Kurai Yuki Kishimoto
An event horizon had just opened up a few thousand kilometers away from Miranda as the KISH0103 Gabe-I-El transited into the neither /here/ nor /there/ of subspace. “Bring us to Warp 2 Gaia.” The Captain commanded her vessel from within her Research and Development Lab. “Lay in a course for the Sol Station. And hail Kaler, it’s about time that we touch down on the first planet.” While she did that, the Kishimoto woman had something on her work desk that looked to be a drill bit. While Outpost Lucifer was getting back up and running right now, the redhead had six days now to find to find something valuable to prove the funding the Space Initiative was receiving. That drill bit was made out of Zorrillium and Tritanium, and theoretically it would power itself forever in the heat of planet one. The A.I would ring Kaler’s omni-tool, and when he picked up Kurai would answer. “Hey Kaler, you busy? I’m on my way to you.”

Kaler Eland

[Meanwhile, the embers of light radiating off into the unknown in all directions was glistening to its usual unheard chorus of wisps and energies. Way down on the surface of the Sun, strange bird-like creations, and almost demon-like bodies moved around the magical plasma, so far not disturbed by the space station in orbit; a lucky chance perhaps. On the inside, the few but various scientists and other members of the station were going about their daily tasks, some huddled up in the part-engineering labs doing yet another test on what they could obtain from the Solar Object itself. Kaler himself was checking in on the progress, when he picked up the hail on his Omni-tool. He moved himself into a corridor before answering, taking note that it were Kurai again] Hey Kurai! N-not too busy actually, g-got another mission thing for us to do? [He enjoyed those, like when he went with her and Possi to Planet 4]

Kurai Yuki Kishimoto

“Yep. I got something of a mission/errand thing to run and it’s going to get particularly /hot/.” Kurai responded as both of her hands worked diligently over her drilling device. There were a few more of these around the lab, sitting in their upright positions and all ready to be used. -Dropping out of Slipspace in 3…2….1…- There was a small ‘clunk’ throughout the ship as the Gabe transitated from non-space to real space.-Sun shields activated. Solar panels active and at 100%- The A.I stated as it exited a three thousand miles away from the Sol Station and came up on a slowish decent. “I need to set the foundation for a Kishimoto mining colony down on planet one and I was wondering if you could go down there and put some tech of mine into the ground.” Kurai was a few minutes away from docking with the Sol Station as the Gabe asked permission from whoever handled the docking to come aboard.

Kaler Eland

Ohh I see, hot? T-that shouldn’t be a problem at all for me, I’d be happy to assist. [Once she got out of orbit, her distancing from the Sun had her vessel within sight of the Sol Station, which sat neatly still before the shining orb, which thanks to the shields and obvious modified glass to both station and ship, would allow for quite the spectacular sight, the surface flowing and bubbling with raw, untamed and practically endless energy. A rugged voice, one of male and possibly beast-species origin sounds over the communications for docking] #Hailing starship Gabe, this is Sol Station docking control, approach at your current speed and dock at port 4, sending mechanism key code now, over# [That would let her ship safely dock with the multi-purpose extendable docking ports, the one tabbed “Port 4” blinking with obvious green lighting, even when in the overbearing light of the sun, which would attach to wherever the airlocks on her ship were. Kaler moved towards said docking port, still speaking to her through the tool] Ahh, t-that’s what you mean by warm, righty. Sounds like a plan!

 

Kurai Yuki Kishimoto

“Awesome. I’m more surely willing to compensate you for your time.” The redhead replied the the Gabe-I-El was on autopilot, Gaia and Aether working in concert to direct the ship into docketing port 4. Right before the airlocks locked together, Kurai rushed out of her lab and off passed the bridge and into that catwalk in which the airlock was. She wore her pilots suit, a futuristic space suit complete with its own fishbowl helmet The pathways sealed together with a sudden hiss, her atmosphere merging with that of the Sol Station as the Gabe-I-El officially docked for its first time with this station. The Kishimoto woman quickly made her way onboard, stopping to gander here and there; scanning certain points with her omni-took all until she reached the Sun Child.

