9:57:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hey Gem :)

9:59:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hey Gem. :)

9:59:15 PM Jusstin Case: Hello ... everybody?

10:00:06 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hiya Rob

10:00:45 PM Jusstin Case: Where is everyone?

10:00:51 PM Jusstin Case: (Do I have bad breath?)

10:00:58 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (yes_

10:01:53 PM Jusstin Case: Dang.

10:02:14 PM Charity Suite: ::checks::

10:02:25 PM Charity Suite: Hmm.  Nope.  Minty fresh.

10:03:32 PM Jusstin Case: Hehehe.

10:03:49 PM VAdm Blackthorne: AFK one sec while people file in

10:04:05 PM Charity Suite: Seeeeeee them tumble around .....

10:05:33 PM Jusstin Case: Shh! Here he comes!

10:06:05 PM ColDougMcKnight: I'm totally frowning in scary fashion.

10:06:06 PM Charity Suite: Pleeeedging their love to the ground ....

10:06:16 PM LtCmdrBusard: ...Why are you frowning?

10:06:19 PM LtCmdrBusard: What what what?

10:06:21 PM Charity Suite: Looooonely but free I'll be fooooound ...

10:06:28 PM Jusstin Case: Driiifting off with the tumbling tumble weeds?

10:06:35 PM Charity Suite: Driiiiifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds ...

10:06:42 PM Charity Suite: ::grins at Jusstin::

10:06:53 PM Jusstin Case: I was close, right? ::winks::

10:07:00 PM Jusstin Case: For a yankee.

10:08:34 PM ColDougMcKnight: So...any word from T'Kirr and the good doctor?

10:08:44 PM Jusstin Case: Good doctor?

10:08:45 PM Charity Suite: (Why I am singing SOns of the Pioneers is beyond me.  They were even before my time.)

10:09:03 PM Charity Suite: ::knows they aren't talking about her::

10:09:20 PM Jusstin Case: I'm glad to hear my breath wasn't keeping anybody away.

10:09:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hey folks that filed in :)

10:09:35 PM Jusstin Case: Ian said it was awful, but Charity checked it for me.

10:09:40 PM LtCmdrBusard: Filed? I thought we broke down the door and stormed in!

10:09:41 PM Jusstin Case: ... I forget what happened after that.

10:09:52 PM Charity Suite: ::whistles::

10:10:09 PM Jusstin Case: Some worlds may have been rocked.

10:10:26 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I'm bothering Carre out of WoW.

10:10:29 PM LtCmdrBusard: Were they also rolled?

10:10:37 PM Charity Suite: We built this city!


10:10:48 PM Jusstin Case: Oh, no.

10:10:51 PM Charity Suite: We built this city on rock and roll ...

10:10:55 PM Charity Suite: ::brilliant grin::

10:10:57 PM LtCmdrBusard: :-D

10:11:28 PM Charity Suite: I thought she played a grown-up game?

10:11:33 PM Charity Suite: Like EQ2?

10:11:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: We do. :)

10:11:42 PM Charity Suite: ::cheesy smile::

10:11:56 PM LtCmdrBusard: ...I play Fable II.

10:12:00 PM LtCmdrBusard: Is that grown-up?

10:12:06 PM Charity Suite: Really?  I tried it. 

10:12:32 PM LtCmdrBusard: It IS a good game.

10:12:46 PM Jusstin Case: But Atlantis is the best game of all, of course.

10:13:03 PM Charity Suite: ::wipes the ehd of Jusstin's nose::

10:13:11 PM LtCmdrBusard: Oh! *cough* Right! Of course what was I thinking.

10:13:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Oh my that was blatant.

10:13:19 PM Charity Suite: Somethin' on there, sugah.

10:13:26 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Go stand in the corner.

10:13:39 PM Jusstin Case: Hehehe.

10:13:43 PM Charity Suite: All I need is a miracle ...

10:13:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: OK, Carre is on the way in a few, same with T'Kirr.

10:13:56 PM LtCmdrBusard: Hooray!

10:13:58 PM ColDougMcKnight: Okie dokey.

10:13:59 PM Jusstin Case: Just a small town girrrrl ... !

10:14:09 PM Jusstin Case: Livin' in a *lonley* woorrrld ... !

10:14:15 PM Charity Suite: Wow, that would be a totally fun FoL sim ...

10:14:23 PM Jusstin Case: Song lyrics only.

10:14:26 PM Charity Suite: Yeah.

10:14:29 PM Jusstin Case: *Bad* song lyrics only!

10:14:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Are you saying Journey is bad?

10:14:38 PM Charity Suite: 80's song lyrics!

10:14:43 PM Jusstin Case: Journey is bad.

10:14:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: GET OUT.

10:14:50 PM Jusstin Case: (Same thing, Charity.)

10:15:00 PM Charity Suite: Journey is not bad.  Steve Perry had an amazing voice.

10:15:03 PM ColDougMcKnight: Um...I feel like Chicken Tonight.

10:15:11 PM Jusstin Case: Nah, I take that last one back. I like a lot of '80s music.

10:15:19 PM Jusstin Case: And perhaps Journey's not bad, but that one song *is* overplayed.

10:15:28 PM LtCmdrBusard: I vote David Bowie lyrics.

10:15:36 PM LtCmdrBusard: Exclusively from Labyrinth :-D

10:15:44 PM Charity Suite: It's a nice day for a ... white wedding ...

10:15:47 PM Jusstin Case: Yikes. There's the definition of esoteric.

