Mission #219: Of Meat Pies and Metalworkers

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.

190722.1938

Stardate: 190722

Mission Name: Of Meat Pies and Metalworkers

Story Concept: April Coswell

The following information is IN CHARACTER information.

Location: Unknown pre-warp planet called "New Babbage"

Alert Status: green

Despite the locals' explanation that we are stuck on this planet as the other "outlanders" whose ships lost power like ours, we are determined to leave Babbage. Science and Engineering are building a homemade radar dish in a hope to find the source of the dampening field ourselves. Now we just need to power that dish... and not arouse the suspicions of the locals.

Captain April Coswell, Acting CO, USS Maxwell


OOC Notes:

- This note was written 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 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!

Captain’s Log:

Stardate: 190722

Location: 1lyr from the Babbagian system

Alert Status: green

Narrative

Despite the locals' refusal to tell us where the dampening field was being generated from, we carried out our plan to build a homemade radar with the help of a local metalworker. We then connected the dish to Commander Forcella's implants and managed to get a bearing for the source of the field.

While we were working on this, Te'ellis and Commander Tairov were interrogating a man who had identified himself as a Starfleet officer - one Captain Raizel Foster, who claimed his ship, the USS Sidewinder, had crashed here in 2255. Following the bearing from the radar brought us back to the area where we had found him - he gave me a disk and asked me to deliver it home.

We found the power plant generating the dampening field in the basement of a local building. While security guarded the doors, Commander Forcella worked to weaken the field enough for us to beam back to the Maxwell, reinitialize its systems and make our way our of the sea and into orbit before the Babbagians managed to restore the field.

I will be requesting that Starfleet deploy a warning buoy at the border of this system.

It should also be noted that as we left the system, I received comms from Fleet Captain Pendleton ordering the Maxwell to set course immediately for Privari space, where it has been reported that Commodore Nora Gerhadsen might be located... but in grave danger, if not already dead.

In service,

Captain April Coswell, Acting Commanding Officer
