(21:02:24) JorvanTav: Good evening
(21:02:55) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya
(21:04:03) LtJGAlexisWright [Mibbit@w-11-876-382-46.hsd1.wa.comcast.net] entered the room.
(21:04:15) JorvanTav: Evening!
(21:04:17) CdrTKirr: Hi Wright
(21:04:21) LtJGAlexisWright: sorry I'm late... stuck in line at PetCo
(21:04:23) VAdmBlackthorne: Evening
(21:04:29) CdrTKirr: No worries
(21:04:58) JorvanTav: I am going to ask a question, but for Blackthorne's sake I am going to say keep the answer brief. How is planning going?
(21:05:13) VAdmBlackthorne: :: kills himself ::
(21:05:38) JorvanTav: The promotion T'Kirr has been waiting for...
(21:06:37) LtJGAlexisWright: "The Vulcan Widow Captain"
(21:07:58) LtCmdrBusard [Mibbit@j-88-351-725-23.hsd6.ma.comcast.net] entered the room.
(21:08:03) LtCmdrBusard: Hey all!
(21:08:08) JorvanTav: Good evening
(21:08:15) CdrTKirr: Hi Percy
(21:08:18) LtJGAlexisWright: Hihi ^_^
(21:08:36) LtCmdrBusard: How's everyone doing this evening?
(21:08:57) EnsignJohnTChance [Mibbit@50.10.ypw.ptg] entered the room.
(21:09:04) LtJGAlexisWright: hungry but otherwise fine. You?
(21:09:20) ColDougMcKnight [Mibbit@j-88-351-725-23.hsd6.ma.comcast.net] entered the room.
(21:09:23) JorvanTav: Be careful what questions you ask around here. I just read in the Starfleet Regulations that it is perfectly acceptable for an Admiral to have you drawn and quartered.
(21:10:18) LtCmdrBusard: ...But if I was drawn and quartered, none of my adorable little robots would hang around!
(21:10:20) LtCmdrBusard: :-(
(21:10:52) LtJGAlexisWright: :(
(21:11:01) VAdmBlackthorne: OK folks, Leda will be joining us later, I hope. Last minute committment that she forgot about came up.
(21:11:15) CdrTKirr: Okay.
(21:11:35) LtCmdrBusard: Well, yay for her hopefully joining us!
(21:11:50) VAdmBlackthorne: She's definitely joining the crew. Bio and everything! :D
(21:12:16) JorvanTav: Happy Leap Day everyone. Or should I call it, Happy We-Won't-Switch-To-A-Perfectly-Good-Ten-Month-Calendar-That-Would-Actually-Cover-The-Need-For-A-Leap-Year Day
(21:12:39) ColDougMcKnight: Leap Year's good.
(21:12:43) JorvanTav: Hmm. I seem to have run out of hyphens.
(21:13:59) JorvanTav is now known as DrJorvanTav
(21:14:59) CdrTKirr: Magic Kingdom is staying open from 9am earlier today to 9am tomorrow morning to celebrate heh
(21:15:26) VAdmBlackthorne: Nothing wrong with a leap day. No calendar would perfectly cover it.
(21:16:12) DrJorvanTav: That is fantastic for Maintenance. Staying open from 9:00 this morning to 20:00 (8 pm) tomorrow.
(21:17:18) DrJorvanTav: I wonder how they're going to deal with the required daily maintenance checks, including the VOBC stuff. Around 6:00 tomorrow morning all the rides will have to shut down at some point.
(21:19:14) VAdmBlackthorne: Alright, let's get this started!
(21:19:57) LtKuari: :: TWEEET :: Attention!
(21:19:59) DrJorvanTav: :: AA ::
(21:20:08) VAdmBlackthorne: :: takes the whistle away from Kuari ::

(21:20:42) CdrHarper [Mibbit@ihmo-40-564-22-286.rcmdva.fios.verizon.net] entered the room.
(21:22:50) VAdmBlackthorne has changed the topic to: It's time to act on the intel that we gained from Bartanis. We are en route to attack a major hub of Ashexana's operation. Senior staff will convene in the conference room off the bridge.
(21:23:09) VAdmBlackthorne: Questions?
(21:23:34) LtJGAlexisWright: Am I officially Chief SciOps again?
(21:23:39) VAdmBlackthorne: Yes.
(21:23:42) DrJorvanTav: I am in the middle of an experiment in Sickbay. May I be excused? :P
(21:23:45) LtJGAlexisWright: kays.
(21:23:49) VAdmBlackthorne: No.
(21:23:58) ColDougMcKnight: Yeah, but I guess they can all wait for in character.
(21:24:45) VAdmBlackthorne: ALright, let's go.

