CptKetchum: ::Yells:: BERNADETTE! :-x

ElRiov trIdrys: Didn't they do a movie about her song?

LtJGNicoleWeis: she has a song?

ElRiov trIdrys: The Song of Bernadette ...

LtJGNicoleWeis: oh

LtJGAaron Markus: Yeah, it's called 'Maneater'.

VAdm Blackthorne: Alright, we're gonna go ahead and get started without our special guest.

ElRiov trIdrys:

LtJGNicoleWeis: ohh but she's so special, can't we wait for her

7:45 PM

MajorAZinthys: ::Blows into whistle::

MajorAZinthys: Attention!!

LtJGAaron Markus: ::AA::

ElRiov trIdrys: ::AA::

LtDougMcKnight: ::AA::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::A:A::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::AA::

Kiley Airell: ::AA::

WillFMarlowe: ::AA::

VAdm Blackthorne: We've already waited 15 minutes for her, so we need to go ahead and get started.


Lt TKirr: ::AA::

VAdm Blackthorne: Atlantis is en route to the coordinates of the anomaly that the crystalline beings were using as a gateway from their own space, carrying our new passenger, Amythyst Crystals.

VAdm Blackthorne: She has promised to bring peace between the crystals and us, given her hybrid state, but we have to get her to their homeworld.

VAdm Blackthorne: Questions?

LtDougMcKnight: Yeah, I got one.

VAdm Blackthorne: Doug?

LtDougMcKnight: Is Atlantis still being held together with chewing gum?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: and duck tape

ElRiov trIdrys: and staples

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: and denal floss

LtJGNicoleWeis: ohh goodness

LtDougMcKnight: And pre-chewed Sugar Daddies.

VAdm Blackthorne: Basically. We didn't have enough time in spacedock to get all the repairs we needed.

LtDougMcKnight: And we're going in alone?

VAdm Blackthorne: That we are.

LtDougMcKnight: Ah, sounds perfectly sensible to me.

7:50 PM

LtJGNicoleWeis: ohh yeah, we're gonna live

LtDougMcKnight: coughmutinycough

Kiley Airell: LOL

LtJGNicoleWeis: <-----totally sarcastic

Lt TKirr: Of course you are, you have Logic aboard.

VAdm Blackthorne: I'm a lot more confident in the ability of one ship to run like hell if things go wrong than three.

VAdm Blackthorne: So, without further delay...

VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

LtJGNicoleWeis: that is true

VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

LtJGAaron Markus: ::sits at Helm/Ops trying hard to concentrate::

Lt TKirr: ::at Science on Bridge::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::is sickbay preparing as best as possible::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::in the lab looking though the reads we took while picking up the guest::

MajorAZinthys: ::Pilots his runabout through the final docking sequences to link up with Atlantis::

CptKetchum has left this chat.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::on the bridge, noticing Zinthys's approach::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::sweat slowly begins to build on his forehead and palms get slick from persperation::

WillFMarlowe: ::in sickbay, checking equipment, supplies, and personnel::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Going from place to place, conducting quick inspections of the guards he's placed at every sensitive spot on the ship, a second in tow::

LtDougMcKnight: Marine> ::Waits in the shuttlebay to greet his CO::

LtJGNicoleWeis: sir, i know we're really low on supplies so i sorta have an idea, not a good one but one

WillFMarlowe: ::turns to Weis, listening::

MajorAZinthys: ::In true Atlantis fashion, doesn't cut out the engines until just before the docking clamps lock on::

LtDougMcKnight: O'Grady, for the duration of this insanity, I want guards stationed on every deck, 24/7.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::smirks::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::also in SB, doing inventory:::

LtJGAaron Markus: Major Zinthys is docked sir.

Lt TKirr: The shuttle has docked.

Lt TKirr: <<(O.o)>>

Kiley Airell: ::on the bridge, quiet::

LtJGNicoleWeis: well, my thought is to first of seperate, like ration the stuff used and people who are mildly injured don't really get treated, i mean they get treated

LtJGAaron Markus: <<Gotta be quicker on the draw>>

LtJGNicoleWeis: but like they get treated in like the old time fashion

MajorAZinthys: ::Powers it down::

Lt TKirr: <<I had it written, waiting. =P>>

MajorAZinthys: ::leaves the ship::

LtJGNicoleWeis: and the people who are really hurt we use the now a days stuff on

LtJGNicoleWeis: does that make sense to you sir?

LtJGAaron Markus: <<It's that ENTER key that counts>>

LtDougMcKnight: Marine> Welcome back, Major. Lieutenant McKnight apoligizes that he can't be here in person.

