(21:21:43) CO_Capt_Harper: :: the ship having arrived at the rendezvous the night before, she arrives on the bridge with her hair done up in a french twist instead of its usual casual ponytail, and actually wearing her forehead ornament while on duty ::
(21:22:58) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: notes the forehead ornament with approval per their discussion the previous evening, and the new hairstyle with mild surprise ::
(21:23:52) CO_Capt_Harper: :: looks around the bridge to see who is here, and finds Lexy :: Commander, status?
(21:24:12) AUX_Jorvan_Tav: :: is sitting in Ten Forward, keeping a little bit out of the way ::
(21:24:13) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: enters TR1 and spots Syvek ::
(21:24:25) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: stands at Tactical on the Bridge.
(21:24:29) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: :: nods cordially to Kuari :: Lieutenant.
(21:25:51) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: references her console :: CO: The Osprey showed up on long-range not long ago, ETA is approximately 5 minutes at their current speed. Nothing else of note to report.
(21:26:05) SEC_Lt_Kuari: SEC: Hey! :: sits next to Syvek, only a little lower than eye level as he stands :: So...there's a new XO.
(21:26:30) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Is in the TL having come from engineering, en route to the bridge. As the TL hums, he spots a stain on the wall and immediately begins cleaning it; remembering a promise he made to someone.::
(21:26:33) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: SEC: Indeed. Much has changed.
(21:27:01) CO_Capt_Harper: :: nods as she takes her seat, looking at a PADD full of reports ::
(21:28:31) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: fights the urge to rub her eyes as she turns back to her console, not wanting to disturb the carefully-applied coverup ::
(21:29:17) SEC_Lt_Kuari: SEC: I read his file. He wouldn't be coming here if he wasn't good at what he does. I just hope he's friendly.
(21:29:29) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The Akira-class USS Osprey emerges from warp and approaches, sending the standard handshake.
(21:30:59) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: SEC: His friendliness, or lack thereof, is of little relevance.
(21:31:48) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Spends a few seconds after the doors open, making certain the stain - of what he surmised as Raktajino - was gone. With a sigh, he exits the TL and finds the ENG console.::
(21:32:27) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: frowns ::
(21:32:28) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Akira approaching, Captain. They are hailing. :: moves to open communications at Harper's command. ::
(21:33:16) CO_Capt_Harper: :: nods :: On screen, Major.
(21:33:19) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: activates the viewscreen ::
(21:33:59) CO_Capt_Harper: CaptFinch> Captain Harper, Finch here of the Osprey. You're taking a good man from me today. :: smiles half-heartedly ::
(21:34:56) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::hums to himself as he picks up the PADD from one of his sleeping patients' biobeds, going over the last twenty-four hours of scan results:: Self: Hmmm...
(21:35:19) CO_Capt_Harper: *Finch* Thank you, Captain. We are prepared to receive your transport.
(21:35:53) CO_Capt_Harper: Finch> :: nods offscreen ::
(21:36:20) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> A shimmer appears in the TR, revealing Commander Vallero as it fades.
(21:37:06) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: XO: Commander, I am LT Syvek and this is LT Kuari. Welcome aboard the Atlantis.
(21:37:17) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: confirms :: CO: The Commander is aboard, Captain.
(21:37:17) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::looks around for Tyler and finds nothing, muttering quietly before calling over one of the nurses:: Nurse_Wotesh: I don't like the Lieutenant's Isoboramine levels, Shally. When did they start dropping?
(21:37:47) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: appears, blonde and blue-eyed smiling at those there to greet him ::
(21:37:50) CO_Capt_Harper: Finch: The Commander is aboard. Atlantis thanks you, and safe travels.
(21:38:49) CO_Capt_Harper: Finch> And to you, Atlantis. :: cuts the comm ::
(21:39:13) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Osprey has closed the channel.
(21:39:51) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: <Wotesh> ::takes the PADD for a frown, flicking through it then glancing at their patient on the biobed:: CMO: Only within the last hour or so. We think it's just a dip due to the change in anaesthetic, we're monitoring.
(21:40:02) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: nods to them both, and Syvek detects a bit of bravado, possibly hiding his nervousness :: SEC: Ah, hello. Thank you. :: he adjusts the duffel bag over his shoulder :: Will you show me to my quarters?
(21:40:40) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Walks around the corner in sickbay finishing his inventory of the surgical bay:: CMO: Is everything alright Commander
(21:40:42) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: XO: Of course, sir. Right this way. :: gestures out the door ::
(21:40:55) CO_Capt_Harper: :: nods to Wright, then stands and addresses the bridge :: Look sharp for our new XO.
