(21:25:41) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Hopes to see Atlantis soon and what adventures this crew has next.:: Self: What fun.
(21:26:34) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: True enough, sir! Thankfully, a lot more durable than the stand in we hit! Nice bit of improvisation at the very end, by the way.
(21:27:17) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CEO: Thank you, thank you. Nice job on your staff for keeping the ship together, as well. To what do I owe this visit?
(21:27:37) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: in temporary quarters aboard Starbase One, sitting at the desk and going through personal messages ::
(21:29:32) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Abruptly stops drumming the PADD. :: Ah, yes. And, thank you! I'll pass that along. I just thought you'd like the final report on how the Cryo Stealth performed. How long it took to vent, how much actual bleed it released, and so on.
(21:29:45) BAR_Bartender_Zaxiven: :: has wiped everything down in the mess hall and finally can make his way to Starbase One and their lounge... for a drink of his own. ::
(21:30:00) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: sits in the lounge aboard Starbase One, wondering where Wright and Harper are ::
(21:30:05) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CEO: Indeed. That was, after all, the entire point of the exercise.
(21:30:45) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ::The corridors seem long but they made it to the office area in a fair time, releasing her hand as they reached the command deck::
(21:30:46) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: After a shower and getting into a clean uniform while on Starbase One, Randen gets something to eat from the replicator as he reads his messages. He was invited to go to the Academy once on Earth to get his physical diploma. :: Sweet, good thing I'm in the neighborhood.
(21:31:18) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: I've already forwarded Admiral Zuriyev a copy as well.
(21:31:41) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: enjoying a hike with through a towering forest of Douglas Fir trees, the morning light filtering down to speckles on the forest floor. She stops for a moment, her foot up on a fallen log, and wipes a sheen of sweat from her brow as she takes a swig from her canteen and offers it to Kate. :: Kate: The falls aren't far from here, we'll probably be able to hear them soon. What do you think so far?
(21:32:11) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: It seems we have arrived. How exactly do we plan to... break the news? I do not believe a simple blurted comment would be appropriate here?
(21:32:25) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Hands him over the PADD. ::
(21:32:33) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CEO: Excellent. From what I can tell, the thing performed admirably. :: takes the PADD and looks it over ::
(21:32:34) CSO_LCdr_Wright: <subtract with, leave through>
(21:33:29) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: takes the canteen and drinks a little :: Lexy: It is beautiful. The forest has a completely different character than home.
(21:33:55) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: I am open to suggestions, would you rather talk or would you rather I did?
(21:34:11) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Brings the glass to his nose, smelling it before sipping and swilling it around his mouth, scanning the tones of the drink. He was certain it synthahol swill or at the very least; poorly replicated.::
(21:34:36) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: thinks it over :: MED: Unless either one of us has experience with this sort of thing, I believe it should be a joint effort.
(21:35:21) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: Yes, sir. Even with all the shielding, it doesn't QUITE blend perfectly in with the background radiation. Especially when the sinks are over 80% capacity. So, if we have to use this tech for real, I'd advise more frequent venting when possible.
(21:35:39) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: glances down at her feet and twitches the tip of her tail atop them. Finally, she gets up and heads to her temporary quarters ::
(21:35:48) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: But whoever was scanning for us would have needed to know what they were looking for. And some luck never hurts.
(21:35:57) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Alright then I will begin by asking for the moment to speak and then we will take cues from one aother.
(21:36:08) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CEO: It will only improve, but it's an amazing start.
(21:36:17) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: Agreed. That seems to be the best course of action.
(21:36:55) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Fidgets subtly. :: Yes, sir. I'm certainly inclined to agree.
(21:37:13) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CEO: Thank you, lieutenant. Was there anything else?
(21:38:10) CEO_LtQuinn: CO: No, sir. In fact, unless you have anything else for me, I was wondering if I have your permission to kick off until we're recalled.
(21:38:18) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ::They continued down the hallway to the office door:: SCI: Here goes :: Pushes the door chime::
(21:38:26) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CEO: Please do.
(21:38:27) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: finishes with the messages and stands, stretches, and heads out of her quarters towards the Aquarius command office ::
(21:38:52) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Nods. :: Thank you, sir!
(21:39:02) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CEO: Tell whoever that is to come in as you go. Enjoy!
