(20:59:47) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya
(21:00:31) LtAlexisWright: Hihi
(21:00:40) CdrTKirr: Hey
(21:00:42) LtAlexisWright: I'm here but running around the house
(21:01:02) CdrTKirr: I'm ratting Tav out, he ran to the store for Coke, I'm like SIM STARTS IN 4 MINS OMG
(21:01:21) CdrTKirr: He needed something to put his rum in =/
(21:01:23) VAdmBlackthorne: :stare:
(21:01:43) ColDougMcKnight [Mibbit@v-30-997-94-44.hsd7.vt.comcast.net] entered the room.
(21:01:47) ColDougMcKnight: Hey.
(21:01:50) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya
(21:02:19) CdrTKirr: Along with :stare: is :eyetwitch:
(21:02:48) VAdmBlackthorne: That was usually in response to the warp core going :toot:
(21:05:44) CdrTKirr: Good to see you all =)
(21:05:51) VAdmBlackthorne: Likewise!
(21:06:33) CdrTKirr: How's everyone doing?
(21:06:51) VAdmBlackthorne: I'm on call and not in Hawaii, which is not as good as not on call and in Hawaii.
(21:06:59) CdrTKirr: Yeah
(21:08:39) VAdmBlackthorne: But overall, just fine. You?
(21:08:50) CdrTKirr: Yeah, overall
(21:09:04) CdrTKirr: Bryan made his first sale a few days ago
(21:10:10) VAdmBlackthorne: Cool!
(21:10:14) LtAlexisWright: I'm okay, some things are weird but I'm fervently hoping they'll work out.
(21:10:20) LtAlexisWright: and congrats!
(21:10:49) CdrTKirr: Thanks, and I hope for your sake, too
(21:11:05) CdrTKirr: Right now I'm playing with mermaids on my phone -_-
(21:11:09) LtAlexisWright: thanks <3
(21:11:38) CdrTKirr: Wright do you have iPhone?
(21:11:44) ColDougMcKnight: After this, my next day off isn't for over a week, so that's gonna be a little lame. But basically fine as well.
(21:12:03) CdrTKirr: I know your pain...actually I'm giving away a shift next week
(21:12:14) CdrTKirr: Don't wanna work that much >_<
(21:12:16) LtAlexisWright: Nope, droid
(21:13:16) CdrTKirr: Okay nm
(21:13:24) CdrTKirr: Want someone to play mermaids with -_-
(21:13:48) CdrTKirr: I'll make sure to tell Tav we're waiting on him.
(21:14:00) VAdmBlackthorne: Mmmmmhmmmmm
(21:14:25) CdrTKirr: Or rather we WERE waiting on him, and decided to start without him.
(21:16:18) LtAlexisWright: ps
(21:16:46) LtAlexisWright: my therapist says I have to come in next week on Wednesday again >_< which means I won't get home until 6:30 at best
(21:17:19) CdrTKirr: Tell your therapist it's overlapping other therapy
(21:17:35) VAdmBlackthorne: And that you're in charge, not the other way around.
(21:17:40) VAdmBlackthorne: Who pays whom?
(21:17:54) LtAlexisWright: it was the only opening he had next week outside of work hours.
(21:18:09) CdrTKirr: How...*convenient*
(21:18:11) LtAlexisWright: I could have been all like "no" but I really need to go. :(
(21:18:58) CdrTKirr: I'm sorry =/
(21:19:05) VAdmBlackthorne: Ugh.
(21:19:19) CdrTKirr: Bryan gets home and takes a nap so he can stay up for sim 'cause he gets up really early
(21:19:44) CdrTKirr: ...and then goes to the store when sim starts
(21:20:11) CdrTKirr: DoctorTav loses faction with CdrTKirr!
(21:20:18) LtAlexisWright: a few weeks ago Aaron was all like "btw I don't know if I'm in love with you and I'm seriously considering ending our marriage" so he's in therapy and I'm in therapy and then we'll have therapy together and hopefully not get divorced because that would suck.
(21:20:35) VAdmBlackthorne: Oh damn.
(21:20:38) CdrTKirr: Um, yeah...
(21:20:52) CdrTKirr: I'm really sorry, that is important, despite my kidding around.
