CAG LCdr T’Lira 13-Oct-2021 21:18:44
:: manning Ops at the moment, something that is a reminder of past missions, while looking over the QSD solutions being demonstrated. While she is familiar with the QSD from a theoretical and scientific perspective, seeing it in practice is another matter entirely ::
XO Cdr Kuari 13-Oct-2021 21:19:08
:: is on the bridge, checking over the latest department reports, focusing mostly on the post-battle repairs that were completed overnight, nodding approvingly. She takes a deep breath, satisfied with what has been accomplished, ready to move on to their next mission ::

:: checks the morning report and her duty roster, smiling to herself as she realizes she has bridge duty ::
NAV Lt Navarro 13-Oct-2021 21:19:21
CAG: I try to anticipate where la capitana wants to go, and have solutions pre-calculated.
CAG LCdr T’Lira 13-Oct-2021 21:19:52
NAV: I do not imagine that to be a simple nor straightforward task.
CTO Cpt Grey 13-Oct-2021 21:20:01
:: is in a meeting with Everly and other Marine officers, handling new training programs and how to get the word out to the other Marine and Security without taking them off their own duties ::

NAV Lt Navarro 13-Oct-2021 21:23:54
CO: I can get behind that, ma'am.
CMO LCdr Acacia 13-Oct-2021 21:24:17

CO Capt Harper 13-Oct-2021 21:24:50
NAV: Well, then, set me up a slipstream solution for Earth!
CAG: Contact Refuge control and get departure clearance, Commander.
NAV Lt Navarro 13-Oct-2021 21:25:26
:: pulls up the slipstream data for Earth :: CO: Already done, capitana.
CAG LCdr T’Lira 13-Oct-2021 21:25:41

CEO LtJG D’bryn 13-Oct-2021 21:27:38

CEO LtJG D’bryn 13-Oct-2021 21:28:20

CAG LCdr T’Lira 13-Oct-2021 21:28:42
:: notes the hail :: CO: Captain, Refuge Control is hailing.
CO Capt Harper 13-Oct-2021 21:29:09

ACTION> Lady Venya Kashar appears on the viewer, not dressed in her usual leathers, but in a sleek indigo dress that brings out her violet eyes, cut to emphasize her voluptuous form while showing lots of light green skin.
CMO LCdr Acacia 13-Oct-2021 21:29:56
:: shares a smile with Navarro as well, feeling quite good ::
Venya Kashar 13-Oct-2021 21:30:11
+CO+ Why, Katy-Kat, were you going to just leave without saying goodbye to me?
:: smiles, indicating that she's not actually offended ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 13-Oct-2021 21:30:57

CO Capt Harper 13-Oct-2021 21:31:39
:: dips her head in deference to their allied leader, who they have certainly become quite a lot more acquainted with lately :: +Venya+ Of course not, Lady Venya. Please, accept my apologies, and my thanks for your hospitality.
Venya Kashar 13-Oct-2021 21:32:48
+CO+ Oh, think nothing of it! We are the ones who should be thanking you, after all, as my beloved port would not longer exist without your help. :: she drops her usual saccharine air and looks directly at Harper :: Thank you, Captain. Truly.
CMO LCdr Acacia 13-Oct-2021 21:33:20
:: blinks, a small shiver running up her spine when Venya breaks character ::
Venya Kashar 13-Oct-2021 21:33:31
+CO+ And not just to you, but to your entire crew, and to the crews of the other Starfleet vessels here, and to those who were lost. Thank you. We owe everything to you.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 13-Oct-2021 21:33:43
:: signs off on replacing some plasma conduits, goes back to daydreaming, wondering which iterations she can turn into reality ::
CO Capt Harper 13-Oct-2021 21:33:52
:: opens her mouth to speak, but her voice catches, when Venya is so suddenly... real ::
CEO LtJG D’bryn 13-Oct-2021 21:34:23
:: thinks about the iterations where they got a cat, then the ones where they got a dog, then the ones where they got one of each ::
CO Capt Harper 13-Oct-2021 21:35:51
:: she finally answers :: +Venya+ It was our honor, Lady Venya, and we are all better for your port and its wonderful people still being here.
CMO LCdr Acacia 13-Oct-2021 21:36:10
:: bows her head in agreement to the Captain’s statement ::
XO Cdr Kuari 13-Oct-2021 21:36:10

