VAdm Blackthorne: ::on the bridge::

VAdm Blackthorne: Mr. Markus, ETA to Earth?

Kiley Airell: ::On the bridge::

MajorAZinthys: ::Standing behind Tactical::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::in Sickbay, doing inventory:::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::sitting at H/Ops:: 5 minutes. Here comes our escort now...::looks at the main viewer::

MajorAZinthys: ::Mouths: escort?::

VAdm Blackthorne: Drop from warp.

SarinaJaral: :::coming into Sickbay:::

LtJGAaron Markus: I guess they think we need a tow or something... Aye, sir. ::drops to impulse::

CaptDougMcKnight: ::In his quarters, already busily stuffing his duffel bag, for once content to leave this ship in someone else's capable hands::

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Even Drake's::

SarinaJaral: :::comes up to Idrys::: ARe you still doing that? I thought you'd be getting ready to go off ship/

VAdm Blackthorne: Vector for spacedoors.

MajorAZinthys: <<Sorry. Saw "Drake" and "spacedoors" and got real excited for a minute>>

LtJGAaron Markus: Yes sir. ::points the ship toward spacedock and slows for entry.::

Kiley Airell: ((LOL))

CaptDougMcKnight: (Hahaha)

7:45 PM

ElRiov trIdrys: Well ... just finishing up here. ::pauses, mops brow:: It always seems whenever I start this stuff it never gets done.

VAdm Blackthorne: One quarter impulse to doors.

ElRiov trIdrys: Odd isn't it?

LtJGNicoleWeis has joined this chat.

Kiley Airell: *relaxes in her chair*

Kiley Airell: ((wb Nici))

LtJGNicoleWeis: ((sorry for being late))

LtJGAaron Markus: Aye. One quarter impulse. ::hands expertly manuever the ship::

SarinaJaral: Well finish and go get your family. You deserve a break.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::is headed to sickbay, in her own little world singing and dancing to herself::

VAdm Blackthorne: Contact the Dockmaster for clearance.

ElRiov trIdrys: ::chuckles:: That I will. ::gets the last of the inventory done:: There.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::hits a couple of buttons:: Dockmaster...Atlantis requesting permission to dock.

VAdm Blackthorne: Dockmaster> ::rolls his eyes, knowing what's about to happen:: Granted.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::dances into sickbay at a dramatic part of the song and starts singing to the patients and everyone in there::

SarinaJaral: Good! ::smiles:::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::smiles slightly::

VAdm Blackthorne: Patient> ::throws up on Weis::

SarinaJaral: ::turns and looks at Weis:: You're in a good mood.

ElRiov trIdrys: Indeed ...

7:50 PM

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::smiles at the patient:: oh thats okay, this was an old uniform anyway

VAdm Blackthorne: Patient> ::groans and shits himself::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::turns to sarina and idrys:: I know, aren't I? is't the weirdest thing, i dont' know why i am, i just am ::shrugs, giggles and smiles::

ElRiov trIdrys: OK let's get this fellow taken care of. ::heads over to patient::

SarinaJaral: ::arches a brow, but smiles::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::eazes the ship in through the spacedoors at one quarter impulse and cuts the engines just as they pass, to float in under momentum::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::quietly to idrys:: whats wrong with him?

VAdm Blackthorne: Park us over there.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::points::

ElRiov trIdrys: ::looks at monitor over biobed:: I don't know ... looks like a slight case of the flu.

SarinaJaral: ::Glances at the monitors:: Looks that way.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::looks back and sees where the Admiral points to:: Aye, sir. ::steers the ship there::

MajorAZinthys: ::Smiles, glad to not be the one getting complained at by the dockmaster this time::

VAdm Blackthorne: Patient> ::barfs all over the place::

SarinaJaral: ::barely jumps back in time:::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ew, no fun, well, i'm going to go change right quick, don't want to be stinking up the whole sick bay ::smiles and dashes off to will's office to change::

LtJGAaron Markus: ((Poor sickbay))

VAdm Blackthorne: Engage mooring clamps.

ElRiov trIdrys: :::injects patient with 10 ccs of Industrial Strength Pepto Bismol:::

LtJGNicoleWeis: (( ::sniffles and wonders if she can bribe ian to stop the throw up:: ))

SarinaJaral: If you've got things under control and since I'm really not supposed to be on duty..I'm going to go see if I can figure out what I'm going to do with my leave.

