(21:18:27) CO_CaptHarper: :: carrying a cup of coffee, she makes her way out onto the bridge from the ready room, having dealt with the morning paperwork :: XO: Good morning, Commander!
(21:18:50) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: looks up, realizes she means the other Commander, looks back down ::
(21:19:48) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: steps off the Turbolift and onto the Bridge. He's ever his cheerful self. ::
(21:20:07) CO_CaptHarper: :: notes Wolfe's entrance :: CTO: Good morning, Major!
(21:20:17) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: lying on her seat to better check on the morning reports, looks up at Harper's entrance :: CO: Good morning, Captain!
(21:20:39) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: :: already at his station, bright at ready ::
(21:20:42) MED_Ens_Acacia: ::arrives on the bridge via turbolift, offering a smile and a nod as she enters and sees the jovial mood:: All: Good morning, everyone!
(21:20:45) CO_CaptHarper: XO: I trust that the nebula survey went well and that we can depart?
(21:20:53) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: stifles a yawn as she flips through operational reports ::
(21:20:55) CO_CaptHarper: MED: Good morning, Ensign!
(21:21:03) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks up as he's checking into his console. He speaks flatly. :: CO: Captain. :: and he looks back down.
(21:21:10) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: finishes straightening her tunic before stepping on the TL :: TL: Bridge.
(21:21:30) SCI2_ENS_Worth: :: William steps onto the bridge, quickly downs the last of his coffee, and heads towards the Data Analysis Station. He does not say a word to anyone, and has a tired look on his face ::
(21:21:55) XO_Cdr_Kuari: CO: Yes, nothing unusual to report. Scans complete, ready to move on.
(21:22:20) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: mumbles a weary greeting to Ensign Worth ::
(21:22:43) CO_CaptHarper: XO: Splendid! Make the ship ready for slipstream flight. NAV: Warp one.
(21:22:47) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: the TL deposits her on the bridge, and she takes the secondary tactical console ::
(21:23:04) MED_Ens_Acacia: ::takes her place at a scanner station, keeping an eye on biosigns within the ship. She doesn't seem too worried.::
(21:23:18) SCI_Ens_Jude: :: walks in from turbolift, and take her place at her console ::
(21:23:30) SCI2_ENS_Worth: CSO: Morning Commander.
(21:23:31) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Warp one, aye. :: presses the button and checks on their slipstream solution ::
(21:23:49) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: arc her neck towards Wolfe :: CTO: Configure shield geometry for slipstream flight, and raise shields.
(21:24:10) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: makes a final assessment of the shields before beginning configuration. XO: Aye, Commander. Shields up, and geometry configured for slipstream flight in 3... 2... 1... Mark.
(21:24:12) CSO_Cdr_Wright: *Shipwide* All hands, prepare for slipstream flight. :: somewhat monotonously ::
(21:24:14) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Neither the warp button, nor the shields button, do anything when pressed.
(21:24:29) MED_Ens_Acacia: ::grabs two handholds, bracing ehrself::
(21:24:49) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: Self: Huh.
(21:25:08) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: notes the readings on her console and an eyebrow goes up ::
(21:25:09) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: :: looks confused, fingers gliding across his console, trying to figure out what is wrong ::
(21:25:29) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: looks over at Navarro with a question on her face ::
(21:25:40) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: searches through his console again, everything on his end LOOKING normal. ::
(21:25:44) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: No response from the warp engines, ma'am.
(21:25:51) MED_Ens_Acacia: ::looks back, brow furrowed. She slowly stands back up::
(21:25:52) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Or shields.
(21:25:55) SCI_Ens_Jude: :: eyebrow perks up :: Self: What the hell?
(21:25:57) SCI2_ENS_Worth: :: William looks for any anomalies in the surrounding area that could have had an effect on he ship ::
(21:26:09) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: looks to Navarro, confused, then checks the readings on her console ::
(21:26:10) CO_CaptHarper: :: looks quizzically between Navarro and Wolfe :: ENG: Lt. Ilaihr, what is going on?
(21:26:19) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: I can't get power, Captain.
(21:26:33) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: hesitates, then... ::
(21:27:36) CSO_Cdr_Wright: *Shipwide* All hands, please disregard previous announcement until further notice.
(21:28:15) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Enters some commands into his console, bringing up a diagnostic of the navigation and propulsion systems.:: CO: Unsure... standby....
