11:12 : RegajK2 : (( "Siohban and Taul plotted something involving K'Yele, and possibly Ilia." Where were you on that one, Jhu >:| ))
11:12 : Aelvna tVecj : ((She's with meeeeeee))
11:12 : tr eK ibilia : (( Baw chicka baw-baw. :D))
11:12 : ookamikuro : ((Thank you for standing in.))
11:12 : RegajK2 : ((thankyou karen. >:o ))

11:13 : Aelvna tVecj : tr'Spekt'or> ::hails the Hnoiyika from his scout ship::
11:13 : ::glances at Jhu in the flitter:: _Do_ you have anything on him?
11:14 : tr eK ibilia : ::looks over the fruits of her search so far::she had managed to get access to the senator's estate's systems after several long hours of rooting about and had finally found something useful::
11:14 : Telar trIsmail : ::in Main Security, briefing officers:: ... and in conclusion, do vahever is necessary to bring him in for interrogation. Remember, though ... this is NA a "wanted ... dead or alive" mission.
11:14 : Erein tLynta : ::fixed on something on her monitor....doesn't even notice at first the comm...or if there's even anyone else on the bridge to answer::
11:14 : ookamikuro : K> ::leaves the hydroponics bay, heading towards his office. He'll have a lot of political fallout to take care of as soon as Telar goes into motion, but thankfully it'll take his mind off his current dilemma::
11:14 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::Jhu sat silently in the transport as they left the manor's property, her gaze following the line of buildings as they moved through the city. At Ael's question, she glanced over.:: Of course. Everyone has a vice or a secret.
11:15 : tr eK ibilia : (( ::cue Ilia comming K'Yele and breaking down his delicate mental walls:: ))
11:15 : Aelvna tVecj : ::lolls her head back against the rest:: Ie, but usually they're _secret_. Or perhaps they never are, and we've just trained
11:15 : ourselves not to look.
11:15 : tr'Spekt'or> ::hails again, more insistently, on more channels, setting off at least one alarm::
11:15 : Telar trIsmail : He is to be brought in alive and as unharmed as possible. Regardless of vah he has done, he is a Khre'Riov and we must respect him for that. Ssuegn? ::looks from io side of the ranks of the officers to the other::
11:16 : tr eK ibilia : ::writes down a summary of her findings so far: The senator had taken two trusted, long-term servants with him when he disappeared--obviously not foul play::
11:16 : Telar trIsmail : Officers > ::grim mutterings amongst them:: Ssuaj-ha Rekkhai.
11:16 : Erein tLynta : :::absent mindely hits the button that normall y quiets alarms at her station...startles as it still goes off...looks around::
11:17 : Aelvna tVecj : ((heehee, t'Lynta))
11:17 : Erein tLynta : ::moves over to another station...::+COM+ This is the Hnoiyika
11:17 : Telar trIsmail : Very well ... dismissed and set out immediately.
11:17 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Secrets are a difficult burden to keep to oneself. Our dear Deihu confinded to the wrong person. ::She shrugged. It happened every day.:: I'm sure I'll be hearing from him soon. ::Her brown eyes lingered on Ael's face.::
11:17 : tr eK ibilia : Notes> The estate had recently purchased a long-range scout ship which could no longer be visually accounted for... which made the possibilities for destinations nearly endless.
11:17 : ookamikuro : K> ::enters the hwaveyiir just as t'Lynta picks up the comm, and pauses on his way to his office::
11:17 : Aelvna tVecj : ::sets jaw:: No doubt. But I wonder if I will be hearing from his son, first.
11:18 : ::rolls head in Jhu's direction to meet her eyes:: And I wonder, which is the better contact?
11:18 : How far will he go to please me?
11:18 : tr'Spekt'or> +Hnoiyika+ Permission to come aboard. This is an inspection.
11:19 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Probably. ::She smiled, amused by the thought.:: He certainly wasn't interested in me. If you pay him even the slightest attention, you will have a contact for quite some time. His interest will fade, of course. Males are like
11:19 : Telar trIsmail : ::heads to TL, steps in with t'Kirna and tr'Moussa:: Hwaveyiir. ::'lift zooms::
11:19 : ::'lift doors open, steps out, heads to Tac::
11:19 : JhuCaevra tTalia : that. But while it lasts, I'm sure you could gain quite a lot from him.
11:19 : Erein tLynta : ::looks around the bridge for anyone of higher rank to hand this over to::
11:19 : tr eK ibilia : Notes> As for the intelligence officer... his last verified location was aboard a transport ship, which had since reported a short-range scout ship missing.
11:20 : JhuCaevra tTalia : That has no bearing on the Deihu's compliance, however. He is not interested in his son's life or influenced by him. That much was certain.
11:20 : Erein tLynta : +COm+ Please standby while we confirm security authentication
11:21 : Aelvna tVecj : > +Hnoiyika+ Standing by. ::sends codes::
11:21 : ookamikuro : K> ::goes down into the command pit, leaning against his chair:: Was this scheduled?
11:21 : tr eK ibilia : Notes> Unless he was simply sitting powered-down in the middle of deserted space, the most likely location would be in a mid-sized asteroid field previously used for mining but since largely disused.
11:21 : Aelvna tVecj : True. Two for the price of one. But, tell me, Advocate...
11:21 : What do I actually want from him?
11:21 : Erein tLynta : ::pulls up a schedule:: Not that anyone told us about.
11:21 : Capt Kevin Acura joined the chat
11:22 : Aelvna tVecj : (Hola, Commander!)
11:22 : tr eK ibilia : ::frowns at the notes, frustrated by not having any better guesses as to where the senator could be hiding::of course, she had a gut feeling about it, but no evidence to speak of::
11:22 : Telar trIsmail : Security authentication of ... of vah?
11:22 : Capt Kevin Acura : (:::Waves:::)
11:22 : Erein tLynta : ::runs the codes::
11:22 : Aelvna tVecj : ((Want I should order them to bow and scrape? <g> Might be fun...))
11:23 : tr eK ibilia : ::appends a recommendation that they pursue the intelligence officer in the asteroid field under the assumption that he would be able to lead them to the senator, if the senator was not in fact already with him::
11:23 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Now that is an interesting question. I shall have to think on that for a while. Perhaps you should as well. There are things the Hnoiyika could gain from such an association.
11:23 : ookamikuro : K> +tr'Spek+ This is the Daise'Erei'Riov. May I ask what you're here to inspect?
11:23 : tr eK ibilia : ::sends these notes and the recommendation to K'Yele as a report::
11:23 : Aelvna tVecj : ::frowns at Jhu:: As long as I don't find myself being wed on the steps of the Imperial Palace.
11:24 : tr eK ibilia : ::leans back against the stiff back of her chair, staring down at the console, which still displayed the notes::tightens one eyebrow and stares::
11:24 : Aelvna tVecj : tr'Spekt'or> I'm from Customs, as you can see on my papers. I have to make sure there are no contaminants aboard, either cultural, biological, or military,
11:24 : before you're cleared for your next mission.
11:24 : tr eK ibilia : ((How about intellectual?))
11:25 : Aelvna tVecj : tr'Spekt'or> And we DO want you out of here, Daise'Erei'Riov.. ::looks at clipboard:: tr'Woodlock. ::sardonic smile::
11:26 : ookamikuro : K> +tr'Spek+ Certainly. Which areas of the ship do you plan to be inspecting, so we know where to receive you?
11:26 : Erein tLynta : ::ponders the biological...and wonders of Kyle's purpleness had totally faded::
11:26 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::Laughing.:: Somehow, I seriously doubt you would ever allow that to happen. ::Still smiling.:: I have to thank you for your help this evening. I'm sure I would have made headway with the Deihu, but it would have taken much
11:26 : longer to do so without offending him. He seemed impressed by you and your career.
11:27 : Telar trIsmail : ::looks at light on Tac console:: Just vah we need at this point ...
11:28 : Aelvna tVecj : tr'Spekt'or>+Hnoiyika+ Well, all of it. It's not a very large ship, now, is it?
11:28 : tr eK ibilia : ::very slowly sliding down in her seat, mostly imperceptibly, as she ruminates on her collected information::
11:29 : (( Oh, burn. ))
11:29 : Aelvna tVecj : ((::dies at t'Lynta::))
11:29 : JhuCaevra tTalia : (( Purple... everywhere? ))
11:29 : Aelvna tVecj : I was happy to serve as... a distraction. I learned a lot too. As much as I desired, to, I think.
11:30 : I may incorporate all of this into my dealings with the fleet, but... I may leave the actual work of it to you.
11:30 : Your talent with the words you do and don't use are as quick as mine with the kaleh.
11:30 : ookamikuro : K> ::silent for a moment:: +tr'Spek+ You're clear to dock in the aft shuttlebay. ::then he presses the button to cut the comm:: We need to be prepared to move the prisoners out of the brig as soon as possible.
11:31 : Aelvna tVecj : tr'Spekt'or> ::flies scout toward aft shuttlebay::
11:31 : Telar trIsmail : ::opens audio channel:: +unidentified craft+ This is the Hnoiyika. Identify au'rself. ::through clenched teeth, quietly::
11:31 : Aelvna tVecj : tr'Spekt'or> ::writes on ISD:: See how crew interacts without their Enarrain.
11:31 : tr eK ibilia : (( Are we letting him inspect Taul's closet? ))
11:31 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::She nodded slightly.:: This is only the first of such contacts. The actual building of the relationship takes much, much more time.
11:31 : RegajK2 : ((go for it.))
11:32 : ((if you've ever seen felix the cat..)
11:32 : tr eK ibilia : (( The laser-eyed ratabot army guarding it will be happy to treat you with the utmost respect as they sublimate your head? ))
11:32 : Telar trIsmail : Unidentified craft > +Telar+ This is Ilyas Qasim. We need to speak to ... to Erei'Riov Telar tr'Isma'il of the Hnoiyika.
11:33 : +Qasim+ ::blinks:: This is he. State au'r business and whence au come. ::tries to place name ... Qasim, Qasim ... ::
11:33 : Aelvna tVecj : ::fingers the hilt of her knife, idlely, as if being comforted:: Don't you find it exhausting?
11:33 : Erein tLynta : We could beam the prisoners into his own shuttle after he steps out. Would be the last place he'd look.
11:34 : Aelvna tVecj : ::contemplates:: Or invigorating?
11:34 : tr'Spekt'or> ::docks::opens hatch::
11:34 : Telar trIsmail : Qasim > +Telar+ I am here on ... family business for my brother Turhan. I must speak to au alone, Erei'Riov. Requesting clearance.
11:34 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::She sighed softly and leaned back in the seat as the flitter took them through the city.:: Both, in some way, but mostly exhausting. It takes quite a lot of effort, as you've seen. ::She frowned.:: And I usually don't get
11:35 : through an entire meal. A shame, seeing as how his food stores come from his personal -organic- farms.
11:36 : Telar trIsmail : ::sighs deeply:: Vah am I, a Grand Central operator or something ... +Qasim+ Au have five siurena in the main Scoutcraft bay. Clearance granted.
11:36 : ookamikuro : K> ::sweeps out of the hwaveyiir, moving quickly through the ship to the aft shuttlebay. The doors open, and he tries to look unfazed to see the inspector:: Jolan tru and aefvadh.
11:36 : Aelvna tVecj : Yes. I believe that was my greatest disappointment. I am still hungry.
11:36 : tr eK ibilia : ::looks up from her thoughts to glance at the report message, which hasn't yet been acknowledged::wonders what's going on, since the ship is still flying steady::
11:37 : Telar trIsmail : ::to t'Kirna and tr'Moussa:: With me. ::heads with them to the TL:: Main scoutcraft bay ... ::TL zooms::
11:37 : ::TL doors open::
11:37 : Qasim > ::docks in scoutcraft bay::
11:38 : Aelvna tVecj : tr'Spek> Greetings. ::bows deeply::
11:38 : Telar trIsmail : ::heads with t'Kirna and tr'Moussa to the craft::
11:39 : Aelvna tVecj : tr'Spek> I realize, of course, that as repairs are being made and your crew is planetside, I should not expect perfection.
11:39 : tr eK ibilia : ::flicks through the computer's logs of the last five siurenna curiously::raises an eyebrow at the arrival of an inspector::
11:39 : Aelvna tVecj : tr'Spek> I am simply here to avert disaster. ::polite smile::
11:39 : Telar trIsmail : ::scout craft doors open::
11:39 : Jolan ... tru ...
11:39 : ookamikuro : K> ::offers a marginally shallower bow:: I am certain what you see will be up to your standards. What do you need to see first?
11:40 : Telar trIsmail : Ilyas Qasim > ::steps out of craft, together with his sister Noor:: Jolan'tru Erei'Riov. ::indicating Noor:: My sister Noor. We are here on business. Au are perhaps acquainted with io El'Riov t'Arnal?
11:41 : I? I am afraid na.
11:41 : JhuCaevra tTalia left the chat.
11:41 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna, tr'Moussa > ::exchange "tr'uh-oh" glances::
11:42 : Laehval tTemarr joined the chat
11:42 : Telar trIsmail : Ilyas > ::looks at t'Kirna and tr'Moussa:: Would it be possible au are?
11:42 : Aelvna tVecj : ((omg it's a totally different person!))
11:42 : tr'Spek> Let's start with the engines.
11:42 : Laehval tTemarr : (( AIM is bugging on me. ))
11:42 : Aelvna tVecj : tr'Spek> ::opens tricorder::
11:42 : ookamikuro : K> All right, if you'll follow me to Engineering?
11:42 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > She is yy'a, I am afraid, Etre ... tr'Qasim.
11:43 : Ilyas, Noor > ::also exchange glances:: This is not good news ... I must report this to my brother. He know ... I mean, knew her. How did she die?
11:44 : Laehval tTemarr : Jhu'Caevra> Would you care to stop someplace and have dinner before we return to the ship? ::One brow lifted as she turned toward Ael. Was it an offer, a challenge, or simply a question?::
11:44 : Aelvna tVecj : tr'Spek> I am pleased you would do this tour yourself.
11:44 : tr'Spek> Who is your Daise'Engineer?
11:45 : I would. ::says without ornament:: The thought of going back to the replicator and the mess hall...
11:45 : After what we have seen. ::the last sentence laying a little blame on Jhu::
11:45 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna > By her own kaleh, Rekkhai. ::to Telar:: She was instrumental in giving us the information about that mad Khre'Riov, Rekkhai.
11:46 : Ah. So she knew she would die as an informant.
11:46 : t'Kirna > ::nods::
11:47 : Laehval tTemarr : Jhu'Caevra> ::She acknowledged no blame and rarely apologized. Instead, she just smiled and leaned forward to program a new destination into the flitter's control system.::
11:47 : ookamikuro : K> Taul, is his name. A former professor from Ra'tleihfi Theoretical Institute before he took a commission. He should be in Engineering now in fact. ::leads the inspector along::
11:48 : Telar trIsmail : ::turns to Ilyas and Noor:: Au must excuse us but we do na have any more time for conversation here. How did au get here? Au are na Rihannsu.
11:48 : Laehval tTemarr : Jhu'Caevra> We're still both dressed up, so perhaps someplace nice... though not too fancy. I dislike posh restaurants that are more interested in the look of the food than how much they give you.
11:48 : Telar trIsmail : Noor > We are El-Aurian, Rekkhai. We have peaceful dealings with many races.
11:48 : Aelvna tVecj : tr'Spek> Isn't that institute a little... fringe?
11:48 : RegajK2 : ((boo))
11:49 : Laehval tTemarr : (( Ni! ))
11:49 : Aelvna tVecj : ((Bite me, man of mystery <g>))
11:49 : Telar trIsmail : ::nods:: Understandable. But au must leave hna, I am afraid. Please forgive me but duty calls.
11:49 : Aelvna tVecj : I am in complete agreement, Advocate.
11:50 : Telar trIsmail : Ilyas > Thank you, Erei'Riov. You and your associates have been of great help. ::to Noor:: Come on, let's get going.
11:50 : ookamikuro : K> In what way, academically or politically? It all depends on who you listen to--in most circles, it's regarded as the most important theoretical physics university on ch'Rihan.
11:50 : Telar trIsmail : Noor > ::smiles:: It was fun crossing the Neutral Zone once again.
11:50 : Ilyas, Noor > ::enter shuttle::
11:51 : ACTION > Ilyas' shuttle departs.
11:51 : RegajK2 : ((snap))
11:51 : ookamikuro : K> ::considers perhaps the inspector deems theoretical physics, as a discipline, to be "fringe." Maybe seeing a planet blown up because of an arithmetic mistake would change his mind.::
11:51 : Laehval tTemarr : Jhu'Caevra> You never call me by my name. ::Looking out at the passing city, her face illuminated by the lights outside.::
11:52 : Aelvna tVecj : tr'Spek> And is theoretical physics important to your mission? ::asking with wide-eyed wonder, more than cynicism::the Hnoiyika is just a name on a list, and he is a
11:52 : small, small man::
11:53 : ookamikuro : K> You might be surprised how often theory turns to practice, in deep space. ::They enter Engineering!::
11:53 : RegajK2 : ::Taul was sitting back in a chair, his office chair brought out into the main engineering. Tapping into a padd, he entered a constantly encrypted equation.:: I think the social variables are more complex than. Visitors.
11:53 : Aelvna tVecj : ::furrows brow:: I suppose no matter where we go, we'll be recognized.
11:53 : Telar trIsmail : Security personnel > ::file into scout craft bay, begin taking positions in various craft, launching io by io::
11:53 : ookamikuro : S> ::is sitting atop Taul's console, leaning languidly backward and chatting with him. She blinks curiously toward the entrants.::
11:54 : Telar trIsmail : ::watching the various scout crafts launching:: And so it begins ...
11:54 : Aelvna tVecj : tr'Spek> ::takes it in:: Remarkably clean. But these modifications.. ::flips the ISD screen to some blueprints:: What do they do?
11:54 : Telar trIsmail : ::turns to t'Kirna and tr'Moussa:: We launch last.
11:54 : Laehval tTemarr : If the the person, the rank, at least. Your uniform will get us a private room in several places I know. But then, so will my smile.
11:54 : Aelvna tVecj : tr'Spek> ::looking first at the equipment, doesn't even notice the human at first, because he can't process that one would be there::
11:55 : RegajK2 : ::A Ratabot walks past the Inspector as Taul says:: They enhance the ship's systems to no longer be so -utterly- mundane.
11:55 : Telar trIsmail : Nveid, I seem to have come across that family name before. Can au place it? Lloann'na database somewhere?
11:55 : ookamikuro : K> ::was seriously expecting Siobhan to be safely hidden away in the ductwork, as she always seems to be when he comes here. The fact that she isn't could have spelled awkwardness, but the inspector seems thankfully vacant::
11:56 : Aelvna tVecj : ::laughs:: So which do we use?
11:56 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > ::ponders:: I can almost think of ... Areinnye who *is* that brother they mentioned? ::looks at t'Kirna::
11:56 : Aelvna tVecj : tr'Spek> ::attention returns to Taul when he speaks:: And... what is that? Is she a...modification?
11:57 : tr'Spek> ::wonders if it's a robot::
11:57 : tr'Spek> ::ignores the ratabots, as he saw some with glowing eyes on the Khellian just last week::
11:57 : ((3 minute warning!))
11:57 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna > Turhan? ::shrugs and snorts:: The *Kheinsa* of the ... Dhey'str'om. ::pronounces name with difficulty::
11:57 : RegajK2 : ((heh))
11:57 : ookamikuro : S> ::raises an eyebrow:: And what are you? A tourist?
11:58 : S> ::Universal translator unnecessary--she says that in fluent Rihannsu::
11:58 : Telar trIsmail : ::shakes head:: Lloann'na ... needing a therapist to hold au'r hand. ::turns:: How did he come to know t'Arnal?
11:58 : tr'Moussa > They are El-Aurian, Rekkhai. Well-traveled I suppose.
11:58 : Aelvna tVecj : tr'Spek> ::smiles and bows deeply:: In a manner of speaking, ie.
11:59 : Telar trIsmail : ::raises brow:: ::snorts:: "Kheinsa" ...
11:59 : Aelvna tVecj : ((I'm totally calling it Dheystrom from now on))
11:59 : RegajK2 : ::Taul said:: That's my assistant, ::saying that amused him, for some reason:: She's Sio. Pleasant, no?
11:59 : Laehval tTemarr : Jhu'Caevra> They'll see the uniform first. It is hard to hide, unless you prefer to remove it. ::She let that drift off into silence, still peering out the window.::
12:00 : Sunday, September 17, 2006
12:00 : Telar trIsmail : ::looks at scout craft:: All right hna, our turn. ::gets in last craft with t'Kirna and tr'Moussa::
12:00 : ookamikuro : K> Actually, he is a customs inspector, here to make sure that we're in good shape to go back out on mission. And I'm sure you've had the ship repaired well enough for that.
12:00 : Telar trIsmail : ACTION > Telar launches the last craft after the other Security personnel
12:01 : ookamikuro : S> ::rolls her eyes at the assistant comment, hopping off Taul's console and walking to her own:: We'll talk more about your calculations later, Taul.
12:01 : Telar trIsmail : ::q:: Khre'Riov tr'Asputin, here we come.
12:02 : Aelvna tVecj : tr'Spek> And to make sure there aren't any biological or CULTURAL contaminants. We are all Rihannsu here, aren't we, men?

