(21:27:38) CO_CaptHarper: :: standing watch over the downed Ferengi in case he comes to, as Vinland's security forces file in ::
(21:27:54) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks from Ilaihr to T'Lira to Dr. Tailor :: All: So... what are we thinking?
(21:28:48) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::is looking at the highly magnified nanobots in the electron microscope:: ENG: Borg origin, you said?
(21:29:20) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: All: Damned knockoff borg technology... ::Shakes his head.:: Still big business even now, it seems. This would have been, expensive.
(21:29:36) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: observes quietly, resolving to do a bit more research into nanobots so she isn’t quite so useless should something so far out of her usual field of expertise come up again ::
(21:30:05) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: maintains his post at Tactical, though he's not sure how much he could actually do with his console right now. ::
(21:30:20) CO_CaptHarper: Vinland_CSEC> :: looking incredulous at the situation :: CO: How did you know to look down here, Captain?
(21:31:19) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: paces the center of the Bridge ::
(21:32:19) CO_CaptHarper: VCSec: Mmmm, how do you say... it was a hunch? Though you may want to double check the surveillance feed from this deck.
(21:32:34) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: All: I'll need to use to micro-tractor beam to hold a single probe in place. Then, I believe the only way, is to physically connect to it.
(21:33:59) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ENG: But using technology on the bots... I assume it's safe, if you're proposing it
(21:34:19) CO_CaptHarper: Vinland_CSEC> CO: A hunch. Right. But we'll check that feed out at your suggestion, just to be sure.
(21:34:33) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CMO: I'm sure you have a tool, that can be used to work on organelle, yes? ::Asks curious, hard medicine being one of the few subjects he abstained from.::
(21:35:31) CO_CaptHarper: :: not particularly wanting to tell him more about the covert meeting that took place here seemingly an eon ago, she just perks the corner of her mouth up in a half-smile :: Vinland_CSec: Let me know what he has to say.
(21:36:12) CO_CaptHarper: Vinland_CSec> CO: Yes ma'am, will do. :: directs his men to gather up the Ferengi and haul him to the brig ::
(21:36:42) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::nods her head at Ilaihr:: ENG: Yes, we have microtractors. Both in surgical supply and here in the lab. Try the third cabinet, top shelf. ::points to the correct location::
(21:37:12) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CSO: I will connect it to a tricorder... I can juryrig a basic apparatus. One probe should be of negligible threat.... it's the swarm that it dangerous.
(21:37:26) CO_CaptHarper: :: walks off, footsteps echoing in the vast space ::
(21:37:33) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: nods, thinking ::
(21:38:07) CO_CaptHarper: Vinland_CSec> :: watches Harper go, still not entirely sure how she managed what they could not ::
(21:38:48) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Hobbles off to the cabinet to fetch the necessary equipment.::
(21:38:57) CO_CaptHarper: :: enters the TL and directs it to the promenade ::
(21:41:05) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: follows Ilaihr to the cabinet, ready to assist :: ENG: Just tell me how to help you, and I'll do my best.
(21:41:21) XO_LCdr_Kuari: ACTION> The lights flicker briefly in the lab.
(21:41:34) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks up :: All: That's not good.
(21:41:47) SCI_Lt_TLira: CSO: Agreed.
(21:41:51) CO_CaptHarper: :: exits the TL on the promenade, and finds a quiet corner to tap her commbadge :: *Atlantis* Harper to Atlantis.
(21:42:16) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::looks at the lights:: All: Oh dear..
(21:42:50) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: sits and faces the main viewer immediately :: *CO* Atlantis here.
(21:43:06) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks grim and nods at T'Lira :: All: We'll have to hurry. CMO: Do you have emergency personal lights in here, somewhere?
(21:44:06) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Smiles.:: ENG: I need this handy piece here. ::Points at the microtractor, whilst he grabs some connectors, and some general lab stuff for convenience. Frowns at the lights.:: All: We dont have much time.
(21:44:06) CO_CaptHarper: :: appears on the main viewer :: *XO* Commander, I tracked down our shifty Ferengi. When he wakes up from a phaser stun, he will be in Vinland's brig. :: narrows her eyebrows in concern :: How are things there?
(21:44:31) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CSO: Yes, there's emergency stations throughout sickbay. Also auxiliary power..assuming it's not affected also.
(21:45:17) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::steps over to the nearest one and grabs out a flashlight for each of them::
(21:45:22) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: sighs in relief. At least something is going right :: *CO* Science, Medical and Engineering are working on the problem now.
(21:46:54) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Grabs a very precise celluar manipulation probes, and gathers everything back at the bench, and begins assembling his contraption.::
(21:47:03) CO_CaptHarper: *XO* Have they made much progress?
