(21:00:05) ChanServ 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.

(21:02:21) CdrTKirr: Greetings.
(21:02:28) LtAlexisWright: I've been packing all day and I think I even SMELL tired so my apologies in advance if I suck it up big time tonight.
(21:02:29) CdrTKirr: Tav will be along shortly.

(21:08:03) VAdmBlackthorne: Evening
(21:08:13) ColDougMcKnight: Sorry we're late. We were having a video conference with our wedding officiant.
(21:08:43) VAdmBlackthorne: No worries
(21:11:22) DoctorTav [] entered the room.
(21:11:32) DoctorTav: Good evening everyone

(21:16:05) CdrTKirr has changed the topic to: With all the data we have collected, we work to study more of what the Vrissk must have been like so we can relocate them.
(21:16:25) CdrTKirr: Questions...
(21:16:39) DoctorTav: Many, but I have to come up with the answer
(21:16:54) DoctorTav: Well, we do.
(21:17:09) CdrTKirr: Let's get a start on it, then! Ready, set, go!

(21:18:27) ChieftainThossk: :: wandering listlessly through the village ::
(21:19:03) DoctorTav: :: is in Sickbay, poring over data from the transporters and lining them up with data from the probe and sensors, almost ready to get started creating the first new Vrissk body. He suddenly wonders if this could line up with anything in the Vrissk theology and mythos. ::
(21:22:20) VAdmBlackthorne: :: in the ready room, waiting for news ::
(21:22:54) ColDougMcKnight: :: By this time, McKnight and his group have come back to the base camp, and are busy lugging around parts, assembling a pre-fab environmental enclosure with a transparent outer wall. ::
(21:24:01) LtAlexisWright: :: in the lab, conveniently forgetting to have the spear labeled as mission evidence, has just finished dictating environmental variables deduced from Thossk to the computer :: Computer, use these variables to determine likely biomes and environmental features and discard all results with less than 80% match.

(21:27:39) LtAlexisWright: Computer> Processing. Estimated number of results is over one thousand.
(21:28:02) LtAlexisWright: +Syvek+ Go ahead.
(21:29:46) DoctorTav: :: Over time, Tav gets the entire genome parsed down to where only 0.00001% of the DNA strand needs to be changed in order to give all the Vrissk their appearance and demeanor back... save for any scars each Vrissk might have from their daily life since hatching. ::
(21:29:50) LtAlexisWright: Computer, halt search. Instead, provide list of clarifying variables necessary to increase specificity.
(21:29:53) VAdmBlackthorne: Syvek> +Wright+ Lieutenant, this is just a reminder that security still needs to catalog the spear that you brought aboard.
(21:31:50) LtCmdrBusard: :: Looking through the transporter systems, calculating how many lifeforms could be processed at a time.::

(21:33:14) DoctorTav: +Wright+ Sickbay, to Lt Wright.
(21:33:18) VAdmBlackthorne: Syvek> +Wright+ Thank you, lieutenant. Syvek out.
(21:34:17) LtAlexisWright: Computer> Please input specificity parameters.
(21:35:38) LtAlexisWright: :: is getting flustered with so many people talking to her at once! Takes a deep breath...:: +Sickbay+ What can I do for you, Doctor?
(21:35:49) DoctorTav: +Wright+ I have completed the calculations to place Stho'Ka back into her body... Assuming it works. Would you mind rechecking my numbers?
(21:38:12) LtAlexisWright: :: sinks into her chair, shoulders shaking due to something between laughter and tears :: +Sickbay+ Sure. Send them over. But you're going to need to tell me what I'm looking at, otherwise I might as well be checking a recipe for chocolate chip cookies.
(21:38:47) LtAlexisWright: :: taps commands into the computer, who is finally satisfied and begins processing
(21:39:50) DoctorTav: :: sends the data to Wright :: +Wright+ Thank you for doing this. Basically, I have worked to take the Vrissk DNA pattern and turn it into a Transporter pattern buffer pattern, and I just want a second person to say that either they think it will work, or it won't. I can't think of anyone I would trust for something like that more than you.
(21:40:20) CdrTKirr: (( Aww.... ))
(21:42:04) LtAlexisWright: :: flattered, scans through the data as it appears on the screen :: +Sickbay+ Well, I don't see any errors in your math... theoretically, with some assumptions, this should work... but there's one important thing that I think we're missing.
(21:42:41) DoctorTav: +Wright+ And that's why I am glad I had you check. What are you thinking?
(21:44:31) LtAlexisWright: :: is amazed, because this is actually some pretty genius stuff :: +Sickbay+ I tightened up a few of your algorithms, so take a look at what I'm sending back... but the biggest thing that's missing is that neither of us are engineers. Have you asked Percy to take a look at it? Theory is great, but I'm not sure what the hardware is actually capable of.

