6:58:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hiya
6:58:38 PM TKirr: hi
6:59:12 PM TKirr: afk
7:00:53 PM MisterBoxingBear: Hey.
7:01:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hey
7:03:17 PM MisterBoxingBear: Okay, assuming it's up on the site, I'll totally catch up on BSG tonight.
7:03:26 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Sure it is.
7:05:00 PM MisterBoxingBear: Sweet.
7:05:41 PM MisterBoxingBear: So, as I already told Jason, Rach will be rather late tonight, due to road work on the way home from work.
7:07:47 PM VAdm Blackthorne: There she is :D
7:07:56 PM EnsRedshirt299: Hiya!
7:08:03 PM VAdm Blackthorne: This is my friend, the Redshirt.
7:08:10 PM MisterBoxingBear: Hey!
7:08:27 PM MisterBoxingBear: Redshirt? I hope this isn't the new doctor!
7:08:37 PM TKirr: Hey, Redshirt. =P
7:08:38 PM EnsRedshirt299: Yes, I know I have to die. :-D
7:08:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: She's here to watch us tonight.
7:08:55 PM MisterBoxingBear: Oh, I was more worried about how the shirt got red in your case.
7:10:58 PM EnsRedshirt299: I havent quite got everything decided so a red-shirt seemed appropriate for tonight.
7:11:09 PM MisterBoxingBear: Ah, makes sense. Welcome!
7:11:18 PM TKirr: Yes, welcome. =)
7:11:30 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Apologies for my slow reactions, on the phone.
7:11:47 PM EnsRedshirt299: Also I just woke up, so not quite all here.
7:12:03 PM TKirr: Apologies for my usual sleepiness. =/
7:13:29 PM EnsRedshirt299: Nice place you have here, love what y'all have done with the decor. ;-)
7:14:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I'll be around soon.
7:16:13 PM MisterBoxingBear: We have one more coming later. Traffic trouble.
7:18:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hiya Percy
7:18:21 PM LtCmdrBusard: Hey.
7:18:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Okay then! Shelev will be along tonight I believe, but toward the end.
7:19:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Percy, this is my friend the Redshirt.
7:19:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: She's watching tonight.
7:19:11 PM EnsRedshirt299: Hello!
7:19:27 PM LtCmdrBusard: Good day, Cannon Fodder-er, I mean Redshirt!
7:19:40 PM EnsRedshirt299: O:-)
7:19:59 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Okay then, let's get this party started.
7:20:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: When last we left, our time-shifting planet had just dumped us into an icy mountain range after we saw an older Percy in the desert, who told us that we all die.
7:20:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: And that apparently I color my hair, but that's all lies.
7:21:04 PM TKirr: >_>
7:21:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Any questions?
7:21:30 PM LtCmdrBusard: We're still all going to die, aren't we.
7:21:47 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Probably. But hey, at least you'll go in styl- no, not that either. Oh well.
7:22:06 PM LtCmdrBusard: Right. For the record: Hate hate hate
7:22:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Indeed.
7:22:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: With that said,
7:22:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM
7:22:18 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM
7:22:19 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM
7:22:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::ushering everyone into the cave to get out the accursed wind::
7:22:59 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Was already in cave::
7:23:08 PM TKirr: ::hurries herself into the cave, thinking 'not again'::
7:23:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::ducks inside::
7:23:50 PM EnsRedshirt299: ::Follows, just in case::
7:24:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::re-phasers the rock wall for warmth::
7:24:43 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::turns to the haggard bunch::
7:24:49 PM MisterBoxingBear: Okay, so...maybe THIS isn't such a good time. But the next shift we get that's even close to tolerable, we should really scavenge what we can from that ship.
7:25:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I'll have you all know, that what we just saw.
7:25:05 PM LtCmdrBusard: I agree.
7:25:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Is not the future that we'll experience. We all know that time is malleable, especially here.
7:25:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: OUR future is on Atlantis, and we'll get back to it. Understood?
7:25:52 PM TKirr: ::nods slightly, resembling more of a shivered jerk of her chin::
7:26:15 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Still staring suspiciously at the Admiral's hair.::
7:26:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Yes, when the next shift happens, if it's a good one, we'll go scavenging. In the meantime, warmth and food.
