9:59:08 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ah, well, how nice of AIM to allow us to use a chatroom!

9:59:23 PM Jusstin Case: They are a gracious overlord.

10:01:23 PM Jusstin Case: All hail.

10:01:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Praise be to AIM.

10:01:49 PM Jusstin Case: Okay, we need a virgin to sacrifice.

10:02:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: On this ship?!

10:02:39 PM Jusstin Case: Yeeah, it's a long shot, isn't it?

10:05:38 PM MisterBoxingBear: Hey.  Evening.

10:05:41 PM Jusstin Case: Woo.

10:05:41 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hiya Mike

10:06:21 PM MisterBoxingBear: Forgive the non-uniform SN.  I'm in another RP.  It's normally on Sundays, but had to be re-scheduled due to various conflicts.

10:06:58 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hiya Charity

10:07:23 PM Charity Suite: Hey  :-)

10:08:31 PM Jusstin Case: Charity!

10:08:32 PM MisterBoxingBear: Evening!

10:08:57 PM LtCmdrBusard: Good day!

10:09:41 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hiya Percy

10:10:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: T'Kirr reformatted today and is just getting AIM installed.

10:11:02 PM Charity Suite: Did you get my message about Google's group chat option?

10:11:40 PM LtCmdrBusard: Nope.

10:11:59 PM MisterBoxingBear: We actually tried a Google chat service last week.  Unless this is something totally different.

10:12:19 PM Jusstin Case: This is something totally different.

10:12:21 PM Jusstin Case: ::nods::

10:12:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ah, no, where did it go?

10:12:41 PM Charity Suite: Heh .. well, I sent a message to Jason, saying that Google has a group chat option built in ... what you were using last week was a pre-beta work-around version of it.

10:13:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ah, from what I understand, that only works in the official talk client, yes?

10:14:01 PM Charity Suite: ::grin::  I sent it to your gChat window, of course.  ;-)

10:14:22 PM Charity Suite: No ... it's part of whatever you're using.

10:14:42 PM Jusstin Case: Embrace change. :-D

10:14:54 PM Charity Suite: Home page chat, email page chat

10:18:25 PM MisterBoxingBear: Well, in the meantime, AIM seems pretty stable tonight.

10:18:31 PM MisterBoxingBear: Evening, T'Kirr.

10:18:42 PM TKirr: My newly reformatted computer is definitely not stable. -_-

10:19:19 PM TKirr: I download AIM... the installer's corrupt... I redownload... install AIM... it crashes

10:19:20 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Well well, this google group chat that Charity discovered seems to be the wave of the future.

10:19:35 PM TKirr: How so?

10:19:36 PM Charity Suite: ::waves::

10:20:06 PM Jusstin Case: ::waves::

10:21:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: OK then, I think next week we'll try to migrate over to google, but let's sim here for now.

10:23:14 PM DrRoxanneCarre: ((Hello! *looks all frazzeled and stuff*))

10:23:27 PM LtCmdrBusard: My my! Wherefore art thou frazzled?

10:23:32 PM TKirr: ::TWEEEEEET::

10:23:41 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::AA::

10:23:43 PM Jusstin Case: ::AA::

10:23:46 PM DrRoxanneCarre: :: AA ::

10:24:19 PM Charity Suite: ::AA::

10:24:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: When last we left, the Atlantis was in a bad way.

10:24:23 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::AA::

10:24:58 PM VAdm Blackthorne: With the normal bridge and the rest of deck one destroyed, we've set up command on the battle bridge. The saucer has no shielding, so it's being evacuated.

10:25:37 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Mustangs are about to launch to help deal with the threat of three incoming Orion cruisers.

10:26:29 PM Charity Suite: (m) Round 'em up, move 'em out Rawhiiiiiide!

10:26:36 PM MisterBoxingBear: Wait, I guess I missed that last week.  Why doesn't the saucer have shielding?  Did we break the deflector dish when I wasn't looking?

10:26:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Repairs are still trying to get Atlantis warp capable, but hey. Questions?

10:26:46 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Will there be sauteed Orions when we are done?

10:27:01 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Damage from falling out of high warp due to a shuttle collision.

10:27:11 PM VAdm Blackthorne: No.

10:27:19 PM MisterBoxingBear: Ah.  But the stardrive section IS shielded still?

10:27:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Yes.

10:27:26 PM Charity Suite: (w) Butt hay?  ::wrinkes her nose::

10:27:50 PM LtCmdrBusard: Eww.

10:27:59 PM Jusstin Case: ::gags::

10:28:07 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ooooookay then. Yi.

10:28:13 PM Charity Suite: Yi!

10:28:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

10:28:15 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

10:28:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: BEGIN SIM

10:28:43 PM Jusstin Case: ::for some reason, tries to bleach out his brain::

10:28:58 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Ten minutes til the party.

10:29:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Sharks+ Sharks, Firefly, commcheck and report in.

10:29:34 PM Jusstin Case: ::keeping an eye on the sensors::

10:29:42 PM Jusstin Case: No change as of yet, sir.

10:30:03 PM MisterBoxingBear: Zh'dani> +Harper+ Chaka here, showing green lights across the board.  Let's get out there!

