U.S.S. Hyperion - 11409.01, Mission #18

"Rosetta"


 

SUMMARY: With the ship in danger of being destroyed, Borg wreckage coming to life on the planet's surface, and the XO face-to-face with a functioning Borg drone, things seem pretty dire. The Projection that spoke with Captain Rome seemed sure he could end this, thought what the 'great cost' he mentioned was went unexplained. If that doesn't work, Rome is determined to obliterate all traces of Borg material on the planet.

 

<<<Resume Mission>>>

 

<XO_LtCmdr_Danann>

@ ::stands totally still, her rifle trained on the drone in front of her::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#aOPS: Did he just say...one of ours is joining him?

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Has just exited the shuttle with Douglas, and makes her way up towards the bridge::

 

<Drone>

@::stares passively at the Commander:: XO: You are the one from the surface?

 

<aOPS_Fales>

::shrugs lightly:: CO: Maybe Commander Danann?

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#Self: Fu--

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#aOPS: See if you can get through to her!

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::Stands over the patient, still releasing pressure from his chest cavity:: Self: I hope we get a doctor soon.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::heading up the ladder from junction Alpha 5::

 

<XO_LtCmdr_Danann>

@ ::brow wrinkles. This isn't how the Borg acted in any of the accounts she had read:: Drone: What is this place? ::holds on to her rifle very tightly, thanking TAC in her head for throwing it to her hours before::

 

<aOPS_Fales>

::tries, only to find they are still jammed:: CO: No good, sir. Not while this beam is firing.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::exiting the jeffries tube and stepping onto the bridge::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Is still climbing through the jefferies tubes with Douglas and Rousseau::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#aOPS: Keep trying. And get me an update from Engineering!

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#::looks up as a hatch spings open:: MED: Doctor, am I glad to see you. We have wounded.

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Finally gets onto the bridge, and stretches for a second, wiping the sweat off her forehead:: CO: Captain, What did i miss?

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#::points at Tactical:: CTO: We have all tubes being loaded with quantum torpedoes and aimed at the wreckage. Do not fire until I give the order.

 

@XO: This is the control room, where the planetary systems are housed.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

CO: Where, sir?

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

CO: And the signal you are waiting for is?...Sir?

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#MED: The lounge.

 

ACTION: The patient responds well to the release.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#CTO: Damned if I know. ::sits down in his chair::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Heads over to Tac, whilst stretching her neck to remove the cricks:: CO: Sounds promising.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

CO: Yes sir, I'll head back down there now

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#CTO: See what you can do about comms too.

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

MED: Don't pull anything in the jefferies tubes.

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

Crewman: His pulse is starting to get weak, get me 10mg of norepinepherine.

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Starts tapping on the console, looking to see what it is that's hindering the communications::

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

CTO: Sorry?

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ ::taps her comm badge:: *Hyperion*: Danann to Hyperion... come in immediately...

 

ACTION: There is no response.

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

MED: Those jefferies tubes aren't kind on muscles. Just trying to pass on good advice.

 

@XO: Your ship is being jammed. I have lost control of the threat-neutralization beam.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

CTO: Yes ma'am ::smiles::

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::The crewman passes a hypospray with the required dosage to Soule, who immedietly administers it to the patient:: Crewman: Thank you. ::He smiles/grimmaces::

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ ::tries again, ignoring the drone's words:: *Hyperion*: Danann to Hyperion... come in this... second... ::voice peaks on the last word, her breathing speeding up::

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::exits the Bridge and begins the long crawl back to the lounge::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Gives one of her rare smiles to Rousseau::

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ ::suddenly stops what she's doing and looks at the drone:: Drone: You didn't say "we"...

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Continues to work on the systems, trying to establish contact with Danann::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#NAV: Mr. Gunn, can you use emergency thrusters to stabilize our orbit?

 

<Drone>

@::studies her for a moment:: XO: I am not one of the machine men. When they crashed, I took one of their husks. It has proven useful.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::a few minutes later, exits the Jeffries tube at the hallway just outside of the lounge, emerging and stretching her muscles::

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ ::her aim wavers:: Drone: What are you, then?

