(10:01:41 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: youre such a nagger too
(10:01:56 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: TWO MORE DAYS!
(10:02:10 PM) CdrTKirr [] entered the room.
(10:02:10 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Then i'm off until next year.
(10:02:23 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Too bad I'm doing all next weeks work this week.

(10:03:26 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya T'Kirr
(10:03:34 PM) CdrTKirr: Hiya
(10:03:54 PM) LtKuari: Apologies for the tardiness... I was being pet. ^_^
(10:05:21 PM) Percy: And there's one thing I didn't want to know about Kuari :-P
(10:06:13 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: >.>
(10:07:37 PM) CdrTKirr: Um what
(10:08:11 PM) Percy: Sorry hun, you left an opening for a dirty joke. Had to go with it.
(10:08:34 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: The ruling on the field is confirmed, dirty joke stands.
(10:08:35 PM) CdrTKirr: Well Kuari wouldn'
(10:08:41 PM) CdrTKirr: t know what to do with one of those, would she?
(10:08:59 PM) LtKuari: o.0
(10:09:44 PM) Percy: Eh, we know very little about male Rukara biology, so...:-P
(10:10:03 PM) CdrTKirr: Some of us... heh
(10:10:24 PM) ColDougMcKnight [] entered the room.
(10:10:36 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Hey, sorry for the lateness.)
(10:10:46 PM) Percy: Lol, true.
(10:10:48 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya Mike
(10:11:15 PM) CdrTKirr: Anyway. Only professionalism going on here. Nothing to see.
(10:11:42 PM) LtKuari: :: purrs ::
(10:11:50 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Riiiiight
(10:11:58 PM) Percy: Lmao
(10:12:14 PM) CdrHarper [] entered the room.
(10:12:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Alrighty then, let's get going.
(10:12:39 PM) CdrTKirr: Ahem.. :: TWEET ::
(10:12:42 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Wright will be late, Ive been informed.
(10:12:42 PM) CdrTKirr: Attention!

(10:14:22 PM) VAdmBlackthorne has changed the topic to: The mission brief is essentially summed up in the journal entry I wrote on the website! Go forth and read if you haven't!
(10:15:35 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Questions?
(10:15:55 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Nope.
(10:16:43 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(10:16:46 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(10:16:47 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(10:17:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: heading back into the operations base to check in on the construction ::
(10:17:29 PM) Percy: (Finishing a highlight quick. I'll jump in as soon as it's done.)
(10:18:04 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (woooooot!)
(10:19:05 PM) CdrTKirr: :: is overseeing construction of said operations base, so will probably be run into there ::
(10:19:31 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: notices someone constructing a still behind a building, overlooks it ::
(10:19:31 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (I'm sorry I didn't get a chance earlier, but look for one from me as well in the next little as well. Probably not mid-sim, though. I've realized this is actually a perfect opportunity to actually USE my engineering NPC.)
(10:19:31 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: checking data to make sure all satellite teams are up and functional, looking for bio markers in samples ::
(10:19:56 PM) LtKuari: :: explores ::
(10:20:09 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (hahaha)
(10:20:36 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: will, however, come back and inspect said still for quality later ::
(10:20:47 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Oh, did Carre and her people ever conclude yea or nay on the actual presence of any sort of pathogens we'd need to worry about?)
(10:22:44 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: enters the center of the base and finds T'Kirr overseeing :: Looks like it's coming along nicely!
(10:23:19 PM) CdrTKirr: :: turns, seemingly not surprised by Blackthorne's approach :: Indeed.
(10:23:47 PM) Percy: (Alright, posted, and in I go!)
(10:25:13 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (we havent found anything outside yet, inside is still being analyzed, at this point not too likely)
(10:25:53 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Nice one!)
(10:25:58 PM) CdrTKirr: (Cute, hehe)
(10:26:00 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Kay. Quarantine still in effect for now, then.)
(10:26:09 PM) Percy: (Thanks :-))
(10:27:22 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Ready to move in, or are you staying on the ship tonight? :: chuckles ::
(10:29:17 PM) CdrTKirr: :: turns calmly back to watching :: I estimate we'll be ready to accommodate approximately seventy percent of our current planetside population by nightfall.
(10:29:46 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Back underground, McKnight figures he's made a slight contribution to their understanding of how this alien technology works, and more importantly helped the two of them get DOWN from there. ::
(10:30:31 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Not bad for a day's work.
(10:31:04 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Turns out the key was "STOP touching it!" While a very slight hum remains, the equipment starts to power down once theres no longer a physical circuit between the button-less console and the operator. That includes the hovering lift. ::
(10:31:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (quit pickin' at it!)
