7:03:02 PM lcdrtkirr: Greetings, Admiral.
7:03:08 PM vadmblackthorne: Evening folks.
7:03:31 PM kileyairell: Hey Admiral
7:03:49 PM kileyairell: I'm exhausted, but I'm here . . .
7:03:58 PM vadmblackthorne: Alright!!
7:04:24 PM majdougmcknight: About the same. If I suddenly seem to dissapear, I've probably dozed off.
7:05:04 PM vadmblackthorne: Pretty tired myself.
7:05:48 PM majdougmcknight: Ah.
7:06:02 PM lcdrtkirr: Been up for uh.. 21hrs =P
7:06:16 PM vadmblackthorne: Well then, let's get started so everyone can go to bed sooner. :D
7:06:35 PM kileyairell: yeah
7:06:41 PM lcdrtkirr: Or just because it's good to start on time once in a while. =)
7:06:46 PM vadmblackthorne: True that.
7:06:50 PM cmdrshelev: ::TWEEEET:: HURRY UP\
7:06:55 PM lcdrtkirr: ::AA::!!
7:07:00 PM majdougmcknight: ::AA::
7:08:03 PM vadmblackthorne: Alright, tonight we have a hatchery ship that has suddenly decided everything and everyone is a threat to the young it protects, and a still missing Xindi leader hidden somewhere on an uncooperatively crewed ship.
7:08:05 PM vadmblackthorne: Questions?
7:08:34 PM lcdrtkirr: Nada.
7:08:37 PM cmdrshelev: How many marines do I get this week
7:08:50 PM vadmblackthorne: However many McKnight decides to send over.
7:08:54 PM vadmblackthorne: T'Kirr?
7:09:03 PM lcdrtkirr: Nada means 'no'.
7:09:13 PM lcdrtkirr: None, rather.
7:09:20 PM vadmblackthorne: Oh, didn't see you clearly and thought you said, ::Nods::
7:09:26 PM vadmblackthorne: Okay then.

7:09:43 PM vadmblackthorne: ::on the bridge watching the situation unfold on two fronts::
7:10:09 PM kileyairell: ::sitting on the bridge::
7:10:43 PM lcdrtkirr: ::stands in her usual position, gazing down at her readings::
7:11:30 PM cmdrshelev: +McKnight+ McKnight, Shelev. What can you spare to tear apart a small to medium sized ship, five decks, one cargo bay full of refugees?
7:11:32 PM vadmblackthorne: T'Kirr, that unknown compound on the hatchery ship... could it be some sort of infection?
7:11:43 PM lcdrtkirr: Possibly.
7:12:11 PM vadmblackthorne: If so, there would be a bioimmune response, yes?
7:12:37 PM lcdrtkirr: ::nods, staring sideways in thought as she begins to catch on:: I'll see what I can find.
7:13:09 PM cmdrshelev: ::To marines accompanying him on the bridge:: Tie those guys up and lock them in the closet. We need this bridge secured.
7:13:11 PM vadmblackthorne: Excellent.
7:13:23 PM lcdrtkirr: ::begins tapping away, cluttering her corner of the bridge with beeps::
7:13:42 PM majdougmcknight: +Shelev+ Commander, McKnight here. As of right now, I've got 2 dozen men standing by in the various transporter rooms? Is this number sufficient, given your analysis of the reception we'll be getting over there?
7:13:49 PM vadmblackthorne: Dr. Airell, assist her if you can since that's your area of expertise.
7:14:03 PM kileyairell: ::stands up and moves over to TKirr::
7:14:05 PM lcdrtkirr: ::opens her mouth, then closes it, as Blackthorne already asks::
7:14:18 PM cmdrshelev: +McKnight+ Should be more than. Let me secure a transporter room.
