6:58:29 PM ltpercybusard: Hey guys.

6:58:38 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hiya

7:00:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Two more and we're good to go

7:01:25 PM ltpercybusard: Oh, right. Mike might be a little late because he has to pick up dinner, but he said that he already laid his plans down IC, so you can pretty much npc as much as you want where those guys are concerned.

7:05:05 PM cmdrshelev: you want fud

7:06:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Trying to lure the Vulcan in with logic cookies.

7:06:23 PM ltpercybusard: Logic cookies, you say?

7:06:27 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Yes.

7:06:35 PM ltpercybusard: Sounds chalky.

7:06:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: It probably is.

7:07:51 PM cmdrshelev: they have to be low fat in order for them to fit in those jumpsuits

7:08:02 PM cmdrshelev: low fat cookies are like chalk

7:08:08 PM ltpercybusard: Bleeeh.

7:08:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hiya Mike

7:09:10 PM ltpercybusard: Hoy Mike.

7:09:13 PM majdougmcknight: Hey.  Sorry I'm late, even though it looks like I'm not in last place.

7:09:27 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Missing one Vulcan

7:10:19 PM ltpercybusard: Offer her tea, maybe?

7:10:55 PM lcdrtkirr: ((I'm here o.O))

7:10:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: There we go

7:10:59 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Okay then

7:11:02 PM ltpercybusard: Hooray!

7:11:20 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Tonight McKnight and I are infiltrating Fjaz's house while Percy is being a slave and Shelev and T'Kirr are trying to buy a new ship

7:11:48 PM cmdrshelev: what is this trying shit we just have to pick out the one with the biggest spinnaz

7:12:03 PM cmdrshelev: we could buy a fuckin rolls

7:13:03 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Questions? I'm about to be in NPC hell.

7:13:25 PM cmdrshelev: WELCOME TO MY WORLD

7:14:04 PM majdougmcknight: See, I'd have figured your world would be a touch more surreal.

7:14:23 PM ltpercybusard: It is! Don't you see the dripping clocks?

7:14:28 PM cmdrshelev: I am an unfathomable well of something.

7:14:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: That's what I envisioned shelev's mind as

7:14:40 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Dripping clocks and circus music

7:15:07 PM cmdrshelev: hell I even turn into shelev at work

7:15:14 PM cmdrshelev: ask him about the gumball machine

7:15:26 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Okay, ready to sim? Thought so.

7:15:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

7:15:30 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

7:15:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

7:15:40 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::lurking outside Fjaz's house with the Marines::

7:16:02 PM cmdrshelev: ::Riding the Limousine of Fine Taste to the used starship district.::

7:16:12 PM ltpercybusard: ::Bein' all enslaved in the auction place, if I recall correctly::

7:16:37 PM lcdrtkirr: ::riding next to Shelev, minding herself::

7:17:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Elizabeth Blackthorne> ::a woman with curly brown hair and brown eyes is huddled in a corner, looking bloody out of place in her slave outfit, and scared as hell::

7:18:05 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ((Elizabeth Walker actually))

7:18:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ((Back to her maiden name, my bad))

7:18:12 PM cmdrshelev: Stop here, driver!

7:18:37 PM ltpercybusard: ::Looks over to the person, recognizing her, though waits a few minutes before approaching her:: Are...are you okay?

7:18:49 PM cmdrshelev: ::The Limousine stops near a lot that has a large sign that just says "24 HOUR STARSHIP BROKERS"::

7:18:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> ::looks up with a start:: Who are you?

7:19:19 PM majdougmcknight: (Ha ha, ew.)

7:19:20 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> I'm sorry... you're like me.

7:19:31 PM cmdrshelev: Ok, bankers and bodyguards first.

7:19:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ((If i typed Liz constantly T'Kirr would be very confused))

7:19:37 PM lcdrtkirr: ::peers out the window::

7:19:43 PM lcdrtkirr: ((Sorta, yeah.))

7:19:44 PM cmdrshelev: ((that's entertaining though))

7:20:25 PM ltpercybusard: ::Looks at herself, frowning deeply before nodding:: Yeah...can I sit here? ::Indicates the space next to Elizabeth::

7:20:41 PM majdougmcknight: ::Meanwhile, our heroes back at the mansion TOTALLY weren't doing something cliche like hiding in the bushes as the first security goons came rushing by, weapons drawn, to investigate the hole in their surveillance.::

7:20:44 PM cmdrshelev: ::The salesmen are streaming out of the building on a lot covered in tiny ass shuttles. They know money when they see it.::

7:21:26 PM cmdrshelev: ::Shelev gets out with the aid of his cane.::

7:21:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW>  Please do... when did they take you?

7:21:37 PM cmdrshelev: ALL OF YOU BE QUIET! Which one of you is Ed?

7:21:46 PM lcdrtkirr: ::follows out behind Shelev, watching the salesmen::

7:21:46 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::watches the goons rush by::

7:22:14 PM cmdrshelev: Random ferengi in the back> I'M ED!

7:22:26 PM cmdrshelev: Close enough! Ed, get over here. Rest of you, scram.

7:22:39 PM majdougmcknight: ::Anyway, McKnight waits only until the last said goon has their backs turned before rising to his feet and spraying the group on full auto.::  And thus ends the stealth part.  Guard house!  Now!

7:22:56 PM ltpercybusard: A little while ago...::Percy looked up to check on what kind of surveillance was visible at the moment::

7:23:23 PM cmdrshelev: ::"Ed" comes over with the poise only a greedy ferengi used starship dealer could muster.::

7:23:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::moves to run after McKnight::

7:23:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> I'm Liz.

