 I got it now.

 Admiral on deck!

 7:27

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Evening everyone!

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::laughs::

 7:27

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 Evening Admiral. How are ya?

 7:27

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 Hey Admirla

 7:27

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Watching the Sharks!

 7:27

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 Evening Will!

 7:28

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 Hallo, everyone.

 7:28

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Hey Will

 7:28

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 Hey Will

 7:29

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::returns from getting snacks::

 7:30

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Any other hockey fans in here?

 7:30

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 Not really.

 7:30

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 I went to a fight once, and a hockey game broke out.

 7:30

 

 

 

 

 Other than that, haven't watched.

 7:31

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 LOL

 7:31

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 I'm still in mourning over my poor Wings.

 7:31

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Hopefully the Sharks will avenge you, Will

 7:32

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 Hopefully so. Even if Detroit won against Calgary, I would not look forward to a series against San Jose.

 7:32

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Yeah, we're having a good run out here

 7:33

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 Oregon needs a sports team.

 7:33

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 Hey Ketchup!

 7:33

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Blazers

 CptKetchum

 

 Evening Mr Markus

 7:33

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 ::looks at Blackthorne:: Precisely my point.

 7:33

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 They used to be good

 7:33

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 Ouch.

 7:34

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 But at least no teams I hate are left. I know someone who wants the Flyers to win the cup, so I'm kind of hoping they win . . . they did win a huge game on Monday.

 7:34

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 Yeah, now they are pot-smoking losers. We need a team that is good.

 7:34

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Yeah, they woke up in that game

 7:35

 

 

 

 

 I'd like to see Sharks-Flyers for the cup

 7:35

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 Oklahoma needs a sports team...

 7:36

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Alright, let's get this show on the road

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Atlantis has departed Starbase 22 before her repairs were complete.

 7:37

 

 

 

 

 Under Blackthorne's orders, we're making our best speed back to Newer Jersey colony.

 7:37

 

 

 

 

 The circumstances of the trip are still unknown to the crew.

 7:37

 

 

 

 

 Questions?

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Mr. Markus, assemble the department heads in the conference room.

 7:39

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::sitting at Helm/Ops steering towards Newer Jersey:: Aye, sir.

 7:39

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 *::walking among the crystals on the Newer Jersey terrain::

 7:39

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 You think they'd realize that leaving BEFORE repairs are finished is why we keep getting screwed in battles. But...NO! Leave it to the miracle workers in engineering.

 7:39

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ::walks out into sickbay, PADD in hand, almost growling at the inventory displayed on its innocent, glare-resistant screen::

 7:40

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 Jeddin> We try. ::smirks::

 7:40

 

 

 

 

 Trying is one thing, actually doing it is another.

 7:40

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::sitting on the Bridge::

 7:40

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 Nelson> Problems?

 7:41

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 +Ship wide+ Department heads to the main bridge conference room, please.

 7:41

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 ::looks up:: Of course. Just precious.

 7:41

 

 

 

 

 ::smiles falsely:: Well, I'm off to the conference room.

 7:41

 

 

 

 

 Jeddin, you've got engineering.

 7:41

 

 

 

 

 ::walks out::

 7:41

 

 

 

 

 Jeddin> Someone stop him before he gets bitter.

 7:42

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::stands and walks to the CR door::

 7:42

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::checks destination arrival time::

 7:42

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 ::looks around for TKirr:: Hmm.. Guess I'm filling in again.. ::heads for the CR::

 7:42

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ::looks up at the intercom:: Several. Unfortunately, rather than see to them, I have to go to a meeting.

 7:42

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Markus, join us.

 7:42

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ::tosses the PADD onto a biobed:: See what you can do with this. I'll be back shortly.

 7:42

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::blinks:: Yes, sir.

 7:43

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 ::enters the lift:: Bridge.

 7:43

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Aslan, you have the bridge.

 7:43

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ::leaves sickbay and stalks down the corridor::

 7:43

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::enters the CR:

 7:43

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::gets up and heads for the CR and catches a glance at Kiley on the way, smiling ever so gently::

 7:43

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ::enters a turbolift:: Bridge.

