with a straight posture and arms resting on the armrests, Ryn took a few meditative breaths slowly. Her medium to long slightly curled hair (brown with blonde highlights) was untied. Inhaling in and out, she breathed softly while listening to the chatter on the bridge. Her thoughts processed helping through her station. It was calming especially to tender her Klingon side. It was always usually volatile especially regarding matters to certain members that mutinied on her ship. If it was one thing she hated, it was mutineers.

Among the chatter on the bridge, her sharp ears picked on the soft conversation between her tactical officers about the needs of the prisoners. It was something they could handle. Nothing worth mentioning that required her attention. Inhaling and exhaling softly, she listened to another conversation between Commander McAines and Ensign Pren. Something about the latest damage reports that she felt she should handle soon as possible.

With a slight groan, Camryn moved her head sideways to crack her neck and soothed her stiff muscle. Taking her arms from their resting position, she ran her fingers through her hair and moved it into one long tail over her shoulder. A stray hair fell as she rose to her feet and turned toward Pren's station. The commander spoke, "I'll handle it."

Adjusting the band around her left wrist, she tapped her combadge, "Bridge to Engineering.  She paused for a few brief moments with another thought in her mind. I might have to go down there at some point to Engineering, Ryn grumbled. "What is the status on that damage we took during the last fight."

Might as well stretch the old legs, Ryn mused silently.

As the door to the Captains Ready Room slid closed behind him, Kh'eldor stood straight and walked across the bridge to the tactical station where a couple of officers stood. A Marine who was guarding the entrance to another room eyed Kh'eldor suspiciously as the Klingon approached. One of the two officers manning the station looked up and then shut down a few screens of his station. Kh'eldor wasn't insulted in the least by the action, instead he grinned and thought to himself, 'Wise precaution.'

Stopping in front of the two Starfleet officers he held out the PADD he had been given and said, "I was told by the Captain to give this to Lieutenant Murtaugh."

Owen looked up from the tactical station with a somewhat confused look on his face and took the offered PADD. After nodding to Kh'eldor he looked towards Commander LeBlanc and then turned his attention to the PADD. He pressed a control on the screen and then frowned as he saw that the message required a pass code to open. After entering his personal authorization code into the device he pressed the screen again and this time the file opened. After reading the message he read it a second time and then looked at Kh'eldor again. After closing the file he deleted it and then looked at Commander LeBlanc and said, "Excuse me for a moment sir. The Captain has asked that I deal with something for him that is of a personal nature." Owen then turned his attention back to the PADD and typed out a message which he transmitted to the Flight Control station and then deleted. After handing the PADD back to Kh'eldor he said, "The information the Captain required has been sent to him. I would assume he will detail someone to help you further."

Confused he reached down and pressed the indicator. As the message opened he saw that it had come from the Tactical Station. After reading the message he closed and then deleted it. He them calmly stood and motioned to a nearby Ensign to relieve him. After he checked over the ships course and noting that there were no major obstacles or anomalies along the flight path that might interfere with the ship, he walked over to where Kh'eldor stood.

"Excuse me sir. The Captain has asked that I escort you and give you any assistance you might need." he said as he gave a sidelong glance towards Owen. "If you would please follow me, sir?" he said as he began to walk towards the turbolift entrance.

Kh'eldor was entirely sure what was going on, but he did know that now wasn't the time to ask. Being an intelligence officer and operative he noted that whatever the interaction had been between Lieutenant Murtaugh and the officer who had come from the flight station had been done covertly. "Lieutenant." he said as he nodded to Owen, then looking at Commander LeBlanc as he turned to follow Etana he said, "Commander." with another nod. He then walked over to the trubolift where Etana was waiting.

As soon as she arrived on the bridge, Erin went straight for the Tactical Station, looking to Murtaugh and LeBlanc.

"I understand there's some issues going on in the brig. Could either of you please bring me up to speed?" Erin asked.

