  1. Manticore Brief Stardate 52008.10. TBS is 3 hours, 21 minutes and 8 seconds. Manticore is in synchronous orbit around an asteroid that has a waterfall between two mountains. We'll be going down to relax. =/\=BEGIN SIM=/\= =/\=BEGIN SIM=/\= =/\=BEGIN SIM=/\= Erich Jaenke: What kind of facility is this Commander Farrington? Annika Sorenson: ::on the bridge, looking at the view screen from her science console:: Oooh. Callista Tyrel: :: getting ready for another excursion in her quarters :: Gila Orrak: :: Checking in on the CO and XO again :: Cmdr JFarrington: ::turns to Erich:: No one else knows about it as far as I know. Uninhabited. Small animals, nothing dangerous. Amanda Davis PhD: :::grabs her gear, especially her swimsuit:: McFly: ::sitting up in sick bay; wearing clothes with an actual back to them this time; looks at Gilla:: Am I well?... No wait, let me rephrase... Am I si... no longer needing to be in sickbay? Erich Jaenke: Uninhabited? Surely this is not naturally occurring. Kansas Kenickie: ::Tries to clean herself up in the sink and touch up her hair:: Callista Tyrel: Computer , can you tell me any information on our destination, mainly...do I need to replicate snowshoes....or Sun Block? :: not sure if the computer will have anything on file :: Cmdr JFarrington: :::checking with the helmsman::: Yes, naturally occurring. Kansas Kenickie: ::Evil eyes Gila:: Gila Orrak: I can't do anything to you in here without people knowing...err, you should be fine. Unless you are feeling up to an implant. McFly: ::raises eyebrow:: What kind of implant? McFly: ((impant sounds like something you'd get on Risa )) Kansas Kenickie: an implant ::Tisks:: Typical Gila Orrak: Oh, did I say implant? Perhaps another time. Gila Orrak: Trusted Cardassian technology for centuries. McFly: ::furrows brow:: tease Cmdr JFarrington: ::notes the helmsman is not happy staying behind, but he'll get his chance::: Gila Orrak: You may both leave sickbay. Call me if anything changes. Annika Sorenson: ::back in her quarters, changing into some loose comfortable shirt and shorts and sandals, applies on some sunscreen and bug repellent:: Kansas Kenickie: No please tell us of your brain smashing technology. Gila Orrak: It has not smashed for a very long time. We have come a long way in our extraction techniques. Gila Orrak: :: putting away some of her medical devices. Putting new devices into her pack :: Amanda Davis PhD: :::feeling strange, going down to an uninhabited asteroid that even has a waterfall, grass, and flowers:::: McFly: Will do Doc. ::slides off the biobed and heads for the door; grabs KK around the waist and pulls her with him:: Erich Jaenke: Well, perhaps I can use some non-holographic environment Callista Tyrel: :: into her standard uniform she packs everything..which is not much into her utility bag. ..and her trusty tricorder :: Callista Tyrel: Okay...off to wherever... Cmdr JFarrington: ::is not going to tell them how she came upon this asteroid because it's too special::: Callista Tyrel: :: exits quarters to TR :: McFly: ((good thing we can't hear your thoughts with a tease like that)) Gila Orrak: :: Places the last item in her pack :: Cmdr JFarrington: (Heh) Erich Jaenke: :: Enters the lift :: Sickbay. McFly: ::walks down the hall with KK:: I read a couple of padds while I laid there to catch up on what I missed. Commander Farrington is back? How'd that happen? Amanda Davis PhD: :::exiting her quarters and moving toward the lift::: Annika Sorenson: ::grabs her holocam and sunglasses and heads to the TL:: Kansas Kenickie: Right place right time. Callista Tyrel: :: arrives at TR room waiting for with her over the shoulder tote :: Cmdr JFarrington: ::packing a bag of medical gear, just in case someone slips::: McFly: ::walks into TL with KK and inputs the crew deck:: Annika Sorenson: ::she arrives at the TR:: Kansas Kenickie: It did show me that I am an awful XO. Callista Tyrel: Hi Annika. Amanda Davis PhD: :::enters the TR::: Hello, everyone. This is going to be interesting. Kansas Kenickie: I wasn't trained for it. Erich Jaenke: :: Runs into the Doctor :: Oof! Annika Sorenson: Oh hey Callista. Back for take two of our vacation. McFly: For what, running the ship without me? Annika Sorenson: I guess? Gila Orrak: Ahh! Careful Commander. :: clutching her pack :: Kansas Kenickie: pretty much Cmdr JFarrington: :::exits the lift and enters TR::: Erich Jaenke: Are you going to the...surface too? Gila Orrak: Unless I get run over on my way to the transporter, or are we taking a shuttle? Cmdr JFarrington: I have to warn you... the water is cold. Erich Jaenke: Transporter I have been told. Callista Tyrel: Yes. :: a short smile :: Note Big tote....:: points to her large bag :: I don't know a thing about where we are going so..I figured..take everything Kansas Kenickie: ::Wraps her arm around him:: I am sorry I'm not better at all this McFly: I'm sure it was fine. I know there were plenty of times Sovak disappeared on me. It was a little overwhelming but you get the hang of it. Erich Jaenke: We should buddy up, as they say. Annika Sorenson: I hope it's not too heavy for you. Gila Orrak: :: blinks :: Really? McFly: ::hugs her