Kyle and Marlaa had been chatting away arm in arm for a while before the turbo lift bringing them to Deck 34 of the ArkAngel slowed to a stop. Kyle had even stopped off at the nearest replicator to produce a bottle of white wine, if the rest of the crew was having a party, why couldn’t they? Kyle hadn’t really had chance to relax in a while and it occured to him that he quite liked the ship’s newest counselling officer, and thought there was no better place for him to get to know her than on one of her favourite areas of the ship.

Striding through the corridor, Kyle turned to Marlaa and arched an eyebrow, “How long do you think it’ll take before they notice we’re gone?”

-Lieutenant Kyle Anders: Chief of Security-

Marlaa had enjoyed the conversation between them that seemed far easier and more comfortable than she would have guessed. When he offered a bottle of wine and a stroll, she’d happily accepted.

As they stepped on Deck 34, she hardly noticed their location. They were on a ship, after all. It wasn’t as if he could get them lost. “My guess is the Captain has already noticed. As for the rest,” she gave a half shrug and smiled, “I’m guessing, by now, more and more have started slipping out.”

Strong into the corridor, she once more absently lifted the side of her dress with her free hand and let him take the lead. “So why did you choose Star Fleet? I know we have an appointment next week for your yearly eval, but this is a personal curiosity.” She laughed lightly. “You can give a more official answer next week for the record.”


“Keeping up the family legacy lass,” Kyle said with a fond grin, “I grew up on the Nightengale, both my parents were Starfleet Security on that ship, I grew up around people determined to defend their ships, guess you could say I caught t’bug.”

-Kyle Anders-

Marlaa nodded. “You aren’t the first with that answer. It surprises me, sometimes, just how many legacies are in The Fleet. And in space, in general. I mean, to be honest, a few more generations and folks remaining on Earth will probably be a bigger rarity than those in space.”

“Was there ever any other field you considered? Or were you always a phasers out, first one in kind of person?” While most questions she asked folks were to deliver into troubles, or check their mental balance, she found that she was genuinely curious about Kyle. She wanted to get to know him, not just as the Security Chief, but as a peer and friend.
