OOC: Due to the captain wanting to get us to the end, she authorized me
to move the plot forward as you will see in this sim and the one
(( Saloon - Reverie Rock ))
Nugra: So...Now what?
It was a straightforward and honest question. The Gorn had an idea what
was going on, but now how to proceed in a world that was not even
really was hard to grasp. ::
Faranfey: I sacrifice myself for the crew. Lucky needs the parasites off him. We just need to figure out how to utilize it.
Instinctively, Nugra chose that it was not her call as he was her body
guard and if he was still alive, there was no way he was going to let
her just sacrifice herself. The Gorn already decided what he was going
to say and if she didn't listen, how to disable her. ::
Nugra: No, you will not, Ma'am.
Her icy eyes turned on him and he kept his locked on to her refusing to
back down. It was her life and loosing her would be a failure to him.
One he could not live with. ::
Faranfey: It's my responsibility to protect the crew, and I think I'll be able to hold them long enough to be effective...
Erm...not quite! My plan, Captain, is to try and bridge the world
between the corporeal and the non-corporal. Lure the creatures somewhere
they will be vulnerable.
Nugra: What is the point of that?
Kaji: response, if any.
Questions later please we don't have much time. Lucky will slowly
release his grip on his captives - letting the crew go one at a time. As
the parasite's world shrinks they will focus more and more on the
Captain to feed on...because she'll be the only dish on the menu. Once
the last of our people are out and Lucky has dropped his sedation field
I'll transport the Captain and store her whole pattern in the computer
core...linking it to the holodeck.
MacRae: Essentially, yes - the Captain will be the program and the parasites will be part of that program.
Nugra: This is extremely unsafe.
I don't see what other choice we have given the circumstances. It's
been done before, short-term storage of transporter patterns in their
entirety and with some system alterations the Doyle should cope with
that - for one person. Please, Colonel, if your experience of
non-corporeal memory parasites more extensive than mine then let me know
because I am open to suggestions.
Nugra: There is an easier way.
I have four life times worth of memories and that is enough to cause
the parasite to face me. From what it sounds like, Lucky only needs to
be able to get away and the parasites will be unable to lock on to him.
There is a good chance that they won't be able to latch on to me and die
in the process. They are just energy and they won't survive long
without something to feed on.
Faranfey: Nugra, do you think you can hold out? I know you have a lot of strength, but you are just as valuable as me.
Nugra: Of course.
It was a lie, but it was a better choice than Selene sacrificing
herself. It was certain they would kill her, he had a 50/50 chance. ::
Captain, I need to know who will be going into the system so I can plan
accordingly. I appreciate the noble gestures on all sides but if we
don't act soon then these things, if Lucky is correct, have the
potential to unmake history on a galactic scale. Without that past there
won't be much of a future for any of us for very long.
:: The saloon door opened and a unfamiliar Klingon and Tel-ar came in from the dusty heat. ::
Tavanah: Well, this is something interesting to walk into.
Faranfey: If you think I can protect our people in a more effective way, that gets us all out of here, I am willing to hear it.
:: Nugra looked passed them and his face became like a stone. ::
Nugra: We'll have to go with my plan. :: Pointing to the form walking up. :: The parasite is already here.
