(21:22:44) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Runs around his quarters like a headless chicken, digging through all of his boxes for his 'safari' equipment.::
(21:22:53) CO_Capt_Harper: :: walks out on the bridge, having finished the last of her paperwork before leave ::
(21:23:34) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::sits on the bridge at one of the mission stations, going through his scans of the planet and it's indigenous life, flora and fauna::
(21:23:36) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: returns to the bridge after storing her initial sample collection in the lab for future study ::
(21:25:35) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: finishes up at his station on the Bridge, noting Harper's entrance from the ready room, not willing to leave until the Captian does ::
(21:26:08) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: I had expected you to be down there by now, Commander.
(21:26:47) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: on the bridge, using the planetary scans to find a good place to potentially stay for a few days. There is a small cove of trees that looks rather pleasing ::
(21:26:54) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: sees Vallero talking to Kate and lingers, vaguely attempting to look like she was here on actual business ::
(21:27:28) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: :: straightens and stretches :: I needed to make sure the captain got her leave, too.
(21:27:32) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: checks the sensors where he transported his yurt. Wonderful! There's no one there, but a stream nearby for some fishing. Or, whatever you call the freshwater aquatic life that might make for good eating. No doubt about it, Wolfe's going to rough it. He sinches his backpack up and looks at himself in his safari-type getup including pith helmet, checks his phaser and walks out of his quarters into the corridor toward TR1. :
(21:28:42) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: happily discards her armor in her locker and jaunts back to the TL ::
(21:29:03) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Do not worry, I will. :: smirks and turns to Lexy :: CSO: And about that....
(21:29:10) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::finishes the final analysis, then turns in his seat, looking out for Harper:: CO: Captain, a moment if you have it?
(21:29:19) CO_Capt_Harper: CMO: Yes, doctor?
(21:29:56) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Throws on a tan exploration outfit on, making him look like something out of a history book.::
(21:30:01) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: almost answers Kate until Kymar interrupts, tries to look nonchalant ::
(21:30:36) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: CO: I've finished my analysis of the indigenous flora and fauna. Most of it should be fairly harmless, although there's high levels of certain toxins in a lot of the plants - i'd recommend issuing an alert not to eat things if anyone can help it. Also to keep a phaser on hand, the mammals can get quite large and are pretty populous in the heavily forested areas.
(21:30:52) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: makes an annoyed face, wondering if Kymar's call will derail Harper's efforts to take leave ::
(21:31:37) CO_Capt_Harper: CMO: That would seem prudent. XO: Make that known to all going down.
(21:31:57) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: pulls out her PADD and tries to look busy, being the Captain's girlfriend is hard ::
(21:32:21) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Fills his fitted rucksack with a few necessary survival pieces, including; a first aid kit, a sleeping bag, a compass, some rations and a fair bit of water. He also packs a tricorder, some sample collectors, and a number of small notebooks with a writing implement.:: Self: What else do I need...?
(21:32:47) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: :: nods and hurriedly moves to access the comm :: Don't you worry, you get along and I'll take care of it.
(21:32:59) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::nods, turning back to his console and making the findings public for the crew on shore leave:: CO/XO: Everyone should be up to the date on shots, we've nothing to worry about in that regard. I'll have quarantine teams on standby just in case, and we'll run the standard biological filters on transports up. Otherwise, this shore leave gets Medical's stamp of approval.
(21:34:06) CO_Capt_Harper: CMO: Thank you doctor! Be sure to get some leave yourself.
(21:34:34) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::grins slightly:: CO: I'll see what I can do, but no promises.
(21:34:58) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: waits her turn with a group heading to the main beam down site and gets onto the transporter pad, sans uniform ::
(21:35:22) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Goes to the replicator, and has it create him a staff; something longer than his cane, with more leverage for the long walk he had thought of.::
(21:35:27) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: :: standing impassively near the tactical station, regarding the conversation with interest ::
(21:35:56) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Thank you Commander. :: turns back to Lexy with a hopeful look that maybe they can get going ::
(21:36:01) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: turns the corner into TR1, gets in line and waits his turn. When he reaches the front, he gives the coordinates to the technician and steps onto the pad. :: TECH: Energize. :: 6.2 seconds later, Wolfe materializes next to his yurt. He looks around to make sure there's nothing charging him, then steps to the yurt to inspect it before stepping inside. :: Self: Not bad. Not bad, at all.
