Jack Leirone: I come back from a leave...FOR a leave! Awesome.

LtJGNicoleWeis: well, the past two sims people have died on me

LtJGNicoleWeis: it's sad

LtDougMcKnight: Yeah, a little part of me weeps whenever a nameless NPC dies.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::makes sure to put medical up for shore leave first::

Jack Leirone: ???> ::croaks::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: yo back for good Jack?

Jack Leirone: I believe so, Dakota.

LtJGNicoleWeis: LOL

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::claps:: Congrats Aaron..

LtJGAaron Markus: Thanks everyone.

VAdm Blackthorne: Alright...

LtJGAaron Markus: ::steps back to attention::

The AIM service could not send the message: A message or picture is too large to be transmitted.

VAdm Blackthorne: Tonight, Atlantis is docked at Starbase 22 licking her wounds. Repairs are going on round the clock to get both Atlantis and Discovery spaceworthy again.

VAdm Blackthorne: For the rest of the crew not involved in repairs, a moment of respite - shoreleave.

VAdm Blackthorne: Questions?

Jack Leirone: ::raises hand::

Jack Leirone: What color is the Atlantis's tongue?

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::raises hand:: OHH OHH!!! I know this one!!!

LtJGAaron Markus: ::snickers::

VAdm Blackthorne: Um, Weis?

LtJGNicoleWeis: isn't it pink!!!!

VAdm Blackthorne: No.

LtJGNicoleWeis: darn ::pouts::

VAdm Blackthorne: So, anyway...

VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

Jack Leirone: I mean, it's not an important question.

Jack Leirone: ::is on the Atlantis::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::sitting on the quiet bridge::

Jack Leirone: :;tries to remember what exactly he does on the ship::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::rolls over in bed, trying to convince her self to go back to sleep::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::sitting at Helm/Ops finishing up on the shore leave line::

7:45 PM

Kiley Airell: ::on the bridge::

VAdm Blackthorne: ((Fix it please))

LtJGAaron Markus: Mmmm...let's see...that about does it....

LtJGAaron Markus: Oh wait....

LtDougMcKnight: ::Is on the station, donning a Mark 5 tactical EV suit, preparing to assist in the scouring of one of the still attached crystal drilling ships::

Jack Leirone: ::feels Nicole roll, taking the blankets off of him::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::turns to the Admiral:: Sir, when you like shore leave?...or should I put you down as whenever the hell you feel like it....?

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::snuggles under the covers and curls again, trying to sleep::

Jack Leirone: ::thinks:: Damn it... ::subtly tries to pull the blankets back::

VAdm Blackthorne: The latter. ::smiles::

Jack Leirone: ::isn't successful::

LtJGAaron Markus: Got it.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::makes final entry::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::pulls the covers back over her::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::putting her son in a baby back pack thingie, getting ready to head over to the station::

Jack Leirone: ::guesses she's awake:: Hey. You want me to freeze over here?

LtJGAaron Markus: ::gets up and hands the list to the Admiral:: Here it is...all finished.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::looks over the padd with the final casualty reports once more::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Gathers outside one of the drilling ships with a handful of armed men, all station security. He's sent the majority of his men off on shore leave::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::takes the list and gives it a once over:: This is fine.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::peeks open an eye and rolls over to look at him:: i guess not ::curls up next to him, giving him some covers and body heat::

LtJGAaron Markus: I'll post it right away.

Jack Leirone: I'm not used to this kind of contact with...other people...letalone women...letalone in a bed.

LtDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ McKnight to Atlantis.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::takes the list back and sits back down to post it...::

7:50 PM

LtJGNicoleWeis: what kinda contact?

VAdm Blackthorne: +McKnight+ Blackthorne here.

Jack Leirone: Physical. ::smiles, nervously puts arm around her shoulders::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (Told ya not to drink the pink bottle there, Nikki.. LOL)

LtDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ Just calling to let you know sir, I'm preparing to lead a team to check out one of the drilling ships, if there are no objections.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::snuggles in closer:: there is nothing wrong with physical, and i find it hard to believe that you weren't getting girls left and right in the academy

Jack Leirone: Believe it.

