(6:59:41 PM) MisterBoxingBear: Hey.
(6:59:47 PM) MisterBoxingBear: I can't believe this shit!
(7:00:02 PM) MisterBoxingBear: It spends 5 hoursa downloading, then when it's finished, it says there's an error.
(7:00:10 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Aw shit.
(7:00:18 PM) MisterBoxingBear: Son of a bitch.

(7:06:17 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Alright then, let's get started by welcoming the next in the line of the curse, er Chief Engineer!

(7:07:03 PM) LCdr TKirr: Welcome, substi--err, Chief. =P
(7:07:15 PM) cmdr shelev: WHERE IS MY CHEESE >(
(7:07:23 PM) Lt Percy Busard: I ate it all. Nevermore.
(7:07:31 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Alright then.
(7:08:09 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Tonight, we've arrived at Andor so that Commander Shelev can get a new antenna cloned.
(7:09:16 PM) cmdr shelev: It is a long story.
(7:09:28 PM) cmdr shelev: It involves a neon sign and fast food.
(7:09:28 PM) Unable to send message: The message is too large.
(7:09:32 PM) cmdr shelev: (I am not kidding)
(7:09:38 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: (Argh, it cut my message off.)
(7:10:03 PM) LCdr TKirr: Last word was cloned
(7:10:04 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: T'Kirr, McKnight, and Blackthorne have accompanied Shelev to the starport and are awaiting customs clearance.
(7:10:24 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Lt. Busard is to meet us at the starport here having taken a freighter transport.
(7:10:38 PM) cmdr shelev: Hooray for missed rendezvous
(7:10:58 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Questions?
(7:11:09 PM) LCdr TKirr: I'm not gonna be sacrificed this episode, am I?
(7:11:30 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: I can neither confirm nor deny that.
(7:11:31 PM) LCdr TKirr: I don't wanna make a big green mess.
(7:11:36 PM) cmdr shelev: No that's the drummer
(7:11:56 PM) cmdr shelev: also the bassist but no one talks about him
(7:11:57 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Okay then!
(7:12:01 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(7:12:02 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(7:12:03 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(7:12:22 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::standing in line with the others, looking at a sea of blue and white::
(7:12:45 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: I wonder what the delay is.
(7:12:53 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::shifts the strap of her duffel along her shoulder, trying to think about promised sights and not the nervous looks of the customs officials::
(7:12:57 PM) cmdr shelev: ACTION> Welcome to Andor global spaceport! If you are in line, be patient. If you are not in line, please report to the nearest security substation to be detained.
(7:13:18 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: I think we're already being detained while in line.
(7:13:42 PM) cmdr shelev: ACTION> The line is moving fast as no one really expects trouble and most of the occupants are being palmscanned and permitted to pass.
(7:14:07 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::keeping an eye out for the new engineer that's supposed to arrive here::
(7:14:08 PM) cmdr shelev: Definitions are slightly off here.
(7:14:14 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::shuffles along::
(7:14:56 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Some random andorian has a red light appear above the palm scanner and he is ushered into a side area to have his bag searched.::
(7:15:12 PM) Lt Percy Busard: ::Right, I suppose that's her cue. Enter Lieutenant Busard, stage...left? Looking for her commander and those she was supposed to rendezvous with.::
(7:15:16 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Bureaucracy is the one constant in the universe.
(7:15:24 PM) cmdr shelev: And damn are we good at it.
(7:15:42 PM) MisterBoxingBear: I miss getting shot at already.
(7:16:28 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::swallows back a somewhat bitter remark::
(7:16:38 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: You may be crazy, Major. Have that looked at.
(7:17:12 PM) MisterBoxingBear: At least then I could MOVE.
(7:17:17 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Bags pass through the x-ray machine. The screen is showing bag after bag of random crap go past.::
(7:17:43 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Luggage, luggage, luggage, sealed diplomatic envelope, luggage, suitcase, luggage, tribble, luggage..::
(7:18:02 PM) cmdr shelev: ::The tribble is detained for questioning.::
(7:18:12 PM) LCdr TKirr: (rofl)
(7:18:17 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Poor tribble.
(7:18:24 PM) cmdr shelev: Probably forgot his papers.
(7:18:34 PM) cmdr shelev: ACTION> THE FRONT OF THE LINE
(7:18:49 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::puts his bag on the scanner::
(7:19:04 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::dumps her duffel gratefully on the counter::
(7:19:18 PM) cmdr shelev: Bored TSA guy> Hand on the scanner please, bags through x-ray, thank you.