tight:: We're security grunts. Neither of us was really trained for command. Amanda Davis PhD: :::waiting to TR down::: Erich Jaenke: You are the only one that dispenses my medication. Cmdr JFarrington: ::::trying not to toss Erich a grin::: Callista Tyrel: Oh engineers have to haul stuff occasionally. Gila Orrak: Oh, well I don't have any. Besides, you need to control your ability. Kansas Kenickie: ::hugs him back::: I wish I could see myself the way you do... I only see my failures. Gila Orrak: :: She gestures in the direction of TR1 :: Cmdr JFarrington: :::waits:::: McFly: Most people usually do. Just have to learn to deal with them and grow from them. Erich Jaenke: Who knows, perhaps this is some kind of sentient lifeform our sensors can't detect. Erich Jaenke: :: Enter the TR :: Callista Tyrel: Well I have one sweatshirt from school...hope that does it! McFly: ::arrives on deck; takes KK by the hand and walks to their quarters:: Annika Sorenson: Yeah, we science people do too. Hope so too. Gila Orrak: I'd rather not have that happen. Erich Jaenke: :: Steps on the pad :: I have no idea where at this place we are beaming. Kansas Kenickie: I'm not used to failing, I shoot failure in the face and more on. Amanda Davis PhD: ::steps onto the pad:: Annika Sorenson: ::Steps onto the pad as well:: Erich Jaenke: Our group to beam down...seemingly. Cmdr JFarrington: :::steps up, checking her knife and boots::: Callista Tyrel: :: on pad :: Callista Tyrel: :: looks at the commander's boots and...hopes the regulation ones will do..:: Annika Sorenson: ::not even wearing boots:: Cmdr JFarrington: :::TL person::: You have the coordinates. McFly: whelp, sometimes failure likes to shoot back. You just give it the middle finger and try it again. McFly: ::enters quarters and heads to the closet to get out a fresh uniform:: Will be nice to wear real clothes again. Callista Tyrel: ( our captain's attire is truly unreal! ) Kansas Kenickie: ((hey! no looking!)) Kansas Kenickie: Are we going down to that green nightmare below? Cmdr JFarrington: Lt Beamer> Stand by... beaming. :::beams whoever is with them::: Callista Tyrel: :: energizes :: Amanda Davis PhD: :::beams::: Kansas Kenickie: ::opens her messy closet ::: because I could go for a swim in non-simulated water. Cmdr JFarrington: @ :::arrives next to the waterfall::: Amanda Davis PhD: @ :::mouth drops open:: Oh, my. It's beautiful. Kansas Kenickie: I know everyone say there is no difference but I can feel it Erich Jaenke: @ Hmm Cmdr JFarrington: @ :::checking the area:: Just mind where you sit. Some of the plants are prickly. Gila Orrak: @ We are not in Cardassia any more. Amanda Davis PhD: @ Oh, I will look. But this is a beautiful place. Callista Tyrel: @ :: looks around impressed :: Wow...artificial construct or natural? Erich Jaenke: @ We weren't there before. Callista Tyrel: :: thinks cactus like back home :: Annika Sorenson: @ ::looks around::: Wow ::takes some scans with her tricorder:: Cmdr JFarrington: @ Natural. McFly: ((I'm still a security grunt at heart, I always go it commando)) Kansas Kenickie: ((::PPurrrs::)) Amanda Davis PhD: @ :::looks to Jami::: However did you find this place, Commander? Annika Sorenson: @ Yeah, very interesting. All this in an asteroid. I wonder what's swimming in these waters. Cmdr JFarrington: @ ::slight grin::: If I told you I'd have to kill you. McFly: There's a green somthin-somthin down there? Guess I have more padds to read. ::groans:: Amanda Davis PhD: @ Oh. Well, then. I'll just... look around I guess. Callista Tyrel: @ :: notes Annika is probably in her element with the aquatic life :: Cmdr JFarrington: @ Wise choice. Kansas Kenickie: Don’t bother... nothing of import happened Gila Orrak: :: Holds onto Erich's arm, protest or not :: Callista Tyrel: @ Gila are you being silly? Erich Jaenke: @ Uhm.. Kansas Kenickie: ::says in a lying tone to her voice:: Cmdr JFarrington: @ :::checks out the water::: Yes, it's cold. Not frozen. Just cold. Gila Orrak: @ No, I'm taking charge... :: softly :: for once. Gila Orrak: @ We should get closer to the water. Amanda Davis PhD: @ :::sets her things down and wiggles a few toes in the water::: Oh... my. Yes, it's cold. Annika Sorenson: @ ::analyses a small sample:: Very pure. You can probably drink it. McFly: ::puts shirt on; chuckles:: That usually means something did happen. Or you're just trying to save me from all the paperwork. Erich Jaenke: @ That's fine. :: Looking all around, not sensing anything beyond the crew :: Kansas Kenickie: If it did happen then maybe you shouldn't read about it Cmdr JFarrington: @ :::Annika::: Good to know. It's been a while since I've been here. Annika Sorenson: @::dips her foot in the water:: Oooh, I have to agree. Kansas Kenickie: Let it go. ::waves hand about:: Callista Tyrel: @ :: reaches for her tricorder :: Drinkable? McFly: You're probably right, I'll wait for the movie to come out ::kisses her then heads to the door:: I should probably make an appearance on the bridge and say hi to Farrington. It's been a while. Kansas Kenickie: ::is being too blasé about things:: Cmdr JFarrington: @ ::just remembered::: +HELM+ Run silent, just in case someone or something