On the one hand, his quarters here on the 'new' ship didn't really seem to be any different than his quarters had been back on the Dust Runner. It looked to be the same size... a standard starship stateroom.

Once he settled in, though, he realized that it was bigger. Only slightly bigger... not enough to be readily noticeable to the naked eye, but there was a few inches extra elbow room.

There were other subtle differences, too... lighting didn't seem to be as harsh... more diffuse.

It wasn't more luxurious; he certainly couldn't say that. Yet, it felt like it was.

All the rooms had a slightly different decor, too. So maybe that was it. He'd selected the 'lavender' room. The walls had a pale lavender coloring to them.

It wasn't until he laid down that the best feature of all came into play: the star-field ceiling! The ceiling was an elaborate vidscreen. It could be changed to match the rest of the color, or it could be made dark black, or it could show the star-field as if you were looking out a window. The stars moved as the ship moved. How cool was that?

Four hours later Adriannah emerged from her cabin. Pleased that there was more than sufficient space to hold her Clothes, shoes and personal items, infact there was easily enough space to hold eight times what she has. Adriannah headed to the galley for something to eat.

Adriannah floated listlessly across her cabin,  a trail of blood dropplets seeping from a slight cut on her temple, floating along after her.  When the backup gravity generator kicked in, Adriannah dropped unceremoniously to the deck with a slightly muffled thud. She landed partially on her bunk, the rest of her body spilling over it, striking the floor heavily.

Forge cycled the door, testing to see if it was locked. The door opened, and he found Adriannah sprawled over her bed and the floor. +++Medic to the crew quarters, stat! Possible head and neck trauma.+++ he said, having seen similar injuries in battle. While he had a basic understanding of first aid, it was far better to leave it to those medically trained, especially that type of injury. Seeing the chest moving slightly, he knew that he did not need to get a body bag.

Arc was doing his own head count, though doing a bit more than just noting that they were there. Sometimes a little head trauma could take awhile to manifest.

When Harry's comm sounded, Arc hurried to Adriannah's quarters.

The door was already open and Forge was inside with Adriannah on the floor. A quick sweep with his medical scanner showed that she was just unconscious from a bump on the head.

"She's okay," he told Harry and Forge. "Just a bump. I could rouse her, but it's better if she recovers on her own... as long as she's not immediately needed."

"Help me put her back in her bunk."


With the help of the others, he settles Adriannah into the bed. He then gets a cold wet cloth from the fresher sink and applies it to the bump as a compress.

All the standard ones. I don't think anyone bothered upgrading them.

Comms-1
Sensors-1
Astrogation-1
Gunnery-1
Engineering (all)-1
Security-1
Chef-2

As far as anyone knows, there's no such thing as Darrian program-0.

While computer programs are reliable, it usually helps to have a person ride herd on what the computer does. Remember the adage: To err is human, to really frack things up takes a computer!

Arc had been going over some medical reports, updating the crew's files, the usual paperwork when you hit a new starport.

He sat back from the computer terminal, stretched and then went looking for the crew, only to find that most of them had left the ship in search of FOOD, and, no doubt, drink, too.

He saw that Adriannah hadn't gone with them, though, so he swung by her quarters.

"Yo, Adriannah," he called out through the door as he rapped on it. "Sure you wouldn't like to step out a bit, grab some grub and a drink or two, maybe get into some mischief?"

"Of course it would, but with every planet and every starport having different laws, it's almost impossible to avoid them all," Arc answers.

"Half the time you're walking a tightrope and the other half of the time you're running from something you didn't even know you did!"

"Well, maybe a quarter of the time each."

"Did you know that on Bartica, it's illegal to talk to a horse? But it's not illegal for the horse to talk to you! No, it's true! I don't know the rationale behind it, but it had something to do with the Cult of the Sacred Cow."

"It's illegal to be single on Slint. If your spouse dies, you have 24 hours to either marry someone else, usually some other single person in prison, or else leave the planet. It has something to do with the available resources."

Finding nothing even remotely interesting, Adriannah opened the Display, selecting a AV series she watched three episodes.

The closing credits rolled across the display. Adriannah logged into her incoming messages, finding a series of them from Harry; about a Ancient sight they were heading to. This explained the quick departure from the Port. Oh my she thought to herself, guess I've missed out on the find.

After reviewing the sensor logs, Adriannah realizes that the facility that the crew is exploring is potentially very large, since it's on one of the moons of a gas giant in the system.

Adriannah focussed on the sensor logs assessing the different signals it registered; which she found to be taxing task, at the best of times.

Adriannah does pick up some energy readings on the sensors. They are either faint or being shielding somehow, which could be nothing more than metal walls. It does indicate, though, that something in this place is still active.

The lack of interaction from the others, as evidenced by the er or abandonment of her, compounded by the their inability to acknowledg her update was concerning. Prompting her to manover the ship away from possible danger of unexpected explosions. ooc 15 miles.

In her 15 minute com check Adriannah leant that the search team had located a Lab. Interested in the find; she asked if they'd m managed to get their hands on a Portable Computer or Hard Drive from it.

