LtJGNicoleWeis: ((brb))

VAdm Blackthorne: ::in a secluded bar on the starbase's promenade, drinking gin and tonic while watching people go by outside::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Sits at a bar on the station, despite not knowing if he's technically up for leave yet. If anyone asks, he'll say he got held up by GETTING SHOT REPEATEDLY. Note the caps. They're important::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::still looking for the guy who looked like he was taking pictures of her and Noah::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::In his quarters 'waking' from deep meditation::

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > :::SNEEZES loudly::: Dabbit adyhow ...

VAdm Blackthorne: ::fishes a cigar out of his leather flight jacket and lights it up with a green butane torch::

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > ::is moreover quite preggos by now::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::notes McKnight and walks over to him:: Have you seen a guy with short blonde hair in a dark jacket and a holocam?

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal >

LtJGAaron Markus: ::gets up and takes a sonic shower::

LtDougMcKnight: Hey, we should all be so lucky.

LtDougMcKnight: Take a seat, tell me what the evil papparazzi has done now.

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > ::as in ... like a humanoid beached whale ... with pointy ears and a crinkly nose:::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::walks into sickbay::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::takes long, slow drags from the cigar::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::shakes her head:: I think he was taking pictures of my son and I

VAdm Blackthorne: ::followed by sips from the gin and tonic::

WillFMarlowe: ::walks into sickbay and drops his only somewhat blood-stained medkit into a bin that folds into the wall::

ElRiov trIdrys: Well, I guess we should be on our way hm?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::sits::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::doesn't notice Will as she hops up on a biobed, still reading the PADD::

WillFMarlowe: ::looks up:: Hello, Lieutenant. I'm told you did a remarkable job in here.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Takes a slow swig from his Guiness:: Well, that's the Merriam Webster definition of creepy.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::surprised to hear will:: ohh gosh sir, you scared me ::blushes at the compliment:: i guess, we lost a few people still

Kiley Airell: ::downloads some of the infromation into a PADD and moves over to her bed to read more comfortably::

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > :::AAAAAAAAAAAAACHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!::: Yeah why dod't you go od ad edjoy yersef. I'b dot feedig so good Hakkie.

LtDougMcKnight: And why would someone want pictures of a junior officer and her kid?

LtJGAaron Markus: ::finishes sonic shower, gets dressed and sits at his desk to write up a report on the fight::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::looks sad at the thought of lost lives::

ElRiov trIdrys: ::blinks as she SNEEEEEEEEEEEEZE!!!!!!s yet another time:: Well dear let's get you over to Sickbay. I want to have a look at you ... :::wonders if this could be The Big Day:::

Amythyst Grey has joined this chat.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Because Ethen's parnets know about him

WillFMarlowe: ::nods:: It happens sometimes. All too often, there is nothing to be done about it. ::walks over to a sonic wash basin and cleans the blood from his hands::

ElRiov trIdrys: (( hey Gem ))

7:50 PM

VAdm Blackthorne: >>Hi, Gem!<<

Amythyst Grey: >Hiya!<

LtDougMcKnight: (Gem, howdy!)

Kiley Airell: ((Hiya Gem))

LtJGAaron Markus: ::puts down the report about halfway through it and decides to take a walk::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::is curious about the blood but doesn't ask:: what are you doing here anyways sir? we're on shoreleave or didn't you hear?

LtJGAaron Markus: ((hello Gem))

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: and not only do that know about him they want him..

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > :::::::AAAAAAAAAAAAAACHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!::: Wedd if you say so Hakkie. I just woder if this pregdacy is godda ed at all.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (GEM!)'

WillFMarlowe: No. I've spent the last several hours in the bowels of the ship seeing to patients who couldn't be moved.

Kiley Airell: ::highlights certain parts of the information::

LtDougMcKnight: Ethan? We are talking Cervantes Ethan here, right?

ElRiov trIdrys: :::heads to SB with her::::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::nods::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods approvingly as a three piece band starts playing old terran jazz::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::puts on walking shoes and heads out the door and down the hall to the TL::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ohh, i didn't know there were patients down there, ohh gosh, well what are you doing here, lets go down and help them ::hops off the biobed::

WillFMarlowe: Sorry I had to leave in such a rush.

WillFMarlowe: No, no, it's all right. The last of them have been transfered to the starbase medical center.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ohhh ::hops back up onto the biobed::

LtDougMcKnight: And you and Learties never made arrangements? As I recall, that Kitsune Syndrome thing did sorta sneak up on him.

ElRiov trIdrys: :::enters SB with T'Nal::: All right now let's get you checked out ... how about getting on that biobed here. ::indicates one::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: He signed away all his rights but his parents have decided that that doesn't inculed theirs

WillFMarlowe: What about you? Aren't you going to get out of here for a while?

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > :::gives him a withering look::: Like I cad climb boutaids ... sheesh I deed help here.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::steps inside TL:: Deck 8

LtDougMcKnight: ::Takes another long drink:: Well then, I guess there's one question that really needs answering.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::shrugs:: i don't really know anyone yet, most of the people i've met are still dealing with the effects of everything and don't want to see me right now

ElRiov trIdrys: :::helps her onto the biobed, wondering how much his patience is going to be tested by his testy ... patient :::

ElRiov trIdrys: (  )

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::looks at him oddly:: and what would that be?

