Mavrik:
Hearing the orders for an expedition to board the mysterious station at last! Mavrik had a thought. It couldn't be only marines, could it? Thinking it over, he rose from his seat, saying 'Captain, I'd like to volunteer for the second team. They might need a medic if something happens, and an anthropologist if this becomes a first-contact situation.'

 Travis looks up from his Station frowns slightly. "Councillor you are in all likelihood correct". "But consider the situation we find ourselves in please."
  "While we are forced by circumstance to send in the marines as a checking boarding team, we can not yet afford to spare or waste personnel beyond that point".
"If medical personnel are needed, we can either beam people in or beam the team out.
Your station should be at that point in medical awaiting events to unfold"

Taeko's voice is calm and modulated not to give offence while making the situation clear.

'Of course, sir.' Mavrik agreed respectfully, not put out by the objection, 'But we also have to consider if our first contact is with a phaser, or an open hand.'

Taeko nods "that is up to the commander of the boarding party". "It should be noted how ever that Star fleet has always been at its heart we come in peace."

Re: Day Two:  A New Home
Terry sat up and swung his legs so he now sat upon the bed. The room spun and his hand went immediately to his head. He tried to make the spinning stop as he rubbed his eyes with his hand.

"I asked if Crystal and Melissa were ok." He put his hand down and looked the Vulcan straight in the eyes. "Your silence is telling me they are not."

"Apologies.  You have been unresponsive for approximately 18 hours local time."  Suran moved to Yeager's side after finding a tricorder.  He begins a scan but also makes sure that the man won't pitch forward.  "I do not recall treating any with those names.  Are they crew members?"

Re: Day Two:  A New Home
Listening to the orders being passed around the bridge, and those to the marine teams, Admiral Zenerin waited until everyone had their assignments.  From his position on the bridge he looked over at Commander Jericho and nodded his head slightly.  "Commander, it is time. Let us find out what is on board this station."

He stayed to the side of the bridge so as not to interrupt the crew's cohesion. He knew that a new crew takes time to bond, and now is not the time to interrupt.  Knowing his decision would cause a flurry of activity he let Commander Jericho take over and waited for the reports from the away team.

Re: Day Two:  A New Home
Lieutenant Fontaine and his small crew were already out of the hanger bay by now and starting their scans. They had been preparing for launch as soon as they had entered the new quadrant and it was only a couple minutes for them to clear the deck to push out and support the scanning operations for the Hyperion.

It was only a minute later when Mathias got the order as a go and tapped his comm badge.

=/\=This is Major Dahlstrom. Acknowledged, Commander. Mission is a go,=/\= he replied into the badge.

He tapped the badge once more. =/\=Captain Tiyeri, you are a go. I say again, Second Platoon is a go,=/\= he said into his comm badge. The various teams that made up her platoon were scattered around the numerous Transporter stations on the ship. It would only be a matter of second to have the platoon pushing through the alien base.

He hated this part of leadership. Pushing Marines out to fight without being with them was heart wrenching for him. It was hard enough when he was with them, but at least then he felt he could affect the outcome more directly. But here he was, in charge of an element large enough that there was no effective way for him to do so. He was thankful that Tiyeri seemed more than up to the task.

He tapped his comm badge one last time. =/\=First Platoon, stand by. Review scans and images produced by the away teams. Time to transport, two minutes,=/\= he said, as they started positioning themselves where Tiyeri's platoon had been only seconds before. The two minutes would give the lead teams an opportunity to obtain a foothold and possibly locate points of interest not already picked up on scans for the follow on team to maneuver to.

Re: Day Two:  A New Home
Meg nodded at the request from the Captain. "Aye sir, information will be sent momentarily." Meg's fingers danced across the console as she compiled, packaged, and sent the data.

=/\="Major Dahlstrom, all scans and data that we have collected on the station are being sent to you now. Good luck."=/\= After she signed off, she looked at the viewscreen as if visual inspection would provide any more information. She was vaguely aware that the lack of atmosphere meant that she was somewhere down the line of emergency response personnel, having no need to actually breathe. But until any orders came through of that sort, she went back to monitoring the ship and the information they had gathered on the space station.

In reply to Suran Lhai (msg # 25):

"Are they crew members?" Terry started to slide off the bed and stand up, till he became woozy again. He steadied himself with a hand on the bed. "Crystal and Melissa are my wife and..."

He got a sharp pain in his head and then the veil was lifted. "And they are on Earth aren't they?" Terry's mind was fuzzy, but things were coming back to him. "Sorry. I think the horse hit me harder in the head than I thought." Terry leaned back against the bed and rubbed his head some more.

"So, let's pretend that I don't recall certain things and you start by reminding me who you are again. Not to be nosy or anything, just the pain in my head that seems to be blocking some memories. Oh, and could I have more water?"

"That was a...." Terry then realized once again he was speaking to a Vulcan. "Oh never mind." He sat back and let his mind clear a bit. "So, I was out for two days, huh? Where does that put us? I guess we survived that old sling shot did we? Well I guess everyone else survived it more than I did."