7:26:32 PM LtCmdrBusard: Yes, sir. Though, if I may be so bold, if we're making a list of places to explore, the depths of these caves might not be too bad of an idea.
7:26:45 PM LtCmdrBusard: Er...farther into the depths, at least.
7:26:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods:: I would tend to agree.
7:27:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: One of the chronoton surges came from beneath us.
7:28:35 PM TKirr: ::nods again, this time more recognizable::
7:28:45 PM LtCmdrBusard: Indeed, sir.
7:28:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::looks out the cave mouth to see a faint sun rising, weakly casting its rays over the peaks and fog::
7:29:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I think the sun used to be bigger.
7:29:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: T'Kirr, what's the time differential?
7:29:56 PM TKirr: You mean it will be in the future? We are approximately three thousand years before the last time.
7:30:21 PM MisterBoxingBear: Absolutely. However, if I may be so bold, I say we should also make more of an effort to see the fun in all this. It may be chilly out there, but I'll bet you all the latinum in Zekk's coffers that's a beautiful view out there.
7:30:27 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Look on the bright side, we're all younger.
7:31:07 PM LtCmdrBusard: Sorry, sir. Doesn't work that way.
7:31:09 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::grabs his uniform jacket and hands it to T'Kirr without pause:: I'm sure, Major.
7:31:26 PM TKirr: ::takes it and quickly wraps it about her shoulders::
7:31:43 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::steps out to the cave mouth, squinting against the wind::
7:32:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Safe bet, Doug.
7:32:53 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Slowly rises and steps to the cave mouth herself, looking out.::
7:33:09 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::takes in the view, fog settling into valleys with peaks jutting out above them, the faint sun trying its best to warm them::
7:33:24 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::I seem to recall Doug had his jacket on after last time, so...:: If you don't need me for for that tunnel search immediately, request 5 minutes to go appreciate it better. Given it won't be changing on us for another few hours.
7:33:59 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Anyone bring a camera?
7:34:40 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Pokes a few little buttons on her pen-ish thingie, and then aims it at the pretty. It makes a camera-like click.::
7:35:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Why am I not surprised? ::smirks and ducks back inside::
7:36:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::ensures the giant flowers full of water aren't in danger of freezing, keeping them near the heated wall, and takes a long drink::
7:36:22 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Silence is consent, and so Doug silently trudges out through the snow to get a better view. He's no Shelev, but he does pretty darn well in the cold::
7:37:20 PM MisterBoxingBear: ...I should totally add a few skiing programs to my holodeck list when we get back.
7:37:29 PM TKirr: ::sits down near the wall, appearing grumpy, for a Vulcan::
7:37:48 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Waits until McKnight's a little ways off and the others are inside...before sneaking out in her jacket and starting to make a snow angel::
7:39:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::assembles some of the firewood from two eras ago and lights it::
7:39:26 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::selects a tasty looking haunch of monkey and skewers it above the fire::
7:39:41 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Now if only we had coffee.
7:39:50 PM TKirr: ::decidedly doesn't watch, instead favoring to burrow into the jacket::
7:39:58 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Slides the sunglasses over his eyes. Somewhat weaker glare is still glare, and he'd feel like quite the jackass if he went out for a view, then came back snow blind.::
7:40:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::sits down next to T'Kirr while the monkey cooks:: It could be worse.
7:41:19 PM TKirr: ::muffled:: What could?
7:41:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: There could be nothing to drink but Andorian Jazz tea.
7:41:51 PM TKirr: ::pauses:: Fair point.
7:42:38 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Begins to realize that it really is pretty cold outside after the third snow angel. Then goes back inside after the sixth.::
7:42:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::sees Busard covered in snow::
7:43:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Hay Shelev)
7:43:22 PM cmdr shelev: (am i dead yet)
7:43:26 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (No, shush)
7:43:49 PM LtCmdrBusard: I...fell down?
7:44:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::smirks:: Repeatedly.
7:44:49 PM MisterBoxingBear: (They're on a snowy mountain range. Shelev country.)
7:44:52 PM LtCmdrBusard: I'm clumsy.
