7:02:50 PM lcdrtkirr: 'Ello.

7:03:02 PM vadmblackthorne: Hey hey

7:15:27 PM vadmblackthorne: Well this looks promising.

7:15:41 PM lcdrtkirr: Hehe

7:21:02 PM vadmblackthorne: Ah well.

7:21:13 PM lcdrtkirr: Meh.

7:22:49 PM vadmblackthorne: Yeah. :(

7:23:20 PM lcdrtkirr: Just don't tell my husband hehe

7:23:38 PM vadmblackthorne: Hm?

7:24:12 PM lcdrtkirr: He went with a couple friends on a boat to watch the Christmas boats

7:24:29 PM lcdrtkirr: I told him I couldn't go 'cause I had sim, hehe

7:24:36 PM vadmblackthorne: Awwwwwww, that sucks. :(

7:25:05 PM lcdrtkirr: Eh, don't know that I care which way or the other, but he wanted me along

7:27:47 PM vadmblackthorne: Ah well, I appreciate you being here. :)

7:28:10 PM lcdrtkirr: Hehe, yay, points for me!

7:29:40 PM vadmblackthorne: Maybe sometime we can write another log again or something.

7:30:03 PM lcdrtkirr: Yeah if we can come up with something to write about. =P

7:33:45 PM vadmblackthorne: Yeah, we're kinda limited in this situation we're stuck in, but not completely.

7:34:05 PM lcdrtkirr: Not completely, no.

7:37:13 PM vadmblackthorne: What's tripping us up is that we passed the major event we planned and don't have anything else planned out.

7:47:29 PM lcdrtkirr: Oh, hello there...

7:49:03 PM cmdrshelev: welcome to erf

7:49:10 PM vadmblackthorne: McKnight's on his way in.

7:49:49 PM majdougmcknight: Hey, folks.  Sorry for the rather drastic tardiness.

7:50:22 PM majdougmcknight: But no force choking!

7:50:46 PM lcdrtkirr: Hehe

7:50:53 PM vadmblackthorne: Heh, okay then!

7:51:01 PM cmdrshelev: ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff

7:51:01 PM vadmblackthorne: A little late, but better late than never.

7:54:01 PM vadmblackthorne: Okay, let's get started.

7:54:19 PM cmdrshelev: Someone else blow the whistle my mouth hurts

7:54:28 PM lcdrtkirr: ::grabs the whistle::

7:54:39 PM lcdrtkirr: TWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEETpppptth

7:54:43 PM cmdrshelev: fail

7:55:44 PM vadmblackthorne: Tonight we're in our hiding place, the abandoned trainmen's quarters in the disused subway.

7:56:55 PM vadmblackthorne: We have had a night's rest and time to tend to new wounds.

7:57:06 PM majdougmcknight: Woo! 

7:57:48 PM lcdrtkirr: Yay for new wounds.... I mean

7:58:06 PM vadmblackthorne: Stomachs, however, are rumbling...

7:58:26 PM lcdrtkirr: ::squints, peering at the others suspiciously::

7:58:34 PM majdougmcknight: Screw that!  I gets to keep me leg!

7:59:10 PM vadmblackthorne: Okay then.

7:59:12 PM vadmblackthorne: BEGIN SIM

7:59:13 PM vadmblackthorne: BEGIN SIM

7:59:15 PM vadmblackthorne: BEGIN SIM

7:59:39 PM vadmblackthorne: ::sitting up on a rickety cot, gathering his wits::

8:00:01 PM cmdrshelev: ::Saws logs::

8:00:03 PM lcdrtkirr: ::sits huddled on a bench, looking cold::

8:00:12 PM majdougmcknight: ::Nods from the door.  If his leg is better, it stands to reason he's taken up a watch::  Morning, Admiral.

8:00:36 PM vadmblackthorne: Major. Got the eggs and bacon ready?

8:00:40 PM lcdrtkirr: ((Oh, guess I'm asleep))

8:01:23 PM lcdrtkirr: ::asleep with her head resting on her knees, arms locked around her legs::

8:02:48 PM majdougmcknight: You bet.  If by eggs and bacon, you mean a phasered rat...and if by rat, you mean something that passes for one.

