The Adriatic, commanded by LTCDR Lawliet, is about to depart to investigate the temporal fold. They might or might not stumble onto information on the Lore Kings.

  3. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 17 November 2017 14 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.103 TBS is 1 hour. The time is 1400 hours (2:00 PM) Aegis local. LT CDR Lawliet will command the Adriatic as they investigate the temporal fold that caught the Romulan ship, Ma’ev. While investigating, they just might stumble onto information regarding the Lore Kings, or the path they took millennia ago. Because the temporal fold is close to Alien Alliance space, Captain Ramson has ordered Alpha Squadron with Runabout support to patrol the area around the Adriatic. At sim begin, LT CDR will reveal his chosen crew and ready them for the voyage.

Ma'ev crew is on Aegis, getting medical and psychological assistance. We are concerned about the time loop posing a threat to other ships.

Dacia Sandero: ::feels little hungry now, works on her new patient giving them a hypo and a wave of the dermal regenerator.

Nijil tr'Korjata: @ This may not be a bad planet to settle on, but I enjoy a bit of technology. Amanda Davis PhD: There are a few, of course, who have scars from fighting. But there are none major. Kallah Ramson: And you can't do it all. Chirakis: 10:30 PM mimipavilion: Alright, but I have a feeling of something else from you. Understood.

Even as an engineer, the lives of the station sometimes rested on my actions. But as an engineer, I was part of a team of equals. Kallah Ramson: But, just as you said... the success comes from the competence of the crew...and getting the most out of that. Scott Coleridge: Being captain strikes me as a very lonely thing.

Scott Coleridge: ::mumbles something about competence never being rewarded:: Kallah Ramson: But, I am happy if you do decide to stay here. Scott Coleridge: Anyway, if you think I'm the best person to command the Adriatic mission, I'll do it. I won't like it, but I'll do it. Otherwise, Commander Lawliet seems like the most logical choice for such a mission. Jylliene: @ ::chuckles:: Gila Orrak: :: Sits at a table in the midst of the lunch crowd :: mimipavilion: ::smiles a bit:: Sorry, as a psychologist I'm sure you would have some theories about their previous and current status, change wise that is. Alexis McFarland: ::Moves onto her dessert of mango sorbet:: Kallah Ramson: I was actually considering Lawliet too. I am sending SubCommander Jorahl on the mission as an adviser. Jylliene: @ I think the station suits Annisha well. But if we were to consider our own family, I feel like I'd want them to have a home world. Scott Coleridge: ::nods:: I would have expected as much. Amanda Davis PhD: Oh yes. Definitely. But I received their records in... well... record time. Romulans are meticulous, and I was surprised to find that they had no previous problems. Scott Coleridge: As you're aware, I made Lawliet my XO on the Aegean mission...was planning to even before he expressed interest in trying out command. Nijil tr'Korjata: @ It will be Captain Annisha. Jylliene: @ ::chuckles:: No doubt of that. mimipavilion: ::nods and smiles:: Elaborate. Please. Amanda Davis PhD: However, this means that what the are experiencing now was probably caused by the time loop and/or their experience with finding the... Lore Kings' path. Jylliene: @ Unless she decides to be a more behind-the-scenes type Dacia Sandero: ::decides to head over to the food court for lunch, looking around at various food stalls:: Kallah Ramson: Then it's decided.

Alexis McFarland: What're we gonna do after lunch? Lawliet: ::gets out onto the CnC:: Amanda Davis PhD: Those who are inured, I released only from psychological evaluation. I leave them to you.

Chirakis: (Perfect) Kallah Ramson: I want a full investigation into both the time loo.... time fold AND the Lore Kings. But, I have been commanded not to investigate the latter. Annisha: I can be a good girl, I just don't wanna. mimipavilion: Ok, send me your list you released psychologically and see if they're ready to be released physically. Fletcher Jackson: ::bites his lip as he sends more to voicemail::: Alexis McFarland: Heh Amanda Davis PhD: ::nods to Mimi:: Of course. I'll send them right away. Kallah Ramson: Luckily the Admiral picked a poor choice of wording, so I will not do any investigating. Amanda Davis PhD: Or.. I will send it right away. mimipavilion: Thanks. ::chuckles:: Kallah Ramson: But there's something important about this that can't be ignored. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: :: Sees Gila in the distance :: Scott Coleridge: But if Commander Lawliet and SubCommander Jorahl were to happen across data about the Lore Kings as they investigated the phenomenon...

