(20:58:24) CdrTKirr: Hiya.
(20:58:32) VAdmBlackthorne: Evening
(20:58:50) CdrTKirr: Wright said 10-15 min late, and I haven't heard from Tav (he's in Oregon atm)
(20:59:04) VAdmBlackthorne: ah, OK
(21:04:04) ColDougMcKnight [Mibbit@v-30-997-94-44.hsd7.vt.comcast.net] entered the room.
(21:04:19) VAdmBlackthorne: Evening!
(21:04:50) ColDougMcKnight: Evening.
(21:05:21) VAdmBlackthorne: We've got a couple that'll be late
(21:05:37) CdrTKirr: Hello.
(21:05:53) ColDougMcKnight: Fair enough. And hey!
(21:06:16) DoctorTav [Bryan@nvqgpx-26-05-15-884.bvtn.or.frontiernet.net] entered the room.
(21:06:23) VAdmBlackthorne: Evening doc
(21:06:26) DoctorTav: Hello from Portland
(21:07:39) CdrTKirr: Hm, apparently /glomp isn't a command
(21:07:51) VAdmBlackthorne: Alright, we'll give Wright a few more minutes.
(21:08:33) CdrTKirr: Been busy this week?
(21:08:59) VAdmBlackthorne: Yes, very much so
(21:09:09) CdrTKirr: Wright said she tried to get with you to write
(21:09:31) VAdmBlackthorne: Yeah, I was an awful person
(21:10:57) CdrTKirr: I totally didn't say that
(21:11:01) VAdmBlackthorne: I did!
(21:15:13) CdrTKirr: You know, if they took as long as we did on TV to make episodes, they never would make money
(21:15:53) VAdmBlackthorne: That's true.
(21:18:42) CdrTKirr: She's a bit later than she thought
(21:18:50) ColDougMcKnight: Heh, cough up a nice 6 figure salary, and I promise you some real motivation.
(21:19:09) VAdmBlackthorne: Damn skippy, but we have our fun for free :D
(21:19:26) DoctorTav: I am sensing some hostility in the room tonight. :P
(21:19:42) VAdmBlackthorne: None here!
(21:19:48) VAdmBlackthorne: I just feel bad about not writing
(21:20:05) CdrTKirr: No worries, you can do it now. =P
(21:20:34) VAdmBlackthorne: Well, it would make a good log, so we still might save it.
(21:20:43) CdrTKirr: Oh really?
(21:20:49) VAdmBlackthorne: Don't see why not
(21:20:57) CdrTKirr: Well what would you do now then =X
(21:21:04) CdrTKirr: Wright just started asking Thossk questions
(21:21:13) VAdmBlackthorne: Gloss over it and come back in the log. Or not.
(21:21:19) CdrTKirr: If you want to
(21:21:38) CdrTKirr: Ask her when she pops in and let me know
(21:21:47) CdrTKirr: Wanna start now for Medical and Marines?
(21:22:43) VAdmBlackthorne: Sure, why not.
(21:23:22) VAdmBlackthorne: :: digs out the whistle, no that's the wrong whistle ::
(21:23:33) CdrTKirr: <_<

(21:25:29) CdrTKirr has changed the topic to: Medical works to develop a proper "picture" of the Vrissk to apply to the transporter system while Science attempts to find out the history of the people (maybe) to better create their environment elsewhere. Marines find fossilized food but otherwise continue to protect the crew on the surface.
(21:26:01) CdrTKirr: Did I get that right
(21:26:25) VAdmBlackthorne: Seems like it.
(21:26:54) ColDougMcKnight: Yeah, that's about the shape of it.
(21:27:05) ColDougMcKnight: One question, though.
(21:27:29) ColDougMcKnight: We found this world already changed, right? Do we know what the atmosphere was like?
(21:29:04) VAdmBlackthorne: That's correct, and I believe it may have been deduced, but can't recall right now. Wright may.
(21:31:23) CdrTKirr: Sorry...people.
(21:31:47) CdrTKirr: And no, there's been no indication as to what the atmosphere was like.
(21:32:01) ChieftainThossk: That's speciest.
(21:32:42) CdrTKirr: We talked all about the other species' atmosphere, but not this planet's.
(21:33:03) ColDougMcKnight: Kay.
(21:33:12) LtAlexisWright [Mibbit@w-11-876-382-46.hsd1.wa.comcast.net] entered the room.
