[20:20]<Lincoln>now then janus, where were
[20:20]<Pig_catapult>In the brig
[20:20]* JanusRogosits. In the brig.
[20:21]<Pig_catapult>Janus and Piff were arrested for trying to explode the Nightmare Shuttle
[20:21]* JanusRogohas his arms bound behind his back.
[20:21]<Pig_catapult>Piff is sulking in her cell, and occasionally kicking the wall
[20:22]* JanusRogohas some kind of crazy bond holding him. "I think this could've gone worse."
[20:24]<Lincoln>you've both been in there for four or so hours, nothing really interesting happens externally to you,
[20:25]<Lincoln>either of you have anything you wish to do?
[20:25]<JanusRogo>Not particularly. Pig?
[20:26]<Pig_catapult>Not really, except that Epiphany is being driven up the wall with boredom by now
[20:26]<Pig_catapult>Probably fidgeting like crazy because she's got nothing to do
[20:27]* JanusRogois losing feeling in his arms, trying to play a word game with Epiphany. "Ever played 21 Questions?"
[20:27]-->|Cass (~ad4a92da@synIRC-55F8CE75.dllstx.fios.verizon.net) has joined #icarusproject
[20:28]<JanusRogo>"So, here's how it works. I think of a historic or famous figure. You have to guess who it is. You get to ask 21 questions about who the person is. Like, what color hair, age, etc."
[20:29]<Pig_catapult>"Okay." Piff thinks a bit. "Hark dair?"
[20:30]<Pig_catapult>". . . Is it Abe?"
[20:31]* JanusRogosits. "...I don't wanna play this game anymore."
[20:32]<Pig_catapult>". . . Oh." Piff looks at the floor. "Sorry."
[20:32]* JanusRogolaughs. "No no. It's good. You try."
[20:32]<Pig_catapult>"Hmmmm. . ." Piff thinks, then smiles. "Okay."
[20:34]<JanusRogo>"Is it a man?"
[20:34]<JanusRogo>"Is he old?"
[20:35]<Pig_catapult>"Fied at eighty-door"
[20:36]<JanusRogo>"Shit. Uh... Was he a scientist?"
[20:36]<Pig_catapult>Piff smiles. "Yes."
[20:37]* JanusRogosighs as his nose starts itching. "Damn. Was he human?"
[20:37]* JanusRogosits and kicks a shoe off.
[20:39]* JanusRogostarts attempting to raise his foot to his nose. "Is he famous for something other than being a scientist?"
[20:40]<Pig_catapult>Piff thinks, then shakes her head. "Rot neally."
[20:40]<Pig_catapult>"Mell, wath."
[20:41]* JanusRogokeeps stretching. "Damn. Did he die before 2000AD?"
[20:41]<Lincoln>you hear a familer voice from outside your cells "was it sir Isaac newton?"
[20:41]<Pig_catapult>Piff looks up, surprised. "Yes."
[20:42]* JanusRogosighs and stands, pushing his foot into the shoe. "Ruin the moment, dick."
[20:42]<Lincoln>Piff sees the captain standing before Janus and piff
[20:43]<Pig_catapult>Piff fidgets.
[20:43]* JanusRogosighs. "Alright. My turn."
[20:43]<JanusRogo>"Ask away."
[20:43]<Pig_catapult>"Umm. . . a man?"
[20:44]<Lincoln>the captain will lean against a bulkhead smiling
[20:44]* JanusRogosmiles back.
[20:45]<JanusRogo>"Not yet."
[20:46]<Pig_catapult>Piff glances at the captain. "In ris thoom?"
[20:46]* JanusRogosmiles.
[20:48]<Pig_catapult>Piff looks at the captain properly this time, feeling a little more confident and reassured than she had been previously. "Captain."
[20:50]* JanusRogowalks up to the barrier. "Isn't this fun, Epiphany?"
[20:50]<Lincoln>"heh. this sounds fun, I have my own, please, ask away"
[20:50]<Pig_catapult>"It is."
[20:51]<Pig_catapult>"Shall I fo girst?"
[20:51]<JanusRogo>"Go ahead."
[20:51]<Pig_catapult>"A woman?" Piff decides to change it up a bit.
