View Full Version : Star Trek: Maverick_ RPG *Positions always open!*
9th Jan 2008, 12:25 PM
Capt. Patton: Mm, Romulan Ale... Too bad I'm giving it up during the pregnacy.
Goodbyes were said to Lennox, who began his walk to the Holosuites when someone called his name.
Katian: Lennox! *running up* Where have you been? You've got ten minutes to get there...
9th Jan 2008, 12:31 PM
Lennox: I know dearest... I was a witness for Alex and Patton's wedding. I'm ready, I just need to change clothes.
Anastasia: Ahh, well you give it up for a good reason then, captain. I'm just so happy for both of you.
Riddle: Well, I never dreamed that I would have you present at my wedding Anastasia.... nor did I dream that I would have such a beautiful and intelligent bride as Sara.
Sharpp looks between the two of them suspiciously. He decides that they will be fine so long as they don't find out to much.
Sharpp: No, not right now, I will let you know if we do. *taps com badge* Sharpp to sh'Raazh, we need to talk.
9th Jan 2008, 12:46 PM
((ooc: I'm going to leave you all, see you later))
Thelin: Understood Sir.
Both engineers resume their working feeling suspicious about the lieutenant's plans. Tigan is still wondering why lieutenant Sharpp and ensign Vixya were working on such a complicated piece of bio-engineering. Crewman Er-Gon joins the two engineers to discuss his findings with them, unaware of what has just happened.
Crewman Er-Gon: I'm afraid I have some bad news, the explosion released some unknown corrosive component that is eating it's way through the affected decks. None of the debris is salvageable, I have also alerted the ground teams to check for it and contain it.
Ensign Thelin: Great more bad news and mystery.
PO Tigan: Good thinking Crewman, please bring Lt. Woods up to date.
Crewman Er-Gon: Aye sir
sh'Raazh: acknowledge Lieutenant Sharpp, I'm on my way. *turns to Richie* sorry darling duty calls, you can join us if you want.
9th Jan 2008, 12:58 PM
Capt. Patton: Thank you, Alex. And I couldn't have dreamt of a more handsome, loving man like you...
Kati smiles brightly as they walk, the fight momentarily forgotten.
Katian: So they got around to it... I'm happy for them, Alex is a good man.
*Loug's Holosuite Palace*
Two Klingon warriors lead Valkris to the holosuites. He seemed neutral, not a trace of emotion.
Mara: Has the Klingon been prepared?
Klingon: Yes. He has been giving the proper instuctions and subdermal implant.
Mara: Good. But keep your voice down. The Android should be on his way...
Lt. Kimble: Sure. But would I have to extract a computer from some corspe's skull?
9th Jan 2008, 01:09 PM
They walk into ten forward, still wearing their dress uniforms, being trailed by the rather oddly dressed Anastasia. Everyone looks at them strangely as they take a table towards the back of the room.
Lennox shows up exactly on time. He is dressed in plan black, starfleet tactical garb.
Lennox: *whispers to Katian* Don't they seem a bit calm for Klingons?
9th Jan 2008, 01:24 PM
*Loug's Holosuite Palace*
Katiain: *whispering* Definetly... A hell of a lot quieter than earlier...
Mara:Android! We've taken the liberty of renting the 'suite and your opponet awaits.
Valkris tilts his head in their direction, the same blank look.
Mara: Take a moment to say farewell to your mate. It'll be the last oppurtunity...
9th Jan 2008, 01:29 PM
Lennox suppresses the urge to laugh and turns to Kati.
Lennox: I will see you after the match, darling.
He follows the Klingon into the suite and stands face to face with the very quiet opponent. If given the request to identify the android, one would certainly chose Valkris over Lennox.
A bat'leth appears out of thin air for each of them, and they take their respective weapons and begin to circle one another, the match begins.
9th Jan 2008, 01:40 PM
Valkris moves stiffly, no anger, no passion. It was like he was only going through the motions. He makes the first move, swinging the bat'leth high. It was easily blocked by Lennox, and Valkris moves lower quickly. A lesser opponet would have lost the use of his leg, but the Android moved faster than the eye could follow and blocked again.
Valkris thrusts the blade towards the abdomen while sidestepping a simmilar move...
*Outside the Holosuite*
Mara: *quietly* Activate.
Valkris lunged out and grabbed Lennox by the shoulder. Before he could pull away, a microscopic needle injects into the Android's skin. The Klingon pulled away just as Lennox slashed his forearm.
9th Jan 2008, 01:57 PM
Lennox feels the faint, almost static puncture in his skin.
Lennox: What the hell...
Lennox moves to fight back and slashes the klingon across the chest. He feels himself loosing control of his motor functions, everything is becoming blurry and... this was a familiar feeling. The room is spinning around him and just as he is about to brace himself against a holographic rock, "WOOSH!" the tip of his opponent's bat'leth breaks through his chest cavity, and knocks him to the floor. Valkris pulls his glade from his chest, and still holding his blade, Lennox sits up and takes the Klingons feet from under him.
9th Jan 2008, 02:18 PM
*Outside of Holosuite*
Mara and the other Klingons talk quietly amongst themselves. After a moment, they just walk away without even looking back. Katian realized something was wrong and went to open the 'suite.
Valkris falls on his back, shudders momentarily, then is still. The door to the holosuite opens and Katian steps inside.
Katian: Lennox? *sees the pink blood* Gods, Lennox!
9th Jan 2008, 02:25 PM
Lennox is still sitting on the floor and bleeding out everywhere. It looks like he severed at least one of the Klingon's feet, so not all of the blood is his own.
Lennox:*meekly* There is something wrong... Katian, they did something. its happening again, please help...
Then, as it always happened before, Lennox's systems shut down as the new commands were being written into his programming. The android is unconscious on the floor, but far from dead.
9th Jan 2008, 02:30 PM
Katian went to Lennox's side and hit his combadge.
Katian: Holosuite to Sickbay! There's an emergency! Lennox is hurt!!
She cradels his head and waits for a response.
9th Jan 2008, 02:41 PM
A few moments later, a medical team from the maverick is dispatched and Dr. Glover, four medics, and Crewman Gore, an engineer, appear in the holosuite. The engineer scans the android and Glover examines the wound site.
The medics attend to the fallen Klingon who is shortly pronounced dead at the scene. But from what their tricorder readings tell them, his death was not caused by blood loss, but rather some kind of neurological problem. They make a note of this before taking him to the morgue.
Glover: This would have been fatal in most organic beings, but there is minimal damage, besides that to his left lung and circulatory regulator... In face, I'm not sure why he is unconscious.
Gore: I'm not sure either, sir. There's no damage to his bioneural circuitry.
Glover: Well, In any case, we better get him to sickbay.
9th Jan 2008, 02:52 PM
Katian: He said they did something to him...
Crewman Gore: *shrugs* I'm not decting anything.
Dr. Glover: *to Katian* I'm sorry, Ma'am but you'll have to walk back. *taps combadge* Transporter, three to Sickbay...
9th Jan 2008, 03:03 PM
EMH: Oh what did he do this time? They should never let that android leave his quarters, none the less give him a medical license.
Glover: Nothing too serious, doc. Just get me a tissue regenerator.
EMH: *groans* I'm a doctor, not a butler!
Glover: Fine, computer, deactivate EMH. Medic! Get me a tissue regenerator.
9th Jan 2008, 03:14 PM
Patton sat with a glass of tea while Riddle and his sister worked on the bottle of Romulan ale. At least one of them would be sober. Alex truly was happy to talk with Anastasia again. They were close...
Capt. Patton: Alex, didn't you mention that you're twins?
9th Jan 2008, 03:21 PM
Riddle: *smiles* Yes, Stasia is the oldest though.
Though they were fraternal twins, there was a strong resemblance. They were both graced with the same tall, slender stature, dark hair, pale skin, and piercing blue eyes. Though one could almost make out a faint romulan forehead ridge on Anastasia, though this is perhaps only accentuated by her lack of hair, because Alex posses it too, but its the type of thing not normally noticed without close inspection.
9th Jan 2008, 03:33 PM
Capt. Patton: The older, hm? Tell me, did you pull your share of pranks on poor Alex? Those are stories I'd love to hear...
A nurse ushered Katian to the waiting lounge when she tried to go to Lennox. That made Kati angry, but she complied and sat rigid on the couch. The nurse did promise to send someone to get her when the medics were done... But it wasn't the same...
9th Jan 2008, 03:55 PM
Anastasia: *laughs* Year right, don't let him fool you. He was an evil little troll when we were kids!
Riddle: I was evil? You're the one who put my favorite stuffed animal in that wood stove!
Anastasia: Yeah, because you cut off my hair while I was sleeping!
Riddle: Only because you rewrote that homework file and sent it to our teacher!
Anastasia: It's not my fault that she didn't think it was funny when you called her "jello butt".
After Dr. Glover finishes the tissue regeneration, she switches Lennox back on and he sits up in a rather mechanical way and looks around.
Lennox: Than you doctor. I really should be going.
Glover: Not so fast, you need to be under observation-
Lennox: *jumps off the table* I give the orders here. Now carry on.
The android leaves sickbay and everyone looks a bit shocked. Even Lennox is as he walks away. He has no control of his body of movements, his consciousness is locked away to some small part of his mind while some alien presence operates his body now. He just watches in terror as it moves about smoothly, pretending to be him. Just like when he was in the internment camp. Just like when he was forced to kill Taya. Daro had to be behind this, but why? In any case, there is nothing he can do. His body takes him back to his quarters and he tries desperately to grasp a hold and stop it.
9th Jan 2008, 04:03 PM
Sara leans back and sips her tea. She'd let them argure over who was the evil little troll...
Capt. Patton: *snickers quietly* Jello butt...
Nurse: Miss Ryoux? Doctor Lennox is awake.
Katian: *stting up* Can I see him?
Nurse: I'm sorry, but he left as soon as he was reactivated...
Katian: Oh. Thank you, Nurse... Computer? *computer beep* Where is Doctor Lennox?
Computer: Doctor Lennox Is In Crew Quarters 1778-A3.
9th Jan 2008, 04:03 PM
((ooc: So Daro's plan B has been set in motion :lol: ))
Ensign Tahlandi is now meeting with the Bajoran cook Dakin and the botanist Minousche.
Minousche: I've been thinking about the flower arrangements, I'm thinking white roses.
Ensign Tahlandi: sounds good to my, what about the food Slevin?
Slevin: I'm thinking some sort of Tapas.
Ensign Tahlandi: Fine, now I just need to find the captain to get her approval for all this. Thank you all very much.
Ensign Tahlandi stands up with the two civilians and heads towards Ten Forward, he passes Doctor Lennox who looks in a hurry but the young ensign doesn't think anything about it.
9th Jan 2008, 04:15 PM
*Kati and Lennox's Quarters*
Lennox steps out of the shower and starts to put on his uniform. Lovecraft apparently has taken a break from the kittens and begins purring against his legs as he combs his hair. He kicks the animal out of the way and walks into the main room.
Lennox: *in Patton's voice* Computer, access ships security logs for stardates 2398.007 through 2398.12, clearance code Patton alpha seven three seven two omega one.
Riddle: Don't listen to her, Sara...tormenting me was a personal hobby of hers.
Anastasia: Right, like you were some kind of saint. Still, even then you always loved your bizarre little science projects.
9th Jan 2008, 04:21 PM
Capt. Patton: Oh? Don't tell me... You tried to build a warp core out of things around the house.
Katian steps off the 'lift and walks the short distance to their quarters. The door was locked. Strange... She entered her access code. Nothing. What was going on?
Katian: *presing door chime* Lennox?
9th Jan 2008, 04:24 PM
Ensign Tahlandi enters Ten Forward and spots the captain with Lt. cmdr. Riddle and his sister clearly engaged in a private moment. Well better not to disturb her now, so he takes a seat at the bar and orders a yumyum stick.
9th Jan 2008, 04:41 PM
Riddle: Actually, I was trying to clone our pet sehlat, Coco, with objects from around the house... I always preferred chemistry. And while I was doing that, Stasia was devising new and creative ways to make weapons.
Anastasia: I suppose I was always the more Romulan of the two of us.
Riddle: *awkward silence* Yes, I suppose so.
Anastasia: Oh don't tell me you're still ashamed of our heritage, brother! Let me guess, no one here knows you're part Romulan.
Riddle: Not so loud! *serious* I am not ashamed of anything, its just dangerous times to me part....
*Katian and Lennox's Quarters*
Lennox can hear Katian outside and wants to tell her whats happening. But, instead he goes to the door and opens it, blocking the entrance as he glares down at the El Aurian woman. "Not again, please not again!" he thinks.
Lennox: What is it?
Cat is still sitting alone as she swills her rum and coke, a very old earth drink. She see is bored and sees Talhandi at the bar and decides to go see if he wants some company.
Cat: Hiya, mind if I join you?
9th Jan 2008, 04:51 PM
Tahlandi: Please do, I'm Tahlandi Rann, but since we are of duty call me Rann. What's your name?
Tahlandi is glad with the company maybe it can take his mind of the recent events and Edo. Tahlandi begins to think he is jinxed in matters of the heart. His first love drowned and just that he thought he found new love, that person ends up in a coma. If he hadn't been so busy last few days, he probably would have a meltdown. For now he is holding up all right, organizing the memorial takes up most of his time and gives him a sense of purpose in all this insanity. He absentmindedly takes a bite from his yum yum stick.
sh'Raazh: I hope not.
As usual sh'Raazh misses the joke, humor wasn't exactly her strong suite. Both officers leave for engineering.
9th Jan 2008, 05:02 PM
*Katian and Lennox's Quarters*
Katian: Um... *blinks* You left Sickbay before I could see you... *pauses* Are you all right? You had me worried...
Sara places her hand over Alex's and gives it a sympathetic squeeze.
Capt. Patton: True... But I still stand by my word. I will not tollerate racist attitudes on this ship. We can move above and beyond that...
9th Jan 2008, 05:16 PM
*Katian and Lennox's Quarters*
Lennox doesn't blink at all as he stares blankly at Katian.
Lennox: I am fine. Please leave.
Riddle: I know Sara, but still, its not something I have ever made a habit of disclosing.
Anastasia: Always staying on the side of caution, eh? The Romulans have a saying, "Never tell lies which you can not prove to be true".
Cat: Oh, I'm Nori Cat, but you can call me Nori... isn't Rann your last name?
9th Jan 2008, 05:22 PM
*Katian and Lennox's Quarters*
Katian stares at Lennox, frowning and suspicious of this odd behavior.
Katian: Leave? What are you doing? *pauses* You're not fine... I'm getting help...
9th Jan 2008, 05:27 PM
Tahlandi: *smiles* No, it's my first name, it's Bajoran in origin. Well to make a long story short I was adopted by a Bajoran family. I'm what they call a Cardassian war orphan.