 7:44

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 ::arrives on the bridge and walks into the conference room, taking his table::

 7:44

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::stands and heads towards the CR::

 7:44

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ::steps off the lift and walks across the bridge and into the conference room::

 7:44

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::walks to the head of the table and stands::

 7:44

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::enters the CR and realizes he doesn't know where he should sit, so he takes a spot close to the opposite the Admiral::

 7:45

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ::sits down as Blackthorne reaches the head of the table::

 7:46

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::watches everyone file in::

 7:46

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 ::enters the CR and take a seat at the far end of the table::

 7:46

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Alright, I'll keep this short.

 7:46

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::finds a place to sit::

 7:46

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Our destination is Newer Jersey colony.

 7:47

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 ::taps a conveniently placed PADD::

 7:47

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::lifts one eyebrow::

 7:47

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 ::looks at the Admiral as if he just grew another head::

 7:47

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 :erks an eyebrow, and is some reason not surprised::

 7:47

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 A lifeform has ... grown.. there.

 7:48

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 Grown there, Sir?

 7:48

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Who seems to be a hybrid of crystal and human, plus whatever else was there at the time.

 7:48

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 ::now is surprised, turns::

 7:48

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::unbelievebly the eyebrow goes a little higher::

 7:48

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::looks at the Admiral in surprise::

 7:48

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 She contacted me and spoke of being able to possibly bring peace.

 7:48

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 (that eyebrows going end up on your back, Aaron.. lol)

 7:49

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 :auses in his angry simmering at the mention of the hybrid::

 7:49

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ((LOL))

 7:49

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 She spoke in standard?

 7:49

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 I am inclined to believe her.

 7:49

 

 

 

 

 Yes, she did.

 7:49

 

 

 

 

 I'm guessing she can speak their language too.

 7:50

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 Isn't this a lucky break.

 7:50

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 So, questions.

 7:51

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 Are you sure we can trust her?

 7:51

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 What will be doing with her once we've picked her up?

 7:51

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 ::nods slightly in agreement::

 7:51

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 We will be taking her to the crystalline homeworld, at her request.

 7:51

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::quietly listens to everyone::

 7:51

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 We're entering their space?

 7:51

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 As for trusting her, we have few options.

 7:51

 

 

 

 

 Indeed we are.

 7:52

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 Are any other ships going as well?

 7:52

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 How much time will I have to examine her?

 7:52

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 ::making sharp notes::

 7:52

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 The journey will be fairly long, so a goodly amount of time.

 7:52

 

 

 

 

 Starfleet has more than a passing interest in this matter, so we're fairly high profile right now

 7:53

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ::nods and sits back, tapping a few notes into a small PADD::

 7:53

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 Accompanying ships, sir?

 7:53

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 None.

 7:54

 

 

 

 

 Discovery stayed behind at 22.

 7:54

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 ::thinks::  They're the lucky ones.

 7:54

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 Will she help us learn to communicate with the others?

 7:55

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 We'll have to ask her. Our conversation was short... but productive.

 7:55

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 If we do this alone, and they decide that peace isn't worth it...we won't survive an onslaught.

 7:55

 

 

 CptKetchum disconnected

 7:55

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Possibly. I have faith in our ability to escape if necessary.

 7:56

 

 

 

 

 At any rate, we should be arriving back at the colony in under ten minutes. Take your stations and be ready.

 7:56

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::nods, satified his opinion was heard::

 7:56

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Drake, I'm gonna need everything out of your engines if she's wrong.

 7:56

 

 

 

 

 Dismissed.

 7:57

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 Sir, do you have a moment. ::steps up to him::

 7:57

 

 

 

 

 {{?}}

 7:57

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Yes, Major?

 7:57

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::stands up and quickly heads for the Helm::

 7:57

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 Can I talk to you about our current engineering situation?

