7:42:41 PM vadmblackthorne: Alright, tonight we have successfully captured the Machen Bren spy shuttle. It's sitting in cargo bay one being combed over by Engineers.
7:42:51 PM vadmblackthorne: Its crew of two are in our brig, of course.
7:43:23 PM vadmblackthorne: News of their capture has spread through the Xindi fleet and several of the captains are reporting civil unrest as the civilians demand justice for the crimes of the Machen Bren.
7:43:56 PM vadmblackthorne: We have successfully evaded the inbound attack force that the spy shuttle was leading to us, and are moving again, but...
7:43:56 PM zmordonnon: Which species of Xindi? There are 6....
7:44:05 PM vadmblackthorne: A mixed variety of them.
7:44:21 PM vadmblackthorne: And please do not interrupt the brief. I'll ask for questions afterwards.
7:44:22 PM zmordonnon: I mean the two in the Brig
7:45:10 PM vadmblackthorne: Several of the Xindi ships must stop soon to aid in their reactor cooling because of limited warp drives.
7:46:09 PM vadmblackthorne: The two prisoners are Machen Bren, not Xindi.
7:46:14 PM vadmblackthorne: Questions?
7:46:25 PM cmdrshelev: Is our engineer still in sickbay?
7:46:33 PM zmordonnon: Duh...sorry....
7:46:35 PM vadmblackthorne: No.

7:53:55 PM cmdrshelev: ::Climbs out of the shuttle.:: Ok, it's open. Mostly. Lieutenant, get an ODN harness clamped into that thing.

7:55:43 PM cmdrshelev: There's still some wires left. Damned if I know what they do; that's your job.
7:55:58 PM majdougmcknight: +Blackthorne+ Healthy, and tight-lipped. These folks are professional as they come, no doubt about it. I'm holding them seperately for now...it's possible the isolation, and a few well worded updates as to the disposition of the
7:56:34 PM majdougmcknight: Xindi fleet might make them a little more cooperative. But I can't promise anything at this point.
7:57:36 PM vadmblackthorne: +McKnight+ I would like to visit them in a bit, personally.

