(7:02:45 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Hello!
(7:03:04 PM) AngelicaKeeva: Hi
(7:03:10 PM) LCdr TKirr: Hey
(7:03:20 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Who might Angelica be?
(7:03:26 PM) cmdr shelev entered the room.
(7:04:50 PM) ponytailfalls entered the room.
(7:05:05 PM) ponytailfalls: might I ask who you people are?
(7:05:29 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: We're a Star Trek RPG, the USS Atlantis.
(7:05:56 PM) cmdr shelev: yes we are star trek nerds which means we usually smell bad. best be off
(7:07:17 PM) ponytailfalls: well I hate to say this but this room was made by my friend why would I leave a room that was made by my friend for his Star Trek sim
(7:07:45 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: That's nice. We've been meeting here for years, at the same time, every week.
(7:08:09 PM) cmdr shelev: allow me to direct you to our web site,
(7:08:45 PM) ponytailfalls left the room.
(7:09:05 PM) LCdr TKirr: No need to be rude, Shelev. *scold*
(7:09:23 PM) LCdr TKirr: Just because they don't know any better.
(7:09:45 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: I'd call it a confirmed kill.
(7:09:47 PM) LCdr TKirr: I do wonder who Angelica is, though.
(7:10:03 PM) cmdr shelev: POINTS ON THE BOARD
(7:10:34 PM) AngelicaKeeva: Pony and I are part of another USS Atlantis sim that takes place on another night and time. We use a room with the same exact name, and had been using this room earlier for a meeting
(7:10:50 PM) MajDougMcKnight entered the room.
(7:11:12 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Ah, well then. Thanks for putting it a bit more coherently.
(7:11:12 PM) LCdr TKirr: Well no problems sharing it, then, just not now. =P
(7:11:23 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Anyway, we use the room on Tuesdays from 10 ET onward.
(7:11:51 PM) AngelicaKeeva left the room.
(7:12:09 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Hey. Sorry, my schedule's been moved around. My internal clock's so confused, I almost forgot it was an Atlantis night.
(7:12:14 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: No worries.
(7:12:18 PM) LCdr TKirr: She was in here before me
(7:12:19 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Just missing one now.
(7:12:34 PM) LCdr TKirr: So the room was open when I entered, she probably wondered who the heck I was
(7:12:35 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Also, if I'm quiet, it's because my body feels I should be asleep.
(7:12:39 PM) cmdr shelev: I wonder what would make them name this room ussatlantis :iiam:
(7:13:07 PM) LCdr TKirr: Did you guys sim last week?
(7:13:14 PM) cmdr shelev: but did an admirable job of clearing out the room
(7:13:36 PM) MajDougMcKnight: We did.
(7:14:03 PM) LCdr TKirr: I wished I had been here instead... my husband had a horrible birthday and we basically drove around for two hours
(7:14:24 PM) MajDougMcKnight: That sucks.
(7:14:29 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Ugh!
(7:14:46 PM) LCdr TKirr: So yeah, missed it for nothin' =/
(7:15:16 PM) LCdr TKirr: Got a 50hr week this week... bleh
(7:15:27 PM) LCdr TKirr: But anyway! We waiting for someone?
(7:15:45 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Well, was hoping that Busard would show up.
(7:16:39 PM) LCdr TKirr: Btw McKnight hope I didn't scare you on the phone =P
(7:17:14 PM) LCdr TKirr: I tried to call Blackthorne but nooo he wouldn't answer
(7:17:46 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: My phone didn't ring.
(7:17:51 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Heh, no it was fine. Like I said, I'd just forgotten that anyone in this group other than Jason had that number.
(7:17:58 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Caught me off guard for a second.
(7:18:40 PM) LCdr TKirr: It's the 0501 one that I have for you...
(7:18:57 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Noooo, that's old
(7:19:03 PM) LCdr TKirr: Well then!
(7:19:04 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: 408.544.0129
(7:19:31 PM) LCdr TKirr: Thanks.
(7:20:12 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Ah! Busard answered the IM!
(7:20:33 PM) cmdr shelev: get in the space bar
(7:21:12 PM) DrunknGunbunny entered the room.
(7:21:25 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: There we go
(7:21:44 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Ugh, sorry. By "Atlantis", I thought Mike meant Stargate.
(7:21:47 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Alright then, let's get started.
(7:23:11 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Tonight, our shuttle has returned from Andor to the Atlantis.
(7:23:21 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: We cleared customs and didn't get boarded on the way up. :v:
(7:23:29 PM) DrunknGunbunny: *GASP*
(7:23:47 PM) LCdr TKirr: Home sweet home...
