(21:25:27) VAdmBlackthorne: :: in the command offices of the Vinland, getting the update on the Altantis's refit ::
(21:28:58) VAdmBlackthorne: :: exits, PADD under his arm, looking pleased ::
(21:29:01) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: putting a last few things into her bag, looking around her quarters on the Odyssey to make sure she got everything, even if it wasn't much to begin with. ::
(21:29:23) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: walks the corridors of Atlantis at a quick, four-legged trot, dodging workmen still at open bulkhead panels ::
(21:29:55) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: catches Blackthorne as he exits with an inquiring expression ::
(21:30:33) VAdmBlackthorne: XO: All the major things are complete. It's just a ton of minor work left.
(21:31:09) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: falls into step beside Blackthorne and they walk :: CO: Are you able to be more specific?
(21:31:45) VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Bulkhead reattachments, minor systems, replicator menus, et cetera.
(21:32:15) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: steps into the aromory of Atlantis, a ship on which he has spent so few hours, though he has now spent time as a part of her crew. PADD in hand, he takes inventory of the weapons on hand and that of which a full complement consists.
(21:32:18) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: ::
(21:32:33) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: takes this in, eyeing the report in his hand, eager to organize and assign crewmen ::
(21:32:50) VAdmBlackthorne: :: hands her the PADD ::
(21:33:02) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: lifts the bag and heads out, back towards the Atlantis ::
(21:33:26) VAdmBlackthorne: XO: She needs to be re-armed as well, and of course a lot of system calibrations.
(21:34:57) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: has collected Anna from the boarding facility aboard Vinland and taken her back to her familiar quarters aboard Atlantis, her shore leave bag yet to be unpacked, sprawled across the bed poring over sensor data from Gencodia on her PADD and absently stroking the cat ::
(21:36:14) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: takes the PADD and multi-tasks her brain into listening, speaking and reading simultaneously :: CO: I'll get with Vinland's teams currently aboard and coordinate our people to assist efficiently.
(21:36:41) VAdmBlackthorne: XO: I thought you might.
(21:38:51) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: arrives back in her quarters aboard Atlantis, formerly the XO's quarters, and is impressed at the redesign as she tosses her bag on the bed ::
(21:39:11) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: trying specifically to NOT think of Kate, who is becoming increasingly distant for some unknown reason ::
(21:40:14) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: plops onto the bed, even though it's new and everything in the room is different, it's still home for the first time in what seems like forever ::
(21:40:50) VAdmBlackthorne: :: heading toward the docking bridge to Atlantis ::
(21:41:07) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: reaches her quarters on the Atlantis and notices that they're almost exactly the same as she remembers them. Odd, that such a thought would be the first to come to mind. ::
(21:41:15) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: reads over the PADD as they walk, using Ian's body as a guide to follow ::
(21:43:20) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: eventually enters Engineering and looks up at the warp core, too dark while offline ::
(21:43:56) VAdmBlackthorne: :: crosses the bridge onto Atlantis and unconsciously smiles ::
(21:46:57) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: doesn't notice ::
(21:47:59) VAdmBlackthorne: XO: The upgraded warp core isn't active yet, so not much point checking that out yet. Want to see our quarters?
(21:49:06) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: looks up from the PADD :: CO: Sure.
(21:49:35) VAdmBlackthorne: :: enters the TL and directs it to deck four ::
(21:49:42) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: stands and stretches, then scoops up the purring cat and takes her over to the sleekly redesigned computer console, depositing Anna in her lap while she transfers the sensor data from the PADD to the shipboard computer. :: Computer, display 3D model of Gencodia with sensor data overlay. :: turns it this way and that, distracting herself with Science ::
(21:50:01) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: moves in the armory from the hand phasers to the phaser rifles, continuing to tally and make sure the proper number of weapons are coming and will be on hand by the time Atlantis leaves Vinland ::
(21:50:23) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: lets out a long breath and rises from the bed, then starts to unpack her bag ::
(21:50:35) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: is awed and moves on from Engineering, taking the TL ::
(21:51:48) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: the bag is now on the bed and the only problem at the moment is where exactly to put the stack of PADDs she'd brought along. They would clutter the desk, but the shelves would be unsuitable as well. Quite a dilemma ::
(21:51:58) VAdmBlackthorne: :: exits the TL and walks the familiar path to their quarters ::
(21:53:06) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: exits TL on Deck Seven and trots into the Armory ::
(21:53:49) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: takes a PADD out and turns it on to find a picture of her and Lexy on Risa being displayed, runs her hand over it ::
(21:53:55) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: besides actually working, is also working hard to look very busy in case anyone should walk in and want to interact with him ::
(21:55:36) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: creates a prioritized list of sites to survey and then sighs, turning to her bag :: Anna: I should probably unpack, huh. I guess I can't avoid it forever.
