Conversation with #ussatlantis at Wed May 8 21:01:20 2013 on (irc)

(21:01:20) The topic for #ussatlantis is: Stho'Ka materializes in Sickbay. Everyone of importance and capable pretty much converges there, out of necessity or even curiousity, including Lt. Kuari.

(21:01:26) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya
(21:01:33) LtLedaHarper: Yooooo
(21:04:48) CdrTKirr: Hey
(21:04:54) VAdmBlackthorne: One more week!
(21:05:35) LtLedaHarper: Oh, film premiere patience?
(21:05:49) VAdmBlackthorne: NEW STAR TREK :D
(21:06:34) CdrTKirr: Yah ^_^
(21:06:48) LtLedaHarper: I'm looking forward to it.
(21:06:56) LtLedaHarper: I don't know much about it yet, which is probably just as well
(21:07:19) CdrTKirr: You're talking to Mr. Idontwatchpreviews
(21:07:26) LtLedaHarper: Noticed.
(21:07:32) VAdmBlackthorne: I saw one by accident. :V
(21:07:35) VAdmBlackthorne: Super Bowl
(21:07:45) CdrTKirr: Nothing made you stare at the screen
(21:07:55) VAdmBlackthorne: Star Trek being on the screen made that happen.
(21:08:39) LtLedaHarper: Addict.
(21:09:31) VAdmBlackthorne: Damn good thing, innit?
(21:09:59) LtLedaHarper: Oh, I approve.
(21:10:06) DoctorTav [] entered the room.
(21:10:06) CdrTKirr: lol
(21:10:12) DoctorTav: Ahoy!
(21:10:15) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya doc
(21:10:51) LtLedaHarper: Anyway, you saw it long enough ago that I'm sure it's nowhere really near the actual thing. Concept art essentially.
(21:12:53) CdrTKirr: True. He hasn't seen the second. =P
(21:13:49) LtAlexisWright [] entered the room.
(21:14:01) LtAlexisWright: Sorry everyone!
(21:14:05) LtLedaHarper: Evening Wright!
(21:14:20) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya
(21:15:03) LtAlexisWright: I went to log in and my laptop was like "herp derp I'm crashing like really really slowly and painfully"
(21:15:28) ColDougMcKnight [] entered the room.
(21:15:42) LtLedaHarper: Hate those. Can't really just shut the buggers off, either.
(21:15:50) ColDougMcKnight: Sorry! I was just adding some cheese to some spaghetti.
(21:16:20) VAdmBlackthorne: Hello!
(21:16:34) LtLedaHarper: mmm. Cheese.
(21:17:14) CdrTKirr: There's peeps =)
(21:17:19) ChieftainThossk [] entered the room.
(21:17:25) VAdmBlackthorne: Woooohooooo!
(21:17:45) LtAlexisWright: :: is a marshmallow treat of questionable quality ::
(21:18:24) DoctorTav: No marshmallows for me
(21:19:04) SthoKa [] entered the room.
(21:19:41) CdrTKirr: All right, let's get started.
(21:20:29) VAdmBlackthorne: :: produces an ordinary bosun's whistle :: TWEEET!
(21:21:02) DoctorTav: :: AA ::
(21:21:03) VAdmBlackthorne: :: then throws that away, replacing it with the Ancient Whistle of Earsplitting DOOOM +12 :: TWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!
(21:21:11) DoctorTav: :: falls on his back, still AA ::
(21:21:54) LtAlexisWright: :: AA with noise-cancelling headphones on ::
(21:22:21) CdrTKirr: Ahem.
(21:22:54) CdrTKirr: I guess others can catch up later.
(21:22:58) CdrTKirr has changed the topic to: People are assembling to beam down to Vrissk to resurrect Thossk. You know who you are.
(21:23:01) CdrTKirr: Questions?
(21:23:38) LtAlexisWright: Do people really like me, or is it all an illusion?
(21:23:47) CdrTKirr: I refuse to answer.

