Timeline: Right After Balrog Disappears
Where is Balrog and why?? Other crew member: Lt. Jamie O'Connell
Ideas: Phase Distortion or Alternate Timeline?
After his shower Jamie dressed himself in a clean uniform and grabbed his multitool and placed it in his pocket. His Father had given it to him as a present upon graduating from the Academy. He had told him " any Engineer worth his 'salt' always keeps this on his person at all times ". Although he hadn't really used it all that much, he knew that someday this tool may very well save his life.
Jamie realized that he hadn't eaten in awhile. Maybe something with potatoes sounded really good. Stepping to the replicator he announced " Potatoes, Cabbage, and Ham - boiled." Shortly he had a delicious hot meal in hand and sat on his couch to enjoy his meal.
Suddenly the lights went out and he heard a voice calling "Lt. Jamie O'Connell". "Yes" he replied and at the same time realizing that his Communicator had not gone off.
Jamie woke up lying on the floor in a haze. He forced himself to come to his senses as quickly as possible. " Where the hell am I!" he thought to himself. He got to his feet and stood for a moment to get his balance.
Looking around he knew that he was not on the USS Independence anymore. Although something seemed a little familiar. As he started walking around, he remembered why this area seemed familiar to him. When he was at the Academy, they had taken a field trip to Star Base 715. Although not all the Federation Star Bases were exactly alike; they were similar in design and this area seemed like a Cargo Bay of some sort.
As Jamie was walking around something caught his eye, movement of some sort. Walking towards the movement he realized that it was some sort of "shimmer" in the air. " That's odd" he thought. Then a little further away he saw someone jumping up and down and waving his arms. As he walked towards the person he could tell that it was another Independence Crewman. When Jamie was within thirty meters of the person he hit a wall. Not a "forcefield" or he would be picking his butt up off the floor; but more of a clear polycarbonate wall. When he tried to walk against it, his feet kept moving but he was not getting anywhere. It was like he was walking in place.
Jamie happen to look up and saw a sign that the Crewman was holding. It read "I'm Lt. Brooks Balrog who are you?" Not having anything to write on or with, Jamie just turned and walked away hoping that he could find something that he could make a reply sign with.
Hope this fits.