8:00:12 PM zmordonnon: +Atlantis+ Jolly Roger to Atlantis, Jolly Roger to Atlantis...I am inbound to rendezvous.
8:00:52 PM lcdrtkirr: +Jolly Roger+ This is Atlantis. I have you on sensors.
8:01:11 PM majdougmcknight: (BRB)
8:01:35 PM zmordonnon: +Atlantis+ Greetings...I am Mordonnon Zel, who might have the pleasure of speaking to?
8:02:00 PM vadmblackthorne: Who in the bloody hell is that?
8:02:33 PM kileyairell: good question.
8:03:16 PM lcdrtkirr: +Jolly Roger+ This is Lieutenant Commander T'Kirr. You are from Starfleet?
8:03:57 PM lcdrtkirr: <<Sorry, for some reason I thought you were in RR, B>>
8:04:27 PM vadmblackthorne: Starfleet? Bloody hell, how did he get out here?
8:04:30 PM zmordonnon: +Atlantis+ Affirmative...I just happen to have my own transport. I am your new helmsman.
8:05:00 PM kileyairell: ::wonders why starfleet would send a new officer to the Atlantis, while they were out in Mach Bren space::
8:05:01 PM lcdrtkirr: ::looks toward Blackthorne::
8:05:56 PM cmdrshelev: (( ::Wonders how the hell he didn't get shot down:: ))
8:06:22 PM vadmblackthorne: This is highly irregular.
8:06:34 PM zmordonnon: :::brings the Jolly Roger into a parallel course with the Atlantis:::
8:06:36 PM majdougmcknight: (It's what comic fans refer to as plot induced stupidity. The Machen Bren had a few off days.)
8:06:43 PM lcdrtkirr: Shall I let him approach, sir?
8:06:57 PM vadmblackthorne: Sensor sweep. Verify that he's not Machen Bren or anything other than what his records say he should be.
8:07:20 PM lcdrtkirr: Already done, sir. I detect nothing irregular.
8:07:44 PM lcdrtkirr: His signature is definitely Starfleet.
8:08:13 PM vadmblackthorne: Bring him aboard, shuttle bay three.
8:08:14 PM zmordonnon: +Atlantis+ You got a parking place for the Roger? I will bring her in.
8:08:20 PM vadmblackthorne: +McKnight+ Blackthorne to McKnight.
8:08:38 PM majdougmcknight: +Blackthorne+ McKnight here.
8:08:48 PM lcdrtkirr: +Jolly Roger+ Jolly Roger, you are cleared for Shuttle Bay Three. We are prepared for you to dock.
8:09:28 PM vadmblackthorne: +McKnight+ Meet our new helmsman, arriving in shuttlebay three. He has somehow managed to make it all the way here on his own transport.
8:10:03 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> ::rocks on his heels, peering over T'Kirr's shoulder::
8:10:14 PM zmordonnon: + Atlantis + Acknowledged:::coming in for a landing with no trouble:::
8:10:39 PM majdougmcknight: +Blackthorne+ So I gathered. 4 of my men have already been diverted from deck patrol, just in case. I'm on my way to join them now.
8:10:58 PM vadmblackthorne: +McKnight+ I find this remarkable, so you certainly understand my curiosity about his nature.
8:11:35 PM majdougmcknight: +Blackthorne+ Preaching to the choir, sir. If he so much as talks funny, you'll know about it.
8:11:51 PM vadmblackthorne: +McKnight+ Thank you, Major. Blackthorne out.
8:12:01 PM lcdrtkirr: ::watches the shuttle dock:: His vessel is in the bay.
8:12:09 PM kileyairell: Did you know we were getting a new helmsman Admiral?
8:13:17 PM majdougmcknight: ::Strides into the shuttlebay, standing before the shuttle with a sidearm at his side, flanked by 4 marines in helmets and black BDUs, phaser compression rifles aimed and ready::
8:13:41 PM vadmblackthorne: Yes, I had assumed when we returned to Federation space.
8:14:15 PM majdougmcknight: ::Draws said phaser as he waits for the hatch to open::

