(10:05:35 PM) Percy [] entered the room.
(10:06:04 PM) Percy: *sigh* Yes I am aware the Sim starts at ten. My computer was being retarded.
(10:06:09 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Hey hey.
(10:06:11 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya
(10:06:26 PM) Percy: Hey guys.
(10:06:56 PM) CdrTKirr: Hey. =)
(10:09:53 PM) Eraya_Gallagher [] entered the room.
(10:10:15 PM) CdrTKirr: Hey Kiley
(10:10:36 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya
(10:10:42 PM) Eraya_Gallagher: hiya
(10:11:06 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Texted Carre
(10:11:26 PM) CdrTKirr: Ah cool.
(10:11:40 PM) CdrTKirr: I really should probably stop calling you Kiley huh? -_-
(10:11:46 PM) Eraya_Gallagher: LOL
(10:13:03 PM) DrRoxanneCarre [] entered the room.
(10:13:37 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya Doc
(10:13:53 PM) CdrTKirr: Hi Carre
(10:14:05 PM) CdrHarper [] entered the room.
(10:14:20 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Hi guys
(10:14:48 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: OK, let's get going!
(10:15:35 PM) CdrTKirr: :: TWEEET :: Attention!
(10:15:40 PM) Eraya_Gallagher: ::AA::

(10:16:04 PM) Percy: ::AA::
(10:16:10 PM) VAdmBlackthorne has changed the topic to: Atlantis has fallen into a trap while attempting to rescue a cargo ship from pirate attack. We are joined with the freighter by a hard dock, and pirates have brought a nuclear weapon on board, threatening detonation if we don't had over the ship!
(10:16:18 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Questions?
(10:17:10 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Yaarrrgh?
(10:17:14 PM) LtSyvek [] entered the room.
(10:17:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I take that as a no. :)
(10:17:52 PM) Percy: Arr.
(10:17:55 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Alright, here we go.

(10:19:23 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Continues unhappily monitoring the...monitors, surveying the situation on the trouble deck.:: Lovely. Now they're bolting down some sort of crew served disrputor cannon.
(10:19:29 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Computer> Auto destruct initialized. Awaiting Executive Officer's authorization.
(10:19:31 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Where are they getting all this crap?
(10:19:56 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: looks to T'Kirr ::
(10:20:23 PM) CdrHarper: :: looks back at the Admiral ::
(10:21:27 PM) Percy: :: Percy works feverishly on ideas about how to fix this mess in a technical way. After a few minutes, she gets an idea, and writes out a message to send to T'Kirr's PADD::
(10:21:56 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks to Blackthorne :: Confirm auto-destruct sequence, authorization T'Kirr seven seven theta alpha.
(10:22:25 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Computer> Authoriation received. Awaiting Second Officer's authorization.
(10:22:46 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns to McKnight ::
(10:22:49 PM) Percy: +T'Kirr via PADD+ Remote detonators operate on specific frequencies. Find it and we can shut it off. Might be enough time for dashing rescue?
(10:23:33 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Frowns even more deeply.:: I guess that's me. I assume we're going to work on a plan beyond "Kill ourselves to spite these assholes."?
(10:23:37 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Naturally.
(10:24:18 PM) Eraya_Gallagher: I hope so
(10:24:23 PM) CdrTKirr: :: consults her PADD and moves to Science, inputting a few commands ::
(10:24:48 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Sighs:: Alright. Computer, Lieutenant Colonel McKnight. Confirm auto-destruct sequence, authorization 7-5 Quebec Papa Zulu.
(10:25:02 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Sorry, scratch that.)
(10:25:14 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Authorization McKnight 7-5 Quebec Papa Zulu.
(10:25:28 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Computer> Auto-destruct sequence authorized and ready. Awaiting final confirmation code.
(10:26:09 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: This is Vice Admiral Ian Blackthorne. Destruct Sequence Alpha-Zero. Thirty minutes, audible warnings.
(10:26:12 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: pauses:: Enable.
(10:26:25 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Computer> Warning! This ship will auto-destruct in thirty minutes!
(10:26:38 PM) CdrTKirr: ( Dun dun DUN... )
(10:26:50 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Pirate> Oh shit.
