(21:26:39) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: stares down the base commander as Vallero does his work ::
(21:26:40) CO_Capt_Harper: :: waits for news from the dark planet below from the center seat, doing her best not to betray her anxiety ::
(21:27:14) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: listening in on the Marines' comm channels, trying to get an idea of what's going on ::
(21:27:23) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: running a routine scan for any potential enemy reinforcements ::
(21:28:08) CO_Capt_Harper: BCDR> :: looks rather bored while the computers are rifled through ::
(21:29:39) XO_Cdr_Vallero: @ *CO* Away Team to Atlantis. We have the location of Admiral Blackthorne and T'Kirr. First Lieutenant Syvek recommends we search the computers for more information. Shall we do that here, or take the computers with us?
(21:29:49) MED_Ens_Morsby: ::walks around sick bay, checking on each patient's vitals::
(21:31:36) CO_Capt_Harper: :: stands abruptly as the news arrives :: *XO* Harper here. Take the computers? Yes, they could prove useful. Do it.
(21:32:01) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: XO: Sir...
(21:33:45) XO_Cdr_Vallero: @ :: notes Wolfe's look and the base commander behind him, and adds :: *CO* Oh, and we'll be bringing aboard the base commander for further questioning, unless you object.
(21:33:58) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: in a very low growl so that only the base commander can hear :: BCDR: I'll love him, and keep him, and squeeze him, and call him George.
(21:34:44) CO_Capt_Harper: BCDR> That is my name, you know.
(21:34:56) MED_Ens_Morsby: ::goes over to one patient and lays a cold towel on his forehead and gives him a small injection with the hypospray::
(21:34:59) CO_Capt_Harper: *XO* To what end? Would he talk?
(21:35:30) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: smiles at the base commander :: CO: I can make him.
(21:36:49) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Our court-martials may be less traumatic if we can get as much evidence as possible that these people are acting outside of Federation law. Especially if they have other political prisoners.
(21:37:31) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: I doubt he would testify on our behalf.
(21:38:21) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: I'm not speaking of the the commander in particular, but of any potential evidence that can be gleaned from the base before we depart.
(21:38:27) CO_Capt_Harper: *CTO* I asked the Commander, Major.
(21:38:33) XO_Cdr_Vallero: @ *CO* He won't talk, no, but he may do us more good on board than down here if we find something in the computers we want to ask him about.
(21:39:17) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ *CO* I recognize that, sir. :: eyes fixed on George ::
(21:39:51) CO_Capt_Harper: George> :: popping his kunckles, one by one ::
(21:40:15) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: He could be evidence that this place existed, if we leave him behind the whole thing could vanish with no trace.
(21:42:00) MED_Ens_Morsby: ::Sees that all of his patients are on their way towards recovery and sits down and exhales, smiling. More or less, his job was done::
(21:42:23) CO_Capt_Harper: *XO* Which I doubt he would help us with. But, I will defer to your judgement on his usefulness.
(21:42:23) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Self: If he's even the actual base commander. I wonder if they'd obfuscate at that level...
(21:46:14) CO_Capt_Harper: *XO* Transmit the coordinates before anything else, then get those computers beamed up here. Disable their comm systems before you leave.
(21:47:06) XO_Cdr_Vallero: @*CO* Understood. Coordinates coming now. :: nods to Syvek ::
(21:47:22) MED_Ens_Morsby: *Bridge*: The patients are treated and on their way towards a full recovery::
(21:47:37) XO_Cdr_Vallero: @ *CTO* He's all yours. Make sure he's comfortable in a cell until we need him.
(21:47:39) CO_Capt_Harper: Syvek> :: transmits the planet's location to Atlantis ::
(21:48:49) XO_Cdr_Vallero: @ *CTO* Assign some of your men to prepare the computers for transport. I'll make sure the comm system is down.
(21:48:49) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ XO: Aye, sir. :: turns George around roughly and taks him to a good beam-out point. ::
(21:49:37) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ XO: Aye. Kuari, Syvek. That's your teams.
(21:50:20) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ :: nods to Wolfe and finds a computer to shut down and remove from the wall ::
(21:50:37) CO_Capt_Harper: Syvek> CTO: Yes, sir. :: delegates a few consoles and starts in on one himself ::
(21:50:47) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *MED* Acknowledged, thank you, doctor.
(21:51:13) MED_Ens_Morsby: *Bridge*: You're very welcome. Need my help up there?
