Mission: Where are we?

USS Ares Live Sim January 27, 2021

Sgt Major Calder Here too.. good to have three monitors

Attention On Deck

Capt_DevonCummings 3 off.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain AA x2
So where's the Merrimack?

Sgt Major Calder I can do four if you like

Capt_DevonCummings At the bottom of the river???

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Unknown

Capt_DevonCummings Greetings everyone. Hope you had a nice day today.
Michelle will be a little late but hopes to join us. Karlie is cleaning the house.

Matthew Edwards ::AA::

Sgt Major Calder Never pays attention

Matthew Edwards I've been busy packing. I'm moving this week to Vegas.

Capt_DevonCummings Good luck in moving.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Be careful and watch your money

Capt_DevonCummings Been to Vegas once a few years ago, went to the Star Trek once is enough for me.

Ens Gaavr Never in Vegas

Chef JC Gibbs ::aa::

IIII CaptainDevonCummings Okay

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain It's nickname isn't "Lost Wages" for nothing

Capt_DevonCummings An questions about the plot?

Matthew Edwards None sir

Ensign Chloe Waters None here.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain None sir

Ens Gaavr Let me look again, seems I have trouble with plots and attention
Seems alright.

Capt_DevonCummings The captain and Michelle are on the station.....Edwards is in command of Ares....the crew can do some maintenance while they wait...and security is posted in case any of the droids sneak aboard.
And on that note.....
Begin Sim

Ens Gaavr :: puts wireless earpods...err comm earpiece, playing no music, in his ear ::

Ensign Chloe Waters ::in sickbay::

Sgt Major Calder :: Has decided to walk the ship, first stop medical ::

Capt_DevonCummings ::On the station, with Michelle, walking with Krac.::

Matthew Edwards ::on the Bridge sitting in the chair::

Sgt Major Calder :: Enter medical, pulse rifle in hands :: Doctor.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain--in sickbay, making sure everything is ready for any drop-in patients

Capt_DevonCummings So, the Kuralin told me that you have seen strange ships.

Ensign Chloe Waters ::stares at the man so openly holding a weapon.

Capt_DevonCummings Krac: I have.

Ensign Chloe Waters Mandy> ::bolts, spooked::

Chef JC Gibbs ::Finishes the last of his dishes and heads to his quarters to have a drink::

Capt_DevonCummings Where was this?

Ens Gaavr Scanning the station for any loose signals, FTL or otherwise

Matthew Edwards Status report.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Seamus-- in main engineering, making sure that all internet output is at maximum performance

Ens Gaavr Nothing special on comms or my sensors Commander.

Capt_DevonCummings Krac>In an area that I call the ship graveyard. I've seen a bright flash, then a ship appears from nowhere.

::Watches the droids working.:: You built these machines?

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain-- greeting sgt.major, how may I help you?

Sgt Major Calder Sivian? :: looks around ::

IIII CaptainDevonCummings Krac>No, I found then on one of the ships in the graveyard. I reprogrammed them.

Sgt Major Calder Oh, there you are. I am just patrolling and wanted to check up on your security arrangements.

Capt_DevonCummingsB Can you tell me the coordinates of this graveyard?

Matthew Edwards Understood

Ens Gaavr :: keeps tabs on the Captain ::

Matthew Edwards Keep comms open on the Captain.

Capt_DevonCummings ::One of the droids hands Krac a tricorder with the coordinates of the graveyard.:: Krac>Here.

Nice station you have here. You get many ships docking?

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain-- I see, I usually keep my 'ears' open for anyone coming in, be it social or business

Ensign Chloe Waters Mandy> ::hiding from the major::

Sgt Major Calder Do you keep your hands on a pistol? Just in case?

Capt_DevonCummings Krac>Usually they come to buy supplies or to trade. Right now, you're the only ship here.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain --no I usually do not care for any version of firearms but the ahn woon is more than sufficient

Chef JC Gibbs ::looks out his window seeing the station:: Oh now thats different.

Ens Gaavr :: Nice strong signal to the Captain....Hmm ::

Capt_DevonCummings Well, thanks for the tour. We should be getting back to our ship. ::Holds up the tricorder.:: Thanks for this.

Krac>A word of advice, captain? Stay away from there. Many ships go to salvage what they can...few make it out alive.

::Nods:: We'll be careful. Let's go ensign.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain
Sivain-- gets a bowl of canine nutritional supplement number three, beef flavor and places it on the floor next to a large bowl of water for Mandy

Capt_DevonCummings Action: Cummings and Michelle head back to the docking port.
::Pulls his communicator.:: Captain to Ares. We are returning to the docking port.

