trinsec: Communication log - Whereabouts of the USS Endeavour

<UFP>-[USS Deneva|-9231 135 34] Alex says, "Where is the USS Endeavor?"
<UFP>-[Salton|-9231 135 34] Nix says, "I believe here."
<UFP>-[Salton|-9231 135 34] Nix says, "I mean, at this Romulan starbase."
<UFP>-[USS Deneva|-9231 135 34] Alex says, ".... A .... Romulan starbase?"
<UFP>-[Salton|-9231 135 34] Nix says, "Well, the name does seem Romulan to me and it's infested with Romulan officers.. so yep."
<UFP>-[USS Deneva|-9231 135 34] Alex takes a deep breath. "What.. is the USS Endeavor doing at a Romulan starbase?"
<UFP>-[Salton|-9231 135 34] Nix says, "Trying to battle a disease. Emphasis on trying for now."
<UFP>-[USS Deneva|-9231 135 34] Alex takes another deep breath. "Why are we allowing the Romulans to infect the USS Endeavor with a disease?"
<UFP>-[Salton|-9231 135 34] Nix blinks a few times. "Whoa, that's a new viewpoint I hadn't seen yet."
<UFP>-[USS Deneva|-9231 135 34] Alex says, "Ok. Look. My husband is on that ship. I do not want my husband on that ship on that base."
<UFP>-[Salton|-9231 135 34] Nix says, "Well, um... send him a priority one message and um.. tell him?"
<UFP>-[USS Deneva|-9231 135 34] Alex says, "Please tell me that someone is going to help me before I'm forced to don my uniform, stage a coup, and go in guns blazing."
<UFP>-[Salton|-9231 135 34] Nix says, "I'm not one to relay marriage issues!"
<UFP>-[USS Deneva|-9231 135 34] Alex says, "I have. In my own subtle way. He's not doing well."
<UFP>-[USS Deneva|-9231 135 34] Alex says, "What is the nature of the disease?"
<UFP>-[Salton|-9231 135 34] Nix says, "The disease is telepathic in nature."
<UFP>-[Salton|-9231 135 34] Nix snickers, "If your husband got no brains he's perfectly safe, I tell you."
<UFP>-[USS Deneva|-9231 135 34] Alex, quite unamused, responds, "My husband does have brains. Thank you. Who can I contact for more information?"
<UFP>-[Salton|-9231 135 34] Nix says, "Well, so far my contact has been one mister Nighthawk. I guess you can bug him too. His contact frequency is 'AH'."
<UFP>-[USS Deneva|-9231 135 34] Alex says, "Nighthawk. Yeah. Thank you."
<UFP>-[Salton|-9231 135 34] Nix says, "Not a problem, is there anything else I can help with?"
<UFP>-[USS Deneva|-9231 135 34] Alex says, "Not likely, unless you're good at reinstating Starfleet Command officers."
<UFP>-[Salton|-9231 135 34] Nix says, "Oh, well, no, I'm not. So ok. Have a nice day!"

trinsec: How Itsu Nix came to join the Federation Science Council and get things rolling

Nix was wandering around Earth until someone came up to her and told her she could get a job. Seeing as she was indeed in search of a job she got interested. All she needed to do was sign in an application form of the 'Federation Science Council' and be on her way to Starbase 241. It's as simple as that.

So, without time to waste she simply signed up for the FedSci and hitched a trip towards Starbase 241. Once there, she sent a message to the director, one Perrim. She hung around the arrival area of that particular base, but she didn't have to wait too long. Someone came along and coincidentically it was the director she'd like to talk with.

Perrim was, just like Nix, a Trill. They chatted for a bit, and he suggested she should get contact with Alexander Nighthawk, a security officer. Nix was interested in security and semi-freelance stuff like 'gathering information'. Just a job that has generally a lot of freedom.

So, Perrim had informed Alexander about Nix, and not very much later he was ordering her to go to his security office a few decks up. After wandering around Starbase 241 briefly, she got the hang of the layout a bit and managed to grab a turbolift to up there. In the office, she met Alexander and they had a 'formal' introduction.

