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 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.
