LMajAdamDrake: Evening Admiral! ::waves::

Kiley Airell: Hey there Admiral

VAdm Blackthorne: Hey everyone.

7:30 PM

WillFMarlowe: 'Evening, Admira.

WillFMarlowe: Admiral, too.

LMajAdamDrake: ::looks around:: No McKnight?

LMajAdamDrake: No Idrys?

weissangelserene: Would that be Brian McKnight?

Kiley Airell: Idrys is OL

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Eric's on line

MajorAZinthys: no

ElRiov trIdrys has joined this chat.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Ok anyone here read marvel comics?

Kiley Airell: I have

Kiley Airell: been a while

LMajAdamDrake: Evening Idrys!

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: when did the change Rogue's real name from Marie Darkhome to Anna Raven?

Kiley Airell: That I couldn't tell ya

ElRiov trIdrys: hell if I know

MajorAZinthys: ::Blinks::

Kiley Airell: Last I knew it was Marie

ElRiov trIdrys: is this X Men?

EnsAaron Markus: Okay. I'm back...

Kiley Airell: yeah

ElRiov trIdrys: ah

MajorAZinthys: ::Didn't know she had a real name::

ElRiov trIdrys: I have only seen the movies

EnsAaron Markus: ::wonders what everyone thought of his sappy log::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: in the new X-Treame series they have her names Anna Raven.. That's just weird

Kiley Airell: That is weird

ElRiov trIdrys: meh, always trying to fix what ain't broke.

LtDougMcKnight has joined this chat.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: the new artist is also drawing Storm with short boy hair..

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Ick!

Kiley Airell: LOL

7:35 PM

ElRiov trIdrys: Speaking of X Men did you guys hear what Patrick Stewart said about the future of space exploration?

LtDougMcKnight: Nope.

ElRiov trIdrys: Now this is our fearless Captain Picard of the Enterprise

Kiley Airell: I didn't

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: that we need to invent weather control stations?

MajorAZinthys: He's just an actor. Who gives a flying fuck?

ElRiov trIdrys: and he says it would be dangerous for people to go into space, other than astronauts

LMajAdamDrake: What does he know...?

ElRiov trIdrys: NO WONDER people still preferred Kirk!

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::sick of snow and cold and ice.. is not an eskimo::

Kiley Airell: Picard is the best

weissangelserene: Heck Yeah!!

VAdm Blackthorne: So that's why he never wanted kids on his bridge.

ElRiov trIdrys: Picard "polls" his crew, Kirk just GOES IN AND DOES IT!! YEEEEEEEEEEEEEE HAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

EnsAaron Markus: Cowboy diplomacy.

ElRiov trIdrys: Right!

LtDougMcKnight: Yes, and sticks his warp nacelle into anything with green skin in the name of intergalactical peace and harmony.

EnsAaron Markus: lol

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: I wonder how much Kirk put out a year in child surppot

ElRiov trIdrys: He was out saving the Galaxy when Picard's grandfather was in diapers. {-P

LtDougMcKnight: I keep thinking back to the Enterprise episode in season one where Archer meets his dream girl...

ElRiov trIdrys: :-P

LtDougMcKnight: Sure, it turned out to be a shape shifting slug, but that never woulda stopped Kirk!

VAdm Blackthorne: Alright, before we begin, here is the official Atlantis policy on Captains.

LMajAdamDrake: Oh Lord...

Kiley Airell: oh boy

VAdm Blackthorne: Archer >= Kirk > Picard > Janeway > Sisko.

EnsAaron Markus: ::laughs::

Kiley Airell: LOL

VAdm Blackthorne: Now that's settled, we can move on.

Kiley Airell: Well, Archer is cool

MajorAZinthys: ::Blows into whistle::

MajorAZinthys: Attention!!

EnsAaron Markus: ::AA::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::AA::

Kiley Airell: ::AA::

LMajAdamDrake: ::@@::

LtDougMcKnight: Hey there.

MajorAZinthys: ::applauds::

WillFMarlowe: ::nods:: Welcome, Ensign.

ElRiov trIdrys: ::::palcytippalcpalcpalc:::: !!draoba emocleW !!OOHOOW ::sdualppa::

MajorAZinthys: ...

VAdm Blackthorne: Dr. Marlowe there is your department head and will indoctrinate you into our ways of quackery.

weissangelserene: Okay.

LtDougMcKnight: So, what's your pedigree?

VAdm Blackthorne: Now for the mission brief.

weissangelserene: Human

LtDougMcKnight: Sweet! One more for the monkey club!

VAdm Blackthorne: ::glances at McKnight::

EnsAaron Markus: ::laughs::

MajorAZinthys: ::Falls asleep::

LMajAdamDrake: ::pokes Allen::

VAdm Blackthorne: The anomaly that we tracked the crystalline ship into via harmonic trail has closed.

7:45 PM

VAdm Blackthorne: We were unable to find a guaranteed way to stabilize it, so Blackthorne wasn't about to get Atlantis stuck 10,000 light years away on the other side.

VAdm Blackthorne: Atlantis and Discovery are now scanning the immediate area with every sensor they can think of to try to find another lead, or even another of their gateways, but have had no luck so far.

VAdm Blackthorne: Questions?

LtDougMcKnight: Nadda.

VAdm Blackthorne: Alright then.

Jack Leirone has joined this chat.

ElRiov trIdrys: ::::in SB:::

LMajAdamDrake: ::looking at a panel in Engineering:: They're going to need more power than this.

EnsAaron Markus: Hey doc...How about you clear me for duty?

WillFMarlowe: ::in sickbay, scowling at a display of one of Alvarez's tissue samples::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::working at Science::

MajorAZinthys: ::Standing at Tactical, just looking confused some more::

Jack Leirone: ((sorry I'm late))

weissangelserene has left this chat.

ElRiov trIdrys: ::nods;: All right let's have a look at you. ::motions to biobed:: Any more dizziness?

VAdm Blackthorne: (( Welcome Jack! ))

LtJGAxelrod: ::Screwing around with the power in Engineering.::

Jack Leirone: ((sorry again!))

LtDougMcKnight: ::Shoves a booted foot in between his outstretched hands, trying to get himself out of the Chinese finger trap he'd decided couldn't be that hard::

LMajAdamDrake: Axe! ::calls out, looking over his shouldeR::

WillFMarlowe: Alvarez> ::in a tank full of hot water, yet is shivering--violently now::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Oh right, in security::

EnsAaron Markus: No.

Jack Leirone: ::walking in in time to hear Drake's comment:: Can do, Chief.,

VAdm Blackthorne: Anything at all, Ellis?

EnsAaron Markus: Feeling much better after meditating.

Kiley Airell: ((bak))

LMajAdamDrake: ::tosses him a PADD:: I need you to run these schematics for a new sensor array by Lieutenant Ellis in Science. I'm hoping I can boost efficiency and accuracy on our lateral arrays.

ElRiov trIdrys: Good. :::runs tricorder over him::: Hmmm this doesn't show anything out of the ordinary. You're cleared, but let me know if there's anything out of the ordinary, understood?

7:50 PM

EnsAaron Markus: ::nods::

Jack Leirone: ::sits at console, taps into dilithium crystal matrix::

EnsAaron Markus: ::walks out of sickbay and heads for TL::

LMajAdamDrake: {{Scratch my last comment.}}

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Nithing yet, Admiral

Kiley Airell: ::stands and looks over at Leirone::

WillFMarlowe: ::pulls on gloves and a breather and walks back into the quarantine area:: How do you feel, Crewman?

LtJGAxelrod: What?

LMajAdamDrake: ::tosses him a PADD:: I need you to run these schematics for a new sensor array by Lieutenant Ellis in Science. I'm hoping I can boost efficiency and accuracy on our lateral arrays.

EnsAaron Markus: ::enters TL:: Bridge.

WillFMarlowe: Alvarez> Really . . . cold . . . ::pukes::

EnsAaron Markus: <<gross>>

LtJGAxelrod: Aye.

LtJGAxelrod: ::Catches PADD.::

VAdm Blackthorne: Disappointing, but not unexpected.

WillFMarlowe: Meirill> Vital signs are deteriorating. His system is shutting down.

Jack Leirone: I can do a little work with those modifications we made on the matrix, earlier.

EnsAaron Markus: ::steps onto bridge and walks directly to helm/ops::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: I'm going to see if I can't rework some of the sensor settings, Maybe that will give us something we wouldn't normally pick up

WillFMarlowe: Get him out of there. ::administers a hypospray full of adrenaline:: Blankets!

LtJGAxelrod: ::Begins working on the new sensor array.::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Hears a chime at his door:: Ah, crap.

ElRiov trIdrys: :::busies self with inventory together with T'Nal:::

VAdm Blackthorne: Excellent.

Jack Leirone: ::taps away at console, rerouting some of the dilithium connections:: Matter/antimatter is all in check...just a little calibration here...a little calibration there...

weissangelserene has joined this chat.

WillFMarlowe: Meirill> It's too late. I've lost heartbeat, respiration, brain activity . . .

LtDougMcKnight: (WB)

ElRiov trIdrys: (( wb ))

WillFMarlowe: ((Welcome back.))

VAdm Blackthorne: (WB)

weissangelserene: ((sorry guys, comp glitch))

LMajAdamDrake: Axe, I need you to verify that we're not imposing on the science systems. Run the design and power systems and what not through the science people first, Lieutenant Ellis specifically.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::pressing buttons and doing all kinds weird things with the program grids::

7:55 PM

weissangelserene: ::walks into sickbay::

weissangelserene: Hello, anyone here?

EnsAaron Markus: ::logs in and checks to see what's been going on while he was away::

WillFMarlowe: On three. ::helps Meirill lift Alvarez onto the biobed::

ElRiov trIdrys: ::looks up, nods:: Yes. Anything I can do for you?

LtDougMcKnight: ::Manages to step over the finger trap, shifting his arms behind his back, momentarily grateful that he's apparently not QUITE too old for this crap yet:: Enter!

weissangelserene: Hi, yes, I'm the new ensign. I'm supposed to be checking in here.