7:55 PM

MajorAZinthys: <<::Clears throat:: This isn't Jeopardy! The first one on the buzzer doesn't win>>

VAdm Blackthorne: Now arrange someone to actually bring the runabout into a shuttlebay instead of using that external docking connector.

LtDougMcKnight: Marine> He felt it vital that he make sure security arrangements were in place, given our current situation.

MajorAZinthys: <<Hush, you>>

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::stands there chewing lower lip feeling sorta dumb::

LtJGAaron Markus: Aye, sir. ::taps a few buttons under his sweaty palms::

MajorAZinthys: Which is...?

WillFMarlowe: Of course. You will see to that if we get should get into trouble?

LtDougMcKnight: (Zinthys isn't actually aboard? D'oh!)

MajorAZinthys: ::Walking towards the TL::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::nods:: yes sir

Lt TKirr: <<He cheated.>>

Lt TKirr: <<Lazy.>>

LtDougMcKnight: Marine> ::Following:: We've picked up a guest, who claims to have the coordinates of the crystalline homeworld. Given that this guest appears partly crystalline herself, it's being regarded as a major security risk.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::begins to feel dizzy as the sweat accumulate on his face:: Sir, may I be excused?

MajorAZinthys: I have no doubt of this.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::turns away and goes back to her massive inventorying of their minimual supplies::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::needs a break.. walks over to the rub covering the hole in the floor she made that TKirr still hasn't found. left the room and looks down to see if McKinghts down there:: I wonder what he did with the fish I threw down there

LtDougMcKnight: Marine> Also, given the fact that we're headed to their world alone, we're on high alert.

MajorAZinthys: ::Enters the TL::

VAdm Blackthorne: Are you alright, Lt?

LtJGAaron Markus: I don't think so, sir.

Kiley Airell: ::Looks to Aaron, a little worried::

VAdm Blackthorne: Report to sickbay.

Lt TKirr: ::looks up at Markus::

MajorAZinthys: So a half-crystal has given us the location to their homeworld, and we're travelling there alone, damaged?

LtJGAaron Markus: ::barely nods as he stumbles off to the TL::

Kiley Airell: ::moves off after Aaron:: I'm going to escort him there Admiral.

LtDougMcKnight: Marine> That's about the size of it, yes sir.

MajorAZinthys: Deck 1.

VAdm Blackthorne: Very well.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::enters TL and waits for Kiley::

Kiley Airell: ::enters and waits for the doors to close:: it's getting much worse, isn't it?

LtDougMcKnight: Marine> Deck 7.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::goes back to trying to find out how Amy was formed.. the "out of the dead" is a little to creepy::

LtDougMcKnight: (Or whatever deck security's on.)

MajorAZinthys: ::The TL stops and Allen gets off::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::nods:: Yes...

MajorAZinthys: Thanks for the update.

8:00 PM

LtDougMcKnight: Marine> Sir.

MajorAZinthys: ::Walks to the Tactical console::

LtJGAaron Markus: You didn't have to come....

VAdm Blackthorne: Major, welcome back aboard.

Kiley Airell: I was worried that you wouldn't make it to sickbay

MajorAZinthys: Thank me in a few minutes sir.

Lt TKirr: ::gives Zinthys a moment's gaze, her version of a proper welcome::

Kiley Airell: You were walking pretty badly

MajorAZinthys: ::Checks the ship's status::

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > :::in quarters nursing the baby she now has ... S'NacLuv::::

LtDougMcKnight: Marine> ::Takes the lift back down to security::

MajorAZinthys: ::nods to T'Kirr::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::hops up on a biobed to think for a moment::

MajorAZinthys: <<LOL!!>>

LtJGAaron Markus: ::half jokingly:: I'm standing?

MajorAZinthys: Admiral, may I speak with you in your ready room?

VAdm Blackthorne: Certainly.

Kiley Airell: Yes, now, when you aren't walking or moving.

VAdm Blackthorne: T'Kirr, you have the bridge.

Lt TKirr: ::nods curtly::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::stands and walks to the RR::

MajorAZinthys: ::Follows::

LtJGAaron Markus: I was kidding...

Lt TKirr: ::continues to monitor long range sensors, along with repairs::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Thinking:: 2 men per deck should be sufficient for now. But I want them fully armed.

MajorAZinthys: ::Scarcely waits for the door to close:: Permission to speak freely, Admiral?

LtJGAaron Markus: ::steps off the TL as it stops and heads for SB::

LtDougMcKnight: O'Grady> ::Nods:: I'll have the order sent, sir. Anything else?

