(21:20:54) CO_CaptHarper: :: flitting about the bridge from station to station, her brain switching between repairs and how to communicate with the bearded one ::
(21:21:02) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: looking impassively at her cards ::
(21:21:04) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: is at Tactical preparing for the next attack. ::
(21:21:36) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: stretches in his seat, playing it cool ::
(21:21:40) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: lies on her seat on the Bridge, studying reports from the last battle ::
(21:22:03) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: poring over the menu again, trying to unlock it's meaty secrets ::
(21:22:46) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: is at her console typing down ideas on how to talk to Beardy McBeardmane, striking out almost all of them after a second thought ::
(21:22:52) CO_CaptHarper: :: meanders to Tactical :: CTO: Is that phaser bank back up yet?
(21:23:10) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: has found refuge in a science lab, sorting out the after action report to file it and be done. It’s quiet in here, which is something of a relief and very conducive to getting this done quickly ::
(21:25:37) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: watching :: CO: Engineering says it should be back up in two minutes.
(21:26:55) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Is at the ENG console, silently monitoring the bridge, maintaining repair team prioritisations ::
(21:26:57) CO_CaptHarper: CTO: Good. :: looks from the console up to the towering Major :: Any change of getting improvements in our targeting sensors? Those swarms of drones are hard to track.
(21:27:19) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: finishing up checking over a bunch of patients for the evening, having seen a few scrapes and bruises. She hands the last of the paperwork off to a nurse to go check out happenings on the bridge ::
(21:28:40) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: T'Lira's givern them quite the upgrade. They're already pretty exact. The problem with the drones is that they move faster than we can get a lock. If they had another half meter of width in any direction, we'd be able to hit them much more easily.
(21:30:35) CO_CaptHarper: CTO: ::nodding :: We will launch the Sharks again to assist, regardless. :: as much as she hates sending them out there against drones ::
(21:31:18) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: Suzuki: I must know. Whatcha got, Jester?
(21:31:51) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: rotates an ear towards Harper and Wolfe ::
(21:32:09) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: That would be my advice as well.
(21:32:36) SCI_LtJG_Jude: Self: We could beam them something from the menu? No, no that's stupid. :: she groans, and covers her face with her hands ::
(21:34:04) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: exits the turbolift, returning to her console and opening the records to edit her notes ::
(21:34:18) CO_CaptHarper: CTO: Carry on then, Major. :: wanders over to Sci/Ops ::
(21:34:25) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: What is for dinner? :: smirks ::
(21:35:28) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: favors Kate with an expression indicative of a distinct lack of amusement :: CO: I just ... wish I could've gotten something more useful.
(21:36:29) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: I think it is useful. :: purses her lips, thinking a moment ::
(21:37:08) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: This, plus what we have seen, tells me that I may have been too friendly in my greetings.
(21:37:10) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> NAV: You are calling, then? :: lays her cards down on the table :: Two pair, Jacks and sevens.
(21:37:28) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: Oh? How do you figure?
(21:39:19) CO_CaptHarper: :: pinches her chin :: CSO: An extremely carnivorous menu, plus opening the comm long enough for us to say hi before closing it again. It makes me wonder if they value aggression.
(21:40:29) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: In that case, why bother opening the comm at all?
(21:40:32) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: laughs and throws his cards in :: Jester: Nada. I just had to see, with you betting like that.
(21:41:14) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Maybe I was just too nice, and perceived as weak?
(21:41:27) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> :: looks sourly at her cards, too stubborn to fold, and flops her losing cards down on the table ::
(21:41:38) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: looks around the table to see if anyone has defeated her ::
(21:42:33) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Keeps moving repair teams around, as requirements demand; whilst setting up bypasses for damaged systems.::
(21:42:50) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: Still, I'm not sure why they'd open the comm in the first place, but it's worth a try.
(21:43:34) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: It is all we have to go with. Keep up the efforts in trying to get break into their systems.
