Stark nodded, as cogs in the machinery of the Athena went, Karina’s actions were becoming more important by the day.

Benjamin flashed a smile to his junior officer, Karinna had always been an important part of the medical staff and he was glad that she was being recognized for it. He made a mental note to gather the other doctors for a celebratory drink or twelve.

Marishka raised her glass in silent toast to the doctor who had so recently restored her voice.
As the Captain’s speech began, Karina swallowed in nervousness. This was starting to sound more like a dressing down and she wondered if that was what was happening. As the pips were produced, she bit her lip and mentally chastised herself for her momentary thoughts. She should know better than to think she’d get a reprimand on such a time as this. But promotion just hadn’t crossed her mind. Commendation, maybe, but not promotion. As the additional collar tabs were added, she did manage to smile and nod. “Thank you, Captain. I’m just glad you all are safe.” She couldn’t think of anything else to say. Her stubbornness did deserve a reprimand, she was sure of it. But right now, she stood there, still slightly dazed and accepted the promotion with a smile.
She was definitely needing a drink or three after this.

“Dismissed, Lieutenant,” Koraia said with a wink.
For her next victim (or recipient of one preferred), Ghubari cast her gaze across the room until she landed on Delaney. “Isabel Delaney, front and centre,” she said with a gleam in her pale amber eyes.
For a moment she just considered the security officer before she finally decided to speak again. “You’ve been with us a long while now and never once have I had reason to doubt your commitment, or your willingness to step up when needed. We’ve all been through some difficult things and I know some have been put into more difficult positions than others.” She reached for another little box and pulled out a solid pip. Holding it deftly in her fingers, she reached out and removed Isabel’s hollow pip, replacing it with the solid one. “For your courage and your dedication, I hereby promote you to the rank of full Lieutenant, with all the rights, responsibilities and privileges therein.” She reached out a hand to Isabel. “Congratulations.” Delaney had come a long way and though she was still tackling personal demons, Koraia believed she had truly turned a corner while on the Athena. And that made her a very proud captain indeed.

Kaylee clapped her hands with each passing promotion. She was always happy to see crew members rewarded for a job well done. She looked over and signaled the bartender for another drink.
