(21:26:41) CdrTKirr: Tav and I have an early morning.

(21:38:05) AlexisWright is now known as LtAlexisWright
(21:40:15) LtAlexisWright: Ready.
(21:40:52) DoctorTav: +TR+ Doctor Tav to Doctor Nolan. Ready in Sickbay
(21:41:11) DoctorTav: (MAGIC EDIT) Ready in the Holodeck.
(21:42:30) CdrTKirr: Nolan> Just give the word, Doctor.
(21:43:38) DoctorTav: +TR3+ Contact Transporter Room 2 and coordinate with them. Go ahead and make it happen, using pattern 2174.
(21:45:45) DoctorTav: +Kuari+ Lieutenant Kuari, this is Doctor Tav. Can you bring your friends this way? We are about to bring another Vrissk aboard.
(21:47:12) LtKuari: :: is following the two Vrissk at a distance, and in reply she calls out to them to get their attention, motioning them towards the scientists before heading that way ::

(21:50:23) DoctorTav: :: notes that the transport sequence has begun in the Holodeck, and equally notes the rapidly aproaching Vrissk, that they should be here and stopped by the time the transport is complete and this new Vrissk is whole ::
(21:51:28) SthoKa: :: stops, looks to Kuari, then Thossk ::
(21:52:37) ChieftainThossk: We should go back.
(21:52:43) LtKuari: :: stops, turns her head and calls to the two Vrissk again ::
(21:53:02) SthoKa: I follow you, Chieftain.
(21:53:59) ChieftainThossk: :: runs back toward Healer Tav ::
(21:54:18) SthoKa: :: moves swiftly with him ::
(21:55:29) LtKuari: :: reaches Tav first, stopping to rest and watch the materialization, ready to act but not too concerned judging by the state they tend to appear in ::
(21:57:06) CdrTKirr: (( I wonder what this glowy ice cube would look like in my tea...))
(21:57:54) ChieftainThossk: :: stops as another Vrissk shimmers in ahead ::
(21:58:37) SthoKa: :: looks on in wonder, thinking this is what she must have looked like when being essentially created ::
(21:58:44) DoctorTav: Roak> :: after fading into being facing away from Chieftain Thossk, shudders a bit, stumbles slightly, and alarmed, whips around nearly hitting Tav and Wright with his tail, only stopping when he sees Chieftain Thossk and Stho'Ka standing there, also in bodies. His expression is the Vrissk version of alarmed, amazed and confused, all at the same time. :: Chieftain... Thossk...
(21:59:15) LtKuari: :: almost jumps forward at Roak's quick movement ::
(21:59:40) DoctorTav: :: stumbles again slightly ::
(21:59:55) DoctorTav: Roak> :: stumbles again slightly ::
(22:00:15) ChieftainThossk: Roak! It is you!
(22:00:46) LtAlexisWright: Welcome, Roak.
(22:00:50) DoctorTav: :: begins scanning this new Vrissk, noting that he was able to remain standing and even seemed comfortable moving ::
(22:01:56) ChieftainThossk: How do you feel, brother?
(22:02:05) SthoKa: :: clicks a little in welcome ::
(22:02:12) DoctorTav: Roak> :: looks at the other two Vrissk :: Chieftain? And... Stho'Ka? You are too young. And what are these prey around us?
(22:03:17) ChieftainThossk: These are not prey. Stay your hunger, for these are the ones that have saved the Vrissk.
(22:03:18) DoctorTav: Roak> I feel... I feel... :: whips his head and tail around, this time hitting Tav :: My pain is gone. :: looks down at his left leg :: My wound is gone. And my skin is... young.
(22:03:48) DoctorTav: Roak> They are smaller than us. How did they save us?
(22:04:19) LtAlexisWright: Roak, please calm yourself. This place is small and your tail injures our Healer.
(22:04:40) DoctorTav: :: stands up :: Roak... Do you feel any soreness? Pain, like after hard work or a long hunt?
