(21:16:17) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: in uniform at her station on the Bridge, checking in with Operations crews and running pre-launch diagnostics ::
(21:16:19) CO_CaptHarper: :: in Admiral Blackthorne's office, having a last face-to-face before they depart ::
(21:17:58) TAC_1LT_Randen: :: Freshly shaved, showered and in a crisp new uniform as he enters the bridge. He mans Wolfe's post until his superior can get here. ::
(21:18:36) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: sitting at the helm, eager to give a Sovereign class a spin ::
(21:18:55) AdmBlackthorne_HQ: CO: Like Doug said, Kate, you didn't just fill the chair; you did the job as well as anyone could have asked, and you will again, I know it.
(21:19:02) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::checks back onto the Bridge after some time visiting family and traveling, sporting a new dark(er) blue tinted tan::
(21:19:34) CO_CaptHarper: Thank you, sir. It feels somewhat surreal, after all this time. Especially to be leaving you here. :: chuckles ::
(21:21:42) SEC_LtRaknar: :: In his quarters, he washes down the last of his breakfast with a big old swig of blood wine. The real stuff, from a crate he picked up on Qu'onos, not that replicator swill that the Federation concocts as an unknowing middle finger to his people. Thus braced for the day, he strides out into the hall, greeting the first passing crewman with a sneer. ::
(21:22:38) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Is at his spot at the ENG console, monitoring the systems as he so often does.::
(21:23:00) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: finishes writing a quick note on a PADD, leaving the PADD on her coffee table, which is currently very precariously stacked with books of varying shapes and sizes, before leaving her quarters ::
(21:23:57) AdmBlackthorne_HQ: Well, it really was past the time to step aside and hand over the keys to the next generation. :: sips at a scotch :: After serving with you for twelve years, I'm just damned proud of you.
(21:24:54) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: checking the readouts from all the propulsion-related systems, repeatedly ::
(21:25:14) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: as the ranking officer on the Bridge at the moment, is interrupted frequently with various memos of repair and refit completions, and forms a small stack for Kuari ::
(21:25:37) CO_CaptHarper: Please sir, my ego can only take so much of this. :: grins ::
(21:26:57) AdmBlackthorne_HQ: Fine, fine. :: laughs :: Now, go on, and keep making me—and yourself—proud. Take care of my ship.
(21:27:52) CO_CaptHarper: :: stands, a wry grin spreading across her face at getting to do this :: My ship. Sir. :: confidently strides out of his office ::
(21:27:56) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: trots all fours onto the Bridge from the TL in the back, immediately taking note of everyone there, and heads straight for the center, doing her best to look brave ::
(21:29:10) AdmBlackthorne_HQ: :: wistfully watches her go, knowing Atlantis is about to leave without him for the first time in over a decade, at least without thinking him dead ::
(21:30:18) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks up at smiles warmly at Kuari :: XO: Hello, Commander. Preparations for departure are underway. :: hands the stack of PADDS to her :: XO: Here are all the repair/refit completion memos so far. I'll have status reports ready for you very soon, Sir..
(21:32:23) SEC_LtRaknar: :: Strides silently into security a few minutes later, and stalks his way over to the duty roster for the day. ::
(21:33:23) CO_CaptHarper: :: walking through HQ toward the exit, so she can get past the security perimeter to beam up ::
(21:33:53) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: the TL deposits her neatly on the bridge and she heads for her duty station, getting to work as quickly as possible ::
(21:34:36) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::is busy reading through all of the sickbay reports that happened while she was away, swiping off each one as she skims through it::
(21:35:30) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CdorTKirr_HQ> :: catches sight of Harper as she exits Blackthorne's office and approaches her :: CO: It's time, is it not?
(21:36:04) CO_CaptHarper: :: stops and smiles at T'Kirr :: Yes ma'am, it is.
(21:36:16) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: still holding out the stack of PADDs to Kuari :: XO: So, first day as XO... pretty exciting, huh?
