USS Manticore - 4/27/2020 - Manticore's 22nd Year

Welcome to the 22 year of USS Manticore!

Cmdr JFarrington: Thank you, Commandant Atragon and Admiral Sovak, for joining us this evening.
Cmdr JFarrington: As we move into this next year, remember those who have passed.
Cmdr JFarrington: Also, remember to celebrate after the sim. Food, cake, and yes, the cake is NOT a lie.
BrenFaliver: ::runs off screen to fire up the popcorn machine for old times sake::
= /\ = Manticore Brief Stardate 52004.27  = /\ =

Nothing is alive more than the planet of New Las Vegas. 
Holosuites for solo or convention-sized crowds. 
Games of skill like Dabo, poker, and tri-dimensional chess. 
Restaurants representing cultures from around the galaxy with foods for every palette. 
Then the starship USS Manticore arrived for a much-needed rest after a stressful mission. 
The first shift departs to pleasures unknown.
Commandant Atragon-9: ACTION: INCOMING HAIL
Cmdr JFarrington: COM> +This is USS Manticore, go ahead.+
Commandant Atragon-9: COM> + Manticore, this is Commandant Atragon-9 of the Illus Garrison at Titan, requesting permission to dock +
Cmdr JFarrington: COM> Commandant Atragon-9, you are clear to dock at berthing A-22. Respond.
Commandant Atragon-9: COM> + A9, ack +
Sovak: ::To A9:: Do you still remember how to dock?
Annika Sorenson: @ ::with Callista somewhere::
BrenFaliver: ::Sitting in the Science Lab, puttering on the main console::
Commandant Atragon-9: :: turns to Sovak :: It's just that big red button, right?
Callista Tyrel: @ :: next to Annika on the surface of New Las Vegas...just outside the Large..." Inviting " Casino
Cmdr JFarrington: COM> +A-9+ Welcome aboard, Sir.
Commandant Atragon-9: Uhh, Green, Green button
Sovak: Of course.
Commandant Atragon-9: Blue??
Callista Tyrel: @ Well I bet they have some interesting things inside...let's go have a look.
Erich Jaenke: @ :: Still at the hotel they were instructed to beam to, with the CMO ::
Annika Sorenson: @ Sure, let's go.
Sovak: ::raises an eyebrow:: Computer. Standard docking procedures.
Annika Sorenson: @ ::Smiles and heads into the casino::
BrenFaliver: ::Sotto Voce to Farrington:: Hmf, what did you do?
Commandant Atragon-9: Just kidding, I ... oh, yeah, that works, too
Gila Orrak: @ :: Sitting with the CEng ::
Sovak: I think you may have been piloting a desk for too long.
Cmdr JFarrington: +Docking Bay+ Prepare to welcome Commandant Atragon-9 and company on A-22. ::to Bren:: Well, I haven’t done anything wrong, if that’s what you mean.  ::shrug:: I’ll meet them at the docking bay.
Callista Tyrel: @ Hope they have a good bar. :: enters the Casino entrance door and his hit by the cool rush of a climate controlled environment ::
Erich Jaenke: @ :: Looks next to him :: You seem distant, I don't have to be a Betazoid to see that.
Commandant Atragon-9: :: to Sovak :: I hear that!
Gila Orrak: @ It's the change from ship to planet. I have not been on a planet for...many months.
Annika Sorenson: @ I hope so as well. I could use a good drink. ::looks at all the casino games and card tables::
Sovak: I apologize. Should I speak up in the future?
Cmdr JFarrington: ::turns to OIC:: Ensign, inform docking bay A-22 that the Commandant and his party is coming aboard so they are greeted appropriately.
Callista Tyrel: @ Don't worry Annika...I only have read about Dabo...and I was never good at Gambling at the Academy...errr...well pretend gambling
Commandant Atragon-9: ((Uh oh, off to the Brig, huh? ))
Erich Jaenke: @ ACTION: The casino Sorenson and Tyrel enter is oddly sized... in fact for a variety of species of all shapes and sizes.
