(21:20:57) KateHarper: RESUME LEAVE
(21:20:58) KateHarper: RESUME LEAVE
(21:20:59) KateHarper: RESUME LEAVE
(21:22:44) KateHarper: Jack Cahalan, former Ten Forward manager of Atlantis> :: Sitting at a table with his wife, along with Harper and Wright, finishing dinner :: And might I just say, Kathryn and Alexis, how wonderful it is to see you again, and so happy together!
(21:23:26) EmilyAcacia: :: sits on the balcony of her hotel room, taking the last few minutes of relaxation she can ::
(21:24:31) KateHarper: Jack: It is wonderful to see you again too, Jack. Atlantis is hardly the same without your wisdom.
(21:24:53) RyleighGrey: :: is relaxing in the sun, dozing sleepily, enjoying the last bit of relaxation ::
(21:24:53) DocNavarro: :: emerges back on to the balcony with two glasses of wine ::
(21:26:45) KateHarper: JackCahalan> I know my old friend Zax has it covered, and besides, new Captain occasionally warrants a new bartender. Congrats again on that one.
(21:27:14) EmilyAcacia: :: grins, taking her glass :: Doc: Don't you have to drive later?
(21:27:15) DocNavarro: :: places a glass in Emily's hand as he settles into the lounge chair right next to her ::
(21:29:04) DocNavarro: :: chuckles :: By the time I do, I'll be just fine. :: somewhat apprehensive, and hoping the wine will give him some liquid courage to figure this all out ::
(21:29:30) Ilaihr: ::Rifles through his 'Trunk of many things', looking for some doodads that he was certain he'd put in there some 20 odd years ago.::
(21:29:51) CTO_LtC_Wolfe: :: is out on a small pontoon boat with Tira and Kuari. Other than in the hotel room at night, this whole trip Kuari has been with Wolfe and Tira, which has been welcome since they just haven't interacted as much since Kuari went over to Navy. From his position reclining with Tira on the chaise next to the driver's seat, Wolfe reaches up and adjust Kuari's pirate hat, the only thing she's wearing. ::
(21:30:53) EmilyAcacia: :: is fine to shrug it off, sipping her wine. She lets a moment pass, then nudges gently. :: Doc: So... what's wrong?
(21:30:55) KateHarper: Jack: Thank you. We certainly could not come to Risa and not pay you a visit, though.
(21:31:30) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::startles herself awake in a hottub somewhere in a hotel up high on a ski mountain on the northern continent of Risa where she'd fallen asleep blissfully by herself in front of the fire after her last day of skiing. She's gonna miss this place.::
(21:32:05) DocNavarro: I bet you don't even have to be an empath to tell. :: smirks ::
(21:33:21) KateHarper: JackCahalan> Kathryn, I'm just flattered that you thought of me after all this time away.
(21:33:46) Ilaihr: ::Pulls out some fossilised looking thing, that he proceeds to stare at for a moment; before licking it.::
(21:34:11) EmilyAcacia: :: shrugs slightly, unable to help a small smirk of her own :: Doc: Probably not.
(21:34:40) LexyWright: Suzuki> :: pleasantly sunning herself on her balcony, too exhausted to go out ::
(21:35:58) LexyWright: Jenna> Kate: Jack has lots of fun stories about his time on Atlantis. :: laughs lightly ::
(21:36:16) LexyWright: Jenna> Kate: I feel like I know so many of you.
(21:36:30) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::splashes herself out of the hot tub and grabs a robe, reluctantly dragging herself off to get dressed and ready to go back to the ship::
(21:36:31) Ilaihr: ::Chatters his lips at the extremely bitter taste.:: Self: 3 more years until it ripens... 4 at the most. ::He mumbles before putting it to the side and rummaging some more.:: Lets see if I remember at the time.
