I believe he is talking about a detail i remember reading in the fantastic story "The Saga of Emiko Station" by @Just Jim where it was explained that kerbs often get their names from a compound of their parents names. For ex: Thompberry comes from Bruberry and Thompington.

therefore, @RocketMan-Explorer is suggesting names for thier kids.

P.P.S. I ship Kerny and Maxbas. (Maxny?) (Kerbas?!) ;)

Aaand... now I get it! It took me a moment to remember that detail, but once you reminded me of it... I think that was one of our early side-conversations. And I never put much thought behind using that as the reasoning behind Kermen names. But this does pose some interesting, ahem, issues. @Just Jim and I are pretty good friends; and I have borrowed and played with some of his story lines. In fact, in a few of the earlier chapters, you discover The Saga of Emiko Station is actually a claymation television show in their Kerbiverse. And in certain screen captures, you'll see "episodes" of Emiko Station being watched. Oh, and Gene isn't a fan at all... :D

Can’t wait to see how Kerny is going to react to the rebuilt ship..

Oh, don't worry about this... it will be in the next chapter. And I think one of the images will answer all related questions. But sorry, can't share it yet. But I am planning to sit down and write the next chapter tomorrow.

But there is a warning - the next few chapters will be a lot slower paced. You cannot hurry spaceflight. Oh, and I've got too many other things happening in orbit to speed up the game too much. But I think it will add to the realism.

"
Dammit, Dr. Angelo is right -- "
Chapter 66

I have been awake now for almost two days! And to think, this time yesterday I was being briefed by Dr. Zarkov about what to expect on this mission. Once I was finally back in space, things seemed to slow down a little. The Dauntless wasn't in space long enough to achieve a standard orbit of 100 kilometers. Once the external tank was jettisoned, the shuttle's crew immediately began to prepare for our rendezvous with the Excursion.

7W07EY5.png

Commander Bartbree changed course and gave a thirty-second burn on the shuttle's main engines. Once the burn was complete, the shuttle rolled over and banked hard to the port side. The shuttle's technology was more advanced than the craft I've flown in to both Minmus and the Mun. These burns were similar to orbital maneuvers used by craft preparing to rendezvous and dock with another space craft.

"Captain," Commander Bartbree said. "There she is. You can see your ship from here."

Looking out the front window of the shuttle, I noticed the small point of light, now growing larger by each passing moment. Whether it was the reflection of Kerbol's light off metal or the lights of the ship, there sat the Excursion. This is what it is all about. This is what it means to be the captain of a ship in space.

"Ok, Captain," Bartbree said. "I've got to do a few more controlled burns to get us in position."

And with that, the ship moved out of our view. A warning klaxon began to fill the command deck with sound.

"Don't worry, sir," Catlin began to explain. "It's our proximity alarm. It is set to go off anytime another vessel is within 150 meters of the shuttle. We're that close to the Excursion."

"Dauntless, this is Excursion Control," the familiar voice of Karloff called out. "You are cleared for docking..."

"Roger, Excursion," Catlin answered. "We are beginning docking procedures now."

sw8mp1K.png

Pi38fCd.png

I listened to the frequent chatter between the shuttle's crew and the Excursion - my ship. The only additional sounds on the command deck were the whirring of the monopropellant pumps which were feeding the various RCS thrusters along the shuttle's exterior. Catlin had turned off the proximity alarms and was now calling out the distance from the Excursion's docking port we had been assigned to. Then it happened...

zEdHTBs.png

*clunk -- tonk - tonk - tonk - tonk -tonk - tonk* The familiar sound of docking ports magnetically sealing the two ships together. 

"Excursion, this is Dauntless. We have hard dock," Catlin reported. "Please confirm."

"Roger," Karloff replied. "Hard dock is confirmed. Welcome aboard, Captain!"

A few seconds later - what seemed like minutes, the hatch of the shuttle opened. And on the other side of the crew tube was Commander Karloff, waiting with a big smile on his face.

"Sir, welcome aboard!" he began. "What do you..."

"What?!" I began. "What do you mean 'minor changes' to the ship?!"

