(10:42:04 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Santiago> Great idea. I'll send word over.
(10:43:34 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: grins broadly, which lights up her face :: Yes! I was so fortunate to be chosen as his last. Other people find him a bit odd but we got on very well. The research that we did was just... amazing! I think people will be VERY interested when all of our findings are published....
(10:44:25 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Harper+ Commander, make an announcement that there will be a crew mixer in holodeck one at 2000. Load up the Academy promenade program.

(10:44:41 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: continues :: I mean, who DOESN'T want to know about the subspace warping principle's effects on stellar cartography as we know it today? Most of the probability equations we have been using all this time could be WAY off! Wouldn't that be amazing?

(10:45:17 PM) CdrTKirr: :: exits the TL after the short ride and heads down the corridor :: Your papers are quite insightful. It's no wonder you got position here as Chief of Science.
(10:45:54 PM) CdrHarper: +SHIPWIDE+ All hands, this is Commander Harper. Admiral Blackthorne would like you all to know that there will be a Discovery-Atlantis crew mixer in Holodeck One in thirty minutes. Dress for San Francisco weather.

(10:47:51 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods as David exits ::

(10:50:48 PM) CdrHarper: Thank you, sir! :: exits to the TL, heads to her quarters ::
(10:52:54 PM) CdrTKirr: Of course. :: walks towards the door as it swishes open and sets her bags down inside :: It's standard, set for guest. I suggest you program the lock to recognize you before you leave.
(10:53:25 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: enters her quarters and reaches for a nice wool suit, matches it up with some low heels and quickly twists up her hair :: This will have to do for the party.
(10:53:35 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Right! Right. :: looks around the room :: This is great! Thank you so much!
(10:53:42 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sits down in the center seat and reads up on some news from the Discovery ::
(10:54:05 PM) Cubit: :: pulls out his 'dress' baton and query beeps Carre ::

I guess that went okay. :: lets Anna out of the carrier and sets up food, water, and litter for her, and programs the lock to recognize herself :: Um. Computer? Please display route from current location to holodeck one.
(10:59:16 PM) CdrHarper: :: heads to the holodeck, just wearing her uniform, and programs it to the Admiral's specifications ::
(11:00:15 PM) CdrHarper: :: steps through onto the Academy promenade :: Computer, raise temperature five degrees. Dammit.
(11:01:33 PM) CdrTKirr: :: returns to her quarters and picks out an off-white flowing tunic and pants combo, a modern Vulcan style ::