(22:05:24) ChieftainThossk: I do not fully understand it myself, Roak, but it is as I say.
(22:06:11) DoctorTav: Roak> :: turns slowly and addresses Tav, somewhat sniffing him :: I feel no pain. I feel... Not enough pain. I am an old Vrissk... but not now.
(22:06:45) ChieftainThossk: It is the same with me.
(22:07:41) LtAlexisWright: Your flesh was torn away when Vrissk was destroyed, but your spirits remained. We were able to remake your flesh, but only as it was when you were young.
(22:08:49) LtAlexisWright: All of you will be reunited with your youth as we reunite you with your flesh. It is a... limitation we were not able to overcome.
(22:08:57) DoctorTav: Roak> :: finally taking in where he is, his eyes dart around at the vegetation... and now notices Kuari. He keeps his eyes glued to her, somewhat warily even as he acknowledges Wright :: How... is that possible? I died. Now I am alive, and a whelp.
(22:09:06) ChieftainThossk: I do not complain.
(22:09:55) DoctorTav: Roak> What is this place? And what is that ? :: motions to Kuari ::
(22:10:08) LtKuari: :: cocks her head ::
(22:10:33) LtAlexisWright: Death of the flesh is not always death of the spirit, and what happened to your world unacceptable. When we saw that your spirits still remained, we made contact with Stho'Ka, and then Chieftain Thossk.
(22:10:34) DoctorTav: Roak> :: mirrors Kuari cocking her head ::
(22:11:15) VAdmBlackthorne: That is a Koo-aree.
(22:11:22) VAdmBlackthorne: (Er, Thossk)
(22:11:35) LtAlexisWright: This is a part of the home of my tribe, and that is Kuari. She comes from a tribe from a faraway land, but now runs with our tribe.
(22:13:14) DoctorTav: Roak> :: cocks his head further :: What is a Koo-aree? :: noting that the Chieftain seems to trust her, finally takes his visual lock off of Kuari and turns to Thossk, until hearing Wright :: What are you? How do you speak my tongue?
(22:13:15) ColDougMcKnight left the room (quit: Quit: ajax IRC Client).
(22:13:27) LtAlexisWright: I am called Wright. You've met Healer Tav, and now Kuari. We want to bring all of your people back to the flesh - you are only the third.
(22:13:46) ChieftainThossk: You can trust them Roak. Rite, Healer Tav, Koo-aree, all are friends.
(22:14:25) LtAlexisWright: The speaking of many tongues is one of the gifts that the people of my tribe have been given.
(22:14:34) DoctorTav: Roak> :: looks from Wright, to Tav, and back to Kuari :: Rite... Koo-aree, and a healer? You did this?
(22:15:20) LtAlexisWright: Did what? Returned you to flesh?
(22:15:27) DoctorTav: :: puts up his hands in a bit of protest :: I did, but only with the help of everyone here. And this place is designed to try to look like a place for you to be comfortable.
(22:16:44) DoctorTav: Roak> :: looks back to each of the crewmembers in turn, and then back to Thossk :: Will they make our land look like this?
(22:17:41) ChieftainThossk: Not our old land, no. We must leave it behind. It is dead.
(22:17:58) DoctorTav: Roak>But... We were dead.
(22:18:18) ChieftainThossk: Only mostly dead.
(22:18:21) ChieftainThossk: ( :V )
(22:18:23) LtAlexisWright: But we will lead you to a new land that is much like your old land and there the Vrissk can begin reborn.
(22:19:06) DoctorTav: Roak>Mostly? :: turns to Wright :: ...Rite, how will we get to this new land? How far is it?
(22:20:46) DoctorTav: Roak. I would like to see you move around. Would you mind walking a bit, and then if you would join Chieftain Thossk, Stho'Ka and Kuari in running around, that way I could make sure your body works properly, like theirs do.
(22:21:14) LtAlexisWright: My tribe will take you there. It does not matter how far, because you will never be able to return to this land. It is dead and we cannot save it.
