Lt Dakota Ellis: ::looks at the deck:: They fixed my hole!

Kiley Airell: (afk)

Lt Dakota Ellis: Damn

VAdm Blackthorne: ((And don't you dare make a new one!!))

7:45 PM

Lt Dakota Ellis: ()

VAdm Blackthorne: ::makes a few changes to the old layout of his quarters and nods in satisfaction::

Lt Dakota Ellis: ::looks at all the new things to play with::

LMajAdamDrake: Jackson> Aye, sir. Warm-up sequence in progress.

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Stands in the security command and control center, monitoring the comm traffic before turning to the appropriate technician:: Looks like we're getting ready to shove off. Better recall our men from the airlock.

LMajAdamDrake: Keep me informed. I'll be in my office. ::moves into his office and lets the doors slide shut:: Ah, the quiet that I've missed so much.

VAdm Blackthorne: +Drake+ Blackthorne to Drake.

CaptDougMcKnight: I'm willing to bet they're getting more than a little bored with standing there looking stolid.

LMajAdamDrake: +Blackthorne+ Go ahead, Admiral. ::looks at a PADD::

CaptDougMcKnight: ::As the technician nods and begins recalling the marines still on duty, checks the roster and notes to his satisfaction that all his people are back onboard.::

VAdm Blackthorne: +Drake+ Estimated time until the warp core is ready for launch?

7:50 PM

Lt TKirr: <<Sorry.. was forced afk>>

CaptDougMcKnight: (WB)

LMajAdamDrake: ::looks at a PADD, another one, that is:: +Blackthorne+ We started started the warm-up sequence. Probably ten minutes or so, sir.

Lt TKirr: ::making last minute adjustments to her quarters::

VAdm Blackthorne: +Drake+ Excellent, keep me informed.

LMajAdamDrake: +Blackthorne+ Aye, sir. ::stands and moves into engineering:: Start the main warm-up sequence. I want full power to engines and thrusters within ten minutes. Jeddin, get to the warp manifold and monitor it's progress.

Kiley Airell: ((Okay, bak . . . sorry y'all . . . I'm at my relatives' place))

VAdm Blackthorne: ::walks out of his quarters and into the TL:: Bridge.

7:55 PM

Lt TKirr: ::exits her quarters in a pristine uniform, making her way toward the Bridge, looking over familiar territory with satisfaction::

Lt Dakota Ellis: ::sits at one of the desks and puts her feet up:: Computer, play Ellis music program 34

Lt TKirr: Computer> ::plays static::

Lt Dakota Ellis: ::blinks::

Kiley Airell: ::sitting in her seat on the bridge::

Lt Dakota Ellis: Computer what's with the static?

Lt TKirr: Computer> Program not recognized.

Lt Dakota Ellis: ::groans:: I hate station techs

Lt TKirr: ::steps into a turbolift:: Bridge.

Kiley Airell: Greetings Admiral

LMajAdamDrake: ::moves out to a diagnostic terminal:: All right, dilithium matrix working at full capacity. Excellent.

VAdm Blackthorne: Greetings!

LMajAdamDrake: Jeddin> +Drake+ Jeddin to Drake, the manifold is stabilized. Ready for full engine integration.

Kiley Airell: You're in a good mood

LMajAdamDrake: ::nods:: +Jeddin+ Thank you, Michael.

LMajAdamDrake: Lee! Initiate start-up sequence.

VAdm Blackthorne: I'm back on my ship.

LMajAdamDrake: Lee> ::nods:: Yes, Major. ::starts inputting the codes:: Awaiting your command authorization, sir.

LMajAdamDrake: Authorization?

Lt Dakota Ellis: ::manually accesses her personal files and rebulids her music programs:: I really really dislike station techs.. First they fix my hole then they screw up my music... you just don't mess with a person's music

Lt TKirr: ::slides to a stop at the Bridge and exits lift, giving the place a once over::

8:00 PM

LMajAdamDrake: Lee> ::doesn't look amused:: When they refit the ship they lock the core, remember?

LMajAdamDrake: Ah, yes, docking and refit protocols.

Lt Dakota Ellis: and now they have me talking to myself

Kiley Airell: ::chuckles:: You didn't like the other ship much, did ya?

VAdm Blackthorne: Oh, it had its moments.

Kiley Airell: But . . . it wasn't really yours . . .

LMajAdamDrake: Computer, reintegrate the warp core systems with the surrounding components. Full activation of warp core. Authorization Drake Zeta Alpha Two One Seven.

LMajAdamDrake: Computer> Authorization Confirmed.

VAdm Blackthorne: It wasn't. And I couldn't rely on it.

LMajAdamDrake: ::watches the core hum to light and gets bathed in blue light:: +Blackthorne+ Engineering to Bridge.

VAdm Blackthorne: +Drake+ Blackthorne here.

LMajAdamDrake: +Blackthorne+ We're ready to go, Admiral.