11:43 : Telar trIsmail : They learned that this was just "Phase Io" of a much larger campaign. Exactly what "Phase Re" might be and if it is followed by anything more is unknown.

11:59 : Telar trIsmail : As usual ...
12:00 : Sunday, October 29, 2006
12:00 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Are there any other alternatives to releasing him to his ship? I dislike the fact that he may have a chance to escape his fate...
12:00 : ookamikuro : K> Well, at the least it would explain how the murders were done so tactically. -- still, you seem a bit... young, to be working with the Praetor's own intelligence service.

11:35 : Aelvna tVecj : incidents were found to be rooted within the galae... ::gestures at Telar and the newsfeeds::
11:35 : Lonely Fedora : #E> An entire division of Klingon Warriors had been setting up an invasion force there...
11:35 : Aelvna tVecj : 47 invitations to dinner. Ie, I have accepted one.
11:35 : Lonely Fedora : #E> they find you, blades only. Battle lasts a -month-. Three people left alive, and none of them Klingon..
11:36 : Aelvna tVecj : From... an old friend.
11:36 : Lonely Fedora : #E> Some of their elite were on that planet. So, how'd you do it?
11:36 : Aelvna tVecj : ::smirks:: Perhaps there will be talk of forming a galae union.
11:36 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::Jhu smiled slightly at Ael's tone.:: Personal visit or business?
11:36 : Telar trIsmail : Security flunky > ::exits TL, heads into Main Security, hands ISD to t'Kirna::
11:37 : ookamikuro : # K> I'm surprised even you know I was one of them. My involvement wasn't just supposed to be classified, it was supposedly purged. ::He shrugs slightly:: Well, as the name suggests, the battle centered on the bridge.
11:38 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna > ::takes ISD, nods, passes it to tr'Moussa::
11:38 : Aelvna tVecj : ::crosses her arms:: If there is business to be conducted, it is minimal and thinly decorated. I have nothing to ask of Enarrain t'Lahra. And if she has
11:38 : something to ask of me... I cannot imagine what I could possibly provide.
11:39 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > ::nods, dismisses Flunky:: This is going to be intense work ...
11:39 : Aelvna tVecj : Given that I am at half-crew and our spoils from the outer planets have all been sold. ::smiles::
11:39 : ookamikuro : # K> Aidillen Three is volcanic, the "bridge" was really just an arch of stone some ten meters wide over a lava flow, surrounded by mountains. They needed to get past us to regroup with the rest of their force.
11:40 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna > Au aren't kidding. ::sighs:: "Investigate the Enarrain's staff and ensure na io is going to assassinate *our* Enarrain." Vah are the homeworlds coming to, Nveid?
11:40 : ookamikuro : # K> We weren't facing the entire force on the planet, only about three thousand in total. If they'd had communications with the rest of their group, we would have been pinned and routed.

11:42 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Perhaps she only wants to renew old friendships? ::One brow arched, she leaned on the console.::
11:42 : ookamikuro : # K> But instead, we had the positional advantage. Holding a narrow bridge is much easier than crossing one that's being held.
11:42 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna > ::likewise working at terminal, occasionally throwing tr'Moussa a ravishing smile::
11:43 : ookamikuro : # K> We also had the only fresh water supply on our side. They pushed us back into the pass at one point, about a week into the fighting, but we raided the camp the following night and drove them back to the other side.
11:44 : Aelvna tVecj : ::tilts head and gazes at Jhu:: Are you interested in finding out?
11:45 : JhuCaevra tTalia : I would not decline a dinner invitation, especially if it might lead to some type of political connection, but if you would rather meet with her alone... I would understand. ::She smiled again, knowingly.::
11:46 : ookamikuro : # K> By the time some twenty-six days had passed, back and forth, battering against our side and losing more and more of their men to heat exhaustion and thirst,
11:46 : Telar trIsmail : ::going over Tactical monitor, awaiting some reply from Security::
11:46 : ookamikuro : they made the decision to make a final charge at gaining the bridge.
11:47 : Aelvna tVecj : I cannot promise insightful political conversation, but I believe you and she would both have something to gain from the experience.
11:48 : ookamikuro : # K> By then, we were down to some sixty men, and the Klingons still had just over one thousand. We'd been losing numbers to attrition too, and if they'd been at full strength during this last charge we would have broken.
11:48 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Then it would be my honor to attend with you, if only as a casual observer. Perhaps I might see or sense something to help you.

11:49 : Aelvna tVecj : ::her lips quirk into an almost-smile:: Perhaps you will.
11:50 : We will leave in three hours. Assuming Security clears the Leaf's crew.
11:50 : ookamikuro : # K> When the last charge was over, five of us were left standing. Two died of their wounds within an hour.
11:50 : # K> Ironically, had there been any materials to build ranged weapons--bows, spears, anything that could travel a hundred meters or so to the other side of the chasm--
11:51 : then we would have lost by the first day. There was nothing on our side to grant cover anywhere within thirty meters of the bridge, and we had the lower ground.
11:51 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > ::uploads data to Telar's console::
11:51 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::She glanced over to Telar, then back to Ael and nodded.:: I shall be in my quarters until then, preparing, and will meet you in the transporter room at the appointed time.
11:51 : ookamikuro : # K> The Elements smiled on us. --on me and the two others who survived, at the least.
11:51 : Telar trIsmail : Security reports the crew is clear, Ihhei.

11:53 : Aelvna tVecj : ::inclines head to Jhu::
11:53 : Lonely Fedora : #E> I didn't ask how you.. your group did it. ::pausing in her steps to glance at him:: I asked how you did it.
11:54 : ookamikuro : # K> I don't understand your meaning. ::he stops as well:: We fought as a group. Alone, I would not have survived.

11:56 : Aelvna tVecj : ((3 minute warning!))
11:57 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::By preparing she meant, of course, researching the ship for anything she might be able to use as ammunition. She smiled to Ael and turned for the lift, heading down to her quarters.::
11:57 : ookamikuro : # K> Actually, those were among the contacts recently "retired" by the Crimson King...
11:58 : Telar trIsmail : ::shakes head, wondering how come those two manage to have all the fun::
11:58 : Lonely Fedora : #E> ::A blink:: Wow, ::She remarked:: Hope you don't need them now, huh? ::then she started walking again:: I'm not finding anything suggesting anyone's been here in months.
11:59 : Aelvna tVecj : ((yeah, that's not creepy at all, Jhu))

11:21 : Aensai>::Leaving his quarters he hurried for said transporter room, wondering what was going on::

11:22 : RegajK2 : ((what were we doin?))
11:22 : ookamikuro : ((Storytelling.))
11:22 : Telar trIsmail : (( doors clothes? ... oh boy what would a Kheinsa make out of that? ;) ))
11:22 : ookamikuro : ((Which is over now.))
11:23 : Aelvna tVecj : ((Um.))
11:23 : ((Your storyline is over!? ::rechecks the log::))
11:23 : ((Did everyone die?))
11:23 : ookamikuro : ((No, no.))