(21:24:28) LtAlexisWright: :: watches S'thoKa as the TL descends ::
(21:26:04) SthoKa: :: is eager to get to Thossk ::
(21:26:10) DoctorTav: :: is in Transporter Room 5, making final adjustments to Thossk's body, seeing if he can't make Thossk's muscles feel a bit more used once they are wrapped around him ::
(21:26:20) LtAlexisWright: :: S'thoKa apparently does nothing noteworthy, so leads the way toward the transporter room once the TL doors open ::
(21:26:48) VAdmBlackthorne: :: returning to the bridge ::
(21:27:09) SthoKa: :: looks back at the TL in wonder before tagging after Wright ::
(21:27:23) LtAlexisWright: We're going to the room where our healer is waiting. Before we enter, let me explain something...
(21:28:06) CdrTKirr: :: walks with Blackthorne, thinking their time at Vrissk could finally be coming to a close ::
(21:29:22) LtAlexisWright: When whatever happened to your world happened, your flesh was torn from you. Our healers have worked out a way to rebuild your flesh, and then lead your spirit back to it.
(21:30:56) LtAlexisWright: So when this is happening, you will see Thossk's flesh with no spirit at first, and then his spirit will rejoin and he will become whole. I just wanted you to know what to expect. Yes?
(21:31:47) LtAlexisWright: If you are ready, then we can enter.
(21:32:00) SthoKa: :: looks down at Wright :: I understand this is to happen, even though I don't understand how.
(21:32:17) VAdmBlackthorne: We have scouted a new home for them? :: as they walk out onto the bridge, he nods at Harper, who vacates the center seat ::
(21:33:03) LtAlexisWright: To tell you the truth, I'm not really sure either... I'm just glad that it works. Let's go in. :: doors swish open ::
(21:33:10) DoctorTav: :: hears the doors opening, and turns to find Wright and Stho'Ka :: Ah, you are just in time.
(21:33:57) LtAlexisWright: What would you like for us to do, Doctor?
(21:34:14) DoctorTav: :: turns to Stho'Ka :: Would you care to be in the dome, on the planet when Chieftain Thossk is put into his body?
(21:35:07) ColDougMcKnight: :: Standing off in one corner, because why not? He nods to a second marine across the room, and both subtly ready their rifles. ::
(21:35:11) LtAlexisWright: :: makes meaningful looks at Tav, trying to say that we never left the planet wish her eyes ::
(21:35:19) LtAlexisWright: :: with ::
(21:35:25) CdrTKirr: There are possibilities. Wright is working with the data collected, making sure what information we're still gathering from the...materialization process...validates our choices.
(21:35:43) CdrTKirr: :: instead of moving towards her own seat, heads towards Science ::
(21:37:40) SthoKa: On the...planet. Wherever this is that Thossk is.
(21:38:12) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sits in his chair and picks up the PADD that was left on the arm, reading the updates ::
(21:39:23) DoctorTav: :: nods :: Very well. Step onto the pad, as you were the moment you arrived here.
(21:39:30) LtAlexisWright: :: moves toward the transport pad :: our people have a way of crossing distances very swiftly, and that is how we will get to where Thossk will rejoin his flesh. Come stand here with me.
(21:40:06) CdrTKirr: :: peers at the awaiting assembly of data at Science before getting to work on it :: The information has been updated. I'm running it through the possible locations to make sure it's compatible.
(21:40:35) DoctorTav: Now that you are more aware of how you feel, past the soreness, the feeling of this device may be... interesting.
(21:40:35) SthoKa: :: steps into the Transporter pad ::
(21:41:25) LtAlexisWright: It kind of tingles a little bit, but it's very brief and I'll be with you. You may want to close your eyes so you are less disoriented by the traveling.
(21:41:25) VAdmBlackthorne: Carry on.
(21:42:06) LtAlexisWright: :: squares her shoulders and closes her own eyes as encouragement ::
(21:42:13) SthoKa: :: closes her eyes :: I am strong.
(21:42:40) LtAlexisWright: We are ready, Healer Tav.
(21:43:08) DoctorTav: :: stores Thossk's pattern for more work and prepares the Transporter quickly :: Energizing in 5... 4... 3... 2... 1...
(21:44:00) LtAlexisWright: :: feels tingly for a moment, then senses the change in environment and opens her eyes :: We are here.
