[18:27] <~CEO-LtCmdr_Moore> E> ::Nicholas looked up a moment from his station and over to Lishan:: Is the secondary EPS junction in section 98B still set and linked?
[18:28] <@CTac-LtMichaels> *> ::Lt. Michaels would make his way to the shuttlebay to receive his assignment::
[18:28] <@CMO-Lt_Williamson> S> ::She monitored each of the remote areas of the ship, from one place, namely that of her office in Sickbay::
[18:29] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> SB> ::The Captain was already standing within the shuttlebay, his eyes looking around waiting for the others to arrive. He smiled to his Chief Tactical:: Lieutenant...first to the party.
[18:29] <@AEng-LtJg_Lishan> E> ::checking everything over:: Yes, Sir. Everything looks good.
[18:30] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> *>::Shaking his head and muttering a bit, He finally made his way down to shuttle bay. A glance to make sure Adain didn't get lost on the way::
[18:30] <@XO-LtCmdr_McDougal> TL> Calling for the turbolift she went down to the Shuggle bay with Viktor::
[18:31] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> <For reference. Our Ops officer is an Ensign, not a Lieutenant. We're having problems switching the nick.
[18:31] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> >
[18:32] <@CTac-LtMichaels> SB> ::arrives in the shuttlebay, and finding the captain, makes his way towards him:: Good day, captain.
[18:32] <~CEO-LtCmdr_Moore> E> Alright. Well it looks like everything is whooked up best we can figure. Time to shut down the sensors so we can get them relayed into the system and reboot.
[18:33] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> SB> ::He had a padd in hand.:: Alright, Lieutenant Michaels, you and Crewman Shields are in the Runabout "Hercules."
[18:34] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> SB> ::As the tubolift brought them down, he stepped off and looked to the Captian.:: "Sorry I'm late."
[18:35] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> SB> ::He looked to Adian:: You and Technician Dennis are in the Runabout "Damacoles."
[18:35] <@AEng-LtJg_Lishan> E> Aye, Sir. ::She starts to shut down the sensors that she's able to from where she is::
[18:36] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> And Lieutenant Draven, you and Ensign McDuncan, are in Shuttle 1-A, understood? I want a defensive permitter, and I want you to feed back all sensor information to the Cortana.
[18:36] <@CTac-LtMichaels> SB> Yes, sir. ::he would go to find Crewman Shields and they would make their way to the runabout "Hercules"::
[18:36] <@XO-LtCmdr_McDougal> SB> Yes Sir!
[18:36] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> Yes Sir
[18:37] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> ::he headed over to McDuncan and made their way over to the shuttle::
01[18:37] <@CSci-LtJg_OBrien> E> ::strolls in :: Science has shut down the dept sensors and auxillary. :::walks to where Lishan is:: i was told to report here, to lend a hand... should you need one.
[18:37] <~CEO-LtCmdr_Moore> E> Check the power distrobution nodes one more time if you would before I let the Captain know we're ready.
[18:37] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> SB> You are cleared for immediate launch ::he said moving to the turbolift.:: +Taps+ Chardan to engineering, be ready in about ten minutes for the shut down.
04[18:37] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[18:38] <~CEO-LtCmdr_Moore> E> +taps+ Understood, we're just making some last minute checks.
04[18:38] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[18:38] <@CMO-Lt_Williamson> S> ::She periodically spoke to someone who used their comm to contact her, relaying information or taking notes::
[18:39] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> TL> ::Inside the Turbolift, he would call for the bridge, and the turbolift would begin carrying him:: +taps+ Chardan to Williamson, report?
04[18:39] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[18:39] <@AEng-LtJg_Lishan> E> ::She checks over the sensor readings:: Looks good from here, Sir. ::Then nods to OBrien:: Pick a console.
[18:39] <@CTac-LtMichaels> SB> ::Lt. Michaels and Crewman Shields would be finishing the pre-flight check before warming the engines and readying for takeoff, hearing that they were already cleared for launch when ready::
[18:40] <@XO-LtCmdr_McDougal> SB> ::She grabbed Techinican Dennis and went over and into the "Damacoles". Get ready to rock the town Mr. Dennis. She sat down and started up the shuttle.
[18:40] <@CMO-Lt_Williamson> +taps+ Some of the crew is a bit perturbed. That's to be expected. NOthing out of the ordinary as of yet.
04[18:40] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[18:40] <&ShipLCARS> ACTION: The shuttle bay doors would open in anticipation of the launch, all shuttles and runabouts would be given leave to launch.