(21:39:17) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: enters her small cabin and notices a message waiting for her ::
(21:40:28) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Smiles, turns about and exits, nodding to the blue shirts. :: Hey, guys. The Admiral said to just come on in. Enjoy your leave!
(21:41:16) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ::Walks into the office with T'Lira:: CO: Admiral, Sir may we have a moment of your time?
(21:41:19) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Hand trembles suddenly as he goes to place his glass down. Corrects it with his other hand, and puts the glass down gently. Laughs at himself for a second:: Self: I'm either getting old or tired. Or both.
(21:41:20) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: well, an easy start so far. Hopefully this entire conversation will be as easy. Probably not, but it is a distant hope ::
(21:41:47) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::lets out a long slow breath as the apparatus blips, signifying that the ordeal is over for another month. Carefully he slips the pad from his inner elbow, stretching the arm back and forth while clenching his fist to keep circulation going::
(21:42:32) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: grins, clearly proud to be showing off her home, stows her canteen and keeps walking :: Kate: Well, we won't hear the falls if the water is low, which is likely, but I promise this hike is worth it without them. :: gestures all around :: I grew up in these mountains, these trees... I'm so happy to be able to share them with you. :: she said, smiling back at Kate while climbing a set of steps carved into the rock ::
(21:42:36) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: looks up as T'Lira and Slade enter :: Of course. Please, have a seat.
(21:42:52) SEC_Lt_Kuari: Ruari> *Kuari! I got your message that you're in orbit! I'm sorry, it's been very busy in the laboratory. How long do you have here? Come home for dinner if you can. I hope I haven't missed you!*
(21:43:38) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ::Gestures to the other chair as he sits in the opposite space:: CO: Thank you Sir.
(21:44:00) DAQO_AdmACZuriyev: :: frowning in his office at SFHQ, San Francisco ::
(21:44:03) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: sits and puts her hands in her lap, one over the other, so she doesn't start tapping her fingers ::

(21:44:38) CAG_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: It is good to see your home, where you came from.
(21:45:29) MED_Ens_DrSlade: CO: Admiral, I am sure you recall our extended shore leave on Risa
(21:45:36) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: MED: Of course.
(21:46:29) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: tries to think of how to phrase this... ::
(21:46:35) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::calmly packs the equipment away, a thin sheen of sweat on his forehead and a touch of breathlessness on his lips::
(21:46:41) MED_Ens_DrSlade: CO: Well Sir, with such an extended period I am sure you understand how things can happen
(21:47:20) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: eyes narrow :: What... things, exactly?
(21:47:48) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: loves the forest air, takes a deep lungful as they hike ::
(21:47:57) SCI_LtJG_TLira: CO: After a set amount of time in another person's company, one can begin to form a relationship... :: did that sound awkward? probably so ::
(21:48:05) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Sits back and stares out at the stars again, Sol's light just visible of Earth's horizon.::
(21:49:18) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: SCI/MED: Get to the point.
(21:49:22) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: hides her almost giddy smile and says casually :: Kate: Did I mention that this mountain range is volcanic? Very geologically interesting. You see, just offshore, the Juan de Fuca plate... :: rambles on about plate tectonics for a few minutes :: Ah! It's just over this... there! :: stops at the lip of a small cliff overlooking a crystal-clear waterfall basin pool of topaz-blue water, shockingly bright in the middl
(21:49:46) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: transports down to a high-rise in San Francisco, gallops down the hallway, skids to a halt at the end and yells a greeting through the door ::
(21:49:54) MED_Ens_DrSlade: CO: T'Lira and I have formed such a relationship, and in that relationship as you know comes the physical part.
(21:50:00) MED_Ens_DrSlade: CO: Well sir
(21:50:07) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: approaches the command office and rings the chime ::
(21:50:23) CSO_LCdr_Wright: shockingly bright in the middle of the autumn forest :: Kate: This... is Blue Pool.
(21:50:41) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: his good mood starts to slip away as he senses Slade's emotions ::
(21:50:47) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: what was that about throwing caution to the wind, ah yes... but to decide whether to simply say it flat out was still a mild struggle ::
(21:51:05) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: looks up at the door chime, intrinsically knowing who it is :: Come in.
(21:51:28) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: enters, sees Blackthorne and the backs of Slade and T'Lira, stops ::
(21:51:30) CAG_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: It is gorgeous! The water is so clear.
(21:51:53) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Grabs T'Lira's hand and says:: CO: We are now expecting a child sir.