7:15:06 PM cmdrshelev: ::The marines finish binding the unconcious xindi and lock them in what would probably be a captains ready room after sweeping it for holdout weapons.::
7:15:36 PM lcdrtkirr: ::works quietly, pointing and speaking softly to Airell occasionally::
7:15:58 PM vadmblackthorne: ::sits back down and idly wonders if the Xindi can form a coherent government after we drop them off::
7:17:10 PM cmdrshelev: OK, We're going down the hall right outside the main door. There's an emergency duct about fifteen meters down that drops down a deck.
7:17:21 PM cmdrshelev: Then another twenty meters to the nearest transporter room.
7:17:25 PM cmdrshelev: Any objections?
7:17:45 PM majdougmcknight: +Shelev+ Any open space in sufficient quantity should do, Commander. We'll await your signal. McKnight out.
7:18:07 PM cmdrshelev: You heard the man. We need open space, that's the room.
7:18:44 PM cmdrshelev: ::Pulls out his phaser, transforming into the least threatening humanoid on the ship save for the unconcious ones.::
7:18:59 PM vadmblackthorne: ::thinks about the sorts of things COs think about while people are carrying out their orders::
7:19:07 PM lcdrtkirr: <<lol>>
7:19:11 PM cmdrshelev: Breach.
7:19:36 PM cmdrshelev: ::The Marines pop open the door and fire two shots down the hall. There's no one there.::
7:19:52 PM kileyairell: Admiral, we've analyzed what we can. There appears to be a good possibility that there is some kind of infection. However, we'l need someone to go over there and get a sample to find a solution/cure.
7:20:16 PM cmdrshelev: Huh. Gunfire probably scared em all off. Let's go.
7:20:17 PM lcdrtkirr: ::interjects:: If it is indeed an infection.
7:20:48 PM lcdrtkirr: <<::imagines Xindi scampering away into dark recesses::>>
7:21:37 PM vadmblackthorne: Can we just transport a bit of it over here? I'm loathe to risk any more Marines on that deathtrap.
7:21:49 PM kileyairell: ::looks to TKirr and grins:: I did say that it was only a possibility
7:22:00 PM lcdrtkirr: ::looks at Kiley::
7:22:36 PM kileyairell: I would not reccommend it Admiral.
7:22:45 PM vadmblackthorne: Then again, my previous solution might still have merit. Simply stop towing the thing and see who complains.
7:22:58 PM cmdrshelev: ::The away team covers the ground to the hatch quickly and breach it. The clicking sound of a Xindi insectoid going WTF is heard fading away as it heads down a tube.::
7:23:06 PM vadmblackthorne: ((Ahahaha)
7:23:14 PM lcdrtkirr: <<rofl>>
7:24:00 PM cmdrshelev: Would be nice if those were the only heros on this bucket. Lead on.
7:24:25 PM lcdrtkirr: We cannot know what sort of reaction transporting material directly from the ship's structure may cause.
7:24:49 PM cmdrshelev: ::The Marine sergeant slides down the ladder, followed by his four charges. Shelev tries to slide down, panics half way, and climbs the rest of the way down.::
7:25:34 PM vadmblackthorne: ::is half tempted to blast the thing to hell and forget about it::
7:25:58 PM cmdrshelev: Sergeant> Wait on me. There's noise in this hall.
7:26:04 PM lcdrtkirr: <<Admiral's Log... the thing suddenly exploded, and we have no idea as to why...>>
7:26:12 PM vadmblackthorne: ((Exactly.))
7:26:17 PM vadmblackthorne: Major.
7:26:45 PM vadmblackthorne: ((No, we aren't missing a quantum torpedo from our armory, it's right there on the electronic record.))
7:26:59 PM majdougmcknight: (lmao, gotta love the classics.)
7:27:03 PM lcdrtkirr: <<Mice took it.>>
7:27:26 PM majdougmcknight: (And...Major? If you mean McKnight, he's in the transporter room.)
7:27:28 PM vadmblackthorne: ::stands and walks to tactical::
7:27:36 PM vadmblackthorne: ((Crap, pay attention.))
