(10:03:29 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya
(10:03:36 PM) LtKuari [] entered the room.
(10:03:56 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Evening, folks. I'm just finishing something up over here. I'll be in properly in...about 5 minutes, give or take.
(10:04:04 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: OK
(10:08:36 PM) DrRoxanneCarre [] entered the room.
(10:08:41 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya Doc
(10:08:50 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Heya
(10:09:01 PM) CdrTKirr: hi
(10:12:13 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Okay, right then.
(10:12:55 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: We're still going to be Percy-less, I assume?
(10:13:51 PM) CdrHarper [] entered the room.
(10:14:52 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Fraid so.
(10:15:03 PM) ColDougMcKnight: 'Fraid, even.
(10:15:26 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Alrighty then, let's get going.
(10:15:53 PM) CdrTKirr: :: TWEEEET :: Attention!
(10:16:02 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: aa ::
(10:17:57 PM) VAdmBlackthorne has changed the topic to: Preparations are underway for departure from Gencodia. All crew are being recalled along with non-permanent ground equipment, and the colonization effort is being turned over to the USS Pioneer, newly arrived on-scene with a load of scientists.
(10:18:11 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::AA::
(10:18:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Questions?
(10:18:56 PM) ColDougMcKnight: No, seems pretty straightforward.

(10:20:23 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: walks briskly from the flag office onto the bridge :: Status report on our departure readiness?
(10:22:02 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: checking inventories and offloading non-critical equipment to the surface ::
(10:22:52 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: also reassembling her lab coffee brewer ::
(10:23:27 PM) CdrHarper: :: sitting at HOps, checking all systems, eyes slightly crossed from reading English again instead of nothing but Gencodian ::
(10:23:44 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ( Actually, I DO have one question. Is it just scientists the Pioneer is dropping off, or other specialists as well? Any security personnel?)
(10:24:00 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: ( Likely a few, I'd think )
(10:24:08 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Kay.)
(10:24:11 PM) CdrTKirr: :: from center :: The last of the equipment and personnel are being beamed aboard. I estimate we'll be ready to depart within the hour.
(10:24:52 PM) CdrHarper: :: without looking up from the readouts :: Atlantis herself is ready as always, all systems are go.
(10:25:24 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: acknowledges the two reports with a contented nod as he sits :: Excellent.
(10:26:17 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: McKnight is among those last personnel, still at base camp for the moment and giving a briefing to a Lieutenant Commander Pendergast before her takes off. :: So, I forgot to congratulate you earlier. I'm pretty sure you didn't have quite as many pips when I saw you at Spacedock a couple years ago.
(10:27:35 PM) CdrTKirr: :: sits as Blackthorne does ::
(10:27:45 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Pendergast> Thank you, Colonel. Playing security guard for emptied ships wasn't exactly the most exciting job in the galaxy, but you know. Put in the hours, climbed the ladder, figured I'd reward myself by getting out here.
(10:28:42 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: looks at the Pioneer on the viewer, orbiting with them :: There are certainly a lot of archaeologists and anthropologists chomping at the bit to get a look at this place.
(10:29:30 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Nods:: Well, you'll have to stay on your toes. Rough space out here, but I think you'll enjoy the post. Anyway, as I was saying, I think your first objective should be installing a transporter platform down in the underground ruins we found. We've been pretty much all over the place, and it's ideal as an emergency shelter. Reinforced, easily defended.
(10:30:31 PM) LtKuari: :: assists in stacking a cargo container on top of another and stands, taking a moment to look out across the valley wistfully ::
(10:30:58 PM) CdrTKirr: I don't blame them.
(10:32:36 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Neither do I. :: finishes the thought :: But we'll be back.
(10:34:29 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Pendergast> It'll be done, sir. We've also got plans to expand the Echo One outpost your men established. House a manned security presence there in case of any attempted ground infiltration.
(10:35:15 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Good, good. Well, if there's nothing else, I figure I've fussed over your shoulder long enough. Shall we?
(10:35:40 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Pendergast> ::Grins:: I hereby relieve you of this post, sir.
(10:35:46 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: picks up a PADD with all the latest reports from all over the ship and skims ::
(10:35:55 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: finishes up and sends the last of the supplies down to the transporter room ::
(10:36:01 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Snaps off a salute:: I stand relieved. Godspeed, Commander.
(10:36:27 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: absently pats the chair arm in reassurance, feeling that Atlantis seems restless and bored, eager to run again ::
(10:36:51 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: sighs :: Well that was fun. :: makes a wry face, moves to the replicator :: Coffee.
(10:38:52 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: peruses the latest copy of Star Fleet Medical Fashions, amused at the variety of medical uniforms ::
(10:40:01 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Comes upon the beaming site, noting Kuari hasn't left yet either. :: Lieutenant. Everything about ready down here?
(10:40:52 PM) CdrTKirr: :: straightens :: Sir, yes sir. Just two more loads, I'd think.
(10:41:00 PM) CdrTKirr: (( LOL Kuari... ))
(10:41:14 PM) CdrHarper: :: sends off a data packet of all the translation methods she came up with over to the Pioneer ::
(10:42:47 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Nods:: Get going, then. Word is Doctor Carre's sending down one last shipment of supplies for the next group. I just need to sign it over, and I'll be along in a few minutes.
(10:44:22 PM) LtKuari: :: nods and slouches a little :: Yes, sir. See you aboard.
(10:45:50 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: throws away the magazine and 12 others that came in while she was away :: Ghaa! :: heads toward the bridge for a final look at the planet ::
(10:46:28 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: puts the PADD down, having absorbed from it everything useful, and some things not-so-useful ::
(10:46:31 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Nods::
(10:50:02 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Did you know, Commander, that there was a section of faulty grav-plating in cargo bay four last night, causing a crate of chocolate to burst open after being shot against the ceiling?
(10:50:13 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: Enters the turbo lift :: Bridge
(10:50:51 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (omg was anyone hurt? Maybe I should totally check it out! >.>)
(10:51:00 PM) CdrTKirr: :: perks eyebrow ::
(10:51:44 PM) CdrTKirr: How accurate is the report of the cause?
(10:51:46 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: enters bridge, gazes at planet ::
(10:51:57 PM) CdrTKirr: :: nods to Carre :: Doctor.
(10:52:40 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: smiles back :: Commander.
(10:52:41 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Accurate enough. :: smirks ::
(10:52:48 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Doctor, hello.
(10:53:13 PM) CdrHarper: :: turns to greet Roxy :: Doctor.
(10:53:26 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Just thought I'd get one more look at the planet, it was rather a nice place, a bit sad to be leaving.
(10:54:03 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: ponders the fate of her still with a good bit of brew left in it ::
(10:54:08 PM) LtKuari: :: is beamed aboard with a group of personnel and sighs pitifully before tucking her wings in to fit through the archway into the corridor ::
(10:54:57 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: We'll be back, doc.
(10:56:12 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Yes but the good thing about it was no people except us.
(10:56:32 PM) CdrTKirr: PioneerGuy> :: pops open cork and peeks inside :: HAY!
(10:56:35 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: smirks ::
(10:57:02 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Also, apparently no humaniod eating carnivores, always a plus in my book.
(10:57:29 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Since it was last seen in the transporter room, McKnight now inspects the medical shipment, finding it matches the manifest he got sent down. With a somewhat distracted nod to the Ensign to his left, he gives the PADD his thumb print and, as promised, beams up with the last group. ::
(10:57:53 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Definitely a good thing.
(10:58:14 PM) CdrTKirr: We were there for such a short time. It would be naive to assume there were none, especially with historical record and data hinting otherwise.
(10:58:50 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Well then, good thing we got out before they noticed us! :: grins ::
(10:58:54 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: grins :: Perhaps the doctor would care to lead the hunt on our return.
(10:59:27 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: No thanks, doesnt security do that?
(10:59:36 PM) CdrTKirr: With Kuari at her side, no doubt.
(11:00:11 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Ahh the poor dragon, shes been having a blast stretching her wings planetside.
(11:01:25 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I imagine so.
(11:02:06 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: A couple minutes later, McKnight walks back into security, and as he approaches his office, with the large sized console screen behind him and the replicator just waiting to crank out the cup of welcome back Raktajino, he can't help but smile. :: You know...good to be back.
(11:02:18 PM) CdrHarper: :: Ops beeps :: Admiral, the last of the crew has come aboard. All present and accounted for.
(11:02:46 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Make ready for departure. Anyone not going to Federation space had better get off.
(11:05:21 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Where we headed Sir?
(11:05:41 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: would enjoy a nice hot bath ::
(11:06:04 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Not Risa, if that's what you're thinking.
(11:06:19 PM) CdrTKirr: :: perk ::
(11:06:45 PM) CdrHarper: :: smiles with an unintended hint of sadness at that comment ::
(11:07:22 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I havent been there for ages. :: sighs ::