"Sir, as I told you in the last dispatch," he began, a little embarrassed. "I thought you were -- "

"My gods," I said. "She's beautiful - but besides the exterior -- "

"Captain," Karloff interrupted. I really hate being interrupted. "Dr. Angelo is waiting for us in the briefing room -- "

"What briefing room?" When I left the ship it didn't have a briefing room. But I have a feeling this is just one of the changes I would encounter during this mission.

"This way, sir!" And with that, Karloff and I headed down the main passageway, mostly unchanged, to the newly improved area of the ship. I think he called it the 'primary hull' but am not sure if that's what it's actually called or just what he's been calling it. About two-thirds of the way down the passageway, he opened a hatch and motioned for me to follow him. There, in the dim light of the conference room was Dr. Angelo!

hVeZKLo.png

7ZCyfSQ.png

I took the open seat to the left of Dr. Angelo, Gilti and Karloff took the two seats to my left. After five minutes of hand shaking and catching up, it was Dr. Angelo who began to lead our impromptu meeting.

"Captain," he said. "There's been a lot of changes to your ship over the last ten days. Unfortunately, there were some things we were not able to finish -- "

"In spite of him stuffing ten of his top engineers into a cargo pod in space suits!" Karloff interrupted.

"Yes, in spite of that," Dr. Angelo continued. It was obvious the thought still amused him. "They were in pressurized space suits, they did fine!" And with that, he and Karloff began laughing nearly uncontrollably.

vIsi4RF.png

"Captain," Karloff interjected. "You should have seen it! That cargo pod docked with the Zebulan and as soon as the cargo pod doors began to open, there were Kerbalnauts all over the place! We spent the next half hour just trying to get everyone into the station. It was great! Until -- "

"Yeah," Dr. Angelo began. "You get to go out for a while and come back. But when I leave here, I get to face Gene!" And with that, a new round of laughter began. "I can just hear him asking me, 'Dr. Angelo, you do realize cargo pods are for cargo and not Kermen?"

"But you know," I added, "he'll be right. How are you going to explain it and not get on his bad side?"

"I'll just tell him I 'borrowed' ten of his pressurized suits. They were completely comfortable -- as they could be in a cargo pod!" And with Dr. Angelo's answer, we were all laughing again.

dFRnx0y.png

"Now on to more serious matters, Dr. Angelo," I began, still laughing. "What the hell did you do to my ship?!"

"Ah, yes..." Dr. Angelo was trying to talk through his laughter. "Ah, yeah! hahahaha! You did notice! Well -- "

I was no longer laughing. "Yes, I did notice. The command pod of the ship looks -- "

"Yes, Captain," Karloff began, still trying to suppress his laughter. "It's an all new command deck. It's more functional for missions -- "

"Yes, Commander," Dr. Angelo interrupted, no longer laughing. "As I was saying earlier, there are still some things which are not finished on this vessel. But because of the emergency rescue mission, Gene thought it important to get you underway as soon as we could. In fact, the shuttle I am leaving on will be leaving in a few minutes."

"Ok," I asked. "So what's so important that you wanted to meet here? Why not just give me an instruction manual?"

"Because I wanted to tell you things about this ship Dr. Edmund didn't want made known to everyone, especially the Prime Consul. There's an all new communications system and there's a new high frequency system designed to make certain communications more, well, secure. The engineering section is new; you have two types of engines. The standard vector engines remain as they are. The other three were changed out with a newer design that has two separate modes. The engines are -- "

"Untested, Captain," Karloff was no longer laughing either. "They are some sort of nuclear -- "

"Did you say 'nuclear'?" I began to ask.

"Yes, Captain," Dr. Angelo interrupted. But before he could answer, the communications panel in the conference room came alive.

"Captain," I immediately recognized Hildi's voice. "The Tsoolik is requesting permission to re-dock. It seems one of our new crew members forgot to get off the shuttle."

"Permission granted," I replied. "Ensign, until we are finished in this meeting, you're in command!"

"Uh, sir?" she responded. "Are you sure you want -- "

But before she could finish her question, I turned the communications panel off. I needed answers from Dr. Angelo about the changes to this ship.

"Kerny," he began to answer, his voice full of defiance. "The engines have nuclear reactors built into them. Now they are more efficient than your traditional LOX rocket motors but there's a trade-off in specific impulse, known as Isp -- "

"What type of trade-ff, exactly?" I wanted to know. And as captain of this vessel, I have a responsibility to the crew to know.

