    Runabout Gander

    About .5 LY from DS9

    Mariella walked from the sleeper cabin to the cockpit, with a soda in hand. She was wearing a light grey tank and her favorite lounge pants, a gift from her husband on her 40th. She sat down at the controls next to the ship's ambassador, Sam Urquhart and his andorian wife, Akyv. Jones sat the drink down on a small table close by and placed her hands on the controls.

    - ETA to DS9, twenty point six minutes. Looks like you're ready to get back at it.

    Sam turned to Jones and smiled. He wore an old wrestling t-shirt, displaying the NJPW logo. He then placed his hands behind his head and leaned back.

    - I am! Three months is too long to be off.

    Akyv walked in, wearing a black t-shirt, leather pants and a short-cut leather jacket. She knew late '90s Earth fashion and knew how to wear it. She put her hands on Sam's chest from behind, softly kissing his ear in the process.

    - Wish I could've been with you more.
    - Sorry, babe. I was called away for three days for diplomatic meetings. These things happen.
    - Not like you were both up each other's-

    Something caught her attention. There was an unusual amount of ships hanging in space around Deep Space 9. Starships of various sizes, classes, even from the Romulans and the Klingons. This triggered Jones' 'Yellow Alert' to go off in her head. Sam and Akyv saw this too. He had a look of worry on his face.

    - Hope its not another war.
    - Me too. I read about thirty-six vessels in park around the station. It's much more than what the usual traffic is.

    Jones opened the comms to Operations.

    =^= DS9, this is Runabout Gander, requesting permission to dock. Also requesting operational status.=^=

    A voice came over the speakers.

    =^= Captain Jones, Welcome back. Ares is ready and waiting. You are cleared to dock, however, Admiral Dalton is asking you to beam aboard the station immediately.=^=

    =^= Copy. Gander out. =^=

    Jones got up and threw on her uniform jacket. It was hanging on one of the chairs ever since they departed the station three months ago.

    - Sam, get an operational update from Biiqs as soon as you get to the ship. I'll get it from you once I get a shower. God, I smell like ass.

    Sam snorted in laughter, nodding. Jones stepped onto the pad, while Sam initiated the transporter sequence. She was back at work, but what would that 'work' entail?

    USS Ares
    Three Days Ago


    Three days...

    Each day of the last three months slowly dissolved into another, forming one steady stream of temporal sludge that swept Biiqs away in its current. Three months for repairs initially sounded generous and relaxing. Not very difficult at all. Certainly not as difficult as it was to repair one of his former ships, the USS Tian An Men, as it drifted dead in a nebula during the Dominion War. The Ares was parked safely at a friendly Starbase, had a very capable crew, and support from Starfleet nearby. What could go wrong?

    The ODN relay network, for one.

    Seven relays just suddenly shut down, on the fifth day of repairs, complicating other repairs. He had a brief meeting with the engineering staff, who assured him that it was because of the unique aftereffects of the weaponry used by the aptly named USS Renegade. They understood it and had it under control in a matter of hours.

    Until they didn't.

    Cascade reactions. So many cascade reactions. Biiqs had to add another duty shift to avoid the overall work of repairing the ship falling significantly behind schedule. And the solution to the issue was purely found by chance: A sentient (?) holodeck character escaped the holodeck through the ODN relays and started to wage war on the ship. The crewman running the program noticed that the main character was missing and could not be called back into the program by any means. The hologram was finally isolated to one relay, but that relay could not be purged and repaired until Starfleet dispatched a Judge Advocate to assess its sentience and process its asylum request the following Tuesday.

    That wasn't as bad as the vole infestation, though.

    It wasn't certain exactly how they got into the ship; there were often many connections made between a ship under repair and its dock. But by the second month they had claimed exclusive territory of the Jeffries tubes. The horrid things were aggressive, fast breeding, and just plain mean. Medical was treating at least four bites a day and the work crews were borrowing phasers from the armory to complete their shifts safely. Biiqs had to call in a Bajoran extermination company to come in and handle the problem. When they finally did, the company politely informed Biiqs that this sort of vole was a special kind of vole, apparently on the Federation Science Council's Endangered Species of Interest list. Something about being able to spend short periods of time in total vacuum - a remarkable adaptation for station based life forms. So it wasn't until the third day of the next week that someone from the Science Council could come in and assess the voles, and another week until every vole could be humanely trapped, tagged, and transported to Starbase 234. Which of course kept people out of the Jeffries tube and slowed the work more.

