(7:02:12 PM) LCdr TKirr entered the room.
(7:02:12 PM) VAdm Blackthorne entered the room.
(7:03:12 PM) MajDougMcKnight entered the room.
(7:03:17 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Evening, folks.
(7:03:18 PM) LCdr TKirr: afk for a few min
(7:08:56 PM) LCdr TKirr: Don't have my phone on me atm
(7:10:08 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Well I could call Shelev.
(7:11:47 PM) LCdr TKirr: Kay found phone =P
(7:11:53 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Texted him actually
(7:13:25 PM) LCdr TKirr: Left msg again.
(7:14:36 PM) Kiley Airell entered the room.
(7:14:45 PM) LCdr TKirr: Yay. =)
(7:14:45 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Hiya Kiley
(7:15:24 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Hey hey.
(7:15:31 PM) Kiley Airell: *is still mostly asleep*
(7:16:05 PM) cmdr shelev entered the room.
(7:16:22 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Woo! The whole beleagured team.
(7:16:27 PM) LCdr TKirr: Hurray
(7:16:35 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: And the gang's all here.
(7:16:36 PM) cmdr shelev: I'm fresh from halo 2 let's kill some shit
(7:16:46 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Hoo-ah!
(7:17:18 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Okay then, let's get started.
(7:19:15 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Tonight, we've crashed landed down into the dregs of the huge capital city of Benzoa.
(7:19:53 PM) Unable to send message: The message is too large.
(7:20:05 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: And I lost the brief to it being too large.
(7:20:40 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Our pilot was killed in the crash :( but we survived and carried our injured asses to a nearby abandoned apartment building.
(7:20:49 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Kiley is waking up from being knocked out, but IRL and in-sim.
(7:21:03 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: We're rather banged up and getting our bearings, but we can't stay here.
(7:21:05 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Questions?
(7:21:15 PM) cmdr shelev: Do we have to go home
(7:21:26 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: what]
(7:21:36 PM) cmdr shelev: You don't have to go home but you can't stay here :(
(7:21:44 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Rite.
(7:22:13 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (What is that from? I know that quote.)
(7:22:16 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: So in that case, BEGIN SIM.
(7:22:19 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM.
(7:22:20 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(7:22:23 PM) cmdr shelev: (some random song I don't remember the name of)
(7:22:45 PM) LCdr TKirr: (I wanna say Doors...)
(7:22:53 PM) cmdr shelev: (has any time passed since we ended last week)
(7:23:06 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: (No.)
(7:23:11 PM) Kiley Airell: ::slowly starts to open eyes::
(7:23:24 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::having put Kiley down he falls against a wall with a tired groan::
(7:23:50 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Smiles as he shuts the medical tricorder:: She's starting to come around.
(7:23:58 PM) cmdr shelev: :Shelev is propped in a chair at the doorway with a scanner in one hand and rubbing the stub of his lost antenna with his other.:
(7:24:02 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::stands next to McKnight, fiddling with the kit and trying to be of use::
(7:24:04 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Doctor, you all there?
(7:25:03 PM) Kiley Airell: ::not remembering what happened, groans slightly:: where am I? What happened? Why does my head feel like it was run over?
(7:25:43 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Our transport crash landed into a less desirable part of town.
(7:26:08 PM) Kiley Airell: transport?
(7:26:12 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: I'll be lodging a complaint with my travel agent tomorrow. For now, we've gotta get out of here.
(7:26:37 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Yes, to the Benzoan capital. They insisted on coming to get us in their transport.
(7:26:50 PM) MajDougMcKnight: But to do that, it'd help if we were in one piece. So come on, Doc. Coffee break's over.
(7:27:00 PM) Kiley Airell: ::tries to stand up, falls back down to a seated position as head starts to pound out of control:
(7:27:31 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::slides down the wall:: Physician, heal thyself.
(7:27:44 PM) Kiley Airell: ::opens her special "atlantis" med kit and digs around in it::
(7:27:57 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: (I've always wanted to say that in a sim :v )
(7:28:33 PM) Kiley Airell: ::grabs a hypo of something and injects it into her arm::
(7:29:03 PM) Kiley Airell: ::winces slightly as the medicine slowly starts totake effect::
(7:29:10 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: I hope you brought enough for everyone,
(7:29:17 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Frowns:: We might want to conserve those meds as much as we can; no telling when we might need them. It's a long way up to civilization.
(7:29:32 PM) cmdr shelev: This isn't civilization?
