(9:59:54 PM) CdrTKirr [Mibbit@] entered the room.
(10:00:01 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Evening.
(10:00:28 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya
(10:00:37 PM) CdrTKirr: Hiya. Just posted a pic on Group. =)
(10:02:06 PM) Percy [] entered the room.
(10:02:06 PM) JusstinCase [Mibbit@] entered the room.
(10:02:14 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya Rachel, Rob
(10:02:20 PM) Percy: Hi guys.
(10:02:20 PM) JusstinCase: They're everywhere!
(10:02:32 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Nice. Although I have to say...
(10:02:45 PM) CdrTKirr: Hey guys. I put a pic on Group if you're interested
(10:02:45 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Doug got his hand nosed by a NAKED dragon? Now I'm a little creeped out.
(10:03:08 PM) Percy: Wait, what?
(10:03:11 PM) CdrTKirr: Well... seeing as her uniform was pretty much shredded...
(10:03:20 PM) Percy: Goddamnit, am I going to have to kick a dragon's ass?
(10:03:25 PM) Percy: I don't wanna. I LIKE dragons.
(10:03:28 PM) CdrTKirr: It was already kicked. =/
(10:03:33 PM) Percy: But I WILL GODD-oh okay.
(10:03:39 PM) Percy: :-P
(10:03:51 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Sim hasn't even started and we're arleady talking about naked crewmembers.
(10:04:07 PM) LtKuari [Mibbit@] entered the room.
(10:04:24 PM) LtKuari: What about naked crewmembers? o.0
(10:04:47 PM) Percy: Get some bloody clothes on, ya ho!
(10:04:56 PM) Percy: (I kid! <3)
(10:04:57 PM) LtKuari: =(
(10:04:59 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Naked crewmembers who need to hear the talk about humans and their personal space.
(10:05:02 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Oh no she di'int
(10:06:20 PM) LtKuari: Oh hey... someone snapped a picture of me. Sick... why couldn't you take one of me well? =(
(10:06:48 PM) CdrTKirr: Well it wouldn't be quite as interesting with a blanket thrown over her, would it? =X
(10:07:01 PM) CdrTKirr: You would be thinking, hm.. I wonder what's under the blanket...
(10:07:25 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: It'd be like a giant hot dog.
(10:07:31 PM) LtKuari: *sigh* Humanoids and their attachment to clothing.
(10:07:34 PM) Percy: dog.
(10:08:22 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Clothing nothing. You're just lucky the Federation doesn't use money, or we'd totally be charging you for that fancy suit of armor plate you somehow lost on the way to sickbay.
(10:08:43 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Which is especially impressive, given you were beamed there.
(10:08:48 PM) LtKuari: Armor what?
(10:08:50 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I know a Ferengi or two that could put a price on it.
(10:08:56 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Hell, I think we may have to bill you anyway.
(10:09:05 PM) LtKuari: What was I wearing?
(10:09:09 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Armor. That stuff you had to be helped into in the locker room.
(10:09:12 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Twice.
(10:09:18 PM) LtKuari: Yeah. Over my uniform. I remember.
(10:09:37 PM) LtKuari: Well maybe it was uncomfortable while having my hide sewn up, okay? -_-
(10:09:47 PM) LtKuari: It's... um, on the floor. Somewhere.
(10:09:50 PM) Percy: Maybe she just wanted to be nekkid.
(10:09:56 PM) LtKuari: I did =X
(10:10:16 PM) Percy: She's an alien. We can't judge. Unless she MAKES A MOVE ON MAH MAN RARR :-P
(10:10:20 PM) LtKuari: Dr. Carre, where did you put my armor?
(10:10:41 PM) DrRoxanneCarre [] entered the room.
(10:11:03 PM) Percy: ...Although now I really want to be an alien so I have the excuse to run around nekkid. Is that bad?