11:24 : ::enters the transporter room::
11:24 : ookamikuro : ((Nah, backstory flashback.))
11:24 : Aelvna tVecj : ((Aha))
11:24 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>::Enters the transporter room a few minutes later. He tilts his head curiosly:: Sir, should I bring my big gun?
11:25 : Aelvna tVecj : ::shakes head:: We're going to another galae ship. Just a pistol should do. ::smiles slightly::
11:25 : ookamikuro : K> ::glances down a cross corridor:: He'll be somewhere deep in the base, within the asteroid, to mask his biosignature. The deeper we get, the better chance we'll detect him ourselves.
11:25 : Telar trIsmail : +t'Kirna, tr'Moussa+ Find out as much information on Enarrain t'Lahra of the RES ... Leaf. ::pronounces name as though it were a profanity:: We need as much as possible. Quickly.
11:26 : RegajK2 : ((there was something at the very end of the sim..))
11:26 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna, tr'Moussa > ::exchange glances::
11:26 : tr'Moussa +Telar+ On it Rekkhai.
11:26 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>Ie Rekkhai ::checks his hand disrupter for a moment quickly, which he never goes without::
11:27 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna > Vah in the Elements' name do au suppose he wants?
11:27 : Aelvna tVecj : We are going on a tour of the RES Leaf. Enarrain t'Lahra is the commanding officer. She was a friend of my father's, before his death.
11:27 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > ::shrugs:: I have na idea but we will have to find something. Vahever it is ...
11:28 : t'Kirna > Etrehh, search all log references for Enarrain t'Lahra. As far back as possible.
11:29 : Etrehh > Working.
11:29 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>I am unfamiliar with this vessel Rekkhai but I shall take that to mind
11:29 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna > ::looks up:: Hna comes the fun part. Waiting ...
11:29 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>::Meaning he will lesson the Romulan typical paranoia down by one notch and not regret not bringing his big gun::
11:29 : Aelvna tVecj : ::nod:: I am sure everything will go fine, but it never hurts to have someone to watch my back.
11:30 : RegajK2 : E> Very well ::lifting up her rifle and stepping on:: What's it like?
11:30 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>Understood Rekkhai
11:30 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > ::watches as data is being processed::
11:30 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>::Inwardly thinks, shame it was not Rehanna's [sp?] rather sexy back that needed watching ;-)::
11:31 : ookamikuro : K> ::continues down the corridors, peering at his multicorder as it uses its scanners to build a map of the station bit-by-bit as they walk:: What is what like?
11:31 : Aelvna tVecj : ::nods to the transporter uhlan::

11:31 : Aelvna tVecj : ACTION::Aensai and Ael shimmer to the RES Leaf's transporter room one::
11:32 : ::Enarrain t'Lahra is there to greet them::
11:33 : Telar trIsmail : ACTION: t'Kirna and tr'Moussa now have quite a stack of ISDs to sort through, all on t'Lahra, evidently a very busy person.
11:33 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> ::steps forward:: Aefvadh aboard, Enarrain t'Vecj. ::turns to Aensai:: And you look... familiar. ::slightly startled::
11:34 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna > ::q:: And the Daise said, "Quickly ..." Nveid, we're never going to get this done!
11:34 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>::Stands at attention but is watchful. In the words of the voyager EMH, "paranoia is a way of life for you":: I do? Pleaseforgive me but I do not believe we have met before Rekkhai?
11:34 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> ::inclines head:: Then it is an honor to meet you. I have heard many heroic tales about your ship.
11:34 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > Oh but we will. ::sits and begins going through an ISD::
11:34 : Aelvna tVecj : ::to Aensai:: Introduce yourself, Arrain.

11:35 : [its been some time. I hope I spelled that right ;-)]
11:35 : Aelvna tVecj : ((Heehee. Damn the webpage being down, we can't go look it up!))
11:36 : t'Lahra> Ah. Ie, you come from a good House.
11:36 : ookamikuro : ((tr'Khnialmnae.))
11:36 : Aelvna tVecj : ::folds arms:: Better than mine, at least.
11:36 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna > ::dutifully picks up an ISD and begins analyzing contents::

11:37 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>I am honoured ::inclines his head respectfully::
11:37 : [And that is why I like the name "Khev" ;-)]
11:38 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> Aefvadh to the Leaf. We spend most of our time on diplomatic missions. Not the diplomatic side. Providing security.
11:39 : Telar trIsmail : +t'Kirna, tr'Moussa+ How is it proceeding down there?
11:40 : ookamikuro : K> Blunt, aren't you. I am not in my prime, no--and ie, we are on the bridge. But in this, I think we may be the Klingons, with our enemy poised where I was those decades ago. And that strikes fear in my heart.
11:40 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > +Telar+ We are analyzing the information from the etrehh Rekkhai.
11:40 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> Let us start in the weapons room.
11:40 : t'Lahra> ::leads Ael and Aensai out of the TR and into a corridor::
11:41 : Telar trIsmail : +tr'Moussa+ Mnekha. But understand, time is of the essence. Proceed apace. ::cuts comm::
11:41 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> We have the latest in weapons detection. For instance, Arrain, I know that your hand disruptor is at full charge and ready to be fired.
11:41 : t'Lahra> And Enarrain t'Vecj, old friend, I know what is in your boot. If you were carrying any poisons, I would know that too.
11:41 : t'Lahra> You'd be amazed at what people try to get away with on missions of peace.
11:41 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > +Telar+ Ie Re ... ::realizes comm is cut:: Well. ::hmphs and goes back to ISD::
11:42 : RegajK2 : E> I see, ::she said:: Would you want it back? I mean, if you could.. Would you take your youth back?
11:42 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>::blinks:: Yes, as a precaution Rekkhai. It is my duty....::on mentioning what the Enarrain carries he blinks:: But how...?
11:42 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna > Do na worry, Nveid, he has a job to do, and he was left in charge of the hwaveyiir.
11:42 : tr'Moussa > I know, I know. I just wish I could have acknowledged his order, is all.
11:43 : t'Kirna > ::q:: Business before pleasure, Nveid, always.
11:43 : ookamikuro : K> ::He gives a dry chuckle:: That depends what you mean. Would I like my body to be young again? Would I like my mind to be as sharp, my eyes as focused, my joints as limber? Of course.
11:43 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> I have an implant in my ear, and scanning is being done from the bridge. It's very unobtrusive.
11:43 : t'Lahra> And the transporter data. ::smiles:: So if you wanted to be very resourceful,
11:43 : ookamikuro : K> Or if you mean, would I want to be the same person I was, then... Not in the least. I found no peace, then. No peace.
11:43 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> you would have to find something on the Leaf.
11:44 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > Au are a wench. ::eyes light up:: After we're done here ...
11:44 : t'Kirna > ::nods and smiles:: But of course.
11:44 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>::Has this look in his eyes that says, I want one of these for Christmas:: That is very impressive Rekkhai. This is standard warbird equipment?
11:45 : Aensai>Or something new?
11:46 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> It was all installed less than three months ago. When we returned to ch'Rihan.
11:46 : t'Lahra> And we haven't left orbit since. ::sighs:: That is what I wanted to talk to you about, Enarrain...
11:46 : ::nods:: I gathered. Please call me Ael.
11:47 : t'Lahra> Ael. ::leads them through a nondescript doorway and into an armory, and beyond it, a shielded computer bank with marines::: Here is the weapons hub.
11:48 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>::Is thinking, how can they get something like this for the hnoiyika. His eyes widen just marginaly at the weapons hub. Like most of his age and gender, as was big cards on Earth, now it is big guns and cloaking devices::
11:48 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna > Mmmmmm ... ::looks up at tr'Moussa:: She seems to be very resourceful with technology, na?
11:48 : RegajK2 : E> ::a glance at him, she stepped along beside him:: Why, though? Don't you want to die? I don't mean that how it sounds, but... Aren't you ready?"
11:49 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> Touch anything you want Arrain. I trust you're an expert.
11:49 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > Ie, and connections. ::eyes narrow:: I do na wish to see a conspiracy everywhere, but ...
11:50 : t'Kirna > ::puts ISD down:: ... but ... ? But vah?
11:50 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>::briefly for a moment wonders why she is being so nice and if that console is set to explode on his touch but like a moth to a flame he cannot resist:: I am grateful Rekkhai
11:50 : ookamikuro : K> I have made my peace with the Elements, and I am prepared to go if it is my time. But I will not willingly give my life up. I have unfinished business, I have a crew and a commander to protect.
11:51 : RegajK2 : E> Unfinished business? I must say, I'm skeptical -you- could leave -any- business unsettled... what remains?
11:51 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > But some of this does not add up. ::taps ISD::
11:52 : Aelvna tVecj : Tell me what you like best, Aensai, and we can get it for the Hnoiyika... ::mutters:: In a million years.
11:52 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>::As he studies the console his primary thought is, I must get me one of these:: Ie Rekkhai
11:53 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna > ::looks at his ISD:: Au're right, of course. ::straightens up:: Let's get these to the Daise, fast.
11:53 : Aelvna tVecj : We have consoles, Aensai.
11:53 : t'Lahra> ::chuckles:: Not like that one.
11:53 : Lt Tebok trKhev : [Oddly has the song "cows with guns" running through head]
11:54 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > ::nods and begins gathering up ISDs while t'Kirna gathers up the rest::
11:54 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>Definately not Rekkhai. If I may ask how did you get all of this Rekkhai?
11:54 : Aensai>::Briefly wonders if he can bribe daddy into getting him what he wants::
11:54 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa, t'Kirna > ::head to 'lift, enter::
11:55 : t'Kirna > Hwaveyiir, damn it!! ::'lift zoooooooooms::
11:55 : ::'lift doors open, t'Kirna, tr'Moussa dash out onto hwaveyiir::
11:56 : tr'Moussa > Rekkhai! Ta krenn! ::almost stumbles on his way::
11:56 : ::heads to t'Kirna and tr'Moussa:: Easy there. Vah have au got?
11:56 : ookamikuro : K> ::simply repeats:: A crew and a commander to protect. That's not business that can be finished in the same way my former business could be.
11:56 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> Officially, we're simply the prototype for this kind of diplomatic honor guard.
11:56 : Unofficially?
11:56 : ((2 minute warning!))
11:56 : RegajK2 : E> And what of your duty to the Empire?
11:57 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> Unofficially... I have to wonder who is spying on who.
11:57 : Lt Tebok trKhev : ::Meanwhile on Earth, a Romulan sneezes as people admire the technology he helped develope before his exile::
11:57 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna > ::somewhat breathless:: Information, Rekkhai. That Enarrain, hrrau the other ship ...
11:58 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> If we had not been on our current drydock status, perhaps we could have detected an operation like tr'Asputin's before it got to the level that it did.
11:58 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>::Blinks and studies the equipment even closer, thinking maybe she means that there is spying equipment built into the weapons::
11:58 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > Just too many coincidences, Rekkhai, for her to be ... ::exchanges glances with t'Kirna:: ...

11:31 : Aelvna tVecj : ::nods to Aensai:: If you unscrew anything... don't let them see you.
11:33 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa. I want au and t'Kirna to coordinate compiling a comprehensive database regarding this Enarrain t'Lahra. We're getting some significant information but ... ::taps ISD:: there are also significant gaps in it.
11:33 : tr'Moussa > On it Rekkhai.
11:33 : Aelvna tVecj : ::to t'Lahra:: I believe what you're really asking is... was I recruited? Do you really think being the Enarrain in the badlands is some kind of cover?
11:33 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::Jhu sat patiently at one of the servers filled her glass with some exotic blend. Lightly, she lifted the glass to take a sip, appreciating the flavor as many others did not. She knew swill when she drank it.::

11:35 : JhuCaevra tTalia : They are both deceased. ::Turning her gaze back to t'Lahra.:: You are blessed to have yours still living, I think. Some seem to be luckier than others.

11:37 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> So they sell it to the military instead. Often to impress the rare visiting alien.
11:38 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Well, it is very pleasing. ::Taking another small sip. She settled it on the table and placed her hands in her lap, her gaze shifting from t'Lahra to Ael and back again.:: So, might I ask how you know our illustrious Enarrain?
11:38 : Have you two been friends long?
11:38 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna > ::looking over ISD:: A lot of connections ... very well placed I might say.

11:40 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna > Well I think the Daise will be pleased to know that at least some of the gaps are going to be filled to an extent.
11:40 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> And now the Senate is proposing more "watchers." The Advocates, and then maybe the press. They feel the Tal Shiar has infiltrated too far, and has become a
11:40 : threat, rather than security.

11:44 : ::is lying, but to admit the strength of her relationship with the Advocate might reveal too much::
11:44 : ::to whom, and why, she doesn't know yet. But it is a matter of trust::
11:44 : Though I suppose she can speak for herself.
11:44 : ::takes her own, first sip of wine::
11:44 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::Jhu smiled a slow, calculating smile at t'Lahra and glanced briefly to Ael.:: And, of course, what is happening at that particular moment. I'm sure you can read most people. What is your opinion? ::Peering back at t'Lahra.::

11:47 : Lt Tebok trKhev : tr'Khnialmnea>::He noticed someone watching him and nodded briefly, inclining his head::
11:47 : Aelvna tVecj : I sense you are afraid of the cold. To use a metaphor. And I wonder if your loyalty lies with the first person to give you a blanket, or if you will
11:47 : take control of all of ch'Rihan's furnaces and matches to make sure it never happens again.
11:47 : Lt Tebok trKhev : [You know for the life of me I cannot recall my rank. I do remember it was either the Starfleet equivalent of a Lt, with the two gold pips, I think]
11:48 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::Deciding that t'Lahra would probably give her the truth rather than a polite, meaningless answer, she gazed intently at the woman, listening to what she had to say. One eyebrow arched slightly at the answer.::
11:48 : Aelvna tVecj : I suspect you try very hard to make us think one or the other, depending on the, as you say, particular moment. Does it matter if you are
11:48 : more than what you project?
11:49 : ((Erm. That would be t'Lahra))
11:49 : Telar trIsmail : ::heads to console, prepares message on secure channel, double-checks, transmits it::
11:50 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> The more interesting question is why Enarrain t'Vecj brought you to dinner at all. You are dressed ten times better, and have ten times the presence.
11:50 : t'Lahra> So... tell me, Advocate. What is meant by your distraction?
11:50 : ((Hee. Let me look it up))
11:50 : Telar trIsmail : ::heads back to main desk and returns to piles of ISDs, also contributing to database construction::
11:51 : Aelvna tVecj : ((Yes, Lieutenant. Arrain Aensai T'Liss i-Ra'tleihfi tr'Khnialmnae. Though Telar's rank is wrong on the site))

11:52 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::Jhu smiled broadly at t'Lahra and leaned forward slightly.:: I'm pretty to look at. The Enarrain was afraid she would find you dull and need to find some other form of distraction to occupy her to survive the dinner. ::She
11:53 : glance again to Ael, wondering if she would pay later for the jest.:: As it is, I find you more interesting than she claimed you to be and do not find this evening to be a burden at all.
11:53 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>Yes, I would like to take a look, see how thinks have been improved. They cannot upgrade all vessels at once
11:55 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> ::laughs, though it is more of a non-answer than she was expecting:: We must not fall into the trap of equating dull with stupid, however. Her mind is working.
11:55 : t'Sark> The warbirds are much larger than your vessel, and can hold the equipment.

11:22 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> ::to Jhu:: You have not name-dropped all evening. Are you sure you know who you work for?
11:24 : Ael> If you begin to regale us, I will leave. I'm the Enarrain of a patrol ship.
11:24 : t'Lahra> And you have a reputation to uphold.
11:24 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Of course. Do you? ::Both delicate brows rose as she turned her attention from her meal to t'Lahra.:: I came as a distraction, not necessarily to impress anyone. You do not seem the type to be easily impressed by the Senate,

11:25 : Aelvna tVecj : ((stomach bulging?))

11:29 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::Jhu lifted her glass yet again for another sip of that excellent vintage and glanced between the two women. The newcomer's voice drew her attention and she turned her head slightly to study the arrival.::
11:30 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> This is a personal dinner, Daise'Erei'Riov. We have those, sometimes, even aboard the Leaf. ::stands:: Though, now that you are here...