(10:33:46 PM) Percy: :: Drums her fingers together in a vaguely mad-scientist way:: Ooo, that's...that's AWESOME. The machinery must work off some kind of...circuit of some sort that the body completes!
(10:34:03 PM) CdrTKirr: Agreed. :: knits her brow slightly :: I find it actually quite fascinating the difference in efficiency exhibited by the crew. They seem... determined.
(10:34:15 PM) Percy: Or...maybe it works off of body heat. Or maybe we give off some kind of energy it stores. Oh, the options!
(10:34:46 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: There's something about this place. Perhaps the beauty of it?
(10:35:20 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks away from the camp to the distant side of the valley :: Perhaps...
(10:35:26 PM) CdrTKirr: It is pleasing.
(10:36:09 PM) ColDougMcKnight left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).
(10:37:06 PM) ColDougMcKnight [] entered the room.
(10:37:08 PM) LtKuari: :: continues to stand crouched and alert at the edge of the platform, giving their words one ear ::
(10:37:29 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Sorry. I was just informed I'd left the room.)
(10:38:00 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (You're back!)
(10:39:33 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Even so, I think I'll spend tonight on the ship, there's something to be said for your own bed. I admit it's tempting to stay.
(10:41:21 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: smiles as the preliminary data analysis completes ::
(10:41:32 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Blackthorne+ Carre to Blackthorne
(10:41:52 PM) CdrTKirr: :: nods in acceptance ::
(10:42:00 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Carre+ Blackthorne here.
(10:42:21 PM) Percy: (Mike's compy is giving us issues. I think he just disconnected again)
(10:42:56 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Testing...sorry. the chat is seriously not working with me tonight.)
(10:43:08 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Blackthorne+ The preliminary data for the outside atmosphere is complete. Nothing harmful found. We should have the data for inside in an hour or so. We've found nothing there yet, so it looks promising.
(10:43:19 PM) Percy: (Yay, it worked!)
(10:44:08 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Carre+ Acknowledged, doctor. I'm sure you'll all be glad to get out of those suits!
(10:44:48 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: The only odd thing we found were power oddities which I dont see as harmful. I'll let you know once we get the final results.
(10:45:01 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Blackthorne+*
(10:45:09 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Blackthorne+ Carre out.
(10:46:40 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Steps off the platform as it gently touches back down on the smooth floor. :: Right, well I'm posting a guard until you and yours can narrow the list down a little. I understand the temptation is awful, firsthand even, but I don't want anyone playing with this thing in the meantime.
(10:47:35 PM) LtKuari: :: leaps off, staying watchful ::
(10:47:57 PM) Percy: Awww! But....but...
(10:48:01 PM) Percy: :: POUTY FACE::
(10:49:28 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I'd rather like to see that computer.
(10:49:57 PM) CdrTKirr: I trust Commander Busard will do a thorough study of it.
(10:51:43 PM) ColDougMcKnight left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).
(10:51:47 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Oh, no doubt. I'm just curious to see for myself.
(10:52:12 PM) Percy: (Okay, Mike has to give up on Sim tonight. The computer is just not working. But he says he'll make it up by finishing that highlight.)
(10:52:29 PM) CdrTKirr: (What a shame!)
(10:52:40 PM) Percy: (I know, right! Toopid computer)
(10:54:07 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: ( :( )
(10:54:26 PM) CdrTKirr: (Delete McAfee. Worked for me.)
(10:55:02 PM) Percy: (His computer never had McAfee on it.)
(10:55:30 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Damn good thing)
(10:58:55 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Something that old that still works, it'd just be a marvel to look at.
(10:59:23 PM) Percy: Puddington> :: Noms a delicious sandwich in camp. He's still not quite sure what he's doing down there::
(11:03:11 PM) LtJGAlexisWright [] entered the room.
(11:03:24 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Hiya Wright)
(11:03:42 PM) LtKuari: (Welcome)
(11:03:55 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Though I think you arrived at a bad time - Mike had to leave due to computer issues and it kinda derailed the sim)
(11:04:31 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: (Hi, sowry, had to work late... I can leave again, if you want! I'm trying to type and eat dinner at the same time anyway.)
(11:04:40 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: frowns at the results from inside the ruins ::
(11:05:11 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: looks at her techs :: You cant get anything more conclusive than this?
(11:05:30 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: shakes her head ::
(11:06:46 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Blackthorne+ Carre to Blackthorne.
(11:07:33 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Carre+ Blackthorne here.
(11:07:47 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Blackthorne+ Nothing comes up on our scans. We found minimal bio-material but until they are cloned and analysis is complete I cant tell you much more than that.
(11:08:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Carre+ Well, you could always take off your helmet and see if you get sick?
(11:08:48 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Blackthorne+ However, while it looks clear for the majority of the crew, we dont have enough data on Rucaran biology to know if it is safe for Kuari. We'll keep working on it.
