7:02:34 PM vadmblackthorne: Hiya folks.

7:03:16 PM misterboxingbear: (Sorry, multi-tasking again.)

7:03:20 PM vadmblackthorne: Hiya

7:04:24 PM vadmblackthorne: Well, this will be all we have tonight. Kiley told me earlier that she can't make it.

7:04:32 PM misterboxingbear: Ah, too bad.

7:04:40 PM misterboxingbear: Nice log, by the way.

7:04:44 PM vadmblackthorne: Thank you.

7:04:50 PM lcdrtkirr: Ah okay, yeah, I agree. =P

7:04:59 PM vadmblackthorne: :D

7:06:05 PM misterboxingbear: It's good to have another member for the deadbeat dad club.

7:06:21 PM vadmblackthorne: Hey, he didn't know about his kid. :)

7:06:50 PM lcdrtkirr: Testing...

7:06:58 PM cmdrshelev: yes

7:06:59 PM vadmblackthorne: El Paso

7:07:13 PM lcdrtkirr: My font was entirely too big. >_<

7:07:41 PM vadmblackthorne: Well then, shall we get started?

7:07:52 PM cmdrshelev: ::tweet::

7:07:55 PM cmdrshelev: <-- lazy

7:07:58 PM lcdrtkirr: ::AA::

7:08:06 PM misterboxingbear: ::AA::

7:08:43 PM vadmblackthorne: Alright then. Tonight, we start later that same night that the logs T'Kirr and I wrote were set in.

7:09:09 PM cmdrshelev: oh shit I don't remember the details of those

7:09:19 PM vadmblackthorne: It's about 0130 when...

7:09:23 PM vadmblackthorne: BEGIN SIM

7:09:25 PM vadmblackthorne: BEGIN SIM

7:09:26 PM vadmblackthorne: BEGIN SIM

7:09:38 PM cmdrshelev: ((oh good 0130 means I am asleep ))

7:09:51 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> ::blinking to stay awake on the Bridge::

7:10:00 PM vadmblackthorne: ::finally having fallen asleep after the exhausting conversation with his ex-wife::

7:10:53 PM vadmblackthorne: LCdr Kathryn Harper> ::in the center seat, idly reading a PADD as nothing ever happens on this shift, since they'd have to pay more actors::

7:11:58 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> ::blinks some moer and does a double-take at sensors::  Uhm...

7:12:16 PM vadmblackthorne: Harper> ::looks up, her green eyes blinking sleepily:: Hm?

7:12:29 PM misterboxingbear: ::McKnight was actually enjoying his first good night's sleep in awhile, even in spite of the present situation.  There was hope now that this mission could be accomplished without any actions taken that would violate his principles

7:12:32 PM vadmblackthorne: Harper> ::drinks at her lukewarm coffee::

7:12:55 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> ::wakes up a bit, curiosity in his voice:: Um, Commander.  Shuttle Bay One's doors have opened.

7:13:11 PM misterboxingbear: , and for the first time, he might just have the power to ensure that...once he'd gotten a good 6 hours, of course.::

7:13:21 PM vadmblackthorne: Harper> Any scheduled departures?

7:13:33 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> No, I just checked.

7:13:47 PM vadmblackthorne: Harper> Override them and close them.

7:14:15 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> ::tapping on his console:: Yes, Commander.

7:14:42 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> Um, they're closed, but something's escaped through, and... disappeared.

7:14:56 PM vadmblackthorne: Harper> Something? You can't identify what?

7:15:22 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> ::swallows and looks up at LCdr Harper in confusion:: It's the Machen Bren stealth ship.

7:15:39 PM vadmblackthorne: Harper> Yellow alert, shields up!

7:15:52 PM vadmblackthorne: Harper> +Blackthorne+ Harper to Blackthorne!

7:16:04 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> ::flips the switch::

7:16:43 PM vadmblackthorne: ::opens his eyes:: What.

