After 24-Jun-2020 00:00:00
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 21:15:08
:: greeting people as they arrive - the weather is just perfect as the sun sets over a blue sea, the crashing of waves, and a light pleasant breeze ::
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 21:16:32
:: arrives with both Doc and Suzuki, holding onto one of Doc's arms. She looks out at the sea, seeming distant but at least relaxed. ::
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 21:17:13
:: wearing a tuxedo with Spanish flair in the cummerbun and bow tie, and arrives with Emily and Kimiko on his arms ::
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:18:14
Suzuki> :: stands next to Doc in a summer yukata covered in colorful flowers, her hair up and pinned in a somewhat ornate fashion ::
TAC LCdr T’Lira 24-Jun-2020 21:18:59
:: has decided to try something new today and is in a simple dress in a floral pattern, moving almost immediately to stand out of the way ::
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 21:19:16
:: wearing a floor-length evening gown in emerald green silk, the flowing bias-cut bodice having bow detail perforated in the neckline, loose through the bust with spaghetti straps arching over the shoulders, and a wide waistband wrap, gathered at the rear, knotted at the front and left to hang, with a straight-cut trained circle skirt slitted high in the front ::
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 21:19:41
:: has chosen a dress that combines Spanish frills and exotic tribal patterned fabric, an interesting franken-sari ::
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 21:19:42
:: flits over to Zorro, Acacia, and Suzuki :: Welcome! It is good to see you here!
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:20:25
Suzuki> :: inclines her head :: CO: Captain.
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 21:20:27
:: grins, waving with her free hand :: CO: It's nice to be.. back?
XO Cdr Kuari 24-Jun-2020 21:20:30
:: trots into the event setup wearing her fancy blue and purple cultural garb, the whole thing resembling a backless horse blanket with tassled ends along each side and strappy decorations around the base of the tail ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 24-Jun-2020 21:20:31
Ethan> :: escorts his wife into the room, both in semi-formal wear, he was in a casual blazer-slack-button-down combo, pausing before scanning the room and excusing himself from Ryleigh, heading over to get something to drink, pausing to wave at Acacia ::
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 21:20:36
¡Gracias, capitana!
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 21:22:02
:: perks up a bit and spins, making eye contact with Ethan and smiling. She hadn't run into him since 'returning', and she's glad to know he's okay for some reason. ::
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 21:22:31
:: moves to T'Lira :: TAC: What a lovely dress, T'Lira! Welcome!
CTO LtC Wolfe 24-Jun-2020 21:22:44
:: arrives, wearing a silver tuxedo with a fluffy blue tie that fills the opening of the coat, and an emblem perfectly placed in the middle of that tie. The jacket extends almost to his knees to create a flow, yet above the waist it is form-fitting and still lavish and elegant. In short... it's very... NOT Wolfe. ::
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 21:23:04
Emily/Jester: May I get you some drinks?
TAC2 1Lt Grey 24-Jun-2020 21:23:12
:: wearing a dark blue gown that showed off her figure, and a diamond barrette that held her hair back in a french twist, before making her way over to her friend. :: MED: Enjoying yourself so far?
XO Cdr Kuari 24-Jun-2020 21:23:26
:: is perpetually smiling, nodding at everyone, choosing a few to admire their fancy attire ::
TAC LCdr T’Lira 24-Jun-2020 21:23:49
CO: Greetings, Captain.
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 21:24:17
:: then notices Wolfe wearing something very un-Wolfe-like :: CTO: Benedict! That suits you!
SCI Lt Jude 24-Jun-2020 21:24:18
:: is wearing a nice patterned shirt with half if it unbuttoned, and poofy pants, wandering around ::
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 21:24:36
:: smiles, nodding to Doc and releasing his arm :: NAV: Surprise me.
CTO LtC Wolfe 24-Jun-2020 21:25:02
:: gestures and bows his head to Harper. :: CO: Thank you, Captain.
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 21:25:04
:: nods, looking around :: TAC2: I'm still a bit off, but.. this is awesome. Look at everyone's dresses! :: she coos ::
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:25:38
Suzuki> Zorro: Yes, please, that would be nice. :: looks over at Emily and quirks the corners of her lips up ever so slightly, an attempt at a friendly smile ::
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 21:25:52
:: removes to the bar, finding that they're serving Italian wine ::
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 21:26:33
:: catches Suzuki's glance, seeming a bit surprised but returning the smile with equal, if not more warmness. She's almost too eager to make friends--to be liked. ::
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:27:33
Suzuki> MED: May I call you Emily?
