7:32:01 PM vadmblackthorne: Evening!
7:32:08 PM kileyairell: Hey J
7:32:33 PM kileyairell: This'll prolly be my last day I'll be able to attend until at least Dec
7:32:42 PM vadmblackthorne: :(
7:32:47 PM kileyairell: I know
7:32:50 PM kileyairell: I'm not thrilled about it
7:33:11 PM lcdrtkirr: Hey, glad to see you here.
7:33:43 PM lcdrtkirr: McKnight sent me an IM earlier saying he's very sorry, but he can't make it tonight.
7:33:55 PM kileyairell: Stupid training for my new job
7:34:00 PM cmdrshelev: uh oh
7:34:02 PM lcdrtkirr: Behind in his work, or something.
7:34:59 PM vadmblackthorne: Okay, well, we have five, we can cobble together something.
7:35:14 PM lcdrtkirr: Did something happen last week?
7:35:55 PM vadmblackthorne: No, Shelev and I were traveling on business.
7:36:23 PM cmdrshelev: and the admiral was drunk
7:36:45 PM vadmblackthorne: Not by 7:30. Now, by 10:30, yes, yes I was.
7:37:14 PM cmdrshelev: oh yah that was the night with the weak sauce
7:37:16 PM lcdrtkirr: I see the info now... can't believe I forgot. :-\
7:37:29 PM vadmblackthorne: Okay, let's get this started. Commander?
7:37:39 PM cmdrshelev: ::TWEEEET::
7:37:43 PM kileyairell: ::AA::
7:37:43 PM lcdrtkirr: ::AA::
7:37:57 PM cmdrshelev: ((I'm on VNC so I can't write a very long tweet =/ >>
7:38:45 PM vadmblackthorne: Okay, we're still trying to get the captured Machen Bren shuttle up and running, while dealing with the fact that we're going to have to slow waaaaaaaaaay down soon because of some Xindi warp cores that need to cool down a bit.
7:39:10 PM zmordonnon: :::AA:::
7:39:29 PM vadmblackthorne: Question?
7:39:41 PM kileyairell: ((VCN?))
7:39:56 PM cmdrshelev: ((like remote desktop but slower))
7:40:19 PM vadmblackthorne: Okay then.

7:41:26 PM kileyairell: ::on the bridge::
7:41:29 PM zmordonnon: ::::at helm, going over calculations::::
7:42:18 PM lcdrtkirr: <<Grr.. hard to concentrate with the friggin' TV on>>
7:42:40 PM cmdrshelev: ((liar. we're watching night court and simming at the same time))
7:42:41 PM vadmblackthorne: ::to Zel:: Ensign, I need harder estimates from the Xindi fleet on when we'll have to... rest.
7:43:09 PM vadmblackthorne: ::almost spits out that word::
7:43:17 PM cmdrshelev: Computer, where is commander T'Kirr?
7:43:58 PM zmordonnon: >Blackthorne> I will get on their backsides Sir....::::COMMING over the Xindi fleet::::
7:44:24 PM lcdrtkirr: Computer> Lieutenant Commander T'Kirr is in the Assault Bay.
7:44:59 PM cmdrshelev: ::Pulls the cracked half of the Machen Bren console out of the bin of trash and heads for the Assault Bay::
7:45:35 PM vadmblackthorne: ::waits, tapping his fingers, wanting a cigar::
7:47:00 PM zmordonnon: >Blackthorne> Their latest estimates are 5hours up, 1 hour down....Sir....I don't know what their engineers are like, but they aren't Starfleet.
7:47:45 PM kileyairell: If they were starfleet, we wouldn't need to be here in the first place.
7:47:49 PM vadmblackthorne: That's for damn sure.
7:48:13 PM kileyairell: I think we're all going to need a nice long shoreleave after this mission . . .
7:48:30 PM cmdrshelev: ::Enters assault bay:: Commander T'Kirr?
7:48:58 PM zmordonnon: :::nodding:::Aye Sir....::::turning to his console and programming in a few of his own evasive manuevers::::
7:49:19 PM lcdrtkirr: ::tapping on a PADD, walks from around a pile of parts:: Commander Shelev.
7:49:51 PM cmdrshelev: How are you with languages?
7:50:42 PM lcdrtkirr: ::swings the padd around to rest behind her:: It depends on the language.
7:50:58 PM vadmblackthorne: Shoreleave, huh. You just had some.
7:51:03 PM vadmblackthorne: ::grins::
7:51:24 PM cmdrshelev: Do you know this one? ::Shows T'Kirr the broken console.::
7:51:47 PM zmordonnon: :::grinning at his OWN memories of his last Shoreleave:::::
7:51:57 PM kileyairell: ::laughs:: You saying you're not gonna want some shoreleave sir?
7:51:59 PM lcdrtkirr: ::looks at the panel carefully::
7:52:08 PM vadmblackthorne: I wouldn't turn it down.
