(21:15:48) CO_CaptHarper: :: pinches the bridge of her nose :: ENG: Forgive me, lieutenant... but that does not exactly inspire confidence.
(21:17:43) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CO: I will need my neural set up; like I used with the nanovirue.
(21:18:18) CO_CaptHarper: ENG: Get started while we consider other options. Work fast, please.
(21:19:40) SCI2_Ens_Jude: All: I have blurted out all the ideas I have. I've got nothing else. :: she shrugs ::
(21:19:45) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Removes some equipment from the tray under his console. The set up looks similar to a Strategem playing set.::
(21:20:57) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: from her station, watches Harper and Ilaihr a moment before looking back at her console, trying to think of solutions ::
(21:21:06) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: listens to the conversation around him on the Bridge. ::
(21:21:23) CO_CaptHarper: :: hands on her hips, she turns to the rest of the bridge :: All: If anyone else has any other ides, please, now is the time.
(21:21:47) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CMO: Doctor... I will need you to monitor my neural signals.
(21:22:22) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: preemptively running approach vector simulations through the computer ::
(21:23:15) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ENG: Of course. Just patch the feed through to my console.
(21:24:47) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: shakes her head and shrugs helplessly ::
(21:25:13) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Would you like me to send a brief subspace message back to the Alpha Quadrant indicating our plans?
(21:25:42) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: gives Harper big eyes, her head turned slightly to one side ::
(21:25:46) CO_CaptHarper: :: shakes head :: CSO: It is too far. Prepare a hyper-subspace message, for the last relay we dropped to cache for the next delivery window.
(21:26:30) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Aye, sir. :: sets about doing that ::
(21:27:05) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Places a cortical monitor to his temple, and uplinks his console to the doctors.:: CMO: Consider yourself privileged doctor. Only two people have seen my brainwaves. ::Smiles.::
(21:30:01) CO_CaptHarper: :: takes the few steps back down to her seat and sits on the chair arm :: All: Then we will attempt the subspace bubble, in hopes that it will shield us from the time dilation.
(21:30:24) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::smiles at Ilaihr and glances at the console to make sure everything is showing up correctly.:: ENG: Dr. Moran and myself, I take it? It's an honor..
(21:30:46) CO_CaptHarper: All: However, be prepared, in case it does not work. Our projections show 30-45 minutes, which will cause us to appear to be gone for 3-4 months.
(21:31:38) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: takes note when composing her communique ::
(21:31:44) SCI2_Ens_Jude: Self: Aw man, I'll miss my brother's school concert.
(21:32:00) CO_CaptHarper: :: clasps her hands :: All: It is a lot to ask, I know. But we must help the crew of that ship.
(21:32:22) CSO_LCdr_Wright: All: And we'll be making first contact.
(21:32:55) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CO: It's worth it. :: stares at Harper ::
(21:33:03) CSO_LCdr_Wright: All: Between this race and the Federation planets, that is.
(21:33:12) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Indeed we will.
(21:33:25) CO_CaptHarper: :: nods at Kuari :: All: And that is part of our mission.
(21:33:38) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CMO: Doctor Moran. And my father Solir.
(21:34:26) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::nods:: ENG: Ah, I see. ::smiles::
(21:34:26) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CMO: Solir would warn me against doing this. Kessel would... not encourage... but be enthusiastic about it.
(21:34:41) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: nods back at the Captain over his shoulder :: CO: Our absences should make their hearts back home grow fonder, no?
(21:35:30) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Would you like me to make a shipwide announcement as well...?
(21:35:47) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Or perhaps you'd prefer to address the crew?
(21:36:51) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CMO: I used to have a purpose built device for this... and a lovely Deltan girl
(21:36:52) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ENG: I think this is exciting. Especially since its a first contact
(21:37:18) CO_CaptHarper: :: smirks at Navarro, then nods at Wright :: CSO: Shipwide, please.