"Well, while the others are exploring, the three of us that remained on board can do some brainstorming," Luise says to Adriannah and Gahler.

"How old do you think this facility is? If it turns out to be an alien base, rather than just some really esoteric human culture, any suggestions on where they came from? Do either of you know of any alien races in this neck of the woods? Foreven seems a likely candidate."

"Without knowing their technology limitations, we don't really know how far they may have come to mine this moon. It might help if we knew what they were mining."

"Anyway, amid all the speculation and wild guesses, we should try to figure out a way to get the salvaged equipment onto the ship. Carrying it halfway through the moon seems way too inconvenient and time consuming. Assuming they find an airlock out into the crevasse, is there some way we can put that junk in a cargo net and haul it up to the ship in one fell swoop? We have a cargo crane. The real question may be: do we have enough chain or cable or strapping?"

Looking up in surprise Adriannah sees Luise & Gahler standing at the Iris of her Cabin.Not a clue about the Race... she replies, enjoying the prospect of documenting the find and possibly identifying the Ancient Species. Any stuff could be shifted using the ships boat.

Gahler gives Adriannah a hard stare for a moment, and then says:

"Really? You got a ship's boat in your pocket?"

He pauses for a few seconds to let his words sink in before continuing.

"Why didn't we think of that when we were trying to get down the crevasse?!"

"Oh, that's right... because we don't have a ship's boat."

"Unfortunately, I don't have a better idea. In this lesser gravity, the cargo crane should easily haul up a cargo net full of loot. Probably be helpful if it was in containers, though."

"And you're right about the length of cable. This ship wasn't designed or equipped for that kind of operation. Maybe they can find a cable down there, since it was a mining operation. They must have had some need for a crane now and then."

"Then again, they are alien. We think. I can't think of any species that has long thin fingers that could be inserted into those holes that passed for key openings. Of course, they may have just used a tool like Arlo is doing."

Returning the obviously intrusive fellow's gaze. Its gratifying to see that you have familiarise yourself with the Ships capabilities. How's your knowledge of Shipboard Internal Maintenance. replied Adriannah crossing to the door she activated its iris door closing it in his face and leaving him in the passage.

Adriannah can probably hear his laughter as he walks away.

He heads back to the bridge to man keep watch on the sensors, even though they were on automatic. Clearly, Luise had wanted him along for another brain to pick.

He'd given his two credits, though.

Surprise and concern about the fellow's statement about no Ship's boat. Adriannah thought this was a good time to address this. Captain will you be getting out the Ship with a auxiliary boat?

Re: Dust Runner Quarters
"It isn't that I haven't considered it, or that it hasn't been brought up before," Luise replies, "but the question has always been what to get and where to put if we do get it."

"We already got the cargo module fastened to the bottom of the ship, so slinging it underneath is mostly out of the question. Putting it dorsally has its own problems... mainly, access. If we got an auxiliary craft and custom modified it to accept the ship's lift up through the bottom, that would be practical. The alternative would be to relocate the lift off to the port or starboard and it pops up within its own airlock to access the airlock of the auxiliary craft."

"That would make the ship a bit less maneuverable, and we might need to reinforce the landing gear."

"The other alternative was to put it in the cargo hold. Regardless of which one we put it in, it'll reduce our cargo capacity."

"Have you got any suggestions for either what to get or where to store it?"

"Oh, sorry... mind was wandering," Luise responded to Adriannah.

"Well, that's what we did to get this ship not so long ago."

"I think we need to make a bit of a go at this one before we consider another one. I suspect we'll find that no matter what ship we get, there'll be something we don't like about it... too old, too slow, too cramped, too wide, too shiny, too beat up... You get the picture."

"You mean have you and Forge been performing your duties well?" Luise replied, referring to the only two new crew on the ship.

"So far, yes. But then, neither of you have really been challenged yet, have you? Out here in space, if you screw up, particularly if you do so badly, you aren't usually alive to be criticized."

"Sometimes, the hardest thing to do is wait."

Re: Frumious Bandersnatch Quarters
"Each of us has our own definition of what 'pressure' is," Luise responded. "It depends on your training and natural aptitude."

"If the computer announces the ship will destruct in 10 seconds and you know you can't get far enough away in time, then you have to disarm the self-destruct fast."

"If your ship gets caught in the gravity well of a black hole, you have to figure a way out or be sucked in and squashed to the size of an atom."

"You're confronted by an overwhelming force of enemy ships--you have three options: resist to the end, surrender, or negotiate."

"Do any of those scenarios sound like pressure to you?"

"I'm not sure it's a test if it kills you if you fail," Luise replies. "But, yes, I've been in a few of those situations. Don't know if they would have killed me, since I apparently passed the test."

She'd been following the ongoing reports of the Away Team and was starting to find it a bit frustrating that she wasn't there to see what they were finding.

"I don't suppose you have any insights into this facility? Does it seem alien to you?"

"I've seen some strange Human customs, and I can't say I'm fully aware of Aslan or Vargr customs, let alone Hiver or K'k'k'ree, but I'm still picking up an alien vibe from this. It's like they didn't quite think the way we do."