8:03:07 PM vadmblackthorne: I was afraid of that.

8:03:27 PM lcdrtkirr: ((rofl))

8:04:27 PM vadmblackthorne: First order of the day should be to find food and water then.

8:05:27 PM lcdrtkirr: ::prompted towards consciousness from the conversation around her, blinks her eyes and begins to stir::

8:06:21 PM cmdrshelev: ::SNNNNNNNGGHHHHHHHHHHH-                                                ssssssssssssssssssssssss::

8:06:23 PM majdougmcknight: They must have gotten water down here SOMEHOW.  It stands to reason there must be plumbing around here somewhere. 

8:06:38 PM majdougmcknight: ...of course, I didn't see any water filtration equipment in that med kit.

8:07:04 PM lcdrtkirr: ::takes in a deep breath and extends her legs, stretching the stiffness from her muscles::

8:07:06 PM vadmblackthorne: There were a few tablets.

8:07:14 PM vadmblackthorne: Morning, Commander.

8:07:25 PM vadmblackthorne: Well, as far as we can tell down here, it's morning.

8:07:33 PM lcdrtkirr: ::clears her throat ineffectually:: Good morning.

8:09:57 PM vadmblackthorne: ::gets up, stretches, and casually kicks Shelev's bunk::

8:11:08 PM lcdrtkirr: ::peers sidelong in Shelev's direction with disinterest before standing up and rubbing her arms vigorously::

8:11:25 PM cmdrshelev: ::SSSSSSNNNNNNNNNGack:: ?

8:12:35 PM vadmblackthorne: ::walks on past in a circle and then sits back down::

8:12:47 PM lcdrtkirr: ::approaches McKnight:: How was your watch?  Uneventful, I assume?

8:12:58 PM majdougmcknight: ::Looks over at T'Kirr sympathetically::  Sorry, it's no Mount Selaya down here.  My dress jacket is pretty torn up, but it's over on the cot if you want it.

8:13:19 PM vadmblackthorne: Speaking of these blasted uniforms.

8:13:42 PM vadmblackthorne: We need to find clothes that are less... uniform.

8:13:50 PM lcdrtkirr: ::twists to look over at the offered jacket, then returns to nod at McKnight appreciatively::

8:14:22 PM lcdrtkirr: What would you suggest?

8:14:24 PM majdougmcknight: I'd tend to agree, sir.  Unfortunately, I doubt we'll find many afforably priced boutiques down here.

8:14:33 PM majdougmcknight: (affordably)

8:14:41 PM cmdrshelev: ::wakes up:: Aye?

8:15:10 PM vadmblackthorne: Perhaps the employees here left something behind if the lockers aren't all stripped clean.

8:15:36 PM cmdrshelev: What are we looking for again?

8:15:53 PM majdougmcknight: Explore the facility then?  I could do with a change of scenery.

8:16:39 PM vadmblackthorne: Good call.

8:16:49 PM vadmblackthorne: ::stands up and stretches:: Let's get a move on.

8:17:07 PM cmdrshelev: ::stands up and:: GAGH.

8:17:11 PM cmdrshelev: I'll live.

8:17:16 PM cmdrshelev: My back won't, but I will.

8:17:20 PM cmdrshelev: Maybe.

8:17:25 PM cmdrshelev: What's for breakfast?

8:17:30 PM vadmblackthorne: Phasered rat.

8:17:36 PM cmdrshelev: Needs garlic.

8:17:47 PM vadmblackthorne: Or something we might be able to trade for after we find less  conspicuous attire.

8:17:53 PM vadmblackthorne: I daresay I've soiled my cuffs.

8:17:59 PM lcdrtkirr: ::wanders over to the cot and picks up McKnight's jacket:

8:18:55 PM vadmblackthorne: ::wishes his uniform had a jacket like the Marine one::

8:19:03 PM lcdrtkirr: I recall a few dead men upstairs.  ::shrugs partway into the jacket::

8:20:02 PM vadmblackthorne: Let's go.  ::moves toward the door deeper into the complex::

8:20:50 PM lcdrtkirr: ::follows somewhat stiffly, hugging the jacket about her shoulders::

8:21:17 PM lcdrtkirr: ::to McKnight:: Do you have the tricorder?

