USS Athena - A / Re: Athena Mission 2.9: Perfect Paradise
« Last post by Naira on Today at 03:56:32 AM »
[Bridge]

James didn't like the idea of sending a team to the planet. He'd had multiple experiences with mysterious and unknown planets, none of which were pleasant for him. But in this case, it was the best option to move forward with. If scans here returned nothing, that didn't mean scans there would give the same results. "Let's go then. Phasers are permitted, but lethal force is not. If we're running the risk of breaking the prime directive, I'd certainly prefer to not also kill anyone." It was blunt, but got his point across nicely. He rose to his feet after a few seconds of silence. "Let's also limit the crew, even those with clearance for higher, down to Type-2's only."

[Bridge]

"Agreed. I feel it's always better to be prepared for the worst and hope it doesn't happen than to be caught unprepared in a bad situation. We'll limit the away teams to only a handful of members each and if they turn up nothing of consequence, then we'll discuss allowing more of the crew down onto the surface. " 

She took a moment to survey the Bridge before turning back to the main viewscreen to take in the sight of the planet once more.

"If you don't mind, I'd like to join one of the teams."

She didn't speak it aloud, but she was hoping that a little sunshine and fresh air might due her good. Lately her head had been full of duty rosters and shift crews that it felt as if she had no time to take a breather and relax for even a moment. Besides, if she were to admit it, she was starting to look a sickly shade of green from her lack light therapy. Getting outside and feeling the warmth of a sun on her skin as she soaked in its rejuvenating rays, might just help her feel a little better.

"We'll keep in regular contact and report all of our findings," she said as she grabbed her thermos once more and headed for the turbolift.

During the short ride down to the Shuttle Bay, she made sure to contact her daughters to let them know that she probably wouldn't be joining them for dinner, but that she would be back soon enough. After they finished their studies they were clean their room, eat only one of the designated meal options from the replicator and not to stay up too late. She had to promise Lurels two bedtime stores tomorrow and that she would oil their hair when she returned.

[Shuttle Bay]

By the time Naira arrived in the Shuttle Bay, there were already a small collection of officers and crewmen and even a few civilians vying to board the shuttles. It seemed she was far from the only person hoping to stretch her legs. Luckily everyone was being very cordial about it. A few people stepped aside as she retrieved a phaser of her own, inspected it and placed it on her hip. She also made she to grab a tricorder, which she fiddled with as she climbed aboard one of the shuttles already filling up with passengers.

She looked up from the device long enough to offer a smile to the others. "It seems we are just waiting on a pilot, then we should be good to go."

[ Shuttle Bay ]

Caleb smiled as Cadet Dravor spoke. He chuckled at her quip. "If I am needed, we brought enough supplies. If I learned anything from my time at the jungle clinic, it's that you cannot be too over prepared," He said in response. He then checked his pocket to make sure he still had his notebook. He wouldn't want to miss an opportunity to document things as they happened.

[ Shuttle Bay ]

He then took out his notebook and opened it to the latest page. "Kayla I have been waiting to show this to you," He said. On the page was a perfect drawing of her portrait and on the other page was a drawing of Buddy laying on his new roost in his office. He then showed it to her. As Kayla was looking through the notebook, he spoke to Cadet Dravor once again. "I document all of my travels. Whether it be life I was to document or If I saw or a remedy I came across. It helps me to remember the good times I have had and have yet to get to have," He said.

[Shuttle Bay]

She blinked as Caleb pulls that note pad from his pocket. Paper? Surely not. She nodded as he spoke again.

"Prudent to keep a record of everything, but why such an archaic storage method Sir? Surely a PADD would be far easy to back up and able to store immeasurably more data"

She gave a little frown, sure many people kept such relics as curios, and it wasn't at all difficult to obtain something like that from a replicator. It just seemed incredibly unusual to her.

