((Service Tunnel, Vel Maijan Subterra))

The airlock clearly hadn't been used in years. In fact, Ellen could=
n't=20
remember the last time anyone had come this way. All of their expansion=20
efforts had been directed in the opposite direction. That was, until one of=
=20
the old sensors set to monitor surface conditions picked up five bio-signs=
=20
near the entrance to the cave system.

With an unhealthy-sounding hiss, the atmosphere vented from the small=20
chamber - the walls reverberating with every clang from the locks. The=20
light dimmed; part adaptation to the outside environment, part electrical=
=20
overload. The outer door began to roll back into its housing, coming to a=
=20
grinding halt after only a few centimeters.

Rick jammed his shoulder into the opening, bracing his foot against the=20
corroded steel frame as he pushed. A few seconds of nothing, then the man=
=20
stumbled, caught off balance as momentum finally kicked in and carried the=
=20
hunk of metal back into the wall along its track. The door settled into=20
place with an echoing boom.

=20

Rick stepped through and tapped the comm above his right ear.

=20

Armiger: Ellen, are they still wandering along the old service tunnel?

What came through Ellen's earpiece was mostly static peppered with =
a few=20
intelligible words. She shook her head and turned the speaker off. She=20
could understand him better through the suits...

=20

Flynn: Yup - five contacts, 750 meters ahead. ::she slapped the side of the=
=20
scanner.:: oO That can't be right=E2=80=A6 Oo Plus two more...

=20

Rick shook his head, and slapped the side of the helmet again.

=20

Rick: We've got the phaser. That will have to do. Run!

=20

Flynn: Right behind you!

=20

It was several turns and ascending inclines to the service tunnel. Were it=
=20
not for the equipment still embedded in the rock near the surface, the=20
tunnel would have been sealed decades ago.=20

Flynn: oO Probably should be sealed off now=E2=80=A6 Oo

=20

The air hung thick with dust kicked up from the tunnel floor, scattering=20
the light from their hand beacons so they could not see more than a meter=
=20
or so behind. A sudden ping from the scanner caught Ellen's attenti=
on. She=20
stopped short, slowing to a walk.

=20

Flynn: Round the corner.

=20

Rick stopped and nodded. He drew a measured breath and edged around the=20
corner, phaser protruding cautiously. Along the opposite wall, Ellen stood=
=20
with a hand poised over the old-style projectile weapon on her hip. Her=20
eyes came to rest on a large=E2=80=A6 creature at the far end.

Flynn: oO What the-?! Oo

Ellen recoiled slightly, taken aback by its appearance. Covered in thick,=
=20
black scales - the Thing stood on its hind legs, dominating the cavern as=
=20
it chittered and chirped. She gave a nod to Rick. Her own weapon would do=
=20
nothing against it. A phaser hit just might=E2=80=A6=20

In the aftermath of the shot, Ellen thought she saw another one of the=20
creatures emerge from the shadows before one of the offshoots collapsed.=20
Dust kicked back up into the air, and when it settled, she could clearly=20
make out five humanoid figures - clad in EV suits far more advanced than=20
their own.

Flynn: oO Fancy=E2=80=A6 Vulcans must've finally learned to share..=
Oo

One of the humanoids - an actual human - stepped forward and addressed=20
them.=20

=20

Teller: =3D/\=3D I'm Lt. Cmdr. Geoffrey Teller from the Federation Starship=
=20
Thor. We're here in response to a distress call. Identify yourselves. =3D/\=
=3D

=20

Their phaser may be useless, but Rick kept it aimed at the newcomers and=20
gave a sharp side nod to Ellen. Ellen looked the new man up and down. There=
=20
was an advanced-looking phaser rifle hanging from his shoulder, a thin=20
sleek scanner on his hip. In all likelihood, she guessed, more technology=
=20
than the entire colony possessed. Yet, it was his words that captured her=
=20
attention.=20

=20

Flynn: =3D/\=3D Federation? =3D/\=3D

=20

Teller: =3D/\=3D That's correct, the United Federation Of Planets. Very=
=20
classy blue & white flag. Heard of it? =3D/\=3D

=20

She gestured to Rick to lower the phaser.

Flynn: =3D/\=3D Boy, are we glad to see you=E2=80=A6 =3D/\=3D

=20

Pandorn: =3D/\=3D I take it you were the ones who sent the distress call? =
=3D/\=3D

Flynn: =3D/\=3D In a manner of speaking. =3D/\=3D

Brell/Greaves/Lovar/Teller: =3D/\=3D responses =3D/\=3D

=20

Rick interrupted with a click of the switch positioned above his right ear.=
=20
With the environmental suit's external speaker turned on, Rick addr=
essed=20
the group.

