Capt_DevonCummings Evening everyone, hope you had a good week, or as good as it's been lately.
First of all, I'd like to congratulate Chloe for all the logs she's been doing.
Any questions about the brief?

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain no sir

Ens Gaavr Have not seen it yet

Capt_DevonCummings Do so now, please, Gaavr.

Ensign Chloe Waters ???
Is that sarcasm?

Capt_DevonCummings No.
Ensign Chloe Waters I haven't done any logs

❙❙ Karlie Waters It's actually Alexi that's been doing the logs.

Capt_DevonCummings My bad.

Ens Gaavr Read, but on phone

Ens Alexi Michelle ::blushes::

Capt_DevonCummings Okay Gaavr.
We'll start with the landing party on the alien ship.

**---Being Sim---**

Capt_DevonCummings ::On the bridge.::
+Edwards+ Commander. Have the survivors stand by for transport.

Ensign Chloe Waters ::in her chair::

Matthew Edwards @+Devon+ Aye sir.

Capt_DevonCummings +Security+ Security team to transporter room 1.

Ens Alexi Michelle @::Maintaining her distance from the Blue nympho guy:: Sir, I'd like to stay here and do a little investigating. Might be able to find out more about those pirates.

Capt_DevonCummings +Medical+ Medical team to transporter room one.

Matthew Edwards @Ok everyone. Let’s all gather together. We’re beaming aboard the ship. ::looks over at Zyla::

Capt_DevonCummings Zyla>::Smiles at the human.::

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain @Seamus>;;helping the Demari get whatever they need from the ship packed up and ready to transport to the Ares for transport to their home;;

Capt_DevonCummings ::Once security and medical are in place...:: +Taps+ Transporter room, energize.

Matthew Edwards @Hope we get better acquainted once you settle on the Ares. +Devon+ We’re ready Captain.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain> on the Ares, helping find quarters for the Demari for their trip home;;

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::stands at her science console, running the scans::

Ens Gaavr @:: waiting to beam over ::

Capt_DevonCummings The landing party are the first to beam over.::
::Enters the TR.::

Ens Alexi Michelle @ ::Frowns and shakes her head:: Sir... I'd like to ... ::gets beamed back and sighs::

Capt_DevonCummings ::Looks at the security and medical people in the TR.::

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain @Seamus> ;;gets holopics of their ship's systems to study at a more convenient time and retro-create their drive, at least in theory;;

Capt_DevonCummings Commander. What can you tell me about our passengers.

Matthew Edwards ::beams back on the ship:: You were saying Ensign?

Ens Alexi Michelle ::steps off the transporter pad :: Security, watch yourselves. These people are a bit overly... friendly

Ensign Chloe Waters (( ::secretly waits for all the men to get... distracted:: ))

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::watches the scans for any changes::

Capt_DevonCummings Can you explain that, ensign?

Ens Gaavr :: wonders where that woman is ::

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain @Seamus>:: puts a tag on the Demarians' gear to send to a convenient cargo bay;;

Ens Alexi Michelle ::looks at the Captain:: They seem to want us to like them, I mean really like them.

Matthew Edwards Well sir... the people are called the Demari. This particular group is led by a woman named Zyla. They are a religious bunch and were on a religious voyage until they were attacked.

Ens Gaavr I wish to hear their language more.

Ensign Chloe Waters ::remaining quiet::

Capt_DevonCummings Guest quarters have been arranged on deck 6. I want them to stay in their quarters for the time being. And I want medical to check them.

Ens Alexi Michelle ::rolls eyes and mumbles under her breath:: religious my royal patoot!

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain> ;;has a block of rooms set aside for the Demarians' use while on the Ares;;

Capt_DevonCummings ::Looks to the TRchief.:: Commence transport.
::Zyla, Erna and Anu are among the first to be transported.::
Zyla>::Looks around after she materializes.::

Matthew Edwards Welcome aboard ::looks at Zyla::

Capt_DevonCummings ::Steps forward.:: I am Captain Devon Cummings. Welcome aboard.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain> starts scanning the Demarians as they come on board to ensure their health as well as protect the crew;;

Ens Gaavr :: sees Erna ::

Capt_DevonCummings Zyla> ::Steps down off the padd.:: did we get here?

