(10:08:34 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Are your older than Sesame Street?
(10:08:46 PM) Percy: Uh...maybe?
(10:08:53 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (that was my impression of Count Von Count BTW)
(10:08:54 PM) Percy: I will be 20, so...
(10:09:14 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: You're half its age, its 40.
(10:09:15 PM) ColDougMcKnight: I got her a present! But she totally doesn't know what it is.
(10:09:30 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Also, sure to the IM. Let me just sign on to AIM.
(10:09:41 PM) CdrTKirr: Cool ty
(10:10:07 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Happy birthday. :)
(10:10:19 PM) Percy: Yes, I do not know that he got me an awesome video game that I pointed at and told him to buy me :-P
(10:10:21 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I remember 20...mostly.
(10:10:37 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Oooh, Dragon Age?
(10:10:40 PM) Percy: Also, Sesame Street is much older than I thought. Huh.
(10:10:49 PM) Percy: Nah, Harvest Moon!
(10:10:50 PM) Percy: :-P
(10:10:55 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Score!
(10:11:03 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I asked for Dragon Age for my birthday!
(10:11:31 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Did your cat buy it for you?
(10:11:39 PM) Percy: Heh, our roommate is inevitably going to buy Dragon Age, so I can just wait.
(10:11:41 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Well he might have I don't know yet.
(10:11:49 PM) Percy: Kitty!
(10:11:52 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :3
(10:12:41 PM) Percy: Damnit, now Einstein is begging for pets.
(10:13:44 PM) Percy: Anyho, how are folks doing?
(10:14:26 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Alright, thanks.
(10:14:29 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Pretty good here, watching marrow extraction on CSI. >.>
(10:14:37 PM) Percy: Noice.
(10:14:43 PM) CdrTKirr: All right
(10:15:03 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I love how Tuesday evenings can be dead at work until oh, about 15 til 10.
(10:15:09 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Then bullshit starts happening.
(10:15:24 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Answer the door, open the phone!
(10:16:32 PM) Percy: Red wire! Green wire!
(10:16:43 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (Oh yay, the bad guy got hep c from cutting up the victim!)
(10:17:06 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I am so using that...
(10:17:08 PM) Percy: Hahahaha
(10:17:37 PM) Percy: I guess he should have used rubber gloves. Silly, silly murderer.
(10:17:53 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: He cut himself cutting her up...jerk.
(10:18:28 PM) Percy: EMO jerk.

(10:22:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne has changed the topic to: While hunting for the Rukagru aboard Outpost Daeva, our quarry has eluded us and managed to somehow get aboard Atlantis! What's more, the creature is able to cause feelings of agitation and fear, heightened in those with telepathic or empathic abilities.
(10:22:23 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Questions?
(10:23:29 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: In that case....

(10:23:35 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(10:24:28 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Computer, lock out command functions to my voice-print only, flag security protocol level three.
(10:24:30 PM) CdrTKirr: :: on the Bridge, on edge ::
(10:24:37 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Computer> Command functions locked.
(10:24:41 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: in Sickbay, juggling patients, surgical units and personnel ::
(10:24:59 PM) CdrHarper: Level ten forcefields in place around engineering, sickbay, and the bridge, Admiral.
(10:25:38 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: notes on her PADD that the crazy's went crazier and were sedated ::
(10:25:39 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: his eyes dart around, remembering the last intruders aboard this bridge, then after a pause :: ... Good.
(10:25:51 PM) Percy: :: Directs her engineers to arm themselves in the event that the Rukagru enters engineering, before having a team go about making certain that vents and openings are all sealed.::
(10:26:29 PM) LtSyvek: :: still on the bridge from having beamed directly here, standing by a TL door ::
(10:27:05 PM) LtKuari: :: still stands by CR, opposite Syvek ::
(10:27:15 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::McKnight observes Blackthorne cautiously:: Sir, I hope I'm not being too blunt, but how bad is this hitting you? Are you currently fit for duty?
(10:27:23 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: fills up a hypospray with some kick-butt sedative in case anyone else decides to join the crazy people ::
(10:27:56 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I'll confess, it's a strain, but I'll hold up.
(10:28:40 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: narrows his eyes, trying to strengthen his mental protection ::
(10:29:42 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Good. I know you'll tell me if that changes. Now then, Harper, the outpost. Let's get cracking on Lieutenant Syvek's plan, shall we?
