(9:58:48 PM) Percy [] entered the room.
(9:59:00 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya Doc, Hiya Percy
(9:59:04 PM) Percy: Yo.
(9:59:12 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Hiya
(9:59:42 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Is the party still going on, or has the description simply not been changed from last time?
(9:59:50 PM) CharitySuite [Mibbit@] entered the room.
(9:59:55 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: The topic hasn't changed.
(9:59:58 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya Charity!
(10:00:12 PM) JusstinCase: Charity!
(10:00:15 PM) CharitySuite: Evenin', all y'all
(10:00:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne has changed the topic to: The topic hasn't changed.
(10:00:35 PM) JusstinCase: Does that mean we still get to party? ::hopeful::
(10:00:46 PM) CharitySuite: Jusstin Darlin'!
(10:01:10 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Time to start the new plot. :)
(10:01:15 PM) CharitySuite: :: still washing off the pastel pinkpaint used in last week's redecorating caper::
(10:01:30 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I must wonder how Fiasco liked his new wallpaper.
(10:05:50 PM) RyanCarter: it's awesome, he'll love it.
(10:06:44 PM) ColDougMcKnight: So we're leaving the station tonight?
(10:06:48 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Yep.
(10:07:00 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Heh. This should be interesting.
(10:07:14 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Just got a text from T'Kirr, she'll be a bit late.
(10:07:29 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Kay.
(10:07:44 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Don't we kind of need her to start, since it's her plot?
(10:08:01 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Technically.
(10:08:12 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Though we can get underway, at least.
(10:08:15 PM) RyanCarter: is this that thing with that wing thing?
(10:08:18 PM) Percy: I'm willing to wait, personally.
(10:08:34 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Oh, I'm definitely willing to wait.
(10:09:51 PM) CharitySuite: So, just what does this new crewmember look like? I can't figure it out.
(10:10:00 PM) Percy: Draconic, I think.
(10:10:03 PM) JusstinCase: Chocobo.
(10:10:21 PM) ColDougMcKnight: T'Kirr actually drew a picture of it. I might still have it.
(10:10:31 PM) CharitySuite: Is it from Aion?
(10:10:54 PM) CharitySuite: Ohhhh, a chokobo!
(10:11:03 PM) CharitySuite: ::humming the chokobo song::
(10:11:38 PM) RyanCarter: I heard you can make hawt chicks in Aion
(10:11:46 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Total lies.
(10:11:47 PM) CharitySuite: Wasn't sure if it was a dog, from the article
(10:11:59 PM) RyanCarter: although that's still not much of a draw to get me to part money for an MMO
(10:12:18 PM) CharitySuite: Since you can draw your own hawt ckicks
(10:12:19 PM) RyanCarter: what, Gabe from Penny Arcade never lies!
(10:12:25 PM) CharitySuite: With wings
(10:12:33 PM) RyanCarter: that's true, I can draw my own hawt chicks.
(10:12:39 PM) RyanCarter: I'm not so much into the wings
(10:12:49 PM) Percy: Because then they can fly away? :-P
(10:12:54 PM) CharitySuite: ::totally used the "I want you" mug this weekedn::
(10:13:02 PM) LtThors [] entered the room.
(10:13:08 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya ulic
(10:13:17 PM) Percy: Heh, noice. Hoy Ulic.
(10:13:35 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: They dont fly all the time, and you die if you run out of flight time, on the other hand, I did kill someone today! SCORE!
(10:13:45 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Unpossible.
(10:14:01 PM) CharitySuite: The PvP aspect never flipped my switch.
(10:14:12 PM) LtThors: Hiya
(10:14:20 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I retired from PVP almost a year ago, it's bad for my blood pressure.
(10:14:44 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I figure I'll die alot, but it doesnt cost anything so...yay!
(10:14:51 PM) JusstinCase: I experimented with PVP, but then I moved up to harder stuff, like LSD.
(10:15:06 PM) CharitySuite: Never got into 'haha, I can beat you up'.
(10:15:11 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (dying doesnt...cost)
(10:15:16 PM) Percy: Yeah...I think I'm allergic to MMOs, unfortunately. They LOOK so cool, but then three months go by and I realize I've only signed on four times, tops.
(10:15:25 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I just paint my boss's face on the other toon.
(10:15:55 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I'm trying to pry myself away from WoW to finish the Fallout 3 and Mass Effect DLCs
(10:16:10 PM) LtThors: 2 great games btw.
(10:16:25 PM) JusstinCase: BBQ is good.
(10:16:44 PM) Percy: I've heard that Fallout 3 is good. Haven't played it yet though.
(10:16:47 PM) JusstinCase: Oh, and there's those MP3s I listen to.
(10:16:49 PM) LtThors: That's funny cause I just finished those and am back to WoW.
(10:16:54 PM) Percy: Lol.
(10:17:08 PM) JusstinCase: I used to have one of those CRT monitors.
(10:17:11 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: If you start playing Fallout, we'll lose you from onths.
(10:17:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: months
(10:17:32 PM) Percy: Nah. But the Ren Faire would, and that would be bad.
(10:17:48 PM) Percy: Oo! Also! I might be squiring for a jousting troupe in a few months! SO PUMPED!
(10:17:51 PM) RyanCarter: Fallout 3 is awesome.
(10:18:13 PM) CharitySuite: That sounds fun, Rachel!
(10:18:50 PM) Percy: I know!! And after a couple of years I might be jousting myself. KICK. ASS.
(10:19:17 PM) CharitySuite: Oh wow!
(10:19:23 PM) Percy: *Glee*
(10:19:52 PM) Percy: And yes, I bet Fallout 3 is awesome. I'm thinking I'll rent it in the next couple weeks to try it out.
(10:20:11 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Nice knowing you :(
(10:20:40 PM) Percy: Yeah, well, at least my slow and sure death will be fun.
(10:20:48 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Watch out for the raiders.
(10:20:52 PM) RyanCarter: don't forget to get all the expansion packs. :)
(10:21:08 PM) RyanCarter: I'm getting Uncharted 2 sometime this week.
(10:21:10 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: We should have our XO soon, though I did tell her husband to tell her to slow down.
(10:21:13 PM) RyanCarter: that game looks amazing.
(10:21:14 PM) Percy: AWESOME.
(10:21:45 PM) Percy: It does. It's on our house's buy list right now. But we just got Brutal Legends, so... :-P
(10:21:46 PM) RyanCarter: I got to see some of the jungle level last week. Finally a game that's starting to show the ps3's power.
(10:22:09 PM) RyanCarter: yeah it was released at the company store today
(10:22:31 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I can't wait for Dragon Age
(10:22:38 PM) Percy: Cool.
(10:23:00 PM) Percy: Dragon Age? I only just saw the CAD comic about that. What's it about?
(10:23:07 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Bioware RPG
(10:23:10 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Nuff said.
