Just saw the Hobbit and I have to say that I loved the movie. I did not find it slow at any point. I thought the additions that PJ made were actually well thought out.

He seems to be setting up the battle of Dol Guldur, which I think would be in the third movie.

Subject: this and that

Rocinante Cargo Bay, 8:32-45 pm ST

"What have you taken?" Willow asked the girl softly, so her voice wouldn't carry to the elder Amber. "You've had a bit too much, love, we'd better get you to the infirmary so we can bring you down. Was it dust? How much did you have?"

Amber smiled back at the doctor, "Just love. nothing but love. It is what the world needs now." She reached out and touched the back of Willows Neck but Willow feel something sharp and twisted away, grabbing Sunshine's hand as she did. There was a device on her finger, it looked some sort of neural transmitter but the young lady snatched her hand away before Willow could get a good look.

Circling carefully around masses of passengers, Willow and Amber Sunshine were passing the cargo bay hatchway, Willow glancing down it reflexively, when she was startled to hear her proper name twice in one day.

"Sunipta? Is that really you? Sunipta, my precious, the fates themselves brought us together...I knew we couldn't be parted. I don't understand, Sunni, what are you doing here? You really turned me down for...this?"

Willow couldn't answer, the ship rippled beneath her feet before she heard the explosion; already off balance from being grabbed by Bridges, she fell into his arms, and he stumbled, pulling her to the floor as he fell.

She used her Aikido lessons to use his fall to her advantage, landing on him and using her hands to push herself back up. She scrambled to her feet in time to see Sifu fall from the stairway to land heavily on the cold metal of the cargo bay floor. She left all grace behind as she grabbed Sunshine by the arm to pull the girl through the crowd to where her passenger lay still.

She let go of her un-protesting companion long enough to drop to her knees by Sifu's side, and pulled on another pair of gloves. Carefully, she examined the gash on the side of his head; it was bleeding freely, but the wound itself didn't look severe enough to be the cause of Sifu's unconsciousness. She delicately lifted an eyelid and confirmed her worst fear: the pupil was completely open, the black engulfing the brown iris.

"We need to get him to the infirmary. NOW!" Willow called, then looked around at the people milling around. "You, there!" she commanded two men who were of the same relative height, and made the mistake of catching her eyes, "Grab that backboard up against the wall and bring it here. I need you to carry this man where I tell you, and keep him perfectly level. His feet cannot be higher than his head... don'ma? "

The two men standing on either side of the man in the white tuxedo looked around and then at their employer. He nodded at them and made a hand gesture of impatience so they both did exactly as Willow ordered. They seemed quite used to taking orders so Willow found them to be very apt orderlies. As they brought Sifu into the infirmary, John was already starting the scanning equipment and the bed was cleared and waiting for the patent.

Ash watched as the henchmen left as he spoke to the two men that ma pointed out to him. “Sirs, you seem to have these folks respect, I sure could use some help keeping everyone close and calm. This isn’t going to be easy and if folk don’t just stay put for a while…well we aren’t safe yet. Now I ain’t no diplomat and it’s my job to keep this ship and crew safe so these folks comfort ain’t high on my list. I won’t stand by and watch someone being selfish put my ship at risk, so I need your help to get that point across. Them folk got to understand they’re alive and the crew that got them off ain’t. If’n they want to stay that way they just need to stay quiet and calm.”

The Lord nodded appreciatively, "We would be more than willing to help in any way young man."

"Right! ship shape and all that, what what." Havelock replied mysteriously as if that actually made sense.

Asher turned as the man in the white tux came up to him with a determined stride. He smiled a grim smile and offered his hand to shake. "Asher is it? I am Matheson. James Matheson. Are you head of security of this vessel?"

(Assuming a positive response)

"You need to know that you have a thief on board your ship. The young lady with the brown hair holding the silver attaché case? She stole that from the ship and it is my property."

(assuming a question about proving that)

"Naturally. I can unlock that case and I doubt seriously that she can. Now how do yo uwisj to proceed with this?"

Rocinante Cockpit, 9:00 pm ST

Captain Wyatt Sung sat in the second pilots chair of the bridge and listened to the reports,

Wolf: Right now the drive pod on the port side is completely nonresponsive. Can Tess land with one? Yes, but it will be a bumpy landing as she has no VTOL. You don;t know how damaged it is until you can look at it.