(21:44:25) DoctorTav: :: upon the pad being cleared, returns Thossk's pattern for a little more tinkering :: Oh, yeah, the equilibrium. :: makes some changes :: That should do it.
(21:44:38) SthoKa: :: immediately feels home again and looks around animatedly for Thossk ::
(21:45:01) ChieftainThossk: :: saw them beam in :: Stho'Ka!
(21:45:43) LtAlexisWright: Chieftain Thossk! Stho'Ka is one with her flesh again!
(21:46:14) ColDougMcKnight: Okay, so we can be pretty comfortable saying the process works at this point yeah?
(21:46:47) DoctorTav: :: energizes the coils and Chieftain Thossk's lifeless body stands on the pad in perfect balance. Tav walks around the console to the pad and pulls out his Tricorder, making note of the changes he made to the pattern after Stho'Ka's experience.
(21:47:07) ChieftainThossk: This is...
(21:47:13) ChieftainThossk: :: has no words ::
(21:47:20) LtAlexisWright: Stho'Ka, can you show him?
(21:48:21) LtAlexisWright: :: looks over at Stho'Ka to make sure she's okay ::
(21:48:45) SthoKa: :: rushes to Thossk, showing off her body :: I am whole again! You will be, too!
(21:48:57) SthoKa: (( Sorry my bro walked in, haven't seen him all day ))
(21:49:03) DoctorTav: :: is happy with the results of the changes and is ready to beam the body down to the surface. :: +Wright+ Sickb... Transporter Room Five to Lieutenant Wright.
(21:49:26) LtAlexisWright: Yes, we are ready to reunite you with your flesh. Are you ready?
(21:49:56) ChieftainThossk: Yes, it must work, look at you! Yes, make me one again!
(21:49:57) LtAlexisWright: +Tav+ Stand by, TR5.
(21:49:59) CdrTKirr: :: glaces over to Blackthorne before returning her eyes to her screen, still tapping :: There are a lot of Vrissk to be processed.
(21:50:12) CdrTKirr: ((McKnight is speaking to whom? ))
(21:50:26) LtAlexisWright: Very well. A moment please.
(21:50:34) ColDougMcKnight: (Tav. He's in the transporter room.)
(21:50:35) LtAlexisWright: +Tav+ Go ahead, TR5.
(21:50:49) VAdmBlackthorne: Well, I imagine it will get a little faster.
(21:51:04) DoctorTav: +Wright+ Once Chieftain Thossk is in the dome, could you scan him with your Tricorder? I am tapped into it, and that will give me his coordinates so I can beam his body around him.
(21:51:32) CdrTKirr: Have you considered requesting a colony vessel to assist?
(21:51:50) CdrTKirr: Or do you intend for Atlantis to stay?
(21:51:59) VAdmBlackthorne: We're weeks out, and the only other vessel with quantum slipstream is Discovery.
(21:52:06) LtAlexisWright: +Tav+ Acknowledged. Stand by while we get into position.
(21:52:13) VAdmBlackthorne: Though, she could be a big help...
(21:53:05) SthoKa: :: bounces subtly from one foot to the other, watching Thossk ::
(21:53:07) LtAlexisWright: :: turns back to the Vrissk :: We must return to the dome to perform the healing. Follow me, please?
(21:53:22) ChieftainThossk: As you say. :: follows Rite ::
(21:54:14) LtAlexisWright: :: positions him in the center of the dome :: Please remain very still until the healing is complete. Yes?
(21:54:36) LtAlexisWright: :: scans him thoroughly with her tricorder ::
(21:55:22) ChieftainThossk: Yes. :: stands still ::
(21:55:33) DoctorTav: :: aligns the transporter to the coordinates provided by Wright's Tricorder and charges the coils for transport :: +Wright+ Thank you Lieutenant Wright. Could you make sure the Chieftain is ready? I don't know what this process feels like. Hopefully better than it was for Stho'Ka.
(21:56:45) LtAlexisWright: Okay. One last thing. Your flesh has been separated from your spirit, and the joining may be uncomfortable or painful at first. Just tell me everything that you are experiencing and we will make adjustments.
(21:57:15) ChieftainThossk: I will do so, Rite.
(21:57:16) LtAlexisWright: As soon as you are ready, we will begin.
