S02 Ep05: The Avian Flew the Cukoo's Nest (Main Story)
Timeline: Mission 5 Day 20
OOC Somers: Please continue this in Part 2 Thanks.
After speaking with both Walon and Aldana Jasmine returns to the bridge as the ship takes up orbit around Xindaria, walking into a hub of activity, she looks around and wonders what the hell is going on, she sees her First Officer on her feet speaking to the officer manning the sensors, she had heard whispers about losing connection with their away team, but due to the anomalies no one was sure, now they were in orbit of Xindaria a more in-depth scan could be done.
oO How do you explain to the Captain, and First Officer; that a shuttle and crew just disappeared, and all that is left is just background noise Oo thought Josefina...
Walking over to Sterling "report Commander, is it confirmed that our Away Team is missing? Also, do an in-depth scan for any metal traces used in Starfleet Padds or Commbadges, now we are in orbit our scanners should be more reliable" Somers said.
"Captain, We have lost contact with the away team and the shuttle. We were in contact with them when they vanished. We were scanning the area at the time and its as if time folded in on itself briefly. Chronoton particles stayed constant however there was a jump in graviton and inverse tachyon particles. We are currently attempting to analyse residue particles to find out where and when they went. So far the results are astounding. A temporal vibrational analysis indicates Tachyon particles from 200,000 years ago. We are pretty certain if they were swallowed in the fold that they went back some 200,000 years ago. The ruins on that planet are very old and clearly, there were many advanced species there. Captain as you know inverse tachyons travel backwards in time. If our calculations are correct I can tell you where in time and space they are. They are on this planet where it was relative 200,000 years ago. The problem is we have no way of knowing what triggered this event". Maia reported.
She looked at Maia puzzled oO Yeah! I did not understand much of what she just said Oo Somers said to herself "So if I understand what you are saying through all that techno stuff, the Away Team vanished 200,000 years into Xindaria's past due to the Chronotron and Temporal anomalies crashing together to form a... Subspace fold, interesting, if they are back there, then they will have Xindi Avian and other species to contend with, Lieutenant Dodd will find a way of getting us a message, keep on it Commander, find a way to get the team back, also assume that we can only get messages from the past" Somers said.
"Aye Captain, except it, is not subspace it's more of a sub-time or temporal fold. Keep in mind that's just the first theory I came up with, like space, time also has three dimensions, Initiation, Duration and Termination. We might not get any messages at all and if the away team is 200,000 years in the past then they will have to find a way to reverse what has been done". Maia stated.
With that Somers looked at Winchester "Lieutenant if you have not done so already launch the CAP advise them to steer clear of the anomalies, but I want to know if we have any uninvited guest coming into the area"
"Ma'am, I left instructions that when we arrive at the destination, fighters are to be launched," replied Paul as he swung his chair to face Somers, He continued, "there is a swap over every 3 hours to give our pilots a rest," as he knew that would be beneficial to them.
"Excellent" as she responded the CAP launched, she looked at the viewscreen "Lieutenant, I want you to scour the communications and data channels and get me as much information you can without being discovered, I want to know what the hell those Orions on the planet are doing and see if they mention anything about a disappearing Federation team" Somers responded.
" Aye ma'am," replied Paul as he tapped some commands into his console and began to scan the Orion communication channels to find out what had happened to their team. But what he got was that they also had lost a team.
"Ma'am, from what I'm picking up," he said as he looked back," Is that they have also lost personnel," but the question still remained why were they at this planet in the first place. were they looking at it for a new planet for use for their slaves? that was something he might also listen out for.
"What the Orion's lost people too! Damn, this complicates matters, they could have sent for more ships" Jasmine said "Yellow Alert" she said and the ship went up a level "Lieutenant have the rest of the Squadrons put on standby to launch at a moment’s notice" she said to Winchester, then looked at Macapuno "Lieutenant Macapuno bring the security up to date and put them on alert, just in case Orion's show up and board us, speak to Major Donovan I am sure she will help by adding the marine personnel with Security" Somers finished.
Sitting there at her station Josefina was still intently scanning the area Oo "CRAP, nothing on any of my frequencies, and I've got almost a few hundred of lightyears to go" Oo though Josefina as she suddenly broke out of her thoughts when she heard the order...."Yes, Ma'am" came Josefina's reply.
Quickly she depressed "send" which sent the current information to the XO, who needed to know of what was happening, and also to the QRA team along with the other sections. With the QRA team now in place and already suited up for combat, they would be the first to contact any illegal borders, and for Gunnery Sgt Elipsia Montez, the NCOIC of the QRA team and was always complaining about not having any action.. soon he and his team would be up to their eyeballs in dead or dying Orion’s if they decided to enter the ship. She wished them luck, Oo better for me to stay on the bridge, and do my part than get killed in some stupid boarding incident oO though Josefina who was always looking for ways to not get killed.
With the XO who was second in command and Captain Somers, now updated with the new information; they would make sure that the Marine Company on board the ship would now be ready. Plus, if she survived the next 72 hours, without being killed, she'd go see one of the hair stylists for that new short hairstyle that was now coming into vogue among female Marines... "Ma'am, the order has been sent" commented Josefina who was still watching her board...
"Already done Ma'am, the Klingons are ready and primed as are the rest of them," replied Paul looking at his board, He continued, " Permission to send a flight to gather intelligence?" he asked as he needed to know what the hell was going on so that he could plan his next few moves.
Looking at her intelligence Officer "Send one fighter with a recon package and orders that they are not to fight unless it is to save themselves, and Lieutenant have a pilot use the Venture Class scout we carry" Somers said.
"Sending instructions now Ma'am," replied Paul as he tapped in the commands to the flight deck, Just then he said, "Lieutenant Coro reports that she will handle the scout, but request and escort?"
"Make it happen Lieutenant" Somers said and looked at the view screen while Winchester carried out her instructions.