(7:23:56 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: So, we just got home. Make yourselves at home. :)
(7:23:58 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(7:23:59 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(7:24:00 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(7:24:38 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Shelev has forgotten what "home" is :smith: ::
(7:24:41 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::duffel bag over his shoulder, and carrying the DUTY FREE box given to him by O'Reilly, he heads out of the shuttle::
(7:25:58 PM) DrunknGunbunny: ::Percy somewhat timidly sneaks out of the shuttle, not entirely sure where she should be going yet.::
(7:26:06 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::exits the shuttle, toting her lightweight duffel, and heads for the door::
(7:26:22 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Busard, I believe your quarters are on deck eight.
(7:26:31 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: And I'm sure you can find engineering. ::smiles::
(7:26:49 PM) cmdr shelev: Just follow the smell of the burning remains of our last two chief engineers.
(7:27:02 PM) cmdr shelev: and see if you can fix it so it doesn't smell like that anymore :(
(7:27:13 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::glares over her shoulder at Shelev before rounding the corner of the corridor::
(7:27:18 PM) DrunknGunbunny: ::Smiles widely:: Yes, sir. ::She then looked somewhat strangely at Shelev, really hoping that was a joke:: Er...yes, sir. ::And she's off!::
(7:27:33 PM) LCdr TKirr: ((busard took my color!))
(7:27:33 PM) cmdr shelev: ((insert spinal tap drummer joke here))
(7:27:53 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Hands his box o' guns to some random marine stationed there with instructions to return it to the armory:: I think you missed your calling as a motivational speaker, sir.
(7:28:17 PM) DrunknGunbunny: (I did? Oops)
(7:28:22 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::heads out into the corridor to the TL::
(7:29:00 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::hits the lift and flies to deck 8::
(7:29:21 PM) LCdr TKirr: ((Not your fault my AIM keeps resetting it to black =/ ))
(7:29:42 PM) DrunknGunbunny: ::Presumably, is in the lift with her, as she's heading towards her quarters::
(7:30:11 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::directs the TL to deck 6:
(7:30:53 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::gets out and heads to his quarters::
(7:30:54 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::arrives at requested deck and exits, thinking about the quiet of her quarters::
(7:31:55 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Goes to the turbolift. Attempts to remember where his quarters are. Fails.::
(7:32:04 PM) cmdr shelev: Computer, where do I live?
(7:32:09 PM) DrunknGunbunny: ::Curiously heads to her own quarters. Would there be any remnants from the previous occupant's lifestyle? Or char all over the place? But...nope, just very clean. Oh well, we can fix THAT.::
(7:32:14 PM) cmdr shelev: Computer> Deck Six, forward.
(7:32:16 PM) cmdr shelev: Go.
(7:32:19 PM) cmdr shelev: Computer> what
(7:32:24 PM) cmdr shelev: ::TL goes.::
(7:32:46 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::gets in his quarters, puts his stuff down, and just falls on the bed for a minute::
(7:33:24 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::arrives at her door and enters without hesitation, welcoming the dark, warm interior::
(7:34:15 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::then gets up, pries open the DUTY FREE box, and is pleasantly surprised::
(7:34:26 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::unpacks and neatly stows everything away, then pads to the washroom::
(7:34:34 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::At length arriving in his own quarters, he takes a quick look around before collapsing in his big chair, and petting Hobbes upon seeing that he has not in fact gorged himself on the extra full bowl of food he left and vomited all
(7:34:39 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Andorian Brandy, a fine age...
(7:34:49 PM) MajDougMcKnight: over his master's quarters. That's about as "good" as a cat gets.::
(7:34:56 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: God bless that Irishman.
(7:35:25 PM) LCdr TKirr: ((Careful that stuff'll turn yer blood blue))
(7:36:09 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ((All the better!)
(7:36:29 PM) cmdr shelev: ((that just means it is strong))
(7:36:29 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::puts all but one bottle into his personal liquor cabinet::
(7:36:34 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::takes her time freshening up::
(7:37:08 PM) DrunknGunbunny: ::Immediately she began to unpack, putting clothes and the like away before finally dumping the rest onto her cot. Out rained several little droid-like inventions, all for the moment de-activated. And now, to the engine room.::
(7:37:40 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::wraps that bottle up in a discreet "the Admiral is not a lush" bag and tucks it under his arm::
(7:39:18 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::heads out to the TL:: Bridge.
(7:39:29 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Shelev finds his quarters after being led around by the computer for ten minutes. He puts his bag at the foot of his bed, kills the lights, and looks to see how much paperwork a ship without an XO can produce.::
(7:40:05 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (No, he's a lush AND a booze hog.)