The main reactor for the pulse drive (which is the one on the stern that glows) has a micro fracture in the core containment. the more you fly, the bigger it gets. To fix this Wolf has to shut the engines down completely and be on the ground.

The primary buffer panel is damaged. (This was the part that flew off Serenity and the start of the movie) Without it, power is not evenly distributed so you need to fix that. Again, you need to land to do so but you can compensate for it in the mean time.

Tess: She can get to the moon in four hours however when you get there you will be landing with one drive pod functioning. This will be dicey as she will have to compensate and there will a lot of rocking. The Landing will not be smooth, because there will be no VTOL. Rocinante will have to skim the surface. Worse part is, once you are down, you won't be able to take off unless the drive pod is fixed. If it is missing, then you will be in big trouble.

Now when the passengers came abroad, Tess started to get hits from transmitters. Not surprising as a lot of the rich folk have personal transmitters that signal alliance when they are activated. these link to the cortex and the cortex is cut off. However, someone tried to signal someone else via a radio signal as soon as you were clear from the explosion. Tess jammed the signal out of pure reflex (Someone named Grace taught her that) but some of it got through. She cannot say how much. The other worrisome fact - Something is still jamming the cortex. That means it wasn't the damage to the cruise liner, it would have to be something else and they would have to be close. Not on Roc, Tess could locate that, but likely another ship out there and they don't want anyone contacting the authorities.

One silver lining is that the moon being in second stage terraforming might still have atmospheric processors. they would be dormant but a place of shelter, equipment and if no one was looking - spare parts. Plus they would have a beacon to home in on to make landing easier.

Willow Sifu is badly hurt. Sifu has suffered a subdural hemorrhage results from tearing of the bridging veins in the subdural space between the dura and arachnoid matter, but Willow feels confident that she can save him and there will be no neurological damage. She is starting to procedure now, with John assisting and she should have the Monk stabilized about an hour before you attempt the landing.

Topic: Star Trek: the Cassius Incident
Subject: Tier's Report

Stardate 2368.07.08
USS Discovery, Main Security Office– 0550

“They are on your screen sir.” The Petty officer Kaster was saying.

Tier was mad. Very Mad. Perhaps too mad. Yes, he could acknowledge that he was taking this “simulation” as a personal affront and that he was sure that deep down, somehow, Commander Avanti was behind it. It was the type of thing the commander would do. Throw a ship into chaos and see what happens. The XO probably wanted to see how it would affect the “harmonics” of the ship.

Raditz was talking about his team. Tier pondered the envitable report he would have to give.

I’ll give you some gokk-bonking harmonics you oversized gokk-bonker of a commander. I’ll cram a gokk-bonking harmonic so far up you that it will hum when you eat gokk-bonking breakfast.

“ Permission to speak freely,” Tier asked aloud, not even noticing that he just stepped over Kato’s turn to speak. He also didn’t wait for the response. “What the gokk-bonking hell was that? I’m all for simulation and surprise simulations but what are we doing running a gokk-bonking sim with live weapons without some protocol or notice? My team responded well, as I would expect them to, we communicated and met up in excellent time but there weren’t any invaders? So what did we gokk-bonking learn? We can run like gokkbonkers demons when the pressure is on? I could have told the gokk-bonking commander that! I need a gokk-bonking enemy to fight and I rather not have someone accidently shot in a unannounced combat sim. Not that any of my guys would make that kind of gokk-bonking mistake! But things can happen.

“Don’t get me wrong, I am in gokk-bonking awe of Lt. N’Doog’s simulation. I have been in fire fights and attacks since I was a child and he completely fooled the gokk-bonking hell out of me. Frankly, I think we might be able to use that sim if we were ever infiltrated to divide and conquer the gokk-bonking Borg.

“But overall, my team performed well under the gokk-bonking test and I was very pleased with their efficiency and speed. Thank you sir.”

Tier felt a bit better but noticed that Kato was staring at him with a funny look. “Problem Ensign?”

“Umm... It was my turn.”

