7:01:57 PM vadmblackthorne: Hi folks

7:02:47 PM lcdrtkirr: Hiya

7:03:45 PM vadmblackthorne: I've somehow trained my brain to wake me up from naps for Atlantis.

7:05:03 PM lcdrtkirr: Mm... if only Kiley and McKnight would, too.

7:05:58 PM vadmblackthorne: Heh, yep.

7:07:06 PM vadmblackthorne: Got McKnight.

7:07:14 PM vadmblackthorne: T'Kirr, mind calling Kiley and waking her up?

7:07:16 PM lcdrtkirr: Kay... I'll call Kiley.

7:07:34 PM cmdrshelev: what did I miss while I was out

7:08:05 PM cmdrshelev: and am I still NPCing the secessionist president

7:08:15 PM vadmblackthorne: Dugahn was caught snooping but smoothed it over, Blackthorne actually had his physical, and some drama between T'Kirr and Blackthorne.

7:08:17 PM misterboxingbear: Sorry, in the middle of something.  I'll have to use this name for a bit.

7:09:59 PM vadmblackthorne: Hiya McKnight

7:11:00 PM lcdrtkirr: Left a message for Kiley...

7:11:15 PM lcdrtkirr: "Doctor, wake uuup.  Doctor, wake uuup!"

7:12:09 PM vadmblackthorne: Hahaha.

7:12:37 PM lcdrtkirr: Btw, I didn't notice anyone calling ME last week... =/

7:13:20 PM vadmblackthorne: I've lost everyone's number again. :v:

7:13:22 PM misterboxingbear: I can't remember where I put your number.

7:13:35 PM lcdrtkirr: Omg, try your cell phone. >_<

7:13:43 PM lcdrtkirr: Bad boys... tsk tsk...

7:13:58 PM lcdrtkirr: I mean, really, how can you loose a girl's number.  Honestly.

7:14:22 PM vadmblackthorne: I could see getting your husband on the phone. "Hi, this is a guy from the internet. Your wife is supposed to be in a chatroom with us pretending to play Star Trek."

7:14:52 PM lcdrtkirr: As if he doesn't know

7:15:20 PM vadmblackthorne: Heh, it'd just be odd explaining it

7:15:47 PM lcdrtkirr: Oh well, no Kiley, I guess.

7:15:57 PM cmdrshelev: lol failure

7:16:35 PM cmdrshelev: tkirr why are you showing up in ichat with a video camera

7:16:43 PM lcdrtkirr: I dunno.. what's ichat

7:17:10 PM lcdrtkirr: I have a cam on My computer... but it's broken atm and I don't know how to fix it.  I'm on my husband's 'puter.

7:17:27 PM lcdrtkirr: Have been for several weeks now... *sigh*

7:19:03 PM lcdrtkirr: !

7:19:14 PM vadmblackthorne: Shelev's router shat itself

7:19:15 PM cmdrshelev: how do i shat router

7:19:34 PM cmdrshelev: $19.99 router rools

7:19:53 PM cmdrshelev: pinh

7:19:55 PM cmdrshelev: ping

7:21:00 PM lcdrtkirr: "Paging Dr. Airell.... Paging Dr. Airell...."

7:21:14 PM cmdrshelev: tkirr why are you showing up with a video camera in ichat

7:21:28 PM lcdrtkirr: ...So you missed my response, huh.

7:21:31 PM cmdrshelev: yes

7:21:36 PM lcdrtkirr: I don't know.

7:21:36 PM cmdrshelev: router, shat self, it has

7:21:51 PM cmdrshelev: I am going to click on it and see if my router bursts into flames again

7:21:52 PM lcdrtkirr: This comp doesn't have a cam

7:22:33 PM lcdrtkirr: An unknown failure occurred!

7:22:35 PM cmdrshelev: lols

7:22:53 PM lcdrtkirr: Anyway.  Done yet, McKnight?