(21:20:57) LtAlexisWright: So do I officially get slack cut? ;)
(21:21:08) CdrTKirr: SLAP SLAP
(21:21:26) CdrTKirr: I think she just officially broke the cattleprod
(21:21:56) LtAlexisWright: It's a true story, I'm just trying not to be all like "I WILL DEPRESS EVERYONE SO THEY ARE LIKE MEEEEEEE"
(21:22:38) VAdmBlackthorne: Alright, let's have a sim then.
(21:22:51) LtAlexisWright: especially since there are newlyweds and engaged people in the room.
(21:23:05) CdrTKirr: :: TWEEEEEEEET :: Ooh that's been a while.
(21:23:18) VAdmBlackthorne: Well done, though, despite.
(21:23:18) LtAlexisWright: :: aa ::
(21:23:45) ColDougMcKnight: ::AA::
(21:24:42) VAdmBlackthorne has changed the topic to: With the Vrissk happy in their new home, we begin tonight preparing for another quantum slipstream flight.
(21:24:49) ColDougMcKnight: ( Been popping in and out. Christ, I'm sorry. Good luck? )
(21:25:23) VAdmBlackthorne: Questions?
(21:25:35) LtAlexisWright: ( thanks,... <3 I think we'll be okay but it's gonna be bumpy. fingers crossed.)
(21:25:40) LtAlexisWright: Can I drive?
(21:26:09) CdrHarper [Mibbit@lnym-73-158-179-06.rcmdva.fios.verizon.net] entered the room.
(21:26:10) LtAlexisWright: :: doesn't actually want to drive ::
(21:26:12) CdrHarper: No.
(21:26:21) LtAlexisWright: Awww. :: pouts ::
(21:26:31) LtLedaHarper [Talaith@34-75-2-24.hlrn.qwest.net] entered the room.
(21:26:38) VAdmBlackthorne: (Hiya Harpers!
(21:26:52) LtLedaHarper: (wugh. Late evening yard work is still not cool enough.)
(21:26:57) VAdmBlackthorne: Alright, here we goooooooo
(21:26:59) VAdmBlackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(21:27:00) VAdmBlackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(21:27:01) VAdmBlackthorne: BEGIN SIM
(21:27:31) CdrHarper: :: At Helm, quickly going through the pre-slipstream flight checklists ::
(21:27:51) CdrHarper: :: cancels the three-ring circus and closes all shops in the mall ::
(21:28:09) CdrTKirr: :: on the Bridge in her chair just off-center, checking department reports ::
(21:28:19) VAdmBlackthorne: :: walks out onto the bridge from the ready room :: T'Kirr, readiness reports from all departments, please.
(21:28:37) DoctorTav: :: AA :: :: in Sickbay, desicking people ::
(21:29:58) LtAlexisWright: :: At Science, doing science and still alive ::
(21:30:46) CdrTKirr: Other than several bays needing to be converted back from temporary habitation, and several plasma conduits slightly misaligned (where has that engineer been, anyway?), all departments report in ready.
(21:30:57) LtAlexisWright: :: still alive ::
(21:30:59) ColDougMcKnight: :: At tactical, frowning softly. :: Tactical stands ready, albeit with misgivings.
(21:31:01) LtAlexisWright: :: still alive ::
(21:31:13) CdrTKirr: (( lol ))
(21:31:23) VAdmBlackthorne: Misgivings, Colonel?
(21:34:16) ColDougMcKnight: Don't much like turning over shield control, be it to a technician or a computer algorithm, sir.
(21:34:40) VAdmBlackthorne: I understand. They're your babies.
(21:34:46) ColDougMcKnight: Not to mention, I have to admit part of me is still kind of hoping it turns out there's some impossible to resolve technical flaw to all this.
(21:34:59) LtKuari [TKirr@90-43-96-75.res.bhn.net] entered the room.
(21:35:13) ColDougMcKnight: Otherwise...this is a game changer. The quadrant's seen a few too many of those of late. Feels like a pot waiting to boil over.
(21:35:15) CdrTKirr: (( :: deletes Stho'Ka, with misty eyes :: ))
(21:35:28) ColDougMcKnight: Paranoia or not, there it is.
(21:35:38) DoctorTav: (( Aw... ))
(21:36:05) VAdmBlackthorne: The quadrant is no longer the effective border it once was. But yes, this changes everything.
(21:37:42) VAdmBlackthorne: We have lots of star systems to investigate, some from Voyager's long-range scans on her way home, some completely new to us. So let's see what's out there.
