10:01:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hiya
10:01:27 PM TKirr: hey
10:06:10 PM TKirr: Hello. =)
10:06:13 PM MajDougMcKnight: Evening, guys. Sorry I ran a bit late.
10:06:22 PM TKirr: Eh.
10:06:51 PM MajDougMcKnight: The good news is that it's two characters now accounted for. Rachel's getting internet installed tomorrow, but in the meantime, we're doing the computer sharing bit one more night.
10:07:02 PM MajDougMcKnight: R: Hoy thar, peoplefolk!
10:07:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hiya!
10:08:38 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Okay then, we're ready to go.
10:10:03 PM MajDougMcKnight: R:Woohoo!
10:10:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Firstly, I put all the NPCs up on the website, let me know if I got any of yours wrong.
10:11:47 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Secondly, after hearing that the thing what died in sickbay wasn't Carre, Blackthorne had the Atlantis take a major U-turn and haul ass back to Milyax.
10:12:07 PM MajDougMcKnight: R: Hooray! Also, Milyax?
10:12:25 PM TKirr: Irren III.
10:12:26 PM VAdm Blackthorne: The planet we were all on.
10:12:52 PM MajDougMcKnight: R: Yes. I know. It simply sounds silly :-P
10:13:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: :V
10:13:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Carre, in the meantime, has woken up in the company of Jesren.
10:13:47 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Questions?
10:13:48 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Bastard.
10:14:19 PM MajDougMcKnight: M: Has the senior staff been notified of the situation?
10:14:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Yes.
10:14:52 PM MajDougMcKnight: R: Well, shit.
10:15:47 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Okay then
10:15:49 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM
10:15:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM
10:15:52 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM
10:16:43 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::steps out onto the bridge:: ETA to Irren III?
10:16:58 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> Orbit in five minutes, sir.
10:17:15 PM TKirr: ::on the Bridge, manning Science::
10:17:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: T'Kirr, get Uiren on the horn.
10:17:35 PM TKirr: ::nods and hails the Milyax Mecca::
10:17:40 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::McKnight is spending their remaining ETA down in security, where he and an assault team are almost geared up, awaiting specific orders.::
10:18:03 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> Doctor, are you awake?
10:18:32 PM TKirr: Uiren> ::appears on the screen, looking quite surprised:: Starfleet! You're back... did you forget something?
10:18:43 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *keeps eyes closed*
10:19:25 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::Percy, meanwhile, was in Engineering, annoyed that not ONLY has a Carre clone been discovered, but she's realized that one of her pets is missing.:: Grr. Puddington, take that wrench out of your mouth. Grr.
10:19:38 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I have exceedingly good reason to believe that my Chief Medical Officer was replaced with a biomorphic double while she was on the surface, and that she's still there.
10:19:53 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *glares* I'm awake now.
10:20:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> My apologies Doctor, but utmost secrecy had to be maintained...
10:20:27 PM TKirr: Uiren> ::just blinks dumbly for a moment, then lowers his tough-skinned brow:: What?!
10:20:45 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Secresy...secresy for what?!
10:21:44 PM TKirr: Uiren> ::approaches the screen:: There must be some mistake. I have been assured head researcher Jesren took good care of your people.
10:22:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> They've been making us all sick with their technology, we needed a doctor.
10:22:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Whatever was masquerading as our doctor died in our Sickbay and we're certain it was not her.
10:24:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I would like your full cooperation in finding her, Overseer.
10:25:36 PM DrRoxanneCarre: So you kidnapped me?
10:25:58 PM TKirr: Uiren> ::takes on an affronted aire:: So... you think, what, Milyax's biotech has suddenly jumped ahead a few years? Admiral, I assure you we aren't capable of what you're accusing us of!
10:26:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> It was the only way I could attract a doctor, by pretending to be one of them and going through official channels.
10:26:38 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::turns to T'Kirr:: Commander, send down the Marines.
10:26:56 PM TKirr: ::perks a brow and goes for the comm::
10:27:37 PM TKirr: Uiren> ::frowns:: Wait, what? Let's not be hasty! What do you need marines for?
10:27:44 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::McKnight observes this all, watching a feed from the main viewer. Fortunately, his connection isn't two-way:: It's times like these I wonder if the Klingons are onto something with their protocol for dealing with puffed shirt
10:27:47 PM MajDougMcKnight: locals.
