LtAaron Markus: Admiral on deck!

JackLeirone: ::salutes""

JackLeirone: ::

LtAaron Markus:

Kiley Airell: *whispers* you're a little late

VAdm Blackthorne: ::laughs::

LtAaron Markus: Shhh.

ElRiov trIdrys has joined this chat.

JackLeirone: Notice how things got silent when Idrys entered the room?

ElRiov trIdrys: Evening Admiral, Doug, Jack, Kiley, Aaron

LtAaron Markus: ::nods::

ElRiov trIdrys: oh yeah blame it on the Doc. You all are getting your exams when we get back on Atlantis ya know.

ElRiov trIdrys: :::chuckles, rubs hands:::

JackLeirone: You can exam my ass.

JackLeirone: Oh wait you do that all the time. Never mind.

ElRiov trIdrys: that's probably gonna be our plot arc for Hallowe'n ...

VAdm Blackthorne: ::tosses Irdys the rubber gloves::

Lt TKirr has joined this chat.

Kiley Airell: Hey McKnight, Idrys

Kiley Airell: Hey TKirr

JackLeirone: JK, dog.

ElRiov trIdrys: ::snaps the gloves on::: Danke mein Kapitan

ElRiov trIdrys: Evening T'Kirr

VAdm Blackthorne: Bitte herr doktor.

Lt TKirr: Good evening.

JackLeirone: Ah! Sprechen Sie Deutsch?

CaptDougMcKnight: McKnight's a trained medic. He'll pass himself.

VAdm Blackthorne: Nein, ich sprechen sie Irish!

ElRiov trIdrys: Jawohl, meine name ist Koenig.

7:35 PM

JackLeirone: Wunderbar. Ich bin Liesse Jack. Ich freue mich, Sie zu treffen.

LtAaron Markus: Hola, me llamo es Alonzo.

JackLeirone: Ich verstehe nicht. Was sagen sie, Markus?

Lt TKirr: I supposedly knew German pretty well in 1st grade when we moved there for a year... don't remember any now =/

CaptDougMcKnight: Sigh...I'm gonna have to beat you all like a Mandalorian step child.

LtAaron Markus: What?!?!

JackLeirone: Hey. I AM a Mandalorian stepchild. I resent that.

ElRiov trIdrys: And I highly resemble that

LtAaron Markus: You mean "resemble"?

ElRiov trIdrys: HA!

CaptDougMcKnight: Sorry, I just spent a good portion of my evening killing Mandalorians.

LtAaron Markus:

VAdm Blackthorne: Hey, what a coincidence, I did too.

JackLeirone: Oh great.

CaptDougMcKnight: They're annoyingly hard to kill, but they all have cool stuff when you loot their corpses.

JackLeirone: I spent a good portion of my evening hanging out with people.

CaptDougMcKnight: One had 2 light sabers! I won't have to give Bastila back her light staff after all!

CaptDougMcKnight: I wonder how much I can sell one of those suckers for.

JackLeirone: If I wanted abuse, I'd go to Meridian.

VAdm Blackthorne: About 300 credits

7:40 PM

CaptDougMcKnight: Oh...well, at least I took the 1,000 credits for whacking him.

CaptDougMcKnight: I'll work on light side points later.

VAdm Blackthorne: Well, that looks like everyone for tonight, so let's get started.

VAdm Blackthorne: Attention!

JackLeirone: ::AA::

ElRiov trIdrys: ::AA::

CaptDougMcKnight: ::AA::

Lt TKirr: ::AA::

VAdm Blackthorne: Tonight, after almost giving Drake a heart attack with my testing of our warp engines, we're en route to a large biomass that came up on the long range sensors.

VAdm Blackthorne: Questions?

JackLeirone: ::raises hand::

VAdm Blackthorne: Jack?

JackLeirone: Do we know anything about the biomass?

VAdm Blackthorne: Nope.

Lt TKirr: Just that it's huge

JackLeirone: Oh?

Lt TKirr: I believe I quoted 7K kilometers diameter

ElRiov trIdrys: size of an asteroid or something like that

JackLeirone: Oh that's nothin.

CaptDougMcKnight: That's a lot of meters.

VAdm Blackthorne: Anyway, if that's all the questions...

Lt TKirr: 7K, as in seven thousand O.o

JackLeirone: ::is on the Atlantis or something like it::

7:45 PM

Kiley Airell: ::on the bridge::

Lt TKirr: ::at Science on the Bridge, watching the big thing they're speeding towards::

JackLeirone: ::keepin' it real down in engineering::

LtAaron Markus: ::sitting at Helm/Ops, flying toward the big blob looking thing::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::in SB after having finished work on patient ... having finished report, leaving Nurses Emdee and Arenn in charge, heads out:::

VAdm Blackthorne: Time until we reach it?