10:15:49 PM Charity Suite: Oooo

10:15:58 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hiya T'Kirr

10:16:04 PM TKirr: Sorry guys, forgot what day it was. =X

10:16:04 PM ColDougMcKnight: Oh, dear God.  Now I just pictured some random ensign wandering into sickbay declaring that "I hurt myself today..."

10:16:10 PM VAdm Blackthorne: That's going around. :V

10:16:23 PM LtCmdrBusard: lmao

10:16:29 PM Charity Suite: How many AA's have you gotten?

10:16:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Carre generally has no idea what day of the week it is, I have to drag her out of WoW every week!

10:16:37 PM TKirr: 18 >_>

10:16:43 PM Charity Suite: Whoah!

10:17:00 PM Jusstin Case: Yikes.

10:17:15 PM Charity Suite: Gratz

10:17:21 PM TKirr: I got 5 days off, I went hard core =P

10:17:27 PM Charity Suite: No kidding!

10:17:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Wow.

10:17:38 PM Charity Suite: I've only gotten 9.

10:17:47 PM TKirr: I've got more than anyone else in my guild, if that helps.

10:18:06 PM Charity Suite: Heh, first step in getting help for a problem ...  ;-)

10:18:19 PM TKirr: Don't recall anyone mentioning any problems...

10:18:41 PM TKirr: I had a blast =P

10:18:48 PM TKirr: Pocket druid ftw

10:18:48 PM Charity Suite: I bet.  :-)

10:19:04 PM Charity Suite: What do you call a pocket druid?

10:19:11 PM Jusstin Case: Whatever she wants you to call it?

10:19:14 PM TKirr: . . . me?

10:19:30 PM TKirr: OH is this a joke?

10:19:36 PM Charity Suite: Well, I have a set of gloves that people call 'pocker druid' gloves.

10:19:49 PM Charity Suite: ... pocket

10:19:49 PM Jusstin Case: Gloves? ::eyebrow raise::

10:19:53 PM LtCmdrBusard: o.O

10:19:54 PM TKirr: I dunno...

10:19:58 PM VAdm Blackthorne: OK, let's go ahead and start without Carre.

10:20:07 PM Charity Suite: What's a pocket druid?

10:20:09 PM LtCmdrBusard: Argh! Mike sneak attacked me!

10:20:26 PM TKirr: A druid you fit in your pocket and take anywhere, basically your slave.

10:20:43 PM Charity Suite: You're a conjurer?

10:20:52 PM TKirr: No.. I'm the druid.

10:20:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: OK, so tonight we pick up right where we left off. Atlantis has a jagged gash in the secondary hull, and the deflector is damaged.

10:20:59 PM Charity Suite: A fae, then?

10:21:02 PM TKirr: <)<

10:21:13 PM Charity Suite: Whoops.  :;shuts up and switches dimensions::

10:21:15 PM TKirr: No, a cat.  Shh.

10:21:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Sickbay is overrun, we're missing people, and some decks are even in chaos! CHAOS I TELL YOU.

10:21:31 PM LtCmdrBusard: Mike: So the Orion ship has just warped away?

10:21:42 PM TKirr: Especially the dining hall... omg the waste.

10:22:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Questions? Comments? Snide remarks?

10:22:12 PM LtCmdrBusard: Also, Puddington is totally in the dining hall...maybe.

10:22:18 PM LtCmdrBusard: Your Mom!

10:22:20 PM Jusstin Case: Got plenty of that last one.

10:22:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Quiet, Journey-hater.

10:22:46 PM Jusstin Case: ::eye roll::

10:22:48 PM TKirr: I have a question.

10:22:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Yes?

10:22:53 PM TKirr: Can Ian wake up now?

10:22:56 PM ColDougMcKnight: Right, now that I've actually found the energy to walk 2 steps to my own computer, how about that Orion question?

10:23:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Nope!

10:23:05 PM TKirr: /sadface

10:23:13 PM Charity Suite: Good gods, he's a slacker.

10:23:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Yeah, he is.

10:23:42 PM TKirr: Are the Sharks in?

10:23:42 PM Jusstin Case: And he's beginning to smell a wee bit ripe, iffen you know what I mean.

10:23:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: No, the Sharks have formed up in CAP.

10:24:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (combat air patrol)

10:24:08 PM TKirr: Ah right you said that.

10:24:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: OK then,

10:24:33 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

10:24:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

10:24:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

10:24:54 PM Jusstin Case: ::at the science station::

10:24:57 PM TKirr: +Busard+ T'Kirr to Busard, report!

10:24:58 PM Charity Suite: ::pushes the hair out of her eyes and walks over to Table 4::  Next ...

10:25:06 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::watching the Mustangs form up:: +Sharks+ Sharks, call out.

10:25:07 PM Charity Suite: Ewww.

10:25:17 PM TKirr: ::looking murderous on the Bridge::

10:25:22 PM Jusstin Case: Captain, it was too late to stop the transport. Whoever it was, they're on that Orion ship now.

10:25:28 PM Jusstin Case: And that Orion ship is well on its way elsewhere.

10:25:32 PM Jusstin Case: ::frowns::

10:25:34 PM Charity Suite: ::cringes at the angle the hand is dangling from::

10:25:43 PM Charity Suite: That cain't feel good.

10:25:47 PM TKirr: ::nods to Science, not bothering to look at him::

10:26:17 PM ColDougMcKnight: ::Frowns as he looks up from his console::  We still have navigational sensors up and running properly.  Anyone care to take a guess where that ship's trajectory will take it?

10:26:26 PM Charity Suite: Ensign> ::white-faced, biting his bottom lip::

10:26:30 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::listening to the pilots rattle off as the planes form up::

10:26:34 PM LtCmdrBusard: +T'Kirr+ ::Panting as she pulls the last blast door closed:: The damaged hull section's been sealed off, but without more shields, it won't do any good!