(7:40:25 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ((I always offer you a drink when you're in the RR.))
(7:40:41 PM) LCdr TKirr: ((On duty? *gasp*))
(7:40:48 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ((THE DEVIL YOU SAY))
(7:40:53 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (Fine, fine. But I'm totally going to start coming up with more excuses to drop by.)
(7:41:11 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::arrives on the bridge:: Helm, prepare for departure.
(7:41:20 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::enters the RR without waiting for a reply::
(7:41:23 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::exits the washroom all freshy and sits down on her cot with a book::
(7:41:40 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Shelev made the mistake of looking at paperwork. Now he is asleep with his face on the desk.::
(7:42:29 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::turns the page of "Arid Climates and You"::
(7:43:21 PM) DrunknGunbunny: ::Bwahaha. Once she actually got to the engine room, and saw people at work, her brain had a joygasm. Alas, she could not express this as it would seem silly. So instead, she got to work on seeing about
(7:43:36 PM) DrunknGunbunny: that past-engineer smell::
(7:44:11 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::unwraps the single bottle of brandy and puts it on the liquorshelf::
(7:44:32 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (Tradition AKA Ruder suggests the path to success in engineering is to have NPCs gush about how brilliant you are.)
(7:45:17 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ((Oh snap!))
(7:45:20 PM) DrunknGunbunny: <Random NPC> Golly, that Lt. Busard sure is great! Gee whiz!
(7:45:28 PM) DrunknGunbunny: (Damn, damn. -nix-)
(7:46:08 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (Yeah. I went there.)
(7:46:43 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods in satisfaction, heads out to the bridge::
(7:46:49 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> Welcome back, Admiral.
(7:46:52 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Thank you Commander.
(7:47:00 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: I trust all is still in order?
(7:47:07 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> Aye sir, she's ship shape.
(7:47:59 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Replicates 2 gas station quality beef and bean burritos and a beer, the cornerstone of any nutritious meal and chow down before he grabs a few hours sleep in preparation for his duty shift.::
(7:48:53 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Set a course for Starbase 25, warp five.
(7:48:56 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Execute.
(7:49:10 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::Atlantis jumps to warp and gets the hell out of the Andor system::
(7:49:40 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::feels the ship go to warp::
(7:50:00 PM) DrunknGunbunny: ::Restrains herself from giggling cheerily when she hears and feels the engines change to warp speed::
(7:50:13 PM) cmdr shelev: ::zzzzzzz::
(7:51:18 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Steady as she goes, Commander. ::steps into the TL::
(7:51:22 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::smiles:: Aye sir.
(7:51:30 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Hears his cat meow as the ship goes to warp.:: Oh, shut the fuck UP.
(7:51:48 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: +T
(7:51:59 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: +T'Kirr+ Blackthorne to T'Kirr.
(7:52:13 PM) cmdr shelev: ((why are you mean to kitty >:( ))
(7:52:39 PM) DrunknGunbunny: (Kitty: You're a bastard! Gimme foooooooooood!! And pettins!!)
(7:52:40 PM) LCdr TKirr: +Blackthorne+ T'Kirr.
(7:53:00 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: +T'Kirr+ Do you have a moment, Commander?
(7:53:19 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::jumps out of bed:: +Blackthorne+ Of course. Your ready room?
(7:55:03 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (Kitties meow for no reason constantly. Because they're evil.)
(7:55:05 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: +T'Kirr+ I actually just left there. ::standing in the goddamn TL sitting at the bridge:: Are you in your quarters, and if so may I stop by?
(7:55:20 PM) DrunknGunbunny: (Adorably evil)
(7:55:26 PM) LCdr TKirr: +Blackthorne+ Of course.
(7:56:10 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::sets her book on her desk, bare but for the computer terminal::
(7:56:18 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Deck eight.
(7:57:15 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::looks for somethiing to tidy up, but finds nothing::
(7:58:46 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::goes to her door and rings the chime::
(7:58:57 PM) LCdr TKirr: Enter.
(7:59:11 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::steps just inside:: Evening, Commander.
(7:59:18 PM) LCdr TKirr: Good evening.
(7:59:42 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::watches Blackthorne expectantly, hands clasped behind her::
(7:59:56 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: T'Kirr, I'd like to thank you. I do realize the absurdity of what we had to do on Andor.
(8:00:14 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: But, I feel like I asked the most of you, to stay behind.
(8:00:30 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::arches an eyebrow and looks at the floor:: It was nothing. It had to be done.