(10:32:02 PM) CdrTKirr: :: nods to Blackthorne, as if her agreement will help strengthen both of them ::
(10:32:03 PM) CdrHarper: Yes, yes. :: looks at the Outpost's scans :: It looks like about seventy-five percent of the people aboard have arrived at the designated cargo bay.
(10:34:02 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: We're going to need our marines back once the Outpost is secure to hunt aboard Atlantis.
(10:34:04 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Sighs irritably:: Look, our sensors are working fine, right? Can we just lock onto the stragglers and beam them right there?
(10:34:50 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Yes, sir, but with your permission, I plan to err on the side or paranoia. We can spare three squads, just in case something else that should be impossible happens today.
(10:35:11 PM) CdrTKirr: DrNolan> :: hurriedly passes Carre :: Doctor Carre, Crewman Fenders (transporter chief) is in bad shape. I've stopped the bleeding, but he's lost a lot of blood, and some major arteries were severed.
(10:35:47 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Twenty four men to guard a shielded cargo bay?
(10:36:10 PM) CdrHarper: :: stares at the console :: I can do that.
(10:37:36 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I'll have some more syth-blood delivered for him, is he going to make it?
(10:37:47 PM) Percy: :: nervously fiddles with a tiny project while she awaits orders. She keeps a careful eye on the ship's systems, but the thought of having an evil murderous dragon thing on board was surprisingly not as cool as it seemed in the movies::
(10:37:48 PM) ColDougMcKnight: They're going to have to unseal that bay eventually, just to re-establish their life support and make repairs. Besides, I have an idea.
(10:38:31 PM) CdrHarper: :: starts tapping, then picks up speed :: Like shooting a dish in a barrel.
(10:38:40 PM) CdrTKirr: DrNolan> :: comes back the other way, carrying an auto-suture :: I think so. I've got two other men keeping him stable.
(10:38:58 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (OMG FISH...FISH in a barrel!)
(10:39:08 PM) CdrHarper: (you aren't on the bridge to correct me!)
(10:39:17 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: ( /cry)
(10:39:28 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Start beaming them to the bay. What's your idea, Colonel?.
(10:39:54 PM) CdrHarper: :: beam beam beam beam beam beam beam ::
(10:41:52 PM) Percy: (*glowstick*)
(10:42:29 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Hesitates a bit.:: Okay, once everyone's in that bay, and we get the confirmation it's sealed off, we're just going to vent the atmosphere, right? Then, they'll raise their shields and make sure they stay up before life support is re-established...which, by the way, is ONE thing I'd like to have a few marines over there for.
(10:42:44 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Then...we just leave.
(10:42:58 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Leave?
(10:44:10 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Leave. Mind you, we don't need to book it for the inter-galactic void, but definitely well out of range of anything the Rukagru could beam to. Suddenly, he'll be all but trapped on this ship, his options limited as he watches his time run out.
(10:44:29 PM) ColDougMcKnight: And I don't you, but I think it's this son of a bitch's turn to be the one who's rattled.
(10:44:39 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (*know about you)
(10:45:31 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods :: Yes... cut him off. I'll also want all shuttles, fighters, and bloody escape pods disabled as well.
(10:46:36 PM) Percy: :: As her eyes dart over the screens nervously, Percy notes something strange.:: Uh, that's weird. :: Making certain she's seeing right, she nods. While not something alarms would pick up on, it seemed at some power on Deck 15 near the lift was not reaching the entirety of the area it was supposed to.::
(10:46:41 PM) CdrTKirr: DrNolan> :: approaches Fenders, prodding one of the nurses aside and starts suturing some more :: Hold that wider. He'll bleed, but I've got to reach it and it soon won't matter.
(10:47:12 PM) Percy: +Bridge+ Uh, sir? I don't mean to alarm anyone, but there's something odd going on up on deck 15.
(10:48:31 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Percy+ Define "something odd."
(10:49:07 PM) CdrHarper: I've beamed all the Outpost staff to the cargo bay, Colonel.
(10:49:24 PM) CdrTKirr: ACTION> A loud pounding sounds from a ceiling panel in Engineering, and a frustrated roar can be heard, loudly at first, but then fades into a distant murmur.
(10:49:43 PM) Percy: Power's not reaching the area it's supposed to. It's subtle, but there seems to be some kind of interference going on near the lif- HOLY HELL.
(10:50:15 PM) Percy: :: In a somewhat panicked:: +Bridge+ I think I know where Mr. Big and Nasty is. Or at least was a second ago.
(10:50:17 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Percy+ Commander Busard?