=20

Armiger: =3D/\=3D Our suits have limited capacity. We're returning =
now. This=20
way if you would. =3D/\=3D

=20

Greaves: =3D/\=3D That's probably for the best. ::checking his su=
it:: I've=20
got less than ten minutes of air left at this rate, and I'm not doi=
ng so=20
hot gentlemen. =3D/\=3D

Flynn: =3D/\=3D Were you injured? =3D/\=3D

Brell/Greaves/Lovar/Pandorn/Teller: =3D/\=3D responses =3D/\=3D

=20

Flynn: =3D/\=3D You best come with us. Follow him: I'll bring up th=
e rear. =3D/\=3D

The group tailed Rick as they snaked their way back along the turns of the=
=20
old service tunnel, descending deeper into the recess of the newer colony=
=20
tunnels. Ellen's attention switched continuously from the scanner i=
n her=20
hand, to the group ahead, to the tunnel behind. They hadn't seen th=
e=20
creatures until they were practically on top of each other. The thought=20
was=E2=80=A6 alarming, to say the least.

=20

Brell/Greaves/Lovar/Teller: =3D/\=3D responses =3D/\=3D

=20

Pandorn: =3D/\=3D It was fortunate that you came upon us when you did. Glad=
you=20
did. =3D/\=3D

Greaves: =3D/\=3D ::through gritted teeth:: You can say that again sir. =
=3D/\=3D

Seeing one of the men reach for a wall, Ellen issued a word of warning.

Flynn: =3D/\=3D Watch your step - visibility's not great and the gr=
ound's=20
uneven. Don't touch the walls. =3D/\=3D

Brell/Greaves/Lovar/Teller: =3D/\=3D Response =3D/\=3D

Armiger: We were in a rush; it takes time for the dust to settle. Keep up.=
=20
The airlock is ahead.

=20

Pandorn: =3D/\=3D Right behind you. =3D/\=3D

=20

((Airlock Entrance - Vel Maijan Subterra))

The outer door closed, much to Ellen's surprise. As the oxygen=20
concentrators slowly went to work on the atmosphere in the tiny room, she=
=20
surveyed the new arrivals. Three humans, one Vulcan, and a large blue man=
=20
whose species she did not recognize. Whoever he was, he seemed to be the=20
voice of diplomacy=E2=80=A6 It would be an unusual role for an Andorian. Th=
en=20
again, she could see no antennae wriggling above his head...

=20

Ellen removed her helmet as soon as the inner door opened, blissfully=20
taking in a breath of air that didn't taste of fried circuitry. The=
=20
newcomers followed suit, albeit tentatively. They did not seem impressed by=
=20
the town.

=20

Pandorn: This place has seen better days....

Ellen shot a glare at the brown-haired man.

Flynn: I heard that.

Greaves: ::with strained wryness:: Not to sound needy, but I'm hop=
ing=20
y'all have a doctor?

=20

The human with short hair and blood on his face stumbled back toward the=20
airlock, to be caught by Ellen and the blue man. Ellen called forward to=20
Rick.

=20

Flynn: Rick - Doc!

Brell/Lovar/Teller/Armiger: Response

With Rick seeing to the injured man, Ellen addressed the red-haired one -=
=20
Lieutenant Something Something Teller. From the interactions she'd=
=20
observed, and the fact that he was the first to address them, she guessed=
=20
he was their leader.

Flynn: Now then, I guess I owe you some names. ::she aimed a thumb over her=
=20
shoulder at Rick:: He's Rick Armiger, he's our Chief Doctor=
. ::indicating=20
herself:: Ellen Flynn - and before you and the blue guy get all =E2=80=9Cta=
ke me to=20
your leader,=E2=80=9D you're talking to her.=20

Teller: Response

Flynn: Good. The message you heard was first sent by my grandfather. We=20
resent it a couple weeks ago.=20

Teller: Response

Flynn: Got the damn transmitter working for a start. And we started=20
encountering this=E2=80=A6 substance. Doc can tell you more. It burns flesh=
, tools,=20
practically eats everything in its path. It hides in the rock: can'=
t be=20
seen, can't be detected. ::she waved a hand toward Teller:: Althoug=
h, with=20

. Tech's=20