VAdm Blackthorne: ::finishes the drink, walks over to the band's tip jar and places one of his cigars in it::

LtDougMcKnight: Do his folks have themselves a time machine?

LtDougMcKnight: (Wow, key their shuttle while you're at it!)

ElRiov trIdrys: :::begins monitoring vitals and looks over medical tricorder:::

7:55 PM

VAdm Blackthorne: ::Then puts his aviator frame sunglasses on and walks out into the promenade, still slowly smoking his cigar:

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > WEDD? You god adythig there?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: They have something more powerful. power, postion, and money

LtJGAaron Markus: ::steps off the turbo lift and proceeds a short way before coming to an abrupt halt and turning to ring Kiley's chime::

Kiley Airell: ::finishes the readings, takes the sections that are highlighted and puts them in another file::

Kiley Airell: ::hears the chime:: Come in

LtJGAaron Markus: ::steps in:: I'm not intruding am I?

LtJGNicoleWeis: why don't you go though and enjoy your shore leave, i can hold down sick bay for you ::smiles::

WillFMarlowe: Care to join me? I was going to see what I can do here, but there is no immediate need for this place when we're docked at a starbase.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::walks around, observing people and enjoying the cigar::

ElRiov trIdrys: One moment. :::goes over to replicator and orders some herbal tea as per Ellis's recommendation:::

LtDougMcKnight: And you have the signature of the deceased, something Learties chose not to seek permission on before going ahead with it.

Kiley Airell: ::sits up on the bed and smiles:: Not at all. I was just finishing reading up on some things.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::nods and smiles:: yeah, i'd like that, it'll be better then sitting here all day, no offense to sick bay of course

ElRiov trIdrys: :::brings it back, holds mug out::: Here this out to clear up your ...

Amythyst Grey has left this chat.

ElRiov trIdrys: T

LtDougMcKnight: And seeing as how he was a big boy, I'd say that was his call. A judge isn't going to ignore a legally binding document.

LtJGAaron Markus: Great...I was wondering if you were getting sick of being couped up in here and would like to join me for a walk?

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > :::SMACKs him and sends the mug flying, splattering tea on his uniform:::

LtDougMcKnight: But hey, where are my manners?

LtDougMcKnight: ::Gestures to his glass:: Want one? Or maybe something a bit stronger in your case.

Kiley Airell: ::smiles:: I'd love to take a walk

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::nods:: I know that in my head.. Doesnt mean the threat doesn;t still scare me.. I even thought of sending Noah to live with my.... ::shudders:: mother!

LtJGNicoleWeis: where are you headed sir?

ElRiov trIdrys: What the hell was THAT for? I was trying to give you some tea to clear your sneezing and all.

WillFMarlowe: I understand. If I have to take one more breath of air from this damaged recycler system, I'll space myself.

LtDougMcKnight: Your fundamentalist Bajoran mother?

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::laughs and hops off biobed to stand next to him::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::smiles:: Great 'cause we happen to be up in the rotation...

WillFMarlowe: ::stops on his way to the door:: I haven't the faintest idea. Whatever catches my attention, I suppose.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (You know your scaring me with all the stuff you rememeber from Vantes.. LOL)

VAdm Blackthorne: ::takes a seat on a bench overlooking a lower floor and puffs slowly::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::nods again:: That would be her

LtDougMcKnight: (I have a head for useless trivia.)

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::smiles and nods:: sounds great to me, i used to do that when i lived at home

Kiley Airell: (you have a Trivial mind then?)

WillFMarlowe: ::walks with her down the corridor headed for the turbolift:: Are you hungry?

LtDougMcKnight: (Hell, I knew the name of Francis Drake's ship.)

WillFMarlowe: ((Bravo, Kiley.))

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > Yeah thad's add I deed. Tea. :::HUMPHs::: I'b id paid here ad you brig be TEA!!!!! :::tries to SMACK him again::::

LtJGAaron Markus: Shall we have a quick looksee around the station? ::Offers his arm to escort her.::

LtJGNicoleWeis: actually, yeah i am, i forgot about food

ElRiov trIdrys: :::ducks in time:::

8:00 PM

LtDougMcKnight: Well, let's look at it logically. You have Learties' last will and testament, so your legal claim to this child is solid. What else do they have to throw at you?

WillFMarlowe: ::steps into the lift after her:: Deck ten.

Kiley Airell: Sure. ::takes the arm, smiling, remembering to bring the PADD::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::twiddles her thumbs, trying to think of something to say::

WillFMarlowe: I haven't eaten either since . . . since I don't remember when.