(21:36:46) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: looks over when Wolfe moves her hat, which moves it askew and it has to be adjusted again. When Wolfe stops fussing with it, she looks back out to sea and turns the small steering wheel a little. The gulf water is a beautiful bright blue, and the water is calm. Once in a while, a breeze will pick up a light spray from the pontoons, the sprinkle of water refreshing ::
(21:36:48) DocNavarro: :: takes a drink of wine and turns toward her, deciding to just get to the point since it's worked out once for him already ::
(21:37:21) DocNavarro: Emily, let me first say that I like whatever this is becoming between us.
(21:37:21) LexyWright: Jenna> :: smiles warmly at the shy one ::
(21:37:24) KateHarper: :: grins at Jack and Jenna ::
(21:37:40) KateHarper: Jack: I hope you did not tell *all* of the stories!
(21:37:53) EmilyAcacia: :: leans forward, resting her chin in her palm. She frowns slightly. :: Doc: But?
(21:37:54) LexyWright: :: tries a little bit to hide behind her drink ::
(21:38:28) LexyWright: Jenna> Ohhh... don't worry, those are safe with me. :: grins wickedly ::
(21:39:40) DocNavarro: :: licks his suddenly dry lips :: Emily: I respect you, and all that you are, asexuality included. I, however, am a sexual person, but I want this to continue despite that.
(21:39:53) LexyWright: Suzuki> :: achily rolls over, making sure to get a nice even tan on her back side as well ::
(21:40:25) EmilyAcacia: :: gives a single slow nod, brow knitting with confusion. She's trying to decide if this sounds like a break up, but it doesn't really.. ::
(21:40:34) Ilaihr: ::Pulls out a jar containing a pair of eyes, with the matching optic nerves.:: Self: Hmmmm... Why do I have you again? ::Snaps his fingers.:: The Lethean. ::Continues searching.::
(21:41:05) DocNavarro: I have... well, someone else. I would have said, a week ago, that she was just a friend, but that's not true. I have feelings for you both.
(21:41:50) KateHarper: :: wonders if he told Jenna about making it with now Rear Admiral Zuriyev when she was just Commander Dolan ::
(21:42:19) LexyWright: Jenna> :: grins at Jack confidently ::
(21:43:35) BenedictWolfe: :: watches the view go by as land gets closer and closer, since they're heading in to turn in the rental and head back to Atlantis :: Kuari/Tira: This has been quite a week. I've... enjoyed it immensely.
(21:43:48) LexyWright: Jenna> Kate: It's kind of nice to know about the human side of the great Kathryn Harper.
(21:43:50) EmilyAcacia: :: gives a second single slow nod, taking a moment to process that. She leans back in her chair and pensively sips her wine before deciding. :: Doc: That doesn't bother me. Does she know?
(21:44:11) KateHarper: Jenna: One hundred percent Risan. :: grins ::
(21:44:15) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::grabs her uniform out of habit, then decides she'd rather not put that on just yet. Puts on a comfy pair of sweatpants that say 'property of starfleet medical' on the butt, and a souvenir tshirt from a bar in the ski resort::
(21:44:58) DocNavarro: :: pauses a second while a great weight lifts from his shoulders ::
(21:45:11) Ilaihr: ::Pulls out a charred and burnt sheet of metal.:: Self: There you are. ::Brushes it down to reveal the word 'Betty'.::
(21:45:36) LexyWright: Jenna> Kate: An expression I picked up when I was living on Earth. :: laughs :: You and I share an interest, I hear!
(21:45:47) DocNavarro: :: then finally nods :: Emily: She does. She's not one for romance, though, so you get all of that from me.
(21:46:29) Kuari: :: smiles broadly, looking at Wolfe, then Tira :: Wolfe/Tira: I have, too! Rest and relaxation, and positive helps keep things in perspective, to show what we fight for.