(11:32:24 PM) LtKuari: :: stops herself from glomping Carre against the bar as it would probably be a bad idea to hurt one's doctor and stops just short :: Hi, Doctor Carre! This is Alexis Wright! She's new! Now I'm not the newest anymore.
(11:32:41 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: pulls out some chocolate from Cubits storage area :: Thanks buddy!
(11:33:16 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: grins :: Hello, Kuari. Hello Alexis, nice to meet you!
(11:33:19 PM) CdrTKirr: :: spots the chocolate and starts unconsciously thumping the holographic ground with her tail ::
(11:33:21 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: all smiles, sticks her now cheese-free hand out at the doctor :: Hi! Alexis Wright! Pleased to meet you!
(11:33:23 PM) CdrHarper: :: turns as they arrive margarita in hand ::
(11:33:33 PM) CdrTKirr: ( That'd be Kuari... )
(11:34:06 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: unwraps a candybar and tosses it to Kuari ::
(11:34:23 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Alexis, care for a piece of chocolate?
(11:34:26 PM) LtKuari: :: catches it in her mouth ::
(11:34:33 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: watches the candy fly past her and tries not to openly salivate ::
(11:34:52 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Um... that would be lovely, thank you.
(11:35:06 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: But I won't catch it in my mouth.
(11:35:17 PM) CdrHarper: :: snickers ::
(11:35:18 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: Hands Alexis a piece of chocolate, still wrapped ::
(11:35:19 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: ...Today.
(11:35:47 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: laughs :: I unwrap it for Kuari as she has problems getting the wrapper off sometimes.
(11:35:57 PM) LtKuari: :: sniffs Alexis :: You ever try smelling someone after eating chocolate? It's weird.
(11:36:12 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Thanks! :: forces herself to sloooooooooowly unwrap the chocolate and take tiny little nibbles, still makes a little unconscious moany noise with the first taste ::
(11:36:25 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: doesnt offer any to Kate ::
(11:36:29 PM) CdrHarper: :(
(11:36:44 PM) CdrHarper: :: has tequila, so there ::
(11:36:44 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: I can't say that I have. Does chocolate interfere with your olfactory processing? Fascinating! May I scan you?
(11:36:48 PM) LtKuari: Wrappers are horrible. Yet they trust me with a gun. :: shakes her head ::
(11:37:07 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Alexis, this is Kate Harper...she does....stuff.
(11:37:09 PM) LtKuari: Um. Sure. What are you looking for?
(11:37:22 PM) CdrHarper: Stuff. And things, even.
(11:38:11 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Piloting? Map reading? I know you do chocolate stealing, but I dont think its your job. :: grins ::
(11:38:27 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Oh, hi! Commander Harper, a pleasure! You are quite the pilot, I understand. :: nodding, surreptitiously pulling out her scanner and whispering to Kuari :: I just want to see if something happens to your sensory perception upon consumption of chocolate...
(11:38:37 PM) CdrTKirr: :: watches Kuari, Carre, Harper, and Alexis, feeling the estrogen ::
(11:38:55 PM) CdrHarper: :: smiles :: Nice to meet you, Lt. Wright, and thank you.
(11:39:18 PM) LtKuari: :: attempts to look at the scanner between her eyes, going crosseyed, then it hits her :: Ooh, Dr. Carre! I need more chocolate! Name of science! :: nods ::
(11:39:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: So that's our new science officer?
(11:39:51 PM) CdrHarper: I'm a bit of a zack of all trades.
(11:39:54 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: laughs and unwraps/tosses another chunk ::
(11:40:00 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: In fact, I think we may need multiple KINDS of chocolate to make sure our tests are valid. :: nods conspiratorially at Kuari ::
(11:40:15 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Your name is Zack? I thought it was Kathryn.
(11:40:17 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Its Jack! Jack-of-all-trades!
(11:40:19 PM) CdrTKirr: Alexis Wright, Lieutenant, Junior Grade. Quite brilliant, for a human.
(11:40:28 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: nonplussed :: her name is Jack?
(11:40:31 PM) CdrHarper: It is Kathryn. Jack? But he's right here.
(11:40:39 PM) JackCahalan: What?
(11:40:43 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: What?
(11:40:50 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: What?
(11:40:56 PM) CdrHarper: Who is to say Jack is better than Zack at trades?
(11:40:57 PM) LtKuari: :: snaps up the chocolate and stares at Alexis, as if helping to transmit data just by looking at her ::
(11:41:10 PM) JackCahalan: Now I'll have you know I'm pretty damn good at trades.
(11:41:13 PM) CdrHarper: What?
(11:41:30 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: She looks a little insane.
(11:41:41 PM) JackCahalan: At least the trade of tending bar!
(11:41:59 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Hmm, my doctor sense says you two are conspiring to relieve me of a large portion of my chocolate stash. Not. Going. To. Happen.
(11:42:09 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: There was a Zack in my graduating class, but he was only sorta okay at trades, so Jack is probably better. YOU must be Jack. Hi! :: introduces herself to the bartender ::
(11:42:21 PM) JackCahalan: Hi there, Alexis. What can I get you?
(11:42:25 PM) CdrTKirr: I've noticed intelligence outside my species tends to appear that way.
(11:42:32 PM) JackCahalan: :: flashes his award winning (tm) smile ::
(11:42:43 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Your ears are growing.
(11:43:08 PM) CdrTKirr: :: peers curiously at Ian :: I beg your pardon?
(11:43:23 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Well that's what they say about Vulcans when you get all smug like that.
(11:43:29 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: aside to Kuari :: now, take another bite and try to think of something really complicated, lets see if it disrupts your brain activity. What an interesting place for a brain!
(11:44:04 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Syvek> :smugvulcan:
(11:44:13 PM) CdrTKirr: :: defensively :: I wasn't being smug.
(11:44:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Of course not.
