The Redeemer receives a transmission on a secured channel. It is from the Voth scientist that met the Voyager crew years back. He tells the Redeemer that the Voth have come down with a terrible viral epidemic. A female Voth had purchased mining equipment from a reptillian merchant, and some of it contained a dormant virus that was activated by the Voth physiology.
He tells us that after some research, he realized that Human DNA held the key to neutralizing this epidemic.
[12:10] Chase Quinnell: Helm, ETA to Zelda IV?
[12:10] Blush Babii: aye Sir
[12:11] Blush Babii: ETA 5 minutes Sir
[12:11] Blush Babii: reaching Zelda IV Sir, going out of warp
[12:12] Chase Quinnell: Very good.
[12:12] Chase Quinnell: Hail the planet, inform them of our arrival and that we'll begin the conference at 0800 hours.
[12:12] Silkie Dagger: Aye Sir
[12:13] Silkie Dagger opens a channel and sends the message
[12:13] Silkie Dagger: Sir, we have an incoming transmission.
[12:13] Chase Quinnell: Onscreen
[12:13] Silkie Dagger: Aye, Sir
[12:13] ::A reptilian humanoid appears on screen::
[12:14] Blush Babii looks at the humanoid species on the screen
[12:15] Gegan: =A= Greetings Redeemer, I am a Voth scientist by the name of Forra Gegan. I once met with another ship of your kind, the USS Voyager. I come to you in dire need of assistance. Our city ship has been infected by some sort of virus =A=
[12:16] Chase Quinnell: Greetings, Mr. Gegan, what kind of virus are we talking about?
[12:17] Gegan: =A= The virus I speak of was caused by some mining equipment that Minister Odala purchased a while back. It apparently had a dormant virus on it.
[12:17] Chase Quinnell: What can we do to help?
[12:18] Gegan: =A= I have done a bit of research and apparently, human DNA holds the key to stopping this virus, but it would require a great deal of work.. your science officer may be able to help us more than you can. =A=
[12:19] Gegan: =A= I'd like you to rendezvous with us at these coordinates, Gegan out. =A=
[12:19] Chase Quinnell: Helm, set course for those coordinates. Engage at warp 7.
[12:19] Blush Babii: Aye Sir
[12:19] Blush Babii: engaging warp 7
[12:19] michaels Toshi: i've heard of what the Voth did to voyager...
[12:20] Blush Babii: ETA 2 mins Sir
[12:20] Blush Babii: Reaching destination Sir, going out of warp
[12:21] michaels Toshi: well, by what i saw on voyagers reports the Voth kept to themselves
[12:21] Silkie Dagger: I believe this is my first contact with the Voth.
[12:21] Chase Quinnell: Mine as well, Silkie.
[12:21] michaels Toshi: well, it might not be official. How do we know the person in charge was speaking to us?
[12:22] Chase Quinnell: He mentioned a Minister Odala
[12:22] Chase Quinnell: I think that's the one in charge.
[12:22] Chase Quinnell: Hail Professor Gegan.
[12:22] Silkie Dagger: Aye, Sir
[12:22] michaels Toshi: yeah but does the minister give approval of what he's doing?
[12:22] Silkie Dagger: Hail open
[12:22] Gegan: =A= Gegan here, I see you'ved arrived safely. =A=
[12:23] Chase Quinnell: Gegan, why is it that Minister Odala is not the one contacting us?
[12:24] michaels Toshi: i don't know if we should go against the minister. so we need to know you're acting with authorization
[12:25] Gegan: =A=Well.....no i don't have authorization to even touch the comm panel, but we NEED your help Redeemer. the city ship has lost a lot of it's crew and the minister is ignoring the threat or the cure =A=
[12:26] Chase Quinnell: I see... we'll do what we can, but it may take some time I'm afraid.
[12:26] You: Quinnell out.
[12:26] Silkie Dagger closes the channel.
[12:26] michaels Toshi: hmmmm i think if we help them we need to do so without letting the minister know
[12:26] michaels Toshi: or they'll capture us, like they did voyager
[12:26] Chase Quinnell: Possibly
[12:27] Chase Quinnell: I do agree though, we don't want to alert the minister to our intentions
[12:28] Silkie Dagger: Why would the minister ignore a threat that was decimating their populace?