10:30:07 PM TKirr: ::monitors repairs next to Blackthorne on the battle bridge, looking grim::

10:31:09 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *mutters about more incoming injuries while still trying to clean up the existing ones*

10:31:16 PM LtCmdrBusard: Sid> +Harper+ Crazy Horse, ready for takeoff.

10:31:19 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Busard+ Blackthorne to Busard, status of weapons?

10:31:37 PM Charity Suite: ::working hard in SickBay, since there's likely a whole slew of wounded::

10:31:49 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Bridge+ Atlantis, Firefly, Sharks are ready for launch.

10:32:04 PM Charity Suite: Ah need some presshah heah on this heah laig wound, Nurse.

10:32:19 PM LtCmdrBusard: +Blackthorne+ Working on it, sir. The radiation's done a fair bit of damage down here. I might be able to get you minimum phasers in...about five minutes.

10:32:20 PM Jusstin Case: (What's a laig?_

10:32:42 PM MisterBoxingBear: McKnight> ::From the newly re-taken security, McKnight hunches over a console with a frown, then spins around to Jvar::  Mr. Jvar, if the Orion succeed in taking this ship, you're dog meat.  I'd like your help in assuring that doesn't happen.

10:32:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Harper+ Firefly, Actual, launch Mustangs.

10:33:07 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jvar> Me? Hm, well, I do have some skills that might come in handy...

10:33:18 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Sharks+ Go for launch, good hunting.

10:33:36 PM Charity Suite: (Ya gots two of them, Jusstin)

10:33:50 PM Jusstin Case: (I do?  Should I see a doctor?)

10:34:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Busard+ Better than throwing rocks. How about the torpedo tube blockages?

10:34:30 PM Jusstin Case: (Oh, right! *That's* what I was doing last week.)

10:34:34 PM Jusstin Case: ::working on a tube blockage::

10:34:46 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::guns the throttle and shoots out into space::

10:35:27 PM TKirr: Sharks are clear.

10:35:32 PM Charity Suite: ::rips open the tube of Super Glue::  Okay, hol' that artery still ...  ::glue glue glue::

10:35:54 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Points to the console::  I've got this display set up just the way we need it.  As you see, it has the deck layout on it.  The appropriate section will flash red if an unauthorized transport is detected, then the blue dots will represent the presence of a comm badge.  In short, the good guys.

10:36:34 PM MisterBoxingBear: I need you to control the security fields as we go, such that our guys can get where they need to go and they can't.  Do any of your skills apply?

10:36:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jvar> It's just like routing traffic through a network.

10:37:07 PM Charity Suite: That'll hol' fer until Ah kin get the dermal regen unit workin' again.

10:37:13 PM Charity Suite: ::shakes the unti::

10:37:16 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Sharks+ Firefly here, assume standard CAP until our friends arrive.

10:37:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::flies over the bridge and winces::

10:37:30 PM LtCmdrBusard: Sid> +Harper+ Aye aye.

10:37:32 PM MisterBoxingBear: Sweet.  I hope you're good at that, because if you hadn't noticed, we're short-handed just now.  I can't guarantee your safety if they get this far.

10:37:48 PM LtCmdrBusard: +Blackthorne+ We're working on it. Case should give you an update soon.

10:37:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Jvar> I think I can do this.

10:37:55 PM Jusstin Case: +Battle Bridge+  I think I may have one of the blockages cleared.  Could you try the launching mechanism?

10:37:56 PM Charity Suite: ::smacks it against the table, and it hums to life::

10:38:02 PM Charity Suite: ::the unti, not the patient::

10:38:06 PM Charity Suite: ::unit::

10:38:28 PM MisterBoxingBear: Chaka> ::Gapes at the gigantic hole on the saucer section.::  Harper, this is why you don't drive drunk!

10:38:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Hiya Glenn)

10:38:33 PM MisterBoxingBear: (Evening.)

10:38:34 PM EnsRyanCarter: (Hey guys)

10:38:39 PM EnsRyanCarter: (sorry internet was down)

10:38:41 PM Charity Suite: (Glink!)

10:38:47 PM Jusstin Case: (He's come to town!)

10:39:02 PM TKirr: +Case+ On it. ::swings up to the console:: Engaging.

10:39:03 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper>  +Sharks+ I wish I had been drunk at the time, it would have made almost being a permanent scorch mark down there a little easier.

10:39:42 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::is in the battle bridge (last I recall)::

10:40:06 PM Charity Suite: ::seals the torn artery, then the torn muscles that used to be not torn::

10:40:30 PM Charity Suite: ::turns and hands the regen unit to the nurse to finish closing::

10:40:43 PM Charity Suite: Yuck.  Lookit mah hands.

10:40:55 PM Charity Suite: Patient> That's MY blood!!  ::faints::

10:41:24 PM Charity Suite: Hmm.  Ah need ta work on that, Ah think.  ::goes to wash and scrub::

10:41:45 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (I think you were working on the rad problem in Engineering from the b-bridge)

10:41:50 PM Charity Suite: ::wonders why she's the only one playing at the moment::

10:42:05 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::monitoring Percy from the battle bridge::

10:42:08 PM TKirr: +Case+ Looks good, Lieutenant. Now all you need is something to put in it.

10:42:15 PM Jusstin Case: ::raises an eyebrow::

10:42:21 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::and monitoring the hull fractures too::

10:42:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Load the bloody things by hand if you have to.

