(21:14:51) GM_James: Summary
(21:16:21) GM_James: The crew of the Atlantis has managed to beam a probe through the interference surrounding the facility from which this entire mishap appears to have begun, but it strangle receiving two sets of telemetry - One from the current situation and one from twelve hours in the past. More worrying, however, is that a subspace vacuole is forming within that 12-hour period that appears to have
(21:16:21) GM_James: been caused by the probe that was transported down.
(21:17:38) GM_James: <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Resume Mission >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
(21:21:16) CEO_Lt_Quinn [] entered the room.
(21:22:01) VAdmBlackthorne: Bridge: OK folks, we need to determine what nature of message we can trasmit, and in such a way that would be believable and convey what must be done.
(21:22:48) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: ::Laying down on the biobed in sickbay, reading current ship reports, hoping something arises where he'll be too useful to keep cooped up in sickbay.::
(21:22:50) XO_Cdr_TKirr: :: is currently manning Tactical, pondering the situation ::
(21:24:18) VAdmBlackthorne: Bridge: I think simple is best here.
(21:24:25) MED_Cadet_TylerSlade: :: walks into observation to see Ensign Ilihar's condition:: ENG: Good day Ensign how are you feeling, and be honest?
(21:24:26) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: monitors the situation on the planet and the probe ::
(21:24:51) mode (+v CEO_Lt_Quinn) by VAdmBlackthorne
(21:24:56) CMO_Dr_Tav: :: steps out of his office to check to make sure Ilaihr is not trying to escape. Satisfied that Slade is keeping him busy at least for a moment, he steps back into his office to catch up on some paperwork ::
(21:25:32) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: ::Peers up from the PADD he's reading to mee the doctor's eyes.:: MED: Like I could strangle you doctor, but otherwise fine.
(21:25:40) CSO_Lt_Wright: :: Also monitoring the planet and the probe, and wracking her brain for communications ideas ::
(21:26:06) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: MED: The same I was 3 hours ago... the same as 12 hours in fact....
(21:27:34) MED_Cadet_TylerSlade: ENG:: Oh good so your feeling like your gaining strength back. I am happy to hear your recovery is still going so smoothly ensign :: Smiles smugly as he checks the bio bed stats and force field generator::
(21:28:46) CEO_Lt_Quinn: :: Pauses a moment outside sickbay, frowning at his own trepidation, before squaring his shoulders and stepping through the doorway. ::
(21:28:54) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: MED: I have worked out a few methods of escape should I need them in a dire circumstance, but I'm still I can trick into letting me out.
(21:29:05) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: <Still hoping>
(21:29:25) XO_Cdr_TKirr: CO: They need proof to establish validity first. Then we can tell them what they must do.
(21:29:34) MED_Cadet_TylerSlade: ENG: Hope is good to have ensign
(21:29:44) VAdmBlackthorne: XO: I am going off the assumption that this will not be two-way communication.
(21:30:17) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: ::Notices Quinn enter sickbay:: CEO: Ah sir.... The doctor was just talking about you....
(21:30:39) CSO_Lt_Wright: Bridge: Can't we feed back the later video feed as proof that they need to do as we instruct?
(21:31:23) MED_Cadet_TylerSlade: :: turns to Lt Quinn:: CEO : Good day Lieutenant coming to check on our patient?
(21:32:06) XO_Cdr_TKirr: CSO: That would be adequate proof, I would think.
(21:32:13) CMO_Dr_Tav: :: hears the Sickbay doors open, sees Quinn walking in and decides he should probably be there for whatever happens, so he gets up and walks out of his office to close to Ilaihr's bed ::
(21:32:15) VAdmBlackthorne: CSO: I'm not sure how that would be interpreted, though.
(21:32:35) CSO_Lt_Wright: :: nods :: CO: It could be seen as a threat.
(21:33:05) CEO_Lt_Quinn: :: Nods :: MED: Yeah, in part. How's he doing?
(21:33:24) SCI_LtJG_TLira: Bridge: Perhaps making the message appear as if it were sent by their future selves may be a feasible option.
(21:33:31) VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods ::
(21:33:43) XO_Cdr_TKirr: :: perks eyebrow ::
(21:33:47) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: ::Remember's an occasion similar to this with a Cardassian Gul.::
(21:34:09) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: CEO: I'm doing fine sir.
(21:34:41) VAdmBlackthorne: SCI: Interesting - they don't know yet who they're talking to in the message.
(21:35:20) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: CEO: And despite knowing nearly a dozen languages fluently, it doesn't appear any iteration of them can convey that fact to the dear doctor.
(21:35:21) CEO_Lt_Quinn: :: Stays silent and just keeps looking expectantly to Tav and Slade. ::
(21:35:29) MED_Cadet_TylerSlade: CEO: He is doing better sir after the surgery. It will just take some time for total Recouperating. We also want to make sure that the regenerated tissue doesn't fail so we are monitoring his progress.
