(21:24:30) CO_CaptHarper: :: stands when she sees Atlantis's lights return to being steadily on, as they should be ::
(21:24:31) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks at the others in the lab :: All: We're going to need to take this to the far ends of the ship to clear it entirely. Ideally, build more so we can cover it all at once.
(21:26:26) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks to Wolfe, both midway through a Jeffries Tube :: CTO: We should head back to the Bridge!
(21:28:19) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::Nods at Wright:: CSO: Isn't just a matter of transmitting the signal to the infestation?
(21:28:48) CO_CaptHarper: VCO> VOps: Hail the Atlantis. I am certain our guest will want to talk to her crew.
(21:29:10) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: thinks a second about what it woud take to turn around in his gear, in a Jeffries tube :: XO: We should.
(21:29:21) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks at Ilaihr :: ENG: You're the expert, as far as the technology goes. Do we need to build more emitters, or is there an easier way?
(21:30:04) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Is slow to respond, feeling exhausted.:: CSO: If we can get to killswitch command to the station, they can broadcast it across the sector.
(21:30:29) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: turns around, this time not having Wolfe in front of her to slow her down, and begins fast-crawling back towards the Bridge ::
(21:30:46) CO_CaptHarper: :: turns and casts a hopeful look at Brandis and the Ops officer ::
(21:31:41) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ENG: But... can we transmit it via computer? Or... no, it can't be trusted... can it?
(21:31:43) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: gets turned around in time to watch as Kuari rounds the next corner and disappears in front of him ::
(21:35:25) HQ1_AdmBlackthorne: :: sitting out on the deck of their home near Cabo San Lucas, sipping at a glass of whiskey and catching up on a few reports from the various fleets ::
(21:35:52) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CSO: The systems will need rebooting... maybe a complete overhaul. Its not whethwr they can be trusted, it whether they can actually manage the task.
(21:36:08) CO_CaptHarper: VOps> VCO: No response yet, Captain, but they may have not gotten everything online yet.
(21:36:24) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: as she listens to the others discuss their next step, she idly wonders when the internal comms will be back online ::
(21:37:06) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ENG: Do you think.... we can transmit the killcode via coded light flashes through a window? :: looks down at flashlight ::
(21:37:26) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: excitedly squirms out of the Jeffries Tube onto the Bridge and looks around ::
(21:37:36) CO_CaptHarper: :: turns to look back at the viewer, optimistic, but still worried ::
(21:38:19) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CSO: Morse code?
(21:38:35) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Chuckles, knowing she may be semi-serious.:: CSO: That... is certainly possible. It would take some time.
(21:38:53) HQ2_CdorTKirr: :: brings a fresh tea out with her onto the deck, finding Ian right where she left him. Seeing he's busy reading, she sits in the lounger next to him and takes a sip of her drink ::
(21:38:57) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ENG: Well, do we have any other ideas?
(21:41:48) HQ1_AdmBlackthorne: :: signs off on the report and puts the PADD down, and his feet up on the railing :: HQ2: I think that's enough reports for a day.
(21:41:53) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: was actually entirely serious ::
(21:43:18) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: hears the external comm alert from a console and moves towards it ::
(21:44:30) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::He sighs, deflating quite visable, rubbing his eye in exhaustion.:: CSO: At another time I would have transmitted them telepathically...
(21:45:07) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ENG: So... is that a no?
(21:45:21) HQ2_CdorTKirr: :: looks to Ian, noting his attempt to relax ::
(21:46:16) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ENG/CSO: Is there a way to rig a portable device? Maybe hook these badges up to a Padd or something?
(21:47:15) HQ1_AdmBlackthorne: :: tips back the whisky before asking :: HQ2: How was your day? Didn't hear much from you.
(21:47:21) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Holds out his hand.:: CSO: I could attempt it. But I would require you to act as a focus.
(21:48:27) CO_CaptHarper: :: sits back down in an empty chair, which must belong to the Counselor who isn't here ::
(21:48:31) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: blinks at him, then hesitantly reaches her hand out toward his :: ENG: O...kay, just ... tell me what I need to do.
(21:49:03) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: emerges from, the Turbolift, having gone to the nearest one to ride several decks up to the Bridge. He takes his post, ready for whatever comes next. ::
(21:49:23) HQ2_CdorTKirr: HQ1: Fine. A typical day. :: sips at the rim of her glass ::
(21:50:23) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: accepts the hail that was beeping on the Bridge as she entered and notes Wolfe's arrival ::
(21:51:01) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Gently takes her hand; the tremor that he usually hides becoming noticeable.:: CSO: Focus on... the Captain. Picture her face, and your feelings for her... an your emotions shall guide me to her.
