Side Sim - It's Been a While, But...

Posted Jan. 12, 2021, 10:53 a.m. by Lieutenant Commander Daggum Hammor (Chief Operations Officer) (James Sinclair)

Hammor had settled down for the evening, but his mind was restless. Something was nagging at the back of his mind and he couldn’t grasp it…

He was missing something. Something important. Five days aboard and he was getting in the groove, but something was missing.

He got up off the couch and went to his desk, and started going through his ever-present list of tasks. Nothing. Nothing eased his mind. Getting frustrated, he stood up nd went to the bedroom. In the closet, he retrieved his gym bag. “Haven’t checked out the gym, no time like the present.” he thought to himself. As he walked out of the bedroom and into the living area, his gaze happened onto the model of the USS Manhattan, his first posting as Chief Operations Officer… and he stopped dead in his tracks. He knew what was missing, and the thought made his throat close up and his mouth go dry.


He had known her less than a week… and that was going on a year past. “She probably doesn’t even remember me…” he mumbled, even as the memory of their one and only meal together in the Officer’s Mess came unbidden to his mind.

He missed her. If he was honest with himself, he would admit he had since he left, but that was a part of himself he typically kept well in check… until just now.

Sure, he had thought about her quite a bit right after he left the Manhattan. But she was in the Delta Quadrant… so far removed as to be almost fictional. But… Hammor knew she had helped design and install the communications relay that allowed subspace calls through the worm hole. And he knew it was functional, or at least had been when he left, so…

The bag fell to the floor and he took three giant steps and plopped down in the chair at his desk. Tapping some commands into the interface, he requested a subspace channel to the Manhattan. It took a few minutes, but soon the face of a young Deltan appeared. =/\= USS Manhattan, Commander. What can we do for you, sir? =/\= she asked. =/\= Patch me through to Lieutenant Faye Calloway, if she is available please.=/\= The Ensign nodded and in a moment the screen showed a rotating Star Fleet icon as the call was relayed to wherever she was on the ship.

Hammor, COO
