(21:13:15) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: prepares for docking maneuvers ::
(21:14:25) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: *Odyssey* Odyssey, this is Aquarius. Request clearance to dock.
(21:14:33) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::stands on the bridge watching the viewscreen, starting to feel a little claustrophobic after a further few days onboard the cramped Aquarius::
(21:14:55) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Does a tactical analysis of the Odyssey. And says to himself. :: She's a thing of beauty.
(21:15:32) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: ensures once again that all tactical systems are stowed and secured in their full, upright and locked position ::
(21:15:57) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> The Atlantis comes in to view as we pass through the spacedoors, and she's looking somewhat better, but obviously not complete yet.
(21:16:54) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: looks from the Odyssey to the Atlantis and smiles ::
(21:16:59) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: can't help but survey Atlantis as she's in view ::
(21:17:39) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: She's looking healthier....
(21:19:33) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: It's difficult to tell just how much on the inside, but yes.
(21:19:46) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: obtains the clearance required :: Bridge: Beginning docking maneuvers. :: slowly eases Aquarius toward Odyssey ::
(21:20:34) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Considering the battle damage, though, that's a significant improvement.
(21:21:25) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: Indeed.
(21:21:27) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: observes Suzuki's performance while she docks for his final report to Harper ::
(21:23:16) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: on the Seraphim, reading, when she hears an alert from the helm ::

(21:24:12) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Looks at the Atlantis as fond battle memories run through his head. He smiles at their ship and can't wait to get back. ::
(21:24:31) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Well done.
(21:24:44) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: All: That concludes our fun with the state-of-the-art stealth ship!
(21:25:01) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: begins supervising power down sequences from her panel ::
(21:25:08) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: wonders how one could term the recent mission as "fun" ::
(21:25:11) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks up from her reading at the alert ::
(21:25:33) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: gets up, walks to the helm and sits :: Lexy: We will be arriving within the hour.
(21:25:42) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Thank you, Sir.
(21:25:58) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: All: Great job on this mission. Power down your stations and report aboard the Odyssey. Starbase staff will transfer your temporary quarters aboard ship.
(21:26:39) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Recall the rest of our crew that we left aboard Vinland to the Odyssey as well.
(21:26:54) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: taps in the required sequence to power down the science station ::
(21:27:01) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: gives Kate a tight smile :: Kate: Well, I guess I'd better get changed, then.

