    Posted on Wednesday 26 June 2019 @ 23:59 by Lieutenant Breana Rathburn & Commander Melody Jones

    Mission: The New Collective
    Location: Holodeck 1
    Timeline: Right after "Test subject 547"

    "Captain, I need you in holodeck 1 please! Rathburn out"


    Bree had burst into the holodeck that Doyle and Team A was in, causing the group of them to blink and look at her strangly. Doyle was the first to start to ask what was wrong, yet she silenced him with a shake of her head. "I'll explain when the Captain gets here. In the meantime, report on the nannite plan.

    Gripping tightly to the PaDD she stood and silently listened, watching the program before her play out as they attempted to use holographic images to show her the possible plans.

    The doors to the holodeck opened and Melody walked in. She came over to Rathburn. “Ensign. What have you got for me?”

    As the Captain entered, Doyle killed the program that they had been currently working on so that Bree could take the room. While he wasn't exactly sure what she'd found, the fact that she had chose to meet in here gave way it was something likely to be seen. .

    As excited as she'd been when she first put two and two together, Bree was suddenly now a nervous wreck. What if she was wrong? What if it was actually nothing? What if..... Oh crap, all eyes where on here and here she was standing there looking like a deer caught in headlights! Swallowing hard and.... trying now to ramble she blurted out.

    "The computer terminal found seems to be more of a medical one. Lots of information on the anatomy of the human body, how it works and all that stuff. They have, over time managed to find and use quiet a lot of test subjects. Now sure how they got them all, but that's not the question at the moment." Bree took a quick breath before continuing. "The test seemed to be done by three main techs, yet there was one page done by someone different. And that one had everything about the human body wrong. At first I'll admit I kind of skimmed by it.... but after rereading it... something clicked.... I could be wrong but..... " Oh crap, she was rambling.

    Melody was thinking as Breana gave her report. "Human anatomy? Why would they be studying human anatomy? Wasn't there something in the Voyager report about species 8472 using isomorphic drugs to assume human form? This raises some disturbing questions. Are they planning to infiltrate Starfleet?" she mused out loud.

    "What's the status with the nanite plan" Melody then asked?

    Having been trying to get her thoughts back together to finish telling the Commander when the woman got done pondering the news she'd just given her. Bree couldn't help but to blink at the sudden change of questions... dang it, she had to get her back on track! A glance went to Doyle a moment and she frowned catching the look on his face. He was enjoying seeing this little show and her trying to get though it all. The fun parts of being a Chief!

    "There is a few little quicks with the plan Ma'am that we are working to get figured out. The last thing we want is something to go wrong when playing with nanites. As soon as we have it figured out fully you will be the first to know Captain." Breana said with a slight shift in her stance as she held her focus on the woman before her fully once more.

    “Right then Ensign. I’m afraid we have a problem now. Having an Ensign as chief engineer is unacceptable. Especially one who dose this quality of work and has this level of commitment to their ship and crew. Do you have anything to say for yourself?” Melody looked her square in the eye keeping her face straight, her tone harsh.

    Oh son of a.... great, she'd screwed up something... wait, her lower lip rolled in as she nibbled on it worriedly and thought about what the Commander had just said. While the look on the woman's face wasn't pleasant, her words where... nice? Was that a complatment? But, why did she look like she could be made? And the problem was.... Gah... damn it! And that nervous rambling started again as she shifted slightly. "I umm... I'm just trying to do all I can to prove myself to you all Commander. I've been aiming for this Chief position for a long time and I... "

    Melody held up her hand. "I think I've heard enough." Melody went on, still keeping her tone serious. "As I was saying the quality of your work is exceptional and your dedication to your ship and crew is to be commended. Ensign Breana Rathburn, I hereby promote you to the rank of Lieutenant with all the rights and privileges thereto. And my god have mercy on your soul." She finally broke into a warm smile and held out her hand. "Congratulations Miss Rathburn."

    Bree blinked a few times as it all sank in, her heart was still pounding with the rush of emotions that had been flowing though her. She wasn't in trouble... she was... promoted? A slow smile started forming, brightening a little more as she heard Doyle and the A team clapping behind her. Reaching out she took the Commanders hand and shook it. "Thank you, Thank you Captain. I won't let you down."

    Melody nodded "Good. Now, I think we need to let Doctor Ki look at the data you've managed to recover. He might be able to determine what they were using it for. Did you managed to uncover anything else?"

    "Good idea Captain... and yes.. I think. Let me show you something Ma'am" With that, she hurried over to the computer panel and started up the replication of the quadrants they where currently in. Adding the numbers she'd managed to come up with with her findings. She glanced over her shoulder to the small planet that was currently glowing now.

    "I couldn't figure out why, with all the other lab reports being so accurate and on point with the human body, why this one would be so off." Breana stated as she made her way back over to Melody and handed over the PADD with the strange report on it. "If you do the math and look at the numbers closely, it's almost is if they become galactic latitude/longitude coordinates." She motioned to the glowing spot before them now as she went silent, that lower lip caught within the grasp of her teeth nervously once more.

    Melody looked at the glowing dot "I think it's worth a look, We'll set a course for those co-ordinates and we what we find."

    Bree glanced to the glowing planet herself as she heard Melody. While there was a bit of worry that this might be a mistake, that she'd read to much into it. Something in her told her that she hadn't done that. That... Taking a deep breath as she nodded slightly. "Sounds good Captain."

    Glancing around the room with a smile, she nodded. "Lets hope we find something good."
