With a final lurch, the Far Orbit finally breaks free from the clutches of the massive yet hidden object. But not without cost. Once the ship is clear of immediate danger Lieutenant Ludax shuts off power to the main engines, their temperature indicators so far into the red that he cannot believe that they haven't melted into slag.

Ross reports, "Holding station on the ... object, Commander."

Lieutenant Sirtis reports, "Clear of the debris field, Commander. Commencing sensor sweep. We have subspace comms again. We're receiving a hail from the Legitimate Business."

Santiago reports, "The nav computer has a fix on our position. We're a half-parsec from the Gacerian system. We were lucky. Beginning jump calcs to Aquilae."

"Make the calculations, yes, but we still need to fix the hyperdrive, and make sure that nothing else will go wrong during this next jump. Helm, watch our position, let me know immediately if we begin to be pulled toward that thing again. Communications, answer hail from Legitimate Business."

Killiri feels like he is about to throw up, but he manages to keep the feeling down.

Killiri is answered by a chorus of "Yes, Sirs!"

The usually pristine medical area is now nearly entirely covered in blood. The strains and groans of the ship are muted greatly in this area, not because of it's location, but because of the many screams and whines of wounded crewmen. The security escort attempts to push a hole through the crowd, but his efforts are mostly lost in the see of bodies. Progress through the area is nearly impossible carrying the stretcher. Brenko turns toward the two security personnel, ordering them to stay with the Captain, and attempts to move to a position a little further ahead and nearer the entrance of the medical bay. Believing it will be quicker for a single healthy person to make their way through, he begins pushing through the crowd, looking for one of the medical droids or the Doctor. At the same time, he pulls out his communicator and calls the bridge, "Commander Brenko to Commander Killiri. Sir, there are an enormous number of wounded here on Deck Eight. The majority of our crew seem to be injured to one extent or another. Sir, I suggest we contact the Alliance for immediate medical assistance or make an immediate jump to a planet with sufficient medical facilities."

"Commander," Lieutenant Santiago interrupts, before Killiri can respond to Brenko, "I am already plotting a course to Baroli in this sector. The navicomputer cannot compute a jump to Aquilae from our current coordinates. There are too many variables. Once at Baroli we can obtain updated charts and continue."

"The Captain is injured and unconscious. He is lying on a makeshift stretcher nearby. You will accompany me to him for an evaluation immediately. Follow me." Brenko turns to move back to the Captain, ensuring that the droid is obeying orders.

"No, Sir. I have orders to remain here. It is also standard protocol in mass casualty situations. You must bring the patient here to be assessed."

"Excellent, Ms. Santiago. Mr. Brenko, we will make the jump as soon as we are able to, and as soon as I can ensure that we will not have another accident. Comms, contact Engineering. I need to speak with them."

Commander Brenko uses his com to relay a message to the security personnel. "Bring the Captain into the triage room." He then turns to the medical droid. "I am Commander Jan Brenko, third in command of this ship. I am overriding your orders; you will accompany me to the adjacent room where the Captain is located and triage his wounds. Once complete you may return to your duties here."

"Sir, we've sustained circuitry overloads across twenty-one percent of the ship's systems. Damage control teams are dealing with the problems. Commander Tokan and Lieutenant Ludax are assessing the hyperdrive systems. I do not have an estimate at this time for you on when it'll be back online."

"Keep the bridge apprised. As soon as Commander Tokan or Lieutenant Ludax have an estimate, relay that information to the bridge."

Killiri motions for the call to be ended.

"Once the course is plotted, Ms. Santiago, if you are able I would like to see if we can plot the course that object is taking. It will be interesting to see where it has been and where it will be."

Killiri sits down and wipes some sweat from his brow. For now, at least, it looks like they would make it out in one piece. Or, at least most of the crew would make it out.

"Oh, communications, do we have access to the holonet yet?"

Dune emerges into the bridge."Yes, Commander?"

"Mr. Dune, there are several troubling alerts the Alliance and others have issued for our final destination." He pulls out his datapad and makes sure the alerts are pulled up on it, then hands it to Dune. "Use the conference room. Search through the holonet, to see what you can find on this. Any chatter on any channels. Just listening in, no communicating with anyone as of yet."

"Yes sir, Commander." Dune takes the tablet, and heads back to the conference room.

Once Dune is off the bridge, Killiri orders, "Communications, open a shipwide channel. Major Willak, please report to the bridge, if able."

Once the channel is closed, Killiri continues, "In addition, communications, please check through any public alerts or warnings for our present sector. Though make sure to keep an eye on any incoming transmissions."

Brenko pulls out his communicator and begins to hand it to the droid as the two security personnel walk in carrying the Captain. Taking a deep breath before speaking, and pocketing his communicator, Commander Brenko turns back to the droid. "Evaluate the Captain," he says as he points the droid in the right direction. I'm beginning to understand the Captain's distaste for these things.

"Diagnosis is complete. Take him to ICU 5," the droid points the troopers to the corridor directly behind itself. "Third room aft on the starboard side. You," indicating Brenko, "May leave. The Captain will be attended to and your presence is unnecessary and obstructing."

Turning towards the security personnel. "Take him there and stay with him until he is seen, then return to your duties. Keep me informed of his status." Pulling out his communicator, Brenko opens a channel to the bridge. "This is Commander Brenko. The Captain is being taken to ICU 5. I've instructed two security personnel to stay with him until medical can attend to him at which point they can return to duty. Where can I be of most use to you now, Commander?"

"Mr. Brenko, get me a count of the number of injured crewmen, and a separate count for the number dead. Shifts and watches will need to be updated as appropriate. When you have the count, return to the bridge."

"Yes sir!" The commander acknowledges, before turning back to the droid. "You will get your desire. Report on the current numbers of wounded and dead or point me to where that information can be located. Then I will depart."

Brenko turns and moves to the bridge relaying the information to Killiri that he will have to access it on the data-banks as Brenko has insufficient clearance.