(21:38:02) LtKuari: :: rummages around Cargo Bay One, cleaning up shavings of a cargo container one of the Vrissk decided to start wittling on, unsure as to what tool it actually found to do so ::
(21:38:16) ColDougMcKnight: If I was the Romulans, I know how I'd respond. That's all I'm saying.
(21:38:37) VAdmBlackthorne: They've been quiet. But that's normal.
(21:39:21) ColDougMcKnight: :: Frowns more deeply. :: Yeah.
(21:39:27) ColDougMcKnight: Anyway, good to go.
(21:41:24) CdrHarper: The first potentially inhabited starsystem from the list you sent has been laid into the targeting computer, Admiral.
(21:42:38) VAdmBlackthorne: Excellent.
(21:43:28) CdrHarper: I would like you remind you, sir, that the precision of the targeting will only probably get us into the star system. Our flight to Gencodia and Discovery's flight out here were very lucky.
(21:43:30) CdrTKirr: :: looks up from her reports to the screen, deciding she's finally done gleaning information from them, her thoughts turning forward ::
(21:44:15) LtAlexisWright: :: looks over the navigational data to see if any fine-tuning can be done ::
(21:44:17) CdrHarper: Though I do believe it was because of the bet Discovery's helmsman had with me about who would have less drift. He won.
(21:44:29) VAdmBlackthorne: :: chuckles :: Understood, Commander.
(21:45:17) LtKuari: :: passes by a container with the shavings in a bag and smells something, turns and sniffs at the lid ::
(21:46:05) LtKuari: :: drops the bag and pries open the lid, sticking her head inside ::
(21:46:37) VAdmBlackthorne: I'm sure the quantum physics of slipstream conspired to make you lose the bet.
(21:48:01) CdrHarper: Subatomic particles hate me.
(21:48:18) VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns to T'Kirr :: Readiness from the rest of the departments?
(21:48:31) CdrTKirr: :: turns to him :: Ready.
(21:48:50) CdrHarper: :: secures all animals in the zoo ::
(21:49:13) LtCmdrBusard [Mibbit@v-30-997-94-44.hsd7.vt.comcast.net] entered the room.
(21:49:18) LtAlexisWright: :: battens down hatches ::
(21:49:19) VAdmBlackthorne: (Hiya Percy!)
(21:49:29) LtAlexisWright: (( Yaroo! ))
(21:49:36) LtKuari: :: finds a portion of replicated dried fruit she recognizes as being rationed to the Vrissk and eats it before moving on ::
(21:50:11) CdrTKirr: (( Omg hi! Btw the plasma conduits are slightly misaligned ))
(21:50:35) LtLedaHarper: (yeah, we're gonna die.)
(21:50:48) VAdmBlackthorne: (only a little)
(21:50:50) CdrTKirr: (( Slightly! ))
(21:50:57) LtCmdrBusard: (Hi guys.)
(21:51:55) LtCmdrBusard: (I'll get right on that :-P)
(21:52:06) DoctorTav: (( This quantum crap is crazy. I mean, the fact that you can partially die? Mind... blown ))
(21:52:26) VAdmBlackthorne: ((But the state of how dead you are changes if it's observed.))
(21:52:35) VAdmBlackthorne: +Engineering+ Blackthorne to Busard.
(21:52:53) LtCmdrBusard: +Blackthorne+ Busard here.
(21:54:00) VAdmBlackthorne: +Busard+ Got all the kinks worked out of that new engine?
(22:00:27) LtCmdrBusard: +Blackthorne+ Nearly, sir. I'm working on a slight misalignment in the plasma conduits. Additionally, I'm trying to set up a system to project what margin of error we should expect for each use of the slipstream drive.
(22:00:55) VAdmBlackthorne: +Busard+ When will we be ready for slipstream?
(22:04:20) LtCmdrBusard: +Blackthorne+ The misalignment should be fixed within the next few minutes. That's childsplay. The margin of error projection program will take a little longer to complete, but I have my best technicians working on it.
(22:04:50) VAdmBlackthorne: +Busard+ Excellent. Plan on slipstream in ten minutes.
(22:05:03) CdrHarper: :: puts up a countdown on the main viewer ::
(22:05:08) LtCmdrBusard: Theoretically the drive can be used before said program is complete, but we'll have no way of knowing how far off course we'll end up until we arrive.
