(21:21:07) CO_CaptHarper: :: enters the bridge from her ready room, having delivered more information to Admiral Blackthorne ::
(21:21:35) CO_CaptHarper: XO: Commander Kuari, I think it time that we quit this place. Are we ready to depart?
(21:22:00) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: has just returned to the bridge from the Armory, and takes over final tactical preparations for departure ::
(21:23:50) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::things are under control in sickbay so Tailor decides to check in on the Bridge.. swishes through the turbolift doors and takes her station::
(21:24:00) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: rests her belly on her Bridge chair base and studies the console in front of her :: CO: We are. Investigations are ongoing, but no one needs to remain here to continue their work. :: looks up at Harper ::
(21:25:13) CO_CaptHarper: XO: Thank you, Commander. I think that we will deliver our passengers to Starbase Vinland. Perhaps when we leave this time, we will not have to steal the ship.
(21:25:13) MED2_Ens_Velekh: ::Finishes setting the broken wrist of his second-to-last patient waiting in sickbay, his fur completely ruffled and a dried patch of blood still on his forehead::
(21:26:08) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks out again at the debris field on sensors, a sour taste in her mouth ::
(21:26:24) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: overhears the destination and begins to plot a course and slipstream solution ::
(21:26:46) CO_CaptHarper: :: sits down lightly in the center seat, not leaning back ::
(21:27:01) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: nods ::
(21:27:37) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Course to Vinland laid in, slipstream solution in progress, Captain.
(21:28:29) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::looks up; happy to going back to Vinland, it was her last posting before she joined Atlantis::
(21:29:03) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: Warp one, stand by for slipstream.
(21:29:12) CO_CaptHarper: XO: Make the ship ready for slipstream flight.
(21:29:24) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: in a glum moment, wishes they were going somewhere with fewer negative memories on top of this one ::
(21:29:33) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: begins prepping the shield geometry for the command that he knows is coming ::
(21:29:35) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Warp one, yes ma'am. :: engages warp drive ::
(21:29:43) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Shipwide* All hands, prepare for slipstream flight.
(21:29:57) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Atlantis departs the scene of the tragic battle.
(21:30:14) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: in Science Lab One, looking over a few things, when the announcement comes over the shipwide channel, so naturally braces ::
(21:30:20) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Is quietly at his station, reading something esoteric, and pondering some cosmically mundane question, and equating recent circumstances to a past adventure. Business as usual.::
(21:31:27) TAC2_2Lt_Sykes: :: Maintains post at second Tactical station, braces for slipstream::
(21:32:04) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: pokes at her console, looking for something to do to banish this morose mood she's in ::
(21:32:12) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks to Wolfe, who preemptively nods to her :: CO: Ready for slipstream flight.
(21:32:35) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: is used to smooth transition to slipstream flight and doesn't brace. Also, when Kuari looks at him, he hits the final button. ::
(21:32:49) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: the computer dings, he looks back and nods at the Captain ::
(21:32:55) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: Activate slipstream.
(21:33:08) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Slipstream, aye. :: engages :: One minute.
(21:33:29) MED2_Ens_Velekh: ::Is a bit shaky after entering the slipstream, still not completely used to space travel:: Self: One more patient to go, then I can take time to breath.
(21:33:50) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The slipstream begins to form on the viewscreen ahead.
(21:34:36) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Slipstream in ten, nine, eight...
(21:34:49) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Atlantis is pulled smoothly into the slipstream.
(21:35:35) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: raises her head back from her console and watches the slipstream on the main viewer, taking a deep breath at having left one more grisly scene behind ::
(21:35:40) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Nominal slipstream flight achieved... flight time will be four hours, eleven minutes.
(21:35:49) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: Thank you, lieutenant.
(21:37:01) CO_CaptHarper: :: looks over at Kuari :: XO: Ensure that everything from their log buoy is archived and transmitted to HQ.
