(10:13:24 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Yaaarr!
(10:13:43 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Questions?
(10:13:58 PM) ColDougMcKnight: None from me.

(10:14:55 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: strides onto to bridge from the FO :: Red alert, all hands to battlestations!
(10:15:24 PM) CdrTKirr: :: on the Bridge, at the ready ::
(10:15:40 PM) CdrHarper: :: at helm :: ETA to coordinates five minutes, present speed.
(10:15:49 PM) Eraya_Gallagher: :: in her office, talking to one of the science officers::
(10:16:31 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: What's there on long-range?
(10:16:48 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: checking inventory, notes low supply of eye patches ::
(10:16:53 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Oh, one question actually. Are we at warp?)
(10:16:59 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Yep)
(10:17:38 PM) Eraya_Gallagher: :: Stands up as the red alert sounds::
(10:17:46 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Shields at full, weapons ready. Or at least, phasers are hot and good to go as soon as we exit warp.
(10:18:15 PM) CdrHarper: I'm not seeing much on sensors.
(10:18:23 PM) CdrHarper: Maybe one ship.
(10:19:26 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Our comm array is having better luck, sir. Picking up a distress call! Origin...3.5 light years out, heading 057, mark 292.
(10:19:36 PM) Eraya_Gallagher: :: finishes conversation with the science officer and makes way to the bridge::
(10:20:57 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Right where they said it would be.
(10:21:18 PM) Percy: (Sorry, I'm in an out 'cause I'm cooking.)
(10:22:51 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Getting transponder codes now. It's a freighter, Vostok Class. Identifies as the Bangalore, three weeks out of Bajor.
(10:23:25 PM) Percy: :: Percy has, after making certain that the daily diagnostic of the ship's systems has come out standard or better, headed down to the fighter bay. Pausing between minor repairs, she considers how one might be able to avoid situations like the one that happened most recently.::
(10:23:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Tactical data on the Bangalore, check against its filed flight plan.
(10:24:47 PM) Eraya_Gallagher: :: enters the bridge::
(10:26:29 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Calls up the specs:: Pretty standard setup for a delivery ship. Shields, 5 Class 9 phaser banks. That means it boasts more or less spherical weapons coverage, but that's about it. No way of knowing if any of that's operational right now, but I wouldn't bank on it.
(10:27:07 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: It's a bit far out for the Bajorans.
(10:27:40 PM) ColDougMcKnight: The call says they've been attacked by pirates, and their reactor has suffered damage. As for their location, it's half a light year off its charted course. Consistent with them trying to make a run for it before the bastards caught up with them.
(10:27:50 PM) Percy: (PIRATES!)
(10:28:04 PM) CdrHarper: Approaching the coordinates, Admiral.
(10:29:03 PM) ColDougMcKnight: It IS a long range freighter, sir. Its course checks out.
(10:29:16 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Take us out of warp.
(10:29:25 PM) Eraya_Gallagher: :: takes a seat::
(10:29:32 PM) CdrHarper: Slowing to impulse. :: hits the brakes ::
(10:29:57 PM) CdrHarper: :: puts the freighter on the viewscreen as they approach ::
(10:31:20 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Multiple hull breaches...well, you can see those. I AM detecting unstable readings from their reactor. And we're being hailed.
(10:31:38 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: checks the weekly health general report, adjusts Kuari's supplements and ups her available caloric intake, again ::
(10:31:40 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Put 'em on.
(10:32:53 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: stops ignoring the flashing light and starts monitoring the bridge viewscreen :: Hmm, looks like we'll be busy before too long.
(10:34:43 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: adjusts her own caloric intake down ( :( ) ::
(10:35:18 PM) Percy: (Toopid dieting)
(10:35:40 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (too many cakes/cookies)
(10:35:57 PM) CdrHarper: (Should have listened to the advice you gave me weeks ago!)
(10:36:03 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> The dirty, tired and plainly terrified face of a Coridian female fills the screen.
(10:36:37 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: This is Admiral Ian Blackthorne of the Atlantis, we're here to assist.
(10:37:42 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: reads the medical report on the new counselor and her family ::
(10:38:36 PM) CdrHarper: :: pulls the Atlantis alongside the beleaguered ship :
(10:38:43 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Sardan> Oh, thank the deity of your choice! This is Captain Sardan of the Bangalore. We've taken heavy damage, as you can see, most worrying of all to engineering! Our reactor casing has been damaged. We've managed to seal that section off. Hull breaches, too, so our atmo is stable. But we've got wounded. Plasma burns, radiation poisoning!