LtDougMcKnight: And of course, tell anyone I resorted to logic first, and I shoot you.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::waves for a waitress to bring two more of what McKnight has and then points towards where the ship is:: How about attacking enagement rings and mother's day ear rings

LtJGAaron Markus: ::Escorts Kiley out to the docking port:: So what's that? ::points at the padd::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::laughs lightly:: i think i ate last night but i'm not sure

VAdm Blackthorne: ::Creating a nice cloud of smoke::

amythystcrystals has joined this chat.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ((AHHH!!! not more crystals))

LtDougMcKnight: on the front lines you mean.

LtJGAaron Markus: Environmental Systems on the station> ::sucks up the Admiral's smoke::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ((srry, i just had to))

Kiley Airell: Oh, this? ::indicating the PADD:: Just has the invormation I told you I was going to look up. On telepathy.

Kiley Airell: ((LOL))

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ( ::blinks:: Crystals? They have a screen name now?)

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> A subspace communique, marked urgent, arrives from Newer Jersey colony to Atlantis.

LtJGAaron Markus: Oh...Find anything useful?

Kiley Airell: (Aparently Ellis, maybe we can finally communicate with them properly  )

WillFMarlowe: ::off the lift, up the corridor, down the gangway and onto the station, etc., etc.:: Let's see . . . Chinese? Martian? Betazoid?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::nods and chugs have the guinness::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ummm, ::thinks hard for a moment while stomach growls:: ummm, why don't you choose, i've only ever had chinese before

Kiley Airell: Yeah, I found quite a bit of information that I think can help.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (as long as they don't add in any more weird sounds.. lol)

LtDougMcKnight: ::Pulls over a bowl full of pretzels and grabs a few out of the bowl:: Hey hey, one does not CHUG Guiness.

Kiley Airell: ((What's the fun if they don't?))

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The new of the communique is automatically forwarded to Blackthorne's commbadge, which beeps impatiently from his pocket.

8:05 PM

LtDougMcKnight: That's the pride of Dublin you've got there, not a Bud Ice.

WillFMarlowe: I think I'd like something spicy. Martian. ::looks at her:: Do you approve?

AmythystCrystals: >::smiles:: Weird sounds?<

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::puts the glass down and licks the foam from her lip::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::nods:: sounds good to me

LtJGAaron Markus: Cool. I just happened to finish up a round of meditation...

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (yeah... SCEEEEE.. is a weird sound.. lol)

VAdm Blackthorne: ::takes out the commbadge and acknowledges it, then heads back to the docking level::

LtJGAaron Markus: It's doing it's far.

Kiley Airell: Good to hear.

LtJGAaron Markus: Of course the early stages isn't so bad.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::crosses the docking bridge into the Atlantis's saucer, and pauses to have a look out the windows at her hull damage::

LtDougMcKnight: Anyway...I'm the first to agree that starship life has its risks. I am security, after all. But there's something to be said for precedent.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::Sees that it's mostly done, nods in approval::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Ya know if they'd just asked I wouldn't have denided them a role in his life but to just up and threaten me the way they did..

Kiley Airell: How often do you find yourself having to meditate?

LtDougMcKnight: There have been families on starships for nearly a century.

WillFMarlowe: ::leads her into a restaurant and pulls out a chair, motioning for her to sit::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::disposes of the remains of the cigar in a waste receptacle and heads aboard::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::nods:: That's why I picked Atlantis

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::blushes lightly:: thank you sir ::sits down::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::enters the TL:: Bridge.

LtJGAaron Markus: Well, about every couple of hours actually...

LtDougMcKnight: Oh, no question. The folks are bums. Up their ass with broken glass.

LtJGAaron Markus: But that's without any drug intervention too.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::nearly laughs::

Kiley Airell: ::stops and looks at him:: Really? You can't even go a day?

VAdm Blackthorne: ::arrives on the quiet bridge, hands in jacket pockets, and removes his sunglasses as he enters the RR::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::shakes his head::

LtDougMcKnight: Look, you know I'll be happy to vouch for your competence...or whatever the legalese for it is.

LtJGAaron Markus: It's been worse...

WillFMarlowe: ::chuckles a little:: Thank my mother. ::sits down:: "So this is the future, eh? Warp speed, transporters, phasers, and not one thought for manners."

LtJGAaron Markus: I've gone this long before.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::hangs the jacket up and sits down behind his desk, then answers the comm:: Ian Blackthorne here.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::laughs::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Thanks McKnight ::smiles a bit and sips the drink this time::

WillFMarlowe: Waitress> ::ambles over:: Can I get you anything?

LtJGNicoleWeis: well, i must say, it's nice to meet men with manners

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::smiles at the waitress and waits for will to order::

LtDougMcKnight: That's the stuff. I'll make a respectable drunk out of you yet.

Kiley Airell: What drug intervention?

LtDougMcKnight: ::Passes her the pretzels::

8:10 PM

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::laughs:: Is now when I slip in the not very pc joke about that being easy given who my father is?

WillFMarlowe: House salad, I think. ::looks at Nicole, as does the waitress after taking down his order::

LtJGAaron Markus: I've heard there were certain drugs that could help stifle the need a little...::confused look:: Aren't there?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::takes a pretzel and wishs there were some hot fudge around::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::sits feeling stupid, not knowing what to order:: ahhh, ummm, yeah, i guess i'll have the same ::blushes feriously::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::gives T'Nal a sedative & confers w/a nurse:::

LtDougMcKnight: Oh hey, good one. Next step is a slur about the French.