(21:29:07) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: requests immediate updates on operational reports ::
(21:29:11) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: secures his console from slipstream configuration. ::
(21:29:41) CO_CaptHarper: :: puts her coffee down and wanders over toward the engineering officers ::
(21:29:58) SCI2_ENS_Worth: All: We’re not in any sort of anomaly... it’s just the nebula. And the readings show this is... a normal nebula
(21:30:04) SCI2_ENS_Worth: Nothing outstanding
(21:31:01) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Hums to himself, resting his hand on the console; feeling Atlantis.:: CO: Power is not making it to the slipstream generator, or the warp coils or the deflector array...
(21:31:15) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: is awake now ::
(21:31:17) CO_CaptHarper: ENG: So... where is it going instead?
(21:32:06) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CO: I do not not know. Tracing... ::Types more commands into the console.::
(21:32:47) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: Operations reports confirm what Lieutenant Ilaihr is reporting. There's nothing unusual in the night reports.
(21:33:07) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The ship seems quieter as the environmental systems shut down, except for basic life support.
(21:33:08) XO_Cdr_Kuari: CO/CSO: No, nightshift reports normal.
(21:33:32) SCI2_ENS_Worth: :: has a bad feeling about this ::
(21:33:49) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::His antennae twitch.:: Self: Interesting...
(21:33:52) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: perks her ears at the unusual quiet, easily detectable with the normal sounds missing as systems shut down ::
(21:33:54) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: tilts her head slightly as the familiar hum of the systems grows quieter. This is... a most unusual situation ::
(21:34:05) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: tries to catch Kuari's eye to share a troubled look ::
(21:34:15) MED_Ens_Acacia: ::looks up, eyes widening::
(21:34:16) CO_CaptHarper: :: looks up toward the ventilation systems with a frown ::
(21:35:06) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: looks at Wright :: Bridge: Systems are shutting down. What is going on?
(21:35:10) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: watches as power dwindles from his weapons along with everything else. ::
(21:35:16) SCI2_ENS_Worth: :: keeps analyzing the nebula... sees the same data ::
(21:35:40) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: leaps off her chair and begins sniffing around the Bridge ::
(21:36:13) CO_CaptHarper: ENG: Mr. Ilaihr... was that life support?
(21:36:25) SCI2_ENS_Worth: Self: nothing... what in hell
(21:36:34) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: hurriedly taps out a quick message to the science lab to keep the eggs warm despite power failure and asks for an acknowledgement, apparently more worried about science than life support ::
(21:37:36) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Sniffs the air.:: CO: No. But several of the environmental systems did.
(21:37:37) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: receives a reply :: XO: Internal communications appear to still be active. :: looks over at Worth :: As do external sensors.
(21:37:59) MED_Ens_Acacia: CO: No casualty reports so far...
(21:38:29) SCI2_ENS_Worth: CSO: Unless the feedback from the sensors are frozen... and they’re offline
(21:38:29) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::His antennae twitch some more.:: CO: Humidity and temperature are rising though.
(21:39:06) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Keeps trying to trace the route of the power drain.::
(21:39:14) CO_CaptHarper: :: takes a moment to process that :: ENG: If we cannot dissipate our heat, we will toast.
(21:39:23) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: scans the exterior of the vessel, looking for anything out of the ordinary ::
(21:39:38) SCI2_ENS_Worth: CO: Captain, I’m probably not qualified enough to ask this, but I think it would be a good time to remember how many EVA suits the Atlantis has on board. You know, just in case.
(21:40:06) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CO: Indeed. ::Gives a genial smile.::
(21:40:50) SCI_Ens_Jude: :: keeps tapping console, looking for ANYTHING :: Self: I swear, if this turns into Voyager 2.0...
(21:40:56) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: dashes off a message to her quarters, sending instructions to stay put and call for help if needed ::
(21:41:13) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The temperature starts to rise a few degrees as the heat generated by our systems is unable to be dealt with.
(21:41:32) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: Self: Is it the nebula... is there a hidden ship... oooh potential an nth dimensional manifold... ::Chuckles.:: Have to find the source.
(21:41:43) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: watches the readout from her scan of the exterior, paying special attention to some readings that seem to be out of place ::
(21:42:11) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: while the rise in temperature is hardly an issue, the change in humidity is now slightly uncomfortable ::
(21:42:17) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO/XO: I scanned the ship's exterior, and I'm getting some abnormal readings... but I can't seem to figure out what the problem is.
(21:42:26) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: sniffs all around, but can only detect the changes in air circulation and temperature. She returns to the center of the Bridge, but she's still too much on alert to lie down on her chair ::
(21:42:41) SCI2_ENS_Worth: CSO: We need to make sure our sensors are online... I can’t tell if this is a feedback loop or the actual, current readings
(21:43:12) CO_CaptHarper: :: turns away from Ilaihr and strides quickly to the Ops console to look at the readings :: CSO: That is all we have to go on, so far.