8:21:37 PM vadmblackthorne: ::opens the door which falls off its hinges::

8:21:40 PM vadmblackthorne: I sense a trend.

8:21:49 PM lcdrtkirr: ::jumps and stares::

8:22:17 PM vadmblackthorne: ::goes on through::

8:22:54 PM lcdrtkirr: ::steps on the rickety door on her way past::

8:23:02 PM majdougmcknight: ::Without a word, McKnight tosses the tricorder, which he'd been using as a proximity alarm during his watch to the science officer, before bringing the blaster rifle he'd "borrowed" up into firing position,

8:23:08 PM majdougmcknight: and follows Blackthorne out.::

8:24:43 PM lcdrtkirr: ::flips open the tricorder and takes a quick scan::

8:24:50 PM vadmblackthorne: Anyone else alive down here?

8:25:58 PM lcdrtkirr: Only a few members of the rodent family.

8:26:45 PM vadmblackthorne: And they aren't of unusual size?

8:27:04 PM lcdrtkirr: ::blinks at Blackthorne:: What do you mean?

8:27:17 PM vadmblackthorne: No giant rats, just normal ones, correct?

8:28:07 PM lcdrtkirr: As far as I can tell.  Although, I don't know what's 'normal' for this planet, as I didn't preview the files on wildlife before coming.

8:28:23 PM majdougmcknight: ::Grins::  See, day's looking up already!  All the same, I think I'll be writing a less than glowing letter to this planet's board of tourism once we get out of here.

8:28:55 PM vadmblackthorne: Breakfast leaves a bit to be desired.

8:29:16 PM majdougmcknight: I've gotten better service from a Jem'Hadar.

8:30:22 PM vadmblackthorne: ::moves on into the next room and finds it bare::

8:30:47 PM vadmblackthorne: Not the VIP quarters.

8:30:50 PM lcdrtkirr: ::has no intention of having rats for breakfast::

8:31:16 PM majdougmcknight: (Oh right, vegetarian.  She's screwed.)

8:32:25 PM vadmblackthorne: ::moves on down the hall and up a flight of stairs::

8:33:00 PM lcdrtkirr: ::climbs the stairs with purpose, hoping to warm up::

8:33:05 PM vadmblackthorne: ::tries the door at the top and finds it actually locked::

8:33:56 PM majdougmcknight: ::Points his rifle::  If I may, sir?

8:34:21 PM lcdrtkirr: ::steps back with McKnight's obvious intention::

8:34:25 PM vadmblackthorne: ::steps out of the way:: By all means.

8:35:36 PM lcdrtkirr: ::bumps into Shelev::

8:36:19 PM cmdrshelev: ?

8:36:28 PM lcdrtkirr: ((mistake))

8:37:11 PM majdougmcknight: ::And with authorization given, a volley of plasma bursts come screaming out of the gun's barrel, leaving the lock destroyed, and the metal door glowing slightly from the heat.  This, he immediately holds his hands up to:: 

8:37:27 PM majdougmcknight: Oh, that's nice.

8:37:47 PM lcdrtkirr: ::raises an eyebrow::

8:38:27 PM vadmblackthorne: ::puts his hands up to the door as well:: Mmm. Nice.

8:38:45 PM cmdrshelev: Pfft, sissies.

8:39:14 PM vadmblackthorne: Just because Andor is naturally near absolute zero doesn't mean we like it that cold.

8:39:20 PM majdougmcknight: ::A moment later, with a slightly sheepish grin, steps back from the door:: 

8:39:35 PM cmdrshelev: Point stands.

8:40:01 PM majdougmcknight: Fair enough, Commander.  Should we bring up your heroic battle with the neon sign?