(21:36:18) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::turns around slightly, glancing over to the Science area:: SCI: Lieutenant T'Lira, are you busy?
(21:36:43) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks up from her PADD :: CO: Are you planning to take shore leave, Captain?
(21:37:04) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: I think the Commander insists on it.
(21:37:07) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: looks up :: CMO: At the moment, no. Is there something you need? :: is still trying to find a decent spot, and then remember the part about medical clearance. That makes a bit mroe sense now ::
(21:37:31) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Grabs a suitable piece of headgear, slings his sack on, and leans on his new staff; sighing with anticipation. He strides out of his quarters and down the hall.::
(21:37:39) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::shrugs, smiling slightly:: SCI: Well, if you're too busy for shore leave, I won't bother you. ::turns back to his station::
(21:38:10) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Did you have anything in mind? :: heads for the TL, slowly until Kate joins her ::
(21:38:58) CO_Capt_Harper: :: gets the hint and enters the TL with Lexy :: CSO: I saw a few places that seemed lovely. How about you?
(21:38:59) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *Shipwide* Attention all shore leave participants. Due to the toxic nature of some plants, please refrain from eating anything from the planet. It's recommended you take a phaser with you, as there are some large mammals, especially in the forests. Stay safe and have fun. Vallero out.
(21:39:18) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Returns only moments later, grabbing his smoking pipe and tobacco.:: Self: Onward!!! ::Continues back out to the TR.::
(21:39:54) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: lifts an eyebrow :: CMO: Certainly not. I was merely stating that I was not busy at the moment, but that could likely change if you needed something.
(21:40:43) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Gets that youthful buzz he remembers, upon jumping into a TL.::
(21:41:12) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks a bit evasive/hopeful :: CO: Welllll, if I were being totally selfish, I'd love to requisition a shuttle and my own personal pilot/scientist, a picnic basket, and a few cases of sample containers and check out more of the planet's biomes, buuut I understand if you'd rather do something more relaxing.
(21:41:25) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::taps out a few commands on his console, sending some data over to T'Lira:: SCI: I've highlighted a few areas that I've scanned thoroughly, away from major populations of mammals, likely hunting or feeding grounds, and seems fairly devoid of any natural dangers. Those are your approved shore leave destinations. ::spins his chair back::
(21:42:24) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: is beamed down to the planet, into the sunlight and a myriad of smells and chattering crewmen busy rushing off in their own directions ::
(21:42:39) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: the eyebrow remains lifted as she looks over the highlighted areas :: CMO: Thank you, doctor.
(21:43:31) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Almost has a skip in his step as a leaves the TL and goes down the corridor to the TR.::
(21:43:37) CO_Capt_Harper: :: once the door closes, she turns and smiles :: That sounds delightful! And I remember once in Lost Harbor promising to go afield with you.
(21:43:41) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::smiles a little wider:: SCI: Don't worry, you have a nice selection of different locales. Just...try not to eat or drink anything that isn't Federation-standard, okay? Otherwise go and relax.
(21:44:15) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: SCI: Except...::turns slightly, glancing at Tactical:: SEC: Syvek, are *you* busy?
(21:44:51) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: :: turns :: CMO: I am not, doctor.
(21:46:27) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Really? Yay! :: claps her hands excitedly :: We can replicate the field gear and picnic basket on the shuttle. Shall I reroute to the shuttle bay? :: already doing that ::
(21:46:39) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: SEC: Good. It just so happens that your shore leave begins about now and your only approved area is the one that Lieutenant T'Lira picks. I'm sure you'll both have fun, as well as stay hydrated and ensure that you take your supplements on time, correct?
(21:46:41) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Strides into the TR and crosses to get a phaser.:: TRC: Since we have been told to take a phaser, I suppose I should acquiesce! ::Smiles, as he slips the phaser into a holster.::
(21:47:14) CO_Capt_Harper: :: laughs :: CSO: Well, I had meant to pack a few things, but there would be nothing I cannot replicate, given a shuttle.
