CmdrBrookeDolan: <<Welcome, Goldie!>>
RAdm AC Zuriyev: I suppose that we should get back about now.
CSciAxelalexa: ::Totally unaware there was a leave, still worried about the terrible cheerfulness of the crew::

Lt Allen Zinthys
: ::Sitting at TAC, overseeing the TRs beaming people aboard::
CounselorTempest: ::on the shore, enjoying the rain::
RAdm AC Zuriyev: You are soaked. Perhaps you should beam directly back to your quarters.
EnsignRuder: ::Steps out into Engineering::
Cdr Sullivan: :::rubs her temples and mutters::: You can stay here forever, old girl. One day.... you are going to need to LEAVE this ship.
CounselorTempest: Do we have to go back?
EnsignRuder: ::Looks around at his Engineers:: Welcome to the wonderful world of Engineering.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: ::nods:: Unfortunately.
TKirr: ::After gazing at her reptile for several moments, starts to wander her quarters in a somewhat nervous manner::
: All right. I'll meet you on the bridge.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: I could use a fresh uniform myself. ::picks up his fishing gear::
ensignjerryswiss: :: continues to read his book wondering what starfleet command would think if he wore medievil attire::
CounselorTempest: +TR1+ One to beam up - to Tempest Rainbird's quarters, please. And yes, I'm the Counselor; no smart alec remarks.
Cdr Sullivan: <<We'd make fun of your tights.>>
CounselorTempest: TR1> +Tempest+ Whatever you say, Counselor.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: ::gives her a quick kiss before the transporter beam snatches her::
CounselorTempest: ::beams up to her quarters:;

EnsignRuder: To Kephart> Lance, check and make sure that the Orbiting Thrusters are ready to be powered up at a moments notice.
EnsignRuder: Kephart/Johnson> Aye, sir.
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::finished, sighs deeply and heads to the bridge::
RAdm AC Zuriyev: ACTION> Incoming distress call from the USS Valiant.
EnsignRuder: ::Shouts to second level, at Ensign P'Tel:: "P'Tel, could you make sure that the Dilithium Intake is secure, and the fluxuation is within normal perameters?"
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::taps on his console::
EnsignRuder: P'Tel> That is a logical request, I will get started immediately.
ensignjerryswiss: :: goes over to the rplacator and replactis a huge turkey drum stick and some soda::

Lt Allen Zinthys: ::Checks his other monitor:: Commander, incoming distress call
Lt Allen Zinthys: Should I notify the Admiral?
CmdrBrookeDolan: On screen, Mr. Zinthys.
EnsignRuder: To Kephart> That is pretty good for a machine that doesn't have feelings.
Cdr Sullivan: :::takes the mug back to her desk and sits, trying to absorb the warmth into her own, cold persona::::
Lt Allen Zinthys: Aye. ::Routes the call through::
CmdrBrookeDolan: Please do.
EnsignRuder: Kephart> You never know, they act strange sometimes.
CounselorTempest: ::sitting in her chair, two away from Brooke::

RAdm AC Zuriyev: +Zinthys+ Zuriyev here.
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::returns Tempest's glance::
RAdm AC Zuriyev: ACTION> No visual signal comes through.
CounselorTempest: ::smiles tentatively at Brooke::
Lt Allen Zinthys: +Zuri+ Incoming distress call. Audio only.
TKirr: ::sighs as soothing music seeps into the room::
: ::turns back to the viewer:: Mr. Zinthys, let's hear the distress call.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: +Bridge+ On my way.
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::Taps around:: The feed is audio only. ::Taps:: It's from the Valiant
RAdm AC Zuriyev: ::walks briskly to the TL:: Bridge!
Lt Allen Zinthys: +Zuri+ Aye, sir.
EnsignRuder: Johnson> Ruder, one power relay is burnt out, what should I do.
ensignjerryswiss: :: stands in front of holodeck one:: computer run swiss001
EnsignRuder: To Johnson> Eric, what does your instinct tell you to do?
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::Plays the distress signal::
EnsignRuder: ::Nervously:: Johnson> Replace it.?
EnsignRuder: ::Smiles:: To Johnson> Good Johnson, there is hope for you yet. Use your instinct a little more, it pays off in the long run.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Distress call> Anyone... please SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH thing... SHSHSHZZZZZZZZZZ
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::listens attentively::
ensignjerryswiss: :: as soon as he enters the holodeck he is confronted with a knight wanting him to fight::
CmdrBrookeDolan: Can you clear that up at all?
RAdm AC Zuriyev: ::enters the bridge::
TKirr: ::Gets up from her chair and lowers herself to the floor and begins to meditate::
RAdm AC Zuriyev
: Report.
Lt Allen Zinthys: I'll try ::Attempts to descramble the static::
CounselorTempest: ::frowns slightly::
CounselorTempest: Where is that coming from? What direction?
CmdrBrookeDolan: Mr. Taryn, would you assist Mr. Zinthys?