9th Jan 2008, 05:30 PM
*Katian and Lennox's Quarters*
He grabs her wrist and pulls her into the room, the door locks behind them and he throws her to the floor.
Lennox: Do not struggle, or I will just have to kill you.
Katian tries to get up and he grabs her by the hair and flings her into the wall like a rag doll.
Lennox:*with a strange calm* Did I tell you to move, El Aurian?
Cat: Oh, of course... I'm familiar with the phrase. I'm from Ishoka V, we've been members of the federation for almost sixty years, but no one seems to know who we are. *laughs* So, I'm a medical technician, what do you do?
9th Jan 2008, 05:37 PM
Tahlandi: *laughing* Well I'm an experimental psychologist, and you know the Federation is so big you can't blame people that they forget a member species or two.
9th Jan 2008, 05:45 PM
Cat: I know, but people have heard of Andorians, Humans, Vulcans, Bolians, even the obscure species like the J'naii, Suliban, Benzites... but never the Ishonai. No matter where I go, they always say "so where are you from?" Sorry... its just a pet peeve.
9th Jan 2008, 05:46 PM
(OO: I will be back later.)
9th Jan 2008, 05:52 PM
((ooc: A disgruntled background species, hillarious :D))
Ensign Tahlandi: I can see how that gets annoying but to be honest I don't know that much about your home world maybe you should enlighten this ignoramus
9th Jan 2008, 07:01 PM
*Katian and Lennox's Quarters*
Katian hits the wall with a bone-breaking thud. She felt something crack in her side, the pain was horrible. It was difficult to even breath...
She made a few strangled noises and choked cries. Something wet runs across her face. She was bleeding from the scalp, as well...
9th Jan 2008, 11:35 PM
Cat: Well... we're a egalitarian society, very nationalistic with a coalition government. Every able bodied person is drafted into the national defense force at age fourteen. We remain on active duty for two years. At that point, we can go on inactive duty and pursue other interests, or remain in the military... We don't ever fight anyone, though. We haven't had a war in over two hundred years.
*Katian and Lennox's Quarters*
The android moves silently, never letting Katian out of his sight. Lennox has done his best to shut himself off from what his body is doing, but is mostly unsuccessful, he just prays that he doesn't hurt Kati anymore.
He walks to the replicator and punches in an order at incredible speed while he watches Katian, hunched in the floor. He goes back to her with a metal cable in hand. He grabs her shoulder and shoves her onto the floor and ties her arms behind her back.
Lennox: Remember, fight and I will kill you. Now get up.
He pulls her to her feet and leads her into a closet, completely ignoring her obvious pain. Again he throws her against the wall, being quite careless with his android capabilities.
Lennox: The only reason I haven't killed you is because you might be of use to me yet. Computer, lock closet door. Set access code to Lennox 1715739AAP0N9134560IMK.
9th Jan 2008, 11:43 PM
Tahlandi: It's good to see that nationalism can be a positive thing, for most species it ends in war and xenophobia. Look at what the Cardassians did in the name of their empire.
Tahlandi notices the bitterness in his own voice, he hated Cardassian philosophy and the pain it caused so he had a mostly dim view of what nationalism meant. It was refreshing to see a species that none the less of their strong sense of national pride and militarism can overcome it's own limitations and be a cooperative member of a vast organization that houses all sort's of religions, different species and very different outlooks on life.
9th Jan 2008, 11:50 PM
Cat: Well... the problem with the cardassians is that they spend all their time trying to legitimize their government and their cause. Their people are the government, on Ishoka V, our government IS the people.... If that makes any sense.
9th Jan 2008, 11:51 PM
*Katian and Lennox's Quarters*
Katian: *slowly* I... *coughs* Wouldn't fight you... *continues to cough*
The closet door shuts off anything, else even light and minimal air.
9th Jan 2008, 11:58 PM
*Katian and Lennox's Quarters*
Lennox finishes reading the rest of the security logs, which takes all of thirty seconds. First things first, he needs to find Lenore's remains.
He finds out that they are being stored in a secured area on the bottom deck. He needs to access it immediately.
Riddle: Its really a shame Lennox couldn't make it...
Anastasia: *laughs* He's probably off doing something more fun.
Riddle: And what does that mean?
10th Jan 2008, 12:03 AM
Sara snorts into her tea and smiles.
Capt. Patton: It probably means he's not sitting around with his brother and wife talking about their childhood... Or he's performing another autopsy. Which is it, Anastasia?
10th Jan 2008, 12:04 AM
Tahlandi: Yes it does I think, maybe you should teach Cardassians a lesson in how to govern a nation. So what made you decided to enlist in Star Fleet?
Lt. jg. Caeli is trying to restore the lost files, whomever attacked Lt. Li had also done a thorough job of erasing several critical files. Their entire political database was in shambles. Caeli tries a new algorithm designed by ensign Thelin hoping it would restore at least some of the lost files.
Caeli: *taps combadge* Ensign Thelin please report to Strategic ops.
Thelin: sorry Sir, it will have to wait we are busy reinforcing the structural integrity of Deck 15.
Caeli: Understood report to my as soon as you can
Caeli wonders what his buddy Zan is doing, probably searching for the lunatics responsible for this mess.
10th Jan 2008, 12:22 AM
Cat: I don't know really, I guess after being in the defense force for two years, I really loved being in a military organization, I was a medic there too... but it was boring. We mainly did routine security and police and medical calls. I suppose I was just drawn by the glamor and excitement of starfleet. My mother was an engineer on the Enterprise D and I grew up hearing stories about it.
Anastasia: Oh, he's probably just getting laid! Those androids are regular chick magnets. The sad thing is that they don't even notice and couldn't care less.
Riddle: I take it you have known androids?
Anastasia: Oh, believe it or not, the Romulans are experts in cybernetics. Of course, they treat their androids as slaves...
Lennox steps onto the turbolift where Crewman Sorid is already standing.
Sorid: I'm glad to see you're feeling better, sir.
Lennox is silent and an awkwardness fills the air.
Sorid: Ummm... is everything alright sir?
Lennox: Everything is fine. No more questions.
Lennox steps out of the turbolift at his stop, leaving the Suliban, unconscious and in a puddle of blood behind him on the lift.
10th Jan 2008, 12:28 AM
Tahlandi: The missions of captain Jean Luc Picard, I met him once while he was attending a guest seminar at the Academy. He's a fascinating man.
MCPO Vado: Doctor Lennox is everything all right *noticing the blood* Sir what happened?
10th Jan 2008, 12:34 AM
Cat: *laughs* A bit too stuffy for my liking, but defiantly a good leader. My mom talked about him quite a bit, but she talked the most about Captain Riker, apparently she was quite taken with him.
Lennox stops and stares the Bolian in the eyes.
Lennox: An accident, call for a medical team, immediately.
10th Jan 2008, 12:43 AM
Tahlandi: I never understood his appeal with women, but than again he is so not my type.
Vado senses that there is something wrong and tries to hold the Android there.
Vado: Shouldn't you be attending to it Sir, seeing you are a doctor. *meanwhile her hands go towards her phaser.* Maybe you should wait for the medical team to arrive to make sure everything is all right Sir.
10th Jan 2008, 12:45 AM
Lennox: I simply do not have time for that.
The android reaches and uses a Vulcan nerve pinch officer. After which, he continues his trek.
Cat: Yeah, me neither... I prefer holograms.
10th Jan 2008, 12:58 AM
Vado drops down like a rag doll, her phaser rolling away from her limp body. Blue blood trickles from her mouth, Lennox's incredible strength has caused her collarbone to fracture and she has passed out from a combination of the nerve pinch and the pain.
Tahlandi: Holograms, intriguing.
10th Jan 2008, 01:10 AM
Capt. Patton: Hm...
Sara sips her tea as a few thoughts start swirling in her mind.
Capt. Patton: You wouldn't happen to have any technical expertise with Romulan Androids, would you?
10th Jan 2008, 01:25 AM
Anastasia: Oh, I might know a thing or two... But mainly how to destroy them.
Riddle: Of course. Why am I not surprised?
*Storage locker 238 B*
Lennox enters the vault, at long last. He, once again, used the captains security codes. The real Lennox is screaming at the top of his lungs, but the new Lennox faximily now occupying his body ignores him. It illudes him how, but they have managed to create two personalities within him. One was apparently lacking all ethical subroutines and on a mission from hell, the other, locked away in some tiny portion of the positronic net.
He goes to the stasis chamber and opens it. All of Lenores limbs are dismembered and laying in the correct order. He uses a kit he picked up at the nearest engineering console and works feverishly to repair her head to a point where it will function.
After several minutes of tinkering, her neon green eyes spring open.
Lenore: *distorted* Not exactly the face I expected to see. Finally come to your senses, Lennox?
Lennox: I am not Lennox... or at least not the one you know. He is cowering in some tiny portion of my positronic matrix. I have come to rescue you.
10th Jan 2008, 01:30 AM
Capt. Patton: Interesting... It just so happens we may have one is custody. She attempted to hijack the ship, and when that didn't work, blow it up. This was what, a week and a half ago? She's still dismembered in a containment vault...
10th Jan 2008, 01:39 AM
Anastasia: And to think, I missed all the excitement.
*over the comm* Shashar to captain Patton. Two people have been attacked on the lower decks and are in sickbay. They say that Dr. Lennox, of all people, did it.
Riddle: Oh for the love of logic... why now?
10th Jan 2008, 01:45 AM
Patton stood without thinking and tapped her combadge as she strided to the door.
Capt. Patton: How reliable are those reports?
Lt. Cmdr Shashar: *over comm* Very, the sensors confirm his presence at the attack scenes.
Capt. Patton: Locate and isolate Lennox with a Level Ten field and send a team to his location.
Lt. Cmdr. Shashar: Aye, Captain.
10th Jan 2008, 02:04 AM
*Storage locker 238 B*
Lennox moves and hits a forcefield. He searches through his kit for something to disrupt the field.
Lenore: What, can't you get out?
Lennox: Shut up, I'm working.
a moment later, a security team, armed with phasers covers the entrance of the vault.
T'lei: Put the equiptment down and surrender, doctor.
Lennox: *snarls* You're lucky I don't kill you all!
T'lei: Put it down, now!
Lennox still refuses to comply, so the vulcan sets her phaser on wide beam stun.
*T'lei: Computer, release forcefield, code T'lei alpha 371 *fires*
The stun disables the android and sends the fragile head of Lenore back into the abyss.
Dammers: How do we turn him off? We shouldn't take any chances.
10th Jan 2008, 02:09 AM
*Storage Locker 238-B*
Patton and Riddle, still in dress uniform, march into the locker.
Capt. Patton: *to Shashar* Lieutenant, report!
Lt. Cmdr. Shashar: Sir, we've disabled Doctor Lennox. It looks like he was trying to repair the female android. We're trying to come up with a way to deactivate him...
Capt. Patton: Alex, your familar with the Doctor's systems, right? How do we turn him off?
10th Jan 2008, 02:24 AM
*Storage Locker 238-B*
Riddle kneels beside the fallen android and reaches to the side of his head to find the switch.
Riddle: There's a switch behind his left ear... got it. Why the hell was he trying to reactivate that battle drone?
10th Jan 2008, 02:35 AM
*Storage Locker 238-B*
Lt.Cmdr. Shashar: I don't know... Why the hell was he attacking people?
Patton steps closer and looks down at the now prone Doctor. Only an hour ago, he was a witness at their wedding. Then he goes on a killing spree? Things didn't make sense...
Capt. Patton: Secure him. And get an Engineering team, preferbly someone with experience in cybernetics...
10th Jan 2008, 02:45 AM
*Storage Locker 238-B*
Diez: Aye, sir, we'll take him to engineering.
Vixya and Sharpp look up from their research and luke warm cups of coffee to see Dr. Lennox being brought into engineering unconscious with a full security detatchment.
Vixya: What the...
The officers call over an engineer and begin having a very intent conversation around the deactivated android.
Lt. Lurek: Yes, we will take care of it. I have a degree in the area of cybernetics.
10th Jan 2008, 02:57 AM
10th Jan 2008, 07:37 PM
sh'Raazh and Kimble enter engineering not knowing what just happened with doctor Lennox.
sh'Raazh:*taps combadge* Ensign Zan as soon you have contacted 'your friend' please report back to me. I'll be in engineering. *notices the tumult and she turns to Sharpp* What's going on Lieutenant.
PO Tigan walks towards Lurek and the deactivated doctor
Tigan: Do you need help Lieutenant Lurek? Shouldn't we inform Lt. Woods, Sir.
10th Jan 2008, 11:12 PM
Raian had been a part of the team who had apprehended Dr. Lennox and was left a little flummoxed as to what the hell was going on. He got the message from sh'Raazh, whom he assumed was still in the lab and had not seen him enter, and tapped his own badge in reply.
Ensign Zan: Aye sir. The Athena should be docking with Starbase 194 in approximatley 50 minutes. Zan out.
He then glanced at the captain, who he noted was wearing her dress robes for whatever reason, and wondered if she had been alerted of the newest situation. He then looked down at the deactivated android and couldn't help but wonder why someone like him would act so grossly out of character.
10th Jan 2008, 11:20 PM
Off to the side, an alarm goes off. Doctor Glover goes to check what it was.
Dr. Glover: We have an emergency in Crew Quarters 1778-A3. Life signs are weakening... Somebody send the EMH, and get a medical team on his heels!
*Katian and Lennox's Quarters*
The EMH appears in the living room, medkit in hand.
EMH: Please state the nature of the medical emergency... *pauses* Hello? Is anyone here?
10th Jan 2008, 11:22 PM
sh'Raazh: Richie, I need to speak to Zan. Zan did you have any idea what he is hiding? I know Yulia's husband and I've been wrecking my brains about it, he doesn't seem the type *thinking but than again you never know for sure*
Kheyl: More bloodwine
Lirra: Cadets I'm cutting you off, shouldn't you all get to bed *smilling*
Slevin: Lirra have you seen Katian, she was supposed to back by now, for inventory remember.
Lirra: I Haven't seen her since she left to meet up with doctor Lennox.
Slevin: Oh, okay.
10th Jan 2008, 11:29 PM
T'rei had drank a considerable amount of bloodwine, for a species that as a whole very rarely consumes alchohol. She stands up rather shakily and looked over her fellow cadets.
Cadet T'rei: (slurring) She is right, for we have training to continue tomorrow. I bid you all good night.
As she stood up to leave, she walked but a few paces before stumbling. It seemed that she didn't hold her drink well as a result of the aforementioned teetotalness.
As Zan continued to stand with his fellow officers, he noticed sh'Raazh leave the lab and head in his general sort of direction.
