(21:17:27) CO_Capt_Harper: :: in her ready room, nodding and Yessiring to an Admiral ::
(21:17:47) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: stands rigidly on the Bridge while Harper's in the RR ::
(21:18:31) CO_Capt_Harper: Admiral: any cost. Yes sir, I... I understand.
(21:19:09) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::At the ENG console, humming to himself as he goes over systems reports.::
(21:19:12) CO_Capt_Harper: Admiral: No sir, it will not be a problem. We will handle it.
(21:20:39) CO_Capt_Harper: Admiral: Yes sir, thank you sir. Harper out.
(21:20:46) CO_Capt_Harper: :: cuts the comm with a frown ::
(21:21:01) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: watching the ready room channel status while running readiness checks on all systems and making sure all crew are aboard, anticipating a swift departure ::
(21:21:50) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: at the secondary science station, attempting to draft a message to her sister, but failing, so closes that window and returns to preparing for whatever the next mission is ::
(21:23:01) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: running through checklists, also anticipating a swift departure ::
(21:23:04) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::taps his fingers on the mission console, quietly going through the events of the last week in his mind::
(21:23:35) CO_Capt_Harper: :: stands, collects herself, does a Picard maneuver, and walks briskly onto the bridge :: XO: Report.
(21:24:49) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: turns slightly towards Harper :: CO: We're standing by for high warp or slipstream and all departments are at the ready.
(21:25:33) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Thank you. :: walks over the helm and leans over Suzuki :: NAV: Excuse me a moment, lieutenant.
(21:25:51) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: arrives at the Bridge, changed and ready for duty. His Yurt has been transported to an empty cargo bay for later disassembly. Relieving the 2LT at Tactical 1, Wolfe looks over the status of his station and the department. ::
(21:26:10) CO_Capt_Harper: :: types in a set of coordinates on the console :: NAV: Plot a slipstream solution to these coordinates.
(21:28:39) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::turns in his seat to watch Harper, wondering what their orders are exactly. He studies her face closely, seeing the slight downturn of her eyebrows, the tightness at the corners of her eyes - whatever it is, it doesn't seem positive::
(21:29:23) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: blinks at Harper for a second before realizing that the Captain is going to use her console, and leans aside to accommodate Harper's reach :: CO: Of course, Sir. :: begins plotting the slipstream, then stops :: CO: You are aware that traveling to these coordinates would violate diplomatic agreements?
(21:29:50) CO_Capt_Harper: NAV: It is right on the edge of violating such agreements, but yes, I am aware. Continue.
(21:29:59) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Antennae twitch.::
(21:30:25) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: studies Harper from his position at the center of the Bridge ::
(21:30:33) CO_Capt_Harper: :: walks from the helm to her chair and sits ::
(21:30:45) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: As you order, Captain. :: continues plotting slipstream solution ::
(21:30:48) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Configure the ship for slipstream flight.
(21:30:57) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: sits down next to Harper ::
(21:31:38) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CTO: Yellow alert, shields up.
(21:31:51) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: lifts an eyebrow, but keeps her gaze on her console, waiting to see exactly what will happen ::
(21:32:09) XO_Cdr_Vallero: NAV: Configure slipstream geometery.
(21:32:30) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: activates :: CO: Aye, Captain. Yellow Alert. Shields are up.
(21:33:41) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Slipstream solution calculated. Geometry configuration complete.
(21:33:56) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Climbs onto the shuttle that was sent to his camp for him. :: Pilot: What's going on? :: The Pilot replies :: TAC: The ship tried to call you, but you left your commbadge in your quarters before you returned to shore leave. Luckily we noted where you were camping. :: Takes his commbadge that the pilot hands him. :: Pilot: Gee, wonder why I did that...
(21:34:18) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: All souls aboard. All hands and systems report ready.
(21:35:40) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Randen's shuttle lands in Atlantis's shuttlebay, making Wright's statement true.
(21:35:57) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Thank you Commander. NAV: Warp one, stand by for slipstream.
(21:36:37) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: Shall we be requiring any modifications for our destination, Captain?
(21:36:52) CO_Capt_Harper: ENG: No, lieutenant.
(21:37:13) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Nods::
(21:38:22) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: breaks orbit and moves toward the coordinates at warp 1, ready to initiate slipstream ::
(21:39:00) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Climbs off the shuttle and double times it out of the shuttle bay. Heading to his quarters to drop off his duffle bag and to get ready for his next shift. The pilot had filled him in on what was going on enroute to the ship. ::
(21:39:07) CO_Capt_Harper: NAV: Initiate slipstream flight.
