(9:30:29 PM) CdrTKirr: So I was all looking forward to sim and was getting a headache, so I lie down and close my eyes...
(9:30:45 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I wasn't going to bother texting you unless everyone else showed
(9:31:15 PM) CdrTKirr: Rachel texted me sayin they're running errands and running late
(9:31:23 PM) CdrTKirr: What about Carre?
(9:31:52 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: She was here and now we signed into WoW
(9:32:05 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Though if M&R show up I could pull her back in

(9:33:45 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Right...sorry for the late arrival.
(9:34:15 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: No worries, we might be able to salvage a sim from this
(9:34:24 PM) ColDougMcKnight: To put it in perspective, it's still not as bad as the REASON we got held up.
(9:34:51 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Which is?
(9:35:02 PM) LtCmdrBusard [] entered the room.
(9:35:11 PM) LtCmdrBusard: Guess how many computers we have working right now? :-D
(9:35:20 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Two? :D
(9:35:25 PM) LtCmdrBusard: WRONG
(9:36:03 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :(
(9:36:06 PM) LtCmdrBusard: Despite having supposedly good virus protection, my computer is chock full 'o viruses.
(9:36:26 PM) CdrTKirr: Doh. =/
(9:36:40 PM) LtCmdrBusard: Thus, it is getting looked over in the shop. And I'm getting new virus protection software that might actually work this time goddamnit.

(9:37:34 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Naw, hes always teasing me. :p
(9:37:38 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: She has it coming.
(9:38:08 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: *slips some stool softener in his coffee* There, things will be better soonish.
(9:38:14 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Well, glad you're here. So we don't all bleed out from our eyes or something.
(9:38:21 PM) CdrTKirr: Started using yWriter, ever heard of it?
(9:38:35 PM) ColDougMcKnight: I have not.
(9:38:44 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Negative.
(9:39:20 PM) CdrTKirr: Helps organize the creation of a storybook for writers
(9:39:52 PM) CdrTKirr: Devides it into chapters, chapters into scenes... cross references them with a list of characters, locations and items, etc
(9:40:04 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Interesting.
(9:40:31 PM) CdrTKirr:, a programmer/writer that got annoyed and made his own program
(9:41:34 PM) CdrTKirr: Bryan gets Kim Komando newsletters and it was featured a while back, giving it a try.
(9:41:36 PM) CdrTKirr: I like it.
(9:42:07 PM) CdrTKirr: Just converted four chapters into it and wrote another in it, like it so far
(9:42:27 PM) LtCmdrBusard: Yeah? Chapters of what?
(9:42:52 PM) CdrTKirr: Just a fanfic
(9:43:22 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Sweet.
(9:43:31 PM) CdrTKirr: But yeah, prolly wanting to start?

(9:45:34 PM) VAdmBlackthorne has changed the topic to: It seems that Gencodia has possibly been the target of a biological weapon. An airborne contagious virus has been detected, with everyone that's been unshielded on the surface exposed. Preliminary symptoms are headaches and blotchy skin, but it's bound to get worse....
(9:45:44 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Questions?

(9:53:23 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: maintaining professionalism with some effort ::
(9:53:41 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: After a couple moments of predictably staring at nothing satisfactory of illuminating, he tosses the PADD onto a gray plastic picnic table the scientists use for lunch outside on nice days before sitting down heavily at the same table. ::
(9:55:27 PM) CdrTKirr: +Blackthorne+ We haven't found anything yet. A dozen new cases have reported in symptoms.
(9:55:28 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: With a sigh, he takes off his useless helmet, again. He's just going to look damn stupid wearing it to have a conversation with thin air. :: Okay Doug, enough pissing around.
(9:55:41 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Percy+ McKnight to Busard.
(9:57:10 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +T'Kirr+ Understood... how are you feeling?
(9:58:49 PM) CdrTKirr: :: sighs to herself, thinking she feels the same as she did fifteen minutes ago when he last called her, but keeps it to herself :: I'm managing.
(9:58:52 PM) CdrTKirr: ++
(10:00:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +T'Kirr+ Alright. You can't blame me for being concerned.
(10:01:57 PM) CdrTKirr: +Blackthorne+ :: closes her eyes, attempting to clear her head :: No. I'm sure you feel powerless to help at all up there.
(10:02:16 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +T'Kirr+ Yes, I do.
(10:02:45 PM) LtCmdrBusard: +McKnight+ Busard here. What's going on down there?
(10:05:25 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: taps her fingers waiting for the results...ANY results to ping :: C'mon, its just some stupid dna!
(10:06:03 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Cleese> :: enters the infirmary, his skin quite blotchy now ::
(10:06:49 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Percy+ I'm sure you've heard we've got an outbreak down here...came out of nowhere, or may as well have for all we know about it so far. Whatever it is, looks like it takes its sweet time to kick your ass, which I'll take as far as silver linings go. looks like I'll have to cancel for dinner tonight.
(10:07:23 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Percy+ And...not just because of the general quarantine, either.
(10:07:25 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Cleese> Sorry to be a bother, doctor, but I thought you should know that I find myself unable to, well, move precisely. I'm starting to shake a bit too.
(10:07:41 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Cleese> :: holds out a hand, which is now shaking ::
(10:07:57 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks up from her screen at Cleese's words ::