7:45:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Breakfast will be up soon.
7:45:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: No coffee, afraid to say.
7:46:10 PM cmdr shelev: :clint:
7:46:29 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Comes back in with a grin, clapping Percy on the back and shaking snow off in the process:: Okay, but there'll be hell to pay if you screw up my corned monkey hash.
7:46:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I'm looking for monkey stew myself, with a side of monkey bacon.
7:47:23 PM MisterBoxingBear: It's been ages since I had a proper monkey pot pie.
7:47:28 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Gives McKnight an odd look after finding herself back-clapped, then settles down, takes off her jacket, and starts poking around at her tricorder.::
7:47:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The chronoton readings start to jump, tricorders go nuts!
7:48:03 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Where from?)
7:48:16 PM cmdr shelev: Where is the bus going now?
7:48:21 PM TKirr: ::pops out of the jacket expectantly::
7:48:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Down)
7:48:49 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Sits down and helps himself to some monkey.::
7:48:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hopefully Risa, would that be too much to ask?
7:49:05 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Thought so) ::Looks at her tricorder with a frown:: Yeah...definitely looks like we're gonna have to check further down the caves.
7:49:14 PM LtCmdrBusard: Risa WOULD be nice.
7:49:30 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> SHIMMER SHIMMER SHWOPEDEDOOBOPAWOPBAMBOOM
7:49:47 PM MisterBoxingBear: At this point, I'd be happy with a nice Scottish bog.
7:50:07 PM LtCmdrBusard: You would.
7:50:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Our cave is intact, but outside is a broken landscape. The sun is large in sky. Lava is shooting out of the ground from various fissures.
7:50:42 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The air is almost chokingly sulfuric, but breathable. It's almost 50C with a red sky and dark looming clouds.
7:51:01 PM LtCmdrBusard: That...is not Risa.
7:51:06 PM TKirr: ::drops her jacket instantly and approaches the entrance to investigate::
7:51:18 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::coughs at the harsh air and squints out the door::
7:51:18 PM MisterBoxingBear: ...Right. Further down, you said?
7:51:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> A lava flow ambles past the door, blocking it.
7:51:39 PM LtCmdrBusard: Why yes, I did. Shall we?
7:51:56 PM MisterBoxingBear: I assume that tricorder can map our way back?
7:52:06 PM VAdm Blackthorne: As much as I don't like the option of going down into a cave where lava is shooting out nearby...
7:52:21 PM TKirr: ::stares down at the lavaflow:: It appears we have little choice.
7:52:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: It's either that or out the door, which is blocked by lava. Fairly easy choice.
7:52:37 PM cmdr shelev: ::Color is utterly drained from Shelev's face, and he is at a lack for words.::
7:52:38 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Breakfast is cancelled. Carry what water you can with us.
7:53:07 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Stands with tricorder, tying her jacket around her waist:: Right. Is it bad that I'm reminded of Dante's writings right now?
7:53:12 PM MisterBoxingBear: (Isn't the water all strung out on a pole?_
7:53:17 PM MisterBoxingBear: )
7:53:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::coughs:: No, that's about it, isn't it. Time differential, out of curiousity?
7:54:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Improvise!)
7:54:22 PM TKirr: ::gulps after glancing at the scan:: Five thousand, give or take?
7:54:36 PM TKirr: ::looks at Ian:: Future.
7:54:59 PM VAdm Blackthorne: This planet has some wild shif- ::sees Shelev:: Captain?
7:55:07 PM VAdm Blackthorne: You look like hell.
7:55:29 PM cmdr shelev: I'm... ah...
7:55:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::tugging at the damn uniform collar::
7:55:34 PM cmdr shelev: Boiling.
7:56:34 PM TKirr: ::stands near the dark crevice with a water bucket slung over her shoulder, looking back at the others, wondering what they're waiting for::
7:56:39 PM cmdr shelev: ::Goes forth in a daze.::
7:56:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::grabs the clothesline stick and skewers the flower again:: McKnight, grab that end.
7:57:19 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Shelev, hang in there, it'll shift again soon I'm sure.