7:17:27 PM vadmblackthorne: ::taps his commbadge:: +Harper+ Blackthorne here, go ahead. ::his voice gravelly::

7:18:19 PM vadmblackthorne: Harper> Admiral, someone has stolen the Machen Bren stealth ship we had in shuttlebay one. We're trying to track it with sensors, but it was out before we could respond. ::gestures sharply to Logan::

7:18:39 PM vadmblackthorne: ::opens his eyes wide:: +H+ I'll be right up, Blackthorne out.

7:19:04 PM vadmblackthorne: ::rolls out of bed:: Bloody hell now what. ::goes to the closet and pulls on a uniform::

7:19:17 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> ::swallows again, scanning in vain for the getaway craft::

7:19:33 PM vadmblackthorne: Harper> Get something for him by the time he gets up here.

7:19:49 PM vadmblackthorne: +McKnight+ Blackthorne to McKnight.

7:20:00 PM cmdrshelev: ::Falls out of bed after being gently coaxed into conciousness by A FUCKING KLAXON::

7:20:01 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> Yes, sir.  I'm sure trying.


7:20:44 PM vadmblackthorne: Harper> Capture all passive sensor logs of the ten minutes preceding the event as well.

7:20:49 PM cmdrshelev: ::Finds a uniform and orders something strong from the replicator.::

7:21:11 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> Aye, sir.  Retaining sensor data.

7:21:20 PM misterboxingbear: ::Alas, no good mood was ever meant to last.  Having already snapped awake at the alert, McKnight was able to answer promptly, albeit in a somewhat less than normally composed fashion::  +Blackthorne+ McKnight here.;

7:21:37 PM vadmblackthorne: ::gets his uniform  on and runs out into the hallway, thanking whoever will listen than that the ship's lighting corresponds to a day/night cycle::

7:21:56 PM lcdrtkirr: <<I like imagining an Andorian literally falling out of bed>>

7:21:58 PM vadmblackthorne: +McKnight+ Major, there's been a security breach. The Machen Bren stealth craft we had in shuttlebay one has been stolen.

7:22:38 PM cmdrshelev: ::Exits into the hallway with a rumpled uniform, carrying a hot mug of some purple beverage::

7:22:47 PM vadmblackthorne: Harper> ::chews on her lip waiting for the Admiral::

7:23:04 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> Commander, I'm picking up something faint... I think it's the steath vessel's warp trail.

7:23:25 PM cmdrshelev: ::Makes executive decision to check the 'diplomat's' suite and takes a TL down there::

7:24:13 PM vadmblackthorne: Harper> Get a good bead on it.

7:24:22 PM vadmblackthorne: ::makes his way to the TL:: Bridge.

7:24:49 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> ::nods:: It's definitely the warp trail.  Sending to helm.

7:25:46 PM vadmblackthorne: Harper> Excellent.

7:25:53 PM vadmblackthorne: ::enters the bridge:: Report, Commander.

7:26:04 PM vadmblackthorne: Harper> Admiral, we have locked in on a warp trail.

7:26:51 PM cmdrshelev: ::Pulls out into the guest quarters section and goes down the rooms, checking the logs on the doorways - they haven't been opened for two hours.::

7:27:01 PM misterboxingbear: ::Has already feverishly thrown on a uniform, and is on his way to the bridge even now.::

7:27:24 PM vadmblackthorne: Helm, stand by to pursue. Any idea who stole it?

7:27:38 PM vadmblackthorne: Harper> Not yet, Admiral.

7:27:53 PM vadmblackthorne: I have the bridge.

7:28:01 PM vadmblackthorne: Harper> Aye sir. ::figured as much::

7:29:53 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> ::glances up at Blackthorne a moment:: I'm following the decay as it forms... although there's no way to tell how far ahead of us it is.

7:30:16 PM vadmblackthorne: We can outrun them. I'd like to know who we're chasing first.

7:30:33 PM vadmblackthorne: Computer, location of Jacob Morris?

7:31:32 PM misterboxingbear: ::Rushing onto the bridge, McKnight quickly takes up tactical, from there coordinating with security::

7:32:22 PM cmdrshelev: Computer>> Jacob Morris is in assigned quarters.