7:23:44 PM vadmblackthorne: Okay, we should get started if Shelev is stable.

7:24:12 PM vadmblackthorne: Well, if his connection is stable.

7:24:15 PM misterboxingbear: Sadly, no.  I'll switch accounts as soon as I'm able.

7:24:18 PM lcdrtkirr: Was gonna say.

7:24:20 PM cmdrshelev: sups

7:25:17 PM vadmblackthorne: Alright, tonight we're about to rendezvous with secessionist president Jacob Morris's ship. He's changed the plans and wishes to meet us ship to ship instead of face to face.

7:25:48 PM vadmblackthorne: Questions?

7:25:53 PM misterboxingbear: Nope.

7:26:03 PM lcdrtkirr: Paranoid one, that Morris.

7:26:03 PM vadmblackthorne: Alright then.

7:26:07 PM vadmblackthorne: BEGIN SIM

7:26:08 PM vadmblackthorne: BEGIN SIM

7:26:09 PM vadmblackthorne: BEGIN SIM

7:27:08 PM vadmblackthorne: ::walks onto the bridge from the ready room:: I have the bridge. ETA to rendezvous, Mr. McKnight?

7:27:20 PM lcdrtkirr: ::stands at her station on the Bridge, watching the Atlantis dot and the Morris ship dot get closer and closer together::

7:28:21 PM lcdrtkirr: Dugahn> ::waits patiently in the back of the Bridge until he can be useful::

7:28:47 PM misterboxingbear: We're doing the lion's share of the work in closing the distance, but at this speed, shouldn't be long now.  Ten minutes, barring engine trouble on their end.

7:28:57 PM cmdrshelev: ((that can be arranged))

7:30:41 PM vadmblackthorne: Alright. Fleetwide, yellow alert.

7:31:15 PM misterboxingbear: ::Frowns::  Yes, sir.  Yellow alert, raising shields.

7:34:31 PM vadmblackthorne: Drop from warp, approach at full impulse.

7:36:47 PM vadmblackthorne: ACTION> The fleet drops from warp and reaches the rendezvous point at impulse, then comes to a stop.

7:37:04 PM lcdrtkirr: Dugahn> ::straightens a little, anticipating Morris's transmission::

7:37:28 PM vadmblackthorne: All stop and station keeping.

7:37:56 PM vadmblackthorne: ::turns to T'Kirr and McKnight:: Watch those sensors like hawks.

7:38:06 PM lcdrtkirr: ::nods::

7:39:09 PM vadmblackthorne: ACTION> Morris's ship, a small freighter looking job, drops from warp and approaches the fleet, coming to a stop eye to eye with the fleet.

7:39:56 PM vadmblackthorne: Hailing frequencies.

7:40:05 PM misterboxingbear: Channel open.

7:41:05 PM vadmblackthorne: Mr. Morris, this is Vice Admiral Ian Blackthorne aboard the Atlantis.

7:42:25 PM lcdrtkirr: ::keeps her eyes to her scan readouts::

7:42:33 PM cmdrshelev: Mr. Blackthorne, this is Jacob Morris. Welcome to nowhere.

7:43:04 PM vadmblackthorne: ::glad to get a reply:: Love what you've done with the place.

7:44:41 PM cmdrshelev: And I'm the pope. Speaking in home analogies, the reason I'm out here is because you're obviously not to keen on the cardassians, and there happen to be a grand total of two on the planet.

7:45:07 PM misterboxingbear: ::While the leaders are talking, McKnight is conducting a low intensity scan of Morris' armaments.  He finds little to unsettle him::

7:45:14 PM vadmblackthorne: The venue is unimportant. What is important is to find resolution to this matter.

7:46:05 PM cmdrshelev: Right. What's on the table save for a podunk garrison to keep us little dilithium slaves in line?

7:46:56 PM vadmblackthorne: Well, I can likely arrange more than just a garrison for your protection. Perhaps Starfleet did not realize the severity of the situation out here.

