Arrived at the lab, Kai looked everywhere “there it is!” He said with joy and relief “I can’t go with the holographic imager “Yeah, they asked us to take some photos! Incredible… let’s go?” He immediately took the back route toggling the lights to the lab “It will be fun, I assure you. My first away mission was something hilarious but also dangerous. As I think it will be something out of the extraordinary I must tell you to be aware of possible dangers. Here take this.” He handed a phaser and a PaDD to the Ensign “You know the Phaser. The PaDD will be useful later!”
And on the way of the shuttle bay, Kai awaited some sort of reply by the Ensign. Maybe some curiosity or perhaps… some sort of negative reaction.

“And phaser useful now or later too?” He teased having grabbed one of the belt kits, clippes it on and then holsters both items before walking with his chief. “so is it just you and me or are there going to be others coming, and just exactly where are we going?” Olly had more than a few questions but decided to keep them to a minimum.

“They said ‘we will send you someone!’ And I said ‘someone who? Mr. blue sky?’. How harsh! They did not even told me who… anyway here it is. Shuttle bay 1.”
Entering the shuttlebay, there was in the middle a shuttle type 11 ready to be used. On his starboard side the word “Cattaneo” was written. It was the name of the ship. “Remember that ladies, big or small they are, will take you home if you treat them like queens. Get your stuff there, we will start filling the shuttle in few moments.”

Olly looked around, this was the first time he had seen the particular shuttle bay and though much larger than most it carried all the usual things. He moved over to the equipment store and picked up an away steam science pack and some extra items which included a day worth of rations, an additional water pack, and a solar power charging pack which all fit nicely into the bag which he threw onto his back.

As both of them approached the Cattaneo, Kai moved around the ship and looked for any anomalies. Then he checked if someone was inside from the large window…
“Oliver… get your phaser. Someone is inside. And I do not think they’re friendly! Just do not shoot.” For some reason, the chief was giggling. Unusual for someone who just witnessed a probable enemy inside the shuttle
“Open the rear ramp and be careful…”

Doing as ordered Olly couldn’t help but wonder just how something hostile managed to board the ship and get into a shuttle without the sensors tripping or someone noticing. None the less he tapped the command console which opened the shuttle’s ramp his phaser at the ready for the potential threat the chief science officer perceived.

OOC: I dont see a response? An error?

The door slowly retracted to show a familiar site on the ship. Dark boots, red dress, but one thing was different. There was nothing in her hands. “Watching horror Holos again Olly,” she let out a laugh seeing her old time friend. It was good having Olly back and around on a steady basis. “I thought we all agreed no more Yeti movies after that cadet training tour on Maltan V.” The memory brought back a swell of warmth and happiness thinking about the memory. At the time they all thought it was going to be ghost stores and s’mores on that mission. Oh the folly of youth.

Lowering his phaser he smiled to Kelly, “Well what can I say wine and cheese with a good horror flick always gets a good sleep” Ofcourse that concoction would literally have him waking up in the middle of the night screaming which didn’t settle well with his roommate back at the academy so much so they had banned him from watching anything. “Besides I’m a grown-up now, I apparently know right from wrong” Holstering his weapon he chuckled.

“Olly,” Kelly drew out his name with a laugh. “Growing up is boring. We only pretend to be adults when we have to remember,” she patted his shoulder.

“Permission to come aboard chief,” Kelly leaned slightly to the side to see the CSO behind Oliver.

    Kai had already is phaser down for a while by now and he could not help but laugh and then pat Oliver’s shoulder “Yes Ma’am, permission granted. Hey we should get a movie night one of these days… the crew needs it Captain!” He then winked walking in the shuttle and laying down the gear “I got you Oliver uh?”

The junior science officer shook his head, “I think we need to work on your pranks Chief” Olly followed Kai into the shuttle and looked about. So whats the big deal anyway? Where are we off in such a rush ?” He asked looking between but the chief science officer and the Captain hoping one of them would explain further what was about to happen.

“That’s a question for your science chief. I still only read the reports when Ian sticks a note to them saying read this,” she half joked. Kai’s enthusiasm with science was contagious. It was also on warp drive. After serving with the science chief for about a year, Kelly had learned it was easier to embrace his ideas rather than ask questions. The science chief was brilliant and half the time Kelly felt like asking him questions just made her have more questions.

