(21:21:07) CO_Capt_Harper: :: still at the helm, looking over the readouts on the console as other reports pour in ::
(21:21:45) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: still in the Captain's chair, covering for Harper while she navigates ::
(21:25:04) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: listening to chatter on the Marine channels ::
(21:25:52) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: SCI: Sehlat, are we ordered to return to duty, or await another deployment?
(21:26:36) CO_Capt_Harper: :: transfers Atlantis to a stationary orbit, high above the facility ::
(21:27:19) MED_Ens_Morsby: ::in the Sickbay, dealing with a whole bunch of wounded, walking from body to body, checking life signs, vitals, blood pressure. One man coughs up blood, and Mitch wipes it off the counter and swiftly grabs a pill bottle off a shelf and drops a tablet into the man's shaking palms::
(21:27:39) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: worries about Kuari in the back of her mind ::
(21:27:45) SCI_Lt_TLira: NAV: I believe we are currently awaiting further orders. I will check.
(21:28:26) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Are the Sharks all aboard safely after that blast?
(21:29:27) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Aye, Captain, the last Mustang has touched down and the launch bay is secure. One of the pilots is injured and was met by a Medical team for an escort to Sickbay.
(21:29:42) SCI_Lt_TLira: *CO* T'Lira to Harper.
(21:29:49) CO_Capt_Harper: *SCI* Harper here.
(21:30:18) SCI_Lt_TLira: *CO* Are there any orders for the Sharks at the moment?
(21:30:22) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: checks his tricorder and passes by McKnight, taking the lead toward where he expects Ops to be in this facility, or at the least where it would be if he was designing the place. Which he didn't. He checks his crew behind him and makes his way :: ALL: Follow me!
(21:30:45) CO_Capt_Harper: *SCI* Not at present. Return to normal duties, and good flying out there.
(21:31:06) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: gestures to Kuari to catch up with him ::
(21:31:13) MED_Ens_Morsby: ::The man looks up, his eyes bloodshot, into Mitch's steely hawk-like stare, who nods at the tablet and heads off to another patient to set their cast. The man looks at the tablet, and swallows it::
(21:31:59) SCI_Lt_TLira: *CO* Thank you, sir. :: turns to the other Sharks :: Sharks: It appears we are to return to our duties. All of you performed excellently today.
(21:32:40) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: nods and does the obligatory high-fives and butt-pats with her teammates on the way to the showers ::
(21:32:43) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ :: hurries ahead of others to walk side by side with Wolfe, watching and listening ahead of them carefully ::
(21:33:24) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: looks out the corner of his visor at Kuari :: SEC: How are you feeling? :: the question has the slightest warmth to it ::
(21:34:05) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ CTO: My head is ringing, but I'll be all right, sir.
(21:34:08) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: heads for the locker room herself ::
(21:34:34) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Any additional report from the surface?
(21:35:15) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: Nothing so far. Shall I check in?
(21:35:36) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ SEC: Would you rather hang back? I have plenty of marines. :: gestures behind them. ::
(21:35:37) CO_Capt_Harper: :: finds it hard to strike the balance between bothering the Marines and wanting to know ::
(21:36:08) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Give them a few more minutes.
(21:37:07) MED_Ens_Morsby: ::a man is rushed inside, a pilot, on a gurney, a large gaping wound on the left side of his chest, and his arm twisted in a bad way. Worst of the worst Mitch, time to use a hypospray. PLacing the device at the man's arm, he felt it grow lax in his hand, and then switched out the liquid for a regeneration accelerant. As for the wound in his chest, he would need closer examination::
(21:37:36) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: In the meantime, get a damage and casualty report.
(21:37:49) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ :: straightens taller, which is quite significant as she's already walking on two legs and towering over most others to keep her rifle at the ready :: CTO: That isn't necessary, sir. I won't let you down.
(21:39:18) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *MED* Bridge to Sickbay. Status on casualties, please.
(21:41:16) MED_Ens_Morsby: *XO*: None yet, but the pilot you sent down seems to be in poor condition. We also got a Tactical officer, sustained severe burns to his face. Working on the pilot, have a nurse on the burn victim::
(21:41:37) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ SEC: Alright. you let me know if you need anything. :: continues forward ::
(21:41:55) MED_Ens_Morsby: *XO*: Fifty sustained injuries though.
(21:42:33) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *MED* Thank you, Doctor. I'll let you get back to work.
