7:00:54 PM drunkngunbunny: Things are tiring. I might not be at my best tonight, I'll warn you. Had a pretty exhausting day.

7:01:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: No worries.

7:01:44 PM MajDougMcKnight: Hey hey.

7:01:49 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hey Mike

7:02:11 PM drunkngunbunny: Hoy thar.

7:06:15 PM VAdm Blackthorne: welcome to internet spaceship

7:06:15 PM MajDougMcKnight: Evening, Commander.

7:06:32 PM drunkngunbunny: Heya.

7:06:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Now if we can drag the Vulcan in here

7:07:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Let's try not to have any earthquakes this week.

7:08:03 PM VAdm Blackthorne: SHELEV GET BACK IN HERE

7:08:17 PM drunkngunbunny: Hey, it worked!

7:08:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Of course it did.

7:11:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Everyone IM bomb T'Kirr

7:13:18 PM MajDougMcKnight: Done.

7:13:30 PM cmdr shelev: I just bashed on the keyboard a bunch

7:13:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: She picks up the phone "Yes I am coming! :colbert: "

7:15:41 PM MajDougMcKnight: Sweet.

7:16:10 PM VAdm Blackthorne: So nice to be able to annoy your simmers by telephone.

7:16:39 PM drunkngunbunny: Yeah...remind me not to give you my phone number ever :-P

7:16:53 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Yes but I have Mike's and can annoy you by proxy.

7:17:03 PM drunkngunbunny: ...Goddamnit.

7:17:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::cackles::

7:17:30 PM drunkngunbunny: *sulks*

7:18:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Be right there huh, T'Kirr?  Mmmmhmmm

7:20:06 PM MajDougMcKnight: No doubt revenge for the aforementioned annoyance by phone.

7:20:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: When she comes in everyone hand her a clock.

7:22:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::hands T'Kirr a clock::

7:22:36 PM drunkngunbunny: *hands T'Kirr a clock*

7:22:51 PM LCdr TKirr: I'm aware. <_<

7:23:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Just had to give you a hard time.

7:23:09 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Okay then, let's get this going.

7:23:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Tonight, we have completed the evacuation of the Atlantis over to the Horizon. Gravity was getting a bit weak there at the end but we managed.

7:23:45 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Horizon being a much smaller ship, it is rather crowded over there.

7:24:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: But now we're making sure Shelev doesn't break the ship by merely being aboard her and getting ready to tow Atlantis.

7:24:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Questions?

7:25:03 PM MajDougMcKnight: I assume we're keeping a shuttle escort around her?

7:25:08 PM MajDougMcKnight: For supplies and such?

7:25:25 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Sure, that's fine.


7:25:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

7:25:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

7:28:43 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> Look, you have to figure it out. I can't do it for you, I'm no pilot.

7:28:56 PM LCdr TKirr: ::along with countless other things that need attention, attempts to move at an acceptable pace while becoming accustomed to the different interface at her new station::

7:29:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Helmsman> I'm workin' on it.

7:29:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> And where in the ::unintelligible swearing:: is Shelev? I'd ask the damn computer but it's an idiot.


7:30:24 PM cmdr shelev: Random guy> I thought you were the one who bought it!

7:30:25 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Random Guy> Right over the river! :haw:

7:30:42 PM MajDougMcKnight: Okay guys, just like on the forest planet.  Only with less getting screamed at for phasering mother nature.

7:30:45 PM cmdr shelev: Random guy> Take a left at 8th and ruby, you can't miss it!

7:30:46 PM LCdr TKirr: Em... ::distractedly, shifting gears to do Harper's bidding::

7:31:19 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Random Guy> No it's three blocks further!

7:31:38 PM cmdr shelev: YOU ARE ALL FIRED

7:31:49 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::looking damned annoyed at having to be on this rustbucket, hands on her hips in the middle of the bridge::

7:33:25 PM LCdr TKirr: +Shelev+ Harper ::looks up under her lashes at the Commander in question:: would like you to come to the Bridge, so please do so.

7:33:34 PM LCdr TKirr: +Shelev+ Promptly.

7:33:35 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::Leaves 2 men to guard the entrance to provision storage and a few more men to finish sorting it before making his way to the bridge to check in with whoever's sitting in the big chair right now.::

7:33:54 PM LCdr TKirr: ::shuts her eyes::

7:34:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> Yeah yeah, I heard.

7:34:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Engineering+ Busard, is this pile ready to fly?

7:34:13 PM cmdr shelev: ::Goes through door 34065. Arrives on the bridge.::

7:35:19 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::swears in Mandarin::

7:35:56 PM LCdr TKirr: ((Harper was in communications, wasn't she))

7:35:57 PM drunkngunbunny: +Bridge+ Almost. We're making certain that the engines won't drop out from under us first.

7:36:03 PM cmdr shelev: This ship reminds me of Boston with fewer drunken frat kids.