(21:40:05) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: kicks off the one-minute countdown as the slipstream forms ahead of the ship ::
(21:40:39) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Shipwide* All hands prepare for slipstream flight.
(21:41:36) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: monitors the ship's preparation for slipstream on his chair screen ::
(21:42:01) CO_Capt_Harper: :: lets out a breath as the slipstream approaches ::
(21:42:53) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Entering slipstream. :: as the ship is pulled in ::
(21:42:54) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Atlantis is smoothly pulled into the slipstream and enters stable flight.
(21:43:44) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: watches the main viewer, always fascinated by the process ::
(21:45:05) CO_Capt_Harper: :: swears under her breath in Mandarin as the ship settles into slipstream ::
(21:48:32) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Enters his quarters and drops his dufflebag on the floor along the wall out of the way. Goes into the bathroom and starts a sonic shower. ::
(21:48:33) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Several hours later, we approach the target.
(21:49:45) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Still humming himself, in time to the thrum of the ship; looking at reports.::
(21:50:07) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Approaching target, Captain.
(21:50:37) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: runs a final check of the console just to make sure it won't be inclined to blow or malfunction should anything... interesting happen. And because one of the upper screens is a few seconds slow on response time. ::
(21:51:33) CO_Capt_Harper: CTO: As soon as we exit slipstream, take us to red alert.
(21:51:59) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Aye, Captian. :: prepares ::
(21:52:01) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: glances at Harper ::
(21:52:15) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Steps out of the shower. Shaves the slight beard he grew while on shore leave. Then gets dressed in a crisp new uniform. Satisfied by his appearance he leaves his quarters to the nearest TL. :: Bridge.
(21:52:22) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Approaching slipstream exit in two minutes. :: hopes that the drift is in our favor ::
(21:53:16) CO_Capt_Harper: :: swears under her breath in French ::
(21:53:28) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Once on the bridge, Randen wastes no time taking Tactical 2 as the red alert klaxons started during his TL ride up. ::
(21:53:37) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: :: pauses :: What was that?
(21:53:44) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: French.
(21:53:59) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: opens his mouth to retort, then closes it ::
(21:54:51) CO_Capt_Harper: :: eyes set on the viewscreen ::
(21:54:53) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Exiting slipstream in 10. 9. 8...
(21:55:39) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Atlantis exits slipstream and appears dramatically into normal space.
(21:55:43) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: activates the Red Alert with weapons hot. ::
(21:55:55) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Put the nearby fleet on screen, Commander.
(21:55:58) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: switches the console displays to views of sensor readings and other such systems ::
(21:56:38) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks for a nearby fleet on sensors and puts it onscreen, looking up at the image intently ::
(21:57:15) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> A ragtag fleet of ships appears on the main viewer, obviously Romulan in construction, but with no warbirds present.
(21:57:25) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Drift just under one AU, border unviolated.
(21:57:31) CO_Capt_Harper: NAV: Well done, lieutenant.
(21:57:50) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Give me a communication channel.
(21:57:50) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: studies his console :: CO: Looks like about fifty ships. All minimally armed.
(21:57:53) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: gives her console a meaningful pat ::
(21:57:55) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: stares at the Romulan ships on screen ::
(21:57:58) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: looks up at the screen and promptly lifts an eyebrow. This should be interesting, indeed ::
(21:58:23) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: They look Romulan, but I hesitate to call them that.
(21:58:33) CO_Capt_Harper: CTO: They are indeed Romulan.
(21:58:36) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: furrows her brow and works at her console :: CO: ...Channel open, Captain.
(21:58:47) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: Republic?
(21:58:51) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: There's something... different about them. They are moving toward the border.
(21:59:26) CO_Capt_Harper: Comm: To whomever commands the Romulan fleet approaching the border. This is Captain Kathryn Harper of the Federation Starship Atlantis. You are about to be in further violation of treaty beyond what you already are. Please respond.
