Captain, Your crew is at Atttention
[20:02] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> Thank you Commander.
<@CO-Capt_Chardan> I want to welcome everyone to the SIM tonight. Both our
Medical and Science Officers have requested excusals for this evening. So we will
have to continue without them.
[20:03] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> Any non-plot
questions? Any issues with the website or the like?
01[20:04] <@XO-LtCmdr_McDougal> Do you need me to play medical?
<@CO-Capt_Chardan> No, there shouldn't be a need tonight. If there is something
you are more than welcome.
[20:05] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> I would like to
report, excluding the people on LOA last week, we had everyone turn in a log.
[20:05] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> If there is nothing else,
lemme get the brief going.

[20:06] <&ShipLCARS> 12The Cortana has made a hasty retreat
from the advancing alien vessel. As they were leaving, a file was sent into the
Cortana's main computer. The Captain took this message and has sealed it from
being accessed by anyone bu himself and his Executive Officer. A Senior Officer's
meeting has been scheduled. Please start on your way to the meeting or already
there. Type RAWR here!

[20:10] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> CR> ::Captain Chardan
was already present in the Conference room, sitting at the head of the table waiting
on his other officers to arrive for the briefing.::
::Taking care of a few last things, Viktor checked the time, a slight mutter as
he called to Adian:: Your going to be late
*> ::Lt. Michaels was walking down the corridors from his quarters, thinking
to himself of the close call he had out there with the alien ship. It was good
thing his co-pilot had been studying runabout maneuvers. He arrived at the turbolift
and called it to take him to the conference room::
She came out of her room fixing her pips:: I am not late, you are always early.
I am however right on time.
[20:12] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> ::He rolled his
eyes:: You know, it wouldn' hurt to get there a little early. Now come on. ::He
headed for the door and out.::
[20:13] <@Ops-Ens_Elizabeth> CR> ::Higgins
was right on time hopefully as she stepped into the conference room. "Good
01[20:13] <@XO-LtCmdr_McDougal> ::She kissed
Judge's head and followed him out:: Fine I will set my time piece to read 10 minutes
[20:14] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> CR> ::He nodded:: Evening Ensign.
Take a seat please. We're waiting on the others.
Good.... ::And he'll turn around and set it another 10 minutes early. Heading
with her to the turbolift he called it to take them up::
CR> ::She arrived at the confrence room and gave a nod to those present before
taking a seat::
[20:15] <@Ops-Ens_Elizabeth> CR> :Higgins took a seat
and nodded to the others coming in:
[20:16] <@CTac-LtMichaels> CR>
::the turbolift had brought him to his destination and he made his way into the
room, nodding to recognize those already there, starting first with the Captain::
<@XO-LtCmdr_McDougal> TL> ::She stepped on and make sure his uniform
was straight:: I've been keeping Judge out of your closet.
CR> ::He smiled:: Lieutenant Michaels, You singed my runabout out there. Good
you made it back, have a seat.
[20:17] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> TL> Thanks...
::As the turbolift took them up. he stopped and steped off and headed quickly
for the conferance room.::
01[20:18] <@XO-LtCmdr_McDougal> CR> ::She
walked to the door and it opened, letting themselves in. She moved to her chair
and grabbed a PADD before sitting down::
[20:18] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> CR>::Stepping
in he looked to the others with a slight nod to each as he went and took a seat::
<@CO-Capt_Chardan> CR> ::He nodded to his XO and Chief of Security as
they came in and took seats.:: Alright, let's get started. Miss McDougal, what's
the damage on the runabouts and shuttle?
CR> ::Higgins took out her PADD to take notes:
03[20:21] * Samantha[lurking]
(~aurianada@kdfs-56C4A30E.ec.res.rr.com) has joined #USS-Cortana
* ShipLCARS sets mode: +o Samantha[lurking]
CR> Shuttle three that I was in is still being repaired as all systems were
lost on on that hit. Roundabout 1 and 2 are up and ready to go Sir.
* @CTac-LtMichaels (~Ichabod@kdfs-D266965C.hsd1.al.comcast.net) Quit (Client exited)
* Ichabod (~Ichabod@kdfs-D266965C.hsd1.al.comcast.net) has joined #USS-Cortana
* ShipLCARS sets mode: +o Ichabod
03[20:22] * Ichabod is now known as CTac-LtMichaels
<@CO-Capt_Chardan> CR> Thank you Commander. ::He looked to Lieutenant
Lishan:: What about Engineering?