(21:47:29) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: deadpan :: CMO: I see my intention of inventing a new recipe are no longer a viable option. A pity. The local fauna may have made an excellent soup, with enough work. :: resists the urge to lift her other eyebrow to replace the first at hearing about her company and remains silent on that point ::
(21:47:40) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: :: raises an eyebrow :: CMO: I had not intended to take shore leave, doctor.
(21:47:51) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: having finished his business at the comm and some follow up checks to scans of the planet, makes his decision, signs off, and listens to the conversation on the Bridge ::
(21:48:05) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: TRC: Hopefully, I shant be shooting too many animals. ::Steps onto the pad. And awaits the chief to beam him down.::
(21:48:19) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::flashes a wide grin:: SEC: Call it a transfer to medical, if you prefer. Maybe you can help T'Lira with her sarcasm, it needs some work. ::throws a humoured glance at way::
(21:48:57) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: has a vast selection of sarcastic retorts she could use, but won't. ::
(21:49:12) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: blushes at having gotten ahead of herself, but still grinning :: CO: I'm very much looking forward to this. Oh, and I pre-programmed the basket already, so just let me know whenever you're ready to eat! :: steps into the shuttle bay after the TL doors open ::
(21:49:52) CO_Capt_Harper: :: opens her mouth into a grin, quite impressed at how much planning Lexy had already put into this ::
(21:50:08) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: CMO: Very well, provided that the Lieutenant does not object.
(21:50:25) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Gets beamed down to the planet, without so much as a chuckle. Possibly impatience for his own shore leave.::
(21:50:47) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: SEC: She does not. ::claps his hands, nodding to himself:: SCI/SEC: That's settled, then. Enjoy yourselves, get in touch if you need me.
(21:51:40) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Leans on his staff, as he takes a deep breath of the fresh and untainted air of wilderness.::
(21:51:59) CO_Capt_Harper: :: follows along to the shuttle that was apparently already reserved ::
(21:52:09) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Do you have a shuttle preference? I hate to rush, but the sooner we get you off this ship, the easier it will be to get people to leave you alone. :: winks conspiratorially at Kate ::
(21:52:13) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: seeing that Kymar clearly has the matter in hand, calls over some unlucky ensign to man the Bridge ::
(21:53:21) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Looks around to see if anyone he knows is about, and to decide which direction to go.::
(21:53:32) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: takes in a deep breath of fresh air, taking the time a short ways away to just sniff the air and watch crewmen beam down and be on their separate ways ::
(21:54:11) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: has reviewed the acceptable list and found a spot that was close to the cove of tree she'd been looking at. That would be acceptable. Now, to create a brief mental checklist of required supplies ::
(21:54:48) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Well, none of them are a Mustang, so it does not matter much.
(21:54:53) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::nods with it all sorted and turns back to his console to continue on with his research, analysis and cataloguing the scans from the planet::
(21:55:19) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: stops in front of one :: CO: I figured that might be the case. I already reserved this one, actually, if it'll do. :: pats the hull ::
(21:55:33) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: after inspecting the interior and setting a few necessities inside, Wolfe steps outside and and drops into a chair made from deconstructed wine casks that waits just outside the door. From under his arm he pulls a very old copy of Prelude to Foundation and opens it to page one. ::
(21:55:45) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Spots the unmistakable silhouette of a dragon. Smiles, and plods toward Kuari.::
(21:55:48) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: SCI: Have you chosen a location, Lieutenant?
(21:56:27) SCI_Lt_TLira: SEC: Affirmative. :: gestures to the location on the map on her console display ::
(21:57:14) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SEC: Hello, my dear! ::Seems very excitable.::
(21:58:06) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: The Salacia. She will do fine. :: steps aboard ::
(21:58:25) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: SCI: Shall I meet you in the transporter room, then?
(21:58:46) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: marches towards the TL, passing by Kymar :: CMO: Ensign Nobody has the Bridge, that way you can do what you need to do. I hope you get some leave time.
(21:59:00) SCI_Lt_TLira: SEC: Agreed. :: heads for the turbolift, still unhappy with this entire thing, but is willing to put up with it ::
(21:59:27) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: smiles to herself, then steps aboard and settles in the second seat to obtain departure clearances while Kate does her pre-flight ::
(21:59:38) CO_Capt_Harper: :: does all the checks and powers up the shuttle ::
(21:59:38) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: spots Ilaihr as he approaches and greets her from afar :: ENG: Hi! Isn't this wonderful?