Ens Alexi Michelle :: frowns at the sight of Anu:: He would be one of the first.

Capt_DevonCummings It's called a transporter. That's how we move from the ship to another ship or to a planet.
Anu>::Sees Alexi and smiles.::

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain @Seamus>;; signals that he is ready to send over the Demarians' possessions;;

Capt_DevonCummings Action: The second wave beams aboard.

Ens Alexi Michelle Captain, I would like to request to return to the ship and investigate. Perhaps we can discover who the attacker are.

Capt_DevonCummings ::Points to security.:: We have quarters arranged for you. These officers will escort you there. I must ask that you remain in your quarters for the time being.

Ens Gaavr :: moves to Erna :: I can help you get settled.

Capt_DevonCummings Negative ensign. Once they are aboard, we'll be leaving.

Ens Alexi Michelle But... ::wants to argue but knows it will be futile:: Understood, Sir

Capt_DevonCummings Zyla>::Smiles and nods.:: Of course captain, we will follow your rules.

Ens Gaavr Really? The language has some uncommon attributes.. alright.

Capt_DevonCummings Erna> I would like to help you learn our language.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain> ;;is having some trouble concentrating but tries to keep working as best he can;;

Matthew Edwards With your permission sir, I’d like to escort our guests to their quarters.

Capt_DevonCummings ::Nods:: Of course. ::Nods to security to start escorting the rest to their quarters.::

Ens Alexi Michelle ::keeps her distance as best she can in the confined space of the transporter room::

Capt_DevonCummings ::Walks over to Sivain.:: Have you detected anything?

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::She studied the scans, making sure they were accurate::

Alexi Michelle SECURITY> ::Begins escorting the Demarians to their quarters in groups of four 'guests' for every two officers::

Matthew Edwards ::walks with the Demarians and with Zyla::

Capt_DevonCummings ::Starts to feel....strange.::

Ens Alexi Michelle Captain, shall I post a guard on our guests?

Capt_DevonCummings Action: Their luggage is beamed to a cargo hold, and Seamus returns to the ship.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain> yes, sir, a very high level of pheremones that seem to increase the sex drive in unsuspecting species, similar to the Deltans, in some ways. otherwise they are incredibly healthy for having gone through their ordeal

Capt_DevonCummings ::Nods to Michelle.::
::To Sivain.:: Can you develop something to ease the effects it's having on us?

Ens Alexi Michelle ::takes that as a yes and orders the guards to stand at every guest room::

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain> I can try sir

Ens Gaavr Listening can be enough Erna.

Ens Alexi Michelle Somehow I have a feeling their ordeal was not as dire as they made it sound.

Capt_DevonCummings Make it a priority. ::More security arrives.::

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain> Aye sir may I be excused to attend to that?

Capt_DevonCummings Yes. ::More Demari beam over and are escorted to their quarters.::

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain>;;heads for the medical labs to get busy to create an aerosol to put into the ventilation system to counteract the pheremones;;

❙❙ Karlie Waters How are you holding, Chloe? ::she said looking up from her scans::

Ens Gaavr :: Watches Erna be escorted away :: Perhaps later then Erna?

Capt_DevonCummings ::Taps the comms button on the wall.:: Attention all hands. While the Demari are on board, all hands are ordered to avoid contact with them. Security will be posted at each end of the deck. Captain out.

Ensign Chloe Waters ::looking confused:: I am not holding anything at the moment.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Seamus> ;;heads back for ME to put the Demarians rooms on HEPA filters(or the equivalent) to scrub the air in addition to whatever else might be in the works;;

Capt_DevonCummings Erna>I would like that.:: Smiles at him.::

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::She gave a little laugh:: I mean feeling....