10th Jan 2008, 11:41 PM
Freezal: Goodnight T'rei see you tomorrow in engineering *slurring*
Kheyl and Tobias are standing up but Tobias just falls back in his chair the Klingon cadet on the other hand is holding up quite well but than again he was used to consuming vast amounts of strong liqueur unlike his fellow cadets. Freezal manages to stand up somewhat gracefully all things considering.
Kheyl: Everything all right there T'rei, do you need help.
Slevin: oh for the love of the Prophets don't tell me we are going to get medics in here for some drunk cadets.
10th Jan 2008, 11:42 PM
Lt. Kimble: Sure, Tara. You go on ahead and play James Bond... I think I'll go listen in on the Android Incident...
Patton and Riddle stood off to the side of Lieutenant Lurek the Engineering team.
Capt. Patton: Preliminary dianostic, Lieutenant?
*Katian and Lennox's Quarters*
"Hello? Is anyone here?"
Katian forced her eyes open. It sounded like someone was yelling... She shifed closer to the door, pain erupting from her chest, and hit the closet door.
The EMH was scanning the quarters when a thumping came from a storage closet.
EMH: Hello? *stepping closer, scans with the tricorder* My god, someone's in there!
The EMH tries the manual release, but it was locked. He gets on one knee and leans into the door.
EMH: Can you hear me? *another thump* Just hold on, I'll get someone to help... *taps combadge* EMH to Sickbay, I need an Engineering team. There's someone trapped in a closet.
10th Jan 2008, 11:50 PM
The half vulcan initially declined the offered help insisting that she was indeed perfectly sober. In the end though, she found herself having to accept as she continued to stagger, but at least she could stand unlike some of her class mates.
*Nurse Frasier's Quarters*
Tiger meanwhile, felt better for her conversation with Raian but wondered if she was perhaps a little fast offering to share her quarters at this time. For now though, she found herself unable to sleep and so curled up on the couch with a contented looking Socks on her lap. She turned on the TV, a 21st century model she had replicated for herself, and began watching her favourite Tom and Jerry cartoons. Most people of course used the holodecks nowadays but she liked the comfort of being able to curl up and watch everything on a screen from time to time.
10th Jan 2008, 11:54 PM
Lt. Woods just entered engineering when he got the call of the EHM, his first day back turns out to be as hellish as the days before.
Lt. Woods: Understood. Zen, Mika and Thelin report to Doctor Lennox's quarters on the double
Thelin: Aye sir.
Lt. Lurek: There is something wrong with his positronic brain, I think, Tigan hand me that hypospaner.
Lt. Woods: Captain? What happened to our doctor?
sh'Raazh is nervous about letting Zan doing this mission, she hopes the ensign has the spirit of his former host Yulia, he seemed to be a gusty young fellow anyways. And because of his history with the Vulcan he was the best man for the job.
sh'Raazh: Are you up for it ensign, there isn't time for second guessing, you know.
*Lennox and Katian's quarters*
The three engineers and several medics arrive at the scene.
Ensign Zen: What is the problem doctor? Did you mention something about somebody being trapped in a closet.
Kheyl escorts his fellow cadets to their quarters, he actually had to carry Tobias who was so drunk he couldn't walk anymore, after they dropped him of they resumed their stagger towards the new temporary cadet quarters.
Freezal: Home sweet home. So you two in the morning
11th Jan 2008, 12:10 AM
Raian moved away from the others slightly as he spoke with sh'Raazh. He didn't really want anyone to overhear as he had already had one close shave that day. He couldn't help but let a little Yulia shine through as he spoke.
Ensign Zan: Shouldn't be a problem now that I've pulled myself together. I'm not sure if K'vor would really be involved in something like this but it all sounds very suspicious doesn't it? He definatley seems to know something that might help us anyway. I trust him for now, but I guess I'm a little biased. After all he was my husband. Speaking of which, I heard about your relationship with Lt. Kimble. I'm happy for you, as a junior officer now I don't get to hear these things!
11th Jan 2008, 12:16 AM
sh'Raazh: *smiles* Just be careful, it's strange I can see allot of Yulia in you like still wanting to meddle in my private life. But indeed as I said before I can hardly believe that K'vor is involved in something like this but watch your back former husband or not he could be dangerous.
11th Jan 2008, 12:28 AM
Raian opened his mouth to deny meddling but instead grinned rather broadly. It was true that Yulia had often commented on her friends private life as an attempt to discover why she was so angry all the time. She had eventually learned, rather painfully, that it was probably best left to professional counsellors. Still, she never denied that she had probably deserved that slap and had continued her friendship with sh'Raazh. He spoke again before rejoining the rest of the security team.
Ensign Zan: Right, my bad. I'll leave you to it then as it would be a shame to end up with a slap in this incarnation too, heh! Jokes aside, I'll let you know when I've spoken with him.
11th Jan 2008, 12:52 AM
((this is goodnight for me too))
sh'Raazh: Well you did, but I will always be grateful for what you did for my after my son died, Zan.
And with that she left the young ensign a little confused, Zan was somebody completely different but at the same time also very alike. She rejoins Lt. Kimble and wonders if she and Zan can rebuilt their friendship again.
*Lennox and Katian's quarters*
Ensign Thelin: manual overwrite isn't working, somebody has used a very complicated algorithm to block any attempt of freeing her.
Ensign Zen: Can you break the code?
Ensign Thelin: Probably but that is going to take several hours and according to the doctor her life signs are getting weaker.
PO Mika: We got try a more aggressive approach like forcing the door open with a controlled burst of phaser fire.
Ensign Zen: I don't know, it's not without it's dangers.
Ensign Thelin: Why don't we just transport her out?
PO Mika: impossible somehow the perpetrator has managed to put up a damping field around the closet.
Ensign Thelin: Why, how.
Ensign Zen: Think people, what about the magnetic unlocking devices?
PO Mika: doesn't work on these types of doors Zen.
Ensign Zen: Right, sorry it's just we need to get her out and fast.
Ensign Thelin: Let's try Mika's plan and cut our way through.
Ensign Zen: Okay, Ma'am you need to stay back we'll have you out in second.
The three engineers begin a series of controlled phaser bursts after what seems hours (in reality only a few seconds) the manage to get the door open
Thelin: Oh *as he sees the badly wounded Katian*
((ooc: you have my permission to use my engineers Tigan, Woods and Thelin to help doctor Lennox and progress his storyline, Tigan is a bio-engineer, Woods is an all round kinda guy and Thelin is mostly sensors and mathematics))
11th Jan 2008, 04:01 AM
*Katian and Lennox's Quarters*
The EMH and medics move forward to ease Katian out of the confined space. The holographic Doctor uses a laser scapel to remove the metal wire bindings from her wrists and assits in lifting her onto a antigrav strecher.
EMH: *scanning* Mutiple contusions, a serious concussion, four cracked ribs, two broken, one pireced her lung, internal bleeding... We have to get her into emergency surgery. Fast as you can...
Medic: Aye, Sir...
Lt. Kimble: *whispering, to sh'Raazh* I take it that went well...
Capt. Patton: Security caught him trying to reassemble that female Android. We're not sure why. He also attacked a few cremembers, killed one...
11th Jan 2008, 05:07 AM
Vixya and Sharpp watch from a distance, somewhat in awe as to Lennox's condition. Riddle, of course, is beside the captain, shaking his head in confusion.
Riddle: What happened that would make him do this? He seemed fine a few hours ago.
Lt. Lurek: I am uncertain...
The vulcan notices a strange piece of metal, barely protruding through the skin on the androids arm.
Lurek: His borg implants... of course. I think we are looking about this the right way. Since his neural net has been in know way externally altered, what if he was exposed to nanites? An android could be much more suseptable to this kind of exposure.
Gore: You think the borg are doing this?
Lurek: No *recalibrates tricorder and starts scanning* but the same principle could easily be employed by other races.
11th Jan 2008, 05:13 AM
Capt. Patton: Like the Romulan, Reman, and Cardassian alliance we've got attacking us...?
Lt. Lurek: *still scanning* Possibly...
Capt. Patton: Lennos didn't say where he was going when he left us... *to Riddle* Can't we find that out?
11th Jan 2008, 05:32 AM
Riddle: *frowns* Katian Ryoux would probably know. They live together, after all.
Lurek: I have located the nanovirus... it seems the have encoded new programing into his positronic matrix, overriding normal commands. Now it is a manner of erradicating it, hopefully not destroying him in the process.
Gore: Couldn't we override the virus? Sort of like an android immune system for nanites or something?
Lurek: Uncertain. However, these nanites seem to have built in trancievers, I am certain that they are being remotely controlled. If we could locate the proper subspace frequency, we might be able to overload their circuitry.... But I am not certain how that would effect the android.
11th Jan 2008, 05:43 AM
Capt. Patton: Do what you have to. Just try not to damage the Doctor too severly...
Patton and Riddle step to the side and allow the engineers to work.
Capt. Patton: Computer, locate Katian Ryoux...
Computer: *beep* Katian Ryoux Is In Sickbay.
Capt. Patton: Alex, you don't think...
11th Jan 2008, 06:28 AM
Riddle: Its certainly possible, we should try to talk to her.
The engineers concentrate on fine tuning their strange, lovecraftian devices. Riddled with tubes and twinkling lights, they adjust the supersonic frequencies and monitor the condition of the nanites.
A few minutes pass and the android jolts up from the table he is laying on, screaming, a blood curdling, inhuman sound. The engineers work to restrain him, but he reacts like a frightened animal, not at all an android typically reacts. They finally put a restraint field around him and he looks from person to person, starting to calm down.
Lennox: Where is Katian? Is she alright? I will kill them! I WILL KILL THEM ALL!
11th Jan 2008, 06:45 AM
Capt. Patton: Doctor, restrain your emotions! *takes a deep breath* Miss Ryoux is in Sickbay, we're not aware of her condition... Your programming was rewritten by foreign nanoprobes. Are you aware of what happened?
11th Jan 2008, 06:52 AM
Lennox: Yes! Damnit! I am all too aware! I saw all of it- please, you must let me get Katian out of that closet.
Riddle: Calm down, Lennox, she's in sickbay. What happened.
Lennox: It was that Klingon... it was Daro though, really. Even after all these years...
11th Jan 2008, 07:03 AM
Capt. Patton: Archron Daro... What Klingon? What did they do?
Dr. Glover: *over comm* Sickbay to Engineering. We need Doctor Lennox as soon as he can.
Capt. Patton: They may not be possible right now...
Dr. Glover: Captian. We could use the Doctor in Surgery, the patient's lungs are punctured.
Capt. Patton: *to Lennox* All right. You're needed, Doctor... Release him and send Secruity to escort.
11th Jan 2008, 07:22 AM
Lennox: *as he's leaving* Punctured lungs? By the prophets, no!
Lennox rushes into sickbay to see Glover and several other medical personnel standing over kati, who is bleeding and barely breathing on the operating table.
Glover: She was attacked, someone-
Sharpp: I know what happened! Just get me some epinephrine and a hypospanner! And get these f*****g security officers off my back!
11th Jan 2008, 11:48 AM
sh'Raazh: I hopes so.
After the engineers have finished with Doctor Lennox, Lt. Woods decides is time for a debriefing session. Before he was called back to engineering he was dealing with repair works of Deck 15, the simple truth was that they didn't have the time to make mistakes.
Lt. Woods: Who did the preliminary assessment of our doctor?
Gore: I did, Sir.
Lt. Woods: And you missed that his programming was rewritten by nanites. *angry* Explain yourself Crewman

Lt. Kimble: *whispering* I know it's all top secret, but you wanna tell me what that Ensign is up to, Imzadi?
Patton and Riddle left Engineering and made their way to Sickbay, albeit at a slower pace.
Capt. Patton: *sarcastic* So how are you enjoying your honeymoon so far?
11th Jan 2008, 03:27 PM
Lt. Woods: *beyond angry* Crewman Gore you are an incompetent foul, I have only two hands so when I send my engineers to do a job I expect them to do it well, is that understood Crewman. Lt. Lurek good pick up.
sh'Raazh: *whispering* the ensign is meeting up with his symbiont's former husband, we suspect he may have some answers on what is happening.
Bijaj: *over the combadge* Captain I thought I should inform you that Ensign Tahlandi has finished the preparations for the burial ceremonies. We should go over it as soon as possible, Bijaj out.

Capt. Patton: Understood, Commander. I'll contact the Ensign a.s.a.p.?
Cmdr. Bijaj: *over comm* Aye, Captain.
Capt. Patton: *to herself* So much fun to be had...
Crewman Gore: Yes, Sir...
Lt. Lurek: Your compliment is appriciated, Sir.
Lt. Kimble: Ah. Well, if you want a little empathic insight, your Ensign is a tad nervous about meeting his ex... And your a tad anxious, Tara.
11th Jan 2008, 06:52 PM
((ooc: Thanks for the compliment Moorespino :joy: you can find the skin, antlers, eyes and hair at http://www.parsimonious.org/))
sh'Raazh: Well I have a lot ridding on him and he's young and confused because of his joining Richie. And everything that could go wrong has gone wrong lately so yes I'm nervous.
Lt. Woods: You deserve the praise Lieutenant. I'd like you to monitor doctor Lennox for a while. Gore go and assist on deck 15 and try to keep your head on the job.
Lt. Woods sits down, his anger and frustration about what happened has tired him out, he is still not all there and taking it easy as the doctors suggested isn't working out seeing there is one crisis after the other.
11th Jan 2008, 06:58 PM
Lt. Lurek/Crewman Gore: *together* Aye, Sir.
Lt Kimble: I understand... *pauses, looks around* So. Anything else in Engineering? Some counter intelligence to gather?
11th Jan 2008, 07:02 PM
sh'Raazh: Well my dear Sharpp and Vixya were working on a device to detect spies, I think they are finished.
((ooc: last post for my today, going to a party but feel free to use my Characters if need arises to progress the story along))
12th Jan 2008, 03:03 AM
The beautiful thing about being an android is the ability to compartmentalize. For the brief time being, Lennox is able to completly ignore the fact that he, or at least some force occupying his body was the one who hurt Katian so badly to begin with. He is able to concentrate all of his efforts on saving her life. Twice now, twice he has caused harm to her, though not intentionally, she has ended up on this table twice.
Still, she will live once again. Live to fight another day, and as Lennox fastens the last suture a wave of grief, guilt, and relief washes over him. He just stares down at Katian. One tear breaks the dam and he is bawling over the body of his injured lover.
Sharpp and Vixya grudgingly look over their work. The device should be ready to transmit a signal to disrupt those of anyone else on board. Ultimately they designed it so that anyone with the device would suffer extreme pain and seizures. Nothing life threatening, but certainly severe enough to make things unbearable.
Vixya: This just all seems so wrong.
Sharpp: Well, we have to weed them out, one way or another.