ElRiov trIdrys: ( otherwise our leave is ruined )

LtJGAaron Markus: ::pulls up to the parking spot, comes to a full stop and engages the clamps::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::pokes head out of will's office:: are you guys on leave?

ElRiov trIdrys: OK go right on ...

VAdm Blackthorne: Transfer off internal power to Starbase control.

SarinaJaral: I thought the entire ship was?

ElRiov trIdrys: I will be once I have this patient taken care of.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::hears the clump sound of the clamps:: Transferring power to Starbase. ::hits a few more buttons:: Docking complete. Now under Starbase power.

7:55 PM

ElRiov trIdrys: ::checks monitors:::

VAdm Blackthorne: People on the Starbase> ::marvelling at the Atlantis's condition::

LtJGNicoleWeis: oh....guess i didn't get the memo...thats cool, enjoy working, i think i'll work this leave again ::smiles and finishes changing, coming out looking clean::

VAdm Blackthorne: Patient> ::falls asleep::

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Finishes packing his duffel for shore leave, and heads back to security, to oversee the transfer of the ship to Spacedock security personnel::

VAdm Blackthorne: Put me on shipwide.

ElRiov trIdrys: OK ... that takes care of that.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::nods::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::turns on the comm and nods at the Admiral::

ElRiov trIdrys: ::moves away to change out of dirty uniform::

LtJGNicoleWeis: go off and have fun guys ::smiles and waves to them:: i'll hold down the fort

Kiley Airell: ::looks over to the Admiral, almost lost in thought::

SarinaJaral: I kind of thought it was self-apparant since we're at Earth and the ship is going in for major repairs.

SarinaJaral: ::shrugs:::

VAdm Blackthorne: +Shipwide+ This is Admiral Blackthorne speaking. Atlantis will be undergoing a major repair and refit. Please transfer to temporary housing on Starbase One or Earth, as the ship will be mostly inaccessible during this time.

LtJGNicoleWeis: oh, well, yeah, umm...::tries to hide the fat that she wasn't paying much attention to what was happening on ship::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::gets into clean uniform in changing area:::

LtJGNicoleWeis: does that mean i can't stay on ship?

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::pouts for a moment then thinks of her brothers and smiles::

SarinaJaral: I thought we were supposed to clean out our quarters.

ElRiov trIdrys: +T'Nal+ Get your gear together ... you heard the Admiral.

VAdm Blackthorne: +Shipwide+ All crew quarters must also be emptied. Personnel will be available to assist in this process.

LtJGNicoleWeis: oh....::again tries to hide the fact that she hadn't been paying attention::

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > +Idrys+ Understood Hakkie, see you in a bit.

LtJGNicoleWeis: good thing i haven't really unpacked yet

MajorAZinthys: ::mutters:: great.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::realizes he doesn't have much to move out:: Cool.

VAdm Blackthorne: +Shipwide+ All non-engineering crew are hereby granted leave until further notice. Blackthorne out.

Kiley Airell: ::thinks the crew's really gonna be happy bout that::

MajorAZinthys: ::powers down tactical::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::smiles and shrugs:: guess today really is a good day

LtJGAaron Markus: ::mentally hears a YAY!!!!!!! from all the decks below::

SarinaJaral: And there's the official word. ::smiles::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::comes out of changing area in a new uniform::: Well at least it wasn't Medical that was excluded.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::stands and looks around::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::powers down helm:: Won't be usning this for a while.

LtJGNicoleWeis: eh, wouldn't have been so bad, i like working ::smiles again and starts to head out::

LtJGNicoleWeis: maybe i can help out at the local hospital during leave

ElRiov trIdrys: ::shakes head:: All work and no play .. oh well.

LtJGAaron Markus: *using

8:00 PM

SarinaJaral: I'm sure they'd be happy to have you. ::looks at Idrys:: Agreed.

ElRiov trIdrys: See you all around. ::exits SB and heads to quarters::

SarinaJaral: I'm going to head to my quarters and get the last of my stuff together/.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::hums a little ditty to herself:: see ya idrys

VAdm Blackthorne: ::looks fondly at the command chair::

SarinaJaral: ::exits and heads out::

LtJGNicoleWeis: okay, have fun on your leave ::waves to them and heads back to her quarters, singing and dancing again::

Kiley Airell: ::raises:: gonna miss it Admiral?