(21:43:56) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: Aye, Captain, as soon as they come into range.
(21:44:27) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: scoops her winnings toward her :: All: Another hand?
(21:44:43) CO_CaptHarper: :: makes her way back to engineering :: ENG: How is my ship, Lieutenant? :: with a warm smile ::
(21:45:23) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: looks at his dwindling pile of chips :: It is a good thing we are playing for these and not clothes. :: chuckles, then shuffles the cards ::
(21:46:03) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: the corners of her lips twitch up ever so slightly at Navarro ::
(21:46:22) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> Suzuki: Oh I'm still in, until we launch or I win.
(21:46:34) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: Dios mío, I think she almost smiled. :: deals the cards ::
(21:46:44) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::He seems vacant for a moment, before he seemingly zooms back in.:: CO: She is hurting Captain. Repairs are coming along well enough, but there is only so much the team can do in the time they had.
(21:47:25) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CO: Bypasses are in place, hull breaches are sealed.
(21:47:47) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CO: But she is hurting.
(21:47:51) CO_CaptHarper: :: her smile fades :: ENG: With any luck, we can avoid further damage. Keep up the good work.
(21:51:20) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: picks up her cards, expression unchanging ::
(21:51:55) CO_CaptHarper: :: ends up back at her chair ::
(21:53:30) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: looks at Harper questioningly as she arrives next to her ::
(21:54:02) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Nods, looking back to his console and continuing.::
(21:54:12) CO_CaptHarper: :: returns the look, hers hopeful :: XO: Any thoughts or ideas?
(21:56:16) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: shakes her head :: CO: Did I hear you say you're going to approach our next communication as a Klingon would?
(21:56:57) CO_CaptHarper: XO: Something like that. Demanding that they talk instead of asking, at least. :: shrugs :: They keep answering the comm, so they are looking for something out of us.
(21:57:54) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: places a decently-sized bet ::
(21:58:33) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: finally finishes the report and files it. Checks the logs and finds her pilots are all in one location. Usually such things bode ill... perhaps it would be best to ensure all is well ::
(21:59:00) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: places a moderate bet ::
(21:59:11) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: nods :: CO: Yes, it's worth a try.
(21:59:19) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Three frigates exit warp, the lead ship the one that's engaged us twice already, and two new ones.
(22:00:03) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: stands at the ready. ::
(22:00:16) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> :: looks at the other bets, glances at her cards, then shoves everything she has left into the pile ::
(22:00:56) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: Ash: All in, huh? I'll call. :: pushes his remaining chips in ::
(22:01:07) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: Three vessels exiting warp... :: immediately begins attempting to access their computers again ::
(22:01:22) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::opens the door to the 'lift, and enters onto the Bridge, going to her usual station::
(22:01:33) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: queries the computer as to the location of her pilots and goes off to find them ::
(22:01:35) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: looks at her cards and pushes her substantial pile into the center of the table ::
(22:01:38) CO_CaptHarper: CTO: Red alert. CSO: Hail them.
(22:01:41) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: perks up, looks to the viewscreen, then to her console ::
(22:01:58) CO_CaptHarper: XO: And it seems I get to try sooner than later. :: stands and Picard-maneuvers, working up her assertiveness ::
(22:02:27) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: whispers :: CO: Good luck!
(22:02:27) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: goes to Red Alert, though the klaxons and lights are the only difference ::
(22:02:35) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: hails them ::
(22:03:07) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: looks up at the red alert, but decides to continue what she was doing. She suspects they may be needed anyway ::
(22:03:19) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Beardo appears on the screen again, arms crossed, looking skeptically at Harper.
