River Of Forgetfulness #1&2 - "I Smell A Conspiracy"
- OOC: This is the first post of our new mission River of
Forgetfulness. So all posts following this one should be numbered
accordingly. Due to the length of the mission name, you might want to
shorten it to ROF in case it conflicts with the length of the post
title. Carry on. ;)
[Promenade, Starbase Ronin]
It must have been a restless sleep, he twisted and turned on the
bench. His clothes looked old, unwashed and torn and even some stains
of blood were present on his shirt and trousers. Slowly he opened his
eyes before screaming out and dropping to the ground, covering his
eyes. "Ah!" he shouted rubbing his eyes hoping the pain of the bright
light would go away sooner. He turned some heads on the promenade but
they all let him be, some even steered clear of the man, especially
Russell exited the turbolift and entered the Promenade deck. He had a
good night sleep after the latest Tarzan and Jane adventure. He never
imagined how exhausting a day of jungle excitement could be, even if
he wasn't really himself. Starting the new day with a stroll over the
Promenade deck would help him focus on this new day. It was quite
busy and he greeted a few familiar faces in the crowds.
Slowly the mysterious man crawled away from under the bench and
looked around, eyes squinted so that the least possible light fell
through, he had to get to a doctor, he felt his body hurt so much
that he didn't know what it was exactly that hurt. "Doctor! I need a
doctor!" he shouted, the language he shouted it in was automatically
translated into Federation standard by the computer. He almost stood
up but fell to the floor again, noticing his leg in an odd position
he yelled out again "ARGH!!!"
Above the buzzing noise common on a busy Promenade deck Russell heard
the cry for help a few dozen meters in front of him. He couldn't see
what was going on, so he put up the pace to get closer to the
emergency. "Doctor, coming through!" he said while trying to get past
the immediately surrounding people.
Within the circle lay a Reman on the ground in a very uncomfortable
manner. It was obvious that his leg was broken. But that was not his
only injury. He seemed to have a lot of cuts and bruises all over his
body and apparently was very sensitive to light in his eyes. Russell
sat down next to the man. "The doctor's here. Don't move to avoid
further injury." he said to the unknown Reman. "Who are you and what
happened?" he asked.
The Reman man relaxed "I... I..." he tried to look the human male in
his eyes. "...I don't know" this conclusion shocked even himself, he
could remember nothing before he woke up here... panic almost
overcame the man. "...what did you do with me! Why am I here!" He
started to push the self proclaimed Doctor away from him.
"Calm down!" Russell said in an attempt to put the Reman at ease and
backed down a little. "I didn't do anything to you... yet. I have no
idea why you are here, but you'd better get to a sickbay with me to
treat your injuries." he said trying to reason with him.
The Reman man shouted in agony as Russell tried to restrain him, the
wounds on his body had been worse then he thought. He gave up, not
because he trusted this man but because he couldn't fight him off and
he needed mending. He lay back on the ground, exhausted by the pain
across his entire body.
It seemed as if the Reman gave up. Russell took this chance to get
him to a sickbay. He tapped his combadge. =/\= Doctor Floyd to
Transporter chief. I need site to site transport for two to the main
sickbay on my mark. =/\=
=/\= Transporter signal locked, sir. =/\= The transporter chief
=/\= Acknowledged, initiate transport. =/\= Russell said and both
disappeared in blue shimmers from the Promenade deck to reappear in
the centre of the large sickbay aboard the station. "Please help me
get this man on a biobed, carefully!" he said to the medical staff
rushing over to them. <A Reman aboard the Starbase, this has to be
something the captain would like to know.> Russell thought to himself
and tapped his combadge again. =/\= Doctor Floyd to Captain LaBrie. =/
Caelen just stepped out the turbolift in Main operations and had
greeted all the present personnel, relieving Lieutenant Mayik of
command. =/\= LaBrie here, what's wrong Doctor? =/\=
=/\= You might want to come down to the main sickbay, captain. We
have an unknown visitor who's badly injured. =/\= Russell answered
Caelen frowned a bit =/\= Do you care to elaborate on that Doctor? =/
\= while he asked that he motioned someone else to take over in Ops
and stepped into the turbolift =/\= Sickbay =/\= he ordered the lift,
not having closed the comchannel yet.
=/\= He's a Reman, sir. With apparent loss of memory. He didn't know
how he got here and couldn't even tell me his name. =/\= Russell
answered his captain. =/\= I thought you would like to know. =/\=
=/\= I'm almost at your doorstep Doctor... LaBrie out =/\= and with
that he walked into sickbay, somehow the entire V ordeal had made him
a fast walker. "Report" he simply stated, walking up to the bio bed.
"Well, that was fast." Russell smirked immediately coming to
business. "I found him on the Promenade deck calling out for help.
His leg is broken and he has several cuts and bruises all over his
body as if he has had a severe beating. He passed out so I had him
transported to sickbay." he explained. "That's when I called y..."
"Commander LaBrie!" a somewhat distantly familiar voice spoke out
from behind him "So good to see you again, I didn't know you had been
graced with a Starbase."
"Or cursed." added another voice, again distantly familiar.
Caelen turned around "It's actually Captain now..." He paused a bit
as he saw who had 'graced' him with their presence "...Colonel Sock,
Major Bokma" he said in somewhat reluctant greeting.
Russell also turned around when he heard the voices behind him.
"Well, ain't that a surprise." he said with a slight sarcastic
undertone. "Are you in need of medical assistance?" he asked, knowing
full well that was not why they were here.
"We are in need of that man Doctor" the Colonel replied, walking
closer to the bio bed "that man is the leader of a rebellion that
cost the loves of over a hundred Romulan citizens... we have been
looking for him for the past two weeks, fortunately you found him
first... and fortunately the Federation and Romulan Star Empire has a
treaty about these kinds of situations"
"Luckily there are also treaties about asylum and medical care..."
LaBrie countered "...as long as this man is in need of Medical care
he will not leave this room, let alone this base"
At this Bokma pulled his disruptor from his holster "Who said he had
to leave this room?"
"Now, now, Major... Calm down... That would be a very unwise
action..." Colonel Sock urged his right hand to stand down arms
before he turned to the Doctor "...How long will this take?"
"For his full recovery, you mean?" Russell asked. "I can't say for
sure yet. I've barely had time to complete the scans on his injuries.
Broken leg, loss of blood, maybe internal bleedings judging from the
large amount of bruising. He's in bad shape." Russell said summing up
the facts he anticipated.
Caelen frowned at that remark and then turned to the Romulan
Tal'Shiar agents "Yeah... we barely had time to scan him and already
you walk in... other then me and Russell and maybe some bystanders on
the promenade nobody knows about this man..." he looked at the two
suspiciously "...and as far as I know there is no Romulan Warbird
docked with this station"
"Ah now... that's an interesting story, Captain..." Sock replied
smirking a bit.
"...and it's also a classified one" Bokma added to his immediate
The Reman groaned, he needed medical attention and he needed it now.
Russell picked up a medical tricorder to scan the injuries of Reman
Doe. "And we're not gonna find out anything more if you don't let me
treat this patient. Would you please get out of my way so I can save
a man's life?" Russell said politely shooing the gathering near the
Caelen turned to the Romulans and motioned them to leave the sickbay,
"Do your thing Doctor" he stated before stepping out himself as well,
there was no way he was going to let these two men out of his sight
now... It was all too suspicious.
"So much for a quiet morning." Russell muttered.