(21:51:08) CO_CaptHarper: VOPS> VCO: Captain, the Atlantis is answering.
(21:51:16) CO_CaptHarper: VCO> VOps: On screen.
(21:51:46) CO_CaptHarper: :: bolts upright as Kuari appears on the screen :: *XO* Kuari! Is everything alright?
(21:53:10) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::looks between the two of them, not really sure what to do with telepathic communication, but ready to jump in if there are any physical problems::
(21:53:54) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ENG: O..okay. :: feels immediately self-conscious, but clasps her friend's trembling hand in her own steady grip and closes her eyes, allowing her thoughts to drift to Kate - is filled with warmth when she imagines that smile, that frown, that laugh, that ring she has hidden in their quarters ::
(21:55:10) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: grins widely :: *CO* I think so! We've seemed to disable them. I'm going to begin assessing the damage now. :: looks to Wolfe ::
(21:55:55) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: is looking down at his console, getting stats on everything that's taken place since he's been gone. ::
(21:56:24) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::His eyes go milky, vibrating as if in REM; going quiet. The fingers of his free hand twiddle and roll his around; as if using a joystick.::
(21:56:41) CO_CaptHarper: *XO* Wonderful! Do you require any assistance from over here? :: looks at Brandis, hoping he's still not stinging too badly from that burn she gave him over the fighters ::
(21:56:46) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: finally notices that the word "damage was uttered and looks up :: XO: Reports are coming in now. Stand by.
(21:57:52) HQ1_AdmBlackthorne: HQ2: Is the bureaucratic life suiting that scientific mind of yours, Commodore?
(21:59:07) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ~CO~: Captain.... ::He says quietly and garbled...:: Can you hear us?
(21:59:44) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: XO: The ship's systems are rebooting now. Comms don't take long, obviously. Other systems will take anywhere from minutes to a couple days. Now that I have a pattern to look for, I am showing that we have nanobots left over in the extreme ends of Atlantis, at the bow and stern. You might not want to take any important computer systems into Ten Forward for a bit.
(22:01:08) Sci2_Ens_Jude: :: Linxi had heard about the issues the Atlantis was having and was even more anxious than she was when leaving Earth. She chewed on her lip and she rapidly walked towards Ops, where she was told Harper is. ::
(22:01:17) CO_CaptHarper: :: suddenly feels like she forgot something, but is unable to figure out what it is ::
(22:01:25) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks from Wolfe to the image of Harper on the main viewer :: *CO* Did you get that? We've got some work to do here. Do you want to come back aboard?
(22:02:53) CO_CaptHarper: :: looks back at the viewer :: *XO* I heard, and I am eager to get back aboard, believe me.
(22:03:28) Sci2_Ens_Jude: Self: You have not even gotten on the Atlantis yet. Calm down. Deep breath. Oh, the four deities, this is already a disaster.
(22:03:50) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CO* I don't see any reason you can't, now. I would just use Vinland's transporters until we know ours are safe. We can probably break quarantine soon.
(22:03:50) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: feels incredibly awkward, standing here thinking about Kate in front of other people ::
(22:03:52) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::In the mental construct he uses to perceive the telepathic world, he taps a microphone in morse, hoping he gets through subconsciously, before breaking contact and falling back in his seat.::
(22:05:26) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ENG: Are you all right? ::noting how exhausted he seems, reaching for a nearby tricorder::
(22:05:32) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: opens her eyes with a start when his hand pulls out of hers, and quickly pulls hers back to her side :: ENG: Wh-what happened?
(22:06:22) CO_CaptHarper: *XO* Excellent. I will return shortly. Remain in contact with Vinland Ops to re-establish docking procedures and telemetric links as necessary.
(22:06:43) Sci2_Ens_Jude: :: She awkwardly walks into Ops, and gets into attention :: CO: Uh- hi. Ensign Jude- reporting for duty.
(22:06:51) HQ2_CdorTKirr: HQ1: I...I'm not sure yet. There is a quality to it different from Atlantis that could be interesting, but for the most part, it is...much less...exciting than being aboard Atlantis.
(22:07:20) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Lets go of Alexis' hand, almost going limp.:: CMO: I am fine my dear. CSO: I located the Captain. Her mind has been trained to resist telepathic contact and I am... too old, to push the point. However she should get a niggling feeling that she needs to do something.
(22:07:50) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CO* Aye. Atlantis out. :: begins studying the ship from her own console while Wolfe works at his, just the two of them on the otherwise empty Bridge ::
(22:08:31) CO_CaptHarper: :: turns from the fading-away Rucara on the viewer as Jude addresses her :: Sci2: Ensign... Jude, did you say? :: offers a welcoming smile :: I wish I could welcome you aboard, but that will have to wait a few minutes.