11:32 : ookamikuro : tr'Llaidre> ::The well-practiced smile cracks just a bit as t'Lahra puts a minor emphasis on his rank:: Well, if it is a personal dinner, then I simply must make the
11:32 : acquaintance of your friends. May I? ::He is already on his way to a chair as he speaks, though.::
11:32 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> May I present my first officer, Daise'Erei'Riov tr'Llaidre. My guests, let me say your company has improved tremendously.
11:33 : t'Lahra> ::light-hearted, used to mollifying::
11:34 : t'Lahra> This is Enarrain Ael t'Vecj of the Hnoiyika. An old friend. And Advocate Jhu'Caevra t'Talia, who... is aboard the Hnoiyika with her.
11:34 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::Curiosity slightly elevated by t'Lahra's tone, she gave the Daise'Erei'Riov another look, watching him as he took a seat. She wondered at the tension between the two officers. Nevertheless, she offered the same, polite smile.::
11:36 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> We were discussing... well, nothing of consequence. ::chuckles:: Though I was hoping to get to know the Advocate a little more.
11:36 : t'Lahra> The Enarrain, I know all too well.
11:36 : ookamikuro : tr'Llaidre> ::widens his eyes as he looks toward Jhu'Caevra:: Oh, this is the Advocate, whom we've all heard so much about? It is my honor to meet you, and you, Enarrain.
11:36 : Any friends of House Lahra are friends of House Llaidre. But please, do not let me interrupt the conversation, then.
11:36 : Aelvna tVecj : Ael> ::has suddenly found her soup very interesting::reminded of her Senate dinner with Jhu::the invitations were reversed, but the result, the same::
11:38 : JhuCaevra tTalia : We were discussing the fine food and drink, but that conversation seems to have run its course. Perhaps you should provide us with a new topic, tr'Llaidre? ::Cutting her gaze sidelong at him as she took another sip of wine.::
11:40 : ookamikuro : tr'Llaidre> Well, perhaps you could tell us more about how you came to become an Advocate, then, and how you came to work on a patrol ship?
11:41 : Even one with as illustrious a career as Enarrain t'Vecj's Hnoiyika. ::the last added almost hastily::
11:41 : Aelvna tVecj : Ael> ::rolls eyes and glances at t'Lahra::
11:41 : t'Lahra> We've all been wondering that. ::smiles at Jhu like she is a prize mouse among cats::
11:43 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Surely there are better things that could be discussed than my position. ::She flashed them both a slight smile.:: I've only just finished telling the Enarrain how much I dislike Senators that do nothing but babble about themselves
11:43 : and you ask me to do the same. ::Another sly glance at tr'Llaidre.::
11:45 : RegajK2 : (( rar))
11:46 : Aelvna tVecj : ((Great. Now I'm too hungry to sim. <g>))
11:46 : RegajK2 : ((heh))
11:46 : ookamikuro : tr'Llaidre> That is our perogative to ask of you, being that it is our ship. ::a bit of emphasis leaks onto the "our" there:: It is a dreadful host but a lively guest who talks
11:46 : only of herself. ::As he pours himself a glass of the Enarrain's vintage, he asks:: Would you like more wine?
11:46 : RegajK2 : ((baklava cheese cake))
11:47 : Aelvna tVecj : Ael> Actually, Daise'Erei'Riov, we were discussing politics. Fashionable among certain friends, certainly verboten at a dinner party.
11:47 : Ael> ::has finished soup, and had to come up with something to do with her mouth::
11:48 : Ael> Do you think having more Senate involvement in the day-to-day operations of a vessel will help reverse the balance of power the Tal Shiar have been enjoying?
11:48 : Ael> As someone who holds both a family crest and a military position on a ship that serves diplomatic ends, this must be something you
11:48 : Ael> think about a lot.
11:48 : JhuCaevra tTalia : I would love some. ::Moving her glass closer to him. She'd had quite a bit already, but was no where near her personal limit. While she waited, she tilted her head slightly toward Ael, listening.::
11:48 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> ::decides not to even give him a dirty look about the wine::
11:49 : ookamikuro : tr'Llaidre> ::cheerfully:: Nonsense! You are aboard a diplomatic vessel, politics are nearly all we discuss over dinner. ::he pours for Jhu'Caevra as he formulates an answer to the question::
11:49 : I do believe that more Senate involvement will help establish transparency among starship operations, which will allow the government to root out corrupt influences.
11:50 : Aelvna tVecj : ((Someone has been reading up on corporate-speak!))
11:50 : ookamikuro : I have to question the value of allowing press onboard a ship, however. What value could they serve, to offset the danger of classified material being accidentally or intentionally compromised?
11:51 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahra> I suppose it's all about who you trust, is it not? ::sips wine::
11:52 : JhuCaevra tTalia : What of negating some of the Tal Shiar's power, then? Are you in favor of the Senate's move to reduce their sway over the Galae? Do you not fear the repercussions? ::To t'Llaidre as she reclaimed her glass.::
11:52 : ookamikuro : tr'Llaidre> Indeed. And should I trust the Senate? Or should I trust a rag like the Ra'tleihfi Star Journal? You should see some of the horrid trash they print about my House and family.
11:53 : Aelvna tVecj : Ael> ::has never been featured in such a paper, but knows Jhu has:;
11:54 : ookamikuro : tr'Llaidre> The Tal Shiar serve a very useful purpose, ensuring that no one disloyal or outright treasonous has power over the military. Before the time of the Empire, there
11:54 : were too many military coups for us not to learn that lesson.
11:54 : JhuCaevra tTalia : (( Are we talking about those flyers with the escorts printed on them? Because she was young and needed the money. ))
11:54 : ookamikuro : tr'Llaidre> But they are a body of the Empire, meant to check the military. If they gain so much power they are a danger to the Empire itself, who is served?
11:55 : tr'Llaidre> It is, of course, a balancing act--giving them just enough jurisdiction and power, but not too much. And I fear that the scale is tipping in that direction, and leading
11:55 : to the cancer of corruption.
11:56 : JhuCaevra tTalia : I would agree with you on that point. The checks and balances have become unbalanced and must be regained, else we experience more of those coups. I, personally, am not in favor of the press. ::To tr'Llaidre.:: Until they, too,
11:56 : are properly handled with their own system of balances, nothing they print can be considered truth.
11:57 : ookamikuro : tr'Llaidre> ::gives a smile that's quite possibly genuine, at that:: I could not have said it better myself. ::he raises his glass to Jhu, then takes a sip::
11:58 : Aelvna tVecj : Ael> ::to tr'Llaidre:: I agree completely. An unstable Empire is an unhappy one. Whatever the cause of the instability.
11:58 : ((Put in your last words, people!))
11:59 : ookamikuro : tr'Llaidre> Besides, the Tal Shiar are becoming sloppy. Why, when I was a boy, most people still thought they were a myth. Now, they're becoming so enmeshed with politics
11:59 : that they're daily conversation! A silent watchdog is much more effective than one who barks, wouldn't you agree?
12:00 : Sunday, January 7, 2007
12:00 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::She nodded with a slight smile, making a mental note to delve into tr'Llaidre's background at a later date to review his family's house and his connections. And she still wondered at the relationship between him and his

11:31 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Engineering> They try and keep us away from the diplomats and stuff... If there's a problem on the ship, it makes the entire Empire look bad.

11:36 : tr'Moussa, t'Kirna > ::salute, rise and head off towards quarters to ... well, get a room and all ...:: ;)
11:36 : ookamikuro : ACTION> The object appears to be an irregularly-shaped, pitted iron-nickel asteroid. Given its volume, however, its density is off by a fraction of a percent. Deeper scans

11:36 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>::He tugged down on the bottom of his uniform jacket, striaghted and forced pride into his position, making it seem more then it was:: I am Arrain Aensai-T'Liss ir-Ra'tliehfi tr'Khnialmnea, Ennarain's h'fai

11:38 : Telar trIsmail : +Ael+ Ihhei we have the data au have requested. It is na ... how shall I put it ... pleasing. And very interesting. Preparing transmission for au over a secure channel whenever au wish.
11:38 : tr eK ibilia : ::frowns at the asteroid:: I hate margin of error.... ::readies the shuttle's weapon banks::

11:40 : t'Eng> Because surely you don't want _your_ Enarrain spied upon.
11:40 : ookamikuro : ACTION> The iron-nickel coating of the asteroid melts and vaporizes in a shower of molten globs! Beneath, there is another object, much more regular, approximately one
11:40 : meter long. It's also apparently shielded, because it is undamaged.
11:41 : tr eK ibilia : ::blinks extensively and quickly calibrates the scanners with frequency modulators to try and punch through the object's shielding::
11:42 : Telar trIsmail : +Ael+ Ie Ihhei. Uplink established. ::sends info over to Ael about t'Lahra that is, well, basically so damaging it would have made impeaching GW Bush easy by comparison::

11:42 : tr eK ibilia : ::as the scanners shift through their frequencies, makes a note in her log, in case it turns out to be a trap::
11:43 : ookamikuro : ACTION> Scans now give a more complete picture. No warp drive is evident in the device, only weak gravitic thrusters. Its course does not change after the weapons bombardment.
11:43 : tr eK ibilia : ::bites a corner of her lip and watches the readouts::
11:43 : ookamikuro : ACTION> It has enough dilithium to moderate a hefty amount of matter/antimatter reactants. Far more than a device of its size would need to power itself.
11:44 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Eng> Ah... Maybe you're right. I never thought of it that way.
11:45 : +Telar+ ::texts back:: Find out where the money goes.

11:46 : Telar trIsmail : ::goes to replicator, fetches some tea, heads back to desk in Main Security, begins poring over ISDs and database for the tiniest chink in the armor, so to speak::
11:47 : ookamikuro : ACTION> The device is still floating around the various microgravities of the asteroid field, and its motion is unpredictable because of the subtle influence of the gravitic thruster, but
11:47 : tr eK ibilia : ::tilts her head slightly, realizing it may be a self-destruct system... then sighs at the realization::
11:47 : ookamikuro : it appears to be heading in the general direction of the asteroid base Ilia had recently left.
11:48 : Telar trIsmail : +tr'Cryll+ Maec, report here immediately. I have urgent need of au.
11:48 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Eng> I suppose we're all used to it at our age. Does she make others?
11:48 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Cryll > +Telar+ On me way Rekkhai. ::heads to Main Security double-quick::
11:49 : ::sips while waiting and looking at ISD ... frowns and ponders::
11:50 : tr'Cryll > ::arrives in very timely fashion at Main Security desk, salutes:: Rekkhai. Au called?
11:50 : tr eK ibilia : ::bites her upper lip this time, and attempts to modulate the transporters to reach through the device's shielding, on the same frequency as the scanner::
11:50 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>I am her h'fai. She makes me do many things . . . . It makes one look forward to getting a command of ones own
11:51 : Telar trIsmail : ::looks up:: Ie, that I did, Maec. Au are the expert in matters such as these. ::hands him a couple of ISDs:: We have a ... money problem. We need a thorough trace on this ... person.
11:51 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Eng> So that you may command your own h'fai? ::smiles::
11:51 : tr eK ibilia : ::targets the device's drive system::
11:52 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Cryll > ::looks ISDs over, purses lips, nods:: Ah, ie, Rekkhai, so I see. Do na worry, I'll put me talents on hunting this ... ::shakes head:: lady's financial connections down right fast.
11:53 : ookamikuro : ACTION> A pair of eyes appear on a screen at Ilia's console. Just eyes--the rest of the face is hidden. A garbled and modulated voice asks:
11:53 : # Eyes> Are you sure you want to do that?
11:53 : Telar trIsmail : Mnekha.
11:53 : tr eK ibilia : ::stares at the eyes::
11:53 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>But of course! And have larger quarters. And the most comfortable chair on the bridge ::smiles::

11:54 : ::smiles:: I need it yesterday, Maec. Hop to.
11:55 : tr'Cryll > ::laughs:: Rawght! Au'll have the info as soon as I can get it. ::salutes::
11:55 : ookamikuro : # Eyes> Well certainly you've seen the holos. If you find a bomb, you don't just cut the red wire. What if I rigged it to explode if its drive system is removed? You see how much
11:55 : Telar trIsmail : ::returns salute:: Off au go ...
11:55 : ookamikuro : reactant mass is there. It could annihilate an eighth of this field.
11:55 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>Do you hope to have a ship of your own?
11:55 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Cryll > ::nods and heads for his office::
11:56 : tr eK ibilia : So... what would you suggest?
11:56 : ::not very impressed by the run-around of information she already knows::
11:57 : ookamikuro : # Eyes> Your craft is warp-capable. Why, you could probably be halfway back to your ship before it even reaches its destination.
11:57 : Telar trIsmail : ::sips and discovers the tea is ... cold. Finishes it in a gulp and heads to replicator for some new tea::
11:57 : tr eK ibilia : I suppose you're right and I could just put a gravity well in its path to reorient it out into space and hope it hits a star's corona...
11:57 : Aelvna tVecj : ((2 minute warning!))
11:57 : t'Eng> No. I merely hope not to get killed.
11:57 : Telar trIsmail : ::makes mental note to upgrade some of the replicating systems as soon as Ael is back::
11:58 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>Why so certain you will die? Your duties are to run the ::gestures towards the cameras and such:: You must see a lot....
11:58 : ookamikuro : # Eyes> And hope it doesn't reorient itself in time. Of course, who knows, I may just be bluffing. Do you play cards, miss?
11:59 : tr eK ibilia : No reason to eradicate an asteroid field, after all.. ::turns away from the eyes, putting her hands to the controls as smoothly as possible, trying to maintain her strong front::
11:59 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Cryll > ::busies himself in office, going through etrehh records and digging for as much info as possible, deeper than io would think::
11:59 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Aensai>It is all very impressive.
11:59 : tr eK ibilia : No, thank you. ::begins tapping in controls, locking a tractor beam onto a nearby massive asteroid::
11:59 : Telar trIsmail : ::fetches another cup of tea, heads back to main Security desk, sits::

11:30 : JhuCaevra tTalia : (( to share: ))
11:31 : ookamikuro : ACTION> The asteroid attempts more and more to correct its course, but its gravitic thruster is only so powerful. It's getting further off-track.

11:32 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lahre> Our more exciting role is to host conferences. Mostly for the galae or the Senate. We do not deal with aliens.