7:57:26 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Thinks a moment, cups his hands, and splashes Shelev in the face before complying::
7:57:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::sweating profusely, but hey:
7:57:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Let's move.
7:58:02 PM cmdr shelev: ::Steams.::
7:58:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> We move out down the tunnel, and at least we have those nifty wrist lights for when it gets dark.
7:58:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Hooo boy it's a sauna in here boy howdy.
7:59:09 PM TKirr: ::leads the way, clearly not sweating::
7:59:19 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Figures that shirtlessness right now is the least of her worries, so in the interest of not dying of heat stroke, removes it and ties it around her waist too::
7:59:26 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Presumably has every outer layer possible tied about his body:: Does it get any cooler up ahead?
7:59:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::sees the de-shirting trend and goes along with it, since that's what a Star Trek captain has to do::
8:00:20 PM LtCmdrBusard: Yeah...no, sorry.
8:00:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::ties his shirt around his waist, splashes Shelev again, then moves out::
8:00:48 PM TKirr: ::follows the beeping like a dog with its nose::
8:01:21 PM MisterBoxingBear: (A Star Trek Captain would TEAR his shirt.)
8:01:26 PM MisterBoxingBear: (Okay, Archer was too lazy.)
8:01:30 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The tunnel keeps descending, remarkably with very little in the way of forks.
8:01:41 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Archer is not a proper Star Trek Captain. I refuse)
8:01:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (I'm just remarking on the need to go shirtless and sweaty, that's what a ST Captain does.)
8:02:08 PM MisterBoxingBear: Any indication of a power source?
8:02:31 PM LtCmdrBusard: Not yet, although the chronoton density readings are...pretty damn high now, gotta say.
8:02:46 PM VAdm Blackthorne: This tunnel is remarkably free of forks.
8:02:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: No cave system is this straight, naturally.
8:03:17 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Thinks for a moment:: Then maybe this isn't a cave system.
8:03:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Back at the entrance, our breakfast gets overcooked.
8:04:02 PM TKirr: Monkey> ::fizz::
8:04:25 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::pauses and takes a gulp of water:: Any indications of refined metals?
8:04:41 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> It's almost 55C now.
8:05:10 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::sweating like crazy, but looking damned ruggedly Star Trek captainy::
8:05:21 PM TKirr: Natural deposits of raw materials, but nothing refined.
8:05:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Keep moving and keep yourselves hydrated.
8:05:52 PM LtCmdrBusard: Aye, sir. ::Walk walk walk::
8:05:55 PM cmdr shelev: ::Starts to fall down.::
8:06:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::grabs Shelev:: C'mon, hang in there.
8:07:48 PM MisterBoxingBear: Perhaps the only one of us who's marginally comfortable right now can give him a hand.
8:08:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::pulls him to his feet and gives him a shoulder:: Keep moving.
8:08:39 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Steals a couple handfuls of water as he moves::
8:09:05 PM cmdr shelev: Why are we going down.
8:09:05 PM MisterBoxingBear: Never thought I'd be grateful for all those pointless marches they put us through in boot camp.
8:09:12 PM cmdr shelev: Why are we in this handbasket?
8:09:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Because if we go up there's nothing but lava.
8:09:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::T
8:10:07 PM VAdm Blackthorne: T'Kirr, help me with him.
8:10:30 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::blinks as his eyes go sweaty, wipes them with his free hand::
8:10:48 PM TKirr: ::looks back, then sees the struggle::
8:11:08 PM TKirr: ::quickly rushes to Shelev's side and takes a shoulder::
8:11:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::splashes Shelev's face again::
8:11:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::then takes a handful of water for himself::
8:11:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> We go dowwwwwwwwn.
8:11:59 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Looks back, eyes going wide, before walking quicker, and then with a look at her tricorder:: Holy crap!
8:12:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Tell me there's a freezer ahead.
8:12:24 PM TKirr: ::practically carrying Shelev's weight now, letting Percy do the scanning::
8:12:32 PM LtCmdrBusard: If by "freezer" you mean MASSIVE power source, then YES.
8:12:35 PM LtCmdrBusard: Up ahead.
8:13:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods tiredly:: Let's get to it.
8:13:18 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The temperature is approaching 60C.
