    "Is it junk?"

    "No. Quite the opposite."

    "But it won't work, right?"

    "As far as I can tell, it should work exactly as intended, with a considerable margin for error, but less margin if worked by someone familiar with it. So basically, exactly what he told you. It's quite a nice bit of workmanship, really."

    "Oh, COME on, Caroline, that's not what I wanted to hear..."

    Kurts threw his hands up in exasperation. He paced around the cargo bay office, randomly strangling the air. Lt. Caroline Sy watched him, with a gleam of amusement in her eyes that she managed to keep away from her lips.

    "I'm sorry to disappoint you, Steven...looks like there's a good chance your team won't die outside an enemy shield."

    "That's not what I mean, Caroline...."

    "Then what do you mean?"

    "This transfer guy, he's just...he just got here, and he's already butting into mission briefings like he's been part of the crew forever. I mean, the arrogance just pours out of him. I just met him and he already seems insufferable. I was kind of hoping that his gizmo wouldn't work. You know, to kind of take him down a peg or two."

    Sy responded with the patient, patronizing tone of a middle school teacher. "I see. That can be very annoying. This Thane seems not unlike a young special forces Lieutenant who strolled off the transporter pad onto this ship as if he expected to hear a bosun's whistle announce his arrival. The same cocky, arrogant young lieutenant who I heard mocking Lieutenants Chase and Frost over their own plans for inflitrating the island during a briefing, what, three days ago?"

    "You're not funny, Caroline."

    "I know. It's why I'm an Outfitter instead of a comedian. Stop being so dramatic, Steven, I swear you make pouting into an art form. We both know that you value the mission over your pride, and that the only reason you don't like this Thane is because he's as confident as you are."

    "I don't like the color of his fur, either," mumbled Kurts.

    "Hush. You're going to want to look over these specs yourself for redundancy's sake, but your best bet is to let him operate it. It's a good design, similar to some of the shield crackers that the Starfleet Corps of Engineers worked on during the tail end of the war. Unfortunately, though, Starfleet regs mandate a lot more safety measures and testing to make this less feasible for us to put in the field. Now excuse me, I need to go out and speak to this charming visitor of ours, whom I haven't met, but already like."

    "That hurts, Sy."

    "Sickbay is on Deck 8," she said over her shoulder, as she strode back into the cargo bay.


    USS Ares



    Thane himself is in his own gear consisting of the Armour sans cape but he has his helmet with him which is resting under an arm. A sealable suit that provides an atmosphere and protection but isn't sealable like a space suit. Additionally he has his disruptor pistol side arm. He offers a hand to her "I'm Thane. Take a scan as you need, or I can run you through how it operates." He's got a small utility belt worn on with him.

    (( TAG: Biiqs))
    "Pleasure to meet you, Thane. I'm Lieutenant Caroline Sy, head of the Outfitting Department." She cheerfully offered a small, pale hand to be swallowed by his large paw. "Our main goal is to help equip security officers for field operations, so if you ever need help or have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me or any member of my staff."

    She motioned to a Bolian male and Human female, each with equipment in their hands.

    "A second scan won't be needed, Lieutenant Thane. We took the liberty of taking the initial cargo analysis scans of your armor as soon as we were informed you were added to the mission, and designing these additions to your armor. It should make it easier for you, so you won't have to go through the learning curve of completely new equipment. Petty Officer Keita?"

    The human woman approached with a relatively large piece of armor. If one looked closely, it could be envisioned as sticking securely and aerodynamically to the breastplate of Thane's suit. "This device is a localized sensor dampener. It's designed to soak in active scans to cloak your approach. It's by no means foolproof, but with the diversion being thrown up by the attack squadron, it should be enough to get you to the ground without being detected. It also contains a short range transmitter. I know your armor already contains it's own communications suite, but what makes this transmitter unique is that it uses rotating forms of low profile EM radiation to transmit voice communications during missions like this. The range is very limited, less than a kilometer, but its virtually guaranteed not to be detected, as it tends to get washed out with all the natural radiation in the environment. These transmitters just screen out the background for the specific patterns they're programmed to decode."

    "And this," said Sy, holding an
    "The next two items....well, they're a bit less complicated, but...." Sy continued, motioning for the Bolian to come forth. Taking a peek at Thane's waist and feet, she remarked, "I hope we got your size right...."

    Thane would give her a polite bow of the head "A pleasure to meet you LT Sy." He would shake that pale hand in his own rather large, fuzzy hand and it would be a firm handshake but not the kind of overcompensatory sort where limbs get squished. He was far more presentable though than he had been prior and when appropriate released her hand. "I will not hesitate to contact you when I need help or have questions. Thank you." He'd glance to both the Bolian and Human with the equipment in hand and approached him.

    He studied the armour piece whilst they explained how it operated and worked, taking mental notes of everything that was involved with it. Some notes on where it would fit over the breast plate and if it would interfere with anything he had built in which it thankfully would not! They had done amazing work to have it fit and not make him look too fat or interfere with his equipment. "Lets get it fitted then, then we can see about getting my own comm linked in with the transmitter. Shouldn't be to hard but.. it is a fair bit older than what is currently in use by the Federation."

