=/\= "Acknowledged, Commander, stand by to beam out.=/\= came the response from the Bridge, as the ship went to Blue Alert and descended down to tractor beam level, depositing the Eye into Cargo Bay Three before beaming the away team back up, and leaving the planet.  Flanked by the two Romulan warbirds, all three ships hastily went to warp en route to New Romulus.

nearly 6 hours later....

[Bridge - USS Discovery - Captain Tekin Nevir]

All was reasonably quiet.  Their liaison was currently in the Conference room speaking with the Praetor.  The Captain had his senior officers on the Bridge, and as far as they knew, it was just a quiet trip through Romulan space.  Per recommendation, the object in the Cargo Bay was left untouched, guarded by security with a pair of Romulan scientists.  While annoyed that they could not run scans on the device, they had been placated by the idea that they would be able to study the object in peace once they reached New Romulus, and that seemed to satisfy them.  As Ian said; a century of a paranoid society changed slowly, and they couldn't help but feel relief and pride and not needing to share data with the Federation.

The only study currently going on was in the science lab itself, where Ruthie was set up with a couple other science officers to decode the writings and symbols they did find.  On the request from George, Evi had already been invited to help, especially since there were no other Romulans there.  Even as she looked through the symbols, though, Ruthie couldn't shake the feeling that she had already seem them.

After a while, there was a low but slowly growing increase of stress on the hull, and the warp field was showing micro fluctuations.  Nothing alarming, just out of the ordinary.  The first to notice would of course be the Helm and Engineering... with Ops soon to follow.

[Senior Officer's Quarters - USS Discovery]

Ian was enjoying a simple dinner with Jess and discussing their days, which for Jess included revealing the Addams had come with a shoulder injury that the new doctor had repaired. Ian was in the middle of describing the location of the artifact when they felt the ship shudder. As an experienced pilot, Ian could tell the shudder was not normal and gave Jess 'the look' that meant he had to go.

"I understand, your first duty is to the ship. I guess I should be jealous, but I do understand. I'll wait up."

Ian smiled and kissed the top of her head as he pulled his uniform top back on and headed for the bridge. He relied Lieutenant Commander Felder and hit the intercom.

"Mister Ozu, report."

[Bridge]

Once the away team was back aboard the ship, Saya ordered George to get some rest, then she took a brief break herself for a meal with Kyo, one that had seemed strangely familiar as she'd plucked a few fresh herbs from their small wall garden, before returning to the Bridge to man the Engineering station. While she'd like to get a look at the device, it was mostly in the purview of Science and Security, so instead she monitored things from the Bridge... until she felt the change in the ship's motion. This felt ominously familiar.

Before she could say anything, her combadge chimed: =A= Chief, can you come down here? Got some odd fluctuations.

Mr. Hugo, I do believe... didn't I tell you to rest when you returned? Saya said mildly, though her feelings of deja vu were growing.

I did... for a couple of hours. He sounded not the least abashed.

Very well. I will be there momentarily. =A=

She stood and headed for the turbolift. Captain, we may have to slow to impulse to track down the problem, but I will keep you apprised. Saya hesitated before actually stepping into the 'lift. Captain, that feeling of deja vu you mentioned earlier? I have been feeling it most of the day now. Her brow furrowed in concern as she looked at Tekin.

[Deck 1 - Main Bridge - Captain Tekin Nevir]

The Bajoran glanced towards the briefing room doors, and frowned.  Ralik had been there an awfully long time, and it did slightly concern him.  The Captain stood up, and was about to walk towards the room, when he felt that slight tremor too.  Almost immediately, there was a call from engineering and his Chief left, but not before telling him that they may need to slow.  He looked at her as she got ready to step into the turbolift, and frowned.  He was having the same sense... and it bothered him.  "Thanks for telling me Saya... hopefully this is just a feeling." he said, hearing the doors open as he turned back to Addams at the helm.

"Steady as she goes, Mr. Addams.  Let's not do anything that might set that ticking time bomb off.  Be ready to drop out of warp if necessary." he commented, before getting a message from Ops.  It was Starfleet command.  He was going to call for Ian, but he had a feeling... sure enough, Ian was suddenly stepping out onto the Bridge.