(7:29:51 PM) cmdr shelev: We have running water in the form of broken pipes and electricity in the form of the sun.
(7:30:03 PM) Kiley Airell: If this was a normal med kit, I wouldn't even have had any . . . but, after all the away missions I've been on with this ship, I specially pack my kits in a non standard way
(7:30:17 PM) Kiley Airell: ::grabs the med tricorder and scans herself quickly::
(7:30:42 PM) Kiley Airell: ::notices nothing really big, outside of the major concussion::
(7:31:11 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Certainly not the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in.
(7:31:22 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::moves around opposite McKnight, looking down at Kiley, remaining silent::
(7:31:33 PM) Kiley Airell: ::slowly starts to stand::
(7:31:40 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::offers her arm::
(7:32:03 PM) Kiley Airell: ::this time the head only pounds a little, takes TKirrs hand:: thanks
(7:32:17 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::looks over Kiley with concern::
(7:32:42 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::having slid all the way down the wall, he sits and leans against it::
(7:33:12 PM) Kiley Airell: ::quickly scans TKirr for any injuries:: I'll be fine, the meds just take a while to get full effect.
(7:33:39 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::looks at Blackthorne meaningfully:: The Admiral needs your attention.
(7:34:24 PM) Kiley Airell: And vulcans are notorious for acting like they aren't injured and then dropping into comas because they couldn't compansate anymore.
(7:34:45 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::turns to Kiley with a perk of a brow::
(7:34:49 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: I really have to stop arriving at strange new worlds amidst falling flaming balls of wreckage.
(7:35:01 PM) Kiley Airell: ::sees the scans don't show anything drastic, slowly moves over to the Admiral::
(7:35:08 PM) cmdr shelev: Or at least start packing a parachute
(7:35:16 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Had one last time, actually
(7:35:54 PM) cmdr shelev: That time it was your own damn fault though.
(7:36:21 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Backseat fighter pilots, sheesh.
(7:36:41 PM) Kiley Airell: ::scans the admiral and gives him an injection of TriOx and her "special" pain med::
(7:36:44 PM) cmdr shelev: ::whistles::
(7:36:54 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Oh, the good stuff.
(7:37:41 PM) Kiley Airell: yeah . . . I have enough of the pain meds to treat 5 people for up to 7 days.
(7:37:51 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Well, that's good to know.
(7:37:55 PM) Kiley Airell: ::moves over to Shelev and scans him::
(7:38:08 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::waits for the pain med to kick in:
(7:38:20 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Props himself up against the wall, wincing as he gets to his feet as it agitates his broken ribs, and moves to the door to take over the watch while Shelev is treated::
(7:38:21 PM) cmdr shelev: It'll grow back.
(7:38:25 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::approaches in Kiley's wake and crouches next to Ian::
(7:38:56 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::to T'Kirr:: I imagine you're tired of arriving at our destinations like this as well.
(7:39:19 PM) Kiley Airell: ::quickly treats the Commander::
(7:39:29 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::nods:: We have more company this time.
(7:39:59 PM) LCdr TKirr: And last time, we had no intention of landing at all.
(7:40:15 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Both true. But our dress uniforms are soiled.
(7:40:19 PM) Kiley Airell: ::moves over to McKnight and treats him:: Sorry, I couldn't pack the bone healer in my bag . . . best I can do at this time is tape of your ribs and medicate the hell out of ya.
(7:40:21 PM) cmdr shelev: Woe.
(7:40:53 PM) Kiley Airell: ((tape of should be tape up)
(7:41:10 PM) LCdr TKirr: ((Just tape it off, he doesn't need 'em =P))
(7:41:44 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (Smart cookie.) The tape will be fine, thank you.
(7:41:48 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::starts to stand as he feels the pain meds kick in::
(7:42:11 PM) Kiley Airell: ::tapes up his ribs and injects him with a special med cocktail::
(7:42:37 PM) MajDougMcKnight: That's...really not what I meant. But thanks.
(7:42:42 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::stands as well, looking over at McKnight and Kiley, feeling useless with no scanner in hand::
(7:43:06 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::gets to his feet pushing off the wall::
(7:43:32 PM) Kiley Airell: ::looks over to TKirr:: I've got a medical tricorder that could be rewired to provide some limited scanning.
(7:43:47 PM) Kiley Airell: ((I mean an EXTRA med tri))
(7:43:59 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::nods to Shelev:: I have mine. He's using it right now.
(7:44:08 PM) cmdr shelev: Would you like it back?
(7:44:18 PM) LCdr TKirr: Not until we leave.