8:13:31 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Walks slightly more speedily towards the power source::
8:13:47 PM cmdr shelev: ::Just getting dragged along at this point.::
8:13:52 PM TKirr: ::starts panting::
8:14:10 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::wipes his face off again and takes another gulp of water, brow furrowed in determination::
8:14:15 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Picks up the pace. The sooner he can rest and cool down even the least little bit, the happier he'll be.::
8:15:05 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Grunts angrily as his own brow sweat stings his eyes:: If there's someone operating this thing, I'm shooting them.
8:15:07 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> A cavern can be detected ahead, with massive power output and dense chronoton readings.
8:15:15 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I'm too tired to stop you.
8:15:28 PM LtCmdrBusard: I'll help.
8:15:45 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Approaches the cavern::
8:16:02 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Stops and lays the water container down...assuming you can do that.::
8:16:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> We arrive in a giant cavern...
8:16:36 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Levels his rifle and scans the area in front of them::
8:16:40 PM TKirr: ::lets Shelev collapse on the ground, gazing around the cavern and flipping open her tricorder::
8:16:52 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The cavern is filled with a reactor of some sort that is clearly not healthy. A yellow pulsating light surges intensely and then faintly fades away from its center.
8:17:04 PM cmdr shelev: ::ZZZ::
8:17:25 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> There are odd coils and hoses and all sorts of interesting gadgets protruding, but it's making a godawfully sick machine sound.
8:17:53 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::after Shelev is put down, his legs basically give out and he sits hard, looking at the machine: What is that.
8:17:59 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Eyes go wide in a more happy way, and she only barely stops herself from going "Eeeenteresting"::
8:18:20 PM LtCmdrBusard: Good question, sir. ::Approaches the machine and takes a closer look::
8:18:26 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The reactor is easily fifty meters high, with gantry platforms and stairways.
8:18:42 PM TKirr: ::reads over the scan results again, not recognizing much, and just gazes up at it again with intense curiosity::
8:20:25 PM TKirr: ::panting heavily, follows Busard::
8:20:59 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::wills himself to his feet, gulps some more water, and examines the machine::
8:21:04 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Looks at Shelev as he fails to spot a valid target and sinks to the ground:: Finding controls to get us out of this shift would be pretty sweet.
8:21:14 PM cmdr shelev: ::zzz::
8:21:37 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Because I presume 60 C is pretty damn hot, since Jason's a damn metric using commie::
8:21:46 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Takes a moment to look at the inner workings of the thing, before taking something out of her toolbelt that looks remarkably like a Sonic Screwdriver::
8:21:48 PM TKirr: (140)
8:21:52 PM MisterBoxingBear: (Shit.)
8:22:19 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Metric > You)
8:22:41 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Then practically jumps into the reactor.::
8:22:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Busard. ::panting::
8:22:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Can you fi- I guess so.
8:23:23 PM TKirr: ::stands just inside, peering after Busard::
8:23:39 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Clink clink plink whirr::
8:24:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::makes his way to where T'Kirr is and tries to make out what's going on in there::
8:24:26 PM TKirr: ::turns and notes Ian's terrible condition::
8:24:34 PM LtCmdrBusard: (You lie. He's just going over there to try and make out.)
8:24:53 PM cmdr shelev: ::...::
8:24:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (That requires energy!)
8:24:56 PM TKirr: (Yeah 'cause dying of heat stroke is a total turn on)
8:25:12 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Totally)
8:25:41 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::whiz pop bzzt:: Son of a bitch! ::whiiirrr::
8:26:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I'm glad she can think straight to work on this thing...
8:26:15 PM TKirr: ::peers in again:: Can I help?
8:26:19 PM cmdr shelev: ((how could you tell?))
8:27:14 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Just looks over with raised eyebrows, impressed that anyone can work in this heat. Struggling to his feet, he takes several large gulps of water before going over to keep the Andorian moist::
8:27:50 PM LtCmdrBusard: Sure. ::gestures her forward:: There's a couple circuits that've been knocked loose in the main breaker. Could you just hold these two panels ::She indicates a couple of panels of circuitry
8:28:16 PM TKirr: ::steps forward and pushes on the panels::
8:28:23 PM LtCmdrBusard: a few feet off the ground:: steady? It's a bitch trying to fuse them and hold them at the same time-oh thanks.