7:32:32 PM cmdrshelev: ::Takes the TL up to the bridge::

7:33:09 PM vadmblackthorne: Verify that with an internal scan.

7:33:17 PM misterboxingbear: Computer, locate Lieutenant Commander T'Kirr.

7:33:53 PM lcdrtkirr: Computer> Lieutenant Commander T'Kirr is in her quarters.

7:34:15 PM cmdrshelev: ::Exits onto the TL:: To answer your second question, our guests are all in their quarters; doors haven't been opened since 1130 hours

7:34:26 PM cmdrshelev: ((2330 dammit))

7:34:47 PM vadmblackthorne: ::looks directly at Shelev while he says:: Computer, locate Dugahn.

7:35:06 PM misterboxingbear: +Security+ O'Grady, dispatch a security team to Commander T'Kirr's quarters.  Either someone's been fooling with out internal sensors, or we may have a wounded crewman.

7:35:35 PM lcdrtkirr: Computer> Dugahn is not on board.

7:35:51 PM vadmblackthorne: That green blooded son of a bitch.,

7:35:59 PM vadmblackthorne: Helm, lay in a pursuit course.

7:36:37 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> ::feeds Helm coordiantes as they update on his scan readout::

7:36:44 PM misterboxingbear: Confirmed.  We just got security camera footage.

7:36:48 PM vadmblackthorne: Warp Nine, execute.

7:36:55 PM cmdrshelev: For the record, I didn't like him either.

7:37:08 PM vadmblackthorne: Name three Vulcans that you do like.

7:37:32 PM vadmblackthorne: ACTION> Atlantis screams off as loudly as a ship can scream off into space which is still perfectly quiet.

7:37:44 PM lcdrtkirr: <<lol>>

7:38:01 PM cmdrshelev: ::Pauses. Gives up. Goes to The Other Chair.::

7:38:37 PM lcdrtkirr: ::lies unconscious in bed, waiting for security to find her::

7:38:44 PM vadmblackthorne: Now how did he know about that ship?

7:38:52 PM vadmblackthorne: That shuttlebay was secured.

7:39:35 PM cmdrshelev: Hell, *I* forgot about that ship. And no one can read Orion so how could he fly the damn thing.

7:39:53 PM vadmblackthorne: Major, you'll have some questions to answer.

7:40:03 PM cmdrshelev: ((fired))

7:41:03 PM misterboxingbear: (And as soon as I know how to answer then, I'll get right on that.)

7:42:10 PM vadmblackthorne: Launch your customary full investigation and have a report for me by 0800.

7:42:16 PM lcdrtkirr: (sorry, can't do much but play dead)

7:43:24 PM misterboxingbear: Yes, sir.

7:43:31 PM vadmblackthorne: And what was that about Commander T'Kirr?

7:45:12 PM misterboxingbear: The computer logged her access codes used to enter shuttlebay one just shortly before the bay doors opened.  How anyone but T'Kirr has those codes, I don't yet know.  But I will.

7:45:31 PM misterboxingbear: ::Considers for a moment::  And to be honest, I suppose I can guess.

7:45:46 PM vadmblackthorne: Dugahn had her access codes and she's still in her quarters, not having responded to a yellow alert?

7:46:05 PM vadmblackthorne: She would have responded if she were capable. Get a medical team down there, she's hurt.

7:48:51 PM misterboxingbear: ::And at this point, just so we can shift the focus from McKnight looking stupid, the security team had arrived.  The lock on her door was quickly neutralized with a security over-ride, allowing two armed security goons to begin

7:49:27 PM misterboxingbear: seeking out the uncharacteristically elusive science officer::

7:49:41 PM lcdrtkirr: LtJGNolan> ::answers call to play medic and rushes in behind security detail::

7:50:27 PM lcdrtkirr: ::quietly lying in bed::

7:51:16 PM lcdrtkirr: LtJGNolan> ::spots T'Kirr beyond 'goons' and moves around them to scan 'n stuff::

7:52:20 PM lcdrtkirr: LtJGNolan> +Blackthorne+ Doctor Nolan to Admiral Blackthorne.  We've found T'Kirr in her quarters.  She's unconscious.  I'm transporting her to Sickbay.