Jylliene: @ ::shrugs:: Depends. In a crew already used to a mix of Romulan and Starfleet officers? Likely not much differently than to any other captain. A full Starfleet crew being assigned a Romulan captain might be a bit different, though. Nijil tr'Korjata: @ :: Looks ahead :: Are those large barrels with steam rising from them? Scott Coleridge: ::motions for Lawliet to sit if he likes:: Have you found enough in the Ma'ev's data to narrow down a search region? Kallah Ramson: ::steps over towards Chirakis:: Chirakis: ::she turns:: Captain. Jylliene: @ ::peers:: Not sure. No. No, they are not. There is nothing strange over there. We are going back to the cabin and not investigating anything. Lawliet: ::takes a seat:: Just now sir. I've been able to narrow it down to a region of 5 square light years. Fletcher Jackson: ::he sighs and continues on, doing what he was told to do::: Jylliene: @ We are vacationers here. We'll report it on our way out. Scott Coleridge: Good work. I know that computer core wasn't in good shape. Kallah Ramson: Adriatic will be going on a science mission. this should be outside of Alliance space. However, I'd like to increase patrols near that edge of their space, just in case they go wandering too close to our mission. Scott Coleridge: The Adriatic is being prepped for a mission to investigate the temporal fold as we speak. Alexis McFarland: Yummy ::finishes her lunch and dessert:: Chirakis: ::listens carefully::: Scott Coleridge: Captain Ramson and I want you to be the one to command the mission. Nijil tr'Korjata: @ Yeah, but there are chairs and towels next to them. Lawliet: ::nods:: Very good. When do we depart? Lawliet: Wait Lawliet: Me? Scott Coleridge: You. Jylliene: @ ::a quiet moment:: Oh. Jylliene: @ Then let's take a peek. Lawliet: ::a bit taken back:: ....Aye sir. Scott Coleridge: I believe an old Earth aphorism is appropriate: "Be careful what you wish for." ::smile:: You said you wanted more experience on the command track. Nijil tr'Korjata: @ :: Walks up to the oversized half-barrel :: Chirakis: Whom do you have in mind for patrols, Captain? Task Force Aegis is patrolling on the edge of known space. Scott Coleridge: Captain Ramson is assigning SubCommander Jorahl as a scientific and engineering adviser. Kallah Ramson: With Aegean and Apanex having AQS drives, we can't send them out at the moment. So we'll need to have fighters on patrol. Lawliet: ::raises an eyebrow:: I just didn't expect a command assignment so soon. Lawliet: ::nods:: Understood. Scott Coleridge: Other than that, you will need to let me know what crew and any other equipment you need. Chirakis: Should I approach the admiralty and request them? Chirakis: 10:58 PM Scott Coleridge: You'll depart as soon as you're ready. Lawliet: ::stands up:: I'll have a crew roster ready for you in an hour. Kallah Ramson: I believe our own complement of fighters should do. Make arrangements. Use Runabouts to extend their range as needed. Chirakis: Yes, Captain. Alexis McFarland: ::holds Miana:: Scott Coleridge: You did well as my XO on Aegean. Just one word of advice: trust your crew.

Kallah Ramson: It is an Aegean class, but designed with more Starfleet tech. So, it will have a normal Starfleet feel and all. Though, I do believe ops and tac still have to stand. Lawliet: What does an Aegean class ship look like again? It's been so long Lawliet: So something like an Intrepid Kallah Ramson: Somewhat, but smaller. Lawliet: got it Chirakis: Questions from the crew? Tarisa: I really hope Lawliet won't have a crew roster. Should I be worried?

