6:59:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Nice bit of writing there!

6:59:53 PM ltpercybusard: Thanks. :-) You too.

6:59:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Thanks :)

7:00:03 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Two logs in a week, remarkable!

7:00:19 PM ltpercybusard: Totally! Guess that just means last session kicked ass.

7:00:30 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Absolutely.

7:01:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hay folks.

7:01:45 PM ltpercybusard: Hoy thar, mateys!

7:02:20 PM lcdrtkirr: Heya, who saw Stardust

7:02:32 PM majdougmcknight: Ah, no.  I've been meaning to.  Any good?

7:02:36 PM lcdrtkirr: Yeah it is

7:03:08 PM majdougmcknight: I hope it does well on DVD or something.  The guy who directed it has since been singled out to direct the movie adaptation of Thor.

7:03:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ah, we're all here.

7:03:24 PM majdougmcknight: And if he doesn't have any clout, we may be stuck with Triple H.

7:04:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Okay then.

7:04:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: McKnight and Percy, make a google group page for your log. :)

7:04:39 PM lcdrtkirr: Yah

7:04:42 PM majdougmcknight: Make me.

7:04:46 PM majdougmcknight: Or conversely, tell me how.

7:05:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: go to Pages, click add new page.

7:05:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Please follow the same page title format so that they're easier to sort.

7:05:55 PM majdougmcknight: Alright, I'll get to that a bit later.

7:06:06 PM ltpercybusard: Not if I get to it first!

7:06:08 PM ltpercybusard: Bwahaha!

7:06:12 PM ltpercybusard: Oh wait, I'm lazy. Nevermind.

7:06:19 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Nice writing, too. :)

7:06:30 PM majdougmcknight: Heh, thanks.  Same to you two.

7:07:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: so then, let's get started.

7:07:14 PM majdougmcknight: I indeed enjoyed reading that.  I even grinned and chuckled as the admiral got cockblocked.

7:07:41 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Poor Ian! :(

7:07:46 PM ltpercybusard: Isn't that what Vulcans are for?

7:09:43 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Okay then, let's get a move on.

7:10:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Tonight, we're putting our ship back together and making ready to get the hell out of Machen Bren space.

7:10:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: There's police-like tape EVERYWHERE.

7:11:19 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Any questions?

7:11:39 PM cmdrshelev: Who got murdered

7:11:42 PM lcdrtkirr: Can I use this opportunity to nick stuff from behind the bar?

7:11:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: If you want to face Jack Cahalan then yes.

7:11:59 PM lcdrtkirr: Like maybe some of that tea that isn't.. erm, nm.

7:22:43 PM majdougmcknight: ::Turns to the ever faithful Captain O'Grady.::  Okay, I want every single last one of these things scanned for any tampering.  Right after you inspect our scanning equipment.  Just as soon as we have our heads on straight down

7:23:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::just looks at Zuriyev::

7:24:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Zuriyev> Your mission is accomplished, Ian. Come on home.

7:24:16 PM lcdrtkirr: ::dodges around crew members bottlenecking at the door, apparently on a similar mission to hers, and begins her journal towards the labs::

7:27:51 PM cmdrshelev: ::Looks at the police tape::

7:27:58 PM VAdm Blackthorne: And get rid of all this trash.

7:28:06 PM cmdrshelev: Would you prefer evidence of things that haven't been tampered?

7:28:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::looks at him:: What.

7:28:50 PM cmdrshelev: SIR YES SIR

7:29:09 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Right.

7:30:19 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::looks around his beloved bridge:: What a bloody mess.

7:30:45 PM cmdrshelev: At least there aren't holes in the ship this time.

7:31:20 PM cmdrshelev: Where are we going after we make her move again?

7:31:36 PM lcdrtkirr: ::picks up a pair of lab techs muttering quietly about temporary double shifts with her keen hearing and, recognizing the voices, files away the intent to speak with them later::

7:32:56 PM ltpercybusard: ::Walks onto the Bridge at that, tapping away at her PADD. She looked up and frowned slightly at the tape::

7:38:03 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +McKnight+ Doug, I think I've found a bug.

7:38:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Let me know the moment we're ready, Lieutenant.

