A New Game Plan
Episode 1: A Lesson in Humility
Location: Jungle, Near Typhon's Creation
Timeline: Following "Precarious Positioning"
The stream wasn't very big, but the low sounds of water made it feel safer than it probably should. The group had gathered there for a little, giving their injured friend time to recover. In the meantime, they'd been trying to formulate a game plan on what to do next.
Amelia was absently drawing the landmarks she remembered in the sand. "So the only real thing of significance we saw was that device in the pirate camp. And honestly, we never got close enough to figure out what it was or what it was used for. Did anything turn up of significance on the desert side?"
"I am detecting something," Isley said, looking down at the tricorder. The blonde then pointed off in the distance. "It's a metal object not far from the cave opening. I can't tell exactly what it is yet. We will have to get closer."
"Well, let's go take a peak." Connor said with a grin "We are still explorers, right?"
After getting Thyra settled near the stream with a cool compress and water, Morgan discreetly checked the rest with his tricorder and then walked from person to person looking everybody over. "If anyone has bumps, bruises, injuries you're deciding to not tell me about...please don't," he smiled at the assembled members of Defiant's crew. "I would rather not have to amputate anything when we're back on Defiant that I could have triaged and treated in the field."
"I'm fine doctor," Ian replied as he looked around the small clearing, "So far no injuries whatsoever. I think I'll go with the group exploring the jungle. If pirates show up, I'm the best one to deal with them."
Amelia nodded. "Sounds like we have our plans then. You guys check out that, metallic object. We'll try and circle back to the camp and see if we can get a closer look."
