a body?

Alaxis entered the infirmary and a frown formed on her lips seeing the body floating, the bags on the tables. Walking further into the room she couldn't help a spark of sadness cut through her at the state of the room, the duct tape was Everywhere. A voice suddenly cut through her thoughts and she forced herself to pay attention, 

"Got a suitcase here. Looks to be sealed off completely by tape. Has a note that reads, 'Save her, please" The captain himself spoke to her. She hummed lightly and went over to him and peered at the case, her brows furrowing slightly as she read the screen then her eyes flickered to the duct tape all around it, her frown deepening slightly, 

"5 percent battery..." She looks up at the captain and frowns, "We can't do anything until we've switched that battery. Furthermore, I am not sure entirely what's IN it. It could be anything, something that this .. John Seward... wanted saved could be anything or... anyone."

Wyatt studies the case while the doc performs her assessment. Save her could mean the ship, except for the obvious situation of the case. In his estimation, the case can't hold anything larger than a small child. An animal is possible but why go through all this effort to save one--sacrificing his own life to do so. No. There is but one solution. There's a child in that case. Maybe even a baby.

"Could really use some power 'bout right now," Sung radios his tech team.

Plan B............

As he looked through destruction Pops heard Doc's comments, "Got a suitcase here. Looks to be sealed off completely by tape. Has a note that reads, 'Save her, please" ......."5 percent battery......."We can't do anything until we've switched that battery. Furthermore, I am not sure entirely what's IN it. It could be anything, something that this .. John Seward... wanted saved could be anything or... anyone."

A moment later Wyatt's voice piped in, "Could really use some power 'bout right now."

"Ghorram..sounds like you got some sort of life support in a box over there.....well this unit ain't about to charge any battery let alone power up the ship. Time for a plan B."

"Fox you think you can guide Wolf to the main generator in Engineering? We need to give it up here. If you two head down to the main units...I think we might be able to spear a backup battery out of the shuttle...that might buy you guys the time you need to get things straight."

"Wyatt...I'm going back to the shuttle to see if I pull a battery of two to see we keep that thing you found going a bit longer."

With a Pops made his way out the room and back down the shaft, through the cargo hold. Carefully he made his way back to the shuttle. Boarding it didn't take him long to find the backup power cell, Packing them securely he made his back to the air lock. "Wyatt..on my way back...these power cells should do the trick."

“Pops, Fox your with me lets get to engineering” Looking to Wyatt as he moved out he gave the Captain an old Browncoat sign of good luck. A wink to Alexis and the three of them were on their way……

Quickly the three of them made their way to the ships engines finally reaching a set of doors labeled ‘Back Up Generators, High Voltage, proceed with Caution’ A quick entrance and into a room full of chaos with wires, control panel parts and ripped pieces of duck tape floating around the room.

What had once been a back-up generator was now a mismatch of missing parts, whoever had did this made Fenris’s stomach turn, for it was clear they had, had no go tsao duh* idea what they were doing. As Fenris started a closer investigation he could not help overhear Pop’s call to Wyatt.

"Wyatt...this ain't going to be easy, someone has torn most of the power unit apart for parts...It'll take a bit to see there is enough left to get something on line. Wolf and I will start but may take a bit."

“I have to agree with Pop’s, Captain, this room is worse then Da-shiong bao doo tze** on a good day. I’ll do what I can fast to get it up and running. but no promises”

"How about you start from the out feed and work back into the generator. I'll see if I can find the parts you need....If we can't get this going we may have see if we can do better in Engineering."

“Ok on it” Turning back to what remained of the generators he went to work using his extreme knowledge of engines and such to find a solution. Within moments he could see that his first thoughts were correct, the batteries were completed drained and cold with the generator completely stripped of wiring. The big mechanic that the control panels had been ripped off using a pry bar, the back of a hammer or some type steel rod. The hydrogen fuel cell that fed the generator was cracked so Fenris knew there was no way to restart the generator. Again the big guy could not help seeing that whoever did this was an amateur and in a big hurry. The only one way to get any power to the ship now was to get the engines started and that could only be done in main engineering.

“Liou koe shway duh biao-tze huh hoe-tze duh bun ur-tze, whoever did this left us nothing to work with. We need as you thought,

Pops, to head to engineering and hope we can start the engines.”

Just then Fenris heard the voices of and then Wyatt in his ear.

"Got a suitcase here. Looks to be sealed off completely by tape. Has a note that reads, 'Save her, please" ......."5 percent battery......."We can't do anything until we've switched that battery. Furthermore, I am not sure entirely what's IN it. It could be anything, something that this .. John Seward... wanted saved could be anything or... anyone."
A moment later Wyatt's voice piped in, "Could really use some power 'bout right now."

“Working on it boss but looks like the engine room is our best hope for power.”

"Ghorram..sounds like you got some sort of life support in a box over there.....well this unit ain't about to charge any battery let alone power up the ship. Time for a plan B. Fox you think you can guide Wolf to the main generator in Engineering? We need to give it up here. If you two head down to the main units...I think we might be able to spear a backup battery out of the shuttle...that might buy you guys the time you need to get things straight."