(22:03:32) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: looks up from her console and looks at the viewscreen ::
(22:03:42) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: looks up from her console as well, tense ::
(22:04:07) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> :: lays down her cards, one face card, the rest higher numbers, her face wearing an annoyed expression as she looks expectantly at the others ::
(22:05:24) CO_CaptHarper: :: her voice takes on its most Captainly authoritative tone as she addresses the Beard :: I am Captain Harper of the Atlantis. You will immediately engage with us in settling the dispute over this planet. Diplomacy or battle, your choice, but make it soon. I grow weary of this dance.
(22:05:58) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: lays down three queens ::
(22:06:39) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: finds her pilots engaged in some sort of game, and tries to make her entrance as quiet as possible. It would be rude to disturb them ::
(22:07:09) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: very calmly lays down an assortment of twos, threes, and fours ::
(22:08:00) CO_CaptHarper: :: stares defiantly at the screen, waiting for his answer ::
(22:08:43) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: He's not out yet, folks! :: collects the chips ::
(22:08:52) CO_CaptHarper: Beardo> :: pauses a moment, then nods approvingly :: Bold words, Captain. But can you back them up? We will see. :: cuts the comm ::
(22:09:05) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> :: sighs :: I suck at this game.
(22:09:16) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: shrugs in a friendly fashion before noting T'Lira standing there ::
(22:09:33) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Well. You got words.
(22:09:40) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: is trying to figure out exactly what game they are playing and just what the rules are. She is not familiar with human card games ::
(22:10:03) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: looks up at Suzuki's reaction to see T'Lira :: TAC: Ma'am. Care to join us?
(22:10:17) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: is targeted on the frigate to port, since it is the same one he was attacking before, judging by the damage patterns. He sends a message to Discovery's l;'
(22:10:18) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: looks at Harper in surprise ::
(22:10:32) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: Discovery's CTO to target the same place ::
(22:11:03) CO_CaptHarper: CTO/XO: That is an improvement, but we are still about to be in combat. :: sighs ::
(22:11:15) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: inclines her head :: NAV: No, thank you. I was merely ensuring that there was no trouble. It is my understanding that large gatherings of pilots usually results in some sort of discipline.
(22:11:28) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Hail them and ask if they'll run away when it gets too tough for them again.
(22:11:39) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: laughs :: All too true.
(22:12:08) CO_CaptHarper: CTO: Make them run away again as quickly as possible, please? I need to get to the next attempt at talking without anyone dying.
(22:12:14) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> :: grins mischeviously to herself ::
(22:12:26) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The frigates close and begin to launch swarms of drones.
(22:12:27) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: looks up at the red alert beacon :: CAG: Trouble?
(22:12:32) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: looks over at Wolfe :: CTO: If not, at least we have the big guns. :: shrugs, and looks back down at her console ::
(22:12:45) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> :: looks up :: Looks like.
(22:13:17) TAC_LCdr_TLira: Suzuki: I am uncertain. It is possible we will be required momentarily. Regardless, we will have an answer soon.
(22:13:22) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: With pleasure. :: gets word back from Discovery's CTO that they are ready to target the frigate's engines. ::
(22:13:59) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Both Federation ships are ready to dance.
(22:14:09) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Have the Sharks launch. CTO: Stand by, wait for their attack.
(22:14:49) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: pauses her hacking attempt :: *Sharks* Sharks, prepare for immediate launch. :: back to hacking ::
(22:14:58) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> There is our answer.
(22:15:28) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> :: scrambles for her helmet and jogs out to her fighter ::
(22:15:32) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: glances upwards for a moment :: Suzuki: Indeed. To your fighters, pilots. It would seem the enemy has returned.
(22:16:03) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: abandons cards and chips as he grabs his helmet and makes for his bird ::
(22:17:14) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The frigates open fire in a coordinated fashion, focusing their attacks first on Discovery.
(22:17:59) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: pulls her helmet out from under her chair and lopes out to the flight deck, swinging up into her waiting cockpit :: Fighter: ::quietly:: Did you miss me, Shinigami? It's time to work again.
