    Mission: The New Collective
    Location: Main Bridge
    Timeline: Simultaniously with Groundfall


    Melody was pacing in the area just in front of the viewscreen. The away team has just beamed down and there was a knot forming in her stomach. She had a gut feeling something was..... wrong but she tried to push that feeling aside.

    Normally, such an action would drive a helmsman crazy, but not Sav. She was lightly immersed into the Merlin as she directly used the sensors to keep watch on the surrounding space, as well as keeping a close tab on proximity alarms, just in case the Borg left a surprise in orbit. They hadn't, yet.

    =/\= Captain, we're on the planet. There's an odor here, one I haven't smelled in a long time, death. Just by the looks of things, the Borg used their cutting beams to literally mow down buildings and vegetation. The marines are scouting our perimeter and we will head towards our objective once we taken some initial scans of the area, any change or amendments to our orders?"=/\=

    =/\= No change Number one, proceed as discussed with caution. Something about this feels wrong. No unnecessary risks understood?=/\=

    Harris looked over the rail from his station toward the command deck. "Captain it has been my experience that when something feels wrong it usually is wrong. I would suggest to leave any injured parties where they lay. They are most likely a trap designed to lure in others." The snare was something that was used since time immemorial, and more importantly it would be exactly what Zim would do if he were them.

    Melody crossed to his station. She kept her voice low, but her words were steel. "I'm not prepared to leave people to die a slow death. That would make us no better than the Borg. If it is a trap, we'll cross that bridge should we come to it. But I'm not going to turn my back on anyone who's suffering and needs our help. Is that clear Mr Zim?"

    Harris lowered his voice as well. "Crystal Captain. I was merely pointing out a possible course of action. If it is your wish to effect rescue, then we will see it done." She was the Captain and as such bilked no argument, it was how he was raised and how he would live his life. However, Harris Zim disagreed with the Commander's assessment that leaving the injured would make them no better than the Borg. The good of the many, he thought and Zim knew that everyone on this ship would lay down their life to make sure that no one would fall into a trap.

    "Of course Chief. As long as the ship and crew are in no immediate danger, we will render aid where it is needed. We should never abandon our humanity."

    Zim held his tongue as he had many times since joining Starfleet. He wanted to remind the Commander that he was not human, and had no humanity as she put it. However, instead he nodded in agreement to what she had said and issued the orders to the appropriate support staff.

    Sav now spoke up with an idea, "Captain, I have a suggestion please? What if we beam down extra communicators to the away team, and if they come across somebody in a bad predicament, they toss the comm badge onto them to be beamed up into medical quarantine for care and to make sure no nasty surprises by the Borg?"

    "Good idea Commander, please see to it and alert sickbay that they could be receiving survivors."

    Sav raised an eyebrow as Tactical would normally handle this, but settled in and decided to do it and let tactical continue their focus on the unusual area. =/\= Transporter room 3, Bridge, please beam down 10 comm badges coded with Quarantine Medical. Instructions are to throw them over onto survivors so when they activate, the surivors are transported to medical Quarantine for care and checks for borg traps, keeping the away team free to do their assigned tasks. Got it?=/\=

    =/\= Bridge, Transporter Room 3, Chief Michaels, acknowledged and understood, Transporter room 3 out.=/\=

    Sav now commed medical, =/\= Medical, Bridge, the away team is receiving comm units keyed for immediate transport to Medical Quarantine Areas. This is to allow Medical Quarantine to isolate in case of Borg traps while getting the survivors help, if any. Please be aware and setup accordingly.=/\=

    =/\=This is Dr Goldberg here, acknowledged Bridge. We will coordinate with Dr Ki on the ground and full quarantine protocol will be observed. Sick Bay out.=/\=

    Sav called out to Melody, "Captain, Transporter room 3 and Medical Dr. Goldberg acknowledge orders."

    Zim sent a console to console message to the Tactical station. "I believe it would be prudent to send security to Sick Bay as a back up precaution. Permission to do so?"

    Melody nodded. "Make it so Chief." She then made her way back over to the Captain's chair and sat down, drumming her fingers on the arm rest.

    =/\= Jones to away team, any developments?"=/\= Melody called out.

    =/\= "We just located another survivor. They are partially buried under some rubble. Please let sickbay know that we'll have him beamed up once we free him." =/\= Came Marbim's response.

    =/\=Copy that way team.=/\= Melody switched comm channels =/\=Sickbay, prepare to receive a survivor.=/\=

    Melody mused out loud. "Maybe some answers."

    A few minutes went by before =/\= Merlin, one critical patient to beam directly to sickbay =/\=

    =/\= Captain, Doctor Ki is already aboard with our survivors. We’re beaming a computer to Shuttlebay 2 where it needs to be stored behind a heavy security field. Once the rest of us finish some scans we’re beaming up as well, there’s an explosive device in the lab that’s counting down, and as it’s alien tech, we’re just leaving rather than try to stop it and lose more people, Marbim out =/\=

    Melody was on her feet "Explosive?" She looked at Zim "Chief set up that forcefield in the shuttlebay. She tapped her comm badge =/\= Bridge to transporter room prepare to beam the away team back. =/\=

    Harris looked at Melody as if to say I told you so He quickly input the request into the ship's computer to set up the forcefield. All the while he thought that he hated when he was right.

    Melody then contacted the surface. =/\=Merlin to away team. No heroics now. Prepare to beam back to the ship. =/\=

    =/\= No heroics, got it Mam, be back on the Merlin ASAP! =/\=

    Melody felt the look that Chief Zim gave her but decided to say nothing. the transporter chief came back on the comm. =/\= Transporter room to bridge, the away team is back onboard.=/\=

    Melody nodded. "Good. Chief, you have the bridge. I'll be in shuttlebay 2. Let's go investigate our prize."
