9:44:30 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Nice screen name, Mike :)

9:44:55 PM ColDougMcKnight: He would thank you, but he's being cute on the other side of the room right now. :-P

9:45:14 PM ColDougMcKnight: On a related note, guess who's computer hasn't gotten fixed yet?

9:46:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: You people are trying to kill me with confusion, aren't you?

9:46:27 PM ColDougMcKnight: ...Mehbeh.

10:03:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Our Vulcan is unresponsive

10:05:02 PM ColDougMcKnight: R: Booo!

10:05:24 PM ColDougMcKnight: Perhaps Ian just isn't imaginative enough.

10:05:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ...

10:05:38 PM ColDougMcKnight: Um...that was totally Rachel.

10:05:43 PM ColDougMcKnight: R: LIES!

10:05:49 PM ColDougMcKnight: R: Also, bow chicka wow wow!

10:06:09 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I'm gonna airlock someone tonight.

10:06:24 PM ColDougMcKnight: R: It's T'Kirr, right?

10:06:30 PM ColDougMcKnight: R: :-D

10:06:40 PM ColDougMcKnight: R: WHOOPS

10:06:45 PM VAdm Blackthorne: HI TKIRR

10:07:10 PM TKirr: Hey, was finishing a CSI ep

10:07:49 PM TKirr: Have any of you been to Epcot?  Turtle Talk is the sweetest thing ever

10:07:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: In 1997 :v

10:08:02 PM ColDougMcKnight: R: Alas, no.

10:08:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Er, 96

10:08:15 PM TKirr: Well if you can pay to come and stay, I get you in

10:08:25 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Wait...who are you killing?

10:08:26 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I'm still unemployed!

10:08:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Someone!

10:08:58 PM DrRoxanneCarre: I say that jesren jerk! Lemme at him with my laser scapel!!!

10:09:08 PM TKirr: !

10:09:15 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Oh man, someone has rage issues.

10:09:25 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Raid cancelled due to lag!

10:09:27 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Okay, let's get going!

10:09:31 PM DrRoxanneCarre: I need to kills stuff!

10:09:45 PM TKirr: Pfft cancelled due to a healer's sim!

10:09:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: We can AV after the sim.

10:09:54 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Yay!

10:10:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Okay, tonight we're wrapping up the issues with the Ren and Shudouren.

10:10:18 PM DrRoxanneCarre: ((Actually we were have like 5 seconds of no movement then all damage applied. :( ))

10:10:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: T'Kirr and Busard are working on a way to scrub the radiation from the atmosphere, while Carre works to help cure the sick Shudouren.

10:10:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: McKnight is busy basking in the light of his new silver oak leaves.

10:11:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Questions?

10:11:34 PM ColDougMcKnight: R: Why is the rum gone?

10:11:42 PM DrRoxanneCarre: I can use the laser scapel right?

10:11:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Any relevant questions?

10:12:12 PM DrRoxanneCarre: What is the velocity of an unladen european swallow?

10:18:13 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Hello Harper, come to stare at the pris...errr...patient?

10:18:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> No, the Admiral ordered me to have a flight physical when he made me CAG.

10:18:50 PM TKirr: +Engineering+ T'Kirr to Busard.

10:18:52 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> Then you died, and then you didn't, so I haven't had it yet.

10:19:36 PM ColDougMcKnight: +T'Kirr+ Busard here.

10:19:54 PM TKirr: +Busard+ What's your status?

10:21:45 PM ColDougMcKnight: +T'Kirr+ Nearly done here, ma'am. Just need to grab a couple more engineers before we head down planetside.

10:21:46 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: looks at the controlled chaos in sickbay :: We're rather pressed at the moment, I could probably fit you in in the next 48 hours or so. We've got a short time span to keep that :: points toward Jesren :: alive and um...wiggling.

10:22:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> He'll airlock me.

10:23:43 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Probably.

10:24:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> You sure you don't need a break from that?

10:24:55 PM DrRoxanneCarre: I dont mind, if you dont mind stripping in front of it.

10:25:10 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: sighs :: Look, I'll get him to give you a bit of leeway.

10:25:28 PM TKirr: +Busard+ Acknowledged.  I've pinpointed the heaviest source, along with secondary locations over the minimum levels you outlined.  My scans of the affected areas have been condensed.  It's ready for you.

10:25:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::blinks:: Thank you, doctor.

10:26:52 PM DrRoxanneCarre: If you insist I can do it now. :: whispers; :: Jesren does have some sort of facination with human women though.

10:27:21 PM ColDougMcKnight: +T'Kirr+ Great. I'm connecting the filtration devices to the main access console now. ::Smiles, relieved, as the corresponding light turns on to signify a successful connection:: Ready to activate it on your mark.

10:27:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::smirks:: Sorry to disappoint him, but I'm Risan.

10:28:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> ::rolls his eyes:: I'm androgynous in my natural form...

