LtDougMcKnight:         Sure they do.

LtJGNicoleWeis:   yeah they do

Lt  jg  D  Ellis:     that are made of something other then mess

ElRiov trIdrys:     I've slept in tents before. Hell I've slept in the open

desert with just a sleeping bag and only a rock for a pillow back in 1998.

LtDougMcKnight:         They're just a millimeter thick, and made of plastic.

LtJGNicoleWeis:   now thats cool eric

LtDougMcKnight:         Yeah, cool.

LtDougMcKnight:         If by cool, we take that to mean idiotic.

ElRiov trIdrys:     yes and by 1999 that same desert area was made into a

virtual "park"

Lt  jg  D  Ellis:     what desert?

LtJGNicoleWeis:   come on, sleeping in the desert would be soo cool

ElRiov trIdrys:     over in Saudi Arabia.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis:     ahh

LtJGNicoleWeis:   why were you in saudi arabia?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis:     I was gonna say, you try sleeping out in the open where I

came from and you'd end up fresh meat kibble

OnlineHost:        AmythystCrystals has entered the room.

inter-galactic space.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis:     (I lived in Paradise Valley which is just out side Phoenix

till I was 16 then we moved here)

MajorAZinthys:   The Atlantis is currently en route to... wherever we're being

led by the three crystal ships flanking us.

MajorAZinthys:   Questions? Comments? Derisive comments about the Admiral

since he won't find out about them until he reads the chatlog?

LtDougMcKnight:         He's gonna get the lot of us killed cuz intergalactic peace

couldn;t wait a week.

LtDougMcKnight:         Okay, done.

AmythystCrystals:       Did he get that embarrasing rash cleared up, yet?

LtJGNicoleWeis:   nope, it's worse then we thought at first

MajorAZinthys:   Oh, and, for the record, he will be here tonight.

about anything about... that.

about scanning::

relationship? You... read it from my mind?

Lt TKirr:      ::is thankful she is not open::

AmythystCrystals:       Well....

AmythystCrystals:       From your mind.... and from your heart.

AmythystCrystals:       I know, I know... it sounds as corny as Kansas in August.

in conversation, or did you lift that from somebody's mind, as well?

LtJGAaron Markus:       Nurse Emdee>Do you think we can wake him yet?  Or

should we just run a few more tests?

AmythystCrystals:       ::smiles::  As it will come as not big surprise to you, I

don't converse with many people onboard.

ElRiov trIdrys:     I'd say a few more tests for the time being.

LtJGAaron Markus:       ((LOL))

MajorAZinthys:   Do you enjoy intruding on other's thoughts?

is it one of those things that you just do?

Lt  jg  D  Ellis:     (lol of course with that much time Dakota would have to go

home to see her mother so maybe months woudn't be so good after all. lol)

MajorAZinthys:   I see your point, but.... ::stops, lost in thought::

to be able to control your ability to read people's thoughts. Correct?

don't want anywhere near Earth?)

out an airlock by mistake

emotions from that far away?

ElRiov trIdrys:     :::runs a nervous hand through hair::: I just wonder what

I'm forgetting.

AmythystCrystals:       And, the battle was rather fierce.

VAdm Blackthorne:      But *I* think the ship can take it.

VAdm Blackthorne:      ::smiles:: I have a lot of confidence in the old girl.

thing...Maybe you should check the database for anything like this.

LtDougMcKnight:         Yeah...enough to count the number of people he's put on

report too.

LtDougMcKnight:         He was working under the hood on some doohickey.  The

chatter in Ten Forward is that he dropped his own plasma torch.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis:     ::shakes her head:: Na he uses his toes for that as well

AmythystCrystals:       Well, there is the resonance in the dilithium chamber....

it's small and almost undetectable now, but it will give you problems later

on down the line.

the crap out of our enemies, and we're in shambles.  One system breaking

after's a game of musical chairs.

VAdm Blackthorne:      ::nods:: I understand.

to be scared of us

Lt TKirr:      ::tries not to listen to the idle chatter::

AmythystCrystals:       ::blinks::

LtJGAaron Markus:       Nurse Emdee>::runs another scan on the cerebrial

cortex:: This time it looks much better.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis:     I thought that was Kirk? ... No wait that was drop your


AmythystCrystals:       Personally?