(21:43:31) CSO_Cdr_Wright: SCI2: Internal diagnostics come up fine, but your point is valid.
(21:44:39) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: looks up at Kate :: CO: All I can tell is that something is off. I wish I had more, but I'm working on it.
(21:45:18) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: messages nurses through the console, directing them to quarters of a lifesign with conerning readings ::
(21:45:19) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Would more power help? :: wondering if we can even do that ::
(21:45:29) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: scans the region, searching based on Ilaihr's thoughts. ::
(21:46:03) SCI2_ENS_Worth: Self: we need to figure out how to get more info...
(21:46:13) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Turns to Razyn.:: ENG2: Dear boy, I will need you to take over tracing this power drain. Whether within the ship or beyond it, there will be a region of the ship most affected...
(21:46:26) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: It can't hurt. I'd also recommend using the old analogue technique of looking out any strategically placed windows to see what we can see with our eyes.
(21:46:38) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The temperature has risen another few degrees.
(21:46:59) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ENG2: The point where the straw meets the juice, if you will...
(21:47:01) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: subconsciously hangs her jaw a little and begins to pant ::
(21:47:07) SCI2_ENS_Worth: :: William cocks his head and stands up ::
(21:47:10) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: ENG: Rightio. Self: R-rightio? The heck? :: fingers glide across console as he gets started on tryign to find the source of the power drain ::
(21:47:10) CO_CaptHarper: :: wheels around to address Kuari :: XO: Commander, have everyone aboard look out the nearest window.
(21:47:50) CO_CaptHarper: XO: And report anything strange that they can see.
(21:47:55) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO/XO: I'd focus on the ship itself and anything in close proximity.
(21:48:03) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: looks to Wright :: CSO: Open a shipwide comm.
(21:48:22) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: opens a shipwide channel and nods at Kuari ::
(21:48:41) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Stands up, leaning into his cane, before straightening out his uniform. He brushes at his brow, and takes out his tricorder.::
(21:48:52) SCI2_ENS_Worth: CO: Captain... what about our hangar full of shuttles
(21:49:17) SCI2_ENS_Worth: I know we have a few that have relatively good scanning suites
(21:49:31) CO_CaptHarper: :: puts a finger into her collar and pulls it away from her skin :: SCI2: If there is something out there, they may be useful, along with the EVA suits you mentioned.
(21:50:00) XO_Cdr_Kuari: *shipwide* Attention all hands. There is a power drain affecting the ship. Sensors are showing nothing unusual. Everyone is ordered to...look out a window...and if anything unusual is observed, report it immediately to the Bridge. Kuari out.
(21:50:06) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: tilts her head ever so slightly at the ensign’s suggestion. He does have a good point ::
(21:50:17) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: openes the space under the medical console, rifling around inside and pushing aside bandages to grab the water bottles in the back. She stands, and begins handing a bottle to each officer. ::
(21:50:29) SCI_Ens_Jude: :: looks at Worth, then to the captain :: CO: I'd volunteer to go out on the shuttles to do scans that way.
(21:51:05) CO_CaptHarper: :: takes the water bottle, her hot coffee forgotten :: MED: Thank you.
(21:51:24) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Sighs, shuffling around the bridge, seeing if the tricorder can be any help.::
(21:51:28) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: It may be worth considering that we shouldn't send any vessels out to potentially become disabled if we can avoid it. Not until we have no other choice.
(21:51:35) TAC_LCdr_TLira: CO: The Sharks are, as always, ready should they be needed, Captain. :: declines the water bottle, it should go to those more in need of it ::
(21:51:49) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: takes her bottle from Acacia and stuffs it into her pouch, still panting ::
(21:52:02) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: That is the reason I have not given the launch order yet. TAC: Thank you.
(21:52:20) CSO_Cdr_Wright: MED: I'm not sure if the replicators are online, but if so... maybe cold packs? :: takes the water with gratitude ::
(21:52:30) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: continues his search, pausing to take the water bottle proffered to him. ::
(21:53:06) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The temperature continues to rise, now at 47C.
(21:53:20) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: We could perhaps launch a probe to be our eyes.
(21:53:23) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ENG2: All rivers flow to... ::Goes all faint.:: All rivers flow to the sea...
(21:53:28) SCI2_ENS_Worth: CTO, CSO, CO: Well, we have to do something. Probes
(21:53:35) MED_Ens_Acacia: CSO: We'd need a whole lot of them, which would mean a whole lot of power. For now, nurses have water like this at stations around the ship, but... We need to do something, I can only give you band-aids for shipwide heat.