11:53 : tr eK ibilia : (( You were the one taking advantage of a drunk woman who had just puked on you? So much better! ))
11:53 : JhuCaevra tTalia : (( LOL ))
11:53 : Telar trIsmail : I am afraid we have some very unpleasant news for au, Enarrain t'Lahra. Au are under arrest for trafficking illegally in the Empire.
11:53 : tr eK ibilia : (( ::kills Jhu:: ))
11:53 : Aelvna tVecj : ((Holy crap! <g>))
11:54 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Why ever na? ::Having long ago abandoned any pretense at eating or drinking.:: Au are in a very special position of power on a very unique ship. That, to me, is fascinating.

ookamikuro: K> Ah. Difficult to do in the bramble patch that is Eisn system politics. I'm afraid you might
be in for even more politics after this, though, having authorized the arrest of a diplomat.
Telar trIsmail: ::holds up hand:: That prisoner there was a danger to us. Lesser people would na have handled it as well
and perhaps some would have been seriously injured or killed. This was flawless.
ookamikuro: K> At least it was one of ours, so she can't claim diplomatic immunity.
Telar trIsmail: ::smiles:: I am quite proud of au all.
StrmsCalm: Technically she's still a galae officer.
StrmsCalm: Though she, most of all, has tried to forget.
tr eK ibilia: (( Delete, delete! ))
StrmsCalm: ((That is going to get annoying))
ookamikuro: K> Indeed. What of her second in command? Have you found anything on him?
Telar trIsmail: ::to t'Kirna:: Au will be officer of the day here. The rest of au .. resume duties as usual. ::rises and heads

StrmsCalm: Grant them leave, Telar. Who knows how long we will be at ch'Rihan?
StrmsCalm: I assume you will want to do all the press interviews yourself.
Telar trIsmail: I will do my best Ihhei.
ookamikuro: K> ::takes his seat again:: I haven't read a great deal about this case, I'm still catching up
on reports, but from what I do know tr'Llaidre and t'Lahra were not on good terms. He resented her for
her position.
ookamikuro: K> I have a feeling it's no coincidence that evidence implicating her was easy to find, and
evidence implicating him is elusive.
Telar trIsmail: ::heads to Tactical and assumes station::
StrmsCalm: At least you only had to look at the paperwork, Telar. I have spent days with her. ::thinks
back:: Decades.
Telar trIsmail: It must feel uncomfortable to say the least for this to have to happen, Ihhei.
StrmsCalm: ::sits back down, finally, and folds her hands in her lap:: It makes me feel angry. Beyond that, I
cannot quite grasp.
StrmsCalm: We must not let tr'Llaidre leave our sight, then, lest he prove to be as elusive as his crimes.
ookamikuro: K> He doesn't seem the type who would just run, ihhei. Too worried about how it would
reflect on his House.
StrmsCalm: ::chuckles:: People actually worry about that sort of thing these days?
StrmsCalm: Think of what this arrest will do to t'Lahra's estate...
ookamikuro: K> From all I've read, he's an aristocrat as much as he is an officer. Even if he were to be
arrested for this, he probably has friends in high enough places to get him an honorable discharge and
a year's probation.
ookamikuro: K> A luxury I doubt Enarrain t'Lahra's House can afford.
StrmsCalm: Maybe this will help us... if the galae insists on a more militaristic presence on the Leaf, to
StrmsCalm: further diplomatic indulgences...
StrmsCalm: ::is pained by that, but reasons:: I suppose she does not deserve that luxury. Telar, any idea
what may have motivated her?
ookamikuro: K> If you'd like, ihhei, I can make some calls... Plant a seed of doubt about tr'Llaidre's
involvement in this affair, perhaps prevent him from being promoted in his commander's place.
StrmsCalm: Will that not...cause trouble for us?
Telar trIsmail: Maybe she simply came across io item as a gift ... and greed took over. We would have to interrogate
StrmsCalm: I would encourage her to give a full confession voluntarily... maybe she knows something
about the others on her ship. Though she and tr'Llaidre were adversarial in our meetings.
ookamikuro: K> I doubt it would cause trouble, ihhei. Not if they are simply rumors. Of course we would
never officially spread such information.
Telar trIsmail: ::nods:: Perhaps she would cooperate. We will do our best.
StrmsCalm: ::dislikes the unknowing of it all::
StrmsCalm: I have full faith, Telar.
ookamikuro: K> It's quite possible she knows something about her Daise'Erei'Riov's involvement, you
could use that as leverage. Let her know that he's fully willing to throw her to the dogs. ::nods to Telar::
Telar trIsmail: I agree. ::smiles:: I will tell her just that.
Telar trIsmail: Then we will see whose fvai eats whose.
StrmsCalm: ::glances from wolf to wolf:: All well and good, unless...she doesn't know anything.
ookamikuro: K> I hope for her sake that isn't the case, ihhei. She'll have to be turned over to the JAG's
office soon enough.
StrmsCalm: ((2 minute warning!))
StrmsCalm: Ie. I don't owe her anything.
Telar trIsmail: ::q:: Who needs a JAG when the airlock is *so* much faster and efficient ...
StrmsCalm: Unfortunately, someone would notice the chief diplomatic Enarrain vanishing. Unlike, say, one
of us vanishing.
ookamikuro: K> ::wryly toward Telar:: But I could put in a transfer order to the Tal Shiar for you if you and
your methods would fit in better, tr'Isma'il.
Telar trIsmail: Elements forbid, Rekkhai. Na after vah they did to my family.
ookamikuro: K> ::shakes his head:: A joke, perhaps a poor one. ::standing, he turns to Ael:: By your

Telar trIsmail: ::nods:: Mnekha. ::to t'Kirna and tr'Moussa:: Au re are
dismissed until later.
Telar trIsmail: t'Kirna, tr'Moussa > ::salute and leave::
ookamikuro: tr'Llaidre&gt; Hm. Not something I typically discuss over
dinner, but perhaps the ale has loosened my lips. t'Lahra and I have never
had a quite... Cordial relationship. She resents my placement as her second
in command.
Telar trIsmail: This way Ihhei.
Telar trIsmail: ::leads way to Security office::
JhuCaevra tTalia: Because of aur family status or something more personal?
Forgive me, I do na mean to pry... ::Total lie:: ..but I was curious. She
seems pleasant enough in mixed company, but presents subtle barbs at au when
au are around.
strmscalm: ::follows slowly::
ookamikuro: K&gt; ::follows along behind them toward the security office::
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; ::more comfortable with just Telar and the
well-appointed XO::
ookamikuro: tr'Llaidre&gt; I doubt it is anything personal, as we never met
before I was stationed here. She accuses me of using my family connections to
get ahead in the Galae, merely because I happen to have made
ookamikuro: Daise'Erei'Riov fifteen years before she did.
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; Does... Does Ael know what has happened?
Telar trIsmail: Ie Ihhei, she is aware that au have been taken here to the
br'tehh for interrogation.
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; ::nods::
JhuCaevra tTalia: Ah, I see. ::She took a small sip of her drink, ignoring
the various officers about them as if they did not exist at all.:: But I do
na understand why that would upset her. Many use connections of family to
elevate themselves.
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; I assume that... you report to her. ::snorts:: As
tr'Llaidre reports to me.
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; But I would prefer my confession to not be so
Telar trIsmail: ::gestures to seats:: Fhaen be seated Ihhei ... Rekkhai.
::entering the Security office::
ookamikuro: K&gt; I do report to her, ihhei, but I doubt at all like
tr'Llaidre reports to you...
ookamikuro: tr'Llaidre&gt; Jealousy, perhaps. House Lahra does not have
many such connections, certainly fewer than House Llaidre.
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; ::thin smile::
strmscalm: ((I totally thought K said the next line, and I was like,
Telar trIsmail: ::goes to replicator, comes back with tea for the three of
them, serves::

going to tell us ... everything?

strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; If you have taken the ship, you may find them
yourselves. But I can certainly make the crew more...
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; Cooperative.
JhuCaevra tTalia: In aur opinion, does she do a fair job at commanding the
Leaf, or do au think au could do better? ::She ignored the server as her
plate was taken away and her glass refilled, too intent on tr'Llaidre.::
Telar trIsmail: Indeed. ::inclines head, looks at K'Yele::
ookamikuro: tr'Llaidre&gt; ::chuckles, taking a sip of ale as his own
glass is refilled:: That is a dangerous question to be asked by someone
directly representing the Senate, Advocate.
Telar trIsmail: More cooperative. ::muses on that::
ookamikuro: K&gt; ::nods slightly:: Well, please start from the
beginning. Was the art scheme initially your idea, or your second in
JhuCaevra tTalia: ::She smiled broadly, crossing her legs as she leaned back
in her chair.:: Perhaps, but the Senate is not interested in individuals, but
rather the efficiency of the fleet as a whole. If one portion is lacking, a
change would be

you more interested in where all that art is now?
JhuCaevra tTalia: made. Perhaps they can na force the Galae to do exactly
what they wish, but they can put certain restrictions into place that make it
difficult for the Galae to function if they do na cooperate.
ookamikuro: K&gt; Quite interested, ihhei, but all in good time. Your
idea, or his?
Telar trIsmail: ::recording the session and making copious notes on an ISD
all the while::
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; caught. Trying to sell something he'd
swiped. Stupid, stupid man. Petty stuff.
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; Was going to bring down the Leaf with the scandal.
::shakes head::
Telar trIsmail: And this was when?
ookamikuro: tr'Llaidre&gt; And I suppose this would be a perfect time to
curry favor with the Senate, hm? Well, I'm sorry to disappoint you, Advocate,
but t'Lahra--despite our disagreements--is a skilled commander. ::he doesn't
ookamikuro: sound too genuine--even nervous, maybe::
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; Oh, the survellience footage of that little thievery
is still in the records. About 20 years ago.
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; Say what you will about his "House," he needed the
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; The aristocracy died long before we were born.
Telar trIsmail: That long ago? And was nothing done to put a stop to this?
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; Before you?
ookamikuro: K&gt; I hate to ask, ihhei, but... Are you certain you have
the surveillance footage in your records? When was the last time you
JhuCaevra tTalia: Na disappointment. I only wanted aur opinion on the woman
as her second-in-command. Au deal with her more than anyone, I suspect.
::Tilting her head slightly, she eyed him, gauging her next question.:: Au
say au are loyal to her,
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; Oh, there are many copies. But it doesn't really
matter. Footage can be faked. Cloned. It's not the footage that counts.
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; Except for the endless public newsfeeds, of course.
JhuCaevra tTalia: despite her dislike of au, or aur family. I find that an
admirable quality.
Telar trIsmail: Then what does count?
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; It's the physical artifacts. Our culture. ch'Rihan's
treasures. All gone.
ookamikuro: tr'Llaidre&gt; The days of aristocracy may be coming to an
end, Advocate, but I feel aristocratic values still have a place in this
ookamikuro: K&gt; Ihhei, forgive me for taking a plebeian view of the
situation, but aren't you more concerned for your own future?
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; Subcommander... tr'Llaidre is on my ship, and yet, I
have remained the Enarrain, and unblemished, until now.
Telar trIsmail: ::glances at K'Yele:: We have to get to tr'Laidre before he
can make any moves.
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; Either I am strong enough for that, and I will be
fine, or I have been his scapegoat all along, and it will not matter.
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; Either way, my knowledge is yours, to use as you see
Telar trIsmail: ::nods:: And au have been of valuable service Ihhei.
ookamikuro: K&gt; And Enarrain t'Vecj will be relieved to hear it. I
hope, for your sake, that tr'Llaidre is still as clumsy as he once was.
ookamikuro: K&gt; ::stands:: tr'Isma'il, please continue taking down as
much information as you can. I'm going to report to the Enarrain.
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; He has been lulled by 20 years of having someone take
care of him.
JhuCaevra tTalia: ::She smiled slightly.:: Ie. A viewpoint mostly held by
those of the aristocracy. Do au think she would ever betray au? ::Deciding
to see how far he was willing to be pushed.::
Telar trIsmail: Ie Rekkhai, I shall.
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; ::smiles at Telar:: Ah, ie. Let us discuss the many
nooks and crannies...

the hwaveyiir::
ookamikuro: tr'Llaidre&gt; Betray me, Advocate? Exactly how do you mean?
::A bit of that nervousness returns::
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; Of course, most of the records are off-ship...but in
many of the food replicators installed in quarters, there
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; are microchips.
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; Video, data, and of course, the books recording
transport and payment and item.
strmscalm: ((1 minute warning!))
Telar trIsmail: ::jotting down info:: Ingenious ...
strmscalm: t'Lahra&gt; Perhaps measurey ou could implement.
JhuCaevra tTalia: Do au think she would destroy aur career to elevate
herself? There are some commanding officers in the Galae that will stop at
nothing to hold and keep their ships. The Senate has met some... resistance
in the past.
Telar trIsmail: Any good ideas to improve security, ie ...
ookamikuro: K&gt; ::enters the hwaveyiir:: Well, she has decided to
cooperate. I fear it won't be enough, though.

11:32 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::She smiled.:: Then au have na had a proper tour. I'm sure it is paltry compared to what au are accustomed to on the Leaf, but au may be interested to see how the majority of the Galae operates.

11:40 : JhuCaevra tTalia : A few years now, though it sometimes seems longer. The Enarrain did na exactly welcome me aboard when I was first assigned, but I struggled through as best I could. ::She took his arm as they walked for the lift, smiling at him.::

11:41 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Cryll > Excellent!
11:41 : JhuCaevra tTalia : I can na blame her reaction, however. Few commanding officers would welcome what they would consider to be a spy of the Senate on board. But if I were na openly assigned, the Senate would have chosen more... subtle... means.
11:41 : Telar trIsmail : But I am na sure ... na quite sure ... if that confession was truly genuine.

11:46 : JhuCaevra tTalia : assigned to your ship, but held back some of the reports to the Senate. Na everything needs to be sent along, afterall. Some things can be... incriminating. Taken out of context, au know.
11:46 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Cryll > ::exits::
11:47 : Aelvna tVecj : Though I expect he will be making his appearance sooner, rather than later. We should be prepared.
11:47 : K Dogger : ::bows to Ael once again and withdraws to the TL to return to the Hnoiyika and her office/closet::
11:48 : ookamikuro : tr'Llaidre> Certainly, some reports do need the proper context to be fully understood. I hope only that our own Advocate understands this as well as you seem to.

11:54 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Enjoy it? ::She paused, her fingers running over one of the currently unmanned consoles. Brown gaze shifted to those on duty, staring until they turned back to their business.:: I would na exactly phrase it in that manner.

11:35 : ookamikuro : Doctor> Just another hour or two, rekkhai. ::she tries to maintain a professional demeanor despite her desire to laugh at the helpless patient. This is a possibly, even probably, terminal condition...
11:35 : But there's a measure of satisfaction in watching him knocked low.::
11:36 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::Sending the files she wished to review further to her newly occupied quarters, Jhu logged off the console and rose from her seat.::

11:38 : ookamikuro : tr'Llaidre> Could this be intentional, doctor? Poisoning?
11:39 : Doctor> I doubt it, rekkhai. I've never heard of tritium being used as a poisoning agent. It's too unstable to be very useful unless it's used immediately after it's synthesized, and it's slow-acting.
11:40 : If someone wanted to poison you, they could have used a different agent which would kill more quickly and leave less trace.
11:40 : Aelvna tVecj : ::turns her attention to Telar:: I have Aensai looking for cultural information. A broadcast, a report... I would rather not go blindly there, though I have been

11:43 : ookamikuro : tr'Llaidre> Well, don't just stand there, proceed with your tests! I don't want to be trapped in this horrible place any longer than I need to be.
11:43 : Telar trIsmail : And we shall see that there are as few as possible Ihhei.