VAdm Blackthorne: Of course, Major.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: I'm not getting anywhere with this.. I need someone who understands this crap.. ::stands taking a padd with her::

Kiley Airell: ::follows::

MajorAZinthys: Have you been unduly influenced by this crystalline woman, or have you simply lost your mind?

VAdm Blackthorne: ::knows what's coming::

Lt TKirr: <<rofl>>

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::sits on the one biobed just thinking, doing nothing else for the moment::

LtDougMcKnight: No, not really. Just let all marines know to be ready to have their off hours cut short when we go to general quarters.

MajorAZinthys: Because those are the only two reasons I can see for what's going on.

VAdm Blackthorne: Starfleet has a vested interest in the success of this mission, Major.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::heads for sick bay to ask a doctor::

WillFMarlowe: ::stands in front of a large wall display, tapping a PADD and checking it against the data on the console::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::enters SB, heads for a biobed, sits down and takes a deep breath::

MajorAZinthys: As do we all, sir. If the consequences of a failed mission that I worry about.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::looks at aaron and hops down, going to him::

LtJGNicoleWeis: you okay lt?

MajorAZinthys: <<If=It's>>

VAdm Blackthorne: Newer Jersey and Starbase 16 have already been PR disasters.

Kiley Airell: Doctor Marlowe, we could use your help.

ElRiov trIdrys: :::finishes his portion of inventory, gets tea from replicator and sits and begins entering data for report:::

VAdm Blackthorne: Starfleet is willing to take the chance on this.

MajorAZinthys: If by "PR disasters" you mean "resounding defeats," then, yes, I agree.

LtJGNicoleWeis: or dr. marlowe can help you, though he's kinda busy ::smiles::

8:05 PM

VAdm Blackthorne: And I am confident in our ability to escape if things go wrong.

LtDougMcKnight: It's just not right...

WillFMarlowe: ::looks up as Airell and Ellis enter:: Yes?

LtDougMcKnight: O'Grady> Sir?

LtJGAaron Markus: ::takes Kiley's hand and attempts to concentrate::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (I'm not there yet)

MajorAZinthys: More than once this ship has had it's warp engines damaged against these things. How can you say that you can be confident we're going to be able to escape from their space?

Kiley Airell: I think it would be better if Dr. Marlowe helped ::takes Aaron's hand::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::moves away and lets marlowe work with markus and airell::

WillFMarlowe: <<I know. I scrolled up and re-read the last few lines. Sorry.>>

LtDougMcKnight: The shiny bitch gave us these bastards' return address, and we're using it to, more likely than not, get ourselves killed.

WillFMarlowe: What's the problem?

LtDougMcKnight: We have their base...we should just be nuking it into silly putty.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::moves back to do more inventory stuff::

Kiley Airell: ::looks to Aaron:: would you mind if I left for a minute?

LtJGAaron Markus: ::looks at the doctor hesitant to say what's wrong::

VAdm Blackthorne: Because we're not going to stay around and fight if things turn bad. We'll be hightailing it out of there, and I believe we can outrun them.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Clears his throat:: But you didn't hear that from me, lieutenant. Every officer knows we're out here to listen to Brahams, sip Chateau Picard, and rescue kittens.

VAdm Blackthorne: Even in our current situation.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::looks at Kiley in that hurry back expression and nods::

Lt TKirr: ::watches her scanners, enjoying the quiet bridge::

Kiley Airell: ::smiles, and moves off to talk to Dr. Weis for a moment::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Mutters:: Kirk never woulda put up with this shit. Not unless he had some god-like slug making him.

WillFMarlowe: ::raises his eyebrows amiably:: I can't do anything for you, Lieutenant, if you won't tell me what's wrong.

LtDougMcKnight: That's all, Lieutenant. You're dismissed.

MajorAZinthys: Forgive me, I have been away for a little while. Between now and then, have we been able to determine if there are 16 invisible cloaked ships off our port bow?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (We rescue kittens?)

VAdm Blackthorne: Yes, we have.

LtDougMcKnight: O'Grady> ::Nods and breaks off from McKnight, heading for the nearest lift::

Kiley Airell: ::softly:: Dr. Weis, can I talk to you for a moment?

LtJGAaron Markus: ::looks back at Marlowe:: You are aware of my Vulcan heritage, doctor?

LtDougMcKnight: (Sure, if it doesn;t offend someone's cultural values.)

WillFMarlowe: ::nods::

Lt TKirr: <<You're not serious, Markus>>

MajorAZinthys: That is certainly one reassurance.