VAdm Blackthorne: +McKnight+ Excellent. We can learn a lot from it.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ((the pink bottle?? I thought you had told me not to drink the green bottle, ohh man ::slaps forehead:)

Jack Leirone: I was older than everyone at the academy.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::walks to the air lock and then over to the station:: We have to find a place to get you some clothes, Noah. You grow out of them faster then I can replacte them

LtDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ Hopefully, the station engineers will concur. I'll see if I can't find a souvenier for your ready room. Preferably, one that doesn't shoot at you.

LtJGNicoleWeis: hmm, your not that old

VAdm Blackthorne: +McKnight+ Yes, things that shoot at me generally aren't welcome in there.

Kiley Airell: ::chuckles::

LtDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ I'll keep it in mind. McKnight out.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (::puts the fish with the phaser back in the bag:: Well there went that Happy Admiral's Day gift idea)

Kiley Airell: ((There's a "Happy Admiral's day"?))

VAdm Blackthorne: ::chuckles and looks back at the sitrep padd::

Jack Leirone: I'm older than you by seven years.

LtDougMcKnight: (Fish with phasers? I want friggin sharks with friggin laser beams on their heads!)

LtJGNicoleWeis: pshh, seven years means nothing, my dad is older then my mom by ten years

LtJGAaron Markus: ::finishes posting...:: Shore Leave List> First Shift=Medical, Second=Security, Third=Science, Fourth=Engineering, Fifth=Repair, Other...Amiral=whenever the hell he feels like it...

7:55 PM

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (HA! I got y'all beat there.. Cy's 38 years older then Sara on Banshee ::is on drugs and in an odd mood:: )

Jack Leirone: Well to certain people, it's nothing. Usually, people don't go for people three years or more from their own. It's a proven fact.

LtJGAaron Markus: The list is posted sir. Would you like to announce it?

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::nods:: well those people are superficial, i dont' care about age

LtDougMcKnight: ::Looks back at the 2 engineers:: Alright folks, I generally take it as a good sign that nothing come out of these ships to attack us yet, but then I don't know jack about these things, so stay behind us until we give the all clear

VAdm Blackthorne: I'm sure people are already anxiously reading it.

Jack Leirone: I'm glad, I guess.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::shrugs:: Ok.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::leans away to look at his face:: you guess? does the age thing between us bother you?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::finds a baby gap::

Jack Leirone: No. "I guess" is just what I say.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ohh okay

VAdm Blackthorne: Too many on this list.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::lays back down next to him::

Kiley Airell: too many Admiral?

Jack Leirone: I'm sorry that I'm not as romantic as the next guy.

LtJGAaron Markus: Which list would that be, sir?

VAdm Blackthorne: The list of the casualties.

LtJGNicoleWeis: it's okay

LtJGAaron Markus: Oh...yeah...

Kiley Airell: ::nods:: Even one is too many.

Jack Leirone: Although...::leans over and pulls out a bag out of a drawer::...I do know of one thing, if it's the only romantic thing I know.

LtJGAaron Markus: I'm just glad we're here to read one.

LtJGNicoleWeis: hmm, whats that?

Jack Leirone: ::reaches into the bag and pulls out three hazelnuts::

VAdm Blackthorne: One would be easier to digest.

Jack Leirone: You know what these are, right?

Kiley Airell: Yeah, I suppose. Though try telling that to the victim's family.

LtJGNicoleWeis: yeah, their hazelnuts

8:00 PM

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::has a confused look on her face::

VAdm Blackthorne: Indeed.

LtDougMcKnight: +C&C+ Command and control, team is preparing to board the crystalline craft. Please activate security force field level 5, section C gamma, and deactivate C beta.