(7:19:31 PM) cmdr shelev: Bored TSA guy> Hand on the scanner please, bags through x-ray, thank you.
(7:19:44 PM) cmdr shelev: ::T'kirr gets to the hand scanner.::
(7:19:45 PM) cmdr shelev: Bored TSA guy> Hand on the scanner please, bags through x-ray, thank you.
(7:19:51 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::waves her hand::
(7:20:14 PM) cmdr shelev: ::A soothing green light appears. T'Kirr is ushered to the other side where McKnight and Blackthorne are.
(7:20:34 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::says nothing, but is rather surprised::
(7:20:38 PM) cmdr shelev: Bored TSA guy> Hand on the scanner please, bags through x-ray, thank you.
(7:20:45 PM) Lt Percy Busard: (Lol) ::Walks to the person who greatly resembles the pictures she saw in logs.:: Uh...Admiral Blackthorne, sir?
(7:20:47 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::lets out the breath she was unaware of holding::
(7:20:50 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Shelev puts his hand on the scanner and it turns red.::
(7:21:10 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::turns from being surprised at T'Kirr, missing Shelev getting detained:: Yes?
(7:21:12 PM) cmdr shelev: Bored TSA guy> Sir, step to the side.
(7:21:17 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: You must be Lt. Busard.
(7:21:21 PM) cmdr shelev: asdfsdafasfsdfsdfasfdsafsdafasdfasdfsad
(7:21:39 PM) LCdr TKirr: (hahaha we lost the number one)
(7:22:13 PM) Lt Percy Busard: Yes, sir. I'm sorry for the delay, sir.
(7:22:14 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::looks over to see Busard greeting Blackthorne::
(7:22:16 PM) cmdr shelev: ACTION> Shelev is frisked and put in a chair. An andorian female (which are the tallest of the race) approaches and is visibly irritated that lunch was interrupted.
(7:22:34 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: It's a customs line. Delays are inevitable.
(7:22:49 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::offers a hand for a shake:: Welcome aboard.
(7:23:16 PM) cmdr shelev: :nyd: Sir, I am afraid ((no she's not)) we have to detain you until your background check is complete.
(7:23:29 PM) Lt Percy Busard: ::Smiles, shaking his hand:: Thank you very much, sir. It's a pleasure.
(7:23:31 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::comes forward to introduce herself::
(7:23:47 PM) cmdr shelev: Oh don't worry, I'm with them. ::Points to the three humans and a vulcan.::
(7:24:07 PM) MisterBoxingBear: (BRB)
(7:24:09 PM) cmdr shelev: :nyd: > Honey, I don't care who you with, you got a red light, you wait right here.
(7:24:11 PM) MisterBoxingBear left the room.
(7:24:31 PM) MajDougMcKnight entered the room.
(7:24:43 PM) LCdr TKirr: (WB)
(7:24:48 PM) Lt Percy Busard: (WB)
(7:24:59 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (Ah, that's better. And thanks. Right, who all had been let through?)
(7:25:24 PM) cmdr shelev: ((everyone but shelev))
(7:25:28 PM) cmdr shelev: ACTION> Some random guy who is blue appears with a print out.
(7:25:32 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (Poor Shelev.)
(7:25:33 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::extends a hand, following Human greeting customs:: Lieutenant T'Kirr, Chief Science.
(7:25:59 PM) LCdr TKirr: (Dunno.. maybe he won the Ando lottery)
(7:26:21 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (And the prize is a cavity search?)
(7:26:42 PM) Lt Percy Busard: ::She gladly shakes it, the smile widening still:: Great to meet you.
(7:26:48 PM) LCdr TKirr: (I dunno what Andorians like)
(7:26:50 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Commander, introduce yourse- ::turns::
(7:26:53 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Oh god.
(7:26:59 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::turns::
(7:27:19 PM) cmdr shelev: Random guy> Shelev<verylongunpronounceableandorian> ch'Rin you have an outstanding writ for damages to a Mr. TharinJar th'Rin.
(7:27:32 PM) Lt Percy Busard: ::Turns her head, quirking an eyebrow::
(7:27:38 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::brows furrow, not understanding where Shelev went::
(7:27:42 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::walks over to the barrier::
(7:27:43 PM) cmdr shelev: Oh, that old thing. Comes up every time. I'm with Starfleet, it's ok.
