(21:20:28) CO_CaptHarper: :: in her ready room, watching the slipstream go by out the window while reading a PADD ::
(21:21:13) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: at the helm, monitoring the readings, but all is quite thankfully nominal ::
(21:21:34) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: sitting at the Sci/Ops console on the Bridge, looking over her research possibilities for her upcoming thesis work while the ship is in slipstream ::
(21:21:42) CTO_LtC_Wolfe: :: in the armory, leading the Marines in the most painful calesthenics allowed aboard a Federation starship.
(21:22:02) CO_CaptHarper: :: she decides to take care of some business that accumulated while they were at Risa :: *Iliahr* Harper to Iilaihr.
(21:22:15) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: snoring lightly ::
(21:22:25) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: at console, humming silently ::
(21:22:41) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: is groaning at the calistentics, muttering lowly curses aimed at Wolfe in frustration ::
(21:22:54) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: lies prone on her backless seat on the bridge just off center, peering at her half console to one side, the tip of her tail flicking idly on the floor ::
(21:23:34) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Taps commbadge.:: *CO*: Ilaihr here captain.
(21:23:42) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::is somewhere between her quarters and the bridge, actually dressed in uniform this time, hurrying for the nearest turbolift with a mug of caffeinated goodness in her hand::
(21:23:52) CO_CaptHarper: *ENG* Commander, please come to my ready room.
(21:24:40) MED_Lt_Acacia: :: sits at a console on the bridge, working on some records. ::
(21:25:26) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Self: :: quietly :: There's definitely enough material to work with.
(21:25:46) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::mug sloshing dangerously as she races down the corridor, just slides into the turbolift as the doors open:: TL: Bridge!
(21:26:02) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: *CO*: On my way captain. ::Grabs his cane, and trots off to the ready room door, hitting the chime with the head of his cane.::
(21:26:27) CO_CaptHarper: :: stands and moves out from behind the desk as the door chime rings :: Come in!
(21:27:18) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: is still cursing quietly at the torment Wolfe was putting them through... she enjoyed being a Marine, but this? This absolutely sucked ::
(21:27:37) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: looks up as Ilaihr heads into the ready room, with a small secret smile to herself before turning her attention back to the options pulled up on her console ::
(21:27:47) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::takes a slurp of coffee and leans against the turbolift wall as it moves upwards::
(21:28:18) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Steps inside, giving the captain he usual genial smile.:: CO: How may I be of assistance, Captain?
(21:28:26) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: watches Ilaihr cross to the ready room, then looks back to her console as he disappears inside ::
(21:28:34) MED_Lt_Acacia: :: rubs one of her eyes, double checking something in the records and making a note to follow up with a patient ::
(21:28:41) CO_CaptHarper: ENG: Ilaihr! Please, come in. Tea? :: moves to the replicator ::
(21:29:31) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: Mmm,please.
(21:30:11) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::TL arrives and doors swoosh open at the bridge; pushes off of the turbolift wall and sidles over to her station to sign in::
(21:30:25) CO_CaptHarper: :: replicates them a couple of cups and hands him one, then sits in one of the guest chairs ::
(21:30:43) CO_CaptHarper: ENG: You may have noticed that Commander Quinn is not aboard.
(21:31:57) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: idly playing a game about flying a starship while he flies the ship, but there's no flying really to be done at slipstream ::
(21:32:00) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: notes Tailor's entrance, but doesn't have to turn her head much ::
(21:32:43) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: I had. ::Nods, taking his tea and a small sip.:: Is everything alright?
(21:33:20) CO_CaptHarper: :: sips at her tea :: ENG: Yes, for him, at least. We will miss him, though. He took a posting on Jupiter Station working on the new Emergency Repair Hologram project.
(21:35:54) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: Ah excellent, he may end up working with some young officers I am acquainted with. ::Smiles.:: What news of his replacement? I'm sure they'll take time to become familiar with Atlantis' systems.
(21:36:11) CO_CaptHarper: :: grins at Ilaihr over the rim of her teacup :: ENG: Congratulations, Chief.