Sgt Major Calder Maybe a kind of stun medication gun for this place. Could have applications.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Seamus-- goes through tracing and unusual fluctuation in the power connections to deal with while they have the time

Ens Gaavr +Captain+ Understood Captain.
+Captain+ Safe...walk?

Capt_DevonCummings ::Looks at the droids working...wonders if they could be used on a starship.::
+Ares+ Will do. Captain out. ::Closes the communicator.::

Ens Alexi Michelle ::follows the Captain with an eye still out for the little toad::

Ensign Chloe Waters Mandy> ::slowly draws near the food::

Matthew Edwards ::heads to the docking port to meet the Captain and Alexi::

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain-- an anesthetic dart gun might not be a bad idea if you want to play around with it I would not object

Ens Alexi Michelle Captain, I do not trust that he is telling the whole truth.

Capt_DevonCummings ::Reaches the docking port, and enters the Ares.:: Commander, we'll be leaving.

Sgt Major Calder I will look at designs. If there is nothing more.

Matthew Edwards Understood sir. How was it over there?

Capt_DevonCummings Ensign. I have to agree with you, but we have to follow this lead.

Matthew Edwards ::walks back to the Bridge with the Captain::

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain-- not unless you want to have your physical early

Capt_DevonCummings ::To Edwards:: Interesting setup he has going. I found those droids of his interesting..said he got them off a wreak.

Ens Alexi Michelle ::walks to the bridge with the Captain and XO:: Understood Sir.

Capt_DevonCummings But as the ensign said.....he's not to be trusted.

Sgt Major Calder I suppose I could get it out the way. :: Places his rifle on a nearby table ::

Capt_DevonCummings ::Hands the tricorder to the person at the helm.:: Make ready to separate from the station, then lay in these coordinates.

Helm>Aye sir.

Gaavr, open a channel to the station.

Ens Gaavr *:: nods :: Aye. :: A beat :: Channel open.

Ens Alexi Michelle ::Muses aloud:: I wish he had been a bit more forthcoming about that flash of light he claimed to have seen. It could have been a number of things, not the least of which is a wormhole of some sort.

Capt_DevonCummings Action> Unknown to the crew, one of the droids has slipped onboard the Ares.

Matthew Edwards Tactical Alert?

Sgt Major Calder Do I just sit on the bed Doctor?

Capt_DevonCummings ::Nods to Edwards.:: +Station+ Ares to station. We're ready to leave.

Ens Alexi Michelle ::moves to her station at Sec/Tac::

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain-- smiles and places his hand on the Sgt Major's shoulder for about ten minutes as he reads the SM's body-- you're doing very well for your age you could stand a little more exercise but I'm not going to insist upon it

LCARS Tactical Alert

Capt_DevonCummings Krac>Docking clamps released Ares. Safe voyage.

Ens Alexi Michelle ::brings the ship to a tactical alert:: Aye Sir
Shields and weapons on standby

Matthew Edwards ::nods and looks at the screen:: Helm, lay the course. Warp 3

Capt_DevonCummings Helm>We have cleared the station. 50 km from the station. Course laid in, sir.

Sgt Major Calder Not exactly a track or pool on this ship.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain-- besides I think they're singing your song with that alert

Capt_DevonCummings Action> The ship jumps to warp 3.

Sgt Major Calder Great.

Capt_DevonCummings The droid stays out of sight, moving through the access tubes.

Ens Alexi Michelle Long range scanner activated and clear at the moment

Ens Gaavr :: pipes in :: Subspace comms are clear ::

Chef JC Gibbs ::Watches the stars fly by sipping his beer::

Capt_DevonCummings If I remember my navigation from the early years, it will take 6 hours to get to this graveyard.

Sgt Major Calder :: Gets his rifle :: Maybe I get to sleep through the night, but probably not.

Matthew Edwards Keep an eye out Ensign. Gaavr, keep your ears open.

Ens Gaavr Oh, a comms officer joke.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Seamus-- keeps working on the power fluctuation

Chef JC Gibbs ::finishes his beer and then heads back to the kitchen putting coffee tea and water on a tray:::

Ensign Chloe Waters Doctor.

Capt_DevonCummings Action> The droid sets off an alarm in engineering.

Matthew Edwards Yes sir. I could use some chow myself. ::makes the announcement on the comm::

Ens Alexi Michelle Captain, we have an intruder alert in engineering, sending a team to investigate!

Sgt Major Calder :: Goes the the mess hall ::

Capt_DevonCummings Understood.

Ens Alexi Michelle ::relays orders to team Zeta to get to engineering and find the intruder::

Matthew Edwards ::stops and looks at Alexi:: Alert Security. I'm heading there. ::takes the turbolift to Engineering::

Chef JC Gibbs ::smiles as he watches his stewards setting out food various salads, friend chicken, chicken fried steak::

Ens Alexi Michelle ::merely smirks as she IS security::
