INTERREGNUM EP 01-02: Low Profile & New Blood August 17, 2012, 02:44:57 PM INTERREGNUM EP 01-02: Low Profile & New Blood[ Captain's Ready Room | USS Theurgy | Deck 01 ] Attn: Edena Rez.The quiescence was rare aboard, even though it was always marred by the hum of the ship."Captain's Log, Stardate 57505.9," said the male form of Jien Ives quietly as he slid a whetstone along the edge of his dai-katana, "One week has passed since the USS Relativity showed up in our most dire need. We have set course for the Nimbus system, where we hope to trade for spare parts and supplies that our replicators cannot handle. Our course is laid along asteroid belts leading to the remote Neutral Zone in the Federation-Klingon border. We travel with extreme caution and with extra power diverted to our sensor arrays. I have ordered an away team to head for Nimbus III and Paradise City, where the team might begin to trade for spare parts and supplies ahead of our arrival."With slow movements, Jien changed the stone for an oil-cloth before continuing."Sickbay is in sore need of medical supplies after all the fighting we have been through. Luckily, it seems that Paradise City has a good stock according to reports in our off-line Database. Therefore, after he volunteered to do so, I have decided to let our Chief Medical Officer lead the away mission to Nimbus III. This so he would be able to trade for our most needed medical supplies. To determine the possible availability of usable material and tools for the repair of our ship, Lieutenant Kae from Engineering will accompany him. I would have liked to send Mr. Neotin instead, yet the dry climate would not do well for him. Our Holographic Specialist has at least done some work on Thea before he leaves, and the XO and I have a new report to contemplate. For last, given that they will need a pilot as well as protection, a Tactical CONN officer has been picked as the third member. Ensign Skye Carver will be piloting the Runabout and make sure the team does not run into trouble in the quite... disreputable Paradise City."Rising from his chair, Jien walked to his cabinet and placed his sword upon its stand. "Furthermore," he said and turned away, "it seems the crew if coming to terms with what happened at Niga. Only some of us will have to live with the consequences of our corrupted actions, and try to tell ourselves that what we did was not our own acts, but the depraved influences of an alien virus. A small comfort, for some of us, yet at least there is hope for our primary mission - that we will succeed in our ultimate endeavour."Seating himself again, Jien picked up a PADD that had happened to stay upon his desk. He had picked it up again, and read the personnel file of Commander Nerina once more. She had been the anchor against his self-doubt, and now she rested in stasis - all because of his weakness.[ Away Mission to Nimbus III | Upper Shuttle Bay | Deck 06 ] Attn: Ens. Skye Carver, Lt. Lin Kae + 1-2 more (first to post gets the spot!)The Chief Medical Officer arrived to the shuttle bay with a makeshift pack casually thrown over his shoulder. Since the team was to enter Paradise City incognito, Lucan wore traditional Câroon attire which would fit well in the desert of Nimbus III - billowing white fabrics and his feet bare with his hair combed back with essential oils. It felt good to be out of the suffocating Starfleet uniform for once, and it was with high spirits that the doctor dropped his pack in front of the Runabout.The beast inside was jubilant too, for they saw this as the perfect opportunity to escape the cruel fate of the USS Theurgy.However, Lucan was not entirely convinced he should kill the officers that had been picked by the Captain in order to steal the Runabout. No, perhaps there was a better way; a way that would not cast suspicion upon him in the case his actions were revealed in future interrogations with crew from the captured USS Theurgy. He mulled over this problem as the others came to join him by the Runabout, and he looked up to greet them with a kind smile. Lieutenant Kae and Ensign Carver.Inside, the beast bared its fangs - images flashing before his eyes where he fucked their severed heads."We will head out along the same course as the Theurgy towards the Neutral Zone, only travelling at Warp 5 in order to get there twenty-four hours in advance - giving us so much time to trade for all the supplies we might need. We will stock what we will find until the Theurgy arrives, and store it in a way so that it all quickly can be beamed into the cargo bays when the Theurgy enters orbit. After the Transports are made, we will rendezvous with the Theurgy with our shuttle by the fifth planet of the Daran system."Shrugging a little with a smile as he looked between the two, Lucan folded his tattooed hands behind his back. "That is it. Those are our orders. Any questions before we move out?"Before they left, however, there might have been others who had made a last-minute request to their superior officers to join the away mission...