Kaler Eland

Aheh, thanks Kurai; i-it’s no real trouble, but I’ll accept if you insist. [He wore a smile on his features, before again strolling through the various corridors to reach Kurai inevitably. The airlock fastened itself on securely, the hissing of air followed by that of idle background chatter, likely over a station-wide speaker, something along the lines of: “Docking secure, bays 1, 2 and 3 test point barings, maintenance crew move to hangar 1, auxiliary…-”. Really it were just a series of typical station chatter, for the various people who moved around in here. The corridors were a white/grey/orange mix of shades here and there; she would pass by what looked like a Gymnasium facility, along with a lounge/mess-hall style area, and a few various beings moving here and there, each either humans or a few different species and sub-species. Eventually their paths crossed, not too long away from the docking port, moving right towards the Kishimoto] Hey Kurai! Welcome aboard the Sol Station, aheh.

Kurai Yuki Kishimoto

“Heya Kaler.” She responded with a nod after looking around a bit. Ending their communication via omni-tools, Kurai faced the alien face to face. “Not a bad station you got here. Lot more people than I first thought.” Kurai wasn’t one to work in a large outfit like this, she preferred either a small group or solo if she could help it. “I wonder what kind of engine your using to be this close to our star without being pulled in.” She mused, her technological mind never at ease when in the presence of so much tech. “Forget that. More importantly. Thanks again for your help, are you ready to go? You can either meet me there, or come onboard the Gabe. Whichever.”

Kaler Eland

Aheh, thanks, i-it was a collaboration between me and s-some people from Twine actually, as well as some other third parties coming from Hellifyno. [He gave a little glance about along with her, two beings passing by the pair, wheeling a cart which seemed to have some technological equipment with them, testing units, and a large, tightly secured vat of something glowing, and sun-gold] I-It was something I thought was a good idea, t-to try and study the Sun a bit better, a-and find a way to use the energy for other means. I-It also serves like another home for me, trying to get better with my powers… [He took a moment to look at his hands, fingers flexing softly, before glancing back up. Truth be told he sometimes forgot the specifics, but either way he gave a gentle chuckle, and nodded] N-no problem at all! Ah, we can head off now sure. [He smiled warmly, moving to follow her through the station and the docking tube, into the Gabe eventually]

Kurai Yuki Kishimoto

Kurai led the way back to the Gabe, with Kaler in tow. “Well I took some scans and saw that there’s a lot of extra bleed of energy pouring off some of your equipment. I doubt it’ll ever be a real problem consider you have like infinite energy harnessing potentials, but I’ll see if Gaia and I can come up with a more efficient power matrix for you.” As she spoke they walked onboard the Gabe-I-El, and straight to the Helm. Kurai took the controls and had the Sun Child stand behind her as she uncoupled with his Station. “And speaking of efficient energy supply. Have you considered maybe a suit to help store /more/ ultraviolet rays? Meaning you could be /standing/ in the sun for a while after departing its surface. Or it’d be particularly useful in a no sun situation.” Kurai just loved to talk tech and science, jumping from one idea to the another in rapid succession.

Kaler Eland

O-oh, there is? Ah, g-guess we must’ve missed some of the essential addons during construction. [The base was about as high-tech as any station out there. It could do all it needed to do and got the job done, but likely wasn’t the most 100% efficient place around, and this identified it] Ah, t-that’d be a good idea, thanks Kurai. [He enjoyed listening to her talk of tech actually, facts in general always enjoyable to listen for this inquisitive alien. The uncoupling was successful, the audio chatter from the station similar to before, this time signalling that un-docking was successful, as the tube sunk back nearer the stations hull. He stood behind her at the controls, glancing around before the next talk of techy things] O-oh? Ohh, s-so like I’d get more energy absorbed, hmm… w-whilst I’m not one for wearing suits often, t-that sounds cool actually; sure! We could always give it a try eventually. [Kaler did already have an effective solution to the whole no-sun problem, signified by the bulge of a sword hilt in his right pocket, however this suit would probably increase that potential]

 

Kurai Yuki Kishimoto

The frigate backed up a bit, creating a series of gravity wells with mass effect fields until they were safely out of range of the Sol Station. With that the ship did a 180, hard to port as Kurai manually piloted the 215 meter ship. “Well, it’d be less like a suit, and more like… underclothes? Or a jumpsuit? I got some ideas, and I can design and shape it any which way that’ll make you more comfortable.” Kurai decided maybe this is how she was going to pay Kaler for his time? Regardless she kept on task, though this was more job to her than exploring on their present course. “Gaia. Lay us in the quickest, direct route to the first planet. Warp 4.” -Yes ma’am.- The ship shifted by .7 degrees as the engines fired up mor, sending the ship forward at just under light speeds. “We’ll get there in a few minutes. This way please.” She turned on the autopilot and guided Kaler down the catwalk, around the center table of the Bridge and through the one door into the R&D lab. With two hands, she scooped up the heavy drilling device off the table; and with great effort handed it to Kaler. “Dis!” She stated through strained breath. “In certain places on the surface. Easy enough right?