Cdr Sullivan: <<Sounds like a distress call from a library.....>>
CmdrBrookeDolan: <<LOL!>>
Lt Allen Zinthys: <<LOL!>>
LtJG Taryn: Aye
CounselorTempest: ::calls up the star chart on the arm of her chair::
CounselorTempest: Oh, over there.
Lt Allen Zinthys: I'll try to pin down the location of the Valiant
EnsignRuder: <<Over there, that narrows the direction down>>
Cdr Sullivan: :::sets the mug on her desk and reads over some updates, her finger lazily circling the rim of the mug:::

TKirr: ::continues to meditate, listening to the soothing music::
: :: after defeating the knight jerry heads for his castle for a rest befor e fighting anymore knights::
CounselorTempest: Should we head in their direction as we work?
EnsignRuder: +CSci+ Engineering to Axelalexa.
CSciAxelalexa: +Ruder+ How my I help you?
CounselorTempest: We can have sickbay prepare for casualties. If they don't end up needing to be prepared, then... well, it's good drill.
CmdrBrookeDolan: Helm, plot a course in that general direction.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Have we pinned down their direction yet?
CSciAxelalexa: <<may>>
Cdr Sullivan: Solitaire> ::::pokes her head in and then then back out when she sees that her boss is relatively calm::::
CounselorTempest: <<Oh, guys, Spark is in Chicago. I was probably supposed to tell you all that.>>
CmdrBrookeDolan: ... Once you've got it, that is.
Lt Allen Zinthys has left the room.
EnsignRuder: +CSci+ We are reading strange fluxuations in the warp plasma, any idea of what it may be? A possible foreign fluid or object scan may be of use. Your expertise is greatly appreciated.
CmdrBrookeDolan: <<Thanks, I forgot.>>
Cdr Sullivan: <<He's in Chicago??? Doing what???>>
Lt Allen Zinthys has entered the room.
Cdr Sullivan: <<Welcome back, Z>>
Lt Allen Zinthys: <<::Mutters::>>
CounselorTempest: <<He's involved with the methodists groups that are working within the church to make policies more liberal and accepting to women and homosexuals. I think he's at a conference regarding that.>>
CmdrBrookeDolan: <<Ruder, repeat your communication to Zinthys.>>
CmdrBrookeDolan: <<COOL!>>
EnsignRuder: <<I didn't send anythign to him, it was CSci, not CSec>

CmdrBrookeDolan: <<Sorry, my bad.>>
CSciAxelalexa: +Ruder+ On my way. ::looks for TKirr:: Ensign, are you here/
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::Suddenly reanimates::
TKirr: ::sits in her quarters peacefully::
RAdm AC Zuriyev
: Taryn, any luck?
RAdm AC Zuriyev: ::sees that Zinthys is moving again::
LtJG Taryn: One second...
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::Still trying to pinpoint location of the valiant
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::
CounselorTempest: Admiral, permission to return to my office until more is discovered? We took on some new crew; I would like to start the adjustment process.
CSciAxelalexa: +TKirr+ Ensign, meet me in Engineering. We have to do some scans.
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::sighs:: Ah, more paperwork.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: ::nods to Tempest, noting her unusal attire::
TKirr: ::opens her eyes:: +Axe+ Yes, sir.
: ::stands, takes a deep breath, then walks out of her quarters and heads for the turbolift::
LtJG Taryn
: Zinthys, see if that helps you out...
Cdr Sullivan: :::looks up and sees that Solitaire is trying to be discrete:::: Solitaire.... come in.
ensignjerryswiss: :: wonders if Natas is in sickbay?::
LtJG Taryn: ::punches some buttons::
CSciAxelalexa: ::heads to Engineering with some scanning equipment::
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::sighs at Tempest's unusual attire::
TKirr: ::enters the turbolift:: Deck 16, Engineering.
: ::sighs at Brooke's usual attitude::
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Come on, people!
CounselorTempest: ::stands and enters her office::
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::Taps around, staring intently at one screen:: Yeah...
EnsignRuder: Kephart> Chief, found out what it was. It was Johnson changing the power relay. It increased the plasma flow, more than the filters could allow, and some impurities got past. Fixed now.
CounselorTempest: +TKirr+ Ensign T'Kirr, this is Counselor Rainbird. I was wondering if you had time to discuss how you've been adjusting to the ship.
EnsignRuder: ::Sighs:: +CSci+ Engineering to Axelalexa
TKirr: ::composes herself as the lift doors open, and she steps out into Engineering, looking around for CSci::
: ::walks into Engineering:: I'm here now, what do you need?
TKirr: +Tempest+ I do not at the moment, but I will let you know, Counselor.
: We found the problem, it was a simple Engineer Operation Problem, I apologize for the inconvenience.
CounselorTempest: +TKirr+ Thank you, Ensign. I look forward to meeting with you another time. Rainbird out.
TKirr: ::turns to see Axe walking up::
RAdm AC Zuriyev
: Taryn, Zinthys, get me a location on that signal. Now.