8:17:53 PM majdougmcknight: ::Gestures to his men to lower their weapons slightly, but keep them ready:: Sorry, ensign. We're all a little jumpy around here. Not to mention curious as to how a lone shuttle travels out all this way through hostile space
8:17:58 PM majdougmcknight: without a scratch.
8:18:30 PM majdougmcknight: ::Turns to one of the marines with a tricorder, and nods to Mordonnon's bags:: Give 'em a quick scan.
8:18:54 PM vadmblackthorne: +Shelev+ Blackthorne to Shelev.
8:19:37 PM cmdrshelev: +Blackthorne+ Shelev
8:19:54 PM vadmblackthorne: +Shelev+ Found anything out about that shuttle?
8:20:37 PM zmordonnon: :::waits for a sign:::>Well...that's where dry ice....and fireworks come in handy. Diversionary tactics...
8:21:26 PM zmordonnon: >Uh...and wouldn't say without a scratch...the Roger has blast scars to prove it
8:21:37 PM zmordonnon: >I just fly REALLY well.
8:22:06 PM cmdrshelev: Resend: +Blackthorne+ They don't use federation standard anything. They also don't store anything in the computers. We have a flight recorder, but it only has what we already know in it.
8:22:46 PM cmdrshelev: +Blackthorne+ It's built like a tank, though. I'll give em that.
8:22:56 PM vadmblackthorne: +Shelev+ Any idea how to fly it?
8:23:12 PM cmdrshelev: ::Looks at the bin containing the broken control panel.::
8:23:21 PM cmdrshelev: +Blackthorne+ Maybe.
8:24:03 PM majdougmcknight: ::Gets the negative shake of the head from his scanner, and gestures to his men to lower their weapons entirely:: Then I imagine we should find a place for you soon enough.
8:24:06 PM majdougmcknight: I suggest you report to the bridge, ASAP. Admiral Blackthorne's a little curious himself.
8:24:06 PM cmdrshelev: +Blackthorne+ We have an ODN harness wired into what used to be the control panel; if we put a federation one on top of it, someone can probably make it move.
8:24:15 PM vadmblackthorne: +Shelev+ That's the idea.
8:24:22 PM zmordonnon: ::::what the Marine will have scanned in the immediate carry sack is a quilt, first aid kit, and a frying pan:::
8:24:38 PM cmdrshelev: +Blackthorne+ I'll get someone right on it. Shelev out.
8:24:39 PM vadmblackthorne: +Shelev+ Keep me updated. Also, get on the horn and find out how the Xindi are dealing with the unrest that's going on regarding our prisoners.
8:25:26 PM zmordonnon: >ALL> Fair enough :::extending a hand::: Nice to meet you Major ? ::raising an eyebrow::
8:26:44 PM majdougmcknight: ::Takes it:: McKnight. Now if you'll excuse me, I have some guests to attend to. Welcome aboard.
8:27:18 PM cmdrshelev: Tapir, go get a standard shuttle helm and patch it into that harness. I want it flyable.
8:27:38 PM majdougmcknight: ::With that, turns and exits the shuttlebay, marines in tow, before turning back at the last moment:: Uh...you need any help with that gear, ensign?
8:27:39 PM zmordonnon: >McKnight> Marines with guests....I KNOW what that means carry on Major, I will find my way around.
8:27:46 PM cmdrshelev: Lt. Tapir> It WAS flyable.
8:28:10 PM lcdrtkirr: <<I feel sorry for your NPC's name, Shelev =P>>
8:28:16 PM majdougmcknight: (lmao)
8:28:42 PM majdougmcknight: ::Nods, and exits, the marines returning to deck patrol::
8:28:47 PM cmdrshelev: (( Well, I grabbed the first thing on my screen that looked like a vaguely pronoucable name ))
8:28:57 PM cmdrshelev: (( Spelling etc etc ))

8:32:05 PM majdougmcknight: +Blackthorne+ I've just come from the shuttlebay, sir. Near as I can figure, the new guy's legit. As for how he's not space dust by now, he's either very good, very lucky, or both.
8:32:34 PM vadmblackthorne: +McKnight+ Thank you, Major. I'm holding you responsible if he turns into a face-sucking chestburster.

8:36:53 PM kileyairell: ::stiffles a laugh at the Admiral's intro::
8:37:40 PM vadmblackthorne: Wise. So, tell me how you made it out here? We're deep in enemy territory, isolated from the Federation. Did you at least bring the mail?
8:38:08 PM zmordonnon: >Blackthorne> Thank you sir...that is kind of a laundry list of positions.
8:38:31 PM zmordonnon: >Would NOT have come without Mail...
8:39:14 PM vadmblackthorne: Quite courteous of you, then. Station please.
8:39:47 PM vadmblackthorne: Counselor, please schedule a psych eval for the Ensign here, and since we're short on doctors, a physical.

8:50:16 PM lcdrtkirr: ::ignorantly lets the proclamation pass, having no idea what Circe is::
8:50:46 PM lcdrtkirr: Maybe a few of us could right logs or something.
8:50:46 PM cmdrshelev: Also because the Admiral will be steaming drunk at precisely 7:30PM.
8:50:52 PM zmordonnon: Legendary Siren....lures sailors to their death....
8:50:56 PM vadmblackthorne: More like 7:15.
8:51:19 PM cmdrshelev: This is a business trip. I'm accounting for the fact that they'll be serving weak stuff after last year.
8:51:32 PM vadmblackthorne: But yes, in this two weeks between sims, I would love to see some logs!
8:51:46 PM kileyairell: You'd ALWAYS love to see some logs
8:51:58 PM vadmblackthorne: That's true.
