SG-1- Team building
« on: May 16, 2019, 01:59:53 AM »



The one thing that seemed to be true of the science team was the tendancy to get swallowed up in their projects, even on their days off.   Kylee had almost a dozen ongoing projects  a few subprojects, most of them testing improvements on on standard issue equipment.  One such idea was adding unrefined trinium to a ceramic solution in an effort to make tactical vests able to deflect more staff weapons than ceramics alone which mostly dissipated heat.  That had been approved for testing so of course she was all over that.  Rare does a chance come down to play mythbuster at work, and she had checked out a staff weapon, collected her ballistic dummy and dressed him up in the latest Tacvest stand in with the new inserts.

Standing behind the glass with Bill Lee, she grinned wildly as he handed her the switch to activate the blast weapon.  Even if it didn't actually do what they had theorized, it would at least be hell of a show, and he was humoring her.

"Testing in 3, 2, 1."  She announced before clicking the trigger and sending off the direct hit blast.   It hit the dummy, sending it flying, and sort of lighting it on fire.  Granted the fabric of the tacvest on this case wasn't strictly fire proof, so Kylee hit the fire button and the fire was put out.

She stood up and went to reach for the tablet to get the read out.   "Based on this it's a 5-10 percent reduction in blast getting through.  That's not terrible."   

"A marked improvement I'll give you that but I don't see it going into mass production yet.  We'd probably need at least fifteen."

"Not at the cost of these things.  Even from scrap trinium it's pretty pricey.  Aw well, thanks Bill."  She said, then setting things back up for another round, then looking over the numbers again.  Couldn't hurt to double check them before submitting the report.   Although with the excitement from the explosion gone she was starting to get a little antsy.  She should probably make more use of her personal day, call her brother and see if he wanted to do a raid or something, but maybe later.

Cam made his way down to the labs, having showed up in casual clothes rather than his uniform. He wore a blue vintage t-shirt with the Shelby Snake logo in white, blue jeans and a pair of white and blue running shoes. He hadn't come on official buisness, it was just that some of his team wasn't answering the phone and with all the tensions running, a lesson Landry taught him that he wanted to apply here.

"Y'know. Today's a day off, and this looks suspiciously like work." Cam pointed out casually as he leaned in the doorway.

With all of her note taking she may very well have jumped if not for all that military conditioning.  The voice she didn't know well but easily recognized as the CO of SG-1, the team she'd just been transferred to even if she wasn't entirely sure she deserved that honor.   Maybe the SG-1 veterens didn't realize how much their stories were told around Alpha site, so she had to reel in her excitement a bit.  She bites back a grin and waves the remote in her hand.  "I'm making things go boom, how is that work?" 

Okay, granted, the data she had to enter did count as work, a tablet she offered to Bill who was standing behind her.

"I grew up on a healthy dose of mythbusters.  Can't help it."
   That and she was probably going to call it quits soon anyway.    "Did you have any plans?  There isn't some sort of initiation ritual, is there?"

"Because it's here and it's official buisness. Thus, it's work." Cam replied, "We don't go make you run an obstacle course or eat bugs or whatever." Cam replied.

"Personally, I was hoping to get you, Vala, and Daniel to unwind at my place in town. I bought a house for...various reasons." Cam let that one go for a moment. It probably wasn't any secret that despite finally getting the girl he'd wanted since High School, he had yet to actually marry her. But that was no one's buisness but his own...especially if Vala decided to bring it up.

"Nothing fancy, probably get something ordered there plus soda and chips and whatever else. Not keen on getting anyone liquored up, especially Vala. Maybe play some cards, no real money of course, but I do also have a Wii. At least you might want to get a few rounds of Super Smash Brothers in with me, I just call dibs on Solid Snake." Cam said with a half grin.

"Honestly, it's better than being cooped up down here all day every day, running yourself into the ground while we deal with whatever antics Ba'al is up to. I learned that during the war with the Ori." Cam explained.

"Strictly speaking I need something to unwind from but that sounds good, and you always seemed like more of an xbox kinda guy."  She quipped, raising her hands in surrender to hand over the controls to Bill.   

"Me, I play on the PC."   But a wii, that would do.    "Then I call dibs on Pikachu."  Seemed like a nataural fit for her, and that and it was the one she had the most practice on.   "Does Daniel play too?"  Now him, he didn't expect him to be much of a gamer at all.

She mulled over the remark on Ba'al for a moment, then offering a smirk.  "He's a discount Lex Luthor and we still haven't brought him down?  I guess my work is cut out for me.  You're right.  Time to take a break.   Bill here said I'm giving him flashbacks to another workaholic."

"Playstation, actually. Been that way since the first one, I was mainly into SOCOM US Navy SEALs, but that series died. Now it's 12 year olds screaming on Call of Duty..." Cam replied. "I got the Wii to play more casual stuff with people who come over. That and Rock Band...but I hide that whenever I have Vala come over. I don't know who introduced her to karaoke, but when I find them, I intend to have a very strongly worded conversation."

"Jackson doesn't, but c'mon, it's a Wii, it's supposed to be family friendly. I'm sure they can figure it out. I'm going to say I think he'll take Mario and Vala will take Samus. Maybe Peach." Cam said as he stepped aside to let Ky into the hall, since he'd been blocking the door by leaning in it.

"He's pretty irritating, but I've seen him get his. Plenty of times, actually, I just wish it'd stick. But discount Lex Luthor...yeah. I'm sure he's shaken a fist while saying "Curse you, SG-1. Curse you." at some point. Would not surprise me." Cam said with a chuckle.