 

<Drone>

@XO: I am the Guardian; the last gift from the Zaia to their Children. I run the planetary defenses, as well as the dampening field that keeps them hidden. However, it has become necessary to terminate my existence.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::enters the lounge and takes stock of the patient situation::

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::Notices Rousseau walk into the lounge:: MED: Well praise bloody Kah'less.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#::grabs the sides of his chair:: NAV: Mr. Gunn?

 

<NAV_Cdt_Gunn>

CO: I am attempting now sir. ::tries to activate emergency thrusters::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Shakes her head as she looks at what information she can get from her internal and external sensors:: CO: The beam is flooding us.  There's a very small chance that I can deflect some of it off the comms, but I can't guarantee that it will clear it enough to be able to establish communications

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#CTO: Try damnit.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

TAC: What's the situation here?

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::taking her medkit off her shoulder and opening it up::

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ Drone: wh-uh... ::thinks in silence for a moment, chewing her lip, catching up on all that has happened:: Drone: I'm sorry... look this has been a very long day, and I haven't eaten in... well, it feels like ages... You're gonna have to give me a second here... ::turns on the spot, her rifle lowering as she does:: Drone: Why do you have to terminate your, y'know... your existence?

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

CO: I'd have to reduce the efficiency of our sensors to do so Sir

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#CO: It's a chance we have to take Lieutenant.

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::Looks down at the male officer before back to Rousseau:: MED: He has a flail chest, which has caused pnuemothorax. His chest cavity is constantly filling up with air, causing a compression of his heart and unpunctured lung. I've pierced his chest with a cannula to let some of that air out, and administer norepinepherine to stabalise his pulse.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::scanning the patient that Douglas is working on::

 

<Drone>

@XO: As mentioned, I have lost control of the defense beam. The Machine Men's technology has integrated with mine. If nothing is done, your ship will be destroyed. You Captain desires to use your weapons on the wreckage, but that would endanger the Children. The only option it to shut down the planetary defenses entirely.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

TAC: ok, leave in the cannula so the air continues to escape. Have you given triox?

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#aOPS: Anything from Engineering?

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

MED: I've got people looking for some, thy're also on the look out for any Lectrazine

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Nods:: CO: On it Captain.  ::Starts to filter off some of the noise from the comms array onto the sensors, trying to continuously establish a comm link to Danann::

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

TAC: have you given Triptacedrine? If not, I have some in my medkit, same with triox

 

<NAV_Cdt_Gunn>

::uses his console to bring online the Aux. thrusters::

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ Drone: That will leave the Children defenseless... maybe... maybe with two of us here we can regain control somehow? I'd really like to find a way so that no-body dies... ::looks around for controls she might understand::

 

<aOPS_Fales>

::frowns some:: CO: They've managed to keep the important bits from shutting down. Foxworthy has an idea to try and siphon off the excess energy into space via warp plasma channels, but it will take some time.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::fills the hypospray with the appropriate dosage of Triox from her medkit::

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

MED: Well arent you my hero Doc. I nearly killed a LJG for not having any Triptacedrine for an unfortunate officer who needed her leg set.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#aOPS: It's faster to shunt them through the phaser arrays.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

TAC: I have a few doses, how many patients do we have? ::looking around::

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

MED: I had to swap dulling of pain, for tolerance of pain. She still screamed herself unconscious mind you.

 

<Drone>

@XO: They will not be entirely defenseless. The Shroud is not controlled from here, but from the Parent star. Once it reactivates, the Children will be safe for another age.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::doses the lung puncture patient with Triox, followed by Triptacedrine::

 

ACTION: The Auxilliary thrusters come online, slowing the ship's descent into orbit, buying them precious minutes.

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::Looks around, taking another sweep of the room:: MED: Well mostly minor injuries to be honest, some of these people need to man up, but as you can see we have a few severe cases.

 

<aOPS_Fales>

CO: Foxworthy was concerned about burning them out.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#aOPS: It's very likely...but trust me, I've done it before on much older vessels....she'll handle it.

 

<aOPS_Fales>::nods:: CO: Aye, sir. I'll let them know.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

TAC: It looks like this gentleman here is our top priority, followed by the officer with the broken leg. Here, give her a dose of Lectrazine. She'll need it when she wakes up. ::Hands Douglas the hypospray with the Lectrazine::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#aOPS: Tell him if we're out of time....do it. But it's his call for now.