[12:28] Chase Quinnell: I don't know.
[12:28] michaels Toshi: because it would take human DNA
[12:28] michaels Toshi: they deny our link to them
[12:28] michaels Toshi: or she rather
[12:28] Silkie Dagger: So it is a case of pride?
[12:28] michaels Toshi: yes
[12:29] Silkie Dagger nods
[12:29] michaels Toshi: the minister almost destroyed voyager to deny it
[12:29] Blush Babii: we can not be sure they wont try to do it again, even if we help them
[12:30] michaels Toshi: hmmm he seemed desperate but i agree it's best to be wary
[12:30] Chase Quinnell: Jeffery, I understand you know a bit of medical knowledge.. maybe you could work on a cure?
[12:30] Jeffery Biedermann: Aye sir i do
[12:31] Chase Quinnell: Michaels, I want you to keep your CONN unit handy in-case of an attack.
[12:32] Chase Quinnell: If you detect even a hint of trouble, you better be at that Tactical Station before you can even say the word "phaser"
[12:32] Silkie Dagger smiles
[12:32] michaels Toshi: i'm not the kind of person to disagree with getting to the guns
[12:33] Blush Babii: Sir i am working on random maneuvers patterns just in case we ll need it
[12:33] Chase Quinnell: Good.
[12:34] Chase Quinnell: Ops and Engineering, see if you can't find a way to dampen any attempt to beam our vessel into the belly of the city ship.
[12:34] michaels Toshi: be prepared their transporters can beam an entire ship inside
[12:34] Jeffery Biedermann: aye sir, getting right on that
[12:34] Silkie Dagger: Aye, Sir
[12:34] Chase Quinnell: Quinnell to sickbay, any luck on the cure?
[12:34] Medical Officer: =A= No sir, we're not having any luck. =A=
[12:37] Jeffery Biedermann: Sir, i am working on an energy Disruption, maybe that will cause them to not be able to Transport the whole ship.
[12:37] Jeffery Biedermann: Silkie, sending you my data
[12:38] Chase Quinnell: Good work Jeffery.
[12:38] Chase Quinnell: Welcome to the bridge, Lt Dagger.
[12:38] Silkie Dagger: Aye, thank you, Mr. Biedermann.
[12:39] Silkie Dagger inputs the data into the console.
[12:39] Jeffery Biedermann: Silkie, if anything needs tweaked in that data, go ahead and make the right changes.
[12:40] Silkie Dagger: I admit I'm concerned that their sensors will detect us sooner or later. Most likely sooner.
[12:40] michaels Toshi: what if we cut power to some of our luxuries?
[12:40] Jeffery Biedermann: I could make us look like a sensor ghost to them.
[12:41] Chase Quinnell: Do it.
[12:41] Jeffery Biedermann: but that would require cutting power to most of the ship.
[12:41] Silkie Dagger: Both ideas seem feasible to me if it will help us avoid conflict.
[12:41] Jeffery Biedermann: aye sir
[12:42] Jeffery Biedermann taps his console, shutting down lighting systems, some lifts, nonvitle systems.
[12:42] Jeffery Biedermann: okay sir, starting program ghost01
[12:44] Jeffery Biedermann: okay sir, we now look like a sensor glitch to them if they are
looking for anything.
[12:44] Chase Quinnell: Alright, perfect.
[12:44] Chase Quinnell: Lt Dagger, how's the cure coming?
[12:45] Nailer Dagger: We are getting closer Sir need a bit more time to run simulations
[12:47] Silkie Dagger: Sir.. receiving a hail from the city ship.
[12:47] Chase Quinnell: Is it Gegan?
[12:47] Silkie Dagger: No, sir, it is not.
[12:47] Chase Quinnell: darn... put it onscreen.
[12:47] Silkie Dagger: Onscreen
[12:47] michaels Toshi gets to tactical just incase
[12:47] Chase Quinnell: ::A female Voth appears on the view screen::
[12:48] Blush Babii gets ready for her random maneuvers
[12:48] Odala: =A= I am Minister Odala. What is your reason for being here? =A=
[12:49] Chase Quinnell: We are here on a mission of science. We're just studying the nebulae in the area.