(21:46:30) KateHarper: Jenna: Yes, I became somewhat of a Terraphile when I first got to Earth. It has faded a bit, but I *did* marry a human after all. :: beams at Lexy ::
(21:46:30) EmilyAcacia: :: is more surprised by that than what came before. Suddenly she's fighting back a giggle :: Doc: You found yourself.. an aromantic girl too?
(21:48:07) DocNavarro: :: chuckles a bit :: Emily: Yes, me, the hopeless romantic.
(21:48:37) BenedictWolfe: Tira> Wolfe/Kuari: And for me, to see some of it for the first time. :: tilts her head back, still resting it on Wolfe's shoulder, but tilted so she can look him in the eye. He looks back, and they share a smile ::
(21:49:37) Ilaihr: Self: I think its time to reforge you into something special, my dear. ::Pauses.:: I know... your last remnant. But I have recently been given something that I can modify my can with. It is serviceable but it requires a personal touch.
(21:51:08) EmilyAcacia: :: chuckles as well, looking out over the beach to take it in as the time wanes :: Doc: Well, something to be said for having a type.
(21:51:24) RyleighGrey: Ethan Jasper> :: wakes Ryleigh from her nap, both already changing into their uniforms and heading down to walk the beach one last time ::
(21:51:46) Ilaihr: Self: A gift from new friends, as the cane itself was from a stranger. A resplendent crystal, and I believe you will make a fine setting for the head of it.
(21:52:18) LexyWright: Jenna> Kate: Well... I didn't marry a human, despite my best efforts. I got stuck with this one. :: playfully nudges Jack with her elbow ::
(21:52:59) LexyWright: :: is entirely intimidated by the bold and confident Jenna, but not in an unpleasant way ::
(21:53:34) KateHarper: JackCahalan> :: laughs :: But you know, those traditionalist Risan women, I can't resist them.
(21:54:02) DocNavarro: :: repeats the story :: Emily: I always imagined myself as the gallant knight, sweeping the fair maiden off her feet after the wedding and carrying her to the bedroom for a wild night.
(21:54:47) LexyWright: :: looks at Jenna, she supposes looks traditionally Risian but certainly doesn't sound like one ::
(21:55:05) DocNavarro: Emily: But you know, this is probably better.
(21:55:10) Kuari: :: looks ahead, although her vision is close to two-hundred seventy degrees, ever the watchful navigator, not that there's anything in front of them to run into but a flat expanse of water. She's still smiling, though :: Tira: What do you think of Risa, Tira? I know you've had a good time, but how does it compare to what you know?
(21:55:31) LexyWright: Jenna> :: laughs ::
(21:55:39) KateHarper: Jack: What can I say? We have our charm.
(21:55:43) Ilaihr: Self: I have have to go to the holodeck. I will require a proper forge. ::Slowly begins to stand up, before pausing to grab something else out of the trunk; what looks like a dessicated lizard. He finishes standing up before taking a bite out of the lizard.:: Self: Mmmmm, those Saurian spice really do preserve things for years.
(21:55:52) KateHarper: JackCahalan> Kate: I am well aware of that, Kathryn! :: eyes Jenna ::
(21:57:01) EmilyAcacia: :: giggles, his charming words working much better on her than on Suzuki :: Doc: Well, old fairytales have old cultural notions woven in. Betazoids haven't ever done monogamy quite like humans.
(21:57:10) BenedictWolfe: Tira> Kuari: My culture puts very little appreciation into the finer luxuries like this. Your crew has... helped me to appreciate them.
(21:57:57) LexyWright: Jenna> :: still laughing :: Alright, break it up, you two, before I get jealous! It's probably about time we let these girls go on with their evening, anyway, wouldn
(21:58:01) LexyWright: 't you say, darling?
(21:59:14) Ilaihr: ::His eyes wobble, as other substances used in the lizard's preparation take effect.:: Self: Yes.... quite. ::Grabs his cane, and trots off out of his quarters.::
(21:59:15) Kuari: :: smiles even bigger, showing teeth, a perfect complement to her pirate hat :: Tira: That sounds like a fine accomplishment on our part, then! You'll have to tell all your friends.
