"Kobliad Knights"


 

<GD_CJ>

SUMMARY: The Hyperion has arrived at Starbase 375, where everything seems to be normal, at least for the moment. The Captain has ordered all senior staff to the Ward Room for a briefing before they enjoy their 'shore leave.'

 

<GD_CJ>

<Start - Kobliad Knights>

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Makes her way to the ward room, wondering what she might wear her first night of shore leave::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::sits by the edge of the oval fauxhogany meeting table, sipping a hot Raktajino::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Enters the room, looking around the room before choosing a seat near Rome:: CO: What number rak is that today?

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

CTO: I stopped counting at five. Have a danish.

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

::makes her way up to the briefing room, coffee in hand::

 

<ENG_Ens_Rilu>

::Enters the ward room: CO: Captain, good morning. How is your "shore leave" so far? ::Chuckling, making air quotes::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::smiles:: ENG: No rest for the wicked, Ensign Rilu.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

All: There's fresh brewed Rak and danish by the window.

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

::enters the room, looks around and chooses a seat, sits down::

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

::gets up and chooses a danish::

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

::now sits down::

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

::enters the ward room calmly, though her heavy breathing suggests a recent sprint::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Grabs a croissant, and starts picking at the flaky pastry:: CO: Too much of that, and there's no way you'll be able to relax on your shore leave.

 

<ENG_Ens_Rilu>

CO: I was afraid you'd say that. ::walks to a chair with the window to his back, Sits::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

CTO: So, the usual vacation then.

 

<ENG_Ens_Rilu>

::Nods at AXO::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

CO: One day you might learn to relax ::Then murmers quietly:: So that the rest of us can too

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::looks over at Sara as he sits down and nods::

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

::nods to the ensign, then the Captain, taking a seat next to him::

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

::glances at Feyna, agreeing silently..::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

All: I wanted to touch base with all of you before we head off for some R&R.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

CTO: Lieutenant, any problems with the recent security protocols we set in place?

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

::listens up, this sounds interesting::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Flicks her eyes around the room, before glancing up under her eyelashes at Rome:: CO: No problems sir. Everything is working within expected parameters.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

CTO: Good....I want all official communication devices under surveillance during the leave, that includes commbadges and Starfleet issue commstations.

 

<ENG_Ens_Rilu>

::Settles in PADD in hand, Looking over the most recent warp drive readouts:

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

CO: The entire station? ::Waits for confirmation::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

CTO: Our people only, but that includes station comms.

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Wonders how the hell she is going to monitor individuals, without covering the whole base::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::sips off his coffee::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

CO: So the entire station then? ::picks up the PADD she brought with her, and starts jotting notes, starting with a personal note - SHORE LEAVE CANCELLED::

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

::picks at a corner of her danish::

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

::twirls her thumbs idly, seeming distracted::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

CTO: With your skillset, you will figure out a way Lieutenant. ::makes it clear the discussion is over::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

MED: Doctor.

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

::looks at Captain Rome::CO: Yes sir?

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

MED: What is crewman Wick's condition?

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Focuses on her PADD, with one ear on the conversation::

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

CO: The last time I checked, he was coming down off of the drugs he was on, and his biosigns were almost normal, sir.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::glances over at Sara curiously::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

MED: Any progress scanning the ship for the compounds used on him ?

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

CO: He's now int he Brig. He's been depressed and is feeling very guilty, but the drugs are out of his system.

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

::glances to the Captain, slowly removing her hands from the table::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Types to herself:: Self: How to monitor individuals? Some kind of tag to monitor verbal communication? But how to monitor non-verbal comms, such as text based.....

 

<ENG_Ens_Rilu>

MED & CO: I could pay him a visit if you think that would help. Maybe lift some of the guilt.

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

CO: I haven't found anything other than what was in Amon's quarters

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

ENG: Oh? What did you have in mind?

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Continues typing:: Self: Or a way to cover ther whole station? That would be a lot of data to cover, especially when we don't know any key words to search for.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::looks up as Rilu speaks, then turns back to Rousseau:: MED: Work with Security, I want all parts of the ship searched while the crew are on the station.

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

CO: Yes sir

 

<ENG_Ens_Rilu>

MED: Just so he has someone to talk to, Wick and I had a good working relationship, perhaps he just needs someone to talk to.

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

ENG: If you can help him, that'd be great..

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::looks over at the latest member of his senior crew:: ENG: You can speak to him in an unofficial capacity, Ensign. But all interrogations will go through security.

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Looks up:: CO/ENG: All conversations with him will need to be monitored.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::nods::

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

::flexing her hand around the coffee cup::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

MED: Doctor, I know there's a lot on your plate with running the department, but you are doing a good job.

 

<ENG_Ens_Rilu>

CO: Understandably sir.

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

::smiles:: CO: Thank you sir, I appreciate that

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Throws Izzy a smile, also showing her appreciation in more than upping SB security::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::smiles at the Doctor then turns to face Rilu:: ENG: Ensign, since we have yet to receive a replacement chief, it's been up to you to run your department. Have there been any problems?

