(09:22:17 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: We are approaching the Helix nebula, sir. Our target location to drop out of warp is about 2 minutes away.
(09:22:23 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: already prepped to begin scanning the nebula ::
(09:22:48 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Excellent, proceed as planned.

(09:24:01 PM) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::glances up, pushing his PADD to one side and nodding:: MED: I was about to ask the same thing. Take a seat, Tyler. ::gestures to the stool::

(09:25:29 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Realizes that he is Tyler again and not Ensign, a good sign, takes the seat:: CMO: How may I be of assistance Sir?
(09:25:36 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: starts immediately passive scanning the nebula ::
(09:25:56 PM) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: MED: I'll let you start; what did you need to see me for?
(09:26:00 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> @::Is sitting alone in the corner, having nursed the same drink for over an hour.::
(09:26:25 PM) LO_LCdr_Wright: * :: looks around for any of the other STAR team members, noting Douglas in the corner.
(09:26:49 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: @<MCS_LtJG_Sarissa> :: glaring at her PADD, trying to write these cursed profiles that someone at Medical seems so insistent on getting ::
(09:27:15 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: CMO: I was curious if you had time to review my report, and if there is anything further that you expect of me? Being that I have been doing the Beta and Delta shifts Sir. I am trying to make sure that I am performing as expected.
(09:27:26 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: SCENE> The nebula gases are beautiful hues of light blue and orange, swirling about. All seems quiet in here.
(09:28:24 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: sees nothing nearby, so opens up on active scans ::
(09:29:13 PM) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: peering at scans, sees nothing out of the ordinary ::
(09:29:17 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: I think I've finally done it sir. I have finally matched the ship's signal on the decoy tags.
(09:29:20 PM) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::nods, glancing at the PADD he'd been reading:: MED: I had, it was well put together. You'll remain on Beta and Delta shifts, however.
(09:29:30 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: SCI: Anything in here?
(09:29:42 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: If I am not mistaken, from here we decided to insert into normal shipping channels and fly stealthy, is that still the plan?
(09:29:45 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: CO: As far as I can tell, no.
(09:30:01 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Indeed. Along with a bit of misdirection...
(09:30:10 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: CMO: Understood sir, Now that is out of the way how might I be of service Commander?
(09:30:45 PM) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::leans forward on the desk, clasping his hands together and staring Slade down:: MED: When was your last contraceptive shot, Tyler?
(09:31:35 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ENG: Get them ready for launch then, that's coming soon.
(09:32:02 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: CMO: I see you also reviewed my log from the the small ship mission, sir
(09:32:03 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Bridge: This is our last stop folks, any more bright ideas, now's the time.
(09:33:10 PM) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::raises an eyebrow slightly:: MED: That doesn't answer my question. I went through your records and I couldn't find clearance from your commanding officer to stop getting your shots - and seeing as he'd have to talk to me if you'd applied, I'm sure I'd have remembered it.
(09:33:41 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: CO: Perhaps using a similar tactic to our... nebula hopping might conceal any telltale traces of our engine signature that may slip through. We could utilize asteroids as temporary stopping points to perform a heat dump before moving on.
(09:34:17 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ENG: Speaking of the heat dump, proceed with that, Lieutenant.
(09:34:29 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Or the upper atmospheres of gas giants, that may conceal our heat dump more effectively.
(09:34:33 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: SCI: I was thinking more along the lines of gas giant atmospheres, yes.
(09:34:38 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: We should be able to fire them like low-velocity probes. They will magnetise to the hull of the target vessel, and only begin emitting on our order. Don't want anyone to show up and find us whilst its en route to target.
(09:34:57 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: CMO: I have never had a contraceptive innoculation Commander, Until recently Sir I had never been sexually active. I would have consulted the Admiral if it had been in another situation, It occrred while we were captive on Risa prior to your coming on Atlantis Sir
(09:35:16 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: CO: That would provide a much more suitable environment. :: mentally curses the fact that using gas giants never even crossed her mind ::
(09:36:00 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: Of course sir. ::Begins the heat dump.::
(09:36:06 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Indeed. Set a course for Wolf 359. We're going in through the front door.
(09:36:37 PM) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::slams his hand down on the desk, standing up and looming, anger clear on his face:: MED: Everyone has the contraceptive shot, Ensign. EV-ER-Y-ONE. Once a month, from the moment you begin the academy, and there are no exceptions without the overriding authorisation of your commanding officer!
