Underpowered: Disappeared

Postby Bryan Allen » Sat Mar 29, 2014 1:30 am

Senon was now quite glad they had been instructed to leave the Vulcan artifact alone on its trip aboard the USS Xiphos to Sigma Rho Station. He much preferred working with known technology than playing "Will This Kill Me" with items found in the dead of space, or at archaeological digs, or on previously unexplored planets. Although he was fairly sure the Chief of Security wasn't dead, there were far worse fates involving pocket universes, phase shifting, being stuck in some sort of buffer and it definitely wasn't clear whether any of those were the case or not. Senon wouldn't have expected quite so much deliberate and close-up poking and prodding from a Vulcan Science Officer...but then again this was an artifact from an ancient Vulcan colony that they weren't even aware existed until a month ago, so he couldn't really blame Mr. Sutak for the incident (despite the rumors he'd already heard about things going wrong, missing or broken around the CSO).

Senon wasn't quite sure what to make of this sort of frontier mystery. He'd spent many years in an office/lab engineering new products, solving problems and just generally working a standard day job. Prior to that his definition of frontier experience was disgusting smells, broken machinery, backwards worlds and only a tricorder, welding torch and spanner to fix things. There wasn't any unknown...well aside from where the local cooks got their meat. Contrary to popular belief a good portion of Starfleet sat in the back and made things run smoothly, so this "investigate brand new things that no one's ever seen before and will probably kill you" job description was new. He hadn't even gotten the chance to visit his office, Main Engineering or his quarters yet. Ah well. A missing crewman is a problem in need of fixing and an Engineer fixes problems, so normalcy can wait. Senon had a sneaking suspicion it would never return.

We frown upon normalcy here on Sigma Rho. Good log, Bryan, and welcome aboard :)

Underpowered: Grasping in the Dark

Well, talk about trial by fire. It was one thing to create brand new devices from someone else's theoretical research, and another to keep running the top of the line equipment Starfleet produced, and yet another to repair old (but not ancient) technology, but this...this was out of his depth and he wasn't sure what to do about it. This was attempting to identify, characterize and reverse engineer something that was literally alien, even to those of the same species as the original creators of it. It was hard to imagine that this late in his career, Senon would come across something that made him feel like the Cadet in the room again. Thankfully over the past few hours little bits of clues had been making themselves known which was leading to what might possibly be a lead into at least asking further questions about what had happened to the Chief of Security. The Science Officer and Tactical seemed to have come up with a way of tracking what they think is Animim and in the meantime Senon had uncovered some nebulous link between the device and the EM emissions from the station's warp core. Fluctuations in the device seemed to coincide with normal background radiation patterns from the station, as if it were reacting to the presence of the matter/anti-matter reaction. While all this was great and would lead to a wonderful year-long (or more) research project, there was a missing, presumed alive crewmember to throw a wrench in the works. Time was something of which they did not have the luxury.

Underpowered: Miracle Work

Postby Bryan Allen » Sat Apr 19, 2014 1:31 pm

OOC: The following is a joint log with EO Morgan Jensen

Underpowered: Miracle Work

Jensen left the transporter bay of the Xiphos with the designs he'd worked up for the adapter that would create the energy bypass in order to make the adjustments required by the CSO. He made his way hurriedly toward main engineering where he knew he would find the industrial replicators. He had a lot on his mind.

He was surprised by the appointment of a new Chief of Engineering. After his accidental heroics, he thought that position might go to him. Silly thought, really, what with him being just an ensign and all, but hopes were hard to supress. No matter, though, he would work with this Officer Tegan and prove what a good soldier he could be. Unless, of course, these designs turned out to be flawed and he ended up killing Animim.

He reached main engineering and quickly input the design parameters in the best industrial replicator that they had. A few minutes later, he retrieved the output...a small metal box about the size of his fist with three leads and a power indication LED. He
nodded, it looked right anyway, and headed back toward the Xiphos.

He reached the transporter room as set the adapter module on top of the transporter console and reached for a sonic spanner. "Sir, I have the module that seems to be called for. Do you want to check it out?"

Tegan pulled his head out from the wall it was currently jammed in and wiped the sweat from his face as he set aside his tools. "Yeah, let's have a look," pulling out a tricorder. Taking the adapter from Jensen and looking over the tricorder scans of it, he muttered to himself, "Bypass for the couplings, rerouted power cycling, and modifier circuit for the pattern buffer stream." Each item he muttered about was checking off a requirement in his mind and everything looked like it'd be there. He handed the device back to Jensen with a smile, "Yep, silver box, wires, even an on/off switch. Looks good!"