(21:57:23) ChieftainThossk: I am ready.
(21:57:25) SthoKa: :: crouches down :: You are strong enough!
(21:58:07) CdrTKirr: :: checks another panel :: They're in the dome.
(21:58:25) LtAlexisWright: +Tav+ Healer Tav, the Chieftain is prepared for the joining to begin. My comlink is open for you to hear his immediate feedback.
(21:58:35) DoctorTav: +Wright+ Alright. Here we go. :: Energizes, waits for the Transporter system to reset, sets the Transporter to a new location right next to Thossk, and autostarts the Transport program. With that, he grabs his medkit off the top of the console and runs for the pad :: Computer, energize!
(21:59:07) ChieftainThossk: :: closes his eyes as a strange feeling starts to take over his being ::
(22:00:13) ChieftainThossk: :: opens them again as the feeling fades, and then gasps for air as his very real lungs start working again ::
(22:00:49) ChieftainThossk: :: well, working for him at least ::
(22:00:51) LtAlexisWright: :: watches with a mixture of anxiety and excitement :: Slowly, Chieftain! Breathe slowly.
(22:01:12) ChieftainThossk: :: collapses to the ground, finding purchase on all fours ::
(22:02:04) LtAlexisWright: Let your mind and body remember how to work together. Are you in pain?
(22:03:12) ChieftainThossk: Yes. :: croaks :: But it is manageable.
(22:03:21) SthoKa: :: comes close, feeling anxiety at having these aliens closer to Thossk than she, but resists the urge to push them away as she attempts to look over their shoulders ::
(22:03:27) DoctorTav: :: appears next to Chieftain Thossk in the Transporter beam. Almost before the process is complete, he has his Tricorder out, as well as a hypospray at the ready just in case anything is needed :: Tav scans the Vrissk and notes the places in his genome where changes had been made from Stho'Ka ::
(22:04:05) LtAlexisWright: Can you describe where the pain is? :: notes Stho'Ka anxiously peering over her shoulder and steps back, allowing Stho'Ka to be near to her Chieftain ::
(22:04:23) SthoKa: Thossk...I am here. Be strong. The pain will lessen.
(22:04:24) DoctorTav: :: notices Stho'Ka's concern, and happy that everything has gone well, motions her over :: It's okay. You can come to his assistance now. He is safe.
(22:04:28) ChieftainThossk: It is all over. But it is fading.
(22:04:40) ChieftainThossk: :: sets his eyes and stands upright ::
(22:05:09) LtAlexisWright: Good! Stho'Ka found it helpful to stretch her muscles. Can you show him, Stho'Ka?
(22:05:43) SthoKa: :: having crouched, stands with Thossk, putting a claw to his shoulder :: I can feel you...
(22:06:07) DoctorTav: :: walks over to Wright :: Actually, I think it would be best for him to have some time in the Holodeck as well, where he can move around more than :: looks at their surroundings :: in this dome.
(22:06:22) ChieftainThossk: And I you. :: stretches a bit ::
(22:07:12) SthoKa: :: steps away to give Thossk room :: Vrissk survive!
(22:07:56) DoctorTav: :: succumbs to a grin at Stho'Ka's declaration ::
(22:07:59) ChieftainThossk: :: laughs a bit, which sounds more like a growl to the non-Vrissk ::
(22:08:16) LtAlexisWright: :: nods at Tav :: I agree. :: to Stho'Ka:: When you think the time is right, we can take you and the Chieftain back to the place where you can run and jump and move. Kuari is still waiting for you there.
(22:09:06) LtAlexisWright: And then you can help us bring out even more Vrissk and do the joining with them as well. You wish to do this?
(22:09:15) SthoKa: :: peers around at their dead world :: I agree, but it is the will of Thossk. :: turns to him :: The place they speak of is alive. We should go.
(22:09:34) ChieftainThossk: In this matter, I defer to experience.
(22:10:09) ColDougMcKnight: :: Nods to the other marine, patched in to the away team's comm systems and listening in on the TR console. :: It works. Start prepping cargo bay three. I'll alert engineering to send teams down and make sure the transporters there are properly configured to start getting this show on the road a little faster.