(09:36:51 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: Aye, Sir. :: begins plotting a course for Wolf 359 and engages positioning thrusters to turn the svelte little ship appropriately ::
(09:39:24 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Wolfe: Commander, to further reduce our need to dump heat, power down all non-essential systems.
(09:40:42 PM) LCdr_Wolfe: CO: Aye, sir. Powering down all systems but engines and life support. Running life support at 35% normal settings. :: does as he said ::
(09:41:17 PM) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::takes a deep breath, letting it out slowly:: MED: I don't think you quite realise what a problem this is, Tyler. We're not on a planet, we're not even on a Station, we're on the flagship of the Third Fleet - a starship is no place to raise a child, or even bear a child, that's why we have the shot.
(09:42:28 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> ::Finally downs the drink, and slowly makes his way to the bar for another. Throwing a wave to Wright on the way.::
(09:42:41 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: finishes collecting her scans and then begins to compare them to the previous two sets ::
(09:43:27 PM) LO_LCdr_Wright: @ :: leans in to Kate briefly, then notes Douglas approaching the bar. :: ECS: Lieutenant, why don't you join us?
(09:43:56 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @ :: sees Soule approach the bar :: ECS: Nice work on those reroutes aboard the Rho.
(09:43:58 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: CMO: Commander, If I am required to get a contraceptive innoculation every month then I am sure that I have received it. The fact of the matter is regardless if we are in an area that is conducive to pregnancy T'Lira and I are having a baby. It wasnt intentional and definitely not insubordinate Sir :: Now standing matching the CMO eyes::
(09:44:19 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: @<MCS_LtJG_Sarissa> :: finally just gives up on these things for now and stands, beelining for the bar and ordering whatever is strongest ::
(09:44:22 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: SCI: Are the science scans complete?
(09:44:46 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: CO: Aye sir. They have been catalougued for future transmission to Starfleet.
(09:45:01 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> LO: Ummm. ::Looks around, and realises he's falling into old habit.:: Sure. Thank you. ::Gives a brief smile.::
(09:45:24 PM) LO_LCdr_Wright: @ :: smiles at Douglas, then lays eyes on the MCS as well :: MCS: Sarissa! Come join us! :: raises her drink ::
(09:45:42 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> FCS: Thank you commander. It's strange to actually use those skills.
(09:46:03 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ENG: Status of the heat dump?
(09:46:05 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Course calculations complete, Sir. We are ready to get underway to Wolf 359 on your command.
(09:46:06 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: @<MCS_LtJG_Sarissa> :: looks surprised :: LO: Oh, hello! :: takes a seat nearby :: Seems we have a party here.
(09:46:36 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: notes the air feeling odd :: Wolfe: Commander... when I said non-essential systems, I didn't include life support, you know that right?
(09:46:45 PM) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: MED: The shot doesn't fail, Tyler. You're confined to quarters when not on duty until we can resolve this issue that both you and Lieutenant T'Lira have placed us in. ::gives Slade a look that brooks no arguement then takes his seat, picking up his PADD again:: You're dismissed, Ensign. Go and work out some of that frustration in the cargo bay.
(09:46:48 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @MCS: Hi Doc.
(09:47:03 PM) LO_LCdr_Wright: @ :: gives Sarissa a worried look :: MCS: Sorry to ask you about work stuff, but... How's Feyna doing?
(09:47:06 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: Just about ready sir. I managed to increase the dump efficiency by 1.43% as well...
(09:47:56 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: @<MCS_LtJG_Sarissa> FCS: Hello. :: frowns :: LO: Well, she's going to pull through and recover quite well, but the problem is finding a recovery plan that she'll abide by. In my experience, tactical officers are always stubborn about such things.
(09:48:31 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> Self: Strange of Starfleet to ask of any of the skills I'm good at.
(09:48:35 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @ :: glad to hear that :: MCS: Certainly an improvement from when last I saw her...
(09:48:51 PM) LO_LCdr_Wright: @ :: nods at Sarissa :: MCS: I've heard they can be quite a hard-headed bunch. I'm really happy to hear that she'll recover, though.
(09:48:59 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> MCS: She is...