(7:44:32 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Speaking of leaving.
(7:44:40 PM) Kiley Airell: did I miss anyone?
(7:46:13 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Hobbles out of the chair and staggers around a bit.::
(7:47:23 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Tilts his head to the side, as if straining to listen:: Anyone else hear that?
(7:47:46 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::perks her ears, listening::
(7:48:01 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Yes.
(7:48:10 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ACTION> McKnight refers to what for the moment is just a distant humming noise, but one that quickly picks up volume, to the point that it can be recognized as vehicles of some kind.
(7:48:36 PM) cmdr shelev: Who has a weapon. ((More as an order to McKnight than a question))
(7:49:09 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::finds his sidearm still securely at his side::
(7:49:47 PM) cmdr shelev: I recommend we take the back door.
(7:50:22 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Rolls his eyes as he pulls up his pant leg, to reveal a small type one phaser secured there. Removing it, he tosses it to Shelev as he instintively checks the setting on his larger sidearm.::
(7:50:52 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::loud whisper:: Everyone, get down.
(7:51:20 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::hand on phaser at her belt, looks around in alarm as she crouches down::
(7:51:26 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Fumbles the catch a bit and sinks to fit under the windowsill.::
(7:51:30 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Major, T'Kirr, cover the door, Kiley and Shelev on the window.
(7:51:38 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::draws his phaser::
(7:51:45 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::nods and moves ahead, pulling her weapon::
(7:52:07 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Scoots to the left and raises up to the side of the window.::
(7:52:10 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Crouches down:: While it's my job to be the paranoid one, I should point out we don't know anything yet. I admit, this is an oddly fast response time for a planet of bureaucrats, but we don't know they're hostile yet. One of
(7:52:39 PM) MajDougMcKnight: us needs to at least do some quick recon.
(7:53:14 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: We're assuming hostile in this environment until identified otherwise.
(7:53:29 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Fair enough.
(7:54:02 PM) Kiley Airell: ::moves over to the window with shelev::
(7:54:11 PM) Kiley Airell: ((I have to be heading to work))
(7:54:44 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ACTION> If Shelev can get a view from where he's standing, Blackthorne's attitude DOES seem to be tentatively justified, as a half dozen men with assorted energy weapons begin combing over the crash site.
(7:54:47 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ((Okay, see you next time. ))
(7:54:51 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (Alrighty, have fun.)
(7:55:06 PM) LCdr TKirr: ((Thanks for healin' us =P))
(7:55:25 PM) cmdr shelev: OK those aren't bureacrats.
(7:55:28 PM) cmdr shelev: Or firemen.
(7:55:32 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: How many?
(7:55:47 PM) cmdr shelev: I count five.
(7:56:32 PM) MajDougMcKnight: What are they doing?
(7:56:57 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Watches one of them pull something from the wreckage and stash it in his coat.:: Pillaging.
(7:57:18 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Weapons?
(7:57:22 PM) cmdr shelev: Yes
(7:57:30 PM) cmdr shelev: All of them are carrying.
(7:57:31 PM) Kiley Airell: ((go ahead and action me however works best))
(7:57:35 PM) Kiley Airell: ((night night))
(7:57:35 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: We made a nice trail here.
(7:57:45 PM) cmdr shelev: I again bring up the back door.
(7:58:21 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: What back door.
(7:59:05 PM) cmdr shelev: The one upstairs that exits onto a fire escape.
(7:59:33 PM) cmdr shelev: Of course if they see us up there we're still dead.
(7:59:43 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: I almost like our odds in the firefight better than a disused fire escape.
(8:00:10 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: There must be another first level entrance in this building.
(8:00:16 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Shrug:: You're the brass. ::Flicks the safety. He thinks it's the safety.::
(8:01:03 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Armed looters don't concern us. If they come in here, then we know we've got a problem. Either way, we'll need someone to act as a rear guard, and that's my job, unless you really do prefer to make our stand here, sir.
(8:01:10 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Okay, let's move out, deeper into the building.
(8:01:29 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::gets back to his feet avoiding the window::
(8:01:50 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::moves up from her defensive position::
(8:03:04 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: I'm on point, McKnight take up the rear.