(21:51:55) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::packs everything away into his case:: Computer: Computer, unlock surgical suite door, authorisation Kymar Nine Delta Orange. ::slings it over his shoulder and steps through the open door, hearing it thunk closed behind him, nodding to the attending physician before he leaves::
(21:52:22) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: lets out a long breath as he looks down and pinches the bridge of his nose ::
(21:52:32) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: did the door just open? she thinks it did... Oh well. Caution has now been thrown to the wind ::
(21:52:37) MED_Ens_DrSlade: CO: We attempeted to inform you but we were unfortunately unable, and we are to this day unsure how it occured but it is confirmed sir
(21:52:43) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: beams at Kate :: Kate: Yes, it's so clear you can hardly tell it's over 9 meters deep in places, right?
(21:52:57) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: stands up and crosses to the bar, then pours himself a scotch ::
(21:53:19) MED_Ens_DrSlade: CO: Well sir we know how it occurred but i mean with the innoculations.
(21:53:51) CAG_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: You are right, that is quite hard to tell. Can we swim? Oh, I bet it is too cold.
(21:54:09) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: perks an eyebrow, then clasps her hands behind her and walks slowly until she's just within view, still listening ::
(21:54:18) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods to T'Kirr, and lets her know he wishes her to stay for this ::
(21:54:43) SCI_LtJG_TLira: CO: If it is of any assistance, there may have been a partial lapse in judgement in missing the doses. :: and that is all she is willing to admit ::
(21:54:50) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: takes a drink of the Scotch and crosses to the window, looking out at Earth ::
(21:54:57) SEC_Lt_Kuari: Ruari> :: yells back, and the door swishes open, allowing Kuari to romp in :: Mother!
(21:55:04) SEC_Lt_Kuari: Kuari> Mother!
(21:55:27) MED_Ens_DrSlade: CO: With the extended amount of time on Risa it is possible Sir
(21:55:40) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: laughs :: Kate: We can if you really want to, but this is glacial runoff... the water is REALLY cold! In the summertime, sometimes people dive down from up here, but... :: shivers at the thought in the cooler autumn weather ::
(21:56:38) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: still looking out at Earth:: MED/SCI: You realize the position you've put me in, I hope.
(21:57:04) SEC_Lt_Kuari: Ruari> :: meets Kuari halfway and they practically bump heads in a nuzzle :: There's my child, off fighting her way through the stars!

(21:59:12) SEC_Lt_Kuari: Ruari: I've been doing what I'm commanded, Mother. Sometimes I have to fight. It's my duty to defend my shipmates. :: sits down at her mother's concerned expression ::
(21:59:54) CAG_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: How cold is cold? :: mischievous grin ::
(21:59:56) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Makes his way down to the proper bay, identifies himself, and hops onto the outgoing shuttle at the last minute, sitting with a long sigh of relief. The next shuttle to Vesta Base isn't due out for another 8 hours. ::

(22:01:29) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: blinks and remains silent, unsure of how to reply ::
(22:02:17) SEC_Lt_Kuari: Ruari> Kuari: Yes I know, but couldn't you have pursued something less...dangerous? You could work in medical with me, it's not too late.
(22:02:42) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Standing knowing the question is rhetorical but wanting to reiterate how they were confined to Risa and not on Atlantis::

(22:04:07) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: MED/SCI: Excuses notwithstanding, since they do have hospitals and Starfleet medical facilities on Risa, I am... profoundly disappointed in you both.
(22:05:03) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: the pattern on the desk is especially interesting at the moment ::
(22:05:27) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Senses some kind of emotional kerfuffle somewhere, but drifts further off; his mind going elsewhere.
(22:05:54) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: MED/SCi: You both have such potential as officers, but with such a flagrant failure to follow the most basic of regulations, I am left with little choice.
(22:06:07) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: sighs :: Ruari: So, how about dinner?
(22:06:22) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Feeling ashamed that he had dissapointed his CO, but still standing tall and proud of his unborn child.::
(22:06:43) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: smirks :: Lexy: I think it might end up the other way around, but perhaps we should not find out.
(22:08:09) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: laughs :: Oh, trust me, I'm not crazy enough to dive in there! Although I might be convinced to hike around down to the water level and dip my feet in it if you wanted.