“So get on with it Ensign. Don’t stand around with your mouth open like a gokk-bonking dolt. The Lieutenant is waiting.”

Avanti’s fault. This is all his fault

Topic: Star Trek: the Cassius Incident
Subject: XO speaks, but not much.

Stardate 2368.07.08
USS Discovery, Observation Lounge – 0745

Avanti sat at the staff meeting and listen to the Captain talk about the simulation. He thought the exercise was a good one and the fact that there was no true danger to the ship did much to soothe the uneasy feeling that he had during the attack. All was right in the universe, after all.

The first officer was not known as one who had to speak at a meeting, he actually preferred to listen. He certainly did not need to chime in his approval of the Captain’s test, as he found that humans often thought that to be a sign of weakness. What did Lt. N‘Doog refer to it as? Something about a brown nose.

"With that being said," Blair continued, "I believe that we have room to improve. I want each of you to honestly assess your departments. Find out who did a good job - and who could improve. Figure out if there was anything that we could have done better. Small improvements could save lives, and avoiding mistakes could prevent disaster. I have no intention of making these sort of drills commonplace, but I want the crew to be as prepared as I can possibly accomplish. I will gladly trade a few minor injuries and hurt feelings for even one life, and I will not apologize for that position. I trust that you can all appreciate that."

"I expect a full departmental report from each of you by the end of the day. Commander Pantanko, I trust that we are still on schedule to have full warp drive today?"

Blair nodded. "Excellent. Lack of warp drive gives me a stranded feeling. I'll be glad to be done with that."

“Yes. I too miss the feel of the warp core running.”Avanti said with a sigh. He was distracted by the lack of a warp core humming in his head. He was sensitive to harmonics and vibrations so he was feeling like he was in a room where everyone had been talking and then suddenly stopped.

The Domtarian could not help but keep going over the feeling he had when the “attack” was happening and he felt nothing. It was an odd feeling, almost stifling in a way considered how often his feeling of the world had save his life and those around him. What is it I am feeling right now? Fear? Disappointment? Anger? It was a simulation.


"Very well," the Captain concluded. "Dismissed."

As everyone rose to leave, the ship’s counsellor Serene Markus stepped up to the Captain as he rose to leave. He wondered briefly to himself if he should speak to her about these mixed feelings. Although he had not had much luck with counsellors so far in his career.

“Captain?” She said in a tone that rang very clear in Avanti’s mind, “I would like to have a word with you now if you have a moment. I can give my personal report now if you don’t mind.”

Avanti had stood up to wait for everyone to leave and then speak to Blair as was his usual routine. “Would you prefer privacy Counsellor or may hear the word you have for the captain as well?" He asked sincerely.

Less than 20 but more than fifteen. Do not worry, I am not about to kill off another of your character. You have some head trauma but the lovely Miss Willow will patch you up.

Feel free to play out some dreams while you are out.

Lots of stuff going on right now and I need to send out some PM's. Rocinante is hurting but she'll still fly true cause she's loved. Landing on the moon (LV-426) has now become imperative though.

What can I tell you here....

The port side Drive Pod is completely offline. You were hit hard and for all you know, it may have been ripped off completely.

The Primary Buffer Panel is damaged which is gonna play havoc with power and your landing.

There is a fracture in the core containment unit that will grow as you keep using the main engines. To fix that, you have to be on the ground and the engines shut down.

You have a wounded Shepherd that will require the doctor's attention.

And things are just getting interesting!

Subject: If the spaceship is rocking, don't come knocking

Rocinante Engine Room, 8:32 pm ST

Fenris (Wolf) Apollo was not gifted with a great dealing of schooling but to think the big mechanic was a dumb man would be a mistake. He knew engines and how they worked, and he knew mechanics quite well, especially life support. Now the average person breathed in air that had about 20% oxygen and
The carbon dioxide scrubber on Rocinante were regenerative carbon dioxide removal systems (RCRS) that used a two-bed system that provided continuous removal of carbon dioxide without expendable products. Worked well, too except they were designed to handed a max of 20 people (30 if you wanted to push the design) not the 70 plus that were currently aboard. So Wolf had to make a scrubber of his own and patch it into the main line using 100 mile/hour tape, and his own faith in his abilities.