8:40:23 PM vadmblackthorne: ::chuckles::

8:41:14 PM lcdrtkirr: ::decides to wait where she stands for the men to finish with the door so she can go through it::

8:41:39 PM cmdrshelev: There is dignity in loss, sir.

8:41:42 PM vadmblackthorne: ::nudges the door with his boot::

8:42:20 PM vadmblackthorne: ::watches it swing open and not fall off its hinges::

8:43:02 PM vadmblackthorne: Remarkable.

8:43:13 PM lcdrtkirr: It was locked.

8:43:48 PM vadmblackthorne: There's a certain quality to doors I'd come to expect.

8:43:49 PM majdougmcknight: Now it's not.  So let's loot while the looting's good.

8:44:36 PM vadmblackthorne: ::goes on in to find the quarters proper, with rows of better looking cots along with a storage closet::

8:44:54 PM vadmblackthorne: ::there are a few traces of the former occupants, in the manner of skeletons in some of the cots::

8:44:59 PM lcdrtkirr: ::eyes glue to the closet hopefully::'

8:45:23 PM majdougmcknight: Any clues what killed them?

8:45:36 PM cmdrshelev: I would wager being down here was enough.

8:45:38 PM cmdrshelev: Lord

8:45:40 PM cmdrshelev: j;adklsfj;adsfkj

8:45:48 PM cmdrshelev: ((remove last two lines from the log sir))

8:46:15 PM cmdrshelev: There's enough hazardous materials in this air to poison someone in a matter of days, I'd wager.

8:46:40 PM majdougmcknight: Well, isn't that a cheery thought?

8:46:50 PM vadmblackthorne: And you just now mention this?

8:47:52 PM lcdrtkirr: We won't be here long enough to be in danger.  ::pushes toward the storage closet and pulls on the handle:

8:48:22 PM cmdrshelev: Previously I was occupied by my back being roasted.

8:48:24 PM vadmblackthorne: ACTION> The closet opens up, revealing a cache of tools for working on trains as well as uniforms, that though musty and old, are intact.

8:48:26 PM majdougmcknight: Well, I guess that explains why the locals steer clear of the place then.

8:48:42 PM cmdrshelev: That's ok, we're from SPACE.

8:49:36 PM lcdrtkirr: ::steps aside to allow the contents to be plainly seen by the others::

8:50:21 PM majdougmcknight: ::Peruses the closet's contents::  Well, I still wouldn't want to draw too much attention in these, but at least now we'll just scream "weirdos", not "Star Fleet".

8:50:25 PM vadmblackthorne: Alright. Remove your rank insignia and commbadges, pocket them, and find something that fits you. Remove all insignia from those uniforms as well.

8:50:56 PM lcdrtkirr: ::reaches in and pulls out a promising size::

8:50:57 PM vadmblackthorne: From now on, no more referring of anyone else by rank.

8:51:19 PM cmdrshelev: ::Finds one that looks somewhat free of maggots.::

8:51:58 PM vadmblackthorne: ((Maggots wouldn't be in there with nothing to eat (AKA dead flesh)

8:52:00 PM lcdrtkirr: ((Why the hell would maggots be in dusty old clothing))

8:52:11 PM cmdrshelev: ((because I am dumb and trying to guard mine in AB))

8:52:18 PM lcdrtkirr: ((Moths... he meant moths...))

8:52:19 PM majdougmcknight: (They're ALIEN maggots!)

8:52:32 PM cmdrshelev: ((moths work :v: RETCON))

8:52:43 PM vadmblackthorne: ((PARAMOUNT IS FUCKING US AGAIN!!!)

8:53:15 PM vadmblackthorne: ::finds one that looks about right::

8:53:29 PM lcdrtkirr: ::pulls the uniform over hers, thankful for another layer::

8:53:41 PM majdougmcknight: ::Busies himself trying to remove a badge without ripping a hole in his uniform::  Suppose those tools still work?  I wouldn't mind having some bartering items we wouldn't miss later on.

8:53:47 PM vadmblackthorne: ::takes off his Admiral's pips and commbadge::

8:53:56 PM vadmblackthorne: It's a thought.

