(6:16:24 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: on the bridge and sitting at the helm, as Navarro asked to be excused to attend to some duties in the assault bay ::
(6:16:55 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: has returned to the Bridge for his normal shift of bridging. ::
(6:19:25 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: has the ship on autopilot in its powered halo pseudo-orbit, but keeps an eye out for interesting opportunities ::
(6:20:13 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::is in sickbay busy sequencing the dna from one of the voth volunteers::
(6:20:26 PM) Cpt_Jaspir: :: is back aboard the Mesmir, overseeing repairs ::
(6:22:11 PM) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: :: replacing burned out parts in engineering ::
(6:22:40 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: sits on the Bridge on her seat, having slept little in her excitement, but she's pushing through, unwilling to miss anything happening in this unique environment ::
(6:24:13 PM) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Has been aboard the Mesmir since yestarday, continually repairing things as he goes. Is currently sat in a doorway, drinking a cup of tea, in the dark.::
(6:25:12 PM) CEO_LtQuinn: :: In his office in engineering, taking a rare break from his duties to compose a brief message to his parents. He was out of touch for months, after all, and wants them to know he's okay. ::
(6:27:36 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: SCI: Can you please bring up everything you can find about Hadrosaur dna in the database?
(6:28:16 PM) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: looks over from the console she commandeered in sickbay :: CMO: Of course, Doctor. :: is endlessly fascinated by this ::
(6:32:13 PM) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Whistles to himself between sips, quietly wondering if he's even in an authorised area of the ship.::
(6:32:24 PM) CO_CaptHarper: CTO: Major... please arm phasers at their lowest power setting.
(6:32:57 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: looking a bit impish :: SCI2: Stand by with scanners for some old-fashioned science.
(6:33:28 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: SCI: Go ahead and send it over to this console when you find it. I'll run a comparison..
(6:33:49 PM) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: shuffles through a few irrelevant files before finding the correct file and sending it over ::
(6:33:55 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Aye, Captain. :: arms phasers :: CO: Phasers ready.
(6:34:09 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she is copying data onto a PADD, but sets it down and looks up :: CO: Aye.
(6:34:52 PM) CO_CaptHarper: SCI2: Please advise the Voth vessel that we will be firing phasers to gather scientific data.
(6:36:02 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::sets up the sequencer to run a comparison between the Voth and the ancient hadrosaur dna::
(6:36:22 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: likes where this is going ::
(6:37:14 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CO: Of course. :: taps console to send message to the Mesmir's bridge ::
(6:38:10 PM) CO_CaptHarper: Alright then... :: flattens the ship's pseudo-orbit to bring her closer to the accretion disk ::
(6:38:45 PM) CO_CaptHarper: CTO: Major, target a large object in the disk. SCI2: Ensign, be ready to gather data on the gases and other elements liberated in the vaporization of the rock.
(6:39:16 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: SCI: This is going to take a while, I have a feeling..
(6:39:40 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: nods slightly and begins searching for the perfect target. Settling on one, he targets it and looks up :: CO: Ready, Captain.
(6:39:52 PM) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: lifts an eyebrow, but remains silent at the semi-cryptic statement ::
(6:40:06 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: sees the target on her display and makes a few course adjustments ::
(6:40:34 PM) CO_CaptHarper: CTO: Fire, three second pulse.
(6:40:50 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: taps console, taking down the data from the firings ::
(6:41:10 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Aye. :: fires on the object ::
(6:42:15 PM) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Atlantis's phasers hit the rocky object, vaporizing part of it into hydrogen, oxygen, nickel, iron, and a few trace elements.
(6:43:20 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CO: I'm getting pretty common elements, cap. Hydrogen, oxygen, nickel, iron, and a few others.
(6:43:43 PM) Cpt_Jaspir: *Mesmir* Attention all hands. Atlantis will be firing phasers at environmental debris. There is no need for concern. Carry on with your duties.
(6:44:07 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: SCI: given that there are millions of years of degredation to compensate for..
(6:44:56 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: nods and steers toward another larger object :: Perhaps another target, then.