As Wolf poured the activated carbon into the makeshift filter, he heard and felt the first explosions. He wished with all his heart that he could somehow protect the ship from what was to come like a superhero in one of the comics he read as a kid, but truth was, there was nothing he could do except wait it out and fix the damage afterwards. Right now he had to finish what he was doing or else all those people were gonna stop worrying about explosions all too soon.

Rocinante Cockpit, 8:32 pm ST

Tess wanted to boot the ship into Hard burn and get out of there but she knew she couldn't. Too much debris and the shockwaves were moving faster than she could possibly get the ship moving. for the now, she had to dodge and weave and hope the armour on the ship held.

One of the "smoke stack" from the Star tumbled is a slow arcing end over end roll and Tess took a chance, matching speed and roll she moved the shop on the far side of the stack and used it as a shield. As the cruise liner blew up completely , the stack took the brunt of the explosion and protected them from the debris.

But something else large and hard collided into the stack. The heavy piece of metal shredded the stack into bits and took away the protection. Tess drove Rocinante downwards to avoid being hit as well, but suddenly the primary buffer panel was ripped off by something striking the hull. The control panels lit up like an Erastide tree and the power level dropped dramatically.

Then something hit the port side hard. Hard enough to bounce the ship across the black like a skipping stone on a lake. The drive pod completely shut down and warning signs showed it venting fuel.

There was no time to dodge left, as Tess knew that they would becoming sitting ducks here. She pushed the main engine into a hard burn and took off away from the death of the cruise liner. As she did, something else hit from behind but nothing changed in her readings so she continued to punch it, hoping to get out and find that moon.

Rocinante Cargo Bay, 8:32 pm ST

With a beautiful women in front of him, offering herself in ways he could only imagine, John said. “You’re perspiring a little and your pupils are slightly dilated. Your breathing is also irregular and your heart beat seems elevated.” He let go of her hand and looked her in the eye with the bored sternness one would expect from a doctor telling you to ‘take it easy’ after an operation or a dentist letting you know you should be flossing more regularly. “I think you’ll be fine. I’ve got to finish up here but if you want a check over wait around the medbay.”

The young lady stepped back, looking a bit shocked. She certainly was not used to the brush off. She wanted to be checked over but wait? She looked around confused.

Willow responded to the question of "do you know who I am" in a calm and distinguished manner."Of course I do, Portia Amber-sama, you have often honoured the Takahara home with your presence, along with your husband. I am so sorry for your loss, "Willow put her hands on her thighs to bow respectfully, her head bowing deep enough to show respect, but not sub-ordinance, "How lovely to see you again, it's Sunipta Takahara, Ahiro's daughter. I will be certain to pass along any greetings you may have for him." Willow's tone was gracious and respectful, but was assuredly firm.

"As for accommodations, I can certainly understand your concern, and we'll address them as soon as we have a moment. Would you like to sit over here, where you won't be bothered...or perhaps you'd like to wait back on the ship, in case something more suitable comes along? No? I supposed not, you are as wise as my father always said you are! Please, make yourself comfortable, Ms. Amber-sama."

"Ahiro?. Oh my of course. Sunipta. It has been awhile. I hope your family is well." she smiled a cold smile as if Willow introduction had slide everything into place, "I had heard that you were struggling with finding a vocation. I see you have found a place to ply both of your half-done trades. Good for you."

At that point the young lady who had wandered off came back and step between Portia and Willow to stand very close to the ship's doctor."I’m Amber Sunshine. Are you a doctor? I think I need to be examined very thoroughly. You got someplace ... private we could go?” she continued.

The five young men took advantage of the situation to calmly but steadily move pass everyone and head for the catwalk, towards the engine room. Asher saw the warning look from the captain and quickly headed them off with a "Come back," followed by a desperate bellow of, "Noooooo!" as the tall slender one managed to slip by him as he corralled the others. It wasn't that he was worried, as much as what Wolf would do to them. The ship shook as the shockwave of an explosion hit. But the Captain keep his cool and blew two shrill whistles from his mouth before speaking to the people there.