[20:23] <@CTac-LtMichaels> CR> ::let
out a quiet sigh of relief as he heard the news his shuttle had only been shaken
up a little, but not damaged too much::
[20:24] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> CR>
::He snagged a Padd and kept it at the ready for any notes as he listened to the
[20:24] <@AEng-LtJg_Lishan> ::Looking up from the PADD she was
holding:: The damage to the phaser array has been repaired and all systems are
functioning within acceptable parameters.
CR> ::He nods, looking to Ensign Higgins:: Operations? ::He asked softly, leaning
back in his chair letting his senior officers give reports.::
CR> the power fluctuations on Deck 4, 7, and 9 they have been repaired. :nods:
Though there is still problems with the EPS Conduits near sickbay.
<@XO-LtCmdr_McDougal> CR> Do we need to move patients else where while
they are fixed?
[20:27] <@Ops-Ens_Elizabeth> CR> I dont believe so
as there is a crew working there as we speak
CR> ::He nods:: Make the repairs to the Conduit a top priority. I do not need,
Doctor Williamson up here with complaints.
as long as there is no serious power surge to the area, it will be fine Sir
<@CO-Capt_Chardan> CR> ::Another nod:: Thank you, Ensign. Lieutenant
Michaels, tactical update?
[20:31] <@CTac-LtMichaels> CR> Captain,
when the phaser array was blew out, a few other diagnostic panels appeared to
have overloaded in the area of the ship that was hit the hardest. Of course, engineering
has reported that repairs have already been made to the phaser array itself, and
we've also re-routed all diagnostic functions for the time being; But it'll take
a little time to ensure each of these console get back up and running properly.
<@CO-Capt_Chardan> CR> ::Nathanial nodded:: Coordinate with engineering,
see if they can spare a few more hands to get the work done.
CR> Yes, sir.
[20:34] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> CR> ::Nathanial sighed
a moment.:: I am sure the rumor mill on the ship has circulated that the aliens
placed a file within out computer core. Until I knew what to do with it, I made
it so that only myself and the XO could read it. It was a warning from the aliens,
that should we attempt to invade their space again, we will be fired upon, borded,
[20:36] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> CR> ::A brow raised with
the.... modified.. part. He shifted slightly in his chair::
CR> Modified? Like, say, "Assimulated"?
CR> ::Higgins looked to Michaels then to their commander:
CR> No, no. I believe it's memory modification. It does make sense. The Aliens,
seem to exsist outside of our space and time. And they fluctuate between different
realities. That much we found out from the device engineering and science examined.
<@CSec-Lt_Draven> CR> So.... what are we going to do?
CR> They are xenophobic to the extreme. The Starships that reported the "unusual"
sensor readings in this area, must have been modified much like they tried to
do to us. When we left the station, we were fitted with special shielding, to
protect main systems and engineering. Which is why when they tried to reset time,
those in engineering remembered, and others did not.
Starfleet thought it was just some...random anamoly causing sensors to black out
in this sector. Well we know it's so much more now. As to what we do? We've fulfilled
all the requirements of First Contact. They obviously want to stay to themselves.
<@CTac-LtMichaels> CR> Are you saying there could be other starfleet
vessels in this area repeating the same time loop?
CR> If it is only in this area, can we not let StarFleet know so other ships
stay out of the area?
[20:43] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> CR> No, All vessels
are accounted for that have been through this region. I don't think those vessels
experienced a loop like we did. I think they just had an anamolous reading on
their sensors, and pass by the sectors, memories wipes of anything more.
<@XO-LtCmdr_McDougal> CR> Why did we expereience it differently then
[20:45] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> CR> The Special shielding I
think made all the difference. It protected people and portions of our ship. The
Aliens didn't expect it. And judging from the number of loops, they were stumped
[20:46] <@CTac-LtMichaels> CR> That's true. The one we caught
in the jeffery tubes sure looked surprised when I came up on him.
CR> I plan to send our findings to Starfleet. We are setting a course for the
Enterprise Task Group rally point. We'll be one of the last ships to arrive, but
at least we'll make it. But before we go, we are going to transmit a message into
the nebula. If they are listening they'll get it. It'll contain, information on
Starfleet, our practices, and codes. You never know they may eventually
<@CO-Capt_Chardan> want to make contact with us.
