Conversation with #ussatlantis at Wed Aug 22 20:59:28 2012 on (irc)

(20:59:28) The topic for #USSAtlantis is: Atlantis is in orbit over a planet long-range sensors' distance from Gencodia, a planet clearly once supporting life that is now lifeless. T'Kirr leads an away team into what once appears to have been an inhabited primitive small town, along with Wright, McKnight, Harper, and Syvek.

(20:59:39) LtCmdrPercy: Hey, Jason.
(20:59:48) mode (+o CdrTKirr) by VAdmBlackthorne
(20:59:52) VAdmBlackthorne: Rachel!!
(21:00:06) VAdmBlackthorne: Glad to see you!
(21:00:15) LtCmdrPercy: You too!
(21:01:00) CdrTKirr: Something wrong with the log?
(21:01:23) EnsUrist: oh yay I can terrorize percy this week
(21:01:41) ColDougMcKnight [] entered the room.
(21:02:17) LtCmdrPercy: The first paragraph is godmoding McKnight's personality.
(21:02:26) LtCmdrPercy: Which was not passed by Mike.
(21:02:27) DoctorTav [] entered the room.
(21:02:30) LtJGAlexisWright [] entered the room.
(21:02:42) DoctorTav: Good evening all
(21:02:48) LtJGAlexisWright: Hihi everyone
(21:02:54) VAdmBlackthorne: Hi all
(21:03:06) LtCmdrPercy: Hi dude.
(21:03:10) ColDougMcKnight: Hey.
(21:03:13) DoctorTav: Percy! Welcome back!
(21:03:19) LtCmdrPercy: Thanks!
(21:03:43) LtJGAlexisWright: Seconded! Urist will be pleased.
(21:03:44) LtCmdrPercy: So, I know this is super awkward, but do you think you could edit the first paragraph in your log so that there aren't claims that McKnight made racist statements?
(21:03:56) LtCmdrPercy: It's just...a little off-color, and Mike didn't okay it.
(21:04:21) VAdmBlackthorne: Yeah, that sort of thing really should be okayed by a character's player.
(21:04:24) DoctorTav: Okay. I was thinking of him going under anesthesia, and people say weird things that they normally never would. But I am happy to.
(21:05:11) ColDougMcKnight: Yeah...I realize that I'm not easy to rezch during the week, but I would appreciate something like that being run by me in the future.
(21:05:16) ColDougMcKnight: *reach
(21:05:30) DoctorTav: Dun
(21:05:33) DoctorTav: You got it
(21:05:47) DoctorTav: I am sorry for creating an awkward moment
(21:06:15) ColDougMcKnight: Thanks. And don't worry about it. Just...something to keep in mind, is all.
(21:06:38) VAdmBlackthorne: Alright then, looks like that's squared away.
(21:07:27) LtCmdrPercy: Sweet! Thanks Tav. Sorry for the awkwardness.
(21:07:53) DoctorTav: Wasn't awkward for me. I really didn't realize. I like to think I take correction well.
(21:08:12) LtCmdrPercy: That is a very good skill to have, and I have not met enough people with it :-P
(21:08:33) CdrTKirr: That's because Tav's always wrong. He's used to it.
(21:08:36) LtJGAlexisWright: I take it really badly, because I'd be all like "I'm so sorry omgomgomg" and falling on swords and shit.
(21:08:38) CdrTKirr: *ducks*
(21:08:39) LtCmdrPercy: lmao
(21:08:41) DoctorTav: As strange as it will sound, I appreciate you feeling awkward about asking me.
(21:09:00) DoctorTav: But you don't have to
(21:09:05) EnsUrist: brb
(21:09:05) LtCmdrPercy: So noted :-P
(21:09:23) CdrHarper [] entered the room.
(21:09:32) VAdmBlackthorne: Great, seems like no harm, no foul then. :)
(21:09:37) EnsUrist: back
(21:09:56) DoctorTav: Wow, this ship is getting really full with a full complement back here. All we need is a redheaded doctor and we will be packed to the gills
(21:10:03) LtCmdrPercy: Hooray!
(21:11:12) DoctorTav: :: throws something at T'Kirr's head now that she's not expecting it ::
(21:11:25) EnsUrist: Percy: while you were out, they started installing a slipstream drive, urist made a fuss that the designers failed to notice that this isn't a biogel ship like Voyager, made some dubious and ugly changes to the design, and it now looks like there is a huge bronze octopus all over the warp core. He is also astonished that things did not explode.
(21:11:36) EnsUrist: you may punish as necessary
(21:11:50) LtCmdrPercy: Lmao. Oh I will
(21:12:03) LtCmdrPercy: WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO MY WARP CORE :-(
(21:12:16) EnsUrist: MA'AM
(21:12:19) EnsUrist: oh wait we haven't started yet
(21:12:21) VAdmBlackthorne: :toot:
(21:12:27) LtCmdrPercy: lmao
(21:12:45) DoctorTav: :: AA, and realizes that that was just gas ::
(21:12:47) CdrTKirr: :: gets smacked in the head :: Ow!