(21:36:34) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: ::Mumbles:: Self: Keeping me locked up here like an old man or lunatic, without even the decency to sedate me for the next 72 hours.....
(21:36:39) MED_Cadet_TylerSlade: :: looks to Tav for confirmation of his report to Lt Quinn:
(21:37:33) VAdmBlackthorne: Bridge: Could we somehow scramble the origin of the transmission?
(21:37:34) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: Self: I never was one for prison cells and being held against my will....
(21:39:15) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: ::Lays back and starts reading the PADD, still mumbling.:: Self: Atleastthe Breen give you algae paste....
(21:39:46) MED_Cadet_TylerSlade: CEO: is everything else alright Lieutenant Quinn you look rather concerned? :: looking at the CEO intently::
(21:40:43) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: CEO: I would be happy to repair anything you need help with sir.....
(21:40:57) XO_Cdr_TKirr: CO: I believe would make it look as if temporal damage was done to the signature of the file, if we...slightly corrupt the video quality.
(21:41:26) CMO_Dr_Tav: :: nods along to everything Slade says ::
(21:41:27) CEO_Lt_Quinn: :: Looks back up at Slade, clearly a bit distracted, but smiles amiably. :: MED Not so far as your end. Thank you for taking such expert care of him. Means a lot, job or not. But I WAS wondering if we could maybe get a little privacy for just a minute.
(21:41:54) VAdmBlackthorne: Hmmmm. XO: This might still be too complicated. CSO: Can we get readings of the normal state of the reactor through the probe?
(21:42:30) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: ::Ears perk up at the sound of the word 'Privacy'.::
(21:42:45) MED_Cadet_TylerSlade: CEO: Absolutely sir I'll be over here at the Med station if you need anything :: walks back to the MED station::
(21:42:46) CSO_Lt_Wright: CO: Let me see. Stand by. :: taps at the keys and looks through the probe telemetry ::
(21:43:26) CMO_Dr_Tav: CEO: Of course, Lieutenant. ::walks back to his office ::
(21:44:03) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: ::Looks around at the where the forcefield generators are; really wanting to try to escape.::
(21:45:20) CSO_Lt_Wright: CO: Yes, sir, we can get those readings.
(21:45:51) VAdmBlackthorne: Bridge: Then perhaps a simple before-after comparison, with timestamps, of key data points.
(21:46:17) CEO_Lt_Quinn: CMO, MED: Appreciate it, docs!
(21:46:28) CSO_Lt_Wright: :: nods :: CO: That could work.
(21:46:43) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: All: You can let me out any time y'know. I wont stop you....
(21:46:48) XO_Cdr_TKirr: :: nods in agreement when looked at ::
(21:47:00) CEO_Lt_Quinn: :: Waits another moment or two, then sighs and taps the forcefield into life. :: ENG: Well, Doctor Tav already sent me his full report. Only fair, I suppose. How do YOU want to explain this?
(21:47:28) VAdmBlackthorne: Bridge: Gather the data and prepare it for transmission. Reactor pressure/temperature/output, all of that.
(21:47:43) CSO_Lt_Wright: CO: Aye, Sir.
(21:49:56) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: CEO: Hmm, well; My old body got a bit bruised, but I am feeling much better again, albeit cooped up and extremely agitated by it.
(21:51:20) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: CEO: I've spent more time locked up in here then I have ever been; even by people who have on many occasions sworn to kill me.
(21:53:19) MED_Cadet_TylerSlade left the room (quit: Quit: ajax IRC Client).
(21:54:03) CEO_Lt_Quinn: ENG: And they felt the force field was necessary why?
(21:54:33) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: makes a minor orbital correction to correct for their precession, and then starts looking through probe data out of habit ::
(21:54:37) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: CEO: Because I would have certainly escaped without a single moment's notice.
(21:55:20) MED_Cadet_TylerSlade [] entered the room.
(21:56:04) CEO_Lt_Quinn: ENG: Okay, let me stop you there. I'm afraid we have a problem here, ensign.

(21:57:12) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: CEO: I believe it has sufficiently entertained the doctors.
(21:57:49) CEO_Lt_Quinn: ENG: Glad to hear it. But I'm kind of pissed.
(21:58:49) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: CEO: I can see that lieutenant. Take a seat, let's talk about that.
(21:59:26) CSO_Lt_Wright: CO: I have the data timestamped and ready, Sir.
(21:59:39) VAdmBlackthorne: Transmit.
