EPISODE 02: The Mysterious God Incident [Beginning - Ante Meridiem] December 21, 2012, 11:42:25 AM [ EPISODE 02: The Mysterious God Incident | Beginning - Ante Meridiem ] [ Deck 01 | Captain's Ready Room | USS Theurgy ]"Captain's Log, Stardate 57505.15," said the female form of Jien Ives quietly as she nursed a cup of coffee, sipping it by the view screen in her Ready Room. She was 'dressed' in her uniform and held one hand folded behind her back, "The mission to Nimbus III was a success, and all departments have drawn benefit from the new supplies that the away team managed to gather from the planet surface. Engineering reports progress in the repairs that were, until now, impossible to complete. Sickbay's storages of medical supplies have been restocked and - with luck - the damaged Valkyrie in the Fighter Assault Bay can be repaired."Jien turned from the window and downed the last of her cup. She headed for her desk as she continued. "Weapon Systems are almost fully operational, and in a couple of days, we will attempt to test the docking hatches. Perchance we will be able to enter MVAM-mode once again. Something imperative for our survival... now that we are all alone. Tomorrow, a Senior Staff meeting will be held, and each Department will leave a full report on the progress made. Only then can we decide what immediate measures we dare take, and what our next destination might be... in order to spread the truth about Starfleet Command."After setting the cup down on her desk, Jien left her Ready Room and headed out."Captain on the bridge!""At ease, report," she said as she headed for her chair - her big brown eyes void of emotion as she gazed out the main view screen."ETA for the Federation border is 48 hrs," said the human helmsman, "current heading, Gamma-5-9. We have just reached the edge of the asteroid field. Current velocity, Warp 1." The lack of speed was a precaution so that their heavily augmented sensor-array might pick up signs of ship activity in their immediate vicinity in space. They were, after all, still in hiding. Regrouping for what seemed such a staggering challenge that would humble the most hard-headed Klingon.Jien seated herself in the Captain's chair. "Lay in a new course. Follow the edge of the asteroid field. We need another day before we decide where we might take our fight.""Aye, aye, Captain."[Dr. Nicander to Captain Ives,] came the call from the intercom."Yes, Doctor," said Jien and looked away from the view screen.[I have examined the stowaway as ordered, ma'am, and regardless how I examine the scans, I cannot isolate any kind of anomaly in his physique that would suggest he is one of the enemy. Given how little we know of the replicants, I cannot make a positive guarantee, yet nor do I find cause to disbelieve Mr. Bellde'side. If anything, his anatomy is is a state that suggests that he is the athletic celebrity that he appears to be.]"Thank you, would you please ask the security detail to bring him up to the Bridge next? I would like to have a word with him."[Yes, Captain.]The chirp from the intercom ended the brief exchange, and Captain Ives frowned, wondering what she might do with Mr. Scosche Bellde'side now that the suspicions of his sudden appearance on board had been lifted.OOC: Post above has been updated.I will post with my other characters too in due time. Either here, or is some new (or one of Taguiera's) threads.