LtJGAaron Markus: <<?>>

Kiley Airell: ((Yes, he is TKirr))

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::walks into sick bay amd looks around::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::looks up from her invetory:: uhh yeah sure, whats on your mind?

Lt TKirr: <<Oh nothing. 9.9>>

VAdm Blackthorne: I wouldn't be doing this if I thought we'd end up decorating their fingers afterwards.

Kiley Airell: ::softly:: just wanted to say that I asked for Dr. Marlowe only because I think it would be Easier for Aaron to talk to a guy.

8:10 PM

ElRiov trIdrys: :::sips at tea and prepares to upload report:::

Lt TKirr: <<Just stay awaay from me, lol>>

LtJGAaron Markus: You are aware of their ::hesitates:: mating habits?

MajorAZinthys: <<Why is it that, every now and then, every Vulcan- pure, cold, logical Vulcans- becomes a 15-year old guy?>>

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::nods and smiles:: he's having one of those problems huh? ::in a low low voice::

MajorAZinthys: Very well.

MajorAZinthys: What is the plan once we penetrate their space?

VAdm Blackthorne: Proceed directly to their homeworld and let our passenger do her diplomacy.

WillFMarlowe: You mean Pon Farr? <<Excuse the spelling--I've seen an episode of M*A*S*H far more recently than I've seen Amok Time>>

LtJGAaron Markus: ::nods::

Kiley Airell: ::nods:: I just didn't want you taking it wrong

VAdm Blackthorne: When we contact their ships, we will hail them and let her talk.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Enters his quarters, and plops down in his nearest chair, smiling for the first time today as Hobbes hops up in his lap and starts head butting his face::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::waits near the door::

WillFMarlowe: I'm familiar with it.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::nods:: nope, i understand, besides, i'm not near as experienced as will is

LtJGNicoleWeis: hes a great doctor

MajorAZinthys: Now, I've been known to take risks. Sometimes crazy risks, but bringing a half-breed to talk to a hostile enemy who has shown no sign of wanting peace- that's risky.

Kiley Airell: It has nothing to do with experience. ::smiles:: From what I hear you're a very good doc as well.

LtDougMcKnight: Alright little guy, if we run into trouble, I want you at your most spineless, you hear me? You make for those ventilation shafts like Shannon was brining her little bastard kids.

VAdm Blackthorne: We have the upper hand now, militarily. They know that.

WillFMarlowe: One moment. ::looks up:: Dr. Weis? Dr. Idrys? Will one of you attend to Lieutenant Ellis?

LtJGAaron Markus: Are there any current medications to help control it....

LtDougMcKnight: (bringing)

VAdm Blackthorne: 22 was a resounding victory.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::laughs at that:: all i've done on this ship so far is fry people and watch them die ::shadow passes face befroe she smiels again::

Kiley Airell: LOL . . . Sounds like me.

WillFMarlowe: ::looks back to Markus:: Control it?

MajorAZinthys: But we don't know what they have in the way of reserves. That could have been a scout group for all we know.

VAdm Blackthorne: For them, right now, it's peace or death.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::laughs with her::

VAdm Blackthorne: Granted.

Kiley Airell: Anyways, I will let you get back to work.

LtDougMcKnight: Now scoot. I'm about to commit grave offenses against your ears.

VAdm Blackthorne: But that communication from the last ship alive at 22 leads me to believe otherwise.

WillFMarlowe: I would have thought . . . ::glances meaningfully at Airell:: Is there some kind of problem?

ElRiov trIdrys: :::walks over to Marlowe:::: Yes of course ...

LtDougMcKnight: ::Shoves Hobbes off his lap, and reaches for a banjo::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::looks at the inventory with a sigh:: yeah, i guess i should be working

Kiley Airell: ::Walks back to Marlowe and Aaron::

MajorAZinthys: Alright, Admiral. I still think this is nuts, but I agree with you on one thing. We need to talk to these... things.

ElRiov trIdrys: ::notices Ellis:: This way please.

8:15 PM

ElRiov trIdrys: ::indicates biobed::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods:: We just beat the hell out of them. The honorable thing to do is offer peace before they try to get back up.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::noticed ellis right as idrys did and lets him take care of her

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::

LtDougMcKnight: Computer, call up the finger placement diagram.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::is having troubles concentrating enough to explain to the doc::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::looks at the bio bed:: Um. No, Doctor I'm not here for that.. I wanted some help with something

VAdm Blackthorne: And Ms. Crystals' timing was impeccable.

MajorAZinthys: And remind everybody that the Federation is a bunch of peace-loving people.

ElRiov trIdrys: Oh well ... in that case how may I be of assistance? ::puts hands in pockets::

MajorAZinthys: Ms. Crystal? Is that her name?