(22:18:38) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: retrieves her helmet from her locker and returns to her fighter, running checks and ensuring all remains well ::
(22:18:51) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: boards the León, already powered up and ready to fly due to the standby status :: *Sharks* Zorro is ready.
(22:18:58) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> :: wonders if she could skip the checks this time since she had just been out, but dismisses the thought as she flips switches ::
(22:20:22) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> *Sharks* Jester is ready.
(22:21:00) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> *Sharks* Spitfire, ready.
(22:21:02) CO_CaptHarper: CTO: Return fire!
(22:21:23) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: opens fire with Discovery on the port Frigate's engines. He fires all photons and a quantum torpedo, as well as all facing phaser banks ::
(22:22:02) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: listens as her pilots check in and toggles the comms :: *CSO*: Sharks are go for launch.
(22:22:16) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: Sharks are ready to launch.
(22:22:33) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: They are go.
(22:22:50) CSO_Cdr_Wright: *Sharks* Sharks are go for immediate launch. Stay safe out there.
(22:22:52) CO_CaptHarper: Port Frigate> :: seemingly caught by surprise by the intensity of the two Federation attackers, it breaks away, exposing the center ship ::
(22:23:36) TAC_LCdr_TLira: *CSO* Copy. Launching now. :: lifts her fighter off the desk and angles to speed out of the hangar ::
(22:23:38) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: continues his attack on the Port and sends a message to Discovery to not let up ::
(22:23:39) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> :: lifts her fighter off the deck and shoots out into space in formation with her squadron, ready to mess up some drones ::
(22:24:02) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: takes off and speeds off into the black ::
(22:24:21) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: fires two more quantum torpedoes at the port frigate's engines ::
(22:24:52) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: Launches on Ash's wing, the consummate wingwoman ::
(22:24:55) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The three frigates turn their attentions to Atlantis, unleashing heavy coordinated fire while moving to shield the port frigate from weapons fire.
(22:25:02) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::sends sickbay the usual orders for red alert protocols, although she's quite sure it's well under control down there::
(22:25:26) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: forms up on T'Lira's wing, watching his CAG's six ::
(22:25:33) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Captain, keep me lined up with that frigate! :: keeps firing ::
(22:26:17) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: They are not warping away again!
(22:26:37) CO_CaptHarper: :: had moved to the helm earlier :: CTO: There is a bit of a maneuverability problem, but I will see what I can do.
(22:26:42) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: checks the sensors :: *Sharks* Focus on the drones. If you have an opening, target their engines, but the drones remain primary priority.
(22:27:53) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: sends to Discovery's CTO to take the same stance and work their way around the opposite side so the two ships flank from either side and work on opposite sites. Discovery finds an opening and fires a couple quantums into that frigate ::
(22:28:10) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> *Sharks* Understood. :: speeds into the fray, going for numbers ::
(22:28:19) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: I have... some kind of video.
(22:28:28) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: works on calculations for the moment he has an opening to fire. ::
(22:29:01) CO_CaptHarper: :: feints Atlantis in the direction of Discovery, then spins and floors it for the flanking maneuver::
(22:29:32) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: picks off a few nearby drones ::
(22:29:49) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: catches an opening and fires two quantums and four photons into his target. ::
(22:30:18) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> That particular frigate warps away.
(22:30:27) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: It appears to be some kind of... celebration? Festival? There's a lot of meat consumption, something that's either dancing or fighting... Not sure... and significant imbibing of probably intoxicating beverages.
(22:30:58) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: looks towards Wright, then slinks from her chair towards Wright's console and stands, towering over her and peering at the video ::
(22:31:10) CO_CaptHarper: CO: We have something in common, at least. :: as she fights with the controls to make the starship do things it is not really meant to ::
(22:31:28) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: spins her fighter between a pair of drones, shooting them down ::
(22:31:29) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: slams his fists on his console :: Self: Fucking... :: targets and sends coordinates to Discovery for the center frigate's engines. This time they're not taking no for an answer. shouts :: COWARDS!