(8:01:02 PM) cmdr shelev: (( yay the jerry springer sim :dance: ))
(8:01:07 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Indeed. Sometimes you need a top-notch Vulcan scientist, and sometimes you need a backhoe. Those times rarely intersect.
(8:01:36 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::merely stares at Blackthorne::
(8:02:26 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Given the choice, I much prefer the scientist. ::smiles::
(8:02:45 PM) LCdr TKirr: I don't doubt it.
(8:03:01 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Thank you again, for putting up with that.
(8:03:09 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::nods subtly::
(8:03:24 PM) DrunknGunbunny left the room.
(8:05:06 PM) DrunknGunbunny entered the room.
(8:06:01 PM) LCdr TKirr: ((WB))
(8:06:13 PM) DrunknGunbunny: (TY)
(8:07:55 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::looks around her room briefly in the silence, then peers back at Blackthorne:: Was.. there anything else?
(8:08:14 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: After we got back, I had O'Reilly run a little errand for me as a thank you. ::takes out a sealed foil pouch with Vulcan lettering from his jacket::
(8:08:33 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: He'd know where to get such a thing far better on Andor than I would, you see.
(8:08:50 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: But it would seem that there are Andorians who fancy genuine, non-replicated Vulcan tea.
(8:08:58 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::eyebrows go up as she looks at it::
(8:09:08 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::offers the pouch to her:: For going above and beyond, yet again.
(8:09:12 PM) LCdr TKirr: That is.. surprising.
(8:09:40 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::holds out her hand to take it, voice sounding appreciative:: Thank you.
(8:10:15 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::hands it to her with a smile:: Enjoy.
(8:10:44 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::turns for the door:: Good night, Commander.
(8:10:54 PM) LCdr TKirr: Good night. ::watches after him::
(8:10:56 PM) DrunknGunbunny: +And just to stay active...Percy was practically running around the engine room until coming to a monitor that disappointed her:: Well, that's not right. ::Tap tap type tap tap::
(8:11:14 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::exits her quarters, and enters the TL down the corridor:: Deck six.
(8:11:53 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::rides the TL and gets out, heads into his quarters. Can hear Shelev snoring out in the hallway::
(8:12:10 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Am I even on the same deck as you?::
(8:12:26 PM) LCdr TKirr: ((Why he's on deck 6 I have no idea...))
(8:13:30 PM) cmdr shelev: ((oh =x
(8:13:45 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ((I believe we're on deck 4, actually. Curse you for making me look it up.))
(8:13:56 PM) cmdr shelev: ((DAMN I snore loud.))\
(8:14:04 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::peers closely at the packet and puts it on her desk::
(8:14:08 PM) LCdr TKirr: ((LOL))
(8:14:12 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ((Deck 4 has VIP quarters, deck eight is senior officers))
(8:14:25 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ((Either way the CO and XO are on the same deck, and you snore loudly.))
(8:14:36 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::enters his quarters and prepares for bed::
(8:15:57 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::in his robe, he opens the brandy and pours a small small bit into a snifter::
(8:16:13 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::swirls it around and takes a sip:: ....Exquisite.
(8:16:23 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::turns and stops, then looks back at the packet. Vulcan tea would be perfect right then::
(8:16:29 PM) cmdr shelev: ((FETCH THE ADMIRAL'S PIPE))
(8:16:42 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ((I SMOKE CIGARS YOU UNCIVILIZED FOOL))(
(8:17:05 PM) DrunknGunbunny: ::Tap tap type:: Ha! See? Shield power distribution efficiency is increased by five percent. MUCH better. ::Triumphant grin::
(8:17:07 PM) cmdr shelev: ((Pipes are more sophisticated than cigars. :colbert:))
(8:17:21 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::finishes the brandy, doffs his robe and shirt, then gets to bed::
(8:17:48 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::falls quickly to sleep, the hum of the ship soothing after the quiet of the embassy::
(8:18:00 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::replicates hot water and stirs in some tea::
(8:20:08 PM) Unable to send message: The message is too large.
(8:20:47 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> A dark-clad figure shimmers into both Blackthorne's and Shelev's quarters, and shoots them with something.
(8:20:47 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::sits down, takes a sip, and closes her eyes::
(8:21:03 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> A moment later, the figures disappear along with the CO and XO.
(8:21:18 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Shelev did not need to be tranqed. ::
(8:21:32 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ((It was a transporter tag)
(8:21:41 PM) cmdr shelev: (( :( ))
(8:22:03 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::wakes up, finding himself in a jail cell:: WHAT.