(22:01:34) Proconsul_Voresh: @::brings up the viewer:: *Atlantis CO*: Starship Atlantis, this is Proconsul Voresh previous of the colony Sinul. ::her face looks dirty and haggard and the bridge behind her has blankets and people laid out on the floor::
(22:02:17) CO_Capt_Harper: :: stands as she sees the scene, both Voresh's face and what's going on behind her ::
(22:03:04) CO_Capt_Harper: *Voresh* Proconsul. I am afraid that I can not allow your fleet to cross the neutral zone border. Entering it was already a treaty violation.
(22:03:51) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: stares at the screen for a few moments before looking back at the console ::
(22:04:15) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: stands with Harper, staying just behind ::
(22:04:21) Proconsul_Voresh: @::shakes her head, too tired and dejected to look afraid:: *CO*: We have nowhere else to go, Captain Harper. Our colonies are under threat of attack from the Romulan Empire, my world was ravaged by a biological weapon...there is nothing for us, our only hope lies with Federation amnesty.
(22:06:44) CO_Capt_Harper: :: tries to keep her concern for these people from showing on her face, since she has orders :: *Voresh* I am sorry for the plight of your people, Proconsul. But my orders are clear; I am to stop you from crossing the border at any cost. Turn away or I will be- I will be forced to open fire.
(22:07:55) Proconsul_Voresh: @::she looks momentarily horrified:: *CO*: Captain....I....I cannot. There is nothing. I have hundreds of thousands of lives at stake, if we turn back we have nowhere to go, our ships are damaged, old, life support is failing...if we turn back we will die, we must keep going forward.
(22:07:55) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: turns away and coughs to cover the gape of shock at Kate's last statement ::
(22:08:16) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Turns around from his console, a sad look in his eyes.::
(22:09:17) CO_Capt_Harper: :: frowns, fighting to maintain decorum :: *Voresh* Turn back, Proconsul, or we will destroy your entire fleet. Atlantis out.
(22:09:24) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: keeps her gaze studiously on her console, focusing on the console and not the screen ::
(22:09:42) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::simply gawks:: CO: Captain, you can't be serious.
(22:10:07) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: still in shock, but manages to close the channel :: CO: Captain, surely they can stop where they are and refugee status can be negotiated. We must have options.
(22:10:21) CO_Capt_Harper: :: almost collapses back into her chair ::
(22:10:31) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks up as though his eyes buring holes in the back of Harper's head, silently waiting for orders, no emotion on his face. ::
(22:10:40) CO_Capt_Harper: :: swears elaborately in Bolian, then stands again ::
(22:10:58) Proconsul_Voresh: @::collapses back in her chair, letting out a long breath:: Navigation: How long until we cross into Federation space?
(22:11:15) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: stares hard at the screen before it blacks out, then watches Harper go back to her chair, then back up ::
(22:11:21) Proconsul_Voresh: <RomNAV> Voresh: About nine minutes, Proconsul.
(22:12:31) CO_Capt_Harper: :: conutes swearing until she turns to Kymar :: CMO: No, doctor.... no.
(22:13:18) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::stands up from his seat and nods:: CO: Then let me take a few medical teams over there. They need aid, and interstellar law - not to mention my oath as a Doctor - means that I - we - can't stand back and do nothing.
(22:14:22) CO_Capt_Harper: CMO: Stand by for now. I promise you, we will do something.
(22:14:37) CO_Capt_Harper: CTO: Time until they cross the border?
(22:15:01) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: About seven minutes.
(22:15:11) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: approaches Harper, quietly :: CO: Captain...I didn't hear what your orders were, but I can guess. I know you don't see fit to inform me in this situation, but...we can't let them cross. You know that.
(22:15:39) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: reiterates :: CO: Surely we can ask them to stop where they are while we come up with a solution.
(22:16:09) CO_Capt_Harper: :: narrows her eyes at Vallero, and responds, equally quietly :: XO: Do you have any suggestions on how to accomplish that without killing them?
(22:16:44) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::nods, seeing the look in her eyes and trusting her to do the right thing, taking his seat and beginning some biological scans of their ships::
(22:16:49) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks from Harper to Vallero, wondering if her suggestion is stupid and that's why no one is listening ::
(22:17:42) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Turns back in his seat, staying quiet.::
(22:18:05) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: looks up at Wright as she speaks, then back down at Harper, now very close to her :: CO: You've warned them. Romulans are notorious for their cleverness and deception. We don't know what they're really up to. If they were really innocent, they would stop. We have orders for a reason.
