Subject: Okay


Sorry about that. My last game post was ... well it was't a good one.


I have posted supplementary information.


So if I understand correctly, Wyatt wants Fox and him to do a room to room search of the ship to see what they missed? How do you want to run that? this floor, the first floor and then the third? Skipping engineering since Fenris and Fox have already been there? Is jonah going with you are staying in infirmary or heading to engineering.


What do you wish to do with the case? leave it now that you have a power supply and it is good for awhile? Start to revive what is inside? Start looting the lab for the expensive equipment you do not have in  Destiny?


Tann - to start the engines you will hve to start the generator, flip the breaker for the reactor only. get the reactor going and steady. Start the engine drive turning. hit the breakers for life support and ship power. Wait a bit for ship to pressurize and warm up. Turn on the rest of the systems. This is what a Complex action looks like and I will be rolling for each step.

Supplement - Infirmary


Alex inspected the cabinets in the infirmary. They were filled with the usual assortment of bandages, medical supplies and the first aid supplies one expects in a infirmary. The drugs and other liquid supplies were frozen solid, some of the containers now cracked from expansion. Some of the cabinets are very neat and tidy while others look like they were torn apart in a frantic search for something.


The body bags are tagged with Bio-hazard tags and the only information written on the tags is the names “Renfield” and “Helsing”. When Alex feels the body bags, he finds that they do not feel like bodies. Instead there is a lot of bumps and curved surfaces within, but the skeletal remains (ribcage, skull) are detectable.


Supplement – Engineering


Fenris looks over the check list and starts to think it through. Can’t start a fire without a spark. So the mechanic knows he need to get the fusion power plant running and the engine turning. To do so cold, you need a battery backup but the battery backup would be dead. So….


He moved around the engine room looking at the equipment and then saw the first good news since he got on the ship. The engine room has a generator hooked up to a fuel cell.


Wyatt comes over the radio, "Fox, meet me by the lift. Ivy, do me a favor and run a couple o' sensor sweeps jus' t' set my mind at ease."

I have posted to the game


You have a battery to hook up the MedComp. With that you can start reviving the thing in the case if you wish. 


Restarting the engines is possible, it will just take time to reset all the breakers and reignite the burners and get the fusion reactor back up and running. once that is done, it will be a bit until the ship heats up and the air spreads around enough to be comfortable. It is a Formidable Complex action (75 total) with 15-minute increments.  Once activated, it will take 30 minutes for air to reach living conditions without a suit.

Demeter  Day 3, 10:00 pm Ship Time (ST) – Time spent on Demeter: 2 hrs


Jonah moved through the ship to get a battery to the infirmary.  The silence of the ship was getting oppressive now and he missed the sound of engines humming and background noise.  Once he arrived at the Infirmary he looked around at the mess and realized whoever was in the generator room was the same person in here.


Fox and Wolf moved down the corridor that ran between the forward and aft sections of Deck 1. It is 300’ to the aft section through a circular tube with a metal corridor running down in. There is a movator (a escalator kinda thing similar to a thread mill running down the corridor to two directions) on both sides but they are off like the rest of the dead ship. After some time, the two reach the main engineering section. The first room is Engine control and maintenance. A dead man floats in here. His hand is frozen on a clipboard. The name tags on his uniform reads Arthur Holmwood. A pen floats by you, catching the light of your helmet cam as it passes.


The power breakers are all down. The drive is shut down. Assuming Arthur was the mechanic here, he must have shut the engines down by the numbers. A quick check of the clipboard in his hand confirms this. He intentionally shut the engines down while in the black.


The second room is for monitoring power distribution and shield modulation control. There is a small corridor here that leads to the emergency life pods. All 6 pods are still here.  


 


Destiny Day 3, 10:00 pm Ship Time (ST)


Ivy was in the pilot’s chair watching the monitors and wishing someone would ping her or just let her know if everything was okay. She thought of calling on the radio, picked it up several times now, but didn’t want to sound like the scared little girl that she felt like at the moment.


*Ping*


Ivy looked up. She looked at the monitors but they were showing nothing. I heard a ping. What ping?


Nothing on the screens or scanners. Ivy made a face. She pulled up the auto-log of the system and searched through the code until she found her ping. She then looked up what the code meant.


 “High levels of radiation detected” on long range scanner. Less than a second, not enough to set off an alarm but enough for the LR’s to detect. She shook her head. That could be anything out here.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: people


Alaxis, Alex and Wyatt are in the Infirmary


Jonah is moving from shuttle to infirmary


Fox and Fenris are heading to main engineering, down the long tube


On the topic of the case:


I do not wish to tell you what to do, nor give away what is going on in this ship. So from a general perspective, you have a suitcase with a life form in it. You do not know what it is. The case is a stasis chamber now. To move it, you would have to switch the battery, take the oxygen and then haul it down the hall, down a shaft and through another hall and through a airlock doorway to the shuttle all at zero gravity. Now the chances of doing that without knocking, jossling or even flipping the case are not high.  So let's suppose there is a small child in the case - you could easily kill them by moving it. Not to say that you may have to do the fast move, or you decide it is worth it.