(10:23:19 PM) LtThors: Word.
(10:23:24 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Critera for a good game.
(10:23:33 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: A) Is it an RPG made by Bioware? If yes, end here.
(10:24:14 PM) ColDougMcKnight: I DO like their stuff, it's true.
(10:24:25 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Never played Mass Effect, but KOTOR was made of win.
(10:24:44 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Mass Effect was KoTOR3 with the serial numbers filed off.
(10:24:52 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Fallout and um...that other one...
(10:25:19 PM) RyanCarter: I want Mass Effect 2
(10:25:27 PM) RyanCarter: that's going to be awesome.
(10:25:36 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Oh yes, yes it will be.
(10:25:37 PM) RyanCarter: need more sci-fi in RPG games
(10:26:16 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: baldurs gate (I had to look it up)
(10:28:25 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Oh, and New Super Mario Bros Wii
(10:28:31 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: That looks really fun
(10:28:45 PM) RyanCarter: yeah that'll be some fun coop
(10:28:53 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Baldur's Gate was Bioware?
(10:28:57 PM) RyanCarter: finally a reason to turn on the wii
(10:28:58 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Yep
(10:28:59 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Competetive co-op returns again, where you can use Yoshi to eat someone and spit them into a piranha plant to get ahead
(10:29:07 PM) Percy: Ugh. Won't they let the Mario games just die?
(10:29:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Because they print money
(10:29:15 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Nice. Never played the original, but I had lots of fun with Shadows of Amn.
(10:29:31 PM) RyanCarter: Nintendo'll keep churning out mario games, but they're classic.
(10:29:35 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: *pets her original version*
(10:29:48 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Yeah, they're almost always fun, and they each make a gajillion dollars, so they'll keep coming
(10:30:12 PM) RyanCarter: as much as I liked LittleBigPlanet the platforming for that game blew ass. So Mario should fit the ticket.
(10:30:18 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (I have the original nintendo and super nintendos and tons of games)
(10:31:22 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Harvest moon!
(10:31:50 PM) Percy: Hee!
(10:32:03 PM) Percy: I mean, uh, I only play manly games. Ahem hem hem.
(10:32:14 PM) Percy: (I love Harvest Moon!)
(10:32:22 PM) RyanCarter: I played a ton of Animal Crossing
(10:32:44 PM) RyanCarter: on DS
(10:32:47 PM) Percy: Brb, need to try something quick.
(10:33:02 PM) RyanCarter: Nintendo can't sucker me into buying a high res DS game for their Wii
(10:33:07 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Actually one game I miss is Preppie II, ya cant even find an emulator version. Pushing a lawnmower was never so much fun.
(10:33:45 PM) RyanCarter: I find that appalling that Wii Play will beat out GTA: San Andreas as the highest selling game in the last ten years.
(10:33:55 PM) RyanCarter: It's amazing Nintendo can sell tech demos.
(10:33:58 PM) Percy: Back.
(10:34:07 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Gameplay > Graphics
(10:34:13 PM) Percy: Also, ew Wii PLay.
(10:34:17 PM) Percy: *Play.
(10:34:43 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Wii Play wasn't a game. Wii play was a ten dollar extra that you got for buying a wiimote.
(10:34:53 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: And for ten bucks, it was pretty fun.
(10:35:08 PM) RyanCarter: I still didn't buy it.
(10:35:21 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I did, wiimotes were in short supply about that time. :V
(10:35:43 PM) RyanCarter: I played Wii Sports Resorts, thanks for giving us the motion controller we wanted three years ago.
(10:36:07 PM) RyanCarter: I've yet to see anyone do anything interesting with the motion controller.
(10:36:16 PM) RyanCarter: and the Wii market's flooded with crap now.
(10:36:21 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Metroid Prime 3 was pretty good
(10:36:41 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: So was Twilight Princess, but I'd rather have played it with the Ocarina of Time controls
(10:36:45 PM) RyanCarter: I don't dispute that Nintendo's products are bad. In fact, you buy a Nintendo console to buy Nintendo games.
(10:36:51 PM) RyanCarter: 3rd party games are mostly junk.
(10:36:53 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: True
(10:37:16 PM) RyanCarter: and 3rd party products have flooded the market with "casual, party" type games.
(10:37:23 PM) RyanCarter: cause everyone wanted to cash in
(10:37:29 PM) RyanCarter: and now Wii sales have dropped.
(10:37:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Yeah, there's a ton of shovelware
(10:38:06 PM) CdrTKirr [Mibbit@] entered the room.
(10:38:09 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Last thing I bought was House of the Dead: Overkill
(10:38:12 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: That was pretty fun!
(10:38:14 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hi T'Kirr!
(10:38:15 PM) RyanCarter: half the stuff I read from TGS had japanese developers talking about a Wii HD, the lifetime of the console seems to be limited.
(10:38:22 PM) Percy: Hey T'Kirr!
(10:38:25 PM) LtThors: House of the Dead: Overkill was just plain over the top.
(10:38:28 PM) RyanCarter: Hey T'Kirr
(10:38:52 PM) CdrTKirr: So sorry, dinner theater took longer than I expected. -.-
(10:39:01 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: OK, let's get going.
(10:41:47 PM) CdrTKirr: :: TWEEEET, breathlessly:: Attention!
(10:41:51 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::AA::
(10:41:51 PM) JusstinCase: ::AA::
(10:41:56 PM) LtThors: ::AA::
(10:41:58 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: aa ::
(10:42:37 PM) VAdmBlackthorne has changed the topic to: The repairs to Atlantis are complete, and we have our departure orders. All crew have been recalled from shore leave and preparations are underway to launch.
(10:42:45 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Questions?
(10:42:56 PM) CharitySuite: *******************************//////////
(10:43:06 PM) CharitySuite: (sorry, kitten keyboard attack)
(10:43:08 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Charity? Or maybe your cat?
(10:43:23 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hi Sundae. :)
(10:43:25 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: OK then, let's roll.
(10:43:27 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(10:43:28 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(10:43:31 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(10:43:36 PM) CdrHarper [CdrHarper@] entered the room.
(10:43:48 PM) RyanCarter: ::in engineering, doing the kind of things that engineers do to computers::
(10:44:20 PM) RyanCarter: ::managed to also paint Fiasco's quarters pink::