(21:46:38) LtCmdrBusard: (That was very weird)
(21:46:41) LtAlexisWright: :: is receiving some of the results she asked the computer for :: Good. Good. We can work with this.

(21:46:49) LtCmdrBusard: (Probably a network hiccup)
(21:47:04) ColDougMcKnight: (Did McKnight comming T'Kirr show up before we got booted?)
(21:47:22) DoctorTav: (I don't see it)
(21:47:48) LtAlexisWright: +Sickbay+ It does seem to be a plus, but mostly my intention was to increase processing speed for greater throughput. :: grins ::
(21:47:59) LtCmdrBusard: (What about the number of lizards we can make? I posted twice about that)
(21:48:16) LtAlexisWright: (( newp ))

(21:48:53) LtCmdrBusard: Hm...looks like we can make 42.5....let's just round that down. No one wants to be half a lizard.
(21:49:29) LtAlexisWright: (( XD ))
(21:49:52) LtCmdrBusard: (:-))

(21:51:16) CdrTKirr: (( o.O ))
(21:51:29) LtAlexisWright: +Sickbay+ Let me know when you have your first reconstituted Vrissk, because there are some very important questions regarding atmospherics that I can't ask something non-corporeal without a mutually standardized unit of measurement. ))
(21:51:32) VAdmBlackthorne: (INTERNETS)
(21:51:42) LtCmdrBusard: (Stupid internets)
(21:52:10) ColDougMcKnight: + T'Kirr + Just wondering if we had that atmosphere mixture figured out yet. We've got an enclosure set up down here, ready to be pumped full of whatever we order up. If Tav and Busard pull off their magic up there, the entire village will be able to see it.
(21:52:12) LtAlexisWright: (( I don't know why I put )) after that ))
(21:52:14) DoctorTav: +Wright+ You've got it. Let me get ahold of engineering and see what the Chief has to say.
(21:52:37) DoctorTav: +Busard+ LtCdr Busard, this is Sickbay.
(21:53:08) LtCmdrBusard: +Sickbay+ Busard here.
(21:54:11) CdrTKirr: +McKnight+ Science is working on it. I'll let you know when I've been updated.
(21:54:15) DoctorTav: +Busard+ I have completed some medical plans for giving the Vrissk their bodies back. I'd like to send you some information and see what you, a Transporter and a warp core could do with it.
(21:56:16) LtCmdrBusard: :: Quirks her eyebrow :: I'm not sure what the warp core would help with, but send me the information. I've done some calculations, and it looks like we can...let's call it transmute for now...42 beings at a time. I'm not certain how many Vrissk we're dealing with, though.
(21:57:56) DoctorTav: +Busard+ Sending it now. And as far as the numbers, at 42 at a time, we would have all the Vrissk transmuted... I like that word... within a day. :: sends the data to Busard's workstation ::
(21:58:19) LtAlexisWright: +T'Kirr+Lab to Commander T'Kirr.
(21:58:48) LtCmdrBusard: :: Looks it over:: +Tav+ Great. I'll plug your information in and prepare.
(21:59:06) CdrTKirr: +Lab+ This is T'Kirr.
(22:01:49) LtAlexisWright: +T'Kirr+ Commander, we have some preliminary results from the information gleaned from the Chieftain. I'm sending you data on the top three possible atmospheric content mixtures, but I really can't get specific on the levels without being able to actually test. Oxygen/Nitrogen looks like the best bet, so we should start with that. Unfortunately,
(22:03:27) LtAlexisWright: +T'Kirr+ I can only guess at humidity and temperature until we can actually ask them about it, so I'd mimic tropical Earth and adjust from there
(22:04:32) CdrTKirr: +Wright+ Understood. Thank you for the data. I know you have your hands full. I'll supervise the testing myself.
(22:05:53) LtAlexisWright: +T'Kirr+ I'm actually at a point where I need to know the atmospherics/humidity/temperature stuff before I can progress too much further, so may I ask to get a live feed of your testing and results?
