((Main Engineering)) Tarva: We won't have the full higher warp speeds of course, but it should be enough for us to limp to harbor. Kiliak: Let's just hope the Prophets keep one eye on us if the Bridge does decide to take us to warp. ::At that, the open panel above them sparked again, then with a *FVOOM*, burst into flame. Kiliak rushed for the nearest extinguisher.:: oO Putting out fires. That's what we do down here. Sometimes it's more literal than others. Oo ::The flame was tamed with relative ease. Kiliak pulled a switch cutting electric to the faulty panel so it wouldn't start up again. It would have to wait until later for repair.:: Tarva: Okay, the program is incorporating with nav and variable geo now. The helm should be reading it anytime now. Kiliak: =/\= Helmsman, be advised. This is an experimental warp program simply to get us out of here. As far we know, it's untested on *Atlantis*. Do not exceed warp 3.7. Expect increased turbulence, and monitor your hull integrity closely. Accelerate and declerate in increments, no more than one every ten seconds. =/\= ::Her badge chirped an affirmative and Kiliak had to hope it was Maeli and not Darkkdust at the helm presently. It wasn't going to be the smoothest sailing.:: Kiliak: Tarva, this is your assigned post. Do not assist the others with repairs. I want you focused on the warp core, and at the first sign of portside nacelle stress or core overheating, be ready to abort. ::It could have been considered cruel to assign Tarva to this task, considering her past, and the current risks. However, Kiliak believed it was that experience that made Tarva best suited to handle the job with the levity it required.:: Tarva: Understood. Sotak: =/\= Response =/\= ::When a Vulcan said something like that, one could take it at face value. :: Kiliak: =/\= I'll be right there. =/\= (( Astrometrics )) ::Kiliak didn't have much time to waste with the state of the ship. Still, she knew Sotak must know that, and would therefore only logically call her if she had something worth her attention given the circumstances. Still, she got right to the point as she entered and saw the Vulcan and the Bajoran Udro Nepra studying a star chart.:: Kiliak: Yes? Udro: Response Kiliak: Let's take a look then. ::The signal they had picked up was incredibly faint, already a couple light-years away. It was a shield pulse. Kiliak got to work trying to clean up the reading.:: Sotak: ::Naturally, with all the chaos surrounding the asteroid, Kiliak had also forgotten about the long range shield pulse detection software running in the background. But it wasn't a Chon station signal they had accidentally picked up, but rather...:: Kiliak: The Consortium? A ship way out here? But it doesn't quite match the asteroid readings. Size seems way off, for one. Sotak/Udro: Responses Kiliak: Like I had to say earlier, coincidence makes me suspicious. ::Her mind wandered for a second, she was still woozy:: A nibble on the line... Sotak: ::Kiliak shook her head, shaking it off.:: Kiliak: Remind me to take you fishing next time we're on an M-class planet, Sotak. Sotak/Udro: Responses Kiliak: A shield pulse like that could be caused by a lot of things. Asteroid strike, solar flares, gamma waves, the Cloud, obviously, or even... internal sabotage. A power overload in Main Engineering, for example. Sotak/Udro: Responses Kiliak: =/\= Kiliak to the bridge. We've picked up an interesting signal here in Astrometrics. I'm forwarding you the data and coordinates now. =/\= Sotak/Udro: Responses Tags: Sotak / Udro ------------------------------------ Ensign Kiliak Jo Engineering USS Atlantis A239509KJ0 ------------------------------------ -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "UFOP: StarBase 118: USS Atlantis" group.
