Devon Cummings: Good evening everyone. Hope you all had a good week.

Sgt Major Calder: :: eyes Keera ::
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: meh
Devon Cummings: I hope we can cheer you up tonight.
Everyone read the brief?

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: tytyty
❙❙❙ Commander Matthew Edwards: I've had a long, tiring week. I am half asleep at the moment
Devon Cummings: Well...wake up mister!!

Chef JC Gibbs: ::attn::

Devon Cummings: LOL

❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: Yes, read.

Devon Cummings: Any questions on the brief?

❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: LtBradley:No sir
❙ Keera Rey: No, Sir
Matthew Edwards: No questions sir

Devon Cummings: Then let's begin.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: no sir

Devon Cummings: Begin sim.

On the bridge of the alien ship.

Sgt Major Calder: :: His phase rifle out, waiting for trouble ::
Devon Cummings: "Someone get the ship's logs and star charts back to the Ares."
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One:"Looking at the captain."
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: ::moves out into the hall to keep an eye out in the corridors.::
Matthew Edwards: ::walks around the Bridge of the alien ship::
❙ Keera Rey: ::She begins to work on getting the star charts::
Matthew Edwards: "Ensign Gaavr. Would you do the honors of getting the logs?"
Devon Cummings: "One. Would you please go to engineering and help my engineer?"
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: Seamus--on Ares, stashing everything he can wherever they can
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One:"Yes captain." He turns and leaves."
Ens Gaavr: I am attempting sir. I believe they are encrypted, so our processors will take a while...or never.
❙ Keera Rey: ::She nods with Gaavr:: It's in their language, maybe see If we can decipher first, then go from there?
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: I'll escort, One. ::moves to follow.::
Ens Gaavr: Sure, there are some open files which I can have the translator take a whack at.
Devon Cummings: "Mr Edwards. I want you to organize a search of the ship. See if there is anything we can use."
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: Sivain-- also helps Move materials from the ship to the Aries(edited)
Sgt Major Calder: :: Watched Gaavr and Keera ::
Devon Cummings: Concentrate on anything that we might be able to use or trade. Weapons, especially torpedoes are a priority.
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: Sivain-- in particular if looking for thermostabilized food stuffs that could be used by the Aries crew
Matthew Edwards: "Yes sir." ::contacts the Ares to bring a team over::
Devon Cummings: Mr Bradley, assist the commander.
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: Why do you think you were the only one left, One?
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: LtBradley:Aye sir.
Ens Gaavr: The one thing about languages is decoding the symbols from the sounds. Listening to a language is one thing, writing it is another.
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One:According to the ship's records, the others died when the ship was transported here.
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: Seamus-- set up tubular Bridges between the ships to send the supplies through to the Aries

Devon Cummings: Action> One and Valarig arrive in engineering.