(10:39:16 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Stand by and we can transport you to our sickbay.
(10:40:12 PM) CdrHarper: Admiral... It must be their reactor. I can't get through that mess with the targeting sensors.
(10:40:33 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (BRB)
(10:42:24 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: sighs and heads out to sickbay general area :: Heads up, incoming! Prepare for radiation poisoning, plasma burns and lets remember to use isolation shields. Break out the dermal regenerators get your teams ready to go.
(10:43:25 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Meaning we can't beam over either.
(10:45:25 PM) CdrTKirr: We could use a runabout.
(10:45:45 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: It would be faster to get people to sickbay if we docked directly.
(10:46:17 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Stabilize their drift with a tractor and bring our starboard docking port in line.
(10:46:40 PM) CdrHarper: :: fires a pulse with the tractor beam and stops their ship ::
(10:47:54 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Gets on the comm to security:: Montrose, have a detail report to starboard docking port. And have our regular patrols on that deck standing by to render whatever assistance may be needed as well.
(10:47:58 PM) CdrHarper: :: eases the Atlantis up near what seems to be their docking port ::
(10:48:47 PM) CdrHarper: :: extends the docking port and lets it figure out the mating with the other one ::
(10:49:58 PM) CdrHarper: Hard dock, Admiral.
(10:50:13 PM) LtKuari [Mibbit@] entered the room.
(10:50:35 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Stand by on opening the door until teams are in place.
(10:51:34 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Captain Sardan, we'll have people to escort your injured to our sickbay, and then provide repair assistance.
(10:52:03 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Sardan> Thank you so much, Admiral! Bangalore out.
(10:53:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Let me know when your people are ready, Colonel.
(10:53:37 PM) Percy: :: Upon returning in engineering with some new ideas, makes certain to closely examine the state of the ship they're preparing to board.::
(10:54:05 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Nods:: Marines in place, sir. Still waiting on confirmation for medical.
(10:54:29 PM) LtKuari: :: waits in position outside starboard docking bay ::
(10:55:02 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods :: Go ahead open it up.
(10:55:12 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Just to let people know, I'll have to duck out in 15 minutes or so. I'm pretty under the weather, and I have work in the morning.)
(10:56:56 PM) CdrHarper: :: unlocks the door ::
(10:56:59 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Blackthorne+ Sickbay to Blackthorne.
(10:57:05 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> As the airlock opens, the first of the wounded are brought up on stretchers. The first of them sports nasty looking burns across his face and upper torso.::
(10:57:09 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Carre+ Go ahead, doctor.
(10:57:30 PM) ColDougMcKnight: "God, it hurts!"
(10:57:42 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Blackthorne+ Where are my patients? Are they beaming in or am I sending out to get them?
(10:58:18 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Carre+ Get a team to the starboard docking port for triage, they're being carried to sickbay.
(10:58:45 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Blackthorne+ Teams on their way, Carre out.
(11:00:03 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> Suddenly, two small black canisters drop down onto the deck from beneath the sheet covering the third patient in.
(11:00:20 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Take out on the starboard docking port. Lets get some gurneys down there and triage team set up for standard protocol, move people!
(11:00:39 PM) LtKuari: :: jumps to attention, noticing the canisters :: Take cover!
(11:01:28 PM) LtKuari: :: rushes to a wall panel, attempting to erect emergency shielding in time ::
(11:01:38 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> A brief, high pitched whine is heard as the grenades build a charge, then twin stun pulses erupt outward, washing over that section of the deck.
(11:02:07 PM) CdrHarper: Admiral, I have an energy discharge at the docking port.
(11:02:13 PM) Percy: :: Looking at the docking systems:: What the crap?
(11:02:24 PM) LtKuari: :: is stunned ::
(11:03:05 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (well thats not good!)
(11:03:30 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: spins :: What's happening down there.
(11:03:43 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Looks to his console in alarm.:: Those were stun grenades, I think. Starfleet issue! And...what the hell? Their reactor, sir! The radiation levels are dropping off.
(11:04:07 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Seal that deck!
(11:04:44 PM) Percy: Oh, you gotta be kidding.
(11:05:07 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Powering down turbolifts, sealing Jeffries tubes.