(8:22:18 PM) cmdr shelev: ::wakes up finding himself in the other jail cell.::
(8:22:18 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: SHELEV, WAKE THE FUCK UP.
(8:22:25 PM) cmdr shelev: ...
(8:22:37 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ( there any reason sensors wouldn't have picked all that up?)
(8:22:37 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::enjoys her tea::
(8:22:40 PM) cmdr shelev: We're on ship dammit, no reason to lock me up again.
(8:22:42 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ((They would have.))
(8:22:50 PM) cmdr shelev: (( Plz don't shoot :( ))
(8:23:05 PM) cmdr shelev: Wait, why are you locked up?
(8:23:10 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ((It would have registered as an unauthorized transport, most likely.))
(8:23:31 PM) LCdr TKirr: ((Okay um))
(8:23:39 PM) cmdr shelev: ACTION> Another flashing light appears on the security console.
(8:23:52 PM) cmdr shelev: ((who is driving))
(8:23:57 PM) cmdr shelev: ((vulcan is driving))
(8:24:02 PM) cmdr shelev: ((how can this be))
(8:24:04 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> A Machen Bren walks into the brig holding the two.
(8:24:10 PM) LCdr TKirr: Logan> ::on the bridge, at Science, frowning at the bleeping light::
(8:24:18 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::In that case, McKnight was no doubt roused from bed as internal sensors registered an intruder alert. Presumably, sensors were at work trying to track that transporter signal.::
(8:24:40 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Machen Bren> Vice Admiral Ian Blackthorne, Commander Tharr Shelev, you are hereby under arrest by order of the Machen Bren Star Empire.
(8:24:43 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (Er...but I leave that second one to Mr. Logan.)
(8:24:46 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Shelev looks behind because he SWORE the machen bren were IN the brig, thus advertising that there was a door behind him. There is not.::
(8:24:57 PM) MajDougMcKnight: (Ahem. Star KINGDOM.)
(8:25:05 PM) cmdr shelev: I object!
(8:25:06 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ((Sorry, sorry, Star Kingdom!))
(8:25:15 PM) cmdr shelev: (( :history: ))
(8:25:16 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: What's the bloody charge?
(8:25:54 PM) cmdr shelev: Where's our lawyer?
(8:25:56 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: The Machen Bren Star Kingdom charges you with war crimes, most specifically, the genocide of a civilian world by destruction of its atmosphere.
(8:26:07 PM) cmdr shelev: LAWYER.
(8:26:25 PM) LCdr TKirr: Logan> Captain, unauthorized transport. The Admiral and Commander Shelev appear to be.... gone.
(8:26:30 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Seeing no response.:: SOLICITOR?
(8:26:42 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: You will have representation when we arrive at our home world, where you will stand trial.
(8:26:52 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ((That's all the MB, not me. :v: ))
(8:27:09 PM) cmdr shelev: No, no, no, no, no. We want a starfleet lawyer.
(8:27:24 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: MB guy> What you want is irrelevant!
(8:27:44 PM) cmdr shelev: What I want is bail!
(8:27:49 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: You've committed an act of war, do you realize that?
(8:28:08 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: MB guy> ::simply turns on his heel and exits::
(8:28:26 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Plops down and fumes while he lets the Admiral take over the cood cop part of this reverse good cop bad cop routine.::
(8:28:42 PM) LCdr TKirr: Harper> Red alert!
(8:29:00 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ((yes, right then I forget about Harper, I was busy making the shit hit the fan. :v: )
(8:29:13 PM) cmdr shelev: Dollars to donuts this room's bugged.
(8:29:13 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Walking out off the turbolift onto the bridge looking none too please, McKnight turns to Logan.:: Do we have a trace yet? They can't have been taken far.
(8:29:15 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::is shaken out of her serenity by the klaxons and runs out the door, heading for the bridge::
(8:29:18 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Of course it is.
(8:29:20 PM) LCdr TKirr: ((Yah I figured, why I took the liberty))
(8:29:26 PM) cmdr shelev: Spechen deutsche?
(8:30:07 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Ja, ich sprechen zie deutsche. Bet you don't though.
(8:30:08 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Eh? ::Looks up at the sound of the red alert sirens:: Well, shit. ::And, to her stations she goes, awaiting status reports and all that::
(8:30:14 PM) LCdr TKirr: Logan> ::frustrated look on his face, shaking his head:: I can't seem to find ANYTHING. They're just... gone!
(8:30:31 PM) LCdr TKirr: Logan> ::after a glance at McKnight:: I'll try to find something, sir.
(8:30:45 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::hurries to the lift:: Bridge!