8:53:57 PM lcdrtkirr: ::finds it a little baggy, but suitable::

8:54:35 PM cmdrshelev: ::Pulls off his insignia and combadge, tosses his destroyed jacket in the cabinet, pulls on a trainman's coat::

8:54:39 PM majdougmcknight: ::Removes his uniform tie and makes to toss it, but after a moment's consideration, clearly changes his mind, and pockets the thing.::

8:55:25 PM vadmblackthorne: ::pockets the pips and badge, and removes a logo of some sort from the "new" uniform::

8:55:42 PM vadmblackthorne: ::pulls it on over his own, then goes deeper into the closet and finds a jacket::

8:56:31 PM vadmblackthorne: ::finds one that fits him and puts it on, thinking rather warm and comfortable::

8:56:56 PM majdougmcknight: ::Figures his white uniform shirt won't look too out of place along with the native garb, and so he simply pulls the maintenence worker jacket over it.::  Yeah, this works.  Got a nice Han Solo feel to it.

8:57:11 PM vadmblackthorne: ::grabs one about T'Kirr's size and emerges with it, tosses it to her::

8:57:19 PM lcdrtkirr: ::catches it:: Thanks.

8:57:57 PM lcdrtkirr: ::wraps the jacket tightly around herself, twitching her nose trying not to sneeze in the stirred-up dust::

8:58:32 PM vadmblackthorne: A marked improvement in our state of affairs.

8:58:44 PM vadmblackthorne: This room is far more secure than where we spent last night, as well.

8:58:49 PM cmdrshelev: We look like suitably passable bums if I may sayso myself.

8:58:55 PM cmdrshelev: It has skeletons in it, though.

8:59:01 PM vadmblackthorne: Skeletons are harmless.

8:59:03 PM majdougmcknight: Rather well armed bums.

8:59:08 PM vadmblackthorne: At least we're warm.

8:59:11 PM cmdrshelev: Plus McKnight blew the door up.

9:00:22 PM vadmblackthorne: Now, breakfast.

9:00:28 PM majdougmcknight: Yeah, sorry.  I'll remember to bring my lock picking stuff next time we crash and burn on a routine diplomatic mission.

9:00:39 PM lcdrtkirr: ((lol))

9:01:04 PM vadmblackthorne: ::smiles:: We're going to need to barter for food, since hunting's out of the question.

9:01:26 PM lcdrtkirr: ::looks casually over the tools, attempting to ascertain the use of each one::

9:02:12 PM vadmblackthorne: And, to do this, we need to blend in even more.

9:02:23 PM majdougmcknight: ::Nods::  While I don't like the thought of staying down her longer than we have to, it would probably be safer if just one or two of us go scouting for the marketplace.

9:02:31 PM majdougmcknight: (here)

9:02:46 PM vadmblackthorne: My thoughts exactly. Whoever wants us dead is looking for five Starfleet officers.

9:03:08 PM majdougmcknight: Kiley> Damn straight.

9:03:47 PM lcdrtkirr: ((haha))

9:04:22 PM lcdrtkirr: ::swallows as she accepts this, waiting for the inevitable order that will split them up::

9:04:35 PM vadmblackthorne: Shelev, McKnight. You two, take what tools you can, and the nonessential medicine.

9:06:01 PM cmdrshelev: Who's bad cop?

9:06:06 PM cmdrshelev: He's bad cop.

9:06:07 PM cmdrshelev: Right.

9:06:13 PM cmdrshelev: ::Plunders::

9:06:26 PM majdougmcknight: ::Nods, then glances at Blackthorne's dual pistols::  Trade ya...Ian.  Not sure they'll take kindly to  super aggressive haggling.

9:06:58 PM vadmblackthorne: Well, that rifle certainly has held its own. ::Offers McKnight the pistols::

9:07:37 PM lcdrtkirr: ::holds out the tricorder, offering it to Shelev::

9:07:46 PM majdougmcknight: ::Handing over the rifle, McKnight shoves one pistol into his jacket, before offering the second to Shelev::

9:08:16 PM majdougmcknight: ::Unless he's already picked out his ghetto planet thug gear from before::

9:08:50 PM vadmblackthorne: ::takes the rifle and checks it out::

9:08:53 PM cmdrshelev: ::Takes the tricorder and pockets it.::

9:09:28 PM cmdrshelev: I'll make sure to bring the pistol back.