(21:36:33) ENG_Ens_Skovik: :: Sits idly at the bridge engineering station, monitering his console ::
(21:36:43) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: Do you require me to give a rundown of our non stand... ::Pauses.::
(21:37:03) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: does not entirely mind the exercise, but must recall that Vulcans have a higher pain tolerance, and keeps an eye on the others, just in case ::
(21:37:42) CO_CaptHarper: ENG: I have had to make use of your unique talents and... unorthodox ways of doing things. I look forward to seeing how you run things.
(21:38:32) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: staggers away from her opponent, redoing her hair into the previous bun before turning back to her waiting opponent, breathing heavily the entire time ::
(21:38:54) CO_CaptHarper: Syvek> :: is the exchange officer for Tira, and is onboard the Kvolir ship at Trondheim, calibrating their weapons systems and not being tortured by Wolfe or almost getting killed in any way ::
(21:39:18) ENG_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: Chief... ::Goes quiet, his mind wandering, remembering days long passed; a tear forming in the corner of his milky eyes.::
(21:40:28) CO_CaptHarper: CEO: Take good care of her, Ilaihr. She is my baby, after all. :: pats the chair arm ::
(21:41:24) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: I will Captain.
(21:41:46) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: Seems I have much work to attend to.
(21:41:54) CO_CaptHarper: CEO: I know you will, Chief. Now get out there and see what your new Ensign is up to.
(21:42:28) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: lands on her back from a well-placed kick, letting her head drop to the floor and breathing heavy :: Self: owww.
(21:43:10) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Finishes his tea, placing the cup on the desk. After retaking his feet he nods again, and turns for the door.::
(21:43:21) ENG_Ens_Skovik: :: looks back at the entrance to the readyroom as Ilaihr returns, idle interest on his face. ::
(21:43:44) CO_CaptHarper: :: smiles as the old Aenar exits, content that Atlantis will be well taken care of ::
(21:46:29) CO_CaptHarper: :: finishes her tea as well, and moves back to her seat behind the desk, then begins to rummage through it ::
(21:47:08) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Smiles at the bridge as he trundles over to his spot.::
(21:47:22) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: sips at her water, still laying on the ground to try and regain her breath ::
(21:47:44) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: looks up and directs her smile at her friend as he comes out of the RR ::
(21:47:59) CO_CaptHarper: *Suzuki* Harper to Suzuki. :: hates that she's going to wake her ::
(21:48:52) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: starts awake :: ...Suzuki here. :: rubs her face, trying to sound wide awake ::
(21:49:20) CO_CaptHarper: *Suzuki* Please come to the ready room, and grab Lt. Navarro when you pass through the bridge.
(21:49:30) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: offers Ilaihr a knowing, toothy smile ::
(21:50:11) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Nods at Kuari, before slowly sitting in his seat, and turning to the new ensign.:: ENG: Greetings Ensign.
(21:50:14) MED_Lt_Acacia: :: smiles at Ilaihr as well, then returns to her work. She opens a patient case that's been stumping her, and reads it again. ::
(21:50:23) CTO_LtC_Wolfe: :: nods to Ilaihr in respect when Ilaihr's eyes pass across him. ::
(21:51:22) ENG_Ens_Skovik: :: nods his head respectfully to Ilaihr. :: ENG: Greetings, Commander.
(21:52:53) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: now extremely very awake and wondering about security footage in a panic :: *Harper* Aye, Captain. On my way. :: already pulling on her uniform ::
(21:53:42) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::smiles to Ilaihr as he comes out of the ready room::
(21:54:50) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: hurriedly washes her face and runs a comb through her hair, pulling it up into a ponytail. Navarro too? Shit. Shit shit shit. ::
(21:56:26) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: oblivious, he's still flying a spaceship while flying a spaceship ::
(21:56:29) MED_Lt_Acacia: :: leans back in her chair, squinting at her console for a while. After thinking, she starts tentatively typing things. Connective tissue? ...Fat metabolism? ::
(21:57:17) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: stands at the door to her quarters, taking deep breaths and forcibly composing herself before she exits into the corridor. Who cares? Jester don't care. ::
(21:58:24) CO_CaptHarper: :: figures Suzuki will be a few minutes since she was asleep off-shift, so she settles in to reading some more news from around the fleet ::
(21:58:47) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: limps onto the bridge, sore and muscles twinging from the workout as she settled at her station, muttering slightly in discomfort ::
(21:59:45) CO_CaptHarper: Syvek> :: finishes the weapon calibrations of the Kvolir vessel, and is still not almost being killed in any way ::
(22:00:00) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Opens up Atlantis's EPS schematics.:: ENG: Tell me about yourself, Ensign. From where do you hail?