(21:48:04) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: Hopefully the handheld lights will be immune from corruption of the central computer. :: watches Ilaihr from an inobtrusive distance, offering T'Lira a small shrug as if to say, "I'm not sure what to do." ::
(21:50:05) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: swallows hard :: *CO* They were able to scan for them, and the infection is throughout the ship. There's...no isolating it now. I haven't heard of any success in neutralizing it yet, but everyone is working on it now.
(21:50:41) XO_LCdr_Kuari: ACTION> The lights visibly flicker on the Bridge.
(21:50:50) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CSO: Hopefully.. ::switches hers on to test it out.. ::
(21:50:57) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Puts his spectacles on, as he modifies the cellular probe into a wired connector port; eyeing up the Borg arcitecture, to get the correct shape at the tip..::
(21:51:59) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: flicks on the flashlight that Dr. Tailor provided, to ensure that it works... ::
(21:52:31) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: glances around at the flickering lights, her ears pulling back, then looks helplessly at Harper's image ::
(21:52:59) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Attaches the probe, via connectors, to the tricorder, making a few quick test for conductivity.::
(21:53:03) CO_CaptHarper: :: frowns, seeing the lights flicker :: *XO* Commander... in case of critical systems failure, it may be best to begin considering a contingency plan, to get the crew somewhere safe. If it comes to that.
(21:53:49) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: pleased by the steady light from the flashlight, points the beam down at Ilaihr's hands, trying to help somehow ::
(21:54:20) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: All: Someone will need to monitor the tractor emitter, to modify it's energy frequency, should it possess adaptive qualities.
(21:54:41) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks at T'Lira :: ENG: One of us can do that.
(21:55:51) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CMO: Doctor... I will need your steady hands to perform the connection. Mine are simply too old, but I can guide you, with the microscope.
(21:56:34) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Nods at Wright.::
(21:56:43) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CO* :: nods and looks to the floor for a moment in thought. Finally she looks up at Harper :: I should alert Vinland to prepare for a quarantined evacuation.
(21:58:01) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: pulls out a generic tricorder and begins setting it up to monitor and modify the tractor emitter as needed ::
(21:59:03) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ENG: Sure, of course. ::takes the correct equipment in hand, waiting for Ilaihr to give the go ahead for the next step::
(21:59:49) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: synchronizes the tricorder with that specific emitter, performs a quick test, and nods :: All: I'm ready.
(21:59:53) CO_CaptHarper: :: solemnly, keeping her voice calm as to try not to alarm anyone watching, but concern leaks into her expression :: *XO* Just in case. I will have their transporters standing by, since Atlantis's could not be trusted in that situation.
(22:00:09) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: All: Let us begin. CSO: This straggler here, will be our target, and it's moving less than the others... it may he running out of power.
(22:00:41) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CO* :: nods curtly :: Of course. Atlantis out.
(22:00:43) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: nods at him :: ENG: A good choice.
(22:01:09) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: Self: Or conservation mode... but we won't know until it tries to fight back... ::Chuckles.:: Like a tick.
(22:01:35) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: Self: Or a flea...
(22:01:45) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ...:: barely manages to suppress a shudder ::
(22:02:11) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks to Wolfe :: CTO: Hail Vinland Operations.
(22:02:27) CO_CaptHarper: :: turns away from the wall screen she was talking to and sighs, worry intruding into her thoughts as she heads for the turbolift again ::
(22:03:13) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: eyes glued to the tricorder readout of the emitter's energy frequency ::
(22:03:47) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: attempts to hail Vinland Ops, and it takes a few moments. Then, finally :: XO: You're connected.
(22:04:24) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: then the comms fail :: XO: I had them.
(22:04:25) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *VO* Vinland, this is acting Captain Kuari.
(22:04:51) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks to Wolfe :: CTO: What happened?
(22:05:26) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::carefully begins making the microconnections, under Ilaihr's expert guidance::
(22:05:58) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: works to get the channels back open, and continues to work. :: XO: I'm not sure yet. It seems that our comms went offline, and now they're not starting up. Give me a moment, I have a couple ideas.
(22:06:00) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: flicks off her flashlight and puts it in her pocket, completely by feel as she watches the readout ::
(22:06:42) CO_CaptHarper: :: queries the location of Captain Brandis, and directs the TL to Ops ::
(22:06:57) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::As the tractor engages, he watches how the nanoprobe reacts before changing it orientation.::
(22:07:09) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: swallows hard again and stares at the main viewer, fearing the worst. Keep calm, Vinland will figure it out and be prepared to evacuate anyway. Harper will take care of us ::
(22:07:40) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: continues to attempt to get the communications array to work, but eventually he shakes his head :: XO: It's like they're not even connected now. I might recommend we try smoke signals. :: there is no humor in his voice ::
(22:07:51) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ENG: Energy fluctuations are within normal parameters.