(10:44:42 PM) CharitySuite: +Ryan+ Hey Ryan, how didja git th' paint offa yer cuticles?
(10:44:43 PM) CdrTKirr: :: on the Bridge, having arrived early to make sure departure checks are being done properly ::
(10:44:50 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: in the flag office, sends off a request to Zuriyev, then looks over readiness reports ::
(10:45:12 PM) RyanCarter: +Charity+ I haven't really done it yet.
(10:46:05 PM) CharitySuite: ::and the entire ship hears a pained howl as Fiasco sees the Hello Kitty job on his quarters::
(10:46:05 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: gets up and enters the bridge :: T'Kirr, launch readiness status?
(10:46:20 PM) LtThors: :: Running daily PT with marines ::
(10:46:55 PM) LtSyvek [Mibbit@] entered the room.
(10:47:20 PM) RyanCarter: +Charity+ I even left a fiberoptic camera in his quarters so we could see the pained look on his face
(10:47:27 PM) LtSyvek: :: running with Thors ::
(10:47:27 PM) CharitySuite: Ensign Fiasco>::blaming Jusstin::
(10:47:53 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks up from a report :: Most crew are aboard. We are waiting on a few confirmations.
(10:48:13 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Stands at the bridge, smiling slightly as he runs a diagnostic at his station.:: I can tell you this. Tactically, we're in better shape than we've ever been.
(10:48:18 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Get the stragglers rounded up, we push off in five minutes.
(10:48:21 PM) JusstinCase: Jusstin> ::painted Fiasco's room pink, with flower-print borders::
(10:48:24 PM) RyanCarter: +Charity+ The software'll motion detected him and based on his facial expression it'll trim the video out and post it on Youtube.
(10:48:30 PM) JusstinCase: [Dah, that's "painted."]
(10:48:35 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns to McKnight :: Elaborate?
(10:48:46 PM) CharitySuite: +Ryan+ That's awesome!
(10:48:57 PM) Kuari [Mibbit@] entered the room.
(10:49:29 PM) RyanCarter: +Charity+ Isn't it though. Hopefully the program will terminate afterwards and the camera will go dead, otherwise a lot of weird videos will appear online... especially if he does... uh... unsavory things in his quarters.
(10:49:32 PM) LtSyvek: :: to Thors :: Lieutenant, you are from a cold climate, I assume?
(10:49:34 PM) Kuari: :: enters the docking bay with a duffel on her back, looking lost ::
(10:49:35 PM) Percy: :: In Engineering, reading the latest reports on the ship's systems::
(10:49:52 PM) ColDougMcKnight: The engineers on Vinland repaired the deflector dish and re-routed power back through the usual relays. But they didn't remove the new relays that our people laid. I guess someone thought it was a pretty slick bit of improv. In an emergency, we've still got that shield backup ready.
(10:50:03 PM) RyanCarter: CMeyers> ::standing by Carter:: Like what?
(10:50:07 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: That is some bloody good news.
(10:50:10 PM) LtThors: :: to LtSyvek :: Only to some. ::laughs::
(10:50:39 PM) LtSyvek: To any Vulcan, I would think.
(10:50:54 PM) LtThors: What is Vulcan like?
(10:51:15 PM) JusstinCase: [Surprisingly drama-filled.]
(10:51:32 PM) CharitySuite: +Ryan+ Ewwww, Ah don't wanna think whut he'd be doin' in his bunk, lookin' up at th' pink unicorns on his ceilin' ...
(10:51:36 PM) JusstinCase: [What with all the pon-farrs and koonutkalifees, or whatever.]
(10:51:38 PM) LtSyvek: It is, by your standards, hot and arid.
(10:52:08 PM) LtThors left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).
(10:52:19 PM) LtSyvek: (Too hot, apparently.)
(10:52:22 PM) LtThors [] entered the room.
(10:52:32 PM) ColDougMcKnight: It is, sir. Also, unless you think we'll be needing to shoot our way out of here, permission to hand my station over to a second? I've got a whole mess of replacements running around below decks, and I'd like to meet them properly straightaway.
(10:52:43 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Permission granted, Colonel.
(10:53:07 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: finishes up her morning ride and hits the showers ::
(10:53:46 PM) CdrHarper: :: arrives on the bridge :: Permission to return to duty, Admiral.
(10:54:14 PM) LtThors: I think I may want to go there someday. I spent most of my life in Iceland on earth.
(10:54:27 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Nods, punches in the call for said second, and heads for the lift.:: Thank you, sir.
(10:54:29 PM) LtSyvek: You may find the heat therapeutic. Many do.
(10:54:50 PM) RyanCarter: Carter> ::to Meyers:: Uh, like nothing. What's up?
(10:55:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: looks at Harper, then to the empty Helm console, pauses a moment as he sees the bloodbath again :: Commander... good to see you in one piece again.
(10:55:20 PM) LtThors: Does Vulcan have hot springs?
(10:55:35 PM) LtSyvek: :: turns a corner :: It does.
(10:55:59 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Enters the turbolift:: Deck 7.
(10:56:00 PM) CdrHarper: I had some good doctors. :: smiles ::
(10:56:04 PM) Kuari: :: looks up at the marine and is admitted aboard, shuffled forward as the last stragglers come aboard ::
(10:56:16 PM) RyanCarter: CMeyers> My report. ::hands him a PADD::
(10:56:16 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods :: Take your station, Commander.
(10:56:41 PM) LtThors: Soaking in hot springs are a pastime back in Iceland.
(10:56:43 PM) CdrTKirr: Admiral, all crew members are confirmed aboard and accounted for.
(10:56:45 PM) CdrHarper: :: sits in the brand new Helm chair since the last one was shot up ::
(10:57:06 PM) CdrTKirr: :: gives Harper a welcoming look as she takes her place ::

