Going To Help

Posted on Fri Oct 22nd, 2021 @ 10:54pm by Captain Mystery Ellis

Mission: Settlers
Location: Planet Surface
Timeline: Current


Mystery had watched the reports coming in from the planet and the more she read the more she wanted to go. Changing into jeans and a T shirt Mystery headed for the transporter room. Stepping onto the PADD Mystery nodded to the operator “Beam me down to the settlement.”

“But captain, your not taking security along? Are you sure that’s a wise move?” the operator asked

“You have your orders ensign,” Mystery said

“Yes sir,” the ensign responded shaking his head as he carried out Mystery’s order

Planet Surface
Mystery materliazed on the surface of Astra, looked around and smiled, the day was sunny, a few clouds in the sky, a nice breeze was blowing. “I could get used to this.” Mystery turned and headed toward the settlement. Several of the buildings were already up with more needing to go up.

The head settler spotting Mystery walked over to her “Captain what a pleasant surprise, what are you doing here?”

“It’s rare when I get off the ship. My science chief is working on the samples she took and they look promising,” Mystery said “I’m here to help, I know my way around tools. Where do you need me?”

“Commander O’Connell has been doing plowing and helping getting buildings up. He mentioned getting the houses up as we’re sleeping in makeshift structures,” the man said

“Well then that’s where I’ll start, can you get a couple of your people to help and we’ll get a couple up,” Mystery offered

“Your people have been so nice,” he said as they headed over to where some of the other settlers were putting up houses. “This is Captain Ellis, she’s here to help.”

Mystery picked up a couple of tools, “Please call me Mystery, where do we start?”

“Well Mystery, here is as good as any,” one of the settlers said as they set to work putting up some walls and solar panels. “You married?”

“I was once,” Mystery replied

“If you don’t mind my asking, what happened?”

“It was a long time ago and we were kids. We divorced a couple years later, I joined Starfleet and last I knew about him he’d been in one scrape after another.” Mystery commented as she finished hooking up the solar panels “This one’s done, it feels good to actually get my hands dirty again.”

“Thank you for your help,”

“My pleasure, I’ll be back tomorrow to help more,” Mystery said “Hopefully my science chief will be along too, she’s found something very interesting and I think it will be good for all of you. I’ll let her explain.”