10:26:48 PM Jusstin Case: Annnd ... from the Ops point of view, just about everything is broken to some extent.

10:26:51 PM ColDougMcKnight: (Oh, shit.  Right, I'm supposed to play a Shark.)

10:27:06 PM TKirr: +Busard+ Will it hold up in warp?

10:27:26 PM Charity Suite: Lemme see that fer a minnit.  ::gently gets a chillpack and gets it under the bizarre, misshapen appendage::

10:27:26 PM LtCmdrBusard: Sid> Crazy Horse, alive and well!

10:28:00 PM Charity Suite: ( Da-dum  Da-dum)

10:28:16 PM LtCmdrBusard: +T'Kirr+ I...I think so. If we can concentrate shields more around the hole, it should be alright, but for a limited amount of time.

10:28:22 PM Jusstin Case: ::frantically trying to restore systems to operational status::

10:28:49 PM TKirr: +Busard+ See what you can do and let me know when we can move.

10:29:10 PM Charity Suite: ::injects something delightful into the Ensign that has him thinking of boobies instead of pain::

10:29:23 PM Jusstin Case: {Oooh ... I think I need some of that ... }

10:29:25 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Sharks+ Keep your eyes peeled.

10:29:30 PM TKirr: ::steps over to Science:: Find out where that transport came fro-- ::stops short, looking startled::

10:29:40 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Hiya Doc)

10:29:48 PM Jusstin Case: ::completes the thought:: Aye.

10:29:49 PM Charity Suite: (Hey Boss)

10:29:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Sickbay is swamped after last week's attack)

10:29:52 PM TKirr: +Sickbay+ T'Kirr to Sickbay!

10:29:57 PM DrRoxanneCarre: (sorry i'm late...again)

10:30:05 PM TKirr: ((Sokay Suite can handle my call))

10:30:12 PM Jusstin Case: Whoever it was scrambled the logs like a pro. I'll see what I can do.

10:30:51 PM Jusstin Case: ::too preoccupied to notice T'Kirr's short-stopping::

10:30:56 PM ColDougMcKnight: Andorian guy whose actual name I'll remember later> Sorry, Chaka here. I was running a diagnostic.  Took some minor damage to my port inductor assembly, but still flying.

10:30:59 PM Charity Suite: ::manages to get the wrist reset despite the raging ... condition of the Ensign and his lusty-yet-pain-free thoughts::

10:31:15 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::looks over the formations::: Maverick, report.

10:31:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::get silence:: Maverick, Firefly. Report.

10:31:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Sharks+ Anyone have a visual on Maverick?

10:31:50 PM LtCmdrBusard: +T'Kirr+ Aye, ma'am. ::Runs for the nearest control console, tapping into shields and increasing concentration over the hull breach to keep in the air::

10:32:04 PM Charity Suite: ::tips her head::  *T* Suite here, can Ah help you? 

10:32:18 PM TKirr: +Suite+ Doctor, what's Ian's status?

10:32:34 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Shit. I need to reboot quick. I'll be back in a couple of minutes)

10:32:38 PM ColDougMcKnight: As far as the hole, I'll have some of my men report down there ASAP with portable force field emitters.  That should shore things up a bit when we inevitably get shot at again.

10:32:50 PM Jusstin Case: ::frowns:: You're not going to like this, Captain.

10:32:55 PM Charity Suite: ::mutters:; Lazy-ass, good-fer-nuthin' ... ::louder::  He's holdin' his own, slippin' a lil' though.

10:33:24 PM TKirr: ::holds up a finger to Case:: +Suite+ You just saw him? He's still there?

10:33:26 PM ColDougMcKnight: And on the plus side, I think it's safe to say we'll have no trouble now getting Gerard to follow us to Orban II.  That's where those assholes are heading.

10:33:44 PM Charity Suite: (Uhmmm.  *is* he still there?)

10:33:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (yes.)

10:34:01 PM TKirr: ((Yeah sorry))

10:34:08 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: Carr is hanging out in her quarters self-medicating ::

10:34:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::gets silence:: +Sharks+ Maverick, report.

10:35:03 PM Charity Suite: +T+ ::slightly annoyed::  Well, yeah, he's still heah.  Y'all 'spectin' him ta pull a Frankenstein an' walk on outta heah?

10:35:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Atlantis+ Firefly to Atlantis.

10:35:25 PM Jusstin Case: {Brrraiiiins!}

10:35:25 PM Charity Suite: Ensign> ::still with the glazed eyes::

10:35:42 PM TKirr: ::closes her eyes and breathes out:: +Suite+ Nevermind. Carry on.

10:36:16 PM TKirr: ::ponders who could have been transported, then recalls Case had needed her attention, and turns to him inquisitively::

10:36:48 PM Charity Suite: ::rolls her eyes::  Ain't that jus' like a sumpin' in charge?  Git a body distracted an' interrupted, and then it's all 'Nevah mind'. 

10:36:56 PM TKirr: +Harper+ Go ahead, Harper.

10:37:11 PM Jusstin Case: I can't tell you *what* was transported yet, but I can tell you *where* it came from.

10:37:27 PM Charity Suite: Ensign> Body ... like a brick sh-

10:37:28 PM Jusstin Case: Narrowing in on it now ...

10:37:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Harper+ I have a missing pilot, Captain. I need to know if he launched.

10:37:32 PM TKirr: Tell me where, then, Lieutenant.

10:37:36 PM Jusstin Case: Secondary hull ...

10:37:46 PM Jusstin Case: ... Main Engineering.