7:27:49 PM lcdrtkirr: <<You meant major decision /nod>>
7:27:51 PM vadmblackthorne: ::doesn't do or say any of that::
7:28:24 PM cmdrshelev: ::The marines breach the door. Behind it are about a dozen assorted Xindi with guns pointed at the door, and a lone Xindi insectoid making a house of cards in the corner.::
7:28:36 PM vadmblackthorne: Acceptable risk, Commander. Try to figure out what would be the least harmful to beam over, probably something off the ship's skin, and do it. I'm not risking more Marines.
7:29:05 PM lcdrtkirr: ::shares another look with Kiley, and begins pouring over the readings in front of them::
7:30:05 PM majdougmcknight: (Aw man, a house of cards? Shelev couldn't wait a minute to lay down the law?)
7:30:10 PM cmdrshelev: Seargent> Drop your weapons! ::The other four marines pile into the room and take up a tactical position. There are eight guns on their side and five on ours. The house of cards shudders unnervingly.::
7:30:38 PM vadmblackthorne: ((Oooo, tension.))
7:30:52 PM cmdrshelev: ((THIS SHIP AINT BIG ENOUGH FOR THE 5+9 OF US))
7:31:01 PM kileyairell: ::looks to TKirr and raises her eyebrows for a second, looks at the data. Then points to one part of the ship:: That's probably the best area.
7:31:10 PM majdougmcknight: (Don't forget, 4 of those 5 are wearing plot device body armor.)
7:31:17 PM lcdrtkirr: ::quietly to Kiley:: These coordinates are as good as any other.
7:31:20 PM cmdrshelev: ((true))
7:31:35 PM vadmblackthorne: ACTION> A tumbleweed blows through the room.
7:32:41 PM cmdrshelev: ::The Xindi don't drop their weapons. The Marines fire and stun the five they were aiming at. The remaining three Xindi fire a split second later and hit the wall twice and one of the Marines in the arm.::
7:32:59 PM vadmblackthorne: Of course, quarantine the sample.
7:33:04 PM lcdrtkirr: <<Amazing the effect an insectoid-child Hamsterball and overactive vents can do>>
7:33:15 PM cmdrshelev: ::The house of cards remains standing.::
7:33:49 PM cmdrshelev: ::The marine that got hit drops his weapon and his arm shakes uncontrollably.::
7:33:52 PM lcdrtkirr: ::proceeds with the quarantining and the beaming::
7:34:02 PM kileyairell: TKirr, you want to prepare to beam the sample over, while I go set up a containment area?
7:34:13 PM lcdrtkirr: ::nods::
7:34:28 PM cmdrshelev: Sergeant> Townsend, return to base. At least their weapons aren't lethal.
7:34:57 PM cmdrshelev: +Transporter room+ Transporter room, please beam Private Townsend back to the Atlantis with an injury.
7:35:52 PM cmdrshelev: ::Shelev looks at the Xindi insectoid sitting next to the card house.:: Tagan?
7:35:59 PM majdougmcknight: ::Frowns and motions for the marines to bunch up along the wall, so as to make room.
7:36:27 PM kileyairell: ::heads to sickbay::
7:36:56 PM cmdrshelev: ::Townsend is beamed out. The Xindi shakes his head and looks back at its card house.::
7:37:03 PM lcdrtkirr: <<Ack, my IM window won't stop blinking>>
MajDougMcKnight left the chat. (7:37:06 PM)
7:37:22 PM cmdrshelev: Sergeant> Should we restrain him, sir?
7:38:19 PM cmdrshelev: He's not hurting anything. ::Pops tricorder.:: Transporter room other side of the door next to him. Let's claim it.
7:38:35 PM cmdrshelev: Segeant> Holman, cover the bug. Rest of you, on me.

7:41:08 PM majdougmcknight: (So, how about that transporter room?)
7:41:15 PM cmdrshelev: (( was waiting for you ))
7:41:40 PM majdougmcknight: (Ah, good man. So...did it leave off with Shelev sending the wounded man over?)
7:41:45 PM kileyairell: ::starts a scan on the stuff that was transported over::
7:42:16 PM cmdrshelev: (( Yes. We're about to breach the last door to the room ))
7:42:55 PM lcdrtkirr: ::concentrates scans on the misbehaving Xindi vessel, watching for any response::
7:43:44 PM cmdrshelev: ::Private Holman aims his rifle at the Xindi bug, who looks at him once. ::
7:43:51 PM cmdrshelev: ::The bug grabs a card off the deck, secretes someting off of its mouth, rubs the card against it and sticks it on the side of the card house, sticking out at a 45 degree angle.::
7:44:00 PM majdougmcknight: ::Frowns and motions for the marines to bunch up, making room, but at least notes Shelev's voice seemed relatively calm.:: +Sickbay+ McKnight to sickbay. Dispatch a med team to transporter room one.

7:44:40 PM cmdrshelev: Sergeant> ... ok, breach.
7:44:46 PM majdougmcknight: (Hey, that's cheating! And also, gross.)
7:45:04 PM cmdrshelev: (( it's only cheating by earth rules ))
7:45:14 PM vadmblackthorne: ((He has a point.))
7:45:18 PM lcdrtkirr: <<I bet theirs have to hold up stuff>>
7:45:19 PM kileyairell: +McKnight+ They are on the way. You couldn't just transport to sickbay, eh?
7:45:55 PM cmdrshelev: ::The door opens and... there's nothing. Just a passed out Xindi humanoid surrounded by empty bottles.::
7:46:10 PM lcdrtkirr: <<LOL>>

7:47:10 PM cmdrshelev: +McKnight+ Transporter room on deck 2 is clear. Mind the drunk and the bug playing cards.
7:47:36 PM vadmblackthorne: ::listening in on the radio chatter and raises his eyebrows::
7:47:39 PM cmdrshelev: +McKnight+ Hell, beam the drunk out. He might know something.
7:47:40 PM majdougmcknight: +Shelev+ Uh...kay.
7:47:47 PM lcdrtkirr: ::looks up from her vigilant scans::
7:48:54 PM majdougmcknight: ::Orders that one beamed directly to C&C, where a holding cell awaits, next to those Machen Bren we've just about forgotten about::

7:49:14 PM vadmblackthorne: ((I am renaming our Brig as Guantanamo Bay))
7:49:49 PM majdougmcknight: (Works for me.)
7:49:53 PM kileyairell: +Blackthorne+ Airell to Admiral Blackthorne, got an update for you sir.
7:50:01 PM vadmblackthorne: +Airell+ Blackthorne here, go ahead.
7:50:59 PM majdougmcknight: ::Waits for Private Whatshisname to be taken to sickbay, then steps up onto the transporter platform, preparing to head over in the first group:: Energize.
7:51:18 PM cmdrshelev: ::Shelev goes into the other room while he waits for the reinforcements. The bug places a flat piece of metal on top of the card house, turning it into a very disgusting and utilitarian table.::
7:51:31 PM kileyairell: +Blackthorne+ The material that was transported over definitely is an infection.
7:51:32 PM lcdrtkirr: <<hahaha>>
7:52:02 PM vadmblackthorne: +Airell+ Alright, start working on something to cure it.
7:52:25 PM vadmblackthorne: +Airell+ I'll see if I can locate something approximating a doctor from their side to help out.
7:53:02 PM cmdrshelev: ::Shelev pops out his tricorder and calls up a picture of Tagan. He shows it to the bug, which nods sagely, as far as bugs can be sagely.::
7:53:28 PM kileyairell: +Blackthorne+ That may end up making things worse Sir.
7:53:39 PM vadmblackthorne: +Airell+ Curing it or having a Xindi doctor to work with?
