<VAdmBlackthorne>

:: taps into the telemetry on his chair arm and watches the station gain altitude ::

 

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

:: Sitting at Ops, watching Telthis gain altitude, ready to spring into action once she levels out ::

 

<ENG_Ens_Ilaihr>

::After getting a communication from Lieutenant Quinn, has reversed the turbolift and is on his way back to engineering to work on the grappling units.

 

<NAV_Cdr_Harper>

:: leaning on her crush can drinking a tall glass of water, waiting for orders to fly again or not ::

 

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

Bridge:  Her ascent is slowing.

 

<XO_Cdr_TKirr>

:: has returned to her seat next to Blackthorne, watching from her own panel and occasionally glancing at the main viewer ::

 

<SCI_Cdt_TLira>

::In Engineering, looking back over the plans for the grappling units to clarify on a few parts::

 

<NAV_Cdr_Harper>

:: and by her crush can she means the second miner she rescued's crush can, borrowed for a while ::

 

<VAdmBlackthorne>

CSO: Ambient pressure?

 

<ENG_Ens_Ilaihr>

::Enters engineering, and walks up to Cadet T'Lira:: SCI: Ah, yes. I believe you are the science officer working on the grappler, are you not? Mr Quinn has been called away, and I have returned to assist you. ::He smiles::

 

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

CO: 28 bar and slowly falling.

 

<VAdmBlackthorne>

CSO: Fantastic. That will certainly buy some time.

 

<SCI_Cdt_TLira>

:: looks up :: ENG: Yes, I am. Could you assist me in determining exactly how to align the launchers for the grapplers?

 

<DoctorTav>

:: sits at his desk and watches the reports on the Telthis. He takes a moment and looks out his office window to where the nurses and aids go about continuing to keep Sickbay clean ::

 

<ENG_Ens_Ilaihr>

SCI: Ah yes, well, lets have a look at the design specifications.

 

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

Bridge: 27 bar and falling.

 

<NAV_Cdr_Harper>

:: finishes her water and starts to inspect the crush can, making sure that the craft is in fine shape after two abnormal flights ::

 

<SCI_Cdt_TLira>

:: looks over specs again and still feels very confused as to what is being displayed for the alignment sequences ::

 

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

Bridge:  The rate of ascent is decreasing as she nears equilibrium, but projections still show her leveling out at 24.6 bar.

 

<VAdmBlackthorne>

CSO: Excellent. Now to get her the rest of the way.

 

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

*SCI*  Wright to T'Lira.

 

<ENG_Ens_Ilaihr>

::Looks at the specifications:: SCI: Well, since we are using magnetic grapplers yes? We need to align the launchers targetting sequence to factor in the magnetic interference from the device itself. And compensate from the atmospheric disturbence.

 

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

Bridge: 25.5 bar and slowly falling.

 

<SCI_Cdt_TLira>

*CSO* T'Lira here sir. ENG: So the logical application would be to align for a disturbed yet magnetic atmosphere? Kill two birds with one stone, as it were? Or is that incorrect?

 

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

*SCI*  What's the status of the balloons and grapplers?

 

<SCI_Cdt_TLira>

*CSO* In progress, sir. I will inform you when they have been completed. I assume you want them done as soon as possible?

 

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

*SCI* As soon as possible sounds good, Cadet.  Let me know if I can assist.  Wright out.

 

ACTION>

The station enters the storm that the crush cans passed through on both their trips down.

 

<ENG_Ens_Ilaihr>

SCI: Your logical is sound Cadet. Surak himself would approve.

 

<ENG_Ens_Ilaihr>

<logic>

 

<SCI_Cdt_TLira>

ENG: Thank you, sir. I am... flattered. :: looks quickly at design plans to hide faint blush ::

 

<ENG_Ens_Ilaihr>

SCI: And there is no need to call, me, sir. Ilaihr will do fine. ::Nods at the young lady and smiles::

 

<SCI_Cdt_TLira>

ENG: Aye sir... Ilaihr.

 

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

Bridge: 24.6 bar and steady.

 

<VAdmBlackthorne>

CSO: As advertised.

 

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

CO: I aim to please.  :: grins ::

 

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

Bridge: The station does appear to be in a patch of atmospheric ...disturbance, I'm afraid.

 

<VAdmBlackthorne>

CSO: What sort of disturbance?

 

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

CO:  Looks like bit of good old-fashioned rough weather.

 

<VAdmBlackthorne>

Just what they needed...

 

<XO_Cdr_TKirr>

:: studies the station's condition on her miniconsole ::

 

ACTION>

Incoming hail from Telthis.