:: gets lightheaded :: Oh great. My favorite.
Venya Kashar 13-Oct-2021 21:38:49
:: a grin spreads across her face as she returns to her usual manner :: +CO+ Do come visit again soon, Katy-Kat? :: she eyes T'Lira and Navarro at the front consoles and nods approvingly before adding :: And tell your lovely wife that I'm so sorry to have missed her!
CEO LtJG D’bryn 13-Oct-2021 21:38:59
:: is in the backyard of the house on the overlook again ::
Hannah Ziredac 13-Oct-2021 21:39:25
:: is sitting on the grass of the backyard, the whiskey gone from her hand :: Hey.
CMO LCdr Acacia 13-Oct-2021 21:39:27
:: smirks, amused by Venya’s ways by now ::
CO Capt Harper 13-Oct-2021 21:39:49
+Venya+ We will return when we duty permits it, and I will certainly give your regards to Commander Wright.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 13-Oct-2021 21:39:58
Hannah: Oh! Hey love! :: sees her half-dressed, obviously drunken state :: What're...what's up?
XO Cdr Kuari 13-Oct-2021 21:41:07
:: notes that someone else is manning the Science console, aware of the reason, and thinks it's good fortune for Alexis to not be there, knowing full well her usual discomfort in front of Venya ::
Venya Kashar 13-Oct-2021 21:41:17
:: she grins and waves with wiggling fingers :: +CO+ Safe travels to the great ship Atlantis, Katie! :: the comm goes dark after a couple of long seconds during which Venya's eyes linger ::
Hannah Ziredac 13-Oct-2021 21:41:18
Zoë: Oh hey. :: wobbles side-to-side, trying to figure out how to stand up :: Jus gettin transpor'd agains muh will. Mus be Wednesday.