7:54:02 PM lcdrtkirr: ::eyes frown as she listens::
7:54:45 PM cmdrshelev: ::The bug reaches over and grabs an empty can. It puts the can in one of the bottom leftmost holes in his house of cards and points at it.::
7:54:49 PM kileyairell: +Airell+ Having the Zindi Doc. I've talked to some of them and sometimes it seems I'd be better off dealing with a Marine
7:55:25 PM vadmblackthorne: +Airell+ Alright, I'll leave you to it. Continue working with Commander T'Kirr, though. I'm sure she's more useful than a Xindi doctor.
7:55:29 PM vadmblackthorne: ::winks at T'Kirr::
7:55:44 PM lcdrtkirr: ::perks a brow at him::
7:55:51 PM cmdrshelev: +McKnight+ McKnight, Shelev. I think he's on deck five.
7:55:52 PM kileyairell: +Blackthorne+::chuckles:: Aye sir.
7:56:11 PM vadmblackthorne: +Airell+ Blackthorne out.
7:56:23 PM vadmblackthorne: Commander T'Kirr, can you tell if the Xindi young are infected by this?
7:56:54 PM majdougmcknight: @::Entering the room physically and coming up behinf Shelev in time to not need the comm badge:: Aye, sir. I'll lead the search of that deck myself.
7:56:59 PM majdougmcknight: (behind)
7:57:05 PM lcdrtkirr: Perhaps. I would have more success after I get clearer readings on what we have in quarantine.
7:57:24 PM vadmblackthorne: Alright, do what you can.
7:57:36 PM majdougmcknight: @::Looking curiously at the card house:: Do I even want to know how the hell he's keeping that thing up under that weight?
7:57:50 PM cmdrshelev: ::Shelev jumps at McKnight's voice and stumbles backwards, trying not to crush the house of cards, as doing so would be a) disgusting, and b) probably start a war::

7:58:19 PM cmdrshelev: No. No you don't. But it has five levels, the ship has five decks, and he stuck that can on the fifth row after I showed him a picture of Tagan.
7:58:49 PM kileyairell: ::sends the latest scans to TKirr::
7:59:09 PM lcdrtkirr: ::is alerted to her console's 'You've Got Mail!' and opens up the data::
8:00:01 PM majdougmcknight: I take it the accuracy of that thing doesn't extend to rooms?
8:00:37 PM cmdrshelev: What, does it look like I speak house of cards?
8:01:09 PM lcdrtkirr: ::to Blackthorne:: If I may inquire of you, sir?
8:01:10 PM cmdrshelev: If I had to guess, it's two rooms in from the aft or the stern.
8:01:15 PM vadmblackthorne: Commander?
8:01:24 PM lcdrtkirr: What interests you about whether or not the young are infected?
8:02:00 PM vadmblackthorne: They need a fair start when they get to their new home. Those young will be the first generation born to them when they get there.
8:02:33 PM vadmblackthorne: I want to be sure they live
8:03:19 PM lcdrtkirr: ::nods once, understanding, yet curiousity not entirely sated, and begins interlacing the new data into the next scans of the rogue vessel::
8:03:45 PM majdougmcknight: ::Nods:: I'll take 6 men with me. If they went to the trouble of detaining him, they may be determined to keep him. And your instructions if they do prove uncooperative?
8:03:50 PM vadmblackthorne: If we can cure it, then it doesn't matter if they're infected. If we can't, then we'll have to move them elsewhere.
8:04:42 PM cmdrshelev: Knock them out and stuff them in a closet. It worked for the ones upstairs.
8:05:19 PM lcdrtkirr: ::starts interpreting her new readings of the hatchery area::
8:08:25 PM kileyairell: ::thinks she at least has an idea of the type of thing she is dealing with::
8:08:33 PM majdougmcknight: ::Nods:: I like it. Maximum stun it is. I recommed deploying 4 men to sweep the other decks for any more surprises. That'll leave...7 to secure the refugee bay, 2 for the bridge.