10:28:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> My people live below the surface, far below. The Ren on the surface have polluted the planet and are making us sick.
10:28:49 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::Percy was NOT watching a feed, and thus was completely unaware of the situation. She had other things to worry about.:: Puddington, get your head away from that energy radiator. It'll give you brain cancer.
10:28:56 PM MajDougMcKnight: Puddington> :-(
10:29:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Then I assume I'll have the full cooperation of your government?
10:29:14 PM DrRoxanneCarre: And you just decided to take me? You could have asked.
10:29:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> You might have said no.
10:30:28 PM TKirr: Uiren> ::raises his hands in supplication:: Please, you must know that I have no knowledge of what this is about. Of course... if it is as you say, I'll see to it at once. Will you give me a few minutes to make contacts?
10:31:38 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Work quickly.
10:32:07 PM TKirr: Uiren> ::nods quickly and the comm switches back to a view of orbit::
10:32:18 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::Rolls his eyes:: It doesn't take THAT long to burn evidence.
10:32:32 PM TKirr: Admiral, do you believe him?
10:32:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I sense no deception from him. Send down McKnight's team to Jesren's lab, start there.
10:33:12 PM TKirr: ::nods:: +McKnight+ T'Kirr to McKnight.
10:34:22 PM DrRoxanneCarre: I might have brought more help, also
10:34:24 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::Strapping those awesome fingerless gloves on, because they just look so cool:: +T'Kirr+ McKnight here.
10:35:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> Perhaps you still can, but first, you must work to see if we can be helped.
10:35:18 PM TKirr: +McKnight+ Send your team down to Jesren's lab. Let us know if you find Carre.
10:37:11 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::Donning his black baseball cap, since the team leader is frequently too good for a helmet:: +T'Kirr+ And if they try throwing some red tape our way once we get there?
10:38:40 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> I'm afraid I must insist. ::glances at the weapon on his belt, but doesn't pull it::
10:40:36 PM TKirr: +McKnight+ Overseer Uiren is aware of our intentions and claims to not know of Carre's kidnapping. If you receive resistance, do what you do best.
10:41:06 PM DrRoxanneCarre: You know I probably would have worked harder had you just asked.
10:41:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> Though some of my facade was just that, I am still a doctor. If I sense that you're not working as hard as you can, you will be punished. Remember your oath.
10:41:57 PM MajDougMcKnight: +T'Kirr+ One mean banjo tune, yes ma'am. McKnight out.
10:42:22 PM TKirr: ::looks over as her console beeps:: The Mecca is hailing.
10:42:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Onscreen.
10:43:14 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::Percy:: Puddington, I swear, if I catch you snorting from the plasma generator ONE MORE TIME...
10:44:19 PM TKirr: Uiren> ::appears once again on the screen, his expression much less surprise and much more confusion:: Yes, Admiral... I'm at quite a loss. Jesren's team is not answering my calls.
10:44:26 PM TKirr: Uiren> This is greatly disturbing. If you'll allow me to send my authorities to the laboratory...
10:44:40 PM VAdm Blackthorne: My marines will be knocking on their door before your authorities. Just don't get in their way and help anyway you can.
10:45:00 PM DrRoxanneCarre: I didnt say I wouldnt try, I said I might have tried harder.
10:45:03 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::And with that, McKnight and his team, a half dozen men in all, step onboard the transporter pad that security is fortunate enough to have on premises for rapid deployment. Within moments, they materialize inside the lab, and
10:45:23 PM MajDougMcKnight: immediately fan out to secure the area prior to commencing scans.::
10:45:43 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> Please begin then. You may start with me as your first patient. You will notice me quite different when you scan this time.
10:45:54 PM TKirr: Uiren> ::looks about to argue, but thinks better of it:: Yes, of course... I suppose the Federation should take care of this matter. Please, let me know if I can be of help.
10:46:59 PM TKirr: LabAssistant001> ::turns at the arrival of the party and his eyes go wide and hands go up at the sight of them::
10:48:38 PM TKirr: LabAssistantsAssorted> ::also raise their hands and cower::
10:49:30 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *sacans and examines results* Interesteing...
10:50:07 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::Keeps his rifle lowered, but the fact that he doesn't order his men to lower theirs should speak adequately to the severity of his purpose here.:: Jesren. Where is he?