(21:38:08) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Internally to self while looking over stellar fusion data: Come on, snap out of it. Everything will work out. You're doing science and you're still alive.
(21:38:40) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CO: Yes, sir. :: dutifully nods ::
(21:38:45) CO_CaptHarper: :: sees that Dr. Tailor is on the bridge :: MED: Doctor, please join me in my ready room.
(21:38:48) CO_CaptHarper: XO: You have the bridge.
(21:39:47) CO_CaptHarper: :: exits to the ready room ::
(21:39:58) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: glances up at Kate and Dr. Tailor as they go past ::
(21:40:03) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: watches Harper get up but doesn't switch seats since she only fits on her own ::
(21:40:21) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::nods at Harper:: CO: Yes Ma'am. ::follows to the ready room::
(21:40:37) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: once the Captain leaves :: All: It's good to get away from that place, isn't it?
(21:41:34) CSO_LCdr_Wright: NAV: If only it were truly that easy to leave it behind.
(21:41:56) CO_CaptHarper: :: doesn't sit down, just leans against the front of the desk, and offers a smile as Tailor enters :: MED: Doctor. How are our wounded from battle coming along?
(21:42:28) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: nods solemnly :: CSO: Yes, that much is true.
(21:42:51) MED_Ens_Tailor: CO: Velekh was treating the last two patients when I left for the Bridge, so they should be all taken care of now.
(21:42:52) TAC2_2Lt_Sykes: NAV: Would be easier if we had saved more of the crew.
(21:43:09) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: is somewhat surprised that she voiced that thought aloud in front of people, but looks at Sykes when he speaks ::
(21:44:24) CO_CaptHarper: MED: Great. And our passengers?
(21:44:39) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: TAC2: Yes, of course... but we did our best, no?
(21:45:00) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Hums to himself, as he types away at nothing in particular; monitoring systems, duty rosters and requisitions.::
(21:45:38) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: frowns, furrowing her brow, but says nothing ::
(21:46:26) MED_Ens_Tailor: CO: Mostly shaken by the experience, and a few needed medical treatment and counseling, but overall they've come out of it ok.
(21:46:49) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: listens to the conversation, especially interested in what his Marine has to say, though he acts disinterested. ::
(21:47:13) TAC2_2Lt_Sykes: NAV: Yes we did.:: Replied in a monotoned voice, unsure as to his own performance::
(21:47:50) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: All: To be honest, I thought it incredible we saved any at all, given that situation.
(21:48:02) CO_CaptHarper: MED: Glad to hear it. Well done.
(21:49:41) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::smiles:: CO: Thank you, Ma'am.
(21:50:19) CO_CaptHarper: :: folds her arms over her chest :: MED: Doctor, as I am sure you are aware, your CMO is on a leave of absence from this ship.
(21:50:47) CO_CaptHarper: MED: I have yet to receive an end date for that absence, and the situations this ship has found herself in do not lend well to being without a CMO.
(21:51:32) MED2_Ens_Velekh: ::looks at the woman in the isotropic restraint sympathetically, her multiple broken ribs calling for such action as he treated her:: Patience, miss. You'll be find in no time. Just rest.
(21:51:41) MED_Ens_Tailor: CO: Ahh, I see. ::is pretty sure where this might be going::
(21:52:05) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: listens to the Bridge conversation :: All: We performed to the best of our abilities as Starfleet officers and rescued people that would otherwise still be under that man's command.
(21:52:10) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks over to Ilaihr's console :: Mr. Ilaihr, how comes the accessing the log buoy?
(21:52:22) CO_CaptHarper: MED: I am offering you that job, Doctor. :: smiles :: You have shown yourself to be a capable leader, already.
(21:53:22) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::blushes:: CO: Thank you Captain. ::smiles:: It would be my pleasure. I'll do the best I can.