(22:06:50) ColDougMcKnight: :: Leans against the enclosure, considering. Transparent aluminum can easily be rendered as opaque as...regular aluminum. If this is going to take awhile, perhaps he could just dial up a familiar oxygen/nitrogen mixture, then supplement it with an equally familiar ethanol mixture...
(22:07:28) CdrTKirr: +Wright+ Of course. I'll make sure you're patched in.
(22:07:52) LtAlexisWright: +T'Kirr+ Thank you, Commander. Good luck.
(22:09:31) CdrTKirr: :: stands and makes her way towards Science :: +McKnight+ T'Kirr to McKnight. I have the data from Wright. Sending it to you now. :: makes it to the console and starts tapping ::
(22:10:45) ColDougMcKnight: +T'Kirr+ Receiving...
(22:11:17) LtAlexisWright: Computer, given the size of target planet, planet's proximity to star, target location on planet surface, and description of seasonal changes, please extrapolate atmospheric variables, axial tilt, length of day, length of year, and possible global weather patterns.
(22:12:40) ColDougMcKnight: :: Tappity tap :: 74 % nitrogen, 23% oxygen, .4 % C02, .9 % argon...well, I am getting downright homesick,
(22:13:29) LtCmdrBusard: (Sorry guys, but I'm getting really achy and am going to have to call it a night to deal with that.)
(22:13:44) CdrTKirr: (( Aw I'm sorry. Feel better! ))
(22:13:52) LtAlexisWright: (( What she said ))
(22:14:45) ColDougMcKnight: +T'Kirr+ Simulated atmosphere in place. Good timing. I was just thinking where I might put a bar in this thing.
(22:16:00) CdrTKirr: +McKnight+ That could very well taint the results. :: totally straight-faced :: Monitoring the balance.
(22:16:43) LtAlexisWright: :: has a thought :: Computer, aside from Atlantis crew on surface, do sensors indicate any organic material extant on the planet?
(22:17:27) LtAlexisWright: Computer> Sensor readings are negative for all organic material except Atlantis crew.
(22:18:35) LtAlexisWright: Computer, do sensors pick up expected inorganic readings? Metals?
(22:19:09) DoctorTav: :: quickly takes the information back from Busard with modifications she was able to make to make the patterns more transporter-friendly. Tav sends the patterns to Transporter Room 7, and follows as quickly as he can so he can continue the work of recombobulating the Vrissk. ::
(22:19:24) LtCmdrBusard: (Thanks. If you need to, assume that Percy has ...thanks Tav. That thing :-P. Good night all!)
(22:19:34) LtCmdrBusard left the room (quit: Quit: ajax IRC Client).
(22:20:00) LtAlexisWright: Computer> Inorganic readings fall within normal parameters.
(22:21:01) CdrTKirr: (( recombobulating... *snicker* ))
(22:21:04) LtAlexisWright: Display mineral analysis.
(22:24:04) LtAlexisWright: :: pans around the display, noting :: Great expanses of salt flats indicating salt lakes or oceans. Limestone aquifers common. Minor but ongoing tectonic activity... sulfur springs...
(22:28:02) DoctorTav: :: arrives in Transporter Room 7 and switches it to testing mode. He sets up the pattern in the buffer and gets everything ready for what comes next. +Wright+ Tav to Wright.
(22:28:15) LtAlexisWright: +Tav+ Go for Wright.
(22:30:35) DoctorTav: +Wright+ I am in Transporter Room 7 and ready to build Stho'Ka's body from our information. Would you like to be here?
(22:32:06) LtAlexisWright: +Tav+ I'm on my way. Go ahead and get started.
(22:33:36) DoctorTav: :: places the Transporter into testing mode and runs a simulated build a few times while he awaits Wright's arrival ::
(22:33:37) SthoKa: :: is unsuspecting ::
(22:33:56) LtAlexisWright: :: grabs the spear, wraps it in a lab coat, and hurries to the nearest TL :: Deck 20.
(22:34:47) DoctorTav: +McKnight+ Transporter Room 7 to Away Team,
(22:35:31) LtAlexisWright: :: swishes into TR7 :: Is Stho'Ka ready for this?
(22:37:41) LtAlexisWright: :: feels like she kinda bonded with Stho'Ka and is worried about her ::