10:37:54 PM Charity Suite: Ah ah ah, time fer y'all ta git some rest. 

10:37:57 PM Jusstin Case: -- Assuming I'm reading this data correctly.

10:38:15 PM Charity Suite: ::scoots him out the door in the capable hands of some organized orderly::

10:38:48 PM TKirr: ::frowns in consternation:: +Harper+ Missing pilot? ::turns to Case:: Find out.

10:39:00 PM TKirr: +Harper+ Stand by, Firefly.

10:39:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::gets transferred to Case::

10:39:12 PM TKirr: +Engineering+ T'Kirr to Busard.

10:39:42 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::looking all around while flying after not seeing the missing bird on sensors::

10:39:51 PM Charity Suite: ::gives some orders for this medication, that procedure, and several iced teas with mint::

10:39:58 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (mmmm)

10:40:08 PM TKirr: ((Pausing that for Percy))

10:40:28 PM Jusstin Case: ::scanning for missing pilots::

10:41:07 PM Jusstin Case: Oh.

10:41:10 PM Jusstin Case: Oh, my.

10:41:42 PM TKirr: ::arches an eyebrow, annoyed:: Your findings, Lieutenant.

10:41:55 PM Jusstin Case: +Harper+ (and T'Kirr) I've got good news and I've got bad news.

10:41:58 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Case+ Callsign is Maverick, name is Ensign Andre Shore. His fighter is Bearcat.

10:41:58 PM Charity Suite: ::frowns, listening to some of the minor cases that were handled by the other staff::

10:42:19 PM Jusstin Case: [Ah, the minor Cases. That's what we call my cousins!]

10:42:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (/facepalm)

10:42:32 PM Jusstin Case: [They have an a capella group!]

10:42:37 PM Charity Suite: (::laughs::-)

10:42:53 PM Jusstin Case: Harper> +Case+ Good news: The fighter didn't launch.

10:43:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Bass ackwards there. )

10:43:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> So he's alive on Atlantis?

10:43:32 PM Jusstin Case: [Well ... when you hear the bad news, it'll sound good in comparison. :-D]

10:43:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Was referring to the Harper/Case switchup :V )

10:43:53 PM ColDougMcKnight: Permission to leave the bridge, Commander.  I think I can get our tactical sensors retuned faster from the armory.

10:43:55 PM Jusstin Case: [Oh, damnation.]

10:43:59 PM Charity Suite: (No, you played Harper and commed yourself.  :-D  )

10:44:00 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: medication kicks in and Carre mosey's (yes shes feeling no pain) down to sickbay ::

10:44:16 PM TKirr: ::nods to McKnight::

10:44:21 PM Jusstin Case: +Harper+ Well ... he may very well be alive. ... But he's not on Atlantis.

10:44:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Case+ But if he didn't launch...

10:44:36 PM Jusstin Case: +Harper+ That Orion ship transported him aboard.

10:44:48 PM Jusstin Case: +Harper+ Or, he transported himself ...

10:44:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ...

10:45:23 PM Charity Suite: ::looks up as The Boss meanders in::  Rough night last night, Boss? 

10:45:34 PM Jusstin Case: +Harper+ So, yeah.

10:45:49 PM Charity Suite: What were his name?  Or wuz there several?  ::wink and cheeky grin::

10:45:53 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Case+ You're saying our traitor was one of my pilots?

10:46:17 PM Charity Suite: ::ignoring the stares she's getting from the staff::

10:46:21 PM Jusstin Case: +Harper+ Well, really, it's the sensors saying it. I'm just repeating it.

10:46:51 PM TKirr: He was transported from Main Engineering?

10:46:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> :takes a deep breath:: Roger that, Firefly out.

10:47:01 PM TKirr: Why would he be down there?

10:47:02 PM Charity Suite: ::fully exploiting the 'New Guy' immunity she has for the moment::

10:47:17 PM Jusstin Case: [I used that up with the "Journey" comment!]

10:47:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Yes, yes you did.)

10:47:39 PM Jusstin Case: I'm not sure, sir.

10:47:45 PM DrRoxanneCarre: No guys, just some recurring problem. I took care of it.

10:47:48 PM Jusstin Case: I'm not even sure if he *was* down there.

10:47:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Syvek> ::in the armory working on said sensors::

10:47:55 PM Jusstin Case: The sensors are still pretty garbled.

10:47:56 PM ColDougMcKnight: ::As McKnight makes for a turbolift, marine teams of course continue to sweep every deck for dead and wounded, thus speeding the flow of casualties to sickbay.::

10:48:41 PM Charity Suite: ::winces::  Didja wawnt a shot o' penicillin?

10:48:57 PM TKirr: You did tell me the transport was from Main Engineering.

10:49:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::quietly flying the patrol, mulling this over::

10:49:28 PM ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> Oh!  This isn't an action at all, but unless they've been refused access, Gerard's people are aboard too, mostly to help with repairs.

10:49:34 PM TKirr: You think it could be a sensor error?

10:49:42 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Not that kind of problem dear. :: smiles::

10:49:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Oh yes we have help!)

10:50:19 PM Charity Suite: ::grins::  Ah'm Suite.  But y'all can call me Dear.

10:50:26 PM Jusstin Case: The best I can do for you is a "maybe," Captain. I'll try to clean up the data.

10:50:38 PM TKirr: ::nods:: Run a diagnostic if you have to.

10:50:59 PM Jusstin Case: Already on it.

10:51:29 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: mutters :: I'm sure its the meds talking. Now fill me in on anything I might have missed!

10:51:32 PM TKirr: Meanwhile, hail the Hemingway.