CaptDougMcKnight: ::In security, awaiting the arrival of Starbase security::

VAdm Blackthorne: Yes, Counselor.

ElRiov trIdrys: :::makes way to quarters, enters::: OK hon you ready to leave this bucket of bolts?

VAdm Blackthorne: She held together through a lot.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::stands up to leave:: I can put a seat warmer in it if you'd like, sir.

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > ::grins:: Any time Hakkie. ::looks at S'Nac:: Ready to come wiv Mommy and Daddy?

MajorAZinthys: ::Stands there looking sort of confused::

Kiley Airell: A lot more then most people would have thought possible.

VAdm Blackthorne: Indeed.

SarinaJaral: :::unsure of what she's going to do with her leave::

ElRiov trIdrys: S'Nac > ::looks up at T'Nal and Idrys:: Gaaa ...

ElRiov trIdrys: ::laughs:: I think he means yes. Come on.

Kiley Airell: I think I'm going to enjoy a little bit of R&R

ElRiov trIdrys: ::heads out with T'Nal and S'Nac::

VAdm Blackthorne: Actually, Mr. Markus, I hope they don't touch that chair.

LtJGAaron Markus: I think we all will.

VAdm Blackthorne: It's quite comfortable.

VAdm Blackthorne: Broken in, you might say.

MajorAZinthys: ::Suddenly walks over to the TL::

MajorAZinthys: Deck 8.

LtJGAaron Markus: I can put tape around it...

LtJGAaron Markus: Block it off.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods:: Yes, please do. Just in case.

VAdm Blackthorne: At least something will be the same.

Kiley Airell: ::chuckles::

LtJGAaron Markus: Sir, it's the most advanced ship in the fleet...why would they change ANYTHING?

VAdm Blackthorne: New designs are being implemented.

CaptDougMcKnight: Starbase security> ::Hails the bridge::

SarinaJaral: Not really enough time to go home. ::talking to herself::

8:05 PM

LtJGAaron Markus: ::shocked look:: Really? Already?

MajorAZinthys: ::Gets off the TL::

VAdm Blackthorne: She's only been in space for seven years, and already being refitted. That's an indicator of the times we live in.

MajorAZinthys: ::walks to his quarters::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::suddenly remembers her entire family is on another planet, for her cousins wedding::

VAdm Blackthorne: Answer that.

LtJGAaron Markus: Has it been that long?

LtJGNicoleWeis: crap ::stops in the middle of the corridor and just stands there for a moment::

LtJGAaron Markus: I didn't even realize....

VAdm Blackthorne: Seven years from launch to first refit is a very short time.

LtJGAaron Markus: Hmmm.

VAdm Blackthorne: Answer the comm, please.

LtJGAaron Markus: OH....sorry....::answers the comm:: Bridge here.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::stands there trying to think of where to go for leave::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::almost tripped while reaching for the comm button::

CaptDougMcKnight: Starbase security> +Atlantis+ Atlantis, this is Lieutenant Pendergast, starbase security. Requesting to come aboard with a standard security detachment.

SarinaJaral: I suppose I could take that tour of the Southwest I wanted to before. ::entering her quarters::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods to Markus::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::trails his hand along the arm of the chair::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::catches the nod from the Admiral:: +SB Sec+ Granted.

LtJGNicoleWeis: empty house

CaptDougMcKnight: SS> +Atlantis+ Acknowledged, Atlantis. Pendergast out.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::nods and begins walking towards her quarters again::

Kiley Airell: You'll be back Admiral

VAdm Blackthorne: It could be a while.

Kiley Airell: true enough . . . but you'll be back

LtJGAaron Markus: Is the refit gonna take long?

VAdm Blackthorne: Yes, it will.

8:10 PM

CaptDougMcKnight: Pendergast> ::Comes aboard with 13 other security guards, plus 2 more than he leaves at the airlock::

VAdm Blackthorne: Enjoy your leave. ::smiles at them::

LtJGAaron Markus: Do you know how long?

