// MISSION: OROS_

// OROS MISSION: AFTERMATH_



➣ Unexpected Consequences

As the Eluvio's crew prepares to send a retrieval ship down to pick up Alpha and Beta teams, disturbing reports of thermonuclear explosives detonating on the planet's surface start coming in to the command center. Scans show multiple detonations across the face of the planet and more happening every minute. The identity of those responsible for the initial warhead launches is indeterminable from the information the crew's able to compile, but one thing is certain: the deactivation of the defense grid by Beta team made it possible.

It's a race against time to get the teams back before nuclear fallout reaches them, but when the ship touches down at the LZ, another wrench in the works is discovered. Groups of frightened Trilk and Fek, conflict forgotten in the face of extinction, are futilely attempting to flee unavoidable death.

Captain Larson sends out a call for all available pilots willing to brave the falling bombs to head to the surface and evacuate as many of the Trilk and Fek as possible. There's no way to save them all, but the least the crew can do is try to save some of them.

➣ OOC Details and Information

Regardless of whether they participated in the any of the missions, all characters are now able to travel to the planet's surface to round up Trilk and Fek and evacuate them back to the Eluvio. Characters capable of flying spacecraft will be able to fly the Eluvio's cargo ships and those who can't are welcome to accompany the ships to help the evacuation effort. Please note that only pilots and characters with experience flying spacecraft will be permitted to fly the cargo ships. There isn't any time to teach the skills to characters that don't already possess them.

There are 20 cargo ships. Each cargo ship can hold 1 pilot, 2 non-pilot crew members, and 5 Trilk or Fek. This means that the maximum number of aliens that can be rescued is 100.

When Alpha and Beta teams arrive the LZ, there will be Eluvio personnel on hand to explain the situation. These characters will then be able to individually decide to either return to the ship or help with the evacuation.

The evacuation efforts will last from February 1st through February 4th. After that point, all ships and characters will be recalled to the Eluvio whether they have the full 100 or not. The Eluvio will then set a course away from Oros, leaving it and the remainder of its inhabitants to their unfortunate end.

Player participation will determine how many, if any, of the Fek and Trilk are rescued. Remember that the maximum number will be 100.

Once the alien refugees are brought aboard the ship, they will need to be integrated into life aboard the ship. Luckily for both the aliens and the Eluvio crew, there are some "experts" on hand to help the transition.
TRILK - One of the potential groups of Trilk refugees will be the individuals Gamma Team 4 encountered. If rescued, the Trilk will manage to convey to the Eluvio crew that they want those team members to serve as their liaisons for adapting to life in the fleet. This means that Allura, James Kirk, Leia Organa, Hera, and Leonard McCoy will be designated the resident Trilk experts.

FEK - One of the potential groups of Fek refugees will be the individuals that Gamma Team 5 encountered. Because they are at least a little familiar with those team members, these Fek will convey to the Eluvio crew that they want them to serve as their liaisons for adapting to life in the fleet. This means that Eichi Tenshouin, Yuuri Katsuki, and Victor Nikiforov will be designated the resident Fek experts.

LIAISONS - Liaisons will be asked to help with all things related to their alien of choice, whether that's mediating disputes between the still hostile groups, teaching them (and learning themselves) how to communicate with everyone, or helping them set up quarters and use the Eluvio's technology. Thanks to everyone's collective ventures on the planet, the R&D Department will have compiled a mostly good codex of the Trilk and Fek languages. This decoding and language dictionary will be uploaded immediately to all character devices on February 4th!
Please feel free to NPC the Trilk and Fek as you desire. If you want to use them for a plot device, go ahead. If you want to have your character help one set up a jewelry shop and be best friends, that's absolutely allowed. If they become too unruly and need to be thrown out of the airlock, well, these things do happen!

The surviving Fek and Trilk are assumed to be the last of their kind. For the time being, please assume that they're going to be a permanent part of the fleet.

IF YOUR CHARACTER IS GOING TO PARTICIPATE IN THE EVACUATIONS please comment HERE with the name of the character(s) involved (groups no larger than three), the type of alien rescued (Fek, Trilk, or a combination) and the number of each. Please remember that a cargo ship can only hold five of the aliens at a time due to their size. Characters can make multiple trips, though the combined number of Fek and Trilk refugees cannot exceed 100. Because of this, please don't claim that your character or your character's group saved all 100. Everyone who wants to participate will be able to do so and will be given credit ICly for it.

But that's not all! The ripple effects from the Oros Mission will be felt for considerable time to come. For instance:
Lee Adama and Agent Carolina will be awarded medals of commendation for their leadership in the field. These medals are made of an unknown substance and shaped like a sixteen-point star. (Just a little FYI, you guys might want to hang onto them.) They'll also be given free passes to the day spa to get some much needed R&R.

Dorian Pavus will be offered a position with the Research Department, where he'll be tasked to learn more about the samples Gamma Team 3 brought back to the Eluvio. He'll be trained to use all available technology. Once proficient, he'll be asked to create video and holographic models of Oros using the video that Team 3 took.

Reim Lunettes will be recognized for his quick thinking during Gamma Team 2's mission and will also be awarded a position with the Research Department. He'll be asked to create models and maps of the area in which the team buried the Beeping Device.