(10:11:04 PM) LtKuari: There's my doctor =D Btw there's a pic of me on the Group!
(10:11:06 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: cough ::
(10:11:11 PM) Percy: Woo!
(10:11:18 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: OK now let's get started.
(10:11:20 PM) CdrTKirr: You are an alien. To me.
(10:11:27 PM) CdrTKirr: :: TWEEEEET :: Attention!
(10:11:30 PM) CdrHarper [CdrHarper@] entered the room.
(10:11:33 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Yeah, but that's just silly alien talk.
(10:11:37 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: aa ::
(10:11:38 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::AA::
(10:11:53 PM) Percy: (*runs around nekkid* Woo! You can't judge me! I'm an alien!*)
(10:11:58 PM) LtSyvek [Mibbit@] entered the room.
(10:12:00 PM) Percy: ::AA::
(10:12:12 PM) CdrTKirr: :: zaps Percy ::
(10:12:41 PM) Percy: Argh!
(10:13:00 PM) VAdmBlackthorne has changed the topic to: Tonight the Atlantis approaches Starbase Vinland. Before we arrive, there will be a ceremony in holodeck one, set on the Academy promenade grounds in San Francisco.
(10:13:01 PM) JusstinCase: ::AA::
(10:13:14 PM) Percy: (Also, that is an adorable picture. I want to pet Kuari more than I usually do.)
(10:13:38 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Senior officers and the marine detachment will be present at the ceremony.
(10:13:43 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Questions?
(10:13:43 PM) CdrTKirr: (Mission accomplished. =) )
(10:13:46 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Is this a dress uniform occasion, then?
(10:13:49 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Yes.
(10:13:54 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Class-As.
(10:14:09 PM) Percy: Maaan. But white stains so easily...
(10:14:11 PM) CdrTKirr: Kuari will be dressed. :: squints at Kuari ::
(10:14:13 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Blast. Thank God I went out of my way to establish the marine dress uniform does not look retarded last time this came up.
(10:14:22 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Unfortunately, the rest of you are screwed.
(10:14:29 PM) CdrTKirr: =(
(10:14:39 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: puts on her trashy underwear for the screwing ::
(10:14:57 PM) Percy: ...I would like to take this opportunity to state that of course engineers' dress uniforms are cargo shorts and polo shirts. Eh? Eh?
(10:15:00 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Better not tell Admiral Carre about that.)
(10:15:10 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Anyway.
(10:15:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(10:15:13 PM) CdrTKirr: Right. No questions, then.
(10:15:14 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(10:15:14 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (bah...)
(10:15:15 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(10:15:16 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Also, you realize I've been going with the size Zinthys gave me upon joining as far as the marine detachment?
(10:15:34 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (It's a holodeck, it somehow has unlimited size!)
(10:15:42 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Fair enough.)
(10:16:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: standing on the elevated stage as the crew assembles ::
(10:16:33 PM) Percy: :: Assembles::
(10:16:48 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: assembles ::
(10:17:13 PM) CdrTKirr: :: smooths down her dress uniform surreptitiously near the base of the stage ::
(10:17:58 PM) CdrTKirr: :: steps up and stands next to Blackthorne ::
(10:18:06 PM) CdrTKirr: :: gives him a once over ::
(10:18:23 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Walks into the holodeck, fiddling with the seldom worn necktie. Hand moving to the brim of his uniform hat to take it off, he reconsiders upon seeing that Blackthorne programmed the Presidio on a sunny day.::
(10:18:46 PM) LtSyvek: :: standing with the assembled Marines ::
(10:19:00 PM) CdrHarper: :: assembled ::
(10:19:14 PM) CdrHarper: :: quite literally assembled by Dr. Carre ::
(10:19:52 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::After removing a pair of sunglasses from the breast pocket of his Federation blue dress jacket and donning the shades, he nods briefly to Syvek and the rest of the 300 assembled marines before taking his appointed place.::
(10:20:08 PM) Percy: ("We ride.")