    All this was on top of all of the other duties laid upon his shoulders by virtue of being the senior officer of the ship. Leave requests, transfers, duty rosters. Hours of monotony punctuated with engineering alarms and vole induced terror.

    At first, it wasn't bad. It was rather invigorating. Biiqs loved a challenge, and he was an excellent promoter of morale and synergy. But there's only so much you can say to an overworked, vole bitten engineer whose leave requests have been canceled. Biiqs made it a point to work along side them whenever he had the chance. Lead by example. And so he made the fatal mistake of leadership - not knowing when to stop leading by example.

    When he wasn't in his office, he could be found on the bridge. Or in Main Engineering. Or in a Jeffries tube. Or inspecting a repaired phaser coupling. Or on the hull. Or in the Junior Officer's Lounge - he had a permanent invitation to Karaoke night and did not disappoint. Until one day, whilst crawling across the floor of Cargo Bay 2 with a tricolor, hunting down a bad EPS conduit, he awoke with a start inside his cabin, courtesy of his longtime friend, Transporter Chief Fatima Khaira. It wasn't until then that he realized it was 0417 ship time and he had fallen asleep searching for the conduit in the cargo bay. Someone had tipped Khaira off and she transported him directly to his bunk.

    After that, he vowed to do better...and slightly less, leaving it in the hands of the trustworthy crew.

    So it came to this day, three days before the captain was due to return, that he received the report from the Chief Engineer that all repairs were completed early in the day shift. He slept for a full 8 hours. Freshly invigorated, he took a sonic shower, ordered raktajino and a plate of potato olés and vinegar, and settled in a chair to read the afternoon reports.

    Until he remembered that the captain was coming back in three days. Less than three days. Everything had to be cleaned and inspected with a keen, discriminating eye. He couldn't hand over a garbage scow to the captain.


    With a sigh, and one last look at his cooling olés, he leaped up, put on his best uniform, and headed out to complete the work that was never done.

    USS ARES Shuttle
    Deck 24 Parking Bay
    attachment.php?attachmentid=15327

    As the door raised from the phaser scarred Type 11 Shuttlecraft, Jarroth quickly exited the vessel brushing past the several maintenance crews hurrying towards the craft he had now become quite intimate with. With several completed missions on his so called day off, followed by nearly 5 days of continuous work a now heavily fatigued Ensign headed towards the turbolift for well needed R&R.

    He was however worried about a matter that had occurred during his most recent outing. Tapping his badge he requested Deck 8: Medical Sickbay.

    r1iCiE1
    Go ahead...

    Xa0jSf3
    Ensign Jarroth here... I wanted to find out about--

    r1iCiE1
    Officer Kowalaski is in stable condition. I can assure you we have him stabilized and he's been responding very well to treatment so far.

    Xa0jSf3
    Good to hear that. Would you please... keep me informed?

    r1iCiE1
    We sure will. Now get some rest Ensign. Doctor's orders.

    Xa0jSf3
    ((Chuckles)) Will do. Thanks again.

    As the turbolift hummed Jarroth couldn't escape the sensation to check his PADD to see if there were any recent updates regarding the current engineering damage assessment of ARES. Shifting in his posture he learned that ODN Network Inspection had been added.

    Jarroth's eyebrows raised. Just about every deck on the ship had an Vertical ODN compartment. Jarroth realized his so called 6 hour sleep session just became a 3 hour nap. Upon making his way to his quarters taking off his uniform he realized he had little time to even process what had occurred.

    He took a big risk in attempting to bluff the Orion Interceptor that had destroyed the two other shuttlecraft. His bluff even fooled the onboard prisoner that he was responsible for escorting to DS9. Jarroth had not even served a full day aboard the ARES and he had already almost lost his life.