(10:27:29 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns to McKnight :: Now, about that plan beyond killing ourselves.
(10:27:47 PM) CdrHarper: :: watches the countdown on the helm console with some worry ::
(10:27:51 PM) CdrTKirr: :: works at the console :: Commander Busard and I may be able to isolate the detonator's frequency and disable it. It may only be a temporary solution, however.
(10:28:12 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Pirate CAPTAIN!> Shut the fuck up! Admiral Blackthorne wants to intimidate us with the size of his space balls, then we make him pay for it. Set the timer for 20! And let's work on an exit strategy.
(10:28:13 PM) CdrTKirr: ( Damn you, Kuari... looooad )
(10:28:20 PM) ColDougMcKnight: PC> Okay, 25. 25 is good.
(10:28:25 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Alright, if we arent dead in a few minutes, we'll most likely be having incoming. Prepare up your triage groups and your med groups. Ditch those gurneys in the padded rooms, we'll use that as a secondary work area.
(10:28:31 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Make it happen. It will be handy for them to not be able to detonate the bomb when we storm the beaches.
(10:28:43 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Pirate> :yarr:
(10:29:00 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Nods:: Yeah, that may work. The only way to be sure, of course, is to shut it off manually. Unfortunately...well, take a look at this.
(10:29:08 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: walks over and looks ::
(10:29:57 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Brings up the security monitor feeds.:: The transport inhibitor wasn't a bluff. And they've got all the turbolifts covered. I don't fancy our chances at pulling off an assault crawling out of the jeffries tubes either.
(10:30:23 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Not in 30 minutes, anyway.
(10:30:37 PM) CdrTKirr: +Percy+ T'Kirr to Busard. The frequency is likely within the fifty to two hundred thousand range. Unfortunately we'll need time to narrow it down further.
(10:31:57 PM) Percy: +T'Kirr+ Alright. You cover from 50 to 150K, and we'll work on the rest from here. Let me know if you get a ping, or if there's anything else we can do.
(10:32:15 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: stares at the tactical layout :: This is just what they invented site to site transports for. If not for those damn inhibitors, we could just beam in behind them.
(10:33:05 PM) CdrTKirr: +Percy+ Understood. :: cuts comm and focuses ::
(10:33:21 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Yeah, well...that's why they invented transport inhibitors, sir. Short of TWO Hail Mary's courtesy of Percy's shiny brain, or a literal act of God, I don't see how...
(10:33:25 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Behind them?
(10:33:58 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: looks up from the display :: How.
(10:34:11 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Hey, could someone bring up an exterior view of that freighter?
(10:34:21 PM) CdrHarper: :: puts it on screen ::
(10:34:27 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Thanks.
(10:34:38 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Stares at it silently for several long moments.::
(10:35:25 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: You want to board their ship and come through our own airlock.
(10:36:22 PM) ColDougMcKnight: I do. Even if we could transport over, it'd be detected, and better odds or not, we're still talking about a bloodbath with the sort of firepower they can bring to bear with some warning. But...THERE.
(10:36:24 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks over from her work ::
(10:36:43 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Points to one of the larger hull breaches::
(10:37:17 PM) LtKuari [Mibbit@] entered the room.
(10:37:27 PM) ColDougMcKnight: It's not an airlock...hell, it's the wrong size and shape to attempt any sort of docking. But I could get into that just fine.
(10:37:47 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: Looks :: It's a hole in their defense, that's for sure.
(10:38:41 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Sir, our new assault armor is vacuum rated for a period of 20 minutes, but I've never gotten a chance to test that. With your permission, I'd like to rectify that.
(10:39:09 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods :: It's our best shot. If the detonator is offline even for a few minutes you've got a good window.
(10:39:41 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Computer> Warning! This ship will self destruct in twenty five minutes!
(10:40:21 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Then I'll need an encrypted line, a pilot in an EV suit and if Percy or a couple of her best people can be spared, so much the better.
(10:40:56 PM) Percy left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).
(10:41:25 PM) CdrTKirr: :: checks over the list of running algorithms as the computer tests frequencies ::
(10:41:39 PM) Percy [] entered the room.
(10:41:46 PM) Percy: (Crap, sorry about that.)