TKirr: Axe> Sir.
LtJG Taryn
: ::punches soem buttons::
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::Grits teeth:: Working on it, sir. ::Tapping furiously::
CSciAxelalexa: ::nods to TKirr:: How are you, ensign?
ensignjerryswiss: :: on his way to his castle he is confronted by another knight jerry starts to fight himbut is wounded in the arm badly and he wonders why the safty protocalls aren't working:: computer end program
EnsignRuder: +Bridge+ Engineering to the Bridge
TKirr: Axe> ::lifts a brow:: Well, sir.
LtJG Taryn
: Zinthys, I am getting them in sector 3.114
Cdr Sullivan: Solitaire> :::steps in a little apprehensively::: I was not trying to interrupt, Commander. I was just checking to see... to see....
CounselorTempest: +Swiss+ Ensign Swiss, this is Counselor Rainbird. I was wondering if you had time to discuss how you've been adjusting to the ship.
CSciAxelalexa: Sorry about that, apparently they called us down but it wasn't important.
ensignjerryswiss: :: heads for the sickbay holding his injured arm::
CmdrBrookeDolan: <<just a quick note for the newer players. when you're speaking TO someone, don't use "Name>" ... when you're speaking AS someone else, then you preface your line with "Name>" >>
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::nods and taps:: Sector 3.114. ::pause:: 8
ensignjerryswiss: ++counsler+ can we do it down in sickbay i hurt myself on the holodeck?
TKirr: Axe> I see. Do you require my assistance in anything else?
RAdm AC Zuriyev
: Taryn, set a course there. Warp 9.9.
TKirr: <<Oops>>
LtJG Taryn
: Aye sir!
CSciAxelalexa: Well, there's a few creatures we need to examine.
CSciAxelalexa: From the survey.
CounselorTempest: +Swiss+ Better watch those holodeck safeties next time. ::winks:: I'll meet you in sickbay.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: +Engineering+ We will be going to warp 9.9. Are we ready for that kind of speed?
CmdrBrookeDolan: <<no problem! just didn't want people to get confused and think Axe had multiple personalities. :-) >>
CounselorTempest: ::walks into the TL:: Sickbay.
Cdr Sullivan: To see if I needed mothering? :::smiles wanely::: As you can see, Solitaire, I am doing just fine. No nervous breakdowns, I'm eating somewhat regularly, sleeping when I can.
TKirr: <<Didn't mean to speak for ya, Axe ^_~>
: +counsler+ ok
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::Makes sure scans are running on shields::
CounselorTempest: <<Axe *doesn't* have multiple personalities?
EnsignRuder: +Bridge+ Of course Admiral, just tell us when.
LtJG Taryn: ::taps the console, and thinks Aye she will::
CmdrBrookeDolan: <<I mean, any more than USUAL.>>
ensignjerryswiss: :: goes into sickbay:: hey doc i need you to look at my arm please
RAdm AC Zuriyev: +Ruder+ We are rated for 9.95 as emergency speed. Can we do that?
CounselorTempest: <<I don't think we have a doctor right now. Our entire medical staff is playing hookey.>>
TKirr: Aye, sir. Where shall we study the specimens?
: <<::Grins:: it's okay, besides, I'll spray anyone wtih anthrax to put them in their paces>>
LtJG Taryn: Sir, we are at warp...8
ensignjerryswiss: +ruder+ ruder can you have someone check out the safty protocalls then?
EnsignRuder: ::turns around:: +Bridge+ You will need to give me a couple of minutes to realign the dilithium matrix, and then reset the inertial dampers...
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::turns to ZUriyev:: Admiral, do we really need to go quite that fast? 5% slower warp speed isn't really going to make that much of a difference, is it?
CounselorTempest: Nurse Luann> Take a seat on the biobed here, Mr. Swiss.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Actually, we are in orbit around the planet.
EnsignRuder: +Swiss+ On it Jer.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Commander, you might remember that warp factors increase in a logarithmic manner.
ensignjerryswiss: :: hops on the biobed in very bad pain
CounselorTempest: Tempest> ::enters sickbay, sees Luann and Swiss:: Hello, Luann. Ensign Swiss - I'm Counselor Rainbird - it's nice to meet you!
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::Sighs and shakes his head::
ensignjerryswiss: same here
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::scowls at him:: You know what I meant.
CounselorTempest: Luann> ::checks his arm over carefully:: Hmm... not too bad. A dermal generator should fix it up. Would you like a painkiller?
EnsignRuder: ::Shouts to Adam Kephart:: Kephart, get down to Holodeck 1 and check the safety protocals.
EnsignRuder: Kephart> On it sir.
CmdrBrookeDolan: Besides, I failed logarythms.
TKirr: <<dermal generator? Woot!>>
RAdm AC Zuriyev
: Taryn, take us to warp 9.9 and prepare to accelerate to 9.95.
ensignjerryswiss: i think someone was messing with my program
LtJG Taryn: Sir we are warp 9.5
LtJG Taryn: 9.6
LtJG Taryn: 9.9
EnsignRuder: Johnson! Realign the dilithium matrix! Now!