LtJGAxelrod: Aye.

WillFMarlowe: Cortical stimulator. Setting three. Go now. ::from inside the quarantine area:: Doctors! Get gloves on and breather masks.

LMajAdamDrake: Hey Jack?

Jack Leirone: Yes sir?

LMajAdamDrake: How is the dilithium matrix lookin'?

ElRiov trIdrys: Ah. well I'm Dr Idrys and you should be checking in with our Chief Medical Officer, Dr Marlowe.

Jack Leirone: Better than ever. Seems our little mishap opened up for some further modifications.

ElRiov trIdrys: He's ... occupied right now ::nods in direction of ongoing operation:::

weissangelserene: OKay. Where is he? Do you know?

weissangelserene: ::looks over:: ohh

EnsAaron Markus: ::gets up and walks over to Ellis:: Anything I can do to help?

WillFMarlowe: Meirill> Nothing. He's gone.

LMajAdamDrake: This has impeded any other systems, has it?

ElRiov trIdrys: Come on over here I'll introduce you, Ensign ... ? I'm sorry I didn't catch your name. :;smiles::

WillFMarlowe: ::heaves a sigh:: Prep him for autopsy. Let me know when you're ready.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::looks up:: Should you be walking away from the helm like that?

ElRiov trIdrys: ::starts walking over to surgery area::

WillFMarlowe: ::leaves the quarantine area and pulls off his breather and gloves::

weissangelserene: ohh, Nicole, Nicole Weis, it's nice to meet you doctor.

WillFMarlowe: ::tosses them in a biohazard receptacle and runs a hand through his hair::

ElRiov trIdrys: ::nods:: Doctor Marlowe, this is our new Medical Officer, Ensign Nicole Weis.

weissangelserene: Hello Doctor.

EnsAaron Markus: We're not going anywhere. And I logged out. I thought I'd try to see if I could help.

Jack Leirone: Not that I know of, sir.

WillFMarlowe: ::nods to Weis:: Doctors, I need you to take a look at something.

ElRiov trIdrys: ::nods:: Sure what's up?

weissangelserene: ::moves closer::

LtDougMcKnight: Marine> ::Opens up the door and steps past the threshold, confused as to why his superior officer is standing with his arms folded behind his back, but forges on:: Uh...I have the weapons inspection report you asked for, sir.

EnsAaron Markus: But if I'm bothering you...:: turns and walks back to helm::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::moves on over:::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::picks up a padd:: See of you can get the sensors to do this ::hands him the padd::

EnsAaron Markus: ::stops and takes padd:: Aye.

WillFMarlowe: This way. ::walks over to the monitor he was using before:: Crewman Alvarez came here thirty minutes ago. His circulatory system was deteriorating and he was complaining of nausea. He died just a minute ago.

8:00 PM

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Thank you

VAdm Blackthorne: ::observing the interaction between Ellis and Markus::

LtJGAxelrod: ::Finishes the schematics and uploads them onto the PADD.:: I'll be back. ::Walks out of Engineering and makes way to TL.::

LtDougMcKnight: Marine> ::Extends his arm to hand McKnight the padd:: Everything seems to check out, sir.

ElRiov trIdrys: Nausea? And that was the cause of death? ::exchanges glances:: Wow that IS strange....

EnsAaron Markus: ::looks at padd:: Whoa.....::takes an empty science station and begins to do whatever it is he's looking at::

LMajAdamDrake: That's good. Can you get some extra power to the science sensors, from what I hear the bridge is lookin' for something we can't find.

LtDougMcKnight: I'm sure it does, lieutenant. Just leave it on the desk and I'll take a look at it in a bit.

WillFMarlowe: ::taps a few keys and pulls up the tissue sample displays: the tissue is badly damaged, apparently riddled with mutations at the cellular level:: This is what we found in a blood sample. I don't know what to make of it.

Jack Leirone: Yes sir. ::begins sending power to science sensors::

weissangelserene: ::looks over the information::

MajorAZinthys: <<::Wakes up:: Umm, sorry. I'm gonna go sleep now. Bye-Bye.>>

MajorAZinthys has left this chat.

WillFMarlowe: Cause of death seems to be circulatory failure. Why is anyone's guess.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: If the logarithms are to hard for you Ensign I can manage to do it myself

ElRiov trIdrys: :::examines data::: Weird.

Kiley Airell: ::softly to the Admiral only:: I hope we find this creature fast.

LtJGAxelrod: ::Enters TL.:: Science Lab.

VAdm Blackthorne: Indeed.

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> All of the sensor fiddling reveals a ghost of something.. that appears to be right on our hull.

EnsAaron Markus: ::looks at Ellis and smiles:: I think I can manage....::

Jack Leirone: Full power to sensors, Chief.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Well hell....o?

weissangelserene: Sir, even if it is unknown, would it be smart to go ahead and check other crew members and see if any of their cells are mutating like this?

LMajAdamDrake: Right on.

WillFMarlowe: Crewman Wilkstein> ::enters sickbay, his face a deep shade of mottled blue, almost doubled over in pain::

LMajAdamDrake: ::hears a console beeping - proximity alarm::

EnsAaron Markus: ::sees the ghost of something::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::looks to Ellis:: Report.

Jack Leirone: "Right on?"

LtDougMcKnight: Marine> Uh...very well, sir.

LMajAdamDrake: As in, that's a good thing, Ensign. ::grins::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::blinks and wipes the consoul to make sure she's seeing something and it's not just a finger print smudge::

Jack Leirone: ::turns at alarm::

LMajAdamDrake: What the hell? ::taps the console::

Kiley Airell: ::looks over to Ellis, hoping something good::

Jack Leirone: What is it, Chief?

WillFMarlowe: I have a hunch--::turns and looks at Wilkstein:: Another one.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Well Admiral there appears to be something out there..

EnsAaron Markus: ::almost starts to report then stops and lets Ellis::

VAdm Blackthorne: A trace of the anomaly?

LMajAdamDrake: I don't know, there's something out there. Only, 'something' is the most descriptive word I can use.

EnsAaron Markus: ::walks back over to helm/ops::

Jack Leirone: Wow. Not even the universal "anomaly?"

ElRiov trIdrys: Oh ... my ... let's get on this right away. :::walks over and helps crewman to biobed:::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Subtly turns slightly so as to be facing the ensign at all times, keeping it up until he leaves, and like a proper marine, McKnight can go back to feeling stupid in private::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: I don't think it's the anomaly.. Unless we have a gateway on out hull

WillFMarlowe: Nelson, blankets.

LtJGAxelrod: ::Exits TL. and makes way into the science lab.:: Lieutenant Ellis?

VAdm Blackthorne: Our hull? What do you see?

EnsAaron Markus: ::tries to bring up a visual on the "something"::

8:05 PM

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: It's not to clear Sir.. It's.. shadowy

WillFMarlowe: Computer, quarantine field around biobed three.

WillFMarlowe: ::hands Weis and Idrys some gloves and breather units::

VAdm Blackthorne: Concentrate all sensors on that spot. Coordinate to tie in Discovery's sensors if you have to.

VAdm Blackthorne: Visual.

weissangelserene: ::puts on the gloves and breather unit:: and you have no idea what is wrong with him?

ElRiov trIdrys: :::puts them on and begins prepping:::

EnsAaron Markus: ::brings up what visual he can:: That's the best I can do sir.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::examines the viewscreen::

Kiley Airell: ::looks at the viewscreen::

ElRiov trIdrys: I think we ought to send a message to the Bridge and have them warn others for symptoms

Jack Leirone: ::stands waiting for identification of fiendish thingy outside::

EnsAaron Markus: The sensors can't bring up anything solid.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::clears it up and zooms in on it::

VAdm Blackthorne: There. ::points:: It's a slight distortion, but it's there.

EnsAaron Markus: Yet...

WillFMarlowe: ::to Weis:: Alvarez had the same mottled skin patterns . . . and the same falling temperature. Crewman, can you hear me?

WillFMarlowe: Wilkstein> ::out of it::

VAdm Blackthorne: It almost looks like a cloaked ship.

EnsAaron Markus: ::sees the distortion::

LtJGAxelrod: Computer, locate Lieutenant Ellis.

WillFMarlowe: ::to Idrys:: Yes, we have to now. We know it's not an isolated incident.

weissangelserene: where they near some kind of radiation?

WillFMarlowe: Do what you can to keep him warm.

EnsAaron Markus: Shall I run a tachion sweep?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: We're being piggie backed?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Computer> Lt. Ellis is on the bridge

WillFMarlowe: ::to Weis:: I have a theory. Just a moment.

Kiley Airell: Interesting.

VAdm Blackthorne: We know they can cloak.

weissangelserene: Yes sir ::begins putting blankes on Wilkstein::

WillFMarlowe: +Bridge+ Dr. Marlowe to Bridge.

LtJGAxelrod: ::Walks out of the Science lab and back into the TL.:: Deck 1.

VAdm Blackthorne: +Marlowe+ Blackthorne here.

ElRiov trIdrys: :::finishes prepping:::

Jack Leirone: What's the move, Chief?

EnsAaron Markus: ::let's the Discovery know what's going on::

LMajAdamDrake: This is ridiculous - what the hell is that? I don't know, that's science's domain.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Backs into his desk, and starts rubbing the paper up against the corner, hoping to tear it::

WillFMarlowe: +Blackthorne+ We have a problem, Admiral. Two crewmembers have come to sickbay with the same symptoms--of what, we don't know; it seems to be some kind of mutation--and one is dead. Recommend health checks for the entire crew...

WillFMarlowe: ...starting with engineering personnel.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Hmm.. maybe if we created some kinda interfence. Rig the sheilds in a way that would mess up whatever it is long enough to get a fix on it

LtJGAxelrod: ::Enters the bridge and looks around for Lt. Ellis.::

8:10 PM

VAdm Blackthorne: +Marlowe+ ::frowns at the bad timing:: Go ahead, doctor. Be discreet about it.

