Conversation with #ussatlantis at Wed Sep 4 21:00:42 2013 on VAdmBlackthorne@packetstorm.va.us.darkmyst.org (irc)
(21:00:42) The topic for #USSAtlantis is: Our awesome crew has managed to compensate for the phase variance in the local energy and modify our shields so that they function, while those of the locals do not. We're winning the battle, although it's quite chaotic, with ships on both sides changing allegiances and propoganda flying through the airwaves. Unfortunately, we sustained heavy damage before modifying our shields, and we'v

(21:00:56) CdrTKirr: Tav will be in, he's slacking.
(21:01:12) VAdmBlackthorne: SLACKER!
(21:02:18) LtAlexisWright: Your favorite Who writer?
(21:02:26) LtAlexisWright: and hi, Boss
(21:02:50) CdrTKirr: Yeah, not the band, you know.
(21:04:37) VAdmBlackthorne: Yeah, that one would be easy since Pete Townshend wrote most of the songs. :V

(21:06:12) CdrTKirr: Tav took a nap and is a bit sluggish...I know the feeling.
(21:06:42) DoctorTav [Bryan@90-43-96-75.res.bhn.net] entered the room.
(21:06:44) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya Doc

(21:16:57) VAdmBlackthorne has changed the topic to: The battle seems to be turning in the rebels' favor, despite all the propoganda and ships with shifting allegiances. Our intruder problem has probably been stamped out, and our shields now function against the local energy phase, while their shields don't function against our weapons. We do have major damage, hull breaches, warp and quantum drives offline, and a broken disco ball to deal
(21:17:03) VAdmBlackthorne: with while they duke it out.
(21:17:25) VAdmBlackthorne: Questions?
(21:17:43) DoctorTav: Disco ball is engineering, right?

(21:17:51) CdrTKirr: lol
(21:17:59) VAdmBlackthorne: Mm.
(21:18:31) DoctorTav: I don't want to see that thing crashing through the doors of Sickbay. Just saying.
(21:18:34) ColDougMcKnight: No, I think I'm up to speed.

(21:20:08) LtAlexisWright: Can I advise those sheltering from boarding parties that they can come out and play now? Or should we let them cower for a while?
(21:20:12) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sitting center seat, watching the battle and listening to radio chatter ::
(21:21:09) CdrTKirr: :: attempting to keep track of incoming reports and battle status on sensors from next to him ::
(21:22:12) CdrHarper: :: at the helm, keeping Atlantis roughly nearby Ot's ship, since it at least hasn't changed sides ::
(21:22:16) ColDougMcKnight: :: Shakes his head. :: Marines on site will advise them on a case by case basis as sweeps are completed.
(21:22:57) VAdmBlackthorne: Syvek> :: in sickbay, having been stabbed ::
(21:24:16) DoctorTav: :: begins working with Doctor Nolan and the ever-pleasant EMH to repair the hemotomas plaguing Crewman Rinyar, when suddenly her vitals begin to plummet. :: She's got an air bubble in her brain. Doctor Nolan, grab the stasis unit and cortical inhibitor, I'll get the neuroencephalogram in place.
(21:26:57) LtAlexisWright: Well, many of these people may have lost their homes, belongings, or family members and not even know it - I'd like to be able to give them information about which areas are not safe to go and set up a designated rally point where people can either reunite with their families or not. And I'd really like to get wounded to Sickbay as quickly as possible...
(21:27:21) LtAlexisWright: I can provide locations with unstable or weak life signs, and then locations where life signs are most heavily concentrated...?
(21:27:42) LtAlexisWright: Would it be acceptable to prioritize sweeps in those locations?
(21:28:10) CdrTKirr: Nolan> :: dashes off :: Yes, Doctor. :: grabs the inhibitor first, getting it to Rinyar and placing it over her forehead carefully, then goes for the statis unit ::
(21:30:56) VAdmBlackthorne: Syvek> :: bleeds green all over the place ::
(21:31:32) LtAlexisWright: :: continues to ask people who are sheltering and requesting instructions to stay put and stand by ::
(21:34:03) VAdmBlackthorne: :: just knows he's somehow going to end up on trial for this, despite his best efforts to not be in this battle ::
(21:34:44) ColDougMcKnight: Which areas are or are not safe is a determination best made by those actually on site. That's their job. As for any weak life signs, then by all means, relay it to sickbay.
(21:35:23) CdrTKirr: (( If Starfleet flagships weren't so damn fortified, they wouldn't get caught up in fights, they'd just get blown up ))
(21:35:41) VAdmBlackthorne: ((Damn straight)
(21:36:50) ColDougMcKnight: :: Sighs :: But I WILL direct my men to start a tally by name of those accounted for, and forward it to sickbay. If you're fielding calls from below decks, then you can refer to that via Lieutenant O'Grady.
