*((USS Thor, Main Engineering))*

*Sirok*: One question, Captain. Has Commander Teller's team taken pattern=
=20
enhancers? If not, I think it would be a good idea to send them some before=
=20
they go any further.=20

*Kells*: I don't believe so, but I can certainly see the utility.=20
Lieutenant?=20

*Garcia*: There's a lot of unknowns. Having them down there might s=
ave us=20
some heartache later on. (Ben shook his head a half turn.) Recommend we=20
post a guard. We don't want to leave tech unattended with so many u=
nknowns.=20
If it gets into the wrong hands. (Ben paused a beat.) Throw in the temporal=
=20
element and =E2=80=A6 (Ben shrugged.)=20

*Kells*: That's fair, though between the two teams, they have Pandorn, Dar,=
=20
Parker, and Greaves down there. Unless you think the enhancers should serve=
=20
as a kind of base camp?

He glanced from Garcia to Sirok, wondering what the chief would think about=
=20
that.

*Sirok*: Weapons are useful against certain dangers but not against all. It=
=20
is logical that they can count on some support. We can keep them locked on=
=20
the sensors until they are in the possession of Teller's team, to avoid the=
=20
dangers mentioned by Lieutenant Garcia.

*Garcia*: Understood. Monitoring the pattern enhances by sensor, that=E2=80=
=99s=20
something we can wrangle.=20

*Kells*: Fine. Let's go ahead and do it.

*Sirok*: Yes sir.

The Vulcan sent one of his personnel to take the transport enhancers to=20
transporter 2 and from there they were transported to the designated safe=
=20
area.

*Garcia*: Captain. Chief. We've got a development.=20

Sirok looked closely at the sensor data, trying to figure out what Garcia=
=20
meant or to find it as soon as he mentioned it.

*Garcia*: Rapid clustering of ion charges. About seven miles west of the=20
Vel Maijan. Heading in an easterly direction.=20

*Kells*: Cause? (beat, to both) Or speculation?

The chief engineer looked at the sensor data. Trying to give the Captain a=
=20
clear answer.

*Sirok: *It is too early to tell, but I believe it is not caused by=20
atmospheric distortions. :: He would like to give him a more concrete=20
answer, but they had to do a geological study to know if it could be for=20
geological reasons interacting with the atmosphere. Or the fact that it=20
would be more interesting, for unnatural reasons.

*Garcia*: Responses

*Kells: *Let's get those pattern enhancers down, at least.

*Sirok: *They should be arriving at the transporter room shortly.

*Garcia*: Responses

At that moment, Garcia's communicator chirped.

*Brodie*: =3D/\=3D Brodie to Garcia. =3D/\=3D=20

*Garcia*: =3D/\=3D Response =3D/\=3D=20

*Brodie*: =3D/\=3D Ben, it seems were having some trouble with comms to=20
Commander Teller's team. I wonder if it's something in the =
tunnel system =E2=80=93=20
any thoughts? =3D/\=3D=20

*Garcia*: =3D/\=3D Response =3D/\=3D=20

Now Aron tapped into the call.

*Kells: *=3D/\=3D Commander, Mr. Garcia and I are coming up to the bridge.=
=20
Chief Sirok has things under control down here, and I want to handle this=
=20
before it gets out of hand. =3D/\=3D

*Brodie/Alieth: *=3D/\=3D Responses =3D/\=3D

As the other officers spoke, Sirok looked again at the screen with the last=
=20
known situation of Teller's team. Reviewing the data from the tunnels=20
they'd been through.

*Garcia*: (=3D/\=3D) Responses (=3D/\=3D)

*Kells: *=3D/\=3D We'll be up shortly. Comm us if anything develops in the =
next=20
few minutes. =3D/\=3D

*Brodie/Alieth: *=3D/\=3D Responses =3D/\=3D

As they spoke he continued to review the data and although incomplete they=
=20
left less doubt as fewer variables interacted than on the surface.

*Sirok: *=3D/\=3D It is too early to say for sure, but only the density of =
the=20
surrounding material and the depth at which they are should not be enough=
=20
to cut off the communication. =3D/\=3D

*Garcia*: (=3D/\=3D) Responses (=3D/\=3D)

Aron tapped his part of the conversation closed, and then turned to speak=
=20
directly to Sirok.

*Kells: *Let me know if you need anything at all, Chief.=20

*Sirok: *On the contrary, Captain, I am here to serve.:: He raised an=20
eyebrow and stood in thought. :: We can try to send a repeater as far as=20
the transporter goes. I will try to have something more concrete by the=20
time you get to the bridge.

Kells and Garcia went to the bridge and the Vulcan tried to move quickly=20
and went to the one who had in fact become his right-hand man in=20
engineering.

Sirok: Mister Zheg, we need a repeater for the communicators on mister=20
Teller's team.:: He showed him the sensor data :: As you can see they are=
=20
at a great depth, although it should not be enough to stop the signal if=20
they go a little further.

The tellarite looked at him in surprise.

*Zheg*: You don't call me chief anymore? ::He asked Sirok as if he were=20
offended.

*Sirok*: Most senior officers have decided to use my position to name me,=
=20
not my rank. It will be to avoid the fear that can come from letting an=20
inexperienced officer be the chief engineer. In this case, the word chief=
=20
can support a certain seniority. In any case, I think it would be=20
convenient to avoid confusion.

Zheg laughed loudly.

*Zheg*: Well, "mister" it is. As for mister Teller's problem, we can take a=
=20
communications beacon and set it to relay on the frequency used by the away=
=20
team and the Thor, it should give them a few more yards.

Sirok nodded.

*Sirok*: Very well, but we need to be able to lock it down quickly so we=20
can return it to the Thor. And that the controls are coded for Commander=20
Teller. :: The concern about pattern enhancers extended to other equipment=
=20
that could be transported there.

As they were getting ready, the Captain and Garcia arrived on the bridge.

*Sirok*: =3D/\=3DSirok to Captain Kells. Sir, we are setting up an emergenc=
y=20
beacon as a repeater. We will transport it to the same position as the=20
pattern enhancers and it will be coded so only Commander Teller can change=
=20
its configuration.=3D/\=3D

Response: Kells or anyone in the bridge

Tags! and TBC!