7:47:53 PM cmdrshelev: I'm still waiting for you to describe the severity of the situation. We'd be doing fine if you'd let us do business as necessary rather than relying on federation handouts.

7:48:50 PM vadmblackthorne: Your apparent definition of doing business as necessary allows for precious resources to fall into enemy hands, Mr. Morris.

7:49:27 PM cmdrshelev: Oh, so we're at war now?

7:49:37 PM cmdrshelev: When is that newspaper coming?

7:49:48 PM vadmblackthorne: Not in an obvious sense. But you must be aware that some powers are friendlier than others.

7:51:23 PM cmdrshelev: We're good at judging friendlies and unfriendlies. You might be surprised as to who's on which list.

7:52:35 PM vadmblackthorne: We are willing to offer substantial additional protection to you, as Federation citizens, to ensure your safety and safe delivery of your product to us.

7:53:08 PM cmdrshelev: Let me tell you what I think would happen if you did that.

7:54:29 PM cmdrshelev: First, within maybe a year the bureaucratic wheels in the middle of the quadrant will decide that this is an excellent post for people they don't like.

7:55:15 PM cmdrshelev: There's nothing at all interesting out here save rocks. It's not exactly a glamorous post. Since you don't pay wages, there's really no incentive for the idiot political brats to do their damn job.

7:55:41 PM lcdrtkirr: ::keeps an ear to the conversation, but only glances up occassionally::

7:55:51 PM cmdrshelev: Second, the local powers - the ones that we're not at war with but god forbid they compensate us for our goods - would become very unhappy at increased federation activity in the area.

7:56:14 PM vadmblackthorne: ::listening::

7:56:34 PM cmdrshelev: So with just those two we're now nervous and miserable. Suppose the podunk brat politician you put in charge of this garrison forgets to turn off his microphone before insulting the cardies.

7:57:29 PM vadmblackthorne: That may well happen, Mr. Morris. But I guarantee you'd receive -

7:57:51 PM cmdrshelev: Now we have what is, to my ear, a really unpleasant set of business. The 'enemy' decides to take the planet by force, the federation garrison is overrun in hours.

7:58:01 PM cmdrshelev: Meanwhile it takes a month to get the real cavalry out here.

7:58:19 PM cmdrshelev: Now, what are you going to offer us instead, an amusement park?

8:00:01 PM vadmblackthorne: Despite your dark predictions, the 'enemy' would not wish to start a war with such an overt act.

8:00:10 PM vadmblackthorne: That is not their style.

8:00:24 PM vadmblackthorne: ACTION> A quantum torpedo lances out from the Atlantis's midsection and slams into Morris's ship, causing tremendous damage, cutting communication, and causing their ship to list horribly.

8:00:49 PM cmdrshelev: (( oh come on you can be more creative than that :( ))

8:01:01 PM lcdrtkirr: ::eyes wide, hands a flurry of motion across the Science panel::

8:01:02 PM vadmblackthorne: Major!

8:01:18 PM misterboxingbear: I didn't do a damn thing!

8:01:19 PM vadmblackthorne: Report!

8:01:31 PM cmdrshelev: Direct hit. Planned or unplanned.

8:01:33 PM vadmblackthorne: We just fired a bloody torpedo and you didn't do a damn thing?

8:01:56 PM cmdrshelev: ((oops just realized I forgot to prefix morris's diatribe, oh well you know what I meant))

8:02:12 PM vadmblackthorne: ((Yep, and there was nothing wrong with that torpedo blast :mad: ))

8:02:17 PM lcdrtkirr: Dugahn> ::looking alarmed, looks from one officer to another::

8:02:34 PM lcdrtkirr: <<yeah I thought it was quite creative >_< >>

8:02:45 PM cmdrshelev: Manually lock the torpedo tubes, sir?