(21:13:03) VAdmBlackthorne: :: brings out the Ancient Whistle of Ear Piercing +5 :: TWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET! :toot:
(21:13:12) LtJGAlexisWright: :: manages to look more confused than usual ::

(21:14:01) LtCmdrPercy: ::AA::
(21:15:14) CdrTKirr has changed the topic to: After following readings of a unique particle on long-range scans further into unexplored space, Atlantis approaches another planet. Time has passed, injuries have had time to heal, and science has been done.
(21:15:40) CdrTKirr: Questions?
(21:15:43) VAdmBlackthorne: :science:!
(21:15:45) DoctorTav: Are the people still alive?
(21:16:09) CdrTKirr: And feeling fantastic, yes.
(21:16:25) LtCmdrPercy: Lol
(21:16:29) LtJGAlexisWright: But there's still science to do, right?
(21:16:36) CdrTKirr: Unless you're talking about the lizardmen ghosts on the planet. =X
(21:16:38) LtJGAlexisWright: :: anxious ::

(21:19:26) DoctorTav: :: walks into Sickbay, for the first time knowing that any injuries or illnesses that await his arrival are the run-of-the-mill stuff from day-to-day operation of a starship. He still can't get past what could possibly burn through flesh, but not non-organic compounds or bone ::
(21:19:32) CdrTKirr: :: on the Bridge, wandering calmly to Science, catching Wright's attention ::
(21:21:00) ColDougMcKnight: (Okay, so would McKnight still be in sickbay, or released but forcibly off duty?)
(21:21:36) DoctorTav: ((I say by now, light duty is okay ))
(21:22:05) LtCmdrPercy: ( For the purposes of drama, can he be in sick bay just a LEETLE longer?)
(21:22:20) LtJGAlexisWright: :: looks up at T'Kirr :: Hello, Commander.
(21:22:29) CdrTKirr: Lieutenant, would you work with Tav and McKnight? Now that we've had time to study our findings from the last planet, I'd like to see if we can find a way to make our weapons work against them, or at least develop a defense.
(21:22:34) VAdmBlackthorne: (LOL, "please, keep him")
(21:22:54) DoctorTav: (( MAGIC EDIT: McKnight is STILL in Sickbay. Recovering. Under supervision, long after he *could* have gone home. I just want him around. ))
(21:23:00) LtJGAlexisWright: (( Sorry, I was putting food in a bowl because it's dinnertime out here.))
(21:23:22) LtJGAlexisWright: Aye, Commander. Shall I report to Sickbay, or..
(21:23:34) LtCmdrPercy: (Sweet)
(21:23:55) LtCmdrPercy: :: Has rushed from her plot hole coma into Sick Bay, and is fidgetting at the side of McKnight's bed::
(21:24:03) DoctorTav: ( Understand that I am probably keeping him knocked out for my own sanity )
(21:24:25) CdrTKirr: It's up to you, wherever you would like to work.
(21:24:39) CdrHarper: :: studying the particle with some fascination ::
(21:25:12) LtJGAlexisWright: Yes, ma'am. +Tav+ Wright to Tav.
(21:25:28) DoctorTav: +Wright+ Go ahead.
(21:26:25) Rubix [] entered the room.
(21:26:42) LtKuari [] entered the room.
(21:27:20) LtJGAlexisWright: +Tav+ I'd like to meet up with you and McKnight to go over all the lab reports and findings from the beings that we encountered. Would it be best for me to come to Sickbay? Or is the Colonel mobile? There's two of you and one of me, so I'll come meet you at the location of your choice.
(21:27:43) Rubix: :: Crawls out of Percy's pocket and starts poking McKnight in the shoulder::
(21:28:02) VAdmBlackthorne: (We have also been Rubix/Cubit-less for too long!)
(21:28:16) LtJGAlexisWright: (hear, hear!)
(21:28:23) LtCmdrPercy: (D'aww)
(21:28:53) DoctorTav: :: looks at McKnight across Sickbay before responding :: +Wright+ How does Ten Forward with a good stiff drink sound?
(21:29:09) CdrTKirr: (( Really missed you. ))
(21:29:18) LtCmdrPercy: (Missed you guys too)
(21:30:26) LtJGAlexisWright: :: grinning :: +Tav+ Sounds like it's too bad I'm on duty. But I'll be happy to meet you there in, say, 5 minutes? Bring PADDs with you.
(21:30:30) VAdmBlackthorne: :: finishes the report and sends it away ::
(21:31:39) DoctorTav: +Wright+ Sorry, had to get that out. Come to Sickbay, I think it'll work best.
(21:31:49) LtCmdrPercy: :: Squeezes McKnight's good hand lightly:: Damnit, you just did this so I you could avoid me putting the ring on your finger, aren't you?