"My name is Captain Wyatt Sung, and yer aboard my ship now. Rocinante is a good ship, but she weren't built for the accommodations that the Star was. Our facilities are limited, an' though we are all grateful to Buddha that we were in this end o' the Black when this disaster happened, things are a bit tight. So, I'm gonna state this once, and only once. Listen like your lives depend on it, fine people. You stay here in this bay unless otherwise directed by myself'r one o' my crew. Don't go touchin' none of the cargo, don't go messin' with my mule. Just sit tight while we find the best solution to the situation.

"Miss Willow and Fu Sheng there'll help those o' you who are hurtin'. John'll support yer needs as we can, but there'll be order about it. The young man there is Asher...he's a good hand at public relations, so he'll be about as needed. That's Ma Trish, and she's just like any ma dirtside, so I wouldn't be pressin' her patience none.

"Now, I've got my pilot takin' us to a nearby planet that looks like it'll be a good place with some fresh air t' wait out the Alliance's rescue boats. It's 'bout a four-hour trip that should go rather quick if'n everyone's cooperative. So, let's be cooperative an' make it as pleasant as we can.

"Some o' you may want t' give me the time o' day pretending that Roc has more t' offer than what you see before you. It ain't that I am inattentive t' the needs o' my passengers. It's jus' that Roc is a pretty li'l thing that flies on a wing an' a prayer. So, I'll not be entertainin' private audiences with anyone 'less I determine it's necessary. Yer on my ship, an' there're a lot o' pressin' matters that need my attention. So, I appreciate yer cooperation.

"Now, if you'll excuse me, I've progress t' check on."

At that moment, Fu Sheng came bounding up the stairs to his side, “Sung Chuan Zung,” he said evenly and loudly enough for only the captain to hear, “I do not wish to cause alarm but I believe we might have a problem.”

Then something slammed hard into the ship. The passengers and crew were tossed like ragdolls across the cargo bay. Fu Sheng reached for the rail but his hand missed and he flew over the railing to land below on the hard surface of the cargo bay floor. Willow and John attempted to react but the ship was spinning wildly for awhile before it straighten out again. The passengers were all screaming wildly and the lights flickered a bit before coming back to normal.

"I say!" Havelock said loudly, "Buck up people! No need to panic! We are all still here and breathing so let just keep our heads. Been through plenty worse spots and came out alive and kicking so let's just remain calm." the older captain straighten himself and started to stride towards the stairway and Wyatt. Unfortunately his feet get caught in some panelling and he falls flat on his face.

Willow runs over and checks Sifu head and eyes. "We need to get him to the infirmary. NOW!"

Rocinante Cargo Bay, 8:32 pm ST

Wolf got the filter installed just before the hard jolt to the port side. The impact echoed throughout the engine room and Wolf got up and raced to the engines as fast as he could. OFFLINE OFFLINE OFFLINE - the port drive pod was completely shut down and worse it was venting valuable hydrogen fuel into the black. Wolf ran over to the shutoff valve and quickly spun the wheel to seal off the feed. The power levels were low so something else was damaged, probably the primary buffer panel. The mechanic adjusted the power levels to the secondary circuits when he heard a voice behind him.

"Well isn't this interesting? That is a Enhanced graviton accelerator core isn't it?"

Wolf turned to see a tall lanky teenage boy looking around the engine room like he was on some sort of field trip.

(assuming a kurt get out!)

"Well no need to get testy! I'm just admiring the engine. Room could be a bit cleaner though. you'd think you'd have time to clean up with all the leisure time in space."

(assuming a pulling the shotgun and threatening violence)

"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!" the teenage screams girlishly and then faints straight to the floor. Wolf shakes his head and re-sheathes the shotgun while he goes back to the engines. The port drive pod is dead, not a huge issue in space but more so once they get into atmo. He checks the other systems, most are fine. Life support is working well and he allows himself a smile for that. But then a needle on one dial moves, slightly. Wolf taps the meter while hoping it will not move again. But it does, once more ever so slightly.

Looking at the core containment meter long and hard it continues to flicker on its own.

This is bad. This is very bad. Wolf thought.

I have my post done but I did not have internet connection last night so I will put the post up soon, before noon I hope.

Scratch that. Apparently I saved it to my hard drive and not my flash drive. Either that or I have to start again. Grrrrr......
