Lt MaryJo: +Keane+All right..

SLtKeane: +Mary+ "Love you. Keane out."

LtCdrAkira: Ursal> No, no, no! I'm not going to the holodeck! 

CmdStecker: ::looks around:: Kang, vhy did Herr Kaptian call me to the bridge? 

Amb JainaB: I havve successfully helped hostages out of  bad situations...many times.

EnsKiapen: ::checks Mary's position again..nursery.::

Lt MaryJo: +Keane+Love you too...

CptnThorne: I'm counting on you to get him out of this... but know that we will use force if necessary.

EnsKiapen: ::heads down to the labs::

LtCdrAkira: Ursal> This is why they invented sleep! Because your going to run out of things to do

Lt MaryJo: +Kiapen+What is your location, Ensign?

SLtKeane: ::John smiles and looks around to check that all the sec members are ready::

SuliRufian: :::shakes her head as she sighs::: This just isn't my day....

Amb JainaB: ::nods:: I fully understand...I will work with the best of my ability..

EnsKiapen: +MaryJo+ I am heading for sceince lab 2, ma'am, why?

LtCdrAkira: Ursal> and resting your eyes for 8 hours takes up that time...

EnsKiapen: ::enters the lab, checks computer::

CptnThorne: All right.  Dismissed.

LtCdrAkira: Akira> Nonsense... sleep is for the weak... 

Lt MaryJo: +Kiapen+I need a briefing on the work you've been doing with the

Lt MaryJo: DCPP computer database..

EnsKiapen: ::looks at a nice pole against the wall::

EnsKiapen: ::cringes::

LtCdrAkira: Akira> I've done this a few times before... it'll be okay...

EnsKiapen: +MaryJo+ Understood

Amb JainaB: ::after hearing dismissed, smiles lightly:: Aye, sir..::small wink, turns::

Amb JainaB: ::walks out::

Lt MaryJo: +Kiapen+I'll meet you there shortly..

CptnThorne: ::smiles slightly::

LtCdrAkira: Ursal> I haven't... longest I've been up was to finish that programming project in Comp Sci.

CptnThorne: ::waits a few moments::

LtCdrAkira: Akira> Oh really, what was it?

EnsKiapen: +MaryJo+ Understood

Lt MaryJo: ::walking down the corridor::toward Science 2

EnsKiapen: ::quickly turns on the computer::

SuliRufian: Well.... at least the officeis now secure.

LtCdrAkira: Ursal> Some computer game...

EnsKiapen: DCPP> Hello, good morning.

LtCdrAkira: Akira> Computer game?

Amb JainaB: ::moves back to her chair, and plops down, very carefully of course::

SuliRufian: :::begins scanning and completing some basic reports::::

EnsKiapen: ::types: No, its not.  If you want to live, you will speak nothing of dreams::

EnsKiapen: ::reads: Why?::

EnsKiapen: ::types: I will explain later::

LtCdrAkira: Ursal> Oh it was a study on those old war games... we had to analyize the code and the

CptnThorne: ::Walks on to the bridge:: Report.

SLtKeane: ::leans against the wall:: ::tapping foot::

EnsKiapen: ::reads: Did you have a dream?::

LtCdrAkira: Ursal> merits of such a game and the programming technology...

EnsKiapen: ::types: I will explain later.::

LtCdr Kang: We are being hailed by someone..sir.

EnsKiapen: ::turns off the computer, and pretends to be feeding the monkeys::

CptnThorne: On screen.

Lt MaryJo: ::walks into Science 2  :::looking for Kiapen::

LtCdrAkira: Ursal> We based our study off a game called Command and Conquer, Tiberium Sun... or 

LtCdrAkira: Ursal> something like that...

EnsKiapen: ::sighs, deciding just to tell MaryJo about what happened before

EnsKiapen: yesterday::

LtCdr Kang: ::puts it on screen::

EnsKiapen: ::turns around:: Hello Lieutinant. ::smiles::

Amb JainaB: :::takes a deep breath, knowing what might happen if things go wrong::

Lt MaryJo: Good morning Kiapen..

EnsKiapen: ::throws some food into the last cage:;

CptnThorne: This is Captain Seamus Blackthorne of the Federation Starship Atlantis.  Identify yourself.