(7:27:51 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Excuse me!
(7:27:54 PM) cmdr shelev: :nyd: > Sir, step back from the detainee.
(7:28:09 PM) cmdr shelev: Don't worry, admiral, this happens every time!
(7:28:28 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: The "detainee" is my Executive Officer, a Commander in Starfleet, and is here on official business. *lies about that part*
(7:28:32 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::hurries over, almost running into Blackthorne's back as he's warded off::
(7:28:59 PM) Lt Percy Busard: ::Slowly wanders over curiously, just watching.::
(7:29:01 PM) cmdr shelev: Random guy> As is the laws of the planet of Andor, you are hereby granted 48 hours to make due your writ lest you be prohibited from leaving the planet.
(7:29:20 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Frowns as he just watches, out of his depth here. That's the REAL reason he misses getting shot at. What you can do about it is always blindingly obvious.::
(7:29:34 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Random guy rubberstamps Shelev's palm with invisible ink and checks with a blacklight that it stuck.::
(7:30:01 PM) LCdr TKirr: (McKnight.. low INT =/ )
(7:30:10 PM) cmdr shelev: Random guy> Thank you and enjoy your stay. ::Drops Shelev's bag in his lap and wanters off, muttering about how he is going to quit next week.::
(7:30:37 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (Please. He at least knew what the Law of Conservation of Mass was.)
(7:30:56 PM) LCdr TKirr: (Just saying, he normally doesn't need it, just shoots stuff)
(7:31:01 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Now what is that all about?
(7:31:04 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Shelev rejoins the group.:: That mess is never getting cleared up. Let's get McKnight's gear out of baggage claim and, um, leave. Quickly.
(7:31:05 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (Fine.)
(7:31:40 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Where's the nearest Star Fleet installation?
(7:31:58 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::looks around, as if it would have a big insignia pasted on the side of it::
(7:32:01 PM) cmdr shelev: 15 minutes by private car.
(7:32:21 PM) Lt Percy Busard: ::Is just looking around as if so say "Meh??"::
(7:32:34 PM) Lt Percy Busard: (*to say)
(7:32:39 PM) LCdr TKirr: (Meh!)
(7:32:46 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Alright then, get your gear and let's get out of here before someone else finds reason to arrest the Commander.
(7:32:57 PM) cmdr shelev: It's not an arrest, it's a detainment.
(7:32:59 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Finally remembers he hasn't done the introduction thing, and extends his hand as they move.:: Oh, right. Doug McKnight, goon squad.
(7:33:03 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Semantics.
(7:33:05 PM) cmdr shelev: I've been through a few hundred don't worry.
(7:33:10 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Lieutenant, a fine mess you've wandered into.
(7:33:24 PM) cmdr shelev: I told you to just drop me off.
(7:33:37 PM) Lt Percy Busard: Huh? Oh right. ::Shake, shake the hand:: Nice to...uh..yes, sir.
(7:33:37 PM) cmdr shelev: But you want to see THE MOUNTAINS.
(7:33:50 PM) LCdr TKirr: (Ack, just realized I called myself Lieutenant.. it's like I forgot my rank o.O)
(7:34:11 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: I didn't realize that you were wanted by the law.
(7:34:18 PM) cmdr shelev: I'm not wanted by the law.
(7:34:20 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::making for the bloody door::
(7:34:46 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::jogs to keep up::
(7:34:51 PM) cmdr shelev: I'm wanted by Tharin, but he was taken care of and never bothered to file the paperwork.
(7:35:05 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Bumbles, stumbles, fumbles down to baggage claim and waits around for McKnight's guns to come around on the big spinning thing.::
(7:35:20 PM) Lt Percy Busard: ::Hurrying after them, totally unclear on what the hell is going on.::
(7:35:37 PM) cmdr shelev: ((That's normal for any away team I'm in. ))
(7:35:49 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Just nods, his attention quickly wandering to the conveyor belt, where he watches for, and since it would make for a bad sim to actually reflect what a pain in the ass this is in real life, quickly finds a battleship grey suit
(7:36:05 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::doesn't even ask how he was taken care of::
(7:36:38 PM) MajDougMcKnight: suit case which he hoists up.:: You know, paranoia seems to pay off for us so often that I'm starting to wonder if we need a new word for it.
(7:37:02 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (Oh, and nix a "suit".)
(7:37:11 PM) cmdr shelev: Common sense?