(22:08:15) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ENG: What do you think, is it working?
(22:09:26) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CTO: Connect to whoever you can, however you can. Try direct communications, like we had with Harper. Anything.
(22:10:02) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Nods at Wright.:: CSO: Rotate it 20°X, 142°Y and 4°Z.
(22:10:45) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CMO: I believe it is dumb... ::Smiles.:: Its not fighting back.
(22:11:11) CO_CaptHarper: :: exits the TL to Ops and finds Brandis center :: VCO: Captain, may I speak with you?
(22:11:38) CO_CaptHarper: VCO_Brandis> CO: Yes, I was actually about to call you. Atlantis tried to hail, and was cut off. We can't restablish comms.
(22:12:08) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: taps the tricorder to make the fine adjustments requested :: All: ...There. I think that should do it.
(22:13:02) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ENG: Good, hopefuly that means we're making progress.
(22:13:05) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Smiles.::
(22:13:05) CO_CaptHarper: :: frowns :: VCO: Captain, I fear we must consider the potential need to evacuate Atlantis using Vinland's transporters. Ours cannot be trusted.
(22:13:22) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks up at them briefly for confirmation ::
(22:13:50) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: XO: Aye, Commander. :: taps his comm badge :: Wolfe to Harper... :: shakes his head and taps his badge again :: Wolfe to Vinland Ops... :: hears a bad chirp of no connection ::
(22:14:18) CO_CaptHarper: VCO_Brandis> CO: The situation is that dire?
(22:14:20) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CMO: Do you see the area, it looks like a cathedral... starting there, follow the colonade down to... the fountain... do you see them.
(22:14:30) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: ::another tap :: Wolfe to... Doctor Tailor... :: taps again :: Wolfe to Doctor Tav. :: taps again, and gives a slightly exasperated look :: Wolfe to Kuari.
(22:15:10) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks alarmed :: CTO: Wait, internal comms are down, too?
(22:15:23) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::continues with making the nanoconnections after the adjustments are made, peering at what Ilaihr is describing:: ENG: I think so.. yes.. there.
(22:15:34) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: attempts to see if there is anything he can do from his console, but comes back with a great big negative :: XO: That's how it appears.
(22:15:38) CO_CaptHarper: VCO: It could become that way, if Atlantis loses life support. We just need to be prepared for that... :: sighs, hating this possibilty :: And to tow her out the spacedoors, in case the core loses containment.
(22:16:29) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CMO: This is where for connect into the probe's 'nucleus', its data entry core.
(22:17:29) CO_CaptHarper: VCO_Brandis> :: joins in the frowning :: CO: Alright. :: barks out orders to several of his Ops officers, arranging a transport schedule and a tow ::
(22:17:46) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CMO: Once you do that, I can decode its programming on the tricorder.
(22:17:52) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CTO: We...don't have any comm systems separate from the main computer, do we?
(22:19:41) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ENG: Ok, magnify it just a few more degrees.. Ok, good. ::can see exactly what he means, where the core is.. and makes the final connection.. Steady... and done.::
(22:19:51) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CSO: So far, it doesn't appear to be adapting. It may have only a specific function.
(22:19:55) CO_CaptHarper: VCO: Thank you, Captain. :: looks at the image of Atlantis on Vinland's main viewer, lights flickering all over the ship ::
(22:20:08) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: thinks a moment :: XO: Nothing that's connected to Atlantis
(22:21:32) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Looks at the tricorder telemetry.::
(22:21:59) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: feels somewhat impotent, standing here and staring at the tricorder ::
(22:22:05) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CTO: That's what I mean, something not connected to Atlantis. Something completely separate, like a two-way...radio or something.
(22:22:28) CO_CaptHarper: :: selfishly wishing that Lexy wasn't over there, but chides herself, knowing Lexy is helping solve the problem ::
(22:22:28) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks up from his console :: XO: What about a quantum torpedo?
(22:22:46) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: makes a face :: CTO: What about it?
(22:23:43) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: is clearly thinking of this plan just before each word he says :: XO: I could haul one up here to the Bridge. Then, we could use its telemetry systems to get messages out to Vinland Ops.
(22:24:49) CO_CaptHarper: :: the blinking lights catch her eye and give her an idea, though :: VCO: Captain, can the spacedock internal lights be flashed on and off?