(21:59:41) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::glances up at Vallero and smiles, nodding:: XO: With luck. I've only got a small crew in the Sickbays, and I know we're going to get injuries, but I'll try and grab a few hours. Have fun, Commander.
(22:00:15) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: We're all clear!
(22:00:31) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: :: briefly wonders what the doctor has gotten him into as he heads to his quarters to pack a small bag ::
(22:00:34) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CMO: :: nods sharply, takes one last glance at T'Lira and Syvek, then heads for the TL :: Will do.
(22:00:49) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: orders the turbolift to its destination and completes the mental checklist as it deposits her at the given deck. Now, just to get that short list together ::
(22:00:49) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SEC: It is, isn't it. I would wager, you will take the chance to stretch your wings?
(22:01:18) CO_Capt_Harper: :: lifts the Salacia off the deck and out the bay doors :: CSO: Where to, el Capitan?
(22:01:43) SEC_Lt_Kuari: ENG: Oh, yes. I'm just getting my bearings first. As much as I want to fly now, I have to familiarize myself with this place, or I might not find my way back.
(22:03:13) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SEC: That is understandable. I intend to get ever so slightly lost, see what I can find. ::Grins gleefully.::
(22:04:19) SEC_Lt_Kuari: ENG: Sounds fun! Which way do you think you'll go? I would walk with you, but I've got to fly! Maybe I can find you later.
(22:04:46) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: takes the TL to the TR and joins the queue ::
(22:04:58) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: uploads a series of coordinates to the visual map - further inspection shows locations in alpine, tundra, tropical, forest, plain, dry dry desert, and other zones :: CO: Here's what I've already chosen, take your pick!
(22:05:30) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: has most of the list together, just needs to decide which books to take... it seems to be a choice between continuing Surak's Analects or perhaps... Macbeth seems like the better option, given that she has yet to read it. Setting that in the bag, she quickly thinks of anything else she might need and can't come up with anything, so perhaps changing out of
(22:05:31) SCI_Lt_TLira: this uniform would be a good next move ::
(22:06:35) CO_Capt_Harper: :: looks over the map and remembers liking what she saw in the alpine area, targets that as they approach entry interface ::
(22:06:49) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: I love that you have this all planned out.
(22:07:27) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: :: is a Marine, and assembles a rucksack of survival gear and assorted weaponry, heads to the TL ::
(22:07:43) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: I was willing to do whatever you wanted to do, but I figured I'd better be ready in case you agreed.
(22:08:00) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: grabs her commbadge and puts her phaser in her bag before leaving, heading for the TR ::
(22:08:26) CO_Capt_Harper: :: as the shuttle hits atmo :: CSO: I have to make so many decisions now that it is nice not to have to sometimes.
(22:08:26) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SEC: I was just deciding that, at this moment. I'm thinking of walking to the ocean, possibly find a stream somewhere to follow into the forest.
(22:08:37) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: :: arrives in the TR and waits ::
(22:09:08) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: walks into the TR and sees that Syvek is already waiting :: SEC: Lieutenant.
(22:09:18) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: SCI: Lieutenant. :: steps up on the pad ::
(22:09:29) SEC_Lt_Kuari: ENG: :: nods to herself, a little bouncy :: I'll keep that in mind. Be safe, Illaihr. We'll swap adventure stories later!
(22:09:49) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: follows and nods to the TR operator ::
(22:10:15) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: True, but I wasn't sure if you'd want to do work on your vacation! And, er, I already replicated our field gear. It's in that storage cabinet. :: points :: so we'll be ready upon landing!
(22:10:19) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Smiles:: SEC: Safe flying my dear. ::Points himself in the direction of adventure.::
(22:10:56) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::hums to himself quietly, wondering just how much trouble the various shore leavers are going to get into...then puts an extra duty shift on over the next 6 hours::

(22:11:05) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Packs lightly a dufflebag and brings a tent to camp in. He had found a quite lake to transport to with a nice warm climate. He headed to the nearest TL to the TR. He used a PADD to transfer his selected cooridnance to the operator as he stepped onto the pad.:: Energize. :: After a shimmer of light he stood in a wooded area, in a clearing by the lake. He activated his tent which was self erecting. ::
(22:11:07) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: of course stopped by his quarters before arriving at the TR with a backpack and transporting down to the main beam down site ::
(22:11:56) SCI_Lt_TLira: TR_Operator: Energize.