Cmdr JFarrington: ((best place to be. Nice and quiet))
Annika Sorenson: @ ::looks around:: Hm,
Erich Jaenke: @ :: Pulls Orrak up :: Let's meet with Sorenson and Tyrel.
Sovak: ::stands and makes his way to the door, standing aside for A9 to precede him::
BrenFaliver: ::Checks a chronometer, a few hours until he should head to the transporter::
Gila Orrak: :: Gets up :: Oh sure.
Commandant Atragon-9: :: steps onto the deck and smiles :: Wow, it's been a long while, hmm?
Callista Tyrel: @:: looks around taking in the ...interesting atmosphere...with odd ergonomics ..::
Sovak: INdeed.
Erich Jaenke: @:: Walks to the casino the other two reportedly entered... and their locators indicated.
Callista Tyrel: @:: still sporting her vacation attire ::
Sovak: ::falls in step with A9::
Annika Sorenson: @ ::Likewise, but it's not the worst:: I think it's over this way.
Erich Jaenke: @ :: Reaches Tyrel and Sorenson :: Hello
Annika Sorenson: @Oh, hey.
Commandant Atragon-9: So, with most of the crew on shoreleave, shall we have a coup?
Gila Orrak: @ :: Felt a bit out of her element ::
Callista Tyrel: @ :: notes Erich and Gila :: Hi guys! :: removes her shades ::
Cmdr JFarrington: I heard that, Commandant. ::steps out of the lift just as they begin their usual shenanigans::.
Erich Jaenke: @ Callista and Annika...is it that bright?
Annika Sorenson: @ ::Smiles:: How're you doin? ::lowers her shades:: All these lights man
Sovak: I can never tell if he is serious or not. Then again, I never could.
Commandant Atragon-9: Well alright then, we can give you a role in the cabal.
Sovak: Commander. ::nods:: It is good to see you.
Callista Tyrel: @ Outside sir..
Erich Jaenke: @ They are using a lot of lights illuminated with neon gas.
Cmdr JFarrington: And good to see you, Admiral.
Cmdr JFarrington: And... my husband. ::she says quietly::
Annika Sorenson: @ Yes, they certainly do.
Gila Orrak: @ :: Feeling nervous ::
Commandant Atragon-9: :: smiles at Jami with the slightest of nods ::
Callista Tyrel: @ That would not be cheap. Gila, ever been to a casino like this?
Gila Orrak: @ No...I avoid places with many people.
Cmdr JFarrington: ::waves them toward the lift:: Most of the crew is on planet, so we have *everything* to ourselves.
Gila Orrak: @ I never was into Cardassian forms of gambling.
Annika Sorenson: @Yeah, I'm not too great with card games either. Haven't really done it too much.
Cmdr JFarrington: And ::as she steps into the lift:: I notice that you keep the Pegasus neat and clean. ::wan smile:::
Callista Tyrel: @ oh...uhm.. okay. :: looks to Chief Erich :: Maybe we should go somwhere less crowded?
Commandant Atragon-9: The Illus demand it - and help me clean it.
Annika Sorenson: @As long as the drinks are nice ::smile::
Gila Orrak: @ No no... we each have our demons Callista.
Cmdr JFarrington: Wonderful. :::to the lift::: Command deck.
Callista Tyrel: @ Maybe a drink then?
Gila Orrak: @ That would be good.
Annika Sorenson: @All right, lead the way. ::to Callista::
Callista Tyrel: @Uhm did you spy a watering hole Chief?
Erich Jaenke: @ :: Notices Gila clinging to him. Either she was unaware of how much or knew exactly what she was doing. ::
Commandant Atragon-9: Sovak and I are really just here for a short visit. I know that I left some things behind all those months ago. I am here to pick them up
Cmdr JFarrington: Admiral Sovak, how is your family? ::the lift stops and the door opens to reveal a smorgasbord beyond belief:::
Erich Jaenke: @ :: Looks at his padd, many dots pop up :: Any direction.
