Janna couldn’t help but give a conspiratorial grin. “Did you know the captain dances?” she said to Isabel. “Not just what we’ve seen her do in public, but apparently when she was younger, she studied ballet and that’s what got her started in dance. I wonder if she could be coerced into attending a class…” It was one of things that could go really well or terribly wrong when approaching your commanding officer about a personal hobby. Koraia had admitted it on more than one occasion that she had gathered from other people’s remarks, but getting her dance in public? It felt like the kind of coup junior officers needed fro m time to time.

Isabel’s eyebrows rose in surprise. Her last captain probably would have been caught dead doing any sort of dancing. In fact, for him, anything that was not emotionless and standoffish was more his style than expressing himself in any other way than authoritative. She had to surpress her amusement behind a sip of her drink. “Well,” She said with a grin, “I think that would be a great idea.”

Marishka had been taking notes while they spoke.

“I think I’m free for an early lunch tomorrow Janna, if that suits you. And I think dancing is an excellent opportunity for anybody brave enough to get to know one another a bit better. Thank you for the suggestions.” she said with a smile.

Izzy gave the woman a small salute.

“I’d join in the dancing, but, as the humans say, I have two left feet when it comes to human dancing styles.” Luka spoke up, giving a slight grin. “I wish you the best of luck though.”

Karina smiled. “I wouldn’t mind joining that class as well. And on the subject. I think each department coming up with some kind of program or schedule to see to everyone on the ship getting some good activity time would be good as well. Ship crews have lots of down time between missions. And when the missions happen, physical fitness is called upon, sometimes on a moments notice. Having everyone participate in a physical activity would keep those senses fine tuned.” She knew it was a lot to ask in a burst like that. But then again, she had the ear of several people. Why not bring it up?

Conner watched the conversation a few moments and approached. He stood quietly for a natural break point then smiled and indicated an empty chair. “ Sorry but is anyone sitting there?” He asked with a smile.

“Please, do join us,” she said with a warm smile. “I’m Janna. You’re new on the Athena, aren’t you?” While she got to meet a lot of the crew, she was only one of six counsellors and it was impossible to meet all eleven hundred people that could be on the ship at any given time.

Conner smiled in return and sat. “Yes,” He said happily and held a hand out, “ I’m Cadet Conner Quinn, I’m on Placement here in medical.”

Karina smiled. “Welcome… we were just discussing a possible dance class for those interested.” She poured a glass of ice water and passed it to the newest member of the table.

Doctor

Accepting the water with a thanks Conner laughed. “Two left feet here I’m am afraid but it sounds interesting.” He took a sip and listened to the conversation.

Luka nodded slightly, pulling her presence back a little and allowing the JOs to mingle without her interruptions. She glanced at her U.R.I., at the list of people whom she had invited and noticed a few individuals had not arrived yet. Hmm. She pinged them, re-sending the invitation.

“Two left feet sounds like a good reason not to attend a dance class, but you never know if two left feet is only a temporary thing. Afterall, one of the points of dance is to better your body.”

Delaney, Sec

Conner laughed. “I may actually cause more damage than good to be fair, I’ve tried to learn before. Too many times I’ve had to apologise or give medical treatment to my partner for bruised toes.” He winked and grinned,