(22:00:14) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: checks her messages as she changes and prepares to return to the bridge. So far, nothing too pressing, just a few minor updates from publications she remains subscribed to. Nothing from any contacts ::
(22:01:37) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: continues to force this external calm as she rides the TL up to what is probably certain doom ::
(22:01:55) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: has showered and changed into a clean uniform, hair pulled back in a tight bun before settling at her station, wincing at the soreness she felt everywhere... Thanks to her CO ::
(22:02:08) CO_CaptHarper: :: then officially submits Ilaihr's change in posting to HQ ::
(22:02:30) MED_Lt_Acacia: :: rests her elbow on the console keyboard, chin in her palm. She scrolls through what appears to be a person's entire genome, pausing occasionally to highlight segments. ::
(22:03:27) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: signs out of her personal console and makes towards the TL ::
(22:03:49) ENG_Ens_Skovik: :: turns to him again, responding rather dryly. :: CEO: I come from Vulcan. Hence the ears.
(22:04:55) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ENG: Not all Vulcans are not all born on Vulcan. I was never born. ::Chuckles.:: I do miss Vulcan.
(22:05:19) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: the TL door opens onto the Bridge, and with a calm nod to the day shift, she crosses to her customary station, currently occupied by Navarro ::
(22:05:48) TAC_LCdr_TLira: :: steps onto the bridge to hear the tail end of Ilaihr’s sentence and lifts an eyebrow, but takes her station silently ::
(22:05:49) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: looks up as Suzuki approaches, somewhat surprised to see her up and about this time of day ::
(22:06:49) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: quietly, with forced absolute calm, not looking him in the eye :: NAV: Captain wants to see us, Zorro.
(22:07:08) ENG_Ens_Skovik: CEO: You have been?
(22:07:08) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: doesn't have her console signed in, working on trying to apply pressure to her thighs ::
(22:07:55) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: lets the "us" part of that sink in and suddenly wonders exactly what got them caught, but he plays it cool and sets the extra layer of autopilot, then stands :: Suzuki: After you, Jester.
(22:08:26) CTO_LtC_Wolfe: :: rotates his head around to different directions, releasing a loud cracking sound that everyone on the Bridge can hear :: self: Ahh...
(22:09:05) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ENG: I took the trials there. I crossed the Fire plains. I studied on Mount Seleya for twenty years.
(22:09:23) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: head shoots up at the sudden crack, looking at Wolfe indigantly :: CTO: Damn, sir! That was loud!
(22:09:55) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: looks over at the gunshot neck-crack ::
(22:09:59) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: glances briefly at the sounds from Wolfe and Grey's subsequent outburst, but crosses to the RR door, walking erect and with confidence that is only skin-deep ::
(22:10:26) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: hears Wolfe’s crack, and moves her own neck side to side, cracking her own ::
(22:10:27) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: looks at Wolfe in curiosity ::
(22:10:32) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: but walks along with Jester anyway, playing it cool still ::
(22:10:38) MED_Lt_Acacia: :: was keeping her composure upon overhearing Navarro and Suzuki, but Wolfe's neck crack makes her shudder. She glances over at Wolfe, glad he's still alive. ::
(22:10:44) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Chuckles, shaking his head at Wolfe.::
(22:10:48) CTO_LtC_Wolfe: :: smug look :: TAC2: A workout like that really loosens up the muscles.
(22:11:42) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: returns his smug look with her own irritated one :: CTO: Mmh... might be the case for you, sir.