(21:41:30) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: strides for the door purposefully ::
(21:42:45) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: follows suit, standing and smoothing a few uncharacteristic flyaway hairs ::
(21:42:49) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::nods to Shally and lets her continue before glancing over at Tyler:: MED: I'm worried about the Liret symbiote, Lieutenant Rickens' isoboramine levels are dropping.
(21:43:42) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: :: leads the Commander to a standard senior officer's quarters that are clearly not the XO's quarters, but are at least the ones on the end ::
(21:43:55) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Smiles. Is the king of sharp, or atleast thats how he feels when he dresses up for that 1950s detective holoprogram he so enjoys.:: CO: Aye, Captain.
(21:44:29) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The Osprey warps away, presumably to go pick up their new XO.
(21:44:36) AUX_Jorvan_Tav: :: is alone with his thoughts, when he has an idea and gets up.
(21:45:17) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: drops his bag inside the room and glances around, a little confused, but doesn't complain and turns to Syvek :: SEC: Right, time for the Bridge?
(21:45:50) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: XO: Yes, sir. I am certain the Captain is anticipating meeting you. :: leads him to the TL ::
(21:45:52) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: has followed Syvek with Vallero, watching him with curiosity ::
(21:46:25) MED_Ens_DrSlade: CMO: Two times that levels drop are when the symbiotes levels drop are when they are 1 rejecting the host or when they are nearing their time to reproduce. in my experience sir.
(21:46:37) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: Although, I have misplaced my spats... ::Smiles again.::
(21:46:52) CO_Capt_Harper: ENG: Your what, Lieutenant?
(21:47:04) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: can't help but notice the dragon as they TL :: SEC: So...you're the Rucara everyone talks about.
(21:47:14) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: :: directs the TL to the bridge ::
(21:47:44) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: The best way I could describe them, is strange shoe ornaments humans used to wear for formal engagements.
(21:47:50) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::moves up to the biobed controls and activates the sensor arch across the Lieutenant's torso:: MED: Good to see the reading is helping with your recall. However, neither of those things are happening - at least, I hope it's not the former. ::taps out a few commands and brings up the symbiote's lifesigns alongside Rickens'::
(21:48:41) SEC_Lt_Kuari: XO: :: goes for funny :: Don't worry, I don't bite. :: smiles ::
(21:48:44) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: MED: I don't want to wake him up for at least another 24 hours, that was a hell of a head wound. But I don't think Liret is really appreciating the environment we've put it into.
(21:48:58) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: her mind begins to listlessly wander as they wait ::
(21:49:03) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: :: Vulcabrows ::
(21:49:13) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: They served no real purpose that I can think, but were considered fashionable once.
(21:49:44) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: furrows his :: SEC: I would hope not.
(21:49:45) CO_Capt_Harper: ENG: As you say. :: smirks ::
(21:49:52) MED_Ens_DrSlade: CMO: Understood Comander we can keep it sedated. Any other orders?
(21:49:56) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: :: the door opens and he waits for the XO to leave first ::
(21:50:33) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: exits the TL, looking around ::
(21:50:34) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: snaps back to the present when the TL door opens and does her best to look sharp ::
(21:50:41) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::taps the PADD against his arm as he watches the readouts, deep in thought:: MED: No, no, you've got patients to see to.
(21:51:07) CO_Capt_Harper: :: turns as the XO enters ::
(21:51:08) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: follows after, unsure if Vallero was being funny or serious ::
(21:52:14) MED_Ens_DrSlade: CMO: Aye sir, then I will continue to triage if there is nothing else
(21:52:47) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: tries not to be obvious in her visual appraisal of the man ::
(21:53:16) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: looks over Wright and Wolfe, but his attention focuses on Harper and he walks towards her :: CO: Captain Harper, I presume?
(21:53:43) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Yes. Welcome aboard, Commander.
(21:54:58) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::lost in thought, he checks on Rickens' intravenous feed, adjusting the dosage just slightly while he runs through the problem::
(21:55:44) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: :: nods curtly, his hands clasped neatly behind his back :: Commander Daniel Vallero, reporting for duty. I look forward to serving as your first officer. And...I'm sorry for your loss.
(21:56:07) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: mentally awards him points for that last part ::
(21:56:33) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Thank you, Commander. That is greatly appreciated as we try to move on from the tragedy.