LtJG Taryn: ::can hear a few noises::
TKirr: ::looks at Axe questioningly::
: P'Tel! Increase the intertial dampers! Get on it!
CSciAxelalexa: I think we should beam them one at a time into the holodecks simulating their natural habitats.
CounselorTempest: Tempest> That's serious. Are you having problems with someone on the crew?
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::sighs, wonders why she is so often the only voice of reason on the bridge::
Cdr Sullivan: Solitaire> But I can't help but notices that you did not leave the ship for shore leave.... actually, you haven't left the ship since you've gotten back from... from....
CounselorTempest: Luann> ::grabs the regenerator and tends to Swiss' arm:: Here, extend your forearm like that.
LtJG Taryn: Pushing her to 9.92...sir
TKirr: ::bows slightly:: Very good, sir.
: ::runs to console:: Johnson> Dilithium intake has been altered, waiting on the inertial dampers.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: At any rate, warp 9.95 is almost twice as fast as warp 9.9.
Cdr Sullivan: I believe the word you are looking for Ensign... is Hell.
ensignjerryswiss: sorry about the way i look counsler i was playing out a king arthur sim on the holodeck
CounselorTempest: Luann> Good, good... there you go. ::finishes up:: Good as new.
CmdrBrookeDolan: <<really? you so smart!!!>>
EnsignRuder: ::runs to another console:: P'Tel> "The inertial dampers are set sir, we are ready to emergency speed.
CmdrBrookeDolan: Sure, but it rips holes in the fabric of spacetime.
ensignjerryswiss: thanks doc
EnsignRuder: +Bridge+ Ruder to Admiral Zuriyev.
CounselorTempest: Tempest> That's all right. I've had my share of messy days.
CmdrBrookeDolan: <<::*hates* logarythms::>>
CounselorTempest: Tempest> And I love medieval clothing. King Arthur... dashing knight in shining armor. Who were you playing? Arthur? Lancelot?
RAdm AC Zuriyev: +Zuriyev+ Zuriyev here.
ensignjerryswiss: but i do feel more comfortable in these clothes
ensignjerryswiss: King Arthur
CounselorTempest: Luann> No problem, Ensign. Have a good day. Let me know if you need a pain killer or something later.
ensignjerryswiss: ok doc
CounselorTempest: Tempest> Now that you're dismissed... shall we? My office isn't terribly far away.
ensignjerryswiss: ok
EnsignRuder: +Zuriyev+ We have things set sir. Inertial dampers are ready for the stress, and the dilithium matrix has been refitted for extensive plasma residue dispersion, we are go for Warp 9.95.
TKirr: Sir, which holodeck?
RAdm AC Zuriyev
: +Ruder+ Good. Now prepare us for warp 9.99.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Taryn, take us up to emergency speed.
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::hopes the ship doesn't tear apart::
CSciAxelalexa: I've got one reserved for study. Let's head out there.
EnsignRuder: ::shrugs:: +Zuriyev+ Aye sir.
CSciAxelalexa: ::Leads the way to the holodeck he's reserved::
TKirr: ::nods and follows CSci::
: P'Tel, increase the Inertial Dampers to maximum capacity and stand by.
ensignjerryswiss: counsler i wonder what starfleet would think of the way i am dressed?
Cdr Sullivan: Solitaire> :::looks at her meaningfully::: You know what I am trying to say.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: We are cleared to run at warp 9.99 for thirty-six hours.
CounselorTempest: Tempest> Hmm... you're in Security, right?
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::wonders why the engineer isn't telling Zuriyev that he canna do it, she don't have the powerrrrr::
EnsignRuder: Johnson! Refit the dilithium matrix for its utmost holding ability.
ensignjerryswiss: yup
EnsignRuder: Potter! Power up the emergency power relays, we need all the juice we can get!
LtJG Taryn: Aye sir....
LtJG Taryn: 9.99 sir!!
EnsignRuder: <<NOT READY FOR THAT>
CounselorTempest: Well, my experience is that while I can get away with this because I'm a counselor... ::gestures at her pale green dress:: They're more stringent with Security personnel. You could ask your department head, though.
CounselorTempest: I think you'd make a dashing figure on the ship.
CounselorTempest: And it certainly qualifies you to asnwer distress calls!
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::Sighs and triple checks the phasers::
EnsignRuder: Logan! Please increase the plasma intake!
ensignjerryswiss: ok thanks
CounselorTempest: ::walks out onto the bridge, and then into her office, gesturing for Swiss to precede her into the room::
EnsignRuder: P'Tel> Inertial Dampers are at critical mass, good for 36 hours sir.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: ::stands in front of his chair, watching the screen::
EnsignRuder: Johnson> Matrix refitted, set for 36 hour running time.