(22:11:50) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: takes a breath and chimes the RR door ::
(22:12:08) ENG_Ens_Skovik: CEO: This is very impressive. Most non-Vulcans would not be so dedicated.
(22:12:19) CO_CaptHarper: :: puts down the PADD and stands, leaving something on the desk :: Come in!
(22:12:25) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::smirks at the neck crack and continues what she was working on, taking another large drag from her mug::
(22:12:47) CTO_LtC_Wolfe: :: slowly forms fists and gives them a squeeze, producing more popping ::
(22:13:31) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: walks smartly into the room as the door opens, leaving room for Zorro as she stands at attention before the Captain's desk :: CO: Reporting as ordered, Sir.
(22:13:48) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: stands at attention next to Jester, figuring that even the worst case for this won't be the end of the world ::
(22:13:56) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: CO: Capitana.
(22:13:57) MED_Lt_Acacia: :: has gone back to intently staring at a series of C, T, A, and G in varying orders. ::
(22:14:04) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: furrows her brow at Wolfe ::
(22:14:20) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: shudders, before sighing and cracking her own knuckles easily enough before turning attention back to her sore thighs, trying to relax the soreness out before they got stiff ::
(22:14:59) CO_CaptHarper: :: smiles and crossed out from behind the barrier of the desk :: At ease! And I am dreadfully sorry to have to wake you, Jester, but I thought the wingmen should fly together.
(22:15:02) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: glances at Wolfe, and stretches backwards, cracking her back. She should really stop slouching ::
(22:15:08) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: attempts to ignore all of this and focus on her research ::
(22:15:34) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: cautiously goes to at ease, this not sounding like a dressing-down ::
(22:15:49) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ENG: Retracing Falor's journey was certainly an interesting experience, being blind as I was at the time. But I really should go back sometime.
(22:16:02) CTO_LtC_Wolfe: :: is completely straight-faced through this interaction. ::
(22:16:18) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: attempts to calmly take a more relaxed stance, but directs a curious look at Harper :: CO: Captain?
(22:16:28) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: perks an ear towards Grey, hearing more cracking ::
(22:17:42) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: takes a deep inhale as she presses her thumbs into her thigh even deeper, slowly exhaling it as she increased the pressure, muttering ow-ow-ow quietly as she tried to beat out the soreness ::
(22:18:26) CO_CaptHarper: :: clasps her hands, the smile still on her face :: You two have demonstrated exceptional abilities in piloting the crafts you have chose to master, both Mustang :: nods to Suzuki :: and Sovereign-class starship. :: nods to Navarro ::
(22:18:33) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: turns back to her work ::
(22:19:15) CO_CaptHarper: ::: diplomatically leaves off Navarro getting shot down twice recently, leaving his Mustang skills in question ::
(22:19:50) ENG_Ens_Skovik: CEO: My experiences in the more... traditional ceremonies of my people are limited. My parents kept me focused on my studies.
(22:19:59) CO_CaptHarper: Suzuki: Not to mention your handling of the ship on the night shift!
(22:20:30) MED_Lt_Acacia: :: tilts her head, pulling up a second window with lists of letters and numbers that she seems to read fluently. She keeps highlighting things, seeming quite intent in her work. ::
(22:21:07) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: smiles and nods, graciously accepting the compliment ::
(22:21:18) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: is beginning to realize that this isn't what she thought it was going to be, and cautiously inclines her head at the Captain's recognition ::
(22:23:11) CO_CaptHarper: The recent battles were tough...
(22:23:28) CO_CaptHarper: And I noticed what you two were doing in your Mustangs. I have to say, I am impressed...
(22:23:59) CO_CaptHarper: And a bit jealous! :: grins ::
(22:24:12) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: unable to suppress a momentary glance at Zorro at that ::
(22:24:14) CO_CaptHarper: :: occasionally longs for her days as a fighter pilot ::
(22:24:23) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: side-eyes Jester for half a second ::
(22:25:07) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ENG: Nothing wrong with that, my boy. Needless to say I did not complete the Kolinahr. ::Smiles.::
(22:25:18) MED_Lt_Acacia: :: raises an eyebrow as her emotional eavesdropping picks up a sudden spike in the pilots' heart rates ::
(22:25:22) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: I will try not to lose any more fighters, Capitana.