EnsKiapen: So, what would you like to know about DCPP?

Amb JainaB: ::looks to the viewscreen::

Lt MaryJo: Tell me about it.

EnsKiapen: ::casually walks over, looking at the computer::

Lt MaryJo: How does it work.  What are you doing with it?

EnsKiapen: Well, its is a complex, and indeed insane computer program...

SLtKeane: ::Looks around:: Hmmm?? Where??

CmdStecker: ::absolutely as far away from everyone on the bridge as she can get::

EnsKiapen: It works on many of the same principles of the human brain...

LtCdrAkira: WNS Cptn> I'm Captain Nathaniel Hacker of the War Nations Vessel Evangelion...

SLtKeane: +Keane to SuliRufian+ "What's your location."

EnsKiapen: it can make assumptions, has emotions, and does not always

SuliRufian: :::wonders if anyone inthe department knows how to file:::

EnsKiapen: understand rational reasoning

SuliRufian: :::jumps:::

LtCdr Kang: ::looks at Kristi::

EnsKiapen: I have simply been studying more in detail the paterns of its "thinking"

CptnThorne: Explain your actions.

LtCdrAkira: Hack> ::appears on screen::

LtCdr Kang: ::walks over to her::Is there something wrong?

Lt MaryJo: ::groans::  and what has it been doing lately?

SuliRufian: *Keane*  Ruffian here.... I'm currently in the security office.

EnsKiapen: It has been complaining mostly... about being trappped.

Amb JainaB: :::looks to the captain of the other ship, narrows eyes just a bit::

CmdStecker: ::looks at Kang:: No, nothing ist wrong. 

SLtKeane: +Ruffian+ "Good. Get to the armory and prep for AT duty. Then get to TR3."

EnsKiapen: I have been trying to deleat most of its files on such feelings

EnsKiapen: and wishes though..

LtCdr Kang: Are you sure, you seem..to have something on your mind.

Lt MaryJo: oh yes?  ::raises a brow::  and how has that been going?

EnsKiapen: Not very well... its emotion files are imbedded very deeply into its program...

SuliRufian: *Keane*  Yes, SIR!

CmdStecker: ::jaw clinched:: Nothing ist wrong, Kang.  

LtCdrAkira: Hack> Ambassador Chen is being treated well...

EnsKiapen: there are hidden files and backups all over.

EnsKiapen: and it realizes when files are missing, but refferences to them

EnsKiapen: in other non related programs...very annoying

CptnThorne: I'm sure he'd find much better treatment in the Federation Council, where he belongs.

SLtKeane: ::smiles:: "Hey.. No sitting on the Tranporter padds." ::Walking over to an Ensign::

EnsKiapen: <but = by>>

SuliRufian: :::jumps from the chair and heads for the armory::::

Amb JainaB: ::looks to her husband, thinks "Don't be too sarcastic"::

LtCdrAkira: Hack> I'm afraid I can't do that Captain Blackthorne... not until our terms

LtCdrAkira: Hack> have been met...

LtCdr Kang: ::nods, and walks back over to TAC::

EnsKiapen: ::smiles, hoping the Chiefs curiousity has been alliviated::

SLtKeane: +Kang+ "Lt. Commander?"

CptnThorne: I'll let you speak to our Ambassador aboard.  ::nods to Jaina::

Lt MaryJo: Couldn't you attach a self replicating virus to them, and every time it

Lt MaryJo: references one of the files, it will then delete them also?"

Amb JainaB: :::stands, walks over next to her husband, looks at the viewscreen::

LtCdrAkira: Hack> I believe this is to be settled at the neogicating table on Betazed?

SLtKeane: +Kang+ "Sir. Any estimates on resistance should we be deployed?"

EnsKiapen: ::nods, solumnly:: there is no knowing how many files that would deleat..

SuliRufian: :::grabs and signs out suitable combat wear and a phaser rifle:::

EnsKiapen: besides, that takes out most of the challenge...

Amb JainaB: It is, but, there is nothing wrong with pre-negotiation contact.

Lt MaryJo: But you could write the virus...to only pull those files associated

Lt MaryJo: with the emotions..