Self: So post-combat details are complete...
CMO LCdr Acacia 13-Oct-2021 21:42:10
:: finally signs into her console, side-eyeing Kate as the transmission ends ::
TAC 1Lt Ammora 13-Oct-2021 21:42:11
:: no one cares or responds ::
CO Capt Harper 13-Oct-2021 21:42:24
:: smirks as she sits down :: CAG: I assume that means we have departure clearance. NAV: Take us out of the asteroid field, and then to warp speed upon clearing it.
CAG LCdr T’Lira 13-Oct-2021 21:42:35
CO: I believe so, yes, sir.
NAV Lt Navarro 13-Oct-2021 21:42:59
NAV: Sí, capitana. :: brings the impulse engines to life and makes for the navigable paths through the asteroids ::
Destiny Salladay 13-Oct-2021 21:43:53
:: emerges from the backyard :: I can't understate how convenient it is that you two are in the same place. :: sees Hannah's state :: Did I catch you indisposed?
XO Cdr Kuari 13-Oct-2021 21:44:00
:: takes another deep breath in her seat as the begin moving on ::
Hannah Ziredac 13-Oct-2021 21:44:58
Destiny: What if you, like... pull us inta yer wha'ever-this-is, but we're, the shower? You jus gonna deal with a naked person standin here talking about light-balls an shit?
CO Capt Harper 13-Oct-2021 21:45:46
ACTION> As a few other ships leave Refuge for various destinations, Atlantis joins them, the great allied fleet going its separate ways.
Destiny Salladay 13-Oct-2021 21:45:59
:: furrows her brow dismissively :: Z/H: The rendezvous with the other Light-keepers. It's off.
NAV Lt Navarro 13-Oct-2021 21:46:10
:: once the ship is clear of the asteroids, he engages the warp engines in the general direction of Earth required for the slipstream drive ::
CO: Warp one and standing by for slipstream, capitana.
CO Capt Harper 13-Oct-2021 21:46:44
XO: Make the ship ready for slipstream flight, Commander.
Hannah Ziredac 13-Oct-2021 21:46:47
:: snorts :: Destiny: 'Light-keepers'? What sorda Terry Goodkind-ass name izzat?
CEO LtJG D’bryn 13-Oct-2021 21:46:57
Destiny: Wait, why?
TAC 1Lt Ammora 13-Oct-2021 21:48:12
What to do, what to do?
:: checks to make sure all his duties are done ::
Yep, all aligned, completed, and nominal...
Destiny Salladay 13-Oct-2021 21:49:33
There's... Someone found out. A very dangerous someone. They've captured at least one of the other Light-keepers. Killed them, far's I can tell. They're able to track the others somehow. I'm doing what I can to counteract them, but for now, it's a dangerous idea for any Light-keeper to be exposed. I urge you both not to leave Atlantis. It's not impenetrable, but it's one of the best options you have.
CEO LtJG D’bryn 13-Oct-2021 21:50:16
Destiny: We'll let the Captain know. What can I tell her about this someone? Who is it?
CTO Cpt Grey 13-Oct-2021 21:50:51
Marine> :: appears in the doorway of the armory, giving Ammora a smile :: TAC: Captain Grey sent me to retrieve you for the release of new training protocols, by the Academy. Everyone's meeting in the main training room in five minutes.
TAC 1Lt Ammora 13-Oct-2021 21:51:29
Marine: Can't wait.
Destiny Salladay 13-Oct-2021 21:51:53
Z/H: I don't know his name. No one does. There are those in the deepest intelligence agencies who have referred to him as 'The Emissary'. But that information has long since scattered to the winds, and what little I've been able to find so far is encrypted to hell and back.
CMO LCdr Acacia 13-Oct-2021 21:52:12
:: uses her console to review reports from sickbay, interested in how the different perspectives meshed together ::
CTO Cpt Grey 13-Oct-2021 21:52:19
Marine> :: cackles at Ammora's deadpan response, bending over with laughter :: TAC: She doesn't look that enusthed either.
CAG LCdr T’Lira 13-Oct-2021 21:52:26
:: notes a blip on the sensors and checks the scans :: CO: Captain, sensors are detecting a spatial anomaly in a star system near our current course.
CO Capt Harper 13-Oct-2021 21:52:47
CAG: What sort of anomaly?
TAC 1Lt Ammora 13-Oct-2021 21:52:56
Marine: :: smirks :: I'm sure it'll be a riveting experience for all.
Hannah Ziredac 13-Oct-2021 21:52:58
Destiny: I'm... look, I'm thrilled about this exposition but this meeting could've been a subspace message.
TAC 1Lt Ammora 13-Oct-2021 21:53:54
:: does a final check and heads to the main training room ::
XO Cdr Kuari 13-Oct-2021 21:53:55
:: takes pity on the newbie at Tactical and hops off her seat, trotting over to the station and showing the ensign how it is done, configuring the shields ::
CAG LCdr T’Lira 13-Oct-2021 21:54:57
:: looks closer at the sensors :: CO: At this time, unknown. Sensors cannot properly identify the anomaly with current information and parameters.
TAC 1Lt Ammora 13-Oct-2021 21:55:30
:: hopes he gets to punch someone ::
Destiny Salladay 13-Oct-2021 21:55:35
Z/H: From what I've seen of The Emissary, security measures will only slow him down. But that's if you don't see him coming. The best measures on the scant few documents are not unlike fortifying against the Borg. This man—if that's what you can call him—possesses technology beyond anything I've seen.
XO Cdr Kuari 13-Oct-2021 21:55:45
:: nods to Harper :: CO: Atlantis is ready for slipstream, Captain.
CO Capt Harper 13-Oct-2021 21:55:46
XO: We are in no hurry. Shall we check it out?
CEO LtJG D’bryn 13-Oct-2021 21:56:38
Destiny: What if we just... :: shrugs :: just get rid of the Lights? Fling em into space, fire em into a star.
TAC 1Lt Ammora 13-Oct-2021 21:57:04
:: moves down the hallway into the main training room, finds a seat and sits ::
CMO LCdr Acacia 13-Oct-2021 21:57:49
:: lingers on a nurse’s report, frowning at her perspective of the care one patient was given ::
CO Capt Harper 13-Oct-2021 21:57:53
NAV: Alter course and increase speed to warp four. XO: Stand down slipstream preparations.
Destiny Salladay 13-Oct-2021 21:58:02
Zoë: We can't give up on them yet. There's still a lot of potential knowledge we can gain from them. I don't want to waste it just yet. And the method the Emissary is using to find them isn't efficient, whatever it is. If it were, he'd've gotten them already.
NAV Lt Navarro 13-Oct-2021 21:58:22
CO: Aye aye. :: changes course to intercept and throttles up ::
Hannah Ziredac 13-Oct-2021 21:58:39
Destiny: Whass 'e an Emissary of, anyway? Or did someone pick that name without knowin what it means?
CO Capt Harper 13-Oct-2021 21:59:53
:: settles back into her chair and waits for their arrival ::
Destiny Salladay 13-Oct-2021 22:00:20
Hannah: I don't know. But if he is an Emissary of something, I shudder to think of what it could be. Okay. Don't use your Lights, not consciously. Keep them secure. Talk to your captain about security, but only tell her what she needs to know. Good luck.