7:36:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ((Science, but linguistics was a hobby of hers))

7:36:30 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::Shortly after, McKnight shoves his way up to the bridge and through the door behind Shelev::  Last I checked, you could BREATHE in Boston.  God, they really packed it in on these things.

7:36:31 PM LCdr TKirr: ((Just the swearing bits, I gather))

7:36:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Percy+ I'm not counting on it.

7:36:49 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ((No, she's just good at language))

7:37:10 PM drunkngunbunny: +Bridge+ That's very encouraging, ma'am. I'll pass that on to the men.

7:37:13 PM MajDougMcKnight: Also, if we had time to replicate liquor, I'd be happy to get to work on that second part.

7:37:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::moves away from the center seat, surrendering it to Shelev, and speaks through her teeth:: The "ship" should be ready to depart soon.

7:37:41 PM cmdr shelev: Please tell me you have guards on Jack.

7:38:08 PM cmdr shelev: Excellent work, commander!

7:38:40 PM MajDougMcKnight: We should be fairly well provisioned by then, spazzing protein resequencers be damned.  I doubt anyone's looking forward to non-stop field rations, but it'll get us home.

7:38:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::walks over to T'Kirr:: Tell me the tractor beam works.

7:39:13 PM LCdr TKirr: ::looks at Harper:: The tractor beam works.

7:40:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> You would randomly speak Ferengi.

7:41:09 PM cmdr shelev: You weren't speaking english, which means I was being slandered.

7:41:14 PM cmdr shelev: ::Goes through the data discs that were lodged in the armrest of the command chair, looking for an owner's manual.::

7:43:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::looks into that hood thing that Spock was always looking into because she has never gotten to use one of those before:: Fascinating.

7:45:26 PM LCdr TKirr: ::decides to ignore Shelev's last uttering in favor of noting an increased power reading to several of her systems::

7:52:00 PM cmdr shelev: +Busard+ Enough to pull the other ship and move at the same time is what I'm looking for.

7:52:30 PM MajDougMcKnight: Right, well if anyone needs me, I'll be...somewhere on this tub.  Cramped like this, Star Fleet or not, there's going to be tempers flaring.

7:52:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> Not like there's an XO chair on this bridge anyway, this is as good a place as any.

7:53:14 PM drunkngunbunny: +Shelev+ Ah. Well, in that case...twenty minutes, if we don't blow up first.

7:53:36 PM cmdr shelev: :|

7:54:04 PM cmdr shelev: +Busard+ Thank you! We depart in 20 minutes. Please do not permit us to explode if avoidable.

7:55:20 PM cmdr shelev: Helmsman, do you know how to pilot this ship yet?

7:55:42 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Helmsman> I think so. I can either fly the ship or work the stereo, I'm not sure.

7:55:52 PM cmdr shelev: Either way, we win.

7:55:56 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::Wanders off the bridge::  I don't even want to THINK about trying to find the bathroom on this thing.

8:22:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The camera cuts to Blackthorne, who is on the Yeager's holodeck, half asleep on the beach in sunglasses with a martini in one hand and a martini in the other hand.

8:23:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The camera cuts back to Harper, who is contemplating suicide.

8:24:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> Machen Bren sabotage.

8:24:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> Which, ultimately, was your fault since you nuked their atmosphere.

8:25:05 PM cmdr shelev: I was never charged!

8:25:53 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> Yes you were, the Admiral just got you out of it.

8:26:56 PM cmdr shelev: ...By starfleet.

8:27:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> Semantics.

8:27:13 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::Has, by now, found the nearest bathroom.  Unfortunately, so have a crap load of other people.  Now, with a long sigh, he helps make sure the line stays nice and orderly.::  I miss the war.

8:27:41 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (That reminds me of the first gas station after a 3 hour accident on I-65N in Indiana)

8:29:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM

8:29:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM

8:29:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM

8:29:41 PM LCdr TKirr: ::pauses::

8:29:48 PM drunkngunbunny: ::pauses::

8:30:06 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Great job guys that was hilarious.

8:30:13 PM LCdr TKirr: Yeah, heh

8:30:18 PM drunkngunbunny: Totally :-)

8:30:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Next week we arrive at Earth!

8:30:46 PM VAdm Blackthorne: And so does Blackthorne!

8:30:48 PM drunkngunbunny: Wooo!

8:31:26 PM LCdr TKirr: Yay!

8:32:02 PM cmdr shelev: I will die alone

8:32:18 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian prefers public executions.

8:33:26 PM VAdm Blackthorne: But you'll technically be alone. There will be Everyone Who is Not Dying, and then You.

8:33:38 PM cmdr shelev: :[

8:34:59 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Okay then that's all for this week. Tune in next time for Shelev's death!

8:35:04 PM LCdr TKirr: O.o

8:35:13 PM cmdr shelev: That's every week

8:36:34 PM MajDougMcKnight: Right, later.  I'll bring coffee next time.

8:36:45 PM VAdm Blackthorne: See y'all next time
