S03 Ep 01: Family Of Slaves (Main Story)
Timeline: Mission 1 S3 -Day 15.1b
- Medical -
Dr Cahill and her team treated the injured and did what was necessary. Once done she had a bad feeling. All medical personnel have hand phasers ready and phasers rifles close by to be ready to repel any borders. Also, take no captive. And defend the Tomcat at all costs. They defended all the injured and fight like there is no tomorrow.
Lamia looked at the phaser she’d been issued with, she had no problem with handling one she was a dab hand at handling one thanks to her father but she didn’t like to unless it was absolutely necessary. For now, all anyone could do was wait. Her thoughts moved to Kildare, she could still hardly believe that she’d met and fallen in love with him in such a short space of time. Right now she wished he was onboard the ship as well.
Tamara and Jorie were none too happy about being told to 'Take no prisoners.' It went against their oaths to do no harm and to treat any patient regardless of a friend or foe. It wasn't the policy of Starfleet to just kill. They exchanged glances and set their phasers on the highest possible stun setting instead it would have to do.
Samuel and Rhett had flatly refused to pick up the phasers and rifles. They were not the best shots and they were NOT going to risk hurting their own while trying to shoot any possible enemies.
- Engineering -
Dodd had been back on the ship and was working with his engineering crew to keep the systems up and working from all the overloads and damage from the attacks. He also had to coordinate with the fighter deck to keep the staff there to do repairs to the fighters that were coming in on a rotation. He was working with Taggert and the rest of his staff to keep all buzzing.
Dodd had Nelson and Pril coordinating with the Damage Control Teams to make sure the most severe cases were addressed first. Machado was working to reroute power to the essential systems and their backup systems along with coordinating rotating frequency updates for the ship's shields.
Dodd had stationed himself at the pool table and was also monitoring his staff to help keep them motivated and alert. He worked to keep them rotated in and out of duty to avoid having them getting over exhausted.
Working nearby, flanking the warp core, Taggert was monitoring power flow, making sure both weapons and shields were taking priority. Everything non-essential - holodecks, replicators, lights in empty rooms, whatever else - was off, and routed to weapons and shields. Regenerating the shields was getting difficult.
"Damn," she cursed aloud, as a conduit exploded, showering her right side with sparks. "Damage Control, deck 8, forward port. Phaser segment shorted out!"
She tapped a few more controls, taking in the whole picture at the top of her large display while focusing in on various areas below to see which parts would need the most attention the soonest. While the chief was working on DCT, she was kind of doing the same thing in a way, since in monitoring power flow, she found a number of plasma transfer conduits needing repair, and a number of other shorts needing fixing before their next scrape.
She was ignoring a sharp pain in her arm and face since her job was more important at the moment. "Teela, computer core segment 81 to 85. Looks like some overloads needing replacement."
"Taggert, I appreciate your drive, but you need medical assistance as you are painting the engineering deck red," Dodd stated to his assistant chief.
She looked, noticing the large cut in her sleeve, some blood dripping down to her hand. Wiping her face, she finally recognized the cut on her face.
"I'm fine, sir, I've got power fluctuations that need..."
"I am ordering you to sickbay, Nicci," Dodd stated in response. "I hate to take my rank and use it this way but you give me no choice. I need my assistant and so I must insist you get treated. I will have Nelson take over fixing the power fluctuations and so forth."
"Aye, sir," she said as she left, making way for the sickbay, hoping it'd be a short visit. She had a lot to do to pick up the pieces after the fight.
Taggert departed and Dodd quickly got someone to start picking up the pieces she had to leave behind. Machado was covering some of them while Nelson worked to keep the vital ship's system with power while rerouting all other power from sections that did not need the excess power in this trying time. Soon all holodecks and empty quarters were shut down. The major components of the ship were the focus. Dodd had damage control teams all over the ship to helping to limit access to areas where damage was excessive as well as helping to restrict access to areas where power has been directed from.
Dr Cahill heard the doors to Sick Bay open and Taggert come. Her arm was bleeding and the nurses were already setting up. "So how did my favourite engineer do this"as I walk up with a smile and take a look.