10:28:30 PM ColDougMcKnight: (*activate them)

10:28:32 PM TKirr: +Busard+ Starting the process.

10:28:50 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Yes, well. I'm not sure he's going to care about the subtle differences.

10:29:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> I'll just come back later if you clear it with the Admiral.

10:29:44 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Sure, that would probably be best. :: smiles, and slurps more coffee ::

10:30:25 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: writes a quick note on her medipad for Blackthorne's review ::

10:31:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::walks out of sickbay, hoping she doesn't get airlocked::

10:32:06 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: pulls her sweater tighter around herself and resumes reviewing test results ::

10:33:37 PM TKirr: ACTION> Atlantis' deflector begins its work on Milyax's early warp radiation problem, a slow process unnoticed by most, but the sensitive Shudouren everywhere begin to breathe easier.

10:34:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::arrives on the bridge and relieves the HOps officer::

10:34:43 PM TKirr: +Busard+ It's working.  Give it a couple years with some updated facilities and the crust will be Meson-free.

10:34:59 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::notes the deflector through the window::

10:35:22 PM TKirr: Deflector> ::blorb... blorb...::

10:35:54 PM ColDougMcKnight: ::Smiles at the success:: +T'Kirr+ I imagine Jesren's people will be thankful for that. Or indifferent, but alive.

10:36:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ian> ::walks out onto the bridge:: Are we successful?

10:37:27 PM TKirr: ::opens her mouth, then stops when the door swishes open:: I was just about to call you.  The process is working.  I suggest we contact the Mecca.

10:37:41 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: writes some notes and attaches them to jesren's file; walks over to the force field controller and adjusts some settings ::

10:37:43 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods:: Do it.

10:37:58 PM TKirr: ::nods and sends the transmission out::

10:38:15 PM TKirr: They're responding.

10:38:30 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: fills a couple of hypos and loads them into the air dispersion system for the machine ::

10:39:09 PM VAdm Blackthorne: On screen.

10:39:30 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Well Jesren, you'll either be feeling better shortly or a puddle of goo. Shouldn't be long before we find out which.

10:39:54 PM TKirr: Uiren> ::blinks as soon as he's on the screen, a curious and frustrated look on his face:: Well?  I mean, how can I help you, Admiral?

10:39:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> I'm normally a puddle of goo.

10:40:19 PM ColDougMcKnight: Somewhere in the back> He's a Founder!  Shoot him!

10:40:24 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Yes, but I'm thinking more along the lines of a non-moving puddle.

10:40:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Overseer. You'll be pleased to know that we have been successful in beginning to clean your atmosphere of the radiation affecting the Shudouren.

10:41:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> Come now, doctor.

10:41:17 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: grins wickedly ::

10:41:32 PM TKirr: Uiren> ::scowls:: Shudouren?  There's no such thing!

10:42:06 PM VAdm Blackthorne: The one in my sickbay would prove otherwise. Your primitive warp technology was poisoning them. The deaths were a ploy to attract our help.

10:42:38 PM TKirr: Uiren> ::arches an eyebrow, looking unsure if he's willing to believe what he's hearing::

10:43:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Commander, send down some of the data Dr. Carre has gathered.

10:43:34 PM TKirr: ::makes quick work of the data::

10:43:46 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: monitors the medi-stats ::

10:44:11 PM TKirr: Uiren> ::turns, the said data no doubt grabbing his attention.  After a few moments, his eyes go wide, and he looks back up at the screen in awe:: Shudouren...?

10:44:40 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods:: They're very real. Jesren is one of them.

10:44:49 PM TKirr: Uiren> What?!

10:45:26 PM VAdm Blackthorne: A Shudouren is taking the form of a Ren called Jesren, at any rate. They're amorphous changelings that live deep in your planet's crust.

10:47:06 PM TKirr: Uiren> Jesren... I'd known him for years.  That means... the real Jesren is... dead?  ::starts to pace in deep thought, then focuses back on the Atlantis bridge:: This is most... insightful.  Thank you for your help.

10:47:11 PM TKirr: Uiren> There is much to do... no one's gonna believe this.

10:47:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: There's more, Overseer. We'll be providing upgrades to your technology so that you won't be killing the Shudouren anymore.

10:48:08 PM DrRoxanneCarre: I'll be back shortly, you should start feeling something soon. :: heads to the corner for more coffee ::

10:48:18 PM TKirr: ::pipes up:: They're standing by to depart for the surface, at your consent.

10:49:26 PM TKirr: Uiren> ::for the first time since Atlantis' arrival, beams a fully genuine smile:: This is such wonderful news, Admiral!  Thank you... thank you so much.

10:49:48 PM TKirr: Uiren> The mysterious deaths will stop.  The Federation has come through for us.

10:50:18 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::smiles:: We're here to help. Take care and try to keep in contact with the Shudouren so you can work together.