(21:36:58) LtAlexisWright: :: listening to children crying in her ear because their mommy is on the floor and she won't wake up :: Do we need Marine escorts for the medical teams, assuming there are any medical teams able to leave Sickbay and collect these people?
(21:37:05) DoctorTav: :: grabs a neural probe and begins scanning for this air bubble :: EMH, grab some nanosearch units and get them into her head, see if they can find it before me.
(21:37:05) DoctorTav: EMH> :: grabs a hypospray with the NSUs and injects it into Rinyar ::
(21:37:05) DoctorTav: :: continues searching for the air bubble ::
(21:40:26) ColDougMcKnight: ( Dammit, there was some crap about damaged site to site transporters, wasn't there? )
(21:40:33) CdrTKirr: Nolan> :: returns with the statis unit and stands by with it, peering at Rinyar's face before checking the medical scans ::
(21:40:37) LtAlexisWright: (mhm)
(21:42:41) DoctorTav: :: notices Dr. Nolan but doesn't look up :: Go ahead, Doctor.
(21:44:05) CdrTKirr: Nolan> :: reaches forward and places the stasis unit on Rinyar's forehead, above the inhibitor, and activates it, watching the scans to make sure of its success ::
(21:46:43) ColDougMcKnight: There are marines on every deck. Any medical teams will have their escorts. But direct the scan results to security as well, in case they haven't looked at the same readouts. Prioritizing search and rescue is SOP.
(21:47:18) LtAlexisWright: :: watches a life sign actually wink out of existence while they are having this conversation and squeezes her eyes closed in a moment of grief ::
(21:47:20) DoctorTav: Got it! :: zeroes in on the air pocket and sends the NSUs to them to begin the repair. He checks the time :: Barely made it. But she'll get out of this one. Doctor Nolan, take over a minute.
(21:48:33) LtAlexisWright: +Sickbay+ Ops to anyone available in Sickbay. Are there any medical teams available for search and rescue ops?
(21:48:55) CdrTKirr: Nolan> :: comes around the biobed and takes the neural probe from Tav, peering at the panel assigned to the NSU programming ::
(21:49:21) DoctorTav: :: on his way to the lavatory notices Syvek and the green aura around him, walks over and sees the stab wound. He thinks a moment, realizes that Nolan has Rinyar well enough in hand for the moment, and then gets to work ::
(21:49:26) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> The battle approaches its end at a steadily quickening pace, as more Crimson Sun ships are either destroyed or turn rebel.
(21:49:44) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> And at least for now, no one seems to want to mess with us.
(21:50:55) LtAlexisWright: +Sickbay+ Ops to EMH. Are there any medical teams that can be sent on emergency search & rescue?
(21:51:27) ColDougMcKnight: Sir, things seem to be dying down here. Permission to turn tactical over to a second, and take charge of the cleanup below decks?
(21:51:36) VAdmBlackthorne: Syvek> Ehhhhhh.
(21:52:06) VAdmBlackthorne: Granted. T'Kirr, take tactical.
(21:52:45) DoctorTav: +Wright+ Lieutenant. We're pretty tight down here. I can maybe spare... :: looks around :: one medical team.
(21:53:10) CdrTKirr: :: blinks ::
(21:53:26) VAdmBlackthorne: We need all the marines downstairs.
(21:53:43) CdrTKirr: :: stands and heads to Tac ::
(21:55:37) LtAlexisWright: +Tav+ How about if I can supplement you with some muscle? S2S transporters are down and we have a lot of people who are in a bad way. I can pull some Ops bodies off the hull repair teams to assist. Please have your available medical folks report to Ops for instructions.
(21:56:47) DoctorTav: +Wright+ If I could have six assistants for my medics who can take direction well, I could break up the medic team and have three teams.
(21:57:27) DoctorTav: :: finishes with Syvek :: Lieutennant, you'll be okay, but you need to take it easy a few days.
(21:57:47) LtAlexisWright: :: moments later has a handful of the 6 most capable Ops team members en route to Sickbay meet the medics ::
(21:59:54) ColDougMcKnight: :: Steps into the lift, calls for deck 7, and is on his comm badge on the way down. :: +Security+ Captain Montrose, on the off chance it's not happening already, direct all marine fire teams to begin their sweeps with the weakest life signs. If you haven't had access to those readings, you should be getting them now.
(22:00:00) LtAlexisWright: +Tav+ Excellent. I just recruited 6 assistant medics and they're en route to Sickbay to meet your team. Thanks, Doc. Keep up the good work.
(22:00:01) VAdmBlackthorne: Syvek> Thank you, doctor.
(22:01:20) DoctorTav: +Wright+ Thank you. Is there a better place to send my med team leaders?