WillFMarlowe: You say you've never had Martian before?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (You gave a pregnant woman a sedative?)

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::nods:: we don't go out to eat at home

Kiley Airell: Yeah, there are. It's been so long since I've had to read up on that information. If you give me some time I could probably find it for you.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: bring out the frogs legs and I will

LtDougMcKnight: I mean, I won't say none of them can fight, but there's a reason you don't see the Frogs in charge of security.

WillFMarlowe: ::nods:: I think you'll like it.

LtJGNicoleWeis: i'm sure i will, i like most things i've tried

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (No you just make them marines )

LtJGAaron Markus: Actually, I'm hoping I won't need them. I'd like to try and ride this out, if our leave isn't called short anyways.

ElRiov trIdrys: (this is the 24th century, this one is approved for pregnant women)

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (lol.)

LtJGAaron Markus: I mean, the fact that I'm 3/4 human should help...I hope.

WillFMarlowe: ::another waiter floats over to the table and leaves them each a glass of a kind of chilled tea before speeding away::

Kiley Airell: I'm sure it does.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::looks around, taking in the sights::

LtJGNicoleWeis: this is a cool looking joint

LtJGAaron Markus: But if I do need anything, you'll be the first to know. And hopefully the only one.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::loves the subspace delay::

AmythystCrystals: +T+ Admiral, thank you for your time. I... know you don't know who I am, but I am asking you for your help.

Kiley Airell: Well, it's a good thing that I'm a medical doctor as well as a counselor, isn't it? ::grins::

WillFMarlowe: ::takes a drink and sighs a relaxed sort of sigh, enjoying the flavor and coolness of the tea:: I think so.

8:15 PM

LtDougMcKnight: So, should I talk to station security about this photographer? There are ordnances against harassment you know.

ElRiov trIdrys has left this chat.

LtJGAaron Markus: Yes.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: No you put the Irish in Sec, seeing as how they've been concered and occupied more then Bajor, ::winks::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::tries the tea and likes it alot:: ohh my, this stuff is good ::blushes at saying "ohh my"::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::blinks as he sees the gorgeous woman on the screen:: My help? What with? And may I ask why are you on Newer Jersey when that colony has been evacuated?

LtJGAaron Markus: So why did you go into counseling? You said the other night that you miss doing medical...

Kiley Airell: (::looks around for the lions, tigers, and bears:

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::shakes her head:: I don't think we'll be here much longer and I doubt he'll come onto the ship

WillFMarlowe: ::smiles a little as she turns an ever-deeper shade of red:: Are you quite all right?

AmythystCrystals: +T+ ::smiles sunnily:: I am... how would you call it... a refugee... of the Apocalypse that happened here.

Kiley Airell: I do miss it. ::hesitates:: I just needed a change.

LtDougMcKnight: Fair enough. And FYI, my ancestors were Highlanders, missy. Both Catholic, both Celts, but there's a difference.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::blushes again:: ohh umm, yeah i think i am, i just feel like i'm making a fool out of myself is all ::tries to laugh at herself::

LtJGAaron Markus: Did it get a little too monatonous?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Indeed

Kiley Airell: No . . .

LtDougMcKnight: Which will come to me.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::narrows his eyebrows but finds himself already wanting to believe her:: A refugee? We evacuated everyone from the planet's surface, except for the remains of the crystalline troops.

WillFMarlowe: Lieutenant, relax. ::sits back as their waitress sets their plates in front of them:: You're not making a fool out of yourself.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (We forgot someone? It's Drake's fault!)

LtJGAaron Markus: ::wonders if he's going too far asking her things too private::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::nods and smiles:: thank you sir

Kiley Airell: ((LOL))

LtJGAaron Markus: ((LOL))

Kiley Airell: ::changing the subject:: have you ever been to this SB before?

LtJGAaron Markus: ((blame the one who's not here))

WillFMarlowe: I'm not sure I ever got around to congratulating you, by the way.

AmythystCrystals: +T+ Well... this is hard to explain, Admiral. ::smiles warmly at him:: But I'll try my best.

VAdm Blackthorne: Please. ::returns the smile:: You have my attention.

LtJGNicoleWeis: congratulating me for what?

WillFMarlowe: ::harpoons a few of the red-spackled greens along with some bits of seasoned meat:: Your promotion.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Sighs contentedly as he reaches the halfway mark on his second glass:: Been awhile since I had one of these off the tap. Replicators just aren't the same.

8:20 PM

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::fingers her pips:: ohh, thank you sir

AmythystCrystals: +T+ You see... the crystalline warriors weren't completely killed off...

VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods:: We're aware of their regenerative properties.

LtDougMcKnight: It's like a hot dog. It's perfectly edible whatever way you make it, but it takes a grill to make a REAL hot dog.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Oh I know. They're awful at making anything Bajorin

WillFMarlowe: ::chews and pauses for a moment, considering the flavor, then swallows:: Impressive. Nothing like the real thing, of course, but it's quite good. Try it.