They had both been working hard on modifying the Xiphos' transporter systems in order to have a chance at getting CSEC Animim back into phase with their universe. Apparently, what had started as a individual rescue mission had now taken on a much larger scale as the CSO had discovered there were more entities, likely the ancient Vulcans originally involved, trapped within the phased spacetime. As it was want to do, the practical side of Tegan's brain immediately said, "Oh good, test subjects that aren't 'our people'." He really didn't like the idea of not being able to thoroughly research and test this before involving a critical individual in the process, but the Captain had been clear that Animim was to be part of the first attempt to bring people back in case we only got one shot at this.

As Tegan disappeared half into the wall again he addressed Jensen, slightly muffled. "I've got a few more safety systems to bypass and disable so the blasted computer doesn't think we're as insane as we are for trying this. Get that thing hooked up to the systems and let's run a few simulations. Since we're dealing with phased spacetime here, I don't want to try bringing anything back until we're sure we won't just cause a power surge and blow up the transporter to begin with."

Pleased that the module had met with Tegan's approval, Morgan installed the adapter module. After re-wiring and double checking his schematics, they were ready to do some simulations. As the transporter bay didn't explode, they determined that they'd done everything they possibly could. Not was up to God and Granddad to make it work the way it was suppose to.

Enemy of My Enemy: Different Directions

Something told Senon Tegan that he really wouldn't ever get to be Chief Engineer of Sigma Rho Station. He'd seen the inside of his office and gotten a chance to deal with issues on board the station for a grand total of 2 weeks he arrived. No, the job he'd really signed on for was apparently Chief Engineer of whatever the heck we need you to be, wherever the heck we need you to go. At least he was used to that. His time in the Corps had gotten him used to rushing off to fix other people's problems with limited resources, and just when you thought you could sit back and relax the alarm came in from some other part of the galaxy and off you went. He supposed it was good then that the Xiphos had been upgraded. The majority of the changes made tended to convert the small ship from one intended to scout borders, slip through defenses and go for long periods away from its home fleet into one that was far more capable of standing its ground and providing support to others, but also far more reliant on the close support of the station for longer missions. Xiphos had been stripped down so that it's core functions could be built up beyond initial design specifications. It was an ingenious upgrade that Tegan was very proud to have been a part of, but right now the only meaning he was taking from it was that they'd be back at Sigma Rho before too long, provided the Captain didn't get them killed by the Tzenkethi cruisers of course...

Enemy of My Enemy: Shiny For Now

Missions always seemed to go well when you were in transit. Back in his days with the Corps, it was actually his favorite part. While the other Marines and Engineers he was with tended to hate the monotonous journey on board a Starfleet vessel to get to their final destination, constantly looked upon as second class citizens by the officers required to ferry them around instead of off exploring the galaxy and potentially starting wars, he felt it was an opportune time to relax. After all, arriving at their destination meant grime, problems, backwards people on underdeveloped worlds, being expected to do everything with nothing and more often than not, battle (from those moronic officers constantly going around starting wars). In transit, it always felt peaceful...he supposed it might be something like that meditation Sutak was always doing. Tegan and Jensen had been spending most of their intervening duty days manufacturing and readying small orbital defense platforms. They wouldn't stand up to a direct assault, but Tegan understood that they were more for psychological affect than for physical damage. It said to the Tzenkethi, this colony is worth our support and protection...go elsewhere for your expansion. Somehow he doubted they would like that message.

Enemy of My Enemy: Impending Doom is Tedious

Tegan had spent so much time on and around the Xiphos during its refit at Utopia Planitia that he still felt that it was partially his. It was odd to see anyone that wasn't an engineer on board here and unsettling to have Commander Sumner and not he be in the Captain's chair. Still, having time to work on real engineering problems as opposed to captaining the vessel as he did on their journey from Earth to Sigma Rho was pleasant. And there were plenty of engineering challenges with this latest mission. The biggest of which was getting a mine field deployed with minimal resources before the Tzenkethi fleet arrived. He really wasn't sure how Starfleet expected this mission to result in anything but all out war - either through the destruction of the Xiphos or the annihilation of the colony or both. He didn't envy Command Sumner in the slightest; having to negotiate with no hand at all. But regardless, Tegan was determined to ensure it wasn't Engineering's failings that contributed to that outcome. Xiphos would be in tip top shape, the minefield would be in place, and the orbital defenses would be as repaired as they could be given their state of disuse. Now if they could just get on with the whole dying bit...
