(21:22:23) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: stands at TAC1, prepping for launch, checking to make sure the Marines are all aboard and ready for departure. ::
(21:22:41) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: walks back on to the bridge from the ready room ::
(21:22:51) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Status report, Captain? Are we ready to depart?
(21:23:22) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::is busy tidying up sickbay after the multitude of patients has left. Even the marine who was injured is now back on duty..::
(21:23:38) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: on the Bridge at her usual place, reading the latest ready reports from all departments :: CO: Yes, all are aboard and ready to depart.
(21:24:02) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> A hail comes in from Refuge.
(21:24:09) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Excellent, thank you.
(21:24:56) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Incoming transmission from Refuge, sir.
(21:25:29) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CTO: On screen.
(21:25:41) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: puts the transmission on the viewer ::
(21:27:25) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: VenyaKashar> :: appears on the screen in her new office, with the seismic dampener in it, and offers a smile ::: Ian! Please allow me to extend my congratulations one more time on your success with our lovely Queen. She was, shall I say, almost uncharacteristically accomodating.
(21:27:31) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::thinking she probably should finish up the patient reports. she's up to, like.. 20 out of fifty. this is going to take a while..::
(21:28:15) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Venya: I'm just glad we could all see the common goal in this situation. Thanks again for arranging that.
(21:29:00) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: VenyaKashar> Well, your help has been invaluable over the years; it was the least I could do! Thank you again, and rest assured that the former slaves are already well on their way to new lives of freedom, in the Free Fleets.
(21:29:43) TAC_1LT_Randen: :: Mans the TAC2 console, also preparring for the launch. Keeps an eye on the scanner readouts. ::
(21:29:49) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Venya: Our pleasure. We'll be in touch soon.
(21:30:05) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: VenyaKashar> Looking forward to it! Ta! :: cuts the comm ::
(21:30:32) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: keeps an eye on the sensors at Sci/Ops, making sure nothing is amiss ::
(21:30:59) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: Right. Moving right along...
(21:31:27) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Captain Harper, plot a slipstream solution for these coordinates. :: reaches down to the center seat's chair arm and sends them to her ::
(21:32:20) NAV_Capt_Harper: :: looks over the coordinates :: CO: Admiral, these are on the border of the Klingon neutral zone.
(21:32:43) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: I'm aware. Proceed.
(21:33:01) NAV_Capt_Harper: :: enters them into the computer and goes over the slipstream drive's readings ::
(21:33:22) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: glances from Harper to Blackthorne ::
(21:33:42) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::kind of misses the slaves.. she enjoyed having the children around. Report number twenty three... done.::
(21:34:19) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: nods reassuringly to T'Kirr, projecting confidence :
(21:35:09) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: passes on that confidence to anyone who may be looking at them questioningly ::
(21:35:36) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::...even if some of them did find the hyposprays. reminds herself to lock down the hypospray cabinet after she's done with the next report..::
(21:35:56) NAV_Capt_Harper: :: considers the situation, and wonders if the Admiral has the Klingons on board to support them... if so, that would be big ::
(21:37:16) NAV_Capt_Harper: :: the computer beeps at her :: CO: Slipstream solution complete, Admiral.
(21:38:09) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: Make the ship ready for slipstream flight.
(21:40:16) XO_Capt_TKirr: CTO: Yellow alert, configure shield geometry for slipstream.
(21:40:30) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: XO: Going to Yellow Alert, and configuring shield geometry for slipstream flight. :: does as she says ::
(21:42:51) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Warp one, engage slipstream.
(21:43:03) NAV_Capt_Harper: CO: Aye sir, going to warp one, stand by for slipstream.
(21:43:50) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Atlantis warps away from Refuge.
(21:44:10) NAV_Capt_Harper: :: engages the slipstream drive :: All: Entering slipstream in one minute.
(21:46:06) NAV_Capt_Harper: All: Five, four, three...
(21:46:18) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Atlantis is smoothly pulled into the slipstream.
(21:46:45) NAV_Capt_Harper: CO: Slipstream flight achieved, all readings nominal.
(21:46:56) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::barely feels a shift as slipstream is activated.. a medcart wobbles slightly::
(21:47:40) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: monitors Atlantis' readings as she enters slipstream from her mini console ::
(21:47:41) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: ETA?
(21:47:58) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks around the bridge and then over to Randen before checking up on his systems on his console. ::
(21:48:17) NAV_Capt_Harper: CO: Twenty-five hours, thirty-four minutes.
(21:49:56) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::finishes report number twenty-five, sends the first batch over to Doc Tav's office. Stands up and stretches, grabs a raktajino::
(21:50:06) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: All: Settle in for a long flight, then.