Jack Leirone: Now what the hell is THAT, Chief? Mutation?

WillFMarlowe: +Blackthorne+ Acknowledged.

Kiley Airell: ::frowns, listening to what happened in sickbay:: Taht doesn't sound good.

EnsAaron Markus: ::nods and starts to rig the shields::

WillFMarlowe: +Drake+ Doctor Marlowe to Major Drake.

Jack Leirone: ((scratch))

VAdm Blackthorne: +McKnight+ Blackthorne to McKnight.

LMajAdamDrake: +Marlowe+ Go ahead, Doctor. ::walks to another console, scanning from a different set of sensors::

EnsAaron Markus: ::looks at Ellis:: Ready.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Mutters:: Son of a...

LtDougMcKnight: ::After a few unsuccessful tries, manages to tap his comm badge with his chin::

LtDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ McKnight here.

WillFMarlowe: +Drake+ The Admiral has authorized medical checks for all engineering personnel. Send your men down in groups of five. ::pauses, considers:: Start with personnel on damage control and repair following the attack.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::looks over at Markus and then at the Admiral::

VAdm Blackthorne: Stand by.

VAdm Blackthorne: +McKnight+ Report to the tactical station, Lieutenant.

EnsAaron Markus: ::Stands by.

EnsAaron Markus: ::

Jack Leirone: Medical checks?

LMajAdamDrake: +Marlowe+ Understood, Doctor. I'll send the first five now.

WillFMarlowe: +Drake+ Sickbay out.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::looks back at Markus:: Did you notifiy Eng first? I don't wanna get anyones panties in a bunch..

Jack Leirone: Grand.

Jack Leirone: ::rolls eyes::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Finally manages to tear the paper, allowing him to widen it and pull the toy apart::

LtJGAxelrod: ::Notices Lt. Ellis and approaches her.::

LMajAdamDrake: Potter, Lucas, P'Tel, Emerson, Harrison. Report to Sickbay for a Medical Check. No need to worry, it's just a quick check to make sure you are all OK.

LtDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ Tactical, sir?

WillFMarlowe: ::returns to Weis and Idrys:: Alvarez and Wilkstein had two things in common: these symptoms, and exposure to materials that might have been contaminated somehow through contact with the crystalline ship.

LMajAdamDrake: Named NPC> ::scamper away to Sickbay - one deck up::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::turns to see Axel:: Yes?

VAdm Blackthorne: +McKnight+ Major Zinthys is unable to man the station at this time, and you're his first backup.

Jack Leirone: Orders, sir.

LtJGAxelrod: I have the schematics her for you.

LtJGAxelrod: For the new sensor array.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::takes the padd and looks it over::

LtDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ I'll be right there, sir.

8:15 PM

WillFMarlowe: I was with this man in a compartment hit heavily in the attack. . . . ::bites his lip::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: done it, won't work, did that too, did that last week, won't fly... Oooo.. That's a new one.. ::looks up and smiles:: Thanks..

LtDougMcKnight: ::Walks out into the security office proper:: O'Grady, you're in charge until I get back!

EnsAaron Markus: ::nods:: +Drake+ Markus to Drake.

weissangelserene: would you like us to test you sir?

ElRiov trIdrys: That crystalline thing'll be the ruin of us all.

WillFMarlowe: One of you will have to. The other will conduct similar exams on the engineering personnel Major Drake is sending us.

LMajAdamDrake: +Markus+ Go ahead, Ensign. ::taps another console - still staring at the shadowy object::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Steps into the turbolift, hoping he won't have to explain that manning consoles isn't really his forte::

LtDougMcKnight: Bridge.

LMajAdamDrake: Engineering NPCs> ::stridge into Sickbay::

Jack Leirone: ::stands still, awaiting orders::

EnsAaron Markus: +Drake+ We're about to reek a little havoc on the shields to see if we can get a better look at this thing.

LtJGAxelrod: No problemo. ::Heads back for the TL.::

weissangelserene: ::looks at Idrys::

WillFMarlowe: Dr. Idrys, you will conduct the exam. Dr. Weis, see to the engineers.

weissangelserene: yes sir

ElRiov trIdrys: ::nods:: All right then. ::pulls out medical tricorder:::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Steps out onto the bridge, nodding to Blackthorne as he crosses over to his station:: Sir.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::stares at the spot on the viewer, waiting for McKnight to arrive::

WillFMarlowe: ::walks to a biobed and sits on it::

LMajAdamDrake: +Markus+ Understood. Jack, monitor the shield's polaron output. If it hits unsafe levels, iniatiate the secondary cooling subroutines.

Kiley Airell: do you think it is the Entity Admiral?

weissangelserene: ::looks at engineering personel:: okay guys, hop up on the bed one at a time and let me check you out

VAdm Blackthorne: McKnight. We may be into a firefight in a few, so be ready.

Jack Leirone: Yes, Chief. ::sits down and monitors::

LMajAdamDrake: Potter> ::smiles her smile and throws herself up there::

EnsAaron Markus: ::looks at Admiral and Ellis and waits::

VAdm Blackthorne: Yellow alert.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::adds the Eng tricks to the sensors::

EnsAaron Markus: ::initiates Yellow Alert::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::scanscanscans:::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Frowns at his console, mindful that he's never actually manned this station outside of a holodeck, as he raises shields::

LtJGAxelrod: ::Enters TL.:: Engineering.

weissangelserene: ::picks up tricorder and scans::

Jack Leirone: Polaron output at safe level.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Mutters to himself:: No problem, ship combat's just about a video game anyway.

EnsAaron Markus: ::didn't notice McKnight had arrived::

LMajAdamDrake: ::is bathed in yellow:: All right people, secondary battlestations. Prepare to lock down the warp manifold and prepare to open the plasma inducers.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods to Markus:: Execute.

kaeraashayu has joined this chat.

EnsAaron Markus: ::executes::

LMajAdamDrake: Potter> I'm not going to die, am I doctor? ::smiles::

LtDougMcKnight: Ready here, sir. No reason that should change; just try not to rock the boat too much.

8:20 PM

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::hates yellow alert.. the lights always make her look like she has jundice::

EnsAaron Markus: <<LOL>>

ElRiov trIdrys: ::frowns::: Oh boy this is NOT looking good. ::pauses:: I'm afraid we'll have to quarantine you as well. ::sighs::

Jack Leirone: ((or a Simpson))

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The shields reveal a small crystalline ship right where we thought it would be... and five more attached elsewhere on the hull.

weissangelserene: ::smiles back:: well, techniquelly we all die at some point but for now I want you to stay here, i'm afriad your going to be quarantined

WillFMarlowe: ::rubs a little a little at the foliate markings on his hand, which feel a little warm to the touch:: Right.

LMajAdamDrake: Potter> What? Why?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Admiral we have stowaways

EnsAaron Markus: ::eyes go wide::

LMajAdamDrake: Emerson and the rest - except for P'tel> ::get horrified look::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: I'm reading five others besides the one we see

LMajAdamDrake: ::hears the proximity alarms go nuts:: What the hell? Six ships?

LtDougMcKnight: ::Frowns:: Well, little bastards are getting free room and board, are they?

weissangelserene: I'm afriad that you show signs, i'm very sorry

Kiley Airell: Oh boy

WillFMarlowe: I'm going to conduct the autopsy on Alvarez. I can't contaminate the dead, now, can I? ::forces a chuckle::

kaeraashayu has left this chat.

LtJGAxelrod: ::Exits TL and enters Engineering. Notices all the hustle and bustle.:: Well, I came back at the right time.

EnsAaron Markus: ::checks to see if his phaser is tucked under the console::

VAdm Blackthorne: Six of them. Have they reacted to our scans?

ElRiov trIdrys: Right.

LMajAdamDrake: Jack? Polaron levels?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Not yet Sir

VAdm Blackthorne: Ellis, can you talk to them yet?

Jack Leirone: They are beginning to reach unsafe levels.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Works out a firing solution, but doesn't bring weapons online just yet, in case the admiral has other plans::

weissangelserene: I'm sorry

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: We can atempt to Sir

weissangelserene: ::turns to the next guy and starts to scan him::

LMajAdamDrake: Initiate cooling subroutines, that should keep them low.

LMajAdamDrake: Emerson> ::is silently praying as he is scanned::

WillFMarlowe: Computer, level two quarantine field from my position to the door of lab one.

Jack Leirone: ::initiates cooling subroutines::

LtJGAxelrod: ::Walks up to Drake.:: What's going on? and what can I do to help?

LtDougMcKnight: Admiral, I'm pretty sure we can bring our phaser fire in close enough to target some of these things. It'll be tough on the hull, but as long as we keep it to the furthest protruding parts, the armor should be able to take it.

VAdm Blackthorne: Hail them and transmit any sort of message dictating our peaceful intentions that you think you can say in their language.

weissangelserene: ::looks sad:: I'm sorry, you will have to be quarantined as well

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::running the crystalline program though the commcations grid::

WillFMarlowe: ::walks through the invisible corridor to the door and slips into the lab::

LMajAdamDrake: We're being invaded by the bastards - six ships attached to our hull.

VAdm Blackthorne: Good to know.

LMajAdamDrake: Emerson> Why? What symptoms?!

LMajAdamDrake: Emerson> ::takes a step backwards::

weissangelserene: please calm down

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Aye, Sir ::writes and sends message:: Message sent on all know bands sir

weissangelserene: you will be fine, we'll take care of you

VAdm Blackthorne: Airell, contact the assault bay and have them ready the fighters.

WillFMarlowe: Computer, begin autopsy recording.

Kiley Airell: Aye Admiral

EnsAaron Markus: ::monitors for response::

LMajAdamDrake: Emerson> I ... I ... have work to do ... Major Drake ... I'll get in trouble ...

