You have just entered room "Celestial Prime."
LtDougMcKnight: Not bad. Classes have yet to spiral out of control in any meaningful way. :-)
LtDougMcKnight: Yours?
LtDougMcKnight: Evening, Admiral.
VAdm Blackthorne: Evening!
MCptAdamDrake: ::grins:: It's going, thankfully. Evening Admiral. :-)
EnsnDakota Ellis has entered the room.
LtDougMcKnight: Evening, Ellis.
MCptAdamDrake: Evening Dak.
EnsnDakota Ellis: Hi McKnight
MCptAdamDrake: Axe may be late, or not here at all...his computer is tied up.
EnsnDakota Ellis: Hi Zinthys, Admiral.
MCptAdamDrake: ::grins and props up his feet on the nearest chair::
Lt TKirr has entered the room.
Lt TKirr: ::salutes::
MajorAZinthys: Heya, Dakota.
EnsnDakota Ellis: Hi TKirr
MCptAdamDrake: Heya T'Kirr! ::waves:: :-)
Lt TKirr: Hello =)
MCptAdamDrake: How are you?
Lt TKirr: I'm pretty good. You?
Lt TKirr: Congratulations on your new standing, Mr. McKnight.
LtDougMcKnight: Hey, T'Kirr.
MCptAdamDrake: Excellent! Never been better! :-)
Lt TKirr: Great!
LtDougMcKnight: Thank'ee kindly. :-)
Lt TKirr: Anything in particular fuelling your mood?
Lt TKirr: ...sp?
MCptAdamDrake: ::smiles:: Several things, actually, but it's just been an excellent week.
Lt TKirr: Ah... great
Lt TKirr: I got 1GB DDR RAM, I'm stoked =P
MCptAdamDrake: Ooooh....
Lt TKirr: StarWars runs better now =)
VAdm Blackthorne: Me too. :-)
MCptAdamDrake: I want to play Star Wars Galaxies, but my computer is too slow...
LtDougMcKnight: DDR? Something other than Dance Dance Revolution I assume?
MajorAZinthys: ::laughs::
MCptAdamDrake: ::snickers::
Lt TKirr: I'm... not familiar with that part of Earth history.
EnsnDakota Ellis: Don't say that out loud.. It's like calling Hacker's name three times..
MajorAZinthys: ::Pictures a Vulcan on DDRMAX::
MajorAZinthys: ::Laughs again::
VAdm Blackthorne: Trust me, you don't want to play SWG until it's finished.
Lt TKirr: ::arches a brow inquisitively::
EnsnDakota Ellis: it's not finished?
WillFMarlowe has entered the room.
Lt TKirr: It's a bit late for that, Blackthorne.
LtDougMcKnight: Marlowe, hey.
MCptAdamDrake: Heya Will! ::waves::
VAdm Blackthorne: Yeah? Then where's the STAR part of it? Hmmm?
Lt TKirr: Next year...
VAdm Blackthorne: Right, which means the game was released unfinished.
WillFMarlowe: Hey, everybody.
Lt TKirr: They're called expansions
MCptAdamDrake: Just another way for them to jip you with paying more money...
Lt TKirr: Every MMORPG has them
MCptAdamDrake: The Sims: Prime Example.
MajorAZinthys: Yeah, but they keep changing things, like, every week.
MajorAZinthys: Heya, Will!!
VAdm Blackthorne: It's called releasing an unfinished product then charging your customers more money for features that should have been in the original game.
LtDougMcKnight: See, this is why I sim with you guys. You don't charge squat.
MCptAdamDrake: ::nodnod:: Admiral's right! ::grins::
MajorAZinthys: But, wasn't the thing already delayed, like, three generations?
Lt TKirr: That's what I said... expansions. =P
LtDougMcKnight: "Remember, it's only illegal to fuck kids if you're not a multi-national corporation."
VAdm Blackthorne: Never mind that they've already nerfed half the classes in the game and it's still buggy as all hell.