10:42:56 PM Jusstin Case: +T'Kirr+ Aye ... aye ...

10:43:03 PM Jusstin Case: ::looking around for a torpedo::

10:43:12 PM Jusstin Case: ::hoping that's what the commander meant::

10:43:47 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::First has to find some manner of link that has enough power to activate the phasers, so she digs into the power array to find anything that's available. After finding a few different ones, she begins bonding them together, and when this is done, attempts to link them directly to the phaser controls.::

10:43:55 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *Does a quick check of everyone in the temp trauma center* You there! *points to a random med-aide* We need to move out anyone thats ambulatory have them sent to...holodeck 3. You head down there, ignore the out-of-order sign on the door, move any equipment laying around off to one side. DO NOT BREAK ANYTHING!!! Then help assist patients down there.

10:44:59 PM Jusstin Case: +T'Kirr+ The conveyor mechanism is busted up like a Christmas tree; I *am* going to have to do this myself.

10:45:10 PM Jusstin Case: +T'Kirr+ It will take a few minutes to load.

10:45:40 PM Charity Suite: ::frowns and scrubs her hands again::  Out, damn spot!

10:45:42 PM TKirr: +Case+ Understood. Find anyone passing that doesn't appear to be doing anything vital to help you.

10:46:01 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Lmao)

10:46:06 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Gem, I love you)

10:46:08 PM LtCmdrBusard: (So much)

10:46:14 PM Jusstin Case: Erm ... kay ...

10:46:22 PM TKirr: (lol)

10:46:28 PM Jusstin Case: You, there! ::points to a group of NPC flunkies::

10:46:48 PM Charity Suite: (Couldn't resist)  ;-)

10:46:52 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Well, hand loaded torpedos are better than rocks.

10:47:26 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::monitoring the power conduits, phaser banks, the fractures in the hull, and the radiation levels::

10:47:29 PM TKirr: ::notes the Orions closing fast on sensors and ponders the reason they hate Atlantis so much::

10:47:39 PM Charity Suite: ::turns from the sink and surveys for her next dance::

10:47:54 PM Jusstin Case: ::grabs the lead flunkie::

10:48:14 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::doing some pre-emptive junction re-routing around the more unstable parts of the ship's hull::

10:48:14 PM VAdm Blackthorne: T'Kirr, is the saucer evacuation complete?

10:48:30 PM Jusstin Case: Keep thrusting these salvos into the tubes, and don't stop until you hear a satisfying explosion!

10:48:35 PM Charity Suite: ::picks the crewman with the arm hanging at an unnatural angle::

10:48:45 PM TKirr: Not yet. If the stragglers keep pace, I estimate two minutues.

10:49:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Once they're out, flood the whole thing with anesthezine gas.

10:49:15 PM Charity Suite: This'll be quick.  It's jus' dislocated.

10:49:19 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *heads back to Sickbay and triage*

10:49:23 PM VAdm Blackthorne: If we're boarded in the unshielded sections, they'll have a surprise.

10:49:29 PM Charity Suite: This might hurt a smidge.

10:49:32 PM Jusstin Case: ::NPCs start pushing torpedoes in::

10:49:39 PM TKirr: ::perks a brow, preparing the modifications::

10:50:00 PM Jusstin Case: +T'Kirr+ Okay, I think I've found a workaround.

10:50:06 PM Charity Suite: ::has a rather burly crewman hold the suddenly paler patient::

10:50:13 PM TKirr: +Case+ What do we have to work with?

10:50:48 PM Charity Suite: Now, mah Uncle Bobby-Jim once did this when he was wrastlin' a pig at th' county fair ...

10:50:50 PM TKirr: ChildStraggler> ::drops teddy bear and wails::

10:51:12 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Just in case, McKnight has a pretty large concentration of his men guarding the approaches into the stardrive section.  Once the last crew have passed through, the security fields will go up.::

10:52:35 PM Charity Suite: It's all a matter o' angles ... y'gotta pull ta th' right ... and YANK

10:52:48 PM Charity Suite: Patient> ::screams and faints::

10:52:52 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::watches as their enemy continues to approach::

10:52:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The evacuation is completed, even the teddy bear. :)

10:53:01 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Finishes her connection, fusing the wires into place before going to look for more power couplings.:: +Battle Bridge+ Phasers are active, but there isn't much power to give them. You might have enough for one, two shots maybe. I'm trying to find more power to divert now.

10:53:02 PM TKirr: ::staring hard in the low glow of the console:: Evacuation complete. Initiating environmental separation and venting the gas.

10:53:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Busard+ Better than nothing, keep it up.

10:53:42 PM Jusstin Case: +T'Kirr+ I got a bunch of crewmen without last names to put the torpedoes in manually.

10:53:44 PM Charity Suite: Uhmm ... pror him up in th' corner over there an' give him a painkillah. 

10:54:08 PM Charity Suite: Mebbe Ah shoulda done that in a different order.  Painkillah first.

10:54:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> Three Orion Cruisers arrive on the scene and open fire.

10:54:24 PM MisterBoxingBear: StragglerHobbes>::Bats the teddy bear around the deack as he considers a pounce.::

10:54:45 PM VAdm Blackthorne: +Shipwide+ All hands, brace for impact.

10:54:46 PM MisterBoxingBear: (the deck, too.)