(11:05:18 PM) CdrTKirr: We should disengage from their ship.
(11:05:30 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Gets back on the comm:: Deck 9! (Or whatever deck is appropriate.) What the hell is going on down there?
(11:05:44 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Kate, seal the airlock.
(11:05:58 PM) CdrHarper: :: tries :: It's... jellied.
(11:06:10 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Jammed.
(11:06:18 PM) LtKuari: :: starts to come to on the floor, attempting to shake off the stun effect ::
(11:06:24 PM) CdrHarper: Yes, that.
(11:06:44 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> Suddenly, transporter signatures are detected. Dozens of them. And with a Viking-like war cry, heavily armed pirates swarm onto the ship, spreading out and gunning down everyone they can find still standing.
(11:07:11 PM) CdrHarper: Multiple transports!
(11:07:24 PM) Percy: Oh FUCK NO.
(11:08:06 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> And worse still, coming up behind the initial boarders, a more sedate group with an anti-grav cart, carrying a sizable bomb.
(11:08:11 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Bloody hell not this again!
(11:08:24 PM) CdrTKirr: Transport them back off!
(11:08:26 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (For what it's worth, unlike the last time this happened, these guys have and are so far using the stun setting.)
(11:08:27 PM) CdrHarper: So far confined to that deck. We still have shields up after all.
(11:08:29 PM) Percy: :: Dives for the weapons locker that she had added since the last invasion.::
(11:09:02 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: notes her people returning at a run, is informed of being blocked off from accessing the wounded :: Alrighty...I dont know whats going on but everyone resume your stations.
(11:09:09 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Radiation levels climbing again from the freighter!
(11:09:34 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Dammit, flood that deck with anesthezine gas.
(11:09:40 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: locks down Sickbay ::
(11:11:23 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Has marines scramble, taking up positions on adjacent decks, ready to attempt to retake that deck.::
(11:11:55 PM) CdrTKirr: ( weird, I didn't get Kuari's latest post )
(11:11:56 PM) Percy: :: grabs two phasers, passing one to the nearest engineer:: Computer! Seal off engineering!
(11:12:06 PM) LtKuari: :: blinks to alertness, hearing phaser fire, and manages to raise her rifle on a couple of intruders before she's stunned with a direct hit, drops to the floor again ::
(11:12:14 PM) CdrTKirr: ( Oh, there it is. )
(11:12:29 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Gas released...but I'm still detecting movement down there.
(11:12:39 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Blackthorne+ My people cant get to any wounded that are being brought on, feel free to beam anyone needing aid to sickbay. I put us in lockdown after that explosion, whatever it was. Carre out.
(11:13:04 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> And just then, the bridge receives a transmission...from the beseiged deck.
(11:13:04 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: They must have anticipated it. Transporters?
(11:14:04 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Pirate CAPTAIN!> Admiral Blackthorne, can you hear me up there?
(11:14:04 PM) Percy: :: Takes cover, phasers set to stun, and tries to gun down any pirates that might have transported in.::
(11:14:22 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Whoever you are, I want you off my ship immediately.
(11:14:50 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Not sure if engineering and the docking port are on the same level. If not, engineering should be in the clear. For the moment, at least.)
(11:15:07 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Nah the port's in the saucer)
(11:15:10 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: mutters about retirement :: Everyone relax and grab a drink, back to alert when the bodies start popping in. Oh and you'll all be staying here, we're in lockdown.
(11:15:12 PM) Percy: (Alright, wasn't sure, since the Action said "into the ship".)
(11:15:54 PM) CdrHarper: :: fiddles around with the transporters ::
(11:16:27 PM) Percy: (In that case) Are you fucking kidding me? :: After making sure that all the possible entrances are sealed off.:: God, invasions get old real quick. Aren't there, say, precautions we're supposed to take to PREVENT this shit? :: To no one in particular::
(11:16:46 PM) ColDougMcKnight: PC> Understandable. I too have every intention of leaving this ship...but I'm less hasty. See, I'm preparing for the long haul. The transport inhibitors being carried over as we speak, for instance.
(11:17:39 PM) ColDougMcKnight: PC> Of course, this could end a whole lot quicker, and more messy. If you don't mind, I suggest you do a quick radiological scan of this deck. It will indicate the presence of a medium yield nuclear device.
(11:18:26 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: looks to Harper, who nods back in confirmation ::
(11:18:31 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: What is it you want?