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: No replies

8:25 PM

WillFMarlowe: ::pulls on a pair of gloves and walks up to Alvarez' corpse, which is now a solid blue color::

VAdm Blackthorne: Ampifly the communication to specifically target one of the ships.

weissangelserene: No, you don't have work to do, now if you would just go lie down on that biobed for me

LtDougMcKnight: ::Feeds the positions of those ships not reachable by phaser fire into the targeting computers of their torpedoes:: Sir, I can definitely hit all of these guys, but it'll put a ding in that nice new paint job.

Kiley Airell: ::contacts the assault bay, hoping they don't have to go out::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Aye Sir

weissangelserene: ::moves toward him slowly::

LMajAdamDrake: Jack, Axe! ::calls them over::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::targets one ship and sends message again.. also sends it as an echowave just in case::

Jack Leirone: ::walks over::

EnsAaron Markus: ::doesn't like the sound of "ding"::

VAdm Blackthorne: Keep it ready, McKnight, the paint job be damned. they put more than a ding in it last time.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::hopes she worked out all the right bugs and they're not just getting AFLACK over and over again::

EnsAaron Markus: ::continues to monitor for a response::

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Four of the ships detach and decloak.

LtDougMcKnight: Shall I power up weapons, sir?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: we have movement

EnsAaron Markus: Sir....

EnsAaron Markus: They're decloaking.

WillFMarlowe: Subject is Crewman Ishmael Alvarez, age 28. Species is human--::picks up a laser scalpel::--cause of death seems to be circulatory failure. However, there is a massive amount of skin discoloration . . .

VAdm Blackthorne: (( Unfortunately, they use Geico... ))

Kiley Airell: (( LOL ))

EnsAaron Markus: <<LOL>>

LMajAdamDrake: We may have a fight on our hands. I may need a quick transition of power from sensors to weapons and shields. Jack, reset the EM relays and prepare to shunt all power to weapons and shields.

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> About the same time, four more detach from Discovery and decloak.

WillFMarlowe: ::goes to cut, and the skin parts rigidly as if it were a layer of thin plastic; the tissue underneath is rock-hard::

weissangelserene: ::guides Emerson to a biobed and goes to scan another one of the engineers::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Keeps track of the new positions of those ships, the computer thankfully doing a lot of the work by automatically tracking those ships::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: four of the ships have detached from the hull

LMajAdamDrake: Emerson> ::backs away:: No, I can't stay...

Jack Leirone: ::nods, goes to do so::

EnsAaron Markus: ::begins to worry about the situation, then calms down self down::

LtDougMcKnight: Sir...what she said. A fistful pof bogies.

LMajAdamDrake: P'tel> ::stands all Vulcan-like, waiting to be scanned::

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Incoming hail.

ElRiov trIdrys: Crewman ... just calm down. Doctor's orders.

EnsAaron Markus: <<*calms self down>>

LMajAdamDrake: Emerson> ::sprints for the sickbay doors::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: We have an incoming message

VAdm Blackthorne: ::stands and faces the screen:: Put it on.

Kiley Airell: This should be interesting

Jack Leirone: ::resets EM relays and prepares:: Ready.

LMajAdamDrake: Axe> I need you to get to the shuttle bay and prepare the fighters with a standard engineering diagnostic.

WillFMarlowe: ::frowns and makes an incision down the front of the torso, with similar results; he tries to pry the cut open a bit to expose the underlying tissue, with no success::

EnsAaron Markus: ::puts on screen:: On screen.

LMajAdamDrake: {{Change that to Axe, }}

weissangelserene: ::grabs him before he gets to the door::

WillFMarlowe: +Idrys+ Marlowe to Idrys. Report to lab one.


ElRiov trIdrys: +Marlowe+ On my way. :::heads to lab:::

8:30 PM

weissangelserene: ::hypo's emerson and drags him to a biobed::

LMajAdamDrake: Emerson> ::faints::

EnsAaron Markus: ::puts hands over ears at the screeeee's::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::Pressing buttons::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Winces at the sound of fingernails across a chalkboard:: They could use a tenor section.

VAdm Blackthorne: I am Admiral Blackthorne of the Federation Starship Atlantis. Our intentions toward you are peaceful.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: :;working to get more out of the commaction::

LMajAdamDrake: Harrison> ::Gets a horrified look on his face and sprints into the hallway and into the turbolift:: Engineering!

ElRiov trIdrys: :::arrives in lab one:::

EnsAaron Markus: ::lowers the volume a bit::


Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::smacks herself in the forehead::

VAdm Blackthorne: We mean you no harm.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::readjusts::

VAdm Blackthorne: The original attack was unintentional.

Kiley Airell: ::wonders if we sound like they do::

weissangelserene: Shit!!

WillFMarlowe: Potter, P'Tel> ::begin shivering violently as their circulatory systems fall apart::


WillFMarlowe: Dr. Idrys, take a look at this.

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The channel is cut.

LtJGAxelrod: ::Heads off for the Shuttlebay.:: (I hate my comp)

ElRiov trIdrys: :::does so::: Hmmmmmmm ...

WillFMarlowe: ::pokes Alvarez's corpse, which is unnaturally solid::

weissangelserene: +security+ we have a quaratined man running free headed to engineering

VAdm Blackthorne: I didn't like the sound of that. Red alert.

LtDougMcKnight: Gladly, sir.

EnsAaron Markus: ::tries to reestablish the channel, and shakes head at Blackthorne::

LMajAdamDrake: ::watches the light hit red:: Here we go people. Jack, standby shields and weapons!

Jack Leirone: Chief, permission to go to shuttlebay for fighter deployment.

ElRiov trIdrys: ::shakes head:: That is unusual ... how could this happen so soon after death?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: damn I thought I had the program worked out better then that.. ::,makes a note to kick the crap out of the computer later::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Powers up all weapons:: Sir, permission to scrape the little shits off our hull?

LtJGAxelrod: ::Sees red Alert. Books it into TL.::

ElRiov trIdrys: I've heard of rigor mortis but ... ::shakes head again::

LtJGAxelrod: Fighter Bay.

weissangelserene: +marlowe+ sirs i need you help please

LMajAdamDrake: If that is ordered, Mr. Leirone, I will send you.

EnsAaron Markus: ::sends message to engineering to ready the engines::

Jack Leirone: ::nods::

weissangelserene: ::looks at potter and P'Tel and moves them to bio beds to lay down::

Jack Leirone: Standing by.

LMajAdamDrake: Harrison> ::Dashes into sickbay, hitting Jack as he runs::

Jack Leirone: Watch it.

VAdm Blackthorne: We're not going to start the fight.

LMajAdamDrake: Harrison> We're all going to die! Don't you see?!

WillFMarlowe: ::looks up, then nods to the door:: Go. Also--look out for the new doctor. Maybe have T'Nal follow her around. Just until she gets her sea legs. Understood?/

Jack Leirone: ((don't you mean Engineering, Drake?))

LtJGAxelrod: ::Sprints out of TL and into the Fighter Bay. Begins working on getting the fighters ready.::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: we're just finish it ::smiles::

LMajAdamDrake: {{Yes. Sorry.}}

VAdm Blackthorne: But if they start it, by gawd we'll finish it.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: *we'll

8:35 PM

ElRiov trIdrys: Of course. And by the way ... there seems to be a heightened sense of panic in the people coming from Engineering. I don't like it.

LMajAdamDrake: ::grabs Harrison and pushes him into a chair:: Sit, Ensign, take a breather.

WillFMarlowe: Neither do I. There might be some psychological component to the problem.

WillFMarlowe: Keep an eye out. I'll see what I can find out in here.

EnsAaron Markus: ::watches for the crystals to make a move::

LMajAdamDrake: ::taps a console:: Jack, confirm equal distribution of power to engines and weapons?

LtDougMcKnight: Sir, with respect, we haven't started this. They've attached themselves to our hull. Our security is threatened as we speak.

ElRiov trIdrys: ::nods, heads back to SB:::

LMajAdamDrake: Harrison> We're infected! All of us!

LtJGAxelrod: +Blackthorne+ Lieutenant Axelrod to the Admiral.

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The crystals start to fly around each other in circles while moving in and out, much like the ghosts in the attract screen of Pac-Man.

Jack Leirone: ::grinds his teeth...thinks that uncontrollable people like Harrison should be quarantined...forever::

WillFMarlowe: Potter> ::pukes::

ElRiov trIdrys: ::q:: T'Nal ... make sure you keep an eye out for Dr Weis. OK?

Jack Leirone: ::nods:: Confirmed, sir.

LMajAdamDrake: Stand down, Ensign. You're going to be all right.

VAdm Blackthorne: We will not fire the first shot.

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > :::ACHOO::: Of course Hakkie.

weissangelserene: ::jumps to not get puked on::

VAdm Blackthorne: +Axelrod+ Blackthorne here.

LtDougMcKnight: +O'Grady+ Lieutenant, I'm sending the information form my tactical display to your console. I want you to send security teams to all the airlocks in the vicinity of those ships. Maximum containment.

Kiley Airell: what is going on . . . ?

WillFMarlowe: Potter> Sorry . . .

weissangelserene: don't worry about it, i've had worse

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: why do I suddenly wanna send a little yellow half circle out there after them?

Kiley Airell: ::laughs::

LtJGAxelrod: +Blackthorne+ Permission to ready my fighter to be prepared to enter combat at a seconds notice.

WillFMarlowe: ::picks up a few clamps and forces Alvarez's chest cavity open::

LMajAdamDrake: ::runs a hand across his sweat-covered forehead::

VAdm Blackthorne: +Axelrod+ That is an inappropriate question to bother the CO with in the middle of a red alert situation. If I am going to use the fighters, I will give the word.

ElRiov trIdrys: :::heads over to another patient::: OK now ... ::picks up tricorder, runs scan:::

LMajAdamDrake: Harrison> ::starts to shake::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Takes a second to look over all the firepower he's controlling for the first time:: Say, this lady has more teeth than an old wife.

LtJGAxelrod: +Blackthorne+ Aye.

LtDougMcKnight: Uh...with dentures.

VAdm Blackthorne: Hopefully more than they have.