(22:05:31) LtCmdrBusard: +Blackthorne+ Ten minutes. Yes, sir.
(22:06:31) VAdmBlackthorne: +Busard+ The margin of error is within the acceptable risk, but being able to predict it would be valuable.
(22:06:40) CdrTKirr: :: is amused by Blackthorne's use of the main viewer ::
(22:07:23) VAdmBlackthorne: :: that was Harper ::
(22:08:41) LtCmdrBusard: +Harper+ I agree. I'll try to get it up and running by the time we jump.
(22:09:31) LtCmdrBusard: :: Engineer engineer engineeeeeeeeer::
(22:09:57) ColDougMcKnight: I'm also taking our phasers offline during the flight, and rerouting the power to shore up the structural integrity field. Just in case.
(22:10:59) CdrTKirr: :: notes this with approval and looks to Blackthorne ::
(22:11:06) LtAlexisWright: :: has experiments to run, there is research to be done ::
(22:11:40) DoctorTav: :: is continuing to keep people still alive ::
(22:12:01) CdrTKirr: (( SO on cue. ))
(22:12:01) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods :: That makes sense.
(22:12:49) LtCmdrBusard: (Lulz)
(22:13:45) VAdmBlackthorne: :: punches his chair arm and goes shipwide :: All crew, stand by for quantum slipstream flight in five minutes. This will be a longer stretch of our legs than before - five thousand light years, into the beta quadrant.
(22:14:15) LtAlexisWright: :: reviewing navigational data, makes an off-hand comment to no one in particular :: These points of data make a beautiful line.
(22:14:29) DoctorTav: :: begins to prepare Sickbay for the jump. ::
(22:16:00) LtKuari: :: takes one last look around the bay before exiting, then hears the shipwide comm about imminent slipstream ::
(22:17:41) LtKuari: :: trots down the corridor excitedly, if a bit nervously ::
(22:18:33) VAdmBlackthorne: :: looks at the clock:: +Busard+ Bridge to engineering. Two minutes - are we go?
(22:21:33) LtCmdrBusard: +Bridge+ We are, sir. Engineering is secure and ready for jump. The new program foresees a maximum margin of error of .0025 percent.
(22:21:51) VAdmBlackthorne: +Busard+ Excellent work. Stand by.
(22:22:10) VAdmBlackthorne: Yellow alert, Mr. McKnight. Raise the shields and transfer control to the flight computer.
(22:22:24) ColDougMcKnight: :: Allows himself a little smile as he focuses on his console. Subtle, but there. ::
(22:22:46) ColDougMcKnight: :: And there it goes. :: Yes, sir. Shields up.
(22:23:16) LtAlexisWright: :: activates hull sensors to collect more slipstream data ::
(22:23:22) CdrTKirr: :: makes sure Yellow Alert happens, because that's her job ::
(22:23:27) CdrHarper: One minute and counting.
(22:23:35) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sits down ::
(22:23:54) VAdmBlackthorne: +Shipwide+ All hands, slipstream flight in thirty seconds.
(22:24:27) CdrTKirr: :: holds onto her chair somewhat subconsciously ::
(22:25:02) LtKuari: :: reaches Security and sits on a bench, gripping its grilled surface with her toes ::
(22:25:38) LtAlexisWright: :: barely keeps from rubbing her hands together excitedly as she waits for data to start appearing ::
(22:25:38) CdrHarper: :: quadruple-checks the deflector angle algorithm ::
(22:25:46) CdrHarper: Five. Four. Three...
(22:25:54) VAdmBlackthorne: Punch it!
(22:26:03) CdrHarper: :: hits the big red button ::
(22:26:27) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> A massive green tunnel appears on the main viewer and Atlantis is drawn in.
(22:27:29) LtKuari: :: feels a little light-headed as dampeners compensate, but it passes quickly ::
(22:27:34) CdrHarper: Lt. Wright, watch that deflector angle. :: eyes it while she watches a ton of other things ::
(22:28:30) LtAlexisWright: Aye, Commander. :: has it pulled up on her main console viewer ::
(22:29:16) VAdmBlackthorne: Status?
(22:29:28) CdrTKirr: :: draws her eyes to her chair's mini-console, watching several main levels ::
(22:29:34) CdrHarper: Nominal so far.
(22:29:46) LtAlexisWright: Deflector angle steady.