9:09:35 PM cmdrshelev: Unless they offer us a good deal

9:10:32 PM vadmblackthorne: Alright, go get us some breakfast. Good hunting.

9:11:08 PM lcdrtkirr: ::missing her everpresent tricorder, has nothing to do with her hands so puts them behind her and stands patiently, waiting to see the two off::

9:11:26 PM majdougmcknight: ::Nods, tying off the top of a conveniently placed carrying sack with their hopes for meal tickets inside::  We'll be in touch.

9:11:46 PM lcdrtkirr: Be careful.

9:11:59 PM vadmblackthorne: We'll work on the plumbing situation.

9:13:01 PM majdougmcknight: ::Nods, with a half smile to T'Kirr, and heads off for the nearest ascending staircase::  Come on, good cop.

9:14:29 PM cmdrshelev: Thought I told you never to call me that. ::follows McKnight::

9:15:07 PM vadmblackthorne: ::looks to T'Kirr:: I would assume, being that these are living quarters, that the door there is the bathroom.

9:15:28 PM lcdrtkirr: You would be correct.

9:15:41 PM vadmblackthorne: Let's work on some clean water then.

9:15:46 PM vadmblackthorne: PAUSE SIM

9:15:47 PM vadmblackthorne: PAUSE SIM

9:15:48 PM vadmblackthorne: PAUSE SIM

9:15:55 PM lcdrtkirr: ::pauses::

9:16:06 PM majdougmcknight: ::Pauses as well::

9:16:43 PM vadmblackthorne: Well, nice to see us end up simming tonight. :)

9:16:50 PM lcdrtkirr: Agreed. ^_^

9:17:22 PM majdougmcknight: Yeah, sorry about that.

9:17:36 PM cmdrshelev: makin cash moneys

9:18:13 PM vadmblackthorne: Okay, McKnight can't come the next two weeks right?

9:18:33 PM lcdrtkirr: :-X

9:18:39 PM majdougmcknight: I'm afraid that is correct.  My overnight delivery shifts have been moved back a day to avoid Christmas and New Years.

9:18:52 PM vadmblackthorne: Alright. I'll be traveling those weeks as well.

9:19:18 PM vadmblackthorne: Though I could potentially make it to the sim, it'd be strained.

9:19:25 PM majdougmcknight: Well...good cop, bad cop log?

9:19:36 PM vadmblackthorne: That's what I'm thinking. We can resolve "next sim" in logs.

9:19:52 PM vadmblackthorne: And resume on January 9th.

9:19:52 PM lcdrtkirr: Cool.

9:19:59 PM majdougmcknight: Alrighty then.

9:20:27 PM cmdrshelev: ok we will work the google

9:20:29 PM cmdrshelev: later

9:20:35 PM majdougmcknight: Night.

9:20:36 PM cmdrshelev: now I am going to play san andreas

9:20:41 PM vadmblackthorne: Night folks, see you next year!

9:20:44 PM cmdrshelev: hay why don't we just pimp kielly for food

9:20:46 PM lcdrtkirr: See you two in a couple weeks. =)

9:20:53 PM majdougmcknight: Heh...wow, guess so.  Later.

9:20:59 PM cmdrshelev: lates

9:21:08 PM majdougmcknight: Hmmm...Kiley's probably hot, right?

9:21:17 PM majdougmcknight: You may be on to something.

9:21:35 PM lcdrtkirr: o.O

9:21:46 PM vadmblackthorne: Of course, who is ever ugly in a sim?

9:21:55 PM lcdrtkirr: Shelev.


9:21:58 PM lcdrtkirr: I mean...

9:22:05 PM vadmblackthorne: :iceburn:

9:23:30 PM majdougmcknight: Heh heh, later you crazy kids.

9:23:33 PM vadmblackthorne: Night!