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Steps off the turbolift, and onto the bridge, where he promptly finds a railing to lean on:: Permission to enjoy the view up here, Admiral?

VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods:: Go ahead.

LtAaron Markus: 15 minutes.

JackLeirone: ::misses Nicole...where the hell is she?::

ElRiov trIdrys: +Arenn+ Keep me apprised of matters there and let me know if there are any changes in the patient's condition.

JackLeirone: ::realizes how painful it is when someone disappears with no word::

ElRiov trIdrys: Arenn > +Idrys+ Yes Doctor.

Lt TKirr: ::looks over her console as it beeps::

ElRiov trIdrys: Arenn > ::sighs, turning to Emdee:: Don't you just wish you had him?

JackLeirone: ::to all surrounding NPC shirts rather::

Lt TKirr: I am getting more detailed scans at this range, Admiral.

VAdm Blackthorne: I'm all ears.

CaptDougMcKnight: (Ha ha, gotta love typos, eh Jack?)

ElRiov trIdrys: Emdee > ::nods:: I know. The only ones worth having are already taken and the rest ... ::shrugs::

VAdm Blackthorne: (Especially when they're intentional)

ElRiov trIdrys: Arenn > Yeah. Men.

CaptDougMcKnight: (Absolutely.)

ElRiov trIdrys: :::enters TL::: Bridge. ::TL moves::

JackLeirone: Keep everything steady and keep your eyes on the warp core. You know what happens when Starships go near anomalous blobs. Come on, people, get to it.

Lt TKirr: It seems to be mostly fluidic in nature. Very conductive, it seems.

JackLeirone: When Drake comes back, I don't want him biting my head off.

VAdm Blackthorne: Any signs of intelligence?

ElRiov trIdrys: ::TL doors open, steps out onto Bridge::

7:50 PM

Lt TKirr: None so far.

JackLeirone: ::stands over the console, readying himself:: How's that warp core?

CaptDougMcKnight: How do you go about looking for signs of intelligence from a giant blob?

JackLeirone: Norman Philip Clemens> All copasetic, sir. Coolant levels, I/O, everything's stable.

VAdm Blackthorne: Finding something that appears to function as a brain.

CaptDougMcKnight: Bearing in mind, I am, in fact, a layman.

VAdm Blackthorne: That's only one way to do it.

7:55 PM

JackLeirone: ::heads out to the bridge:: I'm out to the bridge. You! Watch over.

JackLeirone: Nell Paula Christopher> Yes, sir.

ElRiov trIdrys: ::turns to T'Kirr:: What do you have?

Lt TKirr: ::checks new sweep:: There appears to be a concentrated area of conductive activity. A web of collagenous material near the center of the fluidic mass.

VAdm Blackthorne: A nervous system?

Lt TKirr: It could indicate such.

ElRiov trIdrys: ::peers at console::

Lt TKirr: I'm picking up traces of sodium in that area.

JackLeirone: ::arrives on the bridge, heads to Engineering station::

CaptDougMcKnight: Guess that rules out space amoeba then.

Lt TKirr: Liquid phosphate. Magnesium.

VAdm Blackthorne: Markus, take us out of warp.

LtAaron Markus: Aye, sir. ::drops from warp::

VAdm Blackthorne: On screen.

Kiley Airell: ((sorry y'all. I'm falling asleep. I think I'm going to go and actually get some sleep))

ElRiov trIdrys: :::turns:::

LtAaron Markus: ::puts on screen::

CaptDougMcKnight: (Night Kiley.)

ElRiov trIdrys: ( Laters Kiley )

8:00 PM

VAdm Blackthorne: ( Night! )

LtAaron Markus: <<Night Kiley>>

JackLeirone: ::watches intently::

Kiley Airell: ((nigth all))

Kiley Airell has left this chat.

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> A large blue amorphous mass appears on the screen, about 1/4 the size of Earth.

VAdm Blackthorne: ( 1/6, I meant )

LtAaron Markus: <<It's still big>>

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Just stares for a second:: Huh, that's...that's pretty big.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::stands and looks at the screen::

Lt TKirr: It seems to be emitting a faint gravitational field.

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Turns to T'Kirr:: Propulsion?

VAdm Blackthorne: No doubt. Kepler wouldn't have it any other way.

JackLeirone: ((I still don't think it's that big. honestly.I'm not impressed))

LtAaron Markus: <<LOL>>

Lt TKirr: I would surmise it is due to its size alone.

VAdm Blackthorne: Can you get a reading on density?

LtAaron Markus: ::keeps the ship at a reasonable distance from the gravitational field::

CptKetchum has joined this chat.