(22:31:49) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods with satisfaction ::
(22:32:29) VAdmBlackthorne: Time to our destination?
(22:32:57) CdrTKirr: :: watches the trippy imagine on screen ::
(22:33:01) CdrHarper: Thirty minutes.
(22:33:37) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Twenty nine minutes later...
(22:34:24) CdrHarper: Slipstream flight ending in thirty seconds.
(22:34:32) LtAlexisWright: Deflector angle is deviating slightly, but still within operational parameters.
(22:35:02) ColDougMcKnight: Hull stress still well within regular tolerance.
(22:35:09) CdrHarper: Keep an eyes on it, the end of the flight is stressful.
(22:35:24) CdrHarper: Dropping the slipstream in ten.
(22:35:28) Rubix [Mibbit@v-30-997-94-44.hsd7.vt.comcast.net] entered the room.
(22:35:39) ColDougMcKnight: I'll give it this much. Heck of a show.
(22:35:40) LtAlexisWright: Reaching warning range on deflector angle.
(22:36:28) CdrHarper: Five, four, three...
(22:36:54) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Atlantis pops our of the slipstream.
(22:36:56) LtAlexisWright: Nearing critical
(22:37:02) CdrHarper: Calculating our position...
(22:37:14) VAdmBlackthorne: Sensor sweep.
(22:37:45) CdrHarper: Within the target star system. Drift - twenty AU.
(22:38:03) LtAlexisWright: Pre-programmed sweep began as soon as we left slipstream and is in progress.
(22:38:14) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Two ships appear on sensors, heading our way.
(22:38:18) CdrTKirr: :: looks at Wright's readings before glancing up at the screen as they drop, then back to sensors, unable to help herself ::
(22:38:21) VAdmBlackthorne: Twenty AU. Not bad.
(22:38:42) ColDougMcKnight: :: Frowns. :: Long range contacts. Reactivating phasers.
(22:38:55) VAdmBlackthorne: Any known configuration?
(22:39:14) Rubix: :: Is doing magnetized cartwheels on the ceiling of engineering:: Whiiiirrr!
(22:39:27) LtAlexisWright: :: sends detailed sensor readings to McKnight ::
(22:39:30) CdrHarper: :: smiles and pats the console ::
(22:39:33) ColDougMcKnight: If they were, this would be a pretty disappointing trip, now wouldn't it? No, no match on file.
(22:39:42) VAdmBlackthorne: Naturally.
(22:39:52) VAdmBlackthorne: Hail them.
(22:40:06) ColDougMcKnight: :: Begins a thorough tactical scan, trying to determine their offensive and defensive capabilities. Speed, means of thrust, power output, etc. ::
(22:40:17) LtAlexisWright: :: Hails them ::
(22:41:13) CdrTKirr: :: looks to the screen, ready to receive first impressions of their sure-to-be-alien welcomers to their landing location ::
(22:41:22) LtAlexisWright: Channel... appears to be open, Admiral. :: hesitates :: the comm frequencies are a little... wonky.
(22:41:44) VAdmBlackthorne: What do you mean by wonky?
(22:41:48) CdrHarper: "wonky?"
(22:42:16) VAdmBlackthorne: Unidentified starships, this is Admiral Ian Blackthorne of the United Federation of Planets vessel Atlantis. We come in peace.
(22:42:22) VAdmBlackthorne: (shoot to kill shoot to kill shoot to kill)
(22:42:26) LtAlexisWright: They don't quite... match up properly. I'm attempting to compensate.
(22:42:32) CdrTKirr: :: studies the comm frequencies herself, finding the adjective to be inadequate ::
(22:42:43) Rubix: (WE COME IN PEACE WE *BLAM* COME IN PEACE)
(22:43:04) LtAlexisWright: Please repeat your hail, sir, I think I've improved the signal. A little.
(22:43:05) CdrHarper: ;: confused by that one, but what else is new ::
(22:43:08) VAdmBlackthorne: :: does so ::
(22:43:27) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> No reply from the ships. As they get closer, one appears to be chasing the other, since they're exchanging fire.
(22:43:50) ColDougMcKnight: ...that could also be an impediment to getting a conversation started.
(22:43:59) ColDougMcKnight: They're not friends, sir.
(22:44:03) ColDougMcKnight: Not good friends, anyway.
(22:44:11) LtAlexisWright: :: analyzes the weapons fire :: ....Huh.