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ ::nods:: Drone: ok, but you... you're a lifeform we've never encountered before. And frankly, you seem a lot cooler than you look right now. ::walks up to the drone::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Continues to slowly bypass the noise, using the sensor arrays::

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::Winks at the Rousseau, as he takes the hypospray:: MED: Thanks Doc. Got any stimulants by any chance, I think I need a pick me up.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::scanning the punctured lung patient with the medical tricorder::

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::Turns  to administer the hypospray to the leg patient:: MED Possibly a hypospray full of caffiene.

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Tries to intiate contact with the Commander:: *XO*: Feyna to Danann, please respond if you receive this.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#NAV: Mr. Gunn, report.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

TAC: He's going to need surgery as soon as we can get him to sickbay. His broken rib has punctured the lung, there's a possibility of bleeding into the pleural cavity

 

<Drone>

@::takes a moment to process the expression:: XO: Thank you. But it is my duty to protect the children, even if it means my existence. ::he moves over to a nearby console:: Unfortunately, I cannot terminate myself. I require your assistance.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

TAC: Heh, I'm fresh out of caffeine..

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

TAC: I could use some myself

 

<NAV_Cdt_Gunn>

CO: We can go on for now, but the clock is ticking ::feels nervous::

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ ::takes a half step back, hears CTO's voice crackling through:: *CTO*: Danann to Hyperion! It's good to hear you! Can you get a lock on me?

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::Turns back to the lung patient:: MED: I know. I tried the best I could to stabalise him.

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

MED: Anything stimulating then?

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#NAV: Use whatever means to keep this ship in orbit until Engineering can get our engines back online. I need ideas.

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ Drone: How long has the ship got before it's too late? You can't just introduce yourself to a girl and then... ask her something like that!

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

TAC: He seems to be stable for the moment, but keep a close eye on him. I'm going to have a look at this officer's leg next. You've done a good job by the way

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::scanning the officer's broken leg with the tricorder::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#NAV: And Cadet? Good work.

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Softly hits the top of the console in frustration, as the comms can't get a secure lock::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Continues to try and remove the noise and establish a decent transporter signal::

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

TAC: You've set the bone?

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#::runs a hand through his hair and sighs, then hears Danann's report over the comm:: CTO: Tell her she has to shut that beam down!

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

MED: Thank you. What's the SitRep on the bridge by the way, I forgot to ask.

 

<Drone>

@XO: Not long. ::looks at her passively:: I do not have your emotions, but I understand them. I know I ask much of you, but you have met the Children. Would you agree that they are worth saving?

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::Looks over his shoulder at her:: MED Yes, I set the bone. Two officers threw up in the corridor.

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

CO: Captain! We have comms with Danann!

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

MED: It was all rather unpleasant for everyone.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

TAC: Everyone's fine up there, the captain was insistent I get down here right away, so I didn't stick around too long. Comm is still down and they're working on restoring it. Also there's some kind of projection up there, which I didn't have time to get a good look at

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

*XO* : No joy on the transporter lock, too spotty. But i'll continue to work on it

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ ::nods emphatically:: Drone: Yes, yes they are, absolutely! But to do this... ::takes a deep breath:: Drone: Goes against everything I have been taught, everything I believe... ::hefts her rifle:: Drone: I kill in self-defense, not in cold blood... ::turns on the spot, desperate to find a way out of this impossible situation::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

*XO*: If you can find a way to shut that beam down, then we will be able to transport you back

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

TAC: without painkillers.. that must have been painful, apparently for everyone

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ *CTO*: Dammit! Just... keep your eye on me. I'll- I'll get back to you! ::voice, even over the distortion, sounds strained::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

*XO* We won't willingly go anywhere Commander

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

MED: I flooded her system with Norepinepherine before hand. As I mentioned earlier, still screamed herself unconscious. Two officers left the room, and that lieutenant behind you is in shock ::Points behind her::

 

<Drone>

@::turns to face the Commander:: XO: One artificial intelligence, or hundreds of innocent life-forms, perhaps the only ones who will never have to know the strife inherent to the galaxy. This was the desire of the Zaia.

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

MED: Can you handle everything down here, they may need me on the bridge.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::doses the leg patient with 10 ccs Triptacederine painkiller::

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

TAC: I can handle it from here. Go ahead

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ ::shoulders slump, tears welling in her eyes:: Drone: Show me what to do...