(7:37:23 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Blind luck.
(7:37:43 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::follows the transportation signs::
(7:37:47 PM) cmdr shelev: No blind jokes here, they get a little nervous.
(7:37:49 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Shrugs:: They WORK, but they're lacking a certain flare. And that's coming from a marine.
(7:38:23 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Admittedly, an unusually chatty marine.::
(7:38:57 PM) cmdr shelev: Doesn't contain enough "fuck" "shit" and "foxhole" for you?
(7:39:11 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::exits to the transportation depot:: Okay, Commander, get us a car or whatever they use here.
(7:39:13 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::perks an eeybrow::
(7:39:22 PM) Lt Percy Busard: ::Tries really hard not to snicker as she follows::
(7:39:49 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Lieutenant, I realize you'd love to see the Atlantis's engineering department. So would I right now, but welcome to your first away mission with us.
(7:39:58 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::shivers in her heavy over-robe as the outside air surrounds her::
(7:40:00 PM) cmdr shelev: I had one arranged in advance. ::A shuttle with starfleet insignia pulls up.::
(7:40:14 PM) Lt Percy Busard: Uh...thanks, sir?
(7:40:23 PM) cmdr shelev: ::A Risan gets in the car and it leaves.::
(7:40:33 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: :::watches the car pull away::
(7:40:39 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Right.
(7:40:44 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Another shuttle with starfleet insignia pulls up.::
(7:40:55 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::wilts a little as the warm car drives away::
(7:41:21 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::wonders if a convention is going on::
(7:41:21 PM) cmdr shelev: Andorian shuttle driver> OI GET IN THE CAB FORE YI GIT SHUT
(7:41:28 PM) cmdr shelev: That's ours.
(7:41:31 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: This must be ours.
(7:41:34 PM) LCdr TKirr: (lol)
(7:41:35 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Grimaces slightly as he pulls his black coat a little closer to his neck.:: You know, "rank hath its priveledges" might as well apply to you by name, sir.
(7:41:45 PM) Lt Percy Busard: ::Nod nod::
(7:41:46 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Just saying.
(7:41:58 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::has no trouble being hurried into the cab::
(7:42:05 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Only in some places. :::gets in the damn car::
(7:42:22 PM) Lt Percy Busard: ::Wee, sitting in a cab::
(7:42:23 PM) cmdr shelev: ACTION> We all pile into the shuttle. The driver is an Andorian in a starfleet uniform who has the worst fucking cockney accent outside of Cardiff
(7:42:43 PM) LCdr TKirr: (Oh no)
(7:43:04 PM) MajDougMcKnight: 15 minutes, you said?
(7:43:08 PM) cmdr shelev: Driver> Og ta loi embassy, eh?
(7:43:15 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Right!
(7:43:20 PM) cmdr shelev: Driver> RIGHT
(7:43:32 PM) cmdr shelev: ACTION> The car takes off at tremendous speed.
(7:43:55 PM) cmdr shelev: Last time it was 15 minutes. Lou is going to try to break his record this time.
(7:43:59 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::is zoomed::
(7:44:12 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Mutters:: Good for him.
(7:44:21 PM) cmdr shelev: Lou> OI NG UNNA GIT SHUT YA TORNK
(7:44:33 PM) cmdr shelev: You can drop the accent. I don't owe these guys money.
(7:44:44 PM) Lt Percy Busard: ::Fidgets with something vaguely penshaped in her hands nervously::
(7:44:46 PM) cmdr shelev: Lou> Oh, all right. It's too damn fun being incomprehensible.
(7:44:50 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: I had wondered how an Andorian would get a cockney accent.
(7:45:13 PM) cmdr shelev: Lou> With Shelev around, no one wants to act like they're from around here.
(7:45:38 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::suddenly thinks the cold outside might not be so bad::
(7:45:41 PM) cmdr shelev: Lou> Did you ever tell 'em about the old mill and the brewery?
(7:45:55 PM) cmdr shelev: No and neither did you so drive.
(7:46:00 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Oh, you have those? Thank God.
(7:46:47 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: I'll have to get that out of you next time you drink.
(7:46:48 PM) cmdr shelev: Lou> Come out front after around 10 and I'll get you there. You'll have to leave Shelev though, they don't like him round dem parts.
(7:47:11 PM) cmdr shelev: Lou> And the vulcan may have to stay outside but I think I can grease some wheels.
