Stardate: 2365.02.07
USS Peregrine, Bridge – 0727


“The escape pod’s transponder is registering it as belonging to the Mirela, a Hekaran science vessel,” Lt Moriden advised, confirming Lt Zai’s initial identification of the pod, “However, I am unable to locate the Mirela on our long range scanners. Both the detection grid and metaphasic sweep aren’t showing anything of note.”

--wheeze--

“I am attempting a magnetic tetryon configuration on the sensors to help cut through the tachyon disruption field,” Moriden continued, pausing to recheck the readings from her console. “Hmmm…”

--wheeze—
Tochi arched a brow at the Benzite woman’s pause; “What is it, Lieutenant?”

“I’m getting through the sub-space disruption,” Moriden answered, her fingers sliding across the console as she spoke, “but the scans are coming back with wildly diverse readings of the presence of life forms on the pod, ranging anywhere between zero to several million.”

Several million? Both of Lt Zai’s brows raised at that and he shot the Captain a dubious glance before moving to stand behind Moriden, studying her display form over her shoulder. He watched as, just as she had said, the lifeform readings lingered at zero, suddenly spiked into the range of three million, and, almost instantaneously, plummeted back to nil. “What the frill?”

Mordien glanced back at the First Officer, offered a faint shrug, and returned her attentions to her console; “Unknown, Lt Zai,” she wheezed, “I’ve been unable to get any sort of identification, at all. They present and disappear, almost before the computer can truly register them.”

--wheeze—

Scowling, Tochi stepped back, glanced at the Captain, once more, then set his gaze on the viewscreen, studying the aimlessly drifting pod for a long moment. As he clasped his hands behind his back, his mouth twisted into a frustrated grimace and he turned, allowing his eyes to sweep the individual bridge stations… Where in the frill is Tesenblen?… he tapped his commbadge…

=/=Lt Zai to Sciences,=/= he snipped, =/=We could really use someone on the bridge. As in five minutes ago!=/=

((OOC: Still with us, Dox?))

=/=Ensign Maize, here, Lt,=/= came the reply, =/=Lt Tesenblen is… uh… indisposed, at the moment. I’ll see if I can get him to…=/=

=/=Him or you, Ensign,=/= Zai interrupted, =/=We want someone at SCI One in the next sixty seconds. Zai out.=/=

“Rock,” he turned to the TAC Chief, then, and thrust a finger towards the viewer, “Can you open comms with that thing?”

((OOC: Anything?))

...covering events on the bridge and possibly one or two NPCs.

That said, power company beat down my door tonight to inform me that, since they'll be replacing a transformer in my neighborhood, tomorrow, I may be without power (and thereby, internet access) from 9 a.m. to as late as 2 p.m. tomorrow.

Took the day off work, as there'd be no work getting done without an internet connection, but can't do much about access to the Inn. Should still be able to connect via smart phone, of course, but posing from one of those things is a nightmare for old dudes, like me!

Anyhoo... nothing major coming in my next post but there is something or two to keep people busy and/or bring them more directly into the forefront.

...you've got fairly free-reign, for the most part, Ayrn. I don't think you're going to "step on" anything by getting ambitious about it.

I was just mentioning to Olan that, in thinking about this scenario, last night, I started pulling some pretty concrete ideas together as to what's what where this little speed bump is concerned. I'm in the process of putting together some semi-coherent notes to share with the "command staff" via PM a bit later.

If you crank out a post before I get that PM sent, btw, and need to ask any question regarding the pod or whatever, just let me know and we can hash out answers.

Just a little fluff post from me, folks. Based on what he's seeing (and, to some degree, some very old memories) Tochi believes the pod to have originated from a Hekaran ship.

Note: The Hekarans are members of the Federation but the pod doesn't match known Federation/Starfleet produced configurations but, instead, a "locally produced" Hekaran vessel. Use that info as you will.

Stardate: 2365.02.07
USS Peregrine, Bridge – 0725


The moment that the Captain’s Ready Room door swooshed open, Lt Zai extricated himself from the command seat and moved to stand, at the ready, just to the right. His gaze still patrolled a circuit from view screen, to helm, to Ops, to TAC; only veering from that course for an instant when Drake approached and took his seat.

"Report, Lieutenant," the Captain ordered after exchanging curt nods with Tochi. "What are we looking at, what do we know?"

“It appears to be an escape pod of some sort, sir,” Zai responded, “Exact configuration and origin unknown, at this point. Ident scans seem to be limited as the result of some sort of EM interference; possibly related to the high tachyon emissions coming from the thing or, perhaps, something from the inorganic matter or debris in the pod’s vicinity.”

Zai moved, then, to the XO’s console and, with a few strokes, filtered data from the other bridged stations to it’s display. “Lifeform scans are similarly affected,” he continued, “We’re receiving sporadic readings but they’re inconclusive, at best.

Not sure where it might have come from, sir, but the residual tachyon dispersal around the thing would seem to indicate it was ejected from it’s parent vessel at warp.”

Captain Drake issued a laundry list of orders across the bridge, then - calling the helm to slow their approach, ordering deeper scans and visuals from Ops, and requesting phasers at the ready from Tactical – before, also, queueing up the Science and Medical departments. "So, what do we have here?" Drake mused, once the orders were distributed, "Is this from a Federation vessel, or someone else?"

“We’re trying to determine that, now, Captain,” Tochi answered without looking up from his own console, “Establishing a tachyon detection grid and initializing a metaphasic sweep in order to see if we can’t get some sort of bearing on the pod’s host ship. If she’s cloaked and still in the vicinity we should be able to locate her…” He tapped the console, then, sharing the feeds with the appropriate stations. “…and, if she passed by and punched the pod at high-warp, we ought to be able to lock on to her wake and identify her telemetry, if nothing else.”

Lt Zai couldn’t help but allow a small grin to tug at the corners of his mouth as, at last, he turned from his console and strode back to take up position at Drake’s right, again. A break in the hum-drum, at last, the Trill sighed inwardly, minor as it may be. His eyes fixed on the viewscreen’s magnified display of the object, then, and, taking a few steps forward, his brow furrowed and his lips skewed into the faint semblance of a scowl. “We can’t be certain, sir,” he intoned after a moment, still studying the viewscreen, “but that doesn’t appear to be a Starfleet pod. If we’re not mistaken, it looks to be Hekaran.”

Subject: Roster update and RP notes


Okay, so I've updated the roster entry for Lt Tochi Zai to reflect some "basic information" for each of his symbiont's four previous hosts - Name, gender, occupation, age at death and/or transfer of the symbiont; total time hosting, etc - (this info is found at the end of the Medical History section), and some of the skills/interest/knowledge Tochi's inherited from each of them (this info found in "Special Skills and Ratings").

As pointed out in the roster entry, itself, please note that, at the present point in game time, it is not commonly known that the Trill are a "joined species" (at least from everything I've read, so far), so very few people will likely know about any "previous hosts" - though they may be well aware of the skills/interests/hobbies he's inherited and/or find it odd that he sometimes talks about "remembering" things that happened well before he's physically capable of remembering. If, at any point, you feel the need to use any of this information in your posts, please contact me first so that we can work out the details.

On the other hand, if your character happens to have eclectic tastes in music, for example; and, one day, happens to ask Tochi; "Hey! You're not, by any chance, related to Dirven Zai, are you?" Feel free to do so... Might be an interesting conversation, especially for an aficionado of the Trillian Mandolin.

Thanks, and continue boldly going,
Eol