Alexander had interesting things to tell to her. There was Salton, a ship of unknown origin which was 'sentient'. Salton was being ruled by a little droid who had a mind of its own. Nix was looking forward to be meeting Salton sometime soon. From the stories that Alexander told her, she got the impression that Salton was just like her little brothers. Nix also asked if she could get issued a weapon, keeping in mind her profession, or at least her profession-to-be. Alexander told her that she'd need to request that to one Kau'i Ome. So, she'll have to do that eventually.

That night, or at least according to the base's time schedule 'night', she went to her quarters. When she woke up the next morning, she was somewhere else. Yeepers? Nah, nothing as drastic as that, she'd been beamed on board of the Salton, and the story what happened there you can read in the two-parter post before this one.

trinsec: Meeting Salton the Sentient Ship and having a li'l adventure together - Part 2

<BQ>-[GCSB Aehallhahi'aedt|-9231 135 34] Thontal says, "Hailing Starfleet and all vessels on this base. Please send a list of people that will be accessing this base for services so that they may be given clearence"
<UFP>-[Salton|-9231 135 34] Nix says, "Oy, can I be in that list? I wanted to take a peek around but alarms went a'blaring."

[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Nighthawk to Nix
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: Nix here. Yes?
Nix fumbles with her communicator.
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Requesting a status report of the Salton.
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: He's alive and its virtual helmet thingy is giving me a headache currently.
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: I see. No security breaches, correct?
Salton says, "I am ok...when can I start helping?"
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: Not as far as I know of. Not here, at least. I tried to get some fresh air on the Romulan base earlier but the alarm went off.
Nix grins slightly at Salton's words.
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: Salton wonders when he can start helping.
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Soon. Doctor Natasha Petrovich has been infected.
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: Sounds bad. What does such an infection look like? Splotches all around or..? Hey, just curious here.
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: *Background noise: 'It is I. Ms. Ome, based on what Nurse LaRosa said, the virus is not purely a biological one. According to her description, it is telepathic in nature.'* Oh...wait. That was Vesquin.
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Ms. Nix, direct Salton to begin preparation of his sickbay facilities. If it is true that this disease is telepathic in nature, well...it makes things more difficult.
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: I will relay the message to him.
You say, "He, Salton?"
Nix fumbles with her helmet a bit, "Prepare the sickbay facilities. You might get a sick visitor soon."
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Thank you, Ms. Nix. In addition, I have submitted a list of guests to the Romulans. You should, hopefully, have access to base facilities soon.
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: That's grand. When can we expect you guys here?
Salton says, "The Containment cells are ready"
You say, "Goody, there is this one doctor petrified who's infected. Apparently the disease is telepathic in nature."
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: As soon as we can get Doctor Petrovich. Her status is unknown. Ms. Ome is currently questioning Vesquin. Hopefully, we will have our personnel back by today.
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: Understood. Containment cells are ready.
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Thank you, Ms. Nix. I will keep you posted. I just...need to find where Ms. Ome ran off to.
Nix alrighties, "They sure are chaotic. They hope they can get the personnel back by today."
Nix tips her helmet up a bit, crosses her eyes for a bit and then glances at Salton, "You're a talking ship. I know other ships can't really 'talk', but have you ever tried communicating with them?" She has a pondering look on her face.
Salton says, "usually their crew answers"