(21:55:50) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: notes that Wolfe looks busy and sits on the floor nearby to wait, staring at him ::
(21:56:20) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: drops the PADD on the bed and exits her quarters, not bothering to even change out of her uniform ::
(21:56:57) VAdmBlackthorne: :: walks through the doors and looks around, everything looking crisp and clean ::
(21:57:08) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: doesn't look up from the PADD until they've reached their quarters, then she turns her interests to the inside ::
(21:58:04) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: "Captain's Quarters"...does that make it officially mine, now?
(21:58:10) VAdmBlackthorne: :: not many of their things have been moved back in, but the painting they bought on the cruise ship to Risa is on the wall ::
(21:58:23) VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Ha, I suppose it does, Captain.
(21:58:37) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: finally decides to set the PADDs in a neat stack on the desk for now and move on to putting her clothes back where they belong ::
(21:58:39) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: arrives at the door to Lexy's quarters and rings the chime ::
(21:59:30) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: finishes with the rifles and carbines and moves on to the ship's torpedos, muttering to himself that they need to stock more than they have in the past. He makes a note on his PADD to also see about increasing the ratio of quantum to photon torpedos, though he does not expect success in gaining cooperation from Starfleet. ::
(21:59:31) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: notes the painting on the wall ::
(21:59:56) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: blinks ::
(22:00:56) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: dumping Anna back onto the bed, lifts her bag onto the bed as well, opening it to pull out the Risan garb and the hor'gahn, then swiftly stuffing them back inside at the sound of the chime and brushes fruitlessly at the cat hair on her uniform :: Door: Come in.
(22:01:52) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: walks through the door, half-smiling ::
(22:02:33) VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Well, we're home.
(22:02:42) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: stops and raises his head, feeling a sense of being watched. He does not like it and looks around, noticing Kuari watching him intently. :: SEC: :: with NO humor in his voice whatsoever :: Yes, Lieutenant?
(22:03:22) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: nods curtly :: CTO: Sir. Don't mean to disturb you. Just checking in, sir.
(22:03:30) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: cautiously brightens :: Kate: Kate! :: steps toward her ::
(22:03:45) NAV_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: Hey!
(22:04:06) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: turns to face Kuari :: SEC: Yes. You are... Lieutenant Kuari. Correct? :: sizes her up ::
(22:04:11) VAdmBlackthorne: :: takes a look in the bedroom and bathroom, noting the upgrades ::
(22:06:05) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: lowers her head slightly, unconsciously :: CTO: Oh, yes. Sorry. Second Lieutenant. Standing by for if you need me. :: glances to the side, hesitating, before looking back at him :: I'm allowed to sit on the floor at attention. Sir.
(22:08:01) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: It's pleasing.
(22:08:35) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: pauses for a moment and remembers something, looking through the bag to find it. When she does, she pulls out the picture frame and sets it on the bedside table. All of a sudden, the quarters seem to brighten a bit, however illogical a thing that may be ::
(22:08:43) VAdmBlackthorne: XO: It'll be better once our things are here, of course, but... it's Atlantis.
(22:09:15) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: hesitates, then goes for the hug ::
(22:09:46) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: The same ship that's carried us so far. :: places her hand on the arch separating rooms :: What wasn't replaced, anyway.
(22:09:53) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: embraces her, tentatively at first, and then tightly ::
(22:10:42) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks Kuari up and down, as though condescendingly, then returns eye contact :: SEC: I see. I'll not be changing that, though I assume if you stood upright you would be one of few crewmembers who could look down on me. Tell me about your hand-to-hand combat style, your strengths and weaknesses.
(22:11:06) VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Even if she has some new clothes, she's still Atlantis.
(22:12:33) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: smiles at the reassurance of a tight hug :: Kate: I'm glad to see you. To what do I owe the pleasure?
(22:12:34) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: turns around to continue working while listening to Kuari. ::
(22:13:58) NAV_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: I, well... no reason, actually. Other than just wanting to see you.
(22:14:01) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: Agreed. :: wanders over to the bed. It needs coverings, and she finds herself wanting to replicate them immediately, but then glances at the PADD in her hand and tells herself to organize her priorities ::
(22:16:15) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: straightens her back a little, surprised by the question, but nods curtly again :: CTO: Very good in a melee, sir. Best all my sparring partners, although there was this one Klingon... Um. Anyway, not so good with ranged combat, although I do pass. I have a custom EVA suit, so I can participate in most missions.
(22:16:34) VAdmBlackthorne: :: sees that their travel bags have at least arrived, grabs his and digs through it ::
(22:17:50) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: smiles up at her, taking her hands :: Kate: That's an excellent reason, I'd say. Did you get settled in to your quarters?
(22:18:43) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: makes a mental note to arrange for a few... modifications to the quarters before continuing to put clothes and books away ::
(22:18:53) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: squeezes her hands :: Lexy: Only long enough to fall onto the bed and be glad to finally be back here.