(22:38:27) ColDougMcKnight: +Tav+ McKnight here.
(22:39:02) DoctorTav: :: turns to Wright :: She will be in a moment. :: turns back to the console and continues inputs :: So here's how it's going to work. I am going to materialize the body here as a test. After that, we will transport that body, along with a signal that should start it up and allow Stho'Ka's electrical pattern to accept it.
(22:39:03) DoctorTav: +McKnight+ Colonel, I am about to have a body for one of the Vrissk, Stho'ka. Can you give me her exact location, and warn her that what is about to happen may feel really weird, and that that's assuming everything goes right?
(22:39:44) DoctorTav: :: takes the tranporter out of testing mode, and begins to materialize the body on the pad. ::
(22:40:20) LtAlexisWright: :: slightly alarmed that nobody is asking Stho'Ka if this is okay and that it may actually destroy her consciousness if things go really badly ::
(22:40:59) DoctorTav: +McKnight+ Also, could you get her final consent that she is ready and willing to do this?
(22:41:03) SthoKa: :: cocks an ignorant head towards the camp ::
(22:41:31) ColDougMcKnight: +Tav+ Little worrying that that was an afterthought, but yes. I'll get right on that. McKnight out.
(22:41:53) CdrTKirr: *coughmadscientistcough*
(22:42:21) LtAlexisWright: +McKnight+ And please make sure that she is aware of the danger, and that the Chieftain approves. Er... this is Wright.
(22:43:59) ColDougMcKnight: +Wright+ Yes, I know.
(22:44:04) DoctorTav: :: blinks a few times and looks to Wright :: That wasn't explained to her already?
(22:44:19) LtAlexisWright: :: to Tav :: Even if he has no real power at the moment, these are still his people and it is still his choice.
(22:44:37) LtAlexisWright: Who would have explained anything!? And when?
(22:44:57) DoctorTav: :: nods, turning back to the shimmering pad :: That makes sense.
(22:45:20) ColDougMcKnight: :: Steps into what used to be the village center, and turns up the volume on his helmet speakers to max to ensure he gets everyone's attention:: CHieftain! Stho'ka! I need to speak with you!
(22:45:47) DoctorTav: :: keys in some adjustments and the body comes more into corporealness :: Hmm. I guess you're right. I have been working on this quite a bit without explaining it to a lot of other people.
(22:45:51) SthoKa: :: cocks her ethereal head the other way, then approaches the camp ::
(22:46:21) SthoKa: :: or rather, the village center ::
(22:46:36) ChieftainThossk: :: heads to the beckoning MacNait ::
(22:46:47) LtAlexisWright: +McKnight+ Thank you. I'm sorry. The Doctor is a bit.... preoccupied, so I wanted to make certain.
(22:47:16) ColDougMcKnight: +Wright+ It's fine. Just-
(22:47:30) ColDougMcKnight: :: Winces at the feedback. :: Mother fucker! McKnight out.
(22:48:01) SthoKa: :: stops behind McKnight :: Mother who?
(22:48:27) LtAlexisWright: :: turns to Tav :: Did he say something like "Mud...rucker"?
(22:48:57) ChieftainThossk: Fuh-ker.
(22:49:15) ColDougMcKnight: :: Turns at the voice, and takes a moment to turn his helmet mic back down to normal volume. :: It's's not important. But I need you to make a decision. A big one. Both of you.
(22:49:59) DoctorTav: :: The body appears, and Tav walks around the console with a medical tricorder to take scans :: This is almost what I was looking to create. There is no heartbeat, but it would be capable of life in a few situations, but it's not completely right. :: turns back to Wright as he walks to the console and holds back a grin at the question :: I wonder what would piss him off so much.
(22:50:11) SthoKa: :: shares a look with Thossk ::
(22:50:53) ChieftainThossk: They are ready to try.
(22:50:53) LtAlexisWright: :: blinks :: Piss who off of what?
