(6:14:14 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: sits in the middle of the bridge, padd in hand, looking over damage and casualty reports ::
(6:14:22 PM) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: is finishing up rounds in sickbay, working on discharging most of the injured marines, save for two of the worst. ::
(6:14:38 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: coordinating Operations teams to partner with Engineering teams on repair work ::
(6:16:07 PM) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: in her fighter, running diagnostics and attempting to create a routine that would pull power automatically from certain systems when shields get low. The engineers are looking over the shield generator as she does ::
(6:16:09 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: lightly steps on his bad leg, his knee still in the brace. It's still not quite up to par and has some healing to do. But at least he's at his station. ::
(6:16:34 PM) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: is working on a datapad, focused on the screen, waiting for Acacia to come around and clear her for discharge ::
(6:17:11 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: finishing up her post-flight checks, ready to hand Shinigami over for repairs ::
(6:17:36 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Is sat at his console, using no mind assigning the repair teams; his higher brain functions still processing the Ursine telepathic network like a switchboard operator... although since the battle the primal emotions have quietened down somewhat... there is still a great discourse.::
(6:18:15 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> :: is already in the locker room, her fighter having fared better than some of the other Sharks, stripping off her flightsuit ::
(6:19:33 PM) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: finally steps into the room with Grey, and shuts the door behind her :: TAC2: So... have you given some thought to what I said?
(6:20:11 PM) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: taps her console, running diagnostics on the ship's internal systems ::
(6:20:47 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: lowers the report in her hand from her seated position on the floor, then looks over to Engineering :: ENG: Mr. Ilaihr, how are the ursines?
(6:23:43 PM) TAC2_2LT_Grey: MED: Indeed. :: turns her datapad to face the medical staff. :: MED: I have... and I have some ideas, but I kind of want to see how they work first.
(6:24:57 PM) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: tilts her head slightly, taking the PADD and looking it over. ::
(6:25:01 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: XO: They are... ::Begins to slump in his seat.:: They are recuperating...
(6:26:07 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: sends messages to the tactical repair crews to get the port side phaser arrays repaired and back up to full steam, and then the burst quantum systems. Shields have also taken a beating, and he sends a message to make sure they're on Engineering's high priority list. ::
(6:26:19 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: nods in thought, then quietly :: ENG: Do you know their casualty status?
(6:27:01 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: XO: Some are afraid... but most are stalwart in their willingness to defend this world. The method in dealing with them is in flux...
(6:27:58 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: listening to this conversation, interested ::
(6:28:17 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: XO: Two dozen perhaps... but... their memories... are still with us... ::Shakes his head.:: Still with them.
(6:30:09 PM) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: looks over at Ilaihr, listening ::
(6:32:07 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: frowns, her heavy brows lowered and nods again, not understanding what methods Ilaihr speaks of, but their loss in numbers weighs heavily on her :: ENG: They fought bravely, protecting their world. Could there be something we can do to help them?
(6:33:35 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Grimaces, rubbing his temple.:: Self: Change... we must grow further. We have read the leaves in the wind for too long... we must read the wind itself...
(6:37:07 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: Self: They are not the sky demons of old, but they are born of the same malevolent intent. When the demons burnt our skies and stole our kin, we grew to counter their malice.
(6:37:08 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: cocks her head to one side ::
(6:38:17 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: turns toward him, straining a bit to hear his words over the Ops team chatter she has in one ear ::
(6:40:01 PM) SCI_LtJG_Jude: ENG: So... are you saying that they evolved in order to fight off the... sky demons?
(6:43:25 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Wavers.:: Self: The central flame has brought us a new foe and new friends, it is time to grow again. ::His head slumps back, as he lets out an exhausted gasp.::
(6:45:03 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: takes a few steps towards Ilaihr :: *CMO* Bridge to Sickbay, can you send someone to check on Ilaihr? His telepathy is...taxing him.
(6:46:06 PM) CMO_Lt_Tailor: *XO*: I can come up, I've got things under control here for now.
(6:47:44 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: *CMO* Thanks, Doctor.
(6:48:31 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::His eye dart around, as if he's reading something.:: XO: They... are learning about the stars.
(6:49:20 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: XO: Analysing the history of what we call... sapience...
(6:50:26 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: All: To guide them on their path... the path the central flame has put before them... to decide what they will become.
(6:50:46 PM) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::grabs her medkit and makes her way to the turbolift::
(6:51:27 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: ENG: :: hesitates as Ilaihr explains, hovering near him and waiting until she thinks he's finished because she's interested in what he's saying, but is concerned for him :: They're resting now, and so should you. We can speak with them later.
(6:52:56 PM) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::rides the lift up, humming lightly to the bad jazz music, then swooshes through the doors once they come to a stop::
(6:54:11 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: sees Tailor coming and backs away, looking to the other bridge officers ::
(6:54:59 PM) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: nods slowly, handing the PADD back to Riley. She takes a deep breath :: TAC2: Ah, that's... not quite what I meant, Riley.