10:51:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> ::his skin shimmers::
10:51:54 PM TKirr: LA1> ::points uselessly:: He... left. With that alien doctor.
10:54:09 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::Glares:: Yeah, we're going to want to have a little chat with him about that. He left and went where?
10:55:46 PM TKirr: LA1> ::looks afraid for his life, staring at McKnight's rifle:: I don't know, I swear!!
10:58:50 PM TKirr: ::scanning the planet for Carre, square meter by square meter::
10:58:59 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Commander, see if Busard can boost sensor gain.
10:59:30 PM DrRoxanneCarre: This says you are not a Ren at all.
10:59:33 PM TKirr: +Busard+ T'Kirr to Busard. Can you give me a boost to sensors?
10:59:51 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::Lets his hand fly to the setting control on his rifle. He sets it to...the exact same level of stun it was on before, but the faint, high pitched whistling is nonetheless quite ominous in its own way:: If you're trying to
10:59:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> We are called Shudouren. I am currently a copy of a Ren.
11:00:20 PM MajDougMcKnight: placate me, you're doing a piss poor job. Let me help. Right now, you want to start telling me what you DO know, post haste.
11:01:49 PM TKirr: LA1> ::swallows dramatically:: Jesren... he walked by--::points to the inner doorway::--through here, with that alien woman, well, like you, I mean... no offense!
11:01:59 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::Frustration turns to a sudden "light bulb" effect on Busard's face, just as sensors are mentioned.:: +T'Kirr+ On it, ma'am. Also, I may be completely off, but I THINK I may know how to find Carre.
11:02:15 PM TKirr: LA1> ... and he said they were leaving and to cancel his appointments, and he didn't say where he was going! I didn't ask, I didn't think to ask.. I swear, I don't know where he is!
11:02:39 PM MajDougMcKnight: Also, Puddington, what the hell did I say about licking the warp core? You'll give it rabies!
11:02:49 PM MajDougMcKnight: Warp Core> :-(
11:02:50 PM DrRoxanneCarre: You are not something I am familiar with, do you have more information on your speicies?
11:03:19 PM TKirr: +Busard+ ::her brow perk audible over the comm:: Besides a boost to sensors?
11:04:31 PM MajDougMcKnight: +T'Kirr+ Er, yes. That's what I meant. See...uh...when I went to my physical with Dr. Carre, I was carrying this little robot I was working on, and I may be totally incorrect in my reasoning beyond this point but I am absolutely
11:04:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> ::points to a large amorphic blob that just blorfed in:: That is our normal state.
11:05:33 PM MajDougMcKnight: certain that it went missing at almost exactly that time. Which means Carre might possibly have it.
11:06:17 PM MajDougMcKnight: ...This is significant because said robot had a transceiver built into it.
11:07:45 PM TKirr: +Busard+ It's worth a scan. Can you modify my sensors to detect it?
11:07:48 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::Nods, looking only placated in the sense that he doesn't start shooting.:: Thar, Katsumoto, you're with me. The rest of you, secure this place and tear their records a new one.
11:07:52 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *slightly repelled*
11:08:09 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *strangely acinated*
11:08:17 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *facinated
11:09:14 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::Tapping away at the console:: +T'Kirr+ On it. ::Adding the specific frequency to the sensor array.:: It should show up now.
11:09:15 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::drumming his fingers on his chair arm, highly irritated::
11:10:36 PM TKirr: +Busard+ ::nods at the new glowy on her panel:: I have it. Initiating scan.
11:12:07 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::Providing his Andorian's brief tricorder scan shows no booby traps or the like, McKnight and his men move on this new room, only to find...um...that's T'Kirr's job.::
11:13:36 PM TKirr: ACTION> The away team enters a nondescript laboratory room with records galore.
11:14:49 PM TKirr: Admiral, I've found Busard's tranceiver bot.
11:15:20 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::As the scan was being done, Carre would note that something was moving in her pocket. The little cube with legs and semi-googly eyes is crawling up her jacket.::
11:15:57 PM TKirr: It's on the planet. ::looks up at Ian:: Carre must have it.
11:16:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::walks around to look at her console:: Percy's robots come in handy.
11:17:23 PM TKirr: ::points out the blip to him:: It's faint, and... well if this is correct, several hundred meters under the surface.
11:17:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Can we transport directly there?