(21:37:52) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: opens the shipwide channel and nods at Kate ::
(21:37:56) CO_CaptHarper: :: repeats what she just said to the bridge over the shipwide channel, but polished up a little since it's a second draft ::
(21:38:33) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::smiles at Ilaihr, and looks over to the Captain since she's about to do some speechifying::
(21:39:42) CO_CaptHarper: :: nods at Lexy once she's done, having wandered to the center of the bridge, hands clasped behind her back in a Captainly posture ::
(21:40:00) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: takes in a deep breath, preparing for Harper's speech, as if that settles it. It's going to happen ::
(21:40:38) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: closes the shipwide channel :: All: Channel closed. :: captures the message and includes it in the hyper subspace message, which is almost ready for transmission ::
(21:41:13) CO_CaptHarper: :: relaxes from the speech pose and heads back to her chair, actually sitting in it this time ::
(21:42:21) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: tries to think of anyone he'd want to send a message to back home. Nope. ::
(21:42:45) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CMO: I may become lost. That is what the Deltan girl was for. Their telepathy is serene. However an electrical discharge to my anterior paracortex should suffice.
(21:43:57) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ENG: Understood. I'll be ready with that if I need to.
(21:44:31) CO_CaptHarper: :: looks to Kuari :: XO: Ready to go make some friends, then?
(21:44:54) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: uses comms console privilege to append a very small message intended for her father :: CO: Message ready to transmit, on your order, Captain.
(21:45:03) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: smiles :: CO: I am!
(21:45:32) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Send it. :: knows the Admiral will let her parents know what happened ::
(21:45:41) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::grabs out her medkit and preps the cortical stimulator::
(21:46:25) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Nods, reclining back in his chair; his eyes going milky.::
(21:46:26) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: initiates and watches to completion :: CO: Message transmission complete.
(21:46:57) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::watches Ilaihr's vitals and neural feed on her console::
(21:47:01) CO_CaptHarper: XO: Glad to hear it. :: smiles ::
(21:47:47) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: I will contact the Mesmir and determine their environmental requirements upon transport.
(21:47:56) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CO: Systems are ready, on your order captain. ::Voices goes all echo-y.::
(21:49:20) CO_CaptHarper: :: sits straight up and Picard maneuvers :: ENG: Engage the subspace bubble. NAV: Mr. Navarro, prepare to take us in.
(21:50:40) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::His hands twitch, and fingers seem to strum the air, as the subspace bubble is activated.::
(21:51:02) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: has simulated the best approach and lays it in :
(21:51:06) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Ready, Captain.
(21:51:57) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Atlantis is enveloped in a subspace bubble.
(21:52:13) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Mesmir* Mesmir, this is the Atlantis. We are coming in to retrieve your crew via matter transport. I'm transmitting a general explanation. Please let us know the environmental needs of your crew so we can ensure your comfort.
(21:52:22) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks forward, prepared ::
(21:53:40) Cpt_Jaspir: *CSO* We read you, Atlantis! We will prepare for your arrival. I'm having our requirements transmitted now.
(21:53:45) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::sees Ilaihr's neural feed spike and then stabilise itself as the bubble settles around the ship::
(21:54:23) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Head gently sways side to side, as he configures the bubble's dimensions; anticipating the gravitic sheer.::
(21:54:39) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: Full impulse power.
(21:55:20) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: floors it toward low black hole orbit ::
(21:55:41) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks straight towards Ilaihr, perking her ears towards him and feeling...something ::
(21:56:00) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CSO: Can you send the requirements to my console also in case I need to forward to sickbay?
(21:56:41) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Mesmir* We will, however, first to attempt to retrieve your entire ship via tractor beam to avoid the time required for large-scale transports, but be advised of the options.
(21:57:43) Cpt_Jaspir: *CSO* Thank you.
(21:57:52) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: receives the requirements and sends them to Dr. Tailor's console :: CMO: Based on a quick glance, it appears that their environmental requirements are similar.
(21:58:08) CO_CaptHarper: :: leans an elbow on her chair arm and pinches her chin, watching the main viewer ::
(21:58:50) CO_CaptHarper: CTO: Stand by tractor beam and transporters, Major.
(21:59:53) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CSO: That will make things easier if any of them need our help ::smiles::
(22:00:03) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The subspace bubble endures little strain in the first leg of the journey inward, but the gravitational warping of spacetime has not yet become severe...