(21:42:47) CO_Capt_Harper: :: was biting her lip waiting for the report, releases it on hearing that no one died, at least up here, but the surface still worries her ::
(21:43:42) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: glances towards Harper and sees that she heard, so he turns his attention towards investigating the state of the ship ::
(21:46:28) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: still listening in on the Marines via comm channel, but hasn't heard any developments ::
(21:47:41) CO_Capt_Harper: :: stares at the planet, still shown in IR on the main viewer, but now entirely in view due to their stationary orbit, and wonders how Blackthorne dealt with waiting on the bridge while an away team did their work ::
(21:48:17) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: hunched over his console, reading a report :: CO: Minor damage to decks seven, fourteen through seventeen, and the lateral sensor array. Nothing serious.
(21:48:38) MED_Ens_Morsby: ::Takes a closer look at the wound, and applies a cream to the burn, and carefully injects a stronger regenerative into the wound itself, making sure not to inject any into the non-wounded areas, as that would create an excess of cells much like in cancer::
(21:49:28) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: The Mustang that was caught in the shockwave took some damage, but Engineering has a team working on it and expects to have it repaired within twelve hours.
(21:50:13) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Great news. :: pats the helm :: Now if we can only get such good news from down there...
(21:50:37) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: It is a good thing, we are still critically low on Mustangs.
(21:50:41) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: listens to Wright's report, satisfied with the outcome, as it could have been worse ::
(21:51:23) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Indeed. Hopefully the pilot recovers as quickly.
(21:52:08) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Yes... those are even harder to replace than the fighters. :: frowns ::
(21:54:07) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: turns a corner and finds himself at a door. He signals the demolitionists who set up the necessary charges. They step far enough back for the blast. :: ALL: Prepare yourselves. There could be anything in here.
(21:54:07) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: The door blows away, and Wolfe and his team prepare for the battle that is sure to ensue, taking aim andwaiting for the smoke to clear. ::
(21:55:59) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ :: smashes herself against a wall over another marine's head, her rifle poised towards the clearing smoke, and waits for a hostile target to present itself, keeping her ear poised for orders ::
(21:56:04) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Phaser fire and grenades come out of the door.
(21:57:08) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: watches as a grenade lands at his feet and for whatever reason, he kicks it back through the door, shooting back at the where the phaser fire might be coming from ::
(21:57:35) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: finishes changing and showering and all that and heads for the TL :: TL: Bridge.
(21:58:07) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: dashes to catch up :: SCI: May I join you? That is also my destination.
(21:58:11) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ :: at the incoming phaser fire, fires her rifle in the same direction, using judgment based on their sources, hoping to at least curtail some of it and send their enemies ducking for cover instead ::
(21:58:42) CO_Capt_Harper: :: leans back in the chair at helm and watches the planet on the screen, waiting ::
(21:59:04) SCI_Lt_TLira: NAV: Of course. :: reaches out to hold the door so Suzuki can board the TL ::
(21:59:40) MED_Ens_Morsby: ::Once the wound is sufficiently treated, he has one of the nurses hook him up to an IV of regenerative serum, a weaker dose this time, and goes to the facial burns vicitm::
(21:59:41) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: also waits, stirring some in The Chair ::
(22:00:27) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: steps onto the TL :: SCI: Thank you.
(22:01:27) MED_Ens_Morsby: *XO*: Pilot is safe, we pulled him back from death's door.
(22:01:39) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: continues firing into the void, noting that there seems to be a little less firepower coming their way ::
(22:02:28) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The opposition does appear to have lessened.
(22:03:52) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: sees a chance and takes it :: ALL: We're making progress. Alpha Team, get in there. Gamma Team, cover them. :: gets right up next to the door to support his troops ::
(22:06:36) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Resistance stiffens when the Marines charge through, but once they're in, doesn't last long.
(22:06:37) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: nods, listening along to the progress ::
(22:07:04) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: the TL reaches its destination in its usual time, depositing its passengers. She heads for the secondary sci/ops station, unlocking it and checking on current happenings. ::
(22:08:18) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *MED* :: straightens up, happy for good news, any news :: Thank you, Ensign. Good work. Keep me updated.
(22:09:15) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: heads for the NAV station, where the Captain is seated :: CO: Captain. Would you like me to resume my station, or do you have other orders?
(22:09:56) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ :: rushes into the smoke, relying on her HUD's heat signatures in the smoke to find her targets and, ending up close to several, does what she does best and throws them against walls ::
(22:09:57) MED_Ens_Morsby: *XO*: Understood sir. Also, may I give a word of advice?