(21:28:55) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: pats the chair arm as he stands ::
(21:30:11) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: shuts down the helm systems ::
(21:31:17) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: walks briskly off the bridge and to the docking port ::
(21:31:57) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::heads along with everyone else, his tired bones aching a little at the thought of another temporary stop before they'd be back onboard the Atlantis with the rest of his stuff::
(21:33:23) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: checks to make sure that the station is indeed powered down before heading for the exit with the others ::
(21:33:44) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: stands, dropping her PADD on the seat, and walks toward the back to change into her uniform ::
(21:33:52) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: steps out onto the Odyssey and asks an Ensign for permission to come aboard ::
(21:34:41) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: smiles as the Ensign stammers his permission, then marshals the several crew he has with him aboard Aquarius to get their stuff ::
(21:35:28) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: duty done, switches off main bridge power after everyone else is done and exits the Bridge ::
(21:35:36) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: ensures the Bridge is secure and then leaves, motioning Randen and Kuari to follow in his usual, unfriendly command style ::
(21:35:54) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: walks back to change as well, the trip of several days having warranted something more casual than a uniform ::
(21:36:08) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: makes her way to the Odyssey ::
(21:38:22) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: makes his way to the Odyssey's bridge ::
(21:39:10) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: boards the Odyssey and takes a few moments to do a mental tossup of whether to visit the science labs first or the bridge. The bridge is the more logical option ::
(21:40:08) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::follows the CO, glancing about to the unfinished bulkhead panelling and the open circuits surrounded by R&D staff. He turns to the Admiral with a touch of humour in his voice:: CO: Are we sure the Odyssey is in any better condition than the Atlantis?
(21:40:12) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: sheds her casual clothes and replicates a uniform, and regards it a moment ::
(21:40:56) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CMO: :: chuckles :: If something on this ship doesn't work, it's for a different reason, at least.
(21:40:59) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: leads the way to the Bridge, not caring if any of his entourage are following him. That's on them. And if they're not, there'll be hell to pay later ::
(21:42:49) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: holds up the uniform :: Been a while.
(21:43:44) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: pulling off the last of their casual clothes :: Kate: It has, even with a brief interlude of STAR.
(21:43:57) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: her casual clothes, even ::
(21:44:38) CAG_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: Yes, that was mostly the suit, anyway. Too bad we did not get to keep those.
(21:45:08) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: steps out onto the bridge to find engineering and R&D teams hurrying to get everything ready for a test flight ::
(21:45:33) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: offers a wry smile :: Kate: Mm, yes. Too bad indeed.
(21:46:51) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::looks around the huge bridge, noting the transport pad at the back with steps leading down to the command center:: CO: Interesting layout...I'm not sure where to stand. ::finds a spot with a railing he can lean against::
(21:47:07) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: walks out with Blackthorne, surveying the work all around them ::
(21:47:46) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Takes the rear position of the group moving from one bridge to the other. ::
(21:47:48) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CMO: I'm not sure they accomodated doctors who prefer to hang out on the bridge in their designs. Not sure why they wouldn't though; it's a fine Starfleet tradition.
(21:47:52) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: ends up making a detour to the science labs to see what they could potentially do. They could potentially do quite a lot. ::
(21:48:39) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::tests out this railing's leaning capability and the view it affords:: CO: Too right! Maybe I should note that in my assessment.
(21:49:00) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: R&D Chief Mendez> :: approaches the Admiral :: Sir, I'm Chief Mendez. We will be ready to depart shortly. Your crew will be helpful since we have yet to see how our new systems will be received.
(21:49:52) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks down at the uniform on the bench next to her, considering everything that putting it back on means ::
(21:50:49) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: pulls on her uniform, admiring Lexy's underwear-clad form, then notes that she's hesitating :: Are you alright?
(21:51:04) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Mendez: Thanks, Chief. We'll do our best.
(21:52:30) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: arrives on the bridge and finds she is not disappointed by it. This ship is proving to be quite interesting ::
(21:52:33) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Mendez> I am certain of it, sir. :: scurries away, something else to check on, as always ::
(21:53:33) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Computer, transfer command of this vessel to Vice Admiral Ian Blackthorne, effective immediately, authorization :: lots of greek letters ::
(21:54:19) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Computer> CO: Command successfully transferred and noted in the ship's log.
(21:54:36) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::decides to take up a station instead, picking one of the auxiliary Science spots and bringing up the life support systems and other assorted dealies that he'd know about::
(21:54:41) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: turns and takes in the bridge, looking at all the stations ::
(21:55:37) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: takes the primary science station for the moment, running through a series of checks ::
(21:56:25) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: turns and approaches Kate, pulling her down for a lingering kiss, then looks her deeply in the eyes for a long moment :: Kate: :: softly :: I understand why things have to be this way, but I'm still going to miss it. :: returns to her uniform and begins to dress ::
(21:57:31) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: It's impressive.
(21:57:44) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: speechless for a moment, surprised by Lexy's reaction ::
(21:58:11) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Quite. I still prefer Atlantis though. :: chuckles ::
(22:02:29) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: licks her lips and finishes zipping up her uniform, thinks it best not to say anything ::
(22:04:05) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: sits down in the center seat and shifts around a bit ::