(09:49:28 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: CMO: With all due respect Commander, I had hoped that you would investigate prior to assesing judgement or punishment sir :: Turns and leaves the office and, as instructed, goes to the cargo bay::
(09:49:41 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> LO: And we are.
(09:50:01 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: @<MCS_LtJG_Sarissa> FCS/LO/ECS: Well, at least she'll be back to the standard stubborn self that she normally is soon. Most of the injuries are working on being healed, it's just the muscles that had to be regenerated.
(09:50:23 PM) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::sighs, deflating a little as he places the PADD down, his stern visage replaced with weariness:: Self: Kids....
(09:50:48 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: leans back in the chair and admires the nebula for a moment ::
(09:51:13 PM) LO_LCdr_Wright: @ ECS/MCS: Both of you did an amazing job. It was a real pleasure working with you.
(09:51:22 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: *SCI*: Slade to T'Lira
(09:51:24 PM) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::taps his comm badge:: *CO*: Sickbay to Admiral Blackthorne.
(09:51:34 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: *CMO* Blackthorne here.
(09:51:35 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: @<MCS_LtJG_Sarissa> LO: Likewise, Commander.
(09:51:57 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: mildly confused about the comm call :: *MED* T'Lira here.
(09:52:08 PM) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: *CO*: If it's not too much trouble, Admiral, could I borrow your Science Officer?
(09:52:09 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: MCS/ECS: I second that. What we accomplished was extraordinary.
(09:52:22 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> LO: Indeed. Coulda done without working with Captain Rome more... but... meh... no rest for the wicked.
(09:52:35 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: glances at T'Lira :: *CMO* Whyyyyy?
(09:52:37 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: *SCI* If you havent told the ADMIRAL I suggest now
(09:53:01 PM) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: glances back at T'Lira, curious ::
(09:53:02 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: over hears another conversation and winces slightly :: *MED* Too late.
(09:53:13 PM) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: *CO*: Doctor-Patient, Admiral. Sorry.
(09:53:25 PM) LO_LCdr_Wright: @ :: gives Sarissa a slightly reluctant grin :: MCS: I just wish I could have kept Feyna out of the line of fire. ECS: :: raises her eyebrows :: Not a fan of Captain Rome?
(09:53:31 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @:: almost instinctively goes for the arm console to check on the Sprite at the mention of Rome ::
(09:53:38 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: *CMO* She's all yours.
(09:53:51 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: SCI: Lieutenant, report to sickbay.
(09:54:02 PM) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::nods, grabbing his other PADD with T'Lira's medical records:: *CO*: Thank you, Admiral. Kymar out.
(09:54:07 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> FCS: We do not get on... at all.
(09:54:09 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: @<MCS_LtJG_Sarissa> LO: And I wish that none of us had to be there, but the universe just doesn't like to be friendly. It's rather annoying like that.
(09:54:46 PM) LO_LCdr_Wright: @ :: trying to be diplomatic :: ECS: I did find him rather... abrasive.
(09:54:50 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: nods, and quickly turns towards the turbolift :: TL: Sickbay. :: tries to force down that awkward flush that always appears when she least wants it ::
(09:55:37 PM) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: since their staff is rather limited...gets up and takes Science. It's not like she's not constantly monitoring her old station anyway ::
(09:55:51 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @ECS: As did I.
(09:55:57 PM) LCdr_Wolfe: :: turns his head to address the VAdmiral :: CO: I calculated that we don't need 65% of our life support function under normal circumstances. I merely lowered their energy use. If I need to put more power to them, I am ready.
(09:56:08 PM) LCdr_Wolfe: CO: If that's okay, sir.
(09:56:26 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> LO: He's seen some things in his time... given into hate... and hate corrupts even the purest of people...
(09:56:42 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Wolfe: Yes, turn it back up to full.
(09:56:56 PM) LCdr_Wolfe: CO: Aye, Sir.
(09:57:29 PM) LCdr_Wolfe: :: resets life support to full and looks to make sure he has everything else that isn't totally critical turned off ::
(09:57:29 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> LO: Makes them bitter... drives them to betray themselves.
(09:58:37 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @ :: sips at her drink, wondering how much of this is just gossip ::
(09:58:41 PM) LO_LCdr_Wright: @ :: blinks :: ECS: That's heavy.
(09:59:11 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> ::Waves the barkeeper down.:: BK: Your strongest drink, in your largest glass please.