(22:10:11) LtKuari [] entered the room.
(22:10:30) LtAlexisWright: When you are both comfortable in your joining, we will bring you back here to find others. But first you must move, jump, eat, drink.
(22:10:45) VAdmBlackthorne: :: drafts some orders and hands the PADD to Harper :: Get this to Discovery, Commander.
(22:10:59) VAdmBlackthorne: Harper> Aye sir. :: codes and transmits the message ::
(22:11:09) LtAlexisWright: Are you ready to go now?
(22:11:33) ColDougMcKnight: :: Turns to the transporter tech before he exits. :: You can relay that to the Doc when he gets back. Cargo bay 2.
(22:11:35) DoctorTav: :: takes a moment while everyone is talking to make a note on his PADD, that it would be a good idea to have the bodies move around a bit before they are placed onto the Vrissk electrical patterns ::
(22:11:40) CdrTKirr: :: notes Blackthorne's orders approvingly, continuing to work at Science ::
(22:12:45) ChieftainThossk: :: reaches down and drags his claws through the lifeless dirt ::
(22:14:46) ChieftainThossk: It is good to feel anything again. Your claw on my shoulder. Even the dead ground! It has been an eternity in that gray waste, devoid of sensation.
(22:14:50) LtAlexisWright: :: looks at Stho'Ka and Thossk in turn, waiting for them to be ready ::
(22:15:19) SthoKa: But they cannot make our world live again.
(22:15:59) ChieftainThossk: It is enough that the Vrissk live. We will survive.
(22:16:21) LtAlexisWright: :: shakes her head :: No. That is beyond our powers. But we can bring you all to another land on the other side of a vast ocean and there you can begin again.
(22:16:31) SthoKa: :: cocks her head in agreement ::
(22:17:10) ChieftainThossk: We will begin anew.
(22:17:19) LtAlexisWright: Reborn.
(22:18:04) SthoKa: We go.
(22:18:13) ChieftainThossk: Yes, sister. We go.
(22:18:19) ChieftainThossk: :: turns to Rite ::
(22:18:37) LtAlexisWright: :: turns to Thossk ::
(22:18:50) ChieftainThossk: Take me to this place.
(22:19:48) DoctorTav: Before we go... :: turns to the two Vrissk, and interchangeably with Wright :: I have something I want to try. Since we have not had any contact with other Vrissk... I was thinking it might be a better idea to return them to their bodies, but have their bodies where you will be. Would that be acceptable to you?
(22:20:20) LtAlexisWright: We still search for this place, but have made a temporary place that could be similar. I want to know if it seems correct to you.
(22:21:46) ChieftainThossk: I would first see this temporary place.
(22:21:50) SthoKa: The place I have been? With Kuari?
(22:23:05) LtAlexisWright: :: nods at Stho'Ka :: Yes. :: to the Chieftain :: I want you to tell me if this temporary place seems right to you. Too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry, too many plants, not enough plants, everything you can tell me will help me find the right place for you.
(22:23:49) LtAlexisWright: Shall we go now, so you can see what I mean?
(22:23:55) ChieftainThossk: :: nods :: Yes.
(22:25:21) LtAlexisWright: +TR5+ Four to transport to the temporary place. Lt. Kuari awaits us there. :: hopes like heck the tech knows what she means ::
(22:26:56) CdrTKirr: Tech> :: doesn't, but finds Kuari and sends them there ::
(22:27:48) DoctorTav: :: appears with the others in Holodeck 3, and sees Kuari off in the distance ::
(22:27:48) LtKuari: :: perks up, noticing the transporter beams ::
(22:28:23) LtAlexisWright: Stho'Ka, would you like to introduce Kuari to Thossk?
(22:28:53) ChieftainThossk: :: looks around ::
(22:29:22) SthoKa: :: brightens in the seemingly living world and notices Kuari approaching ::
(22:31:04) ChieftainThossk: I... this is amazing.
(22:31:56) LtAlexisWright: Kuari, this is Chieftain Thossk, the leader of Stho'Ka's ... tribe.
(22:32:43) ChieftainThossk: Well met, Koo-aree.
