(21:21:27) CaptHarper: :: having joined the away team on the surface, she's waiting outside the cave with great anticipation to see how this ends ::
(21:26:12) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Rides a top the galloping bear, as the other's let out a chant. The great bear - Nəme, following shortly behind.:: Bear: We must go faster.
(21:26:27) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: still trying to figure out if she can recalibrate her tricorder to see past the interference, but not having any luck ::
(21:28:22) CaptHarper: :: thinks she hears something from in the cave and perks up ::
(21:29:53) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: stands when she heard something from the cave, keeping a hand on her weapon ::
(21:30:09) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: joined the away team when the shift change happened, interested to see a bit more of the landscape before they left. She stood in front of the cave, hands on her hips, eyes idling over the forest ::
(21:31:23) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::is still monitoring the away team from the bridge, a cluster of foreign lifesigns surrounding Ilaihr's blinks into range, fast approaching the rest of the team::
(21:31:52) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Senses up ahead, the cage mouth about a hundred yards or so away, but they still need to travel up a corkscrew of tunnels. The chorus around him almost deafening.::
(21:32:24) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: has joined the away team and is staring at the entrance to the cave, eyebrows perked ::
(21:32:58) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: is so engrossed in her tricorder that she fails to notice the growing sound emanating from the mouth of the cave ::
(21:33:07) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: hears something from the cave, but keeps her attention on their surroundings. The cave is being well watched ::
(21:33:52) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: Bear: We are almost there. I can only hope my friends' minds are open.
(21:34:18) CaptHarper: :: growing concerned at the tone of the noises :: All: Security, be ready...
(21:35:04) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: looks over at the cave, putting her hand on her phaser in its holster casually ::
(21:35:12) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: moves her attention to the cave, still keeping at least some of her awareness on their surroundings, just in case ::
(21:35:23) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Can finally see the blinding light of day.::
(21:35:48) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: :: is leaning foward towards his console, elbow on it, half sleep ::
(21:35:55) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: watches T'Lira and the cave entrance with a slight shift of her hand on her phaser ::
(21:36:34) CaptHarper: :: hasn't drawn her own phaser, trusting in her Marines ::
(21:37:19) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: wonders whether the Science/Engineering teams aboard have found a way around the interference yet ::
(21:37:25) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Rockets out of the cave, gallantly riding his ursine companion, who skids to a stop afore Harper, roaring at the away team.::
(21:37:50) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: All: Greetings all.
(21:37:54) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: stumbles backwards:: Self: What the-?
(21:38:18) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: tenses up, then looks at Ilaihr... on a bear. Huh? ::
(21:38:19) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: is finally startled out of her concentration and nearly drops her tricorder, fumbling it with a surprised "Eep!" ::
(21:38:30) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: is taken slightly off guard by Ilaihr riding some sort of ursine creature... but quickly recovers, although is curious as to what transpired in that cave ::
(21:38:36) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: startles, hand tensing around her weapon, before relaxing. ::
(21:38:56) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: :: slips, suddenly waking up :: Self: Crap! :: remembering the note about interferience, and continues to work ::
(21:39:03) CaptHarper: :: has to fight with everything that she is to stand her ground as the bear skids to a stop, knowing that with Ilaihr riding it, everything will probably be fine ::
(21:39:27) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: blinks, processes, then grins :: Bear: Cooool....!
(21:41:12) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: tilts head, eyes still wide :: Self: Huh.
(21:41:43) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: All: How are we all? Is everyone having a good day? ::Lifts his can to the air, twirling it around.:: Is everyone relaxed? FoCuS oN tHe CaNe. Hands away from your weapons. RELAX.
(21:42:11) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: looks at Ilaihr with confusion ::
(21:42:23) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: lifts an eyebrow, keeping her phaser in hand ::
(21:42:35) CaptHarper: :: still has not drawn her weapon and looks quizzically at Ilaihr :: ENG: ... Report, Commander.
(21:42:43) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: huffs with slight irritation, keeping her hand on her weapon. ::
(21:43:18) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: I would recommend putting your weapons on the ground, and making no hostile actions.
(21:44:12) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: subtly takes out tricorder and scans the bear, then places it back ::
(21:44:18) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Looks back at the cave entrance, sensing Nəme and it's kin coming.::
(21:44:31) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: glances at T'Lira for instructions ::
(21:45:21) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: keeps her weapon in hand until ordered otherwise, her gaze focused on the creature ::
(21:45:23) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::all of the lifesigns seem perfectly normal including Ilaihr's, so she's not too concerned::
(21:45:32) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: doesn't have her weapon drawn, but looks at Kate for confirmation ::
(21:46:22) CaptHarper: :: speaks calmly and evenly :: All: Those with weapons drawn, put them down. Those with weapons on your belts, leave them there.