(22:12:04) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: watches Ilaihr go for a few moments before springing upwards and launching into the sky with a powerful downward flap of her wings ::
(22:12:06) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: :: beams into the approved location with T'Lira and looks around, scanning for any threats ::
(22:13:34) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: looks around and finds that she chose well. This area is indeed quite appealing, and it's relatively open ::
(22:14:13) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Begins singing, quite loudly, unrestrained by caring about who can hear him. Wonders what wildlife and plants he can discover.::
(22:14:54) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: :: seeing nothing with his eyes, he double checks with a tricorder, missing the HUD his helmet usually provides ::
(22:15:14) CO_Capt_Harper: :: sees a little bit of a flat spot ahead and targets it for landing ::
(22:17:25) CO_Capt_Harper: :: guides the shuttle to a gentle landing ::
(22:18:05) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: purposely not looking at the external view until they get outside, tosses Kate's field gear to her before quickly changing into her own, stuffing her pockets with sample containers ::
(22:18:21) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: SCI: The area is clear of anything dangerous. Since it is obvious that is why the doctor sent me along, I will endeavor not to be too obtrusive.
(22:18:41) CO_Capt_Harper: :: powers down the shuttle and finds her gear already tossed her way ::
(22:19:09) CO_Capt_Harper: :: doffs her uniform and changes into the gear ::
(22:19:19) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: opens the hatch and looks out on the stark, breathtaking beauty of a high desert at sundown, sparse hardy plants dotting the landscape and casting long shadows, dark columns of rock weathered by the millenia jutting up against a sky painted in vibrant sunset hues, the first stars only just becoming visible :: Self: Wooooow.
(22:19:40) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: takes in the horizon and, choosing some distant hills in the distance, begins marching that way ::
(22:19:55) SCI_Lt_TLira: SEC: My thanks. I would not wish to accidentally come across a dangerous creature. That may have... unpleasant results. :: looks around for a moment and pinpoints a flat patch two meters away, perfect for a tent. Fortunately, she does know how to pitch a tent, thanks to an ill-advised Academy endeavour ::
(22:20:01) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: without looking, pulls out her tricorder and starts scanning for hostile fauna before stepping down to the dusty ground and turning to look at Kate :: CO: This? is amazing.
(22:20:40) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Notices strange little vole like creatures scurry into a small burrow. Stops for a moment, taking a few scans and writing a few notes.::
(22:20:43) CO_Capt_Harper: :: emerges from the shuttle in time to catch the look, then takes in the view :: It is indeed!
(22:21:45) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks up to the sky as he turns the page, enjoying the warmth and quiet, before continuing his reading. ::
(22:22:26) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Continues on, hoping to spot more on his travels.::
(22:22:40) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: :: sets up his own tent ::
(22:22:51) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: cozies up to Kate and spends a few moments taking in the landscape with wonder :: CO: Nice choice. We'd better get to collecting samples while there's still light, yes?
(22:23:28) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Yes. There is science to do, so we should get to it.
(22:24:04) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: happily flies for a while, remembering her last time on Gencodia, and takes in the natural, unspoiled beauty from the air ::
(22:25:05) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: impulsively gives Kate a huge squeeze for loving science too, then hurries around collecting samples of the environs ::
(22:25:38) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: the tent is pitched and so is the small cot she remembered to grab, because even flat ground could be deceptively rocky. This may indeed be a refreshing shore leave, after all, despite her initial... misgivings ::
(22:25:52) CO_Capt_Harper: :: checks out her gear, remembering how to use it since you really don't forget that sort of thing ::
(22:27:12) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: calls over to Kate :: CO: I'm interested to see what kind of samples you collect! I have a feeling there are many nights in the lab in my future.
(22:27:14) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Puts his duffle bag inside his tent and climbs inside. He gets changed into his speedo. Then emerges from the tent, going into the lake to work on his swimming. Not that he needs to, his webbed hands allow him to swim faster than any human could. But he enjoyed it. ::
(22:28:03) CO_Capt_Harper: :: loosens and shakes her hair out of the Captainly updo and pulls it back into a ponytail, then kneels at an exposed rock surface displaying strata :: CSO: Well, I hope my technique is still up to date.