(8:30:48 PM) cmdr shelev: Drat.
(8:30:57 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> The transport signature.
(8:31:47 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Sorry for this, Commander.
(8:31:55 PM) LCdr TKirr: Logan> Right.... ::checks:: Err... it's... ::surprised:: Machen Bren!
(8:31:59 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::looks at him, then bulldozes his way into Shelev's mind::
(8:32:12 PM) cmdr shelev: Could be worse.
(8:32:19 PM) cmdr shelev: <<Civilian my ass.>>
(8:32:32 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::finds Shelev's mind to be much like a surrealist painting of a circus::
(8:32:49 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ((Tharr, what the hell did you do.))
(8:32:57 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Er, {{}} for the mind stuff
(8:33:24 PM) cmdr shelev: {{I done shot maself between the legs it looks like. ::Calliope music plays.:: }}
(8:33:24 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::enters the Bridge and beelines for Science, relieving Logan::
(8:33:30 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::While Logan's busy with that, McKnight probes the surrounding area with tactical scanners.:: If it's the Machen Bren, they're probably using a stealth ship. We need to scan for recent warp activity other than our own.
(8:33:43 PM) MajDougMcKnight: It's not much, but it'll give us a place to start.
(8:33:53 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::sees enough alpha shift officers here and turns to T'Kirr:: The bridge is yours, Commander.
(8:34:11 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: {{There were no civilians on that planet, right?}}
(8:34:15 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::nods, busy with scans::
(8:34:35 PM) LCdr TKirr: ((None that I knew of...))
(8:34:46 PM) cmdr shelev: {{That planet was dead but for the friggin military base we bailed you out of. They were mining it out. ::Marching band drum roll.:: }}
(8:34:47 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ((That was mental to Shelev))
(8:35:12 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: {{Does Atlantis have logs that say that?}}
(8:35:18 PM) LCdr TKirr: ((Oh sorry =D I thought that was ~ ~))
(8:35:43 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Atlantis gets a hail from Starfleet Command.
(8:36:04 PM) cmdr shelev: {{Yep. You were down there for three days, enough time to sensor sweep the whole surface. How are we going to get them? ::Brass section.::}}
(8:36:26 PM) LCdr TKirr: Receiving a hail... from Starfleet Command. Onscreen.
(8:36:45 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Admiral Zuriyev> Atlantis, what the hell is going on out there?
(8:37:55 PM) Unable to send message: The message is too large.
(8:38:14 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: {{We sit tight until Starfleet figures this out.}}
(8:38:20 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Wonders how on Earth Zuriyev knows anything's happened.::
(8:38:29 PM) LCdr TKirr: Admiral Blackthorne and Commander Shelev appear to have been transported somewhere nearby using a Machen Bren signature. We're attempting to locate its source now.
(8:39:01 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::wonders if someone contacted Starfleet before she got to the Bridge::
(8:39:07 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Zuriyev> Da, the Machen Bren just contacted us, declaring Blackthorne and Shelev intergalactic fugitives, and announcing their capture.
(8:39:11 PM) cmdr shelev: {{ ::tada.wav:: There's sensor logs of there being nothing but military operations. There are no logs of us baking the atmo. }}
(8:39:20 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::eyebrows shoot up::
(8:39:39 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: {{Sit tight my ass. We're not getting a fair trial.}}
(8:39:41 PM) LCdr TKirr: With what reason?
(8:40:02 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Zuriyev> They cite the destruction of the atmosphere of a heavily populated civilian world.
(8:40:06 PM) LCdr TKirr: Logan> ::works at a Science console behind T'Kirr::
(8:40:07 PM) cmdr shelev: {{The devil you say. ::Tuba solo.:: }}
(8:40:26 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::stares off for a moment, remembering::
(8:40:33 PM) DrunknGunbunny: ::Boop boop beep boop::
(8:40:40 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Zuriyev> Transmit all of your logs, including their personal logs, from that mission to me, NOW. Sit tight in the meantime and don't try anything. Zuriyev out.
(8:41:31 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::rustles up the logs and transmits them::
(8:42:00 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::looks over to McKnight:: Anything, Major?
(8:42:04 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: {{So, we need a way to get out of here and commandeer this ship.}
(8:42:17 PM) cmdr shelev: ::whistles aimlessly:: At some point you might want to ask for a prison jumpsuit; your PJs are going to get a mite unconfortable in a while.
(8:43:51 PM) cmdr shelev: {{Mechanical lock you think? ::mining sounds.::}}
(8:44:04 PM) MajDougMcKnight: ::Frowns:: Nothing to get excited about. Remember, we had a fleet-wide scanning grid last time we tried this. We know more about the technology used now, but...I'll let you know as soon as I have something.