(10:50:28 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: looks at McKnight ::
(10:50:35 PM) Percy: (*somewhat panicked voice)
(10:50:52 PM) LtKuari: :: draws her ears alternately back and up ::
(10:51:04 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: eyes the ongoing surgery that Nolan is doing, snags an orderly :: Make sure Dr. Nolan gets 3 more units of synthblood, NOW.
(10:51:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Percy+ Commander, what happened?
(10:51:15 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (BRB!)
(10:51:26 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Rachel has to step out for a second as well.)
(10:51:38 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks to Blackthorne ::
(10:53:26 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Bridge+Sickbay to Bridge. Are we expecting any more business in the near future?
(10:54:03 PM) CdrTKirr: DrNolan> :: flinches as blood almost hits his face :: Shit, the carotid's pumping! :: reaches for the more sensitive auto-suture :: Carefully, or we'll screw it up!
(10:54:20 PM) Percy: (Back)
(10:54:39 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Back as well.)
(10:54:47 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (WB)
(10:55:04 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Carre+ With the Rukagru aboard, yes.
(10:55:13 PM) Percy: +Bridge+ I think it just tried to beat it's way through the ceiling. Failed, but we just heard pounding movement above us.
(10:55:54 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Bridge+Crap...Carre out.
(10:56:01 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Furiously pounds his comm badge against his armor plated chest.:: +Security+ This is McKnight! Divert a team from the local deck patrol to main engineering! And hurry the hell up with the re-deployment. Force fields or no, I want a full squad in there, like it should have been by now!
(10:56:26 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: sonics herself and enters the surgical unit :: Need another pair of hands Nolan?
(10:56:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: his question answered :: +Percy+ We're getting marines to you, Commander.
(10:57:05 PM) CdrTKirr: :: quietly :: Sounds like it went for Engineering first. The seals must have worked. The question is, what did it plan to do, and where is it going now?
(10:57:54 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I don't bloody know.
(10:58:11 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: places her hand on the femoral pressure point to stop the spurting ::
(10:58:14 PM) ColDougMcKnight: I have no idea. That's why we need to cut down on the number of places it's worthwhile to reach. What about transporters? Can we still not detect it's signature?
(10:58:18 PM) Percy: :: sighs in relief, but can't shake off the worry just yet:: Thank you, sir.
(10:59:07 PM) CdrTKirr: DrNolan> :: spares a quick glance :: Oh, yes please. :: shoos the nurse opposite him :: Hard to see the edges with all the blood, but I'm trying damned hard not to seal the artery shut.
(10:59:32 PM) CdrHarper: :: shakes her head :: Nothing. But at least the Outpost staff has all been moved, voluntarily or not.
(11:00:06 PM) LtKuari: :: fidgets ::
(11:00:36 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Okay. Get me McGann on Mayflower, please. On a secure channel.
(11:00:47 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Suction please. :: suctions out the excess blood :: Let me know when you have it sealed Dr. then we'll test it. :: grins :: Nurse hang two more units of synth and run 'em wide open.
(11:01:03 PM) CdrHarper: :: opens a channel :: Commander Harper to SGT McGann.
(11:01:22 PM) CdrHarper: Got him, you're on, Colonel.
(11:01:36 PM) CdrTKirr: DrNolan> :: calms a bit at Carre's words and concentrates ::
(11:02:22 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Perhaps the battle bridge.
(11:02:36 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I don't know how much it knows about our ships, but it's a logical place to try to take over one from.
(11:03:05 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: looks at the other areas that have been repaired already :: Man this guy was shredded, poor thing.
(11:03:07 PM) CdrTKirr: :: frowns at him :: While the Bridge is active, locked to your authorization?
(11:03:16 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I'm not saying it would be successful.
(11:03:29 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: But it might try.
(11:04:10 PM) CdrTKirr: :: nods, ceding to the possibility ::
(11:04:34 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Sergeant McGann, listen carefully. I want you to pick a team for immediate beam in to the outpost's bridge. Once there, you will first raise the station's shields, then, after you've established an air-tight seal on the cargo bay, let me know. One of us will want to say a few words on station-wide.
(11:04:39 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: snags a retractor and uses it to clear the surgical field a bit more :: Almost got it...
(11:05:04 PM) CdrTKirr: DrNolan> :: nods shallowly as he works his fingers delicately :: Makes you think.
(11:06:13 PM) Percy: :: Examines the monitors again, looking now for the same kind of interference she spotted before::
(11:06:54 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: leans back in his chair, fighting to maintain concentration ::
(11:06:55 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: checks the stats :: His stats are leveling out now, looks like he'll make it.