MCptAdamDrake: LOL!
Lt TKirr: Very buggy.... /nod
VAdm Blackthorne: Meaning that it's NOT FINISHED. :-)
Lt TKirr: Creature Handler got SO nerfed.. but they needed it
MajorAZinthys: Yeah. But Star Wars sucks anyways.
Lt TKirr: Hey, take that back
MCptAdamDrake: Judges> ::rule that the Admiral is correct::
VAdm Blackthorne: You're paying for the privilege of alpha testing their game.
MCptAdamDrake: =-O @ Zinthys
Lt TKirr: I luff StarWars
MCptAdamDrake: Me too!
VAdm Blackthorne: I love Star Wars. But that game isn't Star Wars in any way, shape, or form.
Lt TKirr: I'm having fun playing it, so lay off
LtDougMcKnight: Hey, he's among Trekkies. If he can't safely bash Star Wars here, then where?
Lt TKirr: You obviously didn't play it for long
MCptAdamDrake: Uh-Oh, an angry Vulcan... ::tiptoes away::
MajorAZinthys: That's what I'm sayin'! Thank you, Doug.
Lt TKirr: I'm a Trekkie much more than StarWars
LtDougMcKnight: No prob, Bob.
MajorAZinthys: Damn modin' Warsies and their stupid Force.
VAdm Blackthorne: Long enough to realize that the game isn't done.
VAdm Blackthorne: Anyway, now that's over with, shall we sim? :-)
Lt TKirr: I agree, there's much to do
MajorAZinthys: Yay!
Lt TKirr: So what?
MCptAdamDrake: ::nods::
LtDougMcKnight: Sounds like a plan.
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::owns all of two computer games. whisles and acts like she know what they're talking about.. and goes back to reading penny arcade::
VAdm Blackthorne: No, not the Force... Da Schwartz!
MajorAZinthys: ::Pulls out the loaner whistle::
MCptAdamDrake: ::grins::
MCptAdamDrake: Go Yogurt!
MajorAZinthys: ::Blows into it::
MajorAZinthys: Attention!!
MCptAdamDrake: ::@::
LtDougMcKnight: ::AA::
MCptAdamDrake: ::@::
Lt TKirr: ::AA::
WillFMarlowe: ::attn::
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::AA::
VAdm Blackthorne: Alright, so last week the fighting finally stopped as the rebels realized that their fight was lost.
VAdm Blackthorne: A remedy for their problem has been developed, and science and medical are figuring out how to disseminate it.
VAdm Blackthorne: Questions?
LtDougMcKnight: Nope.
MajorAZinthys: No, sir.
LtDougMcKnight: Right, nope sir.

EnsnDakota Ellis: ::sitting in the Sci lab.. tapping her foot on the chair leg::
MajorAZinthys: <<::Doesn't remember where he was::>>
VAdm Blackthorne: ::walks out of the RR after his conversation with Ashani::
MajorAZinthys: <<::Must have been on the bridge... yeah, that's it::>>
VAdm Blackthorne: Report, Mr. Zinthys.
LtDougMcKnight: (As far as I can recall, that was it, yes.)
EnsnDakota Ellis: (there's be alot of that plot forgeting lately.. it's an epidemic)
WillFMarlowe: ::in sickbay, logging in the time at which the last of his patients left sickbay::
Lt TKirr: <<Copy from last week: Lt TKirr: +Sickbay+ We'll need to replicate the formula for the population. A detailed report is included in the Mreian medical profile. I'll be joining you shortly.>>
MajorAZinthys: ::Standing at Tactical::
MajorAZinthys: The rebel forces have withdrawn completly, Admiral.
MajorAZinthys: <<::whistles::>>
MCptAdamDrake: ::on the planet's surface looking at the charred remnants of the building::
Lt TKirr: <<I had D'nali explaining to Ellis about the Mreian sleep...>>
VAdm Blackthorne: We'll leave it to the Mreians to figure out how to deal with them.
