:: They were now moving into visual range of Lydor V, and the new helm officer switched the main viewer to display the planet, still growing as they drew nearer. ::


Gixu: Lydor V in visual range sir. Say hello to our own piece of aquatic paradise!


Serala: Hello. :: somewhat sarcastically ::


Brell: If only we could go down to nice beach for a few hours. Our leave at the station has me wishing for a bit of fresh air.

oO At least it's not a whole moon of ice. Oo

Gixu: response

::The tubrolift doors slid open and Doctor Cattan entered. Serala didn't know her very well since she had left shortly after Serala's first mission in the Devonian system. She did know that the Doctor and the First Officer were a couple, but that was about all she knew. ::

Brell: Doctor, welcome to the bridge.

Cattan: Response

Brell: The science station is open for you to have full access to sensors. Planetary sciences departments are all competing for the lateral array … just to warn you.

Cattan: response

:: Serala was just monitoring her new subroutine closely. It hadn't been tested in a real situation, so she was nervous still about its usefulness. She noticed the Captain approaching her and looked up. ::

Brell: Lieutenant I wanted you to keep watch on another area. ::He expanded her screen of the surrounding space to include all of the planets in the star system.:: We entered the star system from an odd location to arrive here quickly, and because we had permission to do so by the Freeworlds Science Council. However … the main route from the corridor leads to freeworlds manufacturing colony on Lydor IX.

Serala: Yes sir. I'll keep an eye on it. If they are cloaked they may be bold enough to try the main routes.

Brell: There is also some heavily controlled mining operations going on in the asteroid belt between the seventh and eighth planets. Ships are not supposed to go further into the system than there.

Serala: I understand. Also, a good place for a ship to try and sneak into the system… cloaked or not.

Brell: If illegal mining is going on here, they would have to bypass the monitoring satellites in the asteroid belt.

Serala: I'll keep a close eye on them and will even monitor for any signals that might be used to transmit codes to the satellites causing them to turn a “blind eye” to unauthorized traffic.


Brell: Response

:: Diali lazilly tapped her console, shifting The Atlantis main view screen to an image of a blue spinning orb striped like a tiger with long white clouds.::

Gixu: Lydor V in visual range sir. Say hello to our own piece of aquatic paradise!

Serala: Hello. :: somewhat sarcastically ::

Brell: If only we could go down to nice beach for a few hours. Our leave at the station has me wishing for a bit of fresh air.

Gixu: oO I like the way this captain thinks! I’m glad to see he is personable and down to earth, not like a lot of Starfleet brass.  Oo Maybe even a bit of a dip captain? The holodeck is nice and all but it just doesn’t feel like a real swim without the smell of salt on your skin afterwards. 

::The turbolift doors opened and a human woman in medical garb entered through the turbolift. It took Diali a moment before she remembered that it was Dr. Cattan, the officer she had shared a transport with on her way to the ship
::

Gixu: oO I didn’t know she was going to be sticking around as the ship’s doctor or else I definitely would have taken the time to get to know her. Maybe I’ll invite her out for a drink sometime. Oo

Brell: Doctor, welcome to the bridge.

Cattan: Response

Brell: The science station is open for you to have full access to sensors. Planetary sciences departments are all competing for the lateral array … just to warn you.

Cattan: response

Brell: Lieutenant I wanted you to keep watch on another area. ::He expanded her screen of the surrounding space to include all of the planets in the star system.:: We entered the star system from an odd location to arrive here quickly, and because we had permission to do so by the Freeworlds Science Council. However … the main route from the corridor leads to freeworlds manufacturing colony on Lydor IX.

Serala: Yes sir. I'll keep an eye on it. If they are cloaked they may be bold enough to try the main routes. 

Gixu: oO That Romulan seems sharp as a tack. Aren’t Romulans supposed to be emotional Vulcans or something? If that’s the case that Serala may be worth getting to know, I’d love to feel what her emotions are like… Oo

:: Diali glanced down at her hands. If she had been raised on Betazed she would have gotten empathic schooling since she was a child, and her abilities would doubtlessly be much greater than her current state. However, Diali was raised on Risa in an often isolated island. Her parents didn’t teach her much of the "old ways” as they used to call them, so as Diali currently was, she could only get a good feel of someone’s emotions through physical contact. It sometimes bothered Diali, but she was comforted by the thought that she’d never have to deal with other people’s strong emotions invading her mind when hers were often enough to deal with ::

Brell: There is also some heavily controlled mining operations going on in the asteroid belt between the seventh and eighth planets. Ships are not supposed to go further into the system than there.

Serala: I understand. Also, a good place for a ship to try and sneak into the system… cloaked or not.

Brell: If illegal mining is going on here, they would have to bypass the monitoring satellites in the asteroid belt.

Serala: I'll keep a close eye on them and will even monitor for any signals that might be used to transmit codes to the satellites causing them to turn a “blind eye” to unauthorized traffic.

Brell: Response

:: Still turned around, Diali’s console chirped quietly at her, announcing that they had entered the planet’s gravity well. She tapped the console a few more times, flaring the front impulse engines just a few times to take off some of the extra speed that the impatient Diali had given them on their entry. By the end of the last impulse burst The Atlantis hung above the planet in a perfect geo-synchronous orbit, maybe two hundred or so meters away from the Freeworld science vessel, exactly they had planned ::

:: One her work was complete, the ship placed within centimetre accuracy of their coordinates, Diali let out a small sigh of satisfaction and crossed her arms behind her head. The only thing she liked more than flying the ship, was knowing that her job was complete and other than systems monitoring there wouldn’t be much for her to do except practice her meditative breathing and watch the clouds and light dance across the surface of the planet.::