    Looking to the other equipment that was to be issued he takes a quick look at it, then his feet and waist. "...Long as it doesn't make me look fat eh?" He asked with a bit of a cheeky tone. They'd have it all right though "Alright. Any questions you might have for me at all?"

    After his shift concluded, Max went down to sickbay to have the procedure on his stump done. Nerves crept in to an extent. As he entered sickbay, Max nodded to the CMO as he sat down to wait.

    Sickbay


    Attachment 11513

    Attachment 9774

    Christopher had spent the last two hours reviewing the latest medical journals and Starfleet Medical bulletins. Galen III was in midst of a pandemic and a significant portion of the hospital ships in the region had been diverted to assist with the USS Bevan leading the task force. Christopher was slightly jealous of those men and women, venturing into a dangerous area to combat an unknown pathogen. With a sigh, he closed down the terminal and thought how lucky he was to have a sickbay of his own.

    Looking through his office window, Christopher saw Max enter and nod slightly. Christopher stood and gave the man a wave while checking the status of the operating rooms. Walking out into the main Sickbay, Christopher sat down beside Max, "Hey, Max, good to see you. The O.R. is free and being prepped so we have a few minutes if there's any last minute questions you might have."

    "Well," Christopher said "we have the OR booked for three hours. That should give us plenty of time. We're prepared to take our time to make sure that it's done right and that you don't have any complications or re-occurrence."

    Out of the corner of his eye, Christopher saw one of the OR nurses give him a wave and a nod.

"Lets get it fitted then, then we can see about getting my own comm linked in with the transmitter. Shouldn't be to hard but.. it is a fair bit older than what is currently in use by the Federation."
    Lt. Sy was unexpectedly charmed by the massive hand that engulfed hers, squeezing with a polite firmness that was no doubt a fraction of his strength. After she proceeded with her briefing, she watched Ensign Malin and Petty Officer Keita begin their fittings. The latter answered his question about the transmitter.

    "Don't worry about that, sir. We've had a bit of experience with Klingon communication protocols during the war years. Starfleet Engineering designed a sort of a quick interface program, due to the....well, non-standardized equipment that some KDF forces carry. They encountered some officers who favored older equipment they found more reliable. Klingon equipment does seem built to last though, I'll give them that."

    Looking to the other equipment that was to be issued he takes a quick look at it, then his feet and waist. "...Long as it doesn't make me look fat eh?" He asked with a bit of a cheeky tone. They'd have it all right though "Alright. Any questions you might have for me at all?"
    All chuckled at his joke about looking fat, which set the two junior crewmen more at ease. It seemed that only bulky armor would give someone that impression. He appeared to be even fitter than Commander R'Turan.

    "No, no questions, sir," replied Ensign Malin. Just do let us known something doesn't check out or if you need something explained. Communications with Outfitting is available even during the mission, just use channel C.

    "Okay, Quint, hit me..."

    "Distant shores," sang Ensign Quentin Limli, "We're on distant shores...let the solar winds carry me home..."

    "Easy," replied Kurtz. "'Far Cry' by Fitzroy Clarke. Circa 2355. Did I ever tell you I saw him in concert during my Academy days? He still has it."

    The members of Phoenix Team sat in the back of the Argo shuttle as the vessel sped toward the planet. The course heading led to the village, but the angle would place it perfectly to unload its "cargo" prior to reaching it.


    "I almost lost my reflex...My bare feet was burn...That i almost lost my nerves...My fingers are shaking as the--"

    "Geez, Quent, this is supposed to harder. Sponji Reggae, by Black Uhuru. The album is Red. 1981.

    There were 9 total to deploy, the eight members of Phoenix Team and their new ally, Thane. The minutes prior to deployment would likely provide an interesting view of their various preparation methods. The Benzite, Ensign Perseck stared at detailed three dimensional map of the terrain. Lt. Jg. Arial Chin spoke in hushed, but animated tones about a 3D chess competition to the Tellarite noncom seated beside her. Ensign Wolf appeared to be sleeping



    "I could see it in all of her eyes, All of the cheating, and all of the lies..."

    "Sulamid Song," Sochya Ranks. Forge Sessions. 2263. Good stuff." Kurtz turned to Ensign Perseck. "Okay, 'Seckie, let's go."

    "I fail to see the object of this..."

    "Ensign Perseck, please. You know the rule if you're going to spend the trip staring at the same map we all stared at prior to deployment."

    A loud sigh. "I spy with my little eye....something blue...."

    "You'd better not be talking about the ocean, 'Seck...."

    "I am, sir...you win."

    Kurts grumbled. "Spoilsport."

    A chime sounded, alerting the team that they would be over the drop zone in sixty seconds. Everyone stood and took positions near the drop door, even Wolfe, who appeared to come to full alertness mid snore. "One of these days, I'm going to have to learn those Tarkalean meditation techniques, Damian." To the group, he barked, "Seal them up, check them up, Comm Channel A"

    Each member ran a quick equipment diagnostic on their suits, and turned to do quick, but thorough visual inspection of the person to the left of them. Kurt's personally looked over Thanes suit, flashing him a thumbs up sign. "You look good to go, Lieutenant. Happy Hunting."
