BRIDGE - SCIENCE STATION ONE

"Na'Shaya Captain," Inzjana answered back to her captain, with a nod.

Watching T'Ra move to ops, Inzjana was confused as to why the captain of the Discovery wasn't actually in the command chair but in the spirit of 'there must be a logical reason', Inzjana decided not to query it.

Inzjana, in response to captain Jones' question began scanning for any engine emissions as well as trying to clear up the largely garbled transmission but was clearly coming from a subspace emergency channel.

"Acknowledged captain...sensors detect impulse wake bearing One, Two, Seven mark Five, Four. Distance; Point Two Five light years."

The female shook her head as denying that she needed help.

"Oh, Come on... Look—-" he was cut off by a small chirp from the DATA pad he had tucked in his cargo pocket.

"Jaeger, plot a course one-two-seven mark five-four. How long will it take at maximum warp for us to get there?" Alex stood, taking a few steps forward until he was behind the helm officer before turning to Inzjana. "Is there any way to clear up that message so we know what we'll be running into?"

Nevir was pleased seeing Inzjana getting settled in and starting immediately, and he had to admit, he was also curious about this signal.  Especially more so now that it was a distress signal. 

"Check to see if it has any Federation frequencies." he said, going over and standing back the Captain's seat.  He was unsure whether to take it, considering that T'Ra was technically on the bridge... even if she was pretending to be an ops officer currently.

"Captain..." he said, not sure exactly what to ask... is she going to take her chair, or stand at ops?  Nevir was frankly confused.

BRIDGE - SCIENCE STATION ONE

"Unfortunately Lieutenant Commander, the message has been garbled by gamma radiation," Inzjana replied to Wu and just as she was about to turn back to her instruments along came another question from the XO, she was apparently in demand today.

[Bridge] 

Nevir was pleased seeing Inzjana getting settled in and starting immediately, and he had to admit, he was also curious about this signal.  Especially more so now that it was a distress signal. 

"Check to see if it has any Federation frequencies." he said, going over and standing back the Captain's seat.  He was unsure whether to take it, considering that T'Ra was technically on the bridge... even if she was pretending to be an ops officer currently.

"Captain..." he said, not sure exactly what to ask... is she going to take her chair, or stand at ops?  Nevir was frankly confused.

Inzjana turned around to look at the commander, stating, "The message's subspace protocol is degraded along with the message...but from what I can make out, there is a federation signature, although given the interference..." Inzjana trailed off, not wanting to hazard a guess.

Of course, as any space traveller knows, space is cold, near to absolute zero in point of fact, unless near to a star or other form of optimal mass. And seeing as all spacecraft burn fuel and use power, they give off a tremendous amount of thermal radiation, making them completely visible to sensors.
Unfortunately this wasn't going to help them much as all electromagnetic waves propagate at the speed of light or slower and they were at warp. But Inzjana had an idea to use subspace itself to determine what type of ship they were heading for, well at least it's mass-shadow anyway.

All spacecraft in the universe using a warp drive run on the same principle: At warpspeed, the starship is not travelling faster-than-light, that would be impossible. It is space itself that is moving faster-than-light because unlike mass, space has no speed limit. But in order to circumvent the light barrier, the warp drive must use negative energy to to compress spacetime in front of the ship and expand it behind. Negative energy has a negative pressure density allowing a ship to seem to achieve the impossible and does so via the Casimir Effect. It was found long ago that negative energy exists in subspace, the dimensional realm that exists under normal spacetime and has a warped geometry.

Starships that use warp drive require a subspace bubble, or warp bubble as it is also referred to. This protrusion in to subspace would obviously produce a measurable effect.

Inzjana measured the subspace warp frequencies and had her answer. "Commander," Inzjana called, motioning to the screen with her left hand.

Nevir resisted the urge to groan as Adams made it to the bridge and brought with him the typical boisterous demeanor of an intergalactic bush pilot.  He ignored the question about who was in command, instead opting for what the Captain said and taking a seat... or at least he would had Inzjana not called him over.  At Adams's last joke, Nevir turned to him.

"Mr. Adams, just the work, please.  I can assure you, we have trained officers who have assured us that all systems are normal."

Walking over to the science station, he looked over the CSO's shoulder, trying to get a sense of what she was talking about, and why she called to him.  He followed her gaze to the screen, and raised his eyebrows.  "That's Federation alright... not Starfleet.  It's.... Vulcan?"

"See what you can do to get any clearer picture on the signal.  See if you can find a registry.  Captain... if this is a Vulcan signal, it can't be broadcasting that... fish thing.  Recommend going to Yellow Alert?"

"Or if it is, then something has gone very wrong." Alex muttered, frowning at the viewscreen. So much for our uneventful trip home. Feeling perturbed that they had so many misadventures recently and were most likely flying into another one, he instinctively reached down, squeezing Ardyn's shoulder before leaving the helm and heading to Ops, joining T'ra and Addams. "Fish? Tartar sauce?" Alex queried quietly, glancing at Jones. "Captain, could this be a similar case to the polywater incident?"

"Acknowledged Commander," Inzjana stated, doing as ordered.


"Don't Panic! Mr. Addams," Inzjana commented after Addams spoke.

Inzjana surprised herself, making a joke in reference to the song at the end of the degraded message being, 'So long and thanks for all the fish' a song from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Professor Andre Offenbach one time, made Inzjana and a friend of her's and fellow cadet, Natasha Delacroix play the Holodeck version with him. Andre is like that, he always distilled a sense of wonder in all the students of his class at Starfleet Academy. Along with his eccentricities. His favourite bit was the Infinite Improbability Drive of the starship Heart of Gold. After going through the entire program, with Inzjana saying "Illogical" although secretly enjoying herself and Natasha wanting to play it again. Thankfully it was just that one time.

Last Inzjana heard Natasha was dropped out of science and went in to flight, or security, Inzjana wasn't sure, because Natasha wasn't sure herself.

After a moment, Inzjana had ran the special filter she had made when the last time they had received a degraded message.

"Captain, Commander, this is the best I can do," Inzjana stated, "I shall play it on the main viewer."

"My apologies Captain...I was referencing the song 'so long and thanks for all the fish', the last part of the message. It is from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. As the author explains, the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy outsold the Encyclopaedia Galactica largely because it was cheaper, but also because it had on it's cover the phrase: Don't Panic! Written in large friendly letters. It is a book series written in the Earth year 1985 called The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. My Professor at the Academy had the Holonovel version ma'am," Inzjana stated stoically.

Inzjana turned back to her UI somewhat embarressed by her out-of-character referencing of a Holonovel, but it was one of Andre's favourites so she couldn't help but remember those times. As well as his extensive knowledge of science, he taught Inzjana one more important life lesson and that was to not take everything so seriously. A bit of humour can be good for you, he had told her while playing with a Yoyo.