(10:20:09 PM) LtKuari: :: enters the holodeck and grins, recognizing the setting, and looks longingly up at the holographic sky before walking carefully in her one-of-a-kind- dress uniform to the assembled ::
(10:20:28 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: quietly, to T'Kirr, over the ever-present San Francisco breeze of cold death :: That looks like everyone, call them to.
(10:21:39 PM) CdrTKirr: :: has a distinct feeling she's done this more often than one would think and pulls out a special whistle and tweets ::
(10:22:14 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: EVERYTHING aa ::
(10:22:46 PM) LtSyvek: :: snaps smartly to attention ::
(10:22:48 PM) Percy: :: AA!::
(10:22:50 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (sorry...couldnt resist. >.> )
(10:23:06 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Shifts slightly so as to obey the instruction that whistle represents, and nods with satisfaction at the brief and quiet rustle he hears behind him.::
(10:23:11 PM) LtKuari: :: carefully moves to attention, minding her stiff muscles ::
(10:23:25 PM) CdrHarper: :: AA ::
(10:23:58 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: steps center stage and clasps his hands behind his back, surveying the assembled crew ::
(10:24:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: At ease!
(10:24:55 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I've assembled you here to ensure that certain contributions to the survival of this ship do not go unnoticed.
(10:25:56 PM) CdrTKirr: :: stands nearby, mimicking Blackthorne's stance ::
(10:26:00 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Though our past few missions have brought controversy, there can be no controversy surrounding the heroism and bravery of this crew in recent extreme situations.
(10:27:26 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Some of our recent actions have been heavily classified. Some have been scrutinized by investigatory committee. Only paperwork and beauracracy has stood in the way of getting you all the recognition you deserve, and today, that last barrier has fallen.
(10:27:53 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Dr. Roxanne Carre, step forward.
(10:28:06 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: steps forward ::
(10:28:22 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks to Carre ::
(10:28:41 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: walks up to Blackthorne and salutes ::
(10:30:05 PM) CharitySuite [Mibbit@] entered the room.
(10:30:27 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Hey, Charity!)
(10:30:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Doctor, for the extreme dedicated to the lives of the Atlantis crew your department has shown, I am pleased to present you and your staff with the Starfleet Surgeon's Decoration. Please accept this medal on behalf of your entire departement. (HI CHARITY!)
(10:30:36 PM) CdrTKirr: (Hey Charity =D)
(10:30:49 PM) JusstinCase: [Charity!]
(10:30:53 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (Hai Charity)
(10:30:55 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Watches curiously, wondering just what he meant by the final barrier, but somehow suspecting this isn't the time to ask.::
(10:31:06 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: gestures to T'Kirr to retrieve the medal case ::
(10:31:46 PM) Percy: (Gem!!)
(10:31:48 PM) CharitySuite: ::waves and slides in next to Jusstin, totally been there the whole time::
(10:31:56 PM) Percy: (*GLOMP*)
(10:32:03 PM) CdrTKirr: :: nods in acknowledgement and lifts it from a side table, then opens it towards Blackthorne and Carre ::
(10:32:28 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: takes the medal and pins it on Carre :: Congratulations - and thank you, Doctor, to you and your entire team.
(10:32:38 PM) CharitySuite: ( :: grins and hugs all around:: )
(10:33:14 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Thank you Sir! :: takes case, and salutes again ::
(10:33:50 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: smartly pivots and returns to her spot ::
(10:34:06 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Thank you to the entire medical staff for keeping us in one piece. You'll all be receiving your commendations shortly.
(10:34:22 PM) LtKuari: :: grins hugely towards Carre, all teeth ::
(10:34:42 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: winks at Kuari as she passes ::
(10:34:44 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Commanders Harper and Busard, come forward!