11:45 : ookamikuro : Doctor> ::frowns slightly:: Rekkhai, I'm not sure you understand the... severity of your condition. Your blood vessels have taken body-wide, microscopic cellular damage. Your internal organs are shutting down.
11:45 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::Stepping out once the lift stopped, she headed for the medical bay, enjoying the subtle decorating details in the corridor. She was about to ask a nurse for tr'Llaidre's location, but his loud exclamations
11:45 : made that unnecessary.::

11:46 : Aelvna tVecj : I am glad to see that decadence has not made you soft, Erei'Riov. Let us hope the servants in your quarters
11:46 : ookamikuro : It's quite possible you won't leave this bay again for the rest of your life. Even if you do, if you manage to survive, you're likely to develop several cancers, and they may not all be curable.

11:47 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::Pausing behind the doctor, she frowned at the diagnosis, still oblivious to the intentional poisoning. She suspected, however.::

11:48 : Telar trIsmail : Security is currently monitoring all frequencies from our friends out there so we'll know when something is arriving over subspace.
11:50 : Aelvna tVecj : I wonder if they even know about subspace...
11:51 : JhuCaevra tTalia : I am certain the Enarrain has already sent a request for such. ::She knew nothing of the sort, but was a very good liar. Stepping forward, she paused at his bedside, peering down at him.::

11:51 : JhuCaevra tTalia : I came to see how au were doing and to make certain that au are getting the care au deserve. ::She glanced briefly to the doctor, arching one eyebrow.::

11:56 : JhuCaevra tTalia : I came to inquire about the health of tr'Llaidre and make certain he was getting the care he deserved. ::One brow arched as she paused at his bedside.::

11:57 : S'Nac > Monitoring. The Daise assigned a few of us to make sure we catch incoming frequencies.
11:57 : ookamikuro : Doctor> I wasn't aware his condition was public knowledge yet. Were you with him when he began showing symptoms?

11:59 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Na. But information travels fast, even on a ship this size. ::Smoothly to the doctor.:: I believe the Enarrain would be most interested in aur findings.

12:00 : Telar trIsmail : S'Nac > Sure is more ... mmmm ... splendiferous than Hnoiyika. But I want to get back there.
12:00 : JhuCaevra tTalia : She has a personal interest in the health of tr'Llaidre, I am certain.

11:25 : above the rank of Erei'Riov... The benefactor would be someone not from my ship. Which widens the potential suspects to the entirety of the Empire.

11:26 : Aelvna tVecj : (Ha!)

11:35 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Ie. That is a disturbing thought. ::Jhu was by no means disturbed. She was slightly irritated that someone would poison him without informing her, but she was not surprised because she still lacked any sort of real power.::

11:37 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Is there anything I can do for au while au are in the medical bay? Some small matter that should be seen to in aur absence or private affairs to be put in order? ::She touched his hand briefly, very attentive.::
11:37 : Lt Tebok trKhev : Of course ::says that is if that was the most obvious thing, how could it be any other way?::

11:50 : ookamikuro : # Arbiter> I agree. My people are nonviolent, Enarrain, and even if they were not it seems unlikely one technologically inferior planet could pose a direct threat to your people. But perhaps you mean an indirect one?

11:51 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Captain Joshua Mallory> We are extremely excited for your technological developments and wish to aid you however we can as we have done for countless other worlds.

11:52 : ookamikuro : # Arbiter> ::to Mallory:: This also seems unlikely, as the direct benefits to your investment would be unlikely to outweigh the costs. But again, perhaps you seek an indirect benefit.
11:52 : Aelvna tVecj : # We must accommodate, in one fashion or another, this development. As you must, learning you are trapped between two Empires.

11:58 : ookamikuro : # only in learning of us, you are most interested in preserving your own political safety along your Neutral Zone. We are not offended by this. But we recognize it gives us leverage, and thus is the point of these negotiations.

11:22 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > A full moonround to a moonround and a half, Rekkhai. Her system must have been hit very hard by this.

11:43 : Telar trIsmail : I was informed that, instead of t'Kirna being released to duty within a couple of weeks' time to maybe thi weeks' time, it would be more like a full moonround or a moonround and a half of rest.

11:47 : t'Lohan > Rekkhai?
11:47 : JhuCaevra tTalia : # Captain Joshua Mallory> Sometimes it is necessary, but most of those in the Federation care not for war. There are some exceptions, of course, but they tend to keep it internal.
11:47 : Telar trIsmail : Ie?
11:48 : Aelvna tVecj : ::thin smile:: That sounds familiar.
11:48 : JhuCaevra tTalia : # Captain Joshua Mallory> It would be interesting to visit ch'Rihan at some point. What say you? Think it would be allowed? ::Another teasing smile.::
11:48 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > But Rekkhai, I'm an Engineering officer, na a Security io.
11:48 : JhuCaevra tTalia : # Captain Joshua Mallory> I'm sure you would be most welcome on Earth.
11:49 : Telar trIsmail : ::smiles, reaches for desk, picks up ISD, hands it to her:: Na any longer. Read this. Au are deputized for Security duty for as long as it takes, and I intend to make this transfer formal when the Enarrain returns.

11:23 : ookamikuro : ((Heh, I figured.))

12:00 : ookamikuro : ((BTW--of course you all realize that when mysterious aliens say "you must not go into these ruins" it means, plot-wise, that the protagonists absolutely must?))
12:00 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Captain Joshua Mallory> ::Nodding in response to Pah's comments.::
12:00 : Aelvna tVecj : ::bows to Alien #2::Thank you. Good evening.
12:01 : Erein tLynta : So the open scientific community and the sharing of collected data in the Federation is a myth
12:01 : JhuCaevra tTalia : (( We'll end up there by accident, I'm sure. ;-) ))
12:02 : T'Vara> Not at all. But the disclosure of Federation technology to non-allies is not permitted without authorization.

11:36 : Erein tLynta : I noticed that. I think it might have something to do with a caustic substrata layer that looks like evidence of a series of comet impacts in the planets past.

11:34 : ookamikuro : ACTION> The capsule-train begins speeding off--well, it doesn't really feel that speedy, just a constant fraction of a G acceleration.
11:34 : Aelvna tVecj : Given your subterrainian existence, what made you develop warp?
11:35 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Captain Joshua Mallory> Do the majority of your people live within your cities or are there large groups that choose to live in smaller settlements?
11:36 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > All right. Over here we have the chart showing how a boarding party on another ship positions itself ... and plants the enhanced datachips in the Security camera systems.
11:36 : ookamikuro : Guide> We all long to explore space, of course, Enarrain. We have sent probes and several manned expeditions to our moons and the other worlds in our star system, so it was only a matter of time before
11:36 : we turned our sights out farther.
11:36 : Telar trIsmail : ::nods:: I see ... and these chips have special holoimaging systems in them?
11:37 : t'Lohan > Correct. Hna ... here is how we manipulate from remote. ::steps to console::
11:37 : ookamikuro : Guide> The majority of our people live in small settlements like the one you saw. They are small enough and spaced widely enough that they can be self-sustaining and have little impact on the local environment.
11:37 : Aelvna tVecj : ::thin smile::And did you expect to find us?
11:38 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > First ... the enemy ship leaves the vicinity.
11:38 : ookamikuro : Guide> We had expected to find aliens. The Drrhhh'aaak ::wiggle sway:: equation suggested that it was a near certainty intelligent life existed elsewhere in the universe.
11:38 : Telar trIsmail : ::nods as chart shows simulation in progress::
11:39 : Aelvna tVecj : Intriguing.
11:39 : ookamikuro : Guide> We had expected you to be... Purpler, though.
11:39 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Captain Joshua Mallory> ::He chuckled lightly at their guide's reply.::

11:42 : ::nods:: Ingenious. And hna they think they're all right when ... ?
11:42 : Aelvna tVecj : Is the power about to go out? ::grows concerned::
11:42 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::Standing in the transport, he held on to the rails or whatever and glanced to the lights.::
11:42 : ookamikuro : Guide> We are approximately halfway to our destination. When we reach the halfway point we will begin decelerating, so please brace yourselves for a slight shift in forces. ::seconds later, the
11:43 : fractional-G acceleration turns to a fractional-G deceleration, smoothly enough that it's not uncomfortable.:: It is our understanding that most of the development in your worlds is above-ground?
11:43 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > ::nods, turns to face Telar:: Ie. Exactly. They believe all is well when in reality we can beam someio on board and their Security cameras won't detect him or her. ::turns back and pushes another button::
11:43 : Aelvna tVecj : Ie. At least, in our worlds, we use the ground only for mining.
11:43 : Telar trIsmail : ::watches as simulated away team is beamed on board enemy ship::
11:44 : Incredible.
11:44 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Captain Joshua Mallory> On many of the Federation worlds it is the same, though several have subterranean settlements.
11:44 : Aelvna tVecj : ((Like Atlantis?))
11:44 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Captain Joshua Mallory> Are all of your cities and settlements underground?
11:45 : ookamikuro : Guide> Forgive me if my questions seem naive. It is just difficult to imagine above-ground cities. We have some structures above-ground, but they are rarely any larger than the ones you already saw.
11:45 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > Na ... it simply came to me naturally from all my time in Engineering. Au'r deputizing me to Security simply allowed me to ... how shall I say, 'splice' ideas from io department to another.
11:45 : ookamikuro : Guide> The rest is all underground, much like the city you will be seeing shortly.
11:46 : Telar trIsmail : ::nods:: Computer, end simulation. ::waits as HIC program ends and room reverts to original state:: Well ... let's go. I'm approving this and will brief the Enarrain when I see her.
11:47 : t'Lohan > Hann'yyo Rekkhai.
11:47 : Aelvna tVecj : A whole city sounds incredible.
11:47 : And dark. You don't need sunlight?
11:47 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Captain Joshua Mallory> What sources of electricity do you utilize for illumination and other needs? Is it all magnetic?
11:48 : Telar trIsmail : ::smiles:: And when I brief her I want au with me. Oh and by the way Linds ... at least when we are with io another like this ... na "Rekkhai" is needed. Telar will do.

(11:50:08 PM) ookamikuro: Guide> Most of our electricity is fusion-generated, actually. And we use very little illumination, not much more than in this capsule. We have good low-light vision. If it is uncomfortable for you, we

11:58 : ookamikuro : as far as the eye can see, along stalactites hanging from the ceiling, up stalagmites on the cavern floor, with catwalks criss-crossing like a huge three-dimensional spiderweb. It's enough room for millions.