(10:57:58 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sits quietly in the center seat :: Contact the dockmaster and request permission to launch.

(10:58:00 PM) RyanCarter: Carter> ::splays his hand out:: It's a good color don't you think?
(10:58:09 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: performs the Picard maneuver on his uniform tunic ::
(10:58:10 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Exiting the lift on deck 7, he soon comes upon Thors' group, offering a nod in greeting.::
(10:58:43 PM) RyanCarter: CMeyers> I... heard a scream from Ensign Fiasco's room. I seemed to remember the word pink being said a few times.
(10:59:04 PM) LtSyvek: And the imbibing of alcohol, from what I hear.
(10:59:09 PM) RyanCarter: Carter> Are you trying to say something?
(10:59:29 PM) RyanCarter: CMeyers> ::whispers:: How'd you hack his biometric lock?
(10:59:29 PM) LtThors: Sir. :: Orders group to doubletime and salutes ::

(11:00:30 PM) CharitySuite: +Jusstin+ Hey, we missed ya on th' party deck, whatcha doin'?
(11:00:39 PM) CdrHarper: Dockmaster has granted us clearance, sir.
(11:01:06 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Lieutenant Thors! Stop by my office later! I'd like to discuss something with you.
(11:01:11 PM) JusstinCase: +Charity+ Oh, hi, Charity! Sorry I was out making a purchase. ::grins to himself::
(11:01:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: All ashore that's going ashore.
(11:01:22 PM) Percy: (Sorry guys, I'll be right back.)
(11:01:23 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Transfer to internal power.
(11:01:29 PM) JusstinCase: +Charity+ Would you like to help me with, uh ... an interior decorating project?
(11:01:31 PM) LtThors: Yes, sir
(11:01:36 PM) RyanCarter: CMeyer> You know I was thinking, if I ran into Ensign Fiasco, say at the galley...
(11:01:57 PM) CdrTKirr: (( Carre check PM ^_^ ))
(11:02:10 PM) CdrHarper: :: engages the power transfer, which goes smoothly :: We are on internal power.
(11:02:26 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Clear all moorings.
(11:02:49 PM) CdrHarper: :: disengages Atlantis from her moorings :: We're clear.
(11:03:08 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Take us out, Kate. Thrusters only until we've cleared the doors.
(11:03:19 PM) CharitySuite: +Jusstin+ Decoratin'? Uhmmm ... anything perticular in mind?
(11:03:25 PM) CdrHarper: :: smirks to herself and slooooooooooooooooooowly backs Atlantis out of her parking spot ::
(11:03:35 PM) RyanCarter: Carter> I can show you after work.
(11:03:51 PM) RyanCarter: CMeyers> ::smiles and walks off::
(11:04:02 PM) Kuari: :: finds her quarters, drops her stuff inside, then makes her way to the Security Office ::
(11:04:13 PM) JusstinCase: +Charity+ Are you above practical jokery?
(11:04:20 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: imagines the dockmaster to be quite surprised about now ::
(11:04:27 PM) RyanCarter: Carter> +Charity+ Turpentine can remove paint right?
(11:04:41 PM) CdrHarper: :: faces the doors and creeps toward them ::
(11:04:53 PM) CharitySuite: +Ryan+ Yeah, but good luck gettin' any outta th' replicators.
(11:05:19 PM) CharitySuite: +Jusstin+ Above it? Ah should say Ah'm right in line with it!
(11:05:38 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::By the time she gets to security, she'll find McKnight already there, amidst the desks just past the entrance checkpoint, arranging with Montrose for a group briefing at 1200 for all the new blood.::