(6:45:58 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: is already starting to find another something to shoot. ::
(6:46:48 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: had a feeling that Wolfe was getting restless ::
(6:46:50 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::the sequencer slowly begins to find similarities between the two dna's. veery slowly::
(6:47:11 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: jokes :: CTO: Trigger happy, today, Wolfe? :: grins ::
(6:47:12 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Maybe we need to increase power to the phasers. ::
(6:47:25 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: watches Wolf as he shoots, judging his skill in her head ::
(6:47:36 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: very matter-of-fact about it ::
(6:47:56 PM) CO_CaptHarper: CTO: We do not want to blow the rock apart, if we can help it.
(6:48:29 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: slightly dejected :: CO: Aye.
(6:49:42 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CTO: Don't worry, you will have something to blow up eventually. :: chuckles, and copies data from previous firing to her PADD ::
(6:51:10 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: SCI: There's 47 similar markers between humans and hadrosaurs. So considering Voth are supposedly descended from them, there should be alot more..
(6:51:13 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: indicates the large rock ahead on the scanners as Atlantis skims the top of the disk :: CTO: How about that one? It should be able to withstand a 10% power increase.
(6:52:01 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Ten percent is lower than I would have gone, but we can try it. :: takes aim. :: CO: Ready.
(6:52:34 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: smirks to herself as she makes a few slight course adjustments, not at all unhappy to get to fly again :: CTO: Fire.
(6:52:38 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: checks the data on her console and agrees with the 10% number ::
(6:53:08 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: fires, the extra ten percent making him happy. He looks sidelong at Ensign Jude. ::
(6:53:34 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: she quickly taps console, taking down data again ::
(6:54:08 PM) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: Self: Sounds like Mr Wolfe's itchy finger will feel better for it. ::Thinks how quiet this deck is.::
(6:54:43 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::takes notes as the sequencing process continues::
(6:55:11 PM) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The slightly-more-powerful blast from Atlantis's phasers rips into the rock, liberating iron, nickel, hydrogen, oxygen, and... cobalt!
(6:55:46 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CO: I've got some cobalt this time, Captain.
(6:55:49 PM) CEO_LtQuinn: :: Looks up at his chrono. :: Ah, almost time. No harm in shaving off a few minutes.
(6:56:29 PM) CEO_LtQuinn: *ENG2* Quinn to Razyn?
(6:57:03 PM) CO_CaptHarper: SCI2: Cobalt, that is interesting. Let us try another.
(6:57:06 PM) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: :: taps combadge :: *CEO*: Aye, sir?
(6:57:23 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: listens to the test results, twitching her ears, hoping Science is finding this interesting ::
(6:57:55 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: lines up with another object :: CO: On your command.
(6:58:59 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: makes a few slight adjustments, and notes the size of the object, getting the sense that Wolfe is picking ever-larger ones for more phaser power :: CTO: 5% more more power, and fire.
(6:59:48 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: adds the five percent and fires again ::
(7:00:08 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: taps console to once again, gather data from the firing ::
(7:00:53 PM) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Once more Atlantis vaporizes some rock, this time liberating hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon, which can also be detected together as amino acids.
(7:02:02 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: mumbles out loud, and scrunches eyebrows together, before looking up :: CO: I think I've got something you might be interested in.
(7:02:14 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: :: a few more markers light up, indicating more matches::
(7:03:53 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: already has the next twelve targets lined up and ready to go ::
(7:03:56 PM) CO_CaptHarper: SCI2: Do tell, ensign.
(7:04:23 PM) CEO_LtQuinn: *ENG2* Sorry to bother you, Ensign. I know I'm a little early for the scheduled check in, but I was wondering how the power grid repairs are going over there.
(7:04:27 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: turns her head towards Jude expectantly ::
(7:05:06 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: Self: Interesting.. SCI: It looks like they really are descendents of the hadrosaurs. It's like Lucy compared to modern humans..
(7:05:11 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CO: Hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon. Amino acids. Basic building blocks of life, y'all.
(7:05:28 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: widens her eyes further and looks to Harper ::
(7:06:04 PM) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: is vaguely familiar with the mention of this Lucy individual, but is not an anthropologist nor biologist, so is only vaguely familiar ::
(7:06:16 PM) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: *CEO*: Oh, it-it-it's going qu-quite well. Every-every-everything is going acording t-t-t-to-to schedule.
(7:06:43 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: smiles and nods, gratified at the find :: SCI2: Catalog that one for the mission highlight presentation.
(7:07:48 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CO: Aye, aye, captain.
(7:08:04 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: beams, happy to have results and wonders what else they're on the verge of discovering, and looks back to her monitor ::
(7:08:25 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: turns to look back at Kuari from the helm :: XO: To find the building blocks of life here, of all places...
(7:09:30 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::catches that Tlira doesn't quite get the reference:: SCI: It's one of the first species of hominids that led to modern humans..
(7:09:34 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: CO: Did it originate from here ages ago, or is it on its way in?
(7:10:11 PM) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: nods, still only having a vague reference :: CMO: I see.
(7:10:53 PM) CO_CaptHarper: XO: Quite difficult to determine, I imagine.
(7:11:43 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: wonders ::
(7:12:05 PM) CEO_LtQuinn: ::Grins:: *ENG2* Good, good. I see I left the job in the right hands. But now, I'd like to see if we can't get out AHEAD of schedule. Don't worry, I'll have an extra team beamed over immediately to assist. But this rescue mission has had us sidetracked from out mission for months.
(7:12:45 PM) CEO_LtQuinn: *ENG2* Sooner or later, someone's going to get antsy to hit the road. I'd like to be ready before the promptings start coming down to me.
(7:13:55 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: looks down at the sequence of targets that Wolfe has highlighted :: CTO: Major, what is your criteria for target selection?
(7:14:31 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: *CO*: Captain, the results are not quite complete yet, but it's beginning to look as if the Voth are indeed descended from the Hadrosaurs.
(7:15:51 PM) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: *CEO*: I'll take all-all-all the help th-th-that we can g-g-ge-get.
(7:16:15 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: matter-of-factly :: CO: Size, primarily. Just as you asked.
(7:16:26 PM) CO_CaptHarper: *CMO* Splendid! I imagine that knowing they came from Earth will be revolutionary. Once the tests are confirmed, would you like to be the one to give them the news?
(7:16:59 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: *CO*: It would be an honor, Ma'am.
(7:18:03 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: purses lips together, to stop herself from making a joke at Wolfe ::
(7:18:07 PM) CO_CaptHarper: *CMO* Then when you have the results, come to the bridge and we can make that happen.
(7:19:07 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: *CO*: Yes Ma'am, I'll do that.
(7:20:13 PM) CO_CaptHarper: *CMO* Harper out. :: comes about toward the target Wolfe indicates :: CTO: In that case, 3% more power and fire.
(7:20:47 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Aye. :: fires on his next target. ::
(7:20:59 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: gathers data ::
(7:22:17 PM) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> This phaser blast splits the rock, sending debris flying in all directions, a few even boucing off our shields, but traces of uranium are among the more common elements.
(7:22:27 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: checks on the latest Engineering report concerning labor efforts on the Mesmir ::
(7:23:05 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CO: Common elements again, with a touch a uranium.
(7:23:38 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::watches the console as the sequencing data compiles, match after match showing on the screen::
(7:23:53 PM) CO_CaptHarper: Uranium? Hm.
(7:24:41 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: ponders the significance of that for a moment ::
(7:25:16 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CO: Except, uranium only naturally forms in supernovae... So it have had to migrated here somehow.
(7:25:17 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks to Harper and ponders herself, not sciencey enough to deduce the importance ::
(7:25:37 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: perks, that being what she was grasping for :: SCI2: Yes, exactly!
(7:26:21 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CO: So far, amino acids and uranium. What's next?
(7:26:49 PM) CO_CaptHarper: SCI2: I look forward to finding out. CTO: Major, if you will? Level power since this rock is larger and you split the last one.
(7:28:51 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: never mind that she ordered the increased phaser power ::
(7:30:10 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: feels the excitement on the Bridge, adding to her own ::
(7:32:08 PM) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Finishes his tea, then gets back to doing whatever he does when he's left to his own devices.::
(7:32:34 PM) CEO_LtQuinn: *ENG2* You'll have a dozen within 15 minutes. And find Ilaihr if you can.