"Wyatt...I'm going back to the shuttle to see if I pull a battery of two to see we keep that thing you found going a bit longer."

As Fenris and Fox headed for the engine room, Pop’s headed back to the shuttle, and in no time his voice was once more heard.

"Wyatt..on my way back...these power cells should do the trick."…………

Now it was up to the big mechanic to get the engines up and running once more…..

(OOC: Any rolls you need to make Roger, lets hope they are good ones)

Further down the rabbit hole.

I still have a bad feeling about this.

 

Fox made his way to follow Pop's orders. He only knew enough about engineering to be slightly more useful than the paint in the air, but damned if he wouldn't do what he could. Guiding Wolf to where he needed to be was well within his abilities.

 

He couldn't help but think to himself, as he glided along in silence, about his comments prior to boarding. Apparently, there was someone here to save. Fox was expecting quite the conversation when they made it back.

 

Still, he maintained his stance. At the time, he hadn't known. And the odds of this exact situation were astonmical. If he'd known there was someone here, of course he would have been more willing to risk it.

 

That's what he kept telling himself. He hoped it was true, too.

ding and a ping

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.

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

<<Working on it boss but looks like the engine room is our best hope for power.>>

<<Ghorram..sounds like you got some sort of life support in a box over there...well this unit ain't about to charge any battery let alone power up the ship. Time for a plan B. Fox, you think you can guide Wolf to the main generator in Engineering? We need to give it up here. If you two head down to the main units... I think we might be able to spear a backup battery out of the shuttle... that might buy you guys the time you need to get things straight.>>

<<Wyatt>> Pops comes back across the radio. <<I'm going back to the shuttle to see if I pull a battery of two to see we keep that thing you found going a bit longer.>>

Staring at the case on the table, Wyatt's mind races with the possibilities. The possibility of this being anything other than a child is becoming slimmer and slimmer the more the captain considers the options. The question that comes to mind, however, is why? Why would the crew give up their lives to give this "child" a chance--slim though it may have been--a chance to survive. What makes this so gorram special?

In the War, both sides would run ops that included bait. Draw the other side in and play on their compassion. Ambush them once they focused on the bait. These operations were surprisingly effective time and time again. And suddenly, Wyatt's hackles are up. Glancing across the room towards the door he considers the possibility of ambush more seriously. Considering their location in the 'Verse, what threat could there be, and why? Bandits? They do roam the trade routes... but they use energy nets, EMP, and--how did they get a hold of the Demeter? This is extremely elaborate and two hours without being ambushed... 

"All right," Captain Sung turns to Alaxis and Alex. "This is all kinds of off. Alaxis, stick with the case. When they get the power back on, I want t' know what's in it faster than fast."

Activating his radio, Wyatt continues, "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."

Squelching the communication, Wyatt informs the doc and pilot of his plan. "Me an' Fox are gonna do some more investigatin'. This whole thing is sitting crossways with me an' we're running shallow on time. Keep your heads on a swivel."

(OOC: Assuming there aren't any objections...)

Stepping into the hall, Wyatt is careful, his thoughts already hovering around the whole ambush scenario. Hand on his Colt, the captain cautiously makes his way back towards the elevator where he is intent on meeting up with Fox.

Once reunited with Castlebrandt, Wyatt explains, "I ain't convinced that there's not somethin' else we got t' deal with here. So, we're gonna go room by room an' clear this coffin."

... OOC: Whatever time passes before...

<<Wyatt..on my way back.>> Pops reports. <<These power cells should do the trick.>>

"Excellent," Wyatt responds, "Let's get this show on the road."

A Ping to heighten the tension

(In his last post Alex inspected the cabinets and the body bags but there was no comment on what he found. I’m guessing this means not much of interest, but he would continue his original search.)

Moving on from his examination of the bodies Alex started to look over the equipment in the sick bay. He wasn’t a medic, but he’d been around his fair share of tech. He inspected it to see what sort of equipment he could find. Was there any sort of data entry point? A place for entering reports? Could he link into it in any way? Or, if they got power, where would he start? These were all just ways of passing the time until they learned more.

 

(Does Alex know about the Ping? Assuming so. If not, ignore the following.)

And then they got the notice about the radiation signal. What the heck was that? That was odd. There was a lot of odd in the universe, but there weren’t that many coincidences. Things happened for a reason – basic physics. Something out there was putting out radiation. Briefly.

He moved to meet up with Wyatt. It seemed that it was time to do a search of the ship. An ambush? Out here? Who would have known that anyone was even coming here? Some sort of timed trap seemed more likely. Regardless, he moved after Wyatt, ready for anything. Adrenaline had been a reality ever since they got close to the ship, but it slipped into high gear as the pair of them began looking. A room by room search. Alex thought it a damn fine idea.

captain's log supple men show

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."
