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 make those analyses from just simulations and notes or did you actually get to examine the species?”

Jethro’s question surprised Aaron. No one has asked him questions about his papers, since he didn’t expect other Starfleet Officers to read them, apart from the main scientific department, and having someone in front of him who read them in front of him makes him grin. “You really read them? Well, I’m flattered.”

The smile on Jethro’s face grew wider as he could sense the Lieutenant’s excitement and see the surprise of peer recognition come across the man’s face. On a busy starship it was hard for people to note ones’ private work outside their job on the ship, unless it was something that effect all of Starfleet. With all his life spent on starships and surround by researchers, Jethro knew this well. He was glad he could bring a small pick-up to his department head’s day.

“Yes, I read them. I like to know the people I’m working with, and there is no better way to do that then by their work. My father always said, ‘People put more of their soul into their work then they realize.”

He couldn’t help but talk about his research: “In fact, I met some species that helped me build some of my papers, but most of those species were either unable to reach or extremely dangerous, which means I based my studies on Starfleet’s Data a lot of time. But since I prefer to talk about anatomy and physical evolution than social interactions, simulations don’t bother me, even though a real organic subject is always better. “

Realizing he was talking a bit too much, Aaron focused: “But if the subject is interesting you, you can talk to me anytime during off-duty. Therefore, how about we dealt with your reporting in ?”

(OOC: Great idea to bring the xenobiology studies of Aaron! If you want to expand your character background during this post, feel free to, even though you already wrote a lot about him! Plus, don’t hesitate to fill the gaps in between the paragraphs to add reactions from your character, if you want to. I think I’ve done it earlier in this thread, if you want an example.)

Jethro crossed his arms in a relaxed manner as he listened the Lieutenant talked excitedly.

“I would very much like to discuss it sometime.”

Taking a seat in the chair in front of the office desk, his eyes flicked to the PADD on the Lieutenant’s desk that display his personal file. Jethro know what it said.

But what it must be like to read it from a third party point of view.

He couldn’t help smile as a memory of one the infractions came to mind. How he a Klingon cadet decided to reenact a battle Kahless to help another friend study for a xenoliterature exam. Well…both participants got swept up in the passion of the reenactment. Both cadets, him and the Klingon spent a nice night in detainment. But their friend passed the test.

“Of course, Lieutenant. Do have any questions for me? Im happy and excited to discuss my assignment aboard this ship.”

(OOC: Thanks for the formatting advise, I like it! Hoped you enjoyed reading Jethro’s bio!)