EnsAaron Markus: ::wonders about the other crystals still on the hull::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::snorts::

Jack Leirone: ::mutters to self:: Permission to hypospray Harrison...::under breath::

VAdm Blackthorne: McKnight, last time they wounded us very badly with a ramming maneuver. Be ready to evade/blow the hell out of anything that tries that again.

8:40 PM

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Do you need a personal momemt there, McKight?

ElRiov trIdrys: ::nods to T'Nal::: Get some blankets.

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > :::does so, throws them over Harrison:::

LMajAdamDrake: Harrison> ::stands and tries to walk, mutters, vomits on Jack and then collapses on top of him::

EnsAaron Markus: ::works out an evade strategy and programs it into the computer::

LMajAdamDrake: ::turns and sees Harrison fall:: What is going on here? +Sickbay+ Drake to Sickbay, Medical Emergency in Engineering.

LtDougMcKnight: They got past the energy field last time because it was just more mass than the shields were designed to ward off with one blow at that velocity. But if we focus the shield power to the appropriate spots, it may do the trick.

Jack Leirone: ::sits still and blinks:: Karma police got me.

LMajAdamDrake: {{LOL!}}

VAdm Blackthorne: Excellent.

EnsAaron Markus: I have the evade part ready, sir...The rest is up to the Lt.

VAdm Blackthorne: <<How much longer can y'all sim?>>

LMajAdamDrake: {{Whenever}}

Jack Leirone: ::throws the collapsed NPC off him:: Sickening.

LtDougMcKnight: (I'm good for awhile.)

Jack Leirone: ((me too))

EnsAaron Markus: <<all freaking night, sir>>

WillFMarlowe: ::looks up at Drake's page:: +Weis+ Get to engineering and see what's going on.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (I gotta stop for Banshee other wise I'm cool )

Kiley Airell: (( same here ))

VAdm Blackthorne: (( Wait, Banshee's in two d- oh, damn! ))

EnsAaron Markus: <<takes a big sip of pepsi>>

weissangelserene: ::looks at Idrys:: sir, one of patients ran out of here before i could stop him, he ran to engineering

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (LOL)

ElRiov trIdrys: (( LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ))

LtDougMcKnight: ::Programs the tractor beam to automatically lock onto any ship attempting the same maneuver that crippled them last time:: Ass holes won't get away with the same crap twice, sir.

Kiley Airell: ((LOL))

LMajAdamDrake: {{::grins::}}

ElRiov trIdrys: Oh great ... I'll be back. :::heads out into corridor, into TL:::: Engineering. ::TL moves:::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::TL doors open, steps out:::

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The two ships on the hull start to drill.

LMajAdamDrake: Jack, go change or something. We'll handle this.

weissangelserene: +Marlowe+ Idrys is going there sir

WillFMarlowe: +Weis+ Acknowledged.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Uhoh

LMajAdamDrake: ::hears the structural integrity alarms go off:: Fuck, not now. They're trying to penetrate the hull.

LtJGAxelrod: ::Gets into his flight suit.::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: great we have crystalline leashes

EnsAaron Markus: ::notices the drilling::Sir, they're drilling into the hull.

Jack Leirone: Gladly sir. ::heads off to quarters to change:: Better not be contagious.

LtDougMcKnight: Sir, may I consider the word given?

VAdm Blackthorne: The word is given.

weissangelserene: +marlowe+ i'll clean up here and try to get these guys calmed down

Jack Leirone: ::exits eng...enters TL::

VAdm Blackthorne: Airell, mobilize the fighter squadron!

WillFMarlowe: ::probes--which is a fancy way of saying "pokes at"--Alvarez' viscerals, the innermost of which haven't solidified yet but are in the process of doing so::

LMajAdamDrake: +Blackthorne+ Drake to Bridge.

Kiley Airell: Aye Sir

VAdm Blackthorne: +Drake+ Bridge here.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Taps the appropriate controls. One of the drilling ships is hit dead on by a phaser blast at full power, angled so as to not hit the hull when it penetrates::

ElRiov trIdrys: ::enters Engineering, sees Drake::: Got here as soon as I could ...

LMajAdamDrake: +Blackthorne+ They're drilling into the hull, sir, suggest we polarize the hull plating to allow some sort of a resistance. It'll slow them down a bit.

LMajAdamDrake: ::sees Idrys and points to the seizuring Harrison::

8:45 PM

VAdm Blackthorne: +Drake+ Polarize the hull plating? That hasn't been done in two hundred years.

LtDougMcKnight: We DO have ablative hull armor. It can take a beating...for awhile.

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The drilling ship that was hit shakes it off like a champ.

Kiley Airell: ::stands and heads off to the bay, contacting those who needs::


ElRiov trIdrys: Oh man. :::bends over Harrison, taps his commbadge::: Computer site to site transport to Sickbay in quarantine area, erect a level five forcefield around patient, NOW ...

ElRiov trIdrys: :::watches Harrison shimmer away:::

ElRiov trIdrys: +T'Nal+ Incoming patient inside a quarantine ...

weissangelserene: ::watchs Harrison shimmer in::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::hands off Sci and heads for the fighter bay::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Launches a quantum torpedo from the forward launcher. It follows an indirect path, like something out of Family Circus, and finally detonates on the protruding edge of the crystalline ship's hull::

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION< The eight ships that aren't drilling into hulls start to swarm around Atlantis and Discovery, firing their weapons.

Jack Leirone: ::enters quarters and begins to change:: Damn that is some cold shit.

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > ::aCHOO:: Acknowledged Hakkie.

LMajAdamDrake: +Blackthorne+ I apologize, Admiral, I meant magnetize the hull plating.

VAdm Blackthorne: +Drake+ Do it. Blackthorne out.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (Dude when did we jump to eight ships?)

VAdm Blackthorne: ( There were four more on the Discovery. )

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (ahh)

weissangelserene: ::feels slightly useless so moves to work with T'Nal::

WillFMarlowe: ::watches as the corpse crystallizes before his eyes; even the skin seems to form what look like icicles on the hair and uniform, and small bright shards poke through the eyelids::

LMajAdamDrake: Hey! Kendricks! Initiate the magnetized relays for the hull suppressing system. Prepare to magnetize the hull.

LtDougMcKnight: ::The first ship on the hull continues to be bombarded by phaser fire, mercilessly punnding away at its hull::

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The ship takes damage, but keeps drilling.

EnsAaron Markus: ::Gets up and heads for fighter bay::

Jack Leirone: ::feels shocks from attacks:: Ooh, I wanna be out there.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::walks into the bay and heads for the lockerroom to suitup.. then comes out and heads for her fighter:: This time wont be a mistake..

ElRiov trIdrys: ::q:: First sign of trouble, make sure you get these people to Sickbay. If they show any qualms beam 'em site to site.

VAdm Blackthorne: Fire all phasers at any targets of opportunity.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Hits the second ship with another torpedo, waiting for the fighters to take over that job::

LtJGAxelrod: ::Finishes up readying the ship and hops into the cockpit of his. Begins firing up.::

Jack Leirone: ::finishes dressing and dashes to shuttlebay::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::climbs in and starts preflight::

LMajAdamDrake: Structural integrity on deck nineteen section forty-seven alpha is down to seventy-six percent!

EnsAaron Markus: ::enters bay and heads for locker to suit up::

VAdm Blackthorne: I'm manning my fighter. You have the bridge McKnight. Keep an open commlink with me at all times.

ElRiov trIdrys: :::heads back to SB:::

Jack Leirone: ::magically enters shuttlebay! and climbs into his fighter::

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > :::assisting Weis:::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Fires a full spread of quantum torpedoes into the crystalline ship formation, maximum yield, then targets phasers on whatever ships are hit, hoping to blow a few of themout of the water, rather than take them all at once::

EnsAaron Markus: ::grabs helmet and jumps into fighter::

WillFMarlowe: ::cuts away tissue samples of the dermal layers, internal organs, and what used to be blood and plugs them into the computer for analysis::

Jack Leirone: Ah...such bliss. ::fires it up::

Jack Leirone has left this chat.

WillFMarlowe: +Weis+ Report.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Doesn;t look up as Blackthorne leaves, but nods all the same:: First command. Sweet.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::enters TL and makes it haul ass to the assault bay::

Jack Leirone has joined this chat.

8:50 PM

EnsAaron Markus: <<LOL>>

ElRiov trIdrys: ::::re-enters SB and makes way over to patients:::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::enters the bay, suits up and grabs his helmet::

WillFMarlowe: Wilkstein> ::pukes and shivers uncontrollably::

Kiley Airell: ::Gets fighter ready, checks to make sure that everyone else is doing waht they are suppose to do::

LMajAdamDrake: {{How many drillers are there?}}

Jack Leirone: All ready. ::prepares to deploy::

EnsAaron Markus: ::runs through preflight in record time::

VAdm Blackthorne: (( Two. ))

LtJGAxelrod: ::Hands rest on the throttle, ready to blast into battle.::

LtDougMcKnight: You brainiacs got anything for me? Something with tachyons maybe?

VAdm Blackthorne: ::climbs into his fighters and hurries through preflight::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::puts on her teal and black headband before putting on the helmet::

LMajAdamDrake: Structural integrity on deck four section twelve beta is down to sixty percent. Magnetize the hull, Ken! Magnetize it now!

weissangelserene: +marlowe+ sir, they have gone through convalusions, vomiting but none are dead yet, Harrison had escaped to engineering but is back now under level 5 quarintine

VAdm Blackthorne: ::puts on the helmet, lowers the canopy and powers on::

LMajAdamDrake: Kendricks> Aye, Major. ::runs to the console and magnetizes the hull::

EnsAaron Markus: ::readies to take off and waits for order::

VAdm Blackthorne: +Squadron+ Comm check.

WillFMarlowe: Meirill> ::scanning Potter:: Doctor Weis, I'm losing vital signs. He's lost consciousness.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Looks up to see all the senior officers have left for fighter duty:: Son of a bitch!

ElRiov trIdrys: :::makes way over to quarantine area, looks in on Harrison:::

VAdm Blackthorne: << Fighters us @ >>

Jack Leirone: ::pulls out St. Christopher:: Protect us, Chris.