VAdm Blackthorne:      Yes. Things can't have been easy for you.

VAdm Blackthorne:      How are you handling yourself?

ElRiov trIdrys:     ::nods:: I guess we can proceed with awakening him now.

LtDougMcKnight:         Or lift it.  The guy screwed shape shifting slugs.  He

wasn't overly particular.

ElRiov trIdrys:     Ready?

LtJGAaron Markus:       Nurse Emdee>Yes, doctor.  ::hands him a hypospray with

wake-up juice::

LtDougMcKnight:         Anyway, I need to get down to security.  Nothing's happening

there yet, hopefully nothing will, but the men have a way of getting jumpy.

AmythystCrystals:       Oh.... well.... I believe I'm well.  No fractures, no

emotional overlaods...

Lt  jg  D  Ellis:     ::checks her scans:: again good thing we don't use money

could you imageine the child surpport bills

AmythystCrystals:       My room is comfortable, and I can access all kinds of

reading matter.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis:     ::nods:: And we'll keep an eye on the... ::looks at the

viewer:: dark

ElRiov trIdrys:     :::takes hypo, applies it::: All right ... any time now.

VAdm Blackthorne:      But what are your thoughts and emotions on all of this?

You've only been alive for ... what, a week now? This must be all very...

well, I wouldn't know how to describe it.

AmythystCrystals:       ::laughs lightly, tinkling in the RR::

LtDougMcKnight:         Right, lemme know if anything changes.

LtJGAaron Markus:       ::slowly begins to regain consciousness:: ohhh...where am

I?  ::looks around:: Doc? Is that you? ::sight begins to clear up::

AmythystCrystals:   ;-)

MajorAZinthys:   <<lol>>

LtDougMcKnight:         Oh, and as long as I'm here, you need to cut back on the

damned Swedish Fish.

Lt TKirr:      ::glances at the RR door::

VAdm Blackthorne:      ((tinkling is only allowed in the latrine))

LtJGAaron Markus:       What happened?

AmythystCrystals:       Being alive is a wondrous experience.  I can't believe

that so many of your people stay isolated on purpose.

ElRiov trIdrys:     It's OK Lieutenant. You collapsed in the Holodeck.

LtJGAaron Markus:       I did....damn.  Must've been some program...

VAdm Blackthorne:      ::smiles:: That's good to hear. It must be wonderful to

see everything you experience for the first time.

ElRiov trIdrys:     Just lie still. :::scans with medical tricorder:::

ElRiov trIdrys:     ::nods:: All readings stable.

LtJGAaron Markus:       Nurse Emdee>I believe you were meditating, were you


Lt  jg  D  Ellis:     ::looks at the RR too:: What do you think's going on in

there, Lt?

AmythystCrystals:       There is so much I want to see and experience before....

well, before I leave the Atlantis.

LtJGAaron Markus:       Oh yeah...

Lt TKirr:      ::glances at Ellis:: It is not my place to speculate.

VAdm Blackthorne:      Well, you're welcome to stay, unless you have to part ways

with us at their homeworld.

Lt  jg  D  Ellis:     but you can't help but wonder

AmythystCrystals:       Well... of course I do.

AmythystCrystals:       It's the only way.

VAdm Blackthorne:      That's disappointing. I would have liked to see your

reaction to Earth.

AmythystCrystals:       But I am having a wonderful time on your ship.  Do you

think I could be given access to the holodecks?

LtJGAaron Markus:       Guess I meditated a little too hard....So am I fit for

duty yet, Doc?  Or should I come back in a little while first?

VAdm Blackthorne:      Of course! I could show you Earth in there.

AmythystCrystals:       It is disappointing... in many ways, Ian.. in many ways.

ElRiov trIdrys:     I'd say you're all set to go.

AmythystCrystals:       I would like to see Earth.  I have a lot of images in my

memory, but seeing it for myself would be better.

VAdm Blackthorne:      We have a saying on Earth. C'est la vie; "It is life." If

that is what you must do for peace, and is your choice, then that is what you

must do.