7:52:24 PM misterboxingbear: ::Said nameless goons conduct an obligatory search for any sign of her attacker, well aware he's likely long gone::

7:52:26 PM vadmblackthorne: ::finally sits down in the center seat, fuming::

7:52:38 PM vadmblackthorne: +Nolan+ Acknowledged, keep me updated on her condition.

7:52:46 PM vadmblackthorne: I can imagine how he got her access codes.

7:53:05 PM lcdrtkirr: LtJGNolan> ::not-so-magically transports T'Kirr to Sickbay and begins further examination::

7:53:33 PM vadmblackthorne: Shelev, get down to Dugahn's quarters and see if he left anything behind.

7:53:43 PM cmdrshelev: Aye.

7:53:58 PM cmdrshelev: ::Goes to the TL:: Guest quarters.

7:54:06 PM lcdrtkirr: MBStealthShip> ::speeds along somewhere ahead of Atlantis, unseen::

7:54:07 PM vadmblackthorne: Harper> ::still on the bridge, feeling rather useless::

7:55:21 PM cmdrshelev: ::Busts into Dughan's quarters with overrides for the door, it's dark as hell like all vulcan rooms.::

7:55:41 PM cmdrshelev: Lights up.

7:56:11 PM cmdrshelev: ::The room is back to "fresh hotel room status"::

7:56:13 PM vadmblackthorne: ::sees Harper loitering:: You're dismissed, Commander.

7:56:14 PM cmdrshelev: Aw shit.

7:56:40 PM vadmblackthorne: Harper> Yessir. ::enters the TL and disappears back to bit-part land::

7:57:05 PM cmdrshelev: ::Starts going through drawers, footlockers, desks..::

7:57:35 PM lcdrtkirr: LtJGNolan> +Blackthorne+ Doctor Nolan, here.  Admiral, if you're not too busy up there, you might want to come down to Sickbay.

7:57:44 PM vadmblackthorne: +Nolan+ What's going on?

7:58:07 PM lcdrtkirr: +Blackthorne+ ::sighs:: I've tried reviving Commander T'Kirr, but it's having no effect.  I believe she's suffered neurological damage.

7:59:04 PM vadmblackthorne: ::was afraid of that:: +Nolan+ I'll be down soon.

8:00:22 PM misterboxingbear: Well, there is ONE bit of good news.

8:00:27 PM vadmblackthorne: ::Stands:: Yes?

8:02:07 PM misterboxingbear: Dughan may know how to work the controls on that ship, but he obviously hasn't had the training that its former pilots had.  He just keeps speeding along.  No drops in and out of impulse, nothing.  We have a steady warp trail, and

8:02:27 PM misterboxingbear: THAT we can track.  What's more, at warp 5, he won't be able to stay ahead of us long.

8:02:45 PM lcdrtkirr: LtJGNolan> ::shuffles around his patient, looking from one panel to another, shaking his head::

8:03:33 PM vadmblackthorne: Excellent. You have the bridge. Keep on his trail and capture him alive, if possible.

8:04:30 PM vadmblackthorne: ::enters the TL:: Sickbay.

8:04:35 PM misterboxingbear: Oh, there'd be no fun in dead.

8:05:08 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> ::after Blackthorne disappears:: But Major, we have no way of seeing through its stealth once we're on top of it.  It would be impossible to get a weapons lock.

8:06:47 PM vadmblackthorne: ::enters sickbay and looks for Nolan::

8:07:02 PM lcdrtkirr: LtJGNolan> ::looks up at Blackthorne's entrance, waving him over::

8:07:52 PM vadmblackthorne: ::walks over, looking at T'Kirr and frowning::

8:07:59 PM lcdrtkirr: LtJGNolan> I've stabilized her temporarily, but I'm not sure what else I can do for her.  ::looks over his shoulder:: She's comatose.