10:54:55 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::braces::

10:55:06 PM Charity Suite: Uh oh.  ::braces::

10:55:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Sharks+ There's our cue, focus all fire on the lead cruiser. ::rockets forward::

10:55:20 PM Jusstin Case: ::is tossed about::

10:55:50 PM TKirr: ::moves to weapons in a stagger and mutters something about they had better get a good shot::

10:56:03 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Tumbles a bit, before recovering and getting back to work.::

10:56:29 PM LtCmdrBusard: Sid> Yeehaw! ::Blam blam blammity blam!::

10:56:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Evasives!

10:57:11 PM MisterBoxingBear: Chaka> ::Jams the accelerator to the floor, passing within mere feet of a disruptor beam as he bears down on the lead cruiser, plowing through his own blast as he unloads a pair of torpedoes at near point blank range.::

10:57:14 PM Charity Suite: That weren't so bad.  ::extricates herself from the pile of injured people and picks one to work on, not paying attention to the panic in her eyes as she is led to the waiting table::

10:57:53 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::gets out of the center seat and takes helm away from the random Ensign::

10:58:19 PM Jusstin Case: C'mon, you lugs!  Put your backs into it!

10:58:25 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::as Orion fire rips into the saucer, he maneuvers the ship to minimize the vulnerable section's targeting profile::

10:58:29 PM TKirr: ::brings the lead cruiser on screen, giving them a cinematic view of the Sharks first closing then engaging in a flurry of little explosions across the cruiser's shielding::

10:58:31 PM Charity Suite: Patient 3>::having seen Patients 1 and 2 with growing horror::  Doctor, I'm feeling much better.

10:58:40 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *stumbles into sickbay half-dragging an injured crewman* Found another one.

10:58:55 PM EnsRyanCarter: We're still okay... relatively speaking...

10:59:11 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::busy at work at his console trying to watch four or five things at once::

10:59:48 PM Charity Suite: ::looks up::  Omigosh!

11:00:06 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::fires off a microtorp volley as she closes, then pulls up to avoid fire and comes about for another strafing run::

11:00:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Lead Cruiser> ::Being harassed by the fighters, breaks off the attack on Atlantis::

11:00:35 PM Charity Suite: Don't jus' stand there, help the Boss, you lazy good-fer-nuthin' ... oh, sorry Lieutenant.  Uh, wouldja go help the Boss?

11:01:12 PM TKirr: ::locates the Sharks' most concentrated target and, as Blackthorne evades just so, sends off a few precious torpedoes::

11:01:35 PM MisterBoxingBear: Chaka> ::Peppers the cruiser with omni-directional phaser fire as it tries to nail him with return fire.  He's flying, however, so erratically it strains credulity that even he's planning it.::  Walk without rhythm, it won't attract the worm.

11:02:02 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Cruiser> ::firing phasers at the fighters buthaving difficulty targeting them::

11:02:25 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Andorians are not Fremen!)

11:02:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Other Two Cruisers> ::closing on Atlantis, firing weapons like they think they have a fatally wounded victim::

11:02:32 PM Charity Suite: Fine as frog hair, Boss.  ::grinning, unaware of the smear of something on her cheek::

11:03:29 PM TKirr: ::grips the console as something sparks violently off to her right::

11:03:33 PM Charity Suite: (Do they have blue eyes?  Well then ...)

11:03:38 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::ducks as sparks fly out of the console and smoke squirts out of the ceiling::

11:03:45 PM MisterBoxingBear: Chaka> +Harper+ Firefly, I have a really cool, really stupid idea.

11:03:45 PM DrRoxanneCarre: If you didnt have any tea,  you should take a break and get some. You also might want to find a mirror. Take 10 and drink the tea! Who's next before you go?

11:03:49 PM LtCmdrBusard: Sid> ::Corkscrews out of the way of a phaser shot, before pulling up and unloading a nice heap of explody on the cruiser::

11:03:57 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Chaka+ Hit me.

11:04:18 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::coughing as he continues to operate the console, sucks the smoke out of the battle bridge::

11:04:24 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::brings the Atlantis about, grimacing at the smoke:: Fire all weapons!

11:04:33 PM Charity Suite: Oh, this lil' lady checks out with six, count 'em, six cracked ribs an' a bruised liver.

11:04:48 PM Charity Suite: ::toddles off to get tea and scrub her face::

11:05:07 PM Jusstin Case: ::prooobably being exposed to unpleasant forms of radiation down here::

11:05:24 PM Charity Suite: (Did you wear your lead frillies?)

11:05:38 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Now then this wont hurt at all...*pulls out the bone-fixer tool*

11:05:40 PM TKirr: ::manages to get off fifteen seconds of sputtering phaser arcs before it goes gray and two more torpedoes before Case's tube reads empty::

11:05:50 PM MisterBoxingBear: Chaka> +Harper+ We've hit this bastard pretty hard, right?  I bet if we all fall into formation and hit their shields in one spot with everything we've got, a single fighter with all power to their forward shields could actually pentrate it.  I wanna see how strong their damn hull is.

11:05:59 PM Charity Suite: Patient 3>::looks at Roxy and passes out from fear::

11:06:21 PM LtCmdrBusard: +Battle Bridge+ Got a couple more power links connected. Phasers are at 15 percent.

11:06:22 PM Jusstin Case: [No, I had to go commando.]