Ens Gaavr: I mean the UT is doing well with One, but I think that was more on his end than ours.
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: Well, I understand that, you said it before. That's not exactly a why though, if you can think of any reason. As opposed to anyone else. ::Giving a glance at Engineering.::
❙ Keera Rey: ::She pointed to an alien word.:: See if that will work for the code. ::She showed Gaavr the wear of the prints on the screens:: Because of the wear on this screen and location. ::she smiled::
Ens Gaavr: :: Starting a transfer of the logs, may be wise to decode later ::
Devon Cummings: I think One is able to translate our language without the UT.
Ens Gaavr: If they use a transmetal kind of authentication... well I don't have metal fingers.
Sgt Major Calder: :: Walking around the bridge, tossing a glance to Keera ::
Ens Gaavr: That Cadler fella sure is watching us a lot.
Devon Cummings: One One is finished in engineering, I'll ask him if he can translate the alien logs.
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: Seamus-- keeps stocking stuff wherever he can making sure the Torpedoes go to weapons
Ens Gaavr: :: Was not the code. Maybe One could help ::
Devon Cummings: Bradley is assisting with the transfer of materials.
Matthew Edwards: ::Matt and his team begins searching the alien ship for useful supplies::
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: One?
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One:Yes?
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: Why do you think you instead of someone else?
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: Sivain-- continuous bringing things over from the alien ship stacking them in areas where they would be best served
Ens Gaavr: :: Gaavr laughs :: He's looking at you. Interesting.
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One>The question does not make sense to me.
Chef JC Gibbs: ::hears through the grape vine that they are transfering things from the alien ship:: +T+ @❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings sir permission to come aboard and see if there is anything in the alien pantry that we can use?
Devon Cummings: +Gibbs+Permission granted, chef.
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: I mean, why do you think you were not killed. As opposed to someone else being saved instead.
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: Sivain--++chef++ already doing that cookie
LtBradley: Finds a stash of weapons.
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings:
One:I was off line when the others died.
Chef JC Gibbs: +T+ thank you sir. ::snaps his fingers at two of his stewards:: +Sivian+ Hold tight i'm coming with a few stewards what is your location on the ship?
❙ Keera Rey: ::She pulls on Gaavr's ear:: let me try.
Ens Gaavr: Sure thing
LtBradley: +T+Bradley to captain.
Devon Cummings: +T+Go ahead.
Matthew Edwards: ::makes his way to what appears to be the armory::
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: Well that would explain it then, you weren't detected as a life form or power source.
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: Sivain--++chef++ between the docking port and their galley bringing a transport full of food stuff for you
❙ Keera Rey: ::She sits down at the console and studies it closer, hitting what she felt like were the code::
LtBradley: +T+I found what seems to be some torpedoes, captain. I'm running scans on them now to see if they are like ours, sir.
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One:That is possible.
Devon Cummings: +T+Keep me informed, lieutenant. Captain out.
Chef JC Gibbs: +Sivian+ before you bring them onboard let me look them over to make sure we can eat them.
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: Seamus-- keeps bringing in more materials for all over the ship
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: Lets get on making that power source shall we?
Devon Cummings: One starts working on the aux power supply.
Chef JC Gibbs: ::hurries his stewards to grab what ever they can to load the food and hurries them to the docking collar::
Matthew Edwards: "Wow. Nice armory."
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: Sivain-- already checking them for edibility as I find them
Devon Cummings: One looks at Valarig.
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One:You do not look like the others.
Matthew Edwards: "Alright. Let's get these weapons on board. Including those torpedoes." ::helps stack some of the weapons and moves them to the Ares::
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: Yes? ::Just keeping an eye out.:: No, I'm not. My race is Romulan.
Devon Cummings: Status of logs and star charts?
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One:Romulans.
Ens Gaavr: Any progess? I have a good portion downloaded.
Chef JC Gibbs: ::enters the alien ship and moves to Sivain:: Being edible is one thing, figuring how to make them taste good is another.
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One:Are there many races where you come from? Are there other life forms like me?
❙ Keera Rey: ::She is getting frustrated:: I can't get into this one.
Ens Gaavr: Either we are not smart enough, or we are as smart as we can be, but they are smarter.
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: ::Gives a nod:: Yes. An off shoot of Vulcans. Many many races. Though, I'm the only one I know of in Starfleet. I'm not exactly sure what you are, so I can't answer that. Maybe?
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One: Your captain called me an android.
