(21:21:18) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: is back at Earth. Not where expected to be so soon. He wonders why he even went out to the ship that... eventually... will be his new home, only to turn right around and come back to Earth. Damn it. ::
(21:25:14) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Has decided before any general malarkey or business can be attended to, he needs to top up on some cold. A strange notion to many, but Andor is a frost moon... and is very cold. Something Andorians are acclimated to, Aenar more so. And he had been inside Sol only recently. So has gone to the literal ass end of Earth, and is literally chilling in a bar at the Antarctic research station.::
(21:25:18) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Arrives on Earth and heads to Starfleet Academy to cross the t's and dot the i's for his graduation. ::
(21:25:54) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: walks down the path towards the Starfleet Childcare Center, noting that several of the older kids are playing an odd game. Very... rough. ::
(21:26:41) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Are they fighting?
(21:27:17) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Walking next to her seeing the tustle of older children::
(21:27:19) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Blows into the air, seeing the condensation of his breath.:: Barkeep: Oh this is fabulous. ::Reclines in his seat.::
(21:27:28) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: I do not know. Considering that no one seems to be in pain, I would say not.
(21:31:15) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::The ever present ache of old age slowly dissipates in the cold.:: Self: Almost colder than home.
(21:33:24) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Barkeep: Y'know what? I might go for a walk, investigate these penguins you Humans gone on about all the time. I've heard they're quite charming.
(21:34:20) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ::Following her into the facility looking around for the young romulan that he had become familiar with::
(21:36:18) SCI_LtJG_TLira: Shari> :: sitting behind her desk with a book and her feet up :: MED/SCI: I think Taril's trying to beat Sorrel at Khariat. Been trying for two weeks now to beat her, but so far, nothing. :: looks up :: Second room on the right. Can't get lost in here!
(21:37:22) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: <BAR_Humperdinck> ENG: You'll have to walk some way... you realise we're about 20 miles from magnetic south, and about 200 miles from existence.
(21:37:25) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: I didnt know he was a Khariat fan :: Follows to the second room as instructed::
(21:38:03) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: <BAR_Humperdinck> ENG: We're as far from Earth as you can get, whilst being on Earth.
(21:38:17) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: One does not need to be a fan of something to wish to partake in it.
(21:38:40) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Fair point my dear. :: Smiles::
(21:39:34) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: BAR: Nicest spot on the planet. It's dark, it's cold, the stars are always out.
(21:39:40) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: finishes explaining to a couple of full Admirals why he had to go to warp through Earth's atmosphere, then exits the office at SFHQ ::
(21:40:37) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: <BAR_Humperdinck> ENG: There's bugger all people around. What the hell are you even doing here?
(21:40:41) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: stands from her seat in the waiting area where Blackthorne exits, eyes on him ::
(21:40:47) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: steps into the room to see Taril busily staring at a Khariat set while a young Vulcan girl contemplates her next move ::
(21:41:25) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: All good. One of them had no idea the Aquarius could even do that.
(21:42:29) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Looks at Taril and the young vulcan, and notices Tlira studying the set seeking the best move, Gives her a slight nudge and a smile::
(21:43:31) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: has always preferred to be in space, and chooses a bar on Starbase One to relax and have a drink ::
(21:43:51) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: BAR: I had a friend, a long time ago, who introduced me to this place. Used to work here. Thought he still did, but it appears he's moved along and I'll have to relocate him later. For now this is a pleseant excursion.
(21:43:55) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: is almost to the bar, when he comes up with an idea and makes a turn ::
(21:44:31) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: is amused and relaxes somewhat, walkwith with Blackthorne out of the waiting area and down the hall ::
(21:44:38) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: gazes at the pair as the Vulcan girl finally makes her move :: MED: I believe that she will succeed first
(21:46:41) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: <BAR_Humperdinck> ENG: Well, you got this place pretty much to yourself. There's about 8 people here besides me this season, and they're doing magnetic field studies at the moment.
(21:47:34) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Let's head to the Academy.
(21:48:13) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Examines the set as well:: SCI: She can win the fastest but he can block her he just needs to have a strategy
(21:48:14) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: BAR: Well what have you got, man? Hit me with your best warming drink.
(21:48:27) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: glances at Blackthorne as they walk :: CO: For what reason?