(10:09:53 PM) LtCmdrBusard: :: Gulps heavily, taking a couple moment away from the consoles to calm herself:: +McKnight+ see. How bad is it? Are you feeling okay? ::Tries not to sound panicked, but there's a definite difference in tone::
(10:10:29 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +T'Kirr+ What's happened?
(10:12:34 PM) CdrTKirr: +Blackthorne+ It's... possible the virus is attacking the nervous system. Mayor Cleese appears to be having further symptoms.
(10:13:20 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +T'Kirr+ Uplink the new data to Dr. Carre.
(10:13:27 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Percy+ Perce, come on back. It's not freak out time just yet. So far, it's just a headache. And honestly, at least that's providing some distraction from feeling like an idiot. It's my own goddam fault. Got careless.
(10:13:52 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: DrTennant> :: notices the slight shake in his hands ::
(10:14:24 PM) CdrTKirr: +Blackthorne+ :: moves to anothe console :: She'll have it in a few minutes.

(10:15:33 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Cleese> Can't put my bloody foot where I want it sometimes.
(10:16:05 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +T'Kirr+ I'll leave you to work uninterrupted. Report back in soon.
(10:16:18 PM) CdrTKirr: :: moves to Cleese and steadies him, then performs her own scan ::
(10:16:35 PM) CdrTKirr: +Blackthorne+ I will. T'Kirr out.
(10:17:40 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: hands off the bridge to whomever is still there and heads into the flag office ::