MajorAZinthys: Parts of the city are in ruins, though.
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::looking at D'nali and tapping her foot::
MajorAZinthys: For the most part, the fires are out.
LtDougMcKnight: ::Walks back into C&C and retrieves his pack which he had left by the doorway, slinging it over his shoulder before adding the rifle to his load and heading out of the compund with a picked party of marines to join Drake::
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::to Ellis:: So, now that I've explained about why we can sleep so long... you wanted to know how to expose this to a large mass...
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::wraps his chin in his long fingers, pondering::
VAdm Blackthorne: And all's quiet on the western front.
VAdm Blackthorne: ::sits in his chair::
MCptAdamDrake: Michael?
EnsnDakota Ellis: Well, is there a way to use your sleeping pods? Is there a central Ops center for all the pods?
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::throws up his hands:: I have no idea!
MCptAdamDrake: Jeddin> Captain? ::turns and looks up from his PADD::
MCptAdamDrake: ::taps his own PADD:: Status report on the fires?
MCptAdamDrake: Jeddin> ::gazes down for a brief second:: All contained and extinguished, sir. There was this on and one other on the other side of the city - Potter has that one under control.
MCptAdamDrake: ::nods:: Excellent.
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::blinks his large, black eyes:: Hm.. the pods...
LtDougMcKnight: ::Walks up behind Drake, 3 squad leaders in tow, and leans up against the wall of one of the less damaged buildings, waiting silently for Drake to finish his current conversation::
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::nods:: Yes.. Explain more how they work...
Lt TKirr: ::brightens:: That's a brilliant idea! We could use the pods, yes. The Core could transmit it to everyone through the nodes.
MCptAdamDrake: Jeddin> I'll have our team search for anything of value in the wreckage. ::walks away::
MCptAdamDrake: ::nods::
MCptAdamDrake: ::looks up for a moment, and then around his surroundings, spotting McKnight::
Lt TKirr: ::walks into Sickbay::
Lt TKirr: Doctor.
WillFMarlowe: ::looks up:: Lieutenant.
WillFMarlowe: I take it you haven't found a way to distribute the cure yet.
MCptAdamDrake: ::walks over to him:: How we doing in all of this?
Lt TKirr: We must begin replication of the formula.
WillFMarlowe: I'm not sure how fast the medical replicator can produce it in quantity.
EnsnDakota Ellis: Can you get me into the core to take a look?
LtDougMcKnight: ::Nods curtly, butcourteously to Drake:: We've got plenty of men on standby to help cordon off this area, but to be honest, I'm not sure if this is a job best left in our hands.
MCptAdamDrake: ::tilts head slightly:: Oh?
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::smiles at Ellis:: Sure, of course. I'm sure Ashani will ask that you give the cure to our science people to introduce it to the Core's environment.
LtDougMcKnight: What with everything these people have gone through in the past few days, I think they'd prefer to hear it from their own security folks.
Lt TKirr: D'nali> I'll follow you to your transporter, and we can go down and have a look.
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::nods:: I'd like to make sure this will work before we present it to Ashani
MCptAdamDrake: ::nods:: Agreed.
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::stands:: Great.. This way.. ::heads for the nearest TR::
Lt TKirr: ::to Marlowe:: Ensign Ellis is working on a distribution solution now.
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::follows Ellis::
LtDougMcKnight: Not that we're not up to the job, but damned if I'd let a Klingon or anyone else tell me that I couldn't come into my own house. However, since we can't leave our boys bored...
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::grabs a padd on the way out::
LtDougMcKnight: I'd like to organize a few patrols, make sure those rebels didn;t leave behind a few friends, explosives, whatever.
WillFMarlowe: How much will we potentially need?
MCptAdamDrake: Well, let's leave our people in place for the time being. We'll have their teams inform their leaders and what not. The Engineering aspect here is nearly complete. We're waiting on Science and Medical now.