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::wonders what the rest of the crew are going to do::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::exits Atlantis with T'Nal and S'Nac onto starbase:::

SarinaJaral: ::tosses her toiletries into a bag and shuts it::: Doesn't sound like fun. Maybe I'll just find a hotel and...what?

VAdm Blackthorne: As this isn't a full refit, somewhere on the order of weeks.

SarinaJaral: Pick up a man? ::smiles:::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::eyes widen:: Oh my....

VAdm Blackthorne: Perhaps longer.

LtJGAaron Markus: I didn't realize refits took that long...didn't study too much engineering.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::walks into quarters and puts music on really really loud::

VAdm Blackthorne: A full refit takes six months, at least.

Kiley Airell: wow

VAdm Blackthorne: Luckily, we're not ready for that yet.

LtJGAaron Markus: Yeah.

SarinaJaral: Toy with one more like. ::grins:: Just for a bit.

VAdm Blackthorne: Usually 20 years in space will necessitate that.

LtJGAaron Markus: They'd end up reassigning us all by then.

Kiley Airell: don't think you could be take 6 months away Admiral

VAdm Blackthorne: ::shakes head:: Negative, they keep crews together during refits.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::to Airell:: Probably not. But I have other duties that go with my rank.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::sings at hte top of her lungs and forgets to start packing and ends up dancing and singing::

LtJGAaron Markus: 6 months of leave? I'd die from bordom.

ElRiov trIdrys: :::looks around::: Well, it may not be the Atlantis, hon, but somewhere around here is where we're going to be calling home for a while.

Kiley Airell: ::grins:: The joys of being an Admiral

MajorAZinthys: ::Packs his stuff up into a moderate-sized box and schleps off to Starbase 1::

LtJGAaron Markus: I'd hate to do your paperwork.

VAdm Blackthorne: Counselor, in T'Kirr's absence, please oversee the transfer of the Mustangs to the Starbase.

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > ::nods:: I just hope they get the repairs done soon.

Kiley Airell: Aye Sir.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::hears "Mustangs" and smiles::

8:15 PM

SarinaJaral: Maybe I should try and get home..the 29th will be the anniversary...::Unable to finish her thought, takes a deep breath and exhales slowly:::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::changes from uniform to normal clothes and continues singing and dancing and not packing up::

Kiley Airell: ((testing))

Kiley Airell: ((That's better))

VAdm Blackthorne: Find a good place to put those Mustangs, Counselor.

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Rises from his desk at seeing the arrival of unfamilar faces with gold uniforms and holstered phasers, and goes to meet their leader, extending his hand as he does so:: Captain Douglas McKnight, Atlantis security.

SarinaJaral: ::changes quickly and tosses her uniform into the last suitcase:: There, no more of that for a bit.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::calmly enters the TL, and turns to look back at the bridge before the doors close::

LtJGAaron Markus: Just don't forget where that is....

SarinaJaral: ::heads out of her quarters:::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::does teh tom cruise thing from risky business::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::checks into new digs with T'Nal and S'Nac, vegges out for a while:::

VAdm Blackthorne: Deck ten.

8:20 PM

CaptDougMcKnight: Pendergast> ::Takes the offered hand:: Lieutenant Arthur Pendergast, spacedock security. I'll be relieving you during your stay here.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::watches the Admiral leave then turns to Kiley:: So, do you have your leave planned?

VAdm Blackthorne: ::rides the TL a bit, then steps off::

MajorAZinthys: <<::dies::>>

SarinaJaral: ::enters a lift:: Deck Ten

Kiley Airell: ::smiles:: Not that much really. Got some work that I should catch up on. How about you?

VAdm Blackthorne: ::enters 10F::

SarinaJaral: ::exits the lift and walks into the lounge:::

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Grins:: I stand friggin relieved. I swear to God, you sailors must be a breed apart. I don't know how you stand all this time in space.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::drops onto the couch and giggles, wishing some of the girls had been around to sing with her::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::walks up to Jack Cahalan, the bartender, who has his usual gin and tonic at the ready::

LtJGAaron Markus: I'll probably be begging the refit crew to hurry up or I'll die of boredom...I got nothing.

VAdm Blackthorne: Thanks, Jack, you're a lifesaver.

VAdm Blackthorne: Tell me you're staying on after the refit.

VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> Aye sir, that I am.

