Revna shrugged with a small laugh, “I have no idea, yet. I haven’t really done much. I attended a few dinners during my ‘training’ and then there was my interview of course…that was fun,” Revna grinned wickedly. “I suppose it’s not all the different than what I’ve been doing with my da since I was younger. Similar skill set as being a counselor, but I’ve not really had to do anything yet. I guess I’ll see soon though. I have a dinner and meeting with a delegation from Ilidaria at the end of the week. They are fairly friendly, or so I’ve been told.”

“Better you than me,” Faye said with a laugh. “Though I suppose I better improve my diplomacy skills or else I’ll be a crap commander.” A chuckle rumbled through her throat. “Though I’m sure whatever crew I eventually lead will be given a disclaimer before I arrive. Something about dropping your expectation because this ride is going to be unlike any you’ve been on. That being said, I’ll take any tips you think they might not tell us in the program.”

“Hmmm....I’ll keep notes.” Revna thought about it a bit, “Though the first thing I will say, from all my experience, bluster and threats are usually because the person is afraid. Not all, some cultures are different. But if they aren’t afraid and are confident they don’t need to bluster. So when they are afraid, the trick is knowing if they will back down or if they feel they are cornered. And that just takes experience.”

Faye nodded. “Not unlike my freighter days,” she said with a tiny grin. “Before I joined Starfleet I worked on all sort of ships doing odd jobs to get by. Encountered all sorts. A lot of it is trusting your instincts about a situation and knowing how to get yourself out of it if you miscalculate,” she added with a laugh. Ahhh, one of these days she should take a moment to look up Captain Jerk and see what became of him. But Faye also was scared to know and at this point knew it was better she didn’t. Though she did think Dirk Jensson would be terribly proud to see what had become of her all these years later.