(10:18:20 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks at the results and sighs silently as she moves swiftly to upload the data to Carre ::
(10:18:20 PM) LtCmdrBusard: +McKnight+ :: takes a deep breath:: Okay, okay....okay. What do you mean "careless"? What happened?
(10:19:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: DrTennant> I'm starting to shake too. Stiff upper lip though, right?
(10:19:23 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Blackthorne+ Carre here. Is it possible for you to come to Sickbay?
(10:19:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sits down heavily and puts his head on the desk ::
(10:19:34 PM) LtCmdrBusard: :: Takes the time to find a vaguely comfortable seat.::
(10:19:48 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: then snaps it back up again :: +Carre+ Blackthorne here, on my way.
(10:20:00 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Blackthorne+ Carre out.
(10:20:10 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Snap out of it, Ian, you have the best medical technology anywhere and she's not dead.
(10:20:21 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks up at the doctor, then moves to his side to scan him :: You've got the right idea.
(10:20:34 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: puts his command face back on and exits to the bridge, and then the TL :: Sickbay.
(10:20:54 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: DrTennant> I can keep working. Better than sitting and waiting, innit?
(10:21:53 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: starts hypothosizing serum cures :: Computer, use the three seperate dna's, with the symptomatic parameters and hypothesize a immunization or cure for those parameters.
(10:22:36 PM) CdrTKirr: Sound logic. :: looks at the results, then back at Tennant :: Time may be against us, but we can use it as well.
(10:23:14 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Computer> No immunization or cure is available for those parameters.
(10:23:20 PM) CdrTKirr: :: moves back to the console to update her transmission to Carre :: We have more data now than we did before.
(10:23:49 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Computer, hypothsize a cure only for the previous parameters.
(10:24:04 PM) CdrTKirr: (( Pfft and let the computer do all your work for you? =P ))
(10:24:28 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: DrTennant> Then let's get at it.
(10:24:33 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: arrives in sickbay ::
(10:24:35 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Yes, Doctor?
(10:24:39 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Computer> No cure is available for those parameters.
(10:25:17 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Computer, extrapolate the cures for the three parameters and come up with a solution that will cure all three, simultaneously.
(10:25:27 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Oh crap Sir.
(10:25:41 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: It takes this to get you calling me Sir?
(10:26:19 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: They took two of the worst virus out there then they added pit viper venom to assist in attacking the nervous systems.
(10:26:54 PM) CdrTKirr: (( Dun dun DUUUN... ))
(10:26:59 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Computer> There is no solution available for simultaneous cure.
(10:27:07 PM) LtCmdrBusard: +Percy+ Oh...T'Kirr asked for a head count. Apparently they were worried about some undercover pirates who...I don't know, somehow stole a suit of assault armor from lockup without us noticing. I don't know. The point is, she gave the order, I had yet to hear word one about any viral outbreak, environmental hazard detectors showed all clear, so I figured
(10:27:29 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: looks sad ::
(10:27:56 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: hears that and frowns ::
(10:28:20 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (D'oh. You know the drill.) what the hell? Helmets off. Quicker that way, easier. Verify faces at a glance instead of getting up close for a good look where some jerk could attack me easier, get back to work.
(10:28:51 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I might be able to come up with something to treat the symptoms but its going to take a while, and frankly it doesnt look all that great.
(10:29:17 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: The venom tends to increase toxicity exponentially.
(10:29:54 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Keep at it. Any resource you need is yours. So many lives are on the line here.
(10:30:13 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Percy+ So, like I said, careless. In a fucked up way, it'd ALMOST be easier to let it go if I wasn't the only one who'd made the slip up. we are. Well, here I am.
(10:30:49 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Alright. I might want to try giving the cure for each of them to a patient. I doubt it will actually work but it will give us something to go forward with.
(10:31:20 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: That's your call.
(10:32:19 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: PADDs a note to CC5TL to try one of each immunization serum on a single patient, sends replication orders. ::
(10:32:42 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Just so you know. It looks like its going to start getting real messy down there soon.
(10:32:52 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods :: How long, Roxanne?
(10:33:49 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Frowns deeply, sitting back:: +McKnight+ Okay, so, you're sick. Do you know how bad sick we're talking about? Nasty flu maybe? :: Tries to sound hopeful ::
(10:33:53 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (CRAP)
(10:33:57 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (^Percy)
(10:34:02 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: sighs :: I dont know for sure, the next 24 hours will give us a clearer picture, but it will also mean people will start dying. I'll work as fast as I can but the variables are insane.
(10:34:33 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Let me get out of your way then.
(10:34:58 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I wanted to let you know so you could disseminate the information, however you see fit.
(10:36:28 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Oh, as a bright spot, Lt. Kuari is immune.
(10:37:09 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: remembers she has a supply of dragon spit ::
(10:37:15 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: How do you know? Have you tested her?
(10:38:07 PM) CdrTKirr: ACTION> There is a commotion outside in the main encampment, men yelling and the sound of an energy weapon discharge, followed by a shuttle powering up too fast and ascending and moving off.
(10:38:16 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Hmm, shes got immunity for both virus that spread it. With out the virus getting into her system the venom cant work!
(10:38:44 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: So that makes her immune.
(10:38:58 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Manages to bite back a "Well, influenza DID kill like 20 million people back in the early 20th, so sure, let's go with that. :: Uh...worse. I don't know how MUCH worse, but there's no way this is a coincidence. This is a bioweapon...and I'm afraid those tend to be pretty nasty. Pretty sure this one's up to Carre.
(10:39:52 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Is there any way you can use that information?
(10:40:02 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I got that info from the medi-database, so I'm 99% certain she's good to go.
(10:40:29 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Looks up at the sound of fighting, and instinctively shoved his helmet back on before grabbing his rifle and double timing it. :: +Percy+ Stay on the line, but it looks like I just got busier..

(10:41:09 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I can extract some of her antigens from some 'samples' she err...gave me, and we can give those a whirl on a patient. Nothing I'm giving them will make them worse so, theres that to be thankful for.
(10:42:03 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Let me do some quick preliminaries and get back to you on if her immunity will do us any good or not.

