(21:37:09) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CMO: Oh don't I remember. Whew, some of those instructors.
(21:37:31) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: leans forward on the desk :: CMO: They must have gotten soft.

(21:43:54) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::shakes his head, glancing down slightly at his lap before meeting the man's gaze:: CO: Afraid not. Never enough time, there's always something else that needs doing, another world that needs saving - you know the drill.

(22:27:29) CAG_Cdr_Harper: *PDX* Sending it along now, thank you control.
(22:27:31) XO_Capt_TKirr: *CEO* Thank you, Mr. Quinn. Stand by.
(22:27:34) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: totally acknowledged the Admiral when he came on the Bridge, 100% ::
(22:28:33) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Are we ready to depart?
(22:28:41) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: nods to Lexy :: Mind sending that along?
(22:29:16) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: turns to his console after burning a hole in the back of Randen's head and familiarizes himself with the controls. He runs the systems through their paces. :: XO: Tactical systems ready. Sir.
(22:29:26) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: fusses about, stowing their bags appropriately before taking the second seat :: Kate: What? Oh, the flight plan. Yes, :: taps keys :: it is transmitting.
(22:29:43) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: walks onto the Bridge and notes it's full, then sits near the Tactical console, checking in with Wolfe ::
(22:29:50) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Grins about his new friendship as he scans with the long range sensors. As predicted, nothing this close to Earth. ::
(22:30:10) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: checking on the engine output, and is finally satisfied, she lifts off and does a slow ascending circle around the skyport, ending on heading 110 degrees ::
(22:30:53) XO_Capt_TKirr: SCI: Ms T'Lira, are you ready for departure?
(22:31:02) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: sees that Lexy's seated, and floors it for orbit ::
(22:31:33) SCI_LtJG_TLira: XO: As far as I am aware, yes. :: what an odd question... ::
(22:32:08) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: All departments check in, prepared for departure.
(22:32:21) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: All crew aboard.
(22:32:24) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Thank you, Captain.
(22:32:40) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: acknowledges Kuari the least he can ::
(22:32:46) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: SCI: Obtain departure clearance from the dockmaster, then transfer to internal power.
(22:33:42) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: climbs steeply at first, then into a shallower climb as the shuttle flies faster and faster ::
(22:34:26) SCI_LtJG_TLira: *ESD Control* Spacedock Control, this is the USS Aquarius, requesting clearance for departure.
(22:35:04) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Control> *Aquarius* Clearance granted, Aquarius.
(22:35:14) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: sits back in her chair, not much for her to do at this point, completely unaware that her crew is on the Aquarius relatively nearby ::
(22:35:46) SCI_LtJG_TLira: *ESD Control* Acknowledged, Spacedock. :: transfers all systems to Aquarius' internal power ::
(22:35:49) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: the Seraphim makes orbit, and she lays in a course for Vinland at warp five ::
(22:37:27) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar left the room (quit: Quit: ).
(22:38:18) SEC_Lt_Kuari: : waits until Wolfe is finished checking in :: CTO: Sir. Do you have orders?
(22:38:25) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: does a slow roll first to get a beautiful view of Earth out the front windows ::
(22:38:38) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Clear all moorings and take us out the spacedoors. :: can hear the power transfer ::
(22:39:01) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: ooos at the view ::
(22:39:13) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Smiles as the lights come up to full illumination around him, and releases energized plasma into the nacelles, so as to make warp available when it's needed in a minute. ::
(22:39:56) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Aye, Sir. :: engages thrusters ::
(22:39:59) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: does not look up from his station :: SEC: If I have orders, I will give them to you. Take the Auxilliary station next to :: turns to Randen :: TAC: What's your name?
(22:40:04) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: watches, enjoying the view ::
(22:40:06) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Rubs his eyes, finding it hard to focus on his console.::
(22:40:23) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: smiles a bit and engages the warp drive, and the Seraphim warps away ::
(22:41:35) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: sighs as the view of home disappears :: Self: I wonder how long it will be before I come back...
(22:42:04) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Bridge: Time to get this little ship back to her home. At least we will be able to take a more direct route than we took to get here.
(22:42:54) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Sits in the very tiny sickbay awaiting the jump::
(22:43:02) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: Straight lines are just no fun sir. Where's the adventure?
(22:43:02) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: We are... clear of the spacedoors, Sir.
(22:43:20) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Set a course for Starbase Vinland, warp six.
(22:43:46) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ENG: We left it in about four nebulae on our way here.
(22:43:53) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Enjoys the quiet while it lasts. ::
(22:44:11) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: looks from Wolfe to Randen, then at the small space beyond them, the space she doesn't think she can fit into. Instead, she waits for Randen to respond to Wolfe before asking him :: TAC: Are you attached to that station? Will you take the other and I have yours?
(22:44:28) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: checks that everything is nominal once they're at warp, and satisfied, she turns to Lexy :: On our way.
(22:44:40) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Chuckles.::
(22:44:56) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Aye, Sir. :: fingers fly across the console as she lays in the course she'd programmed earlier in anticipation of this order :: Course laid in. Ready to engage at warp six.
(22:45:17) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Engage!
(22:45:26) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: engages ::
(22:45:32) TAC_2LT_Randen: CTO: I AM RANDEN, SECOND LIEUTENANT and TACTICAL OFFICER! :: Randen tells his Chief proudly as if reading off his accomplishments. ::
(22:45:53) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Aquarius warps off toward Vinland as well, though a bit faster.
(22:46:20) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: turns back to Kuari :: SEC: Next to Second Lieutenant Randen and do your duty.
(22:46:23) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: can't help but turn her head and watch Tactical ::
(22:46:32) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: ditto ::
(22:46:35) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Kate: So we are.
(22:46:59) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: notes the conversation at tactical as she scrolls through a database ::
(22:47:04) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: wonders why people are shouting on the Bridge ::
(22:47:06) CAG_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: You can still look at me, you know...
(22:47:51) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks at Kate :: Sorry, I just... sorry.
(22:48:43) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: tenderly :: It is alright.
(22:49:16) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::His other hand starts tapping at the console uncontrollably. Puts it in his lap like the other, and waits for it to subside.::
(22:50:38) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Once they're underway and all systems still show nominal, he locks his console for a moment, and steps out to the nearest replicator slot. :: Iced coffee, French Vanilla. Cream, and, uh...make it two and a HALF teaspoons of sugar.
(22:50:45) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Kate: It's a good thing you're worth the trouble.