The next stop was to collect Vala, and hopefully she wouldn't be too far from Daniel this time.

Dressed in shorts that could well be described as not quite for her age, a basketball singlet boasting the colours and motif of the Chicago bulls with sweat pouring from every inch of her skin, Vala looked as if she had spent the better part of the day and previous night in the gym. When in fact it was only the last hour. The give away that she was as usual having a ball was the wide toothed smirk she wore going almost ear to ear. "Aliens four, Earth one. You know Cameron there has to be a better team for Teal'c and I to go against than poor old Siler and Daniel."

There wasn't any particular reason she found herself down here, other than Samantha made some comment that Vala might see something interesting going on. The labs were always a fun place for anyone with a sciencey bent, Vala no; yet she was curious for just about anything that relieved the boredom of mission free downtime. There was also the mention of the new girl, a possible replacement for Samantha on the team now that she was going to be more focused on research here at the SGC. While sad to lose her off the team, Vala knew she'd always be here for her when the two friends needed each other's company. "Hello, you must be Kylee?" She said wiping another line of sweat from her brow.

"If he was actually like a true to form Lex Luthor we might actually have been beat.    Ever watch the cartoon?  Like, the good one?"
She could go on and on about how Paul Dini was a master of his craft but last thing she was going to do was geek out infront of her CO.   She offered a cheeky grin at that, then turned her attention to Vala.  Famous by word of mouth for being... interesting, Kylee observed her and sized her up.

"Thatta  be me."  She replied.  "They are apparently looking for a tech monkey for SG-1."

"Well, we don't have a tech expert and we were combat heavy, so hence the roster change." Cam added, "Wait...Teal'c is here? I thought...never mind." Cam shook his head.

"Besides the point. So, after you and Daniel clean up, I'd like to get the team together at my place. Nothing serious, just figure we could do with some more unwinding with Ba'al rolling around." Cam explained, "Plus, it'd help Kylee get better used to us off the field."

Cam was all too well aware of his status around here, and part of why he hated wearing his casual or service dress uniform was because at the top of his ribbon rack was the sky blue ribbon with five white stars across it - the Medal of Honor. People treated him more like a living legend than he wanted to be.

"Anyways, no liquor, nothing crazy. Figure maybe play some cards, I can break out some other stuff to do. Just something to unwind and have a little fun with." Cam continued.

"So glad to meet you and yes I know we, well Cameron here was earnestly looking for someone to take over Sam's focus on the team. We, erm he had a few choices most of which were turned down because of either personality clashes or they simply didn't have the off world experience that suited our team." There were a number of applicants, who wouldn't want to be on the flagship team; in the end it came down to ability and a set of creds that Vala was going to take it that Kylee had both.

"He came to see Sam and Jack socially. I bumped into him on his way back and asked if he had an hour to kill. The man cannot refuse me!" More likely Teal'c didn't want to see her pouting, or pester him with endless messages back to Ar'k'nath. She thought about Cam's unwinding scheme for a moment, then it struck her a promise he made ages ago. "Ten pin bowling. I mean Cameron you did say you'd show me and it is a team thing isn't it?" The concept of the game intrigued her and there was the angle of skill that appealed to her.

"So they've just said 'heck with it, let's get one fresh off Alphasite, huh?  I mean sure, granted that has a fair bit of off world training but I'm still a grasshopper here as far as the high octane alien action."  She says, though she hoped that didn't diminish herself, she was excited to be on an exploration team.

"I admit I've been focused more on the engineering side being my specialization, did alot more combat engineering on Alphasite, that was intense."
  Given what she meant was in combat engagements where she had to focus on combat AND figuring out a technical solution.  And bowling?  Oh no.

She hated bowling.  You'd think she'd love bowling but she hated it, an indescribable loathing she couldn't really explain.    Aside from the smell.  She couldn't hide it, she hated going to bowling places.   She resisted the urge to object to it, pressing her lips together as she offered a friendly smile.   

"Any chance for a rain check?" She finally asked.

"Let's do that another time. Besides, I think one of my two Wii Sports games has bowling in it. Assuming no one takes out my TV, we should have a good time with that to start. And I kind of set everything up at my place already." Cam replied, sensing that Ky was not warm on Vala's idea.

"...and Jackson is going off with Teal'c. Okay then." Cam said, checking his phone after it buzzed in his pocket.

"Well, if one of you doesn't mind the back seat, we can just take my car." Cam offered.

"Aww gee." Vala bit her lip as she often did feigning some slight at her suggestions.

"Well I suppose an evening in front of the TV can't be that bad can it?" Snacks, now for certain they had to have snacks and she did want to try out her newly acquired skills. "I suppose later we can think about it, the bowling I mean. I'll ride in back Cameron, so long as you take it nice and slow so I can watch the scenery. And since we're going to be spending some bonding time do you mind if I use your kitchen when we get to your place? I have something in mind that will help some of the time pass by nicely." That old cheesy grin fell into place as always.

"I have a suggestion.   I've got something in storage you guys might get a kick out of.  But videogames and TV?   Works for me." 
She said, offering a smile.  "Either way my thing's just a quick detour."

"Alright. We'll make the detour for Ky, and then I assume you need something from the store before you set about destroying my kitchen?" Cam said with a grin of his own as he fished out his car keys and led the way to the elevator.