(22:31:46) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Its drones pause a moment before associating to the other two frigates.
(22:31:51) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: she jumps in her seat at Wolfe's sudden shout ::
(22:32:10) CO_CaptHarper: CTO: Major, I appreciate your exuberance, but please.
(22:32:32) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: smiles wryly :: CO: I wasn't THAT loud.
(22:33:11) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: fires another volley of quantums into the center frigate's left engine, followed by phasers just for insult ::
(22:33:19) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: ignores Wolfe and studies the video on Wright's console ::
(22:33:57) CO_CaptHarper: :: puts Atlantis into a charging roll, planing into a climb to keep on the target ::
(22:34:27) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: ::Keeps on bypassing damaged systems, diverting power to weapons and shields as needed.::
(22:35:22) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::instinctively hangs on as the viewscreen seems to point in several different directions at once::
(22:36:02) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: continues with phasers on the engine until his torpedoes are ready to go again, with Discovery almost doubling the power he's slamming into them ::
(22:36:24) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: watches the viewscreen with rapt attention ::
(22:36:36) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The two remaining frigates put together another coordinated volley, hitting us hard in the neck of the ship, causing explosions on four decks.
(22:37:15) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: doesn't care what the viewscreen shows, but gets an opening and launches five quantums and double that in photons into the port engine of that frigate ::
(22:37:31) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: grips onto Wright's console as the Bridge shudders ::
(22:38:58) CO_CaptHarper: ENG: Damage report!
(22:39:21) CSO_Cdr_Wright: I picked up the drones reassociating with the remaining frigates, for what that's worth.
(22:39:37) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The drones start to try to isolate the Sharks from each other, swarming individual Mustangs.
(22:40:18) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> Self: I do not like this. :: evasives ::
(22:40:24) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: is not really having any of this, sticking close to her pilots ::
(22:40:25) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> :: gets a bad image on her sensors of being surrounded :: Self: Aw, hell.
(22:41:40) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: No no no you don't... :: trying to pull some elaborate flying to avoid being surrounded :
(22:42:06) ENG_Lt_Ilaihr: CO: Shields are down to 12%, we have hull breaches on decks 6, 7, 9 and 19. Minor damage to the forward phaser array. And the starboard nacelle my need repainting.
(22:42:13) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::starts getting alerts on her console; emergency medical help requested to the affected decks, and casualties starting to come into sickbay::
(22:44:13) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: presses a few buttons on the console rapidly, before walking quickly to the turbolift to head for the closest explosion site to triage ::
(22:45:25) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: having seen enough of the video and in favor of monitoring their damaged ship, jumps back over to her seat to tend to her own console ::
(22:45:35) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: calculates again for the next opening to fire on the most damaged remaining frigate. He watches as torpedo tubes are reloaded, and when 24 of them are ready to go he begins final calculations. ::
(22:45:35) CO_CaptHarper: ENG: I will try to shelter that side of the ship.
(22:46:05) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Can you do anything with that information? Disable the drones somehow?
(22:46:41) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: snorts at Ilaihr's painting remark ::
(22:47:04) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: I can.... maybe I can try to interrupt the link between the drones and the frigate. :: redirects her efforts to disrupting that comm link ::
(22:47:53) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: finds himself getting overwhelmed by drones, as they reappear faster than he can shoot them down :: *Sharks* I, uh, could use a little help here. My shields are going to fail any moment.
(22:48:48) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: was starting to stray, but reverses course and picks off the drones around Zorro ::
(22:49:19) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: tries to break free from the drones attempting to engulf her to go help Zorro, but has her hands full with her own ::
(22:50:44) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: ends up following her first patient to sick bay and getting stuck there as the casualties come in one after another. ::
(22:50:59) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Discovery lands a damaging volley on one of the frigates, and it jumps to warp.