    He remembered the words of a former acquaintance he had recently met...
    6LNqUMs
    “Battle? Yes, we have seen a lot of action on the ARES. Not the good kind either. Our first Captain was incapacitated on our maiden voyage encounter with an orion marauder. He was evacuated to DS9 shortly after and our Tactical officer took over as Captain. He did a good job for the most part, but machinations with some Starfleet faction ran its course… and we got our current Captain,” explained Jei.
    It would seem that Jei's assessment had merit now that Jarroth was witness to more fallen officers due to the recent Orion attacks to add to the current growing body count...

    Space-station Deep Space Nine

    Ops

    Name:  FAB-spacer-small.png
Views: 39
Size:  4.1 KB

    Mariella materialized on the Ops transporter. She had gotten the order to beam to the station as soon as possible. She stepped down and look to the commander of the Station, Captain Sullivan.

    - Hey Richard! You look busy as ever.

    Richard smiled at her, and extended a hand, which she shook.

    - This many ships, it feels like Sisko might just fly back out of that Wormhole. Admiral's in a conference with various other Captains.
    - Any clue why their al here?
    - That's for the Admiral to explain.

    Mariella crossed her arms and leaned on one of the consoles. After about a minute, a slightly grey-haired man appeared at the office doors.

    - Captain Jones, let's talk.

    Mariella followed the admiral into the office. He gestured to her to take a seat and she did.

    - Captain, I'm sorry for keeping you from your ship. I know how itchy you are to get back at it.
    - There can be too much rest time. So, yeah, I'm more than ready.
    - I want you to meet someone. This new taskforce is his idea.

    He then nodded to a older, bearded man, sitting on the couch in shadow.

    The man paused before getting to his feet. He had a walking stick or cane of some sort, evidently forgoing in sort of corrective surgery. Even with the appearance of oldness, there was an energetic look in his eye.

    "Name's Caymen Greener," he said in his gruff voice, the beard covering some of his pronunciation of certain consonants. "And Taskforce Phoenix was not just my idea. I just moaned and groaned enough to get her going, finally."

    Normally someone might have chuckled at his sarcasm or hyperbole. But Caymen was serious about his grumblings to the fleet. He knew how to throw his experience around, and he did so well into retirement.

    "Now then, Taskforce Phoenix is a new experiment, of sorts," Greener said, walking over to the main display in the admiral's office. A series of orders and descriptions and a list of ships and their capabilities and command staff - all came up behind him as he spoke. "Usually a task force is put together for a specific mission, or a task, if you will. But not always. Sometimes we just need to lump some ships together and send them on their way."

    Dalton stroked his chin, with a quizzical look.

    - So, its basically an 'on-call' fleet?

    "Precisely." Caymen poked the screen with his stick. "And DS9 is the perfect launching pad for her. We already have several needs that these vessels can meet right at the onset of the task force." He started to pace back towards the couch. "All we need is for someone to hit the big green 'GO' button." The old man managed to crack a smile of sorts.

    Mariella crossed her arms. She looked slightly off-put by the idea, but was interested.

    - Who all is in this Taskforce?

    Greener looked to Dalton and then back to Mariella. "The final role is not up to me, but so far we have the Charleston, Athena, August, umm..."

    Dalton cleared his throat. "Cheticamp... hold on, I have the list right here--"

    Jones' eyebrow perked. This was some of the best of the fleet and she knew it. She then looked at the list and noticed one ship's name on it.

    - USS Cheticamp? Didn't he...

    Greener's own brow furled. "Wait, Dr. Broughm?" That was a name he hadn't heard in a long time.

    Jones nodded. She had a VERY vivid memory of the doctor that came rushing back.

    - I remember a specific mission that I was on a few years back. I was on an away mission analyzing off fungal growths on the inhabitants of Dacar II. He was called in because the fungi was shown to have some real nasty effects on humanoid species, akin to the Bubonic Plague. His staff had an expert on this kind of stuff, so I figured it'd be more help than what we could come up with. Next thing I know, I had a small fungal growth coming out of my neck and was coughing up blood. He beamed me onto the Cheticamp and started to treat me. After about...I'd say....FIVE MONTHS....I was cleared to return to duty, but not before that man gave me a nickname. Fungirl.

    Several folks chuckled, although Greener just stared off to the side, trying not to tell some of the stories he and Broughm had way back in the day.

    Jones just made a realization.....

    - Neither of you tell Sam.