(22:08:11) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: SCI/MED: You were both eligible for promotion at the end of this mission, and it was actually in processing. Your actions have forced me to deny that promotion and place a formal reprimand on your record.
(22:08:33) CAG_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: That could be fun. I bet it tastes wonderful, too.
(22:10:17) MED_Ens_DrSlade: CO: Admiral Sir if I may, Please punish me but not reprimand T'Lira. Being the medical officer I should have been mindful of the innoculations. I take full responsibility!

Their squash plants are huge! There's one called a "pumpkin" that's very popular this time of year.
(22:10:32) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: smiles :: Kate: This way, then. :: leads them on a hike down to the water level ::
(22:10:43) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: SCI/MED: The old Earth saying is that it takes two to tango.

(22:10:55) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: lifts an eyebrow and tugs at Tyler's sleeve :: MED: I believe this has been discussed before...? The Admiral is correct.
(22:11:17) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Cant blame me for trying
(22:11:39) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: There is no logical need to try. What has been done has been done and cannot be changed.
(22:11:51) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Nods:
(22:12:11) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Kate: Would you like to hike to a hot spring later? THAT water we can get into... one of the plus sides to living in a volcanically active region.

(22:18:37) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: I daresay that went well.
(22:19:25) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: I think it could have gone better, but it could have been worse as well. I admire your attempt at sarcasm though!
(22:20:07) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: I am gratified at that. :: wonders when Commander Harper gets back so she can quite simply, get this over with ::
(22:20:55) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: perks an eyebrow again at Blackthorne's summary :: CO: It's difficult to believe such a thing would happen, but apparently not impossible.
(22:22:18) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Wakes up startled; wondering what bar, on what planet, in what squalid of the galaxy he's in. The surrounds unfamiliar for a moment. For he gets his bearings, rubs his eyes, and sits back again.::
(22:22:18) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Not unheard of, no. Regardless, we all take our damn shots.
(22:22:45) DAQO_AdmACZuriyev: :: beams up to the Starbase ::
(22:23:16) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: sits on the sofa :: CO: It's more that I wouldn't expect it from two such officers.
(22:23:59) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: sits on the rocky shore and pulls off her hiking boots and socks, rolling up the legs of her pants ::
(22:24:04) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Same here. :: sighs and sits next to her ::
(22:24:28) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: does likewise, eyeing the crystalline waters ::
(22:24:56) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: And I would imagine they're somewhat in shock as well.
(22:25:14) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: So... what now?
(22:26:07) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Well like the Admiral said, it isnt a career ending situation. I say we keep working hard as we always do.
(22:26:33) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: With much to deal with. I certainly remember it. But that doesn't change the practical effects of it that we'll have to deal with. I could have simply chosen not to allow them aboard.
(22:26:47) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: lifts an eyebrow slightly :: MED: Apologies, it seems I wasn't quite clear. I meant, what do we do now? Wander the station, visit Earth...
(22:27:15) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: Indeed. I will take time to consider the situation.
(22:27:44) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Buuuut we can't really spare anyone right now, so yeah, consider. Reminds me, we're at Earth, I need to visit Ross.
(22:28:24) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: You should.
(22:30:13) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: finishes dinner from a low coffee table they customarily use ::
(22:30:24) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Well he didnt revoke our shore leave, and we are here so maybe we should go visit your little boy again. I am up for lasagna
(22:30:24) DAQO_AdmACZuriyev: :: finds out where they've put Ian up, goes there, and rings the chime ::
(22:30:29) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Come in!
(22:30:42) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: That sounds like a most agreeable idea.
(22:30:51) DAQO_AdmACZuriyev: :: enters :: Ian! Congratulations on the win!
(22:31:02) SEC_Lt_Kuari: Ruari> Kuari: I'm glad you liked it. Can you stay the night?
(22:31:19) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: sits under a kotatsu, sipping tea with her family ::
(22:31:25) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: stands when Zuriyev enters ::
(22:31:49) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: stands as well and shakes the Admiral's hand :: Thanks, Alexi. Couldn't let you beat me, after all.
(22:32:17) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Then lets go pack a bag and get to the transporter room
(22:32:27) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: cups her hands and drinks some of the water ::
(22:32:27) XO_Capt_TKirr: DAQO: And I couldn't let you beat him.
(22:32:28) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Goes to the lounge and gets a coffee. Goes to the window to look down at Earth. Waiting for the green light to go down. He sips his coffee. ::
(22:32:38) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: Agreed.