SarinaJaral: ::takes a table by the viewport, her normal spot in any lounge and signals for a server:::

MajorAZinthys: ::Is shown to his new home for the next several weeks::

Kiley Airell: ::chuckles::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::puts on some good old soft music and hops in the shower::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::turns from the bar with the drink and walks to the windows::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::sees a nice view of the spacedock wall::

MajorAZinthys: ::Drops his box on the floor, not planning on spending much time here::

SarinaJaral: Brandy, please. ::to the server::

Kiley Airell: You have much to pack?

LtJGAaron Markus: One bag.

Kiley Airell: ::heads towards the TL::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::follows::

VAdm Blackthorne: Better than utter blackness. ::to himself::

SarinaJaral: ::glances around and sees a man standing nearby and notes the rank:::

Kiley Airell: Lucky you.

SarinaJaral: ::considers for a moment and figures..why not:::

SarinaJaral: ::softly:: Credit for your thoughts, Admiral.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::gets out of the shower and remembers the whole, 'get off the ship for a few weeks thing' and starts to pack still in her towell::

LtJGAaron Markus: Haven't had much time to collect things...besides, it would be "illogical" to have too much stuff on a starship...

VAdm Blackthorne: ::sips at the drink and turns to look at the woman who interrupted him::

CaptDougMcKnight: Pendergast> Being a transport away from Earth doesn't hurt. Anyway, looks like you won't be needing your space legs for the next few weeks yourself. We'll take good care of her for you.

Kiley Airell: ::laughs:: you never struck me as the "logical" kind

8:25 PM

SarinaJaral: ::picks up the brandy that the server set on the table in front of her::

VAdm Blackthorne: Ensign Sarina Ja'ral.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::rolls his eyes:: Gee thanks....

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Grins:: You'd better. These men I have here will jump on any opportunity to make sailor jokes.

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > Hakkie, hon, where do you suppose everyone else is?

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::wonders if she should have invited anyone who was outta a place to stay to go back to her house with her::

SarinaJaral: So you know who I am..why in Rixx is that? ::curious:::

VAdm Blackthorne: Easy. I picked you for this assignment.

ElRiov trIdrys: Oops ... ::blushes::

SarinaJaral: :;stands up and moves closer to him::: Why?

VAdm Blackthorne: You stood out from the other graduates.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::finishes packing and changes into some comfy pants and a shirt::

Kiley Airell: ::smiles:: I meant that as a compliment Aaron

SarinaJaral: Because I'm an efficient killing machine disguised as a doctor? ::bristling a bit::

LtJGAaron Markus: ::stands aside to allow Kiley to enter the TL first::

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Slaps Pendergast on the shoulder good naturedly as he heads out. Maybe he should be more reluctant about relinquishing his post, but when he thinks about a few days drive on actual road...

VAdm Blackthorne: I am from Betazed. You fought in the Resistance and helped our people.

Kiley Airell: ::enters:: thank you

CaptDougMcKnight: ::He can't leave fast enough. But there are things to do first::

VAdm Blackthorne: Forgive me for being biased in favor of people who did that.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::grabs her bags and heads out, wondering if she could stay up in Mac's cabin for her stay, he always needs help up there::

SarinaJaral: :;arches a brow:: I did what I had to do..don't ever make the mistake of thinking I am some kind of hero.

VAdm Blackthorne: I never said that you were.

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > Well? Come on, let's get moving again ...

LtJGAaron Markus: ::nods and enters behind, taking the opportunity to check out the view:: I know...I just love to see you smile.

ElRiov trIdrys: ::sighs:: Yes, dear. You're right. I'm sorry.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::does a magic edit is now on earth:: (())

SarinaJaral: So am I supposed to be properly grateful you picked me for Atlantis?

Kiley Airell: ::chuckles softly::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::magic edits self and T'Nal and S'Nac back onto Atlantis:::

VAdm Blackthorne: I also never asked for any gratitude. You asked how I knew your name.

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Gets in the turbolift:: Deck 10.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::looks around feeling a little helpless and hopeless::

LtJGAaron Markus: Deck 10.

8:30 PM

SarinaJaral: ::shrugs::You'd be the first who didn't want something.

LtJGNicoleWeis: Mac> ::sees nicole and smiles:: Cole!! ::moves over to her, smiling::

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > Well? ::folds arms, taps foot::

VAdm Blackthorne: The view.