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: *Background noise: 'Emotional instability seems to be the main symptom of the virus. Ms. Petrovich was experiencing either hallucinations or memories that were unpleasant. She attempted to strike Mr.Monkey, however I placed her under sedation. When Ms. LaRosa awoke, she complained that it was attempting to take over her mind, and although she said the pain was gone, she still behaved abnormally, however that may have been a result of the trauma. There have been tests done, yes. Ms. Petrovich reported abnormal brain activity. Further, I have observed that everyone infected seemed to exhibit some sort of dermatological irritation. (an itch!). Mr. Giovanni is thus far the only one that has not exhibited any symptoms, however his emotional state is that of panic at the moment.'* Please make sure that Salton gets the gist of that, Ms. Nix. It might help determine better what sort of quarantine conditions should be established.
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: ... Acknowledged.
Nix just blinks.
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Thank you. Nighthawk out.
Salton is probing your thoughts
You say, "Um.." She ponders, "Salton. The disease is taking advantage of um, emotional unstable people." She ponders again, "What the hell was that mumbojumbo about."
Nix glances at Salton, "D'you reckon it's important?"
Salton says, "hmmmm?"
Salton says, "what"
Nix scratches her chin, looking a bit confused. "That Nighthawk guy had a lot to tell me, mostly scientific mumbojumbo. He told me to tell it to you because you could find out what kind of quarantine conditions would be best suited for that."
Salton is testing his telepath stuff
Salton says, "Ask them if they feel the virus is air borne"
Nix is thinking of 100 things at once, not the least of which is memories about maiming her little brothers.
Nix looks up, "Oh, good idea. Hold on."
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: Nighthawk? Is that virus air borne?
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Negative.
Nix shakes her head, "Not air borne."
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Latest hypothesis is that is is telepathically transmitted.
Nix repeats exactly, "Latest hypothesis is that it is telepathically transmitted."
Nix grins, "I actually understood that one."
Salton says, "I will put up a telepathic forcefield around the area. I will need to put one up to protect myself."
You say, "Mmm, you're capable of doing telepathy then?"
Salton says, "Only if someone is interfacing with me. That is how the helmets work"
Nix oohs as she peers at the helmet, or at least the edge of it, on her head. "Is that why I get headaches? Or is it that psycheledelic view I get sometimes?"
Salton says, "I am told they take some time to get used to"
Nix nods slightly, "Hopefully not too long, might need a trip to sickbay myself otherwise." She lowers the helmet enough so she can view through it again, "I wonder, can I see into other ships? That'd be neat."
Nix taps a quite a few times at the sides of her helmet.
Salton says, "No. Just what you can visually see via windows. Plus you get the HUD of system displays"
Nix nods, her helmet bobbing along with her head, "I've figured out that HUD part a bit. I'm trying to read one of the readings on that one ship there."
You say, "That .. .. Lemme see the name. See. Eff. Vee." She pauses briefly. "What designation is the CFV?"
Salton says, "My interfacing with the Federation databanks tells me that is a Cardassian fighter."
Salton says, "Hideki class"
Nix ahs, "Cardie? Interesting, no wonder the design looks so different." She mms, "Is it that ship that the spoonheads sent after that diplomat blabbed on subspace?"
Salton says, "I would assume so. it landed after we did"
Nix nods slightly, more carefully as to not to bob the helmet too much this time, "Cool then. I wonder if they're going to 'inspect' us."
Salton says, "They have"
You say, "They already did?"
Salton says, "there was one snooping around my Hatch and they scanned me"
Nix hmms, "Let me know if they're pulling that stunt again, Salton!" She peers into the direction of the CFV Zadik, "I'm supposed to make sure you're not being messed with."
You say, "Could you identify who was trying to snoop?"
Salton says, "They were just looking"
You say, "Well, yes, but if they haven't had an appointment, it's just rude, y'know."
You say, "The Cardassian vessel is still active. Funny."

