ISR -- Lotus
Written by Courtney Lambert
A ship called the Lotus was caught in a space anomaly caused by a thermal explosion. They are now far away from home and trying to make their way to familiar space.
The anomaly that pulled their ship also pulled Cervius, an Earther, out of his time and into another dimension where the Lotus is.
There is a ship with golden adornments and lines in the distance as the shuttle docks
into the Lotus in the station. The ship is kilometers longer than the Lotus.
They dock into the Lotus which is still docked up.
Valmara and Osias are both hailed. Julianne calls them to the ready room. Valmara
states that they are probably going to be in trouble, and Osias agrees.
Julianne is at the door when they enter and gestures them inside with a very unexpressive
look. They sit down, Osias' ears folding back. Julianne sits down and starts playing
her pen. She then proceeds to question Valmara and Osias on what happened. She confines
them to the ship for a week and ordered them to arrange for Belial's funeral.
As Valmara leaves the ready room, she sees a Felhammer (Adrogenes) and a Felhammer-like
Zeynerx meets these two and is shown his new body. He goes into the new body.
Usi is in medical and scans for any changes. He talks to Osias and introduces him to his
old room. Usi makes him a new code to allow him access to his room again. Apparently,
something had changed for Usi. He says he had talked to Ieye in the past. Osias decides
to re-acclimate to his room.
Septum does his own thing. Nyx is talking with Julianne about the two new crew members,
about situation and everything else. They agree to undock. Julianne tells everyone to
get to their posts or return the ship.
Julianne goes to the bridge and tells Usi she wants to talk to him about some issues.
She calls Zeynerx to the bridge. His new body throws Julianne off. His new body is
bigger than his old one. The pilot's chair bends underneath Zeynerx's weight. They
all agree that they might need to reinforce the chair. They set course for home.
Nyx goes down to upgrade her armor. She interacts with the Felhammer. She then goes
to the bar and has her usual.
Valmara goes to the bar as well after her shift. She joins Nyx. She asks Owen for a
lighter Prakkum drink and ten olives which she has never had before. She does not like
them at all. Nyx does charisma on Valmara and sowly seductively eats one of the olives.
Owen and Valmara look at Nyx and fall under her spell. She then tells them that she will
talk to them later and leaves.
Valmara stays and continues to drink. The two Felhammer go to the bar. They trade Owen
the Zakon mead and the their own Forgeborn liquor. Then Valmara leaves.
They each try to break Belial's record. The two Felhammer are getting drunk. Valmara
returns to the bar out of curiosity and the desire to not leave Owen alone (there are
others in the area). She is asked to join in the two Felhammer's fun. She agrees to,
after a while. The Felhammer get very far. The one gets drunk and damages the door because
he is upset. Adrogenes downed 15 of the mead and Caderan downed 20.
Valmara leaves and goes to her room.
Julianne is on the bridge. Cervius tells Julianne that he wants to join Kyron's ship
and join the Felhammer early. Julianne supposes that he can give them a try and speaks
of her suprise that they are recruiting early.
They warp off and then get pulled out of warp by the Felhammer ship. They hail the
Lotus and take Cervius.
They see a ship that only has one life-sign on it. They decide to go visit the ship.
Julianne orders Valmara to assist the Felhammer brothers.
The shuttle goes in. The main cannon gets tractor-beamed toward the ship. The shuttle
attaches to the outside of the ship. They enter the shuttle, the other half of the ship is
peeled off and they are in suits. It looks like a cannon blast took the ship out. There
is a smaller ship attached to the vessel by hooks and chains. They suppose that it is
where the life sign is from.
They see that the ship seems to be scarred by enery-based weaponry that they cannot
identify. They approach the smaller ship.
On the ship, the cannon is partly in the ship, being the size of it is about the size
of the Lotus. The components are degraded from what Valmara can see. The Two brothers
see that it is a Genoan. He informs the captain who tells him to the tell the other.
The two agree that the ship needs to be built bigger in order to fit the gun and decide
that to do so that they would need to stay longer. They discover it is a warship and
tell Valmara to tell Julianne that. Adrogenes contacts someone. They decide to take it
apart and use the parts for the ship.
