*has comm duty, as Hoshi hadn't showed up to relieve him, thought she was due to do a normal shift again*

*sees a message coming in on the official frequency*
*thinks it's a bit odd, but still records it and starts to decode it*

*notices it's missing the usual security settings that accompany an official message*
*is puzzled*

*listens to it, a lot of it is garbled, but it's definitely Hoshi Sato's voice*

"[...]for the NX Enterprise and Captain Jonathan [...] we're alive [...] in the twelve months [...] home soon. Sato, Hayes, Tanner and Kelly - out."

*calls the captain while he tries to enhance what he hears in the background*

::just entered Ready Room for before-lunch work, wants to get things done so can have a little 'uninterrupted' time with Charlotte for a father-daughter meal, which seem to come very infrequently nowadays::

::eyes hold on comm as hears Baird's voice calling in... so much for 'uninterrupted', oh well::

Yes, Mr. Baird? ::to self, under breath:: Please tell me it's not life-threatening, I need time with my daughter...

Sir, we got a call on the official frequency. Only it's not official - apparently it's from Ensign Sato.

(OOC: since it's been soooo long for any kind of threading/continuity, we're just winging it. Even if it's odd. Go with the flow. Get back into the swing of things. Creative license, that kind of thing. XD)

::raises an eyebrow::

Ensign... Sato. ::puzzles, must mean outgoing:: ... and a call to HQ requires my attention how?

No, Sir - it's coming from Ensign Sato. She's sending from somewhere on the official frequency. There's something very odd about that.

::frowns... Baird's usually on top of things, not prone to being confused::

::takes a moment before replying::

From.

Where, somewhere else on the ship? Just comm her.

I can't reach her, Sir.

From what I found out so far, the signal is coming from somewhere outside, though I wasn't able to determine where exactly. If I understood her correctly, she's not on the Enterprise, but somewhere else with three crewmembers.

...

::leans on desk::

Outside?? ::this is getting ridiculous:: What do you mean, not on the ship?

::turns to computer, does a search::

Both shuttles are in bay, no one's requested use... Delta Flyer is still onboard, I don't understand.

Me neither, Sir, but apparently her, Tanner, Kelly and Major Hayes are somewhere else, according to her message.

I don't have any evidence, Sir, but the way the signal's transmitted, plus Ensign Sato saying they've been gone for a year... this doesn't seem right. And even if Mr. Rostov could tell me one of the voices in the background is Mr. Tanner indeed, I still would doubt that we would find them where the signal is leading us to.

But the signal is leading us... there. ::runs finger onto screen::

You don't think it's accurate? Or... god help us with these PIFs, maybe wherever they are things have been... skewed...

::starts to get a bad feeling about this, but avoids jumping to conclusions::

Spit it out, crewman. Give me your best gut instinct.

No, it's accurate - this is the best I can give you, Captain. I just... I just couldn't help wondering if this is a trap.

To lure us to that position? We'd be like sitting ducks.