[Bridge to Shuttle]
After a brief of odd moment, Psi looked up. “Oh, I am new too. Cadet Bytes,” he said and winked at the ladies on the ship. “It it is a pl-pleasure meeting you all.” The reason he started to stutter because he was worried he forgot something. He was not sure what it was but he had looked down to double check his phaser. Nope. That was not it. He gave a small chuckle under his breath. “Well, you mentioned jungle. Can you share a story?” He asked. He heard stories about crew members on how Caleb loved to talk about his jungle stories. So it was possible a good way to kill time.

Gave a little nod of acknowledgement as the other Cadet approached the group. Recognising him from the bridge not minutes before. Giving a little polite wave,
"Hello Cadet Bytes"

[Shuttlebay]

Ash cautiously entered the shuttlebay, quietly making her way over to the group of crewmen ready to head down to the planet. She tried to come up with a valid reason for her going as she walked and did her best not to draw attention to herself before she had a solid argument built. There’s only so much one can do in a relatively open shuttlebay though.

Her attention grabbed as Kyle started to speak to Caleb, noticing Ashlynn starting to tentatively wander in to the shuttle bay from over his shoulder. Starting to lean a little further as she peers over at the dark haired woman as she inched her way closer. Her antennae drawing in closer to each other as she focuses in on her. Her obviously growing slower and slower as she approached the growing group stood in the Shuttlebay.

" I agree I don't think they have either especially Lucy and Edward and no doubt everyone is still enjoying themselves" she replied looking at him from where she was sat on the scatter cushions, her high heels already kicked off to one side so she was comfortable.

Smiling when he mentioned the wine he had imported, loving his personal touch when he then told her that it was the same wine they had drank the first night they had met appreciating the lengths he had gone to get it.

" It is babe and I love that you've done this for us " she replied as she accepted the glass from him and toasted him back.

"Honestly I do not think they missed us much," Caleb said as he hung up his coat. He walked over to the mini-fridge and smirked as the bottle of wine inside was perfectly chilled. He walked over to grab two glasses and he popped the cork off. "I had this imported. I think you will like it," He said pouring them each a perfect glass of the red wine.

When she saw the look in her eye he nodded."Yes this is the wine we both drank the night we met. Took me a hell of a time to find to get it perfect, but I think you will agree that it is a perfect match," He said. He raised a glass and waited for her to toast him back. Though they had a bit to drink the night was still young and there was plenty more wine to be consumed as the night went along.

[NPC Post as Dr. Jack Connors - Sickbay - Exam Room 1]

(Prior to USS Gibson leaving the Starbase)

Dr. Jack Connors strode confidently into the exam room, PADD in hand and a small case in the pocket of his lab coat, which lightly slapped against his thigh with every stride.

"Sorry to have kept you waiting, Lt. McKinson. Had to run the gamut testing you to find out just what the devil was wrong. Figuratively speaking, if you don't mind me saying so, you're as healthy as a horse, so we had to dig a little deeper. The scans we did with the cortical monitor are showing you've developed a sensitivity to certain wavelengths of light radiation. Likely a result of that nasty little drug you were exposed to."

Jack stopped for a breath, and to consider his first meeting with the lieutenant. His favorite Vulcan had carried her right into Sickbay over one shoulder. If they had more time, he would have liked to question Jenna about her experience with the Vulcan mind meld. But alas, there was other business at hand. He pulled the small glasses case from his coat pocket.

"For now, I've replicated these prescription glasses for you. They will serve to filter out the wavelengths harmful to your eyes. The lenses are actually composed of a fascinating material, that will shift the tint when it senses high levels of radiation. I will further study your results to determine if a later surgery might be necessary, if your neural pathways do not heal on their own. But for the time being, these and a mild pain blocker should suffice. Please do not be afraid to come see me if you have any questions or your headaches worsen." He handed her the now open case of yellow tinted glasses, and a small vial of tablets.

[ Medical Bay ]

Jenna felt a sense of relief when the doctor came in. She put on the glasses and immediately felt relief. He eyes lit up as the headache began to cease a bit. She also took the pills as well. "Thank you Doc. These are already working," She said. She looked at the mirror in the room and her eyes lit up. "Oh I look like Geddy Lee.... I love it!." She then got up and stretched a bit as she was sitting a bit stiff while waiting for the doctor to come in. "Don't worry doc, I have the monitor on right now,"She said tapping her head lightly. "I may be headed off on the Gibson, but I will keep the logsand send them to you."

