Reaching for the water, she took another sip before she once again poured herself a little more whiskey. She was still drinking but with a bit of sense. Such as it was. She shook her head before taking a sip. “Not early on. It was really great. I loved dat place. There was so much freedom to explore. Try stuff. Buh when it did change, it was hard. We were fighting fer our lives, even if others fel’ we were on de wrong side.” She shrugged.
“Starfleet d’ough. More complicated. I… think I would have left Tracken evenshually. Pretty, but boring.” Faye smirked. “I learn t’ings too quickly. ‘Ave to keep pushin’ ahead, learnin’ new things. After some years of bein’ aimless, I knew I needed, I dunno, structure. Discipline, even. And…” Her voice dropped a bit and she sipped her drink some more. “I suppose it was a way to make amends, in a way.”
“A better and worthier reason than most, when I joined people just wanted a bit of the action, the federation hadn’t faced war and it brought the good and the bad out in people.” He shifted his weight, “Are you going to be staying long? Or is your next assignment around the corner?” He wasn’t sure why he wanted to know, perhaps he didn’t want to invest time on someone who was going to leave so quickly, he also wanted to know if she’d be trying to track down her real handler but knew that to be a far more sensitive and recent topic.

Well, that was the question, wasn’t it? But while everything had been turned upside down multiple times over and given a shake for good measure, there were certain things that were still true. Faye finished off the glass of whiskey and set it down on the coffee table with a clunk.
“Dis is my assignment, Luke.” She said his name as if it were a punctuation mark. It was fun to say! Luke. Luke. Luke. Faye smirked. “I’ll show you my work soon bu’ it needs me here to monider and adjust. Besides, here in de Delta Quadrant, you want me here in case big bad t’ings sow up.” Faye leaned in, her usually stormy eyes bright. “I’m dat good.” She patted his leg as she sat back up a bit. “Don’t worry, I’ll be ‘ere to piss you off another day.”