Jack Leirone: It's an ancient form of giving and receiving love. Here's what you do. ::hands her two of the hazelnuts::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::takes them and holds them in her hands::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (Damn now I want coffee with hazelnut coffee mate.. lol)

Kiley Airell: (LOL)

LtJGNicoleWeis: (lol)

LtJGAaron Markus: Well, we know they're manuevering capabilities if there is a next time...hopefully that list will be much smaller...

LtDougMcKnight: ::Watches as a force field flickers into life behind the team, just before the force field sealing off the ship deactivates, releasing the ship's atmoshpere into the exposed section of the station::

Jack Leirone: You give me one of those hazelnuts and then I'll put it in my mouth and kiss you. During the kiss, I'll put the hazelnut in your mouth and you eat it.

LtJGAaron Markus: And the tactical system we worked out will take there of that.

Jack Leirone: There was one girl before you whom I kissed...and this is what she taught me.

Kiley Airell: do you plan on taking shore leave Admiral?

LtJGNicoleWeis: hmm, an interesting idea for a kiss

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::has her bags sent to the ship and heads off to find somewhere to eat and sit cause Noah's gettting really heavy::

VAdm Blackthorne: I haven't decided.

LtDougMcKnight: (Ewww.)

Jack Leirone: Would you like to try?

LtDougMcKnight: Alright folks, let's get moving.

LtJGNicoleWeis: sure, i'm up for just about anything ::hands him a hazelnut::

Jack Leirone: ::puts the hazelnut in his mouth, kisses Nicole, giving the nut back to her::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Steps past the threshold, onto the alien ship, vaguely mindful that he's the first human aboard such a ship:: Well, I'm sure that's worth mention in some history book. Footnote to a footnote maybe.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::takes the nut into her mouth::

8:05 PM

VAdm Blackthorne: ::stands and walks to the forward viewer, which is off, with his hands clasped behind his back::

Jack Leirone: ::waits for her response::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::looks at the Admiral, wondering what's going through his mind::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Looks about the ship, and suddenly feels glad for the air conditioning system in his suit:: Christ, it actually LOOKS hot in here. Engineers, any danger to suit integrity?

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::eats the hazelnut::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::opens her eyes:: hmm, very interesting

VAdm Blackthorne: ((Reading what you two are typing is hilarious when taken out of context))

Jack Leirone: That's pretty much the only romantic thing I know.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (I hope it was shelled)

LtJGNicoleWeis: ((;;blushes:)

Kiley Airell: :;watches the Admiral:: You know it's a shame that we couldn't communicate with them.

LtDougMcKnight: Engineer> ::Consults a tricorder built into the forearm of his suit:: I shouldn't think so, sir. These are tactical suits, built to stand up to shrapnel and low energy phaser fire. They should be up to some heat.

Jack Leirone: (This hazelnut deal is a real thing! I've done it.)

Kiley Airell: It could have saved a lot of lives

VAdm Blackthorne: We communicated fairly well, at the end.

LtJGAaron Markus: We did...They just didn't want to listen.

LtJGNicoleWeis: well, i'm sure you'll pick up more romantic things as we go along

LtJGNicoleWeis: but no worries about being romantic

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::notices a man looking at them, gets the creeps and heads back towards the air lock::

Jack Leirone: What's the most romantic thing you know?

LtDougMcKnight: Alright then, let's start the clearing.

VAdm Blackthorne: I wonder what they meant by all of that.

LtJGNicoleWeis: hmm, a boyfriend i had back at the academy took me to the beach, where we camped out alone together for a weekend

8:10 PM

LtDougMcKnight: ::McKnight plus the security men move from section to section like a swat team, covering each other as they move about the ship::

LtJGNicoleWeis: it might not sound too romantic, but he surprised me with the weekend and we just had an amazing time

Jack Leirone: What did you do? Two days on a beach...seems pretty boring.

LtJGAaron Markus: I didn't even catch all the message...something about honor or something.

VAdm Blackthorne: It's too late for peace, they said.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::remembers:: Oh yeah....