(21:25:45) CdrTKirr: :: enters the conference room, spots Blackthorne and makes her way to the chair just off to the right of his empty one ::
(21:25:52) VAdmBlackthorne: :: smiles at T'Kirr ::

(21:26:54) CdrTKirr: (( There will be cake later ))
(21:26:56) ColDougMcKnight: ::Enters, notes that he's one of the first to arrive, and scowls softly as he settles into his usual seat. :: Clock's fast.
(21:27:09) VAdmBlackthorne: Colonel.
(21:27:19) CdrHarper: :: secures the helm and enters the CR ::
(21:27:32) ColDougMcKnight: Admiral.
(21:27:42) VAdmBlackthorne: (Shepard. Wrex.)
(21:27:54) LtCmdrBusard: :: Having established that her position is substituted appropriately, Percy rises from the Engineering station and enters the Conference Room, sitting by McKnight::
(21:28:11) ColDougMcKnight: (Fine. But I'm totally Shepard!)
(21:28:13) CdrTKirr: :: having waited behind her chair as more arrived, slips into her seat and characteristically taps on the PADD in her hand, surveying it while she waits ::
(21:28:25) LtCmdrBusard: (Dibs on Garrus?)
(21:28:28) LtCmdrBusard: (:-P)
(21:28:47) LtJGAlexisWright: :: quietly observes the tactical display and the social interactions in the room ::
(21:28:56) ColDougMcKnight: (Great. Now I have to find some excuse to interrupt a Klingon mid-rant with a headbutt.)
(21:29:09) LtJGAlexisWright: (( does percy order Rubix to "go for the optics"? ))
(21:30:44) LtCmdrBusard: (You better believe it. And not always optics!)
(21:31:07) CdrHarper: :: sits down somewhere ::
(21:31:49) DrJorvanTav: :: enters the conference room, looks around and hesitates, now not sure where he is supposed to sit since he is in a different department. After a moment, he selects a seat down on the end of the conference table ::
(21:32:08) VAdmBlackthorne: Alright folks, time to act on the intelligence we worked so hard to get.
(21:32:19) VAdmBlackthorne: (Many Bothans died)
(21:32:50) CdrTKirr: :: looks up from her PADD, setting it down on the shiny surface of the table, and gives Blackthorne her stoic attention ::
(21:32:59) VAdmBlackthorne: :: gestures at the screen where a ground-based installation is projected, with many landing pads ::
(21:33:05) LtJGAlexisWright: :: focuses on the Admiral, ending her other musings and thought processes ::
(21:33:11) CdrTKirr: (They died like dogs)
(21:33:33) VAdmBlackthorne: This is one of the main hubs of Ashexana's operations. Most of her ships can apparently land, so it's planet-side.
(21:34:02) LtCmdrBusard: :: Directs all her attention to the admiral and his presentation, while subconsciously taking notes on her PADD::
(21:35:10) VAdmBlackthorne: There are anti-aircraft guns, and armored defense mechs, and I'm sure that we'll catch some ships in orbit.
(21:35:48) VAdmBlackthorne: We'll insert the Marines with the Sharks as air cover against the armor and airborne interference. Third Fleet assets will control orbital space.
(21:36:23) VAdmBlackthorne: The objective is to capture anyone or anything of value and to shut down this operation.
(21:36:31) VAdmBlackthorne: Questions?
(21:37:19) LtJGAlexisWright: :: doesn't have enough information to have questions, so hopes there will be more details ::
(21:38:45) LtCmdrBusard: Yes sir, :: Looking up from her PADD:: or rather, perhaps a suggestion?
(21:38:54) VAdmBlackthorne: Yes, Commander? :: to Busard ::
(21:40:04) LtCmdrBusard: If you approve, I'd like to send a few engineers down with the marines. If we're dealing with mechanized defenses, then my people could be useful in setting up mobile shielding and deactivating robotics as we go.
(21:40:24) LtKuari: :: romps around her quarters, which is mostly devoid of breakable objects, so long as she doesn't stray too close to her desk ::
(21:40:27) VAdmBlackthorne: Good idea. I think you'd be a fantastic addition to the ground team.