(21:53:52) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Launch a probe and keep it nearby.
(21:53:58) SCI2_ENS_Worth: :: Looks at the CSO and grins:: Exactly
(21:54:04) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: notes that the temperature is now reaching familiar levels. Likely very dangerous for those species not used to desert environments ::
(21:54:42) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: uses her console to launch a speedy probe while racking her brain for her brief studies in chemical heat transfer ::
(21:54:48) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: frowns :: CO: We shouldn't be generating heat with so many systems down. If anything, we should be cooling.
(21:55:41) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: grabs a rag, wetting it with ehr water ration and going to place it on Ilaihr's forehead ::
(21:56:17) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: :: rapidly taps console, still confused, going through every system ::
(21:56:24) CO_CaptHarper: XO: Space is very cold, of course, but lacks any medium to carry heat away.
(21:56:43) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: mopping her brow with her sleeve :: XO: Commander Kuari, I'm getting reports from people indicating some... dark dullness near the hull of the ship, it seems to be just out of view but I've gotten multiple reports.
(21:57:01) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Brushes the doctor back.:: MED: I will be fine my dear. ::Eyes go milky, as he reaches out with his mind.:: Must find the source....
(21:57:23) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: focuses sharply on Wright, her ears rising :: Any specific direction?
(21:57:53) CSO_Cdr_Wright: XO: I'm trying to map the reports to determine that, but I don't have anything conclusive yet.
(21:58:35) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CSO: Where...
(21:59:40) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: flaps her wings a few times and clings to the center of the ceiling, peering out the porthole ::
(22:00:35) CO_CaptHarper: :: finally breaks and takes off her uniform jacket ::
(22:01:19) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: blinks dizziedly, wiping her own forehead with the rag, taking that as invitation and unzipping her own jacket ::
(22:01:53) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The temperature of the bridge reaches 50C. Engineering has become uninhabitable.
(22:02:08) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: hastily removes her own jacket as well :: ENG: The reports are coming in from all over the ship... it seems to be everywhere, just out of view.
(22:02:28) SCI_Ens_Jude: :: also takes off her jacket, and plopping it on her chair, groaning in misery. she is not used to this heat ::
(22:02:29) CO_CaptHarper: XO/CSO: We need eyes out there.
(22:02:40) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: unzips the top two centimeters of her jacket, her one concession to the heat ::
(22:03:10) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Wipes at his face, directing his minds eye towards the darkness Wright speaks of.::
(22:03:21) CO_CaptHarper: :: catches the brief breeze from Kuari's wings ::
(22:03:34) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: attempts to not notice the rising temperature. ::
(22:03:42) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: taps her combadge, pausing a moment :: CO: Captain, reports of two crewmen unconscious.
(22:03:59) SCI2_ENS_Worth: :: CSO :: you said it’s all over the ship?
(22:04:00) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO/XO: The readings from the probes are all nominal. Should we not power down non-essential systems to reduce heat?
(22:04:25) CO_CaptHarper: :: guzzles her water bottle :: MED: Do whatever you can, though I know it will not be much.
(22:04:38) CSO_Cdr_Wright: SCI2: The reports are coming from all over the ship, the dark dullness reported is not actually touching the ship.
(22:04:53) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Bridge: :: calls down from the ceiling :: I see it! Some sort of haze is blotting out the stars...very close to the hull.
(22:05:02) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: taps ehr combadge again, occupying a corner and relaying insructions to the nurses ::
(22:05:08) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: CO: I have-have been looking in-in-into internal systems. I ddddddddd-do not detect anything.
(22:05:26) CO_CaptHarper: TAC: Commander, launch the Sharks.
(22:05:56) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Focuses his mind, as his body starts to give way to the intense heat.::
(22:05:57) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: gets something of a half written, cut off message from Taril, notes the inconsistencies before flagging her quarters for medical attention. She must focus... she cannot, should not... :: CO: Aye, Captain. :: is grateful for the distraction and sends out a message to the Sharks to get ready to launch ::
(22:05:58) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: orders the probe to fly around where it's visible from a nearby window ::
(22:06:35) SCI2_ENS_Worth: CSO, CO, XO: ::still trying to generate a solution:: Maybe it’s acting as an insulator
(22:06:40) CO_CaptHarper: ENG2: Thank you, Ensign.
(22:06:42) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: slips from the ceiling, the interior structure difficult to grip, and lands on the floor fairly gently, momentarily giving those nearby some moving air ::
(22:06:58) SCI2_ENS_Worth: That black stuff could be on us like a blanket while we try to dispense heat?