LtJGAxelrod: +Squad.+ Gryphon reads loud and clear.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: +Squad+ Ready and waiting here Sir

Jack Leirone: Wraith awaiting launch orders, Admiral.

WillFMarlowe: +Weis+ Understood. Do what you can.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Snags one of the crystalline ships with a tractor beam, and coordinates his fire with the Discovery. Both ships hit it with everything they've got::

Jack Leirone: ((  ))

EnsAaron Markus: @+Squad+ Ready, sir.

Kiley Airell: @+squad+ Ready

VAdm Blackthorne: (( Starcraft, nice. ))

WillFMarlowe: ::taps a few buttons as the samples are analyzed::

LtJGAxelrod: ((When did we get all these new fighter pilots? Last time I checked, it was me, T'Kirr, Eliis, and Black))

weissangelserene: ::moves over to potter:: +marlowe+ do you have any idea bout how to hel pthem out, we're about to lose another one

VAdm Blackthorne: ((When we got all these new people. ::grins:: ))

Jack Leirone: @+squad+ Ready.

VAdm Blackthorne: @ +Squadron+ Go for launch!

LtJGAxelrod: ((good stuff))

WillFMarlowe: Meirill> Losing organ functions . . .

LtJGAxelrod: @::Punches throttle.:: Lets go.

Kiley Airell: ((Kiley was always a pilot . . . just thought Sickbay was her place))

Jack Leirone: @::throttles:: +squad+ Insert one-liner here, boys and girls!

VAdm Blackthorne: @ ::shoots out of the bay::

EnsAaron Markus: @::launches::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Watches the ship blow to bits under the combined assault. Alright, a full volley seems to get their attention.

weissangelserene: damn it! ::tries what she can::

Jack Leirone: @::launches::

WillFMarlowe: +Weis+ I don't know yet. Do what you can to keep them warm and keep their circulatory systems functional--that's why we lost Alvarez.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: @::follows the rest::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::monitors Harrison:::

LtJGAxelrod: @+Squad+ Multiple targets, which do we engage?

VAdm Blackthorne: @+Squad+ Primary targets are the drillers on both ships! Remember that the Discovery doesn't have fighters.

Kiley Airell: @::launches::

weissangelserene: ::adds more blankets and gives him a hypo::

LMajAdamDrake: The Magnetize of the hull isn't working. Hull breach in twenty minutes at current rate.

EnsAaron Markus: @::takes position low and right of the Admiral::

VAdm Blackthorne: @+McKnight+ Nice job!

LMajAdamDrake: Hollander, repair team to deck nineteen. Establish engineering containment forcefields.

LtJGAxelrod: @+Squad+ Aye, commencing attack on Drillers.

LMajAdamDrake: Powers, repair team to deck four. Same orders.

Jack Leirone: @+squad+ I got Discovery. I'll hit the drillers.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: @::heads for one of the Atlantis drillers::

LtDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ That's why they pay me the big bucks, sir. Oh, wait...

EnsAaron Markus: @::readies all weapons::

8:55 PM

VAdm Blackthorne: @ ::flies in low across Atlantis's hull toward a driller, letting fly several microtorps::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Starts ignoring the drillers. The fighters can handle it:

LtJGAxelrod: @::Goes into attack mode and fires off phaser shots at one of the drillers.::

EnsAaron Markus: @+squad+ I'll take your six and back up.

WillFMarlowe: ::frowns at the results: a series of "unknowns," "no matches found in Starfleed medical databases," etc.::

Kiley Airell: @::flies towards teh Discovery and the diller::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: @::fires at the driller::

Jack Leirone: @::heads for a driller on the Discovery, firing::

VAdm Blackthorne: @ +Squad+ Those of you I haven't had time to do a checkout flight with, consider this it. Remember this new Mustang-class fighter has omnidirectional phasers, so watch your six.

LtDougMcKnight: +Discovery+ Discovery, use your tractor beams to effect. These ships aren;t the dreadnought we fought last time. Take away their mobility, and we can pound the crap out of them.

weissangelserene: ::gets more blankets and puts them on all of the patients and scans them to see how far along they are::

VAdm Blackthorne: @ ::hits the driller with the omnidirectionals as he strafes by it::

LtJGAxelrod: @::Passes over driller, and uses omni to continually fire.::

Jack Leirone: @::makes direct hits::

EnsAaron Markus: @::fires at driller right behind Axel::

Jack Leirone: @+squad+ Someone got my six?

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The second driller penetrates the hull on both ships.

Jack Leirone: @+squad+ I need backup!

ElRiov trIdrys: :::scanning Harrison:::: ::q:: Come on man, don't let it win ... don't let the bastard win.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: @::fires another spead:: Get off you overgrown reget from a jewery store

EnsAaron Markus: @+squad+ On my way Jack.

LMajAdamDrake: Kendrick> I'm on it. ::sprints out with his team::

WillFMarlowe: ::as he is biting his lip and scowling thoughtfully, there are several sparks; several bits of shrapnel fly as the samples break free of their slots and rejoin with the corpse::

LtJGAxelrod: ((Scratch the action cloons))

Jack Leirone: @+squad+ Danke schon, Markus.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Watches the Discovery grab a ship with their tractor beam, and doing the same, shoves his ship into a collison course with the other one::

ElRiov trIdrys: ::shakes head:: Nothing other than what Marlowe told us to do.

EnsAaron Markus: @+squad+ I'm right behind you.

LtJGAxelrod: @::Makes a half loop and begins firing again.::

Jack Leirone: @::fires::

ElRiov trIdrys: Other than this it's beyond our control ...

weissangelserene: ::frowns:: i don't like it

LtDougMcKnight: Marines> ::Open fire on the crystals. The marines fight in two ranks. Marines in front have energy repelling riot shields. The second fires away with their rifles on burst setting over the front rank's heads::

WillFMarlowe: Wilkstein> ::curls into a fetal position and groans miserably::

EnsAaron Markus: @::waits for Jack to clear then fires::

WillFMarlowe: +Idrys+ Status report.

Jack Leirone: @::makes more direct hits:: What's the status on the drillers?

EnsAaron Markus: @+squad+I think we scuffed it.

LtJGAxelrod: @+Squad+ Use phaser fire only for the Atlantis driller, micros could cause a larger opening in the hull.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: @+squad+ they've made more then dents.. I always hated drills.. to many rootcanal flash backs ::fiires more short bursts while flying around it from all kinds of weird angels::

9:00 PM

LMajAdamDrake: Computer, seal Main Engineering. Authorization Drake Alpha Episilon 19 Vega.

weissangelserene: ::quickly moves to wilkstein and puts another blanket on him and rubs his back, talking to him quietly::

VAdm Blackthorne: @ +Squad+ Hit them harder, two of them have already breached.

LMajAdamDrake: Computer> Acknowledged, Main Engineering sealed.

ElRiov trIdrys: +Marlowe+ We're doing all that we can to just keep them stable Sir. Not much luck in trying to reverse this ... if that's posible.

Jack Leirone: @+squad+ Let's get 'em! ::turns around for another pass::

WillFMarlowe: +Idrys+ Any new cases arrive?

LtDougMcKnight: Marines>::Both ships finish their volleys. Between the two of them contributing overlapping firepower, sensors count two more shiny debris fields::

LtJGAxelrod: @::Holds fire for a second to transmit more power to phasers. Resumes firing.::

Jack Leirone: @ ::to self:: One more pass...::looks upward, knowing he's heard that somewhere...::

Kiley Airell: @+Squad+Aye Sir ::brings fighter around for another shot::

EnsAaron Markus: @::turns with Jack and starts to role with finger over trigger::

VAdm Blackthorne: @ +Squad+ New members, be sure to watch you stores list. Those weapons are all you have... no more microtorps and you're down to phasers.

ElRiov trIdrys: +Marlowe+ None just yet Sir so I guess we can count our blessings

LtDougMcKnight: Marines> ::Further down the attacked corridors, mariens set up stronger defensive positions, complete with directional mines, in case the security teams at the breaches are forced to retreat::

Jack Leirone: @::passes over driller no.1 and fires::

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Some of the non-drillers break off the attack and harass the fighters.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: @::cranks up the power:: +squad+ I think we're pissing them off guys

EnsAaron Markus: @+squad+I call this the can opener...

LtJGAxelrod: @::Dodges some fire from the non-drillers.:: That all you got?

WillFMarlowe: +Idrys+ I'm all out of ideas. If you have any I'd--::there is a horrible noise, and then the link goes dead::

Jack Leirone: @::views behind:: +squad+ Markus, you got one on your six!

EnsAaron Markus: @::fires while rolling to create a circle of fire on the target::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Prevents the non-drillers from immediately getting at the fighters by extending the shield radius a bit, thus encompassing the squadron::

LMajAdamDrake: The driller on Deck Four is about to breach!

VAdm Blackthorne: @ ::dives in low, no more than ten meters off the hull, and gives that one another blast with his microtorps::

EnsAaron Markus: @::shoots rear phasers while still rolling::

Jack Leirone: @::passes driller no.2 and fires::

LtDougMcKnight: Helm, take us a little closer to that squadron. I want to tighten these shields back up.

LtJGAxelrod: @::Concentrates all of his firepower on the driller.::

ElRiov trIdrys: +Marlowe+ Doctor? Uh oh ... :::heads off to lab:::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: @::fires phasers on full at the one near deck four:: Lets heat things up shall we?

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The concentrated fighter fire takes out the first Atlantis driller.

Kiley Airell: @::fires at the driller with full power::

LtJGAxelrod: @+Squad+ One driller down.

LMajAdamDrake: No more worries on Deck Four! Deck Nineteen, still overrun with Crystal formations.

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The one on Discovery soon follows.

EnsAaron Markus: @::swoops out and stops spinning::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: @+Squad+ What the pieces in case it starts to reform

LtDougMcKnight: ::Atlantis closes in with the fighter squadron, thus more effectively giving them supporting fire, and allowing the ship to shrink the radius of its shields, thus strengthening them::

Jack Leirone: @+squad+ Let's make some more passes at the drillers. Concentrate fire and we should get it off.