(21:59:27) KateHarper: JackCahalan> Jenna: Yes, you're right, my dear. Kathryn, Alexis, thank you so much for thinking of us.
(21:59:48) LexyWright: :: meekly :: J&J: Thanks! It was fun.
(22:00:02) KateHarper: Jack: Thanks for beaming up to meet us! :: stands as they do and gives Jack a big hug, and a more polite one for Jenna, not knowing her as well ::
(22:00:17) BenedictWolfe: Tira> :: wraps her arm lightly around Wolfe's head :: Kuari: I will!
(22:00:49) LexyWright: :: waves, not knowing either of them well enough for hugs ::
(22:01:18) DocNavarro: I... am new to these, well, polyamorous feelings. But I will do my best to do right by you, or I am not Diego Ricardo Navarro Caballero de León!
(22:01:18) LexyWright: :: will overthink this later ::
(22:02:47) KateHarper: JackCahalan> You two take care of each other, okay?
(22:03:45) EmilyAcacia: :: chuckles at that, holding up her glass to clink them together. She makes a cheeky toast :: Doc: To unexplored space.
(22:04:20) DocNavarro: :: clinks her glass :: Boldly go.
(22:04:49) DocNavarro: :: finishes the wine, sets it aside, and wraps an arm around her, feeling about a hundred pounds lighter ::
(22:05:12) Kuari: :: is soon approaching land to return their boat, a quaint reproduction of a native marina from an earlier time. The effect is broken further down the shore, where hoverlifts are placing boats in an upright storage facility, water dripping from their hulls. Kuari carefully maneuvers the boat next to the dock, but she fails to compensate for the engine's pull to the right when put in reverse and hits the stern a little hard against the dock ::
(22:05:17) KateHarper: :: nods at him, then grins at Lexy :: Jack: We will! You two do the same!
(22:06:07) BenedictWolfe: :: barely notices the hard docking, since he probably would have docked much harder. ::
(22:06:47) Ilaihr: ::The walk through the corridor is interesting, the walls phasing between muted colours and an almost 'Pollock' like appearance.:: Self: I believe that lizard was out of date...
(22:06:50) EmilyAcacia: :: finishes her wine as well, setting the glass aside. She taps her hands on the arms of her chair, rocking to her feet and heading inside to throw everything of hers into the bag she brought, which wasn't much. She sets aside a crude paper bag, calling out to Navarro :: Doc I got you something~
(22:07:10) Kuari: :: apologizes, and the dock attendants moor their boat. She looks around for anything she's supposed to pick up, but she didn't take anything aboard ::
(22:07:18) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::begins grabbing things from the corners of the room where they'd been scattered the past few days; ski equipment, bits of clothing, some of it not hers...:: Self: I wonder if he'll miss that. ::hums and continues packing::
(22:07:49) LexyWright: :: walking toward the beach with Kate, still smiling :: Kate: That was nice. They were nice.
(22:08:22) KateHarper: :: takes her hand :: Lexy: Yes, that was heartwarming. I am glad to see that he is happy in retirement. Well, retirement from our life.
(22:08:41) DocNavarro: :: goes inside :: Emily: Oh, did you now?
(22:09:01) LexyWright: :: unconsciously entwines their fingers in a familiar way :: Kate: Jenna seems like a good match for him.
(22:09:22) EmilyAcacia: :: pushes the paper bag towards him, gesturing for him to do what one does with wrapped presents ::
(22:09:33) KateHarper: Lexy: Definitely. What can I say, we Risans are the best. :: grins ::
(22:09:37) Ilaihr: ::Sees a knight canter passed him chasing a butterfly and a flock of ducks; as he waits for the turbolift. He chuckles.:: Self: Most excellent.