(22:18:21) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: taps her fingers softly on her console, wondering what they could do. Wonders for a moment about the children on those ships, but then stops herself and focuses instead on scanning the ships, checking them for any potential threats, not that she expects any. ::
(22:19:37) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: I am not slaughtering civilians. :: turns to Lexy :: CSO: Our orders are to stop them, not negotiate to allow them refugee status.
(22:20:37) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: So we stop them in the neutral zone. Orders followed. Then we tell Command their situation and request diplomatic intervention.
(22:21:12) CO_Capt_Harper: ENG: I know this is a long shot, but is there anything we can do to immobilze all of those ships at once?
(22:21:43) Proconsul_Voresh: @<RomulanNav> Proconsul: Four minutes to Federation space, Proconsul.
(22:21:47) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: I didn't join Star Fleet to murder innocent refugees, so if that's going to happen then my resignation will be effective immediately.
(22:21:56) Proconsul_Voresh: @::nods, her haggard eyes drawing tight as she watches the viewscreen::
(22:22:05) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Shakes his head.:: CO: I'm afraid not.
(22:22:18) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Neither did I, Commander.
(22:22:44) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: Give them a warning shot. You heard Voresh. They're not stopping. If they don't take the warning, they're up to something. I don't want to slaughter innocents any more than you do!
(22:22:52) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Even if they turn around now, what's to stop them from entering Federation Space once we leave? They are still headed this way, four minutes out.
(22:22:59) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: I know. But I'd rather face a court martial than have that on my conscience.
(22:23:40) CO_Capt_Harper: :: wheels back around to Vallero :: XO: And if they ignore the warning shot?
(22:23:56) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: I only forsee an active dialogue stopping them, Captain.
(22:24:20) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: I agree with Lt Ilaihr.
(22:24:47) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: Perhaps the promise of escort to somewhere outside of Federation space, for deliberation.
(22:24:52) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: They must be running from something if they're willing to risk this.
(22:25:08) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Something much scarier than us.
(22:25:26) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: It's as I said. They know not to cross into our space. If they don't stop, they mean us harm and they're not what they seem. Just look at history. You *must* follow your orders!
(22:25:36) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Hail them again.
(22:26:15) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: hails again :: CO: Open.
(22:26:19) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: finds nothing of real concern on the scans, so shifts over to checking the status of their warp cores, just to assure herself that none of them are in danger of a core breach anytime soon ::
(22:26:47) Proconsul_Voresh: @::nods as her Operations officers tells her of the incoming message, putting it up on screen::
(22:27:04) CO_Capt_Harper: *Voresh* Proconsul Voresh, this is Captain Harper with your final warning. We will fire upon you if you cross into Federation space, per the treaty.
(22:27:36) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks away and closes her eyes, pressing her lips together in a thin line ::
(22:28:08) Proconsul_Voresh: @::she shakes her head:: CO: We cannot defend ourselves, Captain. But we cannot turn back. I'm on us if you will, but we've nowhere left to run.
(22:28:52) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: They could... denounce the treaty.
(22:28:57) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: wants to scream at the screen for them to just stop where they are, why does no one consider this an option? ::
(22:29:03) CO_Capt_Harper: :: turns away from the viewer and swears vehemently in Klingon ::
(22:29:06) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: growls under his breath, not loud enough for the comm to pick up ::
(22:30:30) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: has Vallero's warning shot all keyed up and ready to go. ::
(22:30:50) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: follows Harper, now whispering harshly in her ear :: I've heard this kind of thing before! Kathryn, if we don't stop them, our crew is in danger. Command knows what's going to happen if you don't!
(22:31:28) CO_Capt_Harper: :: makes the throat slash gesture again at Lexy, then wheels on Vallero ::
(22:31:52) Proconsul_Voresh: @::sits back in her chair, opening a communication to the fleet:: *Fleetwide*: Raise shields and prepare to enter Federation space.
(22:31:53) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: cuts the channel and stares at her hands, considering her options ::
(22:32:01) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: First of all, that is Captain or ma'am to you.
(22:32:12) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::grips the edge of the console, watching the CO and XO battle it out::
(22:32:34) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Second, we will not fire upon civilians. That is not what we are here for!
(22:33:48) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: Perhaps... for unwanted company?