(22:00:18) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Aye, Captain. Ready.
(22:01:05) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: Self: Waves crash over Oca'na. Droplets glisten in light.
(22:03:00) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CO: Sickbay is ready for any incoming casualties..
(22:03:34) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Seems transfixed.::
(22:04:09) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CMO: I've sent the lifesign feed to your console, but they all appear to be stable for now.
(22:04:11) CO_CaptHarper: CMO: Thank you, doctor. :: smiles :: I hope we will not need it.
(22:04:46) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CSO: Thank you. ::continues to concentrate on monitoring Ilaihr's feed also::
(22:05:08) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CO: Better to be prepared and not need it than the other way round. ::smiles::
(22:05:16) CO_CaptHarper: :: refrains from telling Navarro to stay well clear of the event horizon, because he will obviously do that ::
(22:05:17) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: Self: The galactic heart, beats to the rhythm of the universe.
(22:05:44) CO_CaptHarper: CMO: Absolutely, doctor. :: glad to have to respond to that since it breaks her thought on the event horizon ::
(22:07:06) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> As we get closer, the spacetime warping starts to be noticable, and the subspace bubble is stressed.
(22:07:31) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: ensures the transporter system is ready to run at full capacity. ::
(22:08:40) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: compensates for a little judder caused by the bubble's stress, makes a few minor adjustments ::
(22:09:07) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Neck twinges.:: Self: Wash'a sugair, mascaani senk. Allosair mogar.
(22:09:31) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: raises eyebrow at Ilaihr, but shrugs ::
(22:10:14) CO_CaptHarper: :: turns back to give a sideways glance at Ilaihr, partially out of concern for him, and partially wondering what the hell ::
(22:11:18) CO_CaptHarper: CMO: Is he alright?
(22:11:50) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::glances between Ilaihr and his brainwave patterns, noticing how the words and the patterns correspond:: Self: Interesting.. CO: He seems to be. His vitals are holding steady so far.
(22:12:28) CO_CaptHarper: :: nods and turns around, knowing Ilaihr's under Dr. Tailor's watchful eye ::
(22:12:38) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: having spent substantial time with Ilaihr privately, isn't terribly alarmed by the spewing of weird ::
(22:13:40) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The time dilation starts to rise logarithmically, and the stress against the subspace bubble intensifies dramatically.
(22:13:50) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Hands wave like he's playing an accordion.:: Self: Mochaa, selem, Arkann inia.
(22:15:27) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::notices an uptick in delta brainwave patterns, as if he's dreaming::
(22:15:51) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: looks at Ilaihr and is slightly tempted to replicate an accordion and put it in his hands ::
(22:16:37) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: compensates for additional judder in their course :: CO: We are halfway to the Mesmir.
(22:17:37) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: Thank you, lieutenant.
(22:17:38) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: continues monitoring the shields, as they are assisting in producing the subspace bubble ::
(22:17:44) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Down in engineering, playing the familiar game of stealing power from wherever he can get it for the reserves. He knows that if the bubble starts to lose stability, dumping more power into it won't prevent the collapse on its own, but it can delay it for awhile. And extra time maters here. ::
(22:18:00) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The ship sudders violently as the subspace bubble contracts, but does not collapse.
(22:18:27) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: All: Ounastae! Cadir?
(22:18:42) CO_CaptHarper: :: looks back at Ilaihr with alarm, then to Wolfe who is a bit more coherent :: CTO: Status?
(22:18:58) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: gives Iliahr a look, then cocks her head, trying to understand ::
(22:19:22) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ENG: Hold steady.. ::frowns a bit as Ilaihr's readings jump. not in the red yet.. but startling::
(22:19:59) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: Self: Suno, wina'tae cadir. Westen.... ::His arms open wide.::
(22:20:38) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: SCI/SCI2 :: T'Lira, Jude, I'm counting on you to make sure we're gathering sensor data from our approach.
(22:22:09) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::raises an eyebrow..not sure what to make of that, but still has the cortical stim if she needs it ::
(22:22:31) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: The bubble is contracting, but it's holding.
