Once the majority of the crew had landed and were on their shore leave, Jenn settled in the big chair, supervising the skeleton crew that had been left behind.

They’d get their turns on the planet’s surface later - it was a rotating crew. “Thanks for volunteering to stay up here,” she commented to one of the bridge crew, the NE at helm.

“We’re of the same mind,” Jennifer said with a small nod. “Sitting in orbit while everyone else is down on the planet is vacation enough for me. It’s nice and calm on a skeleton crew.”
“As long as nothin goes wrong!”
“Don’t jinx it,” Jenn replied with a smirk.