  5. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 3 November 2017 14 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.103 TBS is 4 hours. The time is 1200 hours (12:00 PM) Aegis local. The crew of Ma’ev continues to recover. With over 1,000 rescued from Ma’ev, the medical complex is overwhelmed. All medical personnel have been activated, including those who are trained for basic medical assistance. Arrangements are being made for rehabilitation and short-term billeting. Our greatest concern is determining if the time loop that trapped Ma’ev poses a threat to other ships. Lt Commander Lawliet is re-compiling data from Ma’ev’s computer core and back-tracking their route to both pin down the reason for the time loop and to verify the Ma’ev commander’s claim of finding the path of the Lore Kings.
  6. Mars Approaching The small viewport that encircled the station’s pinnacle was primarily constructed to give engineers access to the delicate electronics housed therein. Kirel Chirakis, however, found it a place of meditation. She often came here to recover from the stress of command, and this morning it was desperately needed. The uncertainty of Ma’ev and its crew and the possibility of losing the Romulan she most admired had pressed her almost beyond her ability to cope. Here, at the station’s pinnacle, she could relax, alone in a silence broken only by the gentle hum of electronics and the occasional click of shifting parameters. Just outside, fighters, shuttles, and starships engaged in a perpetual dance between the station and flight corridors, flowing smoothly and silently, with only a sudden burst of light to indicate their exit vectors. Beyond them nearby stars and distant galaxies scattered the darkness. ‘Tis a strange thing, this Sky Harbor we call Aegis. She mused. It was designed with a practicality that would help it endure for generations, and yet it is merely a planet in reverse, fashioned to give an illusion of security. Its inhabitants live within its frame instead of on the surface. The fragile exterior that allows them to survive contains an equally fragile interior that allows them to live as though we were on a planet, yet one false move could erase the lives of nearly 6,000 in an instant. Like Ma’ev on a grand scale. Like her crew. Like Jorahl. Starfleet Intelligence called him The Reaper, for his ability to take captured Federation vessels, pick them apart for their secrets, and cunningly reverse-engineer them for the purposes of the Romulan Star Empire. But that was long ago, before the Federation and the Romulan Star Empire were allies, when Kirel devoted her life to SI-5. “Kh’éile?” Unlike many times before, Captain d’Ka’s psionic intrusion came through gently, with a touch of concern. “Yes?” she replied aloud as she continued to stare into space. “Your mind wanders in directions it has not taken for years.” Her snort came through as more of a laugh. “And you are concerned about the wandering?” “I am. Especially when it wanders in the direction you are about to take.” Corridors cleared and a flight of fighters shot from the bay to begin scheduled defense maneuvers in the asteroid belt. Arms folded, she straightened up to watch. “And what direction would that be?” “Revenge.” She turned slowly, repeating “Revenge?” in surprise. “Kh’éile, the destruction of the Ma’ev, the suffering and death of many, the possibility of losing someone you admire, and the threat of the time loop weigh more heavily than you realize. In the next few days you will have to make difficult decisions. Take care.” The connection broke. After staring blankly for a moment, Kirel turned to the viewport, but her thoughts had turned to other things. Instead of taking the lift, she began a slow descent to the commerce deck and her office, where she would remain for the next few hours to consider his warning.

  8. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 3 November 2017 14 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.104 TBS is 12 hours. The time is 0700 hours (7:00 AM) Aegis local. The Romulan recon vessel, Ma’ev, was caught in a time loop caused by a faulty AQS. Due to masterful planning and expertise, SubCommander Jorahl stabilized the AQS long enough to bring the crew into the proper time and evacuate them. On Aegis, Commander Coleridge manipulated Aegis’ power grid and succeeded in beaming most of Ma’ev’s crew from the ship to Aegis. Those who left via escape pods were able to get to Aegis before Ma’ev exploded. In a curious turn of events, Ma’ev’s commanding officer pleaded to save the ship’s computer core, claiming that they had found the path of the Lore King’s clan, a group of Vulcans and Romulans who left thousands of years ago and have since vanished into myth.