"It is not too bad, she looks the nurse who hands her the laser suture unit. If you hold still it will be fixed in a few minutes. She deadens the nerves with a local neuro block. And sets to works. Once she stops the bleeding by closing the blood vessels. She then closes the skin. She cleans off the dried blood and smile. There you go, Taggert, you can return to duty now after you change into a new top. The Replicator is over there to get a new one" Cahill said.
Taggert silently nodded and walked over to the replicator to do as instructed.
- Bridge -
Somers was on the bridge and had just signed off on some Padd when her Yeoman stepped onto the bridge, it was a rare thing for a Captain's Yeoman to be on the bridge in these modern times that often, but now Master Chief Petty Officer Lucy Armitage approached her.
Looking up at her "yes Lucy?" Somers asked
She leaned forward "you have a high priority call from Starfleet Captain," Armitage said.
Looking startled "thank you, Lucy," Somers said and stood up "you have the bridge Number One," she said tugging her jacket down.
"Aye Captain" Maia responded. Getting up from science 2 Maia took the centre seat.
- CRR -
Armitage followed Somers into the Ready Room then excused herself, sitting down behind her desk she activated the communications = /\= Hello Admiral, to what do I owe this honour?" she asked. =/\=
=/\= Hello Captain Somers, I have some good news for you, I am quite sure you are going to be surprised with this =/\= he begun and got only a stoic look from Somers.
*clears throat* =/\= Effective immediately you are to be promoted to Fleet Captain with all the rights and privileges that come with it, congratulations Captain Somers =/\= the Admiral said.
Her mouth silently opened and closed a few times in utter shock, she saw the Admiral with a satisfied smile that he managed to silence a Somers =/\= Thank you, Sir, I am shocked, but happy =/\= Somers responded.
The Admiral nodded and smiled and signed off, it was then Lucy entered and looked concerned at the ashen look on her Captain's face "what is it, Captain?" Lucy asked.
It was a time before Somers answered she just sat there silent "I have just been promoted Lucy to Fleet Captain, replicate an extra pip for me please" Jasmine said.
She heard some movement and looked up as Lucy approached holding the new pip, Jasmine picked it up and put it on her collar "thanks Lucy, better note this in the ship's records" she said.
Armitage nodded and left the room, standing up she again tugged on her tunic and braced herself and walked out of her Ready Room and onto the Bridge.
- Bridge -
"What is the status on that derelict ship Commander?" She asked.
She seems to be drifting Captain and tumbling 6 degrees off its Z axis. Maia reported
Nodding she sits back down "I just got me some surprising news Maia!" Somers began.
"Interesting news Captain what is it?" Maia asked.
*pointing to her newly applied 5th pip* "this, the Admiralty saw fit to promote me to Fleet Captain, my duties have not changed so basically things remain the same, but I am slowly moving up" Somers responded. "As for the ship, we need to get it to stop its spin, then get into the ship's computers and get the air circulation going, I will lead a tech team to oversee what data we can get before moving on" she added looking at Parker.
"Congratulations but if you ask me they should have made you a Commodore". Maia replied.
*shrugs* "I am in no hurry Maia" Somers simply responded then looked back at Parker.
"Captain, I can use the tractor beam to try to stabilize the ship to prepare for boarding," Cody said while continuing to run various scans of the Orion ship.
"Make it happen, Cody," she said then tapped her Commbadge =/\= Somers to Major and Lieutenant Donovan =/\= "this is going to get confusing quickly," she said so only the bridge staff could hear.
Parker's fingers moved quickly across his panel, he watched on the view screen as the beam locked onto the ship, with a few adjustments he was able to slow the spinning ship and then stabilize it. Once the ship became stationary, he released the tractor beam, "Completed Captain,' he reported.
Down in Marine Country S'arila was going over some files and jumped when her Commbadge came to life, she tapped it =/\= online Captain =/\= she responded.
- Marine Country -
In her office on the flight deck =/\= Serina here goes ahead=/\= she said.
Still with two-way communication to both Donovan's open =/\= report to my Ready room Major *pause* you too Lieutenant Donovan =/\=
=/\= On my way Captain, Serina out =/\= she said and headed for the Captain's ready room wondering what it was about. She was getting tired of having her shadow too. Hopefully, that would be lifted as well.
=/\= Acknowledged, Somers out =/\= she said and closed the link "you have the bridge Commander" Jasmine said as she stood and left the bridge quicker than Sterling could respond.