11:18:15 PM MajDougMcKnight: Okay, let's do it by the numbers. Thar, run all this stuff through a translation program. See what we can find. Katsumoto, we'll look for a transporter, hidden compartments, the works.
11:18:30 PM TKirr: No, but there's a cavern here... ::moves her finger to another spot:: ...that's clear enough for us to reach.
11:18:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Contact Major McKnight and brief him, have him stand by for transport down there.
11:19:16 PM TKirr: +AT+ T'Kirr to McKnight.
11:20:00 PM MajDougMcKnight: +T'Kirr+ Go ahead, Commander.
11:20:39 PM DrRoxanneCarre: I detect some anomolyic radiation.
11:21:13 PM TKirr: +McKnight+ Major, we have the likely location of Dr. Carre. The closest beamdown is several hundred meters off in an underground cavern.
11:21:56 PM MajDougMcKnight: ::The little robot perches itself on Dr. Carre's shoulder, looking at what she's doing with apparent great interest. And making a little sound not unlike "Squee".::
11:22:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> ::sees the robot:: What is that?!
11:23:00 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Hmmm...a pet I think
11:23:05 PM MajDougMcKnight: Robot> ::Is scared by the raised voice, pops back into legless cube form with an "ee!"::
11:24:05 PM MajDougMcKnight: +T'Kirr+ Do we have any idea of layout around her position?
11:25:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> ::eyes the robot distrustfully:: You think.
11:25:39 PM TKirr: +McKnight+ You will have to make your way downward, out of proper sensor range. I'm assuming you'll want to return to gear up for possible climbing.
11:25:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> It will betray us, but that's probably inevitable anyway.
11:26:34 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Betray you? How?
11:27:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> I am no fool. It's obviously a bug to track your position.
11:28:46 PM DrRoxanneCarre: No, I'm pretty sure its a pet. A mechanical pet but still, a pet.
11:29:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> Please, continue working.
11:29:30 PM MajDougMcKnight: +T'Kirr+ Ah, one of those, is it? Alright, we'll be returning immediately. However, I'd suggest you dispatch reinforcements to hold this place. We haven't had time to determine what involvement the lab assistants down here had in
11:29:56 PM MajDougMcKnight: the kidnapping, if any. Also, a science team would be a good idea. We've found what appears to be some sort of records room.
11:30:53 PM TKirr: +McKnight+ Understood, I'll arrange it.
11:32:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::steps back around to his chair and sits down::
11:32:07 PM MajDougMcKnight: Robot> ::After a moment, pops its legs and eyes back out to continue watching Carre work::
11:33:03 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *puts the pet in her pocket*
11:33:12 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *mumbles*
11:33:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
11:33:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
11:33:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
11:34:15 PM TKirr: ::pauses::
11:35:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Alright, next week we get to see if Carre makes it back alive!
11:35:32 PM MajDougMcKnight: R: Hoo...ray? :-P
11:35:38 PM DrRoxanneCarre: I htink the pet saves her butt...since y'all left her there.
11:36:05 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Give that cube a medal!
11:36:27 PM MajDougMcKnight: But the medal might weigh it down so it can't move!
11:36:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hm, true.
11:36:52 PM TKirr: Ah well, if you hadn't have been left, everybody woulda been kidnapped anyways.
11:37:09 PM TKirr: Then who woulda saved you? =/
11:37:24 PM MajDougMcKnight: Shelev?
11:37:26 PM VAdm Blackthorne: You know, that's a good point.
11:38:28 PM TKirr: I don't think Ian and Harper woulda figured out the transponder signal without Percy. >_>
11:38:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Probably not, we r dum
11:39:04 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Hmmm...I gotta run see you next week. :D
11:39:15 PM TKirr: Thanks, Carre, see you then. =)
11:39:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Later Doc!
11:39:22 PM MajDougMcKnight: Later Carre!
11:39:25 PM TKirr: Look for a background log later this week.
11:39:54 PM TKirr: Prolly Saturday
11:40:04 PM DrRoxanneCarre: okay, thanks
11:40:06 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Check your NPCs on the website!
11:40:18 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Also T'Kirr, give Logan a first name already
11:40:31 PM TKirr: Right
11:40:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Right Logan. Nah
11:40:43 PM TKirr: lol
11:41:56 PM TKirr: zomg I'm tired
11:42:04 PM TKirr: Night you two... err, three.
11:42:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Night!