[12:49] Jeffery Biedermann wonders how they found us
[12:49] Nailer Dagger: Captain?
[12:49] Odala: =A= There is nothing of interest in those nebulae... I do not accept your reason. =A=
[12:50] Silkie Dagger: The channel was cut, Sir.
[12:50] Jeffery Biedermann turns on lights
[12:50] Chase Quinnell grunts
[12:50] Chase Quinnell: What is it, Nailer?
[12:50] Nailer Dagger: We have found the key to the DNA formula we are attempting to reproduce a large enough supply
[12:50] Chase Quinnell: Good, keep at it.
[12:50] Chase Quinnell: Shields up, go to yellow alert.
[12:50] michaels Toshi: are sir, shields up, yellow alert
[12:52] Jeffery Biedermann: sir, i don't think they can see us. My Sensor ghost program must be working better then i thought.
[12:52] ::the city ship fires on the Redeemer with a low yield hit::
[12:52] michaels Toshi: whoa
[12:53] You: Obviously it's not, Jeff.
[12:53] Jeffery Biedermann: spoke too soon.
[12:53] Jeffery Biedermann: cutting program sir
[12:53] Jeffery Biedermann: lighting systems back online
[12:53] michaels Toshi: shields at 95% i's hate to see high yield
[12:53] Chase Quinnell: Big ships don't always have big guns...
[12:53] Chase Quinnell: I don't want to hurt any of those Voth un-necessarily.
[12:53] michaels Toshi: no, but big transporters...maybe
[12:54] You: Helm, take evasive maneuvers
[12:54] Blush Babii: Aye Sir
[12:54] Blush Babii starts taking evasive maneuvers
[12:57] Chase Quinnell: I think that shot was a warning
[12:57] Chase Quinnell: They seem to be calm right now..
[12:57] michaels Toshi: doesn't that mean we should kinda leg it?
[12:57] Silkie Dagger: Then we do not want to provoke them.
[12:57] Nailer Dagger: Captain... Sickbay reports the cure is ready.
[12:58] Chase Quinnell: Helm, pull us away from the city ship, lets give them breathing room.
[12:58] Blush Babii: Aye Sir
[12:58] Chase Quinnell: Good, now we need to administer the cure somehow..
[12:58] michaels Toshi: what if we let them beam us into the ship and released it from within?
[12:58] Chase Quinnell: Perhaps we could send it through their ventilation system?
[12:58] Jeffery Biedermann: sir, detecting mass power build up from the city ship
[12:58] Blush Babii maneuvers the ship
[12:59] Chase Quinnell: One problem with that Michaels...
[12:59] Chase Quinnell: What kind of build up?
[12:59] Jeffery Biedermann: sir, it could very well be their transporter system.
[12:59] Chase Quinnell: Crap
[13:00] Chase Quinnell: Michaels, looks like we get to test your theory whether we want to or not
[13:00] michaels Toshi: maybe route it through the bussard collectors?
[13:00] michaels Toshi: the cure i mean
[13:00] michaels Toshi: as a gas
[13:00] michaels Toshi: if it can be used as a gas?
[13:00] Jeffery Biedermann: shall i start the energy Disruption now sir?
[13:01] Chase Quinnell: Perhaps we can try that Michaels, but wouldn't we need to be inside?
[13:01] michaels Toshi: yup
[13:01] Chase Quinnell: Jeff, we'll have to be beamed aboard that ship before we can cure them
[13:01] michaels Toshi: one we've cured them maybe they'd consider not destroying us
[13:02] Jeffery Biedermann: that power build up from the city ship is reaching 100%
[13:03] Chase Quinnell: Maybe.. but Minister Odala doesn't seem to be one who would simply forget her beloved doctrine.
[13:03] Nailer Dagger: Captain we have 500 spay doses ready and the instructions to make more and how to administer the drug
[13:03] michaels Toshi: i'm guessing this will feel weird
[13:03] Silkie Dagger: I suppose we shall get a good look at the inside of the belly of the beast.
[13:03] Chase Quinnell: Perfect Nailer.