(22:19:56) VAdmBlackthorne: :: takes out a book and a picture of them together and puts them on a shelf ::
(22:20:09) SEC_Lt_Kuari: CTO: My wings are functional. :: half-extends one wing as if demonstrating :: I'm also an excellent mimic to voices and other sounds, although I haven't used that in a tactical situation to date. I've been aboard Atlantis for years, and I'm very familiar with her systems, sir.
(22:20:11) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: nods :: Kate: I agree, it's nice to be home. :: laughs as the cat butts her leg and meows :: Anna: I know, you're glad to be home too.
(22:20:38) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: notes their bags and goes for hers ::
(22:21:30) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: reaches down and scratches the kitty behind the ears ::
(22:22:13) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Anna> :: purrs loudly at Kate ::
(22:22:17) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: turns around as though he has finally heard something useful :: SEC: You have been aboard Atlantis for how many years?
(22:26:12) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: notes that several of her books are becoming rather worn and would do best to not be transferred as often as they have been recently ::
(22:26:18) SEC_Lt_Kuari: CTO: Six, sir. :: finds herself surprised that he's not as interested in her unique physical attributes as so many are ::
(22:27:19) VAdmBlackthorne: :: places his travel humidor on the shelf as well, along with a bottle of scotch :: There.
(22:28:24) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: glances over from what she's doing and notes Ian's usual preoccupation with the alcoholic beverage ::
(22:28:41) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Kate: So, do you want to come in and sit down? Or shall we go somewhere together?
(22:28:48) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: SEC: Six years. I see. Hmm. :: thinks a moment before abruptly changing the subject :: I would like to watch your fighting style. I am going to Holodeck 3. You're with me.
(22:29:54) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: rises to all fours and makes to follow :: CTO: Yes, sir. Is Holodeck 3 operational?
(22:30:00) NAV_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: I... we could... well, it does not matter to me. :: sits down ::
(22:30:29) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: SEC: It is. :: begins walking to the nearest turbolift ::
(22:32:04) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: surreptitiously sniffs in Wolfe's direction as he proceeds her, before she can resist ::
(22:33:05) VAdmBlackthorne: :: distributes the rest of the stuff from his bag where it would usually go, but there's not much ::
(22:33:27) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Kate: We could check out some of the rebuilt ship, or see if we can find something to eat, if you like. :: but sits next to Kate on the couch as she speaks, tentatively reaching for her hand ::
(22:33:48) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: wants to figure out her new senior officer, watching the way he moves, and silently follows until spoken to ::
(22:34:58) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: places the meager number of garments in a drawer and presses it closed ::
(22:36:17) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: takes her hand :: Lexy: No, this is fine, just fine.
(22:37:37) VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Not much else to see here, then. Shall we head to the bridge?
(22:38:25) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: Ah. Yes. :: eagerly snatches up the PADD from the dresser ::
(22:39:16) VAdmBlackthorne: :: exits with her to the TL :: Bridge!
(22:39:24) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: stops for a moment and notes that everything seems to be in its proper place so far. Although... one of the meditation candles looks off ever so slightly ::
(22:39:29) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: exits the turbolift at Deck 15 with Kuari in tow and stops at Holodeck 3. :: Computer: Computer, run program, Wolfe 775, Difficulty - :: turns to size up Kuari once again :: - Seven. :: When the Holodeck is ready, Wolfe enters and turns to Kuari. ::
(22:39:30) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: SEC: Lieutenant. You will take on all enemies you encounter here. My suggestion is that you show me everything. As you perform, I will increase the difficulty of the simulation to your breaking point. Do you understand?
(22:41:20) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: swallows, suddenly nervous when up to this point she hadn't been :: CTO: Understood.
(22:42:07) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: worried that the silence is awkward, tries to fill it with a safe topic, leaving her many questions hanging in the air :: Kate: I've only been here for about twenty minutes, myself... and I spent most of that time looking at the sensor data from Gencodia. I wish we could have followed up on some of that! I was looking at a 3D model with a sensor overlay, and... :: natters on a bit ::
(22:42:19) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: SEC: Good. Do you have any questions?
(22:43:34) VAdmBlackthorne: :: walks out onto the bridge, which looks much better than the last time he saw it ::
(22:43:41) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: thinks quickly. It's just a training simulation, as so many she has done before. Kill targets, as they're just holographic. :: CTO: No, sir! I'm ready!
(22:44:57) NAV_Cdr_Harper: :: smiling and nodding, glad to be here ::
(22:45:00) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: calmly, but with great purpose :: SEC: Good. Then you may begin. :: Steps back a ways :: Computer, begin program.
(22:45:03) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: is very pleased with the state of the Bridge, and can't help but feel how small it now seems compared to their short time on the Odyssey ::