(22:02:11) DoctorTav: :: runs to the lavatory just outside Sickbay ::
(22:04:03) CdrTKirr: :: situates herself at Tactical and studies the overlay of the battle scene outside and how the HUD differs from her usual Science perspective ::
(22:04:07) DoctorTav: :: comes back into Sickbay and scrubs back into the operation with Rinyar :: Doctor Nolan, what's going on?
(22:04:58) LtAlexisWright: :: relays all the necessary information to the med teams ::
(22:05:33) LtKuari: :: trots down a corridor she was dispatched to, finds a dead woman and keeps looking ::
(22:06:41) CdrTKirr: Nolan> :: doesn't glance up from the panel :: The NSUs have found it. :: points at the display :: There, just beyond the branch in the artery.
(22:08:30) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> The battle seems to conclude as the last government ship explodes.
(22:09:06) CdrTKirr: It appears...we've won.
(22:09:26) LtAlexisWright: :: getting updated casualty reports from the Marines and the med teams and Sickbay and making sure they get distributed as needed ::
(22:09:46) DoctorTav: :: moves in to see what Doctor Nolan is seeing :: Nice work, Doctor. You got this?
(22:11:08) CdrTKirr: Nolan> :: nods, finally glancing away to meet Tav's eyes, his voice upturned :: Sure, if you need. I can handle it.
(22:11:46) VAdmBlackthorne: That's good news, at least. For certain definitions of "we."
(22:11:49) ColDougMcKnight: :: After taking a moment to survey the situation in security, he continues into his office, and emerges a moment later with a fully stocked med kit. :: Looks like it's time to keep my certification current. O'Grady, beam me to deck 17. That seems to be where there's the most weak signals.
(22:12:03) DoctorTav: Very good. I have several other crewmembers and officers that need our help. From what I've been hearing, there are gonna be more coming in.
(22:12:29) ColDougMcKnight: I'll try and stabilize people as I go while they await transport to sickbay. Wait for my word, then transport me to the next crisis zone our computers recognize.
(22:12:57) LtAlexisWright: MedOps Team 2> +Wright+ EllTee, a lot of these injured on this deck have one or two other uninjured people with them and they're asking us what to do. What should we tell them?
(22:13:52) CdrTKirr: Nolan> :: nods :: I'll make sure beds are clear by the time you get back.
(22:14:29) DoctorTav: :: nods and turns to walk away :: Thank you, Alex.
(22:16:22) CdrTKirr: Nolan> :: turns back to scrutinizing the panel, tapping commands to the NSUs ::
(22:17:01) LtAlexisWright: :: thinks for a moment :: +MedOps Team 2+ Get them to consolidate into small groups - at least then they won't be alone - and advise them to stay put for now. We'll have more information soon. They can ask the computer for the most current Ops update.
(22:17:55) LtAlexisWright: MedOps Team 2> +Wright+ Acknowledged. Will do.
(22:19:10) CdrTKirr: All weapons fire has ceased. Vessels appear to have slowed to assess damage and stand by.
(22:22:03) VAdmBlackthorne: Stand by as well then. Until they sort out what they want to do.
(22:22:28) LtAlexisWright: Computer, begin recording Operations Update. All Hands, be advised that the boarding parties appear to have been neutralized, but please remain where you are until the Marines sweep your area and release you. Medical teams are actively seeking out injured personnel - help is on the way. The battle appears to have ended outside. We have hull breaches on...
(22:22:34) LtKuari: :: finds an unconscious crewman, lowering her nose to identify his injury ::
(22:25:39) LtAlexisWright: ..., so all available able-bodied individuals who can offer assistance in repairs are asked to report in to the Ops comm frequency. Please use caution if you are on one of the decks most heavily damaged, as the structural elements on those decks may be unstable. :: pauses for a moment ::
(22:26:06) LtKuari: :: bends down further, sliding the man over a wing and sprawling him across her back, then heads back the way she came ::
(22:27:07) VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Ot's ship hails us.
(22:28:08) DoctorTav: :: takes a look at the triage reports on his PADD and goes for the crewmember who needs attention the most, to see if the nursing staff needs his assistance, then prepares to move on to the next. He finally lights on an officer who suffered pulmonary edema. ::
(22:28:38) LtAlexisWright: :: takes a deep breath and continues :: I know you have unanswered questions - I will do my best to keep you informed. Thank you for your understanding. Lt. Wright out. Computer, end recording and distribute upon request.
(22:29:10) CdrTKirr: We're being hailed. It's Ot.
(22:29:15) VAdmBlackthorne: On screen.
(22:29:19) CdrTKirr: :: tap ::
(22:30:02) ColDougMcKnight: +Sickbay+ Sickbay, this is McKnight. Deck 17, section 3-J. Reporting burns and a shrapnel injury from a blown relay. I've applied an emergency pressure bandage, and carried out emergency repairs to the main arteries. Condition severe, but momentarily stable. Moving on.