10:50:57 PM TKirr: Uiren> ::stares off again:: Contact with the Shudouren... this will change our very existence!  Please, send your teams.  We await your arrival!

10:51:35 PM ColDougMcKnight: ::Meanwhile, the adorable little robot squirms around a little in Carre's pocket::

10:51:43 PM VAdm Blackthorne: The upgrades are on their way. Good luck, Overseer. Atlantis out.

10:52:24 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: pulls open her pocket so the little guy can get out :: Hello there, have a nice nap?

10:52:44 PM TKirr: ::eyes Ian::

10:53:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::nods::

10:53:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Carre+ Blackthorne to Carre.

10:53:45 PM ColDougMcKnight: ::Adorable robot crawls up to Carre's shoulder, before making affirmative squeaks and whirs.::

10:54:11 PM DrRoxanneCarre: +Blackthorne+Carre here.

10:54:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Carre+ Doctor, have you managed to work out how to cure the Shudouren?

10:55:22 PM DrRoxanneCarre: +Blackthorne+Should know here shortly, I've started a treatment for Jesren.

10:55:41 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren>  I'm feeling somewhat better, actually.

10:56:52 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: wanders toward the field, notes a few sparkly bubble on Jesren's surface :: +Blackthorne+ Looks like the treatment is working, the patient reports an improvement.

10:57:43 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: writes some notes on the medi-pad ::

10:58:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Carre+ Good. Replicate as many doses as Jesren believes his people need, and ready them for transport.

10:59:33 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Well, Jesren, it looks like the radiation is, quite literally, bubbling out of your system.

10:59:57 PM DrRoxanneCarre: +Blackthorne+ Will do, Carre out.

11:00:39 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Now, how many of you are there so we can ship down enough for the rest of your people.

11:01:26 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: writes more on the medi-pad ::

11:02:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: There are a few million of us, but the last count of the sick was at around two hundred fifty thousand.

11:02:38 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> ^^ If you can't produce that much, I'm sure I can get Uiren's help with more.

11:03:18 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Alright, I'll note that on the replication order and include the formula.

11:04:07 PM TKirr: ACTION> Engineers are dispatched to the surface of Milyax and arrange for upgrades to be delivered from the closest Federation warp plant construction depot, along with a team of specialists.

11:04:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> Thank you, doctor. And again, I'm sorry for the circumstances.

11:04:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +McKnight+ Blackthorne to McKnight.

11:05:35 PM ColDougMcKnight: ::Has switched to beer by this point:: +Blackthorne+ Go ahead, sir.

11:06:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +McKnight+ Colonel, I believe we are ready to return Jesren to the surface.

11:07:28 PM ColDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ Do we have reason to believe he'll be cooperative?

11:08:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +McKnight+ Being that Dr. Carre has cured him, I believe so.

11:09:20 PM DrRoxanneCarre: I suggest if you decide you need another hostage you might want to consider being a bit nicer.

11:09:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::checking power allocations to the warp engines, figuring they're leaving soon::

11:10:54 PM ColDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ Very well, sir.  I'll be in transporter room one with whoever's at the top of the duty roster in...5 minutes?

11:11:16 PM ColDougMcKnight: ::Can in fact get there in two, but figures a few minutes to clear his head of the merriment can't hurt::

11:11:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +McKnight+ Very well, Colonel. Blackthorne out.

11:12:33 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: writes formula and delivery method on the medi-pad sends it for replication and surface delivery ::

11:13:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Commander, I'll be seeing off our guest. You have the bridge.

11:13:55 PM TKirr: ::nods::

11:14:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::enters TL:: Sickbay.

11:15:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::glad he didn't ask about her flight readiness physical::

11:15:18 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::arrives in sickbay:: All ready to go, Jesren?

11:15:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> Yes, and thank you.

11:15:40 PM TKirr: Nolan> ::bumps into Ian as he enters, going the other way burdened by a big crate::

11:16:08 PM ColDougMcKnight: ::And five minutes later, McKnight will indeed be waiting to receive custody from the marines on duty in sickbay with...Corporal LaMorte.  We can get some irony going with him.  Kinda like the Rio Grande.::

11:16:09 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Excuse me, doctor.

11:16:27 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::turns to Carre:: Our patient is fit to travel?

11:16:42 PM TKirr: Nolan> ::smiles and grunts as he hurries into the corridor with his load::

11:16:43 PM DrRoxanneCarre: As far as I can tell, hes in sparkling heath.

11:17:15 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *health (obviously my l key is not working tonight)

11:17:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Heath bar!)

11:24:47 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Tech> Ready.

11:24:51 PM TKirr: Nolan> ::sucks in a breath at the mention of caves::

11:25:05 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jesren> Thank you, Admiral.

11:25:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Good luck to your people. Just stay away from the kidnappings in the future. ::smirks::
