((Bridge, Deck 1 - USS Veritas))

Ariadust: If it is exiting their space, they may not have any more interest=
=20
in it. ::Ceciri offered without looking up from the panel.:: Although, if=
=20
it wasn't for the likely gravimetric shear of the planetary jump, I'd say a=
=20
planet like that would make a decent black market anchorage. Blue Heaven=20
manages, and it's just a fast-moving rogue planet. ::beat:: Although, I'd=
=20
avoid the Siren of Airi as a trader, so that's a point against it.

Kinan/Bridge: Response?

Orrey: So you have heard of something like this before?

Ariadust: Any trader has heard the stories, of how a planet or asteroid=20
just appears in a 'storm' of space around it and smashes some cargo convoy=
=20
or ship. It's something like the stories of the missing ships from Sol, or=
=20
Risa. There are usually always other reasons for each ship. But.. well..=20
::shrugs:: One of the commonalities many species share is superstition.

Rune half-listened while still focusing on the task at hand. To her, it=20
sounded like Ariadust was talking about some kind of folklore. Of course,=
=20
most folklore had some reality mixed in the make them almost believable.

Kinan/Bridge: Response?

Orrey: ::Standing and turning toward the rear of the bridge.:: Commander=20
Jolara please seee if you can get a message and reply from the Cardassians=
=20
about our friend.

Rune glanced up from the Mission Ops Table and gave a short nod of=20
acknowledgement.

Jolara: Aye, Captain.

With a swipe of her hand, she switched displays and brought up=20
communications. Once the message was sent, she went back to trying to plot=
=20
the planet's course. Moments later, she received a response=E2=80=
=A6 the=20
Cardassians began sending all the newest data they had gathered about the=
=20
planet and the computer relayed the information to the appropriate=20
departments.

Orrey: Commander Kelrod...go ahead and and move your security teams to=20
their yellow alert positions. Don't change the ship status just yet=
though.

Kelrod: Understood :: he sent a message to the different chief's on his=20
department to pass along the orders. The first to acknowledge was Dallas=20
followed by the rest. :: order sent and acknowledged.

Orrey: If we find trouble I don't want to risk anyone being out of =
place or=20
having to rush. ::drumming his fingers on the arm rest of the chair.::=20
Assuming there are not shifts in a random direction, how do you plot the=20
path of the planet as it passes through our space?

Her console beeped as if in response to his question. She took a moment to=
=20
read the data streaming before her before answering herself.

Jolara: Using the data given by the Cardassians on the course, speed and=20
times it has jumped through subspace and re-entered normal space while=20
traveling through their space, we've been able to make a =E2=80=9Cb=
est=E2=80=9D estimate of=20
where it will enter our space. ::with a swipe of her hand:: Sending the=20
coordinates to Helm now.

Dugoras: Response?

Orrey: Lieutenant go ahead and push us up to maximum warp, let Engineering=
=20
know as well. The third nacelle may give us problems so I want to see if we=
=20
can work on that while we are going.

Ariadust: Aye, sir. Increasing speed to maximum warp.

The comm system on beeped for their attention.

Ukinix: =3D/\=3D Ukinix to bridge. Masters informs me the Cardassians have=
=20
reported the planet has changed course and speed, what's our ETA o=
n=20
reaching the planet? =3D/\=3D

Rune's brow drew together in an annoyed frown.

Ariadust: =3D/\=3D I don't think it's a course change, sir. The readings lo=
ok=20
like a subspace sheer effect forming, which is distorting our readings.=20
That said, we're increasing speed slowly to Warp 13. ETA now one hour two=
=20
three minutes. =3D/\=3D

Ukinix: =3D/\=3D Understood, we'll do what we can to be ready. Uki=
nix out. =3D/\=3D

Kelrod: Sir, it might be useful to use our lateral sensors to perform a=20
continuous subspace emission scan to follow the trail of the planet if it=
=20
goes into it. It could help us determine through which layer of subspace=20
it's moving, or at least determine a range of subspace layers to look for.

Orrey: Do it, see what you can find and run it against the database see if=
=20
it hits on anything.

Kinan: Response

Kelrod: Once we approach to it, I suggest either a class 2 or a class 4=20
probe to be launched at the planet to began gathering data. At least until=
=20
we determine if there's anything intelligent on it.

Orrey: Use the class 4 the deflector shields should be helpful.

Jolara: Aye, Captain.

Kinan/Dugoras: Response

Rune promptly began helping them prepare the class 4 probe.

The ship began to shake and Rune leaned slightly forward against the table=
=20
to keep her balance.

Ariadust: Sir, we're experiencing increasing amounts of subspace=20
distortions. They appear to be increasing the faster we go. I think we're=
=20
in the wash of whatever is careening the planet through subspace.

Orrey: Fascinating.

Kinan / Dugoras: Response

Kelrod: As we're approaching to the planet's position, I can spare some of=
=20
the energy for the SIF.

Orrey: Do so but remember I want as much in the engines and the sensors as=
=20
we can. That way we can get the most information we can.

Jolara: The probe is ready once we get into position.

Kelrod: As I understand, the gravitational forces of the planet ripping=20
through subspace could originate an interference with our warp bubble, as=
=20
the planet itself could be drawing the negative energy from the bubble's=20
edge.

Orrey: It would make sense.

Ariadust: Response

Kelrod: So I guess that as we approach to it, the interference at high warp=
=20
will be greater....

Ariadust: Response

Orrey: An hour away and already getting effects from it. This could cause=
=20
some serious damage in the local patterns of traffic if we aren't c=
areful=20
how we handle this.

The ship continued on its path for a good bit of time when nearly as they=
=20
got used to the shaking, it suddenly stopped.=20

Orrey: Helm what is our ETA?

Ariadust: Response?

Orrey: Still that far out..then why has the sheer faded away?=20

Rune couldn't help but feel like something just wasn't righ=
t. Perhaps it=20
was simply a matter of her not understanding all the scientific aspects or=
=20
perhaps there was more than meets the eye.

Orrey: Can either of you see the planet on the sensors still?

Kinan / Kelrod: Response?

Orrey: If we can't see it then it has jumped into subspace...Helm, =
full=20
stop. Commander go to Red Alert.

Kelrod / Kinan: Response?

There was a moment of stillness, then through the main viewscreen a=20
distortion appeared that almost took the appearance of an eye opening=20
before the planet appeared hurtling toward the Veritas. Rune gripped the=20
edge of the table. Her jaw clenched as she braced her mind against the=20
sudden heart pounding tension that swept through the bridge as the planet=
=20
soared over the top of the ship, close enough to set off proximity alarms=
=20
all over the bridge, and likely other major parts of the ship.

Orrey: Turn us around and get after it! As soon as we get a line on it=20
launch those probes. ::Jansen straightened himself and reasserted his calm=
=20
control of himself.:: Commander Jolara, just in case the other main teams=
=20
are not aware of what just happened do let them know we have caught up to=
=20
our target.

Jolara: Aye.

She quickly did just that.

Ariadust / Kelrod / Kinan / Dugoras: Response?

Jolara: I find it extremely hard to believe what just happened was the=20
result of a natural phenomena.=20

((OOC: I'm sorry this doesn't really push it forward. I=E2=
=80=99m having a=20
difficult time staying focused on writing at the moment.))