7:24:35 PM majdougmcknight: ::Actually, McKnight would be bringing up the rear, staying just a moment to make sure all the guards here are well and truly down.  Getting shot in the back sucks.  Blackthorne will be following Coburn.::

7:24:38 PM cmdrshelev: Allow me to introduce myself, I am Mr. Tharr, a man of wealth and taste. This is Teresa, my accountant.

7:24:55 PM majdougmcknight: (That was chilling.)

7:25:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::following coburn then:;

7:25:38 PM cmdrshelev: Ed> Ah! I have heard of you before! It's an honor to be of service today!

7:25:43 PM ltpercybusard: ::After noting a distinct lack of surveillance, she lowers her voice:: I'm Persephone. And I have some good news for you.

7:25:56 PM cmdrshelev: Ed, you are the worst liar I have ever encountered, including myself.

7:26:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> What could that possibly be... this is hell..

7:26:40 PM cmdrshelev: Ed> ...... ::raucous laughter::

7:27:17 PM lcdrtkirr: ::stands watching the laughing Ferengi, looking accountant-ly::

7:27:40 PM cmdrshelev: Now that formalities are dealt with, I need a starship that can get into Federation space without getting shot at, know what I mean?

7:27:49 PM majdougmcknight: Coburn>::Quickly goes to one knee in response to a narrow miss from a disruptor, courtesy of a guard at the door to the building they were trying to assault, and returns fire with his phaser, just as McKnight comes up from

7:27:55 PM ltpercybusard: Then you're getting a second chance at heaven. My name is Lieutenant Persephone Busard, and your ex-husband's sent me here to save you.

7:28:06 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::joins in Coburn in shooting at the guard::

7:28:09 PM cmdrshelev: Ed> Oooo, you get right to business! Step into my office. ::Opens one of the shuttles on the lot.::

7:29:11 PM majdougmcknight: the rear, weaving his way around the firefight so as to get closer to the door.::

7:29:41 PM cmdrshelev: ::Ed tries and fails to make interesting small talk as the shuttle takes off and flies out of the atmosphere to tour the shipyards.::

7:30:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> ::blinks several times:: Of course, I should have suspected

7:30:27 PM ltpercybusard: ::Gives her a half-smile:: I stick out that bad, huh?

7:31:08 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> Well, that outfit.

7:31:22 PM lcdrtkirr: ::does her best to ignore the annoying Ferengi and looks over the selection::

7:31:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> But it's not just me, it's Ross, of course he came.

7:31:40 PM cmdrshelev: Ed> So what's your budget? Are you looking for a freighter, cruiser, frigate? Going to war with someone?

7:31:43 PM ltpercybusard: I know, miss. Do you know where he is?

7:32:01 PM majdougmcknight: ::And having finally gotten himself pressed up against the wall next to the door, he draws a photon grenade, and motions to the other two to stop firing for a moment as he reaches around and tosses it into the building before diving

7:32:10 PM majdougmcknight: to the ground well away from the entryway.::

7:32:17 PM cmdrshelev: My budget is "I need a starship that can get into Federation space."

7:32:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> They took him before I even was thrown in here. ::her eyes tear up:: I haven't seen him since...

7:32:40 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::stops firing and waits for the boom::

7:33:01 PM ltpercybusard: Who are "they", Liz?

7:33:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> The Orion goons... what could they want with a 10 year old boy?

7:33:42 PM majdougmcknight: ::Oh, the boom comes alright.  Two guards do manage to scramble out the door in to avoid being incinerated, but too slow to avoid being caught up in the shockwave and hurled off their feet.::

7:33:45 PM cmdrshelev: Ed> Gotcha. Civilian or corporate?

7:33:56 PM cmdrshelev: Military.

7:34:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::shoots one as he flies by::

7:34:02 PM cmdrshelev: ::Ed chokes.::

7:34:23 PM ltpercybusard: I...honestly don't know. Can you give me any other details? Specifics about the people who took him? Where you were when this happened?

7:34:26 PM cmdrshelev: Ed> Uh.... what's your budget again?

7:34:42 PM cmdrshelev: Just drive the damn shuttle and let me look. It'll be worth your while.

7:35:12 PM cmdrshelev: ::To T'Kirr, quietly:: Watch for something familiar.

7:35:58 PM lcdrtkirr: ::back to Shelev, ever quieter:: By familiar, you mean something that shouldn't belong here::

7:36:05 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> We were in my house on Earth, about to have dinner. I had just gotten home from work and Ross from school.

7:36:27 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> Several masked figures burst in the house and took us.

7:36:36 PM cmdrshelev: ::I mean something federation.::

7:37:07 PM lcdrtkirr: Right.

7:37:32 PM lcdrtkirr: ::continues scanning the lot::

7:37:34 PM ltpercybusard: And you were separated from your son on Earth? Or later?

7:37:54 PM majdougmcknight: ::Rises to his feet, checking his ammo as he rushes for the service entrance.::  Okay, that should stop them from tracking us.  But every guard left on the premises will be on their way here now.  We need to get in and out of sight,

7:37:56 PM majdougmcknight: or we're dead.

7:38:05 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> When we got here, I guess it was.

7:38:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> They threw me in here, I suppose it was a few days ago.

7:38:28 PM lcdrtkirr: ::points:: What about that one... ::turns to Shelev and as an afterthought:: ...sir?