[WARNING]--[Scan from CFV Zadik (4) detected]

You say, "Hey!"
You say, "Salton, do one active scan back!"
Salton says, "What would you like to know of their ship?"
You say, "Um... pff... I guess um... weapon status?"
Salton says, "2 Mark II Compression Beam"
Salton says, "15second Recharge"
Nix hmms. If she could stare blankly with the helmet on, she'd have done so. "Oh. Mm, damage capacity?"
[CFV Zadik]--[Incoming S2S: You will not scan this ship]
[CFV Zadik]--[S2S bearing 0.000 0.000]
Nix hehs, "The nerve."
Nix messes with her helmet, "Lemme send a message back."
You say, "I'm authorized to do this, Salton? It's your.. comm systems after all."
Salton says, "Sure!"
[Virtual Mission Console 1 is now in Communications mode.]
[Nix]--[S2S sent to cfv zadik: Oh, merely sightseeing, yours has a lovely design. But, if you stop staring at us, we will too! Deal?]
Nix grins, "But I will still stare with this helmet on. Heh heh."
[CFV Zadik]--[Incoming S2S: We did no such thing. End comms now.]
[CFV Zadik]--[S2S bearing 0.000 0.000]
Nix mutters, "It's only that I get headaches with this thing."
Nix teehees, "They're being funky, Salton. Could you confirm for me that they did indeed scan us just earlier?"
Salton says, "They did"
You say, "Thought so. I guess I'll have to report it to my authorities." She pauses briefly. "As soon as I find out who they exactly are."
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: Hey Nighthawk? Still alive or not insane?
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Yes, Ms. Nix? I am quite alive and perfectly sane.
Salton says, "tell him to prove it!"
Salton says, "we have no proof!"
Nix was about to answer when Salton talks. "Proof, what? The insanity?"
Salton says, "that he is sane"
Nix hehehs, "Same diff, but ok."
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: Well, we'd need proof first. Are you sane? I think we can believe the alive part, so don't worry about that.
Nix stifles a chuckle.
Salton aparently does not see what is funny
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: ....Excuse me?
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: I'm afraid that's not profing sanity, sir. I mean, for all we know you're insane and claiming to be sane, y'know..
Nix scratches her chin lightly, "They're shrewd, Salton. If he's insane and claims to be insane, the disease or whatever this is is more dangerous than we'd thought."
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: *serious tone* Ms. Nix, I do not have time for games. I am eating lunch, and my food is getting cold. What do you need?
If the Droid could nod, he would
Nix hrms. "Well, shall we just assume he's sane? Just for sanity's sake?"
Salton says, "Ok...but be watchful!"
You say, "We have the advantage of being in.. you. If he's heading there, ranting and raving and such, we can make a run for it."
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: Goody. Salton reported that the Cardassians attempted scanning him and someone was snooping around his hatch. Recently, I've witnessed the CFV Zadik scanning us. When confronted, they denied doing such a thing.

Nix glances at the HUD display again when staring in the direction of the Cardassian vessel. "They're disactivated now. Mm, didn't notice that but that means they're at least mostly harmless. For now."
Salton says, "they deactivates 13 minutes 46.89 seconds ago"
You say, "Ah thank you. I hadn't seen them deactivate."
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: This is most troubling information, Ms. Nix. Do you have a log of the sensor scans?
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: Well, I have one here, I believe. Otherwise Salton will be able to give you a few possibly.
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: As well as the communications log.
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Record them all, Ms. Nix.
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Does Salton not have any security mechanisms?
You say, "Salton? Security mechanisms?"
Salton says, "I know what happens in every room of my ship at anytime. That is how I knew they snooped."
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: Well, he knows what happens in every room. So he knows they've snooped.
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Post two of the guards that I brought with me from Starbase 241 at Salton's entrance, Ms. Nix. Do you have security footage of the intruder?
Salton injects the image into your head, Diwar looking into the hatch
Nix blinks slightly.
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: I guess I have footage. That is, if Salton can put it on some recordable device besides my head. But I think I could identify the Cardassian otherwise.
Nix mutters, "Guards? Where the hell, they're probably in their bunks."
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Good. If any Cardassians try to enter the ship again, turn them away. If they persist, stun them.
Salton says, "Currently they are drinking Romulan Ale in bunk two"
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: Well, ... That means I will get issues a gun?
You say, "Oy, and what is their current inebrity status?"
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: ...You don't have a phaser, yet?
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: Negative. That other person hadn't contacted me.. besides, I forgot whom I had to ask again.
Salton says, "One is passed out and the other one is looking at the other's cards"
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Ok. And I assume Salton does not have any similar weapons aboard him? If that is a problem, the guards I brought should be armed.
Nix oys.. If she could roll her eyes upward with that thing on (and without getting nauseous), she'd have done so. "Lovely people."
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: What.. and this is hypothetically speaking.. what if the guards are both too drunk?
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Excuse me?
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: How in God's name would they have gotten drunk?
Nix mutters slightly. "You know the answer to that one, Salton?"
Salton says, "no. They were off the ship for only a short period of time."
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: Beats me.
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Send them to sickbay. Promptly. And inform them that I will be having a chat with them when I return to the Salton.
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Furthermore, you and Salton go down to the airlock. Guard it. Just turn them away if anyone approaches. If you have to use force...well...smack them over the head.
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: Eh, yes, understood. *Background: Salton, your chance to show how hard your skin is.*
Salton says, "I have moved them"
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Thank you. Keep me posted. Nighthawk out.
Nix takes off her helmet, temporarily looking cross-eyed. "That's fast, beaming around inside of yourself eh?"
ix stands up, trying to get oriented again now that she's not ... having a vision extending out of the ship's hull anymore.
Salton says, "its a mere thought. that is why we were created."
You unman Virtual Mission Console 1.
Nix oh boys, "Whoa, trippin'. Mere thought? Mrm, you'll need to explain that to me sometime. Is the hatch currently safe?"
Salton says, "yes. only a few Romulan gaurds"
You say, "Alright, should be interesting." She makes sure her hand is at least touching something, whether it be an armchair or a wall. "Let's go, then."
Salton deactivates all systems.
Salton says, "follow me"
You begin following Salton.
Salton has left.
You follow Salton.