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::Nods at the doctor before running off out of the room towards the jeffries tube:

 

<NAV_Cdt_Gunn>

CO: See an asteroid going pass the planet and will try to use it´s gravity to pull us up :: slingshots ship back into orbit::

 

<Drone>

@::turns back to the console:: XO: You will need to input the proper sequence.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#::grabs the sides of his seat:: NAV: Hell of a move Cadet....let's hope it helps....just. Don't crash us into that thing.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::grabs the nearest cadet:: Cadet: Is there access to sickbay yet?

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::Enters the tube and begins to climb up the shaft towards the bridge::

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ Drone: OK... ::whispers:: Self: I'll pay for this later...

 

ACTION: Everyone on the ship has their stomach lurch as the ship is suddently pulled upward by the slingshot. The ship is not out of danger, but it has bought yet more time.

 

<NAV_Cdt_Gunn>

::full power to aux. thrusters to stabilize orbit::

 

<Drone>

@::brings up the proper menu:: XO: I have one last request.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#::lets out a breath:: NAV: Where the hell did you learn to drive, kid? ::smiles::

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::Gets flung about a bit in the jeffries tube, Holding onto the ladder for dear life::

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ ::looks sideways at the Drone, silently, all the bravado gone out of her expression::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Grabs hold of the console as she decides she's glad she didn't have a cup of herbal tea on the console, and wishing the Captain had had a raktajino::

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

Self: The hell is going on up there

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::attempts to keep the patients from rolling around:: ALL: Help me with these patients to keep them still!

 

<Drone>

@XO: When I am gone, open the front panel of the console behind us. In it, you will find a data archive. It contains the combined knowledge of the Zaia, with the exception of this planet and its children. The Iconians removed us from history. It is my desire that their efforts are in vain.

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::Finally reaches the top and opens up the hatch, carefully climbing out::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#aOPS: Fales, what the hell is taking Foxy so long?

 

<NAV_Cdt_Gunn>

CO: Move from centuries ago from the Gunn Sir ::dries the sweat of his forehead::

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::checks on the two worst-off patients, making sure the ships movement didn't exacerbate their injuries::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#::chuckles:: NAV: Tell it thanks. And you owe me that story when all of this is over.

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ ::nods gently:: Drone: I'll see to it.

 

<Drone>

<aOPS_Fales>

::shakes his head some:: CO: He says their estimation of the energy was off.

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::Takes a deep breath as he walks onto the bridge:: CTO: Leftenant, what the SitRep ma'am?

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

*Bridge: I've stabilized the worst of the patients, beyond that there's only minor injuries. Self: I hope that went through

 

<Drone>

@::pauses briefly before wearing an approximation of a smile; he then looks to the console:: XO: Bird, Spider, Child, Child...

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#aOPS: Tell him to get his estimates right then! We don't have much time...despite Cadet Gunn's ingenuity.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

*Bridge: I should say, we've stabilized - Douglas was a big help down here. he's on his way up to you.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#NAV: How much time do we have, Cadet?

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ Drone: Bird, spider, child... child. OK... ::presses her lips hard against each other.:: Drone: This is no way to end a first date, by the way... ::tries to smile but fails, turns to the console in front of her and searches out the right buttons::

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::checks on some of the other minor injuries in the lounge::

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ ::finds and presses the bird, then the spider. Sniffs and blinks back her tears, so she can make out the shape of the child symbol. Presses it once, hesitates then presses it again::

 

<Drone>

@::takes a moment:: XO: Snake, snake, snake...

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#::his comm comes online:: *MED*: We are receiving you, Doctor! We have Douglas, I'll pass on the thanks. Do what you can to keep your patients safe...

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ ::sees the snake button, and rests her finger on it, speaks as she presses it:: Drone: Snake.. snake...snake.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

CO: thank you sir, I will sir

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

CO: What are my orders Captain?

 

<NAV_Cdt_Gunn>

CO: We are getting the the last episode Sir

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Continues looking for a way to establish a transporter lock, despite the beam::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#TAC: Prepare the crew...for atmospheric entry.

 

<Drone>

@::looks to Danann for a moment:: XO: Thank you. ::he smiles one last time, this one somewhat more natural, before the drone falls lifelessly to the floor::

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::Eyes open wide:: CO: Aye sir

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#::raises an eyebrow:: NAV: There's more to be continued I hope.

