6:55:50 PM vadmblackthorne: Hiya folks

6:55:56 PM lcdrtkirr: Boo.

7:00:44 PM lcdrtkirr: I like your log. =]

7:00:58 PM vadmblackthorne: Thanks!

7:02:42 PM lcdrtkirr: Mum, huh? =P

7:03:18 PM vadmblackthorne: Well, his human half is Irish. :v:

7:04:44 PM lcdrtkirr: Ah I see

7:05:57 PM vadmblackthorne: Hm, need to poke McKnight.

7:07:40 PM lcdrtkirr: Guess I'll poke Kiley again.

7:07:47 PM vadmblackthorne: Excellent.

7:09:34 PM lcdrtkirr: Actually got her this time.

7:09:39 PM vadmblackthorne: Woohoo!

7:09:50 PM lcdrtkirr: She was asleep, could barely understand her, hehe

7:10:46 PM vadmblackthorne: We'll give her a few minutes.

7:13:06 PM lcdrtkirr: Hey, hun

7:13:23 PM vadmblackthorne: Hiya Kiley

7:13:28 PM vadmblackthorne: Well now, we're ready to go!

7:13:55 PM cmdrshelev: ::TWEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeet::

7:14:00 PM lcdrtkirr: ::AA::

7:14:04 PM majdougmcknight: ::AA::

7:14:29 PM vadmblackthorne: Okay then, tonight it's still the night we were awakened in the middle of by Dugahn's escape.

7:14:30 PM kileyairell: ::AA::

7:14:47 PM vadmblackthorne: T'Kirr is comatose in sickbay, having been mentally assaulted by said Vulcan.

7:15:04 PM vadmblackthorne: Dugahn's trail is being followed with Shelev in command on the bridge.

7:15:41 PM vadmblackthorne: Questions?

7:17:21 PM majdougmcknight: Nope.

7:17:26 PM lcdrtkirr: Nay.

7:17:30 PM vadmblackthorne: Okay then.

7:17:31 PM vadmblackthorne: BEGIN SIM

7:17:32 PM vadmblackthorne: BEGIN SIM

7:17:35 PM vadmblackthorne: BEGIN SIM

7:18:11 PM cmdrshelev: ::on bridge, chasing down the machen bren shuttle::

7:18:15 PM majdougmcknight: ::Stands at his station, attention fixed on his console until...::  Commander, we've reached optimal range.  Ready to fire torpedo spread on your signal.

7:18:25 PM lcdrtkirr: ::lies in Sickbay, unconscious on a biobed::

7:18:32 PM vadmblackthorne: ::enters sickbay and walks directly to T'Kirr:

7:18:37 PM kileyairell: ::in sickbay, going over TKirr's scans::

7:18:46 PM vadmblackthorne: Doctor Airell.

7:19:56 PM majdougmcknight: Latest hapless security guy> ::Lies off to the side on another biobed, dutifully away from the center of attention with a not so mild concussion::

7:20:02 PM kileyairell: ::looks up:: greetings Captain

7:20:28 PM cmdrshelev: Knock him out, major.

7:20:56 PM vadmblackthorne: Doctor, I have been in touch with my mother, a Betazoid Healer.

7:21:47 PM majdougmcknight: ::Nods and executes his firing solution.  A volley of quantum torpedoes disperse and detonate all around the shuttle.  If McKnight's calculations, assisted by countless hours of holodeck practice are right, the Machen Bren shuttle's

7:22:02 PM kileyairell: ::frowns, listens::

7:22:07 PM majdougmcknight: warp field should destabilize almost immediately, forcing it back into normal space::

7:22:23 PM vadmblackthorne: Though I am not trained, I have prepared myself in the necessary techniques under her instruction.

7:22:34 PM vadmblackthorne: ::his face uncharacteristically serene::

7:22:40 PM cmdrshelev: Report.

7:23:18 PM kileyairell: I would have to advise against what you're thinking Captain.

7:23:39 PM vadmblackthorne: It is the only way to save her.

7:25:13 PM kileyairell: I have the ability to do this as well Captain.

7:25:28 PM vadmblackthorne: You are not a Healer, though you are a doctor.

7:26:05 PM kileyairell: I am as much a healer as you are.

7:26:18 PM majdougmcknight: Picking up no further warp trail.  Time to drop our little fleet to impulse, and commence the fox hunt.

7:27:20 PM vadmblackthorne: Correct, you are. But I have now invested myself in this.

7:27:27 PM cmdrshelev: Do it.

7:27:48 PM cmdrshelev: I want everyone larger than a barrel on scanners.

7:28:00 PM majdougmcknight: ::Is not at the helm...but I assume whatever NPC we have there does it.::

7:28:10 PM kileyairell: I do not believe it is wise for you to unnessesarily put your life at risk Captain.

7:28:26 PM vadmblackthorne: I am prepared.