[ Uss Gibson - Engineering ]

Molly groaned as she walked into the main engineering area of the Gibson. It was a far cry form what they had at their disposal at the Star Base. "How the in fresh hell is this rustbucket functioning? " She asked looking around. Jenna chucked "You have seen nothing. I took a freighter with a gal named Maura once. This makes that look like it's the Starbase. It's all about how you use the resources. Sure we aren't as big as a base, but it isn't all that bad," She said.

As Jenna said this, something loudly clanked on the floor as if it had fallen off. A wince of pain could be heard followed by "Now that's an interesting color." Jenna shook her head. It would need to take some convincing in order to get Molly to see the good in the situation. As much as she loved the base, getting the opportunity to stretch her legs on a shore mission was too enticing to not take up. Thought she dragged Molly along, she knew this would be fun for the both of them. "Well at least there won't be huge amounts of traffic on the holosuite,"Molly said. "Atta girl!,"Jenna said in reply. "Whatever shrimp,"Molly said playfully. "Yeah yeah Giraffe. You hide subtlety like a bull in a china shop" Jenna said sticking out her tongue. The two ladies then laughed and went to check on the rogue engineer who sounded like he was in pain.

[Mess Hall]

Ash eased herself down onto a table and cradled her head in her hands. It was turning into one of those days where she wanted to call it quits and just take a nap. Technically, as mess hall manager, she could take a break if she wanted to. Both Sasha and Nicholai were in today, and they knew enough to keep things running at least sort of efficiently... But Ash didn’t even know what she would do if she took time off.  Dylan was off who-knows-where, commanding his own ship. Cat was out there with him. James was commanding this ship - and she couldn’t get in the habit of just waltzing up to the bridge whenever she was bored. She sighed and moved to open up the well-worn book in front of her, when just the sort of distraction she needed came over the comms.

=/\= Bridge to all hands. We have discovered an unexplored M class planet and we are sending down an away team to the surface by shuttle to collect samples and to explore. Anyone who wishes to participate in this away mission and has their department heads permission to do so, may accompany the team. Those who are joining the team, please report the the main shuttle bay immediately. =/\=

Unexplored planet? Now THAT sounds interesting... I count as ‘all hands,’ right?.. I totally count. Ash put her book away and slid her apron off over her head. She waved to let Sasha know she was heading out, then ducked out the door before the inquisitive redhead could question her on why.

[Shuttlebay]

Ash cautiously entered the shuttlebay, quietly making her way over to the group of crewmen ready to head down to the planet. She tried to come up with a valid reason for her going as she walked and did her best not to draw attention to herself before she had a solid argument built.

[Bridge to Shuttle]

The Cadet was smiling ear to ear to volunteer to go down to the planet to explore. He needed to get off the ship for fresh air. So he headed happily to the shuttle bay to see other folks.

He had grabbed a phaser  and a tricorder before he had entered the shuttle. He greeted everyone who was there. As he sat down he noticed two officers mingling and one kissed the other. The expression on his face was saying, what? I would never do that in uniform. Then he had wondered, Maybe that was the couple supposed to be getting married. But it was not proper to kiss. Poor leadership he thought. It was like a uniform was being work. You don’t do that unless you get paid to kiss. On the other hand, that could be a neat job.

His dark eyes looked to the ground. He was a Cadet. He had no saying. It was best to let it go.

After a brief of odd moment, Psi looked up. “Oh, I am new too. Cadet Bytes,” he said and winked at the ladies on the ship. “It it is a pl-pleasure meeting you all.” The reason he started to stutter because he was worried he forgot something. He was not sure what it was but he had looked down to double check his phaser. Nope. That was not it. He gave a small chuckle under his breath. “Well, you mentioned jungle. Can you share a story?” He asked. He heard stories about crew members on how Caleb loved to talk about his jungle stories. So it was possible a good way to kill time.