CSciAxelalexa: ::after an indeterminate time, arrvies at the Holodeck 'pi', as he has dubbed it::
ensignjerryswiss: follows her into her room::
TKirr: ::follows CSci, feeling the ship around her rumble::
: Logan> The plasma intake is set sir, we have 36 hours.
EnsignRuder: Potter> Power relays are up and running sir, we are set for warp 9.99.
EnsignRuder: +Zuriyev+ Ruder to Admiral Zuriyev.
CounselorTempest: Please have a seat, Ensign.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: +Ruder+ Zuriyev ehre.
ensignjerryswiss: :: sits::
CounselorTempest: So, how have you been adjusting? Do you like starship life?
CSciAxelalexa: ::walks in:: Computer, simulate planet 534.634.434, and beam in Mortus Pices.
TKirr: ::steps inside the holodeck and stands off to the side, hands clasped behind her back::
: +Zuriyev+ We are set for 9.99.
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::feels trembling and shuddering underneath her:: Oy.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: +Ruder+ Excellent. Our specs say we can handle that for 36 hours. Can we?
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::mutters:: Whoever sent that distress call, they damn well better be worth this.
ensignjerryswiss: i've been adjusting well and i do miss home a little but i'm getting used to living on a starship
ensignjerryswiss has left the room.
CSciAxelalexa: Computer> Does as it is told
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Commander, calm yourself. Our destructive speed is warp 9.9952.
EnsignRuder: +Zuriyev+ 36 Hours at utmost efficiency, after that the system slows down. Much more over 40 hours and we will need a matienance overhaul.
TKirr: ::watches curiously as the specimen materializes before them::
Lt Allen Zinthys
: <<Don't scare the nubes, Temp!>>
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Taryn, maximum speed. Warp 9.99.
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::gazes cooly:: I'm perfectly calm, Admiral. I trust you implicitly to know the limitations of your own ship and crew. I'm certain we'll be just fine.
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::Imagines the ship getting ready to fall apart::
CSciAxelalexa: ::looks at the specimen of Mortus Pices:: So, what do you notice, Ensign, about the specimen?
ensignjerryswiss has entered the room.
LtJG Taryn: We are at top speed...sir any higher the hull can't take it..
EnsignRuder: +Zuriyev+ And if you don't mind, I have enough work as it is. A mateinence overhaul would give me more work than handalable.
Cdr Sullivan: Yes, I do, Solitaire..... and frankly... it isn't any of your business where I go and when I go. If I choose to never leave this office again, and the Captain does not require my services... then I will stay here.
EnsignRuder: ::Smiles::
RAdm AC Zuriyev: +Ruder+ Of course, Ensign.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: ::folds his arms over his chest, nods satisfactorily::
ensignjerryswiss: << sorry got booted>>
TKirr: <<You want me to make it up, Axe?>>
: +Zuriyev+ No disrespect sir.
CounselorTempest: Where's home?
RAdm AC Zuriyev: It has been a while since we have been up this fast.
ensignjerryswiss: york pa
CSciAxelalexa: <<Yup. Go ahead and pick some random things up>>
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Taryn, ETA?
Cdr Sullivan: Solitaire> And if the Captain requires for you to leave your office or heaven forbid... the ship.... then what?
EnsignRuder: Potter! Monitor those relays an overload would send us into a horrible explosion of fireworks and hull shrapnel.
LtJG Taryn: 5mins!
EnsignRuder: Johnson, make sure the dilithium stays pure, an impurities could shred the fabric of space.
TKirr: ::trails her eyes over the specimen indifferently::
: ::grips the arm of her chair a little more tightly::
CounselorTempest: Oh, in the United States? Terran born and bred - that's good. You'll find there are a lot of people here just like you.
CounselorTempest: Do you have your own room, or are you sharing a berth?
RAdm AC Zuriyev: ::standing, looking statisfied::
ensignjerryswiss: i have my own room
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::thinks the Admiral looks pretty self-satisfied ... borderline smug, even::
CounselorTempest: That's good! Must be a relief after the academy, huh?
ensignjerryswiss: and it looks like something from king arthur's time
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::crosses her legs::
EnsignRuder: ::Johnson enters the Engineering:: Johnson> Safety protocals in Holodeck 1 are malfunctioning, suggest we shut it down.
CounselorTempest: Oh, that's interesting!
EnsignRuder: +Holodeck 1+ Ruder to Holodeck 1.
TKirr: It resembles species of the Platuthe genus, but is slightly larger than most.
RAdm AC Zuriyev
: ::sits:: No other class of ship can hold this speed.
ensignjerryswiss: i don't remember too much from the acadmey
LtJG Taryn: Sir eta...2mins out sir
CounselorTempest: <<Platuthe? Is that Yiddish? Can you say that without spitting? ::ducks::>>
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Zinthys, trasmit to the Valiant that we are incoming.
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::ignores the comment that seems to be tempting fate:: Can we get a clearer signal, now that we're closer?