(21:37:48) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: turns to Wright and sits before her to take the PADDs :: CSO: Thank you. And yes... :: smiles subtly :: It is exciting. Waiting to get going is difficult!
(21:38:37) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: confident that the readings are all perfect and staying that way, he looks around the rest of the bridge, glad to see it busy and occupied ::
(21:38:46) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CdorTKirr_HQ> :: nods curtly :: CO: You will do well. I'm...sure Ian told you to take care of his ship.
(21:39:24) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Turns around in his seat, just to watch and admire everyone for a moment, happy for their return.::
(21:39:38) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: leans over to speak privately :: XO: If there's anything I can do to support you or help you be most successful, please let me know, okay?
(21:40:28) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CSO: smiles again, a more genuine one reserved for a friend :: Thanks, I appreciate it!
(21:40:59) CO_CaptHarper: T'Kirr: :: laughs :: Thank you, and of course he did. I gave the customary reply of, "my ship," as well. Listen...
(21:41:26) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: grins broadly :: XO: I think this is going to be fun.
(21:41:53) CO_CaptHarper: T'Kirr: I just wanted to tell you what an inspiration you have been to the crew. We will miss having you aboard to look up to, though we still will, and I hope you and the Admiral enjoy life here.
(21:43:58) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CdorTKirr_HQ> :: momentarily breaks composure, just enough to look...wistful? :: CO: Thank you. I will...miss being aboard. It has been many years since I have served anywhere else, but I'm sure Kuari will be just as capable as I have been.
(21:44:39) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: gives Kuari a wink before turning back to her console, acknowledging the instructions for securing departure clearance and busily immersing herself back in her work ::
(21:44:42) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: All: It is quite lovely to see everyone so alive with enthusiasm for adventures into the unknown. ::Smiles.::
(21:45:46) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: quietly but cheerfully and without looking up :: ENG: If we weren't, I'd say that we were in the wrong line of work!
(21:46:14) CO_CaptHarper: T'Kirr: I think she will do wonderfully. Please, stay in touch outside of sending us assignments, yes?
(21:46:26) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: is still grinning at Wright while she turns to the XO chair. The base of the chair looks a lot like what was there before, but it now has no back to it. Expecting this, as Engineers tested it on her on Earth, she moves behind it to try it out. She leans her elbows on the seat and settles her hindquarters on the floor behind it. Finding it satisfactory, she steals a glance at Wright before beginning to review the PADDs ::
(21:47:44) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: sends a little text note to Kuari's chair-mounted console to test that it performs in a satisfactory way with her exotic anatomy ::
(21:48:08) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CdorTKirr_HQ> :: bows her head in affirmation :: CO: I intend to. It has been an honor serving with you. That service will continue, just in a different capacity.
(21:48:35) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: follows it with some live data from the scanners and other various sorts of things she would normally send to the XO ::
(21:50:04) CO_CaptHarper: :: bows her head as well, in respect to the Vulcan mannerism :: T'Kirr: Thank you. It has indeed been an honor, ma'am, and it will continue to be one. Now, if I may... I have a ship to catch. I would hate for them to leave without me.
(21:50:54) CSO_LCdr_Wright: XO: I've sent some test data to your console, Commander Kuari, when you have a moment, please take a look and let me know if there are any problems. No rush. :: flashes a smile and turns back to her work ::
(21:51:31) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CdorTKirr_HQ> :: raises her hand in the Vulcan gesture :: CO: Live long and prosper, Captain Harper.
(21:52:29) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: perks an ear at the console beep. Shifting forward so the chair supports her belly, she sets the PADDs down on the floor and taps at the console. Smiling and stealing another glance at Wright, she checks the following messages ::
(21:52:58) CO_CaptHarper: :: returns the Vulcan salute, and replies in Vulcan :: T'Kirr: Peace and long life, Commodore T'Kirr. :: turns and walks away, that having made her more emotional than the Admiral did ::
(21:54:04) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CdorTKirr_HQ> :: watches Harper go, then prompts Blackthorne's door ::
(21:54:19) AdmBlackthorne_HQ: Come in.