(21:51:18) XO_Cdr_Vallero: @ :: accesses a panel not being disassembled and searches for the comm systems ::
(21:51:52) CO_Capt_Harper: Syvek> :: places that computer in an open area in the center of the floor, starting a pile ::
(21:52:20) MED_Ens_Morsby: ::while speaking, begins to write a DIGITAL medical report on each patient::
(21:52:25) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *MED* I do not believe any medical attention is necessary on the Bridge at this time, doctor.
(21:53:07) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ :: adds to Syvek's convenient pile, making it higher ::
(21:53:08) MED_Ens_Morsby: *Bridge*: Thank you. Morsby out. ::more paperwork::
(21:53:32) CO_Capt_Harper: Syvek> :: methodically re-appropriating computers :
(21:53:49) XO_Cdr_Vallero: @ :: after locating the comm systems, it doesn't take long to shut them down ::
(21:54:26) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Sickbay reports that all patients are stable and recovering, Captain.
(21:54:35) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: That is good news, thank you.
(21:54:51) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ :: finishes with the last of the computers not already being handled and begins to think about the upcoming rescue ::
(21:54:53) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Did the away team send up the coordinates?
(21:56:04) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: places cuffs on George and hands him off to a 2Lt so he can make sure things are going on schedule with the extraction. He steps up next to Vallero. :: XO: Thank you, sir.
(21:56:11) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Yes, Captain, I'm sending them to your console now. :: tap taps ::
(21:56:42) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: anticipating orders, prepares to lay in a course ::
(21:57:11) CO_Capt_Harper: :: eagerly looks at them, then quietly says :: Hidden in plain sight...
(21:57:37) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks more closely at the coordinates herself ::
(21:57:48) XO_Cdr_Vallero: @ CTO: He should stand trial anyway. :: leaves out the fact that he should as well, as that's for another time anyway ::
(21:58:31) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ XO: Aye, sir. And I look forward to that. How hard would you like me to try to get informaton out of him before then?
(21:58:53) XO_Cdr_Vallero: @ ALL: All right, people, let's wrap it up. We've got two very important people to meet up with, wouldn't you say? Begin transports and let's get out of here.
(21:59:18) CO_Capt_Harper: :: sends them to the helm : NAV: Plot a slipstream solution to those coordinates.
(21:59:32) XO_Cdr_Vallero: @ CTO: We have what we came for. Leave him be unless information on the computers calls for further questioning.
(21:59:43) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: cross-references the coordinates with the database and slowly shakes her head when she sees the results ::
(22:00:12) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: thinks a moment :: XO: I don't need to let him know that, do I?
(22:00:16) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ :: sits next to the computer pile proudly ::
(22:00:18) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Aye, Captain. :: sets the Computer to work calculating a solution ::
(22:00:44) CO_Capt_Harper: Syvek> :: joins Kuari with the last of the computers, and sends the pile's location up to the TR to beam out ::
(22:01:15) MED_Ens_Morsby: ::fills in medical report after medical report, his mind focused only on filling in the papers with medical data::
(22:01:31) XO_Cdr_Vallero: @ CTO: :: quietly :: Conduct yourself like a Marine, and if he asks what he's being held for, you can't keep that information from him.
(22:03:31) XO_Cdr_Vallero: @ :: after watching the last of the computers being beamed out, stands strategically to be beamed out himself along with the team ::
(22:03:32) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ XO: Aye, sir. :: heads back to his charge, giving necessary commands to his marines along the way ::
(22:04:38) CO_Capt_Harper: BasePeon> :: watches the computers disappear, along with some of the people ::
(22:05:54) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Slipstream solution ready, calculation complete.
(22:05:58) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Over the next several minutes, the computers are all beamed up, followed by all our personnel.
(22:06:47) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *CO* Vallero to Bridge. All are aboard, we're good to go.
(22:06:57) CO_Capt_Harper: NAV: Excellent, stand by.
(22:07:15) CO_Capt_Harper: *XO* Understood, and—good job.
(22:07:45) CO_Capt_Harper: Yellow alert, shields up. :: orders the tactical officer to configure the shield geometry for slipstream flight ::
(22:07:59) CO_Capt_Harper: NAV: Warp speed and prepare for slipstream.