(22:07:04) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> *sighs and cancels her holodeck climbing program*
(22:07:15) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: locks her console and moves to the turbolift, checking her PADD as she goes ::
(22:07:21) CSO_Cdr_Wright: SCI2: I considered that as well, but how did it disrupt our power distribution?
(22:07:25) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: secures the helm and enters the TL with T'Lira ::
(22:07:46) TAC_LCdr_TLira: TL: Launch bay.
(22:07:55) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> Self: Not like the damn thing was loading anyway. :: lopes off to the launch bay ::
(22:07:57) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CO: Captain... permission to take a shuttle to the anomaly. ::Speak is staggered.::
(22:08:39) SCI2_ENS_Worth: CSO: oh, well... uh... I don’t know.
(22:08:40) CO_CaptHarper: ENG: What anomaly, lieutenant?
(22:09:00) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: apparently attempting to simply ignore the heat away ::
(22:09:07) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks up from his console at Ilaihr ::
(22:09:25) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: would crack a joke about the heat if he weren't in a turbolift with a Vulcan ::
(22:09:43) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: steps over to the nearest window and observes the probe ::
(22:09:45) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: enters the launch bay and heads straight for the locker room to gear up ::
(22:10:37) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: does likewise, and as soon as his flight suit is on, he punches the cooling up to max ::
(22:10:40) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: All: We must. ::Eyes flicker between blue and the milky they show when he is extensively using his powers, before he collapses to the floor; his Aenar physiology not meant for this heat.::
(22:11:17) XO_Cdr_Kuari: CSO: :: panting, now open-mouthed with her tongue lolling :: Could the haze be ignitable? Either that, or we need to somehow move out of the haze.
(22:11:33) CO_CaptHarper: MED: Ensign, see to him! :: frowns with concern as Ilaihr falls ::
(22:11:35) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: after suiting up, she makes her way to her fighter to run checks and run over a brief for the pilots before she informs them of the situation ::
(22:11:59) CSO_Cdr_Wright: XO: I was thinking of ways to dissipate the haze. Have we attempted to move at impulse?
(22:12:37) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: runs ehr tricorder over Ilaihr as she places the rag on his forehead. She changes the tricorder's wand to a light, shining it in his eyes for responsiveness ::
(22:12:39) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: CO: P-p-p-permission to check the ship circuitry man-manually?
(22:12:46) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The bridge is up to 53C.
(22:12:52) CO_CaptHarper: ENG2: Granted.
(22:12:55) SCI2_ENS_Worth: All: Well a big step would be checking if that stuff is alive or n-not
(22:13:08) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Mouth moves, as if he's chanting something, whilst making hand gestures.::
(22:13:13) SCI2_ENS_Worth: :: William is getting a little woozy ::
(22:14:01) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: :: leaves the bridge, to go check on various circuitry ::
(22:14:03) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: runs over to try the replicator for a cold pack ::
(22:14:06) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: finishes her check and opens a channel to the pilots :: *Sharks* Check in.
(22:14:23) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: notes Ilaihr's condition with momentary alarm, but attempts to focus on a solution instead ::
(22:14:25) CO_CaptHarper: :: looks around and finds Worth :: ENG2: Ensign, get to the conference room and replicate as much ice water as you can carry, and bring it to us.
(22:14:33) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: hopping into her cockpit after a hasty pre-flight :: *Sharks* Jester's ready.
(22:14:46) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: powering up his fighter :: *Sharks* Zorro's ready.
(22:15:31) SCI2_ENS_Worth: :: Looks at the Captain wearily ::
(22:15:45) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> :: hops into her fighter shortly after Suzuki :: *Sharks* Spitfire, ready.
(22:15:46) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: presses the buttons frantically, fighting with the machine, and retrieving a cold pack as spoils. She scuttles back over, rubbing it down Ilhair's neck ::
(22:15:47) SCI2_ENS_Worth: CO: Me? Sorry, I thought
(22:15:56) SCI2_ENS_Worth: Never mind, right away ma’am
(22:15:58) CO_CaptHarper: SCI2: Go, Ensign. Please.
(22:16:21) SCI_Ens_Jude: :: stands up from her chair, and paces, fanning herself ::
(22:16:31) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO/XO: The Sharks are almost ready to launch.

Such an anomaly has been noted, a haze of sorts clinging to the hull. We are to investigate. We launch in thirty seconds.
(22:18:13) CO_CaptHarper: :: notes the empty chair and walks over the helm and checks :: XO: It is.
