10:32:11 PM ColDougMcKnight: R: Uh...ma'am? ::Follows her gaze to the door:: Is there something wrong with the Admiral?

10:32:36 PM TKirr: ::suddenly notices Percy and the PADD in her hand, and becomes even more confused when she feels like none of it matters::

10:32:52 PM TKirr: The Admiral?

10:33:05 PM TKirr: ::looks up at the door again:: Something wrong?  What's wrong with him?

10:33:19 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: Enters and sees Jack behind the counter polishing glasses, heads toward an empty seat ::

10:33:50 PM TKirr: ((Does the comm go through to anyone?))

10:34:21 PM DrRoxanneCarre: I'd love a double fudge chocolate sundae, heavy on the fudge...

10:34:26 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ((No because he can't say who to send it to))

10:34:33 PM TKirr: ((Right))

10:35:00 PM ColDougMcKnight: R: ::Looks to the door, then back at her:: Uh...I'll just...see if Admiral Blackthorne wants to have a look at this diagnostic, then. ::Provided she's not blocked, Percy will proceed to head towards the FO door and ring the chime.::

10:36:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::staring at the still-lit cigar, starting to lose the ability to breathe::

10:37:01 PM DrRoxanneCarre: It wont help the fit of my uniform but I'm hoping for a mental adjustment.

10:37:19 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> Aren't you also the counselor?

10:37:35 PM TKirr: ::slips through the doors as soon as they slip open to find Blackthorne on the floor, Percy close behind::

10:38:18 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jack> Enjoy, then.

10:38:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::gasping for air, looks up at them::

10:40:15 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::just fights for breath, can't reply::

10:40:15 PM ColDougMcKnight: ::By this point, McKnight can hardly fail to have noticed the commotion, and so he too joins the swiftly growing crowd, gently but hurriedly shouldering his way past if necessary::  What the hell is going on in here?

10:43:14 PM ColDougMcKnight: ::Looks highly worriedly at McKnight:: I don't think he can breathe. Do you know of any emergency medical kits that might have oxygen masks?

10:44:13 PM ColDougMcKnight: ::Nods::  Panel under science station two.  Not that we can be sure that'll help without...tongs.  Do you have any on you?  Pincers, a probe of any kind?

10:44:21 PM TKirr: ::pants shallowly with frustration, trying to think but finding it difficult::

10:45:23 PM TKirr: Ian! ::alarmed as he goes limp::

10:45:54 PM TKirr: ::looks up, noticing with a bit of surprise the crowd of officers:: We've got to get him to Sickbay!

10:47:41 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::shimmers out of T'Kirr's arms and appears in sickbay, not breathing::

10:48:05 PM TKirr: ::stares at the blank spot::

10:48:10 PM ColDougMcKnight: ::McKnight, having already heard the call for the med team, thus the not helping with Blackthorne, takes hold of the cigar with the pliers in one hand, tapping his comm badge with the other::

10:48:37 PM TKirr: MedTeam> ::returns to Sickbay::

10:48:40 PM ColDougMcKnight: +Sickbay+ Sickbay, McKnight here.  Exercise caution.  We have reason to suspect some sort of toxin is in his system.

10:49:10 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: appears in Sickbay sees Blackthorne :: Crap! Computer emergency site to site transport Nolan to Sickbay.

10:49:46 PM TKirr: Nolan> ::arrives in Sickbay and finds Ian unconscious on a biobed and Carre next to him::

10:49:55 PM TKirr: Nolan> What's this about a toxin?

10:50:15 PM ColDougMcKnight: R: ::Returns to the FO with an oxygen mask to find the admiral gone, but is relieved nonetheless. She then looks up at the others silently, and steps aside to let T'Kirr inevitably pass her.::

10:50:36 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: checks out Ian, puts a breathing apparatus on to assist respiration ::

10:50:54 PM TKirr: ::rushes forward and administers a hypo::

10:54:04 PM ColDougMcKnight: ::Taps his comm badge, staring after the other two::  +Transporter guy+ McKnight to transporter room 1.  Require immediate site to site transport to sickbay.  I've got something the doctors will want to see immediately.

10:54:40 PM TKirr: ACTION> ::trumping the comm call, the transporter beam picks McKnight up and deposits him into Sickbay::

10:55:30 PM ColDougMcKnight: ::As he materialiazes::  Because the two things that stood out when we entered were a gasping Blackthorne, and a still smoking cigar.  And this seems a little fast for emphezema.  Speaking of which, we should get this in a

10:56:13 PM TKirr: Harper, you have the Bridge! ::enters TL with Percy, not waiting for an acknowledgement:: Deck fifteen!

10:57:21 PM TKirr: ::paces the small interior of the lift, Percy flattened to the wall to avoid her::

10:58:03 PM TKirr: What's happening to him?  Why can he suddenly not breathe?

10:58:05 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::not breathing even with the mask, heart starting to fail::

10:58:27 PM TKirr: Nolan> Cardio functions failing!

10:59:23 PM ColDougMcKnight: R: I heard McKnight say something about a toxin. ::Flattens accordingly from the pacing::

11:06:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::reaches for the mask::

11:06:32 PM DrRoxanneCarre: It appears you've been poisoned by a toxin of some sort. Any idea where that came from?
