Conversation with #ussatlantis at Wed Sep 18 20:59:33 2013 on (irc)

(20:59:34) The topic for #USSAtlantis is: 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

(20:59:43) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya
(20:59:52) ColDougMcKnight: Evening.
(21:00:12) ColDougMcKnight: And congrats on the home ownership!
(21:00:30) VAdmBlackthorne: Thank you!
(21:01:27) VAdmBlackthorne: Moving this weekend.
(21:01:36) VAdmBlackthorne: Also, check yer IM
(21:06:06) LtAlexisWright [] entered the room.
(21:06:21) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya
(21:06:28) LtAlexisWright: Hay
(21:14:39) ColDougMcKnight: Hoy.
(21:15:00) VAdmBlackthorne: Hey.
(21:16:58) DoctorTav [] entered the room.
(21:17:15) DoctorTav: Hey guys. Sorry, I was preoccupied with my wife flying to Oregon
(21:19:43) DoctorTav: In her travels, she has had several comments on her TARDIS beanie.
(21:21:24) VAdmBlackthorne: It's a beanie for a TARDIS?
(21:22:14) DoctorTav: Yep. Keeps her head warm, and it's bigger on the inside, I'm pretty sure. She tried it on at the store and was walking around with it on and I knew she had to have it.
(21:25:25) LtAlexisWright: I think the important question here is why she's flying to Oregon instead of just taking her beanie.
(21:25:56) VAdmBlackthorne: That's a good question.
(21:26:08) DoctorTav: That's a very good question.
(21:26:20) DoctorTav: Here's what it looksl ike
(21:26:23) DoctorTav:
(21:26:46) DoctorTav: So now I need this one to go with:
(21:27:16) LtAlexisWright: Exterminate
(21:27:57) DoctorTav:
(21:30:14) LtAlexisWright: I have this hat.
(21:30:31) VAdmBlackthorne: God, why.
(21:30:37) VAdmBlackthorne: I MEAN wow that's cute
(21:31:37) VAdmBlackthorne: No sim tonight, though you're welcome to hang around and throw ideas at the wall about generating story content. I'm still creatively dead with no enthusiasm left, which results in shitty plots like the one we're wrapping up now.
(21:32:04) LtAlexisWright: Because my husband got it for me as a surprise present after we finished watching Bob's Burgers because he knows I like to wear things on my head.
(21:32:04) VAdmBlackthorne: It's not fair to any of y'all to subject you to this drought.
(21:32:50) DoctorTav: Well, I've had the one idea that I sent you. Funny, since before you needed some ideas I was always coming up with them.
(21:36:12) DoctorTav: I am listening to Liz's flight on the wayto the runway. Yay for
(21:36:41) DoctorTav: Just cleared for takeoff
(21:36:55) VAdmBlackthorne: Roger that
(21:40:02) LtAlexisWright: We are tasked with building a signal relay in this newly-explored area. We have approval from the locals, the site has been chosen, but it's in the middle of an interplanetary whaling ground and the clashes between the whales and the protesters are fucking with our juju... and also the whales can talk telepathically but they only talk about tennis.
(21:40:22) LtAlexisWright: ONLY TENNIS.
(21:40:52) VAdmBlackthorne: Now those are some boring whales.
(21:41:04) LtAlexisWright: But they talk like auctioneers, so that's something
(21:43:54) LtAlexisWright: We land on some planet for a meet and greet and realize too late that they're a patriarchy and way offended by how women are treated as equals. They kidnap the women, because clearly it's our fault, and set about "reconditioning" us to be proper fem-slaves.
(21:44:34) VAdmBlackthorne: Of whales.
(21:44:55) LtAlexisWright: No, there's no tennis in this scenario.
(21:45:46) VAdmBlackthorne: And I thought having to wear the TOS miniskirts got a reaction.
(21:47:06) LtAlexisWright: We're in disguise on a planet doing some recon, there's a commotion and weapons fire, a crowd comes running toward us, some random dirty lady shoves a baby into someone's arms and takes off.
(21:47:46) LtAlexisWright: (someone's arms = the arms of someone from Atlantis)
(21:49:56) LtAlexisWright: A shuttle that McKnight is piloting crash-lands on a primitive planet and he is worshipped like a god.
(21:52:59) LtAlexisWright: T'Kirr is sitting on the bridge and bright white light suddenly starts shining out of her mouth and eyes and she speaks a prophecy that was clearly meant for the inhabitants of a nearby moon, meaning we've interfered with how they progress even if we do nothing.
(21:53:52) LtAlexisWright: We send Tav to the holodeck to physically duke it out with the EMH.
(21:54:01) VAdmBlackthorne: Ha, that would be a good one.
(21:54:29) DoctorTav: Long as the EMH loses
(21:54:50) DoctorTav: In fact, I don't think it can be close.
(21:54:55) DoctorTav: Even if we have to tie him down
(21:55:56) VAdmBlackthorne: Please state the nature of the ass-whooping emergency.
(21:57:15) LtAlexisWright: My work here is done.
(21:57:18) LtAlexisWright: <3
(21:57:21) LtAlexisWright left the room (quit: Quit: ajax IRC Client).
(21:58:43) DoctorTav: For those interested, Liz's flight is on final approach into Portlan
(21:58:54) DoctorTav: Portland
(21:59:29) DoctorTav: As far as ideas, let me get through training. I am learning my 3-hour... err, 90-minute tour.
(21:59:35) VAdmBlackthorne: I take it the flight wasn't from Orlando. :V
(21:59:37) DoctorTav: After that I should be creative again
(21:59:40) DoctorTav: Seattle
(22:00:29) DoctorTav: Long day. MCO - DFW - SEA - PDX
(22:01:05) VAdmBlackthorne: Yeah
(22:01:15) VAdmBlackthorne: Fair enough Doc
(22:03:40) DoctorTav: Well, I will see you all next week, with more ideas texted when I get them
(22:03:46) VAdmBlackthorne: Cool, thank you
(22:03:58) DoctorTav left the room.
