    Re: Peltas Five Station

    Tali will greet Talok and Draven, though it seems a matter of personal preference that she doesn't shake hands or exchange any sort of physical contact during the greeting. She'll listen to the briefing and what they're looking to construct.

    "Well, the prototype, or short-range one, seems simple enough. Applying it to something that will stretch across space, that's another story. But then, as Shepard is fond of saying, nothing ventured, nothing gained. Shall we?"

    "That makes sense, then," Kaidan remarks. "These do seem a lot like our mass relay system, though on a much smaller scale. And without the drive core to back it up," he concludes with a chuckle.

    Mordin watches the stargate dial and remarkably, doesn't flinch when the wormhole activates. "Fascinating. Self-contained matter transportation unit." He brings up his arm and his omni-too flares.

    Kaidan clears his throat. "Doctor, that's not why we're here."

    "Yes, yes." He doesn't look up from the screen and keyboard, tapping a few things. "Making notes for later study. Not my field but certainly worth investigating."

    The major just shakes his head, taking Mordin by the arm and escorting him up the ramp toward the gate. He finishes whatever it was he was noting before lowering his arm and staring at the shimmering wall in front of him. Overall, the Salarian is rather expressionless but those closest to him can see his eyes flicking over the surface. He takes a deep breath and will step through when indicated. Kaidan is a little more in awe of the structure, especially standing in front of it and being dwarfed by the bulk of the gate. He grins a little before he steps through.

    "Lil's gonna be so jealous."

      ((KK, making a reply then new thread then.))


      Talok remained silent, though he did appear to the Major to be quietly chuckling. When Mordin was ready though, the Wraith nodded.

      "Then let's go through. You may want to have an auto recording feature on that device, it might be capable of generating a reading from within the wormhole."


      Then they were going through, Talok vanishing first. Upon entering the wormhole, there was a brief moment where there was nothing, as if they'd fallen asleep ....

        ((Going to go ahead and do something I've discussed with Siphon, so it'll be ready to go when the first mission group returns.))

        Not long after the group passes through the Stargate, and it shuts down, the station's long range communications array would pick up a message. Although the message was horribly garbled, due to some manner of interference, it seemed likely that it could be at least partially reconstructed. In fact, three message fragments came through clear enough to be made out.

        "...tor Ryan Paxton..."

        "...riolic radi..."

        "...ty, stay awa..."

          The comm officer on duty immediately got in touch with Julia, who, after listening to the message, began working on trying to reconstruct what she could.

            It took quite a while, but eventually, most of the message was able to be reconstructed. Oddly enough, it seemed to be almost akin to a distress signal... Aside from the content.

            The image shown in the message appeared to be of an adult human male, dressed in what appeared to be some manner of scientific protective gear. However, his face was badly mangled by apparent chemical, or perhaps radiation, burns. A strange interference seemed to be blocking parts of the message, and the station's systems couldn't seem to filter them out.

            "Thi... ...Doctor Ryan Paxton of... ...ation. Whoever can hear this... ...ease, for your own safet... ...ay! Our station commander attem... ...ess triolic radiation waves. The safeties failed and the facility is fl... ...th hazardous energies! I re... ...or own safety, please stay away!"

            During the last part of the message, Paxton seemed to be struggling, and at the end collapsed, as if having passed out... Or more likely, expiring from the exposure. Right before he did, though... The image shook, as if something had exploded.



            ...Oddly enough, attempts to back-trace the message ran dry after the message seemed to have bounced between several supposedly inactive communications relays.

              By the time that had been finished, word had come in the Nasara was on it's way back. Looking at where the relays were, Julia sighed.

              It was a ways out there, the Nasara being the closest ship with ease. They'd have to pass very near it on the way back anyway, making the decision easier for her. She gave the order to contact the Nasara, and ask them to look into it, forwarding the message so they knew what they were getting themselves in to.