(21:40:51) LtCmdrBusard: Thank you, sir. :: Begins to check off members of Engineering to be her ground crew.::
(21:42:02) ColDougMcKnight: So you mean to beam ground forces down and assault this facility from the outside, then?
(21:42:34) VAdmBlackthorne: Unfortunately, we can not beam directly inside. There is, of course, shielding.
(21:44:38) LtJGAlexisWright: Do we know the nature of the shielding, Sir?
(21:45:11) DrJorvanTav: :: follows the conversation with his eyes, his head moving very little ::
(21:45:26) VAdmBlackthorne: Fairly standard energy shielding, similar to shipboard varieties.
(21:45:59) LtCmdrBusard: :: Grins as she cracks her knuckles:: No problem, then.
(21:46:12) VAdmBlackthorne: Once the shields are down, of course, we can flood the place.
(21:47:01) LtJGAlexisWright: No automated orbital defenses this time?
(21:47:39) VAdmBlackthorne: Nothing automated, but I expect to encounter some of her fleet.
(21:47:55) ColDougMcKnight: Is there some reason this shield won't keep out ground forces as well? Or are we looking at a "pound it until it breaks" op?
(21:49:27) VAdmBlackthorne: We should be able to exploit the doors. Security on them should be able to be broken or destroyed.
(21:50:16) VAdmBlackthorne: Or both.
(21:51:13) ColDougMcKnight: ...the doors aren't behind the shield, sir?
(21:51:42) VAdmBlackthorne: They don't drop the entire shield for people to go in and out, no.
(21:52:40) LtJGAlexisWright: Do we know what Ashexana uses this location for?
(21:54:04) VAdmBlackthorne: Storage and transfer of goods, mainly. It also seems to be a popular place for her ships' crews to mingle and get drunk.
(21:56:47) LtJGAlexisWright: So there's a possibility of more ships to approach at any time, right? We'll need perimeter defense?
(21:57:32) VAdmBlackthorne: Atlantis and the newest member of Third Fleet will cover orbit, and the Sharks will attempt to keep anyone from taking off.
(21:58:48) VAdmBlackthorne: Our guest informed us that only Ashexana'a ship has that super cloaking device we ran across.
(21:59:24) LtJGAlexisWright: :: nods and falls silent ::
(21:59:45) VAdmBlackthorne: I don't expect that she'll be there, based on certainty that Bartanis warned her.
(21:59:53) VAdmBlackthorne: But if we do get so lucky, she is to be taken alive.
(21:59:54) LtJGAlexisWright: :: quietly lusts after that cloaking device, longing to take it apart and figure out how it works ::
(22:01:03) VAdmBlackthorne: If she is there, at least this time she won't catch us with our shields down.
(22:04:44) LtCmdrBusard: (Ping)
(22:04:50) VAdmBlackthorne: (Percy IM)
(22:04:57) LtCmdrBusard: (Sorry, just wanted to make sure our network was still working. Also, thanks.)
(22:05:32) VAdmBlackthorne: :: eyes the picture, hoping that the intelligence is good ::
(22:07:32) VAdmBlackthorne: If there are no further questions...
(22:09:06) CdrTKirr: :: glances at the assembled as a whole before turning her eyes to Blackthorne ::
(22:09:57) VAdmBlackthorne: We will be meeting up with the Endeavour in twenty minutes, and arriving at the scene shortly after. Look sharp.
(22:10:02) LtJGAlexisWright: :: is quietly uncertain of what is expected of her, but does not express this aside from a small frown that could be interpreted a hundred different ways ::
(22:10:34) VAdmBlackthorne: The Endeavour, by the way, is the aforementioned newest member of Third Fleet, and only the second Prometheus class starship. Ten years of experimentation.
(22:11:06) VAdmBlackthorne: She will be quite the asset in this fight.
(22:12:54) LtKuari: :: nods slightly in agreement ::
(22:13:01) VAdmBlackthorne: (Actually that might be more than ten years, I forget what year Voyager ended in the timeline)
(22:13:01) LtKuari: (( T'Kirr ))
(22:13:38) VAdmBlackthorne: Battlestations, everyone. We have pirate ass to kick.