(21:32:07) LtJGAlexisWright: +Tav+ Aw, you're no fun. On my way.
(21:35:19) LtJGAlexisWright: :: yields her console to one of her most trusted Science monkeys with a few instructions, and gives Harper and T'Kirr a direct patch into the raw scan data - they both have more than enough background in science to interpret it ::
(21:35:46) CdrHarper: :: looks at the data with interest ::
(21:35:47) CdrTKirr: :: stands staring at the Science panel, hands clasped behind her, deep in thought as Wright moves away ::
(21:36:14) DoctorTav: :: hits his comm badge and walks over to McKnight's bedside. There is no warmth in his conversation with the Colonel :: How is your arm feeling?
(21:36:35) CdrTKirr: :: blinks, then angles her head towards Helm :: Commander Harper, what is our time to arrival?
(21:36:59) ColDougMcKnight: (I thought I was supposed to be sedated.)
(21:37:04) CdrHarper: :: recalculates :: Approximately thirty minutes, ma'am.
(21:37:34) DoctorTav: (Sorry. Let me fix that. I am batting 1000 tonight)
(21:37:56) DoctorTav: :: jams a hypospray to McKnight's throat and sets it off ::
(21:38:04) LtJGAlexisWright: :: excuses herself from the bridge and hops into the TL :: Deck 15. :: takes a last look at the main viewer as the TL doors swish shut ::
(21:38:24) CdrTKirr: Thank you. :: lowers her eyes down to Science again, reading over the panel's display ::
(21:39:21) DoctorTav: :: looks up at McKnight's biobed's readouts, waiting ::
(21:39:42) DoctorTav: :: mumbles to himself :: Three...
(21:39:47) DoctorTav: Two...
(21:39:52) DoctorTav: One...
(21:39:55) DoctorTav: And...
(21:40:27) CdrTKirr: :: after a few moments, decides to direct her thoughts elsewhere for a while, and moves down to the center of the Bridge :: +Urist+ Bridge to Engineering.
(21:40:53) ColDougMcKnight: :: Gradually awakes with a groan, eyes opening and shutting a few times. It's several seconds of staring in confusion at the ceiling before his features finally settle into a frown as he realizes he's still stuck in this mismanaged hole. :: Ah. Right.
(21:40:58) VAdmBlackthorne: :: checks up on the progress of the Discovery's slipstream drive installation, which was a few weeks behind theirs ::
(21:41:24) DoctorTav: :: looks down at McKnight :: How are you feeling, Colonel?
(21:42:53) DoctorTav: :: prepares a hypospray with some pain killers and injects McKnight ::
(21:43:24) ColDougMcKnight: Ugh. Ask me again once that stuff takes effect. How long was I out?
(21:43:57) VAdmBlackthorne: :: finds that Discovery also had issues with drive integration with an isolinear system ::
(21:44:09) EnsUrist: (( VINDICATION ))
(21:44:43) CdrTKirr: +Urist+ Bridge to Engineering.
(21:44:47) ColDougMcKnight: (If it makes you feel better, McKnight also has reservations about this thing, albeit for totally different reasons.)
(21:44:50) DoctorTav: I needed to keep you sedated since the surgery for your muscle to take hold of the prosthetic I had to put in there. Move your fingers.
(21:45:13) LtJGAlexisWright: :: enters Sickbay, pausing for a moment to locate Tav and McKnight, then approaches - hanging back while Tav does Doctor-y stuff ::
(21:45:14) EnsUrist: +T'Kirr+ Engineering to bridge.
(21:45:14) DoctorTav: :: turns his gaze to McKnight's hand ::
(21:45:44) LtCmdrPercy: Prosthetic? :: Looks for the machinery somewhat more excitedly::
(21:45:51) ColDougMcKnight: :: Does so. :: Okay. So how long was that?
(21:46:03) ColDougMcKnight: Perce?
(21:46:38) CdrTKirr: +Urist+ :: frowns :: Ensign Urist? Report on the status of the slipstream drive, please.
(21:47:16) DoctorTav: :: It's been about twelve hours. :: looks at Percy :: Don't worry. Prosthetic means a lot more than an artificial limb. I had to replace some of the muscle in his arm. His muscle will actually grow back in the next few weeks. But :: switches between looking at both of them :: you actually have full use of your arm now. Just know that it'll hurt. A lot.
(21:47:42) LtCmdrPercy: ...Darn. So I can't add a rocket launcher while you're asleep.
(21:47:49) LtCmdrPercy: :: Frowns disappointedly::
(21:48:15) ColDougMcKnight: Give me a day and a scotch, and I promise I'll find that hilarious.
(21:48:16) EnsUrist: ::Stares at the big thing that everyone knows nothing about.:: +T'Kirr+ It's still there, there's no smoke coming out of it, and lights are green. Say, have you seen our chief engineer?
(21:49:31) LtCmdrPercy: :: Shifty eyes:: Yeah,'s funny...because it was totally a joke. But we'll work on the scotch.