(10:43:29 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: That we can do. :: turns toward the front of the bridge :: Kate, get in your flightsuit and prepare a runabout. Hurry.
(10:43:48 PM) CdrHarper: :: secures helm :: Aye sir. :: enters the TL :: Assault bay.
(10:44:01 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Puts in a call for a replacement on tactical, secures the station, and then stabs his comm badge:: +Security+ Syvek!
(10:44:22 PM) LtSyvek: +McKnight+ Yes sir.
(10:44:24 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::In OTHER TL.::
(10:44:57 PM) CdrHarper: :: runs from the TL into the locker room and suits up faster than she ever has, then grabs her helmet :: Shit shit shit.
(10:45:10 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Syvek+ Scramble rapid response squad one, and meet me in shuttlebay 3. And bring my armor. I'll explain when I get there.
(10:45:10 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Percy+ Blackthorne to Busard.
(10:45:22 PM) Percy: +Blackthorne+ Busard here, sir.
(10:45:25 PM) LtSyvek: +McKnight+ Yes sir, on our way.
(10:45:39 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Busard+ Meet Colonel McKnight in shuttlebay three, bring your tools.
(10:45:48 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (And an EV suit!)
(10:45:51 PM) HjK [] entered the room.
(10:45:59 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Busard+ And an EV suit.
(10:46:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Riri, that you? )
(10:46:37 PM) HjK: (mhm)
(10:46:47 PM) CdrHarper: :: runs back to the TL, carrying her helmet :: Shuttlebay three. Shit shit shit.
(10:46:55 PM) CdrHarper: (Pop on vent and I'll narrate)
(10:47:02 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Pop on vent and I'll narrate)
(10:47:34 PM) HjK: (lemme switch boxes.)
(10:47:38 PM) CdrTKirr: :: tap, tap, tap ::
(10:48:05 PM) LtSyvek: :: scrambles the squad and grabs McKnight's armor after suiting up in his own ::
(10:48:10 PM) LtSyvek: Move out!
(10:48:25 PM) Percy: +Blackthorne+ Yes...sir. :: An EV suit? What the crap was she going to do with-oh right. Space. She grabs and puts one on as quick as possible, before grabbing her toolkit and running as fast as it is possible to run in an EV suit to Shuttlebay 3::
(10:48:45 PM) CdrTKirr: ( rofl oh right, space )
(10:49:51 PM) CdrHarper: :: runs into the shuttlebay and starts powering up a runabout ::
(10:50:09 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Computer> Warning! This ship will self destruct in twenty minutes!
(10:50:20 PM) CdrHarper: :: hears that :: Shiiiiiiiit.
(10:50:47 PM) HjK left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).
(10:50:48 PM) LtSyvek: :: runs into shuttlebay three with a squad, carrying McKnight's armor ::
(10:50:53 PM) CdrTKirr: :: listens to the audio and squints at the wall panel, wishing the computer would computer faster ::
(10:51:05 PM) HjK [] entered the room.
(10:51:08 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: looks over at the wall panel :: Any luck yet?
(10:51:09 PM) Percy: :: Running running running! If it weren't for all that fancy Star Trek futuristic medicine and crap, she'd totally have to stop and take out an inhaler...running running running and THERE!::
(10:51:15 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Arriving in shuttlebay 3 ahead of the squad, he does the only prep he can. He throws off the top of his fatigues, leaving him in the regulation t-shirt, and shouts to Harper:: Calm down, Commander. If we screw this up, you're the only one who'll probably survive.
(10:51:29 PM) CdrHarper: What the shit. :(
(10:51:52 PM) Percy: :: Pant pant pant:: Have I mentioned I hate that fucking computer voice? If we survive this, I'm changing it to James Bond.
(10:51:58 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Announcement: Make sure you have your areas set up, then feel free to write notes home in case the countdown doesnt stop. :: sighs ::
(10:52:01 PM) ColDougMcKnight: It's the armor. Awkward with a loose shirt underneath.
(10:52:36 PM) CdrTKirr: :: irritatingly :: Unless eliminating frequencies fifty-thousand through eighty-three thousand can be considered luck, then no.
(10:53:19 PM) Percy: Right. Now you've gone and distracted me, sir. Thanks. Now, for the saving the day?