Ens Alexi Michelle Captain, I know this may sound harsh, but I think our guests need to kept in quarantine as well.

Capt_DevonCummings Gaavr. Return to your post.

Matthew Edwards ::hears the Captain's message and looked at Zyla:: Well, that's a shame.

Ens Gaavr Alright. :: Looks disappointed ::

Ensign Chloe Waters My neck feels more normalized as a result of this new chair.

Capt_DevonCummings Lock them in their quarters until the doctor finds a cure.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain> begins working on an aerosol neutralizer for the Demarians' pheremones;;

Capt_DevonCummings ::Leave the TR and heads back to the bridge.::

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::She gave a releif sigh:: Hopefully, it will help you with your navigation much eaiser.

Ens Alexi Michelle Yes, Sir ::begins processing the rooms and puts a security lock on each one so only she or the Captain can open the doors::

Capt_DevonCummings ::Enters the bridge.:: Helm, set a course to the Demari home world.

Ens Gaavr :: takes comms ::

Ensign Chloe Waters It is not necessary to... ::she rotates her chair and extends her arms out forward, leaning forwards at an uncomfortable looking angle::

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain> starts using a neutralizer for Deltan pheremones to check that as a control as to what to do about the Demarian variety;;

Capt_DevonCummings +T+ Commander Edwards report to the bridge.

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::quietly looks back down at her scans::

Ensign Chloe Waters ::nods and returns to her normal position, starts tapping at her console::

Ens Alexi Michelle ::returns to the bridge after checking that the guards are in position::

Ensign Chloe Waters Course has been input.

Capt_DevonCummings Zyla>::Hears the order. Looks at Edwards.:: Does this mean you have to leave now?

Matthew Edwards ::looks at Zyla:: Yes unfortunately.

Capt_DevonCummings Zyla>::Touches his cheek.::
Action: Transporter room tells the bridge that the last of the passengers has been transported aboard.
Helm, engage at warp 6.
::His head feels...for the lack of a better word...foggy.::

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::notices the Captain:: Are you okay, sir?

Ensign Chloe Waters Engaging.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Seamus> has the cargo bay with the Demarians' possessions' air vented to space to try to cut down the amount of pheremones that remain on their stuff;;

Ensign Chloe Waters ::taps a key::

Capt_DevonCummings ::Looks at Karlie.:: Yes.

Ens Alexi Michelle ::makes sure the last of their 'guests' are properly housed for the trip::

Matthew Edwards ::he smiled and touched her cheek:: Maybe... I can visit you later. When I come off duty.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain> ;;keeps working on trying to find a neutralizer for the Demarian pheremones;;

Ens Gaavr I would need to hear more of the language in case something arises when we get to their homeworld

Capt_DevonCummings Zyla>That would be nice...if your captain allows it.
Do your best, Ens Gaavr.

Matthew Edwards Definitely. ::makes his way to the Bridge::

Capt_DevonCummings Action> All the Demari's are secured in their quarters.

Ens Alexi Michelle ::Glances at the Captain and starts to worry, glances to Gaavr:: I really think you should keep your distance from them.

IIII CaptainDevonCummings Action>Guards posted at both ends of the corridor.

Matthew Edwards ::steps onto the Bridge::

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::not having have met them, she looked to Alexi:: Something wrong about them?

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain> ;;finds a possible antidote but the side effects would severely hamper ship efficiency for a period of three days;;

Capt_DevonCummings ((How severe?))

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain ( No work being done at all due to severe sleepiness)

Ens Alexi Michelle ::watches as Edwards enters the bridge:: Yes. At least I believe there is more than meet the eye with this group

Capt_DevonCummings (Yikes)

Matthew Edwards (dang. Is it worth it though?)

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::she looked concerned:: Physical or mental?

Ensign Chloe Waters ::genuinely curious, though it probably comes across as something else with her translator:: Would you prefer open hostility?

Capt_DevonCummings Commander.

Matthew Edwards Sir.