 

Kaler Eland

[Kaler took the time to watch out of the viewing window before them as they pulled away from the station, its blinking lights of few colours; mainly blues and greens to vary from the oranges and golds and whites of the Sun; fading away into the light as they made their way back out of the orbit-path the station was in, away from the solar orb] Ohh…. underclothes sounds cool. I-I think I find over-suits uncomfortable sometimes, s-so wearing that should be just fine, aheh. [Now all that they needed to do was paint it blue red and yellow, with an ‘S’ for good measure, har har. He didn’t seem to notice the difference in on-board AI voice from the previous Cortana at first, as they powered through the vacuum at high speeds] Ah, sure thing. [Through the ship with her he went, past tables and steps to said R&D lab. First thing he took note of was that large, super-sized industrial drill, which definitely seemed heavy, as per her heaving to get it to the boy. In a rather comedic way, once she handed it over, Kaler seemed to handle it with a severe lack of any visible effort on his part, despite a momentary grasp of how it felt, lifting it and just looking along it curiously] Sounds like a plan. [He nodded with a smile] I-I wonder what those metal creatures will be like…. h-hope none of them are aggressive. [He’d be able to handle them, but would prefer no needless attacks of sorts]

BetaBee

*A transmission comes through to the Gabe-I-EI, coming from a Hammerhead Corvette in orbit around Hellfinyo* Professor Kurai, this is Dr.Grant, I would like to have a conversation, I think you would be very interested in what I have to say.

Kurai Yuki Kishimoto

Kurai laughed in between breaths as the boy just one-handed the heavy device that took all of her strength to pass. “Haha /ha/. Thanks.” She admitted, heavy lifting was not in the redhead’s wheelhouse. The Gabe stopped so smoothly that neither of the onboard passengers could even tell until Gaia spoke out again. -We are now in orbit above the first planet. Gravity is measured at 3.7 m/s, or about 1/3rd Hellifyno norm. The evacuation site is about 437 degrees Kelvin(163c) and rising fast as the planet nears its day cycle.- “Thank you Gaia.” With that, Kurai pointed to the other mining devices, there were about six of them. Luckily each one of them was like a handle, and Kaler with his obscene strength could probably handle the lot of them like a bunch of grocery bags. “Alright. I’ll send the location to your omni-tool. Whenever your ready, feel free to walk out of the airlock.

Kurai forwarded the transmission through her omni-tool into her personal headset. “Yo. This is Kurai.” She responded to Doctor Grant’s hail. “What’s going on Doc?”

BetaBee

*Dr. Grant seems to be quite tired* I believe I am ready to begin the augmentation procedure… And I think I can help with your fuel problem.

Kurai Yuki Kishimoto

“I don’t have a fuel problem Captain.” The Kishimoto woman had no idea how’d he get that idea. “Also. If you’d like, before you operate. I can take a quick look at your operation procedure, give your patient the best chance to survive the operation. I got a few minutes to spare right now…” While Kaler did his thing.

BetaBee

 Ah, you misunderstand, I wish for you to be there during the operation.

Kaler Eland

[Kaler couldn’t help but end up chuckling along with the redhead; it were true just how surprised some people wound up being whenever Kaler pulled off an unintentional feat of super-sized proportions, be it moving at incredibly fast speeds, surviving space, lifting these sorts of things, etc. He sometimes wondered if there just weren’t that many others like him out there, but oh well, back to matters at hand] A-aheh, no problem. [Kaler took note of their arrival, and once the announcement was made, he swiftly got together all 6 of the mining tools together, three on each hand to carry with him for the moment as he made his way out of the R&D lab] Sure thing Kurai. [With that, he went about moving through the ship with each of the 6 drills, moving to the airlock. For a moment he paused, thinking over something, before pressing a few icons on the hologram screen of his Omni-tool. After a moment, with some quick thinking and ingenuity, he managed to fabricate two things: the small mask-like patch of suit so he could communicate with her in the vacuum, and 6 hooks on a belt that circled his waist, which he used to fasten each drill too. With that done, out into space he went! It didn’t take long for him to steadily reach the planets warm, rapidly baking surface, as he checked over his Omni-tool to determine the exact location to plant each of the 6 tools; and also, he’d look around curiously for any sign of metallic beasts, spotting a few in the distance]