7:52:12 PM zmordonnon: :::rather GLAD to be flying again::::
7:52:45 PM kileyairell: Somehow I didn't think you would . . .
7:53:07 PM vadmblackthorne: Zel. Fleetwide announce, slow to warp two in fifteen minutes.
7:53:17 PM lcdrtkirr: I recognize it. I would need a little time to read it.
7:53:43 PM zmordonnon: >Blackthorne> Acknowledged Sir......::::turning on the COMM::::
7:54:27 PM cmdrshelev: So you've seen it, at least?
7:54:28 PM zmordonnon: +Fleetwide+ Orders from Vice Admiral Blackthorne....slow to warp two in 15 minutes
7:54:42 PM lcdrtkirr: Yes. ::still staring at panel::
7:55:40 PM cmdrshelev: Mind sharing where?
7:56:38 PM vadmblackthorne: ::checks long range sensors himself::
7:56:42 PM zmordonnon: :::programming the warp change for the Atlantis::::
7:57:36 PM lcdrtkirr: ::looks up finally:: Language is not my specialty. I believe it is a form of Orion, but I would need to study it further to be sure.
7:58:04 PM vadmblackthorne: Sensors are still clear, at least.
7:58:20 PM cmdrshelev: Well, take it. It's not like it's any use to us in its present shape.
7:59:00 PM lcdrtkirr: ::takes hold of the piece of console:: I'll begin working on it now.
7:59:13 PM cmdrshelev: ...Do you have any idea why the Machen Bren would have something Orion?
7:59:48 PM lcdrtkirr: ::curiously:: No... I'm afraid not.
8:00:29 PM lcdrtkirr: Where was this console located?
8:00:57 PM cmdrshelev: Up front, where our piloting gear is going.
8:01:08 PM cmdrshelev: So I assume it was used for that.
8:01:09 PM vadmblackthorne: Slow us down, Ensign.
8:01:55 PM zmordonnon: :::humming an old sailor's tune:::>Blackthorne> Already programmed Admiral...
8:02:07 PM vadmblackthorne: Execute.
8:02:08 PM lcdrtkirr: ::softly:: That would mean the pilot knew this language...
8:02:28 PM cmdrshelev: ...who is in the brig.
8:02:41 PM zmordonnon: >BlckThrn> Aye Sir.....::::pressing the appropriate buttons::::
8:03:19 PM lcdrtkirr: ::gazes meaningfully at Shelev:: I'll see what I can find out.
8:03:36 PM vadmblackthorne: Alright, back to being sitting ducks.
8:03:42 PM zmordonnon: ::::checking the monitor for the status of the rest of the Xindi fleet:::::
8:03:49 PM cmdrshelev: Alright, see what you can figure from that. And if you want to help get the shuttle moving, it's in the main cargo bay.
8:03:57 PM cmdrshelev: I'll be on the bridge; as you were.
8:04:16 PM lcdrtkirr: ::nods and looks again at the panel in her hand::
8:04:49 PM kileyairell: Any idea of how much longer till we are out of Mach Breen space?
8:05:04 PM cmdrshelev: ::Exits assault bay, heads for TL.::
8:05:30 PM vadmblackthorne: At least a week.
8:05:55 PM lcdrtkirr: ::stares at the panel a few moments more, memorizing the characters::
8:06:01 PM cmdrshelev: Bridge.
8:07:01 PM lcdrtkirr: ::takes a deep breath, then exits the bay and heads down the corridor toward the lift::
8:07:55 PM kileyairell: I'm sure that the starfleet personnel can handle it. I am worried about the Xindi though.
8:08:15 PM vadmblackthorne: It could be longer. Especially if we have to keep slowing down.
8:08:17 PM cmdrshelev: ::Exits TL onto bridge.::
8:08:31 PM cmdrshelev: Admiral, we have something.
8:08:43 PM lcdrtkirr: ::enters TL:: Deck six.
8:08:46 PM kileyairell: slower would not be advisable Admiral, though I"m sure you know that
8:08:53 PM kileyairell: ::looks up to the Commander::
8:08:54 PM vadmblackthorne: Yes, Commander?
8:09:09 PM cmdrshelev: T'Kirr says the writing on the inside of the shuttle is Orion.
8:09:13 PM lcdrtkirr: ::exits TL and enters Sci lab::
8:09:19 PM vadmblackthorne: Orion?
8:09:24 PM vadmblackthorne: Interesting.
8:09:30 PM cmdrshelev: As in the criminals.
8:09:45 PM cmdrshelev: As in, someone needs to ask the pilots down in the brig where they got it.
8:10:25 PM zmordonnon: ::::picking up a Xindi straggler::::>Blckthrn> One of the trailing Xindi ships is having further trouble, Sir...
8:10:33 PM vadmblackthorne: Can we communicate with them yet?