CR> Questions? Comments? Anything? ::He asked, looking around to his senior
[20:48] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> CR> Want me to keep Security
on alert at least till we make it a little farther away?
CR> Yes, continue to run internal scans, to ensure we don't have any more stow-aways.
[20:49] <@CTac-LtMichaels> CR> Well, we know they'll
know an aweful lot about us based on that information we send and having met us.
Were we able to maintain any of the information we know about them in the computer?
::he tapped the side of his temple with two fingers:: Or just what we have up
[20:50] <@Ops-Ens_Elizabeth> CR> ::Higgins was quiet, her own
to do list in her head:
[20:50] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> CR> The Main computer
is protected. And we've not had any unwanted intrusions.
CR> So maybe we can go though the main computer and replay what happened and
figure out why?>
[20:51] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> CR> That will be something
for Starfleet Intelligence to digest. We have done what we can. I'm not risking
the ship by going back and trying to make contact again.
CR> ::Ike made a mental note to write down everything he remembered AS he remembered
it first, before checking with the ship's log of the events. just in case::
* @CTac-LtMichaels (~Ichabod@kdfs-D266965C.hsd1.al.comcast.net) Quit (Client exited)
<@CO-Capt_Chardan> CR> ::Nathanial slowly stood:: If there is nothing
further, you are dismissed. Ensign Higgins, I will need you to prepare to send
the welcome package.
03[20:54] * Ichabod (~Ichabod@kdfs-D266965C.hsd1.al.comcast.net)
has joined #USS-Cortana

* Ichabod is now known as CTac-LtMichaels
CR> ::Higgins nodded to the Commander as she rose:: Yes Sir
CR> She rose to her feet:: yes Sir
[20:55] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> CR>::Viktor
did a fast check in his mind to see if there was anything else that needed to
be questioned. Not thinking of anything he stood::
CR> ::She stood, again looking over the PADD to double check things and moved
toward the door::
[20:57] <@CTac-LtMichaels> CR> ::also stood with
the rest of the sr. officers, having no further questions or things to report::
<@XO-LtCmdr_McDougal> CR>::She looked at Viktor and with a nod to everyone
she followed Lishan out the door::
[20:57] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> ::The
Captain walked out onto the bridge, looking around a moment. Before moving to
his seat, he would bring his console to himself, and would begin to bring up the
package, as he waited for Higgins to get in her seat on the bridge::
<@CSec-Lt_Draven> ::He headed out and down to the security area to meet
his with officers now::
[20:58] <@Ops-Ens_Elizabeth> ::Higgins went to
the bridge and to her console, typing into it:
"Sir, we are now ready to transmit"
CR> ::was relieved be standing again, he went to his tactical station. It was
odd to be on duty and sitting down like he had been in the conference room. He
brought up his usual array of screens on his console, checking on the immediate
status of the ship::
[21:00] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> Thank you Ensign. ::He
would make transfer the package to Operation's control.:: Send it into the nebula,
[21:01] <@Ops-Ens_Elizabeth> ::Higgins typed into the console,
and sent the information into the nebula: Done, Sir
S> ::In the security area he looked over his crew and then started talking
to them. Passing out some tempoary assignments. Before he headed with Ensign Penzak
to take care of some things himself::
[21:04] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> ::He
nodded:: Helm, set a course for Deep Space Nine, Warp 7. Engage.
ACTION: The Cortana would jump into Warp, on a heading for Deep Space Nine.
01[21:05] <@XO-LtCmdr_McDougal> M> She went
to sickbay to check on Dr. Williamson and make sure that the repairs were not
interfering in anyway way::
[21:05] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> ::He looked around
a moment standing from his seat:: Lieutenant Michaels, you have the bridge. I
have alot of information to forward to Starfleet.
Yes, sir. The ship's safe with me.
[21:06] <@CTac-LtMichaels> ::he pulled
a few additional boxes of information to monitor as the Captain gave him the bridge::
<@CO-Capt_Chardan> ::He smiled and would walk towards his Ready Room, stepping
inside of it. And once the door closed he would let loose a sigh. Moving to the
replicator.:: Coffee, double cream and sugar.
[21:09] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> S> ::Constant contact was kept with his
crew as they ran test and checked out the different decks::
RR> ::He would pick up the coffee, and would move to sit behind his desk, turning
his console to face himself, he would take a drink before begining to trasmit
the information to Starfleet.::
