[previous "Simple Madness"]


Setting: USS ANUBIS, Bridge
Stardate: 31200.0230

Jayson sat at the Operations station, his hands still covered with the marks of his labor on the ANUBIS' system. The ship had set a course back the NEW ALEXANDRIA the moment the engines had been ready. He knew that a few more hours could have been used but after what they had heard, no one had been willing to wait.

From across the bridge Ya'Han glanced back at Jayson, the two of them sharing feelings wi...

Stardate: 31199.2050

Jason had made his way to where the break in the coolant pipe had occurred.  It had not been an exaggeration that the leak had only been the top of the iceberg. The entire corridor appeared as if it had been made of swiss cheese, and not the good kind.

With all of the wires and pieces of panels scattered all about it had been a miracle that the exact location of the leak had been found. ...

"What do you mean the conduit has not been repaired?!? It's been over two hours!" Jayson's patience had long left the ship, and pretty much everyone knew it.

=/\= Sorry Sir, but that coolant leak on deck 6 was just the tip of the iceberg.  You can check with Lt. Paquette... =/\=

While the two scientists were busy analysing the defense net that had nearly destroyed them all, Jayson had been busy coordinating the repairs to the ANUBIS.  The ablative armor had saved them from being destroyed but the ship had not gone through the ordeal unscathed.

The ANUBIS had fallen into a quick flight pattern around the BASTET, intercepting the majority of the miniature explosives before they could reach the other ship. As great as this plan had worked, the ablative armor had been taking a royal pounding, one that it would not be able to continue receiving for much longer.

Jayson did his best to help with the flight pattern, making small adjus...

His lack of sleep had still been there but it would have to wait. At least things had gotten busy enough to keep Jayson from nodding off and giving Sonja the satisfaction of winning her bet.

"The data link has been severed." The OPS officer said, the people on the bridge looking at the ship they had been following moving away from them as they increased speed.

He hated the running gag about him eventually falling asleep while on duty. Everyone seemed to be having a good laugh at his expense and Jayson could only imagine what else was being said about him behind his back. Yes he was tired. And yes it showed.

Since their return from the mission on the MASQUERADE DREAM he had not been able to get a decent night's rest. Doctor Doyanne had done her best and given ...

Jayson sat at the operations station, his thoughts still on the bed that he had been so abruptly pulled out of when the Captain called for all senior officers to report to the bridge. In the middle of a covert mission or in a region of space where enemy ships could appear out of nowhere, such a call would have made sense. With the ship within a stone's throw away from their base there had been no reason to ...

Jayson's thoughts had been lost in a haze of colliding memories and feelings. He could clearly remember the sweetness of her voice and the enchanting reflection in her eyes, but the OPS officer could not state with certainty if whether these things had belonged to Ya'Jun or Ya'Han.

Jayson had not even noticed that he had wandered away from the group. His mind, like his feet, had been going around aimlessly, moving from thought to thought. He remembered what he had done, how he had been responsible for what had happened to Lillie.  He felt anger, shame and disgust at what he had done, what he had put his fellow shipmates through.

With their subdermal communicators having been removed, Jayson and Lillie had been for all intents and purposes isolated from the rest of the group. The peace and quiet had been nice at first but it had soon become more than the OPS officer could handle.

He laid on the bed, his back against the softness of the sheets, his eyes locked on some unseen point on the ceiling.  Lillie had been right, in his current state of mind he had been useless to the rest of the team, scarier had been that fact that he had been useless to himself.

His head hurt in more ways than he could count. The feeling had been as if his head had been smashed against the side of a ship before being used as a ball by a bunch of pissed off Cardassians, and that was just the outside pain. His mind hurt just as much as he tried to piece together what had happened to him. Vague visions tried to come into focus, while disjointed memories attempted to reorder thems...

He followed the sound of her voice as if his life depended in it, the limp form of the unconscious CMO in his arms barely registering in his mind.

Falling back asleep had not been an option for him. His mind was filled with images, dreams and memories of Shae, and the problem was that he could not tell which were which.

The interference field that surrounded the moon had made things very difficult for the ANUBIS and its staff.  Commander Maya and Doctor Doyanne had found a way to poke holes through it but that had helped only a little, giving them a way to track the movements of the majority of the away team.

Luck had actually been on their side.  The unseen force had kept the Yxidii battle cruise out of their ...

Setting: USS ANUBIS, Bridge
Stardate: 30148.1715

From a safe distance they watched as the battle between the two alien forces raged on high above the surface of the moon.  The methods and tactics used by either side strangely reflected the race's general appearance and expected attitude or style.  The Yxidii had a single ship, large and imposing like themselves while the Akitashiinu used several smaller, faster ships, which attacked as a p...

He stood behind the black haired Chief of Security, his attention bouncing back and forth from the displayed information on the screen and the woman accessing it.  There was something strange and different about this one, well, something *more* strange and different.  When looking at the senior staff of the ANUBIS, it had been hard not to see something strange or different.  In that r...

Stardate: 30148.1520

With Seska and Maro attending the injured Akitashiinu, Jayson decided to join Doctor Doyanne in her examination of the impaled Yxidii.  The growing pool of whatever liquid had come out of the alien creature had made it difficult to get close.  Still, both the CMO and OPS officer managed to get as close as they each cared to be.

Stardate: 30148.1450

To say that the ILO had been upset would have been a huge understatement. She seemed ready to cry or lash out at the nearest target. What worried the OPS officer the most had been that she looked like she would do both at any moment.