(21:57:30) AUX_Jorvan_Tav: :: walks down the corridor on Deck 15 and enters the large doors of Sickbay, looking around, spotting - is it Doctor Kaiman? Crap, he can't remember - several patients, and Doctor Slade ::
(21:58:31) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Shocked at the man that passes into sick bay:: AUX: Dr. Tav??? What a surprise sir.... What are you doing on Atlantis?
(21:58:35) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: :: nods along :: I must admit, I was put off guard to receive transfer orders on such short notice. My last posting...will be missed. But... :: glances around at the Bridge :: A sovereign should be quite the experience to look forward to.
(21:59:21) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: sits near the back of the Bridge near the TL, having completed her escort duty, but sticks around to watch the new guy ::
(22:00:09) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: mentally docks a couple of those points for that lackluster interest in the crew ::
(22:00:10) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::looks up at whoever is shouting in Sickbay, ready to roast alive whichever imbecile disturbed his train of thought, then spots Jorvan Tav:: Self: Hmm.
(22:00:10) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: I imagine it will be quite the transition. Are you familiar with the Quantum Slipstream flight procedure yet?
(22:01:29) AUX_Jorvan_Tav: :: smiles, somewhat weakly at Slade, looks around and then back to eye to eye with Slade :: MED: I came out here aboard Discovery for the funeral and wake, and then asked to stay aboard for a bit to grieve with the rest of you... since the loss is all of ours. :: looks over to where Kymar has noticed his entrance ::
(22:02:19) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: standing smartly at attention at the helm, ready to give a demonstration upon request ::
(22:02:32) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::double checks Rickens' scans before heading over to greet the old Chief Physician:: Tav: Mister Tav, I don't think we had the pleasure ::he swaps the PADD from one hand to the other, then offers it to the man::
(22:03:00) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Gets slightly choked up by his explanation:: AUX: Well im glad youre here and youre right its all of ours. I was on duty so i missed the service unfortunately.
(22:03:25) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: :: drops his hands in favor of wringing them :: I...can't say that I am, not really. I had very little time to go over the systems as a whole. It is my intention to qualify as quickly as possible, however.
(22:03:38) CO_Capt_Harper: :: glances down at her PADD for a moment and sends a set of coordinates to the helm, in open space out past Gencodia, somewhat near the Hinterlands, but not in any star system ::
(22:04:04) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Understood. I anticipate that you will have plenty of time to learn.
(22:04:20) CO_Capt_Harper: CTO: Yellow alert, shields up and configure geometry for slipstream flight.
(22:04:24) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ::Sees the CMO coming and decides to introduce:: AUX/CMO: Commander Kymar Dremel, Dr. Jorvan Tav.
(22:04:47) AUX_Jorvan_Tav: :: raises his hand as he walks toward Kymar :: CMO: Doctor. I don't believe we've had a chance to be properly introduced. I see you've taken good care of Sickbay since I've been gone :: looks around :: CMO: I like the improvements. ::points to something in the distance :: CMO: Even some I tried for years to make happen.
(22:05:01) CO_Capt_Harper: NAV: Plot a slipstream solution to the coordinates I sent you. Warp one in the meantime.
(22:05:01) MED_Ens_DrSlade: AUX/CO: Ill leave you gentlemen if youll excuse me. Tav its good to see you even if it is under the circumstances.
(22:05:24) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: activates :: CO: Aye, Captain. Yellow alert.
(22:05:52) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: keeps working :: CO: We are ready for Slipstream Operation.
(22:06:16) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Aye, Captain. :: engages at warp one and plugs the coordinates into the computer to plot a solution ::
(22:06:22) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::glances at Tyler for a moment before turning his attention back on Jorvan, shaking the man's hand firmly with a smile:: AUX: It helped that most of it got ripped out during the overhaul, I think. I could give you a tour of the surgical suite, if you like? Not even Starfleet Medical HQ have a better equipped OR.
(22:06:44) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: in Science Lab One, working on a project, and looks up at the Yellow Alert. Looks like it's time to see what's going on. So, she heads out to the TL and directs it to the bridge. Might as well finish up the report on this experiment while knowing what all is happening ::
(22:07:04) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: watches the Bridge Officers communicating, paying attention ::
(22:07:14) CO_Capt_Harper: :: takes her seat :: CTO: Understood, stand by.
(22:07:16) AUX_Jorvan_Tav: :: looks around again and smiles broadly for what may be the first time in months, his face seeming to lose some of the ten years of aging since he served here :: CMO: I would love that.