 7:57

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::nods::

 7:58

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::stands up looks at the Admiral for a minute and then heads out to the Bridge, not overly happy::

 7:58

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::sits in his chair and runs a diagnostic on the Helm systems::

 7:58

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 ::walks out and takes the sci station the bridge, looking confused and concered.::

 7:59

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 ::waits for the CR to empty:: Sir, we're getting progressively and progressively worse.

 7:59

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ::stands and walks out of the conference room and onto the bridge, pausing for a moment, considering something::

 7:59

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 My teams can't keep up with the wear and tear and the lack of time at starbase for proper repairs.

 7:59

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::listens::

 7:59

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::looks over to Will:: Something troubling you doc?

 8:00

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Can you hold her together?

 8:00

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 The warp engines are at 83% and not looking to make it passed 85%. Phasers are up and running, as with torpedoes, but I can't guarantee their integrity in a fire fight.

 8:00

 

 

 

 

 Impulse is minimal with the exception of rerouting additional power. Life support is strong, but the only available thing to transfer emergency power to.

 8:01

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Do what you can. You'll get your starbase time after this mission, one way or another. She's taken a beating and served us well so far.

 8:01

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ::looks up:: Not at all. Counselor, I intend to perform every test of which I know on this new life form.

 8:01

 

 

 

 

 Would you care to be present during the examination?

 8:01

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 ::wonders how much this new being knows about everything that has happened between them and us.. feels uncomfotable at the thought since it was her mistakeingly shooting one their ships that started this::

 8:01

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Certainly more than a lot of other classes can handle, that's for sure.

 8:01

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::nods:: Yes, I would.

 8:01

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 Sir, we need an overhaul.

 8:01

 

 

 

 

 We're technically still two years to three out, but we've taken a beating.

 8:01

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 I'll contact you when everything is ready.

 8:02

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Impossible at this time. But after this mission, yes.

 8:02

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ::turns and walks into the lift:: Sickbay.

 8:02

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::smiles slightly:: Thank you.

 8:02

 

 

 

 

 ::moves over to her chair and takes a seat::

 8:02

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 Sir, I can't guarantee you I can maintain everything that we need for a safe trip there and back. If we meet hostilities, things are going to go south very quickly.

 8:03

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 I'll keep that in mind. But I also expect the situation to improve as we go along.

 8:03

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 I hope so, sir.

 8:03

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 (Hey Nici)

 8:03

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::nods:: Thank you, Major. Do your best.

 8:04

 

 

 

 

 (hey Weis)

 8:04

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ::walks down the corridor and into sickbay::

 8:04

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 I'll try, Admiral. ::nods and walks out onto the bridge::

 8:04

 

 LtJGNicoleWeis

 

 ((hey guys sorry i'm soi late))

 8:04

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::enters the bridge::

 8:04

 

 

 

 

 ETA, Markus?

 8:05

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::checks ETA:: 4 minutes, sir.

 8:05

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Standard orbit upon arrival.

 8:05

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::nods:: Aye sir.

 8:05

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Ellis, initiate scans of the surface and locate our guest.

 8:05

 

 

 

 

 Markus, make arrangements for quarters.

 8:05

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 Aye sir.

 8:06

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 ::enters TL:: Engineering.

 8:06

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 ::looks at him a moment then finally nods:: Aye Sir.. ::starts scanning::

 8:06

 

 LtJGNicoleWeis

 

 ::in sickbay doing inventory::

 8:06

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 ::runs a troubled hand through his hair:: I hope diplomacy works.

 8:06

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::does not like this idea much, watches the Admiral::

 8:07

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 :uts in the request for guest quarters and security to escort from the transporter room or shuttle bay::

 8:07

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Being that she's the only humanoid left on the planet, it shouldn't be difficult to locate her.

 8:07

 

 

 

 

 Mr. Markus, hail the surface.

 8:07

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ::walks to a biobed and starts tapping commands into the console at the end of it:: I hope you won't be disappointed if you find very little inventory to check, doctor.

 8:07

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::nods and hails::

 8:08

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 No Sir but there's a lot of left over crystal jun.. err, pieces..