VAdm Blackthorne: +Drake+ Well done. Stand by for launch.

LMajAdamDrake: +Blackthorne+ Aye, sir.

Lt TKirr: ::stands at attention:: Lieutenant T'Kirr, reporting for duty, Admiral.

LMajAdamDrake: ::motions for his crews to get into place:: Prepare to release all moorings.

Kiley Airell: ::looks over to TKirr and grins::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods and smiles at T'Kirr:: Welcome aboard, Lieutenant.

Lt TKirr: ::nods and promptly takes her station::

Lt Dakota Ellis: ::gets two programs in place:: That'll do.. Computer play Ellis music program 2b.. Then activate the sencor grid..

VAdm Blackthorne: ::sees that Markus isn't at the helm, slides into the seat::

VAdm Blackthorne: Lt. T'Kirr, is the entire crew aboard?

Lt TKirr: ::checks status::

Lt Dakota Ellis: ::rolls over to a command consoul:: Well at least the chairs roll better'

Lt TKirr: ::looks up:: Aye, sir.

8:05 PM

Lt Dakota Ellis: ::listens to Bajroan flutes:: cause heaven forbid I acturally walked around the lab

VAdm Blackthorne: +Dockmaster+ Vice Admiral Blackthorne to Starbase One Docking Control.

LMajAdamDrake: Hey guys, you're going to need to prepare to engage one-fourth impulse.

LMajAdamDrake: Engineers> ::look at him funny::

VAdm Blackthorne: +Dockmaster+ Go ahead, Admiral. ::Gulps::

Lt TKirr: <<rofl>>

VAdm Blackthorne: +Dockmaster+ USS Atlantis requesting permission to launch.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::grins::

LMajAdamDrake: Just trust me.

LMajAdamDrake: Jeddin> Sir, lauching procedures are manuevering thrusters only.

LMajAdamDrake: ::nods:: I know that. ::shrugs:: Tell that to the Admiral.

VAdm Blackthorne: Dockmaster> Granted, Admiral. Have a safe trip. ::begins opening the spacedoors::

VAdm Blackthorne: +Dockmaster+ Blackthorne out.

Lt Dakota Ellis: ::notices we're getting ready to launch::

VAdm Blackthorne: Dockmaster> Watch this! ::to the others in the office:: He always breaks the thrusters-only rule.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::transfers Atlantis to internal power::

Lt Dakota Ellis: ::pulls her legs up and holds on to the arms of the chair:: I love this part

Lt TKirr: ::brings external sensors online::

Lt Dakota Ellis: Crewmen> We're launching!! Everyone hold tight!

Kiley Airell: ::relaxes in the chair

Kiley Airell: ::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::clears all moorings::

Lt TKirr: ::hangs onto her console::

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Waits for it:: If he was a real man, he'd cut out this "One fourth" crap.

LMajAdamDrake: There go the moorings. All right, people, here we go.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::backs the Atlantis out of her parking spot::

VAdm Blackthorne: ::lines her up with the spacedoors::

8:10 PM

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Scoffs as a marine looks at him funny:: What? Sure, he's a Maverick and all, but Han Solo would so be thumbing his nose at us.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::engages FULL impulse power!::

VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Atlantis rockets out of the spacedoors!

CaptDougMcKnight: Marine> Han Solo flew a ship the size of our cargo bay.

Lt Dakota Ellis: ::bounces around the lab like a pin ball::

VAdm Blackthorne: Dockmaster> ::jaw drops::

CaptDougMcKnight: Woah!

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Steadies himself on a panel:: No one's THAT Betazoid.

Lt TKirr: ::manages to free one hand to check their clearance::

Lt Dakota Ellis: (No one's that betaziod?)

VAdm Blackthorne: ::sets a course and engages to warp six once they're clear::

CaptDougMcKnight: (As in, despite being part Betazoid, Blackthorne couldn't have known McKnight was thinking what he was thinking.)

CaptDougMcKnight: Johnson! Is he doing what I think he's doing?

CaptDougMcKnight: Techie Johnson> Yes, sir. Full impulse.

VAdm Blackthorne: Dockmaster> ::Speechless::

Lt TKirr: Approximately fourteen centimeters to the right from center, Admiral. Impressive.

Kiley Airell: ::laughs:: you think you went slow enough Admiral?

Lt Dakota Ellis: (ahh.. lol.. and here I thought it was based on Tori's poilting skills in Gen.)

VAdm Blackthorne: What, next time you want warp?

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Chuckles:: Remind me to buy that crazy son of a bitch a gin and tonic.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::grinning::

Lt Dakota Ellis: ::picks up the crap she knocked over:: One of these days I need to grow up before my son becomes an adult before me

CaptDougMcKnight: Marine> But...we don't use money.

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Glares at the vexingly rational soldier:: Yeah, and remind me to buy you c nice cold can of shut the hell up.