(22:25:36) CO_CaptHarper: VCO_Brandis> CO: Sure, but wh—Morse code.
(22:26:03) CO_CaptHarper: VCO: Exactly. If anyone that would recognize it is looking out the window.
(22:26:46) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: can't help but glance up :: ENG: So... how is it looking?
(22:27:07) CO_CaptHarper: VCO_Brandis> CO: What message would you like to send, Captain?
(22:27:09) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: All: We have a Ferengi encoded language. ::Smiles.::
(22:27:55) CO_CaptHarper: :: thinks a moment, then the answer comes from a few recent experiences :: VCO: To try the comm systems on our shuttlecraft.
(22:28:05) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: thinks :: CTO: Can we try the comms on a shuttlecraft? Maybe they haven't been infected yet.
(22:28:17) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CSO: I believe you are something of a code breaker, are you not?
(22:29:45) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: XO: That, too, could be worth a shot. It would just require that either you move to the shuttle or we figure out a way to get messages from here to the shuttle bay.
(22:29:52) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ENG: M-me? Well... In an amateur sort of way, at best... :: winces ::
(22:30:02) CO_CaptHarper: VCO_Brandis> :: nods to his Ops officer to begin flashing the spacedock lights in Morse code ::
(22:31:32) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Moves over to her, making sure not to tug the connector.:: CSO: With this we can find it source code, it's main protocols, it's encoded replication blueprint. Quite the code to crack.
(22:31:49) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CTO: The Bridge is quickly losing its usefulness. We may need to have runners communicate between the lab they're working in and the shuttlebay so we can stay in communication with Vinland. :: stands up :: CTO: We can't risk connecting systems.
(22:32:06) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks down at it, suddenly wishing Kate were here ::
(22:32:44) CO_CaptHarper: :: watches the lights flash, hoping the message gets through :
(22:33:31) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Has already started, but it's always better to have another set of eyes and pair of hands on it.:: CSO: Hopefully it has a killswitch command protocol.
(22:34:08) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ENG: Well... I might be able to decode this manually, but it could take /days/... but I could try to construct a decryption algorithm. You're more of an expert at that than I am, though. :: frowns at him ::
(22:35:19) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: sees he's already started and sighs, then begins working on it herself, occasionally comparing notes ::
(22:35:33) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CSO: Then we shall have that done quicker. ::Smiles.::
(22:36:05) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CSO: I do not believe in the many cooks adage of your world.
(22:36:55) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks straight up through the window on top of the Bridge, noticing flickering light outside the ship :: Bridge: Oh no...is Vinland affected? Their lights are blinking.
(22:37:01) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: absently :: ENG: There's another adage that says many hands make light work, so they're all just contextual platitudes to begin with.
(22:37:21) XO_LCdr_Kuari: Bridge: At least, I think that's their lights? Our outer hull lights are off, aren't they?
(22:39:22) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CSO: I much prefer that one. CMO: You can use one of those beaker holders for the probe. Should probably do your arm some rest now.
(22:40:32) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::Nods at Ilaihr, grabbing the beaker holder in question:: ENG: Yes, that's better. ::smiles::
(22:40:57) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks up through the large window that tops the Bridge and watches the flickering. :: Self, aloud: There's a pattern. I think it's Morse Code. A... F... T...C... O... M... M... :: he lets the message repeat, then looks at Kuari :: XO: It says we should use a shuttlecraft's comm sysem.
(22:42:43) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ENG: Well... I think I have some partial decryption... can you take a look?
(22:43:05) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Smiles at the doctor, then frowns at parts of the decryption he's working on.:: CSO: These Ferengi are smarter than we give them credit for.
(22:43:06) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: grins :: Self: We think alike.
(22:43:36) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: XO: Well, then. Shall we get down to Deck 18?
(22:43:51) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CTO: Come on, you're with me. :: rushes to the TL ::
(22:44:00) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: follows ::
(22:44:02) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ENG: More crafty, at least. :: holds her tricorder with the partial decryption toward him ::
(22:44:38) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Looks over Wright's decryption, scanning it, and patching it into what he's got. He smiles as her work has filled the gaps.::
(22:44:54) CO_CaptHarper: :: unconciously bites her lower lip as she watches the lights continue to blink on Vinland's main viewer :: Come on, Atlantis...
(22:45:22) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: sees him smiling :: ENG: Did I... get it completely wrong?
(22:46:30) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: boards the TL with Wolfe :: Deck 18.
(22:46:52) XO_LCdr_Kuari: ACTION> The turbolift doesn't respond.
(22:47:02) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::looks on at the decryption process with interest:: CSO/ENG: So this means we're getting somewhere, I assume?