7:38:35 PM ltpercybusard: And took your son somewhere else?

7:38:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ew> Yes...

7:38:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::follow::

7:39:05 PM cmdrshelev: ::Falls down.::

7:39:47 PM lcdrtkirr: ::mouths to him:: 'It's familiar' ...

7:39:59 PM cmdrshelev: Does that big federation ship run?

7:40:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> ::bites back tears:: So Ian... had you buy that get-up?

7:40:54 PM cmdrshelev: Ed> Yeah, it runs. Where it runs is another story; I'll have to see permits and stuff.

7:41:23 PM cmdrshelev: Yeah, yeah. Dock us. I want to take a look around. If it runs, we're in business.

7:41:30 PM ltpercybusard: ::Sighs:: The Admiral told me to get something slaveish. Apparently I have conspicuous fashion tastes, even when it's clothing I don't want to put on.

7:42:08 PM ltpercybusard: Uniforms are so much easier.

7:42:30 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> ::smiles a little:: Yes. Now what, Persephone?

7:42:52 PM cmdrshelev: ::Ed remotely opens the shuttle bay and lands.::

7:43:02 PM majdougmcknight: ::After forcing the door, the three find themselves in a storage room adjoining a long industrial kitchen with a few cooks milling nervously about the entrance, obviously drawn by the explosion outside.::  Everyone on the ground,

7:43:04 PM majdougmcknight: now!

7:43:07 PM cmdrshelev: So where did you get this thing?

7:43:17 PM majdougmcknight: ::Fires a few rounds over their heads, for dramatic effect and all that.::

7:43:30 PM cmdrshelev: Ed> Hee hee heeee... oh, it's all... perfectly legal!

7:43:45 PM cmdrshelev: I would expect no less, my friend!

7:43:46 PM ltpercybusard: Now, you get out of here as soon as possible.::Covertly grabs one of them transporter tags from her collar and and sticks it in Liz's:: This is going to get you out of here in a little bit.

7:44:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> ::touches it briefly:: Thank you.

7:44:13 PM ltpercybusard: ::Looks Liz in the eye, then:: And I WILL find your son. There's one of those for him, too.

7:44:50 PM cmdrshelev: Ed> Best way to see the thing is from the bridge. Follow me.

7:45:07 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> :::just nods

7:45:20 PM majdougmcknight: ::As the panicked serving staff quickly comply, McKnight wide angle stuns them all anyway before moving through the kitchen and taking up a position by the door leading into the house::  Well, we're in.  Any idea where to start

7:45:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::brandishing his phaser menacingly::

7:45:22 PM majdougmcknight: looking?

7:45:36 PM cmdrshelev: ::Ed leads the way with a flashlight through many many tunnels and turbolifts that require the attaching of a battery pack.::

7:46:06 PM lcdrtkirr: ::follows behind the Andorian and Ferengi::

7:46:42 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Never been here, but he's probably got someplace to keep unwilling guests.

7:46:46 PM cmdrshelev: ::The turbolift doors to the bridge open with an entirely too familiar <shweeeeeee> sound.::

7:47:26 PM lcdrtkirr: ::doesn't even attempt to hide her curiousity as she looks around the Bridge::

7:47:28 PM cmdrshelev: Ed> You'll have to forgive me; it's kind of a vintage model and I'm not sure how to activate the main lighting.

7:47:42 PM cmdrshelev: Oh, I think "Teresa" can figure it out.

7:47:52 PM cmdrshelev: She studies history in her off-time.

7:47:59 PM majdougmcknight: ::Sighs::  That's fantastic.

7:48:06 PM lcdrtkirr: ::breaks her concentration to give the Ferengi a nod::

7:48:24 PM cmdrshelev: Ed> Be my guest; I'm as curious as you obviously are!

7:48:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: No jokes about Starfleet Intelligence.

7:48:52 PM cmdrshelev: How long has this been on the lot, anyway? A fine vintage vehicle such of this should have gone fast.

7:49:06 PM majdougmcknight: Waste of my talents, sir.  ::With that, he takes a breath, kicks open the door, and immediately opens fire on a group of heavies rushing down a grand staircase::

7:49:18 PM majdougmcknight: Can't get bogged down.  Exit, stage left.

7:49:27 PM cmdrshelev: Ed> It's been here since before I started workin'. The owner of the lot says he'll give a giant bonus to whoever finds a lucky buyer.

7:49:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::joins in the firefight, then follows along::

7:49:39 PM cmdrshelev: Lucky indeed!

7:49:46 PM ltpercybusard: ::Stands, smiling a little:: It's going to be alright now. You'll see.

7:49:49 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> It's about that time that two burly goons open the slave pens, look around and head straight for Liz.

7:49:52 PM cmdrshelev: You got a title?

7:50:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> ::eyes wide:: You're sure about that?

7:50:03 PM majdougmcknight: ::Pulls another grenade as Blackthorne and Coburn fire away, and tosses it at said staircase.  God, I love those things.::

7:50:09 PM cmdrshelev: ::Ed looks ill.::

7:50:18 PM majdougmcknight: Yeah...I'm sure they've got another one we can use.

7:50:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Nice of them. Let me have one of those.