(7:47:19 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: What did you do anyway?
(7:47:34 PM) cmdr shelev: NOTHING it was a PRIVATE BUSINESS TRANSACTION.
(7:47:42 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::wonders how Shelev managed Commander::
(7:47:46 PM) cmdr shelev: Lou> It's a right mess it was.
(7:47:49 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Must not be terribly private.
(7:47:53 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Everyone bloody knows about it.
(7:48:02 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ALMOST everyone.
(7:48:07 PM) cmdr shelev: It's not something that would ever come offworld, don't worry.
(7:48:24 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: I'll bet Lt. Busard here even knows about it.
(7:48:33 PM) cmdr shelev: Lou> That's fer rot. You gonna try to dig up the grave again this time?
(7:48:34 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::looks over::

(7:49:22 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Oh, finally.
(7:49:24 PM) MajDougMcKnight: I suppose the place we need to go to get your atenna fixed up is inevitably somewhere in those parts he's talking about?
(7:49:28 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Thank you, um, Lou.
(7:49:37 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (antenna)
(7:49:41 PM) cmdr shelev: Lou> You can call me Cheswick.

(7:54:56 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Anyway, nothing to be done about that now, and so he just turns on his heel and follows, nodding in greeting to the well bundled marines on guard duty around the compound as Blackthorne does his thing.::
(7:55:38 PM) cmdr shelev: ::The politician is human, should have mentioned that::
(7:56:35 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: And you are, sir?
(7:57:04 PM) cmdr shelev: Politician> I'm Ambassador O'Rielly. I have no idea why they sent my irish butt all the way out here but here I am.
(7:57:32 PM) cmdr shelev: ((I know I hacked the spelling on that last name but I'm stuck with it now))
(7:57:33 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: O'Reilly! My father was Irish, good to meet you.
(7:58:14 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::waits nearby as the humanish make friends::
(7:58:32 PM) cmdr shelev: O'Reilly> Ah, someone from the old country. Good thing to see out here from time to time. I trust you met my valet, Charlo.
(7:58:49 PM) cmdr shelev: O'Reilly> Or did he do that terrible accent again?
(7:58:59 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: It was quite tragic.
(7:59:25 PM) Lt Percy Busard: ::Waits near T'Kirr. It seemed the best thing to do.::
(7:59:32 PM) Lt Percy Busard: (Brb)
(7:59:45 PM) cmdr shelev: O'Reilly> Yah, he likes to pull that one out to meet strangers. I don't think he gets it.

(8:03:39 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (Nah, just you two, I'm afraid.)
(8:03:48 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: (Figures.)
(8:03:55 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Trouble? There's still tension after all these years?
(8:04:22 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Mutters something to the effect of "Have you MET Shelev?" under his breath.::
(8:04:50 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Then tries to pass it off as a cough.::
(8:04:52 PM) cmdr shelev: Depends on where you go. Most of the touristy and political areas are just fine.
(8:05:08 PM) cmdr shelev: There's some nuts out in the sticks who still live two hundred years ago.
(8:05:14 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Right. ::gestures to McKnight:: My security chief, Major McKnight.
(8:05:36 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Grins ans extends his hand.:: Don't worry, ambassador. I hope not to be too busy on this trip.
(8:05:44 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Salute:: Major. Here for some high altitude training?
(8:06:00 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Something like that, sir.
(8:06:30 PM) cmdr shelev: Talk to... did he use Lou or Cheswick this time? Never mind... talk to my valet and he can get you around.
(8:06:47 PM) MajDougMcKnight: He DID mention something to that effect, yes.
(8:06:50 PM) cmdr shelev: There's really not much to do besides answer comms all day on this planet so the embassy has turned into something of a hotel.
(8:07:17 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: There are rooms available, I hope?
(8:08:15 PM) cmdr shelev: Yep, I'll get you all squared away. There's some better hotels in town but Andor still clings to using currency for local transactions so unless you brought something pawnable, we'll have to do.
(8:08:46 PM) cmdr shelev: They also have some very strange rules about it... worse than Ferengi in some regards.
(8:09:24 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Hm, strange rules you say. Hm. ::nods and gestures to Busard:: My Chief Engineer, Lt. Busard.
(8:09:52 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Handshakes:: Lieutenant.
(8:10:18 PM) Lt Percy Busard: ::Shakes:: A pleasure, sir.