[13:03] Chase Quinnell: I suppose we shall, Silkie
[13:03] michaels Toshi holds onto his stomach
[13:03] Nailer Dagger: sickbay is packing it in medical totes for transport as we speak
[13:03] ::The city ship's transporter energizes::
[13:04] michaels Toshi feels sick
[13:04] Jeffery Biedermann: sir i am detecting 5 power sources locked onto the ship.
[13:04] michaels Toshi: not good
[13:05] Chase Quinnell: What kind of power sources?
[13:05] Chase Quinnell: Guns?
[13:05] Nailer Dagger: It's ready Captain
[13:05] Jeffery Biedermann: Seems to be Tractor beams
[13:05] Chase Quinnell: Nailer, transport some of the cure to their ventilation units. Enough to cure 100 people.
[13:05] Jeffery Biedermann: sir the beams are flooding with power
[13:06] Chase Quinnell: Err.. is that bad?
[13:06] Jeffery Biedermann: yes sir, i think it is.
[13:06] Nailer Dagger: aye captain
[13:06] Nailer Dagger: Transport in progress
[13:06] Jeffery Biedermann: looks like they are gonna try to immobile us
[13:06] michaels Toshi: well at least we haven't had all systems dampened like voyager
[13:06] michaels Toshi: oh
[13:07] michaels Toshi: spoke too soon
[13:07] Chase Quinnell: Might wanna hurry Nailer.
[13:07] Nailer Dagger: done sir
[13:07] Jeffery Biedermann: Sir, mass power overflow on the ships shields
[13:07] michaels Toshi: hail them now?
[13:07] Nailer Dagger: The reaction should be almost instant
[13:07] michaels Toshi's console emits sparks
[13:08] Jeffery Biedermann: sir engineering has lost power
[13:08] michaels Toshi: well, shields are now non-existent
[13:08] Silkie Dagger: Ops as well.
[13:08] Nailer Dagger: Sickbay reports power drain
[13:08] Jeffery Biedermann: starting to lose systems
[13:08] Chase Quinnell sighs
[13:08] michaels Toshi's console flickers
[13:08] Jeffery Biedermann: sir
[13:08] Jeffery Biedermann: the power just stopped
[13:08] Chase Quinnell: I wonder how long it'll take before they realize we just beamed a cure into their ventilation.
[13:09] Nailer Dagger: they should know by now
[13:09] michaels Toshi: ummm well wouldn't they have to scan the patient?
[13:09] Nailer Dagger: there symptoms should be disappearing
[13:09] michaels Toshi: and people will be telling others i hope
[13:09] Jeffery Biedermann: i'm not detecting any more big power sources now.
[13:10] michaels Toshi's console returns to full power
[13:10] Silkie Dagger: Sir, the ship is hailing us.
[13:10] Chase Quinnell: onscreen
[13:10] Silkie Dagger: Aye Sir. *puts it onscreen*
[13:10] ::A Voth male appears on the viewscreen, with the Voth female no-where in sight:: [13:11] Silkie Dagger looks over at the screen.
[13:11] Choval: =A= I am Minister Choval. Minister Odala has been relieved of her rule for denying our people of a cure =A=
[13:12] Coval: =A= We apologize for any inconvenience she may have caused you. Our people are greatful for your assistance. =A=
[13:12] michaels Toshi: nice to meet you minister, congratulations on your new position
[13:12] Silkie Dagger turns her head away from the screen to hide her smile from michaels comment.
[13:13] Nailer Dagger: Sir we are transporting the medical totes at this time
[13:13] Chase Quinnell: Minister, we will send you the instructions on how to manufacture the cure along with the rest of our immediate supply. The Federation was glad it could assist.
[13:14] Jeffery Biedermann: Sir, Engineering Reports they are back to 100% power
[13:14] Coval: =A= Thank you, captain. Choval out. =A=
[13:15] ::the Voth city ship engages its transporter and beams the Redeemer back into normal space::
[13:15] michaels Toshi feels sick again
[13:15] michaels Toshi: i wish they didn't do that
[13:15] michaels Toshi: or atleast give me warning...
[13:15] michaels Toshi: so i can grab a bucket
[13:15] Silkie Dagger smiles, "It appears we have been .. burped."
[13:16] Chase Quinnell: It appears so..
[13:16] Chase Quinnell smiles
