Conversation with #ussatlantis at Wed Nov 20 21:00:34 2013 on (irc)

(21:00:34) The topic for #ussatlantis is: So, as per the invite we got last time, we have been making out way at an even more leisurely warp 2 toward the coordinates Miraak provided. Since then, as indicated, we've been joined by a pair of smaller escort ships. Respectably armed, but nothing to alarm whoever's standing at tactical. Spidey sense is quiet as we enter the home stretch.

(21:00:34) LtCmdrBusard [] entered the room.
(21:00:46) CdrTKirr: You see that how?
(21:00:53) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya folks
(21:00:56) LtCmdrBusard: Hello!
(21:01:01) CdrTKirr: Hi Jason, Rachel
(21:01:03) VAdmBlackthorne: So many here and on time even!
(21:01:26) CdrTKirr: Yayhray!
(21:01:26) ColDougMcKnight: I know. Weird.
(21:01:36) LtCmdrBusard: Super Weird.
(21:01:52) LtCmdrBusard: *suspicious*
(21:02:17) VAdmBlackthorne: It's like a birthday gift. :D
(21:02:29) CdrTKirr: Omg is it your birthday? *checks calendar*
(21:02:36) LtCmdrBusard: Oh, well that's good!
(21:02:46) VAdmBlackthorne: Yep :)
(21:02:47) LtCmdrBusard: Also IS it your birthday?
(21:02:54) LtCmdrBusard: Dude! Mine was last Tuesday.
(21:02:57) LtWright: Haaaaaaappy BERFDAY!
(21:02:59) ColDougMcKnight: So, sorry about the no alien stuff! I meant to, but...the site people are apparently retarded. If you like, though, I will take a minute and PM a few goodies to the people most likely to learn them in game first.
(21:03:00) LtCmdrBusard: Happy Birthday!
(21:03:09) VAdmBlackthorne: Thank you!
(21:03:13) ColDougMcKnight: And hey, I can even send one to you in particular, Admiral!
(21:03:18) VAdmBlackthorne: Ooo
(21:03:20) CdrTKirr: My iPhone didn't tell me and now I feel bad. >_< Happy birthday!
(21:03:48) DoctorTav: So Rachel, happy birthday last week. Jason, happy birthday n ow!
(21:03:53) CdrHarper [] entered the room.
(21:03:59) VAdmBlackthorne: Thank you! :D
(21:04:05) LtCmdrBusard: Thank you!
(21:04:41) LtCmdrBusard: So Jason, how old? :-P I turned the horrifying age of 24.
(21:04:43) VAdmBlackthorne: Happy late-birthday Rachel :)
(21:04:48) VAdmBlackthorne: 34
(21:05:07) CdrTKirr: 24's horrifying? Pssh...what does that make me...
(21:05:08) LtCmdrBusard: Sweet! We (sort of) match! :-P
(21:05:27) CdrTKirr: Oh wait, that's not in Vulcan years, whew
(21:05:34) LtCmdrBusard: Lol
(21:06:05) DoctorTav: Well, to T'Kirr, I say she is better looking now than she was at 24. I have the pictures to prove it. I can't wait until she's 55 and we can move to The Villages.
(21:06:18) CdrTKirr: Aw... =P
(21:06:29) CdrTKirr: That's...strangely sweet.
(21:06:40) LtCmdrBusard: That is adorable!
(21:06:46) VAdmBlackthorne: Awww

(21:08:14) VAdmBlackthorne: My lady got me a piece of the Chelyabinsk meteor.
(21:08:28) CdrTKirr: Aw really?
(21:08:37) DoctorTav: NICE!
(21:08:50) VAdmBlackthorne: Yeah, before Russia made it illegal to export, a bunch got out and ended up on ThinkGeek
(21:09:04) CdrTKirr: Best. Site. Evar.
(21:09:13) VAdmBlackthorne: Pretty neat gift.
(21:09:25) LtCmdrBusard: Damn! That lady of yours is awesome.