(8:44:27 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: They're good enough to sleep in, at least.
(8:44:49 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::nods and continues at her station, working to find a lead::
(8:45:01 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: {{Must be. I'm surprised it's not an energy barrier, honestly.}}
(8:45:40 PM) cmdr shelev: {{They don't seem to have much in the way of powered anything. ::an image of a tesla coil appears with associated zapping noises.::}}
(8:45:42 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::thinks briefly about her quiet quarters and waiting bed, then scolds herself for allowing her mind to wander even for a second::
(8:46:21 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: {{How the hell did they get warp technology then, much less a cloaking ship?}}
(8:46:31 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(8:46:32 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(8:46:35 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(8:46:38 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::pauses::
(8:46:45 PM) MajDougMcKnight: Totally paused.
(8:46:51 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Well, there we go, when all we want to do is get to bed, look what happens.
(8:46:59 PM) cmdr shelev: THAT WAS NOT MY FAULT
(8:47:05 PM) cmdr shelev: wait
(8:47:11 PM) cmdr shelev: THAT WAS NOT DIRECTLY MY FAULT
(8:47:24 PM) DrunknGunbunny: :-P
(8:47:53 PM) LCdr TKirr: This is a test... isn't it. I'm being tested. =P
(8:48:02 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Looks like we have interesting times ahead!
(8:48:57 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Yes indeedy.
(8:49:06 PM) cmdr shelev: No this is paying you back for letting me hijack the plot for two months
(8:49:13 PM) cmdr shelev: now t'kirr drive internet starship
(8:49:22 PM) LCdr TKirr: Yay!
(8:49:39 PM) cmdr shelev: and you have percy downstairs to make vroom vroom noises to boot
(8:49:48 PM) LCdr TKirr: Yay hray!
(8:49:52 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Yay! Vroom vroom!
(8:49:59 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: She'd better hold my ship together. Water's getting rough up ahead.
(8:50:02 PM) cmdr shelev: wait can you drive a stick
(8:50:14 PM) LCdr TKirr: I already have her first order in mind
(8:50:33 PM) cmdr shelev: TEMPERANCE
(8:50:34 PM) LCdr TKirr: 'Course she can, remember what she did with that backhoe
(8:50:42 PM) cmdr shelev: THIS IS NOW A DRY SPACESHIP
(8:50:52 PM) DrunknGunbunny: :-D
(8:51:18 PM) cmdr shelev: ok I have to reboot
(8:51:24 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: That's all for this week.
(8:51:27 PM) cmdr shelev: be back next week or on aim all the time because I have no life
(8:51:31 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: See y'all next time!
(8:51:34 PM) cmdr shelev: ta t
(8:51:34 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Later!
(8:51:36 PM) cmdr shelev left the room.
(8:51:46 PM) LCdr TKirr: I was describing Busard's character to my husband... and he asks, "Is her character modeled after..." I'm like, yep.
(8:52:12 PM) LCdr TKirr: Hey, what are you saying about us? o.O
(8:52:41 PM) LCdr TKirr: That we all have no life?
(8:52:43 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Hey, I like having a Kaylee, they're awesome engineers. :)
(8:52:45 PM) LCdr TKirr: Oh yeah, I'm talking to air.
(8:53:26 PM) DrunknGunbunny: I have no life. And am very proud of it. Yay being a geek!
(8:53:53 PM) LCdr TKirr: Yay, I'm a geek lifeguard
(8:55:31 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: No, Shelev really has no life at all.
(8:55:49 PM) LCdr TKirr: MMO brain rotters
(8:55:59 PM) LCdr TKirr: We're hopeless
(8:56:00 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Mmmmhmmm
(8:56:15 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Hey T'Kirr, my friends in NY let me play EQ2 with them while I was there.
(8:56:27 PM) LCdr TKirr: And?
(8:56:34 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: I helped heal Unrest on one of their druids
(8:56:41 PM) LCdr TKirr: Wow not bad
(8:56:45 PM) LCdr TKirr: What server
(8:57:03 PM) LCdr TKirr: Druid's what I play heh
(8:57:18 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Kithincor or something like that?
(8:57:47 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Well, I've been a healer for a long time in WoW, so it wasn't hard to change MMOs once they explained the different spells.
(8:57:49 PM) LCdr TKirr: Kithicor, okay... not associated.
(8:58:01 PM) LCdr TKirr: Yeah I'm sure, healers rock
(8:58:17 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: having a group HoT was awesome though.