(22:08:00) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: spots the chair next to Harper, presumes and sits ::
(22:08:24) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Solution plotted and ready, Captain.
(22:08:25) CO_Capt_Harper: :: nods to the XO ::
(22:08:37) CO_Capt_Harper: NAV: Engage slipstream flight.
(22:08:45) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: the TL deposits her on the bridge and she heads for the auxiliary science console, realizing that they're likely about to use the QSD, judging from Harper's words ::
(22:08:56) CO_Capt_Harper: :: itches to be at the helm for this ::
(22:09:07) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: smiles politely back and watches for the slipstream ::
(22:09:21) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: begins spinning up the slipstream drive as they continue at warp one :: CO: Slipstream in one minute.
(22:09:42) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::smiles happily and leads the man slowly towards the doors further inside, the panel outside stating 'Operating Room 1' along with a vacant symbol:: AUX: I made sure that we included the best xenobiology libraries in the replication database before setting out, along with a full genetic analysis suite up one deck with the Science labs - I may have pulled a few strings with the Andorian
(22:09:42) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: Genetics council.
(22:10:21) CO_Capt_Harper: :: watches the main viewer in anticipation ::
(22:10:22) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: confirms that the Slipstream warnings are activated throughout the ship ::
(22:12:12) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: works on this project as she observes, curious as to their destination ::
(22:12:27) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The slipstream forms and smoothly pulls Atlantis in.
(22:13:41) AUX_Jorvan_Tav: :: follows, looking around and noting the fine detail of technologies he hasn't seen since studying at Starfleet Medical, regarding technologies he would see someday :: CMO: I am impressed, Doctor.
(22:13:46) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Slipstream flight stable. Arrival in 62 minutes.
(22:13:49) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ::Continues seeing the patients in main sickbay and the few physical appointments that he had left::
(22:13:59) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Monitors the EPS manifolds, the flow capacitors, and just the power systems in general. Even though Atlantis has become proficient in use of the QSD, he's still curious to see the long-term effects of the device's use.::
(22:14:06) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: AUX: I
(22:15:56) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::runs his fingers over a few of the barely used consoles:: AUX: I've always believed in a well equipped and well-stocked Sickbay. I spent three years on an exchange program with the KDF, it's ludicrous how they're expected to keep their warriors alive with what little their doctors have - so I make sure that the crew has everything they might need when exploring the frontier.
(22:17:28) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> An hour later, we approach the slipstream target.
(22:18:39) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: has presumably spoken with Harper about ship systems and boring personnel procedures along the way ::
(22:18:39) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: has retaken her seat, slightly miffed that the new XO showed no interest in being introduced ::
(22:18:47) AUX_Jorvan_Tav: :: follows with his own finger absently running across the heretofore untouched-by-him console :: CMO: Working with a Klingon medical department. That had to be interesting.
(22:19:30) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Exiting slipstream in one minute.
(22:19:59) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: has since finished the conclusion of her experiment and is now taking the time to add several notes to a lengthy list of similar notes ::
(22:20:01) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::nods, tapping the PADD lightly with his figers:: AUX: Interesting is one way to put it. The IKS QIb, I served with a few other Starfleet personnel onboard back when the Klingons and Starfleet were cooperating a lot more. It taught me a lot...
(22:21:38) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The slipstream ends and dumps Atlantis into normal space.
(22:22:21) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: watches the stillness displayed on the main viewer :: CO: And...we've traveled how far?
(22:22:45) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Normal space achieved. Drift approximately 4AU.
(22:23:18) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Three hundred light years.
(22:23:26) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: runs scans with the tactical sensors as he always does exiting Slipstream flight ::
(22:23:52) CO_Capt_Harper: NAV: Well-done, Lieutenant.
(22:24:00) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: runs scans with the non-tactical sensors as she always does exiting Slipstream flight ::
(22:24:31) AUX_Jorvan_Tav: CMO: I would love to hear about that. Perhaps over drinks in Ten Forward sometime. :: disconnects with his eyes as he remembers he's not part of the crew ::
(22:24:33) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: <Yeoman_Trish> ::prepares coffee with the non-sensoring replicator as she always does exiting Slipstream flight::
(22:24:38) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Thank you, Captain. Heading?
(22:24:38) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: :: shakes his head, surprise clear on his face :: What the Osprey could do with a system like this. Oh but it won't be due for it until...what, twenty-five hundred? :: chuckles ::
(22:24:42) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Atlantis is in interstellar space, with nothing seemingly around.
