9:57:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Now wait a minute, wasn't Case Dan's character? :V
9:58:03 PM Jusstin Case: Nooo idea. He predates me. :-)
9:58:16 PM Jusstin Case: Good to see you again.

10:01:15 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::starts to bleed out his ear::
10:01:16 PM Charity Suite: ( Indeed)
10:01:23 PM TKirr: lol
10:01:36 PM Charity Suite: (However, he loves me, and will forgive me. You, my friend, are SOL) ;-)
10:01:43 PM Jusstin Case: Meh.
10:01:45 PM TKirr: Long time no see. =)
10:02:12 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Don't make me get the ping pong paddle out.)
10:02:24 PM Charity Suite: It's wonderful of you to have me here!
10:02:33 PM Charity Suite: I promise to try and remember everything. :-)
10:02:34 PM TKirr: It's wonderful for you to be here! =)
10:02:53 PM TKirr: Btw all Starfleet graduates know how to communicate efficiently. >_>
10:02:54 PM Charity Suite: However, Ian's fate is in my hands.
10:02:59 PM Charity Suite: Mwahahahahaaaaa
10:03:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::dies::
10:03:16 PM LtCmdrBusard: Well, shit.
10:03:23 PM LtCmdrBusard: No complex storyline for US then
10:03:37 PM Charity Suite: ::looks at the pillow in her hand, then down to Ian's face, then back to the pillow::
10:03:45 PM Jusstin Case: ::raises an eyebrow::
10:03:48 PM Jusstin Case: What ... are you thinking?
10:04:23 PM TKirr: He's as good as dead, anyway.
10:04:34 PM Charity Suite: Excellent. Can I have his room?
10:04:34 PM TKirr: Didn't you get that vibe from my log? Pfft.
10:05:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Flee! It's the Colonel, and I don't mean Sanders!
10:05:12 PM TKirr: Certainly you read it...? You won't get ANYTHING that's going on unless you read it!
10:05:21 PM TKirr: Just kidding. It's pointless, don't bother reading it.
10:05:21 PM Charity Suite: ::pondering the possibility of an accent::
10:05:23 PM ColDougMcKnight: He MIGHT have chicken.
10:05:29 PM Jusstin Case: Might he share?
10:05:33 PM LtCmdrBusard: You have chicken?
10:05:36 PM LtCmdrBusard: Gimme! :-P
10:05:37 PM TKirr: I can has chi--err, can I have some, too?
10:05:43 PM Jusstin Case: Kabicken?
10:06:05 PM ColDougMcKnight: If he's in a good mood.
10:06:06 PM LtCmdrBusard: I invoke my powers of girlfriendness to make you get chicken! That totally works, right?
10:06:07 PM Charity Suite: ACTION> Tonight's sin is brought to you by Crispy Chicken Strips
10:06:11 PM Jusstin Case: ...
10:06:13 PM Charity Suite: *sim
10:06:18 PM ColDougMcKnight: Unfortunately, he's often kinda pissy.
10:06:21 PM Jusstin Case: What the hell are *you* doing with that chicken?
10:06:24 PM Charity Suite: And so it begins well. ::sigh::
10:06:31 PM TKirr: No, you are NOT allowed to action anymore!
10:06:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: We'll give Doc Carre a few more minutes, she probably forgot that it's Tuesday again.
10:06:38 PM Charity Suite: But ... but ...
10:06:43 PM TKirr: No!
10:06:56 PM Charity Suite: (m) meanies ...
10:07:01 PM Jusstin Case: At least they're letting you keep the font....
10:07:07 PM Charity Suite: (m) I *know* how to action ...
10:07:10 PM TKirr: . . .
10:07:16 PM TKirr: Are we?
10:07:18 PM LtCmdrBusard: Or ARE they? Dun dun DUN!
10:07:24 PM LtCmdrBusard: ...Damnit T'kirr!
10:07:27 PM TKirr: <_<
10:07:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I heard the same people that poisoned Ian stole Charity's font.
10:07:35 PM Charity Suite: ACTION> A flash of light momentarily blinds the crew
10:07:42 PM Charity Suite: (w) Ooops
10:07:44 PM Jusstin Case: Oh, not this again.
10:08:07 PM Jusstin Case: The last time I saw one of those, I think I woke up in another woman's body.
10:08:17 PM LtCmdrBusard: Whuh oh.
10:08:18 PM Charity Suite: And you could only speak in questions.
10:08:29 PM Charity Suite: Wait ...
10:08:40 PM Charity Suite: What woman's body do you usually wake up in?
10:08:43 PM VAdm Blackthorne: And each week, he hoped the next leap, would be the leap home...
10:09:01 PM Jusstin Case: Oh, boy.
10:09:14 PM LtCmdrBusard: Unfortunately, it made him leap into Star Trek Enterprise, and there he stayed for all eternity.
10:09:19 PM LtCmdrBusard: In RUIN.
10:10:04 PM Jusstin Case: It could've been worse.
10:10:10 PM Jusstin Case: ... Somehow, I guess.
10:10:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: We're trying to track down the CMO, the show will start shortly.
10:10:55 PM LtCmdrBusard: Yay! In the meantime, I feel as though I am the only person who does not, in fact, know everyone else. So...hi people! I'm Rachel.
10:11:19 PM Jusstin Case: Hi, Rachel!
10:11:23 PM TKirr: Hey.. can these two come from the Hemingway?
10:11:30 PM ColDougMcKnight: Try not to judge by name association. She's cool. Really.
10:11:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I had planned on having a shuttle frantically chasing Atlantis.
10:11:38 PM Charity Suite: Ah.
10:11:39 PM Jusstin Case: ::snicker::
10:11:42 PM LtCmdrBusard: Yeah, not THAT Rachel.
10:11:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: QUIET