(21:54:26) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CdorTKirr_HQ> :: enters ::
(21:54:47) CO_CaptHarper: :: exits the HQ building and the security perimeter, then takes a deep breath as she eyes the Golden Gate Bridge ::
(21:55:06) AdmBlackthorne_HQ: T'Kirr: I sensed a bit of wistfulness from you... did you catch Kate on the way out?
(21:55:46) CO_CaptHarper: :: smiles widely, then taps her commbadge :: *Atlantis* Harper to Atlantis. One to beam up.
(21:55:53) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: takes probably longer than necessary to review Wright's data, just to make sure she's reading it right :: CSO: Looks good, Alexis.
(21:56:18) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CdorTKirr_HQ> :: stands in place once the doors swish shut :: Blackthorne: I did.
(21:56:39) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: turns from the helm :: XO: Commander, all propulsion systems are reading nominal and standing by for departure.
(21:57:08) AdmBlackthorne_HQ: T'Kirr: They're still up there, you know. It's not too late. :: looks up at the ceiling ::
(21:57:12) CSO_LCdr_Wright: XO: Great! I'll start sending the reports as soon as they come in. :: grins at that familiar voice :: *CO* Acknowledged, Captain Harper, stand by for transport. :: waits a few beats and energizes ::
(21:57:36) CO_CaptHarper: :: arrives in the Atlantis TR, and enters the turbolift :: Bridge.
(21:57:56) CSO_LCdr_Wright: XO: Captain Harper is safely aboard.
(21:58:14) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CdorTKirr_HQ> :: perks an eyebrow :: Blackthorne: Are you suggesting I say goodbye, or that we take back the ship?
(21:59:18) AdmBlackthorne_HQ: T'Kirr: Since we've said our goodbyes, the latter. But no, like I said to Kate, it's time to step aside and let the next generation shine.
(21:59:41) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks up at Wright :: CSO: Thank you. Not long now, then. :: notices her heart rate increases and attempts to busy herself at her console ::
(22:00:09) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CdorTKirr_HQ> :: bows her head in agreement :: Blackthorne: This...uncomfortable feeling will pass.
(22:00:51) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: beaming with excitement, not picking up on any anxiety Kuari might be feeling :: XO: I'm glad to have had a chance to be home, but I can't wait to get back out into the black!
(22:01:10) CO_CaptHarper: :: strides purposefully onto the active bridge for the first time since taking command again, hair of course in the Captainly updo :: XO: Report, Commander Kuari. :: stops in front of her chair and offers a smile ::
(22:02:09) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: gives Kate a professional nod of acknowledgement and sends unprofessional heart and kissy-face emojis to her console ::
(22:04:05) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Strides off the lift down from the second level which hosts his office and into engineering proper. He's nursing an extra strong raktajino this morning, on account of the late night he was talked into as a "Last hurrah" back on Vesta, and the red eye shuttle he caught back afterward. ::
(22:04:14) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: sits back respectfully on the low cushion on the floor, back from the backless chair, her gaze only slightly upward at Harper :: CO: Captain. The ship is ready for departure, all crew aboard. :: gives her a small smile, despite her nervousness ::
(22:05:00) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: finishes forwarding the very latest status reports to Kuari, but they essentially echo what she just said ::
(22:05:09) CO_CaptHarper: :: rests her hands on her hips and turns to Wright, still smiling :: CSO: Do we have departure clearance, Commander?
(22:05:26) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::looks up at the newly-minted Captain, giving her a friendly nod, waiting with anticipation as the ship preps for departure::
(22:05:31) AdmBlackthorne_HQ: T'Kirr: It will, yes, in time. And Earth is sure as hell a better place to settle down than our exile.
(22:05:55) CEO_LtQuinn: Okay, people! Departure time is fast approaching, and I mean to continue the tradition of responding with the diplomatic equivalent of "About damn time" when the call comes down! Bring containment systems online!
(22:06:03) CO_CaptHarper: :: returns Tailor's nod :: MED: Doctor.