Lt TKirr: ::looks at the medical profile of the Mreian species on the console:: The number is here.
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::walks down the hall and into the TR:: Just tell the chief where to send us, D'nali..
MCptAdamDrake: ::nods:: I agree, make sure there aren't any 'surprises' out there.
Lt TKirr: D'nali> Of course.
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::turns to chief and points out a spot on the map::
WillFMarlowe: ::looks at the number, his brow quirking a bit with surprise, then nods:: I'll get started.
WillFMarlowe: Anything else?
LtDougMcKnight: Normally I wouldn;t bother you with a security detail like that, but it would more likely than not involve some work of the more technical sort. I was wondering if you could spare any of your engineers?
Lt TKirr: ::ponders a moment:: Perhaps, if we just replicated enough for their scientists, to keep them awake past the cycle, they could finish replication.
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::stands on the pad and waits to be beamed::
LtDougMcKnight: One per squad should do it, if that's possible.
MajorAZinthys: ::taps his commbadge:: +Doug+ Major Zinthys to Lieutenant McKnight. Report.
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::steps up onto the pad, almost having to duck, a big smile on his face::
VAdm Blackthorne: ::perks an ear::
MCptAdamDrake: ::nods:: I'll have my teams set up a scanning zone and see if we find anything out of the ordinary.
EnsnDakota Ellis: Engerize... ::gets beamed::
WillFMarlowe: ::nods in agreement:: I'll begin replicating the formula. Let me know when you need it.
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::beams::
LtDougMcKnight: ::Nods to Drake before walking off a few steps to take the communique::
Lt TKirr: ::nods and continues to look over the profile::
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::standing just out side a pair of large doors:: Lead the way.. ::smiles::
WillFMarlowe: ::moves across sickbay and enters a small adjecent lab with a medical replicator and activates the console::
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::appears outside the capital, near the Central Laboratory::
LtDougMcKnight: +Zinthys+ McKnight here, sir. As far as we can tell, the enemy's gone, but Drake and I are planning to organize a few patrols, make sure they haven;t left any pockets of infantry in hiding.
MCptAdamDrake: ::walks over to his group:: I need three volunteers to join the security detail to find anything left over from the attempted attack.
Lt TKirr: ::walks through the doors, passing security::
MCptAdamDrake: Lambert> ::raises hand and moves up::
MCptAdamDrake: P'tel> ::raises her hand and does the same::
LtDougMcKnight: +Zinthys+ Also, the areas affected by the fires will have to be cordoned off, but if it's alright with you, I'd prefer to leave that to the locals.
MCptAdamDrake: Wesson> ::raises his hand and joins them::
WillFMarlowe: ::inputs the fomula and the required compound:: Computer, begin replication.
LtDougMcKnight: +Zinthys+ I figure these people will take that news better from their own people.
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::follows D'nali::
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::smiles enthusiastically as they enter a lab:: Jerun! Great news!
MajorAZinthys: +Doug+ Good. I have no problem with that. Let them police themselves. They're gonna have to someday, anyways.
MCptAdamDrake: Michael, I need you to coordinate with one of the Mreians about letting their people handle the damage control; after all, this is their area and establishments to handle. Then, head back to C&C.
Lt TKirr: ::approaches doorway to room:: Can I be of any assistance, Doctor?
MCptAdamDrake: Jeddin> ::nods:: Aye, Captain.
LtDougMcKnight: +Zinthys+ Looks that way, sir. How's the ship?
Lt TKirr: Jerun> ::turns:: D'nali! What news?
EnsnDakota Ellis: The core, D'nali?
MajorAZinthys: +Doug+ The Atlantis is fine, have no worries about her.
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::approaches Jerun and puts his hand on Jerun's forehead in proper male-male greeting::
WillFMarlowe: ::thinks for a moment:: Not at the moment, no. ::removes the first batch from the replicator platform:: Thanks, though.
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::looks behind him:: Yes, yes, just a moment.