11:22 : ookamikuro : Ll'> ::tries to come up with something to say to that, but can't:: I suppose it's just tradition. I wonder if we worry about that too much.
11:22 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > ::following Ne'Maenak::
11:22 : Aelvna tVecj : So, given that the matriarchs and patriarchs are...shared... does that lead to social cohesiveness? Rather than clannishness?
11:22 : Telar trIsmail : Ne'Maenak > Here we are, paenhe. Au may sit hrrau this biobed ... ie ... and the process will na take very long.
11:23 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Captain Joshua Mallory> Very impressive. ::Glancing about as they travel through the caverns. He wiped away a line of sweat from his forehead.::
11:23 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > ::lying back on biobed:: So vah do au do for this EEG?
11:23 : Erein tLynta : ::keeps scanning::
11:23 : ookamikuro : Hak> A very good observation, Enarrain. That is one of the primary purposes for our social structure. Another purpose is to more efficiently share genetic material--if you'll forgive an overly medical explanation.
11:24 : Aelvna tVecj : That doesn't lead to mutation? Or is that the desired effect?
11:24 : ::leans over to Mallory:: How is this any different than being cooped up on a ship? In the deep, airless vacuum of space?
11:24 : Telar trIsmail : Ne'Maenak > Very simple, paenhe. We attach electrodes to various parts of the head and activate this machine ::points:: and this records brain waves.
11:24 : ookamikuro : Hak> ::a glance toward Mallory:: Perhaps we should take a moment to rest. Here, we can adjust the environmental controls in this seating area to be more comfortable to your physiology.
11:24 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > ::nods:: Ie, and how long does this take?
11:25 : Erein tLynta : Well, what I'm seeing is what looks like drilling into an old thermal hotspot. Very simular to geothermal power generators.
11:25 : Telar trIsmail : Ne'Maenak > Well it depends. For vah reason were au sent here for the EEG?
11:25 : ookamikuro : Hak> ::leads into an offset catwalk dais with cushions, fungus-landscaping, and a fountain; after he twiddles with some controls, the temperature decreases slightly and the illumination brightens significantly::
11:25 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > ::sighs:: I do na sleep much. I am active during the day and work a great deal at night.
11:26 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Captain Joshua Mallory> That would be much appreciated. ::With a nod to Hak. He offered Ael a wonky (for your K'Yele) smile.:: I don't pretend to understand the human psyche.
11:26 : Telar trIsmail : Ne'Maenak > ::eyebrowraise, almost drops multicorder:: But how many hours *do* au get per day?
11:27 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Captain Joshua Mallory> But it is somehow different. ::He took a seat and let out a soft sigh, trying to ignore his inner fears.:: Tell me... ::Looking to Hak again.:: What is most important to your people?
11:27 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > Total sleep? Oh, maybe six, maybe five.
11:27 : ookamikuro : Ll'> Hm. 'And to free the planet's lifeblood, the All-Mother gave her veins. All manner of wonders were constructed, with the planet's very core as their heart.'
11:28 : Telar trIsmail : Ne'Maenak > ::shakes head:: Paenhe, no wonder au'r Daise sent au here! ::attaching electrodes:: Au might be in danger of developing a seizure disorder ... perhaps epilepsy.
11:28 : ookamikuro : Hak> That is an interesting question. Contentment, I would say, in its various forms--the freedom from want which comes when one is with loved ones, comfortable, well-fed, safe, and given to quiet contemplation.
11:28 : Erein tLynta : ::doesn't turn around:: That would pretty much define the basics of terraforming.
11:29 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > ::reaches up, momentarily stops Ne'Maenak from attaching another electrode:: Tell me truthfully ... if I am diagnosed with something like this ... does it mean the end of my career?
11:30 : ookamikuro : Ll'> Likely so. I've always wondered how long ago was Creation. Our histories go back some few hundred cycles, but it's hard to know how long before that we came to be.
11:30 : Erein tLynta : ::lowers scanner, turns around:: Does your mythos deam your species as the apex of your creators work?
11:30 : Telar trIsmail : Ne'Maenak > ::laughs lightly:: Na, paenhe, it only means au need medication, more sleep and the like. We do na tell people their commissions hrrau Galae are ended for something as simple as this.
11:32 : t'Lohan > ::smiles, releases Ne'Maenak's hand:: H ... hann'yyo. ::lets out a shuddering sigh::
11:32 : ookamikuro : Ll'> Depending on how you define 'apex.' According to the Holy Texts, we were the only animal creations--though they created many of the plants and fungi and microbes that thrive in our caverns and give us life to this day.
11:32 : Aelvna tVecj : ::furrows brow at the answer to Mallory's question:: Hak, is that what your people live for?
11:33 : Telar trIsmail : Ne'Maenak > Aefvadh! ::continues work attaching electrodes:: So. I saw au'r E'lev come with au. Who is au'r Daise?
11:34 : ookamikuro : Hak> Not all of us. Certainly there are some who wish always to know more. Otherwise, we would never have reached beyond our own world. But by and large, we are not an overambitious race.
11:34 : Hak> I apologize if you find that disappointing.
11:34 : Erein tLynta : Let me word it this way. Was this world created for your people or are you simply a serving part of it.
11:34 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > ::suppresses a giggle:: My E'lev *is* my Daise ... he came all the way with me from Main Security.
11:34 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Captain Joshua Mallory> Not in the least. Many of our people, on many different worlds, feel much the same way. ::He was looking quite a bit calmer.::
11:35 : Telar trIsmail : Ne'Maenak > Really! Well he must truly care about au'r health personally.
11:35 : ookamikuro : Ll'> From my own interpretation of the Texts, the latter. I'm no theology scholar though. Why the sudden interest? Not that you should feel compelled to be uninterested.
11:36 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > ::nods:: Ie. I used to be in Engineering and he was concerned my working hours would wind up pushing me over the limit.
11:36 : Aelvna tVecj : It's very different from how we live. But our quality of life is not a model for the universe. ::speaking from age::
11:36 : Erein tLynta : ::turns back to scanning:: If I knew the purpose of the Creation....I could better understand the methods of terraforming.
11:37 : Telar trIsmail : Ne'Maenak > ::attaching the final electrodes, nodding:: Ie and he is wise to be so concerned about any person in his department. Hna. I shall be activating the EEG momentarily. Au won't feel a thing, paenhe. Just relax.
11:37 : ookamikuro : Ll'> There are portions of the Texts that say we were created to be servants to the Creators... But why they would create servants, and then not stay here to be served, is less clear.
11:37 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > All right.
11:38 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Captain Joshua Mallory> More importantly, I would like to know what you and your people hope to gain with an alliance? The Enarrain and I have spoken at length of what we have to offer, but we have not heard
11:38 : Telar trIsmail : Ne'Maenak > ::activates EEG, waits a moment:: Doing mnekha?
11:38 : JhuCaevra tTalia : what you truly desire.
11:38 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > ::nods:: Ie, mnekha here.
11:38 : Erein tLynta : ....well.... my people have a long history of exploring and colonizing worlds.
11:38 : Telar trIsmail : Ne'Maenak > ::smiles to self:: Au see, it's working and it's painless.
11:39 : ookamikuro : Hak> I would say that answer is quite complex. On the one hand, as I say, there are those among us who thirst for knowledge of any kind, and wish contact with worlds beyond our own.
11:39 : Erein tLynta : Even before our own Empire established many worlds.
11:39 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > Au're right ... I do na feel a thing from it.
11:39 : Erein tLynta : We believe it is our fate to reclaim those worlds.
11:39 : ookamikuro : Hak> We also seek to better understand our own creation and Creators--who, as you have seen, are humanoid. So interacting and studying with humanoid races may teach us more about ourselves.
11:40 : Telar trIsmail : Ne'Maenak > Hna close au'r eyes, relax and try to drift off.
11:40 : t'Lohan > Au want me to sleep? Here and hna?
11:40 : ookamikuro : Hak> Lastly, as I have said, security is important to us. We are on the map, now, so to speak--and we are not technologically prepared to defend ourselves should it come to it.
11:41 : Hak> So, an alliance would also offer us a measure of safety.
11:41 : Erein tLynta : I always find it interesting when we come across a world prepared in our prehistory for colonization...and to see how destiny has shaped it for us.
11:41 : Telar trIsmail : Ne'Maenak > Ie. Best to do a sleep EEG so we can see vah happens when au are asleep, paenhe. An EEG done with au awake would na tell us of any problems that au'r Daise is concerned about.
11:42 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Captain Joshua Mallory> ::He nodded thoughtfully, but did not comment.::
11:42 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > All right ... ::closes eyes, tries to relax::
11:42 : Erein tLynta : would your people react if the Creators did return...and asked for your....servitude?
11:42 : Aelvna tVecj : ((t'Lynta, that is the most chilling and best thing EVER))
11:42 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > ::q:: But how long will I have to sleep for?
11:43 : Ne'Maenak > Do na worry. I will wake au when necessary.
11:43 : ookamikuro : Ll'> If the Creators returned? Most of my people have been taught to wait for that day. However, I am afraid that our Creators were not of your race--cousins of yours, humanoids, but not Rihannsu.
11:43 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > All right. ::sighs and tries to relax::
11:44 : Aelvna tVecj : ::wonders if she's supposed to care about these platitudes::thinks WWKD::
11:44 : Telar trIsmail : Ne'Maenak > ::sits at console and monitors EEG::
11:44 : Erein tLynta : ::interest perked:: You have biological evidence of your Creators? Fossils? DNA? Specimens?
11:45 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > ::lying still but na asleep yet::
11:46 : ookamikuro : Ll'> We do know their physical form, in all our illuminated art. The Temple probably has more information, which they might have gotten from the ruins...
11:47 : Erein tLynta : Which of course is restricted. Makes sense, best not having such information out in the public least some interloper shows up dressed up as a Creator.
11:48 : ::plot,plot,plot, scheme,scheme,scheme::
11:48 : ookamikuro : Ll'> You know, I considered joining seminary as a child. Not because I'm particularly religious... but because I wanted access to their record storage. There must be so much information there.
11:48 : Ll'> But I suppose we are getting sidetracked. You were interested in planetary science.
11:49 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > ::feeling drowsy::
11:49 : Aelvna tVecj : ::to Mallory::It seems you have some of what they want...but we have the other half.
11:49 : Telar trIsmail : Ne'Maenak > ::observing brainwaves, nods::
11:49 : Erein tLynta : Hmm, Yes. It's such a broad subject it's so easy to get distracted.
11:49 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > ::falls asleep::
11:50 : Erein tLynta : I assume I can keep these sensor records...or will this site be considered a sacred ruin and thus intelectually quarantened?
11:50 : ookamikuro : Hak> Whatever the Elders' decision, I am sure it will be the wisest one.
11:51 : Ll'> I'm not sure. I don't even know what the precedent is. I mean, there haven't been any new ruins discovered in over a hundred cycles.
11:52 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Captain Joshua Mallory> ::Looking quite relaxed now, the soothing sounds and colors having helped immensely. He stood and clasped his hands behind his back, gazing at Ael.:: So it seems...
11:52 : Telar trIsmail : Ne'Maenak > ::quietly gets up, goes to office of Maenak, informs him of proceeding, requests him to contact Telar::
11:52 : ookamikuro : Ll'> But I don't see the harm in letting you keep your own sensor readings.
11:52 : Telar trIsmail : Maenak > ::listens, nods, dismisses Ne'Maenak::
11:52 : Aelvna tVecj : ::feels no different::merely thirsty::
11:52 : Telar trIsmail : Ne'Maenak > ::quietly makes her way to console, sits::
11:52 : Erein tLynta : ::nods:: Let's hope that relations with my people will usher in many such new breakthroughs for your people.
11:53 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > ::still sleeping::
11:53 : ookamikuro : Ll'> That might be premature... The Elders might choose to side with the Federation.
11:54 : ACTION> One wall flickers in the seating area containing Hak and the guests; it shows the Arbiter in his hut.
11:55 : Arbiter> Please return to the village. The Elders wish to announce their decision.
11:55 : Erein tLynta : Well, then I guess you'll muddle through on your own okay enough in that case.
11:55 : Aelvna tVecj : ((5 minute warning!))
11:55 : ookamikuro : Ll'> You seem to have a low opinion of Federation scientists.
11:55 : Telar trIsmail : Maenak +Telar+ Erei'Riov tr'Isma'il, this is Maenak tr'Aimne. The EEG on Ne'Arrain t'Lohan is proceeding quite mnekha.
11:55 : Erein tLynta : I have a high opinion of their abilities. Just a low opinion of their ethics.
11:56 : Telar trIsmail : +tr'Aimne+ Hann'yyo ... how soon can I have the results?
11:56 : Erein tLynta : They poke their noses into everything...but are unwilling to share what they find.
11:56 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Aimne > +Telar+ Right hna she is sleeping and it will take a while. We will let au know as soon as we can. That is the best we can do.
11:57 : +tr'Aimne+ Hann'yyo.
11:57 : Erein tLynta : They hide it behind lofty goals of exploration and noble thoughts of preventing contamination.
11:57 : ookamikuro : Hak> Well. Let us return to the rail station. ::He stands and moves to the environmental controls to return them how they were::
11:57 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Aimne > +Telar+ Aefvadh.
11:57 : Erein tLynta : ...but it's all simply to benefit their own position..... in my, ethnocentric opinion.
11:57 : Aelvna tVecj : ::looks toward the door::
11:58 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Captain Joshua Mallory> ::He tried not to show his relief, but he was thankful that they would be leaving the caverns. Taking a deep breath, he nodded to Hak and waved a hand at Ael for her to precede him.::
11:58 : ookamikuro : Ll'> Forgive me for saying, but they probably feel something similar about you.
11:58 : Telar trIsmail : ::sits back, drums fingers on desk, nervously waiting::
11:58 : Erein tLynta : Yes, but we admit our goals.
11:59 : Aelvna tVecj : ::precedes::
11:59 : Telar trIsmail : ::q, to self:: Seems like forever ...
11:59 : Aelvna tVecj : ((last words!))
11:59 : Telar trIsmail : ::looks over an ISD::
11:59 : Erein tLynta : We march under the wings of the raptor...and no one hides for her eyes or shadow.

11:11 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna > ::looking up at Ne'Maenak:: So how much longer of this infernal wait?
11:12 : Laehval tTemarr : ::Jhu was occupying one of the stations on the bridge, determined to be... helpful. She didn't do much except monitor interesting communications and check sensor scans once in a while, but she was trying.::

11:12 : Aelvna tVecj : Now, we're waiting to see what the Federation will do...and I'm sure they're waiting for us.

11:15 : Ael> But now... I admire your tenacity, when you certianly have the option of having a real bed to sleep on, instead of a cot, and 500 uhlans willing to serve.
11:15 : Tr'l, the Helm Officer> ::;thinking 500 uhlans does an army make::

11:27 : Aelvna tVecj : Hann'yyo. It's good--er, well, at least I'm not stuck underground with the enemy anymore.
11:28 : Laehval tTemarr : Jhu> I believe the situation was far more complicated on that. Have au seen the records of the Lloann'na tactics? Would au suggest we lower ourselves to their level? This planet is beneath our notice save for one of location.
11:28 : Telar trIsmail : And it is good to have au back.
11:29 : Laehval tTemarr : Jhu> And their refusal to join us will likely be the counter-weight we need to wrench them from the Federation once the Lloann'na fail to keep their promises.
11:29 : Aelvna tVecj : Tr'l, the Helm Officer> So that's what you'll tell the Senate when we return? Instead of the truth?

11:31 : Aelvna tVecj : Ael> A device?
11:31 : Laehval tTemarr : (( Baw chica baw baw. ))
11:32 : Telar trIsmail : Ie, io which will give us an advantage over our enemies.
11:33 : Aelvna tVecj : Tr'l, the Helm Officer> If the Enarrain were here, this never would have happened. You may be rising to luxury, but the majority of us are sinking, Advocate.
11:33 : Ael> What is this...device?
11:34 : Telar trIsmail : ::q:: If I might explain in au'r chambers, Ihhei? ::casts a decidedly disapproving glance at Tr'l::
11:35 : Laehval tTemarr : Jhu> Enlighten me. I wish to know aur situation. If it is something that should be brought to the attention of the Senate, it will be.

11:37 : Aelvna tVecj : Ael> ::settles in behind her desk:: Well. Let's have it.
11:37 : Telar trIsmail : Ne'Arrain t'Lohan thought this up while looking at our security cameras.
11:38 : Aelvna tVecj : Tr'l, the Helm Officer> The major problem...beyond the wrong forks and the wrong accommodations and the complete lack of spying from the ecological perspective...
11:38 : Tr'l, the Helm Officer> Was this. ::gestures to her and the chambers and the oira:: You appealed to their sense of logic and science.
11:39 : Tr'l, the Helm Officer> This is an emotional matter. They should have been seduced. Cajoled. Tricked. Not... pandered to.
11:39 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > Ie, Ihhei. It occurred to me that we could somehow plant this ::shows device:: on board an enemy ship if we could board it ... and from where we are, remotely activate it ...
11:39 : Aelvna tVecj : Tr'l, the Helm Officer> ::disgusted:: As if they were galae.
11:39 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > ... and when we do, it would cause their own security systems to be scrambled so we could feed holographic images of whatever sort we want into them.
11:40 : Aelvna tVecj : Ael> Intriguing. ::folds hands, already imagining what she could do to Captain Mallory:: What's the advantage over just planting a bomb?
11:41 : Telar trIsmail : Much tidier, I suppose.
11:41 : (( :-D ))
11:42 : Aelvna tVecj : Ael> I suppose we could trick them into revealing information.
11:42 : Telar trIsmail : ::nods:: Indeed we could.
11:42 : Laehval tTemarr : Jhu> ::She smiled again, perfectly understanding.:: Such things were done at any available opportunity, but it is difficult to cajole or seduce... ::She moved slightly closer, her voice lowering.:: when others are present that can

11:45 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > I'm rather proud of this if I say so myself Ihhei. Io of the devices I've thought up as a result of my time in Engineering.
11:45 : Aelvna tVecj : Tr'l, the Helm Officer> Why are you playing Ops officer to the barbarians?

11:29 : Telar trIsmail : ::in Main Security, addressing officers:: ... so, in conclusion, that's the long and the short of vah we have to accomplish. We have to plant this device on the Lloann'na vessel and use it to our advantage.

11:31 : t'Lohan > In the first place, awfully messy. In the second place, with this device, we'll be able to get the Lloann'na to think they're perfectly secure when in fact they'll be looking at forged holo-images,
11:32 : t'Lohan > enabling us to board them and take their ship.
11:32 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lynta, did anything happen while you were on the oira and I was not?
11:33 : Erein tLynta : No commander, I just came on shift myself.
11:33 : Telar trIsmail : Precisely. Very artful and we get io of their vessels and Elements knows how many of their crew in the way of prisoners as a result. With hardly a struggle.
11:33 : Aelvna tVecj : ::nods:: Sufficient.
11:34 : With all our other resources exhausted here, we're planning an incursion for the Lloann'an.
11:34 : Telar trIsmail : S'Nac > Do au think it will be hard for us to board them and plant this device for starters, Rekkhai?
11:34 : Aelvna tVecj : Jhu was extolling, earlier, that the natives are far less important than their land.

