(21:22:45) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: lies on her seat on the Bridge, studying her console ::
(21:22:47) CO_CaptHarper: :: sitting at the helm, since Navarro still is at work in the assault bay :: CTO: Major, is the object aboard yet?
(21:24:22) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: waiting outside the cargo bay, ready to initiate scans from the console ::
(21:26:18) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::arrives on the Bridge from sickbay, with PADD in hand, looking for the Captain and the Voth guests::
(21:27:05) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Aye, Captain. It's in Cargo Bay 3 now.
(21:27:34) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: @::Is working away at the Voth repairs, wondering just what the crew had found out there. He find it distracting.::
(21:28:28) CO_CaptHarper: All: Time to get out of this disk, then. :: plots a course out of the mess ::
(21:29:47) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CO: I have some news that our guests might find interesting.. would it be possible to arrange a meeting in the conference room when we get an available moment?
(21:30:01) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: notes Tailor on the Bridge and straightens up, her ears forward ::
(21:30:05) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Bridge* Bridge, Wright here. Is the object securely in the bay and the bay repressurized?
(21:30:21) SCI_LCdr_TLira: :: in Science Lab One, looking over data from the singularity and accretion disk ::
(21:30:52) CO_CaptHarper: :: before engaging the engines, she turns to Tailor :: CMO: Of course, doctor. As soon as we clear the accretion disk, we will extend an invitation. :: smiles ::
(21:31:15) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CSO* It's now in Cargo Bay Three, ready for you.
(21:31:51) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *XO* Thank you, Commander, I'm initiating scans now prior to entry. Wright out.
(21:31:58) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: initiates scans ::
(21:32:59) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: nods at Wright's last words and turns her attention back to Tailor and Harper ::
(21:33:04) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CO: Of course. That'll give us a little more time to prepare..
(21:33:34) CO_CaptHarper: :: monitors the computer's control of Atlantis through the disk ::
(21:34:32) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::finds a station and goes over the information she brought, polishing the report a bit more::
(21:34:43) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: steps into the clean vestibule and begins suiting up, monitoring scans from there ::
(21:36:10) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Atlantis emerges from the "top" of the accretion disk, Voth ship in tow, breaking through a thick layer of gas and dust.
(21:37:43) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::taps badge::*MO*: Doctor Lauphel, would you be interested in attending this meeting with the Voth? You may enjoy learning about them.
(21:37:55) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: watches the main viewer, taking note of their transition ::
(21:39:10) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ENG2: How are you coming along, Ensign?
(21:39:20) CO_CaptHarper: All: We are clear; re-establishing the powered pseudo-orbit. :: turns back to Kuari and grins :: XO: Commander, would you care to invite our friends over?
(21:39:52) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: grins and nods ::
(21:40:36) MO_DrArtLauphel: ::instinctively moving his head toward the ceiling:: Of course, Doctor. Be right there.
(21:41:26) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: looks to Wolfe :: CTO: Hail the Mesmir.
(21:41:29) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: runs the tricorder over herself to ensure that she's clean :: *XO* Wright here. Clean status verified. Entering cargo bay.
(21:41:56) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: XO: Aye.
(21:42:06) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CSO* Thank you. Standing by to hear more. Bridge out.
(21:42:11) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: inputs the hail... ::
(21:42:21) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: XO: They are responding, Commander.
(21:42:50) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: *MO*: It's not quite started yet, but you could come up to the Bridge while we wait.
(21:42:55) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: pops the seal on the clean vestibule and cautiously enters the cargo bay, checking tricorder readings as she approaches the object ::
(21:43:13) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *Mesmir* Atlanits to Mesmir. Captain Jaspir, we have results from our DNA tests you will want to hear. We are standing by to beam you aboard.
(21:43:53) Cpt_Jaspir: *Bridge* My party of three await your transport, Atlantis.
(21:44:58) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: again looks to Wolfe :: *CTO* Major, would you care to escort them from the transporter room?
(21:45:48) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: XO: Aye. :: walks off Bridge to TR1 ::
(21:46:50) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: returns to the bridge, having finished his work in the assault bay, and approaches the helm ::
(21:47:36) CO_CaptHarper: :: seeing Navarro, she stands and Picard-maneuevers with a smile, then gestures at the chair :: NAV: All yours, lieutenant.
(21:48:01) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: arrives in the transporter room and lets the doors close behind him. :: Transporter Chief Cronkite: Good evening, Chief. Are they ready?
(21:48:03) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: watches Navarro take his seat and looks to Harper ::
(21:48:12) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: Cronkite> CTO: Aye, Major.
(21:48:30) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: Chief: Very good. Energize.
(21:48:48) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: Chief> :: activates the Tranporter ::
(21:48:56) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: with a charming grin :: CO: Thank you, ma'am. Could not resist taking her in, I see?
(21:49:22) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: Of course not. :: laughs and walks back toward the center seat, but doesn't sit, since guests will be arriving imminently :
(21:50:32) Cpt_Jaspir: :: shimmers onto the transporter pad in front of Wolfe, the familiar faces of Thorkin and Gunra to either side of him. He offers Wolfe a big smile and steps down :: CTO: Big news, I hear!