(22:33:12) ChieftainThossk: :: wonders what in the name of the Old Ones Koo-aree is ::
(22:34:07) LtKuari: :: dips her head to Thossk :: Chieftain, an honor to meet you. Stho'Ka does well here. I'm sure you will, too.
(22:34:32) ChieftainThossk: What... are you?
(22:35:11) LtAlexisWright: Kuari comes from a faraway land, but now belongs to our tribe.
(22:35:14) LtKuari: :: pulls her ears back reflexively, then eyes Wright for help, wary of what she should say ::
(22:36:00) ChieftainThossk: Why should I expect anything else from those who can perform such miracles? :: laughs ::
(22:36:13) SthoKa: :: laughs with him ::
(22:36:35) LtAlexisWright: She is also my very good friend, so even if her ways seems different to you please know that she means no harm.
(22:37:07) ChieftainThossk: Any friend of Rite is a friend to the Vrissk.
(22:37:25) LtKuari: :: shares a knowing look with Stho'Ka :: No harm. Friend!
(22:37:42) LtKuari: :: attempts to mimic the Vrissk laugh ::
(22:38:05) LtAlexisWright: :: fails to stifle a giggle ::
(22:39:49) LtKuari: :: backs up and looks to the distance from where she came :: You are free here. Move as you wish. The healer insists!
(22:40:01) ChieftainThossk: :: looks about and stretches again ::
(22:40:02) DoctorTav: :: nods at Kuari's words ::
(22:40:16) LtAlexisWright: So Chieftain, does a world like this seem right to you? As Kuari says, you are free to explore.
(22:40:30) ChieftainThossk: I do have a strange feeling, now that I think of it.
(22:41:10) LtAlexisWright: Can you tell me what feels strange?
(22:42:06) ChieftainThossk: :: laughs heartily :: I feel young again.
(22:42:19) LtAlexisWright: That's good!
(22:42:42) ChieftainThossk: This body is much less weathered than I once was.
(22:43:01) DoctorTav: Ah, yes. That makes sense. It is a brand new body.
(22:43:21) ChieftainThossk: Even my voice sounds a little different, to my own ears. Like it once did, perhaps.
(22:43:29) SthoKa: :: cocks her head, pondering Thossk's words ::
(22:44:22) LtAlexisWright: Go, then! Run, jump, climb, explore, and then tell me if a place like this could be home to the Vrissk or if it is not right. Test out everything about your bodies, even your voices, and tell us if that is different too.
(22:44:34) DoctorTav: Chieftain, I do not know your ages, and even if I did... the computer could only see their bodies as adults. Meaning, any injuries or... weathering... would not be something I knew. Imagine that you are much younger, because in reality, you are.
(22:44:57) DoctorTav: (MAGIC EDIT: "their bodies" should be "your bodies"
(22:45:04) SthoKa: Old soul. New body.
(22:45:26) ChieftainThossk: Do not worry, Healer. It is a blessing! To be young with the knowledge of the old!
(22:45:26) DoctorTav: :: nods :: Yes, our people dream of being able to do that.
(22:45:35) LtAlexisWright: :: nods at Stho'Ka :: Your body, just reborn anew.
(22:45:49) SthoKa: :: trots off ::
(22:46:41) ChieftainThossk: Perhaps I could even keep up with our swiftest hunter. :: looks after Stho'Ka ::
(22:47:01) LtAlexisWright: Chase! :: grins ::
(22:47:33) DoctorTav: :: turns to Wright :: So... We really should find out a few things. I think I have what I need to beam their energy signatures into their bodies, which means I can make them appear in the Holodeck. The only problem is, we don't know if the tribes had any... factions. If we were to put two warring tribes here together, that could be very, very bad. we should ask them about that.
(22:48:06) DoctorTav: Also, it would be much easier for me, and easier on the Vrissk as they are being transported, if they knew what was going on.
(22:48:12) ChieftainThossk: :: darts off after her ::
(22:48:38) SthoKa: :: notices, runs faster ::
(22:49:00) LtAlexisWright: :: turns to Tav :: Hmm, that's a good point. I think we should work on strictly this tribe first. Perhaps the Chieftain can summon the spirits to come to the dome, and they can explain about the joining?