(22:14:37) LtJGAlexisWright: :: attempting to mask her troubled insecurity, rises and heads directly to her station with her head down and her mouth closed ::
(22:14:59) CdrHarper: :: lets out a long breath and prepares herself to fly once more ::
(22:15:09) DrJorvanTav: :: silently stands and follows Wright out the door, then breaks off for the turbolift on the opposite side of the bridge ::

(22:19:27) CdrHarper: I have the Endeavour on sensors on approach.
(22:19:31) CdrTKirr: :: sits when Blackthorne does and turns expectantly to him ::
(22:20:29) CaptFaydeHataar [Mibbit@j-88-351-725-23.hsd6.ma.comcast.net] entered the room.
(22:20:30) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods to T'Kirr ::
(22:23:27) CdrTKirr: Hail the Endeavour.
(22:24:09) CdrHarper: :: doweep :: Channel open.
(22:24:59) VAdmBlackthorne: Endeavour, Atlantis, good to see you. :: waits for the visual ::
(22:25:19) CdrHarper: :: already handshaking with the Endeavour's helm officer to outline a formation ::
(22:26:43) CaptFaydeHataar: :: Looks to the communications officer:: Onscreen. :: Captain Phayde Ha'taar, who is clearly at least in part of Klingon descent with her ridges and armored sash, rises from her chair:: Admiral Blackthorne. It is an honor to be fighting alongside you this day.
(22:28:48) LtJGAlexisWright: :: silently communicates with Endeavor's Ops officer, relaying shield harmonics and subspace communications frequencies and other things of that nature ::
(22:28:53) CdrTKirr: :: assesses Endeavour's captain curiously, having read the files not the same as meeting ::
(22:29:03) VAdmBlackthorne: Captain Ha'taar. I look forward to seeing you and the Endeavour in action. I'm sure you're eager to get your hands dirty.
(22:30:06) ColDougMcKnight: :: Settles for a subdued and silent finger wave to his opposite number over the viewscreen. ::
(22:30:52) CaptFaydeHataar: :: Grins with a certain ferocity:: Today IS a good day to die. Though perhaps a better one for our adversaries. I am anxious to show what this ship can do.
(22:32:23) VAdmBlackthorne: I'm quite looking forward to the demonstration. The ship looks good on you, Captain. Come alongside.
(22:33:53) CaptFaydeHataar: Yes, sir. :: Turns to helm:: Helm, you heard the man.
(22:34:40) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> The sleek lines of the gleaming new starship come into view as she pulls into formation.
(22:34:53) VAdmBlackthorne: I can smell the new starship scent from here.
(22:35:34) CaptFaydeHataar: :: Chuckles lightly:: It fades quickly, I'm told. Some time after the first hull breach.
(22:36:02) VAdmBlackthorne: Look sharp, Captain. We should be there in five minutes.
(22:36:25) DrJorvanTav: :: prepares Sickbay for yet another fight and the casualties that could... no, will ensue ::
(22:36:54) CaptFaydeHataar: :: Nods:: I will take the time to prepare. Endeavour out.

We'll be beaming out into the open on this one, so we'll bring our own cover. Modified shuttles. Soon as the navy folks have cleared the way, they'll be taking off.
(22:55:20) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> That lead ship was caught shieldless and is obliterated. The other ships respond quickly and begin to retaliate.
(22:55:36) VAdmBlackthorne: Syvek> :: listening ::
(22:55:45) VAdmBlackthorne: (Five minutes!)
(22:55:46) CaptFaydeHataar: ACTION> The Endeavour splits into three sections, each armed to the teeth, approaching in a cyclonic spin around each other that makes them remarkably difficult to hit.

