Conversation with #ussatlantis at 10/20/2010 10:32:28 PM on VAdmBlackthorne@opus.il.us.darkmyst.org (irc)
(10:32:28 PM) The topic for #USSAtlantis is: Tonight we have to clean up the mess we made. Warp drive is offline, sickbay is full of wounded, and there are survivors spread across the fleet from our lost ships. Also, Renzik's whereabouts are presently unknown....

(10:32:36 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: There we go, didn't have ops
(10:33:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne has changed the topic to: Tonight we GTFO of this nebula so that we can smoothly segue into the next plot! All survivors of the lost ships are being moved to the Discovery, warp drive is being repaired, and the Gemini and Soyuz are chasing a possible trail left by the escaped Renzik and Coburn.

(10:35:29 PM) Percy: Will there be cake-damn.
(10:35:35 PM) Percy: ::Ahem::
(10:35:36 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Cake-damn?)
(10:35:43 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (No. But there will be cake.)
(10:35:48 PM) Percy: (Oh hooray!)
(10:36:38 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns to T'Kirr :: Have McKnight begin recalling his troops if he's satisfied.
(10:38:16 PM) CdrTKirr: :: nods curtly :: +McKnight+ T'Kirr to McKnight.
(10:38:23 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Busard+ Blackthorne to Engineering.
(10:39:35 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +T'Kirr+ McKnight here. Go ahead.
(10:39:59 PM) Percy: +Blackthorne+ Busard here.
(10:40:05 PM) CdrTKirr: +McKnight+ We're preparing to move the fleet. What's your status?
(10:40:12 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Busard+ How are things going on the warp drive?
(10:41:29 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Rachel had to step out for a minute, so you're not waiting on the response.)
(10:41:49 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: puts that call on hold ::
(10:41:57 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: muzak begins to play in engineering ::
(10:42:54 PM) CdrTKirr: ( lol )
(10:43:27 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Gemini and Soyuz re-enter the station's area.
(10:44:09 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +T'Kirr+ Basically secure. We're still getting sporadic reports of hold outs here and there deciding to give us some trouble, but they're not organized or in force, and they're cut off from any heavy weapons. I assume we'll be leaving some sort of security presence there. I'll be willing to pass the reigns within the next ten minutes.
(10:44:47 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (*here)
(10:45:04 PM) CdrTKirr: +McKnight+ :: glances sidelong at Blackthorne ::
(10:45:08 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: overhears and nods ::
(10:45:13 PM) CdrTKirr: ( lol hold that thought )
(10:45:33 PM) CdrTKirr: +McKnight+ Very good. Contact us when you're ready for beamout.
(10:46:02 PM) CdrTKirr: ( Think I made up that word )
(10:46:45 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Star Trek IV)
(10:48:06 PM) Percy: +Blackthorne+ Proceedures are going steadily. We've got about an hour before we're fully back online, but according to my readings, the warp core is stable, as are all connections to it.
(10:48:43 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Busard+ By fully back online, do you mean we can at least make low warp?
(10:50:19 PM) LtKuari: :: patrols mid-ship ::
(10:52:21 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: does computery things ::
(10:52:22 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Reports come in to Wright's console that the trail was a dead-end.
(10:52:54 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: swears under her breath :: The trail was no good, Admiral.
(10:53:08 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns and pauses :: ... Damn.
(10:53:15 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Slippery son of a bitch.
(10:55:00 PM) Percy: +Blackthorne+ Correct. After that, it should be only another half hour or so before full warp is possible. It's a pretty quick warm up procedure.
(10:55:16 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Busard+ Excellent. Get her ready, we're about to fly.
(10:55:29 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +T'Kirr+ Atlantis, reporting in as promised.
(10:56:30 PM) CdrTKirr: +McKnight+ Stand by for transport.
(10:56:35 PM) CdrHarper: :: hears that and starts checking over numbers ::
(10:57:41 PM) CdrTKirr: ACTION> McKnight's troops begin shimmering off the station and onto Atlantis.
(10:57:45 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Wright, coordinate the retrieval of our troops in transport batches.
(10:58:06 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns to the chair arm and taps out some orders for Gemini and Soyuz ::
(10:58:16 PM) CdrTKirr: :: reviews reports from not only different departments to make sure they're ready to get underway, but from the fleet as well ::
(10:59:02 PM) Percy: +Blackthorne+ Yessir.
(10:59:23 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +T'Kirr+ If at all possible, we've got 20 plus prisoners down here. If the rest of the fleet's willing to put some up, I'd prefer not to have them all in the same place, less still when that place is my brig.
(11:01:07 PM) CdrTKirr: +McKnight+ Agreed. I'll arrange it.
(11:01:21 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns to T'Kirr again ::
(11:01:49 PM) CdrTKirr: :: taps distractedly at her console ::
(11:01:52 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Have the Colonel leave the prisoners behind and transfer command down there to security forces from Gemini and Soyuz. They'll be staying here until additonal ships arrive.
(11:02:11 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: This station is far too nice to abandon. I think it'll make a great forward base.
(11:02:24 PM) CdrTKirr: Security from the Gemini and Soyuz, but not our own?
(11:02:32 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: is coordinating in the background ::
(11:02:58 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Any prisoners that especially wants to stick it to, he can send to Discovery. They're heading home.
(11:03:02 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: We're going on.
(11:03:33 PM) CdrTKirr: Very well.
(11:04:42 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: And tell him...
(11:04:47 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: grins :: That he can name the place.