(22:26:01) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: It was hell out there, I know. You did your best. Just be sure not to forget Firefly next time you are grinding away in a dogfight.
(22:26:52) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: smiles and nods, smiles and nods ::
(22:27:53) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: widens her eyes imperceptibly at "grinding away" but nods to try to cover it ::
(22:28:05) ENG_Ens_Skovik: :: nods :: CEO: If any non-Vulcans have completed it, I have never heard of them.
(22:28:50) CO_CaptHarper: :: palms the things off her desk :: With all of that, it is my pleasure to promote you both, to Marine Captain :: smiles at Suzuki :: and to full Lieutenant. :: then to Navarro :: Congratulations! :: moves to swap Jester's collar pin ::
(22:29:51) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: briefly stunned :: CO: Thank you, Captain. Firefly. I will make you proud.
(22:30:18) CO_CaptHarper: :: removes Suzuki's silver bar and replaces it with a double silver bar :: Suzuki: I know you will, since you already have.
(22:30:34) CO_CaptHarper: :: then moves to Navarro and swipes his half pip ::
(22:30:57) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ENG: The rituals gives one a choice, providing personal clarity in the process. In the end I was given clarity on emotion, that prevented me from purging myself of it entirely.
(22:31:06) NAV_LtJG_Navarro: :: stands up straight :: CO: Gracias, Firefly. I remain at your service, as always.
(22:31:41) CO_CaptHarper: :: pins a full pip on its place :: NAV: As always, Zorro. :: takes a step back and smiles at them both ::
(22:31:42) ENG_Ens_Skovik: CEO: No one is perfect... Commander
(22:32:44) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: nods at her Captain, her customary composure easier to hold now that she knows she's getting promoted instead of yelled at ::
(22:32:58) CO_CaptHarper: Congratulations to you both, and good hunting out there, but most importantly, keep coming home afterwards.
(22:33:20) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: rises from her station, beginning to try and pace a bit before retaking her position ::
(22:33:43) NAV_Lt_Navarro: Thank you, ma'am. Oh, and we'll be exiting slipstream shortly.
(22:34:34) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> CO: Will do, Captain. Permission to return to off-duty status?
(22:34:36) NAV_Lt_Navarro: :: makes a note to maybe revise his combat style to be a biiiiit safer ::
(22:34:57) CO_CaptHarper: :: nods to Suzuki :: Granted. Sleep well. NAV: Thank you, see you on the bridge. Dismissed!
(22:35:32) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: now that the adrenaline is fading, is suddenly sleepy :: CO: Thank you, Captain. NAV: ...Congratulations, Lieutenant.
(22:35:38) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ENG: Such has been true for my 230 years, and so shall it be long after. ::Chuckles.::
(22:36:21) NAV_Lt_Navarro: Suzuki: Congratulations, Captain! :: grins at her ::
(22:36:22) ENG_Ens_Skovik: :: cants his head to the side. :: CEO: Where do you come from, Commander?
(22:37:43) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Goes quiet for a moment before smirking.:: ENG: Many places, my boy.
(22:37:45) CO_CaptHarper: :: watches with pride as her pilots congratulate each other and head back to work ::
(22:38:07) MED_Lt_Acacia: :: looks up as the two exit. She glances to their collars and looks back at her console screen, smirking bemusedly. ::
(22:38:10) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> :: sleepy, flashes a secret smile at him in return before catching herself, but thankfully was already exiting the RR :: NAV: Since we both got promoted, guess I'll have to beat you at pool so you can get the celebratory drinks.
(22:38:33) CTO_LtC_Wolfe: :: looks up at Suzuki as she exits the Ready Room and grins at her :: Suzuki: Drinks are on you tonight, Captain. :: but sees she's tired :: In the meantime, go get some rest. You've earned it.
(22:38:35) NAV_Lt_Navarro: :: chuckles :: You can try. Lately, only Lt. Grey has been able to manage it.
(22:38:42) ENG_Ens_Skovik: :: muses a moment. :: CEO: Not Andoria then?