[ Sickbay | Deck 07 ] Attn: Khorin DouglasAn indicator flashing on Thea's medical view screen, she turned around to verify the alert to be true.As it was indeed so, the hologram put her PADD down on a table and quickly made her way over to the Recovery Ward - wearing her teal chameleon bodysuit since she was assisting medical now that the CMO was heading out on an away-mission.Wolf-06 was covered in his post-surgery medical blankets, hair washed and brushed by the Nurses after the recent chaos that had been Sickbay had turned more tranquil. Thea picked up a medical tricorder once she entered his vision, standing next to him as he was coming to. "Well hello there, 'Lieutenant," she said in greeting, her brown eyes darting from the display and to his eyes. She attempted a smile, Dr. Nicander having reminded her about proper bed-side manners. "How are you feeling, after your brush with quietus?"They were alone, save for a few personnel in the back of Sickbay that were looking over the others that were awakening after surgery. Unsurprised at the lack of an immediate answer, Thea let her smile turn more warm. "Do not worry. The readings tell me that your body is already recovering, so just relax," he said and put the tricorder away, "You are a fighter, so you can count on making a full recovery if you just push yourself through rehab for a couple of days. I will be there every step of the way to help you on if so needed."Then, the Ship's AI proceeded to tell him what had happened and what had been done to treat him - giving him the usual patient's review of what had been done in order to preserve his health and his life. She told him about the need to stabilise him during emergency surgery and then dealing with all his afflictions during a six hour second surgery. She also told him about the condition of the ship, and where the Theurgy was heading.For last, she told him about the recent events on Niga.[ Gymnasium | Deck 07 ] Attn: Anyone. However, there is complete freedom to pick some other place on the ship to write a scene.That day, the Andorian had her heart set on the punching bag in the gym. In the locker room, she was sitting on a bench, wrapping her hands in tape, getting herself ready for the workout. Once both fists were prepared, she grabbed her black and white boxing gloves - matching her shorts and sports bra - and made her way into the gym.When ThanIda entered, she did not look at anyone. She tossed the small towel she had with her beside herself, and some male Enlisted - technicians and others - whom did not know her role aboard had first jeered at her in their private conversations. They probably thought her pretentious in how she hoisted up the heaviest sack and and put on the gloves. They might have thought her the artist, seeing her draw people in a corner of Below Decks, and thought her no measure past the regular Starfleet Academy training.Yet oh, the sand bag got a heavy pounding, despite the fact that she was a female. The reason, as it was plain to herself; that she was raised to be in the Imperial Guard on Andoria. Two jabs and a side-kick. A five-way combination followed while Ida hissed through her teeth at each impact, ending with a spin-kick that drew a ragged grunt from her throat. And thus, she wore on... spending herself completely to take her mind off the things she had done - infected or not.It was the outlet for passion, in the shape of physical aggression instead of her paints and canvas.The unarmed techniques she pounded the sack with sprung from her bone-marrow, soon making her perspiration soak into her garments. Her white hair tied behind her head, it whipped like a banner at every spinning motion she made - each kick, punch and elbow making the sack shudder with precision impacts. The sudden - unbidden - memory of her actions against the new XO spurred her, sending her into a flurry of consecutive combinations. Brought a ferocious mask of iron determination to her face. Made her cry out as she delivered her final volley. How could she have been so wrong? How could she have let herself go so far in pursuit of protecting the crew? How could she had let the chase from Terra make her so paranoid?Done is done... What we do in life always leave an echo.Afterwards, she leaned with her forearm against the swinging dead weight - panting with midnight eyes ablaze.OOC: This thread is meant for free-form role-playing on board the USS Theurgy without the support of the major plot-line. Here, you may at will start scenes as you wish as long as you keep things within the same time-frame, or at least as close to it as possible. You may not let whole days or weeks pass by on a whim, but otherwise than that, you are to enjoy yourselves to the best of your abilities.Also, as it is stated in the General Rules, you may start your own threads on the USS Theurgy board as well, as long as you title them according to this post. Example: INTERREGNUM EP 01-02: Title. Please see below points from the General Rules.[Show/Hide]III. Any crew member may start a new thread for individual scenes. These threads are fully private; no one else should post in them without being invited by the person who started the thread. Please make sure you specify which Episode the scene belongs to, though.IV. Crew members need not appear in a single thread at time, and are thus free to be in several parts of the ship at once. As to avoid confusion, crew members are to specify in OOC notes when scenes takes place in relation to others. Furthermore, it is encouraged that individual scenes (see above) are handled so that they correspond with ongoing missions in such a realistic manner as possible (for the sake of not disrupting the space-time continuum). Logic and common sense is the rule-of-thumb here.Please note that there are events remaining in the Epilogue that requires finishing before logically posting here, since you are as of yet unaware to the turnout for your characters. Post here thusly at your own risk for disrupting the space-time continuum and being force to rewrite stuff.
