SAC Alert The Discovery's origins

Post by sa_admin on Mon 31 May 2010 - 3:03

Seven months after Silver Arrows' flagship i>Discovery/i> returned from what used to be called unknown regions, the SAC is publishing its first full public report of the battleship's nav computer analysis including several audio logs and technical readouts.

The Beginning of the Journey

Silver Arrows Captain Sam Thomas and his crew departed from Manhattan on June 24th, 827AS at 0700 hours for an assignment in the Dom'Kavash territory in the Altair sector. Their mission was to study the intreging Dom'Kavash Hypergate in the Menton system. The i>Discovery/i> launched from the SAC complex 07A with one escort wing (ALPHA) on board and a selected group of scientists from the houses of Sirius and the Order.

The ship reached the Altair Sector around 2300 hours the same day. Captain Thomas raised the yellow alert status as the i>Discovery/i> entered the Gurm system. The ship then began its journey into hell...


The Anomaly

June 25th, 827AS - Pretoria System
0101 Hours - The ship's nav computer was reading several unusual distant contacts but no direct encounters of any kind when cruising the Pretoria system. Communications between the Bridge and the Astrometrics lab were recorded by the ship's logging systems :

Bridge> You say the contacts we are reading on the scanners jump from a place to another ?

Astrometrics> Affirmative Captain. Its seems the alien ships are shifting from place to place, like if they were opening jump holes on purpose on their ships to travel to another location instantly.

Bridge> Does this mean they could all spawn in our face in a second Lieutenant ?

Astrometrics> I'm afraid so Captain. There is no indication they can't do that. However, they seem to be randomly moving for now. It looks like they are testing their technology but not controlling it yet. And they don't seem to have spotted us yet.

Bridge> Can we predict where they spawn when they shift position ?

Astrometrics> Negative Sir, we cannot follow their trail into subspace to plan their reappearance location. Only the GMG hyperscanner could do that.

Bridge> Keep me posted if anything changes, thank you, Captain out-


0108 Hours - Few minutes later the ship was strongly shaken. Captain Thomas raised red alert and the Astrometrics lab hailed on the comm :

Astrometrics> Astrometrics lab to Bridge. Looks like we shifted position ourselves, we are now in sector 7E.

Brige> How Lieutenant ?

Astrometrics> I think the DK are trying their technology on us, Sir. Readings indicate an anomaly just closed behind us. They probably spotted the ship and turned her into a lab rat.

ALARM BEEPING

Brige> Report !

Bridge Weapons Console> Sir, 4 alien motherships coming our way, six o'clock!

Bridge> Charge weapons, rear shields to maximum. This is the Captain. All hands to battle stations.

ALPHA_TWO> TANGO here Sir. Alpha Wing ready to launch, docking bay 1.

Bridge> You're cleared to launch ALPHA.

Astrometrics> Captain, a new singularity is forming ahead of us we'll shift position again !

Bridge> Helm, turn that ship around ! I don't want to see where their trying to take us this time...

Bridge Helm Console> Those DK motherships are behind us Sir, we cannot turn around without getting blown to dust.

SHIP HULL STRECHING AND CRACKING

Engineering> Bridge several decks are about to lose integrity, the ship is being torn apart !

Astrometrics> We are reading intense gravitationnal energy from the jump hole, whatever there is on the other side of this wormhole Sir, its pulling us in!

Bridge> Can we do anything to get out of here ?

Bridge Helm Console> No Sir, the attraction is too strong !

Bridge> Open a public channel. This is Captain Sam Thomas of the Silver Arrows flagship i>Discovery/i> to anyone who can hear us. This is an emergency call, we've been embushed by Dom'Kavash motherships and are now being pulled towards an unknown jump hole emitting strong gravitationnal energy. We cannot determine output location, prepare to send search and rescue if no contact issued in 20 minutes. Last know location, Pretoria System, Sector 7E.

ALPHA_TWO> Alpha_Three and Alpha_Four dissapeared into the jump hole, our fighters cannot break free of this thing either !

Bridge> Captain Thomas to all crew members, prepare to suffer severe turbulence and possible impact !


0109 Hours - After Captain Thomas issued his warning, the ship entered the jump hole and dissapeared from known space...

SAC Alert The Discovery's Origins - Part 2

Post by sa_admin on Thu 22 Jul 2010 - 16:48

The Black Hole

June 25th 827AS - Unknown location.
01010 - After being pulled into the wormhole, the Discovery and its Alpha Wing escort ships reappeared in an even more unfamiliar location than DK space. Commander Nicolas Salvador Caņones was the first to report what he saw from his cockpit.

