Posted by Lieutenant Commander Faye Calloway (Chief Intelligence Officer) in Holodeck 2- Phaser Tag
A shot streaked over her head as she dove to the mat, rolling to her back and preparing to aim. As soon as she had a clear view, she caught out the round target that was firing at her and let one loose. Bingo! It beeped and turned off before it went zooming off.
Rolling to her stomach, a black-clad Calloway surveyed the contained space of the virtual phaser range. Yes, they had an actual one they could use for training, but she was, well, being cheeky. She knew Shock had booked it for training for his people and since their departments would overlap and interact, well, she figured she needed to work things out with them. And letting off steam with target practice certainly didn’t hurt either.
Another target came zooming in and pushed herself up quickly to her feet, crouching, her stormy grey-green eyes hungrily tracking the target. Without even thinking she brought her tiny Intelligence issue phaser to bear and fired. Bam!

Shock had booked the holodeck from 1345 hours until 1600. His senior officers would be here at 1400 hours. That would give him some time to check the the range and try it out for a few minutes.
As he entered the holodeck, he noticed that his programme was running. He had not anticipated that. Looking in, he saw a recognizable figure – that of Calloway’s. In his gutt, he noticed a sense of violation, which he immediately purged.
“Computer, end programme”, he ordered. He needed to see if Calloway was real or a hologram.
He saw her though, in the emptiness of the non-projecting holodeck, wearing her black clothes.
“Commander,” he calmly said, “You’ve been running my programme on my time-slot. Please explain.”
Any time now, his colleagues would arrive. He did not want any troubles then.