(10:34:58 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Is far less expressive with much of his face hidden or shadowed, but he totally manages a thumbs up when Blackthorne isn't looking.::
(10:35:45 PM) Percy: :: Steps forward with Harper, and salutes smartly.::
(10:35:55 PM) LtKuari: :: holds her tongue, thinking these humanoid ceremonies are way too quiet ::
(10:35:55 PM) CdrHarper: :: walks up next to Percy and salutes with her ::
(10:36:01 PM) Percy: (See, it's funny, 'cuz she's a nerd.)
(10:36:50 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Commanders, during recent actions, your heroism and devotion to your duties almost cost you your lives, but significantly contributed to our presence here today.
(10:38:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Lt. Commander Busard's tenacious defense of engineering against an intruder assault kept it from falling into enemy hands.
(10:38:58 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Commander Harper stayed at the helm during said intruder assault and kept the shields from failing by keeping our main deflector from becoming vulnerable.
(10:39:34 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: These actions almost took them from us, but we owe them both a debt of gratitude, and for that, I am pleased to award you both this decoration. :: gestures again to T'Kirr ::
(10:39:49 PM) CdrTKirr: :: displays the case ::
(10:40:42 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: takes the two medals :: For gallantry and valor above and beyond the call of duty, I hereby award you both the Starfleet Decoration of Gallantry. :: pins a medal on each of them :: Congratulations, Commanders.
(10:41:38 PM) Percy: Thank you, Sir. ::Silently low-fives Harper::
(10:42:09 PM) CdrHarper: :: smiles and _5's :: Thank you, Sir!
(10:43:01 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns back to the crowd :: Lastly, Colonel McKnight, please come forward.
(10:43:17 PM) Percy: :: Turns on her heel and returns to her standing spot, winking at McKnight as he approaches::
(10:43:39 PM) CdrHarper: :: walks back down, feeling shiny ::
(10:44:02 PM) LtKuari: :: stands up, looking over heads as McKnight is called ::
(10:44:19 PM) LtSyvek: :: lifts his head higher as the Colonel is called ::
(10:44:34 PM) Percy: (Sid> :: Platonic Buttpats of congratulations to Harper!::)
(10:44:36 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Manages a brief smile in passing as he closes the distance with Blackthorne, offering his own salute to complement the rest:: Sir.
(10:46:59 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: The Marine detachment aboard Atlantis has always stood for excellence, but the last few missions have been especially taxing. During the mutiny and events leading up to it, the classified operation, and the assault on the Rukagru, we have been able to count on our Marines to protect us and do the work that must be done.
(10:47:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Tales of countless acts of selflessness and valor have crossed my desk, and for that, I am pleased to present this award.
(10:47:37 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods to T'Kirr ::
(10:48:24 PM) CdrTKirr: :: offers McKnight, although subtle, a pleased expression and displays the case ::
(10:48:33 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Lt. Colonel McKnight, on behalf of your entire detachment, please accept this award. I am proud to decorate the entire Atlantis Marine Detachment with the Presidental Unit Citation for Valor, authorized by the President of the Federation himself.
(10:48:52 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: hands him the case ::
(10:49:38 PM) LtKuari: :: starts bouncing a little, despite her stiffness ::
(10:49:38 PM) LtSyvek: :: swells with what might be mistaken as pride, were he not Vulcan ::
(10:50:16 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Grins back silently, having served aboard this ship for enough years now to recognize Vulcan subtlety for what it is. When the award is presented, however, an expression of genuine surprise crosses his face. It's not every day a Star Fleet officer's name is even known to the President.::
(10:50:35 PM) Percy: (So instead he swells with logic?)
(10:50:55 PM) LtSyvek: (Quite.)
(10:50:56 PM) CdrTKirr: (Hopefully)
(10:51:12 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Gladly accepts the case:: Well, hot damn. You let the President know he hasn't seen our best work yet, sir!
(10:51:19 PM) CharitySuite: (So, if Vulcan's don't swell, where do little Vulcans come from?)
