As soon as the meeting after Luke’s arrival was done, Alex sent word to Faye that he was back and to be prepared for it. He then cleared his scheduled meeting with the Gravien Planetary Defence Council and sent word to Luke to meet him in the Officer’s Mess for a late lunch, if he cared to. Alex thought giving him a choice and seeing if showed would be the barometer for how his presence back on his ship would be. If he showed, ok… they might be able to have a civil discussion and hopefully get past… well… the past. If he didn’t show? Well…

It didn’t surprise Luke that Alex would want to see him so soon after all they needed to put the past where it was, in the past. The once Chief of Security officer had made some question choices and said some questions words but since then he’d grown and matured. That and been given a renewed interest.

Alex took a seat in the empty room. Harv came out and said “Oh, heya. Skipper. Didn’t expe-“ “Wyatt’s back, Harv. Civilian now. FedSec.” and he emphasized the last part. Harv nodded and said “You tell Calloway?” Alex nodded. “Ok. Reubens and beer coming up. Potato salad on the side.” and he disappeared into the kitchen.

“Captain” Luke said entering the officers mess, “Thankyou for your invitation, I hope I’m not late” he arrived knowing he wasn’t late but was keen to mind his manners and to build bridges with his host. “I didn’t think I’d be allowed in here anymore” he chuckled.

Alex looked up as Luke came in and he smiled a polite if not overly-friendly smile. “Special occasion. Harv is cleaning out the cold storage. You get to taste and tell him what’s gone bad or not.” and he laughed softly and held out his hand. “Have a seat.”

Taking the offer Luke sat down opposite Alex and settled into the seat. Looking around

Alex folded his hands on the table and looked at Wyatt. No sense beating around the bush. he thought silently and so he said “So why come back, Luke? Of all the places you could have gone… why back here? And what was with the lack of communication from your people?”

“I dont think there was really anywhere else for me to go, I was returning to the Delta Quadrant and I had despite the negatives roots here. I knew this ship and its crew and to my chain of command it made sense as for the lack of communication I think they get a buzz from ruffling a few feathers, I was given explicit orders not to contact you or anyone from this ship either during training or my journey here. I had a sneaky feeling that I was hand picked for this specific task.” Luke paused and then, “And even if it was my choice alone I think I’d still have picked this ship, I didn’t want to leave it how I left before.”