(10:01:34 PM) Zaxiven: :: looks around in the pitch black mess hall, unable to do anything. At least the air is feeling... thicker... ::
(10:01:41 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> LO: Life is full of tales of woe. ::Pictures murdering unconscious Tzenkethi.:: And some can't handle the darkness that comes with it, without losing something of themselves.

(10:03:20 PM) LO_LCdr_Wright: @ :: slides her eyes over to Kate with a brief twist of her lips meaning "Wow, this guy is a little dramatic, huh?" before turning back to Douglas and nodding while sipping her drink ::
(10:03:22 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> ::Smiles at Harper and Wright.:: LO: It's about finding the right people to help you hold on.
(10:03:54 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: That should do it then. NAV: Engage at warp six.

(10:05:44 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Bridge: I doubt Zuriyev will expect us to make a run through the front door.

(10:13:28 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: TAC: How's the shipping traffic looking?
(10:15:02 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: What distance would you like to maintain behind these freighters, Sir?
(10:15:29 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Or would you like to come right up on them?
(10:15:46 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Considering we're at warp, are you able to safely maintain approximately twenty kilometers?
(10:16:09 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Easily, Sir.
(10:16:10 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> MCS: I could tell you more about myself to help your profile along... but then I'd have to kill you. And that would make me sad.

(10:17:22 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @ ECS: Will you bring a sword to that gunfight too? :: smirks ::
(10:17:37 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: cracks her knuckles in anticipation, eager to show what she can do. ::
(10:17:46 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> FCS: Always.
(10:18:02 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: @<MCS_LtJG_Sarissa> FCS: I'd probably do the same. I have terrible aim with guns.
(10:18:25 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @MCS: All you have to do to win is be a giant armored lizard.
(10:18:36 PM) LO_LCdr_Wright: @ MCS: And you think your aim would be better with a SWORD?
(10:19:20 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Time passes and traffic thickens as the Aquarius approaches Wolf 359.
(10:19:23 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: @<MCS_LtJG_Sarissa> FCS: That, I can't do. LO: My father made sure that I knew how to use his Honor Blade before he even let me apply for Starfleet. Sometimes, I'm thankful for overprotective parents. :: chuckles to herself ::
(10:19:41 PM) LO_LCdr_Wright: @ MCS: Personally, I'm inclined to keep anything that's trying to kill me as far away from me as possible. Swords are just... overcompensating for something.
(10:20:00 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> Self: I've trained almost my entire life to fight...
(10:20:37 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @ ECS/MCS: My weapon of choice is a Mustang fighter. Better than a sword or a rifle.
(10:20:44 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: @<MCS_LtJG_Sarissa> LO: Oh, of that, we are in full agreement. But I really wanted to join Starfleet. To me, learning to use the Blade was worth it.
(10:21:27 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> MCS: I killed someone for the first time when I was 9 years old.... if thats helpful.
(10:21:30 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: strides out of Sickbay, a little more than annoyed :: *MED* T'Lira to Slade. I see what you meant earlier.

(10:22:55 PM) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: There's an increasing number of ships in this area. We are more likely to be noticed, but I am unable to determine how likely we are to be viewed as...suspicious.
(10:23:17 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: *MED* I was mildly prepared. Although, I do feel that it was mildly unnecessary at this point in time.
(10:23:19 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @ Group: That is likely a good thing. The not telling a lot of people part...

(10:24:11 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: @<MCS_LtJG_Sarissa> Group: Well, we've all got things we don't like to talk about. Besides, as we've just been through hell and back on a classified mission... I'd say it's still classified.
(10:25:10 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @ Group: Yes, classified. At nine I was playing the games with friends.
(10:25:15 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: *MED* At the moment, I do not believe returning to the bridge would be wise. I do not wish to deal with yet another awkward conversation just yet.
(10:25:26 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> All: This mission brought back alot of old memories.
(10:25:30 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Put the overview on screen.
(10:26:19 PM) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: brings up a map of the local space traffic around Wolf 359 on the main viewer ::
(10:26:23 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: *SCI* Meet me on deck 2 galley
(10:26:37 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Suddenly becomes panicked, and starts looking around for Dan'el or Jinto. Before remembering where he is, hoping noone on the bridge saw him.::
(10:26:44 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: *MED* On my way. :: heads for the galley ::
(10:27:26 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Sits in the Galley waiting for her to come::
(10:27:29 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: watches the map for a bit and points :: That one, the Cazador. NAV: Make for that ship.