LtAaron Markus: <<Ketchup!>>

LtJGNicoleWeis has joined this chat.

JackLeirone: ((Darlin'!))

CaptDougMcKnight: (Hey Ketchum, Weis.)

Lt TKirr: <<I said faint field, Markus =P>>

LtAaron Markus: <<LOL>>

ElRiov trIdrys: ( Evening Ketchum, Nicole )

JackLeirone: ((and Nicole!  ))

LtJGNicoleWeis: (hey guys, sorry for hte lateness)

JackLeirone: ((JK, dog))

CptKetchum: {::waves to all:: }

Lt TKirr: ::calculating on sensors::

CptKetchum: {::blows kisses at Jack::}

JackLeirone: (( ::bats eyes:: ))

VAdm Blackthorne: ::watches the thing on the viewscreen as T'Kirr calculates:

JackLeirone: ::is still sittin'...chillin'...watchin' the blob::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::in sickbay?""

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::

Lt TKirr: <<Hm, not sure what I'm measuring in =P>>

JackLeirone: (( a horse))

VAdm Blackthorne: (Density is measured in kg/m^3))

JackLeirone: ((God I could crap on command, I'm so fulla shit))

LtJGNicoleWeis: ((ew))

ElRiov trIdrys: (( TMI TMI ))

Lt TKirr: An average of twenty two kilograms per cubic meter.

JackLeirone: ((it was an expression))

Lt TKirr: <<Thanks, brain fart>>

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::leaves sickbay and heads up to the bridge where idrys is::

VAdm Blackthorne: Well, that would explain the gravity.

8:10 PM

CptKetchum has left this chat.

JackLeirone: Nick Preston Czinsky> +Leirone+ Sir, the warp core's doin' somethin' weird.

LtAaron Markus: ::Is confused about the gravity and density stuff, just knows the thing is bigger than this ship::

JackLeirone: +Czinsky+ Would you mind being more specific?

Lt TKirr: <<I could brush up myself Markus =P>>

JackLeirone: Czinsky> +Leirone+ There's some weird gravitational thing...

JackLeirone: +Czinsky+ Stop using the word "weird" and act professional, would you?

VAdm Blackthorne: Is it moving at all, Markus?

Lt TKirr: ::looks up from console to watch thing filling viewer::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::walks onto the bridge and moves over next to idrys::

LtAaron Markus: ::checks:: It's position hasn't changed any, but there is some kind of movement in it.

JackLeirone: Czinsky> +Leirone+ An unknown source of gravity is causing an matter-antimatter malfunction. The combustion won't occur with this gravity. I don't know where it's coming from.

JackLeirone: +Czinsky+ Thank you, Czinsky. Try as best you can to get it fixed. Leirone out.

JackLeirone: ::to Blackthorne:: Sir, we have a problem in engineering.

VAdm Blackthorne: What is it?

ElRiov trIdrys: ::q:: Odd thing isn't it ... low density and gravity field ... no known source of intelligence ... I wonder how long it'll be before we send out a probe or something like that. So far it's done nothing.

8:15 PM

JackLeirone: This weird grav...::corrects himself:: An unknown source of gravity has disabled the matter-antimatter combustion. We're unable to go into warp.

VAdm Blackthorne: That's the most absurd thing I've ever heard.

Lt TKirr: ::furrows brow::

ElRiov trIdrys: ::sighs:: ... famous last words ...

LtJGNicoleWeis: :::looks at the thing everyone else is looking at::

VAdm Blackthorne: The gravity it exhibits is on par with a moon of its size. Something with that mass will have a bit of gravity to it.

VAdm Blackthorne: Go double check your staff and ensure it's not a sensor malfunction.

JackLeirone: Sir. ::departs, sees Nicole:: Nicole! Where have you been?

JackLeirone: ::lightly grabs her hand as a slight sign of affection::

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::smiles:: hey jack! i just got up here

VAdm Blackthorne: ::sits back down::

Lt TKirr: <<Isn't Nicole on the Bridge?>>

JackLeirone: ::looks at her shyly, says quietly:: It's good to see you. But I gotta go. ::gives her hand a slight squeeze:: See ya.

JackLeirone: ::departs::

VAdm Blackthorne: What's the makeup of the majority of the blue liquid?

LtJGNicoleWeis: bye jack, come by once your off

LtJGNicoleWeis: ((yup nicole is on the bridge ))

JackLeirone: ::to TL:: Engineering.

JackLeirone: ::steps of TL and into engineering:: Czinsky, report. Show me what the hell is going on.

JackLeirone: Czinsky> Over here, Jack.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::looks around the bridge, amazed at what it looks like::

8:20 PM

Lt TKirr: It appears to be highly concentrated with oxygen.

JackLeirone: ::thinks...right...I don't outrank anybody here:: Show me.