Vixya: I know, I just feel strange doing this.
Sharpp: There's nothing to feel strange about. We are doing this to protect everyone on this ship.
Vixya: I just really hate hurting people.
Sharpp: And I hate being hurt, but you get used to both.
Riddle picks a hair off of his shirt as he walks along side the captain.
Riddle: Ever feel tempted to steal a shuttle craft and never look back?
12th Jan 2008, 03:45 AM
Sara answers without any hesitation.
Capt. Patton: Yes. On many occasions. *grins* I don't suppose you'd want to take the captain's yacht out to Risa for a week... Or two.
Doctor Glover stands just outside the surgical suite, watching her CMO cry over the woman. The EMH started to interrupt the Android, but Glover put a hand up. Let Lennox have his peace...
12th Jan 2008, 04:04 AM
Riddle: What I want and what I am obligated to do are usually two distinctly different things. But yes, I would love that.
Cat stumbles from Ten Forward, quite drunk at this point. She makes her way back to her temporary quarters, her old ones were destroyed in the bombing.
*Kezi's Temporary Quarters*
Kezi sits in the floor bear the bed, playing kal-toh. After the structure collapses for the fifth time, she pushes the thing away and sighs.
Kezi: Hey, Reg... lets do something.
12th Jan 2008, 04:16 AM
*Kezi's Temporary Quarters*
Reg was sitting at the oversized desk, catching up on Engineering work. He didn't even look up as he answered.
Lt. Barclay: L-like what?
Capt. Patton: Maybe we could arrange something later. But for now...
She stops walking to kiss Alex.
Capt. Patton: ...We can find something else to do...
12th Jan 2008, 04:26 AM
Kezi: I don't know... we could go to the starbase.
Riddle: *smirks* What did you have in mind, captain?
Lennox sits in a chair near Kati's biobed, just watching her sleep. He wishes he could undo it all. He hates himself for letting her get hurt, even if he could "fix" her afterwards.
Security watches him from a distance and doesn't even care at this point. Perhaps he really was dangerous, perhaps that damned EMH was right all along. Perhaps Q knew something when he kept trying to interfere with his and Katian's relationship. Perhaps.
12th Jan 2008, 04:57 AM
Capt. Patton: Well, Lieutenant... We could go back to my quarters and...
She leans in closer and whispers something into his ear.
*Kezi's Temporary Quarters*
Lt. Barclay: Hm... Sure. *still reading*
Quentin: *appears* Perhaps? Heh. You still doubt me...
The omnipotent alien leaned against the bulkhead. He juted his chin in the direction of the security guards, who were now standing like statues.
Quentin: Don't worry. They won't bother us.
12th Jan 2008, 05:09 AM
Riddle straightens his face as he looks back at Sara, doing his best Vulcan impersonation of his mother.
Riddle: That sounds most logical, captain. *grinning* So what are we waiting for?
Lennox simply looks up at the Q, he doesn't even have the energy to insult him or order him to leave his sickbay. Not that it mattered now.
Lennox: Hello, Q.... Have you come to tell me how badly I have messed things up this time? Trust me, I already know. And before you taunt me, though you would already know this if you were using your omnipotent abilities, but I wont be causing anyone any more problems. I am a security risk and a danger to those I care about... I just want to say goodbye to Kati first.
12th Jan 2008, 05:28 AM
Quentin: Hm. Well, that's your choice...
Quentin moved from the wall and to the opposite side of the bed from Lennox.
Quentin: *looking down* How delicate the mortal form... And yet so resilant. Its still amazing...
*Kezi's Tenporary Quarters*
Reg continued to read the PAADs until a shadow fell over the desk. Kezi was standing over him, an annoyed expession on her face.
Lt. Barclay: Um... Is s-something wrong?
12th Jan 2008, 05:37 AM
Lennox: Quite fragile... and the Q destroy it just to make some frivolous point. Couldn't you have stopped all this before it happened? Or are there enough Katian Ryouxs in alternate timelines for your amusement? I love her so much, I don't know if you could ever even understand. But, how could you, you are a Q! The Q know nothing of what its like to be a part of this particular existence.
Kezi crosses her arms across her chest and sighs.
Kezi: *sarcastic* No, nothing at all. I love standing around and watching you bury yourself in your work while completely ignoring me.
12th Jan 2008, 06:14 AM
*Kezi's Temporary Quarters*
Lt. Barclay: *gulps* I t-thought you were p-playing kal-toh...
Quentin: Don't even pretend to understand continuum logic, Android! You'd be surprised what kind of experience a milliena of existances can provide one with. I know all too well how this side of the universe works... And maybe there are some things that are meant to happen...
He snapped his fingers, a single Betazed rose appeared. Quentin plucked from the air and placed it in Katian's hand. Then before anything else could be said, he left the ame way he came.
12th Jan 2008, 06:23 AM
Lennox: I really hate the Q.
Dammers: What, sir?
Lennox: Nothing. Leave me alone.
Kezi: Well apparently I'm not Vulcan... and I asked you if you wanted to go do something!
12th Jan 2008, 06:25 AM
*Kezi's Temporary Quarters*
Reg seemed to almost sink into his chair.
Lt. Barclay: Um, s-sure. Whatever you w-want to do...
12th Jan 2008, 06:55 AM
Kezi groans as she spins around on her heel and throws herself onto the bed and buries her face in the pillow.
Kezi: Just nevermind! Its not even important...
After turning over the device to sh'Raazh, Vixya and Sharpp are off duty at last. For a short time at least.
Vixya: I need sleep, food, a shower, and twenty liters of trillaicacidic gelatin.
Sharpp: Gelatin? I think I understand... it is quite useful to deter the eyes in the walls.
Sharpp: Would you like to stay at my quarters?
Vixya: *grins* Of course!
12th Jan 2008, 07:07 AM
*Kezi's Temporary Quarters*
Reg slowly stood and timidly walked over to the bed.
Lt. Barclay: D-did I do something w-wrong...? I'm sorry, K-kezi... I just had a lot of work t-to catch up on... *sitting down next to Kezi* If its important, t-then I want to...
12th Jan 2008, 07:23 AM
Kezi: *sighs* I'm sorry, Reg... everything is just so stressful, and being on medical leave on top of it all... I guess I'm not so great to be around at the moment.
Cat wakes up in the bushes. She knew she was drunk, but apparently hadn't realized to what extent. A caitian woman growls at her from a few meters away.
Minousche: Get out of here before I report you, crewman! This isn't your own personal hotel room!
Cat: Alright alright... *rubs eyes* I don't feel so great...
She stumbles out of the doors of the arboretum before the botanist can rip her throat out. She is quite disoriented and hopes to locate her quarters before another embarassing incident occurs.
Sharpp's quarters are still in one piece because they are new, and he hasn't been home long enough to destroy them. He and Vixya sit at the small table in the corner. Sharpp takes a nutrient supliment and watches as they eat some kind of Bajoran dish.
Vixya: You really should eat real food once in a while, its quite enjoyable.
Sharpp: I find it quite revolting most of the time. The whole act of chewing and swallowing and the disgusting textures of everything. Its horrible.
Vixya: Well when you put it like that... but try some of this, its delicious.
Sharpp: What is it made of?
Vixya: Its replicated, so the same thing everything else is made of.
He reluctantly takes a bite of the incredibly spicy food. The searing pain makes the act of eating less noticeable, so he doesn't have his usual gagging reaction.
Sharpp: Well... that was tolerable.
Vixya: *laughs* Its alright, I'll get to you yet.
12th Jan 2008, 07:36 AM
Lt. Barclay: No. *quickly* What I-I m-meant was that, um, your under stress and I, er... I'm n-not helping any, am I?
Reg's shoulders droop as he sighs heavily. It was the same everytime; he'd stick his foot in his mouth and poof! Another sad chapter in his short romantic experiences ends...
12th Jan 2008, 07:51 AM
Kezi: Reg, this isn't your fault. I just got short tempered I guess. I shouldn't expect you to guess what I'm thinking...
Kezi sits up and puts an arm around his shoulders. He seems rather small to her at this moment.
Kezi: I'm not mad or anything. So can we just pretend this never happened?
12th Jan 2008, 08:14 AM
*Kezi's Temporary Quarters*
Reg sighs in relief and smiles weakly.
Lt. Barclay: Sure, okay... *pauses* What d-did you want to do? Go to t-the Starbase?
Katian began to stir. Her chest felt tight and stung with every breath. Was this Sickbay? How did she get here...?
12th Jan 2008, 08:25 AM
*Kezi's Temporary Quarters*
Kezi: Yes, I would like to go there and do... I don't know, do something.
Lennox: Katian, relax... You're in sickbay.
12th Jan 2008, 08:39 AM
*Kezi's Temporary Quarters*
Lt. Barclay: Well, m-maybe we can go furniture shopping... For your new quarters and--
The door chime went off. Reg motioned for Kezi to remain seated and went to the door himself.
Lt. Barclay: Y-yes?
Engineering Ensign: Lieutenant Barclay. I thought this was Ensign Kezi's quarters...
Lt. Barclay Oh, it is... I was j-just... Visiting...
Engineering Ensign: Ah. Well, Sir, we were going through the wreakage and found some belongings of hers... Could you give them to her?
Lt. Barclay: Of c-course...
The Ensign passed on a small indescriptive box. He nodded then left for other deliveries of recovered items.
Katian involuntarily flinched when Lennox spoke. She felt guilty for it. Whatever happened couldn't have been his fault...
Katian: Lennox. Are you all right? What happened to you... *trails off*
12th Jan 2008, 08:55 AM
Lennox: I... I... I am so sorry, Katian. I love you so much, you are the most important thing in existence to me and... thats why I need to go. Just try to lay back, you're going to be ok. Please take care of Lovecraft for me. When you feel well enough, I have a message waiting for you in my office.
Kezi takes the box from Reg.
Kezi: *aghast* I can't believe it survived.
She opens the small, ash covered box and a tinkly tune begins to play. Inside there is a purple jewel pendant on a metal chain and several photographs, the top one of what appears to be a very young Kezi and a Vorta man.
Kezi: This pendant is a kuluh'tura... its similar to a human wedding ring. It is given to a Vorta's life mate during our equivalent of a wedding... Anyway, this was my fathers... I took it from his body after he died and kept it ever since.
12th Jan 2008, 09:28 AM
*Kezi's Temporary Quarters*
Reg looks into the jewel center of the pendant. The color was almost a perfect match to Kezi's eyes. It was quite striking.
Lt. Barclay: And, is t-this him? *motions to the photograph* Your father?
Katian: Leave? What are you talking about?
She tries to get up, but the Android's firm hand keeps her on the bed.
Katian: You... You can't leave. I love you. Gods, I love you more than life itself... *begins to tear up* Why?
12th Jan 2008, 09:41 AM
Kezi: Yes, his name was Vylin... He had a beautiful singing voice, I remember, he would sing to us when we were young. No matter what was going on around us, that always would make everything seem alright.
Lennox: I am going to deactivate myself, Katian. Permanently. *tearful* I can't live with losing you too that way. I can't let it happen, not again. I love you so much... please, I just want to do whats right, I want to protect you. But I can't do that if I myself am a threat.
12th Jan 2008, 09:58 AM
Katian began to sob. She couldn't loose him, not after everything.
Katian: That wasn't you, Lennox! You would never hurt me!
She grabs his hand and refuses to let go.
Katian: *crying* Please... Please don't, Lennox... I can't let you... Please stay...
*Kezi's Temporary Quarters*
Lt. Barclay: He s-sounds like a good man... Um, do you take after him? In singing, I m-mean?
12th Jan 2008, 10:13 AM
A grin spreads across Kezi's face.
Kezi: Oh, I love singing... I just don't do it in front of others. Or at least, I haven't in years.
Lennox: I don't know what to do, Kati... I'm so... scared. I don't want to hurt you, but I did and what if next time its worse? You could have been killed and because I was close to you. Everything I touch suffers and I... I can't let that happpen to you. Not anymore.
Milo lays in bed with Vixya snuggled against him asleep. He stares at their face, silhouhetted in the starlight. They remind him a tad of a sleeping kitten, their head on his chest, with hair that smells like fruit and soap. He runs his fingers through it, warm, silky strand. For the first time he can remember, he feels content, and more importantly, safe. He can share a bed with someone and simply be able to fall asleep together. No other expectations or hurt feelings, just sleep, just the comfort of another's touch.
He looks out the window at the passing stars as he drifts to the nether dream realm. This time there is no fear, no alcohol induced unconsciousness. Just restful, thoughtless sleep, holding someone he can actually trust.
12th Jan 2008, 10:30 AM
Katian: *softly* Lennox... Lennox, look at me...
She waited unitl the Doctor lifted his eyes to hers, both pair equally tear-stained.
Katian: From the day I met you, my life has been better than it ever was... You... You were the first person to love me. My Kalinera... *chokes* And I can't go back to before... I couldn't love no other... I wouldn't. *touches his cheek* I'm not afraid, but only because you're beside me... Please don't leave...
*Kezi's Temporary Quarters*
Lt. Barclay: Would... Um, w-would you sing f-for me sometime?
12th Jan 2008, 06:11 PM
Name and Rank: Ensign Plux
12th Jan 2008, 11:22 PM
*Star base 194*
Lt. jg. Caeli is trying to persuade some officer to grant him access to their strategic and diplomatic database after allot of sweet talking and negotiating he manages to persuade her, finally something has gone right on this mission. Grinning to himself he decides to give his buddy Zan a call to meet up at the promenade.
Caeli: Raian, have you can peel yourself away from your security duties would you like the have drink and a good chat. I'm on the promenade of Star Base 194.
12th Jan 2008, 11:37 PM
Raian was making his way to stabse 194 anyway when he heard Korvin over through his com-badge. He smiled to himself before answering.
Ensign Zan: Sure, it'll have to be a quick one though! I'll explain later anyway, see you there lt.
12th Jan 2008, 11:40 PM
*Star Base 194*
Caeli: No biggie bud, I'm just stealing time until I can procure the Strategic database of 194. It will take a while bureaucracy, you know the stuff.
Meanwhile the doctors of Starbase 194 are faced with the deteriorating condition of Lt. Li. It's a complete mystery why this is happening, every possible medical care is given and there is no reason why his condition isn't stabilizing.
12th Jan 2008, 11:45 PM
Ensign Zan: Ok pal, I've got roughly half an hour before I have to, er, return to duty. See you there.
As he reached the starbase promenade, he checked the time with computer and glanced over at the empty docks. No sign of the Athena or K'vor as of yet but there was plenty of time for their arrival anyway. Plenty of time for a quick drink!
12th Jan 2008, 11:52 PM
Caeli waves at Zan, he is talking to his fellow junior lieutenant List over a cup of steaming hot Bolian soup.