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 21:28:10
:: finds Kuari and beams :: XO: Hi Kuari! I love what you are wearing!
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 21:28:14
:: blinks, nodding :: Suzuki: Of course. And.. is Kimiko alright? :: she checks ::
SCI Lt Jude 24-Jun-2020 21:28:57
:: gravitates to T’Lira and silently stands next to her after giving a short nod ::
XO Cdr Kuari 24-Jun-2020 21:29:54
:: turns her head to Harper, her smile beaming anew :: CO: Do you? Your dress is much more beautiful! :: admires ::
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:29:58
Suzuki> :: nods :: MED: You may call me Kimiko, yes. :: pauses briefly :: I'm sorry, this is... New to me.
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 21:30:47
XO: Thank you! :: smiles brightly :: It is so good to see everyone here, together.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 24-Jun-2020 21:31:15
Ethan> :: returns with two glasses of wine, offering one to Ryleigh before turning his attention to Acacia :: MED: You look stunning, Acacia.
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 21:31:26
:: pauses for a beat, then let it all out in a laugh that's a little too loud :: Kimiko: Oh! Ha! Me too. I mean, I'm not even.. super experienced with dating, and I grew up in Iowa, so if my human family ever-- :: she realizes she's rambling, blushes and stops, waving a hand :: TAC2: Oh, thank you~
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 21:31:32
:: grabs three glasses of the Italian take on cabernet and brings them back with him ::
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:32:49
:: is late, comes hurrying down the steps from the resort in a long, gauzy white dress with spaghetti straps and gold accents, trying to capture some of the old Tuscan flavor :: CO: Sorry I'm late! My massage ran long!
TAC2 1Lt Grey 24-Jun-2020 21:33:15
:: sips at her wine delicately, giving a slight wave towards the captain and Kuari, excusing herself to approach the officers. :: CO: You're looking absolutely amazing tonight, ma'am.
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 21:33:21
CSO: As good a reason as any, love! But you look so beautiful!
TAC2: Thank you, Ryleigh! That dress is stunning on you too, I must say!
XO Cdr Kuari 24-Jun-2020 21:33:51
CO: Yes it is! :: looks around for more crew who aren't immediately occupied, then focuses on Wright running up and grins at her, then at Grey ::
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:34:06
:: grins, looking around at everyone all fancied up ::
SCI Lt Jude 24-Jun-2020 21:34:25
:: is just standing there. chilling ::
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 21:34:30
:: hands a glass to Emily and Kimiko as he returns ::
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:34:47
Suzuki> :: barely suppresses an actual smile at Emily :: MED: No, you'll have to tell me about it sometime. I'm interested.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 24-Jun-2020 21:34:50
:: grins, looking to Kuari then to Wright :: XO/CSO: You as well, ma'ams.
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 21:35:46
:: takes the drink with a grateful nod and immediately sips from it, looking between the partygoers with a darting glance. She catches Kimiko's answer, replying with a nod, she's not hard to get a story out of ::
XO Cdr Kuari 24-Jun-2020 21:35:48
:: nods back at Grey, appreciating her dress ::
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:35:53
Suzuki> :: takes the glass with a small bow at Zorro :: NAV: Thank you. I continue to be impressed at how well you handle so many things at once. :: perks an eyebrow ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 24-Jun-2020 21:36:00
:: steps to the wine bar and selects a Dolcetto. Picking it up, he also grabs a Primitivo to give the Dolcetto some time to breathe. ::
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 21:36:25
:: chuckles :: Suzuki: I surprise myself most days.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 24-Jun-2020 21:36:25
Ethan> :: chuckles at the ladies talking, sipping his drink slowly before double-checking where Ryleigh was, and turning back to talk to Navarro :: NAV: Paying homage to your heritage?
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:36:43
:: smiles at Ryleigh :: TAC2: Thank you! Oh, you look lovely.
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 21:36:44
Ethan: Of course!
TAC2 1Lt Grey 24-Jun-2020 21:37:59
Ethan> NAV: I do remember visiting Spain myself, it was absolutely stunning. :: comments after a sip of his wine ::
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 21:38:02
:: selects a couple of glasses of wine for her and Lexy and hands her one ::
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:38:27
:: takes it with a dazzling smile :: CO: Thank you, darling. You look... amazing.