10:11:46 PM LtCmdrBusard: I've heard the stories.
10:11:48 PM Charity Suite: So, not *that* Rachel?
10:12:00 PM LtCmdrBusard: And am ashamed that she shares my name. But I am cool! Really!
10:12:05 PM Charity Suite: My floor is safe, then?
10:12:06 PM TKirr: She's actually Kiley
10:12:09 PM LtCmdrBusard: Oh dear god.
10:12:15 PM LtCmdrBusard: It was YOUR floor?
10:12:22 PM LtCmdrBusard: I'm so sorry, on behalf of all with my name.
10:12:22 PM Charity Suite: You heard about that?
10:12:29 PM LtCmdrBusard: Yeah, I'm Mike's girlfriend.
10:12:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: shutupshutupshutup
10:12:34 PM LtCmdrBusard: He tells me about these things.
10:13:00 PM Charity Suite: Wow.
10:13:05 PM Charity Suite: I *like* her.
10:13:07 PM TKirr: Wait, what am I missing?
10:13:14 PM Jusstin Case: Let the record show that I am not escalating the situation. :-)
10:13:17 PM Jusstin Case: (For a change)
10:13:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: The Doc is on her way!
10:13:35 PM LtCmdrBusard: yay!
10:13:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Again, she forgot that it's Tuesday.
10:13:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I told her I have a present for her.
10:13:56 PM Charity Suite: Hold your cheers. You haven't seen her in action, yet.
10:13:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::puts a bow on Charity's head::
10:14:00 PM Jusstin Case: n00bs?
10:14:10 PM Charity Suite: I r a presint?
10:14:54 PM LtCmdrBusard: Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention. If I am lax about posting tonight, it is because I am splitting my attention between sim and sawing pieces of wood. Stupid homework.
10:15:06 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Now that's one I've never heard before.
10:15:27 PM LtCmdrBusard: Theatrical Design. we get FUN projects in that one.
10:15:28 PM Charity Suite: ::snickers::
10:15:36 PM Charity Suite: He's ... "sawing wood"
10:15:37 PM ColDougMcKnight: And I am...playing a game that involves sacrificing cute animals.
10:15:44 PM ColDougMcKnight: You can make them commit seppuku.
10:15:46 PM Charity Suite: For "homework"
10:16:09 PM LtCmdrBusard: Yes yes.
10:16:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: There she is!
10:16:41 PM DrRoxanneCarre: >.>
10:16:47 PM DrRoxanneCarre: I fail so bad...
10:16:50 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :(
10:16:54 PM LtCmdrBusard: FAIL
10:16:59 PM Jusstin Case: Epically.
10:17:07 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Okay, first thing's first!
10:17:24 PM TKirr: What game is that, Mike?
10:17:30 PM TKirr: Erm, shutting up. o_O
10:17:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Please welcome the new Assistant medical officer, Ensign Charity Suite! And the new Chief Science officer, LtJG Jusssssstin Case!
10:17:48 PM Jusstin Case: ::salutes::
10:17:55 PM LtCmdrBusard: Wooo!
10:17:58 PM LtCmdrBusard: *claps*
10:17:58 PM Charity Suite: ::Miss America wave::
10:18:08 PM Charity Suite: ::er, salutes::
10:18:11 PM ColDougMcKnight: Hi, new guys, whom I totally don't know!
10:18:16 PM Jusstin Case: Or so you think. :-D
10:18:20 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Yay!
10:18:35 PM TKirr: Welcome! Thanks for taking my job!
10:18:48 PM Jusstin Case: ... My ... pleasure?
10:19:05 PM TKirr: You're screwed btw, 'cause you're always gonna have a Vulcan looking over your shoulder.
10:19:23 PM TKirr: You're two microns off!
10:19:27 PM Charity Suite: (m) At least he hopes he's ....
10:19:27 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *hopes Charity isnt too perky*
10:19:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Okay, for tonight, all of the n00bs are in a shuttle chasing Atlantis, including an NPC of mine I've been meaning to bring aboard.
10:19:29 PM TKirr: Wait, what species are you >_>
10:19:51 PM Jusstin Case: Shouldn't you buy me a drink, first?
10:20:03 PM VAdm Blackthorne: The actual mission brief is that Atlantis is on its way to rendezvous with the mercenary ship Hemingway.
10:20:03 PM LtCmdrBusard: I like this one!
10:20:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Admiral Blackthorne still lies comatose in sickbay, the victim of a poisoned cigar.
10:20:48 PM ColDougMcKnight: Toldja those things would kill you.
10:21:06 PM VAdm Blackthorne: The entire off the record meeting with the Hemingway is the start of a plan to find proof of the culprit behind the heinous crime!
10:21:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Questions? Comments? Snide remarks?
10:21:18 PM LtCmdrBusard: You suck!
10:21:20 PM Jusstin Case: (Plenty of that last thing.)
10:21:27 PM LtCmdrBusard: Also, how close to the Hemmingway are we?
10:21:36 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *pulls out lots of needles* Nope not a one...
10:21:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: 15 minutes or so, I'd guess.
10:21:52 PM LtCmdrBusard: Alrighty, thanks.
10:22:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Alrighty then
10:22:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