(22:18:25) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> *Sharks* Aye.
(22:18:42) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: returns to the replicator, continuing to try and get it to shunt enough power to give them cold packs ::
(22:18:58) TAC_LCdr_TLira: *CSO* Atlantis, Sharks are ready to launch, awaiting clearance.
(22:19:21) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: Sharks are requesting clearance to launch.
(22:19:22) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: *Sharks* Understood.
(22:19:31) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: By all means.
(22:19:41) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: Self: Darmok on the ocean...
(22:20:01) CSO_Cdr_Wright: *Sharks* Sharks, you are go for immediate launch. Fly safely out there and let us know what you see.
(22:20:14) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: brings a cold pack to the Captain next ::
(22:20:32) CO_CaptHarper: :: doesn't even bother to sit at the useless helm, and takes the cold pack gratefully :: MED: Thank you. See to everyone else.
(22:20:43) SCI2_ENS_Worth: :: Worth runs out of the bridge and to the conference room. Always attempting to go above and beyond, he contacts Ensign Acacia ::
(22:20:43) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: Self: Chenza at court, the court of... silence...

(22:20:59) CO_CaptHarper: :: tugs again at her collar, wondering who the hell decided their uniforms had to be turtlenecks ::
(22:21:01) TAC_LCdr_TLira: *CSO* Acknowledged, Atlantis. Launching now. :: lifts her fighter ever so slightly off the deck and angles it towards the exit, gunning it ::
(22:21:15) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: shoots out of the launch bay and forms up ::
(22:21:35) SCI2_ENS_Worth: MED: Hey, w-what... what types of gasses are naturally produced in a persons body? Weird question I know, just please tell me.
(22:22:41) MED_Ens_Acacia: SCI; A few, carbon dioxide and methane most prominently. Why?
(22:23:40) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Once the Sharks get a look at the hull, it is coated in barely-visible, darkly-glowing, partially ethereal and partially gelatinous creatures, that are avoiding windows.
(22:23:51) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: pulls off her shirt to strip down to her undershirt, no longer caring about modesty or propriety ::
(22:24:16) SCI2_ENS_Worth: MED: Well, if you c-cooked up something that could compress the gasses in a person into a liquid temporarily, then that liquid should get a hell of a lot.......... ah, sorry, a hell of a lot cooler
(22:24:27) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: All: The beast at Tanagra...
(22:24:28) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The bridge hits 55C.
(22:24:30) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: flips around to get a view of the Atlantis and her eyes widen :: *CSO* Atlantis, I have a view of the anomaly...
(22:24:38) MED_Ens_Acacia: MAGI EDIT: SCI2: Oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, methande, and hydrogen. Why?
(22:24:59) CSO_Cdr_Wright: SCI2: Ensign. The ice water? Please?
(22:25:21) MED_Ens_Acacia: SCI2: Interesting... We have a few people in stasis fields already. That would be... On par with cryogenic freezing in terms of risk of tissue damage. It's risky.
(22:25:22) SCI2_ENS_Worth: :: Worth runs back into the bridge, carrying the water and cold packs, now talking to the Doc directly ::

(22:26:25) CO_CaptHarper: :: also gives up and doffs the damn turtleneck, having no culturally-mandated modesty to contend with, but has to finally abandon a bit more officer's decorum ::
(22:26:52) CSO_Cdr_Wright: *TAC* What do you see, Commander?
(22:27:12) CO_CaptHarper: :: takes the ice water like she's being given air after nearly drowning, finding it hard to concentrate ::
(22:27:18) SCI_Ens_Jude: SCI2: That... is just... death... :: pulls off all top layers of clothing besides the grey undershirt ::
(22:27:35) SCI2_ENS_Worth: MED: Listen, I know it’s risky but if people start to die, it’s the best shot we got. I have no idea how to do it, you’d have to cook it up yourself
(22:27:55) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The bridge temperature is now 57C.
(22:27:58) TAC_LCdr_TLira: *CSO* There are creatures, attached to the hull. They appear to be purposely avoiding any chance of being spotted from within and are indeed of a haze-like visual appearance.
(22:28:12) SCI2_ENS_Worth: CO: Captain, do you concur? :: not realizing that she has no idea what they’re talking about::
(22:28:44) CO_CaptHarper: SCI2: What? :: then turns at hearing there are creatures on her ship ::
(22:28:48) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: eyes widen :: CO/XO: Captain, the Sharks report that there are creatures attached to the hull. *Sharks* I'm putting your comm feed on the Bridge speakers, Commander.
(22:28:48) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: Self: Callimas... C... C... Callimas at Bahar...