 There was a moment once again when Roxanne felt as if she was nothing more than either a visitor or piece of baggage waiting to be retrieved as the unfamiliar crew talked over her head. It was just a little embarrassing but not something she couldn't handle or cope with, after all she had only been appointed not just fifteen minutes ago so perhaps it was going to take time for these people to adjust to the fact that she was both Marine Commander and temporary Security chief.

 She'd heard the orders, not to mention the constant flow of information reaching her ears through the comslink, that was something she had latched onto quite early, finding herself for some reason being able to hear messages that weren't even initially intended for her. Was it some quirk of her futzed human system and DNA, or was it a part of the Niaid strain that still coursed through her veins? She didn't really care, so long as she was able to carry out her job with the expectancy the Captain required of her, and the crew. "We have prisoners to both secure, protect and move, a simple procedure I would expect. I understand we're required to wear suits of protection, so if someone will show me the way we can get under way as soon as practical." She glanced at Kheldor giving him a reassuring look, both of them were still the 'aliens' so far and it would take time for everyone to get used to them.

Owen nodded as Major Dane and the others approached the tactical station and after glancing over to Commander LeBlanc, decided he should brief the senior officers.

"Commander Parker, Major Dane, I can fill you in. Delta shift reported that several of the prisoners were becoming unruly. Making various demands concerning their disposition, wanting to be moved to crew quarters instead of the brig, demanding that either charges be brought against them immediately or they be released. The Klingon captive from the freighter is  demanding access to a channel to the Klingon home world and is also claiming diplomatic status. Most of the complaints seemed to be coming from the higher ranking mutineers, so they were seperated from the rest of the prisoners. Just before Alpha shift took over this morning, several of the prisoners fell ill. At first it seemed innocuous enough, but the situation quickly deteriorated and those that were sick died. Doctor O'Flynn was notified and a medical team responded to the brig. Those prisoners who were not showing any kinds of symptoms were moved to the mess hall on deck eight and have been secured. The ring leaders have been moved to the segregation cells. The medical situation seems to be contained, we haven't been updated on that yet and the majority of the prisoners have calmed down some, except for the leaders." Owen paused for a moment as he ran through things in his head, "I should also tell you that the Captain has given Commander Kh'eldor permission to try and interrogate the Klingon captive. Commander Kh'eldor just left and is being escorted by Lieutenant Hiroto." Owen finished and then prepared to answer any questions there might be.

Erin nodded and turned to the Marines with her.

"Major, Captain. Go help secure the situation. Phasers on heavy stun if you have to, but let's not resort to force immediately. I don't want a riot, but we need to establish quarantine procedures immediately." She said. Walker nodded and looked to Roxanne.

"This way, ma'am. We've got our EV combat gear that'll do the job better than the suits Medical has." Walker said, gesturing to the door.

Erin then looked back to Owen.

"As for the prisoners' request, in light of this emergency situation, consider them all denied. I'm well aware of their rights afforded by Federation law, but they should be aware that martial law is still applicable and can be applied if a situation is deemed as such. If the Captain wishes to override me in this, he's free to do so, but my personal recommendation is that we consider this situation to be handled as if we were placing a location under martial law. When it becomes clear that the prisoners are no longer a threat to themselves or others, we will process their requests in a timely fashion." Erin explained.

"Yes sir." Owen responded."I will send word to keep the co-operative prisoners in the mess hall under heavy guard until we get the okay to move them back to the brig. As I said, most of them seem quite content now that we have them separated from the ring leaders. Of course access to the replicators, comm system and computer terminals in that mess hall have been cut off." Pausing briefly Owen looked down at his terminal and read a message. "Commander Parker. It appears that some of the lower ranking prisoners have asked to be debriefed and are offering to share whatever information they have in exchange for consideration. I can send word to separate them and have interviews conducted."

 A few moments of thought was all Roxy needed to come up to speed; the information as usual being processed by her 'systems' like brain. Weighed up, she did have a random thought on the prisoners and one that may not go down well with them at least. "We shouldn't trust them, after what they were a part of, even asking such a request goes beyond their deeds. Yet, the information they provide we can back check on can't we? I'm assuming that there are resources allowing us to guarantee we're not being fed ..." she searched her mind for the right expression in English, hopefully it was the right one. "...a dead herring." Turning to Walker she dipped her head. "I'll have to follow you on this one until I'm familiar with everything we have, lead on."