7:50:37 PM lcdrtkirr: ::looks over the controls at the back and flicks one of the switches on the ambiance panel, wondering at what sort of adventures a crew long ago had from this Bridge::

7:51:14 PM cmdrshelev: ::The sound of a very old starship stretching its bones rattles through the ship.::

7:51:18 PM majdougmcknight: ::Tosses Blackthorne his last one.  Luckily, Coburn has two more.::

7:51:40 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::tucks it in his jacket pocket::

7:51:52 PM cmdrshelev: ::Shelev chomps his cigar and pulls some plastic tarp off the captain's seat.::

7:51:57 PM ltpercybusard: ::Frowns as they enter:: Absolutely. Activate that tag, right now. ::Stands directly in between the goons and Liz::

7:52:19 PM VAdm Blackthorne: GOON1> MOVE BITCH, GET OUT DA WAY.

7:52:25 PM VAdm Blackthorne: GOON2> GET OUT DA WAY.

7:52:33 PM cmdrshelev: Status report?

7:52:43 PM majdougmcknight: ::And commence the running firefight/clearing.::  This asshole has TOO.  MANY.  ROOMS!

7:53:05 PM lcdrtkirr: ::eyeing the panel, making out the archaic terms:: It'll fly.

7:53:08 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> ... how.

7:53:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> ::fumbles at her collar until one of the goons activates it, then she cries out and slumps to the floor, writhing in pain:

7:53:39 PM lcdrtkirr: ::cranes her neck to Shelev:: How well, I can't say yet.

7:53:42 PM cmdrshelev: ::The lights on the bridge flicker on, revealing a dusty but otherwise pristine bridge... circa the early half of the 23rd century.::

7:53:51 PM cmdrshelev: That is a lot of goddamn pastel.

7:54:25 PM cmdrshelev: Can it get us back to federation space in a reasonable time?

7:54:29 PM ltpercybusard: Oh holy crap. ::Turns back, ducking down to Liz and activating the tag herself::

7:54:52 PM cmdrshelev: ((oh yeah we kind of need a transporter for that part of the plan, oops.))

7:54:58 PM ltpercybusard: (SHIT)

7:55:11 PM cmdrshelev: ((Have fun storming the castle :D ))

7:55:14 PM ltpercybusard: (Hurry it up, you too!)

7:55:18 PM ltpercybusard: (:-P)

7:55:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Nothing happens when Percy tags the tag, GOON1 reaches down and pulls her back out of the way.

7:55:47 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> GOON2 grabs Liz.

7:56:12 PM cmdrshelev: Well, we're in a rush I gotta say. So let's talk turkey. ::Plops his pompous ass in the captain's chair.::

7:56:24 PM ltpercybusard: Crap crap CRAP! ::Aims for what she THINKS is an Orion male's genitalia, and kicks towards Goon 1's::

7:56:27 PM lcdrtkirr: ::apparently remembering she's supposed to be grabbing people out of harm's way, fiddles in the back while Shelev keeps the Ferengi distracted::

7:56:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: GOON1> ::eyes go wide and he slumps to the floor::

7:56:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: GOON2> ::belts Percy hard across the face::

7:57:17 PM cmdrshelev: You got no title. That means we could book you if we wanted to. Second, you're harboring stolen goods since most of these are accounted for and none of them have been sent to auction.

7:57:27 PM cmdrshelev: Ed> ::sweating as profusely as possible.::

7:57:50 PM ltpercybusard: ::Falls to the floor in pain, getting up as fast as possible to try to jump on Goon 2::

7:57:51 PM cmdrshelev: However, I'm in a generous mood and I'm glad we found this thing and not someone who would not otherwise appreciate it.

7:58:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: GOON2> ::Tries to zap Percy's pain collar::

7:58:16 PM cmdrshelev: Ed> You're not in federation space! I could HAVE YOU ARRESTED FOR GRAND THEFT STARSHIP!

7:58:21 PM cmdrshelev: You could!

7:58:26 PM cmdrshelev: But you won't.

7:58:35 PM cmdrshelev: Because we're going to buy this thing, fair and square.

7:58:53 PM lcdrtkirr: ::starts searching for a specific frequency and, finding it, suddenly initiates the the most naff klaxon across the Bridge as sensors pick up the activated tag's signal::

7:58:53 PM majdougmcknight: ::Kicking open door after door.  Most of them aren't even locked.  He's just doing as much property damage as possible.::

7:58:54 PM cmdrshelev: After we test the transporter system, which is a major part of our requirement at the moment.

7:59:10 PM cmdrshelev: Oh, that's a lovely sound.

7:59:18 PM VAdm Blackthorne: GOON1> ::gets up about this time and belts Percy::

7:59:26 PM lcdrtkirr: ::looks sheepish and silences it, turning:: Um.. just testing the sensors.

7:59:53 PM lcdrtkirr: ::gives Shelev a meaningful look, one that says they should've been done yesterday::

8:00:10 PM cmdrshelev: Test out the transporter while you're at it. Ed's not going anywhere while we close the deal.

8:00:26 PM ltpercybusard: ::Tries to hang on but gets belted and falls off, letting out a cry in pain before trying to kick out towards Goon 2's kneecap::

8:00:41 PM cmdrshelev: Ed> ARE YOU GONNA BUY THIS THING OR NOT?

8:00:44 PM majdougmcknight: ::Until, as he rounds a corner, he immediately darts right BACK around said corner as the wall behind where he was standing a moment ago starts to disintegrate iunder disruptor fire::

8:01:19 PM lcdrtkirr: ::pushing buttons on another console:: They look suitable from here.  Hard to say unless I go down and...