    Dalton chortled at this. He smiled and put his hand up

    - Not a peep.

    Caymen shrugged, unsure why that would be an issue, but he could wager a guess if he had to. "Any other questions?"

    Mariella shrugged, seemly devoid of any other questions.

    - I got nothing else. I'm assuming you will give us the mission mandate?

    Dalton turned, picked up the padd and handed it to her.

    - Nothing too complex, just what the Ares was tasked before the multiple command switches. Just head out and explore.

    Jones smiled widely. A real opportunity to stretch the legs.

    - I love that!

    "So the Ares is en route?" asked Greener.

    Dalton nodded at the grizzled veteran. He then looked at the PADD on the desk, reading it quickly.

    - She's three days behind schedule. Its not too bad. Consider this a small extension of your vacation. Here...

    Dalton took a few strips of latinum and handed Jones them. She accepted them curiously.

    - Admirals keeping loose change isn't standard practice.
    - Never know when you need to call a friend. Buy yourself a drink at Quark's, maybe play some Dabo?

    Jones just nodded simply

    Greener was wanting to sit down again, watching the latinum exchange. He forgot they still delt in "money" out here quite often. Luckily he had his own stash handy.

    "Ok, I need a drink." Coffee, liquor... didn't matter to Caymen. He looked over at the door and back at Dalton expectantly.

    “I’m off to bed Dad, see you in the morning.” Danre said and proceeded to get up from the coutch with the intent of walking to his bedroom. Just before he would pass infront of his father, buried deep in some report he was making about the fighter squadron, a leg moved up from the floot and a foot landed on the table, barring his route to his bedroom. Inside Danre cursed and let out the breath he was holding with a sigh. “Aaaah Daaaad… come on, I’m exhausted!” he pleaded.

    Without looking up from the report he was writing, or allowing the nearly broken loose belly laugh to be noticed, Schrit raised his left hand and stuck up 3 fingers. When Danre let out another sigh, this time in resignation, and turned around to walk to the computer console in silence he couldn’t help but feel a bit of pride. He might needed a little reminder from time to time, but all in all the commitment and dedication to keep his promises and perform his duty Danre was putting in each and every day was nothing short of amazing, for someone his age.

    The fingers he’d held up reprisented those promises and commitment in a way. One finger was for the pledge he’d taken when the Captain had offered him the deal in the aftermath of the Renegade incident. He had pledged to comit himself to get into Starfleet academy and becoming the best officer he could be in exchange for more security clearance and a commbadge. Oh, and for applying rule number five to the circumventing, breaking and violating of security rules, regulations, protocols and security systems during the Renegade incident in order to gather information, and sending a high priority message to the bridge among other things.

    The second finger was for the, granted, request he made to get an official rank or jobdescription after he had run into some… resistance, shall we say, from some of the officers to his computer access requests and the reports he’d submitted to the Captain and XO on the first few “missions” the Captain and Xo had given him. Specifically the fact that he had asked for it himself, and had therefore no one he could blame except himself, for having to meet the requirements that come with the job.

    The third finger was for a certain officer in the security department who had voiced doubts about Danre’s mental maturity and his abillities to perform the duties required of him by the department. And not just any officer, but the Chief of Security who also happened to be a touch as nails Farasian exchange officer from the KDF.

    And those three fingers, and knowing that Danre hadn’t had the chance to study the Ares’s protocols and procedures concerning directed energy weapon systems were enough to redirect him from the way to his bed to the way to the computer console and study. As he had been assigned to recalibrating the lateral phaser array for his next duty shift, Danre knew he couldn’t afford to not learn everything an ensign was supposed to know before his shift started.

    Schrit couldn’t help but smile though, remembering it had taken himself only three hours to learn enough for ensign level qualification which probably meant Danre would be done in one hour.

    A beep suddenly chimed from the computer console as well as from the padd Schrit was working on, notifying him that a message was waiting for his attention. Opening the message, frowning at the odd time for a message to be delivered for him for a fraction of a second, he found it was good news. In fact, it was the best news he could’ve hoped for and it filled him with joy so much he couldn’t stop himself from pumping his fist in the air and letting out a “Ah yeah! Awesome!! whoohoo!”.
