Alex smiled slightly and said “Didn’t take it as judgment. It was more of a… warning… than anything else. And while I certainly understand your desire for food in stasis, I can’t commit that amount of power to a ‘what if’ scenario. So I suppose you and I will burn that particular bridge when we get to it. Otherwise, talk with Harv. The man is almost irritating with his ability to find ingredients.” and he took a drink. “Now, you are allowed to dine in the Mess with the ship’s officers. Part of the arraignment with the Ambassador is that you are considered a Department Head for purposes of information dissemination and access. And since you have access here, you can bring up to two guests per week. That can of course be amended for diplomatic purposes. So small dinners should pose no problems. It will be the larger conferences that will require a more cooperative approach. And we will, of course, have a security presence at all of those. Is that acceptable?”

Cochrane, CO

Revna knew it was a long shot and for small amounts small self sufficient stasis boxes could be used, but for a large party it wouldn’t be enough. And she certainly understood the need to not waste ship’s power resources on such a thing. A small grin crossed her face, “Consider me properly warned. Though I learned a long time ago chefs and bartenders don’t like their territories encroached upon. I shall tread lightly and respectfully.” I shall learn from my sister’s mistake. That reminded her, she still had to get out of Mike exactly why he needed a dress… She nodded making mental note of the information, “More than acceptable Captain, thank you.” She didn’t want to take up too much of his time, but the hour wasn’t quite up yet. “Tell me captain, what is the most unique encounter you’ve had so far?”

Cochrane thought for a moment and then said “Tough question. So first off, do you mean here in Delta? Or in my career?”

Cochrane, CO

“I suppose it would be prudent to say here in Delta, but I meant more in general than just your career, but in your life time.”

McKenzie, DA

Cochrane thought for a moment and then said “Well, when I was on the Shambala… deep space exploratory vessel… we found a planet with a pre-warp civilization on it. Probably mid-seventeenth century Earth in technological development. Human, as well… which was odd considering there are zero records of humans in that system. But we kept getting readings of nuclear power from all the major cities. Never could pin-point the source. Anyway… while they seem to have been progressing similarly to Earth, they had one social norm that was… odd. No clothes. None. Not a stitch anywhere.” and he chuckled. “Made for an interesting Away Team mission.”

Cochrane, CO

Her eyebrows went up but there was laughter in her voice, “Really? That’s actually fascinating. Humans without the taboos related to nudity. I’m sure the ship’s counselor had a great deal of work after that.” Many species, especially humans were very taboo about nudity and she was sure the away team probably had a lot of confusion and awkwardness about it. “But what I’m really curious about is how their bodies adapted to extreme weather changes, sun exposure, and the like.”
McKenzie, DA

Cochrane shrugged. “No idea. We didn’t make direct contact. But I do know that there is a surveillance team permanent there. Hmm, I might see if I can pull those reports. See what they’ve found.” and he shook his head and refocused. “So what about you? How did you go from Star Fleet Counselor to recently married Diplomat?”

Cochrane, CO