(10:53:32 PM) Percy: (Mike's gotta throw laundry in the dryer. He'll be right back)
(10:53:36 PM) CdrTKirr: ( You guys are making me lol )
(10:53:52 PM) CdrHarper: :: frantically powers up the runabout and completes the sequence :: She's ready to fly!
(10:54:10 PM) Percy: (Thank you, thank you. We'll be here all...the next couple hours.)
(10:54:22 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: frowns :: This computer needs to be faster.
(10:54:35 PM) LtSyvek: :: stomps into the runabout with the squad after passing the Colonel his armor ::
(10:55:41 PM) CdrHarper: :: fidgets :: Shit.. shit... shit.
(10:56:20 PM) CdrTKirr: It's a delicate process. The checks have to be run through a security filter to avoid setting off any possible hack detection. :: points to another part of the panel :: Remote detonator disabling 101.
(10:56:35 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I think I was out sick that day.
(10:56:37 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Rushing into the runabout with said armor in hand, he nods to Harper, even as he begins the process of donning the armor.:: Close it up. Congrats, Syvek. You're my squire today.
(10:57:09 PM) Percy: :: Runs in after them::
(10:57:12 PM) CdrTKirr: (Aw, McKnight's a knight)
(10:57:28 PM) Eraya_Gallagher: ( LOL )
(10:57:30 PM) LtSyvek: :: perks an eyebrow under his faceplate :: Should I have brought a lance?
(10:57:42 PM) CdrHarper: :: buttons the hatch and lifts off the deck :: +Bridge+ Bridge, this is Firefly, the bus is leaving.
(10:57:48 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Sighs:: It means help me get this on faster.
(10:58:08 PM) LtSyvek: Ah, yes sir. :: starts bolting on armor ::
(10:58:24 PM) Percy: :: Watches Syvek slightly jealously:: (:-P)
(10:58:25 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Harper+ Good hunting.
(10:58:43 PM) CdrTKirr: :: gets the results from Percy's team and frowns disagreeably ::
(10:58:49 PM) CdrHarper: :: flies the runabout out the door and approaches the freighter ::
(10:58:56 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Okay, here's the plan. Firefly is parking us right outside the Bangalore, specifically in the vicinity of a hull breach large enough to accomodate a strike force, provided we take it one or two at a time.
(10:59:38 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: walks over to the viewscreen and watches as the computer computes ::
(10:59:44 PM) LtKuari: :: x_X on floor under the pirates next to a ticking time bomb ::
(11:00:00 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Docking, sadly, is not possible, so we will be EVA while in transit. Now, an emergency bulkhead is in place to make sure the Bangalore still has atmo. Percy, we need you to get us past it. Cutting is okay, an actual over-ride would be better.
(11:00:35 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sits back down ::
(11:00:39 PM) Percy: :: Puts down the torch, a little disappointed, and takes out a hacking device. :: Gotcha.
(11:00:43 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Computer> Warning! This ship will self destruct in fifteen minutes!
(11:01:01 PM) ColDougMcKnight: And so that we don't ourselves CAUSE an explosive decompression, Firefly will extend the Missouri's shields around the hole. Questions, comments?
(11:01:13 PM) CdrHarper: Extend the shields, right.
(11:01:28 PM) LtSyvek: None sir.
(11:02:00 PM) Percy: Let's go kick some ass.
(11:02:03 PM) Percy: Sir.
(11:02:18 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Grins:: Hooah.
(11:02:25 PM) LtSyvek: Hoo. Ah.
(11:02:38 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Firefly, just give us some warning before you open up, so we can switch to onboard oxygen.
(11:02:44 PM) CdrHarper: :: sidles up next to the hole in the Bangalore all quiet-like ::
(11:02:53 PM) CdrHarper: I'm getting the door as close as I can.
(11:03:02 PM) CdrHarper: :: nudges in ever so softly ::
(11:03:07 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks up promptly as the computer beeps. One hundred thousand? Seriously? :: Imaginative, these pirates. I have the frequency.
(11:03:14 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: watching the surreptitious "docking" ::
(11:03:21 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: It was a nice even number?
(11:03:37 PM) CdrTKirr: Indeed. Shall I attempt to disable it now?