VAdm Blackthorne: ::smiles, almost smugly::
MajorAZinthys: +Doug+ Anything else?
MCptAdamDrake: ::with his three squads, awaits McKnight::
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::turns to Jerun:: We have found a cure! We must show Ms. Ellis to the Core, so that she can make sure it is compatible.
LtDougMcKnight: ::Delays his response a few moments as he removes a Power Bar from his vest pocket and rips the wrapping open with his teeth:: +Zinthys+ No, sir. We're all copasthetic down here.
Lt TKirr: Very well. ::moves back to console to read::
MajorAZinthys: +Doug+ Excellent. Keep it up.
MajorAZinthys: +Doug+ Zinthys out.
MajorAZinthys: ::cuts the comm:
LtDougMcKnight: +Zinthys+ Will do, sir. McKnight out.
Lt TKirr: Jerun> ::smiles at his fellow scientist:: Yes, Ashani has informed us of the cure. Show her there. I'm busy working with our latest information. I may meet you there.
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::nods and turns back to Ellis:: This way!
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::follows::
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::hurries down a corridor::
WillFMarlowe: ::places the replicated containers in a crate, places the crate on the deck, and waits for the replicator to produce more::
Lt TKirr: D'nali> The Core is located underground here.
LtDougMcKnight: ::Walks back to Drake, and turns back to the 3 assembled sergeants:: Sullivan, Li, Baker, assemble your squads, and we'll convene back here in 5.
MCptAdamDrake: ::motions for his team to disperse, each one follows a different sergeant::
Lt TKirr: D'nali> Nodes are located in each city. Every sleep chamber is located underground, as we cannot protect ourselves from environmental shifts during our hibernation.
Lt TKirr: ::approaches an elevator and holds the door open for Ellis::
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::nods:: and the core feeds the nodes? ::gets into the elevator::
Lt TKirr: +Blackthorne+ T'Kirr to Admiral Blackthorne.
Lt TKirr: D'nali> Yes, it does. We've spent a good deal of time on it, since it has kept us alive for so long.
VAdm Blackthorne: +T'Kirr+ Blackthorne here.
EnsnDakota Ellis: well if this works now it's keep you awake.. ::smiles::
LtDougMcKnight: ::Falls in step beside Sergeant Li:: Sorry to break up your nice even 10, Li, but I think I'll be joining you. I guess I shouldn't be too surprised with the hours these people keep, but the joint's not exactly jumping.
MCptAdamDrake: Lambert! Keep me informed!
MCptAdamDrake: Lambert> ::nods as he walks away with McKnight:: Aye, Captain.
LtDougMcKnight: Li> ::Deliberately keeps his tone neutral, not wishing to betray any suspicion of a newly assigned officer, even one who has shown no obvious signs of incompetence:: Happy to have you, sir.
Lt TKirr: +Blackthorne+ Replication of the formula will most likely not be complete for the entire population before the Mreian hibernation cycle begins. I suggest we give their scientists the solution, so they may remain awake to finish
Lt TKirr: its replication.
VAdm Blackthorne: +T'Kirr+ An excellent solution.
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::grins:: Agreed!
LtDougMcKnight: ::Frowns imperceptibly, having guessed Li
Lt TKirr: +Blackthorne+ Dr. Marlowe is working on the replication now.
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::notices it gets cooler the further they go down::
VAdm Blackthorne: +T'Kirr+ Excellent work. Blackthorne out.
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::presses a polished button when the elevator finally slows and stops, and exits into a vast, cavernous chamber.
LtDougMcKnight: Li's probable attitude. After all, he remembers when he was back in the enlisted ranks, officers were often seen as arrogant and preachy, tasked with the oh so dire task of standing there and looking pretty::
Lt TKirr: ::works at the console, reviewing the data::
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::steps out behind him:: you guys really keep this thing under wraps..
WillFMarlowe: ::repeats the process before, stacking the next crate on top of the other::
Lt TKirr: +Ellis+ T'Kirr to Ensign Ellis. ::hears fuzz and static::
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::nods:: We must.