(8:03:45 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Nods, already lagging behind just a bit, just enough to stay in sight of the others but ensure he'll be the first one under fire if they're followed.::
(8:04:13 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::;starts making his way out into the hallway and away from the door they came in::
(8:04:32 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::follows, phaser pointed down::
(8:05:28 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::the hallway is dark, dusty, and decrepit, feeling like it could collapse at any sneeze::
(8:06:36 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::phaser pointed ahead, he moves down the hallways at a fast but cautious clip::
(8:07:23 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Time to break that tricorder out again, I think. If the rest of the building is like this, being able to track their positions will be a rather huge strategic edge...unless they brought one too, but I'd like to think our luck isn't
(8:07:29 PM) MajDougMcKnight: THAT bad.
(8:07:38 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::peers into the darkness, then holds a hand out to Shelev and looks pointedly at the scanner, with a look that asks, "Are you using that?"
(8:08:09 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Hands the scanner back to T'Kirr.:: (I think I did that earlier but AIM ate it)
(8:08:11 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Right, but I don't intend to stay here that much longer. One star accomodations at best.
(8:08:24 PM) cmdr shelev: We haven't had breakfast, don't be hasty.
(8:09:06 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::flips the device open punches a few colored panels, then points:: I'm reading an exit down this path. Seventy meters.
(8:09:33 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Breakfast can wait. ::moves that way::
(8:10:01 PM) cmdr shelev: Damn right.
(8:10:05 PM) MajDougMcKnight: What about our friends? Any sign of them?
(8:10:13 PM) LCdr TKirr: Not within the building.
(8:11:14 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: I imagine they're not waiting just outside the exit.
(8:12:29 PM) LCdr TKirr: I would not recommend venturing toward that exit if they were.
(8:12:47 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Of course. ::keeps moving that way::
(8:12:57 PM) cmdr shelev: She's so crafty.
(8:13:53 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Sometimes you just have to be sure the tricorder is working.
(8:14:04 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::gets to the exit::
(8:14:56 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: No new friends outside?
(8:15:15 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::checks again:: No.
(8:15:57 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::pushes open the door, which instead of opening, falls off its hinges::
(8:16:30 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::cringes as the door bangs loudly against a pile of scrap::
(8:16:51 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: i take it back. Half a star.
(8:17:57 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::to T'Kirr:: What's around us?/
(8:18:12 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::stops suddenly, frowning at the tricorder and punching at the panel::
(8:19:08 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::swallows, eyes wide and looks around them, as if looking for something:: My... the scanner's range has just been halved.
(8:19:29 PM) cmdr shelev: To what?
(8:19:35 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: What could cause that?
(8:19:41 PM) MajDougMcKnight: How the hell does that...what he said.
(8:20:04 PM) LCdr TKirr: To less than what we can see in certain directions. Certain jamming signals can do that.
(8:20:23 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Okay, we do it the old fashioned way.
(8:21:13 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::looks around and picks a direction that he thinks looks better than the others but it actually looks like all the other directions::
(8:21:27 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: We go that way. ::points::
(8:22:04 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::glances around wearily:: They must know we're here. This signal wasn't activated until a moment ago, and it's most likely local.
(8:22:06 PM) MajDougMcKnight: What I wouldn't give for one of those hover bikes they showed up on right now.
(8:22:43 PM) MajDougMcKnight: We COULD try doubling back. Even halved tricorder range will beat eyesight in pitch black.
(8:23:01 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: We're not staying in that building.
(8:23:15 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Then we should hustle, sir.
(8:23:23 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Move out, doubletime.
(8:23:34 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::sets out in that direction.
(8:23:45 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::hurries along::
(8:23:51 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Follows orders while weaving around like a drunk.::
(8:24:00 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(8:24:02 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(8:24:06 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIm
(8:24:06 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::pauses::
(8:24:18 PM) cmdr shelev: ::pause trip fall::
(8:24:31 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Poor Shelev. :(
(8:25:21 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Good sim though.
(8:25:45 PM) LCdr TKirr: Had all of us. =)
(8:25:54 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Yes, but we still have to find Bastila.
(8:25:57 PM) MajDougMcKnight: I mean...escape.
(8:26:18 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Uppity bitch can fend for herself.
(8:26:33 PM) MajDougMcKnight: But she has an aaaaaaaaccent.
(8:26:49 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: So did Julia Child.
(8:27:49 PM) cmdr shelev: She misplaced her lightsaber though
(8:27:56 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Definitely good to see sims that have all of us.
(8:28:08 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: She LOST her saber.
(8:29:49 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Anyway, that's all for this week!
(8:29:53 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Dismissed!
(8:29:56 PM) cmdr shelev: late
(8:29:58 PM) cmdr shelev left the room.
(8:30:46 PM) LCdr TKirr left the room.
(8:30:52 PM) MajDougMcKnight left the room.