8:01:27 PM cmdrshelev: Calm down earmuffs, it's rude to rush a man with a personal vulcan accountant.

8:01:39 PM cmdrshelev: ::Motions to T'Kirr to shoo::

8:01:49 PM lcdrtkirr: ::rushes off the Bridge, totally lost::

8:02:32 PM cmdrshelev: I am prepared to offer you the sum of... one million Orion credits.

8:03:04 PM cmdrshelev: Ed> INSULTING! Twenty million!

8:03:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> GOON1 and GOON2 are just too strong for Percy and kick her a couple of times while she's down, the kneecap hit not phasing the big guy.

8:03:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> They then haul Liz away.

8:03:27 PM cmdrshelev: ((Scotty, now would be a good time))

8:03:34 PM lcdrtkirr: ::finds the transporter room, as the ship is much smaller than she originally thought, and shoves something resembling a giant sheepskin off the console to access the controls::


8:04:15 PM lcdrtkirr: ::taps into the signal and, deciding there's no time like the present, tests the transporters::

8:04:16 PM cmdrshelev: Ten million and I won't have you thrown in the brig when we get back to our flagship.

8:04:19 PM majdougmcknight: (Shelev, you are the single greatest man alive.)

8:04:35 PM cmdrshelev: ((No, john tuturro is, but thanks))

8:04:51 PM cmdrshelev: Ed> ... Eleven.

8:05:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> GOON1 and GOON2 are very confused when Liz dematerializes.

8:05:39 PM cmdrshelev: You're a charlatan and a thief, but I accept pending a report as to the functioning of the transporter room.

8:05:43 PM ltpercybusard: ::Tries to force herself up, crawling after them:: Liz! Get your hands off of her, you--::Pauses herself when she realizes she dematerialized: ..YES!

8:05:49 PM majdougmcknight: ::Aims his assault rifle around the corner, cursing his lack of a proper imager, and just starts firing blind.::  Sir, now would be a good time for that grenade.  Minimum power, of course.

8:06:31 PM cmdrshelev: ((place bets on how soon Percy Busard has an orgasm over the fact that she is on a TOS era constitution starship and she's the only damn engineer we have.))

8:06:40 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::takes it out, sets it, and tosses it around the corner::

8:06:46 PM lcdrtkirr: ::watches a huddled woman materialize before her eyes::

8:06:51 PM ltpercybusard: ::She then, of course, reaches back and activates her own::

8:06:59 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> ::still half writhing in pain::

8:07:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: GOON1> WHERE GIRL GO.

8:07:17 PM lcdrtkirr: ::noticing the other tag activate, 'tests' the transporters again::

8:07:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: GOON2> WHAT.

8:07:30 PM cmdrshelev: GOON1> :iiam:

8:07:46 PM VAdm Blackthorne: GOON1> YOU MASH GIRL.

8:07:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: GOON2> NO YOU MASH GIRL. ::punches GOON1::

8:08:13 PM cmdrshelev: I'm tired of waiting, let's amble on down and get this deal concluded.

8:08:28 PM ltpercybusard: ::Starts laughing hysterically at this even as she dematerializes::

8:08:41 PM ltpercybusard: ACTION> Percy is beamed up? Please?

8:08:53 PM cmdrshelev: ::Leads Ed to the turbolift and goes down to the transporter room.::

8:08:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Yeah, yeah, Percy is beamed up already, GAWD.

8:09:01 PM majdougmcknight: ::Rushing around the corner, McKnight kicks yet ANOTHER door down as he and Coburn prepare to clear this room like the others...but he stops short.::  Sir, wrinkle.

8:09:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> ::starts to become coherent as the pain subsides::

8:09:44 PM cmdrshelev: ::Upon entering the transporter room, the two marines who have probably been silently following me because I forgot about them help the two new arrivals up.::

8:09:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::Steps around:: What wri-

8:10:20 PM cmdrshelev: Welp, we have a deal, earmuffs.

8:10:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::comes around the corner, phaser drawn, to find Fjaz holding a pistol to Ross Blackthorne's head::

8:10:41 PM lcdrtkirr: ::having been about to step around the console, stops dead when they enter::

8:10:46 PM cmdrshelev: Ed> ::stands there utterly bewildered.::

8:10:49 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Fjaz> Alright you've done enough damage to my operation.

8:11:01 PM lcdrtkirr: Why did you bring him down here?

8:11:02 PM ltpercybusard: Hahaha...::Is helped up:: Thanks. ::She then gives a sheepish look to Liz:: See? Told you everything'd be alright.

8:11:10 PM majdougmcknight: ::Naturally, has the bastard in his sights.::  You're telling me.  What are these doors, solid oak?

8:11:21 PM cmdrshelev: You have all the money. And if he tells anyone, he is going to jail.

8:11:34 PM cmdrshelev: And we are in a hurry, so I brought him to where the money is.

8:11:37 PM lcdrtkirr: I mean... the transporters are fine.  Tested them. ::indicates the two women::

8:11:53 PM cmdrshelev: ::Taps his cane on the floor.::

8:11:56 PM lcdrtkirr: These are the two slaves you asked for.

8:12:03 PM cmdrshelev: Right.

8:12:19 PM ltpercybusard: ::Frowns, muttering:: Goddamnit, not AGAIN.

8:12:58 PM lcdrtkirr: ::springs forward and pulls out the Orian currency::

8:13:08 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Fjaz> You ended my war. And now I'm going to make you pay.