(6:55:18 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks from Ilaihr to Kuari as Tailor arrives ::
(6:56:35 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: XO: No... there is no time. ::Grips his armrest tight, shaking, as a tear rolls down his cheek.:: Self: So much darkness... such depravity in our pasts... ::Sighs with laboured breathing.:: Must learn from history. We cannot let them base their future civilization on hate.
(6:57:58 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: is about to address Wright, but turns suddenly as Ilaihr speaks to her and frowns, listening and wondering ::
(6:58:05 PM) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: cocks her head to the side :: MED: What do you mean?
(7:00:35 PM) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: purses her lips, and realizes she's going to have to be a bit more blunt. She slowly sits on the foot of Riley's bed, taking a moment to choose her words. :: TAC2: Well, Riley, I'm not a psychologist. I can't sit here and diagnose you with depression, but I can see signs, and I can refer you for treatment. :: she paused, sighing :: TAC2: But you and I both know that it's useless. I can hardly imagine what you're like around a therapist... but I can't do *nothing*. So, I'm asking you. What are we going to do about this? :: she gestures to the PADD ::
(7:05:42 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looking at Ilaihr, wondering what she can do to help :: ENG: Would access to our historical database be useful at all...?
(7:07:26 PM) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::walks back to the engineering console and looks Ilaihr over:: ENG: How are you doing?
(7:09:52 PM) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: frowns slightly. :: MED: I know I'm dealing with depression. I was on medication.
(7:10:16 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::His head starts twitching, at the flash of images and emotions in his mind.:: CSO: I do not know... ::Glances at Alexis with a smile, before looking to Tailor.:: I need... some form of stimulant, and... an entheogen.
(7:13:59 PM) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: looks at her, her expression doey. She obviously wants to help, and pick all the right words, but she's kind of.. floundering, trying to deal with people :: TAC2: How'd that work for you?
(7:14:03 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::His eye glaze over slightly.:: Self: What it was to he young. Unlimited potential. ::Sighs, looking back to Wright.:: CSO: Perhaps we should have a pot of tea. ::Chuckles.::
(7:14:37 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: nods at him, looking a bit worried ::
(7:14:47 PM) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ENG: You can have a mild stimulant, but I'm fresh out of entheogens..
(7:16:14 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: approaches Science, her voice quiet as Tailor tends to Ilaihr :: CSO: Assuming repairs are under control, see what you can find out from sensor data of the ursine habitat. There may be nothing from the interference, but...we can look.
(7:17:08 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CMO: I've found mescaline hydrochloride to be a most suitable aid. It should be easy for the computer to replicate it.
(7:17:14 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: nods at Kuari, her eyes still on Ilaihr before she tears them away, seeing what she can do with the scanners with the interference from the planet's geology ::
(7:18:47 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: nods to Wright as she turns to her console, then walks over to Wolfe, trying to keep her mind on the ship's systems :: CTO: How are weapons?
(7:19:17 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CMO: I would only require about 500 milligrams.
(7:20:00 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: breaks from watching and tapping his console to answer :: XO: Phasers are at 68% full power, photon torpedo launchers are 78% repaired, quantums are 99%, and shields are fully repaired.
(7:20:01 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Grins at the doctor, trying to look less exhausted.::
(7:20:20 PM) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: laughs sheepishly. :: MED: Lets say... that it didn't work well.
(7:21:18 PM) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: nods slowly, understanding. She offers a morsel, hoping relating might help. :: TAC2: Yeah, antidepressants really didn't agree with me. Did you try anything else?
(7:21:21 PM) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ENG: Nice try.. but even if I did think that was a good idea, it would be under controlled monitoring in sickbay. And not when you're half exhausted either..
(7:21:37 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: nods to Wolfe, her Tactical training breaking the percentages down further in her mind, and she mentally compares those figures to her last report, wandering back towards the center of the bridge :: CTO: Thank you.
(7:22:22 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CMO: Oh I'm not all that tired... did I... did I ever tell you the story of the Xindi-Aquatics...
(7:23:10 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CMO: Now, that trade negotiation was exhausting...
(7:23:45 PM) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ENG: I can get you a cup of tea though. No, you've never told me that story, but it sounds fascinating. ::smiles::
(7:24:26 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: perks an ear towards Tailor and Ilaihr despite other ship functions to think about, but her main engineer's health is also a priority ::
(7:26:45 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CMO: Thank you my dear. ::Lets out a sigh.:: My dearest Kessel would refuse me them as well.
(7:27:42 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: XO: The ursines that are on the surface seem to be patrolling... and gathering Xovul corpses.
(7:29:18 PM) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::chuckles:: ENG: I am not surprised.. ::goes to the replicator and gets a cup of tea for Ilaihr and brings it back, handing him the warm mug:: ENG: Here you are.