(11:20:12 PM) ColDougMcKnight: PC> What I want is to work out the same deal we made with Captain Anders of the USS Trafalgar, who was so nice as to furnish us these lovely non-lethal weapons, among other things. The surrender of your ship, in return for the safe release of your crew.
(11:20:43 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ( that a sufficiently dramatic note for me to leave off on? How you beat this jerk, I leave to you.)
(11:21:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I'll destroy the Atlantis before I hand her over to you. :: makes the slicing gesture and Harper cuts the comm ::
(11:22:33 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks to Blackthorne ::
(11:22:58 PM) ColDougMcKnight: PC> ::Scowls as he tries and fails to relate how the destruction of Starfleet's flagship in this area is a less than ideal, but also acceptable outcome.:: I'll bet he gets the last word in a lot.
(11:23:24 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Anyway, I do need to go. I'm cutting into the 8 hour window as we speak. So, have a good night, everyone.)
(11:23:29 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Night!)
(11:23:36 PM) Eraya_Gallagher: ( night! )
(11:23:37 PM) CdrTKirr: ( Night, Mike. =) )
(11:23:38 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Let's go ahead and...

(11:24:38 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: OMG how will we get out of it this time?!
(11:25:12 PM) Eraya_Gallagher: well, now knows why you can't keep a councelor
(11:25:36 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: They're pirates...we offer them shiny things!
(11:26:00 PM) CdrHarper: Keep away from my booty!
(11:26:25 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I need councelling...feel free to stop by Sickbay, we have tons needing councelling...really.
(11:26:34 PM) CdrHarper: Especially Roxy.
(11:26:44 PM) Eraya_Gallagher: lol
(11:26:48 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Total lies!
(11:27:12 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Besides, my seat conforms to my butt nicely thank you. :p
(11:27:16 PM) Eraya_Gallagher: I think Roxy needs lots of counceling
(11:27:35 PM) CdrHarper: It's not my seat that's the problem, it's the Admiral's!
(11:27:51 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Mmmm hmmm...
(11:28:10 PM) CdrHarper: Besides, you're the one who had to lower her caloric intake!
(11:28:32 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Yes but I'm an overachiever.
(11:28:35 PM) Percy: I say we shoot them all dead.
(11:28:47 PM) Percy: That's just mee.
(11:28:48 PM) Percy: *me.
(11:28:50 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: An excellent plan, with only two minor drawbacks.
(11:28:56 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: One, they have a nuke and hostages.
(11:28:59 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Two, they have a nuke and hostages.
(11:29:08 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Dont we have any of that mardi-gras bling left laying around?
(11:29:13 PM) Percy: Feh.
(11:29:32 PM) CdrTKirr: Don't think these are Ferengi pirates
(11:29:47 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Though there might be Ferengi among them.
(11:30:59 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Percy will come up with a way to beam that nuke off the ship and save us!
(11:31:02 PM) Percy: Fine fine. Create a diversion of some sort, THEN shoot them all dead. :-P
(11:31:17 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Right, right.
(11:31:36 PM) Percy: Well, I was actually thinking go-go-gadget robots or remote deactivation somehow.
(11:31:57 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Well, it'll be up to you and T'Kirr to do something about that nuke from afar.
(11:33:07 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Cant we get our people out and then blast the lock thingy and SUCK it out?
(11:33:21 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: You suck.
(11:33:27 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Yes, I use technical terms like "thingy" and "suck". :p
(11:33:37 PM) CdrTKirr: lol
(11:34:10 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: If it takes a few pirates too, well thems the breaks.
(11:34:36 PM) CdrTKirr: Seeing as the phaser arrays are on the saucer they couldn't target the port... maybe send the fighters out to shoot it? =P
(11:34:36 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Roll out the aft cannon, fire amid ships!
(11:35:29 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Emergency dock release?
(11:35:41 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: That could work
(11:35:44 PM) Percy: Well, theoretically it'd be possible to just point out that we're in a position to destroy their ship, leaving them the option of dying when they detonate the nuke, or NOT dying when they lay down arms.
(11:36:16 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Personally I'd like to see them all walk the plank. :D
(11:36:24 PM) Percy: OUT THE AIRLOCK
(11:36:31 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: GET OFF MY LAWN
(11:36:34 PM) Eraya_Gallagher: have a goodnight all