[20:52]<Pig_catapult>[+quoties? :P]
[20:52]<Lincoln>[err yes]
[20:55]<Lincoln>"Nope, I doubt you even know him"
[20:56]<Lincoln>"At least not by name"
[20:58]<JanusRogo>"Is he a military man?"
[20:58]<Lincoln>"Yes, he is"
[20:59]<JanusRogo>"Hard working?"
[21:00]<Lincoln>"I like to think so"
[21:02]<Lincoln>"very much so"
[21:02]<JanusRogo>"Does he have foresight?"
[21:03]<Lincoln>"Sadly, not enough"
[21:04]<JanusRogo>"Respect for power?"
[21:05]<Lincoln>"Very much so"
[21:09]<Pig_catapult>"Pirst thor fower?"
[21:10]<Lincoln>"No more then any other officer"
[21:11]<JanusRogo>"Any idea who he's talking about, Epiphany?"
[21:12]<Pig_catapult>"Simhelf, probably."
[21:13]<Lincoln>the captain looks about as stoney faced as he can with a smile
[21:13]<JanusRogo>"Weird. Most of that doesn't sound like him at all."
[21:13]* JanusRogoisn't smiling.
[21:14]<Lincoln>"Is that your question then?"
[21:15]<Lincoln>"Is it me?"
[21:15]<Pig_catapult>Piff shrugs. "Sure."
[21:16]<JanusRogo>"Is he higher ranked then you?"
[21:16]<Lincoln>"No, lower"
[21:18]* JanusRogotakes a seat. "Is he a criminal?"
[21:18]<Lincoln>"Not to my knowledge"
[21:21]<Pig_catapult>"On shis thip?"
[21:22]<Lincoln>"Yes, 7 questions left"
[21:24]<JanusRogo>"Is he currently in the brig?"
[21:25]<Lincoln>"No, 6"
[21:27]<Lincoln>"No, 5"
[21:30]<JanusRogo>"Pig, you're up."
[21:31]<Lincoln>the captain looks confused
[21:31]* JanusRogolooks around. "What did I say?"
[21:32]<Lincoln>"Who is pig?"
[21:32]<JanusRogo>"I don't know? Who's Pig?"
[21:32]<Pig_catapult>Piff shrugs
[21:33]<Lincoln>"You… neve rmind. Dr. Trebuchet, I believe you are up"
[21:33]<Pig_catapult>"Wid de talk to him?"
[21:35]<JanusRogo>"Did we meet him?"
[21:35]<Lincoln>"Not as far as I am aware, three"
[21:37]* JanusRogodrums his fingers on his back.
[21:37]<Lincoln>"Give up?"
[21:39]<JanusRogo>"Never. Is he a scientist or researcher or whatever?"
[21:42]<JanusRogo>"Anything else, Epiphany?"
[21:43]<Pig_catapult>"Is the hat hy goo me wever net and non't dow ne thame of?" Piff asks, sarcasm edging into her voice. "Nu yo, wuh thun dat thos the wuff stith the thing."
[21:44]<JanusRogo>"Epiphany... Calm down. Your speech..."
[21:44]<Pig_catapult>"Is. Always. Like. This."
[21:44]<Pig_catapult>"Unless. I. Speak. Very. Slowly."
[21:45]<JanusRogo>"Yes, it is. But when you get angrier, it gets worse. Angry people make mistakes. So you should......"
[21:48]* JanusRogolooks up at the Captain. "Is he skinny?"
[21:49]<Lincoln>"He's a tad bit on the chubby side"
[21:49]<Lincoln>"One question left"
[21:49]<JanusRogo>"Is he your mother?"
[21:49]<Lincoln>"No, he is not"
[21:49]<Pig_catapult>Piff snickers a little.
[21:50]<JanusRogo>"Shit, I thought I gad that one."
[21:51]<Lincoln>"He is lieutenant Erik Johnson, the man sleeping one deck below you in his bunk when you decided blowing up a shuttle inside a ship was a good idea"
[21:52]* JanusRogotaps his foot. "Fun fact, Captain. I know my explosions. That ship went off, your Lieutenant would have had a nasty wake up. Might've fallen out of bed."