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 21:38:32
Ethan: Ah, don't get me started! Best place on Earth, if you ask me. But I might be slightly biased.
TAC LCdr T’Lira 24-Jun-2020 21:38:45
:: glances over at Linxi, nods, and returns to surveilling the room. "Small talk" as it is called is not one of her strong suits. ::
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 21:39:19
:: she melts a little, still, at that smile, and replies in a more private tone than her hostess voice :: CSO: So do you, love.
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 21:39:37
:: chuckles :: NAV: Unlike most humans, I don't claim to have lived in the best place on Earth.. :: she jokes wryly ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 24-Jun-2020 21:39:58
Ethan> NAV: Have you ever visited Scotland before? If there's two spots that could claim for beautiful scenery, it's Spain and Scotland.
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 21:40:30
:: mocks the accent :: Ethan: Aye, I have! MED: Well, that's because you haven't. :: grins ::
SCI Lt Jude 24-Jun-2020 21:40:32
:: coughs :: T’Lira: Never. Been to Spain before.
TAC LCdr T’Lira 24-Jun-2020 21:41:08
:: blinks :: SCI: Neither have I.
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 21:41:14
:: looks between Doc and Ryleigh :: TAC2/NAV: You know, I'm planning a trip to Alk--ahh--Betazese, you know, otherhome, some time this trip. That'll give your Earth territories run for their money. :: she muses :: and you'd both expressed and interest in seeing it..
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:41:21
:: gives Kate a little bashful look and bats her eyelashes ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 24-Jun-2020 21:41:52
Ethan> :: breaks into laughter at the accent-mocking, chuckling :: NAV: Grey's family comes from Scotland, well, her dad's side does at least, so she visits family when we go.
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:41:52
Suzuki> :: listening with cool interest, not being much of a talker ::
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 21:42:06
:: melts even further, still managing to be positively smitten with her wife after a couple of years of marriage ::
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:42:32
:: looks out over the Tuscan countryside :: CO: It's absolutely beautiful here.
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 21:43:04
:: slides an arm around Lexy's waist :: CSO: It is. We should spend a bit of our leave here.
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 21:43:14
MED: I would love to see it, sí.
XO Cdr Kuari 24-Jun-2020 21:43:36
:: finds herself drawn towards more crew, attempting to greet everyone ::
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:43:57
:: mirrors the gesture :: CO: Oh, lets! I bet these twisty roads are fun on a motorcycle, hmmm?
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 21:44:03
ACTION> An orchestra begins playing, providing light background music, at first.
SCI Lt Jude 24-Jun-2020 21:44:19
TAC: Nice. Dress. :: clears throat ::
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 21:44:37
CSO: That does sound fun! I will have it transported here!
TAC2 1Lt Grey 24-Jun-2020 21:44:37
:: excuses herself, returning to where her friends were talking and slipping into the conversation :: MED/NAV: Did I hear mention of your other home, Acacia?
TAC LCdr T’Lira 24-Jun-2020 21:44:55
:: tilts her head slightly to the side :: SCI: Are you well, Lieutenant?
XO Cdr Kuari 24-Jun-2020 21:45:10
:: perks her ears up towards the music, listening and appreciating ::
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:45:19
:: grins at Kate, then turns to look at the orchestra ::
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 21:45:27
:: nods lightly :: TAC2: I need to make a visit for.. reasons. No reason I can't bring y'all along, you can stay with my grandma or my otherfather--if you're up for it. :: she's obviously really excited ::
SCI Lt Jude 24-Jun-2020 21:45:42
TAC: If you are asking about my throat, yes.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 24-Jun-2020 21:46:27
Ethan> MED: That sounds like a lot of fun, definitely give us a ring when you're going. :: glances over to Ryleigh and grinning, setting their glasses down on the near table and tugging her onto the dance floor ::
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 21:47:10
:: blinks, surprised that Ethan wants to go but even more excited at the prospect. Just to be sure she casts a glance at Suzuki :: Suzuki: And if you wanted to...
TAC LCdr T’Lira 24-Jun-2020 21:47:14
SCI: It does not appear that way, but I will... what is the phrase, take your word for it?
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:47:25
Suzuki> :: after he leaves :: MED: I have never been to Betazed. How is the rock climbing, out of curiosity?
SCI Lt Jude 24-Jun-2020 21:48:09
TAC: Perhaps a grain of sand lodged itself in my throat.
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 21:48:48
ACTION> The music picks up as the dance floor begins to populate.