LtDougMcKnight: Do many of the men usually attend Sunday services, Sergeant?
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::hears her comm badge give a funny sounding chirp and presses it:: +taps++ Hello?
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::shows Ellis the chamber, pointing to the Core in the center, a large, cylindrical structure reaching from floor to high ceiling. The top appears to hold the main circulation chamber, where tubes radiate outward---
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::shurgs and enters the chamer::
LtDougMcKnight: Li>::Thinks it over briefly:: Depends which chaplain you'd be talking about sir, but a fair number of them, I suppose.
Lt TKirr: ---to people-sized pods all around in an orderly arrangement. Tubes also stretch upward into the bedrock::
EnsnDakota Ellis: Whoa
Lt TKirr: ::frowns:: Computer, locate Ensign Ellis.
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::looks around in awe::
EnsnDakota Ellis: I need to a diagram of how this all works
LtDougMcKnight: ::Nods slowly, figuring that's going to be his best way of introducing himself to the troops as he works to find that unique balance between buddy and disciplinarian with the enlisted::
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::moves to the stairway circulating up the building and starts to climb::
Lt TKirr: D'nali> Surely. It's located up here, where everything is controlled.
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::climbs behind him looking at all the tubes and pods:: Does everyone come here to sleep or do they have pods in their homes?
Lt TKirr: Atlantis Computer> ::beep:: Ensign Ellis is not on board Atlantis.
LtDougMcKnight: ::Considers that he could always try accepting that officer status is going to distance him from the enlisted, and perhaps he can form as strong a bond with his fellow officers,
LtDougMcKnight: despite vast differences in career tracks, politics and temperament::
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::shakes his head:: No, feeding tubes to everyone's homes would be more work than we can accomplish in such little time. They do come here.
MCptAdamDrake: ::checks the systems on the replicator systems - all within normal parameters::
Lt TKirr: ::moves to the door and heads to turbolift::
LtDougMcKnight: ::Mutters:: Sure, and maybe our Klingon buddies will embrace the joys of pacifism.
LtDougMcKnight: Li> ::Looks over:: Sir?
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::finally reaches top of stairs, looking down at a familiar view::
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::stops to look inside a pod::
Lt TKirr: D'nali> Come, come!
MCptAdamDrake: Hacker platforms are active... ::taps his PADD as the diagnostic completes::
LtDougMcKnight: Nothing, sergeant. So, shame about the enemy commander chickening out, huh? I was sorta looking forward to a good scrap, now that we had all our ducks in a row. Well, maybe next time.
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::presses a hand to a disk for security, then darts inside after being admitted::
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::follows him up::
Lt TKirr: Scientist1> ::looks up:: D'nali... what a pleasant surprise!
LtDougMcKnight: Li> ::Smiles slightly, well aware that combat situations are by design as uncommon as possible in peace time:: Maybe, sir.
Lt TKirr: T'Kirr> ::rides turbolift to Bridge::
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::introduces scientist to Ellis:: This is Ensign Ellis. She needs to see everything about the Core to help us make sure everything's compatible with the cure.
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::smiles and nods::
Lt TKirr: ::enters Bridge, looking over at who all is on duty, then moves to the Science console::
VAdm Blackthorne: ::looks up from his padd as T'Kirr enters::
EnsnDakota Ellis: lets start with a lay out of how the system works..
MajorAZinthys: ::sees t'kirr, keeps working::
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::moves to an important-looking viewer and pulls up a schematic::
Lt TKirr: D'nali> Here. This is the layout of the Core.
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::walks over and starts to look over the schematic.. reads a few things then starts to trace the mapped out systems with her finger::
MCptAdamDrake: Jeddin> +Drake+ Jeddin to Drake.