(22:39:03) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: eyes Navarro and Suzuki knowingly, but not too knowingly ::
(22:39:26) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: grins wickedly at hearing her name :: NAV: You know it. I'll be down there after shift if you want to try reclaim your victory.
(22:39:51) NAV_Lt_Navarro: TAC2: I will be there, don't you worry.
(22:41:03) NAV_Lt_Navarro: :: takes the helm, having been inspired ::
(22:41:04) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ENG: I'm sure that's where my genes were spliced together. I was given life twice, but never born. I am, a child of science, life breathed into me amongst the stars.
(22:41:06) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: snickers as she settles back down at her station, wickedly grinning the entire time. She had a plan. ::
(22:41:26) CSO_Cdr_Wright: Suzuki> NAV: Is that so? We'll have to see about that. :: waves at Wolfe's comment before heading for the TL, stifling a yawn ::
(22:41:41) CO_CaptHarper: :: enters the bridge a few minutes later :: XO: How are we doing, Number One?
(22:42:27) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: looks up at Harper :: CO: Approaching Trondheim, Captain.
(22:42:49) NAV_Lt_Navarro: :: checks the timer :: CO/XO: Slipstream exit in one minute.
(22:42:53) ENG_Ens_Skovik: CEO: Interesting.
(22:43:38) CO_CaptHarper: :: takes her seat, glad that they are not rushing back here to defend the colony again ::
(22:43:52) NAV_Lt_Navarro: All: Slipstream exit in five, four, three...
(22:43:55) MED_Lt_Acacia: :: once again takes some time to just look at her console and think before finally closing whatever she was working on and moving on to another record. ::
(22:44:10) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: smiles at Harper, knowing promotions energize her ::
(22:44:15) ENG_Ens_Skovik: :: turns back to his console, keeping his attention on the monitors as they prepare to exit::
(22:44:21) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ENG: It certainly was. ::Cackles like the madman he is.::
(22:44:43) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: peers over at Ilaihr's cackling ::
(22:45:02) CO_CaptHarper: ACTION> Atlantis returns to normal space. The star system is much the same, as we were only away ten days or so, and is defended by the Kvolir, Discovery, and Endeavour. Challenger and the damaged Columbia have departed.
(22:45:12) CO_CaptHarper: (and the Sovereign left as well)
(22:45:20) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: swipes away her research and makes initial contact with Trondheim colony and other ships in the fleet as they exit slipstream, making operational preparations to enter orbit ::
(22:45:26) NAV_Lt_Navarro: CO: Normal space achieved. Drift, 92 light-seconds.
(22:45:58) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: startles at the cackling of the Old Man of Atlantis, turning in her chair to gaze at Ilaihr :: CEO: You... could be an evil villain if it struck your fancy, sir.
(22:46:04) CO_CaptHarper: NAV: Take us in at impulse, no need for warp.
(22:46:31) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: gazes up at the main viewer ::
(22:46:33) NAV_Lt_Navarro: CO: Impulse, aye. :: flies Atlantis on in to the colony world ::
(22:46:53) CO_CaptHarper: :: watches the main viewer as Trondheim grows larger, grateful to see no Xovul in orbit ::
(22:47:00) CTO_LtC_Wolfe: :: raises his eyebrows happily at the increased accuracy of Slipstream flight... at least some portion of that coming from better shield geometry. ::
(22:47:11) MED_Lt_Acacia: :: looks up from her work to watch their approach with a smile ::
(22:47:14) CO_CaptHarper: CSO: Commander, contact the colony and let them know we have their supplies, and coordinate the transfer.
(22:47:21) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: scans surroundings ::
(22:48:13) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: TAC2: Oh.... when I was a younger man, I was quite the troublemaker... ::Shudders, before turning in his seat.:: All: Greetings, Starbird Atlantis. Welcome back to our world.
