S02 Ep05: The Avian Flew the Cukoo's Nest (Main Story)
Location: USS Tomcat/Various
Timeline: Mission 5 Day 22
- Counselling office -
Iria returned to the office and looked around it was quite really quiet the quote board had bright teal text across it. "Family is more than blood(lines)." She nodded that was true she knew that from personal experience her adopted father treated her as his own from the very start. Some families didn't bond through blood connection they bonded through living together, caring about each other and wanting what was best for their happiness. Why was it so quiet though? She had left jazz playing now she only heard the ambient noises of the ship. She shook her head and checked the other offices, empty. No PaDD's stacked on the desks, no people talking, she had sent Tamara and Rhett to help in Sickbay, but where were Jorie and Samuel? She shook her head and asked the computer to resume her random jazz music and started making notes for what needed doing once the away team was clean bill of health from the doctor.
- Science Lab 2 -
Technician 1st class Janet Lorenco was measuring the influx of tachyons and anti tachyons and their corresponding field densities to graviton particles in the local area of space, when she noted a slow but measurable increase in the build-up of anti-tachyon's. She checked it three times to make sure. Then she informed Commander Sterling.
Maia smiled at her and check the readings. Good work Janet.
Seeming to find a solution Maia tapped her Commbadge to make a connection to the bridge =/\= Sterling to Bridge. =/\=
Back on the bridge Somers was deep in thought when her Commbadge going off made her jump in her seat so tapping her Commbadge =/\= Bridge here, what is it, Commander? =/\= Somers asked.
=/\=We are reading a build-up of Anti-Tachyon's in the local area. Something may be coming through from the past. =/\=
=/\= Keep an eye on it, Commander, if its the away team, then render all the assistance you can to help them get back to this time=/\= Somers said.
=/\= Aye Captain =/\=
Maia made sure the sensors were at full power and that they were piercing the interference.
Maia monitored a steady build-up of anti Tachyons and gravitons until it spiked, the entire ship began to vibrate. then it was over, Maia scanned the torus and she read multiple Human, Several Gorn and a Xindi bio-sign.
=/\= Captain I am reading life signs near the torus Human, Gorn, and Xindi =/\=
She looked up startled and tapped her Commbadge =/\=are there any IFFs to say if they are our wayward team Commander? =/\= Somers asked.
=/\= Not reading any COMM badges at all Captain, although there is a lot of interference. If it is our wayward away team there are certainly enough, and in the right mixture of life forms. =/\= Maia replied.
- Flight Deck - Space -
First Lieutenant Joseph Tabor had been alerted that his flight would be next to go out, so here he was in his Valkyrie fighter along with three other pilots warmed up their craft and watched as elements of the 100th Squadron landed, the moment they were secure his ships were lowered into the launch tubes, as they were going down the internal Comms came to life.
=/\= So Skipper, what can we expect out there? =/\= Rebel 2 asked.
=/\= A lot of Tachyon and Chronotron anomalies, remember to avoid such things at all costs, we are the CAP for this round and it is our job to increase the chance that we can send an advanced warning to the ship should some hostiles suddenly appear =/\= as Tabor finished his alert light lit up and then he and three others were launched and after forming up they began a CAP of the nearby area.
- Bridge -
After finishing speaking to Lieutenant Dodd she looked at where Winchester was "Lieutenant Winchester, you are with me, I want you to take a troops to shuttle down with a Med tech and collect the injured and I will take the Runabout to collect our away team" she ordered standing in the middle of the bridge and tapped her Commbadge.
"Erm Ma'am, you forgetting I'm not allowed to fly," as he knew the shuttle might be ok, but still grounded was grounded in his book, as he knew that time was of the essence.
=/\= Captain Somers to Commander Sterling, need you on the bridge to cover while I take a shuttle down to collect our away team =/\= Somers said.
=/\= On my way Captain =/\=
Maia turned and ordered everything to be recorded and scanned. Even as she was leaving for the bridge.
After the Commander has closed the link she tapped her Commbadge to make another Link =/\= Somers to Aldana, assign a Med tech to accompany Lieutenant Winchester on one of our troop shuttles and prepare the quarantine measures, set the initial quarantine Triage in the main shuttle bay =/\= Somers said.
Tapping hir Commbadge =/\= Understood Captain, Aldana out =/\= hir said and closed the link.
With that done she connected to Iria =/\= Somers to Walon prepare your files Lieutenant, as soon as Doctor Aldana clears them from quarantine I am going to need you to set up sessions as soon as possible =/\= Somers instructed.
=/\= Aye Captain, we'll be ready! Thank you for the heads up! Walon out =/\= Iria retorted confidently in her team, and her research. She was also a tiny bit giddy with happiness knowing the away team was on the way back to the ship. She hoped that Remy was with them. Whatever his condition at least know he was alive would be good to know.
With the channel closed, she looked to her side and Winchester was there "I know a troop shuttle is not a fighter Lieutenant, but it is smaller than the Tomcat," she said with a smile.
" I know ma'am, but you did ground me," replied Paul as he knew this was not the time to debate it, He continued, "But I will try," as he hoped that his reaction times might be quicker or slower with his Prosthesis.
She looked at him "I did not ground you, Lieutenant, if I had grounded you I would have posted you to our Starbase, as it is at the moment you are cleared to fly my ship and shuttles," Somers said as they arrived at the main shuttle bay.
Maia made her way to the bridge and as she arrived on the bridge she saw the Captain and Lieutenant Winchester standing in the middle of the bridge and she asked: "Any new developments, Captain?" Maia said taking her seat.
oO It'd been hours and days, or was it days and hours Oo thought Josephina as she continued to work her station, looking for any signs of the shuttlecraft and the missing crew. When suddenly her tactical panel lit up like a Christmas tree. Quickly switching to find the source she suddenly said out loud..."GOTCHA"... which suddenly got everyone's attention. With everyone's attention now staring at the young 2nd Lt, she began to work her panel like a madwoman.....
"We have the shuttle," reported Josephina as she began to boost the shuttles weak EM field.
=/\= *static* on to Tomcat, is anyone static ere? =/\=
=/\= Repeat Thompson to Tomcat is anyone up there =/\=
Walking over to the Communications terminal =/\= Tomcat to Thompson, transport is en-route, keep it together down there =/\= Jasmine said inwardly sighing, she could not blame the team.
=/\= We are fine Captain! All present and accounted for, Sir =/\= Thompson replied.
Looking up at Maia as she entered the bridge "The Away team has returned and is requesting pickup, myself and Winchester here are going down to pick them up, it will be nice to fly a shuttle," she said.
"Looks like our lost sheep are home, Captain. It's probably better that we don't use the transporters, at least until the radiation clears." Maia asked.
*nodding* "Agreed, that is why myself and Lieutenant Winchester are taking some shuttles down there," Jasmine said returning to the middle of the bridge.
"Aye Captain" Sterling replied.