LtDougMcKnight: ::Gives up for the moment on bridging the officer/enlisted gap and turns instead to the only other officer present as the squad comes up on their assigned area,
LtDougMcKnight: careful not to ask him anything too complicated, thus making his scannign work any more difficult::
MCptAdamDrake: +Jeddin+ Go ahead, Michael.
Lt TKirr: T'Kirr> ::finds transporter log and tracks Ellis to the planet, and opens a channel, somewhat more clean, but still fuzzy due to Ellis' underground location:: +Ellis+ T'Kirr to Ellis.
LtDougMcKnight: Been on Atlantis long, ensign?
MCptAdamDrake: Jeddin> +Drake+ Fire containment finished, sir.
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::walks over to Scientist1 and catches up a little::
MCptAdamDrake: Lambert> ::to McKnight:: Three months, sir.
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::hears the fuzzy comm:: +Taps+ Yes?
MCptAdamDrake: +Jeddin+ Excellent, return to C&C, I'll meet you back there momentarily.
MCptAdamDrake: Jeddin> +Drake+ Aye, Captain, Jeddin out.
Lt TKirr: +Ellis+ Ensign, I assume you have found something?
LtDougMcKnight: Well, a lot can happen in 3 months. Getting used to Captain Drake for instance, maybe.
MCptAdamDrake: ::whistles as he closes the tricorder and moves off in the direction of the command center::
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::enlarges an area of the core:: Hmmm... ::then zooms out and traces the path from the section along a path way to the the pods::
LtDougMcKnight: Don't see many marines taking the engineering path. Least, I haven't. What's the story there?
MCptAdamDrake: Lambert> ::smiles:: He's not bad to work with, actually - he knows what he's doing. As for the engineering path I haven't heard much truth - rumors mainly.
MajorAZinthys: <<The real marines wouldn't take him? ::ducks::>>
EnsnDakota Ellis: +TKirr+ Yes Ma'am.. I think we have a way to give this to the populace in large numbers
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::hears T'Kirr's familiar voice, and watches Ellis::
LtDougMcKnight: (lol)
Lt TKirr: +Ellis+ Please explain.
LtDougMcKnight: ::Squints a bit, visually scanning a series of windows as they go:: Well, who needs truth? I've been looking to get in on the rumor mill. Do tell.
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::limbers over to watch Ellis::
MCptAdamDrake: {{Hmmmm.... ::jots down some notes:: Marines wouldn't take him...}}
LtDougMcKnight: (Planning Drake's suicide note? :-D)
MajorAZinthys: <<Uh-oh. He's taking notes. What am I gonna do now?>>
Lt TKirr: Jerun> ::enters Core Admin room, apparently too excited to keep away, and sees D'nali and Ellis::
EnsnDakota Ellis: +taps+ The Mreians sleep in pods which are controled though a central core.. There appers to be an IV system that delivers supplments to each pod thought the cycle.. I think we may be able to use this...
MCptAdamDrake: Lambert> ::smirks:: I heard that he couldn't handle the Marine Corps, but I've also heard that he got wounded in some big battle and almost died - and opted for Engineering instead.
MajorAZinthys: ::Resists the urge to bother McKnight again::
Lt TKirr: T'Kirr> ::tries to clean up channel transmission::
Lt TKirr: +Ellis+ Good work, Ensign. Keep me informed.
EnsnDakota Ellis: +TKirr+ Yes Ma'am..
VAdm Blackthorne: ::listens in, pleased::
Lt TKirr: ::cuts transmission and glances at the Admiral::
LtDougMcKnight: Well, the war wasn't much fun for anyone, I bet. Do the rumors say who he was fighting? Jem' Hadar, I hope?
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::turns to D'nali and points to a section of the core:: Can we get into that?
MCptAdamDrake: Lambert> Another branch of ideas. Heard he was with the initial invasion of Cardassia, but at the same time it was rumored he was doing some demolition work on Seti Tauras IV.
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::looks out the large windows at where she points:: Yes, we can do that.
MCptAdamDrake: Lambert> His past is really a mystery to us.