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::Accesses the internal comms and relays the message:: Hyperion: All hands, prepare for atmospheric entry, batten down the hatches, and secure yourselves because this is going to be a bumpy ride

 

ACTION: Just as all hope seems lost, the beam ceases, power fully restored to all ship's systems.

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ ::gasps a deep breath and pulls her hand away from the console like it just burned her. Looks at the husk on the ground, raises a shaky hand to her comm badge:: *CTO*: Feyna! Report!

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#::sees the power come back online and stands up:: All: She did it!

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::notices the ship seems to have stabilized, breathes a huge sigh of relief::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#NAV: Restore our orbit!

 

<NAV_Cdt_Gunn>

CO: AYE SIR! ::Punches the console to get the ship in stable orbit::

 

ACTION: The ship stabilizes its orbit, and begins to pull away.

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

*XO* Beam is down. Prepare for transport

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Establishes a transporter lock on Danann::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#TAC: I seem to have jumped the gun.

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

CO: About to beam the Commander aboard Captain.

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ ::feels totally unwilling now to return to the ship, but knows she can do nothing else here:: *CTO*: Energise when ready, Lt.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

*Bridge Do we have all systems back? I need to get these people to sickbay

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#CTO: Straight here, please.

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ ::eyes widen, has mere seconds to rush to the console and grab the archive::

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Presses the magic button to energise the transporter, with the destination being the bridge::

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::eyes widening:: Self: what was that about atmospheric re-entry?

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#*MED*: Aye Doctor! ::nods to Fales:: Emergency transporters are at your disposal.

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::Increases power to the inertial dampeners to compensate for entry::

 

<aOPS_Fales>::transports the wounded to sickbay::

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

@ ::hugs the archive to her chest as she disappears in a shimmer of blue light::

 

ACTION: Danann materializes on the bridge.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#TAC: Threat analysis.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

Transporter room: Site to site emergency transport, 3 to beam directly to sickbay.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

#Transporter room

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#::turns to face Danann:: XO: Commander. Report.

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Smiles genuinely as she see's Danann materialise on the bridge:: XO: Good to see you commander

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::Begins scanning the planet and the structure::

 

<NAV_Cdt_Gunn>

CO: Ship is in stable orbit SIR

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

::looks absolutely shell-shocked. Her uniform is grubby and torn at the knee and shoulder. She has countless little scratches to her face and neck and she's holding an alien object in her arms:: CO: Hill is still down there, sir... CTO: Can you get a lock on him?

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

::Tries to establish a lock on Hill::

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::Sigh of relief upon noticing the commander and smiles seeing she still has his rifle::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#::looks over at Gunn:: NAV: Well done, Cadet!

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#::looks back to Danann, then Feyna::

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

CO: All Borg systems and components offline sir.

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

CO: Also, I've detected a number of lifesigns.

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

::looks side-long at CO, wondering exactly how to tell him nothing without him blowing up at her::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#TAC: Borg?

 

<CTO_Lt_Feyna>

XO: I have a lock. I'll transport him over now. ::Initiates transport of Hill::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#XO: The threat?

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

CO: No.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#TAC: Then shut down your scans.

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

::Turns suddenly at TAC's report:: TAC: There were some primitive mammals, insects down there.. nothing to worry about.

 

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

CO: Everything is as it should be planet-side, sir.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#XO: So..I guess we ... leave?

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

::Thinks about the captains order and Dannans action and report, understands:: CO&XO: Yes sir and ma'am

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>

XO: I see you saved my gun.

<XO_Lt_Cmdr_Danann>

::nods slowly:: CO: That would be my recommendation, affirmative... ::relaxes slightly::

 

<NAV_Cdt_Gunn>

::Looks at the captain for the go a head::

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::begins preparing patients for transport::

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#::softly places his hand on Danann's shoulder for a second:: XO: You did good.

 

<CO_Captain_Rome>

#NAV: Mr. Gunn, please launch a series of probes and program them to quarantine this system. No vessels are to be allowed to enter this system after we leave.

 

<MED_Cdt_Rousseau>

::Arrives in medbay with two badly injured patients. Has the medical assistants help the The lung-puncture patient onto a bio bed to prep for surgery.::

 

<TAC_Cdt_Douglas>