(21:50:15) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sends off a curiousity-tinged message to Cpt Santiago asking about how his engineers dealt with the biogel/isolinear problem ::
(21:50:27) DoctorTav: :: looks to Percy :: You know, if you want a place to attach stuff... just let me know.
(21:50:40) CdrTKirr: +Urist+ :: frowns deeper :: Thank you for the update. Last I am aware, Commander Busard is in Sickbay. Are you having a problem communicating with her?
(21:51:13) LtJGAlexisWright: (( brb, I desperately need to reboot this machine so it lets me do things more than once every 15 seconds. ))
(21:51:19) LtJGAlexisWright left the room (quit: Quit: ajax IRC Client).
(21:51:52) LtCmdrPercy: Yeah...but he'd probably just rip it out and come back here.
(21:52:25) VAdmBlackthorne: (Now I'm picturing McKnight with a kitchen mixer attachment on his arm)
(21:52:40) DoctorTav: :: turns back to McKnight :: I had to wake you a couple hours early, because we need to work with Science and figure out what kind of dog bit you. Or was it a rabbit? Anyway, Lieutenant Wright is coming and I want you awake for the work we need to do.
(21:52:45) LtCmdrPercy: (No no. Chainsaw)
(21:52:49) VAdmBlackthorne: (
(21:52:56) VAdmBlackthorne: (Hail to the king, baby.)
(21:53:28) EnsUrist: +T'Kirr+ During the test flight she was no where to be seen, ma'am. I presumed she was on the bridge, and tell her I appreciate the vote of confidence with leaving me in charge. Engineering out.
(21:53:49) LtCmdrPercy: (Damn right)
(21:54:49) ColDougMcKnight: :: Grimaces and pushes himself up. :: Am I to consider myself released to my duties, then?
(21:55:10) DoctorTav: Light duty for the next twenty-four hours. After that you should be good to go.
(21:55:47) CdrTKirr: :: raises an eyebrow, attempting not to let past misgivings with Tellarites get to her, and sighs deeply before taking her seat and scanning over the data Wright sent to her ::
(21:56:25) DoctorTav: I will need to see you in here... :: winces slightly :: every 48 hours to check on the growth of your muscle.
(21:56:50) VAdmBlackthorne: :: exits the RR onto the bridge:: Status?
(21:57:30) LtJGAlexisWright [] entered the room.
(21:57:48) VAdmBlackthorne: (WB)
(21:57:58) LtJGAlexisWright: (( Sorry, there was a lot of derp happening ))
(21:58:08) DoctorTav: Now, then. :: turns to Wright and motions to her :: Come on over.
(21:58:34) ColDougMcKnight: :: Mutters under his breath. :: Lovely.
(21:58:41) CdrTKirr: We should arrive in approximately ten minutes (( or should we push that back for Wright? )) Lieutenant Wright is working with Tav and McKnight on a way to "interact" with the entities that attacked us.
(21:58:50) LtJGAlexisWright: :: approaches, smiling tentatively at the Doctor and the Colonel ::
(22:00:29) LtKuari: :: enters Sickbay, brightening at seeing McKnight sitting up, but sees they're in a meeting and hangs back near Tav's office ::
(22:00:38) LtJGAlexisWright: So... I was asked to go over the data analysis from the energy beings? With both of you? If this is a good time? :: looks from one man to the other, waiting for a response ::
(22:01:02) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods in approval and sits ::
(22:01:04) DoctorTav: :: walks to the stasis chamber and grabs the burned skin and muscle that he had had to remove from McKnight's arm, and walks back to McKnight's bed :: This is the flesh that I had to remove during the surgery. He was burned and the muscle killed all the way to the bone. :: hands the container to Wright ::
(22:01:38) LtCmdrPercy: What was that mister "I nearly lost my arm but I'm going to bitch about being out of commission for a whole day"?
(22:01:52) VAdmBlackthorne: (Kentucky-Fried Colonel!)
(22:02:29) VAdmBlackthorne: By "interact with" I presume, in addition to communicate with, you also mean "defend against."
(22:02:33) LtJGAlexisWright: :: had been clasping her PADD to her chest in a somewhat anxious fashion, but now sets it down on the foot of the biobed and accepts the container, whipping out her tricorder and inspecting it intently for a few moments :: Fascinating.
(22:02:35) ColDougMcKnight: Your orders were to do this nowish, I assume?
(22:02:42) DoctorTav: :: turns to the viewscreen next to the biobed and activates scans :: However, his bone looks completely unscathed, just like his armor. We need to figure out what that was that did this to him. Starfleet has nothing on record like this.
(22:03:10) CdrTKirr: You would presume correct.
(22:03:28) VAdmBlackthorne: Excellent.
(22:03:59) CdrTKirr: Oh, and the slipstream drive is on. Green lights.
(22:04:05) CdrTKirr: :: deadpanned ::
(22:04:31) VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns to look at her :: The test data?