8:02:47 PM misterboxingbear: I can throw in some technical jargon if you want!  I haven't input a firing solution or anything!  Targeting sensors haven't even been initialized!

8:03:13 PM misterboxingbear: Hell, we're on yellow alert!  The launcher shouldn't even have been receiving power!

8:03:18 PM vadmblackthorne: Major, secure that console and log everything from the past thirty minutes to redundant locations.

8:03:34 PM vadmblackthorne: Get me a damage report on that ship and re-establish the commlink!

8:04:10 PM vadmblackthorne: Computer, lock all weapon systems to my voiceprint only, authorization Blackthorne pi omega epsilon three.

8:04:25 PM cmdrshelev: We'd be better off beaming the survivors off the ship.

8:05:00 PM lcdrtkirr: ::glances up from mad scanning to catch Blackthorne's expression::

8:05:09 PM vadmblackthorne: How many aboard?

8:05:30 PM cmdrshelev: Ten by my count. One of them is hardly registering.

8:05:47 PM cmdrshelev: Their power is out entirely; we won't be getting comm back anytime soon.

8:05:48 PM vadmblackthorne: Beam them all directly to sickbay. Major, get a security detail down there.

8:05:54 PM cmdrshelev: Aye.

8:06:00 PM vadmblackthorne: Get a tractor on that ship and stabilize it.

8:06:13 PM cmdrshelev: +Transporter Room+ TR1, if there's anyone breathing and not on board Atlantis, beam them to sickbay.

8:06:31 PM cmdrshelev: Permission to leave the bridge to inspect the armory, sir.

8:06:45 PM vadmblackthorne: Yes, go count the bloody things, Commander.,

8:07:01 PM cmdrshelev: Aye. ::Runs into the TL::

8:07:12 PM cmdrshelev: Midship torpedo bay.

8:07:17 PM cmdrshelev: ::Doors close.::

8:07:21 PM misterboxingbear: Permission to join the security detail, sir.

8:07:43 PM vadmblackthorne: ::to T'Kirr:: Commander, all readings from the past half hour are to be logged, not just tactical. Preserve EVERYTHING.

8:08:02 PM lcdrtkirr: ::nods promptly::

8:08:25 PM vadmblackthorne: Extend that order to all five ships.

8:08:32 PM vadmblackthorne: I want to know what everyone knew.

8:09:44 PM vadmblackthorne: Granted, Major. I'm going down there too.

8:09:58 PM vadmblackthorne: I owe the man an explanation, if only I had one.

8:10:05 PM vadmblackthorne: T'Kirr, you have the bridge.

8:10:16 PM lcdrtkirr: Aye, sir.

8:10:51 PM misterboxingbear: ::Nods quickly, making a dash for the turbolift as he simultaneously comms security::  +O'Grady+ O'Grady, this is McKnight.  Meet me in transporter room 1 with 3 marines.  Hand phasers only.

8:10:54 PM lcdrtkirr: ::juggles several hails coming in from the fleet wanting to know what is happening::

8:11:04 PM vadmblackthorne: ::looks around:: Where is Dugahn?

8:11:27 PM lcdrtkirr: Dugahn> ::steps up from the back, having kept out of the way:: I'm right here, Admiral.

8:13:01 PM vadmblackthorne: Very well then.

8:13:05 PM vadmblackthorne: ::enters the TL:: Sickbay!

8:14:44 PM vadmblackthorne: ACTION> The ten crewmembers of Morris's ship appear in sickbay.

8:14:57 PM lcdrtkirr: Nolan> ::rushes around Sickbay, performing triage as directed::

8:14:57 PM vadmblackthorne: +Sickbay+ Incoming casualities!