“Ahaha I still remember that!” The CSO laughed after the Captain’s joke “But really if you have questions, I do have answers that might lead to more questions, that lead to more answers that might lead to more and more questions…” he looked at both of them “I guess it wasn’t funny.”

“I however did need to drop something off for him before you guys go monitor a star or whatever you are planning today.” Pulling a small box from her pocket she held it out to Kingstone before taking a step back.

“Oh right the box! Yes this was the emergency, Captain could you take this holographic imager, perhaps?” He leant the machine so the woman could take it “There you go. Remember to take a picture!”

“A box and a picture” Mouthed Olly has he watched this odd conversation happen in front of him, before he had a moment to think however the Chief Science office was on him again.

“Its one of those snake in a box things,” Kelly winked at Olly. “Shhh” she mouthed with a grin. While it wasn’t the classic ten year old joke, there was something that was going to be a huge surprise in the box.

Taking out the black pip carefully from the box, Kai turned toward Oliver and smirked before saying stuff he never dreamt about saying ever in his life “Ensign Oliver Loughty,” he called the Ensign’s name “I today hereby promote you Lieutenant Junior Grade of my department and almost my favorite subordinate. Congratulations, Lieutenant Loughty!” His smile said everything, he was proud of him even tho it was really awkward being older than the CSO himself. Offering the hand to the freshly promoted Oliver he then raised a thumb up and posed for a photo “Say cheeseee!”

He didn’t have time to thank the Chief until he was turning to pose for the camera, grinning and saying “Cheeeese!” Oliver was a little bit confused, and awe struck that he had just been promoted. Despite his usual calm and humourous behavior his was a little speechless until he turned to them both and then said “Thankyou, both of you. I dont know what to say.” The pips were designed to be as weightless as possible but he swear his collar felt a thousand times heavier.

Kelly snapped the picture and moved over between her two officers. Holding the camera up at an angle she snapped another far more casual one of the three of them. Setting the camera down she reached out and hugged Olly. “I am so happy for you. I know you have been out of the uniform for almost as long as you were in it but,” Kelly let go leaning back on her heels rocking back and forth slightly as she spoke. She had done this fidget for as long as those in the academy had known her. It was her way of gloating when she had pulled one over on Perkins or was exceedingly happy like a small kid. Today it was a combination of both.

“I had a chat with Admiral McLaren and mentioned that your commendation on Graltalia Ten where you saved that monkey thing from extinction deserved more than a foot note in your career. Once I threw all the papers you published at him from the Universtity and pointed out how your name would now show up as Lt Jg on Bang and Gaggle searches it would just be a perfect PR piece. Besides you deserve it. You only had on brain fart which was when you left Starfleet, but you are back on the right track now.” Kelly was so thrilled for her friend. All his work, even if it wasn’t in starfleet was part of the Federation and created advancements in the scientific community at large.

Oliver couldn’t believe that Kelly had gone out of ehr way to speak with the Admiral, he ofcourse also knew the Admiral from back when they were all at the academy but to hear Kelly going out of her way and then listing his achievements filled him with immense pride and thankfulness towards her. He’d never forget this, and forget what she had done for him.

“I however have to go unfortunately. There is some comm call at 1345 that if I miss it, Ian is going to confine me to quarters,” she laughed. “Lt, Lt,” Kelly nodded to both men before she headed down the ramp and off the shuttle.

Captain Kelly Bordeaux

OOC: Congratulations Jake!!
Jenn

“And we dont want that” Joked Oliver back before adding, “Thankyou Captain, Kelly” He smiled, he wouldn’t usually call her by her first name but in front of Kai he knew neither would mind and her felt his thanks required a personal touch. “Now get out of here before Ian does really confine you to your quarters, and we have a job to do, dont we or was this just all part of the plan?” He looked to Kai directing his question to the chief science officer.

  • Lieutenant JG Oliver Loughty

“Bye Captain! Good luck” he smiled at her. Getting the shuttle prepared, Kai started the engine and closed the rear hatch and then he looked at Oliver “We do have job, silly! Now that you’re Lieutenant we’re going to harvest some plants for your lab. We have the wholeeee day!” He winked at him “Get in the Co-Pilot seat and let’s go!”