(11:06:01 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks back at him ::
(11:06:14 PM) RyanCarter: +Charity+ How about alcohol? LIke... rubbing alcohol. We really can't get any from the replicators, I'm going to be huff it.
(11:06:25 PM) RyanCarter: ((be huffing it))
(11:06:25 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: looks back at the approaching spacedoors, wishing he were flying ::
(11:06:48 PM) CdrTKirr: :: perks a brow and looks back to the main viewer ::
(11:06:58 PM) JusstinCase: +Charity+ I hoped you'd say that! I'd like to leave a little present in Fiasco's quarters. I think the room could use some redecorating.
(11:07:24 PM) CdrHarper: :: clears the spacedoors, moves to one quarter impulse along their filed flightplan until they're clear of the spacedock's controlled navigation area ::
(11:07:40 PM) Kuari: :: enters the Office and looks about, wondering which person is McKnight ::
(11:08:03 PM) RyanCarter: +Charity+ Er, I meant to say, I'm not going to be huffing it. That's probably why the replicator has it locked out...
(11:08:09 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: Dresses, touches up her hair and heads for Sickbay ::
(11:08:18 PM) CharitySuite: ::still laughing::
(11:08:19 PM) Kuari: :: asks the nearest Marine :: Excuse me, Colonel McKnight?
(11:08:23 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Looks up, a bit surprised to realize the ship just went to impulse, as one of the security monitors shows them just clearing the space doors.:: Holy damn. Were we on thrusters just now?
(11:08:39 PM) CdrHarper: We are clear and free to navigate, Admiral. Atlantis seems to be happy about it, too, she's handling like a dream.
(11:09:10 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: smiles :: Good to hear. Set a course for Outpost Mayflower, warp eight. Let her stretch her legs a bit.
(11:09:19 PM) CharitySuite: +Jusstin+ Hon, y'all gotta meet me an' Ryan fer lunch. We gots a story ta tell ya 'bout ol' Fiasco's quarters.
(11:09:35 PM) ColDougMcKnight: And looking up, Kuari's a bit hard to miss.::
(11:09:45 PM) RyanCarter: +taps+ ::lowers voice:: And Catherine... Ensign Meyers knows too. Somedays that girl needs to be less observant...
(11:09:45 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (What's her rank, by the way?)
(11:09:54 PM) Kuari: (( Sorry, 2Lt ))
(11:10:00 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (No problem.)
(11:10:11 PM) Kuari is now known as LtKuari
(11:10:27 PM) LtSyvek: :: picks back up the run alongside Thors :: Perhaps you earned a commendation for your actions against the Klingons.
(11:10:58 PM) CdrHarper: :: taps on the console :: Course and speed laid in and ready, sir.
(11:11:04 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods ::: Execute.
(11:11:05 PM) CharitySuite: +Ryan+ So, it's 'Catherine' now, is it? ::grinning, has Jusstin patched in so it's a 3-way call now::
(11:11:21 PM) CdrHarper: :: taps and Atlantis zooms off ::
(11:11:23 PM) ColDougMcKnight: The only silver leaf you'll find onboard is right here, Lieutenant. What can I do for you?
(11:11:24 PM) CdrTKirr: :: puts a hand on Blackthorne's arm momentarily before his issued order ::
(11:11:29 PM) Percy: (Back)
(11:11:34 PM) JusstinCase: +R/C+ Seems like I've missed out on a lot!
(11:11:35 PM) CdrHarper: Warp eight, engines functioning perfectly.
(11:11:44 PM) RyanCarter: +Charity, Justin+ Seriously, this again? This ::mimicking Charity's voice:: It's Catherine now is it?"
(11:12:12 PM) LtKuari: :: turns and sees McKnight, then drops her haunches and sits stiffly like a gargoyle, saluting absurdly but looking determined to do it right :: Reporting in, sir. I've just come aboard, sir.
(11:12:21 PM) LtThors: Could be the opposite. Guess I'll find in soon.
(11:12:21 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Looks like Atlantis is back to her old self again.
(11:12:43 PM) LtThors: out?
(11:12:49 PM) CdrTKirr: It appears so. I'm pleased our deflector is more... reliable as well.
(11:12:53 PM) CharitySuite: +R/J+ Hey, it's too much fun to pick on ya.
(11:13:01 PM) LtSyvek: In fact, that would be the correct word.
(11:13:34 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I believe they improved on that design with the Prometheus class, but we've upgraded to the same ability with our modifications.
(11:13:59 PM) RyanCarter: +C/J+ Har har... well she put two and two together and now she wants me to show her how we did it. Or she might tell Fisaco.
(11:14:08 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::He doesn't do much to hide a bit of confused amusement at the sight, but he doesn't speak of it, at least.:: I gathered. Find your quarters okay?
(11:14:09 PM) CdrTKirr: Fascinating. I'll have to look into it.
(11:14:27 PM) JusstinCase: +R/C+ Wait, what did you two do to Fiasco's room?
(11:14:33 PM) LtKuari: :: still stiff :: I did, sir. Everything's in order, sir.
(11:14:42 PM) CharitySuite: +R/J+ Hey, she's a hottie. I don't blame ya. We gotta show Jusstin th' video.
(11:15:35 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: T'Kirr, assemble the senior officers, along with Lieutenant Kuari, in conference room one.
(11:15:47 PM) RyanCarter: +C/J+ Yeah, she's... ::snaps out of it:: Er, let's show him the video. Uh, speaking of which where is the Ensign... of Fiascoes?
(11:15:59 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: Enters Sickbay, sees things are fairly normal, grabs coffee, moves to her desk :: Lets see what interesting today.
(11:16:25 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks to Blackthorne a moment before nodding :: At once.
(11:16:31 PM) JusstinCase: +R/C+ Sometimes I think the two of you set out to confuse me on purpose.
(11:16:37 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Please, Lieutenant. At ease. And if you don't mind my asking, what exactly is your field of concentration? I shouldn't need to ask, but I've been swamped with files pertaining to incoming crew lately.
(11:16:55 PM) CdrHarper: :: nods as she looks over the readings, almost giddy to be back on duty ::
(11:17:00 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Fir the life of me, I can't even remember if you took the Starfleet Security ordnance course.
(11:17:09 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (For)
(11:17:24 PM) LtThors: :: Heads back to security ::
(11:17:31 PM) CdrTKirr: :: stands :: +Shipwide+ Attention all senior officers. Please report to Conference Room One.
(11:18:19 PM) Percy: :: After compiling the reports she's received and making a list of projects for the day, she does a final diagnostic on the warp drive systems before whipping out the wrench.::
(11:18:24 PM) CharitySuite: ::finds nail polish remover and finally succeeds in getting the pink paint out from under her fingernails::
(11:18:42 PM) CharitySuite: +R/J+ Hey, Ryan, nail polish remover works.
(11:18:49 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Looks up such that it's clear he heard the announcement, but waits for the answer all the same. Obviously, he's not too stressed about showing a minute or two late.
(11:18:52 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::
(11:19:18 PM) JusstinCase: +R/C+ I guess the explanation will have to wait; see you all in the conference room?
(11:19:19 PM) CdrTKirr: (( Got your IM window, Mike? ))
(11:19:27 PM) Percy: (Crap. I'm sorry guys, but my computer is about to shut down and it's power cable is broken. I'll see you guys later.)