Callista Tyrel: @ :: looks for the less crowded area :: Let's go this way...
Commandant Atragon-9: (( There's a smorgasbord on the Command Deck, it HAS been awhile ))
Cmdr JFarrington: Pick them up? Um.... :::clears her throat::: I'm not sure.... that they're still here.
Erich Jaenke: @ There's a place called the Drunken Klingon...
Annika Sorenson: @ ::walks next to Callista:: Sounds interesting
Callista Tyrel: @ Wow. Let's try that out!
Cmdr JFarrington: ((Well, we're docked, most are on planet, and we have the place to ourselves))
Annika Sorenson: @::nods::
Annika Sorenson: @ Been to New Vegas before? ::to Erich::
Cmdr JFarrington: Anyway... since you left, the ship has been refurbished, as you obviously noticed.
Commandant Atragon-9: They are hidden in the walls of the Ready Room, so unless the ship is a rebuild, I should still be able to get to it all.
Erich Jaenke: @ :: Follows the group :: I have not. :: notices a look from a few, one man with three women. He could sense the looks all around him ::
Sovak: Doing well, last time I spoke with them.
Erich Jaenke: @ :: Closes his eyes as the nerves and fears of Gila wash over him ::
Cmdr JFarrington: Oh.. I was wondering what made those walls bulged.
Commandant Atragon-9: I'll be right back, shouldn't take too long
Commandant Atragon-9: :: Heads for the Ready Room ::
Gila Orrak: @ :: Looks at Erich :: You can feel that?
Callista Tyrel: @ Notes an establishment with Klingon writing ....with dark colors and dimly lit :: Would that be it sir?
Annika Sorenson: @::looks up at the sign:: Looks like it.
Erich Jaenke: @ :: nods, then points to a table to sit at ::
Erich Jaenke: @ Yes, let's sit.
Gila Orrak: @ I am attempting to compress my emotions Chief.
Cmdr JFarrington: ::Sovak:: :::smiles as he leaves::: And the children? Has anyone of them taken a career in Starfleet?
Erich Jaenke: @ :: sits :: Not working, exactly.
Callista Tyrel: @ :: takes a seat ...noting the Klingon themes ::
Cmdr JFarrington: ::wishing that the crew was here:::
Erich Jaenke: @ :: Wondered about Gila's closeness, but would ask about it later, and explain it to Keb later than that ::
Cmdr JFarrington: ::waves a hand at the food::: Please, Admiral. Enjoy yourself while you are waiting.
Annika Sorenson: @::sits down as well, taking in the ambience::
Erich Jaenke: @ :: Reads a menu :: I think that is Diet Blood Wine. How is that a thing?
Sovak: It seems not. It is well. they have their own pursuits.
Cmdr JFarrington: Of course.
BrenFaliver: ::Gets up and heads to the transporter room a tad early, assuming the transporter chief will let him wiggle in::
Cmdr JFarrington: And your wife? I recall that she was very good at what she does.
Callista Tyrel: @ Hmm...nice touch with the simulated torches.
Annika Sorenson: @::smiles and nods, looks over a menu as well::
Commandant Atragon-9: ::Returns from the Ready Room with a large backpack over one shoulder, snagging a deviled egg as he passes ::
Cmdr JFarrington: ::Hands Sovak a plate and takes one for herself.. it's a small smorgasbord::
Callista Tyrel: @ :: chuckles :: A barrel of Bloodwine for only...:: mentions credit amount ::
Sovak: Thank you.
Callista Tyrel: @ :: looks to Annika :: I have never had Bloodwine guess now is the time to try it.
Annika Sorenson: @I suppose so. I'll try it if you will.
Commandant Atragon-9: I'll be right back, but I have to get this into stasis on the Pegasus right away.
Gila Orrak: @ I will start with a shot
BrenFaliver: ::To Transporter Room Guy:: Ah, no yes I mean, I know my transporter slot isn't for a little while, but I've wrapped everything up, I feel like I might as well get this over with.