(22:22:48) CO_CaptHarper: :: nods at the Major and looks forward again, the main viewer showing quite a sight ::
(22:22:48) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CSO: Okay. Right.
(22:23:10) CSO_LCdr_Wright: SCI/SCI2: I'll be working on it as well, but I need you both to be dedicated to it.
(22:23:17) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: nods in response, eyes on her screens ::
(22:24:16) CO_CaptHarper: AllSCI> Yes, despite our rescue mission, get as much science data as possible. No one may be this close to a black hole to do so ever again.
(22:25:12) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Not a supermassive galactic-center black hole, at any rate, that's for sure.
(22:25:22) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CO: Not if they want to keep from time traveling.
(22:25:38) CO_CaptHarper: XO: Like our friends ahead. I wonder how long they have been there from our perspective.
(22:25:51) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CO: We'll find out soon enough.
(22:26:07) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::huffs a breath of relief as Ilaihr's vitals even out again::
(22:26:43) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: taps at console ::
(22:27:27) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: puts the subspace bubble on her monitor, able to understand that better than Ilaihr's medical readings, despite her time watching her mother work in the labs ::
(22:28:06) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The subspace bubble again contracts violently, then stabilizes for a few seconds as Ilaihr valiantly fights against its collapse... but ultimately, the warping of spacetime is too great and it finally gives way.
(22:28:43) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Atlantis is violently thrown into normal space, throwing things and people around as the inertial dampeners strain to cancel the force.
(22:29:10) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: clings to her seat successfully ::
(22:29:17) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: falls, and grabs the bottom of the console to avoid being thrown more ::
(22:29:21) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: holds onto her console and struggles to stay in her seat, can feel herself starting to slide out before she rights herself ::
(22:29:28) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: flies over his console into the middle of the Bridge ::
(22:29:33) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: unable to suppress her interest, monitors the contextual appearance and movement of the accretion disk as they streak toward the maw of the beast, breaking away by necessity when her body strains against her seatbelt to keep her from being thrown against the bulkhead ::
(22:29:58) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Sits bolt upright, his hands shaking.:: Self: Against... the... tide...
(22:30:18) CO_CaptHarper: :: as she holds on to her chair arms, she's glad to be sitting down this time, not wanting to have to wear that brace again, or worse ::
(22:30:24) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: Self: Oh.. shit..::grabs for her seat but misses and smacks her tailbone as she hits the floor::
(22:30:42) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: All: More.... power....
(22:31:06) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: is seatbelted in too, but holds on to the console for good measure and tries to arrest Atlantis's induced pitch, roll, and yaw due to the collapse ::
(22:31:16) CO_CaptHarper: All: Report! Is everyone alright?
(22:31:38) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::looks over at Ilaihr:: ENG: Are you alright? ::pulls herself back to her feet and sits back at her console. she'll deal with the bruised backside later::
(22:31:54) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: lands well, rolls out of it, and bolts back to his station to give a status report ::
(22:32:22) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CO: I'm good!
(22:32:28) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Is still conected to the computer, locked, trying to reinitialise the bubble.::
(22:32:35) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: wheezes a bit, the seatbelt knocking the wind out of her and leaving what will likely become a painful bruise, but lifts a hand to wave that she's okay and begins watching for crew reports ::
(22:33:00) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: easily cancels out the unwanted motion and puts them back on course :: CO: We are in normal space and I have us back on course.
(22:33:34) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: sees the work that Ilaihr's doing to attempt to reinitialize the subspace bubble and does what he can to help :: CO: The bubble has collapsed, in case you didn't already figure that out. Ilaihr and I are attempting to get it back up. ::
(22:33:50) CO_CaptHarper: CTO: Any damage to the ship?
(22:34:07) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: None, Captain.
(22:34:43) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Reports of minor injuries coming in. Nothing of consequence.
(22:35:03) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::and looks over at the Aenar's vitals.. somehow still fine. He's tougher than he looks::
(22:35:16) CO_CaptHarper: :: hates hearing of injuries, even minor ones, but she nods and moves on :: CTO: Thank you, Major. All: Time dilation is in effect, so work quickly.