(22:10:15) CO_Capt_Harper: :: looks up at Suzuki with a start :: NAV: Oh, of course, lieutenant, the helm is yours. :: stands and offers the seat ::
(22:11:50) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: notes that the firing their way, followed by that of his marines who have entered Ops, has ended and now steps through the door to find the base's commander and all the Section 31 combatants with their hands in the air and weapons on the ground. He steps toward the Base Commander :: BCDR: I am Major Benedict Wolfe of Atlantis. What you and Section 31 have done to the Federation is nothing short of treason. But we'll deal
(22:11:55) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *MED* :: raises his eyebrows, Morsby's words bringing him back to when the ensign "gave him advice" in the lounge :: Go ahead.
(22:12:27) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: gives a slight bow :: CO: Thank you, Captain. :: steps forward and takes the seat at the NAV station ::
(22:12:52) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ BCDR (continued): with that later. Right now, you have a choice. If you'll assist me, I will have that noted when you come to trial.
(22:13:03) CO_Capt_Harper: NAV: Good flying out there. :: turns and sees T'Lira is back as well :: SCI: And to you too, acting CAG.
(22:13:24) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: notes Harper standing and does so himself, giving up The Chair ::
(22:13:27) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Thank you, Captain.
(22:13:34) MED_Ens_Morsby: *XO*: Try and inform some of the crew that pills are just as good as hyposprays. Some of them refused to take them. Thank you!
(22:14:02) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: looks over and nods before returning to trying to catch up on what all just happened, such as why the station blew ::
(22:14:15) CO_Capt_Harper: @ BCDR> CTO: Atlantis? What the fuck do you people even want here? It's you that have committed treason.
(22:14:26) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: gives T'Lira a "welcome back" nod ::
(22:15:24) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *MED* :: grins somewhat wryly, humored :: I think medical advice would be better received by yourself, but if you have issues with specific individuals, submit a detailed report and I'll make sure they're dealt with.
(22:15:41) CO_Capt_Harper: :: nods to Vallero :: XO: Thank you, Commander.
(22:16:49) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ :: watches those with their hands up with predatory eyes, ready to pounce if one of them makes a wrong move ::
(22:17:00) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: nods back to Harper, taking his seat to the side ::
(22:17:29) MED_Ens_Morsby: *XO*: Thank you, I will do that. But, just for your discretion, Cadets Jamesy, Timmon, Aston and Nettle
(22:18:33) CO_Capt_Harper: :: Picard-maneuvers her uniform and sits center ::
(22:19:18) MED_Ens_Morsby: *XO*:...are model patients to be respected.
(22:20:37) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *MED* I'll make a note of it. Thank you. :: grins to himself, and maybe Harper if she's listening ::
(22:21:19) CO_Capt_Harper: :: smirks, having overheard ::
(22:21:38) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: gets close enough for his speaking spittle to hit the Base Commander as he speaks quietly. :: BCDR: Is that so? You and your ilk kidnapped and faked the deaths of our commanding and executive officers. So let me repeat myself, but more clearly. Cooperate, and you won't be facing nitrogen asphyxiation.
(22:23:31) CO_Capt_Harper: @ BCDR> CTO: Major, you are dealing with trained operatives. No one here will give you any information, and having noticed your occasional care to use stun settings when feasible on your weaponry, we don't really fear your threats of death, either. Do what you must, then leave.
(22:26:47) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: stares at the BCDR a moment before continuing quietly :: We will do what we must and we will leave. :: cocks his head :: You'll be leaving with us. Hope that's not too inconvenient.
(22:29:32) CO_Capt_Harper: @ BCDR> You have room for all of us in your brig? To what end? You've taken great care not to kill as many as you can, and even gone to the trouble to disable our escort ships. You won't kill us, and keeping us will not get you any information.
(22:35:01) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ BCDR: We have. Because, as I am sure you know, we are Federation citizens, and most of Atlantis's crew are decent people. :: puts a gun to the Base Commander's head as he keys the power setting up into the lethal range :: Most of them. Please help us. There is a reason I am very good at my job. :: stares at the commander with beady eyes. ::
(22:35:50) CO_Capt_Harper: @ BCDR> No. Kill me if you must, but you won't do it. Most of Starfleet doesn't have the guts to do what must be done to keep the Federation safe.
(22:38:48) CO_Capt_Harper: @ BCDR> :: hopes he's right as he glances ever-so-briefly at the rifle ::
(22:41:01) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ BCDR: You will stand trial. I will see to that. And I will do what I can to make sure you are executed for your crimes against the Federation. This rabbit hole goes very deep, doesn't it? :: hands the Commander off to Kuari :: Syvek: Let's get into their computers and see if we can't locate our command team.