11:06:34 PM Charity Suite: (Tease)

11:06:40 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Chaka+ Stupid, yes, but indeed cold. +Sharks+ Form up on my wing, direct all fire to the coordinates I'm sending.

11:06:45 PM Charity Suite: (Er, I mean ... Ewwwww!)

11:07:09 PM VAdm Blackthorne: That's all we have? ::loops back around to keep the poor saucer out of the line of fire::

11:07:10 PM TKirr: ::thanks Busard mentally and picks a target for the renewed phasers::

11:07:27 PM TKirr: It was. Hold on, I think the Sharks are up to something.

11:07:29 PM Charity Suite: (::laughing::  I love this character.  She's so ... earthy)

11:07:51 PM MisterBoxingBear: Chaka> He isn't going to doddle in following his own idea.  He immediately takes his position, and awaits the completed formation to unload.

11:07:59 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Oh for petes sake...*fixes bones up and the liver too while shes at it, shakes patient awake* ...all done. Head on down to the holodeck and find a place to rest.

11:08:31 PM Charity Suite: P3> Uhh ... ::pats herself::  Am I in one piece?

11:08:58 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Yes, and you're also probably fit for duty.

11:09:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::as the collected Sharks form up and begin pounding the single spot on the cruiser's shields, she prepares for another flight over a hull::

11:09:13 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Up to what, exactly?

11:09:16 PM Charity Suite: P3> (w) Doctor Carre, your othe rdoctor is ... unorthodox.

11:09:17 PM TKirr: +Case+ T'Kirr to Lieutenant Case, got any more torpedoes down there?

11:09:37 PM TKirr: ::zooms the main viewer on the Sharks' activities::

11:09:53 PM Jusstin Case: +T'Kirr+ Possibly ... a lot of them look damaged ... they may not operate::

11:10:02 PM TKirr: (Sharks on the far cruiser or one of the two?)

11:10:03 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::figures out what they're up to:: That reeks of Chaka's idea.

11:10:05 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Far)

11:10:09 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Feels as though she is now playing a very annoyingly important version of Operation:: Urgh.

11:10:14 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Connect connect connect::

11:10:22 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Yes, but shes generally harmless.

11:10:32 PM Jusstin Case: +T'Kirr+  Give it a shot, so to speak.

11:10:39 PM Charity Suite: ::comes back from her tea break::  Y'all could learn a thing er two from mah Aunt TillieMay.  Now she could make some sweet tea that would curl yer hair an' light yer barbecue!

11:10:42 PM Jusstin Case: ::continues helping the flunkies push 'em in::

11:10:44 PM MisterBoxingBear: Chaka> ::Opens up with EVERYTHING.::  Yes!  This is Ushaan!  This is vengeance!

11:10:45 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::comes back around::

11:11:01 PM TKirr: ::looks over her pitiful weapon complement:: I don't have enough to do anything meaningful to either of these two cruisers.

11:11:30 PM Charity Suite: (Wait ... that's not the southern way they talk about a grill you cook on, is it?)

11:11:31 PM DrRoxanneCarre: That tea isnt supposed to taste good. Its medicine.

11:11:34 PM VAdm Blackthorne: If we can't launch torpedos, beam some out into space near their hull. We'll detonate them with phaser fire.

11:12:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (We call it a grill!)

11:12:00 PM Jusstin Case: (:-D)

11:12:02 PM Charity Suite: Ah don't know what y'all put in that there tea, but Ah 'bout choked.

11:12:16 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Dont ask.

11:12:20 PM Charity Suite: (You do not)

11:12:29 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Sharks+ There's the opening, I'm going in!

11:12:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Well I do :(  )

11:12:38 PM TKirr: ::nods and studies the cruiser's flight paths::

11:13:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::charges the cruiser and hopes she doesn't bounce off the shields::

11:13:52 PM MisterBoxingBear: Chaka> ::Grins as he once again guns the accelerator at Harper's comm::  What's the Earth saying, Firefly?  Last one there...

11:14:02 PM Charity Suite: ::doesn't ask, but really, really wants to::

11:14:20 PM TKirr: ::predicts the slower cruiser's path and beams a stack of three torpedoes the flunkies aren't near into space and targets them with Atlantis' failing phasers::

11:14:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Sharks+ Hell if I know, I usually get those wrong.

11:14:23 PM Charity Suite: How's things goin' down on th' spare office?

11:14:35 PM Jusstin Case: +T'Kirr+ How's it going?

11:14:43 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::breaks through the shielding and skims the hull, firing all sorts of nasty weapons::

11:14:56 PM LtCmdrBusard: Sid> +Sharks+ Silly humans. ::Provides cover for the other two.::

11:15:16 PM Charity Suite: ::absently setting a broken ankle and doing the humming for the bone regen unit::

11:15:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The Cruiser reacts like it's covered in bees.

11:15:33 PM Charity Suite: Patient 4>::screams and passes out::

11:15:49 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Which one? The holodeck should be populated by now. I had everyone that was ambulatory moved there from the trauma center.

11:15:51 PM Charity Suite: ::looks down::  Drama queen.

11:16:02 PM Jusstin Case: (::winces:: I think I need to reschedule my physical.)