AmythystCrystals:       Interesting phrase.

AmythystCrystals:       Does it matter how you make the choice?

VAdm Blackthorne:      ::looks at her for a long moment:: I don't think so.

LtJGAaron Markus:       Thank you...I'll see you later.  Hopefully not until my

next physical though...::chuckles::

LtDougMcKnight:         Right then.

LtDougMcKnight:         ::Steps back onto the turbolift::  Level 7.

AmythystCrystals:       Oh.

VAdm Blackthorne:      Life is a series of choices, you'll find out.

VAdm Blackthorne:      Or perhaps you already have.

AmythystCrystals:       As is death.

LtJGAaron Markus:       ::heads out of sickbay and onto the TL:: Bri... ::notices

he needs a uniform change:: Deck 10.

VAdm Blackthorne:      Perhaps.

ElRiov trIdrys:     :::sighs, heads over to replicator and gets tea ... sips at


LtJGAaron Markus:       Nurse Emdee>Good job on finding that medicine for him,


ElRiov trIdrys:     Thank you. You've done a good job yourself.

LtJGAaron Markus:       ::gets of the TL and into his quarters, changes and grabs

a quick drink of water from the replicator.::

Lt TKirr:      ::scans yet again, finding nothing to note, and watches repairs::

LtJGAaron Markus:       Nurse Emdee>Thank you...::begins putting away equipment

and cleaning off the biobed::

Lt  jg  D  Ellis:     ::playing mrs pac man::

Lt TKirr:      <<Some things never go out of style, I guess>>

Lt  jg  D  Ellis:     (lol)

VAdm Blackthorne:      Such weighty matters aside, you'll have access to the

holodeck immediately.

LtJGAaron Markus:       ((::looks at Z's blue swaid shoes:: obviously not))

LtDougMcKnight:         ::Gets out of the turbolift, and heads on in to security::

MajorAZinthys:   <<What's a "swaid"?>>>

Lt TKirr:      <<You know he meant 'suede'>>

MajorAZinthys:   <<And?>>

LtJGAaron Markus:       ((Yeah, that...))

LtDougMcKnight:         (Ha ha, finally, a fabric I know more about than Jason!)

LtJGAaron Markus:       ((lol))

VAdm Blackthorne:      PAUSE SIM

VAdm Blackthorne:      PAUSE SIM

LtDougMcKnight:         (In terms of spelling anyway.  You don't know nice until

you've seen a suede jacket.)

VAdm Blackthorne:      PAUSE SIM

Lt TKirr:      ::pauses::

MajorAZinthys:   ::blows into whistle::

LtJGAaron Markus:       ::paused::

ElRiov trIdrys:     ::raises brow:: You are ill Sir?

VAdm Blackthorne:      Your crimes are too heinous to even bear.

LtJGAaron Markus:       ::gets out his phaser::

VAdm Blackthorne:      ::bangs gavel on desk:: GUILTY! GUILTY!

LtJGAaron Markus:       ::wonders where the desk came from::

VAdm Blackthorne:      Major! GETEN ZE JAR!

Lt  jg  D  Ellis:     ::whispers:: Who gave him a gavel?

Lt TKirr:      ::whispers back:: K-Mart.

VAdm Blackthorne:      SILENCE!'

MajorAZinthys:   "Geten"?

VAdm Blackthorne:      ZE ACCUSED VILL NOT SPEAK!

MajorAZinthys:   What the hell is that?

MajorAZinthys:   Is that a type of mushroom?

VAdm Blackthorne:      Jar. Now.

MajorAZinthys:   Oh. Right.

LtDougMcKnight:         ::Thinks in horror::  We're working for a Hun!

MajorAZinthys:   ::Calmly walks to the kitchen::

MajorAZinthys:   ::Rummages around under the kitchen sink::

MajorAZinthys:   ::Moves some liquid in a box::

MajorAZinthys:   ::Pulls out a clear, unmarked Jar::

MajorAZinthys:   ::Walks back::

MajorAZinthys:   ::holds it out::

Chaplin moustache?
