OOC: Posting as Commander Wedlerson aboard the Raven ...

He was sitting in 'Ten forward' several piles of PADD's strewn across the table and surrounding floor. The Steward's had long since given up trying to get the ever-present Operation's Officer out of his seat and back to, well, anywhere ... Harry looked out of the panoramic plexi-glass window's at the USS Sagen, slightly below them, and alongside her the USS Emeritus. Both ship's had been abandoned since the arrival of the Raven. He had seconded several of the Engineering team and sent them to both ship's hoping to get their cores on-line. This done, he had started work on a means to get through the seemingly impenetrable barrier surrounding the complex on the surface. A Lieutenant entered 'Ten Forward' heading straight for Wedlerson. He spoke quietly for a few seconds then stepped back barely in time to avoid getting knocked off his feet as the Opps Officer headed out.
Stepping out of the turbo-lift he went straight to the Engineering Station:
"What do you have ?" he asked the Assistant Chief Engineer.
"Well ... If we have this right, I think we can combine the sensor array output from all three ship's, if we can synchronize frequencies it should be possible to get a signal through the barrier. It won't be much, and if whoever is down there get's a hint of what we're trying to do, we can kiss the idea, not to mention our chances of getting out of this unscathed good-bye ... Sir." Milyanov replied.
it had taken them three day's to find the frequency of the implant in Cali's head, and even now, no-one was completely sure there even 'was' such a device. It had been rumored of course:
"OK ..." Harry said, moving down to the Command Seat. If he was going to make the decision's then he needed to be sat down while doing it he decided, "Contact the Emeritus and Sagan, tell them to rotate and align deflector array's. Tell them to increase their orbit in line with us ... Helm, increase orbit and establish a Geo-stationary position over the complex." He sat in silence as the two massive ships on the view-screen began to rotate until both were facing the Raven.
Less than fifteen minutes later, the three ships, in a loose triangular configuration, held position thirty five thousand kilometers above the surface. It was now or never. He ordered all deflector array's brought on-line and synchronized. When Milyanov confirmed it was done, Harry nodded ... The Communication's Officer tapped out three pings, on her panel. Similar to the 'ping' used by twentieth century submariners to establish distance to another object, this was used to confirmed a signal was received. They waited a few moments then Harry ordered the test repeated. Unbelievably there came a single ping in reply !
The Bridge erupted in cheer's until Wedlerson calmed them down. It was the first step, and thankfully, they had not been detected from the surface yet. He turned to Milyanov, who shrugged then said they could only try. Harry ordered an audio channel opened directly to Commander Valenti's sub-dermal implant:

=^= Confirmed =^= Calli said, looking at Blakus as her head filled with static.
"Is there 'ANY' way I can talk to them !" Andae whispered urgently, realizing he needed to get access to his Engineering Teams, if he could talk to them directly he may be able to help from this end somehow ..........
