VIDEO ▒ 001 ▒ OPEN BROADCAST ░▒▓█▛▟▛▙▚▞▗ ▘

[ There's small click as the feed begins transmitting. Nothing shows up except staticky black, but there are muffled noises in the background that faintly resolve themselves into hurried words—two voices, one male, one female, pitched low. ]

—id this—

ell is goin—


[ . . . ]

—et’s just … over with.

[ There’s a noise that might either be a sigh or a quick burst of static. ] Fine.

[ Then, a moment of terse silence before the blackness of the video suddenly gives way to reveal two figures. The man—who had been the one holding his hand over the camera—is dressed head-to-toe in black, back straight, expression deadpan and unamused; a closer look reveals a matte black, impressive-looking gun at his side. The woman standing next to him has her hair pulled back into a rough ponytail, faint smudges and oil stains on her forearms and cheeks, with a frown pulling at the corners of her mouth; she’s unarmed, but if looks could kill, you’d all be dead already. If they’re confused as to what the hell’s been happening on the ship over the past few hours, they don’t show it—beyond a shared air of tense frustration, or bone-deep exhaustion.

Their sentiments are clear: what. The fuck. Is going on.
]

This is Captain Dominic Ward of USC vessel Tranquility, en route from Alexandria. Acting Commander and Chief Engineer Devon Resnik also present for shipwide transmission.

Welcome aboard.

As much as we’d love to give you the guided tour—
[ is that sarcasm? it’s hard to tell with him ]—we can’t. This ship is big. Bigger than you probably realize. Something happened to the rest of the original crew; we’re not sure how or why, and we couldn’t tell you if we wanted to.

And before you start—no, we don’t know how you got here either. So don’t ask. [ Resnik is completely serious. She pinches the bridge of her nose, clearly unimpressed with these series of events. ] We’re trying to find out. Just... bear with us.

In the meantime, there are a few things you should know. One: we’ve been operating at a state of urgency since all essential and non-essential personnel went missing, and until very recently, we’ve been stretched a little thin. This isn’t a free ride; you’re going to have to pull your weight around here. Two: our next port of call is Tansei Station, if that means anything to you.

[ It doesn’t, does it. Moving on. ]

Three: in case it wasn’t already obvious, you are in space. For those of you who’ve been groundside your whole lives, you’ll acclimate fast enough.

Four: all passengers and crew receive an identification number while onboard this ship. The fact that you have one now demonstrates that you are, in fact, a part of this team, whether you like it or not. They also act as your ID and keycard while onboard, so I’d suggest you don’t try to get rid of it. [ Resnik holds up her arm and pushes up the uniform’s sleeve demonstratively, in case anyone hadn’t noticed their numbers yet—or needed a fresh reminder. You can’t see her particular number, but the black ink is clearly present on her forearm. ] Use them to get into your rooms and traverse the rest of the ship. If an area is sealed off, don’t try to get in. You won’t be able to, and trying to access restricted areas is just going to end up trapping you somewhere you really don’t want to be.

So don’t take any chances. [ You don’t want to get stuck somewhere without access to food or water. Trust her, she’s seen it happen before; on a ship this big, it’s only a matter of time before someone decides he wants to be an idiot and gets hurt because of it. ] Now, the tanks you woke up in—those are gravity couches, and they're meant to help you. The ship travels using a very dangerous type of spacetime technology, so long story short, every time we “jump”, you’ll need to get into a grav couch. You don’t want to find out what happens if you don’t. [ G-forces are such a bitch. ]

Our access to the ship’s mainframe is also pretty touch-and-go at this point, and we don’t know what happened to the Tranquility’s maps—we think they’ve been deleted, along with a lot of other archival data. So it’s important that we know where you are. At all times. We don’t want anybody getting lost or injured.

In other words, if you’re thinking about exploring? Don’t. [ That comms device you’re using to access this broadcast? Easily tracked, as are your tattoos, but... you don’t need to hear that right now, do you? No. The majority of you are probably smart enough to figure that out anyway. ]

You get lost, you call us.

Any other questions?

OOC NOTE ▒ Direct your questions to either Ward or Resnik by placing their name in the subject line, along with the type of return transmission (video, audio, or text). Resnik will answer technical or engineering questions, and Ward will answer just about everything else. (Fair warning: they’ll probably threadjack each other a lot.)

Comments without a specific name in the subject line will be treated as a question directed to the both of them. (They’ll... still probably threadjack each other a lot.)

So you were just awakened recently?

Where is this ship headed? What is its purpose? Will we be able to get off at this Tansei Station? What, exactly, is a "jump"? Are these... identification numbers permanent?

...Finally, what kind of tasks are you expecting us to perform?