Lt Allen Zinthys: Aye, sir.
CounselorTempest: Are you lonely here?
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::Taps on console::
Ggoldie044 has left the room.
ensignjerryswiss: the sword on my back i got for my birthday is a replcai of king arthur's excalibur
TKirr: The eyes are more prominent, and the external dermis has a darker tint.
: i have a few friends and a girlfriend
EnsignRuder: Computer, seal off Holodeck 1. Authorization Ruder Omega Epsilon 4.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: ACTION> There is no signal from the Valiant.
EnsignRuder: +Computer+ Holodeck 1 sealed.
CSciAxelalexa: ::nods:: Why do you think the skin is darker?
CmdrBrookeDolan: Have you lost the signal?
Lt Allen Zinthys: Sir, the Valiant is not replying.
LtJG Taryn: ::slows the ship out of warp, as the come to the signal::
CmdrBrookeDolan: Damn.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Are they on scanners?
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Approach at impulse, Taryn.
EnsignRuder: Potter! Deactivate those extra relays.
Lt Allen Zinthys: Negative, sir.
TKirr: ::raises her brows and thinks:: I assume it hibernates less and lives in a climate more exposed to the sun.
: ::lets out a held breath as the ship slows without breaking into pieces::
EnsignRuder: P'Tel make sure the inertial dampers return to normal capacity.
CSciAxelalexa: ::nods:: Yes, we noticed that behavior. And the eyes?
CounselorTempest: A girlfriend?
EnsignRuder: Kephart, make sure the dilithium flow returns to a stable level.
ensignjerryswiss: yup from sickbay
EnsignRuder: P'Tel, Kephart, Potter> Aye sir.
CounselorTempest: That's good. ::smiles:: I'm sure she fits in well with your Arthur image. A true angel of mercy.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: ACTION> The Valiant appears on sensors, and appears to be adrift.
ensignjerryswiss: she thinks it's cool
CounselorTempest: Well, contact me if you ever need anything - or if you just want to talk, all right?
ensignjerryswiss: ok
TKirr: ::turns her gaze, then makes a slight start, remaining silent::
Lt Allen Zinthys
: Sir, I have it. She's adrift, sir.
CounselorTempest: ::stands up:: You can go now, Ensign. Enjoy your time off!
TKirr: I... am not sure, sir.
: Any visible damage?
CmdrBrookeDolan: Lifesigns?
RAdm AC Zuriyev: On screen.
ensignjerryswiss: :: leaves and exits for the bridge to see what's going on:: thanks counsler
CounselorTempest: ::leaves her office and takes her place on the bridge, watching the view screen::
TKirr: ::steps closer and studies the specimen's eyes::
Lt Allen Zinthys
: ::Bring up the image of the USS Valiant adrift in space::
RAdm AC Zuriyev: ::Winces::
TKirr: <<btw, Axe, is this creature dead or alive?>>
Cdr Sullivan
: :::looks at Solitaire::: You are dismissed.
Lt Allen Zinthys: Sir, there's no life signs.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: It is partially gone...
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Magnify.
ensignjerryswiss: :: just stare at the image on the viewscreen::
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::tightens her lips:: Damn,
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Taryn, get us closer. 1000 kilometers.
Lt Allen Zinthys: I am, however, getting strange readings from the hull. ::Zooms in::
LtJG Taryn: Aye..
ensignjerryswiss: what the...... what happened to the ship?
LtJG Taryn: ::moves the ship closer::
CmdrBrookeDolan: Gotta love those strange reading ...
CSciAxelalexa: <<Alive>>
Lt Allen Zinthys: Something... biological
CSciAxelalexa: Specimen> ::looks up at TKirr::
RAdm AC Zuriyev: There is some sort of... goo... on the hull.
Cdr Sullivan: :::her bridge update console beeps softly and she flicks it on, getting a feed from the bridge viewscreen::::
TKirr: ::blinks as the creature blinks back at her::
: +Bridge+ Ruder to the Bridge.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Taryn, try to interface with their computer system.
Lt Allen Zinthys: Could that be what attacked it?
Cdr Sullivan: :::frowns and looks at it more intensely:::
ensignjerryswiss: :: has a feeling something bad is about to happen::
LtJG Taryn: aye sir..::
LtJG Taryn: ::starts to set up a relay::
CmdrBrookeDolan: +Ruder+ This is Commander Dolan. Go ahead.
EnsignRuder: +Bridge+ We should analyze that stuff, I have tank here in Engineering that is set for containment.
CSciAxelalexa: You might want to step back from it.
CmdrBrookeDolan: <m> Gotta love that goo ...
TKirr: ::steps back::
Cdr Sullivan
: :::does a quick staff check to see who is on duty and who is off:::
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::Sees Swiss:: Ensign! Head down to the security office and assemble a security crew, just in case and away mission is needed
CSciAxelalexa: There was sufficent evidence that Mortus Pices is quite poisonous.