(22:08:13) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: can't help but to feel... excitement about finally finding the admiral and Captain T'Kirr. ::
(22:08:51) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *CO* :: sighs, a small portion of guilt lifted at having finally done something successfully to make up for things ::
(22:09:10) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CTO: :: claps Wolfe on the shoulder :: Good work down there. Make sure your people hear it, too.
(22:09:13) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: breaks orbit and warps away from the rogue planet, engaging the Slipstream drive ::
(22:10:16) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: :: skips off to debrief her team ::
(22:10:28) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: watches as the doors close behind George before turning to Vallero. :: XO: Thank you, sir. Let's go get our people back. To the bridge?
(22:10:37) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The slipstream forms ahead of us.
(22:10:55) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CTO: Yup.
(22:12:06) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Entering tunnel in ten. nine. eight.
(22:12:14) CO_Capt_Harper: :: leaning forward in her seat, but knows there's a decent length of travel time ahead ::
(22:12:41) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Atlantis is smoothly pulled into the slipstream tunnel.
(22:12:52) MED_Ens_Morsby: ::finishes filing what data there was, and uploads it to the ship's medical database::
(22:12:57) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: Bridge: Slipstream flight achieved.
(22:13:25) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: arrives on the Bridge with Wolfe and heads to his seat next to Harper ::
(22:14:04) CO_Capt_Harper: :: nods to Vallero and Wolfe as they enter ::
(22:14:22) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: is somewhat surprised to find how ordinary slipstream feels to her now ::
(22:14:39) CO_Capt_Harper: NAV: ETA?
(22:15:30) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: sits :: CO: I wish we could report the base to Starfleet. Problem is, we don't know which side we'd be reporting it to.
(22:15:51) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: turns to TAC 1, nods to Harper, and assumes his post, verifying that all is as it should be. It's not often he lets Atlantis go to Slipstream without first being at his post. ::
(22:15:58) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: One hundred and eighty-four minutes, Captain. Approximately three hours.
(22:16:20) CO_Capt_Harper: :: deflates a bit back into her seat, having known it would be some time, but not quite that long ::
(22:16:59) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: It gives us time to formulate a plan, at least.
(22:17:29) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: It's likely the planet is under surveillance.
(22:20:00) CO_Capt_Harper: :: considers :: CSO: Relay to the Minuteman and ask them to arrive ahead of us.
(22:21:06) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Exactly.
(22:21:30) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO/CSO: When I accessed their location, I saw a schedule for monthly supply drops. It looks like they're being taken care of.
(22:21:42) CO_Capt_Harper: BasePeon> ::: assumes command once everyone has beamed away and begins directing repairs ::
(22:22:16) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Aye. :: transmits the request to the Minuteman, receives a swift reply :: CO: Minuteman acknowledges, Captain.
(22:23:30) CO_Capt_Harper: Bridge: Then settle in for a very long short flight.
(22:25:02) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: twiddles his fingers, encouraged by the data suggesting Blackthorne and T'Kirr are okay, but one never really knows ::
(22:25:27) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Almost three hours pass, and ahead our arrival, we receive a message from Minuteman.
(22:26:17) CO_Capt_Harper: :: now in the ready room, having passed much of the time in there ::
(22:30:24) CSO_LCdr_Wright: XO: Incoming transmission from the Minuteman, Commander. They report that there are no vessels in orbit at this time. There was a recon satellite in high orbit, but it's been substituted with one that will report all-clear.
(22:31:11) CO_Capt_Harper: :: made a log entry detailing what happened and why ::
(22:31:29) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CSO: :: smiles :: Very good, thank you.
(22:33:18) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *CO* Bridge to Harper. The Minuteman reports there are no ships in the vicinity of the planet, and the satellite in orbit won't report our presence.
(22:34:03) CO_Capt_Harper: *XO* Excellent. On my way. :: gets her paperwork in order, then exits to the bridge ::
(22:34:34) MED_Ens_Morsby: ::Checking over his reports once more, while drinking a mug of tea, outside the Sickbay of course, Morsby's not a total idiot. Just a bit of one::
(22:37:46) CO_Capt_Harper: :: takes her seat :: NAV: ETA?
(22:38:51) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: CO: Slipstream exit in.... forty-seven seconds, Captain.
(22:40:11) CO_Capt_Harper: :: stays on the edge of her seat as the ship exits slipstream ::
(22:40:19) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: Bridge: Exiting slipstream in ten. nine. eight. seven.