Hangar [GCSB Aehallhahi'aedt]

        The Hangar onboard GCSB Aehallhahi'aedt host it's main landing facilities. The landing bay consists of many landing pads, each divided by bright yellow lines. At the entrance to the Hangar, a large display board hangs from the ceiling, displaying the status and location of each landed vessel.
Contents:                                                               Obvious Exits:
"Salton"                                                                Pad 1 (1) - [chR Viduus'yhopae]

                                                                        Fore  (F) - [Ochei (Corridor)]



You stop following anyone.
Nix steps out of the Salton hatch. She looks up, expecting something.
Giellun is standing in the Hangar of the starbase, examining the two Rihhansu craft which are landed. Ensuring they are being inspected and any adjustments made which need to be.
Nix seems semi-surprised, apparently what she expected didn't come/happen. She looks down again, this time to around her.
Salton zips back and fourth, on patrol of his airlock?
Nix glances at Salton with amusement. She decides to go venture a slight bit further from the ship, just looking around the large hangar.
Giellun looks towards the two new arrivals, specificly the droid. He shakes his head slightly before returning his attention to the maintenance crews.
Giellun
        This male figure is rather lean, without any excess body fat on him. The way his clothes hang off of his body indicate that he does have some muscle mass, but not a great deal of bulky muscles. His face is oval shaped, and has very smooth skin free of worry lines. His black eyes don't seem to settle in one place, they are constantly surveying the area, looking for new things. His black hair is neatly trimmed, with the peaks of two pointy ears protruding from his head.