(11:09:54 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Carre+ Alright, your call when to give it a shot.
(11:10:05 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Blackthorne+ I'm confident enough that if you're not Rucaran, you'll be just fine.
(11:10:23 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Carre+ Then give the all clear to everyone but Lt. Kuari.
(11:10:50 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Blackthorne+ Aye, will do. Carre out.
(11:11:24 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: sends out notification to all personnel that if they arent Rucaran bio-protocols are not needed.
(11:11:35 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (sorry Kuari :( )
(11:12:32 PM) LtKuari: :: gets the message :: Meh.
(11:14:59 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(11:15:00 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(11:15:03 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(11:15:15 PM) CdrTKirr: :: pauses ::
(11:15:24 PM) Percy: :: Le paused::
(11:15:31 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: paused ::
(11:15:46 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Losing Mike derailed us, as the underground plot was mostly his.
(11:15:52 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (pawsed?)
(11:15:57 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: So I figured it better to pause than to limp!
(11:16:18 PM) CdrTKirr: It's okay. We can flesh out our parts in little logs. =)
(11:16:25 PM) Percy: Which is AWESOME.
(11:16:35 PM) CdrTKirr: Hm?
(11:16:58 PM) LtKuari: :: looks for something to glomp ::
(11:17:16 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: tosses Kuari a huge hunk of chocolate ::
(11:17:31 PM) LtKuari: :: ! ::
(11:17:41 PM) Percy: ...
(11:17:47 PM) CdrTKirr: Heh... I've had so much cocoa tonight o.0
(11:17:57 PM) Percy: :: pretends to be Rucaran::
(11:18:17 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: tosses Percy and Alex chocolate too ::
(11:18:20 PM) Percy: Man, i wish I wasn't sick. Chocolate tastes so much better when you can actually taste things.
(11:18:20 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: I actually started writing a log which involved Lexy being down at the science site after the end of the last session, is there anything that happened that would make that wrong? I'd like to present it. :: skims through mission brief ::
(11:18:23 PM) Percy: Yay!
(11:18:48 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Chocolate! Wai wai!! :: frolic ::
(11:19:03 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Nope, you should be good, Wright
(11:19:19 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: tosses a teeny piece to Blackthorne ::
(11:19:38 PM) CdrTKirr: The google doc is up to date, so if there's nothing in there conflicting, go ahead. =)
(11:19:40 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :(
(11:19:49 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: eats his teeny piece of chocolate ::
(11:19:53 PM) CdrTKirr: The science site is yours
(11:19:58 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: *pat pat* Men dont have a biological NEED for chocolate!
(11:20:14 PM) CdrTKirr: The ruins is McKnight's, the pillar is Harper's, and the operations base is mine, I suppose.
(11:20:54 PM) CdrTKirr: I told Bryan just tonight that chocolate and peanut butter is God's second best gift to woman.
(11:20:57 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I gotta run, work is bugging me. *mutters about end-of-year crap*
(11:20:57 PM) CdrHarper: Where's mine then?
(11:21:02 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Night guys!
(11:21:16 PM) CdrTKirr: Night Roxy, see you next week!
(11:21:23 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Pfft you help yourself all the time!
(11:21:29 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :D
(11:21:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Night Rx
(11:21:34 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Rox
(11:21:37 PM) Percy: G'night!
(11:21:50 PM) LtKuari: Sorry, Doctor. I don't keep chocolate in my croup.
(11:21:59 PM) LtKuari: It always goes straight to my stomach.
(11:22:03 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: I guess I will go have foods and try to destress after work. <3
(11:22:05 PM) LtKuari: :: shrugs :: Can't help it.
(11:22:12 PM) DrRoxanneCarre left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).
(11:22:29 PM) CdrTKirr: Who wants chocolate with Rucara spit on it anyway?
(11:22:43 PM) LtKuari: =(
(11:22:52 PM) Percy: Baby Rucarans?
(11:23:17 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Good point.
(11:23:27 PM) CdrTKirr: Okay I'm talking to myself. And that's a good point. Although you're probably not supposed to give younglings chocolate.
(11:24:05 PM) LtKuari: Whelps. They're called whelps. >_>
(11:24:22 PM) CdrTKirr: Anyway. I got training in the morning. Going to maximize on my sleep!
(11:24:27 PM) Percy: Heehee, whelps.
(11:24:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Night, T'Kirr
(11:24:38 PM) Percy: Good night T'Kirr!
(11:24:58 PM) CdrTKirr: Night. ^_^ Cool highlight!
(11:25:43 PM) LtKuari left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).
(11:26:13 PM) CdrTKirr left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).
(11:27:26 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Night y'all
(11:29:48 PM) LtJGAlexisWright left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).