(21:33:17) VAdmBlackthorne: THere she is!
(21:33:48) CdrTKirr: Hi, Wright. =)
(21:33:54) LtAlexisWright: Sorry! Sorry! We closed escrow today and were signing all kinds of papers and stuff
(21:35:56) LtLedaHarper [Talaith@27-513-103-634.hlrn.qwest.net] entered the room.
(21:36:10) VAdmBlackthorne: Leda! Good evening.
(21:36:39) LtLedaHarper: [vrisssssssk]
(21:37:38) ChieftainThossk: (Yeah, and?)
(21:37:59) LtLedaHarper: [Nope, just savoring the hiss-and-click of it.]

(21:41:09) LtLedaHarper: [Not here until I get a sense for what the hell is going on.)
(21:41:37) CdrTKirr: [ Don't blame you, I mean...ghost lizards? Wth? ]
(21:41:45) ColDougMcKnight: :: In the cave still, taking some final scans. Even if there's no organic trace left, maybe something about the physical structure of what used to be a dried fish will be of some use to medical. ::
(21:42:37) CdrTKirr: (( fossil photos yay ))
(21:43:24) ChieftainThossk: No. The One Ones are our ancestors, the best of our kind that are lifted up to watch over us and judge our ways. Angering them is unwise, but we must have done it.
(21:43:45) CdrTKirr: (( Old ))
(21:43:45) ChieftainThossk: Creation? There have always been Vrissk, as far as anyone knows.
(21:43:51) ChieftainThossk: (Old ones, yes )
(21:44:35) LtAlexisWright: Tell me more about The Old Ones. What are the things that happen when you please them, or anger them? :: going into full-on anthropologist mode ::
(21:45:36) SthoKa: :: watches McKnight ::
(21:46:18) ChieftainThossk: Their blessings are good hunts, warm days. Particularly delicious food. Angering them means storms, no prey to be found, hardship.
(21:47:32) LtAlexisWright: :: nods :: And the storms - these bring strong winds? Floods? Lightning? Snow?
(21:47:48) ChieftainThossk: Yes, to all of that. We dislike snow and the cold.
(21:48:55) LtAlexisWright: I am going to show you pictures of some faraway places and I want you to tell me if any of them look similar to a place that you know. :: pulls out PADD and shows pictures - a tropical beach, a rain forest, a desert, grasslands, forests, scrubland, rolling hills, craggy mountain ranges ::
(21:50:30) ChieftainThossk: :: points out every place but the desert and the craggy mountains ::
(21:50:56) LtAlexisWright: And which places look most like the land around your village?
(21:51:20) ChieftainThossk: That. :: points on the rolling hills ::
(21:52:13) LtAlexisWright: Okay. Did you hunt and gather food, or did you farm, or keep herds of animals? :: shows representative pictures ::
(21:52:39) ColDougMcKnight: +Science+ McKnight to base camp. Prepare to receive tricorder scan data.
(21:53:19) CdrTKirr: (( I can be there if you like ))
(21:53:39) LtAlexisWright: (( that would be helpful ))
(21:53:54) CdrTKirr: +McKnight+ T'Kirr here. Standing by.
(21:54:00) ChieftainThossk: Hunting and gathering, always. We would occasionally move the village, however, this place was fortunate and we have stayed for many years.
(21:55:08) LtAlexisWright: How much of your food came from the waters? Like fish, clams,...
(21:55:33) ChieftainThossk: Some fish that we could catch from the river down there. :: points down the hill ::
(21:56:36) ColDougMcKnight: + T'Kirr + Uploading. Don't get your hopes up for the breakthrough we were hoping for, but maybe you can make something of it.
(21:56:49) CdrTKirr: +McKnight+ Understood.
(21:58:15) LtAlexisWright: Tell me about seasons. Did your weather change over time? :: shows representative photos of spring, summer, winter, fall ::
(21:59:21) ChieftainThossk: Mmm.. further north, the snow would fall more often in the colder times. We tend to avoid that.
(22:00:11) CdrTKirr: :: looks over the incoming scan data ::
(22:00:15) ColDougMcKnight: Hmm.
(22:00:55) LtAlexisWright: Just rain and sun? Cold or warm rain? Cold or warm sun?