"Eerily perfect timing, Commander.  I have to step into my Ready Room.  You, uh, have the Bridge." he said, standing up and walking into his own private room. 

It didn't take long to see what the message was about.  He sighed, before tapping his console.  Yup, just as he thought.

 =/\= "Ensign- Petty Officer Torra, please report to my Ready Room."  =/\=

[Bridge --> Engineering]

Saya nodded her agreement with Tekin's sentiment before heading to engineering, where she went straight for the master systems display. George was already standing there, using a stylus to pinpoint various power relays in the display. He stepped to one side to let the chief get close.

Thought it might be those damn plasma injectors, but so far, they look fine. Power relays also look good. No energy leaks or spikes showing up anywhere.

Power consumption is slightly elevated in the warp core, but it's still within tolerance levels.


Inertial dampeners? Saya asked.

Again, all looks normal.

Saya's lips pursed to the side. Adjust the dampeners to at least smooth out the ride and keep searching for the problem.

You saw that weapon we brought aboard. Could it be responsible for this?


I don't see how. The thing didn't seem to be putting out any kind of energy, but I can go take another look.

Saya nodded. I'll take over here.

George passed over the stylus and picked up his kit. He and Saya stared at each other for a moment before George shook his head and headed out of engineering to the shuttle... No, the weapon had been tractored into the cargo bay. Why had he thought otherwise?


"Mister Ozu, report."

Nothing. Every system was functioning normally. Saya muttered in frustration before tapping her combadge to respond. =A= Commander, I don't know what to tell you. Other than the effect that we're feeling, there is nothing wrong with the ship's systems. I sent Lt. Hugo to the shuttle bay to check on the Romulan device. See if there's some sort of energy emission that we missed. =A=

Quote

"Steady as she goes, Mr. Addams.  Let's not do anything that might set that ticking time bomb off.  Be ready to drop out of warp if necessary." he commented, before getting a message from Ops.  It was Starfleet command.  He was going to call for Ian, but he had a feeling... sure enough, Ian was suddenly stepping out onto the Bridge.

There it was again. The same damn feeling when he went to sick bay, the mess hall and here. That dreaming of Leesill was possible not what he thought. Or was it?

The mind had always questioned many things. Judgment of doing the right or wrong. Or doing an action your mind ask was that right or wrong. Then it could go over the top by trying break things down with more questions.

The helmsman was keeping an eyes on his console and knew something would go wrong.

Something was amiss. He had no idea. There was NO WAY THIS CAN HAPPEN AGAIN!!!!

PO2?  Ensign? Danjar-Torra Addams


Torra was tired and frustrated with the sensation that she wasn't where she was supposed to be.  It made her less attentive on the medical procedure that she had been invited to watch.

After the procedure was done, Torra went to check in on Donny 2.0.  Despite her and Dr. Juraan's break-through with the Iaba virus cure, Donny 2.0 was still a potential carrier and therefore Torra had been denied moving him to her quarters with Happy as a 'pet'.   But she had managed to convince the Dr. Thane to allow her to keep the rodent in securely in the lab "in case the virus mutates""Ensign.. I mean Petty Officer Danjar-Addams, reporting as ordered, sir." she softly corrected herself at the rank slip.  A sudden looming feeling washed over her. 

She dipped her head apologetically.   "The Commander, kind of hinted at a possible promotion earlier... and now a call from you...  I may have jumped to conclusions.. I hope you forgive the assumption."

[Deck 1 - Captain's Ready Room - Captain Tekin Nevir]

After hearing the chime and announcing her permission to enter, the Captain sat in his chair, watching as the Petty Officer took her place, urged by his own hand gesturing to the seat.  She seemed embarrassed, and he couldn't exactly blame her.

"Unfortunately, the First Officer did end up letting the proverbial cat out of the bag... but yes.  We approved your request for transfer to the commissioned track with the rank of Ensign.  The scores from the officer exam were... exceptional, to say the least." he said, turning a PADD around so that she could see her academic record, and the approval for her new rank.