AmythystCrystals: +T+ And, as you know, some ... how would you say it... essesnces, I suppose, of dying people tend to linger behind when the life has been ended abruptly.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::looks a little disappointed:: I'm sorry...You don't want to talk about it. ::short pause and looks up:: No. In fact I think we may be a little bit lost...

LtDougMcKnight: Well, this is Star Fleet. I'll bet the computer has orders to only make reduced fat hasparat.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::nods and tries some salad::

LtJGNicoleWeis: mmmm, it is good ::enjoying the tastes eats some more::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::raises an eyebrow::

Kiley Airell: No reason to be sorry Aaron. ::chuckles:: Being Lost isn't all bad ya know.

AmythystCrystals: ::smiles at him, her lovely violet eyes fairly glowing::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: That's what they get for going with the atkins program of replaction

VAdm Blackthorne: ::watches her eyes::

LtJGNicoleWeis: this is exteremly good, thank you so much sir

LtDougMcKnight: Which is why the first thing I did when I moved in was to replicate a George Foreman grill.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::slowly takes Kiley's hand in his:: How about being found?

WillFMarlowe: I'm glad you like it. ::sips his drink and looks out across the promenade::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (Hot dogs on a GFG Rock!)

AmythystCrystals: +T+ Admiral... the clearest way that I can explain my presence is... well... a merging... a combination of the best of your people and the best of the crystalline people.

LtDougMcKnight: Mind you, sooner or later, I'm gonna get back to Montana, and then, there's gonna be a proper barbecue. The word, Ms. Ellis, is fire.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::is glad there is food to eat so that there isn't too awkward a silence::

Kiley Airell: ::chuckles, starts walking, still holding his hand:: Let's keep walking.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::stares:: You're joking.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::walks on::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (Whoa! She's like Emma Frost in the New X-Men comics)

AmythystCrystals: +T+ ::spreads her hands out:: Admiral, if you could come up with a better explanation, I would be most happy to hear it... all I know is that I was not... and now, out of the carnage... I am.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: it's been a long time since I;ve been to a proper bbq

8:25 PM

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: My father didn't have a chance when I was home last

WillFMarlowe: I've always wondered what it would be like to work on a starbase. So many different races come through here that the chief medical officer must have to deal with at least one new disease every day.

VAdm Blackthorne: Alright, granting that you are what you say you are, and ::is inclined to believe her, but doesn't say it outloud:: How is it that you need my help?

Kiley Airell: When we get back to the ship, we could start with the sessions, if you'd like.

LtDougMcKnight: Well then, if you should happen to find yourself in the neighborhood some time, you have an open invitation.

LtDougMcKnight: The fishing alone is worth the trip.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::eyes get large:: at least one?? I don't think i could work on a starbase then, i have a hard enough time on that atlantis

LtJGAaron Markus: That would be acceptable. ::tries to keep a straight face but then chuckles a little::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::smiles:: Why thank you McKnight, I may have to take you up on that..

AmythystCrystals: +T+ ::steps closer to the screen, her white-blonde hair flowing behind her, almost aparkling:: I need to go home.

AmythystCrystals: *sparkling

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: I don't want Noah becoming a complete ship brat and Montana is a lovely area

VAdm Blackthorne: ::watching her hair for a moment, then replies:: Home? Earth?

Kiley Airell: ::smiles:: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

WillFMarlowe: ::turns back to her and smiles, his brow arched:: Nonsense. You're a wonderful doctor.

AmythystCrystals: +T+ No, not Earth... that would be... well, your home, Ian.

AmythystCrystals: +T+ ::smiles warmly again::

VAdm Blackthorne: You're part human, though... so, where would your home would be?

AmythystCrystals: +T+ I need to go to the Crystalline homeworld.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::blushes again:: thank you sir, but i still don't know if i could handle a new desease everyday

VAdm Blackthorne: ::pauses::

LtDougMcKnight: Oh yeah. Went there for a camping trip a few times...never wanted to leave.

VAdm Blackthorne: Getting there without being destroyed would be almost impossible, if not impossible.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::wonders why the sudden subject change:: Ummm. I haven't the faintest idea... When I was a kid, all I wanted was to be in starfleet. Now that I'm here...all I want to do in starfleet. Sound corny?

LtDougMcKnight: Well, and I did. There's nothing more beautiful than a New England autumn. But I built a cabin to make sure I'd always have something there to go back to.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: You should try camping in new mexico.. though it's not quiet the same as my homeworld

VAdm Blackthorne: ::Briefly wonders about how she knew where he was from::

Kiley Airell: ::chuckles:: no. You plan on being a starship captian one day?

8:30 PM

AmythystCrystals: +T+ I think that I could help you there, Admiral.

VAdm Blackthorne: How so?

AmythystCrystals: +T+ Being half human and half Crystal, I could help bridge the gap between our people.

WillFMarlowe: ::drinks the last of his tea and sighs, content for the moment:: We're doctors. We have to find ways to cope with a difficult situation.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::raises his eyebrows and lets out a sigh:: I haven't really thought of that...Maybe....