(22:04:44) LtJGAlexisWright: :: belatedly glances at the Colonel :: Er, yes sir, under the assumption that you were up to it. :: realizes these were probably the wrong words to use the instant they come out of her mouth and turns with hyperfocus back to the sample, and the readouts for the biobed scans ::
(22:05:14) CdrTKirr: I'll await Busard's report.
(22:05:57) VAdmBlackthorne: Probably for the best.
(22:06:43) VAdmBlackthorne: Assume standard orbit on arrival, but if the situation's the same on this planet, we're not going back down without a way to deal with these whatever-they-ares.
(22:06:56) LtJGAlexisWright: Interesting. Okay. So here's what we know so far. We detected a previously unknown particle in the upper atmosphere of the planet, and also determined that these beings were EVERYWHERE down there, especially congregating around ruins of settlements.
(22:08:30) LtCmdrPercy: :: Pats his hand:: Well, unless you need me here, I should get back to work now that you're up and okay.
(22:08:39) ColDougMcKnight: :: Rolls his eyes and lies back, waiting for the part where he'd have anything to contribute to this discussion, having been unconscious for most of the intervening period, and stuck in here even longer. ::
(22:08:43) CdrTKirr: Agreed.
(22:08:47) LtJGAlexisWright: Long-range scans detected this particle again, on another planet in uncharted space, to which we are currently en route. Colonel, can you confirm for me whether you had an actual tactile sensation of something physically touching you, or some kind of pressure or weight being applied to you, or if all you felt was the pain from the tissue damage?
(22:09:05) ColDougMcKnight: Thanks for stopping by, Perce. I'll stop by engineering as soon as we're done here.
(22:09:09) CdrTKirr: :: stares off into space a moment, reliving the experience ::
(22:09:44) LtJGAlexisWright: :: senses that McKnight doesn't take her seriously and files that under "things to worry about later" ::
(22:10:11) ColDougMcKnight: You mean like an actual, kinetic impact? No. Just a burning sensation.
(22:10:16) DoctorTav: :: looks around to check up on Sickbay and seek Kuari by the office. He smiles at her, then turns back to the conversation at hand. ::
(22:10:19) CdrHarper: I should add that the slipstream drive is not literally "on." Standard procedure is to keep it powered down until time to jump due to power usage.
(22:10:35) LtCmdrPercy: You better. :: She leans down, kissing him on the cheek, and mutters "Love you" before turning to leave::
(22:10:43) VAdmBlackthorne: Thank you, Commander.
(22:10:54) CdrHarper: :: eyes the new slipstream drive panel ::
(22:11:00) LtKuari: :: grins at Tav, then looks to Percy as she departs the others ::
(22:11:01) CdrHarper: :: which does actually show a green light ::
(22:11:44) LtJGAlexisWright: So had you not had visual contact, you would not have been aware of the presence of an entity, is that correct? :: awkwardly tries to talk around Percy's affections, filing the observation that Percy doesn't take her seriously either in the same place... wonders for a moment if anyone takes her seriously ::
(22:12:44) LtCmdrPercy: :: Quirks an eyebrow at Wright's nervousness, but nods to the rest of them, trying not to interrupt too much as she exits::
(22:13:02) LtCmdrPercy: (The rest of them meaning Wright too. That....came out weird. Sorry :-P)
(22:13:26) LtJGAlexisWright: (( :: knew what you meant :: ))
(22:13:33) LtCmdrPercy: (Oh good)
(22:15:11) ColDougMcKnight: Uh...yeah, I guess that's right. I mean, the sensation actually traveled down my arm as the thing scratched me. I guess I probably would have figured someone had taken a shot at me with a high yield beam weapon.
(22:15:26) CdrTKirr: How is the Discovery faring?
(22:15:42) VAdmBlackthorne: She faced similar issues integrating the biogel drive with an isolinear system.
(22:16:20) LtJGAlexisWright: :: nods, considering :: So that would imply that even though we had the distinct impression of the being becoming more solid as it attacked, that it did not actually achieve physical solidity. Right?
(22:17:36) ColDougMcKnight: Solidity? No.
(22:17:37) CdrTKirr: :: nods, not surprised :: The more trouble is causes, the more research will be done on finding a solution.
(22:18:00) VAdmBlackthorne: I doubt future solutions will be quite as... bronze.
(22:18:03) DoctorTav: :: looks at Wright :: Could it have been phased?
(22:18:07) LtCmdrPercy: :: Heads back towards engineering, as she reflects on the events of the past few days. Oddly, it all seemed a bit fuzzy. Maybe that was the acid, though::
(22:18:11) LtJGAlexisWright: Okay. Doctor, were you able to recover any energy residue from the wound? Or was there any to begin with, even?
(22:18:13) CdrTKirr: :: frowns at the word ::
(22:18:39) LtKuari: :: watches Percy go, seeing that she's distracted, and rightly so ::
(22:18:57) DoctorTav: :: Everything I recovered is in the container you are holding.