(22:50:59) DoctorTav: :: walks around the console, and noting the changes he needs to make, dematerializes this body into the ether. He updates a few things in the transporter controls and materializes a new body, scans it and is happy with the results. :: I think we're ready.
(22:52:04) ColDougMcKnight: We promised we'd try to make you whole again. Now, I'm told we're ready to make the actual attempt. Our thought is to try with you first, Stho'ka. We've studied you the closest and the longest, so that's the best chance.
(22:52:16) DoctorTav: :: turns to Wright :: Don't mind what he said, he was cussing. From his tone of voice, something surprised him, and then annoyed him. Did you... Oh, crap. I owe him an apology. It's never good to use ship to shore comm from the Transporter Room while using the Transporter, or vice versa.
(22:53:18) ChieftainThossk: :: looks to Stho'Ka :: The decision is yours, sister.
(22:53:46) DoctorTav: :: turns back to the Stho'Ka body on the platform :: Lieutenant Wright, we have done it. We are ready. You, Percy and I make a good scientific team.
(22:53:58) SthoKa: :: looks to Thossk again, then back to McKnight, bowing her head suddenly :: I am brave. I will do what I must to help our people to live again.
(22:54:09) LtAlexisWright: :: cocks her head to the side, looking at Tav as though he is some sort of perplexing specimen she hasn't managed to work out yet ::
(22:54:24) LtAlexisWright: Well, I certainly hope so, since we literally are the Atlantis scientific team.
(22:54:39) CdrTKirr: (( Five minutes ))
(22:55:04) DoctorTav: :: nods :: And I think we're among the best. If this doesn't make us THE best. +Blackthorne+ Admiral Blackthorne, this is Doctor Tav.
(22:55:04) ColDougMcKnight: Hold on. You need to know what you'd be deciding. We've said already, we're not gods. We have knowledge, skill, not magic. We can't guarantee your safety. There IS a chance, albeit a remote one, that this will kill you.
(22:55:46) ColDougMcKnight: All I CAN say is that we've done out very best. If that's not enough, we'll keep trying. But realistically, we never will be able to make a guarantee.
(22:56:03) VAdmBlackthorne: +Tav+ Go ahead, doctor.
(22:56:19) ChieftainThossk: :: watches her as MacNait speaks ::
(22:56:22) SthoKa: :: meets McKnight's eyes :: There is always a chance the plain beast will skewer me with its tusks when I hunt it to feed my tribe. I am brave. I will do this.
(22:57:02) LtAlexisWright: :: decides she needs to have a long talk with Tav about hubris later, and hopes this time it works out. ::
(22:58:02) DoctorTav: +Blackthorne+ Sir, Wright and I have created a body for one of the Vrissk. McKnight is getting the Chieftan and her permission to attempt to put this body around and attach to her electrical signal. They are being made aware of the high risk of this operation.
(22:58:18) DoctorTav: +Blackthorne+ Do I have your permission to proceed?
(22:58:33) ColDougMcKnight: :: Considers a moment, then nods. :: Then prepare yourself, warrior. I can't guarantee it'll be painless, either.
(22:58:41) VAdmBlackthorne: +Tav+ IF you have informed consent from the Vrissk, doctor.
(22:58:58) SthoKa: :: puffs out her transparent reptilian chest ::
(22:59:06) LtAlexisWright: Tav, don't give me credit here... you did all the work on the body. I'll take credit if I can find them a new home.
(22:59:25) DoctorTav: +Blackthorne+ Aye, Admiral. Tav out.
(22:59:53) DoctorTav: :: turns to Wright :: Without your changes to the pattern, this would have had a much higher chance of turning into a disaster.
(23:00:04) CdrTKirr: (( any last lines ))
(23:00:14) ChieftainThossk: :: nods to Stho'Ka :: Safe journeys, Huntress Stho'Ka. I hope to see you again, wherever we end up.
(23:00:18) LtAlexisWright: :: blushes :: I just did some math stuff is all.
(23:00:34) ColDougMcKnight: +Tav+ Proceed when ready.