(21:48:59) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: At this stage, potential blocks are few and of an advanced nature.
(21:49:09) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns to look at her :: Ross is a freshman cadet now.
(21:49:39) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: <BAR_Humperdinck> ENG: Well. I would recommend paint thinner... but if you want something stronger, there's something the gang fixed up in a lab out of some...thing...
(21:50:25) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: BAR: One of those please, my boy. And don't skip on the blindness. ::Laughs.::
(21:50:46) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: But still possible
(21:50:50) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: thinks a moment to herself :: CO: Yes, he would be. How long has it been since you have spoken?
(21:51:02) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: arrives at a very wide, tall set of doors. He steps to the side where there is a control panel for the Holodeck inside :: COMPUTER: Computer. Generate the bridge of the USS Sedona, all bridge crew aboard except tactical. Ship is in an intense battle, lower safety to absolute minimums allowed.
(21:51:09) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: <COMPUTER>: :: chirps a few times :: Wolfe: Holodeck ready.
(21:51:37) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Not long by comm, but in person has been a while, of course.
(21:51:45) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: In this situation, considering the participants, it is unlikely.
(21:52:04) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: But possible :: Smiles:
(21:52:37) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: Is he expecting
(21:52:59) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: Remotely. :: lifts an eyebrow as Taril makes his move, managing to temporarily halt his opponent's progress ::
(21:53:08) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: standing outside a building in San Francisco, not pregnant, looking around with interest at all of the old vehicles parked nearby while she waited for Kate ::
(21:53:33) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Winks at T"Lira::
(21:53:37) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: checks the time :: XO: Yes. :: then gets a message :: But he wants to meet at Joe's Cable Car, since he doesn't necessarily want to be seen with an Admiral on campus. Fair enough.
(21:54:25) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: emerges from the building, clad in leather, with a helmet tucked under her arm and a bag in the other ::
(21:54:53) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: enters the holodeck, which is frozen in battle against ships he vaguely recognizes, as though he's read about them, but never actually seen them. At any rate, they are firing as he takes his position at tactical ::
(21:56:07) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: keeps quiet, acknowleding and accepting the information ::
(21:56:09) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: takes in Kate's obviously non-pregnant form clad from head to toe in leather and makes a low whistle :: Kate: Look at YOU.
(21:57:17) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: hands Lexy the bag and gestures back over her shoulder with her head :: Lexy: Look at you too after you get changed into these.
(21:58:18) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: catches a cab to the venerable burger joint ::
(21:58:49) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: accepts the bag, a little heavier than she was expecting, and lifts her eyebrows, looking from the bag to Kate :: Kate: These? Me? :: points to herself ::
(21:59:18) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: <BAR_Humperdinck> ::Returns with a clear liquid in a tall glass. While at first seeming unremarkable, on closer inspection a doorway to hell and damnation can be seen, as the liquid seemingly calls out forbodingly like a siren to the world.::
(21:59:26) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: looks her up and down :: Lexy: Yeah, you. Now hurry, because I want to see. :: grins ::
(21:59:35) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: BAR: It doesn't look so bad.
(21:59:43) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: Sorrel makes her next move and frowns slightly as she doesn't succeed in completing the puzzle :: MED: I estimate another three point five six minutes before the puzzle is solved.
(22:00:13) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: But by whom darling?
(22:00:36) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: Most likely Sorrel. She seems to be closest to success.
(22:00:46) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: <BAR_Humperdinck> ENG: No one here has the balls to drink it... and as a scientist, I can honestly say it's your funeral.
(22:01:07) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: squeaks and scampers back into the building, looking for a changing room ::
(22:01:16) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Returns the Academy issued items. Then they wrap up the paperwork for his file. Gives him his diploma and some Professors came by to give him a last lecture before giving him his official orders in writing to report to the USS Atlantis for duty once it's ready. He had the TL Chief send his items to his temporary quarters before going off to visit the 502 Club that a lot of famous Captains had been known to frequent in thei
(22:01:43) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: BAR: Bottoms up then old chap. If I get lairy at any point... just make sure I don't wander off into the ice fields.