(7:32:42 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::a few minutes more go by, and the console finally bleeps, indicating the sequencing is complete::
(7:34:17 PM) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: *CEO*: Mm-m-might want to wish me l-l-lu-luck with find-finding him. :: walks out of engineering to find Ilhair ::
(7:34:21 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: lines up on the next target for Wolfe ::
(7:34:26 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: increases power and fires his next shot ::
(7:34:58 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: taps console and gathers data ::
(7:35:59 PM) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The increased power does not shatter the rock, so Harper doesn't notice. In the vaporization, we can detect platinum among the common elements.
(7:36:58 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::downloads the data onto a PADD to bring up to the bridge::
(7:38:25 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CO: We've got more migrating rocks, considering this one has platinum.
(7:39:18 PM) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: Self: I polished up that handle so carefullee, that now I am the ruler of the Queen's Navee.....
(7:39:33 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: peers up from her screen and ponders the meaning of these various targets having such varied compositions ::
(7:40:10 PM) CO_CaptHarper: SCI2: Fascinating. Being able to know that millions of years ago, parts of the rock we just shot were formed in the heart of an exploding star, traveling light-years to get here.
(7:41:07 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: SCI: Will you be going up to the Bridge also?
(7:41:10 PM) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: :: runs hand over the rivets of the ship's interior walls, as he walks by, looking around for the other engingeer ::
(7:43:13 PM) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Ghosts through the corridors of the Mesmir, enthusiastically singing HMS Pinafore.
(7:43:23 PM) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: looks over :: CMO: I believe this is your... show? Is that the correct phrase?
(7:44:02 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: :: grins, knowing she is pulling a Vulcan :: CO: Fascinating.
(7:45:29 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: gets a mischievous look on her face :: CTO: Major, configure shield geometry to expose the Bussard collectors.
(7:46:48 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks up at Harper, surprised, then grins :: CO: Are you doing what I think you're doing?
(7:47:04 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: complies :: CO: Aye, Captain. Stand by. :: in a few seconds the collectors are exposed :: Ready.
(7:47:07 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: turns back to Kuari with an impish grin :: XO: I am.
(7:47:40 PM) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: :: hears a singing, and responds in a Frank Sinatra tune :: ENG: Where aaaaare youuu? Where have you goooone, with out meeeee?
(7:47:46 PM) CO_CaptHarper: SCI2: Route the Bussard collectors to sample containment.
(7:48:06 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::not quite sure how to respond to that:: SCI: It's up to you, but you did contribute also. I'm sure the Captain would want you to be there as well.
(7:48:57 PM) SCI2_Ens_Jude: CO: Aye captain.
(7:49:34 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: plots a safe route through the accretion disk, and dives the ship gradually into the denser gas ::
(7:49:55 PM) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: Self: For my military knowledge, though I'm plucky and adventury, has only been brought down to the beginning of the century... ::Suddenly appears directly in front of Razyn.::
(7:50:14 PM) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ENG2: Greetings, my boy.
(7:50:39 PM) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Atlantis passes into the disk, making her way through it, still towing Mesmir, both ships shielded and safe.
(7:51:58 PM) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: watches the transition, happy they're in control and not entering time dilation but doing science as they want to ::
(7:53:18 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::gathers up her Padd, heading to the turbolift::
(7:54:04 PM) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: ENG: N-n-n-nice opera. D-d-d-digit. Anyway, Quinn w-w-wwants you in engin-engineering to help with th-the repairs. Wants t-t-to get ah-ahead-ahead of schedule and whatnot-not.
(7:54:34 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: pilots the ship safely through the disk and plots a return course to the "top" side ::
(7:56:01 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: TL: Bridge. ::arrives at the bridge in a few minutes time::
(7:57:25 PM) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ENG2: Thank you. I have memorised all the classics...
(7:58:38 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: brings the ship back through the accretion disk to let the Bussard collectors get more samples ::
(7:58:58 PM) CO_CaptHarper: :: takes a quick glance at the inside of the accretion disk on the main viewer ::
(7:59:19 PM) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::steps off of the TL onto the bridge::
(7:59:57 PM) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ENG2: This is a fascinating ship...
