((OOC: Breaking this up into two parts again because it got REALLY long!))

 

Wong: =/\= Reade, I will literally buy you a whole keg of beer right now for you to NOT let them do that! =/\=

 

Kivik: ::Attempting some humour:: =/\= Scotty’s antics are enough as is, Lieutenant. How about a nice holosuite gift card or something instead? Or flowers? Scotty, you like flowers, right? =/\=

 

Reade: =/\= Response =/\=

 

Wong: =/\= Okay. Looks like we’re going to need to be quick and I have an idea. Mister Carcetti, Mister Thompkins, can you come here for a moment please? We’re going to need to hitch a ride. If we magnetize ourselves to the outside of your Work Bee and hold on, we should be able to get to the Stellae quickly.=/\=

 

Thompkins: =/\= Sure thing. Jones, you ready? =/\=

 

The other workbee had turned around and was approaching the group.

 

Jones: =/\= All aboard! =/\=

 

Reade: =/\= Response =/\=

 

Wong: =/\=Everyone, grab your favourite Work Bee and let’s head on out!=/\=

 

Once the officers had grabbed a hold of the vehicles, Thompkins turned the craft back around to continue into the shaft.

 

Thompkins: =/\= Please keep your hands or boots on the bees at all times until we come to a complete stop. =/\=

 

They made their way gently into the shaft, and soon enough, a slight purple glow reflecting from the workbee's lights signaled they'd arrived.

 

Iko: =/\= Slow down, we can't startle the little guy. =/\=

 

Jones and Henry brought their craft to a stop as told while the other Starfleet officers examined the situation.

 

Wong: =/\=I don’t know about little by our standards. But I do believe that we should avoid sudden movements. Something this big can crush someone. Easily.=/\=

 

Reade/Ariadust: =/\= Responses? =/\=

 

Kivik: =/\= Ensign Kivik to Amity Outpost. Lieutenant Wong, Ensign Iko, and myself have successfully found our way to the Angel - with some much-appreciated help from the miners. It appears to be a juvenile that wandered off from the others. Fortunately, while it appears to be a bit startled, it is otherwise unharmed. We’re going to make sure it’s not caught in any rigging and then attempt to beam it safely out again. From there, it should be able to reunite with its parents. =/\=

 

Amity Team: =/\= Responses? =/\=

 

One of the Starfleet officers had gotten close to the animal.

 

Iko: =/\= Shhh, you're gonna be alright, ok? yes, that's it. that's it. now, scooch over so Dr wong can let you out. that's it. you're doing a very good job. shhh.... =/\=

 

Kivik: Bec… What… What are you…? ::Realizing ne needed to close comms with the team aboard Amity before it became clear what was happening:: =/\= Understood! I’ll keep you all apprised of our progress! Kivik out! =/\=

 

Ikaia had already magnetized his boots and started scrambling up the wall to get to the first cables. He pulled his laser scalpel from his pocket and started cutting the first one he came across.

 

Wong: =/\=Ensign Iko, what on Earth are you doing? I understand the need for bedside manner but I don’t think it’s wise to be standing where you are. The Stellae could bolt if we aren’t careful!=/\=

 

Reade/Ariadust: =/\= Responses? =/\=

 

Iko: =/\= Ccotty got some plasma out for you. That's it. come on, closer to the wall... =/\=

 

Kivik: =/\= What are you doing? ::With a panicked look to Wong:: We don’t know if it’s safe to touch the Stellae - for it or for us. =/\=

 

The science officer quickly got to work getting the transport pattern enhancers ready.

 

Thompkins: =/\= I wouldn't get so close if I were you... those things can have a mean kick when startled. =/\=

 

Ikaia cut the first cable. The next one required climbing over the Stellae. It helped that they were squishy enough to be held on to. He carefully moved his hands over the creature before gently grabbing on and climbing up to slice the next cable.

 

Wong: =/\=Unfortunately, we’re going to have to do SOME touching in order to get them loose. Sometimes risk really IS our business. =/\=

 

Where has he heard THAT ONE today? 

 

Ariadust: =/\= Acknowledged. =/\=

 

Reade: =/\= Responses? =/\=

 

With the transport enhancers coming online, the Starfleet officers conferred with one another.

 

Iko: =/\= Almost done Doctor? =/\=

 

Ikaia wondered if poor Iko was starting to panic. This was a dangerous situation they were all in. He sliced through the second cable and made his way to a third.

 

Wong: =/\=It’s okay, Ensign. We’re going to have this all done and cared for before you know it.=/\=

 

Iko: =/\= Very good. now... ::realising what she was doing:: someone else give orders because I'm only an ensign. =/\=

 

oODid she forget that I’M the lieutenant here?Oo

 

He chalked it up to anxiety. 

 

Kivik: =/\= Ensign, Lieutenant… I need another minute to finish installing the pattern enhancers. Once they’re locked in, Scotty can beam the creature out of the conduit safely. You two will need to step back so you don’t baffle the enhancers. =/\=

 

Wong: =/\=I’ve got one last cable to cut. I’ll hold off slicing until you’re done, Kivik. That should buy some time.=/\=

 

Reade: =/\= Responses? =/\=

 

The science officer placed and activated the last enhancer.

 

Kivik: =/\= ::To Reade:: I’m getting a good reading here, Scotty. How’s it look on your end? Ready to beam out an Angel? =/\=

 

Reade: Response

 

Kivik: =/\= ::To Wong:: Lieutenant, we’re ready. Prepare to cut the last cable. ::To Iko:: Bec, you might want to step back. =/\=

 

Wong: =/\=I hear you. Cutting the last cable now. Everyone get ready to run!=/\=

 

This put Ikaia firmly in the danger zone. If he wasn’t quick enough, he could end up crushed against a conduit wall. No amount of Klingon durability was going to help him survive that!

 

Iko: ::pushing herself backwards:: will do. 

 

Ariadust: =/\= Standing by. =/\=

 

Reade: =/\= Responses? =/\=

 

When the last cable was cut, it suddenly snapped, thrashing through the shaft and slicing across anything in its path--which included Jones' workbee, sending it crashing into the side of the shaft.

 

Kivik: =/\= Now, Scotty! =/\=

 

Iko: ::speaking really fast:: What- what can I do to help I-

 

Ikaia jumped off as soon as the last cable was cut. The creature thrashed about as if Madame Pele herself was chasing them. Just when he thought he was clear, he saw a fin coming straight towards him.

 

Wong: =/\=Nononononono---GAH!=/\=

 

He yelped as he was smacked by the tip of a stray fin. He was sent tumbling through the air before smacking across the floor of the conduit.

 

Reade: =/\= Responses? =/\=

 

While the Starfleet officers were preoccupied with the creature, Henry quickly called into Jones' radio.

 

Thompkins: =/\= Jones! Jones, do you copy! =/\=

 

There was no answer though as the workbee spun, revealing its crushed cockpit. Jones looked badly hurt, his eyes closed and several tears in his suit.

 

Ariadust: =/\= Man down! Wong, one of the workbee pilots is severely injured! We won't have transporters for thirty seconds.=/\=

 

Thompkins: =/\= We have a medical emergency! =/\=

 

Ariadust: =/\= We're responding now. Working on emergency transport. =/\=
