Serala: Commander, I agree with Danara…


Williams: Good find, please forward it to Raga and his team. I need to take care of a few things first. Lieutenant Serala, follow me please.


:: Serala secured her station and followed Williams to the Captain’s Ready Room. The second the doors shut behind her, the First Officer spun around to face her. ::

(( Captain's Ready Room, Deck 1, USS Atlantis ))

Williams: I think it’s time we change our acces codes. Revoke all the old ones and issue new ones to the senior staff. If this is an inside job i want to keep control of the ship to a minimal group. If people want a reason for it tell them it’s just a precaution.


Serala: Agreed. I was about to make the same suggestion. But why did you call me in here?


Williams: I will need a second officer to confirm this change.


Williams: =/\= Computer, initiate Foothold protocol 01 and confirm Captain Brell is not onboard. Autorisation O3, Alpha, 1,9,8,5,orange. =/\=


Computer: =/\= Confirmation required. =/\=


Williams: No time to drag Raga in here. You should have clearance as well.


Serala: Understood and agreed. :: taps her commbadge :: =/\= Computer. Recognize, Serala, Lieutenant. Confirm initiate Foothold Protocol 01 and confirm Captain Brell in not onboard. Authorization, Serala ehrie hwi lhi fve lli dif.  Execute. =/\=


Computer: =/\= Authorization confirmed. Executing Foothold Protocol 01. =/\=


Williams: Good, that settles that. Only your and my security code will still work. The others will have to get to you for a new one.  Please hand them out ASAP. Start with the bridge, then head over to Raga and engineering.


Serala: Aye, sir.


:: Sensing that the conversation was at an end, Serala turned and exited the room, returning the Tactical station. No sooner had she reactivated her station then the computer chirped and began to speak. ::

(( Tactical, Bridge, Deck 1, USS Atlantis ))  

Computer: Security notice. Captain Brell is located on Deck 10, section 14, Jefferies tube 22 Alpha juncture 5.


oO  What? Oo


Serala: Computer, how long has Captain Brell been at that location?


Computer: Captain Brell has been at that location exactly twelve point nine two seconds.


oO Knight is closest. Oo


Serala: =/\= Bridge to Lieutenant Knight. You and your team report to Deck 10, section 14 immediately. Captain Brell has been detected in Jeffries tube 22 Alpha juncture 5. =/\=


Knight: =/\= Response =/\=


Danara: Something is very strange here.  I want to say that’s highly impossible but….so far none of this makes any sense. At the moment I’d best describe it as a twilight zone.


Serala: Commander, recommend we stand down the Marine assault teams until we know more about what is going on here.


Williams: Response


Maeli: Aye, sir. Notifying fighters now. =/\= Spartan Leader, Atlantis. Disengage from attack pattern and standby for further instructions. It appears Captain Brell is back on the ship. Acknowledge. =/\=


McKnight: =/\= Atlantis, Spartan Leader. Say again your last. The captain is back on the ship? =/\=


Maeli: =/\= Affirmative, Spartan Leader. We’re standing by for confirmation, but the computer is reporting that the Captain is on the ship. =/\=


McKnight =/\= Atlantis, requesting instructions. Do we continue our mission? =/\=


Maeli: =/\= Negative, Spartan Leader. Execute holding pattern and standby for further instructions. =/\=


McKnight: =/\= Response =/\=

Maeli :: Turning to Commander Williams :: Commander, Captain McKnight is requesting instructions. Do they continue their attack or do you have other orders for them?


Williams: Response

Darkkdust: Commander, I might suggest sending a medical team down with the marines. I’m no expert on Bolian physiology, but if I’m not mistaken the Captain appears to be suffering from a massive Calcium deficiency in his bone structure. He also appears to have suffered some kind of skeletal compression while he was missing. He appears to be three centimetres shorter.


oO What is she babbling about? Oo


:: Serala turned to the internal scanners to see what the new Ops officer was talking about. Everything seemed normal to her. Then she noticed it. There were just a few minor differences. The naked eye might not have noticed them, but the sensors would have. Of course, under normal circumstances, sensors wouldn’t be used on personnel. ::


Williams/Danara: Responses


Serala: Sir, Mr. Darkkdust is correct. Internal sensors indicate minor inconsistencies in the Captain’s biological readings.


Williams: Response


Darkkdust/Danara/Maeli: Responses


Serala: =/\= Serala to Lieutenant Knight. Apprehend the Captain. We have reason to suspect he may be an imposter. =/\=


Knight: =/\= Response =/\=


Williams/Maeli/Danara/Darkkdust: Responses


Raga: =/\= Raga to Bridge. Our security sweep has been halted. My command codes won't work and we're picking up an unknown signal coming from inside Deflector Control. =/\=


Serala: =/\= Acknowledged, Commander. Foothold Protocol has been executed. You’ll need to come to the bridge for your new access codes. After you finish your current sweep, proceed to Deck 10 to assist Lieutenant Knight. The Captain appears to be back, although there is some question about that. =/\=


Raga: =/\= Wait..what? He's back? By the branch...what is going on. =/\=


Serala: =/\= Unclear at this time, Commander. The computer reported the Captain’s presence on Deck 10 approximately 5 minutes ago. I am waiting for Knight to check in. Meanwhile, internal sensors indicate that the Captain may not be the Captain. There are some inconsistencies in his biological readouts. We’ve placed the Marine assault on hold pending the verification of the Captain’s return. Proceed as you were, but join with the Lieutenant as soon as you can. =/\=


Raga: =/\= As soon as I can. I think we may have found something. =/\=


Williams: =/\= response =/\=


Raga: =/\= We found a device attached to the interior of the deflector control console. I'd advise someone from Intelligence to come take a look. I'm sure Valin would love to know his ship was tampered with too. Raga out. =/\=