(11:07:16 PM) CdrTKirr: :: perks eyebrow at him :: +McKnight+ T'Kirr to McKnight. The prisoners will be staying aboard the station with securty forces from the Gemini an d Soyuz. One more transport should take care of you and the rest of Atlantis' troops, but before you leave, the Gemini and Soyuz men should know the name of their latest fotress.
(11:07:19 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (I hear Andoria sucks this time of year._
(11:07:46 PM) CdrTKirr: (I imagine it sucks year round for me. )
(11:07:46 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Oooooh...I thought name the jail. Give me a moment.)
(11:07:48 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Name the station, not the prison!)
(11:07:58 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: chuckles :: We'll be moving in.
(11:08:31 PM) CdrTKirr: ( fortress, too )
(11:09:22 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: ponders humorous names for the station :: Renzik's Folly?
(11:09:43 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +T'Kirr+ Oooh, interesting. So...nice place, isolated from the rest of the universe...
(11:09:55 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Indeed it was.
(11:10:44 PM) CdrTKirr: :: listens expectantly ::
(11:10:52 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Grins:: +T'Kirr+ Commander, would you please inform them that at their convenience, I am prepared to hand over stewardship of Shangri-La station.
(11:11:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods in approval ::
(11:11:53 PM) CdrTKirr: +McKnight+ I'll pass it on. Prepare for transport.
(11:12:09 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: So note it in the starcharts.
(11:13:04 PM) CdrHarper: :: marks this place down as Shangri-La Station ::
(11:13:22 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sends out orders to the two Akiras ::
(11:13:58 PM) CdrTKirr: :: arranges custody of the prisoners to the other teams and transports the last of their people off Shangri-La :: All crew aboard, Admiral.
(11:15:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Gemini and Soyuz form a patrol perimeter and begin transferring more security personnel to Shangri-La.
(11:15:33 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Prepare for departure.
(11:16:23 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: prepares for departure ::
(11:17:07 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Santiago> +Blackthorne+ Captain Santiago to Admiral Blackthorne, Discovery is ready to set sail for home. All aboard?
(11:17:08 PM) CdrTKirr: :: is eager to leave and come back when the station's more stable, finding the open expanse of space strangely more attractive at the moment ::
(11:17:23 PM) CdrTKirr: :: double-checks the roster and nods to Blackthorne ::
(11:18:12 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Santiago+ Yes, Captain, good to fight at your side again, and stay safe.
(11:18:48 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Discovery heads out.
(11:19:59 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Kate, set a course of the edge of the nebula, out the road we came in. Full impulse.
(11:20:13 PM) CdrHarper: Already laid in and ready, Admiral.
(11:20:21 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Execute.
(11:20:41 PM) CdrHarper: :: hits the gas ::
(11:21:39 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Star charts on the main viewer, please.
(11:22:07 PM) CdrTKirr: :: files reports from the fight and looks forward to switching to long range updates from the fleet ::
(11:22:24 PM) CdrTKirr: ( We are on our own now, yes? )
(11:22:32 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: reconfigures sensors back to base status ::
(11:22:41 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Yes, well, we're following Discovery out, but then we split)
(11:23:57 PM) CdrTKirr: :: puts up the charts ::
(11:24:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: walks up to the viewer and examines the space in the general area ::
(11:24:27 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: ::: looking deeper into unexplored space ::
(11:24:58 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks back and forth from Ian's form to the charts ::
(11:25:16 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: ::: points :: That way, once we clear the nebula.
(11:25:30 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Long range sensors start scouting when able.
(11:25:57 PM) CdrTKirr: :: amused, knowing the answer but asking anyway :: What's "that way"?
(11:26:33 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns and smiles ::: I don't know, I liked the formation of stars.
(11:26:46 PM) CdrHarper: ::: sets a course for "That way" ::
(11:26:56 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: We are, after all, explorers.
(11:26:58 PM) LtKuari: :: greets the returning marines ::
(11:28:10 PM) CdrTKirr: :: nods slowly, indulgent ::
(11:28:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Discovery clears the nebula and shoots off toward home.
(11:28:29 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Busard+ Blackthorne to Busard.
(11:28:55 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: observes stuff ::
(11:29:28 PM) CdrHarper: Nebula boundary in one minute.
(11:30:06 PM) Percy: :: Looking about expectantly:: +Blackthorne+ Busard here. We have Warp 1 and 2.
(11:30:17 PM) CdrTKirr: :: watches the fringes of the nebula fall away as the main viewer switches forward ::
(11:30:35 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Busard+ That's what I was wondering, thank you Commander.
(11:30:57 PM) CdrHarper: We're in open space and free to navigate.
(11:31:12 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Warp two, long range sensors begin sweeping for anything interesting.
(11:31:37 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: sweeping ::
(11:32:10 PM) CdrHarper: :: gently accelerates to warp two ::
(11:32:29 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: We'll go a bit faster when we're cleared.
(11:32:50 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Looks like she needs some time to get warmed up.

(11:37:29 PM) CdrTKirr: Hurray, no more stinky pirates
(11:37:35 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: And a little break from the pirate story arc. We'll be back to it.
(11:38:09 PM) LtKuari left the room.
(11:39:02 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: After all, you can't go wrong with pirates.