(21:54:10) CO_CaptHarper: MED: I am certain that you will. That said, you cannot be a department head as an Ensign, so... :: leans over and opens the Box sitting on the desk, and removes a half pip ::
(21:54:45) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::His humming trails of eerily into silence, as he goes quiet again.::
(21:55:21) CO_CaptHarper: MED: You are hereby promoted to the rank of Lieutenant, Junior Grade. Congratuations! :: pins the pip on her collar ::
(21:56:02) MED_Ens_Tailor: ::beams a smile at the Captain:: CO: Thank you, Ma'am. ::puts a hand up to feel the new pip::
(21:56:27) TAC2_2Lt_Sykes: :: focuses quietly on his console as the rest of the bridge crew continue talking, running the senerio over on his head::
(21:56:51) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: XO: I was unaware that those were my orders.
(21:57:09) CO_CaptHarper: CMO: You are welcome. And thank you, doctor. Ensure that fresh physicals are on file for all crew, and do not skimp on the physical fitness tests.
(21:57:42) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: XO: I have been organising the repair teams.
(21:58:12) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CO: Aye, Captain, I'll do that as soon as it's convenient.
(21:58:37) CO_CaptHarper: CMO: That is all. Dismissed, lieutenant.
(21:59:16) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::nods, still smiling, and exits out onto the Bridge again::
(22:00:27) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Goes quiet again, as he types away at the console looking at the black box data.::
(22:01:13) XO_LCdr_Kuari: ENG: Apologies, I assumed Harper had you on it. The buoy was picked up just before we left. To make sure the buoy is not damaged and the information is retrieved intact, make sure a couple of Engineers are on it in Cargo Bay One, please.
(22:01:50) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: while watching the conversation on the Bridge taking place, sees Dr. Tailor come out of the Ready Room, and sees her new pip. He gets a sparkle in his eye and almost snaps to attention :: All: Chief Medical Officer on the bridge.
(22:02:03) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: sees the extra pip :: CMO: Congratulations, doctor!
(22:02:40) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::smiles at Navarro:: NAV: Thank you.
(22:02:49) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks up at Wolfe's comment and brightens :: CMO: Oh, congratulations, Dr. Tailor!
(22:03:31) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: All: Thank you everyone ::smiles::
(22:03:36) TAC2_2Lt_Sykes: ::Snaps to attention from force of habit:: CMO: congrats doctor.
(22:04:45) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: gets up from her seat and takes a few steps towards Tailor and grins :: CMO: Congratulations, Doctor.
(22:06:46) CO_CaptHarper: :: follows Tailor out after a few seconds :: All: Dr. Tailor is our new Chief Medical Officer. Please cooperate with her requests for your physicals. :: wry smirk ::
(22:07:51) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: barely stops herself from commenting that Kate is one to talk ::
(22:08:19) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::smiles and takes her station again, tapping her badge:: *MED*: Please schedule the crew for physicals at your earliest convenience, Captain's orders. Also, Staff meeting in one hour..
(22:09:24) CO_CaptHarper: :: disappears back into the ready room ::
(22:10:49) TAC2_2Lt_Sykes: ::Returns to rest in front of his console, begins running simulation on the tactics previously employeed to boost effectiveness and timing::
(22:12:08) MED_Ens_Velekh: *CMO*: ::Out of breath from rushing around:: Sure thing. Heard about the promotion by the way. Congratulations!
(22:12:16) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: It's been a while since I had a fellow female department chief. Not since Percy and Roxy. :: idly comments ::
(22:13:44) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: *MED*: Thank you, Doctor. I'll be down in a little while.
(22:14:46) CO_CaptHarper: :: taps her commbadge, looking out the window into the slipstream :: *Suzuki* Captain Harper to Lt. Suzuki. Please report to the ready room.
(22:15:03) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CSO: It's going to take a little getting used to, but it looks as if I'm in good company
(22:15:45) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: off-shift, meditating in her quarters :: *CO* On my way, Captain.