(11:07:16 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> Oh, and well-armed marines totally swarm into engineering, eyes on the ceiling and doors.::
(11:08:06 PM) Percy: :: Is glad the marines did not get eaten.::
(11:08:34 PM) CdrTKirr: DrNolan> :: takes a peek himself and sighs in relief :: If HE can make it... :: surveys his injuries as a whole again ::
(11:08:41 PM) ColDougMcKnight: McGann> ::Complies with his orders efficiently, and within the next minute or so, deflector shields are erected around the outpost.:: +Bridge+ Okay. Shields up, bay is sealed. What next?
(11:08:43 PM) Percy: :: Also really wishes she had a suit of armor and a sword right now::
(11:09:24 PM) CdrTKirr: (( slay the dragon, +draconic sword! ))
(11:09:29 PM) CdrHarper: :: confirms that ::
(11:09:43 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (( dibs on the phat lewtz ))
(11:10:06 PM) Percy: (Only if I get all the XP)
(11:10:10 PM) Percy: (:-D)
(11:10:15 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Next, on the off chance it's even on the station, we give it ten minutes to surrender to your team, after which you will vent the station's atmosphere.
(11:10:52 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Would you like to deliver the terms, provided they work for you, sir?
(11:11:08 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I need a moment. T'Kirr you have the bridge.
(11:11:31 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: steps into the Flag Office ::
(11:11:44 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: puts her hands over several of the fixed areas :: You do nice work Nolan.
(11:12:32 PM) CdrTKirr: :: nods and watches Blackthorne's retreating form, then watches McKnight ::
(11:12:48 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Returns the look as he taps his comm badge once more:: +Percy+ You okay down there?
(11:13:26 PM) CdrTKirr: DrNolan> :: looks to Carre with a pause, as if changing tracks in his mind, then offers her a grateful and exhausted smile :: Hah, thank you, Dr. Carre.
(11:13:27 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sits down in his chair and turns to look out the window, trying to block out the Rukagru's influence ::
(11:16:07 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: employing a Betazoid technique to clear his mind of external influence ::
(11:16:38 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: has a look of intense concentration on her face :: It appears things are looking up, barring complications of course...I'll be right back. :: exits the surgical unit, snags a couple of 'sample suckers' on the way to her office ::
(11:16:51 PM) Percy: :: Is glad to hear his voice:: Peachy so far. I'm trying to see if the electrical interference correlates with the presence of the Rukagru, and if that's the case. :: She pauses:: Wouldn't mind a magic sword or something though.
(11:16:59 PM) Percy: Y'know, just in case.
(11:18:00 PM) CdrTKirr: DrNolan> :: blinks after her, then returns to cleaning Fenders up ::
(11:18:21 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: returns with full sample tubes, passing through the sonic cleaner :: Lets give this a try. :: puts a thin bead on all the reddened areas ::
(11:18:29 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: closes his eyes for several long minutes ::
(11:18:49 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Percy+ Well, phasers are pretty cool, I've heard. If you can spare either yourself or some of your people, I could use some help. See, we've got most of the major exits from the Jeffries tubes sealed off, but I KNOW there are some hatches in places we don't have field emitters on hand. Sooner or later, it's going to find one. It'd be ideal to have a
(11:18:53 PM) CdrTKirr: DrNolan> :: frowns :: What's that?
(11:19:02 PM) ColDougMcKnight: list of potential trouble spots on hand by then.
(11:19:30 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: shrugs :: A new type of anti-bacterial. It probably wont help much but it cant hurt.
(11:19:53 PM) CdrTKirr: :: listens to McKnight conversing, but finds herself closing her eyes discreetly, too ::
(11:21:16 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: opens his eyes, and it takes them a moment to refocus on the stars ::
(11:21:32 PM) Percy: I'll grab a few people and make my way up there immediately.
(11:21:52 PM) CdrTKirr: DrNolan> :: continues to frown curiously and nods along :: Great, you could write an editorial. :: presses against the side of Fenders' neck and flicks the auto-suture to a broader setting, running it slowly over the surgery area ::
(11:22:06 PM) CdrHarper: I could site to site them.
(11:22:11 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::At that, he grins a bit sadistically.:: Actually? Hold off on the you yourself part. I have a better idea.
(11:22:23 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: stands and walks back out onto the bridge :: Status.
(11:23:16 PM) Percy: ...Uh...'kay.