(10:51:21 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I'll do that, Colonel. Congratulations!
(10:51:48 PM) LtSyvek: (Well, you see, when one Vulcan loves another very much,... a pointy-eared stork comes and gives them a little Vulcan!)
(10:52:25 PM) LtKuari: :: bounces, biting her tongue ::
(10:52:38 PM) CharitySuite: (:: smacks the apostrophe into a proper contraction::)
(10:52:47 PM) CdrTKirr: (Does that ever happen, though?)
(10:53:21 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Grinning widely now, he takes the case in one hand, lifts it high, and turns to the assembled 300:: Ladies and gentlemen, I expect I'll be pushing you even harder after this, but for now, damn fine work, people!
(10:53:44 PM) LtSyvek: :: almost smiles, but instead barks out:: Hoo-ah!
(10:54:04 PM) LtKuari: :: barks loudly in excitement ::
(10:55:00 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Turns back to Blackthorne, hugging the case to his breast proudly as he turns to Blackthorne and T'Kirr one last time before returning to his spot:: Sirs.
(10:55:16 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns back to the crowd as the Marines settle down from their Hoo-ah-ing ::
(10:55:20 PM) CdrTKirr: :: nods with a perked eyebrow ::
(10:55:55 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: That concludes this ceremony. I'm proud of all of you and I know that the Atlantis tradition of excellence is in no danger of faltering under your care.
(10:56:04 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: We'll be arriving at Vinland shortly. Dismissed!
(10:56:16 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: cheers loudly ::
(10:56:28 PM) CdrHarper: :: also cheers ::
(10:56:44 PM) LtSyvek: :: has cheered as much as he will in the next year in one day ::
(10:57:09 PM) Percy: Woo!
(10:57:23 PM) CdrHarper: :: grinning from ear to ear ::
(10:57:37 PM) CdrTKirr: :: turns to Blackthorne as the crowd begins to grow in volume and disorder, looking pleased ::
(10:59:09 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: also looking pleased :: Glad to finally get to give those out.
(10:59:36 PM) CdrTKirr: Indeed. What are your plans for when we reach Starbase Vinland?
(11:00:26 PM) CdrHarper: :: makes her way through the crowd to the door, wondering if Ens. Pilot has screwed up the helm yet ::
(11:00:42 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: None yet, aside from shipping a Rukagru back to Earth.
(11:00:47 PM) Percy: ("Well, it IS Wednesday, and I AM in my business socks...")
(11:00:56 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Their Ambassador even sent a FedEx label.
(11:01:22 PM) CdrTKirr: :: perks eyebrow ::
(11:01:46 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: head off to change, and appropriate a few more samples from the Rukagru before it gets shipped off to wherever ::
(11:03:03 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Finds Syvek among the crowd as they make their way toward the exit:: Lieutenant. I have a mission for you.
(11:03:14 PM) LtSyvek: Sir.
(11:03:28 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Did you have something in mind?
(11:04:18 PM) CdrTKirr: No, I was merely curious.
(11:04:38 PM) LtKuari: :: bustles about with the crowd of marines ::
(11:05:04 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Hands him the case.:: You are to take this package down to the security office and find it a sensible and eye catching place of honor on the wall. I need to contact Commander Bleys and let him know he'll need to watch a corpse for a few hours. I expect he'll be pleased to know WHY this time.
(11:05:17 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: There's a nearby colony with a housing project being built that I plan on donating some time to, and it looks like we'll have a little time in port.
(11:05:19 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: makes a note to restock her chocolate supply and buy a sampler box for Kuari's 'education' ::
(11:05:48 PM) LtSyvek: :: takes the case :: I am honored, Colonel.
(11:06:08 PM) CdrHarper: :: makes her way back to her quarters and changes out of the dress uniform into a normal one ::
(11:06:20 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Would you care to join me?