(22:51:13) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> :: speeds towards the side of a ship, not sure which one, and shakes off some drones as she dangerously flies parallel to its hull ::
(22:51:22) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: checks her sensors again and her eyes narrow at how the drones are directly targeting them... she cannot simply order them to pull back... or perhaps she can. One by one... no, that would leave the last pilots overwhelmed... :: Sharks: Stay by your wingmates, if you must retreat, do so but return quickly.
(22:51:45) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: takes his next chance and with 24 torpedos ready to go, launches 10 quantum torpedoes and 14 photon torpeodos into the engine of the remaining frigate. ::
(22:51:55) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: *Sharks* Thanks for the assist, Sehlat. :: gets back on her wing ::
(22:52:28) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: CO: Cowards, Captain. Please tell them that's my name for them when they come back with four ships and want to hear us plead.
(22:52:50) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> The remaining frigate pulls all three ships worth of drones in close, and the drones absorb some of the torpedo fire as they are recalled. It then warps away.
(22:53:20) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: lightly hits her console in frustration, unable to sever the connection with the drones ::
(22:54:04) CO_CaptHarper: :: lets out a breath and leans her head back on the helm's headrest for a moment ::
(22:54:23) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: Self, out loud: Cowards.
(22:54:35) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> Self: That was closer than I would have liked. :: looks for Ash ::
(22:54:43) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: blinks as the drones retreat and the frigate warps away :: *Sharks* Return home, pilots, but stay prepared. :: ensures she collected adequate sensor data to submit for evaluation ::
(22:54:57) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> WOOOO!! :: takes a moment to realize she's still alive ::
(22:55:05) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: looks down at her console after glancing at Wolfe :: Self: Well, daaamn.
(22:55:26) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: makes for Atlantis's assault bay :: *Sharks* We need a better tactic to deal with that isolation they tried on us.
(22:55:33) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: stands down the red alert... again... but leaves the shields up. ::
(22:55:34) MED_Ens_Acacia: :: looks up at the monitor and finally sighs with relief as it finds her patient's heartbeat. She takes a moment to breathe, sends Tailor a message through the computer that says, "Everyone stable." and then gets back to work ::
(22:55:53) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> :: points towards Atlantis and throttles forward ::
(22:56:11) CO_CaptHarper: :: pulls Atlantis alongside Discovery again ::
(22:56:15) TAC_LCdr_TLira: *Sharks* Agreed. Submit any sensor data you collected to Sciences for review.
(22:57:28) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: closes her eyes for a moment, then begins monitoring the incoming post-battle reports ::
(22:57:33) CO_CaptHarper: :: stands, once the autopilot has station-keeping with Discovery enabled :: XO: Gather a damage and casualty report, Commander.
(22:57:47) XO_Cdr_Kuari: CO: Aye.
(22:57:50) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: trying to analyze the comm traffic between the drones and the frigates, looking for vulnerabilities ::
(22:58:42) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Send me that video you found, and find us a way to remove their drones from the fight.
(22:59:01) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: Aye, and I'm working on it, Captain.
(22:59:15) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: sends the video to CO/XO consoles ::
(22:59:27) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Thank you, and have the Sharks remain on standby.
(22:59:51) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: touches down on the bay floor and opens his canopy, thinking that was too close, but shrugs it off after a moment ::
(22:59:56) CSO_Cdr_Wright: *Sharks* Come home, but remain on standby, Sharks.
(23:00:31) TAC_LCdr_TLira: *CSO* Copy. :: lands her fighter and sits for a long moment, compiling her sensor data and sending it off ::
(23:00:48) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> :: lands safely inside the Assault Bay ::
(23:00:59) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: sends off his sensor data and CCs tactical, thinking that'd be of more use than science ::
(23:01:06) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: receives the sensor data, looking through it with hopes of finding some way to disrupt the drone connection ::
(23:01:08) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::sends a message back to Acacia - 'Well done, Doctor.'::
