((Ship's Library, Deck 4-- USS Veritas))

Raissa rose from her seat and moved over to Lia.

Moonsong: ::smiles:: Commander?

Lia turned from the doctor and their console to find Raissa Moonsong, with=
=20
a smile, to her side. Slightly behind her was Tim Alentonis.

Rouiancet: Hello, Raissa. How can I help?

Moonsong: I am thinking that Alentonis and I go to the astrometrics lab. We=
=20
can use the system to create a holographic model as the data comes in.

Rouiancet: That sounds like an excellent plan to me.

Alentonis: We could use the imaging technology in astrometrics to create a=
=20
video feed and see what we're up against.

Alexander-Dalton: Response

Moonsong: It would certainly give us a more comprehensive view of the=20
planetoid. We can also tie it into the navigational sensors to aid in=20
tracking its course.

Rouiancet: Even better.

Moonsong: There are many theories=E2=80=A6 ::glances at Alentonis:: But the=
re is=20
nothing concrete yet.

Rouiancet: If there's one thing I'm sure about, it's that we'll know much=
=20
more as we approach.

Moonsong: Of course=E2=80=A6 we could all adjourn there if you are ready=E2=
=80=A6=20
::gestures around the library:: In all honesty, while this works for some=
=20
research=E2=80=A6 We believe the data from our own probes and sensors will =
give us=20
what we need.

Alexander-Dalton: Responses

Rouiancet: Good idea. Why don't you three go ahead, and I'll gather up the=
=20
lieutenants. We'll meet you there in a few minutes.

Alentonis: Okeydoke.

Moonsong: ::nods:: Yes, Commander

Alexander-Dalton: Response

Rouiancet: Good luck. See you shortly.

Alexander-Dalton: Responses

The trio made their way out of the library and off to the astrometrics lab,=
=20
and Lia made her way deeper into the library to retrieve the remaining=20
lieutenants in the group. Alentonis was following, kind of quietly at=20
first, since he didn't really have any conversation topics.

Moonsong: We have upgraded our lab while we were in spacedock.

Alentonis/Alexander-Dalton: Responses

Moonsong: We are quite proud of its capabilities.

Alentonis/Alexander-Dalton: Responses

(( OOC:Will continue as needed. ))

(( Astrometrics Lab, Deck 4 -- USS Veritas ))

Tim made his way over to the main display and began inputting information=
=20
they had from the massive Starfleet Science file. It didn't take lo=
ng=20
before the planetoid came into view. Raissa moved to the primary control=20
console. She immediately noted that Solak was at a corner console. He was=
=20
the quiet type and she had seen him startled people without meaning to. She=
=20
also noted that neither doctor had registared his presence.

Alentonis: So, the theory I came up with was that it has some sort of=20
intelligent life which was able to utilize a weird sort of computer to=20
cloak the planet, which requires intelligent life in order to operate the=
=20
system. I don't know if it was capable of generating warp capacity =
as well.=20
Commander Moonsong's theory is that it could be some kind of AI bas=
ed on a=20
prior experience she had in the Menthar Corridor.

Moonsong: I merely suggested it as one of many possibilities.

Alexander-Dalton: Response

Alentonis: Your guess is as good as mine.

Solak: ::With raised eyebrow:: An educated hypothesis based on known facts=
=20
is far more prudent.

Alentonis/Alexander-Dalton: Responses

Raissa didn't smirk at their startled reactions.

Solak: My apologies. It was not my intention to startle you. I am=20
monitoring the effects of the gravitational forces of the phenomena on=20
local space. I am also attempting to determine the origin of the rogue=20
planet.

The ship began to increasingly vibrate. Solak grabbed onto his console,=20
before tapping the screen a few times. It showed that the planet's=20
gravitational forces were affecting the Veritas' warp field. Raissa braced=
=20
herself as well as she looked up at the planetoid model.

Moonsong: I believe we have arrived at our target.

Alentonis/Alexander-Dalton: Responses

Suddenly, the vibrations stopped, before the room was bathed in red light=
=20
along with the light from the display. She would have to rely on Solak to=
=20
interpret what was going on.

=20

Moonsong: What is happening?

Alentonis/Alexander-Dalton: Responses

Solak: ::Raising eyebrow:: The planet seems to have, to use a crude=20
analogy, "disappeared".

Moonsong: Has it entered subspace again?

Alentonis/Alexander-Dalton: Responses

As the ship lurched, they all grabbed on to the top of the consoles. =20
Fortunately none of them hit the floor. Raissa was happy to pass on the=20
broken wrist routine.

Solak: I find it illogical that Starfleet does not implement safety=20
harnesses for elevated alert levels.

Moonsong: ::softly:: Or seatbelts...

Alentonis/Alexander-Dalton: Responses

Things seemed to settle down for the moment and Raissa relaxed her=20
deathgrip on her console.

Moonsong: ::letting out a breath:: It looks like they were able to get a=20
probe launched.

Alentonis/Alexander-Dalton/Solak: Response

Raissa received notification of the probe's launch. It wouldn=E2=80=
=99t be long=20
now. She glanced at the other team members. There were a lot of things that=
=20
was not in her field of expertise, but she knew whom was.

Moonsong: ::nodding:: The data is starting to come in now. ::she glanced=20
toward Solak:: Maybe you can focus on tracking it through whatever layer of=
=20
subspace it is dancing with?

Solak: Response

Moonsong: The rest of us can start mapping the surface and see what we can=
=20
see.

Alentonis/Alexander-Dalton: Response

Raissa stared at the image that hovered before them. A slight frown touched=
=20
her brow and she felt a sudden dryness in her throat. The planetoid, based=
=20
on its size, was like nothing she had ever seen before. Yet=E2=80=A6 there =
was=20
something familiar she couldn't quite put her finger on. It made he=
r uneasy.

She was only vaguely aware of the other three joining them in the lab.

Smith: Will we be able to get everything up on the screen?

Rouiancet/Alentonis/Alexander-Dalton/G'var: Responses

Raissa blinked when she realized she was being addressed. She gave Lia a=20
weak smile.

Moonsong: I am sorry. I was trying to remember something.

Rouiancet: Response

Moonsong: ::shakes her head:: It was something familiar, but I do not know=
=20
what. The new data is coming in, so we should begin to have some answers=20
for you, Commander.
