[22:13:19]CaptCerseiNaal: We'll see when they get down there.  ::holds her hands behind her back and glances toward the chronometer::
[22:13:19]Cdr_Khevok: $:: Nods to Higgs, Shepherd, Nightwing ::
[22:13:44]LtJg_NightWing: $ ;;looks around trying to read the lips of the other groups;;
[22:13:48]LtJg_Higgs: $ Actually... ::She turns to Naal:: I do have a question, ma'am.
[22:14:04]CaptCerseiNaal: ::slight nod toward Higgs:: Lieutenant.
[22:14:19]LtJg_Higgs: Are we all to remain on one frequency for communication, or are our teams on our own frequency to reduce channel chatter?
[22:14:40]LtjgEsdanOretal: @ ::nods and begins working on his vest to make sure it is tight::  I hear you.  And I've got a full set of tools.  ::holds up his kit - tricorder, spanners, the works::
[22:14:53]CaptCerseiNaal: Team frequencies.  Team leaders will have another channel to monitor.
[22:15:07]CaptCerseiNaal: And the directors can cut in at any time.
[22:15:09]LtJg_Higgs: ::She nodded:: Thank you ma'am.

[22:15:31]LtCmdrDeniaud: @ ::sighs and releases a breath and looks around:: Alright everyone.  You know the drill.  We don't know what's happening, so stay alert.  Report everything you see and don't assume the best.
[22:15:34]LtAmeenaCiamli: $ ::slides the phaser rifle over her shoulder::
[22:15:45]CaptCerseiNaal: ::another nod:: K'Trevala.
[22:15:56]LtJg_NightWing: $ what  happens if something happens to the team leader? who takes over then?
[22:15:59]LtCmdrDeniaud: @ First thing we do when we get down there is secure our immediate area.  ::looks at Gideon to confirm::
[22:16:06]CaptCerseiNaal: Chain of command.
[22:16:23]LtJg_Higgs: $ ::She begins taking note of everyone's transponder and logging it into her tricorder to moniter.::
[22:16:34]LtJg_NightWing: $ aye ma'am, just making  sure
[22:16:38]FstLtGideonSalieri: @ ::glances up and around at the others before he nods::
[22:16:52]CaptCerseiNaal: ::small smile::
[22:16:59]LtjgEsdanOretal: @ ::looks at Gideon::  And once we're secure?
[22:17:10]LtCmdrDeniaud: @ We do what we need to do.
[22:17:24]LtJg_Higgs: $ I suggest all medical personell take log of your teammates transponders.
[22:17:38]FstLtGideonSalieri: @ ::withdraws a bit at the look, still without his empathic ability::
[22:17:47]Cdr_Khevok: $:: Taps his earpiece :: Be alert, team Delta.
[22:18:05]LtJg_NightWing: $ ;;Logs all the rest of the team's transponders;;
[22:18:07]LtCdrShepherd: $ ::looks at Khevok:: Sir.  I suggest that engineering officers immediately set up a perimeter with security.  We can create temporary force fields if needed.
[22:18:11]CaptCerseiNaal: Any last questions?  You depart in two minutes.
[22:18:54]Cdr_Khevok: $ :: Nods at Shepherd :: See to it when we arrive.
[22:18:54]LtJg_Higgs: $ ::This mission hnad hner heartrate a little higher than normal. This seemed a lot more in depth than the last few missions.::
[22:19:12]DrMavelleKivo: ::steps forward and clears her throat:: Officers.  Your orders.
[22:20:14]LtJg_Higgs: $ ::At this point, she waited.::
[22:20:35]DrMavelleKivo: Team leaders.  Pay attention to your orders. Gamma.  You are to secure your perimeter.  Delta.  You are the protective detail of the Federation ambassador.  ::continues to call out team duties::

[22:21:18]Cdr_Khevok: $ Understood, Sir.
[22:21:19]LtCmdrDeniaud: @ ::nods:: Okay and looks around:: Looks like we can assume we'll be on the outskirts.  That's more of a clue than normal.

[22:21:46]DrErikVaeros: $ ::silently grumbling::
[22:21:58]CaptCerseiNaal: =/\=      ACTION:  After ten minutes, Captain Naal calls the crew to attention.  With a single nod from the Trill, the teams are transported to their designated protection points.  They find themselves surrounded by black sands with swirls of amber, where a cruel sun beats down on their bare skin.      =/\=
[22:22:08]CaptCerseiNaal: =/\=      ACTION:  There isn’t even a wisp of pink clouds to soften the harsh light of the red sky.  Their feet sunk into the searing sands.  The air was thick, each breath heavy and like drowning in fire.  It is a wasteland of desert, the town left in ruins from viciously created earthquakes and months of harsh conflict.      =/\=
[22:22:18]CaptCerseiNaal: =/\=      ACTION:  There is a hint of salt in the air from the ocean.      =/\=
[22:22:33]CaptCerseiNaal: =/\=      ACTION:  Gamma (@) are on the outskirts of the ruined city.  Plaster and mud brick rubble are strewn about.  The remnants of buildings still stand, blocking any view of the city center, where the delegates and protection detail are located.      =/\=
[22:22:45]CaptCerseiNaal: =/\=      ACTION:  Delta ($) finds themselves near the location of the diplomatic meeting.  The ancient ruins in the center of the square are the only structures left standing without a hint of damage.  In the center of tarnished golden pillars is a large triangular stone slab.  Starfleet’s representative is already waiting on one side, seated on a stone bench.      =/\=

[22:24:52]Cdr_Khevok: $ The rest of you are with me.
[22:25:07]LtJg_Higgs: $ Yes sir. So far tricorder shows nothing out of the ordinary.

[22:28:28]LtRaynaElkhorn: $ ::frowning deeply as she shakes her head as she mutters::  This is really crappy.
[22:28:43]USFNazir: $ Liana>  Months ago, the Teitekians created a machine under the great cities and caused the tectonic plates to shift.  The USS Lorelei was sent to offer aid and Starfleet essentially were forced to become involved when two of our officers were captured and tortured during relief efforts.
[22:28:58]DrTytianMallister: @ ::scanning the area for possible places to set up a perimeter::
[22:29:01]LtJg_Higgs: $ ::She looks up at Khevok for a moment, before realizing the silent question.:: All is good sir. Anywhere she moves, I'll see. Vitals are on point.

[22:29:53]FstLtGideonSalieri: @ We’ll need to be sure it’s still structurally sound.  We’d be able to see the entire city.  ::motions in the direction of the city center, very hesitant to take a step but starts walking with his head on a swivel::  Non posso scopare niente.  (I can’t feel anything.)
[22:30:10]LtRaynaElkhorn: $ They’re going to need you after this.  ::glaring up at the sky, as if it would reach the directors::