Kurai Yuki Kishimoto

“Uhhh. Hold on Doctor.” With that Kurai placed Dr. Grant on hold as she paid more attention to what she was doing here. She cycled Kaler through the airlock, syncing in on his omni-tool as she watched him fly through the vacuum of space; shaking her head. She was a bit envious of the alien, her having to put on her massively expensive space suit to be able to survive the conditions of space, and still probably wouldn’t survive reentry to most planets. Soon Kaler would find himself directly on the precipice of an equator on this atmosphere-less metallic planet. His tool would show him a several hundred foot area in which to place the drills. Once he did the device itself would trigger, spinning to life as it would bury itself a few inches below ground and just covert the heat and pressure into energy, waiting for the champion of Twine to place the other drills when he could. Animals of sorts roamed the lands, mindless though so if he stayed out the way he was sure to go on unmolested. ” Good job Kaler. Now make sure to place them at the exact coordinates. They are supposed to shape out a rough box…”

Then back to the Doctor. “Sorry about that. Now here’s the deal. I’ve been through surgeries like that before and I know how lengthy they can be. As I said before, I’m not in a current position in which I can watch this undertaking. The best I can do is make sure your procedures look good really… I’m sorry I can’t help more, it’s just my hands and resources are tied up.”

BetaBee

*Grant sighs* I completely understand Professor, I’ll send you a copy of the procedure plans and hopefully will be able to show you the finished product…

BetaBee

*Grant taps a few buttons on his data pad, a file detailing the procedure is sent*

Kurai Yuki Kishimoto

-File transfer received.- Gaia stated as the documents in question were sent to her by direct data transfer. “Alright… Give me…. 20 minutes and I should be able to get this back to you with my notes.” Luckily there wasn’t much right now for the redhead to do as she watched Kaler’s work down planetside, she could give this document a side glance and add her thoughts to it.

Kaler Eland

[It could be safe to say that Kaler didn’t take for granted sometimes just how useful his abilities were. In a world, and now a Solar System of both commonplace tech, and mystical death-defying magic, it could be said that he was ready to assume that a lot of beings had means of working their way in the vacuum. At least he had before, but it was clear to him now how much of an advantage he had when it came to this stuff; it made him smile as he soon enough reached the planets metallic floor, feeling it from his trainers as they made impact, but not a loud one, being mindful of what she said; he’d want no trouble from the mindless yet so very curious beasts of metal] R-righty, give me a couple of minutes here.. [And to work he went, first off placing drill number one down into the solid ground, watching it spring to life in an instant as mechanical whirrs go off soundlessly in the atmosphere-less vacuum. With that done, he went about with the other five, planting them virtually on-point with the required coordinates. As he did so, gladly it seemed the animals didn’t respond to any vibrations the drills gave off, so he proceeded onwards, until every drill was properly embedded within the planet’s surface] A-alright! All drills in place Kurai. [He called via the tool, or the mask from the tool, either way. Before he did make anymore movements, he did notice something odd. One of the metallic animals had come closer. He would’ve been afraid of confrontation… had it not been the size and shape of a rabbit, with the curiosity to match. Did it take a liking to the boys natural body heat, even with how warm the surface really were? Even so, Kaler knelt down to see if he could get a closer look. It didn’t seem too startled, rather it “hopped” a little closer, just… watching each other for the time being] Hmm…

Kurai Yuki Kishimoto

“Alright Kaler, stand back and watch if you’d like.” Then she flipped a single switch and activated her recently developed mining protocol. The hanger bay of the ship opened up to release what appeared to be a long sort of missile shaped device, but with a much slower rocket booster and no warhead. With a series of small fiery bursts, the object repositioned itself directly on point with the center of the drill devices and fell towards the planet using its own gravity. A few hundred meters above, the missle broke into six equal parts then came down and nestled on top of the drill bits. The devices each were pylons of machinery inside of glass sheaths, syncing with the drill bits and absorbing the built up energy until they finally started! First things first, a field came out in a 30m bubble around the site; altering the mass of everything inside until it was Hellifyno normal. Then each of the pylons emitted three beams of light that came together and started to form actual matter, and very slowly Kaler could see the beginnings of a buildings exterior walls. Hopefully the metal bunny wasn’t in the way of the mass effect field, or the sudden change in weight would pin it to the ground.

