*Over Lanco III, the Allied fleet has defeated the Rebel Forces, several of their ships surrendering. A series of dropships and shuttles begin landing on the planet, attempting to take the supply base.*
Sam: Keep me informed of the Ground Forces' progress.
John DeFalco (Science Officer): Hello. What are you then?
John: Have a look at this.
*Sam walks over to DeFalco's station and looks at scanner telemetry of a large Ring Structure over Lanco II.*
Sam: What is that?
John: I have no idea. Launch a probe?
Sam: Make it so.
*John presses a few controls, and the Republic launches a probe towards Falco II. A few minutes later, the telemetry comes back.*
John: Looks like it's made from some kind of Neutronium Alloy, plus several other alloys. Most of these are found on Falco III.
Sam: What is it?
John: These look like generators. There's large traces of deuterium and equipment that could be used to create Red Matter. These look like emitters. Fascinating.
Matt: I think he's found a new toy.
Sam: *Snaps fingers* John, wake up. Rise and shine, sleepy-head. Is it a weapon?
John: There are markings on the side of it...
*Matt rolls his eyes while Sam facepalms*
They look Romulan, but...
No, that symbol looks Dinasian.
"Door to Enforcement"? No, "Gateway to order."
Sam: Give a Xenolinguist a bunch of symbols and you'll never get him back!
Sam: Weapon, is it?
John: Well, it looks some kind of... trans-dimensional transportation system.
Matt: in English?
John: A, er... Door, gate, wormhole generator.
Matt: Still, following, you, not!
Sam: An Iconian Gateway?
*John and Matt look at her, before staring at the holographic display.*
John: Hold on...
Dinasian, Dewan and Iccobar. These aren't symbols from those languages! They're symbols from Iconia!
"Gateway to Order... Salvation... Homecoming...and..."
*The three look at each other, exchanging worried glances.*
Matt: They're coming back.
Sam: Helm... *Walks over to the Command Chair* set course for Lanco II. Maximum Warp.
*The Republic and Excalibur warp away from Lanco III and reach the Gateway over Lanco II. The gate has a silver sheen, with blue energy channels moving across the edge. The Gateway is 250km in diameter.*
Sam: We're going to need more ships. Get the rest of the fleet here... now...
Star Trek Online: These are the voyages... (a forum role-play thread. All are welcome!)