(22:06:06) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: They're only pending your orders with regard to timing, Captain.
(22:06:22) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: It is time, then.
(22:06:39) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CdorTKirr_HQ> Blackthorne: Indeed. It does not even compare.
(22:07:24) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: taps :: CO: Departure clearance requested and received, with a wish for our safe travels, Captain. We can depart on your order.
(22:07:26) CO_CaptHarper: :: takes the new center seat and wiggles around, finding it far more comfortable than before, since they replaced it with one molded to her bottom from laser scans ::
(22:07:45) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Nods briskly when told, as expected, that containment is going strong. :: Okay, then! Commence anti-matter feed. Just 10% until we get word they're switching off station power.
(22:07:59) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Very well. Transfer to internal power.
(22:08:22) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: taps :: CO: Transfer to internal power complete.
(22:08:47) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: Clear all moorings and push back. :: takes note of the new helmsman in her old seat ::
(22:09:16) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: cuts the ship loose and backs out of their parking spot :: Moorings clear, ma'am.
(22:09:37) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: Thrusters to spacedoors, and plot a slipstream solution to Risa.
(22:09:44) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Gets the beep on his console, and shaked his head. Apparently raring to go, plus alcohol equals just in time not to embarrass yourself. :: I wonder what that equation would look like.
(22:09:44) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: glances up at the rather sultry male voice from the helm ::
(22:10:24) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Clears his throat and raises his voice back to full. :: Okay, dial it up! You just know they're going to strain the engines up there in some new and creative way on the way out!
(22:10:45) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: nudges Atlantis toward the spacedoors and inputs Risa as the destination into the slipstream computer ::
(22:11:19) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Jaw drops as the correction comes in. :: What do you mean they're sticking to thrusters? I know it's the regulation! I just...huh.
(22:12:01) CO_CaptHarper: :: watches the ship glide perfectly through the doors :: NAV: Well done. Warp one.
(22:12:45) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: Yes ma'am, warp one. :: engages warp drive as the slipstream computer dings ::
(22:12:55) AdmBlackthorne_HQ: :: gets the notification he asked for that Atlantis has departed :: T'Kirr: And that's it. They're gone, without us.
(22:13:08) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Slipstream solution plotted and ready.
(22:13:18) CO_CaptHarper: XO: Make the ship ready for slipstream flight.
(22:14:40) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CdorTKirr_HQ> :: breathes deeply with the finality of it :: Blackthorne: To new adventures.
(22:16:20) AdmBlackthorne_HQ: T'Kirr: :: raises his glass :: To new adventures indeed! In paperwork, at least, and moving ships around. But hey, how about that night sky at our new house? The stars are still right there.
(22:18:01) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: has been waiting for this, knowing it's coming, and studied up :: TAC: Yellow alert, configure shield geometry for slipstream flight.
(22:18:48) SEC_LtRaknar: :: Takes up his guard station on deck six, at the checkpoint by Science Lab two, and mutters to himself as usual. :: Bring on the formatting issues and the insufficient academic peer review. Another exciting day with Starfleet.
(22:20:45) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CdorTKirr_HQ> Blackthorne: It is beautiful. And they stay in mostly the same arrangement from our view, every night, unlike aboard Atlantis. One could get used to it.
(22:23:14) TAC_1LT_Randen: :: Goes to work on his consle as he verbally confirms. :: XO: Now at Yellow Alert. Configuring shield geometry for slipstream slight.
(22:25:01) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Takes a seat by the monitoring station, sips his raktajino, and begins watching the slipstream field readouts. As complex as it is, he's been through this so many times he can reliably eyeball it and get some advance warning if he needs to abort the flight prematurely. ::
(22:26:43) OPS_Ens_Velekh: ::Hums to self as he steps in the turbo lift, clutching his new roommate's forgotten padd and yawning since his shift doesn't start for another hour:: Deck six, please. ::Rides down and exits the lift, walking towards science lab 2 and noticing a guard outside::
(22:26:52) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: sensing her part done, wills herself to relax her upper half back down onto her chair, and watches the preparations happen, glancing at her console and back to the Bridge crew ::
(22:27:12) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: Engage slipstream drive.