11:36 : ::laughs:: That's it, Nveid! We must do vahever is necessary to fool them into thinking we are part of them and na enemies. The deception will be complete. I leave it to au to decide how we will accomplish this.
11:36 : Erein tLynta : They did not seem to have the power or numbers to resist even a small outpost being established here. So much unused area they would probably not even notice...except as their resources started to dry up
11:36 : Telar trIsmail : Dismissed all to duty. ::heads to desk as the others wander off::
11:37 : t'Lohan > So ... ::leaning forward over desk:: we'll need plenty in the way of disguise. Lloann'na uniforms for starters.
11:37 : Aelvna tVecj : There are many extraneous people aboard the Leaf. We could leave them with a scout ship and a shield generator?
11:38 : Telar trIsmail : ::nods:: Ie ... forehead surgery as well. ::rubs ridges:: Also training so as to discard emotion at all times. Otherwise our ruse will fail.
11:38 : t'Lohan > Also io last detail, Telar.
11:38 : Erein tLynta : As long as the Federation stayed out of the system. I'd assume they've already sent a gloating message back to their command base.
11:39 : Telar trIsmail : Ie, Linds?
11:39 : Aelvna tVecj : Surely Mallory would leave a delegation as well.
11:40 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > A Lloann'na ship uses a matter-antimatter warp core based on dilithium for propulsion. We use Artificial Quantum Singularities, even in our scout ships.
11:41 : t'Lohan > ::purses lips expressively:: How ... would we go to io of their ships without being detected?

11:45 : I wonder how many of the Leaf would relish exile. ::smirks::
11:45 : Telar trIsmail : If we ... if we told them we had a number of Lloann'na prisoners and we wished to make a good-will gesture by releasing them into their custody ...
11:46 : t'Lohan > ::brightens:: I see ... then they would na suspect us taking the "Vulcans" to them in a Rihannsu scout craft, na?
11:46 : ::nods:: Indeed.
11:46 : Aelvna tVecj : And perhaps there are a few of the natives who'd want to leave as well.
11:46 : There are always a handful anywhere, aren't there?
11:47 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > Suppose ... they had na in the way of prisoners to exchange with us?
11:47 : Erein tLynta : I suppose if we gain control of the Federation ship we could just turn it's weapons onto the planet, then swoop in and save the day and simply let things follow their natural course after that.
11:47 : Telar trIsmail : ::laughs:: All the more "generous" of us, eh, Linds?
11:47 : t'Lohan > ::throws head back and laughs loudly with Telar::
11:48 : Erein tLynta : Even in the most peaceful society there are those who would rather be anywhere but where they're at.
11:48 : Aelvna tVecj : ::nods::
11:48 : Telar trIsmail : So. We have a plan at last. +t'Kirna, tr'Moussa+ Ray'hna, Nveid ... report to OD station at once.

11:52 : Aelvna tVecj : The Lloann'na have not made contact. Perhaps we should pretend to leave after Telar's program is complete.
11:52 : Telar trIsmail : S'Nac > I ... I think so, T'Nal.
11:53 : T'Nal > :::begins making out on the job with S'Nac, getting her lipstick all over his collar:::
11:53 : t'Kirna, tr'Moussa > :::arriving at OD desk in Main Security:::
11:53 : Erein tLynta : I'm sure we're making them quite nervouse just hanging around in orbit at the moment. I'm sure they expect something from us.
11:54 : Telar trIsmail : Ah, good. We hna have a plan so as to fool those Lloann'na into thinking there's na a thing to worry from us. ::pause:: A faked prisoner exchange.
11:54 : t'Kirna > ::exchanges glances with tr'Moussa:: Rekkhai?
11:54 : Aelvna tVecj : Well, then, we'll get it.
11:55 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > We tell them we have some Lloann'na personnel in our br'tehh and we're letting them go into their custody.
11:55 : ::nods:: That way they won't suspect a thing when we send our team over on a Rihannsu scout craft. And all except a couple will be disguised as Vulcan "prisoners."
11:56 : Aelvna tVecj : ((They'll get it. THEY'LL))
11:56 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > Ah ... so that way we get aboard and plant the device.

11:17 : Telar trIsmail : ::nods:: The Enarrain says we are to search the ship up and down and find every last one of them and ascertain vah their motives are.
11:17 : Aelvna tVecj : Aensai... Perhaps you should put on a uniform with less...blood on it.
11:17 : Erein tLynta : ::glances over to the one Jhu mentioned was still alive::
11:18 : JhuCaevra tTalia : He's breathing, but I wouldn't guess as to how long. ::She pulled several items from one of the pouches on his vest and stood up to examine them.::
11:18 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > ::nods:: Ie Rekkhai. On it hna. ::grabs kaleh and hand ieyaak, exits to patrol::
11:18 : Holo Remus Lupin : Aensai>*blinks* Is there not something you need more of me rekkhi? *looks down in disgust at his uniform, more in disgust it might take him away from his duties to the Empire*
11:18 : Telar trIsmail : ::motions to S'Nac and T'Nal::
11:19 : Aelvna tVecj : The pirates are dispatched. you may take your leave briefly until t'Lynta and I find out where they came from.
11:19 : Scans?
11:19 : Telar trIsmail : S'Nac, T'Nal > ::coming to desk in Main Security:: Rekkhai?
11:19 : Holo Remus Lupin : Aensai>As you command Rekkhai *salutes then leaves the bridge*
11:20 : Erein tLynta : Sensors are clear now. Reviewing records of the battle.
11:20 : Telar trIsmail : Take au'r personal weaponry and ISD's and head out towards Medical.
11:20 : Erein tLynta : ::pulls up sensor skematics of the pirate ships::
11:20 : Telar trIsmail : S'Nac, T'Nal > Ie Rekkhai. ::gather weapons and ISD's and head off::
11:21 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Pirate three> ::-Dead, but twitching next to t'Lynta's feet.::
11:21 : Aelvna tVecj : ((I'm imagining us watching battle replays on YouTube))
11:21 : I should have had Aensai take one of the bodies with him. They're starting to smell.
11:22 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna ... au will be my right hand in this ... we'll take the command route.
11:22 : t'Lohan ... au have the Engineering route as au used to work there. Let's be off.
11:22 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Pirate at Jhu's feet> ::Finally gasps for breath, twitches, and whispers something just before he dies.::
11:23 : Erein tLynta : ::doesn't notice the twitching dead....then suddenly does..jumps, gasps silently, and freezes with her eyes closed...with a cold shivver down her back she pushes the body away with her boot::
11:23 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna, t'Lohan, tr'Isma'il > ::gather weapons, ISD's, head off::
11:24 : Aelvna tVecj : ::raises kaleh at all the death rattles:: What in arreinye?!
11:24 : Telar trIsmail : Pirate > ::emerges from out of nowhere, tries to jump tr'Moussa::
11:25 : Aelvna tVecj : ::moves over between t'Lynta and the corpse::
11:25 : Erein tLynta : ::recovering herself:: The ships seemed to be a hodpodge of parts and sources.
11:26 : Aelvna tVecj : Look away, scientist.
11:26 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > ::dodges, kicks Pirate to ground, slashes him with kaleh::
11:26 : Erein tLynta : ::happily diverts her eyes from the bodies::
11:26 : Aelvna tVecj : ::slits the throat of the one under the science console::no blood flows:: Okay.
11:26 : Telar trIsmail : Pirate in Security > ::chokes, dies quickly::
11:26 : Aelvna tVecj : ::straightens:: What's this about the ships? Any identifiable, um, parts?
11:27 : :;didn't hear the whisper, but keeping a suspicious eye on Jhu::
11:27 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > ::searches Pirate for any clues::
11:28 : Erein tLynta : The parts were Romulan, Klingon, Federation, Cardassian, Dominion. Looks like they made use of anything left floating in space from the Dominion War.
11:28 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::She nudged the dead pirate with the toe of her boot to make sure he was really dead and then went back to looking at the jewelry she'd looted from him, eventually slipping the pieces into her pocket.::
11:29 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > ::pulls a bag from Pirate's pocket, rifles through it::
11:29 : Erein tLynta : However, the powerplants all seemed to be either Klingon or Federation in origin. Could simply be those are the easiest to get parts for.
11:30 : Holo Remus Lupin : Aensai>::throws off his uniform once inside and steps in to take a shower::
11:30 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > ::discovers the usual loot ... plus ... :: Hmmm what's this? ::puts hand inside bag and pulls out ...::
11:31 : JhuCaevra tTalia : (( A shrunken head ))
11:31 : Aelvna tVecj : So they were in the war, and then wandered all the way back here...
11:31 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > ::... a deck of cards ... ::
11:31 : tr'Moussa > ::double take::
11:31 : Aelvna tVecj : I wonder if we should ask the Klingons :;spits:: or Captain Mallory ::spits:: if there have been similar attacks.
11:32 : Telar trIsmail : tr'Moussa > ::shakes head, deposits deck back in bag, heads back on patrol route::
11:32 : Erein tLynta : Commander, something else. None of the ships had much in the way of fuel storage. Made them lighter and more manuverable...but their range was too small to be from any known system in this area.
11:33 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > ::peering through Engineering, going like a cat gingerly at night, sticking to the walls::
11:34 : Erein tLynta : <<with all the blood...and spit, kinda hard Not to stick to the walls>>
11:34 : Aelvna tVecj : Then... where did they come from?
11:35 : Erein tLynta : I do not know.
11:35 : Aelvna tVecj : ::looks around the bridge, wondering if anyone else will have an answer::
11:35 : Telar trIsmail : S'Nac, T'Nal > ::looking through Medical::
11:35 : JhuCaevra tTalia : All over, I'd guess. ::She moved to another very dead pirate and went through his pockets, searching for more information.::
11:36 : This one isn't Orion, but seems to be some other type of humanoid. He's bleeding red.
11:37 : Aelvna tVecj : ::walks over and peers down at him:: Inconvenient that you shot most of his face off.
11:37 : Telar trIsmail : t'Kirna > ::with tr'Isma'il, on a deck-to-deck search of the ship::
11:39 : JhuCaevra tTalia : You'd rather be dead? ::Glancing up at Ael as she hovered over the body. She pulled the insignia off of his shirt collar and held it out to her.::
11:40 : Erein tLynta : There would be less paperwork that way.
11:41 : ::goes back to her science stuff::
11:43 : Aelvna tVecj : Na, of course not. I mean, can't we just run his blood against the zoology database?
11:45 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Ie. An easy solution if he is from io of the worlds we have on record. ::She stood, more looted "treasure" in her hand.:: But that is na my department.
11:45 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > ::continuing her search in a *very* dark area of Engineering ... pauses to shine her wrist lamp around::
11:45 : Aelvna tVecj : ::glances at Jhu's hands:: And your department is...?
11:45 : Erein tLynta : ::turns slowly and winces....then pulls out scanner::
11:46 : ::scans the remains::
11:46 : Telar trIsmail : Pirate in Engineering > ::silently steps forward from behind her, quickly clamps her mouth shut and holds a knife to her throat:: ::q:: One word ... and you are dead.
11:46 : Pirate in Engineering > ::q:: Do you understand me?
11:47 : JhuCaevra tTalia : Na medical. And na science. ::Poking through the pieces in her hand. She held up a particular coin and arched a brow.:: There are still civilizations that use this form of currency?
11:47 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > ::nods, drops weapons::
11:47 : Pirate in Engineering > ::q:: Gooooood. This way. ::leads her back to his hiding place::
11:49 : Erein tLynta : This one is humanoid. Possibly Terran or one of their colony worlds. No notable features to pinpoint an origin.
11:50 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::There were also several crystal-like cylinders which she held up to the light and peered through, frowning.:: Some form of data device?
11:50 : Telar trIsmail : Pirate in Engineering > ::shines light into her face so her eyes squeeze shut:: ::q:: Ahhh, a Romulan beauty. ::stuffs gag into her mouth, binds her quickly:: You will make a fine one for my collection. ::smirks::
11:51 : t'Kirna > It's been a while Rekkhai ... shall we contact the others?
11:51 : Aelvna tVecj : ::frowns at the crystals:: Not my department...
11:51 : Telar trIsmail : ::nods:: +tr'Moussa+ Nveid, come in. Report.
11:52 : tr'Moussa > +Isma'il+ ::q:: tr'Moussa here Rekkhai. Found io here in Security. Killed the wort.
11:52 : JhuCaevra tTalia : And your department is...? ::She tucked the crystals into her own pocket and held out the random pieces of jewelry.:: Most carry their fortunes with them. Jewelry is easiest to carry, wear, etc.
11:53 : Telar trIsmail : +tr'Moussa+ Mnekha.
11:53 : +S'Nac, T'Nal+ S'Nac, T'Nal, come in. Report.
11:54 : T'Nal > +tr'Isma'il+ ::q:: Rekkhai ... all is well so far here in Medical.
11:54 : +S'Nac, T'Nal+ Mnekha.
11:54 : Aelvna tVecj : ::smirks:: My department is keeping you in the comfort that you have become accustomed to. ::gestures at t'Lynta:: and her. So that you can figure this out without the...smell.
11:54 : To distract you.
11:55 : Telar trIsmail : +t'Lohan+ t'Lohan, come in. Report.
11:55 : Pirate in Engineering > ::hears comm:: What?
11:55 : t'Lohan > HMMM!!!!
11:56 : Aelvna tVecj : ((Mutant!))
11:56 : Telar trIsmail : +t'Lohan+ t'Lohan, come in. Come in. Report! ::exchanges glances with t'Kirna::
11:57 : Pirate in Engineering > ::tears comm off of t'Lohan, flings it away::
11:57 : +t'Lohan+ t'Lohan. Report!! ::hears static::
11:57 : t'Kirna > Something's wrong ...
11:57 : JhuCaevra tTalia : ::She smiled slightly and the jewelry went into one of her other pockets. She'd examine the pieces later to determine the origins. Or perhaps she was just adding to her own collection.::
11:58 : Telar trIsmail : Pirate in Engineering > I warned you. ::holds up knife:: Not a sound, my beauty. Not a sound. ::smirks::
11:58 : Aelvna tVecj : t'Lynta... Please, take half a shift and eat while we clean up here. By then the autopsies will be complete.
11:58 : Telar trIsmail : t'Lohan > ::in a cold sweat::
11:58 : Aelvna tVecj : ((1 minute warning!))
11:59 : Telar trIsmail : Let's head to Engineering.
11:59 : t'Kirna > ::nods and follows tr'Isma'il::
12:00 : Sunday, February 10, 2008
12:00 : Erein tLynta : Yes ma'am. ::logs off her console:: ::removes her gloves and leaves them on the still sticky station for someone else to deal with::