(22:02:03) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: arrives at Joe's a few minutes early and gets them a table ::
(22:03:08) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: stares around at the interesting decor as they're seated ::
(22:03:25) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: But Taril could win if he made the right move
(22:03:58) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: True. However, it would appear that Sorrel is more experienced and thus has a far better chance of succeeding.
(22:03:58) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: He likely forgot about you and meat, but the fries are pretty good, at least.
(22:04:17) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Nothing is impossible
(22:04:25) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: in the changing room, hesitantly pulls on the leathers and checks out her backside in the mirror :: Self: Wow.
(22:04:33) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: I can think of a fair few things that are impossible.
(22:05:07) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: leans up against the wall as she waits ::
(22:05:33) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Nothing is impossible, Unlikely, Improbable, but never Impossible. Jean Luc Picard said that after he met Q
(22:06:14) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: The only thing that is for certain not impossible is the human tendency for optimism.
(22:06:27) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: would smoke a cig and crush it out with her boot, but she doesn't ::
(22:06:45) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Chuckles::
(22:07:13) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Downs that drink like a trooper, in a one-er. Sighs loudly as the 'acid blood of a demon tyrant' slides down his throat, warming him up inside; warming in the same way that Tholia is considered a fairly warm planet.::
(22:07:48) ENG_CdtBlackthorne: :: enters Joe's, resplendent in his cadet uniform, and looks around ::
(22:08:02) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: tugs at everything until it seems to fall into place, then pulls on the boots and checks herself out in the mirror one more time :: Self: Why am I wearing this? I guess I'm going to find out... here we go. :: picks up the now empty bag and heads back out to meet Kate. ::
(22:08:49) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: stands and waves as he sees Ross ::
(22:08:53) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Pulls out a cigarette. Hesitates to light it at first, thinking about how flammable that fire water with no name was. Be
(22:09:08) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: is distracted from a piece of art on the wall by Ian's movement and follows his gaze ::
(22:09:13) ENG_CdtBlackthorne: :: walks up and hugs his father :: Hi Dad!
(22:09:40) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: <BAR_Humperdinck> ENG: Not in here.
(22:09:41) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: stands too, studying Ross with a neutral-pleasant expression ::
(22:10:18) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: Sorrel makes her final move and the puzzle completes. As she offers Taril some advice on future play, he looks up. :: MED: I believe we have been detected.
(22:10:21) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: BAR: Well... poor me another, and I'll take my filthy habit outside.
(22:10:26) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: hugs his son tightly, then pulls back and looks at him :: Ross: Sharp as a tack in that uniform, but your mother must be piiiiiiiiiissed.
(22:10:52) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: I believe you are correct. Someone is excited to see his mother
(22:11:08) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: arches an eyebrow at Ian's comment and wonders if she's expected to hug Ross ::
(22:11:24) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: sees Lexy walk out clad in leather :: Lexy: Yes, now, look at YOU. Sploosh!
(22:11:59) SCI_LtJG_TLira: Taril> :: grins :: SCI: Hi Mom! :: looks over at Tyler and shyly waves :: Sorrel: Play again later. :: she nods ::
(22:12:29) ENG_CdtBlackthorne: Ian: Yeah, well, no way around that. She'll come around. :: smiles at T'Kirr as he and Ian sit :: Hi T'Kirr, I trust you're well?
(22:12:34) MED_Ens_DrSlade: Taril: Very nice to see you again my young friend
(22:12:41) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: <BAR_Humperdinck> ::Pours the old man another baryonic particle sweep to the face, and shoos Ilaihr off.::
(22:12:55) SCI_LtJG_TLira: Taril: Hello, Taril. I take it you are quite well?
(22:13:47) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: bows her head to him :: Ross: I am, thank you. You look well also.
(22:13:53) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: Does a little twirl for Kate's benefit :: Kate: Ah, you like what you see? :: grins ::
(22:14:13) SCI_LtJG_TLira: Taril> SCI: Yep! MED: It's really good to see you again! I didn't know you guys were gonna be back so soon!
(22:14:24) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Wooshes off like a phantom outside, with his drink in hand and his ciggie lit.::
(22:14:45) ENG_CdtBlackthorne: T'Kirr: Thank you, ma'am. Congratulations on the promotion.