(11:03:46 PM) CdrHarper: OK, that's as close as I can safely get. :: extends the shields ::
(11:04:01 PM) CdrHarper: Switch your air supplies.
(11:04:06 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: watches the viewscreen on her computer :: Well that looks interesting.
(11:04:10 PM) CdrHarper: :: switches hers as well ::
(11:04:30 PM) Percy: :: Le Sweetch.::
(11:04:37 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Wait until they're aboard. I don't want this surprise to be ruined.
(11:04:44 PM) LtSyvek: :: switches ::
(11:04:44 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Activates the armored oxygen tank situated underneath his pack::
(11:04:58 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Okay, we're all good. Activate magnetic boots.
(11:04:59 PM) CdrTKirr: Acknowledged, standing by for your order.
(11:05:18 PM) CdrHarper: :: opens the hatch ::
(11:06:10 PM) Percy: :: Preps, then once given a go, heads out to begin the hopefully not long process of overriding the airlock seal.::
(11:07:11 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::And as she does so, McKnight clips a guide rope to her suit, so that if she's the first over, she can start a conga line of sorts, thus getting everyone onboard quickly and safely.::
(11:07:18 PM) CdrHarper: +Bridge+ Bridge, Firefly. They're knocking on the door now.
(11:07:37 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sits back down :: +Harper+ Acknowledged, Commander.
(11:08:00 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: eyes the countdown ::
(11:08:23 PM) CdrTKirr: :: waits out the suspense watching the viewscreen, hand near the Go button ::
(11:08:41 PM) CdrHarper: :: holds the runabout as steady as she can ::
(11:09:56 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Waits on the spaceward side of the bulkhead, rifle at the ready.:: Percy, I know you hate to be badgered while you work, but I'm gonna need an ETA soon. If this is gonna take too long, we'll have no choice but to use explosives.
(11:10:21 PM) LtSyvek: :: has made it across, and waits, rifle at the ready ::
(11:10:27 PM) Percy: :: Concentrates on her display after hooking up several cables to the circuits in the door. And, after locating the local power supply and control box for said circuits, she manages to swap a few things round, unlocking the airlock.::
(11:10:38 PM) Percy: How about now? Is now good?
(11:11:09 PM) CdrHarper: :: overhears the comm chatter :: +bridge+ They've kicked the lock.
(11:11:32 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Now is fantastic. Percy, please take up your place in formation. First squad, move out.
(11:11:47 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Harper+ That's "picked," Firefly.
(11:12:00 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Atlantis+ Bridge, we're in. Do we have a kill switch, or no?
(11:12:02 PM) Percy: :: Takes her place in formation::
(11:12:12 PM) LtSyvek: :: takes point through the door :
(11:12:13 PM) CdrTKirr: :: triple-checks the package content she's prepared to send, needlessly making sure she hasn't missed anything ::
(11:12:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +McKnight+ We do.
(11:12:42 PM) LtSyvek: This room is clear.
(11:13:04 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ Excellent. I'll advise you once we're in position to begin our assault.
(11:13:15 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +McKnight+ Standing by.
(11:13:33 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Computer> Warning! This ship will self destruct in ten minutes!
(11:13:41 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: ( :: hears increasingly intense music in the background wonders where its coming from :: )
(11:13:48 PM) CdrHarper: :: grumbles ::
(11:13:52 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +First squad+ Switch to internal comms, watch your HUDs, and move quick, but quiet. We can't afford a firefight until we clear this tub.
(11:13:54 PM) CdrTKirr: (That's five minutes on detonator? Craaaap)
(11:14:28 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (We're gonna play this one dramatically close! Imagine that.)
(11:14:30 PM) Percy: +Squads in general+ Five minutes until detonator reaches zero.
(11:14:38 PM) LtSyvek: :: switches over and approaches the next door ::
(11:15:17 PM) LtKuari: :: twitches, her subconscious thinking the pirates are mighty quiet for being so close to going boom ::
(11:15:21 PM) Percy: (I'ma do theme music! Doo doo DOOO DOO ba-da BUM BUM da DA daDAAaa....Weeeeeoooooweeee!)
(11:15:28 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (rofl)
(11:16:31 PM) LtSyvek: :: moves through the next door and secures the room with the squad :: Clear!