Kiley Airell: Of course Admiral.

LMajAdamDrake: ::stares at the readouts:: What the hell was that?

VAdm Blackthorne: I may be crazy, but I'm not that cr- ::starts to think about the possibilities::

LMajAdamDrake: Full Impulse?

Lt TKirr: <<Think we should've had an all hands message before moving.. something like, "Brace for... impulse!">>

VAdm Blackthorne: ((I like slamming people back in their seats))

8:15 PM

Lt TKirr: <<If they're IN seats>>

VAdm Blackthorne: ((That's not my problem, now is it?))

Kiley Airell: ((Actually . . . it is . . . you ARE the CO))

Lt TKirr: <<You're the Captain, everything's your problem>>

VAdm Blackthorne: Fourteen centimeters, huh?

VAdm Blackthorne: ((More like sickbay's problem for fixing the bumps and bruises))

LMajAdamDrake: ::sighs:: And he wonders why our ship is in the state it's in after a year in space. He does that shit. ::heads back to his office::

LMajAdamDrake: ::reads up on the mission that he knows NOTHING about::

VAdm Blackthorne: Room for improvement there.

8:20 PM

Kiley Airell: I'm surprised you were that far off Admiral.

Lt Dakota Ellis: (must be some thrilling reading then)

VAdm Blackthorne: Yes, two centimeters is pretty far.

Kiley Airell: ::nods:: yes it is.

VAdm Blackthorne: I hope they recorded that back at Spacedock, I'd like to see it.

LMajAdamDrake: Jeddin> ::comes in:: Sir?

LMajAdamDrake: Yes, Michael? ::looks up::

LMajAdamDrake: Jeddin> Our systems diagnostic reports. ::hands it to him.

LMajAdamDrake: ::takes it:: Thank you, Captain. ::nods::

LMajAdamDrake: Jeddin> ::leaves::

Lt TKirr: <<Doubt that diagnostic is up to date after that launch =P>>

Kiley Airell: ((my connection is pretty bad right now))

Lt TKirr: <<Have Drake take a look at it>>

Kiley Airell: ((LOL))

VAdm Blackthorne: ::stands up from the helm and nods with satisfaction::

8:25 PM

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Grins to one of the techs:: Hey, call up the recording from our forward imaging sensors. I wanna see those doors coming at us.

Lt TKirr: ::begins to wonder if Markus was purposefully not on the Bridge for launch::

LMajAdamDrake: ::stands up and moves into engineering::

VAdm Blackthorne: Markus will eat his hat when he hears about that.

Lt TKirr: ::frowns at the confusing expression::

Kiley Airell: ::laughs:: He'll be sorry he wasn't here at the helm Sir.

VAdm Blackthorne: Aye, he certainly will.

LMajAdamDrake: ::looks at the people moving around doing their job:: Ah, back to the good old days.

VAdm Blackthorne: ::sits down in his seat::

VAdm Blackthorne: It's good to be home.

Lt TKirr: <<...I'd emote something, but that'd be un-Vulcan-like of me.>>

8:30 PM

Kiley Airell: You definately seem happy

CaptDougMcKnight: ::Smiles as an image of Earth appears on the sensor log on the way out of space dock:: We'll see each other again soon, don't you worry.

VAdm Blackthorne: I don't think I'm the only one.

Lt Dakota Ellis: (No more un-Valcan then Spock telling starfleet to go to hell. lol)

Lt TKirr: <<Mm.. doesn't call for that yet.>>

VAdm Blackthorne: ((Spock would only have said that if he were human.))

LMajAdamDrake: Why don't we have windows? I want a window. ::looks around the walls:: Can we just install one right there? ::points directly next to the warp core on the wall behind it::

Lt TKirr: I am pleased to be back as well.

Kiley Airell: Yeah, it's nice to be "home."

LMajAdamDrake: Jeddin> Don't think so.

LMajAdamDrake: Come on. It'd be something to this drab room. Bulkhead, terminal, warp core.

LMajAdamDrake: Jeddin> Blue ambience not enough for you?

LMajAdamDrake: ::sighs:: Whatever.

Lt Dakota Ellis: (Maybe he's like green glow better)

VAdm Blackthorne: And so we're off to work.

Lt TKirr: <<Ooh.. Romulanish.>>

VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM

VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM

VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM

Kiley Airell: ::paused::

8:35 PM

Lt TKirr: ::pauses::

LMajAdamDrake: ::pauses::

CaptDougMcKnight: ::pauses::

VAdm Blackthorne: Well, that's all for tonight. Next week, a new mission begins!

LMajAdamDrake: Sweet! ::smiles::

Kiley Airell: woohoo

CaptDougMcKnight: Indeed.

Lt Dakota Ellis: night folks

CaptDougMcKnight: Night.

VAdm Blackthorne: Dismissed!

LMajAdamDrake: ::clears throat:: I mean, Sweet! ::smiles::
