Casela was in a good mood, and that was rare and far between. ‘Well’ she grinned, ‘it used to be.’ But she really needed to curb it. People were going to think she was soft and she just couldn’t tollerate that. It was bad enough her staff was laughing at her. She knew they meant it in a good way, but still. What kind of scary counselor was she if they were laughing?

Either way she pulled her thoughts away from the now public knowledge of her relationship with Ryder and entered Jormungander Lounge. She peeked at the fish in Cobb’s fish tank and found a table to sit down at. She’d asked Surda and Quinn to join her there. Surda had a great security team. But she, Quinn, and herself had unique skills and it never hurt to keep them honed. The idea was to practice together, but it never hurt to have a group that already had contingency plans in place incase something went sideways on a ship. And why not them? They all knew how to keep a secret. Surda had a strong sense of loyalty and was a force to be reckoned with. Casela, well she had her unique access, contacts, and was also loyal to a fault. And Quinn. Well…Casela grinned, there wasn’t anything Quinn wouldn’t do for the captain....and crew of course. Casela mentally smacked herself. Really she needed to get her mind off of match making and back to work. Speaking of which....Surda…hmmm?

Surda came into the room silently as ever, but with a grin on her face. She didn’t have very many social opportunities on the Striker, but she’d missed it. In fact… how long had it been since she was called by her first name? She shook her head. Her mind was wandering into inconsequential things. “We’re just waiting on one more now, no? I hear she’s your protégé.” She had heard many other things as well, but the protégé part she was pretty sure was true. She swept into the seat across from Casela, but what would usually be accompanied by rustling fabric was conspicuously quiet. A well-practiced skill of hers. She gave Casela a small smile, silently thanking her for the invitation.

OOC: By first name I mean the first-ever name she was given, not the name which comes first in her full name.
-Surda, CoS

Casela laughed, “I wouldn’t say protégé, but I have been working with her. She has a very unique natural talent for fighting. But she’s short so we’ve been working on using that to her advantage. Quinn Kindle, captain’s yeoman. She’s something else. Also part of RTF and giving the more experienced RTF crew a run for their money.” She admired Surda’s ability to move without noise. Silent movement and unseen movement were different skills, but tended to go hand in hand, but not everyone could master both. “I heard Cobb the other day referring to the three of us as his ‘Angels’ and was rather pleased with himself over it. I did some digging and it’s an old Earth media show. The idea was this man, and it never says exactly who or what he is, hires three women to do covert work for him. I thought it might not actually be a bad idea. Here lately we’ve been getting a lot of shuttles coming in and out of the bay and who knows what being delivered. I wanted to know your opinion of having a little group of us that isn’t necessarily there for ARU/RTF or basic security. And the three of us have a unique way of watching what is going on around the ship.”

“We are excellently suited for that sort of work.” Surda wasn’t sure she could really be called an Angel, but as a reference, it would work. “I like it. The three of us would fill the role well.” She did want to meet Quinn though. “I have some weapons that were designed for a Tellarite pirate crew. Is she short enough that she might like them?” How she got the weapons would have to stay a secret.
-Surda, CoS

Casela grinned, “I think we are, thought I think the name is a bit of a misnomer. Probably one that the captain will take great pride in using. As for the weapons she just might. When she gets you can ask her.” Casela sipped at her water, called over the bartender so Surda could get something while they waited for Quinn.

OOC: She’s on LOA so we can keep chatting or wait till she gets back....whichever you want to do .
Lt Synthi-er, CNS

Surda nodded and ordered some fruit juice. “I vote we dress up as these angels for the next one of those Halloween celebrations.” She took a sip, then shrugged. “I just hope no one gets the wrong impression.”
-Surda, CoS

Casela laughed softly, “I don’t think that anyone would believe I’m an angel.” She did however pull out a PaDD and pulled up the details of the reference she’d found, and pass it to Surda. “Though I don’t think these women were really angels either. But I like the idea. They each had special skills put to good use and they worked well together.”
Lt. Synthi-er, CNS

Surda nodded as she looked at the PaDD. “I always thought Angels had wings.” She scrolled through some of the images then grinned and flipped the PaDD around. “I do like the style though.” It was exactly the sort of thing she used to wear, tight, black, and somewhat revealing.
-Surda, CoS

Casela laughed, getting the attention of some others in the lounge, and they all looked a little shocked and then quickly looked away. “I do like the style. Looks easy to move in and just enough…” she winked. She used to wear stuff like that when she was out working alone. “New uniforms? Think Cobb would go for it?”
Lt. Synthi-er, CNS

Surda grinned mischievously. “I’m sure some people would…” She always attracted attention visually, but uniforms like that would make them more than a bit distracting. “It might lower overall productivity though.”
-Surda, CoS

Quinn walked in and grinned cheekily at her friend and for lack of better word mentor, the security officer Quinn knew from roster and comments from Cobb, though she had not as of yet spoken with her in person. She walked quietly to the table eyeing to two taller ladies. “Sorry for keeping you waiting.” She would explain the reason for her lateness if asked but if not she would let it be.

Quinn Kindle, Yeoman, R T F

Casela pushed out a chair with her foot, “Have a seat Quinn. Have you met Surda yet? If not Surda meet Quinn, Quinn meet Surda. We all know each other now? Good!” She was in a particularly good mood at the moment. “Everything okay?”
Lt Synthi-er, CNS

Quinn gave a cheeky grin, as she sat down in a smooth silent motion. “Nice to meet you,” she said looking at Sir Da and then nodded at Cas. “Fine. Took longer than I expected to sort through letters from home, seems some joker had all my mail rerouted and I just got it straightened out.” She left it unsaid that she fullly intended to find whomever messed with her personal correspondence and deal with them in her own way. Prank for a prank after all. Though it was more personal since they messed with her mail.

“It’s my pleasure,” Surda purred, smiling warmly to Quinn. “We were just discussing our rather interesting nickname, bestowed by the Captain himself.” She looked to Casela, knowing the other woman would take the cue, and the chance to tease a bit.
-Surda, CoS

Casela waved the bartender over to get Quinn a drink. She passed her the PaDD with the ‘uniforms’ Costumes from the original TV series. “We were discussing this nick name Cobb has given us: Cobb’s Angels. We could wear those. I’m not sure he sees me as an angel though? Maybe a terror that hides under the bed at night. But I’m sure one of you he considers an angel.” She didn’t want to tease Quinn too much. “But we all have a unique set of skills and I was wondering if perhaps we could put them to use and learn to work them together. It would make for a very unique and elite team on board. That doesn’t just focus on anomaly containment and recovery.”
Lt Synthi-er, CNS

Quinn blinked a moment before she let out a delighted laugh. “I love it. The nickname is awesome.” The good natured teasing she wasn’t going to comment on. Yet. “What do you have in mind?”

Quinn Kindle, Yeoman, R T F, Cobb’s Angel


Surda leaned forwards, ready to expound on the tactical advantages. “We are uniquely oriented as far as security goes. The two of you have access and insight that my security teams can only dream of. On top of that, three women, clearly comfortable being used as the first line of defense?” She grinned darkly. “That can be terrifying.”
-Surda, CoS

Casela chuckled darkly, “The advantage of being a woman. Even in our advanced society many often make the mistake of seeing femininity as being softer or weaker. And between the three of us we have some unique talents that they will never see coming. And people see what they want to see. It doesn’t matter what we tell them, they won’t believe it. And good costumes always help. If I walk like an old woman, that is what they will see and never look at me twice.”