(11:07:10 PM) Percy: :: Looks around as she is exiting the holodeck, and after noting that McKnight is busy, decides to stand outside until he is done.::
(11:07:16 PM) ColDougMcKnight: As are we all. And once that's done, you will join the rest of us for a celebratory drink on the station. Synthale if you must, but a drink all the same. The sooner we do that, I've been meaning to sleep in and start on a new book for some time now. I'd like to get started soon.
(11:07:39 PM) LtSyvek: :: raises an eyebrow :: I.. am sure I can find something, sir.
(11:08:12 PM) CdrTKirr: :: nods her agreement :: Of course. What sort of housing project?
(11:08:18 PM) CdrHarper: :: makes her way to the bridge, relieves Otto at the helm, and gets all the status reports ready that she's sure the CO and XO will want ::
(11:08:36 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Houses for new colonists, that sort of thing. Any good with a hammer? :: grins ::
(11:09:11 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: wonders if anyone would notice if the brain went missing ::
(11:10:03 PM) CdrTKirr: :: takes the question as rhetorical and begins thinking through the possible scenario that lies ahead as they walk out of the holodeck ::
(11:10:13 PM) LtSyvek: If that is all, sir?
(11:11:07 PM) LtKuari: :: tries to make her way towards McKnight, but she tends to need more room to squeeze through people than the average queue-cutter and fails ::
(11:11:16 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Waves his hand, appropriately enough, dismissively.:: Of course. On your way, all of you. And well done, once more.
(11:11:28 PM) LtSyvek: :: heads off to the SecOffice ::
(11:11:44 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: enters the TL :: Deck eight.
(11:13:17 PM) CdrTKirr: Recognition from the President of the Federation. Quite the honor.
(11:13:34 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: They deserved it, even if everything had to stay classified.
(11:13:51 PM) CdrTKirr: Of that I have no doubt.
(11:13:57 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: exits the TL on the deck with their quarters :: Let's get changed and back to the bridge.
(11:14:31 PM) CdrTKirr: I'll be up shortly. :: reaches her quarters and enters, changing ::
(11:14:43 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: heads to his door and enters ::
(11:15:01 PM) LtSyvek: :: arrives in the security office and eyes the wall ::
(11:15:54 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Oblivious of further needs for his attention due to the crowd, he exits when he spots a good opening, not hard given the tendency of his marines to make way, taking a moment to marvel that the place can somehow accomodate that many people in the first place.::
(11:16:39 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: emerges several minutes later in normal uniform ::
(11:17:47 PM) LtKuari: :: finally breaks off from the crowd and enters her quarters, finding the sudden quiet as a reminder of her condition and how recent excitement has sapped her strength ::
(11:18:02 PM) Percy: Psst.
(11:18:06 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: enters the TL :: Bridge.
(11:18:10 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (AFK door )
(11:19:59 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: does a 3D head scan along with a full body scan, snags hair, scale, blood, brain and bone samples :: Well, that should give me something to work with.
(11:20:29 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Glances off to the side with a smile:: Commander! Congratulations. You and that wrench of yours are getting noticed.
(11:20:58 PM) CdrTKirr: (The legendary bane of Rucara, reduced to a post-mordem =P )
(11:21:39 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (back)

(11:22:06 PM) CdrHarper: :: before he finishes :: ETA to Vinland is 10 minutes, all systems nominal.
(11:22:29 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Thank you, Commander.
(11:22:36 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sits down ::
(11:24:15 PM) CharitySuite: (Nominal? That's a good thing?)
(11:24:35 PM) JusstinCase: [It doesn't happen often. :-D]
(11:25:08 PM) LtKuari: :: sits heavily in front of her screen :: Computer, contact Earth, San Fransisco Medical, Dr. Ruari.