SuliRufian: :::double times it to TR3:::

CptnThorne: ::moves aside so Jaina can do her job, surrepitously walks over to Kang at TAC::

EnsKiapen: ::sighs:: Im not sure if you have had a chance to look at

EnsKiapen: the computers file layout...but almost every file is laced

SuliRufian: :::arrives there, slightly breathless:::

LtCdrAkira: Akira> ::nods::

LtCdr Kang: +Kang+Not sure...but use caution.

EnsKiapen: with emotion algoritems or refferences

Amb JainaB: ::trying to get a sense of what the captain of the other ship is thinking::

LtCdrAkira: Ursal> HA!!! Your falling asleep!!

SLtKeane: *Kang* "Understood."

CmdStecker: ::leaning with her back against a bulkhead::

CptnThorne: <w>  Mr. Kang... what's their defenses look like?

Amb JainaB: May I ask, what "terms" you were referring to?

LtCdrAkira: Hack> :;thinks something obscene to annoy the ambassador::

EnsKiapen: it would change the DCPP too drastrically to just pull those files anyway...

EnsKiapen: any other DCPP problems wont stem from computer programs

Amb JainaB: ::blinks her eyes, but keeps a straight face::

EnsKiapen: without emotions

LtCdrAkira: Akira> No! No! I'm not falling alseep! 

Lt MaryJo: I see...

SuliRufian: :::slips in the door and looks about:::

Lt MaryJo: Hmm...

LtCdrAkira: Ursal> ::pleading:: Tell Yukawa we quit!!!

Lt MaryJo: Well, continue working on it Kiapen..

SLtKeane: ::Looks over as Ruffian runs in:: "Nice to see you could make it.."

Amb JainaB: ::patiently waits for his answer::

EnsKiapen: ::suddenly has a horrifying thought... have I been programed to protect

LtCdrAkira: Akira> Not over my dead body!!

EnsKiapen: this computer???!::

LtCdr Kang: <W>they have alot of fire power sir..seem like they have added on to thier ship.

SuliRufian: :::has the good sense to look embarrassed:::

EnsKiapen: ::nods sharply, turning away::

LtCdrAkira: Hack> We'll discuss those on the surface, ambassador... 

CptnThorne: <w> Can you see a way to get a boarding party aboard?

EnsKiapen: ::walks back over to monkey cages::

SuliRufian: :::mutters something about a faulty alarm system:::

LtCdrAkira: Hack> ::shuts down the comm::

CmdStecker: ::looks at Blackthorne like he's lost his mind::

SLtKeane: ::smiles:: "You'll be on Beta. I've got Alpha. I want you to lead Beta" (a test?)

Lt MaryJo: But first, Kiapen..

LtCdrAkira: ::looks at Ryan:: Prepare a team, we're heading down...

Amb JainaB: ::opens her mouth to respond, then sees it go off:: Hmm..

EnsKiapen: Yes? ::not turning around..::

LtCdr Kang: <w>I need some help with science to cause a distraction...for them.

Lt MaryJo: Go and get some rest...that's an order...you look ready to drop..

SLtKeane: ::Puts on his helmet::

CmdStecker: Ryan> With pleasure, Captain. ::smiles::

SuliRufian: :::blinks, wondering what other surprises await her:::

SuliRufian: Sure.... care to bring me up to speed.

SLtKeane: ::Checks his Padd for current situations reports:::

LtCdrAkira: Hack> +taps+ Doctor is the organic transmitter in the brain stem?

Amb JainaB: ::turns from the screen, crossing her arms::

CmdStecker: Ryan> ::gives quick orders to several of the Marines on board:: 

EnsKiapen: ::feels like crying...CANT sleep until she knows whats going on with that damn computer::

SuliRufian: :::twirls her helmet in her hands:::

LtCdrAkira: Doc> +taps+ Aye Captain. They try anything and he explodes...

Amb JainaB: ::paces::

SuliRufian: And Beta's role in the scenario???

CmdStecker: Do I think Hacker is sincere? No.

LtCdrAkira: Hack> We've run the positive and negative spectrum over here.

SuliRufian: *Keane* Consider it done.

