((USS Narendra - Stellar Cartography)) ::Nijil, the grumpy old doctor that he was, had been set out to do some research on a barely noteworthy planet. The only thing noteworthy was the fact that some rather distasteful characters had decided to use the planet as part of their stomping grounds for a nasty drug. But wait :: Nijil: Ensign, tell me what you make ::he directed her attention to one of the stats.:: of this? R=C3=B3s: I don't get it. ::The Rekarian was not known for his overly helpfulness. In fact i= t was easier to say he liked watching people struggle in an attempt to teach or show them something. Because nothing in this universe was easy. He was the living epitome of such a statement. He offered her, instead, a long look followed up by another glance back down at the computer. A =E2=80=98wanna try that again' kind of look= . He jumped to a conclusion but wanted to see if the science minded woman reached the same one.:: R=C3=B3s: The methane. Methane is a byproduct of herbivorous respiration. T= his could actually be very important, how did I miss this? oO Heh Oo ::Slight detection of annoyance in her voice made him mentally make a noise that resembled a short chuckle. While the rest of him remained stoic.:: Nijil: Not humanoid ::he prodded.:: R=C3=B3s: Well that's true. Most humanoids don't exhale much methan= e, but livestock does. ::Ah good. Different minds reached the same conclusion.:: Nijil: There's been no findings of such things being native to the = planet. R=C3=B3s: Exactly! If someone was keeping a population of animals, perhaps Targs, that would explain the methane. ::He gave his next thought a moment's pause. If there was a secret hidden base on the planet - or beneath - it would have to be artificially controlled.:: Nijil: It's questionable as to why it was detected. If there=E2=80= =99s a base and they are keeping livestock, wouldn't they instead recycling that ai= r? R=C3=B3s: True, we are expecting some form of atmosphere control, but even = so, the unwanted byproducts would probably be vented into the atmosphere. This is a good find, Doctor. ::Oh bubbly. yuck. Go back to being snark and annoyed. That was a = little more pleasant to deal with. Now she was treading on a milder version of Killoy. Though he supposed most of the people he worked with had a much nicer disposition than he. If not for his advanced skills his medical carrier might have been over before it started. That bedside manner was next to atrocious - except towards kids. He was never harsh towards kids.:: Nijil: We May be able to use this as another way into the base. R=C3=B3s: ? ::With both their brain juices flowing, ideas and plans and thoughts seemed to come up at regular, steady intervals. He nodded in agreeance.:: Nijil: There's enough places neighboring that location that could b= e used as cover for the base. But that's a good starting point for our sca= ns. Contact Commander Killoy and Maxwell with this finding. R=C3=B3s: ? Nijil: . ::he gave her a deadpan gaze.:: I am going to reach out t= o the science team to see what they have on protecting us from the Death Fog. R=C3=B3s: ? Nijil: I suspect our stealth will be used for infiltration and that will put us right in the line of fire. R=C3=B3s: ? ::He nodded.:: Nijil: I will also catch up with our marines - ::Unless she insisted. Then he wouldn't protest in the least.:: R=C3=B3s: ? -- ~~ *Lieutenant Commander NijilCMOStarbase 118 OpsA239202RH0~~* "I may not be the brightest pickle in the bunch... But at least I'm not the dillest either." - Me...