 

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

CO:  Telthis is hailing us.

 

<VAdmBlackthorne>

On screen.

 

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

:: complies ::

 

<XO_Cdr_TKirr>

OtherMiner>

:: appears on screen, a big smile on his face :: Bridge: Atlantis, the subspace field worked! Although that's one storm out there.

 

<VAdmBlackthorne>

*OM* Can the station handle it?

 

<XO_Cdr_TKirr>

OtherMiner>

:: pressing buttons and studying something off screen before looking back :: Bridge: We're stable for now, but we can't handle it for long. The station's been through a lot.

 

<VAdmBlackthorne>

*OM* We have crush cans ready to pull you and Miraak out, if necessary.

 

<XO_Cdr_TKirr>

OtherMiner>

Bridge: We're all right for now. We'd like to do what we can from here, but we thank you for standing by.

 

<VAdmBlackthorne>

If you have a way to heat the atmosphere below you, it could bring you a bit farther.

 

<ENG_Ens_Ilaihr>

::keeps working on the grappler calculations::

 

<XO_Cdr_TKirr>

OtherMiner>

:: frowns :: Bridge: Between being flat our on the subspace bubble and trying to keep this station from tearing itself apart, I haven't considered that.

 

<VAdmBlackthorne>

*OM* It's something to consider. We'll be here if you need to evacuate in a hurry.

 

<ENG_Ens_Ilaihr>

Self: Hopefully this all works.

 

<XO_Cdr_TKirr>

OtherMiner>

:: nods curtly :: Bridge: Thank you. Your efforts have meant all our lives.

 

<SCI_Cdt_TLira>

ENG: The launchers are calibrated and prepared.

 

<VAdmBlackthorne>

*OM* Glad to help. Atlantis out.

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

:: closes channel ::

 

<VAdmBlackthorne>

:: turns to T'Kirr :: XO: We need some progress on those grapplers and balloons, in a hurry.

 

<ENG_Ens_Ilaihr>

SCI: Excellent. Would you like the honour of telling the bridge?

 

<XO_Cdr_TKirr>

CO: Agreed.

 

<VAdmBlackthorne>

:: looks around :: Bridge: Who knows how long they have with that storm battering them.

 

<SCI_Cdt_TLira>

*SCI* Sir, the launchers for the grapplers have been calibrated and prepared for launch.

 

<SCI_Cdt_TLira>

*CSO*

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

*SCI*  Excellent.  How close are you to building a working set?  We need to deploy them urgently.

 

<XO_Cdr_TKirr>

:: listens to CSO and SCI, pleased at SCI's timing ::

 

<SCI_Cdt_TLira>

ENG: How close is the actual grappler to completion?

 

<ENG_Ens_Ilaihr>

SCI: I'm not sure. We should be just about ready to roll these things out.

 

<SCI_Cdt_TLira>

*CSO* The final product will be ready shortly. Stand by.

 

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

*SCI* Excellent.  Keep me posted.

 

<VAdmBlackthorne>

Bridge: Timely. Now, how were these balloon/grappler combos going to be delivered down to the station?

<SCI_Cdt_TLira>

:: After plenty of work, the final grapplers are complete :: *CSO* Sir, the grapplers are ready for launch.

 

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

*SCI* And the balloons?

 

<ENG_Ens_Ilaihr>

SCI: Right then, I should probably start installing these on the ballons.

 

<SCI_Cdt_TLira>

ENG: Aye. *CSO* In a moment.

 

<CSO_Lt_Wright>

*SCI*  Do they need any further testing or are they ready for deployment?

 

<SCI_Cdt_TLira>

*CSO* They are being installed now.

 

<ENG_Ens_Ilaihr>

::Moves off to begin attaching the grapplers to the ballons::

<VAdmBlackthorne>

XO: Perhaps we could have the crush cans deliver the packages down to the station.

 

<XO_Cdr_TKirr>

CO: They would be the ideal transports.

 

<VAdmBlackthorne>

Have engineering check into it.

 

<VAdmBlackthorne>

XO^

 

<XO_Cdr_TKirr>

*ENG* T'Kirr to Engineering.

 

<ENG_Ens_Ilaihr>

*XO*: Engineering her Commander

 

<ENG_Ens_Ilaihr>

<here>

<XO_Cdr_TKirr>

*ENG* When the grappler is complete, load it into the crush cans for delivery to the station.

 

<ENG_Ens_Ilaihr>

*XO*: Excellent idea commander, I'll get right on that. We're just attaching them to the ballons now.