(22:41:31) CO_Capt_Harper: @ BCDR> ::: smirks :: CTO: I knew it.
(22:42:03) CO_Capt_Harper: @ SEC_1LT_Syvek> :: puts his eyebrow down, followed by his rifle, and begins trying to access the computers ::
(22:42:15) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: smirks back :: BCDR: Of course you did. That's why we're the good guys.
(22:42:32) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ :: takes hold of the BCDR, attempting to look scary for Wolfe's sake ::
(22:42:44) CO_Capt_Harper: @BCDR> :: eyes Kuari ::
(22:43:16) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ SEC: If he misbehaves, you have my permission to cause him as much pain as you like. Just don't kill him.
(22:43:34) CO_Capt_Harper: @ SEC_1LT_Syvek> CTO: The computer is heavily encrypted. I can not gain access.
(22:44:35) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Alright, time for a surface report.
(22:44:37) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: joins Syvek at the console :: SEC: Of course it is. we'll get around it. :: tries a few things of his own ::
(22:45:25) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> None of those things work.
(22:45:32) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *CTO* Atlantis to away team, report.
(22:47:03) CO_Capt_Harper: :: listens with anticipation ::
(22:47:11) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ *XO* Commander! It is very good to hear from you. We've secured the base, and we're in their Ops. Now, we need access to the computers. As you can imagine, the encryption is complex.
(22:48:15) CO_Capt_Harper: :: turns to look at him and quietly says :: XO: Tell me you can help with that, Daniel.
(22:49:39) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: sits up on the edge of his seat, delighted to hear the progress, then stands and begins walking at Harper's words :: *CTO* Good work. Encrypted, you say? I...may be able to help with that. Stand by for my arrival.
(22:50:35) CO_Capt_Harper: :: nods in approval, meeting his eyes, hoping her trust will not backfire ::
(22:50:38) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ *XO* We are all too ready. Sending you coordinates. :: nods to Syvek ::
(22:51:00) CO_Capt_Harper: @ SEC_1LT_Syvek> :: does so ::
(22:51:20) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: watches Vallero distrustfully ::
(22:51:35) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: hurries to the closest TR, boards the pad :: TRTech: Energize.
(22:52:10) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Vallero appears in the facility's Ops,
(22:52:40) XO_Cdr_Vallero: @ :: turns until he spots Wolfe and Syvek at the console and hurries over ::
(22:53:08) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: clears the way for Vallero. :: XO: Commander.
(22:53:23) CO_Capt_Harper: @ SEC_1LT_Syvek> :: nods to the Commander, wondering exactly how he will help ::
(22:55:10) XO_Cdr_Vallero: @ :: pointedly ignores the BCDR and studies the panel. After several moments of tapping through menus, he bites his lip and spends a minute receiving beeps of denial before... :: ALL: Hah! We're in!
(22:55:37) CO_Capt_Harper: @ BCDR> XO: I should have known you would turn on us.
(22:56:27) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: moves closer and looks over Vallero's shoulder, then turns to the Base Commander and swoops into kissing distance :: BCDR: See? Another decent human being. Too bad you'll never get a chance to learn to be one.
(22:57:35) XO_Cdr_Vallero: @ BCDR: Finally came to my senses before all was lost. Too bad for you it's too late. :: quickly navigates to the information they're looking for, and he grins widely :: CTO: Here it is! Copy this information, and let's get out of here.
(22:57:40) MED_Ens_Morsby: ::finishes bandaging the man's face and stands up, and looks over all of his patients. All have felt a pain today, tommorow, less so. That was why he worked, to lessen pain, and to stop it.::
(22:58:20) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: still unconvinced, it seems too easy... wonders if the data can be trusted ::
(22:58:45) CO_Capt_Harper: @ BCDR> CTO: You're just sadly irrelevant, but you.. XO: Vallero, you're the worst sort, that would turn on your own.
(22:59:40) XO_Cdr_Vallero: @ BCDR: I turned on my own when I joined a group that would betray two fine Starfleet officers. Now I'm just undoing the damage.
(22:59:43) CO_Capt_Harper: @ SEC_1LT_Syvek> XO: Perhaps there is... additional information that would be useful?
(23:00:17) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: keeps his attention on the Commander and stays uncomfortably close :: BCDR: You don't get to address him. :: dusts the commander off :: XO: Continue. Don't worry about my bitch here. :: turns back to the commander ::
(23:00:22) XO_Cdr_Vallero: @ SEC: Additional information?