(21:51:06) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: settles in, finding something to read ::
(21:51:57) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::..and remembers to lock down the hypospray cabinet, because you never know when there's gonna be the next batch of wandering children..::
(21:54:51) AUX_LCdr_Tav: :: is close enough to his office to hear the messaging system chirp. With nothing pressing in Sickbay, he heads toward his office and goes to see who is sending him what ::
(21:56:31) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> An uneventful day passes...
(21:56:56) SEC_Cpt_Kuari: :: preparing to resume duty for the first time since her last mission, she trots on all fours into Sickbay for her last checkup and medical clearance ::
(21:57:49) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: in the ready room, brushing up on Klingon "etiquette" ::
(21:58:44) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::looks up as the Rucara trots in..:: SEC: Oh, Hello. ::steps to a console to look at the appointment roster for the day:: You must be Kuari. Come in.. sit down.
(21:58:45) NAV_Capt_Harper: XO: We will be arriving in a few minutes, Captain.
(21:59:00) XO_Capt_TKirr: NAV: Thank you.
(21:59:34) XO_Capt_TKirr: *CO* Bridge to Blackthorne. We will be arriving in a few minutes.
(22:00:35) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: *XO* On my way.
(22:01:58) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: clears his throat, having a bunch of phlegm from the Klingon words ::
(22:02:46) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: then strides out onto the bridge ::
(22:02:57) SEC_Cpt_Kuari: :: hops up deftly onto a biobed and lies down on her belly, a habit of hers so that medical personnel can reach all of her easier :: MED: Hello. We haven't met before. Are you new?
(22:03:18) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: steps off the turbolift and back to his station after some rack time and calesthenics witih the Marines in the armory. Invigorated to start his day, he crosspumps his arms a few times as he stops at TAC1 ::
(22:03:57) NAV_Capt_Harper: CO: Exiting slipstream in one minute, Admiral.
(22:04:25) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: Understood. CTO: Maintain yellow alert when we return to normal space.
(22:04:52) MED_Ens_Tailor: SEC: ::nods:: Yes, relatively speaking. I've been here since we left Vinland. I'm Dr. Tailor. It's wonderful to meet you. ::smiles, extends a hand::
(22:05:18) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Maintain Yellow Alert, aye.
(22:05:59) NAV_Capt_Harper: All: Normal space in five, four, three....
(22:06:38) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> Atlantis pops out into interstellar space, nothing nearby except the imaginary wall in space representing the Neutral Zone.
(22:07:28) NAV_Capt_Harper: CO: Normal space achieved. Drift... 0.43 AU.
(22:07:30) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: prepares to scan as soon as they are out of Slipstream ::
(22:07:47) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: CTO: Any ships on sensors?
(22:08:30) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: continues scanning a moment before answering, not seeing anything... He continues looking another moment to make sure. :: CO: Nothing on sensors, sir.
(22:08:59) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: checks the time on his chair arm :: He's here, I'll bet.
(22:09:42) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: sits down and leans back ::
(22:11:05) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: NAV: All stop.
(22:11:42) NAV_Capt_Harper: CO: Aye sir, all stop. :: Brings Atlantis to a stop, or a stop as relative to anything else nearby ::
(22:13:29) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: SCI: Hailing frequencies.
(22:13:52) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: taps the required buttons :: CO: Hailing frequencies open.
(22:15:02) SEC_Cpt_Kuari: :: leans on one elbow to extend a paw to meet Tailor's shake :: MED: Good to meet you, too! I'm just getting clearance to return to duty.
(22:16:35) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: stands :: *Comm* This is Vice Admiral Blackthorne of the USS Atlantis. We come seeking House MaqeS! Show yourselves!
(22:17:59) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: stands and waits, almost hearing crickets ::
(22:18:09) MED_Ens_Tailor: SEC: Allrighty. ::pulls up Kuari's latest medical files on the biobed console:: So, I see you were in the battle on the station. No major injuries.. but let's give you a few scans to make sure everything's normal. ::punches up a series of basic tests::
(22:19:05) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: stands aftter Blackthorne does, choosing to cross her hands behind her and remain just behind Blackthorne's right ::
(22:19:51) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: looks at T'Kirr, then the main viewer showing nothing but distant stars ::
(22:22:53) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: blinks blankly back at Blackthorne ::
(22:23:28) MED_Ens_Tailor: SEC: Just some slight inflammation and stress in your wing muscles, but no other physical problems. You look to be in good health. Do you have anything that you'd like to talk about before you go back on duty?
(22:23:44) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: He's here. Just wants us to know who's in charge.