10:24:33 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *wondering if acupuncture would help or harm Ian*
10:24:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> Shuttle approaching in our wake, Captain.
10:24:40 PM TKirr: ((Omg too many people simming I can't keep up!))
10:25:20 PM Jusstin Case: # ::to nobody in particular:: What do you suppose the Atlantis will be like?

10:26:13 PM Charity Suite: >Damn, I have too many Hemingway references. Better save them for later. <
10:26:33 PM Jusstin Case: # Is that typical of the Atlantis, Lieutenant?
10:26:55 PM Jusstin Case: # I'm not really sure what to expect; sort of wet behind the ears, you know.

10:27:46 PM TKirr: Starfleet shuttlecraft, this is acting Captain T'Kirr of Atlantis.

10:27:56 PM ColDougMcKnight: ::Runs the obligatory tactical scan, making sure there's no...drunken pilot making a beeline for the bridge or anything.::
10:27:56 PM Charity Suite: # ::hears the com signal and looks up like there should be something out the window to see:: Are we there?

10:29:16 PM Jusstin Case: # Charmed, I'm sure. ::grins::
10:29:47 PM TKirr: Starfleet shuttlecraft, prepare to drop from warp and dock at Shuttlebay One.

10:30:57 PM Jusstin Case: # Oh, no; allow me!

10:32:20 PM Jusstin Case: # ::turns to Syvek:: I thought Vice Admiral Blackthorne commanded this ship?

10:33:07 PM Jusstin Case: # But, then ... who was that captain fellow on the com?
10:33:22 PM TKirr: ACTION> The shuttle has docked, and Atlantis jumps to warp as the shuttle's engines power, safely inside.
10:33:24 PM ColDougMcKnight: ::As ordered, a pair of suitably stoic marines stand waiting outside the hatch to receive the new arrivals.::
10:33:27 PM VAdm Blackthorne: # Syvek> Presumably the executive officer.

10:35:54 PM TKirr: ::stops, deciding she doesn't like this new habit and alights into the center seat that seems too big for her and snatches up a PADD::

10:39:27 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: eyes the tiny pet :: Did you want to keep watch here or page through toxin projections with me?
10:39:37 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Percy rises from her seat, noting that there was a shuttle to see to in the docking bay now. Unless T'Kirr objects, she would go make sure that's working as well as it possibly can.::

10:40:40 PM TKirr: ::notes Percy leaving and doesn't appear to object::

10:41:27 PM TKirr: ((Fine, I told you to create it.))

10:48:30 PM Jusstin Case: ::suppressing any number of chuckles::
10:48:31 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Looks at the straightening, then remembers said pips. Still, she smiles at the two before looking curiously at what is causing all this ruckus.::
10:48:47 PM TKirr: ::looks up from her PADD, wondering what's taking the noobs so long::

10:54:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::thweep::
10:54:31 PM ColDougMcKnight: McGann> Yes, I can see how you thought this would calm her down. A paragon of honesty AND common sense. Look, Holkins will personally take her down to your quarters right now. He's trained to face
10:54:45 PM ColDougMcKnight: down life threatening situations on a daily basis. I just need you people to come with me, now.
10:55:17 PM TKirr: Hemingway, this is acting Captain T'Kirr of Atlantis.
10:55:49 PM Charity Suite: ::sighs and looks at Holkins:: Okie dokie. Ah'll be seein' you later in SickBay. Sorry 'bout th' incomin' scratches. ::hands over the growling bag::

10:57:02 PM ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> Moments later, Gerard appears on screen, hands behind his back, for the moment hiding the gold embroidery on his dark green uniform:: Well...either Star Fleet's a lot more generous with the promotions than I remember,
10:57:09 PM ColDougMcKnight: or this isn't a social call.