 8:08

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 ::walks out onto the deck::

 8:08

 

 

 

 

 ::and into Engineering::

 8:08

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 I have a reading.. ::looks at it:: I think..

 8:08

 

 LtJGNicoleWeis

 

 not disappointed at all ::looks over at will:: this will sound bad, but i just wanted something to do

 8:09

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::slows to 1/4 impulse and sets for standard orbit::

 8:09

 

 

 

 

 No response yet, sir.

 8:09

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 +T+ Atlantis! How wonderful of you to arrive so quickly! I'm so glad to see you have arrived safely!

 8:09

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ::finishes with the biobed and walks over to the suppy lockers with an empty tray:: So what do we have?

 8:10

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::realizes he spoke too soon::

 8:10

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 +T+ Thank you. We will be ready to transport you aboard in a moment, if that's alright.

 8:10

 

 LtJGNicoleWeis

 

 ::looks at padd and frowns:: nothing really, we need to stock up badly

 8:10

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 +T+ Thank you, Admiral. It will be lovely to speak with you, face to face.

 8:11

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 +T+ Stand by.

 8:11

 

 

 

 

 Triangulate that signal and confirm her location.

 8:11

 

 

 

 

 I will in the transporter room.

 8:11

 

 

 

 

 Airell, you're with me.

 8:11

 

 

 

 

 Ellis, you have the bridge.

 8:11

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::nods, stands and walks to the turbolift::

 8:11

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::walks to the TL::

 8:11

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 Aye Sir.. ::blinks::

 8:11

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::enters TL:: TR1.

 8:11

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::takes a glance at Kiley when she leaves::

 8:12

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::waits for the doors to close:: Are you sure this is such a wise idea Sir?

 8:12

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 I'm not sure we have a lot of other options.

 8:12

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 Us and everyone else in this ship.

 8:13

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 Maybe finding out more information first.

 8:13

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 There will be time for that as we travel to their gateway.

 8:13

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ::drops a couple petri dishes and tissue containers onto the tray, then closes Mother Hubbard's Storage Locker::

 8:13

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::The TL arrives::

 8:13

 

 

 

 

 ::walks with Airell to the TR::

 8:14

 

 

 

 

 AT that time, I will make the final decision.

 8:14

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::nods:: but will it be too late then?

 8:14

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 We can always turn around before then.

 8:14

 

 LtJGNicoleWeis

 

 so, what are you up to sir?

 8:14

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Entering into their space is when we commit.

 8:14

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 ::stays at the sci station:: Has Sec arrived to meet the Admiral, Mister Markus?

 8:15

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::they enter the TR::

 8:15

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::nods::

 8:15

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 ::moving around handing out repairs:: Gods help us.

 8:15

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ::leaves the tray on the biobed with a hypospray and a medical tricorder:: I'm expecting a very unusual patient to arrive within the hour.

 8:15

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 +Markus+ Are we ready to transport?

 8:15

 

 LtJGNicoleWeis

 

 the crystal guy?

 8:15

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::checks with security:: Security team just outside the TR. +Blackthorne+ Aye, sir.

 8:16

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 Admiral Blackthorne tells us that she's a crystal-human hybrid.

 8:16

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 +Markus+ Energize.

 8:16

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 ::shimmers onto the transporter pad, with a few extra sparkles thrown in for good measure:: Oh, my... such a lovely way to travel!

 8:16

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::hits the E button::

 8:16

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 ::smiles warmly:: Ian Blackthorne! Admiral, thank you so much for coming to help me!

 8:16

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::smiles as she arrives:: Welcome to the Atlantis.

 8:16

 

 LtJGNicoleWeis

 

 interesting, can i meet her?

 8:16

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::smiles to the woman on the Transporter pad, though cautious::

 8:16

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 I am hoping that you can help us, in return.

 8:16

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 ::steps off the pad and takes Ian's hand in both of hers:: How nice to finally meet you.

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 Has our.. guest.. arrrived safely, Ensign?

 8:17

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::smiles:: Likewise... I'm afraid you have me at a disadvantage.

 8:17

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 Yes she has.