(11:19:44 PM) CdrTKirr: (( Oh yikes, sorry to hear, see you ))
(11:19:46 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Oh, sorry. Didn't see that at all. Didn't flash for some reason.)
(11:19:46 PM) RyanCarter: ((that's not good, see ya later Percy))
(11:19:52 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Erk, see ya Percy!)
(11:19:57 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: mutters about meetings, grabs her coffee and heads to CR1 ::
(11:20:03 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (See you...imminently, hun.)
(11:20:22 PM) CharitySuite: ::grins at the screen and signs off, since she has to cover for da Boss while she goes to the meeting::
(11:20:23 PM) Percy: (I'll have a new one by next week though! So I should be fine by then!)
(11:20:25 PM) Percy left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).

(11:23:26 PM) LtKuari: :: relaxes from her salute and gets up to start walking with McKnight :: I would suppose my expertise would be unarmed combat, sir. And I have not taken the ordnance course yet.
(11:23:29 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Commander Harper, you're excused from this staff meeting and will retain the bridge. I'll brief you later.
(11:23:37 PM) CdrHarper: :: nods, relieved :: Aye sir.

(11:26:45 PM) LtSyvek: :: as the Colonel and Kuari leave :: Fascinating.

(11:27:12 PM) LtThors: :: After McKinght is out of area. To Syvek :: Wow. What exactly was that??
(11:27:17 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Unarmed, huh? We'll have to schedule a drill, so you can show me what you've got. I hope you won't take offense at what's frankly obvious, but it might take some creative thinking to fit you into the usual infantry formation.
(11:27:23 PM) CharitySuite: +Ryan+ Did it work?
(11:27:29 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: finds an interesting bio on a new crew member and scans it quickly, smiles widely and waits ::
(11:27:31 PM) RyanCarter: +Charity+ Yes.
(11:27:46 PM) CharitySuite: :;walking down the hall, ponytail bouncing::
(11:28:03 PM) LtKuari: :: nods :: None taken. I consider it somewhat of an adventure.
(11:28:15 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Tell ya what. Changed my mind. Why not come on up with me? You're gonna meet everyone at this meeting anyway sooner or later, and I seriously doubt we're about to hear anything classified.
(11:28:19 PM) LtSyvek: I am not sure.
(11:28:24 PM) LtKuari: :: walks alongside McKnight on all fours, keeping him even with her shoulder ::
(11:28:50 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Steps onto the lift as the door opens, and moves to the corner to make room for her.::

(11:30:31 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::To save time, the lift arrives on the bridge, and Doug crosses over to the conference room, new marine in tow.:: Sorry, sir. Pretty sure the first available lift came all the way from deuterium stporage.

(11:31:19 PM) LtThors: :: Shrugs shoulders and goes and gets cleaned up::
(11:31:26 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods :: Colonel, Lieutenant.
(11:31:33 PM) CdrTKirr: :: waiting at the door, eyes linger on the new marine and enters after them ::
(11:32:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Alright, that's everyone. Please be seated.
(11:32:27 PM) LtKuari: :: looks around at everyone, not sure whether to feel intimidated at all the rankage or to be friendly, and settles for smiling and finding a spot at the table ::
(11:32:53 PM) LtKuari: :: pulls out the chair, pushing it against the wall, and sits in the now unoccupied space on the floor, peering over the table at everyone ::
(11:32:55 PM) CharitySuite: ::walks into SickBay and checks the wall for the chart of new patients, sees it's clear:: Hmm.
(11:32:56 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Settles down in his usual chair.::
(11:33:16 PM) CdrTKirr: :: sits next to Blackthorne ::
(11:33:34 PM) RyanCarter: ::slogging through a jumble of code trying to pull it apart and make sense of it again:: I swear scientists shouldn't be allowed to write code.
(11:33:38 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Our mission is to hunt a killer.
(11:33:57 PM) CharitySuite: Guess Ah kin git ta workin' on th' pile o' medical journals Ah gots ta read up on.
(11:34:55 PM) ColDougMcKnight: I'm hoping that was more of a dramatic start than the extent of the information we've got to work with, sir.
(11:34:57 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: There have been attacks on scientific outposts that have pointed to a being known as the Rukagru, from the Delta Quadrant.
(11:35:25 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Lt. Kuari is here on special assignment to offer assistance, as her species is quite familiar with the Rukagru.
(11:36:14 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Lieutenant, welcome aboard. Tell us what you know.
(11:36:40 PM) LtKuari: :: nods to Blackthorne :: Yes, sir. :: looks around at everyone for a few moments ::
(11:36:59 PM) RyanCarter: CMeyers> ::returns to ryan, drops off another padd::
(11:37:36 PM) LtKuari: The Rukagru is actually... well, Rucaran, like me. Except he's not like us other than in appearance.
(11:38:15 PM) RyanCarter: CMeyers> ::reading the code on his screen:: What is that?
(11:38:39 PM) LtKuari: In our culture, he is the embodiment of all Rucara's evil. There is only one alive at any time, and... we all fear him.
(11:39:36 PM) LtKuari: I don't know if we'll be able to take him alive, but I would prefer so. If the Rukagru is to die, we believe our next born is to be cursed to become the Rukagru.
(11:39:50 PM) RyanCarter: Carter> A mess. I've got to refactor this guy's code cause it uses a bunch of open source, so it's bloated, and then for whatever reason his code is leaking memory and over-writing command sequences at, what I must guess, total random indexing... scientists aren't allowed to write code.
(11:40:12 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: That sounds like superstition.
(11:40:45 PM) LtKuari: :: looks briefly over to Blackthorne, not appearing surprised by his statement :: We usually don't know when he dies because it's his way to stay away from us. He has to be stopped one way or another, though. He's killed so many!
(11:40:49 PM) LtThors: :: After getting cleaned up joins Lt. Syvek to oversee the settling of new marines ::
(11:41:16 PM) LtSyvek: Thors, you handle the A-M, I'll take the N-Z.
(11:41:29 PM) JusstinCase: ... Wait ... he ... dies .... more than once?
(11:41:35 PM) RyanCarter: Carter> Look at this... this language is garbage collected and sequestered in a sandbox, how the fuck do you overwrite something in a command module not even related... ::shakes head:: I can't believe the kind of stuff we turn out as code. All our attempts to make things safe, and we're still just hacking things together.
(11:41:38 PM) LtSyvek: :: wonders how there are so many Z names ::
(11:41:48 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Looks up at Blackthorne...and there IS a bit of surprise in his case. Of course it's superstition. But you don't hear too many Academy trained sorts saying stuff like that out loud...not to the superstitious, anyway.::
(11:41:59 PM) LtKuari: No... it's a... title? State of being? That's passed on.
(11:42:25 PM) CharitySuite: (How does he kill so many of them if he doesn't come near them?)
(11:42:51 PM) RyanCarter: CMeyer> ::points:: That's how... ::laughs::
(11:43:08 PM) LtKuari: (( he's killed so many humanoids at an outpost, not Rucara ))
(11:43:11 PM) LtThors: Alright.
(11:43:29 PM) CdrHarper: :: takes a seat in the big chair, looking rather full of herself ::
(11:43:55 PM) ColDougMcKnight: As fascinating as this is, I'm a little more curious what he's even doing here. If he just wants to cause some trouble, enjoy some carnage, why Federation outposts?
(11:43:58 PM) RyanCarter: Carter> ::takes a closer look:: Is that a snippet of assembly written on one line... What. The...
(11:44:49 PM) ColDougMcKnight: I mean, he has to know Starfleet would respond to that, especially if he's this unconcerned with concealing his identity and involvement.
(11:45:11 PM) RyanCarter: Carter> Who wrote this! ::goes to find the revision history:: Ensign Fiasco! I'm going to stuff so many hello kitty dolls in his room.
(11:45:40 PM) CharitySuite: Fiasco>::huddled in a ball in his closet::
(11:46:21 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: It's a valid point.
(11:46:25 PM) LtKuari: :: nods :: I don't know. It's not like... what we know him to be. He usually keeps quiet, killing here and there, just enough to cause missing persons or unsolved murders. It's not like him to draw attention.
(11:46:26 PM) RyanCarter: Carter> In fact, ::stands up:: We're going to do that right now. ::sees that Percy is gone:: Come on, you wanted to learn how to hack a biometric scanner right?
(11:47:18 PM) RyanCarter: Carter> ::goes to one of the industrial replicators and gets the hello kitty replicator program, because there's an app for that and replicates a ginormous hello kitty:: Get the dolly.
(11:47:36 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Okay, fair enough. But tell me this.
(11:48:08 PM) RyanCarter: CMeyer> I...didn't think you were serious. ::gets the dolly::
(11:48:17 PM) RyanCarter: Carter> Have you ever known me not to be serious?