7:28:34 PM cmdrshelev: ::Yep::

7:29:04 PM kileyairell: What about your ship, you willling to jeopardise that?

7:30:59 PM lcdrtkirr: <<Kiley having trouble, trying to invite her>>

7:33:49 PM majdougmcknight: ::Once the fleet drops to impulse, it essentially becomes a waiting game.  Dughan can't leave the scanning area without going to warp, and thus being detected once again.  So, the task force commences intensive sensor scans:: 

7:34:09 PM majdougmcknight: And...gravitic torpedoes are ready to go, sir.

7:34:27 PM cmdrshelev: Cat and mouse time.

7:35:21 PM majdougmcknight: And no mouse hole means it's a piss poor time to be the smaller one.  Commence firing?

7:35:48 PM cmdrshelev: Why not? We're not out here to be sporting.

7:37:11 PM majdougmcknight: ::Grins as he sends the signal out to the fleet, and all ships present fire wide area spreads.  Once the torpedoes detonate, powerful gravitational shockwaves follow.  As soon as one of those shockwaves washes over the Machen Bren

7:37:37 PM majdougmcknight: shuttle, the resulting distortion to the wave front should register on sensors.::

7:38:53 PM rhianaaiden: ((this is Kiley))

7:39:12 PM lcdrtkirr: <<Wonder what's up with Kiley's SN =/>>

7:40:17 PM vadmblackthorne: There, back

7:40:43 PM cmdrshelev: w-hat

7:41:20 PM vadmblackthorne: There is a danger, of course.

7:42:15 PM rhianaaiden: Yes, there is Captain.  We don't know what Dugahn's done to her, or how badly.  We won't know until someone goes in.  I'm not sure it's wise to risk the Captain of the ship's life.

7:43:16 PM majdougmcknight: (Good thing he's an admiral then.)

7:43:17 PM cmdrshelev: ACTION> A wave flashes over the Machen Bren shuttle.

7:43:35 PM vadmblackthorne: Regardless, I am doing this.

7:43:43 PM rhianaaiden: ((His rank may be Admiral, but he's still the Captain of the ship ;)  ))

7:44:00 PM majdougmcknight: (I know.  That's why it's a joke.)

7:44:40 PM majdougmcknight: Commander!  Positive contact!

7:44:45 PM vadmblackthorne: Monitor us both, doctor.

7:45:06 PM rhianaaiden: I'm going to make mention in my logs that I'm advising against this sir.

7:45:27 PM cmdrshelev: Shoot his legs off if you have to, get him in the shuttlebay.

7:45:43 PM vadmblackthorne: As you wish, doctor.

7:46:47 PM cmdrshelev: ((fired))

7:47:33 PM vadmblackthorne: :;leans over T'Kirr's still form and closes his eyes, reaching out::

7:48:17 PM rhianaaiden: ::frowns, and moves over to monitor both TKirr and Ian::

7:48:22 PM lcdrtkirr: ::T'Kirr's mind is a torrential storm.  Deep, dark blues press in around Ian like a roiling, stifling cloud of smoke, taking his breath and stunting his visibility::

7:48:37 PM lcdrtkirr: ::Ropes of blinding light twist through the chaos, attracted to him like a lightning rod::

7:49:00 PM vadmblackthorne: ::begins breathing deeply::

7:49:13 PM vadmblackthorne: ::reaches out around him, willing the storm to calm as he can::

7:49:17 PM majdougmcknight: ::Dughan's location determined, the task force closes in, still conducting active scans.  Setting ship's phasers to low power, he begins firing, knowing that a direct hit, in addition to potentially disabling the holographic

7:50:00 PM majdougmcknight: camoflague, will cause some minor hull damage that will more easily register on sensors, rendering Dughan's escape but the dimmest of fantasies.::

7:50:58 PM vadmblackthorne: ::shocked at first by the fierceness of her mindscape::

7:51:28 PM lcdrtkirr: ::The storm rages around Ian, but with his efforts, he finds he can slowly see further and further::

7:52:28 PM vadmblackthorne: ::all his effort focuses on calming the storm as he scans what he can see::

7:52:39 PM vadmblackthorne: ::visibly sweating::

7:53:29 PM vadmblackthorne: ::reaches out:: "T'Kirr."

7:53:52 PM lcdrtkirr: ::No response.  Far off, an area of the storm darker still can be seen::

7:54:59 PM vadmblackthorne: ::senses that that his the way he must go, and moves himself::

7:55:25 PM rhianaaiden: ::monitoring life signs::

7:56:31 PM vadmblackthorne: ::grimaces as he approaches, the area rife with pain::

7:56:43 PM cmdrshelev: Report?

7:57:52 PM lcdrtkirr: ::The darkness envelops Ian, and once beyond its boundaries, T'Kirr's image can be seen, beaten and bloody, staring off into the distance::

7:58:10 PM majdougmcknight: ::It takes a few tries.  Getting a solid lock on this thing is a bitch.  But they don't need a perfect lock with 6 ships to blanket the area, and eventually...:: Direct hit, sir!  Inititiating tractor beam!