(10:58:36 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Shipwide+ Gencodia appears to have been attacked by a bioweapon. It is a virus of some sort that has become airborne and infected everyone on the surface, including our personnel.
(10:59:12 PM) CdrHarper: :: feels the urge to add something :: +McKnight+ Feel better soon down there... I have to have someone to give air support to, you know.
(10:59:46 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Shipwide+ Along with the colonists, we have our shipmates down there. Our friends, our family, and... our loved ones.
(11:00:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Shipwide+ We have the best medical technology available and talented minds at work using it to find a way to save them.
(11:01:12 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Harper+ 'Fraid you'll have to take it up with the doc, Kate. But I assure you, I have no intention of letting this thing drop me without a fight.
(11:01:14 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Shipwide+ We WILL save them. In the meantime, talk to them if they have the time, keep them calm and reassured, and let them know we're fighting for them.
(11:01:34 PM) CdrHarper: +McKnight+ I can not imagine that you would. Here we come. Firefly out.
(11:01:46 PM) CdrHarper: :: the Sharks approach the landing pad with the shuttle ::
(11:02:02 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +Shipwide+ Blackthorne out.
(11:02:14 PM) LtKuari: Echo One Dispatcher> +Atlantis+ Echo One Outpost to Atlantis, requesting low atmospheric clearance to shuttle infected personnel to Operations.
(11:02:28 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: mutters :: Thanks boss, no pressure!
(11:02:45 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sits down, expressionless, in el seato centro ::
(11:03:22 PM) CdrHarper: :: in perfect formation with her squadmates, she eases the shuttle down to an unwilling landing ::
(11:03:34 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (two minutes!)
(11:03:42 PM) CdrTKirr: Ash> :: disengages her tractor and gets out of the way ::
(11:03:45 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: studies the picture series :: Enhance series 12.

(11:04:16 PM) CdrHarper: :: cuts the tractor and pulls up, trying to not see the faces of the people wishing they were in her fighter ::
(11:04:26 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Computer > Series 12 enhanced, magnification 50 times.
(11:05:12 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +E1D+ Granted, transmit ID so that our birds can be made aware.
(11:05:37 PM) CdrTKirr: :: After doing all she could for the moment on the computer, moves to Tennant's side :: How are you holding up?
(11:05:59 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Kuari+ Carre to Lt. Kuari, your location please.
(11:05:59 PM) CdrTKirr: (( Please someone tell me how to fix automatic overwrite in type? Dunno how I did it... ))
(11:06:15 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Press insert, in my experience.)
(11:06:21 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (( insert key ))
(11:06:29 PM) CdrTKirr: (( Oh thanks. =X ))
(11:06:59 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: DrTennant> A bit shaky, but I'm still on the job.
(11:07:05 PM) LtKuari: :: looks up, happy to hear Carre's voice :: Echo One Base, Doctor.
(11:07:08 PM) LtKuari: ++
(11:07:24 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Storming up to the shuttle, McKnight comes up on the access hatch, and brutally yanks the manual release lever. ::
(11:07:33 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Ok, three minutes more)
(11:07:59 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Kuari+ Any chance you could report to the medical complex there without jeopardizing your current duties?
(11:08:05 PM) CdrHarper: :: resumes the CAP, slightly unsettled at what just happened, but glad they got him down without hurting him ::
(11:08:18 PM) CdrHarper: +Sharks+ Good flying all.
(11:08:24 PM) CdrTKirr: :: nods, not really knowing what to say ::
(11:08:56 PM) LtKuari: +Carre+ My team can handle itself, Doctor. Do I need to check in with the Colonel?
(11:09:14 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Tennant> :: turns back to his computer console :: That's all there is for it, to work until I can't.
(11:09:17 PM) CdrTKirr: Ash> :: heads back towards her airspace ::
(11:09:34 PM) CdrTKirr: I know how you feel.
(11:09:43 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Kuari+ I'll let him know. Report to the containment team leader ASAP. You'll be giving a blood sample.
(11:10:13 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: DrTennant> My wife was set to join me in a week. Put that rather on hold, didn't I?
(11:10:26 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Cleese> She would just smack you for getting sick.
(11:10:38 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +Kuari+ Have fun Lt. Carre out.
(11:10:40 PM) LtKuari: +Carre+ :: frowns :: I'm on my way! :: jumps off the tree and takes to the air, heading for OB, and comms her unit ::
(11:11:07 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: DrTennant> :: smirks :: Yes, yes she would.
(11:11:23 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: As the shuttle comes open, McKnight instinctively surges past the entryway and turns right, sweeping toward the front of the craft as a Starfleet security man comes in behind to watch his back. :: On your feet! Now!
(11:11:52 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: +McKnight+ Carre here. I borrowed Lt. Kuari and sent her to the medical center. I need a blood sample from her asap, just letting you know.