(22:44:40) VAdmBlackthorne: Red alert.
(22:44:58) ColDougMcKnight: :: Checks the power output of those weapons against their own. :: Red alert, aye. Phasers to pwer. Torpedoes loaded and ready.
(22:45:03) ColDougMcKnight: ( power )
(22:45:14) CdrTKirr: :: quietly :: Ian, perhaps it would be best we not get involved.
(22:45:27) VAdmBlackthorne: I'm not intending to. Unless they involve us.
(22:45:30) LtAlexisWright: The weapons fire looks odd on sensor readings, too. Almost like things are ... out of phase, or something.
(22:46:06) LtAlexisWright: May I suggest that we remove ourselves from the immediate area if we do not wish to become involved?
(22:46:31) ColDougMcKnight: Sir, I AM seeing some similarities in the overall design. Just a guess, but I'm guessing a common design origin. Possibly same species, even.
(22:46:40) CdrTKirr: :: frowns at Wright's description and stands, striding over to Science to look over her shoulder ::
(22:47:29) LtAlexisWright: :: notices T'Kirr coming up behind her, and pulls up the data to which she is referring :: Do you see what I mean, about the comm frequencies here, and the weapons analysis here?
(22:47:39) ColDougMcKnight: LIKE they're out of phase? If that's actually the case, then aren't we theoretically safe?
(22:48:14) VAdmBlackthorne: Kate, warp speed out of the system.
(22:48:33) CdrHarper: Aye sir. :: engages warp ::
(22:48:48) VAdmBlackthorne: (Five minutes)
(22:48:57) LtAlexisWright: It's like they compare to our own on a 1:1 basis, but they're... shifted.
(22:49:12) CdrTKirr: :: feels an unusual prickling up her spine, confused by the readings ::
(22:49:31) ColDougMcKnight: Some kind of defensive system, maybe?
(22:49:39) LtAlexisWright: Can you confirm my observation?
(22:49:49) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> The second ship turns and stands to fight.
(22:50:02) CdrTKirr: I can...however unlikely it appears it could be.
(22:50:25) LtAlexisWright: It's possible that it's a fundamental property of this part of space, Colonel.
(22:51:06) LtAlexisWright: It's also possible that our sensors were damaged during slipstream... I'll have to take them offline and run a full diagnostic to check.
(22:51:40) ColDougMcKnight: We might want to run a general scan of the surrounding system first. Test out that first theory.
(22:51:47) LtCmdrBusard: :: Examines the ships through Atlantis's current readings:: Fascinating...
(22:51:58) Rubix: :: Dances ::
(22:52:05) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(22:52:08) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(22:52:09) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(22:52:15) CdrTKirr: :: pauses ::
(22:52:20) LtAlexisWright: :: || ::
(22:52:21) LtCmdrBusard: Rubix, cut that out.
(22:52:27) LtCmdrBusard: :: Pauses::
(22:52:32) CdrTKirr: You know you love it
(22:52:37) VAdmBlackthorne: Alright, we're on our way!
(22:52:43) ColDougMcKnight: :: Pauses as well. ::
(22:52:45) Rubix: :: DOES NOT PAUSE THE DANCING!::
(22:52:46) ColDougMcKnight: So we are!
(22:52:49) CdrTKirr: Who borked space
(22:52:49) Rubix: :: Okay maybe::
(22:53:57) LtCmdrBusard: IT WAS YOU.
(22:54:02) LtCmdrBusard: Or maybe someone else.
(22:54:05) CdrTKirr: o.O
(22:54:05) LtCmdrBusard: But definitely not me.
(22:54:16) LtCmdrBusard: *whistles*
(22:54:18) LtAlexisWright: I was planning to scan the star to see if the radiation frequencies matched up with what they're supposed to, someone who is in charge of this story will have to tell me if it matters whether they do or not.
(22:54:20) CdrTKirr: :: points to Kuari :: She fluffed.
(22:54:51) LtCmdrBusard: Ewww, dragon farts.
(22:54:52) CdrTKirr: I'm not running his show anymore, I quit
(22:55:05) DoctorTav: Wow. The Vulcan just went postal
(22:55:09) LtKuari: O.o
(22:55:13) VAdmBlackthorne: You can have fun with that one Wright.
(22:55:35) LtAlexisWright: O-tay!