Amb JainaB: ::paces:: Perhaps it was someone on the planet itself....

Amb JainaB: :::frowns at that thought::

CptnThorne: I honestly don't think Hacker knew... but Ryan did.

LtCdrAkira: Hack> My Science Officer suggests a third party.

SLtKeane: ::under his breath:: He would.

CmdStecker: I don't trust any of them.. Ryan knew for sure und he 

CmdStecker: probably set it up.. But Hacker knows about Ryan. 

LtCdrAkira: Hack> Someone who wanted to compromise efforts...

Amb JainaB: I might agree with that assumption. But the questions are who and why?

CmdStecker: That makes him just as guilty. 

SuliRufian: :::posts an extra squad to bridge duty:::

SLtKeane: ::Sees the Security personal arrive and take post on the bridge::

LtCdrAkira: Hack> I haven't answers to those questions...

CptnThorne: Hacker wants the prisoners released... blowing us up 

CptnThorne: surely wouldn't accomplish that.  But I really don't 

CptnThorne: think Ryan cares.

CmdStecker: Hacker knew about Ryan. Everyone does.. Hacker put Ryan 

CmdStecker: in charge of his Marine security force.

CmdStecker: ::confused:: Who? I don't remember anyone named Chen involved vith Ryan.

SuliRufian: :::adjusts her suits sensors to scan for the treacherous material:::

Amb JainaB: ::sighs, holding her hand to her forehead, worried::

SLtKeane: ::looks at his screen:: "That's it.. Helm move to intercept..."

SLtKeane: +Captain to the bridge+

CptnThorne: Ambassador Chen.  He's our concern here.

LtCdrAkira: Hack>::sighs:: I don't need this... 

CptnThorne: ::hears the comm:: Dismissed.

CptnThorne: ::runs out::

LtCdrAkira: Ryan> Sir, should I help...

SLtKeane: "Captain. Sir. Science has detected a small craft with malvidonite traces leave orbit.

Amb JainaB: ::sitting back down::

SLtKeane: "We are moving to intercept."

CmdStecker: ::gladly leaves the God-awful room:: 

LtCdrAkira: Hack> ::looks over at Ryan disdainfully:: Man the bridge... I'll lead this investigation.

Lt MaryJo: They are headed for that nebula...once they are inside...we won't be

Lt MaryJo: able to trace them..

CmdStecker: Ryan> Aye sir. 

SLtKeane: ::warming up the tracker beam::

Amb JainaB: ::thinking about Hacker, not trusting him::

SuliRufian: :::squads check in periodically with their reports:::

SLtKeane: "Order Sir?"

CptnThorne: Move to intercept, let them know what we're doing.

LtCdrAkira: Ellington> ::meets up with Hack:: Sir...

SLtKeane: "Aye sir."

CmdStecker: Kapitan, if we could get Ryan....

LtCdrAkira: Hack> ::whispers:: in my ready room...

LtCdrAkira: Ellington> ::enters RR after Hack...::

SLtKeane: "Shall we hail them?"

CptnThorne: Yes, Mr.Keane... and get a tractor on that runabout.

LtCdrAkira: Ellington> ::doors locked, noise protectors on:: 

SLtKeane: "They will be within trackor range in 34 seconds."

SLtKeane: +Comm: Hailing.+

SLtKeane: "Comm open Sir."

CptnThorne: Increase speed.

Amb JainaB: :::wondering who would try to compromise this negotiation:::

CptnThorne: Evangelion, we have found the probable source of the bomb and are moving to intercept.

SLtKeane: ::Tractorbeam comes online and lashes out at the shuttle gripping it::

LtCdrAkira: Eva Sci> Understood.

LtCdrAkira: Eva Sci> We are continuing investigations...

SLtKeane: "We've got them Sir."

CptnThorne: Reel them in, and ready security teams.

SLtKeane: "Aye sir."

Whack6: if you realy want it come and get it

SLtKeane: +Security to shuttlebay one. Bomb protocals."

LtCdrAkira: Ellington> Your thinking Ryan? 

SuliRufian: <<We're playing BassMAsters??>>

SLtKeane: ::Shuttle slowly slides towards the Atlantis::

CptnThorne: <Yup!>

Lt MaryJo: +SB1+Put biosuits on...it's malvidonite explosives...