Kallah Ramson: ::wince:: Let's try to avoid that. KelsaViegnor: ::continues the training process:: Gila Orrak: Cayne > :: On the bridge of the ship :: Kallah Ramson: What would this involve? Alexis McFarland: ::pets Annisha's head:: Tarisa: Miana> ::Giggles:: Gila Orrak: Annisha > Au giggle a lot Miana.. Alexis McFarland: It's cute Tarisa: Miana> I can not help it. Alexis McFarland: How's your candy, Annisha? Lawliet: ::nods:: It involves installing several prototype resonators throughout the ship. They would send out tachyons that would work along side with the resonance pulses we would trigger. Chirakis: ::in her pacing, she stops by Cayne, at the TAC console:: Anything new? Lawliet: This would, in theory, collapse the anomaly and return the crew to the normal flow of time. Fletcher Jackson: ::keeping busy with the routine in-house things that he should pass on to a minion, but hasn't learned that yet::: Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> And if the frequency is wrong you will increase the effect. Lawliet: ::to Jorahl:: Exactly, but that's not the main problem. mimipavilion: ::Lawliet:: Then what is? Tarisa: ::Ears go in radar mode as she watches Chirakis pace.:: Lawliet: The AQS. In order to the resonators to work, the AQS can't fluctuate. If the power levels change too much, it will create a catalyst that I won't be able to overcome. Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> Then we have a problem. mimipavilion: ::leans back in her chair:: Oy! Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> The scans we took showed the Ma'ev to be working with an AQS that should have already been replaced. It's age is probably why it attracted this anomaly in the first place. Gila Orrak: Cayne > These power sources are very tricky. Lawliet: ::looks around the table:: Is there a way to momentarily stabilize the AQS? Chirakis: ::in her third pace around CnC, she stops at Tarisa's console and says absently:: Any thoughts that would benefit the discussion going on behind closed doors? Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> There are but they do have their own risks. Chirakis: 10:30 PM Lawliet: Seems to be a reoccurring theme. Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> Increasing the mass of the unit will decrease power generation. The system is then easier to regulate. Tarisa: ::Shakes head.:: Chief Lawliet brought his plan to me for ideas. Everything was solid, save for engineering issues that are beyond me. Chirakis: ::hums as she nods::: mimipavilion: ::pauses:: Apologies, since I'm more a doctor than an engineer or scientist, but how long would the AQS need to be off in order for this to work? Chirakis: He *does* have a wealth of knowledge beyond most of us. Tarisa: ::Nods in agreement.:: Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> Less a matter of being off, than being at a nice idle. mimipavilion: Ok how long do we need to idle it Chirakis: However, it seems strange to me that the crew of Ma'ev can be in the time fold but the Aegis team not be affected. But then...::she turns to Tarisa:: that is why I am not a scientist. Tarisa: ::Smiles, choosing wisely not to respond verbally.:: Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> But the control matrix develops as an AQS ages. Simply reverting it to a previous state by adding mass can cause that matrix to expand the singularities event edge, consuming the whole ship. Chirakis: ::chuckles:: Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> ::looks to lawliet:: Chirakis: It doesn't take a telepath to know what you are thinking. ::she moves on, still semi-smiling::: mimipavilion: ::is definitely out of her league and it kinda shows:: Chirakis: (often the simplest questions are the ones that the experts overlook, Doctor) mimipavilion: (yes indeed) Lawliet: ::looks back at Jorahl:: Is it possible? To stabilize the AQS? I don't care about the percentage. Tarisa: ::Tilts her head curiously as continues to monitor the console.:: Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> I can stabilize the system for 10 minutes, 15 if the resonators don't overload the matrix. Chirakis: ::stops to check the tactical readout and is satisfied that the corridors are clear:: Lawliet: ::nods:: It can work. It be tight...but it would work. Kallah Ramson: Do we have any other viable options besides this plan? Chirakis: ::and she is still puzzled, especially how the ship can be visible and its crew essentially invisible::: Lawliet: ::looks around the table as to offer anyone else who might have an idea:: Chirakis: ::the ship's structure vs the biological nature of the crew?:::: Kallah Ramson: ::looks around:: I see. Gila Orrak: :: Gila noticed Cayne was tense. He was out of his element on the technology, only able to offer big picture suggestions and just about that much understanding. :: Kallah Ramson: ::mimi:: doctor, with all the risks they've talked about i'm expecting a lot of the crew could suffer some form of temporal shock coming out of the loop. Kallah Ramson: ::over towards the security types:: and with the risk of the AQS exploding OR imploding we are going to have to evacuate the ship quickly. Gila Orrak: Cayne > :: He was getting worried the ensign studied him closely. She'd not likely guess who he was, but every time she looked him up and down he wondered if he was giving himself away :: Kallah Ramson: So we will be dealing with an injured and dazed crew who have to be moved with all due haste. can you come up with a plan for this? mimipavilion: ::thinks for a moment:: We'll need an emergency site-to-site transport of some kind. Kallah Ramson: ::nods:: Kallah Ramson: ::Lawliet:: how long to prepare the resonators? Gila Orrak: Cayne > We could do a multi beam out all at once, but the closer the ship is to Aegis the better. Lawliet: I'll need Engineering to produce approximately 78 resonators. Shouldn't take more than a few hours. Chirakis: 10:50 PM Kallah Ramson: Jorahl> send the plans to the shipyard and we'll begin replication. Lawliet: ::nods:: Doing so now. ::picks up his PADD and relays the information:: Gila Orrak: :: Gila heads out on Cayne's nod :: Kallah Ramson: Station engineering will work on increasing transporter capacity. But beaming the entire crew at once won't be possible. Kallah Ramson: Aegean and Apnex will have to stay clear because of their AQS systems but the Adriatic can assist. mimipavilion: True Captain, just remembered that we do have emergency tagging avaliable, will need to have medical and security to do that. Kallah Ramson: ::nods:: mimipavilion: Will get all tags ready and divide them up between personal. Kallah Ramson: Make those arrangements and have your crew and gear transferred to the Adriatic. mimipavilion: ::nods:: Kallah Ramson: Let's get this all together and be prepared to start the operation in 4 hours. Chirakis: ::stops to stare at the tactical board::: Chirakis: ::then her gaze shifts to the empty corridors, which triggers the thought that commerce is at a standstill::: Chirakis: 10:55 PM Kallah Ramson: Anything else? Gila Orrak: Cayne > This station can't beam them all at once? How many transporters do we have? Kallah Ramson: <while we haven't said, i'm figuring this is a D'Deridex class warbird. were talking a crew of over 1000> Chirakis: 10:58 PM Kallah Ramson: Not enough for a ship that size. We can press some civilian ships to aid as well as the task force ships. But speed will still be needed. Kallah Ramson: ::looks around:: okay then. let's get to work.

