What are your orders sir? Walters: I'm not getting any readings from the inside, so we don't know what's awaiting us. And I don't read Ruq's lifesigns any more. On the positive side, I've not gotten any increase in radiation when this thing opened. I have no indications who built it, though. It's definitively not from this planet, that I can say for sure. :: Turning to Jicheld:: Do you have anything? Jicheld: response :: They didn't have a great amount of time, and they had no idea what was inside...and they were here to find out, and save the Ergot if they could. Hannibal spoke:: Parker: We're going in. Stay close behind me. Let's go! Walters: Right behind you, sir. Jicheld: response oO Well, the plan had been sound. But that Egrot threw it all off... So, let's improvise. I hope the Major is good at thinking on his feet. He should be...Oo :: The screeching started again...the door was beginning to close. The three raced across the distance as the door began to close. Hannibal, being the faster of the three of them, reached the door first, then Walters, with Jicheld bringing up the rear. Seconds after the three were inside, the door closed, leaving them in almost complete darkness...they were trapped inside. Hannibal spoke:: Parker: Jicheld...scan for lifesigns. Ergot or anything else. Jicheld: response Walters: Nothing new to report here. I'll scan the makeup of the structure first. But I don't see an opening mechanism at the first glance... oO Great, no way out, only one way to go... Oo :: Hannibal said nothing for a few seconds, letting his eyes adjust to the dim light. They were standing in an entryway, and Hannibal could see there were two passageways which led deeper into the structure. The air smelled stale, like from a damaged life support system. Putting a hand on the nearest wall, he knew it was metal, and Walters was scanning it. Walters spoke:: Walters: It's duranium, sir. But something is off. It's not the kind the Federation uses. Some isotopes counts are not right... :: The fact that the wall was duranium meant at least they were dealing with a life form who knew how to work elements they were familiar with, but then there was the next question...which way to go:: Parker: Duranium means we have some commonality. Jicheld...scan for DNA on the deck...maybe we can find out which way Ruq went. Jicheld: response. ::A minute or two later, Hannibal had his answer:: Jicheld: response :: Okay, so now they had a direction, but there was no blood, so if the Ergot had died, they did not die here, but they did have a direction...down the nearest passageway:: Parker: Allright...let's head that way. Walters, are you picking up any power signatures? Walters: There definitively are power conduits in the walls, but they seem to be in a standby mode. Wait, I'm getting fluctuations. Regular ones. Like some kind of sleep/check rhythm. This thing is asleep, but a very light sleep. I'd assume there are some systems checking status regularly. :: Hannibal nodded:: Parker: Allright...let's go... ::The three headed down the darkened passageway, deeper into the abyss. They moved quietly, cautiously. Hannibal didn't like it for the simple reason they were heading deeper into whatever this thing was and he was poorly equipped to deal with a possible threat. However, the light from their once hidden tricorders was now lighting the way. Reaching an intersection there was writing on the bulkhead...familiar writing that he had seen before. It was scarred, but Hannibal knew what it was. He spoke:: Parker: I'll be damned... Walters: Sir? What it ist? ::The Major looked alarmed, something Walters found deeply unnerving...:: Jicheld/ response Parker: It's Zalkonian... ::Hannibal remembered the brief war between Embassy forces and the Zalkonians, who were brutally persecuting the members of their race who were undergoing "the change" into more evolved beings. They had commandeered a Zalkonian ship, giving it to Zalkonians who headed to a planet which had been located by then Ambassador Della Vetri for them to live in peace. There was no reason for this to be here, for that moon to be here. Something was wrong here, and if these Zalkonians were undergoing the change, something must have happened for them to be here:: Jicheld: response Parker: Very sure. Let's keep going. Both of you...keep your eyes peeled... Jicheld: response Walters: Aye, sir. Based on the current flow, I think the power source might be that way. ::He pointed down one of the corridors:: Jicheld/Parker: response?