        He is wearing a lose fitting grey robe, with black hems. The grey material has many small patters on it, but nothing that is clearly visible from a distance. Around his waist is a black belt which matches the shining black boots which can be seen under the hem of his robe when he moves.
Carrying:
PADD
Rihannsu Plasmablade (9422)
Romulan Disruptor Rifle (1772)
Romulan Disruptor Pistol (23390)
Communicator (11193)
Giellun looked at me!
Nix notices the Romulan, a fully armed one at that. She just smiles and takes in a large breath, feigning a 'taking a large breath of fresh air'.
Thontal steps through the door leading from the Ochei (Corridor).
Thontal has arrived.
Thontal
Rhiannsu male, in underware like grey attire. his form is thin, but muscular. he still has a little body fat, but not discustingly so.
Carrying:
Rihannsu Assault Armor (23893 -- worn)
Rihannsu Plasmablade (18880)
Romulan Disruptor Pistol (2820)
Communicator (7604)
RSE-UFP Treaty Object
Salton tries very hard not to go zipping up to the romulans
Nix puts her hands in her pockets and glances at Salton.
Giellun straightens and turns about, facing the newly arrived Romulan. He begins to walk towards the man, cupping his hands together infront of him.
Nix saunters closer towards Salton, now and then glancing around, especially to the pair of Romulans of which one of them cups his hands.
As Giellun approaches the Romulan he bows his head in respect before motioning to the two Rihhansu vessels and speking to him in Romulan.
Thontal chuckles and nods to Ulk.
Nix whispers to Salton, "Must be an important dude or something. Look how one of them act."
With a look over his shoulder the Romulan who addressed the newcommer touches his right hand to his plasmablade before exiting via the fore blast doors. His pace is regular and measured, a true military man.
Giellun approaches the Ochei (Corridor) door and steps through when it opens.
Giellun has left.
Nix hmms, "Salt, I think we better go inside. Bit busy here."
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Ms. Nix? I will be returning to the Salton shortly.
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: Oh, right. The ship's safe as far as we can see.
[P2P->Nix] Alexander: Of course. However, Ms. Ome has ordered me to return to the Salton. So, I will be joining you all shortly.
[P2P->Alexander] Nix: We copy you. We're currently awaiting in front of the hatch.
Alexander has arrived.
Nix is standing near the hatch, close to Salton.
Alexander disembarks from the Salton, his features neutral as he surveys his surroundings. He catches sight of the Trill and the droid, and the weakest of frowns touch his lips. "All is well, I assume, Ms. Nix?" He asks of the Trill seriously. He looks to Salton and nods in greeting, "Salton."
Nix nods slightly, "Ayep, things seem to have gone well. And, as you can see, Salton here is pretty much undamaged."
"Good." Alexander replies simply, and he takes a step back into the hatch. "How have preparations for the quarantine gone?"
Nix glances at Salton when answering, "I think so.. Yeah, he said he's done his stuff for that."
Alexander nods slowly and he remarks, "It spreads telepathically. The entire quarantine section must be fully sealed off. I am not sure how people will be able to go near the patients." He sighs and raises a hand to his forehead and rubs it, "It troubles me deeply, this blasted disease."
Nix looks at Alexander a bit worried and examines his forehead-rubbing carefully. "I can imagine. Salton said he's put up an anti-telepathy stuff around him so he wouldn't get infected."
"Anti-telepathy stuff?" Alexander inquires, and he arches a brow as he looks to Salton, and then the Trill. "Explain." He asks.
Nix shrugs, "Nothing much, really. Something that blocks telepathic stuff from getting to him, so in this case the virus."
"Can he replicate this...stuff...for use with humanoids? Or is it restricted solely for himself?" Alexander asks, a bit intrigued. "It would certainly help with examination of patients."
Nix ums, "As far as I understood, the containment cells in the sickbay have those forcefields ready as well.
"Acknowledged. Thank you, Ms. Nix." Alexander quietly says, and he steps back toward the hatchway. "If you will both excuse me, I am going to replicate myself another meal. My lunch got cold on the Endeavour, and I am still starving." A thought comes to mind, and he glares, "Synthehol. For the duration of this mission, only synthehol." He looks to Salton, "Make sure the replicators are restricted to that."
Nix's face shows a slight grin at the last words.
Nix suddenly speaks up, "Oh, mister Nighthawk?"
Alexander stops just as he is about to turn around to retreat into the hatchway. "What is it, Ms. Nix?" He asks, turning to face the Trill.
You say, "May we go in again? I think it's reasonably safe and there's this Romulan people outside. I don't think that Cardie is crazy enough to try it a second time."
Alexander considers the request, and he sighs softly. He nods, and gives a wave of his hand, "Of course, Ms. Nix. Just have Salton sound an alarm if he detects anyone onboard again. Now if you will excuse me, I must eat." He turns away from the Trill and walks up the watchway and into the Salton.
Alexander has left.
Nix glances to Salton. "Salton, dude, you know the orders. Let us go inside."

<<OOC>> Nix goes inside. Will stay in hatch. Presuming you followed me, I'm about to fall asleep. ;)

trinsec: Meeting Salton the Sentient Ship and having a li'l adventure together - Part 1

--[Subspace Transmission]----------------------------------------------------

                              Sender: Alexander                             
                           Location: USS Endeavour                          
            Date sent: 65905.58873298 (Tue Sep 14 02:16:33 2004)            

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ms. Nix,

The Salton is currently aboard a Romulan starbase while resting from its trip to the Heimdall Array. I am currently aboard the USS Endeavour, also docked aboard the same starbase. We are investigating an infection that has spread through the Heimdall Array. The situation thus far is as follows:

1. One of our own doctors, Dr. Natasha Petrovich, has been infected by the disease and is under quarantine aboard the Endeavour. Ms. Ome and I are aboard the Endeavour to try to retrieve her.

2. The Salton is secured on the Romulan starbase. However, I noticed the Romulans took an interest in the vessel. It would be wise to keep a sharp look out. Before we left Starbase 241, I had an added contingent of four men go with us to Heimdall, and they should be aboard the Salton. With the Salton's own droid network, that should be enough to keep its interior secure.

Sincerely,

Alexander Nighthawk

Nix saunters in, obviously looking like someone who's sightseeing.
Salton zips up to Nix and begins scanning her, "hihihi"
Nix turns around to face whoever came to her. She examines whatever is there.