(11:49:02 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Do you fear him just because he's a psychopath, or does he have some physical or mental prowess above and beyond the rest of you? By way of a point to my question, could you help myself and a squad of marines get ready for him via tactical simulations?
(11:49:08 PM) RyanCarter: CMeyer> ::lifts the stuffed animal up and carries it to the dolly with Carter's help::
(11:49:30 PM) RyanCarter: Carter> ::pulls the cart with her as they head out of the cargo bay and down the hall and towards the crews quarters::

(11:50:13 PM) RyanCarter: Carter> I outrank you.
(11:50:22 PM) RyanCarter: CMeyer> I know what you did to Fiasco's room.

(11:51:25 PM) RyanCarter: Carter> ::marshals Catherine to Fisaco's quarters::
(11:51:41 PM) LtSyvek: Zzzifrix? Sergeant Zzzifrix?
(11:51:56 PM) LtKuari: :: ponders a moment :: We fear him because he's what we see to be evil incarnate. We fear him because he's willing to do things that we are not. In the instances where Rucara have gotten near him, they can feel his evil before even seeing him. :: twitches her ears and looks to McKnight :: I'll do what I can to help simulate what it would be to fight him.
(11:51:59 PM) RyanCarter: CMeyers> Gee, you don't think anyone saw a dinosaur sized Hello Kitty roll down the hallway did you?
(11:52:15 PM) LtKuari: I'll do whatever I can think of, or whatever you can think of, to help catch him safely.
(11:52:19 PM) RyanCarter: CMeyers> ::sees Carter tampering with the biometric scanner and scoots in close:: Show me.
(11:52:27 PM) RyanCarter: Carter> Done! ::the doors part::
(11:52:33 PM) RyanCarter: CMeyer> What! You didn't do anything!
(11:52:47 PM) CdrTKirr: How could he avoid capture while killing so many on an outpost? How would he not be located by internal sensors and immediately apprehended?
(11:53:00 PM) RyanCarter: Carter> ::pulls the hello kitty into Fisaco's room:: I hope he's not here. Help me put it on his bed.
(11:53:07 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Perhaps we could drug him?
(11:53:22 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Get to work immediately on such simulations. I want sensors ready to scan for this thing and weapon training to fight it.
(11:53:41 PM) RyanCarter: CMeyer> I can't believe I'm helping you do this.
(11:53:42 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Doctor, a way to incapacitate would be quite handy.
(11:53:46 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Any questions?
(11:54:05 PM) RyanCarter: Carter> I've been trying to sort out that jumble of code for days now... do you have any idea how many headaches that's caused me and the engineering staff. He deserves it.
(11:54:06 PM) LtSyvek: Zzzzifrixz> That's actually pronounced Zzzzifrixz, sir.
(11:54:19 PM) LtKuari: :: sighs :: I don't know that, either. He's... smart, I suppose. He steals for a living. I would think he's good at stealing, good at keeping hidden.
(11:54:49 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: We'll attempt to capture alive, but it's a secondary concern to stopping the killings.
(11:54:51 PM) LtKuari: But how he's avoiding sensors... it's a mystery to me.