(22:56:12) LtCmdrBusard: :: Receives a letter informing her of the Vulcan's status:: By George you're right! She did!
(22:56:17) LtCmdrBusard: *monocle*
(22:56:28) LtAlexisWright: :: approves of monocle usage ::
(22:57:07) LtKuari: :: plucks monocle and attempts to use it, fails ::
(22:57:51) LtKuari: How to use lens smaller than the one in my eye...
(22:58:36) VAdmBlackthorne: It's so good to see everyone here. :)
(22:58:43) LtAlexisWright: ^_^
(22:58:50) LtCmdrBusard: Squint! Squint like the wind!
(22:59:21) NakanishtallaEndilev [Mibbit@s-11-377-857-764.hsd3.or.comcast.net] entered the room.
(22:59:36) NakanishtallaEndilev: Mandatory Psych evals for everyone. NO EXCUSES!
(22:59:54) DoctorTav: Sorry, don't have time.
(23:00:02) LtCmdrBusard: Um...My doctor wrote me a note excusing me.
(23:00:11) LtCmdrBusard: On account of insanity.
(23:00:40) VAdmBlackthorne: Whee, free shrink!
(23:00:45) NakanishtallaEndilev: :: gives everyone surly Andorian looks, antennae pointing at everyone in turn ::
(23:01:01) LtKuari: :: hopes she passes humanoid exam ::
(23:01:02) DoctorTav: OMG, yesterday, the couple I was trying to sell to were a psych tech and a psychiatrist, PhD. So, the psychology of sales... um... how do you think it works on them when they spend the time evaluating me instead of just listening to the presentation. And it's true... I did write Percy a note.
(23:01:36) VAdmBlackthorne: Jack> I didn't.
(23:01:36) LtCmdrBusard: *nods sagely as she paints the walls in goat blood*
(23:02:20) NakanishtallaEndilev: :: observes painting :: You know, I've found Vulcan blood has a much nicer texture
(23:02:22) DoctorTav: And then I mailed that note to Uzbekistan.
(23:02:29) NakanishtallaEndilev: :: to T'Kirr :: No offense.
(23:02:31) LtCmdrBusard: GENIUS.
(23:02:41) LtCmdrBusard: Hey T'Kirr, c'mere.
(23:02:49) CdrTKirr: o.O
(23:03:09) CdrTKirr: T-t-texture?
(23:03:14) LtCmdrBusard: Oh come on. I'm not gonna use ALL of your blood.
(23:03:24) LtCmdrBusard: ....Just most of it.
(23:03:28) NakanishtallaEndilev: Oh, yes, especially with a stipple brush. :: nods ::
(23:03:39) DoctorTav: :: puts some Vulcan blood on standby in Sickbay ::
(23:03:39) CdrTKirr: But...I needs it.
(23:04:04) VAdmBlackthorne: How else will she get green pigment?
(23:04:07) CdrTKirr: Just stir some fine copper shavings into the goat blood, done
(23:04:10) LtCmdrBusard: Seriously.
(23:04:27) LtCmdrBusard: That's totally cheap and selling out.
(23:04:43) CdrTKirr: Cheap, but EFFECTIVE
(23:04:47) CdrTKirr: You should sell it
(23:04:57) LtCmdrBusard: But not as effective as- sell it you say?
(23:05:05) LtCmdrBusard: Receive money you say?
(23:05:13) LtCmdrBusard: *does not compute*
(23:05:17) CdrTKirr: Well...you could give me a cut
(23:05:17) DoctorTav: In the 24th Century you say?
(23:05:23) CdrTKirr: For the idea
(23:05:33) CdrTKirr: Latinum
(23:05:40) CdrTKirr: They take it everywhere
(23:05:47) CdrTKirr: Except maybe the Delta quadrant
(23:05:55) DoctorTav: Don't give Percy the idea of giving you a cut. She doesn't quite see it the same way right now. Remember, we are discussing your blood and what side of your skin it should be on.
(23:05:56) CdrTKirr: But who goes there, boonies
(23:06:09) NakanishtallaEndilev: Klingon blood also works well, is much more... rich... but not for the risk-averse.
(23:06:12) CdrTKirr: O.o
(23:06:32) DoctorTav: Klingon blood... very valuable.
(23:06:43) VAdmBlackthorne: And pink.
(23:06:46) CdrTKirr: I do have to bring up the idea...because you know, it's come to my attention, that Klingons are popular with vampires.