(11:17:07 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> Most of the pirates are still in the area, but just nervously awaiting the assault they assume is imminent.
(11:18:07 PM) CdrTKirr: :: starts to get nervous, just an inkling, as even Vulcans don't want to go splody ::
(11:18:13 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::DOES see some contacts on infrared, but they're two decks up, and not moving. Apparently, they have THIS ship secured enough that they don't feel they need patrols. Too bad for them.::
(11:18:49 PM) LtSyvek: It appears clear to our airlock, Colonel.
(11:18:52 PM) Eraya_Gallagher: ( LOL )
(11:18:52 PM) Percy: +Comm+ Is it just me, or is there a suspicious lack of "Blammity" going on here?
(11:19:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: looks at T'Kirr reassuringly ::
(11:19:21 PM) CdrTKirr: (No that's just Mike's uncanny ability to stretch time)
(11:20:41 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Squad 1+ Believe me, it's coming. We're coming up on the airlock. Syvek and I will take point, neutralize the first sentries, and take cover. Then, follow up with grenades. And by all means improvise as need be, so long as we get Percy to that bomb.
(11:21:08 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ McKnight to bridge. We're in position, repeat, we're in position. Execute.
(11:21:13 PM) LtSyvek: :: steadies himself ::
(11:21:29 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: the reassuring look turns to determination :: Do it.
(11:21:37 PM) CdrTKirr: :: hits Go and the computer accompanies the fateful transmission with a pretty little series of "message sent" beeps and checks sensors :: The detonator has been disabled.
(11:21:49 PM) Percy: :: Prepares wrench::
(11:22:01 PM) Percy: :: And also something to disable the bomb with.::
(11:22:09 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Heh.)
(11:22:11 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +McKnight+ Success, the detonator is diarmed.
(11:22:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: *disarmed
(11:22:25 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ Acknowledged.
(11:22:26 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Everyone get yourself ready for the incoming... :: mutters :: ...or the end.
(11:22:43 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Squad+ We have a go! Move!
(11:23:09 PM) LtSyvek: :: moves out with McKnight through the airlock, finding some very surprised pirates who he begins shooting at, and a Kuari on the floor ::
(11:23:33 PM) LtSyvek: :: lobs a grenade as he takes cover ::
(11:24:03 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Takes off for the airlock at a full run, running smack dab into a pirate just on their side of the airlock. He gets a rifle barrel to the rubs and the rifle butt to the temple before McKnight is past him and firing as he rushes to the nearest doorway for cover.::
(11:24:23 PM) LtSyvek: :: the grenade explodes and he advances in the ensuing chaos::
(11:24:35 PM) LtSyvek: :: eyes on Kuari long enough to note that she's breathing ::
(11:24:38 PM) Percy: :: Takes cover, then looks for an opening to get to the bomb. Or at least a sort of opening.::
(11:24:45 PM) CdrTKirr: I'm reading energy weapon fire. They've engaged.
(11:24:58 PM) LtKuari: :: blinks awake as the concussion of air smashes into her senses ::
(11:25:02 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sees the countdown at 07:30 remaining ::
(11:25:42 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> The pirates lose a good few in the surprised first moments, but soon the cooridor is thick with their return fire...and the bulkheads quickly begin to char as the pirates swivel their disruptor cannon around and use it to chew up the hallway!
(11:25:42 PM) LtKuari: :: hears shouting and guns blazing and flips herself over, gaining her feet and picking up her rifle ::
(11:25:47 PM) LtSyvek: :: can easily see the pirates through the smoke with his visor and takes out some efore he makes cover ::
(11:26:25 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods to T'Kirr ::
(11:26:36 PM) LtKuari: :: starts firing at the front line of pirates from behind ::
(11:26:55 PM) LtSyvek: :: takes another grenade and throws it toward the fixed gun ::
(11:27:45 PM) Percy: :: Waits for the disrupter cannon to be disrupted.::
(11:27:53 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> The gun is armored enough to remain functional, but the concussive force is enough to temporarily disorient the gunner. Temporarily.
(11:27:54 PM) LtKuari: :: unfortunately makes for a rather large target and his cuffed across the head by the butt of a rifle ::
(11:28:26 PM) Percy: :: Makes a run for the bomb!:: +Squads+ Keep 'em off me! I'm going for the bomb!