 8:17

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ::walks to an equipment locker and withdraws a few other diagnostic instruments:: I think I would like you to be here. :laces the instruments on the tray::

 8:17

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 And before you ask, her quarters are arranged.

 8:18

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 ::smiles at Kiley:: Kiley Airell... such a pretty name! It suits you.

 8:18

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::blinks as he didn't even get to introduce her::

 8:18

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 How did you know my name?

 8:18

 

 LtJGNicoleWeis

 

 ::smiles:: thank you sir, is there anything i can help you with?

 8:18

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 Oh, how awkward of me. My name is... well, I thought about this for awhile.... My name is Amythyst Crystals.

 8:18

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Appropriate. ::smiles::

 8:19

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::nods:: That didn't answer my question though Amythyst

 8:19

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 Oh, I'm sensitive... not that I can read minds, but I can tell a great deal from a person just by being with them.

 8:19

 

 

 

 

 ::smiles warmly:: I do hope I don't make you uncomfortable.

 8:20

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 I'm afraid this whole situation causes unease.

 8:20

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 I know... you are right to be suspicious of me.

 8:20

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 Make sure Lab 1 is ready. Full staff. Take supplies from 2 and 3 if you need to.

 8:20

 

 LtJGNicoleWeis

 

 ::nods:: yes sir

 8:20

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ((Be right back.))

 8:20

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 I have no real guarantee that I am not harmless... but I hope to allay your fears during this trip.

 8:21

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::nods:: We do have quarters arranged for you.

 8:21

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 How thoughtful of you!

 8:21

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::nods, smiles:: hopefully.

 8:22

 

 LtJGNicoleWeis

 

 ::moves about i labs 1 2 and 3 doing stuff::

 8:22

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 This way then, Ms. Crystals.

 8:22

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::scans to see if anything is happening on the planet or anywhere else nearby::

 8:23

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 ::takes Ian's arm:: You must be so proud of your ship, Ian. Such a graceful vessel.

 8:23

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 Any thing we should worry about out there, Mister Markus?

 8:23

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 {{Graceful... ::Watches the starboard nacelle fall off::}}

 8:23

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 ::smiles up at him, her eyes sparkling::

 8:23

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::surprised that she took his arm, but is quite comfortable with it, to his surprise::

 8:23

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::looks up:: Oh...Um, nothing yet...

 8:23

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::looks into her sparkling eyes:: Well, she's taken a beating lately, but held together and served us well. I'm proud of her and her crew.

 8:24

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 Dilithium reserve?

 8:24

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 Kiley, I hope we'll meet later. I want to ask you so many questions!

 8:24

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 P'tel> Just enough for a trek there and back, sir.

 8:24

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::watches the two::

 8:24

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::starts to walk with her out into the corridor::

 8:24

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 Keep an eye out.. I have a bad feeling and I don't wanna get caught of gaurd..

 8:24

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::dismisses the security team::

 8:24

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 Your crew is wonderful, Ian. You owe a great deal to them. They love this ship as much as you do.

 8:25

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 2 security guards> ::looks astonished at being dismissed::

 8:25

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ::looks around sickbay, giving a few more orders to nearby techs and nurses::

 8:25

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Oh, most definitely. I'm just wondering how you already know all of this.

 8:25

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 {{S-D}}

 8:25

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::follows the Admiral and the guest:: I am curious too

 8:25

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 {{It's a SPY!  }}

 8:25

 

 LtJGNicoleWeis

 

 ::goes to will:: i think for the most part we're all good sir

 8:26

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 ::moves to another console:: Impulse engines?

 8:26

 

 

 

 

 Miller> Barely functioning.

 8:26

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 2SG's> ::nod at the Admiral and begin to walk away::

 8:26

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 "Good" might be a stretch, but thank you, doctor.

 8:26

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 Miller, you get to get out and push if we can't move. ::smiles::

 8:26

 

 

 

 

 Miller> Sir?

 8:26

 

 

 

 

 Jeddin> It's a joke, Cade.