(23:07:08) DoctorTav: Klingons on Vampire Diaries? What?
(23:07:09) CdrTKirr: It's like eating a whole cake, though.
(23:07:21) CdrTKirr: Um, wrong era.
(23:07:37) DoctorTav: Naw, they'll still be around. The Klingons, I mean.
(23:07:39) CdrTKirr: Unless, you know, they live out of that era and into the next.
(23:08:01) DoctorTav: All depends how often they get trapped in burning basements
(23:08:04) CdrTKirr: Salvatores forevah...if they don't kill each other.
(23:08:11) VAdmBlackthorne: :: is lost ::
(23:08:20) NakanishtallaEndilev: :: is lost with you ::
(23:08:20) CdrTKirr: We're mostly making it up =P
(23:08:20) DoctorTav: You might just be happier that way
(23:08:32) VAdmBlackthorne: You're probably right.
(23:08:44) DoctorTav: The sad part of this is that we're having this conversation a room apart
(23:09:05) NakanishtallaEndilev: Sounds like a soap opera about coma patients
(23:09:10) NakanishtallaEndilev: "A Room Apart"
(23:09:14) CdrTKirr: Actually I read a crossover waaaay before Vampire Diaries existed, Tav just suggested it
(23:09:16) DoctorTav: So, Nakanishtalla Endilev... What should we call you for short?
(23:09:21) LtLedaHarper: I think we've firmly established by now that we're all WEIRD.
(23:09:21) CdrTKirr: LOL Nak
(23:09:24) NakanishtallaEndilev: Talla
(23:09:26) VAdmBlackthorne: That IS her short name.
(23:09:31) LtCmdrBusard: Whoop, I got distracted and now I don't want to paint with blood anymore.
(23:09:43) CdrTKirr: YAY
(23:09:46) LtLedaHarper: Blood doesn't keep that pretty red anyway.
(23:09:47) CdrTKirr: Erm.
(23:09:54) DoctorTav: Besides, having vampires lick the walls is not attractive
(23:10:04) DoctorTav: Zombies just break through.
(23:10:08) CdrTKirr: Hm, well that's escalated.
(23:10:25) LtCmdrBusard: ....BRILLIANT.
(23:10:34) CdrTKirr: If you mentioned vampires licking walls ANYWHERE ELSE people would be like...huh?
(23:10:38) LtCmdrBusard: My new medium shall be....ZOMBIES
(23:10:45) NakanishtallaEndilev: Jim Morrison zombies? Breaking on through?
(23:10:56) CdrTKirr: Might wanna work with Tav on that one, I hear he resurrects the dead.
(23:10:59) DoctorTav: Tony Robbins Power Zombies
(23:11:17) NakanishtallaEndilev: Billy Mays zombie would be the most terrifying zombie
(23:11:35) DoctorTav: Gah!
(23:11:50) DoctorTav: I was referring to zombies getting self help from Tony.
(23:12:12) DoctorTav: Or that guy with the ShamWow towels.
(23:12:19) DoctorTav: That would be frightening
(23:12:31) NakanishtallaEndilev: Billy Mays zombie could show other zombies how to reassemble themselves with FlexSeal
(23:12:58) DoctorTav: For just 29.95
(23:13:00) NakanishtallaEndilev: THEY WOULD BE UNSTOPPABLE
(23:13:00) DoctorTav: $
(23:13:08) CdrTKirr: All right, off to bed. *winkhintTavwinkhint*
(23:13:25) LtCmdrBusard: Lmao
(23:13:26) NakanishtallaEndilev: I must go also, I need dinner
(23:13:28) LtKuari left the room.
(23:13:30) LtCmdrBusard: I love it.
(23:13:32) DoctorTav: Good night, all
(23:13:36) NakanishtallaEndilev: <3
(23:13:36) VAdmBlackthorne: Good sim tonight, glad to see everyone here!
(23:13:40) NakanishtallaEndilev left the room (quit: Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
(23:13:40) DoctorTav: Work in the morning. Gonna have a sale
(23:13:41) LtCmdrBusard: And good sex to you, sir!
(23:13:43) CdrTKirr: Just realized that would be totally wrong if not ooc
(23:13:43) LtAlexisWright: <3
(23:13:48) LtAlexisWright: lulz
(23:13:53) CdrTKirr: Night!