11:16:03 PM MisterBoxingBear: Chaka> :: Follows her in and releases rather than launches anothert two torpedoes, thus providing him a crucial fraction of a second needed to escape the blast radius before it washes over the Orion cruiser's hull.::

11:16:07 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> About that time Atlantis takes an unlucky barrage of fire that blows a few holes in the saucer and heavily shakes the stardrive section.

11:16:24 PM Charity Suite: Ahhhhh!!  ::tumbles as they get shaken::

11:16:31 PM Jusstin Case: ::whacks his head on a low-hanging beam::

11:16:36 PM Jusstin Case: Oww ... !

11:16:38 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Damage report!

11:16:44 PM TKirr: ::is about to reply to Case when everything goes shakey::

11:16:46 PM Charity Suite: Dammit, there goes th' rest of mah tea.  Whatta shame.

11:17:01 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::pushed away from his console and it explodes::

11:17:12 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Nice, go back and fill it up and finish the dose.

11:17:22 PM Charity Suite: ::sees Patient 4 has rebroken his ankle::  Wow, not yer day, dude.

11:17:36 PM DrRoxanneCarre: We have a few minutes before the latest casualties start arriving.

11:17:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The cruiser that the Sharks are harassing goes to warp, knocking the fighters skimming the hull tumbling away.

11:18:11 PM Charity Suite: Here, ya wanna finish this guy up while Ah go gag down whatever yer callin' tea?

11:18:14 PM MisterBoxingBear: Chaka> Cowards!  Whorse sons!  Targ fuckers!

11:18:35 PM Charity Suite: (Chaka needs a Xanax)

11:18:44 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::fights to regain control of the Boudica:: +Sharks+ This is Firefly, form up and target cruiser Bravo.

11:18:46 PM Jusstin Case: (Wow.  What language.)

11:18:46 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::gets up and stumbles around, seeing double, heads back over to where the engineering console was but the screen is off and sparking::

11:18:47 PM TKirr: ::recovers, pulling from the madly-scrolling readouts:: Severe damage to decks one through seven, starboard and forward.

11:18:53 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Sure, no problem.

11:19:10 PM Charity Suite: ::goes to gag down another half glass of "tea"::

11:19:14 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::slides over to the next console... it still partially works and begins to tap commands::

11:19:38 PM Charity Suite: We're gonna have more party guests after that, Ah'm guessin'.

11:19:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Prepare to initiate emergency saucer separation on my mark.

11:20:15 PM TKirr: ::nods in solemn agreement and readies separation::

11:20:28 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::hears saucer separation but there's a ringing in his ears, hopes that the saucer separation protocols still work...::

11:20:31 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::checks warp engine status, sees it green and readies::

11:21:00 PM Charity Suite: ::looks as the door opens and more people get carried in::  Yep.  We need ta order more cole slaw fer this party.

11:21:13 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Ouch ouch ouch. Percy hit her head with that one.:: That...isn't...good. +Battle Bridge+ Hey, could I get Carter down here? I'm gonna need some help after all.

11:21:20 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::brings Atlantis around to face behind them:: I'm going to give a one second burst of warp one, let the saucer go during that.

11:22:03 PM Jusstin Case: Ohh ...

11:22:10 PM Jusstin Case: ::regains conciousness::

11:22:15 PM Charity Suite: ::thinks about writing her boss up for 'cruel and unusual punishment' after that tea episode::

11:22:18 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Right, and see if you can get replication to up the amount of pain meds, etc they're putting out.

11:22:20 PM TKirr: ::frowns:: During warp?

11:22:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Inertia will carry it away from the battle. Here goes.

11:22:50 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::jumps to warp::

11:23:01 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::can hear Percy's voice, but not really focused on it or anything else around him, still disoriented closes his eyes and sits down::

11:23:18 PM TKirr: ::disengages saucer clamps::

11:23:23 PM Charity Suite: Hmm.  Ah gotta call Engineerin', th' replicator's fritzin'.

11:23:32 PM TKirr: Saucer separation complete.

11:23:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::hits the brakes and wheels around to return to the fight::

11:23:50 PM Jusstin Case: +Battle Bridge+  Ugh, did I miss anything?

11:23:55 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The saucer careens away, falling out of warp but with enough momentum to make it a couple of LY away.

11:24:25 PM TKirr: ::takes a moment to look over her shoulder at Carter:: Mr. Carter?

11:24:35 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::Closing on the second cruiser, sees Atlantis disappear then warp back in sans-saucer:: That last volley must have hurt.

11:24:40 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::staring blankly:: What?

11:24:49 PM Charity Suite: +Ryan+ Hey Ryan.  It's Charity.  Ryan?

11:25:21 PM TKirr: Percy needs you down there. Are you up for it?

11:25:51 PM Charity Suite: ::also closing a big ol' gash on the side of one crewman::

11:26:05 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::grabs the side of the console and stands up:: I think the...thing...exploded. ::shakes his head:: Maybe...

11:26:19 PM Charity Suite: Ah could make this look like a butterfly ... sorta.

11:26:32 PM Charity Suite: Patient 5 >::screams and passes out::

11:26:33 PM TKirr: +Case+ Keep up the torpedo loading, Mr. Case. We've got fifty percent less ship to move around now and are looking to finish this fight.

11:26:37 PM LtCmdrBusard: (lmao)

11:26:46 PM Charity Suite: Ah'll take that as a 'no'.