8:13:20 PM cmdrshelev: Kindly give Mr. Ed 11,000,000 credits. Mr. McQueen, please escort him to his shuttle when we're concluded here.

8:13:54 PM cmdrshelev: ((Outtake: Wait a minute... will this thing pass smog?))

8:14:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Let him go and I won't shoot you.

8:15:12 PM majdougmcknight: ::McKnight might.::

8:15:16 PM cmdrshelev: ::Ed takes a look at the andorian in the suit, the vulcan accountant, the two gruff bodyguards, and two slaves that just got beamed out.:: Weirdos.

8:15:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Fjaz> You wouldn't dare. Starfleet morals. ::smirks and starts to back up through the door with a petrified child at gunpoint::

8:16:08 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::narrows his eyes and fires his phaser at Fjaz. On kill.::

8:16:19 PM cmdrshelev: ::McQueen takes Ed away.::

8:16:25 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Fjaz> ::has a moment to look surprised as he is blasted out of existence::

8:16:28 PM lcdrtkirr: I'll just... ::deep breath:: ...tend to your slaves.  ::walks over::

8:16:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ross> :wtc:

8:16:42 PM cmdrshelev: Ladies, welcome aboard what was, and I guess still is, the USS Horizon.

8:17:00 PM ltpercybusard: ::Eyes go wide, like kid in candy shop:: You're shitting me.

8:17:09 PM lcdrtkirr: ((Oh, Ferengi's gone, nm, magic edit))

8:17:09 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::rushes over to his son: Ross, it's your Dad... Ross, are you alright?

8:17:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ross> :psyduck:

8:17:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> ::looks around her:: Where the hell am I now?

8:17:44 PM cmdrshelev: I hope not, because t'kirr and I barely know how this thing works.

8:18:20 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::slings Ross over his shoulder:: Let's get out of here.

8:18:23 PM cmdrshelev: And my god I'm glad the decorators who chose these colors died two centuries ago.

8:19:03 PM majdougmcknight: ::Nods to Coburn::  You and the kid hang back a bit.  We'll clear you a path.

8:19:27 PM cmdrshelev: ::McQueen returns.::

8:19:45 PM cmdrshelev: McQ> "Ed" is gone, and very happy that he stiffed us for 11 million.

8:20:14 PM cmdrshelev: Ain't our money.

8:20:18 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Suppose Shelev has a transporter by now.

8:20:56 PM ltpercybusard: ::Grins, then winces at the pain remaining from getting belted across the face a couple of times:: Er...before I undoubtably need to get this thing running, can I get an ice pack or something?

8:21:54 PM cmdrshelev: Right time to test the sickbay.

8:22:17 PM cmdrshelev: T'Kirr, can you take care of them? I'll be on the bridge.

8:22:27 PM lcdrtkirr: ::briefly imagines Sickbay completely stripped and ducks around the console to check how to get to Sickbay::

8:22:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW>  Where. The Hell. Am I.

8:22:59 PM cmdrshelev: You're on a starship currently under command of Admiral Ian Blackthorne's XO and Science Officer.

8:23:00 PM lcdrtkirr: ::looks to Percy, hoping she'll explain, while she locates the map::

8:23:13 PM ltpercybusard: What he said.

8:23:21 PM majdougmcknight: ::Looking both ways as they make their way through the house.::  That WOULD be convenient.  Given that our only other way out of here is through the front gate.

8:23:25 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> ::collapses with relief and fatigue::

8:23:51 PM cmdrshelev: Forgive all the slave talk; it's the only way to get anything done in this shithole of a system.

8:24:05 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Call him, my hands are full.

8:24:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::gun in one, kid in the other::

8:24:20 PM cmdrshelev: Speaking of shitholes, maybe there's a replicator that can make medical supplies or something here.

8:24:30 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ross> ::Conveniently unconscious, I am running out of NPC bandwidth::

8:24:42 PM cmdrshelev: I wouldn't trust two hundred year old bandaids now that I think about it.

8:24:59 PM ltpercybusard: I hope so. ::Looks at the collapsed Liz:: Want a hand up?

8:25:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> ::gratefully takes it::

8:25:25 PM cmdrshelev: ::starts pulling down plastic tarps and more sheepskins and rugs and whatnot and finally finds a replicator.::

8:25:28 PM lcdrtkirr: ::having located Sickbay on the map, heads for the door, motioning for them to follow::

8:25:37 PM cmdrshelev: ::The replicator dies horribly.::

8:25:59 PM majdougmcknight: ::Gets on the comm::  Shelev, this is McKnight.  I hope you've got some good news, because we got ours.

8:25:59 PM cmdrshelev: Ok, I trust two hundred year old bandaids more than I trust this junkheap.

8:26:36 PM ltpercybusard: ::Pulls her up, then looks to Shelev:: If you can get my toolbelt, I'll see what I can do about it.

8:26:36 PM cmdrshelev: +McKnight+ I have some OK news. It's good in that we can transport you somewhere, it's bad because it'll make you blind.

8:27:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> ::looks around:: Starfleet's gone low budget I see.

8:27:28 PM majdougmcknight: Temporarily.  I'm going to assume you left that word out by accident.

8:27:47 PM cmdrshelev: Your toolbelt is still in the limo; we have to drop by there afterwards to tip the driver anyway. In the meantime...

8:28:43 PM cmdrshelev: +McKnight+ Look, we got a bunch of broads up here asking questions and percy lost her toolbelt and I think I just pissed off the ferengi am I beaming you people up or not?