'Well, the engine is extremely more efficient but it does not generate the thrust. It doesn't need fluid oxy to run. It uses the electricity from nuclear engines to -- "

"How much is the reduction?" I asked.

"About a 40% reduction, but you can get nearly three times the distance on the same amount of fuel. And should you choose not to use the experimental built-in reactors, there is another set of reactors mounted on the side of the ship. And in case of an emergency, those engines can be jettisoned without risk to the ship."

"But once they're ejected -- "

"The new engines will revert back to their standard mode and will require liquid oxy to generate thrust." Dr. Angelo finished. "In the future, the next generation of ships will be able to collect particulates from space and convert them to ore -- "

"And captain," Karloff excitedly interrupted, "will be when we can literally make fuel on the go! But Dr. Angelo says -- "

It was obvious Dr. Angelo didn't mind interrupting others but hated others interrupting him. "I explained to Commander Karloff as I am explaining to you - the Excursion will not be refitted with this technology. It will be a part of the next ship class design. This is one of the things Dr. Haywood, Dr. Zarkov, and Gene are taking to the Grand Council in a few days. They want to override the objections of the Prime Consul. And if we are to succeed, this mission must be a success -- "

"Not the only reason it needs to be a success," my anger was showing. And I did interrupt. "I have eight others on this vessel who are depending on this mission to be a success. And that doesn't include the three in the Discovery!"

"There are other changes, too." He continued. "As I mentioned, there are changes to the communications systems. There are major changes to the surveyor sensors - there are more of them and they are more sensitive.

Dr. Angelo had pulled up a series of images on our screens. It was time to brief us about what the changes in the ship's design meant for us while on this mission.

hXs4aW7.png

"As you can see, Captain," Dr. Angelo began, "this new navigation system is more complicated than your old one. From the very start, we've designed this ship to go beyond Kerbin's sphere of influence. But this rescue mission gives us the prime opportunity to test her capabilities since Prime Consul Katrine has said no manned Kerman exploration will happen beyond the Mun."

"Yes, Dr. Zarkov mentioned something about that," I answered. "He said that the he had enough pull and support in the Grand Committee that if the rescue mission should take us out -- "

"Ah," Dr. Angelo added. "I don't need to hear the rest. I'm satisfied in what he told you. And to be honest, I'd really like to avoid that fight. The further I can keep her away from my company and the construction areas, the less I have to explain anything she encounters that Dr. Edmund told me not to include in the 'officially submitted' craft files. You know how the Grand Library has plans for every type of vehicle ever produced. And to be honest, I don't trust the Prime Consul -- "

"Let's change the topic, Dr. Angelo." I offered. "We don't need that kind of stress among the rest of the crew right now -- "

"I say let's set her up," This time it was Gilti who was more than angry. "She hates the KDF and she wants to dismantle the space program. I was visiting some of my friends at South Prairie Station. Right now, it is a small science research station at the base of the Southern Mountain Ridge. They've been informed the science research station will now be under the authority of the Committee on Colonization and Settlement. It's just -- "

"As you were, Lieutenant!" I interrupted. "Right now, we need to get as much information about this ship as we can. This mission must not fail. Dr. Angelo, will you continue?"

As we continued the discussion about the new engines, the capabilities of the ship, and the added crew accomodations, the STS Tsoolik had begun docking procedures. As the two vessels grew closer together, we all knew what would happen next. And just like we expected, it happened. We could hear the slight bang as the docking ports came into contact with one another and the magnetic lock sequence began.

"Now Captain," Dr. Angelo said as he got up from his chair, "it's time I let you and your crew get underway. As you can see from what your own MechJeb Navigation System is showing as course recommendations for the mission, you'll be rendezvousing with the Discovery IV in about four days - give or take."

"Yes, Dr. Angelo," I said. "Gene told me a little about the new navigation systems. But also told us not to get too comfortable in letting it do all the work."

"I agree," he added. "Just remember it's there if you need it, but there still may be some bugs in it" And with those words, Dr. Angelo dismissed the meeting and I escorted him to the airlock of the waiting STS Dauntless. As we were approaching the central core, we ran into the nearly absent and newest crew member, Petty Officer Hudfurt. For this mission, he'd be the ninth crew member of the Excursion.