(22:01:25) ColDougMcKnight: :: Runs through the problem. He doubts he'll come up with anything that science doesn't, but he has gotten lucky and contributed before. What would give some clue as to either the nature of this world of its inhabitants, pre-change? ::
(22:01:57) ChieftainThossk: We prefer warm sun and rain. If it gets too cold, we move south.
(22:02:10) ColDougMcKnight: :: Looks to SthoKa :: Hey, what color was the sky? Before the fire came?
(22:03:10) LtAlexisWright: So you are a traveling people who hunt and gather, prefer warmer lands but don't mind rain, and are more accustomed to grasslands than forests. Is this true?
(22:03:55) ChieftainThossk: There used to be a small forest on the other side of the river.
(22:04:22) LtAlexisWright: So having a forest nearby would be ideal.
(22:04:52) LtAlexisWright: What kind of materials did you use for clothing, shelter, tools?
(22:04:54) SthoKa: :: cocks her head at McKnight :: The color of water in the daylight, and scales behind the neck.
(22:05:04) ChieftainThossk: This place has been abundant, but so have others. Forests are not required for good hunting.
(22:05:19) ChieftainThossk: Our homes were made of skin from our animals.
(22:05:32) ChieftainThossk: Our food.
(22:05:40) LtAlexisWright: :: nods ::
(22:06:13) ColDougMcKnight: + Blackthorne + Atlantis, come in please.
(22:06:19) LtAlexisWright: :: making gamble :: Using all parts of the animal and wasting nothing shows great honor to their sacrifice.
(22:07:36) ChieftainThossk: The animal makes no sacrifice. It is food. Not Vrissk. We use it all because it is all useful.
(22:07:44) ChieftainThossk: :: finds these people very superstitious ::
(22:08:42) VAdmBlackthorne: +McKnight + Atlantis here. :: in the ready room ::
(22:08:48) LtAlexisWright: :: internal wince :: You speak true, Chieftain. Did you use things like wood or stone or metal?
(22:10:01) ColDougMcKnight: + Blackthorne + I was hoping you could pass on a request to the quartermaster. Could you beam down a Starfleet duty uniform to my present location? The turtleneck, specifically. Med/Sci division.
(22:10:17) CdrTKirr: :: separates the scan information into what appear to have been separate substances and compares the data with biological information in the database ::
(22:10:30) VAdmBlackthorne: +McKnight+ :: smirks :: I don't think we have any that fit reptiles.
(22:11:12) ColDougMcKnight: + Blackthorne + To be honest, I never thought those pajamas looked all that good on most humans. It's the color that's important, sir.
(22:11:35) ChieftainThossk: Wood, stone, fire-rock, bone, feather, sinew, everything we needed was around for the taking.
(22:11:47) VAdmBlackthorne: +McKnight+ I think I can arrange that, Colonel.
(22:12:05) ColDougMcKnight: + Blackthorne + Appreciated.
(22:12:09) LtAlexisWright: Fire-rock. A rock you struck to make sparks?
(22:14:00) ChieftainThossk: No. A rock made from cooled fire.
(22:14:20) ChieftainThossk: I had a spear... :: looks around ::
(22:14:29) LtAlexisWright: :: ponders that, sets it aside for later :: Okay, one last question for now. What are the 5 most important things that your people look for when choosing a place to settle?
(22:14:43) VAdmBlackthorne: :: relays the request through Harper, who sounds confused, but obeys ::
(22:14:47) LtAlexisWright: Imagine that you can bring nothing with you and you must start from the beginning.
(22:15:51) ChieftainThossk: Hm. Good hunting, clean water, warm sun, perhaps some wood, and some useful stone.
(22:16:13) LtAlexisWright: And large game, yes? Or is small game acceptable?
(22:16:15) VAdmBlackthorne: Harper> :: has been confused many times before by orders and doesn't even bother to try ::
(22:16:38) ChieftainThossk: Large animals feed many. Small ones are fuel to bring down the large ones.
(22:17:09) CdrTKirr: :: is able to identify some structures and comprises a list of similar species ::
(22:17:20) LtAlexisWright: I understand. Is there anything else you think I should know to help me find a new place for your people?
(22:17:56) ColDougMcKnight: :: Bend down when the transporter beam comes and goes, depositing its cargo in front of him, which he holds up in front of SthoKa. :: This is blue. Is this the color you're talking about? Lighter shade of it, maybe?