(8:10:44 PM) cmdr shelev: ::O'Reilly lets forth a sharp whistle:: Talah, see if we can get some quarters squared away.
(8:10:49 PM) cmdr shelev: Anyone else joining you later?
(8:11:03 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Commander Shelev, I'm sure you've heard from.
(8:11:43 PM) cmdr shelev: Oh yeah. Him.
(8:12:31 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Yes, him. ::punctuated the same way::
(8:12:39 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::fidgets subtly in the cold::
(8:13:33 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Waits impatiently for the ambassador to elaborate, or show them inside.::
(8:13:49 PM) cmdr shelev: ((I thought we were indoors already =/ ))
(8:13:58 PM) cmdr shelev: ((incoming retcon without a clutch))
(8:14:03 PM) cmdr shelev: ::A nicer looking andorian female comes up to the group.:: My name is Talah, I'm sure you're cold; the lobby has to be this temperature for legal reasons.. let me get you situated.
(8:14:22 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: (Deft!!)
(8:14:27 PM) cmdr shelev: (( THE MAGIC OF STORYTELLING :sci101: ))
(8:14:29 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Talah, nice to meet you.
(8:15:34 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Talah leads the motley band through the typical federation embassy with its "oh shit a flag officer just landed sweep all the paper into Milton's cube he won't need it anyway" appearance::
(8:16:28 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::admires the neat appearance and doesn't look into Milton's cube as a matter of courtesy::
(8:16:37 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::walsk along the corridors, looking around the spacious rooms::
(8:17:06 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (BRB)
(8:17:13 PM) cmdr shelev: Talah> I'm sure O'Reilly told you that things aren't all that busy around here. No one really wants to have important meetings on this planet. ::sigh::
(8:17:56 PM) Lt Percy Busard: ::Looks around, still slightly worried but the hopefully subtle messing with one of her "toys" is visibly helping.::
(8:18:00 PM) LCdr TKirr: The quiet is agreeable.
(8:19:07 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::agrees, especially after their last planetfall:
(8:19:20 PM) MajDougMcKnight left the room.
(8:19:27 PM) cmdr shelev: Talah> Well you missed the construction from a few weeks ago. Hopefully they have the dust cleared out.
(8:19:27 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Indeed, but I can't see why. The planet is beautiful.
(8:20:12 PM) LCdr TKirr: (My turn, next!)
(8:20:30 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Talah leads the away team (does four people on effective shore leave count as an away team?) to the diplomatic apartments.::
(8:21:29 PM) LCdr TKirr: (I don't think it was used earlier in the strictest sense)
(8:21:45 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: (I was being facetious to Busard earlier. :v: )
(8:22:16 PM) cmdr shelev: Talah> Well here we are. ::Opens one of the apartment front doors.:: You pretty much have this whole hallway; if you didn't remember which way we came just call the front desk and we can come get you.
(8:22:31 PM) cmdr shelev: If you need anything else, just call!
(8:22:59 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Thank you, Talah.
(8:23:15 PM) LCdr TKirr: Thank you.
(8:23:24 PM) cmdr shelev: You're welcome! Not often we get a flag officer! ((laughs))
(8:23:42 PM) Lt Percy Busard: ::Smiles, nodding in thanks after they do::
(8:23:46 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::thinks Talah's laugh was a little nervous sounding::
(8:23:57 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::laughs:: Not often I'm treated so well. Thanks again.
(8:24:03 PM) cmdr shelev: ((Says the vulcan to the Andorian))
(8:24:06 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::turns to his crewmemebers:: Pick an apartment, freshen up, and meet at my door in an hour.
(8:24:12 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Smiles and heads off.::
(8:25:11 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(8:25:14 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(8:25:16 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(8:25:30 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::pauses::
(8:25:33 PM) cmdr shelev: Woot I get a week to decide if shelev is going to get the hell beat out of him off camera or wait for a bar fight
(8:25:41 PM) cmdr shelev: because you know it's coming
(8:25:46 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Or both. :v
(8:25:52 PM) cmdr shelev: I am a star trek roleplaying masochist
(8:26:00 PM) Lt Percy Busard: Lol, awesome.
(8:26:03 PM) cmdr shelev: I also do a terrible cockney accent
(8:26:10 PM) MajDougMcKnight entered the room.
(8:26:13 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (Ugh, sorry about that.)
(8:26:17 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: No it was fine, since it was mostly incomprehensibl.e.