LtJGNicoleWeis: MAC!!!???? Oh my gosh, what are you doing here? ::drops bag and hugs::

SarinaJaral: ::frowns:: What about the view?

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Gets off on deck 10, and upon entering Ten Forward, makes straight for the bar:: Bourbon. Nothing fancy, just a shot.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::takes Kiley's hand as the TL doors close:: You know...we never did finish our walk...

VAdm Blackthorne: You asked what I was thinking about.

VAdm Blackthorne: The view is better than utter blackness.

SarinaJaral: ::sighs and takes a good look at him, staring intently for a moment:: I'm sorry...

Kiley Airell: Remind me . . . which walk was this?

LtJGNicoleWeis: Mac> hey kiddo, i heard taht the atlantis was goign to be docked for repairs taht would take a long time and since your family is off at your cousins wedding, i figured i would great you ::hugs her::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::enters TL with T'Nal and S'Nac::: Deck 10. ::TL moves::

ElRiov trIdrys: I ...

VAdm Blackthorne: For?

LtJGNicoleWeis: Mac> you are a sight for sore eyes though, i swear, space seems to agree with you

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > You should have checked to see if we had to vacate the ship that quickly.

SarinaJaral: For your loss. :::quietly::

ElRiov trIdrys: But ...

LtJGAaron Markus: On the Starbase right before all this mayhem happened.

VAdm Blackthorne: I see news still spreads quickly.

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > But nothing. ::hmphs::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::laughs:: oh mac, always giving out compliments ::hugs him again and grabs one of her bags::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::TL doors open, steps out with T'Nal and S'Nac:::

LtJGAaron Markus: You may have forgotten, but I haven't.

LtJGNicoleWeis: Mac> ::grabs the bags out of her hands and starts to direct her away from the crowds::

SarinaJaral: I heard about her sacrifice, were close to her, weren't you? ::more a statement than a question::

Kiley Airell: ::jokingly:: I thought we were looking for the way back when the Call to return came . . . you want to finish the walk, and walk the remaining 500 meters that we missed?

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Takes the shot glass, and gulps down the content in one quick gulp. The half smile, half grimace expression is off his face by the time he spots his CO, having inquired as to his location just before Pendergast showed up::

LtJGNicoleWeis: Mac> why don't you come stay with me up in the mountains while your here?

VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods::

VAdm Blackthorne: Yeah. ::Sips at the drink::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::enters lounge with T'Nal and S'Nac:::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::nods and smiles:: i had just been thinking i would stop up to see you while i was here, but staying with you sounds even better

LtJGAaron Markus: ::smiles:: Well when the call to return came, we had to hurry...I figure that's at least 10 minutes of quality time we missed.

SarinaJaral: I know what it is to lose someone..

LtJGNicoleWeis: how are the pups?

8:35 PM

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Crosses over to Blackthorne, frowning slightly to see he's already engaged in a discussion, but this won't take long::

Kiley Airell: wow . . . only 10 minutes?

SarinaJaral: The pain remains, but you end up being able to live with it. It's either than or you curl up and die.

Kiley Airell: I must be losing my touch ::grins::

VAdm Blackthorne: Indeed.

VAdm Blackthorne: Captain McKnight.

ElRiov trIdrys: :::heads to a table with T'Nal and S'Nac:::

CaptDougMcKnight: Admiral Blackthorne, got a sec?

LtJGNicoleWeis: Mac> ::chuckles and leads nicole to the shuttle that will take them close to where they need to be:: they're growing big, your little pippin isn't so little anymore

SarinaJaral: ::glances over and nods to McKnight::

LtJGAaron Markus: Not to mention...a great opportunity for a kiss.

VAdm Blackthorne: Yes, Captain, what is it?

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::laughs:: i hope he hasn't been too much of a hand full for you

LtJGNicoleWeis: Mac> ::looks momentarily offended:: of course not ::smiles down at nicole and puts an arm around her:: glad to have you home kid

CaptDougMcKnight: Well, my replacement just got here, so I'll be leaving in a few minutes. The open road and a cabin in Montana beckon.

CaptDougMcKnight: But first, I just wanted to say, it's been...interesting.