8:28:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::looking around, wary of other guards::

8:29:23 PM cmdrshelev: ::Looks at Percy:: You can slap me later.

8:30:00 PM majdougmcknight: ::Looks to Blackthorne::  Sure as hell can't guarantee Ross' safety if we go the way on foot, sir.

8:30:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods:: Do it.

8:30:18 PM ltpercybusard: I'll keep that in mind. ::Mutters unhappily as she looks around::

8:31:09 PM cmdrshelev: ::Overhears the "Do it."::

8:31:47 PM lcdrtkirr: ::waiting at the door, having listened to the conversation, moves back to the console, looking to Shelev::

8:31:55 PM cmdrshelev: Do it.

8:32:30 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> McKnight, Blackthorne, and Blackthorne are beamed out.

8:32:32 PM lcdrtkirr: ::nods and gratefully locks on to two familiar signals and runs the old school sliders up::

8:32:52 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Well, after T'Kirr's statement then. :V)

8:33:07 PM cmdrshelev: ((This sim has all been about out of order retconning hasn't it))

8:33:49 PM majdougmcknight: (That's the essence of creativity.)

8:34:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::appears on the transporter pad::

8:34:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> ::runs over to Ian::  Is he okay, Ian?

8:35:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: He passed out, but he's fine. Are you alright?

8:35:18 PM lcdrtkirr: ::watches, swearing she just heard the transporters groan::

8:35:29 PM cmdrshelev: T'Kirr, can you get percy's toolbelt from here? I'd rather flee the system once we're all here than go back down there to bargain with the limo driver.

8:35:39 PM majdougmcknight: Is this what blindness looks like, or did you people just rob the Antiques Roadshow?

8:35:52 PM cmdrshelev: A little of both. Saves money on liquor.

8:36:00 PM majdougmcknight: Fair enough.

8:36:01 PM lcdrtkirr: ::nods and double-checks the transporters are still running.

8:36:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> Yes. Yes, thanks to you and your crew.

8:36:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Liz, apologies are in order, but trust me when I say there's not time yet. But there will be. Right now I have to -

8:36:26 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::looks around::

8:36:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: SHELEV. WHAT DID YOU DO.

8:36:36 PM majdougmcknight: By the way, sir?  Hell of a shot back there.

8:36:52 PM cmdrshelev: I bought the USS Horizon back from the Ferengi.

8:37:06 PM ltpercybusard: Isn't it great? ::Said with a grin::

8:37:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::looks back at McKnight: Thanks.

8:37:30 PM VAdm Blackthorne: The Horizon? Daedalus class, lost over 200 years ago

8:37:58 PM cmdrshelev: I hope so or we got screwed.

8:38:09 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Will she do warp 7?

8:38:17 PM cmdrshelev: I hope so or we got screwed.

8:38:47 PM cmdrshelev: ::Percy's toolbelt magically appears on the transporter.::

8:39:22 PM lcdrtkirr: ::is inwardly glad she didn't grab the entire limo::

8:39:33 PM cmdrshelev: ::Just pieces of the seat::

8:39:42 PM lcdrtkirr: Needs calibrating.

8:39:47 PM cmdrshelev: No shit.

8:39:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: We need to get out of here. Quickly.

8:39:51 PM lcdrtkirr: And upgrading.  About four times.

8:39:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Let's all get to the bridge.

8:40:21 PM cmdrshelev: You first, turbolift is a little cramped and you smell like a lot of burnt bad guys.

8:40:44 PM ltpercybusard: ::Grabs her toolbelt. Wheee, something resembling clothes!::

8:41:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Percy, can we fly this with so few people?

8:42:12 PM ltpercybusard: Should be able to, sir.

8:42:25 PM cmdrshelev: Can't be worse than a diesel forklift.

8:43:07 PM majdougmcknight: ::Surreptitiously sniffing his shirt.::

8:43:08 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::enters the TL, leaving Ross in Liz's care::

8:43:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Bridge!

8:43:35 PM cmdrshelev: ::TL goes nowhere since he's not holding the Handle.::

8:43:57 PM cmdrshelev: ((Why do I remember that part of the old show?))

8:44:08 PM ltpercybusard: Uh, sir...you have to grab the handle to do that.

8:44:20 PM ltpercybusard: (Because it was awesome?)

8:44:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Right.

8:44:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::grabs the bloody handle::

8:44:39 PM cmdrshelev: ((Also his shirt isn't torn enough))

8:45:56 PM cmdrshelev: ::Takes the next TL car up to the bridge.::

8:46:03 PM majdougmcknight: So...this'll be an interesting souvenier to explain from the mission we never went on.

8:46:03 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> ::fretting over Ross, making sure he's really alright::

8:46:52 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::walks out onto the bridge, marveling a moment, like he'd just walked into a museum::

8:47:06 PM ltpercybusard: ::Presumably, takes the next turbolift to Engineering...and may or may not start humping the walls while no one's looking::

8:47:06 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Easy, she was a derelict...

8:47:29 PM cmdrshelev: ::Gets out of his TL, and gives Ian his cigar back.::

8:47:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::dragging his fingers along most of the surfaces::

8:48:31 PM majdougmcknight: Please tell me we're not expecting to have to hope these weapons will still work?

8:48:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: One of the first of the warp seven ships.

8:49:04 PM cmdrshelev: ((I am going to presume McKnight is on the bridge.))

8:49:10 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I doubt we have torpedos, but the phasers likely work.

