Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
A full day and a half has passed since the attempted assassination of Captain Harper. Although she is recovering well in her quarters and the ship is under Commander Kuari's capable command, Harper's absence is conspicuous, both on the bridge and across the fleet; the Xovul's ability to make even an attempt on the life of the field commander has cast a nervous pall over daily operations that must continue. This afternoon, repairs proceed as does the waiting game; Captain Finley of the Columbia has kept the fleet as-is after considering the intelligence reports that have been provided to him.

CO Capt Harper 28-Jul-2021 21:32:49
:: pets Anna some more, who has been enjoying having company during day shift ::

Hannah Ziredac 28-Jul-2021 21:35:10

CSO Cdr Wright 28-Jul-2021 21:35:16
:: enters the turbolift, worrying that Kate might have hurt herself :: TL: Deck Eight.
TAC 2Lt Ammora 28-Jul-2021 21:35:58
Hannah: :: smirks :: You get what you give.
MED LCdr Acacia 28-Jul-2021 21:36:11
:: leans over a terrarium full of scrambling isopods in various colors. She pulls out a purple one and sets it in a smaller container, putting the container on her desk. ::
Hannah Ziredac 28-Jul-2021 21:37:22
:: laughs :: TAC2: If I recall correctly, I smiled and waved at y’all, then that lady yelled at me. Though, fuck, maybe yelling at people is that lady’s version of smiling and waving.
TAC2: You, though, you don’t strike me the same way.
MED LCdr Acacia 28-Jul-2021 21:38:02
:: pulls up a scanner attachment arm from her desk, maneuvering it over and getting a good angle on the bug, smiling at the magnified image and reading the scan results ::
CO Capt Harper 28-Jul-2021 21:38:04
:: sighs as Anna wanders away to attend to some important kitty business ::
TAC 2Lt Ammora 28-Jul-2021 21:38:11
Hannah: You threw me off your ship when I was trying to help fix it. But, I guess you forgot me like I forgot you.
Hannah: :: shrug :: Kindness only goes so far when it isn't genuine.
:: turns and heads down the corridor ::
CSO Cdr Wright 28-Jul-2021 21:39:48
:: comes down the corridor and pauses briefly in front of the door to their quarters as it swishes open for her, then swishes closed after she steps inside :: CO: Kate?
MED LCdr Acacia 28-Jul-2021 21:40:26
:: flicks through a file on the computer terminal built into her desk, checking off the bug’s purple color in her genetic chart. She grabs another bug, scanning it in turn ::
CO Capt Harper 28-Jul-2021 21:41:46
:: she perks up when she hears Lexy return home :: CSO: Still in bed!
Hannah Ziredac 28-Jul-2021 21:42:42
:: follows Scott :: TAC2: Oh come on, how do you know I wasn’t being genuine? And back on my ship, what did you expect, hiding something behind your back and failing to be coy about it? TAC2: :: smirks :: Plus, there’s that whole thing of me just wanting to be alone with the hot engineer who was also working on my ship at the time.
TAC 2Lt Ammora 28-Jul-2021 21:43:39
Hannah: So then it wasn't genuine if you had ulterior motives. Checkmate. So kindness works with you only when you want something? :: keeps walking ::
CSO Cdr Wright 28-Jul-2021 21:43:39
:: crosses the living room and into the open doorway to the bedroom, relieved to find Kate still in bed and looking okay :: CO: What's wrong? Are you okay?
NAV Lt Navarro 28-Jul-2021 21:43:56
:: runs a few more simulations through the coordination network of potential slipstream destinations ::

MED LCdr Acacia 28-Jul-2021 21:45:11
:: continues scanning isopod after isopod, checking off their colors, mostly shades of blue and purple. She smiles faintly, enjoying this thoroughly ::

:: looks up at her wife in the doorway, her appearance rather disheveled :: CSO: Hey Rosie. I am fine, I just—I want to... no, I have to get back to work. I cannot sit here any longer.

Hannah Ziredac 28-Jul-2021 21:46:09
TAC2: I was talking about being genuinely friendly on the bridge, but okay, yeah, I see what you’re saying. I was genuinely annoyed you were being coy with part of my ship, despite whatever ulterior motives I had.

CSO Cdr Wright 28-Jul-2021 21:46:58

:: folds his arms :: Hannah: Do you trust Zoe?
CO Capt Harper 28-Jul-2021 21:49:23
:: looks down, then around the room, then back up at Lexy, her eyes pleading :: CSO: I know, but it is just bruising. It hurts, yes. I am more sore than after the most intense workout of my life, but I can bear it. They need to see that I am alright, Rosie, and I need to be there for them to see.
Hannah Ziredac 28-Jul-2021 21:50:09
TAC2: World’s most innocent engineering nerd? I’ve no reason not to. Why?
TAC 2Lt Ammora 28-Jul-2021 21:50:45
Hannah: Do you trust Starfleet?
MED LCdr Acacia 28-Jul-2021 21:50:52

CSO Cdr Wright 28-Jul-2021 21:50:55

CO Capt Harper 28-Jul-2021 21:51:53

:: folds her arms across her chest :: CO: Are you ordering me to do this as your subordinate, or do I get a say in this?