(22:09:51) DocNavarro: :: takes the bag and smiles, then opens it, peering inside ::
(22:10:14) LexyWright: Kate: You'll get no argument from me, other than about the size of your ego. How do you get through doors? :: laughs ::
(22:11:05) KateHarper: Doors get out of my way! It is the future, after all.
(22:11:40) EmilyAcacia: :: He finds a big hanging web lined with sea glass and other beach oddities, a suncatcher she'd bought from a native craftsman. She pointed toward the end with a hook :: Doc: You hang it by a window, and it catches the light.
(22:12:41) BenedictWolfe: :: gets up and begins grabbing the few belongings they had brought with them. The rest they had had sent back to Atlantis before they left. :: Kuari/Tira: Well, I guess it's time we get back to the ship?
(22:12:52) DocNavarro: :: holds it up to the colorful sky out the glass doors and admires the way the light dances through it :: Emily: It's beautiful. ¡Gracias!
(22:13:28) KateHarper: :: makes their way back to the guest house ::
(22:13:57) EmilyAcacia: :: smiles warmly and resumes packing, searching for her loose electronics, which she can be good at hiding. ::
(22:14:16) LexyWright: Kate: I already packed for both of us while you were busy with your folks.
(22:14:34) Ilaihr: ::Steps around a group of Tholians, and into the turbolift. Although not before being lambasted by them in Haitian Creole, for being an inferior species. He shakes it off and continues on his way.::
(22:15:09) KateHarper: Lexy: Good, because I half-wondered if we had been robbed. Thank you, love. The morning will come faster than we expect.
(22:15:44) DocNavarro: Emily: I should do that myself. Meet you back aboard ship, or downstairs?
(22:15:44) LexyWright: :: nods, always sad to end a shore leave like this, but also excited to get back to work... and her PhD ::
(22:15:49) Kuari: :: nods to Wolfe, stepping onto the dock :: Wolfe: As much fun as it has been, home will be nice.
(22:16:21) KateHarper: Then again... :: puts her arms around her wife :: It is our last night here for a while. Make it one to remember?
(22:16:25) LexyWright: Suzuki> :: finishes packing her climbing gear and what few other things she brought with her ::
(22:17:05) LexyWright: :: blushes and grins ::
(22:17:21) Ilaihr: Self: I wonder if I've even actually left my quarters...
(22:17:24) RyleighGrey: :: her and Ethan had already been all packed, just enjoying the last bit of time they had on the shore ::
(22:18:24) EmilyAcacia: :: glances up from where she's stooped to peer under the bed, giving a half-smile, half-grimace :: Doc: Not sure how long I'll be. See you on the ship.
(22:19:03) BenedictWolfe: Kuari: It will. :: pulls his Comm badge out of his pocket and attaches it in its rightful place as he looks around him at the water of the gulf, the boat they were just aboard, to Kuari and Tira, and then gets that look every officer gets as they press their Comm badge :: Wolfe to Atlantis. Three to beam aboard. :: takes one last look toward land and then around before the Transporter grabs them ::
(22:19:05) LexyWright: :: the next morning, Lexy sat at breakfast, sunlight streaming in through the windows :: Jhnal: Thank you very much for your hospitality. We've had a wonderful time.
(22:19:06) DocNavarro: :: chuckles :: Good luck. :: heads out toward his room ::
(22:19:35) Kuari: :: shimmers ::
(22:19:55) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::grabs up her bags, punches in at the room console to checkout, and taps badge:: *TR*: One to beam back to Atlantis please..
(22:20:10) EmilyAcacia: :: emerges triumphantly from under the bed with her tricorder, huffing and taking a moment to rest. ::
(22:20:24) RyleighGrey: :: calls for the Comm herself, her and Ethan transporting and reappearing on Atlantis :: *TR:* Two to beam to Atlantis, please
(22:20:56) KateHarper: :: finally appears at breakfast, having overslept, still with bedhead and wearing only her underwear and a rumpled Starfleet shirt ::
(22:21:31) DocNavarro: :: returns to his room and packs up, getting back into uniform and wondering how in the hell this trip to Risa ended up working out so well ::
(22:22:04) KateHarper: :: yawns :: Good morning.