(22:35:37) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CO: The darkened heart... she calls to us. Her cries... shattering the barrier between us...
(22:35:39) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: promises herself she'll see a doctor soon to address the bruising ::
(22:36:40) CO_CaptHarper: :: looks quizzically back at Ilaihr :: ENG: There will be no crossing of that barrier today. Sorry to disappoint the black hole.
(22:37:32) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: smirks ::
(22:37:35) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: We are approaching the Mesmir. Two minutes.
(22:38:11) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: crawls back up to console, and taps it :: CO: It has already been two weeks.
(22:38:37) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: feels her heart starting to beat faster as they literally race against time ::
(22:38:39) CO_CaptHarper: SCI2: Time is relative, after all.
(22:39:20) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The time dilation increases steeply as we approach, and the weeks begin to pass...
(22:39:25) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Mesmir* Mesmir, Atlantis here. We are approaching your vessel, ETA less than two minutes from our perspective. Stand by for local contact.
(22:39:52) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: moves off the work of attempting to assist Ilaihr as they approach the Mesmir, and runs final checks on the transporter systems ::
(22:40:15) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Put them on the main viewer.
(22:40:29) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: complies, looking up at the screen ::
(22:41:23) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Head sways like a curious dog.:: Self: Anse klobarn. Milos ent, koma thlubanthe.
(22:41:30) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The Mesmir is ahead, starkly outlined against the utter blackness of Saggitarius A* that fills the screen behind them. Matter can be seen frozen in time at the event horizon as the accretion disk meets it.
(22:41:44) Cpt_Jaspir: *CSO* Thank you, Atlantis. We're standing by!
(22:42:11) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Strain begins to register on his brow, as he keeps pushing.::
(22:42:15) CO_CaptHarper: CTO: Time to tractor beam range?
(22:42:59) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Fourty-Five seconds.
(22:44:08) CO_CaptHarper: :: gripping her chair arms tightly, focusing on their job, but the sight on the main viewer burns itself into her mind, never to be forgotten ::
(22:44:23) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::glances between her console and Ilaihr and the screen; she can see the strain in the readings as well::
(22:44:42) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: approaching Mesmir from above so that they'll end up in front ::
(22:44:54) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: stares at the view screen, mouth agape ::
(22:44:55) XO_LCdr_Kuari: ACTION> The Mesmir is a small, unassuming ship, sleek design but with a textured surface that looks dark as the light is scattered over its surface.
(22:45:49) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: makes final preparations of the tractor beam and transporter systems. ::
(22:45:55) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: brings Atlantis over Mesmir, timing it so that they're in tractor range and orientation at the same time ::
(22:46:07) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: takes in the contours of the ship, trying to determine what technologies they may possess in terms of propulsion, hull, shields... considering the scientific path taken by a completely unknown spacefaring race is always alluring ::
(22:46:15) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Mesmir* Mesmir, Atlantis here, we are in the local vicinity of your ship. We will be attempting the tractor beam shortly, please be prepared for movement.
(22:46:46) CO_CaptHarper: All: Focus, everyone. I know it is breathtaking, believe me.
(22:46:58) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: All: Here we go. :: activates the tractor and signals the transporter rooms to standby, if it does not connect ::
(22:47:30) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Gives it all he can muster.:: All: Let there... be light.
(22:47:44) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The tractor beam successfully locks on, despite the ridiculous local environment.
(22:48:16) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: checks the forces against the Mesmir from the tractor beam :: CO: Their hull is holding, and we have a good lock.
(22:48:22) Cpt_Jaspir: *CSO* We are prepared, Atlantis. Standing by...our lives are in your hands.
(22:48:27) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: Get us out of here, lieutenant.
(22:49:03) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Si, Capitana. :: somewhat gradually throttles up to full impulse, not wanting to stress the tractor, given the extreme environment ::
(22:49:16) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Voice goes dualistic.:: All: Let... there... be... light...
(22:49:22) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Atlantis begins to pull the Mesmir away from the black hole.
(22:50:09) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Mesmir* Mesmir, Atlantis, we have successfully connected the tractor beam, we are now proceeding to tow you away. Everything okay on your end so far?