(22:27:33) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: having made the requisite shipwide announcement ::
(22:27:45) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: As you wish, Capitan. :: engages the slipstream drive :: Slipstream flight in one minute.
(22:28:51) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: Slipstream in ten, nine, eight....
(22:29:10) SEC_LtRaknar: :: Meets the Caitian's gaze, obliging him with a very Klingon grunt to match the armor. :: Ensign.
(22:29:12) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The slipstream forms ahead of us, and Atlantis is pulled in, smoother than ever thanks to the upgrades.
(22:30:06) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::is endlessly fascinated by the swirly patterns on the viewscreen as the ship is pulled into slipstream::
(22:30:12) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: smiles with delight at having gotten to do that :: CO: Slipstream achieved, all readings nominal. Flight time to Risa is just under twenty minutes.
(22:31:04) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: sends a message ahead to Risa requesting orbital clearance ::
(22:31:27) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: Thank you, lieutenant. CSO: Commander Wright, coordinate our impending arrival with Risa Control.
(22:31:52) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Coordination already underway, Captain.
(22:32:27) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: small self-satisfied smile, loves beating the CO to orders, regardless of who it is ::
(22:32:34) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Whistles. :: Gotta admit, they're really figuring out what they're doing with this stuff back at HQ. My resume might not look so amazing in a year or so.
(22:32:39) OPS_Ens_Velekh: ::nods head and bows slightly, the etiquette instilled by his mother:: Lieutenant... ::Hesitates:: Lt.Rakner, correct? I apologise, I'm am still trying to memorise names...
(22:32:51) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Excellent.
(22:32:53) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: forwards post-slipstream status reports to Kuari's console ::
(22:33:32) CO_CaptHarper: SCI: Lt T'Lira, will you join me in the ready room? XO: Commander Kuari, you have the bridge. :: smiles in encouragement, the first time she's gotten to say that ::
(22:34:03) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: casts a curious glance at Kate and T'Lira, then shrugs and continues coordinating arrival ::
(22:34:10) CO_CaptHarper: :: exits into the ready room and finds a package waiting on her desk ::
(22:34:36) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: nods and walks over the front of the seat, sitting down in front of the CO chair and stares straight ahead ::
(22:34:49) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: blinks, but rises and heads for the ready room, wondering if she accidentally broke some sort of regulation or something with her latest series of experiments ::
(22:35:06) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: thinks to herself :: My girlfriend and my subordinate officer... nobody tells me anything,
(22:35:08) CO_CaptHarper: :: unwraps it to find a bottle of spiced rum, with a note that reads, "Welcome to next time. Happy trails, Firefly. -Doug" ::
(22:35:39) SEC_LtRaknar: :: His expression remains as bored and neutral as it typically does, despite the error. :: OPS: Rak'NAR. The apostraphe is silent.
(22:36:13) CO_CaptHarper: :: smiles, remembering the time, years ago, that McKnight was in command and she asked for spiced rum in this room, and he'd answered next time since there wasn't any, and quietly says :: Damn, Doug, what a memory. Thank you.
(22:37:00) CO_CaptHarper: :: gingerly places the bottle on the bar next to the Don Julio Anejo the Admiral gave her ::
(22:38:23) CO_CaptHarper: :: then sits down behind the desk, awaiting T'Lira ::
(22:38:59) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: steps into the ready room almost hesitantly, going over her experiments in her mind and coming up with Zero Regulations Broken ::
(22:39:42) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: stares at the main viewer, waiting for something to happen ::
(22:39:59) CO_CaptHarper: :: offers a welcoming smile :: SCI: Lieutenant, please, have a seat.
(22:40:21) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: sits, still trying to think of a reason she's here. ::
(22:41:01) OPS_Ens_Velekh: ::Runs paw through his curls, mentally berating himself:: SEC: Apologies, Rak'Nar. ::Dips head again:: You haven't seen <Ensign Genla> pass through here? I believe he is assigned to Lab 2, but he left his Padd in our quarters.