(22:22:33) Kuari: :: appears in the transporter room, the familiar sight bringing back to mind the last time she saw it ::
(22:23:12) KateHarper: Rolik> :: puts a big plate of bacon and eggs down in front of Kate :: Kathryn, you are going to be late! But first, eat, eat!
(22:23:16) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::shimmers away from Risa back to Atlantis. Catches a last glance of an unclaimed piece of clothing that she accidentally left on the bed and gives a little wistful sigh. what happened on Risa, stays on Risa.. maybe she'll contact the owner later ::
(22:23:37) BenedictWolfe: :: shimmers back to Atlantis, the normal on-board air he's used to filling his nose, and he's pretty much ready to get back to work. ::
(22:24:37) KateHarper: My favorite! :: starts devouring the breakfast ::
(22:24:44) Ilaihr: ::Steps off the turbolift on some deck, and proceeds to start walking down the corridor; uncertain of neither when the lizard would wear off, or where the holodeck was in relation to him at that moment.::
(22:24:45) LexyWright: Jhnal> Girls: We are always so happy to have you and so sad to see you go! But we know you will come again soon, yes? After you go and see Bill, of course. Did you pack already? Oh, what time is it?
(22:24:58) KateHarper: Rolik> We made the Earth food just for you.
(22:25:25) KateHarper: Of course, Mamá.
(22:25:28) Kuari: :: pulls in a deep breath and trots off the pad, glancing back at Wolfe :: Wolfe: I'd better check in on the bridge. After I get a uniform.
(22:25:43) EmilyAcacia: :: checks the time, still looking for her PADD... she pauses, realizes it's in her hand, and sighs. She sticks it in her bag and counts everything she came with again just to be sure. ::
(22:25:47) LexyWright: :: realizes how odd it is to have Earth food in this Risian kitchen; it hadn't even occurred to her ::
(22:26:06) BenedictWolfe: :: looks around :: Tira/Kuari: That was nice. That was nice. :: turns to Kuari :: See you there. :: takes Tira by the hand and they head of to his quarters ::
(22:26:31) KateHarper: :: finishes the lovingly-prepared breakfast :: I suppose I should go get ready then. The crew would not recognize me like this!
(22:26:46) EmilyAcacia: :: materializes on the Atlantis, offering a smile and nod to the transport operators of the day. She heads back to her room to change. ::
(22:26:51) LexyWright: Jhnal> Lexy: I was thinking, we should invite the father of our other daughter to come and visit. Please tell Bill to come and visit us!
(22:27:08) Ilaihr: ::As he walks the carpet ripple like water, at the tap of his cane. Gliding lackadaisically passed anyone on his path.::
(22:27:10) KateHarper: :: beams at the idea ::
(22:27:16) Kuari: :: hurriedly trots down the corridor, following the familiar route to her quarters, and goes inside. There, she looks around briefly to make sure everything is the way she left it, then replicates a uniform and puts it on ::
(22:27:42) LexyWright: Jhnal: Oh, really? I think he would love that! I'll definitely tell him. :: grins, putting her empty dishes in the reclaimer, already dressed and ready to go ::
(22:27:46) RyleighGrey: :: walks down the corridors, heading back to the bridge. She had already been changed and ready before they left Risa ::
(22:27:59) DocNavarro: :: eventually, he is fully packed and checked out of the hotel, and beams aboard Atlantis, looking out at the shore from the balcony as it shimmers away ::
(22:28:48) KateHarper: :: disappears from breakfast as the girl home at her parents' house, and reappears sometime later fully put together as Captain Harper, hair back in its captainly updo ::
(22:29:14) Ilaihr: ::Waves at a giant millipede, that he swear looks the spitting image of Major Wolfe.::
(22:29:29) LexyWright: :: has been chatting somewhat awkwardly with Kate's parents :: Kate: Ah, are you ready? We're just about out of time.