Connect Alaxis life support to the case? Yes you could. However, what if the life form is in Stasis for a reason? Like a disease? Or a toxic exposure? Which is why stasis chambers are used in medicine so .... Consider the two body bags are sealed with duct tape along every seam.


Plus there is gravity. The case and whatever is inside it have been in stasis and zero gravity for about 5 years or so. To suddenly rush it to gravity could be quite the shock to the system.


Add to this the mystery of what happened here? I would think you want to know. If not for yourselves, the families of the crew here that was considered traitors and deserters by the independents. You might clear their names. Even without the treasure, the infirmary has a portable xray machine and other equipment you do not. 


Have a Merry Christmas and Happy Hoildays. If I can post today I will,  but I have sausage rolls to bake, people coming over, etc.

Just to make sure it is clear, the engineering section of the ship is at the aft part of the ship. To get there you will have to travel down a 300' corridor which is the long tube in the picture.

Subject: found something


Destiny Day 3, 9:30 pm Ship Time (ST) – Time spent on Demeter: 1 hr 30 minutes


Opening the door to the lift takes some time as the door mechanism is frozen. Seems whoever put in the lift when the ship was built saved some money on cheap parts. After much swearing and the use of strength and a cutting tool to warm the bearings, the door moved free and you were able to get inside the shaft.


The lift was in the lower compartment, making the roof of the elevator the floor to walk on in order to get to the ladders. There were two sets of iron rungs going up to the next level, one on either side. There were no paint flecks in here, until you opened the door that is. The lights from your helmets and flashlights show nothing within the shaft at all.


EVA suits are made to be flexible and the boots are magnetic so you can walk upright, but going up a iron ladder in the dark, with frost layered on the rungs was best if you did not employ the magnetics and used the lack of gravity to move yourself upwards, and the rungs to slow you down.


Once on the second floor you find the door to the corridor just as hard to open, but both Apollo and Pops expected that to be the case and get it open with minimal effort. Once in the corridor of the second level, the group of you split into two. Pops, Fox and Apollo head to the backup generator room, while Wyatt, Alex and Alaxis go to the infirmary.  There is nothing in the corriodrs of note.


The Backup Generators


The doors on this level are standard hatches and do not require power to open. The team moves into the first area and sees a long corridor going down to the aft section of the ship and engineering. You head to the room marked “Back Up Generators. High Voltage, Proceed with Caution””


Upon entering the room, you find a complete mess. There are wires and control panel parts floating around the room. The back up batteries are covered with wires held down by a lot of duct tape. The back up generator has been broken into and salvaged for wires and cables. At least three cardboard rolls that would once held duct tape are floating around in here too. Someone ripped this room to shreds and then did a really bad patch job.  You are merely guessing as you look around but you doubt whoever did this knew very much about engineering.


(You will have to investigate to determine what is what in here)


The Infirmary


The team enters the medical bay. Beyond containing basic medical supplies and equipment, it has a portable x-ray machine, a single diagnostic bed, a storage locker, table and Med-comp computer that hooks to the case on the table. A dead man is in here, floating around, quite frozen. There is a patch on his uniform with “John Seward”.


On the single diagnosis bed are two body bags. Each bag is sealed, then ducted sealed as well and then ducted to the bed. There are tags on both bags and they have something (a body perhaps) inside them.


On the table is sealed suitcase, with wires and an oxygen tubes going into the case. The case is warmer than the frozen interior of the ship and the oxygen lead runs to a series of five oxy tanks, all duct taped to the walls and the lead going from tank to tank.  Tapped to the suitcase is a handwritten note, in English and mandarin reading “SAVE HER PLEASE” There are wires that have ripped out of the walls and reattached with duct tape to the MedComp.


Whatever was done here, it was done in haste. The suitcase is sealed with about two full rolls of duct tape. The empty rolls float about in here too. I The MedComp is set to monitoring the case and is running on battery power. The medical backup battery is at 5% power, hence the distress signal.


Alaxis looks at the MedComp screen. The system is set to stasis-sleep and is monitoring the faint life signs of something that is in the case. Normally you can not put anyone into stasis sleep for longer than a week but whoever did this – presumably John, put the MC into a diagnostic loop so it would not reset itself.

I will be posting soon and I will take the party (who is all together at the moment outside the lift shaft) to the next level, splitting up and to the two rooms that the Captain has assigned the groups. Ss much as I want to build the tension, posting for every section of movement is gonna get boring.


Once you get to those rooms (Back up generators and Infirmary), things will get interesting.

The dent in the doorway you see is not big enough to stop the door from functioning.