8:16:08 PM cmdrshelev: ::Morris is upright, he appeared to be standing at a console when everything went pear-shaped. Eight others are wounded with minor burns but OK. The last is dead.::

8:16:14 PM misterboxingbear: Quinn> ::In main engineering, tuning out the commotion of running and shouting engineers, checking the power distribution log, attempting to determine how that launcher received power when it shouldn't have,

8:16:19 PM misterboxingbear: if that was indeed the case::

8:16:38 PM vadmblackthorne: ::runs into sickbay::

8:17:14 PM lcdrtkirr: Nolan> ::runs an instrument over a groaning man's facial burn::

8:17:39 PM cmdrshelev: Morris> WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT?

8:18:19 PM lcdrtkirr: Nolan> ::finishing with faceburnman, walks quickly up to Morris and starts scanning over him::

8:18:27 PM lcdrtkirr: Nolan> ::quietly:: Are you all right, sir?

8:18:37 PM vadmblackthorne: I assure you Mr. Morris, I am as confused about this as you are. Atlantis appears to have been sabotaged.

8:18:40 PM cmdrshelev: ::Morris reaches to his belt, but his sidearm is gone from the weapons detection in the transporter.::

8:18:40 PM misterboxingbear: ::Though this would technically fall under the definition of tactical assessment, elects to leave this one to the Admiral::


8:19:47 PM vadmblackthorne: Look, if I weren't telling the truth I wouldn't be trying to save you and your crew.

8:20:03 PM vadmblackthorne: I will have conclusive proof, but for now, you must trust me.

8:20:10 PM vadmblackthorne: ((Hi Kiley!))

8:20:42 PM vadmblackthorne: Besides, if I wanted to kill you, the job would have been finished, and you know it. That was sloppy and miscalculated.

8:20:53 PM lcdrtkirr: Nolan> ::seeing that he's not going to get an answer, finishes scanning Morris, seeing that he's well enough, moves on to another man::

8:21:38 PM kileyairell: ::takes a quick scan of the incoming patients and moves over to one that looks to be the most injured.  Quickly scans him to see what needs to be done::

8:21:40 PM cmdrshelev: ::Morris looks at his injured men and the dead crewman.:: You've got 48 hours. I won't be speaking to you again until you're either showing me whoever did this or dropping us off and leaving.

8:24:31 PM kileyairell: ::uses a hypo to inject a few drugs into the man, including pain killers, and then gets the dermal regenerator::

8:24:32 PM vadmblackthorne: I'm going to need more than that. Regardless, you'll be remaining here for your own protection.

8:25:02 PM cmdrshelev: Your ship blew up mine. Forgive me if I don't put trust in your protection.

8:25:50 PM vadmblackthorne: If I wanted to blow your ship up, Mr. Morris, you'd be dead. I have five starships versus yours.

8:25:57 PM lcdrtkirr: Dugahn> ::approaches T'Kirr's station:: Can I be of any assistance?

8:26:07 PM kileyairell: ::runs the machine over the burns::

8:27:05 PM misterboxingbear: Mr. Morris, your ship, as you say, IS blown up, and we're out in the middle of space, and last I checked, your closest ship is still a ways away.  Whoever's to blame for it, that's where we are.  Where are you going to go?

8:27:14 PM lcdrtkirr: ::shakes her head, only glancing at Dugahn, busy with her work:: No.  You can remain still and quiet while I do my duty.

8:27:21 PM cmdrshelev: Admiral, if it takes you more than 48 hours to prove that someone not under your command pulled the trigger, then you're damn sure not putting a garrison on our planet.

8:27:56 PM vadmblackthorne: You can be of help. Tell me who would have a vested interest in ensuring that these talks didn't end with a peaceful resolution?

8:29:36 PM kileyairell: ::moves on to the next patient and starts the whole routine over again::

8:29:45 PM cmdrshelev: My secretary of commerce, but he's lying dead on a bed over there.

8:32:25 PM kileyairell: ::injects the guy with meds and then runs the dermal generator over the burned areas::

8:32:29 PM vadmblackthorne: I am deeply sorry for this, and for your crewman. But gagging yourself for two days won't help get to the bottom of this. Regardless of what happened, we're the only hotel in town, and you're staying here, and you're going to be cooperative. Is that understood, Mr. Morris?