Storr exited the Marine CIC and heard the last bit of what Major Dane had said as he passed. He stopped and turned towards the group, "Excuse me Major, I would be happy to tag along with you so to speak. I was going to head down and speak with some of the prisoners later anyway, particularly the Marine mutineers to prepare for their courts martials. No reason why I couldn't help you with the others. Might as well earn my pay as the Intelligence Officer." he said with a half smile.

 Two steps before she left Roxy was pulled up sharply, but of course respectfully. Lowering her head an inch in acknowledgement, she had nothing much to add at this point, only to get the job done. "Your company will be most welcome as I am still finding my way around not only the ship but the finer points of procedure. Despite reading almost the entire Federation rules of conduct, discipline and martial codes, I find that hands on experience will serve me best." Roxy caught the eye of Walker and Erin to ensure they were onboard with her. "Lead on please Lieutenant." At some time in the near future as CO of the Marines, she will definitely be drawing up a list of roles for her people, those she needed as basically 'her' team.

Prior to stepping onto the turbolift, Erin turned back around.

"Lieutenant, please go ahead and separate the prisoners immediately. And have the Marines prep some EV combat suits for us. I'm inclined to concur with Captain Walker's idea to use those instead of standard decon suits, better safe than sorry."

Erin then turned around and joined the others in the turbolift.

Isla watched everyone head in different directions.  She caught sight of Ryn and slipped out of her chair to speak with her.  "What do you think of everything going on?" She asked curiously.   "That woman, Roxanne gives me the creeps.  Do you think it's really safe to have her on board with everything that has happened?" She asked curiously.

Kala looked up from the back-up ops station and considered what Isla had said. She hadn't dealt with the alien woman yet and only knew what she had heard from other crew members. "I don't know, she is definitely intimidating, but she seems okay to me. I have heard from a few people about what she did on the freighter, and she was definitely on our side in that situation. Plus the Captain seems to trust her."

If there was one advantage Ryn had, it was standing still for a long period of time. After waiting for the response from Engineering, she watched and observed several things going on including the coming and going of Roxanne, their new crewmember. Even when Isla came up to ask her about Roxy, Ryn took the time to think about her response. Pren chipped in and Ryn exhaled with a sigh.

Keeping her arms behind her back and her back straight, the XO merely shrugged her shoulders and responded, "I can't really tell until after I've assessed her abilities for myself. For now, I can just keep an open mind."

Besides, she thought to herself, A little sparring exercise in the holodeck never hurt anyone. I need to see her skills for myself before I deem her fit for her department.

Kala started to say something in response, but an alarm drew her attention back to the secondary ops console she was manning. After looking over her panel and checking twice to make sure of what she was seeing, she turned and said "Commander McAines, Commander Sheppard, I am picking up a faint distress signal. It appears to be located just over the border in Dominion space." after making a few adjustments to her console she looked over the signal once again before continuing, "It appears to be coming from a small asteroid and is a Dominion signal. It is fading in and out."

Isla quickly turned toward Kala.  "Shoot," she mumbled under her breath, spinning back to her screens.  The young woman was right.  But what was out there?  She blew out a breath.  "Hopefully it's not another trap.  I hate thinking that way but we barely survived the last one."  It wasn't that she didn't want to help she was just a bit leery now.  Something that she didn't like at all.

Dominion? Shoot. Not those guys... Ryn thought to herself. Alert and ready, the woman did a full ninety degree spin toward the view screen and barked out an order, "Analysis of this signal? Is it legit? Helm, take us toward where the signal is. Maximum warp and then slow to impulse. Tactical, yellow alert."

Ryn cleared her throat. Turning to Isla, she answered her concerns, "We'll be careful commander. Anything that smells off, just tell us." She nodded and walked toward the XO chair. Sitting down, she toggled the comm to a private channel to the CO, "Captain Harvath. We have a distress call that requires your attention. It originated from Dominion Space."