Ens Gaavr: :: he looked at her, then to Calder, than back to her ::
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: Corwin:Checks out the samples sent over to the ship.
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: Speculation, but if you are, that means maybe not. We have artificial life forms but nothing so advanced as you if that's the case.
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One: Picks up a large, heavy piece of machinery.
Chef JC Gibbs: ::Starts to pick throught the foods handing it to the stewards:: This looks like a eggplant. This an onion
Ens Gaavr: We may have to have One help us.
Devon Cummings: ::Looks at Calder, looking at Rey.::
Matthew Edwards: ::returns to the alien ship and moves more weapons to the Ares::
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: ::Raises an eyebrow:: That's certainly some set of arms there, One.
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One: I am finished. Once this is moved to your ship, and once you apply the material on your ship, your ship will not be detected.
Devon Cummings: +T+Captain to Valarig. If One is done, we can use him back on the bridge.
❙ Keera Rey: ::Finally, she gets into the system:: there! It worked, now to try to get into the star chart section. ::she heads over to that station::
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: ++Cummings++ We actually just finished. Its ready to be moved to the ship and installed. We're heading back that way. ::Motions his head to One to follow so they could get back up there.::
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One> ::Follows Valarig.::
One> The captain, he is your leader?
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: He is our Commanding Officer, yes.
Chef JC Gibbs: ::continues to seach the food stuffs:: You have a scanner on you? Not sure what that is? ::asking Sivian::
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One> You will have to bring that machine I created for you to your ship and have your engineer hook it up to your engines.
Devon Cummings: ACTION: One and Valarig return to the alien bridge.
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: If you're going to come with us, it actually would be easier for you to carry it and be there so something isn't messed up, wouldn't it be.
Devon Cummings: ::Sees One arrive.:: One, can you assist in the transfer and translation of the ships logs?
Matthew Edwards: ::cleans out the armory and nods:: We did good people. Let's see what else we can find. ::moves further into the ship::
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One: As you wish, captain.::Moves to the terminal, and his hands flash across the terminal, faster then the others can see.:: Completed. The logs have been downloaded and translated into your language. As well as the star charts, captain.
❙ Keera Rey: ::she looked shocked::
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: ::Just kind of watches while One is doing all that.::
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One> Captain. My scans indicate that your crew has taken 97% of the material from this ship. Once the have completed, and your ship moves far enough away, I will reactive the self destruct.
Devon Cummings: Thank you, you have been very helpful.
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One> I, of course, must remain on my ship.
Chef JC Gibbs: ::takes what they need and sends it to the pantry to boster there stocks::
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: But why? Captain Cummings already offered that you can come with us.
Devon Cummings: ::Looks at him.:: You want to remain? You will be destroyed. You can come with us. We want you to come with us.
Ens Gaavr: Well, that solves that.
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One> My programming indicates that I must also be destroyed.
Devon Cummings: Can you override that programming?
Matthew Edwards: ::Matt returns to the bridge of the alien ship and looked at One:: What?
❙ Keera Rey: ::She moved close to Calder:: They're noticing you staring... Keep your cool and you can have some Whiskey later ::She whispered::
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One> It can only be over ridden by my commanding officer.
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: We're both different, One. I shouldn't be here. I shouldn't be in Starfleet but I am. You can fix that, you can refuse the norm that you think you have to adhere to. ::Gives a thought.:: You can make one of us the Commanding Officer. That way it can be overridden.
Devon Cummings: Would you accept me as your new commanding officer?
Sgt Major Calder: (w) In my defense, there's little to do at the moment.
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One> ::Thinks.::
One> That would be acceptable.
Devon Cummings: Excellent. Commander, have the teams finish up and return to the shuttles. One. That device you were going to make for us, can it be loaded on one of our shuttles?
::Looks at Valarig.:: Can it be loaded, lieutenant?
❙ Keera Rey: ::She whispered back:: just watch on other things.
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: One> It cannot, captain. Now that the protective screen in offline, you may transport it to your ship.
Devon Cummings: Lt Valarig. Can our transporters handle that?
Sgt Major Calder: :: Calder was confused a bit. She proved hostile earlier, but perhaps it was the drink talking ::
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: Its heavy as hell, he can pick it up by himself, that's why I suggested it. The transporters might be able to handle it I suppose.