Capt_DevonCummings I've ordered that our guests be kept in isolation until further notice.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain> ;;follows up along this trail, trying to mitigate the side effects while increasing the effectiveness of the second generation of antidote;;

Ens Alexi Michelle ::chuckles:: Actually yes. At least that I know how to fight. But fighting off the ability to make someone..... want .. umm... yeah.. not so much

Ensign Chloe Waters I do not understand.

Ens Gaavr Captain, may I speak with Erna via comms?

Capt_DevonCummings Yes, ensign, you may.

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::she looked more concerned:: Captain, Should I help medical with my science knowledge?

Matthew Edwards Understood sir.

Capt_DevonCummings ::To Karlie.:: If you feel you can be of help, approved.

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::She nodded, giving a worried glance at the command team, especially one in particular, before leaving::

Ens Alexi Michelle ::moves over to Chloe and whispers:: The have sex pheremones

Matthew Edwards ::looks over to see at the star charts::

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Seamus> checks the levels of pheremone pollution in the cargo bay in case they need to get anything from there without disturbing the Demarians' possessions;;
and is pleased to note they have dropped in levels significantly;;

Ensign Chloe Waters I fail to see why it was necessary to deliver this information in such a quiet manner. ::her translator speaking at an unchanged volume level from before::

Ens Gaavr +Erna+ This is have. Are you there?

Capt_DevonCummings ::Pressed the comm button on his chair.:: Attention all hands. If anyone feels anyway ill or a sense of being detached, you will report to sickbay. And for the time being, all off duty personnel will confine themselves to their quarters. Captain out.
Erna> +Gaavr+ I am here.

Ensign Chloe Waters ::looking to the captain:: Sir?

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::enters Sickbay:: May I help Sivain?

Capt_DevonCummings Helm, time to the Demari homeworld?

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain> ;;nods seeing Karlie come into the medical labs:: Welcome, Karlie, and thank you

Ensign Chloe Waters 5 days, two hours, six minutes and 47 seconds, at current speed, sir.

Capt_DevonCummings Increase to warp 6.5.

Ensign Chloe Waters ::blinks::

Ens Alexi Michelle Honestly, because it is a subject that makes me uncomfortable ::shakes head and return to her station::

Ensign Chloe Waters Acknowledged.
::giving Alexi a perplexed look as she goes:: I fail to understand why.

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::She nodded as she started to help the doctor with her scientiic knowledge::

Matthew Edwards Well, least we can know these people more when we arrive at their planet.

Ens Alexi Michelle Thank god. The faster we get them home tha faster we can get home ourselves!

Ens Gaavr +Erna+ we can speak here...

Ensign Chloe Waters ::looking to the captain:: Sir?

Matthew Edwards Least for a bit till we have to continue our trip home. ::nods and walks around the Bridge::

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain Sivain> ;;shows Karlie what he's been doing so she can help with running the gas chromatograph and other sampling equipment;;

Ens Alexi Michelle ::shrugs at Chloe:: Perhaps it is because I am half Vulcan, who knows!

**Pause Sim**

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain ;;paused;; x2

Ensign Chloe Waters ((::pokes Cummings::))

❙❙ Karlie Waters ::froze::

Ens Alexi Michelle ::Paused::

Capt_DevonCummings Good job everyone. We'll pick it up from here next time between sims.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain ;;rh;;

Capt_DevonCummings Yes?

Ensign Chloe Waters Eh... I can probably remember until then.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain how close am I to finding a workable antidote to their pheremones?

Capt_DevonCummings Enough to try some tests....then after that, you can perfect the antidote.

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain
ok ty

Alexi Michelle (with our luck you'll find it on day 4 LOL)

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain :P

Capt_DevonCummings If that's the case, there will be a lot of funny acting people on the ship. lol

Capt_DevonCummings Commander, say your peace then you can dismiss the crew.

❙❙ Karlie Waters Hope it's faster with Karlie's help x-D

❙ Seamus MacDoughall & Sivain same here