(21:51:17) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: nods to Jaspir :: Cpt: This is true. Would you care to come with me to the Bridge?
(21:51:24) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: sits down and checks in on their trajectory ::
(21:52:00) Cpt_Jaspir: CTO: Yes, lead the way.
(21:53:01) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: turns curtly and leads the Captain and his entourage to the Turbolift and onto the Bridge. ::
(21:53:22) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Computer* Computer, begin Chief Science Officer's log, Star date... :: fills in relevant details ::
(21:54:02) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: stands up expectantly next to Harper as Wolfe re-enters with their guests ::
(21:54:23) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::stands out of respect for the guests as they enter::
(21:54:51) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: arrives by Turbolift, walks out onto the Bridge, and steps to the side. CO/XO: Captain and Commander. Captain Jaspir.
(21:55:37) CO_CaptHarper: CTO: Thank you, Major. :: smiles welcomingly at their guests :: Jaspir et al: Welcome back aboard.
(21:55:38) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Computer* Object is a metallic sphere with a dull finish, approximately 1.42 meters in diameter. External metal appears to be of Gencodian origin, scans do not penetrate. I am approaching the object now.
(21:56:36) Cpt_Jaspir: :: bows his head respectfully, and the other two Voth do the same :: CO: You are most kind, Captain Harper, as is your crew.
(21:57:28) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: slowly circles the object, looking for external markings, and finds none ::
(21:57:39) CO_CaptHarper: Jaspir: Thank you, Captain. If you please, we can use our conference room. Dr. Tailor has news. :: gestures to the CR ::
(21:58:55) Cpt_Jaspir: :: nods and obediently walks into the conference room, eager to hear the news ::
(21:59:02) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Humming away to himself; as he constantly moves between stations in the Mesmir's engineering; fixing things as he goes.::
(21:59:44) CO_CaptHarper: CTO: Major, the bridge is yours. XO, CMO: Commander, Doctor, with us.
(22:00:16) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: heels next to Harper ::
(22:00:48) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Aye. :: hadn't stepped back to his console yet, so he simply goes to the center chair acting as though it's not his first time getting that view. ::
(22:00:56) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::nods to Harper and grabs her Padd, following along::
(22:03:31) CO_CaptHarper: :: moves to her seat in the CR and waits for everyone to file in ::
(22:04:49) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::goes towards the front, transferring her information to the presentation screen::
(22:05:08) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: stands at the space at the table next to the end with no chair ::
(22:05:35) CO_CaptHarper: :: remembers that there used to be a chair there ::
(22:06:00) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Computer* The external shell of the object is perfectly smooth with no markings from what I am able to see. I will now attempt to roll the object to reposition and look at it from other angles. ...Carefully. :: reaches out and gently lays her gloved hands on the sphere, applying the smallest amount of pressure possible to get it to roll ::
(22:06:27) Cpt_Jaspir: :: walks in quickly near the head of the table across from Kuari, the other two Voth following and standing by their chairs. None seem eager to sit ::
(22:08:47) CO_CaptHarper: :: sees that no one sits, and also remains standing, picking up on the excitement as she watches the screen ::
(22:09:04) XO_LCdr_Kuari: ACTION> The object rolls with Wright's efforts, but does nothing other than roll.
(22:09:49) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: is pleased that it didn't explode and carefully positions it so that she can see what were previously the top and bottom up close
(22:10:18) Cpt_Jaspir: :: looks to Tailor, she seems to be leading the show and waits with a smile and bright eyes ::
(22:11:10) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: All: Thank you for coming. ::brings up the first presentation slide:: The news that I have to share is sure to be a bridge between our worlds. We studied the DNA samples that you provided, and found something that will be of definite interest to both of our cultures...
(22:12:56) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: All: After some digging, we have found definite links between the Voth DNA ::points out the second slide:: compared with Ancient Earth Hadrosaur DNA, it is almost certain that your species descended from the Hadrosaurs on Earth.
(22:13:36) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::pauses for the information to sink in..::
(22:13:43) CO_CaptHarper: :: watches the Voth for their reactions to this news ::
(22:15:23) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::lets the viewer cycle through the several matches of DNA that were found between the two species::
(22:15:52) Cpt_Jaspir: :: looks excitedly from Tailor to the images presented. He takes a deep breath of finality and nods to his two companions. Gunra nods back. All three seem pleased. Jaspir smiles at Tailor, then at Harper :: CMO/CO: Thank you. This is astonishing news. It will mean so much to our people when we return home and give them this information!
(22:18:24) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Sighs to himself as he closes up another panel, looking around at all the work that had been done.:: Self: All a bit mundane now. Nothing more than some tender love from your crew is needed now. ::Pats the bulkhead.::
(22:20:54) CO_CaptHarper: Jaspir: I hope it is just the beginning of the reconnections between long-lost cousins that are being made today.