(22:25:32) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> A Vor'cha-class attack cruiser decloaks off our port bow, clearly visible on the main viewer.
(22:25:54) SEC_Cpt_Kuari: :: frowns in thought and goes a bit cross-eyed as she follows the scanner with her nose, then shakes her head :: MED: Nothing specific. I do feel ready to resume duty, though.
(22:26:48) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: feels a slight thrill as the Klingon ship distorts silently into view ::
(22:27:19) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> A hail comes in from the Vor'cha.
(22:27:44) MED_Ens_Tailor: SEC: Well, I can't see any reason why you shouldn't.. I'll go ahead and clear you for duty. I'll let the Admiral know. ::smiles::
(22:27:48) SCI_Lt_TLira: CO: Sir, we're being hailed. :: looks back ::
(22:27:54) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: SCI: On screen.
(22:28:03) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: puts the transmission on the screen ::
(22:28:16) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: squares up with the viewer as a Klingon commander appears on the screen ::
(22:28:46) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: MaqeS> *CO* Blackthorne. I had my doubts as to whether you would actually come.
(22:28:56) SEC_Cpt_Kuari: :: grins, displaying her long rows of pointy teeth :: MED: Thanks!
(22:29:47) MED_Ens_Tailor: SEC: You're welcome ::taps away on the console, adding 'cleared for duty' on her report:: Please feel free to come back if you need anything.
(22:30:55) SEC_Cpt_Kuari: :: takes Tailor's words to indicate they were finished and hops down off the bed :: MED: I appreciate it. Until we meet again.
(22:31:41) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: *MaqeS* If you and your house have reviewed the information I sent, then I'm certain you understand why I am.
(22:33:17) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: regards the Klingon on screen, subconsciously stiffening a little to mirror a Klingon warrior's posture, and listens ::
(22:33:50) MED_Ens_Tailor: SEC: ::smiles:: You're welcome. Until next time..
(22:34:04) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: MaqeS> We would not back down from a belligerent Federation on our border.
(22:34:30) SEC_Cpt_Kuari: :: with nothing else to hold her in Sickbay, turns and trots out, eager to report to Wolfe and resume duty ::
(22:34:47) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: *MaqeS* Of course you wouldn't. But you must acknowledge that the years of peace between our people have been prosperous. It would be a shame for that to end.
(22:34:51) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::sends the freshly cleared Rucara's report to the appropriate senior officers..::
(22:37:16) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: MaqeS> Perhaps. Regardless, we will consider your proposal, and will honor our agreement to escort you to Qo'noS.
(22:39:12) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: *MaqeS* Thank you. Transmit the course you wish us to take and we'll follow.
(22:39:22) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: MaqeS> Stand by. Out. :: cuts the comm ::
(22:40:04) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: glad that's over with, he sits down ::
(22:42:00) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: sits as well, looking to Blackthorne ::
(22:42:17) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: XO: That went about as well as I could have expected.
(22:42:35) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: ACTION> A transmission comes in, detailing a course and speed, with instructions.
(22:43:22) SEC_Cpt_Kuari: :: enters the Bridge from the rear TL, takes in the state of the Bridge, then trots over to Wolfe's station ::
(22:43:39) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: notes the message as it pops up on the board :: CO: Course instructions have been received, sir. I'm sending them to the helm now.
(22:44:09) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: SCI: Thank you, Lieutenant.
(22:44:27) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::hums as she preps the biobed station for the next patient. Considering the last few incidents, isn't going to rule out sickbay being busy again soon::
(22:44:39) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: steps back to the side to face Kuari :: SEC: Captain.
(22:46:09) NAV_Capt_Harper: :: feeds the course and speed into the helm :: CO: Ready to depart.
(22:46:51) SEC_Cpt_Kuari: :: sits down in front of Wolfe, her head only at about four feet high, looks up to Wolfe and does her best gargoyle-at-attention pose :: CTO: Medically cleared and reporting to resume duties, sir.
(22:47:21) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks Kuari up and down :: SEC: And you're ready?
(22:47:28) CO_VAdmBlackthorne: :: eyes the viewer and sees the Vor'cha warp away :: NAV: Follow that Klingon.
(22:47:52) NAV_Capt_Harper: CO: Aye sir. :: engages the warp drive, sending Atlantis into Klingon space ::
(22:48:05) SEC_Cpt_Kuari: :: swiftly nods :: CTO: I am, sir.
(22:50:26) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: nods his consent :: SEC: Very well. Let the record show you are reinstated and may return to your duties. :: checks something on his console as they take off to follow the MaqeS, then turns back to Kuari to nod once again ::
