Expanding the Defense

Posted on 18 Jun 2020 @ 6:18am by Captain Akio Tachibana & Lieutenant Commander T'Lara & Lieutenant Commander Iria Taltos

Mission: Ohuna - The Secret
Location: Holodeck - Deck 4
Timeline: 6 Mar 2389

Iria worried the inside of her bottom lip between her teeth as she went over her proposal for the Captain and Commander T'Lara she had been going over the hammerhead torpedoes designs and had expanded on designs to help them be more effective during battle.

She had asked for a meeting with them in the holo-deck to allow her to show the details easier as well as the written details she had on PaDD's, she was reading over to be certain they details made sense and to make sure she hadn't slipped in any language that wasn't appropriate for the readers.

The holo-deck program running was a circular table with screens around the room showing different designs, she had a cup of double chocolate hot chocolate and peppermint sprinkles. There was a cup of spice tea compliments from Yeoman Grayson and tea for the Captain as well.

The door whooshed open as Akio entered.

T'Lara came in a little behind Akio. Her face straight as always and her arms just loosely besides her sides as she walked in.

T'Mar had the bridge.

"Lieutenant Commander," Akio said, greeting the Engineer.

Iria gave both, her signature cheeky grin of greatings. "Captain, Commander, thank you for agreeing to join me in the holo-deck for this."

"Of course, once we heard there were weapons improvements, we are certainly interested," Akio replied.

T'Lara just gave a nod agreeing with the captain. This was her first time in command, she is a doctor and there were moments she felt really out of place, specially in her new uniform. And now she was presented with this case, which in her opinion would be more suitable for T'Mar, from the looks of it. She could maybe could do minor things in engineering, but weapons, that seems to be more for an Armor chief. She would just watch presentation and see what happens.

Iria grinned cheekily and nooded towards the feeds that circled the room, "Well I was going over Kosu's designs for the Hammerhead torpedoes and I remembered that there had been some issues encountered when using them, so I have been trying to come up with ideas to supplement the use of the Hammerheads, the names are playing on the same theme but we can change them if you think it's a good idea."

Akio looked at the screens. "I am not so much concerned with names, yet more interested in the performance improvements. Are these simulated figures?"

Iria nodded, "Yes these are all simulations only after several trial and error runs of possible outcomes. I wouldn't start on these without permission."

"These improvements are promising," Akio rubbed his chin. "I think it would be quite interesting to test this under controlled conditions and PFY would be the perfect place. I'll have a word with the PFY Command Team to see if they're interested. Judging by these numbers though, I would say that's likely."

Iria nodded, "So I can get a few test torpedoes prepared or do you want me to wait until we have official word of okay from the fleet yard before I get started?" Iria didn't want to jump the gun but if she was allowed to start she would do so, if she had to wait that was fine as well.

"If you have the resources to create test models here, please do. Or get them ready as much as possible as we will only have a couple days at PFY," Akio answered.

"This all looks promising, but my expertise field is medicine not weaponry and engineering. Perhaps you should conduct your tests with Lieutenant T'Mar, since she is our Chief Tactical Officer we can assume she has more experience with this," T'Lara suggested.

Iria nodded her head, "I was planning to send her information as soon as I have clearance from you both, since it's seems to be the case. I will forward her the current speculation and designs. Maybe she'll have other suggestions or comments for modifications?"

"Great thinking, number one," Akio nodded to T'Lara as he turned to Taltos. "That works for me. You'll at least have some time to calibrate the weapons to both of your liking before we arrive at PFY."

Iria nodded her head and made another copy of the proposal to another PaDD to give to T'Mar when she saw her next. "I will get this cleared up and keep you both informed of the progress."