Is the Tranquility sentient or have an AI?

[Augh. He's heard of rogue AIs before and sentient ships that went nuts. It never ends well. For the first time, he's more than just vaguely worried. Please just be technical difficulties. Please just be technical difficulties.]

That would explain why the comms are acting weird.

[ Resnik rubs a finger over her mouth. ] The ship doesn't have an AI, but it'll respond to vocal commands.

The comms seem to be acting just fine on our end. What's your issue?

Captain Ward. Is it possible to get a little clarification as to what you mean by: 'pulling our weight around here'? There are a lot of civilians in the mix.

[ Oh, perfect. She'd known this question would crop up pretty early on, but it doesn't make answering it any less of a chore. ]

It's called a jump drive. Clarke's drive, if you want to get technical. Folds space and time around it in order to move from one point in the universe to another.

Basically, it creates wormholes.

[ Explaining the physics of the thing isn't going to be a piece of cake, so she's keeping it basic for now. ]

[Well, at least the people in charge aren't as malicious as Stats thought, but you never know.]
Well, I have about a thousand questions. First I would like to know where we're supposed to be going ultimately, and how we're supposed to get back home.
Then, is this ship sentient? I mean, I am.
How does it goes around? What would a 'jump' be?
What are we supposed to do? I'm a tall ship, well, I used to be one, but I'm afraid I cannot help here in this current form. Unless someone shows me.
And why did I change species? Am I the only one?

[He's already gathered that the ship is human-built (although clearly not by humans he knows of), even though it's as big as a hive. But there's one thing that just stands out. Something that's completely unheard of.]

Does this ship not have inertial dampeners? How do you manage travel between hyperspace jumps?

[ A second as she reads the text, and then: ]

We don't technically move when we jump, but the ship is outfitted with everything it needs in order to withstand jump shocks. [ It's why they have the grav couches. And you can't see the hull of the thing, but its shields are pretty damn magnificent. ]

What is it you would have us do in order to 'pull our weight', and will you be providing training for the inexperienced?

Captain, Commander.

Operating under the assumption that the vast majority of personnel the Tranquility has appropriated are from varying universes and points in space-time, I believe it would be reasonable to assume that your crew has likely been transported to our respective native continuums.

I must then, however, theorize that the means by which you have performed the jump have altered. Perhaps due to internal error or unexpected interference from space itself. Has the ship's computer retained any relevant information regarding it's last entry into what I presume was the use of a wormhole? And are the vessel's life systems fully operational?

[identity profile] archimedeia.livejournal.com 2011-12-08 07:43 pm (UTC)(link)
[ It's not an unreasonable assumption. Kind of a stretch, though, as the ship's personnel went missing far before you people showed up. You have pointy ears and funny eyebrows. What's up with that. ]

Everything's operational, nothing out of the ordinary. I checked and double-checked the minute we began receiving network transmissions, but there's nothing to suggest anything needs repair. [ She sighs, irritated. ] We still can't access the ship's internal data storage systems, but general readouts are working just fine. The only discrepancy from before and after the jump is the number of lifeforms on board. That's it.

How kind of you to finally make yourselves known, before anyone has had time to actively express some amount of panic or great discomfort at this situation.

[ Rubbing his forehead like it's nobody's business as he speaks, though he raises his gaze to look directly at the feed with slightly dead and unimpressed eyes. He pointedly doesn't continue, though, leaving his stare to do the talking, but he isn't really looking for a fight, not this time around. There's a tired level of exasperation to his voice that already sounds a little defeated. ]

Were key-cards or something along those lines a little too basic for you? I think intelligent tattoos are something of a drastic stretch, to be quite honest. [ huff ] All the same, a pleasure to meet you, Captain, Commander.

Ah. Excuse me - I can imagine that you are both having a difficult time answering all of the questions we have, and I would first like to say that we appreciate the answers you may be able to supply. I do, however, have two questions of my own; please feel free to reply at your convenience. I know how difficult running a ship this large must be.

I assume that you have been out of contact with your ground control for some time, if the ships crew has disappeared and there has still not been a formal investigation into the matter. My condal- uh. My sympathies, I believe is the proper saying? For things like this. But, is that true? That you haven't made contact yet?

Also, I feel like this may be a silly question to ask, but is there any particular reason, that you can think of, that specific individuals were chosen to come aboard? After all, I. [Running out of breath to talk with; hold on while he catches it.] Well, it's rather complicated, but I believe that whatever happened had to go through a great deal of effort in bringing me here, more-so than others. I was just wondering if you had any ideas about this at all, really. I'm sorry, my questions are barely questions when we get down to semantics. But the inquiry remains, I suppose.