(22:21:18) DoctorTav: Roak>With this young body, it would feel good to run. Is there any prey here I can hunt?
(22:22:32) DoctorTav: Roak> Rite... How will your tribe take us? Can we not walk?
(22:23:26) DoctorTav: :: takes a moment and pulls out his PADD, thinking about putting some rabbits out in the distance ::
(22:23:56) LtAlexisWright: No - it is far across a vast ocean where there is no prey and no breath.
(22:24:09) ChieftainThossk: :: looks back over his shoulder, smelling for prey as well ::
(22:25:19) LtKuari: :: wiggles her wings :: It is even too far for me to fly. You must trust Tav and Wright. They have given you life. Your lives are theirs.
(22:25:26) DoctorTav: Roak> Ocean? There are things across the ocean?
(22:25:52) DoctorTav: Roak>:: snaps his head around to Kuari :: You speak our language too?
(22:26:00) LtKuari: So far, that the death of everything cannot reach it.
(22:26:01) LtAlexisWright: More things than you could ever know.
(22:26:40) DoctorTav: Roak>:: sniffs Kuari again, this time not hiding the fact he is doing so ::
(22:26:48) LtAlexisWright: Remember, my tribe was given the gift for languages. Kuari, too.
(22:26:51) LtKuari: :: sniffs back ::
(22:27:04) DoctorTav: Roak> :: jumps back half a meter ::

(22:27:31) CdrTKirr: (( WB, how's dinner? =P ))
(22:28:06) LtAlexisWright: Stho'Ka, Kuari, can you take Roak to run? Thossk, can you stay and help us welcome another of your tribe?
(22:28:32) ChieftainThossk: I can.
(22:28:55) ColDougMcKnight: (Good!)
(22:29:05) LtAlexisWright: :: nods to Tav ::
(22:30:19) CdrTKirr: :: checks the insanely-expanded rooming requirements and sighs quietly :: +T'Kirr to McKnight+
(22:30:31) DoctorTav: :: nods back :: Thank you, Lieutenant. I am thinking of doing two at a time. Chieftain, do you think this would be wise?
(22:30:33) CdrTKirr: ((or whatever I just did there ))
(22:31:14) LtKuari: :: nods and gets out of the way ::
(22:31:41) ColDougMcKnight: :: By this time, has retired back to his office. :: +T'Kirr+ Go ahead, Commander.
(22:31:43) DoctorTav: Roak>:: begins by walking at first, but is soon chasing Kuari and Stho'Ka as they run ::
(22:33:38) ChieftainThossk: It should be fine.
(22:33:53) DoctorTav: +Nolan+ Tav to Nolan.
(22:35:59) CdrTKirr: +McKnight+ Colonel, we'll soon begin materializing Vrissk more quickly, and we'll need accomodations. I've allotted Holodecks Two through Five, several storage areas, and part of the Cargo Bay as temporary quarters for the Vrissk. I've sent you the details.
(22:36:34) CdrTKirr: Nolan> Go ahead.
(22:37:10) DoctorTav: +Nolan+ We are ready to being beaming in multiples. Are you comfortable bringing two at a time aboard, based on our calculations?
(22:37:53) CdrTKirr: Nolan> Based on our calculations, yes.
(22:38:49) LtAlexisWright: Chieftain Thossk... :: reaches for something hidden in a dark corner :: It would be my honor to return this spear to you to help prove to your people that you truly are flesh again. :: holds it out ceremonially for him to take ::
(22:39:37) ChieftainThossk: No Rite. That is my gift to you. Consider it a thank-you.
(22:39:46) DoctorTav: +Nolan+ Very good. Pick two signatures from the surface, and beam them to the holodeck coordinates... But first, could you turn their bodies around as they beam in to face the other way?
(22:40:13) ColDougMcKnight: +T'Kirr+ Alright. I'll assign guards and begin restricting access to those areas. Just in case. Exactly what story are we giving these people to explain the exodus? Or are we just being non-technical but up front about it all?