(22:09:02) CSO_LCdr_Wright: ENG: I just hope she realizes what that something might be before... If the comm systems are up, perhaps we could....
(22:09:12) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *XO* Wright to Kuari.
(22:09:51) HQ1_AdmBlackthorne: HQ2: Yeah, I thought you'd say that... and I agree. :: smirks :: But this is where we're needed now. It has its perks.
(22:10:14) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CSO* :: recognizes Wright's voice :: Go ahead. Good news, I hope?
(22:10:48) HQ2_CdorTKirr: HQ1: It does. :: stretches out her legs a bit more ::
(22:11:23) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *XO* Kuari, the thought here is that the best bet is for the station to transmit the killcode in a wide band, but we're not sure we can transmit the killcode to them over the computers.
(22:12:01) Sci2_Ens_Jude: CO: Yeah- I heard about the er... situation. It's a lot to take in. :: she nervously plays with her hands ::
(22:12:24) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *XO* There was... an attempt to reach Captain Harper telepathically, but we don't think it took. Possible that we can signal with ... a flashlight?
(22:13:07) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: knowing that her friend is being tended to by the doctor, lets his situation fall from her mind to allow her to focus on the matter at hand ::
(22:13:28) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: ponders Wright's words for a few moments and thinks through a solution :: *CSO* Harper is using Vinland's transporters to come aboard. I could contact Vinland Ops and have one of you transported there, as long as Doctor Tailor is sure we're not infectious.
(22:13:28) CO_CaptHarper: Sci2: It is! But do not worry, the crew has it under control. I was just about to return to the ship. Would you care to come along?
(22:15:04) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *XO* ...of course, it would be much safer if we could remove the risk of contamination entirely, but perhaps I am being overly cautious.
(22:15:20) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CSO: We shouldn't be.. it doesn't affect people, only the technical systems.
(22:15:26) Sci2_Ens_Jude: CO: Oh- us, sure! :: she relaxes from the stiffened pose ::
(22:15:44) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: Well, yes, but I can't exactly memorize the killcode.
(22:16:35) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CSO* Assuming you kept it separate from the main computer, can you take it with you on a PADD?
(22:17:42) CO_CaptHarper: Sci2: Come with me, then. :: pauses, and takes removes the phaser she checked out from the armory from her belt, and hands it to the CSEC :: CSEC: Thank you for that. :: exits to the TL ::
(22:18:10) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: quickly scans the tricorder that was used for the commbadge transmission for contamination ::
(22:18:17) Sci2_Ens_Jude: :: follows Harper ::
(22:18:38) CO_CaptHarper: VCSEC> :: takes the phaser, knowing what it was used for and still wants to know how she did it ::
(22:18:40) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Quietly agrees with the commander, as he controls his tremor, and rests his eyes for moment.::
(22:19:44) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *XO* I have a clean tricorder. I'll take it to Vinland, if you wish, Commander.
(22:20:29) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CSO* Please do. Report back when you're finished and we confirm Atlantis is clean.
(22:20:34) CO_CaptHarper: TL: Transporter room. :: as they ride :: Sci2: So, I recall reading your profile before your assignment. It is impressive, and I think you will be a good fit.
(22:20:58) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *XO* Do I need to contact Vinland for transport?
(22:21:37) HQ1_AdmBlackthorne: :: takes a deep breath :: HQ2: Like that sea air...
(22:22:00) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: tap-tappity-tap :: *CSO* I've put in the request for transport. Vinland is standing by for your comm.
(22:22:17) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *XO* Aye, Commander. Wright out.
(22:23:06) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CSO: Much easier... ::Smiles.::
(22:25:04) Sci2_Ens_Jude: CO: Oh- thanks. :: she stood in silence for a moment :: CO: So the oddly large amount of tactical classes I took aren't weird?
(22:25:35) CO_CaptHarper: :: smirks :: Sci2: Not to a fighter pilot who started in Science and is now your CO. :: exits into the TR and steps up on the pad ::
(22:26:20) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: smiles back :: *VOPS* Starbase Vinland, this is Lieutenant Commander Wright, ready for transport. My commbadge is non-functional, scan for me at shipboard coordinates :: rattles off coordinates ::
(22:27:01) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: All: Well done everyone. ::Stammers.:: The captain will be proud.
(22:27:19) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: finishes his diagnostics :: XO: Looking at all the systems on the ship, no major functions were damaged beyond anything a good reboot won't fix. In fact, the only one that's going to take excessive work is hydroponics. Strange.