8:28:38 PM TKirr: ::has sonic envy::
8:28:38 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::the engineer in him just won't turn off as he ambles forward to try to make heads or tails of this::
8:29:58 PM TKirr: ::looks at Ian sympathetically:: It's hotter in here...
8:31:18 PM VAdm Blackthorne: When it's already this hot, what's a couple more degrees?
8:31:28 PM TKirr: ::perks an eyebrow::
8:31:39 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::wipes some major sweat from her eyes, but seems too sucked into the machinery's workings to realize that she's dehydrating.:: Right, so theoretically, if I realign these circuits so the current moves through both of them...
8:32:00 PM LtCmdrBusard: ...Then something should happen! ::Realigns said circuits::
8:32:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Power surges into the reactor and it starts to hum, louder and louder.
8:33:00 PM LtCmdrBusard: Right. Now we should pray that I didn't just make it explode.
8:33:04 PM MisterBoxingBear: (Goddam cat.)
8:33:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ((She plugged it in.))
8:33:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::looks around:: Maybe we should get outside...
8:33:54 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Quirks an eyebrow:: Outside into the lava?
8:34:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Just out of the reactor. ::speaking slowly, and moving rather slowly too:::
8:34:26 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> brrrrRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRWWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
8:34:44 PM TKirr: ::drops the circuit boards and starts to move::
8:34:58 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Looks at the reactor lazily::
8:34:58 PM LtCmdrBusard: Ah, yes. Running time! ::Runs out of the reactor::
8:35:28 PM TKirr: ::skids to a halt next to Shelev and looks back::
8:35:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::makes it out and turns to see what the hell Percy just did::
8:35:42 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> A giant surge of chronotons and be registered, but this time, being pulled into the reactor.
8:35:58 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Looks at her tricorder:: Well, this COULD be good...
8:36:03 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The reactor surges healthily, outputting yellow light in regular pulses.
8:36:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The chronotons stop, the reactor flashes and goes :toot: and we all shimmer again.
8:37:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::fumbles about in his shirt for his commbadge:: +tap+ Blackthorne to Atlantis!
8:37:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::prays to whoever might listen for a brief moment::
8:37:45 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Blackthorne+ Altantis here, Admiral.
8:37:49 PM LtCmdrBusard: WOOOO!
8:37:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Harper+ Five to beam up, directly to sickbay!
8:38:08 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Tries to put her shirt back on in time::
8:38:10 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Transporter shimmer.
8:38:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
8:38:15 PM VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
8:38:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
8:38:40 PM TKirr: ::pauses::
8:38:54 PM cmdr shelev: ::Status: KO::
8:38:55 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Le pause::
8:39:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::tosses a phoenix down on Shelev::
8:39:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Well we made it back, albiet shirtless.
8:39:46 PM LtCmdrBusard: Aw damnit.
8:39:48 PM TKirr: I've still got my shirt. >_>
8:40:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: It's sickbay, they're doctors.
8:40:24 PM TKirr: Yeah, but you aren't
8:40:46 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Can't see anything through the sweat!
8:41:08 PM LtCmdrBusard: So...next time, party with pizza and beer, right?
8:41:21 PM cmdr shelev: BTW, this was the last sim for Shelev for the forseeable future - it's been a jolly grand time but I don't think the last year has been my best work.
8:41:34 PM LtCmdrBusard: Aw, booo!
8:41:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Yeah, we're losing our blue guy. :(
8:42:04 PM EnsRedshirt299: Shelev...I hardly knew ya!
8:42:05 PM LtCmdrBusard: *ahem* I shall reitorate:
8:42:09 PM LtCmdrBusard: BOOOO!!!
8:42:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Thank you for the past three years, Mr. Shelev.
8:42:31 PM TKirr: Thanks, Andorian, sorry to see you go.
8:42:40 PM LtCmdrBusard: Dude, you were awesome.
8:42:47 PM VAdm Blackthorne: You've made wonderful contributions to this ship and her stories.