Re: Day Two:  A New Home
Tiyeri took a deep breath as she stood on the transporter pad. She checked her space suit over one last time and then turned to make sure her platoon was all ready as well. ++Copy that Major, we're ready. I'll try to contact you once I'm on the base.++ She took another deep breath, transporter travelling always got the seasoned marine nervous. "Alright platoon you heard the Major, we're going in first. Hold your fire unless myself or the Major clears you to fire."

After addressing her platoon she turned around and closed her eyes as she waited to be transported over to the space station.

Sialk made his way to the bridge. He wanted to be ready when the marines arrived. The engineering experience possessed by Sialk would be needed for the next away team.

Re: Day Two:  A New Home
The first team materialized inside the station.  Everything was dark and quiet.  There was barely any atmosphere readings and there was no oxygen in the air around them.  The room they appeared inside was of a design not familiar to anyone on the team.  The consoles surrounding them appeared powered down and showed no signs of activity or use.  Everything was still and silent and almost felt like being inside a crypt that has been sealed for over a thousand years.

In reply to Suran Lhai (msg # 35):

Terry took a drink of water. The room had stopped spinning and his head was clearing. It seemed his body was acclimating itself.

"Remember huh?" He thought for a moment. "We were getting ready to launch....some sort of catapult device if I recall. Then there were spikes, the systems were going crazy....the ship was on the fringe of tearing itself apart."

He thought for another moment and then had an "aha" moment. "There was a signal, like another ship somewhere out there. Don't know if they were messing with us or not....but then....nothing." Terry shook his head. "Don't recall much after that."

Terry took a moment to feel the vibrations on the bed, from the floorboards. There weren't many vibrations. With his best guess he assumed they were nearly stopped, maybe an established orbit. "Well wherever we are, it seems as if we have reached a destination of some sort. We're hardly moving."

Suran nodded.  "That was the Iron Horse.  Some sort of experimental vessel.  They seemed to cause technical issues due to whatever experimental technology they were using.  We should be free from the influence now."

Satisfied that he had a complete report of Yeager's state, he handed the pad off to another Medical officer.  "Whatever that destination may be.  Get some rest.  I am certain you will want to return to work soon."

Taeko turns to the Captain as the data feeds what is being encountered back to him. " Sir who built the station and how long ago?
Do we know?

In reply to Suran Lhai (msg # 39):

The Iron Horse. Yeah, he liked that name. "Ok, maybe for I'll heed the doctor's advice and lay down for a bit."

Terry hated the infirmary. Too isolated, couldn't really get any real news about what was happening on the ship, cause they just wanted you to relax, not fuss, rest - and get back to work.

But the bed felt strangely comfortable and it seemed to wrap him up in it. *There was this Vulcan in Engineering....* he thought to himself as he drifted off to sleep. *He was a smart one, as much as Terry could recall. Something about frequencies....*

And Terrence Yeager was asleep.

Tiyeri growled a little as she materialised and shook her head a little. "Alright 2nd Platoon turn on your lights. Seamus and Johnson cover the rear. O'Malley and Smith take point. Hold fire Platoon and move out, keep it tight and be careful platoon, lets try and find the engine room and secure that, so someone of engineering can come in and turn on the power."

As the platoon started to move she turned to her XO "Sam try and contact the Colonel and keep him up to date on our progress." The woman nodded and tried to communicate  with Mathias, keeping him up to date on the progress the 2nd platoon was making.

Re: Day Two:  A New Home
Mathias stood by along with the remaining MarDet as Second Platoon started the initial breech of the alien complex. The feed from the advance forces streaming into his HUD as Tiyeri's element pushed deeper into the structure. His eyes danced as more of the facility became known to him, looking for key features to direct the lead element and to plan for the follow on teams.

=/\= This is Dahlstrom, we're getting your feeds, =/\= he replied to the initial contact from Tiyeri's comm specialist. =/\= Data stream seems clean. Time to First Platoons transport, one minute thirty, =/\=

He tapped his wristband to shift frequencies to the ship's, =/\= Commander Takamuko, Dahlstrom. You are receiving the data streams like we are, correct? =/\=

Re: Day Two:  A New Home
Terrance had a fascination with horses. In fact he had a fascination with anything that was "Western". He saw the spaceships of today as "Wagon Trains" to the stars and the crew were all rough riders trying to tame the Last, Wild Frontier.

At least that's what his psyche was telling him at that moment. Terry was riding a beautiful palomino across some endless Badlands. He was alone. Not lost, just wandering. Wandering out in the vast wilderness where a man could find himself, really find what he was made of.

He thought of his two girls back home and how eventually he and his horse would someday wander back onto the farm and settle down. He knew this, and someday he would be ready, but not today. Today he wandered, today he dreamt. Terry slept peacefully in the infirmary resting, and wandering, until he healed. Until it was time for him to come on home.

Re: Day Two:  A New Home
The mission was moving along as teams moved into the interior of the station.  There were no power or atmosphere readings to indicate there was any life on board.  Power readings were also showing no indicators. Oddly even background radiation from the system's star barely registered on the team's instruments.

The ten minute mark passed since the team had beamed over.  All was quiet on the bridge and there were no signs of ships or other anomolies anywhere.
