Mission #260: Spirally Barred, Part II

USS Maxwell, NCC-21873, is a Nova-class science and survey vessel based out of Pinastri Colony on the Second Life Grid. We are currently a mission of exploration in the Hapke Cluster, an open star cluster of some 10,000 star systems. We are open to new crew! Please inquire with Captain Nora Gerhadsen or with Commander April Coswell. We are particularly interested in Science, Engineering and Operations officers.

Roleplay Times: Thursdays 6pm to 8pm SLT
Commanding Officer: Nora Gerhadsen
Executive Officer: April Coswell

Moderators: Nora Gerhadsen, April Coswell, JayceRebel

Mission Name: Spirally Barred, Part II

Story Concept: Nora Gerhadsen

The following information is IN CHARACTER information.

Location: M-1765-791 System

Alert Status: green

Enroute to the Hapke Cluster, USS Maxwell has been redirected to the M-1765-791 system (the 791st charted system in the M1765 star cluster) in order to investigate a curious physical phenomenon and a missing scientist. Dr. Edmund Selden is a highly respected astrophysicist who traveled to the M1765-791 system in order to study a 'hot Jupiter' protoplanet falling into its parent star, an A-type blue giant main sequence star. There are some very old theories about a potential nova and nebula formation resulting from this kind of strike, and this is the first time that it will have been observed. Dr. Selden took a shuttle, apparently with his wife and family, to this system to make observations, but he went silent some time ago.

Upon entering the system, Maxwell found a dim light source on one of the proto-planet's moons. This turned out to be Dr. Selden's ship. He was originally unwilling to speak to us, but eventually allowed an Away Team to beam over. We are currently awaiting word from the team. Note that the protoplanet's mass is about five Jovian masses (five times the mass of Jupiter). When the planet strikes the star, it will behoove us to remove ourselves from the immediate vicinity of the star as fast as we can. With the planet, its moon, and therefore Selden's ship (and our Away Team) hurtling toward the parent star, there isn't a whole lot of time to sort out whatever is going on down there.

=============================================

In Service,
Commodore Nora Gerhadsen, USS Maxwell, Commanding


OOC Notes:

- This mission is based on a relatively new concept in exoplanet research! Hopefully people will have fun with it.

- Please remember to wear your new "MaxComm" commbadge. It looks just like the old one, works just like the old one, but should be free of the same issues that have been plaguing us recently. The name is different, though! It's in the notices.

- We're once again on our way to the Hapke Cluster. If you are good at building, please talk to me! I've got a job... Uh... Better make that Jobs... For you!

* These duties are very general ideas, feel free to add to them and fill things in.

--> We are a science and survey ship. That means we find weird stuff sometimes. Create! Let's see what we all can come up with!

* Please allow people to do their jobs and be thoughtful of the fact that people join departments and divisions to do their jobs. Try not to step on their functions. If you have something to help someone (advise that they may or may not follow) instead of saying something publically, it might be more useful to IM them and discuss it with them.

* Departments should be working together. There should be enough possibilities for everyone as long as they all work together and cooperatively. Do not be afraid to do OOC planning in IM.

* This is more or less freeform, but please don't have it as "Q did this". We need to get ourselves out of our own jams (not that this has ever been a problem with this crew).

Remember that the point of all this is to have fun! Good luck and have at!