8:42:53 PM TKirr: Sure did
8:43:16 PM cmdr shelev: Shelev is going to have to be frozen at starfleet medical after this.
8:43:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: So he's not dead!!!! ::cackles::
8:43:35 PM cmdr shelev: Plus I'm kind of dried out story-wise.
8:43:42 PM cmdr shelev: We'll see what the future holds.
8:44:02 PM LtCmdrBusard: Oh, don't worry. Someone will draw a kooky face on the ice anyway. Hope you come back eventually :-/
8:44:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: The lesson in this folks, is that if you have a pet Andorian, to not leave them in a parked car. :(
8:44:26 PM cmdr shelev: IT WAS 60 FUCKING C
8:44:41 PM TKirr: No wonder he's leaving.
8:44:43 PM LtCmdrBusard: Well crap.
8:44:46 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Speaking of pizza and beer, this week is Atlantis's 11th anniversary.
8:44:57 PM MisterBoxingBear: Sorry, had to dash out for a second. But I shall throw in another round of sorry to see you go.
8:45:05 PM TKirr: Has it been that long already?
8:45:09 PM MisterBoxingBear: Honestly, the Andorian graveyard stuff? Gold.
8:45:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Yep, 11 years of this!
8:45:27 PM cmdr shelev: That was where I jumped the shark.
8:45:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: The Andorian grave robbery was one of my favorite plots ever.
8:45:44 PM MisterBoxingBear: Yeah, but see, I'd show up to see you jump the shark.
8:45:53 PM MisterBoxingBear: I mean...you'd actually have Shelev jump a shark.
8:45:58 PM TKirr: You just like loaning me out in exchange for tools. >_>
8:46:02 PM LtCmdrBusard: With chainmail?
8:46:03 PM cmdr shelev: How do you think they'll wake him up?
8:46:14 PM MisterBoxingBear: Possibly, if it was funny.
8:46:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Promises for the future!
8:47:35 PM LtCmdrBusard: I think they should use a jackhammer, personally.
8:47:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: For log purposes, no time elapsed on Atlantis itself. From Harper's point of view, we just beamed down.
8:48:17 PM TKirr: Okay. With that, I've gotta sleep. =/ See you next week, if I don't log with ya.
8:48:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Everyone has something to write about!
8:48:52 PM cmdr shelev: Okie doke, I'll see you around; this screenname isn't going anywhere.
8:48:58 PM cmdr shelev: I forget it's logged in half the time
8:49:24 PM MisterBoxingBear: Good, good. I might IM you for advice from time to time.
8:49:38 PM MisterBoxingBear: What with the comic relief vacuum, McKnight's gonna have to step up the jackassery.
8:50:07 PM MisterBoxingBear: In between bouts of toxic anger, I mean.
8:50:08 PM cmdr shelev: ta-ta, I'm going back to xbox live to be called a faggot and a nigger.
8:50:18 PM MisterBoxingBear: Fun! Night.
8:50:19 PM LtCmdrBusard: Oh, fun.
8:50:21 PM LtCmdrBusard: G'night.
8:50:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: That about sums it up!
8:50:49 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Night folks. :)
8:51:16 PM EnsRedshirt299: Thanks for letting me watch!
8:51:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: We like having an audience!
8:52:07 PM LtCmdrBusard: Verily.
8:52:44 PM EnsRedshirt299: Great, maybe next week we can color our hair together... ;-)
8:53:22 PM LtCmdrBusard: ...Alright, I declare Redshirt awesome.
8:54:38 PM EnsRedshirt299: Hehe laters!
9:01:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I think she's gonna join!
9:01:30 PM LtCmdrBusard: WOO!
9:01:38 PM LtCmdrBusard: She should play Puddington.
9:01:40 PM LtCmdrBusard: I MEAN.
9:02:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: No we need a doctor so I can hurt the cr- er, to keep us healthy.
9:02:22 PM MisterBoxingBear: Well, I'm out. Night.
9:02:27 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Night :)
9:02:29 PM LtCmdrBusard: Later.
9:02:56 PM LtCmdrBusard: Same for me, I think.
9:03:01 PM LtCmdrBusard: Later.
9:03:06 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Later!