(22:30:19) VAdmBlackthorne: Ot> The battle is won, Admiral. Your assistance, although reluctant, was invaluable.
(22:30:56) LtAlexisWright: :: turns her attention to the main screen ::
(22:31:37) CdrTKirr: :: wants to tell Ot where he can stick it ::
(22:32:53) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods :: Although it's true that our policy is not to involve ourselves, I am personally glad that you won.
(22:34:05) DoctorTav: +McKnight+ MedTeam 2 is on the way.
(22:34:21) LtAlexisWright: :: quirks an eyebrow in surprised confusion before quickly schooling her features back into serene smoothness ::
(22:34:41) VAdmBlackthorne: Ot> Thank you. The war is not over, of course, but that was likely the decisive battle.
(22:35:51) VAdmBlackthorne: Ot> Your technology is obviously superior to ours. However, your ship appears to have sustained heavy damage before you were able to modify your shields. In return for your assistance in that battle, may we supply you with anything to make repairs?
(22:36:37) CdrTKirr: :: looks from Ot's image to Blackthorne, her outer countenance revealing nothing ::
(22:37:11) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods :: We would be grateful for whatever you can provide.
(22:37:57) LtAlexisWright: :: looks down at the weak life signs stabilizing a few at a time, then notices a pattern... it's almost as if there are FOUR groups out there stabilizing the most gravely wounded. Hmmmm. ::
(22:39:08) VAdmBlackthorne: Ot> Certainly. There is a shipyard orbiting one of the moons of this planet. We will have it secured shortly and make raw materials available to you.
(22:39:16) VAdmBlackthorne: Thank you. Atlantis out.
(22:40:12) LtKuari: :: enters Sickbay, heads for the nearest empty biobed, and deposits the unconscious man onto it ::
(22:41:51) LtAlexisWright: :: on a hunch, links McKnight's portable unit into her realtime life sign data :: +McKnight+ Colonel, in case you were... interested for any reason, I've linked you up with my realtime life signs. Just wanted to let you know it was available. Wright out.
(22:41:58) VAdmBlackthorne: Kate, maintain formation with their fleet at impulse, since that's all we've got.
(22:42:10) CdrHarper: Aye sir.
(22:42:11) DoctorTav: :: looks up from the biobed where he is working, noting Kuari's entrance. With the major work on this patient complete, he hands off the tricorder he is holding to a nurse and walks over to Kuari :: What's the story?
(22:45:39) VAdmBlackthorne: T'Kirr, once we have a full damage report, have engineering compile a list of raw materials that we'll need. Primarily for the hull breaches, I would imagine.
(22:46:58) LtKuari: :: shrinks out of the way so Tav can approach :: Unconscious. I don't know why. I smell no blood. Heart and breathing seems stable. Hit his head?
(22:47:10) ColDougMcKnight: :: Comes across a more severe burn case, thankfully minus the shrapnel. Thankfully, the patient is unconscious, as the spray can he takes to her after carefully cutting away clothing in the way would otherwise hurt like a bitch. But it combines a cooling agent with a powerful antiseptic to stave off infection. He then covers with gauze,
(22:47:35) VAdmBlackthorne: Also, I'll need a casualty report.
(22:48:09) ColDougMcKnight: follows up with a hypo solution of cordrazine to even out somewhat worrisome cardiac readings, and calls in the status and location. ::
(22:48:25) DoctorTav: :: scans the patient before him :: Yep. Concussion to the back of his head. It'll be easy to get him taken care of.
(22:49:16) CdrTKirr: Understood. :: proceeds with the orders at the console, collecting information for a report ::
(22:50:01) VAdmBlackthorne: :: hopes their damn war is worth it ::
(22:50:13) LtKuari: Good. I'd better go find someone else.
(22:53:43) VAdmBlackthorne: (Five minutes)
(22:54:19) ColDougMcKnight: :: Checks the information he was just sent against what security was relaying to see if there's anything more up to date. :: +Wright+ Acknowledged. Thanks.
(22:55:12) CdrTKirr: So far, twenty six have been reported wounded. Fifteen are critical. :: looks up :: Two fatal.
(22:55:22) LtAlexisWright: :: records an addendum to the Operations status report indicating that we're en route to a shipyard to get materials for repairs and that there is otherwise no change from the last report. ::
(22:55:42) VAdmBlackthorne: :: frowns :: Fortunate, considering the damage we've taken.
(22:56:38) CdrTKirr: The report is not yet complete. Much of the damage was to the secondary hull, away from workstations.
(22:57:10) CdrTKirr: Wounded are still being brought in. Standing by for a full report.