(21:46:55) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: returns her phaser to its holster, gaze never wavering ::
(21:46:57) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: There is... much to tell little time. Come... ::Raises his hand up to head level, parting his fingers.::
(21:47:12) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: casually slides her hand back to her hip, watching the bear with a glint of wonder in her eye and a grin on her face. ::
(21:48:05) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: Note, the direct input of information will be... discomforting for a moment.
(21:48:17) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: drops her hand from her phaser, crossing her arms across her chest with a nervous expression on her face. ::
(21:49:27) CaptHarper: ENG: You mean.... telepathically?
(21:50:09) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Looks back, Nəme almost upon them.:: CO: Yes. Fastest way. Most coherent.
(21:51:53) CaptHarper: :: hesitates, then nods, trusting the old Aenar after all they've been through ::
(21:54:27) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: watches this exchange between her wife and her friend, suddenly trepidatious as she finally notices the growing sound coming from the cavern ::
(21:54:50) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Places his index and middle finger on Kathryn's temple, his ring and little fingers resting on her cheekbone. His eye go milky for a brief moment, as he transmits the images he saw in the cave, as well as the raw emotions of the experience directly into the Captain's mind.::
(21:55:58) CaptHarper: :: takes in a sharp breath, unaccustomed to anything telepathic, then furrows her brow as she tries to concentrate on the new information rushing in ::
(21:59:19) CaptHarper: :: getting the idea, then meets ilaihr's eyes, searching for confirmation ::
(22:00:33) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: Relax... focus on the images. ::Tries to filter out some of the noise, so her brain doesnt overload.::
(22:01:10) CaptHarper: :: does so, and her understanding grows, this telepathy stuff still incredibly foreign ::
(22:01:39) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Lets go, then slumps over onto his companion's shoulder, seemingly exhausted.::
(22:01:57) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: at the helm on the relatively empty bridge, enjoying the quiet ::
(22:02:10) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: looks with concern from Ilaihr to Kate and back ::
(22:02:33) CaptHarper: :: takes a few deep breaths to settle herself after the contact breaks, perhaps to just process everything that just happened ::
(22:02:38) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: watches the two carefully, eyebrows scrunched together ::
(22:03:03) CaptHarper: :: then places a hand on Ilaihr's back :: ENG: Are you alright, Ilaihr?
(22:03:55) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Looks up to the cave.:: All: The Nəme, grand bear of the unnamed Ursine people, the keeper of the central flame of the grand cave... ::Sighs exhaustedly.::
(22:05:30) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: The... mineral lining the cave... In it's unique crystalline lattice, is a psionic amplifier.
(22:06:21) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: mouths the unfamiliar word "Nəme" to herself ::
(22:06:28) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: It has advanced them... beyond animals. ::Becomes steadily more tired.::
(22:07:11) CaptHarper: :: whispers :: Remarkable. ENG: Ilaihr. You need to rest.
(22:08:08) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: Cannot. ::Sits up, ready for Nəme and his kind to finally introduce themselves in full force.::
(22:08:35) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Self: Then they are... the rightful... :: ponders how this will affect the colonists, including the Kvolir ::
(22:08:40) CaptHarper: :: thinks she got the message and looks to the cave entrance ::
(22:09:07) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: watches to the entrance, shifting on her feet slightly ::
(22:09:45) CaptHarper: :: still slightly unsettled from the telepathic contact, but pushes that aside for now ::
(22:10:16) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: looks over at Harper in concern, then shifts her attention to the cave again ::
(22:11:04) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Eyes go milky, and his voice seems to boom.:: All: He is here.
(22:11:57) CaptHarper: :: waits to meet the grand bear ::
(22:12:27) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: still holding her tricorder, scanning the cave mouth and waiting ::
(22:18:17) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Nəme, the Great Bear, steps forth from the shadows of the cave mouth. At first alone, but then a handful of others, then a dozen.... then more. Nəme looms over the others; them like grizzly bears, but Nəme more the size an elephant.::
(22:18:56) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: <Nəme> ::Roars, bearing it's sabred teeth.::
(22:19:18) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: is stunned by the size of the great bear, tricorder passively collecting data as she gawks at it ::
(22:19:21) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: mouth agape :: Self: Oh- the four deities
(22:19:22) CaptHarper: :: eyes go slightly wide, betraying her sense of awe despite her attempts to remain outwardly stoic ::
(22:19:44) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: jerks in startlement, eyes going wide with absolute panic :: Self: Oh my... GOD.