VAdm Blackthorne: Truly? That has been our failing in relations with the Crystals so far.

LtDougMcKnight: Oh, I have actually. Marine survival training.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::nods and looks at her plate:: i know and i do, it's just...I don't know, it seems even more scary ::shrugs::

VAdm Blackthorne: We can barely talk to them.

LtDougMcKnight: Great American Desert, dontcha know. Mind you, that's not the best way to appreciate your surroundings.

LtJGAaron Markus: I think I'd like to see if I make it past Lt. JG first...

AmythystCrystals: ::smiles again::+T+ Perhaps this is your destiny, then, to foster that impossible understanding.

Kiley Airell: *chuckles*

LtJGAaron Markus: ::smiles::

LtJGAaron Markus: So what about you?

Kiley Airell: You'll make it past jg . . . as long as you don't tick the Admiral off ::grins::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: No it's not..

VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods:: Alright. Too many have died already in this conflict, and if you are what you say you are, then I would never forgive myself for not giving you a chance.

Kiley Airell: Me? hmmm . . . in 10 years? I don't know. I want to be off traveling the Galaxy, meeting new people.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::Wonders why the hell he agreed so quickly::

AmythystCrystals: +T+ Please, Admiral. You are the reason for my creation... please help me fulfill my own destiny?

WillFMarlowe: ::watches a large, reptilian humanoid walk by, and winces when he--she? it?--coughs loudly before walking into a shop::

WillFMarlowe: It would be intimidating, wouldn't it?

LtJGAaron Markus: Oh I'm quite sure I'll end up ticking him off once in a while...Well it seems to me you're doing that right now...

VAdm Blackthorne: Atlantis will depart within the hour and should be there in under a day.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (::blinks:: Does that make the Admiral Crystals daddy? ::hides:: )

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::noticed where his eyes were and looks:: ::nods head slowly:: even more so then it is on the atlantis

VAdm Blackthorne: When I arrive... be ready to fully explain some things.

AmythystCrystals: >Pffft... I was faceted, not born, Brat. :-P <

LtJGNicoleWeis: how long have you been on the atlantis sir/

LtJGNicoleWeis: ?

VAdm Blackthorne: > :-p <

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ()

Kiley Airell: Yeah, that I am. I really enjoy being on the Bridge. That is one thing that I rarely did as a medical officer. Also, I never knew what was going on.

VAdm Blackthorne: I still have a lot of questions.

8:35 PM

LtJGAaron Markus: HA!!!

WillFMarlowe: ::sits back and thinks:: A little longer than a year.

AmythystCrystals: +T+::smiles, her eyes full of crystal tears:: I'll be happy to answer any and all questions you have. Thank you so very much.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ohh, were you stationed anywhere else before?

LtJGAaron Markus: Sorry...I just always thought that was a little funny...

VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods:: See you in a day. Blackthorne out.

LtDougMcKnight: Well, I'll have to do better with a visit one of these days. If Atlantis ever gets back to Earth.

Kiley Airell: what? That I like being on the Bridge?

VAdm Blackthorne: ::Closes the comm and stares at the wall, incredulous::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::wishs she had that whole in the floor in the lab to chuck peanuts in::

LtJGAaron Markus: No...that the doctors never know what's going on...

Kiley Airell: Or that I like knowing what's going on?

LtDougMcKnight: Then again, I suppose I could just retire from this life once the mission is over. I'll be past 40 by then.

VAdm Blackthorne: +Dockmaster+ Admiral Blackthorne to Dockmaster.

Kiley Airell: Well . . . think about it? We're stuck in sickbay while all the action is going on.

VAdm Blackthorne: +Blackthorne+ Dockmaster here, go ahead sir.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: If we dont soon my parents are likely to show up on a transport shuttle

LtJGAaron Markus: True...That's why I like being at the helm...I get to make the action...

VAdm Blackthorne: +Dockmaster+ Initiate emergency recall of Atlantis crew. Atlantis will be departing fifty five minutes.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Grins:: I'll be sure to alert security.

Kiley Airell: ::chuckles::

WillFMarlowe: No. I was fresh out of med school when I came aboard. ::spears a few more greens and changes the subject:: Well, this is odd. We've almost managed to finish a meal without some new crisis developing.

VAdm Blackthorne: D> +Blackthorne+ Aye aye, Admiral.

LtJGAaron Markus: Does that mean I have a control problem?

LtJGAaron Markus: ::chuckles::

Kiley Airell: Yup

LtJGAaron Markus: Figures.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Good, it'll give me and Noah time to find an escape pod.. ::smiles::

Kiley Airell: that's exactly what it means :: tries not to smile::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::nods:: it's sorta nice, i needed this little break

LtDougMcKnight: Kind of an ignominions getaway vehicle for a fighter jock, but it works.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::looks at her, waiting for the smile::

Kiley Airell: ::grins and chuckles::

LtJGAaron Markus: Uh huh.