(11:28:40 PM) LtSyvek: :: takes advantage of the disorientation to take several shots at the gunner :
(11:29:48 PM) LtKuari: :: shakes her head from her slumped position against the wall and glances around for her missing gun ::
(11:30:07 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Uses the lull to rise to his feet and advance, firing at the infrared signatures in his path...including adding his fire to Syvek's in the direction of the gun. Most of the phaser bolts impact harmlessly on the duranium blast shield, but eventually, one of them nails the poor bastard in the top of the head.::
(11:30:37 PM) LtSyvek: :: advances and secures the gun :
(11:30:58 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Fixed gun is neutralized! Syvek, remind me to look over the camera feeds later. If that was you, I owe you a drink.
(11:31:15 PM) LtSyvek: :: almost smirks ::
(11:31:30 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Computer> Warning! This ship will self destruct in five minutes!
(11:31:33 PM) LtKuari: :: sees Percy running by, and snarls, running for and alongside her :: Jump on!
(11:32:30 PM) Percy: :: Has an awesome explosion in her head when she hears Kuari, and jumps on. The girlish glee, however, will have to wait. She does, however, whack a pirate in the head on their way to the bomb::
(11:33:45 PM) LtKuari: :: runs for the bomb, jumping over unconscious pirates and knocking another violently against the wall ::
(11:34:25 PM) LtSyvek: :: shoots that guy that got knocked against the wall ::
(11:34:40 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> Remember how people kept wondering why the pirates seemed so sedate? That's because they're missing a few guys. Who have used the intervening twenty minutes to force their way into the MAIN shuttlebay.
(11:35:15 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> The shuttlebay doors being blown outward by phaser fire to make way for three departing shuttlecraft is a pretty solid indicator that they won't ACTUALLY "be right back".
(11:35:22 PM) Eraya_Gallagher: ( afk )
(11:36:16 PM) LtSyvek: The bomb has been secured, but all pirates are not accounted for.
(11:36:50 PM) Percy: :: Dramatically dive rolls (because what Star Trek SL would be complete without one) over to the bomb, and begins disarming it.:: This'll take a couple of minutes, tops.
(11:36:52 PM) CdrTKirr: :: beep, beep :: Admiral, the shuttlebay has been infiltrated. I'm reading three shuttlecraft powering up.
(11:37:21 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sits down at HOps :: They've blown the damn doors open.
(11:37:25 PM) LtKuari: :: gets shot and collapses near the bomb, once again making a rather large target ::
(11:37:43 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Pirate CAPTAIN!> Take us out, Mr. Zulu.
(11:37:47 PM) ColDougMcKnight: FULL IMPULSE!
(11:38:00 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: engages tractor beam on the shuttles while they're in a tight group ::
(11:38:23 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Now where do you think you're going.
(11:38:39 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +McKnight+ Colonel, status.
(11:38:45 PM) LtKuari: :: thanks her hide for her rather spiffy-but-not-complete armor and growls, standing to shield Percy from fire :: Preferably less than a couple!
(11:39:01 PM) LtSyvek: :: shoots that other guy what shot Kuari ::
(11:39:53 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Computer> Warning! This ship will self destruct in two minutes!
(11:39:53 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ The pirates, what pirates we can find anyway, are in retreat. Area around the bomb is secure. Let's just hope that interference frequency lasts.
(11:40:34 PM) LtKuari: :: picks up a pirate gun, but the trigger isn't well configured for her claws, so she roars in frustration and throws it at a pirate's head and knocks him out ::
(11:40:49 PM) Percy: Right! :: Disconnects the last array.:: DONE.
(11:40:58 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +McKnight+ Has the bomb been disarmed?
(11:41:07 PM) Percy: +Blackthorne+ The bomb is kaput, sir.
(11:41:22 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Computer> Warning! This ship will self destruct in one minute!
(11:41:42 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ Oh, thank God. Yes, sir!
(11:41:53 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sighs in relief :: Computer, cancel auto-destruct sequences, authorization Blackthorne omega pi gamma four four two.
(11:42:08 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Computer> Auto-destruct sequence has been cancelled. Have a nice day!
