OOC: I'm going to push just a smidgen forward and wait for any ideas
from Veronique's player.

OOC: Very damned handy to the GM right now! Thanks!

The portal is still there, though the connection is much weaker, more of
a "station-keeping" mode. The unit is drawing from some sort of internal

As Vesper picks it up, he feels it heating up again, and begin to move
slightly in his hands. The effects of the CO2 are clearly wearing off. A 
bucket is quickly found big enough to put the orb into and when it drops 
in Vesper senses the dimensional connection now the thinnest of threads 
as its power levels drop off. For the moment at least they have the orb 
contained, and the hole in the hull has been temporarily dealt with. 
There's still the matter of whether the reactor should be restarted to 
see if the ship can be moved.