(10:27:52 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: heads into the galley and spots Tyler, walking straight over ::
(10:27:58 PM) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: thinks it was a good choice ::
(10:28:26 PM) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: relays the coordinates and the Cazador's heading to NAV ::
(10:29:18 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Stands up and instinctually embraces her::
(10:30:01 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> ::Up ends the mugs, and the rest of his barnacle stripping solvent. And continued to look on, through the bar.::
(10:30:10 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: slightly surprised by the contact, but awkwardly returns it. ::
(10:31:11 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: looks up at the main viewer, wondering which one is their target right as the Admiral tells her. :: CO: Aye, Sir. :: once she receives the details from T'Kirr, angles toward the Cazador in the least suspicious-looking way possible, slowly closing to the designated distance, her long fingers artfully holding them there. ::
(10:31:19 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @ :: orders up another World Serpent, hers gone in a cloud of drama and killing ::
(10:31:22 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Maintaining twenty kilometers.
(10:31:23 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: After a moment pulls away realizing that it is not what she is used to:: SCI: I am sorry for you being blind sided.
(10:31:38 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Good flying.
(10:31:39 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: I hope he wasnt to hard on you
(10:31:57 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: TAC: Launch one of Ilaihr's beacons at the Cazador.
(10:32:13 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: nods her thanks in response, but does not turn to look, her attention wholly focused on what she is doing. ::
(10:32:28 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: There is no cause for apology. That conversation was... as expected.
(10:33:31 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> LO/FCS: When you return to Atlantis... could you... no never mind...
(10:33:39 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: So I am assuming you are confined to quarters when not on duty?
(10:33:45 PM) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Launches the beacon from his torpedo tube. :: CO: Beacon away!
(10:34:29 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: Supposedly. :: doesn't even begin to go into just how she could get around such a restriction ::
(10:34:31 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @ ECS : What is it?
(10:34:59 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ENG: Status of the beacon?
(10:35:05 PM) LO_LCdr_Wright: @ ECS: Yes, please, tell us.
(10:35:50 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: It might be a good idea to inform the Admiral sooner rather than later.
(10:36:04 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: already scanning the displayed projections for the next lucky ship ::
(10:36:09 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: stifles a sigh :: MED: At this point, it is inevitable.
(10:36:27 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> LO/FCS: Could you tell Captain... Leftenant Ilaihr... that I need his counsel.
(10:37:04 PM) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: highlights the ships on the viewscreen that are heading in the general direction of earth for easier analysis ::
(10:37:24 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @ ECS: I do not see why we could not do that for you.
(10:37:35 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: Nearly at target captain. 5 Seconds... 4...
(10:37:43 PM) LO_LCdr_Wright: @ :: a confused look, then she remembers that the two men know each other, though she wonders why Douglas can't reach out to Ilaihr himself. :: ECS: Certainly, that would not be a problem.
(10:38:00 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> FCS: Thankyou commander.
(10:38:02 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: The Fontaine.
(10:38:04 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: It is , but I think he would appreciate it more coming from us rather than coming from Commander Kymar
(10:38:26 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @ ECS: Certainly. Like the good doctor said, we have been through hell together. It is the least we can do.
(10:38:38 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: I believe it would be far more appropriate to hear it from us rather than a third party, as well.
(10:38:59 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Make for the Fontaine.
(10:39:06 PM) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: sends the necessary information to NAV for an updated flight plan ::
(10:39:25 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: It is our child, but it is your body. The decision is yours as to when you would like to tell anyone
(10:40:06 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: lifts an eyebrow :: MED: I do believe the popular aphorism is "it takes two to tango"? Just as it takes two to make such a decision.
(10:40:38 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ENG: Is the beacon attached and transmitting?
(10:41:03 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> ::Senses his cryptic mood is confusing.:: LO/FCS: I dont like asking for help... but he found me when I was at my worst.
(10:41:30 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Then I suggest that we finish this game, and as soon as he decides to go to his ready room hit me on the comm and we go together
(10:41:49 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: nods at T'Kirr and adjusts her flight path, carefully peeling away from behind the Cazador and lining up behind the Fontaine. She holds her breath as she edges ever closer... :: CO: Twenty kilometers... and holding. :: a bead of sweat threatens to trickle down her brow, and she ignores it ::
(10:41:50 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: It is attached. I recommend we attach a few more of them before activating them.