04[18:40] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
01[18:41] <@CSci-LtJg_OBrien> ::picks a console and moves over to it::
[18:41] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> ::As the two get in and settled, a few minutes taken to run the preflight test. Once cleared the engines where started::
[18:41] <@CTac-LtMichaels> SB> ::the engines would go from idling to increasing power as Michaels and Shields would bring the shuttle to launching position and would exit the bay::
[18:42] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> TL> +taps+ Thank you, Doctor. Try to keep everyone as calm as possible. Chardan out. ::He spoke as he stepped onto the bridge.:: Ensign Higgins, I need you to prepare to receive data streams from the shuttles leaving the ship shortly.
04[18:42] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[18:42] <~CEO-LtCmdr_Moore> E> Stormy, do those reading look correct to you in the simulation?
01[18:43] <@CSci-LtJg_OBrien> E>::looks up from the console:: Looks perfect to me, sir.
[18:43] <@CMO-Lt_Williamson> ::mutters:: keep everyone calm. Easy for him to say, he's the Captain
[18:43] <@Ops-Lt_Higgins> Yes Sir, doing so now ::as her attention shifted to what was needed:
[18:44] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> +Taps+ Bridge to Engineering. Status, Commander? ::He sounded alittle anxious.::
04[18:44] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[18:44] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> SB> ::Taking the controls, he increased speed, locking into the runabouts they launched off::
[18:45] <@XO-LtCmdr_McDougal> SB> ::Her shuttle was increased in power and she followed Michael's shuttle out as soon as he was cleared. Off into the wilde blue yonder!::
[18:45] <~CEO-LtCmdr_Moore> E> Alright then, Lishan I need you to watch the power flow and make sure that they don't start to overload the EPS conduits. O'Brien, if you'd watch the temporal distrubution levels and make sure they are going to link with our sensors, I'll keep my eyes on the rest of the systems.
01[18:46] <@CSci-LtJg_OBrien> E> ::made adjustments as necessary:: yes, sir.
[18:46] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> ::while waiting for Engineering to respond.:: Ensign, open a communications channel to the shuttles.
[18:47] <~CEO-LtCmdr_Moore> E> +taps+ Just one second, Captain. That and it would be pertinant if the shuttles were in position first so that nothing slips past, first.
04[18:47] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[18:47] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> +Taps+ How long will you need, once the Sensors are shut down?
04[18:47] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[18:48] <@AEng-LtJg_Lishan> E> ::typing in a few minor corrections after pulling up the power flow readouts and looked up from the console and nodded to Moore::
[18:48] <~CEO-LtCmdr_Moore> E> +taps+ It will probably take at the least half an hour to reboot, calibrate them, make sure its working properly so I'll have it done in 20.
04[18:48] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[18:49] <~CEO-LtCmdr_Moore> E> ::Moore caught both okays from O'Brien and Lishan and smiled:: +taps+ We're ready once the shuttles are in position.
04[18:49] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[18:49] <@XO-LtCmdr_McDougal> *> How you doing there Mr. Dennis? ::She asked as she checked her control panel. "I bet Viktor is having a blast right now."
[18:50] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> ::Once the channel was open he would speak:: +Com+ Cortana to the shuttles. Are we in position?
04[18:50] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
01[18:51] <@CSci-LtJg_OBrien> ::the flow indicators for temporal distrubution looked right::
[18:52] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> *> ::He was of course happy to be behind the controls at times. Keeping track of things with his current partner as they ran some scans on the area.:: +taps+ A-1 is on position.
04[18:52] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[18:52] <@XO-LtCmdr_McDougal> *> +com+ Damacoles to Cortana. We are locked and loaded Sir. ::She had to smile as she flipped one of the switches. Checking their controls::
04[18:52] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[18:53] <@CTac-LtMichaels> Hercules> +Com+ Yes, sir, we are in position now.
04[18:53] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
02[18:54] * @CTac-LtMichaels ( Quit (Client exited )
[18:54] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> *> ::His partner handed over his com badge and he used it.. his own seeming to have some.. wires crossed::
[18:54] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> +Com+ I need all shuttles to establish data streams with the Cortana and keep your channels open. ::He nodded:: Computer Red Alert.
04[18:54] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[18:54] <&ShipLCARS> ACTION: The status change to 4,1RED ALERT as a loud klaxons sound and the lights dim.
04[18:54] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[18:54] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> +taps+ Bridge to Engineering. We are ready.