followed us. Annika Sorenson: @ ::Nods:: I would say so, yes. These waters are quite clear and the pollutant levels are very low. Kansas Kenickie: ::Glances back:: everyone is below... Cmdr JFarrington: Lt Lancaster> Running silent, aye. Annika Sorenson: @And it's cold, so it'd probably be pretty refreshing. Kansas Kenickie: Expect Karl and Crystal. Callista Tyrel: @ Nature unspoiled. Not like New Las Vegas... Kansas Kenickie: They are manning the helm while we rest. Annika Sorenson: @Not that I'd recommend drinking strange water from a place you don't know. Amanda Davis PhD: @ :::dangling her feet in the water::: Oh... how nice. It's cold, but you get used to it. :::looks to Annika::: Kansas Kenickie: :::Grabs towels and a fancy robe::: Let’s just go relax and forget crap for a while. Erich Jaenke: @ :: They make their way to the waterfall. The white noise envelops the soundscape :: Annika Sorenson: @ ::Nods:: Its quite the contrast isn't it? I don't know which I prefer more? McFly: I feel a little sheepish going on vacay after a good sleep. Kansas Kenickie: I had the transport Dude find us a nice peaceful spot, away from prying eyes. Gila Orrak: @ :: speaks up :: I have not seen many waterfalls in my life, this one seems... :: tilts her neck up :: very tall. Callista Tyrel: @ :: observes waterfall :: Snowmelt? Annika Sorenson: @::Looks up at the waterfall as well:: If I had to guess, probably. Kansas Kenickie: ::takes his arm:: No prying eyes..... Erich Jaenke: @ It is tall. This is a good spot. The sound of the water blocks the sound of the other minds. McFly: But it's more fun when they pry ::winks:: Kansas Kenickie: ::Covers her face, blushing::: no noo... Gila Orrak: @ Really? Auditory therapy.... interesting. :: makes a not on her write device :: Callista Tyrel: @ Uhm...was I supposed to bring a tent? :: taking it all in :: Annika Sorenson: @ I haven't done tent camping in forever McFly: ::smirks:: That's alright. We'll always know Erich knows what we're doing Annika Sorenson: @or ever? ::thinks, she swishes her foot in the water:: Kansas Kenickie: how am I to relax with that on my mind? Callista Tyrel: @ :: walks along streambed looking :: Annika Sorenson: @::Gets up and follows Callista and the others:: Gila Orrak: @ :: moments upon moment pass :: I can perhaps use the embedded translator to emit white noise... Gila Orrak: @ Commander? Erich Jaenke: @ Hmm? :: looking up :: Cmdr JFarrington: (Is everyone on the asteroid?) McFly: ::pulls her close:: I'll make you forget all about him ::kisses her tenderly on the lips:: Callista Tyrel: @ Commander Farrington are we to beam down some...camping equipment? McFly: ((me and KK are still on the ship)) Gila Orrak: @ I never did thank you, any of you, for allowing me on this ship. If it was you on a Cardassian vessel you'd get the cold shoulder, or worse. Cmdr JFarrington: (Ohhhh..... all righty) Kansas Kenickie: Sounds perfect. Annika Sorenson: @Maybe we can share a tent? ::to Cal:: Erich Jaenke: @ Are we resting here? :: looks confused :: Cmdr JFarrington: @ :::starts wandering up the mountain, looking for something:: Gila Orrak: @ I don't see why not. Cmdr JFarrington: @ ::turns:: You can rest wherever you want to. Just watch out for prickers. Kansas Kenickie: ::hurries into the transporter room:: Annika Sorenson: @::Glad she put her sandals back on:: Cmdr JFarrington: @ :::gets to the top of the fairly low hill and looks around::: Amanda Davis PhD: @ ::spreads out her blanket and basks in the sun::: Callista Tyrel: @ :: sits down on a rock, placing her tote bag on the ground :: Sure. Commander...do we need to transport our own camping equipment? McFly: ::beams down with KK to the asteroid:: Amanda Davis PhD: @ Nothing like *real* sunlight. Erich Jaenke: @ :: Feeling calm :: That legal stuff really worked me over. Callista Tyrel: @ :: looks around as she awaits some 411 :: McFly: @ ::looks around:: Oh wow, it really is nice out here. Kansas Kenickie: @:::takes a deep breath:: I can smell the sunlight. Erich Jaenke: @ :: stumbles :: McFly: @ ::lets KK lead him to her spot:: Gila Orrak: @ Commander, perhaps we should stop here against this rock. Kansas Kenickie: @ to bad we won't be here long enough to get a crisp tan. McFly: @ Not enough UV in the stars. Kansas Kenickie: @ ::nods:: Everyone is below at the waterfall.....we are on top. Erich Jaenke: @ :: Sits :: What is that? Cmdr JFarrington: @ :::stops at the top of the hill, kneels down to pick a flower and slip it into her pocket, its petals visible::: Cmdr JFarrington: @ :::sighs and sits there alone::: McFly: @ ::finds a nice spot near the water; sits down with KK and holds her by a waterfall:: Annika Sorenson: @::looks around as well:: Callista Tyrel: @ Well glad to be with you for another mysterious adventure Annika. Gila Orrak: @ Oh this, a pocket replicator. :: taps. Presses a button and a kit materializes :: Callista Tyrel: @ I guess we will just wait until the brass tells us more about this place. Erich Jaenke: @ Could you have simply brought a blanket or whatever? Annika Sorenson: @Yeah, likewise. If I was going to be on a mysterious adventure I'm glad it's with you. Kansas Kenickie: @ it has been