(21:09:25) CdrTKirr: Very
(21:09:31) VAdmBlackthorne: She is :)
(21:09:43) CdrTKirr: Yeah she's totally cool =D
(21:10:24) CdrTKirr: Rachel are you totally getting Monday off?
(21:11:05) LtCmdrBusard: I have every day off. Because I'm unemployed :-P
(21:11:10) LtCmdrBusard: So YES
(21:11:16) CdrTKirr: Okay well...did you buy your tickets? =X
(21:11:25) DoctorTav: So are you coming to Florida to see it with us?
(21:11:59) LtCmdrBusard: I appear to be rather out of ze loop. What is happening Monday?
(21:12:04) CdrTKirr: Some guy who looks a bit like Tav will be in it...
(21:12:19) CdrTKirr: Doctor Who 50th Anniversary in 3D theaters omg
(21:12:23) DoctorTav: (Does she know what my character looks like?)
(21:12:30) CdrTKirr: (Maybe not)
(21:12:38) DoctorTav: Is omg all you have to say about it?
(21:12:53) DoctorTav: Maybe capitalize on that statement a little bit? There ya go.
(21:13:07) VAdmBlackthorne: Seems about right.
(21:13:14) LtCmdrBusard: Ahhh, alas, no. We're kinda in a tight spot financially right now.
(21:13:22) CdrTKirr: Ooh I'm sorry. =(
(21:13:27) ColDougMcKnight: Bear with me. PMing.
(21:13:33) CdrTKirr: At least watch it air on 23rd...
(21:13:53) LtCmdrBusard: It's cool! I will totally see it on TV.
(21:13:55) CdrTKirr: I can't see in theaters 23rd when it airs because the closest is in the next state I must wait two days.
(21:14:18) LtCmdrBusard: Oh, theatres. Hm, maybe.
(21:14:24) LtCmdrBusard: I will have to see.
(21:14:28) VAdmBlackthorne: Hobbit next month :)
(21:14:30) CdrTKirr: Tickets might be sold out
(21:14:37) LtCmdrBusard: HOBBIT HOBBIT HOBBIT
(21:14:44) CdrTKirr: Looking way forward to that too =D
(21:14:50) LtCmdrBusard: A:SLITENKdif;kl;lkjfskfh!!!
(21:14:54) CdrTKirr: lol
(21:15:19) LtCmdrBusard: *Ahem hem* I mean, uh, I am excited to see that film.
(21:16:30) VAdmBlackthorne: Me too me too
(21:16:39) LtCmdrBusard: *goes and listens to the Misty Mountain song again*
(21:16:51) VAdmBlackthorne: Tam made me a birfday cake made of chocolate and Guinness.
(21:17:02) ColDougMcKnight: Wright, PM.
(21:17:12) CdrTKirr: Haha nice!
(21:17:20) ColDougMcKnight: Tav as well, for that matter.
(21:18:09) VAdmBlackthorne: Consider that when I play Civ5 and found my religion, it's always Guinnessism.
(21:18:41) ColDougMcKnight: Nice.
(21:18:48) CdrTKirr: Afraid I don't understand the reference. =X
(21:18:58) VAdmBlackthorne: The beer
(21:19:41) VAdmBlackthorne: From the brewery in Dublin founded by Our Father Arthur Guinness.
(21:20:01) CdrTKirr: I get the Guinness reference...not the Civ5
(21:20:15) LtCmdrBusard: Lol
(21:20:55) CdrTKirr: Anyone else note how Jason exclaims that we're all here on time, then we still don't start? =P
(21:20:58) VAdmBlackthorne: Ah, you play a civilization from 4000BC to past modern day
(21:21:09) VAdmBlackthorne: Waiting on Mike to finish the behind the scenes.
(21:21:18) CdrTKirr: Okay yes it's a game, but Civ5 =
(21:21:29) CdrTKirr: Oh right. I wasn't privy to the IMs.
(21:22:19) VAdmBlackthorne: Well you can found your own religion and name it.
(21:22:33) VAdmBlackthorne: You can go with the standar world religions too, but Guinnessism is much better.
(21:23:54) VAdmBlackthorne: Instead of holy wars, we go to the pub.
(21:24:28) ColDougMcKnight: Okay, I think we're ready to give this a try.
(21:24:30) LtCmdrBusard: Maybe get into a bar fight though.
(21:24:42) LtCmdrBusard: But that's traditional ritual.
(21:24:43) VAdmBlackthorne: Yeah but it's all good after the fight.
(21:24:58) VAdmBlackthorne: Alrighty then let
(21:25:00) DoctorTav: Stand by for the whistle

(21:27:45) ColDougMcKnight has changed the topic to: When last we left our heroes, Atlantis was docked with one of the alien ships, though they'd put themselves between us and their flotilla as a show of good faith. A small delegation from the "League of Xe" has come aboard. The initial greeting concluded with no shots fired, we're on the way to the main conference room.
(21:29:26) ColDougMcKnight: Questions?
(21:29:30) VAdmBlackthorne: None here.
(21:30:07) CdrTKirr: No.
(21:30:58) LtCmdrBusard: Do any of them have suspicious mustaches?
(21:31:45) VAdmBlackthorne: What about unsuspicious moustaches?
(21:31:52) VAdmBlackthorne: It is Movember, after all.
(21:32:17) ColDougMcKnight: Two of the six aboard are wearing suits that obscure their faces. Of the remaining, we've yet to see any evidence that they grow facial hair.
(21:32:52) ColDougMcKnight: Up to you whether that's suspicious!
(21:32:55) ColDougMcKnight: Anyone else?

(21:41:00) VAdmBlackthorne: :: chuckles :: It can be a bit of a circus sometimes.
(21:43:19) ColDougMcKnight: M> :: Looks on quizically, no perfect translation presenting itself for that. :: I suppose so. It's just that so far, I've mostly just seen...whatever your people call themselves. Except for you of course, Commander T'Kirr. Do the others not enjoy space travel?
(21:44:52) CdrTKirr: :: doesn't appear to respond ::
(21:44:58) VAdmBlackthorne: Well, I am actually half Betazoid, half human. Though humans do seem to show up more often in our Starfleet, that may be because we are based on the human homeworld.
(21:46:52) ColDougMcKnight: M> :: Sounds it out slowly, as if trying to get a feel for the word. :: Human. So they...manage the Federation?

(21:51:48) CdrTKirr: :: files out, taking in the Bridge quickly before returning her attention to the guests ::
(21:51:50) ColDougMcKnight: M> :: Looks to the envirosuited figure to his left, only to frown after a few moments of silence and redirect his attention to the bridge. :: Impressive. Are all Federation ships so generously furnished?
(21:53:11) VAdmBlackthorne: ::: nods :: Commander. :: directing everyone to the conference room :: NO, the Atlantis is one of our flagships, and an example of one of our most advanced ships.
(21:57:08) VAdmBlackthorne: :: with a hint of pride ::
(21:57:18) ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> The second lift comes up, depositing the rest of the alien delegation, and the entire extended group files in. Only at Blackthorne's last comment does one of the faceless aliens speak up, its voice a bit tinny from the suit's onboard audio system. "Oh? How fast?"
(22:00:32) CdrTKirr: :: is surprised to hear the faceless one speak ::
(22:01:20) LtCmdrBusard: :: Looks to the Admiral, figuring he's probably the one to keep up the dialogue, but thinks to herself that it can go pretty damn fast, thanks very much.::

(22:04:49) ColDougMcKnight: M> ::Nods to his delagation, who all settle onto their side of the long table. ::
(22:06:15) VAdmBlackthorne: Please to meet you.

(22:08:32) ColDougMcKnight: M> Moving on, her second, Yesh, and a few representatives of the Telthis Company's security division. First of all, you have our thanks for the welcome, and your cooperation thus far. Beyond that, we should probably get to business.
(22:09:11) ColDougMcKnight: M> Basically, we're very eager to know just where this human world you came from is, and whether we should expect to be seeing any more of you.
(22:11:21) CdrTKirr: (Trying to follow...Fedan and Yesh are the suited, or those are security?)
