Yeah, "quantum tunnelling" - outside of spacetime, therefore "timeless", hence instantaneous communication across HUGE distances. Beyond
Federation technology at this point too. That works. Good catch.
Right now we have Penelope on total lockdown (and dead in the "water"), Studious locked in sick bay, neno thinking he's up on charges locked up in
the brig and crazy as a bedbug to boot, Capt. Luder either still in engineering, or a corridor, or the brig (not sure of his location at the instant
of lockdown) also thinking he'll be up on charges, and not even knowing why, Acting Cpt. JohnQ on lockdown in engineering, and Theresa on lockdown
"in the wild", Thor only knows what she's up to, everybody else on lockdown on the bridge. On top of that, we got NO comm, not even runners, hence
no way for Seeker to notify any of us "victims" that he located a mind-control brain-wave sweep of some sort That MIGHT get us off the hook. AND if
any more brain-scans come in, Seekers either gonna blow US up in a thermic fireball, or blow THEM up in a thermic fireball.
That about sum it up for Penelope? Right about now, neno's thinking that being stranded in a trackless, planet-wide jungle, dining on uktena ribs,
might not have been as bad as he first thought
Why, oh why, did he ever give up the mercenary trade and sign on with the Federation Space Service?
Getting shot at daily on a regular basis wasn't really all THAT bad, now was it?
My dear old dad TOLD me there would be days like this!
edit to add: the hull breach lockdown was a masterpiece. We may be unable to move, at all, but neither can we cause damage. Imagine our confusion,
though! And how is EITHER of the Captains going to issue any orders? Somebody has some figuring to do. Neno's going back to sleep on his prison