11:27:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Carter, get to sickbay if you need to, engineering if you don't.

11:27:23 PM Charity Suite: Hey, Boss ... yer gonna be proud at all th' sedatives Ah'm savin'

11:27:24 PM Jusstin Case: +T'Kirr+ ::still groggy:: Aye-aye. ... Wait, what happened to the other half?

11:27:42 PM Charity Suite: +Carter+ Ryan?  You okay?

11:27:47 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::heads toward the battle bridge door:: I think I'll go to sickbay... ::opens the door and heads out and walks towards the turbo lift::

11:28:11 PM EnsRyanCarter: +Charity+ Percy, I just need a moment, going to sickbay first... ::enters tl:: computer, medical deck.

11:28:21 PM Charity Suite: (Coming to SickBay?  You are a brave man.)

11:28:26 PM TKirr: +Case+ Out of harm's way, what's left of it, as long as we keep these Orions distracted with some more torpedoes.

11:29:05 PM Jusstin Case: +T'Kirr+ Er, right ... ::continues polishing the ol' torpedoes::

11:29:34 PM Charity Suite: (Shut up,  Stepanik)

11:30:00 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Hey that Admiral Grahamanhamham is on the phone for ya)

11:30:02 PM MisterBoxingBear: Chaka> Damn, we need more freaking firepower.  These guys just don't die fast enough.  We need-

11:30:05 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *Steadily works through patients trying to not think of all the forms shes going to have to fill out*

11:30:36 PM LtCmdrBusard: ::Still reeling a little, Percy tries to focus on the circuit board o' doom before her, and continues to work.::

11:30:39 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::exits the TL into sickbay, feeling a bit better... the ringing has subsided, bit of a pain in his arm and leg, feels like he can think clearer again, looks at the chaos in sickbay:: Holy cow...

11:30:41 PM MisterBoxingBear: Chaka> ::Trails off as he sees Atlantis' quantums floating in space.::  ...we need a planet full of sex bots!  Maybe with blackjack!

11:31:03 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Case I think your repairman is here.

11:31:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Sharks+ ...

11:31:19 PM LtCmdrBusard: Sid> +Sharks+ Sounds good to me!

11:31:20 PM DrRoxanneCarre: ...it looks like he needs a bit of repair before he goes to work though.

11:31:36 PM Charity Suite: ::sees Ryan::  Heya ... whoah, dude, yer pupils are totally not the same.

11:31:55 PM EnsRyanCarter: Yeah... man... totally. I think the station I was working at exploded.

11:31:56 PM MisterBoxingBear: Chaka> ::Seeing no planet of sex bots, he contents himself with grabbing a quantum with his tractor beam.  Then, full impulse toward the nearest cruiser.::

11:32:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::gets the idea and grabs a torpedo too::

11:32:34 PM TKirr: (Did... Charity just say "dude"? And "whoah"?)

11:32:44 PM Jusstin Case: [Whoa.]

11:32:56 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Don't take the blue pill!)

11:33:00 PM Charity Suite: (and 'totally')

11:33:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::now that he doesn't have to protect the saucer, he brings the ship barreling forward in an attack run::

11:33:52 PM TKirr: ::tracks down the torps she left and sees one moving, then perks a brow::

11:34:01 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::to Charity:: I need to get down to engineering... to help Charity... or Percy... whichever one your not...

11:34:04 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Everything we have on that target.

11:34:24 PM TKirr: Aye, Admiral.

11:34:46 PM Charity Suite: Uhmmm ... Ah think y'all could take a minnit an' sit down.

11:34:52 PM Charity Suite: Lemme take a look atcha.

11:35:05 PM TKirr: ::focuses the targeting computer::

11:35:05 PM Charity Suite: ::pushes him onto a bed::

11:35:08 PM MisterBoxingBear: ::Releasing the torpedo, Chaka applies reverse thrusters for approximately a full second.  This slows him down enough that when he shuts them down, he's far enough behind the torpedo to safely come in behind the blast and immediately follow it up with all of his own firepower.::

11:35:25 PM MisterBoxingBear: Chaka> +Sharks+ Any of you sorry sons of bitches want to ride this shuttle, now's the time!]

11:35:32 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::does likewise, detonating her torpedo::

11:35:40 PM LtCmdrBusard: +Battle Bridge+ Phasers now at 35 percent...or maybe it's the sewage disposals. Either way, you have something shootable. Ow.

11:35:47 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::falls over onto a bed and sits up, or leans up:: that doesn't feel so good when I do this...

11:36:15 PM Charity Suite: ::picks up a light thingy and whacks it on the side of the table; it blinks on::  There.

11:36:34 PM Jusstin Case: ::seeing pretty colors, but keeps loading torpedoes::

11:36:34 PM TKirr: +Busard+ Thank you. It will be put to good use in about two seconds.

11:36:39 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The cruiser reels from the two QT blasts.

11:36:41 PM Charity Suite: Lay back down, Bright Eyes.  Lemme see whut's goin' on in there.

11:36:56 PM Jusstin Case: ::to himself:: You know, I don't think I signed up for this.

11:36:58 PM VAdm Blackthorne: (Five minute warning)

11:37:00 PM EnsRyanCarter: ::lays down and closes his eyes::

11:37:21 PM Charity Suite: Patient 6> ::screams and passes out for no reason at all, probably just being trendy::

11:37:33 PM EnsRyanCarter: There's a lot of screaming down here.