Lt Allen Zinthys: an*
ensignjerryswiss: aye sir
CmdrBrookeDolan: +Ruder+ I see you're keeping right on top of things. But I don't know if we want to bring an unknown substance onboard just yet.
CSciAxelalexa: From the scans I put this guy through earlier.
ensignjerryswiss: :: grabs a few of redshirts and heads for eng::
TKirr: ::nods::
RAdm AC Zuriyev
: <<Mortus Pices? Dead Fish?>>
TKirr: ::hestitantly:: The... lids are vertical, as normal, but the curvature of the surface is convex to an unusual degree.
LtJG Taryn
: Sir I can't get a response from the ship sir
Lt Allen Zinthys: <<Apparently so>>
EnsignRuder: +Bridge+ In addition, if they send an away team, I think that I should take a team of engineers into Engineerings, see what propulsio n they have. Or if they have any left.
CmdrBrookeDolan: They're probably dead, Taryn.
CSciAxelalexa: <<::Grins:: Yes. I mean no.>>
RAdm AC Zuriyev: We need to access their logs.]
CounselorTempest: ::doesnt sense anything from space::
CounselorTempest: I sense no great pain.
ensignjerryswiss: :: realizes he is still dressed like king arthur::
TKirr: <<lol temp>>
: ::nods encouragingly::
RAdm AC Zuriyev: And if he can not get a response from their computer, then it is offline...
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Meaning we need to go over there.
CounselorTempest: <<::looks innocent::
CmdrBrookeDolan: +Ruder+ Stand by.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Taryn, is there an atmosphere anywhere on the ship?
TKirr: ::looks down at CSci questioningly, feeling uncomfortably too tall::
: :: assembles 5 redshirts plus himself and gets everyone ready for an away moission
LtJG Taryn: ::turns to the Admiral::Yes sir on deck 16-18
EnsignRuder: +Bridge+ Aye sir.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: But no power... we need at the bridge.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Taryn, take us to a distance of ten kilometers and go to all stop.
CmdrBrookeDolan: Admiral, do we maybe want to get a little more information about what happened to the Valiant before we send out people over there?
CmdrBrookeDolan: Hate to sound like a Vulcan, but ...
LtJG Taryn: ::nods::Aye sir
LtJG Taryn: ::moves teh ship::
RAdm AC Zuriyev: That will be easiest with their sensor logs.
Cdr Sullivan: :::waves Solitaire out of her office and remains glued to the console, watching as things unfold:::
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Still. Get a sample of that goo to science.
CounselorTempest: But it looks decimated.
CounselorTempest: ::returns to observing passively::
ensignjerryswiss: :: paces back and forth in the security offce hoping nothing bad happens::
CSciAxelalexa: ::looks up at her:: So, what do you make of it?
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::shakes her head:: It looks evil, Sir.
LtJG Taryn: Sir, how about sending a team over with Enviro-suits.
TKirr: <<where did goo come from? Wasn't listening...>>
: <<it's on the Valiant>>
TKirr: <<The hull?>>
RAdm AC Zuriyev
: How does goo look evil?
CmdrBrookeDolan: <<yes>>
EnsignRuder: Johnson! P'Tel, Kephart, Potter, Logan! Prepare for an Engineering Away Mission, it hasn't been approved, but we best be ready.
CounselorTempest: It... looks... malign.
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::blink::
TKirr: ::turns back to the specimen, saying nothing::
: It just looks like ... it was the product of something bad. I know it sounds absurd, but I don't think we should expose our crew to it without knowing exactly what it is.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Then knowing our science department, they will have a field day with it.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: That is what containment fields are for, Commander.
CmdrBrookeDolan: And Tempest agrees with me! ... Tempest agrees with me?
ensignjerryswiss: :: picks up a padd with information about king arthur on it::
Lt Allen Zinthys: <<LoL>>
EnsignRuder: All Engineers> ::nods and scampers around gathering equipment::
CounselorTempest: Yes, Brooke.
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::turns to the counselor for support, as if to say, "You deal with him ..."::
CSciAxelalexa: It's okay if you're not sure, I know you weren't here for the capturing.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: I want a sample of that substance in Science. Get on it, Commander.
CounselorTempest: ::surprised; considers commenting that Brooke is the one who had the problem, but doesn't, talks to the Admiral as well::
TKirr: Perhaps it is a mutation. I would hypothesize the curvature is some sort of adaptation to the brighter sun.
: ::drops her head slightly to cover a sigh:: Aye, sir.
CounselorTempest: Admiral, maybe we should analyze it remotely?
CounselorTempest: Doesn't science have the capacity to do that?
RAdm AC Zuriyev: The order is given.
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::mutters, diva-like:: I can't work like this!
Cdr Sullivan: :::taps a message to Zinthys::: *What the HELL is that??*
CSciAxelalexa: ::nods:: Ah, exactly. They came from a band closer to the planet's equator.
LtJG Taryn: What about sending a team over sir to get power restored?
CounselorTempest: Yes, Admiral.