(22:19:52) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: clasps her hands together excitedly, big grin on her face as she looks up at the giant bear. ::
(22:20:12) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: blinks once at the large bear, seeking ways to disable it if necessary ::
(22:20:39) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: NAV: Sssssoooooooo, what-what do you th-th-th-think is going on-on-on-on down there?
(22:20:56) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: glances at T'Lira slightly before turning her attention to the large bear, eyes scanning the creature ::
(22:21:00) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: takes out tricorder again, scanning the bears ::
(22:21:12) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: turns to Razyn :: ENG2: Probably something involving giant bears. I will stick to flying, thank you.
(22:21:15) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: <Nəme> ::Immedietly casts it's eyes on T'Lira, growling.::
(22:21:38) CaptHarper: All: Remain calm.
(22:21:49) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: lifts an eyebrow at the creature ::
(22:22:17) CaptHarper: Nəme: I am Captain Kathryn Harper of the Federation. We come in peace. :: after a second, she looks to Ilaihr, hoping that he's relaying that message somehow ::
(22:22:23) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: moves slightly to stand at T'Lira's shoulder, focused on the bear ::
(22:24:14) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Speaks, but not in his own voice.:: All: The Blue Eduda has explained.
(22:24:21) CaptHarper: :: moistens her lips, finding them suddenly very dry ::
(22:25:21) SCI_LtJG_Jude: Self: Eduda?
(22:25:27) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: <Nəme> ::Grumbles.::
(22:26:00) CaptHarper: Nəme: Can we coexist here, on your world, if we do not harm you or intrude upon your sacred cave?
(22:26:01) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: SCI: The grandfather.
(22:26:59) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: nods to self, still taking scans from her tricorder:: Self: Huh.
(22:27:44) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CMO: Doctora, how do things look down there, anyway?
(22:28:42) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: attempts to calmly, rationally, look at the scientific side of what is happening here ::
(22:29:03) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: That is yet to be determined. We must see if you really can hold to the cause of peace; whether you can be trusted not to damage the natural order
(22:29:20) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: NAV: Despite the foreign lifesigns surrounding the party, oddly fine. Although Ilaihr's seems to have dipped a bit earlier.. He's not in any real danger right now but I'm keeping an eye on him.
(22:29:46) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: Even now, you seek ways to keep us away from your... colony.
(22:29:56) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CMO: From what I hear, he was telepathically talking to the bears. It must be draining.
(22:30:31) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: NAV: Ohh.. interesting. Yes, that might explain it.
(22:30:51) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: NAV/CMOt-t-talking to b-b-bears sounds epic-epic-epic.
(22:31:19) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: <Nəme> ::Lets out a deep call, being joined in chorus with the others.::
(22:31:23) CaptHarper: Nəme: We did not yet understand you. Our entire Federation is built on the values of peaceful coexistence. How can we show this to you?
(22:32:43) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: chuckles :: ENG2: That it does.
(22:33:06) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: We see your star bird in the sky.
(22:33:43) CaptHarper: :: nods ::
(22:33:45) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: <Nəme> ::Lumbers forward, shaking the ground with each step, approaching the away team.::
(22:34:16) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: takes a deep breath and attempts to stand still, eyes on the large bear ::
(22:34:20) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: shifts on her toes nervously, watching the approaching bear ::
(22:34:23) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: whispers :: CO: Captain. The excavations could be... problematic.
(22:34:25) CaptHarper: :: incredulously, she finds herself less bothered by the approach of the great lumbering bear than she thought she would, and smiles ::
(22:34:32) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ENG2: Not surprising, considering he once guided the ship through telepathy.. I imagine speaking with the bears would be much less draining though.
(22:35:20) CaptHarper: :: nods in agreement with Lexy :: CO: We will have to ask permission, and move or cancel them if necessary.
(22:35:38) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: CMO: WHOA! He-he-he-he WHA-WHA-WHAT?
(22:36:00) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: I will see this colony. And if the people should attack... you will be destroyed.
(22:36:08) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: smirks ::
(22:36:26) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: <Nəme> ::Looks up, roaring at Atlantis beyond the sky.::
(22:36:53) CaptHarper: :: nods deeply, then meets the great bear's eyes :: Nəme: Of course. I assume you know the way?
(22:38:19) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: <Nəme> ::Vanishes. The other bears suddenly charging in the direction of the colony. ::
(22:38:36) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ENG2: You should ask him about it sometime, it's quite a story.. ::smiles::
(22:38:36) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: blinks :: CO: Captain, shall I alert the colony?
(22:39:15) CaptHarper: CSO: Yes, contact Ryne and let her know what is about to happen, and that no one should make any kind of hostile movements.