 8:26

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 ::scans the area and the surface and storing the information in the sci lab computers for later looks::

 8:27

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 ::sighs and rests her head on Ian's arm for just a moment:: How to explain.... well, like I mentioned before... I believe that part of what makes me up is the resonance, the feelings of the people who died so tragically on the col

 8:27

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Remarkable.

 8:27

 

 LtJGNicoleWeis

 

 your welcome doctor

 8:27

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 colony

 8:28

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Absolutely remarkable. At any other time, I'd say impossible.

 8:28

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 Yes, it is remarkable

 8:29

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::gets a message that the Security team was dismissed:: Lt., the security team was dismissed by the Admiral. ::slight confusion in his voice::

 8:29

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 In that case... what is our destination? The anomaly that the Crystals use as a gateway?

 8:29

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 Well, what will be even more remarkable will be the eventual peace that the crew of the Atlantis will be able to forge with the Crystalline people.

 8:30

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 Forge?

 8:30

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 For what reason?

 8:30

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 I certainly hope so.

 8:31

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 Forge.... make... bring into being.

 8:31

 

 

 

 

 ::smiles::

 8:31

 

 

 

 

 How *do* you get your hair to be so shiny, Kiley?

 8:31

 

 LMajAdamDrake

 

 It's like trying to hold a skyscraper together with toothpicks and glue.

 8:31

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ((*laughs* Opps!!! I didn't read the word peace . . . read "the crew of the Atlantis will force with the Crystalline people"))

 8:32

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 Unknown, they're reporting that he just....dismissed them. The last they saw was the Admiral and the guest walking off together with Kiley following behind.

 8:32

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::chuckles::

 8:32

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 +Blackthorne+ Admiral, this is Doctor Marlowe. We are ready to receive our guest at her earliest convenience.

 8:32

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 You seem to know so much about me, I would have assumed that you'd know I don't pay much attention to my appearance ::smiles::

 8:32

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 +Marlowe+ So noted, Doctor. Blackthorne out.

 8:32

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 Yes, we can use that gateway. it will be faster than the 4 years your ship would need to travel there through conventional means.

 8:33

 

 LtJGNicoleWeis

 

 ::stands around::

 8:33

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 Can you track this person, Markus?

 8:33

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 But it is really lovely.

 8:33

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 +Markus+ Blackthorne to Markus. Set course for the crystalline anomaly, warp five.

 8:33

 

 

 

 

 I'm eager to get underway.

 8:34

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::looks at Ellis and than sets course for the anomaly::+Blackthorne+Aye, sir.

 8:34

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 +Markus+ Execute.

 8:34

 

 Kiley Airell

 

 ::smiles:: Thank you.

 8:34

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::Executes::

 8:34

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 ::looks up at Ian:: I'd love to see more of your crew.

 8:34

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Well, my medical staff is *quite* anxious to meet you.

 8:35

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 ::turns to Weis as the ship goes into warp:: We're still here. What do you know.

 8:35

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::checks to see if the guest can be monitored:: She can be monitored just by scanning for the crystals.

 8:35

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::arrives at the door to her quarters:: But these are your quarters, if you'd like to have a look.

 8:35

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 Wonderful! Will you be there, too?

 8:35

 

 LtJGNicoleWeis

 

 huh?

 8:35

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 Keep a lock on our guest at all times, Markus, and lock it so it can't be turned off until it's off the ship.. I'll take responsabliny for this..

 8:36

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 ::smiles and laughs:: Certainly.

 8:36

 

 

 Lt jg D Ellis

 

 I just have this... feeling.. we need to watch out backs..

 8:36

 

 WillFMarlowe

 

 Nothing a'tall.

 8:36

 

 

 AmythystCrystals

 

 Oh, I'm not tired at all. I'd really rather interact with your people, if you don't mind.

 8:36

 

 

 LtJGAaron Markus

 

 ::nods:: Yes, sir. ::sets monitor::

 8:36

 

 LtJGNicoleWeis

 

 i'm so confused sir, i'm sorry

 8:36

 

 

 VAdm Blackthorne

 

 Very well. Sickbay is this way.