(22:15:12) MED_Ens_DrSlade: Taril: Trust me, neither did we
(22:15:13) XO_Capt_TKirr: Ross: Ah. Thank you. How is the Academy?
(22:15:27) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: twitches :: Yes, very much so. Now, for the reason we are here... :: gestures around the side of the building ::
(22:15:34) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: sits ::
(22:15:51) SCI_LtJG_TLira: Taril> MED: Really? But Shari says that Starfleet always tell people where they're going. Don't they?
(22:15:53) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: is thrown over the captain and across the bridge but, with the safety systems in place, lands too softly for his liking. He regains his balance and gets back to his post ASAP, in time to see a communication notice, to notify the captain and put the comm on screen to see... a Naussican. THAT'S why that ship wasn't very familiar. ::
(22:16:15) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks blankly at the side of the building :: Kate: Um...
(22:16:19) ENG_CdtBlackthorne: T'Kirr/Ian: Difficult, but I figured it would be. Good thing I took those extra calculus classes in high school.
(22:16:44) CAG_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: Go on, I will follow.
(22:17:07) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Ross: You can handle it.
(22:17:16) MED_Ens_DrSlade: Taril: Of course they tell us, but sometimes they dont tell us until the very last second before we leave. :: Chuckles and pats his shoulder::
(22:17:54) SCI_LtJG_TLira: Taril: Shari has also not been on active duty in thirteen years. She may not know current procedure.
(22:18:33) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: follows her for the view ::
(22:18:37) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: confused, she walks slowly around the building, paying special attention to the sway of her hips since she's almost positive she's being watched ::
(22:19:13) XO_Capt_TKirr: Ross: What do you find most interesting so far?
(22:19:43) ENG_CdtBlackthorne: T'Kirr/Ian: Warp field theory and quantum slipstream dynamics.
(22:19:49) XO_Capt_TKirr: Waitress> :: appears :: May I take your ordahs?
(22:20:25) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: totally watches, and they find an antique motorcycle waiting around the corner ::
(22:20:26) SCI_LtJG_TLira: Taril> MED: Really? That kinda sounds like fun! It'd be an adventure. SCI: And Shari says it's only been three years.
(22:21:31) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Waitress> :: smiles :: Hi Joan, long time. Bacon cheeseburger and fries with a chocolate shake.
(22:23:11) MED_Ens_DrSlade: Taril: It is always an adventure
(22:23:26) SCI_LtJG_TLira: Taril> MED: I like adventures!
(22:23:39) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: stops in front of the motorcycle and looks back at Kate questioningly ::
(22:23:46) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: glances sideways at Ian :: I'll have fries, and do you have salad?
(22:24:12) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::The view from outside the facility, is breathtaking; and not just because it's -62°.
(22:24:37) CAG_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: I got into riding these back at the Academy, and still do in the holodeck now and then. It is good to see my old friend here is still around.
(22:24:39) XO_Capt_TKirr: Waitress> T'Kirr: Uh huh, we can make ya one darlin'. :: scribbles on a notepad, then darts her eyes to Ross: And you, young fellah?
(22:25:03) ENG_CdtBlackthorne: Waitress> :: gestures to Ian :: What he had.
(22:26:03) MED_Ens_DrSlade: Taril: So do I, but when you go on as many as we do. Life is the adventure!
(22:26:13) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks at the antique machine and back at Kate with wide eyes :: Kate: Riding? DO WE GET TO RIDE THIS? :: bounces up and down and claps her hands ::
(22:26:34) XO_Capt_TKirr: Waitress> :: smacking her gum and jotting it down :: Gotcha. Be back in a jiff.
(22:27:00) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: Indeed it is. Taril: We are currently on leave. Is there something you wish to do?
(22:27:09) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: pulls her hair back into a ponytail and climbs on :: Lexy: Yes we do!
(22:27:40) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::The plane of the milky way can be seen in pristine detail. The dark colours of the central dust cloud, illuminated by the galactic core. Ilaihr tokes his cigarette, sipping is chemical brew, and looking up pensively.::
(22:28:03) ENG_CdtBlackthorne: Ian/T'Kirr: So is the Atlantis repaired yet?
(22:28:26) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Approaches the bar at the 502 Club. :: Bartender: I'll have an Earth Ale!