(11:23:26 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: If it works the way I think it will, I most likely will. You can have co-authorship for the trial cite. :: grins ::
(11:23:30 PM) Percy: :: Scratches her head::
(11:24:26 PM) CdrTKirr: :: turns to him :: We're awaiting the terms. Did you wish to give them?
(11:24:45 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Percy+ Remember that time a tank got blown up by robots swarm detonating?
(11:25:10 PM) Percy: :: Grins:: Why yes, I do!
(11:25:16 PM) CdrTKirr: DrNolan> :: grins, but doesn't look away from his work ::
(11:25:23 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: No. It's not on the station. Whatever SGT \McGann wishes to say will suffice.
(11:25:38 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Looks like you've got it under control now, just a bit of cleanup. Nurse, hang that last unit. I want his hemocrit checked an hour after that finishes. If its less than 73 hang another unit.
(11:26:30 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Percy+ How many of those suckers do you have, and how long would you need to re-arm them such that they could detonate with just stun grenade force?
(11:26:58 PM) CdrTKirr: :: nods and looks to McKnight, waiting for him to be ready to receive the decision. Quietly, to Blackthorne :: We're bringing engineers up here to help seal the Bridge more securely.
(11:27:07 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Keep checking every hour until he hits the mark.
(11:27:41 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods :: Good. I've had to abandon this bridge entirely too much lately. Not this time. :: sits down, a calm look on his face ::
(11:28:06 PM) CdrTKirr: Agreed. :: remains standing ::
(11:28:11 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: leaves the last bit of fluid in the sample tube :: Put this on those last spots you're cleaning up Nolan, we might as well cover them all.
(11:28:34 PM) CdrTKirr: DrNolan> :: pauses to take the tube :: You've got it. Thanks for the help.
(11:28:50 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: quietly to T'Kirr :: Are you alright?
(11:29:28 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks down to him and pauses before replying :: I am.
(11:29:31 PM) CdrHarper: :: overhears and feels somewhat reassured, but is still apprehensive, preferring to keep her new innards intact ::
(11:29:44 PM) Percy: +McKnight+ Right now? About....oh, thirty five that I could part with. And as for the other...well, I'd have to change the charge level prior to detonation. Should only take a couple minutes, provided that they're all responding to voice commands well.
(11:29:45 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Colonel McKnight.
(11:29:59 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Anytime! :: exits the surgical unit, passing through the sonic cleaner :: Orderly keep an eye out, I'm going in to check the crazies, I may need a hand. :: codes in the key for door ::
(11:30:17 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Percy+Great. Keep me informed.
(11:30:23 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Turns to Blackthorne:: Sir?
(11:30:45 PM) Percy: :: Grabs herself an escort, and heads to her quarters to recalibrate some adorable robots. Not Rubix or Cubit though!::
(11:30:58 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: When we leave, I want to narrow down the places that it can hide.
(11:30:59 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Orderly > :: nods and takes a position to cover Carre :: Yes, Dr.
(11:31:53 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: checks the condition of the patient, hypos in a bit more tranq to keep them out :: Alrighty, lets check the other one.
(11:31:55 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Evacuate as many non-essential decks as we can manage, given the size of the crew, and turn off life-support on those decks. Is this manageable?
(11:33:13 PM) CdrTKirr: (( Didn't you just freak out, leaving the sealed safety of Engineering, Percy? :: cues creepy music :: ))
(11:33:30 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: exits the room, relocks the door, unlocks the other door, enters and gets knocked into the wall by the disoriented crazy :: Damn!
(11:33:42 PM) Percy: (( Oh no! Wait.)
(11:34:15 PM) CdrTKirr: (( lol it's fine you made it of course =P ))
(11:34:16 PM) Percy: :: Replicates an awesome sword on the way. It's totally possible! ::
(11:34:19 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Orderly > :: takes down the patient and holds them immobile on the floor :: You okay Doc?
(11:34:59 PM) CdrTKirr: ACTION> An alarm goes off in Engineering. A power conduit feeding the reaction chamber goes offline, and backup systems kick in.
(11:35:21 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (BRB a sec)
(11:35:30 PM) ColDougMcKnight: We can physically do it, sir, but that's a long, drawn out undertaking under the best of circumstances, sir. And we'd have to drop a lot of the security fields we have in place to facilitate that sort of move. I'd prefer to try other methods before we go that route.
(11:35:32 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Yeah... :: shakes head to clear it, checks stats, hypos the patient to put them out again :: We need to keep these guys out of it.