8:08:43 PM vadmblackthorne: ::quietly:: Bloody hell. What did he do?

8:09:08 PM lcdrtkirr: LtJGNolan> I'm not sure how much longer I can keep her this way.  Her neural pathways are slowly decaying.  ::eyes narrow:: What who did?

8:09:43 PM misterboxingbear: The stealth is good, Ensign, but there's no such thing as perfect.  It's designed to perform recon without the enemy knowing it's there.  Once you have enough ships specifically looking for it, they need to monitor their engine

8:10:27 PM vadmblackthorne: I believe her the victim of a telepathic assault, doctor. If my belief is correct, information was forcefully extracted from her mind via mindmeld.

8:11:30 PM misterboxingbear: emissions carefully, and in the meantime, we can flush him out with specialized torpedo volleys.  Rig them with gravometric charges, and the resulting disturbance gave us readings we can use last time.  That leaves the problem of

8:11:34 PM misterboxingbear: knocking him out of warp.

8:11:50 PM cmdrshelev: +Blackthorne+ Shelev to Blackthorne

8:12:28 PM cmdrshelev: ((well she WAS dead))

8:12:40 PM vadmblackthorne: +Shelev+ Go ahed, Commander.

8:13:06 PM cmdrshelev: +Blackthorne+ There is absolutely nothing I can find in Dughan's quarters. It's like a hotel room he never moved into.

8:13:26 PM vadmblackthorne: +Shelev+ Understood. Get back to the bridge and oversee the pursuit until I return.

8:13:36 PM cmdrshelev: +Blackthorne+ Aye.

8:13:46 PM cmdrshelev: ::Returns to bridge via TL yadda yadda::

8:16:30 PM misterboxingbear: (WB)

8:16:48 PM lcdrtkirr: (Get kicked out from writing too long of a msg, and it won't let me back in...)

8:17:49 PM lcdrtkirr: LtJGNolan> ::looks down in thought, nodding::  Mm... I'd say it's good that we got her here when we did, but I'm not sure what else we can do.

8:19:37 PM misterboxingbear: ::His face takes on a look of intense concentration, as he begins carefully preparing a firing solution.::  It's a small ship.  The detonation of enough torpedoes at sufficiently close range may be enough to destabilize his warp

8:19:45 PM vadmblackthorne: She needs a telepathic Healer from Betazed.

8:20:10 PM misterboxingbear: field without actually destroying the ship itself.

8:20:37 PM vadmblackthorne: Or the Vulcan equivalent.

8:21:19 PM lcdrtkirr: LtJGNolan> ::sighs:: I don't know if she'll last that long.  If she hadn't been found so early in the night... well, she would've been dead by morning.

8:21:46 PM lcdrtkirr: LtJGNolan> I'm only buying her a few hours.

8:22:29 PM vadmblackthorne: PAUSE SIM

8:22:30 PM vadmblackthorne: PAUSE SIM

8:22:32 PM vadmblackthorne: PAUSE SIM

8:22:37 PM lcdrtkirr: ::pauses::

8:23:11 PM vadmblackthorne: Well then, again I'm impressed by what four can do.

8:25:03 PM vadmblackthorne: Nicely done folks! More to come.

8:25:19 PM cmdrshelev: yay dain bramaged vulcan

8:26:20 PM cmdrshelev: lol

8:26:24 PM cmdrshelev: googled

8:27:08 PM lcdrtkirr: My story arc's almost over, put on yer thinking caps 'cause it's someone else's turn soon =P

8:28:19 PM vadmblackthorne: Yeah, please do so. The secessionists were my idea and Dugahn was hers, and we made them work. Someone else can do the same. :)

8:29:19 PM vadmblackthorne: That's all for tonight.

8:29:32 PM cmdrshelev: alright

8:29:38 PM cmdrshelev: I am going to watch da ali g show