to long since we just soaked up the sun ::Lays back:: Gila Orrak: @ Oh sure, but I just wanted to try this out. I figure when I unreplicated the items I'll run out of a charge. :: sits on the blanket :: Amanda Davis PhD: @ :::almost falling asleep, glad she has sunscreen on::: Callista Tyrel: @ Thanks... :: in her duty uniform at the moment not too concerned about the UVs yet :: Once we get another brief...I’ll swap out my gear. Annika Sorenson: @::sits down in the grass:: Ahh. Sounds good to me. Callista Tyrel: Then again we might not be down here long enough for a change...:: smiles :: Cmdr JFarrington: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Cmdr JFarrington: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\= Cmdr JFarrington: Thank you Cmdr JFarrington: All yours, Boss. Kansas Kenickie: Nice vacation spot Jami, better then the one I picked. McFly: Nice to have a little R&R especially when you wake up from a long nap as I did. McFly: Jami, KK and comments? Cmdr JFarrington: There's a story behind it, Commander. Kansas Kenickie: Soak up the sun while you can. Cmdr JFarrington: Just enjoyed it all, Captain. Cmdr JFarrington: Right. McFly: Questions or comments? Callista Tyrel: ? Amanda Davis PhD: We get too much sun here. McFly: Callista Callista Tyrel: Length of shore leave? Should have asked that in sim..lol McFly: I don't have anything too determined but probably not too long. Going to work on a new plot here. Cmdr JFarrington: How about 50 years Kansas Kenickie: eep Annika Sorenson: lol McFly: Or that, we can just live out our days as renegades on vacation and live on replicator rations. Callista Tyrel: It is pretty enough for that...just need to know if we need to beam down a tent! Cmdr JFarrington: Or grass. Amanda Davis PhD: Oh, dear. What did I get into? McFly: Probably not. Especially if we keep it an hour every week Cmdr JFarrington: One hour it is. Callista Tyrel: one hour copy McFly: Ok so no questions McFly: Alright if there's nothing else, grab a drink and chill by the fire while being... DISMISSED!
  2. Manticore Brief Stardate 52008.03. Commander Kenickie has friends in high places. Manticore has left New Las Vegas and has found an asteroid that looks like home. =/\=BEGIN SIM=/\= =/\=BEGIN SIM=/\= Amanda Davis PhD: :::checking out the captain, and he seems ready to go:: Erich Jaenke: :: Jaenke felt empowered as he had been sitting in the captain's chair for a while :: Erich Jaenke: Helm, slow to quarter impulse and plot a course inside this asteroid field. Erich Jaenke: Find a cosy spot with high metal content to diffuse sensors. Erich Jaenke: :: Helm does so :: Callista Tyrel: :: looks out the viewport in the lounge..still decompressing after what she saw on in the courtroom , the asteroid field almost looks relaxing :: Gila Orrak: :: Doctor Orrak scans McFly :: Hmm Gila Orrak: Interesting.. McFly: ::surprisingly little brain activity:: Erich Jaenke: ACTION: The Manticore slowly enters the asteroid field, weaving gently between the spaces safe for travel Callista Tyrel: :: still in her dress uniform looking outward as the viewport seems to pan... the duty helm officer must be enjoying herself :: Erich Jaenke: :: Checks to make sure the ship is in ship-shape before getting between a rock and a hard rock place :: Gila Orrak: How do you feel Captain? Cmdr JFarrington: :::enters the bridge, still in uniform::: Evening Commander Jaenke. Looks like a nice place to stop. :::she nods to the forward screen::: Amanda Davis PhD: :::finishing the captain's information, diagnosis, etc, Gila taking over to be sure he's ready to go::: Callista Tyrel: :: the vision of a courtroom full of dead people pulses in her head despite her attempts to dismiss it :: McFly: ::stirs on the bed; still groggy:: ....I'm tired, can't I get five more minutes? Erich Jaenke: Yes. There were no indications we were followed, but if we need to lose someone, this is the place. Let the crew decompress a bit, but we just need to be sure we can leave at a moment's notice. Amanda Davis PhD: ::glance in his direction with a smile::: Amanda Davis PhD: ::then back to work::: Gila Orrak: Captain, you said that almost an hour ago. :: The Cardassian doctor pressed something into McFly's head :: Gila Orrak: It is interesting to see a fellow Cardassian's work. Callista Tyrel: :: stands and walks with her beverage to the viewport taking in the view, a much better scene :: McFly: ::feels pressure against his head:: So I have to get up now? How long was I out? Erich Jaenke: This is the longest command I've ever had...and the most uneventful. Cmdr JFarrington: Well, Commander, as far as I know not many people are aware of this asteroid, especially because the rest of the asteroids are pretty.... dreary? Looking like asteroids, anyway. Cmdr JFarrington: ::blink:: Uneventful command? Erich Jaenke: Uninteresting no doubt. There are millions of these formations in the galaxy. Cmdr JFarrington: :::slips into the XO's chair::: Erich Jaenke: I was merely speaking of the voyage from NLV to here. Gila Orrak: What year is this again Captain? Callista Tyrel: Nurse Mallory> :: walks over to Gila Orrak and her Patient checking the Biobed readouts