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

::smile back at Feyna::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Unconsciously starts fiddling with a piece of hair that has fallen out of the bun, as she tries to solve the communication monitoring problem::

 

<ENG_Ens_Rilu>

::Smiles:: CO: No sir, the engines are running as smoothly as the day they left space dock. I had noticed that the replicators on deck 6 were malfunctioning, but its a small calibration error. It will be taken care of,

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

ENG: Glad to hear it...I want three of your men on duty during shoreleave at all times. ::looks over at Jo:: CTO: And security. We can't take any chances.

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

ENG: Is this the wrong time to say that i'm going to need a larger computer memory allocation, with all the communication monitoring going though Tac?

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

CO: The Tac teams already know they are on rotation, and won't have the whole of shore leave off

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

CTO: Thank you.

 

<ENG_Ens_Rilu>

CO: Roger that. ::Looks over to Feyna:: CTO: Well, it shouldn't be too much of an issue. Should only take about 7 hours or so.

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

ENG: Let's hope there isn't too much comm noise on the station for the next 7 hours then! ::Gives him an amused look::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::finishes his Rak and already misses it::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

AXO: Thoughts, Commander?

 

<ENG_Ens_Rilu>

:;Chuckles:: CTO: If I can keep a few extra crewman on board than maybe only two.

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

::looks up, then between the gathered:: CO: Not on what's been discussed; sounds well in hand. I've been looking over our replacements, and I know the Admiral said they were all vetted, but I think we should have Commander Lyon look into them as well, just to be safe.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::nods:: AXO: Agreed, please assist him if needed.

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Hears about the plans for Lyon's time, and hopes that Miller hadn't had too many date nights planned::

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

::nods::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

All: We have a week of shoreleave, however there is much to do.....take tonight off, get a properly cooked meal and wine. Then report back to work tomorrow. The sooner you finish, the sooner you can get back to shoreleave.

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

CO: Does it have to be wine?

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

AXO: No, Commander. ::smiles::

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

::fist pumps::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

All: Anything else?

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

Self: hm.. properly cooked meal sounds great...

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Looks up to Rome with a look of disbelief, that he would be happy with the crew on the station without comms being monitored::

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

::bites her lip lightly, but says nothing::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

All: Dismissed.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::turns to Sara:: AXO: A moment.

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

::turns to ENG for a moment:: ENG: If you talk to Wick, just... let him know that I know it wasn't his fault.. ok?

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

::nods, having just been about to suggest the same thing::

 

<ENG_Ens_Rilu>

::Nods, and stands up. Looking at MED:: Absolutely, Wick is a good crewman, and needs to know that.

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Walks out of the meeting, heading straight to Tac with her PADD of notes::

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

::nods at Eng, with a quick smile::

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

::clasps her hands gently, waiting for the room to empty::

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

::gathers up her coffee cup and PADD, heading out of the meeting room::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::stands up and moves to the window to refill his cup::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Starts tapping on the console panels, setting up a quick, easy and thorough review of comms sent and being received by the station, programming the data to be stored in a secure set of files::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

AXO: Out with it.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::pours some cream into the coffee and stirs::

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

::takes a deep breath:: CO: I received a coded message from Admiral Walker yesterday, about my next assignment.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::nods as he walks back to his seat and sits down::

 

<MED_Ens_Rousseau>

::heads back to sickbay to brief her staff on the room searches::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Twirls the loose hair, before deciding to continue with the inappropriate monitoring activities by putting a trace on all personnel comm badges issued from the Hyperion, including audio, with the data going into an encrypted secure file, for her personal review only, knowing what some of that data might contain::

 

<ENG_Ens_Rilu>

::Makes his way back to Engineering::

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

CO: He's giving me command of the Bremen.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::smiles and takes a sip of his coffee::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Proceeds to hide any evidence of the monitoring, by making it look like sensor noise::

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

::fails to hide a small smile of her own:: CO: I, uh... I don't know what to make of it, honestly.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

AXO: He came to me a while back, when HQ decided to bring in a more experienced commander for the Rho....I recommended you for deep space exploration....didn't know it would come this soon. ::smiles::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

AXO: The Bremen is a fine ship.

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Takes a look at her work again, frowning, before making the monitoring passive, and then, in the highly unlikely circumstance that it was discovered, that the source of the monitoring is random co-ordinates::

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

::grins at Rome, giving her head a small shake:: CO: She is, from what Henry tells me of her. ::she sighs softly:: I'm ready for this. I know I am. But... I guess I thought I'd get to be working with you a little while longer.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

AXO: I would keep you here if I could, but it's not fair now is it? ::smiles:: You've proven yourself a good commander, and you have been an outstanding First officer Sara. This is the next step.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::reaches out and squeezes her hand gently:: AXO: Thalev would be proud.

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

::lowers her head, blinking back a few tears and nodding:: CO: Yes, he would... and I know you are, too.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

AXO: Immensely.

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

::lightly wipes at her eyes:: CO: And you know, Captain, if you ever need any help, with any of this stuff... if you need someone on the outside... all you have to do is call.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::clears his throat::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

AXO: I will..that goes both ways.

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

::smiles, before getting up and giving the Captain a strong hug::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::hugs his old friend:: AXO: Dinner tonight?

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

::nods:: CO: Absolutely.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

AXO: Chef's making bolognese. Bring red.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::sits back down and activates the slide-out monitor::

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>

CO: The wine, or the fishnets? ::grins, making for the exit::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

::chuckles::

 

<AXO_Cmdr_Sumner>
