Mission #202: What's This Button Do?

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: Captain Nora Gerhadsen
Executive Officer: Commander April Coswell

Moderators: Nora Gerhadsen, April Coswell, JayceRebel

Mission Name: What's This Button Do?

Story Concept: April Coswell and Jayce Rebel

The following information is IN CHARACTER information.

Location: The Loganno Nebula

Alert Status: yellow

Following the events of the past week involving the Mirror Universe, the USS Maxwell is preparing to leave the Loganno nebula and get under way for the Ullipallilli system, in order to restock before our journey back to the Hapke cluster. Ship's helm is slightly sluggish from the pounding we took, and power relays are somewhat compromised, but we believe that this is something we can fix en route.

Commodore Nora Gerhadsen is currently on her way to Pinastri onboard the USS Horizon, having been requested as a mediator in a delicate peace negotiation between the Kavari and the Hooz'l. I have therefore assumed temporary command of the USS Maxwell. We expect to rendez-vous with the Commodore at the Ullipallilli system.

In service,
Captain April Coswell, Executive Officer, temporarily in command of the USS Maxwell


OOC Notes:

- This notecard was done after the fact. Much fun was had!

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

--> We are a scout and suppression 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!

Executive Officer’s Log:

Stardate: 190211

Location: Near planetoid located 168 million kilometres from Loganno Nebula

Alert Status: red

Narrative

I am recording this after reviewing data supplied by the ship’s computer, for reasons which will become clear in this log.

After leaving the Loganno nebula, we picked up a weak, repeating signal. As we were on no urgent timetable to get to Ullipallilli, and as it was unclear whether this might be a distress call, we diverted course to investigate. On site, we found a sort of satellite, which seemed rather ancient, guarding a planetoid on which sensors found debris from some 20-30 ships. We launched a probe to investigate, but the satellite suddenly came to life and captured the probe with a grapple. After scanning it, it emitted a pulse at the Maxwell. The bridge flight recorder tells us that everyone on the bridge lost consciousness at this point.

When we woke up, we found ourselves both confused and unfamiliar with the systems on the bridge. In other words, although we seem to have retained knowledge of who we are and each other, we no longer know how to operate the ship’s systems.

When the pulse happened, Ops had been running a translation on the satellite’s binary code transmission. The result came in after we came to - basically, the transmission said « Keep away - you have been warned ».

With the help of the ship’s computer, we have determined that the pulse from the device was bio-psionic. Hence, we must turn to Medical to try to reverse the pulse’s effects. The computer was kind enough to show us where sickbay is located, and how to activate the EMH - obviously, Dr. Mesmeriser is affected as well. My hope is that if we have the EMH successfully reverse the memory loss in her, she can then treat all of us.

In service,