Caeli: join us Raian, this is lieutenant List
List: Hiya, you look a little stressed out.
12th Jan 2008, 11:56 PM
Raian seems visibly relieved as he is finally able to sit down. He holds a hand out for Lt. jg. List to shake before replying to his comment.
Ensign Zan: I'm Ensign Zan but you can call me Raian. Less confusing that way! Wait, I look a little stressed? Guess I've been hanging around way too many vulcans 'cos I feel more than a little stressed, heh. Seriously though, I'm meeting someone here in around half an hour and then I'm hoping that I'll be off duty long enough to get some sleep! How've you guys been coping anyway? This voyage hasn't exactly been a picnic has it?
13th Jan 2008, 12:01 AM
List: Nice to meet you Raian and to be honest I didn't have the time to think about it or let it all sink in. The labs have been in disarray for days on end and I'm still trying to get some very valuable samples back that we lost, but so far zero luck.
Caeli: Please Raian, I'm an inch away of a nervous breakdown but like you said I think we all have been hanging around to many Vulcans. So who are you meeting?
13th Jan 2008, 12:08 AM
*Starbase 194 Promenade*
Ensign Zan: (raises eyebrow) A vulcan would you believe? Let's just say he's an old friend of mine, or Zan's rather, but we're meeting for reasons other than a quick chat. I'm just glad to have a little break for a little while. I guess you guys are off duty right now? (to List) Xarantine right? I've heard of the species from some old klingon friends and seen images but never met any. Speaking of klingons...ah, never mind. That bolian soups looking rather nice around now but I'm so hungry right now I could even eat Gagh!
He was of course about to mention the battle between Lennox and his old friend Valkris but judging by the state of the doctor, he summised that the battle had fallen ill or perhaps never took place at all. He didn't know what fate had become of his once brother-in-law.
13th Jan 2008, 12:20 AM
List: Understandable we are not members of the Federation and most Xarantines prefer not to get involved in interstellar politics ever since the Klingon invasions in the 22nd century and the recent Dominion War has caused an even greater shift towards protectionism in Xarantine politics I'm afraid.
Caeli: Not really but I have to wait to get my request approved for sharing strategic and political files. So the meeting is work related, is it some top secret mission? *noticing Zan's expression* Well let's not dwell on it, do you wanna have some soup?
13th Jan 2008, 12:29 AM
*Starbase 194 Promenade*
The trill smiled weakly at the two as he felt exhaustion creep up on him. He was afraid that if he ordered the soup that he would fall face first in it. Better than the time Aeryn had tripped up and landed face first in the bowl of Gagh she had been carrying on a trip to Qo'noS one time. There had been much laughter that day, even from Halora who rarely even smiled. Event to this day it seemed that Zan had never lived it down. He ordered the soup regardless and turned back to his colleagues.
Ensign Zan: Guess that answers your question Korvin? I've got so much to do and so little time, It's just unbelievable. I'll need more than one lifetime to get through it all and considering I've already had four...I've just got a lot of research to do to catch up on what happened on the good ship maverik before I was assigned there.
13th Jan 2008, 12:42 AM
The three officers are chatting amicable amongst themselves all of them desperately trying to forget the last few days and the death and destruction that surrounded them. Caeli is speaking up a storm because every time he falls silent he sees the face of the Romulan he killed in self defense. The time is passing them by and Caeli is the first one to notice that is time for Raian's mysterious appointment.
Caeli: Raian I think it's time to meet your Vulcan friend.
((ooc: hope you don't mind to fast forward))
sh'Raazh is in turmoil ever since Sharpp has handed over the device, resulting in her sulking and being uncharacteristically silent. She was still waiting on word of ensign Zan or so she told herself. She twists and turns the device between her fingers wondering if she should act now or wait. She looks at Richie opens her mouth but bites the words back, why this sudden indecision she wonders.
13th Jan 2008, 12:48 AM
*Starbase 194 Promenade*
Raian too realises and mentally curses himself before rising from his seat and nodding to the two officers he had been enjoying the company of.
Ensign Zan: I'd better get going then. It was nice talking with you both and I look forward to the next time. See you later!
With that he quickly left and made his way to the docks. He looked out of the nearest window to see that the Athena had arrived more or less on schedule, but would probably take another ten minutes or so to dock. He placed his hands behind his back and waited patiently for their docking to be completed.
Meanwhile on the Athena, the vulcan science officer was preparing for shore leave in his quarters when he felt the prescence of another behind him. He barely had time to turn around before being hit by phaser fire at point blank range, before being stabbed with a knife of some sort. As green blood oozed across the carpeting, it seemed evident that the meeting perhaps would be delayed, if not halted entirely. Someone didn't want him talking, that was for sure.
13th Jan 2008, 12:59 AM
Commander Bijaj watches the Athena dock on the viewscreen as she stalks around the bridge making the other officers feel uneasy. Several officers almost jump out of their seats when she barks her orders.
Bijaj: Cadet Shras send a standard greeting to the Athena.
Shras: Aye ma'am.
Several people from the Athena start to disembark most of them walk past the Trill ensign (maybe to uncomfortable to be around him) while others give him a polite nod or a friendly handshake. It seems to take forever for a certain Vulcan officer to arrive at the Docking Bay.
13th Jan 2008, 01:06 AM
*Starbase 194 Docking Bay*
Raian gives a weak smile to those he recognises an acknowledges those who acknowledge him. His instincts meanwhile screamed that something was wrong and, unfortunately, Zan had a habit of so called hunches being correct As a fellow ensign walked past, a science officer in fact, he stops them with a hand on the shoulder.
Ensign Zan: Excuse me ensign, have you seen Lt. Cmr K'vor?
Ensign: He returned to his quarters as we were docking. Thats the last time I saw him. The captain might know.
Ensign Zan: Ok, thanks. I don't think I'll bother her though. Unless I have to any way.
13th Jan 2008, 01:13 AM
sh'Raazh: *over the combadge* Ensign I just heard the news have you met him yet?
People are still disembarking from the Athena but the flow of people is getting smaller. An old friend of Yulia takes the time to chat a little with Zan, the conversation is unremarkable but the man seems a little nervous.
13th Jan 2008, 01:18 AM
*Starbase 194 Docking Bay*
As Zan spoke with his old friend, he couldn't help but notice his anxiety. This was probably understandable as he had been a good friend of Yulia's and had also probably known the hot-headed ensign under her command. He responded to the communication form sh'Raazh.
Ensign Zan: Nothing yet, but I can't help but feel that somethings wrong. I'll see if I can get permission to board the Athena. How are things on your end?
13th Jan 2008, 01:24 AM
sh'Raazh: ready but waiting on answers. Dammit just board the Athena, I grant you permission, for security reasons I'll clear this later with the captain and Lt. cmdr. Shashar. Watch your back Ensign.
sh'Raazh decides that she can no longer wait and activates the device.
13th Jan 2008, 01:41 AM
*OOC* Good night
*Starbase 194 Docking Bay*
Raian smiled as Tara showed her usual impatience and bluntness but he was tempted to board without permission anyway. As he boarded the vessel, he couldn't help but feel a little nervous but at least he knew his way around. He had no problem in finding the quarters that Zan had once shared with the vulcan officer, and as he opened the door he couldn't help but stifle a sob as his one time husband lay dying in a pool of green blood. He sank to his knees, crawled over and cradled the dying mans head, almost forgetting that he was no longer Yulia. The vulcan opened his eyes and jerkily moved his hand into a V-shape.
K'vor: Zan...live long...and prosper...
Zan smiled weakly and placed a hand on his cheek tenderly. The vulcan used the last of his strength for one more mild meld and as he finished and breathed his last, Raian stood up and, after calling the Athena's sickbay to declare a medical emergency, he left the quarters, and the ship. As he returned to starbase, he tapped his combadge, a hint of anger in his voice.
Ensign Zan: Zan to Sh'Raazh, K'vor is dead. Whatever the hell you're gonna do, just do it. I'll report back later but lets just say pretty much everyone based up here is involved some way or another. Just call it an issue of katra. Zan out.
13th Jan 2008, 01:56 AM
((ooc: bon nuit, goede nacht, good night))
sh'Raazh: Ensign, what the hell ...
sh'Raazh and everybody in engineering is distracted when an engineering crewman falls to the ground grinding in agony. sh'Raazh grabs Richie's hand. Lt. Sharpp's plan worked or so it seems. sh'Raazh wonders what happened to Zan and what he meant with his last comment? Several baffled engineers walk towards the screaming crewman.
sh'Raazh: Security to engineering we just found a traitor in engineering. *to the engineers, with cold fury in her voice* Leave him.
She walks towards crewman Janssens and grabs the section 31 agent and pushes him brutally against the wall, almost breaking his skull.
sh'Raazh: Speak you bastard or I'll choke the life out of you.
Ensign Morganth: Ma'am I going to have to ask you to realize crewman Janssens
sh'Raazh drops the poor 'pink skin' to the ground and steps aside, the somewhat confused security crewmen are looking at the dangerous looking Andorian woman who is towering above the screaming crewman not sure what is going on here.
13th Jan 2008, 02:13 AM
Kimble was just as confused as everyone else, but stepped towards sh'Raazh when no one else dared.
Lt. Kimble: Tara... Imzadi... Let Security take care of it...
13th Jan 2008, 03:12 AM
Kezi: Well... I wouldn't for just anyone. But for you, I suppose it could be arranged.
Milo is woken from a rather deep sleep as he is alerted of his plan "working". He crawls out of bed and tries not to disturb Vixya, since only he was alerted. He pulls on his uniform and boots and heads out towards the glaring light of engineering.
Sharpp inters Engineering to find a rather interesting scene between sh'Raazh and some nameless engineering crewman. He approaches the Andorian carefully.
Sharpp: *discretely* Sir, you realize that not everyone knows that they have one of these devices implanted in them....
Lennox: I just want to do whats best for you, Katian... Whatever that may be. I am more than willing to sacrifice myself for your well being. You almost died because of me. I can't live with myself for letting that happen.
13th Jan 2008, 03:23 AM
Katian felt like screaming. Felt like beating the truth into Lennox's positronic matrix.
Katian: Lennox, you didn't let it happen! They made you, just like before! *sobs* I don't blame you... I'm not even angry. Please... I need you... *quieter* Don't leave me...
Reg smiled brightly.
Lt. Barclay: I l-look forward to it... *pauses* Um, y-you ready to go?
13th Jan 2008, 03:29 AM
Kezi looks down and realizes that she is still in her pajamas.
Kezi: Oh, let me get dressed... I need new clothes too.
She opens a drawer and pulls out a plain black dress that she pulls over head. She slips on her work boots and then goes to the door.
Kezi: Now I'm ready.
Lennox holds on to Katians hand for dear life. He is trying to make the recent events make sense. He can't decide if it would be worse if he had actually let it happen on purpose, or to be so helpless and vulnerable that it was completely out of his control.
Lennox: I'll try Kati, I'll try...
13th Jan 2008, 03:38 AM
Kati cries louder, but this time out of relief. She pulled Lennox closer, just to hold on to him.
Katian: *choked whisper* I love you, Lennox...
Lt. Barclay: *tilts his head, smiles* You look nice in t-that dress...
Reg stands and offers his arm to the beautiful Vorta. Right then he felt lke the luckiest man in the galaxy.
13th Jan 2008, 03:51 AM
Lennox holds Kati, and kisses her and buries his nose in her hair.
Lennox: I love you too.
Kezi and Reg walk arm in arm and the Vorta has a huge grin on her face. Still, people give her and Reg odd looks, and she doesn't know why. For supposedly "advance species" so many members of the federation can be so closed minded.
Kezi: So, I want to get a jumja stick when we get there, how about you?
Cat stumbles past the couple, groping the wall and trying to keep her balance. This feels must stranger than any hangover she's ever had, so she decides to go try to get to sickbay.
13th Jan 2008, 03:59 AM
Lt. Barclay: S-sounds good. I haven't had one in awhile...
Reg ignores the looks they were getting, who gave a damn what they did anyway? He was in love and reasonably sure Kezi loved him back. Wasn't that all that mattered?
13th Jan 2008, 04:24 AM
Ensign: Captain, the Maverick has sent us a standard greeting message.
Cpt. Sharpp: Very good! Hail them.
Allison Sharpp takes a seat in her chair as an image of the irritated looking Klingon, Commander Bijaj appears on the screen.
Cpt. Sharpp: Hello, Commander, its great to see you again.
Kezi: Ever realize just how big this ship is?
Nori Cat stumbles into sickbay and falls on the floor and Dr. Rii.
Rii: Nurse, help me get her to a biobed!
EMH: Oh what a surprise, an Ishonai who can't handle her alcohol...
13th Jan 2008, 04:42 AM
Reg looks up for a moment.
Lt. Barclay: Forty-t-two decks, six hundred fourty-one m-meters long, a beam of four hundred sixty-three point s-seven three meters, one hundred ninety-five point two six meters tall and a m-mass of four million, five hundred thousand metric t-tons.
Bijaj salutes Captain Sharpp as she appears on the viewscreen.
Cmdr. Bijaj: Greetings Captain Sharpp! An honor to meet again. Captain Patton has retired for the evening, but I will inform her of your return. Do you require our assistance?
13th Jan 2008, 04:55 AM
Sharpp: No, Commander. I just wanted to say hello. Qu'pla!
Kezi: *laughs* Well I guess that answers my question. Did you know that Bolian corpses never go into a state of rigor-mortis?
As Dr. Rii examines Cat, he notices several incision sites along her spine. They are small and crude, though quite neat. He scans the crewman and finds traces of ketamine in her system.
Glover: What happened to her?
Rii: I don't know, but I believe that she was drugged, there are some very unusual incisions along her spine. The wounds arent sutured in any way, and it looks almost as if they were put there to remove something.
Glover: Like what?
Rii: I really don't know. But We should probably notify security and give her a detox serum.
13th Jan 2008, 05:07 AM
Lt. Barclay: *gulps* N-no, I didn't...
The 'lift stops and Reg waits for Kezi to exit first before quickly making his own.
Lt. Barclay: So w-where to first?
Cmdr. Bijaj: Qapla', HoD! Duj tlvoqtaH.
13th Jan 2008, 05:15 AM
Kezi: Well, we could go hold up a dabo parlor... you brought the phasers, right?
13th Jan 2008, 05:31 AM
Lt. Barclay: Uh, K-kezi... I'm n-not sure, are you joking?
Glover adminsters the detox treatment as Rii continues to examin the incisions.
Dr. Rii: Hm... There are about thirteen cuts in all, each made by the same blade. The tissue seems to be compressed as if there was something inside just under the skin... Some sort of device?
Dr. Glover: Possibly. *disgruntled* I wouldn't put it passed anyone after everything else...