<ALPHA_TWO>TANGO to Discovery. Are you seeing this Captain ? Its looks like we respawned in an ocean ! There is fluid all around us.

<Bridge>All stop. Yes i saw that Commander, are you guys alright ?

<ALPHA_TWO>We are shaken Sir but all 6 fighters in one piece.

<Bridge>Get back on board then. Astrometics, report on whats going on.

<Astrometrics>Computer indicates that the fluid around us is nothing compared to an ocean Captain. Long range scans indicate we are surrounded by spacial objects : nebulas, stars, debris. We are still in space there is no doubt about that.

<Bridge>Is this fluidic space a threat ?

<Astrometrics>We are reading strong radiation Sir but its not coming from the matter around us but from a black hole in Sector D5.

<Brige>What ? Are you saying we're fying right next to a black hole ? Should we not be crushed by its gravity now ?

<Engineering>Engineering here. We confirm that the stress on the hull is greater than normal but still far less elevated than before we jumped through the anomaly. The ship seems to be standing it pretty well, integrity is holding at 98%. Also, weapons are still online and engine seems to be in order. We should be able to fly and fight in this environment.

<Bridge>Thanks Commander. Asrtometrics why is the black hole not tearing the ship apart ?

<Astrometrics>We believe the fluidic space is absorbing the black hole's gravity, allowing us and... 3 alien structures to remain intact.

<Bridge>Alien structures ? What kind ?

<Astrometrics>Signature is ressembling DK but the organic matter of these objects is reading more than fifteen thousands years old. It precedes any premitive DK artifact we have found in Sirius or Altair until now. Also those structures seem to be harvesting energy from the black hole.

<Bridge>Are they defense weapons ?

<Astrometrics>Negative. The energy frequency emmitted by these structures are similar, yet thousands of time stronger, to Nomads Hypergates. Its possible it may be a very advanced gate system linking the fartest reaches of this galaxy or possibly linking to other galaxies.

<Bridge>You're saying the DK empire could stretch to other galaxies ? This is bad news.

<Astrometrics>Sir, nav computer just finished calculating our position with star pattern estimations. It took longer than usual because it was having a really hard time to place us on the map.

<Bridge>Are we still in Altair ?

<Astrometrics>No Sir.

<Bridge>Sirius ?

<Astrometrics>No Sir.

<Bridge>Tell me we are still in our galaxy !

<Astrometrics>Well yes Sir. We are still in the Milky Way, but nav computer indicates we are in the core of our galaxy. More than fifty parsecs from our previous location. Star date calculation indicate we are still the same day we were back in Altair. In short, we made half the diameter of the galaxy in less than a day Sir. More time precision is not available due to the distance of our reference points in space.

<Bridge>Is there a way to go back to where we came from ?

<Astrometrics>The wormhole appears to have remained open after we jumped. Its stable enough. We are sending a recon drone.

The Discovery's hangar bay opened and an unmanned vessel left towards the jump hole. When it disappeared, a loud noise resonated instantly throughout the battleship.

<Hangar Bay 1>TANGO here, the drone is back in the hangar bay.

<Bridge> What you mean back in the bay ?

<Hangar Bay 1>It suddenly crashed on the bay floor Sir. GUNS is wounded and two Deimos are wrecked.

<Astrometrics>The drone respawned inside the docking bay just after entering the jump hole Captain. The anomaly is leading nowhere but on our position. The black hole gravity must be bending the worm hole back to its origin. In short, its not a way back Sir.

<Bridge>And the alien gates ? Any chance we could use them ?

<Engineering>Negative, we cannot interface our systems with the gates controls. Its far too advanced for our knowledge and take into account too many variable for a single human computer.

<Bridge>*Sight* Helm, program full system grid search for anything else that could help us find a way out of here.

<Bridge helm Console>Yes Sir.

<Bridge>This is the Captain to all crew members. General meeting in Hangar Bay 2 immediately.

The Captain briefed his crew in the following minutes. It was certainly a shock amongst the troops when Captain Thomas explained the situation. However, the Silver Arrows are brave and they all united immediately to find solutions to their problems. Each division started preparing the ship for a trip that would take more than a day to home...