(11:26:01 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (For once we're not coming in all beaten up!_
(11:26:24 PM) CharitySuite: (Huzzah)
(11:26:31 PM) LtKuari: Ruari> :: pops up on the screen, looking to have been interrupted but suddenly very happy :: Kuari! Oh, where have you been? We've been so worried!
(11:27:11 PM) LtKuari: :: grins :: I'm okay. You've heard? We completed our mission.
(11:27:13 PM) LtSyvek: :: picks a prominent place on the wall and hangs the unit citation ::
(11:27:16 PM) Percy: (Sorry, was AFK)
(11:27:27 PM) CdrTKirr: :: arrives on the Bridge, looking normal ::
(11:28:11 PM) LtKuari: Ruari> :: nods, suddenly solemn :: Of course. We were told you were injured, but that you are recovering fully?
(11:28:17 PM) Percy: Well, that at least now justifies my future plans for the wrench. I'm plate. Too much?
(11:28:46 PM) LtSyvek: :: ensures that it hangs perfectly level, of course ::
(11:28:58 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods to T'Kirr as she enters ::
(11:29:18 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Takes up an easy stride in the direction of his quarters:: I suppose that would depend on whether you'd like it to continue being useful as a wrench.
(11:29:29 PM) LtKuari: :: nods back, in Rucara fashion :: Yeah. I'll be all right. :: pauses, sounding hurt :: We had to kill him.
(11:29:57 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Apparently, gold is kind of a soft metal. Be a shame to scuff it on a loose bolt.
(11:30:05 PM) CdrTKirr: :: takes her seat, looking to see if any reports have come in while she was away ::
(11:30:16 PM) Percy: :: Follows him. Mwahaha:: ...Fine, gold tinted titanium.
(11:30:34 PM) LtKuari: Ruari> :: ears wilt :: I know, Kuari. I'm sure it had to be done. At least you're all right.
(11:30:44 PM) CdrHarper: :: drops Atlantis out of warp on their approach vector to the Starbase :: We've arrived, Admiral.
(11:31:46 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Acquire clearance and take us in nice and easy.
(11:31:50 PM) LtKuari: :: knits her brow, frustrated :: It's not right, though! My life, in exchange for the next born? Ruka doesn't even know he's dead! We can't even tell them!
(11:32:29 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks up at the Starbase on the viewscreen, the sight starting to become familiar ::
(11:33:12 PM) LtKuari: Ruari> Be calm, Kuari. There's nothing we can do. You did what you had to. The Rukagru had gotten out of control. You completed your mission. People are safe, for now.
(11:33:18 PM) CdrHarper: :: gets docking clearance and eases Atlantis through the spacedoors and into her berth ::
(11:33:39 PM) LtKuari: :: is silent for a few moments :: I'm staying on Atlantis.
(11:33:53 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: locks all her new samples in her lab space, sends off notes to central medical about tool recalibration, not wanting anyone to have the same problems she had with Lt. Kuari ::
(11:34:09 PM) CdrHarper: Umbilicals attached, transfer to internal power complete. We're docked. Snug as a drug in a bug.
(11:34:19 PM) LtKuari: Ruari> :: pulls her ears up, surprised :: You are? Does Karwayin know?
(11:34:27 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: A what in a what?
(11:34:36 PM) CdrTKirr: :: frowns at the statement ::
(11:34:44 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Considers a moment:: Sweet. Seriously though, congratulations. I may not have been there, but I've heard it told not by more than enough people to know it's well-deserved.
(11:34:50 PM) CdrHarper: Never mind, I probably messed that up anyway.
(11:35:04 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Oh, since we've arrived already, is ACTUALLY heading for sickbay.::
(11:35:07 PM) LtKuari: If not, he will soon. I love you. I'll talk soon, okay?
(11:35:35 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns to T'Kirr :: Grant shoreleave to all crew.