13th Jan 2008, 05:38 AM
Kezi: Joking? No! I thought we'd agreed on this!
there is a long silence and Reg looks utterly terrified, finally Kezi starts laughing.
Kezi: Of course I'm joking!
Rii: Its quite strange... security is on their way. At least this one didn't get her skull cracked open or set on fire, so we should all be thankful for that.
13th Jan 2008, 05:52 AM
Lt. Barclay: Oh... Of c-course... Heh...
In contrast, Reg looks anything but relieved.
Lieutenant Commander Shashar barges into Sickbay, more than annoyed.
Lt. Cmdr Shashar: *to Rii and Glover* What's so important, Doctors?
13th Jan 2008, 06:03 AM
Kezi: Now, in all seriousness, i want a jumja stick!
Glover: This crewman was attacked, you seemed like the one to call.
Rii: She has some very strange, surgical wounds on her back.
Just as the doctors are speaking to Shashar, Sharpp and PO Neira come into sickbay, half carrying the screaming Jansenns. A nurse goes to assist them with the patient and Sharpp and Shashar glare at one another for a moment.
13th Jan 2008, 06:06 AM
Rii follows the nurse over to Jansenns as he is lifted onto a biobed.
Dr. Rii: What in blazes is going on now?!
Lt. Cmdr. Shashar: Ask Sharpp...
13th Jan 2008, 06:17 AM
Everyone stares at Sharpp and he scratches the back of his head nervously.
Sharpp: Uhmmm... I can't talk about it. Its confidential, all I can tell you is that this man has a device implanted in his brain.
13th Jan 2008, 06:41 AM
Dr. Rii: *sighs* Nurse, get him prepped to have it removed.
As the nurse goes off to comply, Shashar takes a step closer to Sharpp.
Lt. Cmdr. Shashar: What exactly is so classified that the Chief of Security doesn't know about it, Lieutenant?
13th Jan 2008, 06:53 AM
Sharpp: Sir, there are just some things that are way beyond you. This is one of them. Trust me, I'm a scientist.
This last sentence is Sharpp's new favorite catch phrase, it worked so well on Ensign Dudemeister.
13th Jan 2008, 07:01 AM
Shashar scowls and reaches out with his low level empathy. This man was hiding something...
Lt. Cmdr. Shashar: I don't trust you, Sharpp. In fact, if I had things my way you'd be on the first transport to a mental facility. But think of it this way, if you don't tell me, I'll charge you with obstruction.
13th Jan 2008, 07:06 AM
Sharpp rolls his eyes. All these self important beuracrats who think that they somehow enforce the law and protect people make him want to vomit. Still, he takes a deep breath and tries to be patient with Shashar.
Sharpp: Think about Shashar, I am under orders. This is a lot more important than obstructing justice and completely transcends federation morals and any grudge that may exist between us. I am more informed than you, this is all on a need to know basis, and I am not about to give important information to a potential spy!
13th Jan 2008, 07:22 AM
Lt. Cmdr. Shashar: Spy?! You are insane! You--
Doctors and nurses all around the infirmary look up at the outburst. Shashar shakes his head and takes a deep breath.
Lt. Cmdr. Shashar: Fine. You're under orders. At least tell me who gave the order...
13th Jan 2008, 07:31 AM
Sharpp: I'm afraid I can't do that, sir... Why are you holding me personally responsible for this? Hm? You seem rather suspicious. You're probably just trying to see what I know. Well I've been tortured be far more intimidating individuals than you and I never broke! So you better not hold your breath!
13th Jan 2008, 07:41 AM
Lt. Cmdr. Shashar: You are insane... And Patton is as well for letting you off the hook...
Shashar turns on his heel and marches back the way he came.
13th Jan 2008, 11:36 AM
Despite what he felt like doing, tracking down the scum who murdered K'vor and sending them to hell, he decided that for now he was best off in engineering. As he entered, he looked around from the extremely looking sh'Raazh to the frightened crewmen of engineering, to Lt. Kimble who was trying to restrain her. He raised an eyebrow as he thought out loud.
Ensign Zan: What the hell happened in here?
13th Jan 2008, 11:48 AM
After some soothing words by Richie, sh'Raazh calms down a little. Crewman Janssens is taken to sickbay and at that moment Ensign Zan enters engineering.
sh'Raazh: I'm all right Richie. *voice choked with anger* We just find this traitorous scum. *points at the screaming Janssens* We need to talk somewhere more private. Richie, my love please inform the captain about what just happened.
sh'Raazh leaves the baffled engineers and walks towards a secluded place on the Maverick. Her antenna's lay flat on her head and the expression on her face is one furious anger. She now notices the green blood on Ensign Zan.
sh'Raazh: No *realizing that K'vor is death*
13th Jan 2008, 01:02 PM
Lt. Kimble: Of course, Tara...
Richie shratched his head as Tara and the Trill Ensign left. Where was he going to talk to Captain Patton...
A Hour Later:
Doctor Rii and Doctor Glover had removed the device from Janssens' head. The crewman was unconscious, and the physicians were examining the piece of equipment.
Dr. Rii: So... Any theories?
Dr. Glover: Not really. Its an interesting... Thing...
Dr. Rii: *sarcastic* How professional of you... In my opinon, it looks like a tracking device...
Dr. Glover: Seriously?
Dr. Rii: *smirks* We Cardassians don't kid about these things.

As they looked for a secluded spot, Raian nodded slowly. It was evident that he hadn't noticed the blood as he made no effort to cover it up or remove it.
Ensign Zan: Someone didn't want him talking. He didn't get a good look at the attacker but we do know it was a human female and a crewman of the Athena. I suppose that they'll have dicovered the body by now as I informed their sickbay before I left. Oh god, what if she wiped the records and they think I did it? Never mind that though, Milo's plan worked then I take it? For all he's a bit whacko sometimes, you can't admit he's a genious in the making.
13th Jan 2008, 01:18 PM
sh'Raazh takes a deep breath before answering, it was very plausible that some suspicion would befall Zan. He had boarded the Athena without permission and left a crime scene. This are looking grime.
sh'Raazh: Maybe but with luck this device emits a strong enough pulse to cause the same discomfort to her than it did to our engineering crewman, Zan don't worry I'll protect you to the best of my abilities.
13th Jan 2008, 03:35 PM
The young ensign smiled weakly as the andorian spoke.
Ensign Zan: Thanks but i think I'll be fine. I can't believe he's gone. I never knew the guy personally but he meant a lot to Yulia, obviously. I just don't understand why I'm more bothered about getting caught for something I didn't do rather than the fact that a good man died today. Too many good people are dying around here, in fact if I believed in in these things then I'd think we'd been cursed. Gotta keep an open mind I suppose. This device, does the range extend to the starbase? I think what K'vor wanted to tell me was that a lot of people on the starbase are involved, which I guess explains the ruckus with those scientists a while back. I wonder what happened to their little specimen after it stayed on board? Anyway, just before he died, K'vor tranferred his katra to me but I'm having a hard time finding it among four lifetimes worth of memories. I think maybe we should tranfer it to another vulcan, then maybe we can use it before sending it on to vulcan.
13th Jan 2008, 06:28 PM
sh'Raazh thinks about ensign Zan's statement, transferring a Katra can be risky if done improperly and leave the ensign with severe neurological trauma.
sh'Raazh: We should try and find a Vulcan master to help you with the transfer. I don't know exactly the range of this device in all the fuss I forgot to ask. But I'm guessing it will exceed the parameters of the Maverick. And Zan there is nothing wrong with self preservation, don't bash your head in there isn't a standard way of feeling about things like this.
13th Jan 2008, 08:21 PM
It was getting late and Hakeem was growing tired of kal-toh. Nurse Lancaster gently led him from the table and out of Ten-Forward. The little guy was growing on her. She wondered what the authorities would do with him... Maybe she could become his guardian permanetly...
Ensign Lancaster: Anything else you want to do before bed, Hakeem?
13th Jan 2008, 08:25 PM
((ooc: Sounds good to my Moorespino, I was wondering what to do with the little fellow anyways))
Hakeem: *sleepily* Can I sleep with you? Sethie is scared in the dark.
13th Jan 2008, 08:30 PM
Ensign Lancaster: Sure, sweetie. You and Sethie can stay as long as you'd like...
She ushers the boy and his stuffed animal into a turbolift and orders it to Deck 12. Janice ruffels Hakeem's hair and smiles.
Ensign Lancaster: Hakeem, how would you like to stay with me all the time? Do you think Sethie would like that?
13th Jan 2008, 08:33 PM
Hakeem: Sethie would like that, he thinks you are a very pretty lady.
As they exit the turbolift and walk towards their quarters a deranged looking Vieth is stumbling towards them, the sight is one straight out of a horror movie. Her mouth is fuming and blood is pouring out of her noise as she opens her mouth to speak only an incoherent sound escapes her. Hakeem grabs nurse Lancaster's hand and begins to cry in fear.
((ooc: this doesn't mean doctor Vieth has to be an agent of section 31, it could be something else altogether or just what it seems))
13th Jan 2008, 09:11 PM
Janice grabbed Hakeem to her and pulled his head away from the bloody sight.
Ensign Lancaster: *taps combadge* Medical emergencey! Deck 12, Section Fifty-One! *whispering* Shhh, its okay, Hakeem... Don't look baby...
13th Jan 2008, 09:28 PM
The medics Raryn, Lurat and Sharia rush to the emergency call escorted by a team of security officers. Hakeem is making stifled noises from behinds nurse Lancaster's back hugging her tightly. Doctor Vieth is now screaming in agony and trashes around like a wounded animal.
Lurat: Ma'am is everything all right with you and the boy?
Raryn: Oh my god it's doctor Vieth.
Sharia prepares a tranquilizer but her hands are shacking so severe she is unsure if she will be able to administer it. Doctor Vieth has been the medics coordinator and now it looks like she was a traitor. She counts to ten and injects the doctor who emits a horrible screech and than falls silent all together. The silence is almost worse than the screaming.
13th Jan 2008, 09:32 PM
The shock of the sudden silence helps Janice find her voice.
Ensign Lancaster: Y-yes... We're all right... *to Hakeem* Are you all right, sweetie?
She hugs the boy to her for dear life.
13th Jan 2008, 09:46 PM
Hakeem: *crying* I want my mammy.
Lt. Shrall: Hey there little man it's going to be okay. *looking up to Lancaster* I'll escort you and the little man to your quarters nurse Lancaster. Common do you wanna ride horseback kiddo?
Hakeem calms down a little (he is still crying) and hesitantly takes Lt. Shrall up on his offer.
13th Jan 2008, 10:09 PM
*Corridor Outside of Lancaster's Quarters*
Janice walks beside the Lieutenant and Hakeem, who had stopped crying. It was quiet except for horse noises and occasional bouts of laughter.
Ensign Lancaster: *turns to Shrall* Thank you, Lieutenant. I appriciate you seeing us here.
13th Jan 2008, 10:24 PM
Lt. Shrall: Not at all, here you go fellow.
Lt. Shrall leaves nurse Lancaster and Hakeem and tracks back to security, left and right officers are falling ill due a strange device concocted by Lt. jg. Sharpp. He wasn't exactly sure what it all meant just that it was more bad news.
The medics arrive with the sedated Doctor Vieth, there wasn't a doctor in sight only several tired nurse.
Aayla is sitting at a table with Slevin and Lirra, Ten Forward is virtually deserted except for a few stranglers. The three civilians are talking amongst themselves unaware of what happened to Katian. Lt. jg. Takei is one of those stranglers he is looking at his empty glass and wondering if the meeting with ship's counselors would go any better than the one he had with security. He stares out of the window noticing that a new ship has arrived.
13th Jan 2008, 10:41 PM
Once inside safely, Janice gives Hakeem a quick check to make sure he was all right. What if that was airborne? He'd show some symptoms...
Ensign Lancaster: How are you feeling, Hakeem? Anything feel funny?
Rii and Glover emerge from the Sickbay Lab to see Doctor Vieth being placed on a bed.
Dr. Glover: *to nearest medic* What happened to Vieth?
13th Jan 2008, 10:50 PM
Sharia: Nurse Lancaster found her this way in the corridors, Ma'am. Initial scans reveal nothing, *almost whispering* she could have one of those devices implanted in her skull.
Hakeem: What was wrong with the doctor, is she sick. I'm going to get sick *scared* I don't feel sick.
The little boy hugs his toy tightly his eyes wide with shock and fear.
13th Jan 2008, 11:06 PM
Raian nodded and smiled again weakly before excusing himself. He was wandering around a little disorientated as he tried to take in the recent events. Somewhere along the line he heard of the death of another good friend, Valkris, understandably making him feel worse. He eventually managed to reach security where he changed into another uniform and began walking to Ten-Forward. He then sat down in the corridor as a combination of his grief, other recent events, and the effects of the earlier katra transfer took hold and he placed his head on his lap and began sobbing quietly. As he did so, Tiger happened to be walking past searching for Socks, who had escaped from her quarters. She noticed him and crouched down.
Nurse Frasier: Hey Rani, watcha doing down there? Rani? Are you ok?
Ensign Zan: (rubbing his eyes) I'm fine...just tired.
Nurse Frasier: Maybe we should get you to sickbay? On seconds thoughts though I guess all you need is a little sleep. Now get up ya blubbering mess!
Ensign Zan: But I'm not...
Nurse Frasier: Whatever, you were gonna share my quarters until yours got fixed right? Then lets go.
13th Jan 2008, 11:07 PM
Janice kneels down to Hakeem's eye level and places a hand on his shoulder.
Ensign Lancaster: No, honey. Doctor Vieth... Just was ill, you're not going to get it. You are just fine. *smiles* And Sethie, too. I'm a nurse, remember. I know your all right.
Dr. Glover: *shocked* God, how far is this thing going?
Dr. Rii: Far enough. Get her prepped and ready for removal... And somebody get Engineering in here to look at thie first one.
13th Jan 2008, 11:17 PM
As sh'Raazh and Zan go their separate ways, the lieutenant commander decides to look for Richie.
sh'Raazh: *taps combadge* Lt. Kimble meet me in the observation lounge. Computer alert all senior officer for an emergency staff meeting.
sh'Raazh is well aware this isn't exactly standard procedure but it's time to bring her and Sharpp's plan into the open.
Aayla walks towards Tiger and Raian wondering what's up.
Aayla: Is everything all right here officers?
Hakeem: Are you sure? Will the doctor get better or will she die like my mammy and daddy?
Hakeem hugs the nurse tightly afraid if he let her go she too would perish.
Lt. Woods, ensign Thelin and PO Tigan enter sickbay all three of them look exhausted but determined to do their work. Lt. Woods is still worrying about the structural integrity of deck 15 but before he can see a word he is called away for a staff meeting. The strange about it that it wasn't the captain's or first officer's request but the navigator sh'Raazh, this was to say the least unorthodox.