(22:41:29) CO_CaptHarper: SCI: I shall get right to the point. I obviously can not continue flying in the fighter wing while commanding this ship, and I would like for you to replace me as CAG.
(22:42:16) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: that was certainly not what she was expecting at all :: CO: I... I would be honored, Captain.
(22:42:56) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: remembers that thing Kate had mentioned :: Self: Oh, it's probably that. :: sheepish ::
(22:43:29) CO_CaptHarper: SCI: Wonderful! I know it will be in good hands. I mean, yes, saving my ass goes a long way, but you have skill, T'Lira, and you are respected.
(22:44:13) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: finds that rather surprising, but that's the self-doubting side of her speaking and that side is promptly shoved deep down where it belongs :: CO: I will endeavour to not fail you, Captain.
(22:45:31) CO_CaptHarper: SCI: I know you will, lieutenant. Encourage that camaraderie among the Wing and those pilots will fly through hell for you, and more importantly, for each other.
(22:46:00) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: nods :: CO: I will certainly keep that in mind, sir.
(22:46:43) CO_CaptHarper: SCI: Now, I expect a state of the Wing report before any leave on Risa. Believe me, I know that it is in a depleted state, but do your best.
(22:47:00) SCI_Lt_TLira: CO: Yes, sir.
(22:47:42) CO_CaptHarper: SCI: Also, in case you did not know, our new helmsman is also certified on the Mustang and has been added to the Wing. Dismissed.
(22:48:16) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: stands and nods :: CO: I will have the report to you tomorrow.
(22:48:52) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: XO: Exiting slipstream in one minute, ma'am.
(22:49:02) SEC_LtRaknar: :: Shrugs :: OPS: It is of little consequence. Ensign Genla is indeed assigned to Science Lab 2. You may also try the door marked Auxiliary Storage, second junction on the right. At the still they think nobody knows about.
(22:49:30) CO_CaptHarper: :: stands to walk back out to the bridge, leaving a glance at the thoughtful gift from McKnight :: SCI: I look forward to it.
(22:49:36) XO_LCdr_Kuari: NAV: Thank you, Lieutenant.
(22:50:05) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: returns to her station and takes a moment to rearrange her lists of tasks to accomplish. Perhaps dinner tonight will be replicated, after all... ::
(22:50:21) CO_CaptHarper: :: returns to the bridge ::
(22:50:41) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: swivels her head to Harper :: CO: Arriving at Risa, Captain.
(22:51:03) CO_CaptHarper: :: takes her seat and wiggles around again, amazed at how comfortable it is :: XO: Thank you, Commander.
(22:51:18) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Exiting slipstream in ten, nine, eight...
(22:51:41) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Atlantis exits slipstream in the Risa system.
(22:51:46) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: moves away before Harper can sit down moves back to her seat ::
(22:52:22) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Normal space achieved... the drift is 2.35 AU.
(22:52:40) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: Well done. Take us on in to Risa with the approach given by Risa Control.
(22:53:03) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: sends the approach vector to the helm ::
(22:53:27) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: gets the vector and turns to Wright :: CSO: Thank you, Commander.
(22:53:42) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: puts Atlantis on the prescribed course and speed ::
(22:54:05) OPS_Ens_Velekh: ::Mind blanches at the mention of a still in a storage room, before he regains composure and tips his head, ears twitching:: SEC: Thank you, Lieutenant. ::Steps into lab to check, before exiting still clutching the pad and glancing towards the storage room::
(22:54:29) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: nods graciously to Navarro, with a faint twist to the corner of her lips ::
(22:55:02) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Put Risa on screen as soon as we are in range.
(22:55:33) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: thinks Kate must be anxious to see her homeworld, and puts it up as soon as she is able ::
(22:55:51) CO_CaptHarper: :: smiles as her homeworld comes up on the screen, this time, with no threat of martial law being imposed :