04[18:54] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
03[18:54] * CTac-LtMichaels ( has joined #USS-Cortana
03[18:54] * ShipLCARS sets mode: +o CTac-LtMichaels
[18:56] <@XO-LtCmdr_McDougal> Damocles> Mr. Dennis your awfully quiet.. Come on.. sing with me here.
[18:56] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> *> +com+ "On it Captian"
04[18:56] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[18:57] <@XO-LtCmdr_McDougal> +com+ Yes Sir! ::She looked to Mr. Dennis who established the data streams, keeping the channel open::
04[18:57] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[18:57] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> ::He looked to Ensign Higgins.:: Are we getting their data streams?
[18:57] <~CEO-LtCmdr_Moore> E> +taps+ Starting shut down. ::he slipped over in the chair to the secondary console for a moment and then back tapping along it quickly before the computer let them know "Warning Primary and secondary Sensors are offline." He glanced up idly:: Yes I know computer.
04[18:57] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[18:58] <@Ops-Lt_Higgins> Yes we are, Sir ::a nod to the Captain:
[18:58] <@CTac-LtMichaels> Hercules> Shields, open up the scanners and patch them through to the Cortana. ::Crewman Shields would comply and begin his work at his console::
[18:58] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> *> ::Between the two of them. The codes where set and the data started streaming. A slight adjust ment in their position every so often::
[18:59] <&ShipLCARS> ACTION: As the sensors on the Cortana went out, the viewscreen on the bridge faded out. Along with severla operations and tactical consoles, along with science and helm as well
04[18:59] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[18:59] <&ShipLCARS> 4,1 RED ALERT
[18:59] <@Ops-Lt_Higgins> what the? ::Higgins was tapping at her console:
[19:00] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> Good, alert me if they have any problems. ::He would slowly move and settle in his chair, and would rub his forehead. It wasn't good being blind. He then looked to the Ensign:: That is normal, the sensors are offline.
[19:00] <@CTac-LtMichaels> Hercules> ::Lt. Micheals would help screen the data that poured in from the surrounding space, taking note of anything that might pop up that needed immediate attention, especially new craft entering the area::
[19:01] <@Ops-Lt_Higgins> No Sir, it isnt normal at all ::she was frantically trying to get the console to power up:
[19:01] <~CEO-LtCmdr_Moore> E> +taps+ Sensors are now off line. ::he looked to Lishan:: Keep those levels in check. I'll also monitor the sensor information from the shuttles. O'Brien, if you would do the honors please. ::refering to starting the coupling of the device into the ships systems::
04[19:01] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[19:01] <@XO-LtCmdr_McDougal> Damocles>+com+ Damocles to Cortana are you gettig our feed?
04[19:01] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[19:02] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> ::He smiled a moment:: Sit back Ensign. Just monitor those data streams. +Taps+ Chardan to Williamson, how are you holding up?
04[19:02] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[19:03] <@AEng-LtJg_Lishan> E> ::She only nodded, tapping at the console every now and then::
[19:03] <@CMO-Lt_Williamson> +taps+ I am fine Captain. Your crew is coping just fine. A few minor stressers, and that is why sedatives were made.
04[19:03] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[19:03] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> +Com+ Cortana here, we're getting your feeds.
04[19:03] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[19:04] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> +Taps+ Excellent, Doctor. You can tell them, it should only be about 30 more minutes at the most.
04[19:04] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[19:04] <&ShipLCARS> 4,1 RED ALERT
[19:04] <@CMO-Lt_Williamson> M> ::Running the whole medical side of it was relatively easy. One person had fallen and had a cut on their forehead, but it was being handled by the medical personnel there, on the deck and she was abreast of everything::
[19:04] <@XO-LtCmdr_McDougal> Damocles> ::She looked to Techinican Dennis.:: We rock..
01[19:04] <@CSci-LtJg_OBrien> E> ::types in the commands to start the process of coupling the device into the ships system:: On it, Sir.
[19:04] <@CMO-Lt_Williamson> +taps+ Roger Sir.
04[19:04] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[19:05] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> A-1> ::He nodded hearing the Captian. The two watching the data stream every so often, between watching the sky::
01[19:07] <@CSci-LtJg_OBrien> Temporal distribution levels are steady, sir... joining now ::presses a button::
[19:07] <~CEO-LtCmdr_Moore> E> Lishan, how are the power levels. Are they still within acceptable ranges?
[19:08] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> ::He sat on the bridge, waiting anxiously for word they hadd sensors again::
[19:09] <&ShipLCARS> 4,1 RED ALERT
[19:09] <@AEng-LtJg_Lishan> E> Aye, Sir.