(11:59:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I think Fiasco ought to lead the away team.
(11:59:53 PM) RyanCarter: he won't be sleeping in his quarters for a while
(12:00:02 AM) CdrTKirr: lol
(12:00:03 AM) LtThors: In hello kitty body armor?
(12:00:04 AM) CdrTKirr: See you
(12:00:11 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Night Rob!
(12:00:13 AM) CdrTKirr: I'm leaving for a road trip early so I gotta get to bed, too.
(12:00:15 AM) LtThors: Night.
(12:00:16 AM) RyanCarter: he could be Halo Kitty
(12:00:22 AM) JusstinCase: Ta ta!

(12:03:40 AM) LtThors: I'm out for tonight
(12:03:49 AM) CdrTKirr: Night!
(12:03:54 AM) LtThors: Night
(12:03:59 AM) LtThors left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).
(12:04:26 AM) CdrTKirr: Glenn, what kind of mods?
(12:04:40 AM) RyanCarter: hm? mods?
(12:04:51 AM) CdrTKirr: Engineering modifications.
(12:05:17 AM) RyanCarter: er?
(12:06:04 AM) RyanCarter: sorry brain getting slow
(12:06:44 AM) CdrTKirr: Nevermind it =P
(12:06:44 AM) DrRoxanneCarre left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).
(12:07:15 AM) RyanCarter: you mean the subplot I was doing in engineering?
(12:07:22 AM) CdrTKirr: No
(12:08:01 AM) CdrTKirr: Jason said you asked if there were any engineering mods to accomodate Kuari's size
(12:08:07 AM) RyanCarter: oh, I asked Jason in PM if Kauri needed any modifications to move around the ship
(12:08:29 AM) CdrTKirr: No, she can fit easily through corridors, even passing people
(12:08:44 AM) CdrTKirr: Have you looked over her bio by chance?
(12:08:59 AM) RyanCarter: no. -__-;
(12:09:04 AM) CharitySuite: The ship automatically expanded 30% to accommodate. :-)
(12:09:24 AM) CdrTKirr: Np, it has her size in there
(12:09:27 AM) RyanCarter: I'm pretty terrible about things like... reading. You can ask the people at work.
(12:09:42 AM) CdrTKirr: Don't worry about it. =P
(12:10:19 AM) CdrTKirr: She's 12 feet long
(12:10:26 AM) CdrTKirr: But that's head to tail
(12:10:59 AM) CdrTKirr: Pretty narrow... there's a pic in the files section of the google group
(12:11:03 AM) RyanCarter: yeah. I saw the drawing and she looked pretty big.
(12:11:28 AM) RyanCarter: so I was curious how she's going to move around the ship. I know that the turbolifts aren't that wide.
(12:12:19 AM) CdrTKirr: Yeah I shoulda put someone standing next to her for reference. In that position, her head would be chest level with your average sized man
(12:14:36 AM) RyanCarter: how wide is she when her wings are closed?
(12:14:47 AM) RyanCarter: you only give the wingspan
(12:15:09 AM) CdrTKirr: Dunno... guess you could kinda infer it...
(12:15:17 AM) CdrTKirr: She can fit through a doorway no problem.
(12:15:24 AM) RyanCarter: she's like human width then or a little over
(12:15:39 AM) CdrTKirr: Little wider than a man's shoulders if she pulls her wings up
(12:15:53 AM) CdrTKirr: Couldn't pass someone in a doorway
(12:16:24 AM) RyanCarter: ok
(12:17:23 AM) CdrTKirr: She's not in an environment designed for her, but she's been in Starfleet for four years and has adapted ways of getting around and staying out of the way.
(12:17:28 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Be hell to cut in front of in a line, that's for sure.
(12:18:10 AM) CdrTKirr: Would suck even standing in line heh
(12:18:43 AM) CdrTKirr: But yeah, sharp teeth at butt level =P
(12:19:05 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Keep a rolled up newspaper handy.
(12:19:11 AM) CdrTKirr: rofl
(12:19:15 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hey, she is housebroken, right? :V
(12:19:25 AM) RyanCarter: hahaha
(12:19:28 AM) CdrTKirr: I would certainly hope so
(12:19:33 AM) RyanCarter: engineering's not cleaning that up!
(12:19:39 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: I'd hate to have a litterbox for something that big
(12:20:01 AM) CdrTKirr: Damn humanoid lavatories
(12:20:08 AM) RyanCarter: what's she eat?
(12:20:31 AM) CdrTKirr: Omnivorous, but culturally herbivorous
(12:20:34 AM) RyanCarter: cold blooded, warm blooded?
(12:20:38 AM) CdrTKirr: Warm
(12:20:41 AM) RyanCarter: vegetarian
(12:20:50 AM) CdrTKirr: Right.
(12:21:05 AM) RyanCarter: why's she need retractable claws for if she's vegan? :)
(12:21:17 AM) CdrTKirr: As I said... culturally. =P
(12:22:02 AM) CdrTKirr: They can eat meat
(12:22:19 AM) CdrTKirr: A starving Rucara is dangerous o.0
(12:22:39 AM) RyanCarter: so Carter gets to haze her for having retractable claws but being vegan.
(12:22:41 AM) RyanCarter: :)
(12:23:10 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Purina RucaraChow, you can get it in grocery stores
(12:23:21 AM) CdrTKirr: Haze?
(12:23:36 AM) CharitySuite: Gotta be prepared for the rogue attacking ear of corn.
(12:23:54 AM) CdrTKirr: Oh hi Charity, didn't see you lurking in the corner
(12:24:09 AM) RyanCarter: you know poke fun, like when he threw Charity's shoes into the ocean at Lost Harbor. :)
(12:24:18 AM) RyanCarter: and then never bought Charity a new pair...
(12:24:19 AM) CdrTKirr: Haha, works for me
(12:25:59 AM) CdrTKirr: Any other questions? Otherwise I'm off to bed.
(12:28:56 AM) CharitySuite: Hmm. Okay, no more lurking.
(12:28:59 AM) CharitySuite: Night.
(12:29:03 AM) CdrTKirr: Night.
(12:29:11 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Night
(12:29:18 AM) CharitySuite left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).
(12:30:22 AM) RyanCarter: I'm off to eat
(12:30:25 AM) RyanCarter: goodnight!
(12:30:29 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Night!
