Mission #259: Spirally Barred, Part I

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, JayceRebel, April Coswell

Mission Name: Spirally Barred, Part I

Story Concept: Nora Gerhadsen

The following information is IN CHARACTER information.

Location: Deep Space, the Sylleran Sector Block, enroute to the Hapke Cluster

Alert Status: green

USS Maxwell has resumed course to the Hapke Cluster, though we are still in the Sylleran Sector Block. As we fly out, of course, the ship is not idle: sensor sweeps are being conducted at all times if for no other reason than to keep our Science Department sharp and on the ball.

Commodore Nora Gerhadsen, USS Maxwell, Commanding


OOC Notes:

- This notecard was done after the fact.

- 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!

Command Log:

Stardate: 200511

Location: In orbit around M1765-791 Prime h

Alert Status: green

While enroute to the Hapke Cluster, USS Maxwell was directed to divert 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. Dr. Selden is an astrophysicist; he had traveled to the M-1765-791 system in order to observe a rare astrophysical phenomenon. Maxwell was directed to the system as a result of Dr. Selden having failed to contact Starfleet in a timely manner. Apparently his family (wife and two daughters) was scheduled to be with him.

The M1765-791 System

M1765-791 (the 791st surveyed system in the M1765 star cluster) has an A-type blue giant main sequence star. This is a still-forming system with a proto-planetary disk, but a great deal of the inner system has been swept clean by the formation of a "hot Jupiter" proto-planet (designated M1765-791 Prime), having a mass of approximately five Jovian masses (five times the mass of Jupiter). This massive proto-planet is on a highly eccentric orbit, and is projected to strike the central star in short order. Dr. Selden came to this system in order to make observations of the impact and the resulting stellar eruptions. An old theory posits that the impact of the proto-planet on the stellar surface may induce a nova-event, and the forming of a 'planetary nebula,' or expanding shell of stellar material. The proto-planet hosts a plethora of moons, some of which are still quite hot due to residual impact formation heat. However, there are other, smaller moons which might represent captured asteroids.

Encounter with Dr. Selden's ship

Upon entering the system, Maxwell found a dim non-thermal light source on one of the proto-planet's moons (moon 'h'). This turned out to be Dr. Selden's ship. He was originally unwilling to speak to us, ignoring initial hails. He eventually allowed an Away Team to beam over. We are currently awaiting word from the team. Note that 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.