(22:11:41) VAdmBlackthorne: :: to T'Kirr :: Commander, please put a map of the galaxy with the Federation borders up on the display.
(22:12:11) CdrTKirr: :: does so ::
(22:12:16) ColDougMcKnight: (The suited. Sorry, that was unclear. The quiet ones of Miraak's species, the ones with the grey face paint, are the security guys. Miraak works with them. )
(22:13:09) VAdmBlackthorne: :: points to the "you are here" arrow :: We are, as you see, far from home. This is because of our advanced propulsion. The answer to your second question is entirely up to you. The Federation stays away from where it is not welcome.
(22:14:33) ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> The entire alien delegation remains silent, but even those without advanced empathic abilities can will note a sudden tension in the room.
(22:14:58) ColDougMcKnight: Miraak> That's...and it took you how long to get out here?
(22:16:24) LtWright left the room (quit: Quit: ajax IRC Client).
(22:16:36) VAdmBlackthorne: I cannot give a precise answer, but not long at all.
(22:17:00) LtWright [] entered the room.
(22:17:30) VAdmBlackthorne: (WB)
(22:17:46) LtWright: (sorry)
(22:20:10) CdrHarper: :: still carefully monitoring Atlantis's flight while docked to the Xe ship ::
(22:21:00) ColDougMcKnight: Miraak> Well, that's...pretty much what we were afraid we'd hear. In that case, I'm forced to ask another question. You already said you encountered the Red Sun Confederacy. What happened, exactly?
(22:21:29) CdrTKirr: :: raises surreptitous eyebrow ::
(22:23:11) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sighs :: Unfortunately, we arrived in the middle of a civil war and were attacked by ships of the Confederacy. We had no desire to aid either side in that conflict, as it was not our fight.
(22:24:04) VAdmBlackthorne: The rebel faction gave us safe haven to make necessary repairs, but the Confederacy found their hidden base and a large battle ensued.
(22:25:05) VAdmBlackthorne: After that battle, we left and came here. Our mission is one of exploration.
(22:25:42) CdrTKirr: :: looks from Blackthorne's explanation to the guests' response ::
(22:26:29) LtWright: :: does the same ::
(22:26:46) ColDougMcKnight: Fedan> ::Leans forward toward Blackthorne. :: And your systems? Did any of their technicians ever have access to them? Propulsion in particular?
(22:27:49) VAdmBlackthorne: Ah, you're worried about whether or not they acquired any of our technology? I can assure you, the answer is no.
(22:30:04) LtCmdrBusard: :: Bristles at the idea of letting someone at their propulsion systems. She tries not to fidget too much, and knows the questions aren't out of the ordinary, but responds involutarily, nonetheless::
(22:30:15) ColDougMcKnight: Miraak> It's...not just that. We should probably back up a little. You'll recall I told you as we came aboard that our ships are faster than theirs. That wasn't just some idle observation. It's the entire reason why this league exists to begin with.
(22:30:59) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods :: I take it they're a bit a problem to the rest of this area of the galaxy?
(22:31:28) ColDougMcKnight: Miraak> You could say that. You didn't find it odd that their ships never broke warp 2? That didn't seem...a little more lackluster than their level of technology in general?
(22:32:04) VAdmBlackthorne: Now that you mention it, yes.
(22:33:59) ColDougMcKnight: Miraak> That's because they could almost certainly do better. A lot better. The problem is that red sun of theirs, and what its radiation does to unshielded dilithium crystal deposits.
(22:35:21) VAdmBlackthorne: :: looks to Busard and Wright, then back to Miraak :: That makes a lot sense.
(22:35:42) LtWright: :: nodding ::
(22:40:03) ColDougMcKnight: Miraak> Unfortunately, what they lack in speed, they make up for in population, industrial base, and sheer fanaticism. If you came out here alone, it's a good thing you got out before they could mobilize proper reinforcements. Their sphere of influence steadily expanded for centuries, to the point that about 85 years ago, they were on the cusp of solving
(22:40:35) ColDougMcKnight: that little problem of theirs. At the expense of every single species in their way. Until the Xe stepped in.