Lt. Woods: Excuse my gentlemen duty calls, alert me if anything goes wrong.
Thelin and Tigan: Aye chief
13th Jan 2008, 11:31 PM
As they both look up towards the Twi'Lek officer, Raian shakes his head and Tiger smiles.
Nurse Frasier: Nah, we can manage. He's just feeling a little under the weather thats all, right Rani?
Ensign Zan: Yeah, overwork thats all. Thanks though.
Nurse Frasier: I'll tell you what you could do if you're not too busy, would you be able to just keep an eye out for my cat? He's a black and white and he wears a red collar. If ya find him, can you make sure thats he's returned to personal quarters 64a? Thanks!
With that, the two ensigns left for a little RnR. It was only now that Zan realised that the caitian was wearing very little else but her dressing gown. She smiled and shrugged slightly.
Nurse Frasier: I know, but my doors not working properly. It won't lock so the cat can use it to do a runner. I've already told engineering but I've got more chance of the cat performing klingon opera than I have of getting anything done about it the way things are right now.
13th Jan 2008, 11:37 PM
((ooc: I would like to hear that opera LOL))
Aayla: Of course
She watches the strange pair walk away left wondering about why an officer would dress so improperly and why another one was in tears. As she walks back into Ten Forward a flustered looking Bolian officer passes her by.
Caeli: Raian, have you heard there has been a murder on the Athena.
13th Jan 2008, 11:48 PM
*OOC* I'm not so sure I would, lol!
As the pair walked along the corridor, a rather flustered looking Korvin ran in their direction. Raian stopped and looked at his friend, his eyes still a little red from crying.
Ensign Zan: I know, it was their chief science officer K'vor. He was my-or rather Yulia's husband. I also just found out that Aeryn's brother in law has also been murdered on the very starbase where we we're docked. I didn't know either personally but then again I guess I did in a way. Feels that way anyway, heh. It's been a long day anyway and I'm hoping to get some sleep now.
Nurse Frasier: Nurse's reccommendation! (to Korvin) Um, the names Tiger but you might know me as Nurse Frasier. You'll have to pardon the, ahem, current attire but I was chasing my cat.
Ensign Zan: Oh yeah, sorry. I knew Tiger from the academy but then we lost touch. This is Korvin, or Lt. Caeli.
Nurse Frasier: A friend of Rani is a friend of mine. Oh, Rani's what I always called him, it's short for Raneri, his old surname. Why don't you help me get this lump back to my quarters? His are wrecked.
Ensign Zan: Hey!
13th Jan 2008, 11:57 PM
((ooc: I was being sarcastic LOL))
Caeli: Heya Tiger and sure my buddy looks like hell. Oh my goodness I'm so sorry about K'vor Raian but the way things are going to hell I'm afraid sleeping may not be option anymore. *whispering* There is more you know, several officers of the star base 194 have succumbed to a mysterious sickness. So I suggest you get some sleep while you can. Once again my deepest sympathies.
Computer: Cadet T'rei you have a personal message, priority one.
14th Jan 2008, 12:04 AM
Bijaj bursts into the meeting area and confronts the Andorian Navigatior.
Cmdr. Bijaj: What is the meaning of this, Lieutenant?! You have no authority to call Senior Staff meetings!
Nurse Lancaster: I don't know, Hakeem... I just don't know...
Janice hugs the boy tightly and rubs his back in a soothing manner.
14th Jan 2008, 12:06 AM
*OOC* Gathered that :)
*Nurse Frasier's Quarters*
The two say their goodbyes before leaving. As they approach Tiger's quarters, they notice the formally missing black and white cat. scratching at the door to be let in. He follows them in as they enter and Tiger leads Raian to the bedroom.
Nurse Frasier: I already took the liberty of putting up a little bed for ya. Try to get some sleep ok?
The trill didn't need telling twice as he fell asleep the second his head hit the pillow. Tiger smiled before getting into her own bed and calling for the lights to be switched off. At least for now none of them would have to worry about any more trouble, unless they were woken up of course.
*Cadet T'rei's Quarters*
T'rei rose from her sleep feeling a little better but still a little headachey. As she read the message she had just received, her face fell and she found herself needing to sit down. She wasn't quite sure how to react to the news of her fathers murder. She had to call upon every ounce of the vulcan teachings she had recieved to prevent herself from crying and sceaming at the death of her second parent just six months after her mother was killed in a Romulan attack on board the same vessel. Instead, she got dressed and left for Starbase 194 to see if she could find any details.
14th Jan 2008, 12:08 AM
sh'Raazh: shut up you Klingon nitwit and sit down before I kick your Klingon behind to the curb. Maybe it escaped your dimwitted brainpower but people are dying here.
((ooc: :anime: ))
14th Jan 2008, 12:17 AM
*Bijaj growled and slammed a fist on the table.
Cmdr. Bijaj: bljatlh 'e' ylmev! You will not speak to me in that manner or I will throw you onto the next passing gabage scowl! yaj'a'?!
(((OOC: Quick Klingon lesson: bljatlh 'e' ylmev= Shut up! yaj'a'= (Is that) Understood?)))
14th Jan 2008, 12:23 AM
((ooc: thanks my Klingonees doesn't go further than qua'pla))
Before sh'Raazh gets to answer Lt. Woods enters the observation lounge he sees that the women are about to come to blows.
Lt. Woods: Ma'am, ma'am what's going on here.
sh'Raazh: Our first officer is marking her territory.
Lt. Woods: Maybe you should show some respect towards her, ma'am. So what is this all about anyway?
sh'Raazh: I'll explain it as soon every officer is here.
Counselor D'ar enters looking tired.
*Corridor before Cadet's T'rei's quarters*
Counselor Mar'qet escorted by a security detail stands before T'rei's quarters. He hesitates for a moment, it's the second time he has to counsel an orphaned child albeit this one is a teenager. He chimes the door.
Mar'qet: Cadet T'rei, this is counselor Mar'qet can I have a word with you?
14th Jan 2008, 12:34 AM
(((OOC: tlhlngan Hol dajatlh'a'? plch vlghajbe')))
Bijaj mutters a few Klingon curses and takes a seat.
Cmdr. Bijaj: Foolish p'tak...
At that moment, Kimble enters.
Lt. Kimble: *nods, smiles* Tara, everyone else... What are we here for?
Cmdr. Bijaj: The Lieutenant refuses to tell until everyone arrives. Sit.
Lt. Kimble: *rolls his eyes* Okay, okay...
(((OOC: nuqDaq jlQong... Er, I mean I'm going to bed. Good night!)))
14th Jan 2008, 12:34 AM
*OOC* Goodnight moorespino
*Cadet T'rei's Quarters*
As she prepared to leave, she heard her door chime and the voice of the Klingon counsellor. She rolled her eyes as she was not in the mood for counselling but allowed him access anyway. She stood with her hands behind her back as she spoke.
Cadet T'rei: You may enter.
14th Jan 2008, 12:45 AM
((ooc: goodnight moorespino I'm also signing out for tonight))
The Klingon counselor enters the room and signals the security detail to wait outside. He sees the Vulcan/Trill hybrid cadet standing rigid, well maybe her Vulcan nature will win out and he doesn't have to deal with a scene.
Counselor Mar'qet: please sit down Cadet. I'm afraid I have bad news about your father. He has been murdered. *empathic tone of voice*
The counselor waits for a response at times like this he preferred to be around Klingons, although he despised their warrior ethics at least dealing with loss and death was relatively easy for them. Granted Vulcans weren't once to make a scene but only because it would be considered illogical. But Trill's like most humanoid species did not fair well when confronted with the loss of a loved one, he wonders if she will take a Vulcan approach or a more Trill attitude confronted with the loss of her father.
((ooc: I send a pm to all active players about the why sh'Raazh requested a staff meeting, feel free to use sh'Raazh if needed))
14th Jan 2008, 12:53 AM
*OOC* Me too. See you later
*Cadet T'rei's Quarters*
As she sat down, she tried her hardest to act vulcan as she felt it would be easier. She glanced at a photo of her parents upon a shelf and then turned back to Mar'Qet. Although she managed quite well with her vulcan act, which entailed speaking monotonously and suppressing her emotions, the tears still streamed down her pale cheeks.
Cadet T'rei: I am aware sir. Strange, they say this vessel is cursed by death but both my parents died aboard the Athena. My mother was killed in an attack upon the vessel six months and four days ago but I hear the symbiont she carried survived. Do you know who did this to my father? Are my siblings on Vulcan and Trill aware? Do you know if my father passed his katra? (sighs) Forget the last question but at least tell me the other two...please.
14th Jan 2008, 04:32 AM
Lennox walks into the loungem his hands behind his back and his vision directed to the floor. He hated to leave Katian, but she does need her rest and this meeting is quite important.
Shortly after the Chief Medical officer takes his seat, Lt. JG Sharpp enters and stands near sh'Raazh. He has sat in on very few senior staff meetings, so he is quite nervous about one of his expirements being under the scrutiny of one. Bijaj scowls at him as he takes his seat.[/B]
Bijaj: *to Sharpp* You have no business being here, p'tok! Leave before I have you put up against a wall and shot!
Sharpp: Actually sir, I have every reason to be here...
At this moment, chief tactical officer, Lt. Cmdr. Shashar walks in.
Shashar: I second that, commander! This maniac is going to have all of us killed!
Sharpp: *sarcastically* Its great to see you guys too...

Just when everyone thought it was to become a free-for-all fight, a hasitly dressed Patton and Riddle enter at the same time.
Capt. Patton: *sarcastic* Gentlemen, could we please leave the fate of the junior officers up to me... *takes a seat* In all seriouness, I don't like it when officers threaten one another. Keep it up and you'll be off this ship for good. Understood?
Lt. Cmdr Shashar: *quietly* Yes, Sir...
Cmdr. Bijaj: Captain, I must protest! This Human is incapable--
Capt. Patton: Bijaj, when you were assigned to this ship under my command. Heed my directives or you can go back to Headquarters for reassignment.
Cmdr. Bijaj: *snarling* Aye, Sir...
Capt. Patton: *takes a deep breath* Now that that is settled, would someone tell us why we were called here? Lieutenant sh'Raazh?
14th Jan 2008, 08:50 AM
Mar'qet: As we speak your siblings are taken to your aunt, I'm sure they will be taken care of. The investigation into your fathers murder is ongoing, I can't tell you much about it. *softly pads her back* I know this allot to take in.
14th Jan 2008, 08:58 AM
*Cadet T'rei's Quarters*
The vulcan hybrid trembled slightly under the counsellors touch but said nothing. She couldn't help but feel that she was being patronised, although counsellors did have a habit of doing that and the klingon was only trying to help. She was one of five siblings and she supposed that it had been the three younger taken to their aunt on vulcan. Her older brother was studying on trill and she wondered if he too was returning to vulcan. She took a deep breath and looked up at the klingon counsellor.
Cadet T'rei: I mean no disrespect but I wish to be alone for the time being. You understand.
14th Jan 2008, 09:04 AM
Mar'qet: None taken cadet, if you need to talk my office is always open, Qua'pla.
Mar'qet leaves the cadet's quarters unsure if he had made any difference, but you can't force people to except help. His next client was a badly injured Klingon woman, a challenge to say the least.
sh'Raazh: You all know the recent events on the Maverick, Lieutenant Sharpp and I have reasons to believe that there are several double agents placed on this ship and we devised a way to uncover them. But I think mister Sharpp can explain the plan better, after all it was his idea.
14th Jan 2008, 04:51 PM
Sharpp gulps as he stands to explain what has been going on to the senior staff.
Sharpp: Well... you see. Over my time in starfleet, I have been given several assignments by section 31. One of which was to design a trans neural telepathic communication device... So when a section 31 operative was found aboard and ultimately died, sh'Raazh and I thought it would be logical to try check the corpse for one of these devices. Well we thought to do this, because before she died, the operative told me that such a device was in use and...
Shashar: You work for section 31? I don't know if I should laugh or arrest you!
Bijaj: Traitor! I knew it! If this was a klingon ship-
Riddle stands and puts a hand up to silence the officers.
Riddle: Commander, as I must remind you repeatedly, this is NOT a Klingon ship... Shashar, there is no reason to arrest the lieutenant, really you should be grateful. He's saved out asses more than once. Now lieutenant, I would like to know why the senior staff was not better notified of this.
Sharpp: I ummm... I think that sh'Raazh could explain that better.
14th Jan 2008, 06:08 PM
sh'Raazh: I'm my opinion it was best to limit the knowledge to a select few. Less was more in this case, it was the only way to keep what we were doing under the radar.
Bijaj: who gave you the right p'taq, I should throw you out of the nearest airlock.
sh'Raazh: *ignoring Bijaj* I kept the captain informed on what we were doing, also there was a risk that somebody of the senior staff was in league with section 31.
Shashar: Are you accusing people of being spies? You spent to much time with that loon Sharpp.
sh'Raazh: I'm not accusing anybody of anything but at time we didn't have that certainty.
Bijaj: Captain I must insist that you throw those two unworthy p'taqs in the brig, they are clearly unfit officers.
sh'Raazh: So you are willing to close your eyes about the fact that we just uncovered a mass conspiracy I thought Klingons were a noble and brave people, but you are nothing but a cowardly bureaucrat.
Bijaj: P'taq I'll gut you for this.
The two women are now standing noise to noise fist clinched.
14th Jan 2008, 11:09 PM
Over combadge: Nurse Frasier please report to sickbay, medical emergency situation.
14th Jan 2008, 11:16 PM
*OOC* Just one post tonight I'm afraid. If you need to use any of my charas then just do it, so long as you don't kill them or hurt them too badly ;)
*Nurse Frasier's Quarters*
Tiger grumbled as she recieved the transmission but an emergency was an emergency. It was probably about time to get up anyway, but all she could do was dress quickly and dash out, leaving Raian and Socks alone. As she arrived in sickbay, she looked over at the doctor in charge.
Nurse Frasier: What's our situation?
14th Jan 2008, 11:23 PM
((ooc: no prob ;) ))
Doctor Syn: I'm afraid that the entire medical team of Star base 194 have succumbed to a mysterious illness, so the combined medical crew of the Athena and the Maverick have been called in to replace them. I'm assigning you to medical duties here. Please monitor doctor Vieth and crewman Janssens's condition and remind the security detail not to get in the way to much. I need to speak with our engineers, if you excuse me nurse.
15th Jan 2008, 12:11 AM
Sharpp starts laughing uncontrollably at the whole spectacle unfolding before him. The senior officers are too stuck in their ways of rigid rules and policy to care that section 31 has been violating sapient beings rights for who knows how long. Too thick headed to realize that a major plot has just been uncovered. How incredibly typical of them. He can't figure out who is worse, starfleet commanders or the insidious spies of section 31.