(11:42:19 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: cheers ::
(11:42:27 PM) CdrTKirr: :: closes her eyes in relief ::
(11:42:28 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +McKnight+ Pirates have apparently tried to escape in three shuttles from the main shuttlebay.
(11:42:47 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Hope no one wrote anything they regret in those mails to home. :: laughs ::
(11:42:47 PM) Percy: :: Expels a huge sigh of relief:: Someone owes us all drinks.
(11:43:04 PM) CdrTKirr: ( lol Carre )
(11:43:11 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +McKnight+ I have them tractored.
(11:44:33 PM) LtKuari: And a rather large bar of chocolate, thank you very much! :: starts sniffing around the pirate bodies, making sure they stay down ::
(11:45:11 PM) Percy: Mmm...chocolate.
(11:45:32 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (hehe)
(11:45:33 PM) LtSyvek: :: scanning the area to ensure it remains secure ::
(11:45:39 PM) CdrTKirr: Containment fields holding around the shuttle bay.
(11:47:05 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Five minutes!)
(11:47:40 PM) CdrTKirr: Shall I recall Commander Harper?
(11:47:52 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods :: Looks like they won't need the ride back.
(11:49:02 PM) Percy: Hehehe...can we make them walk the plank?
(11:49:11 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Alright, first squad, hold this position. I'm calling down marines now to sweep the freighter.
(11:50:18 PM) Percy: :: Adrenalhine high is making her silly. This is my excuse and I'm sticking to it.::
(11:50:23 PM) LtSyvek: :: sets up a perimeter around the nuke ::
(11:50:36 PM) CdrTKirr: +Harper+ T'Kirr to Harper. All hands accounted for aboard Atlantis and the pirate threat has been neutralized. Return to the main shuttle bay. They could use your help down there returning a few of our vessels.
(11:51:46 PM) LtKuari: :: spots McKnight and salutes :: Mighty glad to see you, sir.
(11:51:53 PM) CdrHarper: +T'Kirr+ Main shuttlebay, aye.
(11:52:07 PM) CdrHarper: :: closes the hatch and pulls away from the bus stop ::
(11:52:42 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(11:52:44 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(11:52:45 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(11:52:48 PM) LtKuari: :: pauses ::
(11:52:54 PM) CdrTKirr: :: pauses ::
(11:53:14 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Niiiiiice sim, folks!
(11:54:06 PM) CdrTKirr: Bombs, pirates, and congo lines, oh my!
(11:54:48 PM) Percy: Yarr!
(11:54:52 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: ...and bad music
(11:54:55 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Pirates make everything better.
(11:54:58 PM) Percy: ...:-(
(11:55:03 PM) Percy: *sniffle*
(11:55:11 PM) HjK: I liked the music...
(11:55:13 PM) HjK: <<;
(11:55:20 PM) CdrTKirr: Bah, Carre had no one to doctor on. She waited in bated breath the whole sim!
(11:55:38 PM) Percy: Ah, I see. It's withdrawal.
(11:55:43 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: S' me. >.>
(11:55:57 PM) Percy: Puddington> ::Trips over a cord into the reactor.::
(11:56:09 PM) Percy: :: Survives somehow, but has severe burns that must be treated!::
(11:56:13 PM) Percy: ...Better?
(11:56:57 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Kuari got shot like eight times1
(11:58:12 PM) LtKuari: Pfft.
(11:58:36 PM) LtKuari: THIS sim I got shot only once.
(11:59:01 PM) LtKuari: The other one was the melee end of a rifle.
(11:59:57 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: True.
(12:00:06 AM) LtKuari: And the others were me whooping ass!
(12:00:25 AM) LtKuari: Rawr.
(12:01:28 AM) LtKuari: I may not have space stuff, but at least I win at being tuff.
(12:01:43 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Rawr
(12:01:49 AM) LtKuari: O.o
(12:02:13 AM) CdrTKirr: Watch it, she might like that too much.
(12:02:34 AM) CdrTKirr: Nice fight, Mike.
(12:03:16 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Sure was.
(12:04:12 AM) HjK left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).
(12:06:35 AM) ColDougMcKnight: Thank you!
(12:06:44 AM) ColDougMcKnight: Sorry, I was distracted with something.
(12:08:20 AM) CdrHarper left the room.