Salton
A small droid type bot that tends to hover around looking for things to fix.

Nix raises an eyebrow. "Eh. Hi?" and does a step back.
Salton says, "you are another trill!"
Nix blinks, "Gee, took you a long time..." She grins a bit, "You are a... wait a minit, are you that Salty guy of that sentient ship?"
Salton says, "Well..you are on the ship, and I am a droid. so yes! Ohhh! you have no holes! you are joined yes?"
Nix chuckles uncomfortably, "Uhhh, yeah joined. Right." She tries to put attention to something else, "Gee, neat. So I'm standing in this famous ship sooner than I thought." She glances around then peers back to the droid, "Clean, that's for sure."
Salton says, "its part of my design. some want to put color into me."
Nix grins, "Like, pink?" She points to one of the color bands on her jacket, one of a pink color. "Like this pink, for example." She glances around a bit, "Pink and yellow do justice to white. What'd you think?"
Salton says, "I do not care, just hope white doesn't get mad."
Nix chuckles, "Fun. They weren't kidding about you having a mind of your own. So you're that thing from ... ... um, some large amount years ago in the past?"
Salton says, "Yes. I aparently came a long way"
Nix mmmmMmms. "Neat." She leans her head closer to the droid, partly to examine him a bit better, "Say, did you see a big bang or something?"
Nix grins and quickly adds, "Big Bang, in the past. Start of the galaxy."
Salton says, "No. I was exploring the area 200 years aparently, before it started"
Nix whoas and straightens up a bit, "Now /that/ is what I would call /ANCIENT/." She smiles, "Sooo... How long have you been around here? I recently joined this .. .." She pauses, "What was that called again.. Federation Science... C-something." She mutters, "FedSci, that's easier. Ayep, what about you?"
Salton says, "I was recently asked to join. so I guess I am new too!"
Nix nods slightly, "Grand. So.. apparently I got beamed here or something while I was asleep. Imagine my surprise when the computer.. or rather you in this case responded differently to some of my commands when I woke up." She points to the viewscreen (if there is one?), "So, where we at currently? A Romulan Starbase?"
Salton says, "yes. Alexander beamed you over cause you were to come with us. I hiope you liked your quarters?"
Nix ahhs, "Ah, he arranged it? That's grand. Yeah, slept well, I had noticed nothing of my transfer of location." She nods appreciatively. "Have you met one of those Romulans yet? I haven't."

<AQ>-[Empok Nor|-9211 -124 10] Rajol says, "Indeed Communications officer, do relay that information for me, we will be arriving shortly. Empok Nor out."

Nix heads to the exit, muttering "Lessee what a Rommie base looks like."

Nix whistles innocently.
Salton immitates your sounds
Nix halts and stops her whistling. "Oh, forgot about you." She thumbs towards the exit, "I don't think it was a wise idea to try to take a 'fresh air' outside this ship. They've got loud alarm systems."
Salton says, "Ohh..noises?"
Nix nods, "Loud ones at that. Not very nice either. I quickly went inside before batallions of Romulan soldiers could rush in."
Nix glances around, "I only wanted to know a bit more where we are. Can I use those..." She glances at what is the best alternative of a console in this room. "Whatever you do to 'look outside'?"
Salton says, "The VR consoles are available for those without a jack hookup"
Nix glances at the VR consoles, "Right. So.. um.. so how do those things work?" She walks over there.
Salton says, "Put on the helmet and activate it"
You man Virtual Mission Console 1.
Nix nods slightly as she grabs the helmet. "Neat.." and puts it on. "How'd I turn them on?" she asks while touching around the thing on her head.

Salton says, "It filters out noise that normal eyes can't see. it alows you to see clearer images"
Nix glances around a bit more, "Lessee, what more is possible.. oh yeah, space border determination thingy." She pauses a bit, looking around more. "Heimdall space. Whatever Heimdall exactly is."
Nix nods, the helmet bobbing along with her, "Neat effects at that. The Orions and Romulans got different smaller pockets of space spread around?"
Salton nods, "it would appear so
Nix whoas. "Didn't know about that. But then, in the simulators I only learned to fly around, not to identify and examine spaceborders." She grins, "Looks messy to me to tell the truth."