"Welcome aboard, Petty Officer -- " And it happened again. Before I could even finish my sentence.

"Sir!" Hudfurt replied. "I don't know what I was thinking! I can't believe I fell asleep -- "

"Go make sure you report to Commander Karloff," It was my turn to interrupt. "He'll get you settled in." Now I turned my attention back to Dr. Angelo. "Doctor, I know I will have more questions about the refit -- " And yes, it happened again. Cut off in mid-sentence.

"Kerny," he began, "There's a lot we've changed about your ship. I'd love to go with you on this mission to see how she functions. But Gene and Dr. Haywood were very clear - they're planning to defy the Prime Consul and take their appeal directly to the Grand Committee. May the gods preserve you and your crew. We'll talk again."

And with that, I watched as he climbed through the docking ports and into the Dauntless. The docking port doors sealed with a loud metallic popping sound.

"Captain," Karloff's voice called out over the intercom. "Dauntless and Tsoolik are both requesting clearance to undock."

Reaching over to the small communications panel on the wall of the corridor, I pressed the transmission indicator button. "Commander, go ahead and clear them. Begin preparing the Excursion to get underway. We need to go."

"Aye, sir!"

T6P42a8.png

JvcN3C6.png

The muffled sounds of the magnetic clamps detaching could barely be heard over the ventilation system I continued down the central corridor, essentially the ship's spine, beginning from the engineering section and running the length of the ship to the bridge. By the time I got there, my regular command crew had taken their new places. Since their shuttle had arrived about two hours before mine had, Dr. Angelo and Karloff had shown them each the basics on operating the new systems. 

"Captain on the bridge," Commander Karloff called out. He was the first to see me. His engineering station was to the rear of the command deck and across from the science and communications station.

"Carry on," I said as I looked around the new and spacious bridge. It was at least three times the size of the old command pod which once served the same function. Dr. Angelo was correct, the new bridge actually would allow the ship's crew to function as a single team. It was a bit overwhelming and exhilarating to see that no longer would I be sitting behind a computer console as ship's captain. I now had a station of my own.

To my left, Lieutenant Obion was manning the helm of the ship. Although Gilti was listed on the ship's manifest as the primary pilot of the Excursion, she's shown interest in getting a cross-disciplinary rating in science. She's currently sitting at the sciences and communications station, monitoring the messages from the space center and tracking the departure of the two shuttles from our immediate area. Lieutenant Obion doesn't seem to mind; it gives him more time at the Excursion's helm.

"Captain," as if she could read that I was thinking about her, "our sensors and the KSC confirm both shuttles are now at least 100 meters away from the vessel. We are clear and free to navigate."

"Thank you, Lieutenant." In one of the data pack messages from Bobak while on assignment, I read that Gilti has been selected for a fast track promotion. Once she has another two months as a lieutenant and she's finished her cross-disciplinary training, she will be promoted to lieutenant commander. But she's not the only one who is trying to achieve a cross disciplinary rating.

FJc0DG5.png

QHRoGoC.png

Ensign Hildi, our ship's scientist and chief medical officer, is seeking command deck certification. So while Obion is sitting at the helm, she's at the navigation station. According to the way Dr. Angelo explained it, the navigation console is where the MechJeb Navigational System is programmed. There's a variety of ways this station works. Using the ship's sensors, the Kerbnet satellite network, and the gravitrons from Kerbol, the navigational system plots the best course once an object is selected. In theory, the course will be the most efficient possible. Even now, she had managed to begin plotting intercept courses for the Discovery IV. What is even more impressive is this new system has even plotted the course of the runaway capsule.

uMmFTLH.png

"Captain, all stations report ready." Karloff said. "We are ready for your orders."

"Ensign Hildi, plot an intercept course," I ordered.

"Aye, sir." she replied in a near giddy tone. "Course has been plotted and transferred to helm."

"Lieutenant Gilti," Karloff called out. "Send a message to the Zebulan. We are preparing from Kerbin-orbit departure."

"Aye, sir." Before I could give my next order, she already had another update. "Both KSC Tracking and the Zebulan acknowledge."