(22:27:25) Sci2_Ens_Jude: CO: Daaamn. My academic adviser kept trying steer me away from those. I swear, the day I get to kick ass, I'm gonna send a subspace message to him and tell him 'I told you so'.
(22:27:27) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: clasps tricorder tightly ::
(22:27:36) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::smiles:: ENG: We couldn't have done it without you.
(22:27:59) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: nods in agreement with Dr. Tailor :: CMO/ENG: Agreed.
(22:28:14) CO_CaptHarper: Sci2: Talk to the new CAG; I am sure she would be interested in a prospective pilot. TRChief: Energize.
(22:28:36) XO_LCdr_Kuari: ACTION> The proper crew member, Wright, is transported to Vinland's transporter room, sadly right after Harper and Jude are transported to Atlantis.
(22:29:08) CO_CaptHarper: :: appears back on Atlantis, quite happy to be here :: Sci2: Now, I can properly say, welcome aboard.
(22:29:34) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: has no idea she just missed Kate, looks around :: TRChief: Excuse me, can you point me to Vinland Ops?
(22:30:32) Sci2_Ens_Jude: :: looks around :: CO: Nice ship you've got there.
(22:30:48) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Smiles, sitting up and regaining his composure, eventually standing.:: CMO: I should get to repairs... I am sure there will be many.
(22:31:03) CO_CaptHarper: Sci2: I know it. :: enters the TL :: Bridge.
(22:31:15) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: hurries up to Ops, following directions ::
(22:31:46) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::Nods at Ilaihr:: ENG: I'll need to check sickbay's systems. I expect lots of repairs here as well..
(22:32:13) Sci2_Ens_Jude: :: runs into lift with Harper :: CO: Um. I... am not exactly sure where I am supposed to go.
(22:32:37) CO_CaptHarper: Sci2: The bridge is always a good place to start.
(22:33:22) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CMO: After you doctor. SCI: Lieutenant?
(22:34:16) CO_CaptHarper: :: exits the TL onto the bridge and looks around, apparently just having missed Kuari ::
(22:34:20) Sci2_Ens_Jude: CO: I guess I am just going to follow you then. :: she cracks her knuckles :: CO: My dad- he's an engineer on another ship- told me not to be nervous, but I can't help it.
(22:34:22) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: looks up from her PADD, where she was making notes about the attempt at telepathic communication :: ENG: Of course.
(22:34:43) CO_CaptHarper: Sci2: It is normal, Ensign. We all were there once.
(22:35:08) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: enters Vinland Ops somewhat breathlessly :: VOPS: Hi, I'm Lieutenant Commander Wright from the Atlantis... I have here a killcode that we should transmit on a broad band to kill all of the nanobots in the vicinity. :: holds up tricorder ::
(22:35:10) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::packs up the microscope and slides, putting things away that they used, then heads back out to sickbay::
(22:35:22) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: All: When you get the damage reports, remember to send them to me. ::Smiles.::
(22:35:45) CO_CaptHarper: CTO: Where is everyone, Major?
(22:36:05) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: finishes up her current sentence and turns to leave, slightly distracted ::
(22:37:34) Sci2_Ens_Jude: :: places hands behind back :: CO: If you don't mind me asking... Why'd you join Starfleet?
(22:37:43) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::nods, at Ilaihr:: ENG: Of course ::Smiles::
(22:39:11) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Vinland Ops transmits the killcode across the entire Starbase and all ships inside it.
(22:39:44) CSO_LCdr_Wright: VOPS: And here's the scanner protocol to search for them... let's make sure they're all gone.
(22:40:12) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Plods along behind the others out of the lab, and heads for the bridge.::
(22:40:32) CO_CaptHarper: Sci2: Inquisitive girl needed to get off Risa and explore, basically.
(22:40:48) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: About 70% of the crew is aboard Atlantis now. I've sent a message to those on Vinland that it is now safe to come aboard, and everyone should be here within half an hour.
(22:41:48) CO_CaptHarper: VOPS> :: takes the protocol and scans :: VCO: I am picking up no trace of the nanobots, Captain.
(22:42:11) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: grins ::
(22:42:38) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::goes back into sickbay, and grabs a padd; walks around taking inventory of all the systems that aren't working::
(22:42:44) CO_CaptHarper: VCO_Brandis> CSO: Well done.
(22:42:51) CSO_LCdr_Wright: VOPS: And now you have these, in case anyone else decides to use your starbase as a hunting ground.
(22:43:09) CO_CaptHarper: VOps> CSO: Indeed.
(22:43:13) CSO_LCdr_Wright: VCO: Thank you, Sir.