Kurai Yuki Kishimoto

Over the period of about 20 or so minutes Dr. Grant would receive his files back, along with a few of her own recommendations. “I would suggest ceramic over metallic for the inside of the bones, so they can still be porous enough for the marrow to replace any lost red blood cells.” There was a long string of number and letter for carbide ceramic ossification catalyst drug. There were a few other suggestions there too, fibroid muscular protein complex for increased muscle mass, retina-inversion stabilizer for increased sight and colloidal neural disunification solution for increased reaction time. “Some of this stuff might be a but pricey and complex, but it worth it for the overall efficiency and life expectancy of your soldiers.”

Kaler Eland

Sure! [He responded after a little bit, having been partially distracted by the rabbit for a few minutes before she spoke. At first, Kaler turned upwards to view the spectacle beginning to unfold, watching the rather slow, missile-like object beginning to plummet downwards towards his location. In a brief but settled panic, Kaler had managed to get the rabbit-like creature out of potential harms way before it landed, in fact he even held the creature in his hands for now. It seemed a bit spooked at first, but seemed to quickly liken itself to Kaler’s skin, nesting there for now. Meanwhile Kaler stood by and watched the process as it went about its programmed phases, so it seemed. It was quite an astonishing sight to behold really, at least to him; how the tech came down in such a formulated sequence, before quickly coming together and changing the mass and matter of that one section of land he stood watching over, from a small mound] Woooow… i-it’s making like, an entire few buildings in one go, aheh! [He chuckled through the Omni-link communicator, observing the area before looking back up to where the ship would be, high above the planet] Shall I come back up? O-or anything else that needs doing?

BetaBee

*Dr.Grant views the file* Huh… thank you very much Professor, I will most certainly use your recommendations, I hope to talk to you again after the procedure.

Kurai Yuki Kishimoto

“You can come back up when you want. The rest of the progress it automatic and should take… by my math, another 2 hours and 17 minutes.” Kurai had adopted some technology from a certain metal hedgehog, energy to matter converters. Now while the original purpose was to create massive weapons to be used in combat, it was reprogrammed to create ultra-dense heat/cold proof metal and craft a Kishimoto mining outpost. With this she could recover her own resources and start providing resources to Kishimoto Incorporated for other projects. “You have no idea how much help you’ve been.” Kaler didn’t know this, but he pulled Kurai’s ass out of the fire.

Then to Dr. Grant. “Yeah, send me updates when you can. I’ll give it a look. This is Kurai, over and out.”

Kaler Eland

Ah, sure thing, I-I’ll be a few minutes at best. [Kaler said, before taking another brief view of the area as the constructs were fabricated to life slowly, and carefully. And then he looked back down to the metallic bunny. It really was an oddity, just so un-real yet here he was holding it in the palms of his hands! The creature bared resemblance to any common rabbit, albeit with a few shape-differences thanks to the surprisingly fluid/bendable metal it was made from. It had strangely blank eyes, if you could call them eyes, though it seemed to understand where it was and what it was doing, even going so far as to nuzzle at the sun child’s skin. This brought a happy chuckle from him; he’d have to see if they were able to survive climates other than this; the hopefully future wildlife study place Twine was making on Planet 6 could perhaps have a look at it sometime. Even so, he wouldn’t remove it from its natural home, so for now, he knelt down and let the creature hop off back to wherever it decided to go next, after a brief period of almost clinging around near Kaler. The words he received from Kurai brought a sheepish chuckle on his part, even a practical shade of pink on his cheeks] Aw, a-aheh, no problem at all Kurai really. I-I’d be happy to do anything space-related, just…. being out here is so peaceful sometimes… [He did have the added benefit of standing around in the vacuum unharmed and all. But with that said and done, he took off from the surface and returned to the ship, entering through the airlock and proceeding to the bridge, where he assumed she was still]