(10:42:01 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @ ECS: As you wish, Lieutenant.
(10:42:14 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: TAC: Fire the second beacon.
(10:42:19 PM) LO_LCdr_Wright: @ ECS: No need to explain. We will pass along the message, as you ask.
(10:42:40 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: Agreed. Now, I must return to my post before someone starts wondering. It would not do for there to be distractions that could prevent them from losing such a valuable prize as defeating the entirety of Starfleet. :: hopes that came out sounding like a joke ::
(10:42:46 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> LO/FCS: Thank you commanders.
(10:43:08 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @ECS: You are welcome! :: smiles and dives into the fresh drink ::
(10:43:10 PM) LO_LCdr_Wright: @ :: offers Soule a warm smile and clinks her glass against his ::
(10:43:21 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Chuckles:: SCI: I agree lets have him in a good mood when we tell him
(10:43:29 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @ Group: It has been an honor to serve with all of you.
(10:43:31 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Good luck
(10:43:49 PM) LO_LCdr_Wright: @ Group: Hear, hear. :: raises her glass to that ::
(10:43:51 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: Until later. :: heads off towards the bridge, albeit at a slightly slower pace than her trek to the galley ::
(10:44:25 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> @::Smiles back. Finishes his drink, and orders another.::
(10:44:42 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: @<ECS_LtJG_Douglas> All: It's been a pleasure.
(10:44:55 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @ For certain values of pleasure.
(10:45:29 PM) LO_LCdr_Wright: @ :: flicks a sideways glance at Harper and nudges her with her elbow ::
(10:45:36 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Aquarius tags five more freighters.
(10:46:06 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ENG: That's all of them. Activate the beacons.
(10:46:10 PM) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Orders another beacon to be loaded and waits for the latch to close before hitting the fire button. :: CO: Second Beacon away.
(10:46:17 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Set a course for Alpha Centauri.
(10:46:34 PM) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Returns to sickbay reluctantly::
(10:46:47 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: quickly swipes her sleeve across her brow when the moment presents itself, then hears her next command. :: CO: Alpha Centauri, aye. Course laid in.
(10:46:49 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @ :: snickers and glances at Lexy :: What? My throat is still sore from that damn language.
(10:47:23 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Looks at the captain and for a moment thinks that he is Solir, before rubbing his eyes.:: CO: Aye Sir. ::Activates the beacons.::
(10:47:34 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ENG: Are they transmitting?
(10:47:57 PM) LO_LCdr_Wright: @ :: softly :: FCS: The rest of you is going to be sore, too, if you're not careful. :: winks ::
(10:48:07 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: returns to the bridge and silently watches from an auxiliary station ::
(10:48:14 PM) FCS_Cdr_Harper: @ :: snickers ::
(10:49:08 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: Yes Gul. Although faint... it almost perfectly matches Aquarius' signal and intensity.
(10:49:18 PM) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: with such a limited crew, notices T'Lira's reappearance and questions her with a silent look ::
(10:49:25 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: ready to engage... did he just say Gul? ::
(10:49:31 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: I mean Captain.
(10:49:32 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ENG: Gul? What's the matter with you?
(10:49:42 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Engage at warp six.
(10:49:46 PM) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: suddenly finds this auxiliary console to be very interesting... wait, why did he say Gul? ::
(10:49:54 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Upon arrival, do not stop, turn right into the shipping lanes.
(10:50:04 PM) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: is distracted from T'Lira by Illaihr and puzzles at him instead ::
(10:50:07 PM) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: ...Admiral. ::Clears his throat and focuses on his console.::
(10:50:32 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Aye, sir. Warp six, engaging. Upon arrival, do not stop, turn right into the shipping lanes. Understood.
(10:50:39 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: And yes, I'm asking for a turn at warp six. I'm sure you can fly it.
(10:50:48 PM) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: wonders what is happening to the crew... ::
(10:51:09 PM) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: actually glances back over her shoulder at the Admiral on that one :: CO: Consider it done, Sir.
(10:51:31 PM) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Aquarius warps off into the black one more time, having sown the seeds of misdirection...