(22:40:44) LtCmdrBusard: :: Nods ::
(22:43:07) VAdmBlackthorne: So the League is about containing the Red Suns?
(22:43:52) ColDougMcKnight: Fedan> :: Sighs :: Our technology is more than a point of pride. It was ever a point of necessity. Planets naturally meeting our specific living requirements are...rare, and terraforming is neither easy, nor quick. Our ships were unrivalled for speed, but we knew they were on the cusp of discovering new dilithium deposits. Untainted. And we could not run
(22:44:30) ColDougMcKnight: forever. So we made a different decision. Contraversial at the time, but up until now, it has served us well.
(22:45:53) VAdmBlackthorne: :: remembers the raised heat and humidity in the room and can't un-notice it ::
(22:46:02) VAdmBlackthorne: How do you manage this?
(22:47:09) LtWright: :: pours herself a glass of ice water from one of the pitchers on the table, hoping she's seen as a trendsetter rather than rude ::
(22:47:35) CdrHarper: :: is quite comfy on the bridge ::
(22:47:54) LtWright: :: imagines that it's quite comfy on the bridge ::
(22:48:01) ColDougMcKnight: Miraak> Basically, they helped the rest of us catch up to them. Upgrade our ships. In return, we share our labor, our resources, and our star charts. We all colonize our zones around Red Sun space, and send our ships out looking for dilithium deposits. Whenever we find any, we converge on it like Greyva hornets and strip mine it, leaving nothing behind.
(22:49:03) VAdmBlackthorne: :: pours an ice water as well, and offers some to the guests ::
(22:49:18) ColDougMcKnight: Miraak> We divide it up evenly, and the Red Suns get nothing. We're still in range of their ships, but thanks to the Great Frontier Wall you stumbled upon, we can see them coming, and scramble as many ships as we need from all over to beat them back.
(22:50:38) ColDougMcKnight: Miraak> ::Takes the offered glass absent-mindedly. :: So, you see, as long as they're slow, they're manageable. Well, in combination with the fact they don't know where our actual homeworlds are. Except for the one, of course.
(22:50:56) VAdmBlackthorne: Have they attacked it?
(22:53:17) ColDougMcKnight: Miraak> Oh, yes. That's how the League was formally founded. The Confederacy has already subjugated the Jarfa...almost 400 solar years ago. The rest of us pooled everything we could afford, and managed to liberate them. Five became six.
(22:53:49) VAdmBlackthorne: I can see why you would wish to contain them.
(22:55:36) ColDougMcKnight: Miraak> You haven't met them yet, but as I indicated earlier, they have ships on the way. In all likelihood, the League wouldn't work without the Jarfa. They're...maybe a little like the humans are to your Federation. They're under the greatest threat, so they make the greatest commitment. Nobody has more ships out there. But that also makes them part of
(22:55:43) ColDougMcKnight: the problem now.
(22:56:50) VAdmBlackthorne: How so?
(22:57:25) VAdmBlackthorne: (Also, five minutes)
(22:58:02) LtCmdrBusard: (*munches popcorn eagerly*)
(22:59:07) ColDougMcKnight: Miraak> Well, they're the most numerous, but also the most...volatile. Like I said, they're under the greatest threat. If the Red Suns DO mount a major offensive, the Jarfa are the ones who will take the most abuse before they can be repulsed. A fair few of them are sick of living like that, and keep pushing for us to simply hit first. Attack with
(23:00:22) ColDougMcKnight: everything we've got. The rest of people, the Ahn Sat'i in particular, tend to think that would be a disaster, however it ended, and we've always been able to restrain that element. With some difficulty. But we're worried it would just take another little push to upset that.
(23:01:07) LtWright: :: nods slowly, understanding the monkey wrench they have inadvertently become ::
(23:01:17) VAdmBlackthorne: So... we might be that push?
(23:03:44) ColDougMcKnight: Newcomers, with ships so fast it blows anything we've got out of the stars? Who have already reached an agreement of some sort with the rebel faction, and may be open to further negotiations of some sort? Yes, I'd say that could be a problem. I'm not saying any of us would be right in having that fear. But can you really blame us?