11:37:47 PM Charity Suite: Really?  Ah hadn't noticed.  Hol' still.

11:37:49 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::comes about on the wounded cruiser to bring weapons to bear::

11:38:03 PM Charity Suite: ::shines the light into Ryan's ey, then looks in the other one::

11:38:10 PM DrRoxanneCarre: *moves her foot as the patient falls* Doesnt look too serious.

11:38:20 PM Charity Suite: ::the other eye has two e's::

11:38:20 PM EnsRyanCarter: Yeah... winces, that's pretty bright.

11:38:28 PM TKirr: (rofl)

11:39:04 PM Charity Suite: Whacked yerself pretty good, didn't ya?

11:39:28 PM TKirr: ::lets loose the remaining of Case's torps and follows with full power to forward phasers::

11:39:39 PM Charity Suite: ::gets a functioning tricorder, scans Ryan::

11:39:48 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> ::unloads the last of her microtorps along with the Atlantis's attack::

11:39:50 PM EnsRyanCarter: I suppose I did...

11:40:05 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The unfortunate cruiser crumples and explodes.

11:40:07 PM EnsRyanCarter: is there something you can just shoot me up with and I can just...get going?

11:40:18 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Harper> +Sharks+ Good work, one left!

11:40:19 PM TKirr: One down!

11:40:19 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Claire blood!)

11:40:25 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Give him Claire blood!)

11:40:26 PM Jusstin Case: (Um, ew?)

11:40:32 PM Charity Suite: I only ask a'cause o' the big ol' purple swollen bruise on yer forehaid.

11:40:33 PM EnsRyanCarter: (Claire Blood?)

11:40:42 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Claire, the super healing girl from Heroes?)

11:40:42 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ACTION> The remaining cruiser turns and warps away.

11:40:43 PM MisterBoxingBear: (Heroes reference.)

11:40:49 PM LtCmdrBusard: (Her blood makes everything better)

11:40:55 PM EnsRyanCarter: (ohh.... that Claire)

11:40:55 PM MisterBoxingBear: (My Rachel is awesome.)

11:41:03 PM LtCmdrBusard: (:-D Aww, thanks honey.)

11:41:14 PM EnsRyanCarter: (sorry, stopped watching Heroes midway through the season)

11:41:30 PM Charity Suite: (But then he'll be all PMS-y and stuff, and his chest will get bumpy)

11:41:39 PM TKirr: (Poor Claire, turned into a regular medical supply depot =/)

11:41:40 PM MisterBoxingBear: (I'll pick Torchwood back up if you finish the season.)

11:42:03 PM EnsRyanCarter: (hmm... I don't know if that's a fair trade...)

11:42:05 PM VAdm Blackthorne: ::sighs in relief:: Negative targets.

11:42:07 PM MisterBoxingBear: (Emo Jack Harkness and all.)

11:42:30 PM Charity Suite: ::swipes a cold pack from a passing aide and gently puts it on Ryan's forehead::

11:42:40 PM EnsRyanCarter: (Heroes needs some new writers)

11:42:46 PM VAdm Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM

11:44:38 PM LtCmdrBusard: Also, I'm gonna need a medic.

11:45:31 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Now or can it wait till next week? ;-)

11:45:36 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Many of us will. :)

11:45:37 PM Jusstin Case: My brain hurts.

11:45:57 PM TKirr: I has a sleepy.

11:46:07 PM LtCmdrBusard: I has a dead.

11:46:10 PM LtCmdrBusard: He's a cute dead.

11:46:27 PM LtCmdrBusard: But he always asks for brains. Do you know how hard it is to keep a fresh supply of those?

11:46:53 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Brrrraaaaaaaaains

11:47:00 PM Charity Suite: If you think about it ...

11:47:00 PM TKirr: Mm I would think it harder to find a place for the rest of it.

11:47:05 PM Charity Suite: Jesus was a zombie.

11:47:16 PM Charity Suite: Think of how pissed off zombies are.

11:47:19 PM LtCmdrBusard: He was the coolest zombie ever.

11:47:22 PM VAdm Blackthorne: Hm, true.

11:47:30 PM Charity Suite: I don't wanna be around when Jesus comes back again.

11:47:32 PM EnsRyanCarter: sweet zombie jesus

11:47:41 PM LtCmdrBusard: I do! I just want to be on the other side by then.

11:47:45 PM LtCmdrBusard: ...Mwehehe

11:47:50 PM TKirr: lool

11:48:55 PM TKirr: Btw Aion is way cool

11:48:55 PM Charity Suite: Sweet Zombie Jesus ... that's awesome.  I need to make a character with that name.

11:49:06 PM Charity Suite: But it's probably against the EULA somewhere.

11:49:13 PM TKirr: Probably.

11:49:21 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I want Jesus El Savior Chrrrist!

11:49:21 PM EnsRyanCarter: or someone already has it.

11:50:13 PM TKirr: All right, working way too much, so gotta sleep... see you all for next Sim Tuesday. =)

11:51:42 PM DrRoxanneCarre: Night guys!

11:51:47 PM MisterBoxingBear: Night!

11:51:51 PM VAdm Blackthorne: I've never seen Wreaking Havoc in Sickbay, the movie.
