(21:21:03) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: slumps down in a chair in sickbay, letting her head lull back ::
(21:21:38) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks up from Grey and across to Kuari to answer her question :: XO: I'm fine. I didn't go down the same way she did. :: helps Grey up, then stands himself and makes the motion of wiping off his pants. ::
(21:22:19) CaptHarper: :: in her bed in sickbay, thinking ::
(21:23:53) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: steps back, but still watches ::
(21:24:16) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: nods to herself at Wolfe's answer, mostly satisfied, then out of her concerned state turns her head to study Harper ::
(21:25:09) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: brushes her shoulder off with a deep grumble, followed by a few curse words about her own stupidity :: CTO: Thank you.
(21:26:15) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: TAC2: Go slow to go fast. Especially with concussions. Take it easy for whatever time you need.
(21:27:14) CaptHarper: :: rubs at her temple a bit ::
(21:29:59) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: makes her way slowly to the center of the Bridge, thinking ::
(21:30:25) TAC2_2LT_Grey: CTO: Yes sir. :: snaps off a small salute before straightening, wincing slightly. :: CTO: Permission to leave the bridge, sir?
(21:30:45) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: TAC2: Of course.
(21:31:51) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: nods over in Grey's direction, thinking at first Grey is asking her ::
(21:32:07) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: leaves the bridge quite quickly, taking the TL down to her quarters to fall into an unsteady nap across her berth ::
(21:35:01) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: returns to Tactical 1 and looks across to T'Lira. :: TAC1: Have you been able to find any information on Xovul ships, weapons, or fighting tactics?
(21:36:05) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: perks an ear at Wolfe's question and looks, thinking she should pay attention ::
(21:37:31) CaptHarper: :: starts to be able to feel her broken teeth and winces, which also hurts ::
(21:40:42) CaptHarper: :: hits the button to page a doctor ::
(21:43:20) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::appears as if out of nowhere:: CO: Hello Captain, how are you feeling?
(21:44:09) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: wakes from her very quick, but also very refreshing nap, slowly rising to her feet again and heading back up onto the bridge after tapping into her own datapad. :: CTO: Second Lt. Grey reporting back for duty, sir.
(21:44:20) CaptHarper: CMO: Nnnnnggg I am starting to feel my broken teeth and sore face.
(21:46:56) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: turns to the Turbolift. :: TAC2: That would be unwise. You may stay on the Bridge in an observational position for the moment. Sitting.
(21:47:58) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Sits at his console in meditation, his palms facing up, his thumbs curling and touching his middle finger. His eyes are open, but they're milky and empty looking, whilst the words he mutters to himself seem hollow and vacant.::
(21:49:08) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: shrugs slightly, before sliding into an empty chair. :: CTO: Yes sir.
(21:49:18) ENG2_Ens_Razyn: :: looks over at Ilaihr, but decides not to bother him, and turns back to his console, hutched over it ::
(21:53:26) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::goes and looks at the captain's morphine drip:: CO: I'll go ahead and schedule a dental consult for you. Meanwhile, I can increase your painkiller dosage..
(21:55:21) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: checks the scans and what she has been able to ascertain so far :: CTO: I have identified no new information. Their strength is comparable to ours, but I have not been able to find any specific details from the data collected.
(21:55:50) CaptHarper: :: smiles a jagged, grateful smile :: CMO: Thank you, doctor.
(21:56:31) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: TAC: I was afraid you'd say that. I am quite certain that you're authorized to contact anyone necessary to get better information. :: looks over at Kuari for confirmation. ::
(21:56:37) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: CO: How does your head feel aside from your jaw?
(21:57:17) CaptHarper: CMO: I had a bit of a headache creeping in before I paged you; a couple of jabs in my temples.
(21:57:33) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: turns to look at Wolfe, puzzled ::
(21:58:39) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: XO: As in, we might have to contact the types of folks where Commander Ilaihr comes up with some of his information.
(21:59:49) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: frowns, her eyes darting to the side as she thinks what protocols say about such a thing ::
(22:00:01) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: glances up at Wolfe, expression twisted into something of maybe questioning his decision to keep her on observation. :: CTO: Keeping me on observation is taking a trained tactician out of the scene, as we plainly saw, in order to combat the Ykavosh in the best way we can, all available members need to be put to good use.
(22:00:48) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: TAC2: I meant you could observe. Not that I'll be holding your hand.
(22:01:02) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: snickers ::
(22:01:06) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: lifts an eyebrow. It was a rather bold assumption that anyone had information about this previously unknown race, but if that is the given directive, so be it. The natural first step would be Starfleet Intelligence, but there is no reason she cannot multitask by contacting multiple individuals simultaneously ::
(22:02:48) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Continues to whisper under his breath incoherently.::
(22:02:48) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: looks back to Wolfe and T'Lira :: CTO/TAC: Contact the Free Fleets, see if they know about the Xovul.