8:11:01 PM vadmblackthorne: :::looks to Zel: What sort of trouble?
8:11:05 PM cmdrshelev: McKnight tried, but they didn't talk.
8:11:10 PM lcdrtkirr: ::sets the panel on a counter and brings up the Orion language in the database::
8:11:39 PM vadmblackthorne: We can make them talk.
8:11:54 PM cmdrshelev: Guns or knives?
8:11:54 PM zmordonnon: >Blckthrn> I suspect engines Sir.....their speed is dipping and rising....
8:12:14 PM vadmblackthorne: Whatever it bloody takes.
8:12:35 PM vadmblackthorne: Zel, have the fleet slow so that they can get some engineers on that ship. We sure can't spare any.
8:12:38 PM kileyairell: maybe it needs a women's touch
8:13:41 PM zmordonnon: >Blckthrn> Aye Sir.....::::tuning into the LEAD Xindi ship and cluing them in as to what is happening::::
8:13:59 PM vadmblackthorne: Shelev, get Tagen on the horn and tell him that we'll provide any parts we can, but he's on his own for men.
8:14:08 PM cmdrshelev: Aye.
8:14:26 PM cmdrshelev: ::Heads to an aft console to hail Tagan::
8:16:32 PM cmdrshelev: ::A member of Tagan's delegation appears on the screen.:: Can we be of assistance, Commander?
8:17:20 PM cmdrshelev: Is Tagan busy?
8:17:29 PM vadmblackthorne: ::eyes the newcomer on the screen::
8:17:42 PM cmdrshelev: Delegate> He's indisposed at the moment.
8:17:48 PM kileyairell: ::looks at the screen::
8:18:13 PM cmdrshelev: Asleep? Off duty? Dead?
8:18:42 PM cmdrshelev: Delegate> ...Off duty would be the closest of the three.
8:18:57 PM vadmblackthorne: ::raises his eyebrows::
8:19:24 PM cmdrshelev: ::Shelev drops his head, wanting to bang it on the keyboard, but stops himself.::
8:19:37 PM kileyairell: ::tries not to sigh at that::
8:19:44 PM cmdrshelev: So I am to take it that you're running the fleet in his absence?
8:19:52 PM zmordonnon: :::grins as HIS Imagination takes over about what this Tagan could be doing::::\
8:19:54 PM lcdrtkirr: ::begins deciphering the words on the alien console with the aid of the computer::
8:20:19 PM cmdrshelev: Delegate> I will pass any messages you have onto the appropriate departments.
8:21:23 PM vadmblackthorne: ::smirks::
8:21:37 PM cmdrshelev: ...Fine. Tell Tagan and whoever is in charge of your engineers that we'll send whatever parts they need over, but as for men, you are on your own.
8:22:36 PM cmdrshelev: Delegate> ::Sigh.:: I was under the impression that we would have starfleet assistance in getting our ships repaired in the meantime.
8:24:35 PM cmdrshelev: With all due respect, our engineers are rather busy keeping this ship running after the warm welcome the Machen Bren gave us. If we lose Atlantis, we lose the fleet.
8:24:50 PM cmdrshelev: Have your engineers contact us with a parts manifest, and tell Tagan to contact us when he comes back from wherever it is he went. Clear?
8:24:57 PM vadmblackthorne: ::nods in approval, smirking::
8:25:18 PM zmordonnon: Yeoman Bleeth>::::enters the Bridge with a hovercart laden with Coffee carafes and various snack offerings:::
8:25:56 PM vadmblackthorne: Mmm. ::takes a cup of coffee::

8:26:14 PM vadmblackthorne: Thank you, Yeoman.
8:26:15 PM cmdrshelev: Delegate> Yes. Commander. Fleet One out. ::Blank display.::
8:26:30 PM cmdrshelev: ::Turns around.:: That went... lovely.
8:26:38 PM cmdrshelev: When did we get beverage service?
8:26:39 PM vadmblackthorne: They'll live.
8:26:44 PM zmordonnon: <<*I* KNOW how that would have looked....>>
8:27:11 PM zmordonnon: >Shelev> Since I became in charge of Operations....
8:27:30 PM vadmblackthorne: Now I'm just worried about getting attacked while we're sitting here. ::sips at the coffee, wishing for a cigar to go with it... or some irish whiskey::
8:27:39 PM zmordonnon: >Surprised no one have thought of it before....
8:28:24 PM cmdrshelev: We're not complaining. ::Pulls a cup of water.::
8:28:30 PM vadmblackthorne: Mm, not at all.

8:28:42 PM kileyairell: ::doesn't take anything::

8:29:33 PM zmordonnon: ((10 minutes))
8:29:42 PM cmdrshelev: ((short flight))
8:30:17 PM vadmblackthorne: Zel, get the Xindi war fleet in a wider perimeter.