(11:44:45 PM) LtKuari: Um.. bite? I don't bite chocolate.. I eat it whole.
(11:44:52 PM) LtKuari: :: looks to Carre :: I need another piece!
(11:44:59 PM) CdrHarper: :: finds her margarita again, confused ::
(11:45:03 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: looks over at T'Kirr and spots the Admiral :: Oh, is that Admiral Blackthorn? Should I go introduce myself?
(11:45:36 PM) LtKuari: :: ears wilt, giving Alexis puppy eyes :: No! You can do that later. You have science duties!
(11:45:43 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: to Kuari :: well... serving. I meant serving. Have you tried other kinds of refined sugar? Does anything else have this effect on your neural processing?
(11:46:04 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Certainly, you should. Experiments can be done later.
(11:46:25 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Have you tried...... marshmallows? Let me go meet the admiral and then we can try marshmallows.
(11:46:59 PM) LtKuari: :: opens her mouth to respond, but Alexis is already walking towards the Admiral, so she turns to Carre :: What's a marshmallow?
(11:47:02 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: smiles at Blackthorne :: He looks like he can hardly wait, and T'Kirr is there, I heard you already met her.
(11:47:33 PM) LtKuari: ( yay paradoxes! )
(11:47:35 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Spun sugar in a puffed shape.
(11:48:09 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Remind me and I'll make you an old earth treat called a s'more.
(11:48:27 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: nods at the Doctor and Kuari, puts her scanner away, and continues making her way to the Admiral ::
(11:49:07 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: You'll like it, it has chocolate in it.
(11:49:09 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: smiles at the new officer approaches ::
(11:49:16 PM) LtKuari: :: looks weary :: Does it have chocolate?
(11:49:27 PM) LtKuari: :: bounces :: Ooh!
(11:49:27 PM) CdrHarper: :: loudly slurping the bottom of the margarita with a straw ::
(11:50:08 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: puts on her most winning (nervous )smile :: Hello, Commander T'Kirr, pleased to see you again. And you must be Admiral Blackthorne?
(11:50:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: That's right, and you must be Lt. Wright. Welcome aboard!
(11:50:41 PM) CdrTKirr: :: nods to Alexis ::
(11:51:06 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Thank you, sir! I'm very excited to be part of your team. Thank you for choosing me to accompany you. I won't let you down!
(11:51:28 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: smiles and nods :: I know you won't, or I wouldn't have selected you to serve on Third Fleet's flagship.
(11:51:39 PM) LtKuari: :: stands tall on two legs, scanning the crowd :: Where's the colonel?
(11:51:41 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: flushes with pleasure ::
(11:52:08 PM) CdrTKirr: :: watches Alexis' reaction ::
(11:52:25 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Colonel?
(11:52:43 PM) LtKuari: :: peers over heads :: McKnight. Isn't he here? Meh.
(11:53:21 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: I'm honored! I understand that tomorrow will be my physical and my official assumption of duty? Your ship has *excellent* lab facilities and I am looking forward to putting them to work.
(11:53:24 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I think hes probably still dealing with pirate fallout.
(11:53:56 PM) LtKuari: :: slouches :: He's missing the party.
(11:54:00 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: That's correct, Lieutenant. The equipment aboard a Sovereign class is state of the art.
(11:54:00 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: starts daydreaming about all of the data analysis she can do in that lab ::
(11:54:15 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (five minute warning!)
(11:54:46 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Yeah, I'm sure he knows it too. He'll be grumpy by the time he does show up. Lots of documentation in situations like this.
(11:55:08 PM) CdrHarper: I still have a stack of paperwork to do.
(11:55:15 PM) CdrTKirr: :: watches Alexis' eyes lose focus :: If you like, I can give you a tour tomorrow. I was Chief of Science not long ago.
(11:55:26 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: smirks :: I finished all mine.
(11:55:28 PM) CdrTKirr: I know the facilities and the staff well.
(11:55:50 PM) CdrHarper: You didn't have to fly a high risk maneuver while exposed to space, either.
(11:55:50 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: motions Jack for a refill :: Its why I came for a couple of drinks!
(11:56:03 PM) JackCahalan: :: refills Kate and Roxy's drinks ::
(11:56:08 PM) LtKuari: I like McKnight. Almost as much as I like you. :: still looking for him in vain ::
(11:56:32 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: True, but I did have to take care of the wounded. Ours AND theirs.
(11:56:56 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Perfect! :: smiles over at the Commander :: I'm really looking forward to it! :: to both :: Forgive the intrusion, but I wanted to introduce myself. Let me know if there's anything I can help with!
(11:57:06 PM) CdrHarper: Well, since I owe the fact that I have internal organs to you, I won't complain. :: drinks up ::
(11:57:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Thank you, Lieutenant. Welcome aboard, once again.
(11:57:29 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: dryly :: I see you're preserving them well.
(11:58:01 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Thank you, sir! Commander! :: gives a short bow and heads back over toward Kuari and the others ::
(11:58:14 PM) CdrHarper: Well I figure if I need a new liver, you can do that, right?
(11:58:22 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: She's certainly excitable.
(11:58:34 PM) CdrTKirr: Indeed.
(11:59:09 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: pulls out her scanner again and points it at Kuari :: Okay, you should be metabolizing the samples now... how do you feel?
(11:59:11 PM) LtKuari: :: starts bouncing as Alexis returns ::
(11:59:22 PM) LtKuari: Happy!
(11:59:31 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Fascinating!
(11:59:34 PM) LtKuari: :: still bouncing :: Trying not to be loud. People don't like that.
(11:59:50 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: I have trouble with that sometimes too.