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::smiles shyly:: it was a very nice weekend

Jack Leirone: That doesn't answer my question. What did you do?

LtJGAaron Markus: Well maybe someone on their side will see it differently.

VAdm Blackthorne: But that crystal seemed to want peace.

LtJGNicoleWeis: well, it was during a warm weekend so we layed out in the sand and went swimming during the day and

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::gets back onto the ship and takes Noah back to their quarters::

LtJGNicoleWeis: at night we cuddled by the camp fire and looked at the stars or he would play his guitar and sing for me, and of course, we did other things too ::blushes::

Jack Leirone: And what?

LtJGAaron Markus: That last one?

VAdm Blackthorne: Of course, it was about to die, perhaps thinking that it would regenerate like usual.

LtJGAaron Markus: That's an odd way of thinking...

8:15 PM

LtJGAaron Markus: Killing yourself just to regenerate.....

Kiley Airell has left this chat.

Kiley Airell has joined this chat.

Kiley Airell: (test)

VAdm Blackthorne: They likely didn't know that we can stop their regeneration.

LtJGAaron Markus: ((WB Kiley))

VAdm Blackthorne: (pass)

LtJGNicoleWeis: and...well you know, we just had a wonderful time

Kiley Airell: (bout time)

Jack Leirone: What do you mean by other things?

Jack Leirone: I must be missing something here.

Kiley Airell: I am not so sure of that Admiral. I mean the other crystals didn't regenerate. Maybe there wasn't enough time.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::blushes even redder and looks at the bed:: we made love jack, on the beach

VAdm Blackthorne: Perhaps it was aware of its fate then.

Jack Leirone: Oh. OH. OH Okay I get it. ::gets uncomfortable::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Enters what looks to him like a bridge area, and instinctively brings his rifle up with both hands as he notices a sudden nearby glint in his peripheral vision, just in time to stop a jagged shard of crystal being brought down

LtDougMcKnight: at his head:

LtJGNicoleWeis: yeah....::silence ensues::

Jack Leirone: So you've...::gulp::...done that before, then?

LtJGAaron Markus: More than likely...after what we had done to the others.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::leaves Noah with the nanny and heads out, her mind fixed on the man she saw. Did he have a holocam?::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Looks with his direct vision now at a solitary crystalline figure, still trying to force the crude weapon down at his chest::

LtJGNicoleWeis: yeah, i thought was i going to marry him at the time

Jack Leirone: Why didn't you?

8:20 PM

Kiley Airell: I think it did know.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::sighs:: turns out i wasn't what he wanted in a wife, i didn't fit into his plans

LtDougMcKnight: ::Shoves the rifle forward into the figure's face, knocking it back a bit before shifting the rifle to deliver a butt stroke to what he's basically come to think of as the crystal man's head as his companions come rushing::

VAdm Blackthorne: Anyway, we'll see how this plays out. Whether or not they're willing to keep fighting a losing battle

LtDougMcKnight: Hold your fire! Hold your fire!

LtJGAaron Markus: We may not even see them ever again...

Jack Leirone: Why was he making love to you if he didn't want you as a wife? That doesn't make sense.

LtJGAaron Markus: Their leaders may decide to stay away...and not even bother...

LtDougMcKnight: ::Keeps his rifle aimed, nontheless, and activates his suit's external microphone:: Can you hear me? If you're willing to stop trying to gut me, we mean you no harm.

VAdm Blackthorne: Given what the last one said, I think we will.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::shrugs:: i don't know, but it's all in the past now, no need to dwell on it

LtJGAaron Markus: Hopefully we can tweak our communications by then and talk to them, without any conflict.

LtJGNicoleWeis: haven't you ever made love before Jack?

VAdm Blackthorne: Our communications worked well enough at the end of that battle.

LtJGAaron Markus: Not entirely...There was still a lot of garble.

Kiley Airell: I hope that they don't come back . . . it's a losing battle for them, but gives high casualties to us.

Jack Leirone: ::trying to avoid the question:: What?