(22:32:56) DAQO_AdmACZuriyev: CO/XO: Well, not that I can blame you, after all. Good job testing the ship out.
(22:33:06) SEC_Lt_Kuari: Ruari: Yes I can. Can we go fly for a while?
(22:33:19) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Head back to their quarters to get their belongings::
(22:33:38) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: follows suit, running her tongue over her wet lips :: Kate: So fresh and clean!
(22:34:11) CAG_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: Crisp, clean, perfect. :: fills her canteen after dumping it on a plant ::
(22:34:41) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: DAQO: Thanks again. It was fun.
(22:34:51) SEC_Lt_Kuari: Ruari> Kuari: Of course! :: stands up and heads with Kuari to the balcony :: It's been years, it seems, hasn't it?
(22:35:25) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Kate: This is where the McKenzie River comes up from underground. The water flowing out from the end of the pool is that river we hiked past on our way up here. :: does the same with her canteen ::
(22:35:28) DAQO_AdmACZuriyev: CO/XO: Care to step it up a bit?
(22:35:53) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: DAQO: What do you mean?
(22:36:03) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Perks up at the fizzling type sound against the hull that signals their shuttle has just passed through the atmospheric shield and entered into the dome the covers the Vesta spaceport. :: Dang, how long's it been?
(22:36:04) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: glances at Blackthorne ::
(22:36:18) DAQO_AdmACZuriyev: CO/XO: Well, I promised your crew a reward if you won. Since my ship -
(22:36:22) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: DAQO: My ship.
(22:36:42) DAQO_AdmACZuriyev: CO/XO: - the Atlantis is still in refit, care to take the USS Odyssey out for a spin?
(22:36:57) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: raises both eyebrows ::
(22:37:11) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: grins :: Yes, I think we would like that very much.
(22:37:33) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: CO/XO: the balcony window, jumps onto the railing and off in one move ::
(22:38:02) DAQO_AdmACZuriyev: DAQO: I thought you might say that. And we need some people to put her through some trials, and I knew an available crew.
(22:39:12) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: DAQO: We'll take care of her, then.
(22:40:21) DAQO_AdmACZuriyev: CO/XO: You'd better, hate to dent the future.
(22:40:44) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: dips her foot in the water ::
(22:41:29) DAQO_AdmACZuriyev: CO/XO: So, Brooke is expecting you both for dinner, da?
(22:41:34) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: takes a deep breath and holds it, stepping into the water with both feet up to the ankles :: Kate: NgggaAAAh that's COLD!
(22:42:09) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: follows her in, taking in a breath, but is able to bear it :: Lexy: Wellllll...
(22:42:20) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Hand tremors again in his lap. Sighs, before dozing off again.::
(22:42:28) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: looks over to T'Kirr, then back to Alexi :: Da. I mean yes.
(22:42:39) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: finishes packing her bag ::
(22:43:00) XO_Capt_TKirr: DAQO: We would be honored.
(22:43:21) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: DAQO: Her meat pies would be a reason enough to return to Earth.
(22:43:32) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: hastily hops back out of the water, squeaking about cold cold cold ::
(22:44:07) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: calmly walks out of the water with a grin ::
(22:44:41) DAQO_AdmACZuriyev: CO: Yes, they are delicious! I never knew that the Brits could actually make something taste good before I met her.
(22:45:03) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Finishes packing and heads to the transporter room with T'Lira::
(22:45:19) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: chuckles ::
(22:47:17) DAQO_AdmACZuriyev: XO: And do not worry, she will have some nice vegetarian fare for you as well.
(22:47:48) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Gets to the transporter room and waits for T'Lira to tell the crewman where to send us::
(22:48:27) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: gleefully flies the sky of San Francisco with her mother, making sure to stay out of the traffic lanes ::

(22:52:27) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Takes the public stairs down from the starport, and is soon enough surrounded by rock, metal and artificial lighting for miles around him. And as he keeps walking, he finally comes to a railing, leans over it, and stares down the central spine. Half a mile wide, 5 deep, and swarming with hover cars. The central access point to anywhere on Vesta. ::
(22:52:51) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Whistles again. :: You forget just what a sight it is after awhile.
(22:53:03) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: dries her feet and puts her socks and boots back on, grinning at Lexy ::