(22:18:16) ChieftainThossk: You ask many good questions, Rite. You may learn Vrissk ways yet.
(22:18:48) ChieftainThossk: :: gestures for her to follow to the center of the village ::
(22:18:51) SthoKa: Yes, this is the color. Lighter, yes.
(22:18:53) LtAlexisWright: :: suppresses a smile :: You honor me, Chieftain.
(22:18:57) ColDougMcKnight: Good, good.
(22:18:58) LtAlexisWright: :: follows ::
(22:19:11) ColDougMcKnight: + T'Kirr + McKnight to base camp. Come in, base camp.
(22:19:22) SthoKa: +McKnight+ Go ahead.
(22:20:05) CdrTKirr: +McKnight+ Go ahead.
(22:20:14) SthoKa: (( I'm right here! ))
(22:21:17) LtAlexisWright: :: quietly observing her surroundings ::
(22:21:22) ChieftainThossk: :: finds his spear still laying where he dropped it, what seems like so long ago, and points at it ::
(22:21:35) ColDougMcKnight: + T'Kirr + I may feel a little stupid if you've already dug this information up from some old telescope image or something, but this planet had a blue sky once, like Earth. Can you compare that against the radiation signature from this system's star, and determine if that means a similar gas mixture?
(22:22:17) LtAlexisWright: :: walks over to it, but does not touch it :: This is your spear.
(22:22:35) LtAlexisWright: :: looks up at Thossk for confirmation ::
(22:22:36) ChieftainThossk: Please. Take it.
(22:23:11) LtAlexisWright: :: leans down and picks it up, handling it carefully and with respect ::
(22:24:03) ChieftainThossk: It served me well for many years. It is yours, now.
(22:24:12) CdrTKirr: +McKnight+ That could provide helpful, yes. I will investigate. How did you come by this information?
(22:26:07) LtAlexisWright: :: inspecting the fine workmanship, evident even though made with relatively crude tools :: This was crafted by a loving hand, Chieftain. It must have great value to you.
(22:27:34) LtAlexisWright: I accept your gift on the condition that I may be allowed to return it to your own hands, if we are able to restore you.
(22:27:51) ChieftainThossk: It will not be necessary, Rait. I can make another.
(22:29:47) LtAlexisWright: Then I thank you for this kindness. I will treasure this always. :: actually getting a little teary-eyed ::
(22:30:46) ColDougMcKnight: + T'Kirr + I asked. And offered a visual aid for reference.
(22:30:51) ChieftainThossk: Good. If Vrissk do not return from... whatever we are... then remember us with this.
(22:33:27) LtAlexisWright: I will. And if we cannot save the Vrissk, I will share the story of your people so you will never be forgotten. :: lower lip wobble, tears brimming ::
(22:34:49) ChieftainThossk: Are you well, Rite? :: doesn't know what crying is, is just that badass, and also has no tear ducts ::
(22:36:20) CdrTKirr: +McKnight+ Very good. I'll look into it. Also, I'm able to find from your scans of what was fossilized similar species of fish and fruit. Some of it I can't identify, however.
(22:36:35) LtAlexisWright: :: wipes a tear away that falls down her cheek :: This is a way that my people express great sadness or pain. We call it 'crying'... drops of salty water called tears come from our eyes. It is difficult to control.
(22:36:47) ColDougMcKnight: :: Has the benefit of a faceplate concealing all his features. Also, Scottish. ::
(22:37:15) CdrTKirr: (( lol ))
(22:37:24) ChieftainThossk: Mmm. That seems inconvenient.
(22:37:36) LtAlexisWright: It makes me very sad to consider that we may be unable to save your people. It would be a tragic loss.
(22:38:27) LtAlexisWright: It can be inconvenient, but it is something that we have always done. :: shrugs ::
(22:39:00) ChieftainThossk: You will do your best. I know this.
(22:39:57) ColDougMcKnight: + T'Kirr + Apparently, one of them is something called "honey berry". The rest is up to you.
(22:40:00) LtAlexisWright: :: squares shoulders and pulls herself together :: Yes. I need to return to my home to begin searching for a home for the Vrissk. If you think of anything else, you can ask any of our people to call for me and I will come.
(22:40:30) ChieftainThossk: I shall. Thank you, Rite.
(22:41:18) CdrTKirr: +McKnight+ Understood. What will you do now?