Lennox: All of this is quite possible. I trust the work ethic and scientific of both of these alleged "traitors". We should be listening to them, not throwing them into the brig because they challenge the way we have been brought to think.
Bijaj: Quiet, android! You have no free will, you're probably just another traitorous pawn!
Riddle: Way to be a team player, Bijaj...
Shashar: If this is true, this is probably just a ghost order ploy. Sharpp himself admitted that he was IN section 31.
Sharpp: I think you would have made the same decision if you had been in my place, Shashar. It was either work for them and get a cushy place to live and a promotion, or be tortured endlessly for who knows how long. There are fates far worse than death.
Shashar: You are STILL a traitor!
Bijaj: Do you know what we do with traitors on Q'ounos?
Riddle: Damn it! Enough of this petty bickering! We need to sit down, work together, and plan a course of action to combat this!
15th Jan 2008, 12:23 AM
Sharpp's laughing diffused the violent situation between sh'Raazh and Bijaj as the two women turn towards Sharpp, one with compassion and one with disdain.
sh'Raazh: *towards Bijaj and Shashar* Don't you two nitwits get it all? If we sit by and let's people get away with what they are doing they will destroy everything the Federation stands for and I rather rot in jail than stand idly by and let this happen.
Lt. Woods: I agree with commander Riddle we should be finding a way to battle this people instead of each other.
At that moment the news of the what is happening on Star base 194 reaches the Observation Lounge, their entire medical staff is having unexplained seizures. sh'Raazh gives Sharpp a worried look, this could mean that their safe heaven has been infiltrated by Section 31.
((ooc: feel free to use sh'Raazh and Woods if needed))
15th Jan 2008, 01:27 AM
Patton remained the silent observer until news from 194 reached them.
Capt. Patton: *to Lennox* Doctor, send your medical teams out... But I need you here, in case sh'Raazh's and Sharpp's plan backfires. I want experience over quantity...
15th Jan 2008, 01:43 AM
Lennox: *in his typical android way* Aye sir. *taps com badge* Dr. Lennox to Sickbay, all non essential personnel are to immediately be dispensed to the Starbase 194 medical bay.
Shashar: This is completly insane...
Sharpp: Life generally is, Shashar... I hardly expected there to be such a wide scale effect of sending out that transmission. This seems much worse than we though. *laughs* And to think, they all said I was paranoid.[/I]
Nori Cat jumps off her biobed as the medical staff begin filing out of sickbay and begins to follow them. Dr. Achmed stops her.
Achmed: You haven't been released yet, Nori.
Cat: Well theres one hell of an emergency over on that starbase and they need all the good medics they can get!
Achmed: You're in no condition to-
Cat: Damn it, Jason. I have respect for you, don't get me wrong, but I really need to get in there and help!
She storms out of sickbay, still sick and sore from her "incident" with several remaining wounds in her back. She never liked being a patient to begin with, so this was just a convenient excuse.
15th Jan 2008, 01:50 AM
Capt. Patton: Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean their not out to get you... Please continue, Mister Sharpp, and no more interruptions... *glances at Bijaj and Shashar*
15th Jan 2008, 02:06 AM
Sharpp: Well captain, what exactly do you want to know?
15th Jan 2008, 02:17 AM
Capt. Patton: Well... What are the effects of the reprogramming of these implants? Are they fatal?
15th Jan 2008, 02:55 AM
Sharpp: *clears his throat* Well... they aren't supposed to be... but it is possible. There is also a risk of some adverse side effects...
15th Jan 2008, 03:02 AM
Capt. Patton: Ah... Section 31 or not, these are people. They don't need torture...
Cmdr. Bijaj: Captain! These are traitors to the Federation! They would kill without hesitation! They deserve no mercy!
Capt. Patton: Even in situations such as this, we still keep our morales. Move above them. *to Sharpp* Has it had time to affect all the agents with the devices?
15th Jan 2008, 03:07 AM
Sharpp: I... really have no idea. You see, this is pretty much a working experiment. I haven't had the opportunity to do any more than basic simulations, we were pressed for results and I did my best to design something that would cause discomfort to those with the implants, but not severely harm them.
15th Jan 2008, 03:23 AM
Patton sighed and rubbed her forehead.
Capt. Patton: Give it another two hours, then terminate the signal. That should be enough time for it to reach all of them. I want anyone affected to be put into protective custody.
Lt. Cmdr. Shashar: Aye, Sir.
Capt. Patton: Good. Any other orders of business?
15th Jan 2008, 04:10 AM
Shashar sits in his seat, arms crossed like a sulking child while Bijaj just glares at Sharpp and sh'Raazh. She decides to cooperate, for it is no honorable to disobay orders.
Riddle: Nothing else, if everyone can agree to cooperate for the time being.
Bijaj: *grunts affirmatively*
Sharpp: Understood sir... I have nothing else.
15th Jan 2008, 04:27 AM
Capt. Patton: Dissmissed, then. Doctor Lennox, may I have a word?
Lt. Barclay: T-two, please...
The vendor smiled and passed two jumja sticks to the waiting Lieutenant and Ensign. Reg gave her four slips of latium and turned back to Kezi.
Lt. Barclay: Better?
15th Jan 2008, 05:00 AM
Lennox faces the captain and stands at parade rest.
Lennox: Aye, sir. What can I do for you?
Kezi nibbles happily at the super sweet confection and smiles.
Kezi: Much better! I love these things, they're great for a sugar high.
15th Jan 2008, 05:09 AM
Lt. Barclay: Yeah, but sometimes I g-get a headache eating them...
Reg pops the end of the candy into his mouth and chews on it.
Lt. Barclay: *talking around the jumja stick* What do you w-want to do now?
Patton steeples her fingertips and pauses to gather her thoughts.
Capt. Patton: *gently* I realize that you wern't in control of your actions... But three people were injured, including a civilan. I need to know what happened, Doctor...
15th Jan 2008, 08:06 PM
sh'Raazh makes her way to Lt. Riddle, feeling it was better to discuss ensign Zan's predicament in private.
sh'Raazh: Mister Riddle can I have word with you, it concerns the transfer of ones Katra.
15th Jan 2008, 08:22 PM
Kezi walks with a slight skip in her step as she enjoys the pure, sugary sweetness of the Bajoran treat.
Kezi: We could go annoy some Ferengi's...
Lennox gulps as he looks down at the floor. He can tell that this is going to be difficult.
Lennox: Well... It started when a group of Klingons accosted Katian in Ten Forward. I went to her defense and I was challanged to a fight by the male. I accepted, having had experience in the matter. So I met him at the holosuite on the starbase as planned. I had no intention of killing him, certainly. I didn't even plan to injure him too badly, it was never my style to use overkill.
There was something strange about that Klingon, he was so quiet and collected.
Lennox: The fight was normal until the Klingon injected me with something when he got close enough. I soon began to lose my motor control, and my vision was becoming increasingly distorted. The last thing I remember is being hit in the chest with his bat'lef... I didn't really wake up after that, though I was conscious enough of what was happening. Years ago, when I was a prisoner in a Cardassian concentration camp, they had found a way to remotely control me. They used it as a means of torture, because I would not give them my knowledge of Marquis intelligence, and more imporantly to Daro, the information for her to build her bizare battle drones and cyborgs. Well, they did it to me again. Though this time, it was different, I couldn't speak or alert anyone of what was happening. What I can only describe as the presence that occupied my body was on a mission to reactivate the android, Lenore, and capture this ship...
The next part is to be the most difficult to speak of. He actually hurt Katian, he nearly killed her. Just like he killed Taya years before.
Lennox: *starts choking up* I... it, we were in our quarters, they were trying to access security information when Kati came home... she got in the way so It-I... hurt her, quite badly, and locked her in the closet, left her for dead practically... The young man on the turbolift was concerned for my safety, so it smashed his head into the wall. Vado faired the best, a Vulcan nerve pinch, which retrospectfully, must have shattered her collarbone. Then we went to the storage unit where the android was. With a stolen engineering kit, it attempted to revive her. Luckily security stopped them in time.
15th Jan 2008, 08:23 PM
Riddle nods to the andorian woman.
Riddle: Yes, what can I do for you?
15th Jan 2008, 08:34 PM
The captain was to busy debriefing the doctor Lt. Woods and Counselor D'ar had left all ready. Shashar and Bijaj were keeping an annoyingly close eye on her and Riddle but finally decide to leave and head to the bridge. sh'Raazh takes a deep breath. She noticed that Kimble was lurching behind, a brief smile came graced her face.
sh'Raazh: I send ensign Zan on a mission to recover information from his previous host's husband, a Vulcan science officer aboard the Athena named K'vor. Sadly he was killed but he transfered his katra to Zan. Eh we need help to remove his Katra form Zan.
15th Jan 2008, 08:38 PM
Alex hopes that this isn't going where he thinks its going.
Riddle: Well, it would be best to find a Vulcan cleric to perform the procedure, so the Katra can be delivered to Vulcan.
15th Jan 2008, 08:43 PM
((ooc: I'm afraid it is))
sh'Raazh: Normally I would agree but you see K'vor was trying to tell Zan something before he was murdered so you understand that before we send his Katra back to Vulcan we need to know what he was trying to tell Zan. Also I checked the personal files and the only person who comes close to being a priest of any kind is the Bajaron Cardassian ensign Tahlandi.
15th Jan 2008, 08:45 PM
Riddle: *reluctantly* I see... You know, there are plenty of full Vulcans aboard this ship... I am sure one of them might be able to help you with this.
15th Jan 2008, 08:50 PM
sh'Raazh: Yes we do. So do you have any suggestions as to whom, mister Riddle?
15th Jan 2008, 08:52 PM
Riddle: *sighs* Well, no, not really. To tell you the truth, I don't really associate with any of them outside of a purely professional setting, so I have no suggestions.
15th Jan 2008, 09:02 PM
sh'Raazh: We need to move fast because I'm afraid holding the memories of four lifetimes and a Vulcan Katra may become a little overwhelming for Zan
*Medical bay 194*
The medics have their hands full with a Vulcan doctor named S'Reth, she refuses medical help and has locked herself in sickbay threating to release a deathly neurotoxine. Shashar and Bjiaj arrive at the scene escorted with a security team.
Shashar: What happened?
Dr. Syn: She just went crazy, she has killed several people of her own team and now she has locked herself in with several civilians and patients.
S'Reth: Remove security from sickbay or I will release every pathogen we have in storage. Do you want a medical disaster on your conscience?
15th Jan 2008, 09:10 PM
((OOC: I hope its ok is Nori Cat is one of the hostages.))
Riddle: *irritated* Well what do you want me to do, sh'Raazh? I understand that this is a real problem, you outrank me, give me an order.
*Medical Bay 194*
Medic Nori Cat sits in the floor with the other hostages. She doesn't know what exactly is going on, but this Vulcan is quite serious about killing all of them. Then again, when aren't Vulcans serious? She must be a spy, but its hard telling who she is working for. Cat makes a very risky gamble and stands up.
Nori Cat: Doctor, I understand you have a lot to protect. But is it logical to murder a sickbay full of people who have nothing to do with any of this?
15th Jan 2008, 09:17 PM
((ooc: off course. does green/gold outrank blue, I thought they were equal))
sh'Raazh: *angery and desperate* Fine I order you to perform a mind meld to take over K'Vor's Katra.
*Medical Bay 194*
S'Reth: Shut up
The Vulcan doctor has lost her emotional control center (due the device) and is afraid that she will be found out as a double agent amongst other things. She coldly walks towards Nori and slaps her hard in the face. She turns her back and takes a dangerous looking scalpel.
S'Reth: You will make a fine example.
15th Jan 2008, 09:38 PM
((OOC: No, but when you have two officers of the same rank, the one with the most seniority outranks the others.))
Riddle: Aye, but you should really know that I have never done anything like this before.
*Medical Bay 194*
Nori watches as the vulcan comes towards her with a scalpel.
Nori Cat:*terrified* You really don't want to do this doctor... I have done nothing deserving of harm. No one here has.
15th Jan 2008, 09:45 PM
((ooc: and that would be sh'Raazh, I'm not really familiar with military terms thanks for the info))
sh'Raazh: sadly you are the only one I can think of and time is running out fast.
*Medical Bay 194*
S'Reth: Life is very often unfair crewman.
She takes the poor crewman by the hair and holds the cold scalpel against her throat.
S'Reth: I want a shuttle craft and free passage to Romulan space. You have five minutes to respond or I'll decapitate this woman.
15th Jan 2008, 09:52 PM
Riddle crosses his arms and sighs. The proverbial excrement pile continues to increase in size.
Riddle: Very well... where is he?
*Medical Bay 194*
Nori Cat: *quietly* You don't want to do this...
The security officers watch in shock. T'lei is on the scene and approaches Shashar.
T'lei: It will not be logical to meet her demands, she will only go on to harm more people. We need to subdue her as quickly as possible.
15th Jan 2008, 09:59 PM
*Medical bay 194*
Shashar: I don't have the authority to give her a shuttle and you know Federation policy no negotiations with terrorists.
Sh'Reth: Tick Tack toe people time is running out.
A desperate young man launches himself at the Vulcan woman but with one swift move she slashes his throat. The youngster drops to the ground twitching in a puddle of blood. Sh'Reth has forgotten about Nori for the moment as she walks towards the young man and stabs him through the heart.
Shashar: T'lei we need to get in that medical bay and stop her before she slaughters more people. *voice shaking*
sh'Raazh: Computer locate Ensign Raian Zan.
15th Jan 2008, 10:14 PM
*Medical Bay 194*
T'lei: We need to get an engineering team, and quickly.
While Sh'Reth isn't looking, Nori grabs a standard hypospray off of one of the tray tables. The blue band around it indicates that it is a sedative. She hides it in her sleeve and hopes that her captor doesn't notice.
15th Jan 2008, 10:22 PM
Lt. Woods enters the medical bay with a team of engineers. He turns to T'lei.
Lt. Woods: What's happening lieutenant?
Shashar: Doctor we are working on procuring the shuttle but ...
Sh'Reth: I have released a neurotoxine in about a minute the living quarters on deck 7 will be flooded with dopatoxine. Time is running out people.
Shashar: Evacuate Deck 7 ASAP
Sh'Reth is not paying attention to Nori Kat at all she is stalking sickbay looking for her hypospray. She begins throwing things at people, hurting a Bolian woman in the process.
15th Jan 2008, 10:29 PM
While the Vulcan is distracted, Nori gets close enough to charge her and try to inject her with the hypospray. There is a struggle, and Nori is quite worried. She never learned how to fight very well, since it wasn't even necessary to be a part of her home military, and the vulcan is much stronger than she. Still, she is determined to subdue her.