"We were going to do a proper ceremony once this mission was done, a surprise at it were.  I wanted to wait because I needed to hear back from Starfleet Command in order for it to be a full promotion and not a field promotion.  Its a good thing I did, because Starfleet saw something in your record that needs to be corrected." he stated, tapping his fingers a few times on the table, mostly to shake the feeling of dejavu that was apparently rampant throughout the ship.

"When you first came aboard, you were an Operations crewman. You went to Medical because you had the training and knowledge for it, and we did need the help.  But when I looked at the transfer request, I was surprised to see Science." he said, glancing up at the teal medical uniform she had on.

"Transferring to science from medical is not an uncommon thing, however they are usually under a bio specialization.  But not this one... this transfer said General Science.  Torra... General Science is a first year cadet track, not an experienced officer track."  he said, shaking his head, while leaning back.

"So I tried to look up your academy record.  There is very little in the way of science-based courses.  Just the required general science to graduate the academy on the Non-Commissioned track, which is honestly far less than required for cadets in the commissioned track.  I know we are on a tactical ship, doing tactical missions, but I am still a science officer." he said, crossing his arms.

"When I saw the transfer to science, I was shocked; I expected you to go back to Ops.  But now I am seeing something that concerns me.  Why does it show you choose science and not medical, or operations?"

=A= Oh, Saya said pausing in confusion. I thought... Yes, it's quite confusing. I don't know how to account for it.

She shook her head, even though she knew the commander couldn't see her. Pushing wisps of hair back from her face, Saya said, We'll keep searching for the problem. And I'd best make sure George is headed to the right place. I'll keep you updated, sir. =A=

Her badge chimed again almost immediately. =A= Uh, Chief, not sure where my head is, but the Romulan weapon thing is in the cargo bay, not the shuttle bay.

Yes, I was just reminded of that. Proceed with caution.

Ian found himself nodding as Addams spoke and it was somewhat of a relief to know he wasn't the only one with the constant feeling of repetition.

"You are nae the only one Mr Addams. I've had the impression that all this has happened before and all this will happen again. It's damned frustratin' ta ken summat isn't right and ta nae be able ta do anything about it or ever be sure it's real."

[USS Discovery - Deck One - Ready Room]

Torra sat, though with her long legs the chair was not half as comfortable as standing would have been.   She listened attentively, head cocked to the side slightly, as spoke about how well her exam went, then he went over what was in her service file.  Questioning her apparent department choice of Science.   

"I don't know sir, I didn't request a transfer of department.   I'm beginning to suspect that there is an administration error linking my name with perhaps another Danjar from my home upsol.  I can't explain it any other way.    I was initially Security on the Challenger sir.  And somehow got transferred to Discovery - in the Medical department.   A few months later, I did request a temporary move to Ops to help out a friend during our time in the Gamma quadrant while I continued with my virus research that I'd begun during our Iaba mission.   When that temporary Ops assignment was up I returned to Medical.  Then thinking I could be more useful as a Nurse or Field medic, I studied the medical field course intensively and challenged the Academy exam .. but haven't requested Science..." she clarified, a slight hesitation in her voice as she suddenly got a vague impression of what Science might be like for her..

Then because she didn't want him to think she was complaining, she quickly added. "I'm more than happy to be assigned to any department, sir.  Well, perhaps not Engineering.  I'm fine at taking things apart but struggle with the re-assembly."  She lowered her head a bit in embarrassment. "I thought I wasn't going to pass to Security because of the phaser rifle dismantle & assembly practicum."

She lifted her head after a moment to meet the Captain's eyes.  "As odd as it might sound, sir I'm actually grateful for the administration mix-up.   My people tend to plod along sedately in our chosen field of practice and live their life never experiencing much more than that day to day routine.  For some that is a beautiful way to live; but it wasn't for me, which is why I chose to enlist.    However, I too do tend to get into a routine - so happenstances like this are good for me.  It broadens my experience.   Unlike most humanoids,  we Grazerites only have about 15 to 20 years before we reach retirement age.  I'd like to fit in as much experience as I can during that time.  So though I hadn't requested Science... I'd welcome the opportunity to at least try my hand at it.  If that is permissible?  Unless I'm needed elsewhere of course."
