laelaps ep1 scene 1[scene opens in a viewing port of STARBASE 157. CAPTAIN PANORLISSAN SH'ZARATH, who is obviously part aenar from her skin colouring, is stood looking out of this viewing port at her ship, the USS LAELAPS. the ship is mostly visible from a slight top angle, displaying the name and registration clearly. it is not an overly large ship, but large enough to be obviously an exploration class and looks very much new. a few small crafts, inspection pods, are cicling. as she admires her vessel, she is joined by COMMANDER AREV KHELLIAN, a romulan ship captain dressed in his uniform. SH'ZARATH notices his approach but does not turn to aknowledge him, watching him from the corner of her eye as he moves to stand beside her.]laelaps ep1 scene 1 by Destinye
KHELLIAN: she does not look at lethal as I know she is.
LISSAN: (plainly) good morning commander khellian.

LISSAN: my ship is not designed to look lethal.
KHELLIAN: of course. it is wise to have your enemies not know the true

LISSAN: are we ready?
GRIFFITHS: captain karlassa is responding. i'm waiting on commander khellian. (SH'ZARATH raises an eyebrow as if surprised) got him now, captain.
LISSANH: (settles herself into her seat) on screen!
[on the view screen, COMMANDER AREV KHELLIAN appears on the right, and CAPTAIN KARLASSA on the left, with a divide down the middle. both are on their respective ships. KARLASSA is stood near her chair, on the raised platform, and KHELLIAN is sat, though less comfortably than SH'ZARATH.]
LISSAN: captain, commander.
KHELLIAN: (he offers a nod) my greetings captains.
KARLASSA: are we ready to go?
LISSAN: almost, captain. while i wait to finish the prelauch procedure-
laelaps ep1 scene 4[scene opens on the bridge, a round structure with two exits, one leading to a turbolift and another to the captain's ready room. the bridge also has two chairs in the centre, for the captain and xo, with a console at the front for the pilot, which is currently manned, and one each side of the bridge a circular console with an opening into the main bridge. in one of those consoles, LIEUTENANT MAISIE KING, a humanoid with noteably fainter spots than the average trill, is tapping at her station rather idly, obviously not doing anything of major importance. she has her pale blonde hair brushed over to one side. she pauses, and then leans forwards across the front of her console towards the helm, where ENSIGN DURAAK, who slowly realises she is watching him and turns around to face her in his chair.]laelaps ep1 scene 4 by Destinye

KING: then what are you doing now? (pause, DURAAK looks down as he tries to
laelaps ep1 scene 3[scene opens in an empty bar. a barkeep sweeps past, collecting up glasses from the front of the bar. on a table, a dark haired man, LIEUTENANT JUNIOR GRADE SASA VILOTIC, in casual clothes, is asleep on the table - two glasses audible clang, VILOTIC twitches and wakes, sitting bolt upright and shaking his head to bring himself to his senses; he then looks down to where LIEUTENANT LITHYLOUSJAJORANS is draped in a rather uncomfortable looking position across a couple of chairs. VILOTIC spin around, catches the time, which displays 08:01.]laelaps ep1 scene 3 by Destinye
VILOTIC: (quietly) lithylous (pause, raies voice slightly) lieutenant? (gives LITHYLOUSLAJORANS a light shake) lieutenant lithylouslajorans sir!
[LITHYLOUSLAJORANS cracks open an eye, shifts and promptly falls to the floor. VILOTIC jumps, eyes widening in surprise]
LITHYLOUSLAJORANS: sassssa...! (he reaches his hand up, VILOTIC pulls him up, it becomes obvious that the winged alien is taller than the human. VILOTIC looks at the time on the all display,