(22:58:56) LtJGAlexisWright: :: watches the triple-threat Endeavour on her short-range sensors, manually managing power to the section shields as the retaliating ships move into position ::
(22:59:03) CdrTKirr: :: compensates for Atlantis' movements, knowing which ship she's likely to get the best lock on and longest firing time on and focuses accordingly, dealing her next attack into one of the now responding vessels ::
(22:59:12) ColDougMcKnight: Chaka> Fine! I'll be right behind you!
(22:59:23) VAdmBlackthorne: +Harper+ Launch!
(22:59:30) CdrHarper: +Sharks+ Launch!
(22:59:48) ColDougMcKnight: ^ :: Looks distinctly uncomfortable as he passes by Nugget on the way to his cockpit. :: Sorry about this, man. That's a real kick to the balls.
(22:59:50) CdrHarper: :: closes her canopy and stops yelling ::
(22:59:50) LtJGAlexisWright: :: watches the fighters enter the fray on said short-range sensors ::
(23:00:04) CdrHarper: Nugget> I know. :: slinks back into the locker room :: :(
(23:00:09) CaptFaydeHataar: Sid> :::ZZZZOOOOM!!!::
(23:00:10) CdrTKirr: Ash> :: guns it out of the bay and starts shooting ::
(23:00:37) CdrHarper: :: shoots out of the bay and dives toward the surface :: +Sharks+ Our primary targets are the AA guns and armor.

(23:01:09) DrJorvanTav: :: pauses ::
(23:01:10) CdrTKirr: :: pauses ::

(23:01:33) LtCmdrBusard: :: Pauses::
(23:01:35) ColDougMcKnight: :: paused ::
(23:01:39) CdrTKirr: LOVE the pause button, Wright. =P
(23:01:54) VAdmBlackthorne: Needs the Mario diku diku noise.
(23:02:06) DrJorvanTav: So let's get this straight. Poor Nugget gets kicked out of his plane, while the Mescalero is going to sit in the Bay collecting space dust since Tav is stuck in Sickbay. You know, when Nugget goes back in and sees the Mescalero there, he's gonna be pissed
(23:02:21) LtJGAlexisWright: I've been doing that at the pause point of every sim I've ever taken part in, y'know.
(23:02:31) VAdmBlackthorne: That's easily explained, Tav.
(23:02:55) VAdmBlackthorne: I forgot about your plane, and Nugget will likely never be seen again anyway.
(23:03:09) CdrTKirr: Hahaha
(23:03:15) DrJorvanTav: Oh, so what you're saying is that the Mescalero is MINE. Okay.
(23:03:27) VAdmBlackthorne: Nugget> I'm an extra! :downs:
(23:03:35) LtJGAlexisWright: Alas, poor Nugget, we knew him w.... oh, wait.
(23:03:45) DrJorvanTav: No, we didn't.
(23:03:56) VAdmBlackthorne: Of course he could be like one of those BSG pilots you saw once who kept coming back and then developed into a major character.
(23:04:18) DrJorvanTav: But we never actually find out Nugget's real name
(23:04:23) VAdmBlackthorne: Right.
(23:04:42) DrJorvanTav: Kinda like Morn for the first several seasons.
(23:05:47) LtJGAlexisWright: Okay, I need to go make black cat stop attacking white cat.
(23:05:52) VAdmBlackthorne: Nice start to the fight though ,it
(23:05:59) VAdmBlackthorne: Next week'll definitely be exciting.
(23:06:21) DrJorvanTav: I think Liz and I heard your cats earlier this evening.
(23:07:20) LtJGAlexisWright: White cat was all like :: strech, purrrrr :: and black cat was all like :: POUNCE POUNCE BEEYOTCH ::
(23:07:31) CdrTKirr: LOL
(23:07:57) DrJorvanTav: Bitch Cat. Sounds like a new rock and roll band.
(23:09:01) LtJGAlexisWright: It's just that black cat is only 3 and white cat will be 12 this summer. She has way more energy than he does.
(23:09:46) LtJGAlexisWright: So I'mma go get some of her toys and wear her ass out.
(23:10:06) LtJGAlexisWright: Very exciting start! <3 Looking forward to next week already ^_^
(23:10:15) VAdmBlackthorne: See you then. :)