(22:39:45) CaptHarper: :: looks to Ilaihr, really hoping that the colony isn't about to e wiped out ::
(22:39:56) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Is carried along by his companion, with the horde, as they stream out of the cave ::
(22:40:30) CSO_Cdr_Wright: *Ryne* Ryne, this is the Atlantis Away Team. There have been some... revelations about the ursine creatures -- they seem to be sapient. They are coming to the colony now to confirm that we are peaceful. Under no circumstances should anyone make hostile movements toward them.
(22:41:22) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: <Nəme> ::Appears in the centre of the colony, calling to it's brethren.::
(22:41:37) CaptHarper: Ryne> *CSO* They are coming now? And you assure us they mean no harm? :: eyes go wide as Nəme appears outside her window ::
(22:42:36) CSO_Cdr_Wright: *Ryne* They seek to determine whether we can co-exist peacefully.
(22:43:26) CaptHarper: Ryne> *CSO* I must go! :: cuts that comm and makes a colony-wide announcement to calm the fuck down and be nice to the bears ::
(22:43:26) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: <Nəme> ::Its eyes scan the colony, its nostrils flaring, ears twitching to the sound of ever movement.::
(22:45:03) CaptHarper: Colonists> :: get the word and eye Nəme warily, but make no move to attack ::
(22:45:37) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::At the speed the bears can run, it is not long until they all stand a top a hill overlooking the colony; as they call back to Nəme.::
(22:46:50) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: <Nəme> ::Starts galloping through the street, vanishing, then reappearing going the opposite direction down another street.::
(22:47:30) CaptHarper: :: left behind at the cave with the away team :: *Atlantis* Harper to Atlantis! Have the away team beamed to the colony, all but Commander Ilaihr.
(22:47:57) CaptHarper: Ryne> :: walks out into the street, alone, to greet Nəme ::
(22:48:32) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: *CO* Aye, capitana, stand by. :: sends the order to the TR ::
(22:48:51) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: <Nəme> ::Suddenly appears behind Ryne, making no sound; the only immediate sign being the shadow overcasting her.::
(22:48:57) CaptHarper: ACTION> The away team shimmers out at the cave, and relayed through Atlantis, appears in the colony's main square.
(22:49:33) CaptHarper: Ryne> :: turns to Nəme, afraid, but outwardly calm :: Nəme: Hello. I am Ryne. It is nice to meet you.
(22:49:48) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: looks around, offering a grin to some colonists and heading right for the person who's feeling the most jumpy to offer comfort ::
(22:50:21) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: <Nəme> ::Grumbles, sniffing at her.::
(22:51:28) CaptHarper: Ryne> :: sniffed, smiles a stately smile in return ::
(22:51:42) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: keeps an eye on the large bear, watching the interaction ::
(22:52:59) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Rides into the colony, passed many colonists.::
(22:53:06) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: keeps an eye on the large bear before moving over to stand at a guard position, watching. ::
(22:53:21) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: <Nəme> ::Grumbles, and growls, and chitters.::
(22:54:20) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Finally catches up to the away team and Nəme.::
(22:54:34) CaptHarper: :: watches Ryne greet Nəme and is rather impressed, having just had to stand face-to-face with the grand bear ::
(22:55:12) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: All: You are not the demons who came before.
(22:57:09) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: Ryne: Your heart is less tainted by the darkness. There is much we can teach you.
(22:57:27) CaptHarper: Ryne> Nəme: We would look forward to that.
(22:58:01) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: <Nəme> ::Looks to Ilaihr.::
(22:58:30) CaptHarper: :: has a stray thought about how this technically violates the Prime Directive, but it was certainly accidental, as if that matters when filling out reports ::
(22:58:41) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: The Eduda. ::Falls from his companion.::
(22:59:10) CaptHarper: :: darts over to Ilaihr out of concern ::
(22:59:14) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: rushes toward Ilaihr in concern ::
(22:59:48) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: hurries towards Ilaihr, sliding to her knees and glancing for Acacia.:: MED: Acacia!
(23:00:00) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: looks over, making her way to Ilaihr to assess him. ::
(23:00:04) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: jerks her head towards Ilaihr, and immediately runs to him ::
(23:00:15) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: <Nəme> ::Lets out a low rumble, approaching the fallen Aenar, groaning at the away team.::
(23:00:37) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: her attention had been on making sure the ursines upheld their agreement to peace, but is redirected to Ilaihr when he falls. She pulls back a bit, still keeping an eye out, but hovering a good deal closer to the main part of the team than she had been ::
(23:00:54) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: runs her tricorder wand over his body. She glances around at the people, then places a hand on Ilaihr's shoulder, tapping her combadge :: TR: Two to beam to sick bay.