(22:15:45) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Continues to look into the black box data.::
(22:15:51) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: returns to her chair with a smile on her face, happy to think about something positive ::
(22:16:08) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: gives Dr. Tailor a small but warm smile ::
(22:16:13) MED_Ens_Velekh: *CMO*: Acknowledged. ::Taps badge off and gets back to work, hypoing the woman from earlier to help her sleep and taking a moment to assess the damage to his own forehead::
(22:17:33) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: calmly unfolds her legs and stands, hoping her yoga clothing is acceptable as she leaves her quarters, heads down the corridor, and boards the TL :: Bridge
(22:20:25) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: turns back to monitoring the slipstream tunnel, glad to see some happy news ::
(22:20:44) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: steps out onto the bridge, nods at the folk she knows - especially her fellow pilots - and crosses to the ready room, chiming the door ::
(22:21:15) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: nods to Suzuki out of pilot fellowship ::
(22:21:19) CO_CaptHarper: Door: Come!
(22:21:25) CO_CaptHarper: :: still looking out the window ::
(22:22:49) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: enters and glances around briefly, then stands at attention just inside the door :: CO: Suzuki reporting as requested, Captain. Please excuse my lack of uniform.
(22:23:24) CO_CaptHarper: :: turns to Suzuki :: No problem, lieutenant; I know it is after-hours for you. At ease.
(22:24:03) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: assumes a slightly more relaxed stance :: CO: What can I do for you, Captain?
(22:25:12) CO_CaptHarper: Suzuki: It is more about what you already have done. :: returns to the front of the desk to lean on it, palms against it on either side of her ::
(22:25:38) CO_CaptHarper: Suzuki: I have seen you fly Atlantis during my first stint in command. I read Admiral Blackthorne's account of your performance at the helm of the Aquarius. And most importantly, I have flown with you in combat.
(22:26:59) CO_CaptHarper: Suzuki: That is enough for me to recommend you for promotion, and I am happy to tell you that it has come through. :: reaches into the Box, still open from Tailor ::
(22:27:40) CO_CaptHarper: Suzuki: Normally, I would pin this on your collar, but you have none, so here you go. :: hands her a silver bar :: I hereby promote you to the rank of 1st Lieutenant. Congratulations!
(22:28:47) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: after looking over her last series of reports on her console, idly wonders if there will be a party for Tailor ::
(22:28:57) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: a flash of mild surprise crosses her features, but is instantly gone, and accepts the bar :: CO: Captain, you honor me. Thank you for this recognition. I will wear it with pride.
(22:29:40) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: :: taps her fingers a bit on her console, thinking of what else needs to be done.. Starts making a list of items to include in the staff meeting; casualty reports, shift rosters, supply requisitions.. so much to do ::
(22:30:02) CO_CaptHarper: Suzuki: It is well-earned. Keep it up, lieutenant. :: smiles, it doing her some good to be doing these promotions after what happened ::
(22:31:49) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Suzuki> CO: Yes, sir. Thank you, sir. :: waits to be dismissed, like a good soldier ::
(22:32:12) CO_CaptHarper: Suzuki: Dismissed, and good hunting out there. I wish I could join you.
(22:32:59) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Suzuki> CO: It would be my pleasure to hunt with you again, Firefly. :: a small smile, then turns smartly and departs ::
(22:33:42) CO_CaptHarper: :: turns back to the slipstream out the window ::
(22:35:13) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Finishes patching up his forehead and gets to work on the crew physicals. He checking notes, making sure they are organised by level urgency, maybe accidentally putting an ensign who had pissed him off recently at the top of his rota::
(22:38:04) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: :: maybe they can remodel part of the upper level of sickbay into a new holographic operating theatre... ::
(22:39:26) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Four hours or so pass in uneventful slipstream flight, with no one else being promoted.