01[19:09] <@CSci-LtJg_OBrien> 30 seconds to device integration...
[19:09] <@CTac-LtMichaels> Hercules> Shields, anything of interest yet? No? Hm, well, keep patching the data through until the Cortana's own sensors are back online..
[19:10] <@Ops-Lt_Higgins> ::Higgins was eyeing the consoles now, just waiting:
01[19:10] <@CSci-LtJg_OBrien> E>10 seconds...
[19:11] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> A-1> ::He tapped a few things on the control to test the area every so often.::
01[19:11] <@CSci-LtJg_OBrien> E> levels are still goes nothin!
[19:12] <~CEO-LtCmdr_Moore> E> ::his eyes narrowed and he leaned closer to the display as the systems started to reset and hopefully accept the new system without any problems::
[19:13] <&ShipLCARS> ACTION: As Sensors came back online, there was an odd moment. The Cortana now saw the Alien vessel, and the Alien vessel knew the Cortana saw it. It was at that point it dropped out of it's "temporal invisibility." Even the shuttles could see the massive ship now. And the ship was moving to the Cortana and her shuttles, charging weapons.
04[19:13] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[19:14] <&ShipLCARS> 4,1 RED ALERT
[19:14] <@CSec-Lt_Draven> A-1> +Com+ "Captain, we have company"
04[19:14] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[19:14] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> ::As the viewscreen came back up. Chardan stood.:: +com+ Cortana to all shuttles get back inside now!
04[19:14] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
01[19:14] <@CSci-LtJg_OBrien> We have company, Moore...
[19:14] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> +Taps+ Bridge to all hands, battle stations.
04[19:14] [&ShipLCARS SOUND]
[19:14] <@CTac-LtMichaels> Hercules> +Com+ Enemy bogey spotted, Captain! Permission to fire?

[19:16] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> Thank you Commander.
[19:17] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> Good SIM everyone. The next SIM will pick up where this one left off. For logging, you may log anything that happened before this SIM took place, duty or personal.
[19:17] <~CEO-LtCmdr_Moore> ::raises::
[19:17] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> Yes?
[19:17] <~CEO-LtCmdr_Moore> Are you SURE we can't keep simming for another hour?
[19:18] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> Normally I would consider it. But there is a battle in the next hour, and I have another commitment tonight, and there are others who cannot stay because works comes early for them.
[19:19] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> I just want to repeat the announcements from earlier so that everyone hears them.
[19:20] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> First, the logging rules posted on the website are being enforced starting this week. If you need to review them they are on the website.
[19:20] <@CMO-Lt_Williamson> But you said the website address is being changed, when will it change?
[19:20] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> Secondly, we have been accepted to UCIP as a Developmental SIM, we are no longer a Sub-SIM of the Enterprise.
[19:21] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> And Thirdly our website address will change, but there is no telling when that will happen. We are getting a space for ourselves on the SQL database UCIP has.
01[19:22] <@CSci-LtJg_OBrien> should we make a copy our backgrounds and such just in case?
[19:22] <@XO-LtCmdr_McDougal> So we might be something like UCIP.ORg/Cortana?
[19:22] <@CTac-LtMichaels> awesome
[19:23] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> Yes, make a copy of it. I've been told everything that is there will be transfered over, but I wouldn't risk it, if there is alot of work in your background.
[19:23] <@CTac-LtMichaels> Good point, should we who have not completed our bio's go ahead and complete those this week too?
[19:23] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> Yes, for the Cortana website AND the UCIP database. If you need your number, please PM me.
[19:24] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> Anything else?
[19:25] <~CEO-LtCmdr_Moore> ::raises::
[19:25] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> Yes?
[19:25] <~CEO-LtCmdr_Moore> You said if we log it has to be BEFORE this sim. How much time IC does that mean?
[19:25] <~CEO-LtCmdr_Moore> Enough to be on duty only, or also enough time for off duty?
[19:26] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> within the past 24 hours IC, since the Alien was taken from the Cortana.
[19:26] <~CEO-LtCmdr_Moore> Alright, thank you.
[19:26] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> Anything else?
02[19:26] * @CTac-LtMichaels ( Quit (Client exited )
[19:26] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> Alrighty, remember. No completed bios means, a stop on your promotion points.
[19:27] <@CO-Capt_Chardan> !dis
[19:27] <&ShipLCARS> Crew Dismissed!!