(22:19:15) LtCmdrPercy: (It's the acid. She things Kuari's a shrubbery :-P)
(22:19:19) DoctorTav: (ignore that double colon)
(22:19:30) VAdmBlackthorne: It makes me wonder if retrofitting the isolinear ships to bioneural might not be the better idea.
(22:20:52) CdrTKirr: Possibly. We could have Busard do a study.
(22:22:00) VAdmBlackthorne: It would be a major overhaul.
(22:22:25) LtJGAlexisWright: Damn. I don't see any specific energy residue. Either it decayed too quickly, or it wasn't there to begin with. Phasing is one idea we're exploring, but certainly not the only idea. Doctor, what can you think of that will damage soft tissue, but not armor or bone?
(22:22:46) LtJGAlexisWright: And was it only the muscle that was damaged, or connective tissue as well?
(22:24:20) LtCmdrPercy: :: Steps into engineering, and gawks at the warp core::
(22:24:23) LtCmdrPercy: What...
(22:24:27) LtCmdrPercy: What...
(22:24:29) LtCmdrPercy: ...
(22:24:59) DoctorTav: Everything soft was damaged, and pretty badly. I've had that sample in stasis since I removed it. As far as a weapon or anything that can go through hard things without touching them and damage soft tissue? I've never heard of such a thing.
(22:25:11) LtJGAlexisWright: Or perhaps the better question is, what do armor and bone have in common?
(22:25:36) VAdmBlackthorne: (BONE ARMOR :zombie: )
(22:25:39) EnsUrist: Commander! ::AA::
(22:26:03) LtJGAlexisWright: Are the molecules arranged in some more dense fashion,...
(22:26:40) LtJGAlexisWright: :: musing now :: or maybe it has to do with the water content...
(22:27:10) DoctorTav: That's a question I've been trying to find an answer to since I woke up after operating on the Colonel.
(22:27:16) VAdmBlackthorne: At any rate, our bioneural systems should have accepted the drive just fine.
(22:27:25) DoctorTav: \
(22:27:39) VAdmBlackthorne: Perhaps the more modern gel gave the Voyager-era designs problems.
(22:28:23) LtJGAlexisWright: Colonel, you said it felt like a high-yield beam weapon. What effect would such a weapon have had on your arm under similar circumstances?
(22:29:28) ColDougMcKnight: Armored, or otherwise?
(22:30:03) CdrTKirr: Perhaps.
(22:30:05) LtJGAlexisWright: Just as you were when you were attacked. Would the damage have followed a similar pattern? Or would the armor you were wearing on the planet have deflected it in some way?
(22:30:35) CdrHarper: Arriving at the planet and assuming standard orbit. :: cuts the warp engines and attains an orbit ::
(22:31:24) CdrHarper: :: circularizes said orbit when Atlantis gets to periapsis ::
(22:31:39) VAdmBlackthorne: On screen.
(22:31:45) CdrHarper: :: thweep :: On screen.
(22:31:55) LtCmdrPercy: ...What...did you do. To my WARP CORE.
(22:33:25) EnsUrist: It was a necessary adaptation to the design we discovered during installation, ma'am.
(22:33:32) ColDougMcKnight: Uh, yeah. That's what it's designed for. First, assuming it hit one of the hard overlay segments, it would have lost energy as the ablative armor vaporized and dispersed the beam in the process. Then, it would have to get through the secondary layer, while the energy was further diffused by a series of conductive relays and collectors built into the high
(22:33:35) EnsUrist: I assure you it worked flawlessly!
(22:33:44) CdrTKirr: ACTION> The view of the planet from orbit looks similarly dead, shades of brown land masses and pale oceans.
(22:34:03) VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns to T'Kirr :: Any signs of life?
(22:34:46) ColDougMcKnight: strength fabric. Then there's the gel layer...basically, if it got to my muscle, it wouldn't do it without tearing through all that. And if it had any juice left after THAT, there's no reason at all why my calcium skeleton would do much to slow it down.
(22:35:20) VAdmBlackthorne: (The answer is clearly that McKnight is Wolverine)
(22:35:24) LtJGAlexisWright: So known energy weapons could not have had even remotely the same kind of effect. Hm. You said it was a burning sensation - do you mean you actually had a sensation of physical HEAT, or just that it was a burning sort of pain?
(22:35:30) ColDougMcKnight: (I am okay with this.)
(22:35:35) LtJGAlexisWright: (( I thought we knew that ))
(22:35:44) LtCmdrPercy: ( I am SO okay with this)
(22:35:49) CdrTKirr: :: already moving to Science, the crewman fleeing the camera, and brings up scan results :: No signs of life. The planet is different in geological composition, but clearly also once supported life.
(22:36:36) LtCmdrPercy: ...Tell me, tell me that isn't isolinear tech you put in this ship's systems.
(22:36:39) VAdmBlackthorne: Bloody hell.