WillFMarlowe: Alvarez> ::lying on his stomach, pounding savagely at a bulkhead as Idrys enters::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: @+Squad+ You DONT wanna get caught in the midst of that..

LtDougMcKnight: ::Support those fighters attacking the drillers on its hull, that is.::

ElRiov trIdrys: Whoa ...

9:05 PM

WillFMarlowe: ::crumpled in a corner::

VAdm Blackthorne: @ +Squadron+ Three on each, don't let the other ships get on you.

Kiley Airell: @::makes another pass, firing phasers again::

weissangelserene: ::watching out for the ones in SB::

EnsAaron Markus: @::reroutes a little extra power from his shields to his phasers::

LtJGAxelrod: @::Exchanges power again.:: +Squad+ Going in for bombing run.

ElRiov trIdrys: +Weis+ We got an emergency in here.

LtDougMcKnight: Marines> ::So far manage to keep the invaders at bay with constant phaser fire, and the occasional photon grenade hurled back through the breach::

EnsAaron Markus: @+squad+ Let's see these bastards take this.

LMajAdamDrake: Engineers> ::run up behind the Marines:: You guys need a forcefield?

Jack Leirone: @::goes to pass the remaining driller on the Discovery:: +squad+ You ready, MArkus?

ElRiov trIdrys: +Security+ Idrys to Security, we have an emergency here! Medical lab one fast as you can

WillFMarlowe: ::the leafy vine pattern crawling up one side of his face seems to have expanded around the gash on his head::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: @::fires on the second one with the same prolonged high heat::

weissangelserene: +Idrys+ I'll be there sir

WillFMarlowe: Alvarez> SCREEEE

EnsAaron Markus: @@+squad+ Oh ya!!!

weissangelserene: ::runs into Lab::

ElRiov trIdrys: ::::heads out of lab::: Weis let's head out of here ...

weissangelserene: What?

WillFMarlowe: Alvarez> ::poundpoundpound, his arm crackling as the crystalline is forced to change shape::

LtDougMcKnight: Marine> This isn't really the best work envinment, just now.

Jack Leirone: @+squad+ Let's light the fires and...oh screw it. ::fires immensely at the driller::

EnsAaron Markus: @::follows Jack in::

ElRiov trIdrys: Computer quarantine lab at once, level five force field!

weissangelserene: What's going on?

LtDougMcKnight: O'Grady> ::Sends down 2 marines to sickbay. It's all he can spare::

EnsAaron Markus: @::fires at same driller from behind Jack and slightly low::

LMajAdamDrake: Engineers> Then work faster!

ElRiov trIdrys: +Bridge+ We have more of these ... things breaking out here ...

VAdm Blackthorne: ::makes a attack run on the second Atlantis one, again about ten meters off the hull::

WillFMarlowe: Potter> ::expires::

LtJGAxelrod: @::Swoops in low and gets ready to fire micro's if need be.::

LMajAdamDrake: Logan> ::falls down and starts shaking horribly::

EnsAaron Markus: @::direct hits with his ramped up phasers::

Jack Leirone: @::fires more and more...::

Kiley Airell: @::fires again on another run::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::empties his supply of microtorps::

LtJGAxelrod: @::Fires some phaser shots.::

VAdm Blackthorne: @ ::then pulls up and lets loose with the phasers:::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: @::adds a micro for good measure::

LtDougMcKnight: Marine> That was diplomatic for get lost, Mr. Wizard. If we get routed here, security fforce fields will be brought up to guard our retreat.

weissangelserene: sir, we need to help there people

ElRiov trIdrys: +Bridge+ This ship is being infected from some source. Unknown source.

EnsAaron Markus: @+squad+ Blow up damn you...blow up....

LtJGAxelrod: @::Shoots in two micro

Jack Leirone: @::follows suit and adds micros::

LtJGAxelrod: s and pulls up hard to avoid the impact.::

LMajAdamDrake: Gods help us. +Sickbay+ Drake to Sickbay, we got another one.

ElRiov trIdrys: Weis ... that corpse in there ... came to life. And Doctor Marlowe seems to be infected too.

EnsAaron Markus: @::fires micros while still holding trigger on phasers::

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The remaining non-drillers make a concentrated effort to attack the fighters.

weissangelserene: ::mouth drops open::

LtDougMcKnight: +Sickbay+ I don't know if you've noticed, doc, but we have a more immediate problem.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: @+Squad+ We have company

ElRiov trIdrys: This thing is spreading ... it's a plague of sorts.

VAdm Blackthorne: @ +Squad+ Watch yourselves.

LtJGAxelrod: @+Squad+ I'm going after 'em.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Both starships close in on the attacking formation::

weissangelserene: ::brings back memoreis of a cetain book::

Jack Leirone: @+squad+ Markus, bogeys at our 2 and 12!

EnsAaron Markus: @::flies away from driller almost hitting it::

9:10 PM

LtJGAxelrod: @::Loops around and begins firing at non-drillers.::

weissangelserene: Well, we're going to have to do something to help these people out

LtDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ Sir, I suggest you take cover as needed behind the Atlantis. They've gathered up in one place now. We can nail them with volley fire.

VAdm Blackthorne: @ ::keeps up the phaser pressure on the driller::

ElRiov trIdrys: You know something ... I seem to remember something like this. ::heads over to computer::

VAdm Blackthorne: +McKnight+ Will do as soon as the drillers are gone.

EnsAaron Markus: @+squad+Time to split the defense.::swoops right between the two::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: @::reroutes power to give her phaser a boost::

WillFMarlowe: Alvarez> ::poundpoundSMASH through the bulkhead, then crackles and SCREEEs as the forcefield shocks him::

Kiley Airell: @::keeps firing on the dillers::

LtDougMcKnight: +Sickbay+ Sickbay, you have my word that if the costume jewelry doesn't get us, I will be dutifully worried about dying of...whatever it is.

ElRiov trIdrys: Let me see ... didn't the Enterprise D report something like this once?

weissangelserene: ::follows him to comp::

EnsAaron Markus: @::fires side phaser while passing between them::

Jack Leirone: @+squad+ Admiral, the driller remaining on the Discovery seems to have slowed down. We may have injured it.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: @::fires two micros while the others phaser it::

LMajAdamDrake: Lucas> ::starts throwing up::

EnsAaron Markus: @+squad+ Uh oh, better get Maaco...!!!

ElRiov trIdrys: Seems to me their Chief Engineer, La Forge, was infected in a similar manner ...

WillFMarlowe: ::groans and starts to come to::

LMajAdamDrake: This is NOT what I need right now. Deck Nineteen breach is widening.

VAdm Blackthorne: @ +Squad+ Keep up the pressure.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Pounds the alien squadron with quantum and photon torpedo volleys, saving phaser bursts for individual ships::

WillFMarlowe: ::looks at the Alvarez-thing smashing through the walls:: Crewman, stop that . . . this . . . instant . . .

ElRiov trIdrys: Let me see here ...

EnsAaron Markus: @::keeps up the pressure::

VAdm Blackthorne: @ ::goes in for another phaser run::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::runs through database:::

ElRiov trIdrys: ::looks up::: Tarchannean III ... that's it/

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: @::rolls upwards:: +squad+ Thanks of the warning Axe

VAdm Blackthorne: @ ::pulls up and rolls in behind one of the ships on Ellis::

Jack Leirone: @+squad+ One more run oughta do it. Let's take this chance, Markus.

weissangelserene: ::reads over his shoulder::

VAdm Blackthorne: @::distracts it enough with phaser fire that it leaves::

EnsAaron Markus: @:: swoops down toward Discovery:: Alright you maggot...time to go bye bye.

Jack Leirone: @::turns around for one more pass::

weissangelserene: I don't really remember this sir.

VAdm Blackthorne: @ ::or turns its attention to Atlantis instead::

LMajAdamDrake: Mayberry> ::stumbles around and starts to throw up, before breaking into heaving tremors::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: @::nails the other one then spins round and down to get back to the driller::

ElRiov trIdrys: A strange form of DNA infected members of an away team ...

LMajAdamDrake: God Damn it!

VAdm Blackthorne: @ +Squad+ Ellis ,Axelrod, form up and attack the Atlantis driller on my wing.

ElRiov trIdrys: when they returned to the planet they mutated into natiove Taechannean forms themselves.

WillFMarlowe: Alvarez> ::now appears to be a giant blue quartz rock, smashing at the walls::

LtJGAxelrod: @::Goes off for attack run with Blackthorne.::

Jack Leirone: @::swoops over it, firing with every ounce of power his fighter has:: AAARRRGGHHH!!!

EnsAaron Markus: @+squad+ Jack, let's hit this one with full phasers and micros simultaneous...

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: @+squad+ Aye sir.. ::hard turn::

LtJGAxelrod: @::Transfers bulk of power to phasers.::

EnsAaron Markus: @::fires with Jack::

weissangelserene: but these people here are dying

LMajAdamDrake: Two down here, five more in sickbay. These odds are good.

VAdm Blackthorne: @::dives in right over the hull and transfers all power to his phasers::

LtDougMcKnight: ::The Atlantis suddenly, quickly extends its shields until they strike against a crystalline ship, disturbing its heading, and disorienting the crew before the shields are once again retracted::

LtJGAxelrod: @::Comes up fast on Black's left wing.::

Kiley Airell: (( I'm sorry All, I'm starting to fall asleep ))

ElRiov trIdrys: Right, now we have to follow the same procedure as they did ... :::pulls it up:::

WillFMarlowe: Wentinult> ::walks into sickbay, afflicted the same as everyone else::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Pounds the crap out of the ship in question with phaser fire and torpedoes before it can right itself::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: @::joins the party and opens with all power to phasers::

EnsAaron Markus: <<no prob Airell good job>>


VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Both drillers give up the ghost.

VAdm Blackthorne: (( Doesn't matter, this isn't the same thing.  ))

LtDougMcKnight: (It sounds to me like what you people really need is STARS.)