as a nurse does... :: Cmdr JFarrington: ::slow nod::: Gila Orrak: :: smiles while she removes the dermal probe :: McFly: ::blinks:: You're making me do math this early in the morning? ....Ugh.... 23xx? Gila Orrak: It's been nearly two weeks. Gila Orrak: Captain Jaenke is doing fine, thanks for asking. McFly: ((what year did first contact happen? It's that year)) Erich Jaenke: (2063 I believe) Callista Tyrel: Nurse Mallory> :: smiles listening to the Captain's humor :: McFly: Captain Jaenke? ...oh god, they did it, the crew mutinied. I knew it would happen eventually. Surprised KK didn't... oh frak! She's in on it isn't she? Cmdr JFarrington: ::settles in::: I've been in this belt... unofficially, of course... and taken a vacation with some friends on that one asteroid. I think you'll like it. Gila Orrak: You and your wife keep trading barbs with respect to injuries Erich Jaenke: I think a vacation was our problem all along. No telling who has a record at this place. What kind of place is this? McFly: Wife? Oh this is still a dream. No one is marrying Kansas. Gila Orrak: I really should get around to reading the personnel files. Gila Orrak: Jaenke is merely sitting in the chair. Callista Tyrel: :: does a brief Picard Maneuver and walks over to the small bar to get another cup of coffee :: Erich Jaenke: +Eng+ Jaenke to engineering, status? Erich Jaenke: :: Felt like he was talking to himself, but he was up here and not down there. Amanda Davis PhD: ::moves to her desk to file her report::: Gila Orrak: Do you believe you are fit for command Captain? McFly: ::looks over at Gila:: Do I look fit for command? Callista Tyrel: Crewman Wrench> + Bridge + Engineering here. Erich Jaenke: :: Watching the larger rocks go past them :: Callista Tyrel: Nurse Mallory> :: looks to Gila :: He might want a shave. Amanda Davis PhD: (And lose that handsome beard? ) Callista Tyrel: Crewman Wrench> +Bridge + Status is good no problems...everything good. Cmdr JFarrington: We should be reaching that asteroid within the hour. Callista Tyrel: :: takes her cup of joe and sits by the viewport looking outward :: Gila Orrak: You are within the norms medically, but mentally only you can judge... or I can after some pointed questions McFly: Brutus> ::manning tactical; shakes his head and thinks to himself "all those dead people":: Erich Jaenke: Good, good. That was a rough departure, I had seen death as a Betazoid. Callista Tyrel: Nurse Mallory> :: the Bolian nurse puts away some redundant Medical equipment :: McFly: Just don't ask me about the lights. Cmdr JFarrington: :::glance to Erich, having forgotten his telepathic abilities:: Gila Orrak: Oh, you have heard that joke? It's very popular in Cardassian circles McFly: ::looks at Gila:: What joke? Callista Tyrel: :: thinks about the courtroom again...:: Erich Jaenke: Having all of your minds register the gravity of what happened at the same time, the intensity building up like an echo in a deep canyon... Gila Orrak: How many lights do you see? Cmdr JFarrington: ::Erich::: (w) I take it that you are out of your medications. Cmdr JFarrington: ::it's been a while so she had almost forgotten that:: McFly: ::looks at Gila wide eyed with tears welling up:: Erich Jaenke: I have not gone to medical to get it yet, but Doctor Orrak wanted to get a complete baseline of my condition. I think she likes me... but only for my mind. :: laughs :: Cmdr JFarrington: :::how many years?.... at least 15::: McFly: ::squeaks out a response:: four lights? Gila Orrak: Captain? :: scans :: Perhaps that jest does not translate.. Cmdr JFarrington: :::slight grin::: Callista Tyrel: ( K K !!! ) Kansas Kenickie: <<<Hello peeps>> Cmdr JFarrington: (Greetings, Commander!) Gila Orrak: :: Looks behind her for how many lights were in the Captain's view :: Hmm. Maybe 10? McFly: ((KK powered a hurricane to be here tonight. That's dedication)) Cmdr JFarrington: In that case, since I know the area I can direct helm while you go to medical. Kansas Kenickie: ((Sky cleared up)) Erich Jaenke: I could pry into each of your minds and perhaps snuff out the intense memory, turn a raging river into a babbling brook, but at what cost to my sanity? Erich Jaenke: :: Gets up :: Perhaps a good idea, at the very least she can get another reading Callista Tyrel: :: looks at her uniform in the reflection of the viewport, the white contrasting with the darkness of space ..:: Cmdr JFarrington: I'm sure she could. Gila Orrak: Your XO is recovering as well, though her problems are not really physical. Cmdr JFarrington: The commander is in sickbay with the captain. I'm here to direct helm. Go for it. Erich Jaenke: I should go. Keep the ship safe Commander Farrington. Cmdr JFarrington: Aye, aye, sir. ::smirk::: Kansas Kenickie: ::Enters sickbay::: McFly: I've been trying to tell that to you guys for years. Erich Jaenke: :: Nods to the bridge crew as he enters the lift :: Sickbay. Callista Tyrel: Nurse Mallory> :: scoots away :: Gila Orrak: Oh in another place I would have popped her a few times. Erich Jaenke: :: moments later Jaenke enters sickbay :: Cmdr JFarrington: :::takes the command chair::: Helm come around to 207.7 at warp 4. Cmdr JFarrington: Around the next asteroid we should see the one we want. Gila Orrak: Well if this just isn't a party? Come in Erich. Callista Tyrel: Crewman Hammer> :: arrives at the engineering console on the bridge, having seen the CENG depart :: Erich Jaenke: :: Walks over to her and the Captain :: Captain. It has been a while. Kansas Kenickie: ::Enters Matt's room:: it's about time you got up. Gila Orrak: :: Recalibrating her tricorder for Betazoid brain patterns :: McFly: It's only been a couple of hours from my perspective. You going to drop me off at the nearest habitable planet and start pirating in the beta quadrant? Callista Tyrel: :: returns to a bench seat near the viewport and gazes :: Gila Orrak: Brain scans are free today...:: begins to scan Erich :: McFly: ::looks over at KK:: I keep wanting to go back to bed but people keep waking me up. Erich Jaenke: :: Searches for Tyrel with his mind :: Cmdr JFarrington: ::relaxing at the beauty of the stars that shine past the asteroid belt::: Kansas Kenickie: :::Shows people the door::: everyone out Gila Orrak: :: While scanning Erich :: Could simply tilt the bed up 90 degrees. Cmdr JFarrington: Helmsman Cocker, watch that next asteroid. It has a mind of its own. Cmdr JFarrington: Cocker> Aye, ma'am. ::;tappity tap:::: Gila Orrak: Oh we'll leave, but remember this is my sickbay Commander. Callista Tyrel: :: a mind trying to clear itself up at the moment :: Gila Orrak: Let's take ourselves to another room, get you a nice biobed Erich Erich Jaenke: Sure :: Leaves with Orrak :: Kansas Kenickie: I let you mind Sickbay... no one owns anything. Kansas Kenickie: Yet. Gila Orrak: :: At another biobed :: Does she always do that? Erich Jaenke: Does it enough. Callista Tyrel: :: gazes outward thinking....:: Kansas Kenickie: :::Sits McFly back down:: better? Cmdr JFarrington: :::stands to watch the screen::: As soon as you round that asteroid, you'll see an asteroid that has a green hew. McFly: Much. It's ironic how the last memory I have is a Cardassian in my face and I wake up to another one. Erich Jaenke: ~~Tyrel~~ Callista... Callista Tyrel: Crewman Hammer> :: looks at the viewscreen on the bridge very curious at where the ship is going :: Gila Orrak: I should have you probe my mind and get a reading on that.. Kansas Kenickie: ::lifts right eyebrow:: Never a good site Erich Jaenke: I am probing another.. Gila Orrak: Oh really? Who? Erich Jaenke: Callista. Cmdr JFarrington: Lt Cocker> Whoa... never seen an asteroid like that one, ma'am. McFly: I guess I was out for a while? Did I miss anything important? Gila Orrak: Oh do tell, a first-name basis no doubt. Callista Tyrel: :: sees the faces of a dead courtroom. not so much the judge...but the others present :: Kansas Kenickie: ::Hugs him:: you had me slightly worried. McFly: ::pulls her in:: I'm ok. Cmdr JFarrington: And you probably won't see many. Drop out of warp and put us in low synchronous orbit. Erich Jaenke: More familiar, the less formal the easier it is. Kansas Kenickie: Just a small break at New Las Vegas, nothing I couldn't fully handle. Gila Orrak: Ah, perhaps I could be simply Gila. Erich Jaenke: That's just it, there is nothing simple about you doctor, when you dig a little deeper. McFly: Damn, missed out on the blackjack. Cmdr JFarrington: Lt Cocker> She's a beauty, Commander.

Kansas Kenickie: where are the others? Callista Tyrel: Barb> Oh sorry sir...no It was your haircut. It looks military. I actually served an admiral once. BrenFaliver: I'm just kidding you, Barb. So, was it one of the boisterous self-important admirals, or one of the very quiet-almost-silent ones? Callista Tyrel: :: looks to Gila :: Wish we had a connection with the ship, a small medical kit would be nice to have. Cmdr JFarrington: Scare me? I've been in worse situations.

I have no idea what happened, but I get the very distinct feeling I have been asleep a lot longer than I intended. I'll assume exhaustion and not sedatives. Everything ok? I'm not in eye-sight of anyone else of the crew, which always unnerves me when we're off ship...

Callista Tyrel: :: looks at Annika and giggles hearing Bren's comments :: Annika Sorenson: ::giggles as well:: BrenFaliver: +Erich/Callista+ Ah, sorry Erich. You were better looking when you were Callista, no offense. What's going on out there? I fell asleep and ended up alone.

Kansas Kenickie: next time we are going to NEW New Orleans planet. BrenFaliver: +Erich+ Wow, so, they finally followed the trail of organs and blood back to Kansas, huh? I guess it was about time... Cmdr JFarrington: Agreed. Annika Sorenson: ::nods:: BrenFaliver: +Erich+ Ohh, let me guess, she actually didn't kill the person(s) this time? Callista Tyrel: :: gathers her things readying for transport ..but she cannot contact the ship, she assumes the Commander has that under control :: Erich Jaenke: +Bren+ She allowed me to 'enter' her mind. BrenFaliver: +Erich+ .... and..... then you killed the people? BrenFaliver: +Erich+ You all have some very wild ideas of 'vacation' in Starfleet. Annika Sorenson: ::hopes that's the case as well:: Callista Tyrel: Make certain you have everything :: to Gila and Annika :: I doubt we will be coming back.