LtDougMcKnight: ::Resumes practicing a basic string pattern, and winces as the cat runs into the next room at the noise:: Your support is touching.

VAdm Blackthorne: That aren't afraid to defend themselves.

WillFMarlowe: Take a deep breath, Mr. Markus. I can help you, but you must tell me what's going on.

Kiley Airell: ::holds Aaron's hand again::

VAdm Blackthorne: Her name is Amethyst Crystals.

LtDougMcKnight: I need a hobby, she says...screw you, Ellis.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::notices Kiley's presence and takes her hand::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::offers the padd:: I was trying to make heads or tails of our guests.... birth

VAdm Blackthorne: She was apparently formed by the crystals' regenerative properties, but the presence of human/other remains in the area created a hybrid.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (you wish McKinght, lol)

VAdm Blackthorne: A perfect representative of peace.

LtJGAaron Markus: I'm in Pon Farr, doctor and I need to know if medication can help to alleviate the mental strain and calm me.

ElRiov trIdrys: :::looks at it::: Hmmmmmmmmmmm yes this is quite ... yes. ::sighs a moment then looks over data::

MajorAZinthys: I don't want to know. I just want her to not grow crystals on this ship.

MajorAZinthys: Which, I'm assuming, she's not doing?

ElRiov trIdrys: Hybrid species ...

LtDougMcKnight: ::Settles down and continues to practice the pattern, actually finding himself calming down as his fingers program the pattern into muscle memory.:: And some pointy eared saps waste their time meditating.

ElRiov trIdrys: Didn't she say anything about the matter herself?

VAdm Blackthorne: No. She seems genuine. But make sure she stays that way.

MajorAZinthys: ::Smiles... finally:: Glad to oblige.

WillFMarlowe has left this chat.

Lt TKirr: ::runs through a damage report, keeping on eye on Bridge functions::

WillFMarlowe has joined this chat.

Kiley Airell: ((WB))

LtJGAaron Markus: <<WB>>

WillFMarlowe: <<Sorry.>>

LtJGNicoleWeis: ((YAY!! WILL!!))

ElRiov trIdrys: (( ::staples doors shut::: ))

WillFMarlowe: <<If you said anything after my last message, you'll have to repeat it. Damn AIM.>>

MajorAZinthys: I believe I've vented everything.

8:20 PM

Lt TKirr: <<Oh you know, just pon farr stuff>>

VAdm Blackthorne: Satisfied with the situation then?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: She said she was made from the dead of the battle at 16

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::looks at the clock and realizes that she is off duty::

MajorAZinthys: No. But I'll deal.

LtJGAaron Markus: <<REPEAT>>I'm in Pon Farr, doctor and I need to know if medication can help to alleviate the mental strain and calm me.

ElRiov trIdrys: From ... from the dead of the battle?

VAdm Blackthorne: ((Newer Jersey actually, not 16))

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::gets up and moves to head outta sick bay::

VAdm Blackthorne: Fair enough.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: I scaned the area of her 'birth' but I can't make sense of the cra.. err.. scans..

MajorAZinthys: I'd much rather be at home with... ::swallows:: We'll get her there.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (that's what I meant.. NJ)

VAdm Blackthorne: ::opens his humidor and hands Z a cigar, then takes one for himself::

ElRiov trIdrys: This is a puzzle.

VAdm Blackthorne: Aye, we will, and Atlantis will hold together.

MajorAZinthys: ::Takes it:: You are too kind.

MajorAZinthys: ::Sits::

WillFMarlowe: I believe I have a limited supply of hormone suppressants and mild sedatives, but you would certainly not be in any condition to fly the ship after I give you the latter.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: I find her method of creation a hard one to chew

VAdm Blackthorne: ::lights his and passes the lighter::

MajorAZinthys: Don't generals usually do this after victory has been acheived?

MajorAZinthys: ::Takes, lights, passes back::

ElRiov trIdrys: So do I, not to mention swallowing.

LtJGAaron Markus: I'm in no condition to fly it NOW either...

VAdm Blackthorne: I figure that if victory doesn't come, then I would have wasted the cigar by not smoking it.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: So you think you can lean me a hand?

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::walks down the hall towards the tl::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::looks at Kiley, noticing he's been focusing on her mentally::

ElRiov trIdrys: Oh of course. ::turns to Marlowe:: If you'll excuse me I'll be in Science investigating the circumstances of our guest's birth.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::leans back in his chair and takes a long slow series of puffs::

Kiley Airell: ::mentally tries to provide some semblence of control::

WillFMarlowe: What I don't understand is why--::nods to Idrys::--you can't resolve this naturally. ::looks at Airell, then at Markus:: Why don't you mate as soon as possible?