(22:40:27) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: eyes glued to screen ::
(22:40:41) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Atlantis pops into normal space.
(22:42:09) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: scans the area as they emerge from Slipstream :: CO: All's quiet here. Nothing on sensors.
(22:42:45) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: Bridge: Normal space achieved. Drift is..... 0.4 AU. :: sounds slightly surprised, if you listen very closely ::
(22:43:30) CO_Capt_Harper: NAV: Very nice, lieutenant. Take us the rest of the way to the planet at warp six and assume standard orbit.
(22:44:16) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: begins to come up with worst-case scenarios and what if they're not there thoughts ::
(22:44:28) CO_Capt_Harper: :: warp six being slightly fast for that distance but she's impatient, dammit ::
(22:44:39) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: turns and nods her thanks :: CO: Aye, Captain. :: makes minor course corrections and zips toward the planet at warp 6 ::
(22:45:49) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Atlantis exits warp after the short flight and a class-M planet is right where it should be.
(22:47:09) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: glides the ship into a standard orbit around it ::
(22:47:35) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: peers at Harper ::
(22:48:19) CO_Capt_Harper: :: lets her lip go from biting it and quietly says :: CSO: Put it on screen and begin scanning for them.
(22:48:36) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks over at Suzuki and wonders if she'll finally have Harper next to her again instead of the unsmiling pilot currently occupying the seat ::
(22:49:30) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: puts the external view up on the screen and begins scanning for human/Betazoid and Vulcan lifesigns ::
(22:50:35) CO_Capt_Harper: :: waits, her rear end barely touching the seat ::
(22:51:01) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: eagerly awaits Wright's report and watches Harper, amused ::
(22:51:42) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: scans local space in case the Minuteman missed anything or in the off chance that anything new appears ::
(22:52:07) CO_Capt_Harper: :: gripping both chair arms tightly ::
(22:52:55) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: sits up when she sees something, and confirms it three times before speaking up :: Self: I found them. CO: I found them! Here... :: the viewscreen focuses on a subtropical island off of a continental coast, far from the pre-warp civilization that inhabits the planet ::
(22:53:19) CO_Capt_Harper: :: bolts to her feet and looks at the island ::
(22:53:50) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Anyone else near them?
(22:53:52) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: grins and watches Harper and Wright, knowing how much this moment means to them ::
(22:54:30) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Both lifesigns are strong and stable! Only non-sapient lifeforms in the vicinity.
(22:54:58) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: tries to get a higher resolution scan ::
(22:55:07) CO_Capt_Harper: :: her face erupts into a relieved smile as she turns from the viewer :: XO: You have the bridge. I am going down there.
(22:55:28) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: stands :: CO: I won't argue with that.
(22:55:46) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: I... offer my assistance.
(22:57:01) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: is also standing, but looks a bit timid ::
(22:57:08) CO_Capt_Harper: :: nods to Wright :: CSO: You are with me. XO: Inform sickbay of the situation.
(22:57:15) CO_Capt_Harper: :: enters the TL ::
(22:57:29) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: nods :: *MED* Bridge to Sickbay.
(22:57:46) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: nods to T'Lira :: SCI: I leave it in your hands. :: rushes onto the TL ::
(22:57:56) CO_Capt_Harper: :: directs the TL to the TR ::
(22:58:19) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: looks over at Wright and lifts an eyebrow slightly before moving over to the Sci/Ops station ::
(22:58:24) MED_Ens_Morsby: *XO*: Sickbay reporting, what is your issue?
(22:58:27) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: so incredibly nervous/excited ::
(22:58:31) CO_Capt_Harper: :: shares an excited look with Wright as they ride :::
(22:58:53) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: clasps Kate's hand quickly but firmly ::
(22:59:08) CO_Capt_Harper: :: squeezes it as the TL arrives ::
(22:59:19) CO_Capt_Harper: :: exits into the TR and steps up onto the pad ::
(22:59:29) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *MED* We've located Admiral Blackthorne and Captain T'Kirr. They appear to be healthy, but we'll of course need a check-up. They should be arriving shortly...stand by to receive them.
(22:59:37) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: practically hops up there in excitement ::
(22:59:56) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: continues running a scan of local space ::
(22:59:58) CO_Capt_Harper: :: rattles off the location to the transporter chief, then :: Energize!