(23:04:42) DoctorTav: I think that should be fantastic
(23:04:43) SthoKa: Thanks everyone. I hope everyone makes next week. =)
(23:05:00) LtAlexisWright: I'm moving on Saturday and we should have internet by Monday
(23:05:02) SthoKa: 'Cause I wanna live and stuff
(23:05:14) DoctorTav: We're rooting for ya!
(23:05:19) LtAlexisWright: so unless Comcast is criminally incompetent
(23:05:30) LtAlexisWright: .... wait, I guess I'm screwed then >>;
(23:05:37) VAdmBlackthorne: They are, but maybe you'll get lucky.
(23:05:47) DoctorTav: They have to be better than Frontier
(23:06:13) LtAlexisWright: My husband is a network engineer. Surely someone in our neighborhood will have a poorly secured wireless network that he can... borrow.
(23:06:44) CdrTKirr: haha
(23:07:01) CdrTKirr: Just hotspot from your phone =P
(23:07:38) LtAlexisWright: I'll actually have to keep an eye on the data usage on our phones. SO LAME
(23:08:13) LtAlexisWright: so anyway, I've gotta run because apparently you're supposed to vacuum before people come to clean your carpets. Did you know that? I didn't know that.
(23:08:22) CdrTKirr: Hm.
(23:08:32) LtAlexisWright: I thought vacuuming was sort of PART of cleaning the carpets but.
(23:08:42) DoctorTav: So you have to clean your carpet so it can be cleaned.
(23:08:43) CdrTKirr: Useful info.
(23:08:55) LtAlexisWright: I guess they just do the shampooing part
(23:09:12) VAdmBlackthorne: Riiiiiight.
(23:09:19) LtAlexisWright: so they want you to get all the grit and stuff out so they aren't dealing with mud or whatever?
(23:10:03) LtAlexisWright: So, I'm headed over to vacuum the shit out of my empty house prior to the carpet cleaning guy coming tomorrow.
(23:10:40) LtAlexisWright: Man, you guys listen to me bitch a lot, or at least pretend to. Thank you. <3 :D
(23:10:55) CdrTKirr: haha
(23:10:58) CdrTKirr: NP
(23:11:19) ColDougMcKnight: Good hunting!
(23:11:21) LtAlexisWright: You guys are really awesome. I look forward to this on Wednesdays. :)
(23:11:27) CdrTKirr: I'm off to sleep. Found out today I gotta go in earlier than usual. -_-
(23:11:35) CdrTKirr: I'm glad to hear that, Wright =)
(23:11:36) LtAlexisWright: Booo! Sleep well.
(23:11:38) DoctorTav: Me too! So glad to be home and able to sim with you guys.
(23:11:43) DoctorTav: Good night, everyone