(22:28:38) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: shakes head :: Ross: Full refit, she was one shot away from oblivion after that battle.
(22:28:54) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: holds out her hand expectantly :: Kate: Tell me you brought another tie.
(22:29:13) TAC_2LT_Randen: Bartender> Randen: What kind?
(22:29:18) SCI_LtJG_TLira: Taril> :: thinks really hard :: SCI: Can we go to the park? Please?
(22:29:19) MED_Ens_DrSlade: Taril: I am sure Lasagna is on the list, but is there anything else you want to do?
(22:29:40) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: reaches into her pocket and finds a spare hair tie :: Lexy: Here, and do not forget your helmet! :: puts hers on ::
(22:29:47) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Shrugs. :: Bartender: Surprise me... whatever's on tap.
(22:29:57) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ::Smiles at how something so simple could be so exciting::
(22:30:09) ENG_CdtBlackthorne: :: whistles :: Ian: Glad you made it. T'Kirr: Both of you.
(22:30:40) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: looks to Tyler :: MED: Would that be acceptable to you?
(22:30:41) TAC_2LT_Randen: Bartender> :: makes the young Lt. a mug of beer. :: Randen: There you go, kid.
(22:30:54) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: giggles with giddy excitement as she pulls up her own hair and pops the helmet over her head :: Kate: Where are we going?
(22:31:03) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Breathes in the fresh frozen air between tokes.:: Self: It is so peaceful here.
(22:31:11) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI/Taril: Sounds like fun to me
(22:31:18) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Kate* Where are we going? <helmet comms>
(22:31:38) CAG_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: Down old California highway 1. Hop on, hold on to me, and lean when I do.
(22:31:59) SCI_LtJG_TLira: Taril> MED/SCI: Yay! C'mon! Let's go! :: starts to head for the door. Shari just shakes her head and returns to her book ::
(22:32:24) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: chuckles :: Ross: So are we. Glad that's over with.
(22:32:42) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Sips his beer, looking around the club. :: Bartender: Thanks! :: The bartender just nods back, wiping down his bar with a rag. ::
(22:33:01) XO_Capt_TKirr: Ross: How long have you been interested in becoming a Starfleet engineer?
(22:33:04) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Whispers to T'Lira:: SCI: So when are we going to tell him
(22:33:54) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: whispers back :: MED: I am unsure. Perhaps after he is worn out. He seems rather hyper right now and such news would only increase the problem.
(22:34:00) ENG_CdtBlackthorne: T'Kirr: Dad's always been sneaking me models of ships, despite Mom wanting me to have nothing to do with Starfleet.... so always?
(22:34:18) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: pops a sharp salute in response and waits for Kate to get settled on the bike before hopping on behind her :: *Kate* Oh! Is that by the ocean? :: wraps her arms around Kate's middle, snuggling up against her back, as much as it's possible for two people in leather to snuggle ::
(22:34:26) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: puts her foot down hard and starts the old bike ::
(22:34:47) CAG_Cdr_Harper: *Lexy* Much of it, yes. Beautiful forests as well.
(22:35:23) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Gulty as charged.
(22:35:25) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Ill follow your lead
(22:35:38) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: eyes widen inside the helmet at the powerful vibration that just kicked on beneath her :: *Kate* Uh-huh... :: distracted ::
(22:36:06) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: faintly lifts an eyebrow and heads after Taril, who is nearly out the door by this point ::
(22:36:38) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: nods to herself ::
(22:36:57) CAG_Cdr_Harper: *Lexy* Be sure to grip the seat with your thighs as well. Hold on, here we go! :: leans forward, picks up her feet, and gently throttles the bike out of the parking lot ::
(22:37:02) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Follows the very quick little one::

(22:38:16) ENG_CdtBlackthorne: Ian/T'Kirr: I'm already working on my term project. I can send it along if you want to see; it's about field fluctuations at high warp.
(22:39:08) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Ross: Be glad to read it. High warp is my favorite kind of warp.
(22:39:11) SCI_LtJG_TLira: Taril> :: steps out of the door before realizing that he got a bit ahead and slows his pace so that the others can catch up. ::
(22:39:24) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Kate* Oh, uh, yep! :: grips with her legs to be sure she stays firmly in her seat ::