(22:25:19) CO_Capt_Harper: NAV: Stand by on that. We have to find our destination, first.
(22:25:33) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Aye, Sir, standing by.
(22:25:43) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO/CTO: Begin scanning for a rogue planet.
(22:26:08) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::nods, smiling slightly as he concludes the tour of Atlantis' facilities:: AUX: Of course, I'd like that. A round will buy you a story, I think that's the usual barter exchange in the mess.
(22:26:16) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: found nothing like that in her initial scan, so increases the radius and scans again ::
(22:26:44) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: begins base scans in all directions ::
(22:26:56) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: watches and listens, then quietly :: CO: We on mission?
(22:28:08) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Yes, a rogue planet was found on preliminary scans in this area. We are to evaluate its available resources, assuming its lifeless.
(22:28:46) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::offers his hand out once more:: AUX: It was good to meet you, Mister Tav; I promise that the Atlantis crew is in good hands. If you'll excuse me, there's a patient that I really need to check on.
(22:29:16) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: takes the drift into account and expands the radius significantly, initiating another scan ::
(22:30:42) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: adds the notes that she needed to and then works on a few scans of her own, mostly of the surrounding space, not looking for anything in particular, just looking over the region ::
(22:31:12) AUX_Jorvan_Tav: CMO: Of course. Thank you, Doctor. :: steps back to simply watch the activity from a distance for a few moments ::
(22:33:39) CO_Capt_Harper: :: waits, wondering if the scans were accurate ::
(22:33:45) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: the immediate surroundings are spectacularly lifeless and rather boring. Going a thousand meters at a time, she expands the scan, looking at the spatial contents for anything remotely interesting, such as a comet or trace of radiation ::
(22:34:04) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: I've located what appears to be a rogue planet, Captain. Sending coordinates to the helm and TAC.
(22:34:30) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Distance?
(22:35:00) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Roughly 40 AU.
(22:35:07) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: receives the coordinates ::
(22:35:31) CO_Capt_Harper: NAV: Take us there at warp speed. CTO: Is anyone already there?
(22:36:48) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Nothing on sensors, Comm- Captain., But we would need to get closer to know for sure.
(22:37:07) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: also receives the coordinates :: CO: Heading 151 mark 5. What warp factor, Sir? :: not familiar with her new Captain's habits yet ::
(22:37:31) CO_Capt_Harper: NAV: Warp four should be ideal.
(22:37:43) CO_Capt_Harper: CTO: Keep checking as we approach.
(22:37:54) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Aye, warp 4. Engaging.
(22:38:08) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Aye, Captain. Continuous scans.
(22:38:59) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Atlantis closes that distance in a few minutes and approaches the dark planet.
(22:39:12) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: the surrounding space for about thirty thousand meters is fantastically dull and boring, perhaps this rogue planet might be interesting ::
(22:39:27) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: initiates close-range scans as soon as we enter proximity ::
(22:40:36) CO_Capt_Harper: NAV: Insert us into a polar orbit, lieutenant.
(22:41:15) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Tactical scans complete. There's nothing alive or weaponized on this planet.
(22:41:35) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Aye, Sir. :: coaxes the Atlantis into a low polar orbit ::
(22:41:41) CO_Capt_Harper: CTO: Great.
(22:41:55) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Put the planet on screen.
(22:42:11) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: wordlessly complies ::
(22:42:38) CO_Capt_Harper: :: since there's no sunlight, a completely dark planetary surface appears on the screen, which isn't very useful :: CSO: Infrared view.
(22:43:13) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: watches the screen with interest ::
(22:43:16) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: switches to infrared view, mentally chiding herself for not doing that in the first place... so tired ::
(22:43:52) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The planet lights up in IR, its limb filling half the screen in a serene light green glow.
(22:45:13) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: A stellar exile or a cosmic wanderer? ::Goes all poetic.::
(22:45:22) CO_Capt_Harper: :: smiles at the screen :: Look at that, out here in the middle of nothing.
(22:46:14) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Walks by and sees Tav still looking around:: AUX: Tav, im off shift at 1800 would you want to go to Ten Forward for dinner. I think there may be a thing or two I need to fill you in on. :: Smiles shyly::
(22:46:57) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Approximate geologic age is 3 billion years. Self: Interesting.
(22:47:00) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: the planet is about as interesting as the space around it, save for the simple fact it exists ::