(22:47:43) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: shrugs helplessly at Dr. Tailor, waiting for Ilaihr to explain ::
(22:48:02) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: frowns, wondering if she mumbled :: Computer. Deck 18.
(22:48:35) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Downloads and saves all the information gathered to his tricorder, then enters a few commands; the nanoprobe visably shutting down on the microscope.::
(22:49:13) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Smiles.:: CSO: I told you I preferred that saying.
(22:49:17) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks up, then down, then back at Kuari :: I guess we could just take the stairs. :: thinks through the routing through the Jeffries Tubes to get to Deck 18. ::
(22:49:30) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CSO/ENG: Looks like progress to me.. ::smiles::
(22:49:40) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CTO: :: nods:: Let's go.
(22:49:43) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: blinks, uncertain :: ENG: Does that mean........ ah!
(22:51:10) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Nods.:: CSO: We need to get a shipwide signal out. We have their killswitch.
(22:51:11) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: steps out of the Turbolift and leads the way as he normally would for any executive officer, because most wouldn't know their way. Truth be told, in the case of this XO, he knows much better, that she'd just romp off. ::
(22:51:37) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *XO* Wright to Kuari.
(22:51:54) XO_LCdr_Kuari: ACTION> The comms are dead.
(22:52:18) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: follows Wolfe ::
(22:52:27) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: taps her badge a few more times, then tries the console, finally shakes her head at Ilaihr :: ENG: No good. The comms are offline.
(22:52:27) CO_CaptHarper: VCO_Brandis> CO: While we wait, my security department informed me that surveillance footage is being cycled on deck 16, in deuterium storage, where the Ferengi was found hiding. You wouldn't know anything about that, would you?
(22:52:47) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: Self: Hmmmm. ::Removes his commbadge, and proceeds to take it apart.::
(22:54:05) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ENG: Are you thinking a broadband broadcast of the kill command using our badges as emitters? :: pulls her badge off as well ::
(22:54:06) CO_CaptHarper: :: smirks, shaken out of her vigil waiting for Atlantis to respond :: VCO: I assure you that I am not responsible for that. Beyond that, do you really want to know?
(22:54:19) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: All: There is no ship communication. But we do not need to communicate... only send a signal. ::Using the same tools as the probe, he fiddles with a connects the commbadge to a trricorder.::
(22:54:30) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Smiles at Wright again.::
(22:54:52) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: has already cracked her badge open, making similar modifications ::
(22:55:03) CO_CaptHarper: VCO_Brandis> :: her implications are not lost on him :: CO: No. No, I do not. Anything else we should know about, Captain?
(22:55:07) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::nods at both of them and takes off her badge, beginning to take it apart in the same way::
(22:55:13) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ENG: We should be able to amplify by linking them together.
(22:55:51) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks up at Dr. Tailor and T'Lira, indicating that their badges can be used as well ::
(22:56:12) CO_CaptHarper: :: turns to face him, still with a bit of a self-satisfied smile, but meaning to communicate her sincerity :: VCO: Nothing that I am aware of, Captain.
(22:56:29) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CSO: Indeed, my dear. ::Proceeds to link them together in a circuit, dialing up the power from the tricorder as a signal booster and programming the killcode ::
(22:57:04) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: puts fine touches on the circuit links while he fiddles with the tricorder ::
(22:57:37) CO_CaptHarper: VCO_Brandis> :: gets the message :: CO: Thank you, Captain. Now, I am told we have evacuation transport plans in place for Atlantis and a ship standing by with a tow.
(22:57:57) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Activates the signal burst.::
(22:58:15) CO_CaptHarper: VCO: Give them a little more time... they can do this.
(22:58:22) CO_CaptHarper: :: turns back toward the viewer ::
(22:58:38) XO_LCdr_Kuari: ACTION> The lights remain on, no longer flickering.

(22:59:45) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CSO: It did, but... ::Moves over to a console, activating it, to check.::
(23:00:13) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: does a tricorder sweep, scanning for active bots ::
(23:01:41) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: *Atlantis*: This is Lieutenant Ilaihr. Can everyone hear me? The team lead by Commander Wright in the science lab have been able to crack the infestation.
(23:01:44) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::looks at the group of bots that had been in the electron microscope, that were active earlier, the ones that killed the medibots.. ::

(23:02:36) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: *Atlantis*: Multiple systems will be in need of rebooting, and some need severe repair, but the crisis has been averted.

(23:04:34) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: receives high-five awkwardly ::
(23:05:05) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CSO: ok. well, mostly..
(23:05:28) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Nods.:: CSO: We'll get 'em. ::Sighs with relief, before slowly slumping into a chair; exhausted.::