Devon Cummings: +T+Captain to Ares. Stand by to beam some equipment right to engineering.
+T+Aye sir.

Pause sim.

LtBradley: ::AA::
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: ::paws::
Portman> ::paws::
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: Paused X2
❙ Keera Rey: ::paused::

Devon Cummings: Good job all. Seems like there is some good posting material here. Hint hint.

Matthew Edwards: ::paused::

Devon Cummings: Next week, we'll finish here, and will be back on the Ares, and we'll be far enough away when the alien ship self destructs.
So TBS will be...hmmm.....30 minutes? Afterwards, we can see what we salvaged this time.
Sgt Major Calder: R-Rating?
Devon Cummings: I assume we're all over 18 here?
Sgt Major Calder: :: throws away several chapters ::
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: Most log ratings should be PG-13
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: We already know my stance on ratings and people being mature adults. I'm fine with R rating.
❙❙❙ Commander Matthew Edwards: Same here.
Devon Cummings: Does everyone agree?
Sgt Major Calder: I can't think of anything that would get to that... would just do a :: fade to black:: and place the rest behind a pay wall
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: Mmhmm. R rating, but going to X fade to black.
❙ Keera Rey: ::looks annoyed::
Devon Cummings: You can't be too explicit....fade to black is okay.
❙ Keera Rey: Some r rated movies seem to be so x rating passing that it's bad.
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: True but unfortunately there are some minors in the USF that can read other postings than The Sims they're on
Devon Cummings: Or leave some things to the imagination.
Matthew Edwards: True that
❙ Keera Rey: Don't post it to the site?
Devon Cummings: So it's...."Jane and Bob entered their captain, started kissing, undressing, go into bed and..fade to black. Next morning...
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: Its in the rules, the sims can pick their rating, while USF is generally PG-13. Its still up to the command team.
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: cabin not captain
Sgt Major Calder: Just a log of all fade to blacks...
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: Lol Captain you are really making it risque there
❙❙❙❙ CaptainDevonCummings: Cummins:We'll do it this way. If unsure, send me the log first and I will decide what can or can't be written.
Sgt Major Calder: The Captain enters the bridge...:: fade to black ::
Devon Cummings: Only if the captain is naked, Calder.
Any other business?
Sgt Major Calder: That's the sim where the washer is out of commission, but no one told the captain
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: Captain are you going to place a section in the logs for the explicit and call it "Back to Black"?
❙ Keera Rey: Karlie is missing out. ::she mocks annoyed::
Devon Cummings: That I will have to think about.
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: Very well sir just a suggestion
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: Portman> ::Is waiting for Matt in his quarters. What she was wearing left nearly nothing to the imagination. Just the excitement of his reaction was making her nipples hard. Once he got there, it was pretty obvious where they were going. Moaning a little as he trug her to the bedroom. Fade to Black.::
Devon Cummings: Tell you what, I will have to ask the E-Board and get their opinion.
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: See, there is a better example.
❙ Keera Rey: That's borderline Xrating.
Devon Cummings: Disagree Rey.....that's R to me.
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: Its R.
❙ Keera Rey: They don't even do that far in the independent deck category role play servers.
Sgt Major Calder: Night all
Devon Cummings: Night Calder.
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: Ni ni Calder.
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: Night Calder
Devon Cummings: Let me give it some thought, and when I decide, I will let everyone know, okay?
❙❙❙ Commander Matthew Edwards: Good night
Matthew Edwards: Sounds good
Devon Cummings: Commander, anything to add?
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: Cap you may have to find some way to age lock it too
Devon Cummings: I don't know it I can do that.
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: There's a setting that it wars NSFW
❙ Keera Rey: For here? We're adults.
❙❙ Lt Valarig- <<<●) CPO Portman: You have to click on approve or decline to read the content.
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: I know I was just teasing about the "Back to Black"
Devon Cummings: Whole issue is, Rey, what if a minor shows up and reads it?
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: And we do have some among the fleet
Devon Cummings: Let me talk with the e-board and get some guidence.
❙ Keera Rey: Ah, We do like other discords, we set roles for them and us.
A role for guest. to see certain rooms. the roles we have, and the everyone role to see nothing and the 18+ role to see the nsfw, marking it as such with channel.
Devon Cummings: I created a fade to black channel and gave just us the ability to open it.
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: Okay
Matthew Edwards: Awesome
Devon Cummings: Okay.....commander, you may dismiss the crew.
Matthew Edwards: Yes
Great job tonight everyone. Hope you all had fun. Hope to see you all next week. Have a good and safe week.

LCARS: Dismissed

Devon Cummings: Night all.
❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain: Night y'all

Devon Cummings: People...please...keep the logs to R rated please.