Callista Tyrel: Barb> :: sets a souvenir Shirt on Bren's Sun Chair :: BrenFaliver: +Erich+ OOOOOH You mean like the ---smiles at Barb and nods again, and stammers until she walks away--- all the old stories we're not allowed to know about? Man, this trial could be GREAT, I'll get the popcorn machine from backstage! Cmdr JFarrington: ::sits next to KK on her bed::: It's been ten minutes, and they haven't come for me, so..... :::glances around::: not sure about this. Annika Sorenson: It's too bad, I liked it here.

Callista Tyrel: Yeah...people were nice...:: gets her purse ready :: Would have loved to meet Ricky. Annika Sorenson: Yeah, too bad. There's always Risa though. Kansas Kenickie: Thank you Doctor....

Cmdr JFarrington: Oh, he'll have a field trip with that. :::grin::: BrenFaliver: +Erich+ Are we even equipped or trained in standard methods? Is there a plan? Would it be easier if I join you and Callista? Callista Tyrel: Indeed! :: a gentle hug to Annika :: Yeah...But I sense those Plasma scrubbers calling my name on Manticore.

Doubt I'll get to put my marine biology expertise anytime soon. BrenFaliver: +Erich+ Uh... that sounds like "Keep her alive" and not "Get her back on our ship so we can pop a wheelie on our way out of the system into the sunset" have we already gotten to that level of desperation? Annika Sorenson: put to use*^ Callista Tyrel: You know...I never thought to check if this place had any aquariums in the city. Erich Jaenke: +Bren+ Well, she does not have to be conscious to get her back on the ship. Callista Tyrel: :: wonders why those who raided the casino earlier just did not extract: Kansas themselves....perhaps there is something the Lt. is just not seeing :: Annika Sorenson: I wonder if they did. Annika Sorenson: but then neither did I. Callista Tyrel: I could picture You giving the people in charge of the place a good run for their money on their knowledge! BrenFaliver: +Erich+ Fair enough! So, where do I need to be right now? Erich Jaenke: +Bren+ I will send you what we have to your padd, but nothing quite yet. Annika Sorenson: ::chuckles:: Thanks!

Kansas Kenickie: Everyone will attend court unless you are not supporting your XO. Annika Sorenson: oooh Callista Tyrel: So...if you attend....you can't really help spring you out! Kansas Kenickie: So TBS is like 9.4 hours one night left for Kansas to live. Cmdr JFarrington: So it's going to be evening kind of? Erich Jaenke: What is everyone bringing to the wake? Callista Tyrel: Actually is this going to be a trial behind closed doors ...or is the whole galaxy going to get to tune it? Kansas Kenickie: You would look guilty if you didn't attend Calilsta. BrenFaliver: ::squinty eyes in real life:: This isn't like, the end of the KK story and character is it? Callista Tyrel: ( looks for the dress uniform somewhere....) Kansas Kenickie: no court TV just planet local court tv. Callista Tyrel: okay so you are on TV...okay. Cmdr JFarrington: (full dress isn't required in court) Callista Tyrel: oh okay. Kansas Kenickie: it could be Bren, is she guilty or not. BrenFaliver: ((Good because Bran teleported down with nothing but what's on his back and in his pockets)) Callista Tyrel: Barb gave you a A Five Star Resort Shirt..you got your souvenir Bren! BrenFaliver: LOL, yeah, but I can't imagine that's going to get me into a courtroom :D Cmdr JFarrington: Is that all, Boss? Kansas Kenickie: any questions? Callista Tyrel: Do we have access to the ship? Kansas Kenickie: Before court yes. Callista Tyrel: Okay thanks! Kansas Kenickie: But there are scanners that will pick up weapons brought into court Callista Tyrel: Oh no...just standard engineer stuff ...her tricorder! BrenFaliver: ((tricorder made of CORDITE)) BrenFaliver: ((Mwhaahahahah)) Kansas Kenickie: ::Thwapps Bren::: Callista Tyrel: ( hehe ) Cmdr JFarrington: :::headdesk::: Callista Tyrel: Okay I am set....Glad you got some simming in Bren! Callista Tyrel: Okay that is all from me...have a good night! Kansas Kenickie: How mad would McFly be and KK if you got yourself jailed for them? BrenFaliver: Yeah! After I spent a ridiculous sum replacing a bunch of networking gear for a $10 cable.... BrenFaliver: Well, if they are in jail, their opinions don't carry much weight. Callista Tyrel: ( But we love you KK ! ) BrenFaliver: Unless KK is gonna shank us in the yard during… uh… recess? Whatever they call it in prison. Kansas Kenickie: Yard time. Cmdr JFarrington: Crew dismissed. Be well. Be Safe. Don’t forget your towel.

Cmdr JFarrington: :::slowly walking toward them, she stops, waiting for their attention::: Erich Jaenke: ~ Section 31...a? ~ Callista Tyrel: I just think, given the ship we are on and the experience on Mork's world...an alter ego might be of use.