8:34:02 PM misterboxingbear: Mr. Morris, I know this may not mean much to you, but as Chief of security, the ship's armory is my responsibility, and I don't enjoy looking like an idiot.  I WILL find whoever did this.  You can count on that.

8:35:05 PM cmdrshelev: Well, seeing as how I'm at your mercy for the forseeable future, do you have any guest quarters?

8:35:18 PM vadmblackthorne: That's better. You will be given suitable quarters.

8:36:03 PM vadmblackthorne: ACTION> Two days pass as the fleet just sits there, a half blown up ship in tractor.

8:36:30 PM vadmblackthorne: ACTION> The episode continues with all five of us in a conference room with Morris.

8:38:24 PM kileyairell: ::magically goes from treating patients to the conference room::

8:38:35 PM vadmblackthorne: The evidence we have gathered, much of it cross-checked through five ships, clearly indicates sabotage. Major McKnight, if you will.

8:38:41 PM cmdrshelev: ((that was not planned))

8:38:42 PM lcdrtkirr: <<WB Shelev>>

8:38:46 PM vadmblackthorne: ((Doh)

8:39:00 PM kileyairell: ((nice timing on that though))

8:39:21 PM lcdrtkirr: <<Nah, Shelev prolly missed that we moved to the conference room. =P>>

8:40:50 PM kileyairell: ::looks over to the Major::

8:42:27 PM kileyairell: ((test))

8:42:51 PM vadmblackthorne: (pass)

8:44:25 PM vadmblackthorne: ((one second, behind the scenes stuff.))

8:44:45 PM misterboxingbear: ::Reaches out and drops a charred, melted remnant of a box shaped device onto the middle of the table::  The engineering team found this yesterday.  From what they can gather based on what's left of the circuitry,

8:44:54 PM kileyairell: ((kk))

8:45:41 PM misterboxingbear: it was specifically designed to trigger a power overload...essentially force feeding power into the forward launcher.  Obviously, this thing doesn't show up on any of the maintenence logs.

8:46:20 PM misterboxingbear: Security is still working on determining how the thing was installed and when...but we're going to need more time.  If it was an inside job...engineering is a big department.

8:46:23 PM vadmblackthorne: A necessary step, since we were at yellow alert. At yellow alert, the weapons are completely unpowered.

8:47:04 PM vadmblackthorne: ((oh crap shelev missed that)

8:47:15 PM lcdrtkirr: <<lol man>>

8:47:18 PM kileyairell: ((LOL, yeah, he left))

8:47:25 PM misterboxingbear: (Shit, I'm an idiot.)

8:47:33 PM vadmblackthorne: (I'll IM it to him)

8:47:50 PM lcdrtkirr: <<We're all like.. what do you have to say about that?  <_< ... >_> ... err...>>

8:52:00 PM cmdrshelev: ((ass))

8:52:00 PM vadmblackthorne: ((There, got him back)

8:52:01 PM misterboxingbear: (WB)

8:52:10 PM cmdrshelev: ((lol fishing))

8:52:13 PM lcdrtkirr: <<WB man>>

8:52:13 PM vadmblackthorne: ((He was IMed what he missed.))

8:52:29 PM vadmblackthorne: ((So continue, by all means, before he dies. :( ))

8:53:24 PM misterboxingbear: (I...was pretty much done.)

8:53:48 PM vadmblackthorne: ((Go ahead Shelev))

8:53:48 PM misterboxingbear: (That was the bullet points report, anyway.)

8:55:10 PM cmdrshelev: Morris> So if that chunk of iron fired the torpedo, who loaded it?