8:25 PM

LtJGAaron Markus: We can't be entirely sure of what they were trying to say...

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::takes his hand and tries to look in his eyes:: haven't you ever made love to a woman before?

VAdm Blackthorne: Militarily, that was a massacre. They lost ten ships, we lost two.

VAdm Blackthorne: They have to realize that.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (Wait wait wait...All that and NOTHING happened?)

Jack Leirone: ::stutters:: No I haven't.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::leans over and kisses his cheek:: i find that extremely attractive

LtJGAaron Markus: Sir, if you don't need me for a while, I'm gonna go cook something...

LtDougMcKnight: ::Gets no response, but the creature doesn't advance, if perhaps only for the fear of the many guns pointed in its direction:

VAdm Blackthorne: I'll be on the starbase for a while. Counselor, you have the bridge.

LtDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ McKnight to Atlantis.

VAdm Blackthorne: +McKnight+ Blackthorne here.

Jack Leirone: Attractive? What that I don't know what I'm doing?

Kiley Airell: Aye Admiral. Enjoy the break

Kiley Airell: ((Not again!))

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::walks into the lab and starts cleaning up, looks down at the run that coves the hole she made:: Good no one's notcied yet

LtJGAaron Markus: ::looks to the Counselor:: If you don't need me, I'm gonna fix me something to eat.....

LtDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ Sir, we have boarded the enemy craft, and discovered a crystalline...whatever the hell we're calling these things. Request instructions.

LtDougMcKnight: (Oh, McKnight's noticed it.)

VAdm Blackthorne: +McKnight+ Capture it if possible, and if not possible, destroy it.

LtDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ Acknowledged, sir.

LtJGNicoleWeis: well, no, the reason it's attractive is because it means you have never settled for just any one, that your still a virgin is an amazing thing

Kiley Airell: ((the not a gain was that I'm lagging again))

LtDougMcKnight: +Blackthrone+ McKnight out.

8:30 PM

LtJGAaron Markus: ((that's always fun))

VAdm Blackthorne: ::enters the TL::

Jack Leirone: It's not that I haven't's that I have never had the opportunity. I've only kissed one girl besides you. And that was over ten years ago.

VAdm Blackthorne: Deck ten.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Switches back to the suit's internal sound system which he's using to communicate with the team:: Alright men, set your phasers to maximum stun, and hit it with all you've got.

LtJGNicoleWeis: haven't you tried asking other girls out?

LtDougMcKnight: Reports from my marines say a barrage of phaser blasts on maximum stun brought down infected crew members. Let's just hope it works on the factory model.

Jack Leirone: No.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::exits the TL and crosses the docking bridge to the starbase::

LtJGNicoleWeis: because of the age thing again?

LtJGAaron Markus: ::gets in a TL and goes to his quarters::

Kiley Airell: You plan on going over to the starbase when your shift is over Markus?

LtJGAaron Markus: ((Scratch my last))

LtJGAaron Markus: Ummm, I'm not sure...

Kiley Airell: ((sorry . . . I'm like really lagging))

LtJGAaron Markus: ((No prob))

VAdm Blackthorne: ::finds the quietest bar on the Promenade deck that he can and orders a gin and tonic::

Jack Leirone: No, because it's never seemed worthwhile.

LtDougMcKnight: ::The security men adjust the setting on their rifles. Unfortunately, the action is noticed by the crystalline entity, who promptly rushes forward and tackles McKnight, attempting to rip a gash in his suit::

LtJGNicoleWeis: then why did you ask me out?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::decides to head back to the station and see how that man was::

LtJGAaron Markus: Right now, I'm vamished, and that's all I can think about...That and the fact that I'm a little worried about the Admiral.

Jack Leirone: Because you seemed worthwihle. ::leans forward and kisses her deeply::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::takes the g&t, finds a table, and sits to sip at the drink::

Kiley Airell: Why are you worried?

LtDougMcKnight: ::Struggling on the deck of the ship with the attacking crystal:: Hey sailors, little help here?