(23:00:47) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: begins thinking through anything Harper may have missed in her excitement, but it really does seem that no one would be expecting them and lying in wait ::
(23:00:55) MED_Ens_Morsby: *XO*:Understood
(23:01:10) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Harper and Wright appear on the beach of a subtropical island, with a standard Starfleet shelter in view, that's been added on to with local materials.
(23:01:32) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: materializes on the surface and looks around, quickly spotting the shelter ::
(23:02:33) Ian: :: hears a transport and figures it's their food drop, but glances out the window ::
(23:02:51) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks at Kate :: Kate: There it is... :: whispering ::
(23:03:12) TKirr: :: looks up from her seat at Ian :: Ian: What is it?
(23:03:13) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: pulls out a tricorder and looks for any local hazards just in case ::
(23:03:33) CO_Capt_Harper: Lexy: Not a bad job, either. :: starts walking toward it and raises her voice :: Admiral! Captain!
(23:03:45) Ian: T'Kirr: Transpor- ::: then hears the voice ::
(23:04:10) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: finding nothing, hurries behind Kate as she approaches the shelter ::
(23:04:28) TKirr: :: grips the arms of her chair and bolts upright, having heard Harper, and looks at Ian with wide eyes ::
(23:04:47) Ian: T'Kirr: That's Harper! :: rushes out the door ::
(23:05:05) TKirr: :: rushes out behind Ian in disbelief ::
(23:05:31) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: feeling a bit out of place, but wants to support Kate... and is completely starstruck when she sees Ian and T'Kirr ::
(23:06:48) Ian: CO: :: confirms what he heard with his own eyes :: Kate!! Alexis!
(23:07:12) TKirr: :: probably looks unusual not in her crisp uniform, but takes in the very familiar sight of Harper and Wright, her past rushing into the present ::
(23:07:29) CO_Capt_Harper: :: rushes up to them and hugs Ian before anything else ::
(23:07:42) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Both: Admiral! Captain! We're so happy to have finally found you both!
(23:08:05) Ian: :: chuckles as he's hugged ::
(23:08:38) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: tears spring to her eyes ::
(23:08:48) CO_Capt_Harper: :: lets the Admiral go, then refrains from hugging T'Kirr but bows her head in greeting to her instead, her eyes leaking a bit ::
(23:09:18) Ian: K&L: You two are a sight for sore eyes. How did you even find us?
(23:09:26) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: lingers a bit behind, knowing this is not her reunion, but swipes tears from her cheeks ::
(23:10:38) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Ian: Well... :: looks at Kate :: Ian: It's a long story, but we're pirates now... :: manages to laugh and cry simultaneously ::
(23:10:59) TKirr: :: doesn't smile, but there's no mistaking the look of surprise and joy on her face. She bows her head back to Harper, and then to Wright ::
(23:11:40) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: surprised, returns the bow to the woman she'd idolized and thought she'd lost forever ::
(23:12:12) CO_Capt_Harper: Ian: That... is an incredibly long and interesting story that I will tell you aboard Atlantis. :: smiles through her moist eyes :: A lot has happened while we thought you to be dead.
(23:12:59) Ian: CO: :: notes the fourth pip on Kate's collar :: So I see, Captain! Lexy: Pirates, you say? Yes, I can tell we have a lot of catching up to do.
(23:13:00) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: laugh/cries again :: Both: You should have seen your funerals, you have no idea how loved you both are.
(23:13:23) Ian: :: shares a look with T'Kirr :: T'Kirr: That could make for some interesting watching.
(23:13:55) TKirr: :: perks an eyebrow :: Ian: Indeed.
(23:14:06) Ian: If not a bit macabre, but few get the chance.
(23:14:21) CO_Capt_Harper: Ian: Are- are you ready to beam up?
(23:14:30) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: nods :: Both: Atlantis is in orbit. Are you ready to come with us?
(23:14:54) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CTO: Major Wolfe. I'm not expecting anyone, but do keep a sharp lookout for anything threatening just in case.
(23:14:57) Ian: Both: We have a few things here that we would like to take with us, but not much. Shall I show you the homestead?
(23:15:18) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks to Kate for decision-making ::
(23:15:31) CO_Capt_Harper: :: chuckles :: Ian: Please do.
(23:15:34) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: XO: Of course. Nothing in orbit at this time.
(23:15:48) TKirr: :: starts thinking through what all she cares to take with them and looks back to the house ::
(23:16:16) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Let Atlantis know that we will be back shortly, plus two!