Cmdr JFarrington: ::takes a few hors d'oeuvres for herself:::
Erich Jaenke: @ So... how is everyone doing, after our last ordeal?
Callista Tyrel: @ Shots smart play Gila.
Callista Tyrel: @ So far, so good. Ice Cream and shopping. :: smiles ::
Commandant Atragon-9: :: heads into the TL :: Back in a jiffy.
Annika Sorenson: @::sits closer to Callista:: Same. We managed to get some nice dresses and sandals for us.
Cmdr JFarrington: ::quietly, to Sovak::: Just exactly does he have that needs stasis?
Gila Orrak: @ I do not do dresses.
Annika Sorenson: @Somwhow that doesn't surprise me, though I am curious mow. ::smile::
BrenFaliver: ::Continued:: Light? Yes? What do I need to carry for 8 or 10 hours? .... what do you mean days, I fully intend to sleep in my own bed.
Commandant Atragon-9: :: sends private ping to Sovak :: Have it, we need to go, make your exit.
Callista Tyrel: @ Annika is a great fashion advisor Gila.
Gila Orrak: @ I just never have. Life in the Obs... medical field just did not leave a lot of time.
Cmdr JFarrington: :::somewhat alarmed as they seem to tip-toe around:::
Sovak: Thank you, Commander. I must depart.
BrenFaliver: :: Continues :: And who exactly is issuing the credits for a hotel room? You know, 'relaxation' is an awful lot of freakin' work...
Commandant Atragon-9: :: exits TL at the shuttle bay, heading to the Pegasus :: Deck officer, stand by for our departure.
Cmdr JFarrington: Oh... such a short time. But you're always welcome. Take care.
Cmdr JFarrington: And please take some food with you.
Cmdr JFarrington: There's only a skeleton crew aboard, and I get the honor to keep her safe.
Gila Orrak: @ :: drinks her shot :: Ahh
BrenFaliver: :: Pt 4 :: GAH, forget it, I may or may not be back in a couple hours. ::Heads up to the Bridge for the Science console::
Sovak: Thank you, Commander.
Sovak: ::heads to the Peg::
Commandant Atragon-9: :: in the Pegasus, starting the pre-flight, the nacelles still warm ::
Annika Sorenson: @. ::swirls her blood wine and takes a small sip:: Whoa..
Cmdr JFarrington: :::stands there, silent, not only curious but somewhat sad that they will not stay:::
Erich Jaenke: @ :: drinks his mildly proofed mixed drink ::
Cmdr JFarrington: ::nods to Ensign Jackson at helm:::
BrenFaliver: ::Pops onto the bridge, a bit confused at seeing a lower ranked duty officer in charge, but says nothing going to Sci-1::
Callista Tyrel: @ :: takes a sip and savors the flavor :: Interesting.
Cmdr JFarrington: Jackson> +Pegasus+ You are clear to launch. Good hunting.
Commandant Atragon-9: :: targets a focused transporter beam and grabs the tray of deviled eggs ::
Sovak: ::enters and takes the copilot seat:: YOu got it?
Commandant Atragon-9: Yup - and the eggs, too!
Callista Tyrel: ( hehe )
Cmdr JFarrington: ((:::snarkle::))
Callista Tyrel: @ Not bad..::: finishes her shot ::
Sovak: Excellent.
Commandant Atragon-9: COM> Ack Manticore, this is the Pegasus on departure. Thanks for the garage space!
BrenFaliver: ::sits bolt upright in his chair:: Pegasus? Wait, the Pegasus was here?
Sovak: ((Good to see you all again))
Gila Orrak: @ :: Another shot ::
Commandant Atragon-9: ((Happy 22, Manticore! ))
Erich Jaenke: (thanks)
Cmdr JFarrington: Happy 22 to You!!
Callista Tyrel: ( bye guys! )
Annika Sorenson: (Happy anniversary)
Cmdr JFarrington: (Thank you for coming aboard)
