The final visit as part of his arrival procedure was now due, and Than reflected on the lack of time he had spent visiting or talking to ships counselors on any of his previous postings. Not that he thought the role of a ships counselor was in any way not required or extraneous, no, it was simply that he had never felt the need to unload or settle his mind. He had always used exercise, sport, or creative outlets for that and his tendency to overthink in his opinion, helped him resolve anything his mind was having issues with. Well aware that overthinking was often seen in a negative light and a way to stress ones mind needlessly or convolute a situation, he always felt that it was a positive asset for him.

Lost in that train of thought, he soon found himself outside the Counseling suite and reaching for the door chime. This class had a Counseling specific area for the CNS and the team assigned to the ship, so he hadn’t made an appointment expecting that someone would probably be free. If not, he could detour to the lounge for lunch and come back when there was an opening.

With the chime having been rung, the Engineer stood back across the hall and leaned against the wall, hands casually in his pockets and his foot resting on the wall behind him as he waited.

Laural tapped the final key on her computer to finish her thought on her latest appointment when the universe, having seemingly sensed she was not eager to return to her paperwork, seemed to provide an answer to her hopes in the form of a new visitor. “Come in,” she called out eagerly, the doors responding to her voice command by opening swiftly. She came around her desk, grav chair admitting a slight hum as she did so.

Once the doors opened the Chief pushed himself off the wall by the foot that was resting, and stepped inside. Placing one hand on the doorframe as he stepped through Than paused and looked at the woman, and then the chair she was sitting in and tilted his head slightly.

“Is that a Rhodes Industries Gravmobil GT?” His lips broke into a grin and he stepped further inside, gesturing with his other hand as he did so. “It has the velvet wall lining and the recessed cup holders right? Oh plus the enhanced power pack with the solar collector for use off-grid? Those are amazing!”

Remembering where he was for a moment, Than stood up straight and rubbed the back of his head. “Oh, uh, I’m Than Osedi, the ships new Chief Engineer. I’m supposed to visit you for my sanity check, but I didn’t make an appointment, sorry. Am I interrupting anything?”