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:49:17
:: smiles at her crewmates moving out onto the dance floor in their fancy duds ::
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 21:49:26
:: tilts her head slightly, intrigued. Figuring she has not context, she gives the full story :: Suzuki: My family is from a relatively small equatorial volcanic island, there's... :: she tries to think ho to describe it, waving a hand :: Sheer cliff faces of volcanic glass, among many other treasures you might enjoy if rocks are your thing.
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 21:49:54
:: squeezes Lexy to her and whispers :: CSO: Would you care to dance, Rosie-love?
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 21:50:19
:: grins at Jester, pretty sure that she'd enjoy that ::
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:50:40
Suzuki> :: eyes widen :: MED: That sounds incredible. I would be thrilled to climb there sometime, if I would not be intruding. :: bows her head politely ::
:: grins :: CO: I would love to, darling! :: follows Kate to the dance floor ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 24-Jun-2020 21:51:48
:: stays off the dance floor, instead enjoying his zin. Because being a closet wine aficionado who went wine tasting just about every weekend for a year after getting through Basic, being in Italy is always an opportunity. ::
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 21:52:07
:: she leads her wife onto the dance floor and pulls her close as the song begins to slow ::
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 21:52:13
:: smiles warmly :: Suzuki: Ah, so you do like rocks--I'm going to see the memory stones, maybe you should-- :: she realizes what she's about to say, and is suddenly stunned with embarrassment, unable to finish her sentence or even save it ::
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:52:43
Suzuki> :: looks from Emily to Zorro, confused ::
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 21:52:44
:: after a moment she clears her throat, waving a hand :: Suzuki: I'm sorry I just.. invited you to my grandpa's grave without thinking about it?
XO Cdr Kuari 24-Jun-2020 21:52:58
:: eagerly moves to the dance floor, starting off with some simple footwork that doesn't move her head too much ::
TAC LCdr T’Lira 24-Jun-2020 21:53:00
:: the eyebrow goes up, but she returns to her drink ::
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 21:53:06
:: returned Jester's glance with a confused look, but now understands ::
AmberSun 24-Jun-2020 21:54:17
::Wonders into the party, looking around curiously at all the noise and activity.::
SCI Lt Jude 24-Jun-2020 21:55:03
:: awkwardly leaves T’Lira to scoot over to Amber Sun and then pet him ::
AmberSun 24-Jun-2020 21:55:22
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:55:49
Suzuki> :: blinks at Emily, then bows deeply :: MED: I do not know your customs, but I am truly honored by your invitation to pay respects to your ancestors, even if it was inadvertent.
SCI Lt Jude 24-Jun-2020 21:55:55
:: growls back a greeting, running her fingers in his fur ::
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 21:56:37
:: finds himself really pleased with how this is going ::
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 21:56:43
:: curls and uncurls her fingers, thinking for a moment. Realizing she hasn't offended, she tries in her own way to explain :: Suzuki: You would--pay your respects to your own ancestors, memory stones only show you your own memories.
AmberSun 24-Jun-2020 21:57:15
::Pats his foot on the floor.: SCI: What doing? ::Looks around at the others.::
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 21:58:19
Suzuki> :: cocks her head to the side, not quite understanding :: MED: Oh? I must say, I am unfamiliar with these... Memory stones.
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 21:59:38
:: loses herself a bit on the dance floor with Lexy, eyes closed as she's pressed against her, the floral scent of her hair right here ::
SCI Lt Jude 24-Jun-2020 22:00:56
Amber Sun: Party. It is a large gathering where people socialize and do activities like dancing. :: continues to pet ::
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 22:01:10
:: cuddles up with Kate, resting her head on Kate's shoulder, following Kate's lead as they move somewhat aimlessly across the dance floor ::
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 22:01:27
ACTION> The song changes and the tempo picks up a bit!
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 22:01:38
:: nods immediately :: Suzuki: Oh, yes, they're native, that's just what we call them. Different types of.. it's like a volcanic glass, in colors. I'm not sure it works for people who aren't empathic, but it should.. :: she thinks, rubbing her chin :: To be honest, I don't know how special they actually are, but it's a tradition. You know how those are.
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 22:03:35
Suzuki> :: nods, understanding tradition :: MED: Still, I would be honored to see the traditions of your people if you are willing to share them. :: pauses, thinking, then looking at both Emily and Zorro in turn :: MED/NAV: If you are interested, I could take you to Japan.