  12. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 20 October 2017 13 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.103 TBS is 2 days. The time is 1300 hours (1:00 PM) Aegis local. We suspect that the Romulan recon vessel, Ma’ev, is trapped in a temporal fold that is anchored to a malfunctioning AQS. If the crack in time contaminates a full powered AQS, the entire sector could fall into the loop. The team has left the Ma’ev to work on a solution. At sim begin, we will be meeting in the conference room to discuss our findings.

As a test of the ship's reality, the away team decides to move Ma'ev toward the defense grid, which registers it as a non-hostile "something". Is the away team's perspective is being distorted? Are they being mentally manipulated, stuck between realities, or both? Is the Ma'ev's crew out of phase?

Jylliene: % ::chuckles:: Scott Coleridge: $ OK, let's break this down. Chirakis: Another reason why I am an operative, and not a doctor. Lawliet: $ The best solution, I believe, is to revert everything back to a point before this fold occurred. Kallah Ramson: $ Jorahl> If the crack in time contaminates a full powered AQS, this hole sector could fall into the loop. Chirakis: 10:55 PM Scott Coleridge: $ The Ma'ev crew are trapped in a temporal fold anchored to the AQS. We can't eject the AQS, because that won't break the fold. We can't bring another AQS close to us because... yeah, that. Dacia Sandero: ::smiles:: Scott Coleridge: $ We need to collapse the fold, somehow, without killing the people inside. Chirakis: Science was never my forte. Fighting and killing, perhaps. Not science. Cdr Wyatt Cayne: $ If only I had something to add. They are delicate power sources.

Lawliet: $ ::looks off to the side:: .....a few months back I was working on a temporal-reversion application. The idea is to take something and revert it back in time to a point where it was more optimal. Chirakis: ::hanging her head, she sighs at Orrak's comment:: Tarisa: Returning to their ship and activating the process remotely would be the safest idea. Chirakis: And would it work? Dacia Sandero: I'm not familiar with now AQS systems work, but I imagine precautions pertinent to resetting our conventional warp cores would apply keeping a safe distance from the core. Kallah Ramson: $ Jorahl> Before we try anything too rash, perhaps we should remove ourselves from the equation. Chirakis: ::nods to Dacia::: Scott Coleridge: $ OK, if we're not in any immediate danger, here’s what I want to do. Subcommander, you return to the shipyard. Ponder this, maybe prepare a new AQS if possible. The rest of us will return to the station. Commander Lawliet, you work with engineering on your proposal.