(22:41:58) LtAlexisWright: Thank you for sharing your memories with me, Chieftain Thossk. +Transporter Room+ One to beam up. :: dematerializes, along with spear ::
(22:42:05) ColDougMcKnight: + T'Kirr + Explain to our guide what I've been on about, then make my way back to camp and stand around looking scary. Unless you have further orders?
(22:42:52) CdrTKirr: +McKnight+ No, carry on. I wil see you here.
(22:43:00) LtAlexisWright: :: hustles out of the transporter room with barely a nod to the engineer, headed for the lab :: +Tav+ Wright to Doctor Tav.
(22:44:44) DoctorTav: +Wright+ Go ahead.
(22:45:28) LtAlexisWright: Transporter Engineer> Um... Security? Lieutenant Wright just left transport bay 4 carrying... a spear. Just... thought you might want to know?
(22:46:11) CdrTKirr: (( lol ))
(22:46:50) LtAlexisWright: +Tav+ I think I have a pretty good idea of what I'm looking for environmentally, but I was hoping you might have some input in terms of digestive systems. Nothing to specific, just... is there anything poisonous that I need to be careful about?
(22:47:31) VAdmBlackthorne: Syvek> +Transporter+ We will take that under advisement. Thank you.
(22:47:59) LtAlexisWright: :: marching through the halls on a mission, talking to Tav and not noticing the people scurrying out of the way and giving her odd looks as she walks past them clutching the aforementioned spear ::
(22:48:56) DoctorTav: +Wright+ From what I have found, what would be generally poisonous to humanoids would also be poisonous to the Vrissk, with a few exceptions here and there.
(22:49:06) LtAlexisWright: (( nothing toO specific even ))
(22:49:57) DoctorTav: (( He might have to do some testing once they are re-corporealized ))
(22:50:02) ColDougMcKnight: + T'Kirr + McKnight out, then.
(22:50:03) LtAlexisWright: +Tav+ Okay. Well, if you can send me the data on the exceptions when you have it, that'd be great... I don't want to find the perfect planet for them only to discover that what I'd intended as their primary food source actually makes them die.
(22:50:46) CdrTKirr: (( That would be bad. ))
(22:50:51) ColDougMcKnight: :: Looks to SthoKa :: None of that had anything directly to do with your immediate problem, I'm afraid. But you helped ensure that if and when you start using your lungs again, you'll be able to breathe the air.
(22:51:00) LtAlexisWright: (( srsly ))
(22:51:20) DoctorTav: +Wright+ I hear you. We'll do testing once they are aboard, and once I have bodies to work with. Until then, everything is conjecture. They may have differences between them like food allergies and such. Other than that, I just can't know yet.
(22:52:17) SthoKa: :: has no idea what the sky color has to do with breathing, but raises her head in acknowledgement ::
(22:52:43) LtAlexisWright: +Tav+ Understood. Would the biome information I got from my interview with the Chieftain be helpful to you at all? :: swishes into the lab, causing a startled ensign to bump into another startled ensign ::

(22:53:27) DoctorTav: +Wright+ Absolutely. I can check it against what I have seen from their genome.

(22:58:26) LtAlexisWright: :: looks at the spear in confusion for a moment, then realization appears to dawn :: OH! Right. It's a spear. Quite well-made, too, don't you think? Look at the workmanship around the point, and....
(22:59:41) ColDougMcKnight: 77> Yeah, pretty slick. And not exactly a catastrophic security breach. You're already authorized to carry around much more hefty firepower. It's just that technically, any weapon's supposed to be on record and accounted for. You know, logged and noted. We've got a list of all the Colonel's cabin decor, even.
(23:00:28) ColDougMcKnight: 77> So, the transporter tech flagged it with Lieutenant Syvek, and he sent me. So, you mind if I just secure that, do the due diligence, and drop it by your quarters?

(23:02:28) LtAlexisWright: You can stay and watch, if you're in to that sort of thing.
(23:03:05) ColDougMcKnight: 77> Oh, sure. I guess. Just kick a memo up to the office about getting it re-classified as mission related material for me?