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 22:04:02
Suzuki: I'd enjoy that, I think! :: glances to Emily ::
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 22:04:18
ACTION> A holographic play shimmers into existence on the beach!
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 22:04:34
:: has eased into the idea, now seeming somewhat excited :: Suzuki/NAV: Honestly, I'd love to--I don't know of may people outside the tribes who have seen them, or even cared. :: she chuckles ::
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 22:05:07
Suzuki> :: favors Emily with a small but genuine smile ::
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 22:05:28
:: finishes the glass of wine and smiles :: Jester/Emily: Would eeither of you care to dance? Or even both of you, as I do know a few dances for three.
XO Cdr Kuari 24-Jun-2020 22:06:06
:: now having warmed up, adds some dips and wing work to her moves with the faster tempo ::
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 22:06:19
:: raises an eyebrow, glancing between Doc and Kimiko :: NAV: Dances for three? :: she chuckles, disbelieving :: NAV: I'd try it.
AmberSun 24-Jun-2020 22:06:54
::Makes a grumbling equivalent to a pur.:: SCI: But why for?
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 22:07:22
Suzuki> :: looks at Zorro dubiously ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 24-Jun-2020 22:07:25
:: finishes the zin and begins with the Dolcetto. It turns out 2388 was a fantastic year for this varietal, and it only started opening up in the last few months. ::
SCI Lt Jude 24-Jun-2020 22:07:34
Amber Sun: Did anyone tell you what happened to us? On that Gencodian planet?
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 22:07:50
:: takes Emily's hand and offers his other to Jester ::
SCI Lt Jude 24-Jun-2020 22:08:08
:: waves hands :: Amber Sun: Nevermind. Long story short, stuff happened.
AmberSun 24-Jun-2020 22:08:10
SCI: Whats a gencodiak?
SCI: IS IT ANOTHER SPECIES OF BEAR! ::Stands up excitedly.::
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 22:09:21
ACTION> The play begins, a drama of local origin, but not a terribly deep one, meant for audiences who aren't paying full attention.
SCI Lt Jude 24-Jun-2020 22:09:44
Amber Sun: Gencodian. It is another species. Not bear. But. Stuff happened. A lot of stuff. So... We have been granted shore leave.
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 22:09:44
Suzuki> :: sighs and takes his hand, internally worried that she's going to look silly but still wanting to play along ::
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 22:10:11
:: finishes her drink and sets it aside as they make their way to the dancefloor ::
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 22:11:07
:: leads Emily and Jester to the dance floor and explains the basics, a dance where he's alternatively pulling them in and twirling them ::
CO Capt Harper 24-Jun-2020 22:11:25
:: as the music picks up, she pulls far enough away from Lexy to take her hands and groove a little ::
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 22:12:19
:: catches on fairly easily, having danced with Zorro many times at this point. When she bumps into Kimiko she laughs, hoping to put her at ease, pulling her arm to put her back into the right spin. ::
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 22:13:03
:: smiles charmingly at them as he leads the dance, and good-naturedly chuckles as they work together to figure this all out ::
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 22:13:42
Suzuki> :: nods very seriously and goes all in, even though she's not much of a dancer -- is grateful when Emily helps her along, and makes a mental note to try to express that gratitude later, forgetting that Emily can probably sense it ::
AmberSun 24-Jun-2020 22:13:55
::Just nods along.:: SCI: Was this before I came to Atalan'tees?
XO Cdr Kuari 24-Jun-2020 22:14:26
ACTION> The holographic play depicts a scene of a castle that once stood nearby, two characters in medieval garb locked in a swordfight duel ::
SCI Lt Jude 24-Jun-2020 22:16:54
Amber Sun: No. It was a little less than a week ago.
NAV Lt Navarro 24-Jun-2020 22:17:01
:: grinning at the ladies as they dance :: Now you've got it!
MED Lt Acacia 24-Jun-2020 22:17:21
:: gets into the dance, genuinely enjoying herself ::
AmberSun 24-Jun-2020 22:17:28
SCI: I no remember you being gone? ::Tilts his head curiously.::
CSO Cdr Wright 24-Jun-2020 22:17:55
:: does a little twirl, then tries to twirl Kate, laughing at how the taller woman has to duck under her arm ::

Make sure that you get the shore leave you need, and do not forget your shipmates while you do. I am certain there is someone that time with someone else while on vacation would do some good for.