10:51:41 PM Jusstin Case: Righto.

10:51:46 PM Jusstin Case: ::hails the Hemingway::

10:51:57 PM Charity Suite: ::sighs, thinks over the last hour and change::  We've had forety-eleventy cases in heah, Boss.  Mostly minor stuff.

10:52:01 PM TKirr: ((Wait, is Busard sharing your login?))

10:52:04 PM Jusstin Case: +Hemingway+ Hemingway, this is Atlantis. Come in, please.

10:52:45 PM Jusstin Case: [Err ... not unless he did it all ninja-like.]

10:52:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Sharks+ Sharks, Firefly. Maverick transported away on the Orion ship.

10:52:56 PM Charity Suite: PADDwork's all up-ta-date. 

10:53:00 PM TKirr: ((Not you, McKnight. I thought she was jsut restarting))

10:53:30 PM Charity Suite: ::motions with her head at the private room::  Sleepin' Beauty's still th' same.

10:53:46 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Very good Suite, umm...carry on. :: spaces out while checking the computer reports ::

10:53:53 PM Charity Suite: Ah gave him sum lip gloss and blush, he wuz lookin' a lil' peaked.

10:54:22 PM ColDougMcKnight: (Sorry, was distracted a moment.)

10:54:30 PM Charity Suite: Looks like he's feelin' bettah.

10:54:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Welcome back!)

10:54:42 PM TKirr: ((WB!))

10:54:47 PM Charity Suite: (wb)

10:54:48 PM ColDougMcKnight: (WB indeed!)

10:54:56 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Thanks! Toopid HP Update freaking out)

10:55:25 PM TKirr: ::waits for the hail to Hemingway to go through::

10:55:29 PM LtCmdrBusard: Sid> Well, shit.

10:55:34 PM ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> A moment later, Gerard's somewhat irritated visage appears on the viewer, though the brunt of his anger is ably being reserved for the enemy.

10:55:48 PM Charity Suite: ::will use some false eyelashes and sparkly eyeshadow on Ian tomorrow, just to see if people will notice::

10:55:54 PM ColDougMcKnight: Gerard> T'Kirr, how's it going over there.  Are my people making themselves useful?

10:56:21 PM TKirr: ::nods:: They are. Thank you for the assistance, Captain. How's your end?

10:56:27 PM LtCmdrBusard: Cubit> ::Eyes Charity suspiciously...again::

10:56:42 PM Charity Suite: ::eyes the little robot suspiciously::

10:56:53 PM Jusstin Case: [When do you do his nails, Charity?]

10:57:06 PM TKirr: ((Careful, Doctor, or you'll get your ass whooped by Vulcan martial arts))

10:57:24 PM Charity Suite: ::wouldn't guess that Cubit prolly removed the aforementioned makeup and reported to The Boss::

10:57:54 PM ColDougMcKnight: (She's going to get hit with a foam bat?)

10:58:06 PM LtCmdrBusard: Cubit> ::Go go gadget sponge extension!::

10:58:22 PM LtCmdrBusard: +T'Kirr+ Busard to T'Kirr, I've got some bad news.

10:58:33 PM Charity Suite: (Whut-oh! ::respectfully gets the hell away from the lil' robot:: )

10:58:48 PM Charity Suite: ::hears an odd whirring::

10:58:56 PM ColDougMcKnight: Gerard> Our shields held up just fine.  We're pretty impatient to go pay these shits back the favor we owe, but that's the worst of it.

10:59:07 PM Jusstin Case: ::still trying to pin down that missing pilot::

10:59:16 PM TKirr: ::holds up a hand to the screen:: One moment, Captain. +Busard+ What is it, Commander?

11:01:12 PM LtCmdrBusard: +T'Kirr+ The deflector's primary connection to the systems mainframe was severed by one of those hits we took. I can fix it, but it's going to take a while, and I'm going to have to do it from

11:01:16 PM LtCmdrBusard: the outside of the ship.

11:02:02 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: hears Cubit, looks to see what has his attention ::

11:02:03 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Sharks+ Though one of our own appears to have been a traitor, I expect the rest of the Wing to pull together to get the job done.

11:02:22 PM Jusstin Case: ::overhears Busard and hopes he doesn't get wrangled into that one::

11:02:37 PM TKirr: ::shuts her eyes, acknowledging their predicament:: +Busard+ Make it your priority. We're vulnerable if we can't move. Also, sensors detected a transport out of main engineering during the battle.

11:02:48 PM LtCmdrBusard: Cubit> ::Brandishing a sponge::

11:03:04 PM Charity Suite: ::drains an iced tea and gets back to work::  Next.

11:03:08 PM TKirr: +Busard+ Spare one of your people to check if anything, or anyone is missing.

11:03:36 PM Charity Suite: ::double-take::  Why ... what's that fer?  ::looking at Cubit::

11:03:53 PM LtCmdrBusard: +T'Kirr+ What? Shit. Yes, ma'am, I'll make a quick head count before jumping out the airlock.

11:04:25 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: smiles :: Cubit? Hes a pet...more or less.

11:04:53 PM LtCmdrBusard: Sid> Gotcha, Firefly.

11:05:43 PM Charity Suite: Well ... Ah think Ah wuz referrin' to th' ... ::lowers her voice::  Why'z he holdin' a tampon?

11:05:44 PM TKirr: +Busard+ The sensors could be in error, and we've found it to possibly be Ensign Andre Shore, one of our Shark pilots, transported to the Orion ship. Scan for transport activity and give me a report when you've got something.

11:05:59 PM TKirr: +Busard+ I want to know if it was him down there, and why.