8:35 PM

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::returns the kiss before pulling away, slightly breathless:: and you said you couldn't be romantic ::giggles and kisses him again::

Jack Leirone: I can't. Why? Was that romantic just now?

LtJGAaron Markus: Well, he just seemed a little too worried about the battle....I know it's been hard, but there seemed to be something deeper to me....I don't know, maybe I'm just seeing something that's not there....

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::nods:: umm hmm, that was extremely romantic

VAdm Blackthorne: ::stares out the open door into the promenade, watching people pass::

LtJGAaron Markus: I myself, would very much like to forget about these creatures and go on....I mean I really don't think we'll seem them for a long time...

Kiley Airell: Well, a lot of people died in that battle. And, it possibly could have been avoided. It's not an easy thing to be incharge of something like that.

LtDougMcKnight: Security men> ::Open fire, but are unable to get a clean line of sight as McKnight and the crystal roll on the deck::

Jack Leirone: Really? Hm. Interesting. ::kisses her again and doesn't stop, lying her down and pulling a blanket over the two of them::

Kiley Airell: You're not the only one. I myself would be very happy not to see those creatures again.

LtJGAaron Markus: I know....There just seems to be more than that though....I think he blames himself for the whole thing...when it couldn't be avoided by him or any of us. It was just a big misunderstanding.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::returns the kisses, running her fingers through his hair::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Is struck repeatedly by phaser blasts, but thankfully, so is the crystal. As both combatants slow down, the security men are able to better focus their fire on the crystal soldier::

Kiley Airell: It was still needless.

LtJGAaron Markus: Things happen and there isn't a lot you can do to stop it. Maybe I should be telling this to him, I don't know...

LtJGAaron Markus: So were a lot of wars we fought...the Klingon war, the Romulan war, the Cardassian war, the Dominion war....

Kiley Airell: You really think he would listen? If things are still bad in a few days I'll talk to him.

8:40 PM

Jack Leirone: ::whispering:: This is the best shore leave I've ever had.

LtDougMcKnight: Security men> ::Continue blasting the living crap out of the crystal soldier until they're satisfied it's stopped moving::

LtJGAaron Markus: Why do we always seem to fight people when we first meet them?

VAdm Blackthorne: ::sips at the drink wordlessly::

LtJGAaron Markus: I'm sure he'd listen...he's a reasonable man...I hope.

LtDougMcKnight: SM> ::Rush over to McKnight, now getting up slowly:: Dear God sir, are you alright?

Kiley Airell: Maybe because we meet the wrong people. We explore the galaxy and don't really know other people's "borders." To them we are invading their territories. With some that's not a good way to meet.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Getting up, slowly:: Yeah, yeah, the suit took most of it. Just gimme a minute.

LtJGAaron Markus: That's true.

LtJGNicoleWeis: hehe, same here, why don't we spend our shore leave together?

Jack Leirone: Heh... I thought that was already in the plans.

LtJGAaron Markus: Well, if you don't mind...::grabs stomache as it growls:: I'd really like to fix myself something to eat...

Kiley Airell: Oh, sure. Don't let me stop you.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::kicks back in the chair::

LtJGAaron Markus: Is there anything I can bring you when I return?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::standing in the foodcourt but doesn't see the man anymore::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::produces a cigar from the inner pocket of his leather flight jacket::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Leaning against a wall, shaking off a sense of dizziness:: Well, I'd say the ship looks clear, wouldn't you?

Kiley Airell: ::sits back in her chair and relaxes::

LtJGAaron Markus: Or does your shift end soon?

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::smiles:: just making sure is all ::kisses him playfully on the nose::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::clips the end and lights it::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Gets no arguments, and so takes a transporter tag from one of the engineers and slaps it onto the unconscious crystal::

8:45 PM

Kiley Airell: It ends soon.

Jack Leirone: ::smiles and is wordless as he leans down and kisses her again, this time not stopping::