"Why is she so upset at having seen her memories?"

Jayson's question had been directed to Counselor Dalziel who had taken a kneeling position in fron...

He had been a long-time expert in losing himself in a single memory, one that consumed his every thoughts and feelings.  It had taken a lot of time and work to have him be free of that one memory, a part of his past that threatened to destroy his future.  The moment the Captain's order was heard, that specific memory came to mind pushing all others out of its way.

Jayson closed his ey...

He stood next to the stopped four-wheel drive craft while scratching his head. His task had been to give directions to Commander Maya using the information that had been transferred from the VIPER to his tricorder. The problem was that he had lost the tricorder right after the jump over the chasm.  As much as he might have wanted to, there had been no way to get the tricorder out of the pool of lava it had ...

He held on to whatever he could as the LOCUS, under the expert control of the Shillian First Officer, dodged one fiery rock after the other.  Jayson could not help but think that hell itself had been falling on them. Of course this only added to the suspicions of foul play.

"Someone or something is defensively after us."

Jayson had barely managed to say those...

He glanced over his shoulder at the two VIPERS sitting on the ground.  It felt weird to just leave them behind that way, trading wings for wheels.  Jayson sighed as he looked down at the steering wheel in front of him. This would be a completely different experience, an experience that he was not entirely against.

The low hum of the engine gave no indications of the power these small personne...

It had been great to be back flying instead of just hovering over the crashed SPHINX. Jayson had never been good at feeling helpless, and it had taken a lot of hours talking to counselors for him to get over it.  Helplessness had been a common feeling following the accident that had claimed his wife and unborn child. So much so that it had made him stop living.

He saw Counselor Dalziel in the rea...

The two pilots had done all that they could to bring the ship down in one piece. The explosion of the power cores had not made things any easier, forcing Jayson and Wydran to pull away at the very last moment. That meant that the SPHINX had been on its own for the last 300 meters before it crashed on the rocky surface of the moon.  At least its nose had been ...

Between the time he had fired on VIPER 1 and the news of the Captain having been okay, Jayson had not breathed. The destruction of the craft had left him with a fear that the Ensign could barely control. His entire body trembled at the thought of what he had been a part of and what the result could have been.  Following orders had been one thing, but killing his CO on his first mission would h...

The general quietness of the last days was no more. Today had started with a bang and that was the way he liked it. Out of bed, dressed and out the door in a few minutes, that was what he had always hoped life in Starfleet would be like. Excitement around every corner.

Manning the Operations station on the ANUBIS was fun, but this would be better. The VIPERS were state of the art interceptors a...

The laughter from the table filled the entire room. It had felt good to laugh this way, a feeling that Jayson had actually forgotten. His life had gone from sadly depressed to constantly busy, leaving no room for the simpler joys.

His eyes were suddenly drawn to a new arrival to the Black Hole. There was something mysterious about the woman, and that she wore the grey on Intel had only ad...

The trip to PI ALPHA III had been quiet so far, yet the bridge had been a very busy place.  People had been coming and going for various reasons, but no major problem seemed to be at play.

A little before the end of his shift on the bridge, Stark thought he had heard the First Officer mention something about the ILO having been responsible for the turbolift m...

With the arrival of the new aCMO done and over with, the ANUBIS had resumed its course.  The wake-up call in the early hours of the morning of the second day had already been forgotten. Still, it had an unpleasant event that made Jayson's list of things he had not cared for during that day.

At the end of the second day, the Ops officer had made another entry in his personal log as per Counsellor Dal...

His shift on the bridge had ended, but the words of Counsellor Dalziel were still on his mind.  Forcing himself to think about Leena sounded crazy. He always thought of her in some way. But the more he thought about the idea, the more he understood the reason why.  How could he concentrate on his duties if his mind was elsewhere?

It had been three hours since their mission had begun. A simple training exercise on a moon that even the most daring of adventurer would have wanted to avoid. The final destination was still several days away which meant a lot of time for him to think.  Too much time.

It had been two hours since their departure. Performing all of his duties had kept him busy. At least for the time being. Now that routine began to settle in, memories began to surface.

Memories of his training at the Academy. These lead to memories of the Academy grounds. From there the memories went to a particular spot where he liked to sit. The counselors knew to find him there because that was w...

The VIPER-Class Interceptor was a marvel of modern engineering. As deadly as it was sleek, as powerful as it was fast.

No one would suspect that the two-man fighter was of Federation design. That was part of the deal. That was why it was shaped as it was. Anyone encountering it would know to fear it before even engaging it in combat. Yes, the VIPER looked *that* menacing.

The more he studied the ...

The medial scans had confirmed what he already knew. Physically Jayson was as healthy as could be. Four years in intensive training at the academy had insured that. The problem had never been his physical health, but the emotional scars he carried with him.

The Doctor had been very kind and patient with him. She could tell that he was nervous, that he didn't want to be there. This had been a f...

So far he had met the Captain and the Chief Science Officer of the ANUBIS. Captain Morningstar was a friendly chap, a man that he could see himself working under without any difficulties. The lead scientist though would be a little more challenging based on their first meeting.  She seemed nice enough but getting to talk to the woman might proved to be a full time job.  Still everything so far pointe...

The four years spent at the academy were nothing more than a distant memory now. His parents had guided him to Starfleet with the hopes that he would be able to start a new life. The search for this new life brought him here, to this place and this ship.

Jayson thought that the name of the ship was ironic. Anubis was the Egyptian god of tombs and ruler of the underworld. A jackal-headed beast who lea...