Scot walked briskly onto the bridge moments after the message from Commander Sheppard. He looked around at the activity as he made his way to his chair and sat down. Glancing at the command screen situated next to his chair he said, "What's going on XO?"

Turning, she noted Scott's arrival as he took his seat at command. Responding to his question, Ryn spoke, "Distress signal from the Dominion Sector, sir. Ensign Kala discovered it. Still waiting on the analysis of it, but we should be cautious. It's coming from a small asteroid. We're on Max warp and yellow alert is on."

Scot stared at the view screen while he listened to the report of his First Officer. When she was done speaking he shifted in his seat and looked around the bridge before speaking, "Very well Commander. Helm, bring us out of warp well before the source of the signal, I want plenty of time to look around before we reach that station."

The Helmsman immediately nodded and said "Aye sir." as he made some adjustments at the flight control station.

"Lieutenant Murtaugh, what is your assessment of that station? Are there any other ships in its vicinity?" he asked as he turnded towards the Ops station. "Commander McAines what else can you tell us? Do you know the nature of the emergency is?"

After a few moments Scot turned back to his First Officer and said, "Commander appraise Major Dane of the situation and have her prepare a team to escort a landing party for a possible search and rescue mission."

Owen studied his panel and its various readouts before answering, "Sir, it is a fairly standard Dominion listening post. Lightly armed and shielded. It would normally be masked by a sensor scattering field but I am not picking up and interference so it is possible that it has been disabled as a result of the emergency situation. I am not showing any Dominion ships near the station, nor am I showing any ships on the usual patrol routes which is odd considering the Dominion has always aggressively patrolled the borders of its space."

Isla studied her readings, not liking them at all.   "There seems to be minimal life signs there and nothing really in the signal itself.  Seems to be a common distress signal sent out all over. "   she nibbled on her lip.  "There hasn't been any answers to our calls but it seems like the normal ones that should be on that station are a normal Jem'hedar detachment."

Post by: Scot Harvath on April 04, 2018, 10:04:11 PM
Scot listened to his two officers and then considered his options. Rushing into Dominion space wasn't something he was comfortable doing for a couple of reasons. First it was a delay in their primary mission and every second delayed meant more of a possibility that the Consortium could be alerted. Second, it wasn't beyond the realm of possibility that this was a Dominion trap. A way of blaming the Federation for illegal incursions into their space. He say motionless as he though and then finally sighed and looked around the bridge once again.

"Commander McAines continue to try and contact them and verify the nature of their emergency. Lieutenanat Murtaugh, keep scanning for Dominion ships and deploy security teams to vital areas of the ship." he said.

Reaching up to his combadge he tapped it and spoke once the channel was open, "Bridge to Doctor O'Flynn. Doc I hate to say this but I am going to need you to get ready for possible incoming wounded, injuries unknown. We are en route to answer a distress signal. Nature of the emergency is unknown as of now. I will also need you to prepare a medical team to standby to escort a landing party should the need arise." after a pause he spoke again, "Bridge to Major Dane. Major prepare a team of four marines to escort a landing party into a potential hostile area during search and rescue operations. Also place your Marines on alert and deploy them throughout the ship according to standard protocol." When he was done speaking Scot reached up and closed the channel.

Scot stood and walked forward to the flight control station as the pair of messages came in from the Medical officer and Marine Commander. Looking down he studied the course they were on, "When we arrive bring the ship to within transporter range and orbit the station. Wait until the last possible second to drop us out of warp." he said to the flight control officer who nodded his head in acknowledgement, "Yes sir."

After walking back to his command chair Scot sat and then reached up and tapped his combadge, "Bridge to sickbay. Doc, meet the landing party in the transporter room." then after a moments pause he continued, "Harvath to Major Dane. Major have your team report directly to the transporter room. We will be transporting the landing party as soon as we arrive. Securing the station and any survivors is your primary concern. Once you've done that we will make a more thorough survey of the situation. Use of deadly force is authorized only if you are attacked."