(22:41:23) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Is still reading the black box data, and pretty much the same as he was doing before he was working on the black box.::
(22:41:25) CO_CaptHarper: SEC_1LT_Syvek> :: meditating in his quarters in front of a single candle, not at all injured or dead ::
(22:42:44) CO_CaptHarper: :: has already made her way back to the bridge, and is peering over Ilaihr's shoulder at the black box data ::
(22:44:31) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: watches Harper peering over Ilaihr's shoulder ::
(22:44:49) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: tries to figure out what Kuari is watching ::
(22:45:12) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Slipstream exit in five minutes, capitana.
(22:46:16) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: Thank you, lieutenant.
(22:46:52) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Tilts his head curiously, sensing eyes upon him, before going back to scanning and reading.:j
(22:48:00) CO_CaptHarper: :: points out a log entry or two :: ENG: Highlight those; I am sure the Admiral will be interested in them.
(22:49:11) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Is suddenly reminded of when his children were young.:: CO: Yes, Captain.
(22:50:04) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::wanders back onto the Bridge after the Staff meeting, writing up reports, and at least two physicals; the ensigns who had their physicals seemed oddly nervous about being in sickbay for some reason ::
(22:50:05) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: All: One minute to normal space.
(22:50:24) CO_CaptHarper: :: takes her seat, still somewhat lightly, not leaning back ::
(22:50:31) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: takes one last look over the documents open on her console, preparing for arrival ::
(22:50:35) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Shipwide* All hands, prepare for slipstream exit.
(22:50:42) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: still has no need to brace for slipstream exit ::
(22:51:12) TAC2_2Lt_Sykes: :: Forwards findings of several simulations over to the main Tactical station showing an end result of an increase of 17% effectivness and speed when including modifications he added in the side notes::
(22:51:17) MED_Ens_Velekh: ::Huffs, head spinning as he sits heavily on the edge of a bed. His tail hangs without energy beside him as he injects himself with a hypo:: Self: Almost done, Ze... Almost. ::Heads back to work::
(22:51:37) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: All: Normal space in ten, nine, eight...
(22:51:57) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Atlantis pops out in the system that harbors Starbase Vinland.
(22:52:30) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks to the main viewer ::
(22:52:33) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: just loud enough to be heard by anyone interested in hearing it :: Self: Smooth as silk.
(22:52:35) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Normal space achieved. Drift issss... 0.3 AU.
(22:52:36) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: back to meditating :: Computer, temporarily reduce announcement volume 60%...
(22:52:55) CO_CaptHarper: :: nods in approval :: Good. Take us to Vinland.
(22:53:10) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Captain, are you intending to dock or simply transport the passengers?
(22:53:53) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: We will dock; it is a little less impersonal to our guests, I think. Get us a berth and clearance.
(22:54:27) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks from Wright to Harper ::
(22:56:10) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Vinland* USS Atlantis, to Starbase Vinland, approaching vector 257 mark 4, requesting docking clearance...
(22:56:24) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: sends the command to tactical around the ship to prepare their external weaponry for moorage. ::
(22:56:31) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: flies Atlantis on in toward Vinland ::
(22:57:05) CO_CaptHarper: XO: It seems nicer to let them disembark at their leisure, rather than to herd them into the transporter.
(22:57:41) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: nods slowly :: CO: I agree.
(22:57:50) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: We have berth and clearance, Captain.
(22:58:07) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Shall I contact anyone to prep to accept the ... survivors?
(22:58:18) TAC2_2Lt_Sykes: ::Nods to the Major in response to his command and begins proceedures::
(22:58:58) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: They should already be aware, but ensure they have accomodations arranged. Also, find out if the rest of the Mustangs we were waiting on when last we were here have arrived.
(22:59:12) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Highlights a few more logs of note for the admiral and captain.::
(22:59:21) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Right away, Captain. :: gets back on the horn ::
(22:59:23) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: cuts impulse as they approach, and deftly glides the Atlantis through the spacedoors ::