(22:49:37) LtAlexisWright: And then from there, we can learn about neighboring tribes and then their neighbors and then their neighbors.
(22:49:47) DoctorTav: :: nods :: That would be a good idea. I wonder if their tribe has a call, just to get things started. I wonder what their tribemates will think of seeing them in bodies?
(22:49:47) LtKuari: :: follows at a distance to keep an eye on them ::
(22:50:24) CdrTKirr: (( Ten minutes ))
(22:50:26) ChieftainThossk: :: runs as he once could, many summers ago ::
(22:50:30) DoctorTav: The other thing I am going to do to speed their recovery is exercise the bodies for about ten minutes before the procedure.
(22:50:54) LtAlexisWright: We'll have to rejoin as many of them as we can, even if there are warring factions, otherwise we would be interfering with the development of their species even more than we already have. We can always place their villages in appropriate proximity so it is as though little has changed. And we have more holodecks.
(22:51:20) DoctorTav: This is true. And I like your thinking.
(22:52:25) LtAlexisWright: But each tribe must know of other tribes either from warring or trading, and then those will know of others, and those will know of others, and in this way we can catch 'em all.
(22:52:59) DoctorTav: Agreed. So, how long do you think we should give them before asking about all this?
(22:53:03) CdrTKirr: (( I get the one that breathes fire ))
(22:53:36) ChieftainThossk: ((PokeVrissk?)
(22:54:16) LtAlexisWright: Well, I need to get environmental feedback from the chieftain and a rough idea of how many tribes we're talking about so I can make the search parameters a lot more specific, so... whenever he's ready to come back and give me that feedback, I imagine.
(22:54:35) LtAlexisWright: (( +2 points for successful Pokemon reference during sim ))
(22:55:25) DoctorTav: I get the feeling this will be a very long process. But we will get it done. Do you remember how many signatures we had seen on the planet?
(22:55:53) VAdmBlackthorne: Harper> Admiral, Discovery acknowledges your orders and is responding.
(22:55:58) LtAlexisWright: Triple digits...? :: hopeful look ::
(22:56:07) VAdmBlackthorne: Excellent. T'Kirr, inform our team that they'll have help.
(22:56:32) DoctorTav: Well, that's not too many. Though, with them all being in younger bodies, we may see a population explosion.
(22:56:41) CdrTKirr: +Wright+ T'Kirr to Wright.
(22:56:57) LtAlexisWright: +T'Kirr+ Wright here.
(22:57:04) LtAlexisWright: (( Wright now... ))
(22:58:05) CdrTKirr: +Wright+ Discovery is on its way to assist in our colonization process. This information should prove helpful to you.
(22:58:23) CdrTKirr: (( Two minutes ))
(22:58:26) VAdmBlackthorne: ((Bet she's never heard THAT joke before))
(22:58:51) CdrTKirr: (( Just you wait ))
(22:59:30) LtAlexisWright: :: grins at Tav :: +T'Kirr+ That's great news! Do we have an ETA? And do we happen to have a rough count of signatures we're seeing on the planet?
(22:59:59) CdrTKirr: PAUSE SIM

(23:00:08) DoctorTav: :: pauses ::
(23:00:17) CdrTKirr: That's me, avoiding the difficult questions.
(23:00:34) CdrTKirr: But...I'll have an answer in about...two weeks.
(23:00:51) LtAlexisWright: fair enough.
(23:01:01) VAdmBlackthorne: Yes! No sim next week because of NEW STAR TREK!
(23:01:09) DoctorTav: Wow. That was an intense Sim
(23:01:35) LtAlexisWright: Was great tonight, but I gotta bail, I have like a bunch of stuff to do tonight and not much time left. Bye! <3
(23:01:47) LtAlexisWright left the room (quit: Quit: ajax IRC Client).
(23:01:47) DoctorTav: Have a good night!
(23:01:48) CdrTKirr: Yeah, ditto, but for a different reason.
(23:01:51) CdrTKirr: Night ll
(23:01:52) CdrTKirr: lol
(23:01:59) CdrTKirr: Good to see you, Harper
(23:02:12) CdrTKirr: And sorry there wasn't much for you to do, McKnight, but glad you were here =)
