Meeting the CO

Posted on Fri Dec 16th, 2016 @ 2:34pm by Commander Sular Vivano & Ensign Kollin Igh

Mission: Shakedown
Location: The Bridge

Such was Kollin's eagerness to meet the CO, she failed to notice that the uniformed officer she knocked into on entering the Bridge was none other than the CO himself. On looking round the various stations of the bridge Kollin decisively stepped towards the door to the left of the bridge. Kollin was impatient to begin her duty shift and disliked the rituals surrounding introductions, she barked into the intercom "Is this the CO's Ready Room?", a pause from the other side of the door, a measured reply came through loud and clear "Yes".

On entering the Ready Room Kollin tried to conceal her horror at recognising the face of the CO.

Sular shook his head as he looked over the console at Ops. The refit was still going to be done on time but there was no way to speed it up any faster. He hated this sitting and waiting but that was him. Picking up his PaDD he turned to head towards his ready room when he was collided into by another officer. The other officer just kept on going without an apology or by your leave. He nearly said something however given his mood he was likely to do more than give a verbal dress down. He headed into his ready room and took a seat at his desk.

He was going over the daily reports when he heard a voice. He raised an eyebrow at the tone. It seemed everyone wanted to get under his skin today. As the officer entered it was almost to comical. It was the same officer that had knocked into him just minutes earlier. His arms crossed his chest as he just stared at her. He let the look on his face as well as the silence carry his message across.

Kollin measured the silence, realising she was being reprimanded an old feeling rose from her bellies; a feeling she had not experienced even during Academy training, but now on her first operational post and in front of the Commander, she realised she would have to control her Qay.

"Ensign Igh reporting for duty Sir"

Sular raised an eyebrow. "Ensign is it...." He tapped on the console at his desk. "Ah here we are..Operations Officer. Well Ensign..while I understand your primary duty is the ships resources and the systems on board. It would be wise for you to watch out for those of us that might be unknowingly in your way. It is a definite way of meeting the rest of the crew. However, I'm not sure that is the type of meeting you would want to have with them."

Kollin bit her lip and nodded her head in agreement, "point taken Commander". Kollin was unsure what to do next and asked the Commander if she needed to report to the Senior Operations Officer. "Im keen to meet my supervisor to talk over the operational systems on board before the first assignment Sir".

Sular nodded. "That would be wise. First however, report to Ops and get your berth assignment. Get your gear stowed and settled in then report to your department head. Welcome to the Armageddon Ensign, dismissed."
