It had been a little over a week now since the Asimov had returned what they called “normal space”. Siadra and Liara had begun to slowly settle in on the ship. Their bags and moving boxes were unpacked. Siadra had reported in with her new Captain. They had dinner with Si’Rek and had already explored the ship. At least to a certain degree. Liara was slowly starting to be a little less anxious and to settle down a little. And Siadra was beginning to get used to her new duties as First Officer. Yet among all that, she noticed that she hadn’t even begun to really get to know the crew. And while she knew that that would take time, she at least wanted to make an effort sooner rather than later when it came to the senior staff. So without thinking about it twice, she sent out an invite to all of them that read:
Dear fellow senior officers,
as your new First Officer, I would like to get to know all of you a little better and hereby invite you all to dinner in my quarters. Two days from now at 1900 hours. Wearing your uniform is not necessary unless you feel more comfortable doing so.
Two days later, Siadra waited for the senior officers to arrive. For what felt like the millionth time, she checked that everything was ready before checking herself once again in the mirror. Her long red hair was pulled back in a simple braid and she was dressed in a simple, but elegant navy blue dress that ended just above her knees. Liara was wearing her favourite dress: a cute pink one with tulle and ruffles and quite some glitter. Her long mane of tiny dark curls framed her face and slender body and she seemed both nervous and excited at the same time.
