Checking in with the new Boss (Tag Capt. Cochrane)

Posted July 22, 2022, 7:18 p.m. by Lieutenant Issac Forgrave (Chief of Security) (William Deaton)

Forgrave checked the chrono on his wrist and grimaced. He hadn’t intended to spend so much time with Luna, but well… He had a bad habit of losing track of time when friendly critters were involved. And besides, he wanted to make sure she was at least somewhat comfortable before leaving her in his quarters. Granted, as true as that last bit was, as an excuse it was a half-truth at best - regardless of his newfound responsibility to Luna, he had neglected his other duties. It was safe to assume some leeway on one’s first day aboard a new ship, but that was an unofficial thing; not to be relied upon too heavily.

And if the captain’s even partway decent at their job, they oughta know I’ve been aboard fer a while now…
He tried to remember what little he’d read of Captain Cochrane, and came up short. Public records rarely conveyed one’s personality or attitude. He had a good impression of the XO, however - having already met the Orion woman. He suspected they’d be able to have a good working relationship, and in the end that boded well for the captain - worst case scenario, maybe she could smooth things over.

As his thoughts idled along, he feet kept moving at a swift pace; and it wasn’t long before he found himself outside of the Captain’s day quarters. Somewhere in the back of his mind, he was quite pleased with himself - he hadn’t had to check the PaDD for directions. But at the forefront, nerves crept up on him. It was the damnedest thing - he’d been fortunate (or unfortunate, more accurately) to have more than a bit of excitement during his tenure in Star Fleet so far, and it was rare that he ever balked at a task. But new ship, new boss… Void, I reckon there’s worse times ta get sweaty palms! With that cheery thought, he rapped smartly on the Captain’s door.
