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.

7:09:27 PM vadmblackthorne: BEGINS IM

7:09:29 PM vadmblackthorne: BEGIN SIM

7:09:30 PM vadmblackthorne: BEGIN SIM

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.

7:39:09 PM kileyairell: ::prepares the quarentine field::+TKirr+ Airell to TKirr, ready for transport here.

7:39:22 PM lcdrtkirr: +Airell+ Transport commencing.

7:39:41 PM lcdrtkirr: ::beams the designated organic sample from the ship::

7:39:49 PM cmdrshelev: (( Going to halt for a few minutes to see if McKnight comes back ))

7:40:15 PM vadmblackthorne: ::sits back down and picks up a PADD to read, then realizes what's on it and puts it back down::

7:40:54 PM majdougmcknight: (Lost my darn connection.  Thanks.)

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.

7:44:17 PM majdougmcknight: ::Turns to the transporter chief::  Energize.

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>>

7:46:16 PM cmdrshelev: Sergeant> ... clear.

7:46:44 PM kileyairell: Med Team>::heads to the transporter room::

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::

7:49:13 PM cmdrshelev: ((They weren't forgotten just very very sleepy))

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.
