((Conference Room One, Embassy, Duronis II))


Deena brought up the rear as the group made their way up the stairs to the=

conference room. Almost at the top, Teller leaned heavily against the side=

railing and took a moment to catch his breath. Deena, too, came to a halt -=

ready to jump in and request a beam-out back to the Medical Center if she=

had to.

Quen: We're almost there - you good?

Teller took a few moments to focus, then nodded to the crew and headed
inside. Deena pursed her lips, widened her eyes, and nodded. He certainly=

was determined - she had to give him that.

Wilkins: Any news on how the Executive Officer is recovering?

The entire room was filled with an air of focused concern - the majority of=

the senior staff now present, including a new Vulcan dressed in engineering=

gold, and the new addition to the science department. Deena couldn'=
t quite
remember her name... she was certain she'd heard it in passin=
g on the
shuttle. She shrugged and made a mental note to schedule both the Trill and=

Pandorn for follow-ups as soon as possible.

Teller: Very well, thank you Ensign Wilkins. I'm glad to see all of you=

back here and in one piece. Mr. Pandorn, if I didn't properly express my=

appreciation at the time, allow me to now - thanks for getting that shuttle=

off my arm.

Quen: oO Wilkins! That's her name... Oo

Pandorn: Response

Sirok: Response

Teller nodded towards the new officer and smiled.

Teller: Pleasure to meet you, Mr. Sirok. We can always use another good=

engineer - welcome.

Deena took a seat at the table as he continued to talk.

Teller: While we wait, maybe you can bring me up to speed. I reviewed the=

Thor's mission files when I was transferred here, so I know there was an
incursion into Romulan space recently, but I don't know the context. Can=

you take me through the highlights?

Recalling the messy and convoluted details of their last mission, Deena
exchanged a knowing look with Pandorn, Lovar, and Garcia.

Pandorn/Garcia: Response

Quen: A virus. I'll spare you the details, but our former Chief of =
Surgery
rather ...creatively described it as =E2=80=98the zombie virus'. Na=
sty piece of
work...

Lovar: Response

Alieth/Wilkins: Response

With everyone finally seated, Turner stood at the table, dressed in a
battle vest, and armed with a Type 2 phaser holstered at her hip. If this=

was a response to whoever shot them down, it was serious. If it wasn=E2=80=
=99t,
then whatever they were about to walk in to was That Much More Serious.

Turner: First of all I want to welcome Ensigns Alieth, Sirok, Wilkins, and=

2nd Lt. Greaves to the Senior Staff.. You couldn't have come at a better
time as far as our need for you, nor the worst time, considering we are at=

war with the Tel Shiar. And make no mistake firing on one of our shuttles=

causing it to crash and kidnapping one of us was indeed an act of war we
cannot, nor will not, ignore.

She waved her hand, and a chart of the Typhon Expanse came up above the
tabletop.

Turner: Additionally, Intelligence reported, a ship, most likely a Warbird,=

barely on the edge of their sensor range and deep inside Romulan territory=

had left its base like a bat out of hell a few minutes earlier. It was
pushing its engines so hard, it disrupted its cloaking device just enough=

to leave a small particle footprint behind. A few possible destinations
have been projected, including: ::pointing on the chart to blank space:: a=

previously uncharted system within the Typhon Expanse. Long-range sensor
readings of that system were distorted, but they showed the unmistakable
traces of a material that was close to the top of the Federations hazardous=

substances list. Proto-matter, and a lot of it. Enough, if used as a
weapon, could totally devastate any system in the Universe.

Deena swallowed hard, recalling a very, very near-miss she'd learne=
d about
at the Academy involving a protomatter bomb and the Bajoran sun.
Protomatter had few scientific uses, but near-endless potential for
destruction.

Turner: For this mission, we will need two teams. The Search Team to find=

and recover Lt. Cmdr. Addison MacKenzie and her captors, comprised of the=

following:

Lt. Cmdr. Teller, Major Parker, Lt. Col. Mitchell, 2nd Lt. Greaves and
other Marines designated by Major Parker.

Interception Team will accompany me on the USS Thunder - A, with Lt.
Commander Alex Brodie as Acting First Officer, Lt. Ben Garcia at helm, Lt.=

Commander Krindo Pandorn and Ensign Sirok as engineers, Lt. Quen Deena
(Acting CMO) and Ensign Alieth in Medical, Lt. Lorian Lovar and Ensign
Wilkins in Science.

My reason for taking the Thunder is tactical. Although a smaller ship, she=

is a battlecruiser and has the weaponry to back her up. And like the Thor=

she is equipped with Quantum Slip-Stream Warp Drive (QSD) We don't know
what we will need out there, but the Thunder will likely have more of it.

Any questions, comments or suggestions? If not, Interception Team can beam=

up to the Thunder and the Search Team can be on its way.

Deena nodded. Her job was clear: prepare for the worst, hope for the best.=

Protomatter weaponry left little trace of those who had the misfortune to=

be on the receiving end. That wouldn't be the worst. The worst woul=
d be a
firefight and a shipful of combat injuries... Best case scenario, you=
were
looking at maybe seeing a few cases of space-sickness from the subspace
anomalies in the Expanse. Deena crossed her middle and index fingers.

Quen: oO Come on - space-sickness... Oo



Mitchell: Ma'am, I have Lightning and Falcon squadrons currently he=
lping
the Bronwyn and Bondi on barrier patrol around the planet. Six Lancers and=

six updated Peregines. Their normally based space side on the Thunder. Do=

you want them along with you for this run?

Turner/Any: response

Mitchell: Yes ma'am.

Any: Response

When the conversation had died down a bit, Teller stood slowly and
addressed the room.



Teller: You folks heard the Admiral - Intercept Team, rally out front of=

the admin building in five minutes for transport to the Thunder. Ground
team, we'll be using the Ops center as a war room until further notice -
Major Parker, Lt. Col Mitchell & 2nd Lt. Greaves - meet me there and we'll=

start formulating a tactical plan. ::He offered them a tight, knowing
smile:: I realize this isn't how anybody expected today to go...but this is=

the life we chose. Good hunting to you all. Dismissed.

As the usual =E2=80=98briefing over' sounds started to fill the roo=
m, Deena turned
to Alieth.

Quen: Let's get Sickbay prepped and ready as soon as we arrive. The=
Thunder
can take a beating - and it has. Prophets only know what kind of situation=

we're flying into now.

Alieth: Response

Quen: ::nodding grimly:: Protomatter won't leave a trace. If anythi=
ng,
we're looking at a firefight with the Romulans. ::under her breath:=
: That
tends to be how these go....

Alieth: Response