JackLeirone: Czinsky> ::points:: Look. It's the weirdest thing I've ever seen.

VAdm Blackthorne: Interesting.

JackLeirone: ::disregards the word, appalled at the sight:: Damn it. How can that be? We have enough protection around that damn chamber to repel a full-on Cardassian attack.

VAdm Blackthorne: With that kind of gravity and density, if we launched a probe... it would float on the surface, I believe.

JackLeirone: Czinsky> How could something affect only the m-am chamber and nothing else on the ship?

Lt TKirr: More than likely.

JackLeirone: Right. You'd think the matter-antimatter chamber was.........targetted.....

VAdm Blackthorne: Do you see any reason that we should not?

JackLeirone: +Blackthorne+ Admiral, it is not a sensor malfunction; the chamber is definitely disabled.

Lt TKirr: No. The electrical activity is deep within the mass and does not reach the surface.

LtAaron Markus: Other than the fact that the thing, if intelligent, might see it as aggresive and attack...

VAdm Blackthorne: +Leirone+ I don't buy it. Double check, and if it's true, start it again. There's no way in hell an object smaller than Earth' moon could affect our warp core with its gravity.

8:25 PM

JackLeirone: +Blackthorne+ Sir, I am double-checking. I don't buy it either and I'm staring right at it.

VAdm Blackthorne: +Leirone+ Fix it. Now. Blackthorne out.

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Frowns and walks over to tactical, relieving the officer on duty there:: I'll start running scans for anything else that could conceivably be causing this.

VAdm Blackthorne: I wouldn't put it past the systems of this ship, honestly. Gravity of small moons doesn't cause warp cores to stop working.

LtJGNicoleWeis: ::standing watching all of this::

CaptDougMcKnight: I wasn't aware any gravity did that without tearing the ship apart first, sir.

JackLeirone: ::looks at Czinsky with worry...thinks, "What a tight-ass.":: All right, folks. You heard the Admiral. Christiensen, Chalk, and Cranston.

VAdm Blackthorne: It doesn't. Something else is broken.

JackLeirone: All of you get to the surrounding consoles and standby for manual repairs.

VAdm Blackthorne: T'Kirr, launch a class III probe into a decaying orbit and try to splash land it.

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Starts scanning for any subspace anomalies, spatial distortions, or any other source of outside interference::

JackLeirone: Clive and Czansky, you're with me. Run tests. Test after test.

Lt TKirr: ::nods, setting the probe up remotely::

JackLeirone: NPCs> ::do as they're told::

8:30 PM

Lt TKirr: ::calculates appropriate vector and launches probe::

JackLeirone: ::runs tests::

JackLeirone: Czinsky> Nothing, sir. Not working.

JackLeirone: I can see, Czinsky.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::watches the screen::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::hopes that it doesn't decide that they're lunch::

ElRiov trIdrys: :::thinks "Now comes the fun part" :::

JackLeirone: Cranston, what are you getting?

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Has a tractor beam on standby in case it does::

VAdm Blackthorne: Doctor Idrys, see if you can get any sort of bio data on it. Anything you can establish a baseline with.

JackLeirone: Cranston> Nothing, Jack. The emitters are fully aligned, everything should be working...but it's not.

ElRiov trIdrys: Aye Sir. ::heads to medical console, begins scanning::

JackLeirone: ::sighs and looks at Czinsky intensely:: Manual repair. Open 'er up. So to speak.

JackLeirone: Czinsky> Sir, that's a little unorthodox.

JackLeirone: :;losing it a little:: We're doing as the Admiral said. We're fixing it. Aren't we?

JackLeirone: ::goes over to the core, climbs a ladder, looks at Czinsky:: Well? Are you coming?

8:35 PM

JackLeirone: Czinsky> Jack what are you trying to do? Kill yourself? You can't open up the m-am chamber! Who the fuck are you trying to impress?

JackLeirone: ::points menacingly:: I don't need to impress anybody. ::climbs down::

VAdm Blackthorne: The probe should have landed by now.

Lt TKirr: It is about to land now, Admiral.

JackLeirone: ::climbs down through a jeffries tube to the m-am chamber:: Okay. Just like pulling a tooth.

JackLeirone: ::pulls up console, taps on it::

Lt TKirr: ::checks incoming probe readings::

VAdm Blackthorne: ( I can't IM you, Jack )

JackLeirone: (Hold on...)

Jack Leirone: (okay)

Lt TKirr: The probe is picking up chemical reactions of boron and... an unknown element.

VAdm Blackthorne: Unknown element? Fascinating.

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Looks up:: How's that possible?

ElRiov trIdrys: Scanning for bio data.

Lt TKirr: ::patches info through to Idrys' console::