(22:48:21) CSO_Cdr_Wright: CO: Aye, Captain. :: transmits this message to the colony, making careful arrangements ::
(22:48:41) CO_CaptHarper: :: stands and turns to Ilaihr, who she heard cackling, and is now clearly channeling the Neme ::
(22:49:05) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: takes a moment to absorb Ilaihr's words, and understands ::
(22:49:07) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Bows his head a the Captain.::
(22:49:16) CO_CaptHarper: CEO: I was going to tell you to contact the Neme, but it would seem we were noticed. Glad to be here again.
(22:49:40) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::turns from her console, hearing the change in Ilaihr's tone, looking at the viewscreen::
(22:50:10) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: glances to watch Ilaihr before turning back to the viewscreen and her console ::
(22:50:26) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: looks back at Ilaihr at the voice change ::
(22:50:42) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: looks back at Ilaihr, wondering if it taxes him to channel the Neme from such a great distance ::
(22:51:19) CO_CaptHarper: CEO: I have good news! :: smiles and opens her hands :: Our leaders have agreed to allow us to take Amber Sun aboard as a cultural liaison.
(22:51:24) MED_Lt_Acacia: :: reflexively grabs for her medkit to make sure it's still there, but leaves it under her chair. ::
(22:52:51) ENG_Ens_Skovik: :: wants to ask what he's missing, but decides to stay quiet.::
(22:52:52) NAV_Lt_Navarro: :: places the ship in standard orbit, then watches the conversation unfold ::
(22:53:13) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: That is most grateful news. There is much he will be able to teach us one day, about crossing the infinte dark.
(22:53:49) SCI_LtJG_Jude: :: feels an uncertainty from the ensign :: ENG: Telepathic bears. :: she shortly clarifies ::
(22:53:54) CO_CaptHarper: CEO: And we hope to learn from him, as well. Thank you for allowing him to join us.
(22:55:11) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: We have glimpsed the Eduda's mind. And know of the wonders and terrors of the expanse. But will have experiences that we can fully understand.
(22:55:50) MED_Lt_Acacia: :: keeps an ear to what goes on on the bridge while working on her case files ::
(22:56:14) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: CO: He is ready to be relocated to your Starbird.
(22:56:24) CO_CaptHarper: CEO: The... Eduda abides much, to channel you this way. Thank you, for helping him heal.
(22:56:30) CO_CaptHarper: CEO: We are ready to receive Amber Sun.
(22:56:40) ENG_Ens_Skovik: :: wonders how that is a reasonable explanation, but shrugs. :: SCI: Thank you.
(22:57:23) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: likes the word "Starbird" to describe Atlantis ::
(22:57:34) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: listens as she watches the viewscreen intently, remembering what happened the *last* time they were here. ::
(22:57:50) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: ::Places his palms together, with Amber Sun appearing in the command circle in a purple haze.::
(22:58:10) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: turns her attention to the haze ::
(22:58:24) CO_CaptHarper: :: smiles brightly, the purple haze all in her brain :: Amber Sun: Welcome back, Amber Sun!
(22:58:32) MED_Lt_Acacia: :: blinks, looking up. This doesn't even surprise her anymore, she just smiles, glad to see the bear. ::
(22:58:46) CSO_Cdr_Wright: :: smiles and claps her hands with excitement to see Amber Sun ::
(22:58:53) CMO_Lt_Tailor: ::gives a welcoming nod to Amber:: Amber: Good to see you again ::smiles::
(22:59:13) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: <Ambersun> All: Amber Sun, Chasing Celestial Trails. ::Hops to his hind legs, and attempts a salute to the captain.::
(22:59:45) CO_CaptHarper: :: salutes the Salbjorn back :: Amber Sun, Chasing Celestial Trails indeed!
(22:59:55) TAC2_1LT_Grey: :: grins and waves at Amber Sun slightly from her station ::
(23:00:08) NAV_Lt_Navarro: :: this is normal now, just gives Amber Sun a nod ::
(23:00:29) ENG_Ens_Skovik: :: looks blankly at Amber a moment, studying him a moment before turning back to his console.::
(23:00:42) XO_Cdr_Kuari: :: stands, nodding to Amber Sun ::
(23:00:44) CEO_LtCdr_Ilaihr: <Ambersun> ::Waves emphatically at Grey.:: TAC2: heeeLLLLOOOO!
