He took a step off the main through-way and activated his combadge.

Aaron has just finished his shower. The hot water has made him a bit sleepy, and he would have preferred to have a nap, but duty was calling him. Putting his clothes on, his combadge beeped and delivered to him Avant’s message :

=^= Cadet Jethro Avant to Lieutenant Williams. I arrived on board the Challenger. I was wondering if you were free for a Check-in Meeting? =^=

-Cadet Erik Jethro Avant (Scientist)
Taking his combadge, he put it on the left side of his chest and tapped on it: “Understood Cadet. Meet me at my office.” He then took his PaDD laying in a corner of his bed, stepped out of his room, and walked toward the turbolift, which he took.

Arriving in front of his office, he enters. The cadet wasn’t here yet. Well, I’ll wait for him, he thought. Approaching the room’s replicator, he ordered: ” Coffee, Doppio, Hot.” The drinks appeared with the usual light effect. Aaron takes the coffee and felt the heat of the cup warming up his hand. He moves toward his desk, sat on his chair, and leans back, sipping a bit of his coffee.

Lieutenant JG Aaron Williams - CSO

=^= On my way. =^= Jethro Replied to the CSO’s acknowledgement.

Readjusting the duffle bag strap on his shoulder, he headed to the nearest turbo lift and entered it.

“CSO’s Office.” He spoke out load to the lift’s computer and the the lift whirled to life carrying the new cadet to his destination.

The hum of the turbo lift’s mechanics faded off into the distance as Jethro became lost in his thoughts. It had been what?…Eight years since he was last on starship for more then a day or two’s journey. Four years planet-side in San Francisco and four years before that in Okinawa. But, now he was back where be belonged. Jethro’s hand glide along the paneling the of the tubro lift. Smooth and impeccable, the Challenger sure was the top of her line.

Wait till I get my hands on your sensors, girl.

The lift’s stooped, the doors opening the his desired deck.

It wasn’t long before Jethro reached Lieutenant William’s office. Just for a brief minute, he paused outside the office door taking a breath. This was it. This was a start of a new adventure for him. The adventure that he had been waiting for all his life. Taking the time to quickly fixed uniform again and walked through the office doors. The digital chiming of the door rang as he did. When he walked into the room, he saw who must have been the the Chief Science Officer, Lieutenant JG Aaron Williams, sitting behind his desk sipping his coffee. In a swift motion, Jethro unshouldered his duffle back and stood at attention.

“Cadet Erik Jethro Avant, Science - reporting for duty aboard the Challenger, Lieutenant.”

Jethro could not keep a small smile off his face when he said those words.

Aaron raised his head. “Well, welcome aboard, Cadet”, he said with a smile. Putting his cup on the desk, he stood up and took his PaDD. The cadet’s file was displayed, and Aaron was reading it before Jethro stepped in, but he didn’t have the time to read it completely.

Trying to put the cadet at ease, he asked: “Would you like something to drink ?”

Lieutenant JG Aaron Williams - CSO

Jethro relaxed from the at-attention posture when the Lieutenant welcomed him into his office. He remained standing however, Williams was a superior officer after all and he did not need another infraction on his record for near-insubordinate tendencies. Judging by the PADD laying on the the Lieutenant’s desk, he had already become with such tendencies, or was getting close to. Out of most Starfleet cadets, Jethro assumed that his records were a bit more colorful. Not that he would change it one bit.

I wonder what type of leader he is going to be. Is he going to chew me out or find my exploits amusing. I’ve encountered both.

“Thank you, Lieutenant and no I am good on the refreshment front,” Jethro extended his hand in greeting to his department head with a smile. “I read some of your papers on xenobiology, thought it’s far from my field of expertise, I found them completely intriguing. I was curious if you were able to male those analyses from just simulations and notes or did you actually get to examine the species?”