(22:28:17) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: once he is a ways from the hustle and bustle of the beam down site, begins to take in the lonely terrain, accompanied only by the rustling of his boots in the tall grass, telling himself that he is possibly going where no man has gone before, and who knows what he'll find?
(22:29:15) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: I have faith in you. Are you sure that this is how you want to spend shore leave, though?
(22:29:20) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: :: takes note of a few locations of interest around the area that T'Lira may want to visit and notes their tactical advantages/advantages ::
(22:29:24) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Closes his eyes, and focuses his mind as he plods along. Seeing what his mind can see.::
(22:30:00) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: It is time well-spent doing something I rarely get to do anymore, and in the best of company.
(22:30:39) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: realizes her wings are beginning to tire and she really does need to push herself more in holodeck flight simulations. Lowering her altitude, she begins to search for a place to land ::
(22:30:51) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Besides, how much leave time have we spent in my style of debauchery?
(22:31:31) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: smiles radiantly :: CO: Every day, you're even more amazing to me. And yes, we've done that, but that's also nice to do sometimes. I'm happy that we can agree on both.
(22:31:47) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: turns another page and looks up to take in the meadow between him and the river that flows by, and listens to the noise of the babbling water. ::
(22:32:59) CO_Capt_Harper: :: carefully documenting the strata before she disturbs it :: CSO: That is quite promising.
(22:34:06) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: That we can agree on both, I mean, not the strata. Well, the strata is also promising.
(22:34:12) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Can see an array of astounding colours, he can almost feel the life of the planet. Flashes of light in the distant sky, maybe Lady Kuari, maybe a bird of some kind. And pulses in the dirt beneath his feet, perhaps more of those voles.::
(22:34:28) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: is satisfied with the state of the tent, although it is ever so slightly disorganized, but that is merely natural. Now... to sit outside and read for a bit. Macbeth has always seemed like one of the more interesting Shakespeare plays, so she might as well start now ::
(22:34:34) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: fixates on what's clearly not a naturally occurring roof at the treeline below and at first is confused. Of course, it would have to be one of the crew, but what are the chances she found someone? Her first inclination was to leave them be, but she really was getting tired... ::
(22:35:21) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: laughs :: CO: The promising nature of both things is good! I think we have almost lost the light, though. But look at all of those stars! Standing on a strange world looking up at alien constellations and galaxies never gets old. :: pulls out an imager and adjusts the exposure ::
(22:36:03) CO_Capt_Harper: :: scrapes each layer of strata into a separate container and labels each in turn ::
(22:36:18) CO_Capt_Harper: :: seals her containers and stands :: CSO: No one has ever stood here before.
(22:37:13) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: collects images of the setting, of the sky, of Kate doing science :: CO: It almost breaks my brain to think that. :: makes the mind=blown gesture that has persisted for 400 years somehow ::
(22:37:50) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: fully intended to land gently, but is very tired and thumps down on the roof of Wolfe's yurt ::
(22:38:09) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: :: makes his way outside the tent and sits against a tree ::
(22:38:55) CO_Capt_Harper: :: carries her sample containers to the shuttle :: CSO: Get one of us.
(22:38:55) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: finds a spot just outside the "door" of her tent and sits to read for a short while ::
(22:39:19) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: eventually comes to an incline, the tall grass dwindling into small tufts here and there, and begins to scale the base of a rocky hill ::
(22:39:32) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: hears the commotion above and behind him, startles, turns and finds his phaser pointed at Kuari blurting out the following before he has even had a chance to think about anything :: SEC: What the hell?!?
(22:39:41) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Briefly senses a flash of something larger in the distance, before it fades away. It could be his first predator! He grinned with excitement momentarily, even though it was entirely likely to have been a crewman. Continues on toward the water.::
(22:39:59) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: And had we not arrived, or anyone else, no one would have set foot here for millions of years.