"Very good. Lieutenant Obion," I said, pretty sure the rest of the bridge crew felt the same excitement I did. "Let's go. Take us out."

ojtF0Vh.png

nDNywL8.png

3yBN3nU.png

"Aye, captain. Engaging main drive and NERTAs in 3... 2... 1..." Obion called out. And within a split second, we were officially underway.

dVWMWuI.png

"Captain, our speed is now 748 meters per second," Obion called out, "and increasing."

"Engine status is nominal, captain." Karloff responded. "Ship's systems are reporting engines functioning within normal parameters. Dammit, Dr. Angelo is right -- "

"Our speed is now 1872 meters per second, Captain." Obion added as an afterthought, "and still increasing."

This is an all-new experience for all of us. Where the Excursion had once felt like a repurposed Mun Explorer system, the refit made her feel more like a space ship. There were more changes we will discover as this mission unfolds.

"Karloff," I asked, "what's our fuel status?"

"Captain," he said. There was an apparent smile in his voice. "According to the engineering station's readouts, at our current speed of 2,749 meters per second, we have eighty-seven percent of our fuel remaining. Do you want us to try the other engine mode?"

"Not yet," I said - with reservation. "Hildi, what's the speed of our target?"

"Captain, I'm showing they are at a constant of 427.4 meters per second. At this speed, we will be within 10 kilometers of the Discovery IV within four days." Hildi explained. "The MechJeb system is recommending cutting the NERV engines and using the older engines for another five minutes, but on half-throttle."

"Make it so, Lieutenant Obion!" I said, out of some sort of reflex.

"Aye, Captain." he replied. Immediately we could feel the vibrations within the ship decrease as the NERVs were shut down. One thing is for certain. Space flight is nothing like what's portrayed in The Saga of Emiko Station. Those ships always point in the direction of their target. But as we learned from the previous missions of the Excursion, it's always better to allow the ship's SAS and RCS to aim you towards the direction of the next maneuver node.

iJdOSKj.png

OV4quxY.png

iI1xA5e.png

"Captian, we're now at the speed needed to break orbit." Hildi began. "At our current speed, we will break free of Kerbin's sphere of influence within six days. the MechJeb Navigational System is recommending surpassing our target and approaching it from that trajectory. As we get closer to the projected rendezvous time, I will be able to tell you more. Our next maneuver node is in one day, two hours and twenty-nine minutes."

"I concur, Captain." Karloff had always been one to double check any navigational data used on our missions.

And with that, we now had our plan to rendezvous with the Discovery.

dLFx2em.png

EpccRFD.png

I know this mission is of extreme importance to the space program and the crew of the Discovery IV. But there are some things I must do while on this mission. Now since we are underway and the next maneuver node is in a day, I have gone to my old quarters. The new Captain's quarters are nice and spacious and easily accessible from the bridge. But right now, accessibility is not what's needed. A while back, Dr. Edmund gave me a data stick and told me to only view it when I was back in space. It's time to find out what's on that data stick. And once that's done, I need sleep.

Yay, I'm leaving Kerbin's SOI in an untested refit of the Excursion which includes completely new and untested engines, a reactor, and more dangerous things! Wait, why does that sound so bad?

In reality, it did happen. I thought I had transferred everyone to the Excursion and discovered I had left the newest member of the crew behind. I even discussed it with @Just Jim about how I had taken a few screenshots which were beautiful but couldn't use... and well, he urged me to leave them in. And at that moment I realized it could be fun...

I started a game and I had a randomly generated Kerbal named Adsi Kerman. So I went into the config and modified it so his name was Adsii Kerman.

@adsii1970 consider this my tribute to you. :wink:

Spoiler

Adsii became the first Kerbal on Mun, Minmus, Duna, Laythe, and my as-of-yet-unknown-named orbital space station. Like the real @adsii1970 he's really going places.

Just wanted to let you know the next chapter is coming soon. I was hoping on getting it posted last week but between university comittments, family stuff, and some "odds and ends" things which needed to be done, I ran out of time before I ran out of items on my to-do list. I have a few more shots I need and then I will be able to write another chapter...

By the way, @RocketMan-Explorer, great summary...  :D It is nice to know you guys are ready for more!