  10. ~MORE THAN A HANDFUL OF YEARS AGO~ By K.Kenickie The Academy campus was silent and the students were tucked away in their dooms studying for their finals. Others were putting the finishing touches on the exams that were to come. Kansas had picked the perfect night to complete her first solo mission. Some people would rather have the hustle and bustle of a busy campus to blend into, but not her. The sound of silence was all she needed to know that she was alone. All shades were pulled down and she had the place to herself. Even if there was a prying eye all they would see was another student walking across the quad. she had acquired a uniform, blonde wig and would blend in perfectly. Kansas stopped in front of the Apollo science building. She counted three windows across and four up. That was her target: a science nerd asking too many questions and poking the wrong bear. She removed a small device from her pocket and turned it on. It was the size of a ring box, but it had the power to take down every camera around her. She pulled her gloves on and started her climb up the side of the building, staying as close as she could manage in this gravity level. She knew her prize once she finished this mission: she would be the youngest in operations history to pass all her skills missions and a solo kill. She could move forward and have her pick of team operations or solo missions. Kansas froze. She was so deep in thought that she almost missed the sound of people walking across the quad, the shrill cackles of girls returning to their dorm from the library. Kansas tried to pull herself closer to the side of the building. She had decided to free climb the building—there would be no signs of her presence that way. She had one more level to climb. She wanted to sigh, her tolerance of fleet children was slim. The little Fleeters thought that they were the rulers of the stars... if they only knew how easy they had it. Once the quad drew silent, she started up to the fourth floor. The lights of the office were still on and that meant that her target was still hard at work, her hand slipped slightly on the ledge of the windowsill.... someone was expecting her, and dusted the ledge. Leaving no sign or evidence was clearly not an option anymore, she decided to climb higher than the ledge. So much for no sign. She hammered a climbing loop above the window, quickly slid the climbing cable into the loop and snapped the d-loop into the hook and hung freely from the building, then leaned back. Silently rotating upside down she was now standing on the top of the window looking in. Her target was busy- busy working away on his newest project. Kansas pulled out her key spanner and easily opened the lock to the window and turned off the alarm at the same time. She smirked as she returned the spanner to her belt and slid the window open without a sound. Kansas loosened climbing cable pushed off the building and landed in the lab crouched down making the slightest of noise. Doctor Whitehead was deep in thought examining the slides, then abruptly looked at his PADD. Kansas observed him for a moment, she couldn't see anything nefarious or criminal about the man. He was tall and lanky with a full head of white hair all disheveled; his lab coat was just as messy. Kansas didn't want to know what kind of yuck was on that thing. But it wasn't her job to think about the targets, her job was protecting those who couldn't handle the realities of the universe. It was time... Kansas walked up behind the Doctor and stood there for a moment. Did she want her first kill to be so easy? Then again... tomorrow is another day. Another day, another kill. Kansas pulled her knife and took a thick, tight grip of the Doctor's hair. She clearly startled him, from the sounds of his gasps and lack of struggling - her knife slid through his throat like it was melted butter. She let go of him and he dropped to the ground.... it had all gone as planned, maybe not getting blood all over herself but practice makes perfect. "HEY YOU!!" shouted someone from the door. Kansas tightened her cable and leaped out the window, pulled herself up to the climbing loop, put her feet against the top of the window and pulled on it until it released. When it did release Kansas could feel herself free falling to the ground below, but somehow she was able to grasp the ledge to the second windows ledge. She dangled there holding on with one hand, slowly got her footing and started the rest of her descent. By now alarms inside the building were blaring and security would soon lock the place down. With very few options, Kansas slid behind a Yew bush that was growing against a brick wall. She removed her cadet uniform, pulled the wig off and poured lighter fluid over all of it. She was left in a black tank top and matching shorts, pulled her hair back, and hoped that they would buy that she was an evening runner. She lit the clothes and wig on fire and slid down the long wall of yew bushes, scratching herself up in the process. Once she thought she was far enough away from both incidents she jogged out from behind the bushes and jogged off to the safe haven of the docks. ~ Gilbert sat on the floor next to his professor and couldn't help but cry. Security officers were asking him a million questions at once. Maybe it was shock or the trauma of watching the only person in his life that gave a damn about him get his throat slit open in front of him, but one thing he was sure of... he would never forget the face of that bitch and he would do everything he could to get her... make her suffer. "Cadet McRoy??... Cadet McRoy, we have questions that only you can answer." Repeated the security office for the third time.

  12. The McRoy Conspiracy Cdr Kansas Kenickie Captain McRoy was extremely pleased with himself, he had finally caught that (B)witch that killed his mentor... the man who was like a father to him. He had been searching for that face since he had finished the academy and now... NOW! He has her in his brig. There had been so many close calls and images that he knew were her but his case had been bumped down to low priority or worse—no confirmation on ID's of both people. Now that she was on his posting it was his call on what was to be done. McRoy sat down in a huff and turned his monitor on and accepted the incoming call. An older woman with a small weasley face came on the screen. "McRoy... this again? you have been after this mystery women for what ...Over 15 years, you were still a cadet. My advice is to leave it alone. Mashell Whitehead was into projects most people didn't want to know about. I can only guess that those unconfirmed projects are what got him killed. It was a part of his life he didn't tell anyone about, and for good reason as you don't you? it got him killed and many enemies along the way. Most of the lunar council disagreed with his project ideas, even the Federation President himself had a word with him on his weapons projects and then his science under the table deals he was proven to have a hand in it. for your own career. LET. IT. GO" The screen went black and the fleet logo came on the screen... This wasn't over.. he was going to make her pay.

Callista Tyrel: He’d be a great spy Gila? Gila Orrak: Well, not a Cardassian spy, unless he was infiltrating the Federation. Kansas Kenickie: my orders come from the top, if they wanted me gone they would just kill me. Gila Orrak: I could ask some of my people if they need someone like him. Gila Orrak: Probably only pay him in Kanar though.. Kansas Kenickie: well, atomize me. Erich Jaenke: That sounds messy, and this sounds more legit, from their perspective.