CmdrBrookeDolan: +Axe+ Dolan to Science.
TKirr: ::nods in response:: Then it is most likely.
: Permission to help go over the logs when they are recovered?
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::Types back:: goo... the Commander thinks it is evil
RAdm AC Zuriyev: I am no engineer, Taryn, but I doubt power will ever be restored to that hulk.
CounselorTempest: As ship's psychiatrist.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Each department will be analyzing the logs from a different perspective.
Cdr Sullivan: ::types back::: *Evil goo? Like Malignant Mucus?*
EnsignRuder: +Bridge+ Ruder to the Bridge.
CmdrBrookeDolan: +Axe+ I have something really special for you to do.
CSciAxelalexa: ::nods:: Yes, you'll make a fine addition to the crew.
TKirr: ::looks at CSci as he is badged::
: +Dolan+ I know nothing about Bullet Proof Bob or where his spleen might be. Honest.
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::RE:: If you want to be alliterative about it
CSciAxelalexa: ::Said in a totally deadpan voice::
Lt Allen Zinthys: <<LOL!>>
TKirr: ::seems to respond little to CSci's compliment::
: +Axe+ Que?
ensignjerryswiss: :: doesn't lik the look of the goo and has a bad feeling about it too::
CmdrBrookeDolan: +Axe+ Would you come to the bridge, please? Bring an assistant or two.
CounselorTempest: ::moves toward Brooke's side surreptitiously, and says to her in a half-whisper::
RAdm AC Zuriyev: ::stares at the listing ship on the screen::
CmdrBrookeDolan: +Axe+ I'll explain when you get up here. Dolan out.
CounselorTempest: What are you feeling here? What do you think's going on?
RAdm AC Zuriyev: Zinthys, get a tractor beam on that ship and stabilize its drift.
CSciAxelalexa: ::looks over to TKirr:: Looks like we're going up to the bridge.
TKirr: ::nods and follows Axe::
Lt Allen Zinthys
: Aye, sir ::Tractor beam lances out at the Valiant::
CSciAxelalexa: Computer, replace specimen and reset holodeck.
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::whispers:: This is crazy, I know, but I just feel ... it feels ... wrong.
CSciAxelalexa: ::Heads off to the bridge.
ensignjerryswiss: +counsler+ can you come to the security office i need to talk to you
CounselorTempest: ::nods to Brooke:: Like... displaced?
Cdr Sullivan: :::chuckles despite herself and begins ripping through the database for any mention of the word *goo*::::
CmdrBrookeDolan: I think the Admiral is being too impulsive, and almost reckless here. I can't talk to him, he never listens to a thing I say.
CounselorTempest: This is... random, but is that a new necklace?
EnsignRuder: ::looks at a console and smiles::
CounselorTempest: It looks like... a white stallion charm?
EnsignRuder: +Bridge+ Ruder to the Bridge.
CounselorTempest: Russian art?
CmdrBrookeDolan: ::self-consciously touches the figure hanging on her neck:: Oh ... this?
CounselorTempest: I could have sworn I saw one like it ...
CounselorTempest: It's so familiar.
CmdrBrookeDolan: You know, I found it in a box of things in my quarters. I think someone gave it to me a long time ago, but I can't remember who, or when.
CounselorTempest: I remember now... in the collection of his mother's things - Alexi's mother's things. Where did you get it? So startling to see two so similar pieces.
CmdrBrookeDolan: I don't even know what it is, but it seems ... familiar ... to me too.
CSciAxelalexa: ::arrives on the bridge:: ::looks about::
CounselorTempest: ...familiar...
CounselorTempest: ..and this is wrong?
EnsignRuder: +Zinthys+ Power can be restored, would be limited to bridge power, and engineering if we are lucky. We would have to reroute power from the Atlantis. Extend the shields around it, but we would get a better idea of what is going on.
TKirr: ::steps onto the bridge after Axe, nervously::
: +Zinthys+ With the Admiral's permission of course.
EnsignRuder: <<I thought Vulcans didn't get nervous>>
Lt Allen Zinthys: ::Sees Tempest and Dolan getting along, listens to Ruder::
ensignjerryswiss: :: looks on the monitor on the desk and thinks to himeself that reminds me of slime and slimer""
CmdrBrookeDolan: Honestly, I can't recall. But having it on is somewhat ... I don't know ... comforting, I guess. I couldn't say why. But since I've worn it, I just feel ... I don't know, different sometimes. I know, it's silly.
Lt Allen Zinthys: Admiral, Ruder wants to extend the shields over to the Atlantis so we can route power to it.
CounselorTempest: We all need things like that.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: It is possible to restore power to the Valiant?
Lt Allen Zinthys: I advise against it at current, since we don't know what that goo does.
CmdrBrookeDolan: Familiar ... wrong ... I seem to be using words without really understanding why ...
CounselorTempest: My candles are like that. And the porcelain wolf. You know what I mean.
RAdm AC Zuriyev: PAUSE SIM