8:25 PM

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: :;walking with Idtys:: How's T'Nal?

LtDougMcKnight: ::Laments that most times he's called to use his hands, they're bunched up into fists. The fingers lose out on nimbleness::

ElRiov trIdrys: All right then, lead on. Oh T'Nal, yes, while we were on leave she went into labor. We now have a son named S'NacLuv.

LtDougMcKnight: Eh, this thing'll make a hell of a decoration anyway.

ElRiov trIdrys: She won't be sneezing for a while ... not if I can help it.

Kiley Airell: We've been on two Dates Doctor.

MajorAZinthys: So is there anything else I should know about?

LtJGAaron Markus: ::feels Kiley's calmness, then looks at Marlowe:: I....we.....aren't really involved.

WillFMarlowe: Ah. Pardon me.

VAdm Blackthorne: You definitely need to meet her. She certainly has the charisma of a diplomat.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: She had the baby? ::smiles: Congrats!

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: I hope labor wasn't to bad

MajorAZinthys: Perhaps I'll give her a security escort sometimes.

WillFMarlowe: In that case, I can give you the hormone suppressants now and give you a mild sedative once you're off duty.

MajorAZinthys: <<sometime*>>

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::walks into the tl and just kinda chooses a deck without thinking::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::is confused about the whole thing, thinking:: 'why haven't we?'

LtJGAaron Markus has left this chat.

LtJGAaron Markus has joined this chat.

Kiley Airell: ((WB))

LtJGAaron Markus: <<Damn escape key...>>

Kiley Airell: ((LOL))

ElRiov trIdrys: ::smiles:: Thanks. No, labor was as painless as possible. However I almost suffered a partial loss of hearing as a result.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::Chuckles::

VAdm Blackthorne: So how was your time away?

MajorAZinthys: Unfortunately unproductive

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::laughs:: You guys were lucky.. Noah was born out in the middle of no where.. The doc barly met up with the ship.. If she hadn't McKnight was the only medic onboard

LtJGAaron Markus: ::waits patiently for the doc::

WillFMarlowe: ::walks over to a supply locker and slides a vial into a hypo, then returns to Markus and Airell:: Come back when you have eight hours to spare. I'll give you something stronger then. ::presses the hypo to Markus' neck::

MajorAZinthys: ::focuses on the cigar::

LtDougMcKnight: (McKnight would have done fine. He just woulda bitched to no end about it.)

8:30 PM

WillFMarlowe: ::the instrument hisses shortly as the hormone suppressants are released into Markus' bloodstream::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods and puffs:

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::opens the lab door and walks in:: Watch out for the hole

LtJGAaron Markus: ::begins to feel the suppressant take effect almost immediately::

ElRiov trIdrys: ::follows in:: All right.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Puts the banjo down for now and winces as he looks at the imprint on the index and ring fingers of his left hand from holding the strings in their proper position:: C'mon calluses.

WillFMarlowe: That should last for at least twelve hours. Let me know when it starts to wear off.

MajorAZinthys: When will we be there?

LtJGAaron Markus: Can I return to duty or what?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (::loses it over the idea of McKinght and his banjo:: )

LtDougMcKnight: ::Gets up and crosses over to the replicator:: Bourbon. Make it a double, and lemme think it's been sitting around for a decade or two.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::walks around the ship aimlessly::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::takes a deep breath and begins to relax::

LtDougMcKnight: (Just wait until he can play the Deliverance tune.)

VAdm Blackthorne: I am not sure how far beyond the anomaly their world is.

WillFMarlowe: Oh, of course. If you like, I can speak to the Admiral about returning you to Vulcan as soon as possible.

MajorAZinthys: fun

LtJGAaron Markus: I don't think that will be necessary...Besides there's noone there for me anyways.

VAdm Blackthorne: But, we'll not be stressing our engines until we need them. A leisurely warp five will do.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::points to the computer:: So where do we start, Doc?

WillFMarlowe: But no, I see no reason why you can't return to your post . . . if the ship's counselor feels that your mental state is sufficiently clear and stable.

WillFMarlowe: ::arches a brow at Airell::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Takes a sip, and winces appreciatively:: Oh, that's some good burning. Thank God for Kentucky.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::nods to the doc::

MajorAZinthys: sounds like a plan

Kiley Airell: ::nods:: I have no problem with him returning to duty

ElRiov trIdrys: ::taps at chin:: Hmm well show me exactly where you started.