11:00:09 PM ColDougMcKnight: Gerard> ::Imitates the brow perking:: How sensitive?
11:00:35 PM Jusstin Case: ((Nice thing about being the sci guy, you basically pull everything out of your butt. :-D ))
11:00:42 PM TKirr: Sensitive enough that we shouldn't discuss it over even a secure comm. Are you free for dinner?
11:00:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ((Make sure you wash those things first!))
11:01:03 PM TKirr: ((lol Gem))
11:03:03 PM Jusstin Case: ::to McGann:: So ... where are we going?
11:03:10 PM ColDougMcKnight: Gerard> If you think Blackthorne won't mind...for a friend of Doug's, always. I just need to finish supervision of this exercise. Shall we say 1900?
11:03:48 PM ColDougMcKnight: McGann> Where to the lifts go when YOU ask for the bridge, sir?
11:04:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Syvek> Waste management, clearly.
11:04:04 PM TKirr: ::nods to Gerard's image:: I look forward to seeing you in person.
11:04:20 PM ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> Speaking of which...SWISH. Bridge! Huzzah!

11:31:28 PM TKirr: Great to have you both. =) I'll see you next week, and Case on Fri/Sat for a log.
11:31:42 PM Charity Suite: Excellent fun!

11:34:09 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Night guys, welcome aboard.
11:34:15 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Night Doc
11:34:16 PM Charity Suite: How do I make a shortcut for the room?
11:34:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I think the link to the room on the website still works, but I just join manually
11:34:48 PM Charity Suite: Okay, then. No biggie.
11:35:12 PM Jusstin Case: My, my, my. Quite the reunion of sorts, eh?
11:35:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: This is awesome :)
11:35:52 PM Charity Suite: It really is. Thanks again, Jason.
11:36:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Thank you both, it's really good to have you here. :)
11:36:19 PM Jusstin Case: Fo' sho'.

11:36:49 PM Jusstin Case: Logs ... yes, I remember those.
11:36:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Oh, as for logs, they're posted as Pages in the google group
11:37:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: When you make a new Page, you have the option to email everyone. Grab me if it's odd.
11:37:39 PM Jusstin Case: I'll be keeping my hands to myself.
11:37:39 PM Charity Suite: Grabbing you *would* be odd ...
11:37:45 PM VAdm Blackthorne: /facepalm
11:37:49 PM Charity Suite: My brain.
11:38:04 PM Jusstin Case: Hehe.
11:38:05 PM Charity Suite: Mine.

11:39:00 PM Jusstin Case: Have I missed much in the past two years?
11:39:20 PM VAdm Blackthorne: We've just been truckin' along.
11:40:22 PM Jusstin Case: Nice. Trek has been conspicuously absent from my life lately; I've got a lot of catch-up reading to do.
11:40:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: It's not like there's much happening in the canonical Trek world.
11:41:30 PM ColDougMcKnight: Let's just hope the movie's good.
11:41:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Oh yeah.
11:41:46 PM ColDougMcKnight: No Enterprise crash landing on a creepy tropical island.
11:41:54 PM Jusstin Case: Oh, lord.
11:42:25 PM LtCmdrBusard: Was that the weird epidemic one? Or is this one I haven't heard about yet?
11:42:39 PM Jusstin Case: "Lost" reference, I think.
11:42:42 PM Jusstin Case: But, really? Harold, from "Harold and Kumar," as Mr. Sulu?
11:42:51 PM Jusstin Case: And Winona Ryder as Amanda?
11:43:10 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I'm going in with an open mind and high hopes.
11:43:55 PM LtCmdrBusard: I hope it's closer to Insurrection quality, and less like Nemesis.
11:44:09 PM Jusstin Case: I do not recognize the existence of "Nemesis."
11:44:20 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I liked it :(
11:44:24 PM ColDougMcKnight: Ditto.
11:44:38 PM Jusstin Case: Yeah, but we've had this discussion before, haven't we, guys? :-)
11:44:50 PM ColDougMcKnight: Yes, I imagine we have once or twice.
11:44:54 PM LtCmdrBusard: I never finished it, but the Picard clone annoyed me a little.
11:44:56 PM LtCmdrBusard: Oh well.
11:44:57 PM Jusstin Case: Wasn't it a CPA journal story at one point?
11:45:09 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Oh, probably.
11:46:06 PM Jusstin Case: Well, anyway, I best be going. Work 'n' such come early tomorrow.
