Cmdr JFarrington

USS Manticore - 7/27/2020 - New Las Vegas

Manticore Brief Stardate 52007.27 "N.L.V. Law"
After the trial of the Commander goes off the rails, by any standard, the senior staff awaits the courtroom to find the verdict. The proceedings demonstrated a clear bias of the court. Objections and evidence from the defense were ignored to fast-track to the main event: sentencing. We find the crew, the Commander, and her armed escort making their way back to the courtroom.

We open with: The Crew all gather at the Brig to walk with their Commander to the Courtroom.

Cmdr JFarrington: Leander> On it, ma'am. Hold on.
Callista Tyrel: I supposed that was expected. :: looks over to Annika and Gila :: Hopefully no guilt by association will be upon us.

Annika Sorenson: That's what I hope.

Gila Orrak: How is the Captain?
Kansas Kenickie: sounds like a dream.
Amanda Davis PhD: He's stable, but not any more than that. Has occasional dreams.
Callista Tyrel: Not sure....That Judge was slouched over like a deceased obese cow, complete with tongue hanging out ... kinda gross.
Erich Jaenke: Is anyone in pursuit?
Kansas Kenickie: ::Looks at Jami::: I was worried my S.O.S. didn't make it out in time.
Cmdr JFarrington: Leander> Changing course to Asteroid Belt 278. Not many know how to get there.

Amanda Davis PhD: :::steps aside:::
Gila Orrak: Our Commander has some interesting friends.
Callista Tyrel: :: to Erich :: Commander should I report to engineering?
Kansas Kenickie: :::Swirls her knife in her hand:: (w) Hello beautiful.

Kansas Kenickie: ::Looks over Callista's knife::: I can get you one that no section can pick up ::Holds up her own::
Annika Sorenson: I didn't know you carried a knife in your ankle.
Annika Sorenson: Can I have one?
Gila Orrak: Well, his vitals are stabilizing, but he still has a way to go.
Erich Jaenke: :: Sitting at an engineering station on the bridge ::
Kansas Kenickie: you need knife skills to swing these blades.
Callista Tyrel: It's a Tool Utility knife..but that material would be nice to have Commander Kenickie.
Annika Sorenson: Ah.
Callista Tyrel: Well I suppose that is more special operations training to have. :: smiles ::
Kansas Kenickie: Mine is made of Latimum, no one expects money to kill you.
Cmdr JFarrington: Mister Leander, pick a good asteroid to hide us for a while.
Annika Sorenson: That's really neat.
Cmdr JFarrington: Leander> Oh, I know the belt pretty well, Commander. Got a good place to settle in.
Kansas Kenickie: ::Evil Smile:: didn't you ever wonder why it was never picked up on any of our Missions?
Cmdr JFarrington: :::nod::: You have the con. :::stands::: I'll be with Commander Kenickie.
Gila Orrak: We should be able to release him to his quarters. Surely the sleep should be better there.
Callista Tyrel: It would be an insult to the Ferengi for the pattern buffers to remove Latinum..
Kansas Kenickie: everyone please to the lounge, Commander Farrington and myself will be down there shortly.
Cmdr JFarrington: :::straightens her uniform and approaches KK::::

Kansas Kenickie: I mean I have put myself in deadly spots but not like that.
Callista Tyrel: :: arrives at Lounge and takes a seat ::

Annika Sorenson: ::sips her offered beverage:: I'm sure he would've been nice.
Kansas Kenickie: :::Starts crying - not one to show emotions everrrrrr::
Cmdr JFarrington: :::glances out the viewport::: Looks like Lt Leander found a nice place to settle the ship.
Callista Tyrel: He could have been one of those guys who used a fake holo image is suppose....
Annika Sorenson: I suppose..
Cmdr JFarrington: :::knowing she has to get it out so she just watches KK::::
Erich Jaenke: Commander?
Kansas Kenickie: I was so careless going down there.
Callista Tyrel: Fireman Guy...best memory of NLV.
Cmdr JFarrington: :::listening::: Were you careless, or were the others just out to get whoever they wanted to?
Cmdr JFarrington: It's not your fault, Kansas.
Kansas Kenickie: ::Stops crying quickly, sniffles, then stands up right:: Erich?
Callista Tyrel: And...getting to know my shipmates better.
Cmdr JFarrington: He's in the lounge.
Annika Sorenson: Yes, on both. It was short but very memorable. Hopefully, our next vacation time will be a little more uneventful.
Cmdr JFarrington: It wasn't your fault, Kansas.
Kansas Kenickie: ::Sighs::: It was my fault, I killed those people... and I never even gave any of them a second thought.
Erich Jaenke: Could have told us you have a past on that planet.
Cmdr JFarrington: If you hadn't killed them, they would have continued killing others. It was your duty, Kansas.
Kansas Kenickie: the Federation need people to do their dirty work, I was their sword
Cmdr JFarrington: :::slow nod:::
Kansas Kenickie: but I didn't think about those lives, it was just a job.
Callista Tyrel: Annika...seriously thank you for what fun we did have down there....as small an amount as it was.
Annika Sorenson: ::Smiles:: Hey, anytime. I'm always down for a girls night out.
Callista Tyrel: I just will stay away from "Atomic Brandy" in the future. :: chuckles and takes a sip of water ::
Cmdr JFarrington: Did they think about the lives they killed?
Cmdr JFarrington: You did what you had to.
Kansas Kenickie: Some of them were just in the way.
Cmdr JFarrington: You did what you needed to.
Kansas Kenickie: >>>> Pause Sim <<<
Kansas Kenickie: >>>Pause Sim<<<
Kansas Kenickie: Oh man Atomic Brandy is the Bomb
Cmdr JFarrington: ROFL
Kansas Kenickie: Such a bad pun.
Callista Tyrel: :: kerplunk ::
Kansas Kenickie: So how did everyone like my very first plot?
Cmdr JFarrington: Fantastic.
Annika Sorenson: Yeah, it was fun.
Callista Tyrel: fun indeed!
Kansas Kenickie: I think I move mine a little faster than McFly.
Cmdr JFarrington: "I like this ship. It's exciting."
Kansas Kenickie: any questions before we depart?
Erich Jaenke: Now to get away from this planet?
Cmdr JFarrington: TBS?
Kansas Kenickie: 24 hours, 38 minutes and 12 seconds
Annika Sorenson: nice
Cmdr JFarrington: We're already in an asteroid belt and the asteroid we're going to settle into is pretty awesome.
Callista Tyrel: copy
Cmdr JFarrington: Copy that, Boss.
Kansas Kenickie: So Party harty