(22:00:18) XO_Cdr_TKirr: :: takes a deep breath and waits, watching ::
(22:00:31) CSO_Lt_Wright: Bridge: Transmitting. :: taps a few keys and waits ::
(22:00:40) VAdmBlackthorne: :: leans on the chair arm, Kirk-style ::
(22:00:46) CEO_Lt_Quinn: :: Makes no move to move from his current position. :: ENG: Sure, let's talk. Question. You mentioned to me once that you weren't entirely certain where you fit in here. So let me ask you this. Having had some time to think on it, do you want special treatment here?
(22:01:31) GM_James: @ACTION: Unbeknownst to the Atlantis crew, the staff at the facility receive an odd communication from an unknown source and set about identifying and decoding it.
(22:03:53) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: ::Thinks about the question, and the tone, his eyes pondering at Quinn.:: CEO: I want to be able to do my job Lieutenant.
(22:04:08) XO_Cdr_TKirr: :: feels a sudden urge to brush up on the history of temporal events in the database ::
(22:06:02) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: CEO: As for special treatment; that is very much dependant on what you want sir. I have no strong feelings inclined either way. Perhaps you issue goes beyond your question, and there is more you wish to say.
(22:06:40) VAdmBlackthorne: Bridge: I suppose I expected some sort of instant change, had it worked.
(22:07:22) SCI_LtJG_TLira left the room (quit: Quit: ajax IRC Client).
(22:07:40) XO_Cdr_TKirr: XO: Indeed. It's...unclear what to expect.
(22:07:41) CEO_Lt_Quinn: ENG: Let me be completely certain I understand what you mean. You want to do the job of a Star Fleet engineer? On this ship? In my engine room?
(22:07:45) XO_Cdr_TKirr: CO:
(22:10:03) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: CEO: Considering my recent injuryand to apease the doctors; it would be wiser to have me on limited duty. Helping to co-ordinate engineering or relaying information from the bridge.
(22:10:11) CSO_Lt_Wright: CO: Sir, the vacuole... seems to be expanding. At a rate of .0005 nanometers per minute.
(22:10:30) CEO_Lt_Quinn: ENG: No.
(22:10:50) VAdmBlackthorne: CSO: What are the practical effects of that?
(22:11:15) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: ::Sighs, just not understanding the lieutenant.::
(22:13:40) CEO_Lt_Quinn: ENG: I din't mean in the near term. I mean that as it stands now, if this is the way you choose to behave, I'm just not certain I have ANY use for you. And while I'll happily ask around for you, I'm not optimistic you'll have much better luck elsewhere in the fleet.
(22:14:11) CSO_Lt_Wright: CO: Well, Sir, I'm really not sure. It all depends on what the vacuole is or contains or connects to.
(22:14:29) MED_Cadet_TylerSlade: ::Walks into CMO office and hands him patient care report PADD:: CMO: Here are the reports of all of our patients current statuses
(22:14:40) CEO_Lt_Quinn: ENG: Would it be fair to say that's worth your attention, ensign?
(22:15:50) VAdmBlackthorne: CSO: Which set of readings show the vacuole?
(22:18:33) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: ::Glances over from the Padd he's reading.:: CEO: My attention is firmly focussed on this ship and the chaotic condition of the planet below, as your's should be lieutenant. Instead of coming here to allow me to help with our efforts or to even to ask for possible options, you come in here to threaten my place on this ship.
(22:18:36) CSO_Lt_Wright: CO: The past, Sir.
(22:19:29) VAdmBlackthorne: Bridge: That could be what causes the accident. They may not know that it's there. Can we transmit sensor data on it through the probe?
(22:19:53) CSO_Lt_Wright: We can certainly try. Shall I do so?
(22:19:56) CSO_Lt_Wright: CO:
(22:20:41) VAdmBlackthorne: CSO: Yes, do it. Maybe that's the key.
(22:20:50) CSO_Lt_Wright: :: does so ::
(22:21:58) CMO_Dr_Tav: :: looks at the reports Slade hands him :: MED: Thank you, Doctor.
(22:22:33) MED_Cadet_TylerSlade: :: Nods and leaves the CMO office and returns to MED station::
(22:23:24) VAdmBlackthorne: :: waits again, uncertain what to expect ::
(22:23:26) ENG_Ens_Ilaihr: MED: Doctor, I'm feeling unwell.
(22:23:55) CEO_Lt_Quinn: ENG: I'm up to speed and in touch, and engineering is in good hands for the few minutes I decided to allot. It seemed like a sensible commitment, given your ability and experience. But none of that is worth anything if you can't manage a realistic grasp of your own limitations. And still less for someone who expects me to hold him exempt from the chain of command and protocol. Good as you are, you're NOT doing your job. But I'm
(22:24:01) CSO_Lt_Wright: CO: Sir, now that I've transmitted the data, the vacuole has expanded further... the rate has increased by a factor of 10.