(11:36:26 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (back)
(11:36:28 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: exits, waits for the orderly to exit, and relocks the door :: Thanks for the hand.
(11:36:46 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Very well. Progress, then, on the Outpost plan?
(11:36:56 PM) Percy: ::Looks at her PADD, which would inform her of things.:: Well crap in a goddamn hat. +Bridge+ We've got another problem. This thing just took out one of the reaction chamber power conduits. I'm doubletiming immediately!
(11:37:26 PM) Percy: :: Runs for the robots, and adjusts them immediately with a set of three voice commands::
(11:37:51 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Percy+ How many redundant conduits do we have?
(11:38:33 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +McGann+ Sergeant, never mind. The bastard's definitely still on our end. Hold tight.
(11:38:48 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: ( You're going to murder Cubit and Rubix's siblings? :( )
(11:39:16 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Okay, time to get out of here.
(11:39:20 PM) Percy: (They are unnamed and thus do not count. Besides, it's more honorable suicide than anything.)
(11:39:33 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Their sacrifice will never be forgotten!)
(11:39:57 PM) CdrTKirr: :: waits for the news alertly ::
(11:40:47 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Leans over Harper's chair:: I suggest now would be the time to get us out of here.
(11:41:25 PM) CdrHarper: :: blinks, then swears in Andorian ::
(11:41:59 PM) CdrTKirr: (( nice how the UT never attempts to translate her swearing ))
(11:42:07 PM) CdrHarper: :: sets a course for the middle of nowhere :: Ready.
(11:42:12 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Execute.
(11:42:25 PM) Percy: +Bridge+ Three, sir. And unless he's got a map, it's doubtful that Sir Breaksalot would be able to get to them.
(11:42:30 PM) CdrHarper: :: hits the warp engines ::
(11:42:45 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Percy+ Very well, repair that one as you can.
(11:43:11 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (It probably can't.)
(11:43:26 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: checks the PADD for new officer information ::
(11:43:46 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (two minute warning!)
(11:44:15 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: sighs :: Sickbay never finds out whats going on until bodies start piling up...
(11:45:10 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Fortunately, we DO have a map. I'll dispatch marines to the relays in question. Bipeds don't exactly do well in crawlspaces, but then they won't need to shoot half so straight either.
(11:45:53 PM) Percy: +McKnight+ The bots are set, by the by. Where do you want them?
(11:46:28 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Percy+ Start with the damaged relay, and have them separate to search in all directions.
(11:46:42 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(11:46:44 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(11:46:45 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(11:46:50 PM) CdrTKirr: :: pauses ::
(11:46:57 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: pauses ::
(11:47:08 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: pauses ::
(11:48:00 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Bots to the rescue! :D
(11:48:25 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Nice work tonight, folks. Lots of good ideas. Including the sacrifice of cute robots!
(11:48:31 PM) Rukagru: :: flees from bots ::
(11:48:34 PM) Rukagru left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).
(11:48:57 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Hehe... elephant/mouse thing goin on?
(11:49:05 PM) CdrTKirr: hah
(11:49:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Who would have known its weakness would be insanely cute tiny robots.
(11:49:29 PM) CdrHarper left the room.
(11:49:36 PM) CdrTKirr: By the way, do you guys like the pace we're going at? Would you rather it move faster, or slower?
(11:49:54 PM) CdrTKirr: Don't say slower.
(11:50:31 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Its mostly fine...those poor tranq'd sods in Sickbay are gonna have a huge hangover though. LOL
(11:51:08 PM) Percy: It's cool. We'll just tell them they had a REALLY bad case of PMS.
(11:51:11 PM) CdrTKirr: Speeding up medical isn't a problem =X
(11:51:19 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Nuuuuu!
(11:51:31 PM) ColDougMcKnight: I'd say a bit faster would probably be best...but that's fine, since everything seems set for the action to pick up next week anyway.
(11:51:32 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I needs time with spit and skin and hairs!
(11:51:56 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: There's something very wrong with you, Doc.
(11:52:00 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: LIES!
(11:52:29 PM) CdrTKirr: Well I don't wanna go faster than people can type =P It'll pick up though np
(11:52:54 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I'm going to figure out how to sythesize 5P1T.
(11:53:08 PM) CdrTKirr: rofl, I like it
(11:53:23 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: That is awesome
(11:53:58 PM) CdrTKirr: Anyway... gonna take off. RL and all. Until next time... dun dun DUUUN
(11:54:08 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Night TKirr