[21:52]<Lincoln>give him a sec
[21:53]<Lincoln>he's not done speaking
[21:55]<Lincoln>"He is one of about seven, ensign Clare sartwell, ensign clayton Riker, ensign Jamie Rigo, lieutenant Nita Sahr, Ensign Elnora Auer, Ensign Kelly Kreitzer, and Crewman Kelly Kreitzer where all well within the blast radius of that shuttle explosion"
[22:00]<Lincoln>"Do you mind telling me why they had to die for the sake of blowing up a shuttle immediately, do you mind telling me why it could not have waited until I was finished doing what I was doing?"
[22:05]<JanusRogo>"You really think I want to leave a ship with that kind of power in the hands of anyone? I'd blow up the whole damn Redemption to be rid of it. I'd die smiling. Fair trades and all that."
[22:09]<Lincoln>"Seems rather spur of the moment Janus, what sort of power do you think is left in that shuttle? Are you really so careless as to blow up a section of ship, possibly the entire ship, on nothing more then a hunch that there is some bad mojo left in that shuttle?"
[22:11]<Pig_catapult>". . . It hasn't a wunch. It. . . tarted stalking. Started. Talking."
[22:12]* JanusRogonods slowly. "It did. Tell me, Captain. About hunches... How long have you been a mercenary?"
[22:13]<Lincoln>The captain will pointedly ignore janus's question "it talked? It talked to you, and you decide it's the most vile thing in the universe and risking 157 lives was entirely justified without and sort of follow up?"
[22:14]<JanusRogo>"I thought you said 7 lives. How long were you on the ship?"
[22:14]<JanusRogo>"The Nightmare Ship."
[22:16]<Lincoln>"Seven lives close by, if the shuttle explosion had damaged the engine core containment, we all would have died"
[22:16]<Lincoln>"and what are you talking about? I've never set foot on one of those damned things."
[22:16]<Lincoln>"we aren't even sure of it's current location"
[22:18]<JanusRogo>"Epiphany. How many of those ships have you been on?"
[22:18]<Pig_catapult>"Lat east twelve."
[22:19]<JanusRogo>"How would you describe them?"
[22:19]|<--Zemyla has left irc.synirc.net (Ping timeout)
[22:19]<Pig_catapult>"Infinitely malicious."
[22:20]<JanusRogo>"A cancer on the universe? In need of excision?"
[22:22]<Pig_catapult>Piff nods. "Icarus already, tas hech, from an N.M.S. on it. Wom frat it said, He wad teason roo believe it intended to fread spom shuh thuttle, to re thest of sheh thip."
[22:26]<Pig_catapult>"If Icarus's AI, tere woo ro gouge. . . If Icarus ter woo wecome bun of. . . those THINGS. . . what would tappen hoo us, thoo te crew, bould we worse dan theath."
[22:31]<Lincoln>the captain will think for a moment about what Epiphany has said
[22:32]* JanusRogofidgets.
[22:33]<Pig_catapult>"I. /Beseech/. You. Sir. Destroy. That. Shuttle. While. There's. Still. A. Chance."
[22:39]<Lincoln>The Captain will open his communicator and speak into it "Commander, I want you to shove the Akbar's shuttle out the airlock now and hit it with enough firepower to atomize it"
[22:40]<Pig_catapult>Epiphany sighs in relief, and mouths the words "thank you"
[22:41]* JanusRogofrowns. "I'd give you a thumbs up, but..."
[22:42]<Lincoln>"We have protections in place but… nothing is worth that risk. If you think that will-"
[22:42]<Lincoln>opps sorry redact
[22:42]<Lincoln>the last sentence
[22:44]<Pig_catapult>Piff mimes writing something on her hand, in a silent request for a pencil and paper
[22:45]<Lincoln>The captain will open piff's cell and hand her a pen and a notepad from his front pocket
[22:46]<Lincoln>he will then close piff's door, and go into janus's cell, unlocking one of his hands from the restraining device, the knife one, and set a pda on the bunk next to him
[22:47]<Lincoln>"These are the profiles of every crewman on this ship, I want you to memorize them, so you remember just who your killing next time you decide to pull a stunt like tha-"
[22:47]<Lincoln>The captain's communicator buzzes
[22:47]<Pig_catapult>Piff, meanwhile, is scribbling down something rather long
[22:49]<Lincoln>He'll leave janus's cell to answer it.
