They just aren't always the right idea at the right time. Spears/Ren/Davis/Horne: Response Blair: So let's hear some other theories. What's going on d= own there, and what can we do for our people? Young: ::Deep sigh:: Okay, what's your thoughts Ensign? ::To Davis:: Davis: Well, sir My guess is that this is phenomenon was made and = not naturally occurring. There are too many processes at play to create something like this to just assume that it is naturally occurring. Plus if= any feature were slightly different - as Lieutenant Young pointed out - it= could be wildly unstable or dangerous. Also, given that the amount of energy at play and it did not do any apparent damage to the shuttles suggests more than mere chance. In my opinion, the place I would start is= figuring out who made this. Search for evidence. Young: ::Nodding:: I'm inclined to agree with you there. There has to be some clues that we can trace from our end. Nothing like this could possibly= be created cleanly, I mean there must be evidence out there that we can use, we just gotta find it. ::He clenched his fist in frustration.:: Spears/Ren/Horne: Response Blair: These are all good theories, but there's just one thing. We = can't prove any of them. With all of this interference, we can't be certa= in, and I'm not going to authorize ANY action until we can be certain. Spears/Ren/Horne: Response Davis: Understood, sir. Blair: So what we need right now is ideas on how to get through the interference ::pause:: and remember what I said a few minutes ago, all ideas are good ideas. Young: ::Thinking out loud.:: If I can somehow reestablish contact with the= probe... Maybe that would give us some options? Davis: I have an idea, sir. Given that we are =E2=80=9Chearing=E2=80=9D mus= ic that is probably unwittingly being transmitted by a malfunctioning device, but did= not intercept any other kinds of communication, suggests that there is a limited bandwidth of frequencies that can permeate the anomaly. The music= is coming in at 44.1 kHz. :: Davis tapped at his console. :: At that time= in Earth history, the only broadcasts in that range are maritime mobile communications. We aren't hearing any of that as a coherent message= , but I can filter out other noise in the signal created by the bits and pieces that are inevitably in there. That might clear some things up? It also suggests the other side of the anomaly is not particularly close to a large= body of water. Young: That's the kind of data we need. Man, it really looks like the time= rift theory gaining ground here. ::Raven looked over to Ren, suddenly felling terrible.:: Spears/Ren/Horne/Blair/Davis: Response ::Certain that a solution would not be immediately apparent, Raven got to= his feet and awkwardly shuffled over to Ensign Ren. His green eyes were kept low, his embarrassment wholly apparent.:: Young: ::Lowering his voice so the rest of the bridge crew couldn't hear.= Uhh, Counselor? Ren: Response Young: So I... ::His shoulders dropped sadly.:: Look Counselor, I'd like to= apologize to you. Ren: Response Young: I shouldn't have been so... ::How could he word this? Rude? Abrupt?= Like his father?:: I'm not usually as horrible as you just saw. Honestly,= I'm probably due an appointment with you when all of this is over. Ren: Response Young: I am sorry. It was nothing personal. I guess I've had quite a hard= time sorting out my Dad's mental health care recently, I may have neglected= my own. Are we cool? Ren: Response Young: No, I'm fine I promise. ::He grinned:: It's just been a tough few weeks. I will check in with you once we get a chance though.