(22:43:30) CO_CaptHarper: :: tries to conceal her concern :: CTO: Where is Commander Wright?
(22:43:30) Sci2_Ens_Jude: :: she can't help but stare at the <strike>magnificent beast of a man</strike> bloody enormous CTO as she steps onto the bridge :: Self: Damn.
(22:43:41) CSO_LCdr_Wright: VCO: Now, unless there's anything else... I'll return to my ship.
(22:44:37) CO_CaptHarper: VCO> By all means. :: smiles ::
(22:46:01) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: fails to notice his being admired ::
(22:46:02) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: gives a little awkward wave of gratitude and heads back down to the TR ::
(22:47:59) Sci2_Ens_Jude: :: she grins awkwardly, hands clasps behind her back :: CTO: Haaaaiiiii :: her face seems to have immediately turned red ::
(22:48:00) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Steps off the TL onto the bridge, noticing the captain's return, he promptly takes up his post. Testing a theory, he taps a number of his times on the console, before turning to address her.:: CO: Its is good to have you back, Captain.
(22:48:20) CO_CaptHarper: ENG: Thank you, Lieutenant.
(22:51:15) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: She is assisting engineering in resolving this issue. I would guess she should return to the bridge shortly.
(22:52:11) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CO: She beamed over to the station, Captain.
(22:52:38) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CO: To facilitate the transmission of the killcode to the sector.
(22:52:49) CO_CaptHarper: ENG: ... :: manages a smirk :: Thank you. :: hates that she just missed Lexy ::
(22:53:26) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: wishes she could call and tell them the bots were all gone, but has no comm badge :: TRChief: Please send me to the Transporter Room aboard Atlantis.
(22:53:35) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: turns and notices Ensign Jude, and looks her up and down before turning back to his console :: SCI2: Do you need any assistance returning your jaw to its rightful place, not on the floor? :: speaks flatly ::
(22:54:33) Sci2_Ens_Jude: CTO: Wait- what? Oh- no. I'm fine. Totally fine. Perfect. Great. Fantastic. I will shut up now.
(22:54:36) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Turns back to his console, to examine the full extent of the damage the nanoprobes had done.::
(22:54:38) CSO_LCdr_Wright: TRChief: Energize.
(22:54:59) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: turns back to his console and keeps working, smirking after she's not looking ::
(22:55:18) Sci2_Ens_Jude: Self: Stupid! Stupid, stupid, stupid!
(22:55:35) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::so far has found ten malfunctioning biobeds, several malfunctioning systems in the surgical suite, the antigrav therapy chamber, the replicators (of course), the ICU.. and at least one EMH processor..::
(22:55:47) Sci2_Ens_Jude: :: scratches the back of head, circling in place ::
(22:55:51) CO_CaptHarper: :: realizes what just happened, smiles to herself, and points out the science console to Jude :: Sci2: Right that way, Ensign.
(22:57:25) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: rematerializes in the TR and heads directly for the TL :: TL: Bridge.
(22:58:02) Sci2_Ens_Jude: CO: Oh, snap. Right. :: she regains composure, walking over to the console ::
(22:58:09) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Swears quietly in Breen, his voice not as scrambled, but almost as convincingly chaotic sounding.::
(22:58:20) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::begins writing up her reports, this is gonna take a while to fix::
(22:59:01) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: hopes to find Kate when she gets there, impatiently waiting for the TL to get to the right deck ::
(22:59:12) Sci2_Ens_Jude: :: she loudly whispers to Harper :: CO: You totally didn't see that, did you?
(22:59:48) CO_CaptHarper: Sci2: Oh, I did. :: offers a private, knowing smile ::
(23:00:53) Sci2_Ens_Jude: :: a high pitched squeak escapes her mouth as she stares ahead ::
(23:01:25) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: the doors finally swish open and she steps out onto the bridge, her eyes immediately finding Kate smiling privately and knowingly at a strange woman sitting at her science console :: CO:.......Permission to resume my station, please... Captain?
(23:02:22) Sci2_Ens_Jude: :: jerks her head towards the doors, looking at Wright ::
(23:02:35) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: narrows eyes, gives tight smile ::
(23:02:41) CO_CaptHarper: :: turns to see Lexy and can't help herself from sweeping her into a hug, decorum be damned ::
(23:02:52) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Self: Oof!
(23:03:20) CO_CaptHarper: :: whispers :: CSO: I was so worried...
(23:03:32) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Continues cursing, transitioning into more discernable languages; like Bajoran, and Klingon, because they are peoples with a handle on swear words.::
(23:04:06) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: blushes crimson, whispers :: CO: I... I missed you, too.