MED LCdr Acacia 28-Jul-2021 21:53:55
:: flips through the data, plotting the colors of her bugs on an interesting chart ::
TAC 2Lt Ammora 28-Jul-2021 21:54:46
Hannah: Why are you here?
CO Capt Harper 28-Jul-2021 21:55:02
:: chuckles a bit, wincing :: CSO: I do not think I have the authority to give such an order, captain or no. A wife can supercede a captain in many cases. Please, tell me what you think.
Hannah Ziredac 28-Jul-2021 21:55:48
:: ah-ha face, smirk :: TAC2: Oh, okay, that’s what it is. Starfleet’s y’all’s little club, and I don’t belong. Is that it?
CSO Cdr Wright 28-Jul-2021 21:56:12
:: presses her lips together :: CO: I think you're being foolish, but I also think it's going to be impossible to talk you out of it.
NAV Lt Navarro 28-Jul-2021 21:56:21
:: gets the deck chief's report that his bird is ready to fly, which he reviews before signing off on pending personal inspection, and sends that off to the CAG ::
TAC 2Lt Ammora 28-Jul-2021 21:56:40
Hannah: Oooh, defensive. I asked you a simple question.
MED LCdr Acacia 28-Jul-2021 21:58:30
:: finishes up and tosses the food flakes in the terrarium, lovingly watching the bugs scurry for a minute ::
CO Capt Harper 28-Jul-2021 21:58:37
CSO: It may be foolish, yes. :: lowers her head :: But I know I can manage the pain, and I believe it is important for morale that the crew sees me back sooner, rather than later. :: gestures to the PADD, still on the bed :: And I really do have work to do, acting on this report and the latest intel.
Hannah Ziredac 28-Jul-2021 21:58:39
TAC2: You know why I’m here, dude! Ship was damaged, Atlantis agreed to help me fix her, I fell in love with the chick who did the fixin, now I’m here on kind of a, uh… independent contractor sorta basis. :: afterthought :: I thought y’all security folks all get rundowns on civvies on your ship, or whatever.
TAC 2Lt Ammora 28-Jul-2021 22:00:38
Hannah: :: nods:: That's the story. Atlantis agreed to help you fix her... and when I tried to help... you kicked me off. Your bridge antics and your kindness seem hollow to me. There's something else going on with you. And I think it's deeper than 'falling in love'. Security folk? Yeah, we know when someone is being fake.
CSO Cdr Wright 28-Jul-2021 22:01:58
:: sighs again :: CO: Okay. I have some ground rules. But okay.
Hannah Ziredac 28-Jul-2021 22:02:26
TAC2: Okay, Scotty. So what’s really going on with me? Why would I want to be anywhere near Starfleet when I could be literally anywhere else? Let’s hear it, Columbo.
CO Capt Harper 28-Jul-2021 22:02:37
:: looks back up, her eyes full of hope :: CSO: Name them!
TAC 2Lt Ammora 28-Jul-2021 22:03:08
:: laughs :: Hannah: That's the rub, huh? That is the ultimate question. Why would you want to be here when you could be anywhere else? Yet, here you are.
Hannah Ziredac 28-Jul-2021 22:03:52
TAC2: Alright, let me counter that with a reversal on your own question. Do you trust Captain Harper?
CSO Cdr Wright 28-Jul-2021 22:04:04
CO: You will not push yourself. If you're in much pain, we pull the plug. You will only go out there for a couple hours, and then you will come back here and rest like you are supposed to.
TAC 2Lt Ammora 28-Jul-2021 22:04:18
:: blinks, that being an unexpected turn :: Hannah: She's the Captain, of course.
CO Capt Harper 28-Jul-2021 22:04:32
:: nods eagerly :: CSO: The day is half gone anyway.
CSO Cdr Wright 28-Jul-2021 22:04:52
CO: When was the last time you took your pain meds?
MED LCdr Acacia 28-Jul-2021 22:05:06
:: carefully closes the terrarium lid, then checks up on the data from another one of her experiments, looking for patterns ::
CO Capt Harper 28-Jul-2021 22:05:14
CSO: A few hours. It has not been bad, just sitting in bed reading.
Hannah Ziredac 28-Jul-2021 22:05:41
:: smirks, gives a come the fuck on face :: TAC2: Scotty. That’s like answering the question, ‘What do you think of the band Still Smoke?’ with, ‘Well, they’re certainly a band.’
CSO Cdr Wright 28-Jul-2021 22:06:12
CO: Yes, well, getting you cleaned up and dressed is probably going to hurt. It's time for another dose anyway. We'll do that first.
:: obviously disapproves of this plan ::