11:06:27 PM TKirr: ::looks to Gerard on the screen to see if he's picking up on the conversation::

11:06:32 PM LtCmdrBusard: Cubit> ::Looks at the sponge, then back at Charity with something of a horrified look.::

11:06:33 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: shrugs :: he probably thinks it a weapon.

11:06:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::passes over the damaged section of Atlantis's hull and eyeballs it::

11:07:01 PM Jusstin Case: ::coordinates with miscellaneous engineer::

11:07:15 PM Charity Suite: Ohhhh.  ::opens her eyes wide::  Ah shore am skeered!  You betcha!  Uh-huh!

11:07:27 PM LtCmdrBusard: +T'Kirr+ I'll find that out, ma'am.

11:07:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::winces:: Ouch.

11:08:04 PM LtCmdrBusard: Cubit> Whirr! ::Waving around apparently a tampon menacingly::

11:08:12 PM Charity Suite: ::backs away from Cubit and finds someone to inflict herself on::

11:08:35 PM LtCmdrBusard: Cubit> ::Victory dance!::

11:08:57 PM TKirr: ::to Gerard:: Your sensors are no doubt in one piece. Do you know anything about the transport? I'd take a solid warp trail as well.

11:09:48 PM ColDougMcKnight: ::Oh, and by now, those promised force field emitters are in place, supplementing the ship's own emergency fields.  Coupled with the emergency bulkheads in place, the ship should be ready for travel, at least on that front.::

11:10:21 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Percy heads down to main engineering:: All engineers at attention! NOW. I will expect name and rank announced in an orderly fashion.

11:10:38 PM Jusstin Case: ::to T'Kirr:: Receiving reports that emergency force fields are in place and holding, sir. The ship will be ready for travel ... once the main deflector is repaired.

11:11:23 PM TKirr: ::stands with arms folded towards the screen and turns her head to nod at Case, appearing a little more understanding::

11:11:45 PM Charity Suite: Hey, Boss, kin Ah get you sumpin'?  Cawfee?  Tea?  Jack Daniels?

11:12:28 PM LtCmdrBusard: ACTION> All of Engineering presumably stands at attention. Percy goes down the line, taking names as she goes and checking them off a list in her head.

11:12:48 PM Jusstin Case: [I could go for some Tennessee Tea, Charity. :-D]

11:13:20 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Are the reports on the toxin done yet?

11:13:34 PM LtCmdrBusard: +T'Kirr+ ::As she's suiting up:: Busard to T'Kirr. We're missing no one in Engineering.

11:13:57 PM Charity Suite: Toxin ... toxin ... Ah remembah sumpin' about that ... lemme think.

11:14:06 PM ColDougMcKnight: Gerard> ::Clenches his teeth::  They got the cloak back up pretty soon after they departed, I'm afraid.  Still, their trajectory...I'd say it's in about the right direction for us.

11:14:12 PM TKirr: +Busard+ ::nods uselessly:: Good. Check equipment, too. Did you scan for transport activity?

11:14:26 PM Charity Suite: ::pulls a PADD from under a used chillpack::  Heah ya go.

11:14:38 PM Charity Suite: ::hands Roxy the PADD::

11:15:55 PM TKirr: ::nods to Gerard:: We would agree with you, there. Until our deflector is repaired, I'm afraid we'll be going nowhere. I don't want you flying off without us just for the sake of keeping track of them.

11:16:22 PM Jusstin Case: ::pipes up:: I'll see if I can improve the long-range sensors, so they don't get too far ahead of us.

11:16:35 PM Jusstin Case: (m) Normally, that'd involve the main deflector, but ....

11:16:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (details, details!)

11:16:46 PM LtCmdrBusard: +T'Kirr+ I did. It looks like one particular pilot was in engineering briefly before transporting off the ship. I think we found our traitor.

11:17:20 PM Jusstin Case: ::inclines his head:: Hmm...! Yes, that'll work nicely!

11:17:31 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Now suited up, grabs her toolkit with a couple of engineers and heads out for some work on the main deflector::

11:17:35 PM Jusstin Case: ::cracks his knuckles and gets down to business::

11:17:52 PM TKirr: +Busard+ Thank you, Commander. Stay warm.

11:18:06 PM Jusstin Case: O, Captain, my Captain?

11:18:23 PM TKirr: ::turns to Case again::

11:18:45 PM Jusstin Case: I can't guarantee it will find anything, but I think I can improve the range of our sensors -- without the main deflector.

11:19:03 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::sees Busard's crew exit the ship, dips a wing to them as she flies over::

11:19:04 PM LtCmdrBusard: +T'Kirr+ Aye, aye. Busard out. ::To the other engineers:: Alright. Work close and work hard. I want this connection fixed pronto. ::Cue sonic screwdriver work::

11:19:11 PM ColDougMcKnight: Gerard> Hey, they went after you and yours.  Besides, if they have too many more like that last ship, we'll need all the firepower we can get.  And it's not like Orban II is going anywhere.  So long as you don't dawdle, we'll wait.

11:19:26 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Aand...notices the fighter with something of a curious look::

11:19:28 PM TKirr: ::nods, curious as to his methods, but deciding to ask about them later:: Do it.

11:19:36 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: looks over the information on the PADD :: Still no answer!

11:19:42 PM Jusstin Case: (Shucks. I was hoping you'd ask. :-D)

11:19:47 PM Jusstin Case: ::gets to work::

11:19:53 PM Jusstin Case: ::probably will write a paper on it later::

11:20:11 PM Charity Suite: 7

11:20:40 PM Charity Suite: (That seven is from the cat.  )

11:20:58 PM TKirr: ::again towards the main viewer:: We greatly appreciate your help, Captain... both your vessel and your assistance with repairs. I'll try to get ours up and running soon so your graciousness isn't without reward.