  14. Mission Brief | Sky Harbor Aegis | 13 October 2017 11 April 2388 - Stardate 2388.101 TBS is 15 minutes. The time is 1200 hours (12:00 PM) Aegis local. While exploring the Romulan recon vessel, Ma’ev, the away team is startled by a blinding light near the computer core. Scanners show no light or light source, and the light casts no shadow. So far the team has not determined the cause of the light or the reason why the ship is crewless. The defense grid registers Ma’ev as a non-hostile "something." Strange things continue to happen on board.

Scott Coleridge: $ I'm not getting a coherent status reading from these consoles. It's as if the computer systems are affected by whatever is going on. Kallah Ramson: $ Jorahl> I could step forward and find myself standing on the lift that is really there.... or I could plummet to an unseemly death. Scott Coleridge: $ One minute I'm seeing massive system outages across the entire ship, the next the console is telling me everything is fine. mimipavilion: $Either one is possible.

Kallah Ramson: $ ACTION> As if some kid is playing with the lightswitch of reality, Jorahl's lift appears and disappears.... luckily he does not fall. Lawliet: $ What if....both conditions are true? What if we're caught in some phase shift? Dacia Sandero: ::nods:: Unlikely, but I wouldn't discount it entirely. Though I wouldn't be sure of what else is causing all this. Tarisa: ::Pauses.:: There is one more option... Kallah Ramson: $ Jorahl> Interesting. Dacia Sandero: Hmm? mimipavilion: $ I'd say. Chirakis: ::slow nod::: ...and that is? Tarisa: The presence of what we would consider an omnipotent being. Dacia Sandero: Yes, that's what I was thinking. What's Q up to these days? Tarisa: Like a Q for instance. Chirakis: An omnipotent being. Chirakis: A Q? Kallah Ramson: $ Jorahl> Come along Doctor. mimipavilion: $::follows Jorahl onto the lift:: I know that's on the visual recording. I hope. Chirakis: What... is a Q. Dacia Sandero: It would explain why we aren't able to detect it. Something like that could easily mask himself. Tarisa: ::Tilts her head curiously.:: Dacia Sandero: Hmm? An omnipotent race with god-like powers, that seemed to enjoy messing with Captain Picard and the Enterprise in particular Dacia Sandero: And Sisko.. until he punched him in the face Kallah Ramson: $ Jorahl> ::sends the lift to the bridge:: KelsaViegnor: ::swipes through the applications. Not many to choose from.

Scott Coleridge: $::Lawliet:: Have you managed to get anything from the logs? Tarisa: ::Nods.:: I am surprised a high ranking officer is not familiar with them.

Two, we are somehow stuck in between potential realities. ::turns back to Coleridge:: thoughts? Alexis McFarland: Mm, yes. You have to keep it up in the air for as long as you can.

Scott Coleridge: $ I'm not willing to entertain scuttling this ship until we're certain there aren't any crew left aboard.

We do not deal in Q on Aegis - which was probably not made clear at the beginning of your tours of duty, and... Chirakis: 2. The Borg are dead. Chirakis: Questions on that? Dacia Sandero: ahh Chirakis: Or comments, for that matter. Jylliene: Thank goodness? Lawliet: Why? Why don't we explore these issues? Dacia Sandero: Good to know Lawliet: They are good story elements Chirakis: Because those two issues go beyond what we want to deal with here. Lawliet: Ok Scott Coleridge: Good, because Scott never read the briefing on Q Kallah Ramson: We met the Metrons once. That was enough. Chirakis: Indeed. Chirakis: Captain, TBS? Scott Coleridge: I mean, he was going to get around to it. Some day. But it's propping up a table leg right now. Chirakis: I see. Dacia Sandero: Yeah, Dacia was getting around to it... maybe...probably...eventually? Kallah Ramson: A few minutes. 10 or 15, whatever math works best for our bookkeeping. Chirakis: Excellent. Comments from the crew? mimipavilion: (Mimi read it and chucked it out the airlock, it bored her) Chirakis: A comment from me - I certainly am stymied, which is good on your part, Captain.