(23:07:02) VAdmBlackthorne: Would have made a great log, but that worked well too! (my fault about the log )
(23:07:08) CdrTKirr: The spear was funny, and nice jumping in at the end with #77
(23:07:14) LtAlexisWright: :: blushblushblushblush ::
(23:07:35) CdrTKirr: I suppose you could always logify it
(23:07:45) CdrTKirr: Use sim as an outline, if you will
(23:08:05) CdrTKirr: McKnight I thought the uniform idea was creative. =P
(23:08:22) LtAlexisWright: Could! It might have to wait a few weeks though because moving.
(23:08:22) VAdmBlackthorne: Yes, it's very starfleet to use uniform blue.
(23:08:34) LtAlexisWright: Me too, I was actually wondering how you were going to describe blue
(23:08:34) ColDougMcKnight: Oh, thank you!
(23:08:35) CdrTKirr: Ah, so now you're busy
(23:08:53) DoctorTav: I thought that was fantastic, too.
(23:09:09) LtAlexisWright: Although I think my Starfleet Science blue looks QUITE snappy on me, thankyouverymuch
(23:09:09) CdrTKirr: And here I thought I was being an ass for evading your question =P
(23:09:09) ColDougMcKnight: My first throught was to look for some Starfleet blue on his uniform. Then I remember that marines are all about basic black.
(23:09:32) CdrTKirr: Wright likes pajamas.
(23:09:53) LtAlexisWright: I'm wearing pajamas RIGHT NOW.
(23:09:59) CdrTKirr: Yeah I thought about that too, I'm like...mm, no stitch of blue on his armor, nope.
(23:10:04) LtAlexisWright: With a ROBE, even.
(23:10:21) CdrTKirr: And, well, Stho'Ka may remember scale color, but we sure as heck can't see it to verify
(23:10:31) LtAlexisWright: Same with the water
(23:10:39) CdrTKirr: <3 my robe
(23:10:50) VAdmBlackthorne: You've all done amazing work with a very cerebral plot.
(23:10:52) CdrTKirr: Yeah the water was a cheat =P
(23:11:28) LtAlexisWright: This plot deserves a lot of credit for giving us all room to spread our metaphorical wings :)
(23:11:48) VAdmBlackthorne: Absolutely! We've created a people that have come to life in our imaginations.
(23:12:01) CdrTKirr: Glad you're liking it ^_^
(23:12:09) LtAlexisWright: But I really really really really really hope we can save the Vrissk, I actually did tear up a little bit for reals.
(23:12:22) CdrTKirr: Aw =P
(23:12:28) VAdmBlackthorne: Aw!
(23:12:34) CdrTKirr: I want a Vrissk plushy
(23:12:48) LtAlexisWright: You made me giggle so hard that I snorted
(23:13:00) CdrTKirr: =P
(23:13:39) LtAlexisWright: I kind of picture Vrissk to be like the velociraptors in Jurassic Park except less likely to eat me
(23:14:06) VAdmBlackthorne: Clever girl.
(23:14:13) LtAlexisWright: Exactly.
(23:14:27) CdrTKirr: Heh heh
(23:14:45) CdrTKirr: tappity tap tap
(23:15:05) LtAlexisWright: ?
(23:15:19) LtAlexisWright: Oh with the talons on the floor
(23:15:33) CdrTKirr: Yeah
(23:16:17) LtAlexisWright: Except the chieftain is a really old one so he kinda looks more muppet-y and wears a Willie Nelson headband
(23:16:27) ChieftainThossk: I totally do.
(23:16:28) LtAlexisWright: I have a vivid imagination, apparently
(23:16:34) CdrTKirr: lol
(23:16:53) CdrTKirr: Well, did wear a headband
(23:17:32) LtAlexisWright: it's a ghostly headband or something. Give the manraptor some dignity!
(23:17:43) CdrTKirr: hahaha
(23:18:00) CdrTKirr: Would that require a loincloth
(23:18:12) SthoKa left the room.
(23:18:46) CdrTKirr: Well good night all, see you next week
(23:19:04) VAdmBlackthorne: G'night! :)
(23:19:21) CdrTKirr: Glad you could sit in, Harper =)
(23:19:48) LtAlexisWright: G'night everyone! :D Thanks for the fun!
(23:19:58) LtAlexisWright left the room (quit: Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
(23:20:00) DoctorTav: Good night, guys!
(23:20:01) VAdmBlackthorne: Yes, look forward to having you back on a regular basis!
(23:20:07) DoctorTav left the room.
(23:20:20) CdrTKirr left the room.
