Amelia listened as the shuttle she was riding in was cleared to dock with the USS Atlantis. Amelia had a mix of emotions about this, she had been on leave for almost a year, working on her education and dealing with family. With everything finally under control she had applied for placement on a ship and now here she was. As the shuttle settled on the deck and the bay repressurized she stepped off the shuttle provided her security clearance and headed to her quarters to drop off her bag, the rest of her belongings would be arriving later. She still needed to check in with the Captain and complete her boarding checks.
As Amelia rode the turbo various crew entered and exited it sometimes nodding hello and other times so engrossed in their work they did not seem to even notice others in the futuristic elevator. Two floors from her stop a woman with dark hair entered the turbo wearing the blue of a medical officer. “Are you Barnes,” she asked the woman stepping in and leaning against the wall of the turbo casually.

Amelia nodded “I am.” She said extending her hand “And must be Shan?” She added have read the jackets on her team in Medical.
“Yes I am and boy we have been waiting for you,” she laughed. “As a doc we all signed up for late nights and weekends but being down staff has made the sick bay my quarters. My boyfriend has to be a malingerer just to get quality time with me. I would love to walk you through the cases and show you your new home when you get the chance?”

“I would love that.” Amelia said “I understand the living at work. I was Director of Medcine on OED and when staff were down I filled in.”
“I was on the OED a lifetime ago.” Lauren paused as if in deep thought with her memory. Those were some tough years but ultimately helped to set her life straight. She didn’t want to relive them but would never forget. “The Atlantis is a far different beast with a far different CO. Not different as bad but more like Buck Rogers had a baby with Roy Rogers and produce Jack Sparrow. There is a running joke we don’t actually fly under Federation insignia but a Jolly Roger. You are in for a wild ride.”
Amelia smiled “Give me an hour to meet with the Captain. And I’ll bring coffee.” She said
“For me or her because I am pretty sure it is not blood that runs through Kelly’s veins but caffeine. Take your time and can’t wait to show you around.” The door to the turbo opened and Lauren stepped out leaving Amelia to continue about her day.

Amelia nodded “See you soon.” She said making a mental note about the coffee and the Captain. As for the wild ride, she was looking forward to it. She had been teaching for far too long and needed some sort of adventure.
