Back again…

Juliet sighed as she stepped off the lift and turned towards the Commander’s office. The RTF Commander had changed since her departure a few months ago. It was time to introduce herself to her new supervisor.

As she palmed the come to announce herself, it occurred to her that he wouldn’t know her background, either. So much had happened in so short a time she absently wondered how many of the original RTF team were still around, too.

Sighing, she took a deep breath and let it out awaiting permission to enter. A hand absently tugged at the collar of her uniform before rising to be sure her coiled hair was still neat.

“Come in,” Jahok’s voice rang loud and clear from behind the closed doors of his office. The commander sat behind his desk, working away at his many reports and paperwork. The RTF commander’s office was practically barren. All of the previous commander’s furniture and personal belongings were removed and nothing were put back in place. There were empty art displays around the room and along the walls, which made the room feel far colder and impersonal . Jahok had not bothered to repopulate the office with chairs or decorations at this moment. Perhaps once he felt suitably caught up with his work, and prepared for their next mission he will bring in a decorator. Until then, there was only his desk, the desk console, his chair and a second chair pulled from somewhere. “Have a seat, would you care for refreshment? There is a replicator in this office.”

Juliet came in and didn’t hide the look in her face at the lack of personalization. While her previous Commander, the Breen hadn’t bothered with a bunch of superfluous decor, there had at least been some personal items. Seeing the starkness left her both relieved and curious. Relieved he didn’t bother to color up the place for other people’s comfort. But also curious that he had absolutely nothing there.

At the offer of refreshments, she politely shook her head and took a seat, shifting it slightly to place the door that was behind her on the periphery of left side vision. It left her at a slightly awkward angle to the desk. “No, thank you.” Neither of the previous supervisors would have considered offering anything. Another anomaly with the man before her.

While Juliet answered, Jahok studied her. Since he arrived aboard the Leviathan, Jahok took the time to familiarize himself with every security and RTF officer under his command. Juliet’s file seemed. . . lacking. Perhaps while speaking with her he’ll learn more of that little mystery.

“Thank you for seeing me, Sir. I’m Juliet Anders, though I’m sure you know that. I admit I’m at a bit of a loss because I hadn’t been informed of my transfer till I arrived. I figured, besides checking in, if offer up some answers to, what I’m sure, is a myriad of questions.”

She sat in the chair with the air of someone both relaxing and ready to jump at a moment’s notice. Unless he looked specifically for it, her almost en guard demeanor wasn’t obvious. Most in the ship would take her actions as someone simply not wanting to be in the man’s presence.


Jahok could tell that the EN was tense, and could make several guesses as to why. Idle speculation, however, was pointless at this time. He must go by what he has on hand from her file, and what Juliet tells him herself. “In your file, it states you previously held the rank of lieutenant but were demoted to Ensign. Explain to me what happened and why you were demoted.” Jahok had the official Starfleet story, but he wanted to hear it in her own words. His expression was blank, but his words were firm. Below this stern exterior was a curiosity. This seemingly interrogative question was actually a test.