(8:26:19 PM) LCdr TKirr: Shelev, I have to say I'm impressed with your storytelling. =)
(8:26:21 PM) Lt Percy Busard: WB
(8:26:23 PM) cmdr shelev: WELSHMEN IN SPACE
(8:26:42 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Yeah, we should let him tell the story more often.
(8:26:46 PM) cmdr shelev: Let's see, that's one two three characters I just invented off the top of my head :p
(8:26:51 PM) LCdr TKirr: It's very entertaining.
(8:26:53 PM) cmdr shelev: I think I have a psychological disorder
(8:27:01 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Heh, but an entertaining one.
(8:27:04 PM) cmdr shelev: :v:
(8:27:10 PM) Lt Percy Busard: Well, as long as it isn't MPD mixed with being a moron.
(8:27:18 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: So, Percy, ya scared yet?
(8:27:23 PM) LCdr TKirr: So did Edison, but we forgive him.
(8:27:30 PM) cmdr shelev: Edison was a moron?
(8:27:43 PM) LCdr TKirr: No, obsessive =P
(8:27:47 PM) cmdr shelev: oh
(8:27:52 PM) LCdr TKirr: Which in today's world, counts as a disorder.
(8:27:58 PM) Lt Percy Busard: Scared? I wouldn't say scared. I'd say entertained.
(8:28:07 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Then we do our jobs well. :)
(8:28:10 PM) cmdr shelev: Liking cheddar is now a psychological disorder
(8:28:20 PM) Lt Percy Busard: Really? One more to chalk up on my list, then.
(8:28:36 PM) cmdr shelev: <-- is eating a block of swiss cheese while simming
(8:28:45 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Okay then! Next sim we get to see what happened to Shelev. :haw:
(8:28:50 PM) Lt Percy Busard: Wow, that's talent.
(8:28:51 PM) LCdr TKirr: *hurls*
(8:28:53 PM) cmdr shelev: I need to get my dice
(8:29:03 PM) cmdr shelev: VULCAN PUKE COUNT: 1
(8:29:10 PM) LCdr TKirr: Omg, don't roll that
(8:29:13 PM) LCdr TKirr: I wasn't ready
(8:29:28 PM) cmdr shelev: :laffo:
(8:29:49 PM) LCdr TKirr: Help, I'm surrounded by WoW players
(8:29:56 PM) Lt Percy Busard: AHHH!!!
(8:30:05 PM) cmdr shelev: also everyone needs to install the SA IM emoticon pack so you can read the secret code that jason and I use
(8:30:14 PM) LCdr TKirr: !
(8:30:21 PM) cmdr shelev: :ghost: :ghost: :ghost: :v: :j: :bandwagon:
(8:30:30 PM) LCdr TKirr: Ahh... link meh.
(8:30:31 PM) cmdr shelev: [img-timeline]
(8:30:34 PM) cmdr shelev: crap
(8:30:35 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Just don't be offended at some of the gross stuff in there if you do! :haw: :v: :q: :derp: :sax:
(8:30:37 PM) LCdr TKirr: Stoppit, can't read it
(8:31:00 PM) cmdr shelev: may your wish be granted http://sa.tweek.us/emots/
(8:31:03 PM) cmdr shelev: :hydrogen:
(8:31:11 PM) LCdr TKirr: Oh joy... I mean, thanks.
(8:31:34 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Okay then, That's all for now, see y'all next week!
(8:31:35 PM) Lt Percy Busard: Oh, wow. Those are awesome.
(8:31:39 PM) Lt Percy Busard: Later!
(8:31:40 PM) cmdr shelev: ta-ta
(8:31:43 PM) cmdr shelev left the room.
(8:31:45 PM) LCdr TKirr: Hehe, later
(8:32:06 PM) LCdr TKirr: Btw.. we have 3 chicks and 3 guys now
(8:32:31 PM) Lt Percy Busard: Which means battle of the sexes?
(8:32:33 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: The most balanced sim I've ever been on.
(8:32:40 PM) Lt Percy Busard: Oh, right. That too.
(8:34:20 PM) LCdr TKirr: Wow, and I thought smileys were incapable of humping
(8:34:29 PM) LCdr TKirr: What an educational site
(8:34:38 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: :v:
(8:36:42 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Well, I'm gonna pack in in. Night, folks.
(8:36:50 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Er...it in.
(8:36:56 PM) MajDougMcKnight left the room.
(8:37:01 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: G'night!