(22:05:28) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: zips herself in and smooths everything down, then packs her things into her bag before turning around, her demeanor decidedly more professional :: Kate: Okay. All set.
(22:06:20) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Bridge: Alright, let's see what we have. :: notes T'Lira is already at Science :: SCI: How's Science look?
(22:06:35) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: gets to know the tactical panel. Other than a few not-so-intuitive placements, it's pretty straightforward. ::
(22:07:01) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: peeks at Science, and continues to rove around until she reaches her area next to Blackthorne, dodging engineering crew ::
(22:07:08) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: looks up :: CO: It appears to be quite well.
(22:07:32) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: finally smiles and stows her gear :: Lexy: You certainly know how to make a point.
(22:07:55) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CTO: Tactical, Major?
(22:08:36) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: makes her way back to the front and takes the pilot's seat ::
(22:08:40) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Looks at the Tactical console over the Major's shoulder. ::
(22:10:09) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Everything is in order, Sir.
(22:10:31) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CMO: Medical?
(22:11:21) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: stows her gear as well and joins Kate up front :: Kate: It was a point worth making. I've got Vinland on long-range sensors.
(22:11:34) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::confirms the status of all life support systems:: CO: Medical systems check out, Admiral.
(22:12:01) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: familiarizes herself with the controls of her mini console and accesses internal sensors ::
(22:12:40) CAG_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: Setting us on final approach. :: files the flight plan to Odyssey with Vinland control :: And yes, it was.
(22:14:36) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: How much of our crew do we have aboard?
(22:16:38) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: flies along a long arc that accounts for the station's rotation and end up right on course for the doors ::
(22:16:50) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: They are still making their way onboard. They haven't had long since I put out the recall.
(22:17:29) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: notes the empty NAV Console and the lack of Wright at Science and nods ::
(22:18:08) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Bridge: Take the time to familiarize yourself with these systems. :: gets up and sits at the helm, checking out the new piloting controls ::
(22:19:02) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: requests docking permission from Odyssey ::
(22:20:26) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: glides in through the spacedoors and approaches the Odyssey, but notices the Atlantis ::
(22:20:55) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: also notices Atlantis :: Kate: She's looking... better.
(22:20:59) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: tests out the sensors by seeing how far they will sweep. Is not disappointed ::
(22:21:21) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: smiles :: Lexy: Yes, she really is.
(22:22:00) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: gets a notifications that a shuttle Seraphim is requesting clearance to dock. Taps the key that grants it and wonders who is aboard the shuttle ::
(22:22:31) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: slows up as they approach the Odyssey's shuttlebay ::
(22:22:37) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: takes a moment to figure out where all the phaser banks and torpedo launchers are located, thinking out how to best use them for a tactical advantage ::
(22:25:09) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: sees the clearance arrive and glides Seraphim to a gentle landing in Odyssey's shuttlebay ::
(22:26:59) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: wills herself not to tear up :: Kate: Nice landing,... Commander. :: gets up and collects her belongings ::
(22:28:51) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: powers the shuttle down and grabs her gear :: Lexy: Thank you. :: opens the hatch and steps down to find a crewman with a PADD ::
(22:29:28) CAG_Cdr_Harper: Crewman> Commanders Harper and Wright, yes? May I take your gear? I'll get it to your quarters.
(22:29:52) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: hands off her gear :: Crewman: Thank you.
(22:30:09) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: frowns at sensors a moment before understanding :: CO: It appears Commanders Harper and Wright have just arrived via shuttle.
(22:30:12) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: hands hers off as well :: Crewman: Thank you.
(22:30:17) CAG_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: Shall we get to the bridge?
(22:30:50) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Kate: Lets. :: heads for a nearby turbolift ::
(22:31:34) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Ah, good. How many more are we missing?
(22:32:00) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: there's one question answered. Hearing that, she moves over to an auxiliary science station, leaving the primary station open ::
(22:32:12) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar left the room (quit: Quit: ).
(22:32:15) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: enters the TL with Lexy :: Bridge.
(22:32:21) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: Eight, but all have acknowledged orders and are en route.
(22:32:49) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Make ready for departure.
(22:32:58) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: That should speed them up.
(22:33:01) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: quietly reaches over and squeezes Kate's hand while staring at the TL door ::
(22:33:21) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: squeezes it back, then the door opens and they exit onto the bridge ::

(22:36:08) NAV_Cdr_Harper: CO/SCI: Thank you. It is good to be back. :: somewhat flatly ::
(22:36:36) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CSO: Granted. :: gestures to the helm :: NAV: I think you'll find it interesting.
(22:36:40) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: nods and returns to her work in testing to see just what these systems can do ::
(22:37:09) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: slides into the OPS/SCI station and immediately begins fiddling with all the fiddly bits ::

(22:38:23) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: All are aboard.
(22:38:45) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Excellent. All hands, make ready for departure.

(22:41:44) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Vinland* Thank you, Vinland, Odyssey out. CO/NAV: Departure clearance obtained.
(22:42:01) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CSO: Thank you Commander. Congratulations on your promotion, by the way.

(22:47:50) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: reads T'Lira's message and begins to reply, then receives T'Kirr's request and quickly sets about compiling reports for Science and Ops ::
(22:48:31) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: shrugs and sets a course for "that way" at a leisurely warp eight :: CO: Ready.