LtCdrAkira: Hack> ::nods:: High Command has a reason for everything...

SuliRufian: :::runs through the halls towards shuttle bay one:::

Amb JainaB: ::sits, silent:

LtCdrAkira: Hack> I'm starting to loathe them...

SuliRufian: ::::meets two other squads there:::

LtCdrAkira: Hack> Left my wife on the other side... can't see my daugther...

SLtKeane: +Ruffian+ ETA till there in.. 20 seconds.

LtCdrAkira: Hack> because I have to be the commander of the War nations fleet.

SuliRufian: *Keane* Ack.

GenXtrek: Is a sim going on in here?

LtCdrAkira: Ellington> I understand Captain.

SLtKeane: ::The small shuttle starts to enter the shuttle bay..::

CptnThorne: <<Yes, GenX... shhh. :-)>>

SuliRufian: :::the squads stand at the ready:::

SLtKeane: "Captain. We've got the shuttle in Bay 1. Security attempting to board now.."

LtCdrAkira: Ellington> I was in the wrong place at the wrong time as well.

SLtKeane: ::Shuttle setttles to the floor::

SLtKeane: =Sec= Go.

GenXtrek: <<Sorry, I'll go out>>

CptnThorne: ::nods to Keane, waits to see how this resolves::

SuliRufian: :::the squads take defensive positioning around the shuttle:::

LtCdrAkira: Hack> Surrender Ryan, and hand over Chen, all in good faith.

LtCdrAkira: Ellington> What about High Command?

Amb JainaB: :::clasps her hands together, thinking::

SuliRufian: :::wonders if anyone has a can opener:::

SLtKeane: ::listens to Sec comm::

CptnThorne: ::pacing::

Lt MaryJo: ::throws up containment fields inside the shuttle around the malvidonite traces::

LtCdrAkira: Hack> Screw them! I'll take the blame. No less they'll kill me.

SuliRufian: *Keane* No signs of activity.

LtCdrAkira: Ellington> Ask for asylum... no doubt you'll be called a War Nations traitor.

Lt MaryJo: ::looks at Thorne::  Sir, I'm not picking up any lifesigns

SuliRufian: *Keane* I'm going in....

SLtKeane: +Ruffian+ Very well. Procede to enter. Use caution.

LtCdrAkira: Hack> No... I'll take death then Federation torture...

CptnThorne: Could it have been a decoy, Mary?

Lt MaryJo: it's possible sir..

SuliRufian: :::she approaches the shuttle cautiously:::


Lt MaryJo: or remote control...

SuliRufian: :::stops in her tracks:::

Amb JainaB: ::listens to conversations going on around her::

CptnThorne: Scan the area again.

CmdStecker: ::remains silent::

Lt MaryJo: Aye sir..

SLtKeane: "Mary. I'm readins a small power spike in the shuttle"

Lt MaryJo: Confirmed...

LtCdrAkira: Ellington> And Captain, this crew is with you...

Lt MaryJo: ::her eyes widen::  Get that shuttle off the ship!!  NOW!!

SLtKeane: =Sec= OUT OUT. fall back..

SuliRufian: :::retreats to the door, waving her people out:::

LtCdrAkira: Hack> ::stares momentarily:: Back to the bridge...

Lt MaryJo: The containment fields will only hold for 30 seconds...it has to be away by then..

SuliRufian: :::they move quickly:::

LtCdrAkira: ::Hack and Ellington re-enter the bridge...::

SLtKeane: ::starts the decompressions sequence in the shuttlebay::

CptnThorne: Get it off the ship.

CptnThorne: Blow the bay if you have to.

LtCdrAkira: Hack> Give the Intruders the order to leave we'll handle.

Lt MaryJo: ::looks at Thorne...sir, it was a booby trap...

CmdStecker: Ryan>::stands at attention as Hacker returns::

LtCdrAkira: Tact> ::looks suspiciously:: Aye sir... order sent.