(22:34:59) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: begins surreptitiously encoding a text transmission explaining that we don't wish to hurt them and could they just stop where they are so we have more time to figure out a solution, just in case she ends up needing it ::
(22:35:15) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: sighs, defeated, leaning back slightly :: Yes, Captain, I apologize. I'm just convinced these are not civilians. Unless you know something I don't. :: glances up at Wright, across to Kymar, then back to Harper :: I don't want to the crew put in danger. I'm sure Command wouldn't expect you to fire on civilians either.
(22:35:37) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: They have no Warbirds. Does not mean they aren't there.
(22:35:40) CO_Capt_Harper: :: nods, then turns back to Lexy :: One more time.
(22:35:45) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Hail again.
(22:35:58) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: stops and looks askance at Vallero, surprised at how quickly he changed his tune ::
(22:36:23) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: taps :: CO: Open.
(22:36:26) Proconsul_Voresh: @::grips the arms of her chair as the communication comes up on the viewscreen::
(22:37:26) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: turns slightly in her seat to watch the conversation, curious about how this could end up ::
(22:38:08) CO_Capt_Harper: *Voresh* Proconsul, I have orders to stop you from entering Federation space. But I will not fire on you. I am asking you to pause at the border while I contact our diplomatic corps to attempt to secure... something.. for your people.
(22:39:14) CO_Capt_Harper: *Voresh* In the meantime, I am prepared to offer medical aid to your people.
(22:39:30) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: internal "YESSSS" with fist-pump ::
(22:40:00) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: nods in satisfaction and turns back to her console ::
(22:40:04) Proconsul_Voresh: @::she hesitates, looking at the viewscreen, watching Harper's face for proof of her honesty:: *CO*: We need medicine, warm blankets and clothes, and some spare parts. Agree to this and...and we will stop here.
(22:41:00) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: internally dances the dance of the vindicated ::
(22:41:17) TAC_2LT_Randen: :: Lets out a sigh of releif after holding his breath the last few tense moments. ::
(22:41:33) CO_Capt_Harper: *Voresh* :: smiles in relief :: Agreed, Proconsul - and I apologize. I had my orders, but, well, perhaps there was another way.
(22:42:37) Proconsul_Voresh: @::she nods, wishin she could smile, but feeling simply too tired and relieved:: *CO*: I had hoped, Captain. There is always another way...::opens up the fleetwide comm:: *Fleetwide*: All vessels, stand down engines, shields and await orders.
(22:43:04) CO_Capt_Harper: *Voresh* I will be back in contact in a few minutes after arranging the initial aid. Atlantis out.
(22:43:45) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: closes the channel :: CO: Closed. I'm proud to serve on your ship, Captain.
(22:43:59) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: :: quietly :: Thank you.
(22:44:03) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: ::stands up again, a look of relief on his face, and respect in his eyes:: CO: I'll get some teams together, Captain. Permission to transport over with relief supplies?
(22:44:06) CO_Capt_Harper: :: sits back down, heavily ::
(22:44:58) CO_Capt_Harper: CMO: Prepare for transport, but do not beam over until we have confirmation from them that they are ready to receive. CTO: Confirm that they are stopping, and once they have, prepare security escorts for the medical teams.
(22:45:18) CO_Capt_Harper: ENG: Get engineering teams together to assist with whatever spares they need.
(22:45:42) CMO_Cmdr_Kymar: CO: Understood. ::nods, making his way to the Turbolift::
(22:45:43) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Smiles.:: CO: I was just about to ask such a thing.
(22:45:52) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Aye. :: watches sensors ::
(22:46:11) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: thinks those are both wise decisions - they appear to be refugees, but caution is still very appropriate ::
(22:46:23) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: sits quickly next to Harper, his voice incredulous :: CO: Captain, are you sure this is wise? I want to believe they're refugees, but I can't. This has to be a trap. Sending our personnel to their ships could get them killed! I'm relieved you got them to stop, but maybe we should stop there and think this through, verify what they're telling us is true.
(22:47:08) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Alright. CSO: Initiate scans of that fleet.
(22:47:40) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: It has been quite some time since I last saw the inside of a Romulan vessel. ::Hums to himself, prepping repair teams.::
(22:47:44) TAC_2LT_Randen: CTO: Permission to escort one of the away teams? Anything to get me away from this console for a while.
(22:47:56) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: listening to Vallero is leaving a sour taste in her mouth :: CO: Initial scans have already been completed. Running detailed scans now.
(22:47:56) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: The fleet has stopped. Preparing security teams for transport.
(22:48:07) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: TAC: Approved. Get to the Armory.
