Lazol had pulled some strings and worked out a plan. He had indeed had time to cool off and was far more level headed. Had that changed his decision? Not at all, but it was about finding the right person and the right fit. He wasn’t that man and anyone worth their salt knew it. He knew this might blacklist him again, but he wanted to help, he truly cared for those onboard the Leviathan, but he couldn’t in good conscious abandon his ties to the outside universe for the sake of an anomaly. He stood at the door with PaDD in hand and rang the chime, not knowing at all what was about to happen beyond those doors.

“Come,” came a weary, yet still commanding, call from inside. Stepping in, Lazol would find Roebuck alone, at his desk, and with a large whiskey clasped between his hands. Evidently the meeting had taken a toll on the Admiral, his usually handsome features overcast with an anxious frown.

“DaiMon Lazol,” he exhaled at the sight of his visitor. “How can I help you? Or is it Captain Cobb who you seek?”

“Admiral the first thing you should know is that I do not intend to apologize for what I said, but how I said it. I am under the impression that you’re sending in the Leviathan to undergo a mission that she may not return from, and is one in a line of ships that have entered and so far the rest have not yet returned. Am I right in saying that?” Lazol said as the doors shut behind him. He noted the whiskey and it’s brand. He would be sending a bottle or two sooner or later. “What I want to say Admiral is that there is a level of decorum and tact that I did not display, one you and Captain Cobb are due given your experience and your position in this department and larger organization. Do know however that I will not be on that ship, however I do have another in mind, should you wish to hear my thoughts. The man I wish for you to consider is a Dominion War veteran with decades of experience in chemistry, biology, and agricultural sciences. While he might not sound like the most skilled when it comes to anomalies, he is the perfect leader for a department who takes the eccentrics and wildcards of Starfleet sciences and puts them in a room with things of untold power and knowledge then tells them to poke that thing with a stick.”

Lazol at this point sat down across from the Admiral and loosened his shoulders and expression, “The next thing Admiral is that I want to offer my services to the Leviathan in my status as a trader businessman. I will work to keep the ship supplied and provisioned outside of Starfleet’s channels and all I ask is that you compensate me for the materials at wholesale value. No markups, no fees, nothing. Do understand Admiral that I have grown to care for these people and they mean something to me. I have my reasons for not going that Cobb is aware of and if you wish to know, I ask that you consult him. But I can run a few cargo ships with holographic crews of to run shipments or even join along their journey. If my ships are destroyed than I will be the one to swallow the cost, but I don’t want to see those people, those good people, thrown to the wolves.”

Lazol, ex-CSO