Meanwhile, Usi jumps onto one side of the ship. The other two go to the door. Nyx knocks.
There is no answer. They then try to open the door. They find a panel.
.....Corruption in transcript.....
The people on the ship are in contact with a Protian-like creature. Usi asks the Protian
questians. Usi asks if they want to board the ship, and the Protian says that if they value
their lives that they would walk away. She refuses to tell her name. Usi perceives that
the Protian is damaged, armor is not intact and conduits are leaking.
Usi's words seem unconvincing to the Protian who insists to stay where she is. Nyx
suggests that she tries. She approaches the Protian and says that the destruction
of the air support is her fault and that if she will trust them that she will be much safer
on their vessel than the one she is on.
The Protian comes out of hiding a little bit, but does not take Nyx's hand. Usi checks how much oxygen is in the vessel. He informs the rest that the oxygen is gone and they theirs is getting low. Nyx takes the hand of the Protian and informs Julianne to beam out four. She says that the
shuttle can be remotely returned. Usi asks to take her to med bay. The Protian growls at
Usi. Nyx offers to accompany her to the med bay. Osias sees her and is immediately
interested in her. He tries to flirt with the Protian who begins to hide behind Nyx and as he
continues to back toawrd the door. Osias walks away.
Talos appears and requests everyone to leave. They do. Osias being as flirty as ever.
Talos gets the new Protian to give her name Ubuntu of the house of Diso (*records were
from Talos's med sheet*). He scans her and finds her skull is fractured. He is shocked.
She explains she was tortured for months. Her spine is also damaged. He catalogs 35
injuries and most are broken bones. He tries to give out a medi-patch and medi-pen. She
growls at him. She tries to get away, but Talos successfully administers the medi-pen. Talos
informs her that in 35 hours she will be healed.
She requests to be put off anywhere. Talos checks her history in the data base. Valmara
goes into the med bay and asks for depression meds. Valmara takes it, tries to introduce herself to
the Protian. She is unsuccessful and goes into her room, locks the door, and puts the
full dose into her. It has no effect. She collapses on her bed and just forms things
with her mind and destroys them.
Androgenes then goes to the bar again and Owen greets him that he will run him dry and
doesn't get paid enough. Androgenes gives him credits. Owen complains that he cannot spend
it anywhere. The Felhammers drink and Zeynerx is invited to join them. Usi and Osias join.
Talos suggests to the new Protian that she explore the ship. She ends up in the bar where
everyone else (Nyx is also there but aside). Owen greets the Protian only to be greeted with a growl.
He bares his teeth back at him. She smirks at him. Owen asks what she wants. Caderan
comes in. The new Protian joins Nyx when she spots him. Androgenes warns Caderan to
keep their eyes on her.
Osias tells Usi that he wants to talk to the Protian again. He advises him not to.
Osias slides out a chair where Nyx and the Protian are seated. He tries to flirt with
Valmara attempts to sneak into the corner and grabs some food and a drink. Everyone notices.
Androgenes sees her and prods her mind. She refuses. He prods again. She ends up letting
him speak to her mentally and he asks what is troubling her. She explains what is troubling her
and he ends up telling her that Belial's death and her father's were not her fault and
she mustn't grieve over them.
Owen sees her and leaves the bar. He doesn't lose his height as he leaves. He goes toward the
Prakkum and asks her what is wrong. She explains and he takes her medicine and crushes it, he having noticed
that it was empty.
The new Protian dumps her beverage over Osias' head and he leaves. Androgenes asks her questions, seeking her
intentions which he comes away from unclear.
People file out and only Androgenes, Usi, and the new Protian remain. Usi asks for round
two and gets drunk. Androgenes questions Owen about knowledge about certain houses and
for any contacts.
..... Corrupted data....
Valmara is drunk. (Apparently Usi got his ear flicked by the Protian, and Osias got
hurt by it). Androgenes then tries to recompete with his brother's score. Osias
leaves and finds Usi passed out in the hallway. He then drags Usi away.
Only Nyx, Owen, and Valmara are in the mess hall. Nyx decides to seduce Owen and
succeeds. Stuff happened.