(22:40:04) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Swims directly across the lake from his camp. He dives and swims back towards his camp under water along the lake floor. ::
(22:40:11) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: checks the labels on the samples she's already collected, then does a few more before walking over to look at what Kate was doing :: CO: Mmm, that is promising strata. See, you still have it. Let's do one of us over here, what do you think? :: sets up imager ::
(22:41:23) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: lowers his phaser and brushes off his shirt as he realizes it's Kuari and not something attacking him, but still giving her the evil eye ::
(22:41:43) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: pants for breath, recognizing Wolfe immediately :: CTO: Sorry, sorry! I didn't mean to land so roughly. I'm just...really tired. I've been negligent in my flight training.
(22:42:03) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Planets of this class don't come along every day. I'm keeping an eye out for a place to build a cabin and retire in a few decades. :: grins and winks ::
(22:42:35) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: clutches the roof supports before flapping twice and landing on the ground ::
(22:43:18) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Thank you. :: was only an average scientist, but will take the compliment :: Now you are thinking! Perhaps a bit too rough yet for my tastes, but who knows by then, yes? Also that spot will make a beautiful picture.
(22:45:17) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: softens almost imperceptibly, stows his phaser and follows Kuari with his eyes, not saying anything, still slightly recovering from the startled state. After all, he had had his back to the yurt and could see all around in every direction. The one thing he didn't expect was exactly what had happened. He vamps another moment :: SEC: I see you found my homestead.
(22:45:25) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: slides her arm around Kate's waist and pulls her close, ignoring the fact that they are both probably slightly smudged with dirt ::
(22:45:51) CO_Capt_Harper: :: smiles brightly for the picture ::
(22:46:15) CO_Capt_Harper: :: putting her arm around Lexy as well ::
(22:46:55) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: lies down and draws her attention to the yurt :: CTO: Quite impressive. Expecting bad weather? How did you build this so quickly?
(22:47:11) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Spots that flash of life again in the distance of his minds eye. He raised his hand in the air, feeling the wind blowing in that direction. It could be a large animal.::
(22:47:57) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: also smiles and triggers the picture, then figures what the hell and goes for the surprise kiss, triggering another picture :: CO: You're on a strange planet doing science with me and taking pictures in field coveralls. I couldn't NOT kiss you.
(22:48:01) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: I wonder what I might smell to a large predator... ::Chuckles to himself.::
(22:49:11) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Your conclusion is valid!
(22:49:32) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Purely scientifically, of course. :: smirks ::
(22:49:52) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: softens at the question and interest in him :: SEC: We have nice, large replicators in Cargo Bay 3, so I put in the plans for everything, fabricated it and transported it here. Easy, really. I even set it up so that it would autobuild on arrival.
(22:50:10) SEC_1Lt_Syvek: :: opens his eyes from a quick stint of meditation, still aware enough of his surroundings to protect his charge, but having cleared his mind ::
(22:50:30) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks at the resulting picture and hugs the imager to her chest, blushing :: CO: I'm kinda going to treasure this picture forever.
(22:50:44) SEC_Lt_Kuari: CTO: Wow. :: pauses, staring at it :: I didn't bring a building with me.
(22:50:48) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: I expect you will give me a copy, yes?
(22:51:18) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks Kuari up and down :: SEC: You didn't bring clothing, either.
(22:51:23) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: twirls away, clutching it posessively :: CO: Maybe. If you're good.
(22:51:46) SEC_Lt_Kuari: CTO: aims her head at Wolfe :: Nope! Just the way I like it!
(22:52:01) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: But I do not like being good! Especially on shore leave.
(22:52:59) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Trails off a little as he spots some animal tracks, following them some way before they shoot off towards the forest in the distance.::
(22:53:12) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: raises an eyebrow, half-turns and falls into his cask chair :: SEC: Alright. If I did that, I'd be in some trouble.
(22:53:24) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Oh reeeeally? :: wiggles her eyebrows and seductively pulls up the hem of one of the legs of her field coveralls ::
(22:54:08) CO_Capt_Harper: A flash of calf! Scandalous!
(22:54:46) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: peers at Wolfe's back, momentarily attempting to visualize him naked ::
(22:55:05) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Packs himself a pipe quickly, before carrying back on course to the water.::
(22:55:47) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: SEC: Feel free to take a look inside. :: returns to his book ::
(22:56:08) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: There's more where that came from, gorgeous! :: pulls up the hem of the other leg instead ::
(22:57:02) CO_Capt_Harper: :: gives her a wry grin and saunters into the shuttle ::