(22:37:22) LtCmdrPercy: Do you have ANY IDEA what isolinear does to a SOVEREIGN-class starship's systems? :: Is starting to look more and more like she's going to whip out the wrench for beatings::
(22:37:58) EnsUrist: ...Generally it makes it work. And doesn't get a cold.
(22:38:13) CdrTKirr: :: taps at the panel, lets it beep a few times :: The same unique particle surrounds the planet, in the upper atmosphere. It has a much stronger presence here.
(22:38:34) ColDougMcKnight: No...I can't swear it's actually what was going on, but it definitely felt like heat. No idea at all why it only went after my meat suit, but from what I felt and was told afterward, the injury was pretty consistent with a plasma burn.
(22:38:36) EnsUrist: Weird that we had to use two adapters from biogel to isolinear, I thought the sovereign was built before that...
(22:38:48) LtCmdrPercy: NO. Sovereign's work on did you GET into Star Fleet?! Was someone drunk!?!
(22:39:33) LtCmdrPercy: That's because the ship works on BIOGEL.
(22:39:39) LtJGAlexisWright: Okay, a plasma burn. But theoretically, plasma should have had the same effect on your armor and bone tissue, right? I'm afraid this isn't my area of expertise.
(22:40:08) DoctorTav: :: turns to Wright :: How did his armor look?
(22:40:13) ColDougMcKnight: :: Shrugs :: Plasma's hot. That's literally pretty much it.
(22:41:24) LtJGAlexisWright: Completely undamaged. Not a scratch nor any kind of evidence of being struck in any way.
(22:42:08) DoctorTav: :: brings his hand to his chin:: Hmm.
(22:42:16) EnsUrist: It's been retrofitted? That would explain the... oh.
(22:42:25) ColDougMcKnight: Maybe an anergy field defense would have more luck? I generally don't use them much since a material defense is so much more reliable, but we DO have a couple of shield belts down in the armory.
(22:42:58) ColDougMcKnight: (energy)
(22:43:12) CdrTKirr: It appears the higher concentration is due to the planet being exposed more recently than the last planet. I'd like to launch a probe into the upper atmosphere.
(22:43:25) EnsUrist: Well, I was about to go off duty, but if you need help tuning the apparatus, I'm sure the extra hands could be used; there is certainly more equipment here than there was when we left spacedock! :C
(22:43:31) LtJGAlexisWright: :: nods :: definitely worth a try. Do you known of any weapon or modification to existing weapons we can make that would have a targeted short-range pattern-disruptive effect?
(22:43:42) EnsUrist: ((No I don't know what :C means but it seems the right sort of facial expression ))
(22:44:14) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods :: Go ahead.
(22:44:16) LtCmdrPercy: (Lol)
(22:44:23) LtJGAlexisWright: (( I thought you totally meant to do that ))
(22:44:24) CdrTKirr: :: launches a probe ::
(22:44:31) LtCmdrPercy: Oh god...oh god...just GET OUT OF my engineering!
(22:44:53) LtCmdrPercy: I swear to god you're worse than Puddington. And I'm not even sure he's sentient!
(22:46:06) CdrHarper: :: tweaks their orbital parameters out of habit, making minor corrections until it's almost perfect ::

(22:46:46) DoctorTav: (except in reverse?)
(22:46:48) ColDougMcKnight: Um...I know Star Fleet security's done tests regarding proposed modifications that would make phaser fire destructive to a holographic entity's magnetic containment field. They'd gotten paranoid about EMH programs being hacked and turning homicidal, as I recall.
(22:46:58) ColDougMcKnight: Anyway, I'm sure the specs are on file.
(22:47:17) CdrTKirr: :: scans the planet and shivers inwardly :: Ian...I'm detecting the same type of..."entities" on the planet's surface.
(22:47:47) VAdmBlackthorne: Then we are dependent on our team coming up with a solution.
(22:48:06) LtCmdrPercy: :: Removes her screwdriver and a PADD, and practically dives into all the copper machinery around the warp core:: I'm coming, baby! I'm coming. The bad man can't hurt you anymore!
(22:48:40) ColDougMcKnight: Something like that might do the trick? In any case, we could make the same modifications to the ship's phasers. I can't think of a better way to test it than from orbit.
(22:48:43) LtJGAlexisWright: That might be something worth looking in to. If the entities actually need to be more structurally "organized" to cause this kind of physical harm, maybe disruption of their energy patterns will prevent them from being able to do so. Temporary dispersal, rather than destruction, but it would be a place to begin. Am I making sense, here?
(22:49:48) LtCmdrPercy: :: Pauses just long enough to send a report to the bridge, reading: "Urist did everything wrong! Don't worry, I'm fixing it. Ship PROBABLY won't explode."::
(22:50:08) CdrTKirr: Receiving initial results from the probe. The particles are definitely the same as the previous planet, but these are in a newer state of decay and appear to have different properties. I suggest we collect a sample and have it analyzed.