(22:29:58) KateHarper: :: nods :: Lexy: Yes, it is time to get back. :: gives each of her parents a long, lingering hug ::
(22:30:17) LexyWright: Suzuki> :: beams back aboard, beelining to her quarters to catch some shuteye before her shift ::
(22:30:25) BenedictWolfe: :: arrives back at his quarters a few moments later, turns in, grabs a uniform and disappears into the shower. ::
(22:31:14) KateHarper: Rolik> Kathryn, we will, of course, miss you. But we know that you are out doing what you love, and are good at. Be careful, alright?
(22:31:32) LexyWright: :: also hugs Kate's parents, knowing she can't get away without this ::
(22:31:51) KateHarper: I will, I promise. I love you! :: hugs them again ::
(22:32:13) LexyWright: Jhnal> Take care of each other, our girls. :: quickly wipes away a tear and smiles tremulously ::
(22:32:25) EmilyAcacia: :: is a bit saddened as she washes the salt and sand off in the shower ::
(22:32:48) KateHarper: :: takes Lexy's hand, then taps her commbadge :: *TR* Two to beam up.
(22:32:57) KateHarper: Rolik> :: blinks away tears, hoping no one notices ::
(22:33:13) LexyWright: :: smiles at R&J, then looks up at where she imagines Atlantis is ::
(22:33:32) KateHarper: :: and with that, they shimmer away ::
(22:33:35) Ilaihr: ::Realises that the corridor has suddenly become a mobius strip.:: Self: Well... thats inconvenient....
(22:33:43) DocNavarro: :: drops his bag off in his quarters, then heads for the bridge ::
(22:34:06) Kuari: :: leaves her quarters, trotting down the corridor looking like Commander Kuari, smelling like Risa's ocean but not seeing a problem with it ::
(22:34:11) BenedictWolfe: :: emerges having cleaned up quickly, drying off and quickly donning his uniform before giving Tira a kiss and heading to the Bridge.
(22:35:00) EmilyAcacia: :: sits and braids her hair into its usual up-do for duty before changing back into her uniform ::
(22:36:01) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::hoofs all of her stuff back to her quarters, and then proceeds to go to the bridge without realising she's still in the bar tshirt and the sweats that say 'property of starfleet medical' on the butt, not having bothered with a uniform for several days::
(22:36:20) CTO_LtC_Wolfe: :: arrives on the Bridge, takes over Tactical, and begins the work of preparing for departure. ::
(22:36:20) Ilaihr: ::Decides the only way off, he decides to tunnel through the wall with his cane. As he steps through the hole, he steps out onto the bridge, carrying the metal, the crystal, and the lizard. He looks back and wonders how he got there, but decides to simply take his seat, and store his things.::
(22:36:54) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: looks up from her console, giggling at Tailor as she caught sight of the CMO, returning to prepping for departure ::
(22:37:11) CO_CaptHarper: :: they head to their quarters as well, and she drops her bag on the bed :: That may have been my home, but this is our home.
(22:37:26) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Kate: Anywhere you are is home, to me.
(22:37:52) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Kate: Well... Anna is a plus. :: greets her cat happily ::

(22:54:10) CO_CaptHarper: MED: In fact, this news comes through the office of Rear Admiral Brooke Zuriyev, Starfleet Medical, and former XO of this ship. If you have her attention, you have done something special.

(22:56:10) CO_CaptHarper: Doctor Emilaina Acacia, it is my pleasure to hereby promote you to the rank of Lieutenant, with all according rights and privileges. :: holds up a pip between her fingers ::
(22:56:20) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: XO: I did not go down. I required some time amongst the stars.