Kiley Airell: well . . . yes, I suppose there is the possibility of that.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods:: That is has. ::offers a handshake::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::smiles up at mac:: i missed you to

VAdm Blackthorne: *it

LtJGAaron Markus: Just thinking of missing all that has been giving me psychological problems. I may need personal counseling session....::tries to hold a serious look::

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Shakes the offered hand and grins softly:: Take care of yourself, Admiral. You won't have me to watch your back for the next few weeks.

ElRiov trIdrys: Waiter > ::heading over to Idrys's table:: What'll it be? ::looks down:: Hey cute kid!

SarinaJaral: ::sips her brandy and watches the two men::

VAdm Blackthorne: You too, Captain. ::slight smile::

ElRiov trIdrys: S'Nac > ::looks up, points:: Gah!

VAdm Blackthorne: Enjoy that cabin. You've earned it.

CaptDougMcKnight: Damned right I have.

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > ::laughs:: A regular food critic already.

ElRiov trIdrys: Waiter > Hey ... I only serve the stuff here. And you folks haven't ordered a thing. ::grins::

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Turns away, still smiling, and nods to Ja'ral:: Ensign.

SarinaJaral: Captain...have a nice vacation.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::rides, looking out at the sights that pass her, remembering her childhood:: i missed it mac

CaptDougMcKnight: Back atcha.

8:40 PM

VAdm Blackthorne: Drink one for Amy, Doug. She would have loved to see it.

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Turns back and smiles faintly, having been headed for the doors:: Oh, no worries; I've got a few lined up.

VAdm Blackthorne: I figured.

LtJGAaron Markus: ::TL reaches Deck 10 and Aaron steps out:: So when can you schedule me in?

VAdm Blackthorne: ::turns back to the window::

ElRiov trIdrys: Well let me see. Tea here.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::takes a long drink::

SarinaJaral: ::makes a decision::: Admiral...what are you doing this evening?

ElRiov trIdrys: T'Nal > Make that tea for two. ::smiles::

LtJGNicoleWeis: Mac> ::squezzes nicole's shoulder:: i always thought that earth ws the place for you, not the stars, but then i'm selfish and i just wanted to keep you up in the mountians with us weird people helping me out

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Exits, and heads straight from his quarters, from there beaming down the first chance he gets::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::blinks:: For once... I don't know.

ElRiov trIdrys: Waiter > ::takes down order, walks off, whistling a show tune:::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::laughs sadly:: i know mac, i know

Kiley Airell: ::smiles:: wanna help me move?

MajorAZinthys: <<Movin' up from Drake, huh?>>

CaptDougMcKnight: (Sorry, gotta check out a little early this time. G'nite, folks.)

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::pats his hand::

SarinaJaral: <<Moving up? ::considers the Admiral:: He works too hard>>

LtJGNicoleWeis: ((bya doug))

ElRiov trIdrys: ( brb )

LtJGAaron Markus: Are you gonna take care of the fighters before or after you move?

SarinaJaral: How about spending it with someone who knows what you're going through?

VAdm Blackthorne: ::turns to look at her::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::sighs:: i wonder if i made the right decision

MajorAZinthys: <<::Laughs:: And the other one doesn't?>>

VAdm Blackthorne: I've never been much on Cousnelors.

CaptDougMcKnight has left this chat.

SarinaJaral: Nor have I.

LtJGNicoleWeis: mac> to go into starfleet and go up to the stars?

SarinaJaral: Dinner and a workout. I need a sparring partner.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::nods slightly::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods:: Sparring. That would at least get my mind off its current fixation.

Kiley Airell: Umm, how long do we have to move out?

LtJGNicoleWeis: i wonder, even know, if my place is on a spaace ship in well, space, or here, on the ground, in mother nature

SarinaJaral: And it would tire you out. I'm no easy partner to work with..assuming you're up for a challenge.

LtJGAaron Markus: I have no idea....probably the sooner the better....Let me go grab my one bag worth and I'll meet you in your quarters to help you.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::smiles a bit, finally:: I welcome it.

SarinaJaral: Good. ::smiles::: Do you want to eat onboard or...find someplace else?

8:45 PM

VAdm Blackthorne: All of Earth is available. It would be a shame to eat ship's food.

LtJGNicoleWeis: mac> ::nods::