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::sees Jerun and smiles::
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::motions to Ellis:: This way, come with me.
LtDougMcKnight: Ah well, probably not Cardis then. That's good. The troops never did have a terribly great amount of respect for the Cardis, even if they do have the catchiest slur.
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::follows D'nali across a long steel gated cat walk and up a short ladder::
Lt TKirr: Jerun & Scientists1> ::watch Ellis and D'nali descend stairs from windows::
LtDougMcKnight: Back in my unit, we always used to tell the boys "No worries, just Cardis today. Their Jemmie moms are nowhere in sight."
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::opens a hatch, then fiddles with something, making a small opening open::
MCptAdamDrake: Lambert> ::grins::
LtDougMcKnight: Course, that didn't necessarily mean much, what with that creepy camouflage thing they did. Infrared goggles were also a comfort to the troops.
MCptAdamDrake: Lambert> You two should get together and discuss your war stories... ::laughs:: ...then come back and tell us all so we know.
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::follows him inside.. there's tubes coming from large black boxes.. a conver looking thing full of large cinlder looking tubes are feed into the box::
Lt TKirr: T'Kirr> ::remains on Bridge, overseeing progress::
EnsnDakota Ellis: ::picks up a clinder:: If we can get the cure to rus though this instead of the supplments then this can give the cure though the IVs in the pods..
WillFMarlowe: ::calls in some med techs to cart the crates into sickbay proper for easy transport when the formula is needed::
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::squeezes around to look at Ellis::
LtDougMcKnight: Oh, we tried that earlier. Didn't go so well. Says he was busting the Cardis before I ever enlisted.
LtDougMcKnight: Apparently, he was at a pretty rough school in 5th grade.
MCptAdamDrake: Lambert> You look really young, if I may say sir.
Lt TKirr: D'nali> What's wrong with the main feeders?
MajorAZinthys: <<LOL>>
VAdm Blackthorne: <<Daaaaamn, that's rough...>>
Lt TKirr: <<I missed something =P>>
EnsnDakota Ellis: This will be faster and there will be less of a chance that the compound will break down..
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::frowns:: I don't understand. What would cause a break down? I can see how it would be faster...
LtDougMcKnight: ::Grins:: Well, good to know, seeing as how I grew the beard way back when to make me look older. Trick is not to take anything too seriously. Especially not the higher ups.
EnsnDakota Ellis: how do your feeders work?
LtDougMcKnight: Unless they're actually in the room. Or, of course, unless they're me.
MCptAdamDrake: Lambert> ::mutters:: That could be debated...
MCptAdamDrake: Lambert> Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
MCptAdamDrake: Lambert> He's a good Marine from what I've seen, and a damned fine engineer.
LtDougMcKnight: Oh, I'm sure.
LtDougMcKnight: ::Takes a drink from his canteen:: How is he at cards?
Lt TKirr: D'nali> ::looks at a cylinder:: Well, the main line branches off to supply the capital here. The main line is then shunted through the surface, as running them underground to each city would have taken too much time...
Lt TKirr: D'nali> Is that what you mean?
MCptAdamDrake: Lambert> ::smiles:: Hasn't taken any replicator rations from me yet. ::winks::
LtDougMcKnight: Well, in that case, maybe I'll take him up on a game, assuming he ever asks again.
LtDougMcKnight: Anything on scans? Land mines are a bitch.

VAdm Blackthorne: Alright, we should be able to wrap this up next week....
LtDougMcKnight: Cool.
VAdm Blackthorne: Now I'm going to go to bed because I'm sick, so y'all are dismissed already. :-)
MajorAZinthys has left the room.
LtDougMcKnight: Night, admiral.
MCptAdamDrake: ::waves:: Night all! Feel better Admiral! :-)
VAdm Blackthorne: Thanks. G'night!
MCptAdamDrake: ::Runs out::

MCptAdamDrake has left the room.
Lt TKirr: Good night!