ElRiov trIdrys: Maybe if you walk me through this I can make sense out of it ... somehow

WillFMarlowe: ::turns back to Markus:: Then you're free to go.

8:35 PM

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: ::opens her scan files:: With as much as the sensors could grab while we were there

LtJGAaron Markus: Thank you, doc. ::looks at Kiley and slides off the biobed:: Shall we go?

VAdm Blackthorne: In the meantime, perhaps we can get our ship working a little better.

Kiley Airell: ::nods:: Yeah

WillFMarlowe: ::nods and walks away:: +Idrys+ Dr. Idrys, this is Marlowe. Report, please.

MajorAZinthys: Come to think of it, I haven't heard a peep out of engineering the whole time.

VAdm Blackthorne: They're working their asses off.

VAdm Blackthorne: But the report from Mr. Drake is fairly grim.

MajorAZinthys: ::nods::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::walks out and heads for TL:: I think I need to stop by my quarters first...::pulls on wet collar::

VAdm Blackthorne: We're definitely going to need spacedock time after this.

ElRiov trIdrys: +Marlowe+ Idrys here Sir. Ellis and I are going over the data in the Science lab about the hybrid being's origin. Just got here and am just starting. I'll keep you apprised Sir.

MajorAZinthys: no doubt

Kiley Airell: I will see you on the Bridge then.

WillFMarlowe: +Idrys+ Do you have all the information you need?

VAdm Blackthorne: She's taken a beating and held together, though. ::chuckles:;

LtJGAaron Markus: Kiley....I.....

Kiley Airell: Yes?

MajorAZinthys: As she always does

LtJGAaron Markus: I'm sorry if you were embarassed.

ElRiov trIdrys: +Marlowe+ Hopefully yes. I'm here to ascertain partly if that is the case or if more is needed.

Kiley Airell: Don't be Aaron. I'm glad the medication is helping.

LtJGAaron Markus: I'm just a little worried that, at some point, it might not...

Kiley Airell: we'll cross that bridge when we get there.

ElRiov trIdrys: :::begins looking over files:::

LtDougMcKnight: ::Sits back down in his chair and taps his comm badge:: +Marlowe+ McKnight to sickbay.

8:40 PM

ElRiov trIdrys: ::q:: "Begin at the beginning, go all the way to the end, then stop."

LtJGAaron Markus: ::smiles and nods:: I'll see you on the bridge then...and...thanks for coming with me. It helped.

WillFMarlowe: +Idrys+ I understand. Keep me informed. Marlowe out.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: (

Kiley Airell: You're welcome.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::contemplates the cigar::

Kiley Airell: ::heads to the bridge::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::heads in the opposite direction::

WillFMarlowe: ::opens his mouth, about to say something, but neither Weis nor Nelson seem to be in sickbay at the moment::

Kiley Airell: ::enters the TL:: Bridge!

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::is still walking aimlessly around the ship, getting lost::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::enters a TL and heads for his quarters::

WillFMarlowe: +Nelson+ Nelson, this is Doctor Marlowe. Why are you--

WillFMarlowe: Nelson> +Marlowe+ --My shift ended half an hour ago.

Kiley Airell: ::exits the TL and walks back to her chair::

ElRiov trIdrys: ::q while going over the files:: Mm hmm ... mm hmmm ... hmmmm ...

LtDougMcKnight: ::Gets the busy signal, and decides he's not getting so old yet he has any excuse not to drag his ass down to sickbay himself::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::looks at something, frowns:::

WillFMarlowe: ::starts to answer Nelson when McKnight's comm bleeps through:: +McKnight+ Sickbay here.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: What do you see?

LtJGAaron Markus: ::enters his quarters, strips his sweat soaked uniform and grabs a clean one from the closet, tossing it on the bed and heading for the sonic shower:: Sonic shower on...level 3 please.

ElRiov trIdrys: Kind of like you said. Somehow it just doesn't all add up like the being formed from the dead.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Having finished the bourbon, was just opening up the grate to the ventilation shaft before heading out:: +Marlowe+ Oh, hey Doc. Noticed the busy signal, sorry to bother you.

Lt TKirr: ::holding the bridge, wondering what Blackthorne and Zinthys are occupying themselves with::

Kiley Airell: ::smiles to TKirr:: How are you?

8:45 PM

Lt TKirr: ::glances at Kiley:: I am fine.

LtDougMcKnight: +Marlowe+ I was just wondering when you might have a minute to discuss our guest. I'm assuming she must have passed your way, just to make sure there was no biohazard danger.