(22:03:18) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: XO: Aye. :: nods to T'Lira. ::
(22:04:25) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: searches through the ship’s database for the relevant contact information and sends a message asking for information about the Xovul, without revealing too many details ::
(22:11:50) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::gently checks the swelling on the Captain's jaw and has her open her mouth to look at the teeth:: CO: The headache should go away once the pain meds kick in again, your scans looked good though. I didn't see any clotting or other issues.
(22:13:01) CaptHarper: :: mouth open, speaks in dentist language :: CMO: Ahhh ahhh.
(22:14:37) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: recieves a response from the Free Fleets and is not entirely pleased :: CTO/XO: The Free Fleets are aware of the Xovul, and highly recommend avoiding conflict with them. It is indicated that they are equal to or better than most Federation ships, with directed energy weapons, plasma torpedoes, and... I am unsure of what she means by “built like tanks”.
(22:15:38) TAC2_2LT_Grey: CTO/XO/TAC: Basically they're really strong, and virtually impossible to face in matched combat. :: speaks up from her chair ::
(22:16:43) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::takes her gloved fingers out of the captain's mouth::
(22:17:26) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: cracks his knuckles and badly fakes a John Wayne western drawl that still has a bit of his British in it :: XO/TAC/TAC2: 'Round these here parts, we're used to them odds... pardner.
(22:17:39) CaptHarper: :: gratefully closes her mouth as she starts to feel her teeth go away into morphineland ::
(22:17:47) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: listens to Grey's report, attempting to prevent her ears from pulling back quite so much and betraying her confidence. She tries to cover with a nod of acknowledgement ::
(22:18:43) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: covers mouth to try and stop her laughter at Wolfe's cowboy impersonation ::
(22:18:49) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: is not comprehending whatever the jone was supposed to be :: CTO/XO/TAC2: It is also indicated that their fighters are of high quality, both in design and in skill. That remains to be determined conclusively.
(22:19:16) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: snorts at Wolfe's accent before letting her own southern accent out :: XO/CTO/TAC: So... Old-fashioned guerrilla tactics then!
(22:19:40) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::degloves and drops them into a recycler::
(22:20:29) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: cocks her head to the side slightly when Wolfe's and Grey's voices change ::
(22:21:39) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: grins at seeing the XO's reaction to her accent.::
(22:22:21) CaptHarper: CMO: I... :: hesitates a moment, but decides and continues :: I do not wish to come across as the cliché of a captain in sickbay, but the Xovul will be coming back soon. How long until I can be on the bridge?
(22:27:41) CMO_LtJG_Tailor: ::goes to a console and submits a dental request for the captain:: CO: You'll get your new teeth tomorrow, by then the swelling should be under control. I'd say you could go back shortly afterwards once you're released.
(22:29:04) CaptHarper: CMO: Wonderful. Unless they are close by, that should be plenty of time. I hope.
(22:30:09) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: finally sits down on the floor, staring at the main viewer, thinking of Harper, but mostly wondering what she should be doing to prepare for the Xovul ::
(22:31:10) CaptHarper: ACTION> The following day.... still no sign of the Xovul.
(22:32:15) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: enters the bridge carefully, eyes narrowing as she slid into position at her station carefully, since her technical break-mandated by her CO, was over the prior night, she was ready to work ::
(22:34:00) CaptHarper: :: wakes up after a rough night of trying to sleep in sickbay ::
(22:34:54) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: crawls onto the Bridge, her eyes a bit bleary having not slept much, but she tried a caffeine drink from Qo'noS that seems to be popular, and she's wide awake ::
(22:35:21) CaptHarper: :: managed to get some sleep, at least, since she's had some practice at it ::
(22:35:24) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: arrives on the bridge and takes her spot, looking much better rested than the day before, but still a bit distant. ::
(22:35:29) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: had spent most of the night researching potential countermeasures to the Xovul weaponry, but one would never guess it by looking at her, at her station and working through her theories ::
(22:36:04) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: stands at his station where he's been for the last hour, continuing to research and plan tactics ::
(22:36:25) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: strolls into the bridge with a smirk on her face and sits down at her station ::
(22:36:58) CaptHarper: :: feels at her face, trying to see if it is still swollen or bruised, and winces at her teeth ::
(22:37:36) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Hasn't moved from his spot the whole night, lost in whatever connection he has to the planet below.::
(22:40:13) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: sits down in the center of the Bridge, between Harper's and her chairs, then realizes in her preoccupation she didn't make eye contact with everyone there and looks around ::
(22:43:24) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: is feeling much better today, than yesterday or even the day before, tapping away at her station to continue working on defense plans for when the Xovul attacked. ::