7:58:19 PM vadmblackthorne: ::extends his mind further, willing the calm to grow:::

7:59:20 PM majdougmcknight: Sir, permission to leave the bridge and lead the security team that drags that son of a bitch out of our new ship?

8:00:04 PM vadmblackthorne: "Lieutenant Commander T'Kirr."

8:00:45 PM lcdrtkirr: ::The storm does not give, and a flash of orange and yellow strike downwards on them.  When the light retreats, T'Kirr looks even worse::

8:01:19 PM lcdrtkirr: ::does not turn to Ian, still staring off:: I am going to die...

8:01:45 PM cmdrshelev: Granted. Tell me when he's in the brig and ready to get the green beat out of him. Not that we beat prisoners, it's just a turn of phrase.

8:02:47 PM vadmblackthorne: ::his breathing heavy and heartrate elevated from the strain::

8:02:55 PM vadmblackthorne: You will not die, Commander.

8:03:13 PM vadmblackthorne: ::focuses his mind even more, using a fortitude technique taught by his mother::

8:03:15 PM majdougmcknight: Turn of phrase...right.

8:03:52 PM cmdrshelev: ::Shouts after McKnight as he heads to the TL:: Make him well aware that it's been a slow day if he feels like making a break for it.

8:04:08 PM lcdrtkirr: ::blinding crooked bolts arc down again, as if angered by Ian's attempts::

8:04:25 PM lcdrtkirr: ACTION> T'Kirr's life signs spike towards critical.

8:04:36 PM vadmblackthorne: ::focuses on the the bolts, staring intently::

8:05:36 PM vadmblackthorne: Calm. Now.

8:05:47 PM rhianaaiden: ::quickly takes a hypo and injects TKirr with some medication to help sustain her life signs::

8:05:48 PM vadmblackthorne: She is not yours.

8:06:20 PM majdougmcknight: ::Grins as he steps into the turbolift::  Deck 18.

8:06:34 PM lcdrtkirr: ::deep thunder booms around them, but the harsh light does not return::

8:06:56 PM vadmblackthorne: ::extends his mind into a force above them, shielding them both::

8:06:58 PM majdougmcknight: +Security+ O'Grady, our departed guest is about to rejoin us.  Meet me in shuttlebay 1 with a full security detail.

8:07:08 PM vadmblackthorne: T'Kirr, you must help me fight this.

8:07:09 PM majdougmcknight: O'Grady> +McKnight+ On our way, sir.

8:07:42 PM lcdrtkirr: ::whimpers and turns to Ian, as if noticing his presence for the first time::  A-Admiral?

8:08:36 PM majdougmcknight: +Security+ Oh, and O'Grady?  Bring an extra rifle for me.  I have no intention of appearing the officer and the gentleman for this bastard.

8:09:09 PM vadmblackthorne: Yes. I am here, and I need your help.

8:10:03 PM lcdrtkirr: I can't... I'm dying.  I have no strength left...

8:10:10 PM vadmblackthorne: ::his heartrate extremely elevated and sweat pouring off of him as he stands, eyes closed by the biobed::

8:11:26 PM vadmblackthorne: You must fight with me.

8:11:28 PM rhianaaiden: ::frowns more, injects the Captain with medication to decrease his heart rate, slow his breathing.  Is tempted to pull him out, but knows that'll probably kill both of them::

8:11:38 PM vadmblackthorne: I can not do this alone.

8:12:23 PM majdougmcknight: ::Mere minutes later, McKnight and his men stand assembled in shuttlebay 1, watching the open bay door as the captured shuttle is tractored in::

8:12:46 PM lcdrtkirr: ::T'Kirr's image pales, the cracked surface beneath her seeming to absorb the green blood that flows from her wounds::  I can't do anything... you should just let me die.  You must escape while you still can...

8:12:59 PM vadmblackthorne: I can only hold this storm off for so long, Commander. Help me drive it away.

8:13:38 PM vadmblackthorne: (Argh)

8:14:23 PM vadmblackthorne: ::kneels beside her and tries to get her to stand:: Come, time is short.

8:14:47 PM lcdrtkirr: ::wraps a weary arm around Ian's shoulder::

8:14:53 PM majdougmcknight: Alright Dughan, time to be a gracious loser!  Believe me when I say you do NOT want to make me come in there!

8:14:57 PM vadmblackthorne: ::stands with her:: Now, focus yourself.

8:18:49 PM vadmblackthorne: (Damn AIM is the suck tonight)

8:20:31 PM vadmblackthorne: (anyone stil getting this)

8:24:50 PM vadmblackthorne: Okay apparently not. THis is fucked and I'll have to call it.

8:26:26 PM vadmblackthorne: Good night if anyone can see this, we'll try again next time!