(22:28:49) MED_Ens_Acacia: SCI2: Listen, Ensign... I appreciate that you want to help, but I am not going to attempt to cryogenically freeze the crew with no equipment.'
(22:28:58) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: notices Harper undressing and, with nothing much else to do but think and observe, pulls off her own uniform, depositing it on her chair, panting rather hurriedly ::
(22:29:05) MED_Ens_Acacia: SCI: It's also... Well, too hot... To do that...
(22:29:21) SCI_Ens_Jude: :: snaps :: SCI2: Damnit, Worth, get all of us water already, or do I need to?
(22:29:33) CO_CaptHarper: :: wipes the sweat off her face with the discarded turtleneck, and wills herself to focus, but finally surrenders to the call to sit down in her chair ::
(22:29:39) TAC_LCdr_TLira: *Bridge* Copy. These creatures are clinging to the ship almost as if they were a second skin, as it were.
(22:29:46) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: is down to his underclothes ::
(22:29:57) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: blinks, rubbing her forehead :: Self: Wait... what?6

(22:31:21) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> *Sharks* We should pick 'em off!
(22:31:26) SCI2_ENS_Worth: ::faints to the floor with a crash, still wearing his full uniform::
(22:31:44) CO_CaptHarper: All: Calm down, everyone. We are all miserable. There is no need to— :: sees Worth fall, looks to Acacia ::
(22:31:50) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: grabs another cold pack, setting it under Worth's neck ::
(22:31:54) TAC_LCdr_TLira: *Sharks* Negative. We do not know how they would react or what their initial intention is. An attack now could worsen conditions aboard the ship.
(22:32:05) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: checks him with the same flashlight test for conscious responses ::
(22:32:09) SCI_Ens_Jude: :: runs to Worth, and unzips his outer uniform off ::

(22:32:25) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: smiles wryly and nods at Jude :: Thank you.
(22:32:25) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::His eyes glaze over, and he falls silent, as he finally loses consciousness.::
(22:32:31) CO_CaptHarper: All: They clearly want energy. Suggestions on getting them to go away?
(22:32:54) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: Ionize the hull?
(22:32:56) CO_CaptHarper: :: wipes uselessly at her face with nearby bits of discarded uniform ::
(22:32:57) XO_Cdr_Kuari: CO: Shut down the warp core.
(22:33:30) SCI_Ens_Jude: :: runs to the replicator, and gets an ice pack, running back to Worth and putting it on his neck ::
(22:34:01) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: goes back to the medical panel, pulling out stasis field generators. She first stoops by Ilaihr, deploying a medical stasis field over him ::
(22:34:02) CO_CaptHarper: :: looks to Kuari :: Restarting those is... tricky.
(22:34:43) XO_Cdr_Kuari: CO: Well I can't think of a way to overload them with energy, can you?
(22:34:47) SCI_Ens_Jude: :: after getting an ice pack on Worth, she returns to the replicator, getting more water for the bridge crew ::
(22:34:52) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: stumbles over to Worth, her hands shaking as she tries to remove his coat fully, but she can't muster the strength to lift his limbs. She stirs, nearly passing out, but manages to deploy a field over him as well. ::
(22:35:19) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: We could try to divert excess power to the hull plating and give them a little shock.
(22:35:20) CO_CaptHarper: XO: I cannot. Do it.
(22:35:29) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Do that, too.
(22:35:43) CSO_Cdr_Wright: XO: Mine first, since I need the power?
(22:35:53) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The bridge temperature is now 58C.
(22:36:06) SCI_Ens_Jude: :: looks over at Acacia, and mumbles :: Self: Gods damnit. :: she walks over to them, hands water to Acacia, and helping her take Worth's outer uniform off ::
(22:36:07) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: observes the creatures, attempting to discern any behavioral patterns or any behavior at all ::
(22:36:13) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: kicks off her shoes and socks ::
(22:36:20) XO_Cdr_Kuari: CSO: Do it.
(22:36:21) SCI2_ENS_Worth: :: Worth responds to Ensign Judes ice pack, almost like he knew it was her who put it on him. His eyes relaxed and his breathing slowed to a normal pace, as the stasis field was around him ::
(22:36:57) CSO_Cdr_Wright: *Sharks* I'm diverting power to the hull plating to give them a little shock. Please observe and tell me if it has any effect. ::madly tapping buttons ::
(22:37:16) TAC_LCdr_TLira: *Bridge* Acknowledged.