(22:40:26) LtAlexisWright: Then please allow me to lend it to you for a short while, to reassure your people.
(22:40:52) ChieftainThossk: :: nods :: As you wish. :: Takes the spear and stands proudly :::
(22:41:17) CdrTKirr: Nolan> :: chuckles :: Would you like me to add a little wax to their scales to shine their entrance up a little, too? I'm sure I can manage.
(22:41:18) LtAlexisWright: :: smiles, having fulfilled her promise to place it back into his hands herself ::
(22:41:55) DoctorTav: +Nolan+ Thank you, Doctor. Tav out, and standing by.
(22:42:46) CdrTKirr: Nolan> :: shakes his head and picks two signatures from Thossk's tribe ::
(22:45:38) LtAlexisWright: :: shuffles her feet impatiently ::
(22:45:51) CdrTKirr: +McKnight+ Standard protocol for Tribal first contact should be sufficient. No volunteered information. If they have questions, have them ask for Doctor Tav or Lieutenant Wright through Chieftain Thossk.
(22:47:48) DoctorTav: :: turns to Thossk as they wait for the next couple :: Chieftain, how many Vrissk could we bring here in their new bodies, or how many would you be able to help recover, if we made them appear facing you?
(22:48:21) CdrTKirr: (( Next sim will be fast-forwarded past all transports to Atlantis and Discovery, so wrap up in the next ten minutes accordingly! ))
(22:48:36) LtAlexisWright: (( oh thank god ))
(22:48:41) DoctorTav: Or in other words, are there any from your tribe that we should bring here by themselves?
(22:48:53) ColDougMcKnight: :: Wasn't aware any protocol existed for tribal first contact, and silently calls up a search on the ship's computer. :: +T'Kirr+ You got it. I'll keep a pair of marines stationed inside all the designated enclosures, then. Pretty sure I'd have to volunteer quite a bit to expain a comm panel.
(22:49:10) ChieftainThossk: My presence should calm any number of them. Unless you bring back Frack. He is a *UT failure*.
(22:49:52) LtAlexisWright: I assume that means he is a bad person? Your words were not known to me.
(22:49:54) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> The Discovery arrives out of a quantum slipstream flight!
(22:50:33) ChieftainThossk: Yes, you can say that. I will keep him under control though.
(22:50:36) DoctorTav: :: nods :: What can you tell me about Frack? I need to know who he is so we can bring him here alone, so you can deal with him.
(22:51:29) CdrTKirr: :: perks an eyebrow, pondering not for the first time the differences between marines and Starfleet, then notices Discovery's approach ::
(22:52:54) ChieftainThossk: Hm. I do not know how to describe him to you.
(22:53:16) ChieftainThossk: It is no matter. If he causes trouble, I will have no issue controlling him in this body.
(22:53:46) VAdmBlackthorne: :: walks out onto the bridge from the RR, having seen Discovery warp in out the window ::
(22:53:51) DoctorTav: :: nods :: Very good. Soon, I plan on bringing them here ten at a time.
(22:54:47) CdrTKirr: (( cool so we'll only be in orbit for eight months instead of eighty! ))
(22:55:58) ChieftainThossk: :: nods :: All will be well.
(22:56:02) LtKuari: :: plays chase with the best of them ::
(22:58:07) CdrTKirr: Regular transports are underway. I can have the updated medical files and transporter procedures sent to Discovery when you're ready.
(22:58:55) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods :: Go ahead. There's lots of work to do.
(22:59:09) CdrTKirr: I assume you'll want to see who can transport the most.
(22:59:56) CdrTKirr: Think she can keep up with us?
(23:00:31) ColDougMcKnight: :: Looks up at the feed from tactical, chirping the alarm at the approach of another ship. His frown dies when he notes it's a friendly, then resurrects itself as he sees which ship, and the method of its arrival.