TAC 2Lt Ammora 28-Jul-2021 22:06:56
Hannah: Captain Harper has always shown her fortitude. And when I... :: pauses, remembering the moment in the ready room :: ...and when I... yes, I trust her completely.
CO Capt Harper 28-Jul-2021 22:07:25
CSO: Alright, yes. I just want out of here. And love... thank you for doing this. I know you just want me to rest until I am fully recovered.
CSO Cdr Wright 28-Jul-2021 22:08:29
CO: I can't help but try to be the voice of reason, Kitty, but I know you well enough to know that once you've set your mind on something you'll not waver.
Hannah Ziredac 28-Jul-2021 22:09:54
TAC2: Okay, I’ll ignore your obscenely obvious tells that you don’t believe what you’re saying, and ask you this: Do you think Captain Harper is so shortsighted as to just let anyfuckingbody onto her ship? Do you think Captain Harper is, alternatively, so weak-willed that she could be pressured into doing something she doesn’t want to do? Alternatively, do you think Captain Harper would knowingly and willingly expose her ship and crew to someone who she thought posed some degree or manner of threat?
CO Capt Harper 28-Jul-2021 22:10:12
CSO: Still, I have put you through a lot, I know. :: swings her legs over the side of the bed again and catches her eyes :: When this stupid war is finally over, we will have the best shore leave together.
MED LCdr Acacia 28-Jul-2021 22:10:44
:: jots down a few notes and sends in a request for additional samples from a few of the study participants ::
CSO Cdr Wright 28-Jul-2021 22:12:16
CO: Uh-huh. Come on, let's get you up. :: moves over to the side of the bed to help Kate stand ::
CO Capt Harper 28-Jul-2021 22:12:38
:: gingerly stands with Lexy's help ::
TAC 2Lt Ammora 28-Jul-2021 22:13:54
:: leans against the bulkhead :: Hannah: In the tactical world, we call this misdirection. You think by getting me to think my CO approves of you, to allude to you being all sunshine and rainbows, that I'll not continue to think you don't have something to hide with the idea of that notion being I don't trust her? I trust Captain Harper. I don't trust you.
CSO Cdr Wright 28-Jul-2021 22:14:10
:: slowly walks Kate out to the kitchen area and lets her lean against the counter while she goes to prepare the pain medication hypospray :: CO: Have you eaten anything?
CO Capt Harper 28-Jul-2021 22:15:28
CSO: Yes, I had lunch before I called you. :: sheepishly :: I, uh, left the plate by the bed. Sorry, I know you hate that.
Hannah Ziredac 28-Jul-2021 22:15:38
TAC2: I don’t expect you to trust me, Scotty. You don’t even know me. So. Why don’t you trust Harper?
CSO Cdr Wright 28-Jul-2021 22:16:13
CO: I suppose I can give you a pass this once. :: presses the hypospray to Kate's neck ::
TAC 2Lt Ammora 28-Jul-2021 22:16:13
Hannah: You don't know me. So why should I trust you? Seems to me that with your hyperbole, that's what you should really be asking.
CO Capt Harper 28-Jul-2021 22:17:47
:: inclines her neck to take the hypospray :: CSO: Thanks, Rosie.
Hannah Ziredac 28-Jul-2021 22:18:03
:: reaches over and knocks gingerly on top of Ammora’s noggin :: Anybody home, McFly? I just said I don’t expect you to trust me. Now answer me: Why don’t you trust Harper? What, did she promote someone ahead of you? Did she make a bad judgment call that went against your ethics? Did she break y’all’s Primary Direction thingy?
TAC 2Lt Ammora 28-Jul-2021 22:18:39
:: slaps Hannah's hand away from his head ::
MED LCdr Acacia 28-Jul-2021 22:21:46
:: works on revising her contribution to another study, quietly reading the writing out loud to make sure it flows correctly ::
TAC 2Lt Ammora 28-Jul-2021 22:22:19
Hannah: I think that's the problem. I'm not infatuated by your charm, your quote-unquote kindness, your shoot-from-the-hip-thanks-for-the-help mentality. From the moment you threw me off your ship, when I was being as genuine as anyone could possibly be as a member from Starfleet, from what you JUST said Atlantis was doing - fix your ship - I realized something was off. You can hide behind this infatuation with Zoe, but you'd never use that as an argument with Harper!
