Alex chuckled. =/\= Oh, it would be most unpleasant, I can assure you.” he said with a grin. “Probably something like sober karaoke or poem recitations from the collected works of some obscure Pakled poet.” and he chuckled. “Go on, Commander. And enjoy your happiness. That’s an order, too. =/\= he said and smiled at her.

“Geez, pushy aren’t we with that extra pip?” she deadpanned. Faye snapped out a salute, which was almost always irreverent. “Yes, Sir, going now Sir.” Faye leaned in and studied him more seriously. “You’re allowed to be happy too, Alex. Don’t forget that in all natural chaos of running a ship in the Delta Quadrant. If it applies to me, if most definitely applies to you.”

Alex smiled a rueful smile. “Geez, pushy ain’t we with that husband?” and a laughed softly. “I’ll keep it in mind. Take care, Faye. Don’t be a stranger.” and he waved and let comms close.

Faye chuckled as the screen went dark and was replaced by the Starfleet emblem. She spun in her chair, giving Tess a pat as she got up. “Dag?” she called out.
“I’ve been ordered to to go the holodeck, do you believe that?” she said. “I thought he was done giving me orders when I was reassigned.” But Faye also loved it, and their usual banter. It was a strangely grounding thing to have right now when she was still settling in here and so much was in flux.

Daggum looked up from his comic and said “He’s a Fleet Captain now. Pretty sure he gets to order almost everybody… regardless of their physical location.” and he laughed. “Besides, if he didn’t pull rank on you at least once while you two were talking, I’d think he was sick or something.”
Faye couldn’t help but think what Alex would do if they ever were the same rank at the same time and the implications of that very idle thought hit so swiftly it made Faye stagger a little and have to lower herself to the couch beside her husband. “Whoa…” she said. But she wasn’t alarmed, just… curious, her brain tripping down pathways that never would have been possible in previous phases in her life. What was she seeing herself as now, Commodore Calloway? Fates help her.
Her breath caught in her throat as she looked over at him. “I think I better go to the holodeck now and get my brain out of that scary rabbit hole it just went down,” she said, leaping to her fleet and spinning as she walked backwards. “Because a future where there is a Commodore or Admiral Calloway gives me all sort of shivers down my spine and kind of makes me want to throw up.”