(22:52:37) CdrTKirr: :: listens to Blackthorne's comm, somehow happy to hear the noise ::
(22:54:01) LtJGAlexisWright: Hmmmmm... and there's no certainty that they HAVE any kind of solid form. I'll report back to the bridge with our current findings, but let me know if you come up with anything else. I'll check in with both of you again in the near future. If that suits both of you?

(23:02:26) VAdmBlackthorne: (rofl)
(23:02:59) LtJGAlexisWright: The Colonel's wounds were serious, but the Doctor believe he will make a full recovery with the usage of his arm. The soft tissue seemed to have been damaged in a way consistent with plasma weapons, but left the armor, cloth, and bone unscathed.
(23:03:21) LtJGAlexisWright: (( my husband actually asked me what the hell I was laughing about. weasels are inherently funny, I think ))
(23:03:34) VAdmBlackthorne: ((Even more so when in a warp core)

(23:04:35) CdrTKirr: This is good news, and intriguing.
(23:04:49) DoctorTav: :: watches McKnight's wrist and arm :: On a scale of one to ten, how is the pain?
(23:05:37) LtJGAlexisWright: I'll get more in to the technical bits later, but we concluded that a good place to begin is to modify shipboard phasers to emit pattern dispersal beams with the intention of temporarily dispersing the energy so that it can't get organized enough to do physical damage.
(23:06:04) ColDougMcKnight: it a four.
(23:06:13) DoctorTav: :: nods :: Very well. You are on light duty. I will need to see you again in twelve hours to assess your prosthesis, and assuming all looks good, every 48 hours after that. Questions?
(23:06:16) LtJGAlexisWright: The Colonel mentioned some kind of research that was done on weaponry effective against holograms, and that might be something we can use here.
(23:06:40) CdrTKirr: You're talking about dispersing their forms so that they can't coalesce in order to inflict damage on a landing party?
(23:06:55) VAdmBlackthorne: :: listens with interest ::
(23:07:48) LtJGAlexisWright: Correct. My initial idea was to equip a landing party with these weapons, but the Colonel made the excellent point that we could test the theory from orbit before sending in an away team with weapons that might not work against enemies that ignore armor and conventional weapons.
(23:08:38) LtJGAlexisWright: The Colonel also suggest equipping away team members with shield belts, though we really don't know if they'll have any effect or not.
(23:09:46) CdrTKirr: :: nods :: Get your ideas ready for testing and let me know. Also, we have a probe bringing back particles in a newer state of decay that need analyzing.
(23:09:59) LtJGAlexisWright: But neither the Doctor nor the Colonel could think of any other weapon or substance that could so thoroughly destroy soft tissue without any damage done to armor, cloth, gel, or bone.
(23:10:07) ColDougMcKnight: Not right now. But you should probably know to expect an official request that my medical record over the past 24 hours be made available for me to personally review.
(23:10:21) LtCmdrPercy: (brb, must feed cats)
(23:11:07) DoctorTav: Very well. You are discharged. :: walks to his office without another word ::

(23:13:46) CdrTKirr: >_>
(23:14:07) LtJGAlexisWright: So hey, I was wondering, do we have someone that serves as ship's counselor? Because Alexis has some issues that she needs to work out.
(23:14:38) DoctorTav: We should probably get one. And at this point, I don't suggest Tav.
(23:14:41) VAdmBlackthorne: Not officially, no. It's a very tough position to play and still have something to do.
(23:15:02) ColDougMcKnight: Are we counting Jack?
(23:15:07) VAdmBlackthorne: You probably should.
(23:15:47) DoctorTav: Perhaps we need an Emergency Medical Counselor. To make sure that we know he is Emergency, we should set him/her apart as such, and then get two of them. So the second would be E= MC2
(23:15:55) LtJGAlexisWright: Oh snap, I could so be ship's counselor. My years of therapy and psychiatric care make me completely qualified.

(23:18:24) VAdmBlackthorne: If anyone is interested in doing that, please let me know.
(23:18:34) VAdmBlackthorne: But I'm not going to recruit someone for that job since it's so hard to do that and only that.
(23:18:41) LtJGAlexisWright: But seriously, though, I officially volunteer to do that if you think it's a good idea.
(23:19:13) ColDougMcKnight: If you think you'd enjoy it, then it's a good idea.
(23:19:22) VAdmBlackthorne: For a secondary character, sure.
(23:19:29) CdrTKirr: Yeah, make a secondary
(23:19:39) LtJGAlexisWright: But I'm still new at this and figuring stuff out, so if I'm not ready for a secondary character I totally understand.

(23:19:59) VAdmBlackthorne: Well, you could always go see Jack.
(23:20:11) DoctorTav: I think that there are a couple people here who will be needing a counselor in the near future. I am not naming names.
(23:20:35) LtJGAlexisWright: How about this: MAY I create the ship's counselor as my secondary character? I will understand if you say no.