VAdm Blackthorne: Dockmaster> +STATIONWIDE+ All USS Atlantis crew, return to ship immediately.

Kiley Airell: ::stops, sighs:: Now what?

LtJGAaron Markus: ::looks up at the announcement:: What the?

LtDougMcKnight: ::Looks up at the intercom:: Ah, crap.

Kiley Airell: Looks like we better go. ::looks around:: at least I know where we are now!

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Taking an infant pron to ear infections in a fligter is not the best of ideas.. ::laughs:: beside spit up is so hard to get out of flight suits

LtDougMcKnight: ::Looks to the bartender:: Barkeep, gimme a six pack for the road, will ya?

WillFMarlowe: ::drops his fork onto the plate with an overloud clatter and dabs at his lips with a napkin:: Damn.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::walks out onto the bridge:: Computer, initiate pre-departure sequence.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::looks up at him:: is something wrong?

VAdm Blackthorne: >> Infant pr0n???? Good lord no!! <<

LtJGAaron Markus: Damn, I thought we could just stay lost here...lead the way.

8:40 PM

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (:-p That's not what I meant!)

WillFMarlowe: The intercom. We're to report back to the ship now.

Kiley Airell: ::heads for the Atlantis:: We are almost back where we started.

AmythystCrystals: >Ewwwww!<

VAdm Blackthorne: ::notices the sound of the automation center kicking in as the ship starts to come to life, without all of its crew::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ohh yeah, that thing, darn it, ohh well, i knew free time would be short lived :stands up::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::stays right with Kiley just noticing they were still holding hands::

WillFMarlowe: ::ceases to be annoyed and laughs as he stands:: I had to say it.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: man I hope this recall has nothing to do with gems

WillFMarlowe: ::gestures toward the door:: After you.

AmythystCrystals: >Watch it, Brat!<

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::moves ahead of him, walking back to the ship::

LtJGAaron Markus: ((LOL))

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (What? Oh! ::laughs:: )

Kiley Airell: ((LOL . . . you know you did that on purpose Ellis!))

LtDougMcKnight: ::Takes the six pack and pays the establishment for all the drinks:: What the hell are we going to do with the Atlantis anyway? The thing still looks like a tin can that red necks have been shooting off a fence.

Kiley Airell: ::enters the Atlantis and makes way to the bridge::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: duct tape?

LtDougMcKnight: (Oh, hey, Gems. Just got that.)

WillFMarlowe: ::frowns as the clean station air is replaced by the still somewhat acrid smell of the battle-damaged Atlantis::

Kiley Airell: ((lol . . .duct tape can fix anything))

LtJGAaron Markus: ::still with Kiley::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::scruntches up nose::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods to Airell:: Counselor.

VAdm Blackthorne: Ensign Markus, continue predeparture. We are scheduled for fifty minutes from now, but we will leave as soon as everyone is on board.

LtJGNicoleWeis: think they'll get rid of this smell soon?

LtDougMcKnight: ::Nods as he heads for Atlantis:: That and a boat load of WD40.

VAdm Blackthorne: Which better be in five minutes.

VAdm Blackthorne: >> LtJG, sorry  <<

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::nods:: and some bubble gum for the tougher jobs

LtJGAaron Markus: Aye sir...::sits down at Helm/Ops and hurries up on the prelaunch::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: She'll hold

WillFMarlowe: They'd better, or they'll need to find a new CMO.

Kiley Airell: ::looks to Aaron, with a look that says "I have a bad feeling about this." Takes her seat next to the Admiral's chair::

VAdm Blackthorne: Status of crew recall?

LtJGAaron Markus: ((no prob...didn't even notice...LOL))

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::frowns at the thought of a different CMO then laughs::

WillFMarlowe: ::tosses a look back over his shoulder at the airlock through which crewmembers are still pouring in from the station::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::walking though the air lock:: I should go see what else I can drop down the whole in my lab floor

WillFMarlowe: ::enters a lift after her:: Sickbay.

Kiley Airell: ::looks over to the Admiral, quite concerned::

8:45 PM

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: I still have no idea where that goes..

LtJGAaron Markus: ::noticed Kiley's look and tried to give her a reasurring smile:: Checking. ::checks:: Still a few not onboard.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Glares:: I have a few guesses.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::looks at him:: What?

VAdm Blackthorne: ::drums his fingers impatiently on the chair::

VAdm Blackthorne: All will be explained, Counselor.

LtDougMcKnight: Come on down to my office some time. The place has a brand spanking new design feature.

LtDougMcKnight: A goddam SUN ROOF!

Kiley Airell: ((LOL))

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Your offi.. ::blushs:: No way..

LtJGAaron Markus: ::checks the predeparture status:: Predeparture ready...Just waiting for all hands to get onboard.

VAdm Blackthorne: >>Hahahaha <<<

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::cracks up::

LtDougMcKnight: Yes way.

Kiley Airell: ::nods, still has a bad feeling::

VAdm Blackthorne: Obtain clearance for an accelerated departure.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: would you believe me if I said Drake did it?

LtDougMcKnight: No, much as I'd like to.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::snaps her fingers::

LtDougMcKnight: Besides, I can't yell at Drake.