(22:37:31) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: limply pats Jude's shoulder, offering a pained smile as thanks. She makes her way, crawling, back to the medical panel to retrieve more stasis field generators as the casualties pile up ::

(22:37:53) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: waits a few moments for the hull to acquire sufficient charge ::
(22:38:19) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: Ready to zap on your orders, Captain.
(22:38:19) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: :: returns back to the bridge, after hearing about the creatures on the hull ::
(22:38:32) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Do it.
(22:38:47) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: looks from Wright to the dorsal porthole, watching ::
(22:38:51) CSO_Cdr_Wright: *Sharks* Discharging... NOW. :: presses the button ::
(22:39:12) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: observes the creatures for any effects ::
(22:39:13) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: leans on a console, chugging her water bottle and panting softly ::
(22:39:25) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Visually, the creatures seem to go... "fuzzy", disorting, as the energy courses through them.
(22:40:06) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: carefully notes the changes :: *Bridge* There was a visible change in appearance, they distorted briefly.
(22:40:16) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Bridge temperature is now 59C.
(22:40:22) SCI_Ens_Jude: :: drinks an entire water bottle in less than five seconds, exhaling in relief ::
(22:40:35) CSO_Cdr_Wright: *Sharks* But they did not detach or move?

(22:41:10) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: quickly reionizes the hull as a last-ditch effort before giving up ::
(22:41:12) TAC_LCdr_TLira: *Bridge* Negative. There was no movement.
(22:41:19) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Give them more power.
(22:41:35) CO_CaptHarper: :: slumps in her chair ::
(22:41:57) TAC_LCdr_TLira: *Bridge* If they are indeed siphoning the ship’s power, it is likely that the charge is doing nothing more than... feeding them.
(22:42:03) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: Aye, Captain. :: changes tactics mid-stride and unleashes a greater charge across the hull, letting it build up ::
(22:42:28) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: notes Harper slump with alarm, then looks to Wright ::
(22:42:29) CSO_Cdr_Wright: *Sharks* That could be the case, Commander, but we're going to give it one more try.
(22:42:40) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The creatures go fuzzy again, and a few leave, satiated.
(22:43:05) SCI_Ens_Jude: :: goes back over to her console, listening in to the conversation between Harper and the Sharks ::
(22:43:13) TAC_LCdr_TLira: *Bridge* Copy. :: glances up :: Movement detected, Commander. A number of the creatures have departed.
(22:43:39) CSO_Cdr_Wright: *Sharks* Well. Let's see how they like this. :: presses the button again ::
(22:43:48) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: grabs a cold pack, and tries to rise, but can't manage it. She places the pack on her own neck, clenching her teeth and summoning all her willpower ::

(22:45:36) TAC_LCdr_TLira: *Bridge* More of the creatures have left, Commander.
(22:45:46) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: notes Harper's eyes closed, and orders Wright, quite unnecessarily :: CSO: Do it... :: pants :: ...again!
(22:46:12) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: gives up on walking entirely. She crawls over to the captain, foregoing the flashlight test and just deploying a medical stasis field around her as well, before laying down herself to preserve her energy ::
(22:46:33) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: lies down on the floor ::
(22:46:39) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: so out of it, she simply complies, allowing a larger charge to build up and zapping once again ::
(22:47:12) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The remainder of the creatures seem to have had their fill of our power, and detach, returning once again to the emptiness of space.
(22:47:41) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> *Sharks* Oh yeah, take that!
(22:47:41) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: gives a satisfied little nod :: *Bridge* The last of the creatures have left, sir.
(22:47:54) SCI_Ens_Jude: :: sees Harper, then Acadia next to her :: Self: I am going to stand up now, damnit :: grabs armrests, and shoves herself up, grunting like an old person, before walking over to the replicator, replicating cold towels for everyone on the bridge ::

(22:50:44) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: Captain, the -- ooh, nice towel.
(22:50:45) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Environmental controls respond, coming back online, but struggle under the sudden immense load of heat.
(22:51:35) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: leans over until she's lying on her side, still panting, her tongue rubbing the carpet, but she doesn't care ::
(22:52:22) CO_CaptHarper: :: the towel is rather fetching, but it is now warm and she's no longer dreaming of ice cream ::
(22:52:27) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: gasps, her eyes still half-open, her shaking hand finding her own forehead slowly ::

(22:52:51) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: XO: En-environmental controls fully-fully-fully running.
(22:53:27) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The familiar hum of the air circulation system returns to the background noise, and the temperature begins to drop.
(22:53:30) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: finally has had enough and slumps over his console ::
(22:53:41) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: thinks about smiling and responding with, "well done" but it seems like too much effort, so she just lies there and closes her eyes, waiting ::