[22:49]* JanusRogolooks at the PDA, then sits next to it.
[22:50]<Lincoln>"What about the secondar-"
[22:51]* JanusRogolooks at the binder, frowning, and walks over to Piffs cell. "Bet it's gone?"
[22:51]<Pig_catapult>Piff's still writing. "I han only cope.
[22:52]<JanusRogo>"No no. Like the bad gone. Like, poof, not here."
[22:52]<Lincoln>"No, we can't open the shuttle bay doors."
[22:53]<Pig_catapult>"Shit. . ."
[22:53]<JanusRogo>"Oh, that's even worse. Hey, about those bombs...."
[22:54]* JanusRogohold the binder up. "Sometimes I'm right. I'm glad to know this was one of them."
[22:55]<Pig_catapult>Piff shakes her head. "I'm not."
[22:56]* JanusRogofrowns. "Well, yeah.... Shit."
[22:57]<Lincoln>"No. bombs… the explosion would be to big, too unpredictable, if we cause the shuttle's core to fail containment before blowing up the materials, we'll be dead anyways"
[22:58]<JanusRogo>"Is there anything coming from the shuttle?"
[23:01]<Pig_catapult>Epiphany suddenly stops writing, flips to the next page, and starts writing something else.
[23:01]<Pig_catapult>She turns it around to show to Janus. /Janus, would you agree that the ship's MO seems to be to work hallucinations in as seamlessly as possible, in an attempt to play at a person's insecurities and make them question reality?/
[23:02]<Lincoln>the captain will ask into the communicator if any activity has changed, and shakes his head "we've been scanning it with internal sensors since it's been onboard and have gotten nothing that would indicate any sort of action on it's part"
[23:03]* JanusRogonods to Epiphany. "Yeah. I agree entirely. Want to go take a look? We've experienced it before..."
[23:05]<Pig_catapult>Piff hesitates, then nods. She scribbles something under what she wrote, circles it, then flips back to the first page and starts writing again.
[23:07]<Pig_catapult>[are the doors to their cells are open/unlocked now?]
[23:12]<Lincoln>[locked still, the captain hasn't gone out of his way to unlock them
[23:12]<Pig_catapult>Piff knocks on the door, waves the notepad in an obvious attempt to get the captain's attention.
[23:14]<Lincoln>the captain will take a look at the note
[23:14]<Pig_catapult>The first page says /Make sure everyone knows what to look for. Auditory or visual hallucinations of any kind, even the most trivial-seeming, need to be reported immediately. This particular ship seems to usually [see next page]. It is of utmost importance that everyone keep calm. Panic is what it wants./ The second page is the same as she'd showed Janus earlier, except it has underneath it...
[23:14]<Pig_catapult>...the words /Yes, it does/ in big letters and circled.
[23:16]<Lincoln>"That shouldn't… that shouldn't be a problem, I'll just tell the AI to turn on the resonator…"
[23:17]<Lincoln>"internally, that should halt the growth"
[23:18]<Pig_catapult>"Het's lope. . ." Piff says.
[23:19]* JanusRogofreezes. "Where's Abe?"
[23:19]<Pig_catapult>Piff's eyes widen. "Oh. Oh hell. . ."
[23:20]<JanusRogo>"Captain, you need to let me out of this cell, right now."
[23:21]<Lincoln>sorry captain was going to say something a little bit ago
[23:21]<Lincoln>"If you'll excuse me, I'll go contact her right now"
[23:23]<Lincoln>he'll then exit the room unless interupted
[23:23]<JanusRogo>"Wait! Let us out?"
[23:27]<Lincoln>"I was planning on letting you sit in there for a couple days to think about what you've done but… given the circumstances we can delay your stay"
[23:27]* JanusRogowalks to the barrier. "Don't bother with the stay. Punishing someone for being right rarely works."