Koumyou will, upon arrival back to the ship, find one of those weird mutant rats that Gamma Team 2 had a run in with in his quarters.

Sombra will find a holographic puzzle box sitting on her bed when she returns to her quarters. It will be extraordinarily difficult to solve even for her talents. When she does manage to get it open, she will find the first of a series of clues. (When Sombra gets the puzzle box open, please PM us so that we can provide you with the first clue.) There's a mystery afoot that, once unraveled, will begin to shed a tiny bit of light on what's really going on aboard the ISC Eluvio.
➣ And coming soon...

The events of the Oros Mission have set off a string of events that will steer us through our first plot module. The next installment will begin in March. Keep an eye on the OOC comm for further details as February draws to a close.

I understand that the maximum number of rescued Fek and Trilk will be 100. I was wondering, however, if Allura would be able to use her personal space craft, the Castle of Lions, in helping to aid with this rescue mission, or if this can only be accomplished by the provided cargo ships.

quick question on behalf of any crazy kids who haven't had enough of this crappy planet: how would you like us to organize any Alpha/Beta team members who want to stay to help evacuate? will they be coming back to the Eluvio first and picking up a cargo ship from there to come back (and maybe pausing for a shower or whatever) or will arrangements be made for them to help on the surface and then hitch a ride back later?

Zelos has flown a rheiard before, which is a high tech ship that flies through the sky and can cross dimensions in certain areas. They never go into space through flying, but I was wondering if his knowledge of weird magitechnology things like this would let him pilot for this rescue mission! I think he'd be able to figure out the controls, so I just want to make sure it would be okay, since he's not from a real-world based planet.

Poor planet... poor everyone, sobs.

1. Once the rescue efforts have concluded, will any higher ups in the chain of command on the Eluvio be answering questions or disseminating any information as related to the relic and/or anything else that has happened since coming into orbit over Oros?

2. On the note of write-ups! Would it be helpful and/or can those of us who were on one of the missions for info gathering about the native species do a write up about what we did in world building for the species? A lot of it is going to be relevant even if the survivors are now refugees in space, and I know I barely summarized things at the mission turn in. Is it something that you guys would like to see us do? I know the group I plotted and worked with are more than happy to provide such a write-up!

3. Likewise, what's the gameplan on ship for handling the differences in air-needs for the Fek and Trilk? I know the settling in and the rest will be left in the hands of the Liaisons. But given the differences in air on planet and how I think the ship is largely for oxygen breathers, will the cargo ships & the Eluvio itself be outfitted with CO2 heavy chambers or something else likewise advanced and spiffy sci fi to account for how the Fek and Trilk breathe on ship?

4. Can we plot with people in this post to, say, figure out if the native species might be preferentially shoving their young onto the rescue ships with some of the experienced adult members of the species or anything like that? Saving our future, saving our children, kind of a thing............... sobsdflkjasdf

are the wounded/those done with the mission being flown back to eluvio in the ship they came down on? are they already back, or do they have to wait for the rest to be off-planet before their own ship can leave?

just wondering what date they can be allowed to return, as i had plots in the wing for when sombra's back on board eluvio!

[personal profile] symbiosys 2017-02-04 12:27 am (UTC)(link)
When you say that the evacuation happens from Feb 1st through Feb 4th, do you mean ICly or OOCly? I imagine that as soon as the news about Oros went out, it was all hands on deck trying to rush to the hangar to get the rescue mission going, so it seems a bit odd for it to last 4 days ICly... unless the trip to Oros itself lasts a lot of time?

On a different note, is it possible to sign up for a rescue mission "alone", as in handwaving npcs to make up the rest of the crew? I really want to throw Root into this, but because I'm late for plotting, I think that most (if not all) characters have already teamed up. :/

Asking this here to keep the Fek/Trilk things in one place!

Since there's a working language dictionary for both of the groups now, what would characters be told if they talk to the Fek and Trilk, and ask why they broke the treaty and started fighting?

hellooo, I have a lateish question about the Research Department position! Specifically, is it a permanent position, or is it just for Oros mapping and then go back to retail?

Also, is there a baseline of what working a more "serious" position like that is like in terms of what should and should not be shared around ICly, how much I can get creative with without stepping on toes, etc? Just so I know what to potentially mention happening in threads. Thank you!!

I hope this is kosher (please let me know if it isn't, mods!) but, while I know a lot of us are plotting on plurk already, I think it would be nice to have a catch-all on this event post of people who are planning on participating as pilots and non-pilots!

If you're without a group/searching for a group/looking for crew members, please respond with your intended role!

Goku wants to help! He can't fly a ship, but he's strong and non-threatening looking, so he'd be good for keeping the Fek/Trilk safe and stuff. He'll happily tag along with anyone who lets him and will probably be running around the hangar bugging people to take him to the surface.

ABOUT OUR REFUGEES...

[personal profile] genice 2017-02-02 12:05 am (UTC)(link)
What would people say to finding that of those we're rescuing, most are the young/the children of their respective species, alongside with a few key members of the species with the knowledge and/or reproductive capacity to teach, corral, and help with future generations of their... now decimated species?

It hardly has to be that way, but I was wondering at people's thoughts on this count.