11:21:05 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Well, must have been important!)

11:21:29 PM Charity Suite: (He sais you guys would understand.  ::shrug:: )

11:22:05 PM Jusstin Case: ::reroutes sensors through the hull plating, thereby turning Atlantis into one, big, Sovereign-class set of rabbit ears::

11:22:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (A little more to the left....)

11:22:49 PM Charity Suite: (Lift your left foot ... )

11:22:49 PM Jusstin Case: [We just need to wrap the ship in tin foil, and we're good!]

11:23:15 PM ColDougMcKnight: Gerard> ::Smiles softly::  Reward sounds nice.  Anyway, keep me appraised. 

11:23:33 PM Jusstin Case: Captain, I've got good news, and I've got great news.

11:23:36 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Looks at the reading on her PADD confusingly, then the look of confusion breaks into a grin:: Oh that's brilliant.

11:23:44 PM TKirr: ::nods and watches the screen blink back to the Hemingway's hull::

11:23:51 PM TKirr: Let's hear it.

11:23:57 PM Charity Suite: Boss, Ah cain't imagine whut it could be.

11:24:15 PM Jusstin Case: The good news is that the modified sensors are detecting a ... blip ... in the direction of Orban II.

11:24:33 PM TKirr: ::takes in the information, nodding, still with her arms crossed::

11:24:35 PM Jusstin Case: I can't be certain -- yet -- but it has all the trappings of being our Orion friends

11:24:54 PM TKirr: I assume that's the good news.

11:25:00 PM Jusstin Case: ::nods excitedly::

11:25:11 PM Charity Suite: ::shuffles some PADDs and puts them away::  Aftah this many tries, you'd think sumpin' would show up on the tests.

11:25:36 PM Jusstin Case: [The Admiral never did well at tests ...]

11:25:54 PM Charity Suite: It's not like we ain't got a whole shipful o' reference material.

11:25:58 PM TKirr: ...And the great?

11:26:03 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Looks over the damage on the deflector closely, and suddenly her eyes go wide:: Ah HAH! ::And dives into machinery, if such a thing were possible in zero gravity::

11:26:25 PM Jusstin Case: Oh, yes. We're also now picking up HBO and Cinemax.

11:26:27 PM Charity Suite: They ain't much out theah that we don't know about.  ::shakes her head::

11:26:28 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::circling the work area protectively::

11:26:31 PM LtCmdrBusard: (lmao)

11:26:37 PM TKirr: ::arches eyebrow::

11:26:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (That's illegal!)

11:27:00 PM Jusstin Case: [One of the advantages of being 1,000 light years from Federation Headquarters!]

11:27:08 PM TKirr: Keep me informed if that blip changes.

11:27:21 PM Jusstin Case: Roger!

11:27:23 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Shit, all the way back from the 21st century, though? Did he break the space-time continuum somewhere along the way?)

11:27:23 PM TKirr: +Harper+ Atlantis to Serenity.

11:27:38 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Atlantis+ Firefly here, go ahead.

11:27:39 PM DrRoxanneCarre: No, but the toxin was genetically altered. Thats why we're having such a problem nailing down.

11:28:05 PM TKirr: +Harper+ Call the Sharks in, Firefly. They got what they wanted. I don't think they'll be coming back before we hunt them down.

11:28:10 PM Charity Suite: :;tips her head::  So ... take out th' variable.

11:28:14 PM Jusstin Case: ::catches episodes of "The Sopranos" and something called "Desperate Housewives" in between scans::

11:28:44 PM TKirr: ((I guess Star Trek is out of syndication? =( ))

11:28:54 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Atlantis+ Roger that. +Sharks+ Return to base, all birds.

11:29:00 PM Charity Suite: (Yeah, but they're on movie 252)

11:29:05 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::makes a beeline for the assault bay::

11:29:18 PM Jusstin Case: [Haven't switched to that channel, yet. Don't worry, he'll get there. :-D]

11:29:22 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Wiggling her feet slightly as she tries to get to a particularly central connection:: And you go in here, and then YOU ::She touches the screwdriver to a conduit to her left, which seems to zap to life:: get a buzz and then...

11:29:57 PM Jusstin Case: Hmm ...

11:30:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The deflector roars to life!

11:30:07 PM Jusstin Case: -- Captain1

11:30:09 PM Charity Suite: ( ROAR )

11:30:16 PM Jusstin Case: [RAWR!]

11:30:24 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Giggles gleefully in the privacy of her own helmet:: Yes!!

11:30:28 PM TKirr: ((Yay the Christmas lights are on!))

11:30:31 PM Jusstin Case: [Deflector> I has a fierce!]

11:30:43 PM Jusstin Case: ::clears throat:: Uh, Captain!

11:30:45 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::lands Serenity and throws her helmet into the locker room, goes into her office and grabs Shore's personnel file, then stalks into the TL:: Bridge.

11:30:45 PM TKirr: ::didn't bother to turn away from Case this time:: Good news?

11:30:51 PM Charity Suite: ( Hahahaaaaa Jusstin!)

11:31:14 PM Jusstin Case: The deflector just roared back to life! Commander Busard's fixed it!

11:31:37 PM Jusstin Case: [Though it could use a Ricola.]

11:32:12 PM TKirr: Now that is the great news. Once she's back inside, call in reports of all departments, prepare to be warp ready.

11:32:24 PM Jusstin Case: Righto!

11:32:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM

11:32:35 PM TKirr: ::turns to the main viewer and the space splashed across it:: The Orions are about to have company.