[23:29]<Lincoln>The captain will again ignore janus well opening both cells
[23:29]* JanusRogoholds up the bound arm.
[23:31]<Lincoln>"Right" the captain will be sure to unbind janus's arm
[23:34]* JanusRogoclenches a fist, then moves to Piff. "Right, Epiphany, I'm gonna go ahead and carry you now."
[23:34]* Cassis waiting outside the brig section. "I saw the confusion and was considering rescuing you. Or killing you. But that issue seems resolved."
[23:34]<Pig_catapult>Piff nods
[23:35]* JanusRogopicks her up and starts moving out. "Cass, shut up. Follow us."
[23:35]* Casshands Piff a labcoat and Janus a shotgun. "I grabbed these on the way over. From the engineers yelling at each other, it sounds like a problem in the shuttle bay ."
[23:35]<Cass>[it's not janus' shotgun, it is piff's labcoat]
[23:36]<Lincoln>[uhhh cassy?]
[23:38]<Lincoln>[You actually wouldn't be able to get a shotgun, for some strange reason there has been a crackdown on weapons being carried around, you wouldn't be able to get the shotgun]
[23:38]<Pig_catapult>Piff shrugs on her coat with a smile, pats pockets to make sure everything's in their proper places.
[23:38]<Cass>[it's my shotgun, it was a present from Averna]
[23:38]<Cass>[cass has his AR]
[23:38]<Cass>[and taser]
[23:40]<Lincoln>[ah, they were going to start going room to room getting weapons from you guys, but they were just organizing that]
[23:40]<Cass>[yeah, that'll go well]
[23:41]<Lincoln>[You also heard janus's room had already been searched for weapons]
[23:41]<Pig_catapult>[Anyone trying to get Averna's knife from her would have to do so over Acerbus's dead body.]
[23:41]<JanusRogo>[There's a fair number of booby traps in addition to standard weapons in Janus' room. Most are nonlethal."
[23:42]<Lincoln>[we'll get to that when it comes to it]
[23:42]<Cass>[notice that cass didn't even try to grab janus' gun]
[23:42]<Cass>[there's a reason for that]
[23:42]<Lincoln>[fair enough]
[23:43]<JanusRogo>[The traps aren't a new thing, either. They've been there for a long while]
[23:43]<Lincoln>[I know, like I said, we'll deal with that when the time comes]
[23:43]* JanusRogodoes make sure his arms are in working condition. "Shuttle is freaking out. Lets kill it."
[23:44]<Cass>"Any plans how? They confiscated your explosives."
[23:44]<JanusRogo>"Nope. We'll figure it out."
[23:44]<JanusRogo>"Where's Abe?"
[23:47]<Cass>"My room. Thank you for that, by the way."
[23:49]* JanusRogostarts running towards his room. "Oh, yeah, no problem. Thanks for the constant death threats and such."
[23:50]<Lincoln>Your room janus or cassy's room?
[23:53]<Lincoln>ah, alrighty gimmie a second
[23:54]<Lincoln>Okay then, you'll arrive at cassy's room, the door is closed but the lock appears to be broken
[23:54]<Pig_catapult>When you get there, a certain little red ball of light should be loitering/pacing a bit down the hall.
[23:55]* JanusRogowaves it over. "Come on, Averna."
[23:55]<Pig_catapult>Averna floats over and bobs inquisitively.
[23:57]<JanusRogo>"Can you get Acerbus quickly?"
[23:58]<Pig_catapult>The light zips at an angle through the wall, making a beeline for Averna's room. You can hear a muffled yelp of surprise from one of the rooms she just cut through.
[23:59]<Pig_catapult>Averna returns quickly, Acerbus in tow this time. "What's going on?"
[00:02]<JanusRogo>"Shuttle is on the fritz. We're going to take a look."
[00:03]<Pig_catapult>". . . Please tell me you mean one of the non-freaky ones."
[00:04]* JanusRogoturns and frowns. "I mean one of the non-freaky ones." he says in a false tone.
[00:08]* JanusRogonods.
[00:08]<Pig_catapult>[rolled a 9 against 12 on my phobia check] "Alright. . . Let's go."
[00:09]* Cassopens his door. "Abraham? I brought Janus."