(11:36:45 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: sends a detailed personal note to Mr. Carre about the ceremonies earlier :: That ought to get his attention. :: laughs ::
(11:37:24 PM) CdrTKirr: :: nods :: +Shipwide+ Attention, all hands. We've arrived at Starbase Vinland. Shoreleave is available for all crew members. You will be updated on a return time. A task well done. We deserve a rest. Commander T'Kirr out.
(11:37:48 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks to Blackthorne ::
(11:37:52 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: stands and sees lingering bridge crew :: Secure your stations! Go, have fun!
(11:38:10 PM) Percy: Hey, I just saw a technical problem with how those Klingon's heads were constructed, and felt the urge to correct.
(11:38:37 PM) CdrHarper: :: quickly secures HOps and leaves :: +Carre+ Harper to Carre.
(11:38:45 PM) LtKuari: Ruari> I love you, too. Rest well, Kuari, and call me soon!
(11:38:45 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: sends a note to Harper :: "My suite in 2 hours for some action!"
(11:38:49 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (We'll pause at 15 til, FYI)
(11:39:05 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Harper+Carre here.
(11:39:27 PM) CdrHarper: +Carre+ Got any plans for leave?
(11:39:40 PM) Percy: ...Alternatively, my phaser got kicked out of my hand. One of the two. By the by? I've got some great ideas for improving Security in Engineering...and other parts of the ship.
(11:40:09 PM) Percy: How do you feel about wall-mounted phaser canons?
(11:40:11 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Harper+ I just sent you a note with details! Was going to see if they had any new releases before you showed up.
(11:40:18 PM) Percy: (*cannons?)
(11:40:21 PM) CdrTKirr: :: stands ::
(11:41:01 PM) CharitySuite: (Pachelbel's Phaser Canon in D )
(11:41:18 PM) CdrHarper: +Carre+ Oh, great! I'll be there with shells on.
(11:41:19 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Cannons? Like...pointed at the inside of the ship?
(11:41:29 PM) Percy: (It would be the most badass piece of music since V for Vendetta's 1812 Overature.)
(11:41:39 PM) CharitySuite: (No kidding!!)
(11:41:41 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (I'm trying to imagine that)
(11:41:52 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Harper+ If you like but most people come with BELLS on. Carre out.
(11:42:00 PM) Percy: :: She smirks:: Kidding, I swear. any plans for shore leave?
(11:42:02 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (It'd have to sound something like the BSG music. :)
(11:42:06 PM) LtKuari: :: heard the call for shore leave, but decides to slump into her pillow of a bed and pass out ::
(11:42:28 PM) CdrHarper: :: shakes her head in annoyance at this damn language :: Ferengi makes more sense. ::heads for her quarters ::
(11:43:43 PM) Percy: (Or like explosions which happen to be in the correct key tones as the notes of Canon in D)
(11:43:51 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Shakes his head in contentment.:: Nope.
(11:44:07 PM) Percy: ...Wanna have some?
(11:45:04 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sees all stations secured :: Looks like we're closed.
(11:45:50 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: hopes someone claims the dead Rukagru soon, so she can head to shore ::
(11:45:53 PM) CdrTKirr: :: checks station feeds before locking her own out :: Shore leave.
(11:46:02 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(11:46:04 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE SIM

(11:47:21 PM) JusstinCase: :: pauses ::
(11:47:31 PM) Percy: Woo!
(11:48:36 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I'll have to wake Jack up.
(11:48:53 PM) CdrTKirr: Yay
(11:49:05 PM) Percy: Man, is THAT what he does between shoreleaves?
(11:49:11 PM) Percy: Lazy!
(11:49:18 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: He's the ship's counselor, he's quite busy.
(11:49:30 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Pouring drinks, listening to troubles, dispensing sage advice.
(11:49:53 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: "I cant fix you, here drink this, you'll feel better." Works for me.
(11:50:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Well, by sage advice, that's what I meant.
(11:51:15 PM) Percy: Anyway, I'm off for the night. Later all!
(11:51:24 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Night Rachel!