7:38:38 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (that was Jack)

7:39:24 PM ltpercybusard: Will do, sir. ::Goes about removing the tape from her station, glancing every few seconds at the PADD::

7:40:25 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::verrrry carefully puts the damned bottle on the damned counter::

7:40:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::clears out his chair and sits::

7:40:50 PM majdougmcknight: +Jack+ Just stay where you are, Jack, and don't touch it!  I'll be down with a team immediately.

7:41:40 PM majdougmcknight: ::As he's heading out the door::  O'Grady, inform the admiral.  I'll be in Ten Forward.

7:42:01 PM majdougmcknight: +Jack+ Are you dead, Jack?

7:42:06 PM lcdrtkirr: +Logan+ Go ahead.

7:42:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> +McKnight+ Not that I'm aware of.

7:42:26 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> +T'Kirr+ Commander, the first phase is complete.  You wanted to be notified.

7:42:53 PM lcdrtkirr: ::distractedly:: +Logan+ Is it positive?

7:43:19 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> +T'Kirr+ Err...  ::looks over what's in front of him:: I suppose it depends on your definition...

7:43:22 PM majdougmcknight: +Jack+ Then I'd say there's a good chance you're fine.  I have a hard time imagining why anyone would bother with explosives when they could have easily killed us all WITHOUT damaging the ship further anyway.  All the same, don't

7:43:35 PM majdougmcknight: touch it AGAIN.

7:43:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> +McKnight+ Oh, don't worry about THAT.

7:43:57 PM lcdrtkirr: +Logan+ Just give the results to McKnight.  Let me know when you've finished the next.

7:44:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +O'Grady+ Blackthorne here, what's the situation?

7:46:10 PM majdougmcknight: +Blackthorne+ Can't tell you much just yet, sir.  But it looks as though Mr. Cahalan's spotted a device of some kind.

7:46:18 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> ::checks to see the scans are running properly before loading a PADD and jogging to the lift::

7:46:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +O'Grady+ Roger that, keep me updated.

7:47:33 PM majdougmcknight: +Blackthorne+ Aye, sir.  Security out.

7:47:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> ::eyeing the bottle nervously::

7:48:39 PM majdougmcknight: ::True to his word, McKnight is there within 2 minutes, motioning in a group of marines who double time it in there after him, carrying mobile force field emitters.::  That it there?

7:48:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> Mmmhmmm

7:49:48 PM lcdrtkirr: EnsLogan> ::enters Security, looking around for McKnight::

7:51:06 PM ltpercybusard: Well. ::Looks at the PADD:: Full system scan is ALMOST done, but so far, all reports point to nothing having been tampered with. Just waiting for shields and antimatter containment field reports now.

7:51:43 PM VAdm Blackthorne: That's good news at least.

7:53:18 PM lcdrtkirr: ((left twice in a row, that takes talent... McKnight if you're phased, show us a sign!))

7:53:51 PM ltpercybusard: (His connection's been flipping out all night. And apparently AIM's being a bitch now too)

7:56:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: The second you're comfortable starting the engines, give the word.

7:57:02 PM ltpercybusard: Aye, sir.

7:58:10 PM majdougmcknight: (Woo!)

7:58:24 PM lcdrtkirr: ::turns her head, spotting the tech she sought:: Duri, did you find that case yet?

7:58:37 PM majdougmcknight: (Okay, what was the last post anyone got from me?)

7:58:53 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (your security forces entering 10-F)

8:03:37 PM majdougmcknight: +Blcakthorne+ Sir, we've isolated the device, and are now preparing to send in the remote probe.  I'm gonna need everything the structural integrity field can give us to the Ten Forward floor plating.  And just in case, I suggest

8:04:01 PM majdougmcknight: the sections adjoining what's directly underneath us be evacuated and sealed off as well.

8:04:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Busard, see what you can do to give the Major what he needs.

8:04:41 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +McKnight+ Roger that, Major.

8:05:28 PM majdougmcknight: +Blackthorne+ Very well, sir.  Barring a great big bang to make it clear to everyone, I'll keep you appriased.  McKnight out.

8:05:39 PM majdougmcknight: (appraised)