8:57:18 PM misterboxingbear: That would be my fault, sir.  It's standard operating procedure to leave one in the pipe, in the interest of improved reaction time.  We had the misfortune of running into these nasty bastards last year.  Crystalline.  Maybe you

8:57:52 PM misterboxingbear: heard of them.  In addition to being way tougher than I'd have liked, they have a fondness for sneak attacks.  I don't like being caught with my pants down.

8:58:09 PM vadmblackthorne: Regardless, with one loaded, it should be incapable of firing at yellow alert.

8:58:27 PM vadmblackthorne: Which is why that procedure was considered safe, until now.

9:00:47 PM misterboxingbear: Rest assured, we currently have no torpedoes loaded.  Until the source of the sabotage is identified, and any shortcomings in our...in my security procedures rectified, the practice is suspended.

9:01:10 PM vadmblackthorne: Not to mention that the weapons are voicelocked to my command.

9:02:01 PM misterboxingbear: ::Frowns::  Yeah.  That too.

9:02:11 PM cmdrshelev: Morris> I have no retort for this. You're showing me how I got shot at but the perpetrator is still at large. I'd like to be brought back to Federation space to negotiate further.

9:02:43 PM cmdrshelev: Morris> While I am away from my planet, you can have your garrison. I would like to discuss this further from "the wilds" as we seem to be in.

9:03:10 PM vadmblackthorne: ::nods:: Alright. Mr. Morris, someone wanted you dead, and wanted this to fall apart. We'll find out who.

9:03:25 PM vadmblackthorne: I give you my word.

9:04:31 PM cmdrshelev: You are not my greatest friend, but as you say, I would be dead by now had this been done by your hand.

9:04:44 PM vadmblackthorne: PAUSE SIM

9:04:45 PM vadmblackthorne: PAUSE SIM

9:04:47 PM vadmblackthorne: PAUSE SIM

9:04:49 PM lcdrtkirr: ::pauses::

9:05:05 PM misterboxingbear: paused

9:05:23 PM lcdrtkirr: ::fires Shelev's router::

9:05:35 PM vadmblackthorne: Whew. Sorry for the long sim folks, but there was a certain point I wanted to reach tonight to move this plot along and Shelev's router was being a bitch. :mad: :argh:

9:05:43 PM cmdrshelev: my gold card is becoming aquainted with apple store

9:06:02 PM cmdrshelev: I am done with $19.00 router

9:06:09 PM vadmblackthorne: Kill it with fire

9:06:32 PM cmdrshelev: fuck that, I'm ebaying it for $5 to let some other poor bastard deal with it

9:07:00 PM vadmblackthorne: So, that's where we are now.

9:07:16 PM vadmblackthorne: This plot is close to ending. If anyone has any ideas they'd like to run, please let me know!

9:08:36 PM vadmblackthorne: Also, congratulations to T'Kirr and Shelev for winning September's log of the month with "An Andorian and a Vulcan Walk Into a Bar..."

9:08:48 PM lcdrtkirr: ::cheers::

9:08:49 PM cmdrshelev: lol win by default

9:08:49 PM misterboxingbear: Heh, nicely done.

9:08:57 PM vadmblackthorne: Hey, logs are better than no logs!

9:09:04 PM lcdrtkirr: We still win by effort =P

9:09:10 PM vadmblackthorne: I'm happy to have one to give the award to!

9:09:57 PM vadmblackthorne: Two months in a row even!

9:10:21 PM lcdrtkirr: I figured since it's my plotline, I'd better get my butt in gear. o.O

9:10:53 PM lcdrtkirr: I hope everyone's felt sufficiently involved

9:11:11 PM vadmblackthorne: Great job T'Kirr. :) 

9:11:33 PM vadmblackthorne: But anyway, this plot is about to end, and we decided that we did want to use more character -focused subplots. So, send me your ideas!

9:11:59 PM lcdrtkirr: Next sim will be a ride, make sure you're there! =P

9:12:11 PM lcdrtkirr: And check your mail this week for another log

9:12:27 PM vadmblackthorne: That's all for this week then.