Jack Leirone: @+squad+ All right.

Kiley Airell: (( night all))

WillFMarlowe: (("S.T.A.R.S!"))

LtDougMcKnight: (Night, Kiley.)

VAdm Blackthorne: ((Night Airell!))

VAdm Blackthorne: @+Squad+ Negative, return to base.

Kiley Airell has left this chat.

VAdm Blackthorne: @::makes for the assault bay::

LtJGAxelrod: @::Makes one more quick pass, then RTB's.::

Jack Leirone: @+squad+ Yes sir. ::heads reluctantly to assault bay:: ((sorry, didn't see that!))

VAdm Blackthorne: @ ::shoots into the bay and lands::

EnsAaron Markus: <<np>>

LtDougMcKnight: ::Noting a lull in the action, orders the computers to set up a quarantine field around the bridge::

LtDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ Sir, I've sealed off the bridge. You'll have to use site to site transport.

ElRiov trIdrys: :::doing best to help the latest schmuck:::

weissangelserene: besides Dr Marlowe

VAdm Blackthorne: +McKnight+ Site to site the bridge crew in as soon as we're all in the bay.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::powers down his fighter::

Jack Leirone: ::lands and gets out of fighter after powering down::

ElRiov trIdrys: Yes but that was after he did the autopsy on that patient from Engineering. They all came in from that department is my point.

WillFMarlowe: +Idrys+ ::woozily:: I feel I should tell you that the dead walk in lab one. Trying to sedate it . . . ::THUD--SCREE::

ElRiov trIdrys: So something is going on over ...

EnsAaron Markus: ::comes in fast then stops real sudden like to blow air at everybody::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Has some other NPC do the site to site thing, while he continues to fight the remaining ships::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::opens the canopy and climbs down the ladder::

LtJGAxelrod: ::Hovers slowly outside of the fighter bay doors.::

ElRiov trIdrys: ( afk fas )

9:20 PM

WillFMarlowe: Alvarez> ::hurls Marlowe bodily at the pulverized bulkhead::

EnsAaron Markus: ::climbs out and notices a small scratch on fighter:: Damn!!!

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::powers down and opens the hatch::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Everyone belonging on the bridge is beamed there as they come in::

Jack Leirone: ::hand starts to shake...feels sick:: Oh no.

EnsAaron Markus: ::throws down helmet just before shimmering to the bridge::

Jack Leirone: ::runs to sickbay::

LtJGAxelrod: ::Waits for everyone to land and deboard, guards the entrance until then. Lands and powers down.::

WillFMarlowe: Meirill> This way . . . ::helps Wentinult onto a biobed, where he loses consciousness::

LtDougMcKnight: Marines> ::Back away from the breached areas. With the drillers gone, they're facing nothing but vacuum, and emergency forcefields are handling that::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::puts helmet on consoul at sci::

weissangelserene: :;turns at a voice:: yes, can i heolp you?

ElRiov trIdrys: ::looks over:: Yes is there anything we can do for you?

LtDougMcKnight: We've taken some damage. Consoles blowing up left and right, it was a whole thing.

WillFMarlowe: P'tel> ::shivering, looks at Lab One:: What's going on in there?

LtDougMcKnight: But we still seem to have control of this fight, for now. Nice shooting out there, sir.

VAdm Blackthorne: How many are left?

ElRiov trIdrys: ::turns to P'Tel:: Don't worry ::lies through his teeth::

LtDougMcKnight: (Uh...4 good?)

Jack Leirone: I think...I think I caught the, uh...thing Dr...::eyes close and falls to the ground shaking::

weissangelserene: ::to Idrys:: want me to go look sir?

ElRiov trIdrys: ::nods:: yes

LtDougMcKnight: Oh, and I sealed off the bridge because we seem to have some sort of contagion on our hands. I haven;t had time to get the details.

weissangelserene: ::heads to lab and walks in slowly::

VAdm Blackthorne: (sure.)

ElRiov trIdrys: ::turns to P'Tel:: Here ... ::puts extra blanket over him:: Any better?

EnsAaron Markus: ::checks all helm controls and engine status::


LtDougMcKnight: 4 bogies left sir, in various states of repair.

VAdm Blackthorne: How many of the buggers got in through that breach?

weissangelserene: ::looks around:: what the hell is going on?

ElRiov trIdrys: ( Careful Weis ... ever watched Psycho and seen what happens at the Bates motel?  )

WillFMarlowe: Alvarez> ::ripping up the lab trying to force its way through the bulkhead to join the crystalline boarding party::

Jack Leirone: Uh..

LtDougMcKnight: None of them, sir. My boys held them where they found them.

weissangelserene: ((yes but im not in the shower))

LtDougMcKnight: ::Doesn;t bother to hide the grin::

VAdm Blackthorne: Excellent. Keep up the pounding on the four remaining.

9:25 PM

LMajAdamDrake: ::starts coughing::

WillFMarlowe: ((Hey! Leave her out of this . . . :j))

weissangelserene: ((i tend to stay away from men's mothers, i'm not stupid))

ElRiov trIdrys: ( LOL )

WillFMarlowe: ((It was just that one time, Idrys.))

LtDougMcKnight: (Can I have Drake;s stereo once he starts trying to eat brains?)

WillFMarlowe: ((Jesus. Some people just can't let go.))

VAdm Blackthorne: ( Yes. )

LtDougMcKnight: (Sweet.)

ElRiov trIdrys: So P'Tel ... you work in Engineering?

LMajAdamDrake: {{Not if I eat yours. :-p}}

WillFMarlowe: P'Tel> ::shivers:: Did.

LMajAdamDrake: ::coughs and then throws up::

LMajAdamDrake: Oh, shit...

LtDougMcKnight: ::Keeps up the pounding, as ordered::

ElRiov trIdrys: ::nods:: Same as Harrison?

LMajAdamDrake: +Sickbay+ Drake to Sickbay, again. Medical... ::collapses in tremors::

LMajAdamDrake: {{Yes, Doug, I am.}}

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: )

EnsAaron Markus: <<LOL>>

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Discovery and Atlantis move to keep the little ones sandwiched between them, as if doing an elaborate dance in space. But a dance with lots of destruction involved.

LMajAdamDrake: {{Oh, no, he's on to me.}}

WillFMarlowe: Alvarez> ::leaves Marlowe in a corner and goes back to work on the bulkhead::

Jack Leirone: ((anyone gonna help the guy that just walked into sickbay and collapsed?))

ElRiov trIdrys: Computer lock onto Major Drake's signal and beam him directly to sickbay.

LtDougMcKnight: (Those are the best kind.)

ElRiov trIdrys: :::watches Drake shimmer in, helps him to a biobed:::

LMajAdamDrake: ::Throws up again::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::and wipes self off:::

LtJGAxelrod: ((gtg, see you next week))

weissangelserene: +Idrys+ what would happen if i shoot one sir?

ElRiov trIdrys: ( later Axel )

EnsAaron Markus: <<later Axel>>

WillFMarlowe: +Sickbay+ He's throwing me around like a rag doll. Erect a quarantine field--I'm coming out.

ElRiov trIdrys: +Weis+ Ill advised Doctor.

LtJGAxelrod has left this chat.

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Two more of the ships buy the farm.

ElRiov trIdrys: +Marlowe+ Understood. :::does so:::

WillFMarlowe: Alvarez> ::furiously pounding on the bulkhead, is not likely to try to make a break for it::

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The remaining two make a suicide run (or is it?), one for the Atlantis and one for the Discovery.

WillFMarlowe: ::throws a hypospray to distract the thing and dives out of the lab::

ElRiov trIdrys: Major Drake ... you there? I'm Doctor Idrys. We'll try and pull you through this, just stay calm.

WillFMarlowe: Dr. Weis! Isolate any casualties immediately.

weissangelserene: ::was in the lab but leaves with marlowe, helping him to sb::

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Discovery successfully used the same technique, and both ships are destroyed in their attempts to ram.

EnsAaron Markus: ::circles around the crystals to make it hard for them to ram Atlantis::

ElRiov trIdrys: ::continues to monitor Drake:::

WillFMarlowe: Security level eight. Now. Immediately.

VAdm Blackthorne: That's all of them, right?

LtDougMcKnight: O'Grady>::Has security sealed off behind a quarantine field of its own. Marines will be beamed in, so as to make use of the bio filters.::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Nice moves there Mcknight

weissangelserene has left this chat.

LMajAdamDrake: I can barely move but shaking, I'm as calm as I can get, Doctor. ::manages a weak smile::

LtDougMcKnight: Thank'ee kindly, maam.

EnsAaron Markus: Hmmmm.

WillFMarlowe: Nelson, get me a suit.

ElRiov trIdrys: Good. Just keep with us.

WillFMarlowe: Nelson> Yes, doctor.

WillFMarlowe: Dr. Idrys, report. Any more dead?

LMajAdamDrake: I'm not going anywhere...

LtDougMcKnight: O'Grady> ::Orders that all marines observe NBC contaminant protocol. That means masks, mostly.

ElRiov trIdrys: We're managing to keep these people reasonably stable Sir. No additional casualties.

EnsAaron Markus: ::moves the ship out and advises Discovery to do the same::

VAdm Blackthorne: Damage report, McKnight.

WillFMarlowe: Wentinult> ::pukes and dies::

weissangelserene has joined this chat.

ElRiov trIdrys: Oh boy I spoke to soon ...

LtDougMcKnight: Marines> ::Freed up from fighting the crystals, swarm into sickbay in whatever numbers constitute the alert level Marlowe requested.::

Jack Leirone: ::finally manages to get himself in the prone position...a little annoyed no doctors assisted him::

9:35 PM

ElRiov trIdrys: Right. :::goes to Wentinult and begins quarantine procedure::

WillFMarlowe: And will someone see to that man? ::indicates Leirone::

LtDougMcKnight: We've got some damage to our primary and secondary hull. Drilling obviously, as well as the firepower we used to get them off.