8:49:17 PM lcdrtkirr: ::after checking several other systems over, finding herself content with some and not so much with others, makes her way back to the Bridge and hangs out in the back::

8:49:18 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Stations.

8:49:25 PM lcdrtkirr: They don't.

8:49:50 PM cmdrshelev: ((Hell for dramatic effect, everyone is on the bridge except for Percy who is running half naked through a two hundred year old engineering deck))

8:49:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: So note in the ship's log, USS Horizon, found derelict. Now under the command of vice Admiral Ian Blackthorne.

8:50:05 PM lcdrtkirr: ::peeks at some sort of microscope, wondering what it's for::

8:50:06 PM ltpercybusard: ::Running:: WHOOOOOO!!

8:50:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Power the engines.

8:51:29 PM cmdrshelev: ::pushes a button and gets a shipwide BWEEP sound.::

8:51:43 PM ltpercybusard: ::Stops at the bweep:: Huh?

8:52:13 PM majdougmcknight: ::Sighs and sits down at the weapons station.::  Ready to...play with the targeting scanners, sir.

8:52:15 PM cmdrshelev: +Shipwide+ Blasted contraption, where is main engine spin- HELLO WORLD.

8:52:41 PM cmdrshelev: +Shipwide+ Assuming the speakers still work, engineering: turn up main engines.

8:53:07 PM cmdrshelev: +Shipwide+ Now how do you turn off thi-

8:53:11 PM ltpercybusard: ::Runs over to a comm console:: +Bridge+ Aye sir! ::And now, for the giddy pushing of buttons::

8:53:36 PM ltpercybusard: ACTION> PUSH!

8:53:41 PM cmdrshelev: ::Dust coughs out of the speaker when Percy speaks and a muffled "aye" is heard.::

8:54:11 PM cmdrshelev: ACTION> The starship does the closest thing a starship can do to backfiring, then goes whumma whumma whumma etc. etc.

8:54:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Clear all moorings.

8:55:28 PM lcdrtkirr: ::peeks into the microscope then mouths, "Ohh" when she figures out what it's for::

8:56:14 PM cmdrshelev: ::The lights dim then come back when the power umbilical from the moorings is disconnected.::

8:56:19 PM VAdm Blackthorne: EW> ::appears on the bridge from the TL car, holding Ross's hand, who is now conscious::

8:57:07 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::gets up from the center seat and sits at the helm::

8:57:08 PM cmdrshelev: Moorings clear. I hope.

8:57:25 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::checks the console for a minute, then lays in a course for Atlantis, he thinks::

8:57:43 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::clicks some more buttons::

8:58:05 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::maneuvers the ship away from the dock on thrusters and then impulse::

8:58:10 PM cmdrshelev: Ladies and gentlemen, let's book it. We got warrants.

8:58:17 PM lcdrtkirr: ::looks over her shoulder to see Blackthorne in the pilot's seat and watches him for a minute::

8:58:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::points the nose of the ship away from the facility and presses the warp speed button::

8:59:38 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::cranks it up to warp five::

8:59:47 PM VAdm Blackthorne: There.

9:00:04 PM cmdrshelev: Wow, he didn't screw us after all!

9:00:10 PM VAdm Blackthorne: See if the replicators work so we can get Liz and Percy some clothes. ::stands and takes the center seat back::

9:00:37 PM cmdrshelev: Aye, I'll start checking em.

9:00:51 PM lcdrtkirr: ::sticks to Science, watching to make sure they don't start flying apart::

9:00:52 PM cmdrshelev: ::Glances under a piece of equipment and spies something.::

9:01:05 PM cmdrshelev: One moment.

9:01:15 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::adopts a very Kirk-like pose in the old chair::

9:01:26 PM ltpercybusard: ::Running running:: Whoooo!

9:01:27 PM cmdrshelev: ::Gets his suit all dirty :( and roots around under.. something and pulls out a rectangular object.::

9:01:48 PM cmdrshelev: Ha! No title my left antenna!

9:02:08 PM cmdrshelev: ::Hands the commissioning plaque to Blackthorne on his way out to find something on the ship that is working.::

9:03:37 PM majdougmcknight: ::Pauses, still just sitting there since Mike is sick and out of it.::

9:04:53 PM VAdm Blackthorne: It's the only surviving Daedalus class!

9:05:12 PM cmdrshelev: also the thought of percy running around half naked in engineering going WHOOOOO would inspire me to draw it in mspaint but I suck at mspaint

9:05:30 PM ltpercybusard: Lmao. Uh...thanks?

9:05:55 PM cmdrshelev: greets to jason for braving all the hardcore star trek nerd wikis to find a ship that was a) tos era, and b) missing in canon

9:06:19 PM ltpercybusard: *bows to the awesomeness that is Jason*

9:06:20 PM lcdrtkirr: You told me Constitution class earlier.

9:06:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: The USS Horizon was the ship that planted "Chicago Mobs of the Twenties" on Sigma Iota.

9:06:59 PM cmdrshelev: I did but I fouled that up, fortunately I never said it in the sim window

9:07:05 PM lcdrtkirr: =P

9:07:15 PM cmdrshelev: greets to t'kirr for putting up with my cues

9:08:48 PM cmdrshelev: I knew this was a good idea

9:08:54 PM ltpercybusard: Only if you guys have to wear them too!

9:09:03 PM cmdrshelev: thankfully we are not doing season one TNG

9:09:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hm, they didn't have replicators on the Daedalus class, I think.