SuliRufian: :::making sure her crew is clear, she exits as well:::

SLtKeane: ::The trackers hurl the shuttle from the ship.. \

CmdStecker: That vas the second von. ::looks at him::

Amb JainaB: ::sighs, not liking any of this::

LtCdrAkira: ::Intruder vessels cross the saucer of the Atlantis and turn back 180 and warp away::

CptnThorne: ::thinks that was too close as he nods to Kristi::

SuliRufian: ::::feels the whoosh of air as the doors barely shut in time:::

SLtKeane: ::The shuttle explodes above the primary hull and between the two warp nacelles::

LtCdrAkira: Hail the Atlantis...

LtCdrAkira: <Hack>

SLtKeane: ::Altantis shudders::

CptnThorne: ::grabs his chair::

LtCdrAkira: ::Evangelion feels some of the shockwave::

SuliRufian: :::steadies herself against the wall:::

SLtKeane: "Captain, Intruder vessels just warped away.."

Amb JainaB: ::feels the ship move, grips the armrests of her chair::

CptnThorne: Wjat

SLtKeane: Warp power offline..

CptnThorne: What's the Evangelion doing?

SLtKeane: Sheilds.. failing..

LtCdrAkira: Eva Sci> Channel open...

LtCdrAkira: Hack> ::waves security around Ryan...:: Arrest him...

Lt MaryJo: ::flies into the console::knocks herself out cold::

SLtKeane: +Engineering+ "Primary power dropping.. "

CmdStecker: Ryan>::looks at Hacker:: Why? What for? 

LtCdrAkira: Hack> +taps+ USS Atlantis...

CptnThorne: +Akira+  Report?

CmdStecker: Ryan> ::gets defensive::

Amb JainaB: :::thinking this day couldn't get any worse::

SLtKeane: ::At tactial:: "Weapons online and ready to fire.."

SLtKeane: ::looks at Science and doesn't see mary:: ::Then to the floor::

LtCdrAkira: Akira> +taps+ We're rerouting... thing'll be better...

CptnThorne: +Hack+ Atlantis here.

SLtKeane: "Medical to the bridge."

LtCdrAkira: Hack> +taps+ We have the bomber... Major Ryan

CptnThorne: ::blinks, his suspicion being proved correct, and silently thanks Kristi in his mind::

LtCdrAkira: Hack> ::appears on screen:: +taps+ And Captain, I've got a proposal for you.

Lt MaryJo: +Keane+This is the sick bay...we're kinda busy down here.  Can't

Lt MaryJo: you handle it yourself?

SLtKeane: ::moves over to Mary and checks her out.:: "I'm working on it."

CptnThorne: ::stands in front of the screen as his ship scurries to repair behind him:: Yes, Captain?

SLtKeane: ::Scans her::

LtCdrAkira: Hack> +taps+ I will hand over information on War Nations Research and politics

Amb JainaB: ::sits up, hearing the word proposal::

LtCdrAkira: Hack> +taps+ For asylum in the Federation, my first officer says this ship

LtCdrAkira: +taps+ Is prepared to do so...

LtCdrAkira: Eva Sci> ::smiles::

SLtKeane: ::pulls her up into a chair:: "Mary.. ?? Mary..??"

Lt MaryJo: ::starts to stir::

Amb JainaB: <q> What about Chen?

Lt MaryJo: ::opens her eyes slowly::sees two of John::

CptnThorne: ::nods to Hack:: And the Ambassador?

LtCdrAkira: +taps+ He will be returned.. you have my word on that...

SLtKeane: +Ruffian+ "Assist with damage control and medical. I need damage reports."

LtCdrAkira: +taps+ Do you accept Captain?

Lt MaryJo: ::is really dazed and out of it::

SLtKeane: ::smiles down at her:: "hey there.." ::removes a hypo from his field pack:: This should help

CptnThorne: ::nods to Hacker:: Yes, Captain.  I will inform 

CptnThorne: Starfleet Command of the situation.  Would you and 

CptnThorne: your XO care to dine aboard the Atlantis this evening?

SuliRufian: :::wondering when she'll have to bring him coffee:::

Lt MaryJo: John?  ::giggles::  I know you're good...

LtCdrAkira: +taps+ I would be delighted.

SuliRufian: :::chuckles:::*Keane* Yes, sir.

SLtKeane: +Ruf+ Oh and I could use some coffee.
