[The video clicks on to show a familiar face and a familiar cabin! Trip's wearing his usual blue Enterprise uniform, with red stripes on the shoulders and three rank pins, which put him at Commander for anyone familiar with Starfleet from the 2150's.

He smiles, friendly and looking somewhere between relaxed and kind of eager to just jump right into this thing, which is why he gets right to the point.]

This is Commander Charles Tucker the Third. Most people call me Trip. [Seriously, he will not respond to Charles, go with Trip. B(] The Admiral's asked me to work here as a warden, and when I'm not doing that, I'm the Chief Engineer on board the starship Enterprise.

I've tried to do some catching up on the network, [And he might be planning on ripping apart his comm later, just to see how this works.] but if there's anything people wanna offer as advice or stuff to stay away from, lemme know. No offense to anyone, but the Admiral kinda needs to work on his welcome packet.

And I don't wanna step on any toes or anything, but considering I've spent the last three plus years doing this kinda thing basically every day, I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to help out with the engines on board. I'm also pretty handy with anything else you need taking apart or putting back together.

[And once again, TO BUSINESS. Does everyone get assigned an inmate right off the bat?] Felix? You got anywhere in particular you want to meet up and chat?

[Trip click on the video feed and is uh. Honestly covered in black soot. But he's grinning and doesn't look injured or anything, and this is normal enough, so the only people who should be freaking out are freshmen and anyone who had something being worked on in one of the school's labs because uh yeah.]

If anyone's got time, I could use an extra hand down in the lab fixin' up this mechanical dragon. Anyone who knows how to use a soldering iron'd be good, the enchantment whoever put on it back when it was made hasn't really responded well to havin' someone try to use magic on it. [Which is why he's all sooty and explains that loud BOOM you all probably heard a while ago, sorry about that. :c]

[Open Spam for the Lab]

[Trip's just going to be working away in the lab during his free time today, wrestling with the pretty large iron dragon which occasionally still spits out flame that... then needs to be put out before the fire alarm goes off. It's a fun project, and he's been having a good time with it, but the lab's starting to smell a little. Singed.

Anyone walking by will be hearing a series of bangs, cracks and small explosive-ish sounds, which isn't really
unusual around here, but it still probably worth taking a second look at, so long as you're careful actually coming in the lab.]

[ooc: Trip Tucker's a senior in Mongoose, who is basically "that kid who's always causing explosions in classes that don't even have thing to blow up". He's actually really smart, but just has lousy luck and doesn't really know when to stop pushing the limits. He mostly hangs out with the other nerdy kids, but likes to try and encourage them out of hiding in the lab and go to Quidditch games and stuff like that.

Tags will be coming from [personal profile] tripliketriple.]

I guess that was an interesting breach. Kinda weird to be that excited about Christmas, though. I'm not sayin' I hate it or anything? But it's not that big of a deal for us, I guess. Not all that many people are still into religion where I'm from, so people really just celebrate it with their families and friends and stuff. Same thing goes for a lot of old Earth holidays, actually.

Still, it's always kinda fun to visit the past, even if it's not actually us runnin' around investigating stuff. I woulda liked to spend a little more time taking apart some of the computers around the house then decorating for the holidays and accidentally offending my non-Christmas celebrating friends.

[ooc: This is before Trip gets infected with the physic crazy going on, because I wanted him to put this out there before he becomes crazy pants. <3]

So, I'm the only one left on the Maintenance and Repair crew, and while I'm pretty alright with handling things by myself as is, it's a decent way of killing a couple minutes a day if something breaks, and it's a good learning experience for any inmates looking for something more productive to do with their time.

I am gonna have to check with your wardens to make sure they're alright with it, but otherwise, if anyone's interested, let me know and we'll try to figure out a way to make it work.

[There's a sharp squawk of static before the transmission starts, and while there's the occasional garbled word, most of it's audible.]

So Jim and I ripped apart my communicator, and whatever's goin' on with the network, it's nothing actually wrong with the devices, that I can tell. Mine's still workin' like it should, except that it's... not.

And in case you were curious, Capa, we're both still alive. [He's teasing you. WHY SO WORRIED, CAPA.] If anyone wants me to take a look at theirs or somethin', I'd be happy to. Who knows, we might get lucky and figure somethin' out.

And for anyone who's wonderin', the engines are still workin' just fine. So whatever's goin' on, we're still movin' along, things mostly as usual. If any of that changes, we'll let you know.