WillFMarlowe: ::walks off the lift and down the corridor to sickbay:: It was a nice leave while it lasted, anyway. And the company was enjoyable. ::smiles at Weis one last time before entering sickbay::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: well just be glad I didn't mistake it for a diaper geinie

LtJGAaron Markus: Aye, sir...::sends a communique to dockmaster asking for accelerated departure clearance::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::smiles and walks in behind:: yes it was, thank you for lunch sir

WillFMarlowe: ::wanders off:: Nelson! Nelson, where is Nurse Meirill? She's supposed to be the duty nurse now . . .

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::does her ting:

LtDougMcKnight: ::Glares again:: Careful, squirt. I do have a few weeks on you when it comes to date of promotion.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::gets a message back:: Dockmaster clears accelerated departure.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: A few years as well

VAdm Blackthorne: Of course. Crew recall status?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: old man ::smiles::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::is on the ship::

LtDougMcKnight: And while I don't quite take Drake's pleasure in yelling at subordinates before going to my quarters and weeping openly before my sock puppets, I'm still an ass hole.

LtJGAaron Markus: ((everyone onboard?))

8:50 PM

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (ROFL)

WillFMarlowe: Nelson> I took over for her. Apparently one of her brothers was also on leave here and she wanted to go see him.

Kiley Airell: ((yeah))

LtDougMcKnight: (Yeppers.)

LtJGAaron Markus: ((cool))

WillFMarlowe: Meirill> I'm here, doctor . . .

WillFMarlowe: How many supplies have we been able to take on?

LtJGAaron Markus: ::checks:: All hands onboard sir...::sets course to leave the station::

VAdm Blackthorne: Transfer to internal power and clear all moorings.

AmythystCrystals: >::makes a note to visit the sock puppet show when she's on Atlantis::<

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: He has sock puppets?

WillFMarlowe: Meirill> About 60% of what we were expecting to get.

LtJGAaron Markus: Aye, sir...::fingers fly across the panel::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::watches the lights flicker as the power transfers::

Kiley Airell: ::sets the PADD down on her chair next to her, will have to remember not to leave it::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Nods, no expression on his face:: Who else would come to his tea party?

WillFMarlowe: Not even the bare essentials, then.

LtJGAaron Markus: ((whoops))

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::is sorta over hearing will's convo but says noting

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Kennedy's PSI dragon

WillFMarlowe: Which might not be a problem, I suppose. If the rest of the ship is as well-prepared as we are, we may not need much anyway.

LtDougMcKnight: Please, I totally owned that furry bitch.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::completes the power transfer and clears the moorings:: We're all set, Admiral.

VAdm Blackthorne: Back us out on thrusters, then one quarter impulse to spacedoors.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Like you owned that sheep

LtJGAaron Markus: Aye, sir.

WillFMarlowe: Meirill> Sir?

LtDougMcKnight: ::Grins:: Hey, I walked away. He didn't.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::hits the buttons to back up and turn the ship toward the spacedoors::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: Neither did I!

LtDougMcKnight: limped.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::engages impulse to one quarter::

WillFMarlowe: Nothing, Meirill. ::a little louder:: I'll be in my office if anyone needs me. ::finishes his sentence just before the doors hiss shut::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::hopes Atlantis will hold up to this'

8:55 PM

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::raises eyebrow after him and goes about her work::

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The spacedoors part and Atlantis glides through, faster than she really should.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::grins big::

VAdm Blackthorne: Markus, set course for Newer Jersey colony.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: :::-p at McKnight::

Kiley Airell: ::looks the Admiral:: the Newer Jersey Colony Sir?

VAdm Blackthorne: Aye, Newer Jersey.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::looks back at the Admiral with a confused look, than turns back and does as ordered::

VAdm Blackthorne: Warp six.

LtJGAaron Markus: Aye, sir. Course and speed laid in.

VAdm Blackthorne: Try not to give us too many bumps.

VAdm Blackthorne: Execute.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::nods at the bumps joke and Executes::

LtJGNicoleWeis: (i gotta head out all, see you all later_))

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Atlantis streaks off into the distance, her newly fixed warp drive holding together.

VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM

VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM

VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: puased

LtJGAaron Markus: ::paused::

Kiley Airell: ::paused::

LtJGNicoleWeis has left this chat.

VAdm Blackthorne: Attention!

Kiley Airell: ::AA::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::AA::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::AA::

WillFMarlowe: ::AA::

VAdm Blackthorne: Well, nicely done and the plot thickens next week.

LtDougMcKnight: ::AA::

VAdm Blackthorne: A big welcome to our guest star!

AmythystCrystals: And gets shinier. ::smiles::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::claps and cheers::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::applauds::

LtDougMcKnight: Gem in da hizouse!

AmythystCrystals: Thanks, Atlantis!

9:00 PM

VAdm Blackthorne: Well, that's all for this week... tune in next week to see what becomes of the mysterious woman that appeared out of nowhere from dead crystals and humans.

VAdm Blackthorne: Dismissed!