ElRiov trIdrys: :::sits back::: Life from death ... how is that possible? ::to noip::

WillFMarlowe: +McKnight+ The fault is not yours, Lieutenant. Is there something I can do for you?

MajorAZinthys: ::Looks at the butt of the cigar:: You got a tray for this, or should I throw it in the recycler?

WillFMarlowe: <<Oops, scratch that last.>>

LtDougMcKnight: (Heh, already done.)

VAdm Blackthorne: Recycler is fine.

Kiley Airell: That's good

LtJGAaron Markus: ::finishes the sonic shower and puts on the clean uniform stopping for a moment to glance out the window at the view::

MajorAZinthys: ::Walks over and throws it in there::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis: That's what I was asking you

VAdm Blackthorne: ::Tosses his in as well::

WillFMarlowe: +McKnight+ One would think. But, for whatever reason, our guest never made it here.

Kiley Airell: Where's the Admiral?

VAdm Blackthorne: ::walks back out on to the bridge:

Lt TKirr: ::taps away:: In his Ready Room with Major Zinthys.

MajorAZinthys: I think we've hid for long enough.

Lt TKirr: ::looks up::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::takes a deep cleansing breath and strides out to the TL:: Bridge.

LtDougMcKnight: ::Frowns:: +Marlowe+ Well, isn't that special.

Kiley Airell: Fun

VAdm Blackthorne: Report, Mr. T'Kirr.

ElRiov trIdrys: I know. And to be honest I don't have the answer. Not yet. But as she's alive there must be some answer, however elusive.

WillFMarlowe: +McKnight+ But yes, it's time we looked further into the matter. Dr. Idrys and Lieutenant Ellis are looking over the data now. I was about to check in on them personally. Care to join me?

Lt TKirr: We are presently still on course, nothing of interest to note.

MajorAZinthys: ::Walks out:

MajorAZinthys: ::Takes his station::

VAdm Blackthorne: Glad to hear it.

VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM

VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SI

VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM

Lt TKirr: ::pauses::

Kiley Airell: ::paused::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::Paused::

VAdm Blackthorne: jg

MajorAZinthys: I guess the jig is up.

VAdm Blackthorne: Dr. William Marlowe, front and center.

WillFMarlowe: ::steps forward::

8:50 PM

VAdm Blackthorne: Doctor, you're accused of the following crimes.

VAdm Blackthorne: Excellent simming, character development, and log-writing... compounded by bringing home two Muse Awards for Atlantis!

VAdm Blackthorne: How do you plea?

WillFMarlowe: ::hangs his head as his shoulders slump forward::

VAdm Blackthorne: Speak!

WillFMarlowe: On the advice of my attorney, I am exercising my right to avoid self-incrimination.

VAdm Blackthorne: You have no rights, and I had your attorney defenestrated.

LtJGNicoleWeis: (w) does that mean he pleades the 5th?

VAdm Blackthorne: Now speak!

MajorAZinthys: ::sniggers::

ElRiov trIdrys: ( I adore defenestrations don't you??  )

Lt TKirr: <<::looks up "defenestrated" and laughs on the floor::>>

WillFMarlowe: I . . . I was framed!

VAdm Blackthorne: ::wonders how many hits is getting now::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ((what does it mean?))

LtDougMcKnight: (Thrown out the window.)

Lt TKirr: <<I use m-w thank you.

VAdm Blackthorne: Guilty it is then!

VAdm Blackthorne: Major, bring me The Box!

VAdm Blackthorne: Punishment will be swift and harsh!

LtJGNicoleWeis: ohh no, not the box ::gasps::

MajorAZinthys: Already got it, sir.

MajorAZinthys: ::Hands him The Box::

ElRiov trIdrys: (( ::already read Arthur C Clarke's short story The Defenestration of Ermitrude Inch, funny as hell:: ))

VAdm Blackthorne: And the beatings will continue until morale improves::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::takes The Box::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::takes out a razor sharp pip::

8:55 PM

VAdm Blackthorne: By the power vested in me by some damned fool, I hereby promote you to the rank of Lieutenant on the USS Atlantis. May Bob have mercy on your bowl! ::pips him, drawing blood::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::Applauds::

Kiley Airell: wooohooo

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::claps::

WillFMarlowe: ::flinches as the pip-point gleams savagely on its way into his throat::

Kiley Airell: Congrats!

ElRiov trIdrys: :::applauds:::

Lt TKirr: ::applauds::

LtJGNicoleWeis: party time in sick bay now

LtJGNicoleWeis: celebrate!!!!

VAdm Blackthorne: Congrats, Doc. ::smiles::

WillFMarlowe: Sickbay--where we keep all the prescription drugs.