11:32:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM

11:32:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM

11:32:41 PM Charity Suite: ::paused::

11:32:43 PM TKirr: ::pauses::

11:32:48 PM Jusstin Case: ::freezes::

11:32:52 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::pauses after patting the ship proudly::

11:33:17 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Good work culling the chaos, everyone. :)

11:33:18 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Pauses

11:33:25 PM TKirr: Yes, well done.

11:34:09 PM TKirr: Although Sickbay seemed more like an elderly home than triage >_>

11:34:16 PM DrRoxanneCarre: DOH

11:34:18 PM Jusstin Case: That's not nice to say about the Admiral.

11:34:22 PM Jusstin Case: He can't help it. :-D

11:34:31 PM ColDougMcKnight: He totally colors his hair!

11:34:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: He does not!

11:34:39 PM DrRoxanneCarre: I know he does!

11:34:39 PM LtCmdrBusard: Lulz, he's OLD.

11:34:43 PM LtCmdrBusard: GEEZER.

11:34:47 PM Charity Suite: I think my Enisign's gonna become an addict, though, with the dreams he's having.

11:34:49 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *whispers* I saw the roots!

11:35:01 PM Jusstin Case: I can attest that the Admiral's hair is not colored.

11:35:02 PM TKirr: I said Sickbay, not Someoneinsickbay.

11:35:10 PM Charity Suite: I thought the lip gloss was a nice 'Ron Reagan' touch.

11:35:16 PM Jusstin Case: ... I saw him put it on the other day, and it was already that color!

11:35:18 PM LtCmdrBusard: lmao

11:35:18 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *raises hand* That would probably be me.

11:35:37 PM TKirr: /facepalm

11:35:41 PM ColDougMcKnight: He's like Dorian Grey's portrait if he goes too long without a gin and tonic.

11:35:51 PM LtCmdrBusard: O.O

11:35:53 PM LtCmdrBusard: WOW

11:35:55 PM LtCmdrBusard: REALLY?

11:36:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: /facepalm

11:36:05 PM DrRoxanneCarre: I was trying to get my dentist to prescribe some drugs, he came through, now if they would only kick in! *whimpers*

11:36:17 PM TKirr: Fine, nothing like an elderly home. More like British tea time.

11:36:17 PM LtCmdrBusard: Aww,

11:36:25 PM LtCmdrBusard: *.

11:36:36 PM TKirr: Poor thing. =/

11:36:47 PM LtCmdrBusard: With the three-headed knight from Holy Grail?

11:36:48 PM TKirr: You have a week to get better! =)

11:37:00 PM LtCmdrBusard: Because I have a feeling that tea time with that thing would either be awesome or terrible.

11:37:02 PM LtCmdrBusard: One of the two!

11:37:06 PM TKirr: Mm... I suppose Cubit would do.

11:37:11 PM DrRoxanneCarre: I have about 30 minutes for the drugs to kick in...then I'll be good! :D

11:37:19 PM Jusstin Case: Alcohol works faster.

11:37:21 PM Charity Suite: Cubit has amazing weaponry.

11:37:24 PM LtCmdrBusard: Cubit> Whirr?

11:37:28 PM LtCmdrBusard: Lol

11:37:31 PM LtCmdrBusard: It was a SPONGE

11:37:32 PM TKirr: And also makes your gums bleed, Case. =P

11:37:36 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Nerf bat!

11:37:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: That bit was hilarious.

11:37:40 PM Jusstin Case: ... It does?

11:37:43 PM LtCmdrBusard: To clean off the makeup!

11:37:47 PM LtCmdrBusard: :-(

11:37:54 PM TKirr: Thins your blood, so yeah...

11:37:56 PM Charity Suite: Heh ... my bad.  ;-)

11:37:57 PM LtCmdrBusard: Although it being a tampon does seem funnier.

11:38:02 PM TKirr: If you had dentist work done lol

11:38:12 PM LtCmdrBusard: And by seem I mean I almost peed myself laughing.

11:38:23 PM Jusstin Case: Ahh.

11:39:01 PM DrRoxanneCarre: (salycilic acid is a blood thinner, never take aspirin before going to the dentist or someplace you'll be bleeding).

11:39:30 PM Charity Suite: (Like school.)

11:39:45 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Why are you using parentheses?)

11:39:46 PM Jusstin Case: [Does it count if the bleeding is by your own hand?]

11:39:51 PM LtCmdrBusard: (IS IT A SECRET??)

11:39:52 PM Charity Suite: (Or DMV)

11:40:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: DMV makes everyone bleed.

11:40:21 PM Jusstin Case: Ew.

11:40:40 PM DrRoxanneCarre: (more of a side note)

11:40:42 PM TKirr: Rofl

11:40:50 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Yarrr....more like guidelines!

11:41:12 PM LtCmdrBusard: Anyway, time to abscond with my favorite security chief!

11:41:15 PM LtCmdrBusard: Mwahahaha

11:41:20 PM Jusstin Case: Ew.

11:41:27 PM TKirr: o_O

11:41:39 PM LtCmdrBusard: *ahem*

11:41:42 PM LtCmdrBusard: Yoink!

11:41:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Night y'all.

11:41:51 PM Jusstin Case: Ta ta!

11:41:55 PM TKirr: Night everyone, see you next week.

11:41:55 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Night guys

11:41:56 PM Charity Suite: Night everyone!  :-)

11:42:11 PM Jusstin Case: ::grabs Charity and dashes off into the night::

11:42:11 PM ColDougMcKnight: Right, apparently I have to sign off to be absconded with.

11:42:16 PM ColDougMcKnight: Night!