(22:21:08) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Computer* Moving the object revealed no new information. The metalwork dates to about the same time frame as the ancient Gencodian structures. :: lightly raps on the shell to see if she can determine how thick it is ::
(22:21:14) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Types a command into a nearby console.:: Self: Give me a purr. ::Monitors Mesmir's energy flow, listening to her warp core.::
(22:24:35) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Computer* Object is impervious to scans. Metallic shell may be quite thick. I see nothing else that can be done with the sphere's exterior that would be productive. :: stands back and ponders her options ::
(22:24:36) Cpt_Jaspir: :: moves to the nearest person, who happens to be Tailor, his arms wide :: CO/CMO: Cousins, yes! Then we should treat each other as family! You are both my new sisters!
(22:25:08) Cpt_Jaspir: Thorkin and Gunra> :: look at each other, amused ::
(22:25:31) CO_CaptHarper: :: beams at Jaspir, not having the heart to tell him that she's not from Earth ::
(22:26:03) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: grins, watching Jaspir, happy about all the happiness ::
(22:26:11) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::smiles, and her cheeks flush lavender:: Jaspir: You're welcome, and I'd be honored to call you brother.
(22:27:09) Cpt_Jaspir: :: hugs Tailor, but doesn't linger awkwardly and hurries over to hug Harper :: All: Sisters! Warm-blooded sisters, but sisters nonetheless!
(22:27:42) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::grins and gives Jaspir a hug in return:: (22:28:56) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *XO* Commander, Wright here. I've examined the exterior of the object - the metal shell is perfectly smooth and impervious to scans. I don't know that I can learn anything else without cutting the thing open. What are my orders?
(22:29:16) CO_CaptHarper: :: gives Jaspir a warm hug :: As would I!
(22:30:02) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CSO* Stand by. We'll be with you in a moment.
(22:32:07) Cpt_Jaspir: :: moves from Harper to Kuari and stops :: XO: Eh...well, you're not from Earth, but friend of sisters! That works for me.
(22:32:13) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Goes through an array of power settings, doing quick on the spot diagnostic, before the core finally sparks into life, with a yellowy-green tinge.::
(22:33:12) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: grins back as Jaspir refrains from trying to hug her, still happy to be included ::
(22:33:50) CO_CaptHarper: Jaspir: Neither am I, but I am from nearby Earth. Perhaps your ancestors stopped on my world as they traveled across the galaxy.
(22:33:54) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Taps commbadge.:: *CO*: Ilaihr to the Captain. Repairs appear to be complete. The warp core has lit up, and Mesmir hums with life once more.
(22:35:27) Cpt_Jaspir: :: looks apologetic :: CO: Forgive me! You look so...similar. Yes, perhaps. So! We should celebrate. Perhaps you could visit us after we spread the word! You would be most welcome!
(22:35:56) CO_CaptHarper: :: grins as her commbadge chirps and Ilaihr's good news comes through :: ENG: Splendid, lieutenant! I am sure that her captain is thrilled to hear it, as well.
(22:37:00) Cpt_Jaspir: :: shakes his head in awe :: It's fate that we have met today, in a place our two quadrants meet. You have rescued us, and we have learned we are related.
(22:37:22) Cpt_Jaspir: :: raises his voice :: *ENG* Thank you, Mr. Ilaihr! We greatly appreciate your help!
(22:38:54) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: *Jaspir*: It was nothing at all captain. She seems quite content now. ::Pats the bulkhead once more, slowly making his way to the collective beamout site.:: She is a fine ship.
(22:41:28) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: finds a moment to interrupt, moving close to Harper's ear :: CO: Wright has studied the object. She wants to know what to do next.
(22:42:37) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::sighs happily, glad the news was received well by the Voth::
(22:43:13) CO_CaptHarper: :: leans back to Kuari, speaking quietly :: XO: Tell her not to cut into it. :: snickers ::
(22:44:12) CO_CaptHarper: Jaspir: It is my intent to leave a few hyper-subspace communications relays here. :: offers a hopeful smile :: I hope that we can build from this fortuitous meeting between our peoples and continue our relations.
(22:45:31) XO_LCdr_Kuari: :: smiles and excuses herself to the far corner of the room :: *CSO* Kuari to Wright. We're finishing up with the Voth in the conference room. There hasn't been a decision about what to do next with the object, although Kate's telling you not to cut into it.
(22:45:42) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Hums to himself as he get to the beamout site.:: *Atlantis*: One to beam up.
(22:46:07) Cpt_Jaspir: :: bows his head :: CO: As do I.
(22:46:51) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *XO* Well, I didn't mean I was going to ACTUALLY cut into it, I just meant that I couldn't learn more unless I DI... :: trails off :: ... Understood. Shall I wait here, then?
(22:48:16) XO_LCdr_Kuari: *CSO* We'll come down and join you to have a look when we're done here. Stay if you want, I'm not sure how long it will be. I'll have Kate comm you when we're on our way.
(22:49:14) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *XO* Understood, Commander, Wright out.
(22:49:43) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: sighs while regarding the sphere with disappointment :: Self: I hate getting into a clean suit for nothing.