(11:14:42 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (test?)
(11:14:58 PM) CdrTKirr: (pass)
(11:15:05 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (check plz)
(11:19:18 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: You sure we cant swing by for a quick pitstop?
(11:20:17 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: You're welcome to go there. On the holodeck.
(11:20:44 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Bah!
(11:20:58 PM) CdrTKirr: All crew and equipment aboard. Ready to leave orbit, Admiral.
(11:21:21 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Kate, set a course for Starbase Vinland at warp eight.
(11:21:50 PM) CdrHarper: :: beep beep boop boop :: Course laid in and ready Admiral.
(11:23:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: does the pointy gesture at the viewscreen :: Execute.
(11:23:40 PM) CdrHarper: :: beeeeep ::
(11:25:10 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Atlantis shoots away from the much-loved moon and into the black, the ship glad to finally stretch her legs.
(11:26:33 PM) CdrTKirr: ( :( )
(11:28:01 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: watches the space go by ::
(11:28:05 PM) CdrHarper: Warp eight, all systems running normally.

(11:30:32 PM) LtKuari left the room.
(11:31:20 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Well, don't know what happened to Mike, but there we go. New plot next week!
(11:31:23 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I feel bad for Kuari
(11:31:36 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: *pats the deprived dragon*
(11:32:25 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Alrighty I'll see you guys next week! <3
(11:32:43 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Night
(11:32:48 PM) DrRoxanneCarre left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).

(11:32:51 PM) CdrTKirr: Meh.