- Counsellor's office/Cargo Bay -
The counselling offices were empty there were stacks of PaDD's on Iria's desk, and of the desks assigned to Tamara, Jorie, Samuel, and Rhett, with them all helping in medical and the secondary Cargo bay, there was no one to currently deal with any mental issues.
Iria walked out of the bay, her left hand holding a PaDD, her right was held tightly to her side. Her face was calm though her eyes were wide. She walked to the nearest lift and once the doors parted she stepped inside.
- Ready Room/Outer Office -
With things on the move Somers entered her Ready Room and prepares things, Lucy is there "Lucy when Major and Lieutenant Donovan arrive to send them right in" she said.
"Yes, Captain," Lucy said with a nod and exited the room.
Outside the Ready Room...
Lucy had only just returned to her desk when a tall female hybrid with red eyes and a short female in comparison to the tall one arrived at her desk, she looked up and smiled "the Captain said to go straight in" Armitage said.
"Thank you Lucy" S'arila responded giving the younger woman an appraising look.
"Thank you Lucy", Serina said nodding in respect.
S'arila looked down at the smaller female "so you and I share the same name huh!? Pleased to meet you Lieutenant" S'arila said.
At this moment in time, she was wearing her special glasses that made her eye's look human, in reality, there were mini holographic lenses that were bio linked with her eye movement so they reacted in a natural way. This hid her normal eyes that were photosensitive to a degree and allowed her to see in the red and yellow spectrums with white being room temperature or dead the glasses allowed her to see as a normal human, but a colour blind one, she saw as dogs saw in black and white, now she was looking down at the pilot.
Serina looked up and nearly fainted. "Holy sh***, Um...Hi, Lt. Donovan. Yes, it would seem so Please excuse me but my god you are really tall!", Serina said softly.
"Yes, I get that a lot," S'arila said with a smile as she and the Pilot entered the Ready Room.
Somers was standing with the back to the two new arrivals looking out of the window at the drifting hulks of enemy ships standing with hands behind her back as they entered, she slowly turned around "please be seated ladies" she said and waited for the pair to sit down.
"Okay, there is a ship out there being kept at tractor length, which is sending out a false signal, hoping to make us think that there are captives on board, but deeper scans show this to be false, currently *finally sits down* we are keeping the ship stable with a tractor beam, as we cannot drop our shields, just in case that is what they want I need someone to pilot a shuttle and an experience marine officer to conduct the S&D" Somers said falling silent to allow questions.
For the moment S'arila remained silent and thoughtful and made an opening for the pilot should she need to ask questions.
"Ok, so you need me to get you there and back. Should not be too problematic as long as there are no surprises", Serina answered.
"Exactly, I want you to Pilot the shuttle and remain with it and be ready to evac the team" Somers responded.
"I am to take a small team in, wipe out the hostile and set the charges, yes?" S'arila said too eagerly.
Somers looked at her a little shocked, "You getting scary in your old age S'arila" Somers said with a wry smile
Looking abashed "sorry, What is it you want of me?" she asked.
"Part of what you said is correct, I want you to capture their leader and bring him back as for the rest of it give no quarter, when you have Downloaded the ship's database set charges and run like hell" Somers added.
S'arila just nodded once.
"You got it Captain, emergency evac if needed", Serina said. "Um ... Captain is there any way we can dispense with my babysitter?", she added quietly.
Somers remembered the Lieutenant was essentially under house arrest "Lieutenant your baby sitter as you say is only there for when you are off duty, you are currently being given a duty so your escorts will pick up again when you finished your shift. *sighs* Okay you two get your stuff sorted and get over to that ship, dismissed" Somers said and watched the two women stand and leave her Ready Room.
After ten minutes of catching up on some work, she returned to the bridge in time to see the shuttle heading to the disabled ship, as she sat down a large Orion Slaver ship dropped out of warp right on top of the unexpecting Tomcat crew, scanned the ship as the Alert sirens sounded.
"SHIELDS!!" Somers ordered, a moment later the new arrival warped out, "Yellow Alert, dammit you drop the shields to allow a shuttle to leave and this happens" she complained.
"Captain that ship transported twenty-four of the crew away when they scanned us, reports of those missing are still coming in" the Communications Officer responded. Somers was pacing back and forth as she waited for news to come in.
