Side Sim - 8 Forward

Posted June 27, 2022, 5:27 p.m. by Lieutenant Alexander Carpenter (Chief Science Officer) (Adrien Jouve)

Tonight the lounge was pretty calm. Although one or two Ensigns were present, talking about their day, Alexander was alone in it, sitting in one of the lounge’s seats. A brandy in his hand, he was enjoying the view. From the pane was nothing but stars in the emptiness of space, filled with undiscovered planets and species.
Alexander finished his brandy, careful not to waste a single drop of the liquid. It was a habit he had since his childhood, not to waste water. Although life was easier on a ship than in the desert he couldn’t help but kept his old habits.

Standing up from his chair, the Lieutenant walked toward the bar and put his empty glass on it. “Another one, please”, he said to the waiter. He saw the man was still looking at him, not used to seeing his golden eyes which makes him uneased. The waiter quickly gave him his drink before doing something else.
This time, Alexander stayed at the bar to drink, instead of going back to his seat, listening to the Ensign’s whispers and to the familiar hum that resonates in the whole ship.
