Security, report to Sickbay! We've had an intruder! All stations, Security Condition Yellow.
*The Yellow Alert Klaxon chimes and a Small security team meets Sam in Sickbay.*
Where's Doctor Andrews?
Andrews: Here, Captain.
*Sam walks over to Andrews, who's in the Iso-lab examining the Alien.*
Sam: This was the intruder?
Andrews: Yes sir. It's biology is incredible! I can't get any readings! It has energy dampening skin, and has a metamorphic cell structure, but aside from that, it's humanoid.
Sam: Doctor, what have you been able to tell?
Andrews: This thing disguised itself as Ensign Doran. I've got security looking for him now, but...
The creature also appears to be neutral blooded. It can adapt it's body temperature at will, as well as being able to disguise it's genetic coding.
I had to use a hand phaser to penetrate it's skin.
Sam: Doctor, I need to know how to detect these things.
Andrews: I'll keep you posted. Admiral Allen's in the next chamber. Put a breathing unit on before you go in, though.
Sam: Doctor, were the nanites--?
Andrews: Our friend here swapped them for something similar to Borg nanoprobes. I'm having a new set replicated, but...
Sir, the nanoprobes froze the virus, but it's going to work against us.
Andrews: If I don't get the new nanites in soon, the disease will enter the contagious stage, and thyere's every chance that the nanoprobes will counteract the nanites.
Sam: Then remove them!
Andrews: We're working on it.
Sam: Good. Keep me posted.
*Sam starts to walk out, before Andrews walks alongside.*
Andrews: Captain, Commander Santiago spoke to me an hour ago.
Andrews: I'm not trying to defend him, but the crew has noticed a change in your personality. You're more formal, more taxing, and--
Sam: Are you getting anywhere close to a point?
Andrews: When was the last time you took shore leave?
Sam: Doctor, I know I'm a little testy, but I assure you--
Andrews: How long?
Sam: *Sighs* I don't know. 5 years? Maybe more?
Andrews: Then it's been too long.
Sam: Doctor, this ship is about to embark on a dangerous mission with minimal support from--
Andrews: Captain, in matters medical, I outrank everyone. Now, I am prescribing at least 12 hours recreation and relaxation. It will take at least that long to reach the 2nd Fleet anyway.
Do I need to make that an order?
Sam: What am I supposed to do aboard this ship for 12 hours?
Andrews: Read a book. Finish that novel you've been writing. Run a holo-program - I recommend program B5:TLT, Subheading: Voices in the Dark. Just do something to relax yourself.
Sam: Fine, I surrender.
*Sam walks into a turbolift.*
*Inside James' mind *
*It is a battle to control his own body... The new substance... is expanding his conciousness and doing something to him... The visions are expansive and disturbing... But he is slowly realizing that... This is entirely in his control... To gain control of the disease and be condensed in this substance to survive..*
*Do so... The virus slows and retreats back wards some away from the epidemic stage... back to a small distance.. The substance is a drug.. of sorts... *
Ooc: I'm going to give some backstory on Jacob. As I'm sure you noticed.
Jacob soon walks into a small room. It's empty now save dust .his mind goes back he and his mother where out in the mountains taking a hike. They had gotten halfway up the mountain when his mother had heard something and felt someone was there. ( his mom was a betazed so he inherited her abilities plus more since his augmentation. )
She had been a former Starfleet security officer and had always had a phaser on her. She motions him to stop as she pulls out the phaser. And fires it hitting a man. But it is the only shot she gets out. Two men come behind her and fire. And then grab Jacob. The next thing Jacob knows he wakes up in a empty room. Dark and cold.
Jacob blinks his eyes and is back in the empty facility. He walks through the whole facility. And then sits there.