(9:01:10 PM) DrunknGunbunny: I think MMOs have claimed a vendetta against my computer. *shakes fist*
(9:01:18 PM) MajDougMcKnight left the room.
(9:01:26 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: You play?
(9:01:54 PM) LCdr TKirr: hehe, McKnight's done =P
(9:01:54 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Used to. Never WoW or EQ, because I never was that much into it. I played Guild Wars for a while, but it was sketchy and slow.
(9:02:18 PM) DrunknGunbunny: And then I was in the beta for LotRO, and it was like a friggin' slideshow.
(9:02:44 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Ahhh, I see what you meant.
(9:02:50 PM) LCdr TKirr: I did beta too, was beautiful
(9:03:37 PM) DrunknGunbunny: It was! But apparently my computer can't handle it, despite 2.4 GHz of processor speed and decent broadband internet.
(9:07:23 PM) LCdr TKirr: What vid card
(9:08:39 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Um...not entirely sure. I can check.
(9:09:06 PM) LCdr TKirr: How much RAM?
(9:09:45 PM) DrunknGunbunny: 265 MB of RAM
(9:09:58 PM) LCdr TKirr: That's your problem right there
(9:10:10 PM) LCdr TKirr: MMOs require a lot
(9:10:18 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Ah, you know, you may have a point.
(9:10:24 PM) DrunknGunbunny: And now, to get more RAM.
(9:10:40 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Oh god that's a problem.
(9:10:43 PM) LCdr TKirr: 1-2GB is what you want
(9:10:45 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Because goddamnit, I'm a Tolkienite, and I want my freaking LotR MMO.
(9:10:56 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Yeah...*sigh*
(9:11:14 PM) LCdr TKirr: Did you buy the $199 lifetime membership?
(9:11:41 PM) LCdr TKirr: Prolly not since you had trouble running it =/
(9:12:05 PM) DrunknGunbunny: No, not yet. I kind of gave up after it was freaking out on me. Haven't bought the game itself yet, which is probably a poor choice but I did.
(9:12:18 PM) LCdr TKirr: Can't get it anymore, was a pre-order special =/
(9:12:33 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Ah, damn.
(9:12:42 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Oh well, missed my chance.
(9:12:49 PM) LCdr TKirr: Can still pay the monthly =P
(9:13:01 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Which should be fine. :-P
(9:13:37 PM) LCdr TKirr: Yep yep. Also wanna make sure your video card is good enough, don't wanna get RAM and still have a bottleneck
(9:14:46 PM) DrunknGunbunny: *Nod* Thanks a lot. I'll have a better computer in a couple months with any luck anyway, so hopefully I'll be on in not TOO long.
(9:15:20 PM) LCdr TKirr: Sweet =P It's already launched, so hopefully some bugs will be worked out before you get it.
(9:15:32 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Awesome.
(9:15:44 PM) DrunknGunbunny: I heard it has Tom Bombadil in it. Is this true?
(9:16:20 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: It has eight million elves all named LeGoLaZZZZ
(9:17:08 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Ah, wonderful. Eight million dumbasses for me to mock.
(9:17:26 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Truly, my life's dream shall be realized.
(9:17:39 PM) LCdr TKirr: Lol so true
(9:18:10 PM) LCdr TKirr: And I dunno about Tom
(9:18:56 PM) LCdr TKirr: My character was named Jaywing, didn't run into her did ya? =P
(9:19:31 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Never had a chance. Not kidding, I never had the chance to meet anyone but the premades in the introductions, it was THAT slow.
(9:19:44 PM) LCdr TKirr: Yeah I can imagine with that RAM =/
(9:19:57 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Bloody stupid RAM.
(9:20:42 PM) DrunknGunbunny: *stabs it*
(9:21:21 PM) DrunknGunbunny: A bit counter-productive, maybe, but it gets the tension out :-P
(9:21:27 PM) LCdr TKirr: lol
(9:21:45 PM) LCdr TKirr: And you'll notice.. my stupid AIM changed my text to black again way back when. *sigh*
(9:21:58 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Fie on thee, AIM!
(9:22:11 PM) LCdr TKirr: Oh crap I gotta get to bed >_<
(9:22:21 PM) LCdr TKirr: Gotta get up and stare at water for 10hrs
(9:22:27 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Heh, 'Night then.
(9:22:34 PM) LCdr TKirr: See you next week.
(9:22:47 PM) DrunknGunbunny: Indeed.
(9:22:59 PM) LCdr TKirr left the room.
(9:23:04 PM) DrunknGunbunny left the room.