(7:29:31 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: welcomes the distraction when Wright speaks to her, and thoughtfully takes in the information ::
(7:31:24 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CMO: But an old man can and must always try. Have to set an example to the young. ::Chuckles, before growing quiet for a moment.:: The Aquatics though... so... deliberate... hours of waiting for a single word answer... ::Clasps the tea as its given to him, his tremor being noticeable by the ripple on the surface; before sipping and savouring the inner warmth.::
(7:33:10 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CMO: Thank you my dear.
(7:33:34 PM) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ENG: Hours.. reminds me of sitting through some of my colleague's dissertation speeches. You're welcome ::smiles:: XO: He seems his normal self to me...
(7:34:32 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: smiles at Tailor :: CMO: I wasn't sure...with everything he's doing, he seemed exhausted. Thank you.
(7:36:08 PM) CaptHarper: :: she finally emerges from the ready room after all of the lengthy communications ::
(7:36:34 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: hears the ready room door swish open and turns her head ::
(7:36:56 PM) CaptHarper: :: smiles and turns her head a bit at Kuari :: XO: How are we looking, Commander?
(7:37:52 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks over at Kate, at a bit of a loss for how she can help the situation ::
(7:39:22 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: stands on all fours as Harper approaches :: CO: Weapons at eighty percent, engines... :: turns to look at Ilaihr, then back :: ...well, they're in pretty good shape.
(7:40:10 PM) CaptHarper: :: pinches her chin, finding that a marked improvement :: XO: And the shields?
(7:40:42 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: CO: Fully powered. :: glances at Wolfe ::
(7:41:18 PM) CaptHarper: :: claps her hands together :: All: Wonderful! Please convey my thanks to all of your departments.
(7:41:39 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: nods curtly :: CO: How's Ian?
(7:41:57 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: says that last part quietly ::
(7:42:08 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: passes it on to Sci/Ops with a few taps of her console, knowing they'll enjoy it ::
(7:43:11 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::His breathing laboured, he frowns, sipping at his tea, before closing his eyes.::
(7:43:12 PM) CaptHarper: :: takes her seat and quietly answers Kuari :: XO: Worried about us, but not outwardly. More reinforcements are coming.
(7:43:30 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: nods to Kuari in confirmation ::
(7:43:46 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: looks from Wolfe to Harper and smiles, then frowns :: CO: They'll be back, won't they?
(7:44:13 PM) CaptHarper: XO: Undoubtedly.
(7:44:21 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CMO: How are you through all of this doctor?
(7:44:44 PM) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: grins and snorts ::
(7:47:08 PM) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ENG: Aside from being angry at the Xovul for attacking us, which I think most of us probably are.. I'm doing alright. ::smiles:: A little less busy than I was earlier now that things have calmed down in sickbay.
(7:48:08 PM) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: appears on the bridge after having gotten a shower following his ejection, relaunch, and return to the ship ::
(7:48:40 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: glances over at Navarro with a small relieved smile ::
(7:49:40 PM) CaptHarper: NAV: Glad you made it back, Zorro.
(7:50:07 PM) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: smiles at Wright as he sits down :: CO: Don't count me out, capitana. :: grins ::
(7:50:25 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: notes Navarro's return to the bridge with a smile and turns her attention to the medical reports ::
(7:51:45 PM) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CMO: Most excellent. ::Nods at the doctor.:: And everyone handled themselves well.
(7:52:34 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: knows Jude is covering the internal scans, but can't resist running one for herself to look at the overall status ::
(7:52:44 PM) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: continues to look through scans ::
(7:53:27 PM) TAC2_2LT_Grey: :: nods and pulls up her file, handing it over to Acacia. :: MED: Look, I know I have depression. And anxiety as well... but I don't see why this would keep me from doing my job. As long as I keep the crew alive, I will be content with myself.
(7:53:39 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: abandons them after a cursory look and starts looking at the scan data from the battle, trying to pinpoint weaknesses on the Xovul ships ::
(7:53:50 PM) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: watches as the final repairs are made to the weapons systems, and returns his whole attention to watch for the return of the Xovul. ::
(7:55:05 PM) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: is already back in bed, rapidly falling asleep ::
(7:55:21 PM) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ENG: Yes, they did. And the Xovul have been beaten back for now, let's hope it stays that way.
(7:55:41 PM) MED_LtJG_Acacia: :: frowns, crossing her arms :: TAC2: Riley. Work with me here. I don't want to order you.
(7:55:57 PM) XO_Cdr_Kuari: Ash> :: finds herself in Ten Forward, ordering a drink ::
(7:56:13 PM) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: goes over the telemetry and finds that Harper left the station in fine shape, as usual ::
(7:56:52 PM) CaptHarper: :: looks down at the PADD in her hand with a worried glance